Sanjay Dutt, John Abraham join the cast of Housefull 4 along with Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh?

Sanjay Dutt, John Abraham join the cast of Housefull 4 along with Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh?

Just a couple of days ago, we had reported that Housefull is all set to return with its fourth instalment. While Sajid Nadiadwala announced the return of Sajid Khan [who has directed Housefull and Housefull 2 ] with this film, there has been no update on the casting details. And now, reports claim that John Abraham will return to the franchise and a new addition will be made in the form of Sanjay Dutt . John Abraham, who played a con artist in Housefull 2 [2012], will feature along with regulars Akshay Kumar and Riteish Deshmukh in the film. As for Sanjay Dutt , it has been learnt that he will play a pivotal role in the film. Speculations have it that though the two actors have agreed on principal, they are yet to sign on the dotted line. It is also being said that Boman Irani and Chunky Panday [as Aakhri Pasta] who has been associated with all films of the franchise will return even in the fourth instalment. On the other hand, Abhishek Bachchan , who was a part of Housefull 3 , is reportedly not a part of Housefull 4 . Jacqueline Fernandez who too was seen in all the three films [as a guest appearance in the first Housefull ], too is said to have exited the franchise owing to her equation with Sajid Khan. Jacqueline and Sajid were allegedly dating earlier but after a messy breakup in 2013, the two have maintained a distance from each other. Hence we hear that Sajid Khan had a discussion with Sajid Nadiadwala wherein he apparently confessed that he is not comfortable working with the actress considering their history. Housefull 4 promises to be a fun ride that revolves around the theme of reincarnation and is said to be mounted on a lavish scale. Buzz is that a popular actor from down South will also join the said cast but an official announcement is awaited on these details.

Dangal makes us realize how much the father’s support meant for the sisters

Dangal makes us realize how much the father’s support meant for the sisters

Having made his mark as an actor, Arjun Kapoor is now exploring newer horizons. Yesterday, at a press conference, the talented actor was announced as the co-owner of FC Pune City which is a part of the ‘Indian Super League’. The actor talked about the initiative and gave examples of male actors who are a lot into sports. At this juncture, Arjun Kapoor was asked to comment on women in sports and his views on this topic. Arjun gave a very in-depth reply. He said, “Equality is not seen in sports because of lack of opportunities. I won’t say that women sportsmen are not capable enough. It’s important to change people’s point of view. And that happens gradually when the Indian women’s cricket team succeeds in World Cup or when Sania Mirza manages to emerge victorious. Then even films like Dangal help change the mindset and make us understand what all women can do. So the process is going on. I personally believe that if people stop discriminating child on the basis of their gender and give them equal opportunities, then we’ll see many more successful women athletes. Our sports federations have also finally woken up to the fact that we need to support the cause of women and that there’s something out there for them to latch on to. For women, there’s a lot of pressure since they are compelled to get married after a certain age. So we have to create an environment where those pressures are released and the women are allowed to believe and fly.” Arjun Kapoor further added, “The women’s cricket team is a fine example. Sportswomen like Mithali Raj have made a lot of young girls dream. Also, the way Sania Mirza conducts herself and the manner in which their families have been so supportive also needs to be considered. When you see Dangal , you realize how much their father’s support meant for them (Phogat sisters, on whose life the film was based). Even then, they got the respect they deserve only after a film is made on them.” Arjun Kapoor ended his answer by stating, “I hope that the word ‘equality’ is not just spoken but used in the thinking in the day to day basis.”

Jyothi D Tommaar was on sets the make sure that Deepika performed the revered dance form with the understated grace that it deserves. Says a source from Sanjay Leela Bhansali productions, “We wanted to retain absolute authenticity of the Ghoomar. Deepika had to perform the subtle and intricate dance form not the way it is shown in our films but the way royalty performs it. In addition to the routine choreographers we got Jyothi Tommaar a true and disciplined exponent of the Ghoomar who has taught the dance form to the Rajmata of Kishangarh.” Deepika spent 12 days rehearsing the ‘Ghoomar’ number and 4 days actually performing it on camera.

“I am very fortunate to be working with Amitabh Bachchan” – Fatima Sana Shaikh “I am very fortunate to be working with Amitabh Bachchan” – Fatima Sana Shaikh For Fatima Sana Shaikh , life has taken a major, positive turn. The actress appeared in Bollywood as a child actor in films like Chachi 420 . Then she did small bits in films like Bittoo Boss, Table No 21, Akaash Vani, Tahaan etc. But luck favoured her when she bagged Dangal . The actress got a chance to play the adult Geeta Phogat and overnight, she became a nationwide sensation. It was a film featuring Aamir Khan in a leading role and yet she managed to shine. It was no surprise that she then bagged one of the biggest upcoming films of Bollywood, Thugs Of Hindostan . It brings her back with Aamir Khan but there’s also Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif in this multi-starrer period drama. At the success party of Secret Superstar , Fatima seemed to be in great mood and talked to the media in length about the Diwali release and a lot more. But when asked about Thugs Of Hindostan , she remained more or less tight-lipped, probably due to contractual obligations. But she couldn’t stop hiding her excitement of working with Big B. She said, “I can’t talk much about Thugs Of Hindostan . There’s a lot of time left. But I am very excited and happy. I am very fortunate to be working with Amitabh Bachchan. He’s a legend.” Thugs Of Hindostan is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, who earlier directed Aamir Khan in 2013’s biggest grosser Dhoom 3 . It is all set to release next year on Diwali.
