Rebecca remake on its way!

Hiren Kotwani/ HT Style

Mumbai, May 13, 2006

After the surprising success of his film Aksar, in a large part thanks to Himesh Reshammiya's Jhalak dikhlaja track, Ananth Mahadevan has many projects planned.

"There are two films with T-Series, two sequels for Shyam Bajaj to complete the trilogy of Aksar  and one, titled Anamika, for a Rajasthan-based producer," informs Mahadevan. Agar is his second of the Aksar  trilogy. "But we still have to finalise the cast for it," he maintains, denying reports that Dino Morea, Koena Mitra and Celina Jaitley have been confirmed. "Actually Dino, Koena and Celina have been signed for Anamika," he clarifies.

When asked more about Anamika  he reveals, "Anamika  is my interpretation of Rebecca." Rebecca is a 1940 Alfred Hitchcock classic. While Morea will play the part originally essayed by Laurence Olivier, an actress other than Jaitley or Mitra will play the title role.

"It's not a fullfledged role, but a guest appearance," says the director, adding, "Most of the film will be shot in Rajasthan as the producer is helping us get some locations which are otherwise not easily available." Mahadevan will repeat Reshammiya too.

"Himesh is in top form presently and since I've already worked with him in Aksar and he'll be composing the music for the other two of the trilogy, he's on for Anamika and the T-Series films also. Sameer will be writing the lyrics for Anamika, which will go on the floors as soon as the rest of the cast is finalised."

There's no biz like show biz


The song you recorded for Rs 5,000 could net you a thousandfold via stage shows. Meena Iyer on the most dependable money-spinner for film stars and playback singers



   Alisha Chinai, who made a dazzling return to playback singing with Kajrare... (Bunty Aur Babli), has been on the road for the last eight months. Thanks to the song being a rage across continents, the singer has been doing the global concert beat for the past year, belting out encores for exuberant crowds.
   But it isn't only Alisha who's scored with Kajrare. The saucy number has given Aishwarya Rai an edge over all Bollywood heroines on the stage show circuit, changed the staid perception the audience had of Abhishek Bachchan, and made Amitabh Bachchan a sexy swinger at the age of 64. One rocking song, then, can change fortunes dramatically—but mostly via the medium of the concert, the super-lucrative platform that can pay artistes even more than their profession.
   With the concert being the money-spinner that it is, playback singers, composers like Annu Mallik and Himesh Reshammiya who insist on singing and the star brigade desperately vie for at least one item song in a film. Whatever the fate of their individual careers, 'item songs' can keep them alive on the stage shows for the next two seasons.
   Or perhaps even 20 seasons. Alka Yagnik, who has a repertoire of over 5,000 songs, admits that in her case, the ditty most in demand is Ek do teen from Tezaab (1988). "Till today, the first thing the audience wants is Ek do teen,'' says the songstress who has done concerts for over 25 years. "And I end every show with this song.''
   There are around 220 listed playback singers in Bollywood, including recent talent hunt finalists like Abhijeet Sawant, Amit Sana and Karunya. Only 30 of these survive on playback singing opportunities. The rest either sing in orchestras, concerts or sometimes even at weddings, private mehfils and even funerals. "Not that anyone is complaining,'' says music trade analyst Amod Mehra. "In fact, some of them have actually made their millions only by singing and dancing to their item songs at stage shows and private functions.''
   Mohammad Aziz, who lent his vocals to Amitabh Bachchan in Khuda Gawah (1992), admits that he would have died of starvation had it not been for concerts. "It's ironical but my career ground to a halt after the superhit music of Khuda Gawah,'' he admits rather sadly. "Had I not been doing concerts regularly, my kitchen fires would not burn.''
   "Stage shows and concerts have been big business for the last three decades,'' says Manohar Iyer, who runs 'Keep Alive', a vintage music show. "But just like after World War II everyone became a film producer, nowadays there are several unscrupulous concert organisers who've jumped into the fray. And their quality is very mediocre.''
   Manohar, who has no "famous singers'', still manages a full house everytime he puts up a show. "I have immense talent comprising runners-up of TV talent hunts and even chorus singers who can hold your attention for four hours without even a samosa break,'' he says.
   The runners-up may not make a killing. But established singers like Udit Narayan, Sonu Nigam, Kumar Sanu, Sukhwinder, Shaan, Alka Yagnik, Daler Mehndi and Sunidhi Chauhan can ask for the moon and get it. It is rumoured that Sonu gets between Rs 11 lakh and Rs 18 lakh for a show, with Sunidhi coming a close second. Today's hotshot, the nasal Himesh Reshammiya, is currently in the same price slot, while others like Kunal Ganjawala (Bheenge honth tere) and Zubin (Ya Ali) are also major draws. Even talent hunt winners like Abhijeet Sawant and Amit Sana reportedly net up to Rs 4 lakh per show. "But they have to part with a percentage to the channel because they're under contract,'' is the rumour.
   "The only ones who don't reap the fruits of a song continually are the producers,'' says Bollywood producer Kulbhushan Gupta. "A hit song is actually the intellectual property of the producer. Yet, it benefits the stars on whom it is picturised, the singer, the music composer and even the DJs who remix it. All these people exploit the song to the fullest on their shows, and yet the producer who has invested money and talent in it doesn't make a single penny. The issue has been raised in the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association several times but nothing concrete has been done yet to safeguard the interests of the producer.''
   Till this issue is resolved, singers, starlets show organisers will continue to make hay while the item song shines.

THE LAST DRAW


Mumbai turns up in large numbers for the grand Mumbai Mirror Housie finale


For seven Sundays now, we have seen enthusiasts from all over the city test their luck and get rewarded with goodies at Mumbai Mirror Housie Sundays at Ravindra Natya Mandir. From contestants winning overseas holidays to some being booed by the audience for sloppy slogans, from Allah ka banda Kailash Kher to number spinner Sanjay Jumaani, it has been one helluva Housie hotspot. 

Considering this ever-increasing tempo, the grand Mumbai Mirror Housie finale was guaranteed to be a blast. To ensure this, look who came to the party: Himesh Reshammiya, Ameesha Patel, Sunita Menon and Channel V veejay Yudi. And, of course, there were loads of grand prizes for contestants.

 Tarrot expert Sunita Menon, looking resplendent in green, was the first to call out the numbers. As she announced figures that proved lucky for most, Menon also provided gyan on some of the numerals. VJ Yudi stepped into RJ Harsh's shoes — his roaring voice belted out jokes that left the audience in splits.

 While young winner Pratik Biyani had no competition in staking his claim to the Videocon TV, others like Manjushree Bhattacharya and Jyoti Hemdev won theirs through a post-tie round  which Ameesha Patel, dressed in striped formals, hosted with style.

The housie tickets were being ticked amidst high drama when all of a sudden a 36 China Town chartbuster began playing. The audience eagerly waited for Himesh Reshammiyato arrive, and he did, in his signature attire of cap and casuals. The audience cheered as the three judges declared the lucky numbers. Then it was the turn of another number, the hit song 'Naam hai tera tera' which Himesh presented on special audience demand. 

 The grand prize of a Thomas Cook Dubai holiday voucher was bagged by Gazala Mansoor, again after a tie. Octogenarian Mrs Dhun, incidentally our oldest winner till date, took a TV home. With lots of mums winning the tickets, the event doubled up as a Mother's Day celebration of sorts! Other winners included Purvi Shah, Bhavesh Gosar and Manjushree Bhattacharya.

"This is my fourth Housie Sunday and I am really disappointed that it's over! I won a holiday to Thailand, last time I won a TV and even today I have won jewellery! I had come on a holiday from Coimbatore to Mumbai which I extended and I will certainly miss this newspaper back home!" says Prema Rajni, housewife and winner of a Thomas Cook Holiday voucher and Videocon TV. 

Another winner BR Jethmalani sounds as enthusiastic. "I have been playing here every Sunday, ever since I won a jewellery voucher," he says.
