How Salman Khan’s Bollywood friends reacted to his threat of quitting Twitter

LOL Story of the day – How Salman Khan’s Bollywood friends reacted to his threat of quitting Twitter

Sallu Bhaihum aapke saat hai…

Salman Khan had it enough of trollers and those so-called fans who spread negative things about him, his family and even his colleagues and friends, like Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan. In fact, he was so pissed off with them that he let out a volley of tweets lambasting all those idiots who has this keeda in them to always post negative stuff about the stars. He was so angry that he threatened to quit Twitter forever if these people don’t shut up!
Well, the actor’s anger is justifiable, especially when the taunts and tweets get personal and tasteless. We sent our secret reporter around and asked several other stars what they thought of the situation, starting with Mr. Perfectionist, himself…

However, the diplomat that he is, he also advised Salman to not get so emotional…

But Amitabh Bachchan kind of supported Sallu Bhai’s stand…

…Even Anil Kapoor has a word to share with all those Salman-bashers on Twitter…

Ajay Devgn suggested a solution for Bhai on how to handle such unwanted characters…

…even the younger brigade showed their support to Salman. Varun Dhawan had only one thing to say to the trollers….

…While Arjun Kapoor, Salman ka fan, told us how Bhai and himself are totally oblivious to such negativity…

However, the best comment was offered by King Khan himself, in his own charming way…

Disclaimer: The above article is meant to be taken in a light manner. Sometimes, a little laughter is seldom a cause of worry! And please, stay away from negative trolling!

SHOCKING! Ex-lovers Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapoor KISS at Star Guild awards!

OMG! Have the Kaminey lovers patched up? Read on to find the full scoop!

Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra might have called off their relationship on records, but during the recently held Star Guild Awards 2015, the ex-lovers were spotted bonding over intimate talks and exchanging kisses to glory! Like seriously? Yes! Now that’s what we got to hear from the inside hush!

According to a leading daily, though Shahid and Priyanka walked in separately at the red carpet but as soon as they were inside the venue, there was nothing that could intervene their loving camaraderie. The Kaimey co-stars sat close throughout the evening and were no less than being back as a pair. In fact, when Shahid bagged the ‘Best Actor’ award, PC couldn’t resist the joy and instantly gave a peck on his cheek. Now isn’t that some BIG news? That’s not all! Funny man Kapil Sharma was playing the host that evening.

So later, when Shahid stepped on stage to give away an award for one of the categories, the Haider actor teased Kapil saying, “I was sitting between ‘hot’ Tabu and Shraddha Kapoor and now I’m here.”  Tabu missed this joke as she was on call during this gig. But strangely, PC too was on a call around the same time as she posed for the cameras! For the obvious, Kapil didn’t spare this exciting sight and quipped, “Aapki wali ne bhi phone utha liya hai.”

Exclusive: Katrina Kaif’s reaction to the ‘engagement ring’ buzz

Recently during her visit to wish happy birthday to her friend Farah Khan, Katrina was spotted stepping out of the building with one hand in her pocket. Immediately there was talk and chatter that she had an engagement ring, which she was hiding from the photogs. After that her Umang performances on Friday night  came under the scanner, where Phantom heroine was spotted wearing a big fat shiny ring. 

Our source tells us that Kat is highly amused with these constant speculations about her marriage. “She will wear an engagement ring when the time is ready. And it will be for the world to see. She won’t just randomly attend some event wearing it. There is a plan in place in the Kapoor family as far as Ranbir and Katrina go and it will be known to everyone in due time.”

The source also adds that RK and Katrina have indeed exchanged rings, but want to keep it

Upen Patel proposes to Karishma Tanna!

Upen Patel went back into the Bigg Boss house saying he wanted a chance to complete what he had left unfinished. Now we know what it was! Ever since the actor was out, he has been rooting for Karishma Tanna to win the show.

The moment he entered the show, he proposed to the leggy beauty. Says a source, "Upen and Karishma were sitting on the bed and chatting, when suddenly Upen caught hold of her hand and told her that he will put a ring on her finger the moment they are out of the house. He told Karishma that he has always liked her, irrespective of whether she was at her best or worst behavior. He also said that he doesn't care about her past." Upen also gifted her an Elie Saab perfume.

Karishma, who was taken aback by the proposal, said that she needed time to think. The source adds, "Though Karishma seemed flummoxed by Upen's proposal - she told him she doesn't know how to react - she is quite comfortable with it."

Incidentally, the actress already has a boyfriend, the restaurateur Rushabh Choksi, who owns Escobar. In fact, she even keeps saying that she is in an relationship. However, when asked for his reaction Rushabh said, "I have nothing to say. Karishma and I are very good friends and nothing more."

Lisa Haydon replaces Chitrangda Singh as the brand face of Mumbai Heroes

Looks like the year 2015 has started on a good note for Lisa Haydon and she has now replaced the dusky beauty Chitrangda Singh as the brand ambassador of Sohail Khan's cricket team Mumbai Heroes at the CCL. The celebrity cricket league (CCL) that has many Bollywood celebrities participating in the game, is a gala event filled with glamour and sports.

Last year, we spotted Chitrangda along with Huma Qureshi cheering for the team. However, with the new development, it will be Lisa Haydon who will be seen attending these CCL matches along with Huma. It is being said that the replacement happened because the deal to retain Chitrangda as the brand ambassador fell through and hence, Lisa was approached for the same. Bollywood producer and director of the cricket team, Vikas Kapoor however maintained that Chitrangda has non-availability issues and hence Lisa has been asked to come on board. Also we hear that Lisa has agreed travel with players for other matches.

The tournament kick starts on January 10, that is today and the opening match will be between Riteish Deshmukh's team Veer Marathi and Mumbai Heroes that will be held at the The Cricket Club Of India grounds, Mumbai.

Sangram Singh to marry Payal Rohatgi in November after death contract is over


Olympian wrestler Sangram Singh has recently signed a 'Death Contract' with the Commonwealth Heavyweight Championship which is to be held on February 28, at Port Elizabeth in South Africa.

The lethal game, says Sangram, will only leave one of the two players in the ring on his feet at the end of the game.

"Serious injuries are very likely. I'll be pitched against the world wrestling champ Joe Legend for the 'last man standing' match. The last time when I played for this match I broke my nose and my ribs. This time anything can happen. Hence the 'Death Contract' which means if anything happens to me, no one is to blame," says Sangram.

The wrestling champ says he also wants to help other wrestlers financially. "I will use the money that I make from the 'Last Man Standing' match to help my colleagues. There are dozens of promising wrestlers in the country who can't afford proper training. I want to use my name and money to help them."

Shaadi to long-time girlfriend Payal Rohatgi has been pushed to November. "I want to see how the 'Last Man Standing' match goes. I want to concentrate on wrestling throughout the year. Payal and I will marry in November."

Watch: 5 Bollywood songs you must not miss this January

2015 has begun with quite a bang, as far as music is concerned. From Bipasha Basu's Alone to Sonam Kapoor's Dolly Ki Doli and Varun Dhawan's Badlapur to Amitabh Bachchan's Shamitabh, several upcoming films have treated the audience to some good dose of music.
Here's taking a look at five songs that have journeyed to the hearts of people, gaining innumerable hits on Youtube.

Katra (Alone)

Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover's setting-fire-to-the-screen act in the track Katra has been lapped up by the audiences. Apart from some droolworthy chemistry, the number Katra boasts of the sensual voices of Ankit Tiwari and Prakriti Kakkar.

Jee Karda (Badlapur)

An intense Varun Dhawan, an oh-so-hot Huma Qureshi and a beautiful Yami Gautam. Jee Karda from Badlapur has the versatile Sukhwinder Singh on the vocals, and is already a rage among listeners.

Babaji Ka Thullu (Dolly ki Doli)

A pretty Sonam Kapoor in a punky-Indian outfit, giving the 'Babaji ka Thullu' to suitors Rajkummar Rao, Varun Sharma and Pulkit Samrat... This number from Dolly ki Doli is steadily climbing up the charts.

Piddly Loo (Shamitabh)

When Amitabh Bachchan sits on the pot and croons a song, you don't really question anything. You listen to it. It's that unusual an occurence. Piddly Loo from Shamitabh is clearly among the most loved songs of the month.

Khamoshiyan (Khamoshiyan)

If romantic, soothing, intense numbers are what gets you going, the title track of Khamoshiyan is for you. Ali Fazal, Sapna Pabbi and Gurmeet Choudhary on the screen, and Arijit Singh on the speakers. Enough said.

Tevar movie review: Watch this film for Arjun Kapoor’s action avatar!

Tevar movie review: Watch this film for Arjun Kapoor’s action avatar!

A lot has been written about Arjun and Sona’s off screen chemistry and how the two are apparently in a relationship. While they make a cute couple in real life, have they packed a solid punch together onscreen with their film Tevar ? Read the full review of Tevar and find out yourself.

What’s it about

Arjun Kapoor (Pintu Shukla) is a Kabbadi champion who hails from  Agra and believes he is no less than Rambo, Terminator and of course Salman Khan. Whenever a girl or a woman is being harassed, Pintu enters the picture like a knight in shining armour and rescues the damsel-in-distress. That’s how Sonakshi Sinha (Radhika) meets Arjun. Manoj Bajpayee (Gajendra Singh) is a corrupt politician who is head-over-heels in love with Radhika the moment he lays eyes on her. This one-sided love story starts while the Radhika shows off her moves on Radha Nachegi song at a cultural event. The very next day Gajendra Singh ends up proposing Radhika and asks her to marry him. But the latter refuses and that’s when the story takes off. Pintu comes to Radhika’s rescue and the two are on the run thereafter. Do Pintu and Radhika manage to escape from Gajendra Singh and his army of goons? Or does the Kabbadi champion lose his life while saving his ladylove? Well, watch the film to find to out but we are pretty sure it’s not rocket scienece to figure out the rest of the story!

What’s hot

It certainly has to be Arjun Kapoor and his dumdaar performance. We have seen Boney Kapoor’s ladla beta doing action on the big screen before as well but this time he reminded me of his mentor Salman Khan. He is a one man army who can take as many as 10 goons at a time. And what’s commendable is that he makes it look believable. Apart from all the dhishoom-dhishoom, Arjun is also good with his comic timing. Though the story of Tevar is predictable, the Kapoor lad makes the ride enjoyable with his act. After Tevar, I think it’s safe to say that AK can now carry a film solely on his shoulders.

Sonakshi Sinha is back to playing the girl-next-door character in this flick and she is decent throughout. But Sona’s co-star clearly outshines her and therefore there is nothing much to boast about the leading lady of Tevar. Manoj Bajpayee and Raj Babbar also star in the film and they play their parts well. Personally, I think Bajpayee surely has mastered the art of playing dark characters. Yes, he has been playing villainous roles too often but he is just good at it. Music wise, Superman and Joganiya stand out. As for Radha Nachegi, well, it’s a good number but it won’t make you go WOW.
What’s not

As I said in my quick review, Sanjay Kapoor’s production venture has nothing new to offer as far as story is concerned. This film is like an old wine packaged in new bottle. A corrupt politician falls in love with a girl and will go to any extent to marry her. The girl falls for the guy who is doing everything he can to save her from the bad politician. It’s the same old tried and tested formula. Also, in the second half the makers could have done away with few things and made the film shorter. Lastly, Arjun and Sonakshi’s pairing is pleasant but I didn’t find their chemistry oh-so-sizzling. That could be because the two are always on the run. However, the makers could have explored their chemistry in a better way as they share amazing rapport off screen too and that would have translated on 70mm, hai na peeps?


Amit Sharma’s Tevar is the remake of Telugu blockbuster Okkadu. While the original got registers jingling down South, the Hindi version too isn’t bad at all. It’s a typical Bollywood masala film which has all the ingredients to entertain you - naach-gaana, romance, action and comedy! So if you’re planning to watch Tevar this weekend, it wouldn’t be a bad idea. And if you are a Arjun Kapoor fan then I think you shouldn’t miss this one at least for him!

AdTech Ad
Actor Sanjay Dutt arrives back at his residence. Photo: Yogen ShahActor Sanjay Dutt, convicted in the Mumbai serial blasts case, on Thursday left home for jail to surrender on expiry of his 14-day furlough but was back home again, apparently due to lack of coordination between the prison and police authorities on his application seeking an extension of leave of absence."Sanjay Dutt reached Pune jail along with my colleague this afternoon when there was a news flash that the Minister concerned has made a statement that since the application seeking extension of furlough is pending, he (Dutt) does not require to surrender," Bollywood star's lawyer Hitesh Jain said.
"Hence we have given a letter to prison authorities that since such a news has been flashed we will wait for another 24 hours. If there is no word by then, Dutt will surrender tomorrow," he told PTI.
When contacted, Rajendra Dhamane, Deputy Inspector General (prisons), Pune, said, "Sanjay Dutt cited bad health as reason for extension of furlough. We asked the Mumbai Police to verify if the reason cited by the convict is true. We sent them a correspondence but have not received any response from the local police yet."
However, Joint Police Commissioner (Law and Order) Dhanjay Kamlakar, who is the in-charge of all 93 police stations in Mumbai, said, "We have not received any communication from prison authorities to verify anything pertaining to Dutt."
Minister of State for Home Ram Shinde said DIG of Prisons, Pune, has not taken a decision on the extension of Dutt's furlough as yet. "It is upto the authorities to decide whether he should be given an extension or not. If he gets it, fine. If he doesn't, he will have to go back to jail. But no decision has been taken as yet," he told PTI.

The 55-year-old actor, convicted in the serial blasts case for illegal possession an AK-56 rifle and its destruction, was released on a 14-day leave of furlough by the Yerawada Central Jail authorities on December 24 as he wanted to be with his family in the New Year.
Before leaving his home for jail he told reporters that he had requested for an extension of furlough on December 27 which was still under process. "Since the law stipulates that I should surrender myself before the authorities if I am not granted an extension, I am going to do so now," he said.
Dutt had earlier been granted furlough in October 2013 for 28 days on health grounds, followed by a similar leave in December 2013 to tend to his "ailing" wife Manyata.
A controversy had erupted when newspapers published photographs of Manyata reportedly attending a film screening, raising doubts about the actor's claim of his wife's illness.
Dutt is undergoing the remainder of his five-year jail term for possessing illegal firearm that was part of a cache of weapons meant to be used during the 1993 blasts.

Bigg Boss Halla Bol: Farah Khan as a host disappoints, fans miss Salman Khan!

Bigg Boss Halla Bol: Farah Khan as a host disappoints, fans miss Salman Khan!

We asked fans if Farah Khan’s debut as Bigg Boss Halla Bol host was any good. Here is what you guys had to say

When it was revealed that Salman Khan will bid adieu to Bigg Boss 8 and Farah Khan had been roped in to fill in his shoes in the spin off of the popular reality show, fans were shocked with this unexpected turn of events. While many were saddened with Salman’s exit from the show, a hot topic became the centre of discussion among the gossip mongers – Will Farah Khan be as good a host as Salman Khan was?

The first episode of Bigg Boss Halla Bol was aired yesterday and all the speculations and predictions on Farah’s debut were put to rest. We asked fans if they liked the Happy New Year director as the host and this is what they had to say. 60% of Bigg Boss fans said that they missed Salman Khan on the show, indirectly stating that they were disappointed with Farah’s hosting skills. 20% of the fans said that they had lost interest in the show and have stopped watching Bigg Boss all together. Only 20% of the viewers seemed to be happy seeing Farah as the host, as they thought she did a fine job at it.

Looking at the poll results, we are not surprised that Salman’s raw charisma is certainly missed by fans. However, we feel it would be too early to write off Farah as a disappointment, as one would agree that filling Salman’s shoes is a really tough task. With more episodes to come, we hope that Farah manages to recapture the losing interest of fans in the show

Here’s what Salman Khan has promised Jacqueline Fernandez!

Here’s what Salman Khan has promised Jacqueline Fernandez!

There’s definitely something brewing between the Kick co-stars. Read on to find out the full scoop!

So we all know how Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez have retained a special bond, ever since their last blockbuster film Kick. The two seem to have got along quite well and constantly venture out together for various outings. In fact, their latest getaway was the highly controversial Sri Lanka visit. Remember how Jacky defended Salman on the whole issue by tweeting about Sallu’s good heart and generosity? It was really sweet of her!

However, apart from that, what raises our eyebrows even further this time is Sallu’s ‘promise’ to this Sri Lankan beauty. Yes! In one of her recent interviews, Jacky herself made a confession stating that Salman has promised her something. What is it? Is it anything to do with the proposal? Well, yes! But before inclining it to any of those lovie dovie confessions, Jacky has stated this only in context to her next ‘film proposal’ with Salman!

On being asked if she has signed any more films with Salman, the Roy actress said, “No, not as yet, but he promised me something.” Well, knowing how considerate Salman is about Jacky, we think this promise will soon come to play! Can’t wait, right BollywoodGupshupers?

Deepika Padukone to marry Ranveer Singh?

Deepika Padukone to marry Ranveer Singh?

Our in-house astro expert Shradha Salla predicts the future of Bollywood’s favourite couple

Though everyone knows that Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are in a relationship, they have always shied away when questioned about their affair. A few days ago, we reported how Ranveer confessed about his feelings for his ladylove 

when he appeared on the AIB Knockout along with bestie Arjun Kapoor. That’s when we at BollywoodLife thought of checking about the future of the Ram-Leela jodi. Here’s what our astro expert has to say about it…

# Deepika and Ranveer are cupid’s favourite couple. Individually both are ruled by strong planetary positions. Deepika is number 5 person, ruled by Mercury which brings a sense of balance, focus and dedication to everything she does. On the other hand, Singh is ruled by Venus which is all about love, passion, entertainment and following your heart.

# Because of the combination of their energies, the two have a very practical approach towards their relationship.

# From Deepika’s birthday till July, both of them are influenced by the Moon. The Moon’s energy makes people very emotional, sentimental and attached, so if they both balance their relationship, we might just hear some good news based on a stronger commitment.

# Though it’s a bit early for marriage, but it is definitely on both their minds , the only worry here is that the Moon’s energy makes one very moody, so daily issues and small fights should not be prolonged as that can cause irritation.

# As time passes, Ranveer is going to become very serious in the relationship but Deepika might show some inconsistency. On the lighter side, pink is a good colour for both of them to wear when they are around each other. This will help their relationship flourish.
