Huma Qureshi, Sharib Hashmi go out lunching with Mumbai’s dabbawalas

Mumbai– As the Tarla Dalal biopic ‘Tarla’ started streaming on Zee5 on Friday, Huma Qureshi, who plays the lead role, and Sharib Hashmi, her on-screen husband, stepped out in style to promote the film with dabbawalas.

Dressed in a flowing pink outfit, and sporting a Gandhi topi, which is a part of the dabbawala uniform, Huma carried a big tiffin in her hand. Sharib opted for a green shirt and enjoyed posing and interacting with the dabbawalas. The two then settled down for lunch with the dabbawala.

‘Tarla’ is a captivating biopic that chronicles the extraordinary life of home cook-turned-popular TV show host and cookbook author Tarla Dalal, who rises from humble beginnings to attain national renown.

The film chronicles Tarla’s unwavering determination and ambition, as she rises to the top of the culinary world, leaving a flavourful legacy for generations to come.

Directed by Piyush Gupta and co-produced by Ronnie Screwvala, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and Nitesh Tiwari, the film also stars Bharati Achrekar, Amarjeet Singh, Rajeev Pandey, Purnendu Bhattacharya and Veenah Naair.

Post ‘Tarla’, Huma will be seen in ‘Pooja Meri Jaan’, which also has Mrunal Thakur, Vikram Singh Chauhan and Vijay Raaz in lead roles.

Helmed by Navjot Gulati, the thriller is about a young woman named Pooja, who’s being stalked by an unidentified man.

Sara Ali Khan takes an auto ride for gym session, surprises bystanders

Mumbai– Doing exactly what ‘nepokids’ aren’t supposed to do, Sara Ali Khan, fresh from the success of the mid-budget ‘Zara Hatke Zara Bachke’, was spotted enjoying an auto-rickshaw ride along with a friend for her gym session in Bandra.

Dressed in a gym top and shorts, sporting slippers and carrying her handy bag, Sara not only posed for the paparazzi, but also waved to the other auto-drivers and fans, who were surprised to see their favourite actress travelling like a commoner.

On the work front, Sara will soon be seen in four highly anticipated releases — ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’, ‘Metro In Dino’, ‘Murder Mubarak’ and an untitled film with Jagan Shakti.

Backed by Dharma Productions, ‘Ae Watan Mere Watan’ is a biopic based on the freedom fighter Usha Mehta, who started an underground radio station in Mumbai, called the Congress Radio, during the Quit India Movement of 1942.

In the few months it was around, the radio station left a big mark as it greatly assisted the freedom movement by broadcasting uncensored news and other information banned by the British Raj. The film will be released on Prime Video.

Aamir Ali on ‘The Trial’: Suparn completely changed the kind of roles I’ve done so far

Mumbai– Actor Aamir Ali, who will be seen in a new avatar in ‘The Trial – Pyaar Kaanoon Dhokha’, thanks director Suparn Varma for ‘completely’ changing the kind of roles he has done so far.

Aamir will take on a serious inspector’s role, who is loyal to the law and eager to bring unlaw to justice. He talks about how he broke away from this image with Suparn’s vision.

“After FIR, no one thought of casting me as a cop, maybe they had an inhibition that I’ve played a cop on TV that is still being watched and loved. However, hats off to our director, Suparn Varma, for completely changing the kind of roles I’ve done so far.”

“I have a very serious role in the show but Suparn created such a chill atmosphere on the set that it felt like we were on a picnic. I think that’s the best way to work on any set,” he said.

‘The Trial’ follows the journey of Noyonika as she embarks on a journey that truly makes her stand the test of time after her husband’s betrayal.

The gritty courtroom drama stars Kajol as Noyonika Sengupta, along with Sheeba Chaddha, Jisshu Sengupta, Alyy Khan, Kubbra Sait and Gaurav Pandey in key roles.

Produced by Banijay Asia, it will stream from July 14 on Disney+ Hotstar.
