Deepika Finally Ditches ‘RK’

When Deepika Padukone painted the French Riviera flaming pink at the Cannes red-carpet with her spectacular look, she opted for a pink high-low hem-gown featuring layers of dramatic ruffles and shoulders that mimic angel wings, by Ashi Studio. She rounded the look with nude make-up, green statement earrings and pink pumps. But what was most noticeable was that the ‘RK’ tattoo on her nape was suddenly gone. Deepika Padukone got inked when she was dating Ranbir Kapoor. It may be noted that Deepika had once said this about her tattoo on Koffee With Karan – “It’s something that I felt was correct, and even today, I don’t regret it. I have never thought about taking it off. I know the media is constantly saying ‘she has taken it off’, ‘she has lasered it’, ‘she has changed it’ and all kinds of things. It’s very much there and I have no plans of taking it off.” A change of heart there, DP?


Is RK on Alia’s List Of Conquests

Speaking of RK, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor’s dating rumours have been rampant ever since they started shooting for Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra. In an interview, when Alia was asked about her relationship status with Ranbir, the actor blushed and hid her face in her hands. Rumours of a romance sparking between the two have left everyone intrigued. On various occasions, Alia has dodged the link-up questions and has neither confirmed nor denied the speculations. In complete contrast, Alia took to Instagram to share a photo of the pair posing together at Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s wedding reception with a cryptic emoticon as caption that left tongues wagging. In an episode of Aap Ki Adalat, Alia was asked about her current relationship status with Ranbir. In response, Alia blushed and hid her face in her hands. However, maintaining her stance on not revealing her equation with Ranbir, Alia stated, “If there’s something, then I won’t say anything because I don’t want to accept these rumours.” You haven’t denied them either, Alia!


Madhuri Is Back & How

We’ve still not gotten over the super-duper star cast for Kalank  (Sanjay Dutt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha) and there is another rumour that has got us all excited about the film. Reportedly, our dhak dhak girl, Madhuri Dixit Nene will play the role of a dance teacher to Alia Bhatt and Kiara Advani. Madhuri is currently shooting for Kalank and is apparently undergoing rigorous training for her role. A source revealed that both Alia and Madhuri will start shooting for the dance number in a month’s time. While Alia keeps us updated thanks to her morning selfies, Madhuri had also taken to Twitter to share her excitement about joining the cast.

Bad News For Piggy Chops

Yes, Priyanka fans, you’ve heard us right. Quantico won’t be renewed for season four. While the show is currently screening its season three, it seems like this will be the finale for Priyanka’s show. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the first episode of season three was viewed by less than three million viewers in total and opened at a rating of 0.5. The network has thus decided to drop the show. The thriller which kickstarted on April 26, 2018, will only have 13 episodes this season as compared to season one and two, which had 22 episodes each. Quantico as a show was difficult to make logistically as the production for it took place in Toronto, with creator David Guggenheim based in New York and the writers room based out of Los Angeles. ABC thus decided to discontinue the profitable show. While Priyanka will be bidding farewell to Quantico, the actress will be returning to Indian cinema, three years after Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s 2015 period-drama Bajirao Mastani, opposite Salman Khan in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat, which is aiming for an Eid 2019 release.

Real Sanju V/S Reel Sanju

YRF has blown us away with the announcement of Ranbir Kapoor’s new movie Shamshera. The makers have announced that Sanjay Dutt will play Ranbir’s arch nemesis in the movie. The makers just tweeted out the news and we can’t keep calm! Talking about the film to DNA, Karan revealed a little about the characters by tweeting, “Shamshera is a highly ferocious and fearless character in the film. Therefore his nemesis, the villain had to be even more fierce and monumental in every aspect. Who’s better than Sanjay Sir to give us that impact on screen.” While Ranbir will be playing Sanjay Dutt in SanjuSanjay will be collaborating with him for the first time. It also happens to be Sanju baba’s first film with YRF!

Shotgun Shaadi for Sid-Disha?


Sidharth Malhotra, last seen in Neeraj Pandey’s Aiyaary is all set to play a thug in Shotgun Shaadi. The film, being produced by Ekta Kapoor, revolves around the plot of groom kidnapping, which is quite widespread in Bihar. While the actor has already come onboard for this one, the makers are looking for their leading lady. While many names have popped up (including Kriti Sanon and Shraddha Kapoor), a little birdie tells us that Disha Patani may have bagged the role. If everything goes well, it will be the first time that Sid and Disha will be pairing up for a flick together. Apart from this film, Disha already has Sangamithra in her kitty, where the actress will be seen essaying the role of a warrior princess.
