But three of my most favourite films Anupama, Devar and Phool Aur Patthar had Shashikala in very prominent roles,” recalls Dharamji. “She was my senior; she had done many films when I started my career. I think the first film we did together was Anpadh where Mala Sinha played the title role. The movie is remembered to this day for Madan Mohan Saab-Lataji’s melodies. I was a nervous semi-newcomer, Shashikala put me at ease. ‘Ae Dharam, aao hamare saath khana khao,’ she would ask me to join her for lunch during shooting. For a newcomer such warmth from a senior is never forgotten. She taught me to be nice to newcomers,” Dharamji. “She was typecast as a vamp.

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Features and Specials  
What significance does ‘Munni Badnaam Hui’ have to your career as a composer? Oh, a huge significance! The song did a lot for me and my career when I needed it the most. Jatin - Lalit, a significantly big brand of music separated in 2006 after the musical success of Fanaa. It was unfortunate and I knew it would have its big impact on me and the way ahead! I wanted to carry on doing music as instinctively I knew I had lots left in me. I also was acutely aware that when a brand breaks it’s almost impossible to restart it again. But I had no choice and lately had been very unhappy with working conditions with my brother Jatin. Did you get offers to compose music as a solo composer? Yes, after the split I did get films from Mukesh Bhatt (Showbiz) and Vikram Bhatt (Life Mein Kabhi Kabhi) and a few more smaller films. Though I consider my music good in them, the films didn’t work. But I somehow managed to keep my team together and kept working in different smaller films. How did ‘Munni Badn..

They shared screen space in one of their best films Anupama and Sharmila Tagore still remembers that experience with Shashikala. “Shashikalji was already a much-experienced actress whereas I was relatively new when we did Anupama together. It was Hrishida who cast her in a very positive role in Anupama because Hrishida always saw the good in every character. Otherwise Shashikalaji had been typecast as the negative woman, so much that I once heard that during an outdoor shooting the heroine was allowed to use the bathroom in a friendly local’s home, but not Shashikalaji. This is evidence of how convincingly she played the bad woman and how convinced the audience becomes on seeing the on-screen image. I remember once I was shooting on location. After the shot I unthinkingly took off my wig, and there was collective gasp among the onlookers,” recalls Sharmilaji.

Abhishek Bachchan's upcoming film The Big Bull is all set to release on April 8 on OTT.

However just a few months back, Hansal Mehta directed a web series titled Scam 1992 starring Pratik Gandhi, which was also based on the life of Harshad Mehta.

SCOOP: As Maharashtra goes under lockdown, Sooryavanshi won't release on April 30

12 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Last week, Bollywood Hungama had reported that Sooryavanshi, the much awaited film starring Akshay Kumar and directed by Rohit Shetty, might not be able to release on April 30, as scheduled, due to the rising Coronavirus cases. The second wave has been quite extreme and cases in Maharashtra especially are at a record high, inching close to the 60,000 mark. As a result, the state government last week decided to impose a night curfew in the state, from 8:00 pm to 7:00 am. When the cases kept increasing despite this new rule, the authorities then decided to take the harsh decision of declaring a lockdown-like situation till April 30. Even when the night curfew was in place in Maharashtra, it had become clear that releasing a film in such circumstances would be suicidal as post 6 pm shows were ruled out. Hence, it was no surprise that films like Chehre and Bunty Aur Babli 2 were indefinitely postponed. Now with a lockdown in place and cinema halls shut till the end of month, the cinema se..
