letter from the editor

Top of the class There’s something about Taapsee Pannu that makes you take notice of her. That compels you to give that second glance. You realise that there’s more to her than what meets the eye. That beneath those Punjabi good looks lies a core of steel. And it’s this steel which has helped her evolve from being a virtual outsider to an actress capable of shouldering the fortunes of a film. It’s this steel which helped her survive the topsy-turvy fortunes of the South industry, where everything mostly revolves around the whim of the male stars. She not only managed to find her feet in the industry but also managed to learn to speak Tamil and Telugu fluently. It’s admirable really how North Indians like her, Tamannaah or Rakul Preet…

It’s good to hear that the film industry is gradually getting back to normalcy. Shootings have slowly started and so have promotions. We saw the lovely looking screen couple of Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani coming together to promote their forthcoming OTT release Laxmii. It was such a relief to see them sans masks. The sight filled us with that all-izz-well feeling… Ranveer Singh to play a double role in Cirkus pg 06 Ajay Devgn to play Lord Shiva in Adipurush? pg 06 RANVEER SINGH TO PLAY A DOUBLE ROLE IN ROHIT SHETTY’S NEXT Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh created a storm at the box office in 2018 with Simmba. Now we hear that they’re going to create mayhem once more with their adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Comedy Of Errors. It’s called Cirkus. The…

X FACTOR: VERSATILITY Ayush Mehra started out as a part of Shiamak Davar’s dance troupe but soon realised that he wanted to become an actor. He did a bit of theatre to hone his skills. Next up, he assisted on films like O Teri, Jai Ho, Uri: The Surgical Strike and a Dharma project, titled Raat Baaki, which got shelved. This opened up his prospects and introduced him to the world of OTT. He worked on several sketches for FilterCopy, Arre!, TVF and more before getting his first web series, The Zoom Studios’ Mom And Co. Then came Just Human Things’ Minus One, and Dice Media’s Please Find Attached. He also has Shaad Ali’s Call My Agent slated for an OTT release and Dice Media’s Operation MBBS 2 for the coming…

year of the tiger

Adarsh Gourav was born in Jamshedpur. He moved to Mumbai in 2007. He was interested in singing and learnt music at Suresh Wadkar’s Ajivasan Music Academy. He was the lead vocalist of Oak Island, a progressive rock band, which was even featurted on MTV Indies. But then My Name Is Khan, where he portrayed the teenaged SRK, happened and the acting bug bit him. Life is said to be hard for an outsider. Adarsh faced several rejections for every part he landed. He delivers the fact without the baggage of a sob story attached to it and says it’s all part of the game. His love for cinema wasn’t diminished by the rejections. Like a hopeless romantic, he lived in the hope of seeing his face on the silver screen once…

girl on fire

The most difficult phase in the life of an actor is the wait for the big break. Well, such was the case with Bulbbul actress Tripti Dimri as well. She began her journey in 2017 in the film Poster Boys alongwith Shreyas Talpade and Sunny Deol. She had a small role in the comedy which was all about being macho. She then waited a year to do her next project which was Laila Majnu directed by Imtiaz Ali’s brother Sajid Ali. While the film and her role were much appreciated by the critics, Laila Majnu didn’t perform well at the box office. She didn’t let that daunt her and kept her hopes high. Fortune favoured her when she was approached by Anushka Sharma’s banner Clean Slate films to play the…
