Highest Earning Stars in movies(2012) and Income Tax given by Top Bollywood Actors in last 5years(2008-2012)
Highest Earning Stars in Bollywood
Forbes India recently released the ‘Celebrity 100? list. Along with it, they also released an estimation of how much a particular celebrity earned in the period between October 2011 and September 2012.
It was Shahrukh Khan, with 23 brand endorsements, who topped the Highest Earning stars list with Rs 202.83 crores in a year. SRK was followed by Akshay Kumar (179.95 crores), Salman Khan (144.2 crores), cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni (135.16 crores) and Amitabh Bachchan (116.3 crores).
In an exclusive interview to Indian Express, producer-director Rakesh Roshan has revealed that his ambitious superhero film Krrish 3 has a runtime of 2 and a half hours and the film will have only 3 songs.
During the release of their last production venture Kites, Hrithik Roshan had openly spoken against song and dance numbers. Not including lip-sync songs, we believe, would be a good move for a film like Krrish 3.
Excerpts from the interview with Priyanka Sinha Jha.
The good part is that in Krrish 3, I don’t have to establish the character. I already did that in the first two parts (Koi Mil Gaya and Krrish). Hrithik is playing both father and son, and looks like a different person for each character. The shot division becomes very difficult as a result of this – I have to do all the shots of the older character first and the young one’s later. A make-up artist has been flown in from London. The film’s duration is about two and a half hour and it has only three songs. I have knowingly put in elements, which a younger generation will understand. (more…)
Neeraj Pandey returns back to the directorial position with SPECIAL 26,after delivering the much acclaimed and a good Box Office success “A WEDNESDAY”. SPECIAL 26 stars Anupam Kher, Kajal Agarwal, Akshay Kumar, Jimmy Shergil and Manoj Bajpai. Slated to release on 8th February, this film have not gathered the eyeballs despite of A list actor. The film may not open to good figures, but can do well in its lifetime run if gets accepted. But the film faces too much of competition and also its not a solo release. The dance film ABCD have generated good buzz and may prove to be a good competition to SPECIAL 26. Lets predict the figures for SPECIAL 26….

There’s absolutely no iota of doubt that the new-age directors are coming up with some brilliant concepts and ideas. However, translating them into celluloid can prove to be a tad risky affair. After all, it’s cinema. A film can have one positives but handful of minuses can lead to a film’s downfall. David falls in this category. The film is aided with a very impressive idea of three men, all named David, based in three different eras and how their lives change and even interlink, coincidentally all on the same date of their respective eras – March 3! Director Bejoy Nambiar also throws in some well-sketched characters and different colour tones for each track. However, a film of this type and style ought to be taut and pacy and definitely not lethargic. David, that’s almost 155 minutes long, therefore fails to create much of an impact.
The story of the movie: 1975 London: David (Neil Nitin Mukesh) is a fiercely loyal to his master, Iqbal Ghani (Akash Khurana), a dreaded mafia, and in love with the rebellious Noor (Monica Dogra). Officials from the Indian government are sent to eliminate Ghani and they decide to use David and the secrets of his bloodline to set their plan in motion.
1999 Mumbai: David (Vinay Virmani) is a happy-go-lucky youth who loves to play guitar and even give lessons. He doesn’t share a cordial relation with his dad, Father Noel (Nasser) but decides to fight for him when he’s needlessly dragged into a political issue by Malati Tai (Rohini Hattangadi).
2010 Goa: David (Chiyaan Vikram) is a fisherman who is addicted to his drink. His mother wants him to tie the knot but he’s least interested, until he comes across Roma (Isha Sharvani), a deaf and mute girl. He soon realizes that he’s in love but there’s a hitch, a big one that too.
Here’s the thread for February, 2013. Please post all the movies you watched this month (as the month passes)
Until now, I have seen 3 movies and here they are:
1) Hulla (2008)- I saw Cr7 mentioning this movie and I remembered watching the first 20 minutes an year back or so and hence decided to check it out again. The plot of the film is very, very simple. A middle class Mumbai couple moves into an new apartment and the husband starts getting disturbed with the whistling by the watchman every night. Its fascinating how Jaideep Verma actually made a movie on such a simple topic. The plot of the movie is just an outline of the movie is about. The real picture is about how small things can affect us and how easy it is to ignore them or endorse them. Sushant Singh plays the irritated man who is just not able to sleep because of the noise and how he makes it such an important issue in his life. You will get the bigger picture once you checkout the film. The Parallel track of Rajat Kapoor as strict Secretary is equally interesting. In fact on careful observation one may understand that how the movie is about two people and an issue. The issue which is the most important problem in one’s life and the same issue is the only acheivment of someone else’s life. The issue which in essence is trivial but becomes a point that has to be made for both the parties. The music by Indian Ocean is simply outstanding. Check it out on a Sunday noon and you won’t regret it.
Hulla – 7 on 10 (more…)
Some people should know what will offend and what will not but they never seem to learn. If you’re writing an article, a book or making a movie you should first make a list of all those who will be offended by it and then sanitise your work. This piece of sound advice is not from me but the Honourable Minister Shashi Tharoor. You see, Tharoor believes anything offending Hindus is a work of art and should be appreciated and applauded as such. But if you’re about to write anything or make any movie that has the remote chance of offending Muslims you should think twice. He established this doctrine of free speech in a debate with the late Christopher Hitchens. I quote Tharoor because his logic symbolises the entire left-liberal crap in the Indian socio-political system.Poor Ashis Nandy! He made some comment about OBCs and Dalits being corrupt and he’s about to pay a price for it. This was during a discussion at the latest edition of the Jaipur Litterfest. Yes I call them Litterfests since they seem to have nothing to do with literature but more of a platform for political discussions. Last year the same Litterfest had to contend with protests against Salman Rushdie’s participation. Hmm! That guy had offended Muslims with ‘Satanic Verses’. This year the Muslims have taken preventive measures to ensure he doesn’t turn up. Then there are those ThinkFests by the Tehelka group of Tarun Tejpal which is tainted by accusations of extortion for ads from the Goa govt. Then again there was another Litterfest where Girish Karnad ranted against VS Naipaul at a function to honour the latter. While the Rajasthan govt was quick to file FIRs against Nandy they haven’t filed any FIR against Union Minister Sushil Shinde who spewed hatred with his “Hindu terror” speech. It took the AP govt months to act against the Owaisis who frequently indulge in filthy speeches.

NG All Stars
Dear Members and Visitors, We are back. After a few months of inactivity and bad design (both which I take great responsibility for), I have redone NG from scratch so goes back to being the BEST Bollywood/Indian film experience ever. NG has been through a lot yet we keep on going while others seem to give up or vanish completely. Our resilience is our trademark and this says more about you, the member – the visitor – than about a blog or me. I have tried to do my part by fixing many of the mistakes of the past in this new kind of NG. I hope this iteration brings everyone a new jot – with old friends and new faces – as we allRead more...
Movie: Mardaani Direct: Pradeep Sarkar Cast: Rani Mukherjee and Tahir Bhasin Writing review after many months. Have watched quite a movies, mostly on small screen and very few on big. Never wrote in more than 4 lines comment about a movie. But this particular movie “Mardaani” made me to write a short review and share my views so that people could not know about it, at least whoever reads this. Movie is about crime branch inspector Shivani Roy (Rani Mukerji). She is in pursuit of an adopted girl. The early signs showed a simple kidnapping but further investigation reveals abduction by a drug and human trafficking syndicate, comprising of various politicians and gang leaders, the most fierce being Karan or Walt played by Tahir Bhasin.Read more...
After Humshakals was criticised by viewers and critics, actor Saif Ali Khan too trashed the film, saying it was regressive and he regretted being a part of it and underestimating his audience’s intelligence. But how difficult is it for a director to stand by his own project, when the lead actor slams it by saying the film didn’t have a script to begin with? Director Teja, who has worked in Tollywood and Bollywood and directed films like Nuvvu Nenu, Jai and Nijam, feels that it is unfair of any actor to wash his hands off a project when it has failed. “And in Saif’s case, he had a triple role in the film and he practically occupied 80 per cent of the screen space. HowRead more...
My surreal journey into the world of movie-making started long before my family and I walked down the red carpet two weeks ago. That was the night producers Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, and Juliet Blake showcased their beautiful film of The Hundred-Foot Journey, my novel about a young Indian chef who becomes a three-star chef in Paris. One of the most memorable moments actually happened last fall, when my wife and I visited the film set an hour outside of Toulouse, the mud fields where director Lasse Hallström and a long list of major-league talent, including actors Helen Mirren and Om Puri, were miraculously turning my little tale into a big-screen fable. Oprah Winfrey wanted to meet me, and so my wife and I nervouslyRead more...
