Mumbai: Punjabi singer-actor Jassi Gill says his "Happy Phirr Bhag Jayegi" co-star Sonakshi Sinha should stop singing.

Jassi expressed his views when he appeared on an episode of the show "By Invite Only". He appeared along with Rhea Chakraborty. The episode will air on Saturday on Zoom, read a statement. 

During the last leg of the show, host Renil Abraham played fun-filled games with the celebrities. 

Rhea was asked the 'Kill, Marry, Hook up' question with her options being Varun Dhawan, Sidharth Malhotra and Zaheer Iqbal.

The actress said: "I would marry Varun because we are friends, hook up with Sidharth because he is hot, kill Zaheer and then call him and apologize."

On the other hand, Jassi was asked to name a celebrity who should stop singing, he said "Sonakshi Sinha".

The actress made her debut into singing with "Ishqoholic" in 2016. Sonakshi has sung a track titled "Raj raj ke" for her film "Akira".

Opening up about dealing with pressure on social media, Rhea said: "When you are a female on social media, there is a lot more scrutiny one goes through." 

Talking about facing trolls, the actress added: "Can I kiss your navel, is what someone messaged me on social media." 

Unhappy with the ongoing trolling culture, Jassi said: "There is a lot of unemployment in India and some of them have made trolling their profession. They used to call me 'fukra' and 'wannabe'. Earlier, I used to react because I used to think, 'what wrong have I done to get trolled?'".

‘Dabangg 3’ a big responsibility: Arbaaz Khan

Mumbai: Arbaaz Khan, who is busy producing "Dabangg 3", says his upcoming action-comedy drama film is a big responsibility for him as an actor and producer.

Arbaaz was interacting with the media at promotional press conference of ZEE5's web series "Poison" here on Thursday.

He is caught up doing multiple things these days. On one hand he is producing Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha-starrer "Dabangg 3", and on another he is juggling between a talk show titled "Quick Heal Pinch by Arbaaz Khan" and "Poison".

Asked how is he manages to do all these things, he said: "I wouldn't say this ('Poison') was easy but, that project ('Dabangg 3') requires more attention from my side because I am working as an actor and a producer in it. I also look at Salman's co-ordination and all that.

"While working in ‘Poison', I just need to focus on my character. Whereas, hosting a talk show is like a breeze. I finish shooting each episode of that show in one or two hours, so it's not such a big thing. But I absolutely agree that ‘Dabangg 3' is a big responsibility."

Directed by Prabhudheva, "Dabangg 3" brings back Salman as Chulbul Pandey. The team recently completed its first leg of shooting in Maheshwar in Madhya Pradesh.

On being a part of "Poison", Arbaaz said: "It's an interesting web series. I was always looking for something interesting on the web medium. When this script and character came to me, I found it very interesting and I wanted to portray it. I feel fortunate that I got an opportunity and it has turned out pretty good. I am happy that I have done that, and now I am waiting for the results."

Arbaaz said web series are the next big thing in the world of entertainment.

"I don't know what reservation people have towards web series... If you see, people in the West, that should be taken as example that how big web series are over there and how big stars from cinema have gone in web series and became even bigger stars.

"There are actors like Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and so many other actors who worked in cinema but never got the kind of fame and recognition that they got from web series. They have become even bigger stars and multi-millionaires. So, that will happen sooner or later here (in India).

"Cinema is there and it will always exist, but this will co-exist with cinema. I think actors and creative people will get their due even on the digital platform."
