Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji's Hichki is having a golden run at the box office in China. The social drama with its rave reviews and positive word of mouth is performing exceptionally well at the ticket windows. The film has earned a grand total of Rs. 148.79 crore and is all set to enter the Rs. 150 crore club today.

Speaking about the success of Hichki, Rani had shared, "With the incredible love that audiences have showered on Hichki and on me, they have proven that for them good cinema and good performance is the only thing that matters - not marital status, not parenthood. They have made me incredibly emotional. Audiences have celebrated working mothers today and I will be forever thankful to them. I'm grateful to my director Siddharth P. Malhotra and my producer Maneesh Sharma for giving me a project that will forever be the most special film of my career."

Actor Parineeti Chopra has so far worked with the younger crop of actors, such as Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra, Sushant Singh Rajput, Ayushmann Khurrana and Aditya Roy Kapur. Therefore, being paired with actor Akshay Kumar, 51, in her upcoming film, Kesari, is a dream come true. Although she has shot with actor Ajay Devgn in Golmaal Again (2017), she was part of the ensemble cast and her onscreen relationship with Ajay was not a romantic one. So, this 30-year-old actor is evidently excited about shooting the period war drama with Akshay, being directed by Anurag Singh.

When asked how different it is to be on the set with him as compared to her earlier co-stars who were her age, she says, “Akshay sir is as excited as any other actor on the set. He is happy to be there and he make that extra effort to make everyone around him comfortable. I can expect it from the newer boys, but he is a veteran and doesn’t really need to go out of his way to make actresses or crew comfortable and happy, yet he does. So, within the first few days you realise he is a beautiful person.”

She has shot for a few days for the film, but most of the shoot is scheduled for later this year. “My biggest chunk of the shoot is going to be in December, that’s when I will know how it feels when I have to romance him,” she says.

The actor adds that, even in the past, whenever she has worked with senior actors, such as Ajay, Govinda in Kill Dill (2014), Anupam Kher in Dawat-e-Ishq (2014) and Manoj Joshi in Hasee Toh Phasee (2014), she has only had a great experience. “I’ve just been blessed that the kind of senior actors I’ve worked with are the kinds who really enjoy themselves on set, and they don’t take their stardom that seriously, whether it’s Ajay sir or Akshay sir or others,” says Parineeti, who was last seen in Namaste England with her Ishaqzaade co-star Arjun Kapoor.

Another actor she is pairing up with is her Hasee Toh Phasee (2014) co-star, Sidharth Malhotra for the upcoming Jabariya Jodi. So, one tends to ask her if equation or the onscreen camaraderie changes over time? “One hundred per cent, it does! And I feel it’s only natural for equations to change because by the time I do another film with an actor, they are a bigger star... I mean, you meet an actor today, and you meet them 10 films later, you will definitely see a change. As a co-star, we see it even more. Also, they might change as people, too, because of all the attention and love they get,” says Parineeti, who will work with Arjun for the third time in the upcoming, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar.

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has sung a few lines of a lullaby for the forthcoming film Thugs Of Hindostan. He says he was excited to sing it. Amitabh said the song tells the depth of the bond between his character Khudabaksh, mentor of Zafira, essayed by Fatima Sana Sheikh.

“The song tells you the depth of the bond that Zafira and Khudabaksh share. I was most excited to sing this lullaby because it is not everyday that you get to sing one,” Amitabh said in a statement. The lullaby has been composed by the talented duo Ajay-Atul and Amitabh Bhattacharya has penned it.

“The lyrics are beautiful and the composition highlights the emotional journey of these two characters who have an incredible father-daughter relationship. I have been telling Aditya to put this in the album. I’m sure he will do it because it’s turned out to be a beautiful song,” he added.

According to a source associated with the film, the film’s director Vijay Krishna Acharya wanted to show a beautiful father-daughter like relationship between the two that develops ever since Zafira was a child.

“He wanted to show the deep trust, the love and the respect that Zafira has for Khudabaksh and decided to add a moment of vulnerability between the two. Khudabaksh will be seen protecting Zafira at every step and they are inseparable souls.”

“Mr. Bachchan was so kicked about singing this lullaby that he decided to record it himself and that too at his home! The initial idea was to make a short lullaby but Mr. Bachchan went a step further and converted it into a song. He is insisting that Aditya puts it into the album,” the source added.
