There was talk of Alia Bhatt stepping into Bhansali territory. And both the director and the actress were very keen on the creative alliance. But then, Karan Johar, who has always carried a chip on his shoulder regarding the epic vision of Bhansali’s cinema, decided to do a costume drama Kalank , a la Bhansali, for the first time. He naturally wanted Alia Bhatt to be part of his epic dream. Says a source close to the development, “Much as Alia would love to be a Sanjay Leela Bhansali heroine — and who wouldn’t want to work with the master creator? — her first priority is Karan Johar whom she considers a  father figure. The minute Karan initiated the Kalank project, Alia abandoned all plans to work with Bhansali, at least for now.” This is the second time things haven’t worked out between Alia Bhatt and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Varun Dhawan-Ranbir Kapoor competition Varun Dhawan is one of the safest actors, box office wise. One can call him a producer’s actor much like Akshay Kumar. He has not delivered a single flop till now and is going steady with his career. Though identified as a total commercial hero, he also makes an effort to mix genres and built a wholesome profile. After he made his debut with Karan Johar’s Student Of Year in 2012, he has appeared in gritty and dramatic films like Badlapur and October but also has entertained us with masala movies like Main Tera Hero, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Judwaa 2, Dilwale, among others. He is soon coming up with Sui Dhaaga with Anushka Sharma where he will be playing a small town weaver, Mauji. The film looks high on content and low on glamour.

Salman Khan gives the REAL reason for not doing DHOOM 4 and it has nothing to do with Abhishek Bachchan

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Salman Khan who will next be seen in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat was rumoured to be a part of Yash Raj Films’ successful franchise Dhoom 4 but the deal fizzled out because our sources exclusively informed us that he did not want to share a single frame with Abhishek Bachchan who has been a part of the franchise since day one. We all know Salman Khan and Abhishek Bachchan share a history and therefore understandably it is tricky to be paired with him in the film. But this does seem the only reason why Salman has walked out of the film because he spoke in a recent interview that he is not okay playing a villain on screen. Salman Khan further elaborated that masses blindly follow their heroes and judge them by their antics on screen. Therefore, he wants to be responsible enough and give a good message to his fans. He further explained that he does not want people to blindly copy him and indulge in wrongdoings. Earlier too he had addressed the criticism that he does not do enough meaningful ..
                 

Music Review: Batti Gul Meter Chalu

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Music Reviews  
EXPECTATIONS Earlier this year, Shahid Kapoor was seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat. On the other hand Shraddha Kapoor is currently been seen in Stree. None of the two films warranted that the two actors break into a Bollywood style song-n-dance affair. However, they would be pretty much looking at doing that in their next release together Batti Gul Meter Chalu which has multiple composers creating music with Siddharth-Garima taking of the lyrics department. MUSIC Shahid Kapoor gets into the 'Saree Ke Fall Sa' [R... Rajkumar] mode with 'Gold Tamba' which has been sung with aplomb by Nakash Aziz. With out and out 'tapori' lyrics at his disposal, composer Anu Malik lets his hair down for 'Gold Tamba' which is catchy to the core and makes you tap your feet instantly. A fun number all the way, it may be scoffed by the class audience but would be lapped up by the masses. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's 'Dekhte Dekhte' (which was written and composed by him) is recreated by R..

According to the actor, given the fact that social networking sites offer users a curtain of anonymity, certain users abuse this curtain to lash out and make derogatory remarks against others while relieving their frustration. In his view, it is such people who misuse the medium to abuse others that makes it rather unsavoury...
