Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 film based on the famous Shakespearean play is a film that has grabbed hearts ever since its release. A modern day adaptation of the classic tragedy, the film is a part of Star Movies Select HD’s Book Adaptation Festival which will air on Sunday at 1pm on the premier channel. Set in a contemporary city, the Leonardo DiCapario and Claire Danes starrer brought the Bard’s play into a modern, dreamlike setting, reaching across audiences than any other Shakespeare adaptation had done to that point. With the iconic film gracing our screens this weekend, here is a look at some of the most interesting facts about the movie that makes it a classic. The film runtime is synonymous to the first line of the film. Running for 2hrs, the first line states,” “Is now the two hours’ traffic of our stage.” All the major characters wear costumes at the Capulet masquerade ball that fit their personalities. Such as-Romeo as a knight, Juliet as an angel, Tybalt as a devil, Capulet as an emperor. The role of Juliet played by Claire Dane turned down the role of “Rose” in Titanic (1997) as she had just finished working with Leonardo DiCaprio on Romeo + Juliet (1996). “Immoderately she weeps for Tybalt’s death. Now, sir, her father counts it dangerous that she doth give her sorrow so much sway, and in his wisdom hastes our marriage to stop the inundation of her tears.” Paul Rudd who plays Antman also played a role in the film as Paris. His superhero film Antman will also be premiering on Star Movies on 11th September also.

In a journey spanning only ten months on digital, Y-Films, India’s premiere youth entertainment studio, has been hailed as a trailblazer by both critics and fans.  Over just four super hit series, one short film anthology and one pop music group, Y-Films has amassed over 65 million views, almost 5 Lac  subscribers, a Cannes Grand Prix Glass Lion Award as well as a Webby Award, amongst many other laurels. The youth films wing of Yash Raj Films, Y-Films has always picked content that’s both entertaining and also social relevant. Be it sex education with Sex Chat with Pappu & Papa, LGBT rights with the 6-Pack Band, gender equality with Man’s World or more. It’s now gearing up to go bigger, darker and edgier with a reboot of the cult YRF thriller, Darr, in a contemporary avatar as a five part mini-series, Darr 2.0.
Darr 2.0 will feature the characters of Rahul, Kiran and Sunil from the original but in an entirely new milieu, weaved in a modern, original tale of obsession and fear in the age of cyber stalking and digital crimes. The series holds a mirror to the perilous environment of online privacy invasion and social media harassment that can take a dangerous and disturbing turn, if unchecked.
To demonstrate the risks of voluntarily releasing too much information on the internet, Y-Films asked its fans, followers & subscribers to send across their happy pictures and moments for its next promo but did not reveal any further information. Hundreds of personal and intimate pictures poured in, and some of those pictures are showcased in the first part of the teaser, the second part of which features an unidentified young man discreetly saving them on his computer. Giving the fans a virtual first-hand experience of the safety risk they undertake each time they share their information online. Thus putting the fans at the center of the Darr 2.0 theme that has the tagline: “You have one new follower.” 
The fifth original Y-Films series, Darr 2.0, is directed by Vikas Chandra, a Sundance Screenwriters Lab Fellow and Associate Creative Producer on YRF’s Detective Byomkesh Bakshy and produced by Ashish Patil, Head of Y-Films. It has a story by Nikhil Taneja, with screenplay and dialogues written by Shubham Yogi and Taneja. More details in terms of the cast, crew are yet to be announced but there are some very exciting plans in the pipeline. The five-part series will be out soon on the Y-Films channel. Watch and, of course, share… but at your own risk!

‘रज्जो’ से ज्यादा ‘अकीरा’ मेरे दिल के करीब: सोनाक्षी सिन्हा

बाॅलीवुड की रज्जो, यानी सोनाक्षी सिन्हा बहुत जल्द पर्दे पर किक और पंच मारती नजर आएंगी।  उनकी मोस्ट अवेटेड फिल्म ‘अकीरा’ इस शुक्रवार रिलीज होने वाली है। ए. आर. मुरूगदास के डायरेक्शन से सजी इस फिल्म में सोनाक्षी जबरदस्त एक्शन अवतार में दिखेंगी। तमिल फिल्म ‘मौउना गुरु’ की रीमेक ‘अकीरा’ का ट्रेलर सलमान खान की फिल्म ‘सुल्तान’ के साथ सिनेमाहाल में रिलीज किया गया था, जबकि अब यह फिल्म 2 सितंबर को रिलीज होनेवाली है। ‘अकीरा’ में सोनाक्षी ने एक्शन से भरपूर एक बोल्ड लड़की का किरदार निभाया है। इसमें सोनाक्षी ने एक बागी लड़की का किरदार निभाया है। फिल्म की कहानी इस बागी लड़की के जोधपुर से मुंबई तक के सफर के आसपास घूमती है। कहानी के हिसाब से कॉलेज स्टूडेंट अकीरा (सोनाक्षी सिन्हा) अपनी पढ़ाई करने के लिए मुंबई आती है और पहले गलतफहमी और फिर साजिशों में उलझते हुए उसकी भिड़ंत भ्रष्ट पुलिस ऑफिसर से हो जाती है। अकीरा अन्याय को न सहन करने वालों में है और उसकी इस जिद के चलते उसे अपने परिवार तक की उपेक्षा का शिकार होना पड़ता है। इस वजह से उसकी जिंदगी बदल जाती है। पुलिस उसका एनकाउंटर करना चाहती है और फिर उसे पागलखाने भेज दिया जाता है। सोनाक्षी ने इस फिल्म के लिए बाकायदा मिक्स्ड मार्शल आर्ट की ट्रेनिंग ली है। शायद यही वजह है कि इस ट्रेलर में वे अपनी पिछली फिल्मों की तुलना में ज्यादा फिट नजर आ रही हैं। उनके स्टंट्स फिल्म का प्रमुख आकर्षण होंगे। इस तरह के खतरनाक स्टंट्स सोनाक्षी ने पहली बार की हैं। शायद यही वह वजह है कि जब उनसे पूछा गया कि इस किरदार को बेहतरीन तरीके से निभाने के लिए आपके अलावा और कौन अभिनेत्री हो सकती है, तो उन्होंने साफ कहा कि मुझे नहीं लगता कि उनसे बेहतर कोई इस किरदार को निभा सकती है। सोनाक्षी ने कहा कि डायरेक्टर ए. आर. मुरूगदास को मेरी क्षमता और प्रतिभा पर यकीन था, तभी उन्होंने मुझे यह रोल आॅफर किया और मैं इसके लिए उनका शुक्रगुजार हूं। उन्होंने कभी भी मुझे फिल्म में हीरोइन की तरह पेश नहीं किया, बल्कि एक अभिनेता की तरह उनका हमेशा मेरे एक्शन सीक्वेंस पर ही ध्यान रहता था। हालांकि, मेरे लिए यह बेहद मुश्किल टास्क था, लेकिन ऊपरवाले की दया से मैं वह सब कुछ करने में सफल रही, जो डायरेक्टर मुझसे अपेक्षा रखते थे। इतनी मेहनत करने के कारण ही अकीरा का यह किरदार मेरी पहली फिल्म ‘दबंग’ के रज्जो के किरदार से कहीं ज्यादा मेरे दिल के करीब है।
