Amitabh Bachchan responds to Anushka Sharmas twitter threat

27 July 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

With superstar Salman Khan's controversial tweets on Sunday receiving flak from the public, now it is actress Anushka Sharma's tweet about threatening to block people who spread negative messages on Twitter that has received a lot of attention. In what seems like a completely random move, Anushka Sharma posted on Twitter, "Trying to keep my Twitter positive (well as positive as possible) so will Block people who rant nonsense with no sense of responsibility." It comes as a surprise to see the actress reacting so strongly about 'senseless' people on the micro blogging without a concrete reason. However, responding to her tweet was megastar Amitabh Bachchan who decided to add a tinge of humour to it, saying, "@AnushkaSharma +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ .... don't you dare Block me after all these 'positives' .. haha .. love." Taking the comment in her stride, Anushka Sharma too replied, "@SrBachchan hahahahaaha noooo way !! Not in a lifetime Sir »

R Balkis next to feature Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan

24 July 2015 11:52 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Amitabh Bachchan's last release that was directed by R. Balki didn't quite make the cut at the box office. However, despite the film's low key response, we hear that Bachchan will soon be seen working with the director again for their fourth collaboration after Cheeni Kum, Paa and Shamitabh.

While we know that Bahchcan will be teaming up with Balki, the interesting part is that joining them will be none other than Jaya Bachchan who were last seen sharing screen space in the 2012 Bhojpuri film Ganga Devi that was produced by their make-up man, Deepak Savant. However, for those of you who think it will be yet another Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, we hear that their roles will be restricted to a cameo that will be wrapped in a two day shoot. If that wasn't enough, we hear that the two actors will be seen playing themselves, a superstar power couple. »

24 July 2015 2:50 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

This super hit is song is well-known for its thought provoking lyrics but it is a tragedy that its brilliant lyricist Nida Fazli did not receive the kind of accolades that he truly deserved despite penning many hits songs like 'Aa bhi jaa....' (Sur), 'Tu Is Tarah Se Meri Zindagi Mein'(Aap To Aise Na The), 'Hosh Waalon Ko Khabar Kya'....(Sarfarosh).

Speaking about the song 'Kabhi Kisi Ko Mukammal Jahan Nahi Milta'... Nida Fazli in an interview said, "Actually the song is a poem from a collection of my book. Incidentally, two renowned filmmakers Sibte Hassan Rizvi and Yash Chopra happened to read it and approached me to use it in their films."

"I was in dilemma as same poem cannot be incorporated as a song in two films. Hence after a lot of pondering I gave the rights to Sibte Hassan Rizvi to use it as a »

Respect film critics if you have invited them!

Respect film critics if you have invited them!

Kabir Khan created a brilliant climax scene for Bajrangi Bhaijaan. People from India and Pakistan converged on both sides in an attempt to set Pavan Kumar Chaturvedi free. Now, Pavan had completed a noble task of ensuring Munni was safe back with her parents and citizens from both countries were pushing for justice.

At Fun Republic in Versova, Andheri, in Mumbai, a similar scene was being enacted before the Press Show.

Apparently, there was a movie contest where winners were being given their free tickets. The film critics and assorted media was there too, on invitation. However, one had to push through the crowd to get to the front only to be told by the usher that we would have to enter with the tickets.

Fair enough!

But where were the tickets and the hosts? Obviously, since they had not planned themselves, »

When Salim Khan-Javed Akhtar charged more than Amitabh Bachchan!

17 July 2015 5:37 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

Writers around the globe are acknowledged to be the key for a movie's success but it is pathetic that Bollywood has always given them a step motherly treatment. However the writers' pair, who changed the trend and demanded remunerations at par with stars, are unarguably the only star writer duo Salim Javed, who penned hit movies like Sholay, Deewaar, Zanjeer, Don, Trishul, Shakti, Mr. India etc.

Salim Khan in an interview said, "The reason why we demanded such high remunerations was because we were confident of our skills and wrote scripts that were hard-bound, a trend that was initiated by us."

Recalls Salim Khan, "When I used to assist distinguished writer Abrar Alvi (He wrote hit films like Pyaasa, Kaagaz Ke Phool, Chaudvin Ka Chand etc.) in the mid-50s, I always used to insist him to increase his remuneration standard reasoning writers are the backbone of the film and »

16 July 2015 12:31 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

Katrina Kaif may be termed the most beautiful actress from her contemporaries, but she doesn't exactly have beautiful memories in Bollywood. Yes, the lady has gone through a lot of controversies, right from the beginning of her career. On her birthday today, we bring you 5 such unforgettable incidents that Katrina Kaif was involved in. Take a look...

Shah Rukh Khan-Salman Khan spat

It was possibly one of the most spoken about birthdays of Katrina Kaif. On the lady's 27th birthday, her then alleged boyfriend Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan had an ugly spat of words, which resulted in 5-year cold war between the two superstar Khans. And later Katrina left Salman for Ranbir. Umm, was it all even worth it?

Ibiza holiday with alleged beau Ranbir Kapoor

We could only speculate about the relationship between Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif, till their leaked bikini photos in Ibiza added fuel to the fire. »

Star kids who failed to click when paired in their debut flick

15 July 2015 4:09 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

There is a lot of buzz around Aditya Pancholi's son Sooraj Pancholi and Suniel Shetty's daughter Athiya Shetty being launched by Salman Khan's production Hero, which is a remake of Subhash Ghai's blockbuster of 80s. However, star kids (especially two new faces) getting swanky launch pads in Bollywood with grooming and exposure is not a new thing. In the past also, we have come across such hugely-anticipated debuts. Though they arrived amidst much hype and fanfare, they couldn't entice the audience in their debut venture.While some star kids later went on to win over everyone, others couldn't create any spark!

But we hope it doesn't turn out to be the case with Sooraj Pancholi and Athiya Shetty, who are about to start their career with Hero.

Meanwhile, we take a look at other star kids, who were given dream launch pads in the industry, but »

Nawazuddin Siddiqui: From blink-and-miss appearance to working with Salman, Shah Rukh, Aamir

14 July 2015 4:34 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

Nawazuddin Siddiqui is one example of a man who went from rags to riches, literally! From being a small-time watchman to playing a role equivalent to the lead, the actor has surely shot to fame with hardwork.

Nawazuddin started his career with Shool (1999), where he played the role of a waiter. Surprisingly, the movie also starred Manoj Bajpayee (who was the main lead in Gangs Of Wasseypur, where Nawazuddin gained the much-deserved recognition). However, he started getting noticed from Anurag Kashyap's movie Black Friday.

Nawaz then played a terrorist in Kabir Khan's New York, and now the actor plays a sidekick in his upcoming movie Bajrangi Bhaijaan starring Salman Khan along side.

He also did minor roles in 2010 content-driven movies Peepli Live and Paan Singh Tomar, but got hugely noticed in them. He also played a major role in another Irrfan Khan starrer Lunchbox (in 2013) and Vidya Balan »

Sunny Deol does what Amitabh Bachchan could not!

13 July 2015 1:13 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

Amitabh Bachchan last played the 'hero' in the 1999 film Sooryavansham. In a double role, his younger self was paired opposite the late Soundarya almost 30 years his junior then! The huge age gap showed. The younger Amitabh was visibly uncomfortable in his scenes with Soundarya. His gait was almost apologetic. The film bombed and soon he took to playing roles of a father beginning with Mohabbatein, followed by Baghbhan. Amitabh was 57 years old then!

Sunny Deol today is 57 years old and he has been paired opposite a heroine almost 30 years his junior in Kangana Ranaut in I Love NY. Surprisingly, Sunny has done what Amitabh could not.he has pulled off a love story with charm and grace. As the man not wanting to get into a committed relationship and then falling head-on, 'love-at-first-sight', he is convincing, appealing and believable. He manages to hold his own against a resurgent Kangana and »
