18 March 2015 5:49 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

After an extensive shoot schedule in Kashmir, the cast and crew of Fitoor are currently completing a major part of the film in Delhi. During the shoot, however, there was a small accident on the sets of the film. Apparently, Katrina Kaif was supposed to drive a convertible in one of the scenes of the film. But without realizing that one of the doors of the car is open, Katrina started driving it with a camera set in front of it. Suddenly, the crew's attention turned towards the sound of loud crash when the opened door of the car had smashed into one of the walls. Recollecting the incident, Katrina mentioned that she was taken aback by the sudden turn of events but it was Aditya Roy Kapur's behavior that left her mighty surprised. Terming her co-star Aditya as a 'method' actor, Kat added that while the entire crew was concerned of her safety, »

Watch: Breathtaking Supercut Celebrates The Work Of Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki

4 March 2015 11:25 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Emmanuel Lubezki might not be a household name the way Brad PittGeorge Clooney, or Ben Affleck are, but he’s worked with all those A-listers and countless others during the course of his impressive 30-year career behind the camera. A multi-award winner with such films as “The Tree of Life,” “Ali,” “Children of Men,” “Y Tu Mamá También,” and “The Birdcage” under his belt, he is one of the best cinematographers working today. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recognized his talents yet again this year, though this time in historic fashion; he became only the fifth ever cinematographer to win back-to-back Oscars (for “Birdman” and “Gravity”). The man’s work is just amazing. In a mere four and a half minutes, one Vimeo user, has paid gorgeous tribute to Lubezki. Combining snippets from the above films, as well as “Great Expectations,” “Meet Joe Black,” “Burn After Reading, »

Complete Buffy reviews: Pangs

28 January 2015 11:54 AM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

We've had Christmas. We've had Halloween. Now it's the turn of the Thanksgiving special episode to take a seat in Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Pangs is the story in question – fans of both this series and Angel had a teaser of sorts in the concluding moments of the previous Angel episode, The Bachelor Party. Angel's friend, Doyle had one of those mind-cracking visions which paved the way for Buffy to make her first cameo appearance in the spin-off show. So what better opportunity to bring Angel temporarily back to Sunnydale?

"The mantra of “Want. Take. Have” doesn't belong in this season of Buffy, and Pangs explores this wistful notion in greater detail."

It's a common theme of this episode in that the characters are experiencing pangs for things or people that are far out of their reach. Buffy wants a nice normal family Thanksgiving, but can't have the real »

Is Rahul Bhat playing Bilawal Bhutto in Fitoor

22 January 2015 9:56 PM, PST | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

If sources are to be believed, the Ugly actor Rahul Bhat would be playing a character very similar to Bilawal Bhutto Zardari in Abhishek Kapoor's Fitoor. Says a source close to the project, "The character is that of a young Pakistani politician from a powerful political family. Rahul Bhat has been asked to model his looks and clothes on Bilawal." While the actor refrained from comment a source in-the-know informs, "Rahul's character is named Bilaal and he is very much like Bilawal. He is paired opposite Katrina Kaif." It remains to be seen how a politician from Pakistan in Kashmir is shown to be affiliated to Charles Dickens' Great Expectations, the source for Fitoor. But if Shakespeare's Macbeth can fit into Vishal Bhardwaj's Kashmir in Haider why not Dickens in Kashmir? »
