Actor Kit Harington, who played Jon Snow on the hit HBO show Game of Thrones has sparked rumours of his characters' return after he was seen sporting Jon Snow's iconic locks at Wimbledon.

    Back in January, Harington -- who had revealed that he is contractually obligated to keep his hair long for the duration of the show -- appeared, with shorter hair at the premiere of his movie Testament of Youth. The fact that he has now grown his hair back has sparked speculation that he will reprise his role as Jon on the fantasy drama series, reports

    Jon was last seen bleeding out after he was betrayed and stabbed in the fifth season finale.

    Addressing his character's fate on the show, Harington said in June: "I'm quite dead. It's over for Jon Snow - at the very least, he gets to join his family and kin and leave this terrible world behind."

    However, his co-star Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen, believes there is a chance that Jon would return to the upcoming season six.

    "There are some helpful people there, who could bring Jon back to life. If I had to bet, I would say it's a 50/50 chance," she said in an interview.

She wowed audiences with her graceful moves in Maar Daala (Devdas; 2002). And now, after over a decade, Madhuri Dixit will be seen in a similar avatar in director Abhishek Chaubey’s Dedh Ishqiya. The actor will perform mujra to a song titled Apne Karar Mein, which has been composed by Vishal Bhardwaj, who is also co-producing the film with Shemaroo Entertainment.

“The song is ready and we will be shooting for it after we’re done filming the entire movie. I can’t reveal much but I’ll say that it is a very elaborate number which will be shot on a big set,” says producer Ketan Maru. In the film, Madhuri plays Begum Para of Lucknow and has been paired opposite Naseeruddin Shah.

Ask Madhuri about her role in the film and she says, “Mine is a two-layered character. She (the begum) looks very happy on the surface but has her secret desires and cravings,” says Madhuri. Currently, the makers are wrapping up the last leg of the film’s shoot. “We have around 11 days of shooting left, out of which we will shoot for four days in Karjat,” says Maru.

Dedh Ishqiya is the sequel to Ishqiya (2010), which featured Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi and Vidya Balan.

People still call me Mohini
Immortalised as the dancing diva with the success of her hit song Ek Do Teen (Tezaab;1988) which went on to acquire cult status, Madhuri Dixit reminisces how that one number changed her life.

“I got recognition with that song. After it came out, people would stop and ask me for autographs,” remembers Madhuri. The actor goes on to say how her character in the film (that completes 25 years in 2013) is still etched on to people’s memories. “People remember the film and still call me Mohini,” she says.
