Shoojit Sircar clears the air about working with Shah Rukh Khan in his next
Of late, superstar Shah Rukh Khan has been experimenting with the kind of film he does and even with the new directors. After working with Maneesh Sharma, Rahul Dholakia, Imtiaz Ali and currently shooting a film with Aanand L Rai, it was being speculated that he is all set to team up with filmmaker Shoojit Sircar. Reports suggested that this project for which they both will be teaming up for will be based on the Indian Army and will be along the lines of the superstar’s cult TV series, ‘Fauji’ (1988). But, today putting an end to all these rumours, the ‘Piku’ director has denied all the reports about him planning to collaborate with superstar Shah Rukh Khan.
While talking about it to an agency from Melbourne, Shoojit Sircar has confirmed saying, “No. This is wrong news. I am not aware of it at all. I have no clue. I’m just getting into a film with Varun. That’s already been announced.” [sic] (Also Read:Shah Rukh Khan reveals he never discusses work with Salman Khan and Aamir Khan)
Many would be aware that it was just a few weeks ago that filmmaker had announced his next with actor Varun Dhawan titled as ‘October’. The movie is supposedly a rom-com.
Currently, the filmmaker is in Melbourne. He had went there to attend the prestigious Indian Film Festival of Melbourne 2017 where his production venture ‘PINK’ won the Best Film award.
Talking about winning this honour, he said, “It’s a joy and a proud moment for the team, especially because we have got an acknowledgment from the Australian jury. The film has resonated with them as well. That gives a high. It shows that we are on the right path.” [sic]
Ranbir Kapoor: I suffer from anxiety issues after finishing a film
Mental illness is still not considered as a sickness and people shy away from discussion about it. No, when you suffer from some mental disease you are crazy or mad, it is as normal as a physical sickness. Our society is easily influenced by famous personalities and sometimes people also follow them blindly. So when Bollywood actors come in the open and talk about suffering from depression or any other mental illness, people become aware about it and somewhere start considering it as a serious problem.
Recently, Ranbir Kapoor, who is gearing up for the release of ‘Sanju’ has confessed that he is suffering from anxiety issues. Ranbir has been busy with the promotion of his upcoming film which is a biopic on Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt. He has been giving multiple interviews and has shared some fantastic stories about his life, personal and professional.

In one such interview with film critic Anupama Chopra before the release of ‘Sanju’, Ranbir shared about what he goes through before and after the release of the film. He said, “I suffer from anxiety issues after finishing a film and before the film hits theatres. It has happened with every one of my films.”
This is an important point to note for all those people who thought that the film industry is all about glam and fame. The harsh reality is, there is stress and pressure even here and the biggest of stars suffer from mental illness. In the past, Deepika Padukone, Ileana D’Cruz have also openly spoken about battling depression, and we are glad they did.
Ranbir’s upcoming film, ‘Sanju’ also stars Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Jim Sarbh, Karishma Tanna, Boman Irani and others. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani the film will release on June 29.

On the professional front, Dhanush is gearing up for two Tamil films. One is gangster drama ‘Vada Chennai’ and the other is ‘Maari 2’ which is scheduled to release by the year-end.
Dhanush had made his Bollywood debut with Aanand L Rai’s ‘Raanjhanaa’ opposite Sonam Kapoor and was last seen in R Balki’s satirical drama ‘Shamitabh‘ alongside Amitabh Bachchan. We wonder when the actor will be seen in a Hindi film again.
