★ Quick Chat with Salman’s New On-Screen Muse !

July 22, 2014 | R.M. Vijayakar

Mumbai — India-West gets ten minutes with the lady. So before we get pronto into a chat, here’s an interesting trivia narrated by Salman Khan — that Jacqueline Fernandez was almost signed opposite him for “London Dreams” in 2009. “But she chose ‘Aladin’!” he says with a dismissive gesture.

It’s taken her five years to reach Salman. At Mehboob Studios, snug inside amidst the monsoon frenzy one afternoon, the tall and leggy former Miss Sri Lanka Universe speaks. Excerpts from an interview:

Q: Salman Khan has called you today’s Zeenat Aman. Are you “Kick”ed by that?

A: (Smiles broadly) Well, I am a very, very big Zeenat fan and Salman would make fun of that and address me as Zeenat-ji! The way Zeenat revolutionized fashion and characters that long ago was amazing!

Q: Two questions: what do you think you can do in a film that’s all Salman Khan? And how was it working with him?

A: (Seriously) Well, you know what? In this kind of all-out Salman Khan movie, none of us co-actors would want it any other way but for him to be Salman and the film to be about him! He is such a huge star!

But the script is simply amazing and Nadiad (Jacqueline’s pet name for producer-director Sajid Nadiadwala) has chalked up some amazing stuff. He’s taken immense care to bring alive all his characters.

As for Salman, as an actor, he saw how hard I have worked all through and was very encouraging. I have worked with so many big stars and everyone has their own persona, but there is something different about Salman that I can’t place. It’s not just his aura, which is magical! At work, he is so simple, one of the simplest men I have met — in films or outside — in my whole life. And the best part is that he does not want much or need much. He just wants to give back, and that is very special.

As a co-star, he would think for all. His opinions were for the betterment of the film and he inspired me a lot.

Q: How satisfying is it that someone from alien shores like you has made it big in the world of Hindi films?

A: Well, I do have Indian blood in me — my great grand-dad was from Trichy and he went to Sri Lanka to do tea plantation. Speaking for myself, my handicap was the language and it took me time to adjust here. I did make a lot of mistakes but I have no regrets. All of those mistakes I made worked for me and got me here — to do a solo lead in a film with a superstar! (Smiles) Yes, I do feel immense pride and a deep sense of achievement.

Q: And to who or what would you give the credit?

A: I think I would say just to my hard work and focus. In any case, there are no such things as shortcuts!

Q: Your first hero in two flops, “Aladin” and “Jaane Kahaan Se Aayi Hai,” as well as in “Housefull 2,” was Riteish Deshmukh — would you do a movie with him now?

A: Why not? From day one, Riteish has been a great buddy! I am now doing a cameo in his “Bangistan” in the form of an item song.

★ Can Kick Be The Biggest Overseas Opener For Salman Khan?

July 23, 2014

Q. Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania has done big business despite Ramadan so Kick should not really be affected?

Ans. Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania had lower expectations, Kick is reaching out to a much wider audience so when the reach is wider the Ramadan affect will be more as its easy to get a 30 crore nett weekend even if you have some factors against but to get that huge weekend you need everything to be on your side. 

Q. Can Kick be the biggest overseas opener for Salman Khan?

Ans. Again Pre Eid it affect it in places like UK, UAE and Pakistan, no doubt the film will pick up hugely after Eid in these countries.

★ KICK - The Pre Eid Effect !

July 23, 2014

The year has not been an impressive one with box office collections down 8% in the first half of 2014 compared to the corresponding period in 2013 but that first event film releasing for the holiday period is here in the form of Kick and expectations are humongous with talk of opening records and challenging Dhoom 3 lifetime.

The film is that big grand action film with a superstar which appeals across the board but eventually it is pre-eid and a film can only do what the period allows it to do. The makers probably had a tough decision as to whether come on Friday as it is coming now or Tuesday (Eid) when it probably would have set an opening day record.

It is probably better coming on the Friday as it is a fourteen day window rather than that ten day window it would have got if it came on Tuesday. The advantage for a Tuesday release would have been momentum gathered right from day one but its unlikely it would have covered all of Fri-Mon business that it missed with a Tuesday release.

A challenge to Dhoom 3 lifetime is hard as that film had 21 days till two films released which had potential to find an audience and give it competition. Kick only has fourteen days and four of them will see some of the audience staying away. It is hard to say how much it will be affected by pre eid but a Krrish 3 released pre-diwali managed less than 19 crore nett on day one. In that period many Hindu’s stay away from the theatres and with pre-eid its the Muslim population that stays away.

There is a lot of talk of opening records but its an unlikely scenario as it would a huge shock if pre eid does not affect Kick. There was a case of Ek Tha Tiger (2012) which released pre eid to set a record but that was on a big national holiday where business improves by 60%. The next day saw Ek Tha Tiger fall below 15 crore nett which was a normal day though obviously business has gone up since then. Realistically a first day above 20 crore will be very good and if goes towards 25 crore or higher then it would be extraordinary.

The record which Kick can aim for is the most days over 20 crore nett. So far films like Chennai Express and Ek tha Tiger have gone over 20 crore nett on three days while Dhoom 3 went over 20 crore nett on five occasions. Kick should beat Chennai Express and Ek Tha Tiger on this count and challenge Dhoom 3 as it will put big first week with weekdays putting up huge numbers.

★ Eid Release: The ‘Kick’ mania sets in !

Arti Dani | 22 July 2014

Salman Khan’s star power is enough to draw in the crowds to the theatre, but his co-stars from Kick, which releases in UAE this weekend, are confident that they will hold their own in this project. We spoke to Jacqueline Fernandez, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and screenplay writer Chetan Bhagat about this much-awaited Eid-release.

Photo: Agencies
When producer Sajid Nadiadwala called Jacqueline Fernandez to his office, she thought he wanted her to do a special number in some film that he was producing. Once she learnt she would be playing Salman Khan’s leading lady in his action thriller Kick, the actress went to the Mount Mary Church in Mumbai to offer a prayer of thanks.

While talking to City Times over the phone from Mumbai, Jacqueline said she was on cloud nine when the offer landed on her lap. “Getting this role was like winning a lottery. It came out of nowhere. It was shocking. I did not expect it. Not only was it a Salman Khan movie, but my role was also good. Plus, it marks Sajid’s directorial debut - everything kept getting better and better.” In fact Kick will be Jacqueline’s first big project as a lead heroine. She started her career opposite Riteish Deshmukh in 2009 with Aladdin, which failed to do well at the box office. Following which she was seen doing special numbers and small appearances in movies like Housefull, Housefull 2, Ramaiya Vastavaiya and Race 2. Murder 2 with Emran Hashmi was a hit but it did not propel her career as expected. And while a look at Salman’s career graph will show that his leading ladies don’t exactly come off well at the end of it - case in point Sneha Ullal, Daisy Shah and Zarine Khan who were all launched by Salman Khan - there is no doubting that a project opposite the action Khan is a much desired one.

As far as Jacqueline is concerned, this movie might get her the kind of exposure, she has not enjoyed so far. After Kick, she is doing Roy with Ranbir Kapoor and Arjun Rampal where she will be seen in a double role. Apparently one of the roles is that of a filmmaker for which she has referenced director Kiran Rao. Following that she will be seen with Riteish Deshmukh in Bangistan.

As of now Kick rules Jacqueline’s life and she cannot stop talking about it.

“The story is about this extra-ordinary character played by Salman Khan who does everything in life with the purpose of getting a kick out of it. How he changes the life of ordinary people is pretty much the crux of the movie. It’s extremely entertaining with lots of action. My character is that of a simple girl who goes though extraordinary emotions. That’s the beauty of it.”

‘I will never be part of an illogical movie’

Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays a character with grey shades in Kick

A staple at International film festival circuits with films like Gangs of Wasseypur, The Lunchbox, Monsoon Shootout and others, Nawazuddin Siddiqui has also appeared in commercial movies like Sarfarosh (1999), Talaash (2012) and others. However Kick marks his first fully fledged role in a mass entertainer. The actor feels the movie will give him an opportunity to connect with a wider set of audience.

“I was looking forward to be part of a mass film as I have done only low budget movies so far. I wanted my low budget movies to reach the masses. I felt that this is a very good opportunity for me to connect with them.”

So how was it acting alongside Salman Khan? “Our professional relationship was very good. We did not become great friends but sometimes after the scene, we would sit together. I even ate biryani from his house.”

Contrary to his image of doing only low budget movies, Nawazuddin does not mind doing commercial movies but he is clear about one thing. He will never be part of an illogical film. “I want to do every kind of movie but I do not want to do illogical movies. For example Kick is a massy film but every character has a reason to be present on screen; there is logic in every situation and twists. Every character has a logical background. So If I get similar films, I will do it for sure.”

After struggling for years in Bollywood, Nawazuddin recently tasted success and is not ashamed to admit that he wants his remuneration to be increased.

“Every man grows in his or her profession. If your salary is ten rupees today, you would want it to be twenty tomorrow. It is the same strategy with me. It is not a rumour; I want to hike my price.”

‘I’m not going to disappoint Salman Khan fans’

Popular author Chetan Bhagat has written the additional screenplay of Kick alongside Rajat Arora, Keith Gomes and Sajid Nadiadwala

Four of Chetan Bhagat’s books have been made into films. His bestselling novel 2 States: The Story Of My Marriage was recently made starring Arjun Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, and it struck the right chord with the masses. 3 idiots (based on Five Point Someone) and Kai Po Che! (Based on The 3 Mistakes Of My Life) managed to hit the bulls eye at the box office, while Hello, inspired by One Night @ the Call Center fell flat at the box office.

So how did Kick happen? “Sajid Nadiadwala had bought the rights of 2 States. He and I had a good relationship because of that. He called me to his office and said, ‘After 28 years of producing, I am thinking of directing a movie. I want to do it with my best friend Salman. I liked the concept of the Tamil movie but I want to make a fresh story out of it.” That was how I was brought on board. I was surprised and told him, ‘I am a novelist. This is different than the other films I have been with’. It was a kick to do this film. I did it for the high of working in a Salman Khan starrer, plus Sajid directing was an added bonus.”

The novelist told us the approach for writing the movie was quite different from writing a novel. While in a novel, he gets to decide every aspect of the story, in the movie, he had to get consent at every stage while working with the team. Like Nawazuddin, the lure of reaching a wider audience is what attracted him big time. “Films reach a lot of Indians, which a book almost never can. That is the big appeal. Kick being a mass movie will reach so many people who I otherwise would never be able to reach. It is nice for a writer to have a range. Once I did it, I really enjoyed it.

Bhagat told us that special attention was paid to every character not just the main ones. “Even supporting actors like Nawazuddin, Saurabh Shukla and Randeep Hooda play important roles. They all come from very interesting parallel cinema. The director is clear that just because there is a Salman Khan does not mean others will be taken for granted. Yet we tried not to be so different that the fans will get upset. So he had to do action and comedy. I am not going to disappoint Salman Khan fans. As an author, I make sure that every character that I write stays in people’s minds.”

Being Human

Salman has been through his shares of ups and downs in the industry. So what does Jacqueline thinks of Salman Khan as a human being? “I think his main ambition in life is to give back and he has made that his passion. When you watch the movie as well, I do not think anyone could have done this role better, because, that character is so Salman. That is the beauty. I think it is the honesty in him that makes him so special.” Jacqueline continues, “There is a calmness inside him. But I think it’s because he is a very simple person. He does not need much in life. I think because of that there is a certain amount of wisdom and peace in him.”

Double standards

Jacqueline Fernandez on how people find it hard to believe that a woman can move up in her career on her own merit

“The sad thing is that people find it difficult to accept that an actress can achieve something on her merit. Why does it always have to be this feeling that (when she achieves something) there was some exchange or compromise involved? I mean that takes away so much from all the hard work that we put in. But it happens with a lot of actresses. I think that is something that will never change. Exceptions are always there. We do have to live with it. People think that the actresses have sold themselves to get a movie. That is very sad.”

★ Sooraj-Aathiya’s Hero to open on Valentine’s Day?

Subhash K. Jha | July 23, 2014

Nikhil Advani’s remake of Hero just got more romantic. And with reason! Producer Salman Khan and director Nikhil Advani want to release their love story introducing Suniel Shetty’s daughter and Aditya Pancholi - Zarina Wahab’s son on Valentine’s day. To add to the romance quotient, the unit of Nikhil Advani’s Hero took off to the virgin locales of Romania for eight days to shoot an ultra-romantic song.

Says a source from the core crew, “Nikhil wanted to originally shoot the song in Paris. But of late, there has been too much of Paris in Bollywood. Queen was shot there and we hear Sai Kabir is shooting his next film there. So the novelty value is lost. The location where the song was shot in Romania has never been seen in any film from any part of the world.” 

Only the film’s climax which is to be shot in Mumbai, remains to be shot. Says the source, “For the climax Nikhil Advani wants Sooraj Pancholi to tone up his physique for a lengthy bloodied fight.” 

Though the official release date is yet to be announced, Hero is now being readied for release on February 13, to coincide with Valentine’s Day 2015. 

Says a source, “Nikhil Advani and Salman Khan feel the chemistry between Sooraj and Aathiya is so articulate that Hero would be the best Valentine’s Day romantic film. Also, the two releases scheduled for the Valentine week so far are not ideally romantic films. One is Dibakar Banerjee’s Detective Byomkesh Bakshi which is not a romantic film at all. The other is debutant director Vikramjit Singh’s dark thriller Roy starring Arjun Rampal and Jacqueline Fernandez with Ranbir Kapoor in a guest appearance. So there is really no competition for Hero for Valentine’s Day.”

★ I like my role in Salman Khan’s ‘Kick’, says Nawazuddin Siddiqui !

July 23, 2014 

Mumbai: ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ star Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who has teamed up with Salman Khan in the upcoming ‘Kick’, says he plays a very thrilling role in the masala entertainer.

Nawaz says film’s director-producer Sajid Nadiadwala wrote the part keeping him in mind. ”Sajid told me that when the character was being written in the movie, he already had me in mind. Finally, when it was ready, he gave me a narration and I liked the role. It was a good opportunity,” Nawaz told PTI in an interview.

The 40-year-old actor, who has deftly portrayed common man roles in films like ‘Peepli Live’, ‘Lunchbox’ and ‘Liar’s Dice’, says people will find his character interesting.

"This is completely different from what I have done before. I have mostly played the lower middle class person but not here. My character is grey and quite thrilling. People will enjoy it," Nawaz says. When asked how it was to work with Salman, Nawaz says it was great to work with the superstar.

"It was great. Salman made the working environment very light and easy because he is easy-going in real life. He is the most honest co-actor I had," says Nawaz. Slated for an Eid release on July 25, the film also stars Jacqueline Fernandez and Randeep Hooda.
