Ansh Bagri: I used to feel that TV is a boring medium to be part of

Actor Ansh Bagri never really wanted to be part of the TV industry. The actor, who has done over 100 commercials as well been part of the film Days of Tafree and is now part of a TV show called Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji, says that he was never fond of the medium. “I always do content-driven things and I used to always think that TV is a very boring medium to be part of. I felt that every day you had to do the same thing. I used to feel that I won’t be able to do it. That’s the reason why I never wanted to do TV because it has the same character and same look every day,” he says.

He adds, “But eventually when I did India’s Next Superstar, it was an acting, dance and performance-based show. After doing that, I saw that you get so much love after doing TV and as an actor you get to do so many things. I got that clarity from there. The other reason to take up TV was when this show was offered, I felt like the character is not a typical TV character. There are a lot of challenges for my character, Rocky in the show. Our production house, 4 Lions are known to give good content and they are very particular about their characters.”

However, does that mean that films will take a backseat in his career? “Right now, I just want to concentrate on Dil Toh Happy Hai Ji. I am improving every day as an actor and I am getting to show my talent. I am getting whatever I want to as an actor, I want to work and I am working, I want attention from my fans and I am getting that. I want appreciation and I am getting that as well, so it doesn’t matter whether I am part of a film or a TV show,” he says.

The new one minute video shows Sonchiriya is a complete family fair

Meet the loving, sanskari rebels of Sonchiriya in this new one minute video

Who said the rebels can’t feel love that we do, that they are devoid of sanskars and they don’t celebrate festivals. Get ready to celebrate Holi and Diwali with the rebels of Sonchiriya where the pistols will go back and even the barrels.
The makers of Sonchiriya are leaving no stones unturned in treating the audience with insights into the World of Rebels. Recently they released one minute video titled “Sonchiriya Baaghiyon Ka Beehad”. The video gives us an insight on the world of rebels in the melodic voice of Vijay Raaz in a way that is never done before. The voice over is a witty and sarcastic way and completely opposite of what peace and love looks like in real life. Baaghiyon Ka Beehad where peace is symbolized by gun fires, love among people is symbolized by fights, a conversation is symbolized by abuses and a blessing is symbolized by hitting.
The makers quoted the video “बाग़ियों ke beehad mein hamesha शान्ति rehti है, sab bade प्यार se joh rehte hai! Miliye inse 1st March से aapke nazdeki सिनेमाघरों में!” The video showcases heavy action sequences with powerful dialogue delivery which gives you a quick tour through the Chambal.
Directed by Abhishek Chaubey and produced by Ronnie Screwvala Sonchiriya is all set to release on 1st March 2019. Starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Bhumi Pednekar, Manoj Bajpayee, Ranvir Shorey, and Ashutosh Rana in lead roles, Sonchiriya promises to be a power packed film giving us a glimpse of the tales of dacoit in the Chambal region during 1975 emergency.
This family fair is releasing on March 1, 2019.

Krishna Bharadwaj awarded with Indori Ratna for Tenali Rama

Actor Krishna Bharadwaj, who plays the lead role in Tenali Rama, was recently awarded the Indori Ratna by Sanstha Indorians. The actor says that even though he is not from Indore, he bagged it thanks to the popularity of the show. “The event was called Indori Ratna Awards. So basically, people of Indore who are from different fields like art, culture, sports and other departments are given Indori Ratna awards. But this time they called me in spite of the fact that I am not from Indore. They gave me the Indori Ratna as the show Tenali Rama is a big hit in Indore and doing very well there,” says Krishna, who was also gifted a special cut out by the Tenali Rama fan club.

Talking about the experience, he says, “The experience was completely mesmerizing as when I landed there was so much crowd gathered to see me. Some people wanted to take selfies and others just wanted a glimpse of me. It felt great to see my character being loved. I wished I was from Indore as I got so much love from them, something that I could have never got from my hometown too. At 12 in the night, they specially opened the Khajrana Temple of Lord Ganesha in Indore for me and I worshipped it.”

The actor says that hard work and passion has always been his mantra to success. “I am in acting from the last 13-14 years. I have been acting since I was 4-years-old in Doordarshan and Akashwani. In Mumbai, from the last 14 years, I have learned that perseverance and passion always pay you back. Your dream and your hard work never go waste. I always dreamt a little more than usual. I always worked a little more than normal. I always wanted to become big. I haven’t reached that extent of success what I wanted but I have started my journey,” he says.

The actor says that fan love makes everything worth it. “Getting recognised and love from you fans feels good. I am getting many awards including this Indori Ratna for Tenali Rama. The response is always amazing and the love from them is great. As an actor, you always want appreciation and adulation from people and I am getting that,” he says.

An artist works more for appreciation than money : Abhijit Das

An artist works more for appreciation than money : Abhijit Das

Art is all about love, expression, liberation and faith. But as business takes over art, mistrust and insecurities creeps in to corrupt the whole fabric of art. From plagiarism to cheated artists to unpaid assignments. Artists seem to be at the receiving end of this industrializations of art. The world of literature, films, and performing arts are filled with such examples. Most of them unknown to the world. The recent victim is writer and director, Abhijit Das. He has gone unpaid and not even credited for 2 short film stories he wrote for Viacom Motion Pictures through Mohona Films.

In the beginning of 2017, he was approached by Ronita Mitra of Mohona Films to conceptualise short content for Viacom Motion Pictures and Tipping Point Films. He wrote a couple of stories of which 2 scripts were approved by Viacom. He spent a couple of months developing the scripts, the look and made multiple presentations for Mohona Films. It took time for the project to move ahead and he got busy with a daily soap, Dil Sambhal Jaa Zara on Star Plus. Thus he couldn’t take the stories forward with Viacom. Ronita followed up a couple of times with Abhijit and finally requested him to sign over the stories to Mohona Films. With sheer trust and humility, he signed a non-legal document and gave the rights of the stories to them. Debatma Mandal was brought in by them to direct the films. The project finally went on floor with Viacom and the films were complete by end of 2018. In the first week of February 2019 Voot Originals announced the launch of the 2 films. The premiere was held, the promos were released and social media was filled with happy posts of the 2 well acclaimed short films. But unfortunately no credit was given to Abhijit Das for the story. There was no mention of him in the film, the release press conference or the social media posts. The person who wrote the stories and got the project rolling, was forgotten completely. He was paid only 20% of the agreed amount because apparently the producers had made losses. A call to Mohona Films resulted in them insulting Abhijit and hanging up on him. Apparently he had disappeared on them and thus didn’t deserve any money or credit. But then why did they chase him to hand over the rights? Why did they use the stories he had written and pitched along with them if he had done nothing in the project?

Abhijit says,”An artist works more for appreciation than money. Appreciation and celebration of the efforts of an artist don’t need money. The distributors and channels need to be aware that once art is corrupted by mistrust and apprehension, it’s the content which gets violated. It’s not pure any more. One shouldn’t start creating with preconditions and apprehensions. It’s like a #metoo of intellectual property where the perpetrators need to be talked about and justice needs to be given to the survivors. Because it’s nothing short of violation of the chastity of art. And the more we stay silent, the more we encourage this exploitation in the name of business.”
