28 August 2014 7:56 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Bollywood actor, Akshay Kumar, is always finding new ways to entertain his audiences, whether it be performing dangerous stunts or doing the unexpected that leaves the audience awestruck. Now Akshay has attempted a never-before-dreamt stunt for his upcoming film, The Shaukeens.

Along with his stunning leading lady in the film, Lisa Haydon, there is a scene where the two are sitting on a couch and hanging mid-air, which has left everybody speechless. This scene was shot with the help of a chopper, which flew the two stars on the red couch, high up in the air.

This decision was put forward by Akshay himself, who was inspired by a Tom and Jerry episode, and insisted that this scene has to be included in the film. The scene was shot on a stunning beach in Cape Town.

The Shaukeens is a remake of the 1982 film, Shaukeen, which starred Ashok Kumar, Utpal Dutt, »

Shaukeen remake re-titled as The Shaukeens

25 July 2014 6:14 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

After many setbacks, the remake of the 80s Bollywood classic Shaukeen starring Akshay Kumar and Lisa Haydon, finally went on floor few weeks back and now the makers have decided to re-title the film. While initially they decided to retain the original title, now they believe that it should be titled as The Shaukeens.

Producer Murad Khetani stated that the title change adds the contemporary touch. Though it is an official remake, according to Murad, it is only the essence of the previous film that has been maintained. However, the story and the characters have undergone some changes in order to make it relevant to modern times. They are also planning to add some more humour, colour, more glamour and edginess in order to present it as a complete package. They feel that the current title adds to the coolness quotient and will be able to attract the youth audience too. »

Old is gold! (Column: Bollywood Country)

19 March 2014 3:19 AM, PDT | | See recent RealBollywood news »

I wonder why filmmakers shy away from narrating tales about elderly people with senior actors in the lead roles.

Well-narrated stories revolving around ripe old age have takers, but such efforts are few and far between.

Remember how much everyone appreciated and enjoyed watching the funny mother-in-law and daughter-in-law's bantering and drinking sessions in "Vicky Donor" played by Kamlesh Gill and Dolly Ahluwalia respectively?

And how can we forget middle-aged doctor Baldev Chaddha, essayed by Annu Kapoor to the hilt, who was central to the hit movie on sperm donation that released in 2012 and pleased all and sundry.. »

Nargis Fakhri walks out of Shaukeen remake

12 March 2014 5:29 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

After writer-director Rumi Jaffrey made an exit from the ambitious Shaukeen remake, the film's female lead Nargis Fakhri too has opted out of the film. Co-producer Murad Khetani stated that they had a long outdoor schedule in Mauritius which starts from April 20, and Nargis had to give away the dates from April 20-27 for her Hollywood project. Though they obliged, the shoot of her Hollywood film was later extended for a couple of days more and the actress ultimately had to give Shaukeen remake a skip since the delay would have affected the jam packed shoot schedule of actors like Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher, Annu Kapoor and Piyush Mishra. Nargis too expressed her unhappiness over quitting the remake of this cult as she too was excited to work with a director like Abhishek Sharma. The shoot of Shaukeen remake will complete in June and the film is slated to release »
