New Delhi, March 21 (IANS) Amused at rumours of her link-up with ace cricketer Yuvraj Singh, Bollywood actor Raima Sen says its funny! “Whatever has been written about Yuvraj and me is quite funny!” Raima told IANS.
“I know Yuvi for a very long time and there is nothing at all between us. I think in the party that we attended during the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion week in Delhi, we were the only celebrities and eligible bachelors. So people linked us. I go to so many parties in Mumbai but nothing of this sort ever comes out,” she added.
Nisha Kothari has become choosy
Bollywood actress Nisha Kothari, who currently has no Bollywood projects, says she is unfazed and would say yes to films offering meatier roles.
“In the last two-and-a-half years I have worked day and night. I did whatever came my way, but now I have become choosy. I want to do meaningful roles rather than just being a decorative in the movie,” Nisha told IANS.
“Currently I am doing a south Indian film ‘Hari Om’ and spending quality time with my family,” she added.
And what’s happening in her love life?
“I am in love with myself and this beautiful world. But there is no particular person whom I am in love with. Actually, I am too young to handle all this.”
Being a character artist is no more a risk: Darshan Jariwala
Bollywood actor Darshan Jariwala of “Gandhi My Father” fame says that contrary to yesteryears, character actors are more than welcomed by the film industry.
After playing the serious role of Mahatma Gandhi in the critically acclaimed film, the actor was seen in gray shades in “Superstar” and “Halla Bol”. He is now readying to slip into the character of Sitara in an out-and-out comedy film “Tara Sitara”.
“Earlier, being typecast was necessary to sustain in Indian film industry. Taking creative risks wasn’t a wise idea at all,” Darshan told IANS.
“Now, it is vice-versa. Today, character actors enjoy huge acceptance and the credit goes to the advent of multiplexes, corporate investments in movies and the film industry becoming more organised,” he added.
