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.

Karan Johar is Back With A Star Studded Cast For ‘Takht’

Published

Karan Johar is Back With A Star Studded Cast For Takht, Karan Johar upcoming Film, Takht Movie Cast, Karan Johar on Takht, Takht Movie Latest Updates, Mango Bollywood, Bollywood Latest News, Upcoming Hindi Movie News 2018, Takht Periodic Film Star Cast,

Karan Johar announced his upcoming film Takht set to release in 2020. The film features a star studded cast that includes Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar, Janhvi Kapoor and Anil Kapoor. Karan used Twitter to provide an insight into the story line.

 

 

Takht is labelled as a historical film which comes after the previous film Padmaavat, that was released earlier this year and caused a stir in the country.

Takht is a historical magnum opus about the Mughal Dynasty, a battle between brothers for the Mughal throne. The lead character is played by Ranveer Singh as Dara Shikoh and Vicky Kaushal as his brother, Aurangazeb. Kareena Kapoor will be starring as their sister Jahanara Begum and Alia Bhatt would be playing the lead love interest.

This film would be the third historical film for Ranveer Singh after Padmaavat and Bajirao Mastani that were both blockbuster hits.

 

Karan Johar is well known for having a famed cast featured in his films, his previous hit Ae Dil Hai Mushkil featured Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Fawad Khan and Aishwarya Rai.

 

The cast members could not contain their excitement and went on to social media to talk about the film. Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt took to Twitter to announce their latest project and Janhvi Kapoor announced it on Instagram.

It was further announced that the screenplay is by Sumit Roy and dialogues by Hussain Haidry and Sumit Roy. It is unexpected for Karan to acknowledge the writers as the “heartbeat and soul of a film.” As writers require more recognition in Bollywood. Varun Grover (lyricist) and Neeraj Ghaywan (director) have been lobbying for writers getting the recognition they deserve by producers for a long time. 

 

Bhumi Pednekar shared her excitement regarding the magnum opus “It’s a great honour for me to be working such great actors and to be directed by a veteran. I am a very big Karan Johar fan ever since I was a child. So honestly, it’s very special feeling and it’s still sinking in. I am still dealing with it and I am just so nervous about the film.”

Farah Khan congratulated Karan Johar for the film via a tweet.

 

Are you as excited as we are to see Kareena Kapoor and Ranveer Singh share the screen?

Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor: Match Made in Heaven

They have the kind of love that has not been talked about, but is made for the movie screens. The real life love story of Anil Kapoor and his beautiful wife, Sunita Kapoor.

The Mr. India actor had a rocky start in the Bollywood industry, despite his father Surinder Kapoor, being a Bollywood film producer. Anil Kapoor used to look for jobs during the day and his friends used to help him find love at night.

 

When he came across Sunita Kapoor, a model, he had no way of getting in contact with her. Eventually, he found her contact number and decided to talk to her.

Upon being asked about how they met Anil Kapoor said: “I met her on the telephone, and fell in love with her voice. I feel shy and awkward when I speak about her, but I love speaking about her. She is wonderful she is beautiful; she is the best thing that has happened to me.”

He added, “Then eventually after speaking to each other for a few weeks, I met her and we became friends.”

 

Always ..Friendship goals.. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

A post shared by Sunita Kapoor (@kapoor.sunita) on

The relationship deepened when Sunita and Anil started dating, Sunita would even cancel her modelling photoshoots in order to spend more time with Anil Kapoor. Sunita was an established and successful model. She constantly helped Anil with his career.

 

It was a rocky road to the ‘happily ever after.’ The couple had to fight for their love. After struggling for a while they managed to convince their parents. The struggle was still not over for the couple they had one more hurdle to cross- the Bollywood industry.

 

 

Everybody in the industry advised Anil Kapoor not to marry as his career was at an all-time high after his hit film Mashal (1984), and the marriage would end his career as an actor.  In his words, “In those days the industry believed that the audience liked an actor only until he was unmarried. My well-wishers thus advised me not to get married else my career would be ruined. But then I asked myself, what is more, important to me, my relationship with my girlfriend whom I know for years or my career? I was puzzled. But then it struck me that I am in a love with such a beautiful girl and we have been together since 5 years and stuck together through thick and thin, and so marriage was paramount for me that time.”

 

Despite the obstacles, Anil Kapoor and Sunita Kapoor got married on 19 May, 1984.

 

They are proud parents of three children. Sonam Kapoor, Rhea Kapoor, and Harshvardhan Kapoor. Sonam Kapoor has been “As children, we got very little family time as dad liked mom to accompany him whenever he travelled. But whenever we did, it was awesome. It feels lovely to see how much he loves her.”



Anil Kapoor was rumoured to be having an affair with his co-star, Madhuri Dixit after their chemistry on screen. Anil laughed out these rumours claiming they were a publicity stunt. “I got a lot of opportunities to fall in love and out of it, as I worked with many beautiful stars, but I thought to myself whether I wanted 2 minutes of joy or a lifetime of happiness. I am extremely happy with Sunita.”

Fairy tales are real after all.

#ANDHADHUN Starring Tabu, Ayushmann Khurana and Radhika Apte

#ANDHADHUN Starring Tabu Ayushmann Khurana and Radhika Apte, AndhaDhun Motion Poster, Ayushmann Khurrana Upcoming Movie News, ANDHADHUN Movie Latest Updates, Mango Bollywood, Radhika Apte Upcoming Hindi Movie News, ANDHADHUN Latest Movie First Look, AndhaDhun Hindi Movie First Look Poster

The first motion poster of AndhaDhun, starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Radhika Apte and Tabu just released! The film is directed by Sriram Raghavan co produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Matchbox Pictures, is set to release on 5 October 2018.


Ayushmann Khurrana is moving away from his comfort zone after acting in romcoms such as Vicky Donor, Bareilly Ki Barfi and Meri Pyaari Bindu. He plays a blind pianist in this latest film.

“It (doing Andhadhun) was a deliberate decision. I think it is not important to reinvent yourself with every film. Actors probably take themselves too seriously thinking, ‘I have to be different in every film’. But more than seeing you differently, the audience wants to see you doing a different story. Apart from that, you can reinvent yourself after establishing yourself in a particular genre,” the actor said.


The first look of the film will be revealed on soon. Andhadhun will be set in Pune and the shoot is almost complete. Talking about the film’s title, the director, Sriram Raghavan said, “We are punning with the title as Ayushmann plays a blind pianist. It goes well with the story too. We had a lot of options in our mind, including Shoot The Piano Player, but the producers weren’t keen on using an English title. I know the real word is ‘Andhadhund’, but the ‘D’ is silent for us.”

We are so excited to see Ayushmann Khurana and Radhika Apte together! Are you?
