MUMBAI: The Competition Appellate Tribunal has issued notice for enquiring into the anti-competitive activities of YRF blocking theatres for release of ‘Jab tak hai jaan’ during Diwali while releasing ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ during Eid.
In a statement, Ajay Devgn Films said the Tribunal ‘has seen merit in our case’.
The Competition Appellate Tribunal did not provide an interim relief, ADF said, “In view of YRF’s own statement that only 821 theatres which have already executed agreement with it for showing Jab Tak Hai Jaan on Diwali in comparison to 1407 single screens for Ek Tha Tiger.”
This leaves the balance screens which have not executed agreements with YRF to show “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” till date to be free to exhibit “Son of Sardaar” without any tie in arrangement of YRF. This would include 586 single screens which had earlier shown “Ek Tha Tiger”.
Yash Raj Films vindicated in case filed by Ajay Devgn Films
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 …
The stars met up with the locals there, and seemed to have a good time.
Not to be bogged down by the failure of her last film Joker, Sonakshi Sinha is eagerly looking forward to the release of her next, Son Of Sardaar. The actress says she plays a vibrant and colourful character in the film.
After two back-to-back hits – Dabangg and Rowdy Rathore – Sonakshi Sinha’s Joker failed to set the cash registers ringing. But the actress is unperturbed and says she handles both success and failure in the same manner.

The truth shall prevail. Haven’t we heard the adage. It seems to hold true even in the makeshift field of glitz n glamour. Yes. Remember the Shah Rukh Khan-Priyanka relationship? How their off-shoot acts that salivated movie buffs for some time quietly faded away to the backstage once the duo screamed ‘friendship’.
Well, just as we settled in to believe them, and shoved away all news as rumours, in comes their barrage of tweets, revealing the duo are, indeed, ‘great actors’ [pun intended].
Read on… below is a list of SRK-Chopra ‘friendship’ tweets
When Priyanka’s movie ‘Teri Meri Kahaani’ was due to be released SRK wished her good on Twitter. “All the best @priyankachopra for TMK. Working so can’t make it to Premier.Will catch it later if i can get tickets! It’ll be huge InshaAllah.”

Priya Gupta (BOMBAY TIMES; November 11, 2012)
Asin, 27, is culturally rooted in Kerala but is equally comfortable speaking Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil or English. Even though she was born in a conservative Roman Catholic Christian family, she grew up in a cosmopolitan Navy public school in Cochin, which she calls mini-India. Even though she scored over 90 per cent in her 10th board exams, she took up Humanities in the 11th, shocking her family who were confident she would take up science and get into the civil services. Being photogenic, she started modelling for ad campaigns and did her first Malayalam film at the age of 15. By the time she got to college, she had done five films in the South and had bagged her first Filmfare award.

Parineeti has got herself a hero albeit for the camera. After dropping Shahid Kapoor from his next with Yash Raj Films, Maneesh Sharma has finalised his male lead. Apparently, after a lot of thinking, the makers have decided to go with a young and fresh talent, namely Sushant Singh Rajput.
It’s “redundant and silly” to reduce film-making to number crunching, Khan says. “The only thing that was enigmatic about a film was that you asked 10 people about it and they had 10 different opinions. Numbers are given to make …
Actor-producer Ajay Devgn has lost the first round of his battle with YRF when the Competition Commission of India (CCI) rejected his plea alleging Yash Raj productions of monopolistic practices.
With just three days left for the release of “Son of Sardar” and “Jab Tak Hai Jaan”, Ajay has approached the Appellate Tribunal to fight for his rights.
“We are shocked by the rejection of our legitimate case by the CCI. We have approached the Appellate Tribunal against the order,” a spokesperson of Ajay Devgn Films said in a statement.
Both “Son of Sardar” and “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” are releasing on the same day and advance booking of the films have already begun. Ajay has accused Yash Raj Films, producer of “Jab Tak Hai Jaan”, for allegedly using its dominant position in the film industry.
If not then why they are not releasing any dialouge promo. It mean just 4 days left to release and no dialouge promo. So far i can trust Father-Son duo’s movies for thier music and some meaningful dialouge but in JTHJ case music is dud (for me ofcourse) and there are no dialouges. So what i get so far prom the promos of JTHJ.
First plus point
1- First promo with adi’s poem is high point.
2- SRK is not looking old in london part and looking dashing as army main. (Army dress is lucky for him be it tele serial Fauji, MHN, V-Z)
However, at KoiMoi.com we would like to give attention to the leading ladies too and call them the ’100 crores Bollywood Girls’ as we feel they have their own little contribution to these 100 crore club movies as well.
Stated below is the list which mentions the names of leading ladies in each of the ’100 crore club’ movies and we would like to summarize which lady ( irrespective of performance) has maximum 100 crores in her kitty. It may be true that their contribution is not much to the below listed movies. But Katrina Kaif in Ek Tha Tiger, Asin in Ghajini, Priyanka Chopra in Barfi! and Kareena Kapoor in Golmaal 3 have given decent noteworthy performance.
Kareena Kapoor and Asin both have 4 movies each in this club. However, Kareena can be ranked on No. 1 position as 3 of her movies are in the Top 5 position in the given list. Moreover, 3 Idiots is the only 200 crore movie in India Box Office till date.
Ranbir Kapoor, who completed five years in Bollywood, rates his journey as “wonderful”.
Ranbir made his debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Saawariya’ in 2007. Though the film failed at the box office, it did not stop Ranbir, who went on to give power-packed performances in ‘Wake Up Sid’, ‘Rocket Singh’, ‘Rajneeti’ and the recent ‘Barfi’.
“Today I have completed five years in the industry. ‘Saawariya’ came and went in a day while ‘Barfi’ ran for several days. The journey has been good and wonderful,” Ranbir told reporters.
“I want to do more films and more exciting characters. I am looking forward to doing good work. It feels great to be here. I feel I have got lifetime achievement award,” he added.
Ranbir launched DVD of ‘Barfi’, directed by Anurag Basu, and starring Priyanka Chopra and Ilena D’cruz along with him. The film has been sent as India’s official entry for Oscars in the best foreign language film category.
Sometimes, life does give you second chances. US President Barack Obama’s re-election for another term is a great example. In Bollywood too, it takes more than once-a-star status to make a comeback and sustain it.
Senior film journalist Rauf Ahmed says, “Actors need to realise that in the
time that they’ve not been around, the audience has changed. They can’t start from where they left off. When Amitabh (Bachchan) made his comeback, he couldn’t have returned as the angry young man.” The kind of role that the actor makes a comeback with, then, becomes important. He says, “Madhuri (Dixit) made a mistake with her comeback. But Sridevi was smart in choosing a film where she could play her age.”
Here’s looking at the five actors who’ve played the game well. Also, ad-man Pralhad Kakkar tells us what it will take for each actor to sustain their position in the industry.
Comeback: Wanted (2009)
After a string of flops, Wanted catapulted Salman back to the top of the box-office. Since then, every film he’s touched — Dabangg (2010), Ready (2011), Bodyguard (2011) and Ek Tha Tiger (2012) — has turned to gold. He is hailed as the biggest superstar today.
Director Reema Kagti, who has teamed up with Aamir for her second film ‘Talaash’, has rubbished reports that she and the actor had creative differences while working on the film.
`”There were no creative differences … There was no interference from him but yes there were lot of inputs. But he never stepped on my toes, he never forced me,” Reema said in an interview here.
“From the time Aamir has come on board he has been very helpful from taking this script to making it into a very good film,” she said.
Though its a first where Reema is directing Aamir, but she has been an assistant for his films like ‘Lagaan’ and ‘Dil Chahta Hai’.
It’s sad news for the comedy and parody lovers of Pakistan and India.
An actor who doesn’t have large number of fans such as Bollywood’s Aamir Khan and Salman Khan but he parodied them in such a brilliant way that some rated him even better than the Khans.
Pakistan’s stage comedian and parody filmmaker Muhammad Sikandar – who shot to fame when he acted in two famed parody movies of Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg 2′ and Amir Khan’s ‘Ghajini 2′ – passed away a day ago due to liver cancer.
Muhammad Sikandar’s – popularly known as Sikandar Sanam – was considered a pioneer in parody movies and his ‘Dabangg’ and ‘Ghajini’ act were appreciated and loved both in Pakistan and India.
As a matter of fact, Salman Khan is said to have watched Sanam’s parody and really liked and appreciated the movie and Sanam’s acting abilities.
A few weeks back Salman Khan was called ‘a serial woman-beater’ by ‘Bigg Boss’ house inmate Sapna Bhavnani. While Sapna’s statement didn’t go down well with Salman’s supporters, cartoonist Aseem Trivedi wasn’t deterred from echoing Sapna’s opinion. Post his eviction, Aseem spoke about the actor’s misbehavior.
And now it is Sonakshi Sinha who has confirmed Salman’s legendary rage. While speaking to a website, Sonakshi said if she ever addressed her male co-stars like Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn as ‘Uncle’, she would be slapped!
Sonakshi had earlier made headlines when she was missing at the screenings which Dabangg Khan held for “Ek Tha Tiger”.
If the source’s version was anything to go by, Salman had got to know that Shotgun junior was discussing the going-ins for his forthcoming film with other people in the industry, which is obviously not acceptable. The source had said, “Ever since Salman Khan realised that Sonakshi Sinha had been filling in with the details of their film’s going-ons to other Bollywood folk, he has been irked. He felt she should not be gossiping about him to others. Also, of late there has been all the talk about how lucky she has been for Akshay Kumar. This further added to the growing distance between them.”
Just how many screens is SOS getting, as compared to JTHJ?
