‘Andhadhun’ is not a dark film: Ayushmann Khurrana

AndhaDhun Poster

Mumbai, Oct 2 : Actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who is gearing up for the release of “Andhadhun” later this week, has said the film is not a dark one as usually most suspense thrillers are.

Ayushmann was at a special screening of the film here on Monday, along with his “Dam Laga Ke Haisha” co-star Bhumi Pednekar and younger brother and “Dangal” actor Aparshakti Khurrana.

Talking about the suspense thriller “Andhadhun” that will release on October 5, Ayushmann said: “It’s an entertaining and quirky film because in every other scene, you will get to see some thrilling and exciting stuff and that is the specialty of the film.

“Being a blind man, I have witnessed a murder and that’s the strangest thing about this film and that’s how story of the film progresses.

“In the trailer we have shown that each artist has his secret so, after watching the film you will get to know about his secret.”

Ayushmann who plays a blind piano artist, said he prepared a lot to get into skin of the character. “I think I haven’t been part of such a difficult script and I haven’t played such a difficult character in any of my films yet.

“I visited a blind school for three months and also learned to play the piano for as long.”

Ayushman, who has two releases in quick succession — “Andhadhun” and “Badhaai Ho” — when asked how he felt about the quick releases, the actor said: “Last year, I was a bit tense because the back to back, two films of mine ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ and ‘Shubh Mangal Savdhan’ released. I had thought one of the film would get affected because of the close release but both worked out well.

“So, I am hoping that this time around again these two films will do well because the genres are completely different.”

Asked why he and his “Andhadhun” team have not promoted the film much, Ayushmann said: “I think this film’s genre is such that you can’t talk much about it.

“It’s a suspense thriller and everyone is asking me whether I am really a blind man in the film or not. It was our strategy to not promote this film as a regular one.

“I think this film will run on word of mouth and people will realise what the film is when they watch it.”

“Andhadhun” a romantic thriller directed by Sriram Raghavan, also stars Tabu and Radhika Apte in other lead roles.

Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan addressed the trolls who have been commenting on her post about her skin tone. The star kid posted a beautiful photo of herself and then a series of comments she has been receiving from Instagram users calling her ‘kaali’. Before that, Suhana posted a note which read as “For all the people who don’t speak Hindi, I just thought I’d give a bit of context. The word for the colour black in Hindi is ‘Kaala’. The word ‘kaali’ is used to describe a female who is dark-skinned. And it almost never has positive connotations.”

The 20-year-old started by writing, “There’s a lot going on right now and this is one of the issues we need to fix!! this isn’t just about me, it’s about every young girl/boy who has grown up feeling inferior for absolutely no reason. Here are just a few of the comments made about my appearance. I’ve been told I’m ugly because of my skin tone, by full-grown men and women, since I was 12 years old.”

Suhana further wrote, “Other than the fact that these are actual adults, what’s sad is that we are all Indian, which automatically makes us brown – yes we come in different shades but no matter how much you try to distance yourself from the melanin, you just can’t. Hating on your own people just means that you are painfully insecure.”

Shekhar Kapur

Celebrated filmmaker Shekhar Kapur, 74, has been appointed president of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) Society which runs the prestigious film school in Pune, people familiar with the matter said on Tuesday.

Kapur, who is known for movies from the Indian superhero film ‘Mr India’ to ‘Bandit Queen’ based on the incidents in the life of Phoolan Devi and an acclaimed biopic on Queen Elizabeth, will hold the post till March 3, 2023.

According to a person aware of the developments, the ministry of information and broadcasting has also appointed Kapur as the chairperson of the FTII governing council.

The tenure of the earlier members of the society had ended in March 2020. The other members of the governing council will be appointed soon, the person cited above said.

Kapur will head the premier film school at a time when, like many other colleges and universities, it is also grappling with the challenges posed by Covid-19.

The FTII had earlier declared the results of the entrance test and is planning the future course. Online classes and training courses have been continuing.

“Wherever it is difficult for students to attend classes, the institute has been putting up the material on the website,” said the person cited above.

Information and Broadcasting minister Prakash Javadekar said “Kapur, who has a vast experience, will add more value to the Institute. I am sure everybody will welcome his appointment”.

“Shekhar Kapur, as a reputed film maker of international stature, is without doubt an excellent choice. FTII welcomes him as its Chairman. It’s come a full circle from Dev Anand who started his career working at Prabhat Studio within the campus of FTII today, to his nephew Shekhar Kapur as Chairman of FTII,” said Bhupendra Kainthola, Director, FTII.

The previous FTII chief was BP Singh known for his role as the lead actor in tele-serial CID. Singh was recently appointed by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) to its general assembly.

The Film and Television Institute of India was set up by the Centre in 1960 in the premises of the erstwhile Prabhat Studios in Pune. It conducts various film related courses including on acting, direction, sound recording, editing and cinematography.
