Last week, Deepika Padukone’s look as Rani Padmavati created frenzy amongst fans. This week started with a similar sentiment with Shahid Kapoor’s Maharawal Ratan Singh being unveiled. Tow posters with the actor in the Rajputana king avatar were revealed on Monday morning, taking the excitement for the film to an all new high. While the posters left fans impressed, India.com got an exclusive reaction from Shahid’s wife Mira Rajput. It was sweet and something that all fans would agree to. Read it here. And now, all eyes are set to see what Ranveer Singh’s Allaudin Khilji has in store for us. Can expect it next week!
Another news that had Bollywood fans in a celebratory news came from Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu, who became parents to a baby girl on Friday. In April this year, India.com had informed fans that it will be a September baby for Soha and Kunal and it is such a auspicious coincidence that the little daughter chose to came into the star couple’s life on the ninth day of Navratri and on a Friday (an occasion celebrated by both Hindus and Muslims). And now, we all are waiting for the first pictures to come in.
But while there may be still some time before we see the baby’s pictures, there’s another that was going viral this week. Dimple Kapadia and Sunny Deol were spotted in London, at a bus stop, and a fan clicked their pictures and posted it on the internet. A video followed and raked up a storm on social media. The most bizarre part about this was when Dimple’s daughter and son-in-law Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar were trolled for this.
Apart from these leaked pictures, some official pictures and videos of some upcoming films were also released this week. Golmaal Again, which hits screens this Diwali, came out with its first song – Maine Tujhko Dekha – which is a reprised version of the song Neend Churaai Meri from Ajay Devgn – Aamir Khan’s Ishq (1997). The song stars all the men from the Golmaal gang and the new female lead – Parineeti Chopra in a breezy setting. It will be hard to not fall in love with this 90s hit, once again.
This week we also heard some great news about Hrithik Roshan’s next project with the current dancing and action sensation – Tiger Shroff. While speculations had been rife about HR’s next project, with no official news since his film Kaabil released earlier this year, this news came as a pleasant surprise to all his fans. The YRF film will be directed by Siddharth Anand and release on 25th January 2019. This announcement by the production house was followed by a twitter banter between Hrithik and Tiger.
It would surely be a treat to watch two of the most good looking, impeccable dancers share screen space. Aren’t you excited about a drool affair?
Talking about future projects, Ranveer Singh’s film ’83 that brings alive the 1983 World Cup was officially announced this week. The actor, who will be seen as Allaudin Khilji in December 1 release Padmavati, will play the role of cricketer Kapil Dev in ’83. That’s some very interesting casting and knowing Ranveer, he will play the part with conviction. We are ready to get awed!
But while all these are about what the upcoming year holds for us, let’s talk about this week’s Bollywood release – Judwaa 2. The film starring Varun Dhawan as twin brothers is a reboot of Salman Khan’s 1997 film Judwaa. While the film is receiving love from fans all across, it has got a mixed review from critics. Personally, I was left disappointed with the film – read my review here – as someone who has watched and enjoyed the original Judwaa as Salman Khan fan and also as someone who feels Varun Dhawan is one of the most talented actors from the younger generation. However, the film has opened to a decent occupancy and the upcoming three day weekend will only see the numbers soar.
But work life apart, we got our hands on some really shocking information involving Varun Dhawan. Word around town says that contrary to reports that Alia Bhatt’s concern about Sidharth Malhotra’s closeness with A Gentleman co-star Jacqueline Fernandez led to their breakup, it was actually the other way around. In fact, Alia also had a twitter exchange with Jackie about the latter’s performance in Judwaa 2. Check below.
So it seems like, it was Sidharth who was miffed with Alia Bhatt for her professional and personal bond with Varun. Sid and Varun have been sharing a cold vibe since sometime and professional rivalry is the reason. You can read exclusive details here.
So cinephiles, that was pretty much an interesting week in Bollywood. In the upcoming week, we are going to keep a close eye on any information related to Padmavati, Secret Superstar, Golmaal Again, Tiger Zinda Hai apart from stalking your favourite Bollywood stars offline and online to bring you the quickest and exclusive updates. So stay tuned.
