Actor Anupam Kher says he was overwhelmed with emotions on meeting actress Neetu Kapoor without her husband, late actor Rishi Kapoor.

Anupam met Neetu Kapoor in Chandigarh, where she is shooting for her film “Jug Jug Jeeyo”. After the meeting, he took to Instagram to open up about the emotional meeting, and look back at their meetings in New York, where Rishi Kapoor received treatment.

“Dearest @neetu54!! Meeting you last night in Chandigarh without #RishiJi triggered off so many memories of us together in New York. Our shared tears made the bond of those moments stronger. These pics are a reminder of how #ChintuJi had a larger than life persona,” he wrote along with a string of pictures of himself with the couple.

“I am so happy that you are working. You have made him the happiest person by doing so. We, your friends are always there for you. Remember “There are some relationships which are like a pause button on a tape recorder. They always start from where you left them!” Love and prayers #Memories #Pics #ChintuJi,” he added.

Rishi Kapoor breathed his last on April 30. He had been battling leukemia for the past two years. He was 67.

Neetu is currently shooting for “Jug Jugg Jeeyo”, which also stars Anil Kapoor, Kiara Advani, Varun Dhawan and YouTube sensation Prajakta Koli, who makes her Bollywood debut with the role. “Jug Jugg Jeeyo” is being directed by Raj Mehta, who shot to fame directing “Good Newwz” last year.

Ananya-Panday

Budding star and happening star kid Ananya Panday started her career only last year, but she has already bagged four films and several ad-films. She considers finding a fan-base in such a short time is motivational rather than a matter of pressure.

“One of the the interesting parts about expectation and pressure is these things motivate me. I have a lot of gratitude for that because it is just the beginning of my career, I am just a few films old and I have managed to build a fan following. When I go to public events they come up to me and ask me to say a dialogue or ask for a selfie. I just love all of that! They expect to deliver my best and nothing could be more motivating than that!” Ananya told IANS.

“I chose to become an actor, so I am living my dream. For an actor, we always need audience, and when we have the support from them, what else do we need?” smiled the actress, who was launched by Karan Johar last year opposite Tiger Shroff in “Student Of The Year 2”.

Since then, actor Chunky Pandey’s 22-years-old daughter has been on a dream run. In about a year and half since her debut release, Ananya has already had two more releases — “Pati Patni Aur Woh” co-starring Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar, and the digitally-released “Khaali Peeli” opposite Ishaan Khatter.

She has also appeared in several ad-films, and worked with Anurag Kashyap is one of them. In her own words, there are many exciting projects lined up for her, too.

“I am very excited that there is a variety of projects in my pipeline. On one hand, I am doing Shakun (Batra)’s next with Deepika (Padukone) and Siddhant (Chaturvedi) and our Goa schedule was so much fun! I am so looking forward to that (film) because I love both of my co-stars. I am also doing Puri Jagannadh sir’s directorial with Vijay Deverakonda and that is a different world altogether,” she said.

“I am so excited about the variety I am getting! (I) cannot wait to share everything with my fans!” laughed Ananya.

With so much already happening in her fledgling career, what would be her dream role? “I want to try something in hardcore action now!” she replied.
