The soft-spoken RajkumarHirani, who is not known to lose his equanimity easily, is an angry man. He is upset with the volley of reports that have been appearing of late, aimed at ‘sabotaging’ his under-production film PK.
Especially damaging, say his friends, are the comparisons with the recent AkshayKunar-PareshRawalstarrer OMG-Oh My God, and the rumours that the similarities may have forced him to rewrite the script entirely, pushing back the schedule indefinitely.
A crewmember (on request of anonymity) told TOI, “Somebody is clearly out to sabotage PK. And that is simply because Hirani is a man of few words. PK has no resemblance to OMG-Oh My God, it is an entirely original film. Hirani took his time to write it and he is not a fool to put Kanji Virrudh Kanji on celluloid all over again and lay claims on a film based on it.”
Apparently Hirani was amused when the reports of the similarities first started trickling in. But then the rumours intensified, and he did not find it funny any more. Worse, some publications even reported that PK has been indefinitely postponed. “Hirani starts the film in December as planned after Aamir from his Talaash commitments,” says the source. (more…)
The Delhi High Court Friday asked the Competition Commission of India (CCI) to “urgently” pass the order on a plea filed by actor Ajay Devgn against the alleged monopolistic practices adopted by Yash Raj Films in ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’.
Yash Raj Films (YRF), the production house owned by late Yash Chopra, allegedly abused its dominant position by asking exhibitors to dedicate more screens to their upcoming release “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” than for his “Son of Sardaar”, Devgn said in a complaint to the CCI.
“Jab Tak Hai Jaan” (starring Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma) and “Son Of Sardaar” (starring Ajay Devgn, Sonakshi Sinha and Sanjay Dutt) are scheduled for release this Diwali Nov 13.
Hearing the plea of Devgn, Justice Rajiv Shakdher asked the CCI to hear the plea and pass the order urgently. (more…)

Raja Natwarlal had poor collections on day one as it collected around 5 crore nett on day one. Mumbai circuit was a bit better as Gujarat and Saurashtra fared better and by far the best collections across India. It was a holiday in Maharashtra and Gujarat and that helped Mumbai circuit compared to rest of India but even with holiday Mumbai can not be called good. The rest of the country was poor with North and Central recording dull collections and also not showing that major jump in the evening shows which was needed.Read more...
