Aayush Sharma misses the mountains

Debutant Aayush Sharma, who hails from Mandi in Himachal Pradesh, says his journey from a small town to a city like Mumbai has been interesting as he has gone through his share of ups and downs. 

"The journey from Mandi to Mumbai has been a very interesting one. I've gone through my share of ups and downs in Mumbai which is home now, but I will always be a Mandi boy. When I was assisting on 'Tubelight', we were travelling across Himachal. But shooting in Mandi would be something that would be very special to me," Aayush said in a statement. 

The actor says he would love to have the screening of his maiden film "Loveratri" in Mandi.

"Even for my upcoming film 'Loveratri', I would like to have a special screening there since watching it with all my people from Mandi would be very special," he added.

Directed by first-time director Abhiraj Minawala, written by Naren Bhatt and produced by Salman Khan Films, "Loveratri" also stars Warina Hussain. It will release on October 5.

Harshvardhan Rane's Ryan Gosling connect

Harshvardhan Rane says there may be a wee bit similarity between his role in a forthcoming yet untitled Telugu film and that of the character essayed by Ryan Gosling in "Drive".

Harshvardhan's look from the movie bears some resemblance to Gosling's stuntman-turned-driver look in "Drive".

On this, Harshvardhan said in a statement: "I really do not know how to react about the comparison it makes me smile though, but to be honest there might be just a tiny bit similarity when it comes to the profession of my character in this film and his character in 'Drive'."

The actor, who is eagerly awaiting the release of "Paltan", has earlier been a part of two Telugu blockbusters "Fida" and "Geethanjali".
