Dutt biopic: Brace yourselves, is this when the teaser of Ranbir-starrer would hit the screens?


Much has been said about the biopic of Sanjay Dutt which stars Ranbir Kapoor in the titular role and Rajkumar Hirani handling the reigns. And after many delays, finally it has got a release date, which a very exhilarated Hirani took to Twitter to share, earlier this year.

And while the other details of this venture are hazy and under wraps, now the grapevine has finally brought some juice about this venture.

As per the sources, the movie, which is titled ‘Sanju’ will have its teaser releasing on April 24th!

Wow! That’s mighty soon and we already cannot wait for it.

The grapevine also suggests that the trailer of the movie may see the lights of the day on May 8th, which also marks the day when Sanjay Dutt made his rocking debut in the movie ‘Rocky’.

Our curiosity has already been fuelled by the images from the sets where Ranbir looked like a spitting image of Dutt. And if you thought that it is just the magic of the artisans who worked on his look, then don’t underestimate the lad. Ranbir’s dedication towards the role is visible from this video, wherein he walked at the Lokmat Awards, just like Dutt, replete with all the nuances of the actor.

We are bowled over and mesmerised. Let’s wait for the magic to unfold on April 24th.

Ali Abbas Zafar’s upcoming film, ‘Bharat’ is getting bigger by the day! The film stars Salman Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Disha Patani, Tabu, Sunil Grover and Shashank Arora. And now, there is news that Jackie Shroff will be joining this ensemble cast!

As per a report on Bollywood Hungama, Jackie will be seen essaying the role of Salman’s father in the film. A source was quoted by the website as, “The role of Salman’s father may not be a big one but it’s pivotal to the film and shapes Salman’s character and who he becomes later. It was Salman who wanted Jackie to play this powerful role.”

The source adds, “It starts in 1947 when the Partition takes place and thousands of families are separated and ends in 2000. The movie is the journey of a country and also a person, both of whom go by the name of Bharat.”

‘Bharat’ is an adaptation of the Korean film, and talking about same, the source further said, “‘Ode To My Father’ begins with the Hungnam Evacuation in 1950 when many families got separated in Korea and the father tells his son Yoon Deok-soo, ‘If I don’t come you are the head of the family that means whatever happens you put the family first. Now, that you are the head of the family, look after them well.’ Jackie plays Salman’s father and his words remain with the young boy (Salman) right till the end. They get separated during the Partition in Bharat but his father’s words and desire to reunite with him remains right till the end.”

‘Bharat’ has been modified according to the Indian audiences, but the source claims, “Like ‘Ode To My Father’, which spans over many years, ‘Bharat’s story will span over a period of 50 years and that’s why we will see Salman Khan sporting five different looks in the movie – as a young boy who witnesses the Partition to the current years when he is an old man. As the firstborn, Bharat becomes his family’s breadwinner from an early age, doing all manner of odd jobs to support the family.”

The film begins from a modern day elderly couple (Salman and Priyanka) reminiscing about their past and how they fell in love and got married. So we will get to see a very young Priyanka Chopra and Salman Khan and old ones too. There are flashbacks to various phases of time. Like Ode To My Father which depicted Korean history from the 1950s till the recent times, Bharat too will highlight various important events of Indian history,” added the source

Reportedly, the film will be shot at Mumbai, Delhi, Punjab, Abu Dhabi, Spain and Malta. ‘Bharat’ will release next year during Eid.

Madhuri Dixit and Sridevi were the top contenders in the 90’s and there were various reports floating in the media about their tiff. However, on the contrary, they both have always appreciated each other’s work.

Unfortunately, this year Sridevi passed away and Madhuri has wished her daughter, Jahnvi, all the luck.

Madhuri said, “I and Sridevi used to be busy working; we had so many shifts but we had great respect for each other.”

“I loved the work she has done. She has left her legacy behind not only through her movies but also her children… Janhvi is also into films and I am sure she will get a lot of love from all the people,” she added.

Janhvi has already gathered the love and wishes of her fans through her debut film ‘Dhadak’. ‘Dhadak’ which had opened really well on Friday is still going strong at the box office. The film ended the first weekend with the collection of approx Rs 33 crores.

Talking about Madhuri Dixit’s professional front, the actress will be seen in ‘Kalank’ along with Sanjay Dutt, Alia Bhatt, and Varun Dhawan. This role of Madhuri was first offered to Sridevi but her sudden demise made Madhuri bag this role in the film.
