Disappointed at Lootera not being nominated, says Ranveer Singh

Actor Ranveer Singh is disappointed about his critically-acclaimed film 'Lootera', also starring Sonakshi Sinha, missing from nominations at most of the award functions. 

Vikramaditya Motwane's period drama 'Lootera', based on author O Henry's 1907 short story The Last Leaf, had received a mixed response after its release. 

Ranveer, who was appreciated for his performance in the film, is unhappy and disappointed that it failed to get nominated for this year's movie awards. 

"I don't think 'Lootera' is a failure. The producers earned money and it is a great film. If 'Lootera' was the best reviewed film of the year, then where is the recognition. It is a technically superior film of all the films released last year. I think Vikramaditya Motwane deserved nomination for direction," Ranveer said. 

The actor feels the film should have at least been nominated in categories like - best director, best film, cinematography and best production design.
"Such a technically superior film missing from nominations is very surprising. So, yes it is disappointing. I am disappointed for the team," he said. 

However, he is happy that his co-star Sonakshi was nominated in the Best Actress category for the Screen awards. 

"Sonakshi deserves to get a nomination. For me, 'Lootera' was higher in terms of performance than 'Ram Leela'. I can't talk about whether I deserve a nomination or not. 'Ram Leela' was easy in comparison to 'Lootera' as the latter was challenging," Ranveer said. 

But, the actor is happy at being nominated for his performance in 'Ram Leela'. 

He says the box office success of a film is not the only parameter to call it a superhit or blockbuster. 'Lootera' earned Rs.35 crore and according to Ranveer, it is not bad. 

"It is not about box office and the numbers, but about the memory of the film. Films like 'Andaz Apna Apna', 'Jab We Met' and 'Band Baaja Baraat' may not have achieved big numbers but they are watched again and again on TV or DVD," he said. 

"The memory of the film is important and 'Lootera' is one such film, you can watch it after 15 years and still cry. It was made in cinematic language which people are not used to. It is definitely a successful film," he added.

Bollywood does its bit

Bollywood's blue- eyed designer Manish Malhotra hosted yet another star- studded fashion show for Lilavati Hospital's ' Save and Empower the Girl Child' event in Mumbai on Wednesday evening. 

The initiative, that was first launched in 2012 by the hosipital, is aimed at protecting the girl child from deliberate harm and thus, ensuring her well- being from conception to adulthood. 

The couturier rounded an impressive line- up of Bollywood beauties that included Madhuri Dixit- Nene, Malaika Arora Khan, Lara Dutta, Preity Zinta, Evelyn Sharma, Isha Koppikar, Mandira Bedi, Ileana D'Cruz and other models who walked the ramp in elaborate ethnic designs. 

Madhuri took the lead in a Christmas- coded red and green embroidered lehenga ensemble. She said, " Let every girl child bloom, flourish and spread her fragrance in this world. 
Let us join hands to abolish female foeticide and make this world a better place." While Preity rocked in a green silk lehenga with an embroidered net dupatta , younger divas Evelyn and Isha also looked pretty and fresh in soft pink designer ensembles. 

Initiative was first launched in 2012.

'Heartbroken' Selena Gomez secretly checked into rehab post Justin Bieber split

Selena Gomez had secretly entered into a rehab facility in Arizona in January to seek treatment for "emotional trauma," post her break-up with troubled star Justin Bieber, it has been revealed. 

The Meadows recovery facility claims that it specialises in patients who are struggling with emotional trauma, addiction or dual diagnosis concerns. 

Even though the Disney star's rep told Radar Online that Gomez voluntarily spent time in rehab, but not for substance abuse, a source close to the 'Come and Get It' singer said that she had been "partying very hard" and taking marijuana and prescription pills, months before her stint in rehab . 

The insider said that the singer was exhausted after working in Hollywood non-stop for six years. 

The source asserted that Gomez was smart enough to understand that she needed to take control of her life and it just got to a point where she needed to get away from the pressures of Hollywood, to also get away from those who had, admittedly, become a bad influence on her. 

It is also worth noting that Gomez had said in a statement while announcing the cancellation of her 13-concert tour that after many years of putting her work first, she needed to spend time on herself in order to be the best person she can be.
