Richa’s 12 avatars for Shakeela
Actress Richa Chadha will be featured in 12 different avatars, as Shakeela makers will soon launch a first-of-its-kind 90s pulp movies-inspired calendar. For the first time a film will have a dedicated calendar being launched starring it’s central character. It will have Richa posing in posters inspired by genre of the cheesiest, quirkiest pulp films of the 90s which would be equally hilarious and yet will be induced with a great deal of thought as an homage to the genre. Richa said, “Even though our film is in post-production, we wanted to do something special. The team thought we should pay this homage to Shakeela and the films that she has been a part of. I hope people find the humour in this calendar.”
‘I was fortunate to get good songs and collaborate with amazing choreographers to create memorable songs which are still loved and enjoyed so much. There is no substitute to hard work. To succeed, two per cent is genius and 98 per cent is hard work. I have tried to give my best in every role.’

The title of forthcoming film Cheat India has been changed to Why Cheat India after the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) expressed concern over it, the makers have said.
A statement issued on behalf of the film's producers and Emraan Hashmi Films read, “The CBFC had concerns about the title Cheat India. We had an extensive conversation with the Examining Committee and Revising Committee regarding the proposed change as the film has been in public domain for a year, and more importantly, because the theatrical teaser, trailer and television promos had already been certified with the original title.”
The film releases January 18.
I like chaos: Christian
Academy award-winning actor Christian Bale, who is known for undergoing physical transformations for his performances, says he likes chaos.
He has delivered on demanding performances — whether it was his skeletal frame in The Mechanist or the Herculean built in The Dark Knight Rises, the mentally exhausting character of a sadistic psychopath and a deranged serial killer in American Psycho or as Dick Cheney in Vice, where he has managed to bulk up and try prosthetics. Asked if there is anything else he aspires to do, Bale said, “I have never had a plan or a strategy. I like chaos. So, I wait to see what happens next.”
