Rana Daggubati Reveals Secrets On Famously Filmfare – Telugu

SKJ News Bureau

Published

on

The first thing Rana learned from Prabhas

“The first thing I learned from Prabhas is patience. He has an unacheiveable amount of patience. Prabhas was the pillar of Baahubali. And that is unquestionable. He did not question anything to the director. He was the biggest star during that time as well. He was doing this film after ‘Mirchi’ and other big hits. Can you imagine how many films he could have done in those five years? How much could he earn during that time? He never questioned that for a second. His integrtity, dedication and patience is something that I love about him”

Would you have imagined Rana failing anything?

“I failed in my tenth grade”

Rana Daggubati changed his marks in his report card

“Not just one time, I did that for 2, 3 years. There was one small time in my life where I shifted from Madras to Hyderabad. There you have your guardian, I have my grandfather. And my grandfather never used to care anything. And whenever I used to get bad marks, he used to get it done with. And he used to like that I learned anything. He used to like that I am reading a lot. For alternative skills, he used to give importance for me, and it is still continuing”

The things Rana can’t do!

“I can’t dance. I can’t say punch dialogues. I don’t have punch to punch humour. So, in acting there are a bunch of things that I can’t do”

Rana Dagubatti grew up on a film set!

“At that time, there was no place to hang out. I used to hang out at my school. I studied in HPS, Begumpet. That school was spread across 200 acres of land. More than the classroom, we used to be outside. So, it was a good experience. I used to hang out in a house which was built for shooting films. We lived in such a house. So, we lived on the first floor and films were shot on the ground floor. I used to eat my breakfast at the set before going to school every day. So, I actually lived in a film set.

Rana is an emotional person

“It is just momentary. It’s a big problem with actors. Emotions are very overrated by nature itself. Because it is only momentary. After a certain moment, it’s done. Something else would come up. I cry a lot when I watch films. We connect with the film, unknowingly and we feel like crying. I don’t often cry in real life, but in films, it’s different.”

Ajay Devgan Goes From 17th Century to 1950s-60s

Subhash K . Jha

Published

on

Ajay Devgan is busy wrapping up his bio-pic on Maratha warrior Tanaji Malusare. Thereafter he goes straight into another bio-pic, on Syed Abdul Rahim who is known as the founding-father of football in India.

Devgan has been prepping for the Syed Abdul Rahim bio-pic even while completing his shooting as the 17th century Maratha warrior.

“In the Rahim bio-pic Ajay has to portray the character from 1952 to 1962. It’s a completely different era , mindspace and body language and Ajay Devgan has been quietly researching on Syed Abdul Rahim and honing his skills in the game of football although Ajay doesn’t have to play much football in the film. He is a coach not a football player,” says a source.

Interestingly Amitabh Bachchan too plays a real-life football coach in his next release Jhund. So are we looking at a prolonged phase of a national sport other than cricket getting its due in Indian cinema?

Sidharth Malhotra-Tara Surtaria Rumours A Publicity Stunt, Say Sources

SKJ News Bureau

Published

on

A question being asked at parties and private conversations in Bollywood is, why is Siddharth Mahotra being linked with a new girl practically every month ever since he parted ways with Alia Bhatt?

The latest link-up is with newcomer Tara Surtaria who makes her debut in Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year. The stunning newcomer has also completed another feature film Marjawan with Siddharth Malhotra in the lead.

And that’s how the rumour of their relationship started.

A source close to the development clarifies, “They are working together and hence seen together in public places. This is the publicity machinery at work again. How many women would Siddharth be linked with? Wasn’t he seeing Kiara Advani?”

One of Tara’s co-stars from Student Of The Year says she is currently focused on her work. “I don’t think she is in a relationship with anyone,” says the costar.

Newsbreak: Vijay Devarakonda In Hospital

This  Holi is  not so exciting and colourful for Telugu cinema’s fastest-rising star Vijay Devarkonda.

The  star who is currently immersed in  the  completion  of  his April release Dear Comrade  ,  checked  into a leading hospital  of  Hyderabad on Wednesday with high fever.

Says a  source  close to Vijay, “But it’s nothing  to worry  about. It’s just exhaustion.And  normally  one would  just have  to rest it out. But Vijay can’t afford a break right now. So he checked into the  hospital  for some swift and remedy  and relief to resume shooting  as soon as  possible.”

Says Vijay with  a chuckle, “What a way to celebrate Holi!I felt very weak and checked into hospital for treatment to recover quickly. I was shooting till 6  am on Wednesday morning and was down with fever. So rather than  waste time recovering I  made  a trip to the hospital.”

Vijay isn’t the  Indian  star  to  let his health suffer  because  of  overwork. Some  years ago Priyanka Chopra who  was  shooting round-the-clock had  to be hospitalized  for dehydration.

Amit Sharma , The Badhaai Ho Director Finally Speaks Up On The Writers’ Row

Subhash K . Jha

Published

on

Jyoti Kapoor claims she deserves credit for writing the script of Badhaai Ho?

Badhaai Ho! , the film that came out in October 2018, was written by Akshat and Shantanu, Ms. Jyoti Kapor had nothing to do with the story or the script that transcribed to the motion picture that was loved by the audiences.

Why haven’t you clarified the issue so far?

Whats appalling is that nobody has approached me aksing for clarifications . A director would be aware who wrote the film he is directing. I havent met Ms. Jyoti till date nor have I ever read the script of Hum do Humare Char which she claims has resemblance to Badhaai Ho. Jyoti had the same one-line idea which i was unaware of till I got to know the same from my producers Junglee pictures.

Now that Ms Kapoor has made her claims over the writing what according to you is the solution to the deadlock?

I have known Akshat and Shantanu since their froming years, they have been true to the art and dilligent with their work but never have they been cheats. Filmfare is one of the biggest platforms that gives recongnition to artists from the Indian Film Industry and makes them a household name. If Ms. Jyoti has truly contributed to the script of Badhaai ho, i request her to come out in the open with her script, and end this confusion once and for all.

Tell me a bit about the genesis of the Badhaai Ho script?

Akshat one of the writers on Badhaai Ho!, came up with this idea way back in 2012, for an ad campaign. He narrated the idea to me and we started work on the same. This was in 2015. Soon after when Priti got to know i was working on a similar idea, we met and she heard our story, she loved it so much that she said we should continue developing it. Akshat and Shantanu started developing the story which became Badhaai Ho!

So are you saying Jyoti Kapoor had nothing whatsoever to do with their script of Badhaai Ho?

I am not insinuating anything here neither am I leaving anything for the grey region, or for odd assumptions. The story was developed by only Akshat and Shantanu keeping Junglee in the loop. Ms. Jyoti nor her version of the story were ever responsible for what became Badhaai Ho!.

Our producer Priti Shahane spoke to Akshat and Shantanu and in good faith, they agreed upon giving Ms. Jyoti Kapoor the credit, for “Story for Junglee pictures”, as you can see it appear not with the main writers but towards the end of the credit roll.

Now Akshat and Shantanu have decided to withdraw their names from the Filmfare nominations?

I am saddened to hear that two hardworking individuals will be missing out on something they really worked hard towards. I wish Ms. Jyoti Kapoor all the luck, and success for her forthcoming projects.

Breaking News: Filmfare Awards Questioned By Food & Drug Adminstration

SKJ News Bureau

Published

on

For years the popular awards have been sponsored by flush-with-funds companies, some of them of dubious caliber. While earlier, no one questioned the ethics of awards being sponsored by allegedly cancerous products, this time Filmfare awards seems to have got itself into a spot .

A letter from the office of the Joint Commissioner, Food & Drug Administration addressed to the CEO/Organisers of the Filmfare awards , asks why Vimal ,known to produce gutkha and tobacco products which are banned in Maharashtra, is on-board as a sponsor for the Filmfare award this year.

The letter (of which I have a copy) asks the Filmfare awards for an explanation, failing which strict action will be taken.

A health-conscious superstar known for his patriotic cinema and clean image sees this notice as a “timely warning”

“For years these awards have been co-sponsored by pan masala and gutka makers. For me there is no difference between these and underworld funds. Both are illegal. Both kill. The awards should be ashamed to rely on dubious funds,” says this popular hero of the masses and adds jokingly, “Don’t quote me. They’ll never give me an award if you do.”

Ranbir Kapoor Shocks The MeToo Movement

SKJ News Bureau

Published

on

At the Zee Cine awards on Wednesday night Ranbir Kapoor who won the best actor award for his performance in Raj Kumar Hirani’s Sanju, shocked the audience by thanking the director and calling him an “amazing human being” and an “amazing filmmaker”.

Hirani has been called out for sexual harassment some time ago. His name is yet to be cleared.

At the Oscars ceremony in February when Rami Malek won the best actor award for Bohemian Rhapsody during his thankyou speech, he completely ignored director Bryan Singer who has been named in the MeToo movement.

A source close to the Kapoor family says Ranbir has decided to keep himself distanced ftom the allegations against Hirani.

“In fact from what I hear they(Hirani and Ranbir) are planning to work together again,” informs the source.

And why not? Sanju is Ranbir’s first and only blockbuster in years.

This mere-ko-kya-lena-dena attitude is not the least surprising. In the Hindi film industry success far out-weighs all moral condsidreration. It is easy to make en example out of Sajid Khan and sack him from the director’s seat in House Full 4(and that too only after leading man Akshay Kumar insisted) . But when it comes to a personality of Raj Kumar Hirani’s stature everyone, including the vocal sections of the MeToo movement, goes mum.

That’s the way the cookie crumbles, Take it or leave it.

Shashi Kapoor : The Gentleman Actor Who Lashed Out In The Press Only Once

Subhash K . Jha

Published

on

Forever the thorough gentleman Shashi Kapoor’s interaction with the press was impeccable. Polite well-behaved and utterly dignified he never lost his cool in print(there was no internet back then).

But the one time that Shashi lost his cool and lashed out in print was when his dear beloved wife Jennifer Kapoor did not win the National award for her extraordinary performance in Aparna Sen’s 36 Chowringhee Lane.

Strangely Shash Kapoor lashed out at Smita Patil rather than Rekha who won the National award that year for Umrao Jaan.

Explains a source, “Even when he was angry and upset Shashi remembered to be kind to his friends. And Rekha was a dear friend.She had played the lead in three of Shashi’s most prestigious productions Vijeta , Kalyug and Utsav. So Shashi didn’t want to attack Rekha .Instead he deflected his anger to unnamed actresses who get national awards for soaping their armpits.”

A comment that Shashi regretted later, though luckily he hadn’t named Smita.But Smita did win the National award for Chakra in which she was seen bathing under a streetside watertap.

Some years ago when I brought up this soapy slip-up with Rekha she said, “Shashi had every right to be upset. Jenniferji deserved the award much more than me. I didn’t even know what I was doing in Umrao Jaan.”

Shashi could take solace in the fact that many great performers and performances didn’t win any National award. They didn’t honour Dilip Kumar for Ganga Jumna or Devdas.Nor did they honour Rajesh Khanna for Anand or Amar Prem. Even Mr Bachchan’s really great performances in Deewaar and Saudagar went unacknowledged .

Alia Bhatt’s Kathak In Kalank To Land Her The Lead In Bhansali’s Next

Subhash K . Jha

Published

on

Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Alia Bhatt are a collective force waiting to come together at the earliest given opportunity.

If fate had willed the two would have worked together 15 years ago when Bhansali was planning a love story based on child marriage titled Hamari Jaan Ho Tum which he wanted to make with Alia and Aditya Narayan (singer Udit Narayan’s son) in the lead.

That project never happened. Now when Alia is a superstar(no two ways about it) she has shown a keen interest in working with Bhansali. She has met him in his office a couple of times recently. They resolved to work together sooner rather than later.

Perhaps neither realized it would happen so soon.

Alia has beeen cast in Bhansali’s dream project Insha Allah

Apparently the role requires a whole of classical Indian dancing.

“Bhansali saw Alia dancing in the teaser of Kalank. That did it. Alia will be cast in Insha Allah” says a source close to the development.

In fact not too many know this.But Alia was sent by Bhansali to the Kathak exponent Pandit Birju Maharaj to learn Indian classical dancing for Kalank.

Shreyas Talpade Injures Himself On Set,Continues Shooting Despite Pain

Subhash K . Jha

Versatile actor Shreyas Talpade’s plate has been quite full what with shooting for a TV series as well as an upcoming film. Time and again he has proved that his focus on his performances – be it serious roles or comic – remains unmatched.

He has been dedicated to his performance in a limited TV series called ‘My Name Ijj Lakhan’, even as he juggled his back-to-back shooting schedules for his upcoming movie ‘Setters’.

Recently, while shooting for a wrestling scene for ‘My Name Ijj Lakhan’, the actor is believed to have injured his shoulder. Shreyas was in immense pain after the shot and had to take a break because of it, as his cast and crew members got concerned about the injury.

According to a source, Shreyas was in pain for quite some time, and a doctor was called on set. “Shreyas was advised by the doctor to rest for a couple of days due to the injury and extreme strain caused to his shoulder. However, he continued to shoot like a thorough professional, and kept everybody’s morale up,” the source said.

The actor took a couple of painkillers and finished his shoot schedule for the day, and went ahead with all his other work commitments despite the pain and discomfort.

Shreyas was last seen in the 2017 comedy film ‘Golmaal Again’ will soon be seen in a serious avatar in director Ashwini Chaudhary’s ‘Setters’ and a slice-of-life light-hearted family entertainer titled ‘Teen Do Paanch’ this year.

KARMA CAFÉ: A short Film That Takes Us On An Emotional Roller-Coaster

SKJ News Bureau

Published

on

With the onset of the digital revolution, there has been a massive shift for actors, directors, story-writers and the like. Joining the eclectic list with a strong storyline, and a compelling narrative is Karma Café, starring the ubiquitous Amole Gupte and Nakul Sahdev (of GULLY BOY fame) releases today. The psychological thriller with subtle philosophical undertones follows the journey of a young estranged lover ALIF (played by Sahdev) who stumbles upon a curious café run by an intriguing owner – DARPAN (Amole Gupte). ALIF is surprised to learn that this café only serves what he deserves, and DARPAN is almost the mirror of conscience to the estranged lover.

The film has been directed by 4 time International award-winning director – Kabeer Khurana. Co-written by veteran Saeed Mirza, Karma Café has a complex, layered plot taking viewers on an intense journey. 22-time National Award winning production house, Climb Media is producing the short film in association with Humaramovie.com and Anjum Rizvi Film Co.

According to Vinay Mishra, producer with Humaramovie.com, “Kabeer is a young director with an experienced eye. The way he uses lights, camera and movement suggests oodles of talent. Karma Cafe showcases the coming of age of a new talent Kabee r- he has been excelling with experimental stuff so far but this shows his talent with a normal narrative too.”

Speaking on the release Amole Gupte says “To be in Karma Cafe is my Karma. To be in something where my mentor, Saeed Mirza, has penned lines is my Karma. Well, I think I’ve got good Karma in Karma Cafe!”

Nakul Sahdev reminisces “Rarely do you get a chance to redeem yourself as an artist. Karma Cafe was one such experience.”

Saeed Mirza is of the view, “When I finally saw Karma Cafe, I was amazed by the maturity with which the script was handled. It was a delight to watch.”

According to Producer Anjum Rizvi, “”Kabeer has made a film even veterans wouldn’t attempt. With the help of his talented young team, he has made a film which one can really call ‘out of the box.’ A special mention and thank you to Amole and Nakul.”

Director Kabeer Khurana elucidates, “It has been a long but exciting journey for the film. Now that we’ve reached the last leg, we’re really excited to see the audience response. Our film is a labour of love made with the combined passion of several filmmakers and technicians.”
