When Mumtaz met Mumtaz – Ouatimd Iftaar Party

11 August 2013 9:13 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Prachi Desai, who played Mumtaz, Shoaib’s (Emraan Hashmi) beautiful love interest in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai (2010) was gutted about not being cast in the sequel, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobaara.

As Shoaib’s character grew in age and turned from a boy to man, Akshay Kumar was cast. It followed that there had to be a change in the casting of Mumtaz too. Ekta Kapoor and Milan Luthria convinced Sonali Bendre Behl, who has similar facial characteristics to Prachi, to return to the silver screen after a decade. (She was last seen in a cameo in Kal Ho Naa Ho.)

Sonali’s brief but impact-ful role in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Dobaara is already the topic of discussion.

At the recent Ouatimd Iftaar Daawat held at a suburban Mumbai hotel, Ekta Kapoor managed a coup by bringing the old and new Mumtaz (Prachi Desai »

Who’s Hot Who’s Not: Ekta Kapoor’s Iftar Bash

8 August 2013 3:00 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Bollywood film promotion unshamefully has no bounds. Recently Ekta Kapoor threw a lavish Iftar Party to promote her upcoming production, Once Upon a Time In Mumbai Dobara. But we’re more interested in the fashion on the red carpet. B-Town attended with all their glitz and glamour. Good glitz and glamour or bad glitz and glamour, well that is for me to know and you to find out!

Prachi Desai

Going the Disney Princess route was Prachi Desai in a Sonam and Paras Modi in a floor length anarkali. The anarkali is quite striking but I’m not quite sure where the dupatta for the anarkali went and whilst I usually don’t mind it, the outfit and the occasion demanded for one. I wish Prachi had gone for different hair also.

Verdict: Luke warm

Shamita Shetty

Shamita went for a bright pink Masaba embroidered kurta and cow print pants. »

Subhash K Jha: “Policegiri is all loud, rumbustious, over-the-top fun to watch – especially if you are a Sanjay Dutt fan”

6 July 2013 8:23 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Starring: Sanjay Dutt, Prakash Raj, Prachi Desai

Directed by K Ravi Kumar

Look. Indian cinema is like a massive bouquet of wildflowers of different colours and smells. You really can’t judge Policegiri, Sanjay Dutt’s hefty homage to hero-giri completed before his 3-year prison terms, against the soft gently-undulating movements of the week’s other release Lootera. If Vikramaditya Motwane’s film is soft-petalled rose Policegiri is a wild cactus flower from the desert.

Why cactus? The landscape is populated with pricks, you see.

It’s roaring 12-gun salute to the traditional mainstream cinema’s ongoing obsession with the corruption-cleansing cop who goes on a rampage. The anti-establishment figure from Prakash Mehra’s Zanjeer has been slyly transformed into the Khaki-coloured law-enforcer with shades of grey .

Like Ajay Devgn in Singham Akshay Kumar in Rowdy Rathore and Salman Khan in Dabangg, Dutt in Policegiri is a morally ambivalent do-gooder »

Lootera all set to grow on word of mouth, Policegiri counts on Sanju power

4 July 2013 2:16 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Sonakshi Sinha is in for some real interesting weekend ahead. After working in five back to back hero-centric films (Dabangg, Rowdy Rathore, Joker, Son of Sardaar, Dabangg 2), four of which crossed the 100 crore mark, she would now be seen in her first ever outing which has both her and hero in equal measures. Even for Ranveer, this is an acid test of sorts since after being seen as a flamboyant personality in Band Baaja Baraat followed by Ladies v/s Ricky Behl, he would be seen in a much sober avatar on screen. What has caught attention so far is the simplicity factor in this Vikramaditya Motwane affair. If the promos are any indication, this one appears to be a classy outing in the offering. This also means that the film would find maximum patronage, at least to begin with, in premium multiplexes at major cities with all India opening in the 50% range. »

Sanjay Dutt to help Uttarakhand victims

1 July 2013 5:10 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Despite being jailed, Sanjay Dutt is trying to do his bit for the Uttarakhand victims. While the makers of Policegiri were keen on promoting the film in Dubai, Dutt took this as an opportunity to help the ones in pain. The actor, who was recently imprisoned, wrote a letter to wife Maanyata saying that instead of spending the money on promotions, they should organize a charity event and collect funds for the Uttarakhand flood victims. Policegiri producer Rahul Aggarwal, who is impressed with Sanjay's big-heartedness, says, "It's very touching that Sanjay actually decided to collect funds for these victims rather than promoting the movie in Dubai." Adding further, Aggarwal, who is also involved with the Write2Sanjay initiative says, "This is not the first time he has been involved in charity. During Tsunami too, Sanjay had raised about Rs. 2 crores for the victims." Also being the well wishers of Sanjay Dutt, »

PCs cousin Meera Chopra in the next 1920

17 April 2013 4:28 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

About a year back, we heard news that Priyanka Chopra's other cousin would soon be making a foray into films. Now comes the confirmed news that Meera Chopra will be seen making her debut in Vikram Bhatt's third installment of the 1920 franchise. Initially though, the film was supposed to feature Prachi Desai, however the actress opted out of the project citing date issues. This came post the Sc ruling that sent the schedules of the Sanjay Dutt starrer Policegiri in a tizzy. Prachi's sudden departure from the project prompted the makers to rope in Meera for the said role. The film which is scheduled to go on floor in May is co-written by Vikram and debutant Sukhmani Sadana and will be directed by yet another debutant Tinu Suresh Desai. »
