Director-producer Madhur Bhandarkar has already convinced legendary Lata Mangeshkar to sing for his film Jail. Meanwhile, Neil Nitin Mukesh the lead star of the film also has sung rock version of song Saiyan Ve for the film. Recently he recorded the song in Mumbai along with musician brothers Sharib-Toshi at Krishna Studio on Monday.
Madhur known for making realistic films is set to show jail life with this movie. Neil is playing a prisoner in the film. The other cast of the film include Mugdha Godse, playing love interest of Neil. The film is expected to release on November 6.
Nominations for the year’s IIFA awards are declared and it seems like director Madhur Bhandarkar is quite displeased with it.
Although Madhur has been nominated in the Best Director category for film Fashion, the film didn’t get place in the Best Picture category. However all other directors who nominated for Best Director, their films as well nominated for Best Picture category. So there is a buzz that Madhur is not pleased with the jury decision as he recently quoted, “They’ve done this to me before.”
When asked to the director whether he is miffed with the jury, he replied, “Miffed nahi re baba, par lagta hai na why. I’m forced to think about it when people say, ‘Arre, Madhur got three National Awards, but why has he been deprived of popular awards?’ I’m neither hurt nor amused. I’ve been going to the IIFA since I made Chandni Bar and I accept the jury’s decision. But I don’t know what their parameters are.”
On the other hand Madhur also thinks that as he is nominated for Best Director his film is by default a part of Best Film category. There are also many reasons for Madhur to be content with his work as all his protagonists were always recognized with various awards including National Award.
“From Chandni Bar to Fashion, all my protagonists have been recognised. Tabu has won at the IIFA and Bipasha Basu also bagged an award at the Global Indian Film Awards (GIFA) for Corporate. When they win, it’s like the film won,” said Madhur.
The director whose films were always been a combination of realism and fiction is next coming up with a film called Jail. Actor Neil Nitin Mukesh is playing the lead role in the film. The film will be well promoted at the IIFA awards. And now what Madhur wants more than anything else is “My films get National Awards. I just hope that like my other protagonists, Neil also gets the National Award for Jail. The rest will be a bonus,” hopes the director.
You might be guessing right. As Madhur is known for his realistic films like Page 3, Corporate and Fashion, the director is next planning to do a film about jail. It is also titled as Jail and actor Neil Nitin Mukesh will do the lead in the film.
Madhur’s films always depicted reality and for that he has always done amount of research before its shooting. This time he went along with Neil to Thane jail to catch the glimpses of jail.
One source said, “Madhur took his lead actor Neil Nitin Mukesh, to a Thane jail recently so that the two can observe for themselves what a jail actually looks like and how everyone there behaves. The two didn’t get to interact with the prisoners as there were some rules to be followed.”
Well Madhur, we like your fashion… sorry passion about films.
Everybody in Bollywood is becoming fitness freak and hitting the gyms. Like Shah Rukh developed six pack abs for Om shanti om, Aamir Khan for Ghajini, and John Abraham displayed a different physique in Dostana. Our National Award winner director Madhur Bhandarkar is not behind in that. Looks like the Fashion bug has also bitten him.
Don’t think that the director is planning to make movie called Gym. Madhur confirmed that he not making film on gym, instead it’s his wife who insisted him to hit the gym. He gains the weight during the shoot of Fashion and now he wants to get rid of this extra flab before he begins shooting for Jail.
Not it is Monsoon season and it has started raining all over India and the rain lovers are on a high to get drenched. Sexy Bollywood Actress Kangana Ranaut, who has maintained a very sexy and slim figure who had also lost some more weight while shooting for Madhur Bhandarkar’s film ‘Fashion’, is not worried that she might gain some more weight now, and the reason is really crazy and it is the Rains, the rainy season makes her tempted to eat all kinds of roadside junk food and she says “I Love to have vada pav in the rains. I’m a sucker for road side food.” Well., carry on Kangana, food is the basic thing for which you are working don’t ever compromise on it :P.
Priyanka Chopra has all her fingers in Gold, her new much hyped movie with her boyfriend Harman Baweja ‘Love Story 2050’ is all set to release and all the things seems to be getting just more and more exciting for Priyanka, as the actress is on a signing spree. After Madhur Bhandarkar, Ashutosh Gowariker and Vishal Bharadwaj in Que, she is now approached by Prakash Jha for “Rajniti” whose lead role is already decided which will be played by Ranbir Kapoor, and it will be a movie based on the life of Rajiv Gandhi. Besides, the media got roped in Ranbir Kapoor to play the character of Rajiv Gandhi. And now, Jha has approached Priyanka and she admits that she is keen on working in the movie and is just waiting to sign on the dotted line.
Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra have never been casted together before, so it will be a fresh pairing in Bollywood; and the actress is paired opposite Ranbir, and if Ranbir is playing Rajiv Gandhi then Priyanka’s role will likely to be on Sonia Gandhi. Undoubedly Priyanka Chopra’s Year 2008 is very lucky as she is getting more and more offers from the best directors and already she has ‘Drona’ with Abhishek Bachchan, ‘Dostana’ from Karan Johar and Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Fashion’, the actress will start working with Ashutosh Gowariker on ‘What’s your Rashee’ and she is also excited about being cast opposite Shahid Kapoor Bharadwaj’s ‘Kaminay’. Priyanka and Kareena have always competed each other when it comes to bagging films but it looks like Priyanka Chopra has left Bebo far behind in the race without crash dieting and getting size zero 😛 and it is surely the time for Kareena to brace up and use Bollywood politics to get some good projects as life is all about ‘Rajniti’, in english means Politics.
The 54th National Award saw an undisputed winner in “Lage Raho Munna Bhai”. The movie bagged four awards and was declared the Best Entertainer of the Year. Madhur Bhandarkar received the award for best director for directing ‘Traffic Signal’ and the Indira Gandhi award was presented to ‘Kabul Express’ for being the best movie.
Priyanka Chopra‘s movie ‘Fashion’ which is in talks from long time has been delayed again due to Priyanka. Madhur Bhandarkar the Director of ‘Fashion’ who is well known for his fast track shootings is irritated by this that his movie is taking so much of time. This is the first time that Madhur is working with a top league actress who plays the lead in his movie and It is not a surprise that Priyanka Chopra has her hands full first she shot for Fashion for Madhur then flew off to South Africa to shoot for ‘Drona’ opposite Abhishek Bachchan, Priyanka then got back to shoot for ‘Fashion’ but she has already committed dates to Karan Johar for ‘Dostana’ & she had to leave for an outdoor shoot & will be back only in mid of May. Once Priyanka is back here she is planning to shoot for ‘Fashion’ again in Mumbai and then in Chandigarh.
Priyanka’s busy schedule is hardly pushing Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Fashion’ and obviously he is upset, initially he was planning to release the movie in July 2008 but it is now postponed to August 2008. The Director also shared that he will think twice and thrice before signing any top star like Priyanka in future as it is hard to deal with their ‘TASHAN‘ and ‘FASHION‘.
