How did these films inspire Hriday?



Hriday Shetty uses his favourite movie titles for character names in his upcoming film ‘Chaalis Chauraasi’

Every filmmaker has a list of favourite movies and so does director Hriday Shetty. And to acknowledge these movies he has named the lead characters of his next movie, ‘Chaalis Chauraasi’ after them. Hriday loves Mahesh Bhatt’s 1993 release ‘Sir’ which stars actor Naseeruddin Shah and in ‘Chaalis Chauraasi’, Naseer’s character is also called by the same name. Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia starrer ‘Bobby’ is another favourite of his and that is exactly what Atul Kulkarni’s character in his movie is called. Another Naseer starrer that is Hriday’s favourite is ‘Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyon Aata Hai’, after which he has named actor Kay Kay Menon’s character. And last but not the least is the 1982 Dilip Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan starrer movie, ‘Shakti’ and he has named actor Ravi Kishan’s character after the movie title.

“I was born in the industry and since a kid watching movies has been quite an addiction. But out of the many favourites, ‘Bobby’, ‘Shakti’, ‘Sir’ and ‘Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyon Aata Hai’ stand out for me. I wanted to acknowledge them in some way in ‘Chaalis Chauraasi’. And what better way than naming my characters after these movies. So I named Naseer saab- Sir, Atul is Bobby, Kay Kay is Albert Pinto and Ravi is Shakti,” explains Hriday. 

Exploring the comic thriller genre, 'Chaalis Chauraasi' is like a rollercoaster ride in an amusement park except that it takes place in a police van and involves four cops who have an opporunity to make a fortune yet risk their lives in the process of attempting the same. The movie is slated to release on January 13, 2012.
