While he made his debut with Hero, Sooraj Pancholi is yet to return to the silver screen with his second film. Amidst several speculations about his forthcoming ventures, the actor has now turned his attention towards promoting a healthy lifestyle. Sooraj has always been very passionate about fitness and taking it to the next level now he has decided to venture into hospitality business.
Sooraj Pancholi is all set to open a health cafe in Mumbai, in partnership with his sister Sana who already owns a fine dining restaurant in Goa. Talking about the same, the actor said, “A major part of fitness is what you put into your body and I see massive potential in this. Whenever I travel abroad, I always seek out and visit health cafés, something we don’t have enough of, here. I am currently working on a fitness app in collaboration with my trainer. But I always wanted to do something in the health food space.
While there are no plans of franchising the concept yet, the generous actor hopes to put his sister’s experience in the hospitality sector to good use. “It’s too early to decide that. Right now, we have only decided to open a standalone cafe. We will offer a variety of health foods like salads, smoothies, wheat-based pancakes and healthy desserts. We plan to tentatively start off by year-end or in early-2018,” he added.
As mentioned before, there are many rumours about Sooraj Pancholi’s upcoming films as the actor has been signed by Remo D’Souza for a film co-starring Ajay Devgn. Besides this, news is also that he has been signed by Kumar Mangat’s Panorama Studios for a film.]]>" target=_new> by
She may be busy with forthcoming Indian and international projects but when it comes to causes she believes in, Amy Jackson definitely takes some time for it. The cause of animal welfare has always been close to her heart and be it raising her voice against cruelty towards animals or raising funds through an NGO for the betterment of animals, Amy has always fought for animal rights.
Taking the noble cause to the next level, the actress has now decided to co-produce a short film with her friend creating awareness about cruelty to animals and how to prevent it. She even plans to launch the film on social media and thereafter send it to film festivals.
Talking about it, Amy added, “We will shoot for the film soon. I will also be a part of it, though I won’t act in the film. I will be speaking about my experience of making the movie. It will have a few real stories. I believe that cruelty to animals is a serious issue and it’s important that it’s discussed more.”
Amy shares a ‘life-changing’ article that made her aware about cruelty towards animals. “A 5-year-old female cross-breed dog in Malta named Star made international headlines in 2011. She had been found by Animal Welfare Department officers, shot at point-blank range and buried alive after being covered with cardboard and a tree trunk. She died later.” The actress felt strongly about the incident and decided to do something about it with the short film.
On the film front, Amy Jackson is gearing up for one of the most anticipated releases of the year, 2.0 which stars Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar in lead roles. The film, which is a sequel to Robot, is a bilingual that is slated to release in October 2017.]]>" target=_new> by

Mamta Kulkarni, who was a known face in the late 80s and 90s in the film industry, has been the talk of the nation for all the wrong reasons. The actress has involved the drug racket that was worth Rs 2, 000 crore.
On April 13, 2016, the police had arrested two people with controlled drug Ephedrine worth Rs 12 lakh.

Ever since the infamous Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover fight took place, they are making headlines. While Sunil Grover has been maintaining a strong silence about his return to the show, the rumour mills had started wagging stating that he had recently shot for an episode of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.
Sunil Grover decided to put an end to all the rumors by stating that it was a blatant lie and that he had not shot for any episode of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’. In the same breath, he also clarified that the rumors about him doing a comedy show with another channel is also baseless as he was focusing on live shows and nothing else. Echoing his words, a source from ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ said that, with Kapil Sharma busy shooting for his film Firangi, how can it be possible that Sunil Grover shot for an episode of the show.
Sunil Grover, who is popularly known for his multi-faceted personality on the show, was an integral part of a charity event in Assam last week. Additionally, he is now all set to do one more show in Delhi this week, wherein he will be seen having the versatile actor Ali Asgar for company.]]>" target=_new> by
It has been well over three years since Arbaaz Khan and Malaika Arora Khan decided to end their marriage and part ways. Like in any relationship that has hit rock bottom, there is always one person who wants to end things, while the other looks to repair the broken bond. Similarly in the case of Malaika and Arbaaz, the latter gave their 18 year marriage time, to work things out and get back. However, now after three years, Arbaaz has finally decided to move on.
In fact on the latest season of Koffee With Karan, Arbaaz Khan who was a guest on the show seemed at easy with his divorce topic and it looked like he had come to terms with his broken relationship. Now, in a recent interview with a leading daily, Arbaaz opened up more about what he went through, his current relationship status and of course Malaika Arora.

At the start of the year, Shah Rukh Khan has kick started the promotions of his film, Raees, on a big scale. The actor even took the promotions to next level when he decided to take a train journey from Mumbai to Delhi. During the promotions, a man had passed away due to the heart attack at Vadodara railway station.
Fahreed Khan Pathan had died of heart attack on January 23 in the massive crowd that had turned up to catch a glimpse of Shah Rukh Khan. SRK was travelling by the Kranti Express from Mumbai to Delhi to promote Raees. SRK had even condemned the tragic incident that took place.
Then, Mumbai-based advocate and activist Abha Singh met GRP officials on February 10 to request them to file a FIR against Shah Rukh Khan and the company that was handling the promotion of the film. Later, a youth Congress worker had also filed an application in a local court on February 17 seeking directions to the police to make them file a complaint against SRK.
This was followed by an order sent to Government Railway Police by a judicial magistrate’s court to submit an inquiry report on the incident within 45 days on March 2.
Now, it has been learned that Shah Rukh Khan, who was also the co-producer of Raees, has been sent summon to appear in court to record statement along with Excel Entertainment. Deputy Superintendent of Police (Railways), Tarun Barot, said that they have issued summons to Shah Rukh Khan and co-producer of the movie, Excel Entertainment, which had sought permission from the railways for the film’s promotion on a train. They have given them 7 days time to file their statements.
According to Tarun Barot, Shah Rukh Khan should appear in person within a week to explain his side about the entire Vadodara incident. Tarun informed that they had sent summons to Excel officials earlier too. He said that, instead of appearing in person, they had sent their lawyers, which was not allowed. He has advised both the parties to give their statements in person. If they do not comply, they will inform the court and take action as per its order.
Apart from Shah Rukh Khan Raees also starred Mahira Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui and was helmed by Rahul Dholakia.]]>" target=_new> by
His voice is iconic and he is often a popular choice for epic dramas, so when the makers of the Malayalam film Randamoozham (Second Turn) were casting, they decided to rope in megastar Amitabh Bachchan for a prominent role in the film. The film, based on the novel by the same name written by M.T. Vasudevan Nair, is a retelling and revised version of Mahabharata with a different perspective.
Reportedly, Amitabh Bachchan has been confirmed for the role of Bhishma. According to the film’s director N A Shrikumar Menon, he is apt for this powerful role. From what we hear, the filmmaker revealed that they are planning to get an ensemble cast with actors from different languages for this epic drama.
Speculations were on a rise stating that Amitabh’s daughter-in-law and actress Aishwarya Rai too will be playing an integral part in the film. But it seems that the makers rubbished the news. On the other hand, Malayalam superstar Mohanlal will be seen in the role of the protagonist, Bheema.
Very few may be aware that Randamoozham, that has won many literary awards, traces the story of Mahabharata from Bheema’s perspective, the second Pandava. From what we hear the film is supposed to be one of the most expensive films in Malayalam cinema with an extensive budget.]]>" target=_new> by
A couple of years after the release of the second instalment of the much successful romance franchise Aashiqui, there were rumours of a third one in the making. Adding to the intriguing elements was the debut collaboration of Alia Bhatt with her father, Mahesh Bhatt.
The romance drama, Aashiqui 3 will not only be getting the father-daughter together but it will also see the actress paired up with her alleged real life beau Sidharth Malhotra (after Student Of The Year and Kapoor & Sons). While neither of the actors have spoken much about the film, recently Alia Bhatt opened up about the progress of Aashiqui 3 in a recent interview.
Alia Bhatt revealed that she is definitely doing the film since she loved the concept. She further mentioned that she is eagerly awaiting the script which is being written by her sister Shaheen Bhatt. Maintaining that they would need something concrete to work on, Alia jokingly added that Shaheen is to be blamed for the delay. However, clarifying that her sister is busy as she is working on a couple of other scripts, Alia also mentioned that she is equally enthusiastic about the film.
Last seen in Badrinath Ki Dulhania with her favourite co-star Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt is gearing up for two forthcoming films, the Ranbir Kapoor starrer superhero drama Dragon and Gully Boy, starring Ranveer Singh that is inspired by the story of real life street rapper in Mumbai.]]>" target=_new> by
Kabir Khan may not be involved in the sequel to his blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai (Ali Abbas Zafar is directing the same) but the filmmaker has already made plans post his current project and it is equally intriguing. Considering the filmmaker’s love towards war dramas and patriotism, we hear that Kabir Khan will venture into the digital space with a similar subject.
Reportedly, Kabir Khan plans to make a web-series set at the backdrop of World War II that will be directed and produced by him. Described as a war epic, the series is being touted as the Indian Band of Brothers. Further, it is being said that the series which will be comprising of about 10 episodes will touch upon varied subjects, including exploring Subhash Chandra Bose’s Indian National Army as well as the contribution of women in the army.
Besides this, it has been learnt that the series will be built on a massive budget, even more than a couple of Kabir’s films. Said to be shot extensively abroad with a few portions in India, the series is currently in the scripting stage. Apparently Kabir Khan will start work on the same once he wraps up his much ambitious film Tubelight. The star cast and other details are yet to be finalized.
Tubelight, that also marks the debut of Chinese model turned actress Zhu Zhu, too is a period drama set amidst the 1962 Sino-Indian war with Salman Khan playing the lead and it also stars Sohail Khan in a prominent role.]]>" target=_new> by
RAW is in this case an acronym for Sushant Singh Rajput’s Romeo Akbar Walter. The film’s announcement splashes an intriguing silhouette-poster of Sushant Singh Rajput suggesting mystery and conspiracy. Sushant plays a RAW agent in the film. Apparently he will spend time with real-life RAW agents to get into character.
Says director Robby Garewal, “Sushant was my first and only choice for the part. His dedication and commitment are what the role needed. He is fully committed to doing whatever the role requires. Plus, he has the box office clout, especially after playing Dhoni.”
Director Robby Garewal who last directed the farce Aloo Chaat in 2009 makes a surprising comeback to movie moving with this big-budget espionage film.
Says Robby, “I’ve been busy making ad films. There was no real compunction to return to feature filmmaking after directing three films Samay (featuring Sushmita Sen), Mera Pehla Pehla Pyaar and Aloo Chaat. My livelihood was being taken care of by making ads. I wanted to make a feature film only when I felt I had a story to tell.”
The story that Robby has to tell in Romeo Akbar Walter is topical, volatile and…well, RAW. Says the director enthusiastically, “I am happy ground-breaking espionage films like Special 26, Baby and Naam Shabana are being made. It makes my job so much easier. I don’t have to spend time in my film explaining the scenario to the audience; I can plunge right into the plot.”]]>" target=_new> by
Varun Dhawan loves his newly-found stardom, and he is determined to keep it intact. Badrinath Ki Dulhania has given his career a search engine. He now looks for projects with a purpose behind it.
Explains Varun Dhawan, “Doing entertaining films is of course my main concern and target. But I also want a message to be delivered through my movies, though nothing preachy or sermonizing. But it should be there, something that the audience can take home and think about.”
Varun is treading very carefully with the films he does. “So far I’ve agreed to do only one film after Badrinath Ki Dulhania. And that’s Shoojit Sircar’s next. There’s also my father (director David Dhawan)’s film Judwaa 2. That’s about it for now.”
The kids seem to love Varun Dhawan, and the actor is aware of it. “I think there is a connect with family audiences. If they didn’t like what I was doing my films wouldn’t work.”]]>" target=_new> by
Although parliamentarian turned state minister Navjot Singh Sidhu has displayed habitual bravado, dismissing all attempts to get him out of The Kapil Sharma Show with, “What I do in my free time is my business”, sources within the Show indicate that Sidhu may not be able to hold on to his moderator’s kursi on Kapil’s show for too long.
“With Sunil Grover and others on mass leave, The Kapil Sharma Show is in serious trouble. Sidhu Paaji says he won’t leave the show. He keeps insisting if Kirron Kherji can be an active parliamentarian and a TV host why can’t he be the same? However we hear there is tremendous party pressure for him to leave the show as he has been given the very important portfolio of Culture in the new Punjab government,” says a source in the know from within the show.
“Kapil wants Sidhu Paaji to stay. Sidhu Paaji wants to stay. But we don’t think he will be able to find the time,” says a source from the show.]]>" target=_new> by
Disha Patani like most celebrities has her own share of ardent fans and followers. Similarly like most other celebrities, Disha too has had her share of close run-ins. Revealing about the time she was stalked by a fan, the actress who was recently seen in the Jackie Chan film Kung Fu Yoga detailed the incident that happened in Delhi.
Talking about the incident, Disha said that it happened when she was in the capital city and a male fan landed up at the hotel she was staying at on two consecutive days to meet her. While that may have seemed normal, the fan’s behaviour started to change when he began following her around the city - from the set to a shopping mall and even to a movie theatre. However, things got out of hand when the same fan picked a fight with the hotel staff when they stopped him from meeting her, resulting in the hotel bouncers being called in, to escort the troublemaker from the premises.
Further talking about the incident, Disha added that though she is overwhelmed by the love of fans she has received, when she got to know about this particular fan that turned into a stalker she was shocked. Terming the entire episode as an unpleasant experience Disha added that she was relieved once it was over.]]>" target=_new> by

Richa Chadda, who has been travelling of late for her international projects, recently faced an ordeal whilst travelling to Los Angeles. She found herself in midst of chaos in Abu Dhabi when a sudden storm struck UAE leading to massive delay in flights.
Richa, who was on her way to LA as mentioned before, was stuck in Abu Dhabi for almost 18 hours. The airline she flew by had several women with infants and children, senior citizens and three injured passengers who weren't given instant help by the airlines until it was highlighted several times. Only a couple of hours later did the airlines official take some steps to give basic food and water.
Most passengers due to the unforeseen delay didn't have enough money or local currency to buy food or water and some exhausted their money in the first few hours. In a situation where the airline is meant to give accommodation, it wasn't provided to anyone barring those few who had the resources to check into the transit hotel at the airport.
Richa came to her fellow passengers rescue through social media by reaching out to airline authorities and even helped the passengers by giving them basic aid. Richa, whilst stranded took to Twitter to tweet to the External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to bring the condition to her notice. She posted this series of tweets saying, “Guys plz RT the next series of tweets to help out a bunch of fellow Indians stuck in transit at Abu Dhabi Airport, terminal 1. Many Indians stranded here at Abu Dhabi airport since morning due to a storm.No luggage,no accommodation,no visa to get out @SushmaSwaraj. There's senior citizens,women with infants.@EtihadAirways handing out meal vouchers n tiny snack packs. BUT nowhere to go! @SushmaSwaraj.”
Speaking about the experience, Richa said, "It was a nightmare. I did my best to help out wherever I could. I bought bottles of water for people that didn't have local currency on my credit card. I wish it was handled better. I felt terrible for senior citizens, people with injuries and mothers traveling with infants. "
Richa Chadda was flying off to the US to concentrate on her forthcoming film Love Sonia which also stars popular Hollywood celebrities like Demi Moore.]]>" target=_new> by

“My thanks and gratitude for all the love. I am non-existent without the love. My public identity is just because of the love that you shower. I embrace it. It fills my heart and leaves no place for hate”, read the first part of Grover’s note. Further talking about his future plans and his reason to smile, the comedian continued, “I just want to surrender myself to good work, good people who acknowledge my intentions genuinely. And yes am feeling a little lost at this moment and nervous too. Don’t know what the future holds for me. But thank God my son Mohan is sleeping next to me. As I look at his innocent face, I feel lucky to have such a reason to smile. It reassures me that no matter what Tom will be beautiful. New...Yet beautiful.”

If that wasn’t all, we had also reported that the film which also features Bhumi Pednekar will be hitting screens on the Independence Day weekend this year. Well now we hear that the makers of the film have announced that Toilet – Ek Prem Katha will hit screens on Friday, August 11, 2017.
Shockingly, continuing the year that began with the clash of Hrithik Roshan and Shah Rukh Khan on the big screen with Kaabil and Raees going head to head, now it will be the Aksahy Kumar Vs Shah Rukh Khan battle with the latter’s next venture that is directed by Imtiaz Ali and also featuring Anushka Sharma slated to hit screens on the same day. Interestingly, while Akshay has been a rather bankable star with his recent releases doing considerably well at the box office, Shah Rukh Khan, whose films since Dilwale (save for Dear Zindagi) have underperformed seriously needs a hit.
While, it is still too early to predict which of the two films viz. Toilet – Ek Prem Katha or Shah Rukh Khan untitled next will emerge as the winner, the audience will certainly be in for a treat this Independence Day.]]>" target=_new> by
The recent spat between Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover seems to have generated more interest and heat than all of Kapil’s jokes and gags put together. Sadly, all of Kapil's moves to bring back Sunil Grover have failed.
Speaking of Sunil Grover, he is presently away from Mumbai and also from all the tensions and drama that has ensued after he quit ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’, the renewal of which is due soon with the channel. Sources close to Sony Entertainment Television say that they are now just not interested in renewing their contract with Kapil Sharma, after the recent spate of events, which has drastically affected the show’s TRPs. Sony Entertainment Television, which was planning to renew its contract with ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ for a whopping Rs. 110 crores, has now called off the deal, although there has been no official announcement for the same.
There were also rumours stating that despite the fact that many senior officials of Sony TV went to both the ‘warring’ parties (Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover) hoping for a reconciliation, they only met with zero results. Which meant that the show will have to run without Sunil Grover, who was known for his multi-faceted personality and a poker faced humour on the show. If the latest episode of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ was anything to go by, then, it won’t be wrong to say that the livewire presence of Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar was missed by everyone.
Even though Kapil Sharma is not happy with the way in which the events have unfolded in the last few days, he has not let that come in the way of his film commitments. Reports suggest that, Kapil Sharma has now apparently cancelled all his shoots for ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ and has left for Bikaner, where he is currently shooting for his film Firangi, which is being directed by Rajiv Dhingra.]]>" target=_new> by

However feature film still need to be submitted for the physical viewing of the jury members. Explains Nihalani, “Feature films cannot be viewed and certified online. They have to be submitted for physical viewing by board members. However producers only need to visit the censor board once with their films. Once the film is viewed all paperwork will be done online.”]]>" target=_new> by
Today music plays a rather important role in ensuring the success of a film at the box office. Considering that a film’s music releases much before a film, its success goes a long way in ensuring that particular film gets a good opening. Thanks to this, the music rights of a film have become rather big earning points for producers and filmmakers. Now we hear that Sony Music has apparently shelled out a whopping amount for the music rights of Salman Khan’s Tubelight.
If what we hear is to be believed then, Sony Music has acquired the music rights of the Indo – Chinese project directed by Kabir Khan for a staggering Rs. 20 crores. While such astronomical amounts being shelled out for the music rights of films that feature big stars isn’t something new what perked out interest was the fact that unlike conventional Bollywood releases Tubelight features just three songs. Compounding this is the fact that the said three tracks once again contrary to conventional music tracks in films are situational scores meant to take the story forward.
Given the above reasons, the only question that springs to mind is was it really worth spending Rs. 20 crores?]]>" target=_new> by

By now we all know that the second part of the film Bahubali that released back in 2015 is gearing up to hit screens soon. Titled Bahubali – The Conclusion, the film promises to answer the question that has been on everybody’s mind of why Katappa killed Bahubali. Well, recently at the pre-release event of the film in Hyderabad, filmmaker Karan Johar, who is the co-producer and distributor of Bahubali, got talking about the film. In fact, Karan even termed it as one of the greatest films ever.
Talking at the event, Karan Johar said, “This is the biggest movie event in the history of Indian cinema and I have to say I’m amazed. This is pure dedication, pure strength and this is what I want to go back and teach.” Further talking about the film, KJo compared it to Mughal-E-Azam, one of the celluloid marvels from the yesteryears and added, “Bahubali, 67 years later, has beaten the magic created by Mughal-e-Azam on screen. Rajamouli’s cinema has soul, his personality has gumption and I don’t think I even have 10% of it”.
Responding to Karan Johar’s magnanimous words, the producer of the Bahubali franchise Shobu Yarlagadda thanked the filmmaker for helping them with the release of the film in Hindi while at the same time praising the filmmaker’s foresight saying, “We went to Karan Johar to take Bahubali out of Tollywood. When he saw the film, he could see the potential in it. Since he believed in the film and put his name on it, we could conquer the Bollywood market. Thank you, Karan Johar, for being a part of this journey”.
Bahubali – The Conclusion, that stars Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah Bhatia, Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishnan and Sathyaraj is slated to release April 28.]]>" target=_new> by
Earlier this year in January, we had reported that KriArj Entertainment had signed a six film deal with John Abraham’s production house. Now we hear that the makers of Rustom will be collaborating with Kyta Productions for their next untitled venture.
Though no official confirmation is available on this new deal, a source close to the developments stated that KriArj Entertainment and Kyta Productions have apparently roped in Nishikant Kamath to direct the film. If that wasn’t all, the source further adds that the yet untitled film will feature none other than Abhishek Bachchan in the lead role.
Apart from this, though the makers are keeping details under wraps, we hear that the film will be a thriller drama and Abhishek who has already read the script is pretty kicked about commencing work on the same. While no specific prep work for the film is needed, the shoot for the same is expected to commence later this summer in May, with an expected release date towards the end of the year in winter.

After much speculations discussions and changes, Nikhil Advani’s ambitious film Lucknow Central recently went on floor with Farhan Akhtar in the lead. Adding to the star cast will be some renowned names from the Bhojpuri film industry and those are none other than Manoj Tiwari and Ravi Kishen. From what we hear, the two will have a small yet significant role in the film.
Lucknow Central is set against the backdrop of a jail, where Farhan plays the role of a prisoner, aspiring to be a Bhojpuri singer and is a huge fan of Manoj Tiwari and admires him. Ravi Kishan has already shot his cameo and they shared a good working relationship with each other. The film is currently being shot in Lucknow itself and the cameo with Manoj Tiwari will be shot once they are back in Mumbai.
It was difficult to get both the Bhojpuri superstars for the film together and it is indeed going to be exciting to watch them share screen space with Farhan Akhtar.
Ravi who filmed his portion in Mumbai, adds that despite being a cameo, it is important to the script. “It's a powerful role of a Chief Minister who appears at a very significant juncture. I've already shot for five-six days, another two-three days' work is remaining,” informs Ravi.
Ravi is all praise for Farhan; describing him as a ‘thorough gentleman’ he informs that even when Farhan was not required, he'd hang around to cue them. “His patience and dedication is commendable and my respect for him has increased several folds,” added Ravi.
Producer Nikkhil Advani shares, "We were glad to convince Manoj Tiwari and Ravi Kishan, who are superstars of Bhojpuri cinema, to play interesting cameos in the film and their camaraderie with Farhan is to watch out for."
Produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Emmay Entertainment and Motion Pictures, Lucknow Central is directed by Ranjit Tiwari and is slated to release on September 15.]]>" target=_new> by
When he made his Bollywood debut with Heropanti, Tiger Shroff was appreciated and applauded but what intrigued the audience the most was his impeccable dancing skills and flexible action sequences. He continued the latter with Baaghi taking it a notch higher. But it seems that Tiger Shroff wants to pursue his passion for dance and action beyond films.
Sharing his dream with the fans and audience, Tiger Shroff reportedly revealed that it has been a life-long dream for him to start his own academy for dance and martial arts. The actor stated that many parents have approached him expressing their desire to turn their kids as skilled as he is in the field of dancing and martial arts. While the actor refrains himself from giving out recommendations, he expressed his desire to start his own school in order to provide them appropriate training and even spoke about calling professionals from across the world to teach the kids, adding that it is a long term plan.
Overwhelmed by the love received by kids who try to imitate him and with the parents who often keep sending him videos of their children, Tiger believes that this is the most honest kind of appreciation. Reciprocating the love he receives from his kid fans, Tiger wants this dance academy to foster their talent further.
On the other hand, the actor confessed that he himself has never received formal training as he believes that he is a visual learner and added that all these skills are self-taught.
Last seen in A Flying Jatt, Tiger Shroff is now gearing up for Sabbir Khan’s musical Munna Michael and the sequel to Baaghi.]]>" target=_new> by
Earlier this month, filmmaker Karan Johar shared his joy with the rest of the world with an announcement that he had become a proud father to lovely twins. While all his well-wishers congratulated Karan, the producer – director shared more details of the wonderful and exciting news. However, not many may know that the delivery was one that was fraught in trouble with both babies being born premature.
Now well after the delivery of his children from the surrogate mother, Karan Johar has decided to open up about the tense moments of his life when he became a father, while at the same time, coming out in support for premature baby care. Read on to see what Karan has to say…
“I have previously shared the wonderfully exciting news of the birth of my children, Roohi and Yash. None of the many overwhelming emotions that I am currently feeling as I take my baby steps into parenthood would have been possible without the marvels of medicine and the progress it has made today. Even the most anticipated events can sometimes leave us shaken, confused. And events that occur without any warning can turn our worlds on their very heads. My children were born two months premature and worryingly underweight. Like any person in this situation and on the brink of fatherhood, my heart sank.
Knowing that there were complications with my babies’ birth owing to how soon it was, I was terrified. All I wanted to do was hold them and protect them but they needed to be in the NICU. It was painful to see how tiny they were… Thankfully, I had a great support system. Roohi and Yash were in the hands of the most competent and patient doctors. Something that had its roots in an ordeal, soon turned into an experience that I will never forget.
With the guidance, support and solidarity of Dr. Avasthi and the unfailingly vigilant care he provided for the twins, they are both on their way to a happy and healthy childhood. As someone with a voice, I want to reach out. Millions of preemies are born every year… but babies are resilient. With the right kind of care, they stand just as good a chance of survival as anyone else.
Organisations like Surya Hospital are stepping up during this time of need and reaching out to help. Via their campaign #SavePreemies, Surya Hospital aims to gather some goodwill and save as many preemies as possible.
Having a premature baby is something you don't expect to happen to you. The whole experience has ignited a passion in me to help premature babies get the best chance they can… to help those in anguish who want the best chance of survival for their early born babies. Premature babies, when provided with the right kind of care, have just as good of a shot of making it, as babies born on time. If your baby is a preemie, don’t be discouraged. Seek help. Wonderful organisations like Surya Hospital can nurture your child towards normal growth.
If your baby is born premature, don’t lose faith, don’t lose heart. Brilliant doctors like Dr. Bhupendra Avasthi and Dr. Sonal Saste have dedicated their lives to this wonderful endeavour. I can only share my own experience and hope someone takes heart from it. I feel blessed to have had the care my children received while at the NICU and for all the prayers and support I had – but I urge anyone in the same situation to remember that your baby has the best chance of a long, happy life, too. Don’t lose hope.”]]>" target=_new> by
Shah Rukh Khan is a very doting father. The superstar makes sure to fulfill his kid's wishes. It turns out that Shah Rukh Khan's daughter Suhana Khan is a huge fan of Youtube sensation Superwoman aka Lilly Singh. As a loving father, Shah Rukh Khan will be hosting a private session for his children with Lilly Singh at his residence this summer.
With over 11 million audience, Lilly Singh has kick started her worldwide book tour this week. Her book How To Be A Bawse is about conquering the world. In her tour, she is planning to blend stand up comedy and talk about positive approach towards life. She will be visiting India in the month of April and will be on a three-city tour –Mumbai (April 19), Hyderabad (April 20) and New Delhi (April 21).
Francis Coelho, Managing Director, Event Speciale — who is hosting the tour said, “ Lilly Singh has been an inspiration to millions of people around the globe irrespective of the age, gender, community. Having risen from depression, she struggled in the real world to be the entrepreneur that she is today. Every time she visits India, there are quite a few Bollywood celebrities, who do want to meet her and be inspired by her story as she is a motivational figure in that sense. Infact, Shah Rukh Khan will be the first Bollywood celebrity, who will meet her, when she comes to India."
This won't be the first time Shah Rukh Khan will be meeting Lilly Singh. During the first Youtube Fanfest four years ago, his daughter Suhana had shown interest in meeting her. So, as a doting father, SRK took his daughter to the fanfest and created frenzy as none of the audience had expected him to show up. Later, he had hosted Lilly Singh at his house and introduced her to Suhana and her friends.

When Aanand L. Rai announced about his venture with Shah Rukh Khan playing a dwarf, it definitely took everyone by a surprise. Now, we hear that yet another megastar is all set to play a similar role. Reportedly, Rajinikanth will be seen as a dwarf in the forthcoming sequel to his famous sci-fi, 2.0.
Rajinikanth will apparently be seen in five different roles in 2.0, which includes his role as a scientist and a robot (like the prequel) along with two dwarfs and a baddie. Besides him, Akshay Kumar too will be playing a negative role and he will be seen sporting over 12 different avatars.
Being one of the most expensive films, 2.0 that also stars Amy Jackson as the leading lady, will have extensive VFX. Directed by S Shankar, we hear that the teaser of the film will be releasing during the occasion of Tamil New Year, April 14.

After a series of protests and violence on the sets of the Rajput-Mughal era period drama Padmavati, the film came to a halt with the director constantly switching locations over the fear of chaos. However, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has now finally released a statement clarifying on his film and requesting the mischief makers to allow him to shoot in peace.
In the statement, Sanjay Leela Bhansali not only asserted that the film will leave every Indian proud but he also put several misconceptions to rest and thanked the fraternity and media for their support.
His statement read, “Here are too many misconceptions and misunderstandings surrounding my film, Padmavati. I feel the need to clear the air once and for all. Padmavati is a film about a revered Rajput Queen and her valiant fight for honour and dignity. It's a film that every Indian will be proud of.
My team and I have carefully researched every aspect of information available on Rani Padmavati for making the film. There was never any alleged romantic scene, dream sequence or imaginary song between Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji in the script. I repeat, there NEVER was and NOR is there any such scene between Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji.
While we have clarified this multiple times across various media platforms, the vandalism against the film deeply pains me. This violence is unjustified and not acceptable as it is merely based on hearsay, allegations and accusations, and not on facts. As an artist, I too believe in the freedom of expression, but I'm also aware of the responsibility that comes along with this freedom. We do not intend to hurt the sentiments of any community and can confidently say that Mewar will be proud of the film.
My team and I have met with some of the Rajput leaders, who, upon receipt of our clarification, have agreed to support us and have also signed our letter and promised cooperation in support of the making of the film. I hope this puts to rest all the misconceptions regarding the film. I take this opportunity to thank the film fraternity and the media, who have constantly spoken in support of the film and protested against any kind of violence vandalism against artists and their freedom to express.”

Even though the Shashank Khaitan directed Badrinath Ki Dulhania has proved to be a smash hit at the Box-Office, the film's hero Varun Dhawan landed himself in an unexpected controversy over a much talked about 'molestation' scene in the film. Varun Dhawan, who has never spoken about his take on the issue, finally broke his silence recently.
Speaking to the media recently, Varun Dhawan said that if two people out of ten do not like something that did not get counted as mass opinion. He added he was totally fine with the people who felt that way are entitled to their opinion. Citing an example of the film 3 Idiots, Varun Dhawan questioned that while many did not get offended to a character's confusion over a Hindi word for 'balatkar' (rape), he finds it strange to see so many objecting to his scene, wherein the scene was meant to portray how his character Badri's male ego gets shattered. While clarifying that while they did not mean to hurt anyone's sentiments, he also apologised to those who found the scene offensive.
On the films' front, Varun Dhawan is presently shooting for David Dhawan's Judwaa 2, wherein he will be playing a double role for the very first time. The film stars Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu and will release on September 29, 2017. Additionally, Varun Dhawan will also be seen in Shoojit Sircar's untitled next.]]>" target=_new> by
The past week has been a rather tumultuous one for TV comedian Kapil Sharma. After reports of his mid-air fight surfaced stating that Kapil Sharma misbehaved with his crew while in flight, we now hear that Sunil Grover, who was at the receiving end of Sharma’s ire, has decided on launching his own show.
In fact, Sunil Grover took to the social networking platform facebook to announce the same with an image. Posting an image of the poster Grover simply added, “Delhi see you on the 1st April. Yo!". The poster which features him dressed as his popular character of Dr Mashoor Gulati from The Kapil Sharma Show also features Kiku Sharda in the upcoming gig scheduled to take place in Delhi on April 1.]]>" target=_new> by
After watching yesterday’s episode of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’, the viewers were not that happy with the same. Even though Kapil Sharma was putting up a brave front as if nothing had happened, one sorely missed the lively and lovely presence of Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar, Chandan Prabhakar, Sugandha Mishra and others on the show. Yesterday’s episode, despite the fact that it had an array of comedians in the form of Sunil Pal, Ehsaan Qureshi and others, seemed to be struggling.
Meanwhile, the latest update on Kapil Sharma is that the national carrier Air India (on which the whole drama took place) is now planning to issue a warning to Kapil Sharma over his unruly behaviour, which caused inconvenience to many who were on board the flight. Ashwani Lohani (Chairman, Managing Director-Air India) had reportedly sought a detailed step by step report on Kapil Sharma’s behaviour on the Melbourne-Delhi bound flight. Based on the reports, it’s being said that Ashwani Lohani will be finalising the exact nature of the warning.
For the still uninitiated, the entire drama ‘starring’ a high-spirited Kapil Sharma unfolded on the Melbourne-Delhi flight (AI 309) on March 16. After seeing his team members eating lunch without him, Kapil Sharma reportedly became too loud in his expletives and also landed up throwing a shoe on Sunil Grover. The whole episode caused major inconvenience to many passengers who were traveling on that flight.
The whole episode cost Kapil Sharma not just his show’s crew members, but also many Bollywood stars, who are now reportedly having a second thought about coming on his show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’.]]>" target=_new> by
Aishwarya Rai Bahchan is shattered by her father’s death. “It was expected. The doctors had warned the family. But nothing prepares you for the death of loved one, even if it is inevitable. Aishwarya has been keeping up a brave front. But she has taken her father’s death very badly. Though it was her mother who accompanied Aishwarya and her daughter Aaradhya to all her international events, she was very close to her father. Not just Aishwarya, Abhishek too was extremely close to Krishnarajji,” says a family friend.
The power couple has for now withdrawn from professional commitments. “Until Aishwarya recovers from her grief Abhishek would be by her side. In fact the entire Bachchan parivar is with her. On the day after the death, Amitji cancelled his public event with Shah Rukh Khan and Shah Rukh stage-managed the event on his own,” says the friend.
Apparently the release of the next Amitabh Bachchan starrer Sarkar 3 was postponed by a month from April 7 to May 12 to accommodate the tragedy in the Bachchan family. Says a source, “One of the reasons why Sarkar 3 got postponed was because it didn’t seem right for Bachchan Saab to promote a film at a time like this.”]]>" target=_new> by
This weekend Kapil Sharma goes it alone on his show. Almost. He will be seen entertaining his guests without the pivotal help of Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar. The boycott after Kapil’s drunken unruly mid-air behaviour, will continue next week. Grover and his colleagues won’t be recording for Kapil Sharma Show on Sunday or Monday.
Panic now prevails on The Kapil Sharma Show with Grover snubbing all of Sharma’s olive branches and turning down Navjot Singh Sidhu's offer to mediate. A close friend of Sunil’s reveals, “Sunil is neither interested in a meeting with Kapil nor is he physically or emotionally up to it. He is now taking off for an unknown destination with his wife and son for a recuperative holiday.”
Kapil Sharma did try to meet Sunil Grover but was met with a far from enthusiastic response. Says Sunil’s friend, “Sunil won’t meet Kapil. Kapil’s regret and apology happened only after his mid-air behaviour was exposed. If no one spoke about it he would have continued in his own way. On numerous occasions he has insulted Sunil and the other team members. Unforgivably, Sunil and the others overlooked Kapil’s growing highhandedness. ‘Chalo chalo show record karte hain,’ they’d say every time after his rude behaviour. Not this time. Kapil needs to know he is wrong. There is no going back.”
Interestingly stars who have graced the show this weekend have called Sunil Grover anxiously. Says Sunil’s friend, “Sunil received a call from Manoj Bajpai who is on the show this weekend. Others have also called to ask what has happened between Kapil and Sunil.”
In the meanwhile Sunil spoke up for the first time saying, “I am very relaxed, very introspective, deep in thought about my future plans…I am just watching all the tamasha that’s going on. It’s very entertaining.”]]>" target=_new> by
In her forthcoming film Maatr, Raveena Tandon takes on the subject of rape with a brutal force. The film lays open some ugly truth about the way the judicial system fails a rape victim. The experience of working in the film has left her so shaken she had a tough time dubbing her lines.
Says the actress, “Some portions of the film are so stark real and brutal I had a tough time watching myself on screen. I couldn’t immediately dub my lines while watching what we’ve shot. It is so real and disturbing. I had to stop, gather my strength and return.”
Raveena Tandon has earlier done a film on marital rape Kalpana Lajmi's Daman for which the actress won the National award. Says Raveena emotionally, “This is a topic I feel very strongly about. I’ve three daughters (two of them are adoptive) and I worry about their safety constantly. And why just daughters? Are sons safe anymore? Is anyone safe any longer?"]]>" target=_new> by

A couple of years back we saw the release of the Salman Khan starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan, a story about a simple Indian man helping a mute Pakistani girl child to find her way back home to her parents. While this film was a smash hit at the Box-Office, its songs were equally big chartbusters. Prominent amongst them was the Adnani Sami sung “Bhar do jholi meri ya Muhammad, Laut kar main naa jaaunga khali”. The intensity of the song is so massive that it, even today brings tears to the eyes of the listeners.
Speaking of Adnan Sami, he had recently performed at the prestigious Wembley stadium in the United Kingdom. On his invitation, a wheel chair bound terminally ill girl turned up with her parents and a nurse. Adnan Sami, then, introduced the little girl to the audience and also revealed about her wish of seeing him perform live. Adnan, then, came down to the girl and sang the aforementioned track with utmost dedication. Both, the child and the reverberation of the extremely soulful song not just got tears in the eyes of the girl’s mother, but also the spell bound audience.

If these weren’t enough, then, he also tried his acting in Bollywood. The film that he chose to debut with was Bombay Velvet. Despite having huge expectations from the film, it turned turtle at the Box-Office.

Even though the petite Sonali Bendre may not be seen doing films, that hasn’t lowered her passion for facing the camera. She been often seen judging reality shows, which are mostly related to children. A few months earlier, readers may know that, she had turned author with her bestselling book ‘The Modern Gurukul: My Experiments with Parenting’. Buoyed with the success of the book, the graceful actress has now planned to pursue her passion further with ‘Sonali’s Book Club’.

Readers may recall that a few months back, Kapil Sharma got himself embroiled in an unexpected controversy with regards to his tweet in which he had tagged the Prime Minister, no less. This time round, it’s filmmaker Shirish Kunder who has landed himself into trouble after he criticised Yogi Adityanath on Twitter, the newly elected Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.
Shirish Kunder, in his controversial tweet, which he deleted later, had slammed Yogi Adityanath by stating, "Hoping a goon will stop rioting once he's allowed to rule is like expecting a rapist to stop raping once he's allowed to rape." In the same breath, he posted yet another tweet, in which he stated, “Going by the logic of making a goon as CM so that he behaves, Dawood can be CBI director, and Mallya - RBI Governor.”
Following his tweets, an FIR has been filed against Shirish Kunder. The FIR has been registered in Hazratganj. Wasting no time, Shirish Kunder made a public apology through his handle.
I unconditionally apologise. I never meant to hurt anyones feelings or sentiment.

Know More About Metallica
Metallica is an American heavy metal band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1981.
The band was founded when James Hetfield responded to an advertisement that drummer Lars Ulrich had posted in a local newspaper. The current line-up features long-time lead guitarist Kirk Hammett (who joined the band in 1983) and bassist Robert Trujillo (a member since 2003) alongside Hetfield and Ulrich. Previous members of the band include former lead guitarist Dave Mustaine (who later went on to found the band Megadeth) and former bassistsRon McGovney, Cliff Burton and Jason Newsted. The band also had a long collaboration with producer Bob Rock, who produced all of the band’s albums from 1990 to 2003 and served as a temporary bassist between the departure of Newsted and the hiring of Trujillo.
