Parineeti is in no Hurry to Choose Films

Untitled-11Kill Dil starring Ranveer Singh, Ali Zafar, Govinda and Parineeti Chopra is ready for release on 14th November. This film is directed by Shaad Ali. Parineeti Chopra is just five films old in the industry. She is very alert while choosing films and she doesn’t wait for one role which will take her career to a new height. She says, “I have done roles that were performance-oriented. Alia, Sonakshi and many others were doing all kind of films, and hence, were waiting for that one performance-oriented character. But, I started my career with one such role. So I am not waiting for a career-defining film now. But I will always accept good films with demanding performances.”
After her film Kill Dill Parineeti Chopra doesn’t have any film in her hands. She says, “I have been getting offers, but the scripts are not exciting enough. So, there is no film in my hand currently. I don’t want to do a film just for the sake of it. I will have to wait for my next film to release to see if anything interesting comes up.”
Parineeti Chopra is busy these days promoting the film ‘Kill Dil’ in which we will see her in a different role. We wish her luck for this film.

What Govinda Says About Salman Khan?

Untitled-4Once upon a time, there friendship was considered to be an ideal in the Bollywood but the two stars of different genres were in the media for a while on the broken bond. To patch up the things, Salman Khan offered a movie to Govinda but amazingly, Govinda turned down the offer though Salman tried to convince the former in every possible way.
When Govinda was questioned about this, he said, “I refused Salman’s film because I didn’t want to do an art film. Unki film ka jo subject hai woh art film jaisa hai. I did Partner with Salman so jo Partner jaisi film karta hai wo art film karega to acha nei lagega na. That was my thought.”
When he was asked about the support of Salman in his career, he said, “You know I did a film with Ravi Chopra jisme Salman ne guest appearance kiya tha… Unhone wo mere kehne pe kiya tha. If you see, after Partner I have never tried to involve Salman career wise. If fact, I have never troubled anyone for that matter. Because I think if someone is a good human being and has a good heart toh uska fayda nei uthana chaiye. Aisa nei lagna chaiye ki dosti fayda ke liye ki hai. Its very important that your relationship should be beyond work and beyond what people say. I and Salman have been friends even before we started working together. Maine kabhi socha nai tha ki hamari dosti career mein kaam ayegi. When I did Partner, I never thought our friendship would work career wise too”.

BJP will Protest Against the Release of ‘Kill Dill’

Untitled-16YRF’a new film ‘Kill Dill’ which stars Pakistani actor Ali Zafar along with Govinda, Ranveer Singh and Parineeti Chopra is criticized by Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP). BJP warned filmmakers and production houses to stop working with Pakistani artists. They took this action because Pakistan violated the ceasefire along the Jammu and Kashmir border. Vice-president of BJP, Sanjay Upadhyay said that they will protest against the release of ‘Kill Dill’ as it features a Pakistani artist.
He said, “After the state assembly elections, we will be launching a stir because whatever is happening at the border is shocking. Our film industry provides employment to so many people from Pakistan but do they give our actors an opportunity in their films? The producers and directors need to understand that we have ample talent in the country. Instead of scouting for Pakistani artistes, they should give Indian talent a chance.”
He said that they will leave no stone unturned to oppose any production house or filmmaker employing Pakistani actors. He added, “We will ensure that this practice stops. They need to respect our country.”
