Jaccky Bhagnani is not only a money bag producer Vashu Bhagnani’s son but also a fabulous actor in films like Kal Kisne Dekha which was not a good debut but the super-success of his next film Faltu made him a bankable star. Now his next film ‘Ajab Gazab Love’ is eagerly awaited at the box office. ADC’s Sandeep Hattangadi caught up with the young star in his plush Juhu office. This is how the candid talk went.
The success of ‘Faltu’ must have made you happy.
Yes, I am happy but I would have been happier if I had starred in an outside banner because the industrywallahs give all the credit to my successful father Vashu Bhagnani.
So what is your gut feeling about ‘Azab Gazab Love’?
I am all excited about the film because the romantic comedy has really turned out well under the direction of senior director like Sanjay Gadhvi. The music by Sajid Wajid is also a highlight of the film with the song ‘Boom Boom’ also a chartbuster.
What is the premise of the film?
It’s about a rich industrialist’s son Rajveer played by me who falls in love with Madhuri, played by Nidhi Subaiah, a girl who is a social worker and hates all things rich and refuses to respond to Rajveer’s advances, so Rajveer and his father played by Darshan Zariwala act as poor people just to win her hand for Rajveer.
Is Rajveer’s character close to your own self?
I am a rich boy in real life who likes to go to the races and go dancing which is my passion.
How was Nidhi Subbaiah as an actor?
She is not only a good actor having done seven Kannada films but also a very focused and disciplined actor, always on time and giving her best in front of the camera. Sometimes she reported on the sets even before the unit could reach the location.
The director Sanjay Gadhvi is known for his stylish action films like ‘Dhoom 1’ and ‘Dhoom 2’?
Yes. But in this film he has brought out the comedy and romantic elements very well.
There is the sequel of ‘Faltu’ coming up and a film with Priyadarshan called ‘Rangrez’ with cinematography by Santosh Sivan.
Well the rich boy looks all set to make the viewers laugh in delight!
