Bajpayee shakes a leg after a long time before the camera, for the song “Basanti” in his upcoming film, “Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari”.

“I would have liked to explore dance in movies more, but there was little scope for it in my choice of movies. I did enjoy dancing to the catchy beats of ‘Basanti’. It reminded me of ‘Satya’,” Manoj said referring to his 1998 film that saw him groove to the song “Sapne mein milti hai”.

“I am not a big fan of dancing, but I surely don’t mind when it facilitates the storytelling like in this track. I did have a good time after all and I hope people enjoy this little surprise from me,” added the National Award winner, who is known for his acclaimed roles in films as “Satya”, “Pinjar”, “Raajneeti”, “Gangs Of Wasseypur” and “Aligarh”.

“Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari” is a comedy set in Mumbai of the nineties. Also starring Fatima Sana Shaikh and Diljit Dosanjh, the film will release on November 13.

“I don’t buy things that I can’t reuse often enough. I get attached to the comfort of the few things I have. So, reusing clothes is a part of my personality. That’s one side of sustainability that comes easily to me,” the actress said.

She thinks that it’s a great idea to wear the same thing in a different way.

“I encourage people to do that and be conscious of the products that they are buying,” said Rasika.

She recently graced the virtual Green Carpet Fashion Awards 2020. The interesting dress code was a piece from the attendees’ wardrobe that is special to them.

As sustainability was the message of the event, Rasika wore an organza silk saree that has been in her family for 45 years.

The success of “War” last year has clearly triggered a flow of big offers coming her way. She has “Bell Bottom” co-starring Akshay Kumar, “Shamshera” with Ranbir Kapoor, the Ayushmann Khurrana-starrer “Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui” coming up.

“I can’t deny that this year has been great for me. Work-wise it has worked for me. I’m happy to be getting opportunities like these. I guess life and God work in mysterious ways and I have been the busiest that I have ever been now,” Vaani said.

She says she is not thinking too much and not putting in too much thought into it.

“I’m just taking everything good in my stride. I’m just focussing on that and trying to give my best.”

She claims even when she was doing less films, it wasn’t like she was wallowing.

“It was a conscious choice to be a part of few projects in the last six years because I wasn’t getting the kind of films I wanted to be a part of. Now luckily, the doors are slowly opening. Abhishek Kapoor’s film (‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’) is a huge opportunity. I just want to do honest work and do it for the pure joy that I’m getting to do what I want to,” she said.

Vaani’s last film, “War” paired her opposite Hrithik Roshan and also starred Tiger Shroff. The film emerged a blockbuster last year. The actress says her life did change after being part of the action entertainer, even though she had a small role in the film. (IANS)
