‘Bellbottom’ Brings Bollywood Back to Business

As the lockdown in the country and across the globe is easing, the filmmakers of the high-end espionage film ‘Bellbottom’ are ready to take their script on floors. The much-anticipated thriller starring Akshay Kumar, Vaani Kapoor, Huma Qureshi and Lara Dutta is the first film to commence shooting after the long lockdown. The schedule of the movie begins one month from now, the entire team of ‘Bellbottom’ will be heading to the UK for the same.

Over the past few months the film industry has come to a halt, whether in India or outside. As parts of the world are showing signs of recovery from the virus, the need of the hour is to adapt and evolve with the times.

Keeping the new normal in mind, a thorough precautionary plan for the shoot has been laid down by the filmmakers. The film’s shoot not only gets the artists back on the sets but also all the people involved in the process of film-making. ‘Bellbottom’ resuming work is a step forward to normalise the current working situation in Bollywood and indeed bringing the industry back to business.

Sharing his thoughts on starting the shoot for the film, actor Akshay Kumar says, “We are glad to be able to start shooting for Bellbottom after the long lockdown. The team has made special plans and taken precautions keeping the current situation in mind. I am looking forward to the industry to begin doing what it does best and entertain the audiences again.”

Producer Jackky Bhagnani adds, “There are a number of people dependent on the film industry starting up again. We wanted Bellbottom to take shape the best way possible, but at the same time keeping the safety of the crew as our top priority. All our activities will be minutely monitored to make sure no one is at risk and we’re following all the issued guidelines. The cast and crew are on board and offering full cooperation. It’s time!”

Director Ranjit M Tewari who too is eagerly waiting to start the shoot shares, “I am immensely thankful and happy to start filming. Even during such trying times, we strive to give our best and make this film a success.”

Sony Entertainment Television’s India’s Best Dancer is currently the most popular talent show on Indian television. This weekend, the show will extend a warm welcome to actors Rajkummar Rao, Nushrratt Bharuccha, and Nora Fatehi as the guests. Nushrratt and Rajkummar, who will share interesting anecdotes about their journey, were thoroughly enthralled with all the contestants’ performances. Both the actors raised the bar a notch higher by dancing with the contestants wholeheartedly!

After contestant Mahammad Akib’s and choreographer Paul’s act on the song ‘Mujhe Chod Do Mere Haal Pe’ which shed light on the concept of deforestation, Rajkummar Rao appreciated Akib’s performance and further spilled the beans on his struggles and challenges before he carved a niche for himself in the industry. Rajkummar Rao is applauded by the audience for his understanding of the craft and nuanced performances in multiple films.

However, the viewers may be unaware of his tryst with dancing. While everyone knows that Rajkummar is a swell actor, not many know about his passion for dancing and that he is a fantastic dancer as well. That’s when Contestant Shweta Warrier requested the actor to do an impromptu jig with all the female contestants, on the song ‘Milegi Milegi’. The actor agreed and joined everyone on stage. The judges were impressed with his moves and appreciated his dance skills.

Moreover, not many know that Rajkummar had in fact auditioned for Sony TV’s popular show Boogie Woogie. However, he was rejected in the audition phase. Rajkummar said, “Many years ago, when I was in class 11, I had come to Mumbai to audition for Boogie Woogie with my younger brother. But, I got rejected back then. It feels great to be here today, and witness such amazing performances. It was nice of the judges to give me 30 points for my performance with the contestants here.”

Malaika Arora said, “Raj is a closet dancer, but not many know that he is a fabulous dancer and I was fortunate to dance with him in a film. We did a song in the movie ‘Dolly ki Doli’, we came on the set and were rehearsing, Raj was around and all quiet. But the moment the song started playing, he went all out with his dance.” Listening to the conversation, Nushrratt further added, “You should watch him at parties, if you play 90s Bollywood music, he dances really well to these songs.” Later, Malaika Arora also shook a leg with Rajkummar on the track ‘Nazar na lag jaaye’.

Actor Himansh Kohli is in a happy place right now. Not only did he and his family emerge victorious against the COVID-19 battle, but he has also gifted himself an early birthday (3rd November)  gift. The actor is now a happy owner of the sports car Porsche.

Talking about buying this car ahead of his birthday, Himansh says, “My birthday is approaching, and 2020 so far has been a dull year for everybody, so I thought of cheering myself up and giving this gift from me to me. Getting a sports car, a mean machine like Porsche has always been on my bucket list, and it took a considerable amount of time to attain it. But, I’m happy the day finally came when I can drive around in my sports car.”

The actor, who has worked in various music videos and films, has been planning to buy a new car for a long time. “I had been thinking about getting a new car, especially after two of my brand new SUVs were stolen one after another from outside the house in Delhi. The first one was stolen in 2015, and the second thievery happened in 2019, within 3-4 months of purchase. It’s like my bad fortune turned up after a few moments of good luck,” he says.

Himansh’s Porsche stands apart with its unique blue colour. Any reason behind that? “I believe I have an eternal connection with this striking color. Most of my wardrobe, personal belongings, and even my favorite song (Aaj Blue Hai Pani Pani) are blue,” he says.

Calling himself a simple person, he has already listed down the qualities he wants in his dream car. “I’m a simple person with an exquisite taste, so if you’re talking about my dream car, it needs to have an amazing coffee machine, space for my pet(s), and a mind-blowing sound system apart from all the regular features that cars have. I do consider things like torque, ground clearance, boot space,” Himansh shares.

Bhumi Pednekar is a self-made star who has catapulted herself to stardom through her body of work. Bhumi won hearts with her last release Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitaare and she will now be seen in Durgavati, a project she is supremely excited about. For Bhumi, this is the first film that she is headlining in her career and she is extremely grateful for the opportunity. Durgavati is being produced by Akshay Kumar, her co-star from the blockbuster Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.

“It is the first time that I am helming a film alone and it is exciting as well as nerve-wrecking. There is a lot of responsibility on me. I have been very fortunate as an artiste and I’m proud of my journey in cinema so far. So, I’m grateful for this opportunity. I have always had a co-star to share the responsibility with, now I am helming this film. I am really excited to see how people react to this. I have never looked like this, people have never seen me in this avatar,” informs Bhumi.

Bhumi is taking the hit franchise of Badhaai Ho forward as she is set to start shooting Badhaai Do. The first film of the franchise featured Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana and he delivered a blockbuster. Ayushmann was also voted as one of the most influential people in the world by TIME magazine and Bhumi has had a hattrick of hits like Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Shubh Mangal Saavdhan and Bala with her favorite co-star.

Bhumi says, “He was my first hero and out of the 8 films I have done in 4 years, three have been with him! He is a very dear friend and I am very fond of him. I feel very happy when I see he has reached and he really deserves it because he has had such a long journey. I think the forte that Ayushmann and I have is a certain kind of cinema that we both kind of create when we get together.

She adds, “The three films that we have done have really been true to their genre. I feel very lucky because we have created a space with each other that is very rare. I love collaborating with him, we are very likeminded, our value system is very similar. Till date it has been a 100% success rate and I really hope that it stays like that like in the future as well.”

Bhumi says she is extremely satisfied doing the meaningful cinema that she has been a part of. “I feel very fortunate that I’ve never been on a film set and felt like why am I here? I don’t want to be unhappy doing the work that I do and touch wood that has never happened. I have never been a part of the film where I felt it’s not correct,” says the versatile actress whose box office streak has made her a producer’s favourite.

“I feel as an actor my profession comes with a certain responsibility especially in the times that we are living in. There is a lot that needs to change and if I can use my craft, my voice, the medium that I have been given by God to bring about a positive change around me; I will be a very lucky person. So, that’s why I have to consciously make a choice that yes the priority is to entertain audiences but I always make sure that I leave them with more than a couple of laughs,” says Bhumi.
