Bollywood filmmakers have their own favourites
Bollywood has a new dispensation. It’s not about getting into a camp or belonging to a clique, but clearly – filmmakers are identifying with stars, who they perceive as being "lucky" for their projects based on their Box Office appeal and success.
Vidya Balan set the ball rolling with her successful performances in first The Dirty Picture and then, Kahaani. And director Sujoy Ghosh lost no time in declaring that there was no question of doing a film after Kahaani without repeating the talented actress as his lead protagonist. There is already a buzz in Bollywood that top actors like the Khan triumvirate – Aamir, Salman and Shah Rukh, are showing interest in Vidya and her work. None of them have worked with her as yet and would naturally be keen on doing so, now.
Actually, credit for this trend ought to go to Sajid Khan, who started it long ago by signing up Akshay Kumar for all his films after Heyy Babyy. But with Sajid, it’s also to do with friendship. Sajid, who is confident that Akshay will prove good for him again in Housefull 2 that releases next month, says, "Akshay has always been special to me and it’s a pleasure to work with him. He will always be a part of my films. Heyy Babyy was Akshay’s first 50 crore grosser and Housefull 2 will surpass all that."...being a human...
