Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
It’s official! JP Dutta’s next directorial, after Paltan, won’t be one (as is the filmmaker’s norm) but two – a biopic on Maharaja Ranjit Singh, whose Sikh Empire, ruled the northwest Indian subcontinent in the early half of the 19th century and the other one, a biopic set in Rajasthan.

Did Hrithik Roshan take a sharp dig at Kangana Ranaut’s nepotism debate?

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
The poster of Super 30 the film based on the life of Bihar’s iconic mathematician Anand Kumar declares, ‘Ab Raja Ka Beta Raja Nahin Banega’ (A king’s son will no more be a king). The catch line immediately revives Kangna Ranaut’s nepotism debate. Is this a deliberate attempt to play up the ongoing tussle between Kangana and Hrithik? The two have been at war ever since she insinuated an affair with Hrithik, a relationship that was stoutly denied by him. Making the war worse between the two is the fact that Hrithik’s Super 30 is scheduled to release on the same day (January 25) as Kangana’s Manikarnika. However with extra shooting and re-shooting of Manikranika going on, it seems unlikely that the film would release on January 25 as per schedule, leaving the field clear for Hrithik to claim the Republic Day weekend as his own. Incidentally last year Hrithik’s Kaabil had also released for Republic Day and father Rakesh Roshan intends to release the next instalment of Krissh for Republic ..

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Some epic experiences are never meant to be on the large screen. Jhansi Ki Rani has never yet made it to the large screen. And while the Ramayana has been rendered innumerable times on the large screen, the Mahabharat has never been a popular reference-point for the movie experience. This is why we were thrilled to the core when we heard of Aamir Khan’s plans to set aside five years of his life and career to make the Mahabharat in several parts for the big screen. Soon one heard that the plan of doing the mythological epic on the large screen with A-list stars was dropped and Aamir had decided to make the Mahabharat as a web series. But now even that’s been relegated to a no-no status, if reliable sources are to be believed. Says a source in the know, “After weighing all pros and cons, Aamir Khan has decided not to make the Mahabharat. For one it would willy-nilly become controversial. More importantly the scale on which he planned the project was commercially not viable. Also, settin..

Like many of his contemporaries, Ayushmann also undergoes extensive prep and research for each of his roles but the one he had to do for the Sriram Raghavan thriller, Andhadhun was a tad bit more owing to the difficulty level. The actor will be seen in the role of a blind pianist for the first time and he took it up upon himself to prepare for more than three months before he gave the first shot. “Ayushmann wanted to do justice to the character that his director had entrusted him with.
