Young faces, new agenda

The Tribune team of Tripti Nath, S. Satyanarayanan and Prashant Sood talk to the new MPs about their hopes and aspirations.

Young MPs: New voices from region
Prabhjot Singh
Punjab
may be behind Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and even Madhya Pradesh in sending Harvard or Wharton graduates to the 14th Lok Sabha, yet it has taken a lead over other states in this region by electing three first-timers, including a woman.

She dances to her own tune
Aditi Tandon
Acting has never been Nandita Puriís first love. She took to it out of need. Years ago, when she bagged her first role in the much-acclaimed serial Campus, Nandita realised that television could bring in good money ó something she desperately needed as a struggling classical dancer in Mumbai. As her financial position eased, Nandita found enough time for kathak, her first and only love.

In search of solo hit
V. Gangadhar

Having been a Saif bet in supporting roles, Hum Tum is the film which is expected to prove his mettle as a solo hero. Saif Ali Khan undergoes the litmus test as the film hits the theatres.

Worth a catch
Ervell E. Menezes
Edward
Bloom (Albert Finney) has a knack of spinning stories faster than the drop of a hat and this sort of embarrasses his son Will (Billy Crudup). How much of it is truth and how much fiction is anybodyís guess but his audience seems to enjoy them. It is only after Edward is terminally ill and his wife Sandra (Jessica Lange) gets her†son Will to reconcile with his dad that the viewer treads the fine line between fact and fiction in Big Fish.
