Emraam Hashmi thrilled with response to ‘Ishq Nahi Karte’ video
Mumbai– Bollywood actor Emraam Hashmi, who is known for starring in chartbuster film and non-film music, shared that he has always been fond of music videos.
Recently, his new video album ‘Ishq Nahi Karte,’ where he co-stars with Sahher Bambba, clocked over 100 million views on Youtube and the actor is extremely elated with the response to the video by the music lovers.
Talking about the same, he said, “I’ve always had a special fondness for music videos, it’s always paid off with immense love from the audience.”
During the 1990s and early 2000s, non-film music or indie pop swayed the audience with their soothing melodies and visually appealing visuals. However, this trend died down as the 2000s decade unfolded giving way to only film music. But, with the rise of the Internet, non-film music is again making in-roads.
Reacting to the album’s success, Emraan said, “It’s incredible to see how well the song has been received. This gives me the courage and confidence to keep exciting my fans and music lovers. It’s wonderful to hit 100 million in such a short period.”
The song, produced by Raj Jaiswal under the music label DRJ Records, has been composed by Jaani and B Praak, who double up as lyricists as well. The storyline is designed by Sunny Khanna.
Rakul Preet on playing a pilot: A sense of dignity seeps in when you step into a uniform
Mumbai– Actress Rakul Preet Singh, who is gearing up for the release of her upcoming film ‘Runway 34’, shared her experience on playing a pilot for the first time. She said when stepping into a uniform there is a certain sense of dignity that automatically steps in.
Speaking of her role in the film, she says: “It is one of the best scripts I heard in a long time and I jumped to bag this role.”
She went through proper training and was always under the guidance of a real pilot to get into the mindset of the character and also showcase proper skills. Learning new things for her film is one of her favourite parts of the job.
Talking about her prep for her character, Rakul Preet shares: “My experience playing a pilot was amazing because I love my job for the reason that you get to play different roles and learn so many different things. How else would I have known how a cockpit looks?
“We had cockpit training for about 2-3 days, where there was a captain on the set who told us how the entire panel works because we shot in a real simulator, also during the entire shoot, the captain was there just to make sure that we use the right button, and use right terminology while flying a plane so it looks authentic.
“And when you step into a uniform there is a certain sense of dignity that automatically steps in the way you walk, the way you talk, the way your language is, the way you react is very different from what a girl next door would. This is all that went into preparing for this role.”
Produced and directed by Ajay Devgn, ‘Runway 34’ releases on April 29.
