‘I’m not in a race’: Actor Vikram

Friday, 19 August 2016 00:00

Actor Vikram, even after a two-decade stint in cinema, continues to be a bag of surprises; his roles and films often defying commercial diktats and popular expectations. Ever greedy for better roles, Vikram has never been in a hurry to sign films. Vikram says, “I’m not in a race, the passion for the craft drives me.” Instead he prefers to invest time in getting into the skin of his role. While in Hyderabad to launch the audio of his Inkokkadu (Iru Mugan in Tamil), he’s confident that his first ever dual role will strike a chord with audiences. Excerpts from an interview:

‘Thani Oruvan’ to be remade in Bengali

Tuesday, 16 August 2016 00:00

Actors Jeet and Prosenjit Chatterjee are reportedly teaming up for yet-untitled Bengali remake of last year’s Tamil blockbuster “Thani Oruvan”.

When he walks into a room full of people, no one can stop gazing at him. He acknowledges with a gracious ‘hello’ and a polite nod and a smile at whoever his eyes meet. Dressed comfortably in semi-casual attire, Hrithik Roshan who was in town for a promotion of a watch brand recollects his days of promoting Krrish in the city. “Ten years is a long time, I must come more often to the city,” says the actor as he fiddles with a watch on the table.

As ‘Udta Punjab’, the movie about the drug problem in Punjab, faces the dreadful situation of having to delete all mentions of ‘Punjab’ — or even reshoot the movie to place it in a ‘fictitious location’ — the censor board would do well to first look at the social reality that the movie aims to underline. It is a reality that the state government too has repeatedly tried to hide at best, deny at worst.

Anurag Kashyap, producer of upcoming film Udta Punjab has finally lost his patience with the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) which is demanding that all references to ‘Punjab’ must be removed from the film, apart from 89 other cuts.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Randeep Hooda and Richa Chaddha-starrer Sarbjit has failed to catch the audience’s fancy. After a dismal Rs 3.69 crore opening on Friday, the movie has managed to earn a measly Rs 13.96 crore in three days since its release.
