going to work in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film Top News She is one actress in Bollywood whose box-office scorecard has not depended on the the male lead of her films and her versatility has won her fans like megastar Amitabh Bachchan and superstar Aamir Khan Now she is likely to star with Shah Rukh Khan but she says the project is at a very premature stage Rumours have been rife that Shah Rukh and Kangana are going to work in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film Asked about it Kangana told IANS: “Sanjay sir just spoke to me about the film saying that he wants to make it with me and Shah Rukh sir But it’s at a very premature stage It’s not that I am working with Shah Rukh sir tomorrow or something like that… So yeah like I said it’s at a very premature stage” The actress was the showstopper for designer Tarun Tahiliani who flagged off the Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Winter/Festive 2016 on Tuesday night here The five-day fashion gala begins from Wednesday at St Regis in Mumbai The “Queen” of Bollywood feels fortunate to be a part of such grandeur “I think I am very fortunate because I get these opportunities I am an actress and my film characters are usually not very fashion-inspired As an artiste I don’t know where and how these opportunities just come my way where I get to work with the finest artistes in the country and get to display or wear their designs and even get to see their collections” said the National Award winner She says these chances help her to know more about fashion and understand it better “I am an artiste and I love to be inspired If I wasn’t walking the ramp I would never get exposed to these collections I am so busy that I can’t participate in the whole fashion scene that is going on in the country but because I work with designers and their shows I get to know so much about them and the fashion industry” she added On the big screen Kangana will be next seen in a biopic on Rani Lakshmibai a character she feels inspired by in many ways “I think ‘Jhansi Ki Rani’ is a very relevant film for many reasons and one of those reasons is the reminder of the amount of sacrifice and work that has been put out by people It’s also a reminder to value things much more than we actually do and to instill that passion and pride for our country which people even in testing times had” Rani Lakshmibai a fiery queen of Jhansi had taken up arms against the British in 1857 to free her state Kangana believes the present generation is “lost somewhere” and she feels the movie will serve the purpose of helping people value the freedom “I do identify with it

take place in real locations “Most of the film’s shooting will take place in live locations of old Hyderabad It’s impossible to go there and shoot as a film crew Hence we’ve decided to use guerrilla style to shoot It’s going to be tough but that’s the only way to do it” Chandra told IANS “One of the reasons I’m planning to cast mostly newcomers including the heroines is because I can easily shoot

“It’s inspired from true events that happened during this time period I have fictionalised these events for the screen It’s partly based on a crime biography I can’t reveal more at this moment” Chandra said “The story will revolve around Rohit and Vishnu We’re on the lookout for two heroines We’re also in talks with a popular Kannada actress to play the role of a sister We should be able to finalise the cast in a week’s time” he added Known for directing the underrated 2012 Telugu drama “Ayyare” Chandra says “Appatlo…” will be “very different” He adds that recreating the bygone years will be a major challenge “The entire topography of Hyderabad has changed Its people have also changed I need to keep all that in mind when we start shooting It will be tough to make a 100 percent foolproof film but we’ll try our best to do justice to the time period in the story” he said The movie will be officially launched in the first week of June followed by regular shooting For all the

been forced to wait too long to discover who their opponents were in the knockouts stages “The group stage was a little bit strange because UEFA did some stupid things with the system It’s not about the smaller teams it’s about the decisions Some teams waited three days in the camp for a decision” Podolski told reporters in France “You lose the first two games and you still have a chance to get
