Some people’s advice will only add vice to your life

Delhi-6

The carpet was set, the barricades grounded, and the security tight. But nothing deterred girls to hoot with the highest tempo to shake hands, express their love and catch a glimpse of their bodyguard-clouded-star Abhishek Bachchan at the red-carpet premiere of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s ‘Delhi-6’ releasing Friday. Women from all age groups – married, college going and school going girls – filled the atmosphere with an electrifying energy to meet Abhsihek at PVR Priya here Thursday night.
‘Abhishek I love you’, ‘Abhishek marry me’, ‘Abhishek, you are the best’ were a few of the slogans the fair-sex aficionados couldn’t stop shouting when the whole star cast of ‘Delhi-6’ arrived at the event. ‘I have been here since the last three hours and I am not leaving the place until I shake hands with Abhishek,’ said Richa Yadav, a Class 12 student from DPS, Mathura Road, who finally managed to capture pictures of her star from the least distance across the barricade. Shouted a gang of eight girls from Delhi University: ‘Abhishek, you have to pick one from us. We won’t let you go.’ The actor himself was in a fix at the response. ‘It’s mind blowing. It’s amazing. I love Delhi and the turn out of the people here is fantastic. I hope it remains the same in theatres as well,’ said Abhishek, clad in a jet-black three-piece suit.
Written and directed by Mehra, the UTV produced film also stars Sonam Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Prem Chopra, Waheeda Rehman and Atul Kulkarni – who were also present at the do. Also present at the event were a bevy of Bollywood stars including, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Jaya Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Kunal Kapoor and movie’s producer Ronnie Screwala.

Slum Dog millionnare music by A.R.Rahmaan

Slum dog Millonnare

Maestro makes it to Hollywood again. This time Bollywood’s super singer Sukhwinder has recorded a song for Danny Boyle’s film Slum Dog Millionaire. Starring Irfan Khan and Anil Kapoor, its music is given by AR Rahman. “Lyrics of the song were amazing. It is written by Gulzaar saab and music is naturally peppy, the way all Rahman songs are.I loved singing ‘Jai Ho’ and I must have sung the song so many times that eventually Rahman got really perplexed. Now they are wondering who would edit all the versions and which version is the best,” laughs Sukhwinder.

Film is based on a true story, and it’s about a kid from the slums of Mumbai, who has nothing – he’s ill educated, he’s illiterate – and he goes on the Hindi version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire’ and wins it. It has tongue-in-cheek humor. This film is written by Simon Beaufoy.

As for Sukhwinder Singh he is all set to ride the Hollywood wave after winning over Indian audience with his voice and melody. His other Hollywood venture as a music director and singer is Steven Spielberg’s next film.

For this film Sukhwinder is recording a ‘kutch’ song. “I chose folk because it will stand out in the crowd.

I refused to take any techno music because Hollywood is way ahead in it. We need to have our own flavor and make our mark with what is ours.”
