Priyanka Chopra was seen riding a decrepit crowded truck laden with bananas and livestock through a muddy field and the gorgeous actress, dressed in a pale blue saree didn’t look too amused. The truck was towing a jeep with a dejected Arjun Kapoor on the driver’s seat. The punctured tyre of the jeep gave us an idea of the bigger picture.

Recently our lensman caught a rugged-looking Imran Khan dressed in black sherwani toying with a pistol in a nondescript narrow alley near Pune’s MG Road. In a distance was a gell-haired Akhshay Kumar looking every bit a Mafioso, standing on a rooftop. Well, if you were wondering if the duo has changed their profession, then zoom out and a long shot will reveal a different picture —the two actors were shooting for Milan Lutharia’s Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again.

As Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone shoot for Ayan Mukerji’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani under sub-zero temperatures in Pahalgam, it seems the ice between the two ex-lovers has melted and for good. The film is produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. After the huge success of Wake Up Sid, this is the second time Ranbir and Ayan are pairing up. The film also stars Kalki Koechlin and Aditya Roy Kapur in important roles. The team that has been shooting a love song in the frozen valleys of Kashmir since January 26, has been provided multi-layer security comprising CRPF and J&K Police personnel. With peace slowly returning to the valley it seems Kashmir is becoming one of the favourite shooting locations once again. Only last year, late Yash Chopra’s love story Jab Tak Hai Jaan found a perfect setting in the romantic locales of Kashmir.

The shooting of Karan Johar-Sajid Nadiadwala co-production, Two States started on Tuesday with a song. Shot in a neon pink and florescent orange set at Kamalistan Studio, that oozed grandeur, the song set to tune by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, featured Alia Bhatt decked up in traditional south Indian attire replete with a gajra. Alia, who plays a Tamil Iyengar girl in the film, has been taking extensive diction classes for the past two months. Apart from working on acquiring the typical south Indian accent, she has also learned about the tradition and rituals followed in a typical Tamilian household. The film– a screen adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s novel 2 States: The Story of My Marriage – is being directed by Abhishek Verman and will star Arjun Kapoor opposite the Student of the Year actress.
