Armed for sword fighting

Sensational actor Tamannaah Bhatia is leaving no stone unturned for the movie ‘Baahubali 2’ , the sequel of ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ which was a huge success in theatres. The 26-year-old Tamil, Telugu and Bollywood diva is busy learning horse riding for the Prabhu Deva’s next. Tamannaah will also be learning various art forms for the movie.

According to an insider, in ‘Baahubali 2’ audiences will witness Tamannaah performing some high action sequences including intense sword fights and horse riding. The actor will be trained by Jeetu Varma, who in past has trained Kangana Ranut and Sonakshi Sinha.

“The actor has never done horse riding. She has started with her training and is completely dedicated and excited for it. Not just this, simultaneously the actor is known to be rehearsing passionately for a hard core dance number in Prabhu Deva’s next,” added sources close to the team.

Talking about it, Tamannaah says, “This is my first attempt at learning horse riding, so initially it took me a little time to connect with the horse and catch his rhythm and to learn how to control him, but once I started getting that, it became a lot of fun. Apart from horse riding I am also doing a lot of sword fighting and action scenes for a sequence in ‘Baahubali’, which I am definitely looking forward to.”

Surveen ready for ‘24’

Bollywood actor Surveen Chawla is all set to hit the small screens soon.
The sensational ‘Hate Story-2’ actor will be seen with Anil Kapoor in ‘24’ season 2.
The 31-year-old, who made her acting debut in TV serial ‘Kahiin To Hoga’, will be seen performing some intimate scenes with the veteran B-Town star.

The actor will also be seen romancing with Sikander Kher, who is playing Haaron in the series.

Surveen was last seen in ‘Welcome Back’ as a special appearance. She earned fame from ‘Hate Story-2’, performing quite bold scenes opposite Jay Bhanushali. “The actor is not doing any Bollywood movies this year and is waiting for a right role to come to her,” added sources.

 However, as per confirmed reports, we may soon see Surveen in ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’, which will go on-air in July.

Playing son to Sridevi

Bollywood actor Abhimanyu Singh will be soon seen playing main antagonist in Boney Kapoor’s ‘Mom’ along with the charismatic Sridevi.

The actor, known for his meaty portrayals of various characters in films like ‘Gulal’, ‘Ramleela’, ‘Jazbaa’ and recently, in ‘Global Baba’, has always held a huge fascination for Sridevi and holds her in very high regard.

“Sridevi is a fabulous actor and a wonderful human being. We just finished a schedule in Georgia shooting under very difficult situation. It was minus 7 degrees there and the sunset would happen at 8.30 pm. The chilling cold with snow covered land and surroundings made the shoot extremely difficult and challenging. But her concern
for the entire team made it easier. She would tell me to keep changing the socks every half an hour so I don’t catch cold. I think Boneyji and Sridevi are very large hearted people. Working with Sridevi ma’am is a dream come true, she is an institute and powerhouse performer.

She has been my favourite actor from college days and today I get to share screen space with her,” said Abhimanyu.The 37-year-old, who made his Bollywood debut in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s ‘Aks’, is highly praised for his role in ‘Gulal’ and ‘Rameela’.

Iulia unhappy with Sallu

All doesn’t seem to be well between Bollywood’s ‘Dabangg’, Salman Khan and his rumored girlfriend Iulia Vantur. As per reports, Iulia is unhappy with Salman due to his growing closeness with Bollywood actors Daisy Shah and Zareen Khan.

However, sources say that Salman is not ready to limit his social circle. Iulia even confronted Daisy directly and the situation escalated into a fight between the two. Both Daisy and Zareen were launched in Bollywood by Salman and rumors were ripe that Salman dated them both at different times. Both are considered good friends to Salman. Not just this, Daisy was also gifted a swanky car by Salman just 3 months back.

Meanwhile, sources close to Daisy have added that the ‘Jai Ho’ actor considers Salman as a friend and his family means a lot to her. Daisy knows Iulia as just her friend’s friend.

Allaying rumours on ‘Shorgul’

Shorgul’, which is set to release in theatres on June 24, has nothing to do with the upcoming assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh. Dialogue writer and actor Shashie Verma has came forward and has very categorically added that the timing of the movie is not politically motivated.

“It is purely a coincidence, we have shot this film last summer and thought of releasing in November. The release however, was delayed due to post production reasons. The movie is an honest effort to carry a much-needed message of humanity towards the society with a good content,” Shashie said.

The movie revolves around the killing in Dadri which shook the national conscience. With elections due in the state next year, the timing of the release has stirred a small controversy.

Produced by Vijay Singh, the movie features actors Jimmy Shergill and Ashutosh Rana. Jimmy will be seen playing the role of a politician while the lyrics
are by Congress leader
Kapil Sibal.
