Pooja Bhatt: KAJRAARE is a story with a heart
The muhurat of Bhushan Kumar's KAJRAARE was a very simple and homely affair at Film City, Goregaon. Veteran filmmaker Johny Bakshi sounded the clapper board while Mahesh Bhatt was there to boost the morale of daughter director Pooja Bhatt's team, Creative director Divya Khosla Kumar started the camera while playback singer Tulsi Kumar and music director-hero Himesh Reshammiya were discussing the intricacies of the number she is rendering in KAJRAARE. Writer Shagufta Rafiq, Monalaizza and Ajay Kapoor, Director T-Series, made their presence felt.
"Johny Bakshi had given me my first break years ago. And I did this film to pay him back," said Mahesh Bhatt on the occasion. Adding to that he said, "Gulshan Kumar was a daredevil who would come half way down the pitch to hit a shot he believed in," Mahesh Bhatt averred that ?Bhushan was a chip off the old block. KAJRAARE with its music and its strength of story would be a film that will make its mark," he added.
Divya Kumar felt that, "The film has tremendous potential and the beginning has been made with the muhurat."
Director Pooja Bhatt stated, "I wanted to go commercial with a vengeance after PAAP and what would be a better combination than a musical with Himesh Reshmammiya and Bhushan Kumar's T-Series! I have gone commercial with KAJRAARE, but at the same time, it is definitely a story with a heart."
