    on June 2, 2020 at 5:08 pm

    Tahira Kashyap, who has already directed two short films, is taking baby steps towards making a feature film, and has already written a few too! While she is keen to direct husband Ayushmann Khurrana, Tahira also says she should have a couple of films to her credit before she gets there. In a recent interview, she opened up on how Ayushmann was a 'senior' to her in the craft of cinema, and had grown immensely as an artist, over time. Referring to the national lockdown, she mentioned that it had brought a halt in everybody's life and nobody knew how the future was going to unfold. However, she also added that she was sticking to her dream of making films. How will the husband-wife equation manifest if they are at work? Tahira says she was fretting whether they'd be able to behave as two professionals or whether there'd be some 'fireworks' on the sets. That's something we would also love to know! Tahira's first directorial venture was Toffee, a 2018 short film which was followed by Pinni, another short starring Neena Gupta that was a part of the anthology Zindagi inShort.

  • EXCLUSIVE: Stree actor Atul Srivastava talks about working with Akshay Kumar in the Covid-19 public service ad
    on June 2, 2020 at 3:20 pm

    The Coronavirus-induced lockdown has been going on since March 24 across the country. The shoots, naturally, too have come to a standstill and that too even before the lockdown was enforced. Hence, there was considerable excitement when it came to light that Akshay Kumar shot for a public service ad about the pandemic last week, on May 25. The pictures of this ad, directed by R Balki, went viral and it also aroused hope among the film and TV fraternity that if this particular shoot can be successfully completed by adhering to social distancing norms, then the government might also allow other shoots to resume as well. Today, the ad in question went online and has received a favourable response. It features Akshay Kumar as Bablu who wears a mask and is on his way to work. At this point, the village sarpanch, essayed by Atul Srivastava, reminds him that working when the pandemic is still going on can be detrimental. Bablu then informs him that he’s confident that if he goes to work and makes sure that he takes all precautions, the chances of him contracting the dreaded disease is minimal. He also points out that even if he gets Coronavirus, it’s not the end of the world since thousands have recovered from it and the government has arranged for sufficient health infrastructure for Covid-19 patients. Few hours after the ad went live, Bollywood Hungama exclusively spoke to Atul Srivastava about his experience of doing this ad and how he bagged this project. He narrates, “I was called by Shruti Mahajan, the casting director. She said, ‘Balki sir chahte hai ki yeh ad aap hi karein’! So I replied, ‘Fir toh humein unki chahat ko poori kar deni chahiye’!” He adds, “I am very fortunate that I got a chance to shoot for this video and to with Akshay Kumar again. Bahut mazaa aaya unke saath kaam kar ke. He was very respectful and we have worked together before, in Toilet – Ek Prem Katha.” Talking about shooting in the post-Covid era and whether he had any apprehensions, Atul Srivastava opens up, “I had no fear and that’s because I knew the team will take care of everything to ensure our safety. Each and every thing was discussed in detail and planned accordingly. The production guys asked me whether I am going to travel in my own car and if yes, they said they’ll send me the permission letter. Even the society where I reside is quiet strict with these matters. Once I was back from the shoot, my car was thoroughly sanitized. The vanity van, provided to me, was also quite clean. There were very few people in the unit and they were all at a distance”. He also adds, “While discussing dialogues, we all wore masks and practiced social distancing. Also, we were in a vast, open space at Kamalistan. The make-up artiste had worn the necessary safety gear. I took off the mask only when my shots were filmed And as you saw in the ad, I was standing at a distance.” Thanks to the extensive planning, the experience was quite smooth. Atul Srivastava reveals, “The shoot got over in no time. We were done by 9:30 am. Akshay Kumar left at 9 while I was left at 9:30 am!” Atul Srivastava has worked in some significant films and has been known for his work in films like Munnabhai MBBS, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Toilet – Ek Prem Katha, serials like Service Wali Bahu and Jeannie Aur Juju. But it was his portrayal of Rajkummar Rao’s father in the 2018 horror comedy blockbuster Stree that made him immensely popular. He was later also seen in films like Batti Gul Meter Chalu, Luka Chuppi, Bharat and Dabangg 3. Also Read: Akshay Kumar turns villager in this public service ad shot during the lockdown

Speaking to Bollywood Hungama ahead of the release of the film last year, Wajid Khan revealed how Salman Khan came up with the idea of ‘Munna Badnaam Hua’ for Dabangg 3. “The idea of ‘Munna Badnaam Hua’ actually came from Salman Bhai,” he said. “One day, he called me and asked me ‘How does this sound?’ At first, I thought he is just joking because Salman Bhai sometimes hits the ball so far that you can’t it catch it.” Sajid said, “He must have deeply thought about it and the first thing he did was inform Wajid Bhai about it saying, ‘Munna Badnaam, kaisa rahega?’” “Then, we discussed and thought that the idea was manageable and we can work on it,” Wajid further said, “Then, after two days of thinking, I gave my reply to Salman Bhai that ‘I think this will work big time because it’s a great idea’. He was so happy hearing that and asked ‘You understood what I meant?’ I responded ‘Yes, I did.’ I think this will be killer song.” Dabangg 3 released in December 2019 and was directed by Prabhu Dheva.

They returned with Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3. In an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama during the release of Dabangg 3, Sajid-Wajid spoke about how challenging the soundtrack of the film was. Sajid-Wajid has composed tracks for Dabangg and Dabangg 2. Talking about working on Dabangg 3, Sajid said, “Dabangg is something which is very special and close to us. We were nervous thinking how the soundtrack in Dabangg 3 will be.” “It was very challenging. Nine years later a film is coming which is a blockbuster and whose soundtrack has been a blockbuster. And original. It's not like we picked up songs from Dabangg and revamped it. One has to challenge themself. And if you notice, we are not those people who give just 2 hit songs. We are not saying that all our songs are hit, but that is what we aim for. Even if we have got better ideas after completing the song, we incorporate it to make it even better. For us every song of ours has to match the level of the entire album,” Wajid added. ALSO READ: An old picture of Wajid Khan enjoying his fan-boy moment with Amitabh Bachchan goes viral
