Evelyn Sharma: Ishqedarriyaan is my debut film

7 hours ago

After playing itsy-bitsy role in films like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Yaariyan, Main Tera Hero, Kuch Kuch Locha Hai, etc, hottie Evelyn Sharma is now gearing up for her first solo lead role in the upcoming film Ishqedarriyaan. Despite being part of the above-mentioned successful films, Evelyn counts Ishqedarriyaan as her debut film.

"Yes it's kind of my debut film. I mostly did multi-starrers with big cast. They were comedy flicks. I have done known films like Yaariyan, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, etc. Since Ishaqedaariyan is my own film, it's a different feeling. You will get to see new side of Evelyn but it's not like I am super anxious or nervous. Although, there is lot of pressure as a performer, because all this while I had a 20-minute role and now I have to perform for 2 long hours."

Having said that, Evelyn clears that her role in Kuch Kuch Locha Hai was equally significant. »

9 hours ago

While perfectionist Aamir Khan's kitty never had a dearth of superhits or good films and he has always been meticulous in choosing his projects (which would reap him benefits unfailingly), to our surprise the superstar still missed out on few films that created new records in Indian Cinema. And, interestingly the films that he rejected were the career-defining roles of Bollywood Badshah, Shah Rukh Khan. Regardless of their hit/flop status, the films went on to sway audiences' hearts and Srk emerged as the 'King'. So, check out the movies that were Shah Rukh's gain but Aamir's loss!

Darr:Reportedly, the role of an obsessive lover that Srk played was initially offered to Aamir. However, as Aamir rejected it went to Srk and the film was a superhit.
