Salman Khan, Taapsee Pannu are following in the footsteps of these 4 actors – here’s how

Salman Khan and Taapsee Pannu will be seen playing older characters in their respective films, Bharat and Saand Ki Aankh

Published at


bharat saadh ki aankh

Bollywood actors and their commitment towards their work is on a different level these days. It’s nothing new in Hollywood for actors to prepare and go through drastic physical changes to become the character they would be playing in order to be more relatable for their audience. Be it weight gain, weight loss, getting six pack abs or even adding more years to their look, actors have never held back.

In recent years, we have seen the same kind of dedication from Bollywood artists as well. While many could say there is a lot more vanity in our industry than in the West, there are bold actors who don’t adhere by these norms and are taking the big step of transforming completely into their onscreen characters. Earlier this week, posters of Salman Khan starrer Bharat and Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar’s Saand Ki Aankh were released online. In their respective films, all the three actors will be seen playing much older characters and they have completely moulded themselves into their on-screen persona and look almost unrecognizable. Well, believe it or not, but in the past, quite a few actors did the same. Take a look…

Salman Khan in Bharat

Salman Khan’s Bharat is one of the most anticipated movies to release this year for all the obvious reasons. The poster of the movie is out and Salman looks almost unrecognizable. Sporting five different looks in the movie, the poster of Bharat shows Salman in a much older version, sporting a salt-n pepper look with heavy beard and moustache

Bhumi Pednekar & Taapsee Pannu in Saand Ki Aankh

In Saand Ki Aankh , Bhumi and Taapsee will be playing the role of the world’s oldest women sharpshooters. Bhumi will be seen as Chandro Tomar while Tapsee will be playing Prakashi Tomar. Staying true to their roles, both the actresses have visibly added years to their look with the help of make-up.

John Abraham in RAW

In the newly released spy thriller Romeo Akbar Walter, John is seen sporting 15 different avatars that too successfully with the help of prosthetics and specialist Preetisheel. Especially John’s look of a 70-year-old man is very convincing.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Sarbjit

In Omung Kumar’s directorial venture, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan played the role of Sarbjit’s sister. The films showcase the 22 years that Sarbjit spent in jail for alleged spying and terrorism. For the same, Aishwarya was happy to leave her vanity aside and played a much older character than her real-life age.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas in 7 Khoon Maaf

Priyanka Chopra has never shied away from taking up risky projects. So it’s not surprising that PeeCee did Vishal Bhardwaj’s Saat Khoon Maaf way back in 2011. In the film, her character ages from 20 to 65 and goes through several marriages at different points in her life. With the help of prosthetics, Priyanka played 7 completely different parts, one being that of a 65-year-old woman.

Rishi Kapoor in Kapoor & Sons

When Rishi Kapoor played 90-year-old grandfather in Kapoor & Sons, he got some help from Oscar-winning American make-up artist Greg Cannom of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Titanic fame. The producer of the film had to shell out Rs 2 crore for the actor’s unbelievable transformation and the look took 5 hours of hard labour every day.

Notre Dame: Befikre to Ilahi – Bollywood films and songs that were shot at the iconic monument in Paris

From Ilahi to Man Ko Ati Bhavey to Befikre, quite a few films and songs were shot at the Notre Dame in Paris

Published at


man ko ati bhavey

April 15 will be remembered in the coming years as the day that one of the most iconic monuments in the world witnessed doom. The 850-year old Notre Dame Cathedral in France erupted in a fiery blaze, leaving the world in shock. An interesting fact about Notre Dame that you may not know of is that the monument is one of Bollywood’s most preferred shooting locations.

The song Ilahi from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, which had Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in lead roles, was shot in front of the monument. The scene in which Ranbir gets chased by a drug dealer gives us quite a glance of the astounding cathedral.


Ranbir-Anushka-Aishwarya starrer Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016) also had scenes shot with the historical monument in the backdrop. In the song An Evening in Paris, you can see Ranbir and Anushka dancing on the street with the Notre Dame cathedral to the far left.

The song Man Ko Ati Bhavey from London Dreams started with the backdrop of the Louvre Museum, post which the scene shifts to the front of the Notre Dame. In one particular scene, we get a whole view of the cathedral while Salman Khan and Asin perform their antics.

Lok Sabha Elections 2019: Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Katrina Kaif cannot cast a vote, here’s why

While the election season has begun, we bring a list of popular actors who cannot cast their vote in India, check it out

Published at


Voting is a right that every citizen needs to practice. The 2019 Lok Sabha elections have already begun and the festival of democracy is on. As always, Bollywood celebs have come forward and shown active participation in the political showdown this year. Considering that B-town stars are the biggest influencers, many of them have been roped in to become the face of various organisations.
While some are supporting, few are contesting and many are condemning, there is a brigade of celebs in the industry who cannot vote. Yes, there are many in the list and we bring to you a few of them and trust us, some of the names will indeed surprise you.

Deepika Padukone:

deepika padukone

The highest paid actress in Bollywood right now, Deepika was born in Copenhagen, Denmark. And she holds a Danish passport. Thus the diva is not eligible to vote.

Akshay Kumar:


Yes, you read that right! Khiladi Kumar is not an India citizen. Confused? Well, Akshay holds a Canadian passport which makes him a Canadian citizen. While he claims to have dual citizenship, our constitution prohibits full dual citizenship, thus making him not eligible to vote.

Alia Bhatt:

The Kalank actress is originally a British. Her mother Soni Razdan is from Britain which explains the connect. And therefore Alia is not eligible to vote.

Katrina Kaif:


This one is pretty obvious. Though Katrina is loved and followed in India and has blended herself with the Indian audience pretty well, she still holds a UK passport.

Jacqueline Fernandez

Jackie was born in Bahrain, her father is a Sri Lankan and her mother is of Malaysian decent thus making her not eligible to vote in India.
There are a few others as well including Imran Khan, Sunny Leone and Nora Fatehi. Well, the first phase of elections kicked off on April 11 and will go on in seven different phases till May 19. The result for the same will be out on May 23.
