20 Years of 'Kuch Kuch Hota Hai': Karan Says Rahul Was a Bit of Fraud October 17, 2018 11:32

Twenty years after making people fall in endearment with his notion of romance in his debut Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Indian film director Karan Johar says the film's much-fictitious hero, Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) was "a bit of a fraud". The 1998 film was an enormous commercial smash hit and the three central characters - Rahul, Anjali (Kajol) and Tina (Rani Mukherji) are well liked even today. The dialogues from "Pyar dosti hai" to "Kuch kuch hota hai Rahul, tum nahi samjhoge" are even now engraved in fans' minds. When asked how would Rahul and Anjali be today two decades later, Karan said, "Rahul was a bit of a fraud anyway. He used to say 'we love once, marry once' but did it twice. In my head, I hope the marriage works, but it must have been a tough marriage. "I hope the little Anjali [Sana Saeed] isn't messed up, because at eight she was loaded with so much information." The flick redefined new age friendship and romance, and Karan said the movie was a great learning experience for him. He credits the film for his prosperous innings in Bollywood. "I remember every single moment from the film. I remember all the struggles, the joy, the fun while making," he said in an interview here. The first scene that the 46-year-old filmmaker shot for the movie never made it to the final cut. Recalling about it, Karan said, "It was a doctor's set with Shah Rukh in it and I had directed it poorly but he (Shah Rukh) was kind. When I shot that dentist scene, I edited immediately and showed it to him. I realized it was a bad scene and told him about it.  "And he said, 'As long as you know it! I am happy that you do.' I removed that scene." It was Shah Rukh who recommended Karan to kick off the shoot of the film with a song, as he can settle down by then. "Farah did the songs and Shah Rukh said, I should supervise it. Then I got confidence. Now I always tell first-time directors to start with a song because the atmosphere is fun and light so you can settle with your characters and then start your film," he said. In a recent interview with PTI, Kajol had said with Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, she learned the importance of on-screen chemistry. "What I realized is that when you have fun off screen it translates on screen. Your off-screen equation is conveyed on screen. There is some relatability, touchability, that comes on screen... You don't know what is it that attracts people," she added. Calling it as one of her favorites, Kajol said, it is special as it was made with all her friends. "I think even today when I think of that film the first person that comes to my mind is Yash (Johar) uncle, he took such good care of us and we actually felt privileged to be working under him. "He was one of the nicest people that I have ever met in my life. It was my honor to know him," she added. -Sowmya

Indian-Origin Man Jailed in UK Over Handling Stolen Vehicles October 17, 2018 05:24

An Indian-origin man has been sentenced to eight years in jail by the United Kingdom court for the handling of 19 stolen high-value vehicles worth over 7,00,000 pounds. Chirag Patel, 39, was found guilty of conspiracy to handle stolen goods and ownership of the criminal property at the extremity of a five-week trial at Croydon Crown Court last Friday. "Patel played the leading role in a sophisticated operation to handle high-value, stolen vehicles, motivated only by sheer greed," said Acting Detective Sergeant Billy Clough, who led the investigation for the Metropolitan Police. "He even attempted to convince the jury that he was a legitimate businessman, who had simply been unlucky in obtaining such a vast quantity of stolen items, but the jury saw through this and convicted him of being the key player in a significant criminal enterprise," he said. Patel was imprisoned for conspiracy to handle stolen goods in relation to the cars and keys, for which he received eight years' in jail. He was sentenced to three years' imprisonment for owning criminal property and in relation to over 440,000 pounds of unexplained cash deposits which had been identified from two personal bank accounts in his name. Both the judgments will run simultaneously. "I hope this sentence sends a message that those involved in this type of organized criminality will be pursued robustly," the Met Police said. The tribunal was told that in February 2015, Patel reported to police force that his Porsche had been purloined. Initially, Patel resisted giving his residence address, rather providing details of his parent's address. When he eventually gave his own address, officers attended the property as part of their probe into the stolen car. Here they discovered a number of high-value vehicles in the basement car park. Officers identified that one of the cars had a personalized number plate identical to one seen earlier on a vehicle outside Patel's parent's address. Further inquiries by officers established that the five vehicles in the car park had fake number plates and each was later confirmed to have been purloined. Shortly, Patel was arrested at his address. During a hunt of his possessions, Met Police officers recovered 26 sets of car keys, likewise lists of registrations and vehicles, devices for accessing onboard computers in vehicles, programming keys and a number of tablets, mobile phones, and laptops. Following a detailed investigation, led by officers from Croydon's Serious Acquisitive Crime Unit, a total of 19 stolen vehicles with an estimated value of 728,000 pounds were linked to Patel and later seized, also nine sets of keys which had been stolen from Jaguar Land Rover's plant in Solihull, West Midlands, and a laptop purloined in Streatham area of south London during a burglary. During the trial, judge H H J Gower commended the work of the Scotland Yard officer, Police Constable Andy Garland, whose work identified the first stolen vehicle. The police subsequently discovered that Patel had been using the vehicles in the running of an "off-the-books" vehicle rental enterprises, where vehicles were rented out to his connections and associates. The vehicles had been purloined by unknown individuals during burglaries and keyless thefts across London between October 2012 and January 2015 and were stored at or near addresses owned by Patel and his kin, or with links who looked after the vehicles for him or rented them from him. The identities of the cars were hidden using legitimate insurance details of vehicles which had been written off on official records. By Sowmya Sangam
