Box Office – Ajay Devgn – Prabhu Dheva set to throw a punch with Action Jackson

4 December 2014 6:35 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

After Happy New Year, none of the new releases has done well at the box office. In fact November has turned out to be one of the poorest ever for Bollywood in last few years. Hence, all eyes are on the first release of December, Action Jackson, to bring in some revival of sorts for the industry. It is pretty much required as well since good run for a film only fetches audience for the next that hits the screens. Now since sentiments amongst audience have been so disturbed for last few weeks that it is ending up impacting even the opening day of so many films where there are no footfalls being registered whatsoever.

All of this means that the opening of the Ajay Devgn-Sonakshi Sinha starrer is being awaited with bated breath. A lot is riding on the film, also due to the fact that it »

Subhash Ghai denies selling Khalnayak rights to Bhansali

22 October 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

A news report that Subhash Ghai's Khalnayak, the 1993 ominous thriller about a terrorist on the run which was released when the leading man Sanjay Dutt was imprisoned, will be remade by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, turns out to be completely false. Sources say that Bhansali who has just started shooting his ambitious historical Bajirao Mastani has no time or attention for any other project. Two of Ghai's blockbusters Hero and Ram Lakhan have been purchased to be remade by Salman Khan and Karan Johar, respectively. While welcoming the move by eminent filmmakers to revamp his successful films, Ghai says, "I respect Sanjay Leela Bhansali as a unique filmmaker who has also proved himself as an independent producer with Rowdy Rathore and Mary Kom. But I have not made up my mind about selling the remake rights of Khalnayak. Let's wait and see. Having said that, I must admit I »

Tamannaah Bhatia bags three major biggies down South

15 September 2014 3:10 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Though she had two back to back Hindi releases in the form of Humshakals and Entertainment, she hadn't signed any new Hindi film. Hence, one wondered about her career plans ahead. However, Tamannaah Bhatia continues to be one busy girl. She is back in South shooting for as many as three films, which are in different stages of production, hence ensuring that she would be pretty much occupied for next 10-12 months at the least. One is a Telugu film Aagadu where she is opposite none other than superstar Mahesh Babu. Even bigger is her bilingual film (in Tamil and Telugu) Baahubali which is pitched as the biggest and the costliest film to be coming out of South. It is directed by S.S. Rajamouli whose Vikramarkudu and Maryada Ramanna were remade as Rowdy Rathore and Son of Sardaar while another blockbuster Magadheera is set to be made in Hindi too. »

Arjun Kapoor talks about Finding Fanny

11 September 2014 9:11 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Bollywood star Arjun Kapoor is excited about his forthcoming release Finding Fanny opposite Deepika Padukone, releasing in cinemas through 20th Century Fox.

Directed by Homi Adajania and produced by Dinesh Vijain (the team behind 2012 super hit Cocktail), Finding Fanny is the story of five dysfunctional characters from Goa on a road trip to search for the long lost love of Ferdie played by Naseeruddin Shah.

In this interview Kapoor talks about the film and much more:

How are you feeling as Finding Fanny is about to release worldwide as it’s not a typical Bollywood movie?

Honestly, I am quite excited. Primarily because I think that the audience is ready to accept such a movie. For every Rowdy Rathore there is also a Kahaani that does well. We are in a good phase as our audience is ready to watch anything that connects with them. That is what I have realised. »

10 July 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

The Prabhu Dheva directed film Rowdy Rathore that released in 2012 featuring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha, was a turning point in Akshay's career. Ending his dry spell at the box office, Rowdy Rathore kick started Akshay's journey to the coveted Rs. 100 crore club. Now two years later, we hear that the film which was a remake of the Telugu film Vikramarkudu, is all set to have a sequel. In fact the sequel will yet again have Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Shabina Khan teaming up to produce the same. The decision to make a sequel to the film was taken last week and once again the film will top line Akshay as the main lead and be directed by Prabhu Dheva. However the rest of the cast is yet to be locked. The filming of Rowdy Rathore 2 will commence only next year. Currently the makers are in the process of locking a script for the film. »

Akshay’s ‘Holiday’ expected to edge past ‘Jai Ho’ as biggest of 2014

21 June 2014 6:32 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Holiday’ has crossed the 100 crore mark, hence turning out to be another century grosser of the year after ‘Jai Ho’ and ’2 States’. By the look of things, the Akshay Kumar starrer is all set to be the highest collecting film for the year so far, what with a very good second week indicating positive trending for the A.R. Murugadoss affair.

Released early this year, ‘Jai Ho’ went on to nett 116 crore with the 100 crore mark being achieved in 10 days flat. Later ’2 States’ too managed around 105 crore though it took the film 24 days to hit the century. Now with ‘Holiday’ set for a 100 crore run in 15 days flat, it is all set to cross ’2 States’ in the third weekend itself and then expect a good run in days to come.

Of course it faces challenge from Sajid Khan’s ‘Humshakals’ with Saif Ali Khan and Riteish Deshmukh which is seeing the »

Akshay Sonakshi keep Holiday 100 crore bash on hold

19 June 2014 7:36 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Holiday is all set to touch 100 crore tomorrow and it is a matter of celebration for all involved. The entire team felt that it was just apt to throw a bash in order to celebrate the event. However, all of that has been put on hold due to absence of two critical players - Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha.

"Both of them are out of Mumbai for almost a month. While Akshay is in Mauritius for a family holiday (though he is also shooting intermittently for Shaukeen there), Sonakshi is busy shooting for her upcoming films and would return only around 10th July. Though Vipul Shah as well as Reliance, who have produced the film, felt that it was a good idea to celebrate the success of Holiday, they didn't feel right to do so in absence of both the lead actors," informs our source.

For everyone associated with the film though, »

Box Office – ‘Holiday’ set for a 100 crore run, ‘Filmistaan’ shows promise

13 June 2014 4:24 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Akshay Kumar can now cheer aloud. His ‘Holiday’ is now well on course to enter the 100 crore club, what with around 68 crore coming in the first week itself. What makes this A.R. Murugadoss directed film special is the fact that it has been well accepted by the audience with some good to very good appreciation coming in, hence also resulting in repeat viewing. One of the rare films to do well across A, B and C centers with multiplexes as well as single screen audience giving it a nod of approval, ‘Holiday’ is all set to be a good box office success of the year.

For Akshay, this is great news indeed as after ‘Rowdy Rathore’ and ‘Housefull 2′, this is going to be his third 100 crore earner. The film has sustained beyond a good opening and that must be music to his ears. As for Sonakshi Sinha, she has »

Box Office – Akshay’s ‘Holiday’ is one of his biggest; ‘Filmistaan’ sees growth

9 June 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

It was expected that ‘Holiday’ would open well and see its collections consolidate over the weekend. Also, it was predicted that the film’s collections during the first three days would be around 40 crore. This is exactly what happened as this A.R. Murugadoss directed film saw good traction coming its way from the audience. The film had a gradual growth on a day by day basis, which was pretty much expected out of this genre.

As a result, eventually 41 crore came in for this Vipul Shah production and now all eyes are how the weekdays perform. Unlike quick-fire entertainers that bring in majority of moolah in their first few days itself and then taper down, ‘Holiday’ comes with good strength of finding consistent audience on weekdays as well. Moreover, with no competition whatsoever in its week of release and ‘Fugly’ being the only new release next, ‘Holiday’ has the stage »
