Ranveer Singh is obviously elated with all the appreciation coming his way for Padmaavat. But, the actor has also decided to move on to his next project with Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy. Ranveer is all set to join hands with Befikre producers Yash Raj Films for their next. The forthcoming film is tentatively titled Faujia.

Furthermore, it is being said that Ranveer Singh will play the role of Sardaar in the film. Interesting, this will be the first time where the actor will be seen in such a unique role. While the details of the same are currently under wraps, we are also awaiting an official announcement.

In the past, there were several reports claiming that Ranveer Singh will play a sardaar in an upcoming film. However, they also suggested that the actor may replace Akshay Kumar in the sequel to the comedy Singh Is Kinng. But soon the buzz around the same died down.

On the other hand, talking about Faujia, we hear that the film is being readied for a 2019 release itself. In fact, if rumours are to be believed, the film too will go on floor next year.

Also, it needs to be considered that Ranveer Singh has two major commitments this year. Besides Gully Boy which has Alia Bhatt as his co-star, Ranveer Singh will also be working on Simmba. The film will bring together Singh with one of the most popular action directors Rohit Shetty. Both these films are expected to hit the silver screen this year itself with Simmba being one of the last releases of 2018.

Shoot of Akshay Kumar starrer Housefull 4 to start ahead of schedule

Towards the end of 2017, we had reported that Sajid Nadiadwala would soon commence work on the fourth instalment in the hit Housefull franchise. Titled Housefull 4, the film would not only see the return of the original cast, but the director Sajid Khan making a comeback to helm the said project. Later we had also reported that the film would be heavy on VFX and would feature a Rs. 75 cr budget for the same. Now we hear that the shoot of the film will in fact begin before schedule.

If what we hear is true then the Sajid Khan directorial will commence shooting from June 2018 instead of December this year. The reason apparently for the work on the film commencing in advance is that since Housefull 4 will be heavy on VFX that will of course take time, the makers are keen on wrapping up the shoot before going into post production and rushing the process. With this new development, the makers of Housefull 4 are looking to complete the shoot of the film as well as the VFX to make it for a Diwali 2019 release as announced.

As for the film itself, though not much details of the story are known, Housefull 4 will feature Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Sanjay Dutt, John Abraham, Parineeti Chopra, Disha Patani and Kiara Advani.

Remember Karan Malhotra? Yes the same guy who directed Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra in the film Brothers which was a remake of the Hollywood flick Warrior. Well, the director was supposed to commence work on the much talked about film Shuddhi. However while that project never really took off, we hear that Karan has now signed a three film deal with, wait for it, Yash Raj Films. If that wasn’t all we also hear that the first film from the three will interestingly star Ranbir Kapoor.

Though the nitty-gritties of the said three film deal between Karan and YRF are being kept under wraps, the film that features Ranbir is said to be the first that will go on floors. Interestingly, Ranbir Kapoor who was last seen in Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos, that took a lifetime to complete, has been busy with the Rajkumar Hirani venture which is the Sanjay Dutt biopic. But with reports of the Dutt biopic on hold for now, Ranbir who has dedicated almost a year to the film will now feature on the big screen only towards the end of 2018 or 2019.

While an official confirmation on the same, isn’t available yet, a source close to the developments states that Ranbir Kapoor has in fact already signed on for the film. If that wasn’t enough, the source also points out that, while Karan Malhotra who till date has worked exclusively with Karan Johar’s Dharma Production, will make his entry into the Yash Raj Films camp with this three film deal.

Kareena Kapoor Khan will be a part of the video titled I Rise which is inspired from the Maya Angelou’s three part series And I Still Rise. The video focuses on the achievements of real life women from different walks of life and also showcases their determination, courage and sincerity towards their dreams. While Kareena is the only actress featuring in the video, it aims at breaking myths and stereotypes towards the female gender.

From plus-size model and make-up artist Kritika Gill to rapper Sophia Ashraf, from paraplegic badminton player Bharti Gehani to transgender Anjali Lama, they will raise voice against gender discrimination. Speaking to a daily regarding the campaign, Kareena Kapoor believes that it inspires you to rise above the ordinary. She added that it aims at confident, elegant and a working woman.

Also, the five women in the video will be designed by Anita Dongre. The video will be shot later, by the end of February. Since it will be the arrival of summer, Kareena described that their outfits will be fun and bright. Considering the heat, the clothes will be a perfect wear for the season.

The Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial Padmaavat that was slated to release in December last year ran into immense trouble with the Rajput Karni Sena taking an objection to the film. As per the Karni Sena, the Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor starrer went against history and did not show the Rajput valour correctly. Following protests from this group, the release of the film was stalled only to release in January amidst tight security with a few locations opting not to screen the film at all. However now a week after its release, the Karni Sena have finally given Padmaavat a clean chit, stating that the film glorifies Rajput valour.

On Friday, the Karni Sena finally announced that it has decided to withdraw its protests and accept the film as it is. The protests that started off in January 2016 with Sanjay Leela Bhansali being assaulted on sets of the film in Rajasthan escalated to demands for the director’s head. In its announcement on Friday the Karni Sena’s Mumbai leader Yogendra Singh Katar stated that on the directions of organisation’s national President Sukhdev Singh Gogamadi, a few members watched the movie in Mumbai on Friday, and found that the movie glorifies the valour and sacrifice of Rajput and every Rajput will feel proud after watching the film.

Further talking about the reasons for the withdrawal of the protests, Katar added that there were no objectionable scene between Ranveer Singh’s character Alauddin Khilji and Deepika Padukone’s character Queen Padmini of Mewar that could hurt the sentiments. If that wasn’t all, Katar added that the Sena would help the administration to release Padmaavat in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat as well as across all cinema houses in India.

Padmaavat that also stars Jim Sarbh, Aditi Rao Hydari in prominent roles released worldwide on January 25.

Salman Khan came to the rescue of Ram Kapoor at his new show after Rani Mukerji failed to make it

While he is known for his small and big screen roles, Ram Kapoor now decided to experiment with comedy. Playing the host, his new show Comedy High School shot its first episode on Wednesday but experienced turbulence. The show was supposed to feature Rani Mukerji as the first guest but Salman Khan shot the said episode.

The confusion was a result of Rani Mukerji’s ill health. It is a known fact that one of the episodes of Karan Johar and Rohit Shetty’s show India’s Next Superstar was supposed to feature the actress. But Rani’s health had played a spoilsport then too. Hence, the show went on without her. Similarly, Ram Kapoor’s show’s first episode was left in a lurch without Rani Mukerji. That’s when Salman Khan decided to come to the rescue.

Salman Khan joined the team of Comedy High School at 6 in the evening whilst shooting this week. However, we hear that the superstar was under the weather. He was suffering from fever and cold but continued with the shoot. It is being said that the hot water, inhaler and coffee acted as saviors for the superstar. He not only interacted with everyone but also performed. The actor put up a small act by performing on songs like ‘Sajan Radio’ from Tubelight and the Dabangg title track.

Not just that, we hear that Salman Khan also sang popular tracks like ‘Hangover’ and ‘Tu Hi Tu’ from Kick. The show was undoubtedly incomplete without the superstar making an intriguing statement. Making an interesting revelation, Salman chided about how he has ended up searching schools for his friends’ kids [indicating at Karan Johar, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor, Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra]. What further left everyone was surprised was when Khan mentioned about having ‘nau bachche’. But eventually they realized that this was just a slip of tongue! Apparently, Salman had spoken about having ‘no bachche’.

An oops moment maybe!

Release of Kangana Ranaut starrer Manikarnika postponed

Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi created much buzz initially, courtesy, the major fallout between Kangana Ranaut and director Ketan Mehta. The film was initially supposed to be made by Ketan as Jhansi Ki Rani which later took a new form as Manikarnika. The film, which is Kangana’s ambitious project, however may not be able to make it on time.

Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi, which has had some major shoot schedules in Rajasthan, was to release in April. The film may have had a clash with the then ongoing IPL. But however, it seems that the makers will not be able to retain the release date. If recent rumours are to be believed, the film may get pushed further.

Although an official announcement is awaited, it is being said that VFX is proving to be troublesome for the film. Audiences may be aware that Manikarnika is a period drama. Hence the film is heavy on VFX. Due to the same, it is being said that the extensive prep for the same is taking time. Hence there are chances of a delay.

On the other hand, grapevine also has it that Manikarnika is facing financial constraints. It is a known fact that the film requires an extensive budget to erect sets. The film also involves palaces and battlefield shots which are integral to the plotline. Hence, in all probability, the budget may have gone tad overboard. Obviously, this doesn’t seem to have gone down well with the makers. And hence, it is considered as one of the major reasons for the delay.

However, the entire team of Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi including Kangana Ranaut has maintained silence on the matter. The film is also said to star TV star Ankita Lokhande, Sonu Sood, Jisshu Sengupta among others in prominent roles. Also, details of the release date post the delay is yet to be revealed.

});A special screening of Aiyaary was held by Revising Committee of Ministry  of I&B, which was also attended by officials from Defense Ministry also, yesterday whereby the body has asked for certain changes in the film. In an unexpected turn of events Neeraj Pandey’s espionage thriller Aiyaary failed to receive clearance from the Censor Board of Film Certification (CBFC) until nearly a week before the film’s release.

The body however is being tight lipped about the content of these scenes.”

Aiyaary is touted to be an espionage thriller, backed by a crisp and intriguing storyline. Directed by Neeraj Pandey, the film falls next in line with the renowned filmmakers celebrated works like A WednesdayBabySpecial 26and M.S.Dhoni: The Untold Story. Known for his twisted thrillers, Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary too promises to be an edge of the seat watch, that will leave the audience hooked.
