Abhijeet Bhattacharya feels singers don’t get due credit. Looks at other avenues
Parag Maniar (BOMBAY TIMES; April 2, 2012)
Since last singing for Shah Rukh Khan (Om Shanti Om’s Dhoom Tana) in 2007, Abhijeet Bhattacharya has largely maintained a low profile.
The singer has been in the real estate business for some time now and is also investing in the fine arts. “I will soon join hands with an Australian-based coffee brand to launch retail outlets here,” he adds
So you’re a full-fledged businessman now? Who doesn’t want to broaden one’s avenues? Singing was never my bread-and-butter anyway. Also, there are things I am hurt about…
Like what… I don’t know why our filmmakers never give singers due credit. During the end credits of Main Hoon Na, singers’ names appeared right at the end. Worst still, segments were shot with the chaiwalas and dressmakers but not with singers. My family saw the film and felt betrayed. The same happened with Om Shanti Om. And here I am… Shah Rukh Khan’s voice! I conveyed my disappointment to Farah Khan and Shah Rukh Khan.
But he got Akon to sing for his film. Except for pubs and discotheques, where does one hear that song? But folks still fondly remember the Chalte Chalte, Yes Boss, Main Hoon Na numbers. It is these numbers that have immortalised Shah Rukh. I will never sing for him again.
What if he approaches you? Sorry bol do! When you can make up with Farah Khan whose husband tweeted rubbish about you, then there should be no problem More >
MM.com exclusively chats with Priya Wal, who shot to fame for essaying the role of the ‘red- haired’ tomboy from the popular show Remix.

We’ve seen the TV actress Priya Wal in several soaps like C.I.D., Yes Boss, Sun Yaar Chill Maar, Aek Chabhi Hai Paddos Mein, Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii and many more, but she agrees she’s got everyone sitting up and taking notice of her for essaying the role of Anvesha in her first show- Remix. She’s extremely excited to be a part of Ekta Kapoor’s Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani on Star One as her fans wanted to see her again in the tomboy avatar!
You played a role of a tomboy in the show Remix, which is similar to your current character – Misha – in the show Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani. Weren’t you scared of being typecast?
No, not at all. It’s very easy to typecast somebody, but the challenge is to take it up and do something different with it. There’s a lot more to every character than just playing a tomboy. Luckily, I don’t have to sport red hair this time!
You agree that your tomboy image goes very well with the audiences?
I was very lucky to be launched with the show Remix. I feel my tomboyish image got stuck in people’s mind. People More >

What do Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn have in common? SRK’s first super hit Baazigar, followed by Yes Boss, Baadshah, Josh, Main Hoon Na, Akshay Kumar’s Khiladi, Dhadkan and De Dana Dan, Aamir’s eternal favourite Akele Hum Akele Tum and Ajay Devgn’s Tezz Bullet Train are bankrolled by the Jain brothers, who are known in Bollywood folklore as the ‘invincible seven’.
SRK went on to do not one but five films with Venus Worldwide Entertainment Ltd. And today, as this company celebrates its silver jubilee year, they’ve scored a victory once again. Two of the biggest names, Ajay and Anil Kapoor, are all set to act in their 25th film — Tezz Bullet Train which also stars Kangna Ranaut, Mohanlal, Zayed Khan, Boman Irani and Sameera Reddy.
Says Priyadarshan who is directing the film, the shooting of which has commenced in London, “I had a choice of producers for Tezz Bullet Train. But I chose Ganesh Jain and Ratan Jain of Venus because my experience with them on Garam Masala, De Dana Dan and other films has been very sound. They are a director’s dream because they never interfere with the creative and yet they are able to take away every obstacle while filming. This makes them ideal producers.’’ Ajay agrees, “A producer is someone an actor must trust implicitly. Venus is a good banner.”
The men in white, Abbas-Mustan, have also reposed their complete faith in this More >

While on Akshay Kumar and Priyadarshan, their new outing, DE DANA DAN, has evoked tremendous interest within and outside the industry. The film is piping hot, to put it in simple and straightforward terms. The Akshay – Suniel – Paresh pairing with Priyadarshan evokes strong memories of HERA PHERI.
“DE DANA DAN is not HERA PHERI,” producer Ratan Jain clarifies, “Sure, the star cast is same and so is the director, but there’s no effort to make a sequel to HERA PHERI or be like HERA PHERI. DE DANA DAN has a completely different storyline and the character sketches are poles apart too.”
But comparisons with HERA PHERI are inevitable. “I am well aware of that, but the fact is that DE DANA DAN is far more entertaining than any Akshay – Priyadarshan movies made in the past. DE DANA DAN has Priyan and Akshay at their best,” the respected producer explains.
Ratan Jain, who has worked with Aamir [AKELE HUM AKELE TUM, MELA], SRK [BAAZIGAR, BAADSHAH, YES BOSS, JOSH and MAIN HOON NAA] and Akki regularly, is planning a project each with Abbas-Mustan and Priyadarshan in the near future. What happens to KHILADI 2? “That will be made with Abbas-Mustan and Akki only, but till we lay our hands on the right script, we wouldn’t like to announce the project,” he says.
