Till about a year back, if someone would have stated that a Prakash Jha film would possibly revive an ailing Bollywood, he would have been scoffed at. However, given the current situation when the film promises a solid content coupled with a very strong cast (comprising of both stars as well as talent), ‘Rajneeti’ is pretty much being looked as a saviour here. ‘Rajneeti’ has become really hot over last two months and with every passing day, there has been huge curiosity build up around this political drama.

The Ra. 1 is surely a unique movie in the making. The movie has created a lot of buzz since the time of its conception. The movie, which features Shah Rukh Khan, Arjun Rampal and Kareena Kapoor, is produced by Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment.
The movie belongs to a science-fiction cum superhero category with all the spices of a usual Bollywood flick. The film is scheduled to release in 2011 and is being directed by Anubhav Sinha. Currently, the shoot of this movie is going on.
The flick reportedly has many stunts in it, which are going to be performed by Shah Rukh Khan. There have been regular posts about the movie on his social networking web page.
Recently, Shah Rukh uploaded a picture on a web site about the camera set up for the shoot of a scene. In SRK’s words, filming for Ra. 1 has been a “painful and gainful experience.” He is also highly impressed by the way the unit is working on the flick.
SRK further posted, “Yes Ra. 1 is a kind of ‘sci-fi meets superhero and genie in the bottle’ genre but shrouded in a typical fun filled happy Hindi film.”
We expect to hear more on the film from SRK!
Rajneeti, the Prakash Jha movie, has run into many controversies so far. In its early phase, Nana Patekar walked out of the project and stopped shooting for the film. Then it had faced allegations by a script writer Yogendra Konkar, who stated that the script of the movie is similar to a script written by him.
The controversy saga continued as some of the Congress Party workers accused that the role portrayed by Katrina Kaif in Rajneeti, is based on their leader Sonia Gandhi and the film tries to defame her.
Not many would be aware of the fact that Arjun Rampal belongs to an army background. His maternal grandfather, Brigadier Gurdayal Singh, is an army personality to reckon with, apart from being an efficient engineer as well. He had contributed in making guns for GCF factory situated in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradhesh. The factory has a special gun named after his grandfather. The gun is named ‘Gurdayal Gun.’
Arjun Rampal speaks his heart to Lipika Varma disclosing about his being women’s man, not being linked, his kids, films, being written off as a stiff model,and his strongest support mom and many more things
Arjun Rampal is one actor who progressed slowly and steadily on the silver screen Probably destiny has brought him onto the lime light in the bollywood. Just in recent past from his successful film ”Rock on” and OSHO there has been no looking back for Arjun. Call it luck, destiny or hard work but yes! Arjun has all the reasons to be rejoicing for having made up onto the silver screen. Although the critics had written him off stating,” Being from the modeling field Arjun need not even try to turn into an actor. He is too stiff to be an actor.”
The tension over the censoring of Raajneeti is over. But not without some vital scenes featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Arjun Rampal getting the chopper. Arjun Rampal’s love-making scene with Katrina has been reduced drastically.
Says the director Prakash Jha regretfully, “It was a very aesthetically shot love making scene. Arjun and Katrina are two very beautiful people. And they made love to the camera. The Tribunal felt it was a bit too explicit for a ‘UA’ audience. I didn’t argue.”
For someone who was called teakwood for at least half a decade before seeing some acclaim coming his way, Arjun Rampal has come a long way indeed. It is difficult to believe that the man, who was considered gawky by quite a few during his initial days of ‘Pyaar Ishq Aur Mohabbat’ and ‘Deewanapan’, would one day rise up to the highest pedestal and turn out to be receipient of awards at the National level (for ‘Rock On’).
Now that ‘Housefull’ has got some good acclaim coming for him, Arjun Rampal is back on scene close to two years after the release of ‘Rock On’. He is also looking forward to the release of ‘Raajneeti’ this June where he has a pivotal role to play. Still, one wonders where Arjun was for most part of year 2009. Except for a sole release in the form of ‘Fox’ (which came and went without making any noise whatsoever), Arjun seemed totally missing from all the action?
The countdown has begun with just about a month to go for the release of Raajneeti. Prakash Jha’s magnum opus based on politics is among the most anticipated films this year. The final campaign trail kicked off at an uptown surburban hotel recently. It had the entire team and members of the media in attendance. A surprise element of the campaign was revealed then.
Celebrities are known to experiment with their hairdos because of the demands of the script. While Urmila Matondkar cropped her hair short for Bhoot, Shabana Azmi went bald for her role in Water. Speaking of bald, we hear that Arjun Rampal is now going to sport a bald look for his new movie Ra.One.
We have seen Arjun Rampal in several hairdos. While he had donned short hair for his initial films such as Elaan, he had shoulder length hair in EMI. The heartthrob then went on to have almost waist length hair in Rock On.
