Sanjay_amitabhBollywood actor Sanjay Dutt’s wife Manyata Dutt, named among those in the ‘Paradise Papers’ accused of parking their wealth in tax havens abroad, says all her financial dealings are above board.

Dilnashin figures among the 714 Indian links named in the ‘Paradise Papers’, said the Indian Express in a banner story done as part of a global probe carried out by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).

Her spokesperson said in a statement: “As per the requirements of provisions of Income Tax Act, 1961, all the properties, company or body corporate or shares in any company are declared in the balance sheet.”

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has been named as part of the leaks, regarding shareholding in a Bermuda company acquired before the 2004 Liberalised Remittance Scheme kicked in.

A day before the big story broke, Amitabh had penned his thoughts on being named in the Bofors scandal and the earlier Panama Papers leaks.

“Tomorrow there could be more… And the process of our cooperation shall continue,” he wrote in a blog post on Sunday.

On the Panama Papers of last year, he wrote: “We were asked for reactions, for responses, for justification or not, for replies to their investigative queries… Two instant replies were given out by us… Of denial and misuse of name. They were printed… but the questions continued.

“The fullest cooperation has been extended at all hours as dutiful citizens.. And even after, if there is any more query that needs to be addressed, we shall comply.”

Trishala Dutt harbours acting aspirations, but dad Sanjay Dutt is against it. The star daughter, who is based in New York, recently shared a snapshot on Instagram and wrote, “Cardio seven days a week.”

A social media celebrity in her own right, Trishala’s sexy snapshot in a sheer top went viral. Does she still want to give Bollywood a shot? If only Papa Dukes (as she fondly calls Dutt) would relent.

ranbir_sanjayAce director Rajkumar Hirani who is helming the untitled biopic on Sanjay Dutt has kept everything about the film under wraps.

Recently, some images of Ranbir Kapoor in his character of Sanjay Dutt were leaked from the sets which raised everyone’s eyebrows.

The leaked looks of Ranbir Kapoor from the film have created immense curiosity and anticipation amongst Ranbir Kapoor’s and Sanjay Dutt’s fans.

The excitement level of the fans is so much that they have resorted to creating their version of posters for the much-awaited film. Ranbir Kapoor will be seen in a totally different avatar in the film where he will be playing the reellife, Sanjay Dutt.

The actor has undergone a tremendous transformation for his role in the film. The talented actor has learnedthe nuances and accent of Sanjay Dutt very well apart from the physical transformation Ranbir underwent for the role.

Ranbir had adopted Dutt’s unique strut for the film by watching almost 200 hours of footage, transformed himself physically and also sported a wig to properly resemble the actor’s iconic 90’s mane.

Ranbir’s transformation into the character of Sanjay Dutt has proved one thing that the actor has done justice to the role.

Rajkumar Hirani his making one of the most ambitious projects of his film career- the Sanjay Dutt biopic. Ranbir Kapoor has stuck out his neck for portraying Sanjay Dutt on the big screen and trying to humanise him. Ranbir has undergone several physical transformations as well. Even Sonam Kapoor shot for an extensive portion in New York for the film. She is touted to play the role of Madhuri Dixit, who had a torrid affair with Sanjay Dutt in the 90s. However, one person is clearly a bit salty about her role and portrayal. That happens to be Maanayata Dutt, third wife of Sanjay Dutt.

According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, we hear that Hirani has not intimated her about the screentime her character will get, or what role she will play in the film. A nervous Maanyata, we hear, has been calling all and sundry (including Ranbir Kapoor), trying to get more info on the movie. The part of Maanayata Dutt will be played by Dia Mirza and ironically she only has good things to say about her role. “I believe Maanayata is someone who has a strong sense of self. Ranbir has transformed himself into Sanjay totally but I don’t think others need to do the same. I have interacted with her over the years and I think she is the anchor in Sanjay’s life. But I have perceived Maanayata through the wonderful writing (by Abhijat and Raju) that’s been written about her.”

The Dutt biopic has a stellar star cast comprising of Manisha Koirala playing Nargis Dutt, Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt and Vicky Kaushal as a close aide of Sanjay. The film is set to release in 2018. Sanjay Dutt has led quite a controversial life right from being accused of holding illegal arms and ammunition in his home during 1993 Mumbai blasts to battling drug addiction and multiple marriages.

A Pali Hill birdie was rather amused after hearing about Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff teaming up for Siddharth Anand’s film. To jog your memory, after Sanjay Dutt walked free in February 2016, the actor had chosen Anand’s thriller for his comeback.

After beginnning preparations for the role, Dutt did a rethink when he read the final draft. He felt it was a mish-mash of several Hollywood flicks like ‘Captain Phillips’ (2013), ‘The Jackal’ (1997) and Under Siege’ (1992).

Not wanting his comeback to be labelled a rehash of Western films, Sanju Baba opted out of the project. The birdie hopes the producers (Yash Raj Films) have read the script. And more importantly, seen the aforementioned Hollywood flicks. Or is it an entirely new story that Anand has come up with?

Apart from winning accolades and awards, including a National Award for her performance in ‘Neerja’ and being part of some of the biggest films like ‘Padman’, ‘Veere Di Wedding’ and the Sanjay Dutt biopic, Sonam Kapoor continues to be celebrated as a fashion icon. The star was honoured with the ‘Fashion Icon of the Year’ award at the Vogue Women of the Year awards.

Sonam Kapoor’s style is all about taking fashion risks and justifying it with utmost perfection. The star has a fearless, inimitable sense of fashion that reflects her love for experimentation.

The way she presents India on International platforms like the prestigious Cannes Film Festival is commendable.

His vanity van is as elegant as he is. He is a tech savvy dude and his van is equipped with high-tech interiors.

Ekta Kapoor

It was a chase right out of a Bollywood film. A property, vital to the makers of Veerey Di Wedding, was ‘abducted’, with the demand of a ransom. Only, that the property in concern was the official Instagram account of the Kareena Kapoor and Sonam-starrer, and the ransom, a role in the film. On Friday, the cast and crew of the Ekta Kapoor production were in the midst of filming when they noticed something amiss with the film’s account on the photo-sharing platform.

The makers grew suspicious after they noticed that the profile image had been changed to a sketch of a monkey. Apart from featuring an emoji of the Pakistan flag, the updated description was amended to read: “I am paki papu bhai (sic).”

Speaking to mid-day on the condition of anonymity, a member of the film’s digital promotion team says, “We had noticed the development and others had also informed us about it. We immediately reported the hacking to the Instagram headquarters in Mumbai and retrieved [control of the account]. It was hacked for about 90 minutes, allegedly by a resident claiming to be Pakistani. He went live and spoke mainly in Arabic, announcing that he’d return the account if the producers gave him a role in the film.” The social-networking company sprung into action and retrieved the account, also tracing the hacker’s origin to the neighbouring country.

While social media handles of celebrities have been hacked in the past, the incident marks the first time a Bollywood film’s account has been compromised. Co-producer Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor remained unavailable for comment.

Hackers love Bollywood

>> In September 2016, Hrithik Roshan’s Facebook page had been hacked. An ‘enterprising individual’ went live on his feed for a few minutes.

>> He can split a bullet into two but can’t avert hackers. In August 2016, Rajinikanth fell prey to online theft when his Twitter account was hacked. His daughter, Aishwarya, took to her handle to inform fans of the development.

>> In August 2015, hackers cracked the code to acquire access to Amitabh Bachchan’s Twitter handle. Links to adult sites were apparently shared on his feed.
