Not Hrithik Roshan, but Shah Rukh Khan will be in Kabir Khan’s next

SRK, Kabir, Hritik

Kabir Khan managed a casting coup in Tubelight when he got Shah Rukh Khan to do a cameo in the film. We don’t know yet if the actor will share screen space with Salman Khan or not but the fact that he is in the same film as his Khan buddy was enough for us. But not for Kabir it seems. Now the director will helm a short film which will have SRK in the lead. It’s for Dubai tourism.

As per a report in Bollywoodhungama, Kabir will shoot the video in May with SRK. Leading casting director Mukesh Chabra is looking to hire actors for the same and has put up posts on his Facebook page. You all might remember that Shah Rukh Khan, who is the brand ambassador of Dubai Tourism, shot a video for them where he can be seen shocking tourists with his presence. There were also scenes where he is seen serving the guests of a restaurant stunning them. We wonder what will he be seen doing now.

Kabir Khan’s next feature film will be with Hrithik Roshan about which everyone was very happy about. The film will be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. Hrithik had told a daily about it saying, “Working with Kabir is going to be fantastic. And I feel very assured (working) with Sajid.” Kabir on his part had added, “Hrithik, Sajid bhai and I have been very eager to work together for a while now. So it’s happening, for sure.” We also told you how the director and the actor are in the process of finalising the actress and in all probability, it is Deepika Padukone who will bag the role opposite the actor. That will be a great pairing, we haven’t seen them together before and thus, this film is something we are damn excited about.

Is Hrithik Roshan considering writing a book?

Actor Hrithik Roshan is thinking of writing a book on his life, but says he doesnt have a flair for writing. Be it Karan Johar’s much talked-about biography ‘An Unsuitable Boy’, Yasser Usman’s ‘Rekha: The Untold Story’ or actor Rishi Kapoor’s autobiography ‘Khullam Khulla’, celebrities are telling their Bollywood stories in an uncensored style. Even superstar Shah Rukh Khan is working on his autobiography.

Hrithik, who has seen several ups and downs in personal and professional life, admits that the thought of coming out with a book has crossed his mind.

“I have thought of it, but I am not a writer. I am still thinking of it,” Hrithik said. The ‘Kaabil’ star also confessed that he doesn’t harbour any dream of sitting on a director’s chair, unlike his father Rakesh Roshan.

He said: “Being a director requires internal calling. I don’t have that calling. People might say that I am very involved, I have idea s but having an idea about something, tweaking something or adding something is different from creating from scratch. I don’t think I have that.”

After the success of ‘Kaabil’, Hrithik has not signed any other film project yet.

What Hrithik Roshan Has To Say When Asked If He & Sussanne Are Reuniting

Hrithik Roshan, Sussanne Khan

Hrithik Roshan, Sussanne Khan

Recent blind items and rumours have been suggesting a possible reconciliation between Hrithik and Sussanne – and it’s not difficult to see why. The two seem to be spending more time together these days, both with family and without. Sussanne has been vocal in her support of Hrithik’s latest film. And most recently, they went on a “triple” date with Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna, making it look even likelier that a patch-up is on the cards.

However, according to DNA, Hrithik has shot down these rumours. He simply said that he and Sussanne are friends and they love and care for each other, but “that’s about all.”

As for Sussanne and I being seen with Akshay and Twinkle, I must admit I’ve grown very fond of them.

Interestingly, the author claims earlier in the piece that “of late, it’s not just friendship” and that Sussanne’s friends “have been teasing her about Hrithik.” Hmm!

“Hrithik Went & Cried To The Entire Industry, Tried To Sabotage My Career” – Kangana Ranaut

Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut

Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut

On of Bollywood’s biggest scandals last year was the controversy that took place between ex co-stars Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut. This will most definitely go down in history as one of the worst public spats to have happened in Bollywood. It all started when Kangana called Hrithik her silly ex, and the latter couldn’t take that sitting down. He alleged that Kangana was imagining things and that an imposter was exchanging emails with her under the pretext of being Roshan. Legal battles were fought, PR teams were functioning on overdrive, lawyers were giving out statements, until one fine day, when this suddenly died down.

It’s been a while now, and while Hrithik has steered clear of talking about this controversy, Kangana spoke about the incident with Firstpost. Here are excerpts.

There were instances when he (Hrithik) was going and crying to the entire industry, wanting them to sabotage my career, and people were calling me and saying – ‘He met us, he has showed us proofs and (do you) want to meet us because we want to know your side of the story as well?’  But I was like, it is none of your business.”

She also spoke of when she was threatened.

The threats were quite open, weren’t they? They said they would release some statements, they would reveal something, say something… ‘We will expose her and everyone will be shocked’… something along those lines… It is not that I knew this sort of game plan that would be unleashed against me. So I thought there would be some reveal but there was none and obviously those were just threats.”

Wow, this really is ugly!

“I Was Restricted To A Relationship That Was Behind Closed Doors” – Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut, Hrithik Roshan

Kangana Ranaut, Hrithik Roshan

The Kanagana Ranaut-Hrithik Roshan saga was one of the biggest talking points last year. Both of them, at different times, alluded to the incident and tried to defend their side of the story.

In a recent interview to Mid-Day, Kangana said:

I was dragged to court for being who I am. I was restricted to a relationship that was (carried out) behind closed doors and I fought it fair and square. People (can) talk rubbish, but they can’t decide how I lead my life. I felt stigmatised. I would wake up to (media reports) of hideous emails, which I hadn’t written. I am a certified screenwriter from the New York Film Academy. I don’t write such crap.”

She added:

Someone I once shared a beautiful equation with did it… and with such malice. It did hurt me.”

Kaabil movie review: Hrithik Roshan’s performance takes the film to soaring heights

485599-kaabil-new

Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam’s Kaabil will hit the theatres tomorrow morning on January 25. The film is a revenge drama and it’s the first time Hrithik and Sanjay Gupta collaborate on a film. It is also the first time we see Yami and Hrithik together on 70mm. While the response to this latest Rakesh Roshan production venture promos has been great, we decided to give you a lowdown on whether you should spend your money and time to watch Hrithik’s latest outing at the theatres…

What’s it about

It isn’t the first time we are watching an actor play a visually impaired character on screen. Naseeruddin Shah and Om Puri both wowed us with their impeccable acts in 1980’s Sparsh. The challenge of playing a character with a physical disability, in this case visual impairment is massive. It is not so much to do with the way the character is moving or walking, but it’s a mind game – how does he behave, respond and act under the situations he is put in. These intricacies and subtleties of approaching a character aren’t taught in any film school, neither can you ape it by watching any other performance. In Kaabil, Hrithik plays Rohan Bhatnagar – a visually impaired guy who doesn’t let his shortcoming become his identity. He decides to marry Supriya (Yami Gautam) who too is blind and they both dream of buying the ideal house and living a normal life. Things turn bad when a local politician Madhav Shelar (Ronit Roy) and his brother cast their evil eyes on Rohan and Supriya’s love story. From this point onwards, Kaabil becomes a revenge drama, one man’s fight to dish out his own justice to those who did wrong to his loved one.

What’s hot

Hrithik Roshan takes his biggest career risk with Kaabil. For an actor whose name is synonymous with good looks, vanity and superstardom, to play a simple ordinary guy who isn’t bothered by the way he looks on screen or how many packs he has hidden behind his shirt, for him Kaabil is a huge risk. Does it pay off ? Yes, by leaps and bounds. Kaabil works simply because Hrithik takes it to another level. His honesty and openness in letting us get a glimpse of Rohan’s world is endearing. Right from the opening frame where we watch Rohan make breakfast to the very last scene you are spellbound by Hrithik’s craft. You are waiting for him to mess up, or maybe there will be a flaw and he will get out of character, look in the camera, but that doesn’t happen even for a second. Kaabil also works because you watch characters and not caricatures. Hrithik and Yami’s chemistry is outstanding the idea to cast these two opposite each other just fantastic. Sanjay Gupta’s style is sexy yet tame. He doesn’t go all out with lighting up the frames or focussing on the VFX, instead the spotlight is on the script and building up a strong narrative. Brothers Ronit and Rohit Roy shine in their roles and bring in the right baddie sauce to the dish. The dialogues are crisp and Hrithik’s monologue just when the interval sets in will get the theatre up on their seats. Also Rajesh Roshan’s soundtrack is a throwback to the 90’s when melody reigned supreme. Urvashi Rautela’s item song Haseeno Ka Deewana provides the right welcome break to an otherwise serious scenario.

What’s not

Kaabil has a lazy first half and we wished the pace picked up early on. The VFX in some scenes is botched up and Mumbai’s familiar terrain (Marine Drive scenes) is mismatched with some unnecessary props. Yami’s scenes in the second half and her dialogues with Hrithik also feel forced. Kaabil is dark and violent. There is very little scope for relief and humor in this script. That can become tiresome after a while.

What to do

Kaabil is Hrithik Roshan‘s career best performance. Watch and marvel at what can easily be termed as the finest performance to come out of Bollywood in a long time.

Rating:4.0 out of 5

Hrithik Roshan Talks About Remarriage

Hrithik Roshan

Hrithik Roshan

Hrithik Roshan is currently riding high on all the appreciation coming his way for his performance in Kaabil. But on the personal front, there’s nothing much for him to talk about. The superstar and his ex-wife Sussanne Khan parted ways in 2014 but the two continue to share an amicable bond. While some fans of the former couple are rooting for them to get back together, many can’t help but wonder if Duggu is single and ready to mingle. When the popular Bollywood magazine Filmfare asked the actor about his thoughts on remarriage, he said:

Today, I cannot think of remarriage. I feel satiated, I feel content.”

After all, singlehood is suiting him good, don’t you think?

The Makers Of Kaabil Are Accusing Team Raees Of Foul Play

Raees vs Kaabil

Raees vs Kaabil

While movie buffs have their hands full with 2 promising films starring Bollywood superstars releasing this week – the makers of Kaabil and Raees are reportedly at loggerheads. Although the main leads, Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan wished the best for each other, things don’t look very good as of now.

Kaabil‘s director Sanjay Gupta and producer Rakesh Roshan have reportedly cried foul as the distributors have given them 60-40 screens (60 for Raees and 40 for Kaabil) against the 50-50 ratio initially promised to them. According to a report in DNA, the exhibitors may have done this as they were promised Bahubaali 2 if they gave more screens to the SRK starrer.

Rakesh Roshan spoke to DNA about the alleged bias and said:

I wont comment upon any other film as that’s not my territory. I will only talk about my film Kaabil. We are shocked, disappointed and terribly hurt! I had not expected this. I spoke to all my concerned exhibitors last week, showed them one hour of the film and requested them that we should go 50-50 screens and they agreed. All over the world from Dubai, UK, Australia and New Zealand they have given us 50-50 screens except in our industry. That’s very hurtful to me and I feel betrayed because after talking to them, they did this. With these clashes, we have to avoid unfair play. Every producer feels my film is the best where he is concerned and where two films are coming if we avoid this and make both films 50-50 screens then it’s better for the film industry.”

Your thoughts?

Hrithik Roshan Talks About His Relationship With Sussanne Khan

Hrithik Roshan, Sussanne Khan

Hrithik Roshan, Sussanne Khan

In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, Hrithik Roshan spoke at length about Kaabil, milestones in his career, his children and his family. Photos of him holidaying and going on dinner dates with his ex-wife Sussanne Khan have been doing the rounds, and many of his fans hope that the gorgeous couple reconciles. But it looks like Hrithik and Sussanne are in a good space and they wouldn’t want to change anything. When asked what his relationship with Sussanne is like, here’s what he said –

My relationship with Sussanne is peaceful. We are loving parents and friends to each other. I need all my equations to be harmonious. If I feel that I am not contributing to a person’s growth or vice versa, the whole exercise is pointless.”

That sounds nice!

Hrithik Roshan is one of those superstars who can easily deliver those Rs 200 crore hits – read trade buzz

Hrithik Roshan

Hrithik Roshan

Hrithik Roshan is one of the most talented superstars of all time. The actor has not only impressed us with his looks and his fantastic dance moves, but also his acting prowess.He has time and again delivered hits. In fact, he is one of the only four superstars to have a film in the top 10 highest grossers of Bollywood. In fact, such is Hrithik’s super-stardom that a film’s fate has never really affected his popularity. He has a massive fan following and is one of the most bankable stars in the business. So on Hrithik’s 43rd birthday today, we decided to take a look at the actor’s current standing at the box office…

Our trade expert – Akshaye Rathi (exhibitor and distributor) said, “Hrithik is clearly someone with massive potential and that’s clear with some of the huge hits that he has delivered. Right from his first film to the other films that he has done with his father or then Dhoom 2 and Agneepath, he has showed us how much potential he has to earn well at the box office.”Rathi also added, “While his last couple of films haven’t done well, it is not coz of his performance not being up to the mark or his fan following not being big enough. It is unfortunately a few wrong choices that he has made, in terms of the films he has been doing. And I think by only changing that, his career can take an absolute U-turn for the better.”

Rathi also went on to praise Hrithik and said, “There is nothing missing in him. He has the looks, he has the ability to act, he is a phenomenal performer. So he has got everything working for him, except for his choices. The day that changes for the better, I don’t think there is going to be anything that can stop him. If you look at his career graph, he has always played this very ideal sort of hero in every film of his. If you look at all the other big superstars of this country, they have always had this onscreen ability to laugh at themselves or to let the audience laugh at them or the audience to laugh at their cost. And I think that is something that establishes a huge connect between the audience and a star. So I think that is one thing that Hrithik needs to do. Projecting this near perfect image is (not always ideal). The day he drops his guard, he will have a massive connect with the audience. With the right kind of scripts and the right kind of films, I don’t think there is anything that can stop him from becoming the biggest superstar in the country.”

So what can help Hrithik explore his true potential? Akshaye has a few suggestions, he said, “With the right kind of scripts, I think he is one of those superstars who can easily deliver those Rs 200 crore hits. There are two kinds of performers – actors and stars. An actor’s job is to deliver a great performance, while a star’s job is to sell tickets (and earn HUGE amounts of money). So he is currently a star trying to be an actor. If you look at his performances, they are phenomenal. But now he has to harness his potential at the box office as a star.”

Hrithik is all set to woo the audience with his next, Kaabil. As Akshaye explains, “Kaabil is a very smartly budgeted movie. So I am pretty sure that the kind of returns that would come in, even though it is releasing with another big film like Raees, it will be enough to ensure that everyone associated with the film will make money. Then there is Krrish 4 and a couple of more, so I am sure it will be onward and upward for him. He has a good career ahead of him and he will continue to be a reigning superstar in the country.”

Well, we’re sure that trade’s this positive remarks will make Hrithik Roshan‘s birthday extra special. And if Kaabil manages to perform well at the box office, then we bet that would be the best present for Hrithik.
