Abhishek’s fascinated with multi-starrers
Abhishek Bachchan, who featured in quite a few multi-starrers, says he enjoys doing films with an ensemble cast.
‘I enjoy that more because I like a whole lot of actors on the sets. There is a great energy and you get to feed off that different kind of energies. That keeps it very interesting,’ Bachchan told IANS.
The 35-year-old’s upcoming film ‘Dum Maaro Dum’ has an ensemble cast that has Bipasha Basu, Prateik Babbar, Rana Daggubati and Aditya Pancholi.
His previous multi-starrers were ‘Yuva’, ‘Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna’, ‘Jhoom Barabar Jhoom’, ‘Laaga Chunari Mein Daag’ and ‘Game’.
When Anupam’s mother failed to recognise him!
It is believed a mother never fails to recognise her children, even from a distance. But today’s make-up techniques can make things very difficult and something similar happened to Anupam Kher and his mom.
The actor is playing a double role in his upcoming film ‘Zokkomon’ – in one role, he looks himself, but for the other his look has been completely changed with the help of make-up experts from France.
‘I was happy to see that during a trial show of the film, my mother did not get to know that the other actor is also me. In the interval, I told her it’s some Russian actor and she actually believed it. So that proved that it looks very real,’ the 56-year-old told IANS.
‘Zokkomon’ produced by Walt Disney Studios and written and directed by Satyajit Bhatkal is slated for release Friday.
