EXCLUSIVE: "I've followed his work, and I've liked it" - director Ram Madhvani on wanting to do a comedy film with Kartik Aaryan before Dhamaka

Posted by on PP in

Bollywood actor Kartik Aaryan is gearing up for his next project, Dhamaka, which follows the story of an ambitious ex-news anchor Arjun Pathak, who is given another chance to go live on prime-time television when a terrorist calls him with a bomb threat. Little does he know that this call will change his life and throw him into a fast-paced game of betrayal. The film, which will release on Netflix, is directed by Ram Madhvani. The filmmaker spoke to Bollywood Hungama exclusively to discuss the film at length, working with Kartik and more.

EXCLUSIVE: "I've followed his work, and I've liked it" - director Ram Madhvani on wanting to do a comedy film with Kartik Aaryan before Dhamaka

Speaking about the idea behind Dhamaka, Ram Madhvani says, "The idea was Kartik Aaryan. I've wanted to work with him for a while. I've followed his work, and I've liked the work. Over time, over the years, we've been wondering what to do together. One of them was a comedy film that was meant to do, in the conversations that we've had. And then one of the conversations that he had was, what about this [Dhamaka]? And I said, 'Yeah, well, why not?' And then it was something which I realized because the film is about a man who wants to be successful, there is nothing wrong with that we all want to be successful and a man who's an ambitious man, but what are the value systems? Like the song says at the end 'Kya Khoya Kya Paya', while trying to get ahead, what will you lose? What will you gain, and I think in all our lives, at whatever stage junior or senior, there is a price that you have to pay and decide whether it's with your time or with your family time, or sometimes it's also with your own soul and with your value systems."

He further adds, "Therefore, the Dhamaka in this film, is really not just the Dhamaka that is there, which is a physical Dhamaka but there is actually a symbolic and metaphorical Dhamaka, which happens to him, the lead character who is a grey character. And he falls and it's in a way a tragic kind of story because, in his life, there is a Dhamaka about truth, love, and life. So all of these dhamakas is really what the film is about. I would, therefore say, more than anything else, it's a human story. And that's what I was interested in. Just like Ninja is not a hijack story. It's a mother-daughter story. It's about a family who overcomes the loss of their child. And I think over here, it's about at what price success? At what price ambition?".

Dhamaka is a remake of the South Korean movie Terror Live. Talking further about the film, when asked how he came up with Arjun Pathak who is willing to cross the line for that one breaking news on primetime. Madhvani says, "Well, that character is there. And it's not about one story or anything, it's about any opportunity that comes in our life in whichever industry that you are."

He adds, "It could have been the stock exchange, a club, the film industry, and whatever, that those opportunities that come our way. And when that opportunity comes knocking our way as they do in your life, in my life and the people who are watching this, in their lives, in whichever world and whichever businesses that they do, when that opportunity comes, what are you willing to pay for it? And sometimes that price is something which may come in the way of your own upbringing, or what your parents taught you or what you were told on how to behave? Sometimes it even comes in the way of your own personal work-life balance. So those are all the things that we are constantly juggling with and dealing with. We're faced with an opportunity every day. So what will what price would you pay?"

Kartik Aaryan turns a new page in his career with Dhamaka. After starring in what we call masala commercial entertainers since the beginning of his career, Dhamaka is one intriguing role he has taken up. When asked why Kartik was the right choice for the film, Madhvani says, "You have to ask Kartik, 'why me?' He has the power. I don't have the power. That's him. He has the green lighting power, Sushmita Sen has the green lighting power, Sonam Kapoor has the green lighting power, I don't have any power. I'm just somebody who's here, who's thankful that the actor is agreed to do a certain kind of work."

Furthermore, he says, "I know that I've sounded flippant when I was answering it, but I didn't mean to sound flippant. It is really Kartik Aaryan. A lot of the power of where, the choices that he makes, that's his choice. I keep saying I'm not here, to sort of force you or make you decide anything; you have to decide. It's when you commit, it's when you decide or when you choose. When I see the commitment when I see that, okay, that's the way I'm going to work, etc. When he buys into it, that's when it's his purchase. It's not mine. Okay? So he has to agree and genuinely in the world that we are in the green lighting power is invariable with the actor, no matter at what level and stage of success you are in. I'm so happy that Amrutha Subhash said yes to this film because she could have said, no! I'm so happy Mrunal Thakur said yes to this film because they have the power to say yes or no, I don't have that power. I just have to go and ask. I wish I had the power to say yes or no, I don't. So I just want to put that on record to say, okay, they have the power."

Dhamaka is premiering on November 19, 2021, only on Netflix!

Now, in a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, when asked about Deepika’s role in the film, Kabir said, “Deepika being the kind of person she is, the kind of actor she is, I think they also try to look at the project as a whole. There is holistic view to the film so its not always about what I am doing or what is my character doing. And I think Deepika looked at it like the kind of film she wants to be associated with and that’s why she is one of our producers.”

He further said, “She has a very significant role. Yes, it might not be in length equal to others but the fact is that it’s a really important role because Romi ji played a very important role in Kapil Dev’s life. There is a reason why the character is there and there is a certain dynamic that Kapil ji and Romi ji have that is very unique and we wanted to show that. I thought that the story would be incomplete if I did not show that.”

He adds, “I remember I rehearsed incessantly and put in a lot of hours to get every step bang on before the camera rolled. I’m glad to have found a dancing partner like Sharvari for 'Tattoo Waaliye' because she is also a perfectionist who likes to work hard to get everything spot on. We had an amazing time rehearsing and shooting the song with Saif sir and Rani ma’am. We were a house on fire.”

Sharvari is also over the moon about the first dance track of her career! "Bunty Aur Babli 2 is a special film for me because so many firsts of my career are going to be attached to this project. It is not only my big-screen debut but it has also given me my first big dance number as a heroine in Hindi cinema.”

She adds “I love dancing and I particularly love dancing to Hindi film songs. So, 'Tattoo Waaliye' is a dream come true in every aspect. Sid and I were in awe of Rani ma’am & Saif sir’s sizzling chemistry in the song and so we were inspired by them to bring out our version of a Bollywood power-pair. We had a blast shooting it & I hope the audience love the track too.

That’s my name.”

She tries to make Ieshaan understand the situation, the model-actor clarifies that he is a straight man and Rajiv’s statements about him are affecting his image. “I’m a straight guy and it is looking like there is something….” Raged out by the environment, Rajiv exclaims that he knows Ieshaan for two years.

"Fortunately my shooting has resumed," says Prakash Jha after shooting for Ashram was vandalized

Posted by on PP in

Sections claiming to belong to the Bajrang Dal vandalized and ransacked the set of Prakash Jha’s Ashram on October 24. The third season of the series featuring Bobby Deol as a debauched corrupt self-appointed godman was being shot in Bhopal when the ugly incident happened.

Fortunately my shooting has resumed, says Prakash Jha after shooting for Ashram was vandalized

Director Prakash Jha was also manhandled and ink was thrown on his face. Luckily he did not suffer any grievous injuries. Speaking exclusively to this writer Prakash Jha said, “All is well now. Thank you for your concern. The cops and the administration were prompt and effective. And luckily the shooting has resumed.”

The Producers Guild of India strongly condemned what it called “the brazen acts of violence, harassment and vandalism faced by the crew involved in the production of the series Ashram in Bhopal.”

The Guild went to add, “Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident and the Guild is alarmed to note the frequency with which both the production and exhibition sectors are severely and illegally disrupted by various elements with impunity…Content production contributes significantly to local economies, generates employment and promotes tourism which is why authorities in India and across the world formulate policies to attract producers to their respective regions. However, even more than incentives and benefits the very minimum that production units should expect is for these authorities to provide the guarantees of safety and security for their units. We urge the relevant authorities to take immediate and strict action against the perpetrators of these acts of violence and to bring them to justice."

In November 2020 the Karni Sena, never known to shy away from controversies, had galvanized into action against the second season of Ashram

According to the Karni Sena, the series was an insult to the Hindu religion. They sent a long legal notice to Prakash Jha stating, among other things, “The said web series have (sic.) deeply hurt the sentiments of the people at large and it is also going to spread negative goodwill(sic.) about Hindu religion on(sic.) future generations to come.”

When I had reached out to Prakash Jha for a reaction to the Karni Sena’s demand for a ban on Season 2 of Ashram, he had replied, “Who am I to make a judgment on their demand? We had 400 million-plus views for the first season. I think viewers are the best placed to decide on ‘negative goodwill’. Shall we leave it to them?”

The Karni Sena had earlier accused Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone of denigrating the Hindi religion in Padmaavat and had even threatened to cut off her nose.

EXCLUSIVE: Ajit Andhare looks back at the ten-year journey of Viacom18; shares his experience of working with Aamir Khan and box office prediction for Laal Singh Chaddha (Part 1)

Posted by on PP in

Among all the present and past studios of Bollywood, Viacom18 Studios stands out. Since its inception in 2011, it has backed some of the most memorable and significant films like Tanu Weds Manu (2011), Pyaar Ka Punchnama (2011), Gangs Of Wasseypur (2012), OMG Oh My God (2012), Special 26 (2013), Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013), Madras Café (2013), Queen (2014), Mary Kom (2014), Margarita With A Straw (2015), Gabbar Is Back (2015), Drishyam (2015), Manjhi – The Mountain Man (2015), Toilet – Ek Prem Katha (2017), Padmaavat (2018), Manto (2018), Andhadhun (2018), etc. If that’s not enough, it has also left a mark in regional cinema and in the web series space.

And the future looks brighter for this studio as it is a part of Aamir Khan-starrer Laal Singh Chaddha and Hrithik Roshan-Deepika Padukone starrer Fighter. Recently, Viacom18 was also in the news for striking a multi-film deal with Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.

Bollywood Hungama decided to interview Viacom18 COO and Ajit Andhare and ask him about his journey and a lot more. In the first part of our exclusive story, Viacom18's man-in-charge looks back at the first decade of Viacom18 Studios and shares interesting details about Laal Singh Chaddha.

The title card of Viacom18 Studios gives me goose bumps every time. It gives a glimpse of some of the films made by Viacom18 since its inception in 2011 and it makes you realize that several path-breaking films have come out from this studio. Could you tell us about Viacom18’s 10-year journey?
I am glad that you mentioned the title card of Viacom18. It also has the tagline that says ‘Redefining Indian cinema’. We have taken a rather tall task of saying that. I mean, you should keep your standards high, isn’t it (smiles)? So we are trying to live up to that.

For a country as diverse as India, our cinema was a little more simplistic and kind of one-size-fits-all. That has changed now and it started largely with the advent of the multiplexes. Post-liberalisation, our society became more equitable and we saw women making massive strides. We were able to capture this social trend in some of our women-centric cinema like Tanu Weds Manu, KahaaniQueenMargarita With A Straw etc. That’s the reason why these stories have touched a chord. Even Toilet – Ek Prem Katha did that. As a nation, we were trying to face the sad truth that our sanitation is not that great. And a film need not be inspirational or moralistic every time. Look at Andhadhun.

There have been other challenges. We had a trial-by-fire with Padmaavat but we pulled through it and ultimately, we had a good outcome.

When we started, there were studios like Disney, Fox, Eros and UTV. All of them have folded up. We have managed to survive and keep our flag flying! I am happy about the way things have shaped up. Moreover, we have been able to work with established people like Aamir Khan, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Vishal Bhardwaj, Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra etc, build a creative rapport with them and at the same time, give voice to younger filmmakers like Vikas Bahl, Umesh Shukla, etc.; that’s also been fuel for our success. And yes, we have won 6 National Awards in 8 years; it’s almost sounding like I am blowing my own trumpet!

So in our ten-year journey, we have been able to make the kind of cinema that drives us, our cinema got recognized both in terms of commercial success and critical acclaim and thirdly, we managed to make some sort of impact that Indian cinema stands for. Hence, that has fairly been a rewarding journey and it continues.

Besides making films, Viacom18 Studios has also dabbled into web series space with Tipping Point and have come up with shows like Jamtara, Taj Mahal 1989, She and Ray. How has been that journey?
We have come across a lot of stories that we were not able to make films on. This is because films require a certain kind of mounting and casting constraints. We need to tell our stories in 2 ½ hours. Hence, one is required to follow a screenplay structure. That’s the reason behind starting Tipping Point. Moreover, the series format frees you up from the theatrical pressures and the pressures of casting. It allows you to involve a lot of young talent. And thankfully, it was well-timed with the growth of the OTT movement in India. We were able to quickly build a portfolio within Tipping Point. Most of these series are going on to their subsequent seasons.

Laal Singh Chaddha will be Viacom18’s immediate release, on February 11, 2022. There’s tremendous buzz around the film due to the concept and Aamir Khan’s presence as the lead actor and co-producer. How excited are you about this film and how was the experience in securing the remake rights of Forrest Gump (1994)?
Laal Singh Chaddha is a win for us at several levels. We have always distributed the Hollywood slate of Paramount. With this film, we have also taken a marquee IP of Paramount’s crown jewel out of their catalogue. That itself is a major win. I went and met Jim Gianopulos (CEO, Paramount Pictures) and thankfully, he had exposure and awareness about India. He understood what this film could be with Aamir Khan leading the titular role which Tom Hanks played in the original version. It was Jim who convinced director Robert Zemeckis to give us the rights. I was also aware for a long time that Aamir wants to remake Forrest Gump. So that also helped. Also, Atul Kulkarni did a fantastic job with the adapted screenplay. It’s a tough film. It’s an allegorical tale and the script needed to be localized. And Atul excelled in doing so.

How has been the experience working with Aamir Khan?
It has been a memorable experience. It’s reassuring that some of our ways of working are strikingly similar to his process. For instance, he’s also a huge believer in scripts. I have heard often from certain people that they prefer going to the set, that the set talks to them, and that they’ll decide how they’ll take the shot while on the set and so on! I am much happier with Aamir’s model of having everything well-planned. He does table-reading. It gives you confidence and brings a lot of integrity to the filmmaking process. Also, his approach in making music is great and we had some wonderful sittings with Pritam and Amitabh Bhattacharya. It was great to see his judgment in music. He’s actually involved in every department, including costume! So I feel that I have gone to the University Of Aamir Khan and have graduated from there! Hence, I have enjoyed every minute of working on Laal Singh Chaddha.

We had a lot of challenges. There are several locations in the film. We were planning to shoot in Ladakh but we couldn’t initially due to the China situation. The Covid-19 pandemic also stalled the shoot. But we finally managed to wrap the shoot and now we are raring to go and release the film!

Aamir Khan is known to break box office records. One of his last films, Dangal (2016), collected Rs. 387.38 crore. No Hindi film has been able to go past this number. Now that cinemas have opened in Maharashtra and the situation would be much more normal by the time Laal Singh Chaddha releases, do you expect that it’ll break the record of Dangal?
At the moment, we are focused on making the best possible film. Whether the recovery from the theatrical space will exceed the economics of the film is a question that will be answered in a few months as audiences return to theatres, starting with Sooryavanshi. Many things are up in the air. My understanding is that the demand for content is very strong. The audiences are absolutely keen on having a theatrical experience. We have had a lot of consumption on the small screen to the extent that people are now clearly seeing a gap between a big screen experience vs a small screen experience. So sentiment-wise, I don’t have any doubt. Now, logistically, we don’t know what the situation would be then. We all have been talking about the third wave. Thankfully, things are much better and vaccination has crossed the billion mark. These are positive factors and February is still a few months away. Closer to the release, we’ll be in a better space to discuss box office.

EXCLUSIVE: Kabir Khan reveals why he did not direct Salman Khan starrer Tiger Zinda Hai and Tiger 3 after directing Ek Tha Tiger

Posted by on PP in

Noted filmmaker Kabir Khan is credited with some of the most successful films of Bollywood including New York, Ek Tha Tiger, and Bajrangi Bhaijaan among others. While he is known for his distinctive storytelling style, the one thing that he has stayed away from is franchises despite directing Ek Tha Tiger which paved the way for one of the biggest franchise movies in Bollywood. Ek Tha Tiger(2012) starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif took us into the world of Tiger, a RAW agent, and Zoya, an ISI agent. The sequel to the film Tiger Zinda Hai was released in 2017 which was directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. Currently, the shoot of Tiger 3 is underway with Maneesh Sharma directing it.

EXCLUSIVE: Kabir Khan reveals why he did not direct Salman Khan starrer Tiger Zinda Hai and Tiger 3 after directing Ek Tha Tiger

In a recent conversation with Bollywood Hungama at the El Gouna Film Festival in Egypt, Kabir Khan got candid on why he did not direct the sequel to Ek Tha Tiger. "For me, principally I am a storyteller. I feel that when I have made that film I am done with that story. I am done with that character. I am not living with that character anymore. I always do think about what would have happened to these characters after the film. I have a story in my mind but it has not excited me enough to go back and do a story with those characters," he shared.

“In our industry, the moment a film is a hit people start making a sequel. Not only in Tiger, after New York also people started saying when will the sequel be made. I told them that ‘if you have seen the film, you will see that all the characters die, about whom will I make the film?’. With Tiger, for me, it was one story. Yes, it had the potential of a franchise when we were writing but I was very clear that I am not going to do it and I have never been excited about franchises. You can imagine the pressure there is to make Bajrangi Bhaijaan 2. But for me, the story is over,” he added.

However, Kabir is also of the thought that ‘Never Say Never’. "Maybe 4-5 years down the line, suddenly a story comes up or somebody brings a story about one of the characters that I have created and I get really excited then I say 'hey I want to do it'. But that has not happened as of yet. I don’t get excited about going back and revisiting that character,” he concluded.

At the trailer launch event, Salman was asked by the press if he is critical of Aayush or holds himself back since he is family."“I keep my criticality within myself.

He further said, "But he is a sensible boy, he knows his stuff. He has his brains in the right place, he uses them as well. Padha likha chhokra hai and good at heart, abhi tak toh."

The 61-year-old  actor also said his heart goes out to Aryan, who he feels must be going through an intense range of emotions. Rajat also says that he as a parent would have got traumatised being at such a situation. But then Aryan Khan must be feeling that even his father being Shah Rukh Khan is not able to do anything.

"I feel I was born to entertain people in various avatars," says Siddhant Chaturvedi

Posted by on PP in

Actor Siddhant Chaturvedi shot into the limelight with his brilliant acting as rapper MC Sher in Gully Boy which also earned him a lot of acclamation. Given his prowess in front of the camera, Siddhant landed his first role as the quintessential masala Hindi film hero in Yash Raj Films’ rib-tickling family entertainer Bunty Aur Babli 2. He plays the New Bunty in this laugh out loud con film and will be seen donning multiple disguises to pull off intricate and elaborate heists!  

Siddhant says, “I’m getting to be so many people in Bunty Aur Babli 2 because of the number of disguises we have managed to pull off in the film! For an actor like me, that was an exciting proposition because I could show people what all I can do in my first film as the quintessential masala Hindi film hero.”

He adds, “Each disguise came with a lot of prep, each character required me to pull off different accents and body language. It was a very tough one to do because each character needs to stand out for the film to work. I had an amazing time because this is what I feel I was born to do - entertain people in various avatars and hopefully do a good job at that every single time.”

Bunty Aur Babli 2 also features Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji as the original Bunty and Babli. Gorgeous debutant Sharvari plays the new Babli who is hot, intelligent and tech-savvy. This comedy will pit two sets of con artists, from different generations, against each other as they try to prove who is the better con-couple!

Very less films have been released but whenever it's released in horror, it does great business."
