Diwali spl: Happy New Year Cast Promotes Movie on Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC)

It will perhaps be one of the most star-studded episodes of "Kaun Banega Crorepati". The star cast of "Happy New Year", along with director Farah Khan, shot a fun-filled episode of the popular game show hosted by megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

Farah and her team - Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood and Vivaan Shah - visited the set of the show Friday. They were all dressed in black, and spread cheer with a lot of dance and fun, said a source from the KBC set.

"HNY On KBC. Amitabh uncle n such a good time was had by all!! Rotating hot seat for the 1st time," Farah posted on her Facebook and Twitter page along with a delightful group photograph.

The Big B, who turned 72 Saturday, also took to Twitter to describe the experience as "great fun".

SRK was a constant on the 'hot seat', while Deepika, Farah and Abhishek played in rotation along with him. Alas, before Boman, Vivaan and Sonu could reach the 'hot seat', the time was up, said the source.

The team also danced to their song "Indiawaale", lending a celebratory mood to the episode, which will be aired on the festival of Diwali Oct 23. The show is aired on Sony Entertainment Television.

"Happy New Year", one of the most awaited films of the year, is slated to release Oct 24.

Will Happy New Year prove to be biggest earner of 2014? Can it break the box office records of Kick, Singham Returns and Bang Bang?

Current Theega Postponed due to Cyclone HudHud | Exclusive Telugu Movie Pictures, News

Manchu Manoj Starrer Current Theega is creating lots of buzz in the internet circuit...Here are few exclusive stills and latest buzz about the upcoming Telugu comedy movie...

Current Theega, the Telugu remake of Tamil hit "Varutha Padatha Valibar Sangam" also stars Jagapathi Babu in an important role.

Sunny Leone  will be seen doing a cameo in the Tollywood movie!

Sunny Leone would be performing a special item number in Current Theega, which has raised the expectations of the fans.

Adult star and actress Sunny Leone's Telugu song "Devadas Breakup" has been made on a whopping budget of Rs.1.5 crore!!! Oh my my... but the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has awarded an "A" Certificate because of Sunny Leone's item song, which is fine with the Production house. If not for the song, the movie would have received a "U" certificate.

Current Theega has  Rakul Preet Singh as the lead in the movie, who was earlier seen in Loukyam movie alongside Gopichand. Did you like her performance in Loukyam?

Production team has confirmed that for the first time, almost a full song will be released in Telugu and Hindi before the release of the film.

The subtitle suggests that this movie would be a thriller filled with high voltage drama.

Directed by G. Nageshwar Reddy, the film was slated for Oct 17 release but now has been postponed due to cyclone HudHud. Here's what Manchu Manoj Tweeted:

Postponed due to the Cyclone .. Me my friends and fans r going to vizag to help as much as we can.. Details in some tym..

Why you should watch Haider? | Haider Movie Posters | Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor Pictures, Photos

For the first time Shahid Kapoor & Shraddha Kapoor would be seen romancing onscreen in the dark drama based on Shakespears famous play - "Hamlet".

Sharing with you few photos of Shraddha Kapoor & Shahid Kapoor from their upcoming Vishal Bhardwaj movie, Haider and why you should watch Haider?

Their chemistry in Haider is already being discussed by film pundits.

Whats your take on it - striking or boring?

Haider movie has been shot in beautiful locations of Kashmir. Audience can expect eye catching scenic beauty in the movie.

Very talented Tabu, would be seen essaying the character of Shahid Kapoor's step mother in Haider. Composed by Director Vishal Bhardawaj, Tabu would be seen testing her vocal chords by singing "Roshe Valle" song in the movie. Duo Vishal Tabu has worked together in Muqbool earlier.

Very gorgeous Shraddha Kapoor plays a reporter called Arshia in Haider.

Fingers crossed - will it be a hat trick of hits for Shraddha? As her earlier movies Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villain garnered lots of box office love.

Looks like Director Vishal Bhardawaj has a huge inclination for Shakespear's plays because his previous two movies Muqbool and Omkara were based on  popular Shakespear plays Macbeth and Othello respectively.

And he admitted this that he loves making dark love stories on Comedy Nights with Kapil Sharma TV show.

Haider star cast includes - Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, Tabu, Kay Kay Menon, Irrfan Khan, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Ashish Vidyarthi, Aamir Bashir and others.

As its evident from Haider movie posters, this love revenge saga releases on Thursday, 2nd October 2014 and has a 162 minutes run time.

What do you think - will Haider be
Super Hit

Made with a small budget of approx. ₹ 37 crores, we think it would be fairly easy for Haider to recover its cost.

Bang Bang Vs Haider: What’s your pick Hrithik Katrina or Shahid Shraddha?

One of the biggest weekends of the year, starting Oct 2, will see the release of two films - Hrithik Roshan's “Bang Bang!” and Shahid Kapoor's “Haider”, which are as different as chalk and cheese in terms of theme, budget, cast, and sensibilities. Hence, trade experts opine that it's “unfair” to compare the two.

“It's not a clash of the titans at all,” trade analyst Komal Nahta told IANS. “It is unfair to compare them...”

Cinematically speaking, it's true!

Not only the tone and tenor of the two films are diverse, their directors are poles apart in their sensibilities and approach while narrating a story.

In comparison to director Sidharth Anand's massy entertainers like “Salaam Namaste” and “Bachna Ae Haseeno”, Vishal Bhardwaj, known for his penchant for literature, especially his fascination for Shakespeare's classics, has scored big for convincingly adapting Macbeth as “Maqbool”, Othello as “Omkara” and now he has adapted Hamlet as “Haider”.

Bhardwaj too feels that the two films are put in the same bracket only because they are releasing on the same day, otherwise there is not a single common factor between them.

“'Bang Bang!' is said to be a Rs.180 crore film, ours is a Rs.24 crore film. Of course, they would need more money to break even, we would need lesser,” Bhardwaj told IANS.

“It's a very big weekend and it can accommodate two films and that's why we thought of releasing with 'Bang Bang!',” he added.

Shot in Abu Dhabi and India, fast-paced “Bang Bang!”, which has elements like car chase and shoot-outs, promises edge of the seat excitement, while “Haider”, set in the 1990s of Kashmir, is grim and gritty as it focuses on the human tragedy in the region.

When it comes to the lead actors of the two films, Hrithik's and Shahid's standing is also different in Bollywood boulevard.


Dismissing the comparisons, Rajesh Thadani said: “Hrithik is altogether in a different league, so let's not compare them. Their budgets and costing are also different, so there is no space for comparison. Also, 'Bang Bang!' will have more screens compared to 'Haider', so let's not compare,” he added.

If Bhardwaj has roped in Irrfan Khan and Tabu, to make the drama more intense...

 Anand relies on the likes of Danny Denzongpa and Javed Jaffrey to add entertaining elements.

Bollywood's reigning queen Katrina Kaif is the female lead in "Bang Bang" and rising star Shraddha Kapoor will be seen with Shahid in "Haider".

Set for the Thursday release, the two films with diverse themes will give a healthy choice to the viewers to make the best of their holiday.
