LUDHIANA | SUNDAY | 24 SEPTEMBER 2023 THE PUNCHLINE ‘Once in a lifetime’ Rakul Preet talks about her film Ayalaan Rakul Preet Singh, who was recently seen in the Nikhil Mahajan-directorial I Love You, has spoken about her upcoming sci-fi Tamil film Ayalaan, which she went on to call a ‘once in a lifetime experience’. Ayalaan, which is directed by Tamil filmmaker R Ravi Kumar is a sci-fi-extraterrestrial-comedy film, which employs a great deal of VFX and high-quality CGI. While using CGI in Indian films is nothing new, having a movie with more than 4,500 CGI shots is a new one. Talking about the film, the actress said, “Oh, it was an once-in-a-lifetime experience. Because there is an extra-terrestrial element in the picture, and you know there isn’t one when you’re shooting, but you’re assuming there is. You must shoot it in such a way that people believe the film has an actual alien.” “You’re reacting to a prop, you’re reacting to nothing, and you have to do it convincingly. You must learn to stay on your mark and not deviate since they will use CGI to fill in the gaps around you. So that was a truly unique experience for me, and I enjoyed it.” Ayalaan is creating quite a buzz for its compelling storyline and the groundbreaking use of CGI. — IANS As Bollywood is back with action movies, celebs tell us what excites them about this genre — car chases, hand-tohand combats or blood and gore superb visuals.

According to rumours, the actress has no plans to reprise her titular role in the potential Barbie 2. According to a report, the twotime Oscar nominee is more than happy to let her co-star Ryan Gosling take the centerstage in the supposed new film focusing on his lovelorn character since it’s very unlikely to build another movie around her character. “Everybody at Over & out the studio is talking about making a Ken movie, while the idea of building another movie around Margot as Barbie is pretty much off the table,” a so-called insider tells the outlet. The actress has allegedly come to terms with this as the source adds: “For Margot, it’s all about the story.” “The Barbie movie ended with Margot’s Barbie becoming a real woman,” the source explains. “A follow-up to that journey isn’t needed. There’s plenty of room for Ryan to do a full-blown Ken movie, which Margot will be involved with behind the scenes.” The insider adds that Greta Gerwig, who directed the comedy from a screenplay she wrote with her husband Noah Baumbach, purposely didn’t build the film’s universe around just one Barbie. While Robbie doesn’t expect to come back for the sequel, Warner Bros. bosses may still offer a mint to her in an attempt to lure her back. Back in June, Robbie talked about the possibility of Barbie sequels. “I think you fall into a bit of a trap if you try and set up a first movie whilst also planning for sequels,” she said of making the first film. — IANS
