Filmfare replays late Sushant Singh Rajputs exclusive quotes

Like a shooting star he dashed into the orbit of the earth stunning all with his brilliance.Sushant Singh Rajput was not confined to or defined by his identity as an actor. His life spread beyond the 70mm and celebrated the mystery of life. His ‘bucket list’ had 50 dreams lined-up, which included dabbling with Quantum Physics, visiting the Moon, learning to fly a plane, train for Iron Man Triathlon, play tennis with a champ, space training at NASA and even discussing policies with the PM of India… He devoured the philosophy of Sartre and Nietzsche, wove tears into poems, strummed the guitar, was ambidextrous and could mirror write as well – a feat Leonardo da Vinci was known to possess. Perhaps, unconversant with the guile of glamour, he cut short his star trek to move onto a better world. As we mourn his demise, we rerun his quotes from his Filmfare interviews… November 18, 2015 
“Some said wow! Some said what! When we put ourselves in this situation where we can generate this kind of polarised feeling, we evolve as artistes.”“If you draw the line between what people want and what you want to do, then nothing can stop you.”
“As we grow we start confusing things. I call it analysis by paralysis. We analyse too much and paralyse ourselves. We worry too much about the fate of the film.”
“I’ve also learnt that one should not dwell in the past or in the future. The now is what matters.”
“We crib about the discrimination we faced under the Read More…

Looking back at late Sushant Singh Rajputs journey in showbiz 3

Looking back at late Sushant Singh Rajputs journey in showbiz

(January 21, 1986 – June 14, 2020)
Showbiz survives on dreams, and dreamers. On men and women who come to the city with nothing but a burning desire to shine on the big screen. Not all realise their dreams. But the ones who do, inspire a thousand more. Sushant Singh Rajput was one such person, who came to Mumbai and gave more than his 100 per cent to reach the top. But after achieving the unattainable, there remained a void. That perhaps explains the emotional anguish he was reportedly going through in the last few months of his life.Sushant was born in Patna to Krishna Kumar Singh, a government employee and Usha Singh on January 21, 1986. He had four elder sisters. One of his sisters, Mitu Singh, is a state-level cricketer. Being the youngest he was much pampered. The family reportedly moved to Delhi after his mother’s death in 2002. He studied both in Patna and in Delhi. He was a studious child and was, in fact, a national Olympiad winner in Physics. He studied engineering at the Delhi College of Engineering but didn’t complete the course. During college, he joined Shiamak Davar’s dance class and found his calling as a performer. He was considered one of the best students of Shiamak and was a background dancer in one of the Filmfare Awards. He had reminisced about the experience in a Filmfare interview, “I remember watching Hrithik Roshan rehearse. He would execute these perfect steps for 10 minutes and then turn back and ask us if he was doing alright. It wRead More…

All about lyricist Yogeshs glorious career 4

All about lyricist Yogeshs glorious career

(March 19, 1943 – May 29, 2020)
He had been writing poetry ever since he was in school. If the class happened to be punished, the teacher would only let them off the hook if Yogesh Gaur agreed to recite one of his poems. The young boy had no idea back then that he would become a lyricist one day. After his father passed away, Yogesh left Lucknow to try his luck in Mumbai. He landed here with his childhood friend Satyaprakash Tiwari, Sattu in short. They rented a room in a chawl for Rs 11, a big sum those days, and set about finding work. Yogesh’s cousin, Vrajendra Gaur, was a celebrated writer in Mumbai then. Yogesh hoped his cousin would set him up somewhere. But that wasn’t to be. Thankfully, Sattu got a job. As promised, he supported Yogesh till he found his feet. After knocking on every door, Yogesh finally found his calling when he started penning down his thoughts in a diary. Those took the shape of poems. Yogesh realised he could try to be a lyricist. Composer Robin Banerjee, who used to work mainly in action films, taught him how to set words to music. He gave him a break in the film Sakhi Robin (1962). The song was Tum jo aao, sung by Manna Dey and Suman Kalyanpur.
The song got him noticed. But Yogesh was slotted as a ‘B’ movie lyricist. He wrote for action films starring Dara Singh and Randhawa, which were targeted at the mass audience. His films had exotic titles like Tarzan And Delilah and Flying Circus. These may not have won him recognition. But thRead More…

Remembering veteran actor Jagdeep 6

Remembering veteran actor Jagdeep

He’s known as a comedian today but he wasn’t always so. Jagdeep, in fact, was a leading man in many AVM productions films like Bhabhi (1957), Barkha (1959) and Bindiya (1960), and was cast opposite Nanda in the first two.
Many popular songs like Paas baitho tabiyat bahal jayegi from Punarmilan (1964), Chal udd ja re panchi and Chali chali re patang, from Bhabhi, were picturised on him. He later became a comedian and went on to act in more than 400 films.The Partition of India brought forth an exodus of people to Mumbai. Jagdeep, born Syed Ishtiaq Ahmed Jafri on March 29, 1939, was one such unfortunate soul. He came to Mumbai with his mother and took kinds of work to make ends meet. He sold fruit, cutlery on trains and on the street, worked as a waiter and even as a handcart-pusher. His harsh beginnings made him observe life closely — something that came in handy when it came to portraying real-life characters later in films. He was said to be quite resourceful and soon got a small role in BR Chopra’s Afsana (1951). In one of his interviews, Jagdeep described how he was promoted from being paid Rs 3 per day to Rs 6 in his first film itself. His role was that of an extra being played to clap in a scene in the film. “There was a drama scene where children are performing drama. When the scene began the boy who was performing the lead role could not utter the Urdu dialogue. It was in Urdu. Hence I volunteered to act the scene and did it with ease. Chopra saab paid meRead More…

Kirti Kulhari talks about being positive during the lockdown 7

Kirti Kulhari talks about being positive during the lockdown

Kirti Kulhari is back as Anjana Menon in the new season of Four More Shots Please. She plays a successful lawyer and single mother. The show also stars Manvi Gagroo, Bani J and Sayani Gupta. Kirti also talks about how she kept busy herself in the lockdown. People have liked Four More Shots, season 2 very much…
Yes, people liked the first season as well. We have a very big fan following. Girls especially like it as it’s about four girls. The consumption of OTT content has increased currently. Especially in the lockdown, so the show is getting an added benefit. We are getting lots of compliments.
How was it bonding with your co-actors Manvi Gagroo, Bani J and Sayani Gupta? We bonded quite well. While the first season gave us ample opportunities to know each other, during the shooting of the second season we connected more. I would say that this time our on-screen chemistry is better than what we had last time.
The series is being compared to Sex and the City…
It’s good that people are comparing it to Sex and the City. I am okay with the comparison. Sex and the city has been a cult show.
The show has been getting a lot of flak as well…
Yes, but it hasn’t disturbed me. While creating the show, we were aware that we will face a backlash as the show talks about several taboo subjects. I think it depends on the mindset of an individual — how he takes it. Has playing Anjana Menon changed you personally?
Like I said in the show we are discussing taboo subjects,Read More…

9 roles that only Priyanka Chopra could pull off

Miss World, actor, singer and now a producer, Priyanka Chopra is one of the most accomplished personalities in the industry. From playing a seductress to a challenged girl to playing 12 different characters in a single movie, Priyanka has proved she can pull of any role with great panache. Glamour, grit and global love, she’s a celebrity whose charm cuts across continents. As the international star turns 36 today, we list down roles that embellish her oeuvre…Bajirao Mastani (2015)Director: Sanjay Leela BhansaliPriyanka Chopra played the role of Kashibai, Bajirao’s devoted but slighted wife in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani. Hers was a character that displayed dignity and silent strength. Priyanka as the woman, whose self-respect triumphs over a sense of possession, stole the thunder. Every time, you think of Kashibai, we relive Priyanka Chopra’s dialogue, “Aap humse humari zindagi maang lete, hum aapko khushi khushi de dete. Par aapne to humse humara guroor hi cheen liya!”
Mary Kom (2014)Director : Omung KumarWhen Priyanka Chopra was signed on to play a North East Indian boxer, it was attributed to her star power, which was expected to bring in the audiences. But, her performance in the film proved that as an athlete, she could pack in a punch. She combined strength and tenderness in her character to make it relatable to the audience. And you couldn’t help but cheer as she knocked out sexism. As a woman, who battles stereotyping and deals with thRead More…
