It’s Raining Weddings In B’town
Bollywood seems to be on a wedding spree. Only last week reports of Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s alleged destination wedding went viral and now according to some reports, another couple is set to take their relationship to the next level by tying the knot soon. Speculations have been rife for quite some time now that Deepika Padukone and her rumoured boyfriend Ranveer Singh are prepping for their nuptials. According to latest reports, the bride-to-be has already started shopping for D-Day. Deepika, who is currently off duty, recuperating from her neck injury, is in her hometown Bengaluru and is apparently utilising her time for trousseau and jewellery shopping for the wedding with her mother and sister, Anisha Padukone. Reports suggest that the Padukone ladies have been hitting jewellery stores to pick the perfect one for the star’s big day. It is being speculated that the two families are deciding on a destination wedding, that is to happen sometime this year.
Ambani-Aamir’s 1000-Crore Magnum Opus
This could finally be happening, you guys! A legit, big-budget adaptation of the epic Mahabharata is reportedly being made in India. This major project is being helmed by the best mind in the business – Aamir Khan and according to sources, billionaire Mukesh Ambani will be co-producing this ambitious project. This will be a ‘one-off’ thing for Mukesh Ambani as he is not actively looking to produce films. But this undertaking will easily take nearly a decade of Aamir and Mukesh’s time. The franchise, expected to be on the lines of the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, is likely to have three to five parts, helmed by different filmmakers. Rumours are rife that international writers will be flown in to give their storyline a global appeal. The making of this epic is apparently the reason Aamir dropped out of the Rakesh Sharma biopic which is reportedly now starring Shah Rukh Khan. Aamir has been planning to make the Mahabharata for a while now, and now it looks like his dream project is finally coming to fruition. Aamir has maintained that he finds Krishna and Karan to be the most interesting characters in the epic so we’re assuming he will take on the role of one of them.
Woh Kaun Thi? Ash, Perhaps?
KriArj Entertainment has reportedly acquired the official rights of the 1964 hit, Woh Kaun Thi and according to the grapevine Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will play Sadhana’s role in the remake. The film will pay tribute to both Manoj Kumar and Sadhana. Shahid Kapoor is being considered for the male lead in the film. As per reports, he has developed a great rapport with Prernaa Arora, the co-owner of KriArj Entertainment during the shoot of Batti Gul Meter Chalu. If this turns out to be true, it would be interesting to see Shahid and Ash opposite each other.
Fatima On A Roll
Dangal girl Fatima Sana Sheikh has come a long way since her debut. She started her career on a high note as Aamir Khan’s ambitious wrestler-daughter in the film (before that she was the child star in Kamal Haasan’s Chachi 420). The actress, who is also to be seen as Aamir’s leading lady in Thugs Of Hindostan, has now been signed on to play one of the two female leads in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Chhuriyan (daggers). The story of two warring sisters demanded a fresh female collaboration, with TV actor Mrunal Thakur being cast as one of the two siblings. While, Kriti Sanon and her real-life sister were mentioned among the possible candidates for the two roles, Fatima and Mrunal Thakur will now be directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. Fatima has entered the big league after signing on for the part of Hrithik Roshan’s wife in mathematician Anand Kumar’s biopic.
Make Way For Boss Babe Leone
Sunny Leone seems to be enjoying her current phase of life at its best. It’s just been four days since she launched her cosmetic brand Starstruck, and it’s already the talk of the town. The first batch of the brand has been sold out, and her fans are now asking for more. Looking at the huge demand, Sunny is now planning to launch her Digital Makeup app, where she will not only give makeup tutorials but will also feature on FaceTime for users. “I had this plan in my mind since a long time. While buying make up we are always confused, what colour will look nice on us, what lipstick shade should we buy, eyeliner or no eyeliner and so on. This app will solve all such queries for girls. It will help you see yourself in real time, with makeup.” Sunny would soon resume shooting for her upcoming South Indian film and her much awaited biopic.
