Start working than talking about ‘Mr. India’ sequel: Anil Kapoor (Movie Snippets)

Sunday, January 23, 2011

NEW DELHI - Anil Kapoor is irritated with people making castles in the air about the sequel to his 1987 sci-fi hit Mr. India and says rather than talking, we should start the project.

We have all been talking about it and I think more than talking, we should start working on it. There is nothing we can talk about it as of now you know. It is completely blank. We should get going, Anil told IANS.

To be produced by Boney Kapoor, the Part II is going to be shot in 3D. While Anil and Sridevi are to reprise their roles as Arun Verma and Seema Sohni, respectively, rumours are rife that Salman Khan is going to play a negative role in the film.


Bhandarkar wanted to cast Madhuri in ‘Fashion’

Filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar has revealed he wanted to cast dancing diva Madhuri Dixit in Fashion that brought on screen behind-the-scene life of ramp world.

If Madhuriji had not gone to the US, then I would have cast her in ‘Fashion’. I know that she would have done justice to it, Bhandarkar said on the sets of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, a dance reality show where Madhuri is one of the judges.

The beauty about her is that she just slips into her character so well that you forget that she is Madhuri Dixit. I hope to work with her someday, added the national-award winning director.

Bhandarkar was on the show to promote his upcoming movie Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji along with its cast Emraan Hashmi and Ajay Devgn.


Saif excited about first political venture

Romance, drama, action, thriller - he has done all but Saif Ali Khan hasn’t tried a political thriller yet and says Prakash Jha’s “Aarakshan” is his first in the genre.

The actor is starring in Jha’s high voltage political drama that also has Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Prateik Babbar and Manoj Bajpayee.

This is my first time in a political movie. Considering my rest of the films are commercial, it is good to be in something socially relevant, Saif told IANS.

The movie is based on caste-based reservations in government jobs and educational institutions and will see Saif sporting a trimmed Zappa moustache without a goatee for his character.
