Film Bombay 90’s to be relived on big screen

31 January 2016 6:01 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Bollywood films sometimes take a lot of inspiration from real life incidents. The 90s saw a lot of action during its time between the Police and the Underworld. The newest offering will recreate the stories of Feroz Kokani – key aide of Dawood Ibrahim, shooter Rauf Raja and the shooting of music mogul Gulshan Kumar. In 1997, Gulshan Kumar was shot outside the Andheri Jiteshwar Shiv temple. This part of the movie has been shot in the exact same location.

Director Ashok Nanda said, “Apart from the Gulshan Kumar murder scene, a lot of other incidents – riots, gang wars, shoot outs will be included in the film and the interesting part is all will be shot on real locations to give it the authenticity.”

Interestingly, Rauf was out on parole and had fled to Bangladesh and was in their prisons for staying there without legal papers. The Indian Authorities established contact with »

Reflections 2015: Top 10 Actors of 2015

15 January 2016 9:30 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

We know 2015 was not the best of years for Bollywood.

Big names, bad scripts is how the year mostly went.

Nevertheless, despite the bad scripts there were some stellar performances.

Badlapur’s gritty plunge into the darkness of the human spirit had us recognise what a gem Varun Dhawan really is. Bajirao Mastani’s warrior general, Ranveer Singh, had us on the edge of our seats. Bhashkor Banerjee (Big B) had us love him and accept him (as well as all his imaginary illnesses) in Piku, teaching us that parents are unusual and vulnerable too.

We filtered through a very mixed 2015 and now bring you BollySpice’s Top 10 Bollywood Actors of 2015!

10. Ayushmann Khurrana – Dum Laga Ke Haisha

At number 10 we have the charming Ayushman Khurrana. Ayushman has always been especially special because he is never afraid of trying unusual roles. He made his Bollywood debut in 2012 with gutsy film on being a sperm donar, »

Deepika Padukone in Priyanka Chopra out of Gustakhiyan

13 January 2016 2:39 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Priyanka Chopra is no longer in Jasmeet Reen's Gustakhiyan, the bio-pic chronicling the stormy relationship between poet Sahir Ladhianvi and author Amrita Pritam. While Irrfan has been roped in to play Sahir, it was reported that Priyanka Chopra was to play the love of his life. Says a source, "Since Priyanka got along like a house on fire with the Gustakhiyan producer Sanjay Bhansali, the reports of her stepping into author Amrita Pritam's role were taken to be authentic. However the truth is Priyanka is not doing Gustakhiyan." So who will play Amrita Pritam? The buzz is Sanjay Bhansali wants his 'Mastani' Deepika Padukone in Amrita Pritam's part. "After Piku where they played a tentative couple, Irrfan and Deepika would get a chance to do a full-fledged romantic film. It would be terrific follow-up. On the other hand Irrfan and Priyanka have only done the flop Saat Khoon Maaf together. »

Reflections 2015: The Best Indie and Festival Films of 2015

10 January 2016 3:30 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

By Katherine Matthews and Rumnique Nannar

One of the most frustrating aspects of covering festival and indie films has been the limited access for a wider audience – very often review comments run along the lines of: “Tell me where I can see this!” 2015 was a year that finally saw some great shifts in this, with a number of festival films finally getting a theatrical release – some of them films that had been on the festival circuit for a couple of years, some of them hot off the 2015 festival rounds. Audiences for both festival and indie films are small, but they’re growing, and access to this year’s “best of” selection should be easier for interested viewers. 2015 was, indeed, a great year for these films – enjoy our choices for Festival and Indie Bests!

15 years ago today, we finally found out why Homer Simpson is so stupid

7 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

15 years ago today, we finally learned the cause of Homer Simpson’s sub-normal intelligence. “The Simpsons” episode “Homr” gave us an answer as to how Homer could get his arms stuck in not one but two vending machines and forget the word for spoon (“that metal … dealy… you use to… dig… food?”). In that season 12 episode — which aired on January 7, 2001 — an x-ray reveals that Homer has a crayon lodged in his brain that’s been there since he was six years old. When Homer gets the crayon removed, his Iq skyrockets, and he’s suddenly no longer the village idiot. But once he realizes he’s happier when he’s dumber (despite a newfound connection to his intelligent daughter Lisa), he has the crayon re-inserted into his brain. Other notable January 7 happenings in pop culture history: • 1929: The comic strip “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century” (then called “Buck Rogers 2429 A. »

Irrfan Khan prepares to play poet Sahir Ludhianvi

6 January 2016 4:50 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

The very versatile Irrfan Khan is preparing to plunge into the part of poet par excellence Sahir Ludhianvi in new director Jasmeet Reen's bio-pic. In fact Irrfan has been in preparation for the role for nearly two years now, catching up with Sahir's lyrics on his I-Pod and reading up as much as he could about the man, the poet and the lover. For a while it was rumoured that Farhan Akhtar may take over the part. "Why go by rumours? It was even rumoured that Arjun Kapoor was to play Sahir Ludhianvi! It was always Irrfan. His sensitivities and his personality suit the part," says someone close to the project. Sanjay Leela Bhansali who co-produces the Sahir bio-pic with Arshi Dua also approves of Irrfan as Sahir. "In fact Bhansali wanted Irrfan to do the voiceover for Bajirao Mastani. Irrfan immediately agreed and asked for the technical team to »
