SRK to be honoured at WEF
Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan will be honoured at the 24th Annual Crystal Awards — as part of the World Economic Forum's 48th Annual Meeting held later this month — for his leadership in championing children's and women's rights in India.
“Each of them in their own way has taken action to uphold human dignity,” read the statement.
Shah Rukh is being feted as he is a founder of the non-profit MeerFoundation, which provides support to female victimsof acid attacks and major burn injuries through medical treatment, legal aid, vocational training, rehabilitation and livelihood support.
‘Kaalakaandi is one of the funniest films I have seen in a long time. Haven't laughed this much since I read the script of Delhi Belly. Absolutely loved all the performances. Saif was outstanding. I am proud of debut Akshat (director).’ Don't miss this one.’
— Aamir Khan
Singer Ricky Martin has married his partner Jwan Yosef whom she has been dating since 2016.
“We exchanged vows ... and we've signed all the papers we needed to sign, prenups and everything. It feels amazing! I can't introduce him as my fiance. I can't. He's my husband. He's my man,” Martin said.
The couple plans to have a huge party. Martin said guests can expect to enjoy for three days.“The typical three-day party, the dinner, the rehearsal, the party and the recovery.”
The Magicians role takes 9 hours
It took nine hours for American-Pakistani actor Faran Tahir to get into the character's look in TV show The Magicians which is based on the novel by the same name by Lev Grossman.
“The make-up for my character alone took nine-hour sessions at the hand of expert make-up artists. It always humbles me how collaborative the performing arts form is. Without all creatives working in harmony one would never be able to make an idea like this into a reality,” said Tahir who essays the role of the brother of Winter's Doe aka The White Lady.
While the character is primarily menacing, he also has a wicked sense of humour which is why him and Eliot end up connecting.
