    Raja Natwarlal fails at the box office 

    Emraan Hashmi’s Raja Natwarlala which released last Friday in 2000 screens across the country was able to bank only Rs. 6.10 crores on its first day. Though the film started on a weak note, it was expected to do better over the weekend. But against all assumptions, the numbers dropped severely on the second day and nor did they get better on the third. The film collected Rs. 5.15 crores on Saturday and Rs. 6.15 crores on Sunday. According to ongoing trends, Raja Natwarlal has failed to impress the masses and will stutter around at 25 to 30 crores nett lifetime collection. The film is facing tough competition from Rani Mukerji’s Mardaani which witnessed a decent second weekend at the box office. A good word of mouth and no big releases along with it worked in Mardaani’s favor. The film has so far collected Rs. 33.97 crores worldwide.

    With Priyanka Chopra’s highly anticipated Mary Kom releasing this Friday, both Raja Natwarlal and Mardaani have only 4 days to bank strong.

    Ram Gopal Varma booked for offensive tweets 

    On Thursday, Ram Gopal Varma set the twitterverse buzzing with his sacrilegious tweets against one of the most adored Indian gods, Ganesh. Following his posts that obviously went down the wrong way, a police case was registered on Sunday against the filmmaker, by lawyer Karuna Sagar, at the Saroornagar police station in Cyberabad.

    Following the case, the filmmaker was booked under sections 153 A (promoting enmity between different groups), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace), 505 (statements conducing to public mischief), and 298 (hurting religious feelings) of the Indian Penal Code. Further in his complaint, Sagar alleges that Ram Gopal Varma has hurt the religious sentiments of Hindus by insulting Lord Ganesh through his series of tweets.

    Apart from this complaint several other police complaints were filed against Varma in Mumbai, despite the filmmaker attempting an apology in his usual statistic way saying, “All tweets I put on Ganesha were in my usual manner but unintended by me to hurt anyone’s sentiments… but if they did I sincerely apologise.” …read more

    Apparently, kabaddi is a big part of you next film, Tevar. Did that inspire you to own a kabaddi team?
    Yes, Arjun (Kapoor) is a kabaddi player in Tevar. I’m not playing kabaddi in the film. But it’s a fast-paced, exciting and an earthy sport. So when I was approached with the prospect of owning a team, I jumped at it. I’ve been interested in sports since childhood. I believe it’s time that games other than cricket are given importance in our …read more

    Remo D’Souza has many films on his platter right now. While he is busy shooting with Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor for his next ABCD 2, a sequel to the dance film ABCD:Any Body Can Dance, the choreographer turned director has a lot more beyond dance films in his mind. Remo and Karan Johar will be joining hands for a fast paced action film that is based on Formula 1 racing.

    Remo and Karan bonded well on the sets of the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa where the two are judges and the two decided to team up for a film. In fact, the film was supposed to go on floor before Remo decided to dip his hands into the sequel for ABCD. However, Karan Johar wasn’t satisfied with the initial script of the action film and had asked for a few changes, due to which, Remo decided to shift focus to ABCD 2.

    ABCD 2 is based in Las Vegas unlike its prequel which was based in Mumbai. The film is inspired from the real life story of popular dancers Suresh and Vernon of the Fictitious Group. Apart from that, Remo will also be working on a dance …read more

Though Ranbir was only supposed to have a cameo in the film, sources say he’s now an integral part of the script, which is why the film has been delayed. Ouch.

    Guess who? 

    So if you want the time of this in-house casting director from one of the biggest production houses in B-town, it comes at a hefty price. Doesn’t matter even if you’re a relatively known face. A while ago, this popular TV host cum actor went to meet this casting director and was shocked when he was asked to cough up a sum of ` 25,000 per hour. When the actor told the casting director that he wasn’t carrying that kind of cash on him, he was asked to go down to the ATM and withdraw the money. Though the shocked actor gave the money this time around, he’s sworn never to go back there.
