My Take on ‘Student of the Year’
An Fun, Timepass Movie[Not at all Meant to be Taken Seriously at all].
A Purr-fectly Nice Outing with your Teenage Friends.
Karan Johar does this Stuff
Superbly… Like Barjatya’s in
Modern Day World Mode[They themselves Failed with MPKDH] but No Beating Johar on this Terrain which is his Stronghold.
A More Controlled Budget and a 62cr wud have Guranteed a Superhit but Nonetheless it’s a Clean Success[Damn Happy for Dharma and KJo... LoL on those Haters of Johar Drama World].

After Cocktail, Deepika Padukone will be seen in yet another sizzling avatar in the upcoming Abbas Mustan film Race 2. The actress looks hot and stunning in a white gown with an Angelina Jolie-esque slit on the thigh.

Soon after the success of Vicky Donor, Ayushmann Khurrana had been signed by Kunal Kohli for a rom-com. However that project seems to have fallen apart now owing to differences between Ayushmann and Kunal.
Ayushmann claims that he had signed the film on the condition that he would be paired opposite an A-list actress. When Kunal later thought of casting some not-so established actresses, Ayushmann decided to opt out of the project irking Kunal no end.

YASH RAJ FILMS’ OFFICIAL STATEMENT:
Reproduced below is the official communication received by this writer from Yash Raj Films:
“YASH RAJ FILMS VINDICATED IN CASE FILED BY AJAY DEVGN FILMS
“8th November 2012: After the COMPETITION COMMISSION dismissed the complaint filed by AJAY DEVGN FILMS (ADF) on the basis that they were of the opinion that there was no contravention of the Act in this case, the COMPETITION APPELLATE TRIBUNAL, in a hearing today, also refused to pass any interim order against YASH RAJ FILMS (YRF) on the ground that the complainant had not put forward sufficient facts to establish that YRF had violated the Competition Act.
“We completely refute the press release put out by ADF as the Competition Appellate Tribunal did not find any merit in the contention of ADF because the Tribunal was of the view that ADF has totally failed to establish that the agreements entered into by YRF with the single screens cinemas would cause any appreciable adverse effect on competition. It was also noted by the Tribunal that YRF had announced the release of its film on 27th June 2011 with its announcement of the release of its film for Diwali 2012 and commenced booking of single screen theatres in June, July & Aug 2012. On the contrary, ADF announced the release of its film only on 29th May 2012 and approached the single screen owners only in October 2012 by which time YRF had taken a lead. It was expressly noted that the number of screens contracted for JAB TAK HAI JAAN, being far less than that of EK THA TIGER, prima facie no case of adverse effect on competition, much less appreciable effect on competition, was made out.
