It’s official: Her name now is Yami Gautam Dhar

Mumba– Actress Yami Gautam has added her filmmaker husband Aditya Dhar’s last name on all her social media accounts.

The actress is now ‘Yami Gautam Dhar’ on Twitter and on Instagram.

Yami married her ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’ director Aditya Dhar in June in a private ceremony.

The 32-year-old had then shared a picture from their wedding venue and said they were both private people and preferred to get married in presence of family and close friends.

On the professional front, Yami has her diary full with a packed schedule. Her line-up includes films such as ‘Bhoot Police’, ‘A Thursday’, ‘Dasvi’ and ‘Lost’.

The actress will play a crime reporter in Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s ‘Lost’, a kindergarten teacher, who takes children as hostages in ‘A Thursday’ and an IPS officer in ‘Dasvi.’

Khushali Kumar says Pratik Gandhi is a very observant actor

New Delhi– Actress Khushali Kumar has started shooting for her next film ‘Dedh Bigha Zameen’ opposite co-actor Pratik Gandhi in Jhansi.

The actress recently completed shooting of her debut untitled film with R. Madhavan and has reached the sets of ‘Dedh Bhiga Zameen’ directed by Pulkit.

‘Dedh Bigha Zameen’ is a family drama set in the small town of Uttar Pradesh. The plot revolves around the dignified struggle of a common man to win what is his.

Khushali shares her experience of preparing for her role opposite Pratik, who gained critical acclaim for his film ‘Scam 1992’.

She told IANS: “Pratik is very observant as an actor. Preparing with him was again fun and creatively satisfying. We understood each other’s way of timing and I think it works best when there’s chemistry off-screen because that way it reflects on cinema as well. I look forward to learn equally as much from Pratik.”

A T-Series and Karma Media and Entertainment production, ‘Dedh Bigha Zameen’ is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Shaailesh R Singh, and Hansal Mehta.

Talking about the film’s content, Khushali said, “The film is a heartland fiction. I’m fortunate to be exploring an unseen and non-quintessential side of storytelling which is content-oriented and socially relevant.”

Sonu Nigam offered his personal gym to Sahil Khattar

Mumbai– Actor Sahil Khattar says during the lockdown last year he had to go through a body transformation as preparation for a project. Since all the gyms were closed during the lockdown, singer Sonu Nigam offered the actor the use of his personal gym.

Sahil said “I had no idea how I was going to lose weight, because of the pandemic I had gained some. Being from a Punjabi family myself in the initial days like every other family, my mother also had started cooking different things every day. So, I indulged in a lot of Chole Bhature, Pakode, and all types of fried food.

“But, Sonu Sir came to my rescue as he offered his personal gym to me to train in. I haven’t spoken about it much but credit goes to Sonu Sir for being so selfless and for opening his home to me and my trainer as this was in the initial days of lockdown when the situation was so scary and uncertain.”

The actor plays the antagonist in the upcoming film ‘200 Halla Ho’ which releases on ZEE5 on August 20.
