This issue features an interesting interview with Dev and Freida. One has to get his hands on the magazine in order to know how the self-confessed ‘skinny guy’ Dev Patel swished a ‘good-looking actor’ to bag the lead role. If that’s not enough, Freida too goes on record to speak about her first hand experience at the auditions! This issue also carries an exclusive story about Shah Rukh Khan playing a real-life hero to Kashmiri orphans. Way to go, SRK! With the release of Slumdog Millionaire being lined up this week, it will be exciting to see if the couple manages to impress the Indian audiences and get acclaim, similar to what is happening in the west.
