'Lootera' songs apt for 'romantic' monsoon: Ranveer

Mumbai, June 27 (IANS) Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh says there's a certain romanticism in the song of his next film "Lootera", which will suit the mood of music aficionados during the monsoon season.

"Lootera" is releasing July 5, and when asked if the monsoon mania will help the movie or not, Ranveer said: "The fact that 'Lootera' is releasing in the most romantic time of the year is nice."

"The music of the film and the kind of film is most appropriate," he added.

"Lootera", a period romance, features Sonakshi Sinha opposite Ranveer. The film's soundtrack is like a breath of fresh air. The album, with six tracks, is composed by Amit Trivedi.

Neha Sharma wasn't cool with 'Kyaa Super Kool...' initially!

Bollywood actress Neha Sharma, who featured in 2012 sex comedy "Kyaa Super Kool Hai Hum", says she was not very comfortable in doing the film initially, but then accepted the role.

"I was not so comfortable with the idea because when the film was actually offered to me, my instinctive reaction was 'No!' as I was not comfortable doing it," Neha told IANS.

Co-produced by Sachin Yardi and Ekta Kapoor, "Kya Super Kool Hai Hum" also starred Riteish Deshmukh, Tusshar Kapoor and Sarah Jane Dias in the lead roles.

Neha says she changed her mind later, explaining: "I understand that being an actor, you can't be who you are in your real life. It is all about the character you are playing."

Neha was last seen in the second instalment of the Deol franchise "Yamla Pagla Deewana".
