Snapdeal drops Aamir Khan as brand ambassador

13 hours ago

It seems that the statement on 'intolerance' made by Aamir Khan a while back has come back to haunt the actor. In fact, we hear that the Indian e-commerce website Snapdeal has decided not to renew Aamir Khan's contract as brand ambassador of the company, once it ends later this month. Apparently the said contract that was signed a year back was extendable; however Snapdeal isn't keen on renewing the same. Further it is also learnt that after dropping Aamir, Snapdeal may not replace the actor with another celebrity as it looks to rationalize ad expenditure and focus instead on repeat customers, enhancing categories and trying to encourage buyers to shop through its FreeCharge wallet. With this news, it will be the second time that a brand has dropped Aamir as their ambassador after the government decided to replace Khan for Incredible India with Amitabh Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra as their brand faces. »

Who is trying to derail Salman Khans Sultan

3 February 2016 2:39 AM, PST

Malicious stories suggesting that Salman Khan has stopped shooting for his next film Sultan, are simply not true.

Apparently, Salman has been shooting non-stop for Sultan, except for two days last week.

Says a source close to the project, "Salman only took two days off to shoot for the Bigg Boss finale. The rest of the time he's shooting for us. So we don't know how these stories of our Eid release being derailed are being spread, and by whom."

Incidentally the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees also releases for this year's Eid. Traditionally the Eid slot has been reserved for Salman starrers.

A source close to the director Ali Abbas Zafar pooh-poohs all the stories about "differences" between producer Aditya Chopra and Salman Khan.

"What differences? Adi Chopra doesn't even come on the sets of Sultan! Once Ali started shooting, Adi left the film in the director's hands. These »

Look who has replaced Salman Khan in the Revital ad

2 February 2016 11:04 PM, PST

Readers will be fully aware of the fact that Bollywood's most eligible bachelor aka Salman Khan, who has always been making news, for both professional and personal reasons, has just recently wrapped up the latest season of the famous reality show 'Bigg Boss'. While Salman Khan still continues to be a big draw amongst the filmmakers, the latest news (as per Bollywood Hungama's reliable sources) is he has been dropped from endorsing the health supplement 'Revital', a brand with which he was associated for a long time now. And the person who has replaced Salman Khan in the 'Revital' ad is none other than India's 'Captain Cool' M.S. Dhoni. Even though we, at Bollywood Hungama, don't know the actual or the real reason behind the replacement, we only assume that with the most awaited upcoming cricket season that's about to start, maybe the brand wanted to 'replace' cricket with Bollywood. »
