Bollywood Baatein

Compiled by Anoop Kumar

It couldn’t have been a happier start to the new year for Genelia Deshmukh, whose latest offering Ved has set the cash registers ringing. The romantic drama, which also marks the directorial debut of actor-husband Riteish Deshmukh, has become one of the biggest grossers in Marathi cinema in recent years. Genelia, who is also attached as a producer on the film, beams with joy as she says, “Usually, you have to fight for shows, but with Ved, more shows are being added. I feel fortunate that people are taking these characters home. The last time this happened to me was during Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na.”

Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor delivered a career-defining performance in Dibakar Banerjee’s gritty thriller Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar (SAPF). He was unanimously lauded for transforming himself into a Haryanvi cop named Pinky. Arjun also took home some awards for his performance in the film which released during the pandemic.  Arjun, who has again teamed up with Naseeruddin in his upcoming release Kuttey, says, “So, I've already worked with Naseer bhai in Finding Fanny and I had a very nice time, learned so much from him, spent a lot of quality time with him. In Kuttey, him and I share screen space again and on the first day that he came on set, it was a night shoot. And he's somebody who you don't really go out and talk about your work. I'm so much junior to him. It was really, really nice that he came on set, he hugged me and he said I saw Dibakar’s film where you were fantastic in it.For me, just the fact that he had taken out time to see one of my films, whether it was for Dibakar’s sake or my sake or for Parineeti’s sake, just the fact that he saw it, he appreciated it and he was so vocal about it. I don't think somebody like Naseeruddin Shah is very easy to please when it comes to work as an actor. So, I hold this compliment and I hold that moment very close to my heart.”

Amid reports that the CBFC has asked the makers of Shah Rukh Khan-starrer 'Pathaan' to make changes to the shots used in its song 'Besharam Rang', lyricist-writer Javed Akhtar has said filmmakers need to have "trust" in the film certification body that has the authority to decide what will and what will not make the final cut. His comments came a day before the trailer launch of 'Pathaan', a high-octane spy thriller directed by Siddharth Anand. Referring to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) as a "department" under the central government", the 77-year-old industry veteran on Monday said, "It is not for me or you to decide whether the song is right or wrong. We have an agency. There are people from the government and a cross-section of the society watch the film and decide what will be passed and what will not be passed. I think we should have trust in that certification, the cuts that they suggest and what they pass," Akhtar said. According to reports, the CBFC suggested the film's production banner Yash Raj Films to make changes to 'Besharam Rang' and remove all the mentions of the Indian intelligence agency RAW and Prime Minister's Office from the movie, scheduled to be released on January 25.
