Housefull 2 pays tribute to iconic on-screen fights of the 70’s

Standard

The infamous on-screen fights shared between veterans Amitabh Bachchan and Vinod Khanna in the late 70’s is soon to be recreated on screen in Eros International and Sajid Nadiadwala‘s Housefull 2.

The sequel to one of the biggest hits of the year 2010,will see lead actors Akshay Kumar and John Abraham exchange blows in an intense fight sequence executed by Action director Kawee Sirikhanaerut from Thailand action company -Seng Kawee of Rambo and Lara Croft fame.

And if sources are to be believed the famous Amitabh Bachchan-Vinod Khanna fights on-screen have served as reference points to the critical scenes shared by Akshay and John in the masala-entertainer.

Confirms director Sajid Khan “I have designed all the action sequences and used fight scenes between Amitabh and Vinod Khanna in 1970’s films like Amar Akbar Anthony, Parvarish and Khoon Pasina as inspiration”. Adding that “I haven’t used any special effects .Today, even a kid can point out fake stunt sequences. As kids, we’d count the number of punches Amitji and Vinod Khanna would throw so in the film I’ve given John and Akshay an equal number”.

Says producer Sajid Nadiadwala “ It was Sajid Khan’s dream to design such stunt sequences. And since both of us are crazy fans of Manmohan Desai and Prakash mehra, there was no debate when he created those scenes”.

Akshay Kumar turns Chitrangada’s bodyguard!

Standard

Not all the stars love being mobbed by crowd or are comfortable to be surrounded by people. There are actors like Chitrangada Singh, who can’t stand crowd or get cold feet when faced. Something similar happened while promoting the upcoming filmDESI BOYZ when Chitrangada was dazed to come across a huge mass. However, all thanks to Akshay, Chitrangada’s co-star, who came to her rescue and handled the situation with ease.

Akshay recalls the incident, “I remember we were on a promotion tour for DESI BOYZ and while promoting it in one of the cities we were mobbed by the crowd. I think Chitrangada, who comes from parallel cinema background, has never witnessed such huge crowd and power of commercial cinema is altogether different. Chitrangada was taken aback watching a crowd of 350 people around her. She was frozen and couldn’t step ahead. When I looked back for her I found she’s left behind. I immediately rush to her, hold her hand and brought her forward. While Deepika, who was also with us, walked with much confidence because she’s used to it.”

Akshay is highly mesmerized by his leading lady Chitrangada’s beauty, who resembles late Smita Patil.

“Chitrangada is a very beautiful actress. She looks very desi with that dusky complexion and reminds me of late Smita Patil. She is a wonderful actor which she has proven also by winning awards. She’s done lot of parallel cinema but DESI BOYZ is her first commercial film,” ends up Akshay.

John Abraham’s New Role

Standard

BY ARYEMAN RAJ

An interesting turn of events John Abraham announces the launch of his production house- J A (John Abraham) Entertainment Pvt Ltd. The power player is now soon to don the producer’s hat to make cutting edge entertainers with international appeal –

After producing some successful commercials for Haier, Philips Mens range and Nikon Coolpix , the star takes a step further in the creative space and now ventures into commercial films that is akin to the actor’s sensibilities .

Though JA Entertainment has many films in the rolling, the first would be a venture titled “Vicky Donor” ,directed by Shoojit Sircar in association with Rising Suns Films Pvt Ltd. Ironically the actor will not star in the film but may make an appearance in future projects if the script demands it – Confirms John, “It was a conscious decision to not act in my first production because I believe producing a film is about creating quality content that I believe in. Shoojit is a director par excellence, and when he narrated the script to me I wanted to bring this breakthrough commercial cinema to the audience at large.”

“I’m glad John has agreed to take this film ahead as his first venture as producer. We are on the same wavelength, which is most important for any relationship.” adds Shoojit Sircar.

And if that wasn’t all, John being a huge name in the overseas market has also roped in technicians from LA on board the film. A collaboration with acclaimed action trainer turned film-maker JJ Perry may also be on the cards, after having caught the attention of stalwarts like Sylvester Stallone and Gerard Butler.

Says a source “John is leaving no stone unturned in ensuring his home productions have production values on par international standards –He is already in talks with technicians in LA and his film is going to be one to watch out. However, for now details have been kept under wraps”

In the meanwhile after muscling his way into BO success with his last action film Force, John Abraham is raring to go in the space he has newly been crowned -the top most contender. With films like Race 2 and Shootout at Wadala in his kitty,John’s diary only spells action .

But ask the actor if he keeps track of his successful box office figures and quick comes the reply “To be honest, I don’t understand all these number games – whether it’s at the Box office or star wars.”

Making his big Bollywood directorial debut Rohit Dhawan ,son of acclaimed director David Dhawan brings back the hit comic jodi of Bollywood stars Akshay Kumar and John Abraham after 7 long years in Eros International’s Desi Boyz.
The two actors go back a long way after their partnership in Garam Masala –that went on to become the biggest Blockbuster of 2005.
Rohit Dhawan promises to bring the house down with the coming of age comedy that traces the lives of two young lads who refuse to grow up.

Talking about reuniting the Garam Masala duo says Rohit, “Akshay was on board from day one, when I was still developing the story idea. A two-hero movie is never easy to write and it took me almost two years to put this project together. Once I felt I had justified the presence of both the protagonists, I took the script to John who’s been like a buddy since I worked as an assistant director on dad’s film, Hook Ya Crook (2010). He was convinced immediately. “

 

Terming Desi Boyz as a “Dramedy” the film starring Akshay Kumar,John Abraham,Deepika Padukone and Chitrangada Singh breaks the norms of Bollywood comedies and contains no slapstick or over the top comedy
“Both Akshay and John are extremely disciplined and professional. They were always on time and focused through the day, a dream team for any first-time director,“ says Rohit talking about his first experience working with the two stars..
