SAAHO: Will the release date of the Prabhas, Shraddha Kapoor starrer be pushed to August 30?
There have been many reports about the Prabhas, Shraddha Kapoor starrer Saaho and its release date. Earlier there were reports that the film will not be able to maintain its release date of August 15. While the makers rubbished the same, they decided to put an end to it and even released the teaser of the film. The latter received a great response but the rumours about the delay in the release of Saaho have surfaced yet again! The Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor film was expected to have a perfect weekend with August 15 as the release date but it seems that Saaho is facing some post production issues. Going by the high octane teaser, it is needless to say that the film will have extensive effects when it comes to stunts. It seems that the makers will need some more time to complete this work on the film and hence, they may have to push the release two weeks further. If reports and sources are to be believed, the film will release on August 30. While the official announcement about the same is yet to be made, it is also being said that the trailer release date of the film too is yet to be finalized. On the other hand, if Saaho was to release on August 15, there were two other Bollywood releases scheduled on the same day. One is Akshay Kumar starrer Mission Mangal and the other is John Abraham starrer Batla House ! Coming to Saaho , the film will release in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. The Sujeeth directorial will also star Neil Nitin Mukesh, Jackie Shroff , Mahesh Manjrekar, Mandira Bedi amongst others.

Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharmas productions amongst five Netflix originals
Netflix, on July 16, announced five new original series across a variety of genres including young adult, drama, thriller, horror, and comedy. With deadly zombies, scary gangsters and daring friends, these incredibly diverse Indian stories are for mainstream audiences in India and around the world. Bela Bajaria, VP, International Originals, Netflix, said, India is home to some of the worlds greatest stories. Its been thrilling to watch these amazing storytellers embrace the artistic freedom possible at Netflix to create entertaining stories. Audiences everywhere will love these five inventive series set in stories of horror, drama, and comedy. Continuing Netflixs investment in Indian content and long-term commitment to the Indian creative community, the five series will be developed in collaboration with leading Indian studios from Shah Rukh Khan s Red Chillies Entertainment and Anushka Sharma and Karnesh Sharmas Clean Slate Films to Mutant Films. Presenting the Netflix slate of upcoming series over the next year: Bombay Begums: In contemporary urban India, five women, across generations, wrestle with desire, ethics, personal crises and vulnerabilities to own their ambition. As glass ceilings are shattered and hearts are broken, difficult choices have to be made. And as each woman strives to find her own truth, they find in each other an unexpected understanding and the sliver of a bond. Bombay Begums is created, written and directed by Alankrita Shrivastava and executive produced by Chernin Entertainment and EndemolShine India. Speaking about the development, Alankrita Shrivastava said, Collaborating with Netflix has been extremely exciting and fulfilling because they see the urgency and value of women telling their own stories, through the female gaze. Bombay Begums is an attempt to tell a story about the lives of urban Indian women, as honestly as I can. I hope that women (and maybe some men!) can connect to this story, no matter what their background, because maybe were all trying to find ourselves and our place in this world. Mai: Following a deep personal tragedy, the docile, 47-year-old wife-and-mother, Sheel, finds herself accidentally sucked into a rabbit hole of violence and power. Ensuing entanglement with white collar crime and politics that forever changed her and the world she inhabits. Mai has Anushka Sharma & Karnesh Sharmas Clean Slate Films as the executive producers and is written by Atul Mongia along with Tamal Sen, Amita Vyas, with Sudip Sharma as a creative producer. Talking about the show, Anushka Sharma said, This is my second collaboration with Netflix after Bulbul and we are again looking to disrupt the kind of content audiences are consuming. We at Clean Slate Films have been dedicated to making clutter-breaking, powerful stories since our first production and we are looking forward to push the content envelope. The creative freedom to be able to translate these stories to screens that reach a global audience is exciting for us, which is why Netflix is such an important partner. Mai is an exciting work of fiction that tells the story of a middle-class Indian woman who leads a double-life of a don. At a time when audiences globally are appreciating differential content, Mai will hopefully intrigue them and entertain them thoroughly. Betaal: A remote village becomes the theatre of a breathless battle when a two-century-old Betaal, a British Indian Army officer, and his battalion of zombie redcoats are unleashed. With Indian police pitted against the undead army, hapless villagers are trapped in a horrific, edge-of-your-seat conflict. Betaal is Red Chillies Entertainments second Netflix series, in collaboration with Ghouls Patrick Graham as the writer/director and showrunner, along with Nikhil Mahajan as the director and Suhani Kanwar as a writer. It will be executive produced by Blumhouse, known to design some of the best horror content and Ivanhoe Elaborating on the development Patrick Graham said, Indian legend is filled with tales that thrill, chill and bring the audience to the edge of their seat. Its a pleasure working with Netflix again on Betaal and to be able to tap the narrative goldmine of Indian stories for a series that brings to life universal conflicts in the engaging and immersive zombie horror genre. Messy: Mumbais rising standup comic, Beanie, struggles to balance a career in comedy with pleasing a yuppie day-job boss, peculiar BFF, persistent parents, and proposal-popping boyfriend. Messy is her quest to find her own voice and get her life together in the midst of all the mayhem. American actor and director, Ravi Patel stars in the series which he has created and co-written with Neel Shah. The series is co-produced by The Districts David Bernad and Ruben Fleischer and Mutant Films Seher Aly Latif & Shivani Saran. Speaking about the series Ravi Patel said, Im excited to work on a story of a strong female lead and voice as we go on this journey with Messy. This is a story about a girl finding herself and her place in the world while living in a big city, and were hoping to create a relatable and authentic story that has a universal resonance. The character is not unlike the average urban Indian woman, grappling with various social pressures while nurturing her sense of humour throughout. With Netflix, we have a partner and platform which supports absolute artistic freedom, and can help package this in an engaging manner while taking the story to women the world over. Masaba Masaba: This scripted series based on real-life moments from Masaba Guptas life follows her unique background, the diverse worlds she straddles across fashion and family, and her foray back into the dating world. Masabas life is a glorious mess, and shes not afraid to show that to the world. An inspirational, joyous celebration of her life, this fun series will be packed with tongue-in-cheek humor, enacted by the mother-daughter duo, Masaba and Neena Gupta themselves. The genre-bending series is created and produced by Ashvini Yardis Viniyard Films and will be directed by Sonam Nair. Expressing her excitement, Masaba Gupta said, Im a huge fan of Netflix and the kind of diverse content it houses. So when the makers approached me with the idea of a show inspired by my life, I was thrilled. Its been a rollercoaster, honestly, and I feel that the moments Ive experienced are both unique to my journey and relatable to people the world over. This series will be an amalgamation of my experiences, personally and professionally. I cant wait for the audience to watch it. ALSO READ: THIS is the title of Red Chillies third project with Netflix
Hrithik Roshan starrer Super 30 collections hit the roof; Anand Kumar is over the moon
The collections tell their own story. And a pretty spectacular one at that. The box office collections of Hrithik Roshan starrer Super 30 show an unprecedented growth, growing by almost 55 60 percent in some places on Day 2 and even more on Day 3. Anand Kumar on whose life this moving and inspiring film is made can barely contain his excitement. Nothing has come to me easily in life. If I had to struggle to educate the children whom a section of society thought to be fit only for lowly work and jobs, then I also had to struggle to see the film on my struggle being made and completed. As you know, Anurag Basu was to originally direct the film. We spent nearly two years meeting and collaborating. But that didnt work out. Now that its finally happened I am happy beyond words. Anand has words of praise for the writer and director. The scriptwriter Sanjiv Dutta and director Vikas Bahl worked relentlessly to give shape to my life on screen. Anand intends to celebrate the success of his bio-pic with close friends and family. Unfortunately I dont have too many friends. In Bihar, the joy of seeing someone else succeed is almost unknown. Here if you achieve success in realizing your dream they try to pull you down. I suspect the films success will give rise to renewed debate on how facts have been distorted to make me look good in the story. But I know the truth about what Ive gone through in life.
