Film director, writer and producer Anubhav Sinha who has two films lined up for release this year, Mulk and Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai , took a mini work vacation to Bollywoods favourite destination, London last week. Sinha who has shot over 200 music videos till date, will be directing a series of music singles for Anurag Bedi of Zee Music,inspired by American film series Fifty Shades Of Grey.Each video aesthetically shot will touch upon the various shades of love such as yearning, fantasy, desire, infatuation. Bringing to life Sinhas vision in the first two of these videos will be Jannat fame actress Sonal Chauhan who is busy shooting for Mahesh Manjrekars period based drama. New talentwill be contributing to the music of the series which will release towards the latter half the year. The next three videos will feature Amyra Dastur who Sinha is in talks with. Speaking on the same, Anubhav Sinha said, It has been indeed a long time since I have directed a music video and since both my forthcoming films have no quintessential Bollywood song and dance I thought it would be nice to satiate my long pending desire before I start shooting for my next film. I feel love today is a highly misunderstood and underrated concept and while India is known to be home to the Kamasutra, the common man shies away from this beautiful masterpiece as its still considered a taboo topic. I wanted to explore various shades of this wonderful emotion which seems to have acquired new meanings today. Sonal Chauhan was the ideal mix of grace, panache and appeal. Each single will touch upon a topic while the entire series will be called 5 Shades Of Love. Anubhav Sinha has wrapped uptwo of his mainstream projects within a span of six months and who will resume directing his next starting later this year.
Prernaa Arora of KriArj Entertainment alleged of fraud by her masseuse
Trouble doesnt seem to end for Prernaa Arora who has been facing legal actions from several Bollywood producers. While she has already lost projects like Parmanu The Story of Pokhran Kedarnath and Batti Gul Meter Chalu , now her masseuse has allegedly taken legal action against the producer. Her masseuse, Khairun Mukhtar Ahmed has filed a non-cognizable complaint against Arora for insulting and hitting her. According to the statement provided by Khairun, Prernaa Arora refused to pay her pending bills which amounts up to Rs. 3.75 lakhs. In her complaint Ahmed asserted that Prernaa had given her a cheque of Rs. 1.25 lakhs [out of the said amount], however, the said cheque bounced due to lack of funds. Elaborating further on her relation with Prernaa, Khairun reportedly stated that Prernaa had promised her a salary of Rs. 75,000 per month for massages that will need to be provided between midnight and 8 am. She also mentioned that she had to bear the travelling charges of commuting from Santacruz to Jogeshwari on her own. Desperate for cash for her husbands cancer treatment and later for his loans, Khairun had agreed for this arrangement. However, Khairun also stated that despite this she wasnt paid her salary for five months. Post the delay in payment, when Khairun apparently approached Prernaa Arora for the pending salary, the filmmaker initially reassured her by providing a cheque. Unfortunately, the said cheque bounced, and Khairun approached the filmmaker yet again, but this time the producer not just argued with her but also beat her masseuse up and shut the door on her face. Owing to the incident, Khairun Mukhtar Ahmed filed a complaint against Prernaa Arora on the charges of section 504 [Intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace] and 323 [Punishment for voluntarily causing hurt]. On the other hand, Prernaa Arora has a different story to tell. According to her, Khairun was caught stealing approximately Rs. 56,000 from her home. The masseuse was allegedly caught by the bodyguards at the Arora residence and it is since then that Khairun is barred from entering her house. Also, Prernaa has maintained that if Khairun has any bills or invoices of her pending money then the payments would be made immediately.

Katrina Kaif and Varun Dhawan are not a romantic pair in Remo DSouzas dance film
Remo DSouza, currently riding the crest of success with Race 3 is all set to do what he likes doing best: make stars dance on screen. His Varun Dhawan Katrina Kaif starrer which goes on the floors early next year will move away from expectations. And how. According to sources in the know, the film wont pair Varun Dhawan with Katrina Kaif. In fact, there wont be a romantic interest for either Varun or Katrina. They will barely have scenes together. This will be a film about dancing, not romancing, says the source. Every song-and-dance piece in the film is likely to be shot at the price of a small fortune. The producers will spare no expenses to ensure every song and dance is the most expensive ever shot, and thats no empty boast. Both Varun and Katrina are working on improving their dancing skills beyond anything that theyve attempted so far.

Is Priyanka Chopra dating Nick Jonas on the rebound?
Priyanka Chopra and American singer-musician Nick Jonas look happy together. And now with Jonas family coming forward in praise of Priyanka, its just a matter of time before she acknowledges her big trans-cultural romance. However, friends back home in Mumbai are wondering if Priyanka is trying to ease the pain of a broken heart with a romance on the rebound. All of Mumbai knows Priyanka was in a long stormy relationship with a major Bollywood superstar. Says a close friend of the actress, When this superstar couldnt offer her the stability of marriage, and still wanted the relationship to continue, Priyanka did a very brave thing. She put an end to the relationship firmly and moved on instead of hanging on to a relationship with no future. The resolute stand taken by Priyanka Chopra over a relationship that had no future echoes what the great Nargis did when Raj Kapoor couldnt offer her the security of marriage. Nargis firmly terminated all personal and professional association with Raj Kapoor and married Sunil Dutt. So is Priyanka Chopra doing the same in this case?

Rajkumar Hirani has confirmed in recent media reports that he is planning a sequel to 3 Idiots.Although, it is yet to be seen if the same cast of Aamir Khan , Madhavan, Sharman Joshi and Kareena Kapoor Khan will be repeated. Even though its been a decade since the film has been released, it is never too late for a sequel, especially that too the blockbuster 3 Idiots.The film managed to become not just a cult but one of Aamir Khans most successful films. It not only rocked the Indian box office but also Chinese box office when it released in the country. And this news has only triggered the curiosity of movie fans. But alas! Rajkumar Hirani doesnt have too much information on the film front. However, he has asserted in reports that he is thrilled to take the franchise ahead. He went on to add that he is working on something with his co-writer Abhijaat Joshi. Yet he refrained to delve deeper on that since all of it is in the initial stages.

WHAT! Ranveer Singh was the FIRST choice for Sanju, but heres how Ranbir Kapoor bagged the role
Ranbir Kapoor will be seen in Rajkumar Hiranis Sanju which will release on June 29 th.The film has garnered a lot of buzz because of course, the subject itself is so controversial and interesting but also it will be something else to see Ranbir playing the role of Bollywoods original bad boy: Sanjay Dutt.Ranbir, in Sanjus bearing, is both believable and impressive and that has piqued our interest even more! But do you know? Ranbir was not Vidhu Vinod Chopras first choice to play the lead character? Oh Yeah! He wanted Ranveer Singh to step into the shoes of Sanju because he has the madness, flamboyance and emotional depth to play this complicated, conflicted part but the director Raju Hirani was pretty sure that Ranbir would be the right choice. Ranbir Kapoor himself was extremely skeptical about playing the part of Dutt and portray his stranger than fiction life on big screen. He even said that when Raju called him up he hoped it was not about the Sanjay Dutt biopic. The Bramhastra actor read the script and was mesmerized by it. He said that he was dumbfounded reading it and was left asking, did this really happen? He was sold right there. Later, looking at Ranbirs remarkable transformation, Vidhu Vinod Chopra stated that he had to eat his words as the Kapoor scion became Dutt with both: swagger and soul. Sanju stars Sonam Kapoor Paresh Rawal Manisha Koirala , Dia Mirza, Vicky Kaushal in lead roles along with Karishma Tanna, Jim Sarbh , and others. Ranveer Singh, on the other hand, is busy filming Rohit Shetty s Simmba and has just wrapped up Zoya Akhtars Gully Boy.Also Read: Ranveer Singh is beefing up for Rohit Shettys Simmba and his new look is intriguing
