New Delhi, Oct 18 (IANS) Travelling through Punjab for his forthcoming film "Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana" has perhaps tempted actor Kunal Kapoor to think of stepping into the business of food.
"Punjab is a place of nostalgia for me. Having been in Mumbai all through my life, I got the taste and feel of my roots, the real Punjab while shooting for 'Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurana'," said Kunal.
"I had some amazing food while shooting for our film, which incidentally happens to be Bollywood's first ever food film. It will be great to do something with the rich Punjabi cuisine culture," he added.
The movie, releasing Nov 2, revolves around a popular Chicken Khurana recipe.
Big B wants to work with young talent
Watching Karan Johar's "Student Of The Year" (SOTY) has left Amitabh Bachchan very excited. The 70-year-old star says he wants to be part of movies with young and fresh blood.
"Getting to see Karan Johar's 'Student of the Year' at night has been refreshing and filled with joy... the young talent, the enthusiasm and vigour in their application, their faultless performances and the deft touch of a director who knows his craft backwards," Big B wrote on his blog, post a trial of the film here Wednesday night.
SOTY marks the Bollywood debut of actors Varun Dhawan, Siddharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt.
Amitabh, whose last big screen outing was the 2011 movie "Bbuddah... Hoga Terra Baap", has expressed his wish to work with an energetic cast and be part of the new talent.
"A desire creeps in of being at their age again and to get opportunity to work along with them, to share their youthful exuberance and freedom, their ability to bring light. Each attempt made by this generation fills me with happiness and joy," he wrote.
SOTY releases Friday.
More money for hosting? Ayushmann snubs question!
Video jockey-turned-actor Ayushmann Khurrana has hosted several shows and live events, but one wonders if he has increased his anchoring fee post the success of "Vicky Donor".
"How can I answer this? Yes, it's part of your work... and fortunately my debut as an actor was successful. But this is very awkward, I will not comment on it," Ayushmann said in reaction to the question here.
The actor will anchor the forthcoming People's Choice Awards ceremony here Oct 27, and admits "It's a bigger platform compared to the past."
