“Let’s begin today’s bulletin with news on the Goodbye family drama, which will be available on Netflix from December 2. Starring Amitabh Bachchan, Neena Gupta and Rashmika Mandanna, the film was released in theatres on October 7.
Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures in association with Good Co, the film also stars Pavail Gulati, Elli Avram, Sunil Grover, Sahil Mehta and Abhishek Khan.
“Salman Khan’s niece Alizeh Agnihotri is set to debut with filmmaker Soumendra Padhi’s next. Soumendra is known for directing the Manoj Bajpayee starrer Budhia Singh: Born to Run, which won the Best Children’s Film award at the National Film Awards in 2016.
Soumendra is also known for directing the Netflix series Jamtara.
Alizeh Agnihotri is the daughter of popular 90s actor Atul Agnihotri and Salman Khan’s sister Alvira Khan Agnihotri. Atul is known for appearing in films like Sir, Aatish, and Krantiveer among others. He also directed the 2004 movie Dil Ne Jise Apna Kahaa, starring Salman and Preity Zinta, and the 2008 film Hello starring Sohail Khan.”
“The makers of the upcoming Bollywood film Shehzada, starring Kartik Aaryan in the titular role, have unveiled its first teaser on the occasion of the actor’s 32nd birthday. Shehzada is the remake of Allu Arjun’s Telugu drama Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo, which was released in 2020.
The teaser begins with a grand entry of Kartik’s Bunty on a horse. Next, we see the actor packing some punches and in the action sequences, we clearly can spot the influence of south films. For instance, people are flying in the air just with one punch and Kartik is doing stunts on his scooter, which looks quite old. There were immediate comparisons with Allu Arjun, who has found immense popularity with the film across India.”
Describing Ghoomer as a unique cricket movie, filmmaker R Balki says his next directorial venture is his way of giving back to the sport.
The story, which he co-wrote with Rahul Sengupta and Rishi Virmani, is inspired by the story of Karoly Takacs, the late Hungarian right-hand shooter who won two Olympic gold medals with his left hand after his other hand was seriously injured.
Balki told PTI on the sidelines of the 53rd International Film Festival of India, “It is a story of a girl, a cricketer, who loses her hand and how a person inspires her to become a champion.”” “
“Actor Sharad Kelkar and late actor Sushant Singh Rajput both gained fame through their television serials. After a few years in television, Sushant made his way to the movies. In a recent interview, Sharad spoke about how the formula of transitioning from television to films has only been cracked by two people – Shah Rukh Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput.
In a conversation with Mashable India, he said, “Sushant did some excellent work in television. He was a good hero. And even in films, he did excellent work. He was one of the finest young talents we had. Unfortunately, he is not with us, He always wanted to do something different, something great, and he achieved that”””
“In other news,
The FIFA World Cup fever has left no prisoners, including celebrities. Bollywood star Varun Dhawan, who is currently busy with the promotions of his upcoming film Bhediya, confessed that he is also an ardent fan of football but has not gotten a chance to watch the ongoing tournament as yet.
The actor then confirmed his plans for watching the world cup and said, “I will be going for the final in Qatar. I hope Brazil gets in over Argentina. Actually, I don’t really mind either of them winning.”
“Actor Bhumika Chawla was seen at a Juhu theatre with her husband Bharat Thakur on Monday evening. In a video going viral on social media, Bhumika, wrapped in a shawl, waved at the paps and took off her mask to pose for them.
Bhumika made her Bollywood debut with the romantic drama Tere Naam in 2003, which starred Salman Khan in the lead role. The film emerged as the highest-grosser of the year.
Bhumika Chawla returned to Bollywood after a long hiatus with the film Operation Romeo in 2022, which was the remake of the 2019 Malayalam movie Ishq, which revolves around moral policing. It also starred Sharad Kelkar, Kishore Kadam, Sidhant Gupta and Vedika Pinto.”
“Suniel Shetty, who is presently promoting his web series Dharavi Bank, did not hold back when he was asked about the current situation of Hindi cinema.
In a chat with ETimes, Shetty was asked why two-hero films are so difficult to make these days, he said, “Each one is insecure about themselves. Each one talks about the amount of money he wants to take home and not about how much money he wants to put into the product,” Suniel also pointed out that actors can’t seem to form strong relationships with their audience.
The trailer for Vadh, starring Sanjay Mishra and Neena Gupta has dropped. A grimy, twisted tale where the lines between lies and truth are blurred, Vadh appears to follow the story of a harrowed couple. However, Sanjay Mishra seems to be serving his brand of justice, as he says at the end of the trailer, he hasn’t killed someone but has committed a ‘vadh’, a righteous killing.
The trailer begins with Sanjay Mishra detailing a gruesome murder that he has committed, while a disbelieving policeman listens to him. The trailer then follows a story of debt and poverty, as he and Neena Gupta struggle to survive. He ends up committing seedy crimes and Neena Gupta warns that he will be caught eventually.”
