There is seldom a week in Bollywood when some celeb couple or the other doesn’t keep us on our toes guessing about their relationship status. This time it was Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma and cricket star Virat Kohli. Reports of the two getting married in December had fans in frenzy. In fact, there were some reports that went a step ahead sketching an entire itinerary of where the two plan to tie the knot and where they plan to go on their honeymoon. However, the two released a statement quashing all rumours.Also Read - Bigg Boss 15 Weekend Ka Vaar: Angry Salman Khan Calls Karan Kundrra 'Ishq Mein Nikamma', Tejasswi Interrupts

Talking about another glamorous action thriller, the first look poster of Saaho starring Prabhas also released this week, on his 38th birthday on October 23. His face was covered and we could only see his eyes. Fans are excited and waiting to see another poster, which reveals more about the look and feel of the film.
Apart from these posters, the week also saw two song releases. The Ghoomar song from Padmavati and Ittefaq Se from Ittefaq took internet by storm. Ghoomar was visually appealing like all Sanjay Leela Bhansali numbers with Deepika Padukone looking ethereal as Rani Padmini and Shahid Kapoor looking every bit royal as Maharawal Ratan Singh. We also saw the glimpse of Rani Nagmati, Maharawal’s first wife, played by actress Anupriya Goenka in the song.
Ittefaq Se song starring Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha is a reprised version of Raat Baaki from Namak Halal (1982). While we have seen a lot of remixes this year, this one from Ittefaq is definitely a better version. It starts with a hauntingly melodious tune setting the tone of the mysterious story that the film promises and then the tempo goes up to involve you into the narrative.
Apart from these songs, we also heard about the new installment of Housefull 4. Sajid Nadiadwala announced the film on Friday with a Diwali 2019 release date. While the cast is still being finalized, bets are high on Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh being a part of the film since they have been associated with the franchise since its inception. Sajid Khan is touted to direct this one as well.
A week in Bollywood without the mention of star kids is incomplete. This week was in fact ruled by Bollywood babies, old and new. Esha Deol and husband Bharat Thaktani announced the birth of their baby girl on Monday. They have named her Radhya. Actress Asin, who got married earlier this year, also delivered a baby girl and it was announced in style by her friend and superstar Akshay Kumar, taking media and fans by surprise. India.com also shared an exclusive picture of Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu’s daughter Inaaya Naumi from their Diwali bash. It was their daughter’s first Diwali and the couple was beaming with joy.
Amid all these baby pictures that were turning our heart into mush, the news of director, producer and screenwriter Ram Mukerji’s demise was heartbreaking. But what was heartening to see is that the entire film industry turned up at the prayer meet held by his daughter Rani Mukerji. Right from Amitabh Bachchan and family to Aamir Khan and wife Kiran Rao and Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Saif Ali Khan among others attended the meet. That was quite a week in Bollywood. Let’s wait and watch what the next week has in store for us.
