When it comes to fashion and style, Deepika Padukone puts the best foot forward. The model-turned-actress feels it is good to keep up with the times, but suggests fashion trends should not be followed blindly.
Bollywood fashionista Sonam Kapoor has called upon her friends, family and fans to conserve water. She has lent support to a campaign Pani Bachao Life Banao.
A three-month-long corporate social responsibility initiative by 92.7 BIG FM, the campaign aims to create awareness about saving water in the country.
“People should follow simple tips at home to save water, like using buckets for bath instead of showers, not keeping tap open with water running and many such small vigilant steps that contribute to creating larger difference in the society,” Sonam said in a statement.
Daughter of Ira Bhaskar, a renowned professor of film studies, actress Swara Bhaskar admits her understanding of cinema is better thanks to her mother, who wants her to watch a lot more regional and international works.
"My mother is always complaining that I don’t watch enough films, enough regional and international cinema, and that I don’t take advantage of her amazing library or take her knowledge very seriously," Swara told IANS over e-mail.
Nevertheless, the young actress believes her mother is a "great teacher and a scholar par excellence".
"Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" stars Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone are ready to take the small screen route to promote their forthcoming romantic film. They will shoot together with the cast of the serial "Pyaar Ka Dard Hai".
The duo will shoot with the cast in Mumbai Monday.
"They are doing this for the promotion of their movie. They will be coming to celebrate Pankhuri's (lead female character's) birthday," said a source.
The special episode, featuring the Bollywood stars, will air May 27.
The popular chocolate hero of the 1980s, Rishi Kapoor says he is "a competent actor" and would like to try out character roles and that he doesn't want to be typecast as a typical onscreen dad.
He wowed everyone when he donned the garb of ruthless underworld lord Rauf Lala in "Agneepath" remake.
"Not trying to be modest but I have tried to experiment with my look in different roles. I don't want to do standard father's role, I want to do characters. I would like to do characters and bring something on the table myself," Rishi Kapoor told IANS.
