Shah Rukh Khan becomes 1st Indian ambassador for Interpol ambassador

Lyon (France): Internationally-renowned Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan has been roped in as an ambassador for Interpol’s “Turn Back Crime” campaign to promote awareness on how everyone can play a role in preventing crime.

Shah Rukh, said to be the first Indian to be made an ambassador for the global campaign, is lending his voice to help spread the message that all of society benefits when citizens respect law and fight crime.

“It’s a very special honour to be a part of Interpol’s ‘Turn Back Crime’ campaign as an ambassador,” said Shah Rukh. Continue reading

John to play dreaded gangster; Anil Kapoor to play Bal Thackeray in Sanjay Gupta’s next?


Priya Gupta (BOMBAY TIMES; February 13, 2014)

Sanjay Gupta’s films are about gangsters, real life incidents and style. We have now learnt that Sanjay is ready to shoot his next film titled Mumbai Saga, which again is based on a real-life gangster of the 80s and the 90s, who changed the skyline of Mumbai. This gangster, being played by John Abraham, will be shown from the age of 22, where he was a vegetable vendor, to the age of 45, when he became a narco smuggler and the ganglord of Mumbai, who ruled the businesses of drugs, arms and real estate. He was responsible for breaking the strong nexus between the mills and the politicians at that time. He, in effect, became the broker for builders and was responsible for buildings being built in place of mills. But he did something so terrible that he had to get his face changed without which he would have been caught. He had turned gangster for the sake of his brother, who he wanted should become a chemical engineer from London. While his brother did become that, ironically, he finally became a gangster himself.

Great actors Anil Kapoor and Manoj Bajpayee return in this Sanjay Gupta film. Interestingly, Anil will be seen playing the leader of the ruling political party then, who was no less than the tiger of Mumbai’s jungle. It’s a no-brainer to guess who that could be. Continue reading

How Prime Focus played a huge part in the success of Gravity


Ankur Pathak (MUMBAI MIRROR; February 12, 2014)

Alfonso Cuaron’s Sandra Bullock-George Clooney starrer space drama Gravity, which has recieved 10 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, was partly shot in 3D, but chunks of it was converted to the format from 2D by Prime Focus India.

To make the space spectacle look as astounding as it does, about 400 technicians from the Indian branch of Prime Focus, a company that specialises in rendering visual effects, animation and 3D-conversion, worked in tandem with teams from London and Los Angeles.

Before it came on board, Cuaron asked the team here to do test-runs, and impressed by the results, Prime Focus was aboard the space mission. It helped that the VFX firm enjoyed tremendous goodwill in LA circles, having worked on the visuals of Avatar and on the 3D conversion of Clash of the Titans in a record-time of eight weeks.

Enjoyed playing the role of Defence Intelligence Agent in Holiday-Akshay Kumar


Hiren Kotwani (BOMBAY TIMES; February 12, 2014)

A number of factors make Holiday — A Soldier Is Never Off Duty exciting. It’s a collaboration between Akshay Kumar and Vipul A Shah, who have given hits like Aankhen, Waqt — The Race Against Time, Namastey London and Singh Is Kinng. Then, it’s helmed by A R Murugadoss, who pioneered the 100-crore club with his first Hindi film, Ghajini. Now, the trade is curious to see his second outing. Not to forget the pairing of Akshay and Sonakshi, who have given a success like Rowdy Rathore.

All eyes are on Holiday… because it has an engaging story revolving around an army captain — played by Akshay — some high-end action, romance and a good soundtrack by Pritam.

Vipul, who is the producer of the film, says, “In every person’s life, some special films happen. I’m lucky that I got so many special films with Akshay in the last 10 years. There are huge expectations from the team. We’re looking forward to it ourselves.” For now, they are awaiting the reactions to the trailer, which goes online today at 2.30 pm. Continue reading

Hrithik Roshan pushes for Oct 2 deadline for Bang Bang?


Mehul S Thakkar (MUMBAI MIRROR; February 12, 2014)

By walking out of Shuddhi, Hrithik Roshan has sparked off speculations that not only is he not at his prime physically, but has also hit an emotional low following his separation from wife Sussanne. But that’s far from the truth.

According to a source close to the Bang Bang unit, which has just wrapped up a shoot in Shimla, when Hrithik joined them last week, he was extremely focussed and energetic. “There are no signs of fatigue, he is untiring on the sets, and after the delay brought on by his accident on the sets and subsequent surgery, he is determined to keep the film’s October 2 date with the theatres. That’s the reason he has decided not to get distracted by other film, not even listen to any scripts, till he has wrapped up Bang Bang,” said source.

The source revealed that when in Shimla, the actor used to hit the gym every morning with his trainer who is travelling with him. “After the shoot, he returned to the gym again for an hour. He didn’t skip his workout even once. He’s even flown down his cook from Mumbai so he can maintain a customised diet,” added the source. Continue reading

Farhan, Ranveer, Priyanka, Anushka to shoot for Zoya Akhtar’s film on a cruise in May-June?


Mehul S Thakkar (MUMBAI MIRROR; February 11, 2014)

Zoya Akhtar’s next film, starring, Farhan Akhtar, Ranveer Singh, Anushka Shrama and Priyanka Chopra, has been kept strictly under wraps because the filmmaker likes to do her work quietly and let her films do the talking. But Mirror has learnt that the director has made trips to South Africa and Italy to check out and explore different kinds of cruises.

According to a source, “The first schedule will be shot abroad a cruise liner with the lead star cast. The dates of the actors are being worked out and most likely the shoot will be in May-June. Major portions of the film will be shot on the ship and it is an important part of the film.”

Ritesh Sidhwani, the head honcho of Excel Entertainment, has made a trip to Brazil to check out options as well. According to the source “Ritesh spent the last week in Brazil, they won’t settle for something that doesn’t match up to the magnitude of the project.” When contacted, Sidhwani confirmed the story and said, “Yes, we will be filming on a cruise liner but have not locked the ship or even the country. We will take the decision next week.” Continue reading

Holiday trailer not being ready due to Pritam was a joke, confirms Vipul Shah


Mehul S Thakkar (MUMBAI MIRROR; February 11, 2014)

At a recent award function, producer Vipul Shah jokingly said on stage that couldn’t unveil the trailer of his upcoming Akshay Kumar starrer, Holiday, as the music is not ready. Now this was far from truth as Pritam Chakraborty had already delivered the songs to Vipul. This wisecrack resulted in fans riling against the composer on a social networking site for his late latif ways.

According to a source, when Pritam woke up to these comments, he took a screenshot and texted it to Vipul. The producer admitted to Mirror that Pritam was upset because it was being misconstrued as him unprofessionalism. “I explained to him that it was just a joke but he groused that people didn’t understand such jokes and I should have been more careful,” says Vipul.

Vipul said that the controversy was unnecessary and blown out of proportion. “I shouldn’t have said what I did. I have already clarified with Pritam over the phone. He is not upset with me and there is no bad blood between us.” Continue reading

Anushka Sharma flies down to New Zealand to be with Virat Kohli?

Anushka Sharma flanked by fans in New Zealand
Mehul S Thakkar (MID-DAY; February 7, 2014)

Recently on Karan Johar’s TV talk show, Koffee With Karan Seaon 4, Anushka Sharma admitted that Virat Kohli is her favourite cricketer. But when Anurag Kashyap good-naturedly ribbed her asking Karan, “Don’t you think Virat and she look good together”, she blushed and protested, “I’m feeling naked right now.”

The actress who has vehemently denied being in a relationship with the cricketer, recently flew down to New Zealand to spend some quality time with her ‘good friend’, before leaving for Sri Lanka to film Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet mid-February.

After the fifth one-day international in Wellington which India lost, surrendering the ODI series to New Zealand, the squad left for Whangarei for a practice match. Skipper MS Dhoni and Virat reportedly gave this match a miss and went to Auckland instead where the first of the Test matches began yesterday. Anushka joined them there and the couple spent a few quiet days together, strolling hand-in-hand through the picturesque streets where they were clicked and their love story blown open.

Hrithik Roshan shoots with 2 body doubles for rooftop chase scene in Shimla


Hiren Kotwani (BOMBAY TIMES; February 7, 2014)

For his upcoming action thriller, Hrithik Roshan will have two body doubles help him pull off his stunts designed and choreographed by Andy Armstrong (The Amazing Spider-Man 2). One of them, Mansoor, regularly doubles up for the superstar. The other is a stunts specialist from Los Angeles. Roshan, who underwent brain surgery last July, is currently filming an extensive and dangerous rooftop chase sequence in a heavily populated area of Shimla.

Says a source, “Unlike rooftops in cities like Delhi, those in Shimla are sloped with the steep valley on one side. While Hrithik will do all the close-up scenes, the body doubles will be used for wide angle and long shots.”

When we spoke to our source on Thursday afternoon, the superstar was readying for his shot on the tin roof, about 40 feet off the ground, even though it had started snowing. The team is scheduled to wrap the rooftop chase this weekend and then head to Delhi for 12 days, to film a car-chase sequence. Continue reading
