yesterday  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Music Reviews  
EXPECTATIONS There are very good expectations from the music of Kabir Singh. After all, there are hardly any out and out love stories that are made in the current times and Kabir Singh has the kind of premise that could well be an ideal follow up to Aashiqui 2.

The Jayalalitha bio-pic which is now being toplined by Kangana Ranaut was first offered to Vidya Balan. She was apparently dropped from the project for “asking too many questions.” Yes, that’s right.

We, at Bollywood Hungama, are extremely sad to report that the veteran actor and director passed away this morning. There have been no reports regarding the cause of his demise and we are still awaiting the details. His recent role in Salman Khan starrer Tiger Zinda Hai had been widely appreciated by his fans and that was also his last on-screen appearance. He had also authored books like Tughlaq and Hayvadan. His contribution in both Kannada and Hindi industry has garnered him a lot of respect and appreciation. He had also been awarded by the prestigious Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan titles by the Government Of India. Even though his choice of language was Kannada, his plays were adapted in English and Hindi as well. Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Girish Karnad. The film industry truly lost a gem today...

Well, it seems that the Ek Villain cast of Riteish Deshmukh and Shraddha Kapoor are all set for a reunion and this time it is for the Baaghi franchise. While we earlier reported that the Baaghi cast of Tiger Shroff and Shraddha Kapoor will come together for the third instalment too, Riteish too is said to have joined the star cast for Baaghi 3 now.

While we all know about the comic timing of Riteish, rarely have we seen him in a full-fledged action-revenge drama. His association with this kind of genre will be unique and one will see him in a very d..

Even as the trailer of his release Super 30 has been greeted by tons of trolls and mounds of memes, news comes that Kaabil, Roshan’s home-production directed by Sanjay Gupta, has opened to abysmal footfalls in China, a market newly opened to Indian films.

Although Priyanka Chopra was very keen to work with Sanjay Bhansali again after Bajirao Mastani she has just lost the chance to do so. The reason, in two words, is Salman Khan. The minute he was signed as the lead for Bhansali’s next, Priyanka was out of the reckoning. By now everyone who subscribes to tinsel tattle knows the rather ugly history that Priyanka shares with the Khan superstar. For years after David Dhawan’s Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Salman refused to work with Priyanka (the film’s other hero Akshay Kumar also refused to work with her, but that’s another story). Their bridges were finally mended when Priyanka cajoled Ali Abbas Zafar, the director of the Salman starrer Bharat, to cast her opposite him in the film. After much persuasion Salman agreed….only for her to walk out of the film at the last minute. Laughs one of Salman’s closest buddies, “You think Bhai will ever work with her again? Not in this life. Bhansali had to choose between Bhai and Priyanka. And the choice is ..
                 

Delhi High Court rejects plea seeking stay on Salman Khan starrer Bharat

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Salman Khan starrer Bharat has created quite a buzz since it is the highly awaited release of the year. Recently, a PIL was filed in Delhi High Court to put an interim stay on the film. But the court rejected the public interest litigation. In a plea filed by petitioner Vikas Tyagi, he said that the movie’s name violates Section 3 of The Emblems And Names (Prevention Of Improper Use) Act, 1950. He claimed that as per section 3, the word “Bharat” cannot be used for commercial purposes. Justices JR Midha and Chander Shekhar said that the petition was filed to get benefit from the film. They even said that the PIL was premature since the petitioner had not watched the film and did not do his proper research. Also, the judges criticized the petitioner for circulating the PIL in media before filing it. Bharat is an adaptation of the Korean film An Ode To My Father. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the film stars Katrina Kaif, Jackie Shroff, Disha Patani, Tabu, Sunil Grover among others. It is ..

Karan Johar’s quickie scheme to reimburse Kalank losses

yesterday  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
The horror franchise which Karan Johar has kick-started with a bang by announcing Bhoot, is a loss-compensating strategy, meant to minimize the financial setbacks suffered by Johar and his Dharma Productions by the thundering debacle of Kalank. Says a source close to Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, “The failure of Kalank was horrific. The brainstorming tank at Dharma Production suggested the horror franchise entitled Bhoot. To be made under a very tight budget this series of films is expected to recover investments within the first three days of release and then make a small profit.” Signing Vicky Kaushal who is currently riding the crest of success is a masterstroke. And Kaushal is not expensive. Not as expensive as some Dharma actors like Shah Rukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor. Getting the title Bhoot from his arch-enemy Ram Gopal Varma was even more of a masterstroke. Apparently, Karan was reluctant to approach Varma with whom he has openly warred in the past on Twitter. However the te..

Ranveer Singh has excitedly spoken out about his fourth pairing with his wife Deepika Padukone for the sports film 83 as being the first where they both don’t die at the end. The three films they’ve done together earlier, all directed by the operatic maestro Sanjay Leela Bhansali were love tragedies. In Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmaavat both Deepika and Ranveer’s characters die at the end. But a source close to Bhansali’s tragic trilogy wonders how much of a role Deeepika would have in 83. “The film is about the Indian cricket team led by Kapil Dev winning the 1983 World Cup in England and Wales. How much of a role Deepika can have as Kapil Dev’s wife in a plot that is not devoted to Kapil’s off-field life?” wonders the source. Sources say after back-to-back author-backed roles in Ram Leela, Piku, Bajirao Mastani, Padmaavat and the forthcoming Chhapaak, Deepika was reluctant to step aside from centre stage to do 83. “She was in two minds, not sure she wanted to play a non-centr..

Akshay Kumar’s stunts in Sooryavanshi ups the Singham ante

6 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
The two most daring self-made action heroes of Bollywood are undoubtedly Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar. It, therefore, comes as no surprise to know that Akshay Kumar has decided to take the action in his forthcoming khaki actioner, Sooryavanshi  a level above what Ajay Devgn has achieved in the same director Rohit Shetty’s Singham. Says a source, “Akshay had a series of meetings with Rohit Shetty about the action. The only way it made sense to do one more cops franchise under Shetty’s direction was to give the audience the kind of action they had not seen before.” Since comparisons with Singham are inevitable, Akshay will be attempting the kind of stunts that the audience has not seen Ajay Devgn do in the Singham franchise, or Ranveer Singh in Simmba. “It isn’t an attempt to be one-up .It’s just to keep Rohit Shetty’s cop universe updated and on its toe,” says a source in the know.

Dabangg 3 will miss Vinod Khanna, rumours of Dimple Kapadia’s return untrue

8 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Dimple Kapadia’s return to play Salman Khan’s mother in Dabangg 3 is the stupidest rumour we’ve heard in recent times. It seems the person who started this rumour has no idea of how the plot of the film moved. “How can Dimple Kapadiaji return in Dabangg 3 when her character died in the first Dabangg film? We don’t know where these rumours come from. But they make no sense. No, we don’t plan to resurrect Naini Devi (Dimple Kapadia’s character) from the dead,” says a core member of the Dabangg team. However a hunt is on to find a new actor to play Salman Khan’s father Prajapati Pandey after the untimely demise of Vinod Khanna who played the patriarch in both Dabangg and Dabangg 2. I have reason to believe that Salman wants Dharmendra to play his father’s role in Dabangg 3. Apparently after Vinod Khanna, Dharmendra whom Salman openly idolizes would be a perfect fit for the role. Whether the veteran actor would want to step into Vinod Khanna’s part or not at this juncture, is a debatable ..
