Tell about your films in 2015?

I’ve shot for just one film this year. So I’ll have just one release next year. And I am okay with that.It just happened that way.

Are you looking forward to the awards for Highway?

Of course I want the awards. I don’t know if I am going to get them. But honestly I feel I’ve had a really blessed year. Recently I was at an event in the college. And they were dancing to my song. That brought tears to my eyes. That was my biggest high.

Are you by nature a happy person?

I’ve a fear of being happy. Because I fear grief is around the corner. I am Piscean. And I am a complete drama queen.

Do you get stifled by the constant attention?

No. When people stop looking at me is when I am will get really worried.

Do you enjoy traveling for shooting?

I am an inquisitive and excited traveller, so I do like to take time off to travel independent of work. And I will take time off to take a holiday every year. That’s a promise I made to myself.And visit a place I’ve not seen. The experiences that you create for yourself help you to grow as a person. I need those experiences to feed on.I am happy working hard and taking an annual holiday.And of course my mom joins me for my shootings whenever she can.

Did your mom join you for the shooting of Shaandaar in Europe?

She was supposed to. But there was a change in my schedule and she couldn’t join me. Now she’ll get busy directing a film.So she’ll have no time for me.

Your mom is directing a film with other actors. Does that make you jealous?

Why should it make me jealous? I am just so excited that she is directing a film again. This film(Love Affair) has no role suitable for me. I wouldn’t like to be in it just for the heck of it.In our family it doesn’t work that way. I still haven’t worked with my father’s production house.

Aamir Khan say there is no Intolerance in India, urges Modi to reign in people spreading hatred

Aamir-Khan-say-there-is-no-Intolerance-in-India,-urges-Modi-to-reign-in-people-spreading-hatred

Days after his intolerance remarks, Bollywood star Aamir Khan today said India is “very tolerant” but there are people who spread hatred and appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to rein them in.

The actor also believes that he still continues to be country’s brand ambassador even though the government may have discontinued his services, saying India is his mother and not a brand.

“Our country is very tolerant, but there are people who spread ill-will…Those who speak of breaking up this vast country, such people are present in all religions, only Modiji can stop them. After all, Modiji is our PM, we have to tell him,” he told Rajat Sharma in his ‘Aap ki Adalat’ show on India TV, according to a press release issued by the channel.

Aamir said a sense of security comes from the justice system, which should ensure speedy justice, and from elected representatives who should raise their voice when something goes wrong.

“After all, law is equal for all, and nobody is above law. Unfortunately, there are some people who spread negativity and hatred. If I am not wrong, our Prime Minister has also expressed concern. His slogan is ‘sabka saath, sabka vikas’,” he said.

The actor, who hit headlines with his remarks that his wife was thinking of leaving India over growing intolerance, also replied to megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s remark that he damaged India’s brand identity by his statement, saying there was a feeling of insecurity due to growing intolerance.

“I had said in my interview that there was a sense of depression, a sense of despondency, a feeling of insecurity and intolerance was growing. But these are entirely two different things,” he said.

He added that he was “wongly quoted” and said, “I never said India was intolerant, I was wrongly quoted…To say about rising intolerance and to say India is intolerant are two different things.”

Claiming to continue serving as India’s brand ambassador even after government discontinued him, the superstar said, “For me, my motherland is my mother, it cannot be a brand. I can never view my mother as a brand. It could be a brand for other people, but not for me. Till this date, I continue to be India’s brand ambassador, even the government may have discontinued me.”

He said for 10 years he was brand ambassador for ‘Incredible India’s Atithi Devo Bhavo campaign’ and never charged a penny for all his public service campaigns for the country and nor will he charge in future.

Aamir also asked media and news channels not to air news about violence on TV as it creates an atmosphere of fear.

“Every Indian is infected with fear. I would also appeal to media not to highlight such violence, as it creates a sense of insecurity and fear among common people,” he said.

On his wife Kiran Rao expressing her intent to leave India due to insecurity, Aamir said he and his wife were not going anywhere and have been born here and will die in India, but said, “After all, Kiran is a mother, a mother always worries about her children.”

“Often we speak so many things among ourselves, but that does not mean, we take 100 per cent action on them. Now was that our intention. Kiran has actually expressed a feeling, an emotion, and we were born here, and we will die here. We are not going to leave our country, let me make it clear,”he said.

The superstar went on to say that whenever people try to divide, “we should become alert, and should beware as to why we are being reminded that we are Muslim, Hindu, or Sikh. After all, we are all Indians. We have to be on our quard.”

Seeking to clarify that there was intent on his or his director’s part on purportedly denigrating Hindu religion in his film ‘PK’, he said, “It was only a character playing the role of Shiva in a play, who was made fun of, in a particular situation. After all, Lord Shankar is Almighty, how can we dare to make fun of him?.”

The actor said he fully empathised with the cause of Kashmiri Pandits. “My heart cries even today for them. It is shameful, and I appeal to people living in the Valley to bring the Kashmiri Pandits back.”

Jeremy Lin slams Chris Rock’s 'racist' Asian joke at Oscars

Los Angeles (IANS): Actor-comedian Chris Rock’s Asian joke at the 2016 Academy Awards might have made people burst into laughter, but NBA star Jeremy Lin wasn’t amused.

The Charlotte Hornets star took to his Twitter page to share how upset he was because some people thought that making fun of Asians was “cool”, reports aceshowbiz.com.

“Tired of it being ‘cool’ and ‘ok’ to bash Asians,” he wrote, while asking, “when is this going to change?”

Despite the fact that Rock earned positive reviews of his jabs at #OscarsSoWhite controversy at the gala night on Sunday, the 51-year-old host appeared to disappoint some people when he made a joke involving Asian children.

In the middle of his monologue at the awards show held on Sunday, he said that he wanted to introduce the accountants from Price Waterhouse Coopers, which tabulated the vote results.

People started to laugh when they learned that the accountants were two Asian boys and an Asian girl whom Rock named Ming Zu, Bao Ling and David Moskowitz. The three children walked onstage as they brought briefcases, illustrating the stereotype that Asian people are diligent workers who are also good at mathematics.

However, some people were upset when Rock said, “If anybody’s upset about that joke, just tweet about it on your phone that was also made by these kids.”

They were quick to interpret that Rock implied Asian children were either accountants or child labourers.
