The level of admiration for their favourite stars makes Bollywood fans go to any extent, sometime merely to catch a glimpse of the actor. Ranveer Singh, who has got a tremendous fan following shared one such horrific experiences, where he was filmed by a fan, while he was changing. While talking to News 18, Ranveer Singh narrated the entire incident and said, “I went for a swim to the club, came out and I was in the changing room… buck naked, and I am drying my hair in one of the stalls and I look there is a guy filming with his light on. I was like, ‘Light toh off kar leta, toh pakda nahi jata’ (At least, you could have switched off the phone light, you wouldn’t have got caught).”

When the host asked Ranveer Singh if there is his MMS floating around on the Internet, the actor further said, “I ran across the changing room, in my condition, and I have shouted ‘Aye!’ Because of the way I have shouted, he has panicked and forgotten to run away. Can you imagine naked me going, ‘Aye, Aye!’? I caught his arm and I grabbed the phone. Fortunately, I had that presence of mind. If that video came out… I had to destroy it. It goes to this extent almost every other day.”

On the professional front, Ranveer Singh is busy shooting for Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy and is already in the news for his venture – Simmba with Rohit Shetty and Karan Johar. Saif Ali Khan’s daughter, Sara Ali Khan has been finalised to cast opposite Ranveer in this south film remake. The energetic actor will also step into the shoes of cricketer Kapil Dev for his biopic, ’83 by Kabir Khan.

Mum about directorial duties, Pooja Bhatt says Sadak 2 with Sanjay Dutt, Alia Bhatt in the works

After months of speculations, it was revealed late last year that Mahesh Bhatt was indeed planning a sequel to Sadak (1991) with Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt reprising their roles. There was also talk about Alia Bhatt joining the duo. Now, we hear, the script has been finalised and the film will roll early next year in all likelihood.

A trade source says that while the makers were keen on shooting the sequel this year, it had to be pushed due to Alia’s chock-a-block date diary. The source also hints that though Dutt has loved the script, he hasn’t signed on the dotted line yet. “Sadak 2 has been written for Sanjay Dutt keeping his earlier character, Ravi, in mind. While Sanju is looking forward to working with Pooja and Bhatt saab again, his remuneration is still under consideration. Once that is finalised, they will announce the film.”

While buzz suggests that Pooja is all set to helm the sequel, the next few weeks will see the Bhatts taking a call on the matter. “Though Mohit Suri is in contention, Bhatt saab is keen that Pooja direct the film. It will be interesting to see her act in, and direct the movie as well.”

When mid-day reached out to Pooja Bhatt, she was tight-lipped about the possibility of directing Sadak 2: “I can’t say it’s true neither can I say it’s untrue. All I can say right now is that we roll in February, 2019, and it will be a start-to-finish schedule,” she said.

After unveiling the first poster from Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt’s upcoming Zoya Akhtar film, ‘Gully Boy‘, both the actors are bonding big time over fitness. Ranveer and Alia both took to their social media accounts to share a picture of the duo working out together. However, what is unusual is their mane. While, Ranveer, who has lifted dumbbells, has sported long hair with a headband, Alia was seen flaunting her pig-tails while striking a perfect yoga pose.

Ranveer shared the picture and termed Alia Bhatt as his gym partner. “Partner Goals #mondaymotivation @aliaa08 (sic).”

On the other hand, ‘Raazi’ actress captioned the picture as, “Yaaaaaas.. Monday motivation (sic).”

‘Gully Boy’ stars Ranveer Singh playing the rapper. Farhan Akhtar is penning dialogues for sister Zoya’s Gully Boy. This will be Ranveer’s second film with Zoya after Dil Dhadkne Do. The film is inspired by Mumbai rappers Naezy and Divine, who belonged to a Kurla slum before they shot to fame.

Earlier, Ranveer had even uploaded a video of himself rapping the title track of the film. However, he later deleted the video from his Instagram account. Ranveer has been prepping with Divine to learn the nuances of rapping. Divine earlier told mid-day that while work on the film had commenced during the filming of Padmavati, it has garnered pace only now. “Ranveer genuinely loves hip-hop [music]. Currently, we are listening to music and jamming together,” he says.

Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh are currently shooting for ‘Gully Boy’ with Zoya Akhtar. The two hot leading stars of Bollywood are known for their bold dressing choices and bolder roles.

Their chemistry was ardent in the advertisements they did together recently and fans instantly wanted them to sign up a project together.

The duo will finally be seen together for their next movie and the shooting has been going on as a complete hush-hush affair and their look was kept under wraps, because that’s the norm these days. Giving away the look of a character gives away the ethnicity of the storyline and makers now want to pique the interest of the viewers. However, the power of social media and the hawk eyes of fans are unmatched. The look has now been leaked and if there is one word to describe it, it’s ‘unrecognisable’.

The movie is being backed by Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment and revolves around the lives of street rappers residing in the Mumbai ‘chawls’. The movie is said to be inspired from the real life story of rappers Divine and Naezy. Ranveer has been undergoing training to learn the art of rapping as well.

Alia Bhatt, who is busy filming for Ranbir Kapoor’s Brahmastra and Ranveer Singh’s Gully Boy, might delay Mahesh Bhatt’s Sadak 2

Alia Bhatt has been roped in for the sequel of father Mahesh Bhatt’s 1991 directorial venture, Sadak. While the film was expected to hit screens in August, it looks unlikely, thanks to Alia’s packed schedule. The actor, who recently wrapped up Meghna Gulzar’s Raazi, reportedly left for Israel with Ranbir Kapoor and Ayan Mukerji, her Brahmastra co-star and director respectively.

The superhero film will be shot in three parts. After wrapping up the project’s first schedule, Alia will start shooting for Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy, starring Ranveer Singh. A source tells mid-day that Sadak 2, which pairs Alia with rumoured beau Sidharth Malhotra, has suffered because of her other projects. “Alia is juggling Brahmastra and Gully Boy. While the former releases in 2019, the latter is scheduled to hit screens later this year. Alia will also be busy promoting Raazi for a couple of months, as it releases in May. So, Sadak 2 has been postponed. It will roll by the end of 2018.”

The sequel will take off from Sadak lead actor, Sanjay Dutt’s character taking a leap of 26 years. When mid-day reached out to Alia, she refused to comment on the project. “Whenever I’ll work in my father’s production, the news will be out there for everyone to know. As of now, I can’t reveal anything.”
