Pooja Bhatt stands up for Miley Cyrus

Mumbai, Aug 30 (IANS) Actor-director Pooja Bhatt has stood up for international pop star Miley Cyrus' performance with singer Robin Thicke at a recent music awards ceremony for which she has been criticised.

Cyrus performed with Thicke on his track "Blurred lines" and was seen twerking and flirting with the singer on stage at MTV Video Music Awards.

Bhatt, 41, took to Twitter to speak in favour of Cyrus.

"Bash Miley Cyrus yet say nothing about Robin Thicke and his obnoxious lyrics. How can the world be different from our own backyards," she tweeted.

"So she twerked, stuck out her tongue, pissed the world off. Cannot take away from the fact that the girl can sing and 'We can't stop' rocks!"

The award ceremony took place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn Aug 25. Cyrus has been making headlines since then for her racy performance with Thicke.

Arjun Mathur not game for rom-coms

Last seen in the medical thriller "Ankur Arora Murder Case", actor Arjun Mathur says he will not get into the romantic comedy (rom-com) genre but is game for a love story.

"I am not getting into rom-coms ever in my life. I am into love stories and I want to do them, but something with a slightly different concept," Arjun told IANS.

"We are just stuck to one particular depiction of love in our films. If I do a love story it will be something different," he added.

The 31-year-old also said that he wants to explore new genres and wants to try different things.

"I am not stuck to one particular genre. I want to explore and do different things. Last year all the movies I did were completely different from each other," Arjun said.

"I think I am just lucky in that sense because if a filmmaker is making his first film, for some reason he thinks of me," he added.

Arjun has been part of films like "Luck By Chance" and "My Name Is Khan" and is currently working on "Fireflies", "Coffee Bloom" and "Couching Tiger Mannu".
