Refuting rumours that she has signed a Hollywood project titled Curry in Love with the Tamil filmmaker P Vasu, the actress Sonam Kapoor said on Tuesday that she knows nothing about it. “Nobody has approached me for a Hollywood project,” she said, but added that she would love to do films in different languages. “Language has never been a barrier for me. If I get a challenging role, I would be more than willing to work in any language,” she said. Kapoor is awaiting the release of her romantic drama Raanjhanaa, out in UAE cinemas tomorrow. – IANS

Prateik Babbar excited about his role in the action film Issaq

Prateik Babbar, who will be seen in Issaq soon, feels blessed to have landed the lead role in the film. “The part has everything in it; drama, violence, heroism. It is the perfect package,” he said at the poster and music launch of the film. “I did a lot of preparation for the role, including working on my diction,” he said. The actor also talked about the lows in his career. “When you put in a lot of effort and then people don’t like the film, it makes you upset. But I am a fighter,” he said. In Issaq, Babbar will be seen opposite the newcomer Amyra Dastur. “I was apprehensive because Amyra is so young. I didn’t know if she would be able to pull off the role. But when she started the workshop, she took everyone by surprise,” he said. The film is scheduled to release on July 26. – I ANS
