R Balki, the best director: Sonam

As her film PadMan turned one, actress Sonam Kapoor Ahuja said that director R Balki is one of the best directors that she has worked with. Sonam took to Instagram and shared a still from the film and captioned it, “One year of our film PadMan. Balki sir, you have been one of the best people I know besides being one of the best directors I have worked with.” The film, which has a message about menstrual hygiene, also stars Akshay Kumar and Radhika Apte. Talking about Akshay, Sonam wrote, “You have been pushing boundaries like no one’s business and it is super inspirational.”

She said, “The most important Arunachalam Muruganantham, your story was important to tell and thanks for trusting our team for it.”

‘I fear losing relevance, not stardom. I’ve never been a desperate person. I’ve been a lucky girl and lived by my own rules and not the industry norms.  The fear exists because there is a lot of investment involved as a person into it and not just as an actor. I am the same person I had been since the beginning. My wants have been simple ever since I began.’

—Bipasha Basu

Singer Sonu Nigam has also been a composer, performer, host as well as an actor.

He says while most people make films to launch themselves, the Jaani Dushman: Ek Anokhi Kahani actor never made any movie for himself. In the new video of the song Ishq ki gali from the film SP Chauhan, Sonu is seen flaunting his dance and acting skills. “I’ve featured in a song for a film after a long time and it felt nice. It’s a lot of fun. It’s a wedding song. I did this out of my love for Vibhas (composer) and also because the ethos behind the film is so nice,” said Sonu.

NASA tweets Ariana on her song

Pop star Ariana Grande's new song NASA has led to an exchange of tweets between the US space agency and the singer.

“Hey, we saw NASA trending this morning and thought it was about one of our new discoveries. But we realised that you might need some space,” tweeted NASA along with an image of the cosmos referring to the song.

The pop star retweeted NASA's post with emojis almost instantly.

The song itself lives up to its name with reference to space exploration and the cosmos. The lyrics include I'm the universe and you be N-A-S-A" along with Neil Armstrong's voice.
