“Amrita Singh is often seen spending quality time with her children, Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan. However, there was a time when Amrita felt guilty about not spending enough time with her kids, especially Ibrahim.
After her divorce from her then-husband Saif Ali Khan in 2004, Amrita had to get back to work. She starred in Ekta Kapoor’s TV show Kavyanjali to earn money and was also offered good films.
She, however, regretted not spending enough time with Ibrahim who was just four-year-old at that time. She said, “I do regret the fact that my son Ibrahim who’s just four can’t get the same attention from me as my daughter Sara did. Because Mama is out making a living.”””
Director Ali Abbas Zafar says he is chalking out a plan to reteam with Bollywood superstar Salman Khan for a big action film.
If all goes well, the potential project will mark the duo’s fourth feature film together following blockbusters such as Sultan, Tiger Zinda Hai and Bharat.
Zafar said he has already started working on the script of the movie. Speaking to PTI in a Zoom interview, the 40-year-old filmmaker said, “Salman sir and I will come together to do a big-budget quintessential Indian entertainer. I want to do a big action film with him. It is something I am working on and I will share the script with him soon,”
Zafar’s last project was the web show Tandav”
“Shah Rukh Khan’s role as an anti-hero in Baazigar is still considered a major milestone in his cinematic journey. For an actor who was still new in the film industry at the time, this was a huge risk but SRK got a lot of praise for the role.
Directors Abbas-Mustan revealed that the film was first offered to Anil Kapoor who refused to do the role. “It came up in the discussion that we should narrate it to Anil Kapoor. He said that with the kind of films I am doing, I won’t be able to do this role. Someone came up with Shah Rukh’s name and suggested his name for the film and producer Ratan Jain agreed to cast him.”” ”
“Director Ayan Mukerji‘s recent cinematic offering Brahmastra Part One Shiva has got a lot of love from the audience after its theatrical release on September 9. The movie, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles, has not only ended the dry spell at the box office but also given the audience a much-needed dose of entertainment. Now, to express gratitude and seek blessings, Ayan along with Ranbir was seen at the Somnath temple to seek blessings.
Ayan uploaded a post on his Instagram where he got clicked with Ranbir, who played the character of Shiva in the film. “Had told me I would come here after Brahmāstra releases, and am so happy and energised that we made it here!””
“The audience welcomed Nagarjuna Akkineni’s Anish in Brahmastra with cheers and whistles. However, this kind of audience response is not a new phenomenon for the Telugu actor.
Talking about the response to Brahmastra, the 63-year-old star said, “I am glad this happened to Brahmastra. We really worked hard for it. We are paying attention to all the fan theories. We are enjoying it. It is such a powerful character.””
Brahmastra also stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy”
“We end this bulletin with some news on Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan’s upcoming neo-noir thriller Vikram Vedha, a remake of the Tamil film of the same name, which is set to release in 100 countries.
