Actor Lara Dutta details

Actor Lara Dutta details

You help Akshay’s character with English in Singh Is Bliing. Two things he taught you in real life. a. To not take myself very seriously. b. That I can achieve great success by being disciplined. Prabhudheva’s films are always over the top. Were you wary of doing Singh

Is Bliing? Not at all! I was very excited because I have worked with many comedy directors like Aneez, Sajid, Priyadarshan and so on. But Prabhudheva has a very different approach to comedy and I got to learn a new kind of comedy which actually worked on screen. One great expectation you had from Bollywood that didn’t come true. I am not being diplomatic, but I had zero knowledge about the industry. I knew nothing about how Bollywood functions and it just happened to me. So there were no expectations. Which actor do you admire among today’s stars?

Ranveer Singh. Your favourite moment with your daughter, Saira. It’s when we wake up in the morning. She always wakes up happily, all excited to see me! I love our mornings. While competing in pageants with Priyanka Chopra, did you think she would become an international star? Yes, she was very focused from day one. Priyanka knew what she wanted. Back then, when we were competing, she wanted to enter Bollywood but she also knew that the Hindi film industry was not the only place where she wanted to make her mark. If you were told to spread a rumour about yourself, what it would be?

That I am the world’s best cook. In Don 2, you played the gangster’s moll. One Bollywood don you wish you had played a similar role for.

It has to be Satya ( Satya, 1998).

A simple yoga tip to destress. Child pose [kneeling, with your forehead touching the floor]. Get into this pose, stretch your back and just let go of everything.

Apart from tennis, Mahesh is good at... Being a father. In fact, he is a born dad. How did you spend your first paycheck?

I bought a second hand car. For an impromptu trip, what would be the first three things you’d pack? My toothbrush, a good book and a pen drive. Five-star rating for your film or five weeks at the box office? A five-star rating is overrated. So definitely, it’s five weeks at the box office. If you were to spend the rest of your life in one of these two, which would you pick: 1. on the roof 2. in the rain

In the rain. If you were to pick up a fitness DVD, which actress’s workout would you choose? It won’t be an actress, but I’ll pick the yoga expert Shiva Rea’s fitness DVD. The current Bollywood song you can’t get over. Dil Kare Chu Che from Singh is Bliing. My daughter sings it morning, evening and night.

Prachee Shah Pandya, a popular face on television, is a notable dancer too and holds a Guinness World Record for performing 93 kathak spins in a minute. She recently returned to Mumbai after an international dance tour organised by the Government of India for which she performed in Jordan, Qatar, Palestine, Egypt, USA and Canada. What makes her feat spe cial is that after having over 250 solo kathak performances to her credit, she received a standing ovation after every show in all the countries and made India proud.The artiste says, “Dance is a prayer that makes people rise up in appreciation. Applause for kathak from foreign ministerial delegations and the crowd abroad seems to be greater and more honest.“ A few months ago, she also kick-started the Independence Day celebrations in New Jersey and Canada. Prachee, who has acted in some films including ABCD 2 that released this year, states dance and acting are both close to her heart and help her connect with the audience. “ Acting is like food and dance is my breath. Both are essential in this journey called life and complete me,“ she sums up.

Celebs reveal their Diwali shopping plans

DAISY SHAH Apart from buying clothes and accessories, I am planning to buy some stuff for my house. Also, my relatives will be coming down from Gujarat to celebrate, so I will buy something for them too. 
I start planning the Diwali gifts months in advance because I normally source it from abroad. I look forward to this every year because we genuinely put in effort to send out pretty, classy and thoughtful Diwali gifts. I also handpick all the items that go in the festive hamper. As for me, I definitely love shopping for new clothes and we always buy one new silver item to add to our collection; I guess we feel it's auspicious. 
I'm going all easy when it's coming to gifts this year. I'll be home after three years so I am planning to take my parents and my sister out shopping. 
I have been travelling to various places for work and whenever I get little time to spare I utilise it for my shopping. As I will be working during the festive days, my mother and I have decided to complete the shopping in advance and keep all the Diwali gifts ready. Of late, I have been addicted to online shopping so I have bought a few gifts for my friends and I am sure they are going to love it. 
Since I'm in Dubai for my film's shoot, I'm doing my all my shopping for Diwali from here. I'm shooting with Jackie Chan, so I'll also buy something Indian to gift him. I love to shop here, which is why I carry hardly anything when I visit this place and on the return to Mumbai, I end up bringing suitcases filled with for family and close friends. 
I haven't really planned my Diwali shopping yet. I am traveling to Warsaw (Poland), so I'll be doing a lot of Diwali shopping from there for myself and will also bring some interesting stuff for friends and family. 
I am busy promoting my film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo which releases on Diwali so I haven't got any time to shop. I am planning to buy diyas and candles and fairy lights online, this year. I also keep picking up stuff from airports when I travel, so yes, this year it's kind of a Diwalion-the-go!

The team of Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein has come up with a novel idea to pay an ode to Charlie Chaplin. Since the film's title refers to cocaine, the makers decided to convert the lovable Hollywood legend into an evil one to personify the drug and the destruction it causes, in the title track. Anand Tiwari (of Go Goa Gone fame), will be seen as the English comic actor in it along with Shweta Sharma.
Pleased with the compliments for his act, Anand says, “When producer Karan Arora and the video's director Siddhant came up with this idea, I jumped at it. I've been a huge fan of Charlie Chaplin since childhood. I tried my best to look like him. In fact, I even grew a moustache for the song instead of opting for a fake one.“ Naseeruddin Shah, Amit Sial, Subrat Dutta, Auroshikha Dey , Disha Arora and Manasi Rachh along with Anand play principal roles in the investigative thriller that is directed by Manish Shrivastav and produced by Karan Arora.
Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein, produced by Picture Thoughts Production, releases November 6.
