For the first movie of his own production, Mehmood wanted #KishoreKumar to play the role of one of the leads, Vidyapati. However, Kishore was not interested in acting and only wanted to sing.
#Mehmood followed him for one month and was convinced after spending a whole night in front of Kishore's house asking him to do the role.

Later while filming the #MeriBindoo song, the choreographer was not present. So Kishore Kumar stepped in and briefed the cast on the lyrics.

Review: #Karthikey2
Rating: 🌟🌟🌟 + 🌟

Untouched genre since long in #IndianCinema & #ShriKrishna
Bhagwan's reference in the backdrop is Icing on the cake.

One extra star for #KaalBhairwa's BGM & that one monologue by @AnupamPKher sir.. GOOSEBUMPS 👌🏽
I liked one more scene..
The Conversation between experienced Archeologist & a young Girl happening in the plane.. Brilliant writing!
Story is quite predictable but NOT boring as well.
Kudos to producer
@AbhishekOfficl ji.. You're setting higher goals for other producers 👏🏽
Hindi dubbing of the protagonist could have been much much better.

Do watch, this is a clean family entertainer..


Memorable Cameos so far in 2022

Pioneer of #Indiancinema, Dhundiraj Govind Phalke, famously known as #DadasahebPhalke, died #onthisday in 1944. He directed the first Indian feature film, #RajaHarishchandra in 1913.
1/4 Image
Phalke directed 95 feature films and 26 short films in his 19-year career. Only one of his films, ‘Gangavataran’ (1937), was made with sound technology. The others were silent films.
Phalke’s achievements were in part due to his wife, Saraswatibai. She was his film editor and production manager. She sold her jewellery so that he could buy a camera and travel to London to learn filmmaking. Read more:
