Rachel is best known for featuring in shows such as Happy Endings and The League. She has also worked in Hollywood films including Neighbours and The Entourage Movie. She plays the role of a Russian spy Alice in Pathaan.
Rachel said that she knew nothing about the scale of the film when she came onboard and could only guess it after realising that Deepika Padukone was a part of the film. “I knew nothing about Pathaan when I booked it. Not even the title, but when I saw Deepika Padukone’s name on wardrobe trunks while I was shooting at the Yash Raj studio in Mumbai. I knew that this film was going to be very big. She’s so incredibly gorgeous.”
Asked about Shah Rukh Khan, she added, “I’m going to catch some ire for this but I didn’t know who he was until we worked together. One of the assistant directors explained that he was a big deal. We had a nice day together and it turns out we share the same birthday.”
Recalling how it all began, Rachel said, “My incredible agent, Ravi Ahuja had me audition for the part. I was in the Maldives when I got the call that I booked it and immediately went to Mumbai for costume fitting.”
She also talked about the response that she has received since the release of Pathaan: “I’ve gotten so much love because of it. Watching the response from fans the world over has left me with my jaw on the floor.”
Speaking of the difference between the functioning of Hollywood and Bollywood, she said that a few things are very similar, adding, “The production value and level of talent in individual people is the key difference between Hollywood and Bollywood. Everyone in Bollywood can sing, dance and act in equal measure. That is a real rarity in Hollywood. There are tons of labour laws in the union town of Hollywood but Bollywood doesn’t have such strict rules. Modern Bollywood is more like old Hollywood.”
“I learned that following my instincts and changing myself when the world changes is never a bad decision. I’m so happy I refused to stop working even when Hollywood shut down. I’m a big believer in the idea of going where you’re treated best and I love that Bollywood is really accepting of me,” she said.
Elaborating on how the switch to Indian entertainment happened for her, Rachel said, “After I shot part of my documentary that I directed and produced in India, back in 2016. I spoke to an agent on LinkedIn. We talked about Bollywood projects for years and I was very busy in Hollywood. However, when coronavirus lockdown imploded the entertainment business in Los Angeles I thought it was time to make the jump. At the height of India’s lockdown I was admitted and immediately started auditioning for projects the day after I landed.”
Talking about her first Indian project, Rachel Ann Mullins says, “The first time I went to India was for a documentary which I was producing and directing. Interviewing girls living in an acid attack survivor house in New Delhi changed my career and me as a person.”
Having studied fashion merchandising at McKinnely, Rachel Ann Mullins began her journey as a model a the age of 12. Apart from Pathaan, Rachel’s most recent appearance was on the Season 2 of I’m Dying Up Here, and the Indian web series Chutzpah which premiered on SonyLIV. Next up, she has the fantasy film Empire Queen lined up for release.

Sonali Kulkarni apologises after calling Indian women lazy | Bollywood

Sonali wrote, “Dear all, I’m overwhelmed with the feedback I’m receiving. I would like to thank all of you, especially the entire press and media for the extremely mature conduct of connecting with me. Being a woman myself, my intention was not to hurt other women. In fact, I have extensively expressed myself time and again in support of us and what is it being a woman. I’m grateful to all of you for reaching out to me personally to appreciate or to criticize. Hope we will be able to have more open exchange of thoughts.”
“In my capacity I am trying to think, support and share warmth not only with women, but with the entire mankind. It will be only strengthening if we women with our vulnerabilities and wisdom shine through as fair and able beings. If we are inclusive and empathetic, we will be able to create a healthier, happier place to be,” she continued.
She also added, “Having said that, if unknowningly, I may have caused pain, I want to apologize from the bottom of my heart. I do not thrive upon headlines neither do I want to be the center of sensational situations. I’m a diehard optimist and I strongly believe that life indeed is beautiful. Thanks for your patience and support. I have learned a lot from this incident.”
In a recent press meeting, Sonali Kulkarni said, “In India, we, at times, forget that a lot of women are just lazy. They want a boyfriend/husband, who earns well, owns a house, and his performance at work guarantees regular increments. But, in the middle of this, women forget to make a stand for themselves. Women don’t know what will they do. I urge everyone to encourage women and make them self-dependent. So that they are capable enough to share the household expenses with their partners.”
Sonali’s video has now gone viral on social media. She was criticised by Urofi Javed and Sona Mohapatra among others. Sonali was last seen in the 2021 series Whistleblowers on SonyLiv.
Paris Hilton breaks silence on her ‘inappropriate relationship’ with teacher | Hollywood
Paris Hilton has recently released her book ‘Paris: The Memoir,’ which revealed many personal and previously undisclosed details about her life. While the book has been well-received, Paris has admitted that it wasn’t easy for her parents to read it. During an appearance, she shared that she was anxious for her mom Kathy Hilton and dad Richard Hilton to read ‘so much of the book.’ In the book, she shared her inappropriate relationship with an eighth grade teacher, relationship with Jason Shaw and infamous sex tape incident with then boyfriend Rick Salomon.

In a recent interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, Paris admitted that she was apprehensive about her parents reading her newly released memoir, Paris: The Memoir, which chronicles her life, struggles, and triumphs. In her memoir, she revealed that she became pregnant with Jason Shaw’s child, but chose to pursue an abortion. In explaining her decision, she wrote, “There was no happy little family at stake. That was not going to happen. Trying to continue that pregnancy with the physical and emotional issues I was dealing with at the time would have been a train wreck for everyone involved. At that moment in my life, I was in no way capable of being a mother. Denying that would have jeopardized the family I hoped to have in the future at a time when I was healthy and healed.”
She recounted not only her relationship with Jason during the early days of The Simple Life, but also detailed her younger years. In one particularly disturbing chapter, Hilton revealed an inappropriate relationship she had with her eighth-grade teacher at a Catholic school.
According to Hilton, the teacher frequently inquired whether her parents were home, and on one occasion, when they were not, he came over to her house. Paris recalled, “I saw a late-model SUV idling at the top of the driveway. I climbed into the passenger seat. Teacher pulled me into his arms and kissed me.”
She also shared her newfound happiness in her relationship with her husband, Carter Reum. She expresseed her love and admiration for him, and their joy was multiplied when they welcomed their son Phoenix Barron via surrogate in February.
She also took to Instagram and shared a long note about her new book, Paris: The memoir and wrote, “Paris: The Memoir is out NOW! I chose to narrate my own audiobook. While it was honestly so hard to write this book and then relive everything again by speaking every word out loud for my audiobook, I’m glad I did it. I hope hearing my story, in my own words, and straight from me encourages you all to tell your stories and embrace your highs and lows and your true selves. Our multitudes and complexities are beautiful. #ThisIsWhoIAm. You can check out my audiobook and learn more about sharing your own story at the link in my memoir.”
Paris rose to fame in the early 2000s with her appearances on reality TV shows like The Simple Life and her party-girl persona. Since then, she has built a successful career as an entrepreneur, launching multiple fashion and beauty lines, fragrances, and even a DJ career.
