Sushant Singh

Ep 67: Dabangg

Khandaan: A Bollywood Podcast is back for Episode 67 with Salman Khan’s DABANGG! Directed by Abhinav Kashyap, this 2010 movie co-starred Vinod Khanna, Dimple Kapadia, Sonu Sood, Arbaaz Khan and introduced Sonakshi Sinha.
For various unfortunate reasons, however, this movie has been back in the public eye of late – so we invited ace film critic and journalist Anna Vetticad (visit her site here) to discuss recent developments. Anna is also an author and has written *the* definitive deep dive into Salman Khan in addition to THE ADVENTURES OF AN INTREPID FILM CRITIC (available everywhere books are sold).
Join us as we make our way through some messy times in Hindi cinema and discuss the phenomenon called Salman Khan.
A Short Timeline:
02.30 The continuing fallout of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death on the Hindi film industry
25.05 Remembering Saroj Khan, a true legend
51.00 The Main Review: Dabangg (2010)

Shuddh Desi Romance Digital Poster

Director of the run away hit Band Baaja Baraat,  Maneesh Sharma is back, this time teaming up Sushant Singh Rajput (Kai Po Che) with Parineeti Chopra (Ladies vs Ricky Bahl and Ishaqzaade) and newcomer Vaani Kapoor.

Yash Raj have released a digital poster and a very rustic looking one.

Although he got rave reviews for Kai Po Che, Sushant Singh just has a bit too much of Vivek Oberoi’s doucheyness for me to fully like him. Parineeti is awesome though and I can’t wait to see what she will be up to when her 3 deal contract with YRF is over.

I think like their predecessors Ranveer Singh and Anushkha the bigger and interesting works comes after the contract is done.

We don’t get to see much of what the movie will be about but here is some info in any case from the YRF website:

 

From the director of Band Baaja Baaraat and the writer of Chak De! India, comes a fresh and very real love story about the hair-raising minefield between love, attraction and commitment — SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE — finally, a romantic comedy that tells it like it is.

Starring in this classy, candid look at the affairs of the heart in today’s desi heartland are the endearing Rishi Kapoor, exceptionally talented Sushant Singh Rajput, and the versatile Parineeti Chopra, along with debutant Vaani Kapoor.

SHUDDH DESI ROMANCE is directed by Maneesh Sharma, written by Jaideep Sahni, and produced by Aditya Chopra.
