Will Ranbir Kapoor's Jagga Jasoos face a similar fate like Bombay Velvet?

15 June 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

While his personal life is blossoming with love (as he is reportedly in relationship with Katrina Kaif), it seems our Bollywood heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor's career is going through a rough patch! After three back-to-back duds like Besharam, Roy and Bombay Velvet, looks like Ranbir's other projects are also getting jinxed. Well, we are talking about his upcoming film Jagga Jasoos, which is being helmed by Barfi maker Anurag Basu.

Much like Bombay Velvet, Ranbir's Jagga Jasoos also has been constantly delayed. Even the latest buzz in trade suggests that Jagga Jasoos has been pushed to next year (June) for release, as major portions of the film are being reshot. Like Bombay Velvet, Jagga Jasoos has been in news for various controversies. Right from Ranbir getting upset with the film shaping up to differences with his directors. Besides, a couple of days back reports were rife that Govinda has backed »

Rishi Kapoor reacts to the Ranbir Kapoor Roast at Iifa

13 June 2015 3:02 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Bollywood's self-appointed resident wag Arjun Kapoor let out a few stinging salvos at Ranbir Kapoor for his recent flops namely Roy and Bombay Velvet at the recently-concluded Iifa in Kuala Lampur. Ranbir's father Rishi Kapoor took the satirical slight in his stride with a stinging retort saying, "I don't know what exactly Arjun said. But whatever it was, it's all right yaar. It is okay to run down anyone for a few laughs on this industry." Continued the concerned father, "Ranbir is going through that phase in his career when he is facing flak for his choice of films, and rightly so. He has made some mistakes. Ranbir will emerge a stronger wiser and a more learned actor after his suicidal career decisions." Seeing the lighter side of Arjun's barbs at Iifa, Rishi says, "Chill, yaar. All of us actors have to go through lean phases. It's part and parcel »

Box Office – Ranbir (Bombay Velvet) and Deepika (Piku) now head for Tamasha

22 May 2015 11:00 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Bombay Velvet has created a record of amassing biggest losses of all times. With a poor opening, practically no word of mouth and zero patronage during the weekdays, it was a nosedive for the Anurag Kashyap directed film. With the filmmaker pretty much admitting the film’s failure before the end of weekend itself, the writing was clear on the wall. The film’s fate can be gauged by the fact that its first week total of 21 crore is less than Day One collections of Ranbir Kapoor’s Besharam, which too was a flop. In fact it is even lesser than the first two days collections of Roy.

While much is being said about Bombay Velvet impacting Ranbir Kapoor’s stardom, it is not going to be the case. A film’s failure impacts most when a fan-base watches the film and rejects it. However, Bombay Velvet wasn’t even seen by anyone, »

Will Tamasha & Ae Dil Hai Mushkil break the jinx for Ranbir Kapoor?

21 May 2015 6:37 AM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

After Besharam and Roy, Bombay Velevt is Ranbir Kapoor's third film in a row that bombed at Box-office. And it has certainly shaken the actor, who has been applauded for his sterling performances and gave some really good films in the past.

Ranbir recently in one of the interviews poured his heart out saying that 'there's a sense of insecurity and I don't know what's happening with my career'. While we definitely understand the plight of his mind and the ongoing situations, all we have to say is there is a dawn after every dusk! There is still more to go and look forward to. The charming actor doesn't need to lose heart and hope.

If we look at his future projects, then Ranbir has three interesting films lined up namely Tamasha, Jagga Jasoos and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. While Jagga Jasoos is bit delayed (and it was even »

Box Office – Bombay Velvet defies all predictions, proves to be a Disaster

17 May 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The prediction has failed, and how. In this column it was stated that Bombay Velvet would go on to net at least 10 crore on Day One. The barometer for such reasonable numbers, though not great by any means, was the opening of Roy which had stepped into double digits despite Ranbir being in a supporting role. However, all such predictions hit South when the D-day arrived. Though it had seemed that the Anurag Kashyap starrer would at least manage a face saving opening, none of that turned out to be true, what with empty houses greeting those select few who started stepping in sporadically.

Though it had seemed that the collections would improve as shows progressed in the evening, there was no respite as the word of mouth started trickling in. The film was hit on both counts, what with no opening and then poor word of mouth as well. »

11 Bollywood actors who fail to leave a mark in today's times

29 March 2015 11:50 PM, PDT | GlamSham | See recent GlamSham news »

It isn't hidden that Bollywood has revolutionized since its advent, and the proof of it is the changing superstars with time. We bring you such Bollywood actors fail to leave a mark in today's times. Take a look...

Arjun Rampal

He failed to impress in Roy, and generally in most of his recent movies.

Uday Chopra

This man with a funny bone never really did anything significant apart from his Dhoom appearances.

Fardeen Khan

Yes, it is sad that this actor couldn't climb the ladder of success earlier, but he has many more obstacles if he ever wants to make a comeback in any of the upcoming movies!

Jimmy Shergill

No doubt he is a good actor, but Jimmy Shergill will have to do more films like A Wednesday to make a strong comeback.

Dino Morea

Last seen in a cameo role in Happy New Year, he has been missing »

Bhushan Kumar clarifies stand on Arjun Rampals exit from Love Affair

9 March 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Right after Ali Fazal was roped in for the upcoming 'crime of passion' drama Love Affair, there were rumours about the makers having a fallout with Arjun Rampal, who was initially playing the part in the film.

Apparently, buzz was that Arjun Rampal decided to call it quits because his demands over the remuneration were not fulfilled. Now, producer Bhushan Kumar has come to the rescue and has confirmed that his relation with Arjun Rampal is very cordial and they share the same friendly bond. Quashing the rumours, Bhushan said, "Arjun Rampal is a very dedicated actor and is extremely conscious about the production values and budgets of the films he has done and commits to. We had a great experience working on Roy. Love Affair is a period film. However, when the Bhatts decided to bring down the overall budget, we all together decided to save Arjun for another »

Revealed: Why Bhushan Kumar Saved Arjun For Something Bigger

8 March 2015 10:48 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Recently, we heard that actor Ali Fazal would be replacing Arjun Rampal in director Soni Razdan’s next which is jointly being produced by Bhushan Kumar and Mahesh Bhatt. This made us wonder why, and now we finally know the reason.

Producer Bhushan Kumar said, “Arjun Rampal is a very dedicated actor and is extremely conscious about the production values and budgets of the films he has done and commits to. We had a great experience working on Roy.  Love Affair is a period film. However, when the Bhatts decided to bring down the overall budget, we all together decided to save Arjun for another project that we are planning on, even though he was very enthusiastic about the script. Hence we’ve all mutually decided  save Arjun for another bigger project.”

The producer further revealed that the decision was mutual and also said that Arjun will work with them on another upcoming project, »

Rant and Rave: “Roy has no script, no performances to boast of and above all, no entertainment value.”

15 February 2015 9:37 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

As you walk out of Roy you wonder what you could have possibly done to warrant being subjected to that. Yes, we have our first unbearable release of 2015. And before you argue that we’ve had other bad ones, rest assured they were not as bad as this.

Vikramjit Singh’s debut film has a promising cast and even a somewhat promising premise but apart from that it has nothing. It has no script, no performances to boast of and above all, no entertainment value.

In brief this snoozefest is the story of a film writer/director (Arjun Rampal) who sets out to make the third instalment to his largely successfully film franchise. He meets another filmmaker while shooting (Jacqueline Fernandes) and the outcome of their relationship has repercussions on the film he is making. Amidst the story of the two filmmakers is also the story of the film characters »

Roy Movie Review

14 February 2015 9:28 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

One can just imagine the briefing director Vikramjit Singh gave his actors while starting Roy. Arjun, just look bored and the stylist will do the rest. Jacqueline, your legs will be focus of your performance but do tell the makeup man to stock up on some good lipsticks. Ranbir, look brooding in black and please don’t question your motives for being in this film. That, in a nutshell, is Roy – beautifully wrapped trash.

What do you do when you have a film to make but no script? You book an expensive location and fly out your whole crew of course! That’s what celebrated writer, director and womaniser Kabir (Arjun Rampal) does to overcome his writer’s block. He bumps into another filmmaker Ayesha (Jacqueline Fernandez) there and she becomes his muse and the inspiration of his film script. And so starts the movie within the movie about Roy »

Jacqueline Fernandez has been on a winning streak with her movies doing exceptionally well at the box-office. In an exclusive chat with a leading newspaper, she revealed that her last blockbuster Kick made her all the more confident about herself and her performances. She even went on to say that “Kick re-launched my career, in a way. I hope the winning streak continues with Roy as well.”

The gorgeous lady feels that the letter ‘S’ is what works wonders for her. “I always consult Salman before signing anything. He has been very lucky for me. He has always supported me and believed in me and my work. I owe Salman a lot for the way my career has shaped up now,” she said.

There are certain other people she consults before signing any movies, along with her close friend Salman, and coincidently, the others too have names starting from her favourite letter. »

9 February 2015 2:01 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

T-Series upcoming film Roy is surely one of the most anticipated films of 2015.

The film has great music to boast of, some stellar casting – Arjun Rampal, Jacqueline Fernandez & Ranbir Kapoor to be seen together in one frame.

We hear Arjun Rampal & Ranbir Kapoor bonded well on the sets of Roy; it’s fun to see two great actors on the sets enjoying and talking about everything under the sun.

A source close to the production team confirmed and said, “Arjun treats Ranbir as his younger brother and during the shoot in Langkawi both these men wanted to go off for sailing, and their favourite pastime was fishing, while not shooting. As soon as they used to hear pack up, they would instruct the sailor to hop on and take them into the deep sea for fishing and bonded quite well!”

Well, what can we say, boys will be boys. We »

Big Films Help One Grow- Jacqueline Fernandez

3 February 2015 6:15 PM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Jacqueline Fernandez has made all the right choice of films, right from the time she entered the industry. Her first film (Aladin; 2009) itself was with megastar Amitabh Bachchan. And from there, she continued her streak with films with big stars like Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, Salman Khan, Arjun Rampal and Ranbir Kapoor, amongst others. The actor admits that working with the big names in the industry is important for her.

“You have to be part of big movies that have established actors. Working with them helps one grow. I learnt a lot when I did my first movie with Amitabh Bachchan. At the same time, Saif has helped me a lot. He gave me advice on my dialogue delivery without being preachy,” she says.

She also admits that while signing a film, she even takes into account the director of the film. “My priority while signing a film is »
