Today few people know Shweta Kumar, the daughter of film maker Indra Kumar. But tomorrow Shweta could be a household name! Shweta is the debutant who stars opposite Himesh Reshammiya in Karzzz, released today.
Satish Kaushik’s Karzzz is the remake of cult movie Karz made by Subhash Ghai decades back, with Rishi Kapoor in the lead. The fate of the remake film is yet unknown, but it is bound to make waves at the box office. This has been a much awaited movie. One reason is that people get to sway to Himesh’s tunes after a big gap of one whole year. No wonder all the songs are topping the charts!
Now, coming back to “Shweta Kumar”, this is one bold babe, yaar! Did you know that the first scene she shot for the movie was in a bikini!!! This is sheer professionalism, or is it merely hunger for success? Who are we to judge? There is absolutely nothing wrong with a woman wearing a bikini. But isn’t Bollywood going a little crazy about this bikini thing?
Decades back, there was the custom of having a cabaret number and one action sequence (towards the end) in each film. Recently, the “cabaret” has been replaced by the “item number”. And now, it seems that a “bikini scene” has also been added to the list of “must haves” for a successful film. Now whether the story requires a bikini or not is a different story altogether!
