He explains, “There is some pain when the hand is at a particular angle. So I have it wrapped to avoid as much movement as possible. It is more an annoyance than anything else.” Tiger Shroff who has gone through his share of injuries during the shooting of action sequences says it is tough for an actor to draw the line between safety and recklessness when doing a dangerous stunt. “You want it give it your best. So you keep pushing yourself. Aur thoda aur thoda… It gets riskier and riskier. Sometimes you miscalculate the level..

In 2017, Kangana Ranaut had expressed her wish to foray into production and had subsequently bought property in Pali Hill for her studio, Manikarnika Films. However, she appeared to have hit the pause button on the plan thereafter. Now, Ranaut — more experienced after her successful foray into direction with Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi — has fast-tracked her production dreams. The new year will start with the actor-director throwing open the doors of her studio in Khar. "My office will be ready by January. Simultaneously, we are readying our projects. There are so many good scripts that come my way and the [makers] want me to feature in them. But there is so much new talent that needs to be given a platform. It’s important that these powerful scripts don’t get lost and make it to the big screen," says Ranaut. Her business acumen comes to the fore as she quickly does a round of number-crunching and explains why she will test the waters with small-budget film..

Following months of speculation, it appears that Yash Raj Films has finally decided to go forward with the second instalment of Bunty Aur Babli, the 2005 hit that featured Rani Mukerji, Abhishek Bachchan and Amitabh Bachchan. Shaad Ali, who helmed the original, will return for the second part. Though the cast is yet to be finalised, it has been heard that Gully Boy discovery Siddhant Chaturvedi aka MC Sher and Janhvi Kapoor are the frontrunners for the movie. A source reveals, "Though Ishaan Khatter was initially considered for the male lead, he has allotted bulk dates to Mira Nair's A Suitable Boy. Since the makers want to roll with Bunty Aur Babli 2 before year-end, they are in talks with Siddhant. The actor will wrap up the shoot of Inside Edge's latest season, post which he can work on the comedy. If Janhvi comes on board, she is likely to squeeze in the project between Dostana 2, and Takht, which rolls in February-end. The two have yet to sign on the dotted line."

Breaking: Release of SS Rajamouli’s directorial RRR postponed

8 hours ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Rajamouli’s eagerly-awaited post Baahubali project strangely entitled RRR is delayed. The film which was to be released in July 2020 is now likely to be released in January 2021 for Pongal. A source close to the development explains, “There are two very busy Telugu superstars (NTR Jr and Ramcharan Teja) whose dates have to be co-ordinated. And there are two extremely busy Bollywood stars Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn who are also part of the cast. Getting their dates synchronized is taking more effort than Rajamouli had imagined.” However another source in the know says there is another relevant reason for the release delay. “Raja Sir has decided to add more action sequences to the film. These would be very hi-tech not seen before kind of stunts featuring Ram, NTR Jr and Devgn. Raja Sir wants the stunts to be better than what we saw in Baahubali,” says the source.

Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar and Ananya Panday unveiled the first look of Pati Patni Aur Woh on Tuesday. While the film was initially touted to be a remake of the Sanjeev Kumar, Vidya Sinha and Ranjeeta starrer by the same name, director Mudassar Aziz believes his offering is markedly different from the original as relationships have undergone a sea change in the four decades that separates the two movies. "Modern-day relationships are based on different value systems. Hence, we turned things around on the concept level itself and re-wrote the plot. Our film shares nothing with the original other than its title and logline."
