Sanjay Dutt slams and seeks to send legal notice to publisher-writer over his unofficial biography
The celebrity biographies and memoirs really grab attention as it gives the audience insight into celebrity lives and the controversies. In the past few years, many celebrity memories and biographies have stirred up controversies. Not long ago Nawazuddin Siddiqui s book created a huge ruckus. Now, Sanjay Dutt is very upset over his unauthorized biography by Yasser Usman. Titled Sanjay Dutt : The Crazy Untold Story of Bollywoods Bad Boy, Yaseer Usman talks about everything from his early life to troubled years with drugs and law that landed him in jail. The publisher, Juggernaut Books, has been reportedly sharing pdf files with media and had set an embargo till March 20 to release a few excerpts from the unauthorized biography. When a couple of excerpts started making the rounds of news outlets, Sanjay Dutt took to his Twitter to slam the publisher and writer. In a post, Sanjay Dutt wrote, I have not authorized either Juggernaut Publications (sic) or Yasser Usman to write/publish my biography. Our lawyers had sent them a legal notice, in response to which Juggernaut Publications said that contents of the proposed book are based on information available in public domain from authentic sources. However, from the excerpts that are appearing in the newspaper are partly based on my old interviews, but rest all seemed to be based on hearsay, 1990s tabloids and gossip magazines, most of which are figments of imagination and not true. I have consulted with my legal team on the next course of action. I hope better sense will prevail and there will be no further excerpts that will hurt me or my family. My official autobiography will be out soon which will be authentic and based on facts, he further wrote. In an official statement released, Juggernaut Publication said they are sorry to hear that Sanjay Dutt is upset over the unofficial biography. They added that the book was an homage to him. We are sorry to hear that Mr Sanjay Dutt was upset by our book on him. The author, Yasser Usman, an award-winning journalist and reputed writer on Bollywood actors, is a fan and very sympathetic to Mr Dutt. Yasser has chosen his sources and materials with care. He has relied extensively on direct quotes from Mr Dutt, his close associates such as Mr Mahesh Bhatt , and members of the Dutt family. Moreover, as has been said in most of Yassers interviews and pieces in the press, he is a huge admirer of Mr Dutts honesty and lack of pretense and believes these qualities meaningfully set him apart from the rest of the film industry. The book is a homage to those admirable and rare traits of honesty and frankness. However, to pay respect to Mr Dutts wishes, we wont put out any more extracts from the book in short-form media, the publishers said in a statement. Sanjay Dutt, meanwhile, is busy working on his next projects. The actor will be seen in several movies. He will be seen in Saheb, Biwi Aur Gangster 3 Torbaaz and Panipat.Also Read: REVEALED: Sanjay Dutt signs a multi-starrer comic caper

Akshay Kumar is overwhelmed by Gold teams special gesture
It has been over three months since Akshay Kumar and the team wrapped up the shoot of Gold .They had finished it in December and had even partied their night away, celebrating the successful and timely wrap-up. But it seems that the team had created such a strong bonding in a short time. And if recent reports are to be believed, they have been sort of missing each other. The team of Gold completed extensive shoot schedules in London and Mumbai. During that time, we hear that they seem to have formed a strong camaraderie with each other. And now they, who were missing each other, decided to catch up. In fact, the crew even decided to surprise the leading man of their film, Akshay Kumar. And this was their plan! Some of director Reema Kagti s assistants and crew members decided to meet the actor. Not just that, they even decided to gift something special to Akshay Kumar. The goodies included two lovely cakes that were specially made for him, sky blue pair of shoes and T-Shirt that had One More For Safety slogan. The team members, who seemed to have developed a great rapport with the superstar, were quite aware of his likings and dislikes. They were not only aware of the fact that Akshay Kumar has a sweet tooth but also about his love for footwear. Furthermore, an overwhelmed Akshay Kumar was however left puzzled with the slogan. Soon he realized that it was related to something that happened on the sets of Gold.Reports had it that whenever Reema Kagti okayed a shot given by Akshay Kumar, she would further add one more safety even if the last shot was perfect. The reason was to get a backup shot just in case. Hence, when they decided to gift a T-shirt, they decide to customize it so that the actor can preserve as a fond memory. Sweet na?

The actress garnered immense love and appreciation from audience and critics alike. The Jauhar sequence, which was a major highlight of the film, was the most difficult part for Deepika Padukone.

Given the sentimental value of that ensemble, she wants to treasure it for life. Deepika Padukone shares, Padmaavat , in its entirety, has been a journey that will stay with me forever.

Raj Thackeray takes a jibe at Akshay Kumars Canadian Citizenship and doing government propaganda movies
Akshay Kumar , in the last one year, has done two films with a social message. While many have praised his work for bringing such causes to a big platform, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray has slammed Akshay Kumar. The politician recently took a jibe at his government propaganda movies and that he was a Canadian citizen. Speaking at an MNS rally, Raj Thackeray recently took a jibe at the Akshay Kumar that he was trying to follow the footsteps of veteran actor Manoj Kumar who was known as Bharat Kumar. He also took a potshot at his Canadian citizenship stating that people who try to preach people nationalism, have citizenship of another country. But Akshay Kumar is not even an Indian citizen. He holds a Canadian passport and his Wikipedia profile describes him as Indian-born Canadian actor, Thackeray said. In the last one year, Akshay Kumars two films have had a message for the people of India. One being Toilet Ek Prem Katha which was about proper sanitation and hygiene and next was Pad Man which was about availability lower cost sanitary napkins for the girls across the nation. Pad Man director R Balki had certain things to say about MNS Chief Raj Thackerays harsh words. Pad Man was a film based on the life of social entrepreneur Arunachalam Muruganantham who worked towards making low-cost sanitary napkins. Speaking about Thackeray, he said that the film was based on someones life so there could be no propaganda. He said that these kinds of films are important and he had no idea what Raj Thackeray had stated. Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar, on the work front, will be seen in Gold.The film will mark the debut of TV actress Mouni Roy in the film industry. It is a sports drama based on Indias first Olympic Gold medal win in hockey as a free country at 1948 London Olympics. The film also stars Amit Sadh and Kunal Kapoor in pivotal roles. It is produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwanis Excel Movies and directed by Reema Kagti.It is slated for August 15, 2018 release.

Madhuri Dixit in, Sanjay Dutt out of Shiddat?
With Sridevi s exuberant daughter stepping in to announce to the world that her late and much-missed mother is being replaced by Madhuri Dixit in the Abhishek Burman-directed Shiddat , the casting of this Karan Johar production has turned somewhat complex. It is reliably learnt that Sanjay Dutt who was to star opposite Sridevi in Shiddat , would now have to be relieved of his duties. Informs the source, There is no way Madhuri will work with Sanjay Dutt.They parted ways as friends and colleagues in 1993 after Subhash Ghais Khalnaayak , vowing never to be associated again. Now that Madhuri has taken over Shiddat from Sridevi it is self-explanatory if Dutt is eased out. In fact when the Sanjay Dutt biopic was being planned by director Raj Kumar Hirani, Madhuri had allegedly made discreet inquiries about her presence in the storytelling and had requested the director that she be left out. I guess its now Sanjay Dutts turn to be left out. Also Read: Madhuri Dixit unveils the first look of her Marathi debut poster on Makar Sankranti
Alia Bhatts mom Soni Razdan reveals details about Bramhastra stars shoulder injury
So now we know who the super-hero is. Alia Bhatt has injured herself while shooting for Ayan Mukerji s super-hero film Brahmastra.But she refuses to take sick leave. The show, as they say, must go on. And if its Alia, the show doesnt just go on. It hurls forward. In spite of her injury, Alia insists on continuing her shooting in Bulgaria. Says Alias mother actress-filmmaker Soni Razdan, She has injured her shoulder in an action sequence in Bulgaria. Alia being Alia is taking it on the chin or on the shoulder as it were in this case. The early reports suggest some ligament damage and a haematoma, so she has to rest the shoulder now for some time and not do any more action. Apart from this she is her usual smiling self. The injury means no more action sequences for Alia for at least two years. Father-figure mentor Karan Johar was toying with the idea of doing an action film with Alia. This would have to wait. Alia Bhatt seems gung-ho about action. But there is another genre she is longing to explore. Doing action is fun as long as I dont get hurt. But what I really want to is a comedy, a full-on slapstick situational comedy. Her next release Meghna Gulzars Raazi is anything but comic. The laughs will have to wait.

Oh No! Shahid Kapoor falls ill on the sets of Batti Gul Meter Chalu
Shahid kapoor who has been shooting in Dehradun for the second schedule of Batti Gul has fallen ill. His wife Mira Rajput and daughter Misha were with him on the set. They had caught a bad cold and flu and now the Padmaavat star has fallen ill. They had to cancel shoot for a day as his voice also wasnt coming out. Shahid who was performing a lawyers scene had a dialogue where he had to shout and hurt his vocal cord. Doctors have asked Shahid to rest.. he will resume the shooting in a couple of days. Now we hope that Shahid gets well soon and resumes his shoot at the earliest. Shahid was in the news recently after some of his video clips from the show Vogue BFFs with Neha Dhupia where wifey Mira made some startling revelations about their sex life and married life in general. Mira told host Neha Dhupia that Shahid is control freak and pretty much controls everything in their lives. Even in bed, he is the one making calls. Mira quipped, He is always telling me what to do. She also later revealed that Shahid is the biggest party pooper and is quiet a bore when it comes to socialising and partying. Mira is known for fearlessly voicing her opinions and often making controversial statements in public. Adding to this, Shahid had the biggest blockbuster of his career with Padmaavat. The film crossed Rs 300 crores in the domestic box office and now, there is no looking back to the talented actor. Also Read : Shahid Kapoor will give Padmaavat bash a miss and this is the reason
