We all know how auspicious the festival of Eid is for Bollywood superstar, Salman Khan. The actor always has a movie releasing around that time and boy, they all shatter box-office records! This year was no different as Sultan opened to packed houses. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the movie was praised by the critics, too. The Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor won accolades for his performance, and even his co-star, Anushka Sharma, made a mark as Aarfa, a strong-minded wrestler. Apart from Sultan, a lot more happened in Bollywood in the past month. Read on to get a recap of the gossip.
Sex Comedy Fizzles at the Box Office
The third installment of the Masti film series, Great Grand Masti, released a week after Sultan. The movie was supposed to hit theaters on July 22nd, but due to an online leak, the makers had to release it a week in advance. The film failed and was panned by everyone who watched it. Guess 2016 will be the year when sex comedies finally die a slow but much-desired death.
Dishoom Fares Well
Dishoom had everything going for it. It was the next big Bollywood release after Sultan and the promos had generated a lot of buzz. The movie has gotten decent reviews and is already considered a hit by trade analysts. Varun Dhawan, in particular, is supposed to be hilarious in this buddy cop film.
A Flying Jatt Trailer Out
We all know how good Tiger Shroff is at performing gravity-defying stunts. Now, in his upcoming movie, A Flying Jatt, he plays the role of a superhero, who has to save the world from a bad guy. After the success of Baaghi, there are high expectations from this film, that’s directed by Remo D'souza.
Ranveer Singh – Deepika Padukone engaged?
There were rumors that lovebirds, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone, are engaged and will get married early next year. Deepika, however, claimed that she’s neither engaged, pregnant, nor is she planning to tie the knot. Well, we’ll have to wait and see if the news of the couple’s engagement is true or not.
Baar Baar Dekho's Kala Chashma Launched
