The new motion poster of ‘Soorma’ has been dropped, featuring Taapsee Pannu as Harpreet - a dreamer and an achiever. Looks like the lady has unleashed her athletic side for her upcoming movie. Shared by Pannu herself on her social media, the poster gave a glimpse of the 30-year-old actress, donning the hat of a sportsperson. Pannu wrote, “For my undying love for sports and my country. Meet Harpreet aka Preet - who believes in pushing the boundaries. Know her story on 13th July.” The ‘PINK’ lady has undergone vigorous training to perfect her portrayal of the character. ‘Soorma’ is a biopic made on the life of hockey legend, Sandeep Singh. Singh is regarded as one of the world’s most dangerous drag-flickers, masters in a peculiar scoring technique in hockey. He was even graced with the nickname ‘Flicker Singh’ for his drag speeds of over 145 km/hr. Popular singer-turned-actor Diljit Dosanjh will essay the role of the hockey legend. Helmed by Shaad Ali, the film is set to hit the theatres on July 13.

Much to the surprise of her fans, actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan joined Instagram on the day of her appearance at the Cannes Film Festival this year. However, another A-lister is still missing from the social media and that is Kareena Kapoor Khan. But the lady when enquired about the same reportedly gave a straight ‘No’ to the idea. According to the reports, Bebo made it clear that she is a very private person and would never like to share her pictures and videos herself. She has however asserted that though she is not there online but still her life is on the web and she likes it that way. After marrying the Nawab of Pataudi, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan became part of the Pataudi family. She not only made friends with Saif’s children Sara and Ibrahim but also developed a bond with his sister Soha Ali Khan. According to reports, when Kareena was recently asked about what she thinks of her sister-in-law, she reportedly said that if there is anybody in the family that she is in awe of, it is Soha. Kareena stated that she never understood the conversations that Soha and Saif have when they go out on dinners together and the only thing she can talk to Soha about is shopping and gossips which makes her feel small. Kareena also reportedly added that if there is anybody in the family who they all turn to when the lady of the house Sharmila Tagore is all worked up, to control the situation; it is none other than Soha.

Actress Sanya Malhotra has spent the past two years preparing for three big projects. She recently completed Junglee Pictures’ 'Badhaai Ho' and also the first schedule of Vishal Bhardwaj’s upcoming drama, 'Chhuriyaan'. Sanya will also be seen in Ritesh Batra’s 'Photograph' along with Nawazuddin Siddiqui. The young actress is elated that she is getting such good opportunities. She says, “I’m working with great directors and actors, and I’m getting to learn so much about the process of acting. I’m extremely grateful for these experiences.” For now, Sanya is just going to ride the wave of good luck and focus on doing a variety of roles. She adds, “I have stopped making career plans; they never seem to work out for me. So, I’m going with the flow, enjoying each day of being an actor. I don’t want to restrict myself and want to work in all genres of cinema. Perhaps I can do a romance or even a horror film soon.”

Shahid Kapoor: Now I understand my privilege, responsibilities as an actor


img

He has completed 15 years in the film industry, is still receiving accolades for his role in 'Padmaavat', has signed his first remake film and he is going to be a father for the second time. Life's busy for Shahid Kapoor, who calls himself a "different person". Shahid Kapoor said "It's been a journey of a young kid who didn't know what it meant to be an actor. And now I understand my privilege and responsibilities and I am thankful for it. I'm also proud of what I've achieved and I feel the need to grow and evolve." Shahid, who made appearances as a background dancer in the films 'Dil To Pagal Hai' and 'Taal', made his acting debut in the 2003 romantic comedy 'Ishq Vishk'. From his portrayal of a teenage student that earned him the Best Male Debut at an award function to portraying hard-hitting roles in films like 'Haider' and 'Udta Punjab', or as the restrained king in 'Padmaavat', he is counted as one of Bollywood's most bankable actors. Shahid said that his life's journey would "probably be a book". "It has been 15 years in this industry and I've given a large part of my life to it, so I want to maximize my effort for this job. Yeah, I'm a very different person today," Shahid said. The actor said the drive within him makes him unstoppable. "People who are young, somehow seem to lack the drive and don't seem to be excited or charged and lack momentum. There are people who are much older, who have immense drive which is internally found. It comes when you're truly passionate about something. "The fire is within and comes from the need to achieve something. If you have no need or desires, there won't be anything to be excited about," said Shahid, whose next films are 'Batti Gul Meter Chalu' and the Hindi remake of Telugu movie 'Arjun Reddy'. Shahid said that it was the first remake he was doing. "It's a very different journey. I've actually seen the film and loved both the lead actors and all the actors in the film; so there is this huge responsibility of a film that has achieved cult status and we want to make it as well if not better." Shahid, who will step into the shoes of Telugu actor Vijay Deverakonda for the emotional drama, is confident it is going to be an amazing character to play. "I fell in love with the character the moment I saw it and I am quite nervous about it and excited at the same time," he said. It's not just his professional life that is keeping him busy, but he is also excited to be a father again. He already has a daughter named Misha with wife Mira Rajput. "I think having a child makes you re-look at everything. Over the years you get used to things... The minute you have a child, the parent within you jumps out and you feel protective and want to give them the best life," he said. "I just want to be there for my daughter and my second child! I want to spend my life with them. I want to know about their life. I hope that I'm a good influence. I hope I'm not stuck up and can allow them to fly. They have their own identity and destiny... Your job is to be there when they need you, that's it," said Shahid. With life moving so perfectly, is Shahid ever scared of losing out on the fame and popularity that he has right now? "No, I would not say that I'm afraid of losing out on fame and popularity. I'm afraid of losing out on opportunities to work with the best filmmaker or get the best opportunities or not being able to maximize my potential, or not being able to reach out to people that I could have. Fame and popularity are a by-product. The idea is to worry about what you do as opposed to what happens because of what you do," he said.

Ranbir Kapoor reveals his worst addiction since the age of 15


img

Ranbir Kapoor who is the news for a whole lot of reasons is getting a lot of appreciation and accolades for his portrayal as Sanjay Dutt in the upcoming biopic titled ‘Sanju’. From his transformation to his voice modulation, fans are stunned to see how the once termed a “chocolate boy” is playing the most badass character on the big screen with such perfection. Busy with promotions of the film, Ranbir Kapoor recently revealed during an interview with a magazine about his addiction to nicotine. He professed that he had quit smoking for four months but started rolling cigarettes again last month, however in minimal quantity. Ranbir confessed that he is scared about this relapse as he was addicted to nicotine since he was 15 years old. The ‘Sanju’ actor also averred that he took trips to Austria to get rid of this addiction. This doctor he went to gave him injections in his ears, to help him quit smoking the first time, because he thought he didn’t have the willpower to give it up on his own. He also boldly spoke that vaping isn’t working for him either as leaving one habit for another isn’t really possible and eventually it’ll just come back more ferociously. Kudos to Ranbir for coming out in the open with such a strong revelation about his life!

Police to question actor Arbaaz Khan in IPL betting scam


img

HANE: Police on Friday summoned actor Arbaaz Khan for questioning in connection with an IPL betting ring. His name came up during the interrogation of notorious bookie Sonu Jalan, aka Sonu Malad, who was arrested on May 29 by the anti-extortion cell of the Thane crime branch. TOI reported on Thursday + that a Bollywood biggie was close to Jalan (41), whose betting activities are spread across India and abroad, notably Gulf countries such as the UAE; Pakistan, Sri Lanka and South Africa. Police say they have photographic and electronic evidence to prove that Arbaaz and Jalan are more than “just friends”. An officer said Jalan, in his statement, has mentioned several prominent names who bet huge amounts on certain IPL teams and players. The officer said Jalan’s statement is being corroborated with his hand-written notes in his personal diary, which police possess. Also, the name of a Pakistani politician has come to the fore, an angle cops are probing. “Arbaaz placed bets during one of the past IPL seasons through Jalan,” a senior officer associated with the probe said. “Subsequently, there was another huge transaction between them.” In those days, Jalan was working with a big bookie who went by the name Junior Calcutta. Apparently, Khan was blackmailed into paying crores, the threat being that his gambling habit would be exposed. But all this will be probed once Khan gives his side of the story,” the police officer said. While a police source said Khan may have paid over Rs 3 crore to Jalan, inspector Pradeep Sharma, who is leading the probe into the IPL betting racket, told TOI, “Nothing concrete can be said on this as of now. We need to corroborate it with evidence and statements of those who are linked with the racket.” Despite repeated attempts by TOI to get his version, Arbaaz didn’t return calls or respond to text messages. “Our initial estimate of the turnover of the betting scam run by Jalan is Rs 1,000 crore. His network could involve nearly 3,500 punters,” said Sharma. The police said Jalan travelled to Sri Lanka during an international tournament in 2016 and a probe is on to find out if there was any betting-linked match-fixing at the time. The anti-extortion cell of the Thane crime branch busted the latest IPL betting racket on May 16 by raiding a Dombivli flat and arresting three bookies: Gautam Savla, Nikhil Sampat and Nitin Punjani.
