The actress is known to sort her looks out a month prior to the events and that totally shows how serious she is when it comes to her wardrobe. She recently made her exit from Bigg Boss 14 where she was one of the Toofani seniors apart from Gauahar Khan and Sidharth Shukla. On the show, Hina’s looks were surely the talk of the town and her fans just couldn’t get enough of her style and chic fashion sense.

From a neon outfit for her entrance performance on the show to a classy off-white number on the last day, Hina Khan has enthralled the audience in all her looks so far and we can’t help but appreciate the fashionista in her.

The first look on the show was a classy Swapnil Shinde gown that she wore on the premiere night. Hina Khan donned a tulle neck gown with golden sequins work and mesh detailing. The high-bun hairstyle surely showed of her chiseled shoulders and the fans were left swooning over her nude eye makeup, classic winged eyeliner and dark lip colour.

Choosing a monochrome flared skirt and top and rounding it off with a white jacket only added to the charm. Minimalistic looks go a long way these days and Hina Khan surely knows just how to pull those off with ease. However, the highlight of the look has to be the yellow hue in her eyeliner.

Next up on the show, Hina Khan pulled off a black saree with a multi-coloured detailings keeping her ethnic game strong as ever. With a messy bun and a simple make-up, Hina Khan surely impressed everyone with her style yet again.

With all denim look being quite questionable if not carried well, Hina Khan’s coordinated skirt and the top is surely a game-changer. Sporting her short hair like a queen, Hina Khan played around with an electric blue eyeliner yet again to round off her look.

Hina Khan was next seen dressed in a monochrome dress by Nikhita Tandon from her spring summer 2020 collection. The actress kept it really simple but also the frilled detailing on the dress were all the texture she needed to round off the look.

Hina Khan has been imparting lessons on how to look extremely stylish and at the same time be comfortable with her flared shirt and palazzo pants in this Pallavi Singh outfit.

Pairing and off-shoulder shimmery blouse by Shivangi Jain with an off-white wrap skirt by Done And Dusted, Hina Khan looked absolutely simple in this classic combination.

Hina Khan was then seen pairing separates by Label Sugar which consisted of white pants and coat along with a crop top. To add a little more texture to her look, Hina Khan donned a nose-pin balancing out the entire look.

Dressed in a one-shoulder jumpsuit with studs by MellowDrama, this has got to be one of our favourite looks from the season. Going retro with her look, Hina Khan wore hooped earrings for accessories and tied a scarf around her low-ponytail.

A casual printed crop top with denim may seem like a very simple choice to go with while you’re on television. Leave it to Hina Khan to make the simplest of the looks as glam as possible.

Dressed in a maroon coloured festive outfit from Drishti Zahabia’s Nūr collection, Hina Khan’s ethnic outfit paired with a pair of festive earrings has to be your go-to look for the next Zoom wedding!

Being in the house can take a toll with a lot of drama going on around you, however, Hina Khan ensured to be red-carpet ready with her teal green one-shoulder gown from Antithesis. With simple drop down earrings, Hina Khan rounded off her look with minimalistic makeup.

The last look that Hina Khan donned was an off-white dress by Sahil Kocchar and the retro fit has surely left us stupefied. Keeping it simple and stunning as ever, Hina Khan’s look was the one that you need to add to your dream wardrobe!

Keeping it stylish, sassy, and classy, Hina Khan’s fashion sense keeps getting better by the day and we are absolutely looking forward to more of her!

"Munna Bhaiya will always be incomplete without Compounder”, says Abhishek Banerjee on Mirzapur

Posted by on PP in

Movies have always been reflection of our lives and without friendship our lives are definitely incomplete. And, over the years Bollywood has shown us noteworthy examples of the true bond of friendship. One such onscreen duo who has redefined friendship goals for all of us is the iconic pair of Munna Bhaiya (played by Divyenndu Sharma) and Compounder (played by Abhishek Banerjee) from the acclaimed web series - Mirzapur.

"Munna Bhaiya will always be incomplete without Compounder”, says Abhishek Banerjee on Mirzapur

Abhishek Banerjee has played the character of Subodh, a compounder and a loyal friend to the son of mafia boss and heir to his empire – Munna Bhaiya in the series Mirzapur. While the series had earned immense appreciation for its intriguing storyline and outstanding performances by the entire star cast, one of the primary reasons for the series to receive so much love was the unique depiction of friendship between two criminals.

As the launch of the series second season approaches, Abhishek Banerjee shares, “Mirzapur will always be special to me. The show helped me to explore my potential as an actor with a unique character at hand. The amount of love and appreciation I received for my role was overwhelming. Although my character had a brutal ending in the first season, I feel Munna Bhaiya will always be incomplete without his trusted aide - Compounder. I hope the audience misses me while binge-watching the new season.” He signs off with a smile.

While Abhishek recently delivered an outstanding performance as Hathoda Tyagi with Paatal Lok and the comedy series Pari-war, the actor will be seen in upcoming movies like - Rashmi Rocket, Helmet and Aankh Micholi.

Posted by on PP in

Netflix recently dropped the trailer of its much-awaited series, A Suitable Boy and we couldn’t get enough of how aesthetically appealing the trailer looked. With an enviable ensemble cast, the series is set to intrigue and captivate audiences with its beautiful storyline and Mira Nair’s spectacular vision.

He also forms a friendship and attachment with the young and dynamic Maan Kapoor (Ishaan Khatter). Vijay had to focus on learning and understanding Urdu in order to essay his character authentically.

EXCLUSIVE: Vijay Varma steps into the role of an Urdu teacher for A Suitable Boy

Talking about his experience, Vijay said, “Rasheed is an Urdu teacher so I had to focus on pronunciations and articulation of certain words and sentences. I spent a lot of time on research, listening to Urdu audio clips and also trained with an Urdu dialect coach to really sink into the character. Urdu is a beautiful and pure language and, if not spoken correctly, won’t have that kind of an impact. Rasheed’s character is complex and layered, and he has his own journey and struggles to deal with, which are revealed through the course of the story.”

Just like any of his other characters, Vijay owned Rasheed’s character, deeply absorbing every nuance.

Tujhse Hai Raabta’s Reem Shaikh and Sehban Azim look unrecognisable in their new Rajasthani avatar

Posted by on PP in

Zee TV’s popular fiction show Tujhse Hai Raabta has been an audience favourite due to its intriguing plot and the fantastic portrayal of strong characters like Kalyani (played by Reem Shaikh) and Malhar (played by Sehban Azim). The storyline has kept the viewers intrigued even after the show took a 5-year leap. With Malhar's world turning upside down after he shot his beloved partner and Kalyani returning as an IAS officer only to find the love of his life married to someone else, the story has been high on drama. In the upcoming episodes of the show, Kalyani will try her best to find out whether Moksh (Malhar & Sampada’s son) is alive or not. The story will intricately take us through the emotions and struggles of Kalyani to find the truth.

Tujhse Hai Raabta’s Reem Shaikh and Sehban Azim look unrecognisable in their new Rajasthani avatar

In fact, Kalyani will be convinced that the long-lost Moksh is still alive and Zee TV’s favourite duo KalMa will try to find him. As a part of their search, Kalyani and Malhar disguise themselves and take up a new Rajasthani look following a lead to catch hold of Yashwant, the person who could help them find Moksh. While KalMa enters the Yashwant house as a part of the catering team, they’re seen dressed in traditional Rajasthani attires for the sequence. Donning the authentic heavy yet colourful Rajasthani Ghagra Choli, dhoti, angarkha and the paggar, Reem Sheikh and Sehban Azim look like natives from Rajasthan. They are unrecognisable and their look has gone viral.

Talking about the experience, Sehban Azim said, “It was indeed quite a lot of fun shooting for this particular sequence. This is the first time that I’m dressed in authentic Rajasthani couture. I was extremely excited to don this look and I simply love the dhoti-angarkha combination with the Rajasthani turban. While handling the costume was quite a task, I would love to wear those clothes again. I simply love how these traditional clothes change the entire look of a person, it is truly mesmerising.”

Furthermore, Reem Sheikh added, “I was in love with my attire for the sequence, I mean who doesn’t love to wear Ghagra Choli. But what I loved the most was that eccentric and authentic Rajasthani jewellery. That really uplifted the whole look. I also loved the vibrant colours of the attire and though it was quite heavy and moving around with it was a task, I enjoyed every bit of it.”

While our favourite KalMa had a blast shooting with this new look, seems like there is a lot of drama set to ensue as their search for Moksh continues.

Shamin Mannan says her character Koyal in Ram Pyare Sirf Hamare is inspired by Priyanka Chopra in Gunday

Posted by on PP in

As a part of the exciting content extravaganza that Zee TV plans to offer its viewers in the festive month of October, the channel has introduced a refreshingly new light-hearted show, Ram Pyaare Sirf Humare, a situational comedy that follows the life of Dulari and her 'prize catch' of a charming husband - Ram and how she turns to a book of worldly wisdom with traditional ‘nuskas’ to keep him safe from the clutches of other women vying for his attention.

Shamin Mannan says her character Koyal in Ram Pyare Sirf Hamare is inspired by Priyanka Chopra in Gunday

Adding masala into this picture-perfect love story is Ram and Dulari's strikingly attractive neighbour, Koel. Portrayed by the talented Shamin Mannan, Koel is an attractive and charmingly talented, smart and out-going personality. While Shamin is an extremely versatile actor, looks like she has gone the extra mile to ace her character. She has not just been working on her fitness and looks, but she also did a lot of research and homework for her character. In fact, she took inspiration from two of the most notable names of the entertainment industry for pulling off her alluring character effortlessly on screen. We are talking about our Desi Girl - Priyanka Chopra and Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe.

Talking about her prep, Ram Pyaare Sirf Humare actress Shamin Mannan revealed, “Koel is very sexy and spicy. Her every move grabs people's attention. In fact, every woman wants to be like her, and every man wants to be around her. She has her own style, her own charm, her way of speaking is different, and she has her own takiya kalam - Aaye Bade. I had to develop it from scratch and the brief that I had got was that I needed to come across as effortlessly seductive. So, I started off my research and two actresses really inspired me for my character in Ram Pyaare Sirf Humare. One was Hollywood sensation Marilyn Monroe and the other is our Indian superstar, Priyanka Chopra. I feel both these women have portrayed some of the hottest characters I have seen and their way of presenting them on the big screen is commendable."

Shamin further added, "I saw a lot of their films to get into the skin of the character Koel for Ram Pyaare Sirf Hamare. In fact, I was very much inspired by Priyanka Chopra’s character Nandita from the movie Gunday. The way Priyanka Chopra carried herself in that hot desi avatar with so much grace and the way she spoke, it really helped me for building my character.”

Mugdha Chapekar from Kumkum Bhagya puts on her chef’s hat once again

Posted by on PP in

Zee TV’s popular fiction show Kumkum Bhagya has been an audience favourite due to its intriguing plot and the natural portrayal of relatable characters like Abhi (Shabbir Ahluwalia), Pragya (Sriti Jha), Ranbir (Krishna Kaul) and Prachi (Mugdha Chapekar). Post lockdown, the show returned with fresh twists, giving the audience something exciting to look forward to. In fact, after several new entries into the show and a few intriguing turns, Ranbir and Prachi’s wedding drama kept the audience hooked. Krishna and Mugdha have been constantly shooting since the show returned on air but it seems like in the past few days, Mugdha has been getting some free time and hence has been utilising it to her fullest.

Mugdha Chapekar from Kumkum Bhagya puts on her chef’s hat once again

While the actress adequately spent her lockdown time preparing some lip-smacking dishes, her love for cooking didn’t really die down even after the shoot for Kumkum Bhagya resumed on a full-fledged scale. Prachi a.k.a Mugdha Chapekar has once again put on her chef’s hat and has been experimenting with new cuisines in her free time. In fact, she has been taking online lessons to learn and experiment with a few new cuisines.

As Mugdha Chapekar revealed, "I love trying new cuisines and it was during the lockdown that I realised my love for cooking.  After I began shooting for Kumkum Bhagya, I didn't get much time to cook. However, in the last few days I got some time off and hence started to learn how to prepare Mediterranean food. I have always been fascinated by their cuisine and personally love gorging on Hummus, Pita Bread, Falafel, and so on. Hence, I have been learning how to make them in my free time. I will be making it soon and I hope it will be as yummy as the ones they make."

While Mugdha is learning new cuisines, looks like a lot of drama is all set to follow in Prachi's life with a new twist that will be brought about by Rhea (Pooja Banerjee).

"I called him Shammi chacha," Asha Parekh recalls her first and most favourite co-star Shammi Kapoor on his birth anniversary

Posted by on PP in

In her hey-hey-ho-ho days, Asha Parekh worked with all the top actors of the era. “But Shammi Kapoor was my favourite. He was everybody’s favourite. When he came into a project, he brought with himself a universe of creativity and not just as an actor. Shammi chacha, that’s what I called him from Day 1, was not only an actor; he was also a terrific filmmaker and musician. Like his elder brother Raj Kapoor Saab, Shammi chacha had a very keen ear for music. A lot of the music we heard in his films was Shammi Chacha’s tunes,” says Asha Parekh who started her career as leading lady with Shammi Kapoor in Dil Deke Dekho in 1959.

I called him Shammi chacha, Asha Parekh recalls her first and most favourite co-star Shammi Kapoor on his birth anniversary

Apparently, Shammi Kapoor wanted Waheeda Rehman to co-star with him in Dil Dekhe Dekho. “I have no idea about this. Waheeda is a very close friend. But we’ve never discussed this. We don’t talk cinema when we meet. Dil Deke Dekho was special. It was my first film as a leading lady. I had earlier done films as a child. It was also the film that gave Shammi Chacha his new image as the Rebel Star, the Indian Elvis Presley. People just went crazy over him. They also liked our pairing. We then went on to do Teesri Manzil which was one of the biggest hits of both Shammi Chacha and my career,” recalls the evergreen actress.

Teesri Manzil was to star Dev Anand and not Shammi Kapoor. But, producer Nasir Hussain had a tiff with Dev Anand. Recalls Asha Parekh, “I think Shammi chacha wanted Shankar-Jaikishan to do the music. Nasir saab was keen to give RD Burman a chance. Shammi chacha heard RD’s songs and readily agreed. Our songs in Teesri Manzil like ‘O Mere Sona Re’, ‘O Haseena Zulfon Wali’ and ‘Aaja Aaja’ are hummed to this day. The solo ‘Tumne Mujhe Dekha’ by Rafi saab was very special. It was filmed after shooting was stopped when Shammi chacha’s wife Geeta Bali suddenly passed away. We resumed with this subdued song. I remember we were all moist-eyed while shooting this song.” Asha Parekh recalls a third film with Shammi Kapoor very fondly.

Pagla Kahin Ka directed by Shakti Samanta is a favourite of mine. Shammi chacha played a man who has a nervous breakdown after his girlfriend ditches him. I played the doctor who heals him. We had an amazing song in the film ‘Tum Mujhe’ . Indeed, it’s impossible to forget what Shammi chacha meant to Hindi cinema. He had his own style, his own rhythm in the songs that he danced to on screen and in the way he led his life.”

Dear Bollywood, just a defamation case won't work; time to boycott these toxic news channels completely; HIT THEM WHERE IT HURTS!

Posted by on PP in

Monday October 13, started on a bumpy note for most Mumbaikars as the city suffered a power outage like never before. As electricity was slowly restored in all parts of Mumbai, there came another jolt that took the whole country by surprise. It came to light that 34 Bollywood producers and 3 film associations have come together and have moved the Delhi High Court against two news channels – Times Now and Republic – for spreading hate and toxicity against the film industry.

Dear Bollywood, just a defamation case won't work; time to boycott these toxic news channels completely; HIT THEM WHERE IT HURTS!

This move was unexpected as the hate campaign against Bollywood has been going on since the untimely demise of Sushant Singh Rajput on June 14. According to the reports, the viewership of news channels had nosedived in May. There was nothing new for news channels to showcase apart from the Coronavirus crisis and therefore viewers were bored. The demise of Sushant and the anger amongst people was seen as a godsend by these channels. While all channels milked it in their own way, Times Now and Republic probably went quite far in making baseless allegations and tried to brainwash people into believing that Bollywood remained the most evil place on earth. On top of it, most of the celebrities chose to keep mum. A lot of experts and analysts requested them to speak up and voice their protest. But they didn’t. The belief was that these celebs thought it was just a passing phase. But it wasn’t.

As a result, the #BollywoodStrikesBack campaign is a great development and the need of the hour. And yet, one can’t help but ask – is this enough or is it a case of too little, too late? Will a defamation-sort of a case pay dividends? Unfortunately, there are not many examples where such cases have led to any sort of logical conclusion or a conviction. Even if these channels are asked to fall in line, there’s no guarantee they will give up on their vicious and acidic agenda. They might still continue tarnishing Bollywood, albeit in a milder way. On top of that, they can knock at the doors of the Supreme Court and this way, the case can get taarikh per taarikh.

Dear Bollywood, just a defamation case won't work; time to boycott these toxic news channels completely; HIT THEM WHERE IT HURTS!

Hence, the need is to take a step which is immediate and which can have a deeper and prolonged impact. Times Now is run by the Times group which also owns The Times of India, Bombay Times, Radio Mirchi etc. The Bollywood celebs pay crores of rupees so that the Times Group can publish their articles and photographs in supplements like Bombay Times. According to an estimate by industry insiders, this way, Bollywood [individual celebrities and production houses] pays crores to the Times Group every year. According to a grapevine, a top superstar annually pays around Rs. 10 crores while another upcoming actor who has seen success recently shells out Rs. 5 crore to the group for their respective promotions. One female debutant had doled out a huge Rs. 1 crore when she was launched a couple of years ago. And the reputation of these film stars was damaged in the last few months by the same group whom they paid so generously.

Therefore, it’ll seem awkward if Bollywood sues Times Now on one hand and on the other hand, it continues to patronise and pay them. The celebs ideally should pull out of these medianet deals completely. Also, they should stop giving interviews to their sister publications or news channels. Bollywood should also look for alternative touchpoints which can be used for promotions. This would send out a message that Bollywood can survive without these channels but the vice versa is not going to be possible.

And Bollywood need not look far off for inspiration. The day these producers filed the case, another ‘breaking news’ that came in was that Bajaj and Parle, two of the biggest companies in India, have decided not to advertise on news channels that ‘broadcast toxic content’. These companies have already shown the way by taking the right step and Bollywood can follow suit.

Dear Bollywood, just a defamation case won't work; time to boycott these toxic news channels completely; HIT THEM WHERE IT HURTS!

Our stars love awards and Filmfare Awards is considered the ‘Oscars’ of Bollywood. The stars should have the guts to boycott these awards completely as well. These award ceremonies get eyeballs thanks to the presence of the stars and in their absence, the award shows will fail to get viewership and sponsorship. Forget viewership, it might not even take place if the actors won’t walk the red carpet! Such ‘hit-them-where-it-hurts’ steps can bring these networks to its senses more than the court cases!

Still, this is a great beginning. It seems that the industry finally had its ‘aata majhi satakli’ moment! Just as it happens in our films when the hero seems down and out and that’s when he hits back and finishes the villain, similarly our Bollywood personalities have done the same! What’s also pleasantly surprising is how so many production houses and entities came together for a common cause. This has rarely happened in our industry.

Here’s hoping that Bollywood gets more and more people/banners in this movement and also decides to stop all association with these toxic channels until they promise to behave responsibly in future. For far too long, our stars and producers have been threatened and scared with boycott campaigns on social media. Here’s the time to turn the tables and show that even the Bollywood fraternity can play the boycott game very well and bring irresponsible people and entities to its knees!

All that Bollywood needs now is to walk the talk…

Sandeepa Dhar looks beautiful as Maharashtrian bride in Zee5's MumBhai

Posted by on PP in

Sandeepa Dhar will be seen slipping into a Maharashtrian character for the first time in Zee5's upcoming show, MumBhai. As the trailer of MumBhai released recently, we got an insight into the look of Sandeepa's character Vaishnavi as she dons the Maharashtrian avatar. From sporting the typical Mangalsutra to adapting to the mannerisms, Sandeepa is seen perfectly absorbing the essence of her character.

Sandeepa Dhar looks beautiful as Maharashtrian bride in Zee5's MumBhai

Soaking into the depths of her character, Sandeepa Dhar resembled the perfect Maharashtrian bride with the headpiece, along with the nose pin which is called a nath. With a chandrakor bindi and statement jewellery, Sandeepa Dhar was also seen wearing the traditional wedding saree, known as shaalu, catering to the minute details of her character.

The actress who hails from North India has been living in Mumbai and is familiar with the Maharashtrian culture. However, for her character, she not only had to be fluent in her diction and adapt to the mannerisms but also study the way of living in the 90s and 2000s. Therefore, in order to ace her part, Sandeepa learnt Marathi and studied the lifestyle of Mumbaikars in that era.

I do not understand this obsession."

Kriti was asked what rumour she would like to start about Pulkit and she seemed a little baffled.

Finally, when asked what makes Pulkit a marriage material, Pulkit interrupted saying, "First ask whether he is a marriage material or not". Responding to the question honestly, Kriti said, "That is a decision we will make in the future. I do not mind losing the hamper . I don't want to give the wrong answer. We are not there yet.”

Young Sammy recited and danced on the title track of the show for her mommy and asked everyone to watch the show starting from 20th October @ 7:30 PM.

Juhi took to social media to share Samairra's adorable video and we have to say it is very heartwarming. The Hamariwali Good News actress also mentioned, "She surprises me, amazes me and loves me in the most amazing ways! It is indeed the most heartfelt ‘welcome back on screen’ I could’ve ever gotten and that too from my daughter Sammy through her little performance to the title track of Hamari Wali Good News!"


While Samairra is damn kicked about the premiere, how excited are you for Juhi Parmar's return to Television with Hamariwali Good News?

Shah Rukh Khan looks stunning as he sports a new look in the recently released KKR fan anthem

With social distancing norms in place this IPL, the enthusiasm, energy and support of the fans is being missed immensely. The fan anthem is a celebration of the bond that the KKR team and its fans have shared over the years. The catch phrase of the anthem, ‘LAPHAO’ in Bengali means to JUMP and signifies the cheering of the fans especially in their absence.

The KKR fan anthem was announced today, during a fun virtual chat between the KKR players, and Mr. Khan in the presence of the fans. The anthem was then launched by the fans themselves on social media. Thousands of KKR fans turned up for the virtual event to launch the anthem and cheer for KKR.


Commenting on the Fan anthem, Shah Rukh Khan, Co-Owner KKR, says, “I have been attending the matches and I truly miss the energy of our toofani fans! Since we have to show our love to each other thoda door se this year, we created a fan anthem that captures the emotions of all our fans aptly and was even launched by them today. It was great fun to interact with the team today and we hope to keep making our fans proud”.

Commenting on the launch of the fan anthem, Eoin Morgan, KKR captain, said, “It was heart-warming to see so many KKR fans turn up for the virtual event and launch the fan anthem. The fans have been sorely missed and their support is irreplaceable. The KKR fan anthem is our way of honouring our fans while capturing their sentiments. We want to convey our love to the fans across the country in a special way and this anthem is dedicated to them, for the KKR team they truly are “Tu Fan Nahi Toofan Hai”.

Additionally, fans could purchase a limited edition KKR jersey, personally signed by Shah Rukh Khan, the proceeds from the sale will go towards providing smart devices for marginalised young people to support digital learning, in partnership with Meer Foundation and Magic Bus. The smart devices will ensure youth don’t face the risk of missing out on employability training and livelihood opportunities.

The initiative gave the KKR fans an opportunity to raise funds for a project that bridges the digital divide with smart devices. Thus, providing economic stability to not just 1600 youth but also to their families, resulting in an indirect outreach of around 8000 people.

Anaita said that she took up the role of Sheena for a paid holiday to Europe as she was broke at that time. "I was in college when Adi and Karan asked me to help them cast my college friends to play Raj and Simrin’s friends in the film. This was my introduction to the film industry- a world I knew nothing about at the time. In the process they convinced me into playing Sheena. I did it for a laugh and a paid holiday to Europe with my bestie, which was a really big deal for a broke student," she wrote.

I was in college when Adi and Karan asked me to help them cast my college friends to play Raj and Simrin’s friends in the film. This was my introduction to the film industry- a world I knew nothing about at the time. In the process they convinced me into playing Sheena. I did it for a laugh and a paid holiday to Europe with my bestie, which was a really big deal for a broke student. I remember reaching Saanen, a small town in Switzerland , fresh off the bus ( ok plane) and seeing Shahrukh in his black suit on a little bridge ...and for me I felt that he was there only for me! I’m sure whoever saw him on that bridge felt the same way - that’s why he’s Shahrukh. Kajol was just Kajol - real, instinctive, full of love (and still gives the tightest hugs ever). You have to remember that these were times when they were no entourages, no managers and mobiles, no social media...film making was much simpler, but extremely passionate. Once we were there, we were cut off from the rest of the world for over a month. We would all live together, eat together, sing together, dance together... we become a real family, under the warm gaze of a legend like Yash uncle (Yash Chopra). Adi knew DDLJ from his core, and strove for nothing less than perfection. We all hung out and helped each other in ways only close knit friends and families do. Never having any acting ambitions( thankfully), I’m so glad that I was part of this brilliant film and that I can still call everyone that I worked with a friend. I’m so happy to have been a tiny part of this massive legacy. #DDLJ25 #25yearsofDDLJ @yrf #adityachopra

Radhika has also worked in films of different languages, in Hindi, Marathi, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Bengali, and English. After gaining massive popularity in Indian cinema for working in films of different languages, the actress is now treading internationally.

A Call to Spy is on the cards for Radhika and that is an accolade we're all really proud of her for achieving. Not only that, the director previously had also shared how Radhika was the first choice for the role. Radhika will be essaying the role of real-life figure, Noor Inayat Khan, a woman who was a spy tasked by the British government to undermine Nazi operations in occupied France.

This very role adds up to the list of languages Radhika has worked in. She has a keen eye for content and It is just fascinating how the actress gets opportunities performs par excellence in each of them to prove her worth.  Radhika is an absolute delight to watch on screen. She reads through the skin of her character and so an unexplored language doesn't come in her way of good acting.

After seeing her successful performance in Raat Akeli Hai, we cannot wait to see Radhika portray Noor Inayat Khan in A Call to Spy with finesse.

Here’s how Nushrratt Bharuccha aced the Haryanvi accent for Chhalaang

Posted by on PP in

Actors always go the extra mile to justify the needs of their on-screen characters and deliver their best. Talent powerhouse, Nushrratt Bharuccha who is all geared up for her upcoming movie Chhalaang will be seen as a teacher from Haryana. Despite being from Mumbai, the actress worked really hard to ace the Haryanvi accent and turned out to be a total winner.

Here’s how Nushrratt Bharuccha aced the Haryanvi accent for Chhalaang

Talking about her preparations, Nushrratt reveals, "Everybody else in the film already knew Haryanvi - either they were from there or they had lived there, so everybody had caught hold of that accent. I was the only person who was a full born and brought up Mumbai. I had no clue how to even begin to approach the Haryanvi accent let alone acing it, so I wouldn’t know how to work on myself and I just didn't want myself to be out of line because of that. I wanted to give it my best."

On asking how Rajkummar Rao helped her with it, Nushrratt further reveals, "Raj not only helped me with my Haryanvi accent during the shots, he was the person who took my first workshop in the Haryanvi accent coaching. Before a coach came on board, I went and did readings with Raj where he has not just taught me the accent, but even helped me get the mannerisms right. So it was him who coached me first and then I had a diction teacher who was on set and he did everything for me.”

Chhalaang would be the first time, the audience will see Nusshrrat in a totally different avatar. With a glimpse of her look in the trailer, Nushrratt rightfully compliments to her character ‘Neelu’. The viewers are totally in awe of her look and are eagerly waiting to see how her character pans out in the film.  Apart from Chhalaang, Nushrratt will next be seen in Hurdang, opposite Sunny Kaushal and Vijay Verma.

Vikram Kochhar says Pagla Ghoda shows how patriarchy affects both genders in different ways

Posted by on PP in

Zee Theatre is bringing Badal Sarkar’s seminal play Pagla Ghoda to a new generation of audiences. Playing an important role in the teleplay is actor Vikram Kochhar who has extensively explored theatre, been seen on television and in films like Manmarziyan, Kesari and Angry Indian Goddesses. What drew him to Pagla Ghoda was its timelessness and he says, “I am an NSD graduate so am aware of the span of Badal Sarkar’s work as one of the most celebrated playwrights. Why he is considered as one the greats is because of his radical reimagining of society in an open format. Through his plays, he exposes the restrictive constructs of society and then argues that we should deconstruct them and understand every issue from the larger perspective of humanity.”

Vikram Kochhar says Pagla Ghoda shows how patriarchy affects both genders in different ways

Pagla Ghoda offers a similar, thought-provoking narrative about four men who have failed in love because of patriarchal norms. Adds Vikram, “The play shows how patriarchy affects both genders in different ways. And how cumulatively, it damages society as well in a very strong manner. Every construct be of religion and philosophy unless questioned stagnates and so unless we critique the negative aspects of social norms, we cannot build a better society. That is what Badal Sarkar’s work does. Like all good art, it seeks to change society for the better. Good art has the power to change minds and the world and that is why I chose to work in Pagla Ghoda.”

The teleplay is directed by Bikas Ranjan Mishra and stars Vikram Kochhar, Chitrangada Chakraborty, Anshuman Jha, Gopal Singh and Ravi Khanvilkar.

Tanishk Bagchi’s 'Naach Meri Rani' featuring Nora Fatehi and Guru Randhawa is out now

Posted by on PP in

Tanishk Bagchi made use of his time at home during the lockdown in a rather productive way. He had been working round the clock composing music and writing songs. One such track that he worked on is a dance number that released earlier today and is already making the right noise.

Tanishk Bagchi’s 'Naach Meri Rani' featuring Nora Fatehi and Guru Randhawa is out

The track titled 'Naach Meri Rani' is composed and penned by Tanishk. Guru Randhawa and Nikhita Gandhi have lent their vocals to the peppy and upbeat club number. Produced under the label of Bhushan Kumar's T-Series, the music video features Guru and Nora Fatehi.

Naach Meri Rani marks Tanishk’s fourth collaboration with Nora. The duo have previously collaborated for chartbusters such as Dilbar, Ek Toh Kum Zindagani and O Saki O Saki, all of which went to become popular party anthems. Dilbar took the internet by a storm soon after its release, earning the record of becoming the first Indian song to reach number three on the Billboard YouTube Music Chart.

What also makes this song special is it brings the composer-singer duo Tanishk and Guru together for the second time after the highly popular Morni Banke from Badhaai Ho. Set in a futuristic world, Nora plays a robot that comes to life. Their electrifying chemistry and moves, choreographed by Bosco Martis, is capturing a lot of attention.

Sharing his excitement about the new song, musician Tanishk says, “Naach Meri Rani happened during the lock down. I wanted a new combination of Nora and Guru. This is my second song with Guru and I always wanted to work with him on a dance track. The song has a futuristic vibe to it and I have made use of a lot of Indian sounds in it, especially with the dholak beats. Both Guru and Nikhita have done a wonderful job and the onscreen jodi of Guru and Nora make the song look very sleek and interesting. I would like to sincerely thank Bhushan Kumar to helping me giving a shape to my song.”
