Vidya Balan becomes the face of World Ethnic Day

5 hours ago | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Vidya Balan, who was once criticized for her fashion faux pas, later, found her identity in traditional wear and since then, the actress has often been spotted wearing sarees at almost every public appearance. While she has promoted films donning attires of her reel life characters, Vidya has always maintained that she is very comfortable with sarees. Now that it has become a fashion statement of the actress, Vidya Balan has been roped in by Craftsvilla.com as the brand ambassador to celebrate World Ethnic Day on June 19. Founder of Craftsvilla.com Manoj Gupta mentioned that there is synergy between the vision of their company and Vidya Balan's thoughts and added that Vidya is one of those few actresses who can make ethnic look cool. On the other hand, Vidya Balan is equally excited about being associated with the brand and called this as 'opportunity' where we all can go back to our roots. »

Mohit Suris Hamari Adhuri Kahani gets U certificate

1 June 2015 5:28 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Hamari Adhuri Kahani has been certified with a U certificate by the censor board. The Mohit Suri directorial that stars Emraan Hashmi, Vidya Balan and Rajkumar Rao in lead roles is an out-and-out love story that tries to define the true meaning of loving someone selflessly. Talking about the film Mohit Suri says, "My film is a complete family movie. It is about love and longing. It questions the known meaning of what love between a man and woman should be because my film shows a married woman fall in love with a man after her husband disappears on her. Even though he returns to her life after many years, he stakes claim over her because they are married. It's a story that makes you think if marriage is the true culmination of love or there is a deeper meaning to love someone selflessly." Hamari Adhuri Kahani is slated for »

25 May 2015 2:38 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

Hamari Adhuri Kahani director Mohit Suri promoted his movie with Vidya Balan and Emraan Hashmi at a radio station. While Vidya Balan was all praises for the movie, Mohit Suri spoke on how the movie has a different story.

Vidya Balan, at the event said, "I haven't done a love story after Parineeta, but this is a beautifully intense love story. I'm glad that I'm part of this film because it's special for me in many ways."

When asked about how Hamari Adhuri Kahani is different, Vidya referred to Mohit Suri, who in turn said, "I think love doesn't have a very different language. If you are saying Hamari Adhuri Kahani isn't popcorn romance, then it is absolutely not popcorn romance. It wasn't there in Aashiqui 2 or Ek Villain either."

24 May 2015 9:25 PM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villain director Mohit Suri has not only won our hearts, but he also seems to have moved his Hamari Adhuri Kahani lead actress Vidya Balan emotionally.

Vidya, while promoting Hamari Adhuri Kahani, praised the filmmaker for his storytelling. She said, "Mohit Suri has that ability to touch, stir, move you through all his films and that's what this film's love story requires.

Sonakshi, Kangana & 7 other Worst Dressed Celebrities of the week

22 May 2015 11:22 PM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

She may be one of the best actresses the Bollywood industry has, but her fashion sense has always been criticized. Yes The Dirty Picture actress Vidya Balan has once again created a fashion disaster, this time not only in her clothes, but also her make-up. This week, however, there have been other (some shocking) Bollywood celebrities who have failed to impress us. Take a look...

Dear Kalki Koechlin, you trying to show your innerwear serves no purpose in levelling up your fashion sense.

Why dubli patli Sonakshi Sinha? Just why!

We love your fashion sense Kangana Ranaut, but such attire is simply not acceptable!

Why did you step out of your house in this outfit Lauren Gottlieb? Please justify!

Oh my, Shraddha Kapoor! You should either get rid of the leather jacket or pair it with denims.

We are totally happy with the fact that Pracchi Desai is in London »

Jeet Gannguli best known for his melodious songs shocked all when he recently made Mahesh Bhatt cry. But it was not because of any problems or issues that he may have caused, instead it was the music director’s soulful title track of Mohit Suri’s upcoming Hamaari Adhuri Kahaani starring Vidya Balan and Emraan Hashmi that had the noted filmmaker in tears. Says a source, “The first time we had seen Bhatt saab cry after listening to a song was in Zakhm’s ‘Galli mein Aaj Chaand Nikla’. And recently when Jeet made him hear the new song for Mohit’s film which is inspired by Bhatt Saab’s life, he had tears in his eyes while he listened to Jeet sing and strum the guitar. He was deeply moved and knowing how keen his music sense is, we are sure the song will be something to look out for. »

Bollywood introductions and endings play a major part in making any movie a memorable one. While some movie endings are almost perfect, we bring you 10 Bollywood movies that we wish had a different ending. However, we do warn you that being Bollywood writers, the endings given are solely based for a happy ending in Bolly town. Take a look...

Gabbar Is Back

The good Gabbar dying wasn't something that a corrupt country deserved. We absolutely wished Gabbar would live and create history!

Ek Paheli Leela

We all were of the assumption that Jay Bhanushali would end up with Sunny Leone, and were kind of surprised and slightly disappointed with the same not happening!

Pk

A cute alien as Aamir Khan should have just stayed back on earth, for Anushka Sharma if not anything else.

Aashiqui 2

Yes, Aditya Roy Kapur could have been a better person, and no he did »

4 May 2015 6:03 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

The Emraan Hashmi-Vidya Balan starrer Hamari Adhuri Kahani trailer that has just released is quite engrossing and caught our attention for various reasons.
