When I heard that poor man’s favourite actress Mallika Sherawat will be starring in the sequel to Phoonk, the first thing which came to my mind was… Phoonk 2 is actually being made??
Isn’t Ramu got enough bashing for the original movie?
I guess not, he’s not that stupid to make a sequel to a movie which looked like a comedy of ‘white magic’ starring a crow who charged Rs.500 per shift.
Anyways, returning to the news… Mallika is actually working on the sequel after she forgot all her differences with director when two weeks ago, Ramu compared her with the same superstar crow in his movie.
Writing on his blog, Varma says, ‘It is common knowledge that many a times star are signed by directors not because they fit the characters but because the distributors and trade pundits demand them. The tremendous opening of Phoonk all over the country proves that instead of crores charging Mallika, Paresh (Rawal) etc, you can pull audience with a 500 rupees-per-shift charging crow.’
It’s kinda true, but believe me… if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t have seen ‘Maan Gaye Mughl-E-Azam‘.
So, who was the peace-broker??
When contacted, Ramu confirmed the news and said, “Yes, Mallika and I had a problem after Contract. She had sent me a legal notice. However, we have buried our differences now. We exchanged some text messages and everything is fine between us.”
Now you see… what SMSes can do for you!
