Johnny Mastana

Amitabh Bachchan’s shoebite was always a working title to begin with. Shooting of the film is now more than 50% completed; it has got a final title for itself. The title ‘Jonny Mastana’ has been given to the film. The news has been confirmed by a reliable source attached to the film "Yes, the film finally has a title now. It would now be known as Johnny Mastana. The film's first set of teaser posters are already out and they have Johnny Mastana imprinted on them. In any case Shoebite was never a confirmed title so it can't be said that the film has gone though a title change."

But why a title like ‘Johnny Mastana’ has been chosen? While asking this question she replied “Doesn't Johnny Mastana sound more universal in nature? The film is meant for all segments of audience and Johnny Mastana gives just the right indications. We all love this title here and the moment it was first suggested, we just grabbed it with open arms."

Amitabh Bachchan needless to say is doing the leading role. Also Jimmy Sheirgill, Sarika and Dia Mirza are in the key roles. Since the film is touted to be revolving around the journey of a man across the entire nation, it involves numerous location changes.

Deepika and Bachna Ae Haseeno

Following are some of the interesting parts of an interview with Deepika Padukone taken from Bollywoodhungama. Deepika’s next upcoming film is ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’ where she would be seen with her real life boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor. Deepika’s debut film was ‘Om Shanti om’ a blockbuster movie with Bollywood’s superstar Shahrukh Khan. That was SRK’s production ‘Red Chillies’. Now the second one is ‘Yash Raj Films’. So starting from now Deepika is still getting strong platforms. In ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’ Ranbir has also two other heroines Bipasha Basu and Minissha Lamba. Read the following what Deepika things about the film, what about her special feelings in acting together with his boyfriend and some other issues-

How different is it to be working with your off screen boyfriend on screen?

It doesn't really make much of a difference because at the end of the day when you're working and you're a part of the film, you are not really looking at whether he is your boyfriend or not because you're in your work space at that moment.

While Siddharth Anand's previous two films were big hits, Ranbir's Saawariya was a complete no-no. Will Bachna Ae Haseeno be Siddharth's hat-trick of hits and Ranbir's first big hit?

Most definitely. That's what I believe. I think we all have worked really hard but more than us, Ranbir and Siddharth have worked that little extra to add in the best in the film. I hope and pray that they both get what they want from Bachna Ae Haseeno.

As far as the pairing goes, don't you think Bipasha and Minissha are a bit of a mis-match combo for Ranbir?

(Laughs) I am not in charge of casting here. But the way the story is, the script goes, there are other characters required in the film and both Bipasha and Minissha have done a great job in the film, whatever little I have seen of the film. That's all I can say.

Brief us about your experience with Ranbir in different cities around the world you've travelled for the film.

Well, I only got to work with him in Sydney and then for the song 'Khuda Jaane' in Italy. So both were great experiences. In Sydney, we were there for almost 25 days and there we were shooting the scenes. Italy was great fun too. It was 10 days of shooting this lovely romantic song in these beautiful locations. I don't think I would have discovered this beautiful place had we not shot this song there and now since we have discovered it, it's a place I would like to go for a holiday or honeymoon. The most exciting part of shooting this song was that we would shoot everyday and travel in the evening to another location set up in the next place and shoot again the whole day, I don't think anyone has ever travelled so much to shoot one song.

'Khuda Jaane' sung by Kay Kay is slowly steadily topping the charts and we know that the song means a lot to you and Ranbir.

The fact that both Ranbir and me are in love makes the song even more special because shooting the song made it lot more easier. It was a nice experience because it was the first time that we both were shooting for a romantic song together. I'm so glad that Vishal and Shekhar have managed to compile such a beautiful song for us with meaningful lyrics.

Have you shared screen space with Bipasha and Minissha in Bachna Ae Haseeno?

No. We've shot for a promotional song together and you will see all of four of us together but apart from that I'm not really in charge of creative. I agreed to do the film because I liked the character and a bit of the script that was narrated to me. I wanted to be a part of this film and I did what I wanted to do.

The last time I saw your dad, Mr. Prakash Padukone, was in London for your films premiere. How much of him takes over your decision to choose or not to choose the film you do?

A lot. I talk to my parents everyday and every move that I make, every endorsement that I do, every film that I do and my everyday activities are all discussed with them. My parents just don't prefer being in the limelight. They prefer being in the back seat and taking care of my career. My dad handles my finances. Today I wouldn't have been here had my parents not supported me the way they have.
