The Bollywood Actress Katrina Kaif, who has highlighted in some stroke movies like “Dhoom 3”, “Ek Tha Tiger” and “Phantom”, trusts that if bolstered rightly, women driven activity movies can work in Bollywood.
“I believe if we have right kind of support, a woman-centric action film really works. It will be a complete transformation and something radical,” she said as she talked about her craving to show up in a part that obliges her to do a few genuine activity, in a meeting here.
Inquired as to whether she wishes to do action movies which have a female lead, she said “I would love to do action films… I recently saw ‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘ with a character like the one Charlize Theron did. When I saw that, I was telling Bosco (choreographer) that someone has to do something like this.”
“I really wish to do something like this.”
In times when Bollywood stars like Priyanka Chopra, Irrfan Khan, and Anil Kapoor are tolerating global ventures, does Katrina harbor dreams for Hollywood?
“Why not… If it is a right film, in right time and in the right place.”
For the present, Katrina is anticipating the arrival of “Fitoor”.The movie is slated to release Feb.
Shahid Kapoor: Happy Birthday To A Versatile Performer
Shahid Kapoor made his feature film debut as a shy chocolate boy with the movie Ishq Vishq, and the actor has not looked back since then. Shahid took on diverse roles ranging from a deranged druggie in Udta Punjab to a morally upright Rajput king in Padmaavat. Son of renowned actor Pankaj Kapoor and Neelima Azeem, Shahid hails from a family with acting in its blood. Shahid Kapoor has grown in the Hindi film industry on his own merit, establishing himself with his choice of tricky and versatile roles.
Shahid Kapoor turns 39 today. Let us have a look at some of his most versatile roles in recent years.
1. Haider (2014)
Haider was an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Shahid Kapoor starred as Haider Meer, a student returning from Aligarh Muslim University to his home in Kashmir, only to find his father missing. Haider starts out on a journey with his friend Arshia, a journalist, to find out what happened to his father. What begins as an ordinary search, spirals out of control and drags Haider into a web of conspiracies involving terrorist entities. Haider showcases an individual’s journey from sanity into the depths of insanity. Shahid was splendid in showcasing Haider’s slow descent into madness.
2. Udta Punjab (2016)
When Udta Punjab released, it courted controversy due to the nature of its content and plot that hinted at the highly prevalent drug abuse problem among the youth of Punjab. The censor board had to step in and direct the filmmakers to make a total of 89 cuts to the film. Shahid Kapoor starred as Tejinder Singh, also known as Gabru, who has a penchant for abusing drugs and writing songs that glorify violence. In an unfortunate incident, Gabru accidentally shoots an accomplice which lands him in prison. This causes Gabru to reflect on his actions and how his songs mislead the youth of Punjab to use drugs. Gabru has a change of heart and decides to use his fame to spread word about the negative effects of drugs. Shahid’s portrayal of Gabru as an energetic singer and his portrayal of a man who has a change of heart was brilliant.
3. Padmaavat (2018)
Shahid Kapoors played the role of one of India’s celebrated Rajput warrior kings, Maharawal Ratan Singh in Padmaavat. Shahid was spot on in portraying Raja Ratan Singh, being mellow when required and showcasing the famed Rajput bravery when required. Be it handling a sword on the battlefield or giving inspiring speeches to his followers, Shahid was able to do it all with a flourish. Padmaavat was a movie filled with powerful acting performances from Shahid Kapoor.
4. Kabir SIngh (2019)
Kabir Singh was Shahid Kapoor’s latest movie and a remake of the Telugu cult movie Arjun Reddy. Shahid Kapoor was able to showcase the journey of Kabir Singh, a house surgeon, who loses his way by abusing alcohol and drugs due to a break up with the love of his life. The breakup completely derails Kabir Singh’s life leading him to cut corners and regulations in surgeries and abuse his relationship with his best friends. Shahid’s performance as Kabir Singh was compelling and his acting was of excellent quality.
Here is wishing this extremely talented actor a very happy birthday and here is looking forward to more amazing movies from Shahid Kapoor!
Baaghi 3: Dus Bahane 2.0 Inspires Troll Fest
Baaghi 3 is an upcoming Bollywood movie and the third in the Baaghi franchise, that would be released soon in March. As part of the movie promotions, the filmmakers remade the popular song Dus Bahane from the movie Dus as a tribute to the song and titled it Dus Bahane 2.0.
Once Dus Bahane 2.0 which starred Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor released, people on social media did not take it well and a majority of them felt the original song should not have been tampered and instead, should have been left alone. However, Twitterati did not spare Dus Bahane 2.0 and what followed next was a hilarious collection of memes and trolls.
Here are some funny memes about Dus Bahane 2.0. These memes focus on the particular lyric from the song which says “I looked at you, you looked at me aur hogayi mushkil” which means “I looked at you, you looked at me and things became difficult.”
I looked at you
You looked at me

While these meme’s do make fun of Dus Bahane 2.0, it should not deviate from the fact Baaghi is a successful franchise .

Dia Mirza Breaks Down At Jaipur Literature Festival
Jaipur Literature Festival is an annual literary festival which takes place in Jaipur. It is said to be the world’s largest free literary festival. Every year, eminent personalities attend the festival to speak about current affairs and political trends.
Actress Dia Mirza attended the event this year and was speaking about climate change. However, the actress broke down into tears in the middle of her speech. Upon being asked the reason for the tears, Dia Mirza said she was affected by the tragic demise of basketball legend Kobe Bryant, who passed away in a helicopter crash.
The actress delivered a message about the importance of being empathetic and said, “Don’t hold back from being an empath. Don’t be afraid of shedding your tears. Feel it, feel the full extent of everything. It’s good. It gives us strength. It does. And this is not a performance.”
When offered a tissue to wipe her tears, the actress refused by saying, “I don’t need paper.” This particular statement attracted trolls on Twitter, which compared her to a desi version of Greta Thunberg and pointed at how the actress did not mind attending the event in a petrol vehicle but refused tissues.
