New Delhi : A new controversy emerged yesterday owing to the statements of a Pakistani actress. A throwback video of Saba Qamar resurfaced on the Internet in which she called Salman Khan a chhichora. Minutes after the video came, much was written about it and she also received flak for saying nasty things about Bollywood. Now, Saba has defended her words and said it was all in good jest.
When news agency IANS, questioned Saba about her statements she said Koffee With Karan also shows something similar. Saba said, It was a fun show… There was nothing in it… ‘Koffee With Karan’ mein kya kuchh nahi hota (What all does not happen on ‘Koffee With Karan’)… I love everyone, and he’s (Salman) a big superstar and so humble. Why would I say anything bad about him?
Now we wonder if Saba’s U-turn happened because the hatred she received or she was genuinely talking about things in a fun way.Apart from Salman, Saba also said not so amazing things about other Bollywood celebrities. When she was shown a photo of Emraan Hashmi on the chat show Good Morning Zindagi, Saba said she didn’t want to get mouth cancer by working with him. On asked about working with Riteish Deshmukh, Saba said she is a huge star in Pakistan and wouldn’t work with someone who wasn’t an A-lister. She, however, was all happy to work with Ranbir Kapoor when was shown her picture.IANS

Mumbai : Jolly LLB 2 starring Akshay Kumar has collected Rs 13.20 cr on first day. Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted,” #JollyLLB2 Fri ₹ 13.20 cr. India biz… Merits coupled with +ve word of mouth should help garner a lucrative total on Sat and Sun.”
The rare on-screen teaming up of Akshay Kumar, Annu Kapoor and Saurabh Shukla was surely going to be a unique concoction of laughter and drama. And as the reviews are still pouring in, a unanimous positive word of mouth seems to be building around Akshay Kumar’s film. Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh earlier observed, “Akshay Kumar’s winning streak will continue with #JollyLLB2… Extremely positive reports pouring in… Should hit the bull’s eye.” Jolly LLB 2 has already recovered its cost, according to trade analyst Joginder Tuteja. The film was made on a budget of Rs 45 crores including –Rs 30 crore for Cost of Production and Rs 15 crore on P&A (promotions and advertisement). Jolly LLB 2 has already earned Rs 45 crore from the sales of satellite, music and digital rights of the film.This implies that Akshay Kumar movie will start earning profits from day 1.Akshay Kumar has always maintained that he completes a movie in 40-45 days, which turns out be beneficial for producer and the entire film unit. The completion of the film within a tight schedule and budget eventually benefits the entire film. The actor completed this movie in 33 days. In comparison, several Bollywood movies starring huge stars can take around one to two years for completion. While the cost of a Khan film is around Rs 80-100 crore, Akshay’s films are made at half the budget.
The actor’s 2016 films – Airlift, Rustom and Housefull 3–reflect a versatility. Unlike Khans, Akshay has been more inclined to play a ‘common man’ and doing more ‘event-based’ films. Airlift, Baby and Rustom are a few examples of films being inspired by real events. His movies of late also have some elements of patriotism and loyalty.Akshay Kumar has always maintained that he completes a movie in 40-45 days, which turns out be beneficial for producer and the entire film unit.

New Delhi : Kareena Kapoor Khan recently turned heads at the grand finale of Lakme Fashion Week where she was the showstopper for Anita Dongre.
The new mommy looked gorgeous as she walked the ramp in a shimmery gold outfit, 46 days after the birth of her first baby, son Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi.
Kareena Kapoor Khan, who was the showstopper for Anita Dongre, looked stunning in a beautiful gold and white ensemble created by the ace designer as she provided a memorable grand finale of the Lakme Fashion Week.
And while we are still in awe of Kareena’s dazzling appearance at the finale, the hot mommy opened up on the controversy surrounding her son’s name talking to media at the Lakme Fashion Week.She spoke to a leading daily about the controversy surrounding Taimur’s name and here’s what Bebo said: It was bizarre. I have no idea why people took my baby’s name so personally. But we love the name and let me put it this way — it has no resemblance to any person living or dead. We love the meaning and I am happy that [some] people came out in support of us so strongly. That support matters more than anything bad that was said or written.
On a related note, ever since Kareena’s baby was born, social media trolls went into a frenzy over the baby’s name- Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor‘s new born’s name was mistaken for a Turco-Mongol conqueror from the 14th century, who was also the founder of the Timurid Empire in Persia, but it actually just means iron in Arabic.
