With the grand celebrations of Eid, Shah Rukh Khan is now gearing up for the release of his upcoming romantic film, Jab Harry Met Sejal.The film brings back SRK and Anushka Sharma in quirky roles. The films full-fledged trailer has not been released yet but is being released in mini-trailers. In one of the mini trailers, Anushka Sharma hands over an indemnity bond to SRK mentioning that there wont be any legal problems if they end up having intercourse. Well, this did not sit well with Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chairman Pahlaj Nihalani.He also demanded that if he gets one lakh votes from the common people in its support, he will clear the usage of intercourse. On Monday, during Eid celebrations, Shah Rukh Khan spoke to media about the same stating, I think I am below 18, so I cannot vote (laughed). Its just the beginning of the trailers, the entire film is left. On a serious note, neither I, nor anyone in the film Imtiaz, Irshad (lyricist Irshad Kamil) sahab, Pritam , Anushka, Red Chillies, writers or anyone would use any disrespectful word, that hurts a family or anyones sentiment. We are yet to send the film to the censors and they should watch the whole film to decide. Maybe, out of context, he (Pahlaj Nihalani) did not like the words and if he didnt like it then we will change it. When they will watch the film and understand the full context, hopefully, they will understand. Directed by Imtiaz Ali and produced by Gauri Khan under Red Chillies Entertainment banner, Evelyn Sharma and Sayani Gupta also feature in the film. Jab Harry Met Sejal is releasing on August 4.
Is Ajay Devgn all set to play the coolest godman in India? If reliable sources are to be believed, Ajay Devgn who was last seen in the underwhelming self-directed home production Shivaay may soon don the saffron for the role of Baba Ramdev. The Baba, known to be colourful quirky and quite a scene-stealer in public spaces, definitely has a huge success story to prop up his image. Devgn is keen to explore the image. The earlier plan was to produce a television serial on Baba Ramdev with the talented Death In The Gunj actor Vikrant Massey in the lead. But after Vikrant developed a nose-in-the-air attitude about television, Devgn who was to produce the serial, has taken the story back to the board. In all likelihood he will now produce a big-screen bio-pic on Baba Ramdev and will cast himself as the scene stealing Baba. Says a source, Talks of doing big-sceen bio-pic on Baba Ramdev gained credence only after Ajay Devgn decided to step in the role. With his purported epic on the Battle of Sargarhi showing no sign of progress it is full-throttle ahead with the Baba Ramdev bio-pic for Devgn.
