Fawad Khan and the art of looking hot!
It's difficult to relate to the Fawad Khan from KAPOOR & SONS to the Fawad Khan who made his Bollywood debut a year-and-a-half ago in KHOOBSURAT.
Same actor, differing roles! It took me a while to get convinced that he indeed was the Fawad Khan. He looked different in both the movies. In KHOOBSURAT, alongside Sonam Kapoor, he was this young, lean and wiry, regal, bearded personality, who spoke a lot with his eyes. He carried off the character of Vikram Rathore, as though he was royalty himself. His body language was in sync with the character he portrayed.

In KAPOOR & SONS he is a bit bulked up, clean shaven and “looks hot” as Alia Bhatt's character Tia Singh blurts out in their very first meeting. A complete actor, Fawad Khan is not only a delight to the eyes (for the fairer sex of course) but also an actor with tremendous potential.
I'm sure he will surprise us in his next movie as well. Keep us entertained, Fawad!
Alia Bhatt hits the Highway
Alia Bhatt has a huge fan following and this was evidenced in the ‘first-day-first-show' of KAPOOR & SONS. I believe it was mainly her presence in the movie that got the young audience in. The show I caught at a multiplex was teeming with youngsters who were identifying with her character.

And she never let he fans down. Bubbly and spontaneous, she played her part in the movie to make you root for her. That the movie by Shakun Batra is a ‘joy to watch' is another matter.
Ever since her Debut in STUDENT OF THE YEAR, Alia has hit the HIGHWAY with SHAANDAAR performances. And she is only going to get better and better. I hope she experiments with diverse roles.
Among the current heroines, she is soon carving a niche for herself in the industry. That will be the day when the audience erupts with ceetis and taalis as soon as she makes her grand entry on screen!
Right now, that privilege is reserved only for Salman Khan.
Does marketing make a bad product good?
While a good movie gets its word-of-mouth publicity, which is the best publicity, a not-so-good-one gets articles written with no bylines in a leading tabloid on how the movie is doing well and how it has been appreciated.
I am talking about TERAA SUROOR, Himesh Reshammiya's latest. There's no doubt the presentation was classy and the movie was the best that week, given the other release. But I'm just wondering how a bad movie can become good with repeated articles, that too, with no author taking credit for the ‘information' dished out to the readers.
Just today I read a quote by singer Kailash Kher who said: “I find it difficult to compete with bad songs that are launched with great marketing.”
Exactly my thoughts!
