Posted on 31 August 2016 by admin

Actress Diana Penty is more than happy for her Cocktail co-star Deepika Padukone for her “great achievement” of making her Hollywood debut with the film xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. Diana, who ventured into Bollywood in 2012 with Cocktail starring alongside Deepika and Saif Ali Khan, says she is proud of the Bajirao Mastani star.

“It is a great achievement. We all are so proud of her. It is an amazing achievement. She has managed to put Bollywood on the map along with Priyanka Chopra,” Diana, whose film Happy Bhaag Jayegi released earlier this month, told IANS. In xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, Deepika shares screen space with Hollywood star Vin Diesel.

Directed by D.J. Caruso, it is a sequel to the 2002 film xXx and 2005 film xXx: State of the Union. It also stars Ruby Rose, Samuel L. Jackson, Donnie Yen and Tony Jaa. The film is slated to release on January 20, 2017.

Diana Penty, who has returned to the silver screen with Happy Bhag Jayegi, four years after her Bollywood debut Cocktail, feels that if there is no problem, then it is a problem. “I am coming to my own. I am more confident. I am not self-conscious anymore. I am not shy and reserved as I used to be. I have learnt that I am who I am. If you have a problem then it’s your problem,” said the actress to Filmfare, when asked, “how have you changed over the years.” When Diana was further quizzed about her whereabouts post Cocktail, she replied that she was busy with her endorsements, shows, and modeling, as acting was something that just happened to her.

Nargis Fakhri reveals about her life-threatening disease

Posted on 31 August 2016 by admin

Bollywood beauty Nargis Fakhri has been in the news of late for rumours over quitting Bollywood, and now the actress has captured media attention for ‘fighting life-threatening disease’.

Recently, the actress sparked rumours that she left India because she had broken up with rumoured boyfriend Uday Chopra.

But, she in an interview to a leading daily said, “When I came here, I had arsenic and lead poisoning and no one knew what was wrong with me.

It can happen in many ways — it could be in the water, food, rusted lead pipes in an old building. The doctor tested me, but he was so scared because it was at a very high level and I asked him ‘What do I do?’ Then I cured myself.”

She added, “Ayurveda is based on naturopathy, herbs basically but it was a combination of different things that I researched and six months later I got the test done again and there was nothing! The doctor was like ‘Oh, my God! How did you do this?’ And I said I will tell you when I see you.”

Rumblings of her quitting Bollywood also made headlines recently in the media. Without digging deep into rumour mills, the Rockstar actress slammed these rumours on her Instagram.

Diana Penty clears the air on Her absence from Bollywood

Posted on 25 August 2016 by admin

ACTRESS Diana Penty is returning to the silver screen after a stint of 4 years. The reason for such a long wait was because she did not want to put pressure on herself and sign every film that came her way. `The break was not a conscious decision. Me not doing films has been misinterpreted. I was just playing it by ear and didn’t want to put any pressure on myself.`

The actress further added, `Cocktail happened overnight. I didn’t have the time to think and got into films without realizing what I was doing.`

Diana who will next be seen in Happy Bhag Jayegi explained that she was offered a number of films but nothing appealed to her, `I didn’t want to do whatever came my way but rather, what I felt was right for me. I agree it was an unconventional way of going about things, but sometimes it’s best to follow your instincts`, the actress signed off.

Happy Bhag Jayegi which stars Abhay Deol, Jimmy Sheirgill and Ali Fazal alongside Diana, is all set to release on 19th August 2016.

He is no less than family for Deepika who lives all by herself in this city.

Jacqueline Feels ‘More Confident’ as an Actor Seven Years After Debut

Posted on 18 August 2016 by admin

She made her big screen debut seven years ago and Jacqueline Fernandez says she is a much more confident actress today and feels ready to take up challenging roles.

The actress first appeared in Sujoy Ghosh’s fantasy drama Aladin but it was Mohit Suri’s psychological thriller Murder 2 which was her breakthrough role.

“I am a more confident actress today. The change is definitely inevitable. It needs to be there, you need to grow. So that’s why I am looking forward to a lot more challenging roles today than ever before,” Jacqueline told PTI.

The 31-year-old actress has worked in big films like Race 2, Brothers, Housefull 3 and the Salman Khan’s Kick.

When asked if directors have not tapped her full potential as an actress, Jacqueline said, “Possibly yes. I don’t know if directors haven’t tapped into it but maybe, I wasn’t ready before. Now I do feel ready to take on more challenging stuff. Earlier, I think I probably had not given enough (in my roles) because I wasn’t ready for them.”

The actress, who recently starred in Dishoom is set for her next, A Flying Jatt. Jacqueline feels her perspective towards the craft of acting has changed and she is willing to contribute a lot more than what she used to earlier.

“Now, the kind of roles I do and the films I take on, I look at them in a different way. The perspective has definitely changed. I am enjoying the process. So from now on, I will give them a lot more so then it helps even the directors a lot,” she said.

A Flying Jatt will feature Jacqueline as the love interest to Tiger Shroff’s character of a superhero. The Remo D’Souza-directed superhero-action movie is scheduled to release on August 25.

Not just Bollywood, I’ve turned down 6 Hollywood films as well – Priyanka Chopra

Posted on 11 August 2016 by admin

Priyanka Chopra has been on a roll, ever since she entered the film industry, and is now probably one of the Bollywood actors who has made her presence felt all over the world.

Priyanka’s last Bollywood project was Prakash Jha’s Jai Gangaajal and since then fans have been eagerly waiting to see the Bajirao Mastani actor to sign a Bollywood film. But, this is not going to happen anytime soon.

The 34-year-old actress told a tabloid, “I am not only saying no to Bollywood films. I have also turned down more than six Hollywood films. I am rejecting films across industries. I’m going to pick the best and do only one film from each side next year. Even that would mean pushing myself against time. But I’m a 70mm girl who can never give up Hindi films. Main toh apni TV series bhi 70mm pe dekthi hoon.”

Priyanka said that she hasn’t signed Don 3 yet and also revealed that she’ll take her own sweet time to sign her next project. “My schedule is water-tight till March, 2017 as I am contractually bound to wrap up the second season of Quantico. It would be great if season three comes along as it’s a progressive show, which airs in 212 territories worldwide. I get to interact with an audience that may have never known me through my feature films.” added Priyanka.

We still have to wait to see PeeCee on the big screen!
