Akshay sir has always backed me to deliver on screen and I’m grateful for his trust and vision for me as an artiste.”
Incidentally, both Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ and Raksha Bandhan’ have social themes at their core.
Calling Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’ the first blockbuster of her career, she mentioned, “Thanks to Akshay sir and I hope we deliver a solid hit again with Raksha Bandhan. Akshay sir and I have a unique tuning to deliver some meaningful entertainers. Both Toilet and Raksha Bandhan deliver a message that one can take home and also watch such films with the entire family. I love family entertainers because it appeals to the widest possible quadrant of movie-watchers in India.”

Mumbai– Bollywood actor Ali Fazal, who plays Guddu Pandit in the webseries ‘Mirzapur’, is currently busy with the shoot of season 3 of the show. In a new development, the actor has hired a new trainer to work towards his character’s physicality.

Ali has decided to change a lot of things in his appearance.
Commenting on the same, Ali says, “I dont think I have it in me to be stifled inside a gymnasium at all times knowing how big the world is and the word fitness is. I experiment a lot to keep myself engaged. For me, it has to be like going back to play school. Even on sets during action sequences, I am like a kid in an amusement park, just trying have some fun – choreographed fun.”
The actor further mentioned that Rohit has been a great addition to his world view.
“He is full of surprises and raw talent and most of all a good heart. So I will try and learn as much as I can”, the actor added.
But, all the physical work hasn’t taken Ali’s focus off the craft of acting, “Baaki, acting bhi hai, (there’s acting as well) which is most important and sometimes in the fight for might and best body, we often forget that we are not in the sculpting business, but the moulding one (that’s if we are exchanging metaphors here),” he concluded.
Apart from this, Ali will next be seen as the lead in Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Khufiya’ with Tabu and another Hollywood flick, ‘Kandahar’ where he will be sharing the screen with Gerard Butler.
Mumbai– Bollywood diva Kareena Kapoor Khan has given out some of the most unforgettable characters such as Naaz in ‘Refugee’, Poo in ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…’, Geet in ‘Jab We Met’ and Pia Sahastrabuddhe in ‘3 Idiots’ in a career spanning over two decades. The actress agrees that she is in constant competition with herself as there is a pressure to deliver.
Asked if she feels the pressure to up her own game with every character she plays, Kareena in a conversation with IANS said: “There is always pressure to deliver because otherwise It is not possible to last 22 years in the career. The idea is to constantly keep trying to change yourself on screen and keep it real off screen. Just doing different characters and enjoying the process of acting is what I love.”
The 41-year-old actress, whose latest release is ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, an adaptation of the iconic film ‘Forrest Gump’, confessed her “love” for her profession.
She added: “I just love acting. It is a part of my being but I try to make a difference to do a film which will not be similar to the rest. I am working with Aamir Khan for the third time but ‘3 Idiots’, ‘Talaash’ and ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ are completely different. You can’t even put all the three character into one stream. They are completely different people. I think that has always been the aim to kind of making differently.”
Talking about the film, Kareena spoke about the fears of comparison between ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ and Tom Hanks’ movie.
She said: “It’s an official adaptation. Atul Kulkarni has written it I think that it’s so beautiful. adding a lot of more layers and emotions to the film. Comparisons can’t be there because it is an official adaptation. It’s in a different language… We’ve adaptated and made it to suit the Indian audiences two different actors there and here. I have a feeling people are just going to love it.”

When asked about who should be in jail for taking wrong scripts, Arjun replied: “I would like to get out of jail now. I have selected quite a few wrong scripts.”
Karan then asked Arjun which are the three actors he would like to go on a road trip with.

Karan with a laugh said: “He takes care of social media.”
