The revival of Prem
Turning up at the screening of Sooraj Barjtya’s Uunchai, Salman Khan confirmed that he will join hands with the filmmaker for yet another offering. Barjatya, who featured Khan as Prem in several romantic films like Hum Aapke Hain Koun (1994), Hum Saath-Saath Hain (1999), and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (2015), was asked if the character will get a modern-day makeover. Alluding to his singledom, Khan made light of the conversation, stating that Barjatya will get the character married in this edition. Uunchai, which releases today, boasts of an enviable cast, including Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, Danny Denzongpa, Neena Gupta, and Sarika.

Only Khushi, no gham
If Janhvi Kapoor’s cinematic trajectory has been commendable, her charismatic interviews during film promotions have also been noteworthy. Now, giving a peek into her equation with sister Khushi, Janhvi shares that she is the “needy, irritating” sister who always requires attention. Janhvi says, “I love her. I am the crazy one in the equation. I am needy. I need her till I fall asleep. I ask her to sit in my room till I fall asleep, or fight with her when she isn’t spending time with me.” She also revealed that while the duo wouldn’t share their clothes in childhood, Khushi, who dislikes Janhvi’s sartorial choices, would often appeal to her to borrow some of her clothes. “But, [of late] she is okay with how I am dressing,” Janhvi says.
Masterclass from Singh

The actor will launch the brand with a skincare line made using traditional Indian ingredients. “Wherever I am in the world, practising simple acts of self-care consistently, helps me stay grounded and enables me to feel my most centred,” she shared.
Having been part of the Breathe franchise for six years, Amit Sadh states that his character of a tough cop has “never left his system”. “I think I’ve somewhat lived with Kabir, so I didn’t need to revisit the series before starting the shoot again. But, I did live with Kabir for a long time. He did not leave me, until I think this season ended,” he says of the latest edition of the show, also starring Abhishek Bachchan. Expressing gratitude for his director, Mayank Sharma, Sadh added, “I want to thank Mayank for giving me this character and allowing me to shine. A lot of times you don’t get the freedom as an actor in the films, but Mayank has given me so much freedom that the fear and hesitation is all gone. Because of that I think I was able to [play the part well.”
