New Age Directors

Indian Cinema a canvas which has been painted by many fresh colors off late…colors that have been painted by young directors, who dare to break the norms of age old direction. Dharma in the recent years has exhibited lot of young talents like Ayan Mukerji, Punit Malhotra, Siddharth Malohotra , Tarun Mansukhani & Rensil D'souza.

Right from Kurbaan (2009) Wake up Sid (2009) each film showcased an angle which highlighted a different blend of thoughts right from a teenagers tangled mind to a grave Islamic issue & range up to a Contemporary Luv Story! These films individually appealed the different sects & had something fresh & different to offer.

Soon we have Shakun Batra who’s directing Short Term Shaadi, another film that showcases work of yet another young talent. With this exciting young wave in the Indian Industry, the experience will just get Bigger!

Pandemonium at Agneepath sets

Recently we posted about Hrithik’s unfortunate incident at the Versova set while shooting for ‘Agneepath’ remake. They say lightning doesn’t strike the same place twice, we’re guessing Hrithik is the exception to the rule. Once again while shooting, this time for the Ganpati festivals sequence, while dancing with the diya, there was an accident oil spill on his hand. To worsen the matter while shooting for the gulaal scene, an overzealous junior artiste got caught up in the moment and threw the gulaal in Hrithik’s eyes.

Pandemonium broke out when Hrithik cried out in pain and upon realizing what had happened, everyone rushed in to help Hrithik. He was made to sit on a chair, wash the gulaal from his eyes and later on cold towels and cotton wool was brought in to wipe the gulaal out. A doctor was called in as Hrithik was still hurting. Though Karan offered to can the shoot, being the professional that he is Hrithik offered to continue with the shoot.

Well we truly hope Hrithik doesn’t come across more accidents while shooting for ‘Agneepath’. Fingers crossed!

Hrithik bleeds during Agneepath

‘Agneepath’ the original film starring Amitabh Bachchan and named after Harivansh Rai Bachchan's famous poem, is being remade with Hrithik Roshan as the lead. Recently shooting for the movie was taking place at the Versova studio where the scene demanded Hrithik break a coconut. Several retakes had to be taken to perfect the scene, later on after the scene completion did everyone notice that Hrithik’s hand was bleeding. Being well known as the true perfectionist that he is he didn’t complain at all about his hand and hadn’t bothered to inform anybody about the injury.

Hrithik was given first aid and the shoot was cancelled for the day. Although it is said to be lucky if some actor gets hurt on Dharma movies set as the movie turns out to be a hit, all we want is our actors hale and hearty no matter what. And hats off to Hrithik who has shown time and again that he who suffers pain indeed has the most to gain.
