Action time for Darsheel

Actor Darsheel Safary has moved beyond his Taare Zameen Par days.

His forthcoming film, Disney's Zokkomon, boasts of action sequences and stunts done by the young actor for which he was trained by Jackie Chan's stunt director, William Ong.

The stunt man was quite impressed with the child actor's dedication. The film unravels an adventure of a brave ordinary boy who meets unexpected challenges and rises as a super hero.

One for Ash

The Bachchan bahu made her presence felt at the recent FICCI FRAMES 2011 event held in Mumbai, not just for sharing the stage with Hugh Jackman for but for her own contribution to cinema. She was presented with an award for her contribution to Hindi cinema for over a decade. The ceremony included an audio visual presentation of her journey through the decade including all her films. Ash would wish that all this would translate to some luck for her films poised to release in 2011. Barring Robot, all her other much-hyped films turned out box office turkeys in 2010.

Ajay is back in khakis

After a host of comedies and family dramas, Ajay Devgn is back to what he loves doing best — action movies! The actor is shooting for Singham, directed by Rohit Shetty. The remake of the Telugu-Tamil blockbuster marks his return to action films after eight years. The actor believes that the film will connect to the man on the streets because of its simple narrative and terrific action. We hope so too, since the actors needs a big solo hit.
