When Aamir Khan accused Yash Chopra of lying: ‘It hurts tremendously…’ | Bollywood

Published

on

In a 1997 interview, Aamir Khan spoke about filmmakers Yash Chopra and Ram Gopal Varma. Reacting to comments made by the directors about Aamir in relation to their films Darr (1993) and Rangeela (1995), the actor had said ‘they simply tell lies’. Aamir also said it hurt him ‘tremendously when they do this’. Aamir had opened up about the filmmakers taking potshots at him in their interviews at the time.

Aamir was responding to the late Yash Chopra’s accusation that he wanted to know exactly how many punches he would give Sunny Deol and vice versa, when he was offered the role that Shah Rukh Khan eventually did in Darr. Meanwhile, in another interview, Ram Gopal Varma had discredited Aamir’s contribution to the success of Rangeela, which featured Aamir alongside Urmila Matondkar. In a 1997 interview, Aamir had said that Ram Gopal Varma ‘was feeling insecure because he was getting a lot of credit for the film’s success’. Aamir also responded to Yash Chopra’s statement that he had second thoughts about playing a negative role in Darr.

Aamir told Rediff, “They don’t fail to understand my approach. They simply tell lies. Yes it hurts tremendously when they do this. Regarding Yash Chopra’s accusation I’d like to put things in perspective. In the first narration he told me that Sunny (Deol) and I would fight but it would be Juhi (The woman whom I was obsessed with and harassing) who would kill me. That was poetic justice. Then I came to know that he had narrated a different climax to Sunny in which Sunny would kill me. So I asked for a joint narration. I was concerned about my screen image. I was certainly not going to be beaten up by a regular hero in a regular commercial film. See, I didn’t mind being beaten up by Deepak Tijori in Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar because that was a different kind of film. But if you have a casting coup like Sunny and me then I certainly don’t want to be beaten up by him or even Arnold Schwarzenegger for that matter. Is there anything wrong with that?”

Recalling his interaction with the late filmmaker, Aamir further added, “When Yashji told me it would be an equal fight in the climax I asked him what he meant by that and he said both of us would have an equal number of punches. These were his words, said in the presence of cameraman Manmohan Singh and scriptwriter Honey Irani. In any case it made more sense to have a heroine who has been terrorised all along killing her tormentor. Yashji has also said that I had second thoughts about playing a negative role. Far from it… in fact, I would not have glamorised the role the way it was done in the film if I had done it. The character had a mental problem and it should have been played accordingly.”

Interestingly, Divya Bharti was the first choice of filmmaker Yash Chopra for the film Darr, but was later replaced by Juhi Chawla. Aamir was also later replaced by Shah Rukh Khan. Darr was released in 1993 and starred Juhi, Shah Rukh and Sunny Deol in lead roles.

The video clip consists of several photos featuring Athiya and Rahul at a photo booth. The two posed with different expressions and were seen goofing around with each other.

In one of them, Rahul placed an adorable kiss on Athiya’s cheeks. She also did the same in another one. While Athiya wore a maroon traditional dress in the photos, Rahul sported a black sequined outfit. The actor also sported a minimal mangalsutra.

The video has been shared by the celebrity wedding planner, Shaadi Squad who arranged Athiya and Rahul’s D-day. Sharing the video, their caption read, “One Tequila, Two Tequila, Three Tequila Floooor!! Best after party with the best peeps dancing the night away on the best beats.”

Later, KL Rahul too shared the video but ditched the caption. Reacting to it, Athiya’s best friend Anushka Ranjan wrote in the comment section, “Loooove.” “Kisi ki Nazar na lge aap dono ko (May God protect you from evil),” added a fan. “You both are always my favourite,” another one mentioned.

KL Rahul and Athiya Shetty got married last week after dating for several years. Their wedding ceremony was an intimate affair, with less than 100 guests, including family members and close friends. For the pre-wedding festivities, the house was decorated with white flowers. It changed to a marigold theme for the haldi ceremony.

The couple made their first public appearance as husband and wife on Monday, days after they had posed for the paparazzi on their wedding day. Suniel told the media the couple’s wedding reception will be held after the Indian Premier League (IPL) season, most likely in Mumbai.

Talking about his son-in-law, Suniel said in a post, “Despite having the adulation of the nation, Rahul remains humble. He’s well mannered, intelligent, & extremely composed. Mana & Rahul are a riot together! Most importantly, like all athletes, he’s seen ups & downs – which is something that will help him long after he’s done with cricket. Athiya is blessed to have found such a loving family, because his parents are really just the nicest people.” Athiya was last seen in Motichoor Chaknachoor (2019), co-starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui, his family gave ‘no food, bathroom’ to actor’s wife: Lawyer | Bollywood

Published

on

The advocate of Aaliya Siddiqui, wife of Nawazuddin Siddiqui, has alleged that the actor and his family members haven’t provided ‘food, bed, bathroom to take bath’ to his client in the last week. In a statement, Rizwan Siddiquee said, “Mr Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his family members did everything possible to remove my client Mrs Aaliya Siddiqui from the house. They filed an untenable criminal complaint of trespass against her. Thereafter, through the police they threatened to arrest her and were calling her each day to the police station, after sunset.” (Also Read | Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s wife Aaliya feels ‘trapped’ inside actor’s house after FIR against her)

“Whilst, I do not want to directly attribute the actions and the failures of the police department to them, yet the fact remains that no police officer ever came to protect my clients rights, even when her modesty was insulted before the police officers. Not only her relationship with Mr Nawazuddin Siddiqui was questioned before the police officer, but even the legitimacy of the minor son was questioned. Yet the police officer did not act on the written complaint given by my client under Section 509 of IPC,” the advocate added.

“Mr Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his family members have in the last seven days ensured that no food, no bed, and no bathroom to take bath is given to my client. They have even posted innumerable male bodyguards all around my client and further installed CCTV cameras in the hall, where my client is currently staying with her minor children,” he continued.

“To add to all of this, they even ensured that I do not obtain any signatures of my client to file appropriate court cases against Mr. Nawazuddin Siddiqui and his family members. Despite being stopped and threatened at multiple levels and no police officer coming to the aid of my client, me and my team managed to obtain signatures of my client for the court cases. Accordingly, multiple cases are being filed in the courts now,” the advocate concluded.

Last week, Aaliya claimed that she was being harassed at her home after Nawazuddin’s mother filed a complaint against her over property dispute. Aaliya is currently staying at Nawazuddin’s Andheri house. Aaliya reportedly returned from Dubai with her kids, Yaani and Shora, due to passport issues.
