Posted in Movies with tags , , , on August 26, 2019 by saifalikhanonline

Filmmaker Sriram Raghavan, who is set to direct a film on the life of youngest Param Vir Chakra recipient Arun Khetarpal, says it is the most challenging subject for him.

Dinesh Vijan will be producing the biopic which is tentatively titled “Ekkis”.

“Dinesh offered me this film and when I heard it, I found it interesting. ‘Ekkis’ is a working title. We are set in 1970s. It is the story of two eras. We have finished the script and are doing a rewrite and all,” Raghavan said.

“We have enough people from military on board. These things you can’t get it wrong one bit. When you are working on a real story it is your responsibility to get everything right and stay as true and authentic as possible. It is all the more challenging for me as it is not my zone, I am doing something else. But I liked the story so I am doing it,” he added.

Posted in Movies with tags , , , , , on March 24, 2019 by saifalikhanonline

After the success of Go Goa Gone, it was time for its sequel. Actor Saif Ali Khan was all set to take things up a notch, and blocked his dates for the shoots as well. But the producers reportedly had a bitter fight, and ˜Go Goa Gone 2: Babaji Ki Booty” went for a toss.

“The producers had locked Saif’s dates but now, after the fallout between Dinesh Vijan and Raj and DK, the film is in limbo. The makers, who had earlier collaborated on producing Stree (2018), were fighting a legal battle after there were disputes regarding profit sharing on the film. They are trying to sort the issue out so that work on the sequel can progress,” says a source, who was quoted by a news publication. Slated to release in March, there are possibilities that the film may never take off.

Earlier, Saif enthralled the audience with his performance in the first season of ˜Sacred Games”, and will soon be seen in the second one as well. The actor will also feature in the upcoming period drama “Taanaji: The Unsung Warrior”.

After the stupendous success of Stree in 2018, producer Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films has been looking forward to the next slate of his releases in 2019 with interesting stories. He was even looking forward to the sequel of Go Goa Gone as the producer was happy to collaborate with the cast again especially Saif Ali Khan. But, the dispute with writers and filmmakers of Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, the producer decided to part ways with them on the project. While there hasn’t been a clear update on it, Dinesh Vijan has finally spoken about Go Goa Gone 2.

Dinesh Vijan revealed that he has had word with Saif Ali Khan on the sequel. “I spoke to Saif. And we need to get a script in place. That is the most important thing. So when spoke, he said that let’s find a great script out. And I think we are gonna get that started. And it has to be good on paper, right? There’s no sense of doing a sequel if what we have on paper is not strong. So, I think the intent is to get that done. So there is no point on making a sequel until you are strong on paper. I think that’s what Saif also believes and that’s what I also believe. We have wanted to but we haven’t done a film for a while. The intent is to, you know, put together a fantastic script and we’ll get into it once Luka Chuppi releases,” Dinesh said.

Go Goa Gone 2 will bring back the original cast – Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Kemmu, Vir Das, Anand Tiwari together for yet another interesting story.

Directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK on how Saif Ali Khan will sport a different avatar in Go Goa Gone sequel

In the five years since Saif Ali Khan’s Go Goa Gone (2013) introduced the genre of zombie comedy in Bollywood, director duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK have often expressed their desire to helm a sequel. Now, the makers are ready to roll the project early next year. Tentatively titled Babaji Ki Booty, the second edition will see Khan reprise his role as Boris.

However, his look will be drastically different from the blonde hair-sporting, gun-toting avatar he flaunted in the first instalment.

DK says, “The story kicks off five years after the first edition. We are trying to see how Boris may have changed in the interim.” Nidimoru adds that they intend to zero in on his on-screen avatar by January.

“We have a few sketches drawn out and will crack the look by January. It could be something more mature or more shocking.” The second instalment will see Kunal Kemmu, Vir Das and Anand Tiwari reprise their roles. Reports suggest that they will be seen fighting aliens, this time around. Nidimoru says, ” We’ll head towards an unexpected direction again.”

When ‘Go Goa Gone’ released in 2013, the film was the first of its kind – an Indian zombie comedy – and thanks to its edgy plot, it amassed a fan base. Directed by Raj and DK, the film featured Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Khemu, Vir Das, Puja Gupta and Anand Tiwari.

Now, we hear that a sequel to the film is in the works. In a recent interview, producer Dinesh Vijan shared that ‘Go Goa Gone 2’ will go on floors next year. At the moment, they are waiting for the director duo to finish the script, a draft of which will be ready by the end of this month.

Talking about his association with Saif Ali Khan, Dinesh said that the most exciting part about ‘Go Goa Gone 2’ is getting to work with Saif again. He said that it has been a while and that he really missed him. In the past, the two have collaborated as producers on films like ‘Love Aaj Kal’ (2009), ‘Cocktail’ (2012) and ‘Agent Vinod’ (2015). Dinesh even addressed the reports that the two had their share of differences, but that’s a thing of the past.

Open endings in Saif Ali Khan’s ‘Go Goa Gone’, ‘Stree’ make for a sequel: Raj Nidimoru

The overwhelming response to their films with unique plots — zombie apocalypse in “Go Goa Gone” and the urban legend of Nale Ba in “Stree” — has inspired Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK to take these stories forward.

The director duo have started work on “Go Goa Gone” follow-up. The 2013 film featured Saif Ali Khan, Vir Das and Kunal Kemmu that went on to be a surprise hit.

This year, Raj and DK wrote and produced “Stree”. The film starred Rajkummar Rao, Shraddha Kapoor and Pankaj Tripathi.

“Both the films have an open-ended story because we think as a filmmaker there is more to it. In case of ‘Go Goa Gone’, the first one was unique because there was no precedent to it, like a stoner, a slacker film.

“When we make part two, we give little bit of that (world) and bring something new. Our challenge is that this film should stand out on its own and make it as unique and wacky as possible,” Raj told .
