We are back with another look at what happened on Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa! This week’s show opened with the international judge Maksim Chmerkovskiy dancing to the song ‘Criminal’ from Ra One. The audience really loved his performance, as it was the first time Maksim had danced solo on the show.
Host Ranvir, then tricked the contestants into a “pass the parcel” game, by throwing them a mirror ball and saying that whoever caught the ball, would go directly into the face-off. But judge Karan Johar used his “jhoothameter” and said that Ranvir was fooling around, the mirror ball would say who was safe from the eliminations.
This week’s theme was Made in India which meant the contestants would be performing on dance styles that originated from India.
Actor Ashish Sharma & his choreographer Shampa were the first to perform. They danced on the song ‘Har Kisi Ko Nahin Milta’ from the film Boss. »

Check out the first look of Ayushmann Khurrana’s upcoming film Hawaizaada, previously titled as Bombay Fairytale. Directed by debutant Vibhu Puri and opposite Pallavi Sharda, the period film is a biopic of scientific Shivkar Bapuji Talpade, who is believed to have constructed and flown India’s first unmanned airplane in 1985, eight years before the Wright brothers.
It was the actress of Besharam who posted the still on Twitter along with the release date of the film, “Glimpse of Ayushmann Khurrana in his vintage Shivkar Talpade avatar for our upcoming film Hawaaizaada…Releasing Oct. 10!”
The picture shows Ayushmann as Shivkar Talpade while he observes one of his plane prototypes. As a source closed to the production explained, the scientist experimented with several types of planes until he succeeded to make one of them fly.
The film is set in Mumbai during the 1880s, so a great effort to capture the »

Mumbai, March 23: Indian-Australian actress Pallavi Sharda, who made her Bollywood debut with "Besharam", is happy being part of the Hindi filmdom and says the West doesn't look down upon the industry.
"I am extremely happy being part of Bollywood or being called a Hindi film actress. As far as West is concerned, they enjoy Bollywood and they don't look down upon Bollywood," Pallavi told Ians.
"Bollywood is cool in the West, especially the song and dance. But yes, sometimes-western filmmakers find it cliched and less crafted. I come from western school and I have been raised in the west, so I think every cinema has. »

Mumbai, March 7: Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, who plays Sonam Kapoor's father in debutant director Nupur Asthana's "Bewakoofiyaan" says he isn't likely to be seen in any "stereotypical" fatherly roles as he finds them "too unexciting".
"If you notice, I didn't play my own son's (Ranbir) father in 'Besharam'. It is not vanity, just sanity. I can't do the stereotypical father's role. They don't challenge me as an actor at all. So I avoid doing father's roles. It's just too unexciting," said the 61-year-old.
"To my good fortune I am getting roles that do not require me to be the so-called father," he added.

Last Sunday, Emraan Hashmi along with Mahesh Bhatt entertained us with a brilliant talk on the couch of Koffee with Karan Season 4, and this weekend KJo brought old guests Shahid Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha back for some more filmy talk. Read on to know what they think about relationships, success and more!
Sonakshi Sinha surely didn’t change her otherwise set image of being the ‘goody two shoes’ and you could really see Karan Johar trying to bring something out of her. She stuck to her ‘I go to the set on time, shoot and then go back home’ words. She found some new respect when she did wonders as Paakhi in Lootera, about which she said,” I am so glad that Vikramaditya gave me Paakhi, a character that was so dear to him. I had to do that!” Sonakshi has always been on the curvy side, to which she »

Mumbai, Jan 22: Actress Pallavi Sharda, a trained Bharatnatyam dancer, is eager to shake a leg in a dance number.
The actress, who made her Bollywood debut with "Besharam", feels that the word "item number" sounds "negative" and added: "There are so many actresses who are doing some beautiful songs as guest dancers. I would love to do an interesting dance number. In fact, it's the one thing that I am craving for."
"Besharam" was Abhinav Kashyap's second directorial venture after Salman Khan starrer super hit "Dabangg", but he failed to create the same magic with Ranbir Kapoor. The romantic-comedy turned turtle at the. »

2013 has had some fantastic films from the passionate Ram-Leela to the dramatic Kai Po Che. There have of course been some majorly disappointing films. These either had fantastic trailers which showed promised of exciting cinema, or boasted star casts that would surely choose only the best of scripts. Take a look at the over-hyped films that brought nothing but heart-breaking sadness to the filmi buffs globally.
We were expecting a little bit of action, a little bit of comedy and little bit of romance. Tigmanshu Dhulia, director of the fantastic Paan Singh Tomar, sadly lets us down with this directorial venture. The dialogues are disappointing, the music is forgettable and draws the film out unnecessarily and the story is quite unbelievable. Sorry Saif, better luck next time.

Race 1 was a stylish movie with fast-paced action and beautiful international locations. Race 2 maintains the style, some nice locations, »

2013 was an exciting year for BollySpice, with our reporters speaking to many of your favourite Bollywood stars across the world, from New York, to London, to Mumbai and beyond. We thought we should do a quick recap of some of our interviews from 2013 to see in the new year, with our promise to bring you bigger and better interviews in 2014. So here’s five of our favourites, in no particular order – as they were all great!
We met Hrithik and Priyanka in London for their promotions of Krrish 3. Both the stars were in a particularly hyperactive mood and were literally bouncing off one another! What made the interview though was a lesson from them in ‘Bro-codes’, where they refused to give in to our challenges of pitting Krrish the superhero against other contemporary superheros and instead gave us the virtues of the bro-code and »

The year 2013 wasn’t without its awful dreck, unlistenable songs, and dreadfully earnest star sons trying their hand at acting. It was also the year where trumpeting your own horn (looking at you Mr Sajid Khan!) proved to an ironically bad choice, promotion tours became exhaustively boring, and albums that made our ears bleed. There were many terrible films and debuts that made us cringe, and shake our fists at the wasted potential. Here once again are the Bollywood Razzies of 2013.
Awful Actress – Pallavi Sharda
It was quite astonishing that Sharda managed to bodge up a dream debut with Ranbir Kapoor in Besharam. While the film was hyped to be a rollicking comedy, Sharda was picked out from the crop of Bollywood actresses for Abhinav Kashyap’s film away from Dabangg mania. Sharda looked completely uncomfortable in her big role, where the three Kapoors tried to salvage the crumbling story and bad writing. »
