When Bollywood celebrated its 100 years in business, the Kapoor family had completed its eight decades. Right from the paternal head to the Y generation, this clan has greatly contributed to Hindi cinema. Its also gave us the first showman of India in Raj Kapoor.

Raj Saab was a legendary director with keen knowledge on film making. He enjoyed an illustrious career both in acting and film direction. Owing to his great contribution to Hindi Cinema, the Indian Government honored him with Padma Bhushan and Dadasaheb Phalke Award. Thanks to his children that we can soon see the illustrious life of this legendary filmmaker on the screen.

The siblings Randhir Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor had been contemplating a biopic on their legendary father’s life for quite some time. But they couldn’t find a suitable character who could comfortably get into the mold of their father. Eventually, they found the actor in Ranbir Kapoor, who is playing Sanjay Dutt in a biopic on his life. Both the brothers feel that Ranbir is the perfect person to play Raj Saab.

The biopic is a dream project of the Kapoor brothers and will be made under the banner of RK Films. It is also an attempt to to revive RK Films with this film.

This is how the Twitterati reacted on Salman Khan’s acquittal in chinkara poaching cases

salman khan

The Rajasthan High Court acquitted Salman Khan in chinkara poaching cases on Monday, July 25. The superstar was given the “the benefit of doubt” as there was no evidence to prove that the pellets were fired from his gun. The black buck killing and poaching incident that happened in 1998 finally came to rest after 18 long years.

The verdict was pronounced by Justice Nirmaljeet Kaur. It came as a sigh of relief for Salman Khan because if it had gone against him, an arrest warrant would have been issued and he could have landed in jail.

As soon as the final verdict was announced, the Twitterati expressed their unhappy feelings in interesting ways. Read and think if you too have the same opinion as them.

Salman Khan acquitted in poaching case after 18 years.
Probably because all the victim’s friends and relatives have already died of old age.

Reason 3.
There wasnt any “Deer” but a mirage, pradhan sevak explained the nation “Thand hai nahi lagti hai, deer nahi tha lag raha tha”

Kanika @nskathy
Reason 4.
Deer was attacking our army in Kashmir by pelting stones, our nationalist #SalmanKhan shot the anti-national

Whether it is justice to the actor or the poor animal that was killed and eaten is hard to comprehend.

Here is how Ranveer Singh reacted over Salman’s comment on breaking a chair over his head

ranveer_salman

Remember Salman Khan’s reaction over Ranveer Singh’s antics during the filming of “Sultan” in a Paris theatre? A video that went viral showed the Bajirao-Mastani star breaking into a high-voltage dance performance in front of the screen during the screening of Sultan in a Paris theatre. We all know Ranveer is a live bomb and can explode anyplace and anytime. And we love to see him like that. But he seldom realized that his act will not go down well with the stars of Sultan.

Such was the act that it compelled Salman Khan to utter breaking a chair over his head. Even his co-star of “Band Baaja Baaraat” Anushka Sharma didn’t like and said she wanted to tell him to sit out and let the audience watch their film.

Yesterday, when Ranveer was spotted at the special screening of Madaari, he was asked to comment on the reaction of Anushka and Salman over his antics. Very humbly and diplomatically, he replied, “Today we have come here for the screening of Madaari, so it would be better if we don’t talk about any other film.”

Well, it seems Ranveer is least affected by the reaction of his peers and will continue with is antics much to the delight of others.

Urvashi Rautela broke down in press conference addressing piracy issue of “Great Grand Masti”

Piracy has craned its neck again after a long hiatus and is destroying the business of Bollywood. We have hardly overcome the news of the censored copy of “Udta Punjab” been leaked, we received another shock by knowing “Great Grand Masti” has met with the same fate. To our dismay, the movie was leaked 17 days before the release. The filmmakers tried their best to fight it and released the movie one week before its scheduled date. But unfortunately, that didn’t work in their favour as the film received a lukewarm response and collected a meager 5 crore during the weekend.

To address the piracy issue, the filmmakers held a press conference in Mumbai on 16th July. The crew and cast expressed their grief. They were shattered and dejected as the film’s business received a huge blow and the loss amounted to over 100 crore. Director Indra Kumar said, “Piracy has hit us right on the head and the heart. We have suffered heavy mental and financial loss.” He also sought government’s intervention to curb piracy.

As the lead actors expressed their views and dejection, Urvashi Rautela broke down when her turn to address the media came. She said, “”I am a 22 year old young girl, who’s trying to find a footing in the industry. When Udta Punjab was leaked online, I felt bad for the team. But never did I think that the same will happen to my film as well.”

“There were people messaging me on social media saying they liked my performance because they had watched the film before its released in theatres. I didn’t know whether to smile or cry.”

She was constantly wiping her tears and answering the question of the media.

Salman Khan wants to break a chair on Ranveer Singh’s head!

salmanranveer

Ranveer Singh doesn’t need any reason get into antics. He is like a battery that is always charged and plugged in. His over-enthusiasm and caper have won many hearts. But this time, his act has annoyed the “Sultan” of Bollywood. Yes! Salman Khan is miffed by Ranveer’s recent indulgence and is very upset with him.

Ranveer’s little stunt occurred during the screening of “Sultan” in a single-screen theatre in Paris. He was watching the film and couldn’t control himself when the song ‘Baby Ko Bass Pasand Hai’ broke on the screen. He literally got up and started to dance in front of the screen much surprise and delight of the audience in the auditorium. His live-wire act was so loved by the audience that it was captured and uploaded on social media. The video soon went viral and came to the notice of Salman Khan.

The young actor also captioned his antics in the video on Twitter as this “Check out @AnushkaSharma in the back like “buss Kar yaar!” #Sultan twitter.com/team_ranveers..

When asked if he had seen the video in a press meet in Mumbai held to celebrate the success of Sultan, Salman said, I saw that and I am going to break a chair or something on his head. Watch a film… don’t start dancing and disturb the film.” “I was like ‘what is this’. I said he is not watching ‘Sultan‘, he is making people watch him there. We should have charged money for that.”

Hopefully, after Salman’s response to his antics, Ranveer Singh will surely think twice before getting into any sort of stunt in public. Meanwhile, watch the video here and enjoy it.

OMG! This novelist claims Ranveer Singh as her husband

Nikita Singh

Ranveer Singh is ruling millions of hearts with his spontaneity. His fever among girls has grown to a meteoric rise after the stupendous success of ‘Bajirao Mastani.’ Girls all over the globe are ready to do anything for just a ‘snap’ with this hunk. Such is his mojo that every young girl wishes to be his bride. When the charming actor announced his love for Deepika Padukone, millions of female started envying the actress and couldn’t mend their broken hearts. So far, the relationship between the two lovebirds is a cuddly affair. But it seems very soon their is going to be turbulence in their relationship.

A novelist named Nikita Singh has dropped a bomb in an interview that has shocked the Bollywood as well as fans. In her interview to The Telegraph, the female admitted her crush on the Indian Cricketer Hardik Pandya, who is already married. She also revealed that she didn’t care because her husband is Ranveer Singh – the love of her life.

Shockingly, when asked if she is talking about the actor Ranveer Singh, she laughed and said, “Yes! (Giggles) One of my friends knows him and he asked me, ‘You do know that he’s very happy in his relationship, right?’ And I was like, ‘But in my heart, he’s my husband, and I am very happy that way, you understand? Why would you take that away from me?’”

The female author who has churned out many best selling-novels across the world is quite charming. If not for Deepika Padukone, we certainly would have loved to see both as husband and wife. But sadly, she has to satisfy herself by marrying Ranveer Singh in her mind and heart, like millions of other girls.

How Ranveer and Deepika are going to react to this viral news is to be seen.

Screenshot-2

Mika Singh is a prolific singer who delivers hit songs one after another. He is always hogging the limelight both for better and wrong reasons. While his ruling the music chart is good for the industry and fans, churning out controversies is definitely not good as he is putting his career at stake. However, he is the one who cannot stay far away from controversies. Either he follows them, or the controversy finds him. Like the hit songs, there are quite a number of infamous incidences attached to his career which just keeps growing. Hardly the dust of his previous eccentric indulgences has settled, he invited another one. This time, a molestation charge has been lodged against him by a fashion designer on Tuesday, 4th June.

According to an entertainment portal, the 32-year-old designer visited Mika at his apartment regarding some payment issues. The discussion went wrong, and the argument heated up to such an extent that it sparked the alleged incident. The designer was physically assaulted by Mika. Making a fast and hurried exit from the apartment, the lady rushed to the Versova police station and lodged a complaint of sexual assault and molestation against the singer. A case was registered by the police against Mika under section 323 (willingly causing hurt), 504 (voluntarily insulting and breaching of the peace), and 354 (assaulting a woman) of Indian Penal Code.

Mika has denied the charges and has even filed a counter-complaint against the lady accusing her of framing him with an intention of extorting money from him. He told the police that the woman had asked for 5 crore and threatened to ruin his career if the money is not paid.

Ever since the news of Priyanka Chopra debuting in a Hollywood movie opposite Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a. “The Rock,” surfaced, we were all eager to see the first looks. Unfortunately, the first looks didn’t feature our lovely PC. But this time, the actress has taken to heart the dejection felt by her fans and unveiled a new poster herself on her Twitter handler.

The poster is quite refreshing and is a reminiscent of the TV serial of the 1990s on which the movie is based. PC is seen along with the main leads of the movie, including Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Kelly Rohrbach, Jon Bass, and Alexandra Daddario. Confident and proud of her Indian culture, she preferred to appear in the poster clad in a white dress and sunglasses rather than a bikini like her co-stars. She even captained the poster in this way, “Ain’t no party like a beach party! #HappyFourthOfJuly #Baywatch #GangsAllHere.”

The intention of the makers of releasing the poster on 4th of July was to encash on the patriotic spirit of the Independence Day.

The movie is directed by Seth Gordon is expected to release in theaters by next year.
