When quizzed the Samrat Rajeev Khandelwal about it, he said “As this is a true blue detective film, Kaushik Da was very firm about the fact the music/songs of the film have to be centered on the story of the movie, and not just be placed for the sake of it. The music is completely in sync with the premise, and they definitely take the story forward! I’m very happy that the hit combo of Aashiqui 2 are the forces behind Samrat?s music and they have done complete justice to the soundtrack!

It was the truth. I had no objective. I was just fascinated by people, so I used to study their behaviour.”

Fascist attack on Saif Ali Khan?

Earlier this week, Saif Ali Khan was upset when an MLA alleged that he was opting to visit the US for an awards night when he should have rather stayed back in Mumbai to vote during this election season. In a quick fire chat, Saif clears the air:

An MLA from Thane has apparently written to the President of India seeking action against you and others, questioning your decision to fly to the US for the IIFA Awards. What do you have to say about this?
My travel plans are private and I am amazed that someone else could have access to that and have a better idea than me. In fact, I’m myself not sure about when I’m leaving for the US.

This man seems to feel that you should stay back and vote instead.
I understand that voting is important and I am indeed going to vote before I leave. Having said that, it is my choice to vote! Even if I was not voting, what this man is suggesting is not just frightening but also unconstitutional.

Salman Khan grows potatoes, pumpkins in his kitchen garden

It was recently reported how Salman Khan is off alcohol and cigarettes for the past three years. Now, it seems that the star has taken another step towards healthy living.

A regular at Salman’s Panvel retreat informed us how impressed he was after getting a tour of the farm. Revealed the source, “Salman has been growing potatoes, tomatoes and pumpkins without using any kind of artificial fertilizers. He proudly feeds his guests dishes cooked with the vegetables grown in his kitchen garden.” The star has turned to gardening as he believes that the vegetables in the market today are laced with chemicals and can trigger serious health problems. Healthy eating is the way to a healthy lifestyle, according to the new and improved Salman Khan. But if you are thinking that the actor intends to make a quick buck out of his fresh produce, then you are mistaken. The veggies are strictly for domestic use.

“Much of what he grows is consumed at his Bandra home and in the farmhouse, with the surplus going to guests and other close friends,” the source said. When contacted, Salman’s father, Salim Khan confirmed the news.

He said, “I’ve never seen Salman so passionate about anything. He’s really given his heart and soul to the farm,” while adding, “He loves spending time there, being at one with nature. And yes, we have no plans to sell the output commercially. It’s just an initiative towards a healthy life.”

The Barfi! actor has experimented with his looks onscreen and he’s ready with yet another new do to woo his fans

Ranbir Kapoor is ready to present himself in yet another interesting avatar on screen. Here’s RK Jr’s latest look from Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet. The Kapoor lad looks very different from his earlier films, he’s neither the cool college boy from Wake Up Sid and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, nor is he the hatke Rockstar. Ranboo’s got a new hairdo and a team designing his brand new suave look in the film. We hear that the actor transforms on screen and the movie portrays his journey from being a street fighter to a tycoon. Anurag Kashyap and Bombay Velvet team have been guarding RK’s look in the movie fiercely. But now that it is out we can see Ranbir’s new hairdo that look interesting and reminds us of Shahrukh Khan from Ra.One, only it is a shorter version of SRK’s south Indian curls.

That’s not it we also have gathered from our fair-feathered friends that Ranboo has been working out for this new look and even flew down, not his girlfriend Katrina Kaif, but his cook and trainer to Sri Lanka. We finally have figured out why the actor was spotted with a head cover on most occasions.

Trailer Review: The Xpose – Copy Of The Great Gatsby And Om Shanti Om

The official trailer of The Xpose starring Irrfan Khan, Himesh Reshammiya and Yo Yo Honey Singh is out and one is very upset and disappointed with what one got to see.
From the sets, to the look of The Xpose is a direct lift from the Hollywood film The Great Gatsby, something that puts you to shame.

The Xpose is set in the 1960’s, very la Om Shanti Om, where the life of stars was larger than life. One can see desperation of Himesh Reshammiya to pack drama, romance, music and thriller all in The Xpose. Apart from Irrfan Khan, Himesh Reshammiya and Yo Yo Honey Singh, the film features Zoya Afroz, Sonali Raut and Adil Hussain.

The Xpose trailer starts with Sonali Raut offering a prayer, a scene that a direct lift from the film Satyam Shivam Sundaram. Now before you get out of this shock we get to see fireworks in the sky, women gyrating at decadent parties and the men sipping drinks wearing sharp suits and bow ties.

Alia Bhatt: I can’t be like Sunny Leone!

Alia Bhatt, who made an impressive entry into Bollywood with filmmaker Karan Johar’s teenage rom-com STUDENT OF THE YEAR in 2012 followed by Imtiaz Ali’s critically acclaimed HIGHWAY, is gearing up for her next flick, 2 STATES.

Though Alia has worked with some of the ace directors from the industry already, one wonders when the Bhatt girl plans to work with her father-filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt. “Nothing has come my way yet. When has to happen it will. We will come together only when it’s like worth it. Don’t want to do a film in a hurry,” confesses Alia.

Interestingly, Mahesh Bhatt films are known for its bold content. Ask Alia whether she is comfortable doing them, and she retorts “Describe bold for me… He only shows kissing and that I have done in my first film,” adding further, “If wearing a bikini is bold, I have done that too. And all these things are done very tastefully and aesthetically. So I am fine. But obviously, I can’t be like Sunny Leone. I am very young and that image does not come yet.”

Is Uday Chopra forcing Nargis Fakhri into marriage?

While the whole of B-town is hush-hush about the romantic equation shared by Uday Chopra and Nargis Fakhri, not many know about the trouble brewing in the duo’s paradise since the two have dramatically different priorities in their starry lives

Uday Chopra and Nargis Fakhri are as different from each other as chalk and cheese. And hey, we are not mean enough to restrict our comparison to the duo’s looks alone. We all know Uday is super rich and amazingly talented when it comes to handling his diligently followed Twitter account. Nargis on the other hand is super sexy, absolutely haughty and incredibly hopeless when it comes to expressing herself in front of the camera. Together Nargis and Uday make for a deadly couple, indeed!

The two might be wandering around sticking “we are just friends” labels on their starry sleeves, we all know that their closeness is beyond the F-word (friendship that is) and the mutual benefits the two are reaping out of their warm, discreet and close relationship is an absolute must to sustain this relationship…oops friendship!

Complaint against Bollywood Contingent going abroad during elections

A Member of the Legislative Assembly, Thane, Pratap Sarnaik has written to the President of India, Pranab Mukherjee, seeking action against a Bollywood contingent of actors and technicians who are scheduled to fly to America for an awards show.

Speaking to us, Sarnaik said, “The awards night is being hosted in America between 23 and 27 April. These dates coincide with our Lok Sabha elections. I’m told some of the biggest actors and renowned technicians are leaving the country in this period. There are people like Saif Ali Khan and others, who have been conferred with the Padma awards, in this group. How then, can such persons leave, without bothering to cast their vote? Actors are public figures who should lead by example. If they themselves do not exercise their franchise, they are bad role models. Such irresponsible behaviour should be condemned.”

Sarnaik added, “The election dates were announced with ample notice. Ideally, the organisers should have changed their awards show dates. Or else, the stars who are performing and receiving awards should have impressed upon the organisers the need to change the date; they should have insisted they want to be in India on election day to cast their votes.”
The MLA further stated, “This is such a serious issue that the passports of those leaving the country for their own monetary gain without casting their vote, should be impounded.”

Deepika Padukone chooses Bajirao Mastani over Shuddhi

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s dream project ‘Bajirao Mastani’, a historical love story that has been close to Sanjay’s heart for the past 10 years, has finally found its Bajirao and Mastani. The hit jodi and real life couple Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone will play Bajirao and Mastani, respectively.

Both Karan Johar and Sanjay Leela Bhansali have announced their films ‘Shuddhi’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’, respectively for a December 2015 release. We have heard that both are great scripts, which require a fair amount of time from its actors for shooting and marketing and thus, Deepika needed to make her choice between the two.

Deepika had earlier been confirmed for Shuddhi but we guess that her love for Sanjay Leela Bhansali as a director and the time she would get to spend with Ranveer may be amongst the reasons for making this difficult choice. While Deepika and Sanjay remained unavailable for comment, we can safely say that the cast of Bajirao Mastani is a first grand step by Sanjay towards achieving his dream.

Movie Review: MAIN TERA HERO by FENIL SETA

 

Prior to the release of Chashme Baddoor last year, director David Dhawan admitted that he was nervous before the film went on floors as the film was devoid of his three favourite stars – Govinda, Sanjay Dutt and Salman Khan. One year later, David Dhawan is back with another comedy, Main Tera Hero, which again doesn’t feature his three favourites (although Salman is present in a small way). And just like Chashme Baddoor, Main Tera Hero is a hilarious ride and proves that David need not always incorporate his favourite actors in the film. His execution and his excellent team of writers are enough to take the film to dizzying heights. And moreover, this time he has Varun Dhawan, who is guaranteed to win every viewer’s heart!

The story of the movie: Shreenath Prasad (Varun Dhawan) aka Seenu lives with his parents in Ooty. He’s terrible in studies and is notorious for his mischievous behavior. After being taunted by his father (Manoj Pahwa), Seenu decides to go to Bangalore for higher studies. In college, he comes across Sunaina (Ileana DCruz) and falls for her. By doing so, he gets into the bad books of Angad Bedi (Arunoday Singh). But Seenu is sharp and successfully thwarts Angad and his attempts to defeat him. However, the real trouble begins when Aisha (Nargis Fakhri) springs from nowhere and falls in love with Seenu.

Imposter! Man posing as Aditya Chopra offers plum film role

An imposter using Aditya Chopra’s name on Facebook has been asking people to pay Rs 2,000 and get cast in the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer, ‘Fan’, that is slated to go on the floors later this year. Apparently, there have been several enquiries about the same with the production house.

Shanoo Sharma, who heads the casting department at Yash Raj Films, found out about this and promptly tweeted about the same. Warning people about this hoax, she tweeted, “This is a false account and it has nothing to do with us. If there are any casting updates, they will only be posted on our official page.’’

This is not the first time someone has misused a production house’s name to dupe film industry aspirants. Fake accounts of filmmakers such as Imtiaz Ali, Tarun Mansukhani, Neeraj Pandey, and Samir Karnik, among others, have been misleading strugglers for quite some time now.

David Dhawan: No Offence To Katrina Kaif

The maker of Bollywood’s knee-slapper films, David Dhawan, was in news since last week for wrong reasons. Besides his film Main Tera Hero is releasing, the director had made some funny remarks about Katrina Kaif and her ex-flame Salman Khan.

Both Katrina and Salman are good friends of the director who made a good number of blockbusters in his career. The reason for the present situation is a hilarious one liner by Raju Kher in David’s upcoming film, Main Tera Hero. The one line is about the lack of Katrina’s command over Hindi Language. But Dhawan says that there will be no controversy regarding this because Katrina has a sense of humour. He said, “It is just an off-the-cuff remark, a bantering quip in the film, and Katrina is a girl I’ve known for many years.


In fact she did her first big film Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya with Salman and me. She can never be offended with what I do. She knows it’s all in fun.” Dhawan poked fun at Salman last week saying that his son, Varun, won’t get married until Sallu bhai does! He revealed that he was just kidding, “I was just doing some masti with my son. I don’t see any likelihood of Salman getting married. So I was kidding about Varun staying a bachelor.” Main Tera Hero featuring Dhawan’s son Varun, Ileana D’Cruz and Nargis Fakhri is all set to hit the screens on April 4.
