Mumbai, Jan 30 — Filmmaker Ekta Kapoor along with the cast of "Ek Thi Daayan" is set to perform a yagna at the Maha Kumbh in Allahabad.

H.H. Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji, founder of Ganga Action Parivar and president of Parmarth Niketan Ashram, has invited Ekta and her "Ek Thi Daayan" team for the grand yagna Feb 9 at the Maha Kumbh.

She said she will be attending to get rid of all the negative energy.

Emraan Hashmi and Huma Qureshi will reach Allahabad as early as Feb 8, and engage in a series of innovative activities to promote the keenly awaited supernatural thriller. The team will reside in specially constructed tents on the banks of the Ganga, amid tight security.

"Ek Thi Daayan", co-produced by Vishal Bhardwaj and directed by Kannan Iyer, releases worldwide April 18.

Big B can fly planes!

Not many know that Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who is known for his acting, can also fly airplanes.

During the grand finale of "India's Prime Icon", the inimitable actor disclosed his hidden talent.

Not only that, the 70-year-old revealed that at one point in his life he had wished to join the Air Force.

He also spoke about the heights he hoped to reach, which today seem as a fairly low goal when compared to the status he has achieved.

"Yes I did take up flying. And if there ever is an emergency and you are in the aircraft, I may be able to land that plane," he said.

However, showing off his humorous side, the legendary actor quickly added, "provided it's a glider".

Amitabh was chosen as the winner of "India's Prime Icon". The episode of the show airs Friday on Big CBS Prime.
