A new song titled Naina of film Gori Tere Pyaar Mein has been released. The song has been sung by Kamal Khan and Neeti Mohan. It has been composed by Vishal Shekhar. The song is a melodious romantic number. Kamal Khan has sung well in the song.
Directed by Punit Malhotra, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein stars Imran Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor. The film is produced by Karan Johar of Dharma Productions. The story of the film is about an urban young man going to a village to win love of a social worker. There is a love triangle in the story too. The film will be released on 22 November.
A new song Daaru Band Kal Se of Singh Saab The Great has been released. The song has been sung by Sonu Nigam. It has lyrics by Kumaar and music by Anand Raj Anand. The song has been sung well by Sonu Nigam. Sadly, the melodious voice of Sonu does not match the baritone voice of Sunny Deol. So, the song looks very odd when seen in the video. We think music composers should use voice of a singer whose voice suits the actor seen on the screen.
Directed by Anil Sharma, Singh Saab The Great stars Sunny Deol in lead role. The film also features Amrita Rao and Prakash Raj. The film is set to be released on 22 November 2013.
The Bombay High Court has refused to stay the release of film Krrish 3. A writer from Madhya Pradesh had requested to stay the release the film as his script was used to make the film without giving him any credit. The court has, however, decided to keep the case on and further proceedings in the case will take place after the Diwali festival.
As reported earlier, writer Uday Singh Rajput has filed a court case at the Mumbai High Court alleging that his script has been used by Rakesh Roshan for making his film Krrish 3. He has asked for a compensation of Rs. 2 crores from Rakesh Roshan. Interestingly, in media events Rakesh Roshan has been saying that he has written the story of the film, while defending himself in this case, he has said that the script has been written by Robin Bhatt.
It should be noted that Rakesh Roshan has a history of using work of others without giving credit. He was forced by a court to pay Rs. 2 crores to music compeer Ram Sampath in 2008 for using his music in film Kraazy 4 without giving credit.
The much-anticipated trailer of film Dhoom 3 has been released. The film stars Aamir Khan in the lead role. Yash Raj Films has earlier released a teaser of the film which grabbed a great number of views online.
The trailer of Dhoom 3 is full of exciting stunts and thrills. The story of the film also sounds a bit of emotional with a father and son connection. A couple of bike stunts look stunning.
Dhoom 3 is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, who is also writer of the film. It also features Abhishek Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Uday Chopra. The film will release on 20 December this year.
Trailer of Sunny Leone starrer jackpot has released. The film will hit the big screen on 13 December. The film also stars Naseeruddin Shah and Sachin Joshi.
Jackpot seems about the casino industry. In the film Sachiin Joshi plays role of a conman, while Naseeruddin Shah looks like paying role of a kingpin. As expected the film also has steamy scenes involving Sachiin Joshi and Sunny Leone. The trailer of the film looks sleek. It has edgy music but no dialogues.
Director Kaizad Gustad is coming with a Bollywood film after a long time. Remember his films like Boom and Bombay Boys?
Salman Khan is going to make a cameo in his home production Hero. The film is a remake of the 1983 film of the same name.
The Hero remake will launch Sooraj Panholi, son of Aditya Pancholi, and Suniel Shetty's daughter Aathiya. The film will be directed by Nikhil Advani, who is busy modifying the original script to make it suitable for today’s generation. Shooting for the film will begin in January 2014. The film will use some songs of the original film, while some new songs will be composed by Sajid- Wajid.
Horo, directed by Subhash Ghai, was released in 1983. It launched careers of Jackie Shroff and Meenakshi Sheshadri. The film was best known for its melodious music, composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.
According to sources, Tusshar Kapoor is going to produce a film. He is making the film along with his business partner Shabina Khan, who is a fashion designer by profession. Tusshar Kapoor has decided to cast Ajay Devgn in his film, who has verbally agreed to work in the film.
Shabina Khan is also a close friend of Ekta Kapoor, sister of Tusshar Kapoor. Shabina and Tusshar may opt for any other company for distributing their film once it is ready. Tusshar Kapoor is in final stage of finalizing script for the film. Shooting for the film will start next year if everything works according to the plan.
Ajay Devgn is currently shooting or Action Jackson, an action thriller directed by Prabhu Deva.
As you know film jai Ho is a remake of Telugu film Stalin released in 2006. According to sources, producer-director Sohail Khan had to shell out Rs. 4.5 cores for remake right of Stalin. If the news is true then it may just be a record for remake rights in India. Normally Hindi filmmakers pay Rs. 3 crores for purchasing remake right of any hit South India film. Jai Ho stars Salman Khan is lead role.
Stalin was directed by A R Murugadoss. The film starred Chiranjeevi in led role. The film also featured Trisha, Prakash Raj, Khushboo, Ravali, Pradeep Rawat and Sharada Urvashi. The Telugu film, made at budget of Rs. 15 crores, made Rs. 30 crores at the box office.
If Sohail Kahn indeed paid Rs. 4.5 crores for Stalin remake rights then he should have not done so, because Stalin was not an original film. It was copied/inspired from Hollywood film Pay It Forward released in 2000. The Hollywood film was directed by Mimi Leder.
It seems director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra can’t get over failure of his first film Aks. He keeps fondly talking about the film in spite the film finding no audiences. Now happy after success of his recent film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, he is going to release an edited DVD version of Aks.
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra feels that no one can do anything after a film is released. But editing and changing content of a film may make people like a film, earlier rejected by audiences. He will edit Aks and shorten it by 30 minutes. He is also going to release a director’s cut version of his another hit Rang De Basanti. Interestingly, in the past he had re-shot the ending of his flop film Delhi 6 and re-released it.
Released in 2001, Aks starred Amitabh Bachchan, Manoj Bajpai, Nandita Das and Raveena Tandon.
A little-known script writer of Madhya Pradesh has sued Rakesh Roshan for using his script for Krrish 3 without giving him any credit. The writer Uday Singh Rajput has gone to the Mumbai High Court and claimed that he wrote the script for Krrish 3. He sent the script to Rakesh Roshan who gladly used the script without giving credit to him and gave all credit to Robin Bhatt.
Uday Singh Rajput has asked the high court to stop the release of Krrish 3 and asked for compensation of Rs. 2 crores. Rakesh Roshan has appealed to the high court to not stop release of the film. Interestingly, Uday Singh Rajput had registered his script with the Film Writers Association in 2008 with the title of Krrish 2. Uday had requested Rakesh Roshan for giving him credit for Krrish 3 in the papt, but got no response.
It’s a shameful thing for Bollywood filmmakers. They keep stealing ideas from Hollywood films and also keep sealing work of Indian writers. Rakesh Roshan is known for his many inspired/copied films. He had stolen story ideas for several of his films in the past. Even his film Koi Mil Gaya was copied/inspired from E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, a Hollywood film released in 1982 and directed by Steven Spielberg.
