Archives For interview

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

This has just showed up online. A super squishable Chulpan Khamatova, plus two other pictures from her childhood that were all feature on a short interview (I’m not sure what it is), which you can view on Lenta.ru — There’s an alternative Vimeo link, but it’s taken from the source.

I gotta admit that I haven’t watched many of Juhi’s films yet. She’s certainly popped up quite a number of times in supporting roles here and there, but in terms of fandoms, Madhuri’s filmography has taken the lead. Having said that, I was taken by how candid and honest Juhi was with her answers.

While Madhuri is strictly diplomatic with her answers, revealing enough but not too much; Juhi’s relationship with her rise to fame and her mistakes through the course of her career seemed… refreshing. I’ve barely seen her, but it feels like I got a small window to get to know her. That’s an interesting quality in movie stars nowadays.

But seriously- THE moment of the day is Ranveer Singh’s tribute to the both of them. How could anyone be sexy, sweet, cute, funny, dorky and such a good actor.

For some reason, StarTV has made the clips private, but you can still watch the episodes on their website.

[Talking about her traits compared to her The Namesake character] In six months, I will drive my husband mad. I will cry; I will not cook because I do not know how. I will crave for home food and he will have to take me to an Indian joint. I will cry more because I will have to walk to the taxi. I will feel hot; I will feel cold… and I will be miserable, even though I will enjoy meeting new people and eating at nice restaurants.
