Prolific Bengali actor Sabyasachi Chakrabarty, famed for playing private investigator "Feluda" in the film versions of the novels of Satyajit Ray, directed by Ray's son Sandip Ray, released an audio compilation of Rabindra Sangeet by Maitreyee Chakraborty.
The English translation of the Tagore lyrics are in Chakrabarty's rich baritone.
India's growing tribe of independent filmmakers lack viable platforms and the right distribution structure to push their growth, says debutant director Shailja Gupta, who took the online route to release her film "Walkaway".
"Walkaway", which mocks at the social obligations entrapping young Indian professionals settled in New York, had a modest release in the US in October 2010. But Gupta failed in her attempts to have it screened in Indian theatres.
Then, online was her only option.
Bipasha Basu admits she has given her best shot for Vikram Bhatt's "Raaz 3" and says she doubts if she can deliver a better performance than this.
"For me, in my filmography of work, this is the most challenging role I have done and I don't think I can get better than this," said Bipasha.
"Everyday was a struggle, I was emotionally drained, exhausted. I wanted to finish it soon because it was really disturbing me," she added.
"Raaz 3", slated to release Sep 7, deals with the subject of black magic.
Actress Kalki Koechlin, known for bringing freshness to her role with movies like "Dev D", "Shaitan" and "That Girl In Yellow Boots", says even though people perceive her as being different, she is always just herself.
"I am myself. It's not that I try to be different. I am myself. My upbringing and everything has made me different," Kalki, whose style and choices are different from a conventional Bollywood actress, told IANS.
"No matter how much I try to blend it, I am never able to blend it in. I have accepted that and am celebrating it," she added.
Remember the iconic scene from 1998 film "Ghulam", where Aamir Khan was shown racing against the train to win a bet? Something similar has been recreated by Ravi Kishan in his upcoming film "Jeena Hai Toh Thok Daal".
Ravi had seen Aamir's performance long back and was eager to do something similar ever since.
"Raviji couldn't believe it when director Manish Vatsalya told him about the scene. He was so stunned that his dream scene was being offered to him and it just fit so well in 'Jeena Hai Toh Thok Daal'," said a source.
