The movie has drawn a lot of interest especially as it is Kareena Kapoor Khan’s first film since she became a mother, and Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s first movie to release since her wedding. For Swara Bhasker, it is a different zone that she is stepping into. Shikha Talsania also makes the right noise in the film, directed by Shashanka Ghosh.

They are cast in a coming-of-age story revolving around the lives of four friends who deal with the trials and tribulations regarding family acceptance, marriage and societal perceptions in the modern-day world. The girls openly talk about their sex lives and hurl abuses.

“A lot of it is hard work paying off. But for me since it is my first film a lot of it has to do with the acceptance of audience. If we count the audience as one, they say yes or no. And for me it was a big yes.”

Will he be careful while picking his next project?

“I am always willing to take risks. Instead of being more careful, it is convenient now. There are a lot of big filmmakers, whom I can approach. It is now easier to get to them than before and talk to them.

“They have seen my work. I feel I am in a more comfortable place than before to choose my next part.”

And Vishwas is in no mood to slow down.

“I have been on a break for the last eight years. I am not thinking of a break right now,” he said, adding that he is going through some scripts.

“I will make an announcement soon,” he said.

Kareena Kapoor Khan caught binging on a pizza by Rhea Kapoor in London – watch video

London is where Bollywood is, as of now. We are strictly talking about vacations here. Everyone is thronging the English capital for their vacay. Yesterday, Kareena Kapoor Khan left for the destination, along with Taimur and Saif Ali Khan and before that, Sonam and Rhea Kapoor had already made it to London. Now, when the Veeres are in the same town, they will obviously make the most of it. So Kareena, Sonam, Rhea, along with Arjun Kapoor, who is shooting for Namaste England there, got together for some munchies. That’s when Bebo got caught doing something you wouldn’t expect her to. Don’t we all gush about her fetching body these days, which she got through her extreme gymming sessions? You would think she wouldn’t even look at carbs but Kareena was found gorging on pizza. Rhea has captured the whole account where the actress is trying to prove that she just had a spinach salad instead. (Also read: Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra are painting the town pink in this still from Namaste England -view pic)

The video is simply hilarious. Kareena even made a face which screamed, ‘Oh god, I am caught.’ She then played along with Rhea. Arjun, who was sitting next to her, only wanted to click a pic with Bebo while Sonam concerned herself with a ‘Hi.’ Check out the video right here…

We wonder as to where is Taimur.

Ekta Kapoor: Breaking The Glass Ceiling & Box Office Numbers, One Film At A Time!

Ekta Kapoor’s recent collaboration with Rhea Kapoor on Veere Di Wedding has set a new industry benchmark with an outstanding opening day number 10.75cr, making it this years third highest opener.

Ekta has consistently pushed the box office envelope with record breaking opening day numbers through clutter breaking marketing and buzz campaigns.

Industry rules were similarly re-written when Balaji opened Udta Punjab, an atypical Multi-starrer, with a relatively dark subject to over 10cr on day one. Similarly Half Girlfriend opened to a double digit number on Friday, taking the box office by storm. Both films had immense buzz around then and their marketing campaigns helped sky rocket collections, and went onto becoming benchmarks in themselves. The massive buzz generated with clutter breaking marketing campaigns have contributed immensely to the opening weekend for these films.

Another big feat was when Ekta decided to ‘present’ a small budget film, like Lipstick Under My Burkha, which didn’t boast of any mainstream stars and took the film’s buzz to the next level.

The hype and anticipation created by the studio across these varied films of different genres ensures that they’ve consistently broken records.

Getting a successful number on path breaking, seemingly risque’ content has become Balaji’s biggest ace.

The studio has never shied away from pushing their content with full might, to add to this, is their eclectic line up consisting – Imtiaz Ali’s Laila Majnu, Mental Hai Kya starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s next, Lipstick Under My Burkha director, Alankrita’s untitled and Sree Narayan Singh’s biopic on The Milkman of India.

The promise is quite simple- Entertainment, Entertainment and Entertainment!

Here’s to shattering more such records and glass ceilings!
