It’s been an intense couple of months all over the world, with people isolating themselves and quarantining – and, basically, establishing a new global relationship. Celebrities are also rediscovering themselves and sharing parts of it with their fans adapting the new normal. Many of them have shared pictures of their various moods and activities.
As the lockdown rules are easing all across the country, just like us, celebrities are also resuming their business. Last month, most of the TV shoots were resumed and even their new episodes are being telecast. Now, it’s time for the Bollywood to adapt the new normal and resume their shoots.
Have a look at how celebrities have adopted the new normal-
For instance, Simmba’s actress Sara Ali Khan shared pictures of her brother Ibrahim and her just chilling out after Rakhi – They were reportedly flying out of Mumbai. She posted: “Post Rakhi bonding vibe on their social media. I had to pay to match with me. My younger brother- pleaded that him to join my tribe. But his day out was fun- he says, ‘I can’t describe’. To see more please like share and subscribe #doubletrouble #twinning #winning.”
Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani, who were last seen together in the film ‘Kalank’ of Karan Johar. They were both seen walking from the Dharma production office together with their masks.
Other celebrities braving the COVID-19 storm include actress Disha Patani who posted a beautiful picture of herself on Instagram dressed in a white tank top and oversized shirt coupled with a pair of denim shorts.
‘Aashiqui 2′ actor Aditya Roy Kapur was spotted in Bandra wearing a white mask.
Kareena Kapoor Khan goes to visit her sister Karisma Kapoor with her son, Taimur. While the siblings remain close by, Kareena and Taimur ensure they wear their masks.
‘Houseful’ star Akshay Kumar is known for his work ethic and he does not allow anything to deter him from returning to life. The actor was photographed along with his wife, author Twinkle Khanna aka Mrs Funnybones, and their children wearing grey track pants and sweatshirt at Mumbai airport.
New normal with family? Definitely a yes!
He was accompanied by Huma Qureshi – who was seen not only with a facemask but also a face shield to defend against the novel coronavirus. They will shoot in Glasgow, Scotland, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic for the first international schedule of the upcoming film “Bell Bottom”
Who does not say facial masks can be fun? Lara Dutta and her family former Miss Universe wore fashionable appliances at the airport; Dutta is off for a shoot for her upcoming movie.
In his latest Instagram video, Ranveer Singh flaunts his muscles, because, he says, “kaam dhanda nahi hai” [I have nothing else to do].
Actress Preity Zinta is in beauty mode. Preity gave her husband Gene Goodenough a barber’s hat last month – and he must have been pretty good at it. She took to Instagram on Sunday and shared a video of her husband getting her hair cut.

Harami Trailer: Emraan Hashmi’s Indo-American Film
The trailer of Emraan Hashmi’s new film Harami dropped off the Internet on Monday. Written and directed by Shyam Madiraju, the film will premiere at Busan International Film Festival in October. The Busan International film festival will take place from October 21 to October 30. The “hard-hitting street saga’, Harami has been nominated in the film, director and audience categories, known as the New Currents Award, Kim Jiseok Award and the KNN Audience award, respectively.
Watch the Harami trailer:
Sharing the trailer on social media, Shyam Madiraju wrote:
“Official selection to New Currents main competition section of Busan International Film Festival 2020. Harami is a hard-hitting, visually striking street saga of youth crime and broken destinies, love and redemption, played out against the vibrant backdrop of chaotic and relentless Mumbai.”
Harami also features Rizwan Shaikh, Danshree Patil, Harsh Rajendra Rane, Ashutosh Gaikwad, Machindra Ghadkar, Sarthak Dusane, Manish Mishra, Yash Kamble, Durgesh Gupta, Aditya Bhagat, Starr Liu, Diksha Nisha and Adil Khan.
Harami focuses on the story of a teenage boy, who pickpockets at local Mumbai stations with his gang. His life takes a 180-degree when he falls in hopelessly in love with the daughter of one of his victims, who died by suicide after being robbed. On his path of redemption, the boy faces strong opposition from his boss (Emraan Hashmi).
Talking about his character, Emraan Hashmi says,
“My character is a former English teacher who does a U-turn to become the ringleader of a gang of young pickpockets who frequent Mumbai locals. So, while everyone around him speaks Bambaiya Hindi, Sagar Bhai chooses to speak in English because he’s tutoring these slum kids in the language too, so they can hoodwink unsuspecting foreign tourists and flick their wallets.”
Earlier this month, Emraan Hashmi unveiled his first look from the film. He can be seen sporting long curly hair with a gold chain and a pair of framed spectacles in the poster.
Talking about the film, director Shyam said in a statement,
“Harami, while set in the streets and slums of Mumbai is a universal story of hope and redemption. The film, a labour of love, took me over two years to just scout during numerous visits to India and despite all the monumental challenges we shot live in Victoria Terminus, Bombay Central, and other trains stations, a feat not for the faint-hearted. With crews over 200 including international talent from America, UK, Denmark and South Africa, Harami was a global production set in the slums of Dharavi and crowded streets of Mohamed Ali Road.”
On casting Emraan, Madiraju went on to say,
“It was Emraan Hashmi playing the role of ‘Sagar Bhai’ a very Dickensian Feagin-like character who is a former English teacher turned gang lord who is the real revelation of the film. The role complex and nuanced and unlike anything Emraan had done before, was a true challenge for both Emraan and me.”
