Shahana learns Bharatnatyam for new film

Actress Shahana Goswami is having a tough but exciting time picking up Bharatnatyam steps for a new film.

“For those of you asking what dance class - Bharatnatyam. It’s for a film I’m starting in January. Not an Indian film but very exciting,” tweeted Shahana.

The 25-year-old, who has featured in films like “Rock On!!”, “Break Ke Baad” and “Game”, is a trained Odissi dancer.

“I’ve done 10 years of Odissi and my god, is it difficult to learn another form. Your body gets so used to moving in one way…But enjoying it now,” she added.

Shahana is also looking forward to superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s mega-budget production “RA.One”, in which she has a role.

“Inching closer to the release of ‘RA.One. Can’t wait to see how everyone reacts to it! So much sweat and blood gone into it… It has to b great! More I see @iamsrk more I want to see him. He’s addictive! He never fails to excite you with something new. He deserves all the love and more!” she posted.

Kabir Khan shoots ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ in Istanbul

Director Kabir Khan is busy panning his camera across Istanbul, where he has gone to shoot Yash Raj Films’ (YRF) “Ek Tha Tiger”, starring former off screen couple Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif.

“Tiger has landed in Istanbul… Schedule 2 begins. Stunning Istanbul… perfect backdrop for the Tiger in action,” Khan, who had earlier directed “Kabul Express” and “New York”, posted on Twitter.

YRF had released a one-of-its-kind digital poster for the movie in August. The poster pans into a wide view of a populated city, and gradually depicts a silhouette of a well-built man with a scarf flying from his neck. But Khan clarifies the city depicted in the poster is not Istanbul.

“That’s another magical city which I will reveal only in the film,” he tweeted. “Tigress bhi yahin hai (The tigress is also here)” — perhaps a reference to Katrina.

The film, to be released worldwide June 1, 2012, is based on a story by Aditya Chopra while the screenplay and dialogues are by Kabir and Neelesh Misra.

The first schedule took place in Dublin after Salman came back on his feet post his surgery to treat a nerve condition that has been causing pain in his cheeks and jaw.
