The rumor mills are buzzing high that Deepika Padukone may get engaged with Ranveer Singh in Sri Lanka on her 32nd birthday. According to the india.com, the engagement might take place on January 5, which is also the birthday of the actress. Both actors were dating for last five years. Deepika will celebrate her birthday with Ranveer Singh and will return to India only after it.
Ranveer Singh was seen at an airport in Sri Lanka last week on Thursday along with Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani. Deepika also flew to Sri Lanka to spend time with her rumored boyfriend Ranveer. “The couple is going snorkelling and will spend time with each other. There are people in Sri Lanka who can identify them, but then it’s also a country that lets people be at peace and doesn’t intrude on privacy. So, they will be able to spend quality time with each other,” a source was quoted in a Deccan Chronicle saying.
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh will be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavat. Now the real thing is to know that Deepika and Ranveer are going to tie the knot secretly in Sri Lanka or not. Let’s wait and watch.
In a weird claim by a 29-year-old man from Andhra Pradesh that actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is his mother, it looks like 2018 starts for the actress on a bizarre note. Sangeeth Kumar insists that Aishwarya gave birth to him in 1988, who adds Rai after his first and middle name. Funnily, Aishwarya was just 14 years old in 1988.
Kumar told the media in Mangaluru last week that “I was born to her by IVF in London in 1988. I was brought up in Chodavaram from age three to 27. I was with my grandmother Brinda Krishnaraj Rai’s family at the age of one and two in Mumbai. My grandfather Krishnaraj Rai died in April 2017 (March) and my uncle’s name in Aditya Rai”. The 29-year-old man, who definitely have not even a single proof of his big claims, also claimed that his ‘mother’ is separated from husband, Abhishek Bachchan, and is “living alone”.
“I want my mom to come and live with me in Mangaluru. It’s already 27 years since I separated from my family, I miss her a lot. I don’t want to go to Visakhapatnam, at least I want my mother’s number so that I’ll be free,” Kumar added. He alleged that he did not open his mouth before because he was “manipulated” by relatives. “I’m getting enormous headache and anger at my native place, most of my relatives have manipulated things since childhood, otherwise I would have come back to my mother before itself with clear information. Due to lack of information, I could not come to my mother, so now I got all clarity. Ultimate thing is I want my mom,” Sangeeth added.
On the other hand, Aishwarya Rai is busy shooting for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s musical comedy Fanney Khan. She will be seen opposite Rajkummar Rao in the film, which also features Anil Kapoor in the lead.
The Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan knows very well how to amaze audiences and that’s exactly what he had done with his upcoming film ‘Zero’. Keeping up the promise, the 52-year-old actor took to Twitter at exactly 5 pm to reveal the title of his next film with director Anand L Rai. The title has been revealed through a small teaser in which we can see Shahrukh Khan in a never-seen-before avatar.
The Bollywood superstar is playing the role of a dwarf in the film, which also features Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in vital roles. Shahrukh Khan and director Anand L Rai involved in chitchat over the pending announcement on Twitter. The 52-year-old actor asked the director about the announcement of the title, and they reached a conclusion to release it at 5 pm on Monday. “@aanandlrai sir, title kab announce karna hai? Ya 2018 mein bhi gaaliyan khaani hain?! @AnushkaSharma #KatrinaKaif,” to which the filmmaker replied, “Arre sir apno ki gaaliyaan hain, khaa lenge 😊Par aap bataao ? 1st January kaisa rahega ?” Khan asked Rai.
Following this, Khan asked the filmmaker if he would only announce the title. “Accha rahega…Par sirf title announce karoge ya kuch dikhaaoge bhi? @AnushkaSharma #KatrinaKaif” The filmmaker was more than happy to add, “Naye Saal ka pehla din hai Khan Saab!!! Kuch dikha bhi dena chahiye….😊 @AnushkaSharma #KatrinaKaif,” Srk asked. The character of Shahrukh Khan in Zero will be three feet tall, and the special effects (VFX) used in the film helped in making the ‘dwarf’ character look realistic.
The director recently said that SRK’s performance is going to be the USP of the film. “They (fans) are carrying an image in their mind and it is not exactly what we have in the film. When we were working on it we did not know it (dwarf part) will look this way. I want to replace that image with the right image. The film’s USP is Shah Rukh’s performance,” Rai said.
The Bollywood’s Sultan Salman Khan is riding high as he’s giving back to back blockbuster movies. Salman’s ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ is not only having a dream run at the box office but also expected to create some new records in the coming days. The film has earned Rs 254.75 crore so far. This Salman Khan starrer also features Katrina Kaif, Sajjad Delafrooz, Angad Bedi, and Paresh Rawal in vital roles.
The year 2017 wasn’t really a great one for Bollywood in terms of box office performance, but Salman’s film ended it with a blast as Tiger Zinda Hai touched Rs 22.23 crore on the last day of the year. There is no stoppage for Salman’s film as it collected Rs 18.04 on Monday. “#TigerZindaHai commences New Year with a POWER-PACKED PUNCH… Now eyeing *lifetime biz* of #BajrangiBhaijaan and #Sultan… [Week 2] Fri 11.56 cr, Sat 14.92 cr, Sun 22.23 cr, Mon 18.04 cr. Total: ₹ 272.79 cr. India biz. #TZH,” trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the updated collections. The film has already become the biggest film of 2017 after Baahubali 2: The Conclusion.
This Salman Khan starrer does not have any competition soon ahead as big Hindi films like Padman and Aiyaary would release on January 26. So, the film is all set to rule the box office in the coming days as well. This Salman Khan is fortunate as well because there’s no big release until January 26.
The Deepika Padukone’s upcoming film Padmavati may now be titled as “Padmavat” as it is one of the suggestions made by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to the makers of the film. As the film is based on the book Padmavat by poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi, the title may also change to Padmavat. This epic poem was written in the sixteenth century.
The examining committee constituted by Censor Board had a meeting on December 28 where it decided to give U/A certificate to the film with minor modifications. Some TV channels, however, showed the news that the board has suggested for 26 changes in the film including a change in the title. “Central Board of Film Certification had examining committee meeting on 28 Dec to review #Padmavati & decided to give it UA certificate along with some modifications & likely change of the title to Padmavat. Certificate to be issued once required & agreed modifications are made,” ANI tweeted. The review panel included Arvind Singh from Udaipur, Dr. Chandramani Singh and Prof KK Singh of Jaipur University.
The Bhansali’s film witnessed trouble right from the start when its director Sanjay Leela Bhansali started shooting in Jaipur in March-April this year. The director was slapped and assaulted on the sets of the film by members of Karni Sena who staged an angry protest at Jaigarh Fort in Jaipur where he was shooting for the film. Creating chaos on the sets, they also damaged cameras and other shooting equipment while raising slogans and abusing. Following this, Rajput groups also staged violent protests on the rumors that Bhansali included a romantic scene between the queen and Allauddin Khilji, who was the Delhi emperor, attacked Mewar’s capital Chittorgarh. The film stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in pivotal roles.
Salman Khan is truly a rescuer for the Indian box office. His recent film ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ has proved it again that he’s unarguably the biggest superstar of recent times. The 52-year-old actor’s film not only shattered many records at the box office but also revived the slowed down Indian box office. From last some months, many big Indian films failed to create moolah at the box office. Tiger Zinda Hai roared at the box office as it was expected.

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has comprised a six-member panel including historians, experts and members of the former royal family to examine the authenticity of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial magnum opus Padmavati. The panel is ready to review the film as it still waits to get a nod from the censor board for release in cinema halls.
The previous royal family of Mewar had refused to be a part of the panel and on the other hand, asked for a formally written clarification on the points raised by him earlier, the ministry of information and broadcasting said. The panel constituted by Censor Board Chief Prasoon Joshi to “scrutinize the authenticity” of the script will make its comments after which the CBFC is likely to send a formal report to the ministry. Prior to it, the film was sent back to the producers following it was found that the column for declaring whether it was a work of fiction or was based on historical facts was left blank.
The censor board members also added that the film has been pointlessly added in controversy due to unclear disclaimers in its application for a certification that it is ‘partially based on historical facts’. Bhansali, however, had refused to call it a work of fiction. This magnum opus 190-crore budgeted film was scheduled for December 1 release but following the controversy over Karni Sena’s alleged distorting of history in the film delayed its release. The chief ministers of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh had already banned the film till its important portions that represent Rani Padmini in the wrong light are deleted from the film.
