Sajid Nadiadwala comes on board for ‘Super 30’


In a first of its kind, Phantom Films and Reliance Entertainment — that are jointly making films — will partner with Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment for ‘Super 30’. Incidentally, this is also the first time in his career that filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala is collaborating with superstar Hrithik Roshan. The film has been in the news for its content and casting, and consequently has generated abundant anticipation with the industry’s leading content producers backing it. ‘Super 30’ traces the remarkable journey of a mathematics teacher Anand Kumar, who was recently awarded by the President of India for his extraordinary batch of 30 chosen students every year. Extremely happy to collaborate with the studio on this project, Sajid says, “It’s probably the most unique film subject of 2018. There have been lots of occasions in the past where Hrithik and I have come close to working, but ‘Super 30’ is easily the best start point of this association.” Shibasish Sarkar of the studio says, “At Reliance, we’re taking the collaborative route and that is paying dividends for us as a company. Our association with Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment brings immense amount of value and domain knowledge to the scheme of things.”

Anil Kapoor likely to reunite with Juhi Chawla after eleven years in Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s next


Anil Kapoor will reportedly reunite with yet another lead actress of his generation as Juhi Chawla is likely to be seen opposite him in a forthcoming family drama. Salaam-e-Ishq, which released in 2007, was the last movie when we saw him with a lead actress of his generation. Juhi Chawla was opposite him in that romantic drama which had six different love stories. Since then, he has worked with actresses like Mallika Sherawat, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Susmita Sen, Sameera Reddy and Ameesha Patel among others. Now, DNA reports that he is once again pairing up with Chawla in Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. The film will also reportedly star Sonam Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao in lead roles. Juhi and Anil will play the role of Sonam’s parents in the film while Rajkummar will be her love interest. It’s a season of reunions for Juhi Chawla also. After a cameo in Shah Rukh Khan’s Aanand L Rai film, the actress will be reuniting with her Deewana Mastana co-star Anil Kapoor after a hiatus of 11 years. It seems Anil Kapoor is moving back to the actresses he had worked in the 80s and 90s. The actor is currently busy shooting for Fanney Khan which stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as the female lead. He will also be seen with Madhuri Dixit in Total Dhamaal.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looks like she walked straight out of a fairy tale at event in Bangalore


Aishwarya Rai Bachchan may be running on a hectic work schedule but that has not deterred her flawless sense of style. The actress, who is shooting for her next film ‘Fanney Khan’, was spotted heading to Bangalore for an event. Dressed in a stunning blue and black ensemble, Aishwarya looked like she walked straight out of a fairy tale and into the venue. Wearing her hair in subtle waves and a beautiful off shoulder blouse with a royal blue skirt, Aishwarya looked like a dream as she interacted with the paparazzi and fans at the event. If reports are to be believed, then Prerna Arora, producer of the Aishwarya Rai Bachchan-starrer ‘Fanney Khan’, said that the actor is not bothered about the impending box-office clash with Salman Khan’s ‘Race 3’ on June 15 next year.

Kangana Ranaut on her waning commercial viability: ‘Don’t write me off just yet’


After a year of controversies where she raised her voice against some of Bollywood’s big names and delivered two back-to-back box office failures, Kangana Ranaut has finally confessed that all of these things have somehow affected her earnings. In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, she admitted her ‘commercial viability’ has taken a blow. Kangana last appeared in Hansal Mehta’s Simran, which did not do well at the box office and was also panned by some critics. The previous film, Rangoon, starring Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan, also failed to receive good response at the box office and received mixed reviews. Kangana’s performance in both the films was appreciated but the movies, as a whole, failed to satisfy the audiences. “The offers haven’t slowed but my commercial viability has been affected. The endorsements are fewer, my earnings are down and my plan to open my own production house has had to be pushed,” she revealed during the interview. In a series of straightforward interviews earlier this year, Kangana yet again highlighted the issues of harassment and nepotism the industry still suffers from, involving some big names like Hrithik Roshan and Karan Johar in her explosive allegations. Despite all this, Kangana insisted in the interview that it is not the time to write her off yet. “But I have signed three films, have a beautiful house in Manali now and an office on Pali Hill and I’m going to Harvard so don’t write me off just yet.” As always Kangana has a positive note, “I don’t want my life to become a cautionary tale but an inspiration for young girls and for that, I will survive and succeed.” Kangana is right now gearing up for her talk at Harvard Business School which is scheduled for February 2018 and is quite confident to paint a positive image of her country during the talk, “I will talk about new opportunities in the entertainment business that TV, digital platforms and streaming sites have brought in which I want to experiment with too. I want to point to films like Hindi Medium which merged the lives of disparate social hierarchies in a realistic rather than aspirational portrayal of society.” On the working front, the Queen star has reportedly requested some time off from her shooting for upcoming movie Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi to prepare for the Harvard talk.

Jacqueline Fernandez: Competition doesn’t make me nervous


She is not scared of the cut-throat competition in Bollywood, but actor Jacqueline Fernandez said she keeps analysing trends in the film industry. The actor said she continuously questions her career decisions as it helps her in carving her own niche in movies. “The competition doesn’t get on my nerves but there are days when I contemplate them. It’s important to gauge, understand and ask questions. Working in the industry gives me extreme joy and purpose. At the same time, you want to be at the top of your game,” Jacqueline told . “There are days when I am like, ‘ok this is the competition I am facing now, what could I be doing, how to rise above this, what’s working now that others are doing.’ You need to continuously keep asking yourself questions so that you are always on top of your game,” she added. The 32-year-old actor said she wants to explore other arenas beyond acting. “Acting is more like a passion for me. I love it but it doesn’t mean it defines me as a person. As a person, there are so many things I need to explore. I love branching out to do things which gives me immense happiness,” she said. “For a woman to support something like this is a little out of the box. What caught my attention was they do have women fighters. I thought this is something that needs to be encouraged. I felt this is something I want to promote,” she said.

Priyanka Chopra


Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra’s fans in Uttar Pradesh’s Bareilly were left heartbroken as she failed to attend a university’s convocation ceremony. The actor, who was invited to be honoured with a doctorate degree at Bareilly International University’s first ever convocation ceremony, could not reach her hometown due to bad weather. According to sources, her flight could not take-off from Delhi because of bad weather in the capital. After a long wait, the chief guest and Union Minister Dr Harsh vardhan gave away medals and certificates to the students. Priyanka, however, tweeted a video from the airport apologising for her absence and wishing students luck for their future. In the heartwarming video, she also remembered her ‘sweet and sour’ memories with the city where she lived in her childhood. She promised she would visit the historic city very soon.
