Interview: Dhanush & Akshara talk about ‘Shamitabh’

Eros International’s Shamitabh is the latest flick to hit UK cinemas. 

The film stars the legendary Amitabh Bachchan as never seen before, with south Indian star Dhanush and newcomer Akshara Haasan.

Director R Balki (Cheeni Kum and Paa), created the story as a gift for the veteran actor on his 70th birthday, and has spent the past two years bringing his vision to life. He says of the film: “This films is a homage to a voice that over the past 40 years has become instantly recognisable the world over. The question is… who is the true star, the voice or the actor it belongs to?

Dhanush, Akshara Hassan in London Shamitabh (2)Talking to BollyNewsUK in London, Dhanush and Akshara spoke about filming Shamitabh in the English capital, the film and much more…

It is the first time that both of you are promoting a Hindi film in London. How has it been so far?
Dhanush: (Laughs) It is cold.

You filmed scenes for the movie in the capital too…
Dhanush: I love coming to London. It is one of my most favourite cities in the world. It’s the same feeling for me whether I come here for a shoot or vacation. It’s a great city and I really love being here.
Akshara: It was my first shoot abroad. It was really interesting and I loved it. It was an amazing experience, also because it was new for me. It was interesting to see how people were reacting while watching the shooting. We were just going ahead and performing our scenes.

The trailer doesn’t really give away much…
Dhanush: The film is about three different individuals and their qualities. One of them (the character played by Akshara) brings together the other two (Dhanush and Amitabh Bachchan). Every character in the film has something that the other doesn’t have. We how success comes into the frame and then ego enters. The clash of egos, that is what pretty much the film is about.

There were reports that you were offered many movies. Why did you choose Shamitabh as your first film?
Akshara: I didn’t take up the earlier offers because I wasn’t ready to be an actor at that point of time.  I was exploring dance and different opportunities at that time, primarily focusing on dancing. Therefore, I didn’t start acting earlier.  It took me a while to come to this place where I decided to be an actor. I didn’t start acting earlier purely because I wasn’t ready. Shamitabh came to me shortly after I decided to be an actor. I fell in love with the film and the role.

South Indian films are now regularly being remade in Bollywood. Is it a concious decision for you to do something new when you work in Hindi movies e.g.  Raanjhana and now Shamitabh?
Dhanush: I am actually not thinking about such factors. I just want to be a part of a good script. I am not against remakes. It’s not that just the Hindi film industry is remaking Tamil or Telegu films. They also remake Hindi films. We share scripts and movies among us, which is really great.  There is nothing wrong about it. Personally, I am not a big fan of remaking movies because I would like to avoid unnecessary comparisons. It is also always a great feeling when you create something original. If the film is great and the script is good, I don’t mind remakes. I would just prefer an original film.

Dhanush, Akshara Hassan in London Shamitabh (4)How do you deal with comparisons since you both have family members in the industry and comparisons are bound to happen?
Akshara: I have been brought up in a way where I have my own identity. I feel that helps me. I feel it would let me take my family legacy forward while creating my own space as Akshara. You can’t avoid comparisons. I deal with it by creating my own identity, working hard and be focused.
Dhanush:  I have never heard anybody compare me with my father-in-law. There is reason to compare a beginner like me with a legend like Rajinikanth.  It’s not fair because he is an icon and I am a huge fan and will always be. Any actor who grew up watching his movies will have mild similarities in the way they act. His attitude, mannerism and modulation are in our system. If at all, there is a silly comparison, I would take it as a huge compliment.

You learnt Hindi for Raanjhana. In Shamitabh, Amitabh Bachchan’s voice is an integral part of the story. Was it more difficult this time around because of that?
Dhanush: I am still trying my level best to learn the language. It was a great experience working with Amitji. He made us feel comfortable. We learnt a lot by just sharing screen space with him. We all know that he has a powerful majestic voice. To perform for his voice was a big challenge and to carry his voice on these tiny shoulders was a big responsibility. I tried my best and also tried stay original. Hopefully I have done a convincing job and hopefully people will like what they see and hear.

Shamitabh is in UK cinemas now.

Interview: “The UK is like home to me” – Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani Deepika Padukone is on a high after the success of Race 2 and has her hands full with projects opposite the likes of Ranbir Kapoor, Shah Rukh Khan, Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor.

Her latest release is Karan Johar’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani also starring her ex-beau Ranbir Kapoor. After playing the sultry Aleena in Race 2, Padukone will now be seen as Naina Talwar in Ayan Mukherji’s second directorial venture, out in UK cinemas this Friday.

Naina Talwar is a simple, good-natured and extremely focused girl. Frustrated by the restrictions she needs to put on herself to achieve her dreams of being a doctor; she impulsively decides to go on a trekking trip to Manali to give herself a break.

Through the film, Naina transforms from the restricted claustrophobic person she thought she was to a free-spirited woman with a newfound love for herself and comfort within her choices. She is strong and dependable and stands firmly for rooted family values.

In a chat with Bollywood Reporter Sunny Malik, the actress talks about Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and much more…

 

Deepika Padukone in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani - UK Release (1)There was a lot of speculation as to why you cancelled your London trip to promote Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Would you like to clarify?
Ok. So what happened is that I was filming (for Chennai Express) in Munnar. It’s a hill station in the south of India near Kerala. I was supposed to finish that schedule and come back to Mumbai on the same night and then leave for London. But it rained and we had three days of non-stop rain where we were shooting. Our schedule was delayed by three days and I could’t leave a unit of two hundred fifty people waiting there. I had to sacrifice the London bit of the promotions to finish my commitment.

Do you feel it has been really difficult for you to manage everything because you are working on several projects simultaneously?
Honestly, now that that phase is over, I can definitely say that it was very, very difficult. But more importantly, more than physically, it was more mentally and emotionally draining for me. I am glad that the particular phase is over now, more or less as Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is up for release and I have also wrapped up Chennai Express (also starring Shah Rukh Khan) which will release on 8th August. The only thing I am focusing on right now is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Ram Leela.

You have always said that you wanted to work in a Dharma Productions film. What was your reaction when Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, produced by Karan Johar, was offered to you?
I was absolutely over the moon. I remember it started when Ayan Mukherji, the director, called me one night and said that he wants to take me out for dinner. We went out for dinner, just the two of us. I had been hearing from people that he was considering casting me but unless you actually hear from your director, you can never really believe these things. We discussed this project over dinner. He said that he was writing this film and was writing it with me in mind. He said that his ideal cast would be Ranbir and I and I was more than happy. I was sold. I told him that I will do this film for you. That’s the amount of faith I have in him as a director. I have known him from the time he was doing Wake Up Sid, actually even before that, when he was narrating the film to Ranbir. I have known him very closely throughout that entire process. I had decided back then itself that I would like to work with him if he ever offered me a movie. The script came to me much later. Of course, he gave me a one line of what Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani will be about. There was no bound script at that time.

 

Deepika Padukone in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani - UK Release (4)Ranbir said that he wasn’t aware that the character was written keeping you in mind. There was also a lot of speculation that other actresses were being considered for the film. Was that amusing?
Of course it is amusing. But you know where you stand for a particular project. You know whether you have been approached or not. You know the other names that are floating around. So of course, one finds it amusing but at the end of the day, you have to have faith in yourself and in your director. I mean, it makes for good speculation in the news but at the end, the film belongs to the person who eventually does it.

Do you agree with Ranbir’s statement that it’s easy to hide behind characters and difficult to portray a more real person in films?
I know that he has been saying this in his interviews. For me that was a surprise because I prefer doing roles that I identify with. I feel that it’s a very, very interesting observation but even though he says that he finds it difficult, I really enjoy doing these roles. For me, Naina Talwar is me. I was the reference point. I did not have to research. I did not have to observe anyone else. I just had to be me.

 

Is it not scary that people may find out more about the real Deepika Padukone through such a role?
I don’t know if it’s a scary thing or not. In that sense, you have to trust your director. You have to believe that he will present you in the best manner possible. But no, not at all as I am very comfortable with the person I am. Of course, I have my flaws and insecurities but I was more than happy to use myself as a reference point for this character.

Deepika Padukone in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani - UK Release (3)The film is also shown from your side of the story. I think the story is narrated through a diary your character wrote. Can you tell us more about that?
I don’t really want to get into how the story plays out and reveal more about the screenplay but the film is not just about the love story between me and Ranbir. It is about these four friends, how they meet, separate and meet again. It’s also about your relationship with your parents.

 

The film also looks very commercial and razzmatazz which is very different from what Ayan Mukherji has done before. Were you concerned or surprised?
I wasn’t concerned at all. As far as the film goes, even though it looks very commercial it is very real and the scenes are pretty much in the same space how Ayan had directed Wake Up Sid. The only thing that took me by surprise were the songs. I couldn’t believe that Ayan wanted to use such commercial songs in his movie. I had expected the songs to be slightly different a little bit like Wake Up Sid’s music. The trailer has been cut in a certain way where the film may seem very commercial and glittery with a lot of dance and music. But the film as a whole is very different from that.


Eros International is also releasing the film in new territories like Russia and Israel. Your film, Cocktail, restarted the trend of Hindi movies in Russia. How does that feel?

It feels really special. I never thought that my movie would restart the trend of Hindi movies in Russia. When I think about Hindi films in Russia, I think about Rajnikanth or Raj Kapoor movies. It feels great that Cocktail started the trend again and now Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani will release there too. I hope they show the film the same love.

 

Deepika Padukone in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani - UK Release (2)As the film is being released in new territories, do you feel that Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is a film that will be appreciated by non-Hindi speaking audiences in the west and has the possibility of “crossing over”?
See, I don’t like terming films as commercial, art films or films that can cross over. I feel that if a film is well made, it will be appreciated. I also feel that Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is a universal film. I don’t feel that Hindi movies are just for a Hindi speaking audience. Our films are today reaching a wider audience because they are relatable and are being liked by people not understanding the language we speak in our films.

 

What are your expectations from the UK audience for Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani as your films have done better here than Ranbir Kapoor’s films?
(Laughs) I’m grateful that my films have done well in the UK. The UK is like home to me and I miss being there. I started my journey right in Leicester Square, London at the premiere of Om Shanti Om. Then I have shot for films like Love Aaj Kal, Housefull, Desi Boyz and Cocktail in London and in the UK. It’s a special place for me and it will always remain so. I hope the audience in the UK enjoys the movie and show the same love to the film as they have to some of my other films.

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is released in UK cinemas on 31st May 2013.
