Himesh Reshammiya is back with ‘Teraa Surror’ in a chiseled avataar

Some actors are so adamant in doing what they love that they are least bothered about what critics and audience will think or say. Himesh Reshammiya is one such actor, who, despite knowing that he cannot act, never gives up acting. We doubt whether any of his fans could count and name the movies he has acted in since his debut with ‘Aap Ka Suroor’ in 2007. Surprisingly, that film was a hit, and perhaps that might have fueled his daring to take more acting ventures.

However, in pursuit of acting, he is running far away from the profession that he is good at – music direction. Such a talented music director he is, that the record of delivering 26 continuous hit songs is in his name. No other musicians are able to break it so far. If he could only stick with what he is best at, Bollywood would have more melodious and peppy numbers.

Now when we all have thought that he had vanished, Himesh surprised us all by releasing a first poster of his upcoming film ‘Teraa Suroor,’ The film is touted as a suspense thriller and a sequel to “Aap Ka Suroor’. Himesh has managed to roped in known actors like Naseeruddin Shah, Kabir Bedi, Monica Dogra, and Shekar Kapur. His leading lady is debutante Farah Karimi.

It is not confirmed whether he has improved his acting skills or not, but the poster shows that he is rather more interested in toning up his muscles. You can see his firm and toned shoulders in it. His six-pack abs is not visible though.

We wish somebody can tell Himesh that building an athletic body does not yield success in Bollywood. One has to work on developing acting skills.

Deepika wants Ranveer to rein in his enthusiasm over a PDA

No actor in Bollywood can match up to the energy Ranveer Singh stocks in his sleeves. He is a live wire ever ready to explode and cares little about the opinions of others. His zeal and energy double up when he is with Deepika Padukone. He simply doesn’t miss any chance to show his affection for the leggy star. While for others, his intensity is a treat to watch and take pleasure from, Deepika wants him to keep control over his exuberance.

There are many occasions where the actor is seen demonstrating his affection for the actress in public. Control or self-restrain seems to have no place in his dictionary when he is with his lady love. We got to see another demonstration of his excitement for Deepika during the Star Screen Award. Not only her, but Ranveer is also in awe of her parents. And he showed it openly by touching her parent’s feet. Even during performing live on the stage, Ranveer was throwing constant affectionate looks towards Deepika. If you have seen the award function on the TV, you will remember the actor dancing in front of the VIP row occupied by the Mr. Bachhan, Akshay Kumar, Nita Ambani, and Deepika before taking the stage. He was so lost in performing before his love, that Deepika had to gesture him to go to the stage.

It is not that the actress does not like his display of affection for her in public, but somewhere she wants him to control the intensity and concentrate on what he is doing. She just prefers to keep a low profile about their relationship.

Well, post the award function and being deeply and madly in love, the reel-life Bajirao Peshwa has taken Mastani’s suggestion to his heart and has changed dramatically by not getting carried away in her presence. So next time you miss the actor’s excitement, don’t think something wrong is going on in between them.

Some celebrities cannot stay away from controversy for a long time. Either controversy finds them, or they court it. This time Poonam Pandey is caught in the contentious act for no fault of her. The model-turned actress who featured in ‘Nasha’ is trolling on social media because of news about her abortion. According to the report, the actress has allegedly aborted her unborn child at the Hinduja Hospital of Mumbai on Tuesday.

The news, which was published by a popular website, had Poonam Pandey frothing red and blue on them. As she is known to face any disagreement with bold and mature attitude, this particular news about her abortion has hurt her deeply inside out. What made her rake her mind is the audacity of the reporter of publishing such news without even bothering to find out if it is true or not.

Poonam got the news when she was busy in shooting. Learning about the blatant lie disturbed her badly. She was restless and furious over the report, and she immediately asked her manager to find out the truth. Having lost all the patience about the baseless rumour, she lost no time in contacting the reporter and asked her politely about what made her to write such a report without any proof and investigation. Her anger surged to another level when the reporter said that she had no proof, but came to know that about it from somewhere.

Though Poonam Pandey and controversies are known neighbours, she is in no mood to take the irresponsible and malicious act of the website lightly. Apart from taking to Twitter to lash out the report and clearing the rumour, she also filed a whooping 100 crore defamation case against the website publishing the news. She said, this is for the first time she is hurt so badly and wanted to make the media think 100 times before defaming any celebrity.

Her twitter post:

— Poonam Pandey (January 20, 2016)

Good morning, Here is my legal team taking action against this FAKE

— Poonam Pandey (January 20, 2016)

outraging my modesty, how can one be so irresponsible common guys can’t u double check before filing any crap hitting one below the belt

She also requested the media not to publish any news blindly before cross-checking and collecting facts.

It was one of the perfect couples of Bollywood that was loved and admired by fans and peers alike. But as love and friendship in the tinsel town is ephemeral, it really hurts seeing another affinity and bounding hitting the rock. Yes! Get ready to get a shock as you read Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif’s break up.

Both the eligible bachelors of Bollywood have been in a relationship since 2009 when they paired together for ‘Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahaani.’ Though they didn’t acknowledge it publicly, their feelings for each other said it all. They even started living together from the past one year in a penthouse at a posh locality of Carter Road. Everything seemed fine between them. Just a few days ago, a photo in which both are seen kissing on their balcony was circulated on the internet, which was a proof enough that the two are deeply in love. Moreover, Katrina even attended the Christmas Lunch with the Kapoor family at Shashi Kapoor’s residence. The bonding with Ranbir’s family was a clear picture to make assumptions about the impending marriage.

However, things turned out sour and the two decided to go their ways separately. While what prompted them to take the decision to break up is not clear, there were rumours about Katrina being annoyed over her beau’s close proximity with her ex-girlfriend. She couldn’t see Ranbir and Deepika getting closer during the promotion of ‘Tamasha.’  When a reported asked her about the feelings she is going through learning Ranbir and Deepika working together, she replied, “I can’t enforce my will on the people in my life. Their choices are their own. I may not be happy with them, but I hope that as they mature, their choices will change.”

There are reports that Ranbir has moved out of the apartment and shifted back to his parents with his baggage. Even Katrina is not allowing the break-up to take its toll on her and is getting busy with the promotion of her upcoming film ‘Fitoor.’

Akshya Kumar and Nimrat Kaur are busy promoting their film ‘Airlift’ scheduled to hit the theatres on January 22. As the film was doubted to be a war film, Akshay was happy to clear all the doubts during the promotional rounds . He said that ‘Airlift’ is neither a war film nor about nation-bashing. Throwing more lights on the film’s content, he added that it is a portrayal of the heroic act of one Indian who alone in coordination with the Indian government rescued 1,70,000 Indians from the war zone.

Akshay is playing the role of one Mr. Ranjeet Katyal, the Indian-origin businessman of Kuwait. Ranjeet Katyal (not real name) was the person who made the rescue of thousands of Indians from the war-hit areas possible during the Gulf War. When Akshay came to know about his deeds through a script, he immediately got connected to it and decided to show it to the world.

When the film was in the making, there were many instances that got Akshay emotional. He even choked once as he actually felt the pain endured by the Indian refugees. The emotion, patriotism, and sacrifice seen during the war time were incredible. It was also the thought of several billionaires turning into beggars overnight during the Gulf war made the actor shudder.

The actor also added that the real life hero who was the mastermind behind the evacuation of Indians from the war zone is not known to all and hopes that he will get recognition from the film. He also mentioned special words for Indian pilots who dared to war zone and rescue our people.

Akshay is confident that any person who cares for his or her country and the people will experience the same emotional feelings he went through.

However, all their speculations proved wrong when Suzanne was not sighted at the party.

When a leading online portal asked her the reason for not attending the birthday party, she replied, I understand him not inviting me. We don’t invite each other to our birthdays. People love to make a big deal out of nothing.” She clarifies there is absolutely no ill-will between the separated couple. “By the grace of God we have found peace with our choices and with each other. I will always wish for him to be the happiest in all that he does. And I know he wishes the same for me.”

Ever since the biopic ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ on the legendary athlete of India Milkha Singh found heaps of praises from all quarters and saw cash ringing at the box office, a tradition of a sort has started in Bollywood – transforming noted sports-person’s life onto the silver screen. There have been many biopics in the making since then. Some projects are under production while talks on others are going on with the respective athletes. The fresh in the latter type of venture is the biopic on Arunima Sinha.

Arunima is the first woman in the world who has scaled Mt. Everest with prosthetic legs. Her life-story is worth capturing and showing the world through the medium of cinema as it is both inspiring and thought-provoking.

Arunima Sinha was a national volleyball and football player. But an incident in 2011 changed her life entirely. She was thrown out of a running train while trying to foil an attempt of looting train passengers by robbers. That incident made her lose both her legs. But she only grew stronger in determination and went on to scale Mt. Everest on May 21, 2013 with artificial legs. Being hungry for achievements, she didn’t stop there and climbed top five highest summits of the world where only mountaineers with sheer courage dare.

It was her achievements that made people realize how extraordinary a person she is. Even the film industry couldn’t kept itself aloof of her story and decided to make a movie on it. Producer Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar met her in 2015. But the fee they offered for her story was just 50 lakh.

Arunima has asked them 5 Cr. and royalty for her story as she wants to fulfill her dream of opening a sports academy for the physically challenged. According to her, she had demanded a reasonable amount which will help her pursue her dream. Moreover, a movie about someone’s life is made only once and not again and gain. So, her demand is fair and justified.

While she is hoping for her demand to be fulfilled, many noted film actors and producers are trying to persuade her to accept what the filmmaker is paying her.
