This could well be a David v/s Goliath moment for Sonam Kapoor but then it is happening indeed. Sonam Kapoor, whose film Dolly Ki Doli was fixed quite some time back for release on February 6, recently had an unexpected competitor in the form of Amitabh Bachchan, what with his Shamitabh also being fixed for the same date. However, contrary to what one may assume, her film is sticking to its release plans. "That's right, Dolly Ki Doli won't make any shift from the original plan," says a source connected to the film, "We had planned for the release long time back and now if Shamitabh has decided to arrive on the same date, so be it. In any case, it would be impractical to assume that you would have a solo release on your platter. If not Shamitabh, some other film would have come up. Even if we arrive »

If all had gone well Amitabh Bachchan and Sarika would have been seen together four years ago in a film called Shoebite, a.k.a Johnny Walker. Due to a production dispute, Shoebite got shelved. It was Shoojit Sircar's ardent wish to bring this untried pair together. Shoojit finally got a chance to do so in the serial Yudh of which he is the creative supervisor. Insiders insist that when a screen wife was being considered for Amitabh Bachchan, names like Deepti Naval and Nafisa Ali came up. It was Shoojit who insisted on Sarika doing the role. Says a source, "It was Shoojit Sircar who convinced Sarika to do the show. He is the creative consultant over the project." Shoojit says more than him it is Amitabh Bachchan who supervised the proceedings during the shooting of Yudh. "Mr Bachchan's years of experience came in handy for all of us. »
Entertaining RJs who crack jokes on popular politicians on private FM channels are being flaked by Parlimentarians.

Apart from the fact that Khoobsurat and Raja Natwarlal come from the stable of Utv Disney, there is yet another common factor in both films. Both films have Pakistani actors playing the lead. While Khoobsurat will mark the debut of Fawad Afzal Khan in Bollywood, actress Humaima Malick will be debuting in this industry with Raja Natwarlal. While not many Bollywood films happen to release in our neighboring country Pakistan, these films hold a special significance in the minds of Bollywood lovers there since their local actors will be playing lead roles in these films. In fact, Fawad Khan is excited about the fact that his first Bollywood film will be releasing in his country. He also further mentioned that he would have been disappointed if Khoobsurat wouldn't have released there because he owes this to his fans who played a big role in making him the star that he is today in Pakistan. »
