  • 'Ek Thi Daayan doesn't propagate witchcraft’

    Emraan Hashmi is an antithesis of his over-the-top screen image. In real life, he has a wicked sense of humour, for only those who get it. When he debuted in 2003, critics were quick to write him off due to his non-hero looks and his choice of films. It has been a long journey and not a smooth one for him since his ‘Murder’ days. From a mass hero catering to mostly frontbenchers to bankable star super-hit potboilers, he has coursed the long mile. His performance as Jogi Parmar in 'Shanghai' made the critics sit up and take notice of him. With Vishal Bhardwaj's 'Ek Thi Daayan', Emraan's filmi graph has taken a new turn as he stars along with Huma Quereshi, Kalki and Konkona Sen Sharma. In a candid chat, the star tells us about his role and why he wants to get rid of his ‘kisser’ image.

    Excerpts from the interview:

    How did ‘Ek Thi Daayan’ happen?
    I was drawn to the story and the subject, written by Mukul which was adapted by Vishal. It was fascinating because thematically

  • Hrithik Roshan turns mentor

    The actor has taken the Gen-Next actors under his wing and giving them career advice
    Bollywood’s boy brigade has found a mentor in none other than Hrithik Roshan. And the actor, too, seems to have readily taken Varun Dhawan, Sidharth Malhotra and Arjun Kapoor under his wing, giving them professional advice and occasional pep talks.

    While Arjun successfully made his entry into the film industry with the May 2012 release Ishaqzaade, Sidharth and Varun debuted with the multi-starrer hit, Student Of The Year (SOTY) a few months after that.
    Though the three actors’ second films are yet to hit the big screen, Hrithik has apparently already spotted their potential. “He is really impressed with them. He formally met Sidharth at the Marrakech Film Festival last year and just sat him down for a quick chat,” says a source. However, what moved Sidharth the most was the fact that Hrithik made time to speak to him even though they had never met before. “He’s a really cool guy and he has these great Read More »from Hrithik Roshan turns mentor

    After playing a pivotal role of Joginder Singh Brar in romantic comedy film 'Yamla Pagla Deewana', actor Anupam Kher is ready to surprise his fans again with the much anticipated sequel of the film. He will soon be seen as a quirky and hilarious villain called ‘Joe Armstrong’ who has a mad idea of building a virtual mall in director Sangeeth Sivan’s upcoming film Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 (YPD2).

    Over the weekend when Kher was shooting at the National Space Centre in Leicester, UK for YPD2, he felt like a kid when he visited the place for the very first time. The cast of the film was shooting there during the nights. A source close of Kher says, “He was enthusiastic in exploring the universe at length at Sir Patrick Moore Planetarium and Rocket Tower there and learned some bizarre facts about space suits and space world. But only after wearing the spacesuit, he realised that how tough it is to move in that as it’s really very Read More »from Guess who is on a trip to the moon?
