  • Bigg Boss Tamil 2 takes the STRANGEST turn with Yashika Anand and Balaji’s eviction a week before finale
    by Bollywood Hungama News Network on September 24, 2018 at 2:55 pm

    While the fun at the Bigg Boss house in Hindi is just getting started, the Kamal Haasan hosted Bigg Boss Tamil 2 is coming to an end. The finale is hardly a week away with Riythvika, Janani, Aishwarya and Vijayalakshmi heading towards the climax. But what took the audiences by a shock was an eviction of not one but two contestants, a week before the finale. Well, an eviction during the weekend is the usual process of Bigg Boss but a double eviction took many by a surprise. What left the fans of Bigg Boss Tamil 2 shocked is also Yashika Anand getting evicted because she was expected to be one of the strongest contenders for the finale. Audiences were betting on her win during the finale but alas her journey has ended. On the other hand, Balaji, who has been the only man amongst the group of females currently, got evicted leaving it as an only women’s team contending for the final win! While Balaji got emotional as he left the house, Yashika too had some interesting words to speak about the show. One sentence of hers that really stood out was that the actress confessed that she has learnt 99 lessons in 99 days whilst in Bigg Boss house and the biggest thing that she understood about herself is that she can’t live without her parents. Here’s a glimpse of how Balaji spoke to the rest of the contestants from Bigg Boss 12:   View this post on Instagram   Gonna miss this fun moment's of balaji, Tq fr entertaing us by ur dalco night comedies Balaji ????@dhejuwe #biggbosstamil #bigbosstamizha #bigbosstamiltroll #BiggBoss2Tamil #bigbosstamilfans #BiggBossTamilSeason2 #BiggBossVote #bigbosstamiloffl #BiggBossTamil A post shared by Riythvika Army????????????

  • Vijay Anand: The man who rejected DDLJ for plagiarism
    by Ali Peter John on September 24, 2018 at 7:42 am

    He was a genius who made his debut as a screenplay writer when he was still in college (St. Xavier’s College in Mumbai) and was given his first break as a director by his elder brother, Dev Anand. He was Vijay Anand who went on to make masterpieces like Tere Ghar Ke Saamne, Guide, Jewel Thief, Johnny Mera Naam and Tere Mere Sapne among many others. He was recognized as a great director by the entire industry and was one of the ten best known directors of India. But, according to me, his life and career took a major crash when he fell for the teachings of Bhagwan Rajneesh (Osho). He turned into such an ardent believer that he took a break from directing films and took to preaching the teachings of the Bhagwan and converted his studio, Ketnav and his house into some kind of a “mandir” where hundreds of men, women and even children gathered and listened to him as he went deep into what he had learned from his Bhagwan. He was now known as Swami Vijay Anand Bharati and wore saffron robes with a mala with a pendant with a picture of his Bhagwan on it. People either believed that he had gone mad or that he had truly turned into a holy man. His fascination for his Bhagwan continued for a year or so till there were major differences between the Bhagwan and him and he renounced his Bhagwan and gave him up as a fraud and publicly declared that he had found the Bhagwan to be a multi-millionaire businessman who ran a business in the name of religion and threw away the saffron robes and put the mala into his commode and flushed it down. With his giving up the Bhagwan, there were others like Vinod Khanna, writers Kamlesh Pandey, Suraj Sanim and the daughters of Ashok Kumar, Preeti and Bharati who also fled from what they felt were the tentacles of the Bhagwan. But, the damage had already been done to the best of minds, led by Vijay Anand. He had somehow lost the touch of the genius he was as a director. He made bigger films like Ram Balram, Rajput and other films for Dev Anand like Main Tere Liye and Jaana Na Dil Se Door, but shockingly not one of these films had the touch of the genius of Vijay Anand and most of them failed at the box-office and his ego got the better of him and he demanded the same high price he used to when he was at the peak of his career which no distributor was now willing to pay for the films directed by him. Two of the films, Main Tere Liye and Jaana Na Dil Se Door are still to be released. He took to acting in films like Ghungroo Ki Awaaz and a TV serial called ‘Tehqiqat’ and made an impression, but he was not happy with the way work was being done. He finally decided to produce and direct his own film, Nyaymurthy Krishnamurthy which was supposed to be an expose of the judicial system in the country and he had even asked me to join him as one of his assistants as he found out that I knew a lot about the way the courts functioned from the lowest level to the highest, but just a week after announcing the film, Vijay Anand died of a cardiac arrest at the Ramkrishna Hospital in Khar, close to his house. A glorious chapter had come to an abrupt end when he was only sixty-three years old… The day he died , Dev Anand said he would not cry, but once he started crying, he did not stop crying for the next two days and nights, he perhaps realized the massive contribution Goldie (the name given to him by Dev because of his golden locks ) had made to his company, Navketan and his own image as a star… Goldie was known for his standing by the rules he had set for himself and no one, not even his mentor Dev Anand could make him change his mind. Dev had invited him to the first ever screening of his first film as a director, Prem Pujari. Goldie sat through the first half of the film and then bluntly told Dev that he had made a very bad film and that was the last time Dev called Goldie to any of the screenings of his films even though they were very fond of each other till the very end… Dilip Kumar who had directed his first film, Kalinga also invited Goldie and Subhash Ghai to the first screening of his film. Ghai vanished during the interval even though he was a great fan of the legend, but Goldie stayed on till the very end and when the legend asked him for his opinion, Goldie frankly told him that he had made a mess of a film and that if he gave him permission to set the film right, he would make a good and reasonable film out of it, but Dilip Kumar never sent for him or called him again. I was responsible for getting him to be the chairman of the jury of the Screen awards and he told me to warn the bosses of my company that he would strictly go by the rules and my bosses agreed without knowing what they were in for… The screenings for the jury were conducted at Goldie’s mini-theatre at Ketnav. Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge was the hot favourite for winning awards in all the categories. In fact, Jeetendra who was on the jury attended only the first meeting and said all his nominations were for DDLJ. It was time for the screening of the film and Goldie took the jury by shock when he asked for the screening to stop as he said it was a film that was directly lifted from a Hollywood film made forty years ago. He asked the jury for time and the next evening he screened an old Hollywood film called Love On The Orient Express and made the entire jury agree that the idea of DDLJ was plagiarized from the original and as the rules of the jury disqualified any film that was a copy, he as the chairman had decided to disqualify the film as an entry for the awards and the entire jury was one with him. DDLJ was out of the competition and the news somehow spread all over the industry which was taken by shock. Yash Chopra who was the producer of DDLJ was a dear friend of Goldie and decided to have a talk with him, but Goldie was adamant and Yash fell sick for three days, but Goldie stuck to his decision and the decision of his jury. During the same screenings, Goldie disqualified Aamir Khan’s Akele Hum Akele Tum which was a blatant copy of the Hollywood film, Kramer v/s Kramer which made Aamir lose faith in private awards and which made his cousin, director Mansoor Khan give up direction for good and made him settle down in Coonoor near Ooty from where he has never returned to making films again. Goldie’s war with the bosses who were giving away the awards had still not ended. He came to know that the bosses giving away the awards had decided to give away the Lifetime Achievement Award to Ismail Merchant who had made most of his films in Hollywood even though he was a classmate of Shashi Kapoor and Alyque Padamsee who was the CEO of the company. The bosses did everything possible to make Goldie change his mind, but he refused and even threatened the bosses that is they dared to announce the name of Ismail Merchant on the night of the awards, his entire jury would walk out of the awards ceremony in front of the audience and the TV cameras. The bosses had to surrender to him and cancelled the invitation to Merchant and had to give away the award to a maker of Goldie’s choice, the veteran and renowned filmmaker, Dr.B. R. Chopra. Goldie gave the bosses several sleepless nights and restless days… It was during this time that a leading TV channel which had just come up was planning to make a film on Gautam Buddha and Buddhism. I accompanied Kamlesh Pandey who was the creative head of the channel to the meeting with Goldie. Kamlesh told him that they had a script ready and Goldie asked him what he or his channel knew about Buddha and Buddhism. Kamlesh fumbled and then Goldie asked Kamlesh for the budget and when Kamlesh said it was thirty lacs, Goldie just got up from his chair and said, “you can never make this film or rather I will not be able to make the film on your conditions” That was the end of the meeting and the film on Buddha was never made again. The biggest controversy in Goldie’s life was when he was appointed the chairman of the CBFC. He accepted the post only on the condition that he would be given a free hand to conduct the proceedings at the CBFC. He did not accept any official accommodation and travelled to White House, the office of the CBFC in his own red Maruti van, driving himself. He had told me that he had handed over his recommendations to the I & B ministry and was waiting for its response. When the response came, the ministry had rejected all his suggestions. He got out of his office, got into his own Maruti and drove back home in Pali Hill and only told his wife Sushma that he had resigned and it did not come as a surprise or a shock to Sushma who was a victim to all his own whims and tantrums when it came to facing the truth. Goldie who had worked with the greatest stars had started a film with Anil Kapoor, Juhi Chawla and some other stars of the new generation, but he could not proceed after the first schedule and the film was scrapped. On the personal front, he had created a sensation when he married Sushma who was the daughter of his sister and not only the Anand family, but all those who believed in traditional values and customs could not take it easily at first, but they finally accepted it. Goldie has a son called Vaibhav who is trying to revive Ketnav, the banner of his father. Will he succeed in doing even half or less of what Vijay Anand who was and who will always be remembered as one of the greatest filmmakers of India and even the world? […]

  • FIRST LOOK: Aamir Khan as quirky FIRANGI in Thugs Of Hindostan is totally unmissable
    by Bollywood Hungama News Network on September 24, 2018 at 5:31 am

    Yash Raj Films' Thugs of Hindostan is the biggest visual spectacle hitting the big screen this Diwali. It boasts of a larger than life, never seen before action extravaganza and an incredible casting coup that brings together two of the biggest legends of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan on screen for the first time. In keeping with the innovative marketing move to introduce the primary characters of the film through motion posters, YRF today unveiled Aamir Khan's first look today and it looks pretty intriguing. His look was unveiled on Monday morning in just the way last ones were unveiled. His character name is Firangi who looks like a quirky character. He is wearing dhoti, kurta with a bright green jacket. Giving a salute in the motion poster, the long hair, shades with cowboy hat as he rides a horse is pretty interesting. With the motion poster, he wrote, "और इ हैँ हम, फिरंगी मल्लाह. हम से ज्यादा नेक इन्सान इस धरती पे कहीं नहीं मिलेगा आपको. सच्चाई तो हमरा दूसरा नाम है, और भरोसा हमरा काम. दादी कसम !!!" Earlier this week, the makers unveiled the fierce warrior look of Fatima Sana Shaikh who plays the role of Zafira in the film. Amitabh Bachchan’s first motion poster was unveiled in which the actor donned a pretty intriguing look as Khudabaksh. The villain John Clive played British actor Lloyd Owen made his way to Bollywood with his pretty intriguing look of a merciless ruler. Just a day ago, the leading lady Katrina Kaif was also introduced as Suraiyya who is the most gorgeous girl in British India who makes every man go weak in their knees. She is the best dancer in the country that people throng to watch. Thugs of Hindostan is the most anticipated film releasing this Diwali. The film is set to treat audiences across age groups with the biggest jaw-dropping action sequences seen by audiences on screen to date. With its edge-of-the-seat thrills and an epic adventure and war on the seas, the film is set to light up this Diwali. YRF’s mega action entertainer, Thugs of Hindostan, is set to release on November 8, a national holiday. You can never be prepared enough for this Thug.

  • Thugs Of Hindostan: Aamir Khan changes his stand on Diwali releases; is he eying Rs. 50 crore on Day 1?
    by Fenil Seta on September 24, 2018 at 5:11 am

    In recent times, we’ve seen how collections of films can go to an insane level if released on festivals or holidays. The classic and recent example is of the Akshay Kumar-starrer Gold and John Abraham-starrer Satyameva Jayate. These were the Independence Day releases of 2018 and opened at Rs. 25.25 crore and Rs. 19.50 crore respectively, sending shockwaves in the industry. Nobody expected these movies to open so well considering the clash and the star power. Both the film then fell down after the holiday period but the first day collections were enough to put them in the safe zone. Now, the festival of Diwali is less than two months away and the big release of that festival would be Thugs Of Hindostan. Starring Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh, it is expected to be a big-screen spectacle. A huge opening or rather the biggest opener is on the cards. But the trade had its doubts about that since the film initially was scheduled to release on the Diwali day itself. It is the day when majority of the audiences are busy with the pooja and indulging with family and relatives. Hence, it has been observed that the collections on the day of Diwali are usually dull. This is a rare festival day that faces such a phenomenon. During the rest of the festivals – be it Eid or Ramzan or Dussehra – the collections are usually higher than normal. But in case of Diwali, the day after the festival is a holiday and that’s when collections roar. Earlier, the filmmakers had no qualms of releasing their film on Diwali. After all, there was no pressure on creating box office records. But now, the scenario has changed. Also, now the filmmakers fear that if their film releases on Diwali day and garners negative word of mouth, then audiences might not come in hordes on the beneficial post-Diwali day. This was first observed in 2013 when Krrish 3 released on Friday November 1, with the Diwali falling on Sunday November 3. There were reports that the film has got thumbs down from audiences as the three-day collections were not that great. Fortunately for the makers, the film went on a high on Day 4, collecting Rs. 35.91 crore, which was the highest single-day figure ever for a Hindi film at that point. Krrish 3 managed to work but the other filmmakers were not ready to take the risk. Hence, the next two years – 2014 and 2015 – saw the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Happy New Year and Salman Khan-starrer Prem Ratan Dhan Payo respectively releasing on post-Diwali day. The move paid off as both films had record openings. Last year, two films released on Diwali – Aamir Khan’s home production Secret Superstar and Ajay Devgn-Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal Again. Interestingly, while Golmaal Again released on the day after Diwali, Secret Superstar chose to arrive on the festival of lights. This was possibly done since Secret Superstar was a smaller film and didn’t need to have a blockbuster opening. Golmaal Again was a big release and it required to make an impact on the first day. Hence, this arrangement looked fine. However, at an event to promote Secret Superstar, Aamir Khan revealed (see video below) that the reason he’s coming on the said day is because ‘Diwali ek shubh din maana jaata hai. So, we want to release on a day which is emotionally important to us.” The stage was hence set for Thugs Of Hindostan to hit theatres on Diwali. However, when the logo was unveiled last week, the makers announced that they would now arrive on the day after Diwali, Thursday November 8, instead on Diwali that fell on Wednesday November 7! This came as a surprise since just last year, Aamir Khan had made a contrary statement and that Thugs Of Hindostan was supposed to release on Diwali day all this while. However, it seems like the hunger to create an opening day record and thereby history tempted Aamir to change his stand. The buzz for Thugs Of Hindostan is so tremendous that even if it comes on a non-holiday, it can collect Rs. 40 crore plus on its first day. Now that it’s coming on post-Diwali day which is also a national holiday of sorts, and also the ticket rates would be inflated, sky would be the limit. Till date, the highest collection of a movie in a day is by Sanju when it netted Rs. 46.71 crore on its third day. Hence, one can expect Thugs Of Hindostan to cross this figure and even be the first film ever to hit the Rs. 50 crore mark in a day!Also Read: Aamir Khan – Amitabh Bachchan starrer Thugs Of Hindostan to release on November 8, 2018 […]

  • WATCH: Anil Kapoor's hilarious attempt to complete Varun Dhawan - Anushka Sharma's Sui Dhaaga challenge is unmissable
    by Bollywood Hungama News Network on September 24, 2018 at 4:57 am

    The celebrities always support fellow actors' films. Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma are currently busy with the hectic promotions of their film Sui Dhaaga – Made In India. A week ago, their challenge took the Internet by storm as they challenged their celebrity friends to take up the Sui Dhaaga challenge. Akshay Kumar, Aditya Roy Kapur, Alia Bhatt, Shah Rukh Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, Karan Johar, Salman Khan, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor are some of them who took the challenge. While some failed, some have successfully proven that they are good at it. Here’s how the challenge goes. The stars have to simply put the thread in the needle. It looks easy but it definitely isn’t as one has to complete this in just 10 seconds. Madhuri Dixit, on her Dance Deewane show, had challenged her Total Dhamaal co-star Anil Kapoor to attempt it. Anil, who is currently in Italy, shared a hilarious video on Sunday where he could not even go through the challenge even once. His epic fail is totally funny. He nominated Rajkummar Rao next. "Thanks for nominating me @madhuridixitnene ! After this epic fail of an attempt, I nominate @rajkummar_rao to try his hand at the #SuiDhagaChallenge. ‪All my love & luck to @varundvn @anushkasharma ! Can't wait to see u guys weave the beautiful story of ‪#SuiDhaaga!," he wrote along with the video.   View this post on Instagram   Haha! The handsome @anilskapoor takes the #SuiDhaagaChallenge.

  • Rakhi Sawant’s take on Bigg Boss 12: Jasleen Matharu will leave Anup Jalota; but Rakhi promises to be his next girlfriend (watch video)
    by Bollywood Hungama News Network on September 24, 2018 at 4:24 am

    Rakhi Sawant is an Instagram sensation, a motormouth who nobody can ignore. She is also an ex  Bigg Boss contestant among other things and is making no bones about the fact that she is enjoying Bigg Boss 12 to the core. Her Insta page is filled with reviews about the show and guess what her prediction is? Like everyone she has her money on Anup Jalota and Jasleen Matharu’s quirky / vichitra Jodi. For one, she is absolutely unabashed about the fact that some ‘handsome dude’ from the house will snatch Jasleen away from Jalota and well, he will be left with nothing but Lota, in her words of course. Rakhi says that she knows Jasleen since many years since she has been a part of her dad Kesar Matharu's production when she had just entered the industry. She said that Jasleen will be wooed by someone like Shivashish, Nirmal Singh, among others from the house. She further went on a rant accusing Anup of ‘going after every young girl’ and said that “Kuch toh kand kiya hoga ki uski teen biwiyaan bhag gai, ya kuch kand nahi kiya hoga.” Rakhi did not stop at this. She even offered to be his girlfriend after Jasleen leaves him. She said, “Anup ji don’t worry mai aapke saath kand karungi.” Watch this shocking video right here. We wonder what Anup Jalota has to say about this. Currently, in the house the Anup – Jasleen Jodi is rocking. Host Salman Khan and even Varun Dhawan, who came in for a day to promote Sui Dhaaga, was quite impressed with the way they are playing their game inside the house. Plus, they also have created a lot of buzz and are entertaining to the core. We hope the makers listen to Rakhi and fulfil her wish of going to Bigg Boss 12 house as a wildcard entry maybe!

  • Sisters Alia Bhatt and Pooja Bhatt open up about working with dad Mahesh Bhatt in Sadak 2
    by Bollywood Hungama News Network on September 24, 2018 at 4:23 am

    Earlier this week, it was finally confirmed that Mahesh Bhatt will be finally working with his youngest one, Alia Bhatt, in Sadak 2. Along with Alia, Sanjay Dutt, Aditya Roy Kapur, and Pooja Bhatt will be in the star cast. Interestingly, the official announcement was made on Mahesh Bhatt's 70th birthday. The film marks his return to direction after 19 years. But, also the sisters Alia Bhatt and Pooja Bhatt will work their dad Mahesh Bhatt. This will be the first in her career that Alia Bhatt will work in her father's film. It is a dream come true for the actress who always thought her father would never come out of the retirement. Speaking to a leading daily, she said that she has seen a difference in her relationship with Mahesh Bhatt in the last two years. Now that she is working, she finally understands why her father used to be so busy during their childhood. The switch in the relationship has been really amazing as he has helped her, gave time, nurtured and guided her. Talking about working with him in Sadak 2, Alia Bhatt revealed that she was a sobbing mess when he had narrated the script. She had said that if he did not direct the film, she would not do it. She was shaking by the end of the narration and said that it was the most creative narration she had ever heard. Alia even revealed Sanjay Dutt told that she has no idea what she has gotten herself into. During the picture shoot for the announcement, she finally got the glimpse of it. She thinks that Sadak 2 will be an emotional journey. Pooja Bhatt, on the other hand, has actually worked with father. Being the eldest one, she has seen a part of her father’s journey in the industry. She credits her father for being a guiding light. She said that being on sets with him was a learning experience where he would just convey that one needs to be nothing more than what they already are. She is super pumped to Alia Bhatt being directed by their father as she can't wait to see their relationship blossom further. Alia Bhatt is working for the first time with father Mahesh Bhatt and sister Pooja Bhatt. Sanjay Dutt, who is close friends with the Bhatts, is returning to the Bhatt camp after 23 years since he did Gumraah in 1993. Aditya Roy Kapur is also returning with Vishesh Films after his 2013 blockbuster Aashiqui 2 which put him on the map. Aditya Roy Kapur and Alia Bhatt will reportedly essay the role a young couple. Meanwhile, Sanjay Dutt is set to reprise his original role as Ravi. The original Sadak revolved around a taxi driver who falls in love with a woman forced into prostitution and battles with her pimp in order to free her.

  • Bigg Boss 12 Weekend Ka Vaar DAY 8: Salman Khan APOLOGISES to Anup Jalota; Urmila Vani & Somi Khan get into a BITTER spat over task assigned by Varun Dhawan
    by Bollywood Hungama News Network on September 24, 2018 at 3:49 am

    A week has completed since the start of Bigg Boss 12 and a lot has happened during this time in the glass walled house since then. As the inmates are getting to know each other, their equations have been changing and groups are being made inside the house. The Weekend Ka Vaar episode was kind of an eye opener to the inmates after Salman intervened in their fights and discussed who the stronger contestants were. Here are the highlights of Day 8 of Bigg Boss. 1: Varun Dhawan’s entry in house The Sui Dhaaga star entered the house and played games with the inmates. Everyone obviously was absolutely delighted to see him but his favourite is Anup Jalota and Jasleen Matharu for all the buzz they are providing inside and outside the house. Upon entering the house, he made everyone do a task where in the inmates were divided in two groups and both were asked to make cushions. Opposing teams had to judge the quality, that’s how winners were supposed to be decided. Varun left the house midway trusting the contestants to do the needful. Dipika Kakar feels Somi Khan has cheated. This leads to an argument but the Jodi team wins. 2: Salman Khan’s apology to Anup Jalota Back in the house Salman and Varun have banter about Sui Dhaaga and his shaadi! Well, the Bharat actor spoke to the contestants and apologised to Anup Jalota for sending him to torture room. It was proved that he was not the khalnayak of the house afterall. He asks inmates who was the weakest contestant of the week and Sreesanth voluntarily takes up his own name. He gets appreciated for his honesty and gets salute from Salman. 3: No eliminations Salman declares that there won’t be any elimination this week and that all jodis are safe. But we know how things escalate in Bigg Boss’s house. Who knows what next week will bring? 4: Sultani Akhada Salman Khan AKA on screen Sultan organised a Sultani Akhada and guess who the contestants were? Dipika Kakar – Srishty Rode versus the feisty Khan sisters Saba and Somi. It was Srishty and Dipika who won most votes and won! As a reward, they are now exempted from any housework till the next captain is selected. 5: Somi Khan and Urvashi Vani’s BITTER fight The episode ended with a BANG after a bitter fight broke out between Urvashi and Somi. Despite being from the same team, Urvashi blamed Somi for cheating in the pillow task, thus siding with Dipika. This led to a bad spat between the jodis. There is now a contention that the single group will take advantage of the fact that the jodis are so divided.

  • Ayushmann Khurrana learns 3 dialects for Badhaai Ho!
    by Bollywood Hungama News Network on September 23, 2018 at 7:56 am

    Ayushmann Khurrana, who will next be seen in Amit Ravindernath Sharma 's Badhaai Ho, learnt 3 dialects for the family comedy. While the actor picks up languages and accents easily, he also rehearsed with a special diction trainer and the film's writer Akshat Ghildial on the sets and also spent a lot of time with his Punjabi and Haryanvi friends. Says Ayushmann, "In this particular film, Nakul Kaushik, the character I am playing is a guy whose family belongs from Meerut. But, it is based in Delhi. While talking to my family I use Meeruthiya dialect, with friends I use Haryanvi accent and when I am at my work place I use the Urban accent which is a neutral dialect." The learning exercise was an enjoyable experience for the actor. He says, "I consider myself as a linguist and I love learning accents from different parts of the country. Having travelled across the lengths and breadth of the nation; I love grasping different dialects." Akshat Ghildial says, "Ayushmann picked up the accents and dialect really well. And it was a great experience working with him." Junglee Pictures presents Badhaai Ho in association with Chrome Pictures. Produced by Vineet Jain, Aleya Sen, Hemant Bhandari and Amit Ravindernath Sharma, the film is co-produced by Priti Shahani. The film releases 19th October 2018.
