Despite Kesari, Randeep Hooda feels ‘Battle of Saragarhi is still begging for a better film’



Randeep Hooda has not been seen onscreen for a long time – the actor says it was because he was busy with a film “on the Battle of Saragarhi for two to three years, which didn’t fructify”, but refrains from saying on why the film was shelved. He adds, “Ask if he wishes his film was made, Randeep laughs, “I think the story of the Battle of Saragarhi is still begging for a better film despite all the films out there.”

Though Randeep’s film never saw light of the day, the subject continues to interest filmmakers — there has been a web show 21 Sarfarosh:?Saragarhi 1897 starring Mohit Raina, and the Akshay Kumar-starrer Kesari is also based on the battle.

“The worst things in life teach you the best things. I think I am a better person now. I imbibe a lot of Sikhism and [there’s] a sense of seva, and gratitude [in me],” Randeep added.

He likes to give his “heart and soul to acting” and has done films for “less money and even for free”. He’s also known to undergo extreme transformations for his roles in films such as Sarbjit (2016) and Do Lafzon Ki Kahani (2016). While many feel Randeep Hooda is yet to get his due in Bollywood, the actor isn’t complaining. “You can look at it in two ways – your internal journey, which I think has been a great experience. Secondly, my external journey that’s not in my hands. If I talk about [the fact that] I haven’t got my dues, it’s just unbecoming and uncool,” he says, adding that one should “forget that the world owes you something.”

Randeep is now gearing up for his next film, with Imtiaz Ali. The two had earlier collaborated for Cocktail (2012) and Highway (2014) and the actor calls it a “very colourful association”. “There are some things in common like the love for arts and purity of approach to work. We’ve teamed up again and I enjoyed the process,” shares Randeep, who recalls how Highway, despite the character’s quirkiness, stood the test of time.

Randeep’s career graph shows he seems to be taking it slow and steady. After a packed 2016, he didn’t do a single film in 2017 and even last year, he had a cameo in Baaghi 2 (2018).

The Elephant Whisperer: The Heartwarming Story of a Couple and Their Orphaned Elephant!



In a world where we are often disconnected from nature and the creatures that inhabit it, “The Elephant Whisperers” brings us closer to the heart of one of the most intelligent and majestic animals on earth – the elephant. This documentary, which won the Oscar for Best Documentary in 2023, follows the story of Bomman and Belli, an indigenous couple who become the surrogate parents to an orphaned baby elephant named Raghu.

Set in the breathtakingly beautiful Mudumalai National Park in Tamil Nadu, India, the film takes us on a journey through the wilderness, showing us the natural beauty of the location and the life of the tribal people who live in harmony with nature. From the very beginning, we are captivated by the bond that develops between Bomman, Belli, and Raghu.

When Raghu is first found by the couple, he is a fragile, injured infant who is barely clinging to life. Bomman and Belli take on the responsibility of caring for him, nursing him back to health with love, patience, and a deep understanding of his needs. As the weeks go by, Raghu thrives under their care, becoming a healthy and mischievous juvenile who delights into playing with his human parents and exploring the forest around them.

The film captures the incredible intelligence and emotional depth of elephants, showing us how Raghu communicates with Bomman and Belli through a range of sounds and body language. We see how the couple responds to his needs, anticipating his every move and showering him with love and attention. The bond between them is truly heartwarming, and we can’t help but be moved by the way they care for Raghu.

But “The Elephant Whisperers” is more than just a story of a couple and their pet elephant. It is a celebration of the beauty and richness of the natural world, and a reminder of our duty to protect and preserve it. Through stunning cinematography and insightful commentary, the film shows us the interconnectedness of all life and the importance of living in harmony with the world around us.

The film also raises important questions about the conservation of elephants in India and the threats they face from habitat loss, poaching, and human-elephant conflict. It is a call to action for all of us to take responsibility for the welfare of these magnificent creatures and to work towards a future where they can thrive in their natural habitats.

“The Elephant Whisperers” is a film that will stay with you long after the credits have rolled. It is a powerful reminder of the beauty and fragility of the natural world, and of the incredible capacity for love and compassion that exists within us all.
