Ravi Kishan recreates Aamir's train stunt from 'Ghulam'

Remember the iconic scene from 1998 film "Ghulam", where Aamir Khan was shown racing against the train to win a bet? Something similar has been recreated by Ravi Kishan in his upcoming film "Jeena Hai Toh Thok Daal".

Ravi had seen Aamir's performance long back and was eager to do something similar ever since.

"Raviji couldn't believe it when director Manish Vatsalya told him about the scene. He was so stunned that his dream scene was being offered to him and it just fit so well in 'Jeena Hai Toh Thok Daal'," said a source.

"Jeena Hai Toh Thok Daal" revolves around three mischievous men - essayed by Ravi, Manish Vatsalya and Rahul Kumar - who belong to a small village in Bihar. They enjoy doing nasty things like picking pockets and making illegal weapons until their addictive thrill and the greed for money lands them in the city of dreams, Mumbai. The film is slated for release Sep 14.


I'm different, but being myself: Kalki

Actress Kalki Koechlin, known for bringing freshness to her role with movies like "Dev D", "Shaitan" and "That Girl In Yellow Boots", says even though people perceive her as being different, she is always just herself.

"I am myself. It's not that I try to be different. I am myself. My upbringing and everything has made me different," Kalki, whose style and choices are different from a conventional Bollywood actress, told IANS.

"No matter how much I try to blend it, I am never able to blend it in. I have accepted that and am celebrating it," she added.

The actress has wrapped up shooting for Vishal Bharadwaj's "Ek Thi Daayan" and is busy shooting for Ayaan Mukherjee's "Ye Jawani Hai Deewani".
