MUMBAI: Bollywood actor Vidya Balan has said that she had struggled most of her life to enjoy a successful transition from small screen to Bollywood.
“Looking at my career graph, I feel nothing short of gratitude. And I’m glad that I can owe all this success to myself. It’s my love for myself that motivated me. My faith in myself and then, my family and friends helped me come this far in my career,” said the Kahaani actor in an interview.
The 38-year-old rose to fame with films such as Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006), Paa (2009), Ishqiya (2010) said there’s always been some external force that guarded her.
“At different points in my personal and professional life, there have been different ‘maseeha’ who came into my life and encouraged me to do better, and not give up despite all odds. It’s this journey that has helped me discover myself,” said the actor, who won the National Award for her film The Dirty Picture (2011).
When asked about why she follows selective people, the Bhool Bhulaiyya actor said, “Maybe that’s the reason I don’t follow too many people on social media. And, trust me, I don’t feel I’m missing on anything. In a way, it’s good that I don’t know what’s happening.”
Grapevine Bollywood: Kjo’s silence on SOTY2, has the film been put on the back-burner?
MUMBAI: Filmmaker Karan Johar opened up about the sequel of blockbuster Student Of The Year around a year back.
However, since then, he tends to keep a stiff upper lip upon inquiring about the venture.
If the grapevine is to be considered, the forthcoming endeavor would be helmed by Punit Malhotra. Also, it will feature actor Tiger Shroff as protagonist.
According to the details, Punit is busy with the scripting of the film. On the other hand, names of several star kids such as Jahnvi Kapoor top the list to be included in the cast.
A little birdie has also reported that Tigor’s beau actress Disha Patani will probably be the leading lady in the said venture. However, officials bite their tongues at the moment.
It is pertinent to mention here that KJo has been making pronouncements in abundance apropos his forthcoming productions incorporating Brahmastra starring actors Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan and Kesari starring actor Akshay Kumar.
Nevertheless, he stays silent on the front of Student Of The Year 2. Does it mean that the film has been put on the back-burner?
Grapevine Bollywood: Sher Singh will see Ranveer fill in the shoes of Akshay Kumar!
MUMBAI: The sequel of 2008 Singh Is Kinng titled Sher Singh would cast actor Ranveer Singh as the protagonist, reported sources.
If the grapevine is to be believed, the producer was compelled to alter the name as the director of the Singh Is Kinng Vipul A Shah declined to part with the title.
In this framework, a source quoted the producer Shailendra as musing: “While we had initially wanted the title Singh Is Kinng, Vipul Shah refused to part with it.
“I have been asking him to return it to me for the last five years. Then, I decided to pick another name, because, the name Singh Is Bliing had also been explored. So, a similar sounding title would cause confusion.”
Talking about Ranveer’s dexterity Shailendra further added that he could be B-town’s ultimate sardar as he has got all the characteristics required to portray a sardar like Akshay and Ajay Devgn do.
According to him the forthcoming flick would become the significant franchise in the industry. Bollywood does not have an iconic superhero.
Sher Singh will certainly meet the requirements of that character: “He does not have super powers, but will be an extraordinary human being.”
