Dangal fame director Nitesh Tiwari’s upcoming film Chhichhore spans 25 years as Sushant Singh Rajput, Shraddha Kapoor and other characters evolve from being college students to middle-aged people. Director Nitesh Tiwari made them undergo behavioural workshop so that they were convincing as 50-year-olds on screen. The key cast members including Varun Sharma and Tahir Raj Bhasin are shown in their early 30s.

Talking about the creative process, Nitesh Tiwari says, “It was important for each actor to age differently basis their psychological transformation. So, we sat down and wrote the journey of each character — what has he done in the last 25 years and how it has impacted him emotionally. For instance, Anni [Rajput’s character] used to be inquisitive and a thinker in his college days. But the circumstances that he faced later on in life made him vulnerable and empathetic. Shraddha’s character becomes more subdued, unlike the chirpy girl she was in college. So, we charted out character graphs and made my actors understand what stage of life they were at.”

Interestingly, Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor undergo seven-day behavioural workshop to play 50-somethings, convincingly in Nitesh Tiwari’s Chhichhore. Before the film went on floors last October, Nitesh Tiwari and his core team of five assistants conducted workshops to help the actors to understand the progression of their characters. The team held three-hour-long sessions for a week with the cast where the focus was on their behavioural changes and body language. Not only the physical aspect side, but director Nitesh Tiwari also wanted them to understand the emotional graph of their respective characters and how that impacts their demeanour.

The movie stars an ensemble cast of Sushant Singh Rajput and Shraddha Kapoor along with Varun Sharma, Prateik Babbar, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Naveen Polishetty, and Nalneesh Neel. For more news and updates from the world of showbiz stay tuned to CineBlitz!

The gorgeous Miss World 2017, Manushi Chhillar, is the leading lady of YRF’s biggest historical film Prithviraj, based on the life and heroism of the fearless and mighty King Prithviraj Chauhan. The YRF big-budget entertainer features superstar Akshay Kumar in and as Prithviraj, and Manushi plays the role of the gorgeous Sanyogita, the love of the king’s life. Manushi has been one of the most sought-after new faces in Bollywood and the 22-year-old stunner is getting the grandest launch that any newcomer has seen in recent times.

Manushi has just wrapped shooting the first song of her Bollywood career and she is ecstatic about the experience of constantly learning on the set. Not many know, Manushi is a trained Kuchipudi dancer and has trained under legendary dancing couple Raja and Radha Reddy and Kaushalya Reddy. Their names are synonymous with Kuchipudi dance and Raja and Radha are regarded solely responsible for bringing it on the cultural map of the world! Both were felicitated by the Government of India with Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan awards!

Manushi reveals that it is her early training in classical dancing that has helped her to confidently perform the song in Prithviraj. “My training in classical dancing when I was a child has definitely helped me for Prithviraj. I’m thankful to my parents for pushing me to take up dancing then because today, when I have to perform these big songs, it wasn’t extremely exasperating and frustrating for me,” says Manushi.

She adds the scale at which the song was shot was definitely overwhelming for the gorgeous girl but her foundation in dancing was strong enough to withstand that pressure. She says, “I was definitely overwhelmed seeing the scale and the dance steps that I had to perform but during my rehearsals I started feeling confident. The old learning all came back to me and I was sure that I could pull through. These dance sequences have taken the life out of me but I think I have managed to deliver. I was happy to that my director and choreographer were happy with my performance. That matters to me the most. I hope audiences appreciate my hard work and bless me because I have given it my best, given it my all.”

Manushi also thanks her gurus for pushing her and building her foundation in dancing. The beauty adds, “I wouldn’t have been able to perform if I didn’t have the learnings that my gurus gave me. All their hard work to better me as a dancer in my childhood, is actually the reason why I enjoyed doing the song in Prithviraj. So, all the credit goes to them for shaping me and moulding me constantly. I can’t thank them enough and I feel fortunate that I had the opportunity to learn from them.”
