Nominations for 3rd Annual “Ghanta Awards” are out

Ghanta-Awards

The Bollywood “Ghanta Awards” also known as the Indian “Razzie Awards” which gives away awards for the worst performances in bollywood is back with its 3rd edition. It was started in 2010 as an independent comedy show and has evolved into a huge awards event over the course of 3 years. This year, this hilarious event will be hosted by comic group East India Comedy’s stand-up comedians Sahil Shah, Sorabh Pant, Kunal Rao and Sapan Verma. We can for sure expect lot of comic stuff happening and already lot of movie buffs are eagerly waiting to embrace the show.

Sahil shah also known as “joke shah” is all excited about hosting the show says “We have seen some terrible movies last year and the best way to repress those memories is to make fun of them. This is the first time celebrities may pay us to make sure the award is given to somebody else”.
And guess who’s the jury for these awards, they are none other than most renown film critics Rajeev Masand, Sahil Rizwan, Karan Anshuman and Sudhish Kamath.

The popular categories that are included in these awards are worst actor, worst actress, worst director, worst film, worst song, and worst rip-off. Only actor who had received the award personally so far is Sonam Kapoor when she won worst actress award for Mausam and she took it very sportingly followed by a sarcastic speech of acceptance.
Talking about acceptance speeches Sorabh Pant says “We’re also planning some ridiculous acceptance speeches since 90 per cent of Bollywood is not going to come and accept the award.

Nawaz’s is an abusive husband, who dies and later returns to haunt his wife, reason: his only motive is to take away his daughter along with him.

From the trailer, Bipasha proves herself yet again. She is very impressive. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, do we need to say anything bout this super talented star? The trailer sees a number of scary moments between Bipasha and Nawaz

The music is by Sangeet and Siddarth Haldipur.

Talking about her take on ghost films, Bipasha said, “I have become the face of fear. I don`t mind being a trend setter. Horror is a genre of entertainment and if it has the producers and the audience, then why not.” And added, “I feel that horror is at the nascent stage at the moment. We can do so many different things with horror as a genre.”

Imran Khan to do his next movie with Vikramaditya Motwane

Imran Khan to do his next movie with Vikramaditya Motwane

Imran Khan

Rumour has it that Imran Khan will next be seen in Vikramaditya Motwane’s next project. The director who did his directorial debut with Udaan will now be directing a movie with Imran Khan under the banner of Phantom Productions.

A little birdie close to Vikramaditya Motwane told Times of India that “Vikram had a script for a long time but he was busy making Lootera. The film ran into a series of hiccups but now that finally it is back on track, he is thinking of other projects. A few days back, he met Imran for a narration.” And a birdie close to Imran confirmed and said that indeed, “Vikram and Imran have met and Imran has liked the script. The modalities will be worked out soon. The film is likely to go on floors in the second half of this year.”

However nothing is confirm and everything seems like an apparent rumour because neither Vikramaditya Motwane nor Imran Khan confirmed anything about a new project. Imran Khan’s latest movie Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola was a bit disappointing and did not do well at box office. Since Vikramaditya Motwane’s Udaan was a super hit, we hope that this next project which includes Imran will also be a hit.

Shahrukh Khan will be doing a sequel for Ra.One

Shahrukh Khan will be doing a sequel for Ra.One

Ra one

Shahrukh was apparently going to do only two movies this year, Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express and Farah Khan’s Happy New Year. But Shahrukh Khan is now rumoured to be too eager to do as many films as he can.

Shahrukh Khan apparently spoke to Rohit Shetty for two more scripts that he wants to work on. Besides that, Shahrukh has also started discussing plans to get set for Don 3 with Farhan Akhtar and producer Ritesh Sidhwani and then there is this very weirdly titled movie, A For Apple, B For Billi, C For Cutta by a little known filmmaker called Anil Senior.

Well why so eager Shahrukh? Does this eagerness has something to do with other Khan’s (Salman Khan and Aamir Khan) entering the 100 crore club? Well, that could be one of the reasons, couldn’t it? And if this is not the reason. Then why is Shahrukh Khan taking up so many movie? Isn’t this what young actors do? Take up a lot of movies and fail miserably in all of them? Or is Shahrukh Khan planning on buying a new IPL team? Along with Kolkata Knight Riders? One can guess endlessly and never come to the right conclusion, unless King Khan himself blesses us with the right answer!
