Film On Vijay Mallya Alright, But Liquor Baron's Permission Not Taken
The first look of Pahlaj Nihalani's upcoming film Rangeela Raja is out. We know that the movie is based on Vijay Mallya's life, but did you know that the maker did not seek his permission before calling 'Lights, Camera. Action'?
Sensationalism, thy other name in Bollywood is film-making. Vijay Mallya, who has been in the news for the wrong reasons since the past few weeks, now finds that a film is being made on him. While the film's maker Pahlaj Nihalani has claimed that he has been been inspired by Mallya's life to make this film, it is easy to assume that the ex-Censor Chief is smiling from ear to ear--- courtesy Mallya's recent claim that he met the Finance Minister Arun Jaitly before flying out of India. But what needs to be now brought up is something fresh and new.
The latest on Rangeela Raja is that Nihalani had not taken Mallya's permission before embarking on the project. A source has told SpotboyE.com, "Pahlaj did not approach Vijay Mallya for any kind of permission. It is difficult to say whether Mallya would have said yes or no, it's a hypothetical question." Talk to Nihalani, who is reuniting with Govinda after 25 years, and he simply says this much about the film for now: The film is inspired by Mallya's tag- King Of Good Times. Nihalani who was chiefly instrumental in rocketing Divya Bharti and Neelam Kothari's careers is now introducing a Nagpur-born young and attractive Mishika Chourasia in Rangeela Raja. SpotboyE.com had done an EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with Mishika, which was published on August 15. Talking about her role, Mishika had said, "I don't have romantic scenes with him (Govinda) per se, but from the moment I enter the film- the scenes revolve around me. I play a strong headed woman, a no-nonsense type."
Rangeela Raja First Look
The latest on Mallya is that he might not be lodged in the same cell as shown in the eight-minute video submitted by the Indian government in the Westminster Court in London. He will not be given any special privileges or treated as a high-security prisoner and kept in isolation, said Rajwardhan, Special Inspector General (Prisons) in Maharashtra in an exclusive telephonic conversation with The Quint.
Seems, Nihalani has gone all out in Rangeela Raja. One of the film's songs has reportedly has been shot at an exorbitant price of Rs 3 Cr, and features 2 avatars of Govinda. We had brought you that story with EXCLUSIVE PICTURES on August 7. Chi Chi (as Govinda is fondly called) will be shaking a leg with Digangna Suryavanshi (the other heroine in the film) and Mishika Chourasia both along with 500 junior artistes and dancers. The song has been choreographed by Chinni Prakash.
