After months of searching, makers have finally found their Hazel for the Hindi adaptation of Josh Boone’s 2014 Hollywood romantic drama, ‘The Fault In Our Stars’.

Sanjana Sanghi who has worked previously in ‘Hindi Medium’, ‘Rockstar’, and ‘Fukrey Returns’, is all set to make her big break.

Last year, we told you that Sushant Singh Rajput was roped in for the project and will be seen stepping into Ansel Elgort’s role. And now the makers have roped in 21-year-old Sanjana, who will be seen with Sushant.

This is a big break for Sanjana, and along with her, famous casting director Mukesh Chhabra will be making his directorial debut.

“I met Sanjana while casting for ‘Rockstar’ and found her to be a dynamic girl with great energy. After a few years, she reconnected for a few ad jobs and this time she came across as a mature young lady and to my surprise, a fabulous actor. I knew instantly that I would love to make a film with her one day,” Mukesh told the Mumbai Mirror.   

Once ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ script was ready, she fit right in. She’s the perfect face and I can’t wait to create magic with this talented girl.”

That smile is an absolute lie and a failed cover up for a petrified me struggling to find my balance on a rather aggressive speed boat

A post shared by Sanjana Sanghii (@sanjanaSanghii96) on Dec 3, 2017 at 10:04pm PST

Apparently, Sanjana caught their eyes during the auditions and they just knew that she was the perfect pick as the leading lady and no one could have done it better.

Taking to his Instagram, Sushant also shared the news and wrote, “The beautiful @sanjanaSanghi96 will be co-starring with me in the remake of the Hollywood hit #TheFaultInOurStars directed by @castingchhabra & music by @arrahman@foxstarhindi”.

A post shared by Sushant Singh Rajput (@sushantsinghrajput) on Mar 18, 2018 at 9:33pm PDT

Based on the bestselling book by John Green, the film revolves around Hazel Grace Lancaster, a 16-year-old cancer patient who is pressured by her folks to attend a support group, where she meets Augustus Waters, another cancer patient who lost his leg due to bone cancer and both fall in love.

Though the film is a remake of the hit Hollywood movie, it will be adapted as per Indian sensibilities.

Well, remaking movies is Bollywood’s trend and it would be interesting to see how this narrative comes to life and if it will be loved by the viewers as much as the original one.

We are not very sure if Sushant is the right pick as Augustus, but you never really know he might just surprise you with his performance on-screen.

Till then, let us know if you think Sushant and Sanjana are the right pick for this movie or did you have someone else in mind for the roles?

Bollywood is minting millions with every huge movie they produce and the hefty pay package of the lead actors is pretty much proof of it. If you always thought how much your favourite actress earned per film, then let us break it to you tha it’s perhaps more than what you might earn in 10 years of working.

If you always thought that the women in Bollywood are extremely underpaid compared to their male co-stars, then you got to read this list. We agree that there’s still a huge disparity, but it’s good to know that they are not way behind.

The duality of Alia Bhatt is an alarming element indeed. While on hand she can make us go ‘awww’ with her uber cute looks, she also holds the power to knock the wind out of us with her sexiness. Throw in the fact that she is a powerhouse of stellar performances, and we have our millennial icon before. But most importantly, she is also someone with whom we can relate to. 

Despite coming from an influential Bollywood family, she made her way to the top by focusing on her performances and entertaining us all these years. Her calendar might be booked with her work but she always manages to find time for her loved ones and especially her cat Edward Bhatt. As the beautiful actress celebrates her 25th birthday today, we bring you some unseen and rare pictures of her with her family that you just can’t miss:

Her dream to rule the tinsel town, her carefree attitude and a visible desire to fulfill her every goal, makes Alia Bhatt not just another face in the film industry, but a person with whom every millennial can connect with.

playing dress up for life 🙌

A post shared by Alia ✨�� (@aliaabhatt) on Nov 13, 2017 at 6:35pm PST

She started her career as a supercilious high school girl, clueless about real life and then when on to play a completely opposite character that made our head spin. She has been the girl-next-door, a girl who has been sexually abused, a drug addict, a person with an array of emotional issues, a headstrong girl who works with her own rules, and she has convincingly gotten into the skin of each of these roles. 

Why Popular Star Kid Alia Bhatt Is Every Millennial Guy's Crush© Twitter

She is that face in the industry that needs to introduction. She might have been launched by one of the biggest banners in the Hindi film industry but boy, has she made her way up the ladder purely with her skills. She might have landed her first film ‘Student of the Year’ without much struggle but with every film since then, she has only grown as an actor. She is one of those few star kids who is known more for their skills and talent rather than just belonging from an influential family.

Here are the five reasons that make Alia the instant choice for every millennial out there: 

1. Sheer Versatility At Such A Young Age 

It’s been a little more than five years now but she has become the millennials favorite already, and all the credit goes to the different types of roles she has picked along the way, which has only highlighted how versatile she is for someone so young. Be it her playing Veera Tripathi, Vaidehi Trivdei, Ananya Swaminathan or Kumari Pinky, she has slipped into each character with convincing ease.

2. She Invokes A Sense Of Relatability

She is 25 and has already has won several awards. She might be a star kid, a prodigy of Dharma Productions but she is also everything that a millennial is. From hanging out with her friends just like us, leaving her shoot in the middle to attend her best friend’s wedding, traveling with her loved ones to being publically vocal about her strong bond with her sibling. This makes her the ultimate millennial icon.

I wonder how, I wonder why 🎵

3. She Is Experimental & Makes Every Role Work For Her 

Look at actors around you, most of them already have their genres fixed, but when it comes to Alia, she has always displayed an urge to experiment. She is someone who can be the airhead Shanaya but also an unabashed Veera! She understands the value of doing commercial films but also doesn’t fear to pick roles which lean towards artistic. She balances it all. While playing a snooty role might be easy, but bringing the character of a rural sexual abused drug addict to life and playing that feisty, unyielding role is not just physically but emotionally exhausting as well. But she has proved that she can step into any role with ease and doesn’t need a genre to rule the industry. 


A post shared by Alia ✨�� (@aliaabhatt) on Feb 13, 2018 at 12:11am PST

And now we will be seeing her in Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Gully Boy’ and Meghna Gulzar’s ‘Raazi’ in two completely different roles that will impress us yet again.

Movies or in this case MY movies aren’t just something I do for a living.. it’s kinda the reason I feel like I’m alive ☺ï¸? SO…On my 25th birthday I’ve randomly picked out two images from the 25th DAY of shoot of RAAZI and and and the TRAILER will be out 25 days from today(9th April).. Happy Birthday to me 💫ðŸ?­â˜ºï¸?

A post shared by Alia ✨�� (@aliaabhatt) on Mar 14, 2018 at 7:34pm PDT

4. She Is Relatable AF

While many of you might envy her and think life is a breeze for Alia, let us tell you that just like any 20-something, she has her own ups and downs. The actress is still on the cusp of making it big in her career and is still figuring her life like many of us. She too has family, friends and relationship issues.

in the maze of her imagination 🦋

A post shared by Alia ✨�� (@aliaabhatt) on Feb 23, 2018 at 7:03am PST

She is just like one of us who would love to skip work and spend a lazy day sleeping and eating. Like us, she too loves quotes and connects to it (might even take screengrabs like us, you never know). Well, once she even said how she loves stalking Ryan Gosling and would love to take a picture on Mars. If that’s not relatable, I don’t know what is. 

5. Taking Trolls In Her Stride Like A Boss

No one can forget the goof up she made in Karan Johar’s talk show. Immediately, she became the target of netizens and a national joke. From memes, videos to jokes, everyone on the Internet didn’t spare a chance to make fun of her. And then she got back with the awesome AIB video accepting all the hate and trolls, laughing at her own self. You need to have a really, really strong attitude to mock yourself publically and the video only increased our respect for her. 

From her outstanding performance to her bad-ass attitude, Alia is the true shahenshah of Bollywood, but we are sure you already knew that!

When it comes to celebrating science and its theories, legendary scientist Stephen Hawking’s name always makes it to the top of the list.

He didn’t just have an exceptional mind that devised various theories about space and time but he also introduced us to various philosophies about universe and humanity. But today we lost the legendary scientist, and the world of science will never be the same.

He took his last breath at the age of 76 at his home in Cambridge.

But let us tell you that it wasn’t just his work in physics that makes him so interesting, it was also that he was an ace actor as well. After all, how many scientists do you know who were as cool as him? He had the ultimate attitude and there is no one who can say otherwise!

Times Stephen Hawking Made Fun Of Sheldon Copper© Twitter

Hawking was loved for his wit which we often got to see in many of his appearances in famous movies and television series.

Among his many cameos, we just love the way he trolled Sheldon Cooper like a boss in ‘The Big Bang Theory’. If you don’t watch the show you may not know this, but Hawking made seven cameo appearances in the series and was also part of their 200th episode.

Remember him singing “Happy Birthday” to Sheldon over Skype? That’s was epic right?

Moments between him and Sheldon will always remain special!

And we also can’t forget this episode ever!

And this one!

This one is just so cool!

Another one for all the true fans!

Meanwhile, the entire cast of ‘Big Bang Theory’ paid a moving tribute to him. Johnny Galecki who plays Leonard took to his Instagram and shared a picture of Hawking with the team. He wrote, “RIP #stephenhawking Not only your brilliance, but your sense of humor will be sorely missed by all,” . Kaley Cuoco, who plays Penny, shared the same photo, writing, “It was truly such an honor getting to work with the incredible Stephen Hawking.”

RIP #stephenhawking Not only your brilliance, but your sense of humor will be sorely missed by all. “Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny.” — Stephen Hawking

Dressed in a simple kurta-pyjama with intense eyes as he climbs into a police van flanked by cops, Rajkumar Rao paints the perfect picture of a convicted terrorist. But the sheer fearlessness on his visage and his angelic smile, all signs of a man who has no fear of consequences, is the chilling image that will replay in your head. 

From explosions, police brutality, to talks about jihad, everything about Hansal Mehta’s ‘Omerta’ trailer leaves you stunned and sends a chill down your spine. The film is based on the life of Ahmad Omar Saeed Shaikh, a British-born terrorist of Pakistani descent, who was freed in exchange for passengers of the hijacked Indian Airlines plane in 1999. The trailer of the film is finally out and it is every bit as terrifying yet exhilarating. 

Omerta Trailer: Rajkummar Rao Is Simply Terrifying© Omerta

Hansal Mehta and Rajkummar Rao’s movie is one of their bravest attempts to date. What makes ‘Omerta’ an exceptional movie is the fact that the content is not easy to make or sell, after all, it revolves around the life of an unsympathetic man whose main goal was death and destruction. 

One look at the trailer and you will totally understand what makes it so extraordinary.  The trailer introduces you to a young Rajkummar who is a trainee and later becomes a full-fledged terrorist, undertaking various assignments in the name of “jihad”.

Omerta Trailer: Rajkummar Rao Is Simply Terrifying© Omerta

In the beginning you hear a terrifying command being given to Rao, “Is raaste pe khatron ka saamna karne ke liye tumhe apne jazbaat pe qaabu rakhna hoga. Training ka sahi istemal karke humare jihad ko apne manzil tak le jana hoga.”

Talking about the trailer, Rao said, “Omerta is among the most researched films that I have worked on till date. We actually visited some of the places frequented by Omar in London during his transformation from an LSE graduation student to becoming this deadly terrorist. I needed to feel and touch this man’s past – to ingest him. It was not an easy journey for me to take. With Omerta and Hansal Sir, we have a combination that will probably leave you stunned. There will be this moment of shock and silence as the end credits roll,” said Rajkummar Rao at the Omerta trailer launch.”

The trailer is so on point that it takes you into the reel world of terror. ‘Omerta’ will hit theatres on April 20 and is definitely one that we are waiting for.

When Heath Ledger played the iconic Joker in ‘The Dark Knight’, the actor left an imprint on our minds and convinced us that no one can ever recreate the role to perfection like he did. His role not only earned him a posthumous Oscar but also redefined what it meant to be a true villain on the big screen.

Director Tommy Wiseau Wants To Play The Joker & Here Is His Audition Tape© Twitter

The character Ledger played was so iconic, that when he passed away due to an accidental prescription drug overdose, thinking of anyone else stepping into his shoes was next to impossible.

Recently, we heard that we are soon going to get a standalone Joker origin film. In fact, if Variety reports are to be believed, then Joaquin Pheonix was in talks with Todd Phillips for the role, however, someone else is trying to stake claim to the important role.

Tommy Wiseau- the man, who directed, produced and starred in ‘The Room’, tweeted Philip asking him to send him a message about the role.

Todd.  DM me.

— Tommy Wiseau (@TommyWiseau) February 10, 2018

In his next tweet, he stated that “Yes! I want to be THE JOKER!” Well, we don’t know if Philip will be interested in this or not, but Wiseau is quite adamant and wants this role for himself. And that’s just not it, he even came up with an audition tape where he can be seen playing the Joker.

Decked up exactly like the Joker, the actor can be seen yelling, shouting and laughing creepily all the while. You also see actor Greg Sestero making a cameo as Batman. Wiseau indeed knows what he is doing and looks pretty convincing to some extent. But obviously, something is missing. 

Taking to his Twitter he also asked what the viewers thought of his tape:

What do you think of me as The Joker?

Link in story.

See @bf_movie March 30th#tommywiseau…

— Tommy Wiseau (@TommyWiseau) March 12, 2018

There were many who were totally sold for his act and loved every bit of it.  One wrote, “They’d be stupid not to hire you. In fact, if you don’t get the role then I’ll be tempted to write my own superhero movie and cast you as the villain because I’m smart and I know a golden opportunity when I see one.”

While another said, “I think you’d play a great Joker. I think if you could feed off the emotion of everyone telling that you can’t do it, you could be the best Joker yet.” 

Now, all we have to see is what Philip thinks of this. Will Wiseau get this dream role? Let us know what you think of it.

Filmmaker Hansal Mehta always comes up with unconventional stories that never fail to surprise us. He is not just an impressive director but also has a knack for narrating a tale in a unique manner. Since he announced ‘Omerta’, we all have been wondering how would he present the complex story of a terrorist on the big screen?

And finally the first poster of the much talked about film is out starring Rajkummar Rao, and we’ve got to say that he has stunned us. The duo of Rao and Hansal always bring out the best of their work and they are back again to break some new ground.

Omerta (c) Swiss Entertainment

The intense drama is based on the true story of the life of terrorist Ahmad Omar Saeed Shaikh, who was freed in exchange for passengers of a hijacked Indian Airlines plane in 1999. The first look already gives us a glimpse of the terrifying story.

Rao this time will be seen as an antagonist. The story is not an easy one to bring to life, after all, it’s a narration of a wanted terrorist. 

Omerta(c) Swiss Entertainment

The first poster shows Rao kneeling down and praying with his hands cupped with a skull cap on his head. It is a strong attempt to show the two sides of a person who kills without caring about any consequence, while also being able to pray and worship devotedly. Hard picture to think of isn’t it? But it has been executed perfectly. 

Knowing Hansal’s directing techniques, we know he is strongly trying to make a strong point. Sharing the poster, Rao took to his Twitter and wrote, “Here’s the official poster of #Omerta. Film releasing on 20th April. Trailer out in two days. @mehtahansal”

Here’s the official poster of #Omerta. Film releasing on 20th April. Trailer out in two days. @mehtahansal

— Rajkummar Rao (@RajkummarRao) March 12, 2018

One look at the poster and you are bound to get impressed by how versatile Rajkummar is as an actor. At one point he can play an underdog you root for, then instantly make you despise him as a spineless fiance, and now he is here to leave you terrified to your bones. His multifaceted avatar is sure to make his counterparts turn green with envy. 

#Omerta the story of an Antagonist. Trailer will be out in 2 days. Easily the toughest character I’ve played till date.

— Rajkummar Rao (@RajkummarRao) March 12, 2018

Talking about the film Hansal Mehta says, “Omertà exposes state-sponsored terrorism and how it manipulates young minds into believing a sordid interpretation of Jihad. Terror is all about power. Packed screenings at film festivals around the world were met with shocked silence and often anger. I am expecting similar reactions from the audience to this shocking tale.”

Sharing views about the film, director Anurag Kashyap said,”Omertà is not an easy film to pitch, to sell .. about the most unsympathetic man.. a very hard character to play on screen and a harder film to make .. put together by the most courageous duo of @mehtahansal and @RajkummarRao . Looking forward to see it on screen..”

— Anurag Kashyap (@anuragkashyap72) March 12, 2018

Shot in various real locations in India and London, the film openly talks about the country and state-sponsored terrorism and how dangerous it can be. Tracing through the terror attacks that shook the world like the 9/11 attack, 26/11 Mumbai terror strike and the beheading of American journalist Daniel Pearl, the movie gives you an insight on how an evil mind works. Albeit terrifying, we’ve got to admit that the story does sound pretty engaging.

Omerta(c) Swiss Entertainment

The film was already premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, Busan International Film Festival, and Mumbai Film Festival, and has received fabulous reviews. 

The movie is all set to release on April 20th, 2018.
