In 2008, Sanjay Gupta under his banner White Feather Films had made Dus Kahaniyaan which was the first feature length film in India to have ten short films within it. It had stars like Nana Patekar, Naseeruddin Shah, Shabana Azmi, Sanjay Dutt, Manoj Bajpayee amongst a host of others. Sanjay Gupta's love for the short story format continues as he has just started writing a series of short stories to be published as a book. "I've finished writing the first three and to be honest am quite enjoying the process. My cinema is essentially dark and nourish, but I am consciously moving away from that space and making my films brighter now. So this is the obvious platform for me to release all the dark stories I still want to tell and to tread fearlessly in telling these stories. It's a luxury you do not have when writing for the screen. »
To celebrate acclaimed Bollywood playback singer Sunidhi Chauhan’s UK tour, the team at BollySpice thought it would be cool to put together a special feature which looks at her greatest songs. Sunidhi is unsurprisingly in-demand amongst Bollywood filmmakers, who want her voice to be mimed by some of the hottest actresses in the industry. Her success is evident in the fact that she will be gracing the stage of the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London this Friday as part of her UK tour.
Having first acquired popularity by singing the songs for the film Mast (1999), Sunidhi is considered one of few who can use her voice to give it that provocative touch. She has sung to some of Bollywood’s most iconic tracks and has to some extent contributed towards the popularity of actresses like Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor and Bipasha Basu by lending them her voice in their films. »

One of the things we like to do here at BollySpice is shine the light on some people who work hard at the movies but never really get the focus on them: people like producers, singers, composers, music directors, costumers and more. Today we have a unique treat just for you. We recently interviewed Gourov Dasgupta, the music director of the upcoming thriller Enemmy and it was a fab. One of the coolest things is that he gave a shout-out to all of his team that worked on the Ost with him. We thought it would be really interesting to talk with them as well. See what music producer Roshan Balu, lyricist Manathan and signers Torsha and Keshav told us about the music of Enemmy!
