Japinder Kaur miffed with censor board for muting 63 words in DILLIWAALI ZAALIM GIRLFRIEND

DILLIWAALI ZAALIM GIRLFRIEND has been given a U/A certificate by the censor board after 63 mutes. The mutes include words like ‘saala’ and ‘saali’. This has not gone well with the director of the film, Japinder Kaur.


Says the miffed director, “If there is no thematic issue, I don’t understand the problem in just picking up singular words that are local lingo.”

She further adds, “To bring about any change in rules, we should systematically lay down guidelines with time limits. The censor should inform that films going into going into production now should follow new rules; because they have the space to, not the ones that are already completed and have been in working progress in the last 1-2 years.”

Produced by Manjeet Kaur & Tarnpreet Singh, DILLIWAALI ZAALIM GIRLFRIEND stars Divyendu Sharma, Jackie Shroff, Ira Dubey, Prachi Mishra, Pradhuman Singh & others and ..

m_Jackie Shroff

The bindass bhidu actor and good human being to the core, Jackie Shroff is living up his dream these days! Jackie time and again revealed that he always wanted to play a baddie or wicked character on-screen and now he is seen doing the same. He played different grey characters in different movies like AURANGZEB, HAPPY NEW YEAR amongst others.

And now Jackie Shroff will be seen playing a ‘Punjabi Crooked Businessman’ with the shades of comedy for the first time ever on silver screen. With Japinder Kaur’s DILLIWAALI ZAALIM GIRLFRIEND, Jackie is set to surprise his fans with a fun-lighthearted baddie character.

“I always loved playing villainous roles and I have also done in the past in the films like PARINDA, MISSION KASHMIR SWAMI DADA, 100 DAYS, etc…But the kind of grey characters I am playing right now is fun. I had a whale of a time playing a baddie with comic shades for the first time in DILLIWAALI ZALIM GIRLFRIEND. It was hilarious and amazing experience. I love such colourful, fun-loving villains,” said the actor.

When asked about the character of Minocha, which Jackie is said to essay, Japinder said, “When I had decided to cast him in the role of a Punjabi Businessman in DILLIWAALI ZAALIM GIRLFRIEND, a lot of people told me it wasn’t a wise decision. However now that the film is complete the very same people are saying it is one of the best casting they have seen off late.”

Produced by Manjeet Kaur & Tarnpreet Singh, DILLIWAALI ZAALIM GIRLFRIEND also stars Divyendu Sharma, Ira Dubey, Prachi Mishra, Pradhuman Singh & others.

Director of the first biopic on Guru Nanak talks why it was difficult to make a film on the Guru

Easily one of the most iconic personalities to have been born in India, Guru Nanak is one person whose story deserves to be told. Strangely however it took over a 100 years cinema to finally have a film on a personality that defines so much about India. Directed by Sartaj Singh Pannu, Nanak Shah Fakir features powerful actors such as Tom Alter, Adil Hussain and Arif Zakaria has been shot across the country in an effort to stay true to the settings of Nanak’s era. The trailer has just been launched and the film is set to release in April this year. Here’s an excerpt with the director.

Nanak Shah Fakir is the first biopic on Guru Nanak. What do you think took so long for film to be made on him?

Because it can steer instant controversy. Firstly projection of Guru Nanak in flesh and blood is not acceptable, therefore  to make hundred percent  live action it not possible. Second, animation is very expense, third certain facts in history are  blurred between factual and rituals, fourth it requires  huge budget to mount  a film on Guru Nanak as he traveled far and wide in 15th century.

When you started working  on this film what were your biggest hurdles?

To make a film without showing Guru Nanak, so we had multiple meeting with Mr. Pankaj Kandpur, creative   director  Tata Elxsi.  Mark D’Souza  our in-house VFX supervisor of the film  worked  on CG test  shots  with Mr. Pankaj Kandpur for many month, till we reached technical  satisfactory level , after  months of back and forth we started shooting.  My Director Of Photography Sandip Patil used multiple cameras to insure fluidity of scenes which would later involve  tricky  CGI  shots in the Post

How did you manage to keep the film true to the period. We understand you have shot across many states in the country.

Not many reference were available on pre- mogul era period films, intense research was done Payal Saluja, an NID graduate, a very experienced costume designer along with  Production Designers  worked really hard and stuck to brief, remained true to Socio- Geo-political and Economic culture of 14 & 15 century.  We were  ruled by Muslims of  Turk Persian origin, most of the country was Hindu, Persian was official government language but  we spoke Hindi.

As the story spanned around 70 years, from the birth  of guru nanak, till he departs, the Make-up department had to be exceptional. I had to convince my  producer to step up first prosthetic Lab in India  to  reduce cost on talent import and Prosthetic  material .Indigenous Prosthetic artist Preetisheel Singh and clover Wotton with team of 10 people worked over an year to give exact natural ageing on many character, designed severed limbs used in  first battle of Panipat war, made 50 years old men look 200 year humans living in Himalayas etc

As guru nanak travelling extensively with his message of IK ONKAR.”One god’   he went north  south, east ,west. We shot in snow, desert, ocean, jungle, ladkh, Punjab, Mumbai, Gujarat, Rajasthan, oddisa, green room studios etc.

It was challenge for my unit  and my actors who  stood by the film  and shot at most adverse location with heavy costumes and face altering prosthetic which  sometimes took 4-6 six hours to complete especially   on Adil Husain and Tom alter, Arif and Manav Kaul

How long did you take to complete the shoot of the film?

We started in April 2012 and completed 2013 October  The most aspiring part was the music rendered by Uttam Singh and sung by Nirmal Singh. The music gave me insight into spiritual feel of  the film and dialogues by Sagar Sarhadi were of poetic flavor



Did it not make sense to have a well known star to be a part of such a film? How did you choose your cast?

The film was very cumbersome, additional baggage of stars and paraphernalia would take the would be detrimental to film. I thought I required long commitment from technicians and actors , which Arif Zakaria  gave me. Mardana, reenacted by Arif was a rebaab player who  lived in village Talwandi of Guru Nanak, he was Guru Nanak’s  friend and companion during his childhood and all his travels. The story is narrated through his life and character.

Nanak is your second film and comes almost 4 years after Soch Lo. What’s your next?

Yeah, this has taken almost three years,  I have many scripts which I have writing over the years. I want to make this intercontinental classic revenge love story in ’50s and ’60s based in Punjab and wild outback’s of Australia, I’m a trying  to talk to actors. If this takes time, I’ll make a  quickie contemporary  film.

Some people always remember the people who have helped them in the past. Zareen Khan is one among them. At PTC Awards in 2014, Vindu Dara Singh was the first person she thanked after winning the best debut award for her movie Jatt James Bond. She was offered quite a lot of movies, but she rejected them. It was Vindu who convinced her to do the movie. She recalled his dialogue to her in Housefull 2 ‘Sosa pe kar lo bharosa’ and it worked like a magic.

Now she is working on her second movie called ‘Ishq My Religion’, and has other big offers, but has not forgotten to thank the person who made it happen.
