“Let’s begin with news on Sooraj Barjatya who is back to entertain audiences after seven years with his new film Uunchai. The film, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Anupam Kher, Boman Irani, Neena Gupta, Sarika, Parineeti Chopra, Nafisa Ali and Danny Denzongpa, will release on November 11, 2022.
In the trailer, we meet four friends, played by Bachchan, Kher, Denzongpa and Irani. Denzongpa’s Bhupen has only one dream in life, to climb Mount Everest. But he dies before he could fulfil his dream. His grief-stricken friends decide to honour his last wish and spread his ashes on Everest, no matter how many storms they have to brave for it. Despite their age and medical issues, the trio head to the Everest base camp. “
“Sooraj Barjatya also revealed that his close friend and long-time collaborator Salman Khan was keen to be a part of his upcoming directorial Uunchai.
Sooraj said, “When I was making this, Salman asked me, ‘Sooraj what are you making?’ then, ‘Why are you going to the hills?’ Then he also told me, ‘I can do this film!’ I said no! Because we all know he can climb mountains. But I needed people who can look as if they can’t,”
Sooraj and Salman have collaborated on films like Maine Pyaar Kiya among others.
“A new ad featuring Amitabh Bachchan has brought back his popular 1990s song ‘Eer Bir Phatte’. The new ad is for a toothpaste brand and has Bachchan singing lyrics that have been modified to suit the commercial.
Big B shared the ad on Instagram with a caption that read, “Rekindling the past, to kindle the present .. WHAT FUN !!!” Son Abhishek Bachchan, daughter Shweta Bachchan and granddaughter Navya Naveli Nanda shared dancing and heart emojis in the comments section.
The song was originally a part of the 1996 album Aby Baby where Bachchan, along with Bally Sagoo presented some of his older songs and a few new tracks.
“Bhuvan Bam recently recalled his experience of working with Shah Rukh Khan for an episode of Titu Talks and how he got SRK to give him a head massage. The YouTuber mentioned that the star was jovial about the whole situation and just went with Bhuvan’s ideas.
At the end of the episode, Bhuvan requested fans to like and subscribe to his channel, as he got a massage from SRK. Speaking to Baradwaj Rangan, Bhuvan said, ““I’ve never asked people to subscribe. I thought this is the right opportunity to tell him to subscribe and why not with a massage.””
Filmmaker Advait Chandan put an end to the speculation about a rift between him and Aamir Khan on Tuesday via his social media handles. There has been much buzz about all not well being the two, ever since their film, Laal Singh Chaddha was unable to make an impact at the box office. However, Chandan decided to shut down the speculation with a jovial post.
He shared a photo capturing fun moments of their friendship while adding a note on his social media and wrote, “Guys, for all those talking about a fall out between Aamir sir and me, I just want to say that we are like Genie and Aladin, Baloo and Mowgli, Amar and Prem.””
“Aamir Khan made his directorial debut with the 2007 film Taare Zameen Par. The film was appreciated so much that it was India’s official entry to the Oscars. But it was a film that never belonged to Aamir since filmmaker Amol Gupte had Akshaye Khanna in his mind for the lead role.
Gupte wanted to offer Taare Zameen Par to Akshaye, but since he didn’t know the actor, he asked Aamir to introduce him. Speaking to Midday, Akshaye said, “Aamir being Aamir, told him I cannot recommend a script unless I hear it first. So make me hear it, if I will like it, I will tell Akshaye. But Aamir liked it so much, that he did it,””
“Actor Akshay Kumar might be going through a rough patch with his films this year, but his appeal continues to remain unmatched, especially when it comes to endorsements. The actor is the face of innumerable brands, so it’s not surprising that the actor has achieved the top rank on TAM’s latest AdEx report and list of most visible endorsers on television. Actors Amitabh Bachchan and Alia Bhatt ranked second and third
Akshay’s wife, actor and author Twinkle Khanna also finds herself on the list”
Actor Ishaan Khatter says playing a real-life war hero in the upcoming movie Pippa so early on in his career was a transforming experience. Ishaan plays Brigadier Balram Singh Mehta, a veteran of the 45th Cavalry tank squadron, who, along with his siblings, fought on the eastern front during the Indo-Pakistan War of 1971.
Ishaan said, “Pippa certainly has been a transforming, different experience for me. It is in that kind of zone that is not being explored by young actors. It is interesting because that is just the age that the gentleman I am portraying, who is a real-life brigadier, was then a young captain,”
Directed by Raja Krishna Menon, Pippa will release in theatres on December 2″
