3 November 2015 5:37 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Over the years maverick director Sanjay Gupta has become synonyms for his gritty gangster flicks like the 'Shootout' series. Well after his recent release Jazbaa that featured Irrfan Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan we hear that Gupta is all set for his next that will feature Abhishek Bachchan. In fact, the film in question is titled Ek Tha Gangster which will feature Abhishek Bachchan in the role of a gangster. The racy thriller is based on S. Hussain Zaidi's 2014 bestseller, Byculla to Bangkok, a sequel to his 2012 novel, Dongri to Dubai. The story of the film will trace how youngsters were recruited and they went on to become local goons like Arun Gawli, Ashwin Naik and Chhota Rajan. However, despite being a gangster flick we hear that the film won't focus on the dreaded gangster, but instead it will follow the lives of the cops and politicians who are also involved. »

Why Irrfan Khan wont retaliate to Nawazuddins provocations

26 October 2015 4:47 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Irrfan Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are pitched against one another at every given opportunity. A Shabana-Smita kind of war between Irrfan Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the two reigning kings of avant-garde cinema has been brewing for a while.

It came out in the open, when, at an awards function at the beginning of 2014, while thanking his team and co-stars for his performance in The Lunchbox, Nawaz didn't mention Irrfan's name.

Protesting that much ado was being made out of nothing Nawaz said, "There was nothing deliberate in this. I didn't mention a lot of people by name. I just wanted to thank the entire team of The Lunchbox."

However, Nawaz did mention Nimrat Kaur with whom he had hardly one scene and not Irrfan with whom he shared almost every frame in The Lunchbox.

Nawaz defends himself saying, "It just happened that way. There was no intention to ignore him. »

Was Irrfan Khan the first choice for Raees

19 October 2015 4:02 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

To answer the question first. Yes, Irrfan Khan probably was the first choice for Rahul Dholakia's Raees. Just as Randeep Hooda was the first choice for Dabangg. The story, according to Dabangg producer Arbaaz Khan, goes like this. Abhinav Kashyap approached Arbaaz with a documentary-like raw real gritty and brutal script about a cop in Bihar trying to live a corruption-free life. Randeep Hooda was to star in the film. Arbaaz Khan took over the project and changed the entire look and budget. He changed it from a Hooda to a Salman project. Likewise initially Rahul Dholakia had planned Raees as a raw and gritty real-life drama about the rise of a hooch seller in Gujarat to a dreaded don. Says a source, "Then when Rahul went to Ritesh Sidhwani, the project became many sizes larger than life. It was no more an Irrfan vehicle. Shah Rukh is to »

Fawad Khan opposite Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

19 October 2015 3:44 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

It seems to be a season of unusual co-stars for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. While in her comeback film Jazbaa, she was teamed with Irrfan Khan, in her next film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil she has Fawad Khan for company. Karan Johar's curious-looking love quadrangle has cast Fawad Khan opposite Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. In this contemporized version of Sagar Sarhadi's 1977 quadrangular drama Doosra Aadmi, Aishwarya steps into the role of a woman who has lost her beloved and sees a reflection of her dead lover in a much younger man whom she meets many years after the tragedy. Unfortunately, the debonair dude, played by Rishi Kapoor in Talwar's film and Ranbir in Karan Johar's film, is already engaged elsewhere. While Neetu Singh had played Rishi's girlfriend in Doosra Aadmi, Anushka Sharma plays Ranbir's lover-girl in Ae Dil Hai Mushqil. But the really interesting bit of casting that »
