Kartik Tiwari’s near death experience while shooting for Kaanchi

After returning to Mumbai from Nainital, Subhash Ghai shared an experience while shooting for Kaanchi in Nainital which was according to him, a close call!

Subhash Ghai, “My heart beat almost stopped while shooting for a song. Seated on the mountain’s edge, Kartik would have slipped into the deep ravine. It was a rain song sequence that we were shooting. He and Mishti, the new heroine, had to sit on different stones at the peaks of two mountains, facing each other. This was an edge of a mountain. Since this was a long shot cranes were being used and there was nobody near him. What nobody realised was that the mud stone on which Kartik was sitting on was gradually melting because of the torrential rain. The music was loud and all of us were concentrating on getting the perfect shot. Kartik realised what was happening, but being a dedicated actor, he continued with the scene. After I shouted ‘Cut’ as the scene was perfect, we saw the stone give away, and Kartik nearly slipped down. But he held on a stone nearby. When I asked Kartik why did he not called for a ‘Cut’, he said, he wanted to complete the shot. Has he fallen down it was a good 2000 feet into the valley. All of us were petrified. I must say, God was kind and saved us from a tragedy.”

Kaanchi is produced and directed by Subhash Ghai, starring newcomer Mishti, Kartik Tiwari, Rishabh Sinha, Rishi Kapoor and Mithun Chakraborty and is slated to release in August.

A Beautiful Actress in the Making

Mishti, the 21 year old Bengali beauty is all set to make her mark in Bollywood with Kaanchi. 

The hunt for the lead actress of Kaanchi was the hot news and a controversial one. After large number of auditions and out of 350 girls, Subhash Ghai finalised Mishti and since then he has been all praises for Mishti’s beauty and talent. “I am so relieved to find an apt actor to play the character of Kaanchi that I had conceived. Mishti is a combination of beauty and talent, all the way. She is one of the best actors I have found” says Subhash Ghai.

It’s often tricky for newcomers to promote their debut movie and to be in the news, but Mishti does not seem to have that problem. Everyone, especially on Social Media platforms, audiences are going all gaga over Mishti’s beautiful face, especially her eyes

Yesterday Once More

After a five-year hiatus, the Showman is back with a new film, Kaanchi, which also launches a new face, Mishti. 

Mirror lensman Sachin Haralkar was present at Film City, Goregaon, where a fresh schedule of the movie was being shot by Subhash Ghai. 

Seen in the photograph are Mithun Chakraborty and Rishi Kapoor hugging each other and looking rather animated as if having a fun conversation. 

An eyewitness said: "The two of them get busy talking to each other in between shots. Ghai too joins them and sometimes, gets nostalgic, taking a trip down memory lane. However, once it is time to shoot, they all become rather focussed and concentrate on what they are supposed to do." 

According to the eyewitness, as Ghai has worked with Rishi and Mithun previously, the trio share a great equation and the atmosphere on the sets is always charged. Apparently, at some point during the shoot, Ghai even remarked: "Magic is created by two things, the characters written in the script and the characters played by the actors. And I only work with people I have a rapport with."

Kartik Tiwari, "Subhash Ghai is going to make it big with Kaanchi"

Subhash Ghai returns to direction after a hiatus of five years with this ambitious project. Ghai had last directed the Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Yuvvraaj.

Ghai has been a wonderful mentor to Kartik, who plays the male lead in Kaanchi. Talking about his shooting experience, the actors says, "We shot in Nainital for 15-20 days and it felt like a picnic. The place was beautiful and we'd end up partying every day. But we also worked very hard".

Elaborating on the showman of Bollywood, he adds, "Subhash sir is very clear with what he wants. He saw to it that we completed our daily schedule on time. I don't know how he managed that. This was my first experience with him and he's happy with the entire cast. He has so much passion and energy, I can't imagine myself in his shoes and doing what he does. The amount of effort he's put into Kaanchi, he's going to make it big with this film"
