23 July 2014 1:50 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Amidst widespread speculation that other superstars Shah Rukh Khan or Akshay Kumar may replace Salman Khan as the host of Bigg Boss Season 8 on Colors, recently Salman himself gave a statement to the media in Mumbai. “If I don’t host, then I think Shah Rukh Khan would be a good host,” he said during the launch of the song ‘Devi’l for his upcoming film Kick.

But Bollywood PR guru Dale Bhagwagar, who has handled public relations for the maximum number of Bigg Boss contestants like Rakhi Sawant, Kashmera Shah, Sambhavna Seth, Sherlyn Chopra, Pooja Misrra, Diana Hayden, Shamita Shetty, Ashmit Patel, Vindu Dara Singh, Zulfi Syed, Salil Ankola, Amar Upadhyay and Anita Advani, feels Salman Khan should return.

Deepika juggling between Big B and Ranbir

22 July 2014 3:41 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

It almost looked like Deepika Padukone would have to drop out of Shoojit Sircar's Piku, also starring Amitabh Bachchan. According to sources, the dates in August that Shoojit Sircar had finalized clashed with Deepika's lengthy schedule for Imtiaz Ali's Tamasha. Says the source, "Because of the extended time frame for Anurag Kashyap's Bombay Velvet, Ranbir has been pushing ahead his other under-production films, namely Anurag Basu's Jagga Jasoos and Imtiaz Ali's Tamasha. Finally he found time to begin shooting for Imtiaz Ali's film in August. Deepika had no choice but to adjust her dates accordingly. In the process, she almost said no to Shoojit who, poor guy, has been facing heroine problems on Piku from the start." Shoojit apparently insisted on Deepika's presence in his film. Resultantly, for the first time in her career Deepika would be shooting for two films simultaneously. Deepika confirms »

How can anyone forget the legendary Amitabh Bachchan's baritone voice stating 'Do Boond Zindagi Ke', in the polio eradication campaign by the Government of India, a few years ago.

Expressing his happiness on this occasion, Big B tweeted, "Polio eradicated from India... an 8 year campaign with the Unicef ambassadorship! Feel such accomplishment and joy!".

Nisha Pahuja on why she couldn’t have guessed the response to “The World Before Her”

20 July 2014 9:12 PM, PDT | DearCinema.com | See recent DearCinema.com news »

Nisha Pahuja

A few days ago, on my way back to the suburbs from South Mumbai, I witnessed the worst pollution I’ve seen in India.  Just below the Bandra flyover some work had shrouded the area in a dense, chemical fog.  Shadowy people emerged ghost-like, cars were swallowed whole and the moment was as beautiful as it was haunting.

I asked my driver to let me out. I wasn’t sure what I was looking for, all I had was my iphone and not much in the way of skill — but there was something about that scene I wanted to capture and so I sat on a ledge and waited.

The fumes were oppressive and the heat stifling; but both my mind and body were alert and filled with the hope of witnessing and capturing some kind of a transcendent moment. That moment never came.  Or if it did, »

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is set to kick-start this Eid season with the forthcoming action romantic-comedy film Kick, releasing on 25th July 2014 through Utv Motion Pictures. Billed as an awesome, roller-coaster ride of action, intrigue, suspense and romance, Salman Khan leads an impressive ensemble cast in this high-octane, action rom-com.

Salman Khan plays the character of Devil, an adrenaline junkie who is addicted to risk, be it in his job or in his personal life. His many misguided and miscreant acts culminate in him becoming a thief and dicing with the law in a dangerous and daring game. What ensues is a cat-and-mouse style chase, as Devil is pursued by lauded police officer Himanshu (Randeep HoodaHighway) as well as »
