When it comes to making films, it is all about passion and the art of storytelling. Hemwant Tiwari, a young actor/director from Gurgaon is making the folks in film industry sit up and notice his work. And here is why? Hemwant is the first person in the world to have acted, written and directed a black and white one-shot feature film titled as LOMAD which means fox. From the idea to final execution, it took him more than two years. He says, “with every breath he inhales hope.”
Rehearsals and reading with the whole team took him almost 6 months. It was an experience which is beyond words.
Ask him how he has managed to achieve this feat and he says, “when you have to do it, you have to do it. Period. Be fearless”
The film is in the final stages of post-production and soon he will be in talking terms with various production houses for the release of the film.

Further, the filmmaker has acted with Hollywood stars Eric Roberts and Natasha Henstridge in the international TV series Medinah. The actor says that, while working on this project, he was excited to see a heartwarming example of “diversity”. He is also one of the few actors to bag the role of a protagonist in an international TV show.

Hemwant, who is originally from Bihar acted in a short film – Zindagi Bahut Khoobsurat Hai, which was screened at the Court Metrage, the short film corner of the 66th edition of Cannes Film Festival, in 2013.
I feel my work was appreciated at Cannes because the film delved around realistic content. He said
Also, his short film as an actor “Panaah” was very well received by the critics and the audiences. He has also directed and acted in a short film called “Salaam”.

Future plans for Hemwant include finding his own path and creating his own space. He says, “I am here to be part of films that touch people’s sensibilities and connect with them. Hard work and perseverance is the key. I would love to play all the roles in Bollywood as an actor and I want to do everything from masala, dance, entertainment, thriller, romance and biopics as well,” he said. “Every role excites me as I really enjoy the process of working on my character.”

Suparna Marwah fondly remembers her ‘No jaggery No shoot’ incident on the sets of San’84 Justice ?

Kabir Singh, Patiala House actress Suparna Marwah who plays an important role in the upcoming film San 84 Justice ? is very fond of jaggery and her fondness for jaggery became quite an eventful incident on the sets of the film. Her assistant would always keep a nice little piece of a special fine quality jaggery wrapped in a foil for her to use anytime during the shoot. She also used this as her special formulae to clear throat and maintain good voice texture as jaggery is known to serve as a natural energy booster and stimulant also very good for throat.

However one late night shoot schedule followed by an early morning next day lineup led her assistant to forget the jaggery at home and she ended up without it at the shoot. All was well until Suparna asked for her favourite savoury and there was none, the nervous girl shivered and explained her limitation in getting it, she was very sure there was a storm coming her way and Suparnaji being the actor of class that she is made it look and sound exactly like that through her convincing expressions. The nervous girl threw all the apologies through a bouquet of words that she possibly could while Suparna ji was clear that No Jaggery no shoot till the drama continued for few minutes till Suparna ji bursted into laughed and gave it away that she was simply pulling a fast one

Suparna continued to laughs her heart out while we spoke to her about this. She described how the shoot ended successfully even with with no jaggery. This did become one of the popular lines on the sets No Jaggery No shoot and as a result of this next day there were boxes of Jaggery brought in by various people including a special one that was gifted fondly by Ashish Sahdev who had important scenes lined up with her and Ashish told us, I told Suparna ji, well I have made sure my scenes with you are going perfectly smooth, both had good laughs all through as they shot further. Suparna was actually overwhelmed with the love poured in from everyone on the sets with this lovely gesture. Director Sandeep Rana too had his take in this incident, he said It was a moment of pride for me to see my San 84 Justice team bond like a family and as a director there is nothing better to achieve, I knew from this moment we will have a good film in hand
