In an ensemble cast, loss is borne by all, says Meera Chopra

Posted on 28 March 2014 by admin

Southern actress Meera Chopra, who teamed up with a host of actors in her Bollywood debut “Gang Of Ghosts”, says there is an advantage of working in a multi-starrer – the onus is on everyone if the movie doesn’t work.

Released Friday, the comedy revolves around ghosts. it has been directed by Satish Kaushik who pulled off an impressive cast that includes Sharman Joshi, Parambrata Chatterjee, Mahie Gill, Anupam Kher, Saurabh Shukla, Rajpal Yadav and Jackie Shroff. it has got a lukewarm respone at the box office.

Meera said: “Before this film (‘Gang of Ghosts’), i had signed Vikram Bhatt’s film, which is a supernatural love story. So first, i signed that, but first this film released. So i feel it’s an advantage for me…even if it’s a flop, the entire burden will not be on me as the film has an ensemble cast.”

“if a film has an ensemble cast, the loss is borne by all the actors and i am glad i am debuting with the film. My next film is a solo project,” she added. Meera started her acting career in southern film industry and her first few releases include her hit debut tamil film “Anbe Aaruyire” and telugu movie “Bangaram”. When asked why did she start her career with southern cinema, she said offer knocked on her door.

BO: ‘Ragini MMS 2’ collects 24 cr in opening weekend

Posted on 28 March 2014 by admin

‘SEX sells’ has been reinforced with Ekta Kapoor’s ‘Ragini MMS 2’ collecting Rs 24 crore in its opening weekend. The other three releases last Friday including Satish Kaushik’s ‘Gang of Ghosts’, Rajat Kapur’s ‘Aankhon Dekhi’ and Nagesh Kukunoor’s ‘Lakshmi’ have failed to rake in the moolah.

Exhibitor Rajesh Thadani said, `’Ragini MMS 2’ has done great business in the first weekend. The Kangna Ranaut-starrer, ‘Queen’, is going rock-steady with Rs 46 crore in its kitty. The collection of the other three films has been disappointing. None of them has touched even the Rs 3 crore mark.`

Trade experts believe that ‘Ragini MMS 2’ could have done better business had it not been for its ‘adult’ certificate. Trade analyst Amod Mehra said, `Satel-ite market for adult films is almost nonexistent, otherwise the film had bright prospects. The songs were its biggest strength.`

But did Sunny Leone’s presence in the film have anything to do with its box office collections? `’Ragini MMS’ is a franchise which generated a lot of curiosity among the audience. But Sunny’s presence, combined with the horror angle, did result in more business,` Mehra added.

Not disheartened over ‘Shuddhi’, ‘Bombay Samurai’: Kareena Kapoor

Posted on 19 March 2014 by admin

Actress Kareena Kapoor doesn’t feel disheartened about her projects get-ting delayed or things not working out the way she wants them to, and has indeed started taking them in her stride.

two of Kareena’s most talked-about films, Karan Johar’s home production ‘shuddhi’ and ‘Bombay samurai’ opposite Farhan Akhtar are stuck for some reasons. In case of ‘shuddhi’, the project derailed due to lead actor Hrithik roshan’s health issues, forcing Kareena to walk out of the venture.

‘Bombay  samurai’ got delayed apparently as the production house (excel entertainment) is busy with other project with  shah rukh Khan.  the film was initially supposed to go on floors this month but now it will happen post september, contrary to reports that it is delayed to next year.

“I have left ‘shuddhi’, I am not part of it anymore. I am not at all disheartened about it. It (‘Bombay samurai’ getting delayed) gives me more time for myself and to holiday… I am married now I am not running a relay marathon now. I don’t know why the press makes such a big deal about it,” Kareena told PtI in an exclusive interview here.

“After ‘singham 2’, we will shoot for ‘Bombay samurai’. It (film) needs international crew so we will begin (to) work on it post  september,” she said, adding that shooting for ‘singham 2’ will start from March 25. When asked about her refusal to projects like ‘Queen’, ‘ramLeela’, ‘chennai express’, ‘Fashion’, ‘Kal Ho Na Ho’, ‘Black’ and others which subsequently went to other actresses, Kareena said she did not regret her decision.

“I feel honoured and glad to give work to other people. I hope they (actresses) become stars as I have rejected big films,” she said. When asked about her criteria for picking a film, Kareena said she wanted to be related to the project and big banner is secondary. “I am looking for films that I want to be part of… something that excites me. I listen to about two stories a day but I am not going to say yes to anyone, no matter who it is. I don’t think whether that person is big (filmmaker) or not. I will go by the script and that is more important for me and I have learnt that over the years,” Kareena added.
