Mumbai, June 28 (IANS) Urvashi Rautela, the lead actress of "Great Grand Masti", says it's a family film and is devoid of vulgarity.

On the sidelines of a photoshoot for the Exhibit magazine, Urvashi spoke about "Great Grand Masti" and said: "It is a family film, not at all vulgar. It's more inspired by 'Masti' (the first film in the series). The audiences can come in with their families and enjoy."

Urvashi says that she plays the girlfriend of characters essayed by Riteish Deshmukh, Vivek Oberoi and Aftab Shivdasani in the film, the story of which is about how she turns into a virgin ghost.

"It is my first comedy film. It is a very interesting story and the character I play forms the main crux of the story, the soul of the film. I am very excited," she said.

Urvashi started her film career by playing a homely wife wearing saris in Sunny Deol's "Singh Saab The Great", but in "Great Grand Masti", she will be wearing revealing outfits.

About the transformation, Urvashi said: "As an actor, it is very important that there should be a character which is slightly 'hatke'. For example, Kajol did a negative character in 'Gupt'. Of course, my character is the solo heroine of the film, but this is a very different, very challenging and very demanding character.

"As a creative person, I got the opportunity to do comedy, action and also romance, to live and feel so many emotions and as an actor to showcase yourself to the fullest. To be able to portray such a significant character, I'm thankful to have that level of belief from my producers, my directors and my actors."

"Great Grand Masti", directed by Indra Kumar, is releasing on July 22.

Ali Fazal hopes to visit Pakistan

Actor Ali Fazal hopes that someday he gets to shoot in Pakistan.

Ali, who recently completed shooting for "Happy Bhaag Jaayegi" with Abhay Deol and Diana Penty, says he used to wonder that Pakistani fans may have mistaken him for Ali Zafar. But he was elated when that was not the case.

"I didn't know I had a fanbase on the other side (of the border). I thought Ali Zafar is Pakistani and they might have mistaken me for him. Yeah, that happens. Anyway, I am so delighted to maybe one day go there and meet those who like me and my work," Ali said in a statement.

"The closest I went (to Pakistan) was to the Attari-Wagah border when we shot some scenes there and it's electric to witness the same enthusiasm and vigour coming from the other side just a few feet away."

It was a case of so near, yet so far for Ali.

Surrogacy is cup of tea for rich people: Mahika Sharma

Former Miss Teen Northeast Mahika Sharma, who is involved in social work, feels more than welcoming children through surrogacy, celebrities should think about adopting orphans. She says surrogacy is a "cup of tea for rich people".

After superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan, actor Tusshar Kapoor became the latest Bollywood celebrity to announce the arrival of his son Laksshya, born last week through IVF and surrogacy.

Commenting on it, Mahika said in a statement: "Surrogacy is cup of tea for rich people. I feel adopting orphans is quite more important as it helps the child to live a better life in a family environment.

"When a person goes for surrogacy, he brings a new child to the world. So, I feel why bring a new one when many are already suffering from poverty and so on."

Mahika said that there should be more examples like actresses Raveena Tandon and Sushmita Sen, who have adopted children.

"Raveena, Sushmita and others have adopted and brought the child to a new state of living. They are an example of humanity. If I need to became a single parent, I'll better choose to adopt a child than go for surrogacy," Mahika said.
