Amitabh Bachchan has recently recorded the aarti for the temple and a recording of the same will be played within the premises.
Amitabh Bachchan recently recorded the same at Aadesh Shrivastav's studio and the music is composed by Rohan-Vinayak. Further, we also hear that Shoojit Sircar will be recording the video and asserting the same, the megastar added that they will be shooting only a portion within the temple since it wouldn't be possible to shoot there for a long period of time. Ravi Jadhav, deputy executive officer of Siddhi Vinayak Temple too confirmed that they have indeed asked Mr. Bachchan to sing the aarti. Excited about being a part of this devotional endeavor, Amitabh stated that he will be making the recorded CD of his voice as an offering to the temple. He also affirmed that the aarti will be available on the internet.

Alia Bhatt Shabana Azmi to star in film on Kashmiri girls band PragaashFrom dealing with heinous crimes to political assassinations, several Bollywood films have made a bold move of portraying some controversial stories on the big screen. Now, taking it further is director Rajashree Ojha who plans to make a film on Kashmiri band Pragaash.
Though Ojha was all set to kick start the recee for the film soon, faced a delay owing to the tension in Kashmir. However, now we hear that Alia Bhatt has been approached to play the lead vocalist along with a Kashmiri girl and a Pakistani actress playing the other two members of the band. Apart from Alia, it is also being said that Shabana Azmi is a part of the film as she will be portraying the role inspired by pro-Pakistani separatist Asiya Andrabi.
For the uninitiated, Pragaash is an all-girls rock band started by three Muslim girls namely Noma Nazir, lead guitarist and vocalist, drummer Farah Deeba and Aneeqa Khalid on the bass guitar in 2012. However, they faced severe resistance not only from their conventional society but also received death as well as rape threats on social media. They were accused of breaking the Islamic code by certain scholars followed by which Mufti Bashiruddin Ahmad, state's cleric continued to criticize the girls for 'indecent behaviour' and promoting music which he claimed was harmful to the society. However, the fight of the girls continued as they received support from police as well as globally online.
Farah Khan expresses her support for Vishal DadlaniJust yesterday we had reported that musician Vishal Dadlani had written a public apology seeking forgiveness for his controversial statements against the Jain monk, Tarun Sagar. Now we hear that the music composer's friend Farah Khan has come out in his support.
Commenting on the incident, Farah stated that she supported Dadlani who has always been a friend in each and every way. Further she also said that being a democratic country means allowing people to use their freedom of speech which translated to allowing them the ability to say what they wanted to.
As for Vishal, despite replying to multiple people individually on twitter by apologizing for his remarks, the composer also announced his resignation from the AAP party of which he was an active member.
No rift between Ashutosh Gowariker and Hrithik Roshan all set to work together againNot all filmmaker-actor relationships are as brittle as the one between Sanjay Leela Bhansali and his protege Ranbir Kapoor. The minute Saawariya flopped Ranbir moved away refusing to do any subsequent film that Bhansali offered him. Ashutosh Gowariker and Hrithik Roshan who collaborated over the historic Jodhaa Akbar have unfortunately come a cropper with their second team-effort Mohenjo Daro. The tabloids are turning turtle tittering over the twosome's torn togetherness.
All figments of an over-fertile imagination! For, sources close to both Gowariker and Roshan reveal that the duo is getting together again soon for a third film, regardless of the box office outcome of Mohenjo Daro. Says the source, "Both Ashutosh and Hrithik are far too sorted to indulge in any blame game. Reports of Hrithik sending Ashutosh angry text messages about the failure of Mohenjo Daro are not only false but also misleading. They are meant to create differences between the two by vested interests."
The source reveals that Hrithik has the utmost confidence in Ashutosh's abilities. "Hrithik said no to Sanjay Bhansali's Bajirao Mastani, so he could accommodate the huge chunks of dates required for Mahenjo Daro. Does Hrithik regret his choice? Not at all. He is very confident that his third collaboration with Ashutosh would be immensely rewarding."
While details of the proposed project bringing the two back are yet to be known one thing that the director and the star-actor are unlikely to do is yet another period film.
Arjun Kapoor slams stories about spending Rs 1 Lakh on partying and alcoholA few days ago, reports surfaced stating that back in June Arjun Kapoor had spent over Rs 1 lakh on partying and consuming alcohol and had handed the bill to his producer while shooting for Half Girlfriend in Delhi.
Arjun Kapoor, who keeps mum over a lot of negative stories, has finally addressed the issue and called it shameful. On Wednesday, Arjun was shooting for an upcoming show Vogue BFFs with his uncle Anil Kapoor. During the media interaction, Arjun was asked about it and he decided to address the controversy surrounding him. He said, "I don't like to react to ridiculous rumours but I am going to address this. The place where this story appeared, normally people don't take them seriously. But I am a son of a producer. When this outdoor shoot was going on in June, as you know, my grandmother was seriously unwell. As you must be aware, around that time, she passed away when I was shooting outdoor. So if during that phase, I was consuming alcohol and partying worth Rs 1 lakh, then there must seriously be something wrong with me and I shouldn't get a job after this film. I was travelling back and forth everyday from Bombay to Delhi, Delhi to Bombay, shooting over there and flying back home. I continued shooting."
Arjun further said that the Balaji team did throw a party for him on his birthday. He said, "It was my birthday the same month. I didn't want to celebrate but Balaji expressed that they wanted to throw a party. We partied until 1 AM in the morning. We celebrated my birthday by cutting a cake. The pictures of that party are all over the internet. Next morning, we all were on the set at 7 AM for the shoot. You can go and cross check it with Delhi Hyatt, where we shot the film. I'm very fair to all. I always take out time for you all and I never ever complain when something is written about my personal life. But, there's someone's personal evil agenda behind portraying me unprofessional. Somebody is upset or jealous to mislead people to ask questions like this or think of me like that. So, I really request you all to not give such things importance. I want you guys to be responsible, it is important. It is shameful the way it is being written about and nobody reacts like this can't happen. Instead, you guys are asking me- tell us what did you do? It's very very sad."
Arjun Kapoor concluded saying, "You guys know my grandmother passed away and if I was unprofessional, would I have finished that film? My father is known as one of the most amazing and serious producers in the country. You think as a producer's son, do you think I would put the other producer in jeopardy by giving him Rs 1.5 lakh worth bill? So it's shameful that someone from media has falsely accused me. I hope you should all retrospect and introspect so that next time I come; I don't get to hear such stories. "

Ajay Devgn demands investigation on whether Karan Johar paid Rs 25 lakh to KRK to bash ShivaayIn a shocking turn of events, a new war has started between Ajay Devgn and Karan Johar, which has made some shocking revelations.
On Thursday, Ajay Devgn released an audio clip in which self-proclaimed critic Kamaal R Khan revealed that he was paid Rs 25 lakh to praise Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. He wrote, "Hear what self proclaimed no. 1 critic and trade analyst Kamaal R Khan has to say." For those who don't know, Ajay's next Shivaay will be clashing at the box office with Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
Right after that, Ajay Devgn released an official statement saying that he has been a part of the Indian film industry for the past 25 years and has been associated with over 100 films. His father was a professional action director and that's why he has an emotional connection with this industry. It, therefore, pained him to see that people like Kamaal R Khan were holding the film industry to ransom by spreading negativity about films to extort money from producers. He further added that it was very sad that people from their own industry have been supporting such elements and spoiling the ethos of the film industry. Lastly, he demanded this be thoroughly investigated by competent authorities to clarify if Karan Johar was indeed involved in this.
As soon KRK got the news about the telephonic conversation, he took to his twitter account and revealed that Ajay Devgn and his co-producer Kumar Mangat too had approached him to promote Shivaay and bash Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. He wrote, "Kumar+Ajay offered me money to bash #AeDilHaiMushkil as he is offering in the tape also but I refused. I told them that I will do it free. Ppl thinking that I called Kumar Mangat but not true. Actually he is close friend n he only called me n he called me many times before also. One side Ajay Devgan is calling me self claimed critic n other side he thinks that I am really powerful no.1 critic who can harm his film. Today both films #Shivaay n #AeDilHaiMushkil got free publicity of millions of ? with my name and this is the power of The Brand KRK. G.N."
In an exclusive interaction with CNN News18, Kumar Mangat said that it is clear that KRK was paid to do this. He said that their legal team will be looking into the matter seriously and will take an action against the concerned person.
