Let's hope that the first movie gets released first...since from what we hear, "Kaptaan" is not even close to final release.

Barbara Striesand (famous singer and actress) slept on a couch in a friend's Manhattan New York office so she could audition and look for work every day in the entertainment business. The harder I try, the luckier I get.

It seems this lady is playing the role of Jemima in Kaptaan. However, I don't think she can get the role of a heroin in a 'A Class' Indian movie on merit, as she does not seem to have the kind of looks we prefer in quality actresses from Bollywood. Therefore, she is trying to play the same Pakistan Card which Meera played and failed miserably at. I think with her looks she can be a great addition to Pakistani Dramas, which are a million times better and thought provoking than the plastic movies made in Bollywood

Kaptaan does not look like the real Kaptaan.

She will probably play the role of Jamima Khan. I am sure the film will be released closer to elections.
