If all had gone well, Kartik Aaryan would have followed up his Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety success with a Karan Johar film.

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..

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Not many people know this. But Arjun Kapoor is  Katrina Kaif’s rakhi-brother, hence he has been given the license to pull her shapely legs as and when he wants to. The latest example of sibling ribbing is Arjun’s comment on Katrina’s picture looking as if she has dandruff in her hair. While this relationship of bantering between the adoptive siblings has its blithe side there is the other less appealing side to Katrina’s sisterly affections for Arjun. She has decided she cannot ever be paired with Arjun as a romantic lead, no matter how strong the part. Says a source in the know, “The day Katrina adopted Arjun as her rakhi-brother it was decided they’d never be paired together on screen, no matter how tempting the role, unless they play siblings on screen, which is unlikely. Katrina has  made it very clear she won’t romance her bhaiyya on screen.” So here is one Jodi we will never get to see on screen.

Music Review: Soorma

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Music Reviews  
EXPECTATIONS A sports drama has its own limitations when it comes to music. Moreover, when the entire soundtrack is out barely a week before the film's release, it becomes even tougher for the visibility to be gained in the quickest possible time. Fortunately though, the credentials are impressive as Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy step in as a composer with Gulzar as the lyricist for the five songs that have been put together for Soorma. MUSIC Sukhwinder Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan come together for the celebration number 'Good Man Di Laaltain'. The core hook for the song does get the feet tapping. However beyond that there isn't much that one takes home as there isn't much of a recall value that is generated by the song. This one tries to merge traditional folk flavour with the modern side and it is primarily the energy factor that works to some extent. Shankar Mahadevan brings himself on board for 'Soorma Anthem' which basically tells the story of a man who fought against all odds ..

Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Movie Reviews  
An anonymous quote says “Willpower is like a muscle: The more you train it. The stronger it gets”. Yet, it is easier said than done, especially in cases when the whole world is asking you to give up or not try. But there are a rare breed of people who have managed to shun all these notions and achieve the impossible through their sheer will. One such legend is the Indian hockey player Sandeep Singh who got back on his feet after facing a shocking accident. The plot is very interesting and can turn out to be a great, inspirational biopic. So does director Shaad Ali manage to do justice to this exciting storyline? Or does he fail in its endeavour?
