I will cry if BLUE goes wrong – Anthony D’Souza

AUDIENCES WILL NOT CRY WHEN THEY WATCH BLUE BUT IF IT GOES WRONG, I WILL

ANTHONY D’SOUZA tells Jyothi Venkatesh

Are you scared that Blue is being released in competition with All The Best and Main Aurr Mrs Khanna?

I really wish that I could say that I am not at all worried about competition and pray that more films should be released during Diwali, because I welcome competition. But the truth is that I am scared, because there are only good films and bad films and not big films and small films. Bollywood tends to be incestuous, because though we keep on bickering, at the end of the day we end up hugging one another. I wish that All The Best, Main Aurr Mrs Khanna and my own film Blue had been released one after the other separately, without cutting into each other’s throats.

Ghost producer: Sanjay Dutt gets behind the scene in All The Best

While Sanjay Dutt’s unhappiness with his other recent films is well known he has come out of All The Best grinning ear to ear, and not just because it’s comedy.

Director Rohit Shetty gets emotional talking about Dutt. “You can’t help being protective and affectionate about Sanjay. Once he accepts a film he adopts the whole unit. Sanjay was more like the producer of All The Best than Ajay Devgan. In the evenings Ajay, Fardeen and the rest of the gang would be chilling out in Goa while Sanjay would sit with me poring over the next day’s schedule. He was bothered about every thing, from the food for the unit to my travel plans. Whenever I had to leave the Goa location for Mumbai he would be anxious about my return flight.”

Movie Review : BLUE (2009)

BLUE: A BIG dissappointment

Rating: 1.5 out of 5*

Starring: Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta, Zayed Khan, Rahul Dev and Katrina Kaif (Sp. App)

Director: Anthony D’Souza

Sagar (Dutt) and Aarav (Akshay) are good friends settled in the Bahamas. While Sam is a happy go lucky rich businessman, Sagar is down to earth and not as ambitious as him. Aarav on many occasions tries to instigate Sagar on coming out with the secret of ‘The Lady In Blue’ a ship carrying a huge gold treasure that was sunk in 1949 in the Bahamas seas. Aarav believes Sagar knows the route to the deep sunken ship and they both can benefit from the huge treasure that lies inside it. Sagar however doesn’t like to discuss about the ship nor has any interest for the treasure hunt. Just then Sagar’s younger brother Sam (Zayed) arrives from Bangkok after five years. Mafia boss Gulshan (Rahul) is hot on his trail for an assignment worth 50 million dollars gone wrong. With Gulshan too arriving in Bahamas and kidnapping his girlfriend Mona (Lara), Sagar has only 24 hours left for paying back the huge money which Sam has messed with. He is now left with no option but face his old demons and plunge into the deep sea with Aarav and Sam for the treasure hunt.

Akshay thrilled to be honoured with Katana

AKSHAY KUMAR tells Jyothi Venkatesh

How do you feel now that you have bagged a Katana?

To receive a Katana is considered an honour amongst the Japanese and Kukukai International told me that they decided to hand it over to me since they felt that it would be fitting since I have always propagated martial arts in India. I am thrilled and glad that I have been honoured with a Katana, a tradition practiced by Samurais and Martial artists and a 6th degree Black Belt in Kuyukai Gojuryu Karate as well by Kuyukai International from none other than Shihan Hirano Osamu, who is the world wide head of Ku Yu Kai. Few in the world hold this kind of an honour.

BLUE gets a U/A certificate

The underwater action thriller ‘BLUE’ coming from the Shri Asthavinayak Cine Vision banner that hits screens this Diwali has been given a U /A certificate as per the censor board.

This oceanic spectacle features Bollywood bigwigs like Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar, Lara Dutta, Zayed Khan, Rahul Dev and a special appearance by Katrina Kaif.
