Shweta Tripathi Sharma channels her inner Kill Bill energy in these pics from Mirzapur 2

If a film epitomized women empowerment, it is the brilliant Uma Thurman starrer Kill Bill. 2003 Quentin Tarantino classic has achieved an immortal status in the genre of revenge dramas. Thus, it is no surprise that while shooting for her own version of a revenge saga, Shweta Tripathi Sharma channelized her inner Uma Thurman for her character Golu in the second season of Mirzapur. Ready to avenge the deaths of her sister Sweety and Bablu (played by Shriya Pilgaonkar and Vikrant Massey respectively), Golu has unleashed an unseen before deadly streak from within herself. Smeared in blood, the girl is ready to battle it out with the gang lords of Mirzapur to take revenge.

Shweta says that the rage of Golu was the hardest part for her to crack. “There are many cinematic references. Kill Bill surely tops the list. It was important to understand the Golu is the kind of woman who takes the lead. She cannot be oppressed or be struggling in the face of adversity. Golu’s survival energy was what I internalized for my part. There’s a steely resolve in Golu, coupled with uncontrollable rage. The second season for me was such a unique experience. Never could I have imagined playing something like this and here I am, in the release week. There are butterflies for the response and the hope that I have surprised my fans like never before.”

Netflix’s House Arrest crew got robbed

The hassle that goes behind making a film is unreal, and people involved in the making of a film are always sporty to overcome such hassles. When it comes to making a film there are people beyond actors and directors who are actively a part of this journey, there are people who make the smallest things happen which may later be a part of a bigger picture. Costume assistants, spot boys, and even the carpenters play a big role when it comes to transporting trunks of clothes from one location to the other or even fixing props on sets.

During the shooting of Netflix’s upcoming film ‘House Arrest’ starring Ali Fazal, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Jim Sarbh and Barkha Singh, the production manager along with a few helpers had visited the market to purchase trunks for the costumes. During the errand of buying and carrying the trunks, a biker sped his way through and snatched one of the spot boy’s cell phones. A similar incident took place with the costume assistant, one day after the shooting the assistant was traveling back home in an auto where she came across two thieves on either side of the auto who stole her purse and vanished in no time.

The star cast was really furious and they immediately filed a complaint to the nearest police station.

House Arrest releases exclusively on Netflix on 15th November 2019, in 190 countries at the same time.

Vikrant Massey impresses all in the crime-thriller ‘Mirzapur’!

Enchanting the audiences with his simple yet realistic performances, Vikrant Massey earned quite applause for his role in Amazon Prime’s amusing gorefest – Mirzapur!

In this web’s response to Gangs Of Wasseypur, Vikrant plays a typically clueless good boy who gets pushed into the world of crime. The talented actor is skilled enough to gain all the attention from his viewers in spite of his character being helplessly embroiled into ambition, greed, horrid games and morbid atrocities without any sign of initial rebel against power.

This young, promising actor didn’t just woo the audience with his effortlessly nuanced performance but a lot of revered critics reviewed only to shower him with appreciation for his part in this crime thriller.

For instance, The Indian Express opined, “Vikrant Massey plays the innocent docile boy and we are hoping that his character will find a direction in the upcoming episodes.” In the meanwhile, Times Now News rated him saying, “Vikrant Massey is of the first rate.”

Firstpost reviewed him as a peaceful distraction from animosity, increasing death counts and gloomy circumstances saying, “Massey provides a relief from the constant gore, and lends the story a fleeting balance.”

Popular site Scroll.in affirms, “Vikrant Massey is terrific in his role, managing to earn some sympathy even though his character is never up to any good.” In.com finally avers on his diction quoting, “Vikrant Massey delivers his lines wonderfully.”

Vikrant Massey has an impressive mix of content-driven plus mainstream projects to his name like Mirzapur, Lipstick Under My Burkha, A Death in the Gunj, Dil Dhadkne Do and Lootera for which his power packed and impactful performances were highly appreciated.
