Mr. Moon reviews the week that went by

Wedding Wows!

We brought you all the exciting updates... From the Anushka-Virat hush-hush engagement in Haridwar last December, to their impending wedding reception at the Four Seasons Hotel, the most likely dates for their civil marriage, to the priest who was also part of the Italy-bound entourage, the neighbours who have also received their invites, and the couple’s own love story in their own words… When cricket’s golden boy weds Bollywood’s loveliest lass, the fuss is absolutely justified!


Goodbye, Mr Kapoor

The outpouring of love on the demise of the silver screen’s most beautiful Shashi Kapoor was tremendously moving. The 21-gun salute farewell, live updates from his last journey, the tributes from industry denizens, and a revisiting of the inimitable charmer’s life and times, made for a bittersweet expression of the passing of an era.



All the inside fun, the dancing and the prancing, the rituals and the events as two small-screen sensations wed their respective lover-boys. TV’s much-loved funny girl Bharti tied the knot with fiancé Haarsh in a destination wedding in Goa, attended by all their friends and family, while the gorgeous Aashka Goradia married her American beau Brent Goble in a Christian ceremony followed by Hindu rituals in Gujarat.


Aamir Out, Shah Rukh In? brought you the real reason why Aamir Khan walked out of the Rakesh Sharma biopic, Salute. Apparently, the actor is planning to embark on his own long-time space odyssey, on the lines of Hollywood’s epic, Star Wars.

Aamir intends to produce, direct and act in this sci-fi project, which will encapsulate five sequels over ten years! As for Sidharth Roy Kapur’s biopic, Shah Rukh Khan has been approached to essay the first Indian to fly into space in 1984.


Who’s the sexiest of them all?

Priyanka Chopra dislodged Deepika Padukone to take top spot on the London-based newspaper Eastern Eye’s Sexiest Asian TV Actress list. Coming in second, was tele hottie Nia Sharma, with DP at third spot. Yes, we are kind of shocked too!


Good news for Abhi-Ash fans

After the drought, a veritable deluge…! Seven years since they last appeared in a film together, Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bahchan have not only given their unofficial nod to Phantom Films’ slice-of-life drama, Gulab Jamun, they are also on the verge of signing Shailesh R Singh’s untitled next. Time to pass around the erm…gulab jamuns!


Hello, Bauaa! had reported on November 22 that Aanand L Rai’s untitled ‘dwarf’ film with Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma would be called Bauaa. And now the title has been officially confirmed. With excitement growing over SRK’s chrome trousers and the special VFX, this Aanand L Rai film on a short man is already tall on intrigue!


Akshay has second thoughts…

The hint came when T-Series released a full-page ad in a Mumbai daily of its line-up of releases for 2018. Mogul, the biopic based on the life of the production house’s founder, the late Gulshan Kumar, did not feature on that list. Turns out the star has reservations about the screenplay. Or then he is simply worried about essaying a controversy-tinged character…


Exes and Foes!

Ranbir Kapoor’s exes continue to detest each other. When asked to shoot the promo of an awards show together, Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone not only declined but also threatened not to attend the show itself if coerced further! The two continue to give each other a wide berth, whether at birthday bashes or even at the gym. Hell hath no fury…!


Salman red-lights Iulia’s plans

Salman Khan is quite the generous beau but he put his foot down when it came to Iulia Vantur’s plans for a grand getaway à deux this festive season. After completing his gruelling shoot for Tiger Zinda Hai, the hunky superstar has plunged straight into filming Race 3. Besides, there is his birthday on December 27, which he traditionally celebrates with his huge family. Ms. Vantur might just have to go off with her own family instead!
