Aamir Khan’s epic dream for movie Mahabharat will leave you super excited

Posted on 01 February 2018 by admin

Everything about Aamir Khan is larger-than-life. With every project, he raises the bar for himself as a producer and as an actor. So much that his name has become the ISI mark of movies. You know when he signs a film, it’s gonna be worth watching. Also, when he shows an interest in a project, all ears perk up. That’s what happened when he expressed his desire to play the mythological character of Karan from the epic Mahabharat. Of course, he wondered whether he’d be the right choice for the role, given his physique.

His other favourite character, he once mentioned, is Lord Krishna. And when Baahubali director SS Rajamouli reportedly mentioned that he wanted to make Mahabharat next, everyone put two and two together. Of course, Aamir denied that Rajamouli had approached him. But he expressed his desire to play either one of these characters. He’s so consumed with the idea that he’s willing to pitch it to anyone, who shares his enthusiasm.

Ranbir Kapoor’s sister Riddhima gifts Abhishek a bracelet

Posted on 01 February 2018 by admin

Abhishek Bachchan gets a special gift from Ranbir Kapoor’s sister Riddhima Sahni. Riddhima, who is a jewellery designer gifted her good friend Abhishek Bachchan a ‘lucky charm’ bracelet. Abhishek saw Ranbir wearing the signature evil eye bracelet in his hand and he praised it so much that Riddhima gifted him one. It has been made in thread enamel and gold.

Midday quoted a source close to the Kapoor family as saying, “Ranbir and Abhishek are buddies. They look out for each other on the football field. In the past, Abhishek had revealed that he liked an evil-eye bracelet that Ranbir wears. Since Riddhima specialises in designing signature jewellery for men and women, she crafted one for him.”

Riddhima in turn confirmed the news and said, “Abhishek is the kindest, and most humble person I have met. I hope he enjoys wearing the bracelet.”

Earlier, Riddhima gifted Justin Beiber a bracelet when he visited India last year. She also designed a pair of earrings for Hollywood actress-director Goldie Hawn before that. Her brother Ranbir’s evil eye bracelet reportedly contains the actor’s lucky number 8.

Well, hope the ‘lucky charm’ bracelet proves luck for Abhishek Bachchan who is returning to the silver screen after a hiatus with Anurag Kashyap-Anand L Rai’s ‘Manmarziya’.

Parineeti Chopra flaunts stretch mark, netizens go gaga

Posted on 01 February 2018 by admin

In the morning, Parineeti Chopra took to her social media account to flaunt her stretch mark and netizens can’t stop praising the ‘Golmaal Again’ actress.  Dressed in a crop top and denim jacket, Parineeti Chopra proudly flaunts her stretch mark without photoshopping the mark.

She posted the picture with the caption, “Bright blue sunglasses for life!!! thanks @drishtiplatinum for these beautiess!!.”

The picture already earned 5 lakhs views in no time. Over the years, Parineeti Chopra worked very hard to shed her extra flab and gain a fit and well-toned body.

Talking about her weight loss, Parineeti had earlier told India Today that her goal was to be fit. “Fitness does not equal to (being) thin. You need to be your fittest self… I have been struggling with my weight for 12 years of my life. I couldn’t work for more than four hours. I was very big, a UK size 16. My heart and liver were taking a strain, I have an injured knee because of my weight. People don’t think of that,” she had said.

On the work front, after the success of Rohit Shetty’s ‘Golmaal Again’, Parineeti bagged a promising project ‘Kesari’ opposite Akshay Kumar and currently busy with ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’ and ‘Namastey Canada’ opposite Arjun Kapoor.

Sonam Kapoor to open standalone stores of her brand Rheson across the country

Posted on 04 January 2018 by admin

When Sonam Kapoor began her acting career in 2012, nobody thought that she’ll one day become the numero uno fashionista. The actress slowly and gradually showed that she stands out when it comes to her choice of clothes and the way she carries it. Since a long time, there were murmurs of she starting a clothing line. A few years ago, she unveiled that she along with her sister Rhea are indeed starting a fashion brand and it was named Rheson, after the names of the sisters. Finally, this year in May it had a grand launch.

Till now, the clothes of Rheson were available exclusively at Shoppers Stop outlets and its website. But now, Sonam is all set to launch a series of brick and mortar outlets to reach out to a wider audience. She said that she and Rhea had tied up with Shoppers Shop to enhance distribution. As a result, the clothes of Rheson were available in several places in India. But now, they plan to open standalone stores since that will give them direct access to customers.

A lot of companies are increasingly turning to the online space in order to increase their sales. Sonam Kapoor on the other hand is going the opposite way. But she believes that doing so will enable the brand to penetrate into different areas of the country. As of now, the plan is that the first Rheson store would be set up in Mumbai and then gradually, stores will be opened in other cities too.

And that’s not all. Sonam and Rhea Kapoor are all set to expand their collection. At present, they are selling women’s clothing and also bags. Now they plan to venture into menswear and accessories too. However, all the products of Rheson would be stylish and yet affordable since they want to target those who can’t afford expensive brand.

On the film front, Sonam Kapoor will be seen next in Veere Di Wedding which incidentally is produced by her sister Rhea. It also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania. Directed by Khoobsurat director, it’s all set to release on May 18, 2018.

Priyanka Chopra enacts a scene from Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

Posted on 04 January 2018 by admin

One of the greatest films to have come out from Bollywood is Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. Released in 1995, this romantic flick starred Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol and was Aditya Chopra’s directorial debut. It gave a lot of people relationship goals. Women especially fell with the film thanks to the character of Raj, played by Shah Rukh Khan, who goes all out to win the heart of Simran, essayed by Kajol, and also of her parents.

For actress Priyanka Chopra too, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge holds a special place in her heart. She revealed this when she appeared on the sets of the TV show ‘India’s Next Superstars’, hosted by blockbuster directors Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar. Everyone then expected that the romantic scenes or songs must be her favourite moments from the film. But however, she highlighted the lesser talked about sequence of Shah Rukh and Karan Johar (who was an assistant on the film and played a small role) going to Amrish Puri’s shop and SRK punching KJo. Priyanka Chopra insisted that Karan Kohar and Rohit Shetty recreate the scene with her. Both the judges obliged. Rohit Shetty portrayed the character of Puri, Karan Johar played himself while Priyanka Chopra stepped into Shah Rukh Khan’s shoes. Just like in the original scene, Karan got punched in the end but this time it was Priyanka Chopra who did the needful. After the recreation of the scene, Priyanka revealed that she always wanted to smack Karan Johar ever since she saw Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge and her wish finally got fulfilled on the sets of ‘India’s Next Superstars’.

Posted on 04 January 2018 by admin

Wedding bells of Varun Dhawan and Natasha Dalal could be heard soon. As per the latest report, the ‘Judwaa 2’ actor will tie the knot with his long-time girlfriend Natasha Dalal by mid-2018. Recently, Varun Dhawan has moved out of his parents’ house to his new plush apartment, the picture of his house-warming party already circulated on net in which Natasha was also spotted with Varun’s friends.

Natasha and Varun were childhood buddies and gradually their friendship culminated into love. They are very serious about their relationship and wished to take their relationship to the next level.

“Till recently, Varun swore he would never move out of his parents’ home. But Natasha made it clear that she wanted her own home with Varun after marriage. For a while, they even separated over the issue. But the actor gave in and moved into his own place. He still lives close to his parents’ house,” a family friend revealed.

Earlier this year, when Varun Dhawan was quipped about his wedding plans, he said, “Honestly, we have not thought that much ahead. Sometimes in life, when you find someone and that connection is formed, then everything else that you thought was the be-all and end-all of life, doesn’t actually matter.”

On the work front, Varun will be seen next in Shoojit Sircar’s ‘October’ and preparing for ‘Sui Dhaaga-Made in India’ opposite Anushka Sharma. The film is scheduled to release on Gandhi Jayanti 2018.

Surveen Chawla shares pic of her white wedding with Akshay

Posted on 04 January 2018 by admin

After two years, Surveen Chawla declared to the world that she is married to businessman Akshay Thakker. The ‘Hate Story 2’ actress shared a beautiful picture with her hubby and informed that she had a romantic Italian style wedding with Akshay on July 28, 2015.

In an interview with TimesofIndia she said, “Yes, I am married. I have known Akshay for long. It was a personal choice to not talk about the marriage. We wanted to break the news just before our Indian wedding, which was scheduled to take place this month. However, we had to postpone it to 2018, following a loss in the family.”

“In a quintessential Indian wedding, the couple is surrounded by guests. But we wanted the day to ourselves; the idea was to enjoy each and every moment with each other and with those who matter the most. Also, I always wanted a white wedding in a chapel located in a castle. Fortunately, Akshay shared the same dream and that’s how we zeroed in on a picturesque castle in Northern Italy. It took me six months to finalise the venue. Since I am a die-hard romantic, there was no other way I would have done it,” she said.

Surveen also revealed that she felt her announcement could have an impact on her career. “Initially, yes, as my films were up for release. But I soon crossed that bridge and realised that a talented actor will shine irrespective of her marital status. We need to take a cue from the West and get over such stigmas. International actresses go about flaunting their love life, marriage and babies without a care in the world. What matters is what I am doing on screen. Also, we suffered a personal loss and didn’t know how to go about announcing the wedding then,” she said.

The actress had posted an adorable white wedding picture with her husband on her Twitter page recently.

Surveen Chawla tweeted a beautiful picture of her white wedding with Akshay and captioned as# Our promises, Our Vows!!…. Our most prized possession…… Our Togetherness??????????#happilymarried #dreamwedding #love #eternalbliss #giveusyourblessings. Reportage Photography: @dsvisuals

She captioned another picture of her wedding as#“One half of me is yours,the other half yours, Mine own,I would say;but if mine,then yours, And so all yours.” -(The Merchant of Venice) Shakespeare Lots of ??Surveen & Akshay. #Happilymarried???? #Love #Bliss #Promiseforever Reportage Photography : @dsvisuals

Divisuals shared a picture of the white wedding picture of Surveen and Akshay and wrote#Akshay Thakker and Surveen Chawla are a young, irresistible Indian couple who chose to come to Italy for an unforgettable #wedding celebration, bringing along their closest relatives and friends from far away India. The #indian wedding reportage was made by the wedding photographers of our studio. The wedding had been organized according to the utmost luxury and elegance, however, what really impressed us were the uncontainable joy and the desire to dance of the spouses and the guests. After an intimate church ceremony and a sophisticated reception, the atmosphere exploded and was immediately filled with breathtaking dances and the irresistible harmony between the two protagonists of the day, and their thrilling friends.

Mouni Roy to feature in Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3 with Sonakshi Sinha

Posted on 28 December 2017 by admin

Earlier this year we had reported that popular television actress Mouni Roy would soon be making her big screen debut with the Akshay Kumar starrer Gold. Well, now we hear that Mouni has been roped in for yet another film that will see her sharing screen space with one of the three big Khans in Bollywood.

In fact, reports state that Mouni Roy will feature in the third instalment of the Dabanggfranchise. While Dabangg 3 has been confirmed to be on the cards, and that the said film will feature Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha, the addition of Mouni Roy does certainly come as a surprise.

This new addition to the cast of Dabangg 3 will certainly have Salman Khan fans jumping with joy. However, we await more details of the film that still has a long way to go before it goes on floor. In fact, going by the reports, work on Dabangg 3 will commence only after Salman Khan wraps the shooting of his other ventures Race 3 and Bharat.

Mallika Sherawat continues to confuse

Posted on 28 December 2017 by admin

From sneaking selfies with the likes of Barack Obama and Antonio Banderas to deriding the status of Indian women at a global forum…the lengths to which Mallika Sherawat has gone to keep herself in the news over the years is astonishing, not only for the sustained life-span of her delusional stardom, but also for the impact her attempts at self-promotion has had on sections of the media in India which continues to dutifully report her self-promotional misadventures.

The latest Mallika salvo is her denial of a BBC report claiming her French “Husband” and Mallika owe truckloads of money for their rented home in Paris.

Mallika Sherawat says she has neither a husband nor a home in Paris. If this is the case what was that about three armed men attacking her and her live-in partner at her apartment in Paris is November 2016?

Either she was lying then or she is lying now? Or maybe she was being far from truthful both the times? Who knows! Anything is possible with this delusional actress who came into the industry with a lie: that she was unmarried.

When in fact she had left a husband to pursue her dreams in Mumbai.

No harm in that except that the delusional attitude to her career has continued over the years. In Bollywood her attempts at stardom have been met with dismay and derision. Outside India her films like Hisss and Republic Of Love were never released in movie theatres.

Today Mallika Sherawat’s career is defunct and as good as dead. Her starrer Dirty Politics drove its producer-director K C Bokadia out of the Mumbai film industry. She had no success at the box office since Anurag Basu’s Murder. But she will find some way of being in the news, no matter what it takes.
