Following news of actor Vindu Dara Singh’s association in the recent spot-fixing scandal of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Deepika says it is sad how because of a few people, several others come in the ambit of doubt.
“It gives a bad name to the sport. It is unfair just because of a few people following this malpractice, you start doubting everybody else. As a country if you want to shine or if you want to be on the same level economically or otherwise (with others), I think it’s important that sports people in our country do really well and this (spot-fixing) is not really helping that,” Deepika told reporters at an event.
“The toughest part was crisis-management. Production, of course, is a thankless job,” she said at a promotional event of the film.
“What happens is that everybody’s problem is your problem. As an actor, you are used to isolating yourself. When you are on set, you just focus on your role and the rest doesn’t matter,” she added.
Karishma, who is 5 feet 8 inches tall is just only few inches shorter than Vivek, who is 5 feet 10 inches. With high heels, Karishma looked much taller! So, director Indra Kumar and producer Ashok Thakeria ensured she wore flats throughout her scenes with him.
“We had to ban Karishma from wearing heels as she ended up looking taller than everyone, including her own co-star Vivek! Induji and Ashok Thakeriaji convinced her to get styled with flat shoes instead and she very sportingly agreed with a smile,” said a source.
“Grand Masti” is a sequel to 2004 movie “Masti”. It also stars Riteish Deshmukh and Aftab Shivdasani in lead roles.

Actress Shruti Haasan, daughter of legendary actor Kamal Haasan and actress Sarika, always wanted to be in showbiz, but was skeptical about facing the camera because she didn’t find herself attractive enough to be a heroine.
“I always wanted to become actress, but I always thought I am too ugly to be an actress. I was always in the sport, in the sun and always running around. I always thought heroines are so beautiful how will I be that beautiful? But I always wanted to be in the entertainment business. I always wanted to act, sing and be a part of it,” said Shruti who also sings.
The 27-year-old, who made her debut with Hindi movie “Luck”, will have two releases on June 19 – “D-Day” and “Ramaiya Vasta Vaiya”.
His first film did well and he should have his plate full with new assignments, but Varun Dhawan begs to differ. He wants to stick to one film policy and for the time being he would also like to stay single.
“I am doing a film, energies are focused there. I am a firm believer in doing just one film at a time. I am new and should concentrate,” Varun told IANS.
After debuting with “Student Of The Year” (SOTY), which did fairly good business at the box office, the youngster will be next seen in his father David Dhawan’s “Main Tera Hero”.
Leading actor and Punjab XI’s co-owner Preity Zinta is shaken by the spot-fixing scandal to hit the Indian Premier League (IPL) and says if the charges of spot-fixing are true, it would be bad for the game.
Rajasthan Royals’ three cricketers, including India fast bowler Sreesanth, who had also played for Preity’s Kings XI Punjab IPL team, had been arrested last week for spot-fixing.
She said: “Look, I’d still like to give the accused the benefit of the doubt. But if the allegations are true, then it’s really really sad for the country, for the game and for the IPL.”
Ayan Mukerji-directed “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” has brought the real life ex-couple together on the screen after five years – their first and the last film together was 2008 movie “Bachna Ae Haseeno”.
“I always expected from Deepika to reach very high levels, but I had no idea that she will become such a fine actress so soon. She is the first actress in front of whom I am a bit intimidated,” said Ranbir, who himself has wowed people with variety in roles he played in films “Wake Up Sid”, “Raajneeti”, “Rockstar” and “Barfi!”.
Alongside ex Ranbir Kapoor the pair promoted their upcoming film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani at an event held to announce the film’s association with CloseUp toothpaste
