Salman Khan to resume filming for Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai from 2 October

After shooting In Karjat, near Mumbai for 15 days, the cast and crew of Radhe will return to Mehboob Studios in Bandra, Mumbai.

Salman Khan is set to resume filming for his upcoming action thriller film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai from 2 October.

Shooting for the feature began early November 2019 and was halted when the government declared a nationwide lockdown in March to contain COVID-19.

The shoot will be at ND Studios in Karjat, near Mumbai. After shooting there for 15 days, the cast and crew will return to Mehboob Studios in Bandra, Mumbai.

“A health and safety officer, along with a doctor and ambulance, will be stationed on the set. Signage and colour bands for bifurcation of the team will be followed, along with government mandates on insurance. A team of specially trained personnel has been inducted to dispose of the PPE kits and masks after use according to the guidelines provided,” producer Sohail Khan told The Times of India.

India Today writes that the makers have decided not to include any elderly actors and kids in this shooting schedule.

A hotel has been booked close to the studio in Karjat where all the crew will be residing. They will not be allowed to meet any outsiders for the duration of the shoot. The crew of the film has also been informed through a video about the protocols that they will have to follow on the set to avoid any last-minute confusions. A health and safety officer along with a doctor and ambulance will be at the set all the time during the shoot.

TOI quoted a source close to the development saying that the first round of COVID-19 tests on the crew have been negative. A second test will be done by those in proximity to set including actors and the core team.

Radhe will be the third collaboration between Salman and filmmaker Prabhu Deva, after Wanted and Dabangg 3. The cast also includes Randeep Hooda, Jackie Shroff and Disha Patani.

Meanwhile, Salman is also shooting for Colors TV reality show Bigg Boss 14, out on 3 October. Precautions are being taken to avert an outbreak of the virus in the Bigg Boss house.

BMC urges Bombay HC to dismiss Kangana Ranaut’s petition of seeking Rs 2 cr in damages

The BMC demolished a part of Kangana Ranaut’s Pali Hill bungalow, claiming that she had made substantial structural alterations without due permission.

Responding to actor Kangana Ranaut’s plea before the Bombay High Court seeking Rs 2 crore as damages for demolition at her bungalow, the Mumbai civic body said on Friday that it was an abuse of the process of law.

In an affidavit, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) urged the court to dismiss Ranaut’s petition and impose a cost on her for filing such a plea.

“The writ petition and the reliefs sought for therein constitute an abuse of process. The Petition should not be entertained and should be dismissed with costs,” it said.

On 9 September, the BMC demolished a part of Ranaut’s Pali Hill bungalow in Mumbai, claiming that she had made substantial structural alterations without due permission.

After she moved the HC on the same day, a bench led by Justice S J Kathawalla stayed the demolition.

On 15 September, Ranaut amended her plea, seeking a compensation of Rs 2 crore from the BMC.

In its reply, filed through advocate Joel Carlos, the BMC alleged that Ranaut falsely stated that the alterations were as per a permission previously granted by it.

On 5 September, during a routine inspection, its officials noticed illegal repairs and alterations being carried out at the bungalow, so a demolition notice was issued and the demolition was subsequently carried out, it said.

Ranaut used the property as office space and had made substantial alterations and additions in violation of the sanctioned Building Plan, the BMC alleged.

Toilets were constructed in parking areas and existing toilet space was converted into cabins and a pantry, it said.

Ranaut could not argue that the demolition should not have been carried out during the coronavirus-induced lockdown, for if she was carrying out alterations during this period, she was liable to face action, the civic body said.

The movie, touted as a “rebooted sequel” to the 2005 original, also features actors Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sharvari.

The film’s shoot was almost complete, except for a song sequence, before the coronavirus pandemic brought all the production activity to a stop.

The banner also shared a photo in which Khan, Mukerji, Siddhant Chaturvedi, and newcomer Sharvari are seen happily posing together in Yash Raj Films studio in suburban Mumbai.

Bunty Aur Babli 2 reunites Mukerji and Khan after 11 years.

Mukherji, who featured opposite Abhishek Bachchan in the original 2005 crime comedy, is reprising her role in the new movie.

Khan has replaced Bachchan as the titular Bunty.

Produced by Yash Raj Films, the film is being directed by Varun Sharma, who has previously worked as an assistant director on YRF blockbusters Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai.

According to the makers, the sequel takes a time leap of a decade and will feature two pairs of the eponymous con duo — Mukerji and Khan, and Siddhant and Sharvari.

PUBG ban: Diljit Dosanjh impresses fans with meme on Chinese gaming app

While responding to fans over the PUBG ban, Dosanjh said he would rather play SUB-G in the kitchen than playing the popular combat game

The ban on popular combat game PUBG has created ripples on the internet as game lovers shared their despair over the government’s move, while many are just making the most of the opportunity to crack up memes.

Actor and singer Diljit Dosanjh also shared a meme that featured him and actor Akshay Kumar.

Both the actors who have worked together in the hit comedy Good Newwz, were seen smiling in the picture. The meme creator posed the actors as the parents and the government who seemed to be happy after the addictive combat game was banned by the government.

This resulted in multiple Twitter users asking Dosanjh whether he played the popular game. The GOAT singer’s reply to one of the users was also pretty hilarious, and got a lot of traction on Twitter.

Weeks ago, a clip from TV show Saath Nibhana Saathiya went viral as netizens turned a seemingly serious episode into mock rap on techno beats.

Meanwhile, Dosanjh’s fellow star in the meme, Akshay Kumar made an announcement earlier today. The actor presented an action game called the Fearless And United-Guards or FAU-G. Launching the look of the game, Kumar said that the game was created under the aegis of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s AtmaNirbhar movement.

Kumar said that players, apart from being entertained, will be able to learn more about the sacrifices of our soldiers while playing this game. Also, 20 percent of the “net revenue generated” from the game will be donated to a trust called Bharat Ke Veer.

Actor-producer Anushka Sharma and Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli took to social media and announced that they were expecting their first child. In their respective posts, the two shared the same photo and wrote, “And then, we were three!

The unwatchable Xpose, where Irrfan tries saving the show

Himesh Reshammiya and Yo Yo Honey Singh’s The Xpose (2014) had a surprise package in Irrfan. And the only thing that got us through this 113 minutes of torture.

The first thing that comes to mind when the words ‘The Xpose’ are uttered, is the song Ice Cream Khaungi, Kashmir Jaungi. And like the whole of this 113-minute film – which is a film about films and the movie industry – the lyrics make no sense. Several questions through this unputdownable plate of desi Chinese were left unanswered. Like for example, if Himesh Reshammiya’s character Ravi Kumar suffered a kidney problem – he did give us a hint when he said, “Tumhare sharir mein utna khoon nahin jitna Ravi Kumar ekbaar mein moot deta hai.” Or why Yo Yo Honey Singh’s character KD, a name and profession clearly borrowed from RD (Burman), rapped in the 60s? Or why he was sporting the Sadhna haircut when the women in the film.

Fan asks Shahid Kapoor about Kiara Advani, actor responds in Kabir Singh style: Kisne touch kiya?

Shahid Kapoor held a Q&A session on Instagram where a fan asked the actor to describe his Kabir Singh co-star Kiara Advani in one word. Shahid’s answer was noteworthy.

Remember the scene where Preeti Sikka was harassed during a Holi celebration in Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Kabir Singh? Shahid Kapoor’s character, Kabir Singh came barging in and asked, “Kisne touch kiya usko…?” While the dialogue has been used in various memes since the release of the film, it seems like Shahid doesn’t want you to forget it and move on.

Shahid recently held a Q&A session for his fans on Instagram. In the session, the Kabir Singh actor was asked to describe his co-star Kiara Advani in one word.

Shahid shared his answer on his Instagram story along with the fan’s question, saying, “Kisne touch kiya…?

The dialogue found its way into the meme universe in October last year, when a netizen wrote ‘Preeti’ on his mobile charger and shared the photo on Twitter saying, “Ab koi mera charger touch nahi karega.”

The meme was noticed by Kiara and she responded saying, “Hahaha, one of the best ones,” in her Insta story back then.

The ‘kisne touch kiya’ dialogue has also become a new viral meme at the time when India, along with the world at large, is fighting against the novel coronavirus, by giving social distancing a new meaning.

In the film, Shahid essayed the role of Kabir Singh, a medical student with significant anger management issues, who falls in love with Preeti Sikka, his college junior. Preeti’s character was essayed by Kiara Advani. Despite receiving negative reviews from critics, Kabir Singh enjoys a massive fan-following.

On the work front, Shahid Kapoor will be seen in the upcoming film Jersey, although the shoot of the film has been halted as of now due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Kiara Advani recently appeared on the Netflix show Guilty and now has films like Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and Laxmmi Bomb in her kitty.
