‘Men live in cities, cities live in men too’…that’s the tagline of Chandan’s new film, Prague. It looks dark and edgy and the actor looks totally psyched out onscreen. We wonder what’s spooking all hell out of him!
It seems that Chandan Roy Sanyal plays an architect and an insomniac in the film. So while we see him sketching and dealing with the frustrations of his life, the psychedelic patterns and complex visuals raise our curiosity to a great extent. Click here to read more
The actor has agreed to be a part of a television project to be directed by Bejoy Nambiar. Although it’s a good thing that the Ekk Deewana Tha actor is doing different things, career-wise, the fly in this ointment is that Nambiar is Juhi Babbar’s (Prateik’s sister) ex-husband

I have got an opportunity to work with some very good directors, but it is hard to keep up the good work,” said Kalki. Click here to read more
Now that Shahid is done wrapping up Kunal Kohli’s Teri Meri Kahaani, he will be seen in a film with Bejoy Nambiar
Neither Bejoy nor Shahid are in any mood to reveal details of their upcoming film. The two have taken the hush-hush route for now. Bejoy says he’s extremely busy shooting for his current film – David - which leaves him with little or no time to work on his next project with Sasha. Mr Kapoor, on the other hand, has declared that the film will go on the floors by the end of this year. Now if that is indeed the case, it’s simply hard to believe that they haven’t started brainstorming about the film yet. Click here to read more
