Q. First of all, as I heard about Actor Balraj Vij , Tell some of BALRAJ VIJ films which I think also my Generation would be unaware of his films. As Even I came to know about Raj Kapoor after reading the Book “Khullam Khulla“. What a Cocktail of films. Also Am curious to know about the films acted by Balraj Vij actor .

Deepak Balraj Vij : Ya sure , My Father Balraj Vij was an Actor and was Discovered by Bimal Roy. Bimal Roy is one of the World’s most famous Director as everyone knows. Then Bimal Roy did a film called “Pehla Aadmi” which was based on the principles of Subhash Chandra Bose. The Balraj Vij did a film called “Vachchan” as main lead which was featuring Geeta Bali . The movie had this lovely song “CHANDA MAMA” , which had Music by Ravi and sung by Asha Bhosle. Then he did many films and being his son “I had a very great platform for me” to get into Cinema. My Dad never told me to be a Actor or Director, Think it was Destiny or Circumstances of impact of his movies which brought me to “Indian Cinema“.

Q. You have launched many faces like Baba Sehgal , Ronit Bose Roy and worked with Madhuri Dixit in “Sailaab” which eventually became her First HIT release. Tell of your associations.

Deepak Balraj Vij :See Cinema is such a place when anyone comes here and then everyone goes into their world of discoveries. Some go too high , Some go too low , its all Destiny and then they return with content. Baba Sehgal is a very good Rapper and music director. Aout Madhuri Dixit, what should I say and the Best part is she is natural actor.

In Sailaab , We did a song “HUMKO AAJ KAL HAI INTEZAAR ,KOI LEKE AAYE PYAR” choregraphed by Saroj Khan which Saroj ji use to show to producers that “This song is done by me” and This Hit Jodi got lots of Love with Many songs , EK DO TEEN being the iconic.

Q. Since you have introduced all Biggies of Cinema , Your son Bobby – are you planning to launch him or when can we see him in movies?

Deepak Balraj Vij : Everyone thinks as am Director , I would make film for Bobby but it’s not that way. He has made his way himself, He is one of the top Gladrags Model. Bobby has done lots of theaters and he makes his short films continuously on board. Tom he going for one big coarse to update himself in acting. Yes he will be very soon in Cinema. He knows Martial arts, Dance and all skills.

Deepak Balraj Vij, Priyanka Raina

Also to youngsters, I tell “Keep giving Auditions’ and never say no to good role, rest is your Destiny. like Shatrughan sinha became star even with that one scene. All depends on how you perform.

Q. Your Last film was MAALIK EK which I think was in 2010. And after making such big films which all are Musically Hit, what made a gap of Ten years?

Deepak Balraj Vij : Since Ten years , I have not made any film because earlier when I use to Make films – Was pretty easy. I use to announce when ever I wanted to start a film, For example want to start shooting on 10th and my infrastructure was strong by just calling up “Technical team” picture would start.

Now the biggest reason s “Distributers” and “Financer” whom I call as “Blood Suckers” , take film on 10 percent and Financer charge Two and Half percent interest on Lakh in return. Because of this many producers were in loses , Had to sell their homes to make films. Even I had to sell one of Home , well designed which I feel tell now. This all things go on , Then I thought what films to make and what I have to sell. Then I stopped and started working just as a Director.

Up to 25 films, I have directed as a Director and in all my films , Producers have earned huge profits. And even I got huge money. SO thought “why take tension” , Just be a Director and be happy. and In these Ten years , I have made lots of short Films. One of which is Made In India.

Q: Talking on Music , Music of all your films have been romantically Hit so far…

Deepak Balraj Vij : Music of all films weather “Sailaab” or “Jaan Tere Naam” or you talk on “Stuntman” is being loved, Coz I believe MUSIC is the only piece that connects with heart. and as you can see in background here too – with a soft Music. Music gives a warm sensation so I choose songs which I should feel in love first.

Q- Talking on Fans Question “Real Cinema or Commercial Cinema – Which of these give Director a major Throwback”

Deepak Balraj Vij : Good Question, see Real films are such which have real effect like when PM Rajiv Gandhi went in Bombblast – So I called up IMPPA and registered title “BOMBBLAST“. They were telling that such a incident has happened , everyone is sad and you want to register.

On this I told, “Incident has happened , I am sad and as am Filmmaker have idea in mind and if someone takes this title, Then I cannot make. I make films on real incident so this is called Realistic cinema. Now talking on Commercial films, I have given commercial Hits like Jaan Tere Naam which is totally opposite of this

Q What are your upcoming Projects in line?

Deepak Balraj Vij : My future projects are that I am directing one web series and planning to make sequel of JAAN TERE NAAM 2. That is only film I want to do as it had wonderful Music.

Q: Talking on Journalism, How would you differentiate Journalism in ancient in Todays times?

Deepak Balraj Vij : Firstly a sad news that a top most paper “Mumbai Mirror” has closed down. Now Talking on Journalism in 90s , what ever we use to share with them- They would only print that – And in return Gift give a Bottle of “Whisky” , “Conveyance” etc.

Also if outdoor shoot , some makers like Subhash Ghai would call them to shoot BY AIR , and it was all a different experience. Talking on Todays Journalism , We dont have to tell them a word, as they get matter via digital platforms. They take your information’s and check your history on Google , then by adding MASALA make a nice story. But I love Todays Journalism , Because I know once you say anything – It will take just a moment and you are on Air.

And as I can see all AWARDS on wall which you can see in video , On this Deepak Balraj VIJ says “This is in all a struggle of making 25 films , which takes a huge time”

Watch VIDEO for to see the Legacy of AWARDS of all musically Hit Films

Rani Mukerji on World Disability Day ‘I learnt a lot about humanity by doing Black and Hichki’

‘I learnt a lot about humanity by doing Black and Hichki’

*‘I learnt a lot about humanity by doing Black and Hichki’ : on World Disability Day, Rani Mukerji speaks about the need to be an inclusive, empowering society*

Rani Mukerji

Rani Mukerji has always wowed audiences with her brilliant performances in her cinematic career. Critics and audiences rate her performance in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Black to be her masterpiece and her acting in Hichki as one of her career best. Her impeccable acting as a specially-abled girl Michelle McNally in Black, who strikes a beautiful and soulful bond with her teacher, and her portrayal of a confident Tourette Syndrome patient, Naina Mathur, looking to stamp her presence in this world in the superhit Hichki, helped spark necessary societal conversations about inclusivity and the need for equal rights of citizens.

On World Disability Day today, Rani speaks about the need to be an inclusive, empowering society for all Indians. “I learnt a lot about humanity by doing these outstanding, sensitive films like Black and Hichki. I think these films contributed to making me a better human being and I’m fortunate that I got to do these films and be a part of such beautiful cinematic visions of Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Siddharth P. Malhotra. I hope these films managed to spark the right conversations in society about the need to treat everyone as an equal,” she says.

Rani says the characters Michelle McNally and Naina Mathur has made her a stronger human being. She adds, “I learnt about the resolve of people who are determined to triumph despite all odds stacked up against them, their dreams, their aspirations and essaying these powerful girls on screen, made me a stronger human being. I’m grateful that I can talk, see, hear and I realized that, as human beings, we might be taking these things for granted.”

Rani says stereotyping of human beings because of their handicap must end at all cost. She says, “For me, Black and Hichki were emotional experiences that opened my eyes more towards inclusivity for all, kindness and gratitude for what we have. As citizens of this country, we must all do our bit to constantly bring conversations about inclusivity and equality to the fore. Every citizen has rights and I realized that there is a lot of work that we all need to put in, individually, to stop discrimination and stereotyping of individuals like those I have portrayed in Black and Hichki.”

Yash Chopra was so fond of Tere Liye that it remained as his ringtone till he breathed his last (Read Story)

Yash Chopra was so fond of Tere Liye that it remained as his ringtone till he breathed his last….

On the 16th anniversary of the timeless romance Veer-Zaara, Madan Mohan’s son Sanjeev Kohli recounts how the iconic soundtrack of the film was created Yash Chopra’s Veer-Zaara, which starred Shah Rukh Khan, Rani Mukerji and Preity Zinta, was a blockbuster romance.

By Priyanka Raina

The film’s beautiful story was a rage among audiences and this catapulted the movie to a timeless love story status. Veer-Zaara’s music too is iconic as audiences were treated to late Madan Mohan’s unreleased and brilliant soundtracks like Tere Liye. Yash Chopra loved the song so much that it remained his ringtone till he breathed his last. Yash Chopra wanted an old world score for the film which was set 22 years earlier.

He had sittings with various composers but felt it was not working. In a chance moment, Madan Mohan’s son Sanjeev Kohli, who was CEO of YRF at the time, mentioned that his late father had left behind some unused/rejected  dummy compositions. Yash Chopra and Aditya Chopra heard them and immediately decided that Veer Zaara would have music by the maestro! Sanjeev Kohli recounts in the book Veer-Zaara,

The Memoirs of a Love Legend, “Veer-Zaara for me was the realization of a dream that I could never believe would ever come true. When my father, the late composer Madan Mohan, passed away in 1975, he was only 51 years old. A lot of music still to be created, a lot of tunes yet to be shared with the world, a lot yet to be achieved! He was widely acknowledged as a great composer but big banners, films with big stars and popular awards always eluded him, and in fact this hurt him deeply. The tapes remained safely kept away, though, over the years, they were suffering damage and with technological developments, they would soon be obsolete.” He adds,

“In 2003, one day Yashji told me that after 6 years he had decided to direct another film, but a film that needed old world music that was away from the western influences that had crept into the scene today. Instinctively, I blurted that I had some old world melodies on tape, now not heard for 28 years. He seemed excited at the idea and very surprised that I had never mentioned this before.

His son, Aditya Chopra was scripting the new film. Adi was a man of today and needed commercially acceptable songs. There was no place for nostalgia and emotions here. Only Yashji and Adi knew what they needed. I didn’t.” The selected unheard tunes were recorded, some 50 years after they had been composed! This had never happened before and Billboard magazine wrote about its significance. The song Tere Liye which became the song of the year then, was based on a rejected tune for the song Dil Dhoondta Hai from  a 1975 film, Mausam!

Javed Akhtar, who made his debut as a lyricist with Yash Chopra’s Silsila in 1981, worked again with the director over two decades later with this film. Lata Mangeshkar was 75 years old at the time, but it was befitting that she sing the songs as these tunes were originally composed by Madan Mohan decades ago, for her to sing! Sanjeev says that the songs took a year to record and opens up about how Yash Chopra was keen to have Lata Mangeshkar sing in the album! He says,

“Yashji was clear that only Lataji would sing the female songs and that thrilled me because all Madanji tunes were made only for Lataji and it would have been incomplete if she did not sing them. But at the same time it concerned me. It would be so challenging for her to sing for Madanji again after 30 years! She was keeping indifferent health and people could be unfair in passing judgment on her. But she found an inner strength to sing as only she can.” Sanjeev was thrilled when his father’s compositions received such overwhelming love.

He says, “With Veer Zaara, every fantasy of mine came true in one stroke. Madanji’s tunes formed the soundtrack of one of India’s biggest and most successful films, created by India’s most successful producer and director, Yash Chopra. The top stars of today, Shahrukh Khan, Preity Zinta, and Rani Mukherji, formed the cast of this film. And what a coincidence that Amitabh Bachchan and Hema Malini danced to his tunes again and once again his songs were on the top of the charts for almost an entire year, and he finally won many popular awards.”

This LAXMII (Review) is Full “BOMB”| Akshay Kumar | Raghuvendra

Produced by– Tusshar Kapoor
Directed by – Raghuvendra
Featuring -Akshay Kumar , Rajesh Sharma , Manurishi Chaddha , KAIRA
Review By – Priyanka Raina

Lets go in small flashback for a while. Earlier Renown Production Balaji Telefilms had attempted making of HORROR film titled “Kuch To Hai” which no wonders had amazing songs, eye opening locations, But talking about “Horror” was a bit “Comedy” as Suspense was predicted for Rishi Kapoor. Also Krishna Cottage on same level .

Now Actor Tusshar Kapoor opened his own Production and decided to remake South film “Kanchana” in Hindi titled as “LAXMII

LAXMII (Poster)

LAXMII is directed by same “Kanchana” Director Raghuvendra and features Akshay Kumar and Kaira Advani in Lead roles. Also Rajesh Sharma , Manurishi Chaddha added flavors.

“LAXMII” is a the Story of Asif (Akshay Kumar) who doesn’t believe in BHOOT or anything and often says that he will wear bangles when ever he will see Bhoot. Now when ASIF goes to his inlaws place , On way he adventures “Bungalow No 6” and strange things happen to them from then.

“Strange” things were actually comedy , Like Akshay Kumar walking typically in his DISHOOM avatar where he had played Gay role earlier too. When Suspense was revealed in form of LAXMII ‘s story, that was neither surprising too.

Good Actors like Manurishi Chaddha and Rajesh Sharma were good , but were totally wasted. Kaira Advani used just a decorative piece- You can as Typical Heroine material. And Akshay Kumar , after doing such good Message oriented films like Rustom, Padman , what made you do such a pathetic film LAXMII.

Do Check out Video Review of LAXMII By Priyanka Raina

Ratings – Are You kidding , can give just 2 Stars to the film

LAXMII (2020) is available on DISNEY + HOTSTAR , Do let us know your feedback about our review

‘I have checked into a hotel’ -reveals Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana , who despite shooting in his hometown Chandigarh isn’t staying with his family because of coronavirus threat

*‘I have checked into a hotel’ : reveals Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana,* who despite shooting in his hometown Chandigarh isn’t staying with his family because of coronavirus threat

By Priyanka Raina

Ayushmaan Khuraana

Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana is busy shooting his next, a progressive love story Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui, being directed by Abhishek Kapoor. The youth icon, who has been recently voted TIME magazine’s one of the most influential people in the world, is shooting this film in his hometown Chandigarh but we discovered that he is not staying with his family! In fact, he has checked himself into a hotel! Reason – the deadly coronavirus threat that is looming on the heads of every Indian.

Ayushmann reveals, “I have been extremely cautious through the pandemic and taken every possible step to not catch the virus and protect my family. My wife and my two young kids can never come in harm’s way because of me. With me starting to work, our parents in Chandigarh too should be safe at all times. Though I want to contribute to restart the industry, I also want to safeguard my family from the virus.”

He adds, “Following this, I have checked into a hotel along with the entire production team. We are all staying there till the end of the shoot. Whenever I go to meet my family now, we are maintaining social distance and also wearing our masks. It feels odd but it is an important security step.”

Ayushmann admits that is dearly missing spending time with his family. He says, “I’m also getting tested at regular intervals through the shoot to keep checking on my health. Staying at a hotel helps protect my family and the crew members because we have all tried to create a bio-bubble. Once the shoot is complete, I will catch up on lost time with my family and I’m really looking forward to it.”

Ayushmann credits Abhishek and Pragya Kapoor and their entire production crew’s supervision to keep the virus at bay on the sets of Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui.

“The production team has done a good job in ensuring that our set is a safe work place for everyone. We are shooting in extraordinary circumstances that no one has ever seen before and our production team has really left no stone unturned to ensure we are all safe and healthy,” he says.Attachments area

It’s an incredible script and I’ve lived with the story as drafts have improved through the lockdown. I can see it being challenging and super fun to do.

Tahir Raj Basin ,Priyanka Raina

It is also very different from anything that I’ve explored before which only doubles the excitement!” says Tahir, who will also be seen playing the role of Sunil Gavaskar in the Ranveer Singh starrer 83. Tahir adds, “The producers – Atul Kasbekar and Tanuj Garg of Ellipsis and the Studio, Sony, are very aware of the new work environment we are venturing into. They are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that the film set is a safe work space that protects every crew member and the project.” Taapsee and Tahir are an exciting new on-screen pairing and Tahir is confident that audience will love their chemistry. 

He says, “A lead pair in acting is a bit like a dance duet. The performance works if both dancers do. To have Taapsee is going to be brilliant and I hope the audience sees this chemistry. She has an incredibly charming energy and she’s an outstanding, instinctive actor. I look forward to exploring the world of Looop Lapeta with her.” 

Tahir is excited about the industry restarting itself after over six months of total shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic. “The lockdown was a time to pause and reassess for everyone. Projects have had time for rewrites and improvements. People appreciate being at work and around friends more. It has changed our attitudes toward health and safety. To be back in the ring and a part of one of the first few projects to kick start its engines is a great feeling. It is simultaneously invigorating and a responsibility to set a sustainablework template,” he adds
