OMG! This is the first girl who made Karan Johar weep

IIFA 2017 Karan Johar all set to host the awards night in New York

Filmmaker Karan Johar took everyone by surprise when he announced the arrival of his twins Roohi and Yash. The actor who kept insisting that he loves to play the role of a father in real life, revealed all about how this girl made him cry with her arrival.

During a recent chat show, Karan Johar unleashed his fatherly side on screen where he spoke about his experience of becoming a parent. Revealing about the fact that he found the need for having his own kids after his 40th birthday, Karan Johar stated that in order to be emotionally ready he even attended therapy sessions and psychology discussions about how it is to be a father and how to raise kids without a mother etc. He even mentioned about how he was asked about children being his backup plan since he did not have a love relationship.

On the other hand, talking about how holding his baby made him cry, Karan Johar spoke about how he couldn’t describe such a beautiful feeling. Adding that his daughter was more vulnerable medically, the filmmaker reminisced about the moment when he held her and how tears started rolling down his face. He further also asserted that those emotions are irreplaceable.

Karan Johar, who recently launched his auto-biography ‘An Unsuitable Boy’, last directed Ae Dil Hai Mushkil starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma. As for his company Dharma Productions, it is riding high on the success of Baahubali 2 which broke the records all over the world.

This is why Satish Kaushik stepped into the shoes of Om Puri for the latter’s last film

This is why Satish Kaushik stepped into the shoes of Om Puri for the latter’s last film

It was definitely a shocker for the entire fraternity who mourned the loss of one of India’s most unconventional actors, Om Puri. While his career has spanned across India and abroad, the veteran star’s last film remained incomplete due to his untimely death.

Recently, Tubelight featured Om Puri in a prominent role and the audiences were more than happy to see him. However, his last film Mr. Kabaadi that he finished shooting was directed by his wife Seema Kapoor. The latter, who has now resumed the film, required Om to do voice over for her film as a narrator besides the prominent role he was playing in the film. However, owing to his demise, the voiceover remained incomplete.

In order to finish the voiceover, Seema Kapoor initially came up with the idea of hiring a mimic artiste to accomplish the same but she couldn’t find one. Stating that even the voice needs a certain performance, Seema decided to rewrite the part of the narrator and instead roped in Satish Kaushik as the new narrator for a fresh voiceover in third person.

Talking about the bond he shared with Om Puri and how he looked up to him, Satish Kaushik spoke about their struggling days and how he has seen him grow up the ladder. Calling this opportunity as a special one for him, Satish also mentioned that Om’s wife Seema is like a sister to him and he was more than happy to receive this honour but asserted that he would never be able to match up to Om Puri’s skills.

On the other hand, expressing her gratitude towards Satish Kaushik who came on board, Seema also appreciated Satish’s efforts of flying down all the way from Delhi to Mumbai to finish the voiceover.

Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur and Diljit Dosanjh to star together in the IIFA movie

Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur and Diljit Dosanjh to star together in the IIFA movie

The International Indian Film Awards just might be the biggest awards functions for Indian films. But in a land where there are numerous such film awards what makes one stand out. Well doing just that are the organizers of the IIFA awards Wizcraft. In fact, we hear that the events management company is all set on venturing into production with a full length feature film.

If that wasn’t well, we also here that the IIFA event which is set to be held in the US will feature majorly in the film which is based on the IIFA awards. Interestingly, since the film will feature the function itself, a host of celebrities attending the show will be seen doing a cameo in the film.

Post the completion of the shoot at the awards function, the rest of the film will be shot starring Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur and Diljit Dosanjh in lead roles. As of now no other details of the yet untitled IIFA movie are available.

BREAKING: Prabhu Dheva signed to direct Salman Khan in Dabangg 3

BREAKING: Prabhu Dheva signed to direct Salman Khan in Dabangg 3

Although we have seen the same characters being retained for the Dabangg franchise, the film underwent changes behind the camera when the sequel hit the silver screen. Now yet again, a new filmmaker has been roped in for the third installment and it is none other than Prabhu Dheva.

While we will be more than happy to see the Wanted team at work [for those who came in late, Wanted starring Salman Khan was directed by Prabhu Dheva], we are yet to receive further details on the same. For the past one year, there have been several speculations about Dabangg 3. Earlier, with the constant reports doing the rounds about Arbaaz directing the same, Salman Khan had to come out to clarify that the news was untrue.

There were further reports last year which claimed that Salman Khan has already started shooting for the film, when pictures of his cop avatar started doing the rounds on social media. However, it was only recently, the director for the third film in the franchise has been finalized.

On the other hand, yet another rumour doing the rounds was the change in the leading lady which it was being said was not Sonakshi Sinha. However, when confronted the actress, she maintained that she was unaware of any such detail.

Let us also tell you that both the films in the franchise were directed by two different directors, wherein, the two installments were directed by Abhinav Kashyap and Arbaaz Khan respectively.

As of now, it is yet to be known when Salman Khan will kick start the shoot of the film since the superstar is already busy with other commitments.

CCI junks complaint against makers of Vidya Balan starrer Kahaani 2

CCI junks complaint against makers of Vidya Balan starrer Kahaani 2

Quite a while back now we saw the release of the Vidya balan starrer Kahaani 2. While the film itself went on to do decently well at the box office, the makers of the film faced another issue, after a complaint had been filed against them for alleged unfair business practices. The complaint had been filed with the Competition Commission of India (CCI) by K Sera Sera Digital stating that the producers of Kahaani, Pen India and Boundscript Motion Pictures had refused to provide the movie to it for exhibition.

Now in its ruling the CCI dismissed the complaint against the producers of Vidya Balan-Arjun Rampal starrer Kahaani 2 stating that there is no substance in K Sera Sera's allegation that the producers refused to provide the movie due to an anti-competitive pact with UFO Moviez and Real Image Media. Further the regulator has concluded that there was no violation of Section 3 of the Competition Act that pertains to anti- competitive agreements.

This verdict comes after Pen India had submitted to the CCI copies of a news article about a complaint filed by producer Viacom18 against K Sera Sera in relation to online piracy of the movie Force 2 that was released in November 2016. In the nine-page order, the regulator cited the fact that K Sera Sera has neither refuted the allegations reported in the news article during the oral hearing nor presented any documents to disprove the same in their written submissions after the oral hearing.

While passing its verdict the Commission also observed that the decision of Pen India and Boundscript Motion Pictures had refused to provide the content of the movie Kahaani 2 to K Sera Sera the informant does not appear to be unreasonable and anti-competitive.
