Kangana Ranaut’s nepotism remark had hit a raw nerve among the who’s who of Bollywood. It’s an open secret in the film industry that hasn’t exactly been too kind to outsiders. Yet, the blue blood of Bollywood refused to let the remark go down with grace. What followed was outright denial, then petty ridicule (in the form of punny jokes at the IIFA awards) and later an open letter justifying nepotism as natural selection.

Just when we thought there was no one in the industry who would own up to it and call a spade a spade, actor Emraan Hashmi spoke up. The actor who is the nephew of Mahesh Bhatt, has always been forthright and honest in an industry where diplomacy is taken as a morning pill. We have always admired Emraan for his lack of pretence and his transparent interviews.

In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, the actor confessed that nepotism exists in the industry and was the reason why he could get his first break in Bollywood, thanks to his uncle Mahesh Bhatt. “Yes, nepotism exists in our industry, and I got a break because of it. If my uncle, who is a producer and director hadn’t been there, I wouldn’t have been an actor.”

The actor had no qualms in accepting that having godfathers in the industry makes it a lot easier to penetrate the cold hard fabric of the close-knit industry, “I wouldn’t push my seven-year-old son, Ayaan, now into Bollywood. But tomorrow, if he wants to become an actor, it will be a lot easier for him because his father is an actor and producer.” 

And, of course, there’s a downside to it too and Emraan is well aware of that. “The industry will try to box my son into an image that his father had and completely snatch away his individuality. They won’t let him start afresh, like an outsider.”

Finally, someone who had the guts to face the truth and say it out loud, without being self-defensive or dismissive, and without jumping to justifications about how hard work is necessary too. It takes a person who is confident in his own skin to own up to something like that. Emraan is an immensely talented actor and has given us some real powerful roles. Grounded and brutally honest, that’s the Emraan we look up to, just like most of his roles.

The teaser of the much-awaited film ‘Baadshaho’ is out and actor Ajay Devgn is back to sweep us off our feet, after winning our hearts earlier with his stellar performance in ‘Shivaay’. Set during the 1975 emergency, this movie revolves around ‘6 badasses’ who take advantage of this situation to pull off a heist worth millions in gold and change their lives forever. For those who failed to notice (although, we wonder if there is anyone who missed it), the movie also features Sunny Leone and sparks will surely fly once you watch her share the screen with Emraan Hashmi.

Ajay Devgn’s rugged look and spot on Haryanvi accent is an intriguing takeaway from this teaser and has compelled us to look forward to its release. He will be joined by Ileana D’Cruz, Emraan Hashmi, Vidyut Jamwal, Sanjay Mishra and Esha Gupta, and together they will redefine badassery for this entire generation, by looting gold from under the nose of the army.

Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi, who earlier worked together in ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai’, will play gangsters in this movie too, and in all honesty, we are dying to see the two recreate that magic. Esha Gupta and Ileana D’Cruz look stunning and it’s a pleasant surprise to see them in a bold avatar. Vidyut Jamwal on the other hand, looked every bit the fearsome individual he is. If you feel that these aren’t reasons enough for you to head to the movie theatre, the fact that Sanjay Mishra is a part of this brilliant star cast will definitely compel you to go. This movie is the directorial venture of Milan Luthria and is slated to release on September 1st. Check out the teaser below.

Emraan Hashmi has been known for his romantic songs in films. The actor has a fantastic track record for the hit love songs in his career and keeping his image in mind, filmmaker and composer Vishal Bhardwaj has agreed to choreograph a song for Emraan in his forthcoming production Ek Thi Daayan. The film is being directed by debutant Kannan Iyer.

Vishal Bhardwaj is a kind of producer who never interferes with his directors however new they are. But in the case of Ek Thi Daayan which is a super-natural thriller, the filmmaker-composer is all set to debut as a choreographer for a sensuous song in the film with Emraan Hashmi and Huma Qureshi. The song composed by Bhardwaj himself has lyrics by Gulzar.

Debutant director Kannan Iyer seems only too happy to step aside for his producer-composer, “This is one of Vishal Bhardwaj’s most sensuous compositions ever. And being as involved as he is with his music, he wanted to choreograph the song himself. After all, he understands the nuances of this song better than anyone else.”

Vishal Bhardwaj is currently busy wrapping up his Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola however he has promised to wield the mega phone for the song in Ek Thi Daayan for the next couple of days. As for Emraan, this would be his next film after two back to back super hits Raaz 3 and Jannat 2. “Emraan is happy with the decision; he does not want to let go of the momentum,” says a source close to the unit.

Ek Thi Daayan co-produced by Balaji and Vishal Bhardwaj Productions is slated for April 18 release.

With the kind of news that the upcoming film Ek Thi Daayan has been making, courtesy, the constant inflow of four legged visitors and likes, one really wonders what will happen to the film when it actually releases!

The latest update is that a pack of monkeys recently visited the sets of the film and needless to say that, they created a lot of ruckus on the sets delaying the shoot for some time. Since it’s a sync sound film, the shoot had to be stalled until all noise ceased. Speaking about the incident, Tanuj Garg, (CEO-Balaji Motion Pictures) said that, “We had to call in extra security to control them and get them out. But in a few minutes they came back again. There was some delay but we couldn’t help the situation.”

News has it that the monkeys were cleared out of the sets but they came back again after some time. The film is being co-produced by Vishal Bhardwaj and Ekta Kapoor, and stars Emraan Hashmi, Konkona Sen Sharma and Kalki Koechlin in the lead roles.
