"#RHTDM ..Guysss ...been reading rumors about the sequel .. and hoping it's true-cause I have no idea about this," he tweeted.He further went on to joke that both he and her co-actor Dia Mirza are much older now as compared to when the original film was released in 2001 and he wished that the script of the film be "age-appropriate" for them in case of a sequel. "Just praying that someone somewhere has an age-appropriate script for Dia and I -varna ab madhav shastri banna to hathi ko chaddi pehnane ke barabar hai," his tweet further read. 'Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein' was directed by Gautham Menon. With the film, Dia made her Bollywood debut. The movie was a remake of the Tamil film, 'Minnale'. Saif Ali Khan played a special appearance in the film.

Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone

Have you heard? Hrithik Roshan teams up with real heroes

Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone-starrer Fighter is more than six months away from release, but it is already making headlines for involving Indian Air Force (IAF) cadets not only in its cast, but also behind the scenes to lend authenticity to the film. In fact, Hrithik recently shot with the Air Force personnel from Delhi against the backdrop of War Memorial, IAF base, at Chandivali Studios Compound, Mumbai, where the movie’s team filmed emotional scenes for over three days. The star also clicked pictures with the officers wearing their ceremonial IAF uniform, which they will be seen donning in the film too. In addition to the cadets flown in from Delhi’s IAF headquarters, real-life cadets from Dundigal Air Force Academy near Hyderabad were also present for the shoot. Director Siddharth Anand, who is also producing the film, has made sure he has the guidance of real-life officers all along. Army veteran Ramon Chibb holds the position of executive producer, while also being a co-writer for Fighter. Moreover, IAF consultant and ex-Army officer Varlin Panwar is also brought on board as a consultant.  The aerial action thriller is touted as a tribute to the IAF. Sequel plans Over a year since the release of Dasvi (2022), the makers are planning a sequel, titled Baarwi. Believing that the story needs to be taken forward, director Tushar Jalota is reportedly working on the script, the idea of which has been greenlit by producer Dinesh Vijan. Starring Abhishek Bachchan, Yami Gautam and Nimrat Kaur, Dasvi revolved around a politician who clears his 10th standard board exams while serving a prison term. If all goes well, the makers might take the second instalment on floors by the year-end. Whether Abhishek, Nimrat and Yami will reprise their parts as the politician, his wife, and the jail superintendent respectively, will be known in the coming months. A kind gesture Bhuvan Bam has always stepped forward to help those in need. This time around, he has helped Assam-based content creator Roshan to start afresh. Recently, Roshan lost most of his valuables when a fire accident resulted in his house being gutted. While a few people and some NGOs stepped forward to donate some money to Roshan, Bhuvan sent him gadgets like a GoPro 10, a laptop, a microphone and a camera, so he can start making videos again. Roshan shared his happiness with his followers as he unboxed them and expressed his gratitude to Bhuvan for his kind gesture. Hello Hollywood Ishaan Khatter recently shared that he has joined the cast of the Hollywood series, The Perfect Couple. Starring Nicole Kidman, Liev Schreiber and Dakota Fanning, it is an official adaptation of writer Elin Hilderbrand’s novel of the same name. Ishaan called it a unique time for artistic and cultural cross-pollination. Also Read: Have you heard?

Ricky Kej

Ricky Kej: Want next generation to have everything

Days ago, three-time Grammy winner Ricky Kej took to social media to make “one of the biggest announcements of my life”. At the helm of matters at an upcoming performing arts division of Bengaluru’s Chanakya University, Kej intends to use a “holistic interdisciplinary approach” to nurture a new generation of artistes. Education in music, theatre, and filmmaking will be employed for the making of well-rounded artistes in a bid to prepare them for “real world” projects, he says.  Edited excerpts of the interview. How did this association materialise?I’ve dreamt of nurturing and making an institute with [great] infrastructure, and creating artistes who can be successful in today’s world. [A lot of] institutes throughout the world are unable to make [students] ready to go out into the world and become successful. I wanted to ensure that the artistes are not only skilled at their art but also knowledgeable about the ways in which they can apply it. They shouldn’t be delusional. Skilled artistes believe that because they are [skilled], people will listen to them. This is not true. You need to know how to present yourself and make your art palatable. Marketing oneself is important too. When it comes to entrepreneurship, you are trying to sell yourself, and if you can’t showcase that your art is good, you can’t convince people [to consume it].  So, while I cherished this dream, Chanakya University got in touch with me. They wanted [to build] a strong performing arts school. We had lots of discussions in the past year, and I also travelled to other universities and learned a lot. I tried to understand what the alumni [believed was] lacking [in their curriculum], so that I could incorporate it here. There will be three streams — music, theatre, and filmmaking. I was given the freedom to create it from scratch. What will make this effort unique is the strong interdisciplinary approach that will be there between the streams. Whatever you choose to learn, you will still be taught [certain aspects] of the other streams. The pandemic taught us that you need to know multiple things to survive. Filmmakers need to have some knowledge of scoring, and dancers need to know a lot about camera angles and music. So, the focus will be on having an interdisciplinary approach.  Following your multiple wins, music aficionados would want to know what change would you introduce to the way music is taught.The streamlining of music [within a] university is missing. [Students will be taught] how to create a bridge between Indian classical, western classical, and contemporary music. The idea is to teach them to have a holistic view of music creation. There will be a strong emphasis on technology, which is also missing. Technology is used in every art form — whether in the form of larger or smaller set-ups. Also, infrastructure matters. I’ll take an example from my life. I knew from grade two that I wanted to make music for the rest of my life. There were no two ways about it. Convincing my parents was tough, though. My dad is a third-generation doctor and always thought music would be my hobby; something I’d do as an ‘evening thing’ after my job. After a lot of convincing, he said I could do as I desired after I finished a degree in dental surgery. So, I had to go through those five years of training, even though I never took it ahead. If I could take my parents to a university that had good buildings, teachers and faculty members, and one that had tie-ups with other universities, perhaps they would have let me take it up. I would then have had a degree in music instead of dental surgery. Not only would I have not [wasted my time], but I would have also not wasted [another aspiring dentist’s seat].  Over the several years that we’ve communicated with you, during which you’ve also won several Grammy Awards, you’ve moved from discussing music-making for the environment, to business. How do you reflect on these past few years where, perhaps, you may have felt a sense of validation?Absolutely. When it comes to my career, I haven’t followed a traditional path. Being a musician is not like a regular job in which you get a salary, you have funds set aside as your EPF, and it becomes easier to manage your taxes. [Musicians] face difficulty when it comes to finances. A skilled musician needs to make his/her career stable to make music with a clear mind. Financial management, and investment, is something we will also cover. I, in fact, could well be a student there because I still don’t know how to invest. All of my money is in the bank, and I am not able to beat inflation. So, we will teach them how to charge, what industry rates are, and how to manage their money. I am a musician, and that’s all I do. My talk of business stems from my lack of acumen [as a businessman]. I’ve understood the needs of musicians because of all the things that I lacked. I want the next generation to have it all. We will have a strong sustainability division. I believe, artistes have a lot to contribute to society. They must create music for good, and lead by example because they have an audience. Sustainability and social impact will be the crux of our courses. Also Read: India at the Grammys

Manoj Muntashir: Blended today’s language with Tulsidas’s piety

Last week, the Adipurush team unveiled the first song, Jai Shri Ram, from Om Raut’s directorial venture. Lyricist Manoj Muntashir says that while the track serves as the theme of the Prabhas and Kriti Sanon-starrer, Ram Siya Ram — that releases today — is designed as an ode to the lead couple’s love. “Jai Shri Ram was composed by Ajay-Atul first, and then the lyrics were written. When Om and I heard it, we instantly knew we had something divine on our hands. Through it, we wanted to convey the magnificence of Lord Ram. Ram Siya Ram is about the equation and love between Lord Ram and Sita Devi, and also addresses how the Ramayana is an integral part of our lives,” says Muntashir, who has also written the movie’s dialogues. Also starring Saif Ali Khan, Adipurush is based on the epic Ramayana and is one of the most ambitious films of 2023. Muntashir says that given the movie’s subject, he turned to poet Tulsidas for inspiration. “I’ve been heavily inspired by him in the entire album. I’ve tried to mix his thoughts with colloquial words, as the film is releasing in 2023. So, I blended today’s language and culture with the piety of Baba Tulsidas.” He found a perfect collaborator in Raut. The director, he says, is well-versed with the scriptures. “Om has studied the different versions of the Ramayana.” Also Read: Prabhas says he's proud as Adipurush is set to have its world premiere at Tribeca film festival in June

Sonakshi Sinha: She may be President, she’ll still be asked about marriage

She debuted as the love interest of a super cop in Dabangg (2010). Thirteen years on, life has come full circle for Sonakshi Sinha, who now leads from the front as a tough-as-nails cop in Dahaad. Her character Anjali Bhaati, however, couldn’t be more different from the gregarious, can-do-it-all on-screen cops that Dabangg’s success spawned. Sinha’s act instead relies on realism, and challenges the stereotype of macho cops. “The feedback that I have redefined the way cops are portrayed is a huge compliment. You have to wait for the right role to come along. I felt underutilised many times, but then at other times, I also felt I was on the right track,” she smiles, the spotlight firmly on her as the series continues to win praise. Sonakshi Sinha plays a fierce cop in Dahaad, also starring Gulshan Devaiah In Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar’s creation, Sinha’s cop is in pursuit of a serial killer, who targets single women in their 30s belonging to oppressed castes. The Amazon Prime Video offering — also featuring Vijay Varma, Gulshan Devaiah and Sohum Shah — not only depicts the rampant casteism in India, but also makes a commentary against misogyny that measures a woman’s worth in terms of her marital status. The theme’s universality resonated with Sinha. She shares, “Isn’t Anjali every other girl in her workplace or home? No matter what she is achieving, it all boils down to ‘When will she get married?’ Anjali is solving such an important case, but it boils down to, ‘Will she ever get married?’ When working in a man’s world, you have to scream louder to make your voice heard, push through these societal labels and defy attempts to be put into a box. I saw that in her.” Women across classes and castes can identify with the constant scrutiny around marriage. But does a Bollywood star like Sinha ever face such questions? “She could be the President, but she will still get asked about marriage,” emphasises the actor. “[I get this question] all the time! Not from my parents, because they know I am happy with my work. But my mom [Poonam Sinha] has occasionally asked me. That has probably come from the circumstances where people asked her, ‘When will your daughter get married?’ Open the comments section on my social media pages; you will see at least 500 people asking me the same question. No woman is spared, irrespective of the profession,” she laughs. Also Read: "Papa, I fulfilled your dream", Sonakshi Sinha on playing cop in 'Dahaad'

Pankaj Kapur: I don't have any single character that is my favourite

With a career spanning over 30 years and having acted different shades of characters including dark and comic roles, or a common man struggling against the system, actor-director Pankaj Kapur believes he hasn't done enough and wants to explore more. "There are millions of people in the world, I have only played a few of them. And I don't think I have done enough, I would like to explore more. So I look forward to doing many more characters, as long as I am fit and alive. I enjoy playing different kind of people," Kapur told PTI in an interview. Be it the villainy personified Abba ji of 'Maqbool', or the envious shopkeeper Nand Kishore Khatri of 'The Blue Umbrella', for Kapur there are no favourite characters, only the wish to be known for the "sum total" of his work. "All the characters I have played were difficult. There is nothing that comes easy. I don't have any single character that is my favourite because I would like to be known for the sum total of my work and not for an individual character that I might have played," the actor said. The actor, who has worked extensively in theatre as an actor and a director, feels the theatre has an edge over other forms like TV and cinema. However, to him, it is the acting that matters. "I love acting, and I love creativity. For me, all the mediums are enjoyable. It is satisfying in every medium mostly because I am acting, I am performing. But theatre has a slight edge, there is a live audience in front of you. "In theatre, there is a certain discipline that you have to follow, and you have to be experienced to be performing in front of a live audience. It is satisfying to me. That's the only tiny difference. As far as acting is concerned, for me all the mediums where I work as an actor is just the same," he added. Known for his role as the frustrated common man Musaddilal in 'Office Office', or the bonded labourer Budhai Ram of 'Neem ka Ped', the National Award-winning actor rued the lack of characters he could relate with on television. "The kind of television work that is happening right now, I don't relate to it as an actor or as a human being. Therefore I don't find myself a place in television anymore. I love the medium, it's a great medium. But it's a bit stressful because you know how these daily soaps are these days," the veteran actor said. He added that even though it was stressful to shoot 10-12 days in a stretch earlier too, the variety of characters kept him going. "In my time I never did daily soaps, we did weeklies. In that too, I used to find it very stressful to shoot for 10-12 days for those four episodes... But we did it because I got an opportunity to do different kinds of characters through television. "But now the way the stories are, the way the whole thing is, I don't find myself to be a part of that. But in case somebody comes up with something of the kind that might appeal to me as an actor I will surely look at it," he added.  Also Read: When Pankaj Kapur praised son Shahid Kapoor's acting abilities The legendary actor who is best known for delivering stellar performances in movies and TV shows like, 'Chameli Ki Shaadi', 'Maqbool', 'Karamchand', and 'Office Office', among several others, will be celebrating his 69th birthday on May 29, Monday. The Kapur was last seen in Anubhav Sinha's 'Bheed'. Before 'Bheed', Kapur was also seen in 'Jersey', where he shared screen space with his actor-son, Shahid Kapoor.  (With inputs from PTI)

Out now! Here's the teaser of Randeep Hooda's 'Swatantrya Veer Savarkar'

The teaser of the upcoming film 'Swatantrya Veer Savarkar', based on the life of V.D. Savarkar, was unveiled on Sunday on the occasion of freedom fighter and Hindutva ideologue's 140th birth anniversary. The film has been directed by actor Randeep Hooda, who has also co-written the film along with Utkarsh Naithani. Also Read: Why did Ranbir Kapoor's 'Galti Se Mistake' take 6 months to shoot? Find out! The teaser of the potentially contentious film starts with a voice-over from Randeep, saying the struggle for Independence stretched for more than 90 years but it would have been over had the people followed the path of an armed revolution. Few participated in the freedom struggle, the voiceover said; the rest just wanted to gain political mileage in the garb of the fight for independence, it claimed. Launching the film's teaser, Hooda said: "Savarkar led an incredible life, and as I learned more about him while researching my film, I have come to admire him tremendously. So it gives me immense pleasure to share a sneak peek into our film on his 140th birth anniversary." The teaser calls Savarkar "the most wanted Indian by the British", who not just inspired the armed revolution, but also inspired the likes of "Bhagat Singh, Subhash Chandra Bose and Khudiram Bose". Randeep goes on to say in the teaser that Mahatma Gandhi was not wrong, but had he not been stubborn on his principles of non-violence, India would have been independent 35 years earlier. Producer Anand Pandit added: "Swatantrya Veer Savarkar is a very prestigious project for us because of the incredible impact that Savarkar had on our nation's freedom struggle. His story, unfortunately, has not been told to us as a country and we hope our film will complete that lacuna. We present the film's first look and hope the audience comes back asking for more." This historical film, which is slated to be released this year, also marks the directorial debut of Randeep Hooda. He will also be seen on the screen in the title role.
