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.

Exclusive: Busy 2021 For Kriti Sanon As She Begins Shooting For Adipurush Post April 10

href=”author/showbiz-intern”>Showbiz Intern , 05 Apr 2021Kriti Sanon

Kriti Sanon is clearly on a roll and there’s no stopping it! The actress gained popularity for her impeccable acting skills and good looks which manages to steal our hearts every single time we see her on-screen. I still remember how I was in awe of her performance in her first film Heropanti, and eight years post that, the feeling is still the same. She’s one actress whose career graph just keeps getting better and this year she will be seen in not one but, seven films! Yes, you read that right.

The actress is currently shooting for Bhediya in Arunanchal Pradesh and after 10th April, she will commence shooting for an Indian mythological film directed by Om Raut titled, Adipurush alongside mega-star Prabhas and Saif Ali Khan. This movie is based on the Hindu epic Ramayana and we will get to witness Kriti as Sita, Prabhas as Lord Rama, and Saif Ali Khan as Ravana. As a child, I enjoyed reading mythological stories and Ramayana was my absolute favourite. It will be interesting to watch this movie as we will get to see our favourite stars in never-seen-before avatars.

Along with the above-mentioned movies, Kriti has multiple major films lined up, which include — Bachchan Pandey with Akshay Kumar, Ganapath with Tiger Shroff, Mimi, Hum Do Hamare Do, and another movie that is still under wraps. 2021 is surely going to be a busy year for this actress and I can’t wait to watch all her movies.

Throughout these years, this talented dance crew has formed a legacy for themselves with their unique locking & popping animative style.

They won the title of India’s Dancing Superstar on Star Plus back in 2013 and since then their following has only been growing by the day.

Many A-list celebrities like Kartik Aryan, Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Remo D’Souza and many more have been a fan of MJ5′s work. However, they took everyone by surprise when they launched their own debut single ‘Bawaal‘ and ventured into the music industry. Their track composed by Dixant Shaurya and Nitish R Kumar in association with One Digital Entertainment. Their colourful music video was shot entirely in the Maldives and it gives out a beautiful summery weekend vibe. Directed by Kishalay Tiwari and Nitish R Kumar, The idea behind this fun track is to encourage people to adopt a positive mindset and combat the pandemic-blues that many of us are feeling. MJ5 nailed the vocals and it can truly pass off as the new summer anthem of 2021! Also, this track proved how versatile these boys are, from kick-ass dancing to creating groovy music, they can do it all.

Here’s what the founder of MJ5, R Kartik has to say,

While our dance work has been largely influenced by international artists like Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, Chris Brown and Usher. We have also been very fond of BTS and the cult legacy they have carved for themselves as a boy band in the millennial age. As creative artists, we never wanted to restrict ourselves to just dance and wanted to explore other avenues within the creative gamut. Our vision is to be one of the best millennial powerhouse boy band sensations and India’s answer to BTS & K-Pop music. Our debut track is an ode to all the heroes out there who emerged like warriors from a tumultuous 2020 and dived into 2021 with gratitude and optimism, looking towards a promising future devoid of restrictions and dismay. That darkness is behind you, and only happiness is ahead.

href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 01 Mar 2021Vicky Kaushal & Manushi Chhillar

Vicky Kaushal & Manushi Chhillar‘s upcoming film under Yash Raj Films went on floors recently as we saw the cast new off for the shoot of the film in Maheshwar. While it was said to be a comedy, we hadn’t known of the title yet. Now, a Bollywood Hungama report states that the film finally has a title, though it is only tentative.

Directed by Victor, a source tells the publication that the film is a “madcap comedy of errors” and that it’s going to be called ‘The Great Indian Family’ or TGIF (which is also millennial lingo for Thank God It’s Friday). The film is reportedly set to revolve around a dysfunctional family and is the first time Vicky is attempting to do comedy.

The source also mentions that it is only the tentative title and that it can change according to Aditya Chopra‘s wishes. The team is also said to have almost completed shoot on the project. But coming to whether this will be Manushi’s debut vehicle, the source confirms that thought this film is shot, Prithviraj, starring Akshay Kumar in the lead, will be Manushi’s Bollywood debut this Diwali. The source ends by adding that TGIF will release only sometime in early 2022.

Now, with the title also here, I am super excited to catch Vicky and Manushi in this comedy! What about you guys?

href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 24 Feb 2021Sidharth Malhotra, Amitabh Bachchan and Akshaye Khanna (Source: Instagram | @sidmalhotra, @amitabhbachchan)

The legendary Amitabh Bachchan has given us some iconic performances and films that have managed to stay with us still. One such film of his is the 2002 film, Aankhen, where he played a blind mastermind called Vijay Singh Rajput who successfully takes on a bank heist along with two other blind men played by Akshay Kumar and Arjun Rampal.

Now, he is set to come back with the sequel to the film titled Aankhen 2. Directed by Abinay Deo, the film will also star Sidharth Malhotra and Akshaye Khanna. News was that Sunil Grover has also joined the cast. According to an article in Mid-Day, the makers are intending to kick start the first schedule of the film this May.

About the shoot starting soon, a source tells the publication:

The heist in Aankhen 2 is being planned on a grander scale. The temperamental Vijay Singh Rajput returns after serving his prison sentence and leads a new team of visually-impaired people, played by Sidharth, Akshaye and Sunil, as they rob a gaming establishment. Considering the story is set abroad, the unit has done recce in the UK and Bulgaria. If all goes well, the three actors will kick off the first schedule from May 20 with Bachchan joining them later.

The source also adds that Sidharth is currently shooting for Mission Majnu in Lucknow and will begin prep for Aankhen 2 from mid-April before starting shoot in May.

Previously in 2016, the sequel was announced with Amit Ji, Anil Kapoor and Arshad Warsi along with Regina Cassandra. But the film didn’t take off then.

When Mid-Day contacted director Abhinay Deo, he confirmed that the film and main cast including Amit Ji, Sidharth and Akshaye are confirmed, but that he cannot comment on anything else as they are not very sure of the shoot schedules.

I sure am excited to see this interesting cast come together in this sequel! What about you guys?

Huma Qureshi Wears A Dress That Looks Like A Poppy Flower And We Love It

href=”author/nelly-wadia”>Nelly Wadia , 23 Feb 2021Huma Qureshi

Huma Qureshi has been quite the flag bearer for loungewear ever since we’ve gone into hibernation. All of her appearances have been pretty cute and laid-back; she never fails to carry a statement bag with her no matter where she goes. Her latest appearance is quite the step away from her lounge-wear loving days. The star is pretty busy with work and is gearing up for the release of Army Of The Dead. The zombie film will release on the global streaming platform Netflix on May 21, 2021.

The film star an ensemble cast and is a sequel to the 2004 release Dawn of the Dead. The film follows the aftermath of a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas along with a group of mercenaries who risk their lives and venture into a quarantine zone to pull off a heist. Apart from this, the star also has Bell Bottom opposite Akshay Kumar and Vaani Kapoor in her kitty. The movie is set to release on May 28th, 2021. So it looks like May is going to be a pretty busy and happy month for Huma Qureshi.

Here’s a look at Huma Qureshi’s poppy orange dress:

Huma Qureshi wears a pretty orange midi dress. The dress features a deep V-neck, puffy sleeves and an asymmetrical hemline. The A-line dress perfectly complements and accentuates her body; even the length of the dress is so flattering to her height. The star keeps it simple and opts for nude, braided slides; this is where I think she plays it safe and could have opted for something more fun. Even a nude sandal with gold details could have made her look pop. She leaves her hair open and curly. Neutral makeup with flushed cheeks, kohl-lined eyes and a muted pout complete her glam. She finishes out her look with a black facemask.

Sara Ali Khan Puts A Modern Twist On A Victorian Style Blouse

href=”author/nelly-wadia”>Nelly Wadia , 19 Feb 2021Sara Ali Khan

We often spot Sara Ali Khan around the city. She is amongst the top photographed and is always well-dressed. Most times we see her in salwar sets and relaxed kurta styles. And every now and then she throws a curveball our way with a look that completely surprises us. The star experiments quite a bit with colour and styles for promotional events but likes to keep it simple and classy on her personal days. In fact, we spot her in gym wear almost every day.

On the work front, Sara is not too many films old just yet but there’s more to see of her for sure. She even won the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut in Kedarnath opposite the late Sushant Singh Rajput. Her last movie Coolie No 1 didn’t do really well, so we’re looking forward to her role in Atrangi Re opposite Akshay Kumar and Dhanush.

Let’s take a closer look at Sara Ali Khan’s modern take on an old trend:

At first glance, you simply notice the statement blouse that Sara Ali Khan is wearing. The white blouse features a high-neck and re-imagined Victorian-style sleeves. Well, you could say that are bishop sleeves with a twist. The top even features a slight peplum effect closer to the hemline and cinches at the waist with an almost corset-like effect. Sara pairs this blouse with a pair of light blue skinny jeans. She plays around with neon pink pops of colour throughout the look with her accessories. A pair of sparkly neon pink hoops and she matches it to her viny strappy shoes. It doesn’t end there, she even matches her nail polish to her accessories.

Sara Ali Khan carries a statement cross-body bag from the Italian brand, Pinko. The mini Love Transparent shoulder bag is crafted with PVC in a quilted-effect. It has a small bird-shaped decoration and metal studs on the flap. The small birds are actually known as the Lovebird ornament and the bag costs approximately 30k rupees. She has her hair in a ponytail and completes her look with kohl-lined eyes and a blue facemask.

‘In My Last Three Films, The Sets Were Plastic-Free’ — Bhumi Pednekar

href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 29 Jan 2021BhumI Pednekar

Actress Bhumi Pednekar has always been an environmentally conscious citizen who has taken it upon herself to raise awareness about climate conservation. She has also launched her own online and offline initiative called Climate Warrior. Now, she has taken an opportunity to also mention her industry, which has also come forward to raise awareness about climate conservation and zero-waste.

On World Environment Day last year, Bollywood celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Anushka Sharma, etc came forward for Bhumi’s ‘One Wish For The Earth’ initiative and urged everyone to plant more trees and do their bit to take care of their environment. Last Diwali, Bhumi wished her industry by sending her colleagues saplings that they could plant in their homes.

Bhumi says that it is not just her fraternity coming forward to support her initiative, but that the entire mindset of people in the industry has also shifted for the better.

She shares:

My last three films, the sets were plastic-free. There was no use of single-use plastic. The crew were using steel water bottles. These are very productive steps, because the kind of garbage that is like – that comes out of a film set is large. And this is a conversation that I have with most of my film teams.

She goes on to add:

Another thing that I talk to the team with is about wastage of food and the industry is doing whatever it can to ensure this doesn’t happen on sets. Like, for example, on Durgamati, because that was my last project that I shot for before the pandemic, all the excess food was distributed in a very hygienic way to people who are less fortunate. There were extra meals cooked on set that we could distribute to people. It was a completely pet bottle-free set. So, these are the productive changes that we have to bring about.

This sure is a great step in the right direction, don’t you guys think? Kudos to you, Bhumi!

On the work front, Bhumi will next be seen in the film Badhaai Do opposite Rajkummar Rao, which is a follow-up film to Badhaai Ho. She is currently shooting for the film in Dehradun.

Khiladi Akshay Kumar has announced the release date of his much-awaited, Bachchan Pandey. He made the announcement days ahead of Republic Day accompanied by a new still. The film will hit the theatres on January 26, next year.

Taking to his Twitter, Akshay wrote, “His one look is enough! #BachchanPandey releasing on 26th January 2022!” The actor also shared a picture with a serious look on his face, donning a brown shirt and a matching stroll tied around his head.

Have a look at the tweet here—

The team of Bachchan Pandey, including Akshay, Kriti Sanon and Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol is currently shooting in Jaisalmer.

While the cast and crew members of the film have been sharing pictures and videos from the location, the first look of Akshay from the movie grabbed everybody eye. The 52-year-old actor will be seen in a never-before-look in the film. Sharing the look the actor wrote, “New year, old associations…begun shooting for #BachchanPandey, my 10th film with #SajidNadiadwala, and hopefully many more. Need your best wishes and do tell me your thoughts on the look.”

Akshay Kumar’s Bell Bottom May Go For A Direct Digital Release

href=”author/pallavi-manoj”>Pallavi Manoj , 20 Jan 2021Akshay Kumar (Source: Instagram | @akshaykumar)

Akshay Kumar was one of the first actors that jumped back into shooting after the multiple Covid-induced lockdowns our country had. Not to mention that he was also one of the first actors to release his movie Laxmii on Disney+Hotstar. While the movie itself didn’t do too well, looks like another Akshay Kumar film is all set to release on a streaming platform.

The first film that Akshay Kumar started shooting for post lockdown called Bell Bottom may go for a direct OTT release if a report in Bollywood Hungama is to be believed. The producers of the movie Jackky Bhagnani and Vashu Bhagnani have started conversations with Amazon Prime for a direct digital release and so far it seems the deal is going well. There might be some clarity about the same next month.

Just after the release of Laxmii, the makers of Bell Bottom had released a teaser mentioning a theatrical release on 2nd April. But that seems unlikely as another Akshay film, Sooryavanshi might be looking for a release right around then. But the makers are still in discussion about the same and no official announcements have been made yet. Are you shocked by this decision?

Video: Akshay Kumar Plays A Game Of Volleyball With The Jawaans On Army Day

Akshay Kumar always is always one to celebrate our wonderful nation and never misses a chance to respect and honour the armed forces who put their lives on the line to keep us safe everyday.

Just today, on Army Day, the actor went to meet the ‘bravehearts‘ of our nation and engaged in a fun game of volleyball with them. He was there to flag off a marathon on the occasion of Army Day and what better way to bond with them and warm up for the long marathon ahead than a high-energy match, no?

Akshay took to his Instagram to share a glimpse from his game with the army men and it looked like one power-packed one! Akshay can be seen hitting the ball in slow motion in the video.

On the work front, Akshay was one of the first actors to resume work post the nationwide lockdown. He even travelled overseas and completed the first schedule of his upcoming film, Bell Bottom in the UK. He is now working on his next film, Bachchan Pandey for which he is shooting in Jaisalmer. His fan accounts were seen sharing glimpses of him from the sets on the internet today and it has gone viral.

Katrina Kaif’s Retro Cartoon Tee Leaves Us Feeling Extra Nostalgic

href=”author/nelly-wadia”>Nelly Wadia , 19 Aug 2020Katrina Kaif | (Source: Instagram | @katrinakaif)

Katrina Kaif was born in Hong Kong and moved around with her family quite a bit before settling in London. The actress received her very first modelling assignment as a teenager and soon began to actively pursue it as a career. Filmmaker, Kaizad Gustad spotted Katrina at a fashion show in London and decided to cast her in Boom. Since then, Katrina has been an unstoppable force in the industry with some of the highest-grossing films like Ek Tha Tiger, Dhoom 3 and Bang Bang! in her kitty.

On the work front, Kat’s last released movie Bharat with Salman Khan is an adaptation of the South Korean film Ode to My Father. She’s gearing up for Rohit Shetty‘s action film Sooryavanshi with Akshay Kumar that has been postponed due to COVID-19. Recently we saw photos of another one of her upcoming films with Ishaan Khatter and Siddhant Chaturvedi titled Phone Bhoot.

Here’s a closer look at Katrina’s retro and classic outfit that is giving us all those nostalgic vibes:

Firstly, I have to say; Katrina’s legs shiny and fit as hell. She seems to be lounging on a window sill with french windows looking happy, shiny and fresh. So apart from looking entirely cute and like a snack, Katrina is tugging at our heartstrings with her white Tom & Jerry tee. 80 years later and it seems like Reebok has paid a tribute to our favourite cat and mouse of all time. If your childhood isn’t filled with memories or Tom chasing and tormenting Jerry then you, my friend have certainly missed out on a major chunk of humour.

Katrina pairs her classic white cartoon tee with a pair of shorts with frayed edges and another Rebook classic—The Classic Leather Legacy shoe. The shoe is an amalgamation of the late ‘70s and early ‘80s Aztec, a running shoe from 1979 and the Classic Leather, an athleisure shoe from 1983. It bears an old, heritage soul but in the form of a new shoe reimagined for millennials. In short, it is the past perfected into an effortless silhouette and easy to wear lifestyle shoe with a whole lot of colour and retro feels. This entire look personifies a summer vibe and screams of summer staples that women need in their closet.

Love the natural makeup and free-flowing beachy hair, perfect for a loungy outfit like this.

Try to be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud, your legacy is every life you touch 🧡 #writeyourlegacy ✏️🧡 Wearing my new #ClassicLeatherLegacy from @reebokclassicindia. An effortless and easy-to-wear retro-running inspired lifestyle shoe, with a whole lotta color 💙 Get your pair on shop4reebok.com or at select Reebok stores.

A post shared by Katrina Kaif (@katrinakaif) on Aug 17, 2020 at 10:43pm PDT

An act of kindness:

I feel like the actress also deserves a shootout for lending financial support to about 100 dancers. The dancers used this aid to start small businesses like tiffin services, beauty services and selling homemade chocolates. Isn’t that exactly the proof we need to believe that good people exist and good things can continue to happen?

What do you think of Katrina’s look?  Let me know in the comments below.

Diljit Dosanjh To Return To Work With Ali Abbas Zafar’s Film On 1984 Riots

href=”author/avya-sharma”>Avya Sharma , 17 Aug 2020Diljit Dosanjh (Source: Instagram | @diljitdosanjh)

Diljit Dosanjh’s craze is worldwide. The actor-singer rocks both the Punjabi and the Hindi film industry with his fantastic performances. The singer recently dropped his album G.O.A.T which was even featured on one of the billboards in Times Square, New York. Now, according to the reports, the actor who is all excited to resume work will start with Ali Abbas Zafar‘s film based on Delhi’s 1984 riots. The actor will return to the sets once the lockdown is lifted.

Speaking about his collaboration with the filmmaker he said, “Yes, I am really looking forward to this film. Once lockdown restrictions are removed, we will decide on the dates.”

The star also has another film titled ‘Suraj Pe Mangal Bhaari Hai‘ lined up for release. The actor had completed shooting for the film before the lockdown was announced. He will be seen playing a groom who has a detective following him to probe his past. Actor Manoj Bajpayee will be playing the detective. The film helmed by Abhishek Sharma will also feature Fatima Sana Sheikh.

Diljit was last seen in  Raj Mehta‘s Good Newwz which also starred Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Kiara Advani. 

Kiara Advani And Varun Dhawan Step Out In Fun Monsoon Looks

href=”author/nelly-wadia”>Nelly Wadia , 07 Aug 2020Kiara Advani and Varun Dhawan spotted in Mumbai

It feels like aeons since we’ve been on lockdown, well if I’m being precise then it’s been about 5 months. But it slowly but surely looks like Bollywood is going back to a new normal. We’ve seen actors stepping out a little more now and we’re always ecstatic about that. Akshay Kumar, Huma Qureshi and crew recently flew out to the UK to being shooting Bell Bottom. And then we see, Kiara Advani and Varun Dhawan coming out of the old Dharma office in Mumbai. We can’t help but feel hopeful about seeing them on-screen together in the near future.

Kiara Advani

Kiara starred in Netflix‘s Guilty—a thriller about sexual assault, produced by Karan Johar‘s Dharma Productions. The actress actually seems to have an impressive line-up of upcoming films; Shershaah with rumoured BF and co-star Sidharth Malhotra. She will also be seen opposite Akshay Kumar in Laxmmi Bomb—a remake of a Tamil film Muni 2: Kanchana. Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 with Kartik Aaryan and Indoo Ki Jawani—a coming-of-age film co-starring Aditya Seal.

Kiara who recently celebrated her birthday stepped out in a bright, aqua green, midi-dress. The dress featured a tie-up detail on the straps and is the perfect, summer dress to be hitting a beach in. A plunging but modest neckline with a button-up front, the dress was also tiered in nature. She accessorised her look with matching, embellished, beach sandals and her trusty DIOR black and white houndstooth embroidery book tote. And of course, Kiara’s gorgeous floral print face mask that stands out even more against the poppy colour of her cotton dress. Ugh, her look totally makes me miss the summer that never was.

Kiara Advani and Varun Dhawan

Varun Dhawan

For Varun, on the work front, he will be seen next in David Dhawan’s Coolie No. 1 with Sara Ali Khan. The movie was supposed to hit the theatres this May 1st but had to be pushed indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown. He was last seen with Shraddha Kapoor in the dance film, Street Dancer 3D. Varun will also be soon seen playing the role of military officer Arun Khetarpal.

Varun obviously sported quarantine hair and it is totally unexpected to see him in a man bun. I’m still unsure about how well it suits him though, thoughts? He, however, looked dapper in a denim jacket with camo-print detail on the sleeves, that really amped up the vibe of his look. He paired it with a V-neck, black tee and light blue, ripped jeans. His black and brown shoes seemed weather-appropriate but definitely not a great match to his otherwise cool look. Of course, the actor wore a mask—a black one from Reebok.

Huma Qureshi And Arjun Kapoor School Us On How To Wear Tie-Dye

href=”author/nelly-wadia”>Nelly Wadia , 06 Aug 2020Arjun Kapoor and Huma Qureshi in tie-dye sweatshirts

Let me be the first to say, how grateful I am for lockdown easing up because of which we see a few celebrities stepping out. Now make sure you observe how careful they are as they step out and always have on protective gear. Face masks need to be your only accessory at this point. While Arjun Kapoor seems to be headed somewhere in Mumbai, Huma Qureshi is jetting off to London to begin shooting for Bell Bottom her upcoming movie with Akshay Kumar and Vaani Kapoor. This film seems to be the first Indian film to be shot abroad during the lockdown. Also, make sure to notice how Arjun and Huma are twinning in their tie-dye sweatshirt proving that this trend is here to stay, summer or no summer.

Scroll below to see these 2 stars in their tie-dye sweatshirts:Arjun Kapoor

Take a cue from Arjun Kapoor if you’re interested in using colour to spruce up your day-to-day wear. I really love his tie-dye sweatshirt with light blue, light yellow, pink and orange colour that he paired with black, knee-length shorts. It really makes for a striking background to the black swirly effect from the dyeing patterns. He accessorised his look with a black cap because ain’t nobody wants to walk out of their houses voluntarily with quarantine hair. Do you get my drift because I see you sitting there staring at your screen with your hair in that messy bun? He wears a pair of black sunglasses with a blue tint, the round frames really enhance his face. His trusty black, Apple watch as a companion to keep fit during quarantine, of course.

However, the highlight of this look quite frankly is those Off-White Black Off Stamp Slides. Gents, flip-flops always look like you’re lazy and that you’re no interested in your upkeep but a pair of slides say otherwise. So make sure you opt for a sleek pair like Arjun has to make your outfit stand out.

Huma Qureshi

Huma Qureshi was seen at Mumbai airport donning a blue and yellow sweatshirt. I have always enjoyed this combination because there’s something airy and reminiscent of summer about it. She paired her flight appropriate sweatshirt with a pair of white jeans. The actress accessorised her look with the perfect travel companion for a long haul flight—a white Love Moschino Roma Tote bag. And of course, a pair of white sneakers. An oversized tote will carry your essentials and the comfy shoes to help traverse through long lines at the airport. She’s been sporting her natural curls lately and they really make for a fun addition to all her looks.

‘There Is A Newfound Excitement To Be Back On Set’ — Akshay Kumar On Resuming Work

href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 04 Aug 2020Akshay Kumar (Source: Instagram | @akshaykumar)

After almost 4 months in lockdown, the restrictions on movement and usual business is slowly coming back to normal in phases. One of the few actors who stepped out for work during this time has been Akshay Kumar. The Khiladi Kumar stepped out to shoot a coronavirus awareness ad for the government. And now, he is all set to resume shoot for his films, too. Of course, with all the necessary precautions and safety protocols in place.

In an interview with Hindustan Times, the actor opened up about resuming work on his upcoming films — Bell Bottom and Atrangi Re. He is all set to fly to the UK this month for Bell Bottom’s shoot, with the cast and crew consisting of Vaani Kapoor, Lara Dutta and Huma Qureshi among others. In October, he will shoot for Aanand L Rai‘s Atrangi Re alongside Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush. When asked about whether he ever felt afraid about stepping out during these times, Akshay said he sure was.

But he goes on to say:

For how long can you live in fear? Initially, when the pandemic started, very little was known about the virus – the way it affects a person. So, there was a lot of fear. Now, with time, we know more and also that it’s possible to beat it if we’ve a good immune system. Hence, I decided to get back to work taking all the precautions, not just for me but the entire unit.

Talking about being back on set after so long, Akshay adds:

I, for one, was itching to get back to work as soon as it was permitted, and possible. I don’t think I’ve stayed away from the camera for so long and now, there’s a newfound excitement to be back on set.

On Rakhi yesterday, Akshay also announced his next film titled Raksha Bandhan, dedicated to his sister Alka Hiranandani. He is getting her to debut as a producer with this film and he says he couldn’t have gotten her a better Rakshabandhan gift as “it will be there forever on celluloid“.

I am super excited for that film and I sure cannot wait to watch Akshay back on screen very soon!

Akshay Kumar Equips Mumbai Police With Fitness Health Trackers

href=”author/avya-sharma”>Avya Sharma , 03 Aug 2020Akshay Kumar

Our B-town celebrities are doing in their best capacity to help people during these trying times. Akshay Kumar was one of the celebrities to donate a whopping amount of 25 crores to the PM Relief Fund. Not only this, but he had also helped the Mumbai Police with sanitizers and face masks so that they can deal with the coronavirus better. And now, the actor has equipped the Mumbai Police with a health tracking device. It gives a constant reading of blood pressure, oxygen and body temperature. Akshay had helped the Nashik Police with the same earlier.

Maharashtra Cabinet Minister Aditya Thackeray applauded the actor by taking to his Twitter handle. He said that he and Akshay also spoke about equipping the trackers to Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), who has also been working tirelessly towards fighting the virus.

Aditya Thackeray’s tweet read—

Earlier today, @akshaykumar ji handed over fitness- health tracking devices to @MumbaiPolice. It gives a constant reading of oxygen, body temp and heart rate, helpful in Covid battle. Last month, Akshay ji gave it to @nashikpolice.

He further added that—

Akshay ji has always supported our nation’s armed forces, police in various states. I’m thankful to him for his concern for our covid warriors and we also discussed about giving some of these trackers to the @mybmc for use.

6 Actors Who Are All Set To Play Members Of The Armed Forces In Their Upcoming Films

href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 16 Jul 2020

Ajay Devgn, Janhvi Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra (Source: Instagram | @ajaydevgn, @janhvikapoor, @sidmalhotra)

If there is one film my brother and I loved as kids, it had to be Lakshya. We would have watched it a thousand times. I absolutely loved Hrithik Roshan in it, and there’s something about how that film evokes such love for our nation and for the undying spirit of the army men like nothing else. After Hrithik, the other person whom I loved in the role of an army man was Vicky Kaushal in Uri: The Surgical Strike. Now, that was another favourite film that just got my ‘josh‘ up, every time I watched it!

Interestingly, the coming year, we’re going to get a chance to see a lot of actor’s play the role of the fearless and selfless Army men (and women!). From Sidharth Malhotra to Janhvi Kapoor and Akshay Kumar, these actors are set to tell the stories of the brave-hearts who sacrificed their all and fought valiantly for our country.

Here are all the actors who are going to feature as members of the Armed Forces in their upcoming films:Sidharth Malhotra

These B-Town Babes Prove That Wearing A Mask Is Stylish & Important

href=”author/nelly-wadia”>Nelly Wadia , 15 Jul 2020

Kareena Kapoor Khan and Nushrratt Bharuccha

From all the news that we constantly consume I’ve noticed that a lot of people are refusing to wear masks. I’m not sure what the need to rebel against the idea is because they are designed to protect you. This disease could kill you or worse cripple you for the rest of your life. We’re a little beyond flattening the curve and now is the time to band together and stay home. Take time to slow down and enjoy this quarantine. And if you absolutely must step out then wearing a face mask is a must. Take a look at how Bollywood diligently wears a mask and also looks stylish while doing so. In case you were worried that wearing a mask would put a dampener on the way you dress. You couldn’t be more wrong because these B-town bombshells are nailing their masks with every look they sport.

Take a look at how these Bollywood celebrities have styled their mask:1) Kareena Kapoor Khan

Kareena Kapoor Khan is a cool cat, no matter what she wears she just always looks turnt up. Just a basic, black, V-neck tee with a pair of beige joggers. She accessorised her look with a pair of black slides with gold, chain-link detailing her trusty animal print sunglasses.

Lockdown Style Tip: The best way to up the ante of an outfit during the day time is to wear oversized sunglasses. Also, a good way to conceal them puffy eyes.

2) Vaani Kapoor

Vaani Kapoor seems to be prepping for her next movie called Bell Bottom with Akshay Kumar. Is it a coincidence that she was also spotted wearing bell-bottom jeans recently? I love me a nice pair of blue denim that fits like a dream. She paired her jeans with a long-sleeve, grey crop top with a deep V-neck. She accessorised her look with a pair of white sneakers and a Balenciaga Graffiti Papier A6 Zip Around black shoulder strap bag.

Lockdown Style Tip: Wear high-waist bell-bottom jeans to elongate your legs. To elevate a basic look, style your outfit with a funky bag. It could also just add a pop of colour to drown out a gloomy day.

Vaani Kapoor

3) Disha Patani

Disha Patani steps out to the vet in a pair of light blue skinny jeans that she paired effortlessly a beige, spaghetti tank top. She accessorised her look with a dainty gold necklace, an animal print bum bag and printed, red, chuck-taylors. She clipped her hair back and wore a pretty floral mask.

Lockdown Style Tip: Pair a light in tones look with a pop of colour with your shoes. You could also carry a bag with a print as Disha has.

4) Patralekha

Love Patralekha’s vibrant work-out look. She wore a hot-pink tee that she knotted on the side with a purple sports bra. She, however, off-set her look with black and white shorts and neon, green sneakers. I thought her colour pairing was an interesting choice. She finished out her look with oversized black, square sunglasses.

Lockdown Style Tip: Wear bright coloured work-out wear to add a happy disposition to your look

5) Nushrratt Bharuccha

Totally digging Nushrratt’s monochromatic, ecrú salwar suit. The petal neckline and subtle mirror work on the front of the kurta make it the perfect look to sport in the day. The palazzo pants and her aviator-style glasses make the look quite cool. What’s interesting about this kurta is the tie detailing that goes down the sides and ends with tassel detailing. Love the addition of the tan sling bag.

Lockdown Style Tip: Pair your monochrome salwar suit with a bright coloured face mask for an interesting look. You can add pops of colour to your look by experimenting with colours in the same colour family of your outfit.

6) Nimrat Kaur

Nimrat’s denim dungarees are just adorable and they fit her like a glove. She paired her denim overalls with a black and white, Bretton stripe long-sleeved top. She accessorised her look with white sneakers and a black, quilted sling bag.

Lockdown Style Tip: You want your denim dungarees to be loose at the chest but fitted at the waist and hip. Pair your look with a fitted top to create a seamless finish.

Nimrat Kaur

7) Huma Qureshi

Want to nail an all-black look? Pull a leaf out of Huma’s stylebook. She wears a slub black tee, with a black sports bra and high-waist black tights. Style your gym look with a black, Gucci bum bag and a pair of slip-on sneakers. Braid your hair to keep all the hair away from your face.

Lockdown Style Tip: Pair your all-black look with black accessories to elevate the sharpness of your look.

Huma Qureshi in a black mask

8) Malaika Arora

Malaika Arora wears a fawn, kimono dress. This flirty and beachy dress features a V-neck dress with tiny white pom-pom along the neckline. The over-sized sleeves feature crochet detailing and the dress has tiny white floral motifs spread out all throughout. She accessorized her look with a white sling bag with white and blue sneakers.

Lockdown Style Tip: Wear a beachy dress and match the accessories to the base tones on the outfit as Malaika has.

As earlier reports suggested the movie is going to be shot in the UK and the entire cast will be flying to the UK for the same. Of course, the makers are making sure to take all the safety precautions required.

The film is said to be an espionage thriller and will be set in the 1980s. The film is about India’s forgotten heroes. A few days ago, Vaani Kapoor had taken to Instagram to let the world know that she will be teaming up with Akshay for the first time and she was extremely thrilled about it.

Actor Akshay Kumar has been extending his full support in all ways during these trying times. From donating a whopping amount of rupees 25 crores towards the PM Relief Fund, an additional Rs 2 crore to the Mumbai Police Foundation to contributing rupees 45 lakh to the Cine & TV Artistes Association (CINTAA), the actor has outdone himself. Now, he has extended financial aid to actress Nupur Alankar. Recently actor Renuka Shahane had tweeted that her friend Nupur is seeking financial help. Nupur had lost her savings in the PMC Bank crash of 2019 and had to look after her ailing mother.

Have a look at the tweet:

What can I say about the kindness of all who've helped my friend Nupur through this horrible time brought about by #PMCBankCrisis combined with her mother's ill health & lockdown in our industry. Today I want to appreciate all of you & appeal to not contribute any further. 1/7

The actress said:

An angel from our film industry has helped Nupur with a staggering amount that will help Nupur’s mother get the best possible treatment. This angel has already helped so many actors, workers from the film industry without any expectation of even a thank you in return.

Renuka remembering how Khiladi Kumar helped Nupur, said—

He read about my FB post asking for help on Twitter. He called Ranaji for details about what I had shared. He asked how much Nupur needed. I told him the amount she had asked for and he told me that it will be done. And it was & topped up with more.

She also added that Akshay is a person “who will stand by someone in need, someone who they have never met or worked with”.

That’s indeed a very kind and thoughtful gesture by Akshay Kumar!

Akshay Kumar To Start Shooting For Bell Bottom Soon

Akshay Kumar was one of the first and in fact, the only actor who shot for a Public Service ad on spreading awareness on coronavirus during the lockdown in Mumbai. Of course, he did the same only after attaining every possible permission and taking care of all the safety precautions. And now, if reports around the internet are to be believed, it turns out the actor will soon start shooting for his next movie, Bell Bottom which is touted as a spy-thriller based on true events. Akshay had announced the project towards the end of 2019 itself. As the lockdowns around the nation are easing up, the entertainment world is also planning to go back to shooting. While full-fledged shooting might still take a while, Akshay is said to start shooting this project rather quickly. In fact, the entire film is said to be shot in Scotland.

A report in Bollywood Hungama suggested that the filmmakers and Akshay were planning to start shooting next month and most of the shoot will be done abroad, predominantly Scotland. Talking about the budget going overboard with an overseas location, the source said that with the economic slowdown around the world, films that are being shot aborad can seek assistance in terms of permissions and rebates in return for film promotions. Although permissions for the shoot have been acquired strict guidelines have been laid down to ensure everyone’s safety. Apparently, the location of Scotland will play an integral part in the plot. As for the story, nothing can be said except that it is set in the 80s.

The movie is directed by Ranjit M Tewari and produced by Jacky Bhagnani, Vashu Bhagnani, Nikkhil Advani,  Deepshikha Deshmukh, Monisha Advani, and Madhu Bhojwani.
