Deepika Padukone on depression – “One morning when I woke up and I felt all was well, I fainted”

Posted by on PP in

A day ago, Deepika Padukone received World Economic Forum's prestigious 26th Annual Crystal Award for her extraordinary contribution towards the cause of mental health. The actress has been vocal about her suffering from depression and started Live Love Laugh foundation for those who are seeking help for their mental illnesses.

Deepika Padukone on depression – “One morning when I woke up and I felt all was well, I fainted”

On Tuesday, Deepika Padukone had a conversation on mental health with WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. He praised her on Twitter and wrote, “Delighted to discuss #mentalhealth with @deepikapadukone at #wef20. Your openness and vulnerability are helping others to seek help and helping to break down stigma. @WHO look forward to working closely with you. There is no health without mental health. #LetsTalk.”

At WEF 2020 in Davos, Deepika Padukone revealed that she used to lie whenever asked how she was doing. Recalling the time when she was diagnosed with clinical depression, the actress revealed, “Mental illness happened to me when I had least expected it. I was at a professional high, my movies were doing great and I was in an amazing relationship. Everything was going just perfect. One morning when I woke up and I felt all was well, I fainted. Luckily the house help came and saw me on the floor. I was taken to a doctor and I was told it was nothing and probably just some blood pressure fluctuation or something like physical tiredness. Those were the first physical signs. For a long time, I just felt like sleeping, not going out, not meeting people.”

“Luckily, my mother had come to my place and when my parents were packing, I just started crying. She asked me what was it and I had no answer. At that time, my mother told me that I probably needed professional help and that’s how I began consulting a psychiatrist,” she said.

Deepika further revealed that she and her family were skeptical of talking about the issue publicly and letting everyone know about it.  “After I was diagnosed with a clinical depression regarding my mental health, I had to even lie when someone asked me how was I doing. I would say, I’m great, though I was actually terrible,” she said.

“As I began on my path of recovery, I also understood the stigma attached with mental health and the need to go public with it. Imagine what would have happened, if my mother had not said that I should take professional help for my problem. I felt that I should do something to help others with their signs and symptoms and that was the reason for going public with my illness and then setting up the Live Love Laugh Foundation,” Deepika further said.

Deepika further encouraged people to seek help. The actress said, “Are you feeling sadness and a low for a long period of time? You need to understand sadness is transient and depression is for a long period of time. It is very important to share with somebody around you about how you are feeling. It is also important that the people around you don’t dismiss it as attention-seeking or some small thing. It is important for caregivers to encourage people to seek help.”

She went onto add that in India, parents are not comfortable in conversations about mental illness. But, slowly it is changing too. “At times, it is other way round too when parents want to take, but children do not want to seek medical help or consultation. I want every person experiencing mental illnesses to know that you are not alone - because there are no obvious physical symptoms. You feel like you are the only one going through this and it comes with a lot of guilt,” she said.

On the work front, after Chhapaak, Deepika Padukone will be next seen in ‘83 alongside Ranveer Singh. Also, soon will start shooting for Shakun Batra’s directorial.

Deepika Padukone’s presence at JNU took the discussion on bigger level, says Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub

Posted by on PP in

Deepika Padukone, who was recently seen in Chhapaak which was her first production, decided to visit Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) two days ahead of her film’s release where the students were attacked by masked mob for protesting against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). Deepika’s visit had mixed reactions while some praised her for standing up for students while some said it was a promotion gimmick and started #BoycottChhapaak trending on social media.

Deepika Padukone’s presence at JNU took the discussion on bigger level, says Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub

Raees actor Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub has also been at the forefront while standing in solidarity with students and opposing CAA. He said that when he visited Jamia Milia University, people told him that his visit gave them confidence and that they knew they were doing something right. He said that if his visit made the people feel this way, Deepika Padukone’s visit to JNU impacted the people on a bigger level. He said that it took the discussion further and even those privileged that chose not to speak, were looking into the issue. He said he does not know whether her visit impacted the box office collections of Chhapaak but said that maybe the intension wasn’t to make money but to talk tell someone’s story.

While many bigwigs have chosen not to speak up on CAA issue, Ayyub said that those who have stayed silent know that they are privileged and have chosen to stay mum on the issue due to money, fame or their religious beliefs. He said that if somebody wants to enjoy their privilege, they have the right to do so.

On the work front, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayub was last seen in Anubhav Sinha’s Article 15 that had Ayushmann Khurana in the lead role.

Talking about choreographing Saif Ali Khan and Alaya F for the song, Mudassar said, “Originally, when I was told that they want 'Ole Ole' again in this film with Saif sir I was so nervous. The first day when I was shooting with him for 'Gallan Kardi' he made me so comfortable. Even Alaya is very respectful, promising, humble and professional. She followed the choreography quite well. I was very happy to receive a message from Saif sir that he liked both the songs and I cannot wait for the film to release.”

Halsey says why she resonated with BTS rapper Suga to collaborate with him on her album Manic

Posted by on PP in

American singer Halsey (Ashely Frangipane) began her new year with the release of her third studio album, ‘Manic’. It was easily one of the most awaited albums of the year. The 25-year-old singer's album is very personal as she talks about relationships, personal struggles and not being angry anymore. The album has many collaborations including interludes from Alanis, Dominic Fike, and South Korean group BTS rapper Suga (real name Min Yoongi).

Halsey says why she resonated with BTS rapper Suga to collaborate with him on her album Manic

During an interview with Zane Lowe for Apple Music's Beats 1 Radio, Halsey explained why she decided to collaborate with Suga on this album. For unversed, the rapper's verses are in Korean. Halsey, who featured on BTS’ record-breaking song 'Boy With Luv' in 2019, explained that people would have expected her to collaborate with the leader of the group RM since they are close friends but she resonated with Suga's mixtape 'Agust D' and was moved by his lyricism.

She said, "I started exploring their solo music a little bit more, and with Suga, I got into 'Agust D', which is his solo project, and I was looking up lyric translations and I was blown away. I was like, 'This stuff is so introspective'. The content is about mental health and his inner turmoil, and he's a really quiet guy in real life, and I was just moved."

Halsey said that his music is introspective. She added, "RM, Namjoon and I, we're really good friends and you know, there are some of the other guys who have singing voices that are kind of similar to mine, that are airy and a little softer. And it's like, Suga probably was the last member of BTS that anyone would have expected me to collaborate with. He's the one whose lyrical approach I felt the most connected to. I knew I had to have him be a part of this record. I knew that he would get what it feels like to be manic, to be introspective."

This ain't the first time Halsey has praised Suga's work. After she released her tracklist and Suga's Interlude was out, during her Instagram live, she said, "Yoongi’s like really introspective & really intelligent perspective on where we are & what we’re doing with our really unique lifestyles.”

During one of the live chats with fans, Suga also revealed that he was surprised when Halsey approached him for a collaboration. "It was really fun to write,” he said. “I was like, ‘Why me? I’m not good at English. She said it was okay, and she asked me to do it in Korean. I wanted to thank Halsey for that, but I couldn’t when we met in the United States, because I’m not good at English.”

He further said, “That song was one that I’d written a while ago. I wrote the beat maybe the year before last. I gave her the beat that I’d written then, and we worked on it. It was originally more upbeat. As it was being arranged, it became more minimalistic.”

'Manic' album released on January 17, 2020, whereas BTS, that consists of seven members RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook, is currently gearing up for their comeback album 'Map Of The Soul: 7' due for February 21, 2020 release.

Rhea took to Instagram to share two photos of them wherein they are seen enjoying each other's company blissfully. "Happy birthday to the most beautiful "supermassive black hole" that is known to mankind ! Shine on you crazy diamond," she wrote. A supermassive black hole isn't a usual compliment that you give your beau. But creative enough! "Thank youuuuuuu my Rockstarrrr," Sushant soon replied. Check out the post below.

Don't you also think that this makes their relationship kind of official?

Last year, in an interview, Sushant was quizzed whether he was indeed dating Rhea. He chose to dodge the question, saying he could not allow himself to answer this question.

Workwise, the actor will be next seen in Mukesh Chhabra's Dil Bechara alongside debutant Sanjana Sanghi. The film was earlier titled as Kizie aur Manny, and is the remake of Hollywood flick The Fault In Our Stars.

4) Brilliant performances by the child actors

A dark comedy full of heart, here are 5 reasons why you must watch the Oscar nominated film Jojo Rabbit

While all the hype about the characters at the moment surrounds the talented Taika Waititi and Scarlett Johansson, we can’t wait to see what the terrific trio of child actors - Roman Griffin Davis (Jojo), Thomasin McKenzie (Elsa Korr, the Jewish girl) and Archie Yates (Yorki, Jojo's best friend) have in store. What’s more, with the film being shown entirely from a child’s perspective, Jogo Rabbit scores high on youth and zest.

As a Maori Jew, Waititi is far from the most likely candidate to play the Nazi leader. With an unconventional portrayal of Hitler, one who’s jovial and understanding, he certainly did catch everyone by surprise as audiences were expecting a stern and strict version of the German leader.

With these fantastic five reasons, we’re pretty sure that you certainly don’t want to miss a single minute of the upcoming 6 Oscar-nominated film. Catch Jojo Rabbit in theatres near you on January 31, 2020.

Umang 2020: When Shah Rukh Khan tried to woo Krushna Abhishek in the filmiest way possible!

Posted by on PP in

Sunday night was a glittery one as some of the biggest names of Bollywood came under one roof for Mumbai Police's annual celebration, Umang 2020. From Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif to youngsters Janhvi Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan, Kartik Aaryan and Varun Dhawan, the celebrities created quite a storm. And the highlight of the evening was certainly SRK's winning performance.

Umang 2020: When Shah Rukh Khan tried to woo Krushna Abhishek in the filmiest way possible!

The superstar performed to his Zero track ‘Mera Naam Tu’ but that's not all. He engaged in a fun banter with host Krushna Abhishek too. In a video surfacing on social media, he hilariously recreates his Rab ne Bana Di Jodi dialogue. "Tumhari aankho ko dekh kar lagta hai, tumhari naak ko chho kar mehsoos hota hai, tumhare hotho ko haath laga ke malum padta hai, sirf ek hi baat dil me aati hai ‘tujh me mard dikhta hai hai, yaara main kya karu," he says, moving a finger over Krushna's face. That left the audience in splits!

Only Shah Rukh can bring such timely humour! Watch the video below.

Others including Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra were also present at the event.

Bigg Boss 13: Sidharth Shukla slams Shehnaaz Gill, asks her to stay away

Posted by on PP in

Bad news for #SidNaaz fans! The couple you all were rooting for might not become a reality. Sidharth Shukla and Shehnaaz Gill's bitter-sweet banters were enjoyed by the audience, despite those violent fights that left us baffled. However, as a latest development, Siddharth does not want to talk to Shehnaaz anymore!

Bigg Boss 13: Siddharth Shukla slams Shehnaaz Gill, asks her to stay away

In the last episode, the two were seen having food separately. Not sure what triggered Sidharth, but he also told Shehnaaz that he wasn't willing to share his bed with her anymore. Shehnaaz didn't agree, but Sidharth said he is not comfortable to share his bed with her anymore.

Shehnaaz, also wondering what went wrong, kept pestering Sidharth, who then reacted. He said he overlooked Shehnaaz's antics, thinking that she was childish. “I don’t like people like you. You are not kiddish and I am not going to tolerate you anymore. What you are doing is not good and you will have problem,” he is heard saying.

This of course doesn't go down well with Shenaaz, who slams back at Siddharth and says he can't move out of a relationship just like that. "You are good. I am bad. Please stay away from me," Sidharth retorts.

We don't know what happened, but with just a month to go before Bigg Boss 13 ends, one can't say whether they're going to reconcile!

20 Years Of Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani: When Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla, Aziz Mirza took turns CRYING and consoling each other over the film’s box office performance

Posted by on PP in

Bashing or ripping apart a film is something that we do without giving second thoughts, especially when that film doesn't meet our expectations. We, naturally, don't realise that the hard work of more than hundred people constitute that film and that producers can become overnight paupers when their product becomes a flop. Even if that is not the case, the loss of reputation, trolling and also a little bit of financial drain can prove detrimental.

20 Years Of Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani: When Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla, Aziz Mirza took turns CRYING and consoling each other over the film’s box office performance

Exactly 20 years before, Shah Rukh Khan presented his first film as a producer, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, on this very day. The songs are remembered even today but as for the film, it failed to entice audiences. This resulted in a poor performance at the box office. While people know that it didn't work, not many are aware the behind the scenes madness and tragedy that unfolded.

Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani is the story of two ruthless and ambitious journalists, working for rival news channels. They could go to any lengths to achieve their end but things change when they fall for each other and get a reality check about the politics around. The film was loved for the performances, the songs of course, and the message. However, it got slammed for lack of impact and for trying to fit in too much. Also, it was a time when people were not quite aware of manipulative media and how they were used by politicians for selfish gains. A small section of moviegoers hence felt that this film was too ahead of its times. It was directed by Aziz Mirza and Juhi Chawla featured opposite SRK. The trio shared a great relationship as they worked together in Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman and Yes Boss.

20 Years of Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani: When Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla, Aziz Mirza took turns CRYING over the film’s box office performance

Anupama Chopra in the book 'King Of Bollywood: Shah Rukh Khan and the Seductive World of Indian Cinema' shares how the film got made. She mentions Aziz Mirza wanted to make a film with SRK but he did not want to exploit their friendship by paying him less. He hence suggested the actor that he should take a percentage in profits. Shah Rukh Khan however insisted that they should turn producers. Juhi Chawla too came on board and agreed that having their own production house will give them creative freedom. Also, the market then was booming. Not just theatrical but even music, satellite and overseas markets was adding to the moolah. And with Ajay Devgn and Aamir Khan also turning producer at the same time, SRK felt that the timing was just right. He, Juhi and Aziz also zeroed in on a name: Dreams. At SRK's suggestion, it was spelled as Dreamz which ultimately got called as Dreamz Unlimited.

20 Years of Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani: When Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla, Aziz Mirza took turns CRYING over the film’s box office performance

In no time, a four level building was acquired, comprising of swanky offices. They had big dreams or should we say dreamz, especially Shah Rukh, but no practical knowledge or experience of running a production house. But they had friends and the goodwill of the industry that came to their rescue. Juhi's husband Jai Mehta helped them in registering Dreamz Unlimited. Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra, till then, had made just one film, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, respectively. Both starred Shah Rukh Khan and both the films were blockbusters. They came on board as consultants. Karan Johar's father Yash handled production and was apprenticed by Juhi's brother Sanjiv. Reputed cinematographer Santosh Sivan and famous choreographer and Shah Rukh Khan's bestie Farah Khan were also roped in.

Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra weren't sure about the film's plot. They feared that Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani doesn't have commercial value. This was a time when Sooraj Barjatya was making Hum Saath-Saath Hain, a modern day spin to Ramayana. They argued that such a story can be understood by anyone, including Shah Rukh Khan's wife Gauri's grandmother, who was then in Mumbai. Would she get the 'commercialization of the media' bit that their film is based on, is what they reasoned.

Shah Rukh, Juhi and Aziz Mirza however still went ahead. Aziz and Juhi preferred to be cautious spenders but Shah Rukh went all out. The budget was set at Rs. 15 crores, a steep figure for the time. Even the premiere was a grand affair and was attended by veteran stalwarts like Dilip Kumar, Rekha and Jaya Bachchan. The after party was held at the now defunct nightclub called Fire & Ice. An article in The Indian Express article states that while Shah Rukh Khan was busy dancing with his pregnant wife Gauri and Juhi Chawla was saying hello to every guest, Aziz Mirza was left alone to bear the brunt of irate viewers who saw the film at the premiere!

Shah Rukh Khan soon realised that Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani hadn't been liked. He realised this first when Gauri Khan's uncle Tejinder Tiwari refused to take his calls. He was SRK's in-house box office pundit who loved discussing with the superstar the film's merits and box office potential. But after this film, he went underground. When Gauri met him and asked him why he was avoiding Shah Rukh, he replied, "What can I tell him? The movie is not good." The critics tore apart the film too and mentioned many unsavoury stuff.

20 Years of Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani: When Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla, Aziz Mirza took turns CRYING over the film’s box office performance

Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani had a decent opening, of around Rs. 91 lakhs. Those days, opening didn’t matter much and how the film grew and sustained was the question. The week one ended at Rs. 5.08 crores, which was also fine, considering that films like Dhadkan, Kurukshetra, Hadh Kar Di Aapne, Pukar and 2000's biggest hit Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai, which collected more than Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, didn’t earn this much in Week 1. But the film slipped from here and ended its run with Rs. 10.75 crores.

The trio however still hadn't lost hope. In an attempt to salvage the film, they requested their contacts in the media to write positively about the film. One night, they sat in the office till 3 am drafting a letter to the then Delhi Chief Minister, the late Sheila Dikshit, asking for a tax exemption for Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani. They hoped it'll reduce ticket prices and perhaps bring more viewers. Juhi recalled that SRK smoked and typed using his typical “confuse-or-convince logic” to plead their case but it proved futile.

For a month after the release, Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla and Aziz Mirza would meet daily in the first floor conference room and go through the box office reports. Their hopes that the film would eventually pick up were dashed. Anupama Chopra writes that they took turns crying and consoling each other and there were days when all of them were reduced to tears. Aziz Mirza especially felt very bad as the other two were like his own children and also because he had nurtured them professionally and personally.

Many parties were involved with the film and they obviously lost money. "Payments that had been promised never came in," says Anupama. She also reveals that one distributor suggested that Shah Rukh compensate for his financial loss by dancing at his friend's wedding.

Meanwhile, just a week before Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai hit theatres and it became an unexpected blockbuster. It was the debut vehicle of Hrithik Roshan who overnight became a star with envious fan following. This young actor was pitted against Shah Rukh Khan. Also, SRK criticised the media after the release of the film and that further motivated them to hail Hrithik and bring down Shah Rukh. Gauri Khan's mother Savita was disturbed by these reports. Gauri hit back at her husband's critics by appearing on the cover on a woman's magazine, Savvy. She said in an interview to this magazine, "The reason people are pulling you down is because they are fed up with your success. But ultimately, your fate and future cannot be determined by the press. People who are writing all this are non-achievers compared to Shah Rukh."

20 Years of Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani: When Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla, Aziz Mirza took turns CRYING over the film’s box office performance

As for SRK, he became uncharacteristically quiet and tried to internalize his anger and disappointment. He took solace by asking his son, who was three at that time, "Who's the best?". Aryan would reply, "Papa, you are the best" and this would comfort him a bit. Also, Shah Rukh Khan had seen flops before and knew this was a passing phase. He also wasn't in a denial mode. He admitted in an interview, "We failed. Perhaps we can rationalize a bit by saying that the film was ahead of its time or the issue wasn't universal, but maybe it was just a rank bad film. We aren't so stupid that we can't accept that."

Dreamz Unlimited didn't have a long journey. The trio then made an unconventional historical, Asoka, directed by Santosh Sivan. Yet again, the film failed to impress audiences and flopped at the box office. Finally, they decided to play safe and made Chalte Chalte. This romantic drama was directed by Aziz Mirza and co-starred Rani Mukerji. Fortunately this time, it was a box office hit. However it created a discord between the partners. Juhi, who then was about to become a mother, felt she was being disregarded as an actor. She hence decided to step back.

Dreamz Unlimited then never made a film again. Shah Rukh has said few times that the day he, Juhi Chawla and Aziz Mirza got excited by an idea, they'll regroup. Sadly, that didn't happen. SRK then floated his own production house, Red Chillies Entertainment, in the same office. It exists even today.

Posted by on PP in

After the family week in the Bigg Boss house, Shehnaaz Gill's father Santok Gill blamed Himanshi Khurana for destroying her daughter's career and said that any person in her situation would have committed suicide. Now, singer Himanshi Khurana has responded to the allegations made by Shehnaaz's father in an interview with a daily. She said that she is sorry if his daughter tried to commit suicide because of her but also said that it was Shehnaaz who started the controversy and then started feeling disturbed. Himanshi said that Shehnaaz in one of her interviews in Canada revealed that she got work because of the controversy.

Bigg Boss 13: Himanshi Khurana responds to Shehnaaz Gill’s father’s allegations of destroying Shehnaaz’s career

After Shehnaaz Gill's father visited her in the house, he spoke to a daily about Himanshi destroying Shehnaaz's career. He said that after the fight between Shehnaaz and Himanshi, whenever Shehnaaz got work, Himanshi would call up the directors and producers and fill their ears against his daughter. Gill said that his daughter did not give up and started singing and got popular at that. He said that if it was someone else in Shehnaaz's place, they would have committed suicide.

Shehnaaz and Himanshi's tussle started even before they entered the Bigg Boss house. It started when Shehnaaz criticised Himanshi's single I Like It. Himanshi also alleged that Shehnaaz offended her by passing derogatory remarks about her parents. On the other hand, Shehnaaz Gill alleged that Himanshi passed comments about her "character" after she reviewed her song.

Meet Kartik Aaryan as Veer and Raghu in Imtiaz Ali's Love Aaj Kal

Posted by on PP in

Love Aaj Kal, Imtiaz Ali’s much-anticipated romance starring Kartik Aaryan and Sara Ali Khan in the lead, presents a contemporary and relatable portrayal of two stories- one set in Udaipur in the early 90s and the other in modern-day Delhi, as they interact to learn (or perhaps unlearn!) from each other the different facets of love, commitment and relationships.

Meet Kartik Aaryan as Veer and Raghu in Imtiaz Ali's Love Aaj Kal

Kartik Aaryan plays the lead actor in both the stories. He is Raghuvendra or Raghu as everyone calls him, in the earlier story set in the 1990s in the picturesque town of Udaipur filled with inimitable old-world charm. There is small town innocence in this character that makes him extremely endearing. Like many of us who grew up in the late 1980s - early 90s he is fascinated by Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak and the idea of first love with his High School sweetheart Leena (played by debutante Arushi Sharma). In a performance that rakes up the nostalgia of that era, we see Kartik get into the skin of the character as his romance with Leena blossoms and together they explore the excitement of first love complete with movie outings and High School socials.

In the other story set in modern times, Kartik plays Veer, a software programmer in his mid-twenties living in Delhi. Amidst all the noise of social media and modern-day living, he exhibits a rare calm. He is an idealist who looks for a certain honesty and meaning in his relationships. A romantic at heart, Veer is a bit socially awkward and inarticulate in expressing his emotions, a trait that makes him extremely endearing in his relationship with Zoe (played by Sara Ali Khan).

According to Kartik, "The two roles were very distinct, in the way they look, react and relate to people around them. Veer is a modern guy, somewhat geeky and socially awkward. He is sure of what he wants and that also sets him apart from the people around him. On the other hand, Raghu represents any teenage boy who has grown up in the 90s. Both Raghu and Veer are different when in love. Raghu is dramatic and animated as he goes through the excitement and thrill of first love with his high school crush Leena, in the picturesque town of Udaipur. Veer is sure of what he feels for Zoe but too inarticulate to express it to her. Therefore understanding Raghu and Veer required not only getting into their individual character’s skin but also an understanding of the time period where their stories are set."

Talking about both these characters, Imtiaz said, " Veer is an idealist, a loner, a geek. He is a software programmer by profession. He is socially awkward, very clear in his mind though looking confused at all times. He reads quotations from the backs of trucks and coasters at bars and sets the principles of his life. Raghuvendra Shekhawat or Raghu lives in Udaipur in the 90s. He is extremely passionate and romantic. He is impulsive but very strong. While portraying Veer and Raghu, I did not compare one with the other. When Kartik played Veer, he was not thinking about Raghu and vice versa. There is innocence, passion and impractical idealism in both characters but in different ways, so we concentrated on one character at a time. While training we worked a lot on the body language of both the characters so that he walks, talks and behaves differently while portraying them. Kartik played both the parts with great energy and even the unit felt like they were working with two different actors while shooting with Veer or Raghu!"

"The rites are over.. to ashes they have been reduced.. a crowded hall in the home filled with the close-knitted relatives and dear friends, embrace break down, hold hands, hold...and the silence of condolence gradually creeps in...polite conversation, of reminisce, of association, of happy times spent together, of the fight and struggle for the ailment for years.. and most of all the loneliness of them that are left behind." he wrote.

Posted by on PP in

With just a few days to go before Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor's Street Dancer 3D hits the screens, the actors are presently on a promotional spree, and the film has already made lot of noise. Credit goes to both Varun and Shraddha, whose reel-life flamboyant friendship reflects on the big screen as well.

Street Dancer 3D: Shraddha Kapoor reveals her three hilarious nick-names

The two recently sat down with Bollywood Hungama for a fun-game, and we asked Shraddha to mention three of her nick-names. She came up with an amusingly hilarious answer indeed.  "Chimdi, Rani, Shraddhs," she said. Shradds is a cool short form of Shraddha, so we get it. Rani is cute also. Chimdi, we're quite sure, is a name given by her friends. That's what friends are for, after all!

Watch the video below to know more.

Street Dancer 3D, directed by Remo D'Souza, features Varun as Sahej, a passionate dancer, and Shraddha as Inayat, a dancer from Pakistan. The film revolves around the rivalry between two groups of dancers. If you followed the previous parts of ABCD franchise, you do know that it gets really intense! The film also features Prabhudheva in an interesting role. It is slated to release on 24th January, 2020.

Shah Rukh Khan's meeting with Amazon founder-CEO Jeff Bezos went quite interesting. In the American Entrepreneur's honour, Amazon Prime Videos hosted a star-studded evening and we saw Jeff indulging in a heart to heart conversation with SRK, and Zoya Akhtar. Combine Jeff's wisdom and SRK's humour, and you have a fun evening!

Looks like everyone is in hangover of that evening. Jeff took to Twitter to share a video of the three chatting and wrote, "Lots of fun on stage with @iamsrk and Zoya Akhtar”. SRK was prompt to respond. "Missing your uninhibited laughter and candid conversation," he wrote.

For everyone who doesn't know, the most epic moment of that evening was when SRK decided to mouth a dialogue from his film Don, and made Jeff repeat after him. The internet was left in splits when they said, 'Jeff Ko Pakadna Mushkil Hi Nahi, Namumkin Hai".

We also wonder if this hints at a possible association between the superstar and Amazon Prime.

Meanwhile, we hear SRK and Kajol are ready reunite on the big screen once more, and will be seen in a Rajkumar Hirani film soon!

Sara Ali Khan STALKS this actor on social media, and it is not Kartik Aaryan!

Posted by on PP in

Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan's Love Aaj Kal is set to release in less than a month, and the trailer recently launched. Sara and Kartik's chemistry, especially the offline one, has been the talk of the town for a long time now. We can't swear by the rumours, but they are quite fond of each other for sure.

Sara Ali Khan STALKS this actor on social media, and it is not Kartik Aaryan!

Hence, when a leading portal asked Sara who she stalked on social media the most, many of us thought she'd name Kartik. But no. Guess whose social media updates she regularly keeps a track of? It's Deepika Padukone! She said she checked a lot of people's profiles, but was really regular at checking Deepika's profile. Sweet!

And well, given the icon that Deepika is, who wouldn't check her profile? Interestingly, the first Love Aaj Kal starred Deepika as the female lead, so Sara has quite a shoe to fill.

Coming back to the film, contrary to reports, the actors say this is a fresh film and is in no way a sequel to the previous one. Directed by Imtiaz Ali, the film releases on 14th February.

Posted by on PP in

South Korean director Bong Joon-ho has been receiving tons of accolades for his film, Parasite. After winning multiple awards, the cast of Parasite finally received the much-needed recognition at the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday. Song Kang-ho, Park So-dam, Choi Woo-shik, Lee Jung-eun, and Lee Sun-kyung took the stage to accept the award along with Cho Yeo-jeong, Chang Hyae-jin, Jung Hyeon-jun, Jung Ziso, and Park Myung-hoon.

"Although the title is Parasite, I think the story is about co-existence and how we can all live together," Song said, via translator Sharon Choi. "I am so honored to receive this award in front of such amazing actors that I admire. I will never forget this beautiful night."

"The film Parasite is a dark comedy, a thriller and a powerful metaphor," Song Kang-ho told the crowd. "It depicts a class struggle taking place, all under one roof, where some aren't even aware that a struggle exists," Park So-dam said while introducing the film to the audience. "We are so honored to be nominated tonight for Cast in a Motion Picture," Choi Woo Shik concluded.

It was a night to remember as while the cast of Parasite was overlooked at all the award show shows including Oscars 2020 where the film received 6 nominations but none for the cast of the film. But, Choi Woo Shik has been receiving tons of appreciation from his industry friends.

Known to be part of Wooga squad, Singer V of mega-famous band BTS, shared two videos on their official Twitter account where he is hanging out with Woo Shik in Los Angeles. Walking down the beautiful streets of LA, V congratulated him on his win. He also shared another video where the two of them were enjoying snacks at a park. BTS is also in LA to begin promotions for Map Of The Soul: 7 album.

The congratulatory message continued from South Korean actors Park Seo Joon and Park Hyung Sik (who is currently serving in the military) and Peakboy. All of them are part of the Wooga squad. Taking to their respective Instagram accounts, they shared photos of Woo Shik to congratulate him.

Posted by on PP in

After the stupendous success of Knives Out, Chris Evans will kick-start the year with Apple TV + thriller series Defending Jacob. Starring alongside Michelle Dockery and Jaeden Martell, the first look of the series is out. The first three episodes will air on April 24 followed by weekly episodes.

Writer and executive producer Mark Bomback recently said that reading the William Landay’s 2012 novel of the same name or googling the plot of the series won't spoil the excitement of the thriller series. Deadline reported, "The truth is, I don’t want to spoil anything myself, other than to say that (reading a plot summary) would not tell you the ultimate plot of the series. You’d get sort of a version of events that would skew somewhat differently by the time you were done.”

As Shilpa put it, he wasn't even born when she appeared in the original song. "Matching his level of energy was out of the world but I enjoyed filming the song,' she said at the show.

Kumar Sanu, who crooned the original track, was recently asked which track of his from the 90's would he like to see remade. He named the above song, and his another famous track ‘Kuch Naa Kaho’, from 1942 A Love Story. There, the first one is done. Let's see when the second one happens!
