Big B becomes Rana’s Hindi tutor! (Movie Snippets)May 7th, 2012 - 6:46 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, May 7 (IANS) Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is extremely fluent in spoken and written Hindi, offered to help southern actor Rana Daggubati with the language during the shooting of “Department”.
Initially, Big B was unaware of Rana’s weakness in the language. But later when he got to know about it, he decided to pull the young actor’s leg.
According to a source, the 69-year-old veteran asked Rana to narrate tough Hindi words and lines.
Out of sheer respect, Rana made honest attempts to narrate the lines, but often failed. That only ended up giving him a chance to be tutored by the megastar himself.
Happy with woman power in B-Town: Revathy

“As far as women behind the camera is concerned, it is very very good to see a whole lot of women coming into different fields. It feels good,” Revathy told IANS.
However, she still feels there is more scope for women-oriented content in tinsel town.
“I don’t think woman-oriented films have started getting appreciation. There were women-oriented films before. In between they disappeared, and they have just come back now,” she added.
