The film has opened to a positive response from the audience and critics alike. The romantic-comedy drama has bankrolled the movie under his banner V Creations. Digangana Suryavanshi who has been a part of Bigg Boss Hindi, makes her South debut with this film and must say, she has got a good start. The young actress in a recent conversation with us spoke about her chemistry with Kartikeya, her challenge to learn Telugu and a lot more.

Excerpt from the interview:

Acted in Hindi films, done reality shows among one being Bigg Boss, now made your Telugu debut. How did things fell in place and your decision to enter the South India Film industry? 

Wow.. well… things falling in place is God’s grace. I try and keep up with my work, my decisions are definitely based on prioritising what I wanna do next.. Bigg Boss was quite a decision as I was 17 then… Then took some time from tv and only focused on films, fortunately, worked out well… I’ve always been inclined towards the south industry, making of films here, stories, really talented people… So yea it was in some part of my mind, so I received calls for Hippi, I flew to Chennai to meet the team, I thought I was gonna meet just the director maybe but to walk into a room with Thanu sir, Krishna sir, RD sir (DOP) , Poorthi (Designer) I was quite overwhelmed, I knew it the very first meeting that this is gonna be a good decision looking at the confidence and passion of everyone in the room and we finalized things on the same day…

How was working with Karthikeya? Your chemistry in one of the songs from the film is the highlight. 

Very good to work with him, we share a good rapport, our director Krishna sir planned a three-four days workshop together to see how our chemistry looks an of course since it’s a new language for me.. it’s all been great, someone I can talk to in general and not feel out of space…haha.. I am glad you liked our chemistry and hope everyone does when they watch the film

How challenging was it to learn Telugu? 

Well… initially to start with, very very new! It took me about a week to get my first schedule line which was in Srilanka… so that week in Hyderabad, I’d do reading with Krishna sir, Kasi (written dialogues in Telugu) and assistant directors, right from marking all meaning in English to understanding the mood of every scene precisely, to hearing voice memos… it was all of that but very happy with the outcome, didn’t have to take any prompting, I don’t like it, I memorized all my lines irrespective of how big they were..

Share us about your role in the film, Hippi? 

My role in Hippi as you see in the teaser and trailer, she loves to ride a bike, an outgoing person but that’s not all… there’s a lotttttt to the role! I’d like everyone to watch the film and find out but until then I assure you it’ll be a great watch!

What is one thing that you have learnt from the South Indian film industry? 

I think south film industry and Hindi film industry are both so well equipped… technically, with lovely crew and cast I felt home.. what I do enjoy a lot is the “Tashan” in Roles, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed in mine! Heh

One of the favourite South Indian male actors you would want to work with?

A lot ya… huge fan of Bahubali! Have watched contemporary movies as well of course… Rajnikanth sir, Chiranjeevi sir, Kamal Hassan sir are legends …

Commonwealth Games gold medallist Babita Phogat tied the knot on Sunday to their ancestral village of Balali in Haryana with the wrestler and long-time lover Vivek Suhag. Instead of the traditional seven, Babita reportedly took an extra phera to support the initiative ‘ Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao ‘ which condemns female foeticide and encourages girls ‘ education.

The 30-year-old was wearing a red lehenga, identical to the actress Priyanka Chopra’s wedding dress. Geeta, her sister and also a wrestling gold medallist at the Commonwealth Games, posted the occasion’s pictures on her official Instagram account.

Congratulating her sister on her new journey, Geeta shared three photos from the wedding with the caption, “My lovely sister @babitaphogatofficial. Congratulations on your marriage. I hope that all of your dreams come true as you begin this new journey. Many many congratulations to both of you.”

While Geeta and Babita are well-known wrestlers, after the release of the Aamir Khan-starrer Dangal, Khan also extended his best wishes to Babita on the occasion with a tweet that said, “Dear @BabitaPhogat, wishing you and @SuhagVivek a happy, healthy and fulfilling marriage together.”

Babita, who won a gold in the 2014 Commonwealth Games and silver in the 2018 edition, joined the Bharatiya Janata Party in August with her father Mahavir. Babita lost to independent candidate Sombir Sangwan in the Dadri constituency as a candidate in the Haryana state elections.

Hrithik Roshan voted in the UK poll for the sexiest Asian male of the decade!

Published

In an online poll released in London on Wednesday, Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan was elected the Sexiest Asian Male of 2019 as well as the last decade. The 45-year-old actor with box office hits like War and Super 30 topped the annual Sexiest Asian Male ranking compiled by British newsweekly Eastern Eye based on votes from film fans around the world, the heat generated on social networking sites and wider impact throughout the year. Roshan scored a double victory over the last 10 years as well as top of the overall ranking.

“I would like to thank everyone who feels so and has voted for me; I am flattered,” said Roshan, as he stressed that he did not view it as an “achievement”. He said, “Just a person’s looks are not relevant in the larger scheme of things. I don’t judge people by the way they look. Similarly, I don’t judge myself either by the way I look. “What is attractive in a person is his/her story, journey and the way that person has dealt with situations in his/her own life. Looking a certain way for my characters is just a part of my job, which takes a lot of effort and hard work.”

Bollywood actor and 2017 winner Shahid Kapoor came second, TV star Vivian Dsena ranked third, screen action hero Tiger Shroff debuting in the top 10 at No. 4 and British Asian pop star Zayn Malik finishing in the top 5 in 2019. The men featured in 2019 have been linked by the fact that they have all reached beyond their expectations and are looking to make a positive impact. That’s what sexiness really is about and why this list interacts with millions all over the world, Nazir said.

From Stomach Stapling to Broken Bones, Actors Who Went Extreme For Their Roles

Published

All it takes for us audiences to pass judgment on films is just seconds. All we forget is the fact that the cast and the crew put so much effort into making it. With the advent of technology and special effects, the actors have to put as much effort as possible. All they see when commoners look at movie stars is glamor and lots of money, but on the other hand, as they claim, the grass is always greener. While the life of the actor comes with perks such as money and fame, it also has a dark side that is likely to go unnoticed. Some actors go that extra mile to make it more credible to get into the skin of their characters. To do so, they are pushing themselves to such extreme limits that it sometimes takes more effort to actually emerge from it. Some characters latch so badly on the actors that they have a profound impact on the actors and their normal lives. Through crazy weight loss and gain, changes in lifestyle and physical training to distance from the rest of the world are just a few of the ways in which these actors go to extreme lengths to get into character.

  • Ranveer Singh

Movie: Padmaavat & Lootera

For almost any character he plays, Ranveer Singh is known to get to the deep end. He recently revealed that he had stapled the sides of his stomach to ace his position in Lootera and perform convincingly. He revealed that at that time he was quite new and that he was in a dilemma because he didn’t know how to feel pain. He did what he had to do to express the pain in a credible way. The actor said, “I didn’t know at that time when I was making that choice for Lootera. You operate from a place where you are not comfortable with your craft, a place of insecurity and nervousness and you tend to do a lot more to achieve a certain effect… sometimes to the degree of harming yourself. I wouldn’t do it now as I know that there is a more efficient way of doing it. Back then, I am thinking to myself: ‘I have never been shot, now I am going to get shot. So how am I going to depict a real sort of pain on screen?” He broke his shoulder while shooting for Bajirao Mastani’s fight sequences and he got emotionally involved with the character for Alauddin Khilji’s role. So much so, that to get into Khilji’s skin he separated himself and remained locked inside his apartment.

  • Rana Daggubati

Movie: Haathi Mere Saath (Yet to be released)

The upcoming trilingual of Rana Daggubati, Haathi Mere Saathi, is all set to go with shoots scheduled in Thailand and India on the floors. The actor will spend a fortnight training for his part with his co-stars— the elephants. Rana says, “Yes, I’ll need to do more for this film. I’ll be taking 15-20 days before the shoot to stay with the elephants in the jungle and get familiar with them before I start filming. At the same time, we are also doing a bunch of workshops because the story is inspired by two events, so we are trying to get as authentic as we can in the filming process,”

  • Heath Ledger

Movie: The Dark Night (2008)

Without the iconic name of Joker aka Heath on it, this list would be incomplete. For ledger, playing Batman’s arch-nemesis was not an easy feat. The actor locked himself away in a London hotel room for a month for this Christopher Nolan film, keeping a diary and experimenting with different voices and mannerisms before he came up with the character’s final vision. Obviously, the result was one of the most memorable villains ever, making him win Best Supporting Actor Oscar in 2009 as well. Tragically, as he passed away from an accidental prescription drug overdose a year before publication, he never saw his work on the silver screen. It was this role that drove him to his end, according to many claims.

  • Leonardo DiCaprio

Movie: The Revenant (2015)

The movie that broke the long dry spell of Leo and finally made him win the Oscar for Best Actor wasn’t the actor’s bed of roses. Unlike his character in the movie, DiCaprio slept in animal carcasses, ate raw animal organs, and in real life suffered severe hypothermic bouts! Okay, we can only say it was certainly a well-deserved win.

  • Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Movie: Raman Raghav 2.0 (2016)

Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one actor, beginning from ground level to present, who made a place for himself in Bollywood on the basis of pure talent. In the conventional sense, he might not be a commercial star, but he has the talent to act that not many can match, forget to compete. He’s someone who doesn’t think twice before taking on challenging positions. He was deeply disturbed by his portrayal as the brutal serial killer in Raman Raghav 2.0. He said, “Somewhere I could not tell what is right and what is wrong. Those lines in my life got blurred. Then what happens is that film gets completed but it stills remains alive in your life as it is said that ‘if you take something from the character then it also takes a lot of things out of your life.”
