Bigg Boss 12 witnessed its first Weekend Ka Vaar episode today and well, it was entertaining, interesting and got us all excited for the part two tomorrow. Salman Khan came in and the first thing he did was to croon to the track ‘Main Hun Hero Tera’ as ‘Sab Hai Hero Yahan’ version of his song. He later reached out to the inmates through television and boy, he was in the mood to prank. His first target was television celeb Srishti Rode. He asked her rather sternly why did she disrespect Anup Jalota and Jasleen Matharu’s relationship. She broke down claiming she did no such thing. Looks like Salman’s favourite is Anup and Jasleen’s unconventional Jodi because he even compared with Heer-Ranjha and Romeo-Juliet. He even praised Deepak Kumar and made him say a news bulletin in English. Later, he asked housemates who they think is unnecessarily picking fights, all including Dipika Kakar took Saba Khan’s name. Salman too was not very pleased with her behaviour in the house and asked her abo..

The audience in India have been exposed to VFX of global standards and the team of Haathi Mere Saa..

The scorching chemistry between veteran ghazal-bhajan singer Anup Jalota and Jasleen Matharu in Bigg Boss 12 has stirred up quite a controversy and raised many conservative eyebrows. The raised eyebrows can rest easy. The entire linkup is nothing but a gimmick to add spice to an otherwise-bland season of Bigg Boss. A source very close to Jalota who wishes to remain unnamed spills the beans. “Anup can never ever fall in love again. He was completely in love with his wife Medha and when she died of a chronic heart ailment a few years back something within him died with her. To insinuate a relationship with a girl who is 40 years his junior is just a means of generating cheap scandal.” The source also reveals that the Jalota – Jasleen liaison had been “fixed” before the show began. “It was decided beforehand. We are only surprised that Anupji agreed to something so cheesy,” says the source assuring Jalota’s fans, it will all be over after the singer is out of the Bigg Boss house. Also..

Mahesh Bhatt’s Sadak 2 will be a litmus test for several careers. Not only is Mahesh Bhatt making a comeback to direction after 19 years, his daughter, Pooja Bhatt returns to acting after a huge hiatus. Would Sadak 2 resurrect these careers? As for Sanjay Dutt, he has not had a success since his return from incarceration. But the career that needs the optimum push right now is that of Aditya Roy Kapur. After a spectacular impact in Aashiqui 2, Aditya’s career has gone downhill at a rapid pace. Apparently, there was a debate among the Bhatt’s whether to cast Ranbir Kapoor alongside Alia Bhatt as the second pair in Sadak 2. Says a source in the know, “It was Alia’s idea to persuade her father to return to direction with Sadak 2 . While Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt, the original lead pair from Sadak, were a given, it was the other pair that the Bhatt’s mulled over. While Ranbir Kapoor was the obvious first choice opposite Alia, the languishing Aditya Roy Kapur finally bagged the part. M..

Sidharth Malhotra is all set to reunite with his Hasee Toh Phasee co-star Parineeti Chopra. The two actors have already started filming their next, Jabariya Jodi, a unique film based on pakadwa shaadi, that is forcibly getting the groom married. Sidharth is expected to essay the role of a thug with Parineeti as his childhood love interest. While their chemistry in recently released posters is a talk of the town, the actors too have decided to put in their 100 percent for the film. So much so that Sidharth has gone sleepless for 48 hours, albeit for a scene. It seems that the makers were supposed to shoot for a sequence where Sidharth Malhotra was supposed to faint due to tiredness. However, they were not keen on adding only makeup to the scene and wanted more credibility. They decided to shoot the scene in the night to showcase tiredness but the actor went another step ahead for this. Sidharth, in fact, ended up not sleeping for 48 hours in order to get the look of tiredness and to a..
One week into Bigg Boss 12 and there are already MULTIPLE controversies revolving around most of its contestants. One of the most talked about pairs in the house is Anup Jalota and Jasleen Matharu. The main talking point of this pair is the fact that they have 37 year difference between them. And apparently, even Jasleen’s parents were unaware about this relationship. Initially, the singer-dancer’s father Kesar Matharu supported his daughter on the show but in the recent interview he said that he is NOT for the relationship between Jasleen and Anup and called her ‘foolish’ for indulging in this. He said that he never gave approval for this relationship and he did not even know that the nature of their equation was romantic. He said he sent Jasleen with Anup thinking it is a guru-shishya kinda thing. But it is shocking for him to even think that his 28 year old daughter is dating someone older to him. He even said that public in general is pretty outraged with this and have told him t..
