Sunil Grover gets OPEN INVITE from AIB post Kapil Sharma fight!

Posted on 28 March 2017 by GGS News

New Delhi : We all know about the face off between Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover. So much has been said by so many over the course of last one week. The latest ones to pitch in to the controversy are members of AIB. Rohan Joshi and Ashish Shakya, on the latest episode of On Air With AIB, issued an open invite to Sunil urging him to join them. They ensured Sunil that no one in their group gets reduced to crossdressing for the sake of comedy, and that they are a ‘smart and funny’ comedy group. AIB also, funnily, ensured Sunil that they only throw pillows at each other on planes, and not shoes, taking a dig at the whole controversy.

In all honesty, AIB and Sunil might just make a killer combo. Sunil’s sense of humour is more evolved and polished than we know of. It is sad the kind of level his talent was watered down to on The Kapil Sharma Show, or else he is capable of achieving much more. Maybe collaborating with AIB might just be what they say an opportunity knocking on the door. And if I may take the liberty to act as a fanboy a little, I am already excited about this little collab between the two comic talents in my head!Also, as per the latest news, there is more to Kapil and Sunil’s face off than we know of. Ever wondered how the details of their mid-air fight became public? Well, turns out it was no one else but someone close to Kapil and showrunner Preeti Simoes who spilled the beans to the media. So far, there has been no sign of reconciliation shown by Sunil, or other members of the TV troupe, except for Kapil. The Kapil Sharma Show is safe for another Sunday, as the next one will be actively dedicated to airing the grand finale of Indian Idol. But the Sunday after that? It will be interesting to see how TKSS survives with no new episodes taped with the entire cast! Now that is called a plot.

Kapil Sharma case: Bombay HC stays FIR against comedian, directs BMC to resolve dispute

Posted on 23 March 2017 by GGS News

Delhi : The Bombay High Court on Thursday stayed the FIR against actor-comedian Kapil Sharma that had been registered over allegations of illegal construction in Sharma’s Goregaon flat.

The Court’s decision came after the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) informed a bench led by Justice Naresh Patil that it had decided to withdraw all litigation from the lower court against Sharma and actor Irrfan Khan over alleged illegal construction in the actors’ respective flats in a Goregaon highrise.
The Court also directed Sharma, Khan, and other petitioners in the case to file within two weeks, a reply addressing BMC’s allegations. It directed all parties to resolve the issue within five weeks.

The bench also directed the Corporation to grant a “personal hearing” to Sharma.

The bench was hearing a bunch of petitions filed by Sharma, Khan, two other flat owners, and the developer of the building, DLH Pvt Ltd.

The petitioners had challenged a demolition notice issued by the corporation in September last year, claiming that the same was arbitrary and illegal.

Kapil Sharma opens up about ‘rift’ with ‘elder brother’ Sunil Grover

Kapil Sharma opens up about ‘rift’ with ‘elder brother’ Sunil Grover

Posted on 20 March 2017 by GGS News

Mumbai : Few hours after introducing his lady love Ginni to the world through social media, Kapil Sharma came in news once again for all the wrong reasons.
While returning from Melbourne and Sydney after performing a stage show, an incident took place when Sunil was seated on his seat and Kapil suddenly walked up to him and allegedly started hurling abuses.
According to report, in no time he held Sunil by his collar and raised his hand on Sunil. The actor, who plays Dr. Mashoor Gulati on the hit show didn’t respond to Kapil’s abuses and beating and stayed mum.The Kis Kis Ko Pyaar Karoon actor was allegedly drunk and called Sunil names like Tu Mera Naukar hai, tere show flop tha…”. The entire team soon came to Sunil’s rescue and took Kapil away.
The whole internet has been speaking about this and now finally Kapil spoke about the same by putting a status on his Facebook this morning.He said “Hi.. good morning friends .. was celebrating my best time n suddenly I heard a news about me n sunil paji fighting.. first of all see where it is coming from.. what r the intentions behind this.. if I fought with him in the flight then who saw it n informed u.. is he trustworthy..? Some people enjoy these kind of stuff.. we eat together .. we travel together.. I meet my brother once in a year.. n spending almost everyday with my team.. specially sunil .. I love him.. I respect him.. yes I had a argue with him.but r we not normal people..?I shouted at him first time in 5 years .. itna to chalta hai bhai. we will sit n talk that where is the problem.. I love him as a artist as a human being.. he is like my elder brother.. why so much negativity all the time.. I respect our media.. there r some other serious issues which we need to focus. Is me n sunil’s issue is so important n realted with the security of my country ..? We spend a lot of time together rather then our families .. n sometime it happens in family.. its our family matter.. we will sort this out.. zyada maze mat liya karoo. OK now m tired typing .. n one more thing.. I m going for the final schedule of Firangi. Hahahahaha.. sorry again promotion.. thank u so much for ur love n blessings… keep smiling n stay happy always :)) love u all”According to Kapil, this was the first time he shouted at Sunil in 5 years and still love and respect him. The actor also made sure to promote his movie ‘Firangi’ while speaking about the issue.
Sources close to The Kapil Sharma Showinformed us that Sunil is very hurt with Kapil’s disrespectful behaviour and is in no mood to return to the show. It is not the first time that the TKSS host has behaved in such a manner. It has now become a matter of respect for Sunil and it would be beyond his dignity to stay back on the show as he was not at fault.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania movie review: Varun Dhawan’s performance steals the show, Alia Bhatt’s act leaves indelible impact

Badrinath Ki Dulhania movie review: Varun Dhawan’s performance steals the show, Alia Bhatt’s act leaves indelible impact

Badrinath Ki Dulhania movie review: Varun Dhawan’s performance steals the show, Alia Bhatt’s act leaves indelible impact

Mumbai :

Badrinath Ki Dulhania
Cast: Varun Dhawan, Alia Bhatt
Director: Shashank Khaitan
Rating: 2.5/5

Badrinath Ki Dulhania begins as a cute sweet love story between a Jhansi boy and a Kota girl, but the director understands the current tide of films that celebrate powerful, liberated women, so it transforms into a progressive story before turning cute-sweet again.

Badrinath Bansal (Varun Dhawan) is your gym-type boy-next-door. Slightly outspoken but mostly lovable. He may remind you of Govinda of the early ‘90s: Scheming, harmless, quick-witted and conventional. He belongs to a family that suffocates under his dominating father Amarnath Bansal’s (Rituraj Singh) thumb. Badrinath’s prime duty is to collect debt on behalf of his wealthy, patronising father.His heart skips a beat in a chance encounter with Vaidehi (Alia Bhatt) at a wedding. She is an ambitious, career-oriented woman who’s nursing a broken heart. Once bitten, twice shy, she isn’t looking for a healing touch, especially from another suitor.

Director Shashank Khaitan, who had an impressive debut in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania (2014), begins coating his otherwise predictable story with funny, ironic plots from here on. If Vaidehi is rebellious, Badri is hot-headed. It’s like walking on a razor’s edge because they need to match steps with the current scenario and also carry the weight of typical, commercial Bollywood.

It could also be the most convenient way out. The boy will follow a patriarchal curve and change only after falling in love. The onus to change him rests on the girl’s shoulders. It’s not an automatic process for Bollywood yet. This has been happening in mainstream Hindi films since time immemorial.However, to Khaitan’s credit, he has carved out Vaidehi’s character really fine. She speaks her mind when needed, but the social pressure is too much to cope with so she decides to opt out of the game when she was supposed to take a decisive step.

It’s an important juncture in the story, and Khaitan probably had to delve deep into it. The real urgency to leave a social set-up hasn’t been conveyed well.

Bhatt tries to make up for what the screenplay fails to bring out with her dialogues and pauses. She emerges as a confident woman who chooses respect over love. She doesn’t mince her words and says it in as many words: That love is nothing without respect.

Bhatt steals the show, again.

On the other hand, Dhawan seems to be highly influenced by Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar’s popular image: Be nice to the girl, but rest assured that she will accept you sooner or later. It’s like Kapil Sharma’s show where you laugh at his jokes targeting Sumona but also worry about its implications.Discrepancies in screenplay don’t help either. In order to keep up a fast pace, the story hops locations. It appears that the filmmakers succumbed to the conventional demand to feature an exotic, shooting-friendly location rather than being guided by the script. So the story moves from Jhansi to Singapore via Mumbai. Sahil Vaid, Badri’s English-fearing friend, grabs his chance here and shines.

But Badrinath Ki Dulhania remains the breeding ground of love between its two leads. It’s a Dharma film after all.

On second thoughts, it works in favour of the film because of Dhawan and Bhatt’s sparkling chemistry. Their camaraderie is visible in the songs, especially in the new-age rendition of Tamma Tamma Loge, which for a change, sounds as foot-tapping as the original.

But Khaitan loses his grip before the high-voltage finale. In the end, he submits to cheesy-funny ‘dialoguebaazi’. That could help him in evoking some whistles, but it dilutes the purpose of featuring an ‘emancipated woman’.Still, Badrinath Ki Dulhania has its moments, especially the comic ones. Dhawan and Vaid show impeccable timing, but overall the film belongs to Alia Bhatt.

This film may not offer a substantial take on any cause, but it is one of the many that take the debate forward. Being mainstream will only help it.

Suchitra Karthik LEAKS private pictures of Dhanush, Hansika Motwani and other south stars; claims Twitter account hacked!

Posted on 04 March 2017 by GGS News

Mumbai : Cyber crime could be extremely menacing, especially when you are always in the spotlight and an alleged internet bully leaks your private pictures on social media. Now, the people in question are superstars of South Indian film industry- Dhanush, Trisha Krishnan, Hansika Motwani, Anirudh Ravichander.
These pictures of the stars, some of them snapped in an inebriated state, were uploaded from singer Suchitra Karthik’s Twitter account, who is rumoured to be at loggerheads with Dhanush.
However, minutes after uploading the photos, Suchitra deleted the snaps and has clarified that her account was yet again hacked.
She wrote: Account hacked again guys. Sorry bout all this. I can only request whoever thinks I’m posting crap, to unfollow me. Coz this is happening way too often and even I’m a bit annoyed now.
“Please guys – I don’t even socialiZe with actors, I don’t have any of their pictures. More than anything – I am not a mean person. The person who is doing this, wants me to deactivate my acct. I’ll do that in a second. But I know I have ppl here who genuinely like me,” added the singer who cleared her name in a series of tweets without apologising to the stars whose pictures the alleged hacker leaked online.

Suchitra also insinuated that the hacker is one of the actors from those pictures. “Verified info: apparently Mr Hacker thinks – by including a picture of himself in the leaked pix, he won’t invite suspicion on himself. ½,” she wrote.
