“I prefer Rahman the composer rather than Rahman the singer.” – A R Rahman

Written by on July 22nd, 2010

Good journalists know the golden rule of interviewing a celebrity- avoid the later interview slots. The celeb may be exhausted and uninterested or worse, cancel the interview. Hence, it was a bit unnerving when I had the last slot to interview the musical genius of this century. AR Rahman – known as the Mozart of […]

“I will continue to try my best to deliver great entertaining films.” – Akshay Kumar

Written by on April 27th, 2010

Audiences have flocked to the theatre to see his films, have loved his performances, have clutched their seats at his stunts, sighed at his hotness, fallen in love as his characters have fallen in love, and most definitely have laughed at him (in a good way of course). We are talking about one of the […]

“I feel love should be that little bit illogical.” – Kajol

Written by on February 10th, 2010

On a cold, muggy Friday morning, it is a pleasant surprise to meet Kajol, who was exactly the way I always pictured her in real life – fresh, bubbly and full of life. The raw Priya Chopra from Baazigar and the naive Simran Singh from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge is now a classy well-spoken woman […]

“It’s nothing I’ve done before and yet somewhere lies me in the film.” Karan Johar

Written by on February 9th, 2010

Being on Koffee with Karan was a bit different than what I thought it would be. Instead of Karan Johar grilling me with his famous rapid fire, it was I interviewing the ace director during his visit to London. He is promoting his latest film My Name is Khan (MNIK) all over the world. It’s […]

London Press Conference of My Name is Khan

Written by on February 5th, 2010

Karan Johar is sick of song sequences with gorgeous dancers, expensive sets and clothes which is rather contradictory to his body of work – Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Ghum and Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna. “Those were real emotions in an unreal ambience. I directed the song ‘Rock and Roll Soniye’ and I […]

Written by on February 4th, 2010

Can we just leave the film alone? This is Shah Rukh Khan‘s request to those threatening to stop the screening in India of his latest movie My Name is Khan releasing next week.

Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year

Written by on December 13th, 2009

It is a bit hard to not shrug off Rocket Singh-Salesman of the Year as a commercial popcorn flick with the Yashraj Films banner, similar on the lines of the disastrous, loud Dil Bole Hadippa. But where the difference lies between these two is the treatment. Director Shimit Amin makes sure it stays real, and […]

“Sexy…who me?” -Ranbir Kapoor

Written by on December 6th, 2009

“Sexy…who me?” That’s Ranbir Kapoor’s response to the compliment. This time it is by People magazine who have declared him to be the Sexiest Man Alive. Ranbir begs to differ. “There are a thousand things wrong with my face and body. I really don’t know what sexy is. I am confused as I don’t consider […]

Scene by Scene: Mohabbatein Climax

Written by on October 29th, 2009

Like many movie buffs my film tastes vary constantly. A Hollywood drama, a Govinda comedy and a Satyajit Ray masterpiece can all hold a place in my favourites, regardless of box office verdicts. Mohabbatein was not a runaway hit when it was released in 2001. The Times of India’s Khalid Mohammed gave it a two […]
