Hrithik posted a promo from the episode, which shows Rakesh’s entrance and the filmmaker revealing that he normally doesn’t attend reality shows.
Hrithik captioned his post, “Music & songs have always been at the core of the Roshan household, dating back to my grandfather Shri Roshan Lal Nagrath. Excited to watch my dad @rakesh_roshan9 & my dear uncle @rajeshroshan24 come together on TV for the first time to celebrate the music only on #ZeeTV’s #SRGMPLilChamps!””
“In 2022, Anupam Kher appeared in three successful films – The Kashmir Files, Karthikeya 2 and the recently released Uunchai. At the ongoing IFFI 2022 in Goa, Anupam celebrated his successful year with some popular filmmakers including R Balki, Aanand L Rai, Luv Ranjan, Madhur Bhandarkar and Kabir Khan.
Anupam said that Uunchai has been one of the high points of his career so far. He shared the post on Instagram with a caption that read, “Director’s Cut: Thank you for making an actor’s dream come true by bringing some of the finest directors of our country together to felicitate my success in the year 2022 and the success of #SoorajBarjatya’s #Uunchai.”
“Actor Ranbir Kapoor was spotted donning a new and rather intense look for his upcoming film, Animal. In the photo going viral, the actor’s hair is rather loose around him and he is clad in a shirt that appears to have blood streaks. This appearance has heightened the curiosity surrounding the film.
Touted to be a crime drama, Animal is directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, who made his Hindi debut with the 2019 blockbuster Kabir Singh, a remake of his 2017 Telugu hit Arjun Reddy. Animal also stars Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, and Rashmika Mandanna.
Ranbir Kapoor returned to films after four years with Shamshera and Brahmastra in 2022. While Shamshera did not perform as per expectations, Brahmastra became a success.”
“Actor Saif Ali Khan recently revealed that he has learnt much from his older children, Sara and Ibrahim.
Talking to CNBC, Saif opened up about what he learned from his children. He said, “Sara doesn’t like offending people or acting smart with people who act smart. She reminds me to be humble in interactions. Ibrahim is easy-going, and naughty still. He’s fun and a chill guy, his nature is different that way. I don’t know what I learnt, maybe remembering to smile and have a good time””.
Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif got married in December 2021 and they are about to celebrate their first wedding anniversary in a few days. In a recent chat during the promotions of his upcoming film Govinda Naam Mera, Vicky was asked who he would like to choreograph from the film industry since he plays a choreographer in the movie. Vicky instantly responded with Katrina Kaif’s name.
He jokingly told Pinkvilla, “I would like to choreograph Katrina Kaif. She dances well. She is talented, and can do better.”
Directed by Shashank Khaitan, Govinda Naam Mera also stars Kiara Advani, Bhumi Pednekar, and Dayanand Shetty, among others.
The film is all set to release on December 16 on Disney+ Hotstar”
“Bhumi Pednekar, Kiara Advani and Vicky Kaushal are now promoting their upcoming film, Govinda Naam Mera. In a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, Kiara recalled that Bhumi took her first-ever audition.
Hearing that little story, both Vicky Kaushan and director Shashank Khaitan also revealed that at some point, Bhumi had taken their auditions too.
Before becoming an actor, Bhumi Pednekar worked in the casting department at Yash Raj Films. Kiara recalled, “It was not for anything. You just have to go and audition. It wasn’t like there is a film but if they like you, they’ll find a film or whatever and this was like, I’m talking about like 10 years ago,”
