Shruti Haasan sings for Main Gabbar

27 February 2015 6:49 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Actress Shruti Haasan has been pursuing the art of singing since childhood. While we got a glimpse of her vocal skills in Tevar and Shamitabh, now the actress will be continuing the trend for her next upcoming film Main Gabbar.

Shruti Haasan, who had a special appearance in Tevar for the item song 'Madamiyan', had lent her voice to Sonakshi Sinha for the melodious track 'Joganiyan' and later, for her sister Akshara Haasan in Shamitabh for the song 'Sannata'. And now, we hear that she has sung for the Akshay Kumar starrer Main Gabbar too. However, unlike her previous numbers, this time around, the song in question will feature Shruti, who is playing the female lead in the action drama. The lyrics for the number are romantic and the rock - pop elements will add an edgy touch to the track.

Produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali in association with Viacom 18 and directed by Krish, »

Pritam Waiting To Get Salman Khan To The Mic!

13 January 2015 1:10 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Pritam is extremely kicked about his composition for Bajrangi Bhaijaan, the film starring Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor which will be directed by Kabir Khan. The music director can hardly wait to begin working on it.

“I’m doing Kabir Khan’s Phantom which doesn’t need many songs. When Kabir gave me Bajrangi Bhaijaan‘s script to read, I immediately wanted to be a part of the film,” says the music director, insisting this is one of Salman’s best scripts in a long time.

When pointed out that the film has already created a buzz as a film that promotes ‘love jihad’, a shocked Pritam said, “There is nothing communal about it, it’s a human story of a man and a child. Once they see it, no community will find anything objectionable in it. It’s not a typical Salman Khan film, yet only he can do justice to the script. »

Salman Khan Kareena Kapoor Khan shooting in Shekhawati

7 January 2015 2:50 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

The region of Shekhawati in North Rajasthan famous for its lavish havelis, became host to Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor and director Kabir Khan who descended on this sleepy historical region on Sunday morning. Apparently, Shekhawati has none of the amenities that Salman and Kareena are used to. Says a source from the location, "Salman Khan is used to roughing it out. He can survive even on basic necessities. But for Kareena who lives lavishly in the lap of luxury, Shekhawati is a far cry from her Begum's lifestyle." Adds the source, "Not that Kareena has not roughed it out during her outdoors. She shot at the Indo-Pak border for her first film Refugee. And she shot in some really rugged terrain for Imtiaz Ali's Jab We Met in places where they didn't have proper hotels. But Shekhawati is a different experience. It is a very ethnic Rajasthani region.

Reflections 2014: Bollywood Razzies

2 January 2015 8:44 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

2014 gave many gems to adore like Queen, Finding Fanny and Haider, but for every good film there’s a Humshakals, It’s Entertainment and Action Jackson. With every editorial on the new changes in Bollywood, there’s the inexplicable popularity of duds that have Ajay Devgn loudly zipping up his trousers or Saif running around London like a dog. It’s baffling that films like Bang Bang or Kick work, but the modest failure of Humshakals had us filled with glee, maybe next year the audiences will finally give up on Sajid Khan. This year’s Razzies features some repeat offenders (looking at you Jackky!) and some newbies who should know better.

Awful Actress – Katrina Kaif in Bang Bang

Every time, we want to forgive Katrina Kaif for her blandness and poker face, she gives us another lacklustre performance to trash. It’s a bit too easy here in Bang Bang, »
