GOLIYON KI RAASLEELA RAM-LEELA had a good Monday of around 7.75 crore nett as per early estimates with collections falling 50% on average on from Friday. Some circuits fell a bit less than 50% while others were a bit more.
The film is continuing its dream run in Mumbai circuit with collections set to come in the 3.25-3.50 range on Monday and the film could well go and cross the 50 crore nett mark in Mumbai circuit which has only been done by 7-8 films.
Outside Mumbai the film is doing best in Rajasthan and South. The film has collected nearly 58 crore nett in four days and should collect around 74-75 crore nett for the first week which is a huge number for a film without a major male lead star.

Looks like Salman Khan is still smarting about Kushan Tandon’s claim about him apologising to him after how he was shunted out of Bigg Boss.
Salman had expressed his displeasure at this not so long back. Probably that’s one of the reasons why Khan is refusing to react to the channel and the production house’s request to get Kushal back in the show. Kushal apparently is getting more and more desperate as he has been waiting eagerly for a while now.
A source says, “The channel and the production team is constantly in touch with Salman to convince him to get Kushal back. So far their efforts have been in vain. The unit will discuss it again with Salman and see if he has changed his mind when he comes back to shoot for the show.”
Adds the source, “Kushal had a meeting with the channel recently to discuss his re-entry in the show. He is keen to get back and ready to go in without any pre-conditions. Earlier, he had felt that he was being targetted and Salman was being soft on the other contestants, but now he’s even ready to take back his words.”
The buzz is that the makers are all set to play up his budding romance with another contestant, Gauhaur Khan, in the house. They were ready to send him when his ex- girlfriend model Candy Brar was in the house, but she made a quick exit.
But looks like Salman is in no hurry to forgive and forget.
Kushal remained unavailable for comment.

Even after two back-to-back hits, Aditya Roy Kapoor, says he is yet to master the starry handwave and confesses that it is food that makes him go weak in his knees

You are in Lucknow as a chef in a film titled Daawat-e-Ishq. What’s cooking today? I’m only required to cut and chop today. I’ve yet to tell Habib sir (director Habib Faizal) that I can only whip up omelettes and brew coffee. My parents are the chefs. I’ve been trying to learn for five years, but since the food at home is so good, there was never the need for me to learn.
Is the way to your heart through your stomach? (Laughs) Yes, I’m eating everything I see. I love mutton biryani, while I was shooting in Hyderabad, I had it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I love Lucknow’s Tunde ke kababs. Also, butter naan, kaali dal and mutter paneer.
Can you be wooed with a drink too? (Guffaws) I love this particular brand of flavoured milk.
You are a teetotaller? I enjoy a drink occasionally and during Aashiqui 2 had one too many. I never reached the ‘high’ that makes for interesting stories, but during the South African schedule I couldn’t look people in the eyes because the character had seeped in.
Reportedly, you fell in love with Shraddha Kapoor for real and got so possessive that you didn’t want her to take a holiday alone? Shraddha and I got along, but we’re not dating. I was only acting in Aashiqui 2.
Apparently in college you were so infatuated with a More >

Homi Adajania gave letters to the cast and crew of his movie Finding Fanny, which stars Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah, Dimple Kapadia and Pankaj Kapur. But don’t assume that he, like Sajid Khan, sent out letters promising the actors that the movie will hit the jackpot at the box-office. Whenever Sajid starts a film, he gives letters to his cast welcoming them to the biggest hit of their career.
Homi’s letter to his team was a hilarious one. When asked about it, the director says, “It was a very hard shoot, which we knocked off in 41 days and it was only possible owing to an amazing bunch of people. So, I wrote a letter to thank them. But it’s personal so it won’t make sense to anyone apart from them… Besides it’s full of profanity so you won’t be able to print it.”
Although he wasn’t ready to share the contents, we managed to get our hands on it, thanks to a crew member who shared a copy with us after swearing it to secrecy. Reproduced below enjoy!! Goodbye and thank you, Parsi style!
To the CREW and CAST of Finding Fanny… Nov 15th 2013. In these last 50-odd days, you could have done anything. You could have: a) Trekked naked in stilettos to the South Pole. b) Learned the complex art of living in oxymoronic bliss. c) Stop the sun from setting. d) Saved a little-known animal from extinction.
Instead you chose to get sun-f@#ked and flirt with melanoma, abandon loved ones who have probably abandoned you by now, forced More >
This week sees the release of her fifth film with Karan Johar’s banner
Upala KBR (DNA; November 20, 2013)
Kareena Kapoor didn’t begin her career with Karan Johar’s banner Dharma Productions, but she seems to be the producer’s favourite leading lady. Gori Tere Pyaar Mein which releases this week will be her fifth film for KJo and there are two more in the offing. A Dharma-Balaji co-production Badtameez Dil and Shuddhi with Hrithik Roshan. Which brings her count to more than KJo’s favourite Kajol who has done four films with him — Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, We Are Family and My Name is Khan.
Bebo, the star Kareena has never done so many films for one banner. It talks about her friend in the producer. The Dharma man is also very fond of the actress and considers her family. Talking about their association, Karan Johar says, “I have known Bebo as a child as we both come from filmi families but I didn’t know her well till I met her at a media party when she was just 17. Kareena was standing like a super star in a corner. But even back then she had tremendous confidence. Her sister Karisma was a big star by then and Bebo didn’t have a single release but even then she was already a movie star in her head. If anybody could be Poo (her character in K3G) it was Kareena. After she played Poo, Kareena took it into a few other films too. I have seen her evolve as an actress. She did a lot of fun films and string of roles but it was after Chameli and Dev that she was More >
Priya Gupta (BOMBAY TIMES; November 20, 2013)
Well not in real life, but Kalki and Richa play two characters with the same name Jia, who have both taken holidays for different reasons and end up meeting in Sweden. While Richa plays a simple vegetarian Tam-Brahm, Kalki plays a flirtatious, outgoing and bindass Punjabi, who loves her drinks and is often stoned. Directed by Howard Rosemeyer, it’s a Swedish Indian co-production and was recently shot in Sweden. Any guesses what the title of the film is? It’s Jia aur Jia!
Imran Khan on Gori Tere…, his co-star Kareena Kapoor Khan, mamu Aamir Khan and all-time favourite Salman Khan
Meena Iyer (BOMBAY TIMES; November 20, 2013)
Gori Tere Pyaar Mein is your second outing with Kareena Kapoor Khan. Was the experience better than that of Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu? Kareena is the first heroine that I am repeating. Otherwise every film that I have done, I have worked with someone different. What happens is, when you work with someone for the first time it takes a little bit of time to figure out each other’s rhythm and settle into a groove. By the time you get really settled, the film is over. In the case of GTPM, Bebo and I hit the ground running. We have reached a point where we both understand a lot of how we work. As a result, we are able to work together as a team.
This kind of understanding is important in a romantic comedy… Yes, romcoms are dependent on chemistry. At the end of the day, a lot of the stories and emotions that go into making a romantic comedy are what you have seen before. However, what makes it fresh and interesting is the little tussle and play between the hero and heroine. Bebo and I are very good with it. Even in EMAET, we got it right. With GTPM, it has gotten better.
Yeah, she even said you are sugar and she is spice… That sounds like a catch phrase.
GTPM looks like a nice, sweet and happy film. But it doesn’t seem to be anything that can get anyone into a lather… You are right. It’s a sweet, happy film with great music…just More >

His impressive pecs and high kicks helped Vidyut Jamwal grab eyeballs in his debut film Force. Commando, his first as a leading man, made an impact for its action sequences and the former model, whose name today is synonymous with daredevilry, is now preparing for what he hopes will be a turning point in his career.
Not only will Jamwal’s group, the Vidyut Jamwal Stunt Company, be named in the stunts credit of Bullett Raja, the actor has also signed an action film and buzz is that the project is on the lines of the Hollywood hit 300.
The actor is prepping up for the flick to be directed by Ram Madhvani. The filmmaker has directed several award-winning commercials and his first feature, Let’s Talk premiered at the Locarno Film Festival. “The concept is brilliant and Ram is one of the best action directors. The film will be unlike anything you have seen before, with a lot of the Indian martial art form, Kalaripayattu, which I have trained in since I was 10,” said Vidyut.
The action hero claims that he choreographed all the stunts in his previous two outings but did not get credit for it. But in Bullett Raja, where he makes a special appearance, Vidyut and his group will be mentioned in the credits. “Tigmanshu (Director Tigmanshu Dhulia) told me to choreograph my action scenes and has credited them to me. My company is made up of 15 boys from the slums of Dharavi and from Kerala,” Vidyut told Mirror.

Calm and collected Sonakshi Sinha is doing phenomenally well for a ‘blank slate’ and ‘unambitious’ person as she likes to call herself. An excerpt from a candid chat…
Two drastically different films, Bullett Raja and R… Rajkumar releasing back to back… Yes, Tigmanshu sir’s film and Prabhu sir’s films are like the two ends of the spectrum. In Bullett Raja, I play a struggling actress. It is an interesting premise and I really wanted to work with Tigmanshu. I respect him a lot. About R… Rajkumar, it is a typical, masala film with songs and dance. It is a film where romance is given as much importance as action.
People who have worked with you once come back to you for more… True, but see the films that they have come back to me with. I started with Joker but then I was given Rowdy Rathore, which I think was a fantastic film. I did Dabangg and I got to do Dabangg 2. People I have worked with would have understood if I had declined their next offer but I didn’t find any reason to turn down any of them.
But relationships and networking work here big time… At first they said I am Salman’s favourite and then they said I am Akshay’s favourite. It is not like I haven’t worked with other people. Ranveer, Saif, Shahid… I believe in keeping cordial relationship with everyone. Yes, I form a good working rapport with people and that is what takes you forward. Today, if someone has to ask why Akshay Kumar works with me again, it’s because More >
