Shah Rukh Khan, Sonakshi Sinha Instagram First Looks of 'It Happened One Night'

Shah Rukh Khan took to his official Instagram account and shared the first look of his upcoming film 'It Happened One Night'. The film stars Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead roles. The post has an intriguing look of Sidharth in which he is seen wearing handcuffs and his close up look is intensely catchy.

Karan Johar who is co-producing the film shared the following image on his Instagram handle. The film's three leads Sidharth Malhotra, Sonakshi Sinha and Akshaye Khanna all have intense looks.

It Happened One Night First Look

The film will be produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and BR Films.

While sharing the first look, Shah Rukh Khan captioned his post-
What exactly happened that night? #ItHappenedOneNight
@s1dofficial @aslisona #AkshayeKhanna@karanjohar @boo.i.am @junochopra@brstudiosllp

Sonakshi Sinha posted another image of her own look-


This would be the first film in Sidharth Malhotra and Sonakshi Sinha will be seen together onscreen.

The movie had been in talks for quite some time and its original title was 'Ittefaq' but the first look now reveals it to be 'It Happened One Night'.

It is to be noted here that this film is the official remake of 1969 hit film 'Ittefaq' which starred Rajesh Khanna, Nanda and Sujit Kumar. It was about a painter who was extremely passionate about her work and loved his painting more than his wife. When his wife destroyed one of his paintings he threatened to kill her and left the house. On returning he found out that his wife was already dead and the police then arrested the painter.

Fans would be eager to see if there is any twist in the remake and that if 'It Happened One Night' would unfold on the same plot.

Directed by Abhay Chopra, grandson of BR Chopra who is famous for making the hit TV serial on the Indian epic Mahabharata, 'It Happened One Night' is scheduled to release on November 03 as per the poster.

Shah Rukh Khan Not Included, Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan Make It To Oscars New Members

As part of their annual invitation to new members in their body, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the governing body responsible for the Oscars, sent out 774 new invitations this year, The Hollywood Reporter reported. This is a record figure considering that last year 683 invitations were issued and in 2015, 322 were invited.

Amitabh, Salman, Amir and Priyanka in Oscar New Member List, Shahrukh not inclided

Among these 774 invitations this year, many Indian film personalities have made it. The list is studded with Indian stars which include Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Deepika Padukone, Priyanaka Chopra, Irrfan Khan, among others. But hang on! Where is Shah Rukh Khan? No, our romance and Bollywood king didn’t make it to the list.

The list does not only include Indian actors but directors and other members of our film fraternity as well. Anand Patwardhan known for making seminal documentaries like 'Pitra', 'Putra Aur Dharamyuddha', has made it to the list. Others include- costume designer Arjun Bhasin, sound designer and mixer Amrit Pritam Dutta.

Directors Mrinal Sen, Goutam Ghose have also been listed.

As per the Hollywood Reporter- “The basic requirement is that a candidate must have demonstrated exceptional achievement in the field of theatrical motion pictures, although each branch then has its own specific requirements.”

Does not Shah Rukh Khan qualify for these requirements? Has he not demonstrated exceptional achievement in his movies like 'Swades', 'Chake De! India' and 'Paheli', among others?

It is to be noted here that the record number of invitations sent out this year by the Oscars governing body is to ensure diversification in terms of female and non-white members. The AMPAS body reports its new mantra is 39 percent female and 30 percent non-white.

Since the last two years, nominees and winners list majorly included white people and many from the Hollywood had demonstrated their opinions against the AMPAS selection process including the famous black actor Will Smith.

With this new list, we hope more and more non-white and females are included in the list and the Oscars 2018 witnesses a surge in their numbers.

Dhinchak Pooja Lands Into Trouble, Delhi Traffic Police Says Necessary Action Will Be Taken

India’s new YouTube sensation Dhinchak Pooja has landed into great trouble with the Delhi Traffic Police and that too because of her latest song 'Dilon Ka Shooter'. In the music video she is seen riding a scooter without wearing helmet and someone unfortunately noticed it.

Dhinchak Pooja Delhi Traffic Police  Necessary Action
Yes, Mohit Singh of Delhi tweeted about this crime and tagged the official twitter handle of the Delhi Traffic Police. He tweeted in Hindi and when translated into English it would read- “In your context (as in Delhi Traffic Police context) this girl is riding her scooter without her helmet on and singing loudly”.

The earnest Delhi Traffic Police replied to this tweet- “Thanks, kindly tweet with date, time and exact place so that necessary action can be taken,”

Mohit Singh didn’t stop here and actually tweeted this- “Surajmal Vihar, Time: 3:10 pm and Date: June 24, 2017, Thank you”

Delhi Traffic Police replied that necessary action will be taken. We are not sure yet if any legal case would be filed until the officials find Pooja’s true identity and what needs to be seen is if any leniency would be granted considering she was just making a video song.

What’s to be noted here is that Mohit didn’t reveal anything about the context of this alleged crime, never revealing that the girl was Dhinchak Pooja and that she was making a video song.

Dhinchak Pooja took social media by storm and became a YouTube sensation after her song Selfie Maine Le Li Aaj went viral on the video sharing platform. Her other popular songs include 'Swag Wali Topi', 'Daaru Daaru Daaru'.

After the series of tweets by Mohit Singh what happened was a regular thing- hundreds of memes! Yes, twitterati are all over the place sharing funny memes about Dhinchak Pooja. Let us look at few of the most hilarious ones-

'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' Song Hans Mat Pagli: Akshay Kumar Is All Wooing Bhumi Pednekar

Akshay Kumar cannot hold his love for Bhumi Pednekar in the new song of his upcoming film 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' which was released today. Akshay Kumar took to his official twitter handle and released the new romantic song titled 'Hans Mat Pagli'.

He captioned his tweet- “Keshav aur Jaya ki unique love story ka first song, #HansMatPagli out now.”

Has Mat Pagli Video Song of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha

In the song Keshav (Akshay Kumar) is seen doing all those things that an Indian lover does for his love. He chases her, takes incessant photos of her, and waits outside her house, among other things. Love is in the air! Just like any other girl, Jaya realizes this but Keshav continues his romance. There is no dialogue in the song but we can be certain that this wooing eventually was successful because in the trailer which was released earlier they got married.

Watch the Hans Mat Pagli Video Song of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha:


The song is composed by Vicky Prasad and playback sung by Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal.

Earlier Akshay Kumar had shared the first still of the song and captioned his tweet-“ Ek baar palat ke dekh le to din ban jaega, #HasMatPagli pyaar ho jaega. Song coming soon. @ToiletTheFilm @psbhumi”

Just recently the trailer of 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' was released which was received well by the audience and was applauded by his fans. Now the simple and sweet song' Hans Mat Pagli' is also doing rounds on the internet.

'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' is a movie about Keshav who fights to install proper sanitation system in his village when his wife Jaya leaves him because she has to defecate in the morning out in the open with other women of the village. Keshav goes against his family, villagers, their superstition and fights against the corrupt government. Clearly the film is a subtle take and support of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Swachha Bharat Abhiyan.

Directed by Shree Narayan Singh, 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' is scheduled to release on August 11.

Never Before, Never Again: 'Dangal' Becomes First Indian Movie To Gross Rs 2000 Crore

Aamir Khan starrer 'Dangal' is knowing no bounds. The sports drama has now collected Rs 2000 crore worldwide according to a Forbes report. The report stated that with minting Rs 2.5 crore in its 53rd day in China, 'Dangal' has become the first Indian movie in history to gross the 2k crore figure.

Earlier the film had achieved the feat of being the fifth highest grossing non-Hollywood film in China.

Dangal Box Office Collection Gross to 2000 Crore

Aamir Khan who is currently busy in the filming of his upcoming movie 'Thugs of Hindostan' has not spoken anything about this great success but last month he was quoted saying to the IANS about Dangal’s roaring box-office figures in China- "It was unprecedented. We are pleasantly surprised."


'Dangal' became the highest grossing Hindi film ever in India after its release minting Rs 375 crore in India alone. This feat was later surpassed by 'Bahubali 2' which became the first Indian film to gross more than Rs 1000 crore worldwide. Now the fates have change and 'Dangal' stands at the coveted position of being the highest grossing Indian film ever globally.

In China Aamir's film released on May 05 as 'Shuai Jiao Baba' that translates to Let’s Wrestle, Dad.

The film chronicles the struggle of Mahavir Singh Phogat who leaves no stone unturned to teach wrestling to his daughters.

No Need Of Disrespectful Words To Sell Film: SRK On Jab Harry Met Sejal 'Intercourse' Issue

Pahlaj Nihlani’s CBFC board has a good knack of giving finger to every movie that is far from being obscene or uses vulgar language? Hang on! Is the word ‘intercourse’ vulgar?

In the second mini trail of upcoming Imtiaz Ali film starring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma- 'Jab Harry Met Sejal', Anushka uses the word ‘intercourse’ as part of their indemnity bond.

Jab Harry Met Sejal SRK Speaks On Intercourse Issue
PC: Twitter

After the tiff with Pahlaj Nihani who had earlier condemned the use of the word saying that it needs to be removed if the film needs U/A certification, Shah Rukh Khan on the day of Eid broke his silence over the issue and said that he doesn’t need the word ‘intercourse’ to sell his film.

After the trail’s release Pahlaj Nihlani had said, “You take voting from the public and I will clear the word (intercourse) on the promo and the film also. I want 1 lakh votes and I want to see that India has changed and Indian families want their 12-year-old kids to understand the meaning of this word (intercourse).”

Shah Rukh Khan spoke to the media and said- “I think I am below 18, so I cannot vote (laughed). On a serious note, neither I, nor anyone in the film – Imtiaz, Irshad, Pritam da or anyone would use any disrespectful word that hurts a family or anyone’s sentiment. We are yet to send the film to the censors and they should watch the whole film to decide.”

Watch the usage of the word 'intercourse' in Mini Trail 2 of Jab Harry Met Sejal:


'Jab Harry Met Sejal' is scheduled to release on August 04. The film is Anushka Sharma’s third collaboration with Shah Rukh Khan after 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' and 'Jab Tak Hai Jaaan'.

5 Handsome Actors From Pakistan Who Have Left Indian Girls Weak On Their Knees

While there's a lot of heat between India and Pakistan, there are few topics that we unanimously agree on. That is, Bollywood > Pakistani Cinema, Pakistani Coke Studio> Indian Coke Studio, or Pakistani men more good-looking than the ones in India. Now, we won't go and vindicate that point because we all know that (coughs *Fawad Khan* coughs) but we will definitely extend our knowledge and see if that's true for other Pakistani men too.

Handsome Actors From Pakistan

So without further ado, we pick our top 5 Pakistani men who can make any girl weak in their knees:

Fawad Khan

Need to say more? Fawad Khan created a tumult with his Bollywood entry and that proves that he is the epitome of gorgeousness. Literally, there has been never a more fangirling moment of any actor (not even SRK) than that has been with Fawad. He broke many hearts at once when he stated that he is married in an interview.
He became a hearthrob even since he appeared in Zindagi Gulzar Hai and later made his entry in B-town and was seen romancing Sonam Kapoor in Khoobsurat. His fan following covers women from 16 to 60 and finally let's just say, Thank God for Fawad Khan!

Fawad khan

Ali Zafar

Ever since we saw him in his famous song Sun Re Sajaniya, Ali Zafar became an overnight sensation. The pop artist ruled hearts with his soulful songs and his drop dead gorgeousness. The famous singer has also extended his leg to acting and has appeared in many films in Bollywood as well. That perfect face especially his sharp jawline has left many drooling over him.

Ali zafar

Atif Aslam

Atif does not fit in the normal conventional type of beauty because he is way beyond that. This man exudes a rare innocence and allure that is hard to find in any man. His soulfulness makes him attractive and the proof of it is his billion fans both in India and Pakistan.
There have been transitional phases of Atif Aslam - from a raw hunk during his Jal band days to his gentleman shift in his recent 'Bol' movie or otherwise. Atif has ruled Indian hearts ever since the release of his initial albums, and boy, he did create an uproar. We would also give brownie points to his blessed voice that transcends all boundaries and touches your heart right on.

Atif Aslam

Imran Abbas

This man enjoys a huge fan base in Pakistan and is the perfect dream boy for anyone with his charismatic personality. The chocolate boy of Pakistan entered Bollywood with Creature 3D alongside Bipasha Basu. Unfortunately, the film did not fare well but Imran has been in highlight ever since.

Imran Abbas

Mikaal Zulfiqar

Mikaal's drop dead model face can be only compared to Indian Rajnish Duggal or Milind Soman. His sultry looks are definitely way beyond what we see in Bollywood. Mikaal is a huge star in Pakistan and entered Bollywood with 2008 film Shoot on Sight. There's no doubt about his good looks, we only hope to see him more in upcoming ventures

Mikaal Zulfiqar

While there's a lot of heat between India and Pakistan, there are few topics that we unanimously agree on. That is, Bollywood > Paki...

Karisma Kapoor Birthday Special: 4 Reasons Why Karisma Kapoor Is A Better Actress Than Kareena Kapoor

Karisma Kapoor turns 43 today. Happy birthday there! Enigmatic, stylish and a superb actress, she is known to break the taboo of feminine portrayal onscreen. During the 90s and early 2000s Karisma Kapoor catapulted to stardom with her diversity in film choices. From doing a blockbuster like 'Raja Hindustani' to women-centric role in 'Zubeidaa', she is one of the greatest talents of the Kapoor clan.

There was no male Kapoor star in the 90s and Karisma single-handedly managed to keep the Kapoor legacy intact and be its flag bearer.

To single out she along with her sister Kareena Kapoor are the only two actresses from Kapoor family who have achieved such fame and filmography in contemporary times. On her birthday let’s analyze why Karisma Kapoor is a better actress than Kareena Kapoor.

Karisma Kapoor Better Actress Than Kareena Kapoor

Karisma has better filmography than Kareena

Undeniably Kareena Kapoor is a great actress but when we look at her earlier filmography her roles can only be trolled, just to cite- Poo from 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham'. Karisma on the other hand made great film choices in her film itinerary. Her intense roles in 'Raja Hindustani', 'Zubeidaa', 'Fiza', among others are at par with any actress of her generation.

Karisma’s was a struggle; Kareena’s was a cake walk

When Karisma Kapoor landed in the films she was barely 16 years old and had to struggle a lot. She left her schooling midway to pursue a career in acting. Kareena on the other hand got into scene like living in a cake. She already had the silver spoon of being Karisma’s younger sister and directly jumped into working under big banners.

Kareena’s stardom was an easy fix

When Kareena came into scene, there were brand endorsing, glamour had taken over acting skills and pay scale of actresses were more. In case of Karisma in the 90s there were no such things as brand endorsements, evidently no internet to reach out to the fans and certainly no easy ways to have a direct contact with your fans- no Instagram and no twitter. There was only thing- cinema. Despite of all these, to achieve such insane proportions of aura and stardom is commendable.

Karisma=simple roles, Kareena=glamorous roles

Why Is Karisma Kapoor Better Actress Than Kareena

In India glamour, looks and starriness play a huge role in basing yourself as a superstar. Not that Karisma didn't any play any glamorous roles but most of her filmography tended to be simple without a peg of glamour. Simple and homely house wive with simple dresses. 'Biwi No. 1', 'Raja Hindustani' are a couple of examples. Look at Kareena, her roles mostly have been of those rich urban girl with loads of glamour attached to them. 'Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham', 'Yaadein', among numerous others could be fairly taken into account in this argument.

Karisma Kapoor turns 43 today. Happy birthday there! Enigmatic, stylish and a superb actress, she is known to break the taboo of feminine p...

Tubelight First Day Collection Is Salman's Lowest In 5 Years But Only Behind Bahubali 2 in 2017

The kind of fan base that Salman Khan enjoys is insane and one need not to be led into believing that the epic proportions of his followers alone can mint millions of dollars at ticket counters. Why? Because perhaps Salman is the only superstar in India on whose films one can reckon upon when it comes to box-office. But this time it seems that his fan base possesses an ambivalent attitude of their loyalty to bhai.

Tubelight First Day Box-Office Collection
PC: Twitter

'Tubelight' released on June 23 during the Eid just like previous years. But as was the expectation (or not?), it didn’t do fairly well at the box-office. It collected Rs 21.15 crore according to trade analyst Taran Adarsh.

Not that this figure is any bad. A film which opens to more than Rs 20 crore is more often than not stamped as a decent money spinner. But as far as Salman is concerned this figure cannot be equated anywhere near to a roar in the revenue front.

Taran Adarsh took to twitter and tweeted-
Clearly he intends to graph us through the itinerary of Salman’s previous Eid releases. Juxtaposing all one after the other, it is very clear that 'Tubelight' is Salman’s lowest first day opening in 5 years. His last film 'Sultan' had collected more than Rs 35 crore on the first day itself.

Taran also tweeted about the first day opening collections of the movies in 2017-
Only 'Bahubali 2' this year had better first day opening than 'Tubelight'. We all know 'Raees' minted more than Rs 330 crore and Jolly LLB 2 approximately Rs 250 crore. So it can be safely said that despite of the relatively bad first day opening, 'Tubelight' will surely surpass the 200-crore mark.

According to boxofficeindia.com, 'Tubelight' collected Rs 6.5 crore in UAE-Dubai where the film was released on June 22, a day before India release.

Now that there is a weekend ahead and Monday is a national holiday in India owing to the Muslim festival Eid, it would be interesting to see how 'Tubelight' fairs in terms of money.

'Tubelight' is a war drama and is based on 1962 Indo-Sino War. Salman plays the role of a simpleton who goes into grief when his brother Sohail Khan departs to the war-front. The film is more about faith and less about the war.

Keep watching this space for more on 'Tubelight' box-office collection.

The kind of fan base that Salman Khan enjoys is insane and one need not to be led into believing that the epic proportions of his followers...

Tubelight Twitter Review: Will The Film's Fate Alter Or Super-Stardom Is Enough?

Farhan Akhtar in an interview had once said that trailer of a film plays a very decisive role for the audience-turn-up when the film unfolds on silver screen.  Perhaps it’s beyond just the trailer and, the pool of people at ticket counters start to factor in more so when the whole ‘intention and feel’ of what has been made is unveiled to the cine-goers prior to the film’s release. Meaning- trailer and teasers decide a lot undeniably but everything transcends beyond these when a superstar is attached to any film. No matter how the trailer appears or the first look is received before the release; super-stardom has its own perks.

Also, it can be stated undeniably that a film’s fate is decided by the audience. So naturally the super stardom discussed above becomes vulnerable- vulnerable not in the sense of the actor’s fate but the film’s. This is where, beyond the fate and silver dollars, the exclusivity and direct speech of cine buffs come into play- and we must give the credit to social media.

Tubelight Twitter Review: Twitter Reaction
PC: Twitter
The superstar Salman Khan’s 'Tubelight' has been released. Super-stardom paid off, for millions flocked to the cinemas on the first day. But social media especially Twitter made the film’s fate vulnerable because now the audience has a direct say on the film.

So let us see how the audience reacted to 'Tubelight' on Twitter and if anyhow the Twitter reviews are going to alter its fate in the coming days-






Naturally the reviews have been mixed. Few have all good words and praises for 'Tubelight' and few are cursing it. But there is no dearth of doubt that these direct reviews, the one-on-one direct say about the film are going to somehow influence the fate of 'Tubelight'. After live reviews on Twitter coming into the scene, reviews as they used to happen and have been happening by some select few people do not matter anymore.

I Hoped Bad Things For Anurag Basu During Jagga Jasoos: Ranbir Kapoor

Long delayed, much-awaited and shrouded in controversies- 'Jagga Jasoos' is finally releasing on July 14. Film critic Rajeev Masand recently interviewed film’s leading man Ranbir Kapoor and director Anurag Basu. It is candid as anything. No filters, no blinkers! To the point, honest and direct!

Ranbir Kapoor Anurag Basu Jagga Jasoos Interview with Rajeev Masanad

We all know various reasons and rumours for the long delay of 'Jagga Jasoos' like Ranbir and Katrina’s personal falls outs, Anurag Basu’s much needed break after 'Barfi', among others.

Obviously these would affect relationships both on sets and outside, and hats off to Ranbir Kapoor when he bluntly said in the interview that at one point it was so frustrating he would hope bad things happen to Anurag Basu and that he would even abuse him.

Watch Ranbir Kapoor and Anurag Basu (Jagga Jasoos) Interview with Rajeev Masanad:


The roughly 19 minutes of interview was all candid and frank. He opened up about his working equation with Katrina Kaif. In a recent event Katrina Kaif had said that she would never work with Ranbir Kapoor again. Ranbir cleared the things up on this and said he immediately called up Katrina after he heard the news and fired at her, adding there is no reason they wouldn’t work together.

The most hilarious bit of the conversation was when Anurag Basu confessed that delays as far as film was concerned had become a joke on the sets. He narrated that once he asked the trolley guy to pace down the trolley and the cinematographer behind the camera said- “Fir to ye kal pohochega waha (The camera will reach to that point tomorrow)”

When Rajeev asked Ranbir if his father Rishi Kapoor ever interfered and affected his decisions about signing films he said- “Never, my father leaves my film choices on me and only once did he question about 'Jaggao Jasoos' that why is it taking so long”

Last year when Rajeev Masand had interviewed Ranbir Kapoor, the actor had confessed that he wanted to unlearn everything and rediscover himself as an actor. This time Anurag Basu himself said that he could feel Ranbir’s rediscovery and the transition he has achieved from their last film together.

With the insights from the interview it seems that 'Jagga Jasoos' is one of the most honest films made in Bollywood recently and we all hope it runs successfully at the ticket counters.
