Varun Dhawan to launch Sophie Choudrys upcoming singleWhen Sophie Choudry took to social media to make the announcement of her upcoming single, she triggered the curiousity of her fans and industry friends by posting pictures that hint at marriage. But now that she has decided to break the suspense and talk about the single, her Bollywood friends have come in support of her and Varun Dhawan is one of them.
In fact, it is being said that Varun Dhawan will be launching Sophie Choudry's single 'Sajan Main Nachungi' on August 27. Sophie gained popularity as a singer-dancer during the era of remixes with songs like 'Mera Babu Chhail Chhabila', 'Ek Pardesi' among others. She debuted in Bollywood with Varun's father David Dhawan's film Shaadi No. 1. While she continued to make several such appearances and the last one being in Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Dobaara she continues to compose singles too.
On the other hand, Varun Dhawan who was last seen in Dishoom, kick started Shashank Khaitan's Badrinath Ki Dulhania. He will also start prepping for Judwaa 2 and if rumours are to be believed he will simultaneously also work for Abhishek Varman's Shiddat.
Sanjay Leela Bhansalis Padmavati to be produced by Viacom 18 and Eros InternationalOften associated with grandeur, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's films are known for its royal portrayal and his upcoming historical tale of love and lust, Padmavati isn't an exception. However, the film that boasts of an ensemble cast, periodic setting and the larger than life portrayal of two kingdoms is turning out to be an expensive venture and for that, two studios have come together for the film - Viacom 18 and Eros International.
In a unique move of sorts, Padmavati will bring together these two studios and the reason we hear is the lavish budget. After several speculations and discussions over remuneration, Padmavati is said to star three popular stars, namely - numero uno actress Deepika Padukone as the protagonist along with Gen Y superstar Ranveer Singh and renowned actor Shahid Kapoor. Hence it is being said that the budget of the film has gone through the roof and it also includes the grand backdrop which is generally a must in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film.
Talking about the periodic drama, Rani Padmini, is said to be the wife of Raja Ratan Singh of Chittor and she was known for her beauty all over India (as per described in the epic poem Padmavat written by poet Mallik Mohammed Jayasi in 1950). Alauddin Khilji, yet another ruler, after hearing about the tale of the beauty of the queen gets obsessed about her and will go to any extent to win her love, even if it means waging a war against Chittor.
Raveena Tandon to endorse Nanavati Super Speciality Hospitals organ donation awareness campaignActress Raveena Tandon was in the news lately because of her being felicitated at the 'Entertainment Trade Awards Achievers - 2016'. Besides Bollywood, Raveena Tandon is equally known for her role in many social causes as well.
After having endorsed many FMCG brands in her career, Raveena Tandon is now all set to be the brand ambassador of Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital's organ donation awareness campaign. As a part of this campaign, Raveena Tandon will also be felicitating the donors at the said event that will happen tomorrow.
Channel sources dismiss Jacqueline Fernandezs Rs 1 crore per day feeThe price structure for Bollywood stars' presence on television threatens to hit the roof and go beyond. But are these prices even worth considering as feasible?
No, say Channel insiders who don't want to be named for obvious reasons. Colors which hosts the dance-reality show Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa officially maintains a discreet silence over reports of Jacqueline Fernandez's 1-crore-per-day fee.
Unofficial sources pooh-pooh the claim as "publicity overdrive"
"Let's just say, the price being thrown around is highly implausible. She is paid a lot less than that amount, for sure. But then, it doesn't hurt her career if it is broadcast that she gets 1 crore every day for her appearance as a judge on a dance-reality show. It's an impressive figure and a nice reference point for her fees as an actress in future feature film," says the sources.
Jacqueline is not isolated in the overzealous market evaluation.
Several other A-list stars have lately been written about for getting grossly inflated fees for television deals. Hrithik Roshan has supposedly been paid Rs. 550 crores for a 5 -film deal on Star Plus. Salman Khan has reportedly snagged a whopping Rs. 1,000 crore deal for 10 films. Both the incredible deals are said to have been done with the Star channel.
However sources close to the development completely dismiss these figures as "wildly exaggerated".
Says a well-informed source, "We don't know who is leaking out these false numbers. They are unrealistic to the point of being preposterous. The stars themselves are certainly not responsible for spreading these unbelievable numbers, as such inflated figures makes them look delusional. These are figures being sneaked in by people who are certain they can get away with it. But anyone with even a basic knowledge of the financial reality of the entertainment world would know how outrageous it is to suggest Rs. 550 and Rs. 1000 crores as fees for satellite rights."
This source informs that there are two categories of films purchasable for Satellite. "Category A and Category B depending on the production budget of the film."

Taapsee Pannu to star in Neeraj Pandeys Baby prequelEarlier we had reported that Taapsee Pannu is all set to collaborate with her Baby director Neeraj Pandey. And now it is being said that a prequel is on the cards to the 2015 Akshay Kumar starrer Baby and that this time around it will apparently trace the journey of Taapsee as a special agent.
According to recent reports, the film is currently under the scripting stage and we also hear that it was Akshay Kumar's idea to have a female protagonist in this instalment.

On the other hand, speculations are rife that Manoj Bajpayee and Malayalam superstar Prithviraj have been roped in to play pivotal roles. Directed by Shivam Nair, the film will also have Akshay Kumar in a cameo.
