Anupam Kher: I'm always driven by conviction

When Anupam Kher entered Bollywood as an actor in the 1980s, the industry was ruled by Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol and Sanjay Dutt, among others. While most of them established themselves as style icons, Anupam was experiencing a hair fall problem. He says his conviction made him flaunt his bald look.

Recalling those days, Anupam Kher told the publication here: "When you have nothing, and everything is going against you, you are left with your conviction. That is my story. When I came into the industry, I had struggled so much. Around that time, my hair started falling unevenly so that became another problem but I am always driven by conviction. Today, bald is sexy."

"I remember my manager back then, Ashok Panjabi, suggested me to go for hair treatment and wear wigs. I was like, no way, this is how I look. This is real to me. If I

Reflections 2015: Top 10 Best Albums of 2015

Bollywood had an interesting year of music, whether it was A.R.Rahman delivering a cohesive soundtrack in Tamasha or Amit Trivedi conjuring up the jazz and swing sounds of Bombay’s jazz age in Bombay Velvet. There was also less pressure on one music director to deliver when multiple artists contributed to the film’s hits like Roy’s ‘Chittiyaan Kalaiyaan’ by Meet Bros, and ‘Sooraj Dooba Hai’ by Amaal Mallik. 2015 was definitely a year for experimentation for music directors, which we completely appreciated including the retro albums like Prem Ratan Dhan Payo with the title track capturing the nation on Dubsmash. Read on for our picks of the year, and let us know what your faves were.

1. Bombay Velvet – Irrespective of what you thought of Anurag Kashyap’s magnum opus of Bombay’s murky past filled with gangsters, business tycoons, torch singers, and hitmen, you can’t dispute

Old is Gold for Bollywood superstars Akshay, Aamir, Anil, Varun & others!

There was a time when Bollywood superstars used to shy away from playing their age or even portraying a bit older character on-screen! But it seems 'aging' on-screen is gradually catching the fancy of our B-townies and no sooner it will become a new fad. In their respective films, these actors have been/will be seen willingly playing a slightly ripe age character and/or donning the salt-n-pepper look with elan. Take a look:

Aamir Khan in Dangal:Aamir has always been experimental with his work. While he has played myriad characters on-screen, for the first time we will get to see Aamir in an old man avatar. And the perfectionist is already sporting close-cropped grey hair.

Akshay Kumar in Brothers and Airlift:Another superstar who loves dabbling into different roles is our Khiladi Kumar! Interestingly, he will be seen playing his age in not one but two of his upcoming

Akaash Vani Takes On Race 2

Is the independent film directed by a fresh talent and featuring names that are not the marquee rulers here to stay? Judging by the curiously heightened appeal of this Friday’s release Akaash Vani, one would think that the small film with under-exposed faces has finally found its bearings towards the box office.

Some would say sophomore director Luv Ranjan has bitten off more than he could chew by pitching his love story Akaash Vani, starring two semi-newcomers, straight against this year’s first purported blockbuster Race 2.

We have it from a very reliable source that Akaash Vani producer Abhishek Pathak and director Luv Ranjan took the decision of pitching their film directly against the Race franchise, rather than coming a week earlier to avoid a clash.

The earlier plan was to release Akaash Vani on January 18 when Sudhir Mishra’s Inkaar was due. But when the core crew saw their end product,

“Jthj is an ambrosial autumn sonata done in colours and moods that redefine Mr Yash Chopra’s legendary levels of aesthetics” – Subhash K Jha reviews Jab Tak Hai Jaan

Starring Shah Rukh Khan,Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma

Directed by Yash Chopra

Flawed but fabulous, the pasha of romance Yash Chopra’s swan song – may God rest his rhapsodic soul—is a swoon-worthy ode to that achy-breaky feeling called love. Reams of poetry and volumes of prose have been written on it. But no poet no author has come close to unraveling the mystery of the heart.

Yash Chopra spent most of his adult years peering passionately into the heart. Jab Tak Hai Jaan(Jthj) is not his best work. The last 35 minutes when Shah Rukh Khan loses his memory is best forgotten. Miraculously the entire end-piece of this fractured symphony co-written by Aditya Chopra and Devita Bhagat, doesn’t take away from the sublime beauty of the work.

Jthj is like an elaborate work of art and a work that offers many different kinds of guilty pleasures for all

Who wants Son Of Sardaar to move

Reports that people "close to the Chopras" have requested the other Diwali release Son Of Sardaar to move, a very well-informed source says, "Who at Yash Raj or anyone close to Yash Raj has asked Son Of Sardaar to move? Contrary to reports, no one has 'requested' the people behind Son Of Sardaar to find themselves another slot. It's not required. It's their own imagination." At the Yash Raj camp the mood is upbeat. The Doyen is dead but his dream lives on. Jab Tak Hai Jaan is expected to smash all previous box office records of Yash Raj's films. The real surprise of the film is Katrina Kaif. Says a source from Yashraj "Yashji visualized Katrina as the archetypal Yash Raj heroine. And she didn't let him down.

Remembering Yash Chopra: A Lover of Indian Cinema

“I always believe that my films should give some hope to the man who comes to watch them for those three hours. If he goes home on an optimistic note, I would feel satisfied at having done my duty.” – Yash Chopra

It was indeed a sad day when news spread that one of India’s finest filmmakers, Mr. Yash Chopra, unexpectedly passed away at the age of 80. Mr. Chopra is an undisputable legend and he has crafted some of the finest commercial films the Bollywood audiences have ever feasted their eyes upon.

Yash Chopra is largely famous for making wonderful romantic films, though he has directed a handful of non-romantic films also. Yet no director
