Theatre not Aditya's cup of tea

Mumbai: Actor Aditya Roy Kapur feels he can never be part of a live play because remembering multiple dialogues is tough.
His journey in showbiz started when he was a video jockey on the small screen. From there on, he featured in bit roles in films like "London Dreams" and "Guzaarish" before getting his big break with "Aashiqui 2".
Asked if he will ever do theatre, he said: "There are so many dialogues...I feel that I'll never be able to do a play. Remembering so many dialogues is not easy. It is very tough."
Just last month, he was present to watch the theatrical production "Mera Woh Matlab Nahi Tha", featuring Anupam Kher and Neena Gupta, and he was floored by the play and the performances.
"After watching the play, I decided that I don't want to do a play ever in my life," he said.
'Chaiyya chaiyya' is special to Sonakshi
For actress Sonakshi Sinha, who is passionate about dance, Shah Rukh Khan's hit number "Chaiyya chaiyya" holds special significance as she attributes her "dancing ka keeda" (dancing bug) to the track.
"Chaiyya chaiyya" from "Dil Se.." was picturised atop a train and featured Shah Rukh matching steps with Malaika Arora Khan.
Sonakshi revealed on the set of "Indian Idol Junior" that the song is her all-time favourite. When the show's contestant Ajay Brijwasi performed on the song, the "Dabangg" actress couldn’t help but get up and dance. She even did the signature steps.
Never say never: Arjun on TV foray
Arjun Kapoor has dabbled in various roles on the big screen, but why has he kept away from TV? Never say never, says the "Gunday" star.
A string of actors, including Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha, have ventured onto the small screen as reality TV show judges or hosts. Is Arjun not planning it?
"I don't think they had planned to do it...I think the offer must have come at the time when they found it very exciting because they are doing fantastic brands (shows), whether it is Sonakshi or Shahid...the shows they are affiliated are fantastic brands and in my life I have always believed 'Never say never'.
"I never thought I can be an actor, and see where I am today. So, you should always be open to your opportunities and as the time arrives or the opportunity arrives, we'll consider it," he said.
