The wait to see ‘Baahubali’ sensation Prabhas on the big screen again just got longer. Buzz is that his next film, ‘Saaho’, will not hit the marquee this year. The makers of the trilingual (Telugu, Tamil, Hindi) are said to be eyeing January 2019, around Makar Sankranti. They feel it will prove to be auspicious for them. The unit is slated to shoot for a chase sequence in Dubai soon. Also, director Sujeeth is known to be a taskmaster and often reshoots until he is satisfied. Shraddha Kapoor, who also features in the thriller, may just have the horror comedy, Stree, with Rajkummar Rao releasing first.

In the last few months, rumoured couple Farhan Akhtar and Shraddha Kapoor were spotted together on several occasions. But if sources are to be believed, the Rock On 2 actors’ relationship seems to have hit a rough patch

In the last few months, rumoured couple Farhan Akhtar and Shraddha Kapoor were spotted together on several occasions. But if sources are to be believed, the Rock On 2 actors’ relationship seems to have hit a rough patch. Apparently, the problems have resulted in a delay of Kapoor’s next film, backed by Akhtar’s banner. Sources say that there’s no certainty if the movie will still star the Aashiqui 2 actor.

After “Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali?”, if there’s anything that broke the internet with equal intensity, it’s “Happy Birthday Prabhas” or “#HBDDarlingPrabhas”. Fans have been flooding the social media with wishes and prayers for the actor, who turned 38 today. And as for Prabhas, who is at the center-stage of this discussion, he is surely on cloud nine as the first look of his upcoming film ‘Saaho’ also released today.

Following the footsteps of ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ and hoping to achieve similar success, the makers of this movie chose his birthday to release the first look and we are not complaining at all. Prabhas looks amazing in this mysterious and intriguing avatar.   

The moment you see the big man in black dressed in a long coat with a scarf covering half his face, walking down the misty road against the backdrop of skyscrapers; you know that you wouldn’t want to miss this. Is it just me or is there anyone else who feels that Prabhas looks like a desi ‘James Bond’ or a doppelganger of Sherlock Homes. After giving an exceptional performance in ‘Baahubali’, Prabhas is all set to stun us all with his never seen before avatar in this action thriller that is being shot in both Hindi and Telugu.

The movie also stars Shraddha Kapoor and Neil Nitin Mukesh. Neil will play Prabhas’ archenemy in the movie. The teaser that was released earlier this year had already created ripples on social media, and if you by any chance missed that out, you can watch it here. 

On one hand where Prabhas’ fans are going gaga over him, Ryan Gosling’s fans don’t seem to be too impressed and are criticizing his avatar which looks heavily copied or ‘inspired’ from that of ‘Blade Runner 2049’.

Yes, the same foggy road with both men walking in a black outfit; this uncanny resemblance is hard to miss. And we guess we weren’t the first ones to notice this ‘inspired’ look, fans were quick to notice the similarity between the action flick and the sci-fi movie.

So folks which side are you at – Team Prabhas or Team Ryan Gosling?

The movie also stars Jackie Shroff, Chunky Pandey and Mandira Bedi in important roles. This movie is special for various reasons and one of them is the fact that this one will be Prabhas’ first films after long years of working for SS Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali’, during which he did not work on any other project. ‘Saaho’ is an action thriller directed by Telugu filmmaker Sujeeth Reddy and is scheduled for a 2018 release.  

‘Baahubali’ director SS Rajamouli too took to Twitter to praise the look.

Shraddha Kapoor also took to Twitter to wish Prabhas on his birthday.

While the first look is doing rounds on the social media, people too can’t stop raving about the birthday boy and the much needed badassery he brought with him to the film.

As Shraddha Kapoor’s upcoming crime-biopic ‘Haseena Parkar’ gears up for release, Apoorva Lakhia reveals some behind the scenes incidents that took place on the sets of the film. While Shraddha plays the titular role of ‘Haseena’, her real life brother brother Siddhanth Kapoor will play her reel-life brother, Dawood Ibrahim. Since, the movie is an intense thriller, the mood on the sets of the film was intense as well. Even if there was no shooting, the people on the sets used to be serious. Apoorva realised the people needed to have a good-time as well and hence decided to organise a cricket match for the cast and crew.

Siddhant Kapoor being a good cricketer decided to play, even Shraddha was not a part of this match. However, she indirectly ended up becoming a part of it. When Siddhanth hit the ball, it unfortunately hit the car window of Shraddha’s favourite ca and smashed it. Her mercedes benz!Everyone thought that Shraddha would be angry, but she did not mind it all and director Apoorva Lakhia seems to think it is because her car was insured. 

‘Haseena Parkar’ will hit the screens on September 22.

Shraddha Kapoor and Kiara AdvaniShraddha Kapoor and Kiara Advani

Shraddha Kapoor and Kiara Advani are in Hyderabad shooting for their Telugu films, Saaho and Bharat Ane Nenu, respectively.

The two have been put up at the same five-star hotel. While Shraddha’s co-star is Prabhas, Kiara has been paired with Mahesh Babu. Buzz from the set of Saaho is that Prabhas treated his leading lady and the unit to local delicacies. He had ordered at least 18 food items and Shraddha, a foodie, couldn’t stop herself from tucking in.

There’s something about the city of the Charminar and its cuisine. From the mirchi ka salan to the khatti dal and the Hyderabadi biryani to the qubani ka meetha, the unit could not stop raving. Food is also a big part of the Bharat Ane Nenu unit. When time permits, Kiara prefers to hop over to the local joints to savour the delicacies.

The latest buzzword in the Indian film industry is nepotism. Nepotism refers to the practise of appointing relatives and friends in one’s organisations to positions for which outsiders might be better qualified. While you must be thinking that this term should have no connection to Bollywood, well, you are highly mistaken.

When Kangana Ranaut accused Karan Johar of promoting nepotism on his show, ‘Koffee With Karan’, it sparked off a debate in the film industry and there were divided opinions on it. While some people sided with Kangana, a huge number of them also sided with Karan Johar when he accused Kangana of playing the victim card.

While there are many examples of ordinary people who have become stars on their own accord (read: Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Anushka Sharma, Priyanka Chopra); there are an equally large number of people who had the right backing at the right time and they became stars.

Here we have for you just a few examples which go on to prove that Bollywood is in fact, a huge flag-bearer of nepotism. 

1. Arjun Kapoor

Arjun Kapoor© Instagram

Son of famous film producer, Boney Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor was an overweight adult when he was first spotted by YRF. He was then asked to lose weight if he wanted to start a career in films. And that is what he did. He went on to lose all his weight and become incredibly fit before he started shooting his debut film, ‘Ishaqzaade’. While this film did well and was praised by fans and critics alike, his subsequent films did not do so well. But, he is still seen as the face of many films and his filmography boasts of having worked with some of the biggest names in the film industry.

2. Alia Bhatt

Alia Bhatt© Instagram

Daughter of producer Mahesh Bhatt and actor Soni Razdan, Alia Bhatt too, was an overweight adult. She was launched by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions in their film, ‘Student Of The Year’, along with Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan. While she has managed to make a mark with her acting skills, the fact still exists that she was given a chance to debut with a huge banner film because of nepotism. All the three, Alia, Varun, and Sidharth are still considered to be Karan’s “children” who he has mentored and are very dear to him. Alia Bhatt is perhaps the only actor who has proven her mettle by doing a wide niche of films like ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘Highway’, and ‘Dear Zindagi’. 

3. Athiya Shetty

Athiya Shetty© Instagram

She is the daughter of famous actor, Suniel Shetty and she made her debut with the Nikhil Advani directed ‘Hero’ in 2015 along with Sooraj Pancholi. The film was produced by Salman Khan and Subhash Ghai. The film flopped miserably, but their careers didn’t as they were launched by Salman Khan and he has made sure to give them the right kind of exposure this time. 

4. Emraan Hashmi

Emraan Hashmi© Instagram

Mahesh Bhatt is his uncle and Emraan Hashmi was one of the few actors who came out and agreed to the fact that nepotism does exist in Bollywood. He, in an interview said, “Yes, nepotism exists in our industry, and I got a break because of it. If my uncle [Mahesh Bhatt], who is a producer and director hadn’t been there, I wouldn’t have been an actor.” His initial films earned him the tag of a ‘serial kisser’ and till today, he hasn’t shied away from that image. 

5. Shraddha Kapoor

Shraddha Kapoor© Instagram

She is the daughter of the famous comic-villain Shakti Kapoor; and Shraddha Kapoor got a break in movies because of this tag. While she is extremely beautiful, her acting skills are next to zero. Almost all her films have failed miserably, but that hasn’t stopped her from getting film projects. She was last seen in Mohit Suri’s ‘Half Girlfriend’, which was based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel of the same name and needless to say, the film fared poorly in the box office. While her debut film, ‘Aashiqui 2′ did do decent business at the box office, all her other films have flopped.

6. Sonakshi Sinha

Daughter of Shotgun aka Shatrughan Sinha and Poonam Sinha, Sonakshi Sinha made her debut opposite Salman Khan in the hit film franchise, ‘Dabangg’. While that film did huge business because of the presence of Salman Khan, Sonakshi’s career was boosted because of that. But, just like with other star kids, she has failed to leave an impression in Bollywood. Her films have tanked at the box office and only a few of her films like ‘Lootera’ and the ‘Dabangg’ series have managed to shine. She is landing a ton of lead roles in many movies and her career seems to be flourishing.

7. Sonam Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor© Instagram

Daughter of jhakkaas actors, Anil and Sunita Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor too was an overweight adult. When she lost weight, she was offered Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Saawariya’ alongside another debutant in Ranbir Kapoor. The film tanked miserably at the box office, but that didn’t stop Sonam Kapoor from getting lead roles in various films. Almost all her films have failed to make their mark at the box office, barring her latest release, ‘Neerja’, which was directed by Ram Madhvani. She was even publically called out by one of her co-stars, Abhay Deol for the movie ‘Aisha’ where he said that the film had more to do with clothes than acting. 

8. Tiger Shroff

Tiger Shroff© Instagram

He is the son of Jackie Shroff and is known more for his controversial sexist statements rather than for his acting. When he debuted with the film, ‘Heropanti’ alongside actor Kriti Sanon, it failed to leave an impression on the audience. While Kriti had a tough time getting good roles after that, Tiger’s career seems to have taken off with him getting lead roles in multiple movies. It’s another story that those films do not do well at the box office. 

9. Varun Dhawan

Varun Dhawan© Instagram

He is the son of famous producer David Dhawan and was launched in Bollywood through Karan Johar’s ‘Student Of The Year’. He has managed to prove his acting capabilities and is a huge star with quite a female fan following. A few of his films have done well, but he is still a product of nepotism, and this fact cannot be denied by anyone.

Still think nepotism doesn’t exist in Bollywood? Well, it’s time to re-think that idea!
