A dynamic duo

Goan musician Remo Fernandes was thrilled after his recently concluded two concert tour with  the maestro from Madras, A R Rahman.

The talented artiste was performing live with Rahman for the first time. “I was taken up to centre stage on a hydraulic lift surrounded by smoke and laser lights and there was
Rahman waiting for me, tearing out blazing riffs on his keyboards. I joined him in a jugalbandi with my vocal improvisations and we eventually broke into Daud, a song which I had sung for a movie he had composed for, with the full live band behind us and
incredible visuals flashing all around us. The experience was awesome,” gushes Remo.

A case of sour grapes?

On his return from the Cannes Film Festival, Saif Ali Khan criticised Indian stars for making a big deal about being invited to walk the international red carpet. Saif, who was at Cannes as the face of a liquor brand, insisted there is no glory in being invited or photographed just because the brand you are endorsing is a sponsor at the festival. The actor said the aim should be to get there on the merit of our movies.

But now it appears that Saif’s criticism may have something to do with his own sour experience at the festival. Sources say the actor turned up almost an hour late on the red carpet the evening he was meant to walk for Chivas Regal. Despite repeated requests from the public relations representative to be on time, Saif didn’t show up until much later. Star entries on the red carpet are indeed timed specially in order to gain maximum mileage from the world media. But with Saif arriving after the stars of Woody Allen’s opening night film, shutterbugs showed little interest in photographing him.

Different: Aamir KhanGoing a step further

Aamir Khan is known to boycott all popular movie awards. However, this time, the actor-producer has gone a step ahead as he didn’t enter his film for nation’s top film honour either — the National Awards.

When Do Dooni Chaar (2010) was announced as the Best Hindi Film at the 58th edition of the National Awards earlier this month, first time director Habib Faisal admitted that he had expected Aamir Khan Productions’ Peepli Live to bag the honour.

But surprisingly, Aamir had not submitted the Anusha Rizvi-directed movie for the award.

A realistic take

The life of late Sanjay Gandhi, a controversial figure in the Indian politics, is now being made into a film.

Director Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan, of Lahore fame, is all set to make the film based on the life of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s younger son. The untitled film will go on the floors after Chauhan completes his science fiction film, Anghaat.

From billboards to muses

K Bikram singh, who has written a book on painter Maqbool Fida Husain states, “Indian artist M F Husain’s undying passion for art was also manifest in a long love affair with cinema. From painting billboards to designing movie invitations to making films, he had a colourful tryst with Bollywood.”

Husain came to Mumbai in 1935 in search of a career in art.  “He probably made the billboard for K L Saigal’s Devdas (1935). In the 1940, artist N S Bendre spotted talent in Husain, then an unknown Bollywood hoarding painter, and urged him to join the real art work. After that he associated himself with New Talkies and then took off
independently.”  His experience in painting billboards reflected in his paintings later.

He used broad strokes and strong colours, usually used in hoarding paintings. That was his first brush with cinema and the fascination was to last 75 years. From Madhuri Dixit, Tabu to Vidya Balan, Amrita Rao and more recently, Anushka Sharma, he even had many muses.
