Daisy Irani, the well-known child artist of 1950s-60s, who has teamed up with children in her forthcoming movie Vroom, says she enjoyed working with kids but is keen to play Aamir Khan’s grandmother and Shah Rukh Khan’s mother on screen. “I want to play Aamir’s grandmother. He is my favourite. And if I get a chance to act in a Shah Rukh starrer, I would like to play his mother,” Daisy, 58, said in an interview.
Directed by Savin Tuscano and produced by Fox TV Studios for STAR Box Office, Vroom, about a car with artificial intelligence, is releasing soon. The film also stars Paintal, comedian Naveen Prabhakar and newcomers Gaurav Bajaj and Nina Sarkar. Talking about her role in the movie, she said, “I am playing a Parsi lady who is a neighbour of lead actor Gaurav Bajaj. She interferes in other people’s business. It was fun working in the movie as I liked my role and enjoyed it. Children will enjoy it because it is a blend of adventure, fantasy, special effects and humour.”
Asked that once a child artist herself, how did she feel working with children, Daisy said, “I love children and working in a film which is for them was a great experience. I have come a long way, played characters from a little girl to a grandmother. I have played most of the colours of a woman and it feels good.”
Daisy entered showbiz when she was just three years old — her first film was the 1955 movie Bandish. She appeared as a child artist in movies like Raj Kapoor’s Jagte Raho, Ashok Kumar-Meena Kumari starrer Ek Hi Raasta, Dilip Kumar-starrer Naya Daur and many others.
In 1965, she featured as a full-fledged actress in Rajendra Kumar and Sadhna starrer Arzoo. Content with her journey in cinema for over five decades, Daisy said, “I am really happy with the work I have done in so many years. Though the journey was tough, it was a nice experience. Everyone has ups and downs in their life and I am no exception. But I am satisfied and will never look back and say that I should have done that role.”

House turns heritage
The house of the legendary composer and music maestro Naushad Ali has become a heritage building.
The house where Naushad was born, in Lucknow, has been declared a protected monument and the haveli is also a part of the 36 point heritage walks of Lucknow.
The maestro, who passed away in 2006, is best known for his works in classics like Baiju Bawra and Mughal-E-Azam. Akbar Khan’s Taj Mahal: An Eternal Love Story, which released in 2005, became the last movie of his illustrious career.

Celebrating Tagore
To celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of Rabindranath Tagore, Subhash Ghai's company has produced a Bengali film Nauka Dubi, which has been directed by Rituparno Ghosh and is slated to release in August. Nauka Dubi stars Raima Sen, Riya Sen, Prasanjeet and Jeeshu Parna Sen, who are all established stars from the Bengali film industry.
After watching the film, Subhash Ghai said, ‘‘I loved the film when I saw the first cut of it. Rituparno Ghosh carries the sensitivities of Tagore’s classic story with great visuals, which inspired me to take this film onto a different level to reach out to maximum audiences including non Bengali audiences across the board. It is a very interesting love story with amazing performances by all four actors. This is one of the best films of Rituparno Ghosh.”
Subhash Ghai also produced Joggers’ Park, Iqbal and Rahul along with mass masala films like Apna Sapna Money Money and soon-to-be-released Hello Darling.
“Yes I like to produce both kind of cinema — for classes and masses as well,” said Subhash Ghai.

Lending his powerful voice
Kabir Bedi has done a voice over in Hindi for the role of Nizam, originally played by Sir Ben Kingsley in Prince of Persia — The Sands of Time. In India, the movie will be released in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
 Kabir Bedi recorded at the Sound & Vision dubbing studio recently for the film. Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer’s forthcoming movie Prince of Persia — The Sands of Time is releasing on May 28. It is from the team that brought the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy to the big screen.
The film is an epic action-adventure set in the mystical lands of Persia. A rogue prince (Jake Gyllenhaal) reluctantly joins forces with a mysterious princess (Gemma Arterton) and together, they race against dark forces to safeguard an ancient dagger capable of releasing the Sands of Time — a gift from the gods that can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world. It is directed by Mike Newell (credits include Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire).

Beauties at war
It has been recently reported that Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have
headed for splitsville, with Timberlake’s ex-girlfriend Cameron Diaz cited as the reason for the end of their relationship.
Justin is currently working with Diaz, 36, closely on a new movie in which Diaz plays a foul-mouthed, junior high teacher, who, after being dumped by her sugar daddy, begins to woo a colleague — played by Timberlake.
It had been reported that Biel was unhappy with her boyfriend working with Cameron whom he dated
for four years. Nevertheless, she recently gave the
project, which is said to include a love scene between Diaz and Timberlake, her best wishes.
However, Timberlake and Biel put on a show of unity this weekend where the couple appeared happy and content with each other as they took a walk on a lovely spring day in the Big Apple, before spending time playing basketball together at the Chelsea Piers, leaving the onlookers a bit confused about their split.
It’s not only the personal front where Biel has to compete with Diaz. Both the actresses have much-awaited action-packed movies releasing this June — The A-Team for Jessica Biel and Knight And Day for Cameron. Well, we will just have to wait and watch on who is declared the winner in this interesting cold war between the two bombshells!
