Ajay Devgan’s next production to bring Farhan Akhtar and Sanjay Dutt onscreen for the first time?

Amid their busy work schedules, there is a strong buzz that Farhan Akhtar and Ajay Devgan might have signed a project as lead actors. In fact, it is being said that the film is being produced by Ajay Devgan himself, whose last venture, Shivaay was a hit. Ajay seems to have become the next big star to join the trend started by Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, which is about producing films starring other actors. According to a source, as quoted by DNA, “The movie will be directed by Nishikant Kamat. He worked with Ajay in Drishyam. The two collaborate for this film, which goes on the floors in October. Ajay is expanding his production house and wants to produce more films. Since he can’t work in all of them, he will cast whoever fits the bill. He is also backing a biopic on the life of Baba Ramdev that will be made for the small screen.”

Well, this comes right after Salman Khan’s announcement about his next production venture along with Karan Johar, starring Akshay Kumar, and Shah Rukh Khan’s project Ittefaq, directed by Abhay Chopra. Well, it does seem like a best step for Ajay’s company. Meanwhile, Ajay for now is busy with the shooting of Golmaal Again. The fourth installment in the Golmaal series, also starring Parineeti Chopra and Tabu among others, is currently in its last schedule. Arshad Warsi, one of the core members of the film, wrote, “last schedule of Golmaal has started… the madness begins again.”

On the other hand, Sanjay Dutt has his own projects to finish this year. The actor is all set to make a comeback on screen with Bhoomi, directed by Omung Kumar, after which, he will begin shooting for Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster’s third part. He also has Munna Bhai Chale America in loop.

Farhan too has his own projects in hand. The actor has finished the shooting of Lucknow Central and for now is celebrating some quality time with his daughter.

Farhan Akhtar to turn boxer for Mohit Suri’s next – read details here

After Half Girlfriend, director Mohit Suri is working on his next film, in which he teams up with Farhan Akhtar for the first time. While he has a couple of concepts in mind, he is keen on making one about a father-son relationship, which he has also penned. The film has boxing as its backdrop. Farhan has started prepping and building his body for this film. Set in two time zones, Farhan will first play the son, and later, father to a young kid.

Close to real life
Mohit confirms that he’s also directing the film. “Goldie (Behl) and I approached Farhan recently with my script on a father-son relationship. He really liked it. I need another actor for the role parallel to Farhan, when he plays the son,” says Mohit. The director adds that it is an original story, although similar to the Bollywood film, The Champ (1979). “The story is close to my own relationship with my father, except that the film has boxing as its backdrop. I was eight when my mother passed away, and my father raised me on his own. The story is about the struggle he faced as a single dad at 36.”

 Farhan loves the script

Mohit is also looking for someone to play Farhan’s son. “Farhan and I spoke about the script, and he thinks it’s brilliant,” says Mohit. He has taken a month’s break after Half Girlfriend. “On June 23, I will go to the US for two weeks and start my next project when I return,” he says.

Excited to tell his story
Post Aashiqui 2, when Mohit met Goldie, the latter wanted to remake a South Korean film, Crying Mist. “I could not make that film as it didn’t suit my sensibilities. Then I got busy with other films. Now, I’m excited about bringing my real-life story to the screen.” Mohit says.

Rock On 2 co-stars Farhan Akhtar and Shraddha Kapoor have been quite secretive about their alleged relationship. Reportedly, Shraddha was seen bonding with her former boyfriend Aditya Roy Kapur at a recent party.

Apparently, this did not go down too well with Farhan and he had a verbal spat with Aditya, following which Shraddha had to intervene for damage control. A source revealed to DC:

Farhan was pretty upset with Aditya and things took a wrong turn from there. As soon as Shraddha got a wind of it, she jumped in to control the damage. In fact, she is at Farhan’s residence sorting out the issue as we speak.”

If at all these reports are true, we hope the three of them sort their differences out soon!

Shraddha Kapoor Opens Up About Her Alleged Live-In Relationship With Farhan Akhtar

Shraddha Kapoor was recently in the news for rumours of her live-in relationship with alleged beau, Farhan Akhtar. Reports were doing the rounds that her father, Shakti Kapoor dragged her out of Farhan’s house, but the former rubbished those rumours.

Now Shraddha has come out to address the rumours of her live-in relationship with Farhan and told BT:

I got a message from someone telling me about this article, and initially, I was amused. While it doesn’t make a difference to me because I know it’s not true, it’s sad that these false stories go so far that people forget we are human, too. Of course, we are actors and there will be people who would probably want to read something gossipy about us, but when it involves my father, my aunt and my co-star, it’s taking it too far.”

She further said:

Yes, I am living in… with my parents! I was born and brought up in this house. It’s a joke within the family that I will bring my husband home (laughs). It’s because I’m so happy living with my family . I have a house of my own where I have my meetings and keep my extra stuff. I have no intention of moving out of my parents’ home and moving into my own apartment, let alone someone else’s! About live-in relationships in general, I believe in live and let live. If it suits somebody and someone is happy , then it’s totally fine -to each his own.”

There you heard it!

According to a fairly dramatic and entertaining article on Spotboye.com, Shakti Kapoor and Padmini Kolhapure dragged Shraddha Kapoor out of her alleged boyfriend Farhan Akhtar‘s home on Wednesday. This was because she was living with Farhan for a few days and Shraddha’s family was clearly not happy with his development.

But as per a report on BollywoodLife.com, Shakti Kapoor has vehemently denied doing anything like that. When the website got in touch with him, he responded rather angrily to the story. Here’s what he said –

“That’s total crap! It’s all shit. Somebody else also called me to inform me about this, but don’t believe it. It’s total, total, total crap. See I have been in this industry for over 35 years now. I know what happens so we don’t react to such things. It’s okay”.

Drama drama!

Rock On!! 2 about conflict in North East: Farhan Akhtar

650115

Actor Farhan Akhtar says his upcoming musical-drama “Rock On!! 2” focuses on the conflict in the North-East region of India. “The film really is about that place, about that culture, it is about the region’s problem. The largest conflict in the movie is the regional conflict… There is a personal issue also but the main is the regional problem,” Farhan said in an interview.

The 41-year-old “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” star said the movie will promote North-East music, which has a dedicated fan following across the country. “The movie is about rock and this genre is huge in the North-East. There is a band in the region called Somersault, which is a part of the film, there is a song in Khassi. The Noth-East music features seriously in the film.

“I am very happy to do this (promote North-East music). It is important to bring everything in mainstream. Everybody in the North-East plays an instrument or they sing. You don’t get to see that generally. When we were there, we had music playing 5 or 6 in the morning and no one was complaining. Everyone was enjoying that.”

“Rock On!! 2”, also starring Shraddha Kapoor, Prachi Desai and Arjun Rampal, is directed by Shujaat Saudagar. The sequel to 2008’s box office success “Rock On!!” will release on November 11.

Farhan shared he has been penning songs for some time now and once he completes filming “Rock On! 2”, he will focus on his songs. The multifaceted performer might release his own album or an array of separate singles. “I am writing lyrics, not for any film but for myself. When I finish ‘Rock On!! 2’, I will take a two-three months off and complete my songs. I don’t know if it will be an album, you don’t need to release an album these days… It can be a single or three-four songs.”

Farhan praised the current trend of singles, which was a big hit during the ‘90s. “Indie music is getting rejuvenated now and it is a great thing because there are many bands, who are not interested in doing film music. God bless them for that. I feel an alternate culture needs to exist of expression and if through songs you can do that, then nothing like it.”

Farhan Akhtar Says Censor Board Hasn’t ‘Behaved Consistently’ in the Past

farhan-akhtar-photos-from-live-concert-7581

“EVERYTHING IS A WORK IN PROGRESS. A NEW COMMITTEE HAS BEEN SET UP, HEADED BY MR SHYAM BENEGAL. I HOPE THAT SOME RESULT WILL COME OUT OF IT THAT BENEFITS ARTISTS. IN MY PERSONAL OPINION, THERE SHOULD BE A RATING SYSTEM. WE ARE STUCK WITH THE U, U/A AND A SYSTEM,” SAID FARHAN AKHTAR.

Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar said that the Shyam Benegal-headed committee will bring positive changes in the censor board.

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has been at the centre of flak for some time now, owing to its decision of cutting scenes in films like NH10 and SPECTRE.

“Everything is a work in progress. A new committee has been set up, headed by Mr Shyam Benegal. I hope that some result will come out of it that benefits artists. In my personal opinion, there should be a rating system. We are stuck with the U, U/A and A system, which do not allow that much sensibility. You can’t tell a person above a certain age that you are immature to watch a kiss. We don’t require babysitting,” Farhan said in an interview here.

There were reports that an intimate scene between Farhan and actress Aditi Rao Hydari in their upcoming film Wazir was deleted by the board.

However, Farhan denied the rumours but expressed his disappointment with the ‘inconsistency’ in the CBFC’s working.

“There has not been consistency in the way the censor board has behaved in the past which can tell you what will be removed. Every single time, the people in the committee, who come to watch your film, are not the same people. Different members come. Hence, they have different sensibilities and aesthetics. You can’t have a written rule. This is with every art form because context is everything. Snipping has to be done away,” added Farhan.
