Character driven films never scared me.

Ajay Devgn made unconventional choices with ‘Zakhm’ and ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ in the ‘90s and looking back, the actor feels proud of his early films as he believes what he did in the beginning of his career has become a trend now. The 48-year-old actor, who started as an action-romantic hero with 1991 film ‘Phool Aur Kaante’, said he always tried to strike a balance and never considered off-beat roles a risk. “I started playing characters in ‘90s and people have started doing it now. It makes me really happy. I came from a cinema family and I always wanted to make good films. When I was choosing films like ‘Zakhm’, it did not scare me. I never had in mind that these films would not work,” Devgn told. The two-time National Award-winning actor - he won for ‘Zakhm’ and ‘The Legend of Bhagat Singh’ believes it has become easier for a mainstream star to experiment now. “The fact that the audience has evolved gives us a lot of leverage. Earlier there were times when we had a subject, but couldn’t make because the audience didn’t like it. Now due to the exposure, people have started liking different subjects. Audience knows what is happening across the globe and it widens our horizon as well.” It has been 27 years, but Devgn is still one of the most bankable stars in the industry and the actor says the secret of staying relevant lies in changing with times. “As a performer one needs to be open, honest and change or adapt with times. If somebody is thinking that what they are doing is right then it doesn’t work. You have to upgrade yourself to stay relevant. It is not difficult,” he said. “I consider myself as a product and the other actor also a product. We have two different target audience and genres. I am where I am and I am going to remain there. There will be a point when I will have to wean off. That happens with everybody in life. It is natural. So I just be happy and work for myself,” he adds. The actor, whose latest release ‘Raid’ has opened to good reviews, will soon start the work on his next home production starring wife Kajol. The slice-of-life movie will be directed by Pradeep Sarkar. Devgn said he is also planning to return to the director’s chair next year.

Kangana Ranaut on CDR scam: Investigate before making assumptions


img

Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut on Wednesday reacted to her name being brought up in the Thane Call Detail Record (CDR) case, saying proper investigation must be done before drawing assumptions. According to reports, Kangana’s name has cropped up in the Call Detail Records scam. The actress is said to have messaged actor Hrithik Roshan’s number to lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui, and it is being investigated whether the lawyer had sourced Hrithik’s CDR as well. In response to this, Kangana said in a statement, “When we respond to a notice, we give all details to lawyer. To assume that these details were used to violate law and make statements based on that assumption and defame an artiste is super lame on Abhishek Trimukhe’s part.” “Proper investigation should be carried out before making assumptions.” Rizwan Siddiqui was last week arrested for investigations regarding his other celebrity client, actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui who came under the lens of the Thane police for allegedly spying on his wife.

We hear that Alia, who essays the role of Ranbir’s onscreen lover in this superhero flick, has injured her right shoulder and arm while filming a stunt sequence in Bulgaria. Reports say that the ‘Raazi’ actress’s right arm is bandaged and held up in a sling and she has been advised bed rest. The actress will be out of action for a few weeks as she is in a lot of pain. The film that also stars megastar Amitabh Bachchan, is slated to release in 2019. ‘Brahmastra’: Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Ayan Mukerji seal the first schedule with an endearing picture And it’s a wrap on the first schedule of ‘Brahmastra’ in Sofia, Bulgaria!

Sanjay Dutt set for new multi-starrer comedy


img

Veteran actor Sanjay Dutt has signed up to feature in a multi-starrer comedy entertainer ‘Blockbuster’. He said he loves the comedy space. “I have always loved doing comedy. It is the genre that makes me feel at home. The scale of ‘Blockbuster’ is huge and multi-starters always connect well with audiences,” Sanjay said in a statement. The ‘Munna Bhai’ series star will be directed by Ajay Arora and Lovely Arora for the film, to be produced by Sandeep Singh. Singh said it was his ‘dream’ to make a comedy to Sanjay, whom he lovingly calls Baba. “There are few people who can make you laugh like he does. It’s not just his timing that is perfect, it’s the expressions he gives that are hilarious. It’s Wonderful to be working with Ajay and Lovely who bring years of experience and creativity to Bollywood,” he said. The director duo said it’s a huge opportunity for them. “All the directors from Rajkumar Hirani to David Dhawan who have debuted with Sanjay have had fabulous success. We are very excited and even more so because it’s Sanjay that we would be directing for our debut.” ‘Blockbuster’ will be shot almost entirely in Mauritius, and will go on floors in April. It is written by Sajid Farhad, who has earlier worked on ‘Golmaal’, ‘Housefull 2’ and ‘Dhamaal Returns’.

Rajkummar Rao: For me, acting is not about ego


img

Actor Rajkummar Rao said for him, the process of acting is extremely pure and he never lets ego come in the way. Rao has been paired with Kangana Ranaut for a quirky thriller, ‘Mental Hai Kya’. The film reunites the two actors after ‘Queen’. Post ‘Queen’, things changed for Ranaut and today Rao is known for his popularity in both critically and commercially acclaimed films. Asked if there would be ego clashes as both Ranaut and him have become big stars, Rao said, “No. Trust me, for me acting is not about ego. It is something very pure, it’s about dealing with pure emotions.” “(So), how can you put your ego in that?” he said. The movie will be directed by National Award-winner Prakash Kovelamudi and produced by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures and Shaailesh R Singh’s Karma Media. “We haven’t started shooting yet. But I really like Kangana. We have done a film together, ‘Queen’, which is a cult. So, I am obviously looking forward to get to the sets now,” Rao said on the new film. The actor is currently shooting with Shraddha Kapoor for horror comedy, ‘Stree’. “We are getting into the last schedule now. It is shaping up pretty well. I am really excited for the release. It is going very good. Shraddha is a very hardworking and dedicated actor,” he said. Written by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, ‘Stree’ is directed by Amar Kaushik and produced by Dinesh Vijan through his company Maddock Films.

Kriti Sanon to Akshay Kumar romance in Sajid Khan's Housefull 4?


img

Filmmaker Sajid Khan and actor Akshay Kumar are coming together for Housefull 4 this year. The fourth instalment of the super-hit franchise is set to go on floors in 2018 and is scheduled for a Diwali 2019 release. While we know Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh and Bobby Deol are all set to play the male leads, not much has been revealed about the lead actresses of the film. Now if a report in PinkVilla is to be believed, Kriti Sanon will be seen romancing Akshay in the film. The Bareilly Ki Barfi actress made her Bollywood debut with Sajid Nadiadwala’s Heropanti and if she stars in Housefull 4, it will be her first alongside Akshay and her second film under Sajid’s production banner. Meanwhile, talking about Bobby, a source had earlier revealed to us, “Sajid Nadiadwala and Sajid Khan are close to Bobby and they felt he would fit the role. Talks are still on. They are yet to sign the actor but mostly, he will give the nod to this film.” The comedy, which is based on the theme of reincarnation, will also have a portion with a period setting. “Shooting for Housefull 4 begins in June this year. It will be 2019’s Diwali release,” added the source.

To bring religion into everything is not done: Akshay Kumar.


img

Akshay Kumar launched the trailer of Nanak Shah Fakir on Wednesday. The film spreads the message of ‘Ik Onkar’ (there’s but One God), and Akshay shared his view on the belief and lauded the producers of the film. For many, Akshay Kumar has become the face of films dealing with social issues and his last two movies – Toilet: Ek Prem Katha and PadMan have only strengthened his position as an actor who is consciously rallying towards making content-driven cinema. Khiladi Kumar also doesn’t refrain from speaking his mind regarding a lot of things around the country’s socio-political scenario. The National Award winning actor launched the trailer of Nanak Shah Fakir on Wednesday. The film spreads the message of ‘Ik Onkar’ (there’s but One God), and Akshay shared his view on the belief and lauded the producers of the film. “This film is close to my heart as it shows the teachings of Guru Saheb. Seeing the basic premise of the film why wouldn’t I back it? I always say there is only one god you should follow, whom you believe in,” the star said. Akshay also shared his views on what according to him is a true religion. He said, “I believe in humanity, I just believe in helping others, that is the only religion I follow.” He further added that Bollywood is one of the most secular industries in the country. The actor, who will be seen in Kesari and Gold this year, also made an important comment on how politicians should stop bringing religion into everything. When Akshay was asked if he thinks the teachings of Guru Nanak should be adopted by all politicians who try to use religion to create vote bank politics, he told reporters – “To bring religion into everything…it is not done. I hope everyone follows that.” Nanak Shah Fakir faced a lot of backlash from the Sikh community while it was being filmed. Akshay also had a lot of trouble owing to which he himself decided to shift the release of his film PadMan, which was to clash with Padmaavat. The actor was asked if he thinks that creativity and freedom of expression are at stake today. To this, he said, “I don’t think creativity is at stake, really. People have to understand that. At times what happens is we don’t make a film up to the mark and we get suggestions from people. Here also we got some suggestions and we accepted them, and now the film is looking better.” Produced by Harinder Sikka of Gurbani Media Pvt. Ltd., the film releases on April 13 and will be distributed by Viacom18 Motion Pictures. It is being backed by Akshay Kumar.
