Check out the week that was...
Pahlaj Nihalani objects to Jab Harry Met Sejal teasers on TV
The second mini trail of Shah Rukh Khan's Jab Harry Met Sejal released few days ago on the internet, where female lead Anushka Sharma uttered the word “intercourse” in one of the scenes, has been disapproved by the CBFC for airing on television.
After watching the promo, Nihalani told an English daily that they have granted a U/A certification to the trailer on condition of deletion of the intercourse dialogue. “They’re yet to come back to us on that. So in principle, the trailer has not been passed yet,” he said.
“They’ve uploaded the uncut trailer on YouTube. The CBFC cannot stop content on the internet. But we can and will stop the broadcast of the uncensored footage on television,” he added.
No points in guessing, Twitter had a ball at Pahlaj Nihalani's expense. Later in an interview to a TV channel, he said: “You take voting from the public and I will clear the word (intercourse) on the promo and the film also. I want 1 lakh votes and I want to see that India has changed and Indian families want their 12-year-old kids to understand the meaning of this word (intercourse).”
Salman Khan's Tubelight release
Salman Khan's much awaited Tubelight released and open to 50% occupancy. The film was unlike any other Salman Khan film and received mixed to positive reviews from the critics. BollywoodLife in its review of the film said, "Tubelight has a message that resonates with current times – keep the faith and believe in the good. Salman’s sincere and heartfelt performance in the film will definitely move you. Keep that box of tissues handy!"
Katrina doesn't want to work with Ranbir in future
Katrina Kaif recently mentioned how Jagga Jasoos is going to be her last film with ex boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor. Her exact words as quoted by Mid Day were, “It’s very difficult. People now have proof that he is a very trying and testing person. Ranbir has also gestured to me to not work on a film together. It will never happen again.”
Ranbir however denied any such thing and referring to his first FB live together, Ranbir said “I will be honest with you. We were at a Facebook chat and I cracked a joke on her and she cracked it back at me. It is not fair that the media made it out to be my joke and made it like something I said. I wouldn’t say that. So yes, it is not true. Katrina and I have amazing creative partnership. I love working with her. She has really allowed me to shine and she has very gracefully done that for me. She has increased my stardom. She was a much bigger star and she worked with me, like in Rajneeti. And we really needed her in this film. Dada was sure, he was like, “I want Katrina.” He wanted her energy. Katrina is funny, she is really funny when she is not trying. And to get that, I think Dada has been successful. It is an action role for her. She is doing buffoonery in the film without it looking like buffoonery. I was enjoying it, seeing her falling and getting up and stuff.”
Kareena Kapoor Khan to sign Karan Johar's Next
According to reports, KJo has roped in Bebo for his next film. It's tentatively a light, breezy, slice-of-life story where Kareena will play role that she has aced in her career - that of a zesty, talkative woman.
