Opening up on the topic to Bollywood Hungama, Iulia Vantur said, “Oh God! This question goes on and on and on. I think it is more about how people feel about each other. Spending time together is more important than any other stuff. At one point, I was asked the same question on and on and on. Even my parents were asking me, ‘When you are going to get married?’ I said, ‘Mom, do you want me to be happy or just get married?’ Because to get married just like that… I can get married to someone tomorrow, you know. That was the last time she ever asked me about this. I think it is more important to be happy with someone, spend quality time and have a connection… Spending your life with someone, more than papers and all those things.” Also Read – Trending Entertainment News Today – Rakul Preet Singh opens up on ‘buying alcohol’; Rishi Kapoor’s old tweet goes viral

RIP Irrfan Khan: Paan Singh Tomar actor Imraan Hasnee recalls taking special permission to be present at the late actor’s last rites

Actor Imraan Hasnee knew the late Irrfan Khan for several years, and very closely. In fact, Imraan was one of the few people who obtained special permission to be present at the late actors cremation, despite the lockdown.

“As the lockdown is on, I had to take special permission to go there. I was so numb at that point of time but I had to go rushing to see my friend who stood by me for 20 years. There was a time limit and only a select number of people could gather, so we were hurrying up everything. We were just following the rules,” Imraan recalled about the cremation. Also Read – Did you know Irrfan Khan would have been a part of Ship of Theseus director Anand Gandhi’s next big-budget flick?

The two worked together in Bollywood films like “Paan Singh Tomar” and international projects as “A Mighty Heart” and “Slumdog Millionaire” among others. Imraan terms Khan’s acting as a spiritual expression. In “Paan Singh Tomar”, Irrfan played the title character while Imraan played his elder brother Matadeen Tomar. Also Read – AR Rahman mourns the demise of Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan Khan, calls it ‘most unfortunate time’

“We shot that film under very tough weather condition in Chambal and Roorkee, and in the evening we usually would get tired. When we had the time we would go to a nearby club and play billiards. There is a village in Roorkee where villagers prepare fresh gur (molasses) and we used to go to have freshly made hot gur. That used to be delicious! He went through so much training to get the right body and body language, but you never heard him extensively talking about how he built his body that you otherwise get to see among others,” Imraan told IANS.

Despite winning several honours including the National Award and Padma Shri, Imraan recalls Irrfan was never “loud” in celebration or showing off.

“He was not one of those people who would indulge in celebration for an award, like ‘tamasha’. He would find happiness in small things, like flying kites or playing cricket. He used to feel happy to be surrounded by his family and close friends,” said Imraan.

Asked how he would like to remember Irrfan, Imraan said: “(I would like to remember Irrfan) Through his performances. His performance was an extension of spiritual expression. That is why there was a connection between the art and the artist. That is why he touched so many lives through his on-screen presence.”

When Rishi Kapoor asked Ranbir Kapoor to marry THIS person — view tweet

Rishi Kapoor’s demise has been one of the most shocking incidents of the recent past. The legendary actor was known for his straight forward nature, witty sense of humour, charming personality and much much more. He never spared anyone when it came to his witty sense of humour. Not even his son, Ranbir. Yes, you read that right. We all know, how close Ranbir is with his friend, Ayan Mukerji. They are thick as thieves and have been best of friends for years. A throwback tweet by Rishi Kapoor is going viral these days. We all know how best friends are often linked together irrespective of gender and feelings. That’s what happened with Ranbir and Ayan. They both spent so much time together than their friends and family were fed up in a way. And in a tweet, Rishi Kapoor even asked Ranbir to marry him (joking of course).

But, it sounds more like a tease to them both. Anyway, have a look here: Also Read – RIP Rishi Kapoor: Kareena Kapoor Khan shares a throwback picture of RD Burman, Rishi Kapoor and her parents

RIP Rishi Kapoor: Jackie Shroff regrets not getting to share screen with Rishi Kapoor, says, ‘We’ve lost a precious jewel of the crown’

Bollywood is heartbroken. In a span of two days, we lost Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor. There are many who are regretting not getting the opportunity to work with or having met one of the two. Jackie Shroff who shared a warm rapport with Rishi Kapoor has lamented how despite working in three films together, they never got scenes where they had to face each other. In an interview to Hindustan Times, Shroff shared, “Chintuji always used to tell me, ‘Jaggu dada, I want to do a film opposite you. We’ve worked together in so many movies but never faced each other on camera.’ Him being a senior to me and one of the finest actors of the industry, I so wanted to act with him. I feel sad that this wish never will come true now. We’ve lost a precious jewel of the crown.” Rishi Kapoor was diagnosed with cancer two years back. He travelled to the US for treatment. They have worked together in films like Azaad Desh Ke Gulam (1990), Aurangzeb (2013) and Chalk n Duster (2016).

Rishi Kapoor was a matinee idol for many kids growing up in the 70’s. Jackie Shroff was also a huge fan of the star. He said, “I remember his film Bobby (1973) had released and he shot to fame overnight. I was hanging around the Pastry Palace in Mumbai and I saw him there for the first time. I was like, ‘Wao, Rishi Kapoor!’ I wasn’t an actor then and seeing a superstar was like a fan moment to me and I never knew that one day, we would share such great camaraderie.” After his death, Tiger Shroff took to Twitter and wrote, “Absolutely shattered upon hearing the news of Chintu uncle passing away. The only consoling thought is that he isn’t suffering wherever he is… rest in peace sir.” Also Read – Riddhima Kapoor Sahni shares a picture of Rishi Kapoor dancing with his mom, Krishna Raj Kapoor

Jackie Shroff further told the newspaper, “I couldn’t do what he could. Neither I could dance like him nor romance. He would meet people with a big warm hug and was so jovial and always sharing good vibes. I could always feel that affection from a senior not just for myself but for Tiger (son, Tiger Shroff) as well. We would ring up and discuss Tiger’s performance in his recent movies. Coming from him really meant a lot to me.” Also Read – RIP Rishi Kapoor: Imtiaz Ali remembers the superstar as he shares a THROWBACK video of him dancing at his brother’s wedding in Kashmir

And when the baraat was entering the venue he said -“you guys go in front, I will come in the end”. I understood later that he did not want the attention to shift from the groom to himself. And today he left. Something precious became past today. But this time will not take him away. I haven’t met him for so long anyway, I will think he is still there, smiling. And I can still think of the little time I could spend with him, and smile with him.” Also Read – Kareena Kapoor visits Neetu, Ranbir and Riddhima’s residence amidst lockdown — view pic

Yesterday after his passing, the official spokesperson of the family released an official statement urging people to stay at home and abide by the government directives to stay at home owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. “In this hour of personal loss, we also recognise the world is going through a very difficult and troubled time. There are numerous restrictions around movement and gathering in public. We would like to request all his fans and well-wishers and friends of the family to please respect the laws that are in force. He would not have it any other way,” a part of the statement read.

We must say, that’s a good way to fulfill his wish and be responsible.
