No more cameos for Madhur Bhandarkar (Film Snippets)March 4th, 2009 - 9:55 am ICT by IANS
New Delhi, March 4 (IANS) After a blink and miss appearance in hit film “Fashion”, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar says he has no plans of doing a cameo again as he knows he is a “bad actor”.
“I did a cameo in my film ‘Fashion’, which I believe was very bad and that’s why I don’t want to repeat the same. I can make people act but acting is not my forte,” Bhandarkar said.
“A lot of people asked me to act in reality shows as a participant and they were offering me a huge amount of money, but I couldn’t accept it since I’m a bad actor and a worse dancer,” he added.
The director is currently busy making his film “Jail”, which stars Neil Nitin Mukesh and Mugdha Godse.
No ‘Bhoothnath’ sequel, says director
There was a buzz in Bollywood that a sequel was being made to the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer “Bhoothnath”, but director Vivek Sharma has brushed aside all these rumours.
“I don’t think there’s any reason for a sequel for ‘Bhoothnath’ as the culmination of the film has been on a proper story. It has had a proper ending,” said Sharma.
“Though I do have an idea and a story and if Mr. Bachchan agrees, then I can think of taking it forward in terms of a film, may be early next year. But I’m not really sure as I get bored very easily with a project once it is done. Anyway, I don’t find any reason taking ‘Bhoothnath’ forward as a series,” he added.
Sharma is at present working on Vashu Bhagnani’s “Kal Kissne Dekha”.
Murli Sharma plays cop yet again in ‘13B’
Character actor Murli Sharma, who has played a policeman in several films, is set to don the same hat yet again for horror flick “13B” even though he admits he is tired of it.
“Every time I make up my mind to move beyond a cop’s role, I end up doing it in the next project. Not that I don’t enjoy such a role, it’s just that I would not like to limit myself. In this movie I play a cop who gets into everything else, except for policing crime and criminals. It’s a thriller and I fight the unseen,” said Murli, who has played a cop in films like “Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na”, “Black Friday” and “Maqbool”.
“13B”, which stars R. Madhavan and Neetu Chandra in lead roles, is set to release Friday.
