Trishala Dutt harbours acting aspirations, but dad Sanjay Dutt is against it. The star daughter, who is based in New York, recently shared a snapshot on Instagram and wrote, “Cardio seven days a week.”

A social media celebrity in her own right, Trishala’s sexy snapshot in a sheer top went viral. Does she still want to give Bollywood a shot? If only Papa Dukes (as she fondly calls Dutt) would relent.

What is the first image that pops into your mind when you think about Hugh Jackman? Chances are that your mind will immediately show you a picture of him in his iconic Wolverine claw-bearing pose.

Iconic Roles Played By Hugh Jackman That Are Not 'Wolverine'© Comic Book

Yes, this one.

The man, who by the way turns 48 today, spent most of his career playing this role for the last 17 years. It was in 2000 when Jackman was roped in to play the iconic role of Wolverine in ‘X-Men’ and the rest as they say is history. But since all good things have to come to an end some day or the other, in 2017, with the release of ‘Logan’, Jackman bid goodbye to this legendary character.

Even though Wolverine has been the most widely-recognized role he has played in his entire career as an actor, it definitely isn’t the only good one. From rom-coms to thrillers, the actor has played a number of diverse characters.

1. Robert Angier in ‘The Prestige’

Jackman stars as illusionist Robert Angier in the legendary Christopher Nolan movie which follows the rivalry between two magicians in the 19th century and honestly, his performance here is one of his best. Obsessed with securing an upper hand over his rival Alfred Borden (played by Christian Bale), Angier goes to great lengths in this story of twists and turns. You’d love him and hate him at the same time in this masterpiece.

2. Tom Creo in ‘The Fountain’

The movie revolves around three story lines, each separated by five centuries. Tom Creo (Hugh Jackman) is on a quest for immortality and to save his wife Izzi (Rachel Weisz). He plays three different characters connected by a common aim and he does it with real conviction and moving intensity. This movie is the biggest proof of the actor’s ability to blend into different personas.

3. Peter Lyman in ‘Scoop’

The film is a quick-paced murder mystery and revolves around the story of an American journalism student in London who scoops a big story, and begins an affair with an aristocrat as the incident unfurls.

Jackman plays the part of the British aristocrat Peter Lyman, who has political ambitions but is also suspected of being a serial killer. This one is a little less intense as compared to his other roles but his charm and melting smile makes this movie more memorable.

4. Leopold Mountbatten in ‘Kate and Leopold’

If you have only seen him as the fierce Wolverine till now, this one will come across as a fresh surprise. It’s a romantic-comedy fantasy that tells the story of a duke who travels through time from New York in 1876 to the present and falls in love with a woman in modern New York.

Although the plot seems to be a clichéd one, Jackman as the Duke is an utter delight as he proves that he can be funny and can impress in this genre too.

5. Drover in ‘Australia’

Tied around true events which took place in the 19th century, Jackman plays the role of Drover as he helps a woman (played by Nicole Kidman) who travels to Darwin (Australia) in order to save the cattle ranch she inherited. Both Kidman and Jackman gave noteworthy performances and believable on-screen chemistry. Hugh pulled off a character that was seemingly very tough; channeling the rugged cattle driver beautifully.

6. Keller Dover in ‘Prisoners’

Jackman plays the role of a father who faces a parent’s worst nightmare when his 6-year-old daughter, Anna, and her friend go missing. Although the police catch the kidnapper, he is eventually released due to lack of evidence. That is when Jackman takes the matter into his own hands and delivers a chilling performance in this thriller. He layers his character with plenty of emotions—affection, empathy, grief and desperation. And it won’t be wrong to say that this was one of the best performances of his career and some even consider it Oscar-worthy.

7. Jean Valjean in ‘Les Miserables’

‘Les Miserables’ is an epic musical drama film based on the musical of the same name which is in turn based on the 1862 French novel by Victor Hugo.

Set in France during the early 19th century, it tells the story of Jean Valjean, an ex-convict who, inspired by a kindly bishop, decides to turn his life around. He eventually becomes mayor of a local town and owner of its factory but is always alert to the risk of being captured again.

However, the film received a lukewarm response at the box office but Jackman’s acting is purely magnetic. Singing “live” (rather than performing to a pre-recorded track), he’ll leave you stunned.

8. Bronson Peary in ‘Eddie the Eagle’

Although we don’t see Hugh as the center of the film in this one, he does play a pretty significant part. The movie follows the life of British Ski-jumper Eddie Edwards and Hugh plays the role of unconventional and alcoholic coach to Eddie. His unconventional ways to help the protagonist to overcome his hurdles makes it an endearing watch and we get to see a different and warmer side of him.

On Thursday night, pictures of Ranbir Kapoor and ‘Raees’ actress Mahira Khan smoking outside a restaurant in New York went viral on social media. In no time, the pictures broke the internet. The actress faced a lot of criticism for her choice of clothes and smoking, further questioning her dignity. She was wearing a white backless dress, whereas Ranbir Kapoor was seen sporting a grey t-shirt with military green pants and smoking. In one of the photos, Pakistani actress Mahira was also spotted with a love bite on her back, while smoking with Ranbir.

Many Bollywood celebrities like Varun Dhawan, Parineeti Chopra, and others have come out in support of Mahira Khan, who was slut-shamed. The latest actress to defend Mahira is Taapsee Pannu. Talking about this distasteful act, the ‘Pink’ actress told Mumbai Mirror, “Today, anyone with a cell phone is paparazzi and it’s difficult for celebs to have a normal life. On one hand we are criticised for having security and getting special access but when we try to live like normal beings in another country, pictures like these are clicked and leaked. Such people need to get a life!”

Taapsee, too, was recently called out for sporting a bikini in her upcoming picture ‘Judwaa 2’, wherein she shut the attackers with a solid response. She also spoke about this to the publication. The talented actress said, “This kind of social media shaming is like a hidden clause that you sign up for if you’re a public figure. To be honest I was expecting it from the so-called ‘flagbearers of nationality and morality’ and fortunately it happened on a good day. Usually, I don’t reply to these hate tweets because I don’t want these guys to get unnecessary attention but on that particular day, I woke up on the right side of the bed and had a funny answer to their tweet.

My sister, Shagun, was also ready to reply with her bikini picture but before that, the man deleted his tweet.” For the uninitiated, rumours of Ranbir Kapoor dating Pakistani actress Mahira Khan started doing the rounds in early July, when they both walked the red carpet of the Global Teacher Prize Ceremony together in Dubai.

The first part of the movie, which came in 2014 was a hit and fans loved Keanu. Chad Stahleski, the director threw some light about expanding the thriller series. “We want, not so much to go bigger on the third one, but to show you more of the intricacies of the world… I feel like there are all these different subtleties that I skipped over in Number Two, that I’d like to go back to on [chapter three] and show you the inner workings of different parts of New York. So rather than massive set pieces, I’d like to show you cooler and more intricate ones. I like telling stories from my one character’s perspective. Once you put that aside with the TV show, [you can] expand to all the different characters and follow them throughout their journey.”

He also explained how the original intention was to make just one movie. The idea of converting it into a whole series was not a part of the original plan.

 

It’s the success of the first part that prompted the makers to make a second one later.

 

If you are a fan of the series or you have been missing Keanu in action, then you have an official waiting period that begins now.
