Perfecting his moves

EXCITED: Darsheel SafaryActor Darsheel Safary has learnt a lot working on his upcoming film, Disney’s Zokkomon.

 A source says the child actor has done many of the spectacular action sequences and stunts, all by himself, under the guidance of William Ong, who is the stunt director of the legendary Jackie Chan.

The source also says that with this film, the audience will discover a new side of Darsheel. “In order to perfect his moves, Darsheel trained for months with international stunt director William Ong, who has worked with the legendary Jackie Chan.” The stunt man was quite impressed with the child actor’s dedication to get everything right for the film.

When asked about his experience working with William Ong, Darsheel enthused, “I loved doing the action sequences. I am thrilled to see myself as Zokkomon. All the special effects and action sequences are something I haven’t done before.”

The summer release is an action-packed family extravaganza. It is a unique adventure of a brave ordinary boy who meets unexpected challenges and rises as a super hero. All about bravery and courage, the film is packed with exciting action sequences and strong family values. Directed by Satyajit Batkal, Darsheel is the main lead along with veteran actor Anupam Kher and actress Manjari Fadnis. Zokkomon hits theatres on April 22.

Classic tunes remixed

Old Hindi chartbusters have always been a favourite amongst movie-buffs and surprisingly, they continue to enjoy the same popularity among today’s generation as well. The remixed versions of old songs like Dum Maro Dum and Pyar Do Pyar Lo are gaining popularity among youngsters.

Film-maker Sajid Khan, whose last release Housefull had the remixed version of an old Hindi song, Apni To Jaise Taise, agrees and says, “It was a really popular number and by remixing it and giving it a more contemporary feel, we have only made it more popular. As much as people would like to debate on this, songs are an extremely integral part of a movie. And it was a great club dance number. The biggest selling point of any chartbuster is the fact that it appeals to the new generation. I am game for another remix.”
