Armaan-Ralhan

Actor Armaan Ralhaan made his acting debut in the Ranveer Singh-Vaani Kapoor starrer “Befikre”, and was recently seen in the OTT anthology “Ajeeb Daastaans”. Armaan says he had a few offers after his debut film of 2016 but they were all similar to his “Befikre” role of Anay, an investment banker who is set to marry Vaani Kapoor’s character.

“What happened was that there were one or two films after ‘Befikre’ that were very similar to what I had done in the film. I wanted to do something that gave me an opportunity to show a different side of myself. There were one or two films that were supposed to happen but they got delayed or pushed and then finally Shashank Khaitan’s thing (refers to his segment of ‘Ajeeb Daastaans’) happened,” Armaan told IANS.

“Ajeeb Daastaans” is anthology of four stories, and Armaan appears in the first segment, directed by Shashank Khaitan and co-starring Jaideep Ahlawat with Fatima Sana Shaikh.

“Ajeeb Daastaans was supposed to come out last year but because of the pandemic everything got delayed. So, one extra year got added because of the pandemic. Things just worked out that way, but I do wish to reduce the gap and do more work,” he added.

Armaan says his constant effort is to look for variety in roles. “I got into the movies to play different characters. That is the fun — to play people that are different from you. So, for me is to play someone who is not me, to me it is important to be versatile and do different kind of roles,” he claimed.

“Sometimes you may play similar roles in your career but the idea is to keep changing and doing different things,” he summed up.

 After her comeback with ‘Dil Bekaraar’, veteran actress Padmini Kolhapure has sung the new version of the iconic song ‘Yeh Galiyan Yeh Chaubara’.

The label released an endearing image depicting the ideal mother-daughter bond from childhood to the day of the young girl’s marriage.

Speaking on the same, Padmini says, “The emotions that a mother goes through when her daughter gets married is not something that can be put in words. From happiness to sorrow to a feeling of emptiness, one feels so many things at one time. ‘Ye Galiyan Ye Chaubara’ is a rendition of all those feelings”.

The song which was originally sung by Lata Mangeshkar, is from Padmini’s highly acclaimed film ‘Prem Rog’ which was directed by Raj Kapoor.

Describing the experience of working on the iconic track, the actress says, “It was like an emotional roller coaster to sing the same song and I am so proud of the way it has shaped up. There is no bigger honour than being able to give voice to a song that was sung by Lata Ji. I am excited to see how the audiences react to the video as well.”

The re-created version of the song is presented by Saregama and Dhamaka Records and will hit the airwaves on December 6.
