Adorable! Shahid Kapoor talks about his special moment with daughter Misha

Shahid Kapoor is a doting family man and there’s no doubt about it. Being a busy man that he is, Sasha makes sure to spend quality time with wife Mira Kapoor and daughter Misha Kapoor from his hectic work schedules. It was yesterday when Shahid thought of delighting all his fans and came for a live chat on Facebook where he answered many of their interesting questions (some of them quite much made us go aww).

During his chat, one of the fans asked him about that one thing which brings a smile on his face after a long day cum what may happen. Answering this question, Shahid sure melt our heart! He said, “The one thing that puts a smile on my face regardless of what has happened in the day is my daughter Misha. Seeing my wife Mira and daughter after I come back makes me happy.”

He also mentioned about how he enjoys his bedtime with daughter Misha. He spoke, “I try to read bedtime stories to Misha. We sing nursery rhymes together,”

The next thing that Kapoor was asked about wife Mira’s reaction on his much awaited Padmavati look, to which, he quickly replied, “After marriage, my wife is Mira Rajput Kapoor. I thought some Kapoor’s head was transferred to Mira, but little did I knew all of her Rajput would come back to me during the making of the film. Apart from the regular pressures of an actor to satisfy his audience, I have the ultimate pressure of living up to my wife’s expectations to portraying a Rajput character,”

Hilarious indeed!

The actor was then asked about wife Mira’s plans of joining Bollywood (if any) Lol!

To this, Shahid replied, “It’s not my decision that what my wife wants to do. It’s for her to decide and I will be supportive of her if she wants to become an actor.”

Woah!

Last but not the least, Shahid also spoke about his special moment with daughter Misha. Being a cutie that he is, SK commented, “It’s difficult to choose one moment with your child. Every day is etched in my mind when I am around her. Every time she notices me and she calls me papa, it’s very special.”

Simply adorbs!! Love love!

Shruti Haasan is inspired of Priyanka Chopra's Met Gala 2017 dress

Priyanka Chopra’s Met Gala 2017 appearance was one of a kind. PeeCee donned a brown Ralph & Russo number, a trench coat featuring a thigh high split and possibly the worlds largest trail. Be it the memes that followed the appearance or PeeCee’s jaw-dropping looks, it was definitely one of the most talked about red-carpet appearances of 2017.
 
Just last night, Femina hosted its Stylista West 2017 awards in the city. And we can’t help but recall PeeCee’s Met moment as soon as we saw Shurti Haasan. The actress walked the red carpted donning a blood red trench coat with a similar thigh high split, plunging neckline but a shorter trail. What’s more? The actress even did the same hairdo as PeeCee, she tied her tresses up in a top knot with minimal makeup and bold red lips.
 
While we are totally loving Shruti’s red hot appearance, we still can’t get over PeeCee’s long trail. Which one do you like better? Tell us in the comments below.

She then posted another insight from their meeting which was a video of Ranbir where the actor was seen praising Gauri. He said,  “I collaborated with Gauri on my house so I know her talent. I have been witnessed to how she designs the space and makes it to your home. It’s exquisite and at the same time the glamour quotient is really high. It’s the first time that I have visited Gauri Khan Designs. Each floor is different and you have to see it to believe it.”

Is Ranveer Singh seeing a psychiatrist after playing Alauddin Khilji?

Is Ranveer Singh seeing a psychiatrist after playing Alauddin Khilji?
Ranveer Singh is known for his method acting. The actor has been quite vocal about putting himself through pain and procedure to get into the feel of his character. And the same goes for his character of Alauddin Khilji who is a menacing and cruel antagonist in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus next, Padmavati.
If these recent reports are to be believed, Ranveer went so negative for his character that he is now seeing a shrink to get back to normal. A source revealed, “Ranveer has his friends and family worried. To play Alauddin Khilji, he has been researching and exploring extreme negativity. To become Khilji, he took the same route as he did to play Peshwa Bajirao. He locked himself up in his apartment, prepped and stayed in the head space for weeks. Getting out of this dark, intimidating mindset wasn’t easy for him. The film has also been shot for almost a year now, so sustaining the Khilji persona was very challenging. It affected his reactions and behavior towards people. Which is why, his friends advised him to get help in emerging beyond Khilji. He is going to a psychiatrist to get rid of the Khilji influences.”
On the sets of the film, Ranveer avoids any human contact in order to stay into the emotions and expressions of his character. The actor has reportedly been taking holidays post every schedule and has even bought himself a luxury car to cheer up his mood. And now that nothing helped him enough, Ranveer is seeing a psychiatrist to get over the negativity.

Saif Ali Khan shares his experience of shooting Sacred Games on the streets of Mumbai

Saif Ali Khan is all set to make a debut on the web with US-based on-demand streaming website Netflix’s original web series titled Sacred Games. The series is set in Mumbai as it revolves around the city’s intricate web of organised crime, corruption, politics and more. It is based on Vikram Chandra’s novel with the same name.

Recently, during an interview with a leading daily, Saif spoke at length about his web venture. He said, “It is not a web series. I want to call it streaming content. So far, it is very artistic and Vikramaditya Motwane and Anurag Kashyap are amazing to work with. This is the first time I am working with them. They are helping me improve my game tremendously. It’s an exciting space.”

When asked about his street shooting in Mumbai, Saif revealed, “We had to shoot in a public bathroom. It is the worst thing I have seen. I was worried about Hepatitis. So they cleaned it up because I couldn’t breathe. I felt like I will die here.”

No Tanu Weds Manu 3 happening! Aanand L Rai confirms

Aanand L Rai has made a name for himself as a successful director in the film industry by giving us some great hits like Tanu Weds Manu franchise, Raanjhanaa and his latest Shubh Mangal Saavdhan.
 
His film Tanu Weds Manu was a turning point in Kangana Ranaut’s career and till today is considered to be her one of the finest performances. Speaking about the same in his conversation with a popular daily, Aanand earlier mentioned, “Tanu Weds Manu was my first hit. Kangana and I enjoyed working on TWM. We shared a great rapport. After I wrapped up Raanjhanaa and she finished Queen, we came together for TWM Returns.” 

He further added, “I was looking for my Kangana and she wasn’t there. Her loyalty was with the actor inside her; I wasn’t taking the film as seriously as she was.” 

Though, all this while there were rumours doing rounds of a fallout between the two which led to Tanu Weds Manu 3 being postponed. Rubbishing any such news, Aanand said, “What fallout? Once I am done with Khan saab’s (Shah Rukh Khan)  film, we will start working on the script for the third part.”

Even Kangana spoke about the same and said, “Once the pressure of Manikarnika is off me, I’ll meet and spend some time with him. The third part of Tanu Weds Manu will have to be crackling. So far, there’s no discussion, but the film might happen next year.” 

However now Aanand has dismissed his previous statement  about Tanu Weds Manu 3  and said, “Tanu Weds Manu 3 is definitely not happening. I do have something else in the pipeline with Dhanush and will start work on it only post filming my current movie.” 

Sad already?

Saif Ali Khan snaps at a journalist on being asked about Taimur on Chef promotions

Saif Ali Khan snaps at a journalist on being asked about Taimur on Chef promotions

Ever since Kareena Kapoor Khan’s pregnancy was annouced, the entire nation waited with bated breath to see the Jr. Nawab. And as soon as li’l Taimur’s first picture went viral, the boy became the talk of the town. Taimur who is only 9months old, already has a huge fan army and paparazzi frenzy to deal with.

And while Bebo has always been elated and open to discussions regarding Taimur’s growing popularity, Saif was reportedly worried.
 
Both Saif and Kareena are currently working on their first films after Taimur, Chef and Veere Di Wedding respectively. While Kareena is shooting in the capital, Saif is gearing up the release of Chef on October 6th with endless promotions. 
 
Recently, at one such promotional event the actor was asked if he missed Taimur while he was filming for Chef, and what followed next was least expected. The actor gave a beffiting reply to the journalist saying, “You know Taimur Ali Khan is just 9 months old and the child artist with me is 13 years old. You know I don’t think about Taimur after seeing someone else’s son. I always miss him and keep a tab on him. He is my son and I am not confused about the fact that I have a kid. Why are you asking this? Do you have kids?”
 
Oh oh, daddy Nawab is definitely very protective about his li’l prince. Careful!

Filmfare Exclusive Tamannaah talks about doing the Telugu remake of Kangana Ranauts Queen

Filmfare Exclusive! Tamannaah talks about doing the Telugu remake of Kangana Ranaut's Queen
Queen, helmed by Vikas Bhal was the story of a girl’s solo honeymoon in Paris after getting left at the altar on her wedding day. Rani played by Kangana Ranaut became one of the most loved Bollywood characters of recent times. And just yesterday we informed you that Kangana Ranaut’s 2013 hit film Queen is being remade in 4 different South Indian languages. Tamanaah has signed the Telugu remake, Kajal Aggarwal the Tamil one, Manjima Mohan the Malayalam and Parul Yadav the Kannada.

Tamaannaah is one of the biggest stars down South. With an array of blockbusters in her kitty and add to it the Baahubali mania… she’s on top of ever director’s list. The Telugu and Malayalam remakes will be directed by Nellkanta and the Tamil and Kannada ones by  Ramesh Arvind.

In an exclusive conversation with Filmfare, Tamannaah spoke about the film for the first time. Here’s what she said…

“Queen was a conscious decision to be honest. I want to focus on doing films that put emphasis on mature screenplay as well as women oriented scripts. I’m very drawn to the state of self discovery as every woman goes through different stages of realisation and at times you want to sit back and reflect back on your life decisions. I think Kangana was pitch perfect  in the film and established the fact that she is much more than a pretty face.”

When asked about the competition given the fact that three other remakes are simultaneously being made, she said, “The
comptetion I was approached for the Tamil version in the start but ended up doing the Telugu version. The idea of being threatened by competition doesn’t crop up because I think every Queen, whether Tamil, Telugu, Malayam or Kannada will bring to life a new perspective of self discovery. A different director is on board for every language and hence the screenplay would be more layered and unique with the core essence being intact. With regards to the preparation for the role I’m pretty much like Queen in real life as I will portray in reel. I can relate excellently with the core ideology of the film.”

Woot, woot… we’re pretty darn excited to see Tamannaah essay one of the most loved roles of recent times. Aren’t you too?

With that collection, Judwaa 2 has become the fourth hightest opener of 2017 after Baahubali 2 (Rs 41 crores), Tubelight (Rs. 21.5 crores) and Raees (Rs. 20.42 crores). It’s also become the biggest opener of Varun Dhawan’s career. 
What’s more, Varun Dhawan’s latest film has taken a bigger opening than superstar Akshay Kumar’s Toilet: Ek Prem Katha (Rs. 12 crores) and Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal (Rs. 15.25 crores). It’s a big achievement for Varun Dhawan as the film was completely relying on his shoulders. Varun’s massively popularity has helped the film take a strong initial.
Most critics have panned the film but the majority of the audience is loving the film for its mindless entertainment. Today too, the film has taken a good start and the second day collections in all possibilities will be higher than first day. There is a strong chance that the film will cross the Rs. 50 crore mark by the first weekend, making it a winner for sure.
