With Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, Namastey England and Panipat, Arjun Kapoor will be seen straddling diverse genres of romantic thriller, romantic comedy and period drama. Now, the actor has given his nod to Raj Kumar Gupta’s next, India’s Most Wanted. The thriller is said to be inspired by a secret mission that was conducted between 2012 and 2014 to capture one of the country’s most dreaded terrorists.

Arjun Kapoor, who plays an intelligence officer, tells mid-day, “The film revolves around an event that transpired recently, but not a lot of people know about it. My character is straight out of a real-life incident. It intrigues me to play such a role.” The youngster believes that it will be exciting to collaborate with the Raid director who belongs to the school of gritty cinema. “He was the first director to call me after watching Ishaqzaade [2012]. He said he was looking forward to working with me some day. When he narrated the script of India’s Most Wanted to me, I felt proud of my motherland and its unsung heroes.”

To be shot between Nepal and Delhi in a start-to-finish schedule in July, the movie is slated to hit screens in May 2019. Gupta says, “I am looking forward to my collaboration with Arjun and producers Fox Star. He is a sincere actor and the best choice for the role.”

Speaking to mid-day after the Anand Karaj ceremony last morning, makeup artist Namrata Soni gushed, “Isn’t she the most beautiful bride ever? We went with little eyeliner, keeping the focus on eyes and soft red-tinted lips. The antique headpiece was her idea. We combined it with a basic bun, decorated with mogras.”

Sonam Kapoor was certain she would wear red on her wedding day. A source from Vakil’s team revealed, “Sonam was in discussion with Anuradha for many months. The golden lotus motifs were also a collaborative decision. We ran a few designs by her and she picked this one.”

A guest at the ceremony said, “The traditional Sikh wedding comprised four laava pheras around the Guru Granth Sahib, the holy book of the Sikhs. The wedding vows were followed by lunch. The highlight of the lunch was when Ranveer and Arjun sang Masakalli [Delhi 6] on stage. Anand and Sonam couldn’t stop laughing at their antics.” Within minutes of her wedding, she changed her user name on social media accounts to Sonam Kapoor-Ahuja.

Arjun Kapoor could reprise the character played by Nivin Pauly in the original

Arjun KapoorArjun Kapoor

The coming-of-age romantic Malayalam film Premam (2015) is being remade in Hindi. Arjun Kapoor has emerged as the top contender to reprise the character played by Nivin Pauly in the original.

Though the makers have not made any announcement, those in the know say Arjun is gung-ho about the film, which traces the love life of a person from adolescence to old age. Arjun is also said to be part of the Hindi version of the Telugu film Arjun Reddy (2017). Is he the go-to actor for South remakes?

Arjun has been filming for his next Namaste England in which he reunites with Ishaqzaade co-star Parineeti Chopra. They will also share the screen in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar. The release of Namaste England, directed by Vipul Amrutlal Shah, has been preponed for October 19 during the Dussehra weekend. The sequel to 2007’s hit Namastey London was scheduled to be released in December.

Owing to the smooth shooting schedule, the makers have decided to release the movie earlier to the planned date, a press release said. The team of Namaste England has been filming in never-seen-before locations of Punjab. They recently wrapped up their last shooting schedule. The film traces the journey of two young individuals from Punjab to England.

Two weeks ago, Arjun Kapoor came to his half-sister Jahnvi Kapoor’s defence when an online portal splashed her unflattering photographs in an offensive way. Arjun retweeted a news portal’s post about Janhvi sporting a “sexy dress” as she reached Arjun’s home. She was seen sporting a white cotton dress with a low back. His post read, “You know what, f**k you man, f**k you as a website for highlighting or bringing it to anyone’s attention and it is shameful that your eye would go searching for something like this. Shame on you… This is how our country looks at young women. Yet another shining example. Ashamed by this (sic).”

Jeetendra talks exclusively to midday after the sad demise of veteran actress Sridevi

JeetendraJeetendra

I first met Sridevi at the 100th day jubilee function of one of her Tamil films. I walked up to this bright-eyed girl and congratulated her on her performance. Little did I know that we would be working together in a few months’ time.

I was going through a low phase after Deedar-E-Yaar (1982) – the film suffered heavy losses, and brought me back to square one as an actor and producer. Sridevi, too, was coming out of Solva Saawan (1979), her debut film as a full-fledged heroine in Bollywood. The film didn’t fare well and almost put her out of the Hindi film industry. So Himmatwala, directed by K Raghavendra Rao, was a turning point for both of us.

We all know how it changed both our fortunes. Not many know that Rekha was the original choice for Himmatwala. But I guess Sridevi was destined to do the film – she bagged the role and the film became one of the biggest grossers of the year. And with it, Bollywood woke up to the magic of Sridevi.

Today [February 25] marked the 35th anniversary of the film’s release and it’s tragic how she passed away just a day before… I was terribly shocked when I heard about her demise.

Sridevi was one of my closest co-stars and we did 15 movies together. She was an actor par excellence. What was even more admirable about her was her dedication to the craft – she would keep rehearsing a scene until she was fully satisfied with it. I had deep admiration for her discipline towards her work.

I remember I used to be nervous whenever I would have to dance with Sridevi. She was a fabulous dancer who would get the steps perfectly, right at the first attempt while I had to keep doing rehearsals to match up to her.

I have so many beautiful memories of Sridevi. It’s still so difficult for me to come to terms with the fact that the woman, who ruled over everyone’s hearts with her shy smile and bright eyes, is no more.

[Jeetendra was Sridevi’s co-star in 15 films, with hits including Himmatwala, Tohfa, Majaal and Ghar Sansaar]

As Parineeti Chopra reunites with Arjun Kapoor for Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, she opens up on her easy equation with co-star

Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra

Parineeti Chopra is as excited about reuniting with her Ishaqzaade (2012) co-star Arjun Kapoor as fans of the duo are. Days after her look as the no-nonsense corporate woman from the upcoming romantic thriller, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, was unveiled, Chopra says she’s looking forward to romancing Kapoor’s “sexy” police officer. “Arjun and I go back a long way. I am very protective of him. We share this great equation where we can be brutally honest, and yet incredibly offensive with each other. This comes from the fact that we are fond of one another,” says Chopra, who also holds discussions on “love and life” with the actor.

As filmmaker Dibakar Banerjee would have it, Chopra divulges little about the film before the trailer’s release. But, she is willing to describe her character as one who is “fiercely ambitious”. “She is focused on her career. Her clarity defines her, which is inspiring. The characters [Kapoor and Chopra’s] belong to different spectrums of life. They are inadvertently brought together. The film chronicles the story of a man and woman who can’t stand each other, but can’t survive without one another either.” Recently, Chopra was busy filming for a venture when she suddenly found herself becoming the butt of jokes on social media.

Filmmaker Karan Johar had tweeted a picture of Akshay Kumar in character from the upcoming historical, Kesari, while welcoming Chopra aboard the project. Twitterati did not miss musing on his snafu, editing images of Chopra on Kumar’s face in a bid to poke fun at the director. But Chopra is far from baffled with the reaction. “Frankly, it was silly. Karan was doing the right thing by sharing an image from the film to announce the female actor. Social media has ceased to surprise me anymore. I consider it my daily dose of entertainment.” But talk of her collaboration with Kumar, who has in the recent past, backed contextually strong ventures, lights up her face. “Akshay is gifted and talented. I have a lot to learn from him,” she said. Meanwhile, the brand ambassador of Tourism Australia is looking forward to her next trip Down Under. “There are places that I have visited where people make their soaps and perfumes. I want to bring such elements to the forefront and promote that culture.”

Arjun Kapoor had shed kilos before entering the film industry with Ishaqzaade (2012). While he exercises to maintain his weight, he often indulges in cheat meals.

“If you eat whatever you want for a full day, it takes you at least four days to get out of that rut. I save my cheat meals for the food I have at my dadi’s home,” says Kapoor, who is often trolled for his physique. He says, “Even the fittest person in the world will be trolled.”
