The buzz in the air is that the pretty Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra who won the prestigious National Award in the best actress category for her role in Fashion is adamant not to have her hair chopped for Anurag Basu’s forthcoming movie, Silence. Priyanka is in the habit of doing a thorough research on the character and its look that she is about to essay in a movie before she enacts the role, to look exactly like the character.

Silence of director Anurag Basu is taking Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra to a mental asylum! Well, don’t start smelling something fishy because Anurag Basu is not unresponsive towards the leading lady of Bollywood. The director is making a film titled ‘Silence’ with Priyanka in the lead role.
As things stand today, ‘Kites’ should take one of the biggest opening of the year so far. There is no reason why this Hrithik Roshan starrer shouldn’t find itself in the same bracket as ‘Housefull’ and ‘My Name Is Khan’, the two films that have hovered around the 30 crore mark as far as the first weekend collections in India are concerned. While it is a given that Hrithik will break the record of ‘Dhoom 2’ as far as opening is concerned, it has to be seen that what kind of distance does the film travels after the first weekend euphoria is over.
An arrival of a Hrithik Roshan film is an event in itself, just as is in case of Aamir Khan starrers. Add to that the exclusivity tag that he comes with and one can pretty much foresee a huge film here from the house of Roshans. Hrithik’s last full fledged appearance was in ‘Jodhaa Akbar’ which came two years back though he did have an extended guest appearance in ‘Luck By Chance’ a year back. Now is the time for his fans to see him in all his glory and the kind of promotional built up which this Anurag Basu directed film has seen over last one year, it can be safely assumed that ‘Kites’ will see at least 80% opening.
Anurag Basu is a personality to reckon with. Belonging to a family of performing Arts and theatres he did have an inclination to set a mark for himself on the bollywood horizon.” Yes! I am a qualified engineer but I have lived and learnt about art and culture belonging to a family who enjoyed performing theatres.
‘Kites’ is all set to release in a fortnight from now and the journey, which started 2.5 years back for Hrithik Roshan, Anurag Basu and Rakesh Roshan, is finally coming to an end. What does the man at the hot seat, Anurag Basu, feel about the film finally reaching a finishing mark? After all this is the longest time that he has spent on the making of any film of his and the delay in release can be expected to be frustrating.”First and foremost let me confirm that there has been no delay in the release of ‘Kites’.
It is a perception that has been built over a period of time but we never ever announced the release date. The only time it was done, that was for the month of May and we are sticking to that”, says Basu whose last release was ‘Life In A Metro’.But what does he feel about the perception which has been built? Has he been able to pencil in on the reasons?
