MUMBAI EXPRESS


A child at heart

Ashish Chaudhary got the jitters when he had to dress in drag for Double Dhamaal. But there was something on the first Dhamaal sets that made him as nervous as wearing female garb.

Says the actor: “I still remember the first day of shooting for Dhamaal — I was very nervous when I went on the sets because I was going to meet Sanjay Dutt. I had floppy hair in college and people would call me Sanjay Dutt. Finally, Arshad and Ritesh who had worked with him earlier took me to meet him. When I met Sanjay, I realised why people still call him Baba; he is a child at heart even now.”

Numbers don't matter

Ask Kiran Rao if she feels hubby Aamir is Bollywood's Number One hero, and she smiles, “I don't have an opinion on it. It's not important. The audience loves all actors in different ways. You look at different actors for different things — you go to films to be entertained, to learn something, to have a laugh. I don't think Numbers One, Two and Three matter to audiences, so it doesn't matter to me.”


Back into the spotlight

After his film career fizzled out, Ashmit Patel's stint on ‘Bigg Boss' brought him back into the spotlight and the exposure seems to be finally paying dividends. He says, “I'm working on a new reality show on Bindaas called ‘Super Stud' which will go on air on July 8.” Meanwhile, his film career is also under way. Says Ashmit, “ The Flag, which also features Milind Soman, will probably release on August 15. I'm also doing a Bengali film with Priyanshu Chatterjee, Jackie Shroff and some big Bengali actors. Directed by Ujjwal Chatterjee, it's almost complete. Besides, I'm acting in an independent Hollywood film titled Florida Road. Directed by Brad Glass, it's about an Indian family based in South Africa.”

Eager to reveal that his hands are full, Ashmit says, “I am doing another international film but I cannot disclose the details now. And I'm working on a TV fiction series of my own which I intend to produce.”
