Ranveer Singh looks like a raw and rugged warrior in the promos of Padmavati. It’s his most defining career choice till date. Playing Alauddin Khilji, the ruthless invader who left a trail of carnage everywhere he went, is contrary to everything he has done so far. No one knows how his fans, so much in love with his energiser bunny image, would take to this negative avatar. In today’s day and age, it becomes easy to forget that an actor is portraying a character and doesn’t actually share the beliefs of the persona he’s essaying. The troll army, sadly, gets on the hunt and one needs to have a teflon skin to shake off their barbs. Perhaps being an outsider eggs on Ranveer to do something different each time. His ads,…

SALIM KHAN TAKES OVER SALMAN’S WORK Things are changing fast and furious in Salman Khan’s camp. He first ousted his manager Reshma Shetty and handed over the task of managing his business to brother Sohail Khan. Now we hear that his CEO Amar Bhutala has left Salman Khan Films and moved to Fox Star Studios. So his dad Salim Khan has apparently taken over the reins of his production house.

Slowly, he began with theatre and modelling. Next destination was Mumbai. Lady Luck favoured him and he bagged a few more modelling assignments and TV shows in the dream city along with a Punjabi film titled Jindua. But a momentous moment was sharing screen space with his icon, Gurdas Maan, in a music video. That sure seems an auspicious beginning for a diehard fan!…

The big question is ‘What if Newton wins the Oscar?’ Of course, there are a thousand variables attached to that and a healthy dose of destiny too. But the idea that Newton has an outside chance of making India proud at the 2018 Oscars is terribly exciting. It’s a thought that puts a million-dollar smile on Anjali Patil’s face. She’s been around since 2011, having worked in films like Prakash Jha’s Chakravyuh and Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s Mirziya as well the subliminal Marathi feature The Silence. But no other movie has created as much buzz for Anjali as Newton. “Recently at the Mumbai airport, I was standing in the queue for immigration.

Tumhari Sulu may be adman Suresh Triveni’s directorial debut. But his connection with his leading lady, Vidya Balan goes back several years. A connect that began even before he became an adfilmmaker. “I’ve followed Vidya’s work even before Parineeta. I used to work for a shampoo brand in Chennai in 2001. Every time they would call for the audition tapes from Mumbai, one girl amidst everyone, would be prominent, Vidya Balan!” he recalls adding, “I’d say one day this girl will become huge!” In 2004, Suresh, who always wanted to make films, came to Mumbai when the producers of Bollywood Bosses asked him to join them as an associate director for the BBC TV show. “We were doing profiles of prominent filmmakers and one amongst them was Vidhu Vinod Chopra. I…
