Shakespearean Tragedies: Love and Bollywood

2013, the extra special year marking the centenary of Hindi Cinema is almost coming at an end.

To celebrate, BollySpice briefly explores the theatrical roots of Bollywood, expanding on the contribution of William Shakespeare, the famous playwright who has continuously intrigued the Indian film industry since the beginning of the Hindi film industry.

Aankhen remake with Ranbir

Aankhen remake with Ranbir
Around a year back there were strong talks about Rohit Shetty remaking Sanjiv Kumar starrer Angoor with Shah Rukh Khan. In fact the director and the actor had apparently agreed on the basic premise as well which was inspired by William Shakespeare's play 'Comedy of Errors', only to drop the idea and make Chennai Express instead. Just when the rumours had settled, grapevine has it that Ranbir Kapoor may have been approached to step into the same shoes. The only tiny problem though is that except for Ranbir himself, everyone else seems to be aware about the development.

"Ranbir has absolutely no idea from where are these rumours originating. He hasn't even heard about any such film and nothing has been offered to him yet. It is strange that his name has been dragged into this so-called remake which is supposed to go on floors soon", says a close associate of the actor.

In the memory of Sanjeev Kumar

In the memory of Sanjeev Kumar
He broke all the rules of stardom and yet was a star, a romantic hero and an all-rounder par excellence. 47 was no age for one of Hindi cinema's brightest talents to go, but on November 6, 1985, Sanjeev Kumar passed away, leaving fans, friends and the Hindi film shell-shocked. Gulzar remembers Sanjeev Kumar "For me, he was the complete actor. I have always said that I had two anchors - one was Sanjeev Kumar, and the other was R.D.Burman. What most people do not know is that I knew Haribhai (as I called him) from the late 1950s. We were both with the Indian National Theatre where I would write for the plays and he was a stage actor. Sanjeev was a student of P.D.Shenoy, who was also teaching at the Filmalaya School of Acting and later turned film director. Sanjeev was just over 20 years old, and he was playing a father!
