Deepika, Ranveer give twist to silhouette challenge
Mumbai– Actress Deepika Padukone has uploaded a fun video on her social media page on Thursday, in which she along with her actor-husband Ranveer Singh recreated the popular silhouette challenge but ended it in a witty way.
For the uninitiated, the silhouette challenge gained popularity on social media with people transitioning from a regular self into a beautiful silhouette with a red backdrop. Late singer Paul Anka’s classic track “Put you head on my shoulders” plays in the backdrop of the person in the video.
The couple started the video with a romantic scene and eventually transitioned into the silhouette with a similar backdrop. However, instead of keeping up the regular sultry tone, the two playfully danced in circles to a different track in the second half of the video.
Deepika, captioned the video, “Should we Ring-a-Ring-a-Roses instead @ranveersingh!?”
Deepika and Ranveer will soon share the screen space in the upcoming film 83′. The actor will essay the role of former cricketer Kapil Dev in the Kabir Khan directorial, which chronicles India’s iconic 1983 World Cup triumph.
Nimrat Kaur: Having a career abroad comes with price
Mumbai– Actress Nimrat Kaur, who has been part of international projects such as “Homeland” and “Wayward Pines”, says that due to her involvement outside Bollywood, she doesn’t get a lot of films to choose from in India.
However, the actress adds that she has never had to remind anyone of who she is.
“I am not in circulation as I might have liked to be regularly. I may not get to choose from a big spectrum of parts which otherwise I would have got. But it has never come to a point where I have to remind people about who I am,” Nimrat told IANS.
She adds that she might not be offered the kind of roles that she wants, but that’s the “price” she has to pay for a career abroad.
“They might not offer me exactly what I am looking for, but that’s part and parcel of life. I have a career abroad and here. That comes with a price,” she says.
Talking about the kind of work she wants to take up, Nimrat says: “I cannot think of a genre I will not attempt, even if I fail at it. I am looking for all kinds of work. The more you do, the more you want to. It’s a bottomless pit where you can keep playing different people.”
Nimrat will be seen in the film “Dasvi”, which also features Yami Gautam and Abhishek Bachchan.
