Zedd, 25, was the perfect gentleman to girlfriend Selena Gomez, 22, at the Vanity Fair after party on Feb. 22. He never left Sel’s side and he had her in stitches all night with his hilarious jokes, an eyewitness . No wonder Selena is so smitten!

Zedd: Selena Gomez Smiling & Laughing At Vanity Fair Party With Boyfriend

Selena is finally getting treated like the treasure that she truly is, and she’s loving every moment of it!
A source at the Vanity Fair party tells  EXCLUSIVELY, “Zedd may be a serious musician but he was like a big kid at the party. He’s playful and silly and was always making Selena laugh. He kept a smile on her face all night long. Zedd would whisper funny comments, making Selena burst out laughing.”

This year's Oscars unmasked Hollywood's most dubious views

Despite stirring support for the spirit of Selma, and big prizes for Hispanic film-makers, it was the unfortunate throwaway remarks which will linger longest after the 87th Academy Awards
 Sean Penn presented the best picture Oscar to director Alejandro González Iñárritu – but his joke about the winner’s green card fell flat.
The incident highlighted Oscar’s uneasy relationship with race, which was on full display throughout last night’s ceremony. Along with Tinseltown’s fraught relationship with American militarism, Penn bookended a politically awkward and often uncomfortable evening, which started with host Neil Patrick Harris making a joke about Hollywood celebrating its “best and whitest”. 
Four hours later, Penn reminded the world that white supremacy is never far away in America, and it’s at its most insidious and powerful when wielded by self-proclaimed Hollywood liberals – like Penn. 
Right before Birdman won, it seemed as if some of the racial tension I had anticipated going into the evening would be muted. Selma, the biopic of Martin Luther King, had been snubbed for its director Ava DuVernay and star David Oyelowo. But, it had won for Glory, its politically charged theme song (which beat out the vapid Everything Is Awesome) and gave John Legend the chance to say: “We live in the most incarcerated country in the world.” Legend then excoriated America for allowing incarceration to be more prevalent for black men now than slavery was in 1850. As Deray McKesson, one of the main organizers in Ferguson, tweeted: “@johnlegend tonight gave us a one-person protest. And I’m all for it.

Hollywood's Highest Paid Actresses

jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence
$26 million
Hollywood's new It girl walked away from 2012 with an Oscar for Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook and one of the top grossing movies of the year with The Hunger Games. Lawrence was paid under $1 million for the first Hunger Games movie but Lionsgate was happy to pay more to secure her for the second installment: Catching Fire. As Katniss, Lawrence has shown that action heroes don't always have to be played by men for a film to turn a profit.

Eddie Redmayne accepts the Best Actor in a Leading Role Award for The Theory of Everything onstage during the 87th Annual Academy Awards at Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California
 Here's Patrick Smith summing up: "Well, that was a massive upset. As much as I love the unhinged Birdman, which soars above the rest in terms of technical prowess, I was expecting the heartfelt Boyhood, shot in sequence across 12 years, and 39 filming days, to win both for Best Picture and Best Director. It would have been a fitting award for Linklater, a philosophical kind of film-maker whose movies always have a lovely, naturalistic feel to them. Dazed and Confused and the Before triptych, which he also directed, in particular, are gems. Thrilled for Grand Budapest Hotel, though, which won four awards. Julianne Moore, who’d been nominated four times in the past, was a welcome winner – her portrayal of a professor diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease is unflashy and poignant. Slightly disappointed to see Michael Keaton miss out for Birdman. As Riggan Thomson, an actor famous for once wearing a superhero's cape, now trying to reignite his career on Broadway, Keaton reaps the benefits of some smart meta casting; he flits between bravado and vulnerability with tremendous panache."
05.23 Since we're handing out props, here's a prop for Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu for a whole load of great speeches (I reckon he wrote one and freestyled the rest); and here's another prop for Benedict Cumberbatch for drinking out of a hip flask; and here's another prop for all of you who stayed up to watch the Oscars. It's only, like, Monday morning anyway, you've got a whole week in the office to recover.
05.18 We've all had (literally) a minute to consider this year's Oscars winners and losers, so props to Tim Robey for this astute insta-assessment.
 "A crazy awards trajectory for the crazy, ingenious, naggingly hollow Birdman, which just took four Oscars – more than anyone expected, certainly when it was first unveiled. Will it stand the test of time better than Boyhood, which took one sole award for Best Supporting Actress? Only time can divulge that. At the moment, it's hard not to feel a bit sorry for Richard Linklater, whose long-game ambitions haven't been very generously rewarded tonight."
05.11 Birdman in a nutshell. Key for the water cooler chat tomorrow.
OscarsAnd the winner of the Oscar for Best Film is BIRDMAN.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu receives the Best Film Oscar for Birdman
"Maybe next year there'll be some immigration rules to the Academy - two Mexicans in a row is suspicious," director Alejandro G Inarritu quipped as he collected the Best Picture prize, referencing Alfonso Cuaron's best director win last year.
05.04 And it's the biggest award of the lot.
Here are the nominations for BEST FILM

Winner of the Best Actress award Julianne Moore
Julianne Moore said: "I read somewhere that winning an Oscar can lead to you living five years longer - if that's true, I'd like to thank the Academy as my husband is younger than me!"
OscarsAnd the winner of the Oscar for Best Actress is JULIANNE MOORE.

"This Oscar belongs to all those people around the world battling ALS," he said. "It belongs to one exceptional family - Stephen, Jane and the Hawking children - and I will be its custodian and I will look after him; I'll polish him and wait on him hand and foot."
He also described his Oscar as "a new fella coming to join our apartment".

04.45 This is a bit of a shock. The winner for Best Director has not gone to Richard Linklater but...
Oscars...the winner of the Oscar for Best Director is ALEJANDRO GONZALEZ INARRITU (Birdman)
Alejandro G Inarritu, a surprise winner for Best Director, revealed that he’s he’s wearing Michael Keaton’s "tighy whities” in his acceptance speech. He also paid tribute to his fellow nominees. "For someone to win, someone has to lose - but true art, true individual expression cannot be compared. Our work, as always will be judged by time."

04.35 The awards are coming thick and fast now. The Oscar for Best Screenplay is handed to...
OscarsAnd the winner of the Oscar for Best Screenplay is THE IMITATION GAME.
Picking up his award, The Imitation Game's writer Graham Moore said: "Alan Turing never got to stand on a stage like this and look at these faces and I do - and that's the most unfair thing I've ever heard.
"So I want to use this moment to say this - when I was 16 I tried to kill himself because I felt like I didn't belong. Now I'm standing here, so I would like this moment to be for that person who feels weird or different. Stay weird and different and when you're up here, pass it along."
 Tim Robey"Imitation Game is a poor Adapted Screenplay choice. Whiplash should have got this. Graham Moore gave a sweet speech saying "Stay weird!", but the big problem with his script is that it's not nearly weird enough – it feels like the product of reading way too many screenwriting manuals. And it backs away from the really painful and private depths of Turing's story."
Here are the nominations for ADAPTED SCREENPLAY
Jason Hall (American Sniper)
Graham Moore (The Imitation Game)
Anthony McCarten (The Theory Of Everything)
Paul Thomas Anderson (Inherent Vice)
Damien Chazelle (Whiplash)
 "I thought Birdman would be too deranged for the Academy's tastes, but it's been rewarded here. The film, which taps into the psyche of a washed-up actor beset by hubris and insecurities, now has a real chance of beating Boyhood to Best Picture."
04.31 And the Oscar for Original Screenplay goes to...
OscarsAnd the winner of the Oscar for Original Screenplay isBIRDMAN.
Accepting the Oscar, Birdman director Alejandro G Inarritu thanked his fellow scriptwriters Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris, Jr and Armando Bo as he picked up the award for best original screenplay. "Three years ago, I invited them to follow me in a crazy idea - and because they are crazy, they did it." He also pays his dues to Michael Keaton, who “made this film fly”.
Here are the nominations for ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Nicolas Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris Jr, Armando Bo (Birdman)
Richard Linklater (Boyhood)
Foxcatcher (E. Max Frye and Dan Futterman and Bennett Miller Screenplay)

04.13 Oh Lord, help us. Lady Gaga is about to sing something from The Sound of Music. Standby for despairing commentary.
OscarsAnd the Oscar for Original Song goes to GLORY (SELMA)

 Patrick Smith on Glory: "Glory, written by John Stephens and Lonnie Lynn and performed by John Legend, was always a dead cert – it had already won at the Golden Globes and the Critic's Choice Awards. It'll also be considered something of a consolation prize for Selma, which is very, very unlikely to topple either Boyhood or Birdman in the Best Picture category."
04.05 John Travolta being very funny as he presents the Original Song Oscar after the Idina Menzel fiasco last year ("You do it," he says to Idina Menzel, as he opens the envelope).
Here are the nominations for ORIGINAL SONG
Everything is Awesome (The Lego Movie)
Glory (Selma)
Grateful (Beyond the Lights)
I'm not Gonna Miss You (Glenn Campbell: I’ll Be Me)
Lost Stars (Begin Again)
04.02 One of the Neil Patrick Harris’s best jokes tonight, this. “Benedict Cumberbatch is... the name you get when you ask John Travolta to pronounce ‘Ben Affleck’”, he says, referring to Travolta’s shocker last year when he mispronounced Idina Menzel's name.
04.00 John Legend and Common take to the stage now to perform the Oscar-nominated song Glory, which is from Selma.
03.59 Nick Allen reports from back stage:
 "More powerful stuff from Patricia Arquette back stage. She said: 'It's time for us, it's time tor women. Equal means equal. The highest percentage of children living in poverty are female headedhousehold.It'sincredible. We go round the world and talk about equal rights. But we don't have equal rights. When they wrote the Constitution they didn't intend it for us. So even though we feel we have equal rights in America there are huge issues under the surface.'"
03.57 Why was Joan Rivers, who appeared in dozens of films, snubbed in the In Memoriam section?

03.50 Just joining us? Firstly, where have you been? And secondly, this is what you've missed, courtesy of Patrick Smith.
 "So far, so predictable. JK Simmons and Patricia Arquette were shoo-ins from the moment the nominations were announced last month. Arquette, a richly deserving winner for Boyhood, a film as much a meditation on motherhood as it is a portrait of a young boy growing up, provided the night’s first impassioned political speech, calling for equal pay for women. Elsewhere, Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel, going into tonight with nine nominations, is faring well: three awards at this point. Birdman winning for Best Cinematography was always a likely outcome: spectacular to look at, the film is woven together so fastidiously it appears to unfold in one continuous take. It's the second consecutive Oscar for Emmanuel Lubezki, who won the same award for Gravity last year. Two wins for Gravity (for Best Sound Editing and Best Film Editing) are well deserved, too."-+66666666666666666666666666523+98

Oscar spotlight draws attention to industry diversity issue

 — It was a year ago that Lupita Nyong'o, shortly before winning the Academy Award for best supporting actress, gave a speech about what she called "dark beauty."

Nyong'o, who so dazzled Hollywood and the Oscar-viewing public through awards season, spoke tenderly of receiving a letter from a girl who had been about to lighten her skin before Nyong'o's success, she said, "saved me." The letter struck Nyong'o because she recognized herself in that girl: "I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful. I put on the TV and only saw pale skin."
"And so I hope that my presence on your screens and in the magazines may lead you, young girl, on a similar journey," concluded Nyong'o, accepting an award at the Black Women in Hollywood luncheon.
The Mexican-born, Kenyan-raised actress was a central part last year to an Academy Awards flush with faces uncommon to the Oscar podium. There was Ellen DeGeneres, a proud lesbian, hosting. There was the first Latino, Alfonso Cuaron, winning best director. There was the black filmmaker Steve McQueen hopping for joy after his "12 Years a Slave" won best picture.
What a difference a year makes.
This year's Oscars repeat a stubborn pattern that has plagued the Academy Awards throughout its history: Whenever change seems to come, a frustrating hangover follows. "Every 10 years, we have the same conversation," Spike Lee, a regular witness to the sporadic progress, has said. A year after Chris Rock hosted the 2005 awards show, which featured nods for Morgan Freeman, Don Cheadle, Jamie Foxx and Sophie Okonedo, the '06 nominees followed with only Terrence Howard.
Seldom have such fits and starts been starker than this Oscars, coming a year after a richly diverse Oscar crop. In Sunday's Academy Awards, all 20 acting nominees are white, a result that prompted some to declare that they would boycott this year's ceremony. The lack of nominations for "Selma" director Ava DuVernay and star David Oyelowo were a particular flashpoint, viewed by many as unjust oversights not only because they merited honoring, but because their absences furthered an ignoble Oscar history.
"I was surprised but then I wasn't," said Darnell Hunt, a UCLA professor and director of the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies, who co-authored a 2014 diversity report on the film and TV industries. "What we saw in terms of the nominations this year was business as usual. What we got was more or less an accurate reflection of the way the industry is structured and the way the academy is populated."
An Associated Press survey of the academy's voting history since the first Academy Awards in 1929 shows gradual progress but not nearly at a rate to match the ever-increasing diversity of the American public. In those 87 years, nine black actors have won Oscars, four Latinos and three Asians, a record that doesn't even speak to other categories like best director, where only one woman (Kathryn Bigelow) has won.
The number of non-whites to be nominated for best actor or best actress has nearly doubled in just the last two decades, but the 9.4 percent of non-white acting nominees over the academy's history is about four times less than the percentage of the non-white population.
Not all of this can be laid at the film academy's feet, but some of it can. The 6,000-plus membership of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences was found to be 94 percent white and 77 percent male in a 2012 Los Angeles Times investigation. Since becoming president of the academy, Cheryl Boone Isaacs has worked to diversify the academy's ranks, though change comes slowly considering membership is for life.
"In the last two years, we've made greater strides than we ever have in the past toward becoming a more diverse and inclusive organization through admitting new members and more inclusive classes of members," Isaacs told the AP shortly after nominations were announced. "And, personally, I would love to see and look forward to see a greater cultural diversity among all our nominees in all of our categories."
But the academy is a reflection of the film industry; it can only reward the films that get made. What this year's all-white acting nominees did was lay bare the enormous, hulking iceberg of the movie business' diversity problems.
The UCLA diversity report released last year after eight years of research put numbers to an often amorphous issue. It was arguably the most comprehensive such study, and it found the underrepresentation of minorities and women throughout film and TV, from board rooms to talent agencies.
"White males have dominated things for so long that it's been hard to image an alternative that would produce or be open to producing the types of projects that are likely to enlist more people of color or women. So it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, this vicious cycle that produces the same type of stuff over and over again.," says Hunt. "It's hard to blame any single institution. It's not all the networks. It's not all the studios. It's not all the talent agencies. But together, the way they all do business, combines to create this stalemate where we just don't get past where we are right now."
What's particularly galling for many of those working to change Hollywood is that minorities are among its most passionate customers. According to the Motion Picture Association of America, Hispanics made up 25 percent of moviegoers in 2013, considerably more than their 17 percent share of the population.
"They acknowledge the demographic. They understand our participation rate. They continue to market these projects to the community, but never with the community's identity or building a base of A-lister talent," says Felix Sanchez, president of the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts.
Sanchez has seen "busts of diversity" come and go, like the attention that came and went with Ricky Martin's 1999 Grammy performance. But even though the film industry sits in a town rich in Hispanics, 150 miles from the Mexico border, whites are often cast in top Latino roles. Ben Affleck played Tony Mendez in "Argo" and, more recently, the casting of Catherine Zeta-Jones as a Colombian drug dealer drew criticism.
"Who's in charge of that image making?" says Sanchez. "So much of it is left in the hands of people who don't have any kind of commitment to authenticity to the community at large."
Combating such an entrenched, systematic problem isn't easy; prejudice is nowhere and everywhere at the same time.
"There's no front door to knock on. There's nothing but side doors," says Sanchez. "At some point, either there's change or there's a revolt amongst the viewers of simply not participating with entertainment that's not reflective or inclusive of Latino images in a contemporary way."
Hunt hopes that by studying diversity objectively, the data will reveal "the bottlenecks" that are stifling advancement. That includes findings that show more diverse projects make more money at the box office and earn better TV ratings. He knows the one thing Hollywood will respond to: the bottom line.
But frustration is mounting. Another year's worth of research, to be released later this month by UCLA, Hunt says shows no significant change.
Stacy L. Smith, founder and director of USC Annenberg's Media, Diversity and Social Change Initiative, calls the lack of progress in the industry "egregious." The school analyzed the 500 top-grossing films at the U.S. box office in recent years, finding that in 2013, African-Americans represented 10.8 percent of all speaking characters, Hispanics 4.2 percent and Asians 5 percent. Between 2007 and 2012, the 565 directors of the top 500 films included only 33 black filmmakers, and just two of them black women. In the top-100 grossing films each year from 2002 through 2012, only 4.4 percent had women directors.
"Hollywood does not think diversity is commercial," Smith said. "The numbers speak loudly and clearly about who is valued and who isn't."
With studies finding so little progress, Smith proposes the industry adopt a modified version of the NFL's Rooney Rule, which stipulates that teams must interview minorities for vacant coaching jobs, to give greater transparency to the hiring process. She also urges A-list stars to add a rider in their contracts asking for diversity in casts when sensible to the story.
Not everyone agrees. Lionel Chetwynd, an Oscar-nominated writer and an academy member, argued against Al Sharpton's post-nominations call for a task force. (Said Sharpton: "The movie industry is like the Rocky Mountains, the higher you get, the whiter it gets.")
"Enforced 'diversity' will undermine the very mission of AMPAS," Chetwynd wrote in an Op-Ed. "As new filmmakers and craftspeople achieve new levels of excellence, the face of the academy will change as it should, to the meter of its time, the pace of its art."
The one thing that is definitely improving is the volume level. The uproar over the Oscar nominations only added to a swelling cacophony in the last year.
"Saturday Night Live" was shamed into diversifying its cast. The Ridley Scott Moses epic "Exodus: Gods and Kings" was slammed for casting white leads as Egyptians. The leaked Sony emails embarrassed executives for jokes about President Obama's presumed taste in movie. Chris Rock, as good a commentator on race relations as we have, penned a thoughtful essay on what he called "a white industry."
"How many black men have you met working in Hollywood? They don't really hire black men," wrote Rock. "But forget whether Hollywood is black enough. A better question is: Is Hollywood Mexican enough? You're in L.A, you've got to try not to hire Mexicans."
Why does all this matter? It isn't just an issue of equal opportunity, though it is that. It's because when people aren't reflected in culture, when they don't see themselves on screens, behind cameras or on the Oscar stage, they feel invisible and voiceless. Hollywood would do well to remember that young girl who wrote to Nyong'o, and hope to inspire a flood of such letters.

2015 Oscar Predictions: And The Oscar Goes To...
Award season is in full swing, and my predictions of winners is complete. Award season is my favorite season for three reasons. First, I love seeing what all the stars are wearing on the red carpet and always giving my own opinions. Second, having viewing parties with my friends always makes for a good time and making my friends listen to all my opinions is so much better than talking to my TV.Make sure you have your winners predicted and have a red carpet worthy viewing party of your own on February 22nd.Third, once the nominations are out I head to the movie theater and make to sure to watch all the nominated movies. I’m no expert but I take award season very seriously, and there is no possible way to make informed decisions with out seeing these movies (even though hoping the best looking male or the best dressed female wins is a totally valid reason to want someone to win). I have my winners predicted, and lucky for everyone, I’m willing to share my Oscar predictions. I’ve included the 10  enjoy the most. It’s always exciting to see if the new comer takes one home, or if your all time favorite actor or actress gets snubbed once again (one day Leo, one day). Make sure you have your winners predicted and have a red carpet worthy viewing party of your own on February 22nd.

Bollywood Actress Mamta Kulkarni embraces Islam

Bollywood Actress Mamta Kulkarni embraces Islam

Former beautiful and sizzling Indian actress Mamta Kulkarni has accepted Islam as best religion. She converted to Islam recently and is living with her husband ‘Vicky Goswami’, who has already converted to Islam. Mamta Kulkarni got married on 10th May, 2013 and is living in Nairobi, Kenya with her husband.
In this modern age, the non-Muslims are converting to Islam considering it the best religion in the world. The Indian Bollywood Actress, who got fame due to her movie ‘Ghatak’ has converted to Islam. Mamta Kulkarni’s husband Vicky Goswami was arrested by the UAE police in 1997 in drug smuggling case. Vicky Goswami was sentenced 25 years in jail, but released in November 2012. His conversion to Islam was the main reason of major reduction in his punishment.
Mamta Kulkarni got married with Goswami, when he was in jail. She was managing her husband’s hotel business outside during his punishment. She was in a relationship with Goswami, and their relation has turned into a long lasting relation, as the couple has got married.
In 90′s Mamta Kulkarni came up as a hot and bold actress of Indian film industry. Her bold and hot pictures were published in several magazines and fashion tabloids. She worked in Bollywood movies for almost 11 years, and after that she left the showbiz and Indian film industry i.e. Bollywood. She has rejected a lot of film offers from several directors and producers. She has also received many offers from the dance programs and reality shows, but she has decided to keep herself out of this business.

`Roy` review: Even Ranbir Kapoor cannot save the film, boring and confusing!

`Roy` review: Even Ranbir Kapoor cannot save the film, boring and confusing!

`Roy` which was supposed to be Ranbir's comeback after the disastrous 'Besharam' in 2013 is more of a let down. 
While the posters and trailers of `Roy` looked quite promising and it was supposed to be a heist drama, it turned out to be a journey of self-discovery and ultimately an emotional hotch-potch.
Director Vikramjit Singh's film fails to have smooth transitions between the different stories he narrates in the movie. The film begins with Kabir Grewal played by Arjun Rampal, a filmmaker who creates a world of deceit and chase with his dark and designed story of `Roy`. During the shooting of his film in Malaysia, he meets Ayesha another filmmaker from London, played by Jacqueline Fernandez.
Under puffed eyes, unkempt look and a hat – Kabir has more shades of grey in his character than it appears.

Hunger Games' tops US box office with $123 million opening

LOS ANGELES: “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1″ tallied $123 million in ticket sales to top weekend box office charts and score the year’s biggest US opening, according to studio estimates.
The third installment of the blockbuster “Hunger Games” action movie series starring Jennifer Lawrence added a further $152 million at overseas box offices for a global opening weekend tally of $275 million, tracking firm Rentrak said.
“Mockingjay” took in $17 million on Thursday night’s showings for the year’s best Thursday total, but the film fell short of industry forecasts for about $148 million through Sunday.
“This weekend will wind up down versus the same frame a year ago, when the previous ‘Hunger Games’ installment ‘Catching Fire’ led” with $158.1 million,” noted Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at tracking firm Rentrak.
The first “Hunger Games” took in $152.5 million on its opening weekend in 2012, according to Boxofficemojo.
Walt Disney’s animated action film “Big Hero 6″ was second, with ticket sales of $20.1 million for the three days from Friday through Sunday, pushing its three-week total to $135.7 million.
Director Christopher Nolan’s space adventure “Interstellar” was third with $15.1 million at US and Canadian box offices. It has taken in $120.6 million since opening on Nov 5.
In “Mockingjay,” Lawrence plays Katniss Everdeen, the defiant young archer who becomes the face of a mass rebellion in a dystopian post-apocalyptic society.
Lionsgate, the studio behind “The Hunger Games” series, split author Suzanne Collins’ final book in her science fiction trilogy into two movies, with the next set for release in 2015.
The latest chapter received “fresh” ratings from two-thirds of reviewers in aggregator site Rottentomatoes, while audiences gave the film an A-minus rating, according to CinemaScore.
Last weekend’s top movie “Dumb and Dumber To” fell to fourth with $13.8 million in ticket sales. Director David Fincher’s hit “Gone Girl” took in $2.8 million to round out the top five.
“Interstellar” was released by Paramount Pictures, a unit of Viacom. Universal Pictures, a unit of Comcast, distributed “Dumb and Dumber To”.

There is still hope, ladies: Ranbir Kapoor is not engaged to Katrina

Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor is an extremely private person. He does not like to talk about his personal life, especially about his relationship with starlet Katrina Kaif. However, after his relationship with her has been under heavy media scrutiny, Ranbir has finally opened up to the Bombay Times, in an exclusive interview, reports The Times of India.
When asked if he is engaged to Katrina, Ranbir said: “No, I am not. Engagement is to tell the world that right now we are promised to get married. I have not reached that place in my life.”
“I really wished that tabloids, magazines and news channels stop making conjectures about that as it spoils the spontaneity of it when it finally happens,” he added.
Ranbir said that when he does get engaged, he won’t hide it from the media.
“If I have to get engaged, I can’t hide that. I want to have a family, have children. So, when I get engaged, I will certainly announce it,” he said.
Further, Ranbir also shared that he might be venturing into writing for movies. He said that directors Ayan Mukherjee and Imtiaz Ali encouraged him to do so.
“Katrina told me that I don’t have an imaginative mind. And that challenged me and hurt me. I decided to come up with a story and prove her wrong. Imtiaz has told me to think and write just a scene a day and that’s what I am right now doing,” Ranbir said.
Hotshot director Rajkumar Hirani has approached the 32-year-old to play Sanjay Dutt in Hirani’s biopic. However, Ranbir affirmed that nothing is confirmed yet.
“Playing Sanjay Dutt will be exciting for me; Mr. Hirani has not confirmed that to me yet. Raju Hirani is not a director who you can keep calling and asking, if that film is happening or not,” Ranbir said.
Ranbir will next be seen in the Vikramjit Singh directed Roy alongside Arjun Rampal and Jacqueline Fernandez. The film is slated for a February 13 release.
