Sunny was very professional about the kissing scene, he made me so comfortable: Meenakshi Sheshadri

Yesteryears actress, Meenakshi Sheshadri, who’s known for her movies like ‘Hero’, ‘Shahenshah’, ‘Ghayal’, ‘Damini and ‘Ghatak’ among others, got vocal in an interview. The actress spoke about working with superstars like Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt, Sunny Deol and others. 

Going down the memory lane, the actress revealed that in her movie ‘Dacait’, she had a kissing scene with co-star Sunny Deol. “There was a kissing scene in ‘Dacait’ with Sunny, which was suppose to happen before a song. Let me tell you, Sunny was very professional about it, he made me so comfortable during the scene. But that kissing scene was later cut, but the censors,” revealed Meenakshi.

The actress also revealed how she had a fan-moment with Amitabh Bachchan and Sanjay Dutt. “I was very young when I saw Sanju shooting for ‘Rocky’ with Tina Munim. I found him very cute and handsome back then. And when I got the priviledge to work with him in ‘Inaam Dus Hazaar’, I remember telling him about that shoot. And with Amitji, I’ll never forget the aerial shots we took during the song ‘Jaane do jaane do’ in ‘Shahenshah’. Those moments are just special.”

Talking about working with Rajesh Khanna in ‘Awara Baap’, Meenakshi said, “He never came late on the sets of ‘Awara Baap’. He never made me feel like a newcomer and did necessary rehearsals too. And if every he was later, it was because he had scenes only later in the day.”

The Kashmir Files felt like propaganda, vulgar and inappropriate: Israeli director, Nadav Lapid

One film that was much talked about and gathered controversy this year is ‘The Kashmir Files’. And actor Anupam Kher, who played a central role in the film, is applauded for his acting. But, a recent video released from the film festival has gone viral. The video shows IFFI Jury Head, Nadav Lapid making controversial remarks about the film. And it’s confirmed by a team member of IFFI that the Israeli filmmaker made the remark at the closing ceremony.

“I would like to thank the head of the festival and the director of the programming for the cinematic richness of the programme, for its diversity, for its complexity. It was intense. We saw seven films in the debutant competition, and 15 films in the international competition, the front window of the festival. 14 out of them had cinematic qualities, defaults and evoked vivid discussions,” said Nadav Lapid in his speech.

Calling ‘The Kashmir Files’ ‘propaganda’ and ‘vulgar’, he further added, “We all were shocked and disturbed after watching ‘The Kashmir Files’. The film felt like propaganda, vulgar and inappropriate for an artistic competitive section of such a prestigious film festival. I don’t mind sharing my feelings openly in front of you all. In the spirit of this festival, I’m ready to accept a critical discussion, which is important for art and life.”

These statements of Lapid didn’t go well with actor Anupam Kher. He tweeted, “No matter how high the height of the lie is.. It is always small in comparison to the truth.” The actor also attached pictures from ‘The Kashmir Files’ and Steven Spielberg’s film ‘Schindler’s List’ with his tweet.

Ananya is aware of the fact that showbiz is a very tricky business: Chunky Panday

Chunky Panday

Vijay Deverakonda and Ananya Panday starrer ‘Liger’ turned out to be a failure at the box office. It was Vijay’s debut in Bollywood and Ananya’s first bilingual film too. But the film didn’t shape up the way it was expected and even Ananya’s father-actor Chunky Panday agrees to it. 

Talking about Liger’s failure, Chunky expressed, “Any actor gives his or her 100 percent to a film. And after you finish it, you go out of your way to promote the film. And these days promotional activities are a trend where you even go into masses urging fans to watch it. But sometimes things go wrong and we are depressed about it. And it’s okay, that’s an obvious reaction for any actor to feel devastated. Success or failure can happen with any film, an artist has to live with it and just move on. I’m sure my daughter (Ananya) is aware of the fact that showbiz is a very tricky business.” 

Having said that, Chunky feels that one should not ‘overconfident’ or ‘underestimate’ anything in the film industry. “On a film set, almost around 400 people work. And as an actor, we don’t get to see each and every thing as a whole. We are aware of only portions of what’s happening but we don’t know what’s going to be the end result. So, it’s better to take things as they come,” Chunky stated.
