Bobby Deol learns pure Hindi for ‘Poster Boys’

Yamla Pagla Deewana 2′ was the last time that we saw them together. Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol are set to come back together with Shreyas Talpade’s ‘Poster Boys’. It is a story of three men who accidentally find their own pictures on a poster endorsing vasectomy.

The trailer, with apt comic timing, has garnered positive response from all corners. And if you were attentive enough, you might remember Bobby Deol speaking in pure Hindi. He went through an extensive preparation to attain the perfect vocabulary and pronunciation. (Also Read:Bobby Deol’s ‘Poster Boys’ to release this September)

Shreyas, along with writer Bunty Rathore, set a routine for Bobby wherein he would be reciting Gayatri Mantra after he woke up each morning. This would be followed by a session of reading Hindi newspaper. This went on for a fortnight almost. The results were commendable and we will get to witness that soon!

On the other hand, turning director has been a truly satisfying experience for Shreyas. I am a huge Hrishi-da (Hrishikesh Mukherjee) fan. I have always looked up to his films and work. Also, in my career, I have worked with varied directors, starting from Nagesh Kukunoor to Farah Khan, Rohit Shetty, and Shyam Benegal. So, I have tried and incorporated whatever I have learned from these great directors into my work, like Nagesh’s particularity in every aspect, Farah’s 70mm vision, Rohit’s knack for making family entertainers, and Shyam Babu’s freedom to express. I have been fortunate enough to have worked with people from different schools of filmmaking,” he says.

‘Poster Boys’ also stars Shreyas himself along with Sunny Deol in pivotal roles. It is set for theatrical release on September 8.

Ranbir Kapoor: I suffer from anxiety issues after finishing a film

Ranbir Kapoor: I suffer from anxiety issues after finishing a film

Mental illness is still not considered as a sickness and people shy away from discussion about it. No, when you suffer from some mental disease you are crazy or mad, it is as normal as a physical sickness. Our society is easily influenced by famous personalities and sometimes people also follow them blindly. So when Bollywood actors come in the open and talk about suffering from depression or any other mental illness, people become aware about it and somewhere start considering it as a serious problem.

Recently, Ranbir Kapoor, who is gearing up for the release of ‘Sanju’ has confessed that he is suffering from anxiety issues. Ranbir has been busy with the promotion of his upcoming film which is a biopic on Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt. He has been giving multiple interviews and has shared some fantastic stories about his life, personal and professional.

In one such interview with film critic Anupama Chopra before the release of ‘Sanju’, Ranbir shared about what he goes through before and after the release of the film. He said, “I suffer from anxiety issues after finishing a film and before the film hits theatres. It has happened with every one of my films.”

This is an important point to note for all those people who thought that the film industry is all about glam and fame. The harsh reality is, there is stress and pressure even here and the biggest of stars suffer from mental illness. In the past, Deepika Padukone, Ileana D’Cruz have also openly spoken about battling depression, and we are glad they did.

Ranbir’s upcoming film, ‘Sanju’ also stars Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Jim Sarbh, Karishma Tanna, Boman Irani and others. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani the film will release on June 29.
