Anees Bazmee was recently stationed in Delhi shooting for his Harman BawejaGenelia D'SouzaNana Patekar starrer IT'S MY LIFE. While he goes through the grind of getting his next film in place, his SINGH IS KINNG has already crossed 75 crores at the box office just from India. While this has made Bazmee one of the most sought after film makers in Bollywood, he acknowledges the fact that his actors have never failed to delivered whenever they have faced the camera for his films.
"Look at Akshay, he now has two of his biggest ever successes with me", says an elated Bazmee who is making a name for himself by working with the best in the business, "Even though WELCOME and SINGH IS KINNG had him play two completely contrasting characters, he did it with full conviction. I truly believe these have been his best performances."
Talking about the other actors who have got quite some accolades working in his films, Bazmee reminds, "Nana (Patekar) was a riot in WELCOME and after a long time he came in a film where ha had a principal role to play. Now he is working with me in IT'S MY LIFE where he is again an important character. Anil (Kapoor) had come up with his two of his best performances with me NO ENTRY and WELCOME. Ajay's psycho act in DEEWANAPAN is still noticed while Salman Khan made a huge impression even though he had a relatively small part to play in NO ENTRY."
How about Fardeen Khan with whom he had worked in NO ENTRY?
"Till date quite a few people from both within and outside the industry acknowledge that Fardeen's best act ever has been in NO ENTRY. Even Feroz (Khan) bhai was so emotionally charged about Fardeen's performance that he hugged me for that", informs Bazmee.
Does he promise the same for Harman as well who hasn't quite enjoyed a great start for him after LOVE STORY 2050?
"I am quite confident that Harman will bounce back in a big way after IT'S MY LIFE", says Bazmee, "He is a good actor and all the trappings of a star. He may have had not so encouraging beginning at the box office but this film will do a lot for him. As I have said, all stars work best with me and Harman would be no exception."
