Mumbai Police and Ajay Devgn join hands to combat serious crimes

Posted on 20 June 2017 by admin

Ever since the time Ajay Devgn played the no-nonsense Maharashtra Police in Singham, he became a role model for many. The impact of his role was so tremendous, that the Mumbai Police made him the brand ambassador for their ‘Jagrut Mumbaikar’ campaign, which took place a few years ago.

This time round, the Mumbai Police and Ajay ‘Singham’ Devgn join hands yet again. This time round, it was for an awareness programme targeting serious crime. Recently, Ajay Devgn launched a video from the Police Commissioner’s office in which he urged the citizens about safe banking. This was first in a series of the various videos which will be rolled out for the public service campaigns in order to spread awareness on tackling the rampant issue of fraudulent bank callers.

Speaking about the initiative, Ajay Devgn said, “I have been tracking Mumbai Police’s digital campaigns on Twitter. And, needless to say, I too, am amongst the millions who has been extremely impressed by it. I am humbled and honoured to extend my support to Mumbai Police to combat law and order issues of my city and country.

Saif Ali Khan is apprehensive of daughter Sara Ali Khan’s career in Bollywood

Posted on 20 June 2017 by admin

Just a week ago, filmmaker Abhishek Kapoor confirmed that Saif Ali Khan– Amrita Singh’s daughter Sara Ali Khan will be making her grand Bollywood debut opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in his next directorial, Kedarnath. The two had last week gone for Kedarnath darshan.

Even before her debut, it seems like Saif Ali Khan has some serious concerns about her career in the film industry. Speaking to a leading tabloid, a concerned dad Saif Ali Khan said that he is little nervous about his daughter’s upcoming debut. He said that fear was the something everyone in the industry has always faces as acting profession has never been a stable profession. He said that he wonders why his daughter would choose something like this after having studied abroad where she could have chosen a better work and lived in New York. He clarified that he doesn’t look down on the acting career but he knows it isn’t a stable relationship. He said that everyone who works in the industry lives in constant fear as there is no guarantee whether one will succeed in the industry even after giving their best.

Saif Ali Khan further added that this is not the life any parent would want it for their children. When asked about whether he was involved in Sara’s decision to choose her first film, he informed that he wasn’t. He, then, added that Sara could anytime come and talk to him about anything regarding films just like they talk about everything else.

Abhishek Kapoor’s film Kedarnath is slated to go on floors by the end of this year.

OMG! Katrina Kaif reacts to Fatima Sana Sheikh getting trolled on social media

Posted on 16 June 2017 by admin

With celebrities taking to social networking sites to keep in touch with their fans and followers, we have seen the rise of yet another segment of netizens, the social trolls. In fact, most celebrities have at some point in their online life faced criticism coming in from trolls who have not just the audacity but also the belief that they have the right to do so. Well the latest victim of the same was the Dangal actress Fatima Sana Sheikh who was trolled on social media after she posted an image of herself in a swimsuit.

While the trolls decided to attack Fatima citing her religion and the fact that the holy month of Ramzan is on, they admonished her on posting such images. Not stopping there some went to the extent of shaming the actress for her post. Though, Fatima hasn’t responded on the same yet, Katrina Kaif who was recently at the launch event of the latest track from Jagga Jasoos had a few words to say on the matter.

When quizzed on how one should react to such trolls Katrina said, “Honestly, my take on social media is that you should take the positivity, accept people’s opinions and just avoid the criticism, avoid the negativity. That is the simplest way I go about it, and that’s what you need to do.” Not ending there, Katrina Kaif went onto talk about the reason why she and so many others are active on social media saying, “You are on social media for the interaction you have with your well-wishers and your supporters, and sometimes you get good feedback and good information. And that’s what I think you should pay attention to.”

Jacqueline Fernandez to star opposite Salman Khan in Remo Dsouza’s untitled dance flick

Posted on 08 June 2017 by admin

Earlier this year, we had reported that choreographer turned director Remo Dsouza had achieved a casting coupe of sorts by roping in none other than Salman Khan to star in his next venture. If that wasn’t all we had also reported that apart from the film being a dance flick, it would also see Salman Khan playing father to a thirteen year old girl.

Well now we hear that Remo has roped in none other than Salman Khan’s Kick co-star Jacqueline Fernandez for the film. Confirming the same, Remo added, “Yes Jacqueline will feature in the film, and I have already commenced work on the same.” When we prodded Remo whether the said film would be the third instalment in the ABCD franchise, given the fact that it is based on dance, the director adds, “No the film hasn’t been titled yet but I can assure you that it isn’t ABCD 3. I will start work on ABCD 3 only next year. Right now I am working on this untitled venture with Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez.”

As for the yet untitled venture, we hear that the film will be a dance drama and will also see Salman Khan playing a professional dancer. Though currently Salman is working on his film Tiger Zinda Hai which is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, he has already commenced training for Remo’s venture. Produced by Salman Khan Films, Remo is looking to release the untitled film somewhere next year.

Vidya Balan to Copy Sridevi

Posted on 08 June 2017 by admin

Vidya Balan is a fantastic performer but not exactly a great dancer. So why would she attempt to recreate an iconic dance number by an actress who was known for her dancing skills? Well, it’s for a film, the actress is Sridevi and one hopes it gets a better response at the box office than some of Vidya’s recent movies!

Vidya will now be shaking a leg to Sridevi’s chartbuster Hawa Hawai from the 1987 blockbuster Mr India in her forthcoming film Tumhair Sulu, a slice-of-life entertainer by T-series, directed by adman Suresh Triveni.  The iconic number is being recreated by Tanishk Bagchi, whose recent transformations of Humma Humma and Tamma Tamma were big hits. The makers felt that instead of getting the track re-sung by a new voice, it would be wise to retain Kavita Krishnamurthy’s voice, as the track was synonymous with her unique vocals. Rajeev Surti will choreograph the celebratory track in June.

Says Triveni, “I am elated to have such a cult number in the film. It plays a key role in the film and is not just a remix for the end credits. Our intention is to pay a true tribute to the original and revive it in its full glory. I am looking forward to the flower power team of Vidya and Neha (Dhupia) to break a leg.”

Do you think Vidya can do justice to such a famous and much-loved song?

“Tumhari Sulu” opens worldwide on December 1.
