Dangal actor Zaira Wasim posts a cryptic apology on Facebook, deletes it later With the Aamir Khan starrer Dangal been declared a blockbuster, it has done miracles to everyone’s career. One such ‘star’ of the film happens to be the young Zaira Wasim, who portrayed the role of younger version of Geeta Phogat. Recently, Zaira Wasim took to the social media and posted a rather mysterious ‘open letter’ in which she has profusely apologised for her recent actions. Rumors have it that, it was Zaira Wasim’s recent meeting with Mehbooba Mufti (the Chief Minister of Jammu & Kashmir) which led to her being trolled online. The mysterious cryptic post on Zaira Wasim’s page read the following: “This is an open confession/apology. I know that many people have been offended and displeased by my recent actions or by the people I have recently met. I want to apologise to all those people who I've unintentionally hurt and I want them to know that I understand their sentiments behind it especially considering that what had happened over the past 6 months but I hope people can also understand there are certain circumstances that emerge which one cannot control and I hope people still remember that I'm a just a 16 year old girl and I hope you treat me accordingly. I'm sorry for what I did but it was not a deliberate decision and I really hope people can forgive me. There are few more things which are very important and I want to clear them as well. The first and foremost thing is that I am being projected as a role model for Kashmiri Youth. I want to make it very clear that I do not want anyone to follow in my footsteps or even consider me as a role model. I'm not proud of what I'm doing and I want everyone, especially the Youth to know that there are real role models out there whether they be in this time or in our history. To even consider me as a role model would be disgracing them and their disgrace would be OUR DISGRACE! I do not wish to start an argument here, this was a just a mere confession from my end which I really wanted people to know. May Allah bless us and guide us.” The latest update on the same is that, Zaira Wasim deleted the mysterious open letter from her social media account. This makes one wonder if she had posted the letter under pressure from certain elements or was her account hacked by someone. Watch this space for further updates.

Mon, 16 Jan 17, 10:49:49
Ranbir Kapoor to endorse Oppo Mobiles? Besides being hot and sexy, he also happens to be one of India’s most eligible bachelors. We are indeed talking about the one and only Ranbir Kapoor. Readers may know that, only recently, the suave actor had delivered a hit in the form of the breezy romantic musical film Ae Dil hai Mushkil, which was directed by none other than the master film maker Karan Johar. According to Bollywood Hungama’s reliable sources, Ranbir Kapoor is now all set to be the brand ambassador of the telecom major ‘Oppo Mobiles’. If this happens, then, Ranbir Kapoor will be replacing Hrithik Roshan, who is presently the ambassador of the telecom brand. The official announcement of the same is awaited.
Pahlaj Nihalani gets slammed for granting ‘A’ rating to La La Land

Pahlaj Nihalani gets slammed for granting ‘A’ rating to La La Land Damien Chazelle’s La La Land is not only one of the most acclaimed films of 2016; it has just walked away with 7 Golden Globe awards leaving us wondering why the film has been given an ‘Adults Only’ censor certificate in India. Once again the chairperson of the censor board Pahlaj Nihalani is in the eye of storm. However this time he is ready with all his facts and figures. Explains Nihalani, “We were ready to grant La La Land a ‘UA’ certificate, but with a few verbal cuts where the ‘F’ word and other expletives were used, and a shot of the middle finger being shown. However the film’s producers Viacom 18 begged off, explaining that they could not afford to make the cuts required, as the budget allocated for his film was small. So we had no choice but to grant the film an ‘A’ certificate.” Here it would be pertinent to say that the recent Hindi film Befikre not only had multiple kisses but also dialogues which referred to the heroine as a ‘slut’ and a ‘bitch’. It was granted a ‘UA’ certificate. Double standards? Says critic Raja Sen, “I think it's tragic that our censors evidently think great cinema is too masterful for children to watch. There is nothing remotely inappropriate about the glorious La La Land -- which is more than can be said about the CBFC.”
Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil beats Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees to the censors
Mon, 16 Jan 17, 05:55:21
Hrithik Roshan’s Kaabil beats Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees to the censors As Sanjay Gupta’s Kaabil and Rahul Dholakia’s Raees, both helmed by powerful star-producers Rakesh Roshan and Farhan Akhtar respectively, race to a January 25 release, Kaabil has beaten its formidable rival, at least as far as the completion of the film is concerned. While Kaabil was ready a month ago, Raees was submitted only this week for censor certification. Says a source from the CBFC, “Kaabil came to us three weeks ago and would’ve been viewed in the first week of January. But we had a huge backlog of films to be viewed. Kaabil had to wait in the queue. Not once were we pressurized to view Kaabil on priority by the producer (Rakesh Roshan).” Raees will be viewed later by the CBFC. “We are viewing Kaabil this week. Raees came to us only this week, so it will have to wait its turn.”
Karan Johar opens up about his fallout with Kareena Kapoor Khan
Mon, 16 Jan 17, 05:29:21
Karan Johar opens up about his fallout with Kareena Kapoor Khan Even before the official release, Karan Johar's autobiography An Unsuitable Boy has made headlines already. The first excerpt released earlier revealed about Karan Johar's sexuality and why wouldn't he talk about it publicly. In the second excerpt, he talked about his fallout with Kajol, his friend for over 25 years, after the whole show down between him and Ajay Devgn during the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Shivaay. In a newly released excerpt, Karan Johar reveals how he lost contact with Kareena Kapoor Khan for almost a year after the latter had demanded more money for a film. The excerpt reads, “My first problem was with Kareena. She asked for too much money and we had some kind of a fallout at that time. Mujhse Dosti Karoge! had just released, directed by Kunal Kohli. She said, ‘Aditya Chopra’s assistant Kunal Kohli has made this flop, so Karan Johar’s assistant, Nikhil Advani is not to be trusted either’. The weekend of Mujhse Dosti Karoge’s release, I offered her Kal Ho Naa Ho, and she asked for the same money that Shah Rukh Khan was getting. I said, ‘Sorry’. I was very hurt. I told my father, ‘Leave that negotiation room’ and I called her. She didn’t take my call, and I said, ‘We’re not taking her.’ And we signed Preity Zinta instead. Kareena and I didn’t speak to each other for almost a year. For a year, we looked through each other at parties. It was very idiotic. She was a kid; she’s a decade younger than me,” Karan has written in the book. Karan also talked about how Kareena was the one to take the first step during a very emotional time in his life after their fallout. He wrote, “We were releasing Kal Ho Naa Ho in November. We had shot the film in June, July, August and in September I had to shoot the songs, make the promos and so on. So, I had to head back, while my father continued the treatment in New York. That was the time Kareena Kapoor called me. It was August. We had not spoken for nine months. She called and said, ‘I heard about Yash uncle.’ She got really emotional on the phone, and she said, ‘I love you and I am so sorry I haven’t been in touch. Don’t worry.” Kareena Kapoor Khan and Karan Johar have collaborated on several films including Kabhi Khushi Khabhi Gham, Gori Tere Pyaar Mein, Bombay Talkies, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, We Are Family and Kurbaan.

Scoop: Salman Khan will play a double role guest-appearance in Judwaa 2 We all know that Salman Khan is all set make a guest appearance in Judwaa 2 in which Varun Dhawan will play the lead in a double role. What is not known is that Salman too will appear in a double role in Judwaa 2. Says a source very close to the development, “Salman will appear in Judwaa 2 as the original characters Raja and Prem that he played in Judwaa in 1997.This will be ‘Raja’ and ‘Prem’ 20 years later. Salman will be sharing screen space with Varun’s two characters. The sequence is being designed as a highlight in the film.” Producer Sajid Nadiadwala and director David Dhawan also intend to bring back Salman’s two Judwaa co-stars Karisma Kapoor and Rambha in the sequence. Interestingly this would be the third time producer Sajid Nadiadwala would get Salman to play a double role. After Judwaa in 1997 there were no double roles for Salman until 2014 when Sajid cast Salman as Devilal and his superhero avatar Devil in Kick. Now in Judwaa 2 Salman will again play a double role. Salman also played a double role in 2015 in Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Rattan Dhan Payo.
