A decade after they played a couple, Naseer and Sarika’s kids pair up for Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laaddoo Deewana

It was exactly a decade ago when Naseeruddin Shah and Sarika came together for Rahul Dholakia’s Parzania [2007]. The tragic tale had the veteran actors pair up as a grieving couple as their child goes missing. Now 10 years down the line, it is their respective children who have grown up and are now being seen together as a pair in Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laaddoo Deewana. This time around too, there is a child involved in the tale, though the peg is that of an unborn, and not a missing child.

“It is as uncanny as it gets,” comments our source, “Who would have thought that the family members would come together again on screen with a child in the middle of the affairs? Of course, Parzania was a serious tragic affair whereas Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laaddoo Deewana is a feel-good family entertainer. Still, it is some coincidence to

“Baar Baar Dekho Is A Gorgeous Looking Film With A Heart” – Subhash K Jha

Baar Baar Dekho

Starring Katrina Kaif, Sidharth Malhotra

Directed by Nitya Mehra

Rating: ****(4 Stars)

What if we get the chance to rectify all the big mistakes of our life? And what if a magical wand—or a pundit’s jigerypokery—takes us into the future to personally witness all those critical twists and turns on the road journey of life where we may swerve into the wrong lane? And then what if we get a chance to revise our actions and deeds accordingly?

Debutant director Nitya Mehra’s Baar Baar Dekho is unlike any romantic yarn—I hesitate from giving it that loosely-used term the ‘rom-com’. It is the ultimate what-if saga, narrated with a tender care and subdued splendor that make every moment between the lead pair precious and gladdening.

Watching the film we are just happy to see Jai and Diya togeth. It could be because they are

Akshara Haasan turns choreographer for Shamitabh

Kamal Haasan and Sarika's two beautiful daughters seem to be the chip off the old block. While Shruti has leapt into Big League with Gabbar where she teams up with Akshay Kumar, the younger daughter Akshara is all set to make her debut in R Balki's Shamitabh where she's teamed with her sister Shruti's Tamil co-star Dhanush. Furthermore Akshara has a hidden talent that will get a chance to be seen in Shamitabh. She is a dancer and a choreographer, and a very accomplished one at that. When Balki got to know of her dormant talent he invited Akshara to do her own choreography for her dance. Says Kamal Haasan, "I am glad both our daughters have taken to their parents' profession. But both my daughters have an aptitude for other vocations. While Shruti is the musician in the family, Akshara is the dancer and choreographer. She has composed

Shoojit Sircar reunites Amitabh Bachchan and Sarika

Shoojit Sircar reunites Amitabh Bachchan and Sarika
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.

Shruti Haasan sings for Sonakshi Sinha in Tevar
When Bollywood actresses come together for a film, they often spark rumours of catfights. But looks like the contemporary actresses are in a much secured place and they have been lending a helping hand to their co-actresses. Shruti Haasan, who is a popular actress down South and in Bollywood, has lend her voice for a romantic song in the upcoming film Tevar starring Sonakshi Sinha.

In the recent trend of many actresses turning singers for their films (Shraddha Kapoor, Alia Bhatt), Shruti Haasan, however, is not a part of the cast in the film but has only sung a song. The music directed Sajid-Wajid believe that Shruti has a fresh voice which suited the mood of the song and hence had decided to rope in the actress to sing. On the other hand, we hear that Sonakshi Sinha had no qualms over this decision and was rather happy about Shruti being a part of it.

Akshara Haasan makes her debut in Balkis film

Akshara Haasan makes her debut in Balkis film
It's final. Kamal Haasan and Sarika's younger daughter Akshara Haasan who has studied music and filmmaking is also bitten by the acting bug. Both her parents felt Akshara was more cut out for being behind the camera. And since the elder daughter Shruti was already an actress, Akshara's filmmaking potential would have nicely rounded off the family's creative ambit. "But parents can't make up their children's minds. Not now-a-days at least. Kamalji and Sarikaji thought Akshara was more interested in direction. Sarika put her on to her friend Rahul Dholakia with whom she has worked in Parzania and Society. Akshara assisted Rahul Dholakia and the whole family thought she was heading towards a career in filmmaking. But then Balki spotted Akshara. He offered her a role in his new film. And Akshara took the plunge," says a friend of Kamal Haasan's family. Interestingly, Akshara is paired with Dhanush in Balki's film.

Subhash K Jha Selects His 10 Favourite Films Of 2012

That 2012 began with an overwrought hyper-melodramatic brutal and tumultuous remake of Agneepath and ended with Yash Chopra’s muted mellow all-heart-no-malice ode to romance Jab Tak Hai Jaan seems indicative of the direction that Bollywood seems headed for. The journey, as we can see, is unpredictable and largely exciting. Looking back, some films of 2012 that fetched hype-star ratings seem bloated and over-eager to please either critics or the masses, but never both. Luckily the films that were truly meritorious did get a place under the swoon.

Each year Bollywood surprises us, and not always in a good way. 2012 seems like a watershed year even by the continuously evolving standards of filmmaking set by envelope-pushing directors who have filtered into filmdom during the past years. 2012 was the year when Tigmanshu Dhulia, Sujoy Ghosh and Shoojit Sircar came into their own with films that took mainstream cinema to new heights. It was

It was important for Dhanush for Kamal Haasan to watch the film, not only because it's a crucial release for Kamal Hassan's daughter Shruti, but also because Dhanush wanted tips on improving the quality of the product. Kamal's suggestions would now be incorporated in the Hindi version of 3 when it releases in May. We also hear that Dhanush who has been working overtime on the Hindi dubbing of 3 at the Yash Raj dubbing studio in Mumbai might decide to get his voice done by a dubbing artiste. Apparently, Kamal has advised Dhanush to completely do away with the South Indian flavour for the Hindi version of 3. Interestingly, Dhanush iconic father-in-law Rajinikanth and
