Filming in the Kashmir Valley would be incomplete without a sampling of the local cuisine or Wazwan. And so director Ayan Mukerji decided to wrap up the Pahalgam schedule of his next, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, with a traditional lunch for the cast and crew of his film on Friday last week. As is customary with the Wazwan, groups of four eat from the same plate which is called Trami. Seen in the picture alongside are lead actors Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, Ayan and one more unit member as they enjoy the sumptuous meal. Typically, it comprises at least 10 varieties of non-vegetarian food served with delicately flavoured rice as accompaniment. Continue reading →

But their inability to return home and living forever on the lam have left their lives incomplete. Meanwhile, Hobbs (Johnson) has been tracking an organization of lethally skilled mercenary drivers across 12 countries, whose mastermind (Evans) is aided by a ruthless second-in-command revealed to be the love Dom thought was dead, Letty (Rodriguez).

It was one and a half year ago that i have watched only one Hollywood movie.TITANIC which i watched only for some obvious reasons like kissing scenes and all.and i was a totally bollywood fan thinking that there is not any good movie outside of bollywood.and the reason for not watching hollywood movies was language.but suddenly after recommendations of NG members like suprabh and Ihab and jesus and roy and alot more.that i have decided to watch Hollywood movies.and from that time i watched thousends of hollywood movies if not lakhs.five movies a day is like normal thing for me.and then i came to realise that Bollywood needs a jump of 1000 years to make movies like Hollywood.and there is some hollywood movies that touched my heart.
Cast Away (2000).it was amazing movie that made me cry alot for unknown reasons.it teachs me that a human can do anything to survive in any situation.Tom Hanks is one of my favorate actors.and he nailed this role of Chuck Noland.and director Robert Zemeckis done a great job.9/10
Blood Diamond (2006) Leonardo DiCaprio is my most favorate hollywood actor followed by Bradd pitt.and this is his best work according to me.what a story this movie has.a tight script.and emotional journey of a father searching for his son is told gratefully.and it made me cry aloooooooot.and it was very entertaining also. 10/10
Buried (2010).and this is one of that rare movies where you will see only one man in it.there is no one else in the movie without its leading actor Ryan Reynolds.the story is about a a U.S. truck driver working in Iraq.who finds himself buried alive inside a coffin.and how he survive from that.and the climax will shock you.and that climax will be in your mind after movie ends for very long time.9/10 Continue reading →

Salman was shooting for an ad at a bungalow in Versova’s Yari Road. The commercial also stars Aamna Sharif, and is directed by a production company headed by a prominent ad-man-turned-filmmaker.

There came a point however, when he had to walk towards Aamna, and that too went off without a glitch. But the director was not happy, and requested Salman to walk up to Aamna again. Salman shot back, “Agar walk karana hai toh kisi model to bula lete!”Continue reading →
