Vaani Kapoor wants her filmography to be as diverse as possible

Mumbai– Actress Vaani Kapoor, who recently essayed a trans woman in ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’, is consciously working on shaping up her filmography by choosing scripts and characters that are different from the league.

She hopes that her work in ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ and her upcoming release ‘Shamshera’ where she will be seen opposite Ranbir Kapoor, will incite the confidence in film-makers about her craft.

Talking about the same, she says, “I would like my filmography to be as diverse as possible and after showing my range as an actor in ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui’ and ‘Shamshera’, I can only hope that filmmakers would feel extremely confident to approach me with any challenging role. I have always wanted to win over their trust and be a part of interesting cinematic visions of powerful film-makers.”

She adds, “I know that I will give it my everything to pull off any character that I’m approached with to play on screen.”

Stating her opinion on the best thing about the profession of acting, the actress says, “The best thing about our profession is that one can get to become so many characters and live so many lives. I want my journey in cinema to be filled with varied films and genres and characters that light up the screen to entertain audiences.”

Sunny Leone: I take great pride in my songs becoming raging hits

Mumbai– Sunny Leone, who had incredible dance number hits with tracks like ‘Auntiyaan Dance Karengi’, ‘Machli’ and ‘Panghat, for which she reunited with Baby Doll singer Kanika Kapoor, is in a happy space. The actress maintains that all the songs pushed her to do her best as all of them were very different from each other.

Elated with the love pouring her way, she says, “I see myself as an entertainer and I take great pride in my songs becoming raging hits. People have been loving the number. It’s so overwhelming that my hard work has paid off.”

Considered among the industry’s most effortless dancers, Leone says she remembers training for most part of November to make sure each of these numbers have a different vibe to them.

She adds, “Sometimes there is a tendency to replicate steps but each of these songs were designed so differently. It meant working on a different track every few days but I consciously wanted each of these to stand out. I am so happy with the response.”

Ask her if there’s a favourite and she signs off with a smile, “Why pick when you can groove to all?”

Karishma Sawant: ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’ mixes authenticity with newness

While interacting with Col Bheemaiah P.S., Farhan gets nostalgic about his film ‘Lakshya’.

He says: “2003 is when we shot ‘Lakshya’ so before that I spent a lot of time in Ladakh mainly but now when I am here, I really feel very nostalgic about it. The time that we spent because you became a family and I think of them dearly today and I miss them a lot.”

Farhan on weapon handling and firing training said: “Every time you hold this weapon in your hand, it definitely does something to you. When you know the reason behind using this weapon and also in what situation, it fills you with a sense of responsibility.”

It is difficult to sum up the life of a soldier in words. I had to live a day in their life. It’s a day that is going to become a part of my stories.”
