Parineeti on Tuesday took to Instagram to share details of her erratic three week schedule.

In her Instagram stories, she wrote: “Three weeks left for ‘Jabariya Jodi’ to release. Three weeks to start shooting for ‘Girl On The Train’. Saina Nehwal training going on simultaneously because I finish ‘Girl On The Train’ and start shoot immediately! Shifting my house this week.

“‘Jabariya Jodi’ promotions, ‘Girl On The Train’ prep, ‘Saina’ prep, house shift-all in three weeks! Guys I’m dying of nerves.”

Parineeti will be seen in the official remake of Hollywood thriller “The Girl on the Train” starring Emily Blunt.

She currently awaits the release of “Jabariya Jodi” along with actor Sidharth Malhotra. The film is scheduled for release on August 2. Directed by Prashant Singh, “Jabariya Jodi” is based on ‘Pakadwa Vivah’ (forced marriage), which was once rampant in Bihar.

‘Article 15’ gets an utterly butterly tribute

Mumbai– Actor Ayushmann Khurrana’s latest release “Article 15” is winning plaudits for its hard-hitting content, but the film has literally received a very soft tribute.

Dairy cooperative Amul on Tuesday took to their social media page and posted a new advertisement in which the iconic Amul girl is seen standing next to a toon version of Ayushmann’s cop avatar from the film, in front of a police jeep.

“Faraq laayenge, Makhan khaayenge,” read the punchline on the snapshot.

The actor, as well as the film’s director Anubhav Sinha, were touched by the gesture of the dairy brand, which has been famous for celebrating defining moments across various walks of life down the decades through its advertisements.

Sharing the image on Instagram Stories, Ayushmann wrote: “This is special.”

Anubhav Sinha shared that it was his dream to get an Amul caricature.

“A secret dream fulfilled. Thanks Amul,” he wrote on Instagram.

“Article 15” , which also features Isha Talwar, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra and Manoj Pahwa, aims to remind people about how Article 15 of the Constitution — which prohibits discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste, sex or place of birth — is constantly violated by society.

The movie traces India’s historic victory at the 1983 cricket World Cup. Ranveer plays the team’s captain Kapil Dev while Deepika essays his wife Romi.

This is Ranveer and Deepika’s first film together after their wedding last year. The couple has previously co-starred in “Padmaavat”, “Bajirao Mastani” and “Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela”.

Debina flaunts bikini body on TV

Mumbai– Small screen star Debina Bonnerjee wears a bikini on the television show, “Vish: A Poisonous Story” for the first time in her career.

Although many Bollywood actresses have flaunted bikini bodies on the big screen, the idea is not commonplace on TV shows.

“Actors need to be flexible when it comes to stories. I was nervous initially but I knew that the plot line of the show demanded this,” Debina said.

“My character in Vish Kanya is of someone who doesn’t care about anyone and that has to reflect in my acting. I think times are changing and people are more accepting, irrespective of the medium of storytelling. My fans have always supported me,” she added.

The show was recently launched on Colors TV and it also features Sana Makbul, Vishal Vashishtha, Krip Suri and Ayush Anand.

Lucknow– Actor Kartik Aaryan, who has just wrapped up shooting for filmmaker Imtiaz Ali’s “Love Aaj Kal 2”, found himself a new best friend in Himachal Pradesh.

Kartik on Monday shared a video on Instagram where he is seen playing with a school girl. He captioned it: “Playing around with my new bff.”

“Love Aaj Kal 2” also stars actress Sara Ali Khan.

“Love Aaj Kal”, a romantic-comedy film released in 2009, stars Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Rishi Kapoor in key roles.

Kartik is currently here to shoot for his next titled “Pati Patni Aur Woh”. The film is an adaptation of B.R. Chopra’s 1978 film with the same title.

The original film starred late actor Sanjeev Kumar, Vidya Sinha and Ranjeeta Kaur in the lead roles. The film is a comical take on extra-marital affairs.

Pooja relied on inspiring videos during rough phase

Mumbai– “Mohenjo Daro” actress Pooja Hedge says there was a time when she had no projects in her kitty. She found it very hard and would go online to find inspiring videos.

“There was a year when I didn’t have any work. It was very hard. I built myself and worked on my skills during that time. I would go on YouTube and find inspiring videos and something that I could connect to,” Pooja said during an appearance on MX Player’s web show “11 Mantras of Being Unstoppable with Ananya Birla”.

“When the opportunity came, I just grabbed it and I was prepared for that opportunity,” she added.

The former beauty queen made her acting debut with the Tamil film “Mugamoodi” in 2012. Two years later, she featured in Telugu movies before venturing into Bollywood with Hrithik Roshan-starrer “Mohenjo Daro” in 2016.

Any actor would love to have expectation behind him or her because that propels us to do better and deliver more on screen,” she said. (IANS)
