Sushmita Sen voices her own dialogues in her Bangla debut film ‘Nirbak’

November 26, 2014 0

Sushmita Sen will be shortly debuting in Bangala Cinema with Srijit Mukherjee‘s ‘Nirbak’. However, the actress wasn’t well-versed with her mother-tongue as she never interacts with her family members in Bengali. But to maintain the originality of her performance in ‘Nirbhak’, she took up the challenge of learning the language.

It is said that she used to practice the language by thinking in Bengali. As a result, now she is able to communicate in her mother-tongue and will be voicing her own dialogues in her debut film.

Director Srijit believes that when an actor’s voice is dub by any other artist, it reduces the performance by 50 percent. So, he is happy that Sushmita will be voicing her words in his upcoming film.

Interestingly, the late filmmaker Rituparno Ghosh has dubbed in his feminine voice for Aishwarya Rai in ‘Chokher Bali’ and Bipasha Basu in ‘Sob Charitra Kalponik’.

November 25, 2014 0

The legendary Kathak dancer Sitara Devi breathed her last, today, on November 24 in Mumbai’s hospital.

Born in 1920 in Kolkata as Dhannolakshmi in a Brahmin Kathakar family, she chose her dancing passion over getting married at an early age. When she was 16 years-old, she performed a three hour solo-recital before Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore, who then gave her the title of Nritya Samrangi (meaning the empress of dance). She marked her debut in the Hindi film industry performing dance sequences in the film ‘Usha Haran‘, thereafter she continued illumining the screen with films ‘Nagina‘, ‘Vatan’ and ‘Anjali‘. Her most remembered performance was in ‘Mother India‘ where she performed a holi dance dressed as a boy.

Sitara Devi‘s son-in-law Rajesh Mishra said that her funeral will take place on Thursday morning as they are waiting for her son Ranjit Barot, who has gone abroad for a last show.

Revealed: Rekha’s Begum look from ‘Fitoor’

November 25, 2014 0

Just when Rekha held enough of epitome to look stunningly beautiful being “nani” (grandmother) in her last film ‘Super Nani‘, then imagine what grace she will pose in her next film ‘Fitoor‘, which stars her in the role of a spinster.

Here the exclusive first look of Rekha in Begum’s avatar, which is inspired by Miss Havisham from Charles Dicken’s novel Great Expectations. Taking a deep glance into her role, she plays a bitter spinster who was left at the altar and so she continually wears her wedding dress.

The picture reveals Rekha gracefully sitting under a tree in Kashmir’s Nishat Gardens, wearing an red and golden coloured Anarkali outfit designed by Manish Malhotra (which we guess to be her character’s wedding outfit).

Fitoor‘ also stars Aditya Roy Kapur and Katrina Kaif.
