Who changed Jacqueline’s destiny?

Posted on 08 February 2015 by admin

Actress Jacqueline Fernandez says she doesn’t regret featuring in a bold film like “Murder 2″ as the Mohit

Suri directorial gave her lots of opportunities in the film industry.

“I don’t regret doing a film like ‘Murder 2′. It was my first hit. I had the experience of working with Mohit.

It opened lots of doors for me. It was a risk that I had taken but there is a beauty in taking risks,” Jacqueline, who made her Bollywood debut in 2009 with “Aladin”, told IANS.

“We as actors have nothing to lose. People will remember your performance and you get signed based on

your performance. Not because your film is doing well or not. I want to stick to being diverse, not playing safe,” she added.

The former beauty queen, who will be soon seen with Ranbir Kapoor in “Roy”, says it’s a dream to work with him.

“When you meet Ranbir, he is quiet. I feel he is shy. Once we started shooting, I realised his energy is great. I

feel like he is actually talking to me and not saying his dialogues that makes me a better actress. For any actress, he is a dream to work with,” she said.

Mallika tired of getting glamorous roles

Posted on 08 February 2015 by admin

Actress Mallika Sherawat says she is flooded with offers of glamorous roles in Bollywood. Asked why is she choosy with her scripts, Mallika told IANS: “Yes, I am a little choosy. Usually the roles that I get from Bollywood are very glamorous roles. I want to do roles where I can act and I don’t want to do just one song and dance.”

“My character has to be different. If you are constantly being offered only glamorous roles, you will not do it. ‘Dirty Politics’ is a platform to show my talent,” said the actress, currently busy promoting her film “Dirty Politics”, which also stars Om Puri.

The “Murder” star also shared that she doesn’t believe in camps. “I don’t believe in camps. All these things are not important for me. I want to be an independent woman who can take care of herself. I have never been part of any groups,” said the actress who has worked with filmmakers like Anurag Basu, Mani Ratnam and Satish Kaushik.

Dolly Ki Dolie Review: Strange mish mash of a conwoman and Sati Savitri

Posted on 29 January 2015 by admin

DOlly’ is a strange mish mash of a conwoman and Sati Savitri and so is ‘Dolly Ki Doli’, which starts out with a lot of promise, but ultimately isn’t convincing enough. ‘Dolly Ki Doli’, a comedy about a runaway girl who mar – ries men only to loot them soon after, shows a lot of promise at the outset. The street smart Dolly (Sonam Kapoor) has a fake family with father (Manoj Joshi), brother, mother and a grandmother. The team goes about conning gullible men into marrying Dolly and va – moos with the valuables on the first night. A cop (Pulkit Sam – rat) decides to take up the case, chase and capture Dolly. The first half of the film is fun, thanks to a bunch of com – petent actors and some laughout-loud scenes. Rajkummar Rao, who plays a lovestruck Haryanvi, yet again shows his competence as an actor even though in an unfamiliar set up and also surprises with a typi – cal Bollywood style dance number. Varun Sharma as the daft, mamma’s boy and Archana Pooran Singh, who plays his mother, are simply hilarious. Sonam Kapoor looks gorgeous enough to make us believe that any man could want her to be his wife, but her acting skills still need a bit of brushing up. Pulkit needs to get out of his Salman Khan fixation for us to be able to see his real talent. The second half of the film starts dipping drastically and the climax is disappointing. Sadly, in this ‘pure woman’ obsessed industry, even a con – woman is presented in the ‘touch me not’ garb. By the writer’s and director’s logic, Dolly can break hearts, break trust of the men who fell in love with her and chose to marry her, but please ignore all that because she is a good woman. It’s just that she has had a failed relationship in the past and please adore her be – cause she doesn’t allow any – one to touch or kiss her! If a heartbreak in the past (every woman goes through that in one form or the other) justifies the protagonist turning a crim – inal, okay then. This premise could have worked wonders, if the director confidently showed the protagonist as the stone hearted, badass woman who cheated men for the pure thrill of it. That Dolly would have been far more convincing than this strange mish mash of a conwoman and Sati Savitri.

Revealed: Cost Akki had to pay for doing ‘Baby’?

Posted on 22 January 2015 by admin

AKSHAY Kumar says he completely relied on his director Neeraj Pandey while playing an undercover agent in their upcoming film ‘Baby’.

Akshay, 47, who has played law enforcement officers in his earlier films like ‘Holiday’, ‘Rowdy Rathore’, ‘Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo’ among others, said he went to the sets of ‘Baby’ as a newcomer.

It is Akshay’s second collaboration with Pandey after ‘Special 26′.

“I didn’t do any special preparation for the film because I was asked not to. If I would have prepared there would have been a clash with the director.

“I completely relied on Neeraj and his script. I generally give my suggestions to directors but in this film I completely listened to him. In a nutshell, I became my director’s actor for playing Ajay

Singh Rajput,” Akshay told PTI. ‘Baby’ is an upcoming Indian espionage thriller which has an ensemble cast of Rana Daggubati, Anupam Kher, Danny Denzongpa, Taapsee Pannu besides Akshay. The film, which deals with terrorism, is scheduled for a January 23, 2015 release.

“‘Baby’ will tell people how to be aware about terrorist activities. These kind of films just make people vigil,” he said.

Akshay is happy to team up with the director again because he finishes his films in a short span of time. “Baby has been shot in just 45 days and we completed ‘Special 26′ in 32 days. It’s a good thing for an artiste because his time is not getting wasted and you also get out of the character quickly.

Generally, an actor gets bored after shooting for 50 to 60 days,” he said. In the film, Akshay shares a bad relationship with Kher unlike their roles in ‘Special 26′. “For the first time we have shared such a different relationship in a film. Mine and his viewpoints don’t match and we just hate each other in the group, which is on a secret mission,” he said.

After ‘Baby’, Akshay will be seen in Karan Johar’s ‘Brothers’, ‘Airlift’ and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Main Gabbar’.

“It’s important for an actor to keep on jumping from one genre to the other. Otherwise, it becomes very boring to play similar kind of roles. As an actor, I enjoy doing slapstick comedy, dry humour, serious and action films,” the actor said. Asked if he ever gets affected by playing a character on-screen, Akshay said, “I don’t think about my roles after pack up… I just unwind myself after finishing a shoot by saying, ‘Stop acting now and face reality’.
