Halle Berry John Wick 3

Los Angeles, April 10 : Actress Halle Berry says she did “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” as it gave her a chance to kick ageism in the face.

Asked if it is true that she took up “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” without reading the script, Berry said: “Yes, because I was such a fan of ‘John Wick’ 1 and 2. I knew what it would require of me and the chance to kick ageism in the face.”

“People at a certain age believe they are done and cannot do certain stuff. I knew that this would give me a very great platform to show something different which is very important,” she added.

The “John Wick” franchise, starring Keanu Reeves, has raised the bar for action films mainly due to its departure from the cliche action aesthetic.

The third chapter of the film franchise “John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum” released last year. It will air in India on April 12 on Star Movies. Stuntman-turned-director Chad Stahelski helmed the third movie as well. It also stars Laurence Fishburne, Mark Dacascos, Asia Kate Dillon, Ian McShane and Lance Reddick.

Talking about how she got the role in the third part, Berry said: “I got a phone call from my agent and my manager saying ‘They’re doing a 3 rd installment of John Wick. Did you ever see John Wick 1 and 2?’ I said ‘Oh my god! I love it! What do you mean if I ever saw it? Of course I’ve seen it. Are they making a three?!’ they said ‘Yeah and there is a possible role for a bad a** female, would you be interested?’ I said ‘Call up Chad right now and get a meeting for me, I have to be in this movie!'”

Mumbai, May 31 : Actress Vidya Balan is spending her lockdown period by watching classic films, and says it is great to watch older films and revisit the memories.

Asked how she is spending quality time with her family during lockdown, Vidya said: “I love watching my films on television with my entire family. It is always great to watch older films and revisit the memories grooving on evergreen songs.”

The actress is admired by fans for her roles in movies like “Tumhari Sulu” and “Lage Raho Munna Bhai”. She essayed the role of a radio jockey in both the films.

Talking about her experience being as an RJ, Vidya said: “I think the most fascinating aspect of an RJ is that you have to convey everything through your voice. Yet with this challenge, it’s great to see how RJs connect so beautifully with the listeners. In both my films ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ and ‘Tumhari Sulu’, the RJs were completely different people with completely different styles and I think that was very challenging for me.”

The actress said that she “can never get bored of watching” her film “Tumhari Sulu” again and again on “television especially when I see my family enjoying it”.

“‘Tumhari Sulu’ is a story that gives hope to viewers that everything is possible. Whenever you need inspiration please watch the film,” she added.
