Tiger Shroff is happy and relieved by the appreciation that has come his way, but he’s a bit ticked off by the backbiting that has been going on. Check out the new star talking frankly.

Tiger Shroff has “mixed feelings” about the response to his debut film “Heropanti”. But the young actor is glad now people are not comparing him to his father Jackie Shroff, who, he believes, had an X-factor about him. He also says comparisons and competition ended up raising the expectations from him “too much”. Movie Review: Tiger Shroff makes a roaring start in ‘Heropanti’ Excerpts: Q. The reviews have been kind to you and unkind to the film. A. Yes, I am with mixed feelings right now. I am a team player, so I’d have liked the film to get appreciated. At the same time, I worked very hard on the film, so I am much relieved. The kind of grind that the whole team went through for one-and-half years ...I’ve never pushed myself so hard in my life.
what is being said and written. I don’t watch too many films. I think that’s a major flaw in my life as an actor. I must start watching more films. As for the criticism, good news doesn’t sell. No one in this industry likes to see other people succeed. It’s a very competitive world out there. The competitive spirit is fine within limits. But it shouldn’t drown the sheer joy of the game being played. It’s natural to want to win. But to me, it’s not natural to want others to fail. Q. You sound very disillusioned by the backbiting?
A. All I know is, no one knows what the audience would like or not like. I’ve to work hard to prove In an interview, myself. And the competition helps me to work even harder. Tiger Shroff The rivalry would help me to grow opened up about his state as an actor. My father was born of mind post to be a star. He had the ‘X’ factor the release of as an actor. I don’t. I’m not that blessed. I’ll just keep working “Heropanti”. hard and hope for the best.
Q. But you’ve always been a diligent and disciplined student?
Q. Are you wary of being compared with your father? A. I am very scared of being compared with him. I want the audience to give me a chance to prove that I’m an entirely different package from my father. Luckily, no one is comparing me to my father after seeing “Heropanti”. We don’t need two Jackie Shroffs.
A. Yes, the way I pushed myself emotionally and physically during “Heropanti” was something I had never done. And not only me. Everyone from the director to the light boy. So much effort has gone into the film. And yet it takes one cruel line in a review to bring it Q. You are more Jackie Chan than all down. Jackie Shroff. Q. Is the criticism regarding the film unjustified? A. I am no one to judge the validity of 18 | JUNE 2014 | WWW.CINESPRINT.COM
A. (laughs) Sure, I don’t mind. I am a big Jackie Chan fan. But it’s Bruce Lee whom I idolize. He is the reason I started learning martial arts.
Q. Your dad had to come up the hard way. A. Yes, my journey was made smoother because I am a star-son. Doors opened for me because of who I am. But the downside is, there is way way too much expectation from me, much more than there would have been if I were from outside the film industry. I thrive on that competition. But it does become a little hard to bear at times. Tiger Shroff is more than ready to take on action roles in Bollywood. The young lad makes a statement through these awesome leaps. Much before Bollywood newcomer Tiger Shroff decided to face the arclights, he had been working on his athletic body, flexibility and motion training.
He has been learning martial arts since the age of four and has been training in gymnastics for the last three years under the watchful eyes of his coach, Ziley Mawai, a national level gymnast from Haryana.
Tiger spends long hours practising gymnastics - back layout, front pike, 360 degreebackward twist, wall flips and leaps - all with the ease and poise of a professional.wew WWW.CINESPRINT.COM | JUNE 2014 | 19

X MAN OF AP POLITICS
Pawan Kalyan hurt by the Andhra Pradesh bifurcation, stormed into politics. With minimal political experience, Pawan’s re-entry was huge sensation. Launching massive attack on the parties for dividing the state in a ruthless manner, Pawan gave a thought of contesting the elections. However political parties started worrying about the split in the votes with Pawan’s arrival and his party Jana Sena. As this split of votes touched Pawan’s ears, he withdrew the thought of contesting the elections. At the Vizag public meeting, Pawan made it clear that he did not enter the politics for the sake of money or any lucrative post. “I stepped into politics to question,” was Pawan’s slogan. In Hyderabad meeting Pawan claimed Chandrababu as good person and in Vizag meeting he openly supported Narendra Modi as PM candidate and also said that he would meet him. In this mean time Modi wave also passed through him. After hectic brain storming, Pawan decided to support
BJP and TDP in the elections. Firstly, Pawan appealed to all his fans to support Modi as PM and TDP in the state. Having said that Pawan did not restrict himself to just words, he campaigned aggressively in Telangana and Seemandhra region. We can’t judge in Telangana whether Pawan’s campaign helped or not because of the Telangana sentiment factor which is much stronger but in Seemandhra, Pawan will be the deciding factor for the BJP and TDP. Pawan Kalyan’s charisma and campaigned helped the both the parties who are desperate to get into government for the past decade. If we look at the votes margin between TDP and YSRCP, Pawan’s influence is clear. Specially in urban areas, the voters gave a clear verdict and Pawan should be credited for that. All the BJP and TDP leaders are now thanking Pawan and his support through which indicates Pawan as the X man of Andhra Pradesh politics.

Nostalgia with the f “Howrah Bridge” one of the most prominent film ever, was made in the year 1958. The Director and Producer was Shakti Samanta and O P Nayyar in Music. Mentioning about the cast was Madhubala, Ashok Kumar, K N Singh, Om Prakash. Exceptional actor Ashok Kumar was 47 when the film was released and India’s valentine Madhubala was just 25 on the contrary there was overpowering onscreen chemistry between them to make the film a hit. To emphasize, Aaiye meherbaan from the film would certainly bring for you the reality into prominence. Already mentioned “Howrah Bridge” directed by Shakti Samanta,was an attempt at noir, which clicked despite the cliches. Samanta captured the Anglo-Indian nuance of the film just perfectly.
106 | JUNE 2014 | WWW.CINESPRINT.COM
film Howrah Bridge Kolkata was seen as the cultural capital of India and it was daring to bring out its lesser known, seamier side. Perhaps, the bhadralok were so mesmerised by Madhubala that they didn’t object to such deviation. The whodunit plot, crooked characters, chase sequences were manna for people fed on socials and romances. The American gangster prototype was very much evident and Kumar was made to look like the desi version of Dashiell Hammett’s Sam Spade. And he had enough charisma to pull off a hard-boiled character. Besides Aaiye meherbaan, it also had another OP Nayyar classic number, Mera naam chin chin chu. In one word it’s a great moment for those who have been able to experience this film during that period, and now once again be able to watch it! Its great to watch and learn from the old classics which actually never gets old but become memorable.

It happens only in India where a cricketer, who will be soon donning the national colours, is not being provided with a proper training facility in his own backyard and has to pay from his own pocket to get one. The disappointment in Kedar Jadhav’s voice was palpable even as he got the news of his maiden call-up in the national team for the tour of Bangladesh next month. “I have represented Deccan Gymkhana Club in Pune for the past 14 years. Yet, they have refused to prepare a pitch so that I can have proper net sessions ahead of Bangladesh tour. Today, I have got India call-up, played for the ‘A’ team and IPL starting from this 122 | JUNE 2014 | WWW.CINESPRINT.COM
club. But I guess they are not happy with my progress,” a dejected Jadhav said. Asked how was he planning to train for the next two weeks before embarking on tour of Bangladesh, Kedar’s reply was even more surprising. “I am paying a monthly fees of Rs 18,000 to 22-Yards cricket academy where there is a proper pitch. I don’t know how may cricketers who get selected for India get this treatment in their own
state,” a livid Jadhav said. The 29-year-old, who was one of the better performers in Delhi Daredevils’ disastrous campaign, did not hide his displeasure of not being given chance to bat higher up the order in the initial games. “Actually, the logo on your chest matters!” he said with sarcasm. “If you have that India logo, you are bound to be taken more seriously. Hopefully, after I play for
India, I will also get a chance to bat higher up the order in IPL. I would also like to get a chance to play more deliveries to showcase my abilities,” said Jadhav, who has scored a mammoth 1223 runs in Ranji Trophy this season. Jadhav was always confident after the last
season that the selectors will reward him for his good show. “I was confident that I will be playing for India one day. My immediate goal is to do well and cement my place in the limited overs side. There are two aspects of representing the national side—playing for India and playing long enough for India. I want to play long enough for India. “I want to use this opportunity to stake a claim for the England ODIs also,” said Jadhav. Exactly when did he feel that he is ready for the next level, Jadhav answered: “The match-winning century against Mumbai at the Wankhede in the Ranji Trophy quarterfinal gave me a lot of
confidence. Beating Mumbai in Mumbai in a quarter-final with no big stars was a great achievement for us.” Jadhav also cited a couple of more knocks against quality oppositions that brought him into national reckoning. “Apart from that, I scored a triple century (327 off 317 balls) against UP in Ranji Trophy, a year before that. A half-century for India A against England at Palam ground were some of the knocks that gave me immense satisfaction. I believe I can play both forms of the game with same confidence. In IPL, if you look at my scores, I have always tried to contribute in limited span of time,” the stocky righthander said.

Vintage Sehwag revives old memories A small component in Kings XI’s new designs, Virender Sehwag turned the clock back and surprised one and all by playing a big hand to take the team into its first IPL final The queues extended from Churchgate station on either side of the railway tracks. Most of them came dressed in yellow with a Dhoni No. 7 emblazoned on the back - it’s a shirt that doesn’t go out of fashion. However, the red shirts were the ones being enthusiastically picked up on the pavements. All of them, absolutely all of them, had the same text on their backs - 32, Maxwell. Inside the ground, Maxwell treated the crowd to some big shots from the practice pitch before the toss. When Kings XI Punjab were asked to bat, they all let out a shriek of excitement for Maxwell. However, by the end of the first innings, Maxwell’s reds - and the rest had been reminded of something far closer to their hearts: Virender Sehwag. If Kings XI’s winning formula was written in the form of a mathematical equation, Sehwag’s presence would appear as a minor variable after the consideration of exponential effects from Glenn Maxwell and Co. Sehwag had given the team its solid starts, scored 326 runs in 15 innings in the shadows of blinding onslaughts from others. Bespectacled, restrained, unassuming, a bit dated, and reduced to a small component in Kings XI’s larger designs. Did anyone care about the Sehwag factor? Probably not. Even R Ashwin, at the end of

Chennai Super Kings’ previous match, was only concerned about his plans for Maxwell. Super Kings haven’t played a real home game (in Chennai) this season, but on Friday, they were on home turf - the
knockouts. So on Friday, if any team was going to feel the pinch of the situation, it was Kings XI. They had already faltered in Kolkata two days ago. The way the innings started - Manan Vohra struggling to get bat on ball - it certainly seemed that the occasion might be getting bigger on the inform team. What better man then to have than Sehwag, whose game has always made mockery of that term pressure. His first two boundaries - one through cover and the other through
point - would have excited most people 10 years ago. Not now. It’s not fashionable anymore. All eyes were on Vohra instead, who did provide the first release in the fourth over with a six over long-on. The next ball, Vohra mistimed a pull, but ran three. Interestingly, it was not Vohra who made the third possible, it was Sehwag. Next ball, Sehwag arched back and guided one through the tiny gap at gully. It was that shot, the cheeky vintage Sehwag manoeuvre, that brought the attention to him.
was Chennai. This was Brabourne all over again. As Sehwag took his 100th run, the crowd rose on its feet and by the time he got out, the score read 211, far beyond just being a platform. The innings had launched Kings XI into the stratosphere.
Sehwag has been in the twilight of his career for quite some time now and there cannot be many such innings left in the tank. Unlike some of his other former India teammates who have kept the A hat-trick of boundaries desire of a comeback in the next over, bowled by burning, Sehwag has his Delhi team-mate Ashish appeared too casual to Nehra, had that Sehwag harbour such ambitions. signature of teasing the He has, throughout a tough opposition captain and domestic season, spoken his field placements.

just gave his followers a chance to relive his glory days and to celebrate Sehwag. “There is one thing I was inspired by, whenever I got out early,” Sehwag said after the match. “I called my son and he said, ‘Papa, you are not a good player, you are not scoring runs,’ so I said, ‘Hold on, there are a couple of games left, so maybe I’ll show you what I’m capable of.’” The innings had painted Wankhede red - it was Sehwag’s first century in India since the 117 against England in Ahmedabad in 2012. Suresh Raina played a numbing knock of 87, but his dismissal drew loud cheers. No one wanted Kings XI to lose. No one wanted Sehwag to lose. A spectator in the adjacent seat summed up the mood: “Maxwell maare to theek hai, but Sehwag maare to andar se khushi hoti hai” [If Maxwell hits it, it’s fun, but if Sehwag hits it, it makes you happy from inside].

Superman 2 Wondergirl Santa applied for the job of night security guard at the factory.

The boss looked him over carefully. “The sort of person we need for this job,” said the boss finally, “is tough fearless, aggressive, suspicious, distrustful, always on the lookout for trouble and constantly ready to flare into violence. Quite frankly, you don’t seem to fit the bill. “Oh. that is all right,” explained Santa. “I HAVE ONLY COME TO APPLY FOR THE JOB ON BEHALF OF MY WIFE.”

Let’s talk about ‘respect’. Respect should always be earned yet many believe it to be something that ought to be assumed. Rarely, apart from basic levels of respect we afford anyone, do we feel obliged to respect someone simply because they believe they’re owed it without having truly earned it. This month, you’re superbly placed to gain respect. The process surrounding earning it requires you to be undaunted by something others believe you’ve every reason to feel daunted by. It’s time to take a brave step forward and show a few people what you’re made of.
We sometimes believe grand solutions require grand gestures. We convince ourselves that tangible and longterm solutions must therefore require considerable effort. Sometimes, we find ourselves pleasantly surprised at how easy something that appeared so complex and daunting is to resolve. For some time, you’ve weighed up how best to tackle a particular issue that has drained you of patience and other resources. This month, you put in place a strategy that promises to bring a halt to what has been undesirable.
We are always painfully aware of what is missing in our worlds. Sometimes, we focus so intently on what we don’t have that we fail to see what we do actually have available to us. This month, the cosmos appears particularly keen to draw your attention to what you do have and can offer. This probably has little to do with anything in a material sense but much to do with your ability to rise to a certain challenge and utilize a particular skill you have. You’re being encouraged to make use of a certain talent. Prepare to be surprised at how talented you really are. Whoever said, ‘if you want something done properly, then do it yourself’ was probably a Leo. This month, it becomes clear how essential it will be for you to retain or possibly regain control of situations where outcomes are absolutely essential to you. You recently embarked upon a process designed to bring about change and control to a stale and uninspiring scenario. Recently, you’ve started to make progress. June promises this will continue if you can remain focused on precisely what you want and need to happen.
There’s no feeling quite like knowing we were right. When we draw a certain conclusion and it feels right, then it tends to, more often than not, be right. This month brings such a feeling for you. There is something you want to make happen and, for this to happen, you’ll have to whittle down a few options in order to give your attention to what truly inspires you. Once done, you’ll be extremely well placed to bring about a result that you’ve long wanted to achieve in a particular area.
Are all fears unfounded? We know if we do what we fear most, then our fears are often short lived. However, we reserve the right to be cautious toward certain situations and June presents you with a situation that doesn’t exactly fill you with glee or inspiration. You have a duty to fulfill. You’re being asked to go above the call of duty where an obligation is concerned and your cautiousness is understandable. All you need to do is show willingness toward what’s being asked of you.
It’s natural to want what we don’t have. Not only is it natural, it’s essential if we’re to achieve anything we desire. Before we can set our sights on something we want, we must first be aware of an absence and a need. Sometimes, to identify what we want, we have to go through a process of Rate: 8.5 elimination. We must first have clear in our minds what we know we don’t want. Coming weeks will do much to help you to clarify what – or whom – matters most in your world and what you need to do to consolidate, strengthen or attain what or whom matters most to you!
Why do people discourage others from doing something? Sometimes, this has to do with those doing the discouraging having a genuine argument that supports valid reasons why someone shouldn’t pursue a particular plan of action. Other times, those doing the discouraging do so because they don’t want to see the other person enjoying success – or because they are afraid to do the same themselves! This month, you’ll likely be very aware of how you’re being discouraged instead of encouraged. Don’t let a few Doubting Thomases’ convince you wrongly. If you had a dollar or other currency and doubled the amount each day, how long would it take until you became a millionaire? Answers to this question usually vary from months to years. The answer is twenty-one days. On day twenty, you’d reach 500,000. Day twenty-one would see you reaching one million. This illustrates the ‘compounding effect’. This month, something is at risk of growing faster than you might anticipate. It is possible, sometimes, to get ‘too much of a good thing’. That’s why you need to guard against something growing beyond your control in June.
How strong are your powers of deduction? Coming weeks will see you determined to draw a particular conclusion. Before you can do that though, you need to embark upon an investigative process. There’s something you need to get to the bottom of. Something has remained unanswered for too long. An issue needs dragging into sunlight and assessed in ways you perhaps haven’t been inclined to assess it until now. This month, a revelation of sorts awaits. Trust that your efforts to attain it will bring clarity and peace of mind you need and deserve!

Magicians and illusionists dislike audience members who insist on drawing attention to how tricks and illusions are done. So too, do those in the audience who get nudged by individuals who believe themselves to be clever by explaining how impressive tricks and illusions are performed. People don’t always want magic removed from what they believe to be magical. Bear this in mind this month. Someone else is very happy knowing what magic exists in a key relationship. Don’t succumb to the urge to highlight reasons why they should be less dreamy and more pragmatic.
The biggest obstacles to our successes are usually those we create ourselves. Rarely, when we decide to take a risk or embark upon an untried or untested plan, do we not encounter at least one person who believes we’ve lost the plot and need a reality check. Sometimes, such people can be persuasive. They manage to convince us that we’re wrong to invest faith in something we believe worthy of our efforts. This month sees you assessing how supportive certain people are of a particular plan you’re pursuing. They can only slow you down. Only you can stop completely.
