Salman Khan’s song ‘Suno Gaur Se Duniya Walon’ used in Vivek Oberoi starrer PM Narendra Modi (Sat, 23 Mar 2019)
One of the much awaited films of recent times has to be the biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, titled PM Narendra Modi. Starring Vivek Oberoi, the film directed by Omung Kumar went on floors this year itself in January. The makers completed the film at a lightning speed and everyone is surprised that it is ready and all set to release, two weeks from now on April 5. Salman Khan’s song ‘Suno Gaur Se Duniya Walon’ used in Vivek Oberoi starrer PM Narendra Modi The casting of Vivek Oberoi as Modi led to some funny reactions. A section of netizens digged out a picture of the real Narendra Modi flying kite with superstar Salman Khan somewhere in 2014. Knowing the enmity or rather the cold war between Salman and Vivek since almost 15-16 years, people asked in lighter vein if their meeting will be shown in any scene in the biopic. In 2003, Vivek Oberoi held an infamous press conference wherein he publicly claimed that Salman Khan has been threatening him for dating actress Aishwarya Rai. Salman had an interest in her and hence Vivek got in his wrong books. Vivek after some time broke up with Aishwarya and his relations with Salman soured due to his press meet. Till date, Salman Khan hasn’t forgiven him although Vivek has tried at some occasions to mend relations. Salman Khan’s song ‘Suno Gaur Se Duniya Walon’ used in Vivek Oberoi starrer PM Narendra Modi Those expecting recreation of Salman-Modi episode however need not be that disheartened. The team of the film today announced that two songs have recreated in their film. And one of the tracks is ‘Suno Gaur Se Duniya Walon’, a film from the 1997 unfinished film Dus. It starred none other than Salman Khan along with Sanjay Dutt and Raveena Tandon. As per reports, the film was almost complete when its director Mukul Anand passed away. But ‘Suno Gaur Se Duniya Walon’ had already made it to the television. It’ll be quite intriguing and interesting to now see Vivek Oberoi shaking a leg to this song or at least the song playing in the background with scenes featuring the actor! The other song taken in the film is ‘Ishwar Allah’ from the 1999 partition saga 1947: Earth, starring Aamir Khan, Nandita Das and Rahul Khanna. The team of the film had to make this announcement of the songs used in PM Narendra Modi after an unexpected controversy arose yesterday. Lyricist Javed Akhtar tweeted yesterday, complaining that he has been credited in the trailers when the fact is that he has never worked on the film! A few hours later, another songwriter Sameer Anjaan also tweeted the same grouse. Hence, the makers had to reveal that since Sameer wrote ‘Suno Gaur Se Duniya Walon’ and Javed Akhtar penned ‘Ishwar Allah’ they have been hence been duly mentioned in the trailer credit. Am shocked to find my name on the poster of this film. Have not written any songs for it ! pic.twitter.com/tIeg2vMpVG — Javed Akhtar (@Javedakhtarjadu) March 22, 2019 Mujhe hairat hai apana naam pm narendra Modi film me dekh karr , Maine aisi kisi film me koi gaana nahi likha hai .. — Sameer (@SameerAnjaan) March 22, 2019 Also Read: Javed Akhtar is SHOCKED to see his name in song credits in Vivek Oberoi starrer PM Narendra Modi

Shah Rukh Khan is on a sabbatical, can’t decide whether to sign a film or a web project next (Fri, 22 Mar 2019)
Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero failure at the box office has shaken him up and that is pretty much evident because he has NOT signed any other film after the Anand L Rai directorial. He also pulled himself out of Saare Jahan Se Acchcha and now is contemplating what to do next. It has been reported that Shah Rukh is essentially FLOODED with a lot of scripts but is taking his time to decide what project to embark on. He is on a sabbatical and is NOT in the mood to work on anything related to acting anytime soon. But despite this, it is alleged that he is considering a feature film and a web project too. There are two options for him currently but he is not very sure as to what he should go ahead with. We have exclusively told you that he is busy with production work and his company Red Chillies  Entertainment has partnered with Netflix to create web content for not one but 3 projects. Apart from this, he is basking in the glory of his last production Badla doing well at the box office. Recently screen writer Anjum Rajabali spoke about Zero failure at the FICCI Frames 2019 and how SRK was shaken up about it. He said, “Most of the times, when a film doesn’t connect in spite of the fact that the idea was good, director was talented and the stars were attractive, it is because the script has gone wrong. That is where we need to be investing in. Allow more space for the writing to really emerge. You have to cook it on a low gas. There is no pressure cooker writing, which takes place. If you are asking me, there was a problem with the script (of Zero). Himanshu (Sharma) is a very talented person but things go wrong sometimes. I don’t think he said no to Saare Jahan Se Achcha because of the space (angle). I think he is also pretty shaken up. He was banking a lot on that.” Web series or a film, we sure want to see SRK soon on screen.

According to reports he was earlier going to work on Shashank Khaitan’s thriller, Rannbhoomi, simultaneously but now he has changed his plans.

Akshay Kumar’s Kesari is next only to Gold; aims to score best first three days by surpassing 2.0 (Hindi) collections of Rs. 63.25 crore (Fri, 22 Mar 2019)
Kesari has taken a very good start at the Box Office. It is also quite special for Akshay Kumar because with the film, he has now registered the second best start ever in his career. The biggest so far is Gold which had accumulated Rs. 25.25 crore. It had seen an Independence Day release which was a huge advantage. That said, it had seen Satyameva Jayate as a major competition and that had evened out the advantage to a good extent. Akshay Kumar’s Kesari is next only to Gold; aims to score best first three days by surpassing 2.0 (Hindi) collections of Rs. 63.25 crore Now Kesari has arrived solo and though it does have some kind of advantage due to partial holiday of Holi, it practically saw a later afternoon start for itself since majority of theatres across the country were closed during morning and early afternoon due to festivities. Hence, the start of Rs. 21.06 crore that the film has taken is still quite good as from here on it would all about seeing further growth on Saturday and Sunday. Before Kesari and Gold, Akshay Kumar has seen two of his films go past the Rs. 20 crore mark, 2.0 (Hindi) [Rs. 20.25 crore] and Singh Is Bliing [Rs. 20.67 crore]. Former had arrived on a regular Friday, though it did have an advantage of being a sequel and also been heralded with the tag of 'the biggest and the costliest Indian film' ever made. On the other hand Singh Is Bliing had released on the national holiday of Gandhi Jayanti. In comparison, Kesari is pretty much a standalone film with no conventional 'hero heroine' or 'naach gaana' angle, and mainly bringing to fore a patriotic action drama. Also, Akshay Kumar had a job in hand to singlehandedly bring on audiences in theatres as there was no part for a heroine to play and no other notable actor in a supporting part either. Karan Johar made sure that from the marketing, promotion and release standpoint, Kesari saw a very good platform for itself, what with an arrival at 3600 screens. Now what has to be seen is how big the film grows from this point on. In their first three days, 2.0 [Hindi], Singh Is Bliing and Gold had collected Rs. 63.25 crore, Rs. 54.44 crore and Rs. 43.45 crore respectively. Now by the look of things, Kesari should manage to surpass them all comfortably, hence turning out to be the biggest of the lot.
