Did You Know?


Director J. Om Prakash managed to include in "Aasha" the first screen appearance of his grandson - future Hindi film superstar Hrithik Roshan, then aged only 6 - by shooting him in a music interlude without the boy's knowledge. J. Om Prakash, recalling the event in 2004: 'The song ("Jaane Hum Sadak Ke Logon Se") was to be shot on Jeetendra. Hrithik was on the sets and he liked the interlude music very much and started dancing. I had asked my camera-person and crew to be ready. I asked Hrithik if he liked the song and he said, "Yes, deda, it is lovely music." I replayed the music and he started dancing and we shot it without his knowledge. When the music was over, the entire studio applauded excitingly. The remaining part of the music was to be shot in the same way with Jeetu (Jeetendra, the film's star). After Jeetu's shot was over he came to me and said "For God's sake don't shoot a single more shot in this film with this boy, otherwise the audience will hoot my performance."

beautiful movie !!!
26 October 2004 | by (lagos, nigeria) – See all my reviews

this is one of the smoothest, coolest and most beautiful movie ever produced in bollywood.

a very cool movie starring jeetu, rena roy and rameshwari. the plot, the scriptwriting, the characters were well portrayed. j. om prakash is a master in love story.

the songs are very stimulating. the song 'ashaon ke sawan me' is a masterpiece. jeetu and rena looked extremely radiant and classic. jeetu is ever good in love songs. he is extremely gifted, and directors who understand how to exploit this gift and ability in jeetu enjoy the comfort that he radiates in doing love scenes. he is really a blessing to Hindi filmworld.

aasha is a film to watch any day !!!
