Salman Khan will soon start shooting for Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat, co-produced by brother-in-law Atul Agnihotri. It’s also believed that he will juggle the schedule with Dabangg 3, directed by brother Arbaaz Khan. While producer Boney Kapoor’s Wanted 2 and No Entry Mein Entry were also in the pipeline, sources suggest that the star has put them on the back burner. He is likely to start work on brother Sohail Khan’s next directorial venture, Sher Khan, instead.

A source tells mid-day, “Writer Kona Venkat, who scripted Salman’s No Entry (2005) and Ready (2011), has finished writing Sher Khan’s script. It’s an out-and-out commercial drama. As soon as Salman Khan returns from the US and Canada leg of the Da-Bangg Tour in July, he will start shooting for Bharat, followed by Dabangg 3. Sohail is currently busy with the pre-production work of Sher Khan. Once he is done finalising the cast, Salman will start shooting for it.”

Khan, who is flooded with offers, says Boney Kapoor’s films are not on his calendar yet. “There is no Wanted or No Entry sequel happening,” he says, adding, “I’m doing Bharat, Dabangg 3 and Sher Khan. I want to do something that I instantly like. I take up films only if they excite me immediately. If something is narrated to me and I am like, ‘I will tell you tomorrow’ or ‘I need some time to think’, it’s never happening.”

When contacted, Kapoor sounded annoyed. He said, “You have already heard it from Salman, so you should go with his word. I don’t want to comment on this further.” Meanwhile, talking about his other projects, Khan says, “I am waiting for the Kick 2 script to be finalised. Then there is a dance film with Remo D’Souza and one with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. He will narrate the script to me soon.”

This EID is no less than a double bonanza for both Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan fans. Today, the makers of ‘Zero’ have released the teaser of Shah Rukh’s much-awaited film ‘Zero’.

Shah Rukh Khan, who plays a midget in Aanand L Rai’s Zero, walks into an arena, fans cheering from the gallery, as what sounds like Jaaved Jaaferi, in the manner of a commentator, gives a colourful introduction–the “dil, jigar and jaan” of the nation, the full moon of Eid. Wearing a jeans, a black leather jacket, a white T-shirt with Katrina Kaif emblazoned on it, and a gamchha wrapped around his neck, he is mighty pleased with the adulation. Only it’s not SRK they are cheering for, but Salman Khan, whose shadow rising amid the special effects smoke makes an entry even before he does.

As the two Khans display brotherly love, dancing to a flavourful Sukhwinder Singh song, hugging, and kissing and conveying Eid greetings to the viewers, all we get to know is that SRK plays Bauua Singh, and he has the reputation of turning careers and changing lives of whoever he backs.

The cute antics by the two Khans is already winning many hearts! It is all over the internet and people are calling it the best Eid gift ever. Here’s how Twitterati are going gaga over the power-packed entertaining teaser.

Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt relationship has literally become the talk of town. First the Brahmastra actors made an appearance as a couple at Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s wedding reception and set tongues wagging. The Sanju hero confirmed his relationship in an interview to GQ and got fans of the two stars excited. And hearing Ranbir Kapoor gush about Alia Bhatt only makes us wonder if he has finally found his Ms Perfect. Remember after his split with Katrina Kaif in 2016, RK Jr had said, “I want to get married, I want to have children and I will do it in the right way. I will meet a likeminded person and fall madly, truly and deeply in love and just take it from there.”

In a recent interview with senior journalist Rajeev Masand, Ranbir Kapoor opened up yet again about his ladylove. Ranbir was all praises for the actress. In fact, he talked about being in love and said, “I think every human being does extraordinary things only when they’re in love. I believe that love is something, which is a privilege. And to be in a happy, beautiful, positive space… a relationship could be with a boy girl guy friend your mother father anybody. When there’s some genuine love it’s really beautiful.”

Ranbir when probed about his comment on Alia’s work added, “It’s only positive and more so because we are working in a film together and I really admire her as an actor. To see her have so much of colour, so much of spontaneity, so much of hardwork, so much of discipline (extremely disciplined) is quite rare. It’s amazing. It’s been 10 years for me in this industry, little lethargy, a little chalta hai type attitude comes in. So it’s rejuvenating for me as an actor to be with Alia.”

There was also one question that Rajeev posed to dog love Ranbir, about his girlfriend who is obsessed with cats to which an amused Kapoor Jr said, “I’m not only a dog person, I’m an animal lover and she’s an animal person too. Yeah, we like animals.”

While Ranbir has opened up about his relationship with Alia, the actress has sworn never ever to talk about her personal affairs in the media. So, we will either have to wait for Alia to share her thoughts on boyfriend or may be just do without it for now.

Before Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor was in a relationship with Pakistani actress Mahira Khan. His affairs with Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone were most talked about. Alia Bhatt too was linked to Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor and was also allegedly involved with Sidharth Malhotra before she started dating Ranbir.

Kareena Kapoor Khan is determined to give as much attention to her 1-year old son Taimur as possible. Hence after Veere Di Wedding for which she received outstanding notices, Kareena is pulling away voluntarily from any immediate assignments to focus on her real-life role of a mother.

For this reason, Kareena has said no to a number of offers that have come her way in recent times. The most recent no that Kareena had to say was to Ashutosh Gowariker who wanted to remake the Marathi hit Apla Manus with Kareena in the lead.

Says a source close to Kareena, “Bebo (Kareena) is very clear in her priorities. Her son Taimur comes first. He needs her at the moment. And Kareena will only do one film at the most per year until Taimur’s dependency on his mother lessens.”

Even while we rejoice over the empowerment of female actors in films like Hichki, Veere Di Wedding and Raazi there comes the dismaying news that the role of the female actor in Shah Rukh Khan starrer Salute, the proposed bio-pic on astronaut Rakesh Sharma, is being pruned down as no major actress is willing to play the part the astronaut’s wife.

For those who came in late, this Rakesh Sharma bio-pic was to star Aamir Khan who opted out. Now Shah Rukh Khan plays the lead in Salute. Apparently, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor Khan were approached to play Mrs Sharma, but they both felt they would be swamped out in script by the overpowering male protagonist.

The latest on Salute is that the makers have chosen to cut down the leading lady’s part and offer it to a secondary or a new actress. The logic being applied is, why invest so much time energy and money in an A-list heroine when the focus is on Shah Rukh Khan playing Rakesh Sharma?

Gold, even though was rumoured to have deviated from its release date, seem to be on schedule. The film has retained its release date, August 15, marking the occasion of India’s Independence Day. Well, owing to the patriotic theme of the film, it is an apt date chosen by the makers for the release of the Akshay Kumar, Mouni Roy starrer.

Readers may be aware that Gold is a sports drama revolving around the real life incident of India’s first hockey win post-Independence. Not surprisingly, there is an emotional value attached to the film and it is not special only to the makers but also every Indian. Explaining the reason behind it, Reema Kagti stated in reports about how India had won a gold medal even in the past. The director of Gold revealed that India had won a gold medal way back in 1936 during the Berlin Olympics. However, the then India was under the British Rule.

But, the win of 1948 in London was after India became an independent nation. Speaking one of those special moments from her film in recent reports, Reema Kagti reminisced about a sequence where Akshay Kumar pulls out the Indian National Flag in the locker room to boost the spirits of his teammates. Apparently, the flag was then banned in Germany and yet the moment is iconic because it inspired the players as they saluted it.

The emotions of patriotism, according to Reema, is one of the driving forces in Gold. The film also will have both the iconic matches as a part of the film – the 1936 and the 1948 matches. Reema maintained that even though the characters in the film are not completely based on real life individuals, they have been inspired by the memorable ones. Like, the filmmaker mentioned that the role of Akshay Kumar is partly inspired by the assistant manager of the Indian hockey squad during the 1936 Berlin Olympics. He had actually risen up the rank by the time India won its first match in 1948 in London.

On the other hand, elaborating on the prep for Gold, Reema Kagti maintained that she wanted a professional for her and the cast to understand the game. So she got Michael Nobbs on board, who has not only played in the 1948 Olympics, but has also coached the Indian hockey team for two years since 2011. She further added that her team too underwent prep beyond just learning the game. They had to understand the sport when it was played in a different era, that is the 40s and the rules, even the sticks used then were different.
