Drama,  murder, mystery and forgotten love stories. Bollywood has had more than its fair share of things which went wrong and which have been forgotten. While the amazing movies which come out of the industry have made it easy to forget the other side of this world, nostalgia sometimes rears its ugly head. On a dreary Tuesday like today, here’s taking a look at some of the famous, old and forgotten scandals from Bollywood!

1. The spat of the Khans

The Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan spat is still one of the most widely talked about wars in the Bollywood world. For the uninitiated, the two Khans almost came to blows at Katrina Kaif’s birthday bash. So bad was their fight, Aamir Khan had to quite literally pry them off each other to avoid things becoming more serious. However, the situation was far from calming down and a year later, although SRK apologised to Salman Khan on Koffee With Karan, the fight just didn’t seem to end.

While SRK thought he was going to diffuse the situation with his apology, Salman Khan thought otherwise. Talking to the press with his own version of what happened, Salman Khan made a statement by saying, “He (SRK) did that on the show so that I’m hounded by this question throughout the year. I’ll not accept such drama. If he really was sorry and wanted to apologise, he could’ve called me or dropped by at my place. Expressing regret on a chat show makes no difference to me or anyone.” Talk about communication going wrong and everything going haywire! Oops.

2. Bipasha Basu and Amar Singh

Bipasha Basu, Bollywood’s babe and one of the most famous actresses, was caught having  raunchy conversations on the phone with Amar Singh. While denying these allegations seemed like the obvious path to take in this scenario, a recording of the conversation made it hard to erase the conversation. Both Amar Singh and Bipasha Basu have been trying extremely hard to hide the tape, but it is only a matter of time before the tape makes the headlines.

3. Parveen Babi’s life

Parveen Babi, one of the greatest actresses of  the golden era of Bollywood, was famous for redefining the way women were perceived in the field of cinema. However, despite being bold and beautiful in every way possible, Parveen Babi was remembered for Mahesh Bhatt’s depiction of her, rather than for who she really was.  Moreover, the fact that she was diagnosed with schizophrenia was also something which was held against her time and time again.

The fact her health was failing was not an unknown fact, what triggered her psychotic episodes is still not known. With speculations being rife about the reasons behind Babi’s bad relationships with people like Kabir Bedi and Mahesh Bhatt, the actress slowly started fading into the background. Rumoured to have inherited the disorder from her father, Parveen Babi kept struggling to find happiness throughout her life. Her loneliness, coupled with the constant fear that someone was trying to get at her, was constantly pushing Babi to want an out from the film industry. However, being as famous as she was, the only road to exit for Babi seemed death. Which is why, when she died alone in her apartment, there wasn’t much for people to think of but that she committed suicide. It took an entire troop of policemen to break down the door to her house and what they found on the other side, showed that when it comes to being lonely, the only thing that can help is when you come to terms with who you are.

4. Who is Sonakshi Sinha’s mother?

Shatrughan Sinha’s daughter, Sonakshi Sinha, has been in the limelight for some very weird reasons. The strangest one being the identity of her birth mother. While the medical reports say Sonakshi’s mother was Poonam Sinha (Shatrughan’s wife at the point,) people say otherwise. With Sonakshi bearing such striking resemblance to Reena Roy, Shatrughan’s ex girlfriend, the rumour mill started saying Poonam wasn’t really her mother! Although Sonakshi refuted these claims multiple times, the uncanny resemblance and the timing just seems extremely close to the facts! 

5. Aamir Khan’s secret child

Aamir Khan, the actor known for his acting and family values, was part of quite a torrid affair. According to the rumour mill, this particular Khan is said to have a secret child with Bollywood writer, Jessica Hanes. Apparently, the two met each other on the sets of Vikram Bhatt’s Ghulam and got very “cosy” during the shoot. Shortly after the film wrapped up and the movie released, Jessica Hanes came forward, stating she had a child with none other than Aamir Khan!

Although Aamir Khan denied every report of the child being his, Jessica has gone on record time and time again, saying the child is definitely his. The writer also said, when her son grows up, she is going to tell him his father didn’t want him. Oops. Not the right kind of scandal to be caught between, right?

6. Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha

Perhaps one of the most scandalous things to happen in the world of Bollywood in the last few decades, the Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan affair is quite talked about even today. When the two worked together on Silsila, their chemistry was so on point, rumours of the two having an affair started doing the rounds.

What fueled the whole incident was the fact that despite sharing such a strong onscreen bond, the two never worked together again. Post a few months, one would have thought the whole affair would have literally died down. However, when Rekha started sporting a red sindoor on her forehead everytime she went out, things started heating up. The rumour mill can’t stop talking about how Rekha and Amitabh Bachchan got married secretly, with Jaya Bachchan not knowing what’s going on. Definitely a movie worthy story in the making!

 

With scandals and controversies being what Bollywood is famous for, it definitely comes as no surprise there are so many which have happened in the past! If you think we missed out on any more scandals like these, don’t forget to comment and let us know!

Kalank First Song Ghar More Pardesiya Out Now, Kalank song Review, Kalank first song, Ghar more Pardesiya from Kalank, Madhuri Dixit and Alia Bhatt Kalank, Mango Bollywood, Alia Bhatt Kalank Video Song, Alia Bhatt Upcoming Movie News, Kalank Latest News and Updates

After keeping us all waiting with bated breath for something other than just a teaser, the makers of Kalank have finally released a brand new song! Titled Ghar More Pardesiya, this new song doesn’t have a conventional pair as the lead but is instead, centered around Alia Bhatt’s and Madhuri Dixit’s characters.

Written by Amitabh Bhattacharya, the voice has been given by Shreya Ghoshal and Vaishali Mhade. The song opens to Alia Bhatt’s and Varun Dhawan’s characters entering a Ramleela performance. While on the one side of the stage, Laxman draws the epic Lakshman Rekha in front of Sita, Madhuri Dixit’s character is seen swinging on the other side. Listen to the song here.

What makes this song stand out is the way the attention to detail and the old school charm the song has. From the way the song was picturised, to the way Madhuri and Alia are dressed, the picturisation of this song has been perfectly done.

Days before the song was released, Alia teased everyone with tiny bits and pieces about how the shoot for the song went, “A song that gave me sleepless nights, days & months is coming very very soon.. I think you can safely say that I have never been SO nervous for anything in my life.. *screams frantically and hides under bed* You may have to send a search party to find me. Meanwhile watch this space for more.”

Directed by Abhishek Varman (known for other brilliant movies like 2 States,) this movie is the most awaited film of this year. Also starring Sonakshi Sinha, Sanjay Dutt and Aditya Roy Kapur in key roles, Kalank is all set to hit the screens on the 17th of April this year!

Bollywood Movies Which Inspired Hollywood Films

Published

Bollywood Movies Which Inspired Hollywood Films,MangoBollywood,Bollywood Films That Inspired Hollywood Films,Bollywood Films Inspirational From Hollywood Films,Inspirational and Motivational Bollywood Movies,Bollywood Inspirational Movies

How many times have you heard of a Bollywood film inspired by either a Tollywood or a Hollywood film? More number of times than you can count, right? We agree. However, there are some movies which did so well in Bollywood, they inspired some really great Hollywood movies. Here is looking at Bollywood films which not only made a mark on the Indian audience, but on the rest of the world as well!

1. A Wednesday (A Common Man)

Perhaps one of the best movies Neeraj Pandey has made in his career, A Wednesday received so much praise, it was critically acclaimed internationally as well! So loved was it by the world of Hollywood, they thought just one film like this wasn’t enough. Sri Lankan film maker, Chandan Rutnam loved it so much, he officially remade it as A Common Man in the year 2013. With Ben Kingsley playing the role of Naseeruddin Shah, Rutnam recreated the movie with only slight tweaks in the script. A Common Man did so well, it bagged not one, but several titles, such as the Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor awards at the Madrid International Film Festival.

2. Jab We Met (Leap Year)

When Jab We Met released in the year 2007, it quite literally redefined love and all the expectations people have from relationships. For years after, this movie became a gospel of sorts for when it came to love stories. This is why, when Leap Year was announced, it came as no surprise to people all over the world. Leap Year had Amy Adams and Matthew Goode in pivotal roles! While Jab We Met had everything you could want from a romantic, feel good Bollywood movie, Leap Year made you want to think about the choices you make. With an equally great premise, both the movies stay embedded in your memories because of their great storytelling.

3. Vicky Donor (Delivery Man)

When Vicky Donor released in India, it made quite a splash at the box office and with the critics because of its unique concept. While the Bollywood world and its audience really appreciated this concept, Hollywood loved it to no end as well. Taking inspiration from the story of Vicky Donor, Hollywood produced a brand new movie with the same concept, called Delivery Man! The only major difference between the two films was, while Vicky in Vicky Donor helps give birth to more than 500 children, the lead in Delivery Man helps give birth to around 100 kids!

4. Darr (Fear)

Remember the Yash Chopra directorial, Darr? The psychological thriller starred Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla and Sunil Dutt in the lead roles. It did so well, it received appreciation from fans and critics alike. Still remembered as one of the most iconic characters played by Shah Rukh Khan, Darr was the inspiration for the Hollywood thriller, Fear. From the characters, to the story line and to the direction style, Fear was quite literally copied from Darr. When Fear released, the movie did so amazingly well, it was one of the biggest hits of 1996.

5. Sangam (Pearl Harbour)

Directed by Raj Kapoor and starring Vyjayanthimala, Raj Kapoor and Rajendra Kumar in the lead roles, Sangam was a sensational success when it hit the screens. A love triangle set during a war, this movie was not just famous for being an iconic one, but for Raj Kapoor’s character as well. Kapoor’s character in Sangam is deemed as the best one ever played by him! So well done was this film, it became loved across the borders as well. It inspired the 2001 super hit Hollywood film, Pearl Harbour. With the script and everything else being the same, the only thing which was perhaps drastically different was the fact, Pearl Harbour was set against the backdrop of the Pearl Harbour attack!

When you see your favourite Bollywood films acting as inspiration for Hollywood movies, you know things are right in the world! If you think we missed out on any other Hollywood movies inspired by Bollywood movies, comment and let us know!

Photograph Review And First Day Box Office Expectations

Published

on

Photograph Review And First Day Box Office Expectations, Photograph Movie Review And Rating, Photograph Movie Talk, Photograph Film Review, Photograph Hindi Movie Public Talk, Nawazuddin Siddiqui Sanya Malhotra Film, Mango Bollywood, Sanya Malhotra Photograph Movie Story, Nawazuddin Siddiqui Photograph Public Talk

Director: Ritesh Batra

Cast: Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Sanya Malhotra

Story

Rafiq (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) is a street photographer who walks the streets of Mumbai trying to create special memories through polaroids. Into his frame walks Miloni (a CA, played by Sanya Malhotra.) However, while Rafi seems to think Miloni should definitely get a picture clicked, the latter is reluctant. Miloni finally succumbs to Rafi’s charms and persuasion skills and gets a picture clicked. The moment Rafi takes the picture, a conversation strikes up between Miloni and Rafi. The rest of the movie maps out to a family meeting on pretense and a slow romance in the works! With Miloni pretending to be Rafi’s fiancé Noor, the movie shows how the leads start getting closer even though they are playing a facade.

Review

Despite being part of a world which is constantly obsessed with social media and staying connected, Ritesh Batra has created a setting similar to old school romance. As always, Ritesh Batra has breathed magic into every scene. Something as simple as a photograph (not a selfie, mind you,) is so powerful, it draws two strangers together. Who would have thought?

Photograph works for one basic reason. It pulls at the nostalgia strings of your heart! Miloni and Rafi realise they really do have a lot of things in common and these similar tastes and similar dislikes form the basis of a beautiful friendship between them, with hints of something more in the offing.

Like always, Nawazuddin’s acting skills are par excellence. With every line delivered perfectly and a perfect characterization of Rafiq, Nawazuddin delivers his dialogues with skills only a seasoned actor has. On her part, Sanya Malhotra also plays the role of Miloni really well. While in the beginning, she plays a reserved and slightly aloof character, Sanya seems to grow in a manner which shows her acceptance of the character she’s playing.

With some lines of resemblance drawn from Basu Chatterjee’s Chhoti Si Baat, Ritesh Batra has made quite a masterpiece with Photograph. All in all, with the cinematography and music adding a really fine feeling to the entire movie, this Ritesh Batra directorial is a delight. Watch it for the subtle nuances and the simplicity of the entire tale!

To say that Nawazuddin Siddiqui is a brilliant actor would be an understatement. Despite being a new entrant, he quickly rose to prove he was not to be taken lightly. Every movie or show of which he has been a part, from Gangs of Wasseypur, to Sacred Games and to Manto, he gives the audience a certain kind of thrill. When you watch someone as truly talented as him perform, you know you are in for a treat. Sanya Malhotra, in her own light, is quite a gem. Despite being a newbie to the world of acting and Bollywood, she is still making her own mark. With a host of really successful movies to her name, Dangal and Badhaai Ho, Sanya Malhotra has definitely proved she is an actress for whom one should keep an eye out! Talk about a double bonanza!

Kalank Teaser Out Now

Published

on

Kalank Teaser Out Now, Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt Kalank Teaser, Kalank teaser launch, Kalank Multistarrer film latest news, Kalank Release date, Sonakshi Sinha Kalank, kalank sanjay dutt film, Kalank madhuri dixit latest movie updates, Aditya Roy Kapoor Upcoming movie news, Mango Bollywood

After a long, long while, the makers of Kalank just dropped the teaser and by the looks of things, it is every bit worth the long wait. Painting a series of stories involving drama, love and multiple emotions, the teaser introduces us to the different characters of this film. A little longer than two minutes, the teaser is captivating in every sense of the word.

First comes Madhuri Dixit as Begum Bahaar, then Sonakshi Sinha as Satya and finally, Alia Bhatt as Roop. While the female characters of Kalank seem to be written well, the male characters have just as special a story to tell. From Varun Dhawan as Zafar, a daredevil bullfighter, to Aditya Roy Kapur as Dev Chaudhary and to Sanjay Dutt as Balraj Chaudhary, Varman has truly thought out the cast! Watch the teaser here and now!

While the teaser doesn’t give a big clue about whose love story it is going to adress, the hints are certainly dropped with amazing subtlety. With only two dialogues forming the crux of this teaser, the visuals give an insight into what to expect from the film. “Kuchh rishte karzon ke tarah hote hain. Jinhe nibhana nahi, chukana padhta hai,” says Varun Dhawan at the beginning, while Alia Bhatt says the last dialogue, “Jab kisi aur ki barbaadi jeet jaise laage… toh humse zyada barbaad aur koi nahi hai iss duniya mein.”

Directed by Abhishek Varman, this particular movie is set during the last few years of a British governed India. From giving us a glimpse of the beautiful dance sequence by Madhuri Dixit, to showing us different scenes from that point of time, this teaser was needed to see what to expect from the movie. Produced by Karan Johar, Kalank is scheduled to hit the screens on the 17th of April this year!
