The latest cat-out-of-the-box is pertaining to Mukta Arts’ upcoming film HELLO DARLING and the fact being that yet she seems nowhere in promotion of the film but actress Divya Dutta is a part of the movie ‘Hello Darling’. Yes, the movie has Divya Dutta playing the role of a Gujrati housewife to actor Javed Jaffrey whereas in entire promotion of the film, only the three glam girls, Gul Panag, Eesha Koppikar Narang and Celina Jailtly and Javed Jaffrey are visible.

It was a conscious call from the Director and Producer of the film to keep Divya hidden in the publicity, because they felt it is one of the most important characters in the film and basis for the story to excel.

Hard Work, Talent Destiny, luck all these things Play an important part in our Survival as Actors – Salman Khan

Salman Khan enacted as a Police Inspector in “Gaarv” and “Wanted but playing a police officer in Dabanng as Chulbul Pandey, Salman will portray a different police officer. Being “fearless, corrupt, lovable and a bad-ass Robin Hood.” This is an action, entertainment and a full on drama based film. The story of the film is fictitious. It is not based on any Police officer. I have not been to Uttar-Pradesh or Bihar. I shall be going now while we will promote the film.” He goes on to add Arbaaz Khan did not want me to show my six packs coz it would definitely look like a fake P.I. nor he wanted me to show a flat stomach.
