Fans online refer Vidyut Jammwal as  the desi version of  Nikolaj Coster (well known as Jamie Lannister from GOT) 


With season 8 being the show finale, the entire world engulfed in the Game of Thrones mania. The recently aired episode had one of our favorite characters Jaime Lannister in the opening sequence being tried in the North. While dancing around the internet for post episode reactions and shared fandom, we chanced upon this image on a fanpage and our jaw dropped straight down to the floor!
If the Danish bred the gorgeous looking Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, India is definitely not behind at all for she has birthed some gorgeous men – one of whom is none other than this generation’s favorite action hero – Vidyut Jammwal
Seeing these images, one has to agree with the fans who refer to Nickolaj and Vidyut as brothers from other mothers. With their strikingly sharp features, chiseled jawlines, bodies to die for and ofcourse the ability to make every woman go weak in the knees, the resemblance is uncanny! It doesn’t end there. Both are also known to be extremely affable despite being very private about their off screen lives. They’ve both followed fairly unique paths to building their individual brands and have successfully carved a niche for themselves – one that is theirs and theirs alone.
So, if GoT was to be made with an all Indian cast, would you think that there could be anyone other than the uber sexy and super talented Mr Jammwal essaying the desi version of Jaime Lannister? Rhetorical question right…
While we know that Vidyut has Power (directed by Mahesh Manjrekar), Commando 3 (directed by Aditya Dutt) and Khuda Hafiz (directed by Faruk Kabir) lined up between 2019 and 2020, we not-so-secretly wish to see the hunk in some good’ol fashioned battle armour aka Jaime Lannister style!

FIRST LOOK : शूजीत सरकार की फिल्म सरदार उधम सिंह में विक्की कौशल का धमाकेदार लुक देखिए


इस अप्रैल में भारत के इतिहास में घटी जालियांवाला बाग हत्याकांड की दुखद घटना के 100 वर्ष पूरे होने पर फिल्ममेकर शूजीत सरकार ने भारत के सर्वश्रेष्ठ बहादुर स्वतंत्रता सेनानियों में से एक सरदार उधम सिंह की बायोपिक का पहला लुक लॉन्च किया है.

शूजीत सरकार हमेशा से ही अलग तरह की कहानियों को पर्दे पर दर्शाने के लिए जाने जाते हैं और अपनी उसी विरासत को आगे बढ़ाते हुए इस बार सरदार उधम सिंह की कहानी को दिखाने वाले हैं, जो कि भारत के ऐसे महान शहीद और स्वतंत्रता सेनानी थे जिन्होंने साल 1940 में लंदन जाकर माइकल ओ डायर( पंजाब का पूर्व लेफ्टिनेंट गवर्नर) की हत्या की थी.

इस जनरेशन के गेम चेंजर और नेक्स्ट जेन लीडर विक्की कौशल इस फिल्म में सरदार उधम सिंह के किरदार में नजर आने वाले हैं. इस साल फिल्म की शूटिंग बहुत बड़े पैमाने पर विश्व के अलग-अलग देशों में की जाएगी. हाल फिलहाल फिल्म का पहला शेड्यूल यूरोप में फिल्माया जा रहा है और यह फिल्म साल 2020 में रिलीज की जाएगी.

इस तरह के अनोखे विषय पर आधारित फिल्म का निर्माण करते हुए शूजीत सरकार का कहना है-‘ मैंने इस विषय पर फिल्म बनाने के बारे में इसलिए सोचा क्योंकि भारत के स्वतंत्रता संग्राम में इस क्रांतिकारी कहानी का बहुत बड़ा योगदान है जिसके बारे में कई पीढ़ियों को कुछ भी जानकारी नहीं है. उधम सिंह के संघर्ष और बलिदान की कहानी ,आज की जनरेशन को बताना बहुत महत्वपूर्ण है. इतने बड़े और बहादुर स्वतंत्रता सेनानी की कहानी को दर्शाने के लिए एक बार फिर से मैंने अपने लेखकों रितेश शाह और शुभेंदु भट्टाचार्य तथा अपने मित्र और प्रोड्यूसर रॉनी लाहिरी के साथ मिलकर काम शुरू किया है. इस जनरेशन में विक्की कौशल बेशक एक सबसे प्रतिभाशाली एक्टर है, और हम सब एक साथ मिलकर इतने बड़े स्वतंत्रता सेनानी की प्रभावशाली कहानी को न्याय दे पाने में सफल हो सकेंगे.

शूजीत सरकार की फिल्म सरदार उधम सिंह, राइजिंग सन फिल्म्स के बैनर तले बनाई जा रही है जिसके प्रोड्यूसर रॉनी लाहिरी और शील कुमार हैं.

Robert Downey Jr. aka Iron Man is the only Avenger to read the entire script of Avengers: Endgame!


As we all know, the Russo brothers went to all lengths to keep the script of the upcoming superhero movie, Avengers: Endgame a secret from all the members of team Avengers.

However there was only one person to read the entire script of the film and that is none other than Iron Man aka Robert Downey Jr.

But, in a new interview, the Russo brothers revealed that Tom wasn’t the only one who didn’t end up reading the entire Endgame script. In fact, all of the Avengers but one were left in the dark!

Everyone is loving the look of my character.We wanted Manju to appear like a woman who is strong, independent and single-handedly takes care of her children. My team and I wanted to have a very distinct approach, right from the look, to her behaviour, to the way she dresses and talks to people. We have given importance to all the minutest of nuances. Since we shot the film in Manali, we had a chance to play with a lot of colours for my attire and Aki Narula (stylist) ended up giving me the perfect combination of clothes that looked great on me. Hiral (hairstylist) worked on an entirely new look for me and she has done a wonderful job with that, it compliments my character perfectly.”

Kalank’s art director Amrita Mahal Nakai about what went into the making of the period drama’s grand sets


The promos of Abhishek Varman’s upcoming magnum opus, Kalank — set in the pre-Independence era — has already created a buzz. Now, the grandeur of the film’s set is also becoming one of the talking points. Art director Amrita Mahal Nakai, the woman behind the design of the majestic set talks about designing the set.

Amrita credits director Abhishek Varman for giving specific instruction. She says, “We followed Abhishek’s vision and also, the script left no margin for error. We started working on the design around the end of 2016.”

The set showcases Hira Mandi — the famous market of Lahore — in all its glory. Amrita shares, “Our set of Hira Mandi is a rather fantastical version of Lahore in the 1940s, though we have retained the essence of the city as it was back then.

Talking about the colour palette used, she says, “We have shown restraint in the use of colours, so that it doesn’t look jarring. We have taken our liberties, but well within the canvas of the film. Red colour has been used extensively in Kalank. It’s a strong colour and is pretty much there in every frame of the film. We used various shades of it. Hira Mandi is the most vibrant of all the sets, so we used colours depicting the same.”

On the challenges she adds, “To make Abhishek’s vision real was a challenge. In today’s day and age, people are hardly putting up grand sets. They rely more on VFX to make sets look grand, but we built a set to give it a more real look. Of course, the makers will be using visual effects to enhance scenes, but we have kept it as real as possible. This would probably be the largest set I have ever designed.”

Kalank stars Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur and Sanjay Dutt.

Fox Star Studios presents Kalank, A Dharma Productions & Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment film, directed by Abhishek Varman, to release on 17th April 2019. Produced by Karan Johar, Sajid Nadiadwala, Hiroo Yash Johar & Apoorva Mehta. Co-Produced by Fox Star Studios.
