Production suddenly sounds like a gamble if you aren't making a film with the word Jatt in the title, the protagonist hasn't cut half a dozen music albums and the script doesn't stick to the all-pervasive genre of a romantic comedy! On a few counts, director Manduip Singh doesn't give into the herd mentality. "Whether we want to cast a Bollywood actress or a singer or anybody else is a decision that the casting team takes. Ideally, the person who fits into the role should be playing it. That is something we've tried achieving in this film," he shares during the announcement of his upcoming film Just U & Me.

"Ask me a place where I haven't been. I have been to Alaska as well. I haven't been to China though, otherwise I have traveled widely"… the man talking about his travels, his faith in the almighty, love for his family, regular sessions at the gymnasium…is the one who had sparked the silver screen with his innocently naughty looks in the movie Jungle Main Mangal.

The golden colour and its crunchiness make maize a versatile ingredient for any dish. Our own 'roti' with makki ka atta is a dish relished by all North Indians and has become a delicacy for special occasions too. This innovative dish with maize flour is a sure winner.
A whiff of Delhi
No matter where we eat in Delhi, there is always a distinctive flavour. Little wonder that places are even named after the specialty, like the Paranthewali gali!

You don’t have to drop everything and travel to Delhi just to savour all those delicacies. For, Indi Spice, Park Plaza-17 brings you the taste of Delhi-6 yet again after the huge response they received last year.
There are better ways of spending a Sunday than catching up on all the repeat telecast on television, than re-arranging your wardrobe, or deciding what to eat, whether a brunch should be good enough or supper should be fine. There are definitely better ways to spend a Sunday. Like for instance if you stay in Chandigarh, Panchkula, Mohali or Ambala, you can gather your family together, pack them in a car, grab your swimming costumes and head straight for the recently- opened Aloft, Zirakpur.
