I don’t want to mention the reason because there are multiple ..

WAIT, WHAT: Akshay Kumar-starrer Laxmmi Bomb to release just TWO WEEKS AFTER Sooryavanshi?

yesterday  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Akshay Kumar fans got a nice surprise today which has uplifted their mood for the weekend. The superstar shared the first look of his upcoming film Laxmmi Bomb on his social media handles. It’s quite unconventional and different and has immediately become a talking point. It shows Akshay applying kajal and is sync with the story of the film, that is, the protagonist getting possessed by a transgender ghost. The poster also mentions the date of release – June 5, 2020! And this particular information has led to a lot of confusion. After all, Ramzan Eid falls two weeks before, around May 23 or 24. And Akshay’s other film, the much awaited Rohit Shetty directorial, Sooryavanshi is scheduled to release at this time. So assuming Sooryavanshi releases on Friday May 22, Laxmmi Bomb will hit cinemas after 15 days of the former! And obviously, that’s too small a gap between two significant releases. Akshay Kumar has always had multiple releases in a year but he makes sure to space out the films..

2 days ago  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Karan Oberoi, who has been associated with the Band Of Boys, was arrested this month for alleged rape and blackmail. In a shocking turn of events, Karan was accused by a woman he was in a relationship since 2016 of rape and blackmail. Karan was nabbed by the police as soon as these charges were confirmed. After being held, his lawyer appealed to the court for Oberoi’s bail. He also submitted text messages as proof which highlighted that the complainant too was indulging Oberoi by sending him nudes. Despite the picture and text message proof, court REJECTED Karan Oberoi’s bail plea. Additional Sessions Judge S Baghele turned down the actor's bail plea. Following this, Oberoi’s counsel has claimed that the complainant’s allegations were false and that they would appeal to High Court for the bail now. Karan’s counsel has further alleged that Karan met the victim through a dating app and she tried to seduce the Band of Boys member by sending nude photographs.

yesterday  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Hrithik Roshan starrer Super 30 has been in the headlines for a while now. While the film was supposed to release in January this year, it was pushed to July 26 due to pending post-production work. With the actor looking forward to the release, the film once again got pushed ahead to avoid the clash with Kangana Ranaut starrer Mental Hai Kya. The two stars have been at loggerheads for a while and the clash increased a lot of tension. So, the makers decided to push the release. Now, it seems like Super 30 makers are looking for August 2019 release. According to sources, “Super 30 will release in August. The makers are eyeing for either 2nd or 9th August as the dates but do not want to rule out even Independence day weekend as well. The final call for the date will be taken next week. If the makers go ahead with Independence Day weekend release, then Super 30 will face off not one but two films at the box office.

Anurag Basu directorial Life In A… Metro’s sequel to be titled Ludo?

yesterday  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
Life In A… Metro was a 2007 film directed by Anurag Basu. The movie’s plot revolved around 9 lives that were somehow intertwined with each other. Starring actors like Dharmendra, Shilpa Shetty, Kangana Ranaut, Irrfan Khan, Sharman Joshi, and Konkona Sensharma among the others, the movie did not really fare well at the box office. However, the music that was given in the film was and still is one of the most appreciated albums. The makers have been in talks for the sequel of this film since a very long time and the movie even went on floors a few months ago. The star cast as of now consists of Fatima Sana Shaikh, Rajkummar Rao, Abhishek Bachchan, Sanya Malhotra, Pankaj Thripathi, and Aditya Roy Kapur among the others. The tentative release date of the film is January 24, 2020 and there might be a chance that it will be titled Ludo. There have been no confirmations as to what the final title will be and this being a tentative one, we wonder how the storyline will pan out for this. The m..

Sunny Deol DENIES plans for Gadar 2

yesterday  
Movies / Bollywood Hungama/ Bollywood News  
There were  reports recently  suggesting that Anil Sharma was  planning a sequel to his 2002  mega-hit Gadar: Ek Prem Katha the pre-partition love story about an Indian Sikh following his  lady-love into Pakistan  after  India  was divided  into two. The film broke many box-office records and went on to become the most successful film  of Sunny Deol’s career. Now 17 years later the Indian entertainment media suddenly woke up to talks of a sequel to the film. This sounded far-fetched as the concept is a bit dated.  Back then talk about Indo-Pak amity was encouraged on every platform including cinema where cross-border love stories like Gadar and Veer-Zara were big box-office successes. Who would attempt something suggesting a love relationship across the border during these times of cross-border terrorism? Not Sunny Deol, for sure, as he is currently  fighting election on  a  BJP  ticket. When I asked Sunny about Gadar 2 he laughed, “I don’t have time to think of any films right now.I ..
