With the fact that lead roles are not falling into her lap these days, the actress is happy with the fact that she has a special song and dance appearance in ‘Aakrosh’ which, Urvashi says, is not ‘an item song’ but a situational track that takes the narrative forward. This number voiced by Shreya Ghoshal is a celebration track about a group of friends having fun with the bride-to-be and preparing her for what lies ahead in life.
“Yes, this is for the first time that I would be seen in a ‘ghaghra-choli’. I had some real good fun shooting for the song, more so because it is such an integral part of the film. Otherwise typically when a song is just placed in the film for an item appearance, it sometimes stands out like a sore thumb. Thankfully, this is not the case in Sasural Munia”, adds Sharma. shi who had made her debut in the thriller NAQAAB.
Bollywood queen and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has three promising releases this year, ‘Robot’, Action Replayy’ and ‘Guzaarish’. Among these Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Guzaarish’ has high expectation quotient with Ash pairing with Hrithik Roshan with whom she has delivered two megahits in ‘Dhoom’ and ‘Jodha Akbar’. It narrates the story of Ethan (Hrithik), who is suffering from limb paralysis and his relationship with his caretaker and married nurse, Sophie (Aishwarya).
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is all praise for Aishwarya and Hrithik. He said, “I want to thank Aishwarya. She’s my jaan. I get terrible excited when I make a film with her. She’s very very special. And I have never enjoyed with any other actor as I have with Hrithik just for the talent he has and for the kind of person he is.”
The actors too are more than overwhelmed to be associated with the project. “GUZAARISH is more than a film to me. It’s a manifestation of one man’s vision and that is Sanja Leela Bhansali. It has changed my prospective on the world. It has affected my life. 30 or 40 years from now I will look back and smile because I had the opportunity to do this film. Some films are made for commercial reasons and some must be made for the world to see and that’s the kind of film GUZAARISH is,” said Hrithik.
Talking about her career graph rising even after marriage, Aishwarya said, I’m so blessed. It’s so wonderful that my faith has been kept in the professionals that I have worked with. Directors like Shankar, Mani Ratnam and Sanjay Leela Bhansali came to me with scripts. They didn’t say ‘Now you are married. What should we do with your role?’ None of the directors thought that.”

Director Karan Johar is known for his light romantic movies and family drama. Now, the director is all set to venture into the new territory of action film to fulfil his late dad’s wish to go for the remake of blockbuster ‘Agneepath’.
And guess who is going to play the legendary character of Vijay Dinanath Chauhan which was originally played by Amitabh Bachchan? It is none other than the flambuoyant Hrithik Roshan.
KJo says, “By remaking this film, I will be living up to a promise I made to my father. Amit uncle’s version had one of his finest performances, he even won the National Award for it. The movie is the quintessential underworld film that has become a point of reference for several filmmakers. Vijay Dinanath Chauhan, the character that Amit uncle played, is etched in everyone’s memory. My father (Yash Johar) often wondered why this film didn’t get the kind of commercial success it should have. He constantly told me, ‘Karan, we must remake “Agneepath.’” Somehow, I couldn’t see myself directing the remake. But when my assistant Karan Malhotra, who was my backbone during ” My Name Is Khan”, said he would like to revisit this subject and recreate the magic, I instantly agreed to produce it.”
The remake will definitely come with some changes. The character of Krishnan Iyer MA, played by Mithun Chakraborty, will be done away with. Though it has not been confirmed, but rumors have it that Priyanka Chopra will play Hrithik’s love interest and Nana Patekar will play the role of Kancha-cheena made famous by Danny Denzongpa.
However, Karan refuses to confirm the rest of the star cast. “At this point, we have Hrithik on board for Amit uncle’s role. I will announce the other names shortly,” he says, and adds, “Duggu has heard the script and he loved it. He is as thrilled about this film as Karan (Malhotra) and I are.”

Though Sri was glad at the experience, she was equally nervous as she saved herself from tripping twice on the ramp.
Asked about Sridevi’s nervousness, Lulla said: “As far as I think, it happens sometimes when you walk the ramp after a long time. It was fantastic that on my 25th anniversary Sridevi walked the ramp and so many people actually made it to the show,” she said.
Sridevi too admitted that walking on the ramp was hard for her. “It was great but at the same time very hard for me,” she said.
The excitement was no less when hot and happening Sonakshi Sinha who was seen in a demure avatar in ‘Dabangg’ with her sarees came out on the ramp with killer denim jeans and frilly top, coupled with a hat at the show of Narendra Kumar, fondly called Nari’s association, with clothing brand Killer.
The one time designer, Sonakshi was completely at ease as she even broke into a slight dance enjoying the music. Talking about her stint in fashion designing, the actress said, “That unfortunately has taken a back seat. Designing is a very demanding job and so is acting, so if I try doing both, I will be nowhere, better I stick to one.
“My mom really wants me to launch a brand, but nothing anytime soon. I have studied it, invested so much of time. No education goes waste, so definitely sometime in future.”
So, here we are with a click from Sridevi and Sonakshi with their dazzling rampwalk.
