signing spree because she feels a good role is enough to keep an actor alive in the audience’s mind Related News In her two-decade long career Tabu has never been on a signing spree because she feels a good role is enough to keep an actor alive in the audience’s mind The 43-year-old “Haider” star said she has a unique “temperament” which does not allow her to follow others “I can’t do back-to-back films I can’t do promotions I have such a temperament that I cannot do anything in excess If I like something I will do it otherwise I won’t do it I never felt the need to be in the rat race I should be satisfied first as an actor with my work I will not do something because everyone is doing it” she told PTI in an interview Tabu started her career in showbiz as a child artiste in 1985 film “Hum Naujawan” where she played Dev Anand’s daughter She also tried her luck in Telugu films before debuting in Bollywood with Ajay Devgn-starrer “Vijaypath” The two actors have teamed up again after a long time in “Drishyam” and Tabu is happy with the way Devgn’s career has shaped up in the industry “Ajay has carved his own niche in the industry He is extremely versatile and I feel proud when I see his success and growth But success has not changed Ajay as a person He is still the same like he was 20 years ago It’s his speciality” said Tabu who last worked with Devgn in 1999 movie “Thakshak” Share This Article Related Article In “Drishyam” which is a remake of the Malayalam movie of the same name the National-award winning actress is playing a cop who is against Devgn in the film “I never thought that I will play such a role where we will be pitted against each other That shows how cinema has changed over the period of time and you get to understand your own journey “It’s a very important film for me My character comesinto play near the interval I have three important scenes with Ajay in the film” she said This is Tabu’s second project in two years and Tabu said she opted for the film because she found her role different “This role was very different from ‘Haider’ or the roles that I have played in the recent past Every character in the film is very strong and helps the story to move further I was excited to do the role and I thought it will be a completely different experience for me” she said Directed by Nishikant Kamat of “Force” fame “Drishyam” is releasing this Friday Tabu who watched the original version of the film two years ago during its premiere said Nishikant knows his work well and makes the whole shooting process relaxed “It was excellent It was one of the most relaxed shoots There are very few people in the industry who work without making things complex and Nishikant is one of them That’s how your work becomes easy He is very clear-headed in his approach” she said Besides “Drishyam” Tabu will be next seen in “Fitoor” She has replaced Rekha in the Abhishek Kapoor-directed film which also stars Katrina Kaif and Aditya Roy Kapur “Please don’t say like this that I have replaced Rekha ji I have immense respect for her… It’s a beautiful film and will release next February” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express

clean affair should be taken in the right spirit After former president N Srinivasan was allowed to buy an IPL franchisee and later it became a controversy the new BCCI regime is taking all necessary steps to improve its image Ganguly who was named in the BCCI advisory committee along with Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman has backed BCCI in it’s clean-up act File picture of Sourav Ganguly AFP "They (BCCI) have extended to everyone who is associated with cricket and I don’t see a problem with it because it is just a declaration that you give to the board" Ganguly said during a promotional event here yesterday "I really don’t keep a track as to who is signed by whom It will really be difficult for me to say anything on this And if there is anything to it then I am sure BCCI will deal with it" he added Ganguly is also eager to see how the national team performs in different formats with two set of skippers in Virat Kohli (Test) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (ODI and T20) "For this two captain’s theory India have never had that and obviously it has happened due to the retirement of MS (Dhoni) from Test matches But other teams in the world have had it like Australia England South Africa Sri Lanka If you win it works if you don’t win it doesn’t work" he said He also defended India’s spin veterans Harbhajan Singh and Amit Mishra after critics panned the selectors move to pick the experienced duo for Test series in Sri Lanka due to lack of young talent "I don’t see a problem between experienced and non-experienced it’s about how good the person is You only gain experience when you play" Ganguly said "I have lot of faith in Harbhajan in (Ravichandran) Ashwin and Amit Mishra Pragyan Ojha is another good left-arm spinner I think he picked 5 wickets against Australia A I think they will do well in sub-continent conditions in places like Sri Lanka and India where the ball spins "The biggest test for all spinners has been to bowl in England Australia South Africa and New Zealand That’s an area where they can get better" Ganguly added Now a cricket analyst Ganguly is also keenly following the Ashes which is tied at 1-1 and backs Australia in the remaining three Tests "I am backing Australia I was little surprised to see Australia losing in Cardiff It was familiar to the way they won at Lord’s and I think in the next three Test matches Australia are ahead" he said PTI Sheboygan: Rory McIlroy was nervous about his game Jordan Spieth was frustrated with his putting Not so surprising about the opening round of the PGA Championship on Thursday was Dustin Johnson He was leading Shaking off a double dose of disappointment in the majors Johnson breezed his way to a 6-under 66 in moderate morning conditions at Whistling Straits and wound up with a one-shot lead over David Lingmerth of Sweden It was the fifth time in 13 rounds at the majors this year that Johnson had at least a share of the lead Dustin Johnson watches his eagle putt drop during the first round of the PGA Championship golf tournament AP Just never on Sunday which he knows all too well "It’s only the first round" Johnson said It was a big start for McIlroy and a shaky one for Spieth They were the main event in the first round of the final major McIlroy has not played since the US Open out for 53 days because of an injury to his left ankle and mildly curious whether his game would be sharp enough to compete Adding to the buzz was playing with Spieth the Masters and US Open champion who is closing in on McIlroy’s No 1 ranking "It’s not that It’s more just being a little bit anxious coming back and seeing how my game is going to react whenever I’m put under a little bit of pressure and have a card in my hand and have to really score" McIlroy said "Once I got those first couple of holes out of the way I felt like I settled into the round really nicely" Three birdies on the par 5s and one big par save with his feet in the water carried him to a 71 Spieth doesn’t usually go 11 holes without making a putt of any length and frustrations were starting wear on him until he chipped in from behind the 12th green for birdie which steadied him enough to match McIlroy with a 71 Considering they played in a strong wind and tough afternoon conditions it was a reasonable start It certainly was for Johnson He took three putts from 12 feet on the final hole at the US Open to shockingly go from a chance to win to a runner-up finish behind Spieth He had the 36-hole lead at St Andrews until he disappeared on the weekend And the PGA Championship was at Whistling Straits where five years ago Johnson famously grounded his club in a bunker and lost out on a spot in the playoff because of the two-shot penalty It was like none of that ever happened He birdied the first two holes He hit 4-iron to 30 feet and made eagle on No 16 He added a trio of birdies on the front nine "Today was pretty easy I would have to say" Johnson said "But I was swinging well and I was hitting the shots where I was looking So anytime you’re doing that it makes things a lot easier on you The ball was going where I was looking I was controlling it In this wind it’s tough to do but I did a great job of controlling the golf ball today" The one par McIlroy made on the par 5s was as big as his three birdies He pulled his third shot on the par-5 fifth hole into the water and a double bogey looked likely But his ball was sitting up in the water so McIlroy rolled up his pant leg splashed it out to 7 feet and saved par "The only thing I was trying not to do was get my feet wet" McIlroy said "Because if the water gets through this shoe then the tape gets wet and then that would be a little more than just sort of annoying or uncomfortable for the rest of the day But it was fine It was a little bit deeper on the right side so I just rolled my right trouser leg up and it was fine I just had to remember to hit it hard And I was very fortunate to escape with a par there" That shot made for good TV Good for his soul was getting that first tee shot out of the way and especially the 3-wood he hit pure as ever onto the green at the par-5 second that led to birdie "That was full bore as good as I can do" McIlroy said Spieth was far more boring in opening with 10 pars and he was far more irritated He had one birdie chance after another on the front nine and missed them all trying to get the speed right and wondering how much the wind would affect it "I guessed wrong" he said And then he started to press and it nearly cost him He wasted an easy birdie chance on the short 10th hole by chipping 12 feet by the hole He three-putted from about 15 feet on the par-5 11th for a bogey After going just long of the par-3 12th he had to play a chip because of a sprinkler head in his line The chip came out hot and Spieth figured it would have gone some 12 feet by the hole Spieth said he was pleading it for it to hit the pin if nothing else to keep it near the hole It hit straight on and dropped for a birdie he badly needed "If I didn’t get that good break on 12 it could have been a different story the rest of the round" he said The wind began to blow hard over the final hour of Johnson’s round and it showed in the scores Of the 14 players who broke 70 Lingmerth and Scott Piercy (68) were the only ones who faced the tougher afternoon conditions Tiger Woods might be one day away from the end of his season Woods opened with a 75 and was in danger of missing the cut In the four majors this year he is 18-over par in the opening round with a scoring average of 76 Sydney:Key paceman Josh Hazlewood will be rested from Australia’s first one-day international against Pakistan this week after his starring role in the Test series sweep coach Darren Lehmann said Sunday

stand down from Friday’s first match in Brisbane "We have decided to give him a week to freshen up at home and he will link up with the ODI squad in Melbourne ahead of the second match of the series"

population Judging by the scale of pilferage and corruption that other schemes of this kind has fosteredSonias new idea will not workbut it may delude some voters into voting for Lady Bountiful My problem with the sort of economic ideas that Sonias National Advisory Council has imposed is that they have been tried over and over again and failed every time It was in those socialist decades when Indira Gandhi ruled supreme and our economic policy was defined by the slogan Garibi hatao that massive welfare programmes were first born Andas I have pointed out before in this columnhad just the ICDS (Integrated Child Development Scheme) workedwe would not be today facing the sickening reality that 45 per cent of Indian children are officially malnourished It is in my opinion our most shaming problem and I have tried on my travels to find out why it exists and discovered that at the heart of the crisis lie massivecentralised welfare schemes that are inherently flawed My other problem with Sonia Gandhis largesse is that it hasever since MNREGA beganmade the glorification of poverty fashionable again So in rural Indiawhere the economic boom inspired even the poorest people to want real improvement in their lives and instilled in them an aspiration to one day being prosperousthey again want to be counted among the poor to benefit from government dole and cheap grain So we are back to being the nation of beggars that we became as a consequence of Nehruvian socialism If the hundreds of thousands of crore rupees poured into subsidies and poverty alleviation schemes had been used instead to build roadsschools and hospitalsit is my conviction that we would today have been on the verge of becoming a developed country What is the point of bemoaning thisnow that it is all over and there is not the smallest hope that anything will change before the next general election Even if the Finance Minister had been able to change courseit may not have made a difference Sonia Gandhis economic legacy is that she has taken a booming economy and ground it down to the socialist growth rates that were the hallmark of her mother-in-laws economic policies It is now only a matter of time

had a “plan B” ready in such a scenario While asserting that Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis would complete his five-year tenure the top leadership of the party said they are not depending on any one political party to get to the magic figure A senior BJP functionary requesting not to be named told The Indian Express “If Shiv Sena walks out of the government we have plan B in place There is

organisations and independent members taking the total strength to 145 seats the magic figure to retain power Officially the BJP has decided not to react to the developments in the Sena A senior BJP cabinet minister who did not want to be named however said “The chief minister has regularly given the Sena ministers elected members and delegation audience There is not a single issue where the Sena’s request for any development work has not been taken to a logical end” A BJP political manager said “Sena president Uddhav Thackeray and youth wing leader Aaditya Thackeray have regularly shared the dais with Fadnavis Moreover Sena’s cabinet ministers are part of all the policy and decision-making process in the government So where is the question of ignoring their development work” A section within the BJP believes Shiv Sena’s “tantrums” are an outcome of their in-house problems The second-rung workers in the Sena are not happy with Sena cabinet ministers and senior leaders and in meetings they have been voicing their anger against their cabinet ministers and senior leaders to Thackeray A Sena cabinet minister confirming this said “In any political party there are bound to be differences Those who have not been able to become ministers or hold important posts often try to complain against us” Another reason cited for the Sena’s angst is senior Congress leader Narayan Rane’s reported move to join the BJP A senior Sena functionary said “If Rane joins the BJP the political equations in Konkan belt which is our stronghold would be adversely affected The BJP should not disturb us by inducting Rane into the party” According to a BJP MP “Sena MP Sanjay Raut’s ultimatum coincides with Rane’s public meeting at Sindhudurg Their real fear is Rane may join BJP and gain
