Woman-centric character was not easy: says Meera Nandan

Woman-centric character was not easy: says Meera Nandan

Meera Nandan, who is mostly seen in supporting roles in Mollywood, has bagged a full-fledged woman-centric role in the yet-to-be-titled Telugu movie directed by Viplav.

Though the actress is thrilled to have bagged a lead role, that too a strong character, she says the going has not been easy. "When director Viplav approached me for the role, I was excited, but only when I started shooting for it did I realise how intense my character was. Since the entire film was based on my character and traces her life from a 14-year-old village girl to a 32-year-old doctor, I was required to adjust my body language accordingly," says Meera, who has completed almost 90 percent of the shoot.

For Meera, the toughest part was shooting her scenes in a remote village. "The place was so isolated with no network connection, that all I wanted was to complete the shoot and get out of there. Since I was playing the central role, I was required to be in almost every scene; I was indeed very stressed out," says Meera, who has been paired opposite Telugu actor Jagapathy Babu, who plays her mentor in the film.

Meanwhile, on the Mollywood front, Meera has made her debut as playback singer in the recently released Mammootty starrer. "Singing Mazhayai was a dream come true for me. It was a melody and I enjoyed every bit singing it. I got the offer from V K Prakash while I was about to fly to Hyderabad for the shoot of my Telugu movie. But when he described the song, I thought of giving it a try and flew to Chennai the very day to record it," says Meera.

Prabhu Dheva is a dream come true : Ragini Dwivedi

Kannada actress Ragini Dwivedi surprised everyone with her Bollywood debut — a dancer number in Prabhu Dheva's R...Rajkumar. She says, "I have been getting offers from Bollywood for a while, but none of them were exciting. When I was approached for the Kaddu Katega number, I thought that this would be better than doing a full-fledged role. Also, debuting with Prabhu Dheva is a dream come true."

However, Ragini admits that she is looking at it as a stepping stone into B-Town. "I believe that if you have the potential, opportunities will come knocking at your door. It has been like that in the South for me, and I am hoping that it won't be very different in Bollywood," she says.

She has done films with almost all of Kannada cinema's A-listers, including Sudeep, Shivarajkumar and Upendra. She is also set to try her luck at the BO with a heroine-centric Kannada cop-thriller, which is due for an end of year release. "I'm really glad the way my career has panned out. I have a few good films with great characters in hand and more is in store," says Ragini.

Actors are viewed as objects today: Girish Taurani

Post 'Ramaiya Vastavaiya', Girish Taurani has been offered several scripts but he has yet to zero in on a suitable project. He says, "I think new actors like me should raise the bar. We should bring in fresh thoughts and also push the boundaries — be it looks, concept or the plot. However, I don't have any hang-ups when it comes to reading or listening to scripts. For me, the genre is not important. I should be moved by the story."

The actor says he has made a conscious decision to keep his identity separate from that of his production house, and adds, "If a well-scripted movie is being produced by my banner, then I will definitely act in it." He is also quite candid about how up-and-coming actors are viewed currently. "Today, we have started seeing actors as objects and not people. Agar six-pack mein ek pack nahin dikha, toh kya ho gaya? It is human to err. Ultimately, what matters is your talent," he maintains. Having said that, he is quite impressed with some of his contemporaries. "Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan are highly talented," he says.

Girish is currently busy promoting his film, which is being aired on television today, in different cities. "People have liked my work and also the film," he says. Interestingly, if there's one thing that finds its way into his schedule, it's pumping iron. "I just cannot do without it. The day I don't go to the gym, I feel very lethargic and also incomplete," he signs off.

I’m angry with myself: Shahid Kapoor

Shahid Kapoor's last four big screen outings might not have been received well at the BO, but, that hasn't disheartened him at all. He seemed in high spirits, cracked jokes and even shook a leg with fans during a promotional trip. Excerpts from a chat:

You have been coming to Ahmedabad frequently.
I never get time to explore the city! Everytime I'm here, has been for some promotional event or the other. The roads are so sprawling, I'd love to get my car here sometime! I love Gujarati cuisine and this time I've tried undhiyu, thepla and dhoklas — loved them.

You've shot in Gujarat extensively for R...Rajkumar.
I had no idea Bhuj was so beautiful! The beach in Mandvi with its sparkling blue water and silver sands was awestrikingly gorgeous. We were not supposed to shoot there, but Prabhu sir was so impressed with Mandvi, that we ended up shooting few sequences of the first song there. Some other parts of the films are shot in Gondal Palace.

You've always been known for your chocolate-boy image. Was it a challenge to do this role?
Breaking free from the chocolate hero image wasn't easy. Shooting for this film, was like entering a new world for me, it was very challenging. Prabhu sir asked me to bring something new to work, so I got this unkempt look and even tried to invent my dance/action moves just the way he'd have liked it. I was Prabhu sir's personal robot!

Akshay Kumar says, your co-star Sonakshi Sinha is his lucky charm. Will she be yours too?
I hope she turns to be my lucky charm! She's an awesome actor, good dancer and a lovely person. You've worked with different set of directors, yet you've not settled into any B-town camps. I like to work with different directors because it makes me comfortable. Having said that, I'm working with Vishal Bhardwaj sir after four years.

How do you deal with failure?
It feels bad when a film doesn't work, everyone puts in a lot of effort to make a movie. The positive side to failure — they make me work harder.

Do we see you turning director anytime soon?
I don't want to think of direction at this stage. It is a huge responsibility, Right now, I am channelizing all my energies to acting and want to reinvent myself.

So what's next?
I've two weeks all for myself before I start working on Vishal sir's film. And I'm looking at doing at least three more films before I take a break. I'm very angry with myself because I've not worked hard for last three years and so I need to compensate for that by doing more films.

You're linked with most of your co-stars. Does that affect you?
No, they don't affect me anymore because I take an honest approach by clearing the air about them. And thankfully, for R...Rajkumar, I and Sonakshi haven't been linked, so that's a blessing.

Aamir Khan on medication

Aamir Khan had to be on medication to keep nausea down for days when the actor was shooting for Dhoom 3's song, Malang.

The song has been shot at a huge height of about 80 feet and Aamir was to rotate 60 times in a minute for the same.

Aamir plays the role of a gymnast in Dhoom 3 and this was required. It is the first time the actor will be doing a thing like that. However, the perfectionist that he is, the actor willingly took it up without complaints and wanted to do it just the right way.

It took the team about 15 days to complete the shoot of the song and Aamir Khan was on medication for those many days. The medication was to help him keep nausea down. As he was at a huge height, taking turns, it is human to feel nauseated.

Also to make sure all is well, the makers of the movie specially called a doctor, who works with gymnasts, to be on the sets to help Aamir.

Dhoom 3 is a high on energy song. In terms of scale or budgets it is going to be massive. The song is around the central theme of gymnastic and will have 200 dancers in the frame.

Spokesperson of Aamir Khan says, "The song was being shot at about 80 feet from the ground. To do this, Aamir was on special medication to be able to perform at ease without major effects on his health"

Deepika chooses Salman over Shah Rukh Khan?

Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, who is on a high after delivering three back-to-back hits, is considered close and loyal to superstar Shah Rukh Khan. Not only did SRK launch her in 'Om Shanti Om' but also gave her the biggest hit of her career - 'Chennai Express'. Hence, it comes as a surprise that she is now making efforts to get closer to SRK's rival Salman Khan.

A DNA report says that the pretty actress went across to say 'hello' to Salman. She chatted with Salman for about half-an-hour. It was courageous for her to leave her hero SRK to meet his biggest rival, knowing that even after the 'truce' between the two Khans all is not fine between the two. Even director Farah Khan, who is a good friend of Salman's, refrained from meeting Salman as her hero SRK was on the set.

It seems Salman and Deepika have great admiration for each other. While Deepika has expressed a desire to work with Salman many times and will act opposite him in Sooraj Bharjatya's Bade Bhaiya, Salman too has been praising her a lot.

Want to choose my films carefully: Yami Gautam

Want to choose my films carefully: Yami Gautam

Actress Yami Gautam says she wants to be careful while choosing films so that she does not let down her audience.

Yami is now doing 'Total Siyapaa' after her first film 'Vicky Donor'.

"It's not really fair to say I am choosy. I think I am a newcomer and of course after getting such good response for the first film, it's very natural that you want to be more careful. As an actor I don't want to do something which I have already done before," Yami said.

"I do not want to do a role which is similar to the previous one or the concept and the genre. That is why I took time and I am glad this offer came. It justified the time that I have taken to sign my second film," she said.

In her previous film, the actress was seen falling in love with a boy from a different caste. In 'Total Siyapaa' too she plays a Punjabi girl, who falls in love with a Pakistani boy, played by Ali Zafar.

"This time I have progressed, have crossed the border. The story is completely different, you can't compare this with my first film. The character of Asha Singh which I play is different, it's a story based in London, and it's a love story between a Pakistani boy and an Indian girl," she said.

Yami thinks the script is the hero of the film.

"You can never predict a hit or a flop but it's about what you are happy doing as an actor. Every actor comes with his or her own mindset," she said.

On the competition in the film industry, she said, "There is competition, I am definitely aware of it, but if I work with pressure and shape my career according to others, that is not me. I am not from the industry, I come from another town and for me reaching here, I am very happy. When I go out and I see the genuine appreciation from the people, that's a big thing for me."

Makarand Deshpande was last seen in Sandalwood in director Srinivasa Raju's Dandupalya, in which he played gangleader Krishna, who rapes and kills people. The actor is getting an image transformation of sorts in the filmmaker's next, which is currently untitled, but was known as Basavanna earlier.

"Makarand plays a Shiva devotee in the film, clad in very little, just as sadhus at the Kumbh Mela are. Makarand has a key role in the film and is almost always seen with the hero ( Upendra). He speaks only in vachanas," explains director Srinivasa.

The filmmaker adds that the only apprehension Makarand had in taking up the role was if audiences would accept it, given that he played a very negative character in Dandupalya, while this one will be as good as it gets. "I convinced him that he was the only one who could pull off that look," adds Srinivasa.

"Peoples' perceptions are based on the premise of their reality and their facts. Those who consider me highly sensual know with certainty that nudity is meant for Goddesses (literally). And those who find me vulgar believe that the display of nakedness is distasteful. I say, to each, his/her own. I know I'm too good to be true and no one can change this fact but me," concluded Sherlyn.

Cricketers aren't new to injuries, and that's why Gulshan Grover was lucky to get advice from his cricketing buddies Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir when he recently sustained an injury to his left shoulder. The actor told us, "I had gone for a charity event to Dhanbad and had to drive from there to Ranchi to catch a flight. I fell on the stage and injured my shoulder.

There was no time to even remove the shirt and have a look. I jumped into the car and then I sustained another injury when the plastic bottle I was drinking from broke when the driver slammed on the brakes. I boarded the flight to Delhi nevertheless." It was in the flight that Grover met Sehwag and Gambhir, who discovered that the actor had sustained an injury. "When I saw them, I hugged them and they realized I was in pain. I told them that I thought I had dislocated my shoulder, as I could not move my arm. They were so sweet and since they deal with injuries, they advised me and suggested that I should not ignore it and seek immediate medical help," Grover told us.

The cricketers also made sure that the actor didn't have to face any trouble. "There was a special car that had come to take them and they offered me a lift. They gave me their numbers and numbers of their specialist doctors. They said that they would call the doctors too. My pain disappeared after their genuine concern. Sehwag even SMSed me after he left and enquired about my well-being," he told us.

When the actor finally got a check-up done, he found that his shoulder was not dislocated. "I have been asked to wear a sling, but I am not wearing it. The shoot for Nila Madhab Panda's film Kaun Kitne Paani Mein had already been delayed because Kunal Kapoor had sustained an injury to his left shoulder. If he (Nila) finds out about my injury, he will have a heart attack. I'll probably tell him later," he laughed.

Actor Tom Hiddleston, who plays the role of Loki from the superhero film 'Thor', is proud but shocked to see the character's popularity.

But the actor likes playing the role.

"It's fascinating to play the god of mischief. And he's such a broken character - bitter, jealous, grief stricken, angry, lonely and proud," he said.

Delhi girl Huma Qureshi was in town to walk the ramp for the grand finale of the North East Fashion Fest recently. Dressed in a traditional outfit, Huma charmed the guests with her smile and her twirly, happy walk.

We spoke to her before the show, when she told us, "I am super excited to be on the ramp. Nervous, too - I hope I don't fall off! I was never a ramp model and I considered these models to be these exquisite beings, so pretty and so thin. So now that I am getting to do this, I am very excited. Posing on head ramp with all the photographers clicking you - it's so much fun."

We asked her about her Diwali plans and she told us, "This time, I'll be celebrating Diwali with my friends in Mumbai. But I'll miss the Delhi Diwali atmosphere. I have very fond memories from Diwalis spent here. I had this one friend, who was my neighbour, and I used to go to her house every Diwali. Pura suit pehen ke, I used to sing all the bhajans also, so her mother loved me and my friend used to get angry because of this. But yes, Diwali in Delhi meant lots of mithai, lots of card parties and just full-on entertainment. I'll miss all that fun this Diwali."
