So what happened last week? We will remind you of that...
The last week was kinda mild compared to previous couple of weeks (You know...the Aamir Khan controversy and all). One of the major newsmakers of the week didn't happen in Bollywood actually; it happened in Chennai where Mother Nature has, for some reason, decided to unleash her fury in the form of incessant rains and floods. But the lesson we have to take from this tragedy is how the stars down South, like Siddharth, Dhanush etc came on streets to help the people. Kudos to these actors for stipping away their star-power and helping the common man in their struggle for survival. This shows that even in this era of intolerance, the hope for humanity still thrives...
Anyways, let's get to what happened in Bollywood last week!
Shah Rukh Khan proposes to Rekha...again!
Shah Rukh Khan knows how to charm a lady, especially if it is a diva like Rekha. Years ago, he had 'proposed' to her when she awarded him the Best Actor award. Now at another awards function held at the start of the week, SRK charmed Rekha once again when she came to present him another award. SRk said that whenever he gets an award from her, he proposes to her but fails to get a reply. Rekha 'threatens' him of telling Gauri about this, to which he says, "Sure. Both of you have to finalize your respective bedrooms, right?"
Tamasha joins 50 crore club
With the critical appreciation received for his performance in Tamasha, Ranbir Kapoor gets back into the good books of everyone who has written him off after the debacle of Besharam, Roy and Bombay Velvet. Though the film itself received polarized reaction, some liking it too much while others found it weird, Tamasha, also starring Deepika Padukone, also managed to garner impressive figures at the box office. The film has entered the 50 crore club, and steadily building up based on word of mouth publicity.
Dilwale song Janam Janam released
After Gerua and Manma Emotion Jaage, the makers of Dilwale released the third song of the film, Janam Janam. It is from this song that we get the iconic theme for Dilwale. The song picturised on Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol has the actors sporting two different looks. The song also has SRK and Kajol take on the famous Raj Kapoor and Nargis pose from Barsaat.
Hate Story 3 released
The third part of the sex n revenge drama franchise released this week to mixed to negative reviews. The film has Sharman Joshi and Karan Singh Grover giving each other icy glances, while Zareen Khan and Daisy Shah compete with each other as to who would shed clothes faster. The film is directed by Vishal Pandya. The film had earlier fallen in trouble with the Censor Board, no...not over the lovemaking scenes, but because of the words 'bastard', 'sambhog''and 'bhagwan'.
Peshwa descendants hold press conference against Bajirao Mastani
The descendants of Peshwa Bajirao and mastani held a press conference together where they spoke how 'pissed' off they were with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his inaccurate portrayal of Bajirao and Mastani in his film. They objected, but naturally to the Pinga song, and even the scene where Bajirao bathes Kashibai, saying that was their private moment. They also were not happy with Ranveer Singh being cast as Bajirao. They demanded that they be shown the film before the release, or else they will take the matter to the higher courts.
