Saturday, November 14, 2009

MUMBAI - After making several hard-hitting films including his latest “Jail”, Madhur Bhandarkar says he wouldn’t mind trying his hand at a comedy or a romantic tale.

“I want to make other films like a comedy, musical or a romantic movie, but it’ll again be in my parameters and will be my kind of cinema. I definitely want to try other genres but a Madhur Bhandarkar stamp will always be there on it,” he told IANS.

“Jail”, which stars Neil Nitin Mukesh and Mugdha Godse, is a film on the gritty realities of a prison and the inmates. The other critically acclaimed movies Bhandarkar has made include “Chandni Bar”, “Page 3″, “Corporate” and “Fashion”.

“All my films will be semi-real no matter what the story,” the director said.


I don’t know how to cook: Karisma Kapoor

Karisma Kapoor, a self-confessed foodie who is expecting her second child, confesses that she doesn’t know how to cook.

“I don’t know how to cook. I just know how to eat everything, as I love food. I can only make tea, coffee and omelettes,” Karisma told IANS.

The actress has a four-year-old daughter with businessman husband Sanjay Kapur and says she loves good food but she is one of those actresses who has always flaunted a svelte figure.

Asked if she was into dieting, the 35-year-old said: “I am not into exhaustive drastic dieting or anything.”

The actress, who took a sabbatical from the big screen after her wedding in 2003, hopes to have a second innings in the film world in future.

“I am hoping to get back to work and reach out to audiences,” she said.


Singer Anushka debuts as actress in ‘Dulha Mil Gaya’

Pop star-turned-VJ Anushka Manchanda is all set to make her acting debut now with comedy “Dulha Mil Gaya”, which stars superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Sushmita Sen and Fardeen Khan.

The 24-year-old has sung three songs in the film and is more excited about her music career than acting.

“It’s not much…maybe a scene or two…but the amount of fun I had doing it was superb. I have three songs in the film and I am more excited about that than anything else as I had a blast doing them and had a great time singing,” Anushka told IANS.

“Acting etc is fun and if something like that happens, I’ll do it but I am very clear that my main focus right now is my music. I have age on my side; so if I can do other things I’d like to,” said Anushka, who has sung in films like “Golmaal” and “Chandni Chowk To China”.

The multi-starrer is slated for a Dec 11 release.
