'Salute' Starring SRK to Start Shooting from September!

February 20, 2018

Although Shah Rukh Khan is not in one of his best forms in the past few years, King Khan is still one of the busiest actors working in B Town today. Though he is currently working with Aanand L Rai for "ZERO", he's been approached by Siddharth Roy Kapoor from UTV Motion Pictures to star in the biopic of astronaut Rakesh Sharma, which is tentatively titled "Salute".

According to a recent report, sources say that he might start shooting for "Salute" from September of this year. Here's the statement, "SRK wants to start shooting in September and continue for two months before he starts promoting "ZERO", which releases on Christmas. After that, he will resume Salute's shoot from January 2019. The film is expected to release next year."

Interestingly, Aamir Khan was first approached for the biopic, but he had to decline because he is busy with "Thugs Of Hindostan" and he himself recommended Shah Rukh Khan’s name to them. WOW!

On the other side, "ZERO" is all set to hit the theatres on 21 December 2018 and will also star Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif.

Shah Rukh Khan REJECTED Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Movie Offer!?

February 17, 2018

Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been on a roll lately, his last controversial film "Padmaavat" is a major box-office success and the director is very keen to make a movie with SRK although his last three films starred Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. He even offered not one but two films to SRK but the actor refused them both. 

As reported by a leading daily, Shah Rukh Khan has turned down Bhansali's films. A source told the daily. "Shah Rukh is not doing Sanjay's film anymore. They had several meetings to discuss the scripts in hand last year, but nothing really worked out. SRK politely turned down the movies that were offered to him."

The source adds, "SLB and SRK are both extremely professional. They don't let work affect their personal equation. They are good friends and they remain so. They have promised to work together on something very soon."

Well, did SRK make a wise decision cause Bhansali is a celebrated director and doing a film with him is definitely a no-brainer. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below.

Kriti Sanon to Star as the Lead in 'Ek Villain 2'!?

February 17, 2018

Although the majority of the movie critics slammed "Ek Villain" with negative reviews, the movie is undeniably a box-office success and that's all that matters. Now, the makers of the film Balaji Motion Pictures are very keen to make a sequel with Sidharth Malhotra remaining as the male lead, but, we might not see Shraddha Kapoor coming back.

As per latest reports from the film city, the producers are very keen to cast the New Delhi bombshell Kriti Sanon as the female lead. This comes off as a surprise cause Kriti is relatively new to Bollywood and is yet to star in a major successful movie. 

Here's a statement from an anonymous source, "Though Kriti Sanon's "Raabta" didn't do anything great for her; the actress was appreciated for her work in "Bareilly Ki Barfi" that has turned the favor on her side. Same goes for Sidharth. His last few films like "Baar Baar Dekho" and "A Gentleman" tanked at the box-office but after Ittefaq, many filmmakers are said to have thought of approaching him. Also, Sidharth and Sanon have not been paired as yet so few of the makers are very keen on casting them together in a film."

Kriti is busy shooting for "Arjun Patiala" opposite Diljit Dosanjh and hopefully, we'll see her star in "Ek Villain 2".

Amy Jackson to Romance Salman Khan in 'Kick 2'!?

February 14, 2018

Earlier this month, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment announced their next project as "Kick 2", and disclosed Salman Khan’s name as the male lead. In "Kick (2014)" we saw the hot ravishing Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez flatter all of us with her sexy looks, but, it is reported that Jacqueline will not be seen in the sequel as her role ended in the first installment and this film will have a different plot.

Now, according to the flying rumors, we might see the dreamy British beauty Amy Jackson take the charge as the female lead from Jacky. Amy is known for her sensuous looks back in South Indian cinema and is also surprisingly the female lead in Rajnikanth's "2.0". Amy also has a poor track record in Bollywood with her previous films, "Singh is Bliing", "Freaky Ali" and "Ek Deewana Tha" failing at the box-office.

The English bombshell is currently busy shooting for the Amercian TV series "Supergirl" where she will be portraying the character of Saturn Girl who is the founding member of the Legion of Super-Heroes.

Jacqueline Fernandez Wraps Up 'Ek Do Teen' for 'Baaghi 2'!

February 12, 2018

Foxy Bollywood Diva Jacqueline Fernandez who will be seen recreating Madhuri Dixit’s superhit song 'Ek Do Teen' in Tiger Shroff's "Baaghi 2", has said the song is her tribute to the Bollywood’s dancing diva.

Asked if there was any pressure when she first heard that she was going to recreate Madhuri’s iconic song, Jacqueline said, “I think that was my first stress that how can we recreate something so iconic like ‘is it even possible’. It made a lot easier for me when I understood that it’s not possible, we are not trying to match up to what Madhuri Dixit and Saroj (Khan) Ji did.” “We are honestly here as big fans of their work and more than anything, this is honestly a tribute to the amazing, iconic number that they gave to us.”

 

The actor, who interacted with media after wrapping up the song on Saturday at Yash Raj Films studios, also said that she feels blessed to get an opportunity to dance on the foot-tapping number from the 1988 film "Tezaab" for "Baaghi 2".

"Baaghi 2" is the sequel to hit 2016 film "Baaghi" and will see Tiger Shroff and his sexy girlfriend Disha Patani in the lead roles. The trailer for the film is scheduled to release on 21st February and the movie itself will release on 30th March.

Hindi Medium 2 in Works Without Saba Qamar!

February 8, 2018

Hindi Medium was a massive hit in 2017 not only because of the music, comedy or performances but also for the storyline and the message it portrayed to the public about the Indian Educational System. We here at Just for Movie Freaks quoted Hindi Medium as the "Best Film of 2017" and it rightfully deserves all the accolades.

Producing a sequel to the film was a no-brainer and Producer Dinesh Vijan is reportedly already in works to bring back the franchise. 

A source stated, "The story flash-forwards by a decade so five-year-old Pia will be in her teens now, around 15-16 years. The story will be a fresh take on the Indian educational system with little reference to the original."

Sadly, the fiery Pakistani beauty Saba Qamar will not be a part of the sequel as she had told a Pakistani daily that she wishes to be a part of the sequel. She said, "After the massive success of Hindi Medium, the producers are all set for a sequel. I hope Irrfan and I get to work on the second installment of the blockbuster."
