I still get anxious before my movie's release: Amitabh Bachchan

Even after his prolific four decades in the Bollywood, megastar Amitabh Bachchan says he still gets cold feet before the release of his films. “We are always anxious about every product that we do. It is like an examination for us, a test and we are anxious to know whether the work we have done is appreciated by the audiences or not,” said Bachchan, who is here to attend the third Indian Film Festival of Melbourne (IFFM). Fresh from his last release, 'Bhootnath Returns', a sequel to 2008 horror-comedy of the same name, Bachchan is gearing up for a busy year as he has three films on his plate, along with TV shows. “I have got R Balki, Shoojit Sircar's film and a production with Vidhu Vinod Chopra. I have a TV serial that I have been working on. That should finish by June-July and I have another TV show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' in August,” he said.

 

 

Zac Efron and Lupita Nyong'o Cast in Star Wars Episode 7?

The cast of Star Wars: Episode 7 was revealed last week and it seemed from the announcement that director JJ Abrams intended to keep the film free of A-list stars. However, the fact that Daisy Ridley was the only new female cast member joining the franchise led to the belief that some key names were withheld for the sake of surprise. Now, a source close to the production and several obsessive Star Wars fans claim that there's evidence to suggest Zac Efron and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o will be playing major roles in the highly anticipated new film. Both stars were rumored to be part of the production since before last week's announcement, and reports immediately began to circulate that Abrams hoped to keep their casting a secret.

Kamaal R Khan ready to pay 1 crore to see Sunny Leone dance?

It seems the Sunny Leone- Kamaal R Khan war has intensified as the former adult star has again complained to the police against Kamaal R Khan for defaming her on Twitter. The actress is taking police help against Khan after he recently tweeted that he is willing to pay Rs. 1 crore to see Sunny Leone perform at Digvijay Singh's wedding. The report says that Khan had written, "I request to Digvijay Singh Ji to have a strip show of Sunny Leone in the function of his marriage and I will pay Rs 1 crore to the Congress party fund." In response to this insulting tweet, Sunny Leone's lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee will file a fresh complaint against Khan.

Shailene Woodley cut from Amazing Spiderman franchise?

Divergent star Shailene Woodley recently cast doubt on whether she'll play Mary Jane Watson in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, as was originally expected when she was cast in the role in 2012. Woodley claimed to have “no idea” whether she'd be in The Amazing Spider-Man 3, and admitted that her heart might not be in it anyway. “I don't even know that I would want to do two franchises at this point,” she said. She had won the role of MJ back in 2012. The plan at the time was to have her appear in a small role (essentially a cameo) in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and then to ramp up the character's presence in The Amazing Spider-Man 3. However, after Woodley had already shot her scenes, Webb decided to cut the character completely since he did not want any attention to be derailed from the 'sacred' relationship between Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy.
