SRK and Anushka Sharma’s Jab Harry Met Sejal trailer is finally out

Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma’s movie Jab Harry Met Sejal had been in the news a lot lately, in anticipation of the movie’s trailer release.

After a delayed movie title announcement, several mini trailers and a hardcore movie promotion, the movie trailer was something every SRK fan had been waiting for. Today, several days after the release of the mini trailers, the producers finally decided to release the official trailer during an event.

The movie directed by Imtiaz Ali, is a story of a Punjabi guy named Harry and a Gujrati girl named Sejal.

The trailer starts off with SRK seeing off Anushka’s family who he served as a tour guide. But fate had other plans for the two. While Anushka loses her engagement ring, she stays back to search it alone with SRK’s assistance. The trailer unfolds how the two work together, fall in love and come to realise it, yet keeping the whole story under wraps.

While it is a love story, it also seems to focus on finding love in the most unconventional way. Check out the trailer below.

The movie is scheduled to release on the 04th of August. Are you excited?

Anushka Sharma’s latest Pari poster will send shivers down your spine

Actress-turned-producer, Anushka Sharma has been very busy lately with promotions for her upcoming movie with SRK, called Jay Harry Met Sejal. About a month ago she took to Instagram to announce that she has started shooting for her net movie called Pari.

The first poster of the movie showed off a unique look of the actress and spiked the interest of many.

Just a few hours ago, the ace actress took to Instagram again and shared another picture to announce the release date of the movie. The movie that is currently under production will release on the 09th of February next year.

While we are all excited to find out the date, the poster itself left us shocked. Anushka Sharma is clicked lying on the floor. While her expression is distressed and lost in thoughts, the bruises and blood stains on her ankle indicate that she has been held captive by someone.

Although the name had left everyone thinking it may be a fantasy movie, the latest poster is hinting towards a thriller movie.

The movie will be her third movie produced under her production house, Clean Slate Films. The previous two productions being NH7 and Phillauri. While NH7 was loved by all, Phillauri received mixed reviews. When asked about her hopes for the movie Pari and her production house, here’s what she had to say, “At Clean Slate Films, we focus on a good, engaging story above all else. With new talent, we get to work on newer ideas and innovative concepts. Pari is a great script, and I have complete faith in Prosit’s vision as well as this collaboration with KriArj Entertainment.

Well we wish her all the luck for her latest project and cannot wait to find out more about the movie.

Ranveer Singh has been immortalized by the French

Ranveer Singh had a ball of a time celebrating his birthday yesterday with his lady-love, Deepika Padukone, in his new Aton Martin car that he gifted himself. While the 32-year old’s birthday is over, the best gift arrived later in the day yesterday.

A few months ago, a photo of him getting measured for a wax statue at Paris’ Grevin wax museum had gone viral. It was also revealed that the statue will be unveiled on his 32nd birthday, which he celebrated yesterday. Following which he shared his excitement with his fans by saying, “It’s a truly special birthday present and one that will always bring back beautiful memories of Paris. I love all things French, and am grateful to the museum that they have given me a permanent place in wax in their home and their hearts.”.

rrr

Well true to their word, the museum delivered. It was only yesterday that the wax statue was revealed and on display for the world to see. The only other Bollywood star to have received this honor is SRK. This makes Ranveer the second Bollywood celebrity to be immortalized by the French museum.

The statue, though not an exact likeness does justify his features. What are your thoughts on his statue?

 

Are Varun And Anushka B-Town’s Latest Pair?

Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan are two of the most well-known actors of the Bollywood industry. While they have been in the news a lot lately for their movies Jab Harry Met Sejal and Judwaa 2, their names have never been mentioned together, until now.

Turns out, the two of them have bagged a movie together and are scheduled to start working for Yash Raj Film’s next project, Sui Dhaga – Made In India. This only goes to mean that Bollywood will receive a new onscreen Jodi in the coming year. While it will be a YRF project, the movie will be directed by Sharat Katariya and produced by Maneesh Sharma.

When asked about his latest project, here’s what Varun had to say, “From Gandhiji to Modiji, our country's leaders have always endorsed the mantra of Made in India. With Sui Dhaaga I am proud to take their message to millions of movie lovers in a manner that is entertaining and relevant. I really liked the script Sharat had written and I am happy that I am teaming up with YRF on this movie. Anushka and I are teaming up for the first time so I am sure there will be fireworks.

Anushka did not shy away from sharing her excitement about the movie, “I always get excited with unique ideas that have human interest stories. Sui Dhaaga is a story of self-reliance that I believe will connect to the grassroots level with every Indian. And, I’m really looking forward to working with Varun Dhawan and the team of Maneesh Sharma and Sharat Katariya.

With the whole team excited for the project, the movie is scheduled to go into production from January 2018 and will release on Gandhi Jayanti 2018.

SRK talks about his 25 years in Bollywood

Shah Rukh Khan has been ruling our hearts ever since he made an entry into Bollywood with his movie Deewana. 25 years down the line and he is still known as the ruling King of Bollywood.

From movies like Baazigar to Raees, there isn’t a character he hasn’t played. The actor who is currently busy promoting his upcoming movie ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’, spoke about his Bollywood journey during an interview.

He started off by thanking his fans for all the love and support he has received over the years. “I got to know the day before yesterday that I have completed 25 years in Bollywood. I don't know the entire calculation but I think I have completed 26-27 years but it feels very good. Half of my life I have spent doing this service and acting. I have earned a lot for myself, respect, work, it is a long time yaar.

He went on to joke about his fans and the chaos that is caused in hopes of spotting him in his home. “I get to know through social media that people come from a long distance – I'm so thankful, neighbours get upset, traffic jams so sorry – I wish my garden gets bigger so everyone can come in.

When asked about his plans for Eid here’s what he had to say, “I am thinking of cooking for my kids today since all three are here – one day I made it recently so my daughter said thek thak ban gaya."

It is common knowledge that SRK has always encouraged his kids to form their own opinions on religion and has never been the one to force them into anything. When asked about it, here’s what he had to say. “When I went to Ram Leela father was happy, I want my kids to learn about religion themselves. I am reading Mahabharata and I tell the stories to Abram. I think it's the greatest stories that have been ever told.

His movie Jab Harry Met Sejal has been in the news lately after the CBFC’s restrictions on its trailer. Here’s how he reacted to it, “To be honest knowing all people involved in this film …we have never said anything disrespectful to families. When they see the film they will understand the context.

As always when quizzed about his children and their Bollywood debut, he said, “They are not movie stars they happen to be children. If you see them publically don't assume they will handle you the way I do. My children will finish their studies – in my house, there is a rule – one should be a graduate. Suhana has many years to go to finish her studies and then she can act.

He went on to talk about his character in the movie. “The film is about a vertically challenged person and to make it in India is quite special. It's like the hobbit and we are really waiting to see the final product. We have filmed the movie in Goregaon and are trying to finish it in December.

While we can’t wait to see him in his latest movie, we wish him all the luck and hope to see him active in the world of Bollywood for the next 25 years and more. 

Salman brings Gandhian principles to Life

Salman Khan is on a roller coaster right now. He wants to act in the best films, choose the best scripts and in this pursuit he is even ready to give up on his Star persona, if it fits his role. Starting from Bajrangi Bhaijaan to Sultan, we saw a different Salman, a far cry from what has been given to us by popular media. Film Tubelight makes us respect him more for the craft that he believes in and simply his intention to be called a very good actor now. In Tubelight, you neither see a wrestler, nor a lover boy and definitely not a gangster. He is innocent, slow, willing to learn new tricks of acting and definitely taking a lot of risks on the way.

Tubelight is an official adaptation of an American film – Little Boy. In contrast to a little kid playing the character there, here we have a 50 year old behaving like a child. Cashing in on the popularity that Bajrangi’s character enjoyed, Salman Khan steps into the shoes of another ‘boy next door’- Laxman Singh Bisht. He is mentally slow, takes things on face value and takes time to rise to the occasion.  His Chacha, Om puri, a staunch Gandhian and promoter of non-violence teaches him a few theories of Gandhi which change the course of his destiny.

Yakeen ho to Chattan ko bhi hilaya ja sakta hai. And the problems that seem as big as a mountain can be moved too.

If your brother is fighting a war with the Chinese Army, is it possible to live with a family of Chinese descent with peace and love ? yes, because Gandhi fought a war and beat the British without hating them at all. What a beautiful thought to be making a film on. I loved the Idea.

In the film you see the world of 1960s, radio is your first love and the only medium to keep abreast with the world. In terms of art direction there is nothing new or unique but the setting definitely provides a fresh visual to the eyes.  The most lovable and moving parts of the film are ones where we see Om puri in his conventional baritone voice and splendid natural grace. Never overdoing things. For a moment you shed a tear at the thought that we will not see this actor oar excellence again as this one was his last. 

Having said that, he still seems underutilized in the film.

Salman Khan tries to deliver the most memorable film of his life by blindly trusting the director and writers, often to be disappointed by them.  What comes across as an inspiration from Tom Hanks’ film Forest Gump, he is dumb but good at heart, largely relying on the few cringing expressions and lot of tears. You would be moved by Salman in a few scenes though. He doesn’t shy away from looking absurd or childish. Mostly wearing old styled sweaters and torn shoes, it does look adorable.  

What else is good, well the music. Its seamless. What does not work for the film, It’s the writing of the film that takes away from all the charm. Tubelight will always be compared with Kabir and Salman’s terrific director – actor pairing in Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Tubelight is a disappointment in this series. The writing is patchy, inconsistent and plain dull. The brilliant story on the paper never gets translated into a heart wrenching, moving film. Unlike in Bajrangi Bhaijaan we never came to the edge of our seat. Neither with awe, nor with thrill.

 Sohail as a brother to Salman is obviously most natural in this relationship on screen. As a respite, we see a fresh face in the film as opposed to the starlets of the film industry. The scenes between Chinese actress Zhu Zhu and Salman exuded freshness but it’s the little boy from Arunachal Pradesh – Matin Rey Tangu who gets the cake and eats it too.

While the film tries to convey a very valid point and message, how Gandhiji’s teachings are still relevant in today’s times, can we beat our opponent with sheer love?, Salman’s fans can be in for a little disappointment as his traditional moves, the anger, romance, the twinkle in his eyes, the unpredictability of his demeanor , his desi dance moves, the traditional Salman Khan charm is missing here. Also the editor saved too much reel by keeping the scenes long and cumbersome.

However, Shahrukh Khan’s cameo adds zing to the beginning sequence. The two mega stars coming together in one frame after  decades is certainly worth a whistle. The few wrinkles on each face are also reflective of the time we all have lived watching the both of them.

It’s a sweet film with no space for negativity. Film is emotional in parts but largely remains dull filmmaking.

You have got to love SRK and Anushka Sharma’s new movie title

Imtiaz Ali’s next movie starring Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma has been the talk of the town lately. While there have been many pictures from the shoot doing the rounds, the name of the movie had been under wraps. Until Now!

The trio has been known for their unique style in everything they do. And we couldn’t expect anything less from them when it came to announcing the title of the upcoming movie.

The title was announced in two parts. Anushka Sharma took to Instagram to announce the first half of the name with the cutest question asking SRK what he seeks?

 

What you seek.. @iamsrk @redchilliesent

A post shared by AnushkaSharma1588 (@anushkasharma) on

Of course, the king of romance stayed true to his style while replying to the question. He shared the second half of the title, telling Anushka he seeks her.

 

‪…is seeking you! @anushkasharma @redchilliesent

A post shared by Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) on

Put together, the movie title reads, ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’. Remind you of another movie? Our thoughts exactly. The movie title is quite similar to Imtiaz’s previous movie titled ‘Jab We Met’ and the Hollywood hit ‘When Harry Met Sally’. Good play on the words there Imtiaz! The movie is an Indian romantic drama and is scheduled to release on the 04th of August this year.

Are you excited to watch SRK and Anushka’s on-screen chemistry again? 

Birthday Special: Why Is SRK Bollywood’s King Of Romance?

On SRK's Birthday, we really wanted to give him some credit for being every woman's "Man of Dreams"! Here's to Bollywood's King of Romance & his romantic charms! Read on! Cheers!

King Khan is truly deserving of the 'King of Romance' title because he believes in the philosophy of Pyaar pyaar pyaar, baant te chalo pyaar.

Baadshah Shah Rukh Khan has romanced everyone ranging from Principal ki beti (Mohobbatein) to Bhoot ki beti (Chamatkar) & from Don ki beti (Chennai Express) to Dost ki mangetar (Pardes)!

He clearly has a lot of love to give! There are these perfect reasons why he's called what he's called – King of Romance

1. You will turn around when he says 'palat'!

Remember that iconic scene from DDLJ & Dilwale? Who doesn't? And we are sure that it will be remembered for ages!

2. He had the audacity to win his love from his boss!

He won over Juhi Chawla in Yes Boss from his boss! Now that's how far you can go for your love!

3.  After boss, he had the audacity to win his love from the neighbouring country!

In Veer Zara he crossed the border to win his love! That's beyond words, isn't it?

srk

 4. Your heart literally melts when he plays the violin!

Spring starts showing it's magic when he plays the violin!

srk

5. He treats his love like the princess she is!

Every girl wants a man who makes her feel like a princess! SRK did that for Anushka Sharma in RNBDJ! Didn't he?

In Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, SRK said "Pyaar dosti hai"! A partner who is also your best friend! What more do you want?

srk

7. SRK's signature steps welcome all women with open arms!

When SRK does the signature step, all female stars come running to him, of course, don't miss the dupatta flying in the background!

srk

8. He can set a perfect date anywhere he stands, something like, "Hum jahaan khade hote hain, date wahin se shuru hoti hai"!

Who said that only candle light dinners could be romantic? In Kabhi Khushi, Kabhi Gham, SRK proved that even a date to the mela can be romantic as hell!

srk

9. He can make anyone blush with his charm, and of course his million dollar dimples!

Be it Rahul or Devdas, every character of his knows how to make any girl blush & go "issshh"!

srk

10. He dotes on wifey Gauri Khan too much & gives every man major husband goals!

He came to Bombay with the love of his life & he is such a loving husband, he loves his wife so much that he refuses to kiss any lady on-screen!
