Sridevi and Boney Kapoor are currently in search of a new residence, after a fire broke out in their bungalow on Saturday evening. Fortunately, the actress and her family are safe and none of them have suffered any injury. On December 21, around 6.15 pm when the family was getting prepped up for an important event, a sudden scream of Sridevi's daughter Jhanvi disrupted the preparations as the air conditioner in her room was churning out fire. Though all the members were moved out of the house immediately, it is being said that the ground floor of the house is still in a derelict condition. Right after the incident, while Sridevi's mother-in-law was shifted to Sanjay Kapoor's residence, Sridevi and Boney Kapoor along with the kids have shifted to their neighbor Rajkumar Santoshi's house. »

All eyes were set on Tevar as it marked the debut association of the father-son duo, Arjun and Boney Kapoor. However, recently Sanjay Kapoor revealed that he will be producing the film. Apparently, the decision was taken since Boney is busy handling other ventures. Sanjay added that his brother Boney will be tied up with No Entry 2 with Salman Khan and hence in order to avoid clash, he has taken up the project. This film is a remake of Telugu blockbuster Okkadu and will have Arjun reprising the role of a kabbadi player. Tevar is to be directed by debutant Amit Sharma and will have Sonakshi Sinha playing the female lead in the film. »

Here's the best-kept secret in Bollywood. Anil Kapoor loves to let the drinks flow during his parties. But he doesn't touch a drop himself. Right before the wrap-up/ success party for his serial 24 started on Saturday evening, Anil loudly announced, "Everyone must get drunk." He then proceeded to ply all those present with drinks while Anil himself didn't touch a drop. However, everyone presumed Anil was sozzled to the gills. "He danced to 'My Name Is Lakhan', screamed every guest's name as though he or she were his long-lost best friend, pranced around with energy-level of kangaroo on steroids and made sure no one glass was empty. He was in his element all right," says Richa Chadha an unabashed Anil Kapoor fan who showed up in a stunning black dress. Anil's brothers Boney and Sanjay Kapoor also showed up to express solidarity. Strangely the wives of all three Kapoor brothers were missing. »

Ten years ago to this very day, the hilarious, heartfelt and hopeful film Kal Ho Naa Ho released. This film soon became a fast favourite of mine and to this day it is still my number 1 Bollywood movie. With the amazing chemistry between the principal cast (Shahrukh Khan, Preity Zinta and Saif Ali Khan) to the witty one-liners to the soulful life philosophy underscoring the entire story, Khnh has everything one would want to see in a movie.
But for those Bollywood fans less Khnh-obsessed than I, it seems the 10th anniversary is the perfect time to look back and reflect on what exactly it was that made Kal Ho Naa Ho a standout film that – in my humble opinion – stands the test of time.
Most Comedic Scene
Kal Ho Naa Ho is filled to the brim with funny moments. The humour is sharp, slick and witty. With brilliant comedic »

It’s common for talks of records breaking to follow a film once it has released however, perhaps for the first time the media is able to report a record breaking figure for a film prior to release.
Salman Khan’s upcoming January release, Jai Ho, has been picked up Eros International for domestic and overseas distribution. The team at Eros sat down for a screening of the film to decide on the distribution details including the final figure. However so impressed with the film they cut discussions short within 1 hour of watching the film and struck a deal of 110 crores for the distributions rights. Making the film a member of the 100 cr club much prior to the release! Made on a reported budget of 130 crores Jai Ho is safely on its way of making its investors more than happy. Incidentally this is said to be the biggest budget a Salman Khan film has had. »

The biggest hurdle that a remake has to cross is the passion of the fans of the original. Zanjeer 1974 was no ordinary film. There was so much to this film that made it extraordinary: classic in status, the Angry Young Man icon for Amitabh Bachchan, the genre shift from romance to action with story-telling and let’s not forget Mona Darling. Pretty hefty stuff if you think about it. Nevertheless, the fresh team for Zanjeer 2013 headed by Apoorva Lakhia, has had a debut, a comeback of sorts and enough off screen drama to give a bit of original hype to the remake. But hype doesn’t make up for audience impact nor an entertaining story. Ok so the original film was of the same simple story of revenge and action and yes, it had a bigger hand in Amitabh’s life than played by Ram Charan. But in the end, »

Bollywood came together to ring in Sridevi’s 50th birthday in style at Amar Singh’s bash for the actress. Although a lot of the A-listers were missing on the red carpet, the event saw its fair share of rare faces. More importantly the red carpet saw its fair share of good and bad outfits.
Sridevi & Jhanvi Kapoor
Ditching the sarees the birthday girl went for a Prabal Gurung midi dress. Definitely a good call seeing as the event was hardly an occasion for her usual Sabyasachis and Manish Malhotras. The outfit worked great as did the hair but definitely not feeling the makeup.
The younger Kapoor, who has been stealing lime light in fashion columns, definitely fared much better than mum. Not only was it a great choice of outfit but brilliant minimalistic styling.
Sridevi: Hot (minus the makeup)

While most of Sridevi's leading men from Vinod Khanna to Anil Kapoor showed up at the celebratory party thrown at the lounge Alibi in Colaba (Mumbai) by politician Amar Singh and Sridevi's husband Boney Kapoor, Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan who were supposed to 'most certainly' be there did a no-show.
And the reason was not their mutual hostility (yes, the Iftar hug notwithstanding, they still don't talk). Their reason for not turning up for Sridevi's golden hour was quite different.
According to a very reliable source, "Salman and Shah Rukh were both aware of each other's invitation at the party. They didn't mind coming face to face. They didn't show up for entirely different reasons. Salman was all dressed and ready to leave for the party when he heard that the party had been organized by his one-time friend Bunty Walia. He immediately changed his mind. »
