After the disastrous Humshakals, it seems that Saif Ali Khan has now started to play safe as far as his films and onscreen characters are concerned. The film which he has reportedly signed now is called Mr. Chaalu, wherein he plays a manipulative womanizer. While the film is being produced by Excel Entertainment, it is being directed by Reema Kagti. If the reports are to be believed, then, Saif's character in the film is penciled on the lines of what he had earlier played in films like Kal Ho Na Ho, Dil Chahta Hai, and Salaam Namaste.

Recently, there were reports that surfaced claiming that Irrfan Khan had at the last minute walked out of Vashu Bhagnani's next venture Welcome To Karachi.

I suggested we delay the shoot to plan things as it's a character-based film and needs good actors, who can get the Karachi accent right. I didn't »
Shakespeare’s Hamlet has a complex protagonist, revenge, murder and deceit. It is no wonder that the play has witnessed a number of adaptations and is revered as one of Shakespeare’s greatest works. In terms of film, there have been several adaptations.

Now the time has come for Bollywood to explore Hamlet through Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider, set for release on the 2nd of October 2014.

Based on what we’ve heard so far about Jurassic World, it’s shaping up to be one of 2015′s best movies, and Colin Trevorrow is a promising young filmmaker who looks set to follow up some great lower budget Indies with a »

Earlier this month, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow revealed that production has wrapped on this new adventure, which takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park.
