Posted on 09 November 2017 by admin

No expense is being spared to ensure Yash Raj Films’ Thugs Of Hindostan turns out to be the blockbuster that it is meant to be. Sources close to Yash Raj Films reveal that the film’s 90-crore has shot up by at least 10 extra crores.
“There is no compromising with the budget for signing stars or for the locations where the film is being shot. The best technicians from the world over have joined hands with producer Aditya Chopra and director Vijay Krishna Acharya,” says a source close to Yash Raj.
In addition A-list stars are being added to the cast every day. With Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif already in the cast we now hear that Shah Rukh Khan would make a very special appearance in a film.
Says a source from Yash Raj, “Aditya Chopra’s instruction to his director Vijay Krishna Acharya is to make a high-end action-adventure drama with the most spectacular visual effects seen in Hindi cinema. People think the role-model for Thugs Of Hindostan is Pirates Of The Caribbean. It is. But it is a lot more. After Baahubali, Aditya Chopra wants Thugs Of Hindostan to shine to be the next level of showmanship from India on the global platform.”

Kim Sharma divorces her Kenya-based husband Ali Punjani

Posted on 09 November 2017 by admin

For a long time Kim Sharma’s troubled marriage with Kenya based businessman Ali Punjaniwas doing the round and now the latest could be heard that the ‘Mohabattein’ actress finally divorced her husband and now she is happily single. Kim applied for divorce some months back and now the paper work is completed.

After splitting with Ali, Kim headed to India and established relationship with designer Arjun Khanna. Both were spotted together in few occasions and looks visibly happy. Kim and Arjun’s extra-marital affair came into forefront when both entered celebrity photographer Daboo Ratnani’s calender launch hand in hand early this year. In the beginning of January, Arjun and Kim headed for a vacation in Alibaugh. On Kim’s birthday on January 21, Arjun planned a bash for her in Goa.

It is reported that Ali’s extra-marital affair spoiled their relationship.

“Ali left Kim as he got attracted to another woman. The irony is that when Ali met Kim, he was plump and not great-looking but now because he is in love, he has lost weight and looking great. But Kim is left with no money or financial security,” DNA quoted a source as saying.

In the beginning, Kim Sharma denied stories of marital trouble, she said, “It’s all rubbish. I don’t really want to comment on such rubbish stories”.

Talking about the rumours, she had first tweeted, “When you spend the weekend raging at #Coldplay and come back to find out you’re ‘penniless’”

Her second tweet reads, “I can’t wrap my head around all these different angles and ‘groundbreaking’ details everyone seems to know so much about.” “Straight from the horse’s mouth – There is much ado about nothing. Next,” she concluded with this tweet.

Parineeti Chopra bags Akshay Kumar-starrer Kesari

Posted on 09 November 2017 by admin

 Parineeti Chopra had a great debut in 2011 with Ladies VS Ricky Bahl. Despite being just one of the four girls, Parineeti stole the thunder from everyone and was inundated with praises and best debutant awards. She followed it up with some great performances in films like Ishaqzaade, Shuddh Desi Romance and Hasee Toh Phasee. But then she delivered two back-to-back flops – Daawat-E-Ishq and Kill Dil. She then took a sabbatical and made a comeback almost 2 ½ years later with Meri Pyaari Bindu. But even that didn’t work much. Finally, the Diwali release Golmaal Again brought cheer and the much needed hit in her life.

That’s not all. She already has two exciting films in her kitty – acclaimed director Dibakar Banerjee’s Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar, co-starring Ishaqzaade co-star Arjun Kapoor, and Vipul Shah’s Namastey Canada, also starring Arjun. And now, reports claim that she has bagged one more film and it arguably would be the biggest project of her career. The film in question is Kesari, starring Akshay Kumar and produced by Dharma Productions. It is expected to be one of the biggest films of 2019 and it’s based on the significant Battle of Saragarhi. Earlier, Salman Khan was also a part of the project but he backed out for unknown reasons. It is directed by acclaimed Punjabi director Anurag Singh. With his massy storytelling and stunning action and VFX shots, Kesari can prove to be a bigger hit than Golmaal Again for Parineeti.

Posted on 09 November 2017 by admin

One of the most surprising developments of the year was that of Race 3. The first two parts featured Saif Ali Khan in leading roles. But earlier in 2017, it was announced that Salman Khan will play the lead role in Race 3. Moreover, Abbas-Mustan, who handled the first 2 parts, won’t be helming the third part. Instead, Remo D’Souza would be directing the slick action thriller.

Later, the makers made it clear that Jacqueline Fernandez and Bobby Deol have joined the cast. For the rest of the cast, there was a lot of speculation. It was speculated that Sidharth Malhotra, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sooraj Pancholi are a part of the cast but the makers remained tight lipped.

Finally, today the producers of the film, Tips, announced the complete star cast of the film, thereby putting an end to all the speculations. As per the announcement, Race 3 will star Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Saqib Saleem, Daisy Shah and Freddy Daruwala.

Posted on 03 November 2017 by admin

Brahmastra was announced with much fanfare by Karan Johar on social media. With Ranbir Kapoor in the lead role of a superhero, the film is said to have been inspired from Indian mythology and now we hear that the makers are releasing it in 3D.

Karan Johar has time and again maintained that Brahmastra is a trilogy that will follow the story of the protagonist which includes from establishing characters to achieving his goals by defeating the antagonists. From what we hear, the makers have big plans for the film including a lavish budget of Rs. 150 crores. The film will feature Ranbir Kapoor having the superpower of unleashing fire from his palms.

While they have asserted that the film will not bear any resemblance to the other Bollywood superhero franchise Krrish, Namit Malhotra, the global CEO of Prime Focus who is currently working on the film, aspires to take it to Hollywood standards. Namit has asserted that they wouldn’t be compromising on the scale since they want to make it in high quality wherein India is able to match up to the Hollywood superhero flicks that gain a lot of acceptance in the country.

On the other hand, Malhotra also spoke about releasing the film in 3D wherein he maintained that the film will be shot in a regular manner but the quality of converting it into 3D will be superlative. He also claims that the film will resonate with all age groups from six to 60.

Also co-starring Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan in lead roles, Ayan Mukerji returns with this action superhero drama after the success of his last film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani [2013]. The film that was supposed to go on floor this year had to face a few delays owing to the actors’ other commitments as well as the heavy VFX that the film demands. Now it has been pushed to early next year. Brahmastra is slated to release on August 15, marking the occasion of Independence Day, in 2019.

Aishwarya to play beautician Shahnaz Husain in a biopic

Posted on 03 November 2017 by admin

As per the latest report, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was approached to play the role of noted beautician Shahnaz Husain in her biopic. Apart from Ash, Priyanka Chopra was also one of the top contenders for the film but the makers might have zeroed upon the ‘Jazbaa’ actress.  Director Puja Bedi first wanted Priyanka to play the role but the actress is too busy with her Hollywood commitments.

However, Kamlesh Pandey, who is scripting the film, affirms that Aishwarya was the first choice for the film. He said in an interview that two other actresses expressed their desire to be part of the project. “But we want the tehzeeb and adab of the character to reflect in the actor’s DNA. The vocabulary certainly could not be that of the Facebook and Twitter generation. Aishwarya is perfect, keeping in mind all these prerequisites,” he said.

Director Puja Bedi went to Aishwarya with the script and she is yet to give her nod, as per reports, even Shahnaz Husain wants Aishwarya to play her role.

Pandey, who penned the script of Aishwarya’s comeback film ‘Jazbaa’, believes that the former beauty queen has lot of potential which Bollywood falied to discover yet. “Bollywood has been too preoccupied by Aishwarya Rai’s beauty to challenge the actor in her,” he said.

Posted on 25 October 2017 by admin

The ad shows Anushka dressed in a red lehanga attended a friend’s wedding with beau Virat Kohli dressed in a red sherwani. The wedded couple in the mandap were talking to each other and Virat says they might be discussing about the wedding vows right now.

The ace cricketer, pretending to be the groom remarks that he will cook for fifteen days in a month to which Anushka playing the bride says she will eat it without complaining about its taste.

The second vow was made by the ‘Sultan’ star. Anushka Sharma says she will keep all his secrets password protected and in turn the ace cricketer says he will never dare to change her and will accept her as she is.

Another vows being very funny, Anushka says she will allow Virat to win in a carrom game but only sometimes. Virat promises he will never watch the season finale of any television series without her. The sportsperson vows to stay fit forever only for her but with loads of love in her eyes and smile on face, Anushka replies, “Nahi bhi karoge toh chalega (even if you won’t, it will not bother me).”

Then, very innocently Anushka requests Virat not to call her with all those lovey-dovey names like baby, Shona, cutie etc which couples usually calls.

The last vow being the most precious the much-in-love couple looked straight into each other’s eyes and promised to take care of each other always.
