Without an ounce of doubt, he said, “On my wishlist would be Ranveer Singh as Rahul. He has that mad intensity as Shah Rukh Khan. Alia Bhatt as Anjali. She has the spunk and Janhvi Kapoor as Tina because she has the poise and balance of the part.” Narrating about how he cast for the film, he said, “I was ecstatic to meet SRK. Kajol and he had promised that they will do my first film. So I remembering going to meet him and I had no script whatsoever. I only had a scene in my mind. Which I narrated to him. And he bought into my bullshit. I told him if you like this one scene then I will narrate the entire film to you, which was completely a lie. Tabu, Urmila, Aishwarya turned me down and Ash was the only one who was polite to call me back. It took months to cast for Rani’s part after Aditya Chopra recommended me her name.”How would you like to see Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, and Janhvi Kapoor in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai reboot?

Aditya Narayan refuses to bow down to the contract system set by music labels says he wants to be an independent musician

Movies Bollywoodlife.com

Aditya Narayan has said that he won't succumb to the diktats of music labels and prefer to work on his own
'Singer and television host Aditya Narayan, who is mostly hosting TV shows than singing, says he is not okay with the contract system that music labels force upon singers. Adding that he wants to build his career as an independent musician, Aditya said doing television shows and acting help him take a step forward in that direction. \'From the time corporatisation happened (in the music industry), music labels have started signing contracts with singers. They want artistes to serve them. They cut a certain percentage from our live gigs and assignments. I am not okay with that system,\' Aditya Narayan told IANS. Also Read LEAKED! Not Punit J Pathak but Aditya Narayan to lift the Khatron Ke Khiladi season 9 trophy? \'I am a singer and a musician at heart, and music is in my soul, but we live in a different era -- way different from what my father and the earlier generation of singers lived in -- whether it is Sherya Ghoshal, Sonu Nigam, Sunidhi (Chauhan) di, Papa and his contemporaries, they were friends and lived like a family,\' said Aditya, son of singer Udit Narayan, who was huge playback phenomenon in the nineties and the 2000s. \'They (the earlier singers) would collaborate with music directors and experience success and failure together. Those things are over now,\' added the youngster who started singing from his childhood along with his father. As a child artiste, he lent his voice for numerous hits including the title songs of \'Rangeela\' (1995) and \'Akele Hum Akele Tum\' (1995), besides the number \'Chhota bachcha jaan ke\' in \'Masoom\' (1996). He has also appeared as a child actor \'Rangeela\', \'Pardes\' (1997), \'Jab Pyaar Kisise Hota Hai\' (1998). In 2007. Aditya started hosting the musical talent hunt show, \'Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge\'. Given the situation in the music industry, Aditya claims that he has decided to make money through anchoring game shows, reality shows, and live gigs, along with singing. \'To fight a system so strong, I need to have money and backing to put out songs independently. So I am hosting television shows and live gigs. I am really fortunate to be one of the highest-paid TV entertainers. For me, independent music means a group of artistes writing, composing and performing a song by themselves without the control of a music label,\' said the singer, who is appearing on the Colors TV show \'Khatra Khatra Khatra\'. \'I want to usher change, and I know I have to work tirelessly for that,\' Aditya concluded.'

Movies Bollywoodlife.com

Popular television actress Avika Gor, who tasted success in Hindi soaps, says that working in Telugu films regularly now lets her understand the language, so much so that she does not need a translator to understand her scripts.
'Popular television actress Avika Gor, who tasted success in Hindi soaps, says that working in Telugu films regularly now lets her understand the language, so much so that she does not need a translator to understand her scripts. The \'Balika Vadhu\' famed child actress is now 22 years, and she has been acting in Telugu and Kannada films since 2013. Asked about how she copes with an film industry where the language is so different from Hindi, Avika told: \'I have been doing Telugu films for quite some times now and that is why I have started understanding the language. Now I get dialogues and narration in Telugu and I understand the language quite well. I do not need a translator now.\' Starting her career in 2008, she has appeared in shows such \'Sasural Simar Ka\', \'Laado: Veerpur Ki Mardani\' and several non-fiction shows such as \'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa (season 5)\', \'Box Cricket League (season 2)\', and \'Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 9\'. Her prominent Telugu films include \'Lakshmi Raave Maa Intiki\', \'Cinema Choopistha Mava\', \'Maanja\', and \'Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada\'. On why she is not appearing in any new non-fiction show, Avika said: \'Since I am a youngster and fortunately have a strong fan-following, I want to be part of a story that entertains as well as offers a social message -- like 'Balika Vadhu' and 'Laado '. It is the best way to engage people and create awareness.\' However, she does not want to stay away from her fans, who love to see her on the small screen. That, she says, is a reason she keeps returning to the TV show, \'Khatra Khatra Khatra\'. \'It is a fun show and it features many of my favourite people including Bharti (Singh), Harsh (Limbachiyaa), Aditya (Narayan) and Gaurav (Dubey). I participate on a game show as 'Khatra Khatra Khatra' because it lets me stay in touch with my TV audience,\' she said. Playing Anandi in \'Balika Vadhu\' as a child star has had a \'larger-than-life\' impact. \'People still identify me with that show and the character, so I have to choose my next TV assignment very wisely and not just for the sake of visibility,\' said the actress who travelled to the Attari-Wagah border and played games for the \'Khatra Khatra Khatra\' episodes with the Border Security Force (BSF) soldiers.'
