Tarun Khanna currently being appreciated in FNP’s Media’s short film “Pills” opens up!

Published

Tarun Khanna, who is seen in FNP Media and Fillme Networks Private Ltd’s short film “The Pill”, has never shied away from speaking his mind. Not one to mince words, the actor, who has been a part of the industry for almost two decades now, spoke about the changes he has witnessed in the industry over the years, and said, “Nothing much has changed in the entertainment industry in the last 50 years. There was nepotism before, and it still exists.”
“People still get a chance to work in films only because they are related to somebody or the other. People who are from outside the industry never get a chance. Still you cannot suppress the real talent like Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao. The film industry in itself gives a lot of encouragement to nepotism and they don’t let people from outside to flourish. They make it a point that they should only give chances to people who are only from the industry, who are their home grown kids that are there. Apart from that a lot of competition has increased, that is all I can say,” he added.
From mythological characters like Mahadev to Balaram and Ravana, to other reel characters, Tarun has played a variety of roles on-screen. He said it’s a conscious effort to pick different characters.
“The audience has liked me a lot in the role of lord Shiva. So people know that this guy has got acceptance of the audience in this particular character so everybody keeps on offering me lord Shiva’s role or they keep on offering me roles similar to that historical or mythological character. So when I got the opportunity to play Chanakya I jumped at it. When Siddharth Tiwari asked me will you go bald for it I immediately said yes because I knew that if people see me with the jatas of Shiva and all of a sudden they see a guy who’s totally bald, they will know that I am happy to explore,” he said.
“And then when this film came my way I immediately said yes because I really want to experiment. I feel there is a lot of connect that I can make with a certain segment of the audience who is not aware of me as an actor. Those people who are not connected to me as yet and through this kind of product I can reach out to them also. That is why I thought I should take up these kinds of projects also and in future also I plan to take up something of a similar nature. I’ve done another web series which has got a lot of bold content, and my only condition when I am doing a bold content is that it shouldn’t be shot cheaply, it should be shot in a very aesthetic manner,” he added.
So which genre are you most comfortable with? “I am most comfortable playing a warrior or a political figure, a strong character like Shiv or Chanakya or any king for that matter. In modern times I would love to play a cop or an army general or may be a CBI officer. I am very comfortable with these kinds of roles because my personality is such, I have an authoritative voice and personality, so it comes very naturally to me,” Tarun concluded

By

The much-awaited and audience’s favourite show “Bigg Boss” is back with its fifteenth season with a special jungle theme. The premiere night started with Salman Khan shaking a leg to “Jungle hai aadhi raat hai” and “Swag se swagat”. Like every season, the superstar gave a warm welcome to the contestants and the third inmate to join the show was the cute Vidhi Pandya.

Wearing a pink floral lehenga, Vidhi entered the show while dancing to the popular track “Param sundari”. She was quite excited to meet Salman and introduced herself as a hardworking lazy girl. She told Salman she likes to work but loves to laze around. She even revealed that she is a good cook and can cook food for any number of people given the vegetables have been chopped. She said that she is like a chef because the magic lies in how you add the spices. This left Salman in splits.

Not just that she even shared how she had the chance to get a pic clicked with Salman when she was 18. But Vidhi complained that the pic was very blurry and asked Salman if she could get a pic with him on the stage. Well, Salman happily obliged and clicked the pic himself.

Later, when it was time to face the “Awesome Mirror”, it defined Vidhi as “Aalsi, aarampasand and chulbuli”. And as for what animal of the jungle she is, the mirror called her a “panda”. Vidhi got excited with the response and revealed that even her friends call her that.

Salman then called the next contestant Simba Nagpal and they both were given a situation which will help them win the survival kit. Unfortunately, they lost it and they were made to take the tough route to enter the “Bigg Boss” house. Though she was scared, Vidhi did a wonderful job and made her way to the main gate of the house where the other inmates welcomed her.

And guess what, when Vidhi went up to the “Vishwa Sundari” tree and tried talking to her, while the other housemates told her that she doesn’t talk to everyone, luckily she got a reply. Well, this definitely left her elated and she said that she feels special.

Well, Vidhi is definitely going to keep us entertained with her funny and bubbly antics and we wish her a happy, peaceful and long journey in the “Bigg Boss” house.

Ziddi Dil Maane Na actor Amarkant Dubey has opened up about his character that provides comic relief. “One day suddenly I called up (producer) Sudhir to ask for someone’s number so he said that he’s got a role for me. I gave the audition and got selected. In the serial their academy is for commando training. So the mess/canteen in the academy’s incharge is Baba Dilbagh. He’s in charge and chef too. As he’s old and working for 16 years in the mess/ canteen, he has jolly nature and does all the masti. Whenever they want to twist the story, they bring Baba Dilbagh. He’s a comic relief. It’s a very good role. I have certain restrictions Sudhir thought through before giving me the role. As I stay in the mess, I don’t have to walk much,” he said.
His character is a cook, who is a foodie. “I am a big foodie too. The character is Punjabi. As I have done a lot of work in the field of voicing, I didn’t face any problem. As I am an actor, I’ve done a lot of work so I didn’t face much difficulty. I really like the character. I believe everyday we get to learn so as and when the scene is performed, I get into the character. If the director likes the scene, I feel happy,” he said. Nowadays, there are good roles for actors of all ages even those who are over 50 years old. “In our times, we used to be fools (bewakoof). These days, the kids are very intelligent and mature. In our generation there was no maturity; it was rare. It used to come really late in our generation. This generation becomes mature fast. They make their own decisions and they make the right decisions. With them I get to learn and understand new things,” said the veteran actor. “People say that in my age bracket, there are a lot of artists who have stopped working so there are not many artists of this age. If I get work, I will do it. Now I am free. With my limitations, if someone offers me work I’ll definitely do it. I can do all sorts of work. I have done a lot of negative roles. I did positive ones as well,” he added. Ziddi… is backed by with Seema and Sudhir’s Sunshine production house. “The sponsored programs that I used to write for radio, I used to direct for an ad agency in Worli, Sudhir came there for voicing. Sudhir had come to Mumbai just then. He would come there and was a very good voice artist. Then we had a good tuning. I had a sponsored program for which I wrote and directed 100 to 150 stories. There as a hero, I used to take Sudhir. Then Seema came and they got married afterwards. My association with Sudhir is from that time. Sudhir would respect me,” he said.

Sahil Khattar: BeingIndian helped people notice my talent, 83 will make them realise I can act, and with 200 they would know I can play a villain too

Sahil Khattar worked as a radio jockey, YouTuber, host and actor, Sahil Khattar has explored different mediums. And, he has enjoyed working on all of them.

“The more you work in different mediums, the more experience you gain. But over the years I have realised that the digital appeals to me the most, which is why I’ll never leave that space and will continue making content for my channels Khattarnaak and BeingIndian. I also like doing the WWE series on TV, enjoyed hosting Dance India Dance and anchoring for cricket. I also learnt a lot during my stint as a radio jockey with Red FM. While shooting for 83, I have also reliased the fun and learning that happens during filmmaking. So yes, I would like to do all of these throughout my life. If you can work in all the mediums, why restrict yourself?” he says.

Sahil considers every new project in his career as a new landmark. But if he has to choose then he feels that forming BeingIndian and then being part of 83 are the two big landmarks in his professional life so far.

“BeingIndian changed me both as a person and a content creator. It changed people’s outlook towards me. They started noticing my talent as an anchor, performer and also found me to be a funny guy. 83, on the other hand, will make people realise that I can act too. Now 200 is generating good response.” he adds.

Talking about who inspires him in his career, Sahil takes the name of actor Shah Rukh Khan, “Anybody who wants to do something on his own wants to look up to him because he’s made it himself. And the one guy who will surprise everybody is Farhan Akhtar. In Bollywood I look up to Farhan Akhtar a lot because he’s multi-talented. He’s not just an actor or a director he’s also a writer and singer. He’s the be-all and end-all of everything. Actually, I am a fan of his humour. I always tell a lot of my friends that if someday I look hopeless, I have told my friends to put up a tent outside Farhan Akhtar’s house for me. In Hollywood, I love Seth Rogan, Sasha Baron Cohen and Rickey Gervais. All these people are my inspiration,” he ends.

So how does he unwind after a hard day’s work? “I love playing FIFA and snooker on my play station. Chit chatting with friends and spending time with family also makes me happy. I also watch a lot of content and sports too,” he ends.
