letter from the editor

No half measures You could call it trial by fire. Arjun Kapoor has gone through various emotional upheavals and come out tops. Losing his mother (producer Mona Kapoor) at a young age, he keeps her alive by holding her core values close to his heart. Being a producer’s son (Boney Kapoor), he knows the importance of flying a tight slip and is known to co-operate the utmost with his filmmakers. He does have a reputation of being a Don Juan but that’s hardly unique in the film industry. He may not be a complete actor but he’s undoubtedly a sincere one. He may not possess the natural ease, say, of his uncle Anil Kapoor but he makes up for it by his earnest effort. It’s said he practised hard at a…

why so serious?

As Kanan Gill and I look for a coffee shop in Bandra on a sultry afternoon, a girl in a passing rickshaw shrieks, “Kanaaan!” on spotting him. Such is the popularity of this dishy young stand-up comic, who shot to fame with Pretentious Movie Reviews on YouTube, where he reviewed movies of yore with fellow comic and friend Biswa Kalyan Rath. From duds like Prem Aggan to classics like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (DDLJ), the duo spared none and entertained audiences with their lighthearted analysis. As we sip coffee, Kanan tells me he was lucky to have landed a plump role in the Sonakshi Sinha starrer Noor. Directed by Sunhil Sippy, Noor is based on Pakistani author Saba Imtiaz’s novel Karachi, You’re KillingMe! It has Sonakshi in the titular role while…

“I’M AN UNCONVENTIONAL PERSON, THE KIND WHO WOULD DO THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT IS TOLD TO HIM. I DON’T LIKE DOING THE OBVIOUS THINGS” The music of the Anushka Sharma and Diljit Dosanjh starrer Phillauri has hit a high note with the audience. Newbie music director Shashwat Sachdev, is more than happy with the resonance of appreciation coming his way for the score, which is a rare mix of Punjabi folk and Indo- Western music. Songs like Dum dum with its Sufi-Punjabi feel sung by Romy and Vivek Hariharan and another version of the song sung by Diljit Dosanjh topped the popularity charts. So did Saiba and Bajaaketumba with its part old world, part contemporary songwriting. The initial brief given to Shashwat was to compose music for a period film set in…
