Gossip Guy episode 8: Shahid Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut and Vikramaditya Motwane on Rangoon, Trapped
The latest episode of Gossip Guy features Rangoon actors Kangana Ranaut and Shahid Kapoor, along with a tête-à-tête with filmmaker Vikramaditya Motwane who is gearing up for the release of Trapped, his first directorial in four year, the last one being Lootera back in 2013.
Kapoor is candid at his best as he discusses his love for fitness and the pressure on an actor to put his film out there during promotion. Flaunting a muscular look, he shares how he has always been fascinated towards fitness and working out, long before he even joined the Hindi film industry.
However, he does confess to pulling off a pleasant exterior, even though he is exhausted, in order to promote his films. He points out that the audience does not know that the actor has already given 15 interviews throughout the day and is thoroughly exhausted. Therefore, it is important to flash a smile every time and give their best to their fans in every interview and talk about their film from the scratch.
"My expression is not reflective of my mood. I'm an actor, " Shahid sums it up, grinning.
His Rangoon co-star Kangana speaks her heart out in a freewheeling conversation with the host Renil Abrahim. She talks about how she is more celebrated as she is a self-made outsider and that her fearless approach towards life is probably what made her the first choice of Vishal Bhardwaj while casting for the character of Jaanbaaz Julia in Rangoon. She also touches upon how her state of mind was while dealing with the ugly legal battle with Hrithik Roshan last year.
Also, Vikramaditya, who seems to have cast a firm grip on the audience with the trailer of Trapped, discusses the creative process of film making and how his head space is as he returns to direction after years.
