In the last few months, I have seen some of the most fun, interesting and entertaining Instagram Reels. And with each new trend I love how creators try to add their own new twists to it. A Reel trend that has popped up on my feed almost everyday, maybe since the day of it’s inception is the ‘inspirational quotes’ one. The trend is about how you can take negative comments and dress it up using a vibrant, good-looking background or template. The music for this trend is the most positive song one can find, Vanessa Carlton‘s A Thousand Miles. A few creators shared their own interesting and hilarious versions of this Instagram Reel trend and it was every bit amazing.

Kusha‘s version of this trend is so relatable that if I could put a tick mark next to each one of these statements, I literally would. Right from the Aadhar card and passport size photo one to the reminder of a relative’s birthday, this Reel is all of our chats with our dads, amirite?

If I could share this Reel a hundred times or perhaps even more, I totally would. There have been umpteen discussions about such ‘career advice’ being handed out to kids, which needs to change asap. Ranveer, we are so proud of you for addressing these lines as is. Hopefully, they will soon be a thing of the past.

Here’s another version of the boyfriend quotes turned into inspirational ones. Natasha‘s take on this trend is sooo relatable that the feel of this Reel is literally the word DITTO, yes in bold. I think all the boyfriends must have said at least one of these things in their life, I can say that for sure, ‘cuz the word ‘No’ is a universal fave.

So, these were some hilarious, on-point and relatable versions of this trend. I love it when creators get so real with their content and put it out there for the world to see it irrespective of the responses. And for that, kudos to you all.

Aditi Rao Hydari’s Pretty Pink Dress Spells Retro Romance

href=”author/sakshi-kore”>Sakshi Kore , 12 Apr 2021Aditi Rao Hydari | (Source: Instagram | @sanamratansi)

When it comes to details like polka dots, frills, lace accents and trains (optional), one needn’t worry about going wrong in the sartorial department. So obviously, when all these elements come together, it undoubtedly makes for a statement look. Recently, Aditi Rao Hydari wore an outfit featuring all of these details to the promotions of her upcoming Netflix project, Ajeeb Dastaans. Styled by Sanam Ratansi, Aditi donned a head-to-toe pink dress that will make you fall in love with it if you love a pretty outfit with a vintage allure. Scroll ahead for more details of her look.

Aditi Rao Hydari’s ensemble is perfect for summer parties:

Sure with the lockdown, summer of 2021 also doesn’t seem to have a very bright future. But you can always opt to play dress-up at home and indulge in a gram-worthy photoshoot or deck up to the T for virtual parties. If that sounds like a good idea, maybe investing in a dress like Aditi’s won’t be that bad a plan. The actor was seen wearing a flirty number by Rose Room. The off-shoulder dress featured a sheer ruffled layer on the bodice and a peplum skirt. The hems of the dress came detailed with scalloped lace that upped the feminine vibe of the look. The floor-sweeping train from the waist below added an element of drama to the look that Aditi teamed with minimal accessories. A diamond-shaped choker, dainty rings from Raf Fine Jewellery and printed pink heels from Dech Barrouci rounded off her look.

Beauty wise, Aditi sported her signature thick brows, mascara-laden lashes with a sneaky pop of pink on the lids. Blushed cheeks and pink lips with her straightened locks left to graze her shoulders added the pefect finishing touch to her look.

href=”author/sakshi-kore”>Sakshi Kore , 12 Apr 2021Priyanka Chopra Jonas at BAFTA’21 | (Source: Instagram | @priyankachopra)

When Priyanka Chopra Jonas is headed for an event, an unexpected and stylish feed uplift is bound. Just about a month ago, the actor and entrepreneur became the first Indian to announce the nominees for The Academy Awards, which she did in a must-see blue dress. And last night, PC also walked the red carpet at the 74th British Film Academy Awards a.k.a BAFTA to present an award, and of course, walked in not one but two statement looks styled by Law Roach of Luxury Law. The night was truly special for Priyanka as she was a presenter of an award and also a part of the film which was nominated for a whopping seven awards, The White Tiger. Get a better look at her outfits for the night below.

Priyanka Chopra in RVDK Ronald van der Kemp 

The actor made an entry in an all-black outfit consisting of a silk mikado jacket with padded shoulders, a plunging neckline and a 3D, hand-painted butterfly embellished with smaller beaded motifs. To go with the jacket was the perfect, body-hugging plissé skirt that was minimalistic yet statement-making. Diamond earrings and rings from Bvlgari added that touch of shine to her ebony look. A bold red lip, glimmering eyes, black-tip French nails and a centre-parted bubble braid with loose strands framed her face for the evening.

Priyanka Chopra in PERTEGAZ 

Look number two saw Priyanka up the stakes further in a PERTEGAZ set—a hot pink, embroidered jacket featuring a high-neck and an open front worn with a pair of pristine white draped pants. The actor’s way of styling her accessories to go with the ensemble was unusual but smart. She opted for a long necklace with a diamond pendant accented with turquoise beaded tassels from Bvlgari to wear under her jacket that made a risqué cameo. She completed the look with black pointy heels by Christian Louboutin worn over black stockings. The same jewels, hair and makeup followed this look, too.

Sajid Khan Might Direct ‘Awara Paagal Deewana’ Sequel

href=”author/joseph-bhatena”>Joseph Bhatena , 12 Apr 2021Sajid Khan

What? A sequel to ‘Awara Paagal Deewana?’ Wow! I sure am super excited to hear this. The first part was simply amazing and I personally loved every bit of it. Akshay Kumar, Paresh Rawal, Suniel Shetty, Aftab Shivdasani, and others had my jaws hurting as I couldn’t stop laughing watching the film. Vikram Bhatt, with his direction, made sure not to disappoint fans as he delivered a laughter riot of a film! Now, news is that there will be a sequel to the first one and it might be directed by Sajid Khan.

The director has given us some of the best comedy films that will always be afresh in our memories. Sajid has always been passionate about his work and many of the actors love working with him. Firoz Nadiadwala recently in his statement to the press said “If the script comes out well and Sajid approves, he will be directing the film.” Sajid has been Firoz’s first choice in directing the film and if everything works well, he will have Sajid on board as a director.

With the script still in development, we don’t know much about it. But I can’t wait for this to happen! Stay tuned to this space for more updates on this film.

Satish Kaushik: Proper Care Centers And Hospitals Need To Be Arranged For Kids Suffering From Covid-19

href=”author/showbiz-intern”>Showbiz Intern , 12 Apr 2021Satish Kaushik

God, I really miss 2019. Yes, I know we share the same set of emotions because this new normal is really getting on my nerves now, but again,  the only way to stop this phase from extending is by adopting the norms of the new normal and by following all the protocols. The second wave of the COVID-19 is holding a tight grip on our country and due to this, the healthcare facilities are becoming scarce as the cases are doubling every single minute. Recently, Indian film director, producer, and actor Satish Kaushik tested positive and he had a lot to say about the health facility for Covid-19 affected kids, which often goes neglected.

The actor is better now, but he’s worried about his two house helps and his 8-year-old daughter, Vanshika, who also tested positive. In fact, Vanshika was also hospitalized for a month and she was recently discharged. Seeing the struggle of his daughter, Kaushik realized that this is a tough time for kids, too. The actor was recently seen in Kaagaz alongside Pankaj Tripathi and I totally loved his performance in it.

Speaking of his daughter’s condition, the actor says-

This is the second wave and kids are also getting infected. It’s a serious matter that needs to be dealt with by our government. Proper care centers and hospitals for kids need to be arranged. They should comprise a specialized team of pediatricians and nurses who can handle kids adequately.

When my daughter, Vanshika, needed a hospital bed, I managed to arrange one for her. But she wasn’t in a hospital that treats kids or has facilities to deal with Covid-19 related issues with kids. Children are getting diagnosed with multi-system inflammatory syndrome and Vanshika, too, had to undergo many tests. When it comes to health infrastructure, we don’t think of kids instantly.

It is a scary situation and things are getting worse. It is the need of the hour and we should start thinking and making provisions for the same.

Clearly, the government needs to look into this matter and see what best can be done as it’s the only way to stop this situation from getting worse. As the saying goes, ‘Prevention is better than cure‘, I feel the only best bet to keep the virus at bay is by maintaining social distance, wearing a mark, and by getting vaccinated. It’s going to be a long fight for sure but soon we will get there. Stay safe and stay positive, we are in this together.

रणवीर सिंह और आलिया भट्ट करण जोहर की रोमैंटिक कॉमेडी फिल्म में आएंगे नज़र

href=”author/yashiverma”>Yashi Verma , 10 Apr 2021Karan Johar, Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt (Source: Instagram | @karanjohar)

आलिया भट्ट और रणवीर सिंह की जोड़ी गली बॉय में सभी को बहुत पसंद आई थी। इस फ़िल्म के बाद हम इन दोनों सुपर टैलेंटेड एक्टर्स को एक बार फिर साथ देखने का बेसब्री से इंतज़ार कर रहे थे और अब लगता है हमारा ये इंतज़ार खत्म होने वाला है क्योंकि खबरों की मानें तो रणवीर और आलिया, करण जोहर द्वारा डायरेक्ट की जा रही रोमैंटिक कॉमेडी फ़िल्म में नज़र आने वाले हैं।

आपको बता दूँ, ये पहली बार होगा, जब करण रणवीर को डायरेक्ट करेंगे, इससे पहले वो रणवीर सिंह की फ़िल्म सिम्बा को प्रोड्यूस कर चुके हैं और उन्होंने अपने एंबिशियस प्रॉजेक्ट तख्त में भी रणवीर को कास्ट किया था लेकिन कोविड और बजट की वजह से फ़िल्म को होल्ड पर रखना पड़ा।

बात करें रॉम कॉम की, तो स्पॉटबॉय की रिपोर्ट्स की मानें तो करण ने अभी तक कुछ कन्फर्म नहीं किया है, लेकिन उनके फ्रेंड ने इस बात की जानकारी दी है। रिपोर्ट में ये भी कहा गया है के आलिया और रणवीर, दोनों करण के बहुत करीब हैं, आलिया उनकी बेटी की तरह है और करण आलिया को जिस प्रोजेक्ट में काम करने का कहेंगे वो उसमें काम कर लेंगी। इसी के साथ आपको ये भी बता दूँ के ये पहली बार होगा जब रणवीर फुल ब्लोन धर्मा फ़िल्म में नज़र आएंगे।

भई हम तो इस फ़िल्म के लिए बहुत एक्साइटेड हैं, आपका क्या कहना है?

टेलीविज़न के 5 ए लिस्ट सेलेब्रिटीज़ ने बताया अपनी ज़िंदगी का मोटो

href=”author/yashiverma”>Yashi Verma , 10 Apr 2021

Sharad Malhotra, Rupali Ganguly, Jasmin Bhasin, Aly Goni, Vivian Dsena, (Source: Instagram: @sharadmalhotra009, @rupaliganguly, @jasminbhasin2806, @alygoni, @viviandsena)

हम सभी ज़िन्दगी में बहुत कुछ सीखते हैं, बहुत कुछ खोते हैं, बहुत कुछ पाते भी हैं और इन सभी चीज़ो के बीच हमारा एक मोटो बन जाता है जिसपर हम ज़िन्दगी जीती हैं। हम सभी अपनी ज़िंदगी का मोटो जानते हैं, लेकिन क्या आप अपने फेवरेट टीवी एक्टर्स का मोटो जानते हैं? नहीं ना? मैं बताती हूँ। हाल ही में टीवी के पॉपुलर एक्टर्स, अली गोनी, जैस्मिन भसीन, शरद मल्होत्रा, रुपाली गांगुली और विवियन डिसेना ने अपनी ज़िंदगी का मोटो शेयर किया। जानिए उन्होंने क्या कहा।

जैस्मिन भसीन-

इंसान की ज़िंदगी अनमोल है। अपने आप पर भरोसा रखो, अपना बेस्ट करो और हर दिन अपने चेहरे पर मुस्कुराहट के साथ करो। मैं एक स्ट्रेट फॉरवर्ड इंसान हूँ, और मैं ऐसी ही हूँ।

अली गोनी-

अपने दिल की सुनो। ज़िन्दगी को एक दिन एक समय पर जियो। प्रेजेंट में रहो। आपकी खुशी आपकी चॉइस है और आपके जीने का तरीका है। पूरे समय खुदके साथ प्रेज़ेंट रहो।

शरद मल्होत्रा-

आप दूसरों के साथ फिट इन करने के लिए नहीं बल्कि स्टैंड आउट करने के लिए पैदा हुए हैं। मेरा मानना है के इंसान को अपनी ज़िंदगी में, इमोशन्स में, एक्शन्स में और थॉट्स में बैलेंस बनाकर रखना चाहिए। अपने सपनों को फॉलो करें और ये आपको जहाँ पहुँचना है वहाँ ले जाएंगे।

विवियन डिसेना-

अपने स्किल्स पर काम करना और बढ़ते रहना बहुत ज़रूरी है। अपने दिल की सुनें और पॉज़िटिव रहें। ऐसे ही आप खुश रहेंगे।ये आपको खुशी देगा।

रुपाली गांगुली-

एक लाइन है, जिसपर मैं हमेशा चली हूँ। मेरे पापा हमेशा कहते थे के अच्छे लोगों के साथ अच्छा होता है, भले ही देर से हो, लेकिन अगर आप अच्छा करोगे तो आपके पास वो वापस आएगा। तो कभी भी उम्मीद ना हारें। अगर आप अच्छा कर्म करोगे तो भगवान हमेशा आपके साथ रहेंगे।

ये तो हुई हमारे सेलेब्रिटीज़ की बात, आप बताइए, आपकी ज़िंदगी का मोटो क्या है।

Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt‘s chemistry in Gully Boy was appreciated by the audience and critics alike. Looks like we’re going to see these two powerhouses of talent together again but this time in a project helmed by Karan Johar.

According to reports in SpotBoye, KJo will be directing two of his favourite people in the industry in a quirky love story. But Karan hasn’t spoken out about this particular project as of yet. The last we knew of Karan’s directorial plans was for his ambitious magnum opus Takht. But as that is being put on hold due to Covid and budget restrictions, seems like KJo might take this one up first.

While Karan is yet to confirm about the said project, a friend of Karan’s confirmed the news with SpotBoye.

While Alia has been directed by Karan in her very first film, this will be the first time Ranveer will be directed by him. KJo has previously produced Ranveer’s super hit movie Simmba. Both Alia and Ranveer are close to Karan, Alia is like a daughter to him and she would do any project that Karan would tell her to according to the source. It’s widely known that Alia even discusses her projects with KJo. This will be the first time that Ranveer will be seen in a full blown Dharma film.

We’re super excited for this upcoming project and are keeping our eyes peeled for more info on this one.

Ajay Devgn Postpones The Last Leg Of Shooting For His Directorial Debut Mayday

href=”author/pallavi-manoj”>Pallavi Manoj , 10 Apr 2021Ajay Devgn (Source: Instagram | @kajol)

The covid cases in India are increasing day by day while there are reports that suggest some vaccination centres have run out of vaccines. As more and more actors contract the virus, more shoots are being stalled. Maharashtra especially has gone into lockdown once again. Amidst all this, Ajay Devgn has decided to hold of the final stint of the Mayday shoot to a later date keeping his crew’s safety in mind. Despite the pandemic, Ajay has successfully shot major parts of his directorial debut Mayday that stars Amitabh Bachchan and Rakul Preet.

According to the original plan, Ajay and his crew were supposed to head to Doha towards the end of April for a three-day schedule but due to the Covid surge in India, the actor has postponed this bit. Mayday is an aviation drama based on a 2015 incident of a Doha-Kochi flight that has a close shave due to poor visibility and has to be diverted to another airport in South India. The portion in Doha was supposed to be shot with the limited crew in a bio bubble. Doha has also layer down strict travel restrictions at the moment hence strengthening Ajay’s resolve at the moment, according to a report in Mid Day.

We hope he is able to complete the shooting of the film and bring the movie to fruition.

href=”author/alice”>Alice Peter , 10 Apr 2021Karisma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan, Deeksha and Kritika Khurana (Source: Instagram | @kareenakapoorkhan, @thatbohogirl)

Having a sibling is like having a best friend right? They’re always there for you when you need them and also, when you don’t them. It’s like the unsaid rule but a golden one. On the occasion of Siblings Day, we’re celebrating this special bond. In Bollywood, we have one sister sibling duo who are literally the ultimate sister squad, Karisma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan. Right from sharing adorable ‘fam jam’ pics together to slaying it with their on-point fashion looks, their amazing bond makes them quite a powerful pair. In the creator world, we have one such sibling duo that absolutely reminds us of Lolo and Bebo. And that hands down is Kritika and Deeksha Khurana. Why, you ask? Scroll away to find out…

Here’s why we think Kritika and Deeksha are literally Lolo and Bebo…1. Nostalgia is their fave emotion(Source: Instagram | @therealkarismakapoor, @thatbohogirl)

Out of the very many posts and videos that Kritika and Deeksha as well as Kareena and Karisma upload, a sister love post can be spotted often. And a nostalgia post, can be seen too. We love these throwback photos of both the siblings, they look so adorable like absolute lil’ munchkins!

3. Indian fashion on-fleek!(Source: Instagram | @therealkarismakapoor, @thatbohogirl)

5. Pout kinda mood(Source: Instagram | @kareenakapoorkhan, @therealkarismakapoor, @thatbohogirl, @deekshakhurana)

As much as these siblings love smiling, they love pouting too. And tbh, they totally own the statement, ‘Pout Kinda Mood’, don’t you think?

6. Girl-gang(Source: Instagram | @kareenakapoorkhan, @thatbohogirl)

Sibling-Run Businesses & Their Secret Sauce To Success

href=”author/mallika-jhaveri”>Mallika Jhaveri , 10 Apr 2021Sibling-Run Businesses – Clockwise: Carat Crush, Renaye’s Bake Sale, The Mad Dresser, E02 EXP

Siblings make incredible teams (hint hint: Cheaper By The Dozen), so it’s no surprise that when it comes to business, sibling-run ones take the cake. This Siblings Day, instead of speaking about the emotional and moral benefits of having a sibling, we wanted to highlight the profitable ones. Sibling-run businesses are taking over the world and we wanted to know their secret sauce to success. We spoke to Vanshika Gupta and Tanvi Gupta, founders of a one-of-a-kind styling company, The Mad Dresser, Arpan Mahtani and Aanchal Mahtani, founders of the unique jewellery brand, Carat Crush, Renaye Tejani and Rheanne Tejani, a sister-duo running the bakery, Renaye’ Bakesale and Risheeta Agarwal and Rishabh Agarwal, founders of the very cool creative studio, E02 EXP to find out what really gives sibling-run businesses that extra edge. Risheeta says,

The best thing about working with your sibling is that you know your business partner is never going to run away with your money because honestly where will he go? He lives in the next room!

It’s All About The Familial Bond

For all these siblings, their kryptonite is their close bond. The strong and personal relationship they share plays a big role in the success of their business. It helps when bosses have grown up together and share unconditional trust, love and understanding. Aanchal says,

Seamlessness, definitely that’s the biggest perk. We have actually been extremely close since we were children so we would have to say the biggest advantage is we run like a well oiled machine. Sometimes a pointed look across the room is more telling than several sentences.

Vanshika says,

There is a sense of comfort that we wouldn’t have with anyone else in the world. We can trust each other blindly, something that isn’t possible with an outsider.

No Filter=No Fear

When you’ve seen someone in their diaper making all sorts of messes, all inhibitions and filters go out the window. This is a massive advantage for these sibling-run businesses. It helps when one can call the other one out without any fear or apprehension. Risheeta says,

Being siblings, we have zero filters when we have disagreements and our fights can get quite “let’s-get-a-tub-of-popcorn” type. But we know that in the end, we will always be able to work through our differences.

Aanchal also says that the key to their success is clear communication, no matter how good or bad the issue is. Arpan is her biggest critic, and vice-versa, and this helps greatly when it comes to the success of their business.

Blurring Personal and Professional Lines Is Okay

When one does business with family, the personal and professional lines are bound to get messy, and guess what? That’s absolutely okay! In fact, it’s an advantage at times too. Strictly professional relationships don’t always result in the best output and sometimes need a personal touch. Vanshika says,

We take work very personally and somehow I feel that that’s the best thing for us.

Rheanne says,

My relationship with my sister is not formal. We have flexible timings as we work from our home and there are no fixed hours. It’s research and inspiration 24/7! We never completely switch-off, but we enjoy it because of how passionate we are about what we do.

Tanvi, however, says that while complete separation of professional and personal relationships isn’t possible, maintaining some boundaries are. She says,

At first, it was hard for me to separate the personal and professional equation but as time has passed, we have a pretty good understanding of what boundaries you have to set at work.

She further adds that the presence of other co-workers makes a difference to this as her sisters are more professional with each other around their colleagues as compared to when they’re alone.

Embracing The Differences

Not all sibling-duos and trios are perfect and individual differences are bound to set in. In a sibling-run business, instead of fighting it, embracing it is the real key.

Aanchal says,

Arpan is an absolute perfectionist which of course has its benefits but can sometimes be exhausting. I can be laid back in my approach which can also be frustrating. But your sister is your sister at the end of the day which makes you most understanding and most importantly forgiving, which works out great if you are partners.

Risheeta says,

He has a very macro style of working and I have a very micro style of working. But, he knows me and I know him. We know each other’s pluses and shortcomings and we always take up for each other!

The Ultimate Trust Factor

All our sibling-entrepreneurs agreed that trust plays a massive role in the success of their business and it is definitely the majority ingredient of their secret sauce. It helps when you have 100% faith in your business partner. It gives you an incredible sense of security and motivates you to take on bigger challenges and drive your venture to the next level. Plus, it also helps with financial safety and the fear of having your profits stolen, embezzled of worse is non-existent. And if you’ve seen The Wolf Of Wall Street, you know just how important this is. Risheeta says,

Absolute blind trust when it comes to any business decision is one of the biggest plus points because you know the other person inside out.

Some Advice From These Super-Siblings

If you’re looking to start your own sibling-run business, here is the advice you definitely need:

  • Renaye says doing lots of research and making a three-year plan and understand your commercial growth is needed before starting a business together.
  • Arpan says to keep the dynamic simple and give the other respect and treat them as equals.
  • Tanvi and Vanshika say to not think twice and just go for it but also maintain boundaries, because not having any can put a strain on the relationship.
  • Risheeta says the trust and love that siblings share is are incomparable to any other relationship. They will always give you the best advice and help you do whats right, no matter how big or small is the problem is. Plus, they are your personal safety-net.

The Cast Of Masti Celebrate 17 Years Of The Film With A Virtual Reunion

href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 09 Apr 2021Aftab Shivdasani, Vivek Oberoi and Riteish Deshmukh (Source: Instagram | @riteishd)

The 2004 film ‘Masti’, starring Riteish Deshmukh, Vivek Oberoi and Aftab Shivdasani, was a comedy-thriller that went on to become a hit, which gave way for two more instalments – ‘Grand Masti’ and ‘Great Grand Masti’. Directed by Indra Kumar, the comedy also starred Lara Dutta, Amrita Rao, Genelia D’Souza and Tara Sharma, with Ajay Devgn in a supporting role. Today, as the film completed 17 years, Riteish decided to do something special with the cast and planned a virtual reunion on Instagram!

Riteish got Vivek and Aftab along with director Indra Kumar on a live chat, as they discussed the film, fun incidents from shooting the film to their families and children now, many years down the lane. It sure was super fun to see the trio and their undeniable rapport that reflects in the film a 100%! Right from the get-go, Riteish began by pulling Aftab’s leg, asking if his hair was real or a wig, from there on, it was only a laugh riot for everyone on the live!

The four of them discussed how they built their bond shooting the three Masti films together, and even about coming together for a fourth part (when they all have two kids each)!

Lara Dutta, who was not part of the live, took to the comments section to express her disappointment of being left behind and wrote, “Mere Begair (without me)!!!!”

Now, after this live session, I’m sure a lot of fans are already looking forward to the 4th instalment of the Masti series with this fun trio!

Kangana Ranaut-Starrer Thalaivi’s Theatrical Release Pushed Due The COVID-19 Crisis

href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 09 Apr 2021Kangana Ranaut (Source: Instagram | @kanganaranaut)

Kangana Ranaut‘s upcoming release, Thalaivi, was an anticipated film among her fans. The multi-lingual film, based on the life and times of the late actress and Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, J Jayalalithaa, was all set to release on 23rd April theatrically.

However, given the number of COVID-19 cases all over the country has spiked in the past few days, the makers took a decision to push the release.

Just today, the official handle of the film released a note that read:

Dear audience, we are extremely grateful for the tremendous response and unconditional love you’ve shown for Thalaivi trailer. As a team, we have sacrificed a lot in making this film and thank every member of the cast and crew who supported us in this challenging but remarkable journey. Since the film has been made in multiple languages, we would like to release it in all languages on the same day. But with an alarming rise in COVID-19 cases, subsequent precautions and lockdowns, even though our film is ready for release on 23rd April, we want to extend all the support towards the government rules and regulations and have decided to postpone release of Thalaivi. Though we are deferring the release date, we are confident that we will receive as much love from you all then as well. Stay safe and looking forward to everyone’s support.

Check out the post:View this post on Instagram

The film also stars Arvind Swami alongside Kangana and the trailer which release a few days ago was met with a lot of excitement and enthusiasm.

We look forward to watching the film on the big screen very soon.

‘It Was Definitely Challenging Playing Someone As Uninhibited As Leepakshi’ – Fatima Sana Shaikh On ‘Ajeeb Daastaans’

href=”author/avya-sharma”>Avya Sharma , 09 Apr 2021Fatima Sana Shaikh (Source: Instagram | @fatimasanashaikh)

Fatima Sana Shaikh is known for her versatility and the varied roles that she plays effortlessly on screen. In the much-awaited Netflix anthology film Ajeeb Daastaans, the Dangal actress plays a bold and strong young bride who has her moments of vulnerabilities, stuck in an unhappy marriage. Always yearning for love and attention, her character of Leepakshi has diverse characteristics and is multi-layered.

Helmed by Shashank Khaitan, the short film Majnu also stars maverick actors Jaideep Ahlawat and Armaan Rahlan. Majnu is the tale of a young married couple who are clenched in a battle of affection, not with or for each other. And then enters a young new male employee, whose arrival leads to a series of ‘ajeeb’ events.

Fatima Sana Shaikh on the sets of Ajeeb Daastaans

Talking about her character in the film, Fatima Sana Shaikh says—

 My character Leepakshi is very different from myself or any other character I have played before. I would like to think I am brave like her, but fortunately, I have love in my life, unlike her. Leepakshi is very aggressive and doesn’t have any inhibitions. I, on the other hand, am full of inhibitions. My character can go to any extent for attention and playing games whereas I wouldn’t. It was definitely a challenge playing someone as uninhibited as Leepakshi.

Jaideep Ahlawat and Fatima Sana Shaikh on the sets of Ajeeb Daastaans

Talking about the film, Ajeeb Daastaans, it brings together four out of the ordinary stories that plunge into the complex themes of fractured relationships, and human emotions such as jealousy, entitlement, prejudices, toxicity, and their effects. The film brings together some of the country’s finest talent with some stellar filmmakers, actors and technicians. Ajeeb Daastaans is produced by Dharmatic Entertainment and directed by a team of remarkable directors – Shashank Khaitan, Raj Mehta, Neeraj Ghaywan and Kayoze Irani.

The film is all set to release on April 16, 2021 on Netflix. The talented ensemble cast comprises of Fatima Sana Shaikh, Jaideep Ahlawat, Nushrratt Bharuccha, Abhishek Banerjee, Inayat Verma, Konkona Sen Sharma, Aditi Rao Hydari, Shefali Shah, Manav Kaul and Tota Roy Chowdhury. 

I am super excited about this one and sure can’t wait to see what the makers have in store for us!

Shoots Of Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathan, Ranbir Kapoor’s Brahmastra Put On Hold

href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 09 Apr 2021Shah Rukh khan; Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt (Source: Instagram | @iamsrk, @aliaabhatt)

In today’s times, the state of things and work is very uncertain, given the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic has hit a lot of states, Maharashtra especially. Given a lot of shoots had resumed in Mumbai over the past few months with strict protocols in place, a lot of films had resumed their schedules. But now, the state has again gone into partial lockdown, forcing the shoots also to halt.

Among the films whose shoots have been halted are big budget films like Shah Rukh Khan‘s Pathan, Ranbir Kapoor-Alia Bhatt‘s Ayan Mukerji directorial, Brahmastra. Both the films are being shot on a very big scale and have already been pushed because of the lockdown last year.

FWICE general secretary Ashok Dubey told Times Of India that Pathan‘s set was being built on a helipad where SRK and John Abraham were going to shoot. Apart from this and the Brahmasta set, there was also a set being constructed for Vikramaditya Motwane‘s Andolan Pictures, informs Mr. Dubey. He adds that each set had around 250 people working on it and their work has now taken a hit because of the second wave.

Zahid Shaikh of Cine Dancers Association (CDA) also told Times Of India that a Brahmastra song shoot needed 300 dancers, among other song shoots, and they had a lot of dancers back on set. But, as for Brahmastra, Ranbir and Alia’s COVID diagnosis and now, the new regulations stating that no big shoots can happen has further postponed the song shoot.

Here’s hoping things get back to normal super soon and these film teams can go back to completing their long-pending shoots.

कविता कौशिक ने बिगबॉस को कहा फेक रिएलिटी शो

Kavita Kaushik

बिगबॉस 14 भले ही खत्म हो गया है लेकिन इस सीज़न के कंटेस्टेन्ट्स अभी भी सुर्खियों में बने हुए हैं। और इस बार जिस कंटेस्टेन्ट ने सुर्खियाँ बटोरी है वो हैं कविता कौशिक। आपको बता दूँ, कविता का बीबी 14 का सफर अधूरा रह गया था, जब उन्होंने अपने को-कंटेस्टेन्ट्स रुबीना दिलैक और अभिनव शुक्ला के साथ झगड़े के बाद घर छोड़ दिया।

हाल ही में उनके सफर के बारे में ट्वीट करते हुए एक फैन ने लिखा के कविता को बिगबॉस 14 में जाना ही नहीं चाहिए था क्योंकि शो में जाकर उनकी इमेज खराब हुई है। इस बात का जवाब देते हुए कविता ने कहा ‘कोई बात नहीं, एक बार जब आप अपनी इमेज खराब कर लेते हो तो उसके बाद फ्री हो जाते हो’। इसी के साथ कविता ने ये भी कहा के उन्हें उन लोगों के प्यार या नफरत से कोई फर्क नहीं पड़ता जो किसी को एक फेक रिएलिटी शो से जज करते हैं।

यहाँ देखिये ट्वीट-

Its ok, like they say once you've spoilt your "image" you are free! Now I don't give a fu€k about the hate or the love of those who judge someone on a fake reality show 🤗❤ https://t.co/HQ2JZt0FHM

Huma Qureshi is always known to push the envelope with her choice of roles and films, and this upcoming one is no different. The actress is all set to star in a political drama series that is a story of how, in a twist of fate, her character Rani Bharti’s life changes drastically, overnight.

The show showcases how the current Chief Minister disrupts the state’s political machinery in a blink. While his party officials await the name of his successor with bated breaths, the CM’s sudden announcement shocks everyone to the core including his wife Rani Bharati.

We got our hands on some exclusive stills from the film, where Huma is seen as a docile housewife, donning a simple saree and tending to household chores. But I’m sure there are multiple layers to her character and I’m excited to see her in this role!

Directed by Karan Sharma, the show features Huma Qureshi along with Sohum Shah, Amit Sial, Kani Kusruti and Vineet Kumar amongst others. The show will soon be streaming on SonyLIV and I sure cannot wait to catch it super soon.

Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh are all set to collaborate again for their upcoming film Cirkus. Ever since the film was announced, it has been the talk of the town. The shooting of this film began in November 2020 and is still being shot in Mumbai. With Ranveer in the lead role, the film already promises to impress. Rohit hasn’t given out any details regarding the ongoing shoot and is keeping things under wraps leaving the fans guessing.

We’ve all witnessed Ranveer explore different roles and this time, he has been seen working with a bunch of international artists for this film. Rohit and Ranveer have never failed to entertain us in the past and have always left us craving for more. The shooting of this film is going on in full force and with whatever is out, it surely feels like another blockbuster is in the making. The film also stars Jacqueline Fernandez, Pooja Hegde, and Varun Sharma in pivotal roles.

With a cast like this, I am very excited to see what the film has in store for us. Wishing the entire team of Cirkus good luck for the remaining shoot ahead.

Everyone Has Their Own Story And It’s My Duty To Convey Mine: Ananya Birla In Conversation With Vogue India

She may have a household surname to herself but Ananya Birla is more than just her family’s name. A bearer of multiple hats—entrepreneur, singer and mental health advocate, Birla is a force to be reckoned with. She’s got a long list of achievements to herself and being the cover girl for Vogue India‘s April 2021 issue is an addition to her kitty. Dressed in not one but two pantsuits—black-coloured by Celine and vermillion-hued by Cinq à Sept, Birla looks like the epitome of grace and power. Her interview with Vogue had Birla speak candidly about her life as an adolescent, her unexpected choice of career and how she delved into the world of mental health and last but not the least, art and craft! Excerpts from her interesting chat, below.

Upon her childhood:

More often than not, people have a misconception about how being a star kid or a rich kid isn’t as easy as it may appear. “My childhood was very sheltered. I had a curfew and a bodyguard. I felt a lot of pressure to be this perfect kid. I felt claustrophobic trying to live up to what I thought the world wanted me to be.” said Birla, but followed it up with how that, in fact, pushed her harder to achieve her goals and become the person she is today. Her decision to drop out of college at 22 and set sail in the pursuit of her musical career is a by-product of that. But merely signing up with Universal Music Group and dropping singles and collaborative projects with artists like Sean Kingston wasn’t enough. And so, end of 2019, Birla found herself at the terminals, headed to a new life in Los Angeles to further her footprint in the music industry.

Her journey…As a singer:

“As the next generation of a highly conservative business family, my parents and siblings are not as conservative as the world thinks we are. We have our morals and values, but we are not closed-minded.”, explained Birla while talking about her song Everybody’s Lost. The video saw Birla in a sexy element, dressed in a bustier and boots and that inevitably invited a host of unsolicited comments on her reputation. But that had minimal to zero effect on her or her family who recognise her passion and see her for what she is—hella talented.

As a mental health advocate:

Birla also opened up about her struggle with her mental health and the answer is obviously not pretty. But instead of that bringing her down, Birla proudly birthed the Ananya Birla Foundation at the time when the world was working ’round the clock to make the perfect Dalgona coffee. Mental health is not a topic to be taken lightly nor ignored, something that is inherently missing in the rural parts of India. So how can we change that? Leave it to the mastermind. “We are even doing a research project with students from the London School of Economics to see where mental health stands in rural India,” explained Birla who co-founded Mpower with her mother in 2016, a mental health initiative.

And as an entrepreneur:

Besides what looks like a never-ending task list, Birla also has her feet dipped in art and craft courtesy of her brand Ikai Asai. It’s a craft-centric label that designs tableware.

To conclude:

She is unstoppable but with the many hurdles that come her way, she finds her peace in fitness and journaling, as picked correctly from her interesting chat with Vogue. She’s also well-aware of the fact that good is always accompanied by bad and fans with haters. Because every coin inevitably has two sides, as told to her perfectly by her parents.

Tiger Shroff Wraps Up The First Schedule Of ‘Heropanti 2’ In Two Weeks

href=”author/joseph-bhatena”>Joseph Bhatena , 09 Apr 2021Tiger Shroff on the sets of Heropanti 2 

Sajid Nadiadwala‘s Heropanti 2 has wrapped up its first schedule with Tiger Shroff. Not many details about the shoot were shared and director Ahmed Khan made sure things were kept under wraps and completed the film’s first phase of shooting very quietly. Heropanti 2 started off very well and Tiger was seen in full elements on the sets of this film. He was seen wearing a black suit on sets as he was shooting for this film. Tiger had won hearts with his performance in Heropanti and his fans were delighted to know that he is a part of the sequel as well.

Heropanti 2 will feature Tara Sutaria in the lead role opposite Tiger. The two have collaborated once again after their first film Student Of The Year 2. Together, they are known for their on-screen chemistry and brilliant performances and I cannot wait to see yet again what they create together on the 70mm.

I am super excited to see Tiger and Tara work together again and with A.R. Rahman as the music director of this film, I can’t wait for it to release already.

The Big Bull: Here’s Why You Should Catch This Abhishek Bachchan-Led Drama

One of the most anticipated films of the year, The Big Bull, was announced by the makers last year, and since then, I was super excited for it to premiere on Disney+ Hotstar. For the unversed, The Big Bull is a film that is loosely based on the life and times of the big time, news-making stock market broker — Harshad Mehta. It has Abhishek Bachchan essaying his role. Directed by Kookie Gulati, the film also stars Sohum Shah, Supriya Pathak Shah, Ileana D’ Cruz, Nikita Dutta, Samir Soni, Saurabh Shukla and Mahesh Manjrekar among others.

The film is streaming on Disney+ Hotstar from today and here’s why you should catch this film, if you haven’t already:Abhishek BachchanView this post on Instagram

Abhishek Bachchan is an actor who gets into the skin of a character when he takes up any huge role, and this one is no different. Abhishek, as the Big Bull of the stock market, Hemant Shah, has us watching totally invested in his ride to the top (and all the other ups and downs on the way). Abhishek, with his body language, dialect, and that all-knowing smirk, sure does capture the essence of the money-hungry and ambitious stock market broker and manages to keep us hooked to his tale, which is not easy given it lingers over such a grey zone.

Sohum plays Viren Shah, Hemant’s younger brother who is always shadowing him and being the pillar Hemant falls on when he is in trouble. He is the voice of reason behind every move of Hemant and Sohum plays the character with great nuance and earnesty.

For someone like me, who doesn’t have much of an idea about how the stock market functions in a larger level, this film sheds light on how some people like Abhishek’s character, Hemant Shah, made the money they made in the early 90s. The film shows the people, family and emotions behind all the money and success – and all the not-so-happy consequences they face because of it. Ileana’s part, as a financial journalist called Meera, narrates this whole tale in the film, and has also put up a good performance.

The iconic story of ‘The Big Bull’ is put forth well by earnest performances by the entire cast, albeit sometimes falling short on the writing and presentation in places. If you haven’t watched the film yet, this sure can be a great weekend watch!
