Will Ratna Pathak be lucky for Khoobsurat actor Fawad Khan?


Veteran actress Ratna Pathak Shah will be reprising her late mother, Dina Pathak’s role in Disney India and Anil Kapoor Film Company’s Khoobsurat, the country’s first official Disney romance ,where she essays the role of Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan ‘s mother, playing the no-nonsense matriarch.


What’s ironic is that the last time Ratna Pathak had a full fledged role as a mother was for Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na ,which made Imran Khan an overnight hit , the question now is will Ratna prove lucky for Fawad Khan ,who makes his big Bollywood debut in Khoobsurat alongside Sonam Kapoor.


Produced by Walt Disney Pictures in association with Anil Kapoor Film Company, Khoobsurat is directed by Shashanka Ghosh and stars Sonam Kapoor & Fawad Khan in the lead. The movie is slated for a September 19th worldwide release.


Krsna Re-creates 80s Magic in Tamanchey


Tamanchey’s latest track, Pyar Mein Dil Pe Maar De Goli is the latest rendition by talented music composer, Krsna. The makers of the gritty love story have managed to buy the rights of R.D. Burman’s classic song which featured Amitbah Bachchan and Zeenat Amaan.


The classic chartbuster which was originally sung by soulful singers, Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle, is now sung by 80’s legend, Bappi Lahiri. The singer said, “I’m the biggest admirer of Pancham and this is a small tribute from me to him.”


Krsna who shot to fame in the 2011 movie Tanu Weds Manu, has successfully managed to recreate R.D. Burman’s magic with a modern touch. He said,“I haven’t rearranged the earlier number, but built my song around its first two lines to introduce and define the lead pair, who are criminals on the run and are drawn to each other. We also used the old keyboard to match the sounds of the hook line. However, we opted for electric and acoustic guitars over the tabla to bring in a world music beat.”


Krsna also praised Bappi Lahiri saying that no other singer would have pulled off the 80’s magic like him.


Presented by Fashion TV films and produced by Suryaveer Singh Bhullar, ‘Tamanchey’ starring Nikhil Dwivedi and Richa Chadda, is slated to release on October 10, 2014.
