Salman don’t take celebrity status seriously




Mumbai, June 6: Superstar Salman Khan says he is a present living person and does not take his stardom seriously.

Salman asked what he wants to achieve in life: “I live my life moment to moment. If I can make this moment the best one, I know I will get something out of it…

“As an actor I’m doing my job. The persona you are seeing on screen is a contribution of more than 100 people from the different departments like camera, make-up and lights. How can I take that madness that you guys (media and common people) call stardom so seriously? I don’t.”

The “Dabangg” star said it was very difficult for him to play an innocent boy in his upcoming film “Tubelight”.

“(The) character in the film took me back to my school days. Sohail and I used to recollect so many memories of our childhood… Playing an innocent and pure character at an age when you are no more innocent, when you have experienced the corrupt world, was quite a task.”

“Our understanding of films is very different. His approach is more realistic, he comes from documentary filmmaking. On the other hand, I am into commercial Bollywood. Perhaps that is why when these two meet, a new style is born.”

However, he said he won’t work with Kabir if a script is not good.

Salman also commented on the success of Aamir Khan’s “Dangal”: “As long as no one is losing their money, I am happy. If the audience loves the film, I am happy.”

“Tubelight” releases on June 25.

1. Gangster

The under-cover policeman: Hashmi first played this role in ‘Gangster’, but goes on to play this type of character in ‘Jannat 2’ as well. Both roles are vastly different from each other.



From a lounge singer to an undercover cop, Hashmi makes a sly switch from smitten to self-seeking in the deftly executed Gangster.And his performance was worthy of an applause.

2. Awarapan

This one remains as one of the most favorite movies of Hashmi ‘the performer’. Directed by Mohit Suri, Awarapan in 2007 broke the kissing jinx for Hashmi and put him in the business as one angry young fella willing to take a chance with life.

If you really haven’t watched this comforting piece of cinema, go watch it for its amazing music, dialogues and the beautiful background score.

3. Jannat

The obsessed lover: The year 2008 marked a turning point for Hashmi when he played a conman in the crime drama Jannat. This character trait is played by Hashmi in ‘Murder’, which shot him into the limelight of Bollywood.

4. Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai

Making a mark in front of an actor like Ajay Devgn is not an easy task, but Emraan played the role of Shoeb brilliantly. The actor was amazing in this film, but as it was a massy film, his acting talent was ignored.

5. Hamari Adhuri Kahani

This is the best of Emraan Hashmi till date. A matured role performed wonderfully by the actor. Believe us, if not awards, the actor at least deserved Best Actor awards nomination.

The way he had handled his character, we are sure every woman would have fallen for him. But, ‘HAK’ was a flop at the box office, and once again Emraan didn’t get his due appreciation as an actor.

Here’s wishing the loverboy Emraan Hashmi a very Happy Birthday!!

Important for celebrities to speak up, bring change: Deepika Padukone




New Delhi, March 24: As multiple Bollywood films are celebrating how weaknesses can be turned into strengths, leading actress Deepika Padukone says it is important for celebrities to use their place of influence and power to bring about change in society.

“I think it is extremely important for those who are in positions of influence or power to bring about social change. It is extremely important for them to speak up about whatever issue it might be,” Deepika told news agency IANS in interview.

Of late, film actors and filmmakers are attempting storylines which have a strong underlying message that can bring change in society. The latest example is Rani Mukerji’s “Hichki”, which talks about how a woman with Tourette Syndrome, a neuropsychiatric disorder, makes it her strength and becomes a teacher.

Deepika, one of Bollywood’s top-earning actresses, believes people can see if you do not have genuine connect or if it is not authentic.

“For many years, people always said, ‘You know you are successful, you should do work in social sectors as well or associate with an NGO’. There were so many options (for me), but I didn’t feel like I was being honest to them.

“It didn’t come naturally to me until I came across mental health, also because of my personal experience,” said the actress, who had earlier opened up about her battle with depression.

She feels speaking up for a cause has to be an “organic” process.

“I don’t think there is any fixed time as to when one should do it. I think you should do it when you feel it is right.”

Deepika was here along with her mother and younger sister to launch a report on Public Perception Towards Mental Health in India by her foundation The Live Love Laugh Foundation (TLLLF), which aims to reduce the stigma around mental health.

The report’s findings indicate that a majority of people feel that mental illness is still considered a severe disorder like schizophrenia and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

But are celebrities not more prone to depression and stress, especially when they are constantly under the scanner, more so with the emergence of social media?

“No. I think I have understood the correlation between consumption of social media and when it helps. I always believed that whatever you consume, you consume in moderation.

“If you consume too much, it could have various sorts of impact, not just on your mental health but physical health too. I know people who are up at social media in the wee hours and probably letting it eat up their sleep time.

“As long as anything that you consume, whether it is social media or otherwise, is done in moderation, and you are aware about your social health, I think you are on the right path,” said the 32-year-old.

At the end of the day, the only thing that matters to her is “peace of mind”.

Deepika said she wants to see India as the happiest nation in the world.

“My vision for the Foundation is that we become the happiest country in the world. I see Bhutan having their happiness minister, and even some of the Scandinavian countries have the highest rate of mental happiness and I want India to be there, sooner or later,” she signed off.
