In our top story. There’s only a month left for the release of superstar Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Jawan. As the countdown begins, SRK dropped a new poster of his look from the film. The poster shows ‘Jawan’ in his bald avatar, holding a gun. Another avatar – SRK’s bandaged look is also seen in the background. Shah Rukh captioned the post – “Main achha hoon, ya bura hoon… 30 days to find out. Ready?” Jawan is directed by Atlee. Nayanthara and Vijay Sethupathi will be seen sharing the screen with Shah Rukh Khan in the film. Fans will also see Priyamani, Sanya Malhotra and Ridhi Dogra in important roles. Jawan is SRK’s second release of 2023 after Pathaan.


Moving on. Whether it’s the title of their new project Guns & Gulaabs or its setting in the ’90s era, creators Raj & DK say the story rings true when it’s drawn from personal experiences. The name Guns & Gulaabs is a Hindi derivative of the American band Guns N’ Roses, popular in the 80s and 90s. Raj told PTI – ” You always go back to your personal experiences. That’s when it rings true and you can write honestly when you kind of experience some bits of it. That’s why you keep going back to nostalgia.” Guns & Gulaabs will arrive on Netflix on August 18. The show stars Rajkummar Rao, Adarsh Gourav, Gulshan Devaiah and Dulquer Salmaan.


Actor Sushmita Sen will be seen as transgender activist Shreegauri Sawant in the upcoming series Taali. The show’s trailer dropped on Tuesday, the 7th of August, and it promises a touching yet powerful story of courage. In the trailer, we get a glimpse of the challenges and humiliation Shreegauri faces before deciding to challenge the system. Sushmita’s portrayal is intense, with her eyes conveying much of the emotion. Particularly in a scene where she is in the hospital after surgery. Fans took to the comments and praised Sen for her dedication. One fan wrote, “Sushmita Sen is a phenomenon. What a journey from winning Miss Universe to Taali.” Directed by Ravi Jadhav, Taali will start streaming on JioCinema on August 15.


Meanwhile, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, have once again warmed the hearts of their fans. This time, Deepika took to Instagram to share a beautiful quote by N’tima, highlighting the joys and the beauty of marrying one’s best friend. In her post, Deepika shared, “Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you.” Ranveer Singh, responding emotionally to the post, dropped an evil eye, a heart, and an infinity emoji in the comments.


One of the most significant movies in Sunny Deol’s career, Gadar: Ek Prem Katha continues to hold a special place, even decades after its release. As the actor prepares for the release of the film’s sequel, Gadar 2, he expressed his views on cross-border love stories, advocating for people to embrace and respect others’ choices. When asked if his films were motivating people to engage in relationships across borders, Deol told Aaj Tak – “I don’t believe so. Nowadays, technology facilitates people meeting through apps. Once they develop feelings for each other, they naturally want to meet and be together. Instead of criticising or concerning ourselves with such matters, we should respect their choices.”


Meanwhile, at the book launch of Irrfan Khan: A Life in Movies, written by Indian Express film critic Shubhra Gupta, the actor’s wife Sutapa Sikdar remembered a time during the making of Piku when Irrfan improvised a scene. Sutapa shared – “Irrfan would work along with the director and the writer. They would have many drafts by the end of it and when he would go on stage, he would kind of improvise. Bachchan Saab, on the other hand, is very structured and prepared when he comes. When Irrfan improvised, he got really upset. But then later, they became friends.” Irrfan breathed his last on April 29, 2020. The actor succumbed to a colon infection.


As one of the most legendary characters to grace Indian cinema, Jadoo from Rakesh Roshan‘s sci-fi film Koi… Mil Gaya still occupies a special place in the hearts of movie enthusiasts. In the iconic movie’s climax, we witnessed Jadoo departing from Earth aboard a spaceship that Rohit, played by Hrithik Roshan, assisted in summoning. As a result, Rohit reverts to his previous self, losing all the superpowers. Rakesh recently revealed how he chose this climax by following the advice of Aditya Chopra. He told Pinkvilla – “Yashji was in favour of the ending where Jadoo takes away his powers and leaves. Adi had the conviction that the powers have come to Rohit in the end. So I kept that ending.”


Lastly, Filmmaker Subhash Ghai’s most iconic film, Pardes, completes its 26th anniversary of release today. To mark the special day, choreographer-filmmaker Remo D’Souza reminisced about his experience as a side dancer in the famous track ‘Meri Mehbooba’ from the film. In a conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Remo recalled – “I have lots of memories from the film, I think I can write a book on that. Firstly, starring in this film was a huge deal for me. When the film was released, I took all my friends to the theatre. However, I was not seen in the first half. Thank goodness, the song came and I had a prominent presence in that song.”
