Sushant Singh Rajput’s third big movie has released and we can only marvel at how well he has portrayed our very own Captain Cool! With 2 hits and 1 blockbuster Sushant Singh Rajput, the small screen’s big hero, has made it clear that he is in Bollywood to stay. With his sheer talent and determination this actor has made a smooth transition from the idiot box to the silver screen.
And why not? For decades now, television has been considered to be a stepping stone to Bollywood. But is that really so? Television today has changed widely reach wise as well as content wise. Today, content wise television is in its best era, where the audiences want to see something new. The actors are getting a chance to portray different types of characters which showcases their talent even better. Today we have TV actors who are glamorized as much as Bollywood stars. Whereas actors like Ram Kapoor, Sakshi Tanwar, Shweta Tiwari have a varied and all-inclusive fanbase. The change in content has also given us a whole lot heartthrobs of the younger generation in TV today like Karan Singh Grover, Gurmeet Chaudhary and Karan Kundra to name a few.
Earlier this week, Bollywood’s favourite bad boy Salman Khan got acquitted in 2 of his poaching cases by the Rajasthan High Court. Isn’t that surprising? Not!
Salman Khan along with Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and others were allegedly charged with killing 2 black bucks in 1998 while shooting for Hum Saath Saath Hain. They didn’t care much for beautiful, endangered animals back then, and it looks like they don’t care much for them now, either! So all that’s happened in the 18 years since the alleged incident is witnesses turning hostile, and evidence that has suddenly gone missing, resulting in the acquittal of the superstar. While the acquittal is sadly unsurprising, it leaves us with a lot of food for thought.
#Udta Shahid! Yes, finally Shahid Kapoor is flying high as the much discussed movie Udta Punjab is cleared and given ‘A’ certificate with only 1 cut (instead of 89 suggested by CFBC!)
However, now that the Bombay HC has finally certified the film, Shahid Kapoor admits, “I was worried if the film will release or not. I went into introspect that did I do anything wrong? I did this film because I was worried about my brothers, sisters, and I did it to create awareness amongst the youth to not do drugs. We always show beautiful things but if we keep doing that then who will talk about this issue? But now I am happy that there is a huge curiosity among the people for the film. I feel relieved that the High Court has passed this judgement.” We are relieved too Shahid!
Sounds funny, right? While Sanju baba is more known for his roles in action packed movies, Ranbir is loved as a romantic hero. So, when the 2 were to come together for a biopic on Sanjay Dutt’s life, we were all waiting with bated breath. However, earlier this week, the Shootout At Lokhandwala actor told Ranbir at a party that he needs to do more macho films to prepare for the biopic! Sigh! We can only hope this was meant in jest and no feelings get hurt!
