  • Watch: Housefull 4 cast Riteish Deshmukh, Bobby Deol and Kriti Sanon discuss their box-office expectations
    by Bollywood Hungama News Network on October 23, 2019 at 3:15 pm

    The fourth installment of the Housefull series is all set to release on October 25. Ahead of the release of the film, in an exclusive conversation with Bollywood Hungama, the cast of Housefull 4 including Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Kriti Sanon, Bobby Deol, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde discuss the box-office expectations of the film. All of Akshay Kumar’s films that released this year have been a hit at the box-office. Riteish Deshmukh while talking about Akshay Kumar’s success at the box office said, “In his first film he hopped, in Mission Mangal he skipped and now in Housefull 4 he will jump. I think his career is doing great now.” On the other hand, Kriti Sanon said that she keeps her fingers crossed before the release of her films. “This should be the biggest I hope,” she said. When Bobby Deol was asked about box-office success, he had a hilarious response. He said, “With my career, you can see I have no understanding of the box-office.” Talking about what he expects from Housefull 4, Bobby said, “It is a great product and the actors share great chemistry. Housefull is all about having fun. Housefull 1,2,3 are all great films, with good comedy. My kids have watched it with me. My kids don't watch a lot of movies with me and I have never seen them enjoy any other movies as much. So I am hoping that they enjoy part 4 more than the other 3, which I wasn't a part of. The best things about Housefull 4 are the characters that have been there from the start and their chemistry. It’s a fact. Riteish and Akshay's chemistry is magic.” Watch the entire video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VOz1phTJxw&t=266s Meanwhile, Housefull 4 is directed by Farhad Samji and is slated to release this Diwali.

  • “I was a 21 year old boy, and they put me in the anda cell where they kept Kasab” - Sooraj Pancholi
    by Bollywood Hungama News Network on October 23, 2019 at 1:30 pm

    Over the past few years, since 2013 Sooraj Pancholi who made his debut with Hero has been facing an uphill task. Especially with the ongoing case that was filed against him by the late actress Jiah Khan’s mother Rabia Khan. In fact, Sooraj is currently gearing up for his next release Satellite Shankar, but the young actor, is still weighed down with the never ending media trail. However, though Sooraj has for the past seven years held his silence, in a freewheeling conversation with Bollywood Hungama, Sooraj Pancholi finally relented, opening up about what these past years have been like for him, and his family. “My trailer launch should have been a happy day for me where I talk about my future; I talk about the film, about what we have gone through shooting the film. But the reality is that I have suffered for a long time, and it has been a really tough journey; not only for me, but a tougher journey for my mother my father, toughest for my sister, because of social media where everyone has their own judgement. So it is tougher for my mom and sister to read those things about me, and it is very painful to see them in tears every time someone talks bad about me. I just want this to end, whether good or bad whatever people think about me I don’t know. Seven - eight years of my like is a lot of time, and it has just been a big suffering for me. Whatever happened was very sad, and my sympathies go to her family, but people don’t understand that I at that point was the closest to her and that I was the support to her, and I was in love with her, and I lost somebody. And you guys put me into jail just because I was her boyfriend, on the basis of some text messages that every boyfriend and girlfriend have. The last messages if you see, of our chat, it is her who is saying sorry to me, it is her who is saying I am sorry that I have done this, it is me who is saying that you have made my life into a prison, can you please leave me by myself for some time. I am the one saying that to her, so I don’t know why people though that I was the one torturing her. Two days before her last, we had met, and her mother was not very happy that she was dating me. Her mother had to say that she was not concentrating on her work and I don’t want you guys to be together because you are very young for her. I was young, I was 21 and she was 27 at that point, so I was younger than her. Her mother asked me not to speak to her and not to be around her anymore, so I respected that fact and keeping a rock on my heart I took a step back, since I did not want to come between her mother and her, since they are a family. they were having issues for a long time, even before I came into the picture. So I never wanted to be the person who is creating problems in the family, so I told Nafisa, I can’t really do this, and she got really upset and insecure about me not talking to her as much, because her mother had asked me to. we met two days earlier and spoke about putting a hold on this relationship and she was very upset with her work that was not taking off, she had not done a film for a couple of years, and when we met she said she was going back to London, and looking to leave the industry. my answer to that was then I don’t think you and me should be in touch because it was only going to be hurtful for the both us to try and make this work when you are not going to be in the same country. She was fine with that, we had dinner, things were normal. And then the next day her crying and everything started again, saying that she wanted to see me and that she has had a fight with her family and that she wants to discuss a few things with me. I put my foot down, that I don’t want to meet you. I have had enough of this, I want to concentrate on my career, I want to go ahead, and she really wanted to meet me, since she had some issues in her house that day, since her mother was in town. For those who do not know, Nafisa lived here, and her family lived in London, her mother and step sister, there were a lot of complication within the family which I got to know much later. But I am not that kind of person who, because someone is depressed or going through something would just leave her. I stepped back because her mother asked me to. And I respected her mother and that’s why I did. She wanted to meet me on the last day, and she said she had a fight with her family, her mother and she was upset. I just said I could not do this anymore and that I could not take this crying and depression coming from you every day, I just can’t do it. The police are aware of the fight she had with her mother on that day, the CBI knows as well. People have, even I have sometimes have arguments with my family too, but it is normal. But I just could not be around that depressed situation; I wanted a break for myself as I was really preparing for my first film Hero. I had signed the film then; I had pressure on me to be in a certain way because of the competition and such. And we had a small argument on the phone and the next thing I know is that she is no more. But our fight was a normal argument, it was not even a fight it was a basic normal argument. That was it. And in today’s day and age everybody fights. I fight worse with my sister than I have with her. I only knew Nafisa for 5 months. It has been my shortest relationship; all my other relationships have been 5, 4 or three years long. You can ask any of my ex-girlfriends if I have ever been abusive, physical or whatever. I am not the best person ever but I am not what people say I am. It has been a media trial for me and it has been very unfair. Anything has been written and said about me, and when people ask me why have I not spoken out, well guess what I haven’t because of respect for the person that has gone. There are such dirty details I know about her personal life before I knew her, stories that I heard and stories that I know, stories that the police and the CBI also know, but I cannot say it out loud. It is not right. I loved her and I can’t talk bad about her or her family. So that is why I never did, but now if I don’t do it, who is going to speak for me? The so called suicide note, it was found 7 days after her death. There are mixed reports about the forensics on the note, but besides that, even if it was her handwriting, it does not mention my name anywhere. And why was it found 7 days after the police panchnama, the police went and did their investigation in the house, they were there for two days and then her mom comes with this letter suddenly after 7 days and she does not give it to the police, she gives it to the media. If I want justice I will go to the police first and not the media. But she have given a printed/ scanned copy first to the media, and then she had to give it to the police because they asked for it. It didn’t mention my name, it didn’t mention Nafisa's name. Why did they arrest me? Because I was her boyfriend, because I had an argument with her, it is so unfair. I was a 21 year old boy, and they put me in police custody for 4-5 days, didn’t let me meet my family, nothing and then I was sent to jail for almost a month at Arthur road jail, in the anda cell where they put Kasab. That is where they put me. I have been through so much, but no one sees this, why because I was her boyfriend. What wrong have I done in this relationship? Whatever is written about me in the media today, even a big newspaper had done a dirty front article about me. But none of it is true. It is all coming from her family; it is all paid interviews, paid media. I understand that you have lost your daughter, and really my sympathies go with you. But this is not how you put someone down. Nafisa had a history of depression since years; there are cases against her previous boyfriends that you can find online. Every allegation they made against me, every single one made against me, abatement, torture, murder, none of them have been proved. And the police and the CBI say that I have no role to play in it. So why is my trial not starting. It took 4 years for my trial to start, to come to that point, because there were 2 police investigations, and they could not get anything. There was a CBI investigation and they could not get anything CBI said, that we did not get anything, maybe Sooraj is lying. That is the easiest thing and the safest thing they could say, because I did not lie about anything, and they had to give some answer. How is it possible that a 21 year old boy sitting with the CBI day and night, I used to drive 2-3 hours to get there at 8 in the morning and they would leave me at 1 or 2 in the night, questioning me the same thing again. And this was happening while I was preparing for my first film Hero. After doing that I used to go home read my script and do what I had to. This is what all I was going through. The reason my trial is not starting is because the complainant is not coming to court, I am the only single person in the history of India that has appealed in court to expedite the trial. The case started when I had just completed 21 years of age, my 29th birthday is lesser than a month away. You have taken away my 20s, my peak of my life, it is really not fair. I do want to cry, but I will not, I have to speak out because it has been hard on my family, it has been hard on my sister, and it has been hard going to court every time. I stand in court every time, but the complainants are not there. They put the case on me. If you want justice, you want the truth, then why don’t you come to court. It is because you have to stand in the witness box, and you are scared to get cross questioned, and that is why you are not coming. The Indian authorities cannot do anything about it because you have a British passport that is not fair. If that was not a media case, and instead was an India based case with two Indian citizens, this case would have been over and out in the first few months. It is still a media trial because, people write 'Jiah Khan murder case?', first of all the case in a 306, it is abatement of suicide case, not a murder case. That is a completely different charge. The police and CBI have said that it is not a murder, how many times do they have to say it. Composure is now when I am out, when I am in front of 4 cameras, it is composed. But I have to go back home and try and sleep every night, knowing the fact that this is what people think about me. I have a sleep disorder, I have depression, I have a lot that I am going through, I don’t discuss it with my family, because I know that it will hurt them even more. Sometimes I don’t get sleep till 6 in the morning, my mind is constantly running, because no matter how much we think we are not guilty, or that God is there for you, or your family is there for you, it hits you. Because people talk such rubbish about you, for what reason, without knowing anything they made me the villain, the bad person, on the basis of unprofessional journalism. Just because my father has a certain image, that he has made mistakes in his life, I am not happy with them, nor is he or my mother, but he has done it, and he has been open about it. But the media gives it to me just because I am my father's son. It is not fair. I have seen this industry from every angle; it only depends on perception of what other people think. You go to a studio, they first find out what people are saying about a particular person. After than they give you a film, they don’t give you a film on merits of your job. I won 95% of the debutant awards, but what do I do with those awards if people are not accepting you. I am not the best but I am not a bad actor, I would have done more films if not for this case. I am decently talented. I just want people to understand that this is my life, me being an actor, me being a public figure is not your life, this is my career, and this is what I am going to build my family on in the future. This is what I am going to give back to my parents with too. My father was a star back in his time, but not anymore, and I will have to support them. My father has done really well in his time. At that time the highest he would get paid was Rs. 50 lakhs. But today that same amount is nothing, so it is not that I come from a super-rich family. I do not come from a super-rich family. Yes I have been blessed with parents who have been blessed by their work. But I am not a superstar's son that you treat me like a star kid. I have to go through a lot of struggles; I have to take care of my family. My mother is almost 60 years old, and they are not really working actors. People don’t understand these things, and this is my life. Who is going to be giving it back to me? He comes from a powerful family, must be dominating the case. But if my father had connections he would have been a working superstar today, but he is clearly not. My father has this personality of a 6foot guy, good looking with green eyes, but he had his time. Now it is my time and these guys are not letting me shine. I was doing a football film called Fireball with Excel, I trained for three to four months, we were about to start the film, and then the entire stupid allegations came up, and the producers backed out. I don’t blame them, they were giving me a chance after knowing, there is a lot of money involved and I do not blame them. After that I tried to do other films, but every time I announced a film, there would be media articles about the case, and these were backed by the complainants. If you have the courage to speak to the media behind closed doors, why don’t you have the courage to come to court and fight the battle truthfully? I would love to speak to Rabia, because I do not know what I have done. She knows for a fact that I was the only good thing in Nafisa's life. I was the only happiness in her life, because she was super depressed. And not only me, the police records, the CBI will also say this to you. If you want the truth, if you want justice come to court. If you want to put me behind bars, come to court. Talking to the media and talking bad about me or the family will not get you justice. I am ready to face any charge, they want, but start the trial, at least come to court. I have never told the court that I will not cooperate, my entire 20s I have been going to court. An accused does not need to go, since they have no role to play, but I still go. And the complaints catch a flight and go to London 1 or 2 days before the date. People think I am the bad guy, but look at it. I am going to court because I want this to end peacefully, and with the truth. Every time I have a trial, there are people from the crime department of journalism in court, and there have been times when the judge has asked why are the complainants not coming to court, and she has shouted at the prosecutors and lawyers, but when I ask the journalists to cover this they say, 'No Sooraj there is nothing negative about you, so it will not get traction.' is my life traction for you. Anything that is negative they want to write, anything that is in my favour they do not want to write, maybe because I don’t have the funding for it I guess. I am very scared about what I say, to who I say, it is trauma to me. I don’t answer people's calls in the night, I am scare of being even a little bit rude to people. Because I am unsure what the consequences are going to be. I was blamed for a small argument I had, so it is like trauma to me in my sub conscious mind. As for relationships, we have not sat down at the dinner table and laughed openly in the past 7-8 years. It is because we have all been through so much pain. Every time my mother sees me, in her smile I know she has a lot of pain, but she does not show it. I know my mother's eyes; I know what she is going through.

  • Is Deepika Padukone Ranveer Singh's favourite candy? It seems so!
    by Bollywood Hungama News Network on October 23, 2019 at 1:21 pm

    Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh together are a true couple goal, we tell you. After all these years if dating and nearly a year into their marriage, you can still trust their PDA to break the internet. Of late, Deepika has resorted to memes to give the PDA a funny twist. We earlier showed how she shared a meme, comparing Ranveer to a trashcan...LOL! The latest one has a JIO MAMI connection to it. Deepika turned up at the JIO MAMI opening festival, dressed in a baby pink gown with tinges of black. Actresses triggering the meme game with their style statement has become a regular thing now. The best one must have struck Deepika's eyes, and she shared it on her Instagram story. In it, Ranveer holds candy floss, which has Deepika placed on top. LOL! After wrapping the shoot of '83, Ranveer got back to India about two months back. The film will also feature Deepika in a brief role, as legendary cricketer Kapil Dev's (played by Ranveer) wife Romi Dev. Deepika, apart from that, has also finished filming for Meghna Gulzar's Chhapaak, based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.

  • What! Salman Khan called off his marriage five-six days before the wedding date, reveals Sajid Nadiadwala
    by Bollywood Hungama News Network on October 23, 2019 at 1:14 pm

    Who's the most eligible bachelor 0f Bollywood? Salman Khan, of course. There's no point even popping the 'when are you getting married' question before him anymore, we've done it so many times! Salman, who has had his share of relationships, isn't probably not settling down anytime soon. But there was this one time when he was almost about to tie the knot. The secret was spilled by Housefull 4 producer Sajid Nadiadwala, on a recent episode of The Kapil Sharma Show. “Salman had gotten an attack in 1999 of getting married. He already had a girl, I had to find one for myself. Salman’s father’s birthday is on November 18, so we had decided to tie the knot on the same date," he said. Sajid didn't divulge who the bride-to-be was, but we assume it was Salman's former girlfriend Sangeeta Bijlani. As per reports, the two were really close to marrying each other but it was suddenly called off. “Everything was set, even cards were sent out. Just six or five days before the due date, he said ‘I don’t have the mood’. After changing his mind, he came on stage during my marriage and whispered in my ears. 'There is a car outside, take it and run away," Sajid added. For anyone who doesn't remember, Salman once called marriage a 'waste of money'. We can't blame him for asking Sajid to run away. He was probably just trying to save his friend's money...LOL!

The actor underwent a lot of physical training for the role since he had to also shoot for flashback scenes. Salman Khan said, "I am very excited for this film to release. I am waiting to see how the fans will appreciate the film. We have done a lot of 'mehnat'. I have worked much harder for this one that I did in Tiger Zinda Hai. We have taken some tough creative calls, and over all a lot of effort has gone in this one." This film marks the reunion of Wanted duo Salman and Prabhu Dheva. Speaking of the choreographer-turned-filmmaker, Salman added, “Prabhu Dheva is very chilled out, but he is very particular, he makes me take many takes." He also said that the film will be a pan India film. Salman Khan revealed, "We have had South films (releasing) and they have done well here. Now, I think it is our time. The film is a proper entertainer; people should like it there too." It is known that the previous films have had peppy numbers like ‘Munni Badnaam Hui’ and ‘Fevicol’. This time around, they will have ‘Munna Badnaam Hua’ which was Salman’s idea. Salman Khan shared, "We have 'Munna Badnam Hua' this time. It is a different song; it is not the same song as 'Munni Badnaam Hui'". This has been a very successful franchise and Salman is aware that not many franchises have been successful in the past. “Not all film franchises work well. We have worked very hard on this one. The film is not only an action film, it is a total entertainer,” he added. Dabangg 3 is directed by Prabhu Dheva and produced by Salma Khan, Arbaaz Khan and Nikhil Dwivedi under the banner of Salman Khan Films and is slated to release on December 20, this year.

  • Listen up! Shahid Kapoor has relationship advice for Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor
    by Bollywood Hungama News Network on October 23, 2019 at 10:29 am

    It's been over a year since Ishaan Khatter and Janhvi Kapoor's Dhadak hit the screens. For both, it was their first step into the big world of Bollywood, though Ishaan made his debut in feature films with Majid Majidi's Beyond The Clouds. Now, apart from their on-screen chemistry, Ishaan and Janhvi's rumoured romantic stint also hit many headlines. Neither Ishaan nor Janhvi has ever acknowledged their relationship. They maintain that they're great friends, and often hang out together. This doesn't stop the gossip mongers from doing their job, though. Recently, in a chat show, Ishaan's elder brother Shahid Kapoor was asked what relationship advice would he want to give to the younger ones. Shahid answered that they should always balance work and personal life. That's important, isn't it? Ishaan and Janhvi, hope you guys are listening. On the work front, they both are keeping busy. Ishaan is now filming for Ali Abbas Zafar's Khaali Peeli, with Ananya Panday. Janhvi, on the other hand, is probably the busiest name in Bollywood right now, with as many as six films in her kitty. She is into the last schedule of IAF pilot Gunjan Saxena's biopic Kargil Girl and is simultaneously shooting for Dostana 2. In a few months, Karan Johar's Takht, featuring her in a key role, will also roll.  

  • Housefull 4: When Riteish Deshmukh took the Bala challenge in the middle of the road!
    by Bollywood Hungama News Network on October 23, 2019 at 9:27 am

    Chances are that you've already watched Ranveer Singh, Ayushmann Khurrana and others shaking a leg to Housefull 4's ‘Bala’. The fever simply doesn't seem to die down. Like you and me, the Housefull gang themselves are equally obsessed with the track and it looks like they aren't sparing any chance to do the ‘Bala’ hook-step. This time around, Riteish Deshmukh decided to jump out of the car and dance in the middle of the street! Of course, this was triggered by the mastermind Akshay Kumar, who challenged Riteish to do so. In a video shared on Twitter, we see Riteish getting down from a car (which is stuck in the infamous Mumbai traffic) and breaking into dancing. Well! Aaayeeee!!!! Bala bala bala bala https://t.co/z8kPKeJYzr — Riteish Deshmukh (@Riteishd) October 23, 2019 The fourth edition of the Housefull franchise is going to be a reincarnation comedy, with a strong dose of confusion, and a stronger dose of laughter. Along with lead actors Akshay, Riteish and Bobby Deol reincarnated, their leading ladies Kriti Sanono, Kriti Kharbanda and Pooja Hegde are also reborn, but sans any memory of the past life. This certainly results in a laugh riot. Directed by Farhad Samji, the film will release on 25th October.

  • Soni Razdan opens up after Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor's fake wedding card goes viral
    by Bollywood Hungama News Network on October 23, 2019 at 7:49 am

    We all love the gorgeous pairing that Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt make for. We'd love it if they decide to take their relationship a step ahead, and well, they are often asked if they're popping the rings anytime soon. But recently, it went a bit too far when a fake wedding card of the two, mentioning their 'sagan' or engagement ceremony went viral, leading many to believe that Alia and Ranbir were actually officially getting engaged. In a recent interview, Alia's mother Soni Razdan has not only dismissed it, but has also asked the press to not pay attention to such miscreants. Her uncle Mukesj Bhatt added that people from across the country called him to inquire after they came across the fake card. He added that Alia was presently shooting for Sadak 2 in Ooty, and such rumours are just sad. So, you know, no D-day for Ranbir and Alia, at least for now. The viral card also featured a number of mistakes. Alia's name was spelled as 'Aliya' and instead of her father Mahesh Bhatt; Mukesh Bhatt's name was mentioned in the card. Didn't take us much time to figure that there was no truth to it. But for all those who fell for it, you got to wait before it actually happens!
