B-town’s rising star, Vicky Kaushal, seems to have an unbreakable bond with the military dress. The actor will be seen essaying the role of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, the 1971 war hero, in a film helmed by Meghna Gulzar.  

On June 27th, which marks the death anniversary of Field Marshal Manekshaw, the makers of the film took to social media to share its first look.  

The first look features Vicky Kaushal dressed as the dynamic Field Marshal Manekshaw, sitting at his work desk.  Vicky was previously seen donning a military dress in films like Raazi and Uri: The Surgical Strike and it is no wonder that this new look of his got him a top spot in the Thursday trends with people showering their appreciation.

Sam Manekshaw was the Chief of Indian Army in 1971 when India fought the Bangladesh Liberation War against Pakistan.  He played a key role in driving India to victory. This film, though based on his life, is not a biopic.  

Speaking to the news agency PTI, Meghna Gulzar said, “The film on Field Marshal Manekshaw is not a biopic. I’m looking at the man, his life and his times. I’m way over my head over here (the story.)” 

Producer Ronnie Screwvala is backing the film under his own banner RSVP.  Speaking about the film he said, “Sam Manekshaw’s name will be etched in the history as one of the greatest soldiers and minds India has ever seen. Young India desperately need role models to look up to, needs to be educated on the contribution made by this icon to India — as we know it today. I could not have asked for a better storyteller than Meghna to collaborate with on this one and will be a treat to do this with Vicky again.”

Vicky Kaushal too shared his excitement with the media stating, “I feel honoured and proud of getting a chance to unfold his journey on screen.”

Vicky Kaushal and Meghana Gulzar’s last collaboration, Raazi, received widespread appreciation from the critics and the audience.  It even became a part of the prestigious Rs. 100 crore club. Given the success of Raazi, the expectations from this film will be quite high.

Speaking about the film, Anand said, “When you bring two of the biggest and the best action superstars of India in one film and pit them against each other, you need a title that justifies the promise of a massive showdown. Hrithik and Tiger will be seen going at each other ferociously and mercilessly and audiences will want to see who outwits whom in this incredible fight. WAR is the only title that could have delivered on this big promise and justifies the level of an action spectacle that the film is trying to present to audiences globally.”

Satte Pe Satta Remake – Deepika Padukone-Hrithik Roshan To Unite?

Satte Pe Satta Remake – Deepika Padukone-Hrithik Roshan To Unite?, Deepika Padukone and Hrithik Roshan, Satte Pe Satta remake, Amitabh Bachchan Satte Pe Satta remake, Hrithik Roshan in Amitabh Bachchan Remake film, Mango Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan Upcoming Film News,

B- town’s biggest names Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone are likely to unite for the remake of Satte Pe Satta (1982.) 

Hrithik Roshan’s latest release, Super 30, is being praised by audience all through the Country.  Even before Roshan can celebrate this success, people are already curious to know what the superstar’s next film is. 

If reports are to be believed, Hrithik Roshan will, alongside Deepika Padukone, star in the remake of Satte Pe Satta, helmed by Farah Khan. 

Giving the inside details about the project, a source close to the film said, “Both Farah and Rohit wanted Deepika Padukone in the movie because not only do they love her but she fits the role to the T. When DP [Deepika Padukone] debuted, everyone felt she had an uncanny resemblance to Hema ji in terms of her beauty as well. When Farah narrated the story to DP, she loved it and instantly gave her nod.”

The source further added,  “Farah [Khan] has already discussed the idea with Hrithik Roshan, who has also given a verbal nod to the project. Farah has reworked the whole script and designed it to suit the contemporary times. They needed a superstar who would command the same screen presence as Big B and Duggu was their first choice.”

Hrithik Roshan, however, when asked about the topic in an interview, dismissed the topic intelligently.  “No. I don’t think you should go by news like that. Until I say what my next film is, I don’t think you should…Like I said, let me first look at which films I should do next. I will let you know,” he said. 

If this collaboration actually happens, it will be the first time we see Deepika and Hrithik together on screen.  This film will also bring together Farah Khan and Rohit Shetty for the first time. While Farah Khan will direct this film, Rohit Shetty will produce it. 

Deepika Padukone, who has been away from the silver screen for almost a year now, will be seen in Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak and Kabir Khan’s ’83, alongside husband Ranveer Singh, next year. 

We will have to wait and see if she agrees to work on the Satte Pe Satta remake.

Talented actor Irrfan Khan, known for films like The Lunchbox and Life of Pi, is taking things slow on the work front, after a severe health setback.  Strictly forbidden by his medical consultants to work less, the actor has taken only one assignment for now, according to a source. 

 

The source says, “He has taken on one assignment Angrezi Medium, and that is it. He will complete this film and then see how it goes. There is no question of taking on any new assignment at the moment. Irrfan will complete Angrezi Medium and then decide the course of his career in the future.

 

It is also said, the actor wants to spend more time with his family and friends.  Irrfan was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumor last year and travelled to London for treatment.  He has maintained a low profile since the diagnosis.

 

Irrfan’s last movie was the 2018 comedy road movie Karwaan, which received mixed reviews upon its release.  The movie starred Irrfan as Shauqat and actors Dulquer Salmaan and Mithila Palkar.

 

A filmmaker friend of the actor said, “Irrfan’s entire perception on life and career has changed. He no longer feels the need to push himself. He may do one film at a time, or none at all after Angrezi Medium. It all depends on his health and his state of mind.

 

Directed by Homi Adajania, Angrezi Medium stars Irrfan Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Radhika Madan in the lead roles.  It is the sequel to the 2017 movie Hindi Medium, which also starred Irrfan Khan and was a massive hit.  Angrezi Medium, produced by Maddock Films, is set to release on April 24th, 2020.
