VUDA, According to N V Patel, he is from Lucknow and Parineeti you are from Hyderabad. so which cuisine: Hyderabadi or Lucknowi did you like best Both: Very hard to choose PC: But yes I like the Hyderabadi biryani better I like the nal nihari and kebabs from Lucknow better In Daawwt-e-Ishq you fall in love over food Is that possible in real life PC: Oh 100 per cent In fact I would like it to happen like that ARK: I would say it can happen over food but not just because of food I remember this girl asked me that if a girl came to me with a nice dish and proposed to me would I say yes I said it’s a great strategy but I can’t say yes just because she has cooked something nice The person also has to be good na PC: Yes but it can be one of the things that can evoke love because I feel if you can travel with a person and eat with a person comfortably it speaks volumes about your relationship and shows a great bond And also I would not like the person with me commenting on the way I eat at all I really enjoy eating For me food would be a great catalyst for falling in love but it would not seal the deal It’s not going to be the only reason of saying yes Who between the two of you is a good cook and did anyone cook on the sets PC: He cooks But he didn’t cook on the sets or we wouldn’t be alive today ARK: Anyway on the set we just ate and ate PC: We are not the kind to stand and cook in the kitchen Aditya wants to learn to cook one day and maybe after 20 years I will learn to cook But certainly not now Tell us who was Habib Faisal’s (director of Dawaat-e-Ishq) favourite on the sets ARK: Obviously Pari because he has made two films with her PC: That’s saying something (peals of laughter) ARK: You can see that they have a wonderful understanding He comes on the sets and says hmm and she says hmm and knows exactly what he wants Otherwise how would you describe him as a director ARK: He has this quality of never settling for mediocrity or sub-standard work And that’s a wonderful thing for actors as it makes them feel safe and protected He’s not going to pass a take just because there’s no time or something like that He’s gonna wait and get the best out of the actors He’s very clear about what he wants because he’s a writer- director and 99 per cent his instinct is always right PC: Yes I would say the same What was the most memorable part of the shoot ARK: I think we had a good time shooting Daawat-e-Ishq We got to chill and all that but the golden days were the ones where there was Anupam sir her and me together on the sets PC: Yes yes and if you ask me what I took away from the film it would be Anupam sir and Aditya’s existence in my life I would never have met them if it would not have been for the film We bonded at such a level that till today I enjoy going out and eating with them or travelling with them If both Aditya and I are going for some promotions we always think of him We genuinely like each others company I remember riding the scooter with Anupam sir behind me at times in heavy traffic in Hyderabad The only thought on my mind was that I should not kill him ARK: For me there was this sequence where I am in front of my restaurant and had to shoot a long scene in one shot It was tough keeping the background in mind know my lines focus on being in frame etc What did you learn from Anupam Kher ARK: The way he approaches his work and life is very inspiring He’s a very very positive person Anytime you ask him how he is and his answer is always the same —fantastic And that positivity rubs off And if any us showed any sign of being down he would say ‘don’t you dare because no one in the theatre is going to know that you had a bad morning’ PC: Yes he’s a lovely person Aditya what did you think of Parineeti in Hasee Toh Phasee And do you think she should stick to playing vivacious characters ARK: Oh it was fun I really loved her and Sid’s (Sidharth Malhotra) performance I think she is in the mood to experiment and play different kind of roles It’s also my intent as an actor to challenge and stretch myself Her boundaries are endless and when someone has the kind of talent she has she should utilise herself to her full potential PC: And I loved Aashiqui 2 I swear more than him and Shraddha (Kapoor) I loved the film in totality Some of the moments in the film are magical for me and even if it airs on television today I sit down to watch it And whatever he is today is because of Aashiqui 2 I feel no one could have played the role better and it really brought out a lot of things about his personality on screen He should do a lot of films like that they will enhance the person he is Music is a common interest you both share Any singing on the sets ARK: Yes of course we bonded over music She has this tendency to suddenly break into a song PC: I like singing and he’s got a very good ear for music and plays the guitar so well so it was very cool Also if a person doesn’t stop me from singing for me he is great ARK: You can leave the room if you want but don’t stop her from singing PC: But he left the room on many days In fact he left the set What are your expectations from Daawat-e-Ishq PC: I hope that people accept it in the way we have made it It’s a sweet feel-good film and one can expect two hours of happiness and positivity I hope people enjoy it ARK: I guess it’s the same The intention is to entertain and I think we have achieved that The message (dowry menace) is very important but it is put across in a very light-hearted way It’s not in-your-face And Habib has extracted some good performances from us What about your upcoming films PC: I have Kill Dil but I cannot reveal much about it because the producers have not given me the green signal It’s a cool fun film I am trying something new and want to see if the risk pays off I loved doing it and hope you guys love it as well ARK: My next is Fitoor and we should start shooting in October I am very excited about it

Awards race by favoring one late-season release (‘American Sniper’) over another (‘Selma’) Related News The Oscar nominations added intrigue if not diversity to an Academy Awards race by favoring one late-season release (‘American Sniper’) over another (‘Selma’) The flip-flopping of fortunes however did little to dislodge the humble coming-of-age epic ‘Boyhood’ which has steadily grown into the movie to beat in a little-seen Oscar field closely followed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s backstage ego trip ‘Birdman’ The two films solidified themselves as favorites with best-picture and best-director nominations ‘Boyhood’ chalked up its expected six nominations including supporting nods for Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke And ‘Birdman (or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)’ landed a co-leading nine nominations including best actor for Michael Keaton “I don’t care how much people tell you: ‘It’s gonna happen’ When it happens you’re thrilled” said Keaton about his first nomination (Read: Oscar Awards 2015: Complete list of nominations – ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ ‘Birdman’ lead with nine) But the Oscar race — the near-culmination Hollywood’s ever-expanding industrial complex called awards season — may have gotten more competitive in Thursday’s nominations Clint Eastwood’s ‘American Sniper’ (six nods) Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ (nine nominations) and ‘The Imitation Game’ (eight nominations) all emerged as heftier contenders while ‘Selma’ largely fizzled Each joined a best-picture field that also included the Stephen Hawking biopic ‘The Theory of Everything’ and the music school psychodrama ‘Whiplash’ The modestly sized movies — all dwarfed by Hollywood’s stampede of bigger blockbusters at the box office — make for a classy but not particularly high-wattage batch of nominees That may challenge host Neil Patrick Harris to drive viewers to the Feb 22 ceremony The nominees also amount to a distinctly white Oscars All 20 of the nominated actors are white which led to the trending Twitter hashtag “OscarsSoWhite” on Thursday Though Ava DuVernay’s civil rights drama ‘Selma’ was once seen as a major contender it landed just two nominations (The second was for best song) David Oyelowo who stars as Martin Luther King Jr in ‘Selma’ was surprisingly left out of best actor The poor showing of ‘Selma’ (and on King’s birthday no less) came after nagging criticism over its portrayal of President Lyndon Johnson Rev Al Sharpton said the lack of votes for the drama about the voting rights movement was ironic and called the diversity of the nominations overall “appalling” It’s a nightmare scenario for the Academy of Motion Pictures which has in recent years sought to diversify its ranks It also comes a year after the best-picture win for ’12 Years a Slave’ during which there was much chest-thumping about Hollywood’s thawing close-mindedness Whereas the late December arrival of ‘Selma’ appeared to hurt its chances similar timing was on target for Clint Eastwood’s Navy SEAL drama ‘American Sniper’ Bradley Cooper who plays lethal marksman Chris Kyle in the film seemed to take Oyelowo’s best-actor spot Wes Anderson’s old Europe caper ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ which also won best comedy or musical at the Globes has emerged as the most unexpected awards heavyweight It managed nine nominations without a single acting nod and was instead repeatedly cited for Anderson’s meticulous craft in directing production design makeup and screenplay ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ (opening all the way back in March) is also the most lucrative best-picture entry with $591 million at the North American box office (That though will soon change after ‘American Sniper’ expands nationwide this weekend) Box-office hits were scarce Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ reeled in five nominations in technical categories David Fincher’s popular and well-reviewed ‘Gone Girl’ managed only a best-actress nomination for Rosamund Pike Marion Cotillard (the French-language ‘Two Days One Night’) was the surprise nominee for best actress She and Pike were joined by Felicity Jones (‘The Theory of Everything’) Julianne Moore (‘Still Alice’) and Reese Witherspoon (‘Wild’) Those picks left Jennifer Aniston’s pained and grieving performance in ‘Cake’ on the outside The eight nominations for the World War II code-breaker thriller ‘The Imitation Game’ about pioneering computer scientist Alan Turing included best actor for Benedict Cumberbatch and supporting actress for Keira Knightley The film’s
