A Rajkumar Hirani film is eagerly awaited by every film lover and with good reason. He is, after all, this generation’s Hrishikesh Mukherjee. His films display the same genteel storytelling, similar focus on social issues and are packed with huge dollops of entertainment. However, the most brilliant of film makers slip up now and then, and Hirani has indeed slipped a bit with Pk.

Junooniyat to bring back Kashmir’s beauty on big screen

20 December 2014 6:08 AM, PST

Junooniyat, produced by Bhushan Kumar of T-series, has wrapped up its first shooting schedule last week in Kashmir. Director of the film, Vivek Agnihotri says he had two particular reasons for which he decided to shoot in Kashmir. First, this is the only time in year when royal Chinar trees shed their striking red and orange leaves, which is a breathtaking sight and very distinct to Kashmir. He wanted to capture that beauty.

Says Vivek, “This happens for only 15 days in a year and as soon as the season arrived, we were in Kashmir to capture the beauty. I shot several scenes and a romantic track there as my hero Pulkit Samrat’s character, an army man is based in Kashmir.”

The second reason which filmmaker points out is, this is the only time when the Dal lake is enveloped in a thick fog cover, which seems like a huge white screen. »

Exclusive: Rahul Bhat from Ugly gets into the skin of his character

19 December 2014 9:03 PM, PST

Good actors do good work and great actors take their work really seriously. With realistic cinema experience on the rise, many of them go to great lengths to get into the skin of the character. Now, news is that actor Rahul Bhat took a similar route to prepare for his role in Ugly.

From the trailers we can assume that Rahul Bhat plays the role of a father whose daughter is kidnapped. His character is constantly on the road searching for his lost daughter and the twist is that he actually ventured on to the streets aimlessly roaming around for a week to get a feel of his character.

The film requires him to be intense and in a mess desperately looking for his child. According to sources, after this experiment he took this experience to the sets of the film and performed better.

Akshay Kumar takes tough stand against rape atrocities

19 December 2014 4:32 AM, PST

Akshay Kumar is a man who says what he thinks, and so he recently voiced his views on women’s security by raising speculative concerns that not enough is being done in his homeland of India to prevent and deter the widespread rapes cases emerging.

The international film star has stated that so often, rapists are unafraid of committing crimes, with a large proportion of rape cases being repeat offenses. Speaking to the Hindustan Times, Akshay notes, “We need to put fear in men, instead of women walking around in fear every day. There is no excuse not to have a strict punishment for such inhumane action.”

These comments have been made in the aftermath of a string of rape cases, most recently the alleged rape of a financial analyst by a taxi driver in Delhi.

The Indian film star admits his additional concerns for his two-year old daughter, Nitara, »
