Planning to re-release his home production Prem Ke Rog Bhayeel in Mumbai and rest of India, after getting a good box-office response in Bihar, Nirahua is fast becoming a Bhojpuri favourite.
The film had a record breaking collection of 60 Lacs in its first week, and that’s when it was released only in Bihar.
A lot of actors from the Bhojpuri Film Industry turned up for the premier show of Prem Ke Rog Bhayeel held at Mumbai recently and were quite appreciative of film and it’s lead Nirahua, who essayed the role of ‘Billo Rani’.
In a candid chat with the actor, we get him illustrating his role, new films and his vision for Bhojpuri cinema.
Your home production film ‘Prem Ke Rog Bhayeel ‘ is doing a roaring business in Bihar. How do you feel about it?
I gave the film my best; and honestly when you give something your best, it’s bound to be successful. That is why almost all of my films are hit at the box-offices. I was confidant of Prem Ke Rog Bhayeel being a success. Naturally, I felt good when I was told it has done wonders in Bihar, where it was released in 32 cinema halls and is giving more than hundred percent result! Our director Farooq Siddiqui has discharged his duties with responsibility.
Don’t you feel that the role of ‘Billo Rani’ is influenced by ‘Chachi 420 ‘or ‘Aunty No.1 ‘; as all these films showed the hero romancing with his love in the guise of a girl?
No, I don’t totally agree with you. You can say that the film somewhat repeats those films but it is totally different from those films in many aspects. My film gives a healthy and good entertainment. Honestly speaking the role of ‘Billo Rani’ was a challenge for me and I accepted the challenge to the best of my capability. Now the results are in front of everyone.
What message does the film convey?
If you want to resolve something with force you are bound to fail. But if you try it with love and compassion you are certain to succeed. My girlfriend in the film is the daughter of a power-lord. He is against our marriage and deploys all kinds of force against me. But finally I win him over with my love as a girl.
What was that special something which made you agree to the film?
At the outset I was convinced when Farooq Siddiquir narrated the story to me. I felt it to be a story that mirrors life. I have done such stories before but this time it was a different theme and the cine-goers will find a new Nirahua and will come to see the film again and again.
Did you encounter some problems doing this role?
No. Nothing. My co-artists Pakhi Hegde, Awadhesh Mishra, and Manoj Tiger helped me a lot and they reviewed my every shot. I would also like to thank Farooq Ahmad Siddiqui who got the best out of me and a very good film was produced.
Are you now in the position to choose your roles?
Yes, of course! I am only doing selected films now and want that Bhojpuri films get international recognition. I started my own film production house, keeping this aim of making good films in Bhojpuri. Prem Ke Rog Bhayeel is the example of that devotion. Next film of my production house is Nirahua Tangewala which will be the biggest Bhojpuri Film till date. In reality, I want to change the taste of Bhojpuri Cine-goers so that they choose to see only class films in Bhojpuri. Now, I want to produce Bhojpuri Films for the international market.
What more is going on these days?
My films are regularly making waves. Pratigya has done Silver Jubilee, Deewana has completed 50 days in Bihar, and so has Chalani Ke Chalal Dulha in Bihar and UP starring my younger brother Pravesh Lal in the lead role. I have just completed the shootings of Parivaar and many are in the pipeline. I am all booked for the next two years.
