Trailer of animation film Mahabharat has been released. The film is produced by Jayantilal Gada. The film is special because it has voiceovers by several leading actors of Bollywood. Amitabh Bachchan has given voice to character of Bhishma. Ajay Devgn has given voice for Arjun, Vidya Balan for Draupadi, Manoj Bajpai for Yudhistir, Anil Kapoor for Karna, Jackie Shroff for Duryodhan and Anupam Kher has given his voiceover for Shakuni. The film is claimed to be the most expensive animation film of India.
The trailer of the film shows all major events of the Mahabharat story. However, what we did not like was the fact that many characters have been given looks similar to film actors giving voiceovers to them. For example, Bheema looks very similar to Sunny Deol. This is not good. We should not play with looks of characters just for the sake of box office.
Goliyon Ki Rasleela: Ram-Leela has done quite well at the box office. The film has made Rs. 53 crores in just 3 days of its run in India. The film has additionally earned Rs. 21.03 cores in overseas box office collections.
Goliyon Ki Rasleela: Ram-Leela stared well at box office, in spite of all controversies surrounding the film. In fact controversies helped the film get more visibility.

The film has managed its good run at the box office and is most likely to reach the mark of Rs. 100 crores soon.
Film Bhaiyyaji Superhit has been stuck due to non-payment to its lead actor Sunny Deol. The film producer Mahendra Dhariwal has not made payment to the actor due to some reasons. Sunny Deol has refused to dub the film if his due is not paid. Recently Mahendra and Sunny had a verbal duel when Sunny suggested that the film would be released under his banner Vijeya Films if he was not paid his money.
Bhaiyyaji Superhit’s director Neeraj Pathak talked to both Sunny Deol and Mahendra Dhariwal. He is trying for a compromise in the situation with the help of action director Tinu Verma. Tinu has suggested to Dhariwal that he should make payment to Sunny Deol and has asked Sunny to dub the film.

Writer-poet Javed Akhtar is set to make a comeback to script writing. The veteran writer has already started to script his next film. He will be soon discussing his film story idea with a film director.
Javed Akhtar’s last script was for film Lakshya, starring Hrithik Roshan and directed by Farhan Akhtar. Javed Akhtar made his name as a super hit script writer along with his co-writer Salim Khan in the 1970s. The team of Salim-Javed gave many memorable blockbusters to Hindi cinema, including Sholay, Seeta Aur Geeta, Zanjeer and Deewar. Once their partnership ended Javed Akhtar wrote script for hit film Mr. India. Later he started to write film songs and went on to win 5 Nation Awards as a lyricist.
Sadly, in spite of writing many super hit songs filmmakers are not giving Javed Akhtar work these days. This may have been a reason for him turning once again to script writing. As widely reported, Javed Akhtar was a strong voice contributing to amendment of Indian copyright law, resulting in royalty payments to song writers and singers. This move of him displeased many producers who seem to have decided to not give work to him.
