Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt are making up for lost time spent apart in quarantine by jetting out of the city for a holiday. Where you ask? In Alia’s happy place, amidst some sun, sand and sea. By the looks of it, one time was just not enough for the actress, who was seen getting her dose of vitamin Sea early this February. Pictures of the cuties at the airport got both, Ranbir and Alia taking over the top trends on social media, and with their summer fashion game on, who can really blame them?
Moving on to another little something that warmed our heart today… Salman Khan has gone by many names, but thanks to Rakhi Sawant, he is now an ‘angel’. The reality star took to her Instagram handle this morning to inform fans of yet another actor of generosity and kindness by Salman. Sawant released a video thanking Salman for funding her mother’s tumour operation and providing them with the best doctors available for the treatment. With folded hands and a grateful heart she thanked the actor for his kind deed,((can add video here instead of reading what she said)) “Parmeshwar ne, Jesus ne Salman Khan ko angel banake humare jeevan mein bheja. Aur mere liya aaj Salman Khan khade rahe hain mera operation kara rahe hain. Unki puri family mere liye khadi rahi hai Mein parmeshwar ko dhanyawaad karti hun, aapko dhanyawaad karti hun.”
Meanwhile, ‘Adipurush’ director Om Raut got chatty about Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan‘s extensive prep for their characters. Spilling the beans he that his leading men have undergone a remarkable physical transformation for their roles that have massive action scenes. “There is a lot of physical transformation that Prabhas has undergone and he continues to work on it even now as we shoot. With Saif Ali Khan, it is evident in the pictures…” is all Raut was will to say.
Filmfare Award-winning actress Taapsee Pannu has been on a roll. After ‘Rashmi Rocket’, ‘Looop Lapeta’ and ‘Shabaash Mithu’ the actress seems to have landed a leading role in an upcoming thriller. Our sources tell us that if all goes well, Taapsee’s next may just be a thriller. The story goes that Taapsee had seen Ajay Bahl’s ‘Section 375’ and almost promised each other that they will work together. Turns out that Bahl got a call to direct a film and was told upfront that Taapsee was already on board.
Another director-actor duo making news today was director Ramin Bahrani and Priyanka Chopra. The actress found herself coming to the director’s rescue when he reportedly faced a racial slur. Describing the incident, Bahrani who is up for an Oscar for ‘Best Adapted Screenplay’, said that a man shouted at him and asked him to ‘go back’ to his country. That’s when Priyanka stepped in to defend him and asks if America was not built on the back of immigrants in search of the American dream, a life of freedom, opportunity, and a safe place not only for themselves but for their families.
