Shahid Kapoor who is all set to deliver another applaud worthy performance , going by the grapevine , is all set to sweep awards for Rangoon.The few who have watched Vishal Bharadwaj's Rangoon, can't help but draw comparisons to Shahid Kapoor in the film and Leonardo Di Caprio in The Revenant, a role that finally went on to win him an Oscar.Ironically, Shahid's look from the period drama in certain scenes also bear an uncanny resemblance to Leonardo Di Caprio's look from the multi-Oscar nominated film.In both the pictures, Shahid and Leo are both seen bruised and covered in mud with the backdrop of the heavy forest.Says a source, "The few who have watched Rangoon claim this to be Shahid Kapoor's finest . While Vishal has kept most of Shahid's character in the film under wraps , he is a surprise package in the film and will completely floor audiences with his performance.

Image
फिल्म अभिनेत्री तापसी पन्नू इन दिनों सातवें आसमान पर हैं। हालिया रिलीज फिल्म ‘पिंक’ के लिए उन्हें मिली भारी सफलता और सराहना के बाद अब सुनने में आ रहा है कि इस साल वह अपनी झोली में पड़ी 6 फिल्मों की रिलीज के साथ बड़ा धमाका करने जा रही हैं। यह अभिनेत्री न सिर्फ फिल्मों के सही चुनाव को लेकर बेहद सतर्क है बल्कि सही कार्यक्रमों का चुनाव करते वक्त भी वह कोई ढील नहीं बरतती। सूत्रों के मुताबिक तापसी ने जयपुर में मार्च, 2017 के दौरान होने जा रहे एक कार्यक्रम का हिस्सा बनने से इंकार कर दिया है। ख़बर है कि इस कार्यक्रम में शिरकत करना उन्होंने इसलिए गवारा नहीं किया क्यों कि इसे एक फेयरनेस क्रीम ने आयोजित किया था। इस बारे में ख़ुद तापसी का कहना है- “मानती हूं कि यह आख़िरी क्षण का निर्णय था लेकिन जब मुझे पता चला कि कार्यक्रम के दौरान मुझे एक फेयरनेस ब्रांड के साथ कुछ पोज देने हैं तो मैंने फैसला कर लिया कि मैं इसका हिस्सा नहीं बनूंगी। दरअसल अपने गोरेपन की वजह से मुझे कई फिल्मों से हाथ धोना पड़ा है इसलिए मैंने तय किया है कि मैं गोरेपन को किसी भी सूरत में  बढ़ावा नहीं दूंगी।” तापसी इन फेयरनेस ब्रांडों के प्र…

Abrams. “There’s a very weird feeling about going back to something you know so well. It’s like saying, ‘I’m going to open this magic door and behind it is your bedroom at nine years old.’ You can walk into that bedroom and you can feel it, smell it and open the drawers in your desk and find the things you had. What would be in your desk? What would be under your bed? The feeling is that it’s yours and you know it. It must look like what you remember.”Abrams knew that the set would be scrutinized by every fan across the globe, and so it fell to art director Mark Harris and assistant art director Lydia …
