outspoken Shia LaBeouf‘I’ve never lied about my life’

Shia LaBeouf often finds himself being quizzed about his relationships when he is promoting movies, but knows it is just a part of the business. The star of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps insists he doesn’t see the point in telling lies about his private life and prefers to remain open. “I’ve never lied. I’ve never lied about my life. I’m super-honest. This is who I've been since day one,” he told a film magazine.

Shia applies the same approach when discussing movies he has starred in and says audiences deserve to be told if a movie isn’t very good. The star thinks it’s better to warn viewers that a movie hasn’t worked because

otherwise they will discover the truth for themselves when they go to see it.
“What’s the point of promoting if you’re just gonna spew trash? The audience is intelligent. They know when you’ve made a bad film,” he said. Shia was likely to be referring to the second Transformers’ movie, Revenge of the Fallen, which was panned by critics.  His next film, Wall Street — Money Never Sleeps will be releasing in India on September 24.

Impressing one and all

Dabangg is Sonakshi Sinha’s debut film, but she didn’t show any signs of nervousness while facing the camera, says director Abhinav Kashyap. “Even though this is Sonakshi’s first film and she is opposite Salman (Khan) in the film, she showed no signs of nervousness. She is a very confident girl and has no camera fright. Just after doing few
rehearsals, she understood everything,” said Kashyap.
In Dabangg, Sonakshi plays a village belle, Rajo, who plays an important part in changing the life of Chulbul Pandey, played by Salman.

From offbeat to commercial

Film-maker Nagesh Kukunoor drew the wrath of audiences and critics alike for going the commercial way.  The films bombed and he lost out on the support that he had earlier garnered.

The acclaimed film-maker of Dor and Iqbal fame admits that his penchant for different cinema has surely led to him being stereotyped.

This is because the audiences and critics have ripped apart his more commercial  movies like 8 x 10 Tasveer and Bombay to Bangkok.

 Says the acclaimed director, “Everyone felt let down when I started doing commercial
cinema. They felt cheated as they had supported me when

 I was doing offbeat cinema. But they need to understand that I cannot always do just one kind of cinema.”
