Mumbai, Oct 3: Actress Rani Mukerji, who has attempted a belly dance number in her forthcoming film "Aiyyaa", was challenged for her skills by comedian Bharti Singh.
Bharti, who takes pride in her huge belly, had also posed such a challenge to Katrina Kaif on reality show "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5", and now she decided to do the same to Rani during the shoot of "Comedy Circus Ke Ajoobe".
Bharti challenged Rani to a belly dancing competition, and the actress gladly accepted the challenge. Both of them shook their belly to the song "Aga bai" from Rani's film, and it was a sight to behold, said a source from the set.
Rani has also performed a Lavani number in the movie, which releases Oct 12.
Sonakshi befriends Simba
Sonakshi Sinha found a furry friend in Simba, a lovable Rottweiler puppy, while shooting in Patiala for her forthcoming Diwali release "Son of Sardaar" (SOS).
The actress spent most of her free time playing and taking care of Simba.
"There was a place close to our shooting location where Rottweiler puppies were bred. Sonakshi is a dog lover. In fact she even had a pug earlier. When she saw this puppy in Patiala, she loved him so much that she immediately developed a special connection with him and she named the puppy Simba," said a source from the production team.
"Whenever she got some time off from her shoot, she would go and play with Simba and also with the other puppies. It was like her baby... she even wanted to adopt him," the source added.
SOS, directed by Ashwni Dhir, also features Ajay Devgn, Juhi Chawla and Sanjay Dutt.
It is presented by Viacom18 Motion Pictures in association with Eros International, and co-produced by Ajay Devgn Ffilms and YRV Infra & Media (P) Ltd Production.
'Candyman' scares RGV
Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma loves to scare the audiences with his horror films, but among the few things that horrify him is 1992 American film "Candyman".
The horror flick by Bernard Rose manages to spook Varma.
"I remember the first time I had seen the film in one part, I had switched it off in the first half hour. Then I went to the mirror and said Candyman four times. But couldn't get myself to say it the fifth time because I got scared that what if Candyman really comes," Varma said in a statement.
His latest horror film "Bhoot Returns", a sequel to his 2003 movie "Bhoot", is set to release Oct 12. He says he believes more in ghosts than in god.
"I believe in ghosts a little more than I believe in god because at least I have felt the fear of a ghost, but I have felt nothing when it comes to god," he added.
Varma has hardly ever used a caricaturish ghost in any of his films. He has always infused fear with an unsaid and unseen presence.
"Fear is in our mind. I like to put people in a theatre, switch off all the lights and lock all the door and scare them. I really love scaring people," he added.
