Bollywood’s love-hate relationship with Bal Thackeray

Indo-Asian News Service | Sunday, November 18, 2012 (Mumbai)

With some, he shared an endearing relationship, and with some, one of love-and-hate.

Bal Thackeray: Bollywood’s friend, philosopher and guide

Mumbai: There were reasons why Bollywood celebrities queued up to call on Bal Thackeray when the Shiv Sena supremo lay in a critical condition before he breathed his last Saturday. He was always with them, for them in their times of need.

With some, he shared an endearing relationship, and with some, one of love-and-hate.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who visited Thackeray Wednesday, recently recalled how inspiring and motivational Thackeray was for him when the actor was recovering in hospital after his near fatal accident on the sets of 1983 film ‘Coolie’.

An Open Letter To Mr Uddhav Thackeray

Dear Mr Uddhav Thackeray,

Firstly and very honestly, it’s really very unfortunate to know about the demise of your father, Mr Balasaheb Thackeray. His contribution has been immense in shaping Maharashtra’s history and also in shaping the lives of Maharashtrians. His legacy will live on for sure. May his soul rest in peace.

At the same time, I would like to bring to your notice the fear mania that gripped the city after news came out that your father has left for heavenly abode. People ran out of their offices and workplaces to reach home. Shops downed their shutters immediately. This is entirely a personal choice and I would not like to comment on it. But there are certain shopkeepers who preferred to keep their shops open. Also, chemists and milk shops rightfully chose not to follow the herd. Certain hooligans, according to reports, compelled them to shut shop as well. Some even pelted stones at certain stores. Buses and trains were stopped, which were full of scared people hoping to reach their homes as fast as they can. The goons toured the city in groups and compelled people to mourn for the demise of Mr Thackeray. Diwali celebration is still on and many homes were lit with Diwali lights and lanterns. Such people were ordered, not requested, to shut off the lights or else…

This is a wrong time to talk about these things with you as you have suffered arguably the biggest loss of your life. But do you really feel this is justified? People are in their homes and malls and shops are closed not necessarily by respect, but because of fear. After all, who desires that a mob destroys their shop? And do you think this is the correct way? Respect is earned and your father did that and the evidence is the lakhs of people who have turned up at Matoshree and at Shivaji Park. But respect is not forced and the Sena hooligans are trying to do that by forcing the whole city to mourn, even if they don’t want to, for entirely personal reasons. Most importantly, is it fair for to do all this in the name of your father, who would have never done something like this ever in his lifetime? Isn’t that shameful on the part of Sena workers?

I know there’s little you can do right now and I am not asking for any immediate move from you. My only request is – make sure all the Sena workers who did mischief on the roads in the name of your father be told to surrender to the cops and that they get strictest punishments. At the same time, if possible, on behalf of these troublemakers, apologize to the Mumbaikars for the inconvenience caused to them. Believe me, it would go a long way in winning the trust of Mumbaikars and will ultimately benefit Shiv Sena. I hope if this message ever reaches to you, it’s taken in the right spirit.

Akshay Kumar & Parineeti Chopra confirmed for Thuppakki Remake

A. R. Murgadoss of Ghajini fame with Aamir Khan & Asin has confirmed Akshay & Parineeti for his next Bollywood directorial venture.

“My next film is the Hindi remake of Thuppakki with Akshay Kumar
and Parineeti Chopra for producer Vipul Shah, which should start rolling
by December” said A. R. Murgadoss.

A complete action entertainer, the story of ‘Thuppakki’ is about an
Army captain and the film is set against the backdrop of Mumbai. Thuppakki featuring Vijay & Kajal Aggarwal in the lead roles opened to
positive reviews from both the critics and audiences. Thuppakki was
also a Diwali release and released same day as Bollywood films Jab Tak
Hai Jaan & Son of Sardaar.

Aamir’s Frenemy No 1 ( )

Reema Kagti, the 40-year-old director of Aamir Khan’s upcoming Talaash, is a picture of calm when confronted with questions of her so-called ‘difficult’ working relationship with the actor. Tabloids have it that Khan, who has been accused in the past of ‘interference’ and ‘ghost direction’, squared off with her routinely through the 90 days of filming. Kagti, a strikingly skinny lady who sports a close-crop, says right off the bat that there were no ‘creative differences’. And certainly no fiery ‘showdowns’.
“Not everything you hear about Aamir is true,” she says, obliquely referring to ‘rumours’ that much of the film had to be re-shot on his insistence, and that, according to one Mumbai Mirror report, he ‘sat for the edit of the trailer and saw to it that his vision for Talaash was retained.’
On the contrary, Khan is the sort of actor who “goes out of his way to put you at ease”. Impressed by his dedication, she says, “He doesn’t behave like a star. He is very low maintenance and hangs out on the sets, doing his own thing. He is 100 per cent there. Maybe his involvement gets misconstrued as interference.” She adds that it is largely a myth that stars throw their weight around. “Aamir is the most chilled-out actor any director can ask for. There were times when we needed him just for 45 minutes in the entire day and my [assistant directors] would schedule his shot at 3 am. But he never complained. Every time we needed him at such odd hours, he was there. It only proves his enthusiasm for his character and for his film,” says Kagti, who started off assisting Kaizad Gustad on his 1998 indie film Bombay Boys.
A crime thriller that also has Kareena Kapoor, Rani Mukerji and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Talaash has been a subject of much media speculation since it was announced. To begin with, the role was apparently first offered to Shah Rukh Khan. When Aamir was posed this question at Talaash’s music launch event, he laughed it off: “I didn’t know about it. Even for my other films, I have no idea who they are offered to first before they come to me. But the next time someone offers me a film, I will include this question.”
The director is disturbed by the culture of gossip and hearsay that she feels drives India’s film press. “Why should everything be about gossip—and about who you went to before a particular actor said ‘yes’ to your script? How does it matter?”
Coming to Aamir, nothing has changed in their personal relationship since she first came to know him during Lagaan and Dil Chahta Hai, on which she was an assistant director. It was the kind of relationship that any AD would share with a star. “Aamir himself was an AD before he became an actor. So, he understands the process of filmmaking better than most actors. As for my equation with him, well, let’s put it this way; when you get to know a star when you are a second AD, the relationship is such that you became frenemies. Not exactly a friend, or an enemy, but something in the middle. During Talaash, I found it easy to slip into the role of a director, but otherwise with Aamir, it has always been like it was during the Lagaan and Dil Chahta Hai days. I am his frenemy No. 1,” she chuckles.  
Talaash, in which Khan plays a cop pursuing a mysterious case, is Kagti’s second film after Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd., an ensemble comedy about half a dozen honeymooning couples travelling in a bus.
Unlike Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd., Talaash’s treatment is realistic. It called for a great deal of legwork and research. To get the mise-en-scène right, they sought the help of Amitabh Gupta, a top cop of Mumbai. “We wanted to get Aamir’s wardrobe right, his lifestyle and his work schedule had to be drawn up. Mr Gupta was very helpful. He let different people come to him for all sorts of small things—like, say, the production designer who had to survey the police station.” Given his perfectionist reputation, Khan stayed in character ‘look’ for the entire duration of the filming.
Refusing to draw any comparison with Sarfarosh, the much-acclaimed 1999 film in which Khan played an upright ACP battling the challenges of terrorism, she says: “The only similarity is the presence of Aamir and that he is a cop. I don’t know about Sarfarosh, but there is a strong emotional hook to Talaash. There are things he has to solve beyond the case, the deep anguish that he is going through needs closure. It’s clearly a very different premise.”
The cast and crew, when in no mood to work, indulged in a bit of fun. “On the whole, we had a whale of a time,” she says.“We had this cricket match once. Captain Aamir boasted to us that he hadn’t lost a match in 25 years, which we got to know later was a huge lie. Of course, we beat his team. But he sought consolation in the fact that he scored the highest runs.”
Originally from Borhapjan, Assam, Kagti (a three-times FTII reject) co-wrote Talaash with her best friend, Zoya Akhtar, about eight years ago. “We had this one-line idea and we started building it up from that point.” She pitched the idea to Zoya’s brother Farhan Akhtar, who immediately got hooked and decided to produce it.
With Zoya, it is a relationship of mutual admiration and respect. Usually, the Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara director is her bouncing board. “The minute I get an idea, Zoya is excited to hear it out,” she says, and if by chance she runs into Farhan that day, “He will be all ears” too. As depicted in their movies, there is evidently a lot of bonding among people who work with the Akhtars.
“We are friends first.  There is a lot of mutual support and I would say we have a common vision for cinema.”
But it is with Zoya that she gets along exceptionally well. She met her on Bombay Boys. With their somewhat similar nature and habits, they struck an instant friendship. “What was happening was that both of us were being sent for these lock ups during Bombay Boys,” she recalls.“It was not the glamorous filmmaking job that we had imagined. We were simply given a walkie-talkie and sent 10 or 15 minutes away, where we had for company a bunch of construction workers who would be hammering away at something. And when the shot was going on, we would get a message on the walkie-talkie to hush them up. Then, you go and beg everybody to be quiet. After a couple of hours the workers would get upset and they wouldn’t even listen. And every time we complained, we would be hushed down by a senior. If we were very angry, we would be quietened down with fake compliments, ‘Oh you are so good at your job.’”
She adds, “Because we kept getting thrown into similar situations, which were frustrating to say the least, for Zoya and me that became our common bond. Also, we liked the same things, we have a similar sensibility. We have been friends for 20 years now.”
She counts Anurag Kashyap, Farhan Akhtar and Dibakar Banerjee as her inspiration, but is quick to point out that Zoya is the one to watch out for. “Luck by Chance may not have been a commercial success, but I still think Zoya made the best first film among all of us. Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara was an excellent follow-up. She is going very strong.”

Film with Salman not going to happen, says Shah Rukh

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan says his longstanding “disagreements” with Salman Khan will not come to an end courtesy a film, a filmmaker or an actress. And neither would it be on a public platform.

The two Bollywood icons, who did films like “Karan Arjun” and “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” together, had a major fight in 2008 at Salman’s then girlfriend, Katrina Kaif’s birthday bash.

Even as Katrina hopes to produce a movie featuring Shah Rukh and Salman, SRK says it’s not going to happen – not at anyone’s behest.

“My thing is that we had a little bit of personal issue. This is not the first time. It was four years ago and it had been before. We (Salman) have been very close for 20 years and even more. From the time I came, I respect his family and the fact that they gave me so much of love. I can never be disrespectful about that. Having said that, we have grown together.” Continue reading

Weekly Thread – International BO last weekend – Nov 09-11 2012

North America:

As expected “Skyfall” opened with a bang and recorded the biggest opening for a Bond movie even if ticket price inflation is considered. The movie opened at Thursday midnight with an estimated $2.2 million, and pulled in $88.36 million over the weekend for a total opening of $90.56 million.

Little is needed to talk abt the film as almost everyone is aware of it, except that critics are going ga-ga over it (as evident from 91% tomatometer score), western people are loving it (evident from box office record breakings), but reviews from desi people are quite opposite. A couple of feedbacks from NG and some from my real-life friends are not positive at all. My question to the ones who disliked it, if you have seen “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” please give your feedback abt that movie and compare it with Skyfall.

There is no new movie in the rest of the top five spots. “Wreck-It-Ralph” held up beautifully adding $33.01 million over the weekend for a total of $93.65 million after ten days of release. “Flight” captured the third spot adding $14.79 million over the weekend for a total of $47.46 million after 10 days.


Release Date: 9 November 2012 (USA) Continue reading
