The Indian Film Festival of Melbourne has kickstarted their 10th year celebrations with a grand opening press conference that took place this morning in Melbourne.
Taking charge of the event, Mitu Bhowmick Lange, director of the festival introduced the programs of the festival. Given that the list includes names like SRK, Karan Johar and Tabu, none of who require introduction, the excitement in the air was palpable.
Khan, the guest of honour at the festival was received with great love by the audience. In his trademark charm, he quipped, “Many years ago in 2006-07, I came here when I was a rising superstar giving hit films after hit films. And now I am back here again, still a rising superstar not making as many hit films(chuckles), as much as I would want to do so. I thank everyone for the opportunity to speak here. It’s heartening that because of the Indian diaspora – the second generation of Indians here (people like Mitu) Indian cinema is getting noticed. It’s extremely gratifying and makes every Indian proud. I speak for everyone on the Dias today, that we are happy to be here.”
Witty and sharp as always Khan’s energy was matched by long time collaborator and dear friend KJo. Karan said, “it’s not the films but the people behind the festival who make it what it is. When I see this fantastic panel and we say the theme is courage, I say the panel is reflective of the glorious courage of our films and changing face of Indian cinema. It represents three feature films that have changed the way we look at Indian cinema and how it has travelled across the globe and will continue to do so. There is Super Deluxe, Andhadhun and Gully Boy. All of these have appealed not only to the diaspora but to international audiences across the globe, making Indian cinema so proud. And what to say about Shah Rukh Khan, he fully represents superstardom. I firmly believe, in the era we belonged to, the term is understood because of him. It’s not just about his large heart but his tremendous presence and aura. The fact that he is an outstanding actor is hugest icing on the cake.”
Also in attendance were Zoya Akhtar, Rima Das, Arjun Kapoor, Tabu and filmmaker Sriram Raghavan who are screening last year’s biggest hit Andhadhun.
Bollywood’s emerging music sensation Vardan Singh has again captivated his fans with his soulful romantic voice in the upcoming movie Mushkil’s songs. Although the film ‘Mushkil’, directed by Rajiv S. Ruia, is a horror mystery film, Vardan’s magical voice has already set the romantic mood among the audience.
Vardan has sung ‘Yun Hi Nahi’ features rising actor Kunal Roy Kapoor and Nazia Hussain, another blissful melody "Ek Siwa Tere" casts Rajniesh Duggal and Pooja Bisht. both the songs, composed by Vardan, have been massive hits and the current buzz much before to the movie’s release. Out of these two, ‘Yun Hi Nahi’ has been sung by Vardan himself and Meenal Jain, whereas in ‘Ek Siwa Tere’, singer Mohammad Irfan has justified with Vardan’s composition. The soothing romantic tunes of both the songs have undoubtedly matched the beautiful location and gorgeous looks of the actors.
In actor Rajniesh Duggal’s own words, “What a composition and tune! I simply love it. I don’t think I could find any better song than this. It was an amazing experience for me to shoot for the song Ek Siwa Tere”. Mushkil’s another lead cast Kunal Roy Kapoor has also shared his experience, saying *“I am blessed to get such a lovely song to act on. The moment I heard the song, I knew that I have a great responsibility to justify with this lovely song. I loved the music and singing style of Vardan. He is simply a gem. I tried my best to do justice with his song”.*
Although Vardan Singh lent his voice in Ram Gopal Varma directed 2010’s movie Rakhta Charitra, the singer received his due fame after the track ‘Kabhi Yun Bhi’ from 2016’s movie Ishq Junoon. The unique style of singing and composition of Vardan has already lifted the bar of expectation for his fans, and the pace at which the two songs of ‘Mushkil’ has gone viral, its needless to say that, Vardan hasn’t disappointed his fans at all.
