Yet another Pagalanti from Anees Bazmee’s crazy house of laughter!

In his prolific film career as a successful writer-director spanning over three decades, Anees Bazmee has blessed Hindi cinema and movie aficionados with blockbuster comedies full of memorable characters, namely No Entry, Welcome franchise, Singh Is Kinng, No Problem, Ready, Thank You and Mubarakan among others.

Fondly referred to as the ‘King of Comedy’, the creative genius has also written several money-spinners including Shola Aur Shabnam, Bol Radha Bol, Aankhen, Raja Babu and Mujhse Shadi Karogi to name a few, thereby creating his unique brand of comedy over the years and still successfully maintaining the same with his next offering, the highly-anticipated multi-starrer comedy, Pagalpanti featuring Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Arshad Warsi, Pulkit Samrat, Ileana D’Cruz, Kriti Kharbanda and Urvashi Rautela.

Anees informs, “Being a writer has really helped me work on so many movies in the comedy genre. I probably wouldn’t have been able to do that if I was just a director and worked on other person’s idea or story. I have always maintained that it’s easy to create buffoonery with nudity and double meaning dialogues but scoring a hit with a clean comedy that a family can sit together and enjoy is a real challenge.”

The monstrous hit maker who has a string of comedies lined up for the next year explains, “Comedy is a very serious business, and interestingly not many are aware that most of the comedy films that I have made so far, I’ve written them when I was not in the best state of mind, or in an unwell condition.”

Recollecting an interesting anecdote which also shows his professionalism and dedication towards his craft, Bazmee reveals, “When I was shooting Welcome, I was unwell for a particular schedule and when Nana (Patekar) got to know about my ill health, he was a little worried and asked me to rest. But I told him that I’ll be okay if I keep working and later when I was editing the film, my assistants told me how I shot that particular scene when I was not keeping well. As Raj Kapoor sahab said, ‘the show must go on’.”

Like his successful comedies, the characters that he creates are equally crazy, hilariously entertaining and memorable, be it Uday-Majnu bhai and RDX in Welcome or Prem and Kishan in No Entry. His highly-anticipated multi starrer laugh riot, Pagalpanti is no different! “Shooting for the movie was nothing less than a roller-coaster ride. I’m sure the audience will enjoy the crazy characters in the movie, be it Anil Kapoor’s Wifi bhai, John Abraham’s Raj Kishore, Arshad as Junky and Pulkit as Chandu. The most important challenge is to ensure that all the actors that you work with have faith in you and your vision as a filmmaker. I’m grateful that the actors that I have worked with have always had that belief in me. Maybe it’s out of their love and respect,” Anees concludes.

Rakesh Roshan’s superhero flick KRRISH 4 starring Hrithik Roshan to roll from January 2020!

The fourth part of Rakesh Roshan’s hugely popular superhero franchise, Krrish, is one of the most in-demand movies with Hrithik Roshan fans and distributors who keep asking the filmmaker when his next will start. Here’s some good news for them. Six years after Krrish 3, apparently, Hrithik and Rakesh Roshan are all set to announce the fourth series of their superhero franchise Krrish next month and filming will begin by January 2020.

Says a trade source, “After the huge success of his last two movies, Super 30 and War, Hrithik Roshan has been flooded with some really good offers but the actor is being choosy and biding his time. While there’s been talk that he has put Farah Khan and Rohit Shetty’s Seven on hold till the script is re-written, Hrithik and Rakesh Roshan, have been sitting in all creatives of Krrish 4 so they are all set to announce it by this year. Hithik’s next movie announcement will be Krrish 4 which begins shoot from January next year. They would have announced it earlier but as the filmmaker was recovering from his illness, it took time. But for the last few months, Rakesh Roshan has been sitting on the script and fine-tuning all other details.”

The source adds that the Krrish 4 script is ready. “It’s again another mind-blowing concept from Rakesh Roshan and his team. They were trying to crack something spectacularly different from the other Krrish series and they found it. Apart from Right now, team Krrish is finalising the recce and where they will begin shot. Rakesh Roshan is an extremely meticulous and is involved in every aspect of production. He is leaving no stone to make sure that Krrish 4 becomes one of the most widely watched movies, like the earlier series. One won’t be surprised if they launch Krrish 4 and begin shooting from Hrithik’s birthday (January 10) but this movie will definitely be Hrithik’s next after War!”

While the earlier three parts, Koi…Mil Gaya, Krrish, Krrish 3 were directed by Rakesh Roshan, in recent times there were rumours that instead of him Sanjay Gupta would be directing it. But the senior filmmaker had squashed all talk when he said while Gupta was involved in the creatives along with the Roshans; he himself would be directing the movie. Gupta is currently busy with the shoot of his next movie, Mumbai Saga, which gets complete by December.
