B-Town Buzz: Emraan Hashmi, Kangana Ranaut and Vidya Balan
Emraan plays 50 overs everyday
Emraan Hashmi seems to be sweating it out for his next film, a biopic on cricketer Mohd Azharuddin. The actor said, “We are constantly playing 50 overs in the net every day. I have been practicing since the past three months but I have to still polish his leg style. We have to get it right before the shooting starts.” Emraan has apparently training with Azharuddin himself. Speaking about the challenges he faces Emraan added, “There were a lot of challenges. His cricketing style was very unconventional and I am generally an average gully cricketer. And when he started teaching me I realised that I have a lot to learn in cricket. And hopefully I have gotten slightly better over the years.”
Kangana elated with Tanu’s success
After bagging two National Awards, Kangana Ranaut is riding high on success. The actress’ recent release, ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ has been getting an amazing response from the audiences. Kangana said, “We are getting tremendous response on social media and on our telephones and I have not seen this kind of response for any film. The best part is that everyone is liking it. We aren’t nervous.” According to trade reports, the film has made approximately Rs 35 crores in its opening weekend. ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ also stars R Madhavan and is directed by Aanand L Rai.
Vidya Balan: Domestic violence is being dealt by all women
Vidya Balan plays the character of a wife facing domestic violence from an abusive husband in her next movie ‘Humari Adhuri Kahani’. Speaking about the issue Vidya said, “When I read the script it was obviously out of my realm of reality. At the same time, you are aware that domestic violence is a thing that women are dealing with from all walks of life, but don’t speak about it.” Elaborating about her character, Vidya said, “She is a traditional woman who believes that she is her husband’s property. So she never questions how he treats her or controls her life. For the character it is just her reality until someone respects and values her.”
