Prakash Jha thought Priyanka Chopra won’t have time for ‘Jai Gangaajal’
Priyanka Chopra, Jai Gangaajal, Prakash Jha, Priyanka Chopra Jai Gangaajal, Priyanka Jai Gangaajal, Prakash Jha Jai Gangaajal, Priyanka Chopra in Jai Gangaajal, Entertainment news Filmmaker Prakash Jha says he and actress Priyanka Chopra were very keen to work with each other for years.

Filmmaker Prakash Jha says he and actress Priyanka Chopra were very keen to work with each other for years, but when he was working on “Jai Gangaajal”, he felt she wouldn’t have time for the project, given her busy schedule.

Jha said: “We were talking since many years that we should be working together. And when I started developing this idea, there were discussions and I told Priyanka that she would not have the time for it since she was doing ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and ‘Quantico’, and might even go to the moon for a new film.”

Ultimately, Priyanka signed up for the film in which she has essayed a furious police officer.

“When I narrated the script to her. in 15 minutes she said that she will do Abha Mathur’s role and also said that no one else could play it. I asked her to take out dates… So, she took the 30-day period between the two films and we completed ‘Jai Gangaajal’ in that period,” Jha added.

The 63-year-old filmmaker is known for his films “Apaharan”, “Raajneeti”, “Aarakshan” and “Satyagraha”. He is also making his acting debut with “Jai Gangaajal”, which revisits the dusty heartland of central India and examines the society-police relationship.

Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who stars in “Sarbjit”, a biopic on Indian prisoner Sarabjit Singh, today visited Golden Temple for shooting of the film here.

Clad in Punjabi suit with her head covered with a dupatta, the actress paid obeisance in the sanctum sanctorum of the Golden Temple.

Thereafter she went to Langar (community kitchen) of the Golden Temple where she cooked food, cleaned the floor with devotion to seek blessing from Almighty.

Shooting for film began in the afternoon and it continued till evening whereupon different kind of scenes were shot including inside the community kitchen while cleaning utensils, cleaning floor of Langar, cooking vegetables.

She was seen standing before the deg (big ironed rounded utensils) used for cooking for several hundred people.

In the Omung Kumar-directed movie, the 42-year-old actor plays the role of Sarabjit’s sister Dalbir Kaur, while actor Randeep Hooda will be seen in the titular role.

The film is slated to release on May 20. It will be shot in various cities of Punjab including Amritsar, Malerkotla and Patiala.

The film captures the plight of prisoners lodged in various jails across the border.

“I hope the biopic will highlight the plight of Indian prisoners lodged in various jails in Pakistan,” said Dalbir Kaur sister of Sarbjit Singh, who struggled for decades to get her brother out of the Pakistani prison.

Sarabjit died after a brutal attack by jail inmates in a Pakistani jail in 2013. He was convicted of terrorism and spying by a Pakistani court and sentenced to death in 1991 but the government had stayed his execution for an indefinite period in 2008.

His sister and family started a campaign for his release saying he was the victim of mistaken identity and had inadvertently strayed across the border in an inebriated state.

About Aishwarya playing the role, Dalbir said, “She is the right choice. I came to know that while shooting a scene for the film earlier, she turned emotional.

“I strongly wish that film should depict the hardships faced by Sarbjit Singh during his life time especially the time he had spent in the Kotlakhpatrai jail of Lahore in Pakistan where he was killed in a murderous attack by one of the jail mate” Kaur quipped.

Manish Paul’s Amitabh Bachchan fan tales
Manish Paul, Amitabh Bachchan, Manish Paul Big B, Manish Paul Fan Tale, Manish Paul Amitabh Bachchan Fan, Manish paul BIg B Fan tale, Entertainment news Manish Paul says he was ridiculed while growing up for imitating Amitabh Bachchan’s popular ‘Mard’ tattoo on his chest.

Actor Manish Paul calls himself a big fan of Bollywood’s ‘Shahenshah’ Amitabh Bachchan, and says he was ridiculed while growing up for imitating the popular ‘Mard’ tattoo on his chest.

“I am a huge fan of Amitji. Generally I never fumble during a scene but when ever I have shot with him I become spellbound. I still remember we were shooting and Amitji had finished saying his lines and it was my turn.

“I was just staring at him. My mind knew what my lines were but my mouth wasn’t allowing the words to come out. That is the kind of effect he has on me.

“While growing up, whenever I used to go out for my house chores, I would ask my mother to tattoo the word ‘Mard’ on my chest with a sketch pen the same way he had in the movie ‘Mard’. I used to be ridiculed by my entire neighbourhood on this,” Manish said in a statement.

The actor and host, who is awaiting the release of “Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive”, confessed about his admiration for the 73-year-old star in TV show “Mission Sapne”.

Manish was a part of the Colors show as he turned into an autorickshaw driver to support Vasant Raut. And when Raut also turned out to be Amitabh’s admirer, the actor shared his story.

He even said that if given an opportunity, he would always entertain audiences with Big B’s signature dialogues or dance to his evergreen songs.


There’s a lot to learn from the west: Anil Kapoor
Anil kapoor, Anil Kapoor 24, Anil Kapoor 24 series, 24, Anil Kapoor tv Show, Anil Kapoor in 24, Anil Kapoor Tv Series, Anil Kapoor 24 Season 2, 24 season 2, Entertainment news “I personally feel television writing in the west is something else. There is a lot to learn from them,” Anil Kapoor said.

Actor-producer Anil Kapoor, who is busy gearing up for “24: Season 2”, feels there is a lot that writers in India can learn from those in the west.

Anil, who starred in and produced “24”, the Indian adaptation of the eponymous American show, told IANS: “I personally feel television writing in the west is something else… It is phenomenal, and beyond everything. They are way ahead of us definitely.”

“We have great content in India, but we don’t have great writers who can put them on celluloid or make great TV stories. There is a certain science to it and obviously they have mastered in it. There is a lot to learn from them,” he added.

Ever since the first season of “24” launched in India in 2013, the format owners – FOX Studios – have been keeping a close eye on the overwhelming response that the show has received from Indian viewers. And the makers have packed more action and thrill.

“24: Season 2” will see action and thrill increase two-fold as Jai Singh Rathod (played by Anil) prevents a probable tragedy.

Anil said: “We are trying to raise the bar with the action sequence this season. You need money for action scenes… A certain kind of scale is required, and we are working on almost one-tenth of the budget that they do (west). Compared to India, our scale is huge, but when compared to them (the west), it’s less.”

The action sequences of the show will be directed by Allan Amin.

“24: Season 2” will also feature actors like Sakshi Tanwar, Surveen Chawla, Ashish Vidyarthi, Sikandar Kher and Ritu Shivpuri among others.

“It’s a big responsibility for me. The movie is still in the initial stages. It will be completely new and different from the previous one.

“My father (David Dhawan) and Sajid Nadiadwala have proved themselves, I am the new person coming into the franchise, so I have to prove myself now,” Varun told PTI
