Showcasing RGV's India 24/7
Any Ram Gopal Varma film always arouses a certain amount of curiosity and when you have the likes of Big B, Riteish Deshmukh, Paresh Rawal, Gul Panag and Rajpal Yadav as a part of the ensemble cast, expectations only get bigger. The film in question is India 24/7 (earlier titled Rann). Ramu is currently working at break neck speed (as he usually does) to complete this ambitious project. Bollywood Hungama brings you an exclusive character sketch of the interesting and diverse characters you would get to see in India 24/7
Vijay Harshwardhan Malik
When it comes to Vijay, who else can do it better than Amitabh Bachchan? Big B is back after his last RGV film which created quite a bit of stir in the industry, Sarkar Raj. The Raj prevails once again in Ramu's next biggie India 24/7. It was Big B who insisted RGV to add the name Vijay before Harshwardhan Malik to add the aura of a man who plays the founder of the first ever private news channel in the country - India 24/7, the Harvard-educated Malik is India's most respected media personality. He is a hardcore upholder of journalistic ethics. No wonder his Channel is battling for survival! The character sketch seems like Amitabh Bachchan is playing the role of real life founder of NDTV, Pranoy Roy. And if that's the case, we'll soon figure out the Barkha Dutt for you.
If you've got this image of Riteish Deshmukh as a comic actor who has always tickled your funny bone, you're soon going to be in for a surprise because according to Ram Gopal Varma, this is going to be the best ever work of Riteish Deshmukh in serious cinema. His look is of a young and dynamic man armed with a degree in journalism, Purab Shastri, as he is known in the film, truly believes that the media should be the check point for the people of a country, and therefore, it should report news, instead of manufacturing news. Purab's thinking sets him apart from most youngsters of this country. While everyone is chasing their individual dreams, Purab aggressively wants to work towards a better India. Needless to say, a clash between Purab and the powers-that-be looks inevitable. It is Dangerous to be Right when the Government is Wrong!
Anand Prakash Trivedi
Now this man just cannot be serious, can he? Get ready for the whacky jokes and one liners by Rajpal Yadav who plays a Creative Editor, Anand Prakash Trivedi, who has a knack for sensationalizing even the driest story and making it sound like the story of the decade with super catchy Headlines. More than any filmmaker, he makes far better movies. Only, he calls them News! Breaking News!
This is Gul Panag's first ever film with Ram Gopal Varma, and the way Ramu has portrayed his actresses in his earlier film, you'll be shocked to know that the dimpled beauty is covered from top to bottom in this film. Gul Panag plays Nandita Sharma. But an interesting comment coming from Gul said, "India 24/7 is a complete Riteish Deshmukh film. He is going to surprise one and all". As for the film, Gul plays an assistant of an Ad filmmaker, Nandita someday hopes to bag an independent feature film. She is in a live-in relationship with her boyfriend Purab. Nandita is smart, educated, and intelligent. She is also highly indifferent to what's happening in the country, and first thinks about herself and her man, before anything or anybody else. On both counts, she represents the youth of India.
