The first poster of Zoya Akhtar’s much awaited ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ is finally out for everyone to see. Zoya gives a deja vu of her ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ here.
But we aren’t complaining as the film has a star cast to boast of and exotic locales for us to plan our next vacation.
Starring Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Ranveer Singh, Anil Kapoor, Anushka Sharma and Shefali Shah; ‘Dil Dhadkne Do’ is about a dysfunctional Punjabi family on a cruise trip. What is interesting is that Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh who were romancing each other in ‘Gunday’ will be playing siblings in the film. Ranveer’s alleged former flame Anushka Sharma on the other hand will be seen opposite him in the movie.
The film that is written by Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti releases on June 5, 2015.
Anushka Sharma has been utmost conscious about her overall appearance in her upcoming movie ‘Bombay Velvet’ and the actress is making sure her personality isn’t weighed down.
In the recently released image the actress is seen donning a heavily embroidered gown laced with appliqué flames as she stands up facing the audience.
For Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet, the actor has gone up to the extent of burdening herself under this 35 kg weight gown exquisitely designed by Niharika Bhasin Khan.
In the movie Anushka is playin the role of a jazz singer from late 70′s. For the scene she dons this stunning, shimmer gold and emerald creation that has been used for her opening song in the period drama.
The sequined gown is laced with heavy embellishments and a long train. The dress itself has a story to tell, according to Niharika, she had to work on the dress again after it was damaged by rains in Sri Lanka.
Designer Niharika explains the entire scene, “The scene sees her behind the mic in a club. It took her two-and-half hours to dress and two assistants had to carry the train for her. Thankfully she did not have to dance in it”
For this film alone the designer had carved out a total of 144 dresses for Anushka.
Anushka Sharma has certainly come a long way since her debut alongside Shah Rukh Khan in the film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. While on one hand, Anushka has been taking over the reins as a producer for the filmNH10, on the other, she continues with her acting assignments.Interestingly, after her not so successful Matru Ki Bijlee Ki Mandola, Anushka will be seen in the upcoming film Bombay Velvet. Bollywood Hungama gives its surfers a sneak peak at Anushka’s look in the film. In fact the dress that Anushka is wearing in this shot weighs a whooping 35 kgs, which the actress dons for the role of a jazz singer in Bombay Velvet.
Anushka is seen sporting the green and gold gown, designed by Niharika Bhasin Khan in her opening song in the period drama. Sequined, with a long train covered in flames, Anushka apparently needed help to carry off, while the said scene sees her behind the mic in a club.
Bombay Velvet that also features Ranbir Kapoor, Karan Johar, Raveena Tandon, Kay Kay Menon and Remo Fernandes, is co-produced by Phantom Films and Fox Star Studios. Directed by Anurag Kashyap the film is slated to release on November 28, 2014.
Anushka Sharma‘s first home-production NH10, which was supposed to release on September 12 has reportedly been pushed to next year.
According to reports, change in release date was decided to avoid overdose of Anushka’s films in the last quarter of 2014.
Anushka Sharma has two releases this year
With the Aamir Khan-starrer P.K. and the Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Bombay Velvet, arriving in hardly within a gap of two weeks the makers don’t want to crowd it further.
Confirming the same, director Navdeep Singh told a tabloid, “We haven’t locked a date yet, but yes, the film will be pushed ahead. The producers are looking for a clear window. This year there is a clutter of big films and we don’t want to be overpowered by them. It’s the marketing team’s call, they want the film to have a good run.”
Dil Dhadakne Do is an upcoming Bollywood film film, directed by Zoya Akhtar and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertaintment. The film features an ensemble cast including Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar, Anushka Sharma, Anil Kapoor and Shefali Shah. The film evolves around a dysfunctional Punjabi family on a cruise trip where the film is based on.
Actress Anushka Sharma is off to Istanbul to shoot her upcoming movie titled ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’.
“Off to Istanbul for the second leg of dil dhadakne do .. Sleep deprived and totally dazed .. I will sleep the hell out on this flight ),” Anushka tweeted.
It was in January last year when Anushka Sharma was last seen on the big screen. The film was MATRU KI BIJLEE KA MANDOLA which saw largely mixed reviews from audience as well as critics, and didn’t quite enjoy a long run for itself. For Anushka Sharma, who was riding high on the success of JAB TAK HAI JAAN, a lukewarm response to her Vishal Bhardwaj film was disappointing to say the least.
However, exactly 20 months after the film which saw her pairing with Imran Khan in a Haryana backdrop, Anushka is now gearing up to strike back with NH10. This time around, the film has a Rajashthan backdrop and with Navdeep Singh (of MANORAMA – SIX FEET UNDER) at the helm of affairs, it is pretty much expected that the intriguing tale would present her in a different avatar altogether.
Said to be an out and out performance oriented film which features Anushka as a central protagonist, NH10 has been kept under the wraps ever since it went on floors. In fact there has been so much secrecy about this film (which is said to be high on thrills and suspense quotient too) that not even a single frame of the film has been revealed (or ‘leaked’) so far!
Though Anushka has been in news due to her endorsements, television appearances and link up with Virat Kohli, rest assured she would have a lot to talk about once her NH10 comes closer to release. While she has co-produced the film, there is an exciting combination of Eros (Sunil Lulla) and Phantom Productions (Vikramaditya Motwane) coming together which only makes it a hatke affair.
While it is expected that at least the first look of the film would be unveiled soon, one waits to see a different Anushka on display once NH10 releases all over on 12th September.
First look of leggy lass Anushka Sharma’s first production ‘NH 10’ with her company Clean Slate Films, along with Phantom Films, has been revealed. Starring Miss Sharma in the lead, the actress will be paired opposite the ‘Shaitan’ fame Neil Bhoopalam.
Talking about the film, it is an action thriller film based on a couple’s road trip that goes wrong. It will be directed by the ‘Manorma six Feet Under’ fame Navdeep Singh. Shooting of the film is complete and it is currently in its last stage of production.
Anushka who was happy with wrap up of the film, took to Twitter and wrote, “Film wrap for NH10 !!! Another awesome team ! Will miss everyone…. ”
Shooting for the film began in the month of January and it was completed within five months.
We bring in the exclusive news that the highly anticipated Aamir Khan’s P.K. (Peekay) teaser-trailer will release with Salman Khan’s Kick. Disney-UTV is the studio behind the two of the biggest films this year beside YRF – Shahrukh Khan’s Happy New Year.
Our sources inside UTV have given us the info about the marketing plan which the studio has designed for the highly anticipated Aamir Khan- Rajkumar Hirani next biggie P.K which marks the return of the team behind one of the biggest as well as most acclaimed blockbuster 3 Idiots. P.K is huge in various contexts. It also releases on Aamir Khan’s luckiest release date i.e Christmas. We guess you do remember the records that have been created with Ghajini, 3 Idiots and Dhoom 3.
Rajkumar Hirani is easily the most acclaimed, successful and loved filmmaker of the current generation of directors besides Rohit Shetty.
The sources inside UTV has said that the studio is quite clear that they will start the promotional campaign with Salman Khan’s mega Eid release Kick. The promo which will be out with Kick could be a teaser or a trailer – this is something they have not decided as of yet. P.K which was earlier slated to release on 25th December is now all set to release on 19th December 2014
The advantage of releasing a teaser-trailer of a Aamir Khan’s film releasing with a big release of Salman Khan is huge. It gives the trailer some extra hype plus gives it a huge platform too. Lets just hope that P.K exceeds all the expectations and turns out to be an even better film than 3 Idiots and the Munnabhai series.
The cast of Dil Dhadakne Do is on a roll with latenight parties and visits from their love interests
Zoya Akhtar is busy cruising through European waters as she films Dil Dhadakne Do. Her cruise liner, presently anchored in the Italian island of Sardinia, is host to an assembly of stars, including Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma, Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar and Anil Kapoor. And Ranveer and Anushka who were earlier dating each other, had their current beaus, Deepika Padukone and Virat Kohli for company too.
A source revealed: “Deepika spent 10 days with Ranveer when the ship halted in Barcelona, Spain,. They explored the city and shopped together.” But they were careful not to post any pictures though Deepika did tweet on Monday complaining that a European airline had lost her bags.
Priyanka was all praise for her costars and their favourite hangout on the liner, Deck 7. PeeCee’s mother Madhu Chopra joined her in Barcelona. The actress has been bonding with Farhan who directed her in the Don franchise.
Anushka’s cricketer boyfriend Virat Kohli joined her in the first week of June. Confirmed a source, “He spent five days with her but has now returned as the Indian team is to leave for a series in England.”
The crew is done filming in Spain, Italy and France. “We are now ready to dock in Turkey for the final schedule,” informed producer Ritesh Sidhwani from Sardinia, “We are shooting from 6 am to 6 pm, six days a week. We return to India on July 15.”
He explained that Deck 7 is the 7th level on the liner where the cast and crew chills after pack-up. “There are around 2500 tourists on board too who know a shoot is in progress. Together we sing and dance to both Bollywood and local numbers in Deck 7. When we dock, everybody is out exploring the local towns on their own. Thankfully, there haven’t been any cases of sea-sickness, yet,” he laughed. Anushka, who like Ranveer is on her first cruise, was worried about this when she set sail.
