Neena Gupta asks for work on social media, leaves Priyanka Chopra inspired


National award winning actress Neena Gupta has been inspiring a lot of people lately with her bold Instagram post. You will be amazed to know that the 58-year-old star on Friday sought work on social media.

“I live in mubai and working am a good actor looking fr good parts to play,” she posted online. Well, this is now being said to be quite a brave step from Neena. Her Insta upload is garnering interesting reactions from social media users.

Priyanka Chopra also lauded her for the same. ”Inspired,” PeeCee commented on Neena’s Insta pic. Daughter Masaba also talked about her mother’s daring move by posting a heartfelt message online. Here’s what it read:

Just the other day I was telling someone .. how I am never afraid/ shy to ask for work. Its obviously genetic. My mother put up this post on her instagram today. I mean,my 62yr old national award winning mother. She told me I must always work .. no matter what .. it keeps you from getting old…she told me they don’t write for women her age anymore … I don’t think anyone can replicate what she did for TV anymore.. she complains that she can’t do PR .. but says ‘I do good work,that’s my PR’.. time and again we’ve spoken about how whatever she asks for … in due time ,she gets… But that’s the magic of a pure heart. The universe just can’t refuse you… the only advice I have the guts to give her is.. don’t work with anyone who won’t respect you ,at this age , that’s the bare minimum & it’s a strange strange industry she’s in… the advice she gives me in return is..’whatever you do,free ka PR mat khaana,your only someone’s kid/wife/niece/sister for this long. Prove yourself. WORK. Walk the talk & fly @neena_gupta #neenaji 

So, what do you have to say about Nina’s unconventional method to find work?

Baywatch Movie Review: Priyanka Chopra Deserves Better Than This

Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Priyanka Chopra, Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach
Director: Seth Gordon
Rating: 1 Star (out of 5)

First and foremost, I believe we must applaud the generosity and graciousness shown to the entire Baywatch team by the chief of India’s censor board, Shri Pahlaj Nihalani. At a time when actresses and writers squabble over additional credits in the movies, Nihalani has gone above and beyond any conceivable call of duty and actually re-edited this entire film, dropping, among other things, every word for breasts in a film about breasts. In the process, he has turned a monstrosity into a monstrosity with avant-garde jumpcuts, a veritable A Booty De Souffle. Yet – I double-checked – Baywatch doesn’t give Nihalani credit either for Editing or Screenwriting or Co-Directing, showing us how thanklessly the man scissors on. Bravo.

Baywatch was never a good television show, but it was definitively sultry. The iconic opening credits featured pneumatic castmembers, culled from many a centrefold, running across sand and diving through water in excruciatingly slow motion. The show was about a team of lifeguards unwisely (and titillatingly) playing detective with all manner of random seaside intrigue. David Hasselhoff, who we already hated from Knight Rider because he got the talking car every boy wanted, was in it, surrounded by statuesque women with fun-to-pronounce names, like Erika Eleniak. It also starred Pamela Anderson, Playboy’s most repeated covergirl of all time (and a woman I once met and will never stop bragging about).

The world has changed. These days, Ms Anderson writes poems about Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. These may not win her literary applause, but they are a darned sight better – and more clearly intentioned – than the Baywatch film, a disjointed and unnecessary affair without a single memorable joke, or even a memorably filthy one. There is exactly one relatively funny running gag in this film, wherein The Rock refers to Zac Efron by a bunch of boyband names instead of the name of Efron’s character, and this is stolen from the sitcom Scrubs.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson plays Lieutenant Mitch Buchannon, king of the lifeguards. Oddly enough, the film reveals that his mentor was a lifeguard also known as Lieutenant Mitch Buchannon (Hasselhoff), which suggests a fascinating, Phantom-esque successor trail. Picture a beach where an ageing Mitch, before putting on a flowery shirt and tanning himself orange, first finds a fit successor with suitably oversized pecs, then christens him Mitch Buchannon. This carries on, ad infinitum, and thus are beaches forever safe. The Ghost Who Swims. Now that’d be a film.

Instead, director Seth Gordon gives us an uninspired retread of the old show with Johnson as Mitch, Alessandra Daddario as Summer, Ilfenesh Hadera as Stephanie and Kelly Rohrbach as CJ Parker – and no, the new CJ does not do justice to Anderson’s slow-motion legacy. Efron, as new kid on the block Matt Brody, plays a queasy Olympian struggling under Mitch’s shadow. The villain of the piece is Priyanka Chopra, vamping it up and having fun swearing like a sailor. Playing an attractive drug-dealer, she cannily uses this film to deliver a barely-disguised showreel to studios in need of a baddie. “I’m not a Bond villain,” she even says, perhaps prophetically, in as many words, “Yet.”

I desperately wanted Baywatch to be a laugh. Alas, even Johnson, to my mind one of the most charismatic action heroes of all time, can’t keep this shipwreck afloat. Efron, usually enjoyable, is dragged down by a painfully puerile script. To be fair, he does have a couple of vaguely amusing lines in the trailers, but, thanks to Mr Nihalani, they are nowhere to be heard in theatres. Similarly, Chopra doesn’t get to say her attitude-soaked “Easy, Britney” line – a quip I rather enjoyed in the trailer, aimed at a cross-dressing Efron – in our theatres. The scene, like many, has vanished. If you are have made up your mind about watching this film, don’t do it on the big screen in India. In fact, considering how insipid the cinematography is, you might as well watch this at home.

I suggest you avoid this moist mess. The reason the Baywatch series became such a sensation – only outside of the United States, mind you – was that for many countries, this was one of the hottest things we could watch while pretending there was a plot in there somewhere. This was a time before the internet, or at least before the World Wide Web allowed us to download images fast enough. “I’ll be there,” as Hasselhoff sang during those unforgettable opening credits, was a promise that Baywatch would bring us sun and skimpiness and spunk. Now it feels like a threat.

Priyanka Chopra, who has been going all out to promote Baywatch was recently on the show Dirty Laundry, where PC spoke about the one item of clothing that has stayed with her through the years. She took out a brown leather jacket and said that it was her absolute favourite and she wears it to the airport all the time because its really comfortable.

What she then said was that it belonged to her ex boyfriend and when the host asked her how it’s still with her, she added,

“Things get exchanged. But this one I really really loved because it kind of became mine. It stopped being him like after it stayed back in my house once and I just kind of wore it.”

Soon after the episode aired, people started comparing that jacket with the brown leather jacket that Shah Rukh Khan has been pictured in multiple times, with rumours doing the rounds that the jacket actually belongs to SRK.

What are your thoughts? If you haven’t seen the episode, you can watch it below.

Priyanka Chopra on Deepika Padukone’s identity crisis in the west: I guess I’m the most popular brown face that everyone has known


We caught up with Priyanka Chopra in Mumbai recently, before she went to the Met Gala and got everyone talking with her bold fashion outing. The actress has a found a new home in the US and was in Mumbai just for a few days. Priyanka was to promote her upcoming film with Dwayne Johnson, Baywatch. Priyanka talked about success, Hollywood and even The Rock, but it was her remark about Deepika Padukone’s identity crisis in the west that bowled us over. Ever so humble Priyanka admitted that she had watched videos of paparazzi confusing Deepika for her. In her inimitable style she quipped, “That’s not fair and it’s not right.”

When we quizzed the actress about Deepika being mistaken for her by the western media, she said, “I did see that and you know that’s just ignorance and it’s not right. I guess I’m the most popular brown face that everyone has known. Every brown girl does not look the same. Don’t mistake it. Let’s try and tell us apart. That was not right and it’s not fair she’s a massive star from India.”

Having said that, the Quantico babe also added, “But it’s also, like I understand I guess. When I went to America for the first time, at least Deepika‘s had a film (xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage). When I went to America for the first time I would walk into the room and introduce myself. I don’t expect people to know me either, because it’s a different country. Just because I’m a popular star in India doesn’t mean the whole world has to knows me. Just because I’m a Bollywood actor doesn’t mean people who do not watch Hindi movies have to know me. I’m not entitled like that. I guess that is another aspect of this.”

Things obviously are different today, not only does the west love Priyanka and her fashion outings, they are in awe of our desi girl. The actress has managed to make a mark in Hollywood that no other Bollywood actor/actress has managed to do in the past. When we further reminded the actress that she needs no introduction anymore she agreed and said, “I mean that was like before Quantico.”

Confirmed! Priyanka Chopra to play Kalpana Chawla in the astronaut’s biopic

Finally, we’ll see desi girl onscreen again! Like we’ve already seen Priyanka Chopra slay the red carpet in her international rendezvous, Baywatch trailers, Quantico and stuff like that. However, after Jai Gangaajal, the actress has finally signed her next Bollywood project and yes, it’s every bit exciting! For quite a long time now, reports of her considering quite a lot of films were going on. However, the longest rumour (which has now become truth) is her bagging Kalpana Chawla’s biopic. The diva has just returned from USA in this weekend and looks like she has arrived with a mission. A mission to sign a Bollywood film and finally sizzle onscreen in the Indian terrain. The project will be helmed by debutant Priya Mishra, who has been in talks with the diva’s team for quite a while now. She told Mid-Day, “I have been working on it for the past seven years. A new production banner will back the project.”

Turns out, the filmmaker has been in touch with Chawla’s parents and discussed this project as well. She further added, “I was last heading a TV channel creatively and post 2011, quit to pursue filmmaking. This is one of the two scripts that I have written.” On the same, a source has added that the venture will be promoted on an international scale. “The film will be mounted on an international scale. A new production company, Getway, is likely to produce the biopic,” said the source.

It is a great project considering it talks about the life of India’s first woman astronaut who went into outer space. Hailing from Karnal, Haryana, Kalpana made the nation proud with her achievements as an astronaut. She came to a tragic end in 2003, February, during her second expedition with six crew members, when the space shuttle exploded. None of the passengers survived. Chawla had spend 31 days, 14 hours and 54 minutes in space before the catastrophe occurred. To this date, her name is famous for being the first Indian woman to have travelled in space. It is a matter of pride, after all. This will be Priyanka’s second biopic, after Mary Kom.

It would be interesting to see her portray the role of the astronaut, whom, a lot of children look upto. Are you excited to see PeeCee as Kalpana Chawla? Tell us in the comments section below.

Priyanka Chopra Opens Up On The Issues She Faced Because Of Her Skin Colour

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra

Skin colour is unfortunately given more importance than it deserves in India and we’ve had our fair share of controversies with fairness creams. Women of colour are often under-represented and misrepresented in film and TV. Priyanka Chopra, who is known for her dusky complexion, recently made it to the list of 41 women featured on Allure magazine’s Diversity Issue. Yup, another achievement in her kitty!

This special issue features 41 women of colour who celebrate diversity and share their stories – struggles and triumphs. PC spoke at length on the issues she faced because of her darker complexion.

My skin is as complicated as I am. When I was growing up, I didn’t see anyone on television who looked like me. Initially companies didn’t have colors that matched Asian or Indian skin. Because I’m darker, I had issues as a teenager—society pressure that a girl is prettier if she’s lighter. Pressure exist, and it’s on us to make those pressures not seem important to girls. I’ve achieved what I’ve achieved, and skin color has nothing to do with it—in fact it might have been an asset. I like the color of my skin very much. It’s so primitive to me that people are judged on the basis of the color of their skin. I mean, it’s skin. We all have it.”

It’s about time we let go of this obsession with skin colour. More power to you, PC!


Priyanka Chopra making ‘Pahuna’ to assimilate knowledge about the North-East

Actress Priyanka Chopra’s mother Madhu says the decision to make Sikkimese film ‘Pahuna’ comes with a motive to ‘assimilate knowledge about the state’, not essentially to uplift the North-East region.

‘Pahuna’ is being made under the Chopras’ home banner Purple Pebble Pictures.

Asked if producing the film helps in bringing limelight towards the North-East region, Madhu said, “Priyanka is the brand ambassador of Assam Tourism, that is one step. Second, we are making a Sikkimese film. It’s not essentially to uplift the North-East, but to assimilate the knowledge about the them.”

‘Pahuna’ is a brave story about the love, strength and courage of three Nepali children who get separated from their parents, while fleeing the Maoist agitation from Nepal to Sikkim. The entire cast and many of the technicians are from Sikkim.

“We don’t know their lifestyle…We don’t know that they are such gentle, kind and nice people. Through the film we will showcase their Sikkim, their state,” she added.

Madhu also feels Sikkim doesn’t ‘have a film industry per se’. “But they have talent and scope. We have taken talent from Sikkim,” she said.

The film be made in Sikkimese language. “But we will dub it in Hindi and release it all over the country hopefully. There is a first time for everything…We are very excited. The government is very excited,” she added.

Madhu believes that there is viewership for regional cinema. “‘Sairat’ did such a good job…Punjabi films are doing so well. People are curious to know about different regions,” She said.

Beginning this year, PPP had announced its foray into children’s cinema by launching three films in Sikkimese, Konkani and Hindi.
