Salman turns lyricist with Race 3
The latest song ‘Selfish’ from Race 3 is written by none other than Salman Khan. The superstar, for the first time, turned lyricist for a song and boy, is he a good one at that? “Ek baar baby selfish hoke, apne liye jeeyo na” is the lead line of the track which has got quite a few listeners hooked in no time. “While discussing the creative for the song, I penned down a few thoughts on paper in sync with the plot of the film, which is about the selfishness within the family. When the music director Vishal Mishra heard it, he got extremely excited and said he will come back with a tune for the same. I said, ‘But this is a part of a conversation and not lyrics’. However, he insisted to use the thoughts as it is for the song. Everyone loved the thoughts and wanted it to be used for the song.”, said Salman when he was asked what probed him to write this song which also features Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol and Daisy Shah.
Neha Dhupia pregnant or not??
Where some believe in Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi’s happily ever after. Many suspect they got married because Neha is pregnant. An online portal even revealed how the couple had to plead and convince their families to get them married immediately; which is why the wedding was so hush-hush. However, Neha’s father rubbished the reports saying, “No no.. there is no such thing at all. Since the two got married early, people are thinking otherwise. But there is no such thing. People will keep talking about things and spread rumors as per their wish.” Neha and Angad too, ignored the rumours, and gave their first interview as husband and wife with much love and hope for this new beginning in their life. PS: Angad did talk about raising a kid to only prove how he is ready for parenthood, whenever that happens. You can read his confession HERE

What if Aamir played Sanjay Dutt in Sanju?
A lot has been said about Aamir rejecting Sunil Dutt’s role in Sanju. We finally know why Aamir turned it down as the actor himself reveals, “He (Hirani) approached me with the script and I loved it. He wanted me to play Dutt saab’s role. It is a fantastic role and the story is largely on the father-son relationship. But Sanju’s role is unbelievable. So as an actor, I told Raju that Sanjay Dutt’s role is so wonderful that it won my heart. So in this film I can’t do any other role but Sanjay Dutt’s, which of course I cannot do because Ranbir (Kapoor) is playing it. So, do not offer me anything.” Fair enough, isn’t it?
Legal mess for Sara Ali Khan
In a sudden turn of events, director Abhishek Kapoor has dragged his Kedarnath actress Sara Ali Khan to court summoning the dispute over date issues. As per TOI report, the producer complaints that in 2017 Abhishek took Sara Ali Khan on board when she signed the contract last September. Now as per the makers’ plea in court, Sara had earlier given a nod to be available on all the dates throughout the shoot. But when the makers informed her that the shooting of Kedarnath will go on till May to July 5, her agent said that she won’t be available in June as she’ll start filming for Ranveer Singh’s Simmba. Now, Abhishek Kapoor wants the court to look into the matter and let her know that she can’t start any other film until she finishes Kedarnath. In fact, Abhishek has also asked HC to ask Sara to pay Rs 5 crore for breaching the contract and making damages.
