Hrithik Roshan to Make Cameo In Marathi Film

After Shah Rukh Khan gave the mahurat clap for fashion designer Vikram Phadnis’s directorial debut, the Marathi film Hrudayantar, in December, the ace fashion designer has now roped in Hrithik Roshan for a special appearance in the film.

Tiger Shroff’s Befitting Response to Ram Gopal Verma

Tiger Shroff is known for his generous nature. Recently, Ram Gopal Varma viciously attacked him on his birthday. In a series of tweets, RGV insulted the Heropanti star and compared his masculinity to his dad Jackie Shroff’s. Taking a jibe at him, he called him a ‘bikini babe’ and asked him to learn some ‘macho’ lessons from Jaggu dada.

While he maintained a stoic silence on the whole issue, he finally responded to the tweets citing, “I am not even half a man as my father is. Even if I try I can’t be like him. But everyone has freedom of speech. He is a senior director, so, there’s not much I can say. I try to be my own individual and express my individuality. Some might appreciate my artistic expressions, some may not.”

Sonam Digs At Kangana for Entertaining Spat With Karan Johar

The recent ugly spat between Kangana Ranaut & Karan Johar has divided the movie buffs into two – while some are supporting Kangana for her bold statements, some are criticizing her! It all started when Kangana referred to Karan as the ‘flag-bearer of nepotism’.

In a recent interview with a news channel, when Sonam was asked about her opinion on the fight with Karan & Kangana, here’s what the actress said, “I don’t know Kangana. I know Karan very well. I find Kangana very entertaining and that’s about it. I don’t want to comment on something that looks opportunistic, honestly. And I believe you are a feminist when you build other people up, especially other women.” We wonder, how Karan or Kangana would react to these statements of Sonam Kapoor.

Hollywood Producers Lining Up to Sign Priyanka, Not Deepika

Priyanka Chopra is in the best phase of her career right now. She has become a famous name in the West and is very busy climbing the success ladder. But what about Deepika Padukone? We all know Deepika Padukone’s xXx didn’t do anything to help build her career in the foreign land. According to Deccan Chronicle, Deepika failed to create any buzz with xXx while big producers are lining up to sign Priyanka.

Talking about the same a source said, ”Deepika’s xXx: The Return of Xander Cage came and went without a whimper. Priyanka, on the other hand is so ‘out there’ in her Hollywood debut movie, Baywatch, that there’s already a queue of big Hollywood producers lining up to sign her in LA. There’s a huge pre-release buzz surrounding Priyanka Chopra’s Hollywood debut, which was missing when Deepika Padukone showed up in xXx.”
