Sunny Leone skips her documentary premiere in Toronto

Sunny Leone failed to keep her appointment with what was perhaps the most glorious chapter of her career in the entertainment business: the premiere of the documentary Mostly Sunny on her rise from an adult-content star to Bollywood actress at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

The 2-hour documentary directed by ace-photographer Dilip Mehta was apparently done with the full approval and participation of Sunny and her husband Daniel Weber. But now the documentary seems to have caused some amount of heartburn in the Leone camp.

Says a source from Toronto, "The premiere of the Sunny Leone documentary was to be held on Sunday night at the TIFF at 10.30 pm. Dilip Mehta and his sister Deepa Mehta had even organized a lunch in honour of Sunny Leone which she was to attend along with her husband. But she didn't turn up for the lunch or the premiere in the evening."

When I touched base with Sunny and her husband Daniel they were in New York attending a family function. Says Daniel, "Sunny had a prior commitment. Sunday was a very very important day for her nephew (Daniel's nephew)'s bar mitzvah. This was planned one year in advance."

But the grand Toronto premiere of Sunny's documentary was also planned well in advance. Why wasn't Dilip Mehta and his team informed that Sunny won't be able to attend?

Anees Bazmee wont get into panga with Ileana for Aankhen 2

Producer Gaurang Doshi is at war with leading lady Ileana D'Cruz for first saying yes then saying no to his film Aankhen 2.

However, Aankhen 2 director Anees Bazmee refuses to get into the fight. "This has nothing to do with me. It is true that Gaurang and I met Ileana for Aankhen 2. I don't know why she decided not to do Aankhen 2. We must respect her decision."

Anees' 'respect' for Ileana's decision could stem from the fact that she is doing his other film Mubaraka, where she co-stars with Arjun Kapoor.

Says Anees, "Yes, Ileana is working in my Mubaraka. And it would be unethical of me to discuss her reasons for not doing my other film (Aankhen 2). As far as Mubaraka is concerned she has been very professional in her dealings. And I love the way she responded to her character and to the script. I could tell from her expressions that she completely understood the situations in the comedy. I am looking forward to working with her."

Shabana Azmi to sing for Aparna Sens Sonata

While it is not new for a veteran like Shabana Azmi to follow the path of unconventional and parallel cinema, the actress has decided to go out-of-the-box yet again for Aparna Sen's Sonata. Shabana will be singing two Rabindranath Tagore classics for the upcoming film.

Shabana Azmi will be reviving the songs 'Aaji jharer raate' and 'Sokhi andhare' for the film. Revealing that she was terrified about it, she was all praises for her hubby and renowned poet and writer Javed Akhtar as well as her friend and filmmaker Aparna Sen whom she fondly addresses as Rina for encouraging her to sing. In fact, Shabana also expressed her gratitude towards her coach Sharoni Sen who helped her get the nuances right whilst singing the classics. Also mentioning about the role she plays in Sonata, the actress added that her character Dolon is funny, warm, demonstrative and volatile.

Based on Mahesh Eklunchwar's play Sonata, the English film also stars Aparna Sen, Sohag Sen, Lillette Dubey among others.

Parineeti Chopra quits Circus

Earlier we had reported that Parineeti Chopra has signed the directorial debut of choreographer Bosco Martis, Circus. However, now we hear that the actress has decided to quit the project and move on.

Gearing up for a film after a hiatus, the reason behind Parineeti Chopra's exit is said to be that she was unhappy with the fact that she was not offered a bound script for Circus. The film which is supposed to trace the journey of a father-daughter relationship amidst a musical backdrop was said to feature the actress doing a lot of stunts. It has been learnt that what also left the actress upset was the news that she has signed the film when she had only heard the script. Apparently, the news broke out in the media even before the actress signed the dotted line which has left her miffed. Her team is looking after the films she has signed and according to them the actress has only signed Meri Pyaari Bindu as of now.

On the other hand, while the hunt for the lead actress is on, Circus also stars Suniel Shetty and Sooraj Pancholi in prominent roles.

Gulzar to recite poetry at the launch of Mirzya

After giving a sneak peek into the title track of Mirzya and a couple of other tracks, the makers are all set to launch the complete album of the film in a grand but unique way. In fact, they have decided to bring in veteran poet Gulzar, who is also the lyricist and writer of the film, to recite poems at the music launch.

Mirzya's trailer has been receiving a positive response and its music has a unique touch of folk to it. Also considering that poetry is an integral part of the film and in order to make the music launch more entertaining, we hear that it was the makers who came out with this idea. Voicing out similar thoughts, director - producer Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra added that music and poetry is the soul of the film and he also confirmed Gulzar's presence by stating that he will be reciting his favourite poem from the film. Besides the legendary writer, musicians Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and singer Daler Mehendi too will be performing at the event.

Marking the debut of Anil Kapoor's son Harshvardhan in Bollywood along with Saiyami, Mirzya is slated to release on October 7.

KBC 9 to be launched next month on Amitabh Bachchans birthday

After the stupendous success of the last eight seasons of the most popular TV quiz show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' (KBC), news is afloat that the ninth edition of the game show will be launched next month.

Readers may recall that KBC's host Amitabh Bachchan will be celebrating his birthday next month (October 11 to be precise). And if the buzz is to be believed, then, the ninth edition of KBC will be launched on October 11, which coincides with Amitabh Bachchan's birthday.

Rumors also suggest that while the concept and the format of KBC will remain the same as before, KBC 9 may just undergo a few handful of changes in terms of the look and feel of the show. In addition to that, even the jackpot prize money will be much more than the earlier episodes.

However, you do keep watching this space for further developments.

No clash no competition for SS Rajamoulis Bahubali The Conclusion in 2017

This is unprecedented. In the times when two biggies have started clashing with each other due to unavailability of the right release slots, S.S. Rajamouli's Bahubali: The Conclusion is set for a free run for a complete month.

"Just a few weeks back, we had Rustom taking on Mohenjo Daro. This Diwali would see the clash of Shivaay and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Moreover, there is still stalemate for 26th January next year as both Kaabil and Raees have their eyes fixed on the Republic Day slot. However, it seems no one in Bollywood is willing to come even close to Bahubali: The Conclusion. Not just is the film arriving solo on April 14, there is no other film which has yet been scheduled for next three weeks either. This is simply amazing," informs a trade insider.

This can be pretty much evidenced from the fact that not even a single Bollywood film, be it small or big, has been booked for any of the three Fridays ahead which fall on April 21, April 28 or May 5, 2017.

"After Bahubali: The Conclusion, the next big release is Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi's Baadshaho. The Milan Luthria starrer has been fixed for May 12 release. However, between April 14 and this date, it is going to be only one film - Bahubali: The Conclusion," the insider continues.

While this sounds too good to be true for the Telugu film which is set to release in Hindi and Tamil as well, there is a solid reason behind the positioning that the Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah film has managed for itself.

"See, it is a given that it would practically occupy all screens meant for Telugu releases on its arrival. That takes care of the South India. In fact the film will see the biggest Tamil dubbed release ever too and hence one can't even expect a major Tamil film to release alongside. However, what takes the cake is the all-India market from the Hindi film standpoint," comments a prominent exhibitor, "Karan Johar has joined hands again with the makers of Bahubali: The Conclusion. Even Bahubali: The Beginning had seen the biggest arrival ever for a dubbed Hindi film. Now the sequel will see an almost mainstream Hindi release."

All of this means that even on a conservative scale, the film would release on at least 3000 screens, which are otherwise meant for Hindi releases.

"The film has earned this right," a senior distributor adds, "When the first part does a business of Rs. 117 crore without much of a hype or a known case and solely on the basis of word of mouth, just imagine how it can do now when anyone who is a fan of Indian movies wants to know - 'Why did Katappa kill Bahubali?'. Just to get this answer, the film would be hyped beyond imagination. It would be foolhardy for anyone to not go all out in terms of bringing the film to theatres. A regular big film releases on 3500+ screens and a Khan film doesn't bargain for anything less than 5000. Will Bahubali not warrant even 3000 screens?" This pretty much takes care of any other Hindi film even daring to come alongside Bahubali: The Conclusion. However, what takes the cake is an open slot for three Fridays after that.

"It makes sense that no other film is thinking of arriving a week ahead on April 21. However, it is unlikely that the slots of April 28 and May 5 will remain vacant as well. In fact I am sure that some of the other prominent film would pick and choose these slots, especially the one on April 28, so that it has two good weeks ahead of itself before Baadshaho arrives," a filmmaker comments.

Well, while one waits to see who takes the plunge, for now Bahubali is indeed showing its 'bal' and keeping other filmmakers at bay!
