‘Udta Punjab’ made Alia Bhatt fly off social media

April01/ 2015

Mumbai, April 1: The young and versatile Alia Bhatt was missing from the virtual platform for quite sometime. The chirpy actress says she had to go off the radar to focus on her work, but she is now back with the first schedule of her film “Udta Punjab” ending.

“And the first sched for #UdtaPunjab ends for me! Apologies for going MIA…But had to had to focus;) and now I’m backkkkk ;) sweet home,” Alia tweeted on Wednesday.

Abhishek Chaubey’s film that addresses prevalent drug menace in Punjab also stars Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan among others.

Meanwhile, Alia has been finalised for Shakun Batra’s upcoming modern family drama film “KAPOOR and SONS”, which also stars Sidharth Malhotra, Pakistani actor Fawad Khan and veteran actor Rishi Kapoor.

Comedian Kapil Sharma has carved a space of a multi-talented star with his acting and singing capabilities. He is now working on a new song for his debut movie and he wishes the song strikes a chord with his fans.

“Recording my first song for Bollywood with the one n only @drzeusworld hope u all will like it…Bum bum bum,” Kapil tweeted.

Host of the hit show “Comedy Nights With Kapil”, Kapil will debut with director duo Abbas-Mustan’s yet untitled film. The film also stars Elli Avram.

Known for foot tapping music and beats, Baljit Singh Padam, better known by his stage name Dr. Zeus, is credited for songs like “Kangna” and “Jugni ji”.

Filmmaker Bobby Khan, who has roped in adult film star-turned-Bollywood actress Sunny Leone in his film “Ek Paheli Leela”, says she will get into mainstream cinema with this film.

“Sunny will get into mainstream with this film. This will change her. There are many looks of Sunny in this film, but performance-wise she has done a great job. Her brain is very sharp as she grabs things quickly,” Khan told IANS.

The film also stars Jay Bhanushali, Rajneesh Duggal, Rahul Dev, Mohit Ahlawat among others.

With many actors refusing to work with Sunny in this film, the producers were once also toying with the idea of replacing Sunny. But Khan says he was adamant about casting Sunny.

“Many actors refused to work in this film, so there was a pressure. People started saying ‘Let’s remove Sunny and have a leading actress’. But I said I will not make Leela without Sunny. I feel so proud that we made Leela with Sunny.”

Largely shot in Jodhpur, the film is slated to hit theatres April 10.
