With a worldwide collection of a whopping Rs. 550 crores, Sanju clearly became one of the biggest hits of 2018. This Ranbir Kapoor starrer was a biopic based on Sanjay Dutt with Raju Hirani as the director. The movie was appreciated by most of the audiences but was still labelled as a commercial one.

When asked about his views, Sanjay’s close friend, Mahesh Manjrekar pointed out a few valid points. The actor/director mentioned that Hirani had been quite successful in making the film a commercial one by looking at the numbers.

Rumour has it that Boman Irani, John Abraham and Akshay Kumar were also approached. We will have to wait for the announcement. The film is a sequel to the 1996 Tamil blockbuster. Recently, on the occasion of Pongal, filmmaker S. Shankar unveiled the first look poster of his next movie, Indian 2 featuring Haasan. Shankar shared the poster via a tweet and extended Pongal wishes to everyone. Via the poster, it was revealed that the project will go on the floors from Friday (January 18). As this is the actor's last film before he turns to politics, fans could not keep calm after seeing him as a vigilante again. Shankar added that he was thrilled to see Haasan sporting the look of the popular octogenarian character Senapathy, a freedom fighter-turned-vigilante bent on rooting out corruption.

Munisha Khatwani makes a comeback on TV after a decade. She features in the Manish Goyal and Juhi Parmar-starrer Tantra. The makers have named her socialite character Munisha as well. The actor, who is also a tarot card reader, is enjoying her new stint. It is a character role "but on the small screen even younger actors are playing roles of mothers," she says.

EXPECTATIONS Since Thackeray is a biopic, one basically expects situational soundtrack for the film which would basically glorify the subject in question, Balasaheb Thackeray. Composers Rohan-Rohan [Rohan Pradhan and Rohan Gokhale], who had earlier composed a couple of songs for Sanju [‘Main Badhiya Tu Bhi Badhiya’, ‘Bhopu Baj Raha Hai’] are the composers for Thackeray.

Moreover, the lead singer is just apt too, what with Sukhwinder Singh crooning the words written by Manoj Yadav. As expected, the song is all about glorifying Thackeray as the 'messiah' of the masses. Expect the song to arrive at a crucial juncture of the film's narrative and bring on the dramatic appeal. Next in line is 'Aaple Saheb Thackeray' which is written by Manndar Cholkar. This one is in fact a Marathi number and carries the signatu..
