Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has always been known as the Beauty Queen of Bollywood and an extremely talented and versatile actress. She is known as the world’s most beautiful woman and there is no comparison to her international connect and her fan following, but with the role she is playing in her upcoming film ‘Sarbjit’ which is directed by the National Award Winning director Omung Kumar, we believe the actress in her will set a new benchmark for herself.

 

According to a source, Aishwarya got a standing ovation and a round of applause from everyone present on the set for her phenomenal performance that she delivered. It was a speech with heart wrenching dialogues, which she had to deliver in one go that is seemingly to get back to the protestors who were protesting against Sarbjit and his family. The talented diva did the same with so much perfection and immense real feelings that her performance left everyone with goosebumps and teary eyes. Everyone present on the premises took a moment to gather themselves and then stood up to clap in respect of the actress’s magnificent effort.

 

“With 25 years of experience, Aishwarya stands tall as one of the most efficient and professional artists.  And since she pulled off a 2mins performance oriented scene so gracefully in one take, with no cuts and retakes, it was more like a real moment than a scene being filmed.” says the producer of ‘Sarbjit’, Sandeep Singh.

 

Aishwarya has made us proud with every step she took and we are sure our queen will do the same in this film. We look forward to watch ‘Sarbjit’ which is now slated to release on the 19th of May 2016.

She  has already sung for two songs, one is from Kunal Kohli’s Phir Se, and Prakash Jha’s soon-to-release cop drama, Jai Gangaajal. On this Prakash Jha says,”I heard the song she had sung for Kunal Kohli and liked her voice. It’s lovely, silky and very deep, I felt it was just what our devotional song, “Sab dhan maati”, required so I asked my composers, Salim-Sulaiman, to try her out. They liked her too and we recorded the track last month in two sessions over a couple of hours.”
The film has 12 songs and all of them play in the background. The song crooned by Amruta is part of a sequence which features Jha himself, he informs, “I play Priyanka’s junior, Deputy Superintendent of Police, BP Singh, and the song appears at a character transformation moment.”
When further asked what was the reaction of CM, he says, “I have no idea but Amruta was a pleasure to work with.  Very simple, no airs, enthusiastic. She quietly came, recorded the song and left. The music directors later wanted to re-dub certain portions and without any fuss she came back and did the needful.”

Jai Gangaajal, starring Priyanka Chopra, Prakash Jha, Manav Kaul is slated for 4th March, 2016 release.

Sunny Leone’s most candid interview

                         

sunny apologises

Sunny Leone has said “sorry” to Sunny Deol for the jokes on the two which are doing the rounds, and has even taken responsibility for them. “Mr. Sunny Deol, I just wanna say that I am so sorry, mujhe maaf kar do, kyunke itne horrible, weird jokes ho gaye aapke aur mere uparmeri wajah se. So I am sorry.” (Please forgive me, because of the many horrible, weird jokes on you and about me – all because of me). She sent out this message while speaking about her upcoming adult comedy film Mastizaadeon hotstar’s Malishka-anchored show M Bole Toh.

It was like a reveal-all conversation which saw Sunny reminisce about her childhood, divulging never-before details about her personal life, past and present, including the story of how she was wooed by husband Daniel, her advice for sex addicts, her idea of an ideal man, whether she thinks Indians have double standards on sex, what it takes for a woman to wear a bikini regardless of size, and more.

“I wasn’t popular; In fact there is a picture of mine floating around on the internet, which has me in aunibrow and hair all over the place! I didn’t really discover myself until I turned 19. I used to play with GI Joes and not Barbies!  I never thought of myself as hot or sexy.”

Sunny comes through with disarming honesty and poise, even as her fun-loving, girl-next-door personality shines through the interaction on M Bole Toh. She can also be seen indulging in some fun-filled activities and games on M Bole Toh, which is now live on hotstar.com

Since Sunny plays a teacher to a sex addict group in Mastizaade, she shares her definition of a sex addict and also sums it up with a bit of advice: “I think if it takes over your mind and your ability to have a normal life, then the person is a sex addict and should seek help.”

What kind of a guy would be Sunny’s ideal man? She says, “For me it has to be the whole package. It’s not just about being funny. They should have a sense of humour, they should take care of their bodies, groom themselves, and have their own sense of style. There is nothing nicer than a guy who knows his sense of style, knows what he wants, and not a guy who needs his girlfriend to say wear this T shirt and these jeans, here’re your shoes, your socks, your sneakers, out you go!”

She speaks about her marriage with Daniel, how he wooed her, and about their wedding at a Gurudwara. “Daniel is hot, sweet, funny and makes me laugh all day. We’ve been together for eight years now, and have been married for five. We got married in a Gurudwara and had a very traditional Punjabi wedding. He still turns red when I talk about him.

“Daniel is more the romantic one than I am. He definitely worked to get my attention – wherever I’d go… to a restaurant or anywhere else… he would send a dozen roses or a box of chocolates, and then when I used to go home, I’d find flowers on the steps. He was a borderline stalker! It had never happened with me before that a guy tried so much or made so many efforts to impress me. He would write me beautiful letters and stuff. At the end of the day, a girl wants a prince who treats her like a princess.”

Clearly still in love, Sunny also talks about the tradition of Karva Chauth: “I don’t keep (the) Karva Chauth (fast) for Daniel as we are more spiritual than religious.”

On being asked if Indians have double standards towards sex, Sunny says gracefully, “I think that people are a lot more accepting, a lot more open minded than we give them credit for; I am a walking proof of that. If people had double standards and were this way, I wouldn’t have been here.”

Sunny, on being asked for tips to maintain a bikini body, says: “I normally eat healthy khana, and work out a lot. But I think for a woman to be in a bikini, whatever the size,  it takes guts and a little bit of courage and confidence,” she said on a segment of the popular show.

 

Sunny also urges women to embrace their bodies and let go of their inhibitions. “Just love your body; who cares what size you are?! The whole world knows I have curves, so one just has to embrace it. I have been to places where I see short women, tall women, skinny women, in their bikinis. They are happy, they are proud, strutting their stuff, having a good time. I think you just have to let go.”

All about Star Plus new show TAMANA

Dharaa aka Anuja Sathe poses for the camera at the press launch of Star Plus's new  show Tamanna...jpg

Tamanna features Anuja Sathe as the protagonist Dharaa Solanki – her passion for cricket and her journey through the different phases of her life. Staying true to STAR Plus philosophy ‘Rishta Wohi, Soch Nayi’, the show challenges the existing stereotype that a woman’s dreams come with an expiry date as it showcases how Dharaa endeavors to fulfill all the relationships in her life, as well as to retain her drive to pursue her unconventional dream.

In a nation where cricket is worshipped almost like a religion, Tamanna will present a unique take, which will encompass relationships at home and work with cricket as a powerful backdrop.

An original finite series, Tamanna is an inspirational story of Dharaa Solanki essayed by Anuja Sathe, a well-known face in the Marathi Entertainment Industry, who takes the leap to mainstream Hindi television with ‘Tamanna’. She said, “Tamanna is the story of a simple girl Dharaa, who has an unconventional dream of becoming a cricketer. Everyone faces challenges at various junctures in their life but nothing is impossible if you believe in yourself and most importantly, your dreams. Despite the various hardships that Dharaa faces, she doesn’t give up on her dreams. Young girls and women will definitely relate to Dharaa’s story. For me, to take up this show was a big challenge. The approach with regards to the dialogues, the writing and the characters is very different and that’s what the best thing about Tamanna is. There is something new in everything we do.”

“Tamanna is a special dedication to women across the nation who nurture unique aspirations. Not everyone dares to dream and even those who do, do not always get an opportunity to fulfil them. Women especially, are often refrained from realizing their dreams because of many reasons like marriage, society and sometimes just the sheer expectation to live up to the many roles she essays – a daughter, a wife, a mother, a daughter-in-law etc. Tamanna is an inspirational story that we hope will encourage women to look back on their dreams and maybe give them another chance. Said Waseem Sabir, director

Sons of veteran actor Ramesh Deo, Abhinay and Ajinkya the duo have successfully established themselves in the Hindi film industry with movies like Delhi Belly, Game and their upcoming 2016 release, Force 2. Tamanna also marks acclaimed Bollywood Director Abhinay Deo’s original finite fiction television show as the series director.

The story is set in the aesthetically rich cities of Jamnagar, Meerut and Mumbai with a stellar cast that includes veteran actors including Ketki Dave, Kiran Karmarkar, Harsh Chhaya, RajLaxmi and Vishal Gandhi as part of the series. Saumya Joshi is the writer who has pieced the show together and Waseem Sabir has been roped in as the Director.

 

Tamanna to air from 1st Feb, Monday to Saturday at 10 pm on Star Plus

Designed as a finite series, the show is being produced by Ajinkya Deo. The renowned producer-director duo, together, are all set to narrate this unconventional story about a common girl from 1st February, 2016 onwards every Monday to Saturday at 10 PM on STAR Plus.
