Tiger Zinda Hai first poster: Sneak peek of Salman Khan’s killer look is the PERFECT Diwali gift for his fans


Guys, leave everything and check this out! The first poster of Tiger Zinda Hai is out and it is all about Salman Khan and his gun! Not the entire Salman, though, as we get to see a sliver of his face as the rest of his facial features are hidden behind his automatic gun. And he is wounded. But that makes him more dangerous, because the poster says ‘No one hunts like a wounded tiger’. We do wonder which poor soul had the misfortune of trying to maim this Tiger and will not live long to reveal his tale.


A few days back director Ali Abbas Zafar had revealed on his Twitter timeline that he will be revealing something special about Tiger Zinda Hai on Diwali. And as promised, the first poster has come out as the perfect Diwali gift for all Salman Khan fans out there. Salman himself had tweeted the poster with the caption, “Diwali Gift…. pasand aaya? Ab Christmas pe milna… #tigerzindahai”. But Salman, we hope to meet the Tiger before Christmas; you also have to show us the teaser, songs and the trailer too! We are also thankful that the first poster has veered away from the usual fixation of showing Salman Khan’s back first (though the first look of the movie was all about that!).

 When director Ali Abbas Zafar was asked to comment on his experience shooting with Salman and Katrina for TZH, he said, “Shooting for Tiger Zinda Hai was gruelling, challenging and a whole lot of fun. We’ve shot across pristine, relatively unseen locations in Austria, Morocco and shot on a huge lot in Abu Dhabi along with other spots. Right from the infrastructure, to the support that the local military has given us, shooting here was smooth and a great collaborative experience. Tiger and Zoya’s second outing is going to be larger than life, and the shoot lives up to that.”

Tiger Zinda Hai will release big this Christmas on December 22. Katrina Kaif will also reprise her role from the original 2012 blockbuster Ek Tha Tiger in the sequel.

Now that you have seen the poster, share your thoughts below…

Salman Khan gears up to launch Aayush Sharma with a love story


For some time now, speculations have been rife about Aayush Sharma’s Bollywood debut. Now, Bombay Times has it confirmed that the good-looking youngster will be launched by his brother-in-law Salman Khan, through his production house Salman Khan Films (SKF). The yet-to-be-titled film will be helmed by debutant Abhiraj Minawala(former assistant of director Ali Abbas Zafar), who Salman met during the making of ‘Sultan’. Previously too, Abhiraj has assisted on a number of films of the production house.

On his part, Aayush has been preparing for his debut for the last three years. He got a ringside view of how the industry functions by working closely with Salman during ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’, ‘Sultan’ and ‘Tubelight’. Apart from learning acting on the sets, he also underwent training in dance and action.

Even Salman was of the opinion that Aayush shouldn’t make his debut until he was completely ready. It’s only when the superstar felt that the aspiring actor was fully prepared, that he gave the go-ahead on his debut. We hear that Aayush has already begun attending workshops for his first film. That’s not all; once the heroine is finalised, there will be another series of workshops with the lead actors, before the film finally goes on floors.

The movie is a love story based in Gujarat. Confirming the news, Salman says, “Yes, we are producing Aayush’s debut film. Shooting will start in February and we’ll release the film later in 2018.”

Here’s What Aamir Khan Has To Say About The Failure Of Tubelight & Jab Harry Met Sejal


The Box Office usually pins high hopes on the 3 Khans of Bollywood. They usually have festival releases – Eid belongs to Salman KhanShah Rukh Khan usually claims Diwali and Christmas is reserved for Aamir Khan. Even though mainstream media pits the 3 of them against each other, they have often come out in support of each other.

Salman’s Tubelight and SRK’s Jab Harry Met Sejal were this year’s underperformers. Even the Khan tag failed to uplift these movies, which had high expectations from the audience. Aamir, who recently recovered from swine flu, was present at the song launch of Main Kaun Hoon from Secret Superstar. He was asked about the failure of his contemporaries’ movies, to which he responded:

We can’t say it’s a shift of trend. We see ups and downs, it happens.”

Aamir sure is a man of few words and he chooses them well!

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan Reportedly Agreed To Work With Salman Khan On This One Condition


Like most of his films, Sanjay Leela Bhansali apparently had Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai in mind when he scripted his upcoming magnum opus Padmavati. In a case similar to Bajirao Mastani, the director couldn’t go through this idea because the actors parted ways. According to Rajeev Masand‘s column in Open Magazine, before Padmavati had Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor starring in it, Sanjay reached out to Salman and Aishwarya for the film even after their break-up.

If you think the actors said no right away, here’s the big twist. As per the article, Aishwarya reportedly said she would be ready to work with her former boyfriend Salman only if he played Alauddin Khilji, the antagonist of the film. This way, both of them would have no scenes together.

It was Salman Khan who apparently refused this condition. A source revealed that while the superstar was happy to make the film, it had to be a love story. Salman was keen to recreate the magic of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, he wasn’t too pleased with doing a movie where he wouldn’t be working with Aishwarya.

Sanjay is now making the movie with Deepika as Padmavati and her real life boyfriend Ranveer playing Alauddin Khilji. Shahid will be playing Deepika’s husband Raja Rawal Ratan Singh.

Do you like the current casting or would you rather watch Salman and Aishwarya reunite? Tell us in the comments below.

Salman Khan or Shah Rukh Khan – who is Anushka Sharma’s favourite Bollywood superstar?


Anushka Sharma is one lucky gal, not only is the actress working with the who’s who of Bollywood the actress has managed to achieve a feat that some of her contemporaries like Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut have failed to do. Anushka has worked with all the three Khans of Bollywood. And the actress has had a great track record with each of them.

While Anushka marked her debut with Shah Rukh Khan in Yash Raj Films’ Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, she has gone one to sign three more films with him. The duo was last seen together in Yash Chopra’s last directorial venture Jab Tak Hai Jaan. She will be romancing SRK again in Imtiaz Ali’s Jab Harry Met Sejal and also has Aanand L Rai’s untitled next with King Khan. Her film PK with Aamir Khan and Sultan with Salman Khan have both been blockbuster. But what’s the actress’ equation like with the three Khans? Well, we decided to decode that in out Khan quiz…

While Anushka revealed that none of the Khans read while on sets, she also gave us an insight on their eating habits. Going by this interview looks like Anushka is closest to Shah Rukh Khan. We wonder what Aamir and Salman have to say?

Anushka and Shah Rukh’s Jab Harry Met Sejal was initially supposed to clash with Akshay Kumar and Bhumi Pednekar starrer
Toilet – Ek Prem Katha. However, the makers changed to release date to August 4. The film is all set to hit the screens this Friday and going by the buzz, SRK and Anushka might just strike a hattrick with this one.

In case all you Salman Khan fans have been wondering what Bhai is up to these days, let me tell you, he is having a very tight schedule right now. He’s taken a break from Tiger Zinda Hai shoot for now and is currently focusing on his cameos in Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming movie and Judwaa 2.

That Salman will be seen do a special appearance in Jduwaa 2 was made known right from the start. But it was recently announced that the superstar will be starring in Shah Rukh’s next which is directed by Anand L Rai. And ever since then, SRK and Salman fans are eagerly waiting for that day to see them together yet again. And if you are one among them, let me tell you, it’s finally happening! Salman is to begin shooting for the dwarf film between this Wednesday (July 6) to Friday (July 8). According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Salman is going to shoot back – to – back for Anand L Rai’s next and Judwaa 2.

A source was quoted by Mirror saying, “Salman and Shah Rukh will shoot together for over three days. The number is being choreographed by Remo D’Souza, who has taken a break from city tours of his reality show, Dance Plus 3, to focus on the lavishly mounted song for which a huge set has been erected. Rehearsals have already kicked off and it will be shot at a suburban studio.” Hmm.. Interesting! We are hoping to see some really cool selfies from the sets…

Talking about his role in Judwaa 2, the source added, “The idea is to have the old judwaas meeting the new ones and make it nostalgic for fans of of the original. After the climax is wrapped up, the film’s team will head to Portugal for a 12 – day schedule.” That sounds like a great idea!

So for now, Bhai has his plate full with quite a lot of movies in hand. His last film Tubelight didn’t do very well at the box office and fans are waiting for him to break all box office records with Tiger Zinda Hai which also stars Katrina Kaif.

Why Is The Criticism Of Salman Khan’s ‘Tubelight’ So Personal?

Salman-Khan-Tubelight While the initial reviews of Salman Khan’s Tubelight were overwhelmingly positive in India, the pendulum then swung dramatically to the negative, much of the scorn directed at Khan.

Arguably the torrent of scathing reviews had an impact on ticket sales as the Kabir Khan-directed drama set during the Sino-Indian war in 1962 collected 64.77 crore ($9.7 million) net in three days on 4,400 screens in India.

However the film which stars Salman Khan, his brother Sohail, Chinese actress Zhu Zhu and the late Om Puri is positioned to cash in on the Eid vacation which starts today, so judgment on its fate should be suspended.

The $15 million Salman Khan Films production earned a disappointing $810,000 on 342 screens in the U.S., a sturdy $710,000 on 49 in the U.A.E., according to Comscore’s estimate, $270,000 on 154 in the U.K. and a handy $232,000 on 42 in Australia.

In the U.S., Tubelight was overshadowed by Telugu director Harish Shankar’s Duvvada Jagannadham aka DJ, a crime drama starring Allu Arjun, Pooja Hegde, Rao Ramesh, Subbaraju, Vennela Kishore and Murali Sharma, which took $1 million on only 181 screens.

Produced by Dil Raju under his banner Sri Venkateswara Creations, DJ grossed an impressive 64 crore ($9.6 million) in three days on about 1,000 screens worldwide, according to the film’s PR rep Vamsi Kaka. That equates to a distributor share of 45 crore ($6.7 million) including 34.77 crore ($5.2 million) in the Telugu states.

Universal/Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me 3 grossed an estimated $1.7 million on only 263 screens including previews, rated as the biggest opening ever for Illumination Entertainment in India.

Salman stars as Laxman, a happy-go-lucky simpleton who sets off to find his brother Bharat (Sohail), a soldier who goes missing during the war. Om Puri plays the boys’ uncle who raised them after their parents died. Zhu Zhu and Matin Rey Tangu play a widowed mother and son who form bonds with Laxman. Shah Rukh Khan appears in one pivotal scene.

Many of the reviews were needlessly and unfairly personal, showing little regard for one of Bollywood’s biggest stars.

Deriding the film as a shabbily-written letdown, blogger Komal Nahta observed that while Salman makes an impact in some scenes he leaves the audience unaffected by his innocence and dim-wittedness, adding gratuitously, “He looks too bulky in many scenes, and this could’ve easily been avoided.”

Tubelight box office collection Day 4: Salman’s film inching towards the Rs 100-crore mark

sohail-salman-khan-tubelight Salman Khan’s big Eid release Tubelight might have been unable to break the box-office records set by his previous films, but Kabir Khan’s directorial venture is slowly inching towards the Rs 100-crore mark. After crossing the Rs 60-crore mark in its opening weekend, the film saw a slump at the box office on Eid.

Tubelight collected only Rs 19.09 crore on Monday, taking the total to Rs 83.86 crore.

Here is the day-to-day breakdown of Tubelight box-office collection:

Day 1 – Friday (June 23) – Rs 21.15 crore

Day 2 – Saturday (June 24) – Rs 21.17 crore

Day 3 – Sunday (June 25) – Rs 22.45 crore

Day 4 – Monday (June 26) – Rs 19.09 crore (approx)

Approximate four-day box-office collection of Tubelight: Rs 83.86 crore


Despite Tubelight being panned by critics, Salman seems unperturbed. In an interview to IANS, he said, “The critics were really good. I was expecting minus 3 and minus 4 but they gave 1, 1.5 apparently, so I am very pleased.”

Tubelight, directed by Kabir Khan, is an official remake of the 2015 American war drama Little Boy. Salman plays the simpleton Laxman, whose only goal is to bring his brother, Bharat (Sohail Khan), back home. Bharat was selected in the Indian Army and set to the border to fight against the Chinese forces in the 1962 Sino-Indian War.

The film also features Zhu Zhu, Matin Rey Tangu and late actor Om Puri in pivotal roles.

Salman Khan is a family man and these pictures are a proof!

Salman Khan and Sohail Khan are busy promoting their upcoming film Tubelight which will be releasing on June 23, 2017. However, the brothers make sure that they don’t leave their family alone. No doubt Salman has been one such man in the industry who has always stood by the family even after being busy with the work. The actor decided to take a day off from the promotions and spend some time with family. Here are the pictures.

Tubelight box office collection day 3: Salman Khan’s film registers lowest opening weekend numbers for his films in recent years, collects Rs 64.77 crore

Salman Khan‘s Tubelight was supposed to take the box office by a storm upon its release on June 23. Trade was hopeful that it will make Rs 80-85 crore in the first three days while Eid on Monday will add more bounty to the film, to take the four-day extended weekend total to more than Rs 100 crore. But the film has under-performed and taken everyone by a surprise. In the last three days, the film has earned Rs 64.77 crore, which is the lowest opening weekend count for a Salman Khan movie in recent years.

Taran Adarsh revealed the figures of the film saying, “#TubelightFri 21.15 cr, Sat 21.17 cr, Sun 22.45 cr. Total: ₹ 64.77 cr. India biz… Eid festivities should boost biz today + tomorrow.” He definitely sounds hopeful for today as it is Eid. In fact, that’s the only way the film can salvage its run at the box office. It has to be around Rs 25-30 crore for the film to post a good overhaul at the box office. He also mentioned how it has the lowest numbers for his films in recent times. Check out the figures right here…

So what went wrong with this film? Well, the fact that Tubelight was devoid of every Salman Khan bonanza could be one of the reason. There was no romance to talk about which people love to see. Plus action took a complete backseat here because the actor plays a man who is a slow learner and is not swift with his moves. Everything that his fans would love to see him do is missing from the film. The fact that Kabir Khan is hungover Bajrangi Bhaijaan is clearly visible here.
