4 hours ago

The intellectual filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt came to promote his upcoming movie Khamoshiyan at Glamsham.com office along with actors Gurmeet Choudhary, Sapna Pabbi and Ali Fazal.

Speaking about his movie, Mahesh Bhatt said, “Khamoshiyan has flowered from Vikram Bhatt’s heart. It’s his brainchild. And then I gave the haversack to Ali and said ‘Ah! This guy looks like the guy of today.’ Neither I nor Vikram had thought of him to portray his part.”

Talking about the change in portrayal of women on celluloid, he said, “During my times, women lived in a patriarchal society. Today, even though women have come out, there’s a cry for gender equality.”

Box Office – Erotic-supernatural Khamoshiyan takes on fantastical Hawaizaada and dramatic Rahasya

6 hours ago

Three interesting films belonging to diverse genres clash at the box office this weekend. In fact each of these has a distinct subject which makes them a candidate good enough for a theater viewing. Khamoshiyan is an erotic-supernatural outing from the house of Bhatts. Hawaizaada is an untold story of an Indian who created world’s first unmanned plane. On the other hand Rahasya is apparently a fictional account of Arushi Talwar murder case.

From the opening standpoint, Khamoshiyan would get a better start due to brand Vishesh Films as well as hit music. Moreover, the promos have been decent too and have managed to find eyeballs. A young affair, it should find a better opening at the multiplexes. Though one doesn’t foresee mayhem at the box office on the opening day, the word of mouth should help it during the weekend.

As for Hawaizaada, yet again it would »

Speaking about the film, Mr. Bachchan said the following: “A lot of people have been intrigued by the title and the fact that my name and Dhanush’s name has been incorporated in the title means that it has been done for some kind of sensation. That’s not true because Shamitabh comes from the script of the film and when you see the film you will know why it’s there. The other thing that can be said is that I will be giving my voice to Dhanush as a character in the film. »

27 January 2015 9:15 PM, PST

Known for his unique choice of films, Irrfan Khan is one of India’s most acclaimed actors but what sets him apart is his quality to remain completely loyal and committed to his work. This was proven once more when Irrfan turned down a prestigious Hollywood project for director Shoojit Sircar’s upcoming comedy drama Piku—a move the actor absolutely doesn’t regret!

We hear that the talented actor turned down a role in Ridley Scott’s The Martian, co-starring Matt Damon as he had already blocked his dates for the shoot of Piku.
