Deepika Padukone is making waves with the trailer of xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. She seems so much at ease in the franchise, holding her own against no less an international icon than Vin Diesel and winning over the Western audience with her swagger. Indeed, it’s her super confidence that helped her stand tall in front of Shah Rukh Khan in her first film, Om Shanti Om. And, mind you, she not only played his leading lady in the film, she also had to successfully pull off being a star from the ’70s era. That she managed to convincingly portray that speaks of her natural ease in front of the camera. Given her pedigree, she could have been India’s next sports star (those close to her say she’s still a…

SALMAN’S FAMILY UPSET WITH TWINKLE? Salman Khan may have kept quiet about Twinkle Khanna’s dig at him in her column in a daily where she wrote, “Alliance Wanted For One Of India’s Oldest But Most Eligible Bachelors…”. While the witty Twinkle did get trolled by Bhai’s fans for this, it seems the jibe has also left his family upset. In fact, Salman’s family was not happy when he recently collaborated with Akshay Kumar for his home production to be co-produced by Karan Johar. But Mr Khan is cool about it. Supposedly, he even asked his family to not make an issue about it. We like. AAMIR KHAN TO FATIMA’S RESCUE Aamir Khan is said to be protective towards his Dangal prodigies Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra. Recently, the girls were doing a…

‘abs’olutely yours

Born and bred in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut, Rahul Sharma had a humble beginning. In a bid to be self-reliant and not burden his parents, he became a home tutor at 17. The self-effacing youngster still believes he’s ‘a struggler’ even though he features prolifically in television commercials. That’s also perhaps, because his dreams are gigantic. “As an actor I want to make India proud!” he says of his desire to cut across continents. And while he’s waiting for his dream to take wings, fitness keeps the adrenalin rushing as do his fun bicycle stunts.…

hello brother!

“Chances like Dangal are rare. It’s something that will be difficult to live down. But at the same time it’s something I’ll cherish for a lifetime” Aparshakti Khurana’s portrayal of Omkar in Nitesh Tiwari’s Dangal has won him accolades. His phone has not stopped buzzing since the film’s release. “A few days back I had gone to Aamir sir’s (Khan) house. I told Nitesh (Tiwari) sir and him that I never imagined such a huge opportunity would come my way. I didn’t expect this kind of praise. I give credit to Aamir sir because no superstar would want to forego the spotlight for other actors or characters,” he gushes. He’s aware of the fact that his journey will get tougher from here. “I know chances like Dangal are rare. It’s something…

hum along

“WHILE RAHMAN SIR TWEETING ABOUT HUMMA WAS THE BEST COMPLIMENT I RECEIVED, THE WORST CAME FROM MY PARENTS. THEY TOLD ME I SHOULD COMPOSE ORIGINAL TRACKS AND NOT RECREATE OLD CLASSICS” When composer Tanishk Bagchi was approached to rearrange the iconic song Hamma hamma from Mani Ratnam’s Bombay (1995), originally composed by AR Rahman, he was understandably nervous. “I’ve always been inspired by Rahman sir. Every time I compose something, I feel his vibe. I’m his diehard fan. Hamma hamma is a cult number and to tamper with that was like playing with fire,” confides Tanishk. Featuring Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor, The Humma song from Shaad Ali’s Ok Jaanu has got mixed reviews. Sung by Jubin Nautiyal, Shashaa Tirupati and Badshah, Humma is the only song in the album…
