Bollywood Youngies In ‘Buddah Avatar’!

There was a time in the 70’s and 80’s when actors portrayed the role of older man in many movies. Remember Amiatbh Bachchan playing dual role of father and son in ADALAT, AAKHRI RASTA, DESH PREME, or Jetendra in FARZ AUR KANOON, PYASSA SAWAN etc. But by the 90’s the trend slowly declined and today actors are left to TV commercial to quench the urge for creativity and daringly portray elderly character or so called ‘Buddah avatar'.


Recently young and dynamic actor Arjun Kapoor , who is basking stardom thanks to his hit movies ISHAQZAADE, GUNDAY and 2 STATES, has played a senior citizen character for a TV commercial and guess what he is completely unrecognizable? The actor, who was shooting in Romania for the same, has put in all his best efforts to look genuinely old and succeeded indeed! 

Besides Arjun Kumar, Khiladi Akshay Kumar is seen playing an old man in the HONDA bike commercial on TV. Earlier too he had adorned the old man look for a loan finance company. 

Likewise Ranbir Kapoor, heartthrob of the girls, was seen playing a senior citizen in TV commercial. His makeup was excellent with a grey hairline, wrinkled face and a typical old man's specs. 

Readers would be aware that Anupam Kher was just 28 years when he played the role of a retired school teacher in Mahesh Bhatt’s SARAANSH .

Earlier, Aamir Khan surprised his fans when he wore a turban and sported white beard in the Tata Sky advertisement. To keep pace with Aamir, Shah Rukh too played a 75-year-old grandfather, romancing Tanvi Azmi as his wife in another advertisement.

Aditya Roy Kapur Blames Adi Chopra For Failure Of DAAWAT-E-ISHQ

Aditya Roy Kapur is a disappointed actor because his much anticipated film produced under the esteemed Yash Raj banner, DAAWAT-E-ISHQ co-starring the talented and popular actress Parineeti Chopra, has proved a dud at the box office, making the actor let down. 

Readers would be rather stunned to read that frustrated at the failure of the movie the actor has allegedly blamed its film producer Aditya Chopra for the film’s failure. According to a reliable source Aditya Roy Kapur had apprehension doing the role of the Muslim Lucknowi chef's role in the movie. He felt that he won’t be able to do justice to the character. Hence when Aditya Chopra had offered him the role, Aditya Roy Kapur had expressed his reluctance but on Adi Chopra’s insistence, the actor had nodded. 


Now that film has been discarded by the audience and proved a disaster at box office it’s believed that Aditya Roy Kapur is accusing Aditya Chopra as the chief culprit behind the movie’s failure. 

Disheartened Aditya Roy Kapur has reportedly said, “Adi Chopra is one producer who does not like to listen ‘No’. Hence nobody dares to challenge Adi but in my case I had expressed my reservations but Adi convinced me to do the role and today I am repenting.” 

Aditya Roy Kapur has been struggling to make his presence felt in Bollywood since 2009 when he made his debut playing a minor role in LONDON DREAMS and followed it with minor roles in ACTION REPLAYY (2010) and GUZAARISH (2010). However all the three big budget movie proved flops and Aditya Roy Kapur could make his mark as an actor in Bollywood. 

However with AASHIQUI 2 (2013) and YEH JAWAANI HAI DEEWANI (2013) alongside Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, eventually gave him success but with DAAWAT-E-ISHQ’s failure the actor is back in the dock!
