Button Dabaido Plij is not a publicity stunt amid Delhi elections, says filmmaker Akash Goila

Filmmaker-producer Akash Goila, who is currently tasting the success of his last digital release Bedhab is all set to for his next Button Dabaido Plij which highlights the sincere issue of voting.

While the first look of Button Dabaido Plij is out today, Delhi is witnessing the elections. Was it a publicity stunt by you to launch the poster today? “No, I wasn’t looking to do a publicity stunt by releasing the poster before Delhi state elections and if one feels so then the film is releasing in October which you could probably say is a publicity stunt too because it’s right before Bihar elections,” Akash clears the air.

Talking more about the film, Akash shares, “I chose this topic because I felt that people need to understand what are the aesthetics behind voting and who is playing with their mind and making them vote for the wrong person. I just want to show through this film that how different scenarios of voting work in our country.”

“I am looking to get an interesting cast and well that’s a surprise who I am going to on board for both Button Dabaido Plij and Dum Dum Dumroo 2. I want to keep that as a surprise,” he adds.

Sharing his opinion on the current scenario of our country, Akash says, “I think what is happening in JNU and Shaheen Bagh and how people are making whole Delhi elections a prestige issue, I feel the focus should be on the real issues which are there in Delhi. I feel these issues are to actually pull down other parties and not allowing us to focus on the real problems.”

Talking on the importance of voting, he adds, “I feel more than selecting a party or who should we choose, I feel another aspect is that people are not voting and the first thing which we need to achieve is that every person steps out of there home and vote even if there vote is NOTA they need to go to the polling booth and vote so that atleast if 100% people are voting than we know the winner was chosen with fair percentage. There can’t be people only who are bribed or pressurised to vote decide who will win..”

Ranveer Singh starrer Jayeshbhai Jordaar is definitely one of the most anticipated films of 2020! This YRF entertainer with a social message has been hailed as ‘a miracle script’ by Ranveer and the film’s casting decisions are clearly signalling to audiences that they can expect powerful, entertaining performances in the film. The film had a start to stop shooting schedule and we can now confirm that it’s a complete wrap on the movie’s shooting schedule!

Producer Maneesh Sharma, a home-grown producer at YRF, confirms this information and adds that he feels Jayeshbhai Jordaar will be Ranveer’s best acting performance to date! “We have finished shooting Jayeshbhai Jordaar and we can’t wait to show this special film to the people of our country. Ranveer has given his two hundred percent for the film and it will show when people see the movie. I will stick my neck out to say that Ranveer has delivered his career best performance with Jayeshbhai Jordaar,” says Maneesh, who had introduced Ranveer to Bollywood with his acclaimed directorial Band Baaja Baarat.

Directed by debutant writer-director Divyang, Jayeshbhai Jordaar is a humourous entertainer set in Gujarat and Ranveer will be seen playing the role of a Gujarati man. In the first look that was released by YRF which broke the internet, the superstar was seen to have visibly transformed himself again, shedding many kilos and looked unrecognisable as a Gujarati man. Ranveer as Jayeshbhai is the unlikely hero who will be seen championing the cause of women empowerment in the most entertaining way of story-telling.

Maneesh also showers praise over Shalini Pandey, the Arjun Reddy heroine who is making her Bollywood debut. “Shalini Pandey has given her heart and soul to the film and she has added beautiful textures to her character that will touch people’s hearts. It’s a fitting Bollywood debut for this talented actor to watch out for,” he says.

Maneesh hopes the hilarious script along with stellar acting performances by the cast of the film will make Jayeshbhai Jordaar a must watch movie! “When we set out to make the film, we had visualised the characters, the performances in a certain way and I think along with Ranveer, the entire cast has over-delivered and taken the film to a whole new level. Boman Irani, Ratna Pathak Shah, all the character actors in the film have given their all and we hope to give audiences the perfect entertainer that they would want to see in theatres,” he says.

Emraan Hashmi’s look from Mumbai Saga as the encounter specialist hits the bull’s eye

By Sohel F Fidai :

Sanjay Gupta and Bhushan Kumar’s gangster drama, Mumbai Saga, has created a lot of buzz in the industry. After pulling a one of a kind casting coup and putting together a star cast with likes of John Abraham, Emraan Hashmi, Suniel Shetty, Mahesh Manjeraker, Kajal Aggarwal and Prateik Babbar, the internet erupted with praise for John’s first look as the Gangster in the film.

Now, the makers of the film have released Emraan Hashmi’s first look as the encounter specialist in the film, and this hits the bull’s eye as well. A fan of Sanjay’s narrative styles and the positions of the actors, Emraan revealed he was a little surprised when Sanjay approached him to play a cop and not a gangster. “I rejected a lot of offers which were in the same zone as Shoaib Khan from Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, maybe, I was waiting for Sanjay’s film. But when Sanjay said he is offering me the role of a cop, I was a little taken aback.” he said.

The actor was also a little apprehensive about how the character was written since he wanted to steer clear of a character that was unidimensional and similar to ones already portrayed before in other films. “I was hoping it’s not that and to my surprise, the way the part has been penned and the kind of character I play, he is almost like a gangster. An encounter specialist, he can put a bullet into someone if it accomplishes his motive. He is a badass character in a dog-eats-dog kind of world wherein this guy is the wolf. No one would imagine that I am playing a cop but for this policeman, he is, as I said, like a gangster. Be it by fair or unfair means, he will bring down the guy he is going for. So, it’s kind of home turf but it’s a very entertaining pitch for a character in a pure Sanjay Gupta style, who has created his own brand of cinema. And as an actor, I am always up for doing something different.”

A Gulshan Kumar presentation, Mumbai Saga is produced by T-Series and White Feather Films. The film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Sangiita Ahir and Anuradha Gupta.

Imtiaz Ali spills the beans on working for the third time with Randeep Hooda in Love Aaj Kal

By Sohel F Fidai :

After Highway and Cocktail, Randeep Hooda and Imtiaz Ali have teamed up for Love Aaj Kal. The film revolves around two love stories, set in 1990 and 2020 and how the concept of love has changed over the years. The film stars Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan, and Randeep Hooda plays a pivotal role in the film.

Speaking on working with Randeep, Ali said, “Randeep is a fantastic actor with many great qualities but the most impressive quality he has is that he completely transforms himself for the role he plays,” says Imtiaz, adding that the actor — unlike his rough outing in Highway — will be seen as a “suave, charismatic owner of a chic co-working space”.

He also added, “Working with Randeep in Love Aaj Kal was like working with a new actor. While working with him as Raj, I wasn’t even reminded of the actor that I worked so intimately with in Highway. His passion and dedication to the craft of acting is exemplary and I hope to work with him many times in different roles.”

Randeep Hooda’s part in the film was kept under the wraps as it was a strategic decision to reveal it at a later stage and now the makers are all ready to reveal his character.

According to Ali, Randeep’s character holds and connects the two storylines of the films i.e set in Udaipur in the early ’90s and Modern Day Delhi. When Imtiaz explained Randeep’s character ‘Raj’ he said that he is a modern-day metropolitan man, who stumbles upon a growing relationship between a young couple. When Raj begins to tell his story of the romance between him and Zoe (Sara Ali Khan), it starts to affect the story of Zoe and Veer (Karthik Aaryan), and this is how the two love stories in different eras interact with and influence each other.

Foram Shah Lives in Mumbai, India is an inspiration. At a young age, she has received huge heights of success.  Call it as a fortunate or hard-working, rewards are never served to a dawdled. Being an author was not a blessing she got in her genes but the interest she flourishes from childhood.

“This book was inspired by a childhood trauma, where my hemoglobin went way below the required level and eating beetroots and dates brought it up to an acceptable level again.” Says the Author Foram Shah

This ingenious girl was influenced by every book she read. The first book that she read was of the Famous Five series when she was in the fifth grade. As a typical child of the 90s she was a part of the Harry Potter followers too. She also loves comics.

While speaking more about her own book, she says there is an important message underlining it. And that would be, don’t get too obsessed with body and looks, or these thoughts can easily break you. People will judge you, pass vile comments on your shape and size but never let that mess with your sensibilities or break you down completely so that you have to resort to extreme and unhealthy measures.

Author Jatin Gupta On The Success Of Latest Book Kali Yuga: The Ascension

By Sohel F Fidai :

You really don’t need a big bang release to make it to the bestsellers! If it’s an enticing and inviting book, it will get off the shelves by its own merit! That’s what any upcoming writer can learn from author of the current popular read Kali Yuga: The Ascension, Jatin Gupta! In a candid Q & A session, the author spoke about his recent fiction release, how he switched from non fiction to fiction and lots more, excerpts below:

Despite not having a mega launch event, the book is selling like hot cakes. Did you anticipate this kind of response?

We sold 2500 copies of Kali Yuga in one month and honestly, that’s no small feat. That too when it was a year end release; the time when people are mostly holidaying or busy with families, this book did the numbers. Was I expecting the response? Frankly, Yes, while I was developing this story the book turned out to be nothing like I have ever read before and everytime I read it I got goosebumps. That made me feel we have something special in hand.

The Motion Posters of the book have seen a sensational response. How did this happen?

We wanted to approach the book differently and once it was in the publishing process, we took a bold decision to give a visual dimension to many of the characters and scenes of the book. We used these sketches and converted them into 8 motion posters and the trailer for the book. Interestingly the visuals generated a fantastic traction leading to close to 2 million+ views, 2500 shares and 25000 reactions across Facebook and Instagram combined.

What is Kali Yuga about?

So Kali Yuga: The Ascension as the name suggests is about Kali Yuga. It is a fantastical take imagined on what Kali Yuga holds for us and how will it happen. It is about how 5 out-cast clans guided by the Immortal Guru Parshuram will come together and usher the many changes in store.

The story unlike many other stories is not exactly mythology, the underlying arch is inclined towards fantasy with very few elements from Mythology.
From debuting as an author with Non Fiction to the recent fiction release, was the transition easy? What was the difference in writing both?

Self help and management books are fact based there is very little scope with playing around with the basics of a concept or a premise. This however is not the case with fiction, it is an infinite canvas where the limiting factor is the distance till your imagination can go. Personally, I love writing fiction as I can virtually construct worlds in my mind, how ever I have realized that I can easily switch genres and that is may be because of the professional background I have.
When not writing books, what is it that you do?
I am a management professional presently working with a global gaming company named GVC. Prior to this I was working with an asset management company called Invesco. However predominant part of my professional life was spent with Deloitte in space of management consulting and marketing.

Would we see this book take the shape of a movie?

Honestly, a lot of people in the book circle have told me this is perfect material for a movie, the presentation is such. But I’ve mounted the book on a large scale and the movie too will have to live up to that to do justice to the story. I’d love to see a big shot filmmaker reach out to me for this book though!
