Amitabh Bachchan and Rajinikanth can’t be compared: Dhanush

02/Feb/2015  //  225 Viewers

‘You don’t compare legends’ – is a famous saying and South superstar Dhanush reiterated it in his own way at the promotional event of his upcoming movie ‘Shamitabh‘ in New Delhi. 

Starring alongside megastar Amitabh Bachchan is not a mean feat and if you are Rajinikanth’s son-in-law, the pressure adds. So when asked about whose voice is more powerful – Big B’s or Rajinikanth’s, pat came the reply, “I see no reason why that question should come up. I mean to say, you don’t compare between legends. It’s unnecessary.”

While ‘Shamitabh’ releases on February 6, Dhanush’ Tamil movie ‘Anegan’ is all set to hit the theatres on February 13. When asked about the hectic schedules he might have to follow for the promotional duties, Dhanush said, “It’s very different you see. For the Tamil movie, there are just 5 to 6 interviews, while for this one, there are 526 interviews. ‘Shamitabh’ is ona much bigger scale. So for now, I am focusing on it only. After February 6, that is when the movie releases, I’d fly to promote my Tamil movie.”

Dhanush plays a mute actor in ‘Shamitabh’, while Amitabh Bachchan becomes his voice.

Arjun Rampal: My wife is brutal in reviewing my films

Arjun Rampal: My wife is brutal in reviewing my films

02/Feb/2015  //  218 Viewers

Actor Arjun Rampal has a perfect partner in wife Mehr, who gives him “brutally honest” feedback on his movies.

Arjun, who is awaiting the release of ‘Roy’, which hits the theatres a day before Valentine’s Day, told IANS: “She (Mehr) is brutally honest sometimes…too brutal when it comes to reviewing (my) films.”

That’s also a reason why Arjun seeks her feedback.

“When you make a film, you get so close to it that it’s like your baby and your perception comes to an end. It’s nice to get a fresh and new outlook to it,” he said.

Arjun and Mehr were supermodels of their time. While Arjun moved into films, Mehr has stayed away. But if their daughters Mahikaa and Myraa wish to step into daddy’s shoes, why not, says Arjun.

“It’s their choice. I will not say ‘no’ because the film industry is a wonderful place. Acting is a wonderful profession, and if they want to do it, I will support them,” he said, and added that his daughters like to visit him on a film set sometimes to see what goes behind the making of a movie.

“Both of them are quite intrigued by it. It feels good,” said the doting father, who believes parents should be friends with their children.

Talking about himself and Mehr, he said: “I don’t think any of us are strict. Today we have to be friends with our children because if you make an issue of something, then the children will do it. And if they start hiding things from you, things may get worse sometimes.”

Jacqueline Fernandez: 'Murder 2' opened doors for me

Jacqueline Fernandez: 'Murder 2' opened doors for me

02/Feb/2015  //  230 Viewers

Jacqueline Fernandez says she doesn't regret featuring in a bold film like 'Murder 2' as the Mohit Suri directorial gave her lots of opportunities in the film industry.

"I don't regret doing a film like 'Murder 2'. It was my first hit. I had the experience of working with Mohit. It opened lots of doors for me. It was a risk that I had taken but there is a beauty in taking risks," Jacqueline, who made her Bollywood debut in 2009 with "Aladin", told IANS.

"We as actors have nothing to lose. People will remember your performance and you get signed based on your performance. Not because your film is doing well or not. I want to stick to being diverse, not playing safe," she added.

The former beauty queen, who will be soon seen with Ranbir Kapoor in 'Roy', says it's a dream to work with him.

"When you meet Ranbir, he is quiet. I feel he is shy. Once we started shooting, I realised his energy is great. I feel like he is actually talking to me and not saying his dialogues that makes me a better actress. For any actress, he is a dream to work with," she said. 
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to romance Fawad Khan in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil?

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to romance Fawad Khan in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil?

02/Feb/2015  //  253 Viewers

Bollywood latest heartthrob Fawad Khan seems to be on the wish list of many directors and the latest buzz has it that he will be seen romancing none other than Aishawarya Rai Bachchan in Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

Rumours are rife that Khoobsurat actor has been approached for the film, which also stars Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma.

Fawad, who is popular Pakistani actor, made his Bollywood debut opposite Sonam Kapoor in Khoobsurat and also bagged an award for the best debut (male). It seems his work has impressed Karan too and the actor has been approached for the film.  
 
While KJo decided to cast Ranbir and Anushka after he saw their chemistry in Bombay Velvet, he admitted he has always wanted to work with Aishwarya Rai - right from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham to Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. The three said yes to the project immediately.

Johar, famous for directing teeny-bopper romance is treading on a different path with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, an unconventional love story. "It's a film that dwells deeply on relationships, heartbreaks and how love completes you, defines you and yet leaves you wanting for more. I have never had, in my entire career, a film that has come to me so fast, so organically and so from within," he added.

It is for the first time that Aishwarya Rai and Anushka Sharma will share the screen space, wherein the latter will play the lead actress in the film.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil is set to release on 3 June 2016. The film will be a love story and is expected to be shot in New York, Paris and parts of New Delhi.

Box office collection: Khamoshiyan mints Rs 6.67 crore, Ayushmann Khurrana’s Hawaizaada fails to get cash registers jingling!

Box office collection: Khamoshiyan mints Rs 6.67 crore, Ayushmann Khurrana’s Hawaizaada fails to get cash registers jingling!

02/Feb/2015  //  265 Viewers

Apart from these two films, Manish Gupta’s Rahasya also hit the screens last Friday. However, only Khamoshiyan has managed to fare decently at the ticket windows till now…

Gurmeet Choudhary, Ali Fazal and Sapna Pabbi starrer Khamoshiyan released alongside Ayushmann Khurrana’s big budget film Hawaizaada last week. While the latter has failed to impress the critics and audience, the former is doing well at the box office in comparison. Manish Gupta’s murder mystery Rahashya also came out on the same day but it has hardly made any money at the BO.

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh wrote on the popular social networking site Twitter a while back, “#Khamoshiyan Fri 1.92 cr, Sat 2.21 cr, Sun 2.54 cr. Total – 6.67 cr. India biz.” Now that figure isn’t really bad considering Khamoshiyan doesn’t star a popular face. Also, this film has been made on a budget of Rs 11 crore and the makers have already collected Rs 7.5 crore through satellite and music rights which means Khamoshiyan will turn out to be a profitable project.

As for Hawaizaada, well, Ayushmann starrer has raked in around Rs 2 crore over the first weekend. That’s according to a trade portal. However, the official figures are yet to be disclosed. On the other hand, Kay Kay Menon and Tisca Chopra’s Rahasya failed to make any impact at the box office.

Kumkum Bhagya: Will Pragya help Abhi marry Tanu?

Kumkum Bhagya: Will Pragya help Abhi marry Tanu?

02/Feb/2015  //  220 Viewers

For days now Pragya has been trying her level best to express her love to Abhi, but nothing seems to give her the confidence

In the recent episodes of Kumkum Bhagya, we saw how Pragya (Sriti Jha) is mustering up her courage to propose Abhi (Shabbir Ahluwalia). Well it is obvious, she is never going to say it in time. And with the entry of Tanu’s (Leena Jumani) parents, there is little doubt left.

Tanu has given Abhi an ultimatum to marry her or else she will leave him forever, and Abhi is worried about how his grandmother will react to this piece of news. Abhi decides to take Pragya’s help to marry Tanu, but little does he know that his contract wife has actually fallen in love with him.

From what we hear, just when Pragya is about to tell Abhi of her feelings, he will request her to unite Tanu and him. This will disappoint Pragya, who will silently agree to help for his sake. With that, Bulbul’s (Mrunal Thakur) plans to marry Purab (Arjit Taneja) after the union of Abhi and Pragya will obviously go down the drain.

Did Badlapur create a rift between Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt?

Did Badlapur create a rift between Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt?

02/Feb/2015  //  255 Viewers

Varun Dhawan opened up in an interview recently about how his upcoming film changed a lot in his personal relationships…

Varun Dhawan seems like an upbeat actor who loves playing the happy guy on screen. But in a recent interview to DNA, he revealed that he had got sick of playing happy characters in films and that Badlapur gave him a release where he could portray darker emotions. It would be wrong to assume that Badlapur didn’t affect Varun after the cameras would stop rolling. Even when Varun would stop shooting, he would continue thinking about Raghu, his character in Badlapur. Consequently, that changed a lot in his personal life as well.

Talking about how the Sriram Raghavan film affected his relationships Varun said, “That phase (of shooting Badlapur) changed my friendship and equation with everyone, not just Alia. That is the price I had to pay to do this film. I actually have lost touch with lot of my school friends. I missed a close friend’s wedding and he really got upset.. There have been many casualties in terms of my personal relationships with a lot of people. Now, obviously, people who are from the industry will speak more about it, but my actual closest friends are not from the industry. So I will mend those relationships first and then think about the others. I don’t think anyone is upset with me and even if they are they should go watch Badlapur!”

At the Life OK Screen Awards recently, Varun gave Alia the cold shoulder and went up to her current flame Sidharth Malhotra to hug and greet him instead. Post their break-up, Alia and Varun haven’t exactly been on good terms with each other. About the episode, Varun revealed, “I was on the stage, I noticed Sidharth because clearly he’s taller and I could spot him easily. But let me tell you very honestly that when I was doing Badlapur, I didn’t speak to anyone. I was shooting it till December-end and during that time I cut off from everyone including my parents.”

Clearly it was one bitter break-up, Alia and Varun’s. But we just hope that the two actors find it in themselves to move on and work with each other in the future!

Here’s why there won’t be any ‘TAMASHA’ between Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif in Delhi!

Here’s why there won’t be any ‘TAMASHA’ between Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif in Delhi!

02/Feb/2015  //  247 Viewers

We hear Ms Kaif is going to drop by on the sets of Tamasha to meet her beau. Yes, Ms Padukone will also be present as well but we give 5 reasons why there won’t be any friction if Kat and Deepika bump into each other…

That Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone have teamed up yet again for a film is known to all. The two are currently in Delhi shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s next directorial venture Tamasha which is scheduled to release during Christmas this year.While Jr Kapoor has been asked to stay away from the sets of Fitoor in Kashmir, he is going to meet his ladylove anyway. We say so because the Dhoom:3 babe is apparently planning to visit RK in the capital city. Well, if that happens then chances are she may cross paths with Ranbir’s co-star Deepika as well. While media has always tried to pit these two B-town beauties against each other, here’s why I think there is no roam for any kind of tamasha between Katrina and Deepika, even if they come face-to-face…

Yes, Ranbir and Deepika were in a relationship but that was long back and both of them have clearly moved on. While RK and Fitoor heroine have been living together for a while now, DP is serious about Ranveer Singh. So there is no reason to be insecure or jealous, right?

We can’t remember Deepika and Katrina ever being spotted together. However, they have always been cordial to each other whenever they have turned up for social events. And that says a lot about what sort of equation these two actresses want to keep with each other.

Also, remember how the Piku actress had wished Katrina happy birthday on Twitter last year? Now that surely doesn’t mean Dippy and Ms Kaif are friends but at the same time it show they aren’t jaani dushman as well.

And this won’t be the first time that KK would drop by on the sets of Tamasha to meet her boyfriend. Last year, the leggy beauty zoomed off to Corsica where Ranbir and Deepika were filming for Tamasha. Nothing happened back then so we are sure nothing would happen this time too!

Lastly, even Ranveer and Ranbir share a cordial relationship which just shows that no one is stuck in the past and they all very well know how to handle their personal lives. One more thing, why do we start jumping every time there is something written about Deepika and Katrina but hardly make noise when we hear about Ranveer and Ranbir? Strange considering they all are connected!
