Success changes one, they say. But sometimes, even success can't change a perception surrounding your name. Such is the case with this young actor, who has seriously climbed up the charts, delivering one success after the other. Yes, despite being hot property, he still isn't really considered one among the creme-de-la-creme from the Gen-Y brigade.
Yes, the success might have tasted sweet for this actor, who had worked for years to get it, but it seems he's not been able to reap the benefits of the same. We hear that the consistent box office success hit him hard in the head and he decided to hike his fee. Forget doubling, he has almost started charging 5 times his usual fees. We aren't saying he doesn't deserve it, given his hit run at the plexes. But unfortunately, producers still don't consider him in the A-league. Several filmmakers are shocked with the amount he's quoted them and although they were really keen on getting him on board, they have now decided against it and choose another young star, who's also turned out to be a heartthrob in the last few years.
Producers believe that this young turk has more potential and is way more bankable with his films, than our hero and the cherry on the cake is that our actor no.2 is charging half of what the other one has been quoting.
It's also a sorry state of affairs for our hero, because the other actor, despite being known to be a terrific performer as well, has not been able to deliver as many consecutive hits as him. But he's definitely delivered double of what his highest grossing film collected, with just one movie and that's what counts. Plus, he's also maintained his position and didn't decide to ask for an exorbitant amount to star in a film. A renowned producer who decided to choose someone else over our actor for his next production venture, also indirectly told his team to knock some sense as he feels that the actor will lose all big projects if he continues to throw tantrums with his pay, especially when the industry is going through one of itstoughest times. All in all, it seems that our hero's loss has turned out to be this hot actor's gain... At least for now!

They say, success and failure changes a person like no other. And when you are an actor, this adage seems to be even truer than ever. For example, remember we told you about this Bollywood hero who was a nobody a few years ago till he hit a jackpot with a romcom and how his attitude towards people around him took a 180 degree turn? It's the same with this actress, who has been instrumental in shouldering some of the better socially relevant women-centric projects in recent times.
The actress recently had a movie release and was in and around for promotions. But people around her noticed a huge change in her body language. Apparently, everyone noticed a slight arrogance in her demeanour. She doesn't treat her staff well, keeps screaming and shouting at them for the littlest things. This wasn't there even last year, when she delivered back to back successes but now, it's so in-your-face that a lot of bystanders noticed this happening right in front of them, some of them being journalists.
So what happened is like everyday, a day's plan was chalked out and sent to her team for approval and it was sent back with no changes. But while she arrived on time and started her set of interviews, things got a little delayed with breaks and other things happening in between. But she was clear: she wanted to leave at a particular time, but then, there were several reporters waiting for their interviews to even begin. While the team tried to make her understand the gravity of the situation, our pretty lady was adamant on making an exit. Eventually, she did leaving most of the journos infuriated! While the industry and the media isn't alien to this happening, we wonder how long this will last!
For the longest time, discussions about pay disparity and sexism in the industry have hit headlines. In fact, with women centric films now bringing in great numbers at the box office, many producers are willingly putting in revenue on such projects. One might think times are changing, but they clearly aren't. The lack of representation in terms of A-list heroes in such films is staggering as heroines continue to make do with smaller actors opposite them.
Such is the case with this duo. In fact, they have already been seen together in two films - one that was unconventional and brought rave reviews and saw good returns while another one clearly didn't make the cut at the ticket counters. Despite the movie being a damp squib, the male actor always maintained that the heroine is his 'favourite co-star'. He has expressed his affection towards her in several interviews as well.
Recently, the actress was signed on to for another woman centric political drama, to be bankrolled by a big banner. When the film was being planned with her, the makers went ahead and approached our Gen Y star to step in for the project. But he flatly refused. Why? Because he feels he's a bigger star than her today, after her last film failed to deliver and he gave a huge blockbuster last year. But he conveniently forgot that while the actress has gifted some terrific successes on her own accord, the male counterpart saw solo success after ages. He told the makers that he's not comfortable playing second fiddle to her, given the current scenario and his positioning. This news reached our pretty lady and someone tells us that she's miffed with her actor buddy for turning the movie down for this reason. Well, sometimes success can also cost you a few friends!
Guess - Alia and Shahid
Woman centric drama - Ma Anand Sheela biopic
Huge blockbuster last year- Kabir Singh
The much talked about friendship between these two top super stars has turned sour as they wage a cold and silent war against each other. The macho super star and the romantic super star have enjoyed an on-off friendship over the years. And their fights have been as publicised as their public patch-ups. While the two actors love to hate and love with equal strength, and their dosti was a high point in Bollywood, things turned sour all because of a relative of one of the super stars – someone whom he loves to promote even at the cost of his career.
The macho super star loves launching actors and actresses who don’t possess much talent and then promoting them when their careers are almost over. Few people from Bollywood want to cast them in their movies but they hang out with the macho super star hoping they will cast them in one of his or his buddy’s movies. One of his kith and kin wants to make it big ever since he entered Bollywood and he is extremely close to the male super star. His debut was a flop but the macho super star kept persisting and is even backing him in a few movies because he feels the newbie actor is talented.
Till the macho super star got hold of the remake rights of a regional movie which was a blockbuster. He felt the main protagonist’s role was the perfect launchpad for his kin (never mind if the kin has been launched and re-launched many times) as had wanted the romantic super star to play the cop in a remake because he wants to re-launch his own kin.
Now the macho super star has a big and generous heart and he expects everyone to have the same. The minute he required the remake rights he sent the director over to his BFF, the romantic super star (after calling and fixing up a meeting) to give a narration. He was keen that the romantic super star play one of the supporting roles in the remake. The role wasn’t big but the macho super star thought he would get support from his good friend as he is like a brother.
The romantic super star, who is currently taking it easy in his career and not in a rush to sign movies, heard out the director patiently. He is extremely fond of the macho super star but nobody wants to take unnecessary risks in their career. He turned it down gently and told the director that he couldn’t do the movie as he didn't like how the script and his role had shaped up. Right now, he does not want to do a supporting role as he’s already done a few cameos because of his friendship with other Bollywood people.

The best people to let out goss from a film set are the crew members. From spot boys to makeup artists, ADs to costume designers, they have in plenty. This news has come straight out of the horse's mouth. A young actress, who's been part of several films but hardly has anything credible to her credit, is quickly turning out to be quite a difficult person to deal with. Apparently, everyone on the sets of her last film were miffed with her regular tantrums and her demands.
Apparently, the actress, who's just four-films old, is quite a monster at work. She makes her team sweat it out, waiting outside her van in the sun for hours. She doesn't want anyone from her team to sit inside her van, come what may. Not just that, she has misbehaved with the hair and makeup team as well. Regular arguments, constant abuses being hurled at them, the team complained to the film's producer who are related to the film's male superstar. They have taken note of the behaviour and are shocked because the last film they did together, the actress hadn't shown her true colours yet.
But the producers too got a huge blow when this reached them. One of the days during the shoot, a few weeks earlier, when the producer and the male superstar were on set, shooting for it, they heard the actress screaming. When they enquired, they found out that she was shouting at her staff because she had ordered for a particular brand of makhana (the expensive one!) and the team couldn't get it for her. Reality is she wanted it in a hour's time and her team went helter skelter but couldn't find the makhana from the imported brand anywhere in the stores closeby. The producer, including the male star, was shocked at her behaviour but decided not to say a word since she only had a small part in this film and just a few more days were left. But the producer and the actor have vowed to never work with her. In fact, the superstar even suggested they could have made the film with another heroine, someone he already likes, and coincidentally has a special song in the same film. At least, the people working on the film would have been much happier!
Actress- Disha Patani
Male superstar- Salman
Another heroine with a song in the film- Jacqueline
Would it be wrong to say that more often than not, male actors, or should we say, our top heroes, call the shots on a film set. From deciding the cast to changing the screenplay, they have active involvement in almost every department of filmmaking. Such is the case with this superstar, who's known to be extremely nosy with his movies, too.
The superstar has delivered three back to back hits and is reigning high on the scoreboard of A-list heroes today. Now, he has been signed on as the lead for another big project - a remake of a very popular South film that hit the marquee last year itself. The studio that had bought the rights of the film were keen on making the film with another actor, also a superstar, who happens to be friends with our hero. But when the other actor couldn't accommodate this project and instead liked another project that the studio was putting together, the banner decided to approach our star.
He, although was keen on taking the film up anyway, told them that his schedules are completely blocked but he would place this in between, only on one condition. Well, he wants to ghost direct the remake, just like he did with his last release that turned out to be a gamechanger for him. He doesn't want this news to be out in the media and asked the studio to keep it all hush-hush. The studio agreed because they needed a star face for the project and is happy that the superstar immediately signed on the dotted line. But we don't know if the director of the original film, who's also mostly going to direct the remake, will be too happy with this clause! Uh oh!
Guess- Ajay Devgn
Last release - Tanhaji
A very popular South film that hit the marquee last year itself - Kaithi
Bollywood is known for some really weird demands that sometimes actors and filmmakers place to the team. But nothing can surprise you as much as this story that we recently heard. It's about this one-film old actor, who stunned everyone with his performance in his debut movie last year. The actor belongs to a filmy family and has a star mother who had become an overnight sensation after her first film, opposite a current superstar.
The actor is doing really well and has been signed on for bigger films. His first film was a rather unconventional actioner that had a more niche audience reach. His next is a fun commercial romcom and we hear that the makers were stunned by a certain clause in his contract. Apparently, he swears by his family pandit who not only decides what he should be wearing but also tells him when he should be signing his contracts, how much money he should be charging (because it has to add up to a certain figure).
But now, he has decided to put it as a clause in his contract. Yes, he talks to his pandit who also makes it a point to tell him that he can't wear certain colours throughout the filming of his projects. So there's a special point that his contract carries which mentions the colours of clothes he would be wearing during the shoot. Unbelievable, isn't it?
But it's not just this boy, there's also another '80s superstar who follows his family baba religiously We wonder if this will make a difference to the young actor's career though!
Abhimanyu , son of Bhagyashree
Who’s 80’s superstar ?
Bollywood stars are quite aware of their projects and also of their contemporaries projects. Often, when some stars sign on films, they take into consideration the profile of the filmmaker and the people associated with the project. However, in the case of this fairly popular actor, it seems that despite being careful of signing on projects with popular makers, his next is with a director whose recent film bombed at the box office. This popular actor has been delivering hits after hits and is now all set to work on a film in an unexplored genre.
Guess- Kartik Aryan,
Remake - Pati Patni aur Woh,
Director - Anees Bazmi,
Flop Film - Pagalpanti,
Next Film - Bhool Bhulaiya 2
At times, when things don’t always work out in favour of the Bollywood filmmakers and producers when their film hits the screens, the showdown between them might become ugly. Speaking of this, recently going by sources, filmmaker of a recent comedy multistarrer had an ugly tiff with his producer when the latter refused to clear his dues. The multistarrer had a huge star cast with some huge names and also all formulas for a hit were tried including the remake of old classic songs and comedy tadka. However, the film tanked at the box office. According to sources in the film trade, the director of the disastrous film apparently went to meet the producer to collect the rest of his pay.
However, the producer refused to give the remaining payment to the director saying that the film was a disaster and he has lost almost 40 crores due to the failed film. The filmmaker reportedly started abusing him in front of people that were present at the scene. But the producer kept calm. However, despite the ugly showdown, the producer of the comedy film refused the director the remaining payment. Now reportedly, the filmmaker has threatened the producer of the multistarrer that has flopped.
Those who know this filmmaker there was a similar episode with another producer where he is no longer welcome. We also hear that this filmmaker who charged Rs 15 crore for a film will have to take a salary cut. We also hear that the next film offer that he is getting now is just Rs 3 crore. Guess the director of the recent flopped comedy now has no choice but to take it.
Producer- Kumar Mangat
Director - Anees Bazmee
Film - Pagalpanti
Edit: the word *two is supposed to be *to in the title. Thanks, fingers. You made me look dumb in front The Internet. I'll never forgive you.
I just saw the movie with my family, and I have to say I really liked it! I know some of the reviews aren't great but I honestly never pay attention to them anyway because I like a lot of movies people think critically of (mainly because they don't take the time to ttynand understand somethingnsuper subtle but incredibly important). Anyway, I honestly liked the way things played out, thought it was really well done! I liked that everyone had a fleshed out backstory and really did happen to be a coincidence how they all ended up at the Hotel (except for Agent Broadneck and poor Miles). Anyway, does anyone have any theories as to who was on the film roll that was worth more than the money in the bag? I have mine, but I would love to hear yours!
It can be easily said that each Friday the film industry is waiting to not celebrate but demolish a big film that is releasing on a Friday and it happened to a big-ticket film that hit the screens recently. If sources are to be believed that two big names are involved in trolling of the film even before it hit the screens.
One happened to be someone who was kicked out and the other one has been arch-rival of the leading hero of the film and has a back story that continues to run despite the facade of all is well.
Now, this is what they did to the film, but now we hear that there was a lot of hullabaloo about the numbers with some leading lights are asking for authentic numbers to be displayed by trade pundits. We hear a big superstar did call the pundits who have refused to pay attention to him or get pressurized by him.
Wonder why that was needed the film is doing pretty well for itself and will do a business of Rs 200 crore any which way. Why become the fall guy?
Movie: Houseful 4
Trollers: Sajid Khan & Salman
Paramount's panel is over and fans finally got there look at the sonic movie , not one but two trailers were shown and fans thought's have been...positive I guess, so far on Twitter fans who was the footage have said what's in the trailer
The footage opened with Sonic zooming by Tom Wachowski, who clocks the blue speedster at around 700mph on his radar gun. From there, we learn a bit about the mythology of the movie: the rings that were all over the game serve as teleportation devices here. Sonic is in our world, asking Marsden to help him save his planet. Sonic is speeding down the highway listening to the song “Gangsta’s Paradise”.
Meanwhile, the evil Dr. Robotnik – played by Jim Carrey in a mustache – is also on the prowl. Carrey’s scenes are over the top. The look of Carrey’s character starts off odd, but slowly transforms into something similar to the way Robotnik looked in the games. Speaking of the games, the footage packed in several visual elements pulled right from them.
Also Robotnik’s robots in the movie look like Transformers.
Well....so much for this film being a big hit, let's face it this movie will be a box office flop when it comes out....Now my opinion, this sounds fine i guess...I'm gonna wait for the trailer to come out before I give my full on opinion, Oh well i guess we'll have to wait years later for Sega to make another sonic movie....let's hope it turns out like bumblebee.
Anyway let me know down below what you guys think of this.
