The promos of BANGISTAN are on in full swing. Riteish Deshmukh and Pulkit Samrat are coming on as a duo in every promotional activity-right from opening a food joint to slapping each other.
But what is not known is that Arya Babbar has an interesting role as well. Since there was no material forthcoming from the film’s PR about Arya and his purported role, I decided to get it straight from the horse’s mouth.
When asked if he did not feel left out as he was not being promoted, Arya said, “Not at all.” In fact he explained, that for him, how the film does is of prime importance, not who gets promoted and how!
So here’s a little bit of Arya’s character, Zulfi, in the movie. Zulfi belongs to ‘AL Kaam Tamaam’, a terrorist organization from North Bangistan. He is senior to Hafeez (Riteish Deshmukh’s character) and is better than him in everything. His childhood dream is to be a suicide bomber and reach Jannat as guided by the organization’s Abba Jaan.
Coming back to the promo part, the recently-released GUDDU RANGEELA had Arshad Warsi, Aditi Rao Hydari and Amit Sadh plastered on all the posters. Ronit Roy was nowhere to be seen. He only roared on screen with a power-packed performance.
Considering how he walked out with the accolades in MATRU KI BIJLEE KI MANDOLA, Arya might just do the same!
B and BB seem to be bad for B!
Or maybe, keeping the Babbar boy out of the promos has something to do with the B-fear. What I am talking about is BAHUBHALI and BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN being bad for BANGISTAN which was to release this Friday.
The release date has now been pushed to August 7, since both the Bs are holding fort in multiplexes and screens are hard to come by. But since Babbar is already in the film, Methinks this might just B what they are looking for!
In just over a year, Kriti Sanon, who celebrates her birthday today, has firmly established her credentials in Bollywood. The lissome lass has bagged a bagful of commercials as well.
Of late, she has been hobnobbing with the A-listers of Bollywood but has managed to maintain her down-to-earth attitude.
HEROPANTI saw her carry off every scene with ease, and infact overshadow Tiger Shroff, whose debut it was. The girl had a couple of films in the south under her belt and her confidence was naturally on a high.
FARZI and DILWALE are the next big films under her belt and I’m sure with the talent she has displayed in her debut Hindi film, she is here to stay for a long time.
Happy Birthday, Kriti. Shine like you are expected to. The Universe is yours!
