Reviving old tales

Aamir Khan opted out of Mr Mehta and Mrs Singh 15 years ago, and has registered the title again last week.

Around 15 years ago, Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor were penciled in to star in a Vishal Bharadwaj directed film called Mr. Mehta and Mrs. Singh, which was to be bankrolled by UTV. Aamir later opted out of the project, after which it was shelved.  

But interestingly, the actor registered the exact same title under his production house, Aamir Khan Films LLP’s banner, last week. He has registered two titles with the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA) — Mr Mehta and Mrs Singh as well as Mr Mehta Mrs Singh. “Aamir Khan has registered the titles of the film both in English as well as in Hindi,” informs our source.

While Bharadwaj’s original choice of heroine was Rani Mukerji, he later chose Kareena. “The film was billed to be a romantic comedy, very unlike the genre that Vishal had been trying to do. It was also a film where both Aamir and Kareena were shown ageing, like how they are doing so in Laal Singh Chaddha.
The film was to go on the floors in 2006 in Pondicherry, but things didn’t work out and the project was shelved then. Since Aamir has now registered the title, it does seem that he is keen to bring the film back to life. We wonder if it will have Vishal as a part of it, since it was his idea,” a film industry source muses.

Incidentally, there was another film that released in 2010 called Mr Singh Mrs Mehta with Prashant Narayanan and British actress Aruna Shields. The overtly bold film directed by Pravesh Bharadwaj got a lukewarm response at the box office.

Ditch smartphones for family time says Aamir Khan in new Vivo ad

It is almost suicidal for a smartphone company to tell users to take a break from their phones and that’s what Vivo India has done in its latest advertisement. Playing on the value of family bonding, the Chinese smartphone maker, which has focused on cutting edge features in its advertising so far, has now tweaked its message to promote responsible usage of smartphones.

Created by advertising agency Dentsu, the digital campaign features actor Aamir Khan as a father who is constantly on his smartphone even while sitting for breakfast with family. Visibly disturbed by lack of his father’s attention, the young son in the spot makes a New Year wish to get a smartphone. Surprised Khan tells him that he’s too young to get a phone to which he says that he wants his father’s phone which he will switch off and keep away. The underlying message being ‘Your loved ones wish for your time, Vivo encourages you to choose your switch off time’.

“Vivo is among the top three brands when it comes to both online and offline retail segment. Therefore, as a brand which has more than 55 million consumers in India, Vivo is big India. I feel the onus is on us to spread the right message about the responsible usage of smartphones,” said Nipun Marya, director brand strategy, Vivo India.

The campaign is a culmination of a study that Vivo carried out in association with Cybermedia Research (CMR) conducted across top eight cities in India. The report covers 2, 000 people across demographics with age groups between 18 and 45 years.

Titled ‘Smartphone and their impact on human relationships’ the findings highlight that an average Indian spends over 1,800 hours a year on their smartphone. 30% fewer people meet family and loved ones multiple times a month now as compare to 10 years ago. One in three people feel that they can’t even have a five minute conversation with friends and family without checking their phones. As many as 73% respondents agree that if smartphone usage continues at the current rate or grows, it is likely to impact one’s mental or physical health.

“While the explosive surge in smartphones in India has enabled Indians with not just communicating with loved ones, but with myriad other use cases including in consuming entertainment and in expressing themselves, our survey results demonstrate that the dependency on smartphones has increased. While smartphone will continue to be the primary go-to device, smartphone users have realized that periodically switching-off would help benefit their personal health,” said Prabhu Ram, head-industry intelligence group, CMR.

The campaign is being promoted across digital and social media platforms. Vivo India will also run an extensive radio campaign leg across cities on Radio Mirchi and Red FM which will feature counseling sessions with Dr Sameer Malhotra, head of mental health and behavioural sciences, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Delhi.

Say no to drugs: Bollywood actor Aamir Khan advises youth in TN’s Ramnad district

The actor was shooting in the coastal district when he met with district police chief Varun Kumar.

Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, who was recently in Ramanathapuram district in Tamil Nadu for a film shoot, extended a special message to the youth in the district. The actor, on the advise on the district police chief, asked students to stay away from drugs, a key issue in the coastal district. 

In a video message, he said, “Hello everyone, I’m here in Ramnad with your SP Varun. We were just talking and he was telling me that one of the big issues they face here is excessive use of narcotics, drugs, contraband, things which youngsters are getting addicted to. As a result they are wasting their life and harming their life. My sincere appeal to you is to stay away from all kinds of drugs and addictive material which will only harm your life.”

He went on to say, “We get one life and this is a gift to use which we should live it to the full, we should enjoy it. We should make people happy and make our loved ones happy. Getting addicted to drugs will only make life miserable for you. So my appeal to all youngsters is to stay away from drugs.”

He also added that fitness is a great way to bring joy to one’s life. “When you’re fit, you enjoy everything about your life. So stay fit and stay away from drugs,” said the actor. 

The actor, who was last seen in Thugs of Hindostan, is currently involved in the production of Laal Singh Chaddha, the official remake of the 1994 American film Forrest Gump.

The smuggling of narcotics and contrabands has been a long troubling issue for the coastal district. The easy access to a sea port enables the trafficking of narcotics, especially to the neighbouring country of Sri Lanka.

Aamir Khan won’t make films for kids Ira, Junaid unless they fit the role: ‘Can’t be dishonest’

Aamir Khan said that unless he is sure that his children Junaid and Ira would be the right fit, he would not make any films for them.

The constant buzz around Bollywood star kids and their speculated big screen debuts is perennial. Pop this question to Aamir Khan and he beams at the fact that both his children — Ira and Junaid from his first marriage — have chosen their career paths without any help from him.

“I’m so glad that they’re following what they want to do and what’s most important is that they’re doing it on their own. They are not taking my help in anything,” Aamir lets the proud father take over.

While Junaid made his acting debut with theatre, Ira has recently made her directorial debut with a play, a Greek tragedy titled Euripides’ Medea. Asked what all they’ve learnt from him, Aamir says, “I have no idea what they’ve taken from me; that you’ve to ask them. But what I can say is that they’re doing things entirely on their own, which is good because I think that’s how it should be. Ira had told me (about the play), but she had not asked me for any help, nor did she say, ‘Dad, please guide me’. Junaid is acting in theatre and he’s also on his own. So, both are doing what they feel like doing.”

Akshay Kumar’s Bachchan Pandey to Avoid Clash with Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha on Christmas 2020?

Sources claim that it is highly unlikely that Akshay Kumar will release two films – Bachchan Pandey and Bell Bottom – within a gap of 4 weeks.

Akshay Kumar, who is known for coming out with films on Independence Day, had booked most of the festive Fridays in 2020 for his high-profile films, with each story depicting a different avatar of the actor. Akshay had slotted Laxxmi Bomb for Eid (May 22, 2020), Prithviraj for Diwali 2020 and Bachchan Pandey was lined up for Christmas next year. Meanwhile, Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor starrer Laal Singh Chaddha is also slated for a Christmas release.

But now, it seems like Akshay might want to avoid the clash between his Bachchan Pandey and Aamir’s Laal Singh Chaddha. According to a report in Times Now, Akshay gave room for such a speculation after he dropped the first look of his retro spy movie titled Bell Bottom, which is slated to release in January 22, 2021.

Keeping the recent development in mind, it is highly unlikely that Akshay will release two films within a gap of 4 weeks, the report further stated.

Meanwhile, a source told Mid-day, “The scripting of Bachchan Pandey is underway and it will be a while before the final draft is ready. The pre-production too will be a time-consuming affair. So, Akshay and the producers are contemplating postponing the shoot, and by extension, the release.”

“It works out to the advantage of the makers — the team will have enough time to fine-tune the script. Also, the film will avoid locking horns with Aamir Khan‘s passion project, Laal Singh Chaddha. As of now, Akshay is busy juggling the shoot of Laxmmi Bomb and Sooryavanshi. Next on the cards is Yash Raj Films’ Prithviraj, which is a Diwali 2020 affair, and then he will most likely dive into the shoot of Bell Bottom. If all goes well, Bachchan Pandey will go on floors post that. It is unlikely that the two Akshay-starrers will come within a month of each other,” the source added.
