To Sirs with love…

The longer the barrel time, the finer the wine. The adage seems to spill into the work ethics and belief of the self-confessed film addict Priyadarshan, who has taken it upon himself it seems to ensure that great actors should be seen onscreen as long as possible. Considering it to be a blessing to give work to people who are seniors, director Priyadarshan reflects thoughtfully, “I find that the generation has such a lack of respect for its seniors, I have partly learnt the ethics of cinema from Om Puri and Asrani and it has really been a pleasure working with legends like Nana Patekar and Paresh Rawal.” Going a step further he adds on his experience while working with the senior actors in his upcoming film, Percept Pictures’ Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal to release on 28th September, “Nana Patekar, Om Puri,

Paresh Rawal… they are such actors who bring life into a scene with their give and take… Shakti Kapoor has his own charm and Asrani has put so much energy into his character that one is forced to believe that Shreyas and Asrani are of the same age!” If not add another feather to his cap, this is definitely another proud swirl to Asrani’s Hitler mustache to be talked about in the team of Priyan’s extraordinary gentlemen eh!

Zombies are back to scare you!

The Sony Pictures film Resident Evil-Retribution which releases on 28th September and is fifth installment in the Resident Evil franchise has got something terrifyingly amazing stuffs to offer the audience. The film makers promise to have brought forth elements which will keep the audience on the edge of their seats. The fresh and original ideas to ramp up the action, the adventure and the intensity will cast a spell on the audience.

Resident Evil films have been popular not only for their action but to some extent for the concept of zombies which is evolved with every film. The army of zombies created when the Umbrella Corporation lost control of the T-virus has become larger and even more dangerous as time has passed. The constantly mutating zombies are the strength of the films and the video games. “The slow, shambling zombies from the first film have now evolved into something more terrifying,” says Paul Anderson, director of the film.

“Now there are a lot of different kinds of Undead,” he continues. “The Majini Undead, which were introduced in the last movie, are back. They have huge, tentacular mandibles that come out of their mouths. The Lickers make a return but they’ve evolved, as well. We called them the Uber-Lickers because they’re so big.”

The savior of the mankind, Alice, will now have to give a tough fight to those undeads that maintain motor skills and some degree of intelligence. Motor bikes riding and machine gun shooting zombies will add a whole new level of threat in the film.

The scary elements will create unforgettable sequences for the audience and the 3D release of the film will add more thrill to the whole movie watching experience while the film’s release in Hindi, English, Tamil and Telugu will be a treat for the Indian audience.


‘Bigg Boss 6 can’t escape controversy!’

Having handled the media for maximum celebrities who have participated on Bigg Boss, Bollywood PR guru Dale Bhagwagar is known in media circles as a specialist on the subject.

This week, he has predicted that Bigg Boss 6 won’t be able to escape controversy. “Bigg Boss has always been about drama and eyeballs, and I don’t think that part will change. I guess, I can even bet on it. I will change my name if there are no controversies,” Dale quips as he laughs!

But how can he say for sure? The secret is, the publicist is consulting a couple of names going on the show and he feels it is impossible to avoid controversy while having these people on it.

“Some of these are scandalous names and have lived life on the edge. Going by what these guys and gals have seen in the past seasons, they are already planning, plotting and strategizing to catch the attention of viewers and make the most of their appearance on it,” he reveals.

“They are not scared of being voted out! What they want more is to make a mark and be more popular throughout the country,” he added. “They are not the types who can always be controlled, unless the show is scripted. And we all know that though Housemates are given rules and tasks inside the House, the show is not scripted,” Dale adds.

The publicist also believes that kids and teens will be attracted more towards Bigg Boss this year! “It could be a good strategy to involve gen next so that they are loyal to the Bigg Boss brand in the years to come,” he suggests.

For the record, Dale Bhagwagar has handled the media affairs for some of the most controversial Bollywood celebrities including Shilpa Shetty during Big Brother, and Bigg Boss contestants Rakhi Sawant, Kashmera Shah, Sambhavna Seth, Sherlyn Chopra, Pooja Misrra, Diana Hayden, Shamita Shetty, Vindu Dara Singh, Zulfi Syed, Ashmit Patel and Amar Upadhyay, from time to time.


Time UnRawals with Him around

Known for his genius comic timing, Paresh Rawal is not just an ace smile-maker onscreen, but it seems offline he creates quite a furoren, of sorts as well. While shooting for Priyan’s comic next, Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal produced by Percept Pictures, a source exclaims, “The making of the film was one happy place to be in. Paresh Rawal would keep the crew and unit members in such splits even off-screen that thirty minutes of a power break would seem to cease in a matter of seconds and it was back to work before we realized it.” It takes a happy crew to make a happy film after all. The rest of the joyride ensemble of Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal to hit the marquee on 28th September includes Shreyas, Nana Patekar, Asrani, Madhurima, Om Puri, Shakti Kapoor. We sure look forward to this one!

Swami Nithyananda asks Oprah Winfrey to return to her roots!

When it comes to knowledge and awakening, not many can match up to the self-styled godman Swami Nithyananda.

So when the spiritual leader was recently asked about international talk-show host and American crusader Oprah Winfrey taking digs at Indians eating with hands, Nithyananda shot back saying, “Just like the West has benefited by accepting Yoga from India, they should also begin eating with hands. It’s one of the healthiest practices of time-tested civilizations.”

“Our roots are the same. It is from India that the Rishis went and settled in Africa and created their civilization. Thus, even the African civilizations are known to eat with their hands,” he explained.

Nityananda said, “I invite Oprah to begin eating with her hands and return to her roots… our common roots. I welcome her to taste the joys of natural eating.”

“Indians eating with hands seems to be repeatedly emerging as an issue with Westerners,” remarked the Swami’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar. He pointed out that a few weeks ago; even Miss India UK Deana Uppal was mocked by her fellow contestants in the world’s biggest reality show Big Brother for the same.

Earlier, Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty was attacked by Jade Goody in Celebrity Big Brother over food issues.

Dale, who was also Shilpa’s publicist then, reminisces, “A tiff around the dining table sparked off a huge racial discrimination controversy with Shilpa ultimately winning the show and emerging an icon against racism for the world to look up to.”

Lets see if Oprah Winfrey learns from all this!

“Oh My God”

The very beautiful actress Poonam jhawer of the fame ‘Na Kajre Ki Dhar’ song from the super duper hit Film “Mohra”. Poonam Jhawer, whose short but impactful appearance opposite Suneil Shetty, left the audience thirsting for more! So here is some good news as she makes her impressive entry in Paresh Rawal’s much awaited movie ‘OMG’ ‘Oh My God’. Just like her elegant, soft and yet strong persona, the character Poonam is playing in the movie ‘OMG’ is appropriate according to it.

Poonam will be sharing screen space in the company of popular stars such as Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal, Mithun Chakraborty, Mahesh Manjrekar, Govind Namdeo and others. It is being said that an exclusive look has been particularly designed for Poonam in the film. All those who have seen the trailers of upcoming film OMG “OH MY GOD” are sure to have chuckled at seeing Mithun Chakraborty, Poonam Jhawer and Govind Namdeo playing the stereotypical God men or God women, in Poonam’s case.

The history of the blockbuster film ‘Mohra’ will repeat, as Poonam will be seen once again for the second time with Akshay and Paresh in the same Film. Reportedly the Director of the film Umesh Shukla himself recommended the name of Poonam for the preferred role to the producers of the movie after he saw some stunning pictures of Poonam and thought that she was apt for the look he needed for his character in the film ‘Oh My God’. Director Umesh Shukla is also a big fan of Poonam since ‘Mohra’.

When we managed to track and get in touch with Poonam, we found her quite cheerful and asked her about re-uniting with Akshay and Paresh and also her role in “OMG”, she said , “I cannot disclose the contents but it will surely create a lot of Hungama in the industry and amongst the masses. I play one of the main characters (along with Mithunda, Pareshji, Akshay, Govind Namdeo, Mahesh Manjrekar and others.). About Akshay, as you know I did not have any scenes with him in ‘Mohra”, but it is great to be back with him on the same platform.”

However, what many might not know is that Director Umesh Shukla actually made these actors watch spiritual and devotional TV channels to get inspired and perfect their role on how actually the real spiritual leaders talk and behave in real life. Confirming the news, director Umesh Shukla said that he wanted actors Mithunda, Poonam and Govind to observe the mannerisms of such God men and spiritual talkers so that it could help them with their roles. On the other hand, it is also being said that the roles played by Mithun Chakraborty and Poonam Jhawer are apparently based on the well-known spiritual leaders such as Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Radhe Maa respectively, but nothing is being yet confirmed. According to the sources, respective disciples are quite worried that their idol is not being represented in bad light. However the makers are requesting the followers to wait till the movie releases and then judge.

‘OMG’ is officially based on Paresh Rawal’s critically acclaimed and victorious directorial Gujarati play ‘Kanji Virrudh Kanji’, which was as well remade in Hindi as ‘Krishna Vs Kanhaiya’. Kanji Virrudh Kanji is a tale on the subject of the clash between an atheist and God. Paresh Rawal enacts the role of a person who is a nonbeliever of God and Akshay Kumar himself plays the role of modern-day Lord Krishna.‘OMG’ OH MY GOD! Is a satire on religious superstitions and rituals, and this Film is produced by Grazing Goat Productions, Viacom 18 and S. Spice, the movie is all set to release in theatres on September 28, 2012.
