Lootera

Sonakshi Sinha and Jimmy Shergill Media Interview

Here is a media interview done with Sonakshi Sinha and Jimmy Shergill, Jimmy (and Vidyut Jammwal) being the main reason I would want to watch this movie, its a shame that “the media” didnt bother to find any decent questions for him.

If you haven’s seen it yet, here is a trailer for Bullet Raja:

Enjoy!

 

Sonakshi Sinha Q&A:
 Q: This is your first time working with Saif Ali Khan, were you excited for this opportunity?
A: I think we make a very fresh pairing, I have wanted to work with Saif for a while now and was very excited to get the chance in Bullett Raja. Saif is a great actor and is so committed to his roles, I am very happy with how we look together on screen and I would love the opportunity to work with him again.
Q: Your role in the film is of a struggling Bengali actress, what did you think of your characters look in the film?
A: This is the second time I am playing a Bengali girl. But my character in Lootera was drastically different; I was playing a girl from the ’50s, who is a Zamindar’s daughter. In Bullett Raja, I am playing a contemporary Bengali girl. I loved my look for this role; it has a very traditional feel and there was a certain grace to it. Once I was in the costume, everyone was shocked to see how Bengali I looked. I wish the sequence we shot in that costume was a little longer, because I did not want to get out of it.
Q: After having so much success so early in your career with your films, do you feel under pressure with every new release?
A: There’s no pressure actually. I really like what I do and if I think of it as pressure it would really bog me down. I feel I’m in the right place at the right time because there are a lot of films right now where, for me as an actor, there’s something I can give to them. So I truly believe I’m in the right place at the right time.
Q: Do you feel overshadowed by your co-stars? Does less visibility bother you?
A: Never. I do my work to the best of my capacity. I don’t pick a role looking at its length. I take up a film because I would like to see it. People notice me, appreciate my work and dancing skills, so where’s the question of being overshadowed? No one has any complaints.

Q: How would you describe this phase of your life?
A: I’ve come in at the right time and I’m getting films with great roles. It’s fabulous.

Q: No one has ever heard of any stories of you fighting over a role or anything of that sort. Does that mean you’re serious competition here?
A: I’ve never had to fight for a role. Call it my ego or my self-respect, but I won’t pick up the phone and call a producer and fight or ask for a role. That’s not me. I’ve always got the best and my work speaks for itself.

Q: But you’re always the Indian girl. Don’t you want to break that image?
A: People see me like that. I may play an Indian girl, but each role is different. If I’m offered a film where I need to play an urban character, I will. But these roles work for me. I’m not stuck in a rut and neither do I feel the need to break the norm. When a female star plays western roles only, no one asks her these questions. At 25, I can proudly say that I’m successful.

Jimmy Shergill Q&A
 Q: What’s the relationship between you and Saif in Bullett Raja?
A: In this film we are best friends and we go out and do what gangster buddies do… casually shoot people.
 Q: What do you think about Saif off camera?
A: Saif and I were shooting together every single day and it was great as we got time to bond. Saif has a great sense of humour and he makes you laugh. I had a memorable time and I look forward to our second schedule which begins in January. I respect Saif as a friend and fellow actor. He’s a great guy and he’s one of the most genuine persons in the film industry.

Bullett Raja will be released in cinemas from 29th November 2013.

New Trailer Lootera: Reveals more of the plot!

We just recorded a massive episode of UPodcast where we do 2013 mid year wrap up and also talk about the movies we are looking forward to in the 2nd half of the year. The one movie that both our guests FilmiGirlGetfilmy and Upodcast were very much excited for was Vikramaditya Motwane’s Ranveer Singh – Sonakshi Sinha starrer Lootera, slated for a July 5th release.

Until now not too much was revealed in the first trailer except that it was a romance set in the 50’s. The 2nd trailer changes that and give us much more of the story which seems to be Indiana Jones meets Catch Me If You Can added with some desi tadka.

 

 

How beautiful does that look?

Last time Ranveer Singh played a con man in Ladies vs Ricky Bahl wasn’t met with the kind of success as his debut so it’s quite interesting he is taking on what seems to be another role of a scam artist. As I mentioned during the UPodcast recording for me this is Sonakshi’s litmus test, she has the talent and screen presence but until now has been stuck doing inconsequential roles paired opposite much older heroes.

Director Vikramaditya Motwane’ s following up the critically acclaimed Udaan teaming up with Balaji entertainment which is an interesting collaboration. I have been listenting to the Amit Trivedi’s soundtrack pretty much non stop.

There is a lot riding on Lootera and I’m liking what I’m seeing until now.
