The director who had been working as an assistant director for the past many years was excited to be directing Baar Baar Dekho. She said “This is my first film and I am very excited about the film. I have been working as an assistant director for the past so many years. So when I got the chance to call the shots, it was such a wow moment.

The chemistry between Katrina and Sidharth has been making much news. “It was a good chemistry simply because I was comfortable with him in real life too. When you are acting with another actor, you need to have some rapport or else it falls apart. Trust is very important in every sphere of your life and that has been the case here too” said Katrina Kaif.

The film has been shot in stunning film locations like Glasgow, Scotland and Krabi, Thailand.

Despite being high on the popularity charts, the actor has remained away from many digital platforms. When asked about this aloofness, the actor said “I do not have any individual doing PR work for me. I do not want to change myself. I dislike so much marketing. Everything has become a product in today’s time. Earlier when we needed to purchase anything, we went outside to the shops. Now everything is available in the comforts of your home. If I was capable, I would have completely stayed away from marketing”.

Since the trailer and the songs of the film has been getting positive reviews, the actor is confident that the film will also be gaining good feedback from the audience.

Madaari is slated for release on the 22nd of July.

Upcoming Hindi Film TE3N Press Meet Held in Kolkata; Amitabh Bachchan Talks At Length About His Shooting Experiences in Kolkata


Video: Upcoming Bollywood Film TE3N press conference

The press conference of the upcoming Bollywood film TE3N took place in Kolkata in the presence of Amitabh Bachchan, Sujoy Ghosh and Ribhu Dasgupta.

TE3N-press-meet

Set in Kolkata, the film TE3N is about a crime that affects the lives of the three principal characters. Amitabh Bachchan plays the role of John Biswas who is a grandfather and is in pursuit of justice for the last eight years. Vidya Balan plays the role of the cop, Sarita Sarkar, who swings in action when an identical crime is committed after eight years. Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays Father Martin Das whose life changes forever by the same crime that claimed the life of John Biswas’s grand-daughter.

TE3N-press-conference

Speaking about the character, Amitabh Bachchan said “Ribhu did not want any cliché mannerisms in the acting. So I stayed away from speaking in Bengali which I had earlier done in Piku. I spoke in a simple manner as was expected from a grandfather who is in pursuit of his granddaughter”.

Big B who had strolled on a cycle in Piku was spotted riding a scooter on the streets of the city for the shooting of this film. When questioned on which one was easier to ride, he said “The cycle was definitely easier. But Ribhu gave me a scooter and I practiced on that in Mumbai. When I came to Kolkata, I used to practice riding it near Maidan. I had driven the scooter so many years ago. It definitely was difficult initially”.

Amitabh-Bachchan-TE3N

Scripted by Suresh Nair and Bijesh Jayarajan, the music is by Clinton Cerejo and action is by Sham Kaushal.

Amitabh Bachchan who often goes for strolls in the city alone at night was pleasantly surprised when Ribhu took him to North Kolkata for the shoots. “I have never been to North Kolkata and I was surprised and also fascinated by the architecture of the buildings. The culture also attracted me. I discovered Kolkata yet again” added the actor.

TE3N-press-conference

The actor who had worked both with directors using film rolls is also working in this digital age. “See when we used to work before, we had to be careful about the lights and also give the perfect shots at one take. Or else wastage of resources will happen. With digital technology, one can give more than one shot. One can take the perfect shot and there is also less guilt on the actors for retakes. I can name some actors like Ranveer, Ranbir, Alia, Deepika, Vidya, Nawaz who are just so spontaneous in front of the camera. They come and they just deliver. They are exceptional talents!!”

Amitabh-TE3N-Kolkata

When asked what made Big B choose this role, he said “At this juncture of my career, I simply look for roles which challenge me. Or else I will become stagnant as an actor. Hence I have always looked forward for such meaningful roles in the films that I have selected. I just hope that I will continue to get such roles and challenge myself”.

TE3N releases tomorrow!! With such a stellar cast and a gripping story, TE3N must surely feature on your must watch movie list!!
