“I treat each and every film/show of mine as the first one, which helps me think of the plot in a new and fresh way. aHostages’ is one such example. For me, every element and every person who is involved in the project forms an integral part, including the actors, producers, writer, cameraman and the whole team,” Mishra said in a statement to IANS.

“Hostages” is an intense psychological crime-thriller that follows a renowned surgeon about to perform a routine operation on the President. But her family is taken hostage and she is ordered to sabotage the procedure and kill the President.

Ronit says “Hostages” is a show “which had me arrested in front of the screen when I watched it”.

“It has been hugely appreciated all over the globe and my character in the series is very intriguing. I constantly strive to keep my audiences engaged and entertained with each of my performances. I’m delighted to work with an excellent director like Sudhir Mishra for this series,” he added.

On her role, Tisca said: “My character in the series is very demanding and it will be challenging to live up to the high hopes set by the original show. But I’m sure that having a director like Sudhir Mishra and a cast full of brilliant actors, this journey will be an interesting one. A show like this has never been made before and ‘Hostages’ will give a fresh turn to the Indian digital space.”

Parvin says his role challenges him as an actor.

“The script of ‘Hostages’ is spell binding and I’m very thrilled that I’m getting directed by Sudhir Mishra and collaborating with actors like Ronit Roy and Tisca Chopra for this wonderful project,” he added.

The shoot of “Hostages” is currently going on in Mumbai and the other actors in the series are Malhaar Rathod, Sharad Joshi, Aashim Gulati, Surya Sharma and Anangsha Biswas. The show is expected to stream later this year.

Mumbai, A throwback image of Bollywood star Ranveer Singh sporting a funky mohawk hairdo during his childhood, elicited various emotions among his celebrity friends, with Deepika Padukone expressing disbelief with a big “Noooooooo”.

While Deepika reacted to the photograph by writing “Noooooooo” along with three see-no-evil monkey emojis, veteran actor Anil Kapoor found his look daring.

“I told you at that party when I first saw this look, and I’ll tell you now… You will go far and roar, Tiger. The roaring has just begun! #DaringSince1985,” Anil wrote to Ranveer, who played his on-screen son in “Dil Dhadakne Do”.

Ranveer’s “Padmaavat” co-star Aditi Rao Hydari found his look epic, while actress Diana Penty found it amusing.Cricketer Shikhar Dhawan poked fun at Ranveer saying the photo gives a hint of how much of a troublemaker he would have been as a youngster.

Mumbai, Telugu film actor Vijay Devarakonda, who has plans to auction the Filmfare Awards trophy that he won for his work in “Arjun Reddy” earlier this month, says it was an instinctive idea to do something good for the people of Andhra Pradesh.

Vijay is never short of ideas on how to extend the boundaries of his stardom. On his birthday, Vijay had came up with the clever idea of distributing ice cream to all his fans and well wishers all over Hyderabad. And now, it’s an auction of his award to contribute to the Chief Minister’s relief fund.

“Why did I do it? Why have I decided to auction my trophy? There’s no major thought going behind it. Nor did I plot and plan before doing it. It was just an instinctive thought, ‘Why not use this wonderful opportunity to do good for the people of Andhra Pradesh?’

“I acted spontaneously… Just as I acted when I decided to take a fan along to the Filmfare Awards with me. I just wanted to make it more memorable for me. Instead of the trophy just lying on my shelf, I thought its life will be longer and also mean more if I could auction is for a cause I believe in. It’s also a nice story to tell my grandkids someday.” Vijay said.

The video of Vijay and his fan Prashant twinning in identical suits at the Filmfare Awards went viral.Auctioning the award trophy was not the only thought that occurred to Vijay when he received the award.

“I wanted to dedicate my award to my ‘Arjun Reddy’ director Sandeep Vanga who made it possible for me to get into this character. The role had been offered to many other far more successful actors, and rejected. That it came finally came to me is my good fortune.”
