When 'Dance+ Season 6' paid tribute to choreographer Remo D'Souza through their performances, where they showed how he had started from ground zero and became famous because of his unique dancing style, he broke down.
He said: "Whatever I am today, I am because of every single person standing here. I am speechless after this tribute performance. It took me back to my golden days, my struggling days. My entire life flashed in front of my eye because of this 10-minute performance. It has made me emotional. I don't have words to compliment this wonderful performance."
The episode also saw director-choreographer Farah Khan, along with the cast of the popular television show 'Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin' -- Neil Bhatt, Ayesha Singh and Aishwarya Sharma -- joining Remo for the semi-final and cheering up the contestants.
Farah also got emotional and said: "I am grateful that I came here and witnessed this. It is amazing to see how Remo has come a long way and inspired millions of people. It is not possible for everyone to have a huge heart and win over people. Remo has truly made the lives of a lot of people around him, which is extremely commendable and deserves a salute."
She added: "Films and shows come and go! But the way Remo has supported and encouraged people around him has made his legacy stronger. It is the most beautiful legacy."
Remo D'Souza was also seen shaking legs on the popular song 'Muqabala' of 'Street Dancer 3D'. The episode also witnesses a final showdown performance between the top 3 contestants of this season.
('Dance+ Season 6' is streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.)
Actors Shreyas Talpade and Rajpal Yadav are set to entertain the audience with their impeccable comedy tropes in their upcoming family drama 'Mannu Aur Munni ki Shaadi'.
In recent years, Bollywood has seen a significant drop in feel-good movies. 'Mannu Aur Munni ki Shaadi' promises to fill this void and deliver a clean comedy to infuse the hearts of the audience with joy and laughter.
What's more? The film will mark the reunion of Shreyas Talpade and Rajpal Yadav, the duo which has enthralled the audience with their comedy in films such as 'Apna Sapna Money Money'. The film also stars Kanika Tiwari as its female lead.
Helmed by debutant director Deepak Sisodia, 'Mannu Aur Munni Ki Shaadi' promises a hearty mix of comedy, romance, emotions and has a twist at its core.
Talking about family dramas, Deepak said: "I always wanted to debut with a family entertainer which didn't have double meaning jokes, a rare occurrence in Bollywood today.
"I believe laughter is the best gift you can give to the audience and 'Mannu Aur Munni Ki Shaadi' has it in abundance. The film will make you laugh and cry at the same time."
Business magnate and producer, Tinku Quraishi said: "Our motive was to entertain the audience. So, when Deepak approached us with this unique story which was both entertaining and educative, we immediately agreed to back the film."
Adding that there are also other films of similar genre lining up the slate of his production house, he said: "There is a slew of other films which belong to the same genre and we will be working on them soon."
Directed by Deepak Sisodia and penned by Mahesh Rooniwal, 'Mannu Aur Munni Ki Shaadi' is produced by Tinku Quraishi, under his banner, Akki Productions and is co-produced by Amir Qureshi.
This week of 'Bigg Boss 15' has witnessed many moments of conflicts, verbal wars and contestants have tried to demonstrate their power in the 'Bigg Boss' jungle.
However Jay Bhanushali, Akasa Singh, Tejasswi Prakash, and Vishal Kotian became the first four contestants to enter the main house.
Beside this Afsana has fought many of her fellow contestants this week and said some things that have brought down the wrath of 'Bigg Boss' on her. Thus the 'Weekend Ka Vaar' episode started with Afsana Khan facing Salman's wrath for her terrible behaviour.
Now the second day of 'Weekend Ka Vaar' is going to be special with a starry evening. Veteran singer Bappi Lahiri, filmmaker Farah Khan along with comedian, writer and YouTube personality Bhuvan Bam will be seen as celebrity guests.
While contestants will be dancing on the popular tracks of Bappi Lahiri, Farah will be giving some reality checks to the contestants. Afsana will be seen calling herself a fan of Bappi Lahiri and Salman pulling her leg by saying she is a female Bappi Lahiri.
Bhuvan will be seen interacting with the host and promoting his web show 'Dhindora'. Salman will also be giving some tasks to the contestants.
The first full trailer for 'The Batman', directed by Matt Reeves of 'The Planet of the Apes' franchise, and starring Robert Pattinson (most recently seen in Christopher Nolan's 'Tenet') as Gotham's 'caped crusader', was released at a DC Fandome virtual event on Saturday night.
Describing the "dark and gritty" film, Variety.com reports: "In a Gotham City saturated in rain and gloom, Pattinson's 'Batman', just a year into his reign as a costumed vigilante, attacks his enemies with a visceral, unhinged brutality that past live-action Batman movies never quite reached."
The film, it is speculated, pits Batman against the Riddler, played by Paul Dano ('12 Years A Slave'), but the trailer, although it begins with his arrest by the Gotham City police, is centred around the characters of Catwoman, played by Zoe Kravitz ('Big Little Lies') and an unrecognisable Colin Farrell, transformed by prosthetics to become Oswald Cobblespot a.k.a. Penguin, earlier most memorably essayed by Danny DeVito.
Jeffrey Wright, who was seen in action in 'No Time to Die', appears as Gotham City Police Department chief, James Falcone, and James Turturro from 'The Transformers' films as Carmine Falcone. The movie has been slated for a March 4, 2022, release in US theatres.
Telugu megastar Chiranjeevi has been busy with a few upcoming interesting projects in the pipeline. His upcoming action-drama 'Acharya' has grabbed all the attention and is gearing up for a release soon.
Being a Koratala Siva's directorial, 'Acharya' also stars Chiranjeevi's son Ram Charan in one of the lead roles.
Apart from 'Acharya', Chiranjeevi is to appear in his upcoming movies 'Godfather' and 'Bhola Shankar'. Well, there are reports that Chiranjeevi is being approached to host a huge OTT talk show. With other actors like Balakrishna and Nagarjuna hosting shows, it was expected that Chiru would grab similar opportunities.
But, it seems like Chiranjeevi has rejected the offer to appear on OTT platforms for now. There are also talks going on, that he was offered a huge remuneration to appear in an upcoming web series that would be streamed on an OTT platform. But, hard luck, the producers had to back off with these trials, as the 'Acharya' actor is uninterested to take up OTT projects right now.
Chiranjeevi's folks report that he is keen to sign some movie projects after the completion of the current movies and hence could not allocate his time for OTT ventures. There are reports that Chiranjeevi would appear as a guest on AHA OTT's show- 'Unstoppable' which is being hosted by actor Nandamuri Balakrishna.
'Acharya' is touted to be an action-oriented drama, in which the father-son (Chiranjeevi and Ram Charan) duo is to share the screen for the first time in a full length film. Kajal Aggarwal is the female lead opposite Chiranjeevi and Pooja Hegde pairs up with Ram Charan. On the other hand, Chiru's 'Godfather', the Telugu remake of Malayalam hit 'Lucifer', is being shot at a fast pace.
Aryan Khan's troubles with the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) may have dragged Shah Rukh Khan into the kind of spotlight he would have liked to avoid, but he himself is no stranger to controversies.
Stories about him date back to 1992, when he was just another new face with starry aspirations in Mumbai. That year, Shah Rukh Khan picked up a fight with a film journalist and got arrested for causing disorder in the office of the magazine that employed the target of his fury.
In an incident reported by Anupama Chopra in her book on SRK and which he himself later recounted in his interview with David Letterman, the then fledgling actor was upset that the journalist had written about an intimate scene involving Deepa Sahi and him for Ketan Mehta's acclaimed film 'Maya Membsaab'. Sahi, incidentally, is Mehta's wife.
"I'm gonna take off your clothes and make you stand naked with me. Would you find that funny?" SRK, in his Letterman interview, recalled having said to the journalist and then going on to create a scene, which ended up in his arrest. Seeing the state of the lockup inside the Bandra police station, Shah Rukh made peace with both the journalist and the cops.
In the intervening years, SRK had the Samajwadi Party baying for his blood after he declared (jokingly, he said later) at a public function, pointing to the then leading political operative, Amar Singh, that he could see 'darindagi' (evil intent) in his eyes.
Singh, who was then the influential general secretary of the Samajwadi Party, and was close to Amitabh Bachchan, among many other public figures, did not find it funny and vowed to humiliate SRK at an opportune moment. Matters came to a head and Samajwadi workers landed up outside SRK's home.
His daugther, Suhana, was so shaken by the incident that she started crying and this upset Shah Rukh so much that he went to town with his feeling. He said in an interview with an afternoon tabloid, "I am a Pathan and I am very, very, very, very protective about my family."
In 2012, after Kolkata Knight Riders beat Chennai Super Kings in the IPL final, an allegedly drunk SRK got into a scuffle in full public view with a security guard at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium. In his defence, the superstar said the guard had stopped Suhana from joining the celebrations on the ground, but then he aggravated matters by verbally abusing the guard and officials of the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA), in full view of the television cameras around him.
A social media influencer promptly demanded that Shah Rukh be booked under the Juvenile Justice Act for using abusive language in the presence of children. The Mumbai Police filed an FIR and MCA banned his entry into the stadium, but after six years, the cops found no substance in the charges against SRK.
Even before the IPL took off, SRK got into the crosshairs of the Shiv Sena in 2010, when he said he found it "humiliating" that there was pressure on him to not bid for Pakistani cricketers for the Kolkata Knight Riders. The Pakistanis, he said, were the best T20 players in the world.
It provoked the late Bal Thackeray, Shiv Sena supremo and father of the present Maharashtra Chief Minister, Uddhav Thackeray, to threaten to prevent the screening of his just-released film, 'My Name is Khan'. The Bollywood fraternity jumped to SRK's defence and evetually the controversy died down.
When on the subject of 'My Name is Khan', how can we not remember the three occasions when SRK, not unlike the son of the film's protagonist who gets killed because of his Muslim surname, was held back for questioning by immigration officials in US airports.
It happened for the first time in 2008 at Newark's Liberty International Airport, then in New York City in 2012, and finally in Los Angeles in 2016. Of course, Shah Rukh was let off with profuse apologies on each occasion, but, as he tweeted in 2016, "to be detained at US immigration every damn time really really sucks". Apparently, a namesake of the superstar was on the lookout list of the US Immigration and Naturalisation Service.
As if the constant glare of controversy were not enough, even his palatial addresses have been attracting avoidable bad publicity. Mannat, SRK's six-storey bungalow overlooking the Arabian Sea from Land's End, Mumbai, has been dragged to courts by activists, unsuccessfully of course, for violating heritage laws as well as the coastal regulation zone rules.
Even his opulent beach-front mansion at Alibaug, the preferred address of Mumbai's rich and famous, has been embroiled in controversies. In 2018, it was attached by the Income-Tax Department, but the action was vacated by an appellate tribunal.
The company that purchased the land, which was registered in the names of SRK's mother-in-law and sister-in-law, was fined Rs 3.09 crore for being in violation of the Bombay Tenancy Act, which does not allow the conversion of agricultural land for non-agricultural uses.
It has been a red rag for green activists as well, who allege that it also violates the Coastal Regulation Zone provisions that disallow any construction within 500 metres of the high tide line.
L'affaire Aryan Khan may have come as a jolt that SRK may take a long time to recover from, but a row here and a controversy there have been constant companions of the superstar for as long as he has been in the public eye.
Anushka Sharma's latest picture with her daughter Vamika is winning the internet. The actress-producer credits her little bundle of joy for making her braver and more courageous everyday.
On Wednesday night, Anushka posted a heart-warming picture with Vamika on Instagram on the occasion of Durga Ashthami. In the image, the actress is seen smiling looking at her daughter, whose back is towards the camera.
"Making me braver and more courageous every day. May you always find the strength of the goddess in you my little Vamika Happy Ashtami," Anushka captioned the image, which currently has 3.3 million likes on the photo-sharing website.
The picture soon caught the eyes of many Bollywood personalities.
The doting picture made actor Ranveer Singh say "Oh-lay!" in the comment section.
"So precious," said filmmaker-author Tahira Kashyap.
Actress Vaani Kapoor dropped a heart emoji.
Vamika was born on January 11. Anushka and her star cricketer husband Virat, who are fondly called as 'Virushka' by their fans, had tied the knot in December 2017 in Tuscany, Italy.
The actress has two films in the pipeline. She will be seen in Navdeep Singh's 'Kaneda', and a biopic of cricketer Jhulan Goswami.
The actress was last seen in the film 'Zero' in 2018. She produced the web series 'Paatal Lok' and the film 'Bulbbul' for OTT last year.
The survival game series 'Squid Game' is officially the most popular TV show on its initial debut that Netflix has ever released, according to the streaming giant.
The streaming platform said Tuesday that the ultraviolent Korean drama has been sampled by 111 million members since its September 17 premiere worldwide, over the span of just 25 days, reports variety.com.
This means 'Squid Game' has been viewed by more people in its initial month of release than the previous number one holder, 'Bridgerton', which Netflix said had been selected to watch by 82 million households in the first 28 days of release.
The proprietary metric that Netflix is using here is based on the number of accounts that picked a given title and streamed for at least 2 minutes. That sheds no light on how many people watched even one full episode and includes those who checked it out to see what the fuss was about before turning it off.
The company more recently released, for the first time, a ranking of the top 10 most-viewed original shows and films by total hours viewed.
Still, 'Squid Game' has captured gargantuan buzz and has consistently ranked as the number one series across the globe since it debuted, according to Netflix.
Two weeks ago, Netflix co-CEO and content chief Ted Sarandos said the show had a very good chance of becoming the streamer's biggest show ever.
"We did not see that coming, in terms of its global popularity," Sarandos said at Vox Media's Code Conference.
In the show, 456 debt-saddled contestants are mysteriously brought together on an island off the South Korean peninsula to compete in children's games for a huge cash prize with literally life-and-death consequences.
Series creator and director Hwang Dong-hyuk told Variety he first conceived the idea for 'Squid Game' in 2008 as a film. But Korean studios passed because of its violent themes, and he went on to create several hit films before being able to revisit the project about 10 years later.
'Bigg Boss Telugu 5' saw actress Hamida being shown the door during the weekend eliminations. With the nominations heat on Monday, the 'Bigg Boss' house had no bigger issues, except that the housemates nominated each other.
While actor Manas, RJ Kajal, actress Priya, and Anne Master escaped the nominations, all the other housemates fall in the danger zone for the upcoming eliminations. There was an unusual tension between the housemates during the week's nominations on the episode which were telecast on Monday.
Also, the environment had changed a bit post-nominations. VJ Sunny starts to entertain the housemates, going by the promo which was released a while ago. He is seen making fun of the housemates, by imitating the earlier situations in 'Bigg Boss Telugu 5' house.
On the other hand, actress Swetha seems to be on fire. As she already mentioned during her nominations, she seems to find Shanmukh's provocation offensive.
It all started after actor Vishwa had yelled at the housemates during the tasks, when Shannu had mentioned that he wanted to provoke Vishwa to bring out the worst out of him, as a part of game strategy.
Swetha, who already nominated Shanmukh for the same reason, seems furious over the same issue in this episode, going by the promo. Swetha is seen discussing the same thing, over again, with much anger.
Well, the makers have announced the week's captaincy task in which the contestants have to make dolls out of the raw materials provided to them.
Bollywood's livewire star Ranveer Singh shared that while growing up, he was mesmerised by on-screen personalities like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, among others, who have all successfully hosted TV shows and entertained the whole of India.
"Iconic mainstream Hindi film heroes like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar have all connected with and captivated the nation through their television shows. I've idolised them since childhood and closely followed their journey," says Ranveer.
Ranveer is all set to host his first television show 'Big Picture'. He feels it will help him connect with a larger audience.
The actor said: "I always recognised the fact that they garnered an immense amount of love from people for their charismatic turns on the television screen. I have a great opportunity here with the Big Picture to connect with the youth of India as well as the entire Indian family audience.
"I hope I can continue the grand legacy of the mainstream men of Hindi cinema on national television."
On the work front, Ranveer will soon be seen in Kabir Khan's '83', which recreates India's historic World Cup Cricket win in 1983, as well as Rohit Shetty's comedy film 'Cirkus' and action drama 'Sooryavanshi'.
He is also prepping for his role in 'Jayeshbhai Jordaar', directed by Divyang Thakkar.
The makers of the upcoming family entertainer 'Hum Do Humare Do' starring Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Sanon have unveiled the film's trailer on Monday.
The film also features veteran stars Ratna Pathak Shah and Paresh Rawal.
The Dinesh Vijan production takes an "out of the box" look at adoption, telling the story of a man forced to "arrange" a set of parents to impress the love of his life.
Speaking about the movie, Dinesh Vijan says, "Maddock trusts in the power of content driven films, while 'Mimi' was a delightful family entertainer, with 'Hum Do Humare Do', we take the essence of family further, because in the end, a family is a set of people we love and cherish. Our film is a wholesome comedy that can be enjoyed by all three generations".
'Hum Do Humare Do' also stars Aparshakti Khurana. It is directed by Abhishek Jain, produced by Dinesh Vijan, a Maddock Original film, starts streaming from October 29 on Disney+ Hotstar.
