Mumbai– Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, who flaunted a perfect eight-pack abs in the song ‘Jhoome Jo Pathaan’ in his latest release ‘Pathaan’, is happy that youngsters find his chiselled body “cool”.

SRK, who is a father of three – Aaryan, Suhana and AbRam, said: “When they (director Siddharth Anand and choreographer Bosco Martis) were doing Jhoome Jo Pathaan song, I think a conspiracy was hatched to make me go shirtless. There was no way that I was sure about doing it (taking my shirt off) but then they made me do it!”

He added: “I think it was already planned that slowly, slowly, they will start opening my buttons. I have never done my signature steps with abs! So, ya, it took a lot of takes, a lot of takes.”

“I’m very happy now when youngsters, my kids see me on screen and say damn cool body papa! I feel very happy but it is really scary! I don’t know if I will be able to do it again.”

About what he loves about the chartbuster song Jhoome Jo Pathaan, SRK said: “Jhoome Jo Pathaan is a song that I feel makes you want to dance. Just wanted to do a step which everyone can do with ease. It comes when it’s like all things are done well now and so let’s celebrate, it’s a party song in the film.”

Ruchi Singh doesn’t believe in rejecting a project for bold scenes

Mumbai– Actress Ruchi Singh, who has been part of mythological dramas like ‘Santoshi Maa Sunayein Vrat Kathayein 2’ and ‘Vighnaharta Ganesh’, said that she is now interested in grabbing different kinds of roles and is not hesitant to do a bold scene if the character demands.

Ruchi said: “I do feel that acting is a profession where you have to be ready to essay any kind of role, be it a negative one, positive one or a romantic one. Being in this profession, I can’t create boundaries or inhibitions for myself because, nowadays, there are a lot of good projects which demand bold scenes. So, I don’t believe in rejecting a project only because it has a close-proximity scene.”

She further added: “If I feel the scene justifies the screenplay and story and if it enhances the scene, I would love to perform it. For me, performing every scene is a part of my job, whether it’s a drunken scene or bold scenes, and I don’t find anything negative in this.”

At last, she shares that she is open to taking up any role or scene if it is the demand of the script and “shot aesthetically”.

“Nowadays, the choice of the viewers is also changing and everyone is open to the idea of adult scenes in any project. I am open to stretching the boundaries but the scene should be justified and shot aesthetically,” she concluded. (IANS)
