Mumbai, Aug 13 (IANS) Actor Rajeev Khandelwal’s forthcoming film “Soundtrack” is about a guy who comes to the city to make it big and the actor says the story is very similar to his own life.
“The part of the film where this character comes to Mumbai to make it big, I could see myself in it. I came from Jaipur to Mumbai and I remember landing at the station and when I saw Mumbai I was scared. And then I adjusted. So all those things I related to. I could feel those portions of the film from my heart,” the 35-year-old actor told IANS.
“Soundtrack”, the official remake of “It’s All Gone Pete Tong”, is slated to release Sep 30. It has been directed by debutant Neerav Ghosh and also stars Soha Ali Khan, Mrinalini Sharma, Mohan Kapur and Anurag Kashyap in a cameo.
“Soundtrack” is the story about a prolific musician and DJ. It traces his alcohol-drug-and-sex-fuelled meteoric rise, as he battles his internal demons and a damaging handicap.
Sanjay Dutt addicted to tattoos
He was one of the first few stars to acquire a sculpted body and actor Sanjay Dutt was also among the first to get a tattoo. He has eight of them now.
“Tattoos are like an addiction. I got my first tattoo on my right shoulder in Goa. Since then I went on having more of them. Now I have eight tattoos and I like them a lot. I might get more later. Let’s see,” the 51-year-old actor told IANS.
Sanjay’s tattoos include his parents’ names – Nargis and Sunil Dutt. He has a four-inch Tibetan Om with his zodiac sign, Leo, and his lucky number 1 below it.
Other tattoos include, his wife Manaayata’s original name (Dilnashin) on his left forearm; a lion tattoo on his right forearm with the words “Simba Rules”; two samurai soldiers one below the other on his right arm; an elaborate Lord Shiva inking on his left shoulder/upper arm with the “Om Namah Shivaya” in Sanskrit; and a dragon breathing fire on his right shoulder and extending to his upper arm.
I’m a blend of both Indian and Western: Asin
Southern beauty Asin Thottumkal calls herself the contemporary modern woman and says that her name signifies that too.
“A is taken from Sanskrit, which is the first letter of the alphabets and Sin is English for Hindi word ‘paap’. So Asin means pure, something without sin. It’s a combination of the East and the West.
“It stands for contemporary India because now we are neither fully traditional nor completely westernised. We are a blend of both. So my name is me, a contemporary modern woman,” said the 25-year-old.
Asin, who was last seen in “Ready” with Salman Khan, has paired with Akshay Kumar in “Housefull 2″.
