Director Ashima Chibber, whose film Mere Dad Ki Maruti hit the bulls’ eye last week, says that her love for films began when she worked as an usher in a film hall in the UK! The 30-something Ashima says that she would have ended up as a professor given her family history and was even studying Latin American Literature at the post graduate level. “For my further studies, I went to the UK, got a side job as an usher and was introduced to the wonderful world of European cinema in the fantastic two years that changed my life!” says the lady who has already been signed up for two more YashRaj projects.

Liquid’s solid roles!

Liquid (aka Divyendu Sharma) of Pyar Ka Punchnama-fame is back in a new and interesting avatar in the upcoming Chashme Baddoor. Divyendu has to work extra hard so he can shake off his earlier tag, and in this David Dhawan’s remake of the classic comedy he plays a ‘romantic’ poet who can pass off comic trash with a straight face. “He genuinely thinks he is a good poet,” says Divyendu, who assures we will never see him jumping of the bed or making faces to have us rolling on the floor laughing. He also has Zaalim Dilli, a heist drama in his kitty, where he plays a serious, righteous character.
