This weekend saw the world divided into two parts – one was of football fans cheering for their favourite players in Russia, at the ongoing FIFA 2018 World Cup; and the other was Salman Khan fans cheering for him inside the theatres while watching ‘Race 3’.

If your friends cancelled your plan to stay at home, after cribbing about how bad ‘Race 3’ will be; chances are you might spot him at a movie theatre watching it. And chances are they are also one of the people who skyrocketed ‘Race 3’ into the Rs. 100 crore club. You read it right, folks! It has also become the second highest weekend opener of 2018 at the box office.

Honestly, ‘Race 3’ is not a movie; it’s actually a case study on how you can turn a script-less and logic-less movie into a commercial blockbuster success in literally 3 days. How else can one justify that despite all the negative reviews, hatred, cringe-worthy songs and dialogues, and ‘our business is our business’ memes; this movie has minted over Rs. 106 crore in its opening weekend?

And #Race3 scores a CENTURY… Crosses 💯 cr… Fourth Salman starrer to collect ₹ 100 cr mark in *3 days* [#BajrangiBhaijaan, #Sultan, #TigerZindaHai]… Fri 29.17 cr, Sat 38.14 cr, Sun 39.16 cr. Total: ₹ 106.47 cr. India biz.

Remo D’Souza and Salman took the help of Anil Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Saqib Salim and Daisy Shah to ruin the movie; but that did not stop Bhai fans from flocking the theatres to watch the movie. Now that’s what you a critic-proof movie! Reportedly, ‘Race 3’ is Salman’s fourth movie to cross Rs 100 crore in its opening weekend, after ‘Sultan’, ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’.

However, no matter how much you guys hate Salman Khan or his movie ‘Race 3’, you can’t come anywhere close to how much Google hates him (or the man handling the SEO). If the North Indian-South Indian masala goof-up or showing Narendra Modi as India’s first PM was not enough, then you have to see this to believe how Google can come up with savage errors. However, this time we don’t know if it was an error or Google’s reaction after watching ‘Race 3’.

If you type ‘Worst Bollywood Actor’ on Google, Salman Khan’s name pops up as the top search and we honestly don’t know how to react. Twitter, on the other hand, was quick to pounce on its ‘golden memes’ worthy fact and reacted to this at a speed faster than Usain Bolt’s.

Go to google and type worst bollywood actor. The answer will give you inner peace!!! 🙂🙂🙂🙂🙂

On days when Diljit Dosanjh is not busy taking the world by a storm with his impeccable vocals, he stirs one up with his equally brilliant acting skills. From ‘Patiala peg’ to ‘Udta Punjab’ and ‘Phillauri’, his transition has been as smooth as that drink. From singing, acting to showing off his classy style statement, Diljit Dosanjh has turned into an unstoppable and undefeatable one-man army.

And Diljit once again proved why he deserves to be called one of the finest actors in Bollywood right now, when the trailer of ‘Soorma’ was released. This year will mark the release of a lot of great biopics and ‘Soorma’ is one of them.

Sandeep Singh is a hockey legend in his own right and one of the greatest athletes of all time. Portraying a character that is a legend in real life is not easy at all, but after watching the trailer we were shocked by how effortlessly he pulled off the role. Well, this is not a day’s work, nor was it a child’s play for Diljit.

Dosanjh underwent rigorous training for ‘Soorma’ and pushed himself to the extremes to achieve a physique like the former captain Sandeep Singh, and trained under him to understand the technicalities of the sport and master it to some extent. The fact that Dosanjh looks like an athlete in the trailer proves how hard he’s worked to achieve the mannerisms.

Recently, the producers shared a video of his training. In fact, Dosanjh too shared the video on his social media calling this the toughest role he has ever played. He even thanked Sandeep Singh for mentoring him.

‘Soorma’ is based on the life of ‘Flicker Singh’ aka Sandeep Singh, former captain of the Indian hockey team, a penalty corner specialist and a badass drag-flicker, who made a miraculous comeback after a life-threatening accident that left him almost paralyzed. ‘Soorma’ also stars Angad Bedi and Taapsee Pannu and is slated to release on July 13, 2018.

No matter how many movies released this year, the first half was owned by Ranveer Singh for his exceptional portrayal of mad king Alauddin Khilji, in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Padmaavat’. And if the wedding rumours are anything to go by, then the second half of the year too will be pretty much owned by him. Although the movie received mixed reactions, Bollywood lovers stood unanimously in favour of this being Ranveer’s best performance so far.

But, after the release of the jaw-dropping trailer of ‘Sanju’, things changed and so did people’s interest. What was meant to be a movie that will take us through the life of Sanjay Dutt has now become a movie about “Who did it better: Sanjay Dutt or Ranbir Kapoor?” And for this, the entire credit goes to Ranbir Kapoor for looking so convincing. 

Now while the two actors are doing great in their own respective acting careers and possibly two of the best actors in Bollywood right now, they have never come together in any movie. Call it lack of an interesting script for them, their personal equations (in the past) or just the fact that the directors never thought of it; but there’s no denying that we all have been secretly wishing for the two to come together in a movie.

Ranbir kapoor wants to work with raveer Fox Star Studios

And we guess we are not the only ones wishing for it, Ranbir Kapoor too thinks on the similar lines. Reportedly, in a recent conversation with Rajeev Masand, the actor said that he is a big fan of Ranveer and wants to work with him in a movie that’s similar to ‘Karan Arjun’ or ‘Andaz Apna Apna’. He said, “To cast two actors who have their own sensibilities is very hard because both have to like the material, it can’t just be another project. But I really want to work with him also because I am a big fan of his work. I thought he was spectacular in Padmaavat and every other thing that he has done.”   

Ranbir wants to work with Ranveer SInghStar World

He also spoke about Ranveer’s acting prowess and his energy. “Every advertisement he does, he stands out, his energy stands out…his talent speaks so much. So, I want to do a film with him but it has to be the right film. It could be like a ‘Karan Arjun’ or a ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ or a ‘Deewar’, it could be any genre but it has to be something that both od us connect to and like,” he said.

To all the directors – Guys, are you listening? Now that even Ranbir wants to do a movie, can we please get one soon.

Amitabh Bachchan is someone who often gets trolled on the internet for leaving funny posts. Sometimes, he trolls people or corrects their mistakes with comments like “I messaged you on your birthday, but you didn’t reply” or like in Alia Bhatt’s case, “err…it is cues not ques.”

But that does not take away from the fact that Amitabh Bachchan is also the megastar of Bollywood, whose unparalleled acting skills and rich experience, commands the word ‘legendary’ to be added in front of his name. Recently, the actor with his philanthropic act, proved once again why he deserves our respect.

Amitabh Bachchan To Donate 1 Crore To Army Widows & FarmersInstagram

For some time now, reports have been doing rounds that Sr. Bachchan aka the Shahenshah of Bollywood will be donating Rs. 1 crore each to the families of Indian Army martyrs and to farmers to help them get rid of their debts. In fact, according to these reports, he has even set up a team to locate authentic organizations that ensure that the money reaches the right hands.  

While people were speculating whether to believe this news or not, he sort of confirmed it with this tweet. He wrote “Yes I can and I will…”

From ‘Beti Bachao Andolan’, ‘Polio Eradication Campaign’ to ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan’; Bachchan has always been associated with humanitarian issues. Currently, he is working on ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ and on ‘Brahmastra’ with Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Ayan Mukerji.

If you had to compare Ranveer Singh to a Hollywood actor, who will it be? I know most of you will be like, “Blah Admin! It’s Ryan Reynolds, of course! We’ve seen ‘Deadpool 2’.” Well, some might call him the Ryan Reynolds of Bollywood, for his wit and sense of humour; but you guys are wrong.

Ranveer Singhs Transformation For Simmba Has Got People Wishing For An ArrestInstagram

The only actor that I can think of, after looking at Ranveer Singh’s latest pictures is actor Christian Bale. People know Bale as the ultimate shape-shifter and we even did an investigation on the same. And Ranveer’s latest transformation has confirmed that it is only him who can come close to Bale’s shape-shifting abilities.

First he gained weight for ‘Padmaavat’ and then literally shrunk down into a thin guy for Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Gully Boy’.

Now, Ranveer has once again turned his beast mode on for Rohit Shetty’s ‘Simmba’ and the latest picture posted by his fitness instructor Lloyd Stevens, speaks volumes about how dedicated Ranveer is towards his character of Inspector Sangram ‘Simmba’ Bhalerao. After all, criminals won’t take you seriously if you don’t look like this.

Lloyd wrote, “Safe to say Inspector #Simmba is putting on some decent muscle mass.”

And with this we are also sure that Ranveer’s moustache or the number of cars blown up in the air won’t be the only talking point of the film.

Clearly, his fans are thrilled by this insane transformation and some are willing to even get arrested by him. Well, at least Rohit Shetty won’t have to search for jail inmates for his ‘Simmba’; he can pick and audition people from Ranveer’s 13 million fans only.

Since the past few weeks, the whole world has been talking incessantly about the Marvel Universe and how half the superheroes turned to dust at the snap of Thanos’ fingers and the Infinity Stones settled on them.

But, it’s time to move on and focus on a universe, which is scarier than any other world out there. We’re talking about ‘The Conjuring’ universe, which is back to scare the wits out of you with its fifth installment– ‘The Nun’.

While you were busy tagging your friends in the videos of ‘Chai pi lo’ Aunty, ‘The Conjuring 2’ directors released this eerie and unsettling trailer of ‘The Nun’, a spin-off that revolves around a nun who finds herself trapped in the midst of paranormal events as she investigates the death of a fellow nun. Given it has Taissa Farmiga in the movie, can we call it a scary crossover between ‘The Conjuring 2’ and ‘American Horror Story’?

The demonic nun from the creepy portrait, who also happens to be main antagonist in ‘The Conjuring 2’ is back. The same ghost who paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were after, has finally got her own standalone movie, but sadly the trailer did not impress me much.

The trailer takes us back in time to a Romanian convent; where a nun was found dead in a shady nook. ‘A priest with a haunted past’ and ‘a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows’ are sent to investigate the murder by the Vatican. Together they solve the murder mystery, travel through dingy dark paths and finally come face-to-face with the demonic nun.

Honestly, anyone who spots a ghost lurking around them will freak out and scream for help. But our protagonist here is so brave, that the first thing she says when she sees the ghost is “Hello!” How else will you break the ice if you don’t greet someone, right? But she realizes pretty soon that a greeting was not what that ghost nun was expecting from her.

For me, the element of fear was completely missing from this 1-minute 32-second long video, that had hyped up the horror genre for me, despite there being two demonic nuns this time, which at least the trailer hints at!

Directed by Corin Hardy and helmed by Gary Dauberman of ‘It’ fame, the movie will release on September 7 and stars Demian Bichir as Father Burke, Taissa Farmiga as Sister Irene, Charlotte Hope, Ingrid Bisu, and Bonnie Aarons.

No matter how entertaining or happening your weekend was, unless you did something embarrassing, no one will really care about it. That’s where being rich and famous comes into play.

It was someone’s friend’s wedding on Sunday, did you know? But, tap your neighbour’s door and ask if it was Nick Jonas’ cousin’s wedding on Saturday, and he will tell you details that even a certain Jonas brother probably didn’t know about. That’s what being a celebrity is all about, the whole world cares about you.

But in all honesty, we don’t care about Nick Jonas or the cousin whose wedding he was attending. The only reason we are obsessing over these pictures is Nick Jonas’ date Priyanka Chopra, her classy style statement and a ring which is compelling us to ask if she’s already engaged.

Rumours of them dating have been doing the rounds since last year, when they appeared together at the Met Gala. But things only heated up recently, when the two started leaving mushy comments on each other’s Instagram and were spotted together on various occasions, including the JFK airport and a private cruise trip.

Well like Indian parents say, “It’s not just two people who come together in a relationship, it’s their families too who bond with each other.” Looks like Priyanka Chopra took a cue from it and turned up at the wedding to mingle with Nick’s family.

We are curious about what exactly did Nick tell her that she had such kind of an expression? Let me guess, Nick to Priyanka “Shaadi me Gol Gappe aur Vada Pao ka stall bhi laga hai.” Or “Yeh mere London wale chachaji hai, jo shadi me naagin dance krenge.”

From them appearing at the wedding arm-in-arm to Priyanka enjoying the wedding and showing off her ring to Nick giving a stern look to the Paparazzi; if these photos are doing anything, they are making our excitement hit peak levels.

In case you missed it, I mentioned that Priyanka was showing off a ring. If this doesn’t raise your eyebrow, we wonder what can.

After all these pictures and evidence we have in hands, can we call them an official couple now?

I am not a fan of ‘Game of Thrones’ but I am still eagerly waiting for the winter to come. Why? Because Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone are expected to get married this November. Now, this is not a fangirl speaking. I am just excited to know about this Switzerland wedding, after all the hype that has been created around it. Also, to ensure that these wedding rumours don’t amount to nothing. And I am sure I am not the only one thinking this way.

Deepika Padukone Will Move Close To Ranveer Singh's Parents After The WeddingBhansali Productions

From Ranveer Singh doing a recce of the wedding venue in Switzerland to Deepika Padukone buying her wedding jewellery with her mom, we have heard all sorts of rumours around their wedding. And now, if the recent reports are anything to go by, we already know where the couple is going to live post their wedding.  

Reportedly, Ranveer has purchased two floors in the building where he lives with his family in Mumbai and all the major reconstruction is being supervised by the bride-to-be herself. Looks like the couple will be staying close to Ranveer’s parents. Is it going to be a fancy one like Virat-Anushka’s Rs 34 crore sea-facing love nest? We don’t know about that. But, given how quirky Ranveer Singh is in real life, I believe the interiors will be a sight to look at.   

Deepika Padukone Will Move Close To Ranveer Singh's Parents After The WeddingInstagram

As for their wedding, the couple might go the Virushka way – an intimate wedding followed by two grand receptions, one in Mumbai and one in Bengaluru.

Although their wedding venue and the wedding itself is not confirmed yet, the details are quite on point, even for the rumour-mills’ standards. And given how both Ranveer and Deepika haven’t denied any of these speculations yet, these rumours are only growing strong with each day. So we are quite excited about this one.

On the work front, after playing the goddess queen Padmavati, Deepika will now play India’s first female superhero in a movie. As for Ranveer, he has already wrapped up the shoot for ‘Gully Boy’ and is now busy with Rohit Shetty’s ‘Simmba’.

Who is the first man to walk on the moon? Who is Neil Armstrong? You will always find these questions in exams and the online GK quizzes we take. In fact, if aliens exist chances are they too might gossip about this man, who scripted history with his unimaginable achievement, on their respective planets. But, how many of us know about his personal life and what pushed him to do what he did?

Check Out The Trailer Of 'First Man' Starring Ryan Gosling As Neil ArmstrongUniversal Pictures

That’s where Damien Chazelle and Ryan Gosling come into the picture. The last time director Damien Chazelle and Ryan Gosling came together, the world got an Oscar-winning movie ‘La La Land’. Now the duo is working on ‘First Man’, a biopic chronicling the life of Neil Armstrong who was the first person to walk on the moon. The trailer of this biopic recently touched down on the internet and looks like the duo is aiming to pick another Oscar next year.

The trailer and direction is intense and strong, just like the name of the person it’s based on. The movie is based on Armstrong’s biography ‘First Man: The Life Of Neil A. Armstrong’ by James R. Hansen. The trailer begins with Gosling staring at a Saturn V rocket as it lifts off and focuses on his life between the years of 1961 and 1969. From there the trailer skyrockets towards the moon (quite literally). The movie also gives a glimpse at how Armstrong’s ambition affected his marriage and children, who are skeptical about his chances of survival.

If you couldn’t spot Jimmy Kimmel in the 2 minute 45 seconds trailer, trust me you’re not alone.    

‘First Man’ also stars Claire Foy as Janet Armstrong, Kyle Chandler, Patrick Fugit, Ciaran Hinds, Ethan Embry, Pablo Schreiber and Corey Stoll and is expected to release on October 12, 2018.

Shah Rukh Khan’s fans love their King Khan more than anything else in the world; there are no doubts about that. But, his trolls love him more than his fans, because they get most of the fodders for memes and jokes from SRK alone. Be it any controversy or a major event, even if it has got nothing to do with SRK directly, will become a topic of discussion and an opportunity to troll him.

Shah Rukh Khan Gets Trolled For Cousin Noor Jehan Contesting Pakistan ElectionsInstagram

This time around, trolls decided to attack him on social media, for a reason that reminds us of the experience of growing up with siblings. Imagine you and your cousin is playing in the backyard, your cousin breaks something, but your mother comes and scolds you instead. This happened with most of us. Similarly, Shah Rukh Khan was trolled on social media because his cousin is contesting elections in Pakistan.

Shah Rukh Khan Gets Trolled For Cousin Noor Jehan Contesting Pakistan ElectionsInstagram

Reportedly, Noor Jehan is Shah Rukh Khan’s paternal cousin, who will be contesting the upcoming general elections from PK-77 constituency in Peshawar. When people got to know about her relation with SRK, they decided to attack him and question his loyalty towards India. In fact, they dug out facts like him choosing Pakistani players for Kolkata Knight Riders and working with actress Mahira Khan in ‘Raees’, to back their statements.  

@iamsrk I heard that ur sister is contesting for elections in Pakistan? Is this true ?? You earn money here in India and ur sister wants to contest for power in enemy state Pakistan ? Why ? What’s the agenda ? #AskSRK
