New Delhi: Actor Akshay Kumar says that he likes the idea of working with new talent and this is the reason why he has given “maximum” chances to youngsters under his Hari Om Entertainment banner.

“I have given the maximum break to new directors, actors and actresses under my banner,” Akshay told IANS.

The ‘Khiladi’ Kumar, whose espionage action thriller film “Baby”, released Jan 23, has given breaks to actors like Trisha Krishnan and Vinay Virmani through his production company.

“I love to work with new people as I love new ideas,” he said.

Akshay will next be seen in the action drama “Mein Gabbar” alongside Shruti Haasan. He will also be seen in the Bollywood remake of “Warrior”. The film will be released as “Brothers” in India.

Ranbir Kapoor’s Bombay Velvet: Raveena Tandon out of the film
Aamir’s PK in trouble, Delhi High Court issues notice to the makers

New Delhi: Anushka Sharma is on her toes these days with three back to back flicks this year. Recently we all came across her glamorous look in Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Bombay Velvet’ where she looked adorable enough to slay all her fan but in her newly out pic from her maiden production ‘NH10’, Anushka is entirely different from all her previous appearances.

The actress could be seen with blood sheds around her face, which carries a troublesome expression somewhat indicating flick’s gritty and gruesome theme.

Well, this is just a glimpse and if a leading daily is to be believed then the actress unlike Bollywood’s earlier violent dramas, will take the fierce themes to altogether a new level with her look, which will almost be unrecognizable.

Thanks to Romy, a skilled French make-up artist, who has worked in many European film and theatre projects, Anushka’s look will be shockingly terrifying too in many scenes.

In an interview to a leading daily, the director Navdeep Singh was quoted as saying, “It’s a gritty, gory film but thanks to Romy, when you see Anushka lying in a pool of blood, her skin peeling off, you will never guess the amount of prosthetics involved. It’s a new-age thriller and the prosthetics helped to break stereotypes. Anushka is a star but in this film we did not want to glamourise her at all.”

Anushka seems to be keen on experimenting with her appearances in few of her projects. While we told you how she is going to look like in NH10 and Bombay Velvet, her third flick this year, the Zoya Akhtar’s directorial ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ will have her as a dancer.

Last year, the actress played a journalist in blockbuster PK. Surely Sharma doesn’t want to be typecast at such time when Indian cinema is ending the stereotypes and all actors are proving their versatility by accepting different roles.

Well, we wish her all the best!

Mumbai: Post the success of “Hera Pheri” and its sequel “Phir Hera Pheri”, the makers are set to start “Hera Pheri 3” with Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham in the lead. The former says the first movie brought in refreshing and a new kind of comedy for Hindi cinema when it released in 2000.

“I feel ‘Hera Pheri’ was a refreshing new comedy for Hindi cinema. Then Neeraj (Vora) made ‘Hera Pheri 2’, which was even more fun,” Abhishek told reporters here during the official announcement of “Hera Pheri 3”.

The actor considers it a “matter of huge pride” to be part of the movie.

“Hera Pheri 3” will also feature Sunil Shetty and Paresh Rawal, apart from “Dostana” stars Abhishek and John. The film will be produced by Firoz Nadiadwala.

The story of the third instalment will take off from where the second part ended, says director Neeraj Vora.

“Whether we get to see original Raju in the film or not, for that you have to see the film. I can’t reveal the end. The first film was over and the second part starts when they are rich. Now the third part will start with where we left the second movie,” he added.

Veteran actor Paresh says his character Baburao in the film is a very well-written character.

“The character of Baburao was written so well. I believe that in India, there is no actor who can rise above the material. The director and writers of this film, have given me a lot. It’s fun to have commercial success along with fun while working with the character. I am thankful to the writer and producer of this film,” he said.

aishIndian actress and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai has lauded the organisers of the international beauty pageant for removing the swimsuit round from their competition. She says when she won the crown in 1994, she herself didn’t have the “fittest beach body”.

In December 2014, Julia Morley, chairwoman of the Miss World contest, announced their decision about the exclusion of the bikini round, saying that “it doesn’t do anything for the woman. And it doesn’t do anything for any of us”.
Aishwarya has said she was “very happy” to know of the development.

Aishwarya Rai happy at dropping the bikini round at Miss World pageant, says it is not a deciding factor to win the crown.

“When I became Miss Word, I was definitely not the best beach body of all the 87 contestants. I can vouch for it…I can put a stamp on it. And yet I won the title,” said Aishwarya, who was recently felicitated for being the most successful Miss World ever.

“People believe that this (swimwear round) is an imperative round and this becomes the deciding factor. That’s not true,” she added.

The actress also remembers having been told that “getting the ‘Miss Perfect 10? title was not only about literally your physicality, it was all about how you presented yourself, your confidence and so much else that went with it,” she said.

On the film front, Aishwarya is making her comeback to the big screen after almost five years with Sanjay Gupta’s ‘Jazbaa’.

saif-ali-khan_1Saif Ali Khan is presently reading the essay On The Shortness Of Life from Moses Hadas’ The Stoic Philosophy Of Seneca. No wonder he’s celebrating his perfect life’ to the hilt. Apart from being grateful for a gorgeous wife and family, he’s even restored bridges that were once wrecked. Today, he enjoys an easy equation with ex-wife Amrita Singh – children Sara and Ibrahim being their mutual concern. He’s reworked the dynamics of his alleged acrimony with partner Dinesh Vijan only to re-emerge as a producer. What’s more, he’s even made up with dear friend Sajid Khan post Humshakals. And all this he’s achieved with utmost earnestness. As Saif lets you into the truth behind the conjectures, the room is filled with a carefree vibe. Dressed in a crisp white shirt over well-fitted black pants, he looks every bit the royal he is. It wouldn’t be wrong to call him a conversational guru coz heck, he takes on every contention … and answers without pretence. He comes clean on all… frailties, his foibles and even his insensitivity at times… Excerpts:

Most believe that you have it all – a royal lineage and a glamorous life as an actor…(Smiles) It is a perfect life ya. They are right. I’ve nothing to complain about, really. I have a cellar stocked with good wine. A lovely lady at home (Kareena Kapoor Khan). I love my mother (Sharmila Tagore), my sisters (Soha and Saba Ali Khan) and my wonderful children (Sara and Ibrahim). Now even my ex-wife (Amrita Singh) and I are getting along. We are discussing our children’s future.

But you always got along with her, no?Ah… well, at this moment everything is in place.

Was it not in place earlier?There’ve been times when certain elements were not in place. But at this point, everything is just right.

Anything you ever get insecure about?Sometimes I worry about not achieving what I have to. A lot of people are dependent on me today. I’m alright as long as I keep working. But it would be nice to have a fixed income, which is not dependent on the movies.

But you are producing too…Still… I think of myself as an actor. I haven’t made any money producing films. (Laughs) I have made exactly ’20 from producing films.

Is that the reason you split with long time partner, Dinesh Vijan?(Laughs) It sounds like a good reason, no? But we haven’t split. Illuminati Films is a production company I formed to make movies for myself. Somewhere Dinesh has to grow and make films for himself as well. I don’t necessarily want to produce films with other people. So he must do it on his own. I also work for other production houses. He can’t sit around waiting for me to be free and then begin work on something.

So everything was amicably settled between you two then?There was a rough patch in the middle because I’d walk into my office and catch another actor sitting in my cabin. I didn’t know what he was doing there. Apparently, he was working in my production. That led to friction. But we’ve sorted it out. We have Illuminati together and he has his own company to do everything else he wants to do.

Of late, you’ve not had a great run at the movies…When you’re doing well, you get offered different kinds of movies. You believe you’ll be able to do them… Maybe you can’t…

But you’ve never been one to follow the flock.Yes. But when you get offered different stuff, you believe it will be nice to work with different directors. The most epic and most painful flop would be something you believed in.

Is it safe to say Humshakals wasn’t something you believed in?
I didn’t. Now I don’t want to upset Sajid Khan again, who I am fond of.

You patched up with him recently.In a rather public and ridiculous fashion. He was upset with me.

That interview you gave post the film’s release was public too…Yeah, now I don’t want to reverse all the good I’ve done. Usually, I do mean what I say when I say it. I felt the way at that time. I hugged him now because I love him. Our relationship is beyond the movies. I missed him in my life immensely.

Did he feel bad about that interview?Yes, he did. Because he takes these things to heart. There’s a difference in the way we both saw that situation. Perhaps it was a bit insensitive…

But you don’t regret it?No. I felt like that at the time. If it came across like I was abandoning the film, it wasn’t what I meant. All I meant was that in retrospect, we should have done something better and it was a bit of a mistake’ doing this film in this particular way. You know, some actor even told him if I felt that way about the film, I shouldn’t have promoted it. But that’s even more criminal. You have to promote your movie. People talk s*** . Who cares! No one likes anyone in the industry. I actually do like Sajid.

So will you work with him again?This time, I will have to love the script. Last time it was on his conviction. This time, it will be mine.

People said they were disappointed that you did such a film…Sometimes you just back a director’s conviction and go with it. The honest truth is that Sajid meant to entertain. He didn’t mean to insult people. He got flak for it. Poor guy. Maybe he rubs people the wrong way… Plus, once so much negativity is out there, it snowballs into something huge. (Laughs) People look at you like you don’t know a film from a hole in the wall. You get lectures on how to choose your films even from the staff in your office.

Romcoms are your niche. You agree?Yeah. I like the conversational style of acting. So I can offer it as competition to others and say, This is what I do best’. I have a certain spirit and energy, which if used well on screen, can be unique.

Being the romcom king, has your definition of love changed over the years?(Pauses) Now I know that love is verb. It has to be practised. It’s not just a word. You are your actions.

Recently, your love jihad letter in a publication won you raves…Well, for some, I’m suddenly the expert on love jihad. Though most liked it, this one guy, wrote a letter saying that I’d missed crucial points in my essay. Like the fact that my mother married my father (the late cricketer Mansoor Ali Khan) and converted to his religion and that she deserved credit for that. This is true. I wrote just one point of view. That’s why I love the Internet. There’s give and take. You can learn so much.

One lesson you’ve learnt…That a situation can be fixed if you try. And that people are forgiving.
