Shilpa-Shetty

While actress Shilpa Shetty Kundra owns a production house, she says she never lets this interfere in her work as an actor.

“When I look at a film, I have always looked at it in totality while knowing where does the project demands me to put in my best. So, I am very clear and comfortable about my space in the whole dynamics,” she told IANS.

However, she adds that being a producer has helped her be more patient.

“I don’t let my producer side or actor side interfere with each other. Having said that, being a producer has been a very enriching experience. I now, know what really goes behind making a project. It has made me more patient,” she says.

Shilpa claims awards don’t matter to her. “As long as you are true to your job and have passion for what you do, it doesn’t really matter. In the end, we are here to tell a story, an inspiring and interesting one, and that is the goal of any project,” she says.

“Once you achieve that, awards and box office figures are complementary,” she adds.

Meanwhile, Shilpa is reprising the role of a judge in the dance reality show Super Dancer-Chapter 4 for the fourth year in a row.

Talking about the same, she says: “It goes without saying that the show is like family to me. It’s been three seasons that we have shot together, there’s this sense of ease that I share with Dada (filmmaker Anurag Basu) and (choreographer) Geeta (Kapoor) along with the crew,” she says.

“I cannot really articulate the emotions that I have for the show. More than anything, I have had the opportunity to witness some of the most talented dancers in the country. I’m truly grateful for the show,” she says.

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.

‘Serious Men’ is based on Manu Joseph’s book of the same name. The film, directed by Sudhir Mishra, is a sharp take on ambition and caste politics, put in perspective in the Indian context.

Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha has announced his next film titled ‘Bheed’, a social drama starring National Award-winning actor Rajkummar Rao.

Anubhav said: “‘Bheed’ is one of those titles that the whole team jumps at the moment you propose it.”

Talking about roping in Rajkummar for the lead role, the director said that for him, “casting was crucial”.

He added: “Raj is a very intriguing actor. He is one of the very few actors who can be so successfully transparent in a story. There always was a keen desire to work with him and I am looking forward to it.”

On working with Sinha, Rajkummar says it is a matter of “great honour and privilege to collaborate with a filmmaker who has such a distinct voice”.

“I have always found myself gravitating towards stories that trigger conversation. Even as an entertainer, I want my work to get people thinking. This is an important subject and the character needs me to stretch myself as an artist, beyond my comfort zone. I can’t wait to start shooting and lose myself in this universe.”

‘Bheed’ is jointly produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Anubhav Sinha’s Benaras Mediaworks.

Bhushan Kumar said: “Anubhav and I have a long standing relationship since Tum Bin. And every outing together is even more exciting than the last one. Thappad is a film I am incredibly proud of and I can’t wait for ‘Bheed’ to kick off. It’s another of Anubhav’s deeply stirring stories and I am so proud to join hands with him yet again on this one.

“Raj is a wonderful actor and I can’t think of anyone better to pull off a film like this.”

The film will be shot across Lucknow. It is expected to go on floors in November as the unit continues their pre-production for the next few weeks.
