Ranbir Kapoor surprised composers Vishal Shekhar with his effortless singing for Anjaana Anjaani

By Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; December 24, 2009)


Producer Sajid Nadiadwala, director Siddharth Anand and music composers Vishal Shekhar asked Ranbir Kapoor to lend his voice for a song in Anjaana Anjaani. Not only did Ranbir sing, but he also finished recording it in 45 minutes.

The recording took place at Vishal Shekhar’s studio in Bandra at 1am on Wednesday. Ranbir was on his way home before 2am. “He shocked both, Vishal and Shekhar. His singing was so smooth and comfortable. This facet of Ranbir was completely unknown and untapped,” says an industry source.

The scene which required Ranbir to sing isn’t a random input. Ranbir breaks into the song with a band playing behind him. The song is shown for a little over one-and-half minute.

Ranbir’s leading lady, Priyanka Chopra, was also present in the studio at around 10pm. Priyanka will also sing a solo for the same film, if everything goes well.” She heard the tune last night and brainstormed with Siddharth and Vishal Shekhar about her comfort level with the pitch of the song. She is yet to muster up the courage to sing. As things stand today, she should be singing the song in the next couple of days,” added the source.

It was the director of the film who wanted Ranbir to sing that particular song. Siddharth said, “Ranbir improvised a lot and did a brilliant job. It was my idea to make him sing. He knew about it from the time he read the script. But the scene where he sings remains to be shot. It will be canned in the next schedule in the US.”

Vishal thinks that Ranbir’s voice was necessary for credibility. He said, “Though it’s a song, it’s also a scene. We had to get Ranbir to do it for authenticity and he totally rocked!”

Abhishek Bachchan’s dedicated involvement as the producer of Paa impresses director Balki

By Subhash K Jha (MUMBAI MIRROR; October 15, 2009)

Paa

As the Bachchans are preparing to release their first home production after a gap of four years (Viruddh in 2005 was the last AB Corporation Ltd release), they plan to host a grand event in the next two weeks where Big B’s look in Paa will be unveiled by the producer of the film, Abhishek Bachchan, who plays Amitabh’s father in Paa.

Abhishek seems to have swept the director, Balki, off his feet. Revealing the plans for the event, Balki says, “We will have a life-size hoarding of Amitji as Auro, the 12-year-old character he plays in Paa which Abhishek will formally reveal.” Even though the look has already leaked out, Balki is unfazed, “What has been revealed so far is nothing. I challenge anyone to recognize Amitji as Paa if they already don’t know who he is.”

The unveiling ceremony will take place after Diwali, the details of which are being taken care of by Abhishek. Indeed, Paa has seen the coming of age of Abhishek as a producer. Balki tells us, “If Paa disclosed an unexplored side of Amitji on screen; it has also revealed Abhishek’s skills as a behind-the-scene administrator.

Everything from the locations to the costumes and food were supervised by Abhishek. It seems that Abhishek is ready to shoulder the responsibility as a co-owner of AB Corp Ltd, which is well equipped to bounce back with Paa.

“As far as I am concerned, Abhishek was our producer in Paa,” Balki concludes. The scion of the Bachchan family has been keeping accounts making sure the film stays within budget.
