Vicky Kaushal has made his first attempt to act in the horror genre with Bhoot: Part One – The Haunted Ship. The film is loosely based around the ship that mysteriously landed on Juhu Beach back in 2011. Vicky says he has not watched any horror film after Paranormal Activity in 2007 and this film was nowhere on his radar but the director Bhanu Pratap Singh’s conviction to sell the story had him floored. Talking about his experience of working in a horror film, Vicky Kaushal says that there is a lot of science involved in this genre. There are a lot of tricks you play to make it look convincing. The film is also nowhere close to a typical Dharma film. Vicky elaborated that it may be a Bollywood film, but its aesthetics are that of a Hollywood film.

There are few things such as a well-orchestrated fight scene that enthralls the audiences and takes the action sequences in a movie a notch higher. The makers of Baaghi 3 got creative and created a set only to destroy it later. No matter how compelling and narrative a character is or the story is, we all enjoy good brawling scenes that can make our jaw fall straight to the floors. Fight on top of speeding trains may sound like old school but action scenes involving choppers still invigorates thrill. For a particular sequence, makers of Baaghi 3 got 4 real army fighter choppers and 5 tanks to accentuate the sequence and give it a more relatable angle. The makers have paid a hefty amount for these helicopters as they were to completely get destroyed post the shoot. Adding to this, they also created the Dead city set that took them 3 months for completion. The set was later destroyed to pieces once the action sequence was done. It takes months of hard work and lots of money behind the s..

Abhishek Bachchan is currently facing the biggest challenge of his career. He plays stock-market influencer Harshad Mehta who rocked the Indian economy in the 1990s and was transformed from small-town Gujarati stockbroker to an iconic financial wizard. Abhishek is fully into the role. His rigorous research has taken him back to what was known in those days as Harshad Mehta’s golden era. Says a source close to Abhishek, “He has never worked so hard on any of his roles before except maybe when he played Dhirubhai Ambani in Mani Ratnam’s Guru. Coincidentally, in both the biopics that Abhishek has done so far, he has played celebrated Gujarati game changers, Dhuribhai and now Harshad Mehta.” As part of his preparation for the Harshad Mehta role, Abhishek has been practicing the Gujarati accent. The role also requires him to pile on the kilos, since Harshad Mehta was the podgy type. The Big Bull is not the first Hindi film to recreate Harshad Mehta’s tumultuous rise to iconic heights.
