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.

Here’s Why Bhushan Kumar Decided To Make Batla House

Over the years, T-Series’ head honcho Bhushan Kumar has made it a habit of not only making films that strike a chord with the masses but also leave an impact. His upcoming action-thriller ‘Batla House’ starring John Abraham is no different, and has been making the right noise ever since it was announced.

Inspired by the Operation Batla House, which took place in 2008 against Indian Mujahideen terrorists in Batla House locality in Jamia Nagar, Delhi, ‘Batla House’ traces the story of the shootout between a seven-member Delhi Police Special Cell team and suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists allegedly involved in the serial blasts of September 13, 2008, in Delhi.

Directed by Nikkhil Advani, this fictionalized account of the most controversial encounters in India, is undoubtedly one of the most awaited films of the year, and producer Bhushan Kumar, whose production company T-Series is producing the film, is extremely excited to present the film to the audience.

Revealing his reasons to produce this film in the first place, Bhushan Kumar said, “First and foremost, what made me associate with this project was Ritesh Shah’s script. He has done a thorough research about this entire episode and has weaved all the facts together in an engaging narrative. The film starts with a bang and maintains the tempo throughout. Secondly, I strongly felt that it is an important story that needs to be told, especially because of what happened after the encounter. It is a very sensitive case with two sides to it and we have tried to cover everything in this film and have kept it real.”

He further adds, “Interestingly, despite being based on a real encounter, Batla House has a strong mass appeal to it too.”

Apart from Batla House, Bhushan Kumar, who certainly knows the pulse of the audience, is also producing a series of other interesting films including a biographical drama – Mogul, a coming-of-age dance film – Street Dancer 3 D, a war drama film – Bhuj: The Pride Of India among others.
Clearly, the man believes not just in quality but variety too as he is producing films in several genres.
