Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria, Ananya Panday’s Student of the Year 2 motion posters are old wine in new bottles

Three brand new motion posters of Student of the Year 2 have been released by the makers. But brand new only because of their time of release. As for the content we have already seen the three leads – Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria, Ananya Panday – in these avatars on the first posters. The purpose of making motion posters is lost here, due to a rehash of the same look. We are sure creative geniuses at Dharma Productions can do better than this.

While this movie will mark Tiger’s first collab with the production house, it will be the debut vehicle for Ananya and Tara. The three actors get their individual motion posters, with each one of them dressed to kill. The posters switch to text, “Welcome to the batch of 2018”. We are all set for new info on how the movie is shaping up. It is about time the production house dropped a teaser.

BollywoodLife was the first to reveal that Sidharth Malhotra and Varun Dhawan will be returning to the school of cool, with cameo appearances in SOTY 2. The two actors will soon head out to the sets to shoot for their parts in the film. However, the length of their cameos will not be longer that Kajol’s in Disco Deewane or Fawad Khan’s in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

Student of the Year 2 will see Punit Malhotra in the director’s chair, while Karan Johar has only limited himself to production responsibilities. The cast and crew recently returned from Mussoorie after shooting for the film. They revisited many of the original locations for the sequel. Stay tuned to BollywoodLife for more updates.

Not Kangana Ranaut, Amyra Dastur to play Rajkummar Rao’s love interest in Mental Hai Kya

Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao will reunite onscreen, after Queen, for Mental Hai Kya. The crazy teaser posters of the film sent the internet into a tizzy. Then came the pictures from the sets, in which we saw the two actors wearing the quirkiest clothes. We thought that these two will play each other’s romantic interests in the movie, but that is not the case. It has been revealed that Amyra Dastur has joined the cast of Mental Hai Kya. And she will be Rajkummar’s romantic pairing in the film.

With Mental Hai Kya, Amyra has added another interesting project to her kitty. She was last seen in Kaalakaandi. She has also shot for Leena Yadav’s Rajma Chawal where she stars alongside Rishi Kapoor. Recently it was announced that she will be playing the love interest of Ali Fazal in the remake of Telugu super hit film Prasthanam, titled as Prasthaanam, which will also star Sanjay Dutt.

Talking about Mental Hai Kya, Rajkummar had said that the script is unique and unconventional. Kangana has said that she chose the film for a personal reason. In an interview with Mid-day, Kangana said, “The way my life unfolded in the past few years, I realised there was so much stigma attached to being different. ‘Mental’ or ‘psycho’ were the terms used to shame me, but these can’t be used casually as swear words. When this script came along, I knew I had to do it to break the stigma around it. High time we made individuality aspirational.”

Of how her film deals with mental illness, Kangana said, “We won’t show people as pitiable, sympathy-seeking characters. We’ll portray the issue with sensitivity. The film takes a stand against equating individuality with madness.”

Salman Khan reveals what led him to write the lyrics of Race 3 song Selfish

Salman Khan has sung songs before, but his upcoming film Race 3 marks his first time as a lyricist. The superstar says he had only penned a few thoughts, which the team loved and were eventually used as lyrics for the song Selfish. It is the second song from the action entertainer and will be released on Friday.

Talking about it, Salman said in a statement: “While discussing the creative for the song, I penned down a few thoughts on paper in sync with the plot of the film, which is about the selfishness within the family. When the music director Vishal Mishra heard it, he got extremely excited and said he will come back with a tune for the same. I said, ‘But this is a part of a conversation and not lyrics’. However, he insisted to use the thoughts as it is for the song. Everyone loved the thoughts and wanted it to be used for the song.” (ALSO READ: Iulia Vantur to croon Salman Khan’s lyrics in Race 3 song Selfish)

Featuring Salman, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol and Daisy Shah, Selfish is a romantic song. It is sung by Pakistani singer Atif Aslam, who has delivered Pehli nazar and Beintehaan for the earlier instalments of the Race franchise.

Race 3, directed by Remo D’souza, will release on Eid this year. Produced by Salman Khan Films and Ramesh Taurani under the banner of Tips Films, it also features Anil Kapoor and Saqib Saleem.

Hrithik Roshan takes up Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore’s fitness challenge, gets trolled

In what could have been a motivating video for millions of his followers to pursue fitness, Hrithik Roshan has found himself on the other side of the law, well almost. Responding to Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore’s tweet that nominated the actor, cricketer Virat Kohli and badminton player Saina Nehwal to join a social media campaign to encourage people to stay fit, Hrithik recorded a video of himself riding a bicycle on teh bust streets of Mumbai. In the video that he posted on Twitter, Hrithik is seen shootinga selfie video while riding the bicycle, and said that he commutes to his office everyday like this to beat the Mumbai traffic.

“This initiative makes me so proud! Bravo. #HumFitTohIndiaFit #FitnessChallenge this is how I commute to my office every day. Sitting static in a car is such a waste. Walk, cycle, jog, feel the earth, feel India get FIT!” [sic] Hrithik wrote. He further nominated his parents Rakesh and Pinkie Roshan, actors Tiger Shroff and Kunal Kapoor to take up the challenge. Little did he know that he is only inviting a series of trolls by doing so. His followers rightly pointed out how this is an unsafe practice and he shouldn’t be the one encouraging such a practice. Watch the video that he posted, followed by the sharp reactions he received by followers. ALSO READ: Hrithik Roshan on the sets of Super 30 is barely recognisable – view pic

Moreover, even Mumbai Police took note of this and immediately responded with a reply to one of the followers…

Looks like our superstar did not see this side of his act. However, we cannot deny the fact that Hrithik is one of the fittest stars in Bollywood and his parents are also fitness enthusiasts. Several Bollywood actors are taking up this challenge and setting examples for their fans to incorporate fitness activities in their lives. However, we hope they take note of this and set the right example.

On the work front, Hrithik is currently shooting for Super 30, a biopic on mathematician Anand Kumar who founded Patna’s Super 30 programme. He also has a YRF film with Tiger Shroff and Yami Gautam lined up next.

Iulia Vantur to croon Salman Khan’s lyrics in Race 3 song Selfish

Salman Khan has turned lyricist for his upcoming film, Race 3. Yes, apart from acting in the film and distributing it, he has penned a song for the movie. The ditty is titled Selfish and it will be an out and out romantic track. During a creative brainstorming session, Salman penned the lyrics on a piece of paper. Music composer Vishal Mishra was impressed by Salman’s creation and added the tunes to the eloquent words. Announcing the new song on social media, actor Bobby Deol said, “Super excited for my first song in #Race3 with @BeingSalmanKhan and @Asli_Jacqueline! #Selfish releasing this Friday! @itsaadee @IuliaVantur @VishalMMishra @remodsouza @RameshTaurani @SKFilmsOfficial @tipsofficial #Race3ThisEid” [sic] Selfish comes next in line, after Heeriye, a dance number featuring Salman and Jacqueline Fernandez.

Selfish will feature all three of them. The story about Selfish doesn’t end here. If you have not noticed already, the song will be crooned by Salman’s rumoured girlfriend Iulia Vantur. We have heard Iulia’s voice when she joined Salman to sing a studio version of the song Jag Ghoomeya. Then she also collaborated with Himesh Reshammiya for a single. But this would be her first time, officially singing for a Salman Khan film.

While it is Salman’s first time penning down lyrics, he has written for movies before this. He has written stories for movies like Veer and Chandra Mukhi. We can’t wait to see what wonder Salman has pulled off this time.

Race 3 has been directed by Remo D’Souza and stars Anil Kapoor, Daisy Shah, Saqib Saleem alongside Salman, Jacqueline and Bobby. The movie is slated to release on June 15.

Talking about Salman’s decision to distribute the film, our source exclusively revealed to us, “The plan initially was to distribute Race 3 with the help of a third-party distributor. Co-producer Ramesh Taurani was trying to find a distributor for the film too, but because of the high cost that they were quoting, no one was willing to take it up. There were several companies pitching for the movie, but the price was not right. The makers had thought that if they did not find anyone, they would request Yash Raj Films to distribute the film on a profit-sharing basis. But during a discussion, Salman decided to step in and start his own distribution wing in Salman Khan Films with Race 3. Not only will it help him to have direct control and contact with the exhibitors, but he will also maximise his profits.”
