Lagaan -Very first movie of “Aamir Khan Productions” featuring Aamir Khan, Gracy Singh, AK Hangal and many more. Also it was the directorial Debut of Ashutosh Gowarikar. Sharing a small trivia about film, which initially I saw in making during my “Direction” coarse.
Did you know initially the story of “Lagaan” was rejected by Aamir Khan? . So as a result, Ashitosh Gowarikar wet to his home , locked him selves and started rewriting the story of Lagaan again. This took a long duration of six months.
So after finishing , he met Aamir Khan .Aamir Khan , “Where had you been for so long?” . On seeing story Aamir says, “Don’t tell me that you had been wasting time in that crap”. Ashitosh requests that pls listen one time , and just tell hows it.
Aamir Khan agreed to listen and so the program of narration was made with few more guests from film fraternity. In guests were even veteran producer Jhamu Sungadh. This time Ashutosh started narrating and as narration was going on, people started taking interest in it, also laughing on emotional moments. All this was noticed by Aamir Khan.
After listening to story for at least three to four times, Aamir Khan finally agreed to do film. But he thought for a moment, ” This movie where Director has to get full liberty, so who can be such producer who can blindly invest?”. “There cant be better producer then me, but I am acting and how can I produce”, Aamir Khan said to himself and at moment he brought his wife Reena Roy on board “This is your company, manage the production as I am acting” . Henceforth the process of Lagaan began with so many things simultaneously at one moments. Like on one hand location was sorted in “Bhuj” where the whole village was created . Here what I saw from outside there were small huts , but inside there were Engish toilets , adding sofa and air conditioners as temperature was too hot at time.
At same time in Mumbai, auditions process was going on . Here the actors have to come in village dress so that one gets a better look for film. Once actors were selected, Aamir Khan thought again “This is a movie where entire unit has to be together, in all it should look like a village” . So he booked every actor Six lakhs per month for 6months (36 lacs) and told “now just focus on work, do case study when we reach location”.
Actors reached location and started practicing like one making pots , one catching hen and etc. For cricket crowd , tons of people were called from villages nearby , giving them packet of biryani each. Isnt this seem a full fledge picnic, no wonder the film was a blockbuster.
Now coming to GADAR EK PREM KATHA, featuring Sunny Deol , Amrish Puri, Amisha Patel, Utkarsh and directed by Anil Sharma. Movie proved to be a hard hitting film on Box office.
Some scenes unlike “Handpump” effect became the iconic moments to cherish upon. Indeed what a day in Indian Cinema. Will we ever get such kind of film in Indian Cinema, The question is still alive”, – Priyanka Raina
India’s biggest production house, Yash Raj Films, had pledged to vaccinate the members of the Hindi film industry and we have confirmed information that Aditya Chopra has started the much-needed vaccination drive that will enable these workers to resume working. This ushers in a massive ray of hope for the media and entertainment industry of India that has been crippled by the coronavirus pandemic since last year.
Aditya Chopra has opened the doors to his sprawling YRF studios for this vaccination drive that will look to inoculate at least 4000 workers in its first phase. YRF has pledged that it will do its best to vaccinate 30,000 registered members of the FWICE (Federation of Western India Cine Employees). The company has already vaccinated its employees in an earlier drive that happened within the YRF Studios in Mumbai.
Akshaye Widhani, Senior Vice President, Yash Raj Films, says, “After inoculating all the employees at YRF, we started vaccinating the crew members of our films and we are now delighted to have started the vaccination drive for the Hindi film industry. This will result in the daily wage earners of our industry to return to work and provide financial stability for themselves and their families.
The drive will have to take place in phases, given the huge number of vaccines that are required to cover the industry. In the first phase, that starts today, we would be able to inoculate at least 3500-4000 people. YRF is committed to provide a helping hand in restarting the industry that has been hit hard by the pandemic.”
Being a Raj Kapoor fan , sharing a trivia about how it all started . As we all know that Raj Kapoor movies had incredible music, songs which melted our heart. And it all started when a struggling lyrics writer Majrooh Sultanpuri came into the eye as he was trusted friend of Jaddanbai.
Jaddanbai was Nargis Dutt “s Mom who use to accompany her to sets .As Raj Kapoor and Nargis Dutt were shooting two movies at that time, One day when Jaddanbai could not go to sets , so she requested her assistant writer MAJROOH SULTANPURI to go to shoot. The film then being made was AAG, which was produced and directed by Raj Kapoor.
Starting with poetic conversation on sets, soon Raj Kapoor asked him to pen a song on situation and Majrooh Sultanpuri wrote song “Raat ko ji chamke taare”. This song was recorded by composer Ram Ganguly in the voices of Mukesh and Shamshad Begum.
Now Raj Kapoor loved the way Majrooh used to pen songs and soon he became the solo lyricist of ANDAZ which was produced and directed by Mehboob Khan, which was released in same year of Raj Kapoor’s Barsaat where he introduced another fresh pair of lyricist HASRAT JAIPURI and SHAILENDRA.
However Raj Kapoor was observing Majroh Sultanpuri ‘s rapid progress as when he wrote poem against Jawaharlal Nehru at meeting orgaised for mill workers in mumbai where he clearly mentioned him as “Hitlor”.
Majrooh was asked to apologize , and he refused to do so saying “Writer has no limitations” and he was jailed. In jail, when Raj Kapoor went to visit him and he asked, “So Mr. writer , what is the song that you have been thinking about current situation?
On this Majrooh incidentely wrote “DUNIYA BANANEWALE KYA TERE MANN MEIN SAMAYI , KAAHE KO DUNIYA BANAAYI” which was then penned for Teeseri Kasam movie. The song meant “O creator of this world, what came into your mind? Why did you create this world.” .
Raj Kapoor imediately paid him 1000 rupees for that song which was quite high that time as lyrics were paid only 150 Rupees. With the permission of Majrooh Sultanpuri , Raj Kapoor appointed Lyrics writers Hasrat Jaipuri and Shankar Jaikishan for finishing of song. This song was then sung by Mukesh and composed by Shankar Jaikishen.
In 1973, Raj Kapoor signed Majrooh Sultanpuri for his own production RK BANNER with the movie Dharam Karam which was directed by his son Randhir Kapoor.
Majrooh then wrote the iconic legendary song EK DIN BIK JAAYEGA sung by Mukesh which became a huge classical song for years. So this was how Raj Kapoor immense love for Music in Indian cinema , and we got some incredible songs to be loved forever. And Majrooh Sultanpuri hence wrote all songs for RK Banner .
Isn’t that an Incredible Love for cinema which would be remembered for years, guess when we will get those days back where Love had no boundaries.
