PadMan, Akshay Kumar’s and R.Balki’s much awaited movie is scheduled to hit the silver screens Tomorrow and there are so many, MANY reasons to watch this movie. For the uninitiated, here are five reasons to watch this game changer of a movie!

1. R. Balki 

Known for creating hard hitting and socially relevant movies like Paa and English Vinglish, R. Balki as a director has proved his worth time and again. With a story like this, it comes as no surprise Akshay Kumar jumped at the opportunity of working with R. Balki. The director himself comes as an obvious reason to watch this PadMan!

2. Defying Stereotypes 

If anything, PadMan is going to set off a revolution and will get people talking about a long tabooed subject, that of menstruation and menstrual hygiene! The promotional strategies of this movie were so effective, it got people talking about the movie way before the release date. The very topic has broken and defied all stereotypes and has set a very high bar for the other movies releasing this year!

3. The Story In Itself 

The story of PadMan is based on a real life story. It has been inspired by the very motivational story of Arunachalam Muruganantham, a modern day superhero who worked hard to make life comfortable for women. Arunachalam’s story is one that needs to be told and there couldn’t be anything better than a star like Akshay Kumar championing the cause.

4. Akshay Kumar

For a while now, Akshay Kumar has been championing sports dramas and has become a true Khiladi in every way.  Through light hearted and content driven movies, Akshay Kumar has been a true supporter of stories that impact us the most. With PadMan too, Akshay tries to break the taboo around menstruation by presenting the story of a man who realised the lack of affordable sanitary napkins for the women in the rural parts of the country and worked on a business model to find a solution to the problem.

5. The Rest of The Cast 

Apart from Akshay Kumar, Radhika Apte and Sonam Kapoor have surprised everyone with their looks and their performances in PadMan. Sonam plays the role of Akshay Kumar’s English teacher Rhea, Radhika Apte plays the role of Gayatri. While Gayatri makes Akshay’s PadMan realise the need for cheap sanitary napkins, Rhea is responsible for promoting Akshay in taking his cause to greater heights. Through such strong characters, the two leading ladies of this movie have definitely made their presence felt.

Bankrolled by Twinkle Khanna’s production house, Mrs. Funnybones and KriArj Entertainment, this R. Balki directorial, is scheduled to hit the screens on 9 February, 2018! Go book your tickets for PadMan if you have not done it yet already and get ready to watch perhaps the best movie of this year.

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?

Batti Gul Meter Chalu First Song Is Out. Listen To It Here!

Published

Bati Gul Meter Chalu First Song Is Out. Listen To It Here!, Batti Gul Meter Chalu Movie Updates, Gold Tamba Song, Shahid Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor Bati Gul Meter Chalu Updates, Upcoming Hindi Movies 2018, Mango Bollywood, Bollywood Latest News, Shraddha Kapoor Upcoming Movie News, Shahid Kapoor Upcoming Film Updates,

After a long, long wait and lot of excitement, the maker of Batti Gul Meter Chalu just dropped Gold Tamba, the first song from the film. What makes this particular song so enticing is, despite the serious issue the film deals with, the makers could not help but add a peppy track to the mix.

Gold Tamba, the first song, deviates a tad bit from the topic and gives one an idea of what not to expect from Batti Gul Meter Chalu. While the tune is peppy, what does not work for this particular song is the slapstick lingo used throughout the 2 odd minutes. Perhaps the only relief for this particular Shahid Kapoor number lies in the way it it has been picturised, amid the setting of a mela or a fair, with its colourful hues. It seems like Gold Tamba is a blend of Shahid’s previous songs like Saree Ke Fall Sa and Gandi Baat, while its music might also remind you of Jabra Fan from the film Fan. Listen to it here!

Set in a small town in Uttarkhand, Batti Gul Meter Chalu addresses the issue of electricity theft and offloading issues faced by the rural areas of India. On a side note, do not miss the solid foundation of friendship the film is formed around. Apart from Shahid Kapoor, Batti Gul Meter Chalu also stars Shraddha Kapoor and Yami Gautami and is scheduled to hit the screens on 21 September, 2018.
