Boman Irani: I'm brilliant at overacting

The veteran actor Boman Irani reveals dubbing for the animated film Delhi Safari was easy as he is "brilliant at overacting". "We had to act out everything, whether expressions or body movements. But overacting is something I can do very easily," said the 52-year-old actor. "You have to believe that character you are playing is you. Because acting is about lying and how much of that lie is the audience accepting." Directed by Nikhil Advani, the 3D film is slated for an October 19 release. – IANS

Katrina Kaif looks forward to Raajneeti sequel

Katrina Kaif, who won acclaim for her role in the 2010 political thriller Raajneeti, says she's excited to begin shooting the film's sequel, to be helmed again by Prakash Jha. "I would love to work with Prakash again. We've had discussions about the story. There are very few scripts that are genuinely entertaining and Raajneeti is one genius idea. I really hope everything falls in place," said Kaif, who added that filming will begin as soon as Jha wraps up his other film, Satyagraha, headlined by Amitabh Bachchan. – IANS

Abhishek Bachchan is working on two new films

After the blockbuster success of Bol Bachchan last month, Abhishek Bachchan says he is back at work filming two new projects: the comedy Dostana 2 and the action thriller Dhoom 3: Back in Action. "It's very nice to see directors' renewed confidence in my work. It's a great feeling," said the actor, who just came from London to watch the Olympics. "It was an unbelievable experience! The highlight for me was to see the Indian flag high up in the Olympics stadium amid the flags of other countries." – IANS

Sohail Sen says the Indian music industry is on a high

The composer Sohail Sen, who is behind the foot-tapping numbers in the new film Ek Tha Tiger, believes India's music industry is in its best phase. "A lot of young musicians are coming up with new ideas and a lot of experimentation is happening," he said. "It's great to see producers opening up to new kinds of music, giving us more space to create something different." Sen, 28, has composed three songs for Ek Tha Tiger – Laapata, Banjaara and Saiyaara – which are already climbing Indian music charts. – IANS
