This boyfriend is furious!

“There is no way I will accept her. You can’t just go and have sex with people on National TV and then come back to say ‘I love you’. I believe that, 99% she will not even come back! And even if she does, I will not speak to her. Meeting her does not even figure on my list! I have my own image to take care of.” That was Dennis Nagpal lashing out at his girlfriend Bandgi’s antics with Puneesh Sharma in the bathroom and other assorted spots in the ‘Bigg Boss’ house. No wonder he’s hurting!


Padmavati’s French Flashback

Amidst the ongoing heated controversy, we traced the century-long journey, to the time Padmavati was a 1923 opera by Roussel, full of pomp and spectacle. An opera in two acts, it was a retelling of the legend recounted in Malik Muhammad Jayasi’s poem, Padmavat (1540). First performed at the Paris Opéra on June 1, 1923, Roussel had styled the work as an opéra-ballet, with dance numbers and “opportunities for spectacle”. Bhansali’s operatic version in 2008 had featured local actors, the original score, and a tiger, a python and an elephant, as it premiered at the Theatre Du Chatelet in Paris in 2008. Incidentally, neither of these had stirred up even the slightest whisper of controversy then!


Janhvi and Ishaan: Finally, confirmed!

Dharma Productions’ head honcho Karan Johar announced the upcoming debut of another set of star kids, Janhvi Kapoor and Ishaan Khattar in the Sairat remake, titled Dhadak. While Sridevi’s daughter Janhvi is also undergoing rigorous dance training sessions for her debut film, Karan’s designer BFF Manish Malhotra, is encouraging her to sport traditional wear to stay in character. The youngsters are reportedly in Udaipur where they have begun workshops for their love story based on honour killings.


PadMan Heads To The UN!

Akshay Kumar-Sonam Kapoor were headed to shoot the climax of their film at the United Nations, Manhattan! A UAE paparazzo shared exclusive pics of Akshay Kumar at the Dubai airport, nursing his cuppa. sources reveal that the PadMan team has received privileged permission to shoot its climax scene inside this sacrosanct world stage in the heart of Manhattan. The story of the film, based on the life of Tamilian entrepreneur Muruganantham who invented low-cost sanitary napkins to generate awareness about its usage and hygiene in rural areas, has found favour with the UN. Quite a coup, that!


Heart-broken? How about ‘Calling Karan’?

Karan Johar, who has immense experience in dealing with broken hearts, will now offer sound relationship advice to ordinary mortals too. As RJ for the FM radio station Ishq 104.8, the filmmaker will play love guru, live on air offering hope, advice and sympathy to the country’s lovelorn who call in seeking his help. ‘Calling Karan’? We sure will be in line!


Karni Sena exclusive: “Insure your lives!”

Even as the Karni Sena threatened to chop off Deepika Padukone’s nose and behead filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, an exclusive with the Karni Sena’s Mumbai chief, Jagdish Singh Bhanuja, saw him further lashing out at the film. Some of his gems… “What we wanted to tell Deepika is that, being a woman, she should know how to respect a woman. To show a queen dancing is the biggest insult of all.” Also, “We want to tell cine goers, insure your lives before entering cinema halls to watch Padmavati!” And finally, “In case Padmavati gets released, we will hold a nationwide bandh on December 1.”

The mystery behind Mogul not listed in T-Series’ 2018 films…

Both T-Series and Akshay Kumar stayed mum on the status of Mogul, the biopic that was to be made on the production house’s founder Gulshan Kumar. The film wasn’t announced as one of T-Series’ big ticket releases of 2018, despite it rumoured to go on the floors in the first quarter of 2018. Buzz in the industry is that Akshay backed out due to reservations about the film’s script. Others claimed Akshay has his hands full in 2018 with PadMan, 2.0, Gold and Kesari. Result: The fate of Mogul remains as mysterious as the death of the Bollywood mogul in 1997 on whom it was being made.
