The 42-year-old actor says films are part of her life but she is now looking for something that she has not done before.

"I am happy to be still relevant in this time and age and doing more interesting things that I have not done before. I am very happy in this space. I do get film scripts and after few pages I feel I have done this before,"

she said, adding that a script should be worthy of the time that she spends away from her son.

"I am not interested in doing drama, there is enough drama happening in our lives. I want to do a funny film, a film that is entertaining and if possible show it to my son."

Walk faster to live healthy, longer

If you want to live longer and remain healthy, then #startwalking at a faster pace as it can reduce the risk of mortality due to cardiovascular disease, say researchers.

walk-faster-to-live-healthy-longer
The results showed that walking at an average pace reduced the risk of cardiovascular disease mortality by 24 per cent and 21 per cent for those walking at a faster pace.

Walking at an average pace also reduced the risk for all cause mortality by 20 per cent whereas walking at a fast pace reduced the risk by four more per cent, compared to walking at a slow pace.

"While sex and body mass index did not appear to influence outcomes, walking at an average or fast pace was associated with a significantly reduced risk of all-cause mortality and cardiovascular disease.There was no evidence to suggest pace had a significant influence on cancer mortality however," said lead author, Emmanuel Stamatakis, Professor from Charles Perkins Centre and School of Public Health at University of Sydney.

"A fast pace is generally five to seven kilometres per hour, but it really depends on a walker's fitness levels; an alternative indicator is to walk at a pace that makes you slightly out of breath or sweaty when sustained," he added.

The study published in British Journal of Sports Medicine, included data from 50,225 walkers.

Green tea may prevent deaths from heart attacks

Love your cup of #greentea? Besides playing a role in weight loss and boosting immunity, green tea -- rich in antioxidants -- may also help prevent deaths due heart attacks and strokes caused by atherosclerosis -- a condition of narrowed artery walls due to fat build-up, claims a study.

green-tea-may-prevent-deaths-from-heart-attacks
According to the researchers, a compound called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), found in green tea, breaks up and dissolves potentially dangerous protein plaques found in the blood vessels.

"The health benefits of green tea have been widely promoted and it has been known for some time that EGCG can alter the structures of amyloid plaques associated with Alzheimer's diseas," said David Middleton, Professor at Britain's Lancaster University.

"Our results show that this intriguing compound might also be effective against the types of plaques which can cause heart attacks and strokes," he added.

"... by engineering the molecule slightly, we might be able to make new medicines to treat heart attack and stroke," said Jeremy Pearson Professor and Associate Medical Director at the British Heart Foundation -- a Britain-based charity organisation.

The study, published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, showed that EGCG binds to the amyloid fibres of a protein called apolipoprotein A-1 (apoA-1), which converts the fibres to smaller soluble molecules that are less likely to be damaging to blood vessels.

Being Punjabi really helped me for 'Soorma', says Taapsee Pannu

Actress #TaapseePannu says being a Punjabi helped her to play her character in the film #Soorma.

being-punjabi-really-helped-me-for-soorma-taapsee-pannu
Taapsee, along with co-star Diljit Dosanjh and Indian hockey team's former captain Sandeep Singh -- whose life has inspired the movie -- was present at a promotional event of the film here on Thursday.

Asked whether being Punjabi helped her to play her character in "Soorma", Taapsee said: "I took a lot of advantage of that. When you do a Hindi film which has Punjab as its backdrop, then there is a feeling of home ground... For me, the challenging part was learning to play hockey than playing my character.

"Normally, sportspersons have a very aggressive and go-getter kind of personality but my character despite being a hockey player is coy and soft-spoken off the field. I don't relate with that trait at all so that was a bit challenging for me but being Punjabi really helped for this film to play the character other than that learning hockey and getting to relate to character's personality trait was bit difficult."

The "Pink" actress said she was very embarrassed that she herself didn't know about Singh's journey.

"For me, the biggest thrill was that I got the opportunity to work in a sports film because I really like sports. I never imagined that I will play hockey.

"In fact, I never used to watch hockey matches but at the same time, being an Indian, I was embarrassed with the fact that I wasn't aware of the story of Sandeep Singh. Doing this film was probably a way to rectify that guilt. After this film, I hope that no one will say that they don't know who is Sandeep Singh," Taapsee added.

On her role, the actress said: "There were lot of people in Sandeep Singh's life who were instrumental in his hockey career and I am playing the character of a girl who was an important reason to be a hockey player that he was."

Asked Was doing a sports based film more difficult than doing a regular commercial Hindi film, Taapsee said: "You don't get anything without facing difficult situations and at least, I haven't got anything without facing difficulties. I think in the future also, I will not get things easily in the film industry".

when-patralekhaa-found-rajkummar-horrible-man
“I first saw her in an advertisement on TV and found her to be the cutest girl ever,” said Rajkummar.
It was however not the same for Patralekhaa.

She said: “I didn’t like him at all at first. I always thought he was a horrible man because of the character that he played in ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’.”

It was only when she started chatting with him during their journey to Pune, that she realised that he was so different from what he was in the film.

She said: “I couldn’t believe this was the same man, he is so sweet and his passion for his work is what drew me to him.”

Rajkummar also revealed that he is a cleanliness freak.

“Every time I come out of the shower, I have to wipe the bathroom squeaky dry. I hate having a wet towel on the bed and everything in my bathroom has to be neatly organised. And I have zero tolerance for people who smear things on my face like smashing cakes on birthdays.

“I get so annoyed that I would go to the extent to cut off all ties with the person who dares to do the same.”

Ranbir along with director Rajkumar Hirani, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra, and co-star, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala and Vicky Kaushal were present at the trailer.

One day before the trailer release of Sanju, director Raju Hirani screened the trailer for Ranbir's father Rishi Kapoor. The veteran actor then praised his son's performance and swore that he thought it was Sanjay Dutt. When asked Ranbir about his reaction to the trailer he said, "Besides being my father, he is also an actor that I respect. Raju sir had recorded his reaction and sent it to me, I was shooting someplace else.

He never compliments me to my face, not that I expect it and all but to hear such words coming from him was an incredible experience for me. It really moved me and made me emotional. Every father wants their son to do well but my father is very careful that he won't give me a compliment for free. He always reminds us to work harder so this was a wonderful gift that Raju sir and Vidhu Sir had sent me."

In the full-length trailer, we see Sanjay Dutt's character honestly revealing that he had 308 girlfriends in his lifetime when asked Ranbir if he will honestly give out such information to everyone. " I won't allow it, I am not a courageous man enough like Sanju sir to give my life out so openly but my count is smaller than 10 so I don't think a biopic can be made on me."

Ranbir is one of the few actors who prefers to stay away from social media sites like Twitter. When asked if he thinks taking part will help promote the film more he said, "I don't think so, film is different and on social media, I would be showing myself. Of course, you have a reach to a larger audience but I don't miss it and I don't mind being away from it.

Never say never, maybe tomorrow I will come but right now I am happy being away from it."

Ranbir who has been shooting for Sanju since past one year was asked how much difficult was it to become Ranbir Kapoor again, he said, "It wasn't that difficult because I immersed myself into a different project named 'Bhramastra'. This happens a lot with the actor when they are promoting one film they are already shooting for another so I am already in another character right now. So thankfully it was smooth for me."

Asked if he is open to working in another biopic, after 'Sanju' if offered the chance Ranbir said, he'd be happy to do it, "Any story that inspires whether it is a biopic or fiction, as long as there is a story to be told I would love to be a part of it."

When asked if fans are going to see one of his best performances in Sanju and if he think this it will be the best film in his career he said, "Of course and its crucial and this will be the best film in my career and it would be amazing if this film becomes blockbuster. So please do want the film in the theater."

Director Dibakar Banerjee said it felt like his first film and didn't want to compromise with the film's post-production time.

“I feel this is my first film all over again, at least in terms of the excitement with the material. Sandeep and Pinky bring to screen the two India's that are forever clashing. I want the audience not to lose a second of that. We finished the shoot one month late because of the intense weather conditions on the Indo-Nepal border. 

I don't want Sandeep and Pinky to be shortchanged on edit time. YRF agreed with my request and so we are pressing on together to the new date. 2019 is when India chooses its future. I'm looking forward to release in that year and choose mine.”

Rohan Malhotra, VP - Distribution at YRF added, “Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar will now release on March 1, 2019. Arjun and Parineeti have Namaste England releasing on Dussehra this year and the makers had announced this date a while back. It would have been unfair for us to request them to shift their film. Also, we wanted to have a gap between these two films as it features the same star cast and given the extremely busy release calendar of this year, we feel March 1 is the best date for our movie to open.”
