Vikramjeet Virk emerges as winner in film ‘Casanovva​’ with superstar Mohanlal

John Abraham of south India! Meet Vikramjeet Virk, the dapper ‘casanovva’, who
started with Ashutosh Gowariker’s “Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey” playing a negative
role pitted against Abhishek Bachchan! The tall strapping dude is not pitted against
Malayalam superstar Mohanlal in the biggest action packed blockbuster release this
january - 21st, ‘Casanova’!

A punjabi by birth, Virk, who made a mark in Zee TV's ‘Shobha Somnath Ki’, is
all set to hit the big screen again with a character similar to that of John Abraham
of ‘Dhoom’. He has already emerged as a favourite of stunt director Allan Amin and
has excelled in action scenes shot in Dubai and Bangkok. In ‘Casanova’, he jumped
from the 30th floor in Bangkok’s hi-rise cat towers ing (even though action director
Allan Amin urged him use to a body double) instead plz write " Allan amin was
very confident that vikramjeet can do this stunt without a body double'

Talking about his role and stunts, Vikramjeet Virk says, “Bagging a role in the
biggest Malayalam film with the greatest Malayalam superstar is special. When I first
met Mohanlal I didn’t realise he was so big but during the making of ‘Casanova’ I
experienced his superstardom and I would do anything to match his flair and style.
When they asked me to jump from the 30th floor, everyone including Mohanlan
felt I would not be able to do the sequence but I did it because I believed in myself.
Mohanlal asked me to take care of my safety before every shot but this inspired me to
risk it all.”

Continuing his saga, Virk says, “I was born to play negative roles and have been
lucky to have castings fall into my lap. instead of play negative roles write
somthing possitive b'coz not only i'm looking to play negative roles but also
possitive roles like doin a main lead movies up north down south and bollywood
if god willing a hollywood" All the roles I have bagged are where people have called
me. I realised this when Ashutosh Gowarikar walked in with a friend, saw me and
immediately offered me the role in ‘Khele Hum Jee Jaan Se’ "plz correct the
sentence it is actualy i walked in with the friend of mine in ashutosh gowariker's
office and it was my friend went for the casting not me i only accompanied him".
I also won the ‘Zee Rishtey Best Villain’ award for my memorable role as Amir
Mehmood Ghaznavi. In fact, I managed the difficult task of coming on a horse on
stage and performing.”

As someone who's worked both on TV and in films, Virk admits the experience is
very different. Working in a costume drama has its share of hazards but Virk reveals,
that "In films one works for few hours in a day, while in television one works for
10 to 12 hours in a day. It's very hectic. The heavy outfit and heavy make-up made
it difficult to shoot, but once I saw the final outcome, it made me feel the effort was
worth it," he says.

Soon Vikramjeet Virk will do a Punjabi film, Yaaran Naal Bahaaran and a
Bollywood film called Katta " i have already completd this punjabi film this

movie soon to be realease in feb 2012 and i'm not doing katta plz dont mention"
about katta" i want to do powerful and challenging roles. plz delete the following
line. I don't want to play soft, chocolate-boy roles. My personality doesn't suit
them," he says.

Vikramjeet Virk started off as a model and had his fair share of struggle before
landing in Bollywood. Virk is very religious and goes to the gurdwara everyday!
His parents have supported him thoroughly. "I cut my hair many years back because
of my work and there are times when I regret it. My father didn't talk to me for a
month, (( plz add " that i convinced my father to be possitive about my decision
as i really want to pursue my career in bollywood")) plz delete this "((but work
comes first.)) plz delete the following line ((So I had to rethink my priority)).
Initially my father had his reservations, but today both my parents are happy for
me," he says.

Vikramjeet Virk grew up in Karnal and studied at the Khalsa Senior Secodary
School & S D Senior secondary school. He used to be a state level kabbaddi player
and has won several awards for athletics while in school. He adores Madhuri Dixit
saying, “The charisma and expressions with which she managed to portray a wide
range of roles is unmatched by any other heroine of today. Add to that her graceful
dancing and you have a truly spectacular star!” His favourite film is ‘Gadar Ek Prem
Katha’ for its timeless story and Sunny Paaji’s 1000 watts performance. He wants to
play the role of Shaheed Bhagat Singh, one of the most heroic freedom fighters that
our country has ever seen.


Virk exercises a lot but doesn’t diet. He eats wholesome food like makkai di roti &
sarson da saag with lots of makkhan. There is nothing quite like a good home-cooked
meal &(( and plz mention "khinchi ki khichdi" make my heart sing! He adds, “
If by a health freak, you mean that I believe in taking care of my physique, then yes
I am a health freak! In fact, ((plz mention i was skinny before as i was in fashion
indusrty but bollywood demands an actor to be robust and therefor i started my
workout rigorously" )) and plz delete the following sentence "((some years ago, I
had even more robust built … almost akin to a body-builder’s! But my trainer
asked me to go light on the weight training as I was beginning to get too bulky.")
) However, with the role of Ghaznavi at hand, I am back to the gym for around 2
hours a day. plz delete the following sentence as "((I am also on a high-protein diet
with no carbs post 7 PM and I start my day with an hour of the south Indian
martial arts form Kalaripayattu for increased agility and strength. That way, I
gain strength and muscular size without looking beefy or body builder-like!”"))

Virk reminisces about his passion for acting, ”I actually had a realization quite early
on in life about my passion for modeling and acting. It was after my 12th class
exams when I went to Delhi to pursue a higher education that I realised that this was
something that I wanted to make a career out of. One fine day, I shot my portfolio and
auditioned for the Lakme India Fashion Week. I cleared the audition and on July 19,
2003, on the day of my birthday, I walked the ramp for the first time. That was the
best moment in my life, and since then, the journey has been amazing.”

Perfectionist Piyush Sahdev to play tough in Shapath

 ‎Handsome hunk Piyush Sahdev will soon be seen in Life Ok's upcoming show 'Hum ne li hai... Shapath', a story of tough cops against the flawed system with thrilling and contemporary police cases weaved in... 
In the show produced by Fireworks, perfectionist Piyush is playing the lead character Abhigyan, the son of a big business tycoon, who chooses to work for his Nation, rather than stay with his father in a luxurious set-up. The show has two more characters - inspector Gautam, played by Hasan Zaidi (Khote Sikke) to be introduced in 6th episode, and Shikha, social worker, played by Madura Nayak (Pyar Ki Ek Kahani). The trio teams up to solve murder mysteries and every murder case goes on for around 3-4 weeks. 
In fact, the well toned Piyush recently made headlines with his dare-to-bare act. He loves to show off his body because he is quite crazy about fitness; in love with his gym and works out regularly. He also practices martial arts such as kempo-karate and naan chaku. He has been doing all his stunts himself without a duplicate in ‘...Shapath’ and earlier show ‘Geet’. In fact, as a preparation for the show ‘...Shapath’, he lost 7 kgs for this role. He has been watching many police themed films and has also been meeting the cops to understand their mannerisms. 
Talking about his lead role, an intense Piyush says, “I love action roles and Shapath will elevate me to the next frontier of my career. The hard-hitting show is a dream come true for a fitness fanatic like me. My first promo clearly portrays various facets of my personality and I have already got rave reviews for the same.”

Piyush’s love life is also making waves. He is in a committed relationship with actress Akangsha Rawat (lead of ‘Solah Singaarr’ and ‘Palampur Express’) since the last 6 months. He says, “I think my life has completely changed with her. Akangsha is also a mind therapist/karmic healer. I couldn’t take my eyes off her the first time I saw her in an audition as I found her to be very beautiful. As people say that it's all destiny and we met again through a common friend, Vaibhavi and finally started dating.”
The multi-facetted Piyush has done theatre for 5 years and on TV, he has acted in ‘Geet’, ‘Pratigya’, ‘Ghar Ek Sapna’ and ‘Meet mila de rabba’ as a lead (Sardarji) as well as the dance show ‘Nach Le Ve’. He has played the role of Sharad in Ghar Ek Sapna and Aman Mathur in star plus serial, Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya; and was also seen in Zee's Har Ghar Kuch Kehta Hai. Piyush Sahdev aka Kulwant Singh of Meet Mila De Rabba is an extremely spiritual person. The actor who played the role of a Sardar helped him gather many fans and now his fans want to know more about him. He also sings very well and dreams of playback singing for himself. He also plays the harmonium. Actress Meher Vij is his sister and actor Manav Vij is his jija (they have done many Balaji shows).
Piyush is very sensitive and emotional and feels that Life is… beautiful. He is also conservative and feels that marriage is what happens once in a lifetime and those who get married are the luckiest and happiest people on this earth. His first crush was in 8th Std. Piyush feels that his ideal woman should be homely, who should understand him and loves me a lot. He loves old Hindi songs. He wants to control his explosive anger. He loves actors Aamir Khan, Tom Hanks and Kajol. He loves seeing Tom and Jerry cartoons. He is a very spiritual person so he believes whatever religious books say. His advice to youngsters - Respect your elders. Don’t waste your time by getting into wrong things. Improve the quality of your life by doing good things.

Shudra- Intreview of the director Sanjiv Jaiswal

 SanjivJaiswal, the Directorand Producer of Shudra-The Rising had earlier produced Fareb with star cast of ShipaShetty, Manoj Bajpai and Shamita Shetty. Fareb was directed by Deepak Tijori. Hissecond film is raising the age old issue of castism where he has also turned todirection.  
Please tell us about your movie Shudra-The rising. What made youcome up with this concept?
Sanjiv Jaiswal : It is completely based against Casteism.Hindu’s have four divisions - Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaish & Shudra. Inreality Casteism is like poison for any society. Through my film Shudra I want to show and tell peoplewhat happened in the social history of india…. That it is just our past. I wantthem to change their mindset and come up with new vision towards each other forbetter progression of the society and the country. Everybody thinks their castto be more superior as compared to others, which is not correct. Big crusadors likeGeorge Washington, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther, Baba Bhimrao Ambedkar havealways fought against this system of Casteism.

Big crusadors likeGeorge Washington, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther, Baba Bhimrao Ambedkar havealways fought against this system of Casteism.
In UP &Punjab, screening of Aarakshan was banned unless few sceneswere edited. Do you think Shudra may face similar problem?
Sanjiv Jaiswal : Their subject was different, wheretheir promotion had given the impression that it is anti reservation.  May be because of that there were bans againstthem in three states. Mine is a social issue and its depicting history which isvery much true. So I don’t think any NGO or political party or any communitywould impede me.  
Promos are giving impression of a Hollywood film. Is it true thisis the first film of cinematographer Pratik Deora as well?
Sanjiv Jaiswal : Yes, in fact the USP of Shudra is my entire cast and crew is completelynew and fresh. From director, writer, actors, music directors Cameramanetc….its their first project with their fresh and more innovative ideas. 
Where did you source your artistes from? Was there any workshopconducted train them?
Sanjiv Jaiswal : They are all theaters artist from Mumbai because I neededperformers and not actors. For me my characters and my subject were moreimportant. We did a 20 day workshop but it was most unusual. Instead of takinga workshop trainer, I decided to hold a very practical activity for them. Ipicked na entire village of Harijans along with their animals, home businessand kids and relocated them in my shooting location. I left my actors in themiddle of these people and told them to live and learn their way of life. For20 days they lived, ate & slept with real villagers like them and by thetime we started the shoot, it was impossible to tell my actors from thevillagers. Whenever we needed any our artiste for a particular shot, we had toreally search for them amongst the crowd.  
Is shudra samaaj supporting you from outside?
Sanjiv Jaiswal : Yes, few days back I was called inPune by Shudra samaaj people. They also shared with me lots of fact. Theyvalued my work and gifted me one of their book which had entire details about theirpast and samaaj. Each one of them was well studied and they appreciated myefforts to bring awareness about the realities of their life.

I’m too real for Bigg Boss, Survivor is more my style: Abhinav Shukla

It’sa jungle out there, a dog-eat-dog world. And it takes some genuinesurvivor skills to outsmart the predatory tactics of competing teamsand even one’s own team members. For Catan tribe’s AbhinavShukla, surviving great odds and tough situations may not seem like agreat challenge, as he firmly believes in his own instincts and self.
Althoughhis tribe (team) performed miserably at the ‘Rewards Challenge’Abhinav is not one to give up so easily. Being an engineer, andhaving often taken the “long and difficult route” in life, he isno stranger to challenges. “I like living on the edge” he says.In the 22nd Jan episode he proved not just his engineeringskills but also the shrewdness to knock out a possible threat: KaranPatel whom he voted out.

Itwas at raft-making where Abhinav showed his true mettle. With defthands he strung together bamboo sticks and tied efficient knots thatmade the raft truly sea-worthy. And he also broke an internationalrecord while doing so. The best of raft-makers anywhere in the worldrequire a minimum of 3 hours for the task, whereas Abhinav did it in2 hours flat!
 Amazedtribe mates asked him where he picked up the skills. “It’s simpleand basic engineering principles” Abhinav said. Well, hisraft-making skills and the ability to light a fire without amatchstick or lighter may get him past obstacles and dangers in aforest. But will he be able to survive the wily ways of team-matesand the challenges that lie ahead? More pointedly, we asked him if hewould survive a show like Bigg Boss. He laughs and say
 “Mighthave to think twice as I’m too real for thatkind of reality show. A few episodes of Bigg Boss and I’d go for atoss ! In the jungle, I can kill and eat a poisonous snake tosurvive. But on Bigg Boss I’d be chewed alive by those man-eaters.Grrrrrowwwl!” So Abhinav can joke too!
Weprobe further “Would you refuse if the Bigg Boss people inviteyou?”
 “Well,to be frank I like natural beauty. Not artificial. I never makefriends easily. And when I do, I’m faithful, for life. So you see Iam certainly NOT the kind of person people want to see on BiggBoss. Besides, dirty politics is not my cup of tea. I follow asimple funda in life. Jahaanbaaton say baat nahin bantee, vahaan laaton say baat karoonga.So I amafraid I might get physical too. (laughs)
  Wehave to agree with Abhinav’s friends who also like his honesty anddirectness.
 Thepromising young actor has already shown his acting prowess in EkHazaaron Mein Meri Behnaa Hai and Geet. He is lately looking for abigger break. His brooding intensity does indicate serious talent andpotential as an actor but that is something only time will reveal.For the time being, he is happy countering challenges on SI. He wouldalso love to be on shows like Fear Factor and Khatron Kay Khiladiwhere he just might go on to prove he’s India’s answer to BearGrylls.

Demi quits film after drugs disaster

Actress Demi Moore seems to be in the throes of a breakdown.
Demi Moore has cancelled an appearance in the movie "Lovelace," reports gossip site TMZ.
Moore was rushed to hospital on Monday night for a substance abuse problem. She is currently receiving professional help at a treatment facility, according to the site.
After arriving at the star’s LA home, paramedics assessed her for half an hour, and took her to a local hospital, say law enforcement officials.
Moore has been placed in a facility to "seek further professional assistance" to be treated for substance abuse, reports TMZ.
"Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health. She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends," says the actress’s representative.

Race to grab rights of Paiya gets hotter with the Khans, Akshay Kumar now in fray

All three are now at a crucial stage of their illustrious careers in Bollywood. Two have already tried and tested the formula of remaking super hit action movies from the south. One, now known more for his out-and-out comedy flicks, is looking for something different. And the one film that seems to have grabbed the close attention of the three megastars – Aamir Khan, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar - is the Tamil super hit film, Paiyaa, whose rights are now up for grabs.  
While both Aamir and Salman have shown Bollywood how well made south Indian remakes can rake in fortunes, their films like Ghajini, Bodyguard and Wanted have mostly been heavily action-oriented. Akshay Kumar, who is set to star in Donu Seenu, Ravi Teja’s mass masala Telugu movie remake, has not really tested this formula of success so far.  
Paiya, which is a romantic movie, could go a long way in infusing a refreshing change in the careers of the three super stars. For the Khans, it could prove to be a break from hard-hitting action, reviving the magic of their earlier, romantic image. For Akshay Kumar, Paiya could be a blessing after the relentless spate of comedies, marking a major watershed in his long career. There is a buzz in Bollywood that the three stars are seriously considering the Tamil blockbuster as their next big blockbuster. However, it remains to be seen who actually gets the potential pot of gold.    
Written and directed by N. Linguswamy, Paiya is about the interesting journey of a young couple. A beautiful, young woman, an IT employee, asks a jobless, happy-go-lucky man, to escort her from Bangalore to Mumbai. The man, incidentally is in love with her. The film revolves around the various obstacles that the couple has to face during their trip bitter-sweet experiences and the manner in which they bond together during the journey. The film stars Milind Soman Karthik Sivakumar, Tamannaah Bhatia, Sonia Deepti and Jagan. 
Paiya was released in 2010 and stunned the south Indian industry with its performance at the box-office. The film raked in a whopping Rs. 70,99,863 in the opening weekend across Chennai in the very first weekend. Not only that. It sprang an even bigger surprise in far-away United Kingdom by grossing £21,021 in the opening weekend in just six screens. In Malaysia where opened across 34 screens, it garnered $349,368 after the second week. Internationally, Paiyaa grossed Rs. 35 crores worldwide, collecting a net distributor share of Rs. 30 crores from the Tamil and 5 crores from the Telugu version.  
The film had won several awards for its beautiful music, including the Mirchi Listeners’ Choice – Best Song of the Year and Mirchi Listeners’ Choice – Best Album of the Year. Its leading actors Karthi and Tamannah Bhatia were also nominated for best actor and actress respectively in the Filmfare South Awards – credentials impressive enough to draw the biggest of the Bollywood biggies.

War Horse bags Six Oscar Nomination​s


Oscar Winning director, Steven Spielberg is back again with an emotional epic on a classic scale in DreamWorks & Reliance Entertainment’s War Horse which will release in India on 10th February.
When the nominations for the 84th Annual Academy Awards were announced on Tuesday, War Horse bagged six nominations.  Oscar Nomination for the Best Picture - Steven Spielberg & Kathleen Kennedy, Cinematography- Janusz Kaminski,  Art Direction- Rick Carter (Production design) and Lee Sandales (Set Decoration),  Music - Original Score - John Williams,  Sound Editing- Richard Hymns and Gary Rydstrom, Sound Mixing-  Gary Rydstrom, Andy Nelson, Tom Johnson and Stuart Wilson.
 After releasing in the US on 25th December to extremely good reviews from critics and audience alike, the film opened in the UK on 13th January. The film even won the Best Cinematography Award at the recently concluded 17th Critics Choice Awards.
War Horse, a story of friendship and war, first became a well-loved family book, then an innovative stage play that took audiences by storm and now it sees another incarnation in its most visceral medium yet.  War Horse is set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War. It begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert played by Jeremy Irvine as he tames and trains Joey. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets — British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter — before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man’s Land.
War Horse says a lot about courage; the courage of this boy and what he endures and what he overcomes to achieve what he needs and not just for himself but also for his best friend, his horse Joey.  It’s also about the courage and the tenacity of this extraordinary animal. The theme of courage kept coming back and back from the play, from Michael Morpurgo’s book and from Lee Hall and Richard Curtis’ screenplay. That was the underlying subliminal theme that I think informs every frame of War Horse”, says the director.
Steven Spielberg did not want to sign a known face for the role of Albert, “I auditioned hundreds boys for the role of Albert and right in the middle of the search process, we found Jeremy. And then we moved on to see if anybody else could match him. And several months later, we came back to Jeremy, realizing that he was the best person for the part.”
“What’s fantastic about Steven is that he gives you enough space to work and have your own margins of experimentation on things.  Everything that Steven Spielberg does has a realism to it. The most incredible thing about working with Steven Spielberg is that you get the best people in the world working with you. There’s no doing things by halves. Everything is done the best way it can possibly be done,” says Jeremy Irvine who sure was elated to have landed the role of Albert in the film.
The First World War is experienced through the journey of this horse—an odyssey of joy and sorrow, passionate friendship and high adventure. War Horse an epic adventure for audiences of all ages releases in India on February 10th 2012.

Kolaveri Di is now ‘Raanjhnaa​’!

B-town’s latest news is that Tanu Weds Manu director Aanand L Rai has signed Tamil actor Dhanush for his upcoming film Raanjhnaa. The director has been quoted saying that, “For the past six months, I’ve been looking for a simple boy to play the lead in Raanjhnaa. My requirement was a man who could look vulnerable on screen. When I saw Dhanush in the Tamil film Aadukalam (for which he won the National award), I liked him immediately. He looks very ordinary and honest, and that was the demand of the character.”
Apparently Dhanush is not well versed with Hindi, but this won’t pose as a barrier for him working in Bollywood! The actor/singer is keen to explore this part of the industry and learn the local language and culture.
When quizzed about the movie, the director adds, “The film is an intense love story. Just like my film Tanu Weds Manu, the film and its characters will take you to Delhi, Punjab, Chennai, etc.”
Dhanush too is very excited about the project. News is that the director had approached him for the movie before Kolaberi Di happened. “It’s a big deal to get a launch like this at the beginning of my career here. Aanand’s script is different from regular cinema; it’s one of those ‘made to make a difference’ kind of films”, quips the actor.
The actor who recently visited Banaras with director Anand Rai was amazed with the culture and the traditions in a different part of the country. Buzz is that he is even planning to hire a coach to learn Hindi. He is convinced that by the time the shoot gets over, he will be able to communicate fluently in the local language.
