<img class="size-full wp-image-664914 aligncenter" src="http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Anurag-Kashyap-1.jpg" alt="Anurag Kashyap" width="620" height="420" /> Readers may recall that, around a week back, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap had taken to Twitter and tweeted a series of tweets to India’s Prime Minister stating “@narendramodi Sir you haven’t yet said sorry for your trip to meet the Pakistani PM.. It was dec 25th. Same time KJo was shooting ADHM? Why?” Needless to say, this tweet garnered a huge uproar (mostly backlash) on the social media. A couple of days later, Anurag Kashyap again took to the social media and wrote an extensive explanation of just what his tweets had actually meant. As per <strong>Bollywood Hungama</strong>’s reliable sources, the ‘tweeting to PM’ issue of Anurag Kashyap just did not go well with the ‘who’s who’ of Phantom Films. That’s why Phantom Films’ Vikas Bahl, Vikramaditya Montwani and Madhu Montena met up for an all-important meeting with Anurag Kashyap. Also present during the meeting were a few senior officials from Reliance Entertainment, who just did not want Anurag Kashyap to stir any kind of controversies. All of the aforementioned names met Anurag Kashyap and issued a stern warning asking him to refrain from tweeting such statements, as it could land up affecting Phantom Film’s forthcoming movies, which includes <em>Bhavesh Joshi</em> starring Harshvardhan Kapoor.
<img class="size-full wp-image-664897 aligncenter" src="http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/varunarjun.jpg" alt="varunarjun" width="620" height="420" /> Arjun Kapoor and Varun Dhawan will take the hot seat and bringing the house down with hosts, Riteish Deshmukh and Sajid Khan on the show Yaaron Ki Baraat. The show is about testing celebrity friendships through a series of fun games, tasks, challenges and the joyride that ensued had the dashing duo sharing the craziest stories about each other. Being chaddi buddies, Arjun and Varun are thick as thieves and were up to no good most of the time in their childhood. Today, they are not only peers in Bollywood with a rich Bollywood lineage but have also seen each other grow through various stages in their life. Making their entry in the show in their own quirky style, both the talented actors pretended to be janitors and doppelgangers of their celebrity selves. After settling down and talking to the charming hosts, Arjun revealed that he was actually very good friends with Varun’s elder brother and all three of them would hang out together. Arjun and Varun joined Barry John's film academy and since then, they have come a long way from making their debut in the same year to hitting the seven movie milestone together in their respective careers! When asked about their hidden talents, Varun spoke of how Arjun is not just an excellent actor but also a brilliant director and editor, making him a complete package. Arjun worked as an assistant director on the critically acclaimed <em>Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna</em> when he was barely 17 and learnt the art of film making. He also worked as an assistant director on the movie <em>No Entry</em> along with Varun. While at it, he made a rough edit of the film and showed it to Varun. So floored was Varun with this edit, that he immediately went to his dad (David Dhawan) and told him about Arjun's hidden talent. What's more …During a conversation at a party, Arjun had assessed Varun’s capabilities and told him that when he'd make his debut as a director, he would cast Varun in his movie. Varun mentioned that he is waiting to be cast by Arjun in his directorial venture! Even though it may seem that the two are from wealthy Bollywood families, both Arjun and Varun insist that they are essentially technicians’ sons. This aspect of their father’s career’s as director and producer came as a blessing as they learnt some of their most important lessons from their fathers ... things that they apply in their professional lives even today. Both admitted that these learnings have played a significant part in making them the stars they are today. When asked about his biggest learning from his father David Dhawan, Varun shared that he knows how upset a director gets when the actor is not punctual and when the film does not do well. So he makes sure that he is on time and gives every shot his one hundred percent. Arjun Kapoor, the son of one of the most famous producers of Bollywood – Boney Kapoor, also learnt from his father the value of the money that a producer invests in a film and the efforts of every single crew member, right from the lights man to the make-up dada and the spotboy. He learnt not to take any of these for granted and to do justice to every shot and every take.
<img class="size-full wp-image-664894 aligncenter" src="http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Big-B-1.jpg" alt="Big B" width="620" height="420" /> A couple of days ago, Ram Gopal Varma announced the revival of his much ambitious film <em>Sarkar</em> with its third installment and gave the audience the details of the cast on social media. Now that the film has gone on floor, a surprise visitor on the sets have led to many speculations. Recently, actor Balakrishna aka Balayya paid a visit to Amitabh Bachchan on the sets of <em>Sarkar 3</em>. What followed were rumours that state that this was not just a mere surprise but a discussion that happened between the two about a forthcoming film. Apparently, Balayya has approached Big B for his next film titled <em>Rythu</em>, which will be directed by Krishna Vamsi. It is being said that though it will be a brief role, the megastar has given a nod to a 17 day schedule for the same. Amitabh Bachchan was last seen in <em>Pink</em> starring Taapsee Pannu which went on to become a sleeper hit of 2016.
<img class="size-full wp-image-664874 aligncenter" src="http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Geeta-Phogat.jpg" alt="Geeta Phogat" width="620" height="420" /> The Aamir Khan starrer <em>Dangal</em> is fast picking up steam, thanks to the trailer that was released yesterday. However, apart from the joy of the release of the trailer, Geeta Phogat whose life is also featured in the film had an additional reason to celebrate as she was appointed as the Deputy Superintendent of Police. In fact Geeta who won India’s first gold medal in women’s wrestling in 55-kg category in Commonwealth Games in Delhi six years ago, was appointed by the Haryana cabinet as Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) within the Haryana Police. With this, there is a reason for a double celebration for the Phogat family.
<img class="size-full wp-image-664867 aligncenter" src="http://www.bollywoodhungama.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Mahesh-Bhatt.jpg" alt="Mahesh Bhatt" width="620" height="420" /> Dealing with complicated relationships amidst a much realistic setting and grey areas of human emotions, Mahesh Bhatt’s style of filmmaking was often considered unconventional. One amongst his list of iconic films was <em>Arth</em> starring Shabana Azmi and Smita Patil along with Kulbushan Kharbanda. And now, owing to the current trend of remakes, yet another film entering the league is <em>Arth</em>. Talking about how Sarath Chandra and Pravesh Bhardwaj have been persuading him for the remake rights for the past eight months, Mahesh Bhatt added that they view it as a challenge considering that they are dealing with a cult. He also mentioned that the duo will add a contemporary touch to the film and that he has also suggested them a writer who can write the script for the new version. Readers may recall <em>Arth</em> was also converted into a play few months ago. <em>Arth</em> is said to be semi-biographical film based on the relationship between Mahesh Bhatt and Parveen Babi. The film had Shabana Azmi playing the role of a wife of Kulbushan Kharbanda who gets involved in an affair with the possessive natured actress played by Smita Patil. While the film explores the journey of relations, trapped in a web of right, wrong and legit, the climax of the film has Shabana walking away from her marriage and leading a life on her own. The film had suffered in terms of takers in the initial stage due to its unconventional climax.
