VIKRAMJEET VIRK'S TALENT REACHES NEW HEIGHT WITH IIFA NOMINATION

#VikramjeetVirk #IifaAwards #AwardNomination #Bollywood #TarunMansukhania ##Karnal #Nomination #DevoutSikh #Modelling #MovieCareer #Villains #Iifa #NegativeRoles

FEELS GOOD WHEN TALENT GETS SOME RECOGNITION


               Vikramjeet Singh Virk, a passionate actor with his eyes set on his goal
BORN INTO A SIMPLE FARMER'S FAMILY

Vikramjeet Singh Virk, a devout Sikh, was born into a simple Jatt farmer's family of Sukhwant Singh Virk in deep interiors of a relatively unknown village, Tharwa Majra about 30-32 km from Karnal city, Haryana set quite away from district roads. He is the youngest and single of four siblings (Two elder sisters and one brother) in the family who are settled in respective marriages. Like father like son, his elder brother, Sarbjeet Singh is taking care of the land as is the tradition of his family generation after generations.


GERMINATION OF MODELLING DREAMDuring his schooling, when he was only in his teens in 12th Std. he often got usual remarks from his classmates and friends for his good height and physique and that he could do well as a model with it. That's when he started toying with the idea of modelling career and began looking closely over his personality in mirror from a new angle & perspective. Filled with self admiration, this idea found roots in his heart and mind and shaped into his dream. Having thought of giving it a shot, he got his folio done with turban at Karnal city and started visiting Delhi secretly on and off to explore capital to see what the modelling scene was like there.


In those days there were no Sikh models so he had to crop his hair to get going. He lost great deal of peace over it though as he belonged to a religious family that believed strongly in traditional values. After mulling quite some time over it, for the love of modelling he decided to sacrifice his hair.

He got selected in first audition itself because of his huge stature. As luck would have it, on his 19th birthday, on 19th July 2003 he set off his modelling career with LAKME INDIA FASHION WEEK. His mother Harjinder Kaur and Father were deeply upset to see him with clipped hair especially his father. So much so he did not speak to his son for almost a year over this issue. He found it difficult to go through this period at that tender age of 18. Vikram who holds great respect for his family, let it settle down and went into it big time with far-famed people from fashion world for seven years between 2003-2010 and did some music videos too simultaneously.


JOURNEY AS AN ACTOR
As modelling leads eventually to Bollywood, he also moved to glitter town with a glint of new dream in his eyes and got noticed soon by talent scouts. His first film happened to be, Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey with Ashutosh Gowarikar followed by offers from down South for Malayalam and Telugu films. During his film stints, like an emotional fool, he landed up doing a Punjabi film which he realized later he should not have done and that particular mistake had given him a big lesson and made him careful as to what to do what not to. With dead determination he said he knows it well where he wants to be and he would leave no stone unturned for it.

     A SPECIAL NOTE FROM HIS DIRECTOR, TARUN MANSUKHANI TAGGED ON HIS FACEBOOK
LIFE AFTER IIFA NOMINATION Of course it feels good to see talent being nominated in some award category. The nomination for his south movie, Rudhramadevi was a little surprise to him though he honestly confessed he is capable of doing far better than what he did in Rudhramadevi, as an actor. He was shooting for his new underproduction DRIVE, a movie produced by Karan Johar and being directed by Tarun Mansukhani at that time when he got an invitation call for the event but unfortunately could not get away to attend it because of his prior commitment to Dharma Production. Feeling a little apologetic for not being able to offer him time to attend his first big event, the production organized a surprise celebration for his nomination on the set.

        FOR FITNESS FREAK VIKRAM, REGULAR GYMING IS INSEPARABLE PART OF HIS LIFE

                                            BELIEVES IN MANTRA, HEALTH IS REAL WEALTH





FAVORITE HEROHe admired many but he spoke a few special words for Sunny Deol whom he admired a lot in GHAYAL, DAMINI, and said he loves to watch his GADAR whenever it is aired on channel. Every body knows it turned out to be block buster of that year.


FAVORITE HEROINEHe likes most of the leading actresses as he respects women a lot but mentioned Madhuri Dixit is the ultimate heroine who he believes is extremely talented, a complete actor in every sense and the other heroine he holds admiration for is Meenakshi Sheshadri as he was moved to watch her performances in some of her best movies?

FAVORITE FILMHis favorite English film is "300" and his Bollywood Flick he loves to see is GADAR ek premkatha, a beautiful period love story set in pre-partition, partition and post partition.

FAVORITE DIRECTOREvery director has his own way of working. He has had wonderful experiences working with different different directors from Bollywood and down south because every movie he has done so far have given him something to learn from. His favorite director however is Rajkumar Santoshi whose films he admires a lot since they often touched him emotionally and also for the way he is able to extract the best performances out of his actors.

IDOL IN NEGATIVE ARENAHis idol in negative role is none but Amrish Puri and had a strong desire to see him face to face but did not get the opportunity. He wished to see two more persons Dara Singh and singer Jagjeet Singh. Since he knew Vindu he got a chance to see Dara Singh but could not get to see Jagjeet Singh.




OPTING FOR NEGATIVE ROLES
He attributes it to his giant 6.3ft personality due to which he always had a strong belief he could do well especially in negative field. But an actor is an actor he said, be it negative or positive it hardly makes any difference to him.

LOVE LIFEAs a devout Sikh he goes to Gurudwara everyday and sticks to certain ethics and principles in his life. And he strictly follows them and can never be a shrewd-filmy-type person. He is what he is. There is no place for any fake pretension in his life. What is more, the family traditional values mean a lot to him. He is a one woman man and would have no other female in his life after he decides to settle with his life partner in an arranged marriage of course.

He feels extremely lucky to be part of an ambitious upcoming historical project, a huge period film, BATTLE OF SARAGARHI to be directed by, his favorite director, Rajkumar Santoshi.

POSTERS OF BOLLYWOOD THAT DIDN'T LOOK GOOD

#ControversialPosters #VulgarPosters #MoviePosters #IshqJunoon #PosterDesigns #Vulgarity #ProducerAnujSharma #DirectorSanjaySharma 

BOLLYWOOD POSTERS THAT WERE MIRED IN CONTROVERSY...

NEW POSTER THAT IS UNDER ATTCK BEING BURNT BY SHIV SAINIKS
Shiv Sainiks took strong objections to a new film billed as first ever threesome movie, Ishq Junoon's posters to such an extent that they went ahead in anger to burn its posters and even lodged complaint against the producers. People had experienced such controversies in the past well. There have been scores of films from Bollywood like RAM TERI GANGA MAILI, PK, DUNNO Y, JISM-2, DIRTY POLITICS etc. that had witnessed such incidents post and prior to their releases that had supposedly vulgar and outrageous contents in their posters' designs and films. Sometimes controversies bring in lots of money at the box office. Let's wait and watch what happens to this film after release.



JISM-2 OBJECTIONABLE POSTER


Bollywood's new movie that is under assault by Political Party, Shiv Sena, has been produced by Anuj Sharma and directed by his younger brother, Sanjay Sharma. The director's earlier film, Dunno Y was also attacked at the time of its release due to its objectionable contents.

Meanwhile, the said film's director Sanjay Sharma reacted to his new film's controversial eruption justifying his posters. “My film Ishq Junoon is based on a new and bold theme that has not been explored by others and that is what is being conveyed to the targeted audience through the posters of my film. And what one sees in the posters are the integral part of my film which has been duly approved by the censor authorities of this country. I don’t think people should resort to such unlawful moral policing to attain political mileage out of this. This is what I feel about the entire episode that has erupted against the poster of my film.”

The polemic flick, ISHQ JUNOON is slated to release tomorrow in theaters on November 11.

FIRST EVER THREESOME BOLLYWOOD MOVIE...

#IshqJunoon #ShantketanEntertainments #SexSells #BollywoodMovies #IndianCensorBoard #ProducerAnujSharma #IshqJunoonMovieTrailer #Debauchery #Fun

EVEN TODAY, SEX SELLS LIKE HOTCAKES IN INDIA! 











In the times when a few Bollywood production houses have already made a few flicks with Sunny Leone in lead, a popular porn star, turning a new leaf, Shantketan Entertainments also has produced a new stunning sex-laced, ISHQ JUNOON movie and openly publicized it in an extremely bold manner terming it as first ever threesome movie from Bollywood. As we all know, the tabooed word THREESOME is commonly used and displayed in porn movies readily available online. The sleazy sex-oozing posters of the movie and the most presumptuous picturization of one of its songs already out online to attract the viewers suggest a lot as to how hot it is going to be categorically for sex-starved 
audience.

Anuj Sharma is a well established producer in Bollywood with many films to his credit for over two decades. Ishq Junoon, shot majorly in Manali, is a youth-oriented Romantic musical thriller, directed by his younger brother, Sanjay Sharma. To get the best and melodious numbers for this movie, Anuj Sharma had taken five music composers, Sonu Nigam, Jeet Ganguli, Anjan Bhattacharya, Ankit Tiwarid and a new talent, Vardan Singh on board.

However, it may be noted that THE INDIAN FILMS CENSOR BOARD has used its scissors on bold sequences
 of the film to tone it down. Recently, the production house has released its new poster online and seems to suggest adequately through its publicity that this film wont let down the targeted viewers like many other films recently released with similar content that have garnered good chunk of money at the box office. Tomorrow, the people will get to see its first promo online as I heard it being released around 12 pm. Opening dialogue will stun every viewer as the heroine says, "I AM NOT INTERESTED IN SHORT TERM ENJOYMENT, I AM LOOKING FOR LIFE LONG DEBAUCHERY'S FUN."

THIS SHOWS HOW GOLDEN-HEARTED ACTOR, AMJAD KHAN WAS...

#AmjadKhan #Naqab #DirectorRajKhosla #GreatActors #KindHeartedness #InderKhosla #ActorAmjadKhan #BollywoodActors

GREATNESS OF AMJAD KHAN ACTOR IS STILL IN THE HEARTS OF MANY IN BOLLYWOOD...


Amjad khan, The great actor and a great soul!

Kindheartedness is an ULTIMATE EMOTION you feel when you are helpful and sensitive to others. There have been several incidents wherein it abundantly reflects that Amjad Khan (Sholay Fame Actor) was a gem of a person and also a golden-hearted person. Today fortunately, I learnt a new episode that shows how great he was and felt like to put it on this blog. 


INDER KHOSLA THEN
                         
INDER KHOSLA NOW


Inder Khosla, Chief Assistant director and also a nephew of great film maker Raj Khosla, who has been one of the most celebrated film makers of India. Unfortunately, NAQAB turned out to be his last film as Raj Khosla left us on June 9th, 1991. Anybody who knows little bit of history of Bollywood would certainly know about him as he had given series of hits after hits to Indian audience based on different themes. 



                   Naqab, directed by                        Director, Raj Khosla
             Raj Khosla

In year 1990, it so happened during the making of movie, NAQAB, Inder was working as chief assistant director at the time. After, DO FANTOOSH, TERI MAANG SITARON SE BHAR DHOON, it was third movie of Inder with Amjad khan. Amjad had so much respect and affection for Inder that he wouldn't call him by name but GURUJI. He would often tell Raj Khosla that he would like to give the shot only if Guruji is on the set. After taking brief about the shot from Raj Khosla, Amjad would say that he has understood what he wants but still he would ask Guruji to perform first then only he would give the shot. This reflects how wonderful the relationship was between the two, Inder khosla and Amjad khan.

Not only Amjad there were many other actors like, Amitabh Bachchan (Dostana), Shatrughan Sinha (Maati Mange khoon, mera dost mera dushan, dostana), Sanjeev kumar (Daasi), Rekha (Daasi), Sharmila tagore, Farah (Naqab), Rishi Kapoor (Naqab), Nutun (Main Tulsi Tere Angan ki, Teri Mang Sitaron se Bhar Doon) and Padmini Kolhapure (Teri maang...) etc who would also ask Inder to perform first to get an idea what Raj Khosla was looking for. 

It is very significant and relevant to add here that Inder being a member of Cintaa (Cine Actors Association) had also begun his journey in multiple films as an actor with Raj Khosla and other film makers. He gives credit to only and only Raj khosla for his acting and directorial skills. At the time of Naqab, Amjad Khan was also holding the significant position of Cintaa's president. 

One day, during the shoot of movie, "Naqab" Amjad asked Inder why should he only remain a member of Cintaa, why doesn't he go for lifelong membership. It was a good advice given and Inder grabbed it right away and became the lifetime member of Cintaa and still remembers Amjad khan fondly  for his valuable tip and kind gesture. Around that period, Amjad used to come to set in his Ambassador car, Inder says. Later, he offered that if he bought a new car he would like to give his Ambassador Car to Inder. He fulfilled his promise giving a great surprise to Inder. 

Inder who is still working in Bollywood in direction, holds great respect for him till date and often fondly recollects those wonderful moments spent with him. WHAT A GREAT AND GENEROUS ACTOR HE WAS, Inder concludes. An actor giving his car to an assistant director was something unheard of and that is the very reason I wrote this special post for.

Mumtaz & Rajesh Khanna in DO RASTE, a block buster of the year from the director Raj Khosla
Mumtaz and Rajesh Khanna, (popularly known as Kaka in bollywood), were one of the most charming pairs of Bollywood Cinema. In the prime days of their career, they happened to do a series of films together and most of them were block busters. Raj Khosla who had a great sense of music since every film of his had hit numbers in it. Also he has been known for his unique and beautiful presentation of the songs in all his films. I believe that was the most glorious period of Indian Cinema. 



Rajesh Khanna & leading girl, Nanda from movie, ITTEFAQUE


Super Star, Rajesh Khanna and iftikar from B R Chopra's movie Ittefaque

The above mentioned film, Ittefaque was also songless like earlier Kanoon from B R Chopra. There are different opinions with regard to the fate of this film at the box office since some people claim it was flop and some assert it was a hit movie. It's believed that B R Chopra's grandson is toying with the idea to remake  "Ittefaque".


Add caption
The above photo depicts Vijay Hangal, former bollywood photographer with his father A. K Hangal. He had been a great actor from stage who switched to film later and rendered the best performances in scores of his films. Born into a Kashmiri Pandit family, they say he was a tailor basically in Peshawar, Pakistan and after migration to Bombay he took interest in theatre activities and joined, IPTA, Indian People's Theatre Association. He was at the prominent post of National President for IPTA at the time of his death.1966 to 2005 he had acted in more than 200 movies. It would be a news to many here that he had been a freedom fighter too during independence struggle of India.
