I Have No Credit To Take In Alia’s Success: Daddy Mahesh Bhatt On Alia Bhatt

Mahesh Bhatt and Alia Bhatt

Mahesh Bhatt is a proud father today.  2014 was the year that saw Alia doing great shakes in Bollywood. While she started off with the critically acclaimed Highway, she rounded the year off with the immensely lovable Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya and the 100 crore-certified 2 States. Suffice to say Alia Bhatt today has carved a safe niche for herself in Bollywood and all this without any Bhatt support. The young actress, who made her debut with Karan Johar’s Student of the Year, today considers the acclaimed filmmaker as her mentor and not her dad Mahesh Bhatt. Mahesh, on his part, has absolutely no problems with his darling daughter choosing Karan as her mentor rather than her famous father.

“I think she is right when she says Karan is her mentor, “said Mahesh and added, “Karan has held her hand and made her walk through a very unforgiving space. I thank God that she doesn’t ask me for anything because she has reached where she is today on her own merit.”

When asked if Alia ever seeks his advice on films, the veteran filmmaker said, “Yes, she comes and talks to me. But I would never even say or support the theory that I have anything or any credit to take for the success that she has achieved but for the fact that she was born in our home to us. She is a unique girl and fiercely independent individual.”

Hopefully, In The Right Direction: Do These B-Town Divas Make For Good Directors? You Decide!

As actor-producer Dia Mirza makes her directorial debut with a romantic comedy this year, BC gives you a lowdown on several B-town actresses who have wielded the megaphone in the past, and others like Kangana Ranaut, Lara Dutta and Deepti Naval, who are gearing up to prove their mettle (or is it metal?) on the director’s chair.

Read on.

DIA MIRZA

DIA-MIRZA

After a failed acting career, Dia Mirza decided to get into film production and floated her company Born Free Entertainment, in partnership with her business and life partner, Sahil Sangha. After producing two films (Love Breakups Zindagi and Bobby Jasoos) Mirza has now found a romantic comedy to make her directorial debut with. Dia is planning to make the film with young actors, but hasn’t zeroed in on anyone as of now. The script is being worked on. The movie is likely to go on the floors by June this year.

DIVYA KHOSLA KUMAR

DIVYA-KHOSLA-KUMAR

Undoubtedly, one of the most successful female directors of Bollywood today, Divya Khosla Kumar made her debut as a director with the musical hit Yaariyan. The success of her debut film encouraged the gorgeous Mrs Kumar to wield the megaphone again as she’s all set to direct her next featuring Pulkit Samrat, Yami Gautam and Urvashi Rautela.

LARA DUTTA

LARA-DUTTA

As the acting opportunities started drying up, Lara Dutta along with her husband Mahesh Bhupathi set up her production house, Bheegi Basanti Productions and co-produced Chalo Dilli featuring herself and Vinay Pathak. Lara will now apparently be directing a film herself – an independent little project which she has been talking about for quite some time now.

POOJA BHATT

POOJA-BHATT

Looks like Pooja Bhatt hasn’t really imbibed the ‘directorial’ qualities from her talented father Mahesh Bhatt. So far, Pooja has directed five movies, debuting with Paap, Holiday, Dhokha, Kajraare and Jism 2. Pooja is now working on her next based on the serial killer Charles Sobhraj and Love Affair.

NANDITA DAS

NANDITA-DAS

That Nandita Das is a talented performer is known to all but not many know that the Bengali art house performer has a good directorial aesthetic. Nandita made her directorial debut in 2008 with Firaaq, a film that won huge critical acclaim at major international festivals. Das hasn’t announced her next project yet. But with a terrific debut like that, we’re waiting for more.

HEMA MALINI

HEMA-MALINI

Though her debut directorial venture Dil Aashna Hai gave us Shah Rukh Khan, Hema Malini’s career as a director was short-lived. Hema found more success with a TV show she directed titled Noopur, a drama starring herself as a Bharatnatyam dancer. Her last, Tell Me O Kkhuda was panned by the critics, with one reviewer calling it, ‘outdated.’

APARNA SEN

APARNA-SEN

After a long, wonderful innings as an actor, Aparna took to direction with great zeal. Her first film, 36, Chowringhee Lane, got rave reviews. With more than half a dozen titles to her name, six of which are National award winners the latest being Goynar Baksho, Aparna Sen is certainly a name to reckon with in both Bollywood and the Bengali film industry. Konkona Sen Sharma must be proud – so are we.

REVATHY

REVATHY

She carved a niche as an actor working in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi cinema. Revathy’s debut project Mitr, My Friend (2002) found its audience, and she won Best Director National award that year followed by Phir Milenge, an honest attempt at creating AIDS-awareness. Her last project was the highly acclaimed Kerala Cafe.

DEEPTI NAVAL

DEEPTI-NAVAL

An actor of repute, Deepti Naval’s debut film as a director Do Paise Ki Dhoop, Chaar Aaane Ki Baarish starring Rajit Kapoor and Manisha Koirala is yet to see light of the day but she hasn’t lost faith in her directorial skills. Deepti is all set to direct her next called Colour of Snow in Ladakh.

KANGANA RANAUT

KANGANA-RANAUT

Kangana Ranaut has made no bones about wanting to write and direct feature films some day. The girl from the hills produced and directed a short film called The Touch, which deals with the relationship between a four-year-old boy and a dog. Later, the Queen star enrolled at the New York Film Academy for a two-month screenwriting course and has written a couple of scripts – including a chick flick.

It Seems Evelyn Sharma Had A Run-In At A Dubai Hotel. Find Out What Exactly Happened

Evelyn-Sharma

After recent rumours of Evelyn Sharma throwing tantrums at Sunny Leone and Ram Kapoor on the sets of Kuch Kuch Locha Hai, the siren is creating news again – albeit for all the wrong reasons.

Recently in Dubai for a live performance at a private function, Evelyn had thrown an after party in her hotel room. It’s learnt that when the staff members of the 5-star hotel refused to allow Evelyn’s friends to hang around in her suite post 11pm, the Yeh Jawaani Hai Dewaani starlet used the ‘Don’t you know who I am?’ card on the staff members. She slammed the doors on them and refused to toe the line. The manager was soon called in to intervene. Evelyn finally had to call off her party on the request and warning of the hotel manager.

A source informs, “It was a small get-together. And like any other party, Evelyn and her friends were enjoying and celebrating. But I don’t think there was any disturbance or nuisance caused by them. We have had after parties at hotels in Mumbai too and I don’t think any hotels have had an issue so far. Evelyn was miffed at the way the staff was talking to her and her guests. However, they wound up early on the request of the hotel manager.”

When we contacted Evelyn, she confirmed saying, “I had few friends over for a small get-together. However, we had to wind up early since the manager humbly requested and I didn’t want his job to be at stake.”
