Priyanka is Extraordinary, says Shahid

August 10, 2009

Are they or aren’t they a couple? That’s a question Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor steered clear of, even as he praised his Kaminey co-star Priyanka Chopra to the skies saying she is at her “career’s best right now”.

“I always knew Priyanka was a very good actress and after working with her in Kaminey, I think she has given one of the most splendid performances of her career. I think Priyanka is at her career’s best right now,” said Shahid.

“Apart from that she is a team player and it’s great that she did this film in spite of knowing that the hero had a double role. She is a self-assured actor and very confident. She gives her best to whatever she does. I’m sure she’ll be noticed and appreciated by the audience,” he added.

Reminiscing his camaraderie with the beauty queen-turned-actress while filming the movie, he said: “It was amazing and I had a lot of fun working with her. We started our careers almost at the same time (2003).”

The 28-year-old actor was in the capital to be a part of BIG 92.7 FM’s Dilli Ka Kaminaapan Quotient contest and promote his film Kaminey at the radio station. The contest was won by 15 listeners who had to prove that they were the biggest kaminey of the city.

Releasing Friday, Kaminey has been produced and distributed by UTV Motion Pictures and written-directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. Writer-turned-director Amol Gupte makes his onscreen debut in the film.

Shahid is on a chain of promotional visits and has been noticed marketing the movie alone, without the leading lady. He explained, “Me and Priyanka are doing a lot of promotions together and also individually. We recently did a press conference together in Bangalore.”

Kaminey has had its share of controversies considering a reported on-off relationship between Shahid and Priyanka. Shahid kept mum on this but insisted that such rumours added to “pressure” in a celebrity’s life and career.

India will enjoy Angels & Demons: Tom Hanks

July 7, 2009

Hollywood star Tom Hanks has promised his fans in India that his controversial Angels & Demons will live up to their expectations as they have a “soulful liking for thrillers”. He also says he would love to come to India to “be among the most lovable human fraternity”.

Hanks is glad that Angels & Demons, a sequel to worldwide hit The Da Vinci Code, is releasing the same day in India as in the US. “I am happy that it is not being released in phases … We would like to give our (Indian) audiences the thrill of seeing an exceptionally adventurous thriller along with the US on May 15,” Hanks said in an e-mail interview.

“They have a soulful liking especially for thrillers…I hereby promise my fans in India that they would surely enjoy this movie and it would definitely live up to their expectations,” he added.

Asked if he had visited India, the 52-year-old actor said: “Honestly, I did not get an opportunity to be there. But I wish some day I will be among the most lovable human fraternity. Indians are considered very warm- hearted and humble people so I also want to have a share of that warmth.”

The Oscar-winning actor, best known for his performances in Philadelphia, Forrest Gump and The Terminal, has heard a lot about the Indian film industry and is game for working here though he has not been “approached yet” for any project.

“Who doesn’t know about the Indian film industry nowadays…but I never have been part of it. I know many actors but can’t really pronounce their names well. Sorry for that though.

“If I get an opportunity to venture into such a project, I will seriously think about it. I want to experience the uniqueness of foreign movies and their calibre,” he added.

Directed by Ron Howard, Angels & Demons is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Dan Brown. While the book is a prequel to The Da Vinci Code, Howard chose to treat Angels & Demons as a sequel since many had read the novel after The Da Vinci Code.

Distributed worldwide by Columbia Pictures, it also stars Ayelet Zurer and Ewan McGregor apart from Hanks, who reprises his role as Harvard professor and religious expert Robert Langdon.

In the film, Langdon attempts to thwart the Illuminati, a 400-year-old underground organisation and their plans to wreak havoc on the Vatican.

The movie, like The Da Vinci Code, is facing the ire of church officials for its alleged ‘religious overtones’ and ‘anti-Catholic sentiments’. But Hanks stressed that the film does not intend to offend any religious community.

“The film is not made to raise debates or ensue into offensive gestures over any community. Neither have we come up with any stringent solution. At the core of it all is the age-old contrast between science and religion.

“Angels & Demons is an exemplary attempt by Ron to showcase the impact of technology to keep the faith alive among humans. I don’t see it as an offence made on the Catholic community over the globe,” the actor said.

Hanks is also “excited” and “overwhelmed” that the 138-minute thriller “has captured mass-fan following” despite the controversies. The trailer for the movie has already crossed a hit of over 1.2 million views on YouTube.

The actor said he had to read “a lot of stuff on Illuminati era and ancient symbols” and William Manchester’s book A World Lit only By Fire for his role. He added that the film “has the same dose of high-end thrill and is equally fast-paced as the novel”.

Apart from Angels & Demons, his upcoming movies include Major Matt Mason, Toy Story 3 and Boone’s Lick.

Latin American distributors, who saw the international version of Rakesh Roshan’s Kites, are stunned by Hrithik’s resemblance to Jesus Christ in the film.

It’s been two weeks since the Bollywood film was showcased at the Cannes Film Festival, but the buzz around it still continues at the French Riviera. And, another thing, if the Mexican actress Barbara Mori has taken Bollywood by storm, Hrithik has done the same thing in Latin America. Foreign distributors were reportedly taken up by the searing intensity in his eyes, his lithe frame and Adonis-like tan. Some of them were heard commenting that Hrithik would be the ideal actor to play Christ in a western production.
