However, now she has become very cautious about choosing her projects. “I have spent the initial eight-ten years of my career with insecurity. I have worked for money initially, but today I choose my projects cautiously. If the story excites me, I take up the role only then. I have realised if you will do good work with hundred per cent dedication, automatically more and more good work will come your way,” she said.

Amidst the serious drama, there is quirkiness in the show and that’s what excited me the most.” — IANS Cinematic excellence Big B’s memorabilia up for auction Ahead of the 81st birthday of veteran Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, several of his memorabilia are up for auction in Mumbai.

Shakira is proud to hail from Colombia Notes of success Pop icon Shakira has become a global representative of Colombia. The Hips Don’t Lie singer said she was proud to hail from the Latin American country. Shakira was honoured by Spotify on September 29, as the platform declared that Friday as ‘Shakira Day’, and she was even announced as the ‘Equal Global Ambassador’ for September. “The role that my fans have played in my career is impossible to quantify. They’ve known how to understand me better than anybody, and they’ve carried me to where I am today with their unwavering support,” Shakira, 46, said. The singer added: “The way Colombia has served as inspiration for my career as an artiste is immeasurable. Colombia is a never-ending source of inspiration: for colours, culture, sounds, stories, folklore and food. It’s such a rich culture and I’m so grateful to have been raised where I was.” Reflecting back on her very long career, Shakira has managed to stand the test of time and unlike many pop artistes who came alongside her, she did not fade away into obscurity, but rather is still as popular as she used to be in the 2000s. Looking back at her legacy as well as the predominantly patriarchal system of the music industry in Colombia, the She Wolf singer said: “I’m proud to represent women who come from my country in a male-dominated industry. I am a proud Colombian and will continue to be that.” — IANS c m y b RANVEER IS DON: Don 3 Aarya THIRD SEASONS OF WEB SERIES Mirzapur The Family Man She Delhi Crime Panchayat Aarya Prime Video Prime Video Netflix Netflix Prime Video Disney+Hotstar October, 2023 Late 2023 or 2024 Late 2023 To Be Announced Late 2023 or 2024 Late 2023 The makers of Don and Don 2 in August announced that Ranveer Singh would be the lead actor in Don 3, after Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan were seen in the earlier versions.
