Prateik is quite literally sweating it out in the ghats of Benaras. And the heat wave is not the only reason. Shooting for Manish Tiwary’s upcoming film Issaq, a version of Romeo and Juliet, the young actor has been training for parkour and a fire dance sequence. Both he and the director were excited about doing the action stunts without the use of body doubles. Well, no pain no gain.

Bringing on the laughs

After starring in two ‘comic’ roles, Kunaal Roy Kapur has been labelled the funny guy. The success and critical acclaim he got for adult comedy Delhi Belly and the recent Nautanki Saala, has landed Kunaal yet another comedy — a bromance by Kabir Sadanand tentatively titled Gollu Aur Pappu. The film will also feature Vir Das. Meanwhile, he is also finalising the cast of his upcoming directorial venture, which is a dark comedy with a social message.
