When was the last time you saw a hero make an entrance on a bike as the heroine runs down an alley in the most flowing gown possible? Yeah, very often — that’s a Bollywood prototype for portraying young lovers? Paying a tribute to that model is T-Series’ recent standalone track — ‘Harjai’ featuring TV anchor-turned-actor Maniesh Paul and singer-TV host Iulia Vantur.
What’s special about this new song? Nothing! Be it the tune, the lyrics, the video, the tone — we have already seen it umpteen number of times in Bollywood films. The underlying narrative amid these visuals also tell a story that is nothing new. The couple meets, develops a bond, there comes a break and they reunite.
The only surprise element in the whole song is the fact that Paul and Vantur have both sung the song along with composer-lyricist Sachin Gupta. Both of them have done a rather good job behind the mic. The auto-tuning bit on the track is pretty evident, but the singers still manage to pull off a decent job.
That’s about it. Apart from their singing, there’s nothing that works for them. Their “chemistry” is as nonreactive as it could get.
The Romanian beauty is on a roll in India!
Much has been said about Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s girlfriend Iulia Vantur. The Romanian television presenter has turned heads and raised eyebrows after getting caught time and again with Salman but has managed to fool the paparazzi in doing so.
However we have managed to get our hands on an eyewitness who tells us how Salman’s girlfriend sneaks into Galaxy apartments (where Salman resides) without anyone’s notice. “Iulia travels in a rickshaw to reach bhai’s apartment. This way she is hidden from the flashing cameras that follow Salman everywhere. Salman’s bodyguards are also kept at bay from her for the same reason. It is better this way for them to move in or around the city,” says the source.
Even after playing hide and seek with the media, the duo were caught red-handed a few days ago when Salman was spotted coming out of Varun Dhawan‘s Juhu home with a woman in the backseat of his car. And the woman was none other than Iulia. Well that’s something for a couple who is trying hard to keep their relationship under the wraps.
Now that Salman Khan is a free man after his many have started guessing the time of his marriage. While previously Sallu had a reason to rubbish the rumours, what will the actor do now when there’s no excuse?
