Bollywood Actors Ranvir Shorey, Neha Dhupia Promote Upcoming Film Moh Maya Money in Kolkata


The promotions of the upcoming Bollywood film Moh Maya Money (In Greed We Trust) took place in the presence of the lead cast of the film Ranvir Shorey, Neha Dhupia and debutant director, Munish Bhardwaj.

The story of the film Moh Maya Money is about a young real-estate broker who tries to pull off a huge scam, which goes horribly wrong. To fix everything he involves his begrudging wife in a white-collar crime, leading to an end neither could imagine.


Speaking at the occasion, Neha Dhupia said “I am playing the character of Divya, who is a news producer and is content with her life. It is due to her husband’s scam she gets involved in a white-collar crime. The story of the film is so relevant in today’s current scenario. Bollywood films mainly show what can happen as a result of some issue. But this focuses on the present situation and what is happening now”.

Ranvir Shorey who plays the character of Aman said “I am employed as a real estate broker in a multinational, company. Aman often skims money from his company because he is greedy for the good life. Through a series of unfortunate events, the deal snowballs out of his control putting his and his wife, Divya’s lives in danger. To fix everything he involves his begrudging wife in a desperate white collar crime.

Moh Maya Money was picked up by the New York Indian Film Festival and the London Indian Film Festival. At its world premiere in New York earlier this year, it sold out its two shows and garnered positive reviews internationally. It is currently a hot-favourite on the festival circuit with screenings at the Chicago South Asian Film Festival, The Indian Film Festival of Houston, Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival, the Joburg Film Festival and the Vancouver International South Asian Film festival among others.


Ranvir Shorey also added that corruption is not always about money or material wealth. It is also about the corruption of the values of individuals. He feels that the director had shown that wonderfully in the film.

Produced by Sandeep Narula, Moh Maya Money is a Delhi Talkies production that stars Ranvir Shorey, Neha Dhupia along with Devendra Chauhan, Vidushi Mehra and Ashwath Bhatt. The film is nationally distributed by PVR Pictures, India and is slated to release on 25th November, 2016.

Shahrukh and Kajol in Kolkata to Promote Dilwale

Their chemistry still sparks up the screen and gives many a new and young couples a hard time to hold back their emotions. They are the evergreen romantic couple Shahrukh Khan and Kajol who still look as good together even after seven films. The duo was in the city for the post release promotions of their latest released film Dilwale.


Dilwale marked the pairing up of this romantic onscreen couple after My Name Is Khan. Speaking about their pairing, Kajol said “It is not that we meet regularly. We meet during shoots. However such is our friendship that we carry forward the acting from where we had left in the last film we did together. Our friendship helps in the acting very much”.


Shahrukh Khan who disclosed the fact that the box office returns of this film is the highest from Kolkata also thanked the city for giving him so much love and affection. “As soon as we landed at the airport, some airport authorities called me Khan dada, and this amused Kajol very much. But I must say that is the kind of love and affection that I have always been showered with whenever I come to the city” said the Badshah.


Kajol who looked sensuous and beautiful in a black chiffon sari with golden borders also said hello to the people of the city on her mother Tanuja’s behalf “I know many of my relatives will be chiding me for not giving them a call or visiting them. But time is short and visiting everyone will not be possible” said the actress.


Shahrukh Khan was very careful when confronted with issues regarding intolerance. He said “I have never tried to hurt anyone’s feelings with my remarks. If that has happened I am sorry. But not allowing my film to run in the halls is surely not a good gesture. There are people who love me and want to see my film. I will request people to allow my fans to watch the film. Other than this I cannot say anything more. If I say anything more, people will again misinterpret it leading to more controversies in future”.

With promises of shooting a full length film with only Shahrukh Khan in it, King Khan made his way to the East Bengal grounds where about twenty thousand people were waiting for Bollywood’s romantic reel couple.

Bollywood Hero Ranbir Kapoor and Actress Anushka Sharma visit Kolkata to promote their Upcoming Bollywood Hindi Film ‘Bombay Velvet’

Video: New Hindi Film Bombay Velvet Promotions in Kolkata

Bollywood stars Anushka Sharma and Ranbir Kapoor were in Kolkata to promote their upcoming Bollywood Hindi Film Bombay Velvet which revolves around the life of a boxer named Johnny Balraj and a bar singer Rosie. How their dreams and hopes collide with their individual realities is what the story is all about. The film is based on a book by Gyan Prakash titled Mumbai Fables.


“It is indeed very disheartening at times when people make such a drastic comment on the personal lives of the stars. The thing that happened with Anushka was very bad. I understand that the people want to know much about our lives, but one must always keep in mind that our personal lives should not be turned into gossip stories” said Ranbir Kapoor at the promotion of the upcoming Bollywood film Bombay Velvet in Kolkata.


“Well, I had to understand the nuances of singing like a jazz singer. The singing style is different and hence I trained myself to suit the role well. Neeti Mohan had done a great job with the songs and I wanted to do my job in a fitting manner. Hopefully the audiences will be able to relate the song sung by Neeti with the lip syncing that I have done in the film” said Anushka Sharma.


Both the actors opined that working with Karan Johar was a delightful experience. “Karan is a multi-talented individual. Director, television show anchor, reality show judge and what not!! He never came to the sets with a baggage that he was a reputed director. He came as a newbie actor who wanted to learn many things about acting. It was great shooting with him. He even took advices on acting from me. I am looking forward to acting under his direction” said Ranbir Kapoor.

When questioned about her working chemistry with Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor respectively, Anushka revealed that working with Ranbir Kapoor was a better and fulfilling experience than working with Ranveer Singh.


A part of the film was also to be shot in Kolkata. However it could not happen due to financial constraints, revealed Ranbir. “Bringing such a big crew to Kolkata and shooting at the docks required a huge budget. Since that was not possible, the shoot at Kolkata had to be cancelled. The docks were recreated on the sets in Mumbai” said Ranbir. The actor also will be back in Kolkata in August to shoot for one of his upcoming Hindi films.


Marriage is on the cards for both the actors. Anushka mentioned that marriage is not something that one could hide and she would reveal to the media once she decides on getting married. Ranbir said “The next step is always marriage, kids, family. But I am just 32(smiles). I do not want to comment anything now. If I say anything a Pandora’s Box will open and it will go on and on. Hence I am keeping my mouth shut at the moment on my relationship status or marriage”.

Directed by Anurag Kashyap, Bombay Velvet releases on May 15.

Upcoming Bollywood Hindi Film ‘Tanu weds Manu Returns’ Stars Kangana Ranaut and R. Madhavan Promote the Film in Kolkata

Tanu weds Manu Returns Kolkata Promotions

“I always had conflicting ideas when it came to marriage. When I look at my parents and see them leading a happy and contented life together, I gain trust in the institution of marriage. At other times, when I see divorces and the other problems associated with marriages, I shrink away from the idea of getting married. Hence I do not know what will happen in the next few years regarding my marital status” said Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut with a smile at the promotions of Tanu weds Manu Returns in Kolkata. The actress was accompanied by R. Madhavan who is the male lead in the film.


The film Tanu weds Manu Returns is a film set four years after the first film Tanu weds Manu. In the first film two distinctly different individuals meet and they fall in love. In this film they are shown to be married and their marriage is on the verge of divorce. Whether they are able to save their marriage and find love is what the film is all about.


Kangana Ranaut, fresh from her win at the National Awards for her portrayal of a free spirited woman in Queen was extremely straightforward when asked about her selection of roles. “See, when I was working before I did not have the liberty to actually pick and choose the roles!! But after this win, I have the liberty. I am at a position now where I can actually accept or reject a particular role” said the feisty actress.


Kangana will be seen in a double role in this film. “I have always been given challenging roles. In this film I had to pick up an accent which was extremely difficult. But when you are an actor, you have to try and I did that. I just hope people like it and appreciate the effort that I put in making Kusum credible” added the actress.


Madhavan had a different take altogether on the concept of marriage. “No marriage in the world is completely full of fun. It has its shares of downs too. I am lucky my wife had been part and parcel of both the successes and also the failures in my life” said the actor.

Both the actors said that the humor in the film is subtle and relatable. The humor in the intense story will always bring a smile to the face of the audiences when they will be watching the film.

“For me the story is always more important than the characters. And you see when the scripts are good, the characters are difficult ones. The same is the case with this film too. But I had a good time shooting the film” said Kangana.


Kangana also added that the film is a quirky and fresh take on the institution of marriage. “What role does a man have in a self sufficient woman’s life? That question is faced by the many young girls in today’s time. We all enjoy our freedom and are self sufficient. Gone are the days when women depended more on women and had to get into marriage for security. Now women can manage themselves well and take care of the securities too. Then why marry?” added the actress.

Directed by Anand L Rai, the film is slated for release on the 22nd of May.
