It is always interesting to interview Anurag Kashyap. The man is controversial, is willing to answer any n every sort of questions and has a vulnerable ease around him thats comforting in a strange manner. In fact i did a joint interview with Anurag and Kalki. Apart from 'That Girl In Yellow Boots', we spoke about their thoughts on Payal Rohatgi's barbs at their relationship, futue plans etc. When I asked what was it in Kalki that attracted Anurag, he simply said that the fact that she did not 'judge' him when he was passing through a very bad phase was something that was special for him. Its a long interview and a satisfying one. There are moments when the two indulge in typical husband-wife bantering. We are planning to include a few vignettes from such interactions in the final edit of the interview. It will make for alluring content :)
I saw the promo of 'Rockstar' today. Well, 'fantastic' has to be the word to describe it. Ranbir Kapoor shells out a wide palette of emotions. And does exceedingly well in various hues-n-shades. There is a reference to Jim Morrison, Rahman's music is captivating (wide palette of genres). But for me the surprise packet was Nargis. In an emotional outburst, she really looked like a seasoned actress. Also, she can be funny and the romantic moments between Ranbir-Nargis are scorching. The 'comfort level' between the duo is there for everyone to savour. It was great to see a glimpse of Shammi Kapoor sahab in the promo.
