It’s been more than a month since Sunil Grover left The Kapil Sharma Show and since then a lot has been speculated about his next stint. Some reports states it will be another TV show on rival channel, some suggest on the same and now the latest one suggests it to be a film. Yes, according to reports by Mumbai Mirror, recently Anurag Basu was the guest judge on Sabse Bada Kalakar, where Sunil Grover and Ali Asgar performed a special act. The filmmaker was overheard mentioning the actor-comedian to one of the show’s unit members after “thoroughly enjoying” his special gag. According to a source from the show, Anurag believes Sunil is one of the most underrated actors in the industry and can do wonders if given a well-sketched role in films.

A source further revealed, “He might approach Sunil for one of his upcoming films and write an interesting role for him.”

In an earlier interview to Mirror, Sunil had said, “I am open to doing more films because I’m not a comedian. It’s very difficult to be one. I am an actor who makes caricatures out of characters.”

Recently Sunil Grover had a surprise in store for judge of the acting reality show Raveena Tandon. Sunil came on stage as Akshay Kumar from Mohra and shook a leg with Raveena Tandon on the famous song ‘Cheeze Badi Hein Mast Mast’. The actress was taken back to the days of shooting and lived it yet again. A source from the set informs, “As soon a Sunil Grover started dancing on ‘Cheez Badi Hein Mast Mast’, Raveena Tandon was quick to join him on stage and shake a leg. The actress also mentioned that she relived the famous song from Mohra all over again, thanks to Sunil Grove aka Dr. Mashoor Gulati.”

Sunil Grover to host Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega on Sony?

Even as speculations are rife about Sunil Grover being offered new shows by various channels, we hear that he has been approached to host the upcoming season of Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega. Sources say the reality show that was last aired in 2014 will be back this year with its sixth season. “Anu Malik and Farah Khan are likely to continue as judges, though the makers are looking at bringing in some more people. After the Kapil Sharma-Sunil fight, the channel has promised Sunil that they will offer him any upcoming show. So, there are chances of him hosting this show, which is slated to air post IPL in June,” informs a source. The last season was hosted by Krushna Abhishek and Mona Singh.


What’s next for Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar after Comedy Nights?
Sources say that Preeti Simoes, who parted ways with Kapil Sharma’s production house, is planning to produce a 26-episode series. “The show will have Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar who quit Kapil’s show. The only problem right now, is all of them are individually busy with their other commitments. Ali will be travelling, Sunil is intermittently performing shows and Chandan is busy with a Punjabi film. Once they get the time, they will sit together and decide on it. Preeti and the actors are being approached individually and together by various channels.”

While Kapil continues to shoot for the show and make money, it’s the others who are losing out `80 lakhs to a crore, only because they took a united stand against what happened with Sunil on the flight. “When Kapil celebrated 100 episodes of the show he should have ensured that the entire team participated in the celebrations. Kapil has his show and a film career to fall back on, but the others currently don’t have a regular income flowing in, so they need to take up a show soon.”

For the uninitiated, Sunil Grover has not been a part of The Kapil Sharma Show ever since the reported fight on the Air India plane from Melbourne to India. It seems Kapil Sharma got into a nasty argument with Chandan Prabhakar. When Sunil Grover intervened, he abused him in Punjabi and later even hurled a shoe at his colleague! The news of the spat made national headlines and Sunil has been missing since then. He recently almost clarified that he won’t be returning on the show and does not miss it.

Has Sony given a month’s ultimatum to Kapil Sharma to increase TRPs?

Kapil Sharma could be staring at bigger troubles coming his way soon. Struggling to keep his flock together, after his much talked about fight with team member Sunil Grover, reports suggest that the superstar of small screen has been asked to raise the TRPs of The Kapil Sharma Show, which he hosts. Sony, the channel which airs the popular chat show, has asked Kapil to come up with better gigs to raise the viewership.

Quoting a source, a report in The Times Of India suggests that Sharma has been given a month’s time to prove his worth and high remuneration. If things don’t improve, then the channel might take the show off-air. This isn’t an easy task as the other key members of Kapil Sharma’s formidable crew have decided to part ways with him.

Apart from Sunil Grover, Ali Asgar and Chandan Prabhakar also fetched a lot of TRPs for the show.

Though Sharma is trying his best to sustain the momentum, new comedians have failed to lift up the spirit of the fans.

Will Sunil Grover take Sony’s ‘no interaction with Kapil’ clause to come back?

Looks like Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover are in no mood to end their fight any time soon. Reports have now emerged that Sony (which airs The Kapil Sharma Show) is trying to get Sunil back and has even offered him a “no interaction with Kapil” clause.

According to a DNA report, Sunil has told the channel that they should accommodate him in other shows. “It’s not just Kapil’s show, even the channel has invested in it. Sunil has a contract with the channel and he cannot just leave it. He, on the other hand, has told them he doesn’t want to return to Kapil’s show, but they can utilise him for their other shows,” the report quoted a source as saying.

“That’s how he made an appearance in the finale of Indian Idol 9 as Dr Mashoor Gulati and Rinku Devi. However, the channel is still convincing him to return to Kapil’s show now. He has been told that if he comes back his interaction with Kapil will be minimum or not at all (Kapil won’t be in the frame when Sunil will be on stage). In the meantime, they have also told Kapil to mend bridges with Sunil. It’s a prime slot and the show has been popular, though lately it has suffered a setback due to the Sunil-Kapil fallout,” the source added.

“My intentions are to act and to entertain with dignity. For me, money can’t be the only reason to do something, or not to do something,” Sunil tweeted on Wednesday.

Confirmed! Raju Shrivastav replaces Sunil Grover on The Kapil Sharma Show

Raju Shrivastav

Raju Shrivastav

Don’t be surprised if you see Raju Shrivastav once again on The Kapil Sharma Show because it is confirmed that he is a part of it! After the whole Kapil Sharma – Sunil Grover debacle, the makers started scouting for new names to be associated with the show. The public fight of the two comedians has resulted in Grover quitting the show. And ever since then, a lot of folks from the industry have tried to tag their names with the show. Earlier it was Krushna Abhishek, who pushed aside all the cold war rumours and extended his support in this Kapil – Sunil tussle. However, it is Raju, the former Great Indian Laughter Challenge contestant, who has bagged a place in the show! He confirmed to NDTV that the dotted lines have been signed and that he will be in the show. “Yes, I have started shooting for this show. The channel and the team are happy with the episodes I have shot for them and have called me for more episodes,” he said.

Of course, he’s not going to take Sunil’s role as Dr Mashoor Gulati but he will be essaying an all new character. “I don’t know how the channel is going to represent my character or my acts to the audience. But this is true that I’m shooting for the show and will feature in the show as a ‘new entry’,” he added. Now Grover has already denied being a part of the show anytime soon. And looks like now the channel has found a replacement for him.

It all started when Kapil invited his Great Indian Laughter Challenge buddies to come as guests on his show right after the fight broke out. Shrivastav, Ahsaan Qureshi and Sunil Pal came to the show as guests. The old tricks of them trying to woo the audience and make them laugh failed as it seemed too stretched. But Raju begs to differ. He had all good words to speak for the show as well as his experience there. “I had a good time on the show. It was like a mini reunion. I am a comedian and like to make people laugh. I just need a stage. If they call me, I will surely go back.”

We have already seen a glimpse of what it would be like if the comedian signs the dotted lines for The Kapil Sharma show. But wasn’t Raju supposed to patch things up between Kapil and Sunil? He even had plans to make both the comedians sit together, sort their differences out, right? What happened to all that thinking? He answered that too as he said, “I was hopeful of bringing them together last week, but Sunil is out of town. I am waiting for him to return.” Well, with the latest tweet by Grover, it is pretty evident that he doesn’t wish to reconcile anytime sooner.

What are your thoughts on this, BollywoodLifers?

Phillauri box office collection day 2: Anushka Sharma-Diljit Dosanjh starrer witnesses growth on its second day, earns Rs 9.22 crore



Anushka Sharma’s Phillauri has witnessed a growth of around 30 per cent on its second day, all thanks to the star power of Diljit Dosanjh in the North, mainly East Punjab and Delhi. The film has earned Rs 5.20 crore on its second day as compared to Rs 4.02 crore, the first day it earned. Talking about the film’s collection Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Phillauri is STRONG in North, the key contributor… Biz saw growth on Sat… Sun crucial… Fri 4.02 cr, Sat 5.20 cr. Total: ₹ 9.22 cr.” As we mentioned yesterday, the film is only performing in North and Anushka Sharma should thanks Diljit for that. Despite getting mixed to negative reviews, the film as performing on the levels of much bigger releases like Raees, Jolly LLB 2 and Badrinath Ki Dulhania.

The two day opening of the film is better than Anushka Sharma’s previous production NH10 but that film sailed through in the long run through strong word of mouth, which is not the case here. Phillauri is expected to show similar growth on Sunday and at the end it will all boil down to Monday. The film really has to show a strong hold once the weekend ends, if it hopes to do well in a long run.

BollywoodLife critic Sreeju Sudhakaran in his review had stated, “Phillauri has some spirited performance from its lead actors, unfortunately, the same spirit has not gone into the making of the movie. What’s started off as a promising film ends up as a boring and a tiresome hotchpotch by the end. Going by the nearly empty theatre hall where I watched the movie and the muted response the movie received at the end, I am sure #ShashiWasThere is actually scaring people away from the screens. Highly Avoidable!”

Fans feel the Sunil Grover fiasco has cost Kapil Sharma his image!

Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover

Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover

Two days back, someone said that it seemed like an evil eye had fallen on Kapil Sharma. Well, with no signs of a reconciliation with Sunil Grover being visible and people commenting that the curtains will fall on The Kapil Sharma Show soon, it seems sad but true. The general opinion is that Kapil Sharma’s wholesome image has taken a huge dent after the alleged mid-air spat that ruined his relationship with Sunil Grover, Chandan Prabhakar and Ali Asghar. The public has expressed its disappointment that the star comedian who charmed one and all with his talent, humility and common man connect has supposedly developed a very arrogant and high-handed attitude.

After Sunil Grover in his dignified yet scathing tweet told Kapil not to behave like God and remember what made him successful in the first place, people sided with him. We all know how Sunil supported Kapil on earlier occasions and this time everyone was on Dr Mashoor Gulati’s side. The comedian did not shoot for the last episode of The Kapil Sharma Show and it is understandable as we can imagine how hurt he might be. He is now taking some time off before he can make the decision.

For the uninitiated, last Saturday the story broke out that Kapil Sharma who was allegedly sloshed on an Air India flight back from Australia had a horrible argument with Sunil Grover. Some reports even said that he threw a shoe at him for eating before him! We know all this sounds extremely shocking, unbelievable and nonsensical at the same time but that is the way it is. It happened on the same morning when Kapil Sharma introduced his girlfriend Ginni Chatrath to the world. Many are now saying it was a move to divert attention from this reported sordid fight on the plane. Whatever it is…Kapil seems to have to work really hard to reclaim back lost fans and glory!

This Ex-Bigg Boss Contestant Will Be Seen Opposite Ranbir Kapoor In Sanjay Dutt’s Biopic

Karishma Tanna

Karishma Tanna

Sanjay Dutt‘s biopic starring Ranbir Kapoor is garnering a lot of interest, unsurprisingly, as the actor’s life was quite eventful. I am really looking forward to see how director Rajkumar Hirani and Ranbir bring Sanju baba‘s character to life on the big screen.

Dia Mirza will be reportedly essaying the role of Maanyata Dutt, and we hear that Sonam Kapoor will be playing Tina Munim, while Anushka Sharma will be seen as a lawyer. Now we hear that Karishma Tanna has also been roped in to play one of the female leads in the film. Although the details of her character are not known to us, she has reportedly shot for her role over a 3-day schedule in the Malabar Hills.

It would be interesting to see Karishma and Ranbir romance onscreen. Are you looking forward to this jodi?

10 STARTLING revelations made by Kangana Ranaut on Koffee With Karan 5

Karan Johar,Kangana Ranaut

Karan Johar,Kangana Ranaut

t so happened that Karan Johar decided to call the Queen of Bollywood Kangana Ranaut on his popular chat show Koffee With Karan 5 and well, she OWNED the show. Kangy is known for making bold statements and Karan’s show is known to stir up a controversy everytime its aired. So when the sassy Kangana appeared on Karan’s show, fireworks were bound to happen! Kangana was at her sassiest best on the show and well, without any further ado, let me take you through some interesting revelations she made on Koffee with Karan 5.

The Aditya Chopra comment 

“A year ago, I remember Aditya Chopra called me to his studio, we sat across the table and he told me ’10 years ago when you came to my office with Rikku Rakesh Nath, iss ladki ka kuch nhi hone wala. Today I am so glad to tell you that I was so wrong. You have made it and you have made it on your own. I am very happy about it.”

About Karan mocking her..

KJo went on to say that initially he was also of the same opinion as Aditya Chopra. When Karan said, “I also never thought anything would happen. She was lovely in Gangster and then there were certain choices that happened which is sometimes destiny and sometimes circumstance related.” Kanga retorted back saying, “Of course you made fun of my English on this couch and you made fun of everything.”

About having friends in the industry  

“Not really. Initially I did and it got complicated. Friendships at work have only harmed me and my work.”

Her take on creative conflicts (with reference to filmmakers)

“Creative conflicts are a part of the craft and I don’t have a problem with that at all. It’s not about doing something that they want you to do and pleasing people. I think directors like me for contradicting them and for those who don’t, well, I don’t like them either.”

On Fawad Khan

When Karan made a revelation on the show that it was Saif who was offered Fawad Khan’s role in Kapoor & sons, Kangana was shocked. She said, “I would have loved to see you (Saif) do the role. I love Fawad. He was really good.”

On Dangal’s success

While taking Koffee shots, Karan happened to ask both Saif and Kangy if they had been jealous of any other actor’s succes. So Kangana openly confessed how she was jealous when she got to know of Aamir Khan’s Dangal making a whooping 700 crore (approx) at the box office.

On her biopic 

“In my biopic, if it ever gets made, you will play that typical Bollywood biggie who is snooty and completely intolerant to outsiders, flag-bearer of nepotism, movie mafia…”

Shah Rukh, Salman, Aamir – who is on Kangana’s wishlist?

“Not Shah Rukh, not Salman, not Aamir.”

About Shahid

“Shahid is extremely moody. There are days he would be in a very good mood get breakfast from home for the entire cast and crew and then there are days when he’s in an equally bad mood. He will look at you as if you’re a suicide bomber.”

On working with Alia Bhatt

“I would like to work with Alia bhatt next.”

Koffee With Karan 5: Kangana Ranaut Accused Karan Johar Of Nepotism

Kangana Ranaut, Saif Ali Khan

Kangana Ranaut, Saif Ali Khan

Kangana Ranaut will finally grace the “Koffee Kouch” with her Rangoon co-stars Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor (who will join them later). It’s almost certain that the episode is going to be a firecracker considering the guest list includes Kangana – and we are REALLY excited about that.

Unsurprisingly, Kangana totally nailed the episode and did not even spare Karan Johar with her remarks! According to a report in DNA, a source revealed that the fiery actress told KJo that if she ever writes a biography, she will make sure it has a chapter on nepotism written by him. She reportedly made several other statements that left Karan absolutely tongue tied.

Well well, that’s Kangana for you! And we love you for being you, Kangana!
