Hrithik Roshan RESUMES SHOOTING for the YRF film with Tiger Shroff (details inside)
Hrithik Roshan has two major movies coming up. While one is a biopic on the mathematician Anand Kumar called Super 30 the other one is yet untitled film helmed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Yash Raj Films starring Tiger Shroff and Vaani Kapoor in the lead roles. Hrithik had taken a short break as he was busy with his dad Rakesh Roshans surgery and cancer therapy. Hrithik had prioritised his dads treatment over everything else and therefore was unable to shoot the movie with Tiger Shroff but now, since Rakesh Roshan has completed his treatment, he is back on the film. He even took to Twitter to thank everyone who prayed for his filmmaker father. He wrote, And hes up and about. Power of love! Thank you all for being with him and helping him power through. Today was a great day. Now that Papa Roshan is alright, Hrithik can concentrate on his film. It has been a while since we saw Hrithik Roshan on the big screen. His last film was Kaabil which came out in 2017. It will be interesting to see him in two very different roles in near future. While in Super 30 , he plays a very gritty, intense role, he would be seen as a typical commercial hero in the movie with Tiger Shroff. It will also be interesting to see the two dancing stars share screen space with each other. The film will have oodles of action and dance. On personal front, he just celebrated his birthday a few days ago and seems to be in a very good place with his ex-wife Sussanne Khan with whom he has been going on joint vacations all through the year.

Is Shah Rukh Khan really doing DON 3?
So okay. We all know Shah Rukh Khan has opted out of the astronaut Rakesh Sharmas biopic Saare Jahan Se Accha produced by Siddharth Roy Kapur because he didnt want to do another space film after Zero.So far so convincing. But, it was the second part of that announcement, stating that instead of the Rakesh Sharma bio-pic, SRK would be doing the third part of the Don franchise, that turns out to be an intriguing bit of fabrication. Sources close to the Don series say this is just not true. There is no Don 3. Not yet. Director Farhan Akhtar has no script for a third installment. Shah Rukh and Farhan have been struggling for three years to come up with a tenable idea of Don 3. Theyre yet to crack the plot, says the source who wonders where these bogus reports on Don 3 came from. It made sense for SRK s team to announce his exit from the Rakesh Sharma biopic. But what was the point of mentioning a substitute project that doesnt exist? Farhan has no plans of starting Don 3 in the near future. Right now, he only wants to concentrate on his acting career. He is starting his new sports film Toofan directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra which will keep him busy for the next one year. Directing Don 3 or any other film is not on his mind at all, says the source. If you are wondering why Farhan Akhtar is silent over this misinformation, the answer is very simple. The guy just doesnt want to contradict any positive media report on Shah Rukh Khan. Also Read: Find out why Shah Rukh Khan does not want to be a director

Is the Manikarnika producer really hospitalized?
Perhaps it is the stress of being seen as the face and creative helmer of one of the most expensive films every produced in India. But Kangana Ranaut is in denial. Apparently she doesnt believe that her Manikarnika producer Kamal Jain is hospitalized. At a special screening of the film on Sunday when an actor from the film asked about his health, she testily replied he was doing ok and that an unnecessary hullabaloo is being created about the producers health when it is only a lung infection Kanganas dismissive attitude to Kamal Jains supposedly critical condition is shared by another actor from the film who wonders, Why were Kamal Jains wife and daughter at the special screening if he was really in the hospital? Could this be publicity for the film? Just as a few days ago, the Manikarnika team tried to drag the Karni Sena into the picture. The Karni chief had to stoutly deny any interest in Manikarnika.In fact an opinion going around in the film industry is that Kamal Jain is not even partially as ill as its being made out to be. He has certainly not suffered a paralytic stroke. This false news was spread so Jain could escape from being part of the films final promotion before release. Jain knows the fate that lies in store for Manikarnika , says an informed source. Also Read: Manikarnika row Kamal Jain responds to complaint of non-payment of dues

Find out why Shah Rukh Khan does not want to be a director
Shah Rukh Khan has explored majorly all the areas of the industry with great expertise. While theres one mainstream role in the industry thats still left for him to explore, Bollywoods Badshah says he has no plans of directing a movie. We are all aware of how SRK does everything with precision, he says he does not have the time required to be a director. The reason is none other than his little bundle of happiness, AbRam Khan. Shah Rukh says he does not want to miss out on AbRams growing years because being a director will require him to be locked away in a room with a script for at least two years. Despite being a multi tasker, he feels that working on a script with Khan Jr. around, is next to impossible. As much as we wouldve loved watching King Khan on the directors chair, we just cant help but be awed with the love he has for his little one.
