First On Net: Akshay Kumar’s Exclusive Interview For Filmfare By Raghuvendra Singh | January 2013


I’m b bit wary when I meet up with Akshay Kumar on the sets of BOSS. It’s reportedly a remake of 2010 Malayalam hit POKKIRI RAJA. The original starred Mammootty and considering Mammootty’s formidable reputation, I wonder how Akshay would get into the skin of a Mammootty flick. But an action film is an action film in any language and I’m sure Akshay is heads and shoulders above Mammootty as far as action is concerned. There is a fun track blaring in the background as Akshay goes about beating up goons in his Chin tat a rumbustious style. Director Anthony D’souza (of Blue fame) sets up the next action shot and Akshay takes time off to shoot some breeze with poor moi who’s been willing in the sun all this while. We saunter over to his boy to bring some jiggery. He offers me some as well, ”Gur khao,sehat bano (Eat jiggery to remain fit).” A health fiend, the actor prefers nibbling on nutrients like cashews, almonds, apples and jiggery during breaks than the fried variety.”I snack every three hours. This is one of my fitness secrets,” he confides.


I give him the choice of nibbling over my questions as well and he gives his go ahead. He’s known to go mushy over his daughter Nitara (born on September 25) whom he has named Nitara Khanna Bhatia in loving memory of his exalted father-in-law, Rajesh Khanna. He beams at the mention of Nitara. I want to know whom she resembles, Twinkle or him but he shrugs that off saying she’s too young for such comparisons. A new baby usually alters the parents’ schedule, but Akshay’s routine is unaffected. “I’ve always worked only for eight hours a day. I sleep for eight hours and spend the rest of the day at home. I spend a lot of time with Nitara.” Continue reading

I feel more responsible today-Salman Khan

Ahead of his birthday tomorrow, Bollywood star Salman Khan talks about being the actor with the ‘blockbuster touch’

Aakanksha Naval-Shetye (DNA; December 26, 2012)


Everything you touch seems to turn to gold at the box-office, including your latest Dabangg 2. Do you feel like the ‘man with the Midas touch’?
Arre baap re! Midas didn’t have a happy ending, did he? (feigns a worried expression). I wish what you are saying was true, then I wouldn’t have to worry about film scripts, direction, acting (laughs). But I think the genre has worked for me. Besides the director, cameraman, spotboys are as much a hero in the making of a film. I am just fortunate that my fans have always been there for me.

What do you think makes you such a hit with them?
The audience likes to see me in action or in love, so they like to see Salman Khan be the Tiger or Chulbul Pandey. They all have a little bit of these characters in them too. All I do is put it out on screen and they like it. That is why they like a Prem or Radhey too.

But do you have more of Prem in you or Chulbul?
It is easier to be Chulbul in real life than be a Prem. It is very difficult to keep everyone happy. Doing the right thing is one thing, but no matter what you do, you can never please everyone. It’s not easy being the nice guy always, no matter what gets thrown your way. As for me, I think I too have a little bit of all in me, but I am not them. I am Salman Khan.

Do you think it ever hampers your relationships… keeping your onscreen persona separate from the real you?
No. The people I share a relationship with know exactly who I am. They treat me like Salman Khan, not Radhey or Pandey. People who are close to me are the ones who keep it real for me, they know that’s the only way I know to be — real.

You are turning a year older tomorrow. Do you think about competition from the younger lot?
Competition has always been there, older lot, younger lot. But I always wish all do well. Film chalti hai toh sab ka achhcha hota hai. I think people accept my screen age, that’s what matters to them. I know I am not a youngster and doing action is not easy too. But till I can, I will really kick it!

Is there anything you miss at this age?
Jitna mila hai bahot mila hai. And I am just thankful for a family and fans who’ve given me strength to not give up. Somethings I have accepted. I can’t fight them, so I have just learnt to take what comes.

Next year you are completing 25 years in the industry?
And more than the money, it’s the love I have gained which makes it special. Hits come and go with Friday. I am lucky that I have had the love of my fans no matter how many Fridays have come and gone in my life.

Apart from the action, you seem to have reinvented the dancer in you…
I am no dancer, but I love doing what I do. Some like it, some feel I am stiff, but I enjoy it. And mostly the audience enjoys it too.

How much do tags like Rs 100-crore hero and money-spinner mean to you?
I do feel responsible, like I know how well Dabangg was received. Both Arbaaz and I knew that Dabangg 2 had to be a step ahead, not only in terms of money making. I am happy with the producers even just recovering money and everyone being associated with the film having something to be proud about. But in terms of taking the character forward, I feel I owe it to my audience. Tags… I take them to heart, because fans give it to you with love, but I don’t let them get to me.


Ajay spreads ‘save the tiger’ message in Himmatwala

BOMBAY TIMES (December 28, 2012)


It is learnt that Ajay Devgn and Sajid Khan, who’re working on of Himmatwala, have incorporated the Save the Tiger campaign in their film. The movie, set in the early 1980s, features a sequence in which Ajay grapples with a huge tiger — that has escaped free — before getting it back into its cage. And after ensuring the wild cat is locked in and the people around are safe, his character is believed to tell the tiger to not get out again. “Otherwise, I’ll have to fight with you to put you back in again. And then, people will be fighting to save the tiger,” Ajay’s character is reported to be saying to the tiger. Interestingly, the sequence was shot in Mauritius last month. Continue reading

We were offered to ghost direct films – Abbas-Mustan

Priya Gupta (BOMBAY TIMES; December 28, 2012)


For decades, Hindi cinema has expressed the idea of love as do jism aur ek jaan. This idea, though it’s filial, not romantic love, finds form in the partnership of brothers Abbas-Mustan. The directors of hits like Baazigar, Baadshah, Khiladi and Race say they have not spent a single day apart in 54 years. They share a common cellphone, and as we discovered during the course of this interview, often finish one another’s sentences. Presenting Bollywood’s most unusual jodi. Continue reading

Check out Ayushmann assisting Shoojit for Madras Cafe

Madras Cafe

Ayushmann Khurrana had to fly down to Kochi to work as Shoojit Sircar’s AD for 10 days. Know why…

Asira Tarannum (MID-DAY; December 27, 2012)


No one knows it better than John Abraham and Shoojit Sircar to hold a man to his words. So much so that more than a year after Ayushmann Khurrana offered to double up as an AD for them, the two called forth for his services on the sets of their upcoming film, Madras Cafe. Continue reading
