Promos, Trailers and Friends
A couple of weeks ago we got a glimpse of Ranbir Kapoor's much awaited Rocket Singh-Salesman of the Year which is to be released on December 11th. The film is directed by Shimit Amin (of Chak De India fame), written by Jaideep Sahni, produced by Aditya Chopra and the music's by Salim-Suleiman. The movie stars Ranbir Kapoor (and people are claiming it's going to be his best role yet)Shazahn Padamsee, daughter of famed Alyque Padamasee (famous Indian-theater personality), Sharon Prabhakar, also a theater personality, a pop singer and co-star Shazahn's mummy-dearest and BEST OF ALL GAUHAR KHAN aka the love of my life. Gauhar is a model, sister of famous TV personality Nigaar Khan but probably most famous for being a contestant in Jhalak Dikhlaja (she placed second, though we all know she deserved first!).
Of course we can't have a hyped upcoming movie without a side dish of gossip so here's what's the latest for this film. Well, to be honest, whoever is doing the PR work isn't really generating anything interesting except that Shazahn and Gauhar are at loggerheads (did I use that properly?) over who plays the 'lead' actress. The film doesn't even call for a lead actress. Shazahn is opposite of Ranbir, but only shot for four days whereas Gauhar's role called for a four-month shoot. I hope somewhere in that shoot Gauhar got a badass dance number, though it's not likely.
Anyway, here is a theatrical trailer which released some time ago and a promo that released this past week. Enjoy!
The ending is so hilarious/cute.
I get a very "Jame Raho" from Taare Zameen Par feeling with the whole 'always on the run' angle.
Doesn 't Ranbir as a sardar ji look amazing? I'm a sucker for facial hair, maybe that's why.
Next we have Chance Pe Dance starring Shahid Kapoor and Genelia D'Souza, directed by Ken Ghosh (no wonder Shahid's in this film), produced by Ronnie Screwala, music by Adnan Sami, Sandeep Shirodkar and Ken Ghosh himself. It's expected to release on Jan. 15th. It's about the struggle to become a famous actor. Not in a 'Luck By Chance' sort of way but in a typical fun unrealistic Bollywood sort of way. I hope we get to see a lot of dancing Shahid and spared the horror of a dancing Genelia. Just check out the trailer (came out a few weeks ago so you may have already caught it):
