Aamir Khan will be seen playing a father in his next film ‘Dangal’, and while he has been prepping for the role, the casting team is having a tough time auditioning girls who can play the role of his daughters. To date, the team has scouted and auditioned more than 21,000 girls! Clearly, finding the right actors to match up to Aamir’s talent isn’t proving to be an easy task, and the gupshup is that director Nitesh Tiwari does not want to cast anyone from the industry. So the casting continues….Let’s hope the team gets the right girls for Mr Perfectionist Aamir.

But with they match each other’s talent, or will one outperform the other? Lets wait and see!
Ranbir-Kat’s date night
With the media abuzz with news of a 2015 wedding for Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, the couple are in no mood to slow down. The two were recently spotted zooming away on a late night drive in Ranbir’s fancy new sedan. Apparently, Ranbir and Katrina had rolled down the windows with blaring music as they whizzed past a secluded Lokhandwala backroad in Mumbai. A source reports that Ranbir was driving super fast, and they both appeared to be in a very happy, carefree mood. We hope that letting their hair down before a big release like Ranbir’s ‘Bombay Velvet’and a much-awaited Cannesappearance for Katrina helps drive away the butterflies.

Chopra girl chat
Parineeti Chopra, who has taken a break from films post ‘Kill Dil’ and is waiting for the right script to come her way, might be back on the big screen with a movie produced by none other than her cousin, Priyanka Chopra. A source says, “Pari has been asked to go through a few scripts. If she likes something, Priyanka is willing to produce the film for her.” The young actress is said to be seeking regular advice from PeeCee in relation to her career — and also in case of the new house she recently bought in Bandra. Parineeti started her career with ‘Ladies vs Ricky Bahl’ and has done five more films post that. The source adds, “Pari has been attending a lot of script narrations and is also working her fitness now.” So what’s next from the PC duo? Something special, we hope!
