Parineeti Chopra on Working With Khans: I was Misquoted

Parineeti has clarified and said that her statement has been blown out of proportion.
Actress Parineeti Chopra was recently reported to have said in an interview to a magazine that she is not working with the Bollywood Khans - Salman, Shah Rukh and Aamir - because she would have nothing to do in the film.

However, the four-film old actress has clarified and said that her statement has been blown out of proportion. 

"I would just like to clarify a bit on that (what I said in that interview). That comment was blown out of proportion. It was an answer to a question that I was asked," Parineeti told reporters here on Thursday at the launch of Yash Raj's fashion store Diva'ni. 

"I was asked if I was offered a film with senior actors. To that I answered, 'Yes, I have been offered those films but I didn't have much to do, so I did chose not to do'. I did not specifically take anybody's name," she added. 

Parineeti, who made her acting debut with Ladies vs Ricky Bahl in 2011, feels it is not wise to make such an insensitive statement. 

The 25-year-old said: "I am too new an actor to do something like that. I think it is a very insensitive thing to say if any actor says that."

"I will never talk about the films that I am not a part of. I will only talk about the films that I am confirmed to be a part of. So it was not entirely a true statement. I think it was unfair for the publication to quote me in the wrong way," she added. 

So far, she has worked with young actors only, be it Arjun Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra, Ranveer Singh or Sushant Singh Rajput. 

Her next films are Daawat-e-Ishq and Kill Dil, in which she is again working with young actors like Aditya Roy Kapoor, Ranveer and Ali Zafar, respectively.

Salman, Katrina back as an on-screen couple? पर्दे पर फिर हमजोली करेंगे सलमान-कटरीना?

According to the latest grapevine, Katrina Kaif will star in a special song for Salman Khan’s forthcoming movie, ‘Kick’. Kat has been approached by the film producer Sajid Nadiadwala to groove in the special number and it is believed that the diva has also accepted the offer. The good news is that Katrina Kaif will be seen alongside Salman Khan shaking her legs after a long gap.

After breaking-up, the duo maintained a cordial relationship and came together for Kabir Khan’s blockbuster ‘Ek Tha Tiger’. The film turned out to be a duper-super hit but Salman and Katrina did not sign any film together after ‘Ek Tha Tiger’.

There has been no any formal announcement of Katrina being part of the upcoming movie‘Kick’ as Sallu is yet to give his nod. The song is said to be a part of the movie promotion and will be a special attraction.

Apart from Salman Khan, ‘Kick’ stars Jacqueline Fernandez, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Mithun Chakravarty and Randeep Hooda in the pivotal role.

Salman and Katrina’s jodi always lure the audience and their comeback will surely take the silver screen by storm.

When no one wanted to be clicked with Big B

While shooting for R. Balki’s Shamitabh, Amitabh Bahchcan decided to visit a school in Ooty but shockingly no photographs were clicked at the event. Read on to find out why…

Amitabh Bachchan is busy shooting with Dhanush for R. Balki’s upcoming film but the actor found some time out from his busy schedule to visit a the Founder’s Day function organised at the Lawrence School in Lovedale, Ooty. When Sr Bachchan found out that a 3000 strong crowd would be present at the event, he dropped in a little later so that the crowd was made sparse with time.

But the crowd went nowhere; guests came back thronging to get one good look of Big B. So where are the pictures of the event you ask? There are none as the public was so star-struck to see the Bhootnath Returns actor that everybody just forgot to click pictures! Not even a customary selfie was clicked with Big B. Well, we understand that the charm exuded by Shehenshaah’s remarkable persona can overpower his fans’ senses entirely! If only there was someone at the school function to capture the expressions on Big B’s fans’ faces.

Hrithik, Sunaina launch book on dad Rakesh Roshan

Rakesh Roshan, his wife Pinkie, and their children Sunaina and Hrithik were in Delhi in a rarely captured picture perfect moment for the launch of To Dad, With Love, a pictorial biography on the filmmaker by his daughter. She says once she worked closely with her dad, she realised that "this man needs to be written about".

Sunaina, a cancer survivor who constantly exudes a vibrant smile with a sparkle in her eyes, says it was when she worked with her father as an assistant director for "Krrish 3" that the idea of a book on the actor-filmmaker struck her.

"I saw a different side of him at work. I felt this man needs to be written about to inspire people," Sunaina, the elder of the Roshans' children, said here Monday night.

The book's foreward is written by Hrithik, and their mother Pinkie played a key role in putting the whole idea together.

Sunaina says it is his never-say-die spirit which inspires her the most, and it is his philosophy of "tough times don't last, tough people do", which kept her going when she was ill.

So, once Sunaina decided to embark on the journey of penning a book, based on a gamut of photographs from Rakesh Roshan's childhood to teenage days as well as his days as a young handsome actor, when he turned a husband, father, director and on his journey till now, she touched base with his extended family and friends secretly to get the project going.

There are about 30 people, including names like Shatrughan Sinha, Jeetendra and Rishi Kapoor, to whom Sunaina spoke to for getting the most candid information out about her father.

Sunaina said amongst all, Hrithik was the toughest to get hold of to write the foreward for the book, but when he did, he did it with all his heart.

For Rakesh Roshan, who is known for directing films like Khoon Bhari Maang, Karan Arjun, Kaho Naaa Pyaar Hai and the Krrisha franchise, it was a proud and happy moment.

On Monday, after Narendra Modi took oath as the country's 14th prime minister, here was Rakesh Roshan attending a launch of a book on himself by his daughter.

"Modi-ji ne kahaa ache din aane waale hain. Mera ache din toh aa gaya (Modi said good days lie ahead, my good day has come) - a daughter is launching a book on her father. What better day to launch it," he said on Monday.

The proud daddy said he was surprised yet proud that Sunaina managed to interview his school friends, teachers and co-actors, and has quoted them "so well" in the book, published by Om Books International.

The family heaped praise on each other's `superhero' abilities at the event, which was also attended by the Roshans' elderly family members. Rakesh and Pinkie were emotional to see them, and went out of their way to greet them.

Tigers Shroff replaces Hrithik in Kjo’s `Immortals of Meluha`

Jackie Shroff’s son Tiger Shroff is yet to show his acting potential and woo his audience but he has already bagged a promising project to be produced by Dharma Productions. The project in question is `Immortals of Meluha` which is based on Lord Shiva trilogy and which Karan is planning for a long time. Tiger will apparently replace Hrithik Roshan in the film.

At first Karan roped in Hrithik Roshan to enact the role of Lord Shiva but owing to ill-health, the actor walked out. `Immortals of Meluha`, is based on the book by Amish Tripathi by the same name and the film is to be directed by Karan Malhotra of ‘Agneepath’ fame.

Tiger Shroff’s debut venture ‘Heropanti’ is yet to see the light of the day and the actor has already started making noise. The actor has impressed everyone with his muscular body, dance, high dose of action. He has all the ingredients which Karan wants for the lead role.

‘Immortals of Mehula’ will go on floor after Karan Johar’s ‘Shuddhi’ is released. Initially, Hrithik Roshan and Vidya Balan were roped for the project. It is not yet decided who will play the female lead. It is learnt that Shroff himself is a huge devotee of Lord Shiva in real life and takes inspiration from his stories.

Well, all we can say is that Tiger Shroff has scored sixer by grabbing this mammoth project.

'Manjunath' review: It's an important story that deserves to be heard

Cast: Sasho Satyiish Saarthy, Yashpal Sharma, Seema Biswas, Kishor Kadam, Anjorie Alagh, Faisal Rashid

Director: Sandeep A Varma

The 2005 murder of Manjunath Shanmugam, the 27-year-old Indian Oil employee who'd been threatening to bust the fuel adulteration racket in Lakhimpur Kheri in Uttar Pradesh, makes for an earnest and compelling film in the hands of first-time director Sandeep Varma. Cutting skillfully between his happy years at the IIM Lucknow campus, and the reaction of his friends and employers to him having gone missing for two days, the film opens nicely, constructing a telling portrait of the man Manjunath used to be, and the ghost of a man he'd become following his obsession with correcting malpractices in the petrol trade.
The film is based on 2005 murder of Manjunath Shanmugam who'd been threatening to bust the fuel adulteration racket in UP.

In a smart decision that helps the film enormously, Varma casts new-find Sasho Satish Sarathy as the courageous protagonist, who cannot be bribed or bullied into turning a blind eye at the rampant corruption. We're introduced to Manjunath's concerned parents (played excellently by Seema Biswas and Kishor Kadam), who wish he'd take a transfer to Bangalore so they could be closer to him. We also meet crooked petrol pump-owner Golu (the terrific Yashpal Sharma), repeatedly brought to task by Manjunath, who in a drunken rage fires the first of many bullets that kills our hero.

Upto this point, the film is riveting. Varma paints an authentic picture of the Indian badlands, and reveals the lasting bond between IIM graduates, and with their professors even. There's a bruising honesty to the relationship between Manjunath and his mother, and a palpable sense of frustration from his boss who wishes he would just let some things be.

The film slips into a morass of clunky plotting in its final act, when the court case takes over, followed by the candlelight vigil undertaken by IIM students. It all feels very rushed and...umm...obligatory. There are other problems too. Repeated confrontations between Manjunath's spirit and his killer strike a false note, and rock band Parikrama's multiple appearances become tiresome.

Yet these are minor quibbles in a well-intentioned film that wears its message brazenly. I'm going with three out of five for Manjunath. It's an important story that deserves to be heard.

Rating: 3/5

She is arguably one of the busiest actresses of her generation.

Post the massive success of Aashiqui 2, Shraddha Kapoor has had a very hectic shooting schedule since September.Shraddha has been shooting for Haider with Shahid Kapoor and shoot Ek Villain with Sidharth Malhotra.

Shraddha has some close friends in Boston who she has been in touch with even after becoming a Bollywood star. 

When her film Aashiqui 2 had released, her friends in Boston had given her feedback on how her songs had become a rage there. Shraddha later even sent them DVD's of the film. 

Shraddha is keen to visit her hostel and has apparently applied for permission to visit the room she used to stay in.

Speaking on her plans, Shraddha's team reveals, "Shraddha has been in a hectic shooting schedule. Having some time to herself she is visiting her university in Boston and is also keen to see her room."
