I was told to audition for a friend’s role in my initial days: Rajkummar Rao

Versatile actor Rajkummar Rao has had his share of struggle in Bollywood. The actor doesn’t shy away in admitting that he’s not one of those good looking men in Bollywood. He was told him ‘he was not tall enough to play the lead’, while some said ‘his eyebrows were not in shape’. The actor did face many rejections in the initial stage of his career. But his life took a turn with Dibakar Banerjee’s hit ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’.

In a recent interview, he said, “During my audition days, I would never get a hero’s role. I was told to audition for a friend’s role instead. I know I’m not a good looking man, but Dibakar saw something in me. He offered me ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’ and my life changed. And, here I am today.”

Rajkummar, who’s gearing up for his upcoming release, ‘Monica, O My Darling’ starring Radhika Apte and Huma Qureshi as well, said, “The film is a dark humoured crime mystery. I’m kicked about the audience to get a glimpse of the film. The cast has done an excellent job in this mad ride around love, heartbreaks, blackmail and a murder mystery. Trust me, it’s going to be perfect binge-worthy content.”

I’m ready for a reunion, I approached Lalit for reconciliation, but he isn’t ready: Jatin Pandit

Jatin and Lalit Pandit have many hits to their credit together. Be it ‘Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikander’, ‘Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge’, ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ and ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ among others. But, the duo parted ways in 2006 after their last composition for Aamir Khan’s ‘Fanaa’. 

When Jatin was questioned about having a reunion with Lalit through a concert, Jatin revealed, “It was not my decision to part ways, hence I’m not responsible for it. I’m always ready for a reunion, I even approached Lalit for reconciliation, but he isn’t ready. I’ve been refused so many times that now I’ve stopped saying. It’s okay, I respect everyone’s privacy.”

The music composer who misses composing with Lalit, added, “It’s not easy to forget a partnership, because you go through a lot of emotions with your ‘working partner’. Be it any achievement, success, failure, good or bad, all the emotions are lived together. So, obviously, I miss my partner. But, things can be resolved only when one is willing to sit and talk about the matter. Otherwise, nothing can happen.” 

Moreover, Jatin feels sad that even his brother, Lalit’s kids don’t talk to him. “I never felt bad when Lalit hosted events and had my name associated with it. Lalit never reached out to me even when he was performing our compositions somewhere. It saddens me the most that the children of my brother don’t come and talk to me,” said Jatin.

A fan asked Fatima why epilepsy patients are made to smell a stinking shoe. Fatima responded, “That’s a myth, that shouldn’t be done. Already it’s traumatic to come out of a seizure. So, the last thing you would want is to wake up to a stinking shoe! It has been done to me and it’s horrible!”

A fan asked Fatima, who’s suffering from epilepsy, if he can workout, the actor replied, “I workout, it keeps the endorphins coming. It makes me feel good. But still, one should consult their doctor for the same.”

Actress-turned-author Twinkle Khanna went down the memory lane by posting a video on her social media page on Children’s Day. Opening about her childhood days, Twinkle revealed how she followed a balloon seller on the streets of Mumbai.  

Twinkle wrote in her post, “An apocryphal tale around my childhood states that as a tiny toy in what was then called Cadbury Academy, I followed a balloon man out of the gate of the nursery. I was spotted on Linking Road, still following the balloon man, by my aunt’s hairdresser, Lucy and brought back home. It seems slightly unbelievable. How could I walk so much? What are the chances of Lucy seeing me on the street?”

The author recorded this video when she had gone out to get balloons for her daughter, Nitara’s birthday. She added in her caption and wrote, “But memory is a strange thing. Because I have heard this so many times, regardless of what really happened, I can see myself outside a particular shop on Linking Road. I have an image in my head of walking on that particular pavement and yes, I can see a wiry balloon man striding ahead of me. I hope the day I got these balloons for my daughter’s birthday, no one followed me.” she also added.
