11 Bollywood Actresses’ Pay Packages Revealed, But It’s The Men Who Are Raking In The Moolah!

24 November 2015 5:02 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

How much Bollywood actresses get paid has remained a mystery ever since Kangana Ranaut came out strongly against the disparity in the paychecks compared to their male counterparts in the industry. While the debate did push their salaries up by some crores, the difference still remains quite apparent. Kangana recently became the highest paid actress in Bollywood when she signed a movie for Rs 11 crores. Her revised remuneration was well justified in her post Queen phase. She won a National Award for the same. But have you thought about the figure Salman Khan, the highest paid actor in Bollywood, commands? It’s more than five times – Rs 60 crores!

According to Ians, superstars Amitabh Bachchan, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar were a part of Forbes first global list of actors. The trio ranked among the world’s top ten highest-paid actors, which included Hollywood to Hong Kong and Bollywood. While the »

Kajol is now officially Kajol Devgn Vidya Balan Kapoor to follow

23 November 2015 4:09 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Rohit Shetty's Dilwale throws forward two interesting developments. Shah Rukh's name comes before Kajol's in the credit titles.

In 2014 Shah Rukh announced his leading lady's name would appear before his in the credit titles. And Deepika Padukone's name did appear before Shah Rukh's in Rohit Shetty's Chennai Express and Farah Khan's Happy New Year.

But now Dilwale carries Kajol's name after Shah Rukh, apparently by mutual consent.

Says a source, "In their fans' subconscious the two of them are...Shah Rukh and Kajol, in that order. Why mess with audiences' perceptions?"

More interestingly with Dilwale, Kajol has taken on her husband's surname. After being married to Ajay Devgn for 16 years Kajol is now officially Kajol Devgn in Dilwale.

Incidentally, 27 years ago Kajol's husband Ajay had done a film called Dilwale. Now it's Mrs Devgn's turn.

Says a source, "During all these »

Yuvraj-Hazel come clean about their relationship when will Ranveer-Deepika go public

19 November 2015 3:51 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

After Harbhajan Singh, it is time for another national-level cricketer to hitch his wagon with a starlet.

While Harbhajan's chosen one is Geeta Basra (last seen as Gippy Grewal's tyrannical ex-wife in Second-Hand Husband), Yuvraj Singh's choice is intriguing. Hazel Keech is a Bollywood starlet of British origin whose main claim to fame is her role as Kareena Kapoor's foxy friend in Bodyguard who walks off with Salman Khan in the end. Hazel also performed an item song in a long-forgotten film Maximum where she danced to the chartbuster 'Aa anthe amlapuram'.

During the shooting of Bodyguard, Hazel was seen in Salman's company and she was rumored to be his latest firangi flame. Salman and Hazel completely denied these rumours.

In 2013, Hazel went into 'Bigg Boss' and came out within two weeks fuming about the lack of inadequate food, water and hygiene in the 'Bigg Boss' house. »

Kareena Kapoor, Big B, Vidya Balan, Sunny Leone in ‘The Silver Screen & Beyond’ by Fawzan Hussain

17 November 2015 4:14 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

”Silver Screen” by Fawzan Husain is a series of images taking a closer look at our prolific film industry “Bollywood”.

Everything that is so essentially ‘Bollywood’…the varied components that come together, and work in harmony to make a film are depicted in Fawzan’s photographs. He shoots a different view of Bollywood by capturing behind the scenes action on the sets: no frontal portraits, no posing for his camera. His photographs portray the real picture, the real people without the glamour, artifacts and ‘larger than life’ idea usually associated with Bollywood Silver Screen led him to `Beyond Silverscreen’. A look at how we Indian’s have fascination with our Filmy folks. Once he started looking around, he could see them all around, Apart from the billboards he could find them in restaurants, on Kites, in gyms, in rickshaws. Some were using them as decoration while some to lure their fans or crazy customers, »

Which heroine doesnt want to work with Salman Khan Kareena defends her massy image

16 October 2015 3:46 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Kareena Kapoor Khan is very proud of being part of the last Salman Khan blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan. And for those scoffing at the brevity of her part, she scoffs back, "All the actresses are dying to work with Salman. Even the ones he doesn't want to work with. Unke ghar ka chakkar lagati rehti hain. Salman has told me how they message him." Could Kareena be talking about Priyanka Chopra? "I am not talking about anyone in particular. But I love massy films. It's easy for people to say, why did Kareena do Singham or Golmaal? Arrey, but that's my journey! I am first and foremost a commercial mainstream star. That's where I come from. Lekin kabhi kabhi ghar se nikalna bhi toh chahiye. Speaking of Priyanka, Kareena turned down Zoya Akhtar's Dil Dhadkane Do. Apparently, because she wasn't keen on working with Ranveer Singh. Kareena clarifies, "It wasn't because of any actor. »

9 October 2015 4:02 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

This year's biggest hit the Salman Khan - Kareena Kapoor starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan that released on Eid seems to have run into trouble. In fact the makers of the film which created waves at the box office are facing a Rs. 50 crore copyright infringement law suit that claims the entire plot line and some locations were blatantly inspired from another script. The suit filed in the Bombay High Court by director and TV producer Mahim Joshi, alleges the infringement is `career damaging', since he intended his script and subsequent film to be his launch project in the industry. As per Joshi's claims, the story of Bajrangi Bhaijaan is grounds for a 100% infringement along with prominent similarities in the screenplay, and locations. Along with his petition to the High Court, Joshi has also furbished documents that include detailed comparisons of the film's scenes and the sequences shot by Joshi. As per Joshi, »

Is Katrina Kaif getting ready for marriage

8 October 2015 3:29 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

After Asin, is it Katrina Kaif's turn to tie the knot? Like Asin, Katrina has now started to cut down on her work-load. Says a source close to the developments, "She opted out of the film Kung Fu Yoga with Jackie Chan after negotiations had almost reached closure. Now the role has gone to Ileana d' Cruz. Katrina also said no to major films like Rohit Shetty's Dilwale, Sanjay Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani and Ashutosh Gowariker's Mohenjo Daro only because they looked like time-consuming projects." A close friend reveals, "She is definitely cutting down on her roles, though we don't know about marriage." Katrina Kaif has only two projects on hand at the moment. Abhishek Kapoor's Fitoor is almost complete. And Nitya Mehra's Baar Baar Dekho which has just started. In both she is paired with leading men younger than her.

“Not bad at all,” says Subhash K Jha as he reviews Calendar Girls

26 September 2015 10:04 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

When he is not busy preening posturing and pontificating Madhur Bhandarkar can actually tell a spanking good story. Calendar Girls is familiar Bhandarkar territory. He penetrates the sham behind the glam of the entertainment industry and piece by piece dismantles its hypocrisies and double-speak.

Looking at the grime behind the glamour Calendar Girls builds a solid back-story for each of the five calendar girls. Akansha Puri, Avani Modi, Kyra Dutt, Ruhi Singh, Satarupa Pyne…agent provocateurs all, with bodies lithe enough to look they are for bikinis-born. None of the five girls can be said to be able actresses….not now at least. Though a couple of them do show some promise.

Maybe some day….

The telling of the intricately inter-woven tale ensures that the quintet of sexy girls’ lack of genuine acting chops does not take away from the sheer velocity in the narration.There is a brisk business-like quality to Bhandarkar’s story, »

5 Big directors left helpless sans lead actors

21 August 2015 3:42 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

5 of the brightest young directors of the post-Bhansali generation are faced with an acute and crippling casting crisis caused by the sudden departure of their main actor that has left their project bereft and anchorless. The first one to be so effected is Sujoy Ghosh. Imagine his shock when Vidya Balan whose career went to a new level with Sujoy's Kahaani said yes and then no to the director's next Durga Rani Singh. The rejection set off a chain reaction of setbacks for the project. Sujoy and Vidya who during Kahaani were like twins are no longer on talking terms. He later approached Kangna Ranaut and she too isn't doing the film. For now Sujoy has left Durga Rani Singh on the backburner. He confesses, "I wouldn't like to think that the casting problems have hurt my project. Every film has its own destiny. Durga Rani Singh will happen »

Brothers Movie Review

16 August 2015 7:06 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Akshay Kumar and Sidharth Malhotra are believable as brothers and as fighters. I only wish the rest of Brothers was as convincing, or even simply capable of putting those two things together.

Instead, Brothers is a series of solid fight scenes that’ll make you cringe in sympathy at their realism, thoroughly ruined by an amateurish attempt at drumming up family drama and tons of needless exposition. Filmmakers take the 2011 Hollywood mixed martial arts movie Warrior and instead of building upon it, they totally muddle it.

David (Kumar) and Monty (Malhotra) are the sons of former fighter turned drunk turned felon Gary Fernandes (Jackie Shroff, rather overacting), and they were divided by the crime that sent dad to jail — the one you won’t learn about until halfway through the movie even though the opening scene is Gary’s release from prison. David was a fighter who gave it up »

Popular actress and wife of veteran Paresh Rawal, Swaroop Sampat, has been away from the silver screen for quite some time now.

Further, Swaroop also added that she doesn't consider this a comeback and the only reason she agreed to do the film is because she is really fond of Balki and Gauri.
