The ‘Shaandaar Shukravaar’ episode of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati 13’ on Friday will have Deepika Padukone and director-choreographer Farah Khan on the hot seat with the host of the show, Amitabh Bachchan.
Before the start of the episode, Deepika will be seen gifting Big B and Farah, her mentor, Ganpati idols. Moving ahead, Big B will be seen engaging in banter with his guests. They share personal anecdotes and then they are taken by complete surprise by Big B when he enacts Deepika’s memorable ‘Ek chutki sindoor ki keemat’ scene from the film ‘Om Shanti Om’, which was directed by Farah.
In her interaction with the host, Deepika reveals that she is a big foodie. She doesn’t just love food, but unlike other people who eat thrice in a day, she eats “every three minutes”. Deepika humorously mentions that it is because of Big B, who had emptied her lunch ‘dabba’, that she has to eat every three minutes.
Another interesting revelation Deepika will make in the show is that her husband and popular actor Ranveer Singh does not make her breakfast. Hearing this, Big B will be seen calling Ranveer to sort out this matter.
While talking about her personal experiences, Deepika recalled that in order to cast her for ‘Om Shanti Om’, Farah took her body of work to Australia to show it to Shah Rukh Khan, who was then shooting for ‘Chak De! India’. Farah had barely shown him her photo and all SRK said was, ‘Done’.
The Top 6 finalists of ‘Indian Idol Season 12’ – Pawandeep Rajan, Arunita Kanjilal, Mohd Danish, Sayli Kamble, Nihal Tauro and Shanmukha Priya – will also be performing in this star-studded special episode.
(The episode will air on September 10 at 9:00 p.m. on Sony Entertainment Television)
Bipasha, Karan announce pregnancy: ‘A creation manifested by our love’
Bollywood actress Bipasha Basu and her actor husband Karan Singh Grover have announced that they are all set to welcome their first bundle of joy.
The 43-year-old actress took to Instagram, where she shared a motley of pictures from her pregnancy shoot. In one picture, Bipasha is seen dressed in a white shirt while her husband Karan is seen lovingly kissing her baby bump.
She captioned the images: “A new time, a new phase, a new light adds another unique shade to our prism of life. Making us a little more whole than we used to be. We began this life individually and then we met each other and from then we were two.”
“Too much love for only two, seemed a little unfair for us to see… so soon, we who once were two will now become three. A creation manifested by our love, our baby will join us soon and add to our glee.”
She added: “Thank you all, for your unconditional love, your prayers and good wishes as they are and will always be a part of us. Thank you for being a part of our lives and manifesting with us another beautiful life, our baby Durga Durga.”
Bipasha met Karan on the sets of “Alone” in 2015. The two got married in 2016. The actress was earlier dating actor John Abraham.
Danny Boyle saw Anil Kapoor’s ‘Taal’, offered him ‘Slumdog Millionaire’
Actor Anil Kapoor revealed that Danny Boyle saw his film ‘Taal’ and his performance in it that made the Hollywood filmmaker offer him the hugely successful film ‘Slumgod Millionaire’.
Anil also shared that he was destined to do this film as it was first offered to actor Govinda and then it came to him.
As the film, which also stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Akshaye Khanna, completes 23 years of its release on Saturday, Anil took to social media to share some pictures from the shoot and pen a note.
“23 years of Taal! I will forever be grateful to have been a part of this iconic movie. In many ways, I was destined to do it, as my role was first offered to Govinda but ultimately came to me.”
“It was Taal that Danny Boyle saw and my performance in it that made him offer me Slumdog Millionaire, I thank my lucky stars for the love and support of the phenomenally talented showman @subhashghai1 saab and for 4 hugely successful milestone films with him!”
‘Taal’ released in 1999. The musical romantic drama is directed by Subhash Gahi. It was also dubbed in Tamil as ‘Thaalam’.
‘Slumdog Millionaire’ was nominated for ten Academy Awards in 2009 and won eight, the most for any film in 2008.
The British drama film is loosely adapted from the novel ‘Q & A’ by Indian author Vikas Swarup, telling the story of 18-year-old Jamal Malik from the Juhu slums of Mumbai. Starring Dev Patel as Jamal, and filmed in India, it also stars Freida Pinto.
As a contestant on ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’, Jamal surprises everyone by being able to answer every question correctly, winning 20 million. Accused of cheating, Jamal recounts his life story to the police, illustrating how he is able to answer each question correctly.
Kareena opens up on her iconic character Poo having her own movie
Kareena Kapoor Khan’s over-the-top Poo from ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ is one of the most memorable and loved roles from the actress’s career. The Bollywood diva herself finds it unbelievable that even after 21 years of the film’s release the character is still relevant amongst all age-groups.
Kareena’s character Poo is not only known for her taste in fashion but also one liners such as “Kaun hai yeh jisne dobara mudke mujhe nahi dekha”, ‘P.H.A.T – Pretty, Hot And Tempting’ and “Tumhe koi haq nahi banta ki tum itni khoobsurat lago. Not fair” among many others.
Asked if she feels that Poo deserves a movie to herself, Kareena, in conversation with IANS, said: “Oh God! Like I think now this character is so relevant with this generation more than it was then.”
Kareena talks about what makes the character, which comes from Chandni Chowk in New Delhi and then moves to London with her sister essayed by Kajol and brother-in-law played by Shah Rukh Khan, have such a massive fan following.
“I think for the way she is, the way she talks, the kind of millennial Gen-Z kinda words that she uses connect somehow.”
The 41-year-old actress added: “So, I think it is because of that more than anything else. Let’s see a film someday, who knows.”
Kareena’s latest release is ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ starring Aamir Khan. The film is an adaptation of Tom Hanks’ iconic movie ‘Forest Gump’. It also stars Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya.
