After impressing one and all in Bollywood with her acting chops, B-town belle – Kiara Advani is now wooing the audiences down south. The gorgeous actress, who walked away with several accolades for her performance in her debut mega blockbuster -Bharat Ane Nenu, recently faced a colossal predicament in Hyderabad, where she is shooting for her second big Telugu project.It so happened - Kiara, who has become the toast of Telugu cinema, was invited by Filmfare Awards South to attend the award function. But as Kiara was shooting for a rigorous climax sequence for her film, despite being excited to attend the awards show, she decided to skip it.However, on the day of the event, the actress got a break from her busy shooting schedule and decided to attend the award function. But now the pretty lass was in a fix because she had initially made up her mind not to attend the function, which is why she had not sorted out an ensemble for the glamorous event.Kiara quickly made an SOS call to one of India’s ace designers – Manish Malhotra who promptly came to her rescue by sending not one but 10 stunning gowns along with a team to help her put her best foot forward and dazzle on the Filmfare’s red carpet.Needless to say, Kiara looked breathtakingly beautiful in a stunning Manish Malhotra creation as she strutted down the Filmfare Awards South’s red carpet later that day.

Netflixhas become the good content haven for all the entertainment fanatics. Especially today when content is consumed on the go,Netflixis almost a boon for the amusement hungry public. What’s better, it comes with its own liberty to view whatever and whenever! There is already a library of binge-worthy series available on Netflix and the latest to be added on to its bandwagon isLust stories.For the uninitiated,Lust storiesis a vignette of four arresting and subversive tales about morality and power. Out of the four filmmakers who had contributed to making this feature, it is Karan Johar’s story that stars Kiara Advani and Vicky Kaushal. The short revolves around Sandhya played by Kiara Advani a school teacher who desperately wants her husband Paras (Vicky) to learn a thing or two about lovemaking.We got in touch with Kiara who has been in the news sinceLust storiespremiered on Netflix because of her, ‘self-pleasuring scene.’ In a heart of hearts conversation, Kiara, who is busy shooting for her next Telegu film opposite Ram Charan, spoke at length about the controversial scene. Stepping into this new arena for the first time Kiara was pretty scared about it. Quipped she, “Lust stories had a few bedroom scenes. For me it was something, I was doing for the first time. I was new and I wasn’t quite comfortable. However, Vicky (Kaushal) made me feel very comfortable and so did everybody else and then we shot it.“In fact, it was so easy to work with him because he is genuinely a wonderful person and a lovely actor as well.” She affirmed.The actress who is elated to be a part of the short directed by K Jo couldn’t stop praising him and his way of working, she enthused, “Karan made sure that the scene was done very aesthetically.TheFuglyactress was pretty cool about the scene and considers it to be a step towards empowerment, she stated, “this is not the first time a film has a masturbation scene, - a classic movieWhen Harry met Sallyhas one such scene, there are many other films which have it and in my case, the scene has been shot really well.”TheKabhi Khushi Kabhi Ghamsoundtrack playing in the background was not at all off-putting to her while climaxing (for the scene i.e), she attested, “That K3G title music playing in the background added the much needed zing and humour to the scene and for the viewers, it has completely changed the way people look at that film. It is really funny because now I am a part of that distorted vision. It was a film that I grew up watching.”The beautiful actress who has done quite a few Telegu films thinks KJo is really confident in doing whatever he does and she is also overwhelmed with the kind of reactions she has got on her performance from the audiences. Dissing the possibility of any negativity from the audience, she avowed, “the audience has really taken the scene in their stride; they have loved and appreciated it, there has been no double standards about the scene, I am pretty sure because, I haven’t experienced it. They have also appreciated the fact that the topic has been brought up.The pretty lass was elated because everyone on the set was happy with the way she did the scene. “Everyone on the set came up to me and said you killed it.” She said with a fathomable mirth in her voice. She further stated, “It was a really difficult scene and they were happy. Karan (Johar) was very happy with the way it came out and that was great. We had filmed it in a very serious manner; there was a certain amount of laughter in the initial part when it starts off and then it kind of get into the space. So once we got into the space of it after the grandmother presses the remote control bringing Sandhya into an orgasmic ecstasy in front of Vicky and his parents. Everyone was pretty much serious while filming the scene and they weren’t laughing. They knew had they laughed, I would have started to laugh as well, so I had to be focused and it just happened organically by the end of it.”Well, all’s well that ends well – Desimartini wishes Kiara all the very best for all her future endeavors and hope she does great with all her ventures.

Hold your breath and get ready to feel really, really old. The film that made Nandini the ultimate dream, made us laugh out loud at the ‘Sameer…hawa ka jhonka’ joke, made us want to dance like Nandini in Nimbooda Nimbooda at every family wedding and made Vanraj our ultimate husband goal turns 19 today. Yes, Hum Dil De Chuke, which can easily be considered a modern classic and a game changer for Bollywood in many ways, released on this day 19 years back.While we struggle to come to terms with how old we have grown and how much Bollywood has changed in due course of time, here is taking a look at the epic Sanjay Leela Bhansali brand of romance and remember the things that make this movie a landmark.Salman-Aishwarya RomanceWhat happens to be one of the most celebrated romances of late 90s was translated in real life as well. It was on the sets of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam that the leads, Salman and Aishwarya fell madly in love with each other and started what happens to be the most talked about affair in the history of Bollywood.Sanjay Leela Bhansali MagicWhenever we think of Sanjay Leela Bhansali movies the image that comes to your mind are those of grand sets, elaborate costumes and a visual splendor and artistry that only he is capable of. SLB and his brand of cinema, as we know it now, started taking shape with Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. His love for grandeur and epic romantic tales was first seen in this film and ever since we have relied on SLB for wielding the magic of cinema on screen at its grandest for us.Upholding Cultural RichnessWhether its Gujarat in Ram-Leela, Maratha in Bajirao Mastani or Bengal in Devdas, SLB is also known for romanticizing particular Indian culture in all his films. This trend also he started with Hum Dil De Chuke where he portrayed Gujarati and Rajasthani traditions and culture with a beauty and splendor and nuance that literally took away our breath and made us sit up and appreciate the beauty of different culture in our country.A Musical ExperienceTo be honest, music has been an integral part of all SLB movies even before Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. However, with this one, he brought to the table a taste of music that was completely new in Bollywood. Ismail Darbar, who marked his debut as a music director with this film, delved deep into the rich treasure trove of classical and folk music of India and came up with a tune that enthralled everyone. It was traditional, contemporary, soothing, exciting all round amazing all at the same time. Just like cultures, this film is greatly responsible for making the youth the late 90s realize the power of Indian music. Needless to say, Ismail Darbar received a Filmfare award for his brilliant job.
