Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma has worked together in super-hit “Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi” and coming back with another musical romantic drama “Jab Harry Met Sejal”.

During a recent interview Shahrukh Khan was quoted that Anushka Sharma paid her a compliment about being a good person, but never a good actor, which has actress in a tight spot and now leggy lass finally explains her compliment, which was taken the wrong way.  

“See, what I told him and what I meant by it, since I am so philosophical, what I meant was being a good actor or being good at your job is given. He is Shahrukh Khan, so who am I to comment on him, especially on the part how he is an actor?”  

“But I did tell him that the way he was with me, throughout the film and how he made me feel so important. I didn’t feel intimidated by him at all and I was extremely grateful to be working on the film. Overtime I’ve come to appreciate him more and more, so that is what I meant, when I said, He is a good person. Because I think being a good actor is given but above all that we need to be a good person. I was giving him a compliment because for me that is most important; being a good” added Anushka.

I learnt what my worth is and what I should charge; I don't go to the opening of an envelope, I don't say yes to every job," Price said during a chat about gender pay gaps, reports dailymail.co.uk.

huge-fan-of-nawazuddin-siddiqui-prachi-desai
"I am a huge fan of Nawazuddin, and I believe he is one of the best actors ever. It's great that we collaborated for something so meaningful," Prachi said in a statement.

Set in 2067, "Carbon" talks about global warming and its impact on Earth. It is co-produced by Jackky Bhagnani and Deepshikha Deshmukh.

"‘Carbon' is a film that talks about the hazards of global warming, something that one is aware about but not willing to take actions to bring a change. Hence, this is an attempt via this film to imagine a futuristic world devastated by the climate change, where oxygen and then water become the most expensive commodities on the planet and the rich and famous emigrate to Mars," Prachi said.
