Actor Vindu Dara Singh has looked back at the time when his father, actor Dara Singh, played Hanuman in Ramanand Sagar’s popular series, “Ramayan”.
“Lanka Dahan was one of the most challenging scenes done by my father. He always believed in giving his 100 per cent to whatever he did, but shooting with naked flames always has its own challenges as well as risks. On top of that he was in his heavy make–up but he never complained. He did his own stunts with the real fighters. Before inflaming my father’s faux tail, Ramanand Sagar ji took all the precautionary measures and the scene went smoothly,” said Vindu.
Lanka Dahan is one of the most important sequences of “Ramayan”. Hanuman gets captured by Ravan’s army and his tail is set on fire, but he escapes and leaps from roof to roof, setting fire to Ravan’s citadel and makes the giant leap back from the island to the Indian Ocean.
Talking about the epic sequence, Ramanand Sagar’s son Prem Sagar said: “The Lanka Dahan chapter was crafted with a lot of thought by Ramanand Sagar and his team. This sequence required a lot of skill and creativity both in writing and technical aspect. From Dara ji’s acting and quirky expressions to Anand Sagar’s creative shooting angles, this track portrayed it all. For the sequence, we specially hired an artificial-tail expert as the tail needed to catch fire and we could not afford to use just ropes. Then Dara Singh ji starved every day for six hours (for 7 days) during this scene and still performed it with so much conviction and finally Anand Sagar shot it beautifully using all possible innovation and technique available in those days.”
The eighties show has been brought back on television and is now airing on Star Plus.
Stranger Things: WHAT! Millie Bobby Brown Didn’t Read The ‘Letter’ Until The Shoot Day & It’s Breaking Our Hearts
Millie Bobby Brown has become a household name at such a young age. The Godzilla actress rose to fame with Netflix original series, Stranger Things and is multi-talented. Brown isn’t just a great actress but also a kickass singer and rapper!
Yes, you read that right. In fact, a while ago there were reports that stated that Millie Bobby Brown is working on her solo album amid the lockdown.
Recently, in conversation with Netflix Queue, Stranger Things actress spoke about a lot of things including how was it shooting for the that one scene in particular, when David Harbour aka Jim Hopper (his adopted father) left the last letter for Eleven (Brown’s character).
“I didn’t want to read the letter [ahead of time]. I wanted to read it on the day. I then asked for a speaker to be on set to hear [the recording of] his actual voice, because David’s voice is very distinctive, and just the way he says things, it brings a lot of emotion to me. So I didn’t read it,” said Eleven aka Millie Bobby Brown from Stranger Things.
“Then when I came on set, they played the letter. We just rolled camera and let my reaction flow. I know the take we chose wasn’t the first, because my nose was red initially. As the takes went on, I started to get more into it and way more emotional. I just like to base everything off of instinct,” Brown concluded.
Isn’t that beautiful?
