These days, Hindi movies are churning out different flavors. It has literally become a trend to make Hindi movies based on real life events. This is definitely a welcome sign. If reports are to be believed then, a movie is being made on notorious Jessica murder case. Tentatively titled, ‘No One Killed Jessica’, movie is being produced by UTV Spotboy. It will be a non-fictional drama. Movie will be directed by Rajkumar Gupta of Amir fame.
Movie will star two powerful actresses of bollywood, Vidya Balan and Rani Mukherjee. While the earlier will play the role of Jessica’s sister, Sabrina Lall whereas later will play role of a journalist. Seems like an interesting movie in making.
Lately, Rani didn’t actually have a very fruitful box office record thanks to duds like ‘Laaga Chunari Mein Daag’, ‘Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic’ and ‘Dil Bole Hadippa’. It is also being rumored that she has opted out of Yash Raj Banner and seeking to make new beginning with outside banners. We all know Rani’s talent and together with Vidya, this pair can prove to be a real hit.
Recently, 56th National Film Awards for 2008 were announced. Hindi movies have performed significantly well in different awards categories. Seems, Madhur Bhandarkar has some happy relations with National Film Awards. This time again, the lead actresses of his hit movie Fashion, Priyanka Chopra and Kangana Raut have fashioned their way to National Awards.
