Jacqueline Fernandez Modulates Voice for Double Role in Roy

30 January 2015 2:17 AM, PST

The stunning Jacqueline Fernandez will be seen in a double role in her upcoming movie Roy and the actress reveals that she had to work on her voice modulation for each role. Being a perfectionist, Director Vikramjit Singh decided to use sync sound in order to give the film its vintage feel.

She says, “Roy is a film with a lot of dialogues and since Vikramjit had decided on making it with sync sound, it became more difficult for me. My Hindi diction was the least of my problems; the biggest challenge was to get right separate ways of speaking for my characters — Ayesha (filmmaker) and Tia (art enthusiast). The two have starkly different ways of speaking because they aren’t twins.”

Roy is the story of a thief played by Ranbir Kapoor alongside actors Arjun Rampal who portrays a confident yet brazen director and Jacqueline Fernandez in a double role as Ayesha & Tia. »

Box Office – Erotic-supernatural Khamoshiyan takes on fantastical Hawaizaada and dramatic Rahasya

29 January 2015 5:41 PM, PST

Three interesting films belonging to diverse genres clash at the box office this weekend. In fact each of these has a distinct subject which makes them a candidate good enough for a theater viewing. Khamoshiyan is an erotic-supernatural outing from the house of Bhatts. Hawaizaada is an untold story of an Indian who created world’s first unmanned plane. On the other hand Rahasya is apparently a fictional account of Arushi Talwar murder case.

From the opening standpoint, Khamoshiyan would get a better start due to brand Vishesh Films as well as hit music. Moreover, the promos have been decent too and have managed to find eyeballs. A young affair, it should find a better opening at the multiplexes. Though one doesn’t foresee mayhem at the box office on the opening day, the word of mouth should help it during the weekend.

As for Hawaizaada, yet again it would »
