Hello Reshammiyans!

It is with great pleasure that I present our first interview of 2016. As Himeshji’s 10th film as an actor ‘Teraa Surroor’ releases in cinemas today, I am delighted to present our interview with the films director Shawn Arranha! Read on to learn about Shawn’s experience of making Teraa Surroor with our Rockstar.


Please share with us a bit about your journey and how things began for you in the Bollywood industry.

I have been in this Industry for along time. Working with the best Directors and Producers like Farhan Akthar, Apoorva Lakhia etc. I wanted to master all genres as a film director in order to become a versatile director.

‘Aap Kaa Surroor movie’ did exceptionally well at the BO. How does it feel to be a part of the sequel ‘Teraa Surroor’?

Yes ‘Aap Ka Surroor movie’ was a huge success. It feels great to be part of the SURROOR Franchise. ‘Teraa Surroor’ is my version of storytelling and Himesh Reshammiya’s new look and style. Himeshji has a toned slick cool gangster body. It’s a great combination and the response has been fantastic.

‘Teraa Surroor’ has been shot overseas in a location such as Dublin . How was the experience of shooting abroad?

The Country Ireland is so beautiful and picturesque and the city Dublin is amazing. The people there are so warm and great fun. They kept the unit happy and in smiles. It was so easy to shoot there. The technicians were amazing.

Please share with us your experience of working with Himeshji.

Himesh Reshammiya is an amazing person, it was so good to work with him. He understands the business of Bollywood so well that I learnt so much from him by just listening to his conversations with me.

As a producer he gave me everything I needed to make this film look good nothing was compromised. He is a fantastic Music Composer his music is so melodious that I fell in love with all the songs he created. He had a very strict diet and regime to get into the character of Raghu. He is a wonderful person.

Please share with us your experience of working with HR Musik.

HR Musik and Tseries are fantastic producers. They fully understand the story and gave the director Me what ever I needed to make the film look big and great. I had such a good time working for them and making this film Teraa Surroor.

Which is your favourite song from ‘Aap Kaa Surroor movie’?

Aap Ka Surroor had many good music tracks and that’s the biggest forte of Himesh Reshammiya, its is his music. I loved The track Tera Surroor and Asalam Walekum, they are also part of my film Teraa Surroor. Even Tanhaiyaan was so melodious and soulful.

Which is your favourite song from ‘Teraa Surroor’?

When you make a musical Action love story, the music has to be very strong. I cannot say if there is any one song, cause I like all of them Himesh’s Songs are all superb and melodious I love them all and shooting them too was amazing. He has made hit music with lots of Big names like Salman Khan , Akshay Kumar, etc. and the response of our film Teraa Surroor also is fantatstic. The whole Album has been accepted so well and loved by all.

Please share with us your favourite scene from the movie (if possible!)

Well there are lots of moments in the film which are my favourite like the ‘Pagal Pagal’ scene and then the scenes with Himesh and Naseeruddin shah are very nice. Actually its very tough to point out one, cause there are many moments.

What has been your most memorable part of making ‘Teraa Surroor’?

The most memorable part while making the film, was to see the entire team believing and working hard to make this film a success. A film is made thru teamwork and we had a good Team.

Please share with us your future projects.

As of now I am in talks with few producers and locking a film soon. I want to be a very Versatile Director, so I am concentrating on good stories in the right Budget which is very important. Will let you know as soon as thinks get signed.
