Amitabh Bachchan a complete package: Sudesh Bhosle (Movie Snippets)

Mumbai, Dec 14 (IANS) Singer Sudesh Bhonsle, who has sung songs like “Jumma chumma” and “Shava shava” picturised on Amitabh Bachchan, says the megastar is a complete package.

“Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) is a complete package which can rarely be seen in any personality — be it acting, music or knowledge. He does everything with full dedication and perfection. He is not only an actor, he is a good singer also,” Bhosle said.

The singer has been presenting an ode to the thespian through “Amitabh Aur Main”, a musical tour wherein he sings Big B’s hit songs and dialogues, accompanied by his 21-year-old son Siddhant.

Commenting on the recent trend where actors are crooning for their own films, the veteran singer said: “A song becomes more popular and sells most when actors lend voice in the song. It is a trend now… Ultimately, producers have to make money. So it’s good for them. But I feel music should be advocated by the musicians only.”

Arjun Kapoor surprised by Alia’s kissing skill

Actor Arjun Kapoor says his “2 States” co-star actress Alia Bhatt is the best kisser on screen.

In an episode of actress Neha Dhupia’s audio chat show “#NoFilterNeha” on music application Saavn, Arjun spoke about a variety of things — about his best friend in B-Town Ranveer Singh to talking about his uncle Anil Kapoor, read a statement.

When asked who would he choose as the best kisser on screen from actresses Parineeti Chopra, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt, Arjun replied: “Alia Bhatt!”

When Neha Dhupia probed further, he said: “Let me put it this way, I was pleasantly surprised. You know sometimes you feel, it could be awkward with a person.”

The 31-year-old star says he had a “slight pre-conceived notion that she might be awkward”.

“Because we didn’t know each other when we started filming at all. And in the first 10 days, we had the scene in the dorm where we make out with each other which is under the shower and all. So I thought it might be awkward to get it right,” he added.

On the acting front, Arjun is gearing up for his upcoming film “Half Girlfriend”, helmed by Mohit Suri. The film also stars Shraddha Kapoor.

Alia, who was last seen on screen in Gauri Shinde’s “Dear Zindagi” starring superstar Shah Rukh Khan, will next be seen in “Badrinath Ki Dulhania” with actor Varun Dhawan.
