Akshay Kumar to BEAT Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan in the box office game- find out how!

Akshay-Kumar-020816

He is rightfully termed as the most bankable star of Bollywood.

Salman Khan‘s film Sultan might have broken many records, but Akshay Kumar is one superstar who sets his own records. The Khiladi Kumar might just create history if his film Rustom enters the Rs 100 crores club this year. And  if trade predictions are to be believed then there’s no stopping Akshay from setting Rs 100 crores hattrick record.

Akshay‘s films may not do business like Sultan or a PK or even a Chennai Express, but Khiladi Kumar is surely the most bankable star we have today. Since his debut inSaugandh, he has been consistently churning out successful movies.

This year started on a high note for Akshay, with his movie Airlift doing well both critically and commercially, not to forget it entered the Rs 100 crores club domestically. Few months later, he gave another Rs 100 crores hit domestically with Housefull 3. On August 12, the actor will be back again on silver screen with one of his hottest movies in trade circles, Rustom. This will be his third movie this year and if it touches 100 crores as well, this will be a record where a top star delivers three back-to-back Rs 100 crores films in a year. No Khan in Bollywood has ever achieved this feat.

Of course Rustom is releasing alongside Hrithik Roshan‘s Mohenjo Daro and both are big films to start with but as per our trade expert and editor of Super Cinema Mr Amul Mohan, even this face-off cannot stop Akshay from delivering a hit. Mohan said, “ObviouslyRustom is a big film and its trailer has been hugely liked by the audience. In fact, both films (Rustom and Mohenjo Daro) are big and of course when two big films release on a same day they eat into each other’s business.” He also added, “I don’t want to compare both the movies but Akshay may have an edge due to his successful stint at the box office this year with two super hits Airlift and Housefull 3 with both doing Rs 100 crores plus business at domestic box office and due to all round positive response to the trailer of Rustom.”

While this feat of giving three 100 crores successes in a  single year may be unheard off for an A list male star, it’s definitely not new for Bollywood, if one remembers correctly, Deepika Padukone gave, not three but, four Rs 100 crores plus successes in the year 2013- Race 2, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express and Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela all joining Rs 100 crores club.

We can only hope the Rowdy Rathore star delivers another Rs 100 crores success and create a record which will be difficult to break as no other top male star releases more than two movies in a year.

Ajay Devgn’s Shivaay trailer to release on 7th August in Indore!

492544-shivaay

Woohoo! Only four days to go for Shivaay’s trailer!

Ajay Devgn’s ambitious project and directorial debut film, Shivaay is all set to release this Diwali! However, the actor is leaving no stones unturned to promote his film rigorously. We know damn well that the film is clashing with Karan Johar’s directorial, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil that stars Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Fawad Khan and Anushka Sharma. With such a huge starcast, KJo’s film easily gets an upper hand with respect to promotions. But that doesn’t bother Mr Devgn as he has a tight marketing strategy in place! If you notice, the actor has already starting promoting the film much before the release date while we still haven’t seen the first look of Ae Dil’s actors!

In the last month, Ajay released posters of all the characters of the film including his as he created the Shivaay rage. And now we found out that the trailer of Shivaay will be releasing on 7th of August i.e. this Sunday in Indore! Well, the trailer of the film has been already screened for close friends and family but a separate screening of trailer will be held for fans in Indore! Isn’t that great? The actor a few hours ago tweeted, “Just finished the family & friends Shivaay trailer screening. Can’t wait to launch the Shivaay Trailer on 7th Aug in Indore with fans.” Post which, he also shared a picture clicked along with the team of Shivaay.

Katrina’s sexy avatar, multiple kisses – 5 things you need to watch out in Sidharth Malhotra and Katrina Kaif’s Baar Baar Dekho trailer!

kat1

The film is directed by Nitya Mehra and produced by Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani

Baar Baar Dekho has been trending for some time thanks to the makers’ smart strategy of promoting that infection Kala Chashma song before the launch of the trailer.

The song became one of the fastest videos to hit 20 million views. Now let’s get ready for the trailer!

Last night we had been the part of the Baar Baar Dekho trailer launch, and we have to admit we were very surprised with the effervescence and lovey dovey moments in this Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra’s romantic drama. We were actually amazed with the comic element in the trailer, as well Katrina’s super hot avatar (more on that later).

The trailer will be out in some time, so till then be happy with our five takeaways from the trailer that we got a preview of:

Katrina Kaif is sexy as never before and Sid’s suave avatar

baar-baar-dekho-katrina-sid-759-1

If I say Baar Baar Dekho will feature Katrina Kaif in her sexiest avatar, I will not be far from the truth. Katrina Kaif has always been portrayed as the bubbly and cherubic girl in her movies. While Baar Baar Dekho will still retain that quality of hers, she will also be seen in the sexiest costumes you have ever seen her in, and it’s not just confined to that orange bikini! As for Sid, this is just another film that will earn him more and more female fans, thanks to his suave avatar.

Sizzling chemistry

If you have two hot actors as your leads, you can’t expect the chemistry between them to go way below sizzling hot. Baar Baar Dekho depends entirely on the scorching hot chemistry of Katrina and Sidharth, and trailer provides ample opportunities for that. It also helps matters, when the film has…

Multiple kissing scenes

katrina-sidharth-baar-baar-dekho-photo

While Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra are not averse to onscreen kissing as seen in their previous films, Baar Baar Dekho might have more kisses than any of their other films. We have lost count of them in the trailer, so imagine how many will feature in the film. Or wonder if Pahlaj Nihalani will be lenient to the film.

Time Travel

baar-baar-4-1

Despite the makers claiming this is not a time travel movie, the trailer doesn’t dispose off the idea at all. We see Sid doing a fast forward of his life at various important junctures to reach even 2046, where both he and Katrina are seen in old avatars. During that year, Sid learns he is not in good terms with his wife, and that he will die soon. So to rectify all that, he travels back in time using several algorithms (he is a professor), and alter the past. The film may remind you of The Time Traveller’s Wife, but the comic tone of the trailer suggests it will be a light-hearted version of the same.

Marriage trouble?

647lol_072916041058

During a certain scene of a too-spoilerish trailer, Katrina’s character is wanting to marry Sid’s. However, Sid’s character is not to keen to get hitched (perhaps his time travelling affliction has something to do with it). This also resonates a little part of Katrina’s own real life love story with ex, Ranbir Kapoor, where she wanted to marry him and he didn’t wanted to, as far as rumours go.

Shah Rukh Khan’s film FAN comes to life for Amitabh Bachchan

485678-fan

Thankfully the situation did not spiral down as badly as in the film…

Shah Rukh Khan released his film Fan, earlier this year. Fans saw SRK in a never before avatar – playing a fan himself, and that too a borderline psychotic one, who eventually goes full madhouse on his favourite superstar! Didn’t you gasp in horror at the scene where the crazy fan succesfully trespasses into his favourite star’s home? That would be outrageously scary if it ever happened in real life. And guess what – it did for Amitabh Bachchan!

A self-confessed fan of Amitabh has landed in police custody after he allegedly scaled the compound wall of the megastar’s residence in suburban Juhu with the intention of displaying his “talent” before his idol. That sounds so damn familiar. That’s exactly what Gauarv in Shah Rukh Khan‘s Fan wanted to do for his star Aryan Khanna. The Gaurav in this incident is 23 year old Banwari Yadav.

Yadav hails from Bihar and was arrested for allegedly trespassing into ‘Jalsa’, Amitabh Bachchan’s residence in the early hours of Monday, a Mumbai police official said Tuesday.

Yadav, who claims to be a singer, entered Big B’s house by climbing the compound wall on Sunday afternoon, he said. He wanted to showcase his talent to the megastar. Thankfully, the Shenshah star’s staff was alert and quick to respond to the situation, once they spotted him. They handed over the ‘fan’ to the police.

A case has been registered in this regard and investigations are underway, he said. Meanwhile, Yadav was produced before a local court which remanded him in police custody till August 7.

The horrific tale of a fan going crazy on his favourite star might not be new to our B-town celebs. In an interview Salman Khan had revealed how a thief had entered his house and everyone in the Khan family initially took him to be a friend of someone in their home. Thankfully, soon enough family members realised the truth!

Faisal Khan was hesitant to act in Sex Chat with Pappu and Papa

6D6_varsha-thm

The actor appears in a cameo in the web series…

Actor Faisal Khan says he was “a bit hesitant” to act in the web series Sex Chat with Pappu & Papa as he feels his thinking was blocked beyond a limit.

Starring Anand Tiwari, Kabir Sajid, Sanjeeda Shaikh, Alka Amin and Sachin Pilgaonkar, the series marks the directorial debut of Ashish Patil, Head of Y-Films, the youth division of Yash Raj Films.

The story revolves around the Watsa family, featuring a curious seven-year-old boy, Pappu – who shoots the most outrageous questions to his Papa, Anand. The father attempts to answer them to the best of his ability – initially with a lot of awkwardness and eventually with a lot of fun, simple anecdotes.

All this while his own father – the very traditional, conservative and possibly ‘khadoos’ Pitaji – keeps questioning his actions.The Durex and Y-Films’ five-part fictional web-series, after two episodes, has moved onto ‘condoms’ in their third episode. The Watsas are joined by three more special appearances. They feature Urvashi Rautela and Faisal.

And to take the viewers back to a classic cricketing experience, stand-up comedian Vikram Sathaye has voiced all the cricket sequences of the episode.

Faisal said in a statement: “At first, when I was offered to be a part of this series in a special appearance, I was a bit hesitant as I have never been a part of any such project. My thinking was blocked beyond a limit.

“That’s when Ashishji (Ashish Patil) stepped in and convinced me and showed me the faith they had in this project. This is an amazing and informative series. Do watch it as I think there’s something to learn for everyone in it.

“Appreciate the courage and effort it took to make this series and share this openly because ‘Isme sharmaane ki kya baat hai?’ (what’s there to be shy of?)”

A Durex spokesperson shared that it is an attempt to “raise awareness around the use of condoms for a safer sex is the first step to combat” a disease like HIV.

“Through this episode, we aim to educate consumers about condoms and how it can help them in being safe from sexually transmitted diseases like HIV. Also, for every video that gets shared online from the entire web series, we will be donating one condom to Family Planning Association of India (FPAI) for their family planning and HIV prevention programs across India,” the spokesperson added.

HC dismisses copyright infringement plea against Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro

Good news for the Ashutosh Gowariker directed film…

Ashutosh Gowariker’s magnum opus Mohenjo Daro has been in trouble since the time of release of the trailer. The artistic liberty taken by the maker to show the Indus Valley civilization did not go down well with many. Also, there was a plea against the film filed on grounds of copyright infringement. While to get answer on the ‘artistic liberty’ fiasco we might have to wait for the release of the film, the copyright infringement plea has been rejected by the High Court.

Akashaditya Lama had dragged the film’s story writer, director and producers to court accusing them of stealing his story for the Hrithik Roshan starrer. The HC not only dismissed the plea for any relief against the film, but also imposed a cost of Rs 1.5 lakh on Lama. The court has ordered him to donate the money to Nana Patekar Foundation, after Ashutosh Gowariker’s lawyer, Ravi Kadam, requested the money to be given to a welfare organization.

According to Lama’s Wikipedia page,  the script writer who has written for TV serials like Chehra, Kasak, Kumkum, he also has written a play called Mohenjodare.

Releasing on August 12, Mohenjo Daro is an adventure cum romantic film directed by Ashutosh Gowarikar. It is Hrithik Roshan’s second collaboration with the actor after Jodhaa Akbar. The film’s music is composed by AR Rahman. It marks the debut of Pooja Hegde into Bollywood. The chemistry of the lead jodi has impressed quite a few people. It has been shot primarily in Bhuj, Gujarat and Mumbai. The film is all set to clash with Akshay Kumar’s Rustom on the same day.

Are The Bachchans Mad At Aishwarya Rai For Doing Intimate Scenes With Ranbir Kapoor?

Rajeev Masand‘s blind item in Open Magazine alluded to it and various online portals straight up said it. It seems like the Bachchan family is mad at Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for shooting intimate scenes with Ranbir Kapoor. This has happened before when the family was not very happy to see their to-be-bahu lock lips with Hrithik Roshan in Dhoom 2 (which turned out to be the most underwhelming kiss of the century). In Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Ash refused to kiss Ranbir, but they apparently have many steamy scenes together, some which involve licking chocolate off each other. Reportedly, the Bachchan’s want the portions to be edited and they’ve communicated this to Karan Johar.

But sources close to some publications say that this news is baseless and they don’t interfere with Aishwarya’s work. Good only.

Begum Jaan Is All About Feminine Power In Full Glory: Vidya Balan

vidya-balan

Vidya Balan is known for her power-packed and soul-stirring performances but in Srjit Mukherji’s Begum Jaan she says she is venting her anger.

The National Award winner acknowledges she has finally begun to express it and become more vocal, contrary to the belief that only men can exhibit their displeasure.

Begum Jaan, a Hindi adaptation of Mukherji’s stellar Bengali offering Rajkahini, stars Vidya as a brothel’s madam in Punjab during India’s partition in 1947. Though actress Rituparna Sengupta essayed the lead role in the Bengali version, Mukherji’s first choice for the adaptation was Vidya.

“I am glad that Srijit decided to come back to me. It is feminine power in full glory. You see the charm, the sensuality, the compassion, but you also see the wrath of an angry woman. I think it is also giving vent to a lot of my angst,” Vidya told IANS during an outdoor shoot of Begum Jaan in Patjor village of Jharkhand’s Dumka district.

“As girls, particularly, all of us carry some amount of angst in us. I think we have been brought up to believe that only men can express anger. She becomes undesirable when a woman expresses anger: the notion is that this is not how a good girl behaves. There is a conditioning which we can’t get rid off,” Vidya said.

But what makes the actress angry?

“Lots of things. When I went through rejection down south, I thought I had dealt with a lot of things and with criticism and I guess, I was dealing with those emotions to make sure they don’t overpower me so that I can go on. I am an eternal optimist and I manage it all with a smile but deep down I don’t think I have really actually dealt with the anger and rejection,” the actress said.

“I would not express it before: which is why I didn’t deal with it; but now I have begun to express it and I have become more vocal,” she asserts.

Recently Vidya’s comments supporting actress Kangana Ranaut in her bitter conflict with Hrithik Roshan related to their alleged relationship, sharing of personal pictures, messages and police complaints, ruffled quite a lot of feathers.

“I supported a girl who had the courage to stand up for herself. I don’t know them personally well enough to know what the issues are and even if I did I am not anyone to sit and judge. I just felt it was incredible for a girl to have said that. I am not saying it’s Kangana versus Hrithik or vice versa. I have no reason to please neither. People look at things conveniently and myopically,” she said on the issue.

Attesting to her beliefs in woman empowerment and gender equality (she has raised the issue of gender pay gap in the film industry), the actor married to producer Siddharth Roy Kapur concedes marriage tests those beliefs.

“I thought I was the coolest woman who believed in equality but marriage actually tests those beliefs and those values. A lot of times I would end up making choices that were placing Siddharth before me and he would actually say ‘you don’t have to do this’. The funniest thing was, I wasn’t aware that I was actually doing it,” Vidya explained.

With Kahaani 2 wrapped up, the actress is looking forward to Begum Jaan and the Kamala Das biopic in Malayalam. Produced by Vishesh Films and Play Entertainment, Begum Jaan marks Mukherji’s directorial debut in Hindi films.

“This is the hardest I have worked in my career. The scripts get more and more exciting and the range of scripts coming to me have only expanded in the last nine years which is very exhilarating,” she added with a smile of contentment.
