In Conversation with Hemant Pandey for his upcoming film ‘Rajula’

Hemant Pandey has played the character of ‘Puran Mama’ in an upcoming film ‘Rajula’ which is based on the famous folk tale of Uttarakhand, Rajula-Malushahi and the film is releasing under PVR Director’s rare cut on 18th October, 2013.

Hailing from the theater background, Hemant Pandey, has proved his talent in the field of acting. The veteran actor, known for his famous role of Pandeyji in TV series ‘Office Office, has also worked in big banner films like Krrish, Ready, Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai, Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein, etc. The most recent film in which he acted is ‘2 Nights in Soul Valley’ which was released in 2012. Hemant is known for playing comedy character role but here he played a negative character.

Let’s have a one and one with the actor in an exclusive interview:

1. First thing first tell us something more about your character ‘Puran Mama’ in an upcoming film ‘Rajula’…

As you know I belong to Pithoragarh, Uttarakhand and when Manoj Chandola came to me with the concept I instantly said, yes. From childhood we grew up hearing the 700 years old folk tale Rajula-Malushahi and I was getting the chance to be part of such an epic so I nodded in positive. The writer and director Nitin Tewari, has given a modern treatment to the story keeping the core of the story intact and my character has an important contribution to the film. This will be revealed when you what the film (smiles).

2. You are well established in Hindi film industry then why you choose to do a regional film like Rajula now…

I like to differ here…Rajula is story of Uttarakhand but this film has compared that era with the modern scenario and showed the struggle of a women in our society brilliantly. And such a film in my opinion shouldn’t be only considered as regional film. Plus we have dialogues in regional language, hindi and English with subtitles.

Now why I choose this film; one reason being this film has originated from Uttarakhand and I belong to this place so automatically your inner soul instigates you to say – yes.

3. How was the total experience of doing this film?

The USP of the film is its narration. The film has shaped brilliantly and gives the true picture of the ‘Land of Gods.’ The shooting of the film was an adventure in itself. The cast and crew where extremely good to work. Karan and Ashima has pulled their character well and they were able to do just to such an epic love story. Uttarakhand is known for its natural beauty and the breath taking sights around the Himalayas, the Bhabhar and the Terai were a life time experience to be shooting around there.

4. Tell us something about your upcoming projects…

Currently my film ‘Prakash Electronics’ is in post production phase and there are few other projects but it’s too earlier to say anything.

Episode 1 , 6th October , Monday @ 9 pm- We begin the story with the introduction of a girl Nandini through a wedding set up where we show her good managerial skills and her strong civic sense. Her boss asks her to go to PRP party office and as she goes, we can see the contrast between the two worlds, one middle class world of Nandini and other Royal Rajput political world of Gayatri Raghuvanshi. Gayatri’s is a strong personality who transforms from an emotional lady in front of her late husband to a determined woman, when she wipes her tears, makes a promise to him that she will make his party PRP win the coming elections through their son Rajvir and walks with a strong face to the party hall with her party advisor Suryamaan and her daughter Akanksha on both her sides to face the big crowd of party workers outside. Episode ends with Nandini leaving the party office after her decoration work is complete and struggling from in between the crowd to get a glimpse of Gayatri Raghuvanshi who she has heard about so much and seen her only on TV. Such is the aura of Gayatri Raghuvanshi.

Episode 2 @9 pm – Abhay enters the party hall and is introduced to the party workers as PRP’s new party advisor. He is a young mind with fresh ideas and he comes up with the strategy to target the common people in order to get votes and win the coming elections. Meanwhile, we portray common people through Nandini’s family and Nandini takes them all, out for lunch to the parathe wali gali and we see nice middle class family moments. In contrast to this simple world, we see the hi-fi world of Rajvir Raghuvanshi, son of Gayatri Raghuvanshi, who has come back to India after a long time and is greeted by media, which he escapes with the help of Abhay, who has come to the airport with a convoy of cars and security. The convoy of cars leave the airport with finicky Rajvir fuss about the unhygienic conditions in India while at the same time Nandini praises her country. Hell breaks loose when Mishraji attempts suicide and they immediately rush him to the hospital in a taxi. The traffic that stops for the convoy of cars is where the taxi gets stuck and Nandini struggles to get the traffic cleared as a man’s life is at stake. This is the first time Abhay and Rajvir see Nandini.

In Episode 3rd – We see Gayatri planning Rajvir’s welcome at the party office, while at the same time, Ambika decorating the house to welcome Rajvir. We show clash of ideologies between Gayatri and her mother-in-law Ambika. Rajvir, who was supposed to go to party office, choses going to the house first and meeting his family, much to the dismay of Gayatri. Meanwhile, we show through Nandini, a common man’s struggle in hospital with a suicide patient and even financially. Nandini brings it to the notice of the higher authorities and gets Mishraji admitted. In contrast to the difficult middle class life of Nandini, we show the struggle of Rajvir to cheer his mother Gayatri with Akanksha’s help. Gayatri takes Rajvir to the terrace and wave at all the party workers who scream with happiness at the sight of Rajvir, the Raghuvanshi scion.

In Episode 4th – Nandini is at the drug store in the hospital with sister Ritu and she offers to help some patient by donating blood. Her mother disapproves, but Nandini has already donated blood by the time her mother reaches. Meanwhile, we show the grand dinner set up of the royal family and we show the whole Raghuvanshi family having dinner together, a happy family reunion. We introduce the whole family for the first time here. After dinner, Rajvir is instructing his servants to unpack his luggage, when Gayatri comes to his room, gives him her father’s Nehru jacket and expresses her wish to see her son as a successful politician just like her father. That is when she gets the shock of her life, when Rajvir tells her for the first time, that he is not interested in politics.

Thursday Freeze – Rajvir tells Gayatri he is not interested in politics.

Bollywood comes to New Zealand

One of Bollywood’s biggest stars Shahrukh Khan was last night greeted by the Prime Minister of New Zealand and Minister of Tourism, the Rt Hon. John Key at an event held in Auckland, New Zealand.

SRK is currently on tour with Limelight Entertainment’s Temptation Reloaded show and arrived in New Zealand on Thursday October 3.

He was last night given a traditional Maori welcome and presented with an official New Zealand Black Caps cricket shirt in recognition of his love of the game, and New Zealand’s co-hosting rights to the Cricket World Cup 2015.

Mr Key welcomed SRK’s interest in New Zealand as a potential film location. New Zealand and India have a co-production agreement and in recent years two Indian productions, “I Hate Luv Storys” and “Players” have been filmed in the country.

Mr Key also invited all Indian cricket fans to travel to New Zealand in January-February 2014 when the Indian national team is touring the country, and again in 2015 for the CWC 2015.

Tourism New Zealand has identified India as an emerging tourism market that offers significant growth potential. The organisation has recently expanded its presence and investment in India.

Currently New Zealand welcomes around 30,000 visitors from India each year; Tourism New Zealand’s target is to increase this to 50,000 by 2016.

The country’s co-hosting of the Cricket World Cup 2015 provides a significant opportunity to promote the 100% Pure New Zealand visitor experiences that could be enjoyed by all cricket fans following the tournament.

Tourism New Zealand has also identified the potential for increasing visitor arrivals from India if Bollywood was to again use the country’s spectacular landscapes as the backdrop to their blockbuster films.

SRK thanked his hosts for the warm New Zealand welcome and talked warmly of his previous visit to the country some 12 years ago. He said his son would be thrilled with the Black Caps shirt, as he is a big fan.

Kangana Ranaut sports her Queen outfit during the dubbing of the film.

National award winning actress Kangana Ranaut who has always walked away with rave reviews for her performances , is a perfectionist at her craft and quite recently took her Queen director Vikas Bahl by surprise as she stepped out of the dub ,only to return in the film’s outfit ,to better get under the skin of her character.

The actress who shot for the film earlier this year, got into her other professional commitments and to maintain the essence of her character ,thought it best to don a similar outfit she sported in the film.

Says director Vikas Bahl, “Kangana has shot for the film a long time ago and was busy with other films. During the dubbing, she realised that she couldn’t get into the skin of her character. So, to get the feel, she went back home to dress up the way she did while shooting for the film”.
