Family stays away from Harshvardhan Kapoor

Shoot for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Mirziya is currently under way and Harshvardhan Kapoor is busy shooting for the film.

He is in a grueling schedule in Rajsathan and the young actor has distanced himself and has more or less been by himself.

Inspite of the technologically advanced times,  Harshvardhan has been less communicative with his family and friends.

Even in terms of family neither his parents Anil and Sunita, nor his sisters Rhea and Sonam have dropped in on the sets to meet him.

Harshvardhan has been spending his time either by himself or training for the film.

Sushant Singh Rajput has learnt a lot about history in the last one year.

Sushant has been shooting for his upcoming film Detective Byomkesh Bakshy! in which the backdrop of the film is the Second World War.

Recently Sushant visited Kolkata for the poster launch where he visited the Old Eastern Hotel.

He learnt that during the World War the hotel was bombed by Japanese planes and was largely destroyed.

It was a brutal attack and Sushant was overheard discussing that the incident reminds him of the recent Taj terror attack.

Sushant actively spoke to Dibakar about the attack and dug for more details.

While the hotel has been restored, there yet are yet areas which are reminiscent of the war. Sushant took a walk around the hotel actively talking to Dibakar and the staff there who were filling him in with details.

Says Sushant “Though I have been to Kolkata several times before, this was the first time I visited the hotel. Exactly seventy years ago Japanese bombers dropped a bomb right here. The vibe and the history of the place brought back the shoot of Byomkesh Bakshy! for me – when I was right inside Calcutta 1943! It was like time travel where i had landed back to the future!”

Even on sets Sushant often used to indulge in long conversations with Dibakar on various facets of the war and the implications Kolkata  faced during that time. 

He has been defeacto learning history and has got more and more intrigued with the subject.

Style diva Malaika Arora Khan who is known to give us some chart buster songs is all set to sizzle the silver screen with her special number from ‘Dolly Ki Doli’.

What we hear is that Rajkummar Rao who will also be seen shaking a leg in the song was in awe of the actress.

A source close to the team said, ‘This special number comes during Rajkummar and Sonam’s wedding sequence. So Rajkummar is very happy and is supposed to let lose when he dances alongside Malaika. When Rajkummar came on sets he was quite awestruck by Malaika’s presence. Later in no time both of them got along with each other and in fact Malaika even showed him few steps and practiced with him to be in sync and get it correctly.’

Well, we are sure that learning dance from Malaika is definitely a dream come true for Rajkummar!!

Produced by Arbaaz Khan Production, the film is directed by Abhishek Dogra and is all set to release on 23rd January!!

Farhan is against the ‘No Smoking’ disclaimers in films


Farhan Akhtar strongly feels against running No Smoking disclaimers in the midst of a film.

He is keen to reach out to the concerned authorities about the No smoking disclaimers in films. The ace actor truly feels it takes away from the viewing experience and is more of a distraction than effective messaging.

Says Farhan, “Firstly, we all are in agreement that smoking is injurious to health but ask yourself, is running a disclaimer as a sub-title during a scene the solution to the problem? The answer is no.”

Farhan shares, “The only thing it successfully manages to do is take the viewer out of his or her film viewing experience. It is like putting the cinema hall lights on during a scene and expecting not to disturb the audience’s attention or cause any lapse in concentration to the story. Is that possible? The answer again is No.”

Farhan has been talking to his team and fellow filmmakers about the issue. He wants to take a concrete step and ensure a solution is worked out.

He further adds, “The film industry had willingly accepted and proudly supported the Anti-Smoking Public Awareness film by attaching it to the print and digital file, to be run before the start of the feature itself. But to have disclaimers in the film itself is stepping on the film makers toes and demanding a compromise of the creator’s integrity.”

Farhan feels running a disclaimer is more of a creative hindrance and takes away from the essence of the scene

He concludes by saying, “We have a rating system that decides viewer age limits for films and I’m sure that smoking can be dealt with through the certification system.”

L.K.Advani is all praises for PK

After Sachin Tendulkar expressed how he found PK to be Aamir Khan’s best film ever, there is another name who is endorsing Rajkumar Hirani’s recently released film.


L.K.Advani who recently watched the film has taken a huge liking to the film and feels that more and more people should watch it as it is not just entertaining but also a very important film.

L.K. Advani shared, “Hearty greetings to Rajkumar Hirani and Vidhu Vinod Chopra for a wonderful and courageous film that they have produced in the shape of PK.

We are fortunate to have been born in a vast and variegated country like India. This however casts on all patriots a duty to ensure that nothing weakens the unity of the country- neither caste nor community nor language nor region, and certainly not religion.

In fact I believe that religiosity is for our nation an inexhaustible source of spiritualism, and so of ethical conduct. Those who run down religion, any religion, are doing a great disservice to the country and to its unity.

It is this cardinal lesson that emerges clearly out of this recently released film PK which has excellent performances by the protagonist Aamir Khan, Anushka Sharma and Boman Irani.”

Is Ranveer Singh , Ridhima’s gym guru?


Ridhima Sud, who will be debuting with Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do, has been lucky to act with Ranveer Singh. The debutante says, “Ranveer and I would always see each other in the gym. whenever I’d  go for a run He’d be there! I was convinced he was living and functioning out of there but thank god he was, because he was nice enough to point out that my shoes are not the correct ones for running and that I could twist my ankle if I didn’t get new ones! I am more of a yoga person and hadn’t thought much about the shoes situation. He was also kind enough to show me some exercises with weights.”

She further adds, “Luckily my ankle is still intact and I now own some very appropriate running shoes!”

As the corrosion causes chaos during an opening event of a Museum of Natural History, the affected exhibits create mayhem and scare away the attendees.

Larry researches that the Ahkmenrah can be preserved back if he goes to the British Museum and confer with the parent Merenkahre [Ben Kingsley] of Ahkmenrah. By some means he convinces McPhee [Ricky Gervais] the curator of the Museum to get the permission of delivering some exhibits. As they reach British Museum host of new exhibits come to life and join them, eventually the adventure starts of restoring the Ahkmenrah as only the moonlight can stop the corrosion.

All the characters including late Robin Williams as Theodore Roosevelt, Attila the Hun, Sacagawea, Dexter the Capuchin Monkey, and Rexy the Tyrannosaurus skeleton and also Jedediah [Owen Wilson] and Octavius [Steve Coogan] from the earlier parts have been maintained a superb farewell bid to this unforgettable creatures given by Director Shawn Levy.

When the Common Man turns into Shahrukh Khan!


A funny take on Bollywood by Culture Machine and SnG Comedy

Whether it’s Simran running after a moving train to catch Raj’s hand or Chulbul Pandey taking on 20 goons at a time, our Bollywood films are full of such larger than life scenes. But what if we try to act in the similar way in reality? Imagine a pigeon carrying your love letter to your girlfriend or she doing a towel dance right in front of the window of her room! This video bySnG Comedy titled ‘Bollywood vs Reality’ will tell you what happens after that. The video which has been created by Culture Machine Digital Video Entertainment Company is a spoof of the ‘filmy’ scenes and how they backfire when tried out in real life. It is a hysterical   demonstration of how Bollywood clichés fall apart when smacked in the face by reality. The video features a group of artists who hilariously enact some of the iconic scenes from Bollywood and what follows is definitely going to leave you in splits.

Kali-Katha, a prologue to Anurag Kashyap’s film Ugly, releases online

Kali-Katha, that goes online today is a 5-minute prologue to Anurag Kashyap’s film Ugly. For the first time in the history of Indian cinema, a prologue of any film would be releasing.

Kali-Katha, specially crafted from the deleted scenes of the film Ugly, gives the audiences an emotional backdrop to the story and characters of Ugly, which is about the harrowing search for Kali-a young girl who is kidnapped under mysterious circumstances.

The short film shows the past relationship between Kali’s parents -Rahul who is a struggling actor and Shalini who is a housewife, though not by choice, and the disturbing conditions under which she was born.

Anurag Kashyap has always taken an unconventional and daring path when it comes to his films or their promotions. He feels that the viewers get a better understanding of the characters if they see Kali-Katha before they go and watch Ugly.

Says Anurag, “It’s a very dark prologue to the film that talks about the circumstances around the conception of Kali. It explores the uncomfortable truth below the surface of relationships, which we often ignore and refuse to accept“.

Ugly releases across Indian cinemas on Friday, 26th December 2014.

Awards and Randeep Hooda!

Randeep Hooda!

It has been a wonderful year for Randeep Hooda and accolades are certainly due to the actor. So it was hardly a surprise when the actor was approached to attend an award function which was supposed to felicitate the actor. The award function was to take place on December 18th,  the date was predictably marked to turn into a happy evening for the actor. Unfortunately, the evening of 18th had an unpleasant turn of events, leaving the actor feeling annoyed more than anything.

A source close to Randeep reveals that things didn’t go according to what was promised to the actor and everything went awry. “Randeep was asked to reach the awards function at 7.30 pm, so that he could receive the award and leave by 8.30 pm. He reached the venue on time, but till 8.30 pm there was no award announcement. In fact, he waited till 9 pm, before getting irked and leaving. Eventually, someone else had to collect the award on his behalf,” says the source.

When asked about the unfortunate incident Randeep, he admitted, “I got bored, so I left. I don’t know what happened later, but I couldn’t sit through it any longer. I’ve got the award now.”
