Sikandar Kher is back with a bang!

28 February 2016 9:06 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The recently-released Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive has hit home with the audience and so has Sikandar Kher’s performance in it. The actor, who plays dual characters in the film, has been receiving a lot of praise for both his roles, as David Dosomething and more so for his performance as the potbellied Punjabi Hollywood producer David Chaddha.

Shubhra Gupta from Indian Express says, “The one actor, hard to recognize under all the make-up, who proves to be a complete funster is Sikandar Kher in a ‘double-role’: as the Yank operative assigned to the Osama job chewing on a broad accent which doesn’t drop, as well as the pot-bellied Hollywood ‘producer’ David Chaddha, he is a hoot.”

Deccan Chronicle mentions, “While watching Sikandar Kher’s performance, you wonder where was this talent hidden all these years. Playing David Chaddha, he pulls off the character with »

'Deadpool' Crushes the Box Office Again with $31.5M

28 February 2016 10:43 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For a movie that may not have been made if not for leaked test footage, Deadpool is proved to be a box office gamble that has already paid off in spades. The superhero adventure has taken in $285.6 million domestically and $266.4 million internationally for a global total of $552.1 million. Deadpool will face three new releases at the box office this weekend, Lionsgate's Gods of Egypt, 20th Century Fox's Eddie the Eagle and Open Road Films' Triple 9. Deadpool had no trouble winning for a third weekend in a row, taking in $31.5 million.

While Deadpool has had success beyond most analysts' expectations, its second weekend drop of 57.4% could mean that it may not have as much staying power in theaters. For example, throughout Star Wars: The Force Awakens' 10-week run in theaters, they have only posted a decrease of more than 50% once, and they have consistently managed to drop somewhere in the 30% range almost every weekend, »

No romance, just laughs promises ‘Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive’ director

27 February 2016 1:00 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Bollywood take note, director Abhishek Sharma’s satire, Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive, will take a swipe at your film industry and won’t shy away from tearing it down — one joke at a time.

“Everybody here is only trained to hear good things — something negative is not tolerated. But in the kind of films I make, I love laughing at myself, and that’s how it should be,” Sharma said in a recent interview.

Enter his latest comedy, a spin-off from the 2010 sleeper hit Tere Bin Laden. Set against the backdrop of terrorist Osama Bin Laden’s presumed death, Sharma wove a comedy about the Us government’s desperation to provide proof of Laden’s mysterious capture and killing.

An aspiring Bollywood director aptly named Sharma, played by Indian actor Manish Paul, is called in and commissioned by an American government agent to make a film using Laden’s doppelganger, »

‘Laden’ With The Burden Of Being Funny – Subhash K Jha reviews ‘Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive’

26 February 2016 9:00 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Satirizing terrorism is as tricky as making molar surgery mirthful. Abhishek Sharma did it once in Tere Bin Laden, then fell flat on his farce with a raunchy sexed-up version of Basu Chatterjee’s Shaukeen. So Sharma is back doing what he thinks he is best at.

Generating titters out of terrorism.

And though it has its ha-hee-hee-ho-ho moments, it is not quite the….errr… blast that it promises to be, mainly because the characters behave as though they are in a stand-up comedy act where every actor must…well, act. So everyone is acting all the time…sometimes double-acting because some of the pointedly parodic people, like Sikandar Kher who plays – don’t laugh – a CIA agent masquerading as a Bollywood film producer – lead double lives, alas, failing to generate double laughter.

Farce is clearly not young Kher’s forte, though what is his forte nobody knows.

Actor Sikandar Kher the ‘dark horse’ in Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive

26 February 2016 6:04 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Tere Bin Laden: Dead Or Alive actor, Pradhuman Singh, says that fellow co-actor Sikandar Kher is the dark horse of the upcoming film, courtesy of his intriguing double role in it.

“Sikandar is the dark horse of the film. His character is brilliant. He’s playing a white guy and a Punjabi guy; it’s a kind of a double role – the same person, but he changes his appearance,” Pradhuman says.

While he appears with blonde hair and a foreign accent as a white guy, Sikandar Kher, the son of seasoned Indian actress Kirron Kher, and the step-son of actor Anupam Kher, sports a hairy look and a paunch for his Indian Punjabi avatar in the film.

Pradhuman, who famously essayed ‘Noora’ in the 2010 Tere Bin Laden, says he had “unparalleled fun” while working with Sikandar and Manish Paul in the movie’s sequel. “None of them (the actors) had any insecurity in them. »

'Gods of Egypt', 'Triple 9' & 'Eddie the Eagle' Hit Theaters While 'Deadpool' Threepeats

25 February 2016 8:57 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

After crossing $500 million worldwide this week, Deadpool heads into its third weekend with sights set on another #1 finish as it will become one of the top five, highest grossing R-rated films of all-time. The weekend's new releases vying for a spot elsewhere in the weekend top ten include Summit's Gods of Egypt, Open Road's Triple 9 and Fox's feel good feature Eddie the Eagle. On the heels of a 57.4% drop last weekend, Deadpool should dip around 52% drop or so this weekend, give or take a few percentage points, for a third weekend anywhere from $26-29 million. By the end of the weekend, Deadpool will be approaching a $280 million domestic cume, soon moving ahead of The Matrix Reloaded to become the third highest grossing R-rated release of all-time. Expected to finish second is Summit's Gods of Egypt, though this one is facing some serious scrutiny. Budgeted at a massive $140 million, midweek »

Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive a huge responsibility for Manish Paul

24 February 2016 6:00 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

For Manish Paul, featuring in the sequel of Tere Bin Laden was a huge responsibility. The TV host and actor said he simply gave his best shot to the film. “It was definitely a burden for me. The first part was a sleeper hit. I had to keep in mind several things. But I still did not pay much attention to the burden part because I have a feeling that this film is surely going to repeat history. The script of the film is strong and we had a great time shooting it,” said Manish.

The film stars actors Sikandar Kher and Pradhuman Singh alongside Manish Paul and he adds, “We were like brothers on the set. We never treated each other like co-stars. Working with Abhishek is irritating initially because he does a lot of workshops, which really bug everyone. But we later realised that it helped. He used »

President Obama aware of his impersonator in Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive

23 February 2016 6:00 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

When director Abhishek Sharma began penning a spin-off to his 2010 surprise hit, Tere Bin Laden, alongside his onscreen Osama bin Laden, played by actor Pradhuman Singh, the writer-director started scouting for the perfect actor to play the character of American President, Barack Obama. He instantly knew he had found his man when he came across a video titled ‘President Obama on Death of Osama bin Laden’, which features American rapper-comedian, Iman Crosson, known for satirising the President’s speeches through rap.

“My team got in touch with Iman who’s based in Los Angeles. He flew down to Mumbai and we shot with him on a large set of Abbottabad, recreating the speech and the rap,” said the director Abhishek.

Iman has been invited to the White House on two occasions and has duly impressed the President with his impersonations. In fact, Obama calls him his ‘best mimic’. To top that, »

Can 'Gods of Egypt' Take Down 'Deadpool' at the Box Office?

23 February 2016 9:12 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For a movie that may not have been made if not for leaked test footage, Deadpool is proved to be a box office gamble that has already paid off in spades. The superhero adventure has taken in $236.8 million domestically and $256.2 million internationally for a global total of $493 million, and it will likely cross the $500 million milestone sometime this week. Heading into its third frame in theaters, Deadpool will face three new releases at the box office this weekend, Lionsgate's Gods of Egypt, 20th Century Fox's Eddie the Eagle and Open Road Films' Triple 9. If the projections at Pro.BoxOffice.com are accurate, Deadpool should have no trouble winning for a third weekend in a row.

Ali Zafar reveals details about cameo role in Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive

22 February 2016 6:00 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Pakistani singer and actor Ali Zafar’s cameo role in Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive has many questioning why he wasn’t chosen for the lead role in the upcoming film, the actor explains it was solely because he wanted to opt for something ‘challenging’.

“When the sequel came underway, Abhishek and I were excited about it but as an actor I wanted to try something challenging. So he decided to cast me in an interesting number,” said Ali in a recent interview.

“I felt as an actor I’ve already enacted the role of a reporter in Tere Bin Laden and would want to try something challenging even if it’s a special part. In the west, you would often see even big actors like Brad Pitt or Johnny Depp feature in a surprisingly awkward yet interesting part. That’s the whole idea. Abhishek got excited and »

'Deadpool' Dominates Box Office Again with $55 Million

21 February 2016 9:43 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After breaking box office records in its debut last weekend, most expected Deadpool to remain on top in its second frame, facing three new movies opening in wide release. This unconventional superhero movie squared off against Focus Features' biopic Race, Sony's drama Risen and A24's critically-acclaimed horror-thriller The Witch. But, as expected, the numbers from Box Office Mojo reveal that none of them came close to dethroning the Merc With the Mouth. Deadpool dominated once again with a second-weekend total of $55 million.

While the opening weekend numbers are obviously of critical importance to any movie's success, the second weekend often indicates how much longevity a film may have in theaters. Deadpool is still riding high on plenty of critical buzz (84% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) and positive word-of-mouth. The movie dropped 58.5% in its second weekend, despite being shown in 164 more theaters for a theater count of 3,722. A second-weekend drop »

'Deadpool' Spoofs Kanye, Explains Why He'll Never Host 'SNL'

20 February 2016 11:58 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Saturday Night Live has been in the news a lot these past few days. First, reports that last week's musical guest Kanye West had an insane meltdown right before he was supposed to perform were confirmed by leaked audio of the rapper's epic rant. Then, one enterprising fan decided to launch a change.org petition, asking Lorne Michaels, Ryan Reynolds, the Saturday Night Live production staff and NBC to bring the actual character of Deadpool to Studio 8H so that he could host the show. Both buzz worthy stories now collide thanks to a viral video from social media maestro himself, and star of Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds.

In its storied history, only Paul Reubens has ever stayed in character for an entire episode of Saturday Night Live, with Pee-wee Herman hosting way back in 1985. And it doesn't sound like that is about to change anytime soon. In his video tirade, »

Kanye West and Deadpool have a lot more in common than you'd think. Ryan Reynolds, in character as his foul-mouthed antihero, posted a Nsfw video on Friday spoofing West's now-infamous rant from backstage at Saturday Night Live. (Warning, the language is very Nsfw.) "Listen up, Lorne Michaels. SNL took my f---ing Life of Pablo album without asking. Now I'm bummed," he says in the video, which includes several pictures parodying SNL's signature bumper photos.

Can 'Deadpool' Win Its Second Weekend at the Box Office?

16 February 2016 9:31 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With a slew of superhero movies set to arrive later this year, 20th Century Fox's Deadpool has already set the bar incredibly high for box office expectations. Despite, or perhaps because of, its R-rated nature, Deadpool destroyed several box office records, taking in $135 million in its opening weekend, the highest opening weekend for any R-rated movie and the best debut ever for a 20th Century Fox movie. Heading into its second frame, this unconventional superhero movie squares off against three new releases, Focus Features' biopic Race, Sony's drama Risen and A24's critically-acclaimed horror-thriller The Witch, none of which stand a chance of taking down the Merc With the Mouth.
