‘Can pull off western outfits’
Gautami Kapoor is the wife of telly actor Ram Kapur.
Gautami Gadgil is eager to act again. While we have usually seen her in saris, she claims that she can pull off western clothes with equal ease. “In my next film, Shaadi Ke Side Effects, I play Ram’s (Kapoor, husband) wife again. And I am wearing
western clothes. They are a pleasant change,” she says.
Gautami, who has also cut her hair short for the role, is loving her new look. “It’s a small role, minus any melodrama or maternal tones,” she adds. The actor also has another film in the pipeline, but will talk about it only once it is finalised. “It’s a small film with a fantastic subject. I am open to more work, now that my kids are old enough,” she says. Though she’s getting offers for films, she
“wouldn’t mind doing a good TV show.”
Kavita’s item song
Kavita Kaushik, who quit her hit serial FIR for a lead role in Tota Weds Maina, which got low TRPs and was pulled off air, claims that she has got numerous film offers. She will be seen doing an item number in Apoorva Lakhia’s Zanjeer 2.0. She says, “Ever since FIR became a hit, I have had filmmakers offer me films, but playing the lead in a daily meant that I never had time.” Kavita says directors like Tigmanshu Dhulia and a few others are good friends and now that she has time on her hands, she just might take them up on their offers.
Mother’s day special
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, TV stars Gurmeet Choudhary, Mouni Roy, Karan Tacker, Ravi Dubey, Sayantani Ghosh among others, will celebrate their bonds with their moms with a special TV programme. Star Plus will air a Mother’s Day special called Meri Maa next month. Devoleena Bhattacharjee and Mohammad Nazim too will shoot with their moms, while Neelu Waghela will shoot with her son. The kids will gift their mothers while sharing experiences of their growing up years.
