It was the eve of Vidhu Vinod Chopra Films celebrating 30 years of the Bollywood classic ‘Parinda’. Both written and helmed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Parinda was released on the 3rd of November 1989. It will complete 30 years this Sunday. This Bollywood crime-drama had a stellar cast that included names like Anil Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Nana Patekar and Madhuri Dixit.
Celebrating 30 years of Parinda, Vidhu Vinod Chopra Films took to their social media handles and shared some video clips and BTS content from the flick. It is a perfect trip down the nostalgic lane about one of Bollywood’s most iconic movies ever made.
The makers tweeted,
“@AnilKapoor has always been a perfectionist when it comes to his shots. Here is @bindasbhidu sharing how it took 17 ‘hard’ takes to get the final cut for one of #Parinda’s scenes. #30YearsOfParinda”

Not just stopping at that Jackie Shroff shared his experience while he was shooting the iconic film,
“Anil Kapoor wanted to express that his elder brother had slapped him and in the very first shot the take was perfect with the perfect expressions captured but Anil Kapoor wants one more shot and it took 17 hard slaps to shoot the scene, and I was forced to slap him in real because he can’t give expressions based on fake slaps.”
Talking about Vidhu Vinod Chopra‘s next flick, it is Shikara which is slated to release in 2019.
And when it comes to Anil Kapoor, he is currently doing promotions for Pagalpanti that is set for a 22nd November release. And work on his Malang was wrapped up just last month i.e. 7 October 2019 and it will be released on Valentine’s Day next year i.e. 14 February 2020.
And coming to Jackie Shroff’s current status in Bollywood, his last flick: Prassthanam had a nose dive at the box office. Tamil flick: Bigil is expected to revive his fortunes.
