Model turned actor Rajniesh is having a ball of a time as of now. He has just returned from Rajasthan and is ecstatic. His movie Dangerous Ishq directed by Vikram Bhatt is all wrapped up and is in post production, he has just romanced Karisma Kapoor for 90 days in the movie, he has got his first ever overseas movie release and he has interacted with Chris Kroitor - a 3D supervisor for Michael Bay's Transformers. Can we say Rajniesh is on cloud nine with Dangerous Ishq getting bigger and better? The actor quotes, "Dangerous Ishq is getting bigger than my debut film 1920, that's for sure. It's good for me and the film if you think so. The fact that Vikram Bhatt is shooting it in 3D makes it even majestic. We've got a team of five flown down from Canada and one of them, Chris Kroitor, is the main supervisor of Michael Bay's Transformers who is a 3D systems tech guy. With that, Reliance Big Pictures came in straight away and there were lots of expectations. And of course, Dangerous Ishq is Karisma's return to the big screen again and every step the movie is getting bigger and better."
Pitted as Karisma's comeback movie, I ask the actor to give us some insight into his different look that spans across four different era's, "In this film, Karisma and I have four different looks. We go back to the Meera Bai era, 1947 to the present 2012 look. I don't want to reveal too much. There are different levels of characters I am playing. Like in the 1947 look, I have a beard and long hair and I am playing a Muslim character. So I'm just not restricted to playing one man with same looks. It's a challenge for any male actor in today's time. Like how Sanjeev Kumar played in Naya Din Nai Raat", Rajniesh comments.
And with such a hiatus in building his overseas fans, what does he think Dangerous Ishq will bring to him in terms of fan following? To which Rajniesh quotes, "The time has come I build my overseas fan base with Dangerous Ishq because it will be releasing worldwide. This is good for me because my previous two movies were restricted to India alone. Dangerous Ishq is a benchmark film for me."
Romancing new comers like Adah Sharma and Roshni Chopra, this is the first time where Rajniesh, relatively a newcomer himself, is romancing his senior and one of 1990's most glamorous and beautiful faces, Karisma Kapoor. Romancing the Kapoor ain't that easy but Rajniesh is one lucky individual. "It feels good to romance Karisma Kapoor and join the band of brothers like Salman, Govinda, Akshay, etc (laughs). She is a fantastic actor and a fabulous co-star to act with. It adds on to the whole chemistry. She is a senior to me and I have learnt how to handle multiple jobs and how to be good at multi-tasking. It's amazing how a woman can do this", the actor declares.
But for Rajniesh, the actor, it's the experience that counts. The valued time for him as an artist who saw things differently by observing his senior Karisma. "She has a habit of watching her every take. I don't do that but it's always nice to know how interested an actor is and what she can add on to her role. It's like even though the director is OK sometimes, you as an actor can make that take even better and sometimes it works. I loved Karisma in Zubeida, Fiza, Judwaa, Haseena Maan Jaayegi and Anari with Venkatesh", Rajniesh quotes.
Now if you look at it, besides it being a Rajneesh-Karisma starrer and a film directed by Vikram Bhatt, what makes Dangerous Ishq special is that the film is shot in 3D and not converted. The film fraternity around the globe going crazy over 3D, and I ask Rajniesh what makes his movie worth a watch in the 3 Dimensional. The actor answers, "Overall in the world, there is a survey done that people love seeing action, horror and thrillers in 3D. No one wants to see a comedy or a love story in 3D. Dangerous Ishq has all the above. It's a love story with a thrill, action and a bit of suspense."
