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.
“Filmmaker Aanand L Rai on Wednesday said he makes movies for the Indian middle class. Aanand spoke about the motivations for his film’s setting, as well as working with Akshay Kumar at the launch of the song for his next film Raksha Bandhan.

He said, “”I love the middle-class world. And whatever I have learnt from my roots, I try to stay honest about its representation onscreen. So, I make films for the Indian middle class. Akshay said he has made me direct two films back-to-back but he doesn’t know that I wanted to do it. I didn’t want to leave him. I will prepare for the third film.”””
“Meanwhile,

Akshay Kumar on Wednesday launched the song “Tere Saath Hoon Main” from his upcoming film Raksha Bandhan, directed by Aanand L Rai. Raksha Bandhan is Kumar’s second collaboration with Rai after doing an extended cameo in the latter’s Atrangi Re, starring Sara Ali Khan and Dhanush. At the launch of the song Akshay said he is ready to collaborate with Rai again but on one condition.

He said, “Aanand Ji is a very good person. I have done two films with him and I will do one more film with him if Raksha Bandhan works.”

Raksha Bandhan, also starring Bhumi Pednekar, will release in theatres on August 11.


“Moving on,

Describing his upcoming film Shamshera as “a big-screen spectacle” full of mysteries, director Karan Malhotra said the movie will turn out to be an adventure of a lifetime for the audiences. Billed as a revenge-action entertainer set in the 19th century, Shamshera stars Ranbir Kapoor in the double role of Shamshera and his son, Balli.

Produced by Aditya Chopra-led Yash Raj Films, the movie also stars Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor.

The highly anticipated movie, whose trailer was released last week, follows the story of a warrior tribe living in the fictitious city of Kaza and their fight for independence against British rule.

Shamshera will be released in the theatres on July 22 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.”
“The makers of Shamshera dropped a new song, Ji Huzoor. In this new catchy track with an addictive chorus, Ranbir Kapoor has a chance to show off his exceedingly energetic dancing skills as he plays with children, jumps from heights, and gets pushed on trolleys while scaling a mountain of chairs. He exudes the same trademark charm as Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani and Besharam, except this is set during the pre-Independence period.

The song has been sung by Aditya Narayan and Mithoon and might just become the next Bollywood earworm.

Shamshera, starring Ranbir in the lead role, is directed by Karan Malhotra and marks Ranbir’s return to films after a gap of almost four years. ”
“Meanwhile,

Actor R Madhavan on Wednesday revealed that he played a prank on his brother-in-law by sending a photo of himself in his Nambi Narayanan get-up hugging his wife Sarita. In a social media post, Madhavan mentioned that his brother-in-law was “freaked out” by the picture.

Sharing the photo on Twitter, Madhavan wrote, “My brother-in-law freaked out when I sent him this photo of my wife.”

For Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, Madhavan underwent extensive make-up and even altered his facial features to achieve the look of 79-year-old former ISRO scientist Nambi Narayanan

Rocketry will release in India on July 1 in Tamil, Hindi and English. It has also been dubbed in Telugu and Kannada.”
“The makers of Rajkummar Rao and Sanya Malhotra starrer HIT – The First Case released the song “Kitni Haseen Hogi” on Wednesday. The track is composed by Mithoon.

“Kitni Haseen Hogi”, with vocals by Arijit Singh and Mithoon, is a soft love ballad. In the music video of the song, we see Sanya trying to help Rajkummar overcome his PTSD and the demons from his past. In the process, she tries to fill his life with happiness and colours and does things that’ll easily resonate with every real-life couple.

Based on the Telugu film of the same name, HIT is directed by Sailesh Kolanu, who also directed the original. It will release in theatres on July 15.”
“Maheep Kapoor on Wednesday gave a glimpse into her family time with Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja, who are expecting their first child. In the photos, Sonam is seen happily posing with Maheep, Sanjay Kapoor and their son. One of the photos captured Sonam and Anand in a candid moment.

Maheep wrote with the photo, “Afternoon with my beautiful niece, baby bump and Anand,”


“And finally,

Actor Jaideep Ahlawat paid a visit to Sutapa Sikdar, the wife of the late actor Irrfan. He took to Instagram and shared an emotional post along with several photos of his visit. In the first, an emotional Jaideep stands next to a picture of Irrfan.

Jaideep wrote, “Thank you so so much Ma’m @sikdarsutapa for everything … I felt like I was Home. We see you soon Bro @babil.i.k
Love You.”

In one of the photos, he sits around lots of mangoes that have been harvested from trees sowed by Irrfan.”
