You are listening to the Expresso Entertainment Update. Here is the latest news from the world of Bollywood brought to you by The Indian Express.
“Let’s begin with some news from actor Kartik Aaryan.

From the happiness Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’s box office success gave him, to how life changed for him in the last one month, Kartik Aaryan on Wednesday answered several fan questions during an Ask Me Anything session on Twitter.

Calling Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 a “game changer” for him, Kartik said he was high on the success of the film, and the fact that people had seen it multiple times. He then thanked everyone for showing love towards the film.

Replying to a fan who wanted to know about his favourite scenes from the movie, Kartik tweeted, “#AmijeTomar Tandav and #RoohBaba’s entry Scene are among my Fav scenes #BhoolBhulaiyaa2.””
“Meanwhile,

Pankaj Tripathi says he doesn’t like the idea of working in a movie or a show made in a language he is not “comfortable with”. Tripathi said he was also not in favour of his voice being dubbed by another actor.

The actor told PTI, “”My acting and expressions are complemented by my voice. Otherwise my role is incomplete.””


“Moving on,

John Abraham has said that though as a producer he would want to make films for the digital medium, he doesn’t see himself as an OTT actor.

In an interview with ETimes, John said he is fine with releasing his production ventures on streaming platforms, but as an actor, he wants to be on the big screen. The actor added, “I would not like to be available for Rs 299 or 499. I have a problem with it.”

John Abraham’s last release was Attack. While it did not work in theatres, it has enjoyed a steady run on the OTT platform it released on


“The makers of Laal Singh Chaddha are all set to launch their next song “Phir Na Aisi Raat Aayegi”. And before releasing the track, the makers released a snippet of the behind-the-scenes conversation between actor Aamir Khan, composer Pritam and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya. In the video, Aamir can be heard addressing Pritam’s concerns about the song.

Aamir says that Pritam must not worry about the song sounding old-fashioned. “There’s no such thing as old fashioned or new fashioned. There are good songs, and bad songs.”

So far, we have seen three songs from the film release, but without an accompanying video. This, according to Aamir Khan, was deliberate because they felt it would help the music flourish on its own.”
“Meanwhile,

Akshay Kumar, along with filmmaker Aanand L Rai and co-star Bhumi Pednekar, launched the trailer of his upcoming film Raksha Bandhan in New Delhi on Tuesday.

Here, while addressing the press, Akshay spoke about his film clashing at the box office with Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor’s highly-anticipated Forrest Gump remake Laal Singh Chaddha.

The actor said, “It’s not a clash. It’s about good movies coming together. And, it’s a big day. Due to Covid-19, many films did not release and some are still waiting to get a release date. So, it’s natural more films will release together. I hope both films have a good run.”

Akshay’s Raksha Bandhan and Aamir’s Laal Singh Chaddha are scheduled to release in theatres on August 11.”
“Ranbir Kapoor’s comeback year is beginning to take shape. After Dharma Productions recently debuted the long-awaited first trailer for the fantasy epic Brahmastra, Yash Raj Films on Wednesday unveiled the first teaser for the period drama Shamshera.

The teaser doesn’t reveal much about the plot, but it does give a sense of the central conflict. Ranbir Kapoor’s Shamshera is a dacoit who leads his ‘tribe’ in revolt against Sanjay Dutt’s villain. Projected as some kind of saviour, the character is shown leading the charge across vast deserts, and wielding a pickaxe against adversaries, reminding you Mad Max: Fury Road.

Directed by Karan Malhotra, Shamshera also stars Vaani Kapoor, Ashutosh Rana and Saurabh Shukla.


“In other news,

Deepika Padukone was recently seen at an exhibition by a luxury jewelery brand and was pictured along with Academy Award-winning actor Rami Malek and Yasmine Sabri.

For the event, Deepika opted for a stunning white gown with a deep-cut neck and flares that complemented her perfectly. She completed her look with a loose bun and minimal jewelery.

Egyptian actor Yasmine Sabri also posted a video from the exhibition on her Instagram page,

“And finally,

Cinematographer Lawrence D’Cunha, who recently worked with Shah Rukh Khan on an ad film, shared a picture with the star and shared anecdotes about working with him. Lawrence took to Instagram on Tuesday to post the picture, and recalled what a ‘gentleman’ Shah Rukh was.

The picture showed Lawrence posing inside a restroom set next to Shah Rukh, who was dressed simply in a grey T-shirt and was clean-shaven. Lawrence wrote in the caption of his post, “Shah Rukh Khan. My first ad film shoot with King Khan!!! Although he shot throughout the night for his upcoming movie, he came slightly behind schedule but sweetly apologised for the delay.”
