Mumbai– Bollywood actress Parineeti Chopra, who is currently enjoying the response to her recently-released movie “Uunchai”, feels honoured to have worked with the towering talents of Hindi cinema like Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, and Danny Denzongpa.

The actress recently shared a reel on her Instagram which shows her enjoying some behind the scenes moments of the film. In the reel, Parineeti can be seen enjoying the picturesque locales along with Anupam Kher and Boman Irani as she roams around and poses at different spots of the shooting location.

“Uunchai”, directed by Sooraj Barjatya,revolves around friendship and learning about life has proved to touch everyone’s heart with utmost ease.

Parineeti had earlier said: “‘Uunchai’ is going to be one of the most special films of my life as I got the opportunity to work with such legendary actors of our industry. Everyday I would be super excited to go on the sets and learn something new from these talented actors. Their passion, their dedication, their commitment towards the craft only motivated me to not only be a better actor but a better person as well.”

Huma Qureshi has stopped taking advice from people on what projects to pick

Mumbai– Actress Huma Qureshi has had a professionally fulfilling year so far with diverse roles at her disposal. While she portrayed a female Chief Minister in ‘Maharani 2’, ‘Double XL’ saw her playing a plus size woman smashing stereotypes.

She raised the mercury with her sultry portrayal of the titular character in the recently released streaming movie ‘Monica, O My Darling’. The actress is quite naturally over the moon given her slate of 2022, and this is because she now purely goes by her gut feeling on what project to give her nod to.

Talking about how the year has been for her, the actress said: “It’s been a great year. At some point in my career, I stopped taking advice from people on what projects to pick up and went with my gut instinct. What speaks to me is what I agree to do. And the love and the success helps in giving me faith that I am headed down an exciting journey.”

She said that it’s a stroke of serendipity that all these shows or movies have been released in the same year. “Every actor in today’s times chases versatility. In fact, that is imperative for an artiste so that they don’t get bored of what they are doing. ‘Maharani’ is in its second season, but obviously the character’s graph this time was stronger. She is more confident in her skin and is more comfortable with who she has become,” she added.

‘Double XL’, co-produced by her brother Saqib Saleem, is a deeply personal movie for her.

She further mentioned: “It’s about society’s pressure on each of us to submit to their norms and rules. And Monica is probably a character I personally enjoyed every bit of.”

He did not share the name of his pet on his post.

On the work front, Amitabh’s latest release is ‘Uunchaai’ directed by Sooraj Barjatiya. It also stars Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, Danny Denzongpa and Parineeti Chopra.

Naveen Kasturia calls Abhishek Bachchan a ‘very giving actor’

Mumbai– Actor Naveen Kasturia, who plays Victor in the recently released second season of ‘Breathe: Into the Shadows, has most of his scenes with Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan in the streaming show. The actor recently spoke about his camaraderie with Abhishek and how the latter is a very giving actor, who gives room to his co-actors to explore their characters and the story.

Elaborating on it, Naveen said, “Most of my scenes are with Abhishek, at least 90% of them. Initially, I was very nervous, even during the reading sessions, I asked Mayank (Sharma) about Abhishek and Amit (Sadh), as I had always seen them on screen, but this was the first time I was working with them. But as we started working together, things got better and fell in place.”

He mentioned the one quality of Abhishek that makes him stand apart from other actors. “I think Abhishek is a very giving actor, he gives you your space, and off camera he is very warm and friendly. From the very beginning of the shooting, he started talking to me, and so we did not need an icebreaker as such.”

“Since our off screen camaraderie was good, it reflected on screen, and that helped me a lot. I cannot define my experience and bond with Abhishek in words, but I can only say he just made me very comfortable”, he added.

The Guru’ actor even invited himself for lunch at Naveen’s place, “There was a time when Abhishek called my mom when we were shooting in Lajpat Nagar and complained that we did not invite him home for lunch. So that’s the level of comfort and fun we share”, Naveen concluded.
