parmeet sethiIn a brief chit – chat with actor turned director Parmeet Sethi speaks his heart to Lipika Varma.

What is Badmaash Company all about?

This story is about four friends. I have always been reading about different scams. Telgi scam, bank scam. The society around you dictates you at times. I was influenced by these scams that I would read and always wondered how they got away with it. It’s nothing real on reel. This is a fictional story which I finished writing in six days.

Is Badmaash Company a film on scam jobs?

At the face of it, it may seem to be a film on a con job scam, where the protagonists do wrong things in the right way, but in effect it is actually a journey of four different friends. It is about their coming of age, their relationship, their understanding of life etc. A lot happen to them fast and the impact it has on their lives forms the crux of the subject. It is a film which has an emotional base. I feel that any day any film with emotional base will connect to people easily.

Shahid’s hopes lie on ‘Badmaash Company’ now

‘But then we should be able to sail through after accounting DVD and satellite sales’

Looking at the way makers are coming up with this statement week after week (sometimes even months before the release, as Himesh Reshammiya did in case of ‘Radio’), one wonders if producers have stopped worrying completely about theatrical sales. Of course for big films, it is imperative that there are good foot falls in theaters. But when it comes to smaller films like ‘Phoonk 2′, there is so much of dependency (and comfort) when it comes to eventual recovery of amount spent in making them.

Shahid is Crowded and Annoyed. Pining For Time Alone to Prepare For Mausam

Shahid has been wrenched away from the ‘think’ of things. Just when he needed to feel like a solitary brooder for his father’s film where he plays an Airforce officer and hence a man who spends many hours flying high above the noise and bustle of day to day life, he had to shooed back into noisy civilization.

The double dose of publicity for his two forthcoming films Paathshaala and Badmaash Company have come in the way of Shahid’s deep and purportedly uninterrupted preparation for his father’s film Mausam. Shahid who plays a romantic loner in Mausam was just getting into his solitary space taking long mo’bike rides in the night to understand what it feels like to be completely on his own, when he has been yanked back into the thick of things with a series of never-ending publicity and promotion for two films.

Shahid Kapoor refuses to shoot wearing vest

Shahid Kapoor, who toned his body up quite a bit for Kaminey, seems to love that look of his and finds it perfect. His refusal to listen to first-time director Parmeet Sethi and choreographer Ahmed Khan on the sets of Yash Raj Films’ Badmaash Company, his refusal to do retakes and his crabbiness have already been in the news for a while now. Just when one thought that he wouldn’t create anymore trouble for the film unit, Shahid had to be difficult again yesterday.

While shooting for the movie’s title song at MT Studios, Shahid refused to listen to the unit again. The song required him to wear a white vest in a pub but he showed his reluctance to do so.
