"And singing playback for none other than Kajol, who's 'Awara bhawre' moves I imitated and felt happy when my family said I looked just like her doing it! My memories in college apart from studying lots of math include lots of singing as vocalist for our Indian band in the US. And now being given this chance in the movies is absolutely surreal," she added.

Rhea Chakraborty to turn showstopper for Urvashi Joneja

Actress Rhea Chakraborty will be seen walking the runway for designer Urvashi Joneja's range titled 'Away' at the forthcoming Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2018.

"Since this season's collection 'Away' takes its inspiration from the concept of breaking free, it perfectly resonates with my belief of self-liberation. Besides being a free spirit, I've always been an avid fashion lover, and can't wait to walk the ramp for Urvashi Joneja at Lakme Fashion Week this season!" Rhea said in a statement.

Talking about her showstopper, Joneja said, "Being the classic girl-next-door, Rhea is someone every girl can relate to easily. She completely resonates the ideology of a self-made girl who's gone beyond the norms to achieve great success. She represents the modern, independent girl and I could not have asked for a better muse to showcase this collection."

The designer will be showcasing her range on the day 1 of the five-day fashion week, which commences on 22 August.

Other designers who will be showcasing their collections are Rajesh Pratap Singh, Payal Singhal, Nachiket Barve, AM:PM by Ankur and Priyanka Modi, Abraham and Thakore among many others.

Rajkummar Rao salutes policemen

The Newton actor tweeted, "It was such an honour to address the most prestigious SVPNPA in Hyderabad. I salute the courage and selflessness with which our cops perform their duties. Thank you SVPNPA."

SVPNPA is the national institute for training of IPS officers before they are sent to their respective state cadres to carry out their duties.

The announcement was made via a statement on Saturday.

Reddy's collection aims to "capture that fleeting magical moment before day ends and night begins".

"In our world, The Twilight Zone sees flowers - before folding up for the night - take on a bewitching and bold reincarnation through intricate embroideries and expertly crafted fabric.

"Silhouettes carry a sense of freedom and unbridled joy; sheer is abundant but it's more about strength than skin; and palettes take on the golden hour, the many shades of grey that reside between night and day, and the sudden darkness that envelopes us right when you step out of the twilight zone."

LFW will be held August 22-26.

Rajinikanth praises 'The Answer'

Actor-politician Rajinikanth has praised the Victor Banerjee-starrer The Answer, which traces the life of yoga guru Paramhansa Yogananda's late American devotee James Donald Walters -- popularly known as Swami Kriyananda.

Ahead of the film's release on 31 August, Rajinikanth saw the film in Chennai and was happy that it spreads the message of spiritualism.

"The film is a moving tale of a guru-shishya relationship. Picturised beautifully, it will surely resonate with the followers of Guru Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda," Rajinikanth said in a statement.

The much-loved actor has been following Mahavatar Babaji, Paramhansa Yogananda and has been practicing Kriya Yoga for a long time.

"Rajni sir is so unassuming - as he is known to be. The way he readily agreed to see the film shows his stature not only as an ultimate superstar but also as a profound human being. We are very happy that we could show him the film", said Madhureeta Anand, who is the Worldwide Business Consultant for the film.

The film is based on the true story of an American, James Donald Walters (played by Leonidas Gulaptis), later christened as Swami Kriyananda and his encounter with spiritual master Paramhansa Yogananda in California, which resulted in his devotion to the guru and his teachings.

Paramhansa Yogananda authored the "Autobiography of A Yogi".

The Answer is backed by Pia Singh of DLF, directed by Pavan Kaul and distributed by Panaroma Studios Distribution LLP.

Gulzar as the father in new book

Gulzar is widely known as a filmmaker, lyricist and writer. But a new book by his daughter, Meghna Gulzar, presents a facet of the icon that few have been aware of - as a father.

Titled "Because he is", the announcement of the book's publication was made on Saturday, Gulzar's 84 birthday, by publisher HarperCollins.

"In iridescent prose, his daughter, Meghna, documents his life, revealing the man behind the legend: in every way a hands-on father, who prepared her for school without fail every day, braiding her hair and tying her shoelaces, and who despite his busy career in cinema, always made it a point to end his workday at 4 p.m. because her school ended at that time, and who wrote a book for her birthday every year till she was thirteen," HarperCollins said in a statement.

The book is said to carry "never-seen-before" photographs of Gulzar, and, according to the publisher, offers an incredible insight into the bond between a father and a daughter.

'Bareilly Ki Barfi' clocks a year, Rajkummar nostalgic

As Bareilly Ki Barfi clocked a year since its release on Saturday, actor Rajkummar Rao reminisced the joint effort that went behind making the entertainer.

The 33-year-old actor tweeted, "One year of Bareilly Ki Barfi. Thank you guys for all the love and affection that you've showered upon the film and Badass Babua Pritam Vidrohi.

"This wouldn't have been possible without you Ashwiny Iyer and Nitesh Tiwari sir and my lovely Kriti Sanon, Ayushmann Khurranna and Junglee Pictures."

Bareilly Ki Barfi, a romantic comedy film garnered a positive response from the audience and did well at the box office.

Rajkummar will next be seen in Amar Kaushik directorial film Stree, alongside actress Shraddha Kapoor. It is slated to release on 31 August.

On being asked what changes he finds in the industry, he says, "The Indian cinema is finally giving chance to art and talent and not the connections".  Tham was born in New York, USA to Chinese parents who moved to Delhi, India when he was young.

He did his schooling from Don Bosco New Delhi and then graduated from Stratford University in 2011. His parents own their own businesses in New Delhi, India. He started learning dance in 2008 and is a self-taught actor, dancer and choreographer.

Amyra Dastur buys her dream ride!

Amyra Dastur, who will be seen in the upcoming family drama, Rajma Chawal, directed by Leena Yadav, also starring Rishi Kapoor, has finally bought the car of her dreams.

The starlet, who is currently shooting for the Sanjay Dutt-starrer Prassthanam as well as the much awaited psychological thriller Mental Hai Kya with Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao, took over a month to choose and finally purchase the car she’s always wanted, a Mercedes GLC. The actress has had quite a year after having bagged some great films including Mental Hai Kya and Prassthanam.

Speaking about her purchase, Amyra said, “I was definitely eyeing an SUV because my family has a farmhouse in the hills in Khandala and my parents have always owned big cars like the Pajero and Qualis so an SUV is something for everyone to feel comfortable in.  I started modelling and working at the age of 16. I just turned 25 and finally decided to buy a car from my own earnings.

I always wanted this car and so did my dad. We could never afford one while growing up and I remember my father always had this one wish of owning and driving a Mercedes. My father was practically in tears telling me how truly proud he was of me. His reaction for me was better than the car.”

“I’m just glad I can finally give back to my family and make them happy. This is definitely a milestone for both me and my family and I’m so happy to have my dream car at such a young age, but I’m even happier because of the fact that my father is proud of me and that I helped him check something of his bucket list,” she added.

Parineeti’s sweet wish for sister Priyanka

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas made their relationship official yesterday via their Rokha ceremony and Priyanka’s sister Parineeti shared an adorable message for her. Take a look-

Today I witnessed magic and a fairytale ... When we were kids, mimi didi and I used to play “ghar ghar”. We would pretend to be shy brides, have imaginary children, and serve tea to our husbands! cheesy, but its because we always believed in the magic of love and hoped we would both find that perfect man for us one day!! Today there was no pretending. I cant think of a more a perfect man for her. Like I said this morning, there are two ways of judging a human being. One - travel with them, and two, eat with them. Nick, I have done both with you. And so I know you’re perfect for her!! Love her, because she loves you like mad! Protect her, because shes strong, but a soft soul inside. I love you both and wish you all the happiness forever!!!!! HAPPY ROKA AND FUTURE WEDDING!! @priyankachopra @nickjonas
