Its Monday guys, the day we love the most (of course we are kidding). Monday Blues are like those guests who keep visiting you even when you don’t invite them. So while we were hosting them again today, we came across a picture on Instagram which calmed us down.
Shah Rukh Khan’s little munchkin, AbRam celebrated his birthday yesterday. AbRamturned 5 years old and proud dad Shah Rukh had the most adorable message for him. While it was a late post, it was worth reading and it brightened up our rather gloomy Monday.
Director Rajkumar Hirani has been new poster of Sanjufrom last few days now. Beginning with, he showed us the alluring chemistry between Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor. Yesterday he gave us a sight of the heart-warming bond between the father-Sunil dutt and son – Ranbir Kapoor.
Today, he took us to his twitter account and shared a new poster of Vicky Kaushal who will be playing the role of Ranbir Kapoor aka Sanju’s best friend. It’s been said he will be playing the role of Kumar Gaurav in the film. Check out the poster:
The biopic depicts the various stages of Sanjay Dutt’s life, the teaser of which has already piqued the interests of the audience.
Sanju showcases the highs and lows of Sanjay Dutt’s life-giving an insight into the unbelievable story of the actor.
The teaser has garnered immense appreciation for the apt portrayal of Sanjay Dutt’s life. While Ranbir Kapoor is being showered with praises for his amazing transformation into each phase of Sanjay Dutt’s life, Rajkumar Hirani is hailed for his realistic portrayal.
The director released multiple posters of the film, revealing the varied looks of Ranbir Kapoor from the biopic. All the posters have gained immense appreciation from the audience and critics alike for the striking resemblance to Sanjay Dutt.
Written and directed by Rajkumar Hirani, the film will also stars an ensemble cast in addition to Ranbir Kapoor which includes Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Vicky Kaushal, Sonam Kapoor and Dia Mirza amongst others.
Produced by Vinod Chopra Films and Rajkumar Hirani Films in association with Fox Star Studios. ‘Sanju‘ is all set to be released on 29th June 2018.
As a producer, Khan has backed three films, including Rowdy Rathore. It’s been 25 years, since she started doing costume designing.
What made her take up a TV show?
“I loved the concept. If you want to stand out, you have to do something different. That’s what I am trying,” she said.
“I will (do more TV shows) but I will do things which… my funda in life is that I want to do things which I will enjoy watching too. Even while making ‘Rowdy…’, my first film, I thought that I would have given Rs 500 to buy a ticket to watch that film,” she added.
The show, which brings together fiction and non-fiction formats together, is nothing short of a film.
“If you watch the show, you will realise that we have made 39 films. So, I have not changed my arena. It (TV) is just another medium. Every episode has been made like a movie. The music is by Amar Mohile, the editing is by Rajesh Pandey who has done films like ‘Padmaavat’ and ‘Bajirao Mastani’. So, my whole team is of films,” said Khan.
The stories revolve around an expecting mother, a cheating husband, a nagging wife, a divorced couple, live-in relationships and more.
What was the biggest challenge?
“I don’t see any difference (between film and TV mediums). For me, any kind of medium, be it film, TV, web or theatre, all you have to do is to entertain,” she said.
Sayani Gupta is one actress that’s known to take up movies and roles that are challenging. From playing Kalki Koechlin‘s lover in Margherita With A Straw to rubbing shoulders with Shahrukh Khan in Fan, this beauty has created quite a diverse platter of good movies that we can choose from.
On Friday, we had a super fun chat with her and she gave us a sneak peek into what it’s like to be a part of Bollywood.
While the Jolly LLB 2 actress revealed that she’s been quite busy shooting for her latest web series Kaushiki, she also told us a little about Bollywood parties
I don’t attend a lot of parties, because you have to put on make up and heels. I’d rather be at home in comfortable clothes, eat and sleep.
And then she dropped some truth bombs too.
Besides, when you attend these parties you’ve to be all nice and appreciate films that were shit.
Well, that’s not the first time we’ve heard that!
But then, she went on to tell us she watches Big Little Lies and Narcos in her free time.
Looks like Sayani is a total chiller, just like us.
After setting hearts aflutter with her glamorous avatar in Veere Di Wedding, which releases this Friday, Kareena Kapoor Khan will be seen as a mother in Karan Johar’s next production. Says a source, “Karan wanted Kareena to do a film with Dharma for the longest time. Right after Ki & Ka (2016), there were talks of her acting in a movie under KJo’s banner, but that had to be deferred because of her pregnancy. Now, both of them have decided to come together for Raj Mehta’s directorial venture.” ALSO READ:After a busy day with Veerey Di Wedding promotions, Kareena Kapoor Khan unwinds with Taimur and Saif Ali Khan
The actress is a doting mommy to her 17-month-old son Taimur. Our khabri reveals, “Given how Kareena plays the role of a mom in real life, she was the perfect fit. The film is a unique take on marriage and relationships. It’s a romcom with a sweet message. When Bebo heard the script, she instantly liked it.” Kareena was earlier seen as a mum in Shah Rukh Khan’s Ra.One.
The relationship drama will have three other actors, apart from Kareena, who plays the main lead. “The story revolves around two couples. While the first has been wedded for a few years, the second is newly married. Kareena will have another A-list actor from her age bracket opposite her. The makers are trying to lock the young couple currently,” adds the source. Filming begins this November.
Although we absolutely love watching Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt together but let’s admit it, Bollywood needs to change in terms of casting actors in film! We can’t have the obvious ones paired opposite each other over and over again just because their chemistry worked in the previous film or say they are lucky for the producers. We, as an audience are hungry to see something new, something different with every next film. Speaking of which, we conducted a poll asking our readers to pick a new heroine for Varun, considering we have so many starkids joining the Bollywood brigade this year right from Sara Ali Khan, Janhvi Kapoor to Ananya Panday. And there…there…majority of our readers want to see Varun and Ananya together. Filmmakers, hope you are reading this! ALSO READ:Sara Ali Khan, Janhvi Kapoor or Ananya Panday – who should Varun Dhawan pair up with in his next?
It comes as no surprise why Ananya has won over Sara and Janhvi. After all, she has already won the tag of being the new Alia Bhatt of Bollywood given that she has stepped into the latter’s shoes in her debut film – Student Of The Year 2. People are drawing comparisons how Ananya is also quite similar to Alia in terms of looks. So what better than replacing Alia with Ananya in Varun’s reel life?
Here check out the poll result below:
The leading actress of Varun Dhawan’s forthcoming film Ranbhoomi is yet to be finalised. So you never know, what if Ananya Panday bags this film? Now that would be exciting, isn’t it? PS: Ranbhoomi is all set to release in Diwali 2020. Until then, you can anticipate and keep hoping for Bollywood to surprise you!
We know it just feels like yesterday when AbRam was born but the cutie turned 5 yesterday and looks like he’s already wanting to behave all grown up. Now that’s what Shah Rukh Khan’s birthday wish for AbRam suggests so. Taking up to Twitter, the doting daddy made a revelation by warning people to not call AbRam a 5-year old as he wrote, “My sunshine turns 5 yrs today but he thinks he is 9! Please don’t tell him otherwise if u meet him. Children should hear their own music, sing their own songs & believe in their own lil dreams…& yeah, hug their papa a lot..” Just how sweet is this message! Amused how his little one is growing up so quickly, SRK even shared a picture of AbRam to show you what innocence looks like. ALSO READ: Happy birthday AbRam Khan!

There’s no denying the fact, Shah Rukh literally dotes on AbRam irrespective of how busy he is or in which corner of the world he is. He’ll ensure to make up for his absence every few weeks by either spending time with AbRam at home or take him for a small vacay. Just recently the father-son duo were off to Switzerland for a skiing session where AbRam even championed the sport.
Check out Shah Rukh’s birthday wish for his ‘sunshine’ AbRam below:

Reminds us how Shah Rukh had once mentioned about his and Gauri’s relationship with their children. “Gauri and my relationship have been geared entirely towards raising our children. That’s what eventually happens. Parents become parents at one point and that changes it all. We have a badass 18-year-old, a dainty 16-year-old and then there’s the three-year-old little gangster. Our conversations, our life together is through the prism of our children. They’ve been our focal point and have literally kept our world intact.”
Much love to this Khan family! You too can convey your lovely wishes in the comments below and keep watching this space for more updates.
