If all had gone well, Kartik Aaryan would have followed up his Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety success with a Karan Johar film. Sources from Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions say Kartik had been called for a second lead in a film starring Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor Khan. However, Kartik’s over-zealous team sprang into action too quickly. Says the source from Dharma, “Kartik had been sent feelers from Dharma to meet for a possible role, nothing concrete. But his team messed it up by splashing the news that he had been signed by Karan Johar. No such thing had actually happened. As if this was not enough to piss off Karan, Kartik’s team also leaked out the false news that Kartik was going to be paired with Kareena Kapoor, when she was actually opposite Akshay in the film.” Unconfirmed sources from Karan Johar’s production house also claim that Kartik asked for far too much money. “He thinks he’s an A-list star now and should be paid accordingly.

Firstly, the myth about her first post-comeback Bollywood film, it was claimed that Priyanka was being paid Rs 12 crores for the Salman Khan starrer Bharat. “False,” says a source from the Bharat team. “In fact Priyanka generously offered to do the film for free. Bhai (Salman Khan) insisted on a token fee of Rs. 1 crore.” The new utterly ludicrous myth about Priyanka Chopra’s pay for her second post-comeback film to be directed by Shonali Bose goes like this: Priyanka won’t take any upfront payment for the project but will instead share in the profits.

30 Interesting quirks about the Rs. 100-crore films

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Features and Specials  
The Rs. 100 crore club (it began with Ghajini in Christmas 2008), which has crossed 65 films and is set to touch 70 films within a decade (hopefully, of course) has some quirks in its collection. 1. One such funny element is that the recent Race 3 is a film that, as per trade experts, cannot be categorized as either a hit or a flop. The producers (Salman Khan Films and Tips) are in huge profit overall, but distributors have lost fairly big money. So should it be called Loser, Break-even or Average? This conundrum seems to have little by way of a solution. 2. The narrowest miss in this list, ironically, is the very superior Race 2 (2013), which netted Rs. 93.49 crore in India. Saif Ali Khan has still to open his account here! 3. Padmaavat was the costliest Hindi film here with a production cost of Rs. 215 crore. 4. Most Shah Rukh Khan’s films here did far better business overseas, but despite that, RA.One (2011) was a clear loser. Shah Rukh also refunded distributors for losses suffere..

Despite rumours, father - daughter duo Saif Ali Khan - Sara Ali Khan not doing a film together

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Writers in search of enticing copies often come up with brainwaves that have no roots in facts. The latest such idle idol fantasy is the report that   filmmaker named Nitin Kakkad is planning to bring Saif Ali Khan and his daughter Sara Ali Khan together. A source close to Saif Ali Khan’s family pooh-poohs the very idea. “Is Saif nuts to work with his daughter when she’s just starting out? The comparisons would just kill Sara’s career. It would be a very long time before Saif agrees to share frame with his daughter. Anil Kapoor has agreed to come together with his daughter Sonam Kapoor (in Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga) after she has completed a decade in the movies. Perhaps, Saif too, will work with Sara after a decade, and that too if someone comes up with a worthy script.” It’s never a good idea for established actors to share screen space with their progenies. Not too many people know this but Sanjay Leela Bhansali had offered Khamoshi: The Musical to mother - daughter Dimple Ka..
