href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 12 Mar 2021Arjun Kapoor in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar

Arjun Kapoor is all set to be seen in film-maker Dibakar Banerjee‘s upcoming film, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar opposite Parineeti Chopra, and from the looks of the trailer, he seems to have given a solid performance in this one. Director Dibaker also agrees and shares that Arjun wanted to do the film as a befitting reply to all his naysayers.

Dibaker says:

I could immediately see when Arjun came to meet me about Pinky (his character’s name in SAPF) that he was hungry. Hungry to find new dimensions in his work. Hungry to prove the naysayers wrong. Hungry to eat up all the criticism in Bollytown through his action. I went with hungry.

He goes on to add:

It’s the hungry who end up changing things. Arjun changed himself for this. The dialect training. The boot camp with the cops. The workshops in Delhi and Haryana. The eighteen hour days. The endless rehearsals and discussions around the script with me and my researchers and creative team. We saw the change. Everyone will see it on the 19th.

Produced by Yash Raj Films, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar is a raw and edgy suspense thriller that pits Arjun against Parineeti Chopra and the trailer sure is interesting. It is set to be released theatrically on March 19th. I sure am excited to see Arjun and Parineeti bowl us over in this one!

Malaika Arora Suits Up In Camo-Print And Looks Sexy AF

href=”author/nelly-wadia”>Nelly Wadia , 02 Mar 2021Malaika Arora

Kareena Kapoor Khan gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on February 21st. And, we all know how close the girl-gang is to one another. So it comes as no surprise that they all got together to celebrate the birth of Taimur’s younger sibling. Malika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Karisma Kapoor and her daughter all made a visit to the Khan’s new house in the city. Needless to say, Malaika Arora was turn up. Scroll on to see more details on what the star wore to visit baby Khan.

Here’s a closer look at Malaika Arora’s camo-print suit:

Malaika Arora is one of Bollywood’s best trend setters. We always see her on the top off her sartorial game. For this outing the star wows us with a matching camo-print, denim suit. The jacket features large lapels and lots of gold, zipper detailing. She layers her jacket over a white bralette and styles her look with matching, cropped jeans. The jeans feature multiple gold zippers and pockets and 3 gold buttons at the hemline of the skinny jeans. To me what really makes this look a stunning, spectacular one is all the gold detailing throughout the look.

Malaika elevates the look further with a shiny, gold sling, bucket bag and gold pointy pumps. The combo of pointy pumps paired with cropped jeans is definitely one to bookmark. They just up the elgance level and also add perfect posture to the human form. Malaika Arora leaves her hair straight and open and opts for brone eye shadow and muted brown lipstick. Contoured cheeks, filled-in brows and a chislelled jawline complete the glam factor of her look. She finishes out her look with a black facemask.

Never before has this been explored in Indian cinema, marking a new wave in cinema.

Directed by Dr. Pragabhal, the teaser had me captivated from the get to thanks to the amazing background score and the mesmerising cinematography. This adventurous action thriller is born out of the filmmaker’s love for off-road racing and his close association with it. Muddy is going to be a story that will see an arc of rivalry, revenge, family drama, humour and adventure.

Yuvan, Ridhaan Krishna, Anusha Suresh and Amit Sivadas Nair are the lead artists in the film and Harish Peradi, I M Vijayan & Renji Panicker will be seen in pivotal roles.

This is true of how meticulously the stunts and racing sequences have been shot as well. His vision was to have adventurous artists who were willing to invest the necessary time and energy, so no dupes were involved in the filming.

The makers have also not held back on the props used and we are set to see three different patterns of mud races, all choreographed by the director in real locations.

I sure am super excited to witness this never-seen-before film on screen very soon! What about you guys?

Rakul Preet Makes A Classy Entry In Her Cosy Polo-Necks

href=”author/nelly-wadia”>Nelly Wadia , 17 Feb 2021Rakul Preet

It looks like Rakul Preet is about to have an extremely busy 2021. The star will be seen in 2 Tamil films. 1 vigilante film called Indian 2 and a science fiction film called Ayalaan. In addition to this, she also happens to have 4 Hindi films in her kitty. Attack opposite John Abraham and Jacqueline Fernandez, Sardar and Grandson opposite Arjun Kapoor, Mayday alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Ajay Devgan and Thank God opposite Ajay Devgan and Siddharth Malhotra. The list doesn’t end there, as Rakul will also be seen in 2 Telugu films. Check and an untitled film directed by Krish.

Let’s take a closer look at Rakul Preet’s cosy airport OOTD’s:

Rakul Preet wears a warm and snug cable knit sweater. The sweater features long sleeves and a polo neck. The star keeps it simple and wears them with a pair of blue jeans that are ripped at the knees. She accessorises her look with plain white sneakers and the Chanel Red/White Deauville canvas tote bag. I generally prefer oversized bags when travelling because they can hold pretty much all the essentials you may need. She leaves her hair open and naturally wavy, filled-in brows and kohl-lined eyes add to her glam. A black facemask to observe precautions when travelling completes her look.

Rakul Preet

For Rakul Preet’s second appearance at the airport, the star opts for another snug and cosy look. This time she wears a black, midi dress with a polo neck. The dress is sleeveless and has a pencil shape silhouette and what I love about this silhouette is that it simply takes on the shape of the body. This particular dress would be perfect for work and can easily transition into an outfit for after-work drinks. She styles her look with red sneakers that match her Chanel tote bag.  The star pulls her hair into a tight low ponytail and finishes off her look with round reflector sunglasses.

Arjun Kapoor Shows Us That Pink Can Be A Man’s Colour Too

href=”author/nelly-wadia”>Nelly Wadia , 04 Jan 2021Arjun Kapoor

Arjun Kapoor and girlfriend Malaika Arora bought in the New Year with Malaika’s family in Goa. From the looks of it, they definitely had a great time together. Malaika even shared a photo of the two of them to her Instagram profile. She captioned it saying “It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new year… 2021 #eternallygrateful.” Everything about the happy colouples vacation together was candid. It’s clear as day that they have an impeccable friendship and chemistry.

Meanwhile, on the work front, he is awaiting the release of Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar opposite Parineeti Chopra and Sardar & Grandson opposite Rakul Preet Singh. He is currently filming Bhoot Police, a comedy horror movie alongside Saif Ali Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez and Yami Gautam. Arjun is also expected to kick off shooting for Ek Villain 2 with John Abraham, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria.

Here’s a closer look at Arjun Kapoor’s relaxed ensemble:

It’s evident that Arjun Kapoor is a chill dude. Is it the way that he speaks that gives it away? Facts!, Is it the fact that he dresses in his comfiest best always? Hell yes! Truthfully, he always just casually steps out in luxury ensembles that come together effortlessly. This time is no different, Arjun wears a bubblegum pink sweatshirt from the Anti Social Social Club. He’s easily breaking the stereo type that men never wear pink or men look feminine in pink. We associate the colour pink with women and hence men seem to steer clear of the colour. Here, Arjun Kapoor casually proves that most of us have been wrong for a very long time.

He styles his sweatshirt with a pair of black Dsquared2 Icon shorts that cost approximately 14 thousand rupees. Gentlemen, slides are always better than flip-flops, they simply are a more classic option. Arjun wears Off-White‘s Virgil Abloh‘s black rubber slides. He tops off his look with a black Under Armour face mask.

Arjun Kapoor Steps Out For Shoot After 4 Months And Says ‘We Have To Adjust To The New Normal’

href=”author/avya-sharma”>Avya Sharma , 11 Jul 2020

Arjun Kapoor

Four months back India went into lockdown and pulled the curtains down on the Hindi film industry. With social distancing being the standard rule now, the unlocking period is seeing the industry slowly getting back to operations. And, Arjun Kapoor is one of the earliest celebs to get back on the sets and he is favouring for work to resume. The actor stepped out to work after four long months.

Arjun says—

I think every one of us will have to adjust to the new normal and slowly start resetting our lives. Things have changed forever but we will all have to work, we will all have to support our families. So, everyone concerned will make their environment as safe as possible so that all are protected and we resume some sort of normalcy on our work front. I shot for the first time after 4 months.

The actor reveals that he was a bit nervous before starting the commercial shoot. However, after looking at the safety measures being taken there, he became absolutely fine.

I have to admit that I was a bit jittery at the start but seeing all the safety measures in place, I became absolutely fine in no time. Naturally, the initial days of us stepping out to work again will be a little difficult for all of us psychologically. But today, I’m more confident of shooting and being around people on the sets because I have seen the extensive preparations that people are taking to ensure we have the highest safety measures on the sets.

Arjun has a number of shoots queued in the coming days. He says “It felt very good to resume work and I’m looking forward to my next shooting days”.

‘I Wish To Pursue Both Acting & Singing With The Same Passion’ — Aurangzeb Actress Zara Khan

href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 19 Jun 2020

Zara Khan

When you come from a family that is prominent in movies and sports, it is not surprising if you develop an interest in either one of the fields. While her paternal side of the family was legendary in squash, actress and singer, Zara Khan seems to have tilted towards her maternal lineage who belong to the films. Her great-grandfather, Jugal Kishore Mehra, was Bollywood icon, Raj Kapoor‘s, uncle. Her great-grandmother, Anwar Begum, starred in the first ever ‘Heer Ranjha‘, while her grand-mother Nasreen Mehra and mother Salma Agha were well-known actresses and singers of their time.

Zara, made her debut alongside Arjun Kapoor in Yashraj Films’, Aurangzeb. She then went on to star in the short film called ‘Khoj’, based on a 19-year-old girl’s struggle with the consequences of an NRI arranged marriage. It went on to be premiere at Cannes Film Festival‘s Short Film Corner and also reached the Oscars. We caught up with her to talk about her musical career in films with the song, ‘Kya Karte The Saajna’ in the movie Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhaan, her recent single, Khudse Zyada and ‘Jogan’, and how both films and music are equally important to her.

Excerpts:You come from such illustrious families on both sides and have grown up among celebrated personalities from various fields. Was acting and singing something you have always wanted to pursue?

I feel blessed to have been born in such a family because I got to share the artistic genes. I guess acting and singing is something I enjoy doing the most. It comes very naturally to me, so yes it’s something I’ve always wanted to do .

Given the talented family you come from, what is the one advice you were given when it comes to acting?

My mom has always told me to be honest to the characters I get to play. There should be no cheating or shortcut to that, you always need to be as real as you can while relating to the emotions. Obviously, at times, we cannot relate to a few emotions since we haven’t been through that particular feeling. But what I try to do is, I make myself believe that I am this character a 100 percent. That helps in adapting, understanding and thinking like the character I play.

After doing the feature film, Aurangzeb, you did Khoj, a short film that won you a lot of praise. What made you choose that film?

Firstly, I believed in the cause of the film. I felt that since this is something that’s very much real and happening in Punjab with over 50,000 cases registered, it was my duty as a human being to bring this matter to light. I have to thank my director, Kajiri Babbar, for wanting to come up and make a short film on such a subject. Secondly, it was the challenge of looking the part that really got me excited. It warms my heart till date thinking that I got a standing ovation at BFI for this film and my performance. For me, that was the biggest validation as an actor.

When it comes to singing, you have the latest single ‘Jogan’ and ‘Khudse Zyada’ along with the song, ‘Kya Karte The Saajna’, from Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhaan. What’s the thing you like most about playback singing?

Well, Khudse Zyada was like a baby step into the singles zone and it was an amazing journey because I got so much appreciation and a warm welcome from all the music listeners. Kya Karte The Saajna was my first ever play back song in a movie and that was also a dream come true.When the song plays in the movie, the whole cast is is present in the scene and it was one of the funniest scenes in the film. Just recently, my second single, Jogan dropped. Even though we dropped only the audio because of the lockdown, it has crossed 5 million + streams. It’s one of the best feelings an artist can have. All this appreciation and love has really pushed me to want to make more music.

Pursuing both acting and singing can be quite a task, and you handle both gracefully. But, is there something you will always be more inclined to?

I honestly can’t pick one, because both of them are a very strong parts of me as an artist. I would always want to pursue both equally and with the same passion.

Arjun Kapoor Appreciates A Fan For Caring For Stray Animals Over A Surprise Zoom Call

href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 16 Jun 2020

Arjun Kapoor and his fan, Vibha

The COVID-19 lockdown has especially been a tough situation for the stray animals on the road who are left to fend for themselves. A lot of celebrities and personalities have been speaking about how it is our responsibility to care for them in these tough times. Even otherwise, many people are actually stepping out and making sure to feed and care for them. This shows that there is some ray of hope for these animals.

In our latest episode of Some Good News India, we shine light on many such citizens from all across the country who are quietly doing their bit. One such person is 22-year-old Vibha Tomar, who is an animal lover and a veterinary student from Delhi.

Through her organisation, Oscar For Life Foundation, she feeds almost 350 dogs every day. We wanted to send her some love and surprised her with a video call from one of her favourite actors — Arjun Kapoor. Arjun spoke to Vibha about the great work she is doing and said that he salutes her for how selfless and thoughtful her actions are. He encouraged her to continue doing what she does best and wished her all the luck! Vibha was clearly stoked and was thrilled that Arjun encouraged and supported her in her endeavour.

This interaction surely really did warm our hearts and you shouldn’t miss it!

Arjun Kapoor Trolls Katrina Kaif As Mango Season Arrives, Katrina Gives A Befitting Reply

href=”author/avya-sharma”>Avya Sharma , 26 May 2020

Arjun Kapoor and Katrina Kaif (Source: Instagram | @arjunkapoor, @katrinakaif)

If there is one Bollywood star who has mastered the art of trolling his friends and colleagues (obviously in jest) on social media, it has got to be Arjun Kapoor. Recently, the 2 States actor posted a picture of a mango on his Instagram and said it reminded him of Katrina Kaif.

As we all know, Katrina has given a whole new meaning to eating mangoes in her commercial for a popular mango drink. Referring to this, Arjun pulled her leg asking if she wanted a ‘Slice’ (which is the name of the juice brand) and wrote, “Hello friends, mango season is here… aur aam dekh ke yaad aaya… @katrinakaif, would you like a SLICE? ”.  To this, Katrina replied saying, “Yes please I would like a few slices.” He then jokingly responded, “ You organise na for us actually Katrina… I promise to eat them with as much love as u… hehe.”

Arjun and Katrina are great friends and rarely miss a chance to troll each other. Recently, Kat took to her social media to share a video of her doing the dishes at home during the lockdown. Arjun hilariously referred to her as ‘Kaantaben 2.0’ and even invited her to his home to wash the dishes.

On Koffee With Karan, Katrina had said that she has been friends with the actor for a long time now and knew him even before he stepped into the film industry. She also revealed that Arjun and Varun Dhawan initiated an ‘I Hate Katrina Kaif’ club together.

However, last year, Arjun shared a picture to clarify that the ‘I Hate Katrina Kaif’ club was transformed into a fan club. His caption read, “So @varundvn & I are starting a new fan club #WeLoveKK aka @katrinakaif !!! Here we are seen awarding her, for absolutely no reason whatsoever… PS – the Dalmatian trophy Katrina’s holding represents our faithful friendship kyunki yeh dosti #firstclass hai !!!”
