Kajol is now officially Kajol Devgn Vidya Balan Kapoor to follow

23 November 2015 4:09 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Rohit Shetty's Dilwale throws forward two interesting developments. Shah Rukh's name comes before Kajol's in the credit titles.

In 2014 Shah Rukh announced his leading lady's name would appear before his in the credit titles. And Deepika Padukone's name did appear before Shah Rukh's in Rohit Shetty's Chennai Express and Farah Khan's Happy New Year.

But now Dilwale carries Kajol's name after Shah Rukh, apparently by mutual consent.

Says a source, "In their fans' subconscious the two of them are...Shah Rukh and Kajol, in that order. Why mess with audiences' perceptions?"

More interestingly with Dilwale, Kajol has taken on her husband's surname. After being married to Ajay Devgn for 16 years Kajol is now officially Kajol Devgn in Dilwale.

Incidentally, 27 years ago Kajol's husband Ajay had done a film called Dilwale. Now it's Mrs Devgn's turn.

Says a source, "During all these »

Sanjay Leela Bhansali is one filmmaker whose films always promise to be larger than life and rich in grandeur and colour. His upcoming film Bajirao Mastani is no different. Till now, whatever one has seen of the film, be it the 'looks' of its lead star cast viz. Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone or the film's posters, everything has been nothing short of being 'grand'.

This time round, Bollywood Hungama brings to you the first look of the film's new song named 'Pinga' that features the stunning duo of Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone (in traditional Marathi avatars) who will be seen dancing to the track. If the adjoining image of the track is anything to go by, then, one can only imagine how the full song will look like! The song has been choreographed by Remo D' Souza.

Readers may recall that, even in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Devdas, »

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been paid fully for Jazbaa sequel being worked on

6 November 2015 2:34 AM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Has Aishwarya Rai Bachchan not been paid fully for her work in Sanjay Gupta's Jazbaa? While there are rumours floating around the payment issue between Aishwarya and her Jazbaa director Sanjay Gupta the truth is ,she has been paid her full price and has absolutely no complaints whatsoever on the payment issue.

A source close to Aishwarya reveals, "We don't know where these stories come from. There is no truth to them at all. Aishwarya had agreed to work for a certain amount which she was paid. Since she was also a producer on the project she was entitled to a part of the profits over and above the remuneration. Since the film made no profits, she was naturally not paid anything above her basic remuneration. There is absolutely no monetary issue between Aishwarya and Sanjay Gupta. In fact they are now discussing a sequel." »

Sanjay Guptas next Ek Tha Gangster to feature Abhishek Bachchan

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. »

Get the look of your favourite Bollywood star by Asgar Saboo

1. The Blowout as seen on Aishwarya Rai

This is a classic style that will suit everyone and make you feel and look luxurious. First you need to divide your hair into sections and apply a heat protecting spray or serum, as you want the hair to feel silky and soft. Always blow dry your roots first, which is essential for adding as much volume as possible. Consider your haircut to decide what type of blow out you want – If your hair is all one length, a sleek blow dry might suit you better, and if you have a cut with lots of layers, consider having a few bounces and curls towards the end to show them off. Always work in small sections, preferably two-inch sections to get the salon-like blow out. Also, make sure that the nozzle is pointed downwards and that it isn’t too close to your hair, »

Filmmakers and celebrities at times seem to be embroiled in various run-ins with the law. The latest is that an Fir has been lodged against veteran filmmaker Rahul Rawail and his son for trespassing, intent to insult the modesty of a woman and for intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace.

Further adding to a written complaint filed by Thiya a week ago, she also claims that on October 10, at 2.30 am Rawail and his son barged into Thiya's apartment when she was with two friends to fight with her for throwing garbage outside her window which landed on his air-condition duct.

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 »

Essel Vision backs out of three film deal with Sanjay Gupta

13 October 2015 3:50 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Earlier we had reported that Essel Vision, the creative and production studio of Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd (Zee), announced a multi-film deal to make its foray into mainstream commercial Hindi films, with Sanjay Gupta's White Feather Films, of which the first was the recently released Aishwarya Rai Bachchan - Irrfan Khan starrer Jazbaa. However, now we hear that Essel Vision has apparently backed out of the deal. In fact we hear that the reason Essel Vision backed out was the poor Roi (Return On Investment) of Jazbaa at the box office, taking into consideration the cost of production as well as recoveries the film has had till date, due to it failing to entice the audience. Compounding the film's lack luster performance (as per their estimates), the previous week's release Talvar and the Hollywood release The Walk went a long way in damaging Jazbaa's overall box office appeal. »

We hear Anushka Sharma has had a blast while shooting for her forthcoming Karan Johar film, Ae Dil Hain Mushkil.

Having finished the film’s first schedule, she is flying back to Mumbai for a frantic seven days of work! Apparently there is no time to relax for this very much in demand star. Anushka will be completing her brand related shoots and other commitments and will also conduct meetings for her next home production during this week.

Once that is done it is back work on Ae Dil Hain Mushkil and the location shoot in London to complete the rest of the highly anticipated film, which features Anushka opposite Ranbir Kapoor and co-stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan! »

“It is a very powerful statement on violence against and the safety of women” – Subhash K Jha reviews Jazbaa

11 October 2015 8:17 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

In a film that works both on a physical and emotional level, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan returns as a working mother, working to balance career with domestic responsibilities. When hotshot lawyer Anuradha Varma’s only daughter is kidnapped during school sports day. Anuradha is stricken with guilt for not spending more time with her child. It’s a prevalent dilemma for working women, and Sanjay Gupta who has so far focused attention on sexy item bombs and sexier guns opens up a debate on the travails of the working woman with flair and gusto, never allowing the thrills to override the somber underbelly of the plot.

Gupta brings flamboyance flourish and a restless energy to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s agile yet feminine role of a mother desperately seeking her daughter. In some ways I was reminded of Anurag Kashyap’s Ugly where a daughter is kidnapped. Kashyap’s film was much darker and ominous. »
