Annually, Bollywood as an industry releases at least 300 movies. The fact that Bollywood is popular world over is no strange thing. While a lot of things have been known about the different members of this industry, there are still some things a lot of us do not know. Today, we take a look at the top ten lesser known facts about the Bollywood fraternity.

1. Shah Rukh Khan

King Khan has not been declared as one of the best actors in the industry for no reason. Not only has he acted in over 300 movies, he has also won the award for being the Best Actor 29 times till date!

2. Deepika Padukone 

Deepika Padukone made her big Bollywood debut opposite Shah Rukh Khan in Om Shanti Om in the year 2007 and since then, there has been no looking back for this long legged beauty. Interestingly, she is the ONLY Bollywood actress who made it to the Rs. 500 crores club!

3. Kalki Koelchin 

Kalki Koelchin is perhaps one of the most underrated actresses in Bollywood. While everyone knows about Kalki’s French roots, very few know the fact that Kalki’s grandfather, Maurice Koelchin, was the Chief Engineer during the construction of the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty! Cool right?

4. Mera Naam Joker 

Mera Naam Joker released in 1970 and was perhaps the longest movie in Bollywood. It was so long, the movie had not one but TWO intervals! No movie has been able to beat this movie in terms of length!

5. Heroine 

Madhur Bhandarkar has been known for making iconic movies like Fashion and Heroine. While Heroine was considered to be way ahead of its time by fans and critics alike, did you know that Kareena Kapoor Khan wore more than 130 dresses at different points during the movie? All the clothes she wore were designed by extremely famous designers. This was definitely a first!

6. Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge 

While a lot of us love Shah Rukh Khan’s and Kajol’s pairing in Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, did you know the first choice for Raj’s character was not Shah Rukh Khan? Hollywood actor, Tom Cruise, was supposed play this role. Back then, however, Hollywood and Bollywood did not really get along and this idea was aborted.

7. Sridevi 

Sridevi has always been an icon for us. Did you know, in one of her initial movies, she played unconventional roles? One such movie was Moondru Mudichu where she played the role of Rajnikanth’s step mother despite the fact that she was only 13 years old at the time. Wow!

8. Mughal E Azam

When Mughal E Azam was being shot, it was initially shot in not one, but three different languages! While the Tamil version of this film tanked, the Hindi version did exceptionally well. Unfortunately, the English version was aborted right in the beginning.

9. Lagaan

Did you know Aamir Khan’s Lagaan was the first Bollywood movie to release in China? Not only was it the first movie of its kind, it was also the first movie to have an international release!

10. Mother India 

The Oscars have been a coveted award ceremony not just for the Hollywood industry but also for the Bollywood world. Interestingly, Mother India was the first Bollywood movie to be nominated in the Foreign Films Category!

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,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!
