Mumbai, Dec 19: Bollywood’s actress Fatima Sana Shaikh’s last release “Thugs of Hindostan” bombed at the box office, leaving her heartbroken and sad.

Despite the presence of industry giants like Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif, the “Thugs…” fizzled out and both audiences and critics wrote it off for its weak storyline and direction.

Interacting with the media at Netflix web-series ‘Selection Day’ premiere on Tuesday here, Fatima said: “Yeah.. it hasn’t done well. It is very heartbreaking.

“It is very sad because we all tried to make a good film but unfortunately, it didn’t do well. People didn’t like it so, I am feeling very bad for it.”

Fatima is currently working on a project with Rajkummar Rao on Anurag Basu’s directorial — a sequel to “Life In A Metro”, though she said: “I don’t think it is called that.”

The “Dangal”-famed actress is looking forward to “Selection Day” which is a story of two brothers and their father who wants his sons to pursue cricket as their career.

“I am really excited and looking forward to see it because I found the trailer really interesting. I am also happy that lot of Indian shows are being made for Netflix and we (actors) are getting more opportunities. Even writers, directors and technicians.

“Now, we have lot of options in terms of viewing and performing. So, I feel it’s great that such show and series are out,” she said.

Speaking about her debut in “Dangal” which revolved around wrestling, Fatima said: “I run away from playing sports. It was the requirement for my film (Dangal) therefore, I had to do it otherwise, sports and I don’t get along really well.”

Thugs Of Hindostan, reportedly made on a budget of over Rs. 300 crore, collected a little over Rs. 151 crore in India. The film is releasing in China (a hot market for Aamir Khan’s films) next week, which may help the film financially.

Mira-shahid

Mumbai, Jan 19: Actor Shahid Kapoor says he and his wife Mira have a different approach when it comes to parenting. He says she tells him to calm down a bit when it comes to their two children, while he feels she is “too casual”.

Shahid opened up about his married life, parenting, his film career and more on an upcoming episode of “Famously Filmfare Season 2”, to go live on Colors Infinity, Colors Infinity HD, Voot and Jio on Sunday, read a statement.

On being asked if being protective about his children was a ripple effect of his parent’s separation, Shahid said: “My wife tells me that I am a little obsessive and protective and that I need to calm down a little bit. I tell her that she is too casual. Having said that, we try and find the middle ground which I think is good for the kids because you need to have both types of parents.

“If both are too obsessive or both are too careless I don’t think that works, so you need to find that balance.”

Shahid and Mira got married in 2015. They have a daughter named Misha and son named Zain.

Moving away from centrestage is heartbreaking for any actor: Abhishek Bachchan

Mumbai, Jan 19: Actor Abhishek Bachchan’s last few movies before his sabbatical that ended with “Manmarziyaan” were majorly second leads in big budget movies. He says it’s heartbreaking for any actor who has been at centrestage to move away.

Asked how much of a problem it is to stand behind a bigger star, he told filmmaker and “Koffee With Karan” host Karan Johar: “It is heartbreaking to any actor who has been centrestage to be shadowed by another actor in the lead.”

“The industry is a brutal place. I don’t think anyone is entitled to say that I am who I am so I deserve this. No, you have to earn it. Moving from centre to left is heartbreaking but you have to use that hurt to inspire yourself to get back into the centre again.”

In the upcoming episode of “Koffee with Karan”, to be aired on Star World on Sunday, Abhishek was joined on the couch by his sister Shweta Bachchan Nanda, a statement said.

Last year, Abhishek was seen in “Manmarziyaan”, which came two years after he featured in “Housefull 3”. He says his sabbatical from the industry was a result of a self-realisation about complacency towards his work.

Karan asked Abhishek: “Is there a reason you took this backseat from cinema, did you feel the pressure of what was happening in your career, that’s why?”

Abhishek replied: “It’s tricky Karan. I don’t think it was the pressure of what was happening. Rather it was more about my approach towards my work which I thought was incorrect. I was becoming very complacent and comfortable.”

“To call a spade a spade, I was part of huge films, huge budgets, huge stars, huge collections, everything was hunky dory. I had no pressure on me because I was standing behind somebody else who takes all the pressure. I was making lots of money and so were those films…it became very easy. I didn’t come to industry to stand behind anyone,” he added.
