While her debut is as big as it gets, Saiee Manjrekar accompanied Salman Khan to the recent IIFA Awards 2019 that was held in Mumbai. This role is extremely special for Saiee since her father has also been a part of this franchise and was seen playing the role of Sonakshi Sinha’s on-screen father.

The War of t-shirts between Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff just got better!

Posted by on PP in

Hrithik Roshan has responded to Tiger Shroff’s hilarious trolling by saying ‘No Tiger can beat the master of this jungle’! Hrithik and Tiger, two of the biggest action superstars of the country, are locked in a ferocious showdown against each other in their much-awaited film War. During the promotions of the film, the two actors are cheekily trolling each other through their t-shirt meme war that has taken the internet by storm. And this War is only getting funnier!

The War of t-shirts between Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff just got better!

Tiger began this funny war when he trolled his co-star and mentor with a picture of Krrish printed on it with a caption that read, "Hiding your fear behind a mask?" Hrithik then stepped out with a super funny comeback to Tiger. Hrithik trolled Tiger wearing a tee with a picture of Tiger in his superhero avatar from A Flying Jatt and the caption read, “Flying away from this WAR already?”

Not one to take it lying low, Tiger again fired a fresh troll missile at Hrithik as he sported a T-shirt that read, “Khaali Haath Jaane Ko Taiyaar?” The t-shirt had Hrithik’s picture from his iconic Kaho Na Pyaar Hai dance number ‘Ek Pal Ka Jeena’! Hrithik, of course, through his t-shirt has hinted that he is the king of the jungle when it comes to action. We love this fun camaraderie between the two superstars who have found a unique way to promote their film.

In War, Hrithik and Tiger will be seen waging a war against each other and it seems like the makers have pulled all stops to make this massive showdown a never seen before action spectacle. Touted as the biggest action entertainer of the year, War has been produced by Yash Raj Films. The high-octane film that also stars Vaani Kapoor opposite Hrithik Roshan is set to release in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu on the big holiday of Gandhi Jayanti, October 2.

The Kapil Sharma Show: Pankaj Tripathi shocks the audience by revealing he was jailed for a week

Posted by on PP in

This weekend on the Kapil Sharma Show will be revelations beyond anyone’s imagination. Kumar Vishwas, Pankaj Tripathi and Manoj Bajpayee will take the stand and clarify a lot of rumours doing the rounds. Some of them will really surprise the audience.

The Kapil Sharma Show: Pankaj Tripathi shocks the audience by revealing he was jailed for a week

When asked actor Pankaj Tripathi whether he stayed with his wife in the boy's hostel and that she disguised herself with a moustache, the actor agreed to the same and added, “Yes we did stay together in the boy's hostel, but my wife never sported a moustache. Problem was that it wasn’t allowed, a woman in the boy's hostel. But I got married before I passed out (of NSD) and secretly got her to stay with me. But boys usually wear limited clothing, especially in the hostel and when they came to know my wife is going to be around, they accommodated by being on their best behaviour and dressing decently. Unfortunately, the warden also got to know he asked me when I was going to rent out a proper room.”

Furthermore, it was brought to everyone’s notice that during his college days, Pankaj Tripathi was jailed for a week. This came as quite a shock to people. But the calm and composed Pankaj graciously admitted to the same. He said, “I was quite active in student politics in my college. When I was in there, I was also beaten up and not just jailed. The best part is that the Police exactly knows the process. They won’t let you have a fracture, but beat you up good.” Adds the actor amidst pearls of laughter.

This dint end here. When asked if the rumour of Manoj Bajpayee buying veggies himself at the market is true, Manoj admitted that he loves to go vegetable shopping and one can find him at a particular vendor early in the morning once in three days in Shastri Nagar.

Bhumi Pednekar is a climate warrior!

Posted by on PP in

India today, like all global countries, is facing the deep impact of climate change. Be it debilitating water shortage or destructive floods or the rise in earth’s temperature and its consequent impact on rain cycles or the irreversible impact of pollution, everything is contributing towards ecological imbalance. The threat to humanity is widespread and is only becoming more and more each year. Actress Bhumi Pednekar has consistently and passionately advocated conservation and protection of the environment and she has started a pan India campaign called Climate Warrior, Aimee at raising awareness about climate change and environmental conservation.

Bhumi Pednekar is a climate warrior!

Climate Warrior is a concerted social media and online initiative that Bhumi will use to focus on awareness building and engage the people of our country to become more conscious of climate and environment-friendly life choices. It will also highlight the work done by tireless environmental activists and citizen groups across India to bring about sustainable change to the environment.

Bhumi explains, “Climate Warrior is my attempt to start a dialogue with people who work tirelessly to save the environment and highlight the crisis that we find ourselves in due to climate change. It’s a platform through which I hope to keep reminding people that climate change is real and comes with some serious repercussions. Through this initiative, I’m going to work towards bringing positive social change that’s the need of the hour.”

The hugely versatile actress adds, “The campaign will champion the efforts of these warriors regularly and ask people to participate in saving our planet because the threat to humanity is imminent and the time to act is now. I want to make people aware that by making minor yet significant changes in their daily lifestyle and thought process, they can help stop the damaging impact that’s happening on our climate.”

Bhumi says her campaign will present factual evidence of the crisis that humankind finds itself today. “I want to present hard facts to people and make them realise how large the threat to life is because of climate change and environmental abuse. I care about conserving my planet, care deeply about our next generations and sincerely hope that more and more people will join hands to protect our future that we are all set to share,” she says.

Ever since her popularity began to grow, Bhumi has used her star power to regularly highlight issues related to environmental pollution, conservation, as she feels strongly about the future of our planet. Climate Warrior will be an organised annual campaign that Bhumi will helm throughout. As she does with any of the characters she portrays in a movie, Bhumi will give Climate Warrior her very best, which is a reflection of her genuine care for the cause.

Subhash K Jha speaks about Prassthanam

Posted by on PP in

Midway through the stormy tale of politics, family feuds, sibling rivalry and other elements of simmering discontent, an incidental character tells the film’s primary antagonist, “It’s always happened in history. Brother kills brother for power.” This terrible truism holds together a film plotted like a spiralling hurricane of ceaseless conflicts spinning out of control at certain points but eventually holding together its core theme of blood being thicker than water. This, in summation, is what Prassthanam is all about. It’s the story of family of politician that faces a crisis of identity.

Subhash K Jha reviews Sanjay Dutt’s Prassthanam

The film captures the characters in Sanjay Dutt’s family as viciously compromised by the desire to usurp power by hook or by crook. The Dutt clan here could be the moghul dynasty gone manfully mofussil. While the dramatic conflict is constantly heightened and intensified by a desire to  pre-empt audiences’ expectations, the film derives its strength primarily from the way the characters respond to one another during times of crisis.

Director Deva Katta, who had made the same film very successfully in Telugu ten years ago, tightens the script, edits out some of the lengthier discussions on the nature of power and politics, but retains the essence of the original in the way Sanjay Dutt’s character’s two sons, played by Ali Fazal and debutant Satyajit Dubey, respond to Uttar Pradesh’s arching bristling politics.

Both Ali Fazal and Satyajit Dubey execute the conundrum of sibling rivalry with conviction and intensity. Dubey is quite a find. His psychotic character gives an all-new dimension to the cliché of the spoilt rich pampered privileged brat who after a point cannot tell right from wrong, and cannot differentiate between the weak and the strong.

But it’s Sanjay Dutt who holds the film together. His character Baldev Pratap Singh goes through many upheavals and eventually arrives at a point where he loses the audiences’ empathy. Dutt steers the characters ably and expertly through a labyrinth of power pain and retribution. Jackie Shroff as Dutt’s faithful man-friday hardly speaks. His implosive rage is fearsome. And the eventual outburst is devastating.

Manisha Koirala exudes a tragic grace in her quietest moments as a mother who must watch her two sons from different fathers bring ruination on the family. But the script really has no patience with women characters, who are all dealt with hurriedly. This is a masculine beefcake-bound show filled with furious melodrama and macho conflicts .The male actors make the best of the situation inhaling the toxic air with relish.

By the time this demoniacally dysfunctional family’s darkest secret tumbles out, we are so inured in the plot’s torrent of drama and retribution that nothing shocks. The numbing quality of plotted shocks delivered in an uninterrupted furious flow of energized drama, could have been slowed down.

The storytelling has no breathing space, and after a point it becomes difficult to empathize in the stifling milieu of internecine politics with a family that is hell-bent on self-destruction. And yet   the mood of the narrative is stubbornly compelling. And I found it hard to turn away from the destiny of doom that the characters wear like a deathly cloak.

The action sequences, many filmed on crowded roads and over bridges and one specially heart stopping fight in a movie theatre, are impressively staged. If only the film had avoided the outdated conventions of a big budget melodrama,  like an ill-timed item song(horribly inopportune and ugly) or dialogues that are meant to be loaded with relevance but are actually so shallow they make the characters sound far less intelligent than they are meant to be.

Despite the outpouring of melodrama, Prassthanam manages to make itself into something of a twisted morality tale where the loyalty of the loyalist is constantly questioned. Jackie Shroff as the faithful man-Friday who finally realizes high the price paid for his blind allegiance to a family of feudal puppets, epitomizes what the film signifies.

Prassathanam remains faithful to the big family sagas of yore only to realize just in time that times have changed. It’s like a street-side Godfather, crude yet compelling.

Subhash K Jha speaks about The Zoya Factor

Posted by on PP in

A rom-com that’s intelligent enough to consider its audience intelligent enough to avoid spoon-feeding every morsel of emotion …that’s The Zoya Factor, a delightfully grownup comedy where the laughs are so fluent, they fly. In Hindi cinema, there’s way too much punctuational background music. Happy music for comic scenes, dirgeful violins for tragedy…It’s as if the filmmakers are afraid to let us find our own emotions in the plot.

Subhash K Jha reviews Sonam Kapoor – Dulquer Salmaan’s The Zoya Factor

The Zoya Factor lets go. It allows the characters to bloom and groove to their own beats. There is a quirky cadence to the narrative, which was the mainstay of Anuja Chauhan’s novel. In the film, director Abhishek Sharma (Tere Bin Laden) Sharma multiplies the quirk-o-nomics by leaps and bounds, rendering the source-material into an endearing excursion with a surfeit of sauce material.

Saucy is indeed how the film comes across. Filled with percolating beans our Zoya, as played the ebullient Sonam Kapoor, is a bit of Lucille Ball and a lot of just any fumbling working-girl who dreams of doing something major with her life. Good to see a female hero who is vulnerable and clumsy.

When we first first meet Zoya she is being dumped by a nerdy dentist boyfriend. From the dentist, this plot with a byte sets off on the wackiest journey I’ve seen any female hero undertake. Sonam plays her goofy character with sincerity and spirit. She stumbles, she isn’t afraid to fall and when she fails she is man….errr, woman enough to accept defeat.

The narrative is baggily engaging, never allowing an over-tight editing pattern to ruin our appreciation of the actor’s attempts to define the unstated near-religious connection of cricket with the Indian psyche.

This brings me to Dulquer Salmaan as the captain of the cricket team which “adopts” Zoya as their lucky mascot. Dulquer’s reined-in performance works to pan out Sonam’s exuberant portrayal of a girl who is so hell-bent on creating a stir she ends up courting chaos. And every member of the cricket team specially Angad Bedi and Abhilash Choudhary ,is well played.

It’s good to see Sonam asking her co-star to show her his six-pack. Men have played the field long enough. The dialogues (by Pradhuman Singh) are colloquial and mordant with some of the best lines being mouthed not by the cricketer hero and his confused heroine, but the other actors, some of them like Manu Rishi (playing an unctuous cricketing-board chief) and Sikandar Kher (as Zoya’s protective but bullying brother) are so brilliant they add oodles of oomph and chutzpah to a story that brims with backchat.

Sanjay Kapoor as his real-life niece Sonam’s dad hits all the right notes. But it’s Anil Kapoor who brings the house down with his cameo as himself ‘AK’ mimicking his daughter’s novitine-numbed act so flamboyantly I fell down laughing. This is a comedy that doesn’t eke out its laughs. It earns them.

The Kapil Sharma Show: Pankaj Tripathi explains why education is important

Posted by on PP in

This weekend on The Kapil Sharma Show, popular and very well known actors Pankaj Tripathi and Manoj Bajpayee will be seen having a gala time along with Kumar Vishwas. The trio and Kapil Sharma have discussed every topic and ensured a good laugh for the audience. Will discussing funny incidents on how people react in their Desi-ness, actor Pankaj Tripathi had an interesting tale to share.

The Kapil Sharma Show Pankaj Tripathi explains why education is important

Said Pankaj, “We never used to study in childhood. Especially, all the kids in my hometown. And I was also very average in studies. But we always got told one specific tale back home which highlighted the disadvantages of not studying. And I would like to share this with everyone. There used to be one old lady, who was uneducated, and she went to the doctor. She was given 2 types of medicines. The doctor handed her one liquid medicine which she had to take orally and one liquid medicine which she could apply on her joints. That led to a huge conundrum for the old lady. She said she wasn’t educated, so she couldn’t understand which one to apply and which one to drink. So the doctor tried to simplify it for her – and said hold the medicine that needs to be applied in your left hand and the one to drink in your right hand. The whole way this lady kept memorizing left and right, but unfortunately got confused and did exactly the opposite of what the doctor had advised. She drank the medicine that was to be applied and applied the medicine which was to be consumed orally. This story was extremely popular across houses in my hometown and hence we were told to study so that we do not misunderstand the doctor’s prescription!”

The Kapil Sharma Show Pankaj Tripathi explains why education is important

Amidst pearls of laughter and fanfare, the audience appreciated this pro tip from Pankaj. He certainly is the ‘Guruji’ when it comes to explaining things.

WAR: Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff show off insane dance moves in 'Jai Jai Shivshankar’

Posted by on PP in

After almost a year of speculation, we can confirm today that Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff, two of the biggest action superstars and also the best dancers of India, will be seen dancing together in War! This lethal combination definitely makes it the biggest dance track of Bollywood. A big-budget Holi song, 'Jai Jai Shivshankar', will see the two bring their A-game on.

WAR Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff show off insane dance moves in 'Jai Jai Shivshankar’

Siddharth says, “Since the inception of the film, people were speculating that there would be a huge dance anthem featuring two of the best dancers of our country, Hrithik and Tiger. While people were wowed that two of the biggest action heroes of India were combining for the first time, they were also equally excited to see them dance together in War. This has been the biggest anticipation which automatically becomes a huge pressure for the people to deliver a cracking song that should become an anthem!”

He adds, “Firstly, we had to actually get the track right, get the track that actually justifies them dancing on it together. Hrithik and Tiger have had very, very good songs and big hit songs to their credit. Now, we are bringing them together for the first time and so we have all the more responsibility to deliver a song that should become a blockbuster instantly. I told Vishal and Shekhar that this is not just a song, this is a responsibility. I think it’s the blessings of God and the blessings of all the fans of Hrithik and Tiger that we have been able to create a track which is truly an anthem. You have to hear it to understand it!”

Shot on a scale that no Bollywood song has been ever shot before, 'Jai Jai Shivshankar' released today. “After we got the right track that had this kind of groove and beat which is so big, we couldn’t have shot it in any lesser way than we actually did,” Siddharth says. The song featuring over 500 dancers was conceptualized by Bosco and Caesar for more than a month before it was brought to Hrithik and Tiger.

Siddharth says Hrithik and Tiger rehearsed for 3 weeks to make this song a visual spectacle for audiences. He adds, “This is a Holi song in the film and what actually got me excited about the song was its lyrics. It says ‘Jai Jai Shivshankar, Aaj mood hai Bhayankar’. When you see this song, you will get into a bhayankar mood to dance, you will just freak out and that is the killer part of it.”

Yash Raj Films War, promises to be the biggest action spectacle of all times. The high-octane action entertainer will see Hrithik and Tiger pitted against each other in a massive showdown. War has been shot in 7 different countries and 15 world cities. Hrithik and Tiger have raised the bar of action by mercilessly fighting each other on land, water, frozen ice and air.

Produced by Yash Raj Films, War is set to release in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu on the big national holiday of Gandhi Jayanti (October 2nd). It also stars Vaani Kapoor playing Hrithik’s love interest in the film.

"I am not only an anxious father but also a tense producer" - says Sunny Deol on Karan Deol's debut in Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas

Posted by on PP in

Sunny Deol admits he was never so nervous about his own debut as he is about his son Karan Deol's debut. “When my debut happened, I was chilled out.  It was my father who was nervous. And look at how history repeats itself. Today, I am the nervous father waiting for my son’s film to release,” says Sunny with a disbelieving chuckle.

I am not only an anxious father but also a tense  producer - says Sunny Deol on Karan Deol's debut in Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas

For this anxious father, the pressures are multitudinous. Of late, Sunny Deol has been giving multi-tasking a new definition. “I am not just an anxious father, I am also the  director and producer  of  Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas. For months and weeks, I’ve been running here there and everywhere. Even now when there are only a few  days left before release  I am trying to be at five different places at the same time,” sighs Sunny, like a father running around for  his offspring’s wedding.

It’s been a long journey for Sunny Deol, from gawky debutant in Betaab to a tense father of a debutant  in Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas. Says the proud father, “Karan is so much more confident than I was when I came into films. I had no clue about anything like  camera angles and shot takings. Karan is fully clued into it. He is sincere hard-working, focused and very clear  about what he wants to do. We’ve worked very hard on Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas. I hope all those people who have supported me and my father will also welcome Karan.”

Scarily, Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas opens with the latest  instalment of Sylvester Stallone’s Rambo franchise. Sunny shrugs off the competition. “There will always be some film or the other on the same Friday. You  have to believe in your film.”

Sonam Kapoor says Dulquer Salmaan was always the first choice for The Zoya Factor

Posted by on PP in

Though Sonam K Ahuja, nee Kapoor, loves the love story that she shares with her co-star Dulquer Salmaan in her new release The Zoya Factor, her favourite love story, hands-down, is the one she shares with her husband Anand Ahuja. They’ve been married more than a year now. But, Anand’s  devotion to his wife remains undiminished.

Sonam Kapoor says Dulquer Salmaan was always the first choice for The Zoya Factor

Sighs Sonam, “I’m so lucky, so blessed, to have a husband who supports me in everything I do. Being married and pursuing my career could have really divided my loyalties. But, Anand made sure I was  comfortable in whatever I choose to do at a particular time.”

Though both Sonam and Anand are busy with their respective careers, they make sure they find time to  spend together. “It is very important to make sure that a couple finds enough time to be with one  another. Once you are married your marriage should be a top priority in your life. I am lucky to have married my best friend. So I enjoy every moment with Anand.”

Right now she’s torn away from Anand as she’s promoting, The Zoya Factor. Says Sonam, “It’s a special film because it has cricket at it core. And cricket along with cinema is a religion in India. Do I  follow cricket? I like the game and I watch it. But I’m not as clued in as other die-hard fans because I am not that uni-focussed on the game.”

The Zoya Factor gave Sonam a chance to explore another Indian pre-occupation, and that’s superstition. “Call it destiny or coincidence. But I do believe that there’s some force beyond your  comprehension, controlling your life, pushing you to do things that may not make sense at first. But it’s a part of a larger design. The Zoya Factor is about factors that make my character seem as though she’s where she is for a particular reason.”

Sonam says she thoroughly enjoyed working with Dulquer Salmaan. “He is such huge superstar in Malyali cinema. But, he has no vanity, or arrogance in him. He’s great fun to work with. We really hit it off well.”

Wasn’t Fawad Khan the first choice for The Zoya Factor? “No, that was for another project The Battle Of Bittora. This was always with Dulquer.”

Why did the project take longer than her usual films? Sonam demurs. “I don’t think it took longer. The rights of Anuja Chauhan’s book were bought, and I was approached for the film. Since then, everything has been smooth sailing for the project.”

Being at the centre of projects is becoming a habit for Sonam. Does it put a sense of responsibility on her? “Even if I am not the central character -– and I  wasn’t in Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Sanju -- I still feel a sense of responsibility towards the films that I do. The important thing for me at this stage of my career is to do films I enjoy doing. I learnt this from my father(actor Anil Kapoor). To enjoy my work so much it doesn’t seem like  work.”

Sonam has a couple of new projects on the anvil. “These I’ll talk about at the right time. But I will continue to divide my time between my work and my husband. Anand doesn’t let me feel divided. If he did it would have been very stressful for me to maintain a balance. But my career and marriage are smoothly aligned. I guess I am fortunate. But, I’ve also worked hard to get where I am . So let’s not give luck too much credit.”

Kartik Aaryan pulls a daredevil stunt for Pati Patni Aur Woh; chooses to not use a harness

Kartik Aaryan has been shooting for the remake of the BR Films classic in Lucknow for quite some time now. According to sources close to the film, he had to shoot a sequence on the second floor of the exterior of a building. The makers of the film wanted to take safety measures and asked for a harness while shooting the scene. However, the actor rejected this plea. Kartik Aaryan convinced his director that he would do the scene without the harness as it would save up some extra cost in post-production. The entire team was shocked and surprised at his demand.

Despite the filmmaker not ready for this kind of danger, Kartik went ahead and did the scene without a harness. Now that the thorough professional he is and also being a complete Akshay Kumar fan, Kartik Aaryan completed shooting for the scene safely. Looks like we have another daredevil in the making.

Off late, Kartik Aaryan has been flying back and forth to the city as his father is hospitalized. He’s not taking a day off from his Lucknow schedule but balancing his personal and professional life perfectly.

Dharmendra to Sunny to Karan: Tracing the Deol family tree through films

Posted by on PP in

I still don't know why Dharmendra one of my oldest friends kept his family which included his first wife, Prakash, sons Sunny and Bobby and their two sisters away from the arc lights during the initial stages of his career. Sunny was the only one who was taken out when some film makers wanted him to play the younger version of Dharmendra, especially Manmohan Desai Dharam- Veer, in which he played junior Dharam. All the others were secluded in their bungalow in Juhu and the boys were sent to boarding school.

Dharmendra to Sunny to Karan: Tracing the Deol family tree through films

It was only when Sunny was around 18 that someone gave Dharmendra the idea that his elder son, Sunny could make it as a star son just like the sons of Sunil Dutt and Rajendra Kumar and had in turn become stars in their own time. It didn't take the advisors a long time to convince Dharmendra and his only response was, "Agar rab ki yehi iccha hai, toh yehi sahi". And the father and son who were not in touch for several years had a quick talk and all Dharmendra asked him was whether he was willing to take on the responsibilities of being a star after knowing what he as his father had gone through. Dharmendra also told Sunny that he would do all he could to see that he didn't have to go through the grind like he had to once and the rest was all history.

Sunny who was very shy boy took time to give his father an answer, but the answer was positive ultimately. The son of the son of the soil was willing to go through all that was needed to make himself a star. And then the father went all out to find the right director, right script, right music director and above all the right heroine. Things fell in their places, Rahul Rawail, the son of veteran director H.S Rawail, known for making films like Mere Mehboob, Sangarsh and Laila Majnu, who was once an assistant of Raj Kapoor and who had directed Kumar Gaurav in Stardom in Love Story was to be the director, R.D Burman the music director and Amrita Singh who was the daughter of the then very controversial socialite and close associate of Sanjay Gandhi during the emergency and who was responsible for giving Sanjay the ideas of nasbandhi and mass slum demolition in South Delhi, Rukhsana Sultana, were to be the heroine of Sunny.

The date for the mahurat shot to be taken was fixed, as usual in consultation with several pundits of the Arya samaj community and the Sikh community. Mehboob studio which was considered lucky for star sons after Kumar Gaurav and Sanjay Dutt were launched there, was also fixed as the venue, for the launch of Sunny. There was a jam packed crowd of friends, fans and well-wishers of Dharmendra who had come from all over to attend the grand occasion. But Dharmendra had openly confessed to me he that he was very nervous and wanted to avoid attending the function. But I who was asked to introduce Dharmendra by my weekly persuaded him till he agreed to do an interview with me inside one of the makeup rooms of the studio. The mahurat shot was scheduled to be taken at 3 P.M. and every guest, including Dilip Kumar, Raj Kapoor and Dev Anand were already present in the studio, but Dharmendra had still not arrived I kept calling him in my own interest as I had to submit the interview by 5 P.M.

Dharmendra to Sunny to Karan: Tracing the Deol family tree through films

Dharam ji landed at Mehboob Studio just twenty minute before the shot was to be taken and he spotted me, put me in his car and took me to a make-up room which was far away from the crowd. He kept repeating, "Bahut ajeeb lagta hai, Bahut ajeeb lagta hai, Aur iss sab mein tereko interview bhi Dena hai. Main kya bolun yaar mere toh aankhon mein aansu aagaye. Tu likh dena kuch bhee, mere se accha toh tu jaanta hai ki aise mauke par ek baap ke dil par kya guzarti hogi. Likh de likh de yaar, Dharam banke, baap banke, kuch bhi banke, tu likh de, main kuch nahin kahunga".  I was in a state of confusion. The first shot of Sunny and Amrita was taken after Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor had performed what they called the mahurat rites, founding the clapper board and directing the mahurat shot and Dharam ji appeared only after the shot was taken.  Everyone wanted to know and see how Dharamji's son looked and were curious about Amrita Singh. But all attention was focussed on an ambassador from which a lady came out. That woman was the infamous Rukhsana Sultana and she grabbed more attention than even all the big stars around. Stories about her "Wild doing" as Sanjay Gandhi's advisor had spread all over the country.

Two days later the issue of my life came out, I had tried my best to put myself in Dharamji's shoes and had written what a father would have felt when his son took his first steps towards stardom and at around lunch time on that Friday, I received a call from Dharamji and I being a junior reporter could feel my heart in palpitation as I approached the black telephone. I could even feel my hands shake because I had heard stories about Dharamji going violent when he was angry but all that was my imagination running wild. Dharam ji was thrilled with what I had written and just said, "main tereko thank you kaise bolun ? Tune mere se accha mere feelings Ko samjha hai. Aaj Shaam Ko ghar pe aajao, daaru Peete hain".

That was the beginning of some of the most drunken days of my life because I had to compete with a man who once said," logon ne glasson se sharaab pee hogi, baltiyon se pee hogi humne to drummon ke hisaab se pee hai". He also gave me a new name, which was "mera daaru bhai".

It is more than 30 years now and so much has changed. Raj Kapoor is dead and so is Dev Anand. Dilip Kumar is lying very sick at 98,Dharam ji himself has retired and gone back to the soil and is the farmer he always wanted to be, only this time all his farms and films are in Lonavala and not in Saniwar in Punjab and what is more interesting is that Sunny is a father himself and his son, Karan Singh Deol will be on test as an actor today (September 20) when his first  film Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas directed by his father is to be released and will speak volumes for the grandfather, the son and the grandson.

War: Hrithik Roshan opens up on his physical alteration after Super 30

Posted by on PP in

In his last release Super 30, Hrithik Roshan was seen essaying the role of a teacher of mathematics. The film was a biopic of Bihar-based Anand Kumar, a teacher who guides underprivileged students for the IIT-JEE entrance examination. In his next-door middle class avatar, Hrithik impressed us all. From there, his next film War is going to be a big jump for sure.

In a recent interview, the actor opened up on how the transformation was a difficult one. At the time of Super 30's completion, Hrithik had quite a lot of fat in his body and was given only two months to shed it all. He further revealed that his transformation from Super 30 to War occupied him day and night since he either took care of his fitness, or practiced his dialogues, or went for medical check-ups.

The film will see Hrithik in a war with Tiger Shroff, arguably the present generation's biggest action star. Time and again, Tiger has declared himself as an ardent fan of Hrithik. It would be particularly interesting to see the big-screen union of these two fitness freaks as well as dancing sensations!

Pankaj Tripathi gets emotional on The Kapil Sharma Show as he talks about his love for Manoj Bajpayee while recounting a past episode

Kapil Sharma, the host of the comedy show asked the two actors about an incident from many years ago when Pankaj stole Manoj’s slippers from a hotel. Bajpayee revealed that Pankaj Tripathi told him this story when they were working together on the film Gangs of Wasseypur. He said that Pankaj reminded him how he had lost his slippers when he was staying at a hotel that Pankaj used to work at. Manoj told that Pankaj had confessed to taking them.

Pankaj Tripathi, however, clarified that was not what had happened and gave a clearer version of the story to the audience. “I got a call that Manoj ji is here. I used to do theatre back then so the kitchen staff knew it. I told them that whenever he orders anything from his room, I’ll be the one to take it. So I went there, met bhaiyya, said ‘Pranaam, even I am into theatre’, touched his feet and left. Next day he checked out and left for the airport. But he left a Hawaii chappal behind. The housekeeping supervisor said ‘Are! Your Manoj Bhai is gone but he left his chappal here’. I said don’t submit it, give it to me,” he said as the audience broke into laughter.

Explaining the reason behind it, Pankaj Tripathi said,“Kyun? Eklavya ki tarah agar main inke khadau mein apna paer daal lu (Why? If like Eklavya I, too, could put my feet in his slipper)...” Pankaj said but his voice broke as he got emotional. He tilted his head back to hide his tears. The two actors hugged and even the audience applauded and gave them a standing ovation.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Manoj Bajpayee’s Amazon Show The Family Man that premiered on the platform on Friday has opened to good reviews. In the series, he plays the role of a middle-class man who is also a world-class spy.

Exclusive: Ajay Devgn and Kajol’s Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior will definitely NOT clash with Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3!

Posted by on PP in

Ajay Devgn has scheduled his period drama, Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior, directed by Om Raut to release on January 10, 2020. Produced by him, the movie co-stars Saif Ali Khan and Kajol in the lead roles. The film was earlier supposed to release on December 27 this year but later the date was announced for January 10. Ajay Devgn will be seen portraying the role of the courageous military leader, Subedar Tanaji Malusare, Saif Ali Khan as Udaybhan Rathod, Kajol in the role of Lakshmi Bai, Luke Kenny as Emperor Aurangzeb and Ajinkya Deo as Suryaji Pisal.

Exclusive Ajay Devgn and Kajol’s Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior will definitely NOT clash with Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3!

Says a trade source, “There has been speculation among Ajay Devgn and Salman Khan fans that Ajay was planning to release Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior on December 20 as it’s complete. This would have meant a clash with his friend Salman Khan’s Dabangg 3 but that is definitely not happening. While the film is getting readied for a January 10, 2020 release, Taanaji may get slightly postponed because of post-production work. There has been a bit of delay in the shoot because of the heavy monsoon rains as some patch work remains and VFX is also being done simultaneously. A huge set has been put up in Film City and the remaining portions will be shot September. But Ajay and his team are putting in every effort to make sure that the movie is complete to hit the January 10, BO mark.”

The source adds that Ajay is pulling out all stops to make sure that Taanaji is one of the grandest period dramas one has ever seen. “It has spectacular action, including a sword-fight between Udaybhan Rathod (a Rajput officer appointed by Mughal general Jai Singh) and Tanaji Malusare, intense drama and promises to be a feast for the audience’s eyes. The director Om Raut has researched his subject thoroughly and has directed a movie that will not only touch everybody’s hearts but remain in their memories always. And for that, Ajay is willing to go all the way to make it so. Ajay and Salman will never clash for their movies. Apart from being friends, they are a phone call away and practical when it comes to the box-office. They are producers so they know a clash of movies never helps any producer.”

Taanaji was earlier supposed to release on 27 December, this year, which meant it would have clashed with Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor’s Good Newwz. “That’s also good that the clash is not happening, because it would have meant Saif (Tanhaaji) and Kareena too clashing at the box-office – which now won’t happen!” The source laughs.

Set in the 17th century, Om Raut's Tanhaji – The Unsung Warrior is based on the life of the brave warrior and military leader in the army of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Tanaji Malusare. He helped to recapture Kondhana fort near Pune from the Mughals and as a tribute to Taanaji's bravery, the fort was renamed by Shivaji as Sinhagad (Lion's Fort). Taanhaji was so well-known for his valour and bravery that the famous saint and poet Tulsidas had sung a powada (a Marathi ballad centering on wars) describing the bravery with which Taanaji had recaptured Sinhagad.

She is also seen learning the local language enthusiastically. But the internet is also asking who the cameraman is!

'We want The Cameraman to come and show that cute Face too,' wrote one of her followers. ‘The camera person is Ranbir Alia we all know he was with u,' said another. One even wrote, 'I only watched to get a glimpse of RK unfortunately'.

If it was indeed Ranbir, he is quite a good cameraman, we must say!

Alia is presently shooting for Sadak 2, her very first film with her father Mahesh Bhatt. And for fans who were disappointed to not catch a glimpse of Ranbir, wait till the promotions of Brahmastra begin!

Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan mobbed for selfies after they lose way to Pataudi Palace

Posted by on PP in

A day to go before Kareena Kapoor Khan turns 39. That calls for a grand celebration, right? Further, husband Saif Ali Khan had great plans. He wanted to make it more special for her. Hence, he planned to ring in Kareena's special day at their luxurious Pataudi palace in Haryana and the family set off accordingly. What happened next wasn't in the plan.

Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan mobbed for selfies after they lose way to Pataudi Palace

As per recent reports, the couple, along with son Taimur Ali Khan, hired a taxi from the Delhi airport to reach their palace. However, they couldn't recall the right route to their destination. Saif did what any of us would do. He decided to step out of the car and ask the locals for help. Upon discovering that it was none other than Saif Ali Khan, the locals started mobbing him for a selfie!

Like we say, fame comes with its share of troubles. Here's hoping they reached the palace safely...

Earlier this week, Kareena's lovely co-workers on the sets of Dance India Dance 7 also decided to surprise her with a lovely cake. An overwhelmed Kareena said she was deeply touched by all the love showered on her and would probably start crying when the show comes to an end!

Kareena Kapoor Khan reveals the sweetest gesture of Taimur Ali Khan that breaks her heart

Posted by on PP in

Taimur Ali Khan is one of the most popular star kids of Bollywood and is a favourite among the paparazzi. Kareena and Saif Ali Khan’s child is all of two and has already made his way through to millions of hearts with his cute antics that go viral all over the internet. Now, in a TV show, Kareena Kapoor Khan spoke about her son Taimur and his sweet gestures that melted her heart.

Kareena Kapoor Khan reveals the sweetest gesture of Taimur Ali Khan that breaks her heart

Kareena revealed that Taimur has just begun talking and is in the phase of asking questions. She shared that the star kid keeps saying ‘why’ for everything.

However, what breaks her heart the most is the words he says when she heads out for work. He says, “Amma, don't go.” Kareena further said, “It just breaks your heart. Sometimes, I just have to slip out without saying bye to him."

Kareena also revealed that the reason why Taimur calls her and Saif as Amma and Abba instead of mom and dad. "He can call me whatever he wants. But it's just that Saif and his siblings called their mother (Sharmila Tagore) 'Amma' and their father (Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi) 'Abba', so it's just like a thing now," she said.

Taimur often accompanies Kareena Kapoor Khan on the sets of her shoots. Recently, Kareena Kapoor took Taimur to an ad shoot and the picture of the mother-son duo from the set went viral. In the picture, Taimur is seen sitting on Kareena’s lap while they pose for the camera.

Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff's T-shirt War gets funnier

Posted by on PP in

Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff are owning the internet with their hilarious T-shirt war during the promotions of their much-awaited action spectacle War, releasing on October 2.

Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff's T-shirt War gets funnier

The T-shirt war is getting funnier now and of course, the fans are loving the banter between two of the biggest action superstars of our generation. Tiger began this war when he trolled his co-star and mentor with a picture of Krrish printed on it with a caption that read, "Hiding your fear behind a mask?" Hrithik then stepped out with a super funny comeback to Tiger. Hrithik trolled Tiger wearing a tee with a picture of Tiger in his superhero avatar from Flying Jatt and the caption read, “Flying away from this WAR already?”

Not one to take it lying low, Tiger fired a fresh troll missile at Hrithik this morning as he sported a T-shirt that read, “Khaali Haath Jaane Ko Taiyaar?”. The T-shirt had Hrithik’s picture from his iconic Kaho Na Pyaar Hai dance number Ek Pal Ka Jeena! Now, all eyes are on Hrithik for a huge comeback.

Yash Raj Films' War, promises to be the biggest action spectacle of all times. The high-octane action entertainer will see Hrithik and Tiger pitted against each other in a massive showdown. War will see the two superstars push their bodies to pull off jaw-dropping, death-defying stunts in a bid to beat each other.

War has been shot in 7 different countries and 15 world cities. Hrithik and Tiger have raised the bar of action by mercilessly fighting each other on land, water, frozen ice and air. Four action directors from across the world have been roped in to choreograph the biggest, never seen before action spectacle on screen. Produced by Yash Raj Films, War is set to release in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu on the big national holiday of Gandhi Jayanti (October 2nd). It also stars Vaani Kapoor playing Hrithik’s love interest in the film.

IIFA 2019: Hosts Ayushmann Khurrana and Aparshakti Khurrana forgot the script, reveals Tahira Kashyap

Posted by on PP in

You do know that Ayushmann Khurrana used to be a Radio jockey before he became an actor, right? In fact, he was also a musician. So, playing with words and taking over the stage with his charm isn't difficult for him. No wonder he was chosen to host the big IIFA night, especially after he's literally been the man of the hour with so many amazing films. He and his equally cool brother Aparshakti Khurrana picked the mic and had some fun.

IIFA 2019: Hosts Ayushmann Khurrana and Aparshakti Khurrana forgot the script, reveals Tahira Kashyap

And it looks like the fun was impromptu indeed. It is no secret that award show hosts usually follow a flow and also a script. In the middle, they forgot the script. But good performers are capable of putting up an even better show when allowed to be spontaneous. The Khurrana brothers chose to crack their own lame jokes! It definitely worked, but we weren't even aware of the secret until Ayushmann's wife Tahira Kashyap let it out.

On a related note, the couple absolutely turned heads as they posed for the shutterbugs! Ayushmann looked like a true gentleman in his neat white and black suit while Tahira was a gorgeous sight in her pink gown!

There's a reason why we love throwback photos and videos. The gorgeous divas of today were once adorable toddlers. It is amusing see their munchkin avatars, isn't it? Janhvi Kapoor, who made a prominent debut with Dhadak in 2018 and is going steady into the industry, was only a cute kid, full of herself, once. Her latest throwback is proof!

Janhvi Kapoor 's dig at her toddler self will crack you up

In her Instagram story, she shared a picture of herself as a kid. Sporting a head full of curly hair and a pair of chubby cheeks, she looks as adorable as ever! But it is the text that cracked us up. 'Don't know if I had more hair on my head or my upper lip,' she wrote. LOL!

Janhvi is presently preparing hard for her forthcoming film Kargil Girl, a biopic on IAF pilot Gunjan Saxena, the first female on-combat pilot of the country. She also has  RoohiAfza, horror comedy starring Rajkummar Rao opposite her, on her plate.

IIFA 2019: Stray dog robs Salman Khan's green carpet appearance, leaves internet in splits

Posted by on PP in

Remember the time when Sidharth Malhotra was walking a fashion show for Rohit Bal and a stray dog joined him with much swag? Every dog has its day, and the one we're talking about today, found its fame straight at the IIFA venue. Or should we say it stole the limelight from none other than Salman Khan?

This hilarious video from this year's IIFA ceremony held on Wednesday is going viral for all the right reasons. We saw Salman walking in and a hundred cameras started flashing. It was then that everyone caught sight of a dog who was in a mood to follow the superstar and even managed to dodge everyone and do so. Salman radiates the vibes of being an animal lover we guess but little did he know that his green carpet appearance was going to be seized by a stray...LOL!

A post shared by Viral Bhayani (@viralbhayani) on

The internet didn't miss out on the fun. Some of them wondered as to who let the dog out there, but it was quite a show-stealer, we must say.

Salman, looking dapper in a navy blue suit, rocked the rest of the night though. No competitions there!

Sadak 2, which is Alia Bhatt's first ever association with father Mahesh Bhatt, is in progress. We hear there are frequent brainstorming sessions going on as well. Bhatt, whose films always emphasise on making music an integral part of the storytelling, has been personally sitting with the composers and singers.

And it looks like the pretty woman has befriended Ankit's little daughter quite fast! On his Instagram, Ankit shared a photograph wherein Alia is all smiles as she poses with Aryaa, who is snuggled in her mother's arms. 'No caption needed...Aryaa and Alia ???????? Both are looking sweet hai na ??,' he wrote. We agree!

Just in case you didn't know, Alia is also turning a singer for Sadak 2. Earlier, she crooned a version of the popular track 'Samjhawan' from Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, and fans simply loved it! We believe Alia, along with Ankit, is presently working on the song she will be singing.
