Urmila breaks down!

Monika Baldwa | June 24, 2003 12:46 IST

Urmila Matondkar is concentrating fully on her performance in Pinjar (Sanjay Suri, Priyanshu Chatterjee, Manoj Bajpai and Sandali Sinha) these days. 

Urmila and Manoj Bajpai in PinjarWhile dubbing for an intense scene, Urmila was so overwhelmed that she could not stop crying until much after the scene was over. In fact, she completed the dubbing for the entire film in two days.

Based on a famous novel by Amrita Pritam, Pinjar depicts riots, mayhem, human suffering and hope.

Urmila plays Puro. How she overcomes the wrath of hostile communities and rewrites her destiny in the milieu of the changing relationship between two nations, communities and individuals forms the story of the film.

Ghostly surprises

Barkha Madan, who played the ghost in Ram Gopal Varma's Bhoot, is supposedly quite the prankster.

Apparently, when shooting for the film, she did not breathe a word about it to her family and friends.

A still from BhootAt the screening, she says, "They did not recognise me in the introduction shot. After a couple of shots, they thought she [the ghost] looked a lot like me. Finally, it hit them that it was me."

She has now signed a Dutch film which she begins work by the end of the year. 

Priyanka Chopra will win her man

Priyanka ChopraAfter falling in love, failing to woo her man and losing him to another woman in both her films, The Hero and Andaaz, actress Priyanka Chopra will now have two men chase her.

In Sajid Nadiadwala's next Mujhse Shaadi Karoge, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar will woo the actress and fight over her.

Tearful act

When she was denied a retake on the sets of director Anant Balani's Joggers Park, Perizaad Zorabian burst into tears.

Perizaad ZorbianBalani laughs off the whole incident, "We had done a few retakes of a scene and I was happy with the last take. But she kept insisting I do another one. Finally, I lost my temper and she began to cry. But we are good friends, so it's okay."

Balani directs the actress in two films: Joggers Park (costarring Victor Banerjee) and Mumbai Matinee (costarring Rahul Bose). 

While Joggers Park has been produced by Subhash Ghai's Mukta Arts, Mumbai Matinee will be released by Pritish Nandy Communications.
