Katrina-Kaif-and-Ranveer-Singh

“Sooryavanshi’ director Rohit Shetty recently drew heavy criticism for saying that, considering the upcoming film is packed with high-voltage action featuring machomen Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, and Ranveer Singh, no one would even look at his film’s heroine Katrina Kaif.

While Shetty’s comment sparked a storm on social media and #ShameOnYouRohitShetty started trending on Twitter, Katrina on Monday came out to sportingly defend her director on Instagram. She claims Shetty has been misunderstood.

“Dear Friends and Well-wishers… I normally do not comment on media reports or articles… But in this case, I feel a comment made by Rohit Sir has been taken out of context and is been entirely misunderstood. I am referring to the comment as reported that Rohit Shetty said, ‘No one would look at me in the frame, as there are three boys there and a blast happening”‘, this is not what was said.

“I mentioned that I had blinked in the shot, and Rohit sir said, ‘there are four people together in the frame and a bomb blast happening, no one will notice you BLINKING.’ Even, inspite of that, we still did one more take. I share a very warm equation and friendship with Rohit sir and have always enjoyed our discussions on everything from cinema to my character and, more importantly, he has always been there as a friend for me. This has been taken entirely taken out of context. Hope you all have a great day,” Katrina wrote.

“Sooryavanshi”, a cop drama, will release on March 24.

Parineeti-Chopra

Actress Parineeti Chopra, who essays badminton ace Saina Nehwal in the biopic “Saina”, says admits being apprehensive about how people will react to her in the role.

“It’s a huge responsibility to essay someone like Saina Nehwal on screen. She is a legend and I was very scared about how people will react,” she said.

She is, however, happy with the response to the poster. “I’m overwhelmed with the love we are getting from all over the world. The film is a celebration of the unending spirit that lies in each woman,” said the actress.

Director Amole Gupta can’t stop praising his lead star: “Saina has inspired millions of women out there and is a true example of a strong female icon in the country today and Parineeti has put a lot of effort to represent Saina authentically.”

Talking about the film and Parineeti playing her, Saina said: “Everything is quite surreal. What I have achieved in life is all due to the constant support of my family. It has been my huge honour to play a sport I love and put my country on a pedestal while achieving my dream. Parineeti is a fabulous actor and we both connected so easily when we met. I wish the team all the best for the film and hope everyone leaves the theatre with dreams.”

The film is slated to hit screens on March 26.

Actor-Arjun-Kapoor

Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor feels it is crucial for women to stand up for themselves and their dreams, and shatter stereotypes.

Arjun will converse with these girls, share anecdotes from his life on how women can do anything they set their mind to.
