Dibakar Banerjee is known for creating looks for his characters that stand out incredibly and become the talking point. The director is presenting Parineeti Chopra in an all-new, never-seen-before avatar. Parineeti, who is riding high with the blockbuster of the year, ‘Golmaal Again’, is seen as a fierce, ambitious girl from the corporate world. Parineeti is known for her versatility, having boldly experimented with content right from her first film and it looks like she is pushing the envelope again with ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’.

Parineeti says, “I’m playing a fiercely ambitious girl from the corporate world. She is based in Delhi and she is extremely clear about what she wants from life. She is the perfect example of how you would describe a girl who has a single-point-focus about her career. She is the heroine of a Dibakar Banerjee film. She will have her quirk, she will stand out for her qualities and intentions. I have never played a character like this and I’m extremely excited that Dibakar is presenting me in an avatar that no one has ever seen me in.”

With both of his upcoming films featuring Parineeti Chopra as co-star, Arjun Kapoor quipped he is prepared to handle the link-up rumours with the actor.

Arjun, who debuted opposite Parineeti in “Ishaqzaade”, is reteaming with her on two projects – “Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar” and “Namastey Canada”.

“We are working in two films. First in ‘Sandeep aur Pinky Faraar’ and then, whether you’re satisfied or not, we will come together in ‘Namestey Canada’ as well. So next year, I am going to be linked-up only with Parineeti because I would be working only with her,” Arjun joked.

The actor was speaking on the sidelines of the launch of new Audi 5 range here last night.

Directed by Dibakar Banerjee, “Sandeep Aur…” is a story of two people who represent two completely different groups of Indians.

Arjun said he is busy preparing for the film and is spending time with the director to understand his character better.

“I am neck-deep in the prep for the film. I was in Delhi for a bit, I’ve been travelling with him, getting into the skin of the character. The film has a realistic texture so I had to spend time connecting with the world the film is set in.

“Dibakar is clear about what he wants. I’ve given same number of days for prep as much I’ve given for the shoot. He wanted that from the beginning.”

Arjun was also asked about his reaction to the posters of “Padmavati”, which stars his friends, Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor.

“Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a fantastic director. Because of him, somewhere we still have ‘big screen’ experience films.

“He is the filmmaker who gives you that scale and look in a film which compels you to go to the theatres. The characters are real yet larger than life,” he said.

The actor said besides Deepika-Ranveer, it will be interesting to watch Shahid in the film.

“I am excited. I know Ranveer and Deepika have a fantastic tuning with Bhansali sir. I am equally excited to watch Shahid in a film. After a long time, we have a two hero film,” he said.

Malaika Arora slayed the red carpet in her Manish Malhotra number, with a velvet corset bodycon mini and a silver floor-length cape featuring intricate embellishments. Messy hair, silver pumps and red lips, completed her party look. She looked every bit the fashion diva that she is and all eyes were on her and her ensemble. However, some people clearly did not have better things to do in life and decided to troll her for her look on social media.

We compiled a list of all the Bollywood celebrities’ transformations you need to know about for the extra push you need to reach your fitness goals. The celebrities have also shared their secret tricks like, did you know that Sidharth Malhotra actually follows a diet according to his blood type? *Mind blown*

1. Arjun Kapoor

To fit in the Bollywood industry Arjun Kapoor had to shed around 52 kilos. The actor still claims that maintaining his weight is a struggle. His secret tool was 20 minutes of a hardcore CrossFit regime.

2. Sonam Kapoor

It is hard to imagine Sonam Kapoor as a chubby teen but check out this picture for proof.

She prepared herself in every aspect for her debut in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Saawariya’. She didn’t only adopt weight training in her regime but also included extreme Kathak training. This resulted in her losing 30 kilos.

3. Hrithik Roshan

It is hard to recall Mr. Roshan without his famous abs and super drool-worthy, we mean toned, body. He has always maintained his bod but for his role as Ethan Mascarenhas in the movie ‘Guzaarish’ he had to gain weight. “I ate loads of fried stuff such as samosas, batata vada after 15 years and put on weight. I got a 36 inch waist for the first time in my life,” said Hrithik to ‘India Today’. He lost all the extra weight immediately for his superhero duties as Krish.

4. Alia Bhatt

Alia Bhatt was never fat, to begin with, but to fit (pun intended) in the role of a college diva in ‘Student Of The Year’, she lost 16 kilos. She lost all this weight in three months with extensive weight training along with Kathak and Ballet classes.

5. Kareena Kapoor

This transformation sure shocked the entire Bollywood and introduced us to the concept of size-zero figure. One of the biggest reasons being that Kareena Kapoor was infamously always the chubby actress. Her tools for the transformation shocked people more; balanced diet and power yoga. She still endorses staying healthy if not skinny.

6. Parineeti Chopra

Go watch Dishoom guys!! @varundvn killing it with the amazing @thejohnabraham and @jacquelinef143 !! #dishoom #jaanemanaah

A post shared by Parineeti Chopra (@parineetichopra) on Jul 30, 2016 at 1:53am PDT

This photo broke the internet as Parineeti perfectly managed to hide from the Paparazzi during her extreme transformation. She didn’t merely emerge out as a skinnier person but also as a better human. She played a part in a lot of social causes after her return. The biggest struggle for her was to quit junk food. The reason why we love her is that she is an open book and does not mind sharing even her deepest insecurities.

BEFORE .. All my life, I have struggled with how I look, how I feel, and how people looked at me. I was constantly made fun of, but the person I was, I generously laughed with them. Today, many people ask me what triggered the weight loss, did I give in to the “bollywood pressure”? To that I say – thank god I became an actor and had that pressure! I am able to achieve what I couldn’t achieve otherwise. I feel more confident, I feel at peace, and I feel proud! Girls and women meet me all around the world, at airports, events, on the street; they hold my hand, hug me, and tell me their struggles and how I changed their lives. They show me their wallpapers, their wallets, and its all pictures of me!! They look at those pictures and want to make that change in their own lives. They look at my Built That Way campaign and have stuck it to their walls. I have seen women tear up and tell me I changed their life. Post delivery weight, teenage obesity, they are fighting it, and I am their inspiration. As an actor, There is no bigger achievement for me. I am glad to be a part of your life in this way. So thank you everyone. Thank You for making me feel loved. Like I always say – if I could do it. So can you. And I am always there for all of you …. Lots of love….

7. Sonakshi Sinha

Sonakshi Sinha was a chubby youngster and had to slim down to act opposite Salman Khan in ‘Dabangg’ since she weighed 90 kilos. She credits cardio, swimming, yoga and a proper diet for her transformation.

Row, row, row your boat… gently down the week! 👊ðŸ?¼ #mondaymotivation #sonaisfit #gymtime

8. Adnan Sami

@iHrithik what about this transformation.. =D 🙂 #Adnansami..

— MD. Mashrur Pial (@MashrurPial) July 31, 2014

It wasn’t as much an option for this famous Bollywood singer as was a serious warning by doctors. The final push was when his father gave him an ultimatum to prioritize his health above all. He took a break and dedicated an entire year to getting healthier. He lost 156 kilos and we are happy to know that he feels healthier now.

9. Farhan Akhtar

We couldn’t have imagined Farhan Akhtar playing the role of an athlete. It was anything but easy, his training included 6 hours intensive weight training and obviously, he paid utmost attention to jogging and perfecting his run. For this one especially, we won’t give you the weight comparison of before and after because it was never the goal of the team who worked with Farhan to train him. When the training was completed, he was left with 5% body fat. If that isn’t goals we honestly don’t know what is.

10. Aamir Khan

How could the article be complete without the shape-shifter himself? Aamir Khan lost 22 kilos for ‘Dangal’. This isn’t the first time he had a complete body transformation. In 2008, he built the body of a Greek god for his role in ‘Ghajini’. The next year he worked to look like an engineer for ‘3 Idiots’.

There is no dearth of reality shows in India, yet every other day a new show is introduced that blows our minds away and gives us another reason to stay hooked to our TV sets. The latest one to join this bandwagon is ‘Lip Sing Battle’, which will mark the comeback of Bollywood director, producer, and choreographer Farah Khan, on the small screen. Even before its premiere, the show has been making quite some headlines. Earlier, Farah Khan posted a picture of actor Shah Rukh Khan giving him a surprise visit on the sets, which escalated our excitement to a pinnacle.  

Some surprises are so emotional @iamsrk thank u for bringing such positive energy on our set of #lipsingbattle

While, Parineeti stunned us with her Raja Babu avatar, actress Preity Zinta too wasn’t far behind in rocking the show with her sass. She posted a short video of her making her way to the shoot and we are falling in love with her all over again.

The show is the Indian version of ‘Lip Sync Battle’ and will see our beloved celebrities fighting each other and lip syncing to the Bollywood songs. This is a first of its kind reality show and it will be interesting to see the celebrities battle each other in this ultimate Bollywood face off ever. In fact, Farah reportedly even invited the makers of the Ameircan version ‘Lip Sync Battle’ on the first day of Hindi version’s shoot.

Neha Dhupia’s show ‘No Filter Neha’ is one of the most talked about shows in recent times, as celebs literally talk ‘without a filter’. The recent one to go ‘unfiltered’ was Parineeti Chopra. Parineeti Chopra’s revelation can make anyone guffaw. 

In an interview with Neha Dhupia, Parineeti Chopra shared a funny conversation she had with her ‘bff’ and tennis sensation, Sania Mirza. “You know that’s how we became friends because she in some interview said ‘I  would like Parineeti to play me in my biopic’ and I remember she was  playing the US Open and she called me from there in the middle of the night at 2-3’o clock in the morning. She called me and said ‘Hi this is Sania  Mirza, she said ‘I just wanna say that you know I have given an interview  yesterday and it’s all over the country and its all on front pages and I  felt it was my responsibility to tell you , why it all happened’  and I said  ya but that’s really sweet of you like to say that. She said, ‘You look  like me and you know we all are blessed in the chest area and I think you  will look most like me’ and I said ‘oh thanks buddy’ and we have been  friends ever since and she tells me I’m the only actor she is friends with you know.”

Now, that is some revelation!

55398779After making a successful singing debut with “Maana ke hum yaar nahi” earlier this year, actress Parineeti Chopra is now set to record another song.

The actress is busy shooting for Rohit Shetty’s “Golmaal Again”. Asked if she has sung in the upcoming film, she told select media, including IANS, here: “No. I haven’t sung. I’m trying to butter up Rohit sir to let me sing one small thing. I’m going to release a second song soon though. I’m working on it. It’s going to be a good one.”

“The first song did really well. So, I want to take this forward. I’m yet to record it,” she added.

The actress, who has starred in Yash Raj Films projects like “Ishaqzaade”, “Shuddh Desi Romance” and “Daawat-e-Ishq”, said with “Golmaal Again” — the fourth part in the “Golmaal” series — she has joined the big league.

“I don’t think anybody in this country has not seen ‘Golmaal’. My dad knows every character by heart. I think he was the most excited when I signed ‘Golmaal’ because he is the ‘massy’ audience. For me, it was an honour to sign the film because it was literally like joining the big league,” she said.

“Being Rohit Shetty’s (director) heroine, actor Ajay Devgn’s heroine…it was a big deal for me. The movies that I have done were with boys mostly of my age. It was like stepping up into the big game. So obviously, I felt proud of myself because I earned that,” she added.

“Golmaal” is one the biggest films of the year, she said.

“It is one of the most expensive and biggest franchises. I don’t think any film has reached four. Abroad we have. ‘Dhoom’ has reached three and so has ‘Housefull’. ‘Golmaal’ has the biggest director and cast so, obviously it’s like joining the big league and I’m very happy to be a part of this gang,” she said about the team, which also consists of actors Shreyas Talpade, Tusshar Kapoor, Arshad Warsi and Kunal Kemmu.

“I have a very important role in the film. I’m not just the heroine in the film. So, it was like the best of everything,” she added.
And now, she is happy to be a part of the family.

“First few days I was scared of Ajay and Rohit sir. They are like a family and have amazing tuning. It was like entering a new class and wondering ‘Will they like me or not?’ Ajay is like a kid, especially when he does songs. He doesn’t enjoy dancing so, he would complain. But he would work hard also.

“I call him (Ajay) my box office India. He gives me all the ‘gupshup’ (gossip) on the industry. I always message or call him to know about any new film. I can plan my life according to his information. It’s always correct. He is my trade guru,” she said.

Any ragging on the film’s set?

“I was told ‘You have to be prepared for pranks during ‘Golmaal’ shooting’. There is time, money spent on pranks. It’s a separate department. I have been at the receiving end,” she said.

Recalling one of those moments, she said: “One day, Rohit sir seriously came to me and told me to do some funny movement. I asked him ‘Really? But the character is not like that’. Nevertheless, I agreed and did it. The whole team laughed at me. I was so embarrassed.”
It’s not just her. Even Shreyas fell prey to pranks.

“The other day, we were doing a photoshoot. There were some crackers on set. Shreyas and I were talking. Ajay sir came from behind. He told me to shut up and sit. I was talking to Shreyas. The next thing you know, firecrackers bursting behind Shreyas’s back. Shreyas jumped out of his seat. It was crazy,” she said.

Would she still like to be a part of “Golmaal 5”?
“Of course, if Rohit sir is making ‘Golmaal’ or any other film. I think working with him has been the best experience of my life. Even if I am a tree, I will do that role in his film. I can never say no to him. He has become such an important part of my life,” she said.

Our favourite Deepika Padukone will be seen sharing screen space with handsome hunk Shahid Kapoor. Also, Shraddha Kapoor will be seen with Desi Punjabi Munda, Arjun Kapoor in Half Girlfriend. People are eager to see Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon together in Raabta, and we totally get their excitement. Bollywood is getting bold and better, the casting directors are going out of their comfort zone and are bringing together new jodis. 

2017 just doesn’t have some great movies releasing this year but we also get to see some fresh, lead pairs who are all ready to set the silver screen on fire with their sizzling chemistry. Take a look at our list and tell us who you think will add oodles of love and lust and who will bring some gravitas to their films with their acting skills.

Deepika and Shahid Kapoor:

AF! When two of the steamiest stunners are all set come on screen together for the first time, magic will definitely happen. There is no denying that casting them together for ‘Padmavati’ was Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s best decision yet. Imagining the duo being all lovey-dovey with each other will surely cast a spell on viewers.  Ranveer-Deepika-Bhansali are exceptional together but Shahid joining this gang has definitely raised our expectations. The film is a historical drama where Deepika plays the titular role, while Shahid will be seen playing Raja Rattan Singh (Padmavati’s husband) and Ranveer as Alauddin Khiliji.

And, everyone can be a part of their love story in their upcoming film ‘Meri Pyaari Bindu’. Come May 12, fans will get to see their easy breezy romance, come to life on the big screen. 

Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez:

Jacqueline Fernandez may have played Sidharth Malhotra’s sister-in-law in the film ‘Brothers’, but now the two are set to steam up the screen in the ‘Bang Bang’ sequel ‘Reloaded’. We got to see their effortless camaraderie on the couch with Karan. And we can only wait to see how their equation plays up in the film that is scheduled to hit theatres later this year. 

Ranbir Kapoor & Alia Bhatt:
