EXCLUSIVE: Maitree star Namish Taneja says he can’t do anything else than acting; calls his decade-long journey “beautiful”

Posted by on PP in

Shrenu Parikh, Bhaweeka Chaudhary, Zaan Khan and Namish Taneja starrer show Maitree has finally premiered on ZEE TV. For the unversed, the recently released daily shop revolves around friendship and betrayal. In a conversation with Bollywood Hungama, lead star Namish Taneja opened up about various aspects of the show as well as his real life. Here are some excerpts: How male lead manages to shine when it's a female-centric show?  Personally, I'm so lucky that most of the shows that I have done are female-oriented serials. Now, here, I want to mention that I always received the same amount of respect. So I never thought of that aspect while signing a show. And, somewhere I feel TV shows are for the female audience, especially. Personally, it was neither difficult nor challenging for me given that I get equal respect. In fact, in a couple of my shows, I have played on the front foot. How would you describe your ten-year-long journey in the business of entertainment? It's a beautiful journey. I had never thought that I would become a TV star and the audience would love me. So, it has been beautiful so far, and I am hoping it's beautiful in the future as well. If not an actor, what was your backup plan? I never had a backup plan. But now, I feel I can’t do anything else than act. How did you manage to keep yourself motivated during dull moments? Ups and downs are a part of life. As far as motivation is concerned, I keep learning and charging myself. I attend workshops or watch legendary actors' interviews. I have an aim, and until I achieve it, I will keep motivating myself. There is always a debate differentiating between an actor in TV, OTT, and film. What is your take on it? For me, when I am auditioning for anything, be it TV, OTT or a film, I give my 100%. Speaking on a personal note, I feel when we do TV, an actor doesn't get that much time to prepare or learn the dialogue for our scenes, because sometimes, the broadcast is on the same day. Whereas, in the case of OTT and films, an actor gets that liberty. So they differ from each other only on the grounds of preparation. There are certain stereotypes that TV actors are loud. But, what I will do in TV, I will do the same in OTT and film as well. What your character, Ashish, is expected to bring in Maitree? As Ashish, I will highlight how much emotions and friendship are important in life. And, how an honest guy like Ashish believes in leaving in the present time, how he showers love on his dear ones. As Ashish in Maitree, I just want to focus on telling the importance of honesty.

EXCLUSIVE: “Besharam Rang writer Kumaar is a genius”, explains composers Vishal-Sheykhar; watch

Posted by on PP in

It’s been two weeks since Pathaan was released in theatres, and the Shah Rukh Khan starrer is still performing well at the box office. Besides being an action thriller, the film bagged numerous headlines for its song ‘Besharam Rang’. While speaking about the song with Bollywood Hungama, music-composers Vishal Dadlani and Sheykhar Ravjiani opened up about various aspects of it. Amid this, Vishal-Sheykhar also gave a shout-out to lyricist Kumaar for making a beautifully poetic song while calling him a genius. It all happened when we asked the duo to shed some light on the journey of reaching the title of the song, ‘Besharam Rang’. While giving the credit to Kumaar, Vishal asserted, “Kumaar is the only lyricist in this business, who doesn’t write. Woh aap ko bolte hai mai jo bol raha hu likho. Aur agar woh aapney nahi likha samay par, toh woh gaya (He asks others to write, and if, by any chance, you miss it, it’s gone).” Upon this, Sheykhar added, “He is genuinely the most spontaneous and natural lyricist. Sometimes he says something and leaves the room. Then, we look at each other and ask does he even know what he just wrote.” When mentioned that Kumaar is a humble person, Vishal immediately said, “He has to be humble because he doesn’t know how he does it. If someone does it with a thought process, they are a genius.  But someone like him is a wanderer.” Sheykhar concluded the conversation by adding, “He is connected to the higher force and he is totally spiritual.” Speaking of the song, ‘Besharam Rang’, sung by Shilpa Rao and choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant, the Deepika Padukone song is shot in Spain.

Mouni Roy aces the power-suit game in an electric blue pantsuit with a bustier, fitted pants and long shrug

Posted by on PP in

Bollywood's prominent ladies are constantly ready to take on power as the times change. Even better when they don their trendy attire to embody their "Boss Lady" persona. One of the most expressive ways to convey your individuality is via fashion. A power suit is the epitome of attractive and audacious. Although it has become trendy for women to wear stylish blazers with pants or a classic three-piece suit, a power suit still packs a powerful fashion punch, and we are here for it. Given that a pantsuit may unquestionably revolutionise your professional attire, here is one example that can be easily imitated. Our inspiration for some incredible fashion sense comes from Mouni Roy. She is well renowned for her acting skills, but you also can't help but notice her fantastic sense of style. Mouni knows how to nail every costume that is thrown her way, whether she is on a beach vacation or walking the red carpet in her breathtakingly stunning outfits. Mouni Roy has always had remarkable style progression. She has always been quite daring and taken chances by dressing in ways that are wholly uncharacteristic of her comfort zone. Her blue pantsuit stood out among the numerous stylish styles she had worn. The actress, wearing a gorgeous tailored pantsuit, nodded her approval of the vivid colour. The actress is mastering the art of power dressing. She brightened our day in the most fashionable manner wearing an electric blue pantsuit that had a bustier and perfectly tailored pants with a flare at the hemline. But her trench coat with power shoulders was what truly gave her outfit a twist. She chose to keep her hair extremely smooth and to go for a nude makeup look with contoured cheekbones and kohl-lined eyes. She simply required her personality as an accessory to be the boss babe that she is. On the work front, Mouni featured in the Ayan Mukerji and Karan Johar-produced film Brahmastra. Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, and Nagarjuna all had significant parts in the film. On September 9, 2022, the first part of Karan Johar's movie released in theatres. Both fans and critics praised Mouni's portrayal of Junoon. She will play Junoon again in the second instalment of Brahmastra. In Dance Bangla Dance season 12, Mouni is a judge. Additionally, she is working on the movie Virgin tree.

Rakhi Sawant and her history of apparent flash-marriages and flash-separations

Posted by on PP in

At one point of time one used to find Rakhi Sawant entertaining. She did what she did to be noticed. She knew it. The world knew it. All through her dumb charade of marriages breakups makeups and other tamasha, she remained very respectful towards, and constantly ensuring that she didn’t cross the line with this writer. But over the years and especially in recent times, it is impossible to take Sawant seriously. She would get married and in the few next days the marriage would be annulled. The latest in her string of ‘husbands’ is Adil Khan Durrani who is now a famous man thanks to his notorious ‘wife’ who has made serious allegation against her ‘Shohar’, apparently had him arrested and then was seen lovingly feeding him. The media starved for sensationalism, takes Rakhi’s antics as ‘entertainment’. It fills the pages. But think of what it does to the credibility level of entertainment journalism! For a very long time I stopped all communications with Rakhi Sawant. Then last year a politician had called Navjot Singh Sidhu the ‘Rakhi Sawant of Indian politics’. Rather than Sidhu, it was Rakhi who took offence and threatened to take the politician to court. Her ‘husband’ a mysterious guy named Ritesh also rose to his wife’s defence. “What does he mean by using my wife’s name in such a demeaning way? To me Rakhi is one of the kindest, nicest most generous people I’ve met. Unhein kissika dukh dekha nahin jaata. If a woman is raped in any part of India her heart bleeds. If she sees a hungry child she weeps like a child. Whatever Rakhi is today she is self-made. You may find her behaviour strange. But Rakhi is Rakhi. There is no one else like her. To have a politician use a woman’s name in such a cheap way says a lot about how much politicians of our country respect women.” I felt relieved that Rakhi had finally zeroed in on her soul mate. But she proved me wrong. A week later ‘Ritesh’ disappeared from her life as quickly as he had appeared. Even for all those who enjoy Rakhi Sawant’s antics, her latest husband stunt is a bit too much to digest. It’s not surprising that Rakhi Sawant tries to take the media for a ride over and over again. What is surprising is that a section of the media gets taken in each time. Ms Sawant has declared herself married at least five times in the past. Before the mysterious ‘Ritesh’ she was ‘married’ to a Pakistani stand-up comedian who was apparently too gay to be any woman’s bridegroom. Then in August 2019 Ms Sawant was at it again. This time she claimed she was married at the Marriott hotel on July 28 to an ‘NRI’. However a cursory check at the venue would show there was no wedding, certainly not Rakhi Sawant’s, on the aforementioned date. After reading about her ‘marriage’ to ‘Ritesh’ I had sent a congratulatory message to Ms Sawant. She replied with a coy thanks. Then I asked who the lucky guy was. She responded by saying that she can’t reveal his name. Immediately after this, she sent a voice message saying, his name is Ritesh, and that if I interviewed her she would reply to all my questions. Significantly there was not one picture of Ms Sawant’s supposed husband ‘Ritesh’ anywhere. On June 18, 2020 when I again asked her if she is married Ms Sawant categorically replied she was not. This woman who marries and un-marries (can’t call it a divorce as there is nothing legal about Sawant’s flash-marriages and flash-separations) has caught Javed Akhtar’s attention. Rakhi Sawant and Javed Saab met some years back on a flight. She told him about her childhood and he promised that someday he would like to write a script based on her life . Javed Saab better be careful with the spouse-count. All the men who married and unmarried this intriguing woman would want to be part of her bio-pic.

EXCLUSIVE: Composer duo Vishal-Sheykhar shed light on genesis of Besharam Rang; credits lyricist Kumaar

Posted by on PP in

Shah Rukh Khan’s latest release, Pathaan, had been at the centre of controversy due to its song ‘Besharam Rang’. For the unversed, the use of the term “Besharam Rang” filmed on a heroine wearing a saffron colour bikini did not go down well with a couple of fringe groups. From the makers to the actors, all were brutally trolled online and offline for making certain choices and set-up in the song. In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, ‘Besharam Rang’ composers Vishal Dadlani and Sheykhar Ravjiani, popularly known as Vishal-Sheykhar, briefly spoke about the genesis of the Deepika Padukone starrer song. During the conversation, while speaking about the making of ‘Besharam Rang’, the duo had also revealed that the song had a different intro and the title of the song, ‘Besharam Rang’, was earlier its hook line. Upon this, Sheykhar explained why they skip a standard Vishal-Sheykhar song because of “an old-school” thought process. When asked how they come to 'Besharam Rang’ as their hook line, Vishal asserted, “honestly genius on this one is Kumaar. He took the brief and translated it into lyrics in the most beautiful way possible. The idea was there's a girl, who is incredibly attractive by her sheer lack of innovation, and he conveyed the same in such a beautiful and poetic manner.” Meanwhile, speaking of its brief, Vishal explained that they were told that it’s a female song, it is a sensual song. In fact, they didn’t know the location and set-up of the song, when they were creating it. Filmed on Deepika Padukone, ‘Besharam Rang’ is sung by Shilpa Rao and choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant.

Sharvari Wagh looks like an angel in disguise in an ivory lehenga by Falguni & Shane Peacock as she attends the wedding celebration of Ramesh Taurani's daughter

Posted by on PP in

In a recent private wedding ceremony, Raveena Taurani, the daughter of renowned film director Ramesh Taurani, married Apoorva Kumar. Later, on February 7, Tuesday, the senior producer arranged a lavish wedding reception for the newlyweds in Mumbai. Some of the most well-known Bollywood actors, including Ayushmann Khurrana, Suniel Shetty and his son Ahan Shetty, Riteish Deshmukh, Raveena Tandon, Sonakshi Sinha, Huma Qureshi, and many more, attended the reception, which was a star-studded affair. Whether you choose a ballgown for your princess moment, a stunning lehenga in an outlandish colour to make a statement, or a curve-hugging pre-draped sari to express a show-stopping silhouette, the wedding reception is the ideal opportunity to personalise your attire. The celebrity guest Sharvari Wagh, who was also present at the reception and wowed us with her ethnic attire, and her lehenga is all you need to go to for inspiration. When it comes to Indian cultural clothing, chikankari is an excellent choice whether the garment is traditional ivory or a brighter colour. If you don't already have a gorgeously embroidered outfit, let Sharvari serve as your inspiration. Falguni & Shane Peacock were responsible for creating Sharvari's lehenga. The blouse had to be the star of her costume because the voluminous skirt had delicate white embroidery over a barely-there pink background. Her blouse, which had a plunging neckline and half sleeves as well as a pattern of small floral-shaped sequins all over it and metallic tassels at the end, added a whimsical, modern touch to the modest design on her skirt. Her delicate pink tulle dupatta had a lace border with mirror work as well. Sharvari picked a pair of statement diamond earrings and a choker to finish her festive appearance, leaving her neck and hands bare. Her makeup complemented her uncomplicated appearance: radiant complexion, a hint of coral eye makeup, pink lips, and a low bun accented with white and pink flowers. The final look, which is both traditional and romantic, would be ideal for a bride who like to keep things simple, and because of its adaptability, you can use it for occasions other than your own wedding.

Golden Globe-winning composer MM Keeravani opens up on how film music has evolved; says, “I had to consciously maintain the difference between North Indian and South music, but not anymore”

Posted by on PP in

The year’s begun on a solid note for composer and singer M.M. Keeravani, known to Hindi films as M.M. Keeravani, with the 80th Golden Globe award for Best Original Song with ‘Naatu Naatu’ from RRR, the Critics’ Choice award by the American-Canadian Critics’ Choice Association (CCA) and an Oscar nomination for the 95th Academy Awards. As a full-fledged score, he has also won the LAFCA (Los Angeles Film Critics’ Association) trophy as well. And three more nominations are pending—all from US! Recognizing this humongous talent who has composed music for around 250 films in 5 languages over 32 years, the government of India has also conferred the Padma Shri on him. Ask if all these honours were expected, and the composer-singer replies affably, “I don’t expect anything. I just do my work. Expectations only lead to despair and disappointment!” The composer has also delivered solid aces in Hindi—Mahesh Bhatt’s Criminal and Zakham, Sudhir Mishra’s Iss Raat Ki Subah Nahin, Tanuja Chandra’s Sur, Pooja Bhatt’s Jism, Amol Palekar’s and Shah Rukh Khan’s Paheli. When we met many years ago, he had stressed on how his Hindi music (“Unlike that of my colleagues down South”) had nothing Southern in tenor or texture, while his South Indian scores were totally unlike a Hindi film score. M.M. Kreem stated, “I have been a Binaca Geet Mala since childhood. Among the composers, I have a special regard for Madan Mohan-ji. I know what I must do.” So with his cousin, filmmaker S.S. Rajamouli, stepping into Hindi-Telugu and more multilingual films like the Bahubali franchise and now RRR, how does he approach the music of such films? Says Kreem candidly, “Not just music, but we have to divide even movies and arts as before 2G and 3G and after them!  Earlier, I had to consciously maintain the difference between North Indian and South Indian music, but not anymore. Just imagine a truck-driver delivering goods from Kashmir to Kanyakumari today. As he drives for four days, he now passes through so many states and listens to all kinds of songs on the way—Bengali, Marathi, Western, Egyptian, Christian devotionals, South Indian and so on. He has now got attuned to global music. So there is no need to maintain a particular regional texture anymore!  And I call Bahubali and RRR World Music.” And the way things have gone, he is right.

Posted by on PP in

To shoot this sequence in Dubai, it just looked impossible. But the Dubai police and the authorities made it happen for us!”  He added, “My friends, who live at the Boulevard, came and told me that they got circulars saying on this day between this time, you will not be able to access the boulevard so please plan your days. And they were amazed that - oh my god... that's for my film!”  Sid further stated, “I said I can't believe it and this wouldn't have been possible if they had not agreed to our vision and supported us wholeheartedly.

Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor reveals details about his upcoming project; says, “I want the Abhinav Bindra biopic to be a theatrical”

Posted by on PP in

Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor was cast as the role of Olympic gold medallist shooter Abhinav Bindra in 2017. Given Abhinav's trip, there has been a lot of interest in the project since then. Harsh Varrdhan updated Times Of India regarding the progress of the project.  ETimes quoted Harsh saying, “I am acting and producing that film with my father (Anil Kapoor). Abhinav is a unique individual. He is not your stereotypical athlete. He is a very quiet guy and has a dry sense of humour. Shooting is a very psychological sport, and this is not your standard rags-to-riches story. We are trying to develop a narrative that is true to who Abhinav is. We are trying to make it cinematic and, at the same time, true to his nature and life.”  Harsh Varrdhan plans to release the film in 2024. He revealed, “This year, we will shoot and edit the film. It should be out next year. It will be my first theatrical film after six years. My last release was Bhavesh Joshi Superhero in 2018. I want the Abhinav Bindra biopic to be a theatrical. I am very ambitious, and while films like Ray and Thar, which I have been a part of, are unique pieces (OTT releases), I believe that just because your films are not conventional, it doesn’t mean that they can’t make money. I refuse to believe that. I want to make a difference and do something about it. I feel this film will be an original piece of work and I have faith that if we end up executing what we have in our mind and heart, people will love it.”  Abhinav had previously stated to BT regarding the film, he said, “Often in sports biopics, you see athletes as strong individuals. They are almost like superhumans. That’s the message that comes across, but athletes are as ordinary and vulnerable like anybody else. I was an extremely ordinary and vulnerable guy who worked hard. I would like that to come across in my biopic.” Speaking of Harsh, he had said, “He works hard, is a thinker and will do a good job. How he gets into my mind space to portray me on screen as far as my mannerisms or wit is concerned, is up to him.”  Also Read: Here’s what Anil Kapoor had to say when son Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor confessed that he has no money

Anurag Kashyap reveals his experience working with Abhishek Bachchan; says, “He was very brattish in the beginning. He’d make fun of everything, not take things seriously”

Posted by on PP in

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap remarked about his experience working with Abhishek Bachchan, saying that the actor has evolved dramatically in the years since his debut. Anurag collaborated with Abhishek as a dialogue writer in Mani Ratnam's film Yuva, and then directed Abhishek in Manmarziyaan, and had noticed a massive change in him.  Anurag recalled anecdotes of working with Amitabh Bachchan in an interview with The Lallantop, which prompted him to discuss Abhishek. Amitabh, he claimed, was always open to constructive criticism and a man of his word.  In an interview with The Lallantop, Anurag Kashyap stated, “We (Abhishek and Anurag) worked together on Yuva. I wrote the dialogues for that film. My brother was also an AD on it, and we worked quite a bit with Abhishek on the dubbing of that film as well... He’s a very hard-working person. He’s cultured, loves food. But he was very brattish in the beginning. He’d make fun of everything, not take things seriously. But people grow, and he grew. That Abhishek and the Abhishek I worked with on Manmarziyaan are two entirely different people.”  Speaking of Amitabh, Anurag highlighted the actor's reaction to being requested to tone down the Amitabh Bachchan-ness of his portrayal in Yudh. He said, “He takes criticism well. I noticed that he was delivering a typical Amitabh Bachchan-style performance, and I wanted something more real, and this is what I told him.”  On the professional front, Abhishek Bachchan has appeared in many streaming projects, including Breathe: Into the Shadows, Ludo, Bob Biswas, The Big Bull, and Dasvi.   On the other hand, Anurag's latest film, Almost Pyaar with DJ Mohabbat, hit theatres last week. The musical romantic drama written and directed by Anurag features Alaya F alongside debutant Karan Mehta.  Also Read: Anurag Kashyap recalls the time Sunny Deol rejected a script for Dharmendra saying, “Deols don’t die”

It is a confluence of genres that makes it very exciting musically. It is almost an old-school melody paired with a modern beat that is influenced by Afro beat but is electronic. What I love most is how a true melody transcends language, because while (singer) Shilpa (Rao) is singing it, it sounds like a very traditional Indian melody and (singer) Caralisa (Monteiro) and I are singing a Spanish version of that melody and it sounds authentic there too.” Meanwhile, Pathaan is still going strong at the box office and is now in the race to reach the mammoth number of Rs 500 crores nett in India.

Newly-married couple Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani are a royal display of ethnic style in red Manish Malhotra ensembles as they arrive in Delhi

Posted by on PP in

The gorgeous nuptials of Kiara Advani and Sidharth Malhotra are now all the rage and we guarantee the wedding fever will persist for some time. On their Instagram accounts, the couple posted a number of images to offer us a taste of the most popular wedding. One of the numerous fairy tales is the tale of their love. However, the topic of their marital style is one we never tyre of talking about. As is the norm in contemporary Bollywood, the couple exchanged vows in a small ceremony at the Suryagarh Jaisalmer. Without a question, Kiara Advani and the love of her life created a lovely couple. Just when we began to recover from the wedding mania revealed on their personal Instagram, Kiara Advani and Sidharth Malhotra arrived in Delhi for the first time as husband and wife and drew the attention of the photographers in their brilliant red ethnic attire. Red is the colour of choice for Indian brides since it is regarded as the most holy hue and represents prosperity, strength, and the beginning of a new life. Because Kiara and Sidharth's wedding was deeply entrenched in Indian culture, the pair also chose red for their media appearance. Kiara Advani and Sidharth Malhotra continued the practise of wearing matching red dresses by Manish Malhotra, much as they did during their wedding. In a high-low salwar suit with a plunging V-neckline, matching pants, and a sheer organza dupatta to finish the monotone ensemble, Kiara Advani was decked out in all the regalia of a bride. We adore how she opted for a more natural look while letting her bridal glow and her vivid red sindoor do the talking. To combat the waning winter nights in Delhi, Sidharth Malhotra wore his red kurta with a white salwar, brown leather juttis, and a flowery shawl. Meanwhile, the couple tied the knot on February 7 at Suryagarh Palace, Jaisalmer. The two met while filming the movie Shershaah. Although Kiara Advani and Sidharth Malhotra only recently made their relationship official on Instagram, it appears to us that their love story is meant to last. We wish Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani many more years of marital joy, love, and stylish moments together.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Bollywood Hungama????

EXCLUSIVE: Sheykhar Ravjiani reveals ‘Gobar’ is Siddharth Anand’s favourite word to describe disappointment; Vishal Dadlani adds, “Still the polite version”, watch

Posted by on PP in

There are multiple reasons why Pathaan went on to become a blockbuster such as Shah Rukh Khan’s comeback, Deepika Padukone’s never-seen-before avatar, and John Abraham playing the antagonist. However, very few noticed that the director-composer trio, Siddharth Anand and Vishal-Sheykhar, also played an important role in making the music album of the film an instant hit. The trio has collaborated on a bunch of projects. During an exclusive video interview with Bollywood Hungama, Vishal-Sheykhar shared some interesting anecdotes and revealed their friend Siddharth’s favourite word when he is disappointed during the making of Pathaan’s music album. While recalling that there was a week-long phase when they refused to enter the studio, Vishal shared that they drank a lot of coffee to crack the music of Pathaan. Vishal added that they causally sat in a coffee shop and met numerous people including a bunch of actors. Sheykhar continued and remembered how they use to request lyricist Kumaar to give something to them and it used to leave Siddharth disappointed. As Sheykhar said that the director dismissed their ideas by calling it “Bakwaas”, Vishal interrupted and said, “Bakwaas is not the word he used. But we leave that word out.” Upon this, Sheykhar said it was “Gobar”, which means cow dung. He concluded by saying, “He is gobar kind of guy.” Meanwhile, Vishal jokingly added that he “is not saying that,” along with adding that “Gobar is still the polite version.” Elaborating further, Sheykhar asserted, “We are friends since 2003. We are at each other's homes having dinners or we are hanging out together. So, we are allowed to say whatever we want to say to each other.” Speaking of Pathaan, the spy thriller continues to roar at the box office. Also Read: EXCLUSIVE: ‘Besharam Rang’ secret REVEALED!

Vivek Agnihotri wraps up the final schedule of The Vaccine War in Hyderabad

Posted by on PP in

Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri's upcoming film The Vaccine War has always been in the headlines ever since its announcement. As the film has created a lot of chatter about the pathbreaking story that will be a tribute to the endless support and dedication of the medical fraternity and scientists, the filmmaker has also kept the audience's excitement about the film at the edge by bringing the progress of its shooting schedules and now good news for the fans has arrived as the film has wrapped up its final schedule. We got more involved with the film over time and the kind of news updates we received in the form of star cast portraying in the film. Veteran names like Nana Patekar, Pallavi Joshi, and Anupam Kher while the new age sensation Kantara actress Sapthami Gowda is also a part of the film. Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri has always brought his vision of creating a change in society and bringing reality to the audience on the screens, and The Vaccine War is one such project from the filmmaker that will open many stories about the pandemic era. The filmmaker has started his journey of structuring the film by commencing the shoot in  Lucknow. With his sheer belief in the story, Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri shot the film around different places and now the film has been wrapped in Hyderabad. Producer and actor Pallavi Joshi says, "The Vaccine War is unlike any other film that we have ever done under 'I Am Buddha' productions. Science thriller is a very new genre and it's a very difficult genre but we decided to accept the challenge. I think 100% marks should go to Vivek for accepting this challenge of writing and directing this film.  All the actors - Nana Patekar, Nivedita Bhattacharya, Sapthami Gowda, Girija Oak, Yagya Turlapathi and myself, we found ourselves in a completely alien territory because the scientific terminologies that we had to use in his film were so difficult and something that we had never heard of in life.” She further added, “So saying them became a challenge for us in the beginning but within a week I think we all found the scientist within us and we were speaking all the scientific terminologies as if we were born speaking them. It was a great sight to see all of us transform into very confident scientists and after the end of the shoot, we were all only discussing science which was a very hilarious thing to happen because until before the film began none of us knew any ABC about science whatsoever.  Our technical team was most under stress because this film was shot very differently, technically it is a very different film.” Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri has shared before that it took around one year to research the subject and present the correct facts to the audience. The story of the film is written on 3200 pages and 82 people worked on the story day and night. For conducting efficient research, the team met the real scientists and people who developed the vaccine. The film is all about, how difficult and pressure it is for Indian scientists always from foreign countries and the medical world overall.

EXCLUSIVE: ‘Besharam Rang’ lyricist Vishal Dadlani reveals Shilpa Rao was involved with the song even before the lyrics

Posted by on PP in

There was a lot of political controversy around the song ‘Besharam Rang’ from Pathaan when the song was released. But once it died down, the track started gaining appreciation for what it is. Along with Deepika Padukone and Shah Rukh Khan’s chemistry, Shilpa Rao’s voice too has succeeded in mesmerizing the audience. During an exclusive video interview with Bollywood Hungama, composer duo Vishal Dadlani and Sheykhar Ravjiani, popularly known as Vishal-Shekhar, were all praise for Shilpa. When it was pointed out to Vishal that Shilpa’s voice has a lot of texture, he said, “And the beautiful thing with her is that she is not doing the texture. That’s just who she is. It’s effortless. We have a long-standing relationship. We have been working since ‘Khuda Jaane’ (from Bachna Ae Haseeno).” Vishal added that Siddharth Anand, the director of Pathaan, and Shilpa Rao have a unique relationship as well. “It is not often that you see a relationship between a director and a singer,” he said. Chipping in with his view on the singer, Shekhar added, “Shilpa is also one of my favourite singers. She is very real. I feel being real and honest is always a part of your art. She is not trying to be someone else. She is not trying to modulate her voice. She is what she is. And that makes the song really special.” Vishal revealed that Shilpa was involved with ‘Besharam Rang’ even before the song was fully penned. “On this one, she sang from scratch; before we had the lyrics,” he said. “Then she came back and sang it after (we had the lyrics). It’s an unusual way of working.” Pathaan has been breaking several records at the box office. The film, which also stars John Abraham, Dimple Kapadia and Ashutosh Rana, has almost reached Rs 450 crores in India itself.

Aren't you too keen to find out? So, here's what Mohit Bijlani says: "I was always allured by the vigorousness of the nightlife world. The buoyancy affected me so greatly that I want to be a curator and not just a part of the mob. As the name says, Team Innovation's aim was to craft events and shows that were grander and more unforgettable." However, not everybody takes the plunge and enters this realm. You will see people starting businesses in different realms, including food, digital media, and whatnot. But not many companies try to venture into the nightlife realm. Taking to which, Mohit Bijlani says, "People come to events and clubs to get rid of their boring lives. Moreover, it's not a cakewalk to organize events at great levels." Mohit Bijlani was very young when he embarked on his entrepreneurial journey. And he has already been awarded Iconic Young Entrepreneur by Times Icon Hospitality 2022, Goa.

Priyanka Chopra, Nick Jonas, and daughter Malti’s family vacation picture perfectly capture the essence of a chic, snowy getaway

Posted by on PP in

One of the cutest couples in Hollywood—and perhaps even Bollywood—is without a doubt Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. Every moment is beautiful while you're together when you work on two separate countries for the majority of your career. When on vacation, life becomes an arena for love, joy, and snow, and that's precisely how Priyanka and Nick spent their time in Aspen, Colorado. As soon as Priyanka Chopra and singer-husband Nick Jonas revealed their pregnancy, the internet erupted with excitement. The couple's relationship has been nothing short of a magical affair, from a lovely wedding to a fairy tale love story. Even while we like the power couple and their bond, we also have questions about how they would be fashionable parents. The duo has always had some amazing fashion moments, and vacations are a great opportunity to dress to impress. On Wednesday, Nick posted a family photo of Priyanka, Malti, and Nick on Instagram as part of their "Aspen photo dump." Additionally, there was a photo of Nick and Priyanka cuddling while resting on snow. Nick encircled Priyanka Chopra in the first of numerous images he shared, showing her holding their little daughter Malti. They had their backs to the camera. Nick sported black and white ski clothing, and Priyanka wore a ski suit with recognisable houndstooth pattern, while Malti was dressed for the cold in a white and pink winter ensemble. In another image of Priyanka and Nick cuddling while lying in the snow, they could not take their eyes off one another. Another image Nick posted showed Priyanka tossing a snowball at him while sporting a red beanie. Additionally, there was a single image of Priyanka pouting for the camera while posing on a bike. Furthermore, Nick posted a couple images of his pals skiing. Malti appeared in public for the first-time last month with her parents, Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. On January 30, the three members of the Jonas family attended the Jonas Brothers' Hollywood Walk of Fame star ceremony. The one-year-old sat on her mother's knee while her father and uncles, Kevin and Joe Jonas, collected their star.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Nick Jonas (@nickjonas) Also Read: Priyanka Chopra finally reveals Malti Marie Chopra Jonas’ face; see pictures

EXCLUSIVE: ‘Besharam Rang’ secret REVEALED! Composer duo Vishal and Sheykhar decode the making of Deepika Padukone starrer song, watch

Posted by on PP in

Shah Rukh Khan, John Abraham and Deepika Padukone’s Pathaan no longer need an introduction. Ever since the film hit the silver screen, it has managed to win hearts across the globe. Apart from high-octane action sequences and whistle-worthy cameo of Salman Khan, it's the tracks ‘Jhoome Jo Pathaan’ and ‘Besharam Rang,’ which have become the highlights. In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Hungama, the iconic composer duo Vishal and Sheykhar shared a bunch of anecdotes related to the making of Pathaan’s music album. While speaking about the making of ‘Besharam Rang’, Vishal and Sheykhar shared an “exclusive” detail of the song. The music-composers revealed that the song had a different intro and the title of the song was earlier its hook line. As the conversation progressed further, Sheykhar explained why they skip a typical Vishal-Sheykhar song because of “an old-school” thought process. Vishal and Sheykhar recalled, “The song had a different intro, and ‘Besharam Rang’ was its hook line, which has become the song now. We had planned a proper intro, then a cross-line, and after that, the hook line comes. Then we decided to skip everything and go with the main line,” while adding that they followed the pattern of classic melodies. Upon this, Sheykhar asserted, “This very beautiful old-school thought made us skip our standard Vishal-Sheykhar song as we write three-page long intros.” Meanwhile, Vishal jokingly added, “Which as far are as - kaato kaato.” They also went on to speak about the arrangement of the song. Sung by Shilpa Rao and choreographed by Vaibhavi Merchant, ‘Besharam Rang’ has garnered over 294M views on YouTube, so far.

Anil Kapoor reveals he had to pitch 24 to several platforms: 'Nobody took me seriously except for a few of them'

Posted by on PP in

Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor is gearing up for the web series The Night Manager's release on Disney+ Hotstar. The series stars Aditya Roy Kapur and Sobhita Dhulipala. Anil Kapoor says that he had to go to several platforms to pitch 24, as nobody was ready to take it. In an interview with the news agency PTI, Anil said, “Even when I was doing 24 internationally, everybody said you are a big screen, mainstream actor, how can you go to television. For me, it is always about the story and role. I wanted to experience it (TV), no matter what happens. I wanted to get that world back here as it was very exciting. The way I pitched 24 to all the platforms (here) was, 'I am going to give you 24 good films' but nobody took me seriously except for a few of them.” Anil Kapoor also said that the tricky part about this job is to wait for the right roles and avoid being stereotyped. “Before they can box you, you move to the next. You are ready to fail, ready to fall flat, and all of that. I knew there is a possibility that it might go wrong but I was taking that plunge. And at times, there is greed and you feel that there might not be any role that will be offered to you. But then you sit at home, relax with family, and then the right offer comes to you,” the actor added. Anil Kapoor will be seen in The Night Manager, which is the Hindi adaptation of John le Carre's novel of the same name. The novel was adapted into British series with Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie, Elizabeth Debicki and Olivia Colman. He will also be starring in Sandeep Reddy Vanga's Animal and Siddharth Anand's Fighter. ALSO READ: Throwback Thursday: Anil Kapoor recalls his 40 years in the industry through these photos

When I was told that we are doing Popcorn, like when the pre-production was happening, I suggested his name. I wanted someone in my production to be tantrum-less, hardworking, talented and comfortable with me. It was the best decision. The character needed someone to be good-looking and charming. He has done an amazing job. He is also a great dancer.” Avika went on to continue, “We share a great of screen chemistry. We are very good friends. If this works out for him and things go well, we will do more movies together. We love working together. We inspire each other. I inspire him with my punctuality and he inspires me with his love for learning new things. The effort he puts in learning new things is incredible.” Coming to Popcorn, it is being directed by Murali Naga Srinivas Gandham. Earlier Avika had spoken about the film saying, “Popcorn is a catchy name. There are a lot of meanings to it. It's great that people are actually asking me: why the name ‘Popcorn’ and I have told them that they will know it once they see the film. One and a half hours will pass by and you will not even know. I'm excited, and nervous and have mixed feelings and emotions. I'm hoping for a good response from the audience.” Also Read: Balika Vadhu actress Avika Gor opens up on what anxiety and mental issues have taught her about self-love

North Indian weddings frequently feature kaleeras. It's difficult to ignore the lengthy gold ornaments that brides wear. Over the years, their designs have changed, and today's brides can pick from a broad range of kaleera styles. Nearly every bride in the north of India anticipates wearing the long gold jewellery to match her bridal lehenga and the joy that goes along with it. Today, a bride can pick from a wide range of kaleera patterns, from substantial golden bunches to exquisite single threads. These decorations in the shape of an umbrella stand for the couple's everlasting love and happiness as newlyweds. The purpose is to send the bride well wishes and to make her know of the relatives and friends she would be leaving behind when she gets married.

However, the most interesting trend that we had noticed is brides donning custom-made kaleeras for their big day. There's something unique about celebrity nuptials. The influence of the lovely photos, gorgeous attire, and joyful faces last for some time. We continue to ogle the enormous yet gorgeous emerald-studded diamond necklace and the ethereal Manish Malhotra lehenga from the Sid-Kiara wedding. But the specifics reveal more.
