Framing Movies Take Twenty-Four: Mahaan (1983)

10 October 2013 9:05 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Every major actor and actress in Bollywood will at one stage attempt the double role. It is up there on every distinguished star’s curriculum vitae. There a countless examples Hum Dono (Dev Anand), Ram aur Shyam (Dilip Kumar), Seeta aur Geeta (Hema Malini), Apu Raja (Kamal Hassan), Chaalbaaz (Sri Devi), Kishan Kanhaiya (Anil Kapoor) and many many more. In addition to these we have Amitabh Bachchan’s own contributions to the double role genre, but to celebrate 100 years of Indian cinema and its great tradition of double roles, we thought we would choose a slightly different film – Mahaan.

A triple role! Now that is is a completely different level and there is only one actor, the superstar of Indian cinema, who has truly attempted and achieved that – Amitabh Bachchan. Father, son and son – that was Mahaan. The father donned a beard, one son a moustache, the other clean shaven. »

Chitrangda dances to Sridevis Chaalbaaz track

Like all of us, Chitrangda Singh is a Sridevi fan. No wonder Chitrangda was over the moon when last week she got to perform one of Sridevi's most beloved dance numbers 'Na Jaane Kahan See Aayi Hai' from the film Chaalbaaz with John Abraham in their film together I Me Aur Main. Chitrangda, basking in the rave reviews she has received for her performance in Inkaar, had to share the number with Prachi Desai. Not just that the entire song has been turned down from a female-gender perspective to a male one, to suit the leading man's stature. An indication of the male-domination that controls the film industry? Chitrangda laughs her throaty laughter and says, "I told John the revised avatar of the Sridevi song goes well with his character in I Me Aur Main. But seriously, all three of us John, Prachi and I had fun dancing to the number. »
