Tabu says it is her choice to say "yes to every kind of cinema" that has prevented her from getting typecast in the Hindi film industry and that, she feels, gives her an edge.

Asked how she has managed to evade the typecast trap during her career, Tabu told: "I think that's also my greatest advantage! If you look at my filmography, you will only see every kind of film and every genre of cinema... My kitty is full with all kinds of films.

"My kitty has been carefully crafted, though it was not a conscious decision. The only conscious thing that I did was I did not say no to any kind of films. I choose to say yes to every kind of cinema. I don't look down upon any kind of films."

If she has delivered power-packed performances in films like "Maachis" and "Chandni Bar" -- both of which won her a National Award -- she has even featured in commercial films like "Hera Pheri", "Coolie No. 1", "Biwi No.1", "Saajan Chale Sasural" and "Chachi 420".

Tabu, who stepped into filmdom in early 1990s, has also worked in regional cinema by stepping out of the Hindi domain and working in Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, Bengali and English movies.

She explained that it is her plain desire to act that allows her to do every kind of film.

Asked if she is open to do smaller budget 'festival films', the 44-year-old said: "I need a wider audience, but if you are paying my price, then take it to festivals, I am okay! But money matters. I can't be going to festivals and become the face of the film and trying to sell it. That's not my job. I don't want to become responsible for a film."

Nevertheless, if she comes across a "great story and fantastic script", she may produce it.

"I can either act in a film or be the face of it. I don't want to do both as it's too much work," added the actress, who will next be seen in the romantic drama "Fitoor" with Aditya Roy Kapoor and Katrina Kaif.

She essays the role of Begum in "Fitor" and describes her character as "overpowering".

"She is such a strong character. Her presence in the film is so overpowering that I just felt fortunate to have got this role. Ask me what I went through to get into the skin of the character. I should have taken double money," she quipped.

Tabu says while she is satisfied with her career graph so far, there's room for a lot more work.

"I should be satisfied. If I am not satisfied now, then it's very bad. There is always room for more and we all feel that we want to do more," she said.

'Great Expectations' apart, 'Fitoor' stands on its own: Katrina Kaif http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Great-Expectations-apart,-Fitoor-stands-on-its-own:-Katrina-Kaif-15386-422894.html http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Great-Expectations-apart,-Fitoor-stands-on-its-own:-Katrina-Kaif-15386-422894.html#comments 2016-02-02 12:06:14 aditya http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Great-Expectations-apart,-Fitoor-stands-on-its-own:-Katrina-Kaif-15386-422894.html Katrina Kaif, who is starring in filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor's film "Fitoor", an adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic novel "Great Expectations", says that its story is "relatable" to current topics and "stands on its own".

"I think more important than being inspired by 'Great Expectations' or not being inspired by it, for me it is a relatable story and topic, which talks about many problems these days," Katrina told.

"It's a really relatable story, probably one of the most relatable stories I can think of to have been adapted... Whether you've read the book or don't care about it, the film stands on its own. It doesn't need the book to support it. I hope people come into the theatres just based on wanting to give the film a shot," she added.

The actress also highlights the "social stigmas", which the story talks about.

"Social stigma is a big thing, the social status as I would put it, which oftentimes comes in love stories, and happens around us because of the nature of our country," the 32-year-old said.

The actress, who recently launched L'Oreal Paris's new La Vie En Rose signature collection, says Kapoor has "maintained the integrity" of the original novel.

"Abhishek has maintained the integrity of the story of 'Great Expectations'. It's basically about a mother who has been extremely jilted by her lover and has become very bitter. And as a result, she is almost brainwashing and manipulating her daughter and kind of having a wrong way on love and life," the "Phantom" actress said.

"Maybe in a certain way, she is trying to protect her from the same heartbreak which love can sometimes bring and some way encourage her to take revenge on men in general for the hurt," she added.

Does the the word "fitoor", which means passion, hold any personal meaning for Katrina?

"If we talk about 'fitoor' and love, then obviously it is just the overwhelming, all-encompassing feeling that becomes the centre to the point of the universe... Love can have that effect on you. When you talk about 'fitoor' in relation to the movie, that's the way I see it," said the actress, who in her over decade-long stay in Bollywood has climbed up the ladder of success with her varied roles.

She said she is extremely passionate for her work.

"When you talk about passions for other things, then I am definitely very passionate about my work. It's not just my job, it's also something that brings me satisfaction. Definitely, there are times when you are tired and have a bad day. But there are many moments when we see the work you do and you feel wonderful," Katrina added.

A talent that has worked in romantic, comedy and action roles, Katrina says she chooses her roles based on her instinct.

"I have always been very basic and instinctive with the kind of roles I choose. If I like a film, then it sounds like a film I want to be a part of, then I have always gone for it. There hasn't been a plan or strategy, it's always been very instinctive," Katrina said, while adding that she is open to doing films in any "kind of language and good script."

Safe is boring for me: Actor John Abraham http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Safe-is-boring-for-me:-Actor-John-Abraham-15386-422844.html http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Safe-is-boring-for-me:-Actor-John-Abraham-15386-422844.html#comments 2016-02-01 09:25:53 aditya http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Safe-is-boring-for-me:-Actor-John-Abraham-15386-422844.html In an industry where it's easy to follow a formula, John Abraham likes to break convention. Whether it's with his acting projects or productions, the Bollywood talent says he finds it "boring" to be in a "safe" zone.

A former supermodel, John made his acting debut with "Jism" in 2003 when erotic thriller was not as popular a genre as it is today. Back then, it was clutter-breaking.

And in 2012, when he turned producer with "Vicky Donor", it turned out to be a perfect example of a clean entertainer with a powerful message about a subject as hush-hush as sperm donation.

He opened up on his choice and taste of cinema in an interview.

"When I play safe, I fail, and people ask me why, and I say conventional is boring! I will always experiment. 'Jism' was very different, and 'Vicky Donor' as a producer again very different.

"I will always experiment with my films... even if they fail in the short run, they will work in the longer run," said the 43-year-old, who has delivered powerful performances in films like "Water", "No Smoking", "Aashayein" and "Madras Cafe" among others.

"I have to play unsafe. John works when he is experimental, he works when he is unconventional. I cannot play safe; safe is so boring for me that it shows on my face! Safe is monotonous for me," conceded the actor, whose business acumen also comes from the fact that he's an MBA by qualification.

He however likes to maintain a balance between commercial films and those driven by good content.

"I will always first be an actor, then a producer. When the actor's life cycle comes on a low stage, the producer will pick up. As an actor, I will do commercial films like 'Welcome Back' and 'Housefull 2', but will I make them under my banner JA Entertainment? No, I will make a 'Madras Cafe' and a 'Rocky Handsome'.

"I will make a film that has the fabric which I really believe in as a producer. I am driven by content so aggressively that people have got fed up of me. I only concentrate on content. While others are creating films, I am only building a bank of content," he added.

His next production "Rocky Handsome", in which he co-stars with Shruthi Haasan, will have dollops of action -- perhaps much more than some of John's previous action movies. But he's not bothered about being typecast in the genre.

"Somewhere in all the content I see and I explore, there is a basic thread that holds it all together, and that's a little bit of action. I don't have a problem with that and I don't look at it as getting typecast.

"I have the physicality of an action hero. I have signed up for action for my next three films... If I really wanted to be careful, then I'd probably dance," quipped the actor, who's known for his well-built physique.

Besides, the fitness freak also says he enjoys doing the daredevilry.

In fact, he says the USP of Nishikant Kamat-directorial "Rocky Handsome" is "the action that's backed by the emotion or the emotion backed that's by the action".

"With 'Rocky Handsome', I just felt that any amount of good action is worthless without the right and requisite emotion.

I choose to live an uncomplicated life: Deepika Padukone http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/I-choose-to-live-an-uncomplicated-life:-Deepika-Padukone-15386-422584.html http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/I-choose-to-live-an-uncomplicated-life:-Deepika-Padukone-15386-422584.html#comments 2016-01-25 08:55:37 aditya http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/I-choose-to-live-an-uncomplicated-life:-Deepika-Padukone-15386-422584.html Big banner films, endorsements, awards, appreciation and attention. Deepika Padukone has all these, but she says they haven't changed the "normal girl" in her because she chooses to live a life free of complications.

"I'm just a normal girl... nothing has changed for me. I can still go out freely. I believe your life changes in a way that you want it to be. I don't think my life has changed in a drastic way," Deepika told in an interview.

"Yes, there are some things that come with the profession, but the basics are more important. I like to believe that certain things haven't changed.

"I don't miss anything about my past. I choose to keep doing things that are meaningful and special to me. I choose to live a life that is not complicated. Sometimes we unnecessarily complicate our own lives, but I choose not to live like that," she added.

Her simplicity, she said, comes from her father, celebrated badminton player Prakash Padukone.

It was in 2007 that Deepika made her foray into Bollywood, but much before that she was a successful model and had plum endorsements.

Since her Bollywood launch with "Om Shanti Om", Deepika has painted a success story that only a few outsiders from the industry have been able to score.

Tall, well-spoken and expressive, her forte has been all about her ease of slipping into characters that are distinct in persona -- whether it is nerdy Naina of "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani", the bold Leela in "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela", a doting daughter in "Piku" or valiant warrior Mastani in her last release "Bajirao Mastani".

Of course, she had her misses -- "Karthik Calling Karthik", "Lafangey Parindey", "Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey" and "Dum Maaro Dum". But now she even has a Hollywood film in her kitty -- "xXx: The Return of Xander Cage", in which she will star alongside Vin Diesel, Samuel L. Jackson and Nina Dobrev.

"I'm very excited and at the same time nervous about the film," the 30-year-old said.

After almost a decade in Bollywood, the former model, who spoke to IANS on the launch of watch brand Tissot's new collection, says she's only looking forward to "meaningful films".

"You are constantly trying to get better at what you do and you try to do better than what you did last. I want to be part of different kinds of films. That's really the aim.

"And, most importantly, to be a part of meaningful films, that will be remembered for a long time. I'm just hoping that 2016 will be as special as last year," said Deepika, who was also appreciated for her work in "Tamasha" last year.

Fans make us who we are: Amitabh Bachchan http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Fans-make-us-who-we-are:-Amitabh-Bachchan-15386-422086.html http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Fans-make-us-who-we-are:-Amitabh-Bachchan-15386-422086.html#comments 2016-01-05 12:01:53 aditya http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Fans-make-us-who-we-are:-Amitabh-Bachchan-15386-422086.html For years, fans have thronged the gate of his Mumbai bungalow every Sunday morning. He has the maximum followers on Twitter for an Indian, and has a burgeoning "extended family" of those who read his blog. Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan who, at 73, attracts fans galore wherever he goes, says they are an "essential" part of an actor's career.

The actor, who has spent over four decades in the film industry, often shares instances of how his fans end up getting either amused or startled if he's travelling in the same airplane as them; or of the exhilaration that they experience upon clicking selfies with him; and more.

But Amitabh, a globally popular face from Bollywood and one who has admirers across the world, brushes it off as just a result of 'celebrity' status.

"I think this would happen to any one that has claims to being a celebrity. There is nothing wrong in it or objectionable. Fan interest is essential for an actor. They make us who we are. Giving them attention or getting it from them is justifiable," Amitabh told.

That has been an ongoing phenomenon throughout his career.

It's interesting how the actor has been experimenting with his driving skills -- whether it's riding a bicycle for "Piku", a scooter for "Te3n" or even a 'tuk-tuk' for leisure. But he says the best drive for him has been his 45-year-long journey in showbiz.

Asked to share his best driving memory, the three-time National Award winner, said: "Driving memories? 45 years in the film industry has been a wonderful drive!"

And why not? Best known for his roles in films like "Anand", "Agneepath", "Namak Haraam", "Don", "Hum", "Zanjeer", "Black" and "Paa" to name a few, Amitabh has regaled Hindi film buffs as much with his 'angry young man' avatar as in romantic avatars; as much as in intensely dramaticl roles, as those with a comical streak.

From essaying a 12-year-old boy Auro in "Paa"; a friendly ghost in "Bhoothnath Returns"; a failed actor and drunkard in "Shamitabh"; and a grumpy father in "Piku" - these are a few of his recent portrayals on the silver screen that have been a window to Amitabh's talent, which has not faded, but only enhanced with age.

"At my age, this is the best that can come my way and one should be thankful and grateful that there is work available at this time of my career," said the son of late poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan and Teji Bachchan.

The experience of facing the camera, he says, has not changed.

"Every day is an experience for me. Filmmaking has only one gospel - the sound of 'Start sound', 'camera', 'clap', 'action'... And you better get it right after hearing those words," he said.

Adding more versatility to his filmography comes "Wazir", which features Amitabh as a paralysed chess grandmaster, confined to a wheelchair.

He said the wheelchair made matters "a lot easier".

"I did not have to worry where to keep my hands... Hehe.. But seriously, though it was great to be able to portray a character I had never done before," said Amitabh, who said the preparations for the role weren't too many.

It's a project that Amitabh readily said "yes" to, especially since it was an idea that filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra -- whom he describes as an "astute producer" -- had narrated to him around 15 years ago and he had liked it.

Now that the film is ready to hit theatres on Friday, Amitabh describes it as a "smart and modern film, unique in its structure and presentation".

"And, yes, this one has been made most sensitively as well. It's intelligent and swift-paced," added the actor, who has also sung a track titled "Atrangi yaari" along with co-star Farhan Akhtar for the Bejoy Nambiar directorial.

'Dangal' experience changed my life: Kashmiri actor Zaira Wasim http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Dangal-experience-changed-my-life:-Kashmiri-actor-Zaira-Wasim-15386-421344.html http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Dangal-experience-changed-my-life:-Kashmiri-actor-Zaira-Wasim-15386-421344.html#comments 2015-12-14 09:01:08 aditya http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Dangal-experience-changed-my-life:-Kashmiri-actor-Zaira-Wasim-15386-421344.html Zaira Wasim, who was unknown a few months ago, has now become a household name in her native Kashmir after landing a role in superstar Aamir Khan's upcoming movie "Dangal".

Competing with a thousand girls, Zaira never thought she would ever get a chance to land a role in the film. But luck was on her side, as she bagged the role of wrestler Geeta Phogat and got the chance to share screen space with Aamir. After completing shooting for six months in Mumbai, Zaira is now back in Srinagar.

"I was like new to the (showbiz) world and felt nervous when I was working with my co-actors on the sets", Zaira told.

"The experience has been so strong to change my life. Playing Geeta Phogat, the role demanded wrestling skills on my part. I had to go through rigorous physical and mental training," added the 15-year-old Zaira, who is currently in Class 10.

Phogat is the first woman wrestler from India to have won the gold in the 55 kg freestyle category at the 2010 Commonwealth Games. In "Dangal", Aamir plays wrestler Mahavir Singh Phogat, who trained his two daughters in the sport.

Zaira's training included exhaustive morning sessions of running, swimming and wrestling. The training made her learn to overcome anxieties.

"Before 'Dangal', I had done two ads. I got a call from Mukesh Chabra (the film's casting director) to attend an important workshop for a week. I went to Mumbai to attend the workshop. There were a lot of girls who had already done one or more ads or serials and I had to do some scenes in front of them; so, I was like 'there is no space for me'," she said.

Like other parents, Zaira too had to convince her parents to support her decision to act in the film, more so being from Kashmir.

"It was my school principal and my aunt who supported my decision. They both convinced my parents and handled the situation very well," Zaira said.

As the word of her shooting for the film spread, some netizens began trolling and bullying her and also issued self-styled life threats.

"Some nasty comments about me were posted on social media. But Aamir Khan and the rest of the crew helped me. I am still getting comments from unknown persons, but I believe in positivity and have learned how to deal with such comments," she said.

"To be honest, after getting back to Kashmir and being a girl, it haunts me how people would feel about me now. But I saw appreciation and support from my friends, family and other neighbours and I am really honoured that people are telling me I am representing Kashmir," she added.

Zaira said that the people in Kashmir should "realise their talent" as they have a "lot of potential and ability".

Does she have any plans for future in Bollywood?

"I don't have any goal or any aim which I have to follow; I am going with the flow that life shows me... I want to study, but if another film offer comes my way in future and doesn't affect my studies I will take it," Zaira concluded.

Clean comedy more appreciated than vulgarity: Johnny Lever http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Clean-comedy-more-appreciated-than-vulgarity:-Johnny-Lever-15386-420922.html http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Clean-comedy-more-appreciated-than-vulgarity:-Johnny-Lever-15386-420922.html#comments 2015-11-27 15:23:41 aditya http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Clean-comedy-more-appreciated-than-vulgarity:-Johnny-Lever-15386-420922.html Trends come and go in the cinematic world, but the fact that clean humour and good comedy reign over "meaningless" entertainers has sustained over the years, says Bollywood's beloved comedian and character actor Johnny Lever, who now simply skips "nonsense" films.

"I've been in the industry for the last 35 years. If we compare today's comedy with the one that we used to see earlier, then there is a difference, but it's not a big one. Trend always keeps on changing... But good comedy is always appreciated more than vulgar and meaningless one," Johnny, best known for his roles in films like "Raja Hindustani", "Deewana Mastana" and "Dulhe Raja", told.

"For making a good comedy film, you need a good writer whose craft can be understood through the time that he takes to write his script. A good writer takes time to go in-depth into a subject and then comes out with a good script. Then it's the job of the actor and director to improvise with it and make it even better," Johnny said.

The "Housefull 2" actor, who will perform with his daughter Jamie in the US next year, also feels that when it comes to vulgar comedy, its "easy to write and perform".

"It takes less time. That's why it is seen quite often these days. In earlier times, in the era of Mehmood Ali and Kishore Kumar, people used to observe a lot and used to take time in writing scripts. Comedy made in a hurry is waste and meaningless. The comedy, where you are insulting people, is easy to write," Johnny said.

Gearing up to feature in director Rohit Shetty's Shah Rukh Khan- and Kajol-starrer "Dilwale", Johnny said he does "fewer" films now.

"I choose scripts which bring out some meaningful message. Otherwise, I skip being part of nonsense comedies... it won't look good if I'll appear in a film just to show my face and do weird roles, especially after working in around 400 films," he added.

However, he feels that in current times, comedy is so popular that it's almost part of every character in a film. Due to this, a comedian's work has become tougher.

"Everybody is doing comedy - right from the lead actor to villain and supporting cast. But I have never felt the fear of being neglected or overshadowed. People often call me saying: 'Johnny, we have a role that we think only you can do'. If I like the character, then I instantly say yes to them.

"A supportive actor's career depends upon the variety that he showcases in all his roles. If his roles will be similar to one another, then his career will not have a long run. Also it's the job of a supporting actor to maintain the liveliness in the film. In that way, he holds a big job in his hands," added the actor, who has infused life into several movies during his career.

I like to get bigger, better with each film: Salman Khan http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/I-like-to-get-bigger,-better-with-each-film:-Salman-Khan--15386-420438.html http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/I-like-to-get-bigger,-better-with-each-film:-Salman-Khan--15386-420438.html#comments 2015-11-06 16:09:01 aditya http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/I-like-to-get-bigger,-better-with-each-film:-Salman-Khan--15386-420438.html Salman Khan is known for portraying myriad shades on the cinematic canvas - be it his iconic 'Prem' avatar, zany police officer of "Dabangg" or a simpleton in "Bajrangi Bhaijaan". The superstar, who now awaits the release of the grand family drama "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", is eyeing greater success in showbiz as he believes in getting "bigger and better" with each film.

"After 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo' and 'Sultan', I've signed nothing much yet. I have finalised one script. Whatever I do next has to be on the same level or much higher than that. A film of the same level, but of a different kind; or a better film is welcome. And currently, we are working on that script.

"Once you get appreciation (for your work), you want to keep on getting that and keep on getting bigger and better," Salman, one of Bollywood's highest paid stars, told IANS in an interview during his visit here for promoting "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", which will also release in Pakistan.

It's a 'double bonanza' year for Salman's fans. After winning hearts in India and abroad, including Pakistan, with his heart-warming performance in "Bajrangi Bhaijaan", Salman, who will turn 50 on December 27, will be back with a bang as 'Prem' in Sooraj Barjatya's directorial that is releasing on November 12.

Prem is an onscreen name that Salman has taken on several times in his past films. But this time, the son of veteran writer Salim Khan says Prem is back with a lot more "fun and naughty antics".

He is also confident that the audience "will receive Prem really well" with "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", which reunites him with Barjatya after 16 years.

Barjatya introduced Salman as a lover boy of Bollywood through "Maine Pyar Kiya" in 1989, and they weaved the magic again onscreen with hit films like "Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!" and "Hum Saath-Saath Hain".

Salman says it's always a delight to work with Barjatya, whom he considers "the best person in the world" and one who "connects with people from bottom of the heart". He also quipped that Barjatya, in fact, is "more romantic" than him.

"All the scenes that you see in a movie from 'Maine Pyar Kiya', 'Hum Aapke Hain Koun..!' to 'Hum Saath-Saath Hain', they were written by Barjatya. I have just enacted them," said the handsome hunk, who has a huge female fan following across the globe.

In "Prem Ratan Dhan Payo", Salman's heroine is Sonam Kapoor, who looks classy in colourful and traditional wear in the film's trailer. The movie's vibe is desi, and Salman has dual looks in it. With Barjatya's signature palatial sets, fancy costumes and a larger than life canvas, the movie looks like a Diwali treat for Salman's fans.

After that, he will be seen as a wrestler in "Sultan", for which the "Bigg Boss Nau" host is already sporting a refreshing avatar.

The play, which deals with the perennial debate of life versus death, was staged at the India Habitat Centre here as part of the ongoing Old World Theatre festival.

Though the actor was a bit nervous about the feedback of the cognoscente, she was equally excited about bringing her production to the capital. “I was very excited to come to Delhi as I have lot of theatre friends here, whose opinions matter to me. I was a little nervous about their reaction,” Kalki told.

Death is real in "The Living Room" as played by Niel Bhuplam. He waits in the living room of Ana Nil (Sheeba Chadha), to wake her up from sleep. Dressed in a black coat and his body painted in blue (wearing a red shoe), death sometimes act like a fool exhibiting all human fallacies. He loves to savour ginger cookies, tea and engages in a conversation with Ana who doesn’t want to die.

Kalki says that the idea came about in a sleepless night and Woody Allen’s sense of humour was a driving force. “I couldn’t sleep one night and wrote a two-page scene between death and an old woman where she argues with him about life and death. Woody Allen's sense of humour has always attracted me and I love the way he can make life so meaningful and yet show us what a farce it can be at the same time,” said the actor, who majored in theatre from the University of London before her Bollywood entry.

With death on her bedside, Ana travels back and forth in time revisiting her childhood to the present. Though the play glimpses some surreal moments with well-crafted montages juxtaposing life and death, it consciously desists from tackling death in a philosophical tone. “It is a farcical comedy. I always want to entertain people, not lecture them, although this is far from a commercial subject, the way the story is told to make people enjoy and experience, rather than objectively sit outside it and analyse,” Kalki said adding that her play is a comment on the society.

“I wanted to convey how sometimes it takes death for us to wake up and appreciate the experience of life. Death inadvertently helps Ana live her life one last time. Also it's a comment on our modern lives, and how cheap and aggressive life has become, overpopulation, war, disease has all contributed to living becoming more about survival than experiencing life,” said Kalki who has received critical acclaim for her roles in movies like Dev D; Margarita, with a Straw among others.

The plot of the play thickens as Jo (Tariq Vasudeva), Ana’s estranged lover, and Ana’s rich godson, Born Kuber (Jim Sarbh), rushes in for shelter from a wild storm. It takes an intriguing turn when Dr. Zeus is summoned to investigate the stranger in the house.

Asked how she managed a highly talented crew, Kalki replied: “I love my cast, a bunch of talented and stubborn actors! Each one of them has a different belief on death, so that added to the play, rather than having one point of view, the play offers several. It was difficult for me to know when to let them explore and when to rein things in and edit things out,” she said. Feminism is a way of being for her, affirms the actor as like the character Ana, who is strong, stubborn, and an independent woman.

Having acted in plays like "Colour Blind" and "Skeleton Woman", Kalki’s connection with stage is older than movies. The actor feels that while she becomes an introvert in movies going deeper into the characters, theatre keeps her alert. “I love both mediums. Theatre is something that keeps me very alert and I am actively creating whether I am on stage or directing. In films, I feel I become more of an introvert, going deeper in the realism of a character,” she said.

Kalki also vouched that she will be back in stage soon. "I'm dying to go back on stage (pun intended).”

Asked about her next movies, she said: "I have finished 'Waiting' by Anu Menon. Another movie 'Jia aur Jia' is finally ready but I have not started any new film yet."

Fear of failure motivates me to work hard: Alia Bhatt http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Fear-of-failure-motivates-me-to-work-hard:-Alia-Bhatt--15386-416919.html http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Fear-of-failure-motivates-me-to-work-hard:-Alia-Bhatt--15386-416919.html#comments 2015-09-24 11:41:15 aditya http://hindi.way2movies.com//interviewssingle_hindi/Fear-of-failure-motivates-me-to-work-hard:-Alia-Bhatt--15386-416919.html At 22, she has turned out to be a bankable actor with films as diverse as “Highway”, “2 States” and “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania”. But getting the limelight at a young age has not made Alia Bhatt ignore the “fear of failure”. The actress says the thought of losing everything makes her put extra effort.

“Fear of failure is a constant thought and I can't say that I never think about it. Probably I always think about it, that's why I feel like I will always work harder,” Alia told.

Nevertheless, the daughter of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and yesteryear actress Soni Razdan also believes that “living on the fear of future makes you miss out on the beauty of the present”.

“So more than fearing it, I am just aware that this is what it is right now, but there is something called change which is the only constant and things will keep changing. I have to keep adapting, but nonetheless I have to always work hard and never fail."

“I can't forget the fact that hard work, dedication, respect of your fellow co-workers and the people that you interact with and, of course, the warmth and love that you give to them, is most important."

"And that is something that I will make sure of following thorughout my life,” said the young actress, who made her Bollywood debut in 2012 with Karan Johar's “Student of the Year” alongside Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan.

From playing a glamorous student in “Student of The Year”, a kidnapped rich girl in “Highway” and an IIM pass-out in “2 States” or an excited bride-to-be in “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania”, Alia is now ready to give competition to other actresses with Shahid Kapoor starrer “Shaandaar".

Directed by Vikas Bahl, the film is releasing on October 22.

Alia says "Shaandaar" has been a completely different experience.

“I feel like 'Shaandaar' is one step into a mad world which I have never been a part of. What set this film apart is the quirky, mad kind of space, which I really like. It has quirky, interesting and a beautiful looking vibe to it, but at the same time the emotions are real,” said Alia.

It's not just acting that Alia has got expertise in. She has shown her singing prowess too in Varun Dhawan starrer “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania”.

Asked when is she going to sing next, Alia said: “It will happen probably in my films only. I think I will stick to singing for my films only for now.”

Meanwhile, she is not only a favourite of leading filmmakers, but also a popular face in endorsement deals as well.

As the brand ambassador of Garnier PureActive Neem+Tulsi face wash, Alia was spotted enjoying an open-air bus ride atop the Garnier Bandwagon along with 10 lucky Garnier PureActive contest winners and her fans.

It wasn't the first time that the actress was seen connecting directly with her fans as during one of the promotion of "Shaandaar" she was also spotted wearing a dress which had doodles and sketches sent by her fans printed on it.

She says the fans' love makes her feel special.

“I don’t believe in avoiding my fans at all. It they are giving me appreciation, I have to be thankful and grateful for that appreciation. Honestly, I want to reach out to them and make them feel special because with their love, they make me feel special everyday,” said Alia.
