BestsellerMagazine.com - CATEGORY Daily News: TITLE
2.0 was always touted as the film with the biggest budget so far. 2.0 is a science-fiction film which is written and directed by Southern ace Shankar and produced under the banner of Lyca Productions is a sequel to Shankar’s own Robot (2010). This will be the first film of the country which is natively shot in 3D. While the first part had Aishwarya Rai Bachchan opposite Rajinikanth, in the sequel we will see Amy Jackson as the female lead while Akshay Kumar is reportedly playing the antagonist. The film with an alleged of Rs 400 crores is regarded as the most expensive movie ever made in the country. The film is being shot simultaneously in Tamil as well as Hindi and will have dubbed releases in many languages. The film was expected to release on April 27 this year but doesn’t have a fixed release date as of now. Interestingly, it’s said that Akshay Kumar wasn’t the first choice for the role. Shankar initially spoke to Kamal Haasan and Aamir Khan and then, Vikram. But none of the three actors seemed interested in the project. Subsequently, the team held talks with Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger for the role, who agreed to work on the film for a record fee. The makers then opted against signing Schwarzenegger, though there have been conflicting reasons regarding this decision. After which, they finalised Akshay Kumar as the lead antagonist for the film. This movie will definitely raise the bar for other movies of the country. While the first part also had a ton of visual effects which were on par with movies like Hollywood, the creators aim to outdo themselves in the sequel.
Director: Rajkumar Hirani
The trend of biopics seems to have taken Bollywood by storm. Movies like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag (2013), Mary Kom (2014), M.S Dhoni: The untold story (2016) and Neerja (2016) are some of the recent biopics that went on to be extremely successful at the box-office. However, a biography on Sanjay Dutt is refreshing from the usual biographies on sports personalities. Ranbir Kapoor will be playing the role of Sanjay Dutt in the film. According to reports, the makers of the film went with the title Sanju for the film as that is what Sanjay Dutt is referred to by his close friends and family. Along with Ranbir Kapoor, the film also stars Dia Mirza who is said to be playing the role of his wife Manyata Dutt; we also will see the likes of Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma in the film. Apparently, Paresh Rawal and Manisha Koirala will be seen playing the role of Sunil Dutt and Nargis i.e. the parents of Sanjay Dutt. According to a report in a leading daily, Rajkumar Hirani showed a few scenes of the movie to Amitabh Bachchan. After watching the trailer, Amitabh was so impressed by Ranbir Kapoor’s performance that he felt that Rajkumar Hirani made Sanjay Dutt shoot for a part of the film himself. Well, if this is anything to go by, we are sure that Sanju will be one of Ranbir’s best performances to date. The film is said to have a budget of INR 80 crore. After multiple delays, Sanju is rumoured to release on June 29 this year.
4. Sui Dhaaga: Made in India
Director: Sharat Katariya
Sui Dhaaga is said to be a heart-warming story of pride and self-reliance, rooted in the heart of India. In the movie, we will be seeing the pair of Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma for the very first time. The movie is produced under the Yash Raj Films banner with a budget of INR 40 crore and is being directed by Sharat Katariya, who already has impressed the audience and critics with Dum Laga Ke Haisha which was also produced by Yash Raj Films. Dum Laga Ke Haisha starred Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar in leading roles. The movie, set in middle class India and talking about romance blooming amongst an unlikely couple reminded the viewers of Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee films and Sui Dhaaga, which is said to be a romance between a tailor, played by Varun and an embroidery expert, played by Anushka, will hopefully offer us similar joys. Recently, the actors revealed their looks and the names of the characters which they will be playing in the film. Check out this picture below! Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma look almost unrecognisable in the picture and it shows that they have outdone themselves to get to the skin of the character. Varun Dhawan’s character is called Mauji and Anushka Sharma’s character is called Mamta. The plot of the movie is roughly inspired by India’s : Make in India campaign and that is why the line “Made In India” is also included along with the tittle.
5.Veere Di Wedding
Director: Shashanka Ghosh
Veere Di Wedding is without a doubt one of the most awaited films of the year, the reason being it is the comeback film for Kareena Kapoor Khan. Kareena was last seen in Ki And Ka (2016) alongside Arjun Kapoor. After that, she took a long gap from the movies due to her pregnancy. This is the first time Kareena will be seen on the big screen after the birth of her son. While talking to a leading portal, Kareena said that, “Yeah! It is my wedding in the movie and it will be different. Rhea is going to style me. It will be stylish. And with Sonam – the fashionista in the movie, I surely cannot wear my jeans and t-shirt. Or you never know, I may convince her to come out of her ball gowns and wear jeans and t-shirt. You’ll should wait and watch (laughs).” Veere Di Wedding is directed by Shashanka Ghosh and is written by Mehul Suri and Nidhi Mehra. The movie is produced by Ekta Kapoor, Rhea Kapoor and Nikhil Dwivedi. Along with Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania have pivotal roles in the film. The film also marks the debut of Sumeet Vyas who is popular for his work in many web series and short films. Reportedly, Sumeet Vyas will be seen opposite Kareena Kapoor in the film. The movie is about four best friends who go to attend a wedding together and about the events that transpire at the wedding. The film is all set to release on June 1, 2018.
Director: Aanand L Rai
Zero is a romantic drama which is written by Himanshu Sharma and stars Shah Rukh Khan in the titular role. Shah Rukh is reportedly playing a dwarf in the film and the teaser trailer released earlier this year left us panting for more. Himanshu has already worked previously with Aanand L Rai as he has written for his previous movies like Tanu Weds Manu (2011), Raanjhanaa (2013) and Tanu Weds Manu Returns (2015). The film is jointly produced by Aanand L Rai and Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment’s and reporedtly has a budget of INR 150 crore. Apart from SRK, the film also stars Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in leading roles. This is the second time the three will be seen together on screen. Previously, they were seen in Jab Tak Hai Jaan (2012), directed by Yash Chopra. Shah Rukh Khan’s last few films prove that the actor wants to experiment in the kind of movies he is seen in. While he has done movies like, Jab Harry Met Sejal (2017) and Dilwale (2015) which would be regarded as commercial movies. He also has experimented with movies like Fan (2016) and Raees (2017) which are very different from the commercial genre. Director Aanand L Rai in an interview with a leading daily, spoke about how he got the idea for the film. After he watched Krrish (2012) and saw the comparisons being made to American superheroes like Bat-Man, Spiderman and Superman, he appreciated India’s effort to create their own superheroes but felt that India is not ready for their superhero…yet. In the interview, he said, "I loved seeing Hrithik (Roshan) fly off a 250-feet building, it was brilliantly done, but deep down I felt this wasn’t us. Apart from our mythological demigods, Indians aren’t ready for superheroes, we are still short in height. That’s what made me want to live life from the perspective of a dwarf.” The film was apparently titled Katrina Meri Jaan, however, the makers decided to change it as they felt that the tittle was too misleading and would make people think that the film was about Katrina Kaif. The added bonus for the viewers while watching the movie would be cameos of leading ladies like Deepika Padukone, Juhi Chawla, Rani Mukerji, Kajol, Karisma Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and the late Sridevi in the film. It will probably be Sridevi’s last appearance in a film.
