Actor-Rajkummar-Rao

Actor Rajkummar Rao, who will be soon collaborating with Priyanka Chopra for the Netflix film “The White Tiger”, has said that he is looking forward to working with her. He also hoped that they will have good time while shooting for the film.

Rajkummar was interacting with the media at the trailer launch of “Made In China” along with his co-actor Mouni Roy, film’s director Mikhil Musale and producer Dinesh Vijan on Wednesday in Mumbai.

“The White Tiger” is an adaptation of Aravind Adiga’s Man Booker Prize-winning novel of the same name.

Sharing his thoughts about the project, Rajkummar said: “I am very excited about that film. It’s a great book and has a beautiful story. I have met (director) Ramin (Bahrani). He is a great guy. I am really looking forward to start working with Priyanka in the film. I think Priyanka is phenomenally talented, so we will have a good time together while shooting the film.”

Bahrani, who will also write the screenplay, is known for films like “Chop Shop”, “99 Homes” and “Fahrenheit 451”.

“Made In China” will see the Rajkummar Rao essay the lead role of a Gujarati businessman named Raghu who becomes successful thanks to ‘jugaad’.

Talking about his character in “Made In China”, Rajkummar said: “Raghu is one of the exciting parts that I have played. I played a Gujarati businessman in ‘Kai Po Che’ but it was a subtle character, but in this film I had a chance to go all out. I stayed in Ahmadabad to prepare for my role. Our film’s director (Mikhil Musale) has been brought up in Gujarat and I feel we were able to create such a beautiful world that I started smelling Gujarat in my film’s script. When people see the film, they will feel that they are with these characters in the film.”

“Made In China” also stars Mouni Roy, Boman Irani, Paresh Rawal and Gajraj Rao. It is directed by Mikhil Musale of the Gujarati award-winning film “Wrong Side Raju” fame. The film is slated for a Diwali release.

Debutante Sharvari will be seen as the new ‘Babli’ in the comedy ‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’. She says it is her big screen debut and has given it her all.

Sharvari said, “I was honoured that YRF could see me as the new Babli in the film. ‘Babli’ is an iconic character in the history of Indian cinema, thanks to Rani ma’am’s incredible work in the first film. I’m a big fan of her and hope that I have done justice to the role.”

The new actress is being presented in an uber-glam avatar in the film in which she has been paired opposite Siddhant Chaturvedi who plays the new ‘Bunty’.

Sharvari will imbibe all the characteristic traits of Babli — highly intelligent, sassy, always up for a great challenge, and most importantly a supremely talented con-woman. The new Babli is tech-savvy, she is a product of the digital boom and thus, supremely skilled and equipped to pull off intricate cons.

“Since my character is based in today’s times, I have tried to play it in my own way and I only hope that Rani ma’am and the audiences will love my effort. This is my big-screen debut and I have given it my all. I can’t wait to see all the responses that my performance will evoke. I’m keeping my fingers crossed,” she added.

‘Bunty Aur Babli 2’ is an out-and-out family entertainer that is set to release on November 19. The film has been directed by Varun V. Sharma.

Nawazuddin-Siddiqui

Actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who has been nominated in the Best Actor category at the International Emmy Awards for the Netflix film ‘Serious Men’, says for that making good content, good people are also needed.

Talking about what’s more important according to him – content of a project or who all are starring in it, Nawazuddin in a conversation with IANS said: “I think both are important.”

“A lot of content is being made but it will not come out and shine till the time the directors, actors and their performance isn’t there.”

He says if the actor or the maker are not good then there is no meaning to the content.

“No matter how good the content is, if the actor or the director is not good then there is no meaning to the content. For making a good thing, good people are needed,” he concluded.
