Sunny Kaushal makes his music video debut with ‘Taaron Ke Sheher’

In 2019, Bhushan Kumar and Vicky Kaushal teamed up for the chartbuster Pachtaoge that stands tall with around 450 million views on YouTube. Just a year later, the T-Series head honcho has signed Sunny Kaushal for his next music video. The single, titled Taaron Ke Sheher will have Sunny, who debuts in the world of music videos, opposite the vivacious and talented Neha Kakkar.

When you speak of music artists, Neha Kakkar has many blockbuster tracks to her credit and is one of the trending artist on YouTube, streaming sites and social media. But with Taaron Ke Sheher, the audience will witness a different side of Neha, on the other hand Sunny will don a never-seen-before rugged look, with long hair. The duo romantically paired opposite each other will definitely surprise the audiences with their chemistry.



It’s the first time lyricist Jaani has given the music and composed this intense romantic track sung by Neha Kakkar and Jubin Nautiyal. Taaron Ke Sheher, an intense romantic number, was shot over three days last week in Delhi, following all COVID safety guidelines. Arvindr Khera shot the beautiful number featuring the new pair, with a limited crew.

A visibly excited Sunny shares, “When Bhushan sir called me for the song I was really excited to be associated with T-Series but after listening to it I got on board immediately, without a second thought. Neha and Jubin have sung the song so well that you can’t help but feel it completely. And I’ve always been a fan of Jaani so I am really kicked about being a part of the song.” He further adds, “This is the first thing I shot for after the lockdown and it was so much fun to be back on set and with such amazing people. Neha is an amazing performer and Arvindr Khera is a fabulous director. I couldn’t have asked for a better music video debut.”

Songstress Neha who reunites with Jaani yet another time is all smiles, “It’s an amazing composition by Jaani, one would hear after a long time. Bhushan sir’s vision on this track is something to look forward to. I am super excited to feature with Sunny and give the audience this intense romantic track in mine and Jubin’s vocals. Arvindr Khera, our director, has done a great job with the video.”

Bhushan Kumar tells us, “Sunny and Neha make for a refreshing pair and their chemistry elevates the romantic ballad to a new level altogether. Sunny is a thorough professional and a perfect fit for the part. Jaani, Neha, and Jubin are some of the best talents in the business today and what they have created together is another gem. I hope the viewers enjoy the music video.”

Richa Chadha reveals on #4yearsofMasaan -“Neeraj had written Devi’s part keeping me in mind”

Masaan was written for her who would have thought that the heartbreaking story of Devi and Deepak would resonate for so long after Masaan had released. The film found a new surge of love on OTT platforms upon its release and has over time achieved a cult status amongst fans. As Richa Chadha, Vicky Kaushal and Neeraj Ghaywan celebrate four years of their memorable collaboration, Chadha fondly remembers the film as an opportunity of a lifetime.

She says, “The film was offered to me in 2012 immediately after Wasseypur;  Neeraj was an assistant on the film and that’s how we got to know each other better. Neeraj had written this part keeping me in mind. It’s the highest form of compliment for an actor when they are offered a tailor made part, when the maker has envisioned you in it even before there’s anything on paper. It will always be my most special film.”

I am humbled: Prateek Parmar on MKDNH success

People can not stop talking about Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota. The Vasan Bala directed film that bagged the Grolsch People’s Choice Midnight Madness Award at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) 2018. It was India’s first ever win and was welcomed with huge appreciation at the Jio MAMI 20th Mumbai Film Festival, where it opened.

Prateek Parmar (who plays the role of Samurai) is the man behind the action sequences in the film. He is a professional martial-arts practitioner trained in wing chun, karate, taekwondo and wushu. Parmar can pull off the most daring stunts without the help of technical gear. While this is not his first time as an action choreographer, this project was definitely different to him. Talking about this, he says, “The whole process of designing action that looks so real and not over-the-top was an experience. Everything that looks so flawless on the screen is actually carefully planned and executed to the perfection. You have to take special steps to make sure the scenes look natural and not animated.”

When asked about how the audience took a special liking to his role, he says, “I am overwhelmed and humbled. I am glad the audience can appreciate just the pure, true action and a storyline like MKDNH. It is why I do what I do.” Prateek is also an independent film-maker. His web-series, Raging Fist, the first action web-series in India, has received international acclaim.

Though the date hasn’t been finalized yet, Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota is expected to release sometime early next year. While the movie is doing huge rounds, the audience especially loved the climax which is packed with high octane kicks. Meanwhile, Prateek will be seen in more unique, action-based films soon.

Prateek Parmar has another feather in the cap with ‘Suryansh’

Kamal Patel and Sachin Desai’s next, Suryansh, is already the most anticipated Gujarati film of the year! The Freddy Daruwala and Heena Achhra starrer is releasing on October 5th. The movie is about a daring police officer on the mission to reduce crime rates.

Suryansh is a one-of-its-kind action film. The action is designed by Prateek Parmar, who is a professional martial arts director. He says, “Suryansh is something that has never happened in Gujarati cinema before. It is purely based on extraordinary action sequences. Being a trained martial arts practitioner, I can perform the stunts without the help of any equipment so I really applaud the rest of the cast who pulled off the scenes flawlessly.”

Suryansh has already gained a huge following of action lovers since the trailer launch. It is being described as a “thrilling roller coaster ride of action, drama, emotions, mystery and an ending that is impossible to predict.”

Prateek adds, “My journey in martial arts has been influenced a lot from popular western action movies and performers. That is reflected in the action choreography for Suryansh.” Prateek has several action sequences to his credit such as the 2018 Bhavesh Joshi Superhero, Vicky Kaushal’s CODE advertisement among others. His very own web series – Raging Fist, is making rounds as the first action web series of India and has received acclaim from around the world. When asked about his ventures into other genres he says, “I live for martial arts. So far I am only planning on projects that are based in action. I would love to explore more unique storylines with martial arts at its core.”

Prateek Parmar will also be seen as a cast in Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota, directed by Vasan Bala and produced by Ronnie Screwvala. The movie became the first Indian film to win the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival. He also did the action sequences for the movie.
