2013: Promising talents in Bollywood

By Hindustan Times

Every year, there’s a new crop of actors who we see on Hindi screen for the first time. Some make it big, some don’t. Here’s looking at a bunch who will make their Bollywood debuts this year, each hoping for a firm footing in the industry.

Sushant Singh Rajput
The TV actor is best known for his role as Manav Deshmukh in the soap, Pavitra Rishta. He was also seen in dance reality series Zara Nachke Dikha and Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa. His popularity on the small screen ensured that he bagged a couple of promising Bollywood projects in no time.

UPCOMING PROJECTS:
Kai Po Che: He is playing one of the leads in director Abhishek Kapoor’s film, which is based on author Chetan Bhagat’s novel, The 3 Mistakes Of My Life. Sushant plays an aspiring cricketer in this film on friendship.
nP.K.: Even before he could prove himself as an actor on the big screen, Sushant bagged a role in Rajkumar Hirani’s directorial venture alongside Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma.
To-be-announced YRF films: The production house has signed a three-film contract with him. The projects are yet to be announced.

USP:
Sushant is a skilled dancer. Being a known face on TV, the audience will connect with him instantly.

Dhanush
South actor Venkatesh Prabhu Kasthuri Raja, aka Dhanush, became a rage with the song ‘Kolaveri di’. The Tamil actor, playback singer, lyricist and producer has several successful films like Thiruda Thirudi (2003), Polladhavan (2007), Kutty (2010), Uthama Puthiran (2010) and 3 (2012) to his credit.

UPCOMING PROJECTS:
Raanjhnaa: He is making his Bollywood debut with this film, opposite Sonam Kapoor. The romantic film is being directed by Anand L Rai of Tanu Weds Manu fame.

USP:
His ‘Kolaveri di’ has already made him a popular figure among audiences across India. His Hindi film debut is sure to create a buzz too.

Kristina Akheeva
She is a Russian model-turned-actor, who will make her debut with the franchise Yamla Pagla Deewana.

UPCOMING PROJECTS:
Yamla Pagla Deewana 2: This is the sequel to the 2011 hit, where all three Deols — Dharmendra, Sunny and Bobby — come together for a quirky action-comedy.

USP:
She certainly has the body and the face for showbiz. Bollywood also loves
exotic-looking women. Plus, she debuts with a lead role.

Rhea Chakraborty
The MTV VJ-turned-actor started her career with the Telugu film Tuneega Tuneega (2012). She is now making her Bollywood debut in a Yash Raj Films movie.

UPCOMING PROJECTS:
Mere Dad Ki Maruti: It’s a comedy set against the backdrop of a loud Punjabi wedding in Chandigarh, and is directed by debutant Ashima Chibber.

USP:
The VJ who has appeared in in MTV shows like Fantastic Five alongside Ayushmann Khurrana is popular with youngsters.

Girish Taurani
He is making his debut in a Prabhudheva film. He has been paired with Shruti Haasan, daughter of south superstar Kamal Haasan.

UPCOMING PROJECTS:
Ramaiya Vastavaiya: The romantic film is the Hindi adaptation of Prabhudheva’s directorial debut and Telugu blockbuster, Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana (2005).

USP:
There’s always space for yet another good-looking young man in Bollywood. Plus, having Taurani as your surname (his father, Kumar Taurani, heads a leading music label) doesn’t hurt at all.

Ram Charan Teja
He is an established south actor and the son of Telugu superstar Chiranjeevi. He is making his Bollywood debut in the remake of one of Amitabh Bachchan’s biggest hits, Zanjeer.

UPCOMING PROJECTS:
Zanjeer: A remake of the 1973 hit, he plays a police officer. This iconic role played a huge part in establishing Bachchan’s image as the ‘angry young man’.

USP:
Being part of the Zanjeer remake itself is his USP. Not taking anything away from the actor, it is the comparisons with Big B that has created buzz around him.

Tamannaah Bhatia
Even though Tamannaah is from Mumbai, she is a big star down south. She will be seen in Sajid Khan’s remake of the 1983 hit, Himmatwala.

UPCOMING PROJECTS:
n Himmatwala: It’s a modern take on the Jeetendra-Sridevi starrer. Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah play the lead roles.

USP:
She’s hardly the new kid on the block, given her experience in Tamil and Telugu films. She started her career with a flop Hindi film, but it means that she has an idea of how things work in Bollywood.

Girish Taurani
He is making his debut in a Prabhudheva film. He has been paired with Shruti Haasan, daughter of south superstar Kamal Haasan.

UPCOMING PROJECTS:
Ramaiya Vastavaiya: The romantic film is the Hindi adaptation of Prabhudheva’s directorial debut and Telugu blockbuster, Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana (2005).

USP:
There’s always space for yet another good-looking young man in Bollywood. Plus, having Taurani as your surname (his father, Kumar Taurani, heads a leading music label) doesn’t hurt at all.

Small screen too small for Bollywood’s A-listers

amitabh kbc 200x150 With desi channels adapting international shows like “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” and “Got Talent”, fans in India are quite used to stars such as Amitabh Bachchan or Madhuri Dixit popping up on TV screens as hosts or judges. But will Bollywood biggies ever take up acting in fiction series seriously?

Hindi film stars have generally steered clear of the small screen. Quite unlike their Hollywood counterparts, who have taken to the small screen in a pretty big way and happily feature in sitcoms too.

Julia Roberts, who will be seen in TV series “The Normal Heart”, is the most recent case in point. Other popular Hollywood A-listers like Ashton Kutcher and Charlie Sheen were seen in the sitcom “Two-And-A-Half-Men”. And “Grey’s Anatomy” features Katherine Heigl.

But Indian TV screens have mostly been devoid of such participation from known cine-stars.

There have been some exceptions of course. In 1998, Om Puri and Naseeruddin Shah played the lead roles in the successful serials “Kakaji Kahin” and “Mirza Ghalib”, respectively, for Doordarshan.

Bollywood’s Dreamgirl Hema Malini did the successful dance-based show “Nupur” in the 1990s. But after that there was a lull.

In early 2000, Hema and Karisma Kapoor tried to revive the trend with “Kamini Damini” (2004) and “Karishma – The Miracles of Destiny” (2003), which also featured Arshad Warsi and Sanjay Suri, respectively. But their efforts failed to yield the desired results.

If the Karisma-starrer went off air after a few months, Hema’s show couldn’t replicate the success story of “Nupur”.

Superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who took a big leap from TV to films, raised hopes of a turnaround in that trend when he expressed a desire to return to his roots.

“I had a discussion with late Mukul Anandji and since then we have been thinking that all the big stars of Bollywood should come together and make a TV series.

“It will be interesting if Bollywood people would come together and make a 10-part or 12-part series, just like ‘Buniyaad’ and ‘Hum Log’… I am open to doing it if there is a good story to entertain the audience,” he told reporters recently.

Apart from Shah Rukh, actors who have made a transition from TV soaps to films include Irrfan, Vidya Balan and R. Madhavan.

Salman Khan feels that television is too much of hard work. “Reality shows are about one season, but when you do a serial you are stuck in it for 10 -15 years,” Salman told IANS.

Aruna Irani, who is known for her dance numbers and character roles in films and has also been quite active on the small screen, tries to analyse why Bollywood actors haven’t taken to fiction shows on TV.

“Silver screen is silver screen. TV serials are considered a step down as compared to films. People have always considered it less than a movie,” Aruna, who continues her association with TV through “Parichay-Nayee Zindagi Kay Sapno Ka”, told IANS.

Another hurdle is that money and fame are shortlived on TV, says film critic Vikas Mohan.

“There is more money and fame on silver screen. With television, fame is limited till the show is on air. Once the show is over, no one remembers the artists. So, (film) artists prefer to keep themselves connected only to the big screen,” he said.

Time constraint also stops stars from taking up soaps, adds Samir Soni, who has long balanced TV and movie roles.

“Actors in films don’t want to take that time off. They can do hosting, but for a daily soap you have to make a conscious commitment. In movies, the gestation period is so long… It may take a year to come,” he added.

If Samir did films like “Lajja”, “Fashion” and “I Hate Luv Stories”, he also featured in daily soaps like “Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi” and is currently seen in “Parichay-Nayee Zindagi Kay Sapno Ka”. – IANS

Imran Khan finds it scary to work with Pankaj Kapur

By Hindustan Times

Actor Imran Khan, who is sharing celluloid space with Pankaj Kapoor for the first time in Matru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola, says working with the veteran actor can be unnerving. "Pankaj-ji is a fantastic actor, but working with him is very scary," Imran said here Saturday during a promotional event for his film.

"As soon as the director says 'action', he explodes as a bomb and the actor who is standing in front of him has to be ready to take whatever he is going to do, because if you are not ready, then the whole scene may get spoilt. So, you have to be alert and have to be on your toes. It is scary," he added.

In "Matru...", Imran and Pankaj will be seen playing the characters Matru and Mandola, respectively. The film, releasing Jan 11, also features actress Anushka Sharma.

Many relate Imran with the romantic avatar he has displayed on screen through films like "Jaane Tu...Ya Jaane Na", "I Hate Luv Storys" and "Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu", but he says in real life, he isn't so at all.

"I am not romantic at all. I can't do this - buying gifts, giving roses and all that. I feel that if you are serious about a relationship, it is more than just that and all these things (gifting) is just for showing off," said Imran.

Post "Matru...", Imran will be seen in "Mumbai Talkies" and "Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again".

Bipasha Basu flies 35 guests to Goa for birthday party

By Hindustan Times

Bipasha Basu might have turned a year older today, but the actor insists that age is just a number for her. “And honestly, these numbers don’t matter to me much. I have always said that I would love to live till 100, but the journey has to be exciting,” says the 34-year-old who has gone all out for her birthday this year as she has flown 35 people (including family and friends) to Goa for the celebrations. “I always get excited about my birthday. It’s not just about that one day. I celebrate it throughout the month. It’s the most important day for anyone. I don’t understand when people say, ‘Birthdays are no big deal’. If birthdays are no big deal, then life is also not a big deal,” she says.

Although Bipasha refuses to reveal who she is partying with, we found out that her guest-list includes friends like designer Rocky S, fitness trainer Deanne Pandey and her cousins and sisters. However, she does accept that filmmaker-friend Vikram Bhatt was also invited. “But he isn’t really a Goa person,” she says, adding, “My friends keep saying I get as excited as a high-school kid on my birthdays. But I don’t mind that. It’s a compliment.”

Ask her what presents she’s expecting this year and she says jokingly, “I hope I get lots. But the best gift I have given myself is this small break (after launching her workout DVD and shooting for Aatma). At a time when industry is gearing up to get back to work, I am taking a break. But I’ll be back in 10 days.”

Now starring in a ‘creature’ presentation

Last year, they teamed up for Raaz 3. And now, filmmaker Vikram Bhatt and Bipasha Basu are coming together again for what is being touted as India’s first creature film. To be produced by T Series’ Bhushan Kumar, the film has been titled Creature!.

“It will be India’s first ever creature film that will be made on the lines of Predator and Jurassic Park. We will be releasing it in 3D,” says Vikram.

Bhushan adds, “We are happy to announce our next creative collaboration and couldn’t be more excited to be presenting it to Bipasha on her birthday.

The film goes on the floors in May and will be mounted on an international scale.”

Talking about the storyline, Bipasha says, “It will be a completely new experience for me. The film’s treatment is such that it will also test my fitness and strength. I am excited.”

The glittering hot trend in Bollywood

By Hindustan Times

Bollywood ladies are adding generous doses of bling to their wardrobe and stepping out for red carpet events, parties and private dinners in gilded glam. Thus, from blingy vintage-style drapes to chic western cuts, everything’s in vogue.

“Whether it is couture, prĂȘt or the redcarpet, shimmer works across the board. Bling chic is in,” says designer Gaurav Gupta, who thinks gold is going to be a favourite with the fashionable this season. And predictably, industry style-setters have not shied away from flashing some sparklers. “I feel some can carry off the look better than others — Kalki Koechlin, Kangna Ranaut, Anushka Sharma and Sonam Kapoor look great in gilded western cuts,” says designer Suneet Varma.

Street stylistas have taken a cue from the celeb brigade, and are picking up all things bright and shiny online and at flea markets, too. “People are going mad for glitter this season. It’s everywhere — blazers, shoes, skirts, dresses, just about anything,” says online fashion retailer Tanvi Malik. “Jhilmil, crystals, sab yahi maangte hain aaj kal,” says Sonu, a shopkeeper at Sarojini nagar.

HOW TO ACE THE LOOK
It’s easy to go over the top when you are wearing shimmer, so the only way to make it work is by balancing the look. Don’t pair gold with gaudy, gilded accessories. A simple box clutch or a sole statement bangle can do the trick.

Stars to descend on Sangam city

By Hindustan Times

After Hollywood star Catherine Zeta-Jones, now it’s the turn of Bollywood stars Amitabh Bachchan and star couple Akshay Kumar and Twinkle to plan a visit to Sangam city to take a holy dip during Kumbh.

Comedy king Rajpal Yadav has already reached Kumbh mela area on Monday evening to supervise the preparations for making 1.25 crore ‘Shivlingams’ at his guru Devprabhakar Shastri Daddaji’s camp in sector number 8.

Another Bollywood star couple, Ashutosh Rana and television actress Renuka Sahane, would also be arriving at their guru’s pandal to prepare the ‘shivlingams’, which would be immersed at Sangam during Kumbh.

According to sources, Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna would be arriving in the city on January 15, a day after shahi snan (one of the three auspicious bathing days during the 55-day religious event).

They would be staying at Kashi Viswanath Mandap, which is being prepared at sector number 13, in Arail area in Naini.

“Both the star couple would be taking part in yagyas and would participate in the worship of ‘Panchmukhi Shivling’ at the mandap,” revealed sources responsible for managing the mandap. In view of the mela administration’s strict regulation against entry of VVIPs in Kumbh mela area, both have been instructed to maintain secrecy.

Meanwhile, sources in Prayagwal Sabha have confirmed the arrival of the mega-star during the Kumbh. “Last time, he (Bachchan) had came with a priest from Varanasi but the rituals were performed by purohits of Prayagwal Sabha, so this time we have been asked to prepare for the same, “ said a purohit preferring anonymity.

However, another section of Prayagwal Sabha, led by Ajay Pande, has refuted the claim and said, “It’s a tradition that rituals are performed by president of the sabha and I have, till now, not received any news from his side.”

It may be recalled here that Hollywood star Catherine Zeta-Jones had said that she was planning to visit India to attend the Kumbh Mela with her husband Michael Douglas, and her children. She has reportedly said that she wanted to visit the Kumbh Mela for mental solace and
well-being.

Ranbir Kapoor hails singers, says they contribute a lot in actor's life

By Hindustan Times

Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor, who has been roped in to play the main lead in a biopic on legendary performer Kishore Kumar, feels that a singer must be given due credit as he plays a very important role in an actor's life. "Kishore Kumar has sung for my father so many times. While doing
'Bachna Ae Haseeno', I got an opportunity to sing a few lines of his (Kishore Kumar) song too. A singer contributes a lot in an actor's life and must be given credit for that," he told reporters Monday at a press conference here arranged for Colors Screen Awards.

Being a huge fan of the singer, Ranbir, 30, said: "Whenever we talk of Kishore Kumar, all we can say is that he used to sing from his heart."

Kishore Kumar died in 1987 at the of 58. He gave the Indian film industry evergreen hits like "Chalte chalte mere ye geet yaad rakhna", "O Hansini", "Aa chal ke tujhe", "Pyar manga tumhi se", "Pal pal dil ke paas", "Hawa ke saath saath", "Chhukar mere mann ka" and "Jahaan teri ye nazar hai".

The actor also revealed that the script of the film is not ready at the moment.

"It is a great opportunity for me to act in a biopic of Kishore Kumar on screen. The script is not ready at the moment and we are waiting for Anurag Basu to complete it. It is my duty as an actor that I do full justice to it," said Ranbir who proved his versatility with films like "Rockstar" and "Barfi".

Ranbir will not be singing in the film, but "I will try my best to look and act like him".

At the moment, the actor is busy with two of his upcoming films - "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" and "Besharam".

Bollywood stars hit out at Asaram Bapu’s controversial remark

By Hindustan Times

What a joke’, ’stupidity’, ‘sense offender’, ‘idiotic’. These are some of Bollywood’s reactions to godman Asaram Bapu’s remark that the Delhi gangrape victim was as guilty as her rapists.

“She should have called the culprits ‘brothers’ and begged before them to stop. Had she recited the
Saraswati mantra, she would not have boarded any bus after watching a movie with her boyfriend,” he said in an interview on Monday.

FarhanThe film industry took to microblogging site Twitter to vent its angst. “A rousing welcome to Asaram bapu into the Sense Offenders Directory. Any guesses who the next misogynist might be??” wrote filmmaker Farhan Akhtar.

“If u asked Mr Asaram about d cure for cancer he wud ask u to recite some mantra. what do v expect from people who live off d misery of people (sic),” tweeted filmmaker Sudhir Mishra.

Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt says, “These are the so-called holy people who say Indian cinema is the Gangotri of all evil. What a joke. Now the time is here for the nation to decide who’s the worst villain.”

The industry also slammed Asaram’s spokesperson Neelam Dubey, who defended him saying “the remarks were made at a religious discourse in the context of how one should invoke God’s name to avoid incidents like crimes against women.”

“Asaram Bapu Neelam Dubey can u pls give us a jadu ka mantra with which we can suffer the likes of you (sic),” tweeted actor-activist Shabana Azmi.

Young people on Twitter shared the same sentiment. “Am clasping my hands together and begging Asaram Bapu - ‘Brother. Please stop’,” wrote Putul Tiwari. “Spiritual (regressive) gurus like Asaram Bapu are what’s wrong with this country,” tweeted Lokesh Bahety.

The film deals with sexual harassment at the workplace. While Arjun plays the CEO of an advertising firm, Chitrangada is cast as a copywriter in the movie coming out Jan 18. The film is produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures.

"Inkaar is set in corporate India. The film, like its lead stars, is contemporary, chic, glamorous, hard-hitting and powerful. We are pleased to be associated with a brand like Siyaram's Mistair which reflects the same values and talks to the target audience of Inkaar," said Vikram Malhotra, chief operating officer of Viacom18 Motion Pictures, in a statement.

The entire range of Powerplay is exclusively available at select retail outlets of the brand.

"It (the partnership) gave us an opportunity to display our corporate collections by Mistair from the house of Siyaram Silk Mills for the new age fashion conscious youth who opts for stylish formal wear to create an impression at their workplace," said Poddar in a statement.
