“Let’s begin with some news about production houses.
Anushka Sharma and her brother Karnesh Ssharma have produced several successful films and OTT features through their production house, Clean Slate Filmz. However, Anushka recently left her role at the production house due to a few personal reasons, but Karnesh isn’t worried about that.
In an interview with the Indian Express, he said, “”Clean Slate Filmz was started by her, so nobody can take that away from her. She has been instrumental in bringing us where we are today. Whether it is acting or giving creative inputs to stories, she’s always been involved. She is in a different phase in her life right now and we have to respect that. But, she is still participating”””
“Babita Kapoor ruled the silver screen for a brief time, got married to Randhir Kapoor in 1971 and became a part of the most reputed film family. However, her life was not a fairytale. Babita and Randhir have been living separately for several decades now. Their daughters Kareena Kapoor Khan and Karisma Kapoor have often opened up on how Babita brought them up single-handedly without any help from the Kapoors.
Kareena Kapoor revealed that Karisma used to travel to college in local trains, while she took a school bus like any normal kid. The actor said“It’s only because mom brought us up like this that we value everything we have today. The bad days we have seen have made us very strong and fragile at the same time.””
“Moving on, Actor Shahid Kapoor in a new interview said that marriage was ‘the first big shift’ in his life, and then came parenthood.
Shahid appeared on YouTuber Ranvir Allahbadia’s podcast, where he discussed his equation with Mira, and spoke about his upcoming film Jersey. The sports drama is slated for release on Friday.
When asked how marriage had changed him, Shahid said, “The best times in your life are when you’re thinking of others, that’s what marriage teaches you… Mine was an arranged marriage. It wasn’t a love marriage, or friends who’ve known each other for a long time choose to settle and live their lives together. It was none of those things. It was an arranged marriage.””
“After a long hiatus from the silver screen, it’s a storm of Shah Rukh Khan films. Just a few weeks ago, the actor had announced Pathaan with YRF, and on Tuesday, the actor announced his next film Dunki, with director Rajkumar Hirani. The film also stars Taapsee Pannu and is set to release on December 22, 2023.
Dunki marks Shah Rukh Khan and Rajkumar Hirani’s first collaboration. Apart from Dunki and Pathaan, Shah Rukh is also working on Atlee’s film, which is tentatively titled Lion. Pathaan will be Shah Rukh’s first release after his hiatus. The film also stars Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, and will release in theatres on January 25, 2023.”
“Speaking of the film Dunki,
Actor Taapsee Pannu is on cloud nine after bagging Rajkumar Hirani’s next film, where she stars alongside Shah Rukh Khan. In a Twitter post, the actor mentioned that it took her ten years to reach this state in her career.
Quoting Shah Rukh Khan’s iconic dialogue from Om Shanti Om, she said that it was all due to her hard work and perseverance. Taapsee made her Bollywood debut with the film Chashme Badoor in 2013, and later gained acclaim for her performances in films like Baby, Pink, and Mulk.
2023 seems to be the year of Shah Rukh Khan, as Pathaan will release in January, and Dunki in December..”
“More on future Bollywood releases:
Actor Ajay Devgn has said his upcoming action drama Bholaa will release on March 30, 2023.
The film, directed by Dharmendra Sharma, also stars Tabu as a cop. Bholaa is the Hindi remake of the Tamil hit Kaithi, which was written and directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj.
Devgn tweeted saying : “Proudly announcing my next venture ‘Bholaa’, releasing on March 30th, 2023,”
The original film revolved around an ex-convict (played by Karthi) who decides to meet his daughter for the first time after being released from prison but gets caught in a face-off between police and drug mafia.
Bholaa is produced by Ajay Devgn Ffilms, T-Series Films, Reliance Entertainment and Dream Warrior Pictures. ”
“It’s been over a decade since Ranveer Singh started his career in Bollywood. The actor, who made his debut with Yash Raj Films’ Band Baaja Baraat, returns to the banner with Jayeshbhai Jordaar.
At the trailer launch of the film in Mumbai, Ranveer opened up about the one advice filmmaker Aditya Chopra had given him. “ I had gone to watch a film, where I saw two people standing in front of my poster. I stopped because I wanted to overhear what they had to say. They said, ‘Who is this? He doesn’t look like a hero!’. In fact, Aditya Chopra had told me in our second meeting that, ‘You’re not Hrithik Roshan, so please try to act.’” ”
“And finally, we end the bulletin with a few words from Gangs of Wasseypur actor Nawazuddin Siddique.
The actor recently said that he could easily straddle the world of larger than life commercial films and quieter, independent cinema, being aware of the “kind of acting” both require from him.
However, Siddiqui is certain he wouldn’t use method acting when he is featuring in commercial films, the actor said he is not averse to dive deep with his performance in such projects provided there’s no clash with the film’s world. In “Heropanti 2”, where he is cast as a don opposite Tiger Shroff, the actor said the role offered him a chance to “have fun” and not “intellectualise” his character.
