Aftab Shivdasani is back and this time around wants to shed his ‘boy’ image
Kunal M Shah (MUMBAI MIRROR; March 17, 2011)
After a sabbatical of two years, Aftab Shivdasani is back and this time in a new avatar. To break his ‘boy next door’ stereotype, which he had to live with for the past ten years in the industry, Aftab has grown a moustache to give himself a more manly look.
Speaking about his metamorphosis from a boy to a man, Aftab said, “The thing that goes in my favour is that I have a younger and softer face.
But gone are the days of being a boy. My entire body will be different now. My approach towards everything will be exactly opposite to what it was in the past. This is the new me. So, come discover me.”
And what about the moustaches? “I was always averse to having one. I had never had a moustache in the 40 films that I have done so far. However I have grown it as my director Chandrakanth Singh felt that since I am playing a rural character in Bin Bulaaye Baraati, I should have one.
However now I don’t mind keeping it forever. My moustache is growing on me (literally and figuratively, we suppose),” said the actor.Aftab in Mr India Aftab in Mast
As for his disappearing act, according to the man himself, “I needed time for myself.
I had completed 10 years of work and I wanted to go for a self discovery trip.
I wanted to spend time with myself as I had reached an important juncture in life.
I needed this break for myself. There were More >

It’s really nice to know what success does to people. After the success of films like Damini, Ghayal the proverbial ‘dhaai kilo ka haath’ only became more and strong with every passing film.
But the BO results of the latest blockbuster Yamla Pagla Deewana have changed it all. The ‘dhaai kilo ka haath’ image has now given way to a very soft spoken Sunny Deol, who is now all set to play the role of a … hold your breath… a Sanskrit teacher!
No wonder then, Sunny has started ‘sporting’ a dhoti, the tikka and the moustache these days. The film is called Mohalla 80 and is being directed by Chandraprakash Dwivedi, who shot to overnight fame with the television series of ‘Chanakya’, followed by the film Pinjar.
Sunny Deol, for whom learning Sanskrit has become a priority, expressed his desire to Bollywood Hungama that his dream role was that of his father Dharmendra’s Satyakam. Sunny is confident that Mohalla 80 will prove to be a Satyakam for him.
The said film is slated for an August 2011 release.

Till date, you must have heard of only the ‘Clash Of The Titans’. Well, now, its time for ‘Coming together Of The Titans’. We are referring to the association of Amitabh Bachchan and director Prakash Jha for the film called Aarakshan. Big B recently posted some of the pictures from the sets on his blog.
If one looks at both, Big B as well as Prakash Jha, they look like long lost brothers. No…this isn’t a filmi drama of lost brothers. The fact is that, it was actually Big B who insisted on growing his beard like Prakash Jha so as to get into the ‘skin of the character’.
The entire film has been shot keeping Bhopal as the backdrop. This doesn’t come as a surprise as most of Jha’s movies are set in the heartland of India.
They came together in Love Aaj Kal…now will get repeated in Aarakshan. We are indeed talking about the oh-so-lovely paring of Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone. Saif looks almost unrecognizable with the glasses and moustache. Deepika too will be sporting desi look in the film.
The film is based on student politics and reservations. Besides the towering presence of Big B, the film also has Prateik and Manoj Bajpayee in pivotal role. If the reports are to be believed, then, Prateik’s character is in love with Deepika Padukone. However, Deepika loves Saif Ali Khan instead. She makes this very clear to Prateik who continues to pursue her.
All in all, Aarakshan is the film to More >
After creating ripples as a Sikh, Sunny makes a new style statement
Meena Iyer | TNN (BOMBAY TIMES; February 4, 2011)The turban is gone! Sunny Deol is back in a new avatar for Dr Chandraprakash Dwivedi’s Mohalla 80 that should hit theatres across the world in August 2011.
The actor who won accolades for Yamla Pagla Deewana is playing a Sanskrit teacher in his new film; that explains the dhoti, the tikka and the moustache.
He smiles through the dark mouche and says, “Learning Sanskrit is my priority now. Yes, I’m very comfortable with the dhoti. I wore it a decade ago in a film called Arjun Pandit (1999) but the moustache was missing then.”
Sunny is kicked about working with the very respected Dr Dwivedi who made headlines with the television series Chanakya and his sensitive film Pinjar, that dealt with the Indo-Pak divide.
Says the actor, “My father Dharmendra’s Satyakam (1969) is one of my favourite films. My desire is to do something as sensitive and appreciated as Satyakam. Mohalla 80 should be that film. It is based on a prize winning book. It is also a very emotional film about a teacher who fights hard to retain the principles he believes in.”

“This Oberoi Towers” screamed the headlines when the Suresh Oberoi’s son’s debut film had hit the silver screen. Well, we are indeed talking about the one and only ‘Prince’ charming Vivek Oberoi, who has, of late, become a quintessential part of the media chutzpah, for two major reasons: One was due to the release of the much anticipated Rakht Charitra, a film that consolidated his position at the Box-Office. And the second reason was about him tying know with Priyanka Alva, at a grand ceremony.
Well, as they say, the celebrations for this man just do not end there, for it has just begun! The big news that has gave Vivek Oberoi yet another reason to be in the news (for all the right reasons) is that he and his veteran father Suresh Oberoi have been together signed up as the brand ambassadors of the clothing major Donear Fabrics.
Bollywood Hungama brings an exclusive dekkho at the ad campaign.
Being a brand ambassador of a FMCG brand is nothing new to the Vivek. In the past, he has endorsed products like Coca Cola (how can one forget the famous ‘Wakaao’ catchphrase!). Vivek, being one of the most talented actors of the Gen-Next brigade, has managed to impress one and all with his performances in films such as Company, Saathiya, Yuva, Masti, Omkara and Shootout At Lokhandwala. It was not just his stellar performance in RGV’s Rakht Charitra, but also his new ‘moustache’ look (that he had specially grown for More >
Here’s an exclusive picture of the actor’s avatar in his father’s directorial debut, Mausam
Kunal M Shah (MUMBAI MIRROR; October 25, 2010)
Finally, the cat is out of the bag. Though both Pankaj and Shahid Kapoor tried exceptionally hard to curtail any information about Mausam from being leaked out, Mumbai Mirror caught more than a whiff of it. We present to you a sneak peek of Shahid’s look in the film.
The actor has been extremely cautions about not revealing his look to the media. In fact, he was not signing any films for a long time because he wanted to focus completely on Mausam. After all, it happens to be his father’s directorial debut.
Sasha has been spending most of his time indoors to keep his look in the film a secret. But last weekend, he was shooting at a suburban hospital, where we managed to click pictures of his rather dapper, short-haired army officer look.
Incidentally, some time ago, when Shahid stepped out of his house with his head covered for a special screening of Anjaana Anjaani, his father apparently got really upset with him because his son failed to escape the paparazzi. He warned Shahid not to reveal his look to anyone. As a result, daddy’s boy was grounded and has been indoors ever since.
An onlooker on the sets said, “Shahid was pretty comfortable in the company of others. His moustache makes him look even younger.”
Our political system is filled with people who for some are demonic killers but for many, messiahs. They may be doing their work by breaking all laws but there might be doing it for the people and not necessarily for power and money. Demon in the guise of God or God in the guise of Demon, whatever you may call them, but such people do exist and no one could do any harm to them. Rakht Charitra tells the story of one such person who’s forced to spread bloodshed everywhere due to circumstances. A two-part film (with part 2 releasing next month), Rakht Charitra-1 is filled with violence, violence and more violence. But at the same time, it has a story and most importantly, the trademark Ram Gopal Varma direction that makes this film a gripping watch!
The story of the movie: Pratap Ravi (Vivek Oberoi) gets tragic news one day that his father (Rajendra Gupta) has been brutally killed by the people of his own party. Soon Pratap’s brother (Sushant Singh) too gets killed. Soft-spoken Pratap who always wanted to be away from violence now takes the matter in his own hands to avenge the death of his father and brother. Slowly, he eliminates all his rivals and becomes the undisputed lord of the region. He even joins politics and becomes minister in the cabinet of actor-turned-CM Shivaji (Shatrughan Sinha). However, as Amitabh Bachchan says in Sarkar Raj, “Apne sharto pe chalne wale ko keemat chukani padti hai”. The first part traces the rise of Pratap Ravi and More >
Vivek Oberoi speaks to BT about his new look and his upcoming films
Elina Priyadarshini Nayak (BOMBAY TIMES; (October 9, 2010)
With glares and moustache, Vivek Oberoi reminds you of his father Suresh Oberoi, who’s a dynamic actor. Tell him this and he says with a laugh, “That’s the biggest compliment I have ever got, and I am very proud of it.” The actor is flaunting this new look for his upcoming film. In a chat with BT, Vivek speaks about his new makeover and more… You started your career with Ram Gopal Varma’s film Company in 2002. Did you find any change in Ramu’s working style?
RGV is an actor’s director who deals with films related to reality, and working with him again was a great experience. Usually people tend to slow down with age, but I think RGV has become faster and he is making films at a much faster pace with age. This film, Rakht Charitra, is based on reality, it has real people and real ambience where I am playing the character of late Paritala Ravi, a politician, who was the former cabinet minister in Andhra Pradesh Government. It’s a story of a man who fights for justice and becomes the messiah of justice when the system denies that. For this role, I had to research a lot. I read many articles written on him and I saw many of his live interviews. But, it was very difficult to look, talk and walk like him initially.
And what about your new avatar with moustache?

Jimmy Sheirgill is in elite company. After Naseeruddin Shah/Arshad Warsi (Ishqiya) and Salman Khan (Dabangg) set the screen on fire with their terrific performance in their respective films, both of which had a small town setting to it, it is Jimmy who would be entering a similar zone. The film is titled Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster and while it has a small town setting to it, it also features Jimmy as a ‘sahab’ with a touch of royalty to it.
Smiles Jimmy, “After playing an NRI in My Name Is Khan and a desi munda in Mel Karade Rabba, I guess it should be good fun to step into something entirely different in Sahib Biwi aur Gangster. As the title suggests, the film is being designed as a complete entertainer with some realistic narrative. It would be one action thriller to watch out for next year.”
Slated to go on floors in October with a start-to-finish schedule that would end in November, Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster would feature Mahie Gill as the ‘biwi’ and Randeep Hooda as the ‘gangster’. Quite an interesting combination, one has to admit. Also, the film would be directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia who has earlier directed Jimmy in Haasil and Charas.
“Tigmanshu and I have a tuning. Moreover, Haasil again had a small town setting though the plot is altogether different this time around. While Haasil was about student politics, Sahib Biwi Aur Gangster has a really novel and interesting script. I don’t really wish to divulge much More >
