To many, it is surprising that Anurag Basu is the same man who helmed "Kites" and "Barfi!". The director, who believes touching a hundred hearts is more important than Rs.100 crore box-office takings, says versatility often turns out to be a disadvantage in the film industry.
"I personally feel it is a disadvantage to be a versatile director. Producers don't know where to place you because they don't know what next you will come up with," Basu told IANS.

Somewhere deep within the corroding flamboyance of filmdom, there is a tale of heartbreaking compromises and immorality tucked away from the naked, tearless eye. Madhur Bhandarkar nearly gets to the nerve centre of that world, and then pulls back just before he's really gotten there.
After proving she can wield a sword, ride a horse and do the malkhamb effortlessly, actress Kratika Sengar, who wowed viewers as the fiery 'Jhansi Ki Rani', is all set to showcase her prowess over classical Bharatnatyam in the upcoming Ganesha Chaturthi special episode of "Pavitra Rishta".
"I am performing a classical dance to the song 'Man mohini' from 'Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam' in Ganesha Chaturthi celebrations in 'Pavitra Rishta'. The evocative lyrics and the drama infused by Shankar Mahadevan's spirited vocal style make this song a personal favourite," said the actress.
Bollywood continues to inspire fashion among youngsters, and if you're one among those who fancies Kareena Kapoor's outfits from "Heroine", here's your chance to grab them online.
Apparel brand Jealous 21 joined hands with the Madhur Bhandarkar-film for creating its clothes range, inspired by Kareena's glamourous look. Now, online portal www.fashionara.com is opening up pre-orders for it.

Based on Thai horror flick "Alone", Pon Kumaran's "Charulatha" is a poorly executed film with no thrills. The film treads a cliched path with disappointing CGI, loud and jarring background score and uninspiring acting. Priyamani's final act is the only saving grace in the entire film.
