CHANCE PE DANCE

Backed by the success of 3 of the genre defining blockbusters of 2009 – KAMINEY, WAKE UP SID and DEV.D, UTV Motion Pictures announced an aggressive line up of 4 films for the period of January – March 2010.

The slate for 2010 kicks off with CHANCE PE DANCE, which has been directed by Ken Ghosh and stars Shahid Kapoor, as the talented and passionate Sameer with a never-say-die attitude and Genelia, as a beautiful and spirited choreographer, Tina. The film will have a worldwide release on 15th January.

HARISHCHANDRACHI FACTORY, India’s official entry to the Oscars this year, will hit the screens on 22nd January. This acclaimed Marathi film directed by Paresh Mokashi is a UTV production, co-produced with Paprika Media and Mayasabha. The film has also been screened for the BAFTA and Golden Globe juries, apart from various other film festivals.

PETER GAYA KAAM SE, a fast-paced action adventure movie with a romantic twist, is directed by John Owen. Starring Rajeev Khandelwal and Lekha Washington, this film is about Peter, a football crazy motorcycle taxi rider, who decides to turn his back on Goa and quit his job – until his sleazy loan shark boss Bosco persuades him to do one last job – the job that will change his life forever. The film is scheduled for a March 2010 release.

PAAN SINGH TOMAR, the true epic journey of a talented runner who turned into a rebel, has been directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia. It stars Irrfan Khan and Mahie Gill, and will be released in March 2010.

Siddharth Roy Kapur, CEO, UTV Motion Pictures said, “While 2009 has been a low year for the film industry in general, we released some interesting films which etched themselves in the minds of the audience. DEV.D, KAMINEY and WAKE UP SID created new benchmarks for what can now be perceived as commercial cinema. Our slate for 2010 promises to be a very entertaining mix and we are very excited to be bringing audiences such a wide array of interesting cinema.”

The much-anticipated releases by UTV in 2010 include Prakash Jha’s RAAJNEETI, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s GUZAARISH, Anees Bazmee’s THANK YOU, Rajkumar Gupta’s NO ONE KILLED JESSICA, Vishal Bhardwaj’s EK BATAA SAAT, Aamir Khan Productions’ DELHI BELLY and PEEPLI LIVE.

Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Milan Talkies is based on the Malegaon film industry. Yes, they have one there too
By Subhash K Jha (MUMBAI MIRROR; July 06, 2009)

Tigmanshu Dhulia

There’s more to Malegaon than the September 2008 bomb blasts. This may be a surprise to many, but Malegaon is home to a thriving small-scale movie industry, which produces films based on Bollywood blockbusters. So for every Sholay and Don, there’s a Malegaon Ka Sholay and Malegaon Ka Don featuring an Amitabh Bachchan lookalike.

Malegaon’s movie mania has inspired director Tigmanshu Dhulia to make a film on the subject. Currently wrapping up a film based on long-distance runner Pan Singh Tomar, an excited Tigmanshu said, “My film, Milan Talkies, will be based on the Malegaon film industry, which copies all Bollywood blockbusters. I’ve discovered this amazing world there.”

Milan Talkies will be a spoof and will be shot in Malegaon. Irrfan Khan will play a wheeler-dealer who makes duplicate films. Tigmanshu wants no one but Ayesha Takia Azmi to play the female lead. He asked, “Is she doing films after marriage?”

RIMI SEN

Rimi Sen will now soon be seen playing an obese woman in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s upcoming next, SHOWMAN starring Govinda, Celina Jaitley and South star Harish alongside. Rimi has been asked to put on an astounding 160 kg for her role. But well, it seems, most of her weight shall be added up by padding.

About the film, Rimi says, “It will be too early to reveal anything more but I can assure you that the role is very interesting. Most of my time went in just putting on and removing the make-up.”

SHOWMAN is being directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia who has to his credit the critically acclaimed HAASIL and CHARAS. Incidentally, SHOWMAN was earlier titled KING CON and was the same film which was in news for Govinda’s whimsical ways on the sets. Govinda plays a smooth talking con man in the film and both Celina and Rimi play his love interests.
