Taapsee posted a screenshot of a chat on Instagram Stories, where a troll calls her a “faltu heroine”, slut-shames her and adds that she can’t act in films. In one place, the troll also mentions Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s name.

On the first image, Taapsee wrote: “Exactly kya utha utha ke? Kyunki uthaya toh hai maine, standard but aapko shayad nahi samajh aaye. (What lifting? The only thing that I have lifted is the standard which you can’t see.”

She then tagged the troll in the second screenshot and added: “O hooooo. Very persistent you are. 4-5 baar aur likho please toh shayad maan jau (write the same thing four or five times more, maybe I would be convinced).”

Adaa Khan on ‘Bigg Boss 14’: You miss one episode, you see new people becoming friends

Mumbai– Naagin actress Adaa Khan says every episode reveals a new friendship in the Bigg Boss house this season.

“This season, the contestants are taking time to open up. If you miss even one episode, you see a different bonding. So you don’t know what you have missed and how come this person is getting along with this one. There are new friendships. You don’t know their personality. They are not opening up that well this time,” she said.

While she is not able to catch all the episodes, she is rooting for a few people in the house.

“Eijaz (Khan) is my friend, I am supporting him. Though I don’t know Abhinav (Shukla), I have started liking him. So I am rooting for him as well. The ‘chupa rustom’ (dark horse) of the house is Rahul Vaidya for sure,” she said.

Adaa also liked watching the first two weeks of the season when seniors Hina Khan, Gauahar Khan and Sidharth Shukla were staying in the house.

“It was a delight to watch three faces of ‘Bigg Boss’ once again. They have been the finalists and winners of the previous seasons. I really adore Gauahar Khan for her personality and the way she carries herself. Of course, Hina and Sidharth were really amazing too,” said Adaa.

Mumbai– Actress Urvashi Rautela wants to try out all genres, but wants to do a romantic film again, after the 2016 release, Sanam Re.

“I have hunger as an actor to do all sorts of films and explore all genres and let myself grow with every film,” she said.

“While hope is certainly important, the scientific reason why we tend to fall for a good romantic film is oxytocin or the hormone of love. So when we see a love story, the story resonates with us and our brains react as if we are experiencing it ourselves. When it comes to romance movies, it can feel a bit like we are falling in love ourselves and connecting with the same on a deeper level,” said Urvashi.

The actress recently shot for the video of the song “Woh chaand kaha se laogi”.

“It is my small wish and aspiration to do a romantic film again after ‘Sanam Re’. This video is purely a love story with a lot of heart-break. It has been beautifully composed by Vishal Mishra,” said Urvashi.

She is now looking forward to the release of her Telugu film “Black Rose”.

Kiara plays a girl from Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, in the Abir Sengupta directorial, which revolves around her misadventures with dating apps.

“Abir knew exactly how he wanted Indoo to walk and talk. Since he has also written the dialogues of the film it made the process easier. We spent a couple of months before commencing shoot prepping for the character and creating a fun and quirky Indoo, her style of talking and dialogue delivery is distinct and easily identifiable,” Kiara said.

Abir makes his directorial debut with “Indoo Ki Jawani”, set to release in theatres on December 11. The coming-of-age comedy also features Aditya Seal and Mallika Dua.

Kiara was recently seen in the Akshay Kumar-starrer horror comedy “Laxmii”. She is currently shooting for “Jug Jugg Jeeyo”, which also stars Varun Dhawan, Anil Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor and YouTube sensation Prajakta Koli, who makes her Bollywood debut with the role. “Jug Jugg Jeeyo” is directed by Raj Mehta, who shot to fame directing “Good Newwz” last year.

Aditya has earlier appeared in films like “Namaste England”, “Tum Bin II”, “Student Of The Year 2” and “Purani Jeans”. (IANS)
