Born in the first family of Hindi film industry, Shashi Kapoor proved his might as more than a natural star. He became the commercially viable superstar and a critically acclaimed actor and was the force behind superhit films like Deewaar, Haseena Maan Jayegi, Kabhi Kabhie, Namak Halaal, Sharmeelee, Waqt, Vijeta, Kalyug and Satyam Shivam Sundaram.

During her recent sojourn at Rann Utsav as part of various promotional activities lined up for her movie, ‘Tumhari Sulu’, the versatile actor seemed to drift between the personas she is — both on and off screen. At times, she was the happy-go-lucky Sulochana (Sulu), a suburban Mumbai housewife; and then, she was the quintessential star who made the line ‘entertainment, entertainment and entertainment’ a catchphrase.
His upcoming film ‘Padmavati’ is facing opposition from many quarters in the country, but actor Shahid Kapoor has urged the people to first watch the movie without harbouring any preconceived notions.
Several outfits in Noida protested against the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed film yesterday and appealed to the masses not to watch the movie, due to release on December 1.
The new gen star of Bollywood, Ranveer Singh recently impressed Manoj Kumar with his photoshoot! It was not an ordinary photo-shoot. It was Ranveer Singh mimicking the iconic pose of Manoj Kumar with his hand on his face. The same pose was mimicked by Shah Rukh Khan during Om Shanti Om and he was dragged in the court by the veteran actor. When asked about why he chose to react positively to Ranveer Singh’s this photoshoot, he gave his reasons to hitlist.
He told,” I have seen the snapshot. He has done a good job of imitating me. I laughed a lot when I saw the picture. Ranveer is on the right track. What Shah Rukh did was hitting below the belt, what Ranveer did was in good taste.”
Well, it was just a decade ago and it is surprising that Manoj Kumar gave his thumbs up to Ranveer’s experiment with the pose. He even captioned the photo as ‘Workin’ the Manoj Kumar.’ It turns out that the much loved veteran actor is quite impressed with Ranveer Singh’s acting.
There was much speculation about Baahubali actress Anushka Shetty’s Bollywood debut, with filmmaker Karan Johar. However, the actress, who shot to fame with the Baahubali franchise, has now reportedly opted out of the project, as she did not like the role offered to her.
“Karan was keen on casting Anushka in one of his projects, but she didn’t find the role adequate enough for her. She had rejected Tamasha for similar reasons as well. And yes, there are speculations that she may have consulted Prabhas before refusing the film,” said a source.
Earlier, Anushka had rejected Ajay Devgn’s Singham and the Golmaal series.
Looks like Anushka is following in Prabhas’s footsteps. KJo had approached Prabhas for a film, but apparently Prabhas asked for a salary of Rs 20 crore, which KJo didn’t agree to.
Anushka and Prabhas have always created much buzz, because of their extremely close friendship. However, they have vehemently denied being in a relationship.
Currently, she is part of G Ashok’s modern-day thriller Bhaagamathie
A few weeks ago we saw Vikas Gupta lose his cool on Bigg Boss 11 after his co-contestant Shilpa Shinde mentioned actor-model Parth Samthaan’s name in front of him.

In spite of being as busy as we all are, there is something that we always find time for–intruding into other people’s personal lives.
Thanks to social media, our newly conquered field of free expression, there are a lot of people out there who do not miss a single chance to assert their opinion about others. A popular breed among such people are the infamous trolls that have now populated the social-media platforms. Their favourite pass-time? Hunting people down, to teach them lessons on ”morality.”
Their common targets are celebrities of course, judging them for what they say, eat, wear or for the people they hang out with. A fresh target of this sport of trolling is Milind Soman.
Since Sunday, there have been multiple media reports suggesting that in an attempt to hog the limelight from her Padmavati co-stars, actor Deepika Padukone attended the launch of its 3D trailer a few days ago although the event was initially supposed to have only the producers. Deepika’s name was not there in the guest list and it came as a surprise for the mediapersons, when minutes before the event, they were informed that the actor, who plays the titular role in the period drama, would attend the press meet.
In fact, it has been reported that this did not go down well with both Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, the other two lead actors. At the day of the trailer launch, Ranveer posted some cryptic tweets, which reports suggested insinuated that he was angry with Deepika.
“Saw #Padmavati 3D trailer last night! Holy smokes! It was jaw-dropping! Also 1st time I’m seeing myself in 3D so..! Hahaa! Pretty badass. Also stung by a Bee 4 the 1st time earlier today. Thought Id post a picture but then I was like I dont wanna make that Bee famoussss haha. In other firsts, it’s also the first day of the rest of my Life.
