After enjoying a humongous opening weekend, Shahid Kapoor and Kiara Advani’s Kabir Singh has shown an excellent hold on Monday at the box office. As per the early estimates, the intense love story has raked in Rs 17 crore yesterday and now stands with the grand total of Rs 87.83 crore. So, by looking at the current scenario, we are expecting the film to enter the Rs 100 crore club today at the ticket windows.
As per Shahid Kapoor, the film has a unique approach, which attracted him towards it. “It’s what attracted me to the film in the first place. I believe there is a Kabir Singh inside everyone. That’s why people can relate to him so easily.”
The film has received rave reviews from all around the corners. Our editor-in-chief Tushar Joshi gave the film 4 stars and wrote, “Kabir Singh is an ace up Shahid Kapoor’s sleeve and a treat for his fans. Watch it if you want some intense romance laced up with knock-out performances.” He also praised Shahid’s performance and said, “Shahid delivers one of his careers finest performances. His rage and anger isn’t just on the surface but it’s visceral and a part of the air he breathes. To show that complexity isn’t easy, so Shahid digs deep and becomes the madness that is Kabir. He is deep and intense yet light and breezy when needed. There is a natural flair and charm that he puts to use full throttle. Kiara’s last scene with him is a revelation.”
Kiara Advani will be next seen in Akshay Kumar starrer Good News. The film also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh in key roles
Actress Kiara Advani is currently riding high on the humongous success of Kabir Singh, which is shattering records at the box office. The intense love story will soon enter the Rs 100 crore club and will become Shahid’s first solo film to achieve this feat. Everyone knows that Kiara Advani garnered critical acclaim and commercial success with MS Dhoni: The Untold Story but very few have an idea that it was not her debut.
Well, she made her silver screen appearance with Fugly, which was also the debut of Mohit Marwah, Arfi Lamba and boxer Vijender Singh. It also featured Jimmy Sheirgill in a lead role. It was directed by actor Kabir Sadanand and produced by superstar Akshay Kumar along with Ashvini Yardi. In fact, Akshay and Salman Khan had a cameo appearance in a song of the film. Despite a good promotion, the film failed to impress the audience and turned out to be a forgettable affair at the box office. But Kiara won our hearts with MS Dhoni, Lust Stories and Telugu blockbuster Bharat Ane Nenu.
On the work front, she will be next seen in Akshay Kumar starrer Good News. The film also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan and Diljit Dosanjh in key roles. The film is directed by Raj Mehta and is produced under the banner of Dharma Productions. It is scheduled to hit the screens on December 27. Post that, Kiara Advani will be seen in Akshay Kumar’s Laxxmi Bomb. The film revolves around the story of a cowardly man who gets possessed by the ghost of a transgender woman who takes revenge against the ones who destroyed her life. Directed by Kanchana series helmer Raghava Lawrence, Laxmmi Bomb releases on June 5, 2020.

The airport has become the favourite spot for Bollywood celebrities to showcase their ‘fashion ka jalwa’. From Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Kangana Ranaut, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja to Shahid Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Karan Johar, Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma, almost everyone from B-town is obsessed with getting their airport looks correct. And they are ready to do anything under the same to up their airport style game with every outing. That being said, celebrities don’t mind splurging heavily on shopping and always wish to be decked up from head to toe. Let’s take for instance – Alia Bhatt’s latest airport outing.
After returning from Brahmastra’s Varanasi schedule, Alia left for New York with her boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor. The lovebirds were spotted twinning and winning in white at the airport. The Kapoor lad opted for white cargos and a military green t-shirt which he paired with a white shirt, sneakers and a cap. On the other hand, Alia wore white cargos and a white shirt that she paired with a pink top. The actress opted for a no-make up avatar and yet managed to look absolutely stunning.
However, we had our eyes on her Gucci limited edition bag. Goes without saying, the limited edition Gucci garden golden emboss bag that she had, can be heavy on anyone’s pockets. The price tag of Alia’s bag is 1,899 pounds which is Rs 1,67,342 when converted to Indian currency.
After spending time with Ranbir and his parents (Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor) in New York, the actress will resume shooting for Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra. The trilogy by Karan Johar also features Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, Dimple Kapadia and Mouni Roy.
Post-Brahmastra, she will be seen with Salman Khan in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah. The actress will be romancing the Dabangg actor for the first time and people have huge expectations from this unusual love story. But that’s not all on Alia’s platter. The 26-year-old is also making her debut down South with RRR featuring Ajay Devgn, Jr NTR and Ram Charan. Last but not the least, Alia will be working on Karan Johar’s Takht as well. The multi-starrer has Anil Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Janhvi Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar in key role.
Shilpa Shetty Kundra launched her own fitness app at an event in the suburbs a few days ago. The event was held in the presence of the media during which Shilpa not only demonstrated some yoga asanas but also answered questions about the same to create awareness.
Shilpa Shetty Kundra is one big bundle of energy. Her enthusiasm is contagious and her sense of humour and cuteness often win our hearts. Shilpa’s expressions and her comic timing are way to hilarious which we adore to bits. Shilpa is also one hell of a fitness freak and her hourglass figure is drool-worthy. A few days ago, Shilpa Shetty Kundra launched her own fitness app at an event in the suburbs. The event was held in the presence of the media during which Shilpa not only demonstrated some yoga asanas but also answered questions about the same to create awareness. The actress said as just working out or practicing yoga is not enough, the app she launched also has a dietary counseling section. The Bollywood actress is a known yoga enthusiast and is often seen promoting the practice.
While interacting with the media at the event, Shilpa was seen at her humorous best and the video of her interaction will surely make you laugh out loud. In the clip, Shilpa can be seen laughing along with them and cracking jokes. She is also pulling the leg of a few photographers and it’s too funny to see her childlike naughty behaviour. Shilpa also revealed the secret of her youthful physique, being the adorable goofball that she is, Shilpa jokingly said, “If you want to stay young forever, do Yoga.” Not only did she perform the asanas, she also made the shutterbugs do the deep breathing exercise.
Meanwhile, the actress is currently seen as a super judge on a dance-based reality TV show, Super Dancer Chapter 3. She shares the judge panel with Anurag Basu and Geeta Kapur. The third leg of the show is nearing its finale. From the video, we did gather that Shilpa will be performing at the finale event as she hinted at the rehearsals for the show.
Reportedly, the actress will set the finale stage on fire with her performance. Shilpa will perform on songs like ‘Titli’ from Chennai Express, ‘Muqabala’ from ABCD, ‘Aithe Aa’ from Bharat and Ghoomar for Padmaavat. And not only that, Shilpa will also perform Bharatnatyam on the stage, it’s going to be epic finale this time for Super Dancer, don’t you think?
Talking about her performance, Shilpa told an online portal, “I am performing Bharatnatyam after 25 years in my entire dancing career. It was by choice that I didn’t perform Bharatnatyam on the small screen. While preparing for the act, I was very nervous as I rarely do any stage performance. I get such opportunities once in a year when I am part of dance reality shows like Super Dancer. In the show, contestants like Dhairya Tandon and Anwesha Bhataiya have brought a different level of classical tadka in their dancing which somewhere encouraged me to choose Bharatnatyam as my Grand Finale performance.
Did you know Parineeti Chopra was supposed to do Shoojit Sircar’s Piku, which released in 2015? Well, many of you were not aware of the same as us. The Namaste England herself revealed it when she made an appearance on Neha Dhupia’s chat show with her best friend and ace tennis player, Sania Mirza. In conversation with Neha, Pari revealed that she could have been Sircar’s Piku instead of Deepika Padukone in the film which also featured Irrfan Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. Pari went on to explain how things didn’t work in her favour saying, “I didn’t really turn down the film… there was confusion. I was going to do another film at the same time and then that film also didn’t happen, so it was my loss.”
Drifting apart from her professional front, Parineeti Chopra turned a love-guru on Neha’s show and gave some advice to her single co-stars in Bollywood- Aditya Roy Kapur and Sidharth Malhotra. Giving them a tip or two, Pari said, “I think both of them are not really in the space to commit right now so they should continue what they’re doing and when they’re ready, they should only have a permanent girlfriend. I know them, and I speak to them about these things.”
The 30-year-old added that one should not give in the peer-pressure and get married soon. And asserted that she would give the same advice to both Aditya and Sidharth. “I would say this to Sid and Adi also, do it when you’re ready. Don’t do it just because everybody else is,” said Parineeti.
When asked if she would give the same advice to her Namaste England co-star Arjun Kapoor, Parieenti quipped, ” I cannot tell Arjun anything. Woh apni life ka malik hai. Wo jo karta hai, he does it when he wants to do it.” Well, we hope Aditya and Sidharth are listening and Arjun doesn’t have to as he is apni life ka malik.
