Filmmaker Karan Johar, who will bring Aishwarya and Anushka on screen together in his upcoming film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, says he can’t wait to direct both the actresses as he has previously not WORKEDwith any of them.

The film also features Ranbir Kapoor.

“The film that I am directing has Ranbir (Kapoor), Anushka (Sharma) and Aishwarya. I can’t wait to direct Anushka and Aishwarya as these are the two girls I haven’t WORKED with at all,” the filmmaker said here on Thursday at the red carpet of HT Mumbai’s Most Stylish Awards.

“I am very excited,” he added.

Further, he revealed “there is a lot of fashion and style to look forward to in the film”.

Anushka Sharma had earlier revealed to an online portal that the film is not a triangular love story and she plays the female lead in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. The film is slated to be released in June 2016.

Meanwhile, KJo is set to produce Shakun Batra’s Kapoor & Sons, starring Alia Bhatt, Fawad Afzal Khan and Sidharth Malhotra. And rumours are rife that Sidharth and Alia — who are reportedly dating in real life — will be playing brother-sister in the film.

On being asked about it, the filmmaker said,” There is a triangular love interest in the film. Barring Fawad and Sidharth who play brothers, nobody else is related to them.

“It’s a very stylish film. The cast is stylish. We are excited about the film.”

Anushka Sharma talks about dating Virat Kohli

Does being under the scanner constantly put the relationship under strain?
I had a back problem so I’ve been going to the physiotherapist at the Kokilaben Hospital. Someone took a picture when I was getting out of the hospital. Now they’re making it seem like I developed the back problem after my trip to Australia. I was like WHAT? What does my back problem have to do with my Australia trip? People are obsessed and they want to go on and on about the same thing.The back problem happened on the NH10 set. You don’t do that to a male star. It’s because they don’t take heroines seriously. They assume we should be answering questions about our personal lives because that’s the only exciting thing about us. It’s not. That’s why I don’t choose to talk about it. Because we take our WORK seriously. And if you don’t understand the seriousness of my WORK, why should I answer your questions? I don’t hide my relationship. We go about it normally. I go to see him, people know that. It’s not like I’m saying no to photographs, or stopping people from clicking us, or hiding and meeting him. We’re in a relationship just the way anyone else would be.

It becomes big news when he’s blowing kisses to you…

Yaa. Well…

Is it frustrating that being a public figure, you can’t react to this PDA like a normal girl would?

No, I just felt embarrassed. My brother still makes fun of me. I was embarrassed ya. It’s a stadium and people were turning around and looking at me. I felt shy.

Does this take a toll on both of you?
No. We’re both cut off from everything. When it takes away from your work then it’s a problem. It doesn’t take a toll on your relationship. Virat and I are quite strong. But it definitely does on your work. He wants to focus on his work. The baggage of his relationship in the media is something else. If he scores well, it’s attributed to me, if he doesn’t play well, it’s because of me. I’m blamed for everything. I don’t understand. But all this doesn’t harm our relationship. I wouldn’t be with someone if we were not on the same wavelength. During the England tour, it did take a toll, not on our relationship, but on Virat. What happened was unfair. We weren’t prepared for it. For him more so because he’s a sportsman, he plays to win. It’s our stupidity that we start paying attention to these things. Later you wonder why I was even responding to the stupid things. After that episode, now it doesn’t make any difference to us. If your film is a hit it’s all okay, if you score a century, it’s all okay. The best thing is to keep silent and let your work speak.

Considering that Bombay Velvet is set in the 60s, the makers have decided to adapt the style of that era in every aspect, including music. This era which gave us some of the most memorable classics will be revived in the film.

The makers of this romantic-thriller have got the rights of the iconic song of Geeta Dutt, ‘Jaata Kahaan Hain Diwane’ from the 1956 Dev Anand starrer CID. The original song was picturised on the legendary Waheeda Rehman and now, it will have a more contemporary feel and has been picturised on Anushka Sharma who plays a 60s superstar singer named Rosie Noronha. In fact, it is by singing this song that Rosie gets noticed as a singer in a club and becomes the marquee performer at Johnny Balraj’s (played Ranbir Kapoor) ‘Bombay Velvet’.

Set against the backdrop of ambition, love, greed, and jazz, Bombay Velvet is inspired by the BOOK‘Mumbai Fables’ written by Gyan Prakash. Directed by Anurag Kashyap and produced by Fox Star Studios, the film also stars Karan Johar, Kay Kay Menon and Manish Choudhary and is slated to release on May 15, 2015.

The campaign for Whitening Talc Touch, conceptualised by Interface Communications, highlights the benefits of talc that the deo offers without the tell-tale patches

 

nivea-TVC

Nivea India, an affiliate of Beiersdorf AG, has expanded its range of deodorants for women with the launch of Nivea Whitening Talc Touch. A new TV campaign featuring BRAND ambassador Anushka Sharma has been released to support the launch. The campaign has been conceptualised by Interface Communications.

Continuing in the vein of the earlier Nivea deo ads, the TVC for Nivea Whitening Talc Touch shows Anushka getting ready for an outing and dazzling her date with her fresh look. All the while the voice-over tells us that Anushka is confident that her ‘talc’ will not show its tell-tale patches. In the end it is revealed that Anushka is, in fact, wearing the Nivea Whitening Talc Touch with micro powder that gives the additional benefits of talc in a deodorant.

Rakshit Hargave, MANAGING DIRECTOR, Nivea India, remarked, “Two-thirds of all female deo users in India are dual users of deodorant and talc. Therefore, the concept of a caring deodorant, which gives additional benefits of talc, is extremely relevant for our consumers.”

Commenting on the campaign, Rakesh Menon, Creative Director, Interface Communications, said, “The problem with talcum powder is that it leaves visible patches on the underarms. This is what Nivea’s new Talc Touch Deodorant wanted to address. The idea came from the insight that while women love to go sleeveless, using talcum powder on the underarms makes it impossible to do so. Since this deodorant comes with micro powder that doesn’t show, it gives women the confidence to wear what they want.”

Anushka Sharma has been a busy lady lately – she’s only just wrapped up the promotional rounds/release of her debut production, NH10, and now she’s off to Bangkok to shoot for an ad film. The actress was spotted at the Mumbai International Airport very early on Thursday morning, and she looks as lovely as ever. If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to look naturally radiant, Anushka’s look here is a good one to copy. She’s likely to be wearing some form of foundation/concealer and it’s clear that she’s wearing eyeliner, but the overall look is very fresh and natural – almost as if she “woke up like this.” Just remember to smudge your eyeliner like she has so it isn’t very defined! :)

Anushka Sharma’s maiden production as well as starring her, NH10 released last week and the film has been praises galore from the critics. The actress received a lot of appreciation for her strong role. But look who went gaga over the film recently!

Well that’s none other than her cricketer boyfriend Virat Kohli. It seems Virat took time off from his practice sessions for the World Cup to watch his girlfriend’s film and here is what he had to say. He expressed his praises for the film on Twitter and Anushka even thanked him a blush emoticon. How cute is that!

Just watched and i am blown away. What a brilliant film and specially an outstanding performance by my love @AnushkaSharma. SO PROUD:)


Anushka Sharma is on a career high, what with her latest film ‘NH 10′ too performing well at the box-office. Not only has the actress received critical acclaim, but has also won praises from the masses. In a quick chat, Anushka talks about the success of ‘NH 10′, her reaction as a producer, upcoming films ‘Bombay Velvet’ & ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ and more. Read on…

Anushka are you happy with the response ‘NH 10′ has received?

The response has been incredible. It is superb the way in which people have understood the film. It is phenomenal. We didn’t say it directly. The film is conveying the message in a subtle manner but people got it. The collections have been stupendous. It is a great situation for me.

Were you expecting this kind of response?

I was expecting this response. I did. I knew we had a good film in hand but I didn’t think that so many people would like it. I expected it to be critically exclaimed but the film is doing well commercially too!

Has this boosted your confidence in such movies and will you continue to back them?

I always had faith in certain kind of cinema. It wasn’t a smooth ride to make ‘NH 10′, unfortunately. People have this tendency to continue doing the tried and tested methods. This didn’t fall into that category. We didn’t have the typical commercial viability as it didn’t have songs and all. Now that there is credibility as producers, it will be easier to make films and hopefully it will be smoother than this.

People have praised your choice of work. So do you prefer films like ‘NH 10′ over romantic or comedy films?

I love romantic comedies. But I love other genres too. I can understand films like ‘NH 10′. Things which are obvious, I have never liked and may be because of that I have done few films. I have the ability to spot different film. Good films work and not the formulas.

Has the success of ‘NH 10′ boosted your confidence to do more such movies as an actor?

I was always inclined towards doing such roles. No one was actually forcing me to do them. Now I just hope this opens doors for more such films.

Which was the most emotionally draining sequence in the film?

It was the climax – the portion where I shout.

After ‘Band Baaja Baarat’, this role is considered as one of your best till date. How do you take this as a compliment?

I think the reaction has been fantastic. What really matters is that all my co-actors and directors have been expressive of their appreciation. But to me the best compliment came from the editor of my film. The editor told me it was easy to edit me, that felt good. And the other one is the writer Sudeep Sharma, who told me that I have taken the film to another level.

Would you support newcomers as a producer?

Definitely. We worked Navdeep and sudeep and the idea is to work with fresh talent who has the sensibilities like us.

Retrospectively, is there any part of the film’s process, which you think you could have done better?

I wish we had marketed the film better.

Since you were the producer, did you sub-consciously or consciously think about how the film will perform at the box-office?

You don’t think that way. You think of making a good film. And then the money follows. If we do good work, then the success follows. At least, this is how it works for me. We focused on the moment. I don’t live in future. The present time matters. We were playing to our strengths.

What figures are you looking at for ‘NH 10’?

Not looking at anything right now.

The film is drawing comparisons to ‘Eden Lake’. What is your take on that?

It is like saying every love story is the same. ‘NH 10′ is a road trip yaar. What different you expect. The template of the film is same but the way it is dealt is different. It will not be right to compare it with ‘Eden Lake’. I have not seen the film as well.

‘PK’ ended 2014 on a good note for you. ‘NH 10′ has made sure you have a good start in 2015. How excited are you for ‘Bombay Velvet’ and ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’?

I am very excited because ‘Bombay Velvet’ is different. I am happy with the films that I am doing and the different directors I am working with. You will get to see different characters of me. That is what I wanted to do.

Lastly, after a long time your professional life is in the focus. How does it feel?

Thank you so much! Obviously, I will have to do something about it and you guys will not help. What else would you want to be known for? I am not someone who has discussed my personal life and wanted to be in the news for any other thing apart from my work. If that was the case, then you would have seen me in the news even when I wasn’t doing films. It is not my job to be spoken about. I would appreciate that I am in the news only for the right reasons.

Anushka Sharma, who made her production debut with NH10, is in a happy space now as the film has recovered its making cost of Rs 13 Cr by making the collections of 15.40 Cr till Monday, with an excellent word of mouth.

When asked Anushka if she had expected these numbers coming in or more, she said, “Honestly I expected nothing, I am always been like that. You should just do your work and you should just kind of make a good film and then numbers will follow. It’s not something that you can pre-decide or think too much about it. So we didn’t expect anything, we didn’t put any kind of mark for us.”

With the success of her debut venture in production, when asked what will be the strategy of her production house Clean Slate Films, she said, “We will try different genres and make good films. Pick up different, unique stories. Work with people like Navdeep and Sudeep that we are working on couple of scripts with them already. It is something that should be different likeNH10. Clean Slate is open to new talent, work with people who are uniquely talented. We will work on scripts everything starts from scripts and ends on scripts.”

Further talking about getting stars for the films under her production house she says, “We will approach actors, not stars. If the actor is a star that’s a different thing. Our scripts are going to be a star for us. Today even younger lot of actors also look for roles. I don’t necessarily need to act in every film that our company produces.”
