Saaho passed by CBFC with U/A certificate; films runtime and other details inside!

Saaho passed by CBFC with U/A certificate; films runtime and other details inside!
One of the biggest or arguably the biggest film of the year, Saaho , is now less than 10 days away from the release. The trailers have made it evident that the kind of action showcased in the film is the first of its kind in Indian cinema. The presence of Prabhas, who became a pan-India superstar with Baahubali , has further added to the hype. Hence, the makers took the brave decision of not dubbing the film in Hindi but instead to shoot it in Hindi simultaneously. The film sadly got delayed due to extensive VFX and post-production work. But now the film is ready and as per the latest update, the film has managed to get a censor certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). The action packed entertainer has got a U/A certificate. The source says, The film has been passed by the CBFC. Very few cuts have been ordered and these were mostly because of the action. Some action scenes are too violent and the CBFC members felt it was not needed. The makers understood their point and agreed to tone down these violent sequences. Once that was done, a U/A certificate was awarded. When asked about the films duration, the source answered, The films runtime is 2 hours 54 minutes. It shouldnt be a problem as the narrative is quite fast-paced and theres lots happening in the film. Also, this is the year when two of the biggest blockbusters Avengers: Endgame and Kabir Singh had duration of 2 hours 55 minutes and 3 hours 2 minutes respectively. So lets not raise eyebrows due to a films supposed long length. If the content is strong, theres no reason why Saaho shouldnt work with the audiences, notwithstanding the duration. Besides Prabhas, Saaho stars Shraddha Kapoor Jackie Shroff , Neil Nitin Mukesh, Murali Sharma, Chunky Panday, Mandira Bedi and Mahesh Manjrekar. Jacqueline Fernandez features in a special appearance in a song. It is directed by Sujeeth and releases worldwide on August 30.

Shocking: Sleazy Sridevi titled film to receive restraining order

Shocking: Sleazy Sridevi titled film to receive restraining order
How far can a filmmaker go in pursuit of the audiences attention without seeming intrusive? Sridevi Bungalow is the title given to a film directed by some unknown chap named Prashanth Mambully. It was announced a few months ago with Priya Prakash Varrier and immediately invited the wrath of Sridevi fans. The teaser showed Priya Varrier lying inert in a bath-tub, a distasteful reference to the real Sridevis tragic end. The utterly reprehensible attempt to cash in on the legendary iconic Divas name and reputation must be condemned by all her fans and admirers and must be discouraged by film industry which hero-worships the late actress. Instead we have out-of-work actors like Arbaaz Khan pitching in with their two-bit. The latest to join the cast of this corny anti-homage is a certain foreigner named Georgia Andriani whose only claim to fame is her proximity to the aforementioned Arbaaz Khan (whose only claim to fame is that he is Salman Khan s brother). While Sridevis hurt and incensed husband Boney Kapoor who has just returned from a wedding in Bali is looking at what further legal remedy he can seek a source close to Boney says, He is disgusted by all those who have chosen to be associated with this lurid project. When he saw the first look of this shady film showing a woman in a bathtub and the films title Sridevi Bungalow Boney had sent a legal notice to the producer. But so far theyve ignored the notice. Boney intends to take even more strict legal action asking for a restraining order against using Sridevis name in the title. They can make what they likeits a free world. But they cant use that iconic name. It is disgusting to see star-siblings and now even girlfriends of star-siblings being given roles in Hindi films. Nepotism never flourished more brazenly in Bollywood.

The real reason why Sanjay Leela Bhansali Salman Khan fell-out

The real reason why Sanjay Leela Bhansali  Salman Khan fell-out
The reason for Salman Khan s patch-up with his director-friend Sanjay Leela Bhansali : opportunism. The reasons for their fall-out are being falsely deflected from the truth just because a cover-up suits their purposes. But heres what really happened. Bhansali and Khan were really close friends during the making of Khamoshi: The Musical and HumDil De Chuke Sanam , so close that Bhansalis mother said she had two sons. During HumDil De Chuke Sanam Salman was not pleased with the ending. He wanted Aishwarya to walk away with him, Salman, and not with Ajay Devgn at the end. Salman brought his buddy Sooraj Barjarya to meet and convince Bhansali that the proper conclusion to the love triangle was that Salman should get Aishwarya. But Bhansali stuck to his guns. Devgn. When Bhansali announced his third film Devdas Salman naturally expected to be in it. He was shocked and disgusted out of his wits when Devdas was announced with Salmans arch rival Shah Rukh in the lead. Then began Salmans abuses, curses and vile outbursts against his friend, now a foe. Just because Bhansali had signed another hero. Salman stopped talking to Bhansali. But then again they gradually began bonding. And Bhansali in his effort to mend bridges with his buddy sided with Salman when Salman and Aishwarya broke up. Bhansali then decided to make Bajirao Mastani with Salman and Kareena Kapoor Khan.They did a photoshoot together and so impressed was Salman with the results that he immediately called up director Priyadarshan and askedno, commanded him to make Kyun Ki with Salman and Kareena, thereby killing the freshness of Bhansalis pairing in proposed epic. Bhansali and Salman didnt speak for years. But time and of course timely tie-ups heal everything. Today they are back together. Salman has forgotten all the abuses he hurled at Bhansali. Bhansali has forgotten them too. Shall we proceed?
