Amitabh Bachchan on why he rehearses so hard for his films: ‘At my age, I cannot remember my lines’

Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi opened up on why they chose to be a part of Chehre, which is all set to release on August 27.

Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan spoke about how his work excites him even after decades of being a part of the industry. “Cinema is an exciting medium. It is such an exciting and creative journey that all of us take. Whenever we get a new film or a new script, we are excited to know what the story is about or what my character is about. And that’s how we keep moving forward. There is no special reason,” Amitabh Bachchan replied in response to producer Anand Pandit’s question. Bachchan added he was onboard for the Rumy Jafry directorial from the moment he heard the script.

“This story was with Rumy Jafry since a long time. He would keep telling me that he would like to narrate this to me. When he narrated me the script, I was instantly onboard. When people hear about Rumy Jafry, they think about comedy. But this was different. He has never explored such subject before. I am glad to be a part of this,” the actor said.

Emraan Hashmi expressed how he was “excited but also nervous” about sharing the screen space with Amitabh Bachchan. “I was very excited but also nervous. I have grown up watching his films. I don’t know how many times I have watched Sholay or Natwarlal. I was so tensed. I didn’t want to mess up the first day of shoot with him. I didn’t want to forget my lines. I mugged up my lines. But it was the most enriching experience to work with him,” said Emraan, adding, “His specialty is the fact that he gives everything to a film.” In response to Emraan, Amitabh Bachchan said that as an actor, it is nothing but “disrespect to the makers” if they do not give their 100% and do their job perfectly on the sets. “Which is why we rehearse. At my age, we cannot remember lines. I rehearse so that the lines are somewhere in my mind. Many of my co-stars have said that I rehearse a lot. I just tell them to let me do it on my own. But it is necessary,” Bachchan said.

Big B also spoke about the most challenging part of being a part of Chehre. “Any film is challenging but work is work,” he said, adding few words in praise for producer Anand Pandit. “As a producer, Anand ji has really excelled and looked after the entire unit and production so beautifully. I was so petrified when I was told we have to go to Slovakia and shoot in the snow. But when I landed, I saw every crew members was provided with every sort of facilities to survive in that temperature,” he concluded.

Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmis Chehre will release on August 27.

Kabir Khan upset with demonisation of Mughals in Hindi cinema: ‘They were the original nation builders’

On the work front, Kabir Khan is currently waiting for the release of his sports drama 83, starring Ranveer Singh as former Indian skipper Kapil Dev.

Filmmaker Kabir Khan began his Bollywood journey with the 2006 John Abraham and Arshad Warsi-starrer Kabul Express, which was shot in Afghanistan. Since then, Khan has gone on to produce hits like Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Ek Tha Tiger, both starring Salman Khan. Recently, the director opened up about his experience shooting the movie there, depiction of Mughals in Hindi cinema and how ‘bad politics’ of any movie makes him very angry.

When asked whether he would make his directorial debut with a film like Kabul Express today, especially considering the current political scenario, the filmmaker replied in an affirmative. “For me, the core of a film is the politics of the film. When I say the politics of the film, a lot of people sometimes just misunderstand; politics is not about political outfits. Politics is the way we see anything in this world,” said Khan, who, on multiple occasions, has spoken about sensitive issues via his films.

He also spoke about the depiction of the Mughals in Hindi cinema and how they are being force-fit into preconceived notions. “What really makes me upset is that it’s being done just to go with the popular narrative. I can understand when a filmmaker has researched something and a filmmaker wants to make a point… Of course, there can be different viewpoints. If you want to demonise the Mughals, please base it on some research and make us understand why, why they were the villains that you think they were.”

He went on to add that if proper research is done and history consulted, ‘it’s very tough to understand why they have to be villainised’. “I think they were the original nation-builders, and to write them off and say they massacred people… But what are you basing it on? Please point out the historical evidence,” the filmmaker said.

Watch: Mumbai Diaries 26/11 trailer: Amazon Prime Video’s nail-biting thriller honours first responders

Mumbai Diaries 26/11 begins streaming from September 9 on Amazon Prime Video. The thriller is set inside a hospital as terrorists wreak havoc across the city.

The trailer of Amazon Prime Video’s upcoming series Mumbai Diaries 26/11 is out, and it looks like a nail-biting thriller that revisits the events of that fateful night in Mumbai in 2008 when terrorists wreaked havoc across the city. Against the backdrop of that nightmarish real-life event, this drama is set inside a hospital that is under immense pressure due to the attacks.

The trailer sets up the moral conundrum that a doctor could face in such a situation as they are obligated to treat the victims as well as the terrorists. The drama also unfolds with the personal stories of the characters whose loved ones are in a hostage situation.

The series unfolds from the eyes of cops, doctors, media persons and several others who were in the line of fire that day.

The series, starring Mohit Raina, Konkona Sen Sharma, Tina Desai, Shreya Dhanwanthary, Satyajeet Dubey, Natasha Bharadwaj, Mrunmayee Deshpande and Prakash Belawadi, has been created by director Nikkhil Advani. “Mumbai Diaries 26/11 offers a different perspective to the dreadful night of 26/11 which hasn’t been explored on-screen so far. A tribute to the bravery of the frontline workers and the unsung heroes, the series offers a perfect blend of emotions and drama through a versatile ensemble of actors who have put in their heart and soul to bring to life this story. Narrated from the lens of the first responders i.e., doctors, nurses, interns and ward boys, the show transports the viewers into the corridors of the Bombay General Hospital, unfolding what transpired there on that fateful night. It is a series we are immensely proud of and we are honoured to have the Honourable Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Tourism & Protocol, Government of Maharashtra, Shri Aaditya Thackeray grace the trailer launch of the show,” Advani shared in a statement.

At the launch of the trailer in Mumbai, Aditya Thackeray said, “The spirit of Mumbai is undeniably resilient, but behind all that resilience are the many untold stories of the bravery and sacrifice of our frontline workers. Doctors, Nurses, Ward boys, Police, BMC workers – all of whom have been the real heroes that have kept the city running during times of crisis. Today, I am happy to be a part of Sahas Ko Salam – an event that honours the bravery of our frontline workers and witness the trailer of Mumbai Diaries 26/11, a series that pays tribute to these very workers. It is heartening to see such content being made and I would like to congratulate the makers and the cast of the series and Amazon Prime Video for bringing such stories of bravery to life.”

Mumbai Diaries 26/11 begins streaming from September 9 on Amazon Prime Video.

Amitabh Bachchan starts shooting for 13th season of ‘KBC’

Amitabh Bachchan (78-year-old) took to Instagram and posted pictures from the sets of the Sony TV show.

Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan on Wednesday got nostalgic over 21 years of his popular game show “Kaun Banega Crorepati” (KBC) and thanked fans for their constant love and support.

The 78-year-old actor took to Instagram and posted pictures from the sets of the Sony TV show.

“Back on that chair from 2000… That’s 21 years. A lifetime! And gratitude to all that came along,” Bachchan, who began filming for the show’s 13th season on Tuesday, wrote.

The screen icon has hosted the show since its inception in 2000, except for the third season in 2007, which was hosted by superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

Sony TV on late Tuesday evening announced that the show will start airing on August 23.

On the film front, Bachchan has a packed line-up with projects like thriller “Chehre”, Nagraj Manjule’s “Jhund”, Karan Johar-backed “Brahmastra” and Ajay Devgn’s directorial “Mayday”.

Hungama 2 actor Paresh Rawal: ‘Comedies which ridicule physical deformities are absolute filth’

Paresh Rawal, who has featured in landmark comedies like the 1994's Andaz Apna Apna, Kamal Haasan-starrer Chachi 420 (1997) and Hera Pheri (2000), said an actor has to shed arrogance to give a convincing performance.

Veteran actor Paresh Rawal, known for his intense performances as well as flawless comedic timing, says his four-decade-long journey in the movies has taught him that it is necessary to be loyal to the character to deliver a good comedy.

Rawal, who has featured in landmark comedies like the 1994’s Andaz Apna Apna, Kamal Haasan-starrer Chachi 420 (1997) and Hera Pheri (2000), said an actor has to shed arrogance to give a convincing performance.

“You have to stay loyal to the character you’re playing. You can’t enter a set saying, ‘Today I’ll be the flag bearer of comedy, I’ll see who dares do it better than me.’ It’s a wrong notion to have, it’s damaging. You simply have to treat it like a character. Your situation, dialogues will do comedy. You don’t have to. Don’t sacrifice your character for the sake of laughter,” Rawal told PTI in an interview.

The 66-year-old actor has also been a part of some of the most memorable comedies in the last two decades, including Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal, Anees Bazmee-directed Welcome (2007) and the 2010 movie, Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge? His association, particularly with filmmaker Priyadarshan, led to films like Hungama (2003), Hulchul (2004), Garam Masala (2005), Malamaal Weekly (2006) and Bhool Bhulaiyaa (2007).

Rawal believes putting together a genuinely funny film takes the effort of the entire cast and crew.

“Comedy will never work in isolation. If I say in ‘Hera Pheri’ I was the best and Suniel Shetty, Akshay Kumar did nothing then no one is a bigger fool than me. Comedy is made out of everyone’s reactions, not just your actions.”

The actor, however, has his own set of rules while signing a comedy movie.

Rawal champions a certain “innocence in comedy”, which is why anything with sexual innuendos or a film that pulls down others doesn’t work for him.

“I loathe vulgar, double meaning comedies. Comedies which ridicule physical deformities are absolute filth. I stay away from that… But good comedy films are a demand of every era, every time. Whether it’s pre-COVID, during or post, it’s necessary to have good comedies.”Film Star Akshay Kumar, paresh Rawal and Sunil Shetty in Hera Pheri Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal and Suniel Shetty in a still from Hera Pheri.

The actor has reunited with Priyadarshan for the upcoming, Hungama 2. The film, a sequel to the director’s 2003 hit comedy of the same name, is scheduled to be released on Disney+ Hotstar on July 23.

After a working relationship of over 20 years, Rawal said the duo has formed an incredible mutual trust. Priyadarshan knows what to extract from him and he is aware of how the filmmaker sees the world, the actor said.

“Filmmaking is a fragile area. Will the actor be able to deliver what the director wants? In this case, both of us know each other at a personal level. I know how he sees the world. We connect a lot. After pack-up, when we sit down to chat, I tell him about the plays I am doing and he shares about the kind of Malayalam films he is making. The evolution is continuous. The more you know a person, the more you respect them and see that the equation is never damaged.”

Most of the time, Rawal said he simply relies on a brief idea by Priyadarshan before doing a film. But sometimes, he said, it’s also about “never” saying no to a loved collaborator.

“Sometimes you don’t say no to some people. Never. Because even they’re putting their career and respect at stake so you (want to) be with them and support them. That’s how it should be.”

In Hungama 2, Rawal joins actors Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Meezaan, and Pranitha Subhash. It is a remake of Priyadarshan’s 1994 film Minnaram, starring Mohanlal.

With Hungama 2, in which Rawal plays an insecure husband opposite Shetty Kundra, the actor found the perfect project. He said he loved the film’s story as much as the thought of reuniting with Priyadarshan, almost a decade after their 2012 comedy, Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal.

“I love to work with good people, those who know how to do their job. Priyadarshan is a fantastic director, Ratan ji a good producer. The film also had a good storyline. If there’s an opportunity to do something new, there’s always that greed and temptation to attempt it. The package deal of all these factors is what makes me do a project,” he added.

A Venus Records and Tapes LLP project, Hungama 2 is also produced by Ganesh Jain, Chetan Jain, and Armaan Ventures. It is scheduled to premiere on July 23 on Disney+ Hotstar.

Previously, late actor Irrfan Khan was supposed to feature in Tiku weds Sheru. This is the first time Nawazuddin and Kangana will be collaborating on a project. It’s not certain yet if Kangana will also star in the film.

As for Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the actor will be next seen in Sangeen, Heropanti 2 and Jogira Sara Ra Ra.

Vidya recalls facing sexism in Bollywood, being told to work around hero’s dates

Vidya Balan, who will be seen next in Amit Masurkar’s Sherni, opened up about experiencing sexism in the film industry, especially in her initial years.

Actor Vidya Balan has spoken about experiencing sexism in the film industry, much like her character from Sherni faces. In the man-wildlife conflict drama, directed by Amit Masurkar, she plays a forest officer, who battles sexism both in the professional and personal space.

Speaking about facing sexism, Vidya Balan told Hindustan Times, “I think we face sexism all the time, and not just through men, even from women. Sometimes, we do that to other women too. I think misogyny is so intrinsic to the patriarchal mindset, in which we are all steeped, that it is difficult to get rid of it easily. I face it even today, sometimes. It annoys me, but of course, it is much less now than before. All around me, I see people facing sexism. Not everyone is even aware that they are saying something wrong, most of the time.”

Vidya recalled how, when she was starting out in Bollywood, she was asked to adjust her dates according to the male actor’s availability. “In my early years, I would always be told that, ‘The male actor has given his dates, so you will have to work your dates around his.’ Sometimes, it didn’t even matter if I was playing a more prominent role than him in the film,” she said.

Alisha Chinai revisits ‘Kajra Re’ on 16 years of Bunty Aur Babli: ‘It sounded like an angel singing for Aishwarya Rai’

Abhishek Bachchan, Amitabh Bachchan, and Rani Mukerji starrer 2005 hit film Bunty Aur Babli complete 16 years today. Singer Alisha Chinai revisits its iconic item song "Kajra Re" and how Aishwarya Rai's presence enhanced it.

It’s been 16 years since Bunty Aur Babli was released. In case this makes you feel old, banish the feeling for the movie starring Abhishek Bachchan, Rani Mukerji, and Amitabh Bachchan is still as fresh as the day it was released. And not to forget its iconic song “Kajra Re” featuring Aishwarya Rai with Amitabh and Abhishek.

“Kajra Re” features in the movie when Abhishek Bachchan and Rani Mukerji (Bunty and Babli) are on the run as they are expecting their first child together. Bunty bumps into cop Dashrath Singh, played by Amitabh Bachchan, at a bar. Little do they know that the con-artists Big B is looking for, are actually Bunty and Babli.

The real father-son duo indulges in some heart-to-heart conversation over drinks, where Bachchan senior shares his story of heartbreak when Aishwarya Rai walks in as a courtesan and tries to woo not Abhishek, but Amitabh. “Kajra Re” sung by Alisha Chinai, Shankar Mahadevan, and Javed Ali, went on to become one of the biggest hits of Bollywood.

The 8-minute-long song was inspired by a semi-classical genre of singing called ‘kajari’, and amply used sitar to give it a localized tune. Aishwarya, in her special appearance, shook a leg with the two Bachchans, on the unique choreography by Vaibhavi Merchant.

Alisha accepted that its “modern qawwali” style of singing was indeed a challenge for her. But, she lauded the composition of music director Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. “I don’t know how I did it, but I guess the song itself was a really fantastic composition. It pushed me beyond my limits and I’m glad that I could deliver it the way Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy wanted me to,” she added.

Topping it all, according to Alisha, it was Aishwarya’s “angelic” presence that made the song, an iconic item number. “It sounded so angelic. It sounded like an angel singing for Aishwarya. She looked mind-blowing. “Kajra Re” became a trend-setter, a Bollywood anthem,” Alisha concluded.
