New Delhi, Aug 20 (IANS) He has bagged kudos for his outstanding performance in the latest hit 'Kaminey', but Shahid Kapoor says he can never match his father Pankaj Kapoor when it comes to acting.

'I can never be like my father (in terms of acting)...he is way beyond anyone to be like him. I don't even have any aspirations to be like him because I know that's not happening. I just hope whenever my father sees my films, he likes my work,' Shahid said.

Apparently the father and son are going to come together in a film for the first time. Yet untitled, the project will go on floors early next year.

Kabir Khan to go back to making documentaries

He might still be riding high on the success of his second outing 'New York' but director Kabir Khan says he would love to go back to making documentary films.

'Right now my focus is on feature films but documentaries are like raw material from which I get ideas and motivation. I base my films on reality and I'm definitely going back to making documentaries. I am not leaving them...they are my passion,' Khan told IANS.

Khan, who made his directorial debut with 'Kabul Express' (2006), has earlier made two critically acclaimed documentaries -- 'The Forgotten Army' (1999) and 'The Journalist and the Jihadi: The Murder of Daniel Pearl' (2006).

Gowariker shot 'What's Your Rashee' song in one go

Ashutosh Gowariker attempted to do what very few Bollywood filmmakers have done - he shot for an entire song in one go for his forthcoming romantic comedy 'What's Your Rashee?'.

The song 'Aaja lehrate' was shot using a five camera set-up and was shot in a continuous take, a source from the sets of the film told IANS.

Set in a pub, the song has been choreographed by Rajeev Surti and features lead actors Priyanka Chopra and Hurman Baweja.

'Shooting the song in one go meant that for every take the actors had to perform the entire song again if anything went wrong. This was extremely tiring for Hurman because of the energy required in his movements. And things went worse when Priyanka fell extremely ill during the filming of the song,' the source said.

'What's Your Rashee' is based on a Gujarati novel 'Kimball Ravenswood' by noted playwright Madhu Rye. It revolves around a young man in pursuit of his dream girl, whom he must find within 10 days to save his family from an unforeseen ordeal. The film is set to release Sep 25.

In 1967, the song 'Hothon pe aisi baat' from 'Jewel Thief' featuring Vyjayanthimala and Dev Anand had been shot in one go. So also was 'Chale jaise hawaayien' in Farah Khan's debut directorial venture 'Main Hoon Na' (2004).
