Neil Nitin Mukesh and Karishma Kotak clicked on the set of Firrkee in London. Ankush Bhatt’s film which also stars Karan Singh Grover and Sandeepa Dhar, recently added Kotak to the cast. The thriller has a long schedule lined up in England. It was also celebration time for Mukesh, who completes a decade in Bollywood.

Reprising and recreating of old chartbusters is the latest trend in B-town. From ‘Kala Chashma’ to ‘Tamma Tamma’, many 90s hit tracks have been rehashed lately but not every experiment is successful.

Remember those famous lyrics, “Neend churayi meri kisne o sanam….Tu ne”? Well, every kid born in the 90s has grooved to ‘Neend Churai Meri’ from the cult film ‘Ishq’.

Anu Malik’s music, Kumar Sanu, and Udit Narayan’s voice were all that was needed to create a Bollywood hit number during those days. The song not only ruled the music charts for weeks but also become everyone’s favourite song. 

And finally, Rohit Shetty has released the reprised version of 90’s hit song in his upcoming flick ‘Golmaal Again’. This is the first time that the same actor is seen in the recreated version of his own song. 20 years ago, this song debuted in the Ajay Devgn, Kajol, Aamir Khan and Juhi Chawla starrer ‘Ishq’ and now the same track has been reprised in ‘Golmaal Again’ as ‘Maine Tujko Dekha’. Though, after listening to the new track we wish what happened 20 years ago was left untouched.

Sadly, Rohit and Ajay had a different plan. What Anu Malik created once, has now been crushed by the same hands. Nor do you get Kajol’s and Ajay’s peppy chemistry and neither does the song leaves a real impact. This new track is an utter disappointment and makes you wonder why the track was even remade in the first place. 

The song focuses on Parineeti Chopra as Ajay tries to woo her, and I so wish I could say this song didn’t destroy those memories, but I just can’t. Growing up listening to this epic song is one thing that will stay with many kids who were born in 90’s. Even today, when the song comes on, one can’t refrain from grooving to its beats and sing along, exhausting our vocal cords. That was the magic of that cult song!

There is nothing new that this song offers. You are presented with Ajay’s trademark steps and a train to sequence from ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’. It seems like producers these days are hell-bent on ruining every old song. 

Ajay and Rohit, congratulations on royally messing up yet another 90’s song.

Every time Rajkummar Rao appears on-screen, he totally leaves us stunned with his sheer talent. While most actors stick to their genre, Rajkummar is known for donning different characters and roles every single time. He not only portrays every part with perfection but entertains us thoroughly.

From a fully toned body to losing weight for his film ‘Trapped’ to gaining those extra pounds and going bald for ‘Bose’, he does everything possible to get nail the look of the character he is playing.  

#AnActorsLife #Building a character. From Behen Hogi Teri to Trapped to currently shooting for #Bose. Nothing gives me more high than preparing and living a character.

A post shared by Raj Kummar Rao (@rajkummar_rao) on Jul 4, 2017 at 10:42pm PDT

Rajkummar is busy creating his own niche and taking the industry by storm. Just recently, he moved everyone with his remarkable performance in ‘Newton’. The film is creating a ton of buzz in tinsel town and garnering a lot of praise from viewers all over India. ‘Netwon’ is also India’s official entry for the Oscars.

And amid all this, his next project has already become the talk of the town. Wondering why? Well, the National Award winning actor is all set to go nude for his next film ‘Omerta’, directed by Hansal Mehta. Known for his method acting, the actor is going all in for his next role once again.

Produced by Swiss Entertainment & Karma Features, #Omerta has @RajkummarRao playing yet another real life character.

This is said to be one of the boldest roles that Rajkummar will be playing. He will be seen stepping into the shoes of terrorist, Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh.

 “I’m comfortable with my body and if a scene genuinely demands nudity, I don’t mind it. As long as it’s for the scene and not to titillate the audience, I am okay. Be it LSD, Shahid or now Omerta, these are all very powerful scenes in extremely relevant contexts,” Raj told Deccan Chronicle.

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?

When you think of Game of Thrones, the first thing that comes to mind is bloodshed, sex, dragons, betrayals, love, war, and revenge. And who can forget the incestuous drama, white walkers, the three eyed raven, ghost, the list goes on and on.

But coming back to the main point, there is no other show that gives you a combination of all these factors merged in one. Hence it doesn’t surprise us that it is one of the most watched shows around the globe.


So when the demand is that huge, it is obvious that the expenditure can’t be small as well. The kind of cash the GOT cast makes per episode already made our eyes pop. And as if that wasn’t enough,  latest Variety reports state that HBO is all in, shelling out an obscene amount of cash per episode. HBO is set to spend $15 million per episode! Yep you read that right.

The article also states that usually the budget for high-end TV shows is $7-$10 million and GOT spent around $10 million per episode in the last season. So $15 million is pretty much the cost for an episode of the upcoming season that will air in 2019.

GOT(c) HBO/ Giphy

Though this shouldn’t surprise anybody because if you have seen Netflix’s original ‘The Crown’ and ‘The Get Down’, they had the same budget per episode.

Now, for people who still think the amount is too much to even think of, let us also tell you that every episode of season 8 will almost have a run time of a movie, varying from 80-90 minutes. So that pretty much justifies the expense and what one can expect from the storyline.


As long as we have dragons, wolves and the big war, we are fine with everything! We can’t wait for winter to get to Westeros.

President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday condoled the death of veteran theatre and film personality Tom Alter, who passed away in Mumbai after losing his battle with skin cancer.

“Sad to hear of demise of veteran actor Tom Alter. He will be remembered by film lovers. Condolences to his family,” Kovind tweeted. “The PM (Prime Minister) expressed grief on the demise of Tom Alter and recalled his contribution to the film world and theatre. He extended condolences to the family and admirers,” the Prime Minister’s Office tweeted.

Alter was battling stage four skin cancer at a Mumbai hospital, where he was admitted earlier in September. He returned home on Thursday and breathed his last on Friday night. He was 67. In 2008, Alter was honoured with the Padma Shri, India’s fourth highest civilian honour.
