Pulkit Samrat’s lucky charm saga

The thread that ties “Fukrey” and “Sanam Re” together is the presence of a horse. Instead of terming that as a lucky sign, actor Pulkit Samrat credits viewers for embracing and making the characters popular.

Pulkit was seen riding a horse in “Fukrey”, and then his horse sequence from “Sanam Re” was one of the most relateable visuals from the film. Both the films earned a positive response.

“It was an impromptu discovery. It was something that was brought to my attention. All I can say is that both my characters have been loved and embraced by the viewers,” Pulkit said in a statement.

After getting a good start this year with “Sanam Re”, Pulkit will next be seen in the romantic film “Junooniyat”.


Ramesh Sanjiv Swami goes gaga over Tiger Shroff

Actor Ramesh Sanjiv Swami, who will be seen playing an acquaintance of the main villain in “Baaghi”, heaped praise on actor Tiger Shroff’s professionalism and grounded nature.

Ramesh, a fitness enthusiast, will be seen with Telugu star Sudheer Babu, who will play the main villain in the film. He has some intense fight sequences with Tiger.

Ramesh says he was nervous to shoot the “action sequences with Tiger as he’s someone known for his martial art skills”.

“I clearly remember filming an action scene where Tiger had to kick me and due to the lack of time management, I would get hit on my face everytime. After a few kicks, Tiger hugged and explained to me how I needed to correct my timing to execute the scene properly. By the end of the series of these sequences, I was able to do the scenes like a professional,” Ramesh said in a statement.

“Baaghi”, which brings forward a story of two rebels and how they turn out to be emotional anchor for each other, is helmed by Sabbir Khan and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. Also starring Shraddha Kapoor, the film will release on Friday.
