New Bollywood Film Dil Dhadakne Do Kolkata Promotions
Dressed in a printed shirt and matching three quarter trousers, along with a yellow ochre hat and goggles to match- Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh made sure he was prepared to face the heat and humidity of the City of Joy. The actor along with Anil Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar and producer Ritesh Sidhwani was present in Kolkata for the promotions of the upcoming Hindi film Dil Dhadakne Do.
The film Dil Dhadakne Do, directed by Zoya Akhtar is the story of a Punjabi family on a cruise trip. Speaking about their experiences of shooting on the cruise, actor Farhan Akhtar (who is also producing the film along with Ritesh Sidhwani) said “The ship could not sail during the first seven days. We waited for the ship to get rid of the technical difficulties. When after a week, we finally sailed, we were all so very ecstatic”. Ranveer Singh was speechless on sharing screen space with Anil Kapoor during the shooting of the film. “I have always looked up to him. I wanted to be like him. When on the first day I found that the scene demanded me to stand beside him and stare at the rising sun, I was speechless. My happiness knew no bounds”.
Ranveer Singh who will be sharing screen space with Anushka Sharma after a few years praised the actress for her dedication, hard work and her evolution as an actress over the years.
Gallan Goodiyan is one song which made all the actors’ heart beat louder than the normal pace. “Imagine us dancing to a song of four minutes duration non-stop!! My goodness, it was one hell of an experience. I just hope that the audience likes our one shot dancing extravaganza” said Ranveer Singh, who plays Kabir Mehra in the film.
The actresses of the film consisting of Anushka Sharma, Priyanka Chopra and Shefali Shah were not present at the occasion. “Anushka is not well, as many of you might know from news. Priyanka and Shefali are busy with their other film schedules and hence they could not turn up. However we are having a grand time as this is a boy’s day out. We will be heading to watch the IPL match and I will be supporting Mumbai Indians” said Ranveer Singh.
Pluto, the dog will be seen in an important role in the film. “He is actually the hero and we are the supporting actors and actresses” said Anil Kapoor with a smile.
Taking cue from what he said, Farhan added “In one scene he was to run up to me and lick my face. The dog is also an actor and he was not in the mood that day for the scene. So I had to put vanilla ice cream on my face so as to tempt the dog to come and lick my face. It was a hilarious experience”.
On the request of the assembled guests and the media personnel, the actors also broke to a jig to the song “Gallan Goodiyan”.
The trailer and the songs have already gained much popularity amongst the masses. The audiences will have to wait till the 5th of June to understand what adrenaline rush the film promises.
