As fans wait for the release of Atlee’s Jawan, starring superstar Shah Rukh Khan, the makers released a vibrant music video of the film’s first track, ‘Zinda Banda.’ The song has been released in Tamil and Telugu languages as well. The music video opens with SRK’s electrifying entry, greeted with cheers from a group of women. The actor showcases his dance moves, alongside co-stars Sanya Malhotra and Priyamani. The song also marks the reunion of SRK and Priyamani, who were last seen dancing together in the famous soundtrack ‘Get On The Dance Floor’ from the film Chennai Express. ‘Zinda Banda’ is composed by acclaimed composer-singer Anirudh Ravichander, who makes his Bollywood debut with Jawan.


Meanwhile, actor Fatima Sana Shaikh opened up about her favourite Bollywood actors. In a chat with Humans of Cinema, Fatima shared, “I am an SRK fan, but I feel Aamir Khan has given us a lot of films like Rang De Basanti and PK. All his films are so different.” Aamir Khan and Fatima Sana Shaikh have been linked for years since working together in their film Dangal. But they have continued to deny the rumours surrounding them. Fatima will next be seen in Meghana Gulzar’s Sam Bahadur. Vicky Kaushal will play Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw in the upcoming film. Talking about Vicky, she shared – ” Vicky is outstanding. I can’t tell you how good an actor he is.”

Saif was last seen in Adipurush while Sara had a box office hit with the romantic comedy-drama Zara Hatke Zara Bachke, co-starring Vicky Kaushal.


Actor-dancer Nora Fatehi, who rose to fame with the song, Dilbar in 2018 opened up about being in the industry. As a newcomer in the industry then, Nora said that she ignored a lot of advice and also revealed how she refused to date specific actors for publicity. In an interview with Zoom Entertainment, Nora said, “I was constantly told, I should date specific people and date an actor for PR.’ I never listened to any of that, and I’m so glad because now I make the rules. I work on my terms, and my success is not because of another person. It’s on my own, and everyone else is just a plus. So I’m very proud of that.”


Lastly, actor Sushmita Sen suffered a massive heart attack earlier this year. She was shooting for Aarya 3 when she had to undergo an angioplasty and had a stent placed in her heart. Now, in an interview, Sushmita shared that she feels ‘lucky’ to be on the other side. Sushmita told News18 – “It doesn’t make me fearful now, instead I now have a feeling of promise, of something to look forward to. When you get a new lease on life, you respect it and are more careful.” Apart from Aarya 3, the actor next has Taali in the pipeline. The JioCinema original is based on the life of the transgender activist Shreegauri Sawant.
