16 July 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Annu Kapoor who had struck a chord with viewers and won several awards for his comic performance as a doctor in Vicky Donor, will now be seen in Mangal Ho, directed by Pritish Chakraborty, who has previously directed Chal Pichchur Banate Hain.

Elaborating on it, the veteran actor excitedly says, "I play a scientist and it is the first time that I'm getting an opportunity to talk about the film. This scientist is attempting to figure out if Mars can be colonized. And at the same time, we are trying to find out if there is Mangal (goodness) in life."

Kapoor had played a North Indian doctor in Vicky Donor and his humorous dialogues were one of the reasons for the success of the film. Filmmaker Pritish Chakraborty »

Bollywood Box Office Report Of The Week

22 April 2015 11:21 PM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

The major release of the coming week is the political satire, Jai Ho Democracy, featuring prestigious names such as Annu Kapoor, Om Puri, Satish Kaushik, Adil Hussain and Seema Biswas. The other listed releases are Ishq Ke Parindey and Nath-ek Pratha. With the audience preferring to wait for the biggie, the Akshay Kumar starrer, Gabbar Is Back (May 1), it will just be Jai Ho Democracy which holds some promise at the box-office.

Meanwhile, just as we had stated in our previous box-office report, all the releases of last week namely, the Bhatts' venture Mr. X (3D), Kalki Koechlin starrer Margarita With A Straw, as also the mythological Nanak Shah Fakir, saw dull to dismal openings. And it was just Emraan Hashmi's Mr. X which dominated the show with a 20-25 percent (on an average) start. The film did not show any major upsurge in collection during the remaining days »

Sunny Leone takes on Paresh Rawal

10 April 2015 4:26 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

It's sex against religion this week at the box office. Sunny Leone whose journey into Bollywood is now the fodder for an international documentary would be seen playing the title role in Ek Paheli Leela this week. While her film has the oomph factor, she has performing stalwarts like Naseeruddin Shah, Paresh Rawal and Anu Kapoor to contend with. The heavyweight trio gets all set this Friday for Dharam Sankat Mein, an Indian version of Josh Appiganesi's The Infidel, based on the touchy topic of religious conversion. Considering how successful Raj Kumar Hirani was at taking potshots at organized religion, Dharam Sankat Mein is expected to tickle plenty of funny bones this Friday. On the other hand, Ms. Leone aims to tickle more than just the funny bone. This is the phase of the female hero. Kangna Ranaut in Queen and Anushka Sharma in NH10 have dazzled audiences while taking cent restage. »

Presented and produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures, produced by Sajjad Chunawala and Shariq Patel from Trigno Media and directed by Fuwad Khan, it is the first time a Bollywood movie has 3 National Film Award winners in its main cast.

This rip-roaring social satire is helmed by versatile actor Paresh Rawal aka Dharampal, a man caught in the midst of an identity crisis. His entire belief system is shaken when documents from his departed mother’s locker reveal to him that instead of being what he believed himself to be – an average upper middle class Hindu – he was actually born to a Muslim family! A hilarious turn of events further leads to Dharampal truly being in Sankat. »

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.
