Touching upon the topic of tall woman and a short man in a relationship, Arjun Patiala gives a funny take on height differences between a much in love couple. Considering that Kriti Sanon is quite tall and this is why Dinesh Vijan considered her to be the perfect choice for this role.
In fact, this is the second time Dilijit and Kriti Sanon are working together in a movie. They first appeared together in the Sushant Singh Rajput starrer, Raabta, in 2017.
To make things interesting, we hear that Kriti Sanon will play the role of a journalist in this film while Diljit will play the role of a small town guy from Punjab. Arjun Patiala traces the way they eventually fall in love, the film also takes forward their love story with events that follow post their relationship.
This Dinesh Vijan movie is scheduled to hit the screens around the end of this year. Stay tuned for more news as and when we get it!
Hema Malini And Her Best Performances
Hema Malini, the one and only Dream Girl, turns a year older and wiser today and as the country celebrates the lady who stole Dharmendra’s heart, here is looking at some of her best performances to date!
Perhaps one of the most iconic roles played by this South Indian beauty, the character of Basanti became an instant hit when Sholay hit the silver screens! The right mixture of drama, quirk and fun, this particular role was responsible for propelling Hema Malini into the front lines of the extremely competitive industry that is Bollywood! Incidentally, this role is also considered to be one of the best performances by Hema Malini to date!
A mixture of drama and comedy, Geeta from Seeta Aur Geeta was definitely one of the most iconic roles ever played by Hema Malini! Incidentally, this was also the first time an actress from Bollywood attempted to play a double role and boy, did she kill it with her brilliant performance! So amazing was her job in this film that no one till date has been able to match her acting skills in this movie!
Hema Malini’s role as Aarti in this particular film written by Gulzar (Kinara) won her several accolades by both critics and fans. Giving a strikingly memorable performance by playing the role of a visually impaired dancer, Hema Malini as the simple village girl was a character which resonated with lots of people. In fact, her character in this film was quite a contrast as opposed to her performance in the previous Gulzar film (Khushboo.)
4. Pooja Malhotra
How amazing do Hema Malini and Amitabh Bachchan look together? The film Baghban reiterated just that fact when she played the role of Pooja Malhotra in this particular family drama. Not only did she play the role of a mother really well, her acting was so brilliant in this film, it brought tears to one’s eyes even after watching the movie for the tenth time! Hands down one of the best performances by Hema Malini so far!
In yet another amazing collaboration between Gulzar and Hema Malini, the film Meera brought to the fore the story of Meerabai! This particular Gulzar film talked about the Rajput code of conduct and addressed Meera’s personal conflicts during a trying time. Hema Malini’s performances as Meerabai was riveting and captivating to the point it made one empathize with Meera’s character like never before! Truly brilliant, this film showed Hema Malini’s acting skills in a new light!
Dream Girl, Hema Malini’s iconic role in the film Champabai, was perhaps her ticket to fame. What is extremely surprising about this film is she played not one, but five different characters with flawless ease and perfection. Interestingly, this was also the movie that brought to the fore the budding romance between her and Dharmendra! So great was her acting in this movie, she was given the official moniker of Dream Girl!
As this doe eyed beauty from the land of South turns 70 today, it is only befitting to wish her a very happy birthday by remembering some of her iconic roles! What is your favourite role to date? Comment and let us know!
Thugs Of Hindostan Song Vashmalle Released
Vashmalle, the first song from Yash Raj Films’ highly anticipated film, Thugs of Hindostan, just dropped. From the looks of things, this song is just as exciting as the trailer. One of the most exciting movies releasing next year, this particular film has a lot of things going for it, a factor made all the more enticing with this song. From the script to the cast, everything about this movie is keeping people gripped to the edge of their seat with bated breaths.
The just dropped song, titled Vashmalle, has been sung by the highly talented singer duo of Ajay and Atul, with lyrics given by Amitabh Bhattacharya and choreography by the brilliant dancer, Prabhudeva! While the song is foot tapping, what makes it all the more special is the fact it sees Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan come together on the silver screen for the first time ever! Listen to the song here and NOW.
For the first time ever, watch two superstars shake a leg together! Let’s do the #Vashmalle – SONG OUT NOW #ThugsOfHindostan @SrBachchan | @aamir_khan | #KatrinaKaif | @fattysanashaikh | #SukhwinderSingh | @AjayAtulOnline | @VishalDadlani | #AmitabhBhattacharya | @TOHTheFilm pic.twitter.com/qhSOHcG9Iy
— Yash Raj Films (@yrf) October 16, 2018
With a setting surrounding the theme of friendship and camaraderie, the song is a true joy fest through and through. Quite like the trailer, the first song reminds one of the intense fight scenes between Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa from the film Pirates of the Caribbean! This particular Yash Raj Films production has an impressive cast to its name. Apart from Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, Thugs of Hindostan also stars Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Sheikh in pivotal roles.
“It is amazing that we could write a suitable moment in the film that sees these two icons of Indian cinema shake a leg with each other and the song will stand out because of their infectious energy and camaraderie. The song presents Mr. Bachchan and Aamir Khan in the mood to celebrate. I have to reveal that the sequence will show them getting drunk during the celebrations and then breaking out to dance on this high energy number. It is a priceless moment that we have captured in Thugs of Hindostan,” director Vijay Krishna Acharya said while talking about the film previously. Thugs of Hindostan is scheduled to hit the screens sometime next year, so stay tuned for the release date!
Akshay Kumar Lesser Known And Interesting Facts
Akshay Kumar, the original Khiladi of Bollywood, is or rather was, quite the player! Before he met and fell in love with Twinkle Khanna, the man was a very different person. From being a very adorably notorious child to being one of the most good looking hunks in Bollywood, Akshay Kumar has done and been through a lot in life. Check out these unknown facts about the Khiladi of Bollywood here!
1. The real name
Did you know Akshay Kumar’s birth name was not really the name he goes by now? When he was born, he was named Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia and only changed his name when he entered the Bollywood industry. In fact, people close to him still call him Raju and not Akshay!
2. Won a Filmfare Award only TWICE
While all the other actors around him won more than one award for the best actor, Akshay Kumar has only won the Filmfare Award for the Best Actor twice in his career. The first time was for his brilliant performance as the Best Actor in a Negative Role in Ajnabee and the second time was for his amazing performance as the Best Actor in a Comic Role in Garam Masala.
3. The name Khiladi was NOT an accident
While Akshay Kumar’s competition were called King Khan and Badshah, the name Khiladi did not come to this particular dude by accident. It was only after he worked in eight films (Khiladi. Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Sabse Bada Khiladi, Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, International Khiladi, Mr. and Mrs. Khiladi, Khiladi 420 and Khiladi 786) with the name in the title did it stick to him and become his pseudonym of sorts!
4. Stole watches for fun
While a lot of people have pet peeves, not many are open about their trysts with the law. Akshay Kumar, on the other hand, is someone who just does not care. The man has admitted to stealing watches from shopping malls when he was younger just to get the kick out of stealing things and getting away with the crime! Sticky fingers much?
5. Not an Indian citizen
Just when you thought Akshay Kumar’s life could not get more interesting, it did. The Khiladi of Bollywood got himself a Canadian citizenship. However, with the Indian law being the way it is, he could not hold more than one citizenship at a time. Breaking the hearts of his Indian fans with one swift blow, he let go of the citizenship of the country he was born in and is now a full time citizen of Canada.
6. Played the same named character 8 times
If you think names like Raj and Vijay were only associated with characters played by Amitabh Bachchan or Shah Rukh Khan, think again! Did you know Akshay Kumar has played characters with the name Vijay 8 times and the name Raj 7 times on the silver screen? Who would have thought, right?
7. He played the role of a cop 13 times
Although Akshay Kumar has been typecast as the ultimate lover boy on screen, his real talent as an actor lies in the characters he played as a cop! Just like his on screen dad Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar has played this particular character over ten times in films like Kayda Kanoon, Mohra, Main Khiladi Tu Anari, Paandav, Sabse Bada Khiladi, Tu Chor Main Sipahi, Insaaf, Daava, Tarazu, Angaaray, Meri Biwi Ka Jawab Nahi, Khakee, Police Force: An Inside Story and Aan: Men at Work.
Akshay Kumar is quite the character and more than certainly stands apart from the other contemporaries of Bollywood. If you think we missed out on any facts about Akshay Kumar, comment and let us know!
Kishore Kumar And A Memory That Lives Through Music
Kishore Kumar lef the world on 13th October 1987, marking it as a sad day in the history of Bollywood and music. A day that took away one of the most enigmatic and beautiful singers, 13th October was labelled as the end of an era. When Kishore Kumar passed away, India lost a true gem, making fans all over realise that if music had a name, the name would be Kishore Da. Known for his voice filled with feelings, it is only befitting that one pays tribute to this great man through the melodious music he left behind. As I sit back on this nostalgic Sunday and think of the loss of a singer who touched not only his generation, but several ones after, I would like to leave you with these songs.
1. Yeh Shaam Mastani (Kati Patang, 1971)
Yeah, today’s evening is going to be a beautiful one, but really, remembering the death of this great man is going to put a damper on a beautiful Sunday. If only Kishore Da were still alive, every evening would be a wonderful and memorable one, with new songs and melodies to keep the bad dreams at bay!
2. Ek Ladki Bheegi Bhaagi Si (Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi, 1958)
Hands down one of the most amazing songs by Kishore Kumar, this song has been playing on my mind since the time I woke up this morning! Perhaps the best kind of tribute one can play to Kishore Kumar, either on a rainy day or a sunny day!
3. Dil Kya Kare (Julie, 1975)
Seriously, Dil Kya Kare when you lose someone who has been such an indirect and close part of your life? Nothing more than listen to Kishore Kumar’s music, right? On a side note, every time I break up with a dude (happens more number of times than you can think of,) this song is my go to heart fixer!
4. Maana Janab Ne Pukara Nahin (Paying Guest, 1975)
This song is feels personified. With Kishore Da in his complete element in Maana Janab Ne Pukara Nahin is a Kishore Da song through and through. The song is a perfect description of love that is not entirely two sided and is perhaps the most beautiful ode to being okay with the bad situations as any!
5. Roop Tera Mastana (Aradhana, 1975)
How many times a day have you listened to this song and hummed it over and over? Come on, you know you love this song as much as we do! Do not cat call pretty girls with this song. Bad idea! You’ll land up in prison and that is never good for anyone, right?
6. Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas (Blackmail, 1973)
Kishore Da, you may have left the world, but you are always going to be close to our heart. No matter what. Even more so through this song. P.S., if you were ever in the need of a quick fix with the love of your life, this song is the ultimate problem fixer! Trust me, a lot of people I know have used it and it has worked wonders every single time.
7. Mere Sapno Ki Rani Kab Aayegi Tu (Aradhana, 1969)
Putting into words what every man wants, this song is the perfect ode to finding true love and happily ever afters. Interestingly, in recent times, the songs from Dilwale Dulhaniye Le Jayenge are the only ones that comes close to this beauty! However, Kishore Kumar is the true original genius when it comes to romantic music, right?
As the country mourns the death of a man who would have been 80 if fate had not ended his life early, I am going to kick back, relax and play these songs all day with a cup of hot, strong tea! What is your favourite Kishore Kumar song? Comment and let us know!
Nithya Menen’s Praana First Look Poster Is Out
Nithya Menen, the woman of the hour, is gearing up for Praana, her next extremely exciting project, which is being made in multiple languages (Hindi, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam) at the same time! This means the gorgeous actress had to do the same scenes in not one, but four different languages.
Trying to capture the audience’s attention for the entire duration of the film is nothing short of a commendable task. However, with Nithya Menen’s track record of excellent performances to date, this is not an unimaginable feat for the brilliant and talented actress! Check out the just dropped first look poster of Praana here and now!
— pcsreeram (@pcsreeram) October 12, 2018
Highly anticipated for several reasons, one of the major plus points for Praana being one of the most awaited movies in recent times is that the film is going to be completely focused on Nithya Menen’s character! While Dulquer Salman is going to play a small role in this movie, the exciting factor is clearly Nithya’s part and how beautifully she executes this challenging role!
Clearly every director’s favourite actress in the South Indian film industry, Nithya Menen is famously dubbed as the girl with no repeat takes! Another first of sorts in India, the makers have used sync surround sound to up the excitement quotient for the film. Praana is going to be directed by V. K. Prakash and filmed by critically acclaimed cinematographer, P. C. Sreeram. The sound for the movie will be given by Oscar award winning sound engineer, Resul Pookutty and the lyrics are going to be given by Louis Banks.
Jointly produced by Anita Raj and Praveen S. Kumar under the banners of Real Studio and S Raj Productions, this particular Nithya Menen project is exciting, to say the least! The release date of the film has not been given yet, so stay tuned for the arrival of one of the most exciting movies in the film world to date!
