I just ran into this interview Khamatova did for the Russian version of Interview magazine back in 2012, and ran it through Google Translate (of course!). It’s short, but she seems to be talking about the difference between Russian and German acting methods, why it doesn’t seem like she goes well with Russian cinema, blockbusters, and the general view of people who see a ‘russian’ on screen.

And the article is accompanied by this gorgeous shot of her face by Aleksey Sorokin (Алексей Сорокин).

Ang Lee, who’s shy and hardly says anything, told me, ‘you giggle like a school girl’. That was sweet.

iDiva.

Hahaha. It’s funny ‘coz it’s true!

Tabu on Ang Lee’s Thoughts on Her

Ok, I admit I’ve been getting a bit crazed over Madhuri and Juhi over the past couple of days, and I was reading a double interview they both did for the promotion of Gulaab Gang, with the whole talk on female-centric films et all. I just thought: Joan Crawford.

We need a Joan Crawford revival, yo!

Since Madhuri wouldn’t mind doing a musical, I propose a re-imagining of Torch Song for her. Coz, duh! Just switch the Broadway musical star to Bollywood, and you got yourself a Madhuri vehicle right there. You only need to avoid the blackface scene (lol!), develop better the relationship with Michael Wilding’s character, and add a demanding choreography a la boastful excess Bollywood style. I’ll need to re-watch it to figure out the whats and hows.

How about Autumn Leaves and Queen Bee as alternative?

Or a re-imagining of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? with Juhi as Baby Jane! LOL! I LOVE IT! Now that I’ve seen her doing the evil smirk politician, I wanna see her in a Bette Davis grotesque role. That’ll really stretch her acting. I dunno how the rat scene will fly in India, though.

Vidya Balan is not pregnant! I say this like I’m a bad person, but I’m selfish like that. You saw the state of panic the internet went, especially from us fans?It’s a sign of relief now (for a while)~~~ we got Vidya Balan’s movies for a little while longer!

On March 20th, 2004, I watched Good Bye, Lenin! Though my rekindling didn’t happen until last year, I feel it’s somewhat an important day. Plus, I had my Vancouver ticket, so why not? I didn’t prepare anything special, though I was thinking of re-watching the movie. Turns out I’m kinda movie-busy until the end of the month, so I doubt I can re-watch anything.

But I went image web-hunting :)
