Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversy magnet, Padmaavat just released today and while it redefines period drama and everything is larger than life, there are a bunch of movies before this that hit the screens without all the drama. Read about the movies here!

1. Devdas (2002)

A lot of filmmakers have tried doing justice to this epic movie. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s version of this movie was the one that hit home. Grandeur, a Bengali war and a love story all neatly tied up in an entertaining drama make for a Devdas that leaves you spellbound.

2. Lagaan (2001)

Set during the British Raj, Lagaan was arguably one of the best movies produced at the time. While the story wasn’t a real tale, the story was an instant success! The setting and everything about the movie was portrayed extremely realistic as it could get! The film’s locations, the casting of the British actors and even the power play between the King of the state and the Britishers added authenticity to the film’s plot.

3. Mughal e Azam (1960) 

I know it seems hard to imagine this, but there was a time before Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s grand and opulent movies dominated the theaters. Mughal e Azam was one such movie! Set during Akbar’s reign, the movie was based on the love shared between Anarkali and Salim. While there is no historical evidence behind this story, the construction of the intricate palaces and the grandeur added the gravitas that was needed to make the movie the success it was!

4. Bajirao Mastani (2015) 

Bajirao Mastani was grand, magnificent and a story told with a flare like never before. The film was the story of Peshwa Bajirao and his love story with Mastani. Many religious and political groups were upset with Bhansali because of Bajirao’s portrayal but it all simmered down after the release of the film.

5. Jodha Akbar (2008) 

This 2008 film was surrounded by controversies for its historical inaccuracy. While Gowariker was trying to make a film and not a documentary, it was the Rajput Karni Sena that unofficially headed the protests. The period drama was set during Akbar’s reign and explored the political dynamics of the era along with telling the love story between Emperor Akbar and his wife Jodhaa Bai.

Pari Teasers Continue To Haunt Us,Latest Bollywood News,Mango Bollywood,Fourth Teaser for Anushka Sharma Pari,Anushka Sharma Pari Teaser 4,Hindi Movie Pari Teaser 4,Pari Screamer 4 Release,horror movie pari teaser 4, anushka sharma pari screamer 4

The fourth teaser for Anushka Sharma’s Pari just hit the internet and from the looks of the 22 seconds clip, this movie continues to be extremely horrific. The teaser opens with an eerie shot if a half closed door from which Anushka can be seen sitting on top of a balcony’s railing.

The following shots are a parody of sounds and Anushka and are haphazardly brought together with a haunting background and terrifying music. The camera zooms over Anushka and her petrifying white with blood shot eyes turn towards the viewers.

So far, we have been given a very tiny glimpse into what to expect from Pari. With visuals which terrify us and a story line which is very different from the traditional theme Bollywood sticks to, this Anushka Sharma movie promises to be quite a ride. Definitely not a movie for the faint hearted. Watch the fourth teaser here!

 
Directed by debutant director, Prosit Roy, this movie is going to be Anushka Sharma’s third movie from her production house, Clean Slate Films. Apart from Anushka Sharma, this movie also stars Rajat Kapoor,  Parambrata Chatterjee and Ritabhari Chakraborty and will hit the screens on 2 March, 2018. This Holi, stay safe!

Guess Who Tabu Blames For Being Single!

Guess Who Tabu Blames For Being Single,Bollywood News,Mango Bollywood,Tabu Blames For Being Single,Tabu Criticize Ajay devgn For Being Single,Tabu Accuse Ajay devgn For Being Single,Think Who Tabu Blames For Being Single,Tabu, Imagine Who Tabu Blames For Being Single

Tabu and Ajay Devgn have known each other for quite a while now. Apart from being co stars, the two are cousins as well! Even though they worked in a lot of movies like Haqeeqat, Thakshak and Vijaypath in the ‘90s, they have not done many movies after. Their last movie together was Golmaal Again. 

The pair has been the best friends for a long time now, but the actress, in a recent interview, says that Ajay is the reason why she is single till today.

Yes, Ajay and I have known each other for 25 years. He was my cousin Sameer Arya’s neighbour and close buddy, a part of my growing up years and that has laid the foundation of our relationship. When I was young, Sameer and Ajay would spy on me, follow me around and threaten to beat up any boys who are caught talking to me. They were the big bullies and if I am single today, it is because of Ajay. I hope he repents and regrets what he did,” Tabu said in a statement.

She might still be single, but the question here is, is she planning on tying the knot soon? About this, Tabu said, “I told him (Ajay) the other day to please find me a boy to marry. But jokes aside, our relationship has grown because we have worked so much with each other. From among the male actors, if there is anyone I can count on, it’s Ajay. He is a like a child and yet so protective. The atmosphere on set when he’s around is stress-free. We share a unique relationship and an unconditional affection.

Tabu and Ajay Devgn have an envious relationship, one that is deep, meaningful and has a lot of layers. While they played mind games against each other in Dhrishyam, it was a refreshing change to see them in a comic role in Golmaal Again! Now, one can only wait to see the next movie they come together for!
