How do you rate yourself as a dancer? Aamir Khan thinks you’re damn good?
My passion for dance has been there for as long as I can remember. Watching Michael Jackson dance effortlessly, definitely fuelled that passion. Though I don’t think I am a great dancer hence I practice a lot to achieve all that I can when I am on the dance floor. I would love to do some live stage shows hopefully soon! If the right opportunity arises to take part in a dance concert, then I’ll certainly consider it.
Tell us a bit more about your fashion line? How did that happen?

“I was a young striving cinematographer at the time,” recalls Phedon Papamichael (3:10 to Yuma) who first met filmmaker Alexander Payne (About Schmidt) at UCLA Film School. “I had a job interview with him for his UCLA graduate film which I did not get.

It wasn’t until Sideways  when he called out of the blue and asked me if »
Ever the perfectionist – the international superstar Hrithik Roshan will ensure every aspect of his new action thriller film Bang, Bang goes to plan by enlisting the help of two body doubles to perfect the right climatic feel for the film.
The high-octane blockbuster Bang, Bang, which is the Indian version of Hollywood film Knight And Day, will have specially choreographed stunt sequences designed by international stunt supremo Andy Armstrong (The Amazing Spider Man 2). Hrithik Roshan will have two of the best body doubles in the business to undertake the wide angle, panoramic sequences, whilst the superstar himself will do all the close-up stunts.
Hrithik, who underwent brain surgery in July 2013, resumed filming of Bang, Bang this month in the wintery hill station of Shimla with co-star Katrina Kaif. The film calls for the action superstar to perform some death-defying stunts, including an adrenaline-inducing 40-foot rooftop chase in a populated area of Shimla. »

2013 has offered some of the most memorable jodis to date, such as Aditya Roy Kapur and Shraddha Kapoor in Aashiqui 2, or the mesmerising couple formed by Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela.
This year is looking equally exciting, as many couples will fill the screen in the forthcoming twelve months. Some actors will monopolize cinemas with several releases during the year, while other will save themselves for big projects. 2014 will bring many new couples, actors and actresses that will work together for the first time, so entertainment is assured.

Chicago – Cameron Diaz is on a noble mission in 2014. Her crusade is about women’s body issues, to encourage girls – in addition to female teens and adults – to pay mind to body image and power.
