Anushka Sharma calls Bollywood a fickle place

Posted on 27 July 2016 by admin

While she has established herself as an actress and even tasted success with her foray into production with ‘NH10′, Anushka Sharma initially ‘vehemently refused’ to enter Bollywood.

The actress attributes those days to a protected life for someone coming from an army background. Conceding that her exposure to movies was limited, she has been quoted saying, “When you’re not a part of an industry, your knowledge of that field is based on what you read and hear, and on the stereotypes that are attached to it.”

However, her perception changed when she went to audition for Aditya Chopra’s ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’. After the ‘advertising’ like atmosphere at the studio comforted her, the filmmaker put her at ease.

Though the film became a hit, she wasn’t branded ‘the next big thing’. Recalling that there was nothing more than her work being appreciated then, the ‘Sultan’ actress told a daily, “I’ve gone through the phase where I’ve seen how fickle this place is. After ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’, I’ve seen people change. I’m glad my first film didn’t do that much for me, otherwise I wouldn’t have had this experience.”

Diya Mirza says talent is not valued in Bollywood

Posted on 27 July 2016 by admin

Dia Mirza, who made her cinematic debut with Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein in 2001, feels that talent is not valued in the Indian film industry.

“There is no value of talent in Bollywood. One gets a job due to profiling. To hit or being flop of films is the base of your report card. And, when it’s the base for the industry, then it’s quite impossible to reach the goal,” she said recently on a chat Show.

The 34-year-old actor, while speaking about her upcoming Indo-Iranian movie Salaam Mumbai, told ETV that, “This is for the first time that India and Iran are jointly making a film.”

She even gushed about the love and appreciation she received from the people of Iran during the shooting of her film.

Kareena Kapoor UPSET with Deepika find out why!

Posted on 27 July 2016 by admin

Deepika Padukone’s recent statement saying, “I am not getting married and I am not pregnant,” may have been innocent. But the Begum of Bollywood who is currently pregnant for some reason thinks it is a dig at her. Blame her pregnancy hormones or just being extra sensitive but Kareena Kapoor Khan has taken this comment very personally. Says an insider, “While it makes sense for Dips to deny her engagement and marriage rumours, which have been doing the rounds, Bebo can’t understand why she denied being pregnant, because no one said she was! KKK is also annoyed at the unsaid implication that actresses who are in the family way are no longer serious about the career or scare producers away. Kareena is gearing up to begin shooting for her next film and with big belly and all, she will rock it.” We have no doubt she will.

Not to forget, an angry Kareena had recently even lashed out at the news mongers for discussing her pregnancy like a ‘national casualty.’ She had said, “I’m pregnant, not a corpse. And what maternity break? It’s the most normal thing on earth to produce a child. It is high time the media back off, and stop treating me any different than I ever was. Anybody who is bothered shouldn’t work with me… but my work goes on as is, like always. Stop making it a national casualty.

Demi Lovato Chooses Side in Taylor Swift-Kim Kardashian Clash

Posted on 21 July 2016 by admin

Demi Lovato has chosen a side in the ongoing, epic, red hot feud between Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift.

And the team she has chosen to align herself with may surprise you. First, a quick refresher: Several weeks ago, Kanye West released a track titled “Famous.” Among the lyrics in this song were lines taking aim at Swift, as Kanye referred to Taylor as a “bitch,” said he made her famous and added that the singers “might still have sex.”

Soon after the song went public, Swift came out and slammed Kanye, saying she never approved of such sexist lyrics.

A couple months later, however, in an interview with GQ, Kardashian calls BS on Swift’s claim, telling the magazine that Swift was made very much aware of what the song was going to say.

Moreover, Swift gave the controversial lyrics her blessing. Then, on Sunday night, in case any doubt remained, Kim actually released a phone call she recorded back in the day of West running the lyrics by Swift.

As you can see below, Taylor gave the references to her full approval. Kim’s release of this video has escalated her feud with Swift to Defcon 5-like levels.

Swift has threatened to sue Kardashian and West because it’s illegal to record a phone conversation in California with the permission of all involved

Long struggle before I play typical Bollywood heroine: Taapsee Pannu

Posted on 14 July 2016 by admin

Taapsee Pannu, who is just two films old in the Hindi film industry, feels she needs to show versatility as an actress before becoming the quintessential Bollywood heroine.

Taapsee says she currently wants to concentrate on performance-oriented roles rather than running after the cliche “cute, bubbly” characters, which are anyway dominated by bigger female stars.

“Bollywood already has those quintessential girls who do love stories and play ‘sweet and cute’ kind of roles. There are so many of them who are much bigger names than me, market wise. “So, I am left with acting-oriented roles. I need to keep acting well to reach a point where I can also do those ‘happy-go-lucky’ roles and feel like a big heroine,” Taapsee told PTI in an interview.

“Before that I have to do the struggle of doing variety so that people see that I am a decent actor and I look decent enough to be placed as a typical heroine.”

The 28-year-old actress is happy that the upcoming list of her on-screen outings, including megastar Amitabh Bachchan-starrer “Pink”, will prove her acting credentials thanks to the diversity in characters.

“‘Pink’ is an intense thriller, which is going to show the audience a different side of me as an actor. Next, I am doing a love story, then there is ‘Ghazi’, where I am playing a Bangladeshi refugee.
