21 minutes ago | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

He is playing a loveable Sikh superhero in his next release A Flying Jatt. While all eyes are on whether Tiger Shroff would set a hat-trick of hits after Heropanti and Baaghi, the young and shining star recently showed that he is a hero for animals and human beings alike. Yesterday (29th July), on the event of International Tiger Day, he sent a letter to Environment Minister Anil Dave. There, he urged the Minister along with PETA India, to ensure that Government focuses on protecting tigers in their natural homes.

Tiger Shroff truly feels that tigers need to be in their natural homes where they have ample space to roam, spend time with their families, and engage in other natural behaviors. Above all, they are the most protected there,” informs our source.

Celebrities are often hounded by paparazzi, especially at airports and more often than not, the stars gladly oblige and pose for them. Recently, one such incident turned ugly resulting in a scuffle, thereby hurting former beauty queen and actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's mother Brinda.

It's not new for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to be clicked along with her daughter Aaradhya and her mother Brinda at the airport. Unfortunately, this time around while returning from London, things went out of hand when a media person tried to get too close to the actress. The bodyguards tried to intervene but the incident turned aggressive when one of the bodyguards pushed a cameraman, who lost his balance and fell on Aishwarya's mother who was right behind.

17 July 2016 8:10 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Many of us have been wondering what writer/director Midhun Manuel Thomas would do to follow his debut film, the social comedy Aadu: Oru Bheegara Jeeviyanu ("Goat: A Dangerous Creature"), and with today's trailer release, the wait is finally over. Ann Mariya Kalippilaanu stars the talented young actress Sara Arjun, who won a Vijay award for Best Child Artist for the Tamil film Saivam, where she acted alongside veteran actor Nassar -- more recently she's been seen in the Hindi film Jazbaa playing Aishwarya Rai's daughter.   Aju Varghese and Sunny Wayne were both seen in Aadu, but here they take centre stage as two of Ann Maria's goondas (hired thugs).  The special appearance hinted at in the trailer is probably the internet's worst kept secret at...

Heres why Salman Khan wont apologise about his rape analogy

1 July 2016 2:58 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

On Wednesday, Salman Khan's legal team-who have been a little disused in recent months-sprung into action and sent off a response to two prominent women's organizations for their notices to the superstar for his remark comparing his wrestling scenes in Sultan to the act of rape. Salman Khan's response was unapologetic. "Salman will not apologise for the rape remark. He never says sorry. So why is he expected to now? In the past, he has been in many sticky situations. Not a murmur of an apology when he poured a beverage on Somy Ali, his then-girlfriend and no, it wasn't in her glass. Not a hint of an apology when he banged on Aishwarya Rai's door until his hand was a bloodied pulp and neighbours' eardrums were a shattered mess. Not a tremor of a sorry when pavement dwellers came under the wheels of his posh car. »

Akshay Kumar to help Bollywood shift focus from biopics to unabashed entertainment with Housefull 3

1 June 2016 1:00 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

It was Akshay Kumar who started it all, and guess it would be Akshay Kumar himself who will put a pause on it all!

When Airlift turned out to be a Superhit early this year and the first realistic drama (with a dash of biopic) to actually enter the 100 crore club, it seemed like there was some good future for the genre at all. Neerja followed it up with a 75 crore+ achievement at the Box Office and suddenly, ‘biopic’ was the buzz word for Bollywood. While many in the industry started announcing biopics (of people known or unknown), the success of Kapoor & Sons started making many believe that realistic cinema was in.

Until the release of Azhar, Sarbjit and Veerappan!

Each of the three films boasts of varied merits and box office performance. Azhar is the most puzzling of them all. One of the very few real life stories which had the blessings, »

Salman Khans dad Salim Khan watches Aishwaryas Sarbjit

25 May 2016 5:57 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

The ice between Salman Khan's family and the Bachchans is rapidly thawing. We recently had Aishwarya commenting positively on a public platform about Salman Khan being selected as India's brand ambassador to the Rio Olympics.

Further thawing in relations between the two families was witnessed on Monday when Salman Khan's father Salim Khan made the effort to see the new Aishwarya Rai Bachchan starrer Sarbjit at a private screening.

Says a source, "The makers were not very sure of how Salim Khan Saab would react to an invitation to watch Sarbjit. He is known to avoid watching her films. But when the Sarbjit producers asked Salim Saab he readily agreed to watch the film and liked the film."

The Khan family has an added reason to be interested in the story as Salman Khan had campaigned to free the real Sarabjit Singh from captivity in Pakistan.

At the premier of Sarbjit it was a sweet gesture by Abhishek no controversy

21 May 2016 5:32 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Controversy always seems to be lurking around the corner especially if you are one of the power couples of Bollywood. A recent incident on the red carpet of the Sarbjit premier had everyone wondering whether Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s marriage was going through a rough patch.

The couple made a special appearance at the Sarbjit premier where they were also joined on the red carpet by Aishwarya’s parents as the family came out in support of her latest film.

Abhishek went on to join his wife as they posed for all the excited paparazzi eagerly waiting for a snapshot of the happy couple. Although Abhishek did join her and pose briefly, he decided to let his wife enjoy the attention she deserved and asked the photogs to focus on Aishwarya as he proceeded to walk away. This gesture seemed to have taken Aishwarya by surprise as she »

“Sarbjit is a Gem” – Subhash K Jha reviews Sarbjit

20 May 2016 5:13 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Seeing some of the scathing reviews for Sarbjit I was tempted to fish out the early reviews of a film released in 1975 which was condemned by critics for being “loud” , “brash”, “plotless” and “over-dramatic”.

That film was Ramesh Sippy’s Sholay.

Sarjbit is no Sholay. Thankfully. But I firmly believe its forceful message on prisoners of politics and its persuasive emotional velocity in the scenes showing the imprisoned man’s sister’s and wife’s suffering, would be acknowledged in retrospect as remnants of a truly remarkable cinematic achievement.

The sister is played by the helplessly beautiful Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who rises valiantly to confront and embrace the sister Dalbir’s anguished and defiant fight to the end to free her brother. This is Dalbir’s story, more than Sarbjit’s. And yet it’s also a film that doesn’t spare us Sarbjit’s anguish.

Sarbjit is not a film that holds itself back. »

Thomas & Friends: The Great Race review – moral goodness, but lacking charm

19 May 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Thomas gets a Jackson Pollock paint job but this CGI phase of the animated train franchise doesn’t measure up to the original low-tech shows

Ah, Thomas! Will you never learn? Once again, the perpetually impetuous tank engine (voiced by John Hasler) gets himself in a bit of bother when he tries a new paint job so he can compete in a best decorated engine contest on the mainland; he ends up looking like a half-finished Jackson Pollock for most of the running time. Luckily, Sodor-newcomer Ashima (Tina Desai), a multicoloured bombshell from India with eyes like Aishwarya Rai, doesn’t seem to mind and sees through the bluster and blunders to Thomas’s innate good nature. While the inclusive, just-be-yourself moral message is didactically sound, this CGI phase of the animated train franchise sorely lacks the charm of the original low-tech shows. The limited, exaggerated expressions on the models »
