NEW DELHI - Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar is itching to go behind the camera once again.
“The director in me is restless and wants to break free… can’t wait to be back on set and yell ‘Action’… my job is truly my best friend,” Johar posted on his Twitter page.
His last directorial venture was “My Name Is Khan” starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol.
Juhi Chawla is still Anu for Onir
Even five years after working with Juhi Chawla in “My Brother… Nikhil”, filmmaker Onir still calls her by her character’s name Anu in the critically acclaimed film.
“Just met Juhi Chawla. Always so warm and concerned. She is just lovely. Growing beautiful with each day. She is still saved as Anu on my phone. Anu was Juhi’s name in ‘My Brother… Nikhil’,” Onir posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.
In the film, Juhi played a sensitive sister to a boy named Nikhil (played by Sanjay Suri), who suffers from HIV-AIDS and is isolated by his parents and the society.
Why does ‘Dabangg’ have double ‘g’?
Considering how superstitious many Bollywood stars have become, it seemed Arbaaz Khan had his first production “Dabangg” spelt with double ‘g’. But he explains otherwise.
“‘Dabangg’ means fearless. We had earlier spelt it as ‘Dabang’ but many people were reading it ‘Da-Bang’. There may be an astrological reason for all you know, but the actual reason is to cause a resonance and stress on ‘g’ so that the word is pronounced correctly,” Arbaaz said.
“Dabangg” features Arbaaz’s elder brother Salman and debutant Sonakshi Sinha. It has been directed by first-timer Abhinav Kashyap.
