Bollywood actor Sidharth Malhotra, who was last seen in ‘Aiyaary’, will soon start work for his next, titled ‘Shotgun Shaadi’. The film is based on the issue of groom kidnapping in Bihar. There were rumours that he will be romancing his ‘Ek Villain’ co-star Shraddha Kapoor.
But as per rumours, It is not Shraddha but Parineeti Chopra who has bagged the role. (Also Read: Karan Johar to replace Sidharth Malhotra opposite Kareena Kapoor in his next?)
As reported by Deccan Chronicle, Shraddha Kapoor had apparently demanded changes in the script. The makers were not happy with her demands and have replaced the actress with Sidharth’s ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ co-star. (Also Read:
Though there has been no confirmation of the same by the makers, we would love to see Sidharth and Parineeti’s jodi on the big screen once again.
On the work front, Sidharth is working on Vikram Batra’s biopic. Whereas Parineeti has ‘Namastey England’, ‘Kesari’ and ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’.
Deepika Padukone to star in a big budget superhero film next?
Deepika Padukone is basking in the glory of her last release ‘Padmaavat’. The Diva received much love from fans and critics alike for her portrayal of Rani Padmavati in the period drama. Deepika was to start work on her next with Vishal Bhardwaj. The film that also starred Irrfan Khan was delayed due to Khan’s health condition.
Later the actress too was on a hiatus, recovering from the chronic back and neck pain she suffered while filming a song in ‘Padmaavat’. Rumours of her impending wedding to beau Ranveer Singh is also on an all time high. But it is now being reported by a leading magazine that the actress has finally signed her next.
As reported by Filmfare, “After going through several scripts, Deepika has finally locked one and this is a massive superhero film. Deepika will have various action scenes which fans haven’t seen her doing before. The untitled film will be produced by Fox Star and she’s quite excited about it already.” (Also Read: Deepika Padukone and sister Anisha’s GOOFY avatar will leave you in splits!)

We can truly imagine Deepika in the garb of a superhero.
EXCLUSIVE: Why it will be difficult for Kangana Ranaut to deliver with 'Manikarnika'!
Kangana Ranaut believes she is in a league of her own. While other heroines are still doing films with reigning superstars, Ms. Ranaut feels she doesn’t need any hero to back her up. Fair enough! But is her strategy working?
After a string of flops, the actress is all set to appear on celluloid as Jhansi Ki Rani in ‘Manikarnika’ that releases later this year. The shooting is complete and the post-production work on the film is currently underway. The film has been shot on a monumental canvas and has a lot of VFX involved.
A box office insider told us, “The makers have spent over Rs 80 crore on Manikarnika. It’s not even funny that they decided to spend so much money on Kangana. Even a film like ‘Simran’ made on 30-35 crore tanked without a trace. No matter how great the film is, it is almost impossible for the film to recover the money. It has to do a minimum Rs 150 crore business at the BO to break even.” (Also Read:In pics: Rajkummar and Kangana from the sets of ‘Mental Hai Kya’)
