Just married, Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji, who was in the capital to attend her close friend and designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s show at the ongoing Shree Raj Mahal Jewellers India Couture Week (ICW), turned up dressed oddly at the event.
Wearing a sari from Sabyasachi’s new collection, which he showcased at ICW, Rani draped the ‘palla’ rather tightly around her shoulders.
The blouse was looked rather deep for the actress to carry off and hence she had to wrap it tightly around her shoulder and her stomach. Or was it her recently put on weight that made her conscious.

(sic),” Salman Khan posted on Twitter, followed by another tweet, “I wld hv immense respect for them if they keep this stand (sic).”
The Bombay News Photographers Association have decided to ban the actor forever and has issued the statement. “The Bombay News Photographers Association (BNPA) has decided that photographers affiliated with them will not shoot Bollywood actor Salman Khan’s photographs–in events where he is the host or the guest,” the statement reads.
Meanwhile, the actor said that he respects the decision of paparazzi to boycott him, adding, “This is despite of knowing they will not survive without taking my pictures they have taken this decision.”
“At Baba Siddiqui’s iftaar party, they bugged almost at every one, from the CM to other ministers. I don’t understand why they need to come so close and click pictures when they already use a high-resolution digital camera. Such devices can be used from 30 metres away.”

Banned cricketer S Sreesanth, recently lost his cool after being told about a shuffle in the order of performances. He learnt that lack of votes has put him in the bottom two with Pooja Bose.
When judge Remo D’Souza told him that it wasn’t one of his best performances and that he could have done better, Sreesanth retorted by saying, ‘I would like to contradict that. This is my best performance.’
Next, when Madhuri Dixit-Nene asked him what went wrong, he said he felt a jerk in his shoulder, got distracted, and lost the tempo. His curt reply to Remo didn’t go down well with Karan Johar, who chose to reserve his comment. “The next thing we know is Sreesanth stormed out of the set. We were too shocked to react,” says a source associated with the show.
Meanwhile comes the news that S Sreesanth’s journey on the seventh season of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa has finally come to end. The cricketer received the lowest number of votes which has resulted in his ouster from the show.

Vidya Balan’s Bobby Jasoos may have won critical acclaim but that did not translate into collections at the box office. The movie managed to collect a meagre Rs 7 crore over the weekend. The other new release, Ranbir Kapoor’s cousin Armaan Jain’s Lekar Hum Deewana Dil (LHDD) posted a dismal collection of just Rs 2 crore.
Though the entire Kapoor clan came out in support of newbie Armaan Jain for his debut film ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’ which had AR Rahman’s music but that did not work in the favour of the film.
On the other hand, Humshakals, though trashed by the critics, had an dream start but collections dropped in the 2nd week. The movie fared poorly all through its 2nd week and continues the same in its 3rd weekend as well, taking its domestic total so far to 63.72 crores at the domestic box office.
The Sajid Khan film even after being the third highest opener of 2014, had a tough time at the box office after the release of Ek Villain, which took over its business.
Ek Villain, continued its dream run at the box office, collecting Rs 87 crore so far.

Yash Raj Films has announced that comedian Kapil Sharma won’t be part of their film ‘Bank Chor’ anymore. This has come just after Kapil’s Twitter war with Kamaal R Khan.
Kapil Sharma, who shot to fame with his show, Comedy Nights with Kapil, has been in the news for all the wrong reasons lately. The latest incident being his spat with Kamaal R Khan.
Now that the film deal has fallen through, speculation is rife about what may have caused this. A source says, “The film was slated to go on the floors in April, but Kapil kept delaying it as he wanted to build a bank of episodes of his show and get in shape for the film.
Another reason was the fact that no cast had been finalised. Many actresses were apparently approached but things didn’t really work out.” According to some reports, Nargis Fakhri was offered to play the lead in the film, but she apparently refused it citing date issues.
Another source says that as soon as the official announcement about casting Kapil in Bank Chor was made, there was a sudden change in him. “He was quite excited about the project and had even suggested a few changes in the script. This could also be one of the reasons why the film deal hasn’t worked out. Moreover, the controversies surrounding Nargis and KRK brought in negative publicity for the film.”
