Muzammil Ibrahim : “I Will Never work With Pooja Bhatt Again”

19,319 views


Muzammil Ibrahim surely has guts and super confidence. Firstly he enters Bollywood with a name Muzammil? No offence to the name. But come on, how can one expect to become a popular film star if he has a name like that. How can you expect girls drooling over him when they will be utterly confounded pronouncing his name. Or did Muzammil expect his fans to give him a nick name like Muzzy. Oh come on, I can not think of one appellation for Muzammil too.
Ok, forget the name part of it. Say he is a great actor (which I highly doubt). And he bewilders the audience with his performance in Dhoka. But he surely has not started well. What kind of impression you will have of an actor who has fights with the director ( Pooja Bhatt) who launched him. Surely that’s utterly unprofessional.

Here is an interview with Muzammil Ibrahim where he speaks about his estranged relationship with Pooja Bhatt and his affair with Om Shanti Om heroine Deepika Padukone. Read on….

What do you play in Dhokha?

I play a patriotic Indian Muslim in the film, who sends a message that patriotism is above religion.

You have had an attitude problem. To begin with, you shocked Mahesh Bhatt even before Dhoka began. You called him and said that your neighbours were beating you up because you are a Muslim. Isn’t that true?

I don’t remember if I called up Bhatt saab to tell him that it was happening because I was a Muslim. I might have told him in that tense moment.

But the fight had stemmed from the fact because your neighbours felt that you are uncourteous towards the women and the children in the building?

It was a family matter and things got out of control. So I had to get involved. It started with my mother and I had to get in. If I was uncourteous towards women and children, you think anybody would have spared me? My arm was injured and my brother’s throat was bleeding. Anyway, now I have shifted from that building. So, I guess, even that’s over now.

Ashoke Pandit (director cum social activist) who had accompanied Bhatt calmed down the neighbours and asked them to file a police complaint instead of taking the law in their hands and beating you up?

I don’t know.

Muzammil

Later, Pandit called up Pooja if she was sure that she wanted to work with Muzammil. When Pooja mentioned this to you, you complained to her that Pandit perhaps had some personal agenda against you?

Look, I don’t know who is Ashoke Pandit and I don’t know if he made any call to Pooja.

Then you had a showdown with Pooja on the sets? You were supposed to hold Tulip in a graceful and tender way. But you refused to follow Pooja’s instructions?

I don’t want to work with Pooja Bhatt again. Pooja is a very aggressive person and I had lot of problems with her. I expected more maturity from her in dealing with people. She should be clear and patient with youngsters.

Weren’t you dating Om Shanti Om’s leading lady Deepika Padukone?

Who says?

That doesn’t answer my question?

Well, we met during our early modelling days. Yes, Deepika and I were dating each other. But it is over now.

Why did you’ll split?

I wouldn’t like to talk about my past in detail.

    Hi Muzummil ,

    Really its a very sweet name and I really like the acting which u have done in Dhokha , and it my predition that one day u will be the superstar , when u act the originality in their in ur face which make audience feel the happy and sad momment we with and according to me that’s an actor .And Personal Request it might be some problem with you while working with Pooja Bhatt and big statement which u have given that u will never work with pooja , I think it was her efforts that people know u as any Actor today so don’t forget that she has given u a break in this film industry or u could also have been like struggler . As a freind I will say that u should say sorry to her and patch up with her.

    Best of luck for futrue superstar

    u guys have an awesome way of criticizing stars dont you?

  5. Comment by Nikita Desai

    Umm… okay… i dun really get this because this is another interview i got on the net, and it seems to say something VERY different from this one…

    Tell us something about the movie and your role in it.
    The story is about someone who loves his country and follows his principles. Life is good but then things suddenly become gory. Zaid is confronted by people and is accused for no reason. His wife is then accused of being a suicide-bomber. Initially, Zaid dismisses the idea but when the offence is proved, he gets disheveled. He starts his journey to seek the truth. This results in a conflict between him and society.

    Your comments on your co-stars.
    It was fun working with all of them. Tulip joined later, but working with Aushima Sawhney was great. The understanding between us was just too good.

    How was your experience of working with Pooja Bhatt?
    Everybody has his/her share of successes and failures in life. Pooja Bhatt can be very good. But then, she has Mr. Bhatt on her side.

    Has Mahesh Bhatt directed any part of Dhoka?
    He is an integral part of the camp, he had to be there all the time. We all wanted him; I wanted him to be there for guidance. It was only after he met me was my character penned. I think he is a genius.

    It’s said that those who start their careers under the Bhatt banner get instant success. Your comments?
    Obviously, I am proud to be debuting under the Bhatt banner. They have produced some of the best guys in the industry today. I had faith in the script. How well the movie does would be clear in a few days. As far as I am concerned I am lucky to have got the chance to carry the entire movie on my shoulders. Mr. Bhatt had trust on me.

    Did acting happen to you accidentally?
    No, modeling happened to me accidentally, and since then, I had wanted to act. As an actor, you get to do so much, you learn a lot.

    Apart from Dhoka, what other projects are you working on?
    I have a few other projects as well, but it’s officially incorrect to talk about them. I will speak about them when the time comes. Or else, I might be thrown out of the camp. You know how these production people are.

    Would you like to be known as an actor or as a model?
    A: Today, if I am here it’s all because of modeling, yet I will love to be known as an actor. Acting is something that will continue for a long time, and as an actor you get to play various roles. It has creativity involved in it.

    Is Muzammil a better actor or a model?
    I leave this to the public to decide. When I walked the ramp, I was praised by so many. Similarly, the verdict would come when my film is released.

    Are you satisfied with the support and blessings so far in the industry?
    It is so funny, but yet so interesting that people whom I don’t even know are so helpful. I’m from another town, yet the love and affection I get here is just remarkable. People back me when things go wrong. All this only makes me feel blessed.

    salamzzzzzzzzzzzz!
    my cute brother MUZAMMIL , how are you , may god give you victory over all your enemies , for me you are a tremendous model as well as actor , keep it up ……….. may allah give u fame in further life

  7. Comment by stephanie

    I say you are a developing actor and have much work ahead of you but that is expected for all new comers. I think you will have similar fame to that of John Abraham but it will up to you in how far you go. Just remember where you come from and work hard. I look forward to seeing you on screen. Take constructive criticism well and be modest and you will go a long way. Good luck!

    Ps. I think you’ve already done a spendid job if people are already posting up blogs and creating drama about you.

  8. Comment by uma

    wowww. okay, i don’t care what his name is, or how he acted with pooja bhatt, at least he has the balls to say what he really feels, i’m sure a lot of people don’t say what they really feel.

    and he will be a “super hit” because he’s the best looking actor in bollywood. ahh, so beautiful, Mashallah.

  9. Comment by maira

  11. Comment by manahil

    well, i personally think that this interview iz totally false, because i’d heard that deepika padukone had dated dhoni, nihar pandiya, and now ranbir kapoor, but muzammil ibrahim was never in any list, but if it is true, then deepika padukone has surely dated ALOT of guys…………….i still love u muzammil, inspite of your name, or these ppl criticizing u

  25. Comment by Chitra. Netalkar

    Hi,Muzammil…
    This is Chitra..Your movie(Dhokha)is tremendous..seriouly…People whoever had seen your film had given you a greattt position.i want you to do more film like DHOKHA. as you are a muslim and you had acted sooo beautifully in the movie as a hindu.And people loved that atleast there is one person i.e your director had thought about our country and made the movie,launching you as a lead actor..SORRY that we people had not seen your movie at the time it was released..the reason is you and your co-star are not so famous like S.R.K, Ranbir Kapoor,priyanka Chopra,etc.. You should do one movie with these superstar, the movie like DHOKHA.. I’m sure the whole world will come to know who is MUZAMMIL IBRAHIM…
    If you felt something WRONG i spoken.For that i’m exremely SORRY or you want to clarify something you can be in touch with me, my email is lagibet@rocketmail.com

  26. Comment by Ayyub

    Muzammil was my Junior in Jamia. We were staying in the same hostel, he was so calm and decent that when we were having a small session of introduction in the common room of the hostel, he reacted in a very good manner and he was used to give alot of respect to his seniors. I remember him, praying Fajr in the Mosque, early in the morning. I wish him all the very best for the future and advice him (if he reads, although there are very chances)not to break the principles of life and always get connected with Allah. This world is not for ever, we all have to die one day and then only our practices will go with us, niether fame nor money.
