Chirovici’s novel, The Book of Mirrors. —IANS TRIBUNE Life The 25-year fixation Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio has been seen going out with another woman before news of his split from Camila Morrone surfaced online. In July, the Titanic actor was spotted partying with a 22-year-old Russian model, identified as Maria Beregova. In July, the 47-year-old actor, who reportedly prefers to date under 25-year-old women, was caught having fun with Maria during a yacht party in St. Tropez. Reportedly, Maria jetted off to the south of France after splitting with her 30year-old husband, Ahmed Masoud Abdelhafid. Maria and Leonardo then were spotted boarding a luxury yacht together. According to a report, there’s no more Leonardo and Morrone. The Wolf of Wall Street actor and the 25-year-old model reportedly started dating in 2017. While they were notoriously private about their romance, a source said that the pair were “pretty serious” about each other. Since the breakup reports circulated online, the actor has been hit with criticism, with many pointing out that they predicted the actor would end his relationship with Morrone due to her age. “There’s no phenomenon on this planet more reliable than Leonardo Dicaprio breaking up with his girl by age 25, the stats are breathtaking,” one person tweeted. Another wrote, “I need to know how Leonardo Dicaprio conducts these breakups. Does he start picking fights months before they turn 25 to be less conspicuous?” —IANS CHANDIGARH | FRIDAY | 2 SEPTEMBER 2022 Looking at the bigger picture Priti Sapru is hoping that Teri Meri Gal Ban Gayi will help her reconnect with the Punjabi audience Sheetal O NE cannot get enough of Punjabi rom-coms and the makers are not disappointing the fans.

It will also be Akhil’s debut film. Priti Sapru has written the script, directed and produced the film besides acting opposite Guggu Gill. She says, “The movie will help me reconnect to my Punjabi audience, which was a major factor in my decision to return. I hope this family drama and the endearing storyline will appeal to the audience.” Produced under her banner Sai Sapru Creations in association with Zee Studios, it will release on September 9. The film’s songs are out. Gulab and Jodi are sung by Akhil while for Mundri, Master Saleem and Gurlez Akhtar lent their voice. The songs are written by Maninder Kailey, Babu Singh Maan, and Veet Baljeet while Jatinder Shah has composed the music. About his debut project Akhil says, “There couldn’t have been a better debut. It took a lot of time to prepare myself before taking this plunge. My parents have been asking me, ‘hor fer acting karni e’ ever since my songs became popular. I wanted to wait and listen to my heart’s calling and be ready when it actually happened. Before Teri Meri Gal Ban Gayi also I got many offers but nothing clicked.” The actor calls the film a learning experience and says that working with an experienced cast has made him realise how tough it is to be a good actor. Akhil hopes that just like his songs, the audience will appreciate his film as well. But one thing he is sure of—hit or flop, he will not let it affect his sanity. He adds, “I think rather than living with regrets, it’s good to try out everything. And had I not tried acting, I would have regretted it later for sure. We had shot the film before the pandemic. We were worried whether the songs would click with the audience since we all grew in the past few years and so did our taste in music. But thankfully, they all make sense and are well received by the listeners.” The supporting cast includes Guggu Gill, Nirmal Rishi, Harby Sangha, Karamjit Anmol, and Puneet Issar. Rubina says, “The film has all the ingredients of a family drama. It lacks nothing in terms of emotions, which is the nicest thing about it.

The teaser of R Balki’s Chup featuring Sunny Deol, Dulquer Salmaan and Pooja Bhatt has already built huge anticipation around the film. Talking about the film, R Balki says, “Chup is special for more than one reason. For me the biggest reason is it marks the official debut of Amitabh Bachchan as a music composer. Amitji saw Chup and played an instinctive original melody on his piano as he relived the film. It was his way of expressing his feelings for the film, paying a tribute. This composition, his gift to the film, will be the end title track of Chup. I don’t think there can be an artiste whose sensitivity can beat Bachchan’s and Chup has his touch.” Game for it Aparshakti Khurana will host Ultimate Kho Kho 2022.
