Amitabh Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar, Wazir ‘Wazir’, which has been directed by Bejoy Nambiar of ‘Shaitan’ fame, also stars Amitabh Bachchan, besides Farhan Akhtar.

Actor-director Farhan Akhtar has completed filming Bejoy Nambiar’s ‘Wazir’, which also stars megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

The 41-year-old ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ star recently returned from Srinagar, Kashmir, where he was shooting the last schedule of the upcoming drama.

“Shoot on Wazir complete. Another chapter of my work on the film ends. Thank you @nambiarbejoy & crew… Was a fun ride,” Farhan posted on twitter.

Aditi Rao Hydari plays the female lead in the film, which has been produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Aquib Khan and Rajkumar Hirani.

‘Wazir’ went on floors in September last year.


Ranvir Shorey did ‘Blue Mountains’ for son Haroon
Ranvir Shorey married his longtime ladylove Bollywood actress Konkana Sen Sharma in 2010 and Haroon was born the same year. Ranvir Shorey married his longtime ladylove Bollywood actress Konkana Sen Sharma in 2010 and Haroon was born the same year.

Director Suman Ganguly says Ranvir Shorey, who plays a prominent part in “Blue Mountains”, agreed to the movie for his son Haroon.

Ranvir married his longtime ladylove Bollywood actress Konkana Sen Sharma in 2010 and Haroon was born the same year.

“When I narrated the script to Ranvir, he got very emotional and told me, ‘Suman-da, I will do this film for my son Haroon and for the dreams he will have and fully support him in pursuing them,” Suman told IANS.

“Ranvir has elevated the whole presence of the film to a different level. His precision and detailing shaped ‘Blue Mountains’,” he added.

“Blue Mountains” deals with issues that are relevant and very crucial for today’s adolescents and their parents. It also highlights the importance of developing emotional stamina during the teenage years and emphasises on parenting styles and family values.

Talking about the film, Ganguly said: “My film deals with the life of a teenager and how a mother forces her own aspirations on her son which emotionally breaks him.”

Ranvir plays the protagonist’s father, who helps his son regain confidence.

The first look of the film has already released in Cannes. Now “Blue Mountains” is expected to tour some international film festivals before being released in India during summer.

The film also features Gracy Singh, Rajpal Yadav, Arif Zakaria and Mahesh Thakur.


Patna High Court lifts stay on release of ‘Dirty Politics’
dirty politics, mallika sherawat K C Bokadia, who arrived here from Mumbai, said that he was thankful to the court that it lifted the order following his written submission.

A day after it stayed the release of Bollywood film “Dirty Politics” in cinema halls, the Patna High Court Wednesday lifted the order, a government lawyer said.

After K.C. Bokadia, the director and producer of the film, submitted a written petition informing the court that there was no objectionable scene in the movie and that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has given it a certificate without a cut, a division bench of the court lifted its earlier order, Anil Kumar Sinha, who is Bokadia’s lawyer, told media here.

Bokadia, who arrived here from Mumbai, said that he was thankful to the court that it lifted the order following his written submission.

“I have informed the court that my film has no objectionable scenes,” Bokadia said.

Sinha said that after the court lifted its earlier order, the film would be released as scheduled on Friday.

The movie features actress Mallika Sherawat.


Aamir Khan defends his reaction on AIB Roast, says ‘you can’t go around attacking anyone you feel like’
aib, aib roast, aamir khan, aib knockout, ranveer singh, karan johar Aamir Khan’s reaction on AIB sparked off yet another controversy with criticism arising not only from the industry colleagues, but also from stand up comics like Russell Peters who even asked Aamir to “shut up”.

It’s time a filmmaker from the industry takes up the AIB Roast controversy as the plot and builds his movie around it, as the issue has gradually burgeoned into a massive one. Stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Varun Dhawan, Anushka Sharma and Mahesh Bhatt among others have constantly been questioned over the issue and myriad views, ranging from total support to the trio – Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Karan Johar – to absolute ignorance of the happenings have emerged.

Aamir Khan, for one, was totally against of what happened and had even gone ahead to call the AIB knockout event “violent”. He said though he hasn’t seen the entire ‘roast’ but he was very ‘disappointed’ with whatever clips he had seen.

Aamir’s reaction sparked off yet another controversy with criticism arising not only from the industry colleagues, but also from stand up comics like Russell Peters who even asked Aamir to “shut up”. Twitteratti also slammed him as a “hypocrite” who produces adult comedies like ‘Delhi Belly’ but can’t stand expletives in a comedy show.

Also read – Aamir Khan criticised for ‘double standards’ on ‘AIB Roast': Reminded of ‘Delhi Belly’, asked to be a responsible celebrity

The superstar has finally broken his silence and explained the reasons behind his “double standard”, as called by others, reaction.

In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, when asked about his reaction on AIB Roast and what followed, Aamir said, “I respect everyone’s opinion. For me freedom of speech and expression is an important right and should be protected at all costs. But I also feel that freedom comes with responsibility which should be self-exercised. It’s unfortunate that caught between the rightwing fascists and the ‘no-holdsbarred’ faction, the moderates are in danger of losing their voice. I’m aware that if you sign up for the Roast, you sign up to insult each other. But, in this case, even those who hadn’t signed up were being targeted, like Farida Jalal, Reema Lagoo and a beautiful, young girl I love dearly.

The young girl whom I’ve known since she was a kid, was the butt of racist and sexist jokes. She did not even know that a live audience was watching this and couldn’t protect herself. That is unfair! This is what I meant when I described the show as “violent”. Films which depict violence are fictional but this young girl is real. So my reaction was more emotional than moralistic.

I wasn’t objecting to the use of expletives or adult jokes. If two consenting adults wish to insult each other, that’s their problem. But you can’t go around attacking anyone you feel like. That is no different from the physical violence we see around us and object to. And when someone uses the words “shut up”, it makes me believe that these people are certainly not a part of the group that is for freedom of speech.”

The young girl Aamir Khan has referred to in this excerpt is Salman Khan’s kid sister Arpita Khan, who is said to be very close to Aamir and his family. Reportedly, Arjun Kapoor was in a relationship with Arpita before making it big in Bollywood and this was made fun of in the show. Arpita’s skin colour and looks were apparently targeted.

This bit was, however, removed from the version that was edited for Youtube.

Remains to be seen now, whether this reaction on the erstwhile reaction creates another controversy or not. It’s time, however, the issue just died.


Anupam Kher is still a ‘mumma’s boy’
anupam kher Anupam Kher took to Twitter to post a lovely moment he shared with his mother recently.

Anupam Kher might have stumped you with his acting chops many a time and he is sure to bowl you over once again; this time with sheer cuteness.

The veteran actor took to Twitter to post a lovely moment he shared with his mother recently.

Apparently, Anupam Kher’s mother wanted to buy him a shirt and took him to shop around. And he, being an obedient son, relived his childhood memory, as the last time they went for shopping was when Kher was 14.

Not only does this present Anupam Kher’s love for his mother, but also proves the fact that he was, is and always be the quintessential ‘mumma’s boy’. Cute, to say the least.


Karan Singh Grover to be paired opposite Zarine Khan in ‘Hate Story 3′
karan singh grover, hate story 3 After roping in TV actor Jay Bhanushali for the second edition of ‘Hate Story’, the makers have zeroed in on another small screen star Karan Singh Grover for the next edition.

After roping in TV actor Jay Bhanushali for the second edition of ‘Hate Story’, the makers have zeroed in on another small screen star Karan Singh Grover for the next edition.

Rumour has it that the actor, who made his Bollywood debut with the 2014 release ‘Alone’ opposite Bipasha Basu, is all set to feature in ‘Hate Story 3′, to be directed by Nikhil Pandya. Karan is likely to be paired opposite Zarine Khan, who made her debut in Salman Khan’s ‘Veer’ few years back and had gone missing since then.

Sharman Joshi is also roped in as the third wheel in the ‘hate story’, which is expected to be yet again bold in content.

According to reports, since the previous two movies also had two male leads (in the first, it was Nikhil Dwivedi and Gulshan Devaiah while the second featured Jay Bhanushali and Sushant Singh), this time, it’s going to be Karan Singh Grover and Sharman Joshi with Zarine Khan as the solo leading lady.


Sneak peek at Alia Bhatt’s ‘second’ home
alia bhatt Alia Bhatt, who like most actors spends majority of time in her vanity van gave it a make-over.

‘Student of The Year’ actress Alia Bhatt has a reason to be happy these days. The actress, who like most actors spends majority of time in her vanity van gave it a make-over.

(Read: Alia Bhatt to transform into a Hockey player for ‘Udta Punjab’)

Alia Bhatt, who is more than happy with her vanity’s transformation, thanked Amrita Mahal who designed it for her. Amrita was the Production Designer for movies ‘2 States’, ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’ and ‘Student Of The Year’.

alia bhatt, alia bhatt vanity van

Doing back-to-back movies and spending most of her time in her vanity, the actress shared a picture of it on Instagram, calling it her second home. Alia wrote, “My second home, my vanity van !!! Thank you @amritamahalnakai for transforming my van !! I love you to the stars and back ;) #wohooo #vansweetvan.”

Bright and beautiful – the vanity has lights all over the ceiling and walls. Colorful cushions, a bed side lamp, table and a chair is what her vanity consists. And the off-white curtain gives it a perfect look. The grafitti there is something that cannot go unnoticed.

A cozy and comfortable vanity, we think this is what keeps the actress going.


I play idolised version of Arvind Kejriwal in ‘Dirty Politics': Naseeruddin Shah
Like Arvind Kejriwal, Naseeruddin Shah's character in "Dirty Politics" is a "political activist and always believes in taking action against wrong doings". Like Arvind Kejriwal, Naseeruddin Shah’s character in “Dirty Politics” is a “political activist and always believes in taking action against wrong doings”.

Veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah, who will be seen in K.C. Bokadia’s “Dirty Politics”, says his character in the film is somewhat like Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

“I play an idolised version of Delhi’s Chief Minister (Arvind Kejriwal)…like him, this character also stands for right things and succeeds thereafter,” the actor said here Tuesday during a press conference to promote the film.

Kejriwal, who has become Delhi’s chief minister for the second time, was a team member of Anna Hazare’s anti-corruption movement. He then took the political route and formed the Aam Aadmi Party. He first became the chief minister after the 2013 Delhi assembly polls but stepped down after 49 days. He made a historic comeback in the assembly polls this year.

Like Kejriwal, Naseeruddin’s character in “Dirty Politics” is a “political activist and always believes in taking action against wrong doings”.

“Somewhere he is a witness of everything that happens in the story and at last he is the one who decides to take the positive action,” he added.

“Dirty Politics” also features Mallika Sherawat, Jackky Shroff, Anupam Kher, Ashutosh Rana and Om Puri in key roles.

HBO in talks with Apple to launch video streaming service - report

Actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau arrives at the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles(Reuters) - HBO is in talks with Apple Inc to be its launch partner for the highly anticipated HBO Now video streaming service, according to a report in Wednesday's International Business Times. The service is expected to launch next month, timed to the season premier of HBO's blockbuster series "Game of Thrones," according to the report, which cited sources familiar with the matter. "We know there’s great anticipation around our standalone streaming service," an HBO spokesman said in a statement. Time Warner , which owns the HBO pay-TV service, announced the video streaming service in October in order to hold onto or attract subscribers who are ditching pricey cable television subscriptions.



U.S. may review 1959 airplane crash that killed Buddy Holly

Musician Buddy Holly posthumously receives a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame(Reuters) - U.S. transportation safety investigators said on Wednesday they are reviewing a request to reopen a probe into the 1959 airplane crash that killed musicians Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, J.P. Richardson, better known as "The Big Bopper," and their pilot. The original investigation 56 years ago conducted by the Civil Aeronautics Board blamed the crash on the pilot's decision to embark on an instrument-guided flight he was not certified for and, secondarily, on poor weather briefing. The NTSB received a request recently from pilot L.J. Coon to reconsider the decision, the Mason City Globe Gazette reported. "We are reviewing the petition to reconsider the Buddy Holly crash, based on criteria in our regs," the National Transportation Safety Board said.



New York's Lincoln Center to rename concert hall for David Geffen

David Geffen is honored at the Pre-Grammy Gala & Salute to Industry Icons with Clive Davis in Beverly Hills, CaliforniaBy Ellen Wulfhorst NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York's Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts will rename its Avery Fisher Hall for music mogul David Geffen, who has made a $100 million gift to help with its renovation, officials said on Wednesday. Large-scale renovation of the concert hall, home to the New York Philharmonic, is due to begin in 2019 at a cost of about $500 million, Lincoln Center said. It will be named David Geffen Hall in September at the start of the Philharmonic's 2015-16 season. "We are extremely grateful that David has chosen to focus his generosity on the transformation of this venerable concert hall for a new era,” Katherine Farley, chairwoman of Lincoln Center, said in a statement.

India's censor blocks 'Fifty Shades of Grey' from cinemas

Director of the film Taylor-Johnson, cast members Dornan, Johnson and author James arrive for the British premiere of the movie 'Fifty Shades of Grey' in LondonBy Shilpa Jamkhandikar MUMBAI (Reuters) - Government censors have said they will not allow the big-screen adaptation of erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" to be shown in cinemas, a decision most had anticipated in the largely conservative country. The chief executive of the Central Board of Film Certification, Shravan Kumar, declined to say why the panel refused to approve the film adaptation, but said Universal Pictures, the Comcast Corp unit that released the film, could appeal the decision. A Universal Pictures source familiar with the review process said the board had objected to some of the film's dialogue, even after the studio made voluntary edits to the film to tone down its sex scenes and removed all nudity. The film's distributor, Comcast Corp is also not pursuing a theatrical release in China, the world's second-largest film market, where the censors tend to ban sexually explicit films.
