Since the film is based on hockey game, it has been shot across different places. The final climax portions were alone shot for 20 days.

Five best characters of Pankaj Tripathi that will surely leave you anticipating

Five best characters of Pankaj Tripathi that will surely leave you anticipating for his character, 'Kaleen Bhaiya' in Mirzapur
Pankaj Tripathi has been on a swing of appreciation with an array of blockbusters that he’s been delivering in quite a while now. The actor was last seen in the Hindi comedy-drama Stree creating marvels with his on-point comic timing. With the year-end approaching, Amazon Prime Video is all set to unleash its Prime Original Series, Mirzapur this year and we can’t wait to watch the actor re-arriving with yet another master-work as ‘Kaleen Bhaiya’.
We have hand-picked top 5 characters of the actor which will truly convince you to watch the show this November-
1.      Remember Sultan Qureshi- the faceless and fierce dacoit from the Gangs of Wasseypur? With his breakthrough in 2012, Pankaj Tripathi strikingly enacted his on-screen avatar in the much-appreciated Hindi crime-drama. He was both, shrewd and evil and manipulative enough to join hands with his competitors to ally against their common enemy. 

2.      Next on our list is the Sadhya Ji from Neeraj Gheywan’s Masaan. Pankaj Tripathi impresses the audience with his subtle presence in the film which surely couldn’t be overlooked. He epitomizes his on-screen avatar beautifully with his dialogues- full of humor and wit you would ever want to miss.
3.      Adding another Golden feather to his cap, Pankaj Tripathi won a Special Mention for his character Aatma Singh in the much-acclaimed film, Newton. He is known for being simple yet marking his presence every time he arrives on the screen. Aatma Singh’s character in the film is of a leader/support system who backs Rajkumar Rao in his times most vulnerable.
4.      Narottam Mishra aka ‘Bitty’s father’ aka Pankaj Tripathi is more noteworthy a reason to watch ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ all over again. The actor’s portrayal in the film looks promising and will leave you in his awe everytime you watch it.
5.      Rudra Bhaiya from his latest addition ‘Stree’ has certainly benchmarked his performance yet again. Pankaj Tripathi never fails to make us burst in laughter the murky, witty and weird ‘Rudra Bhaiya’ is a proof of it.
We’re sure that Pankaj Tripathi as Kaleen Bhaiya in Mirzapur will sway us with his on-screen magic yet again in a completely different and menacing avatar, and we can’t wait to watch the Prime Original Series this November.

Marjaavaan is announced

Marjaavaan is announced

After the convincing success of the mass-entertainer Satyameva Jayate, Bhushan Kumar, Nikkhil Advani and Milap Milan Zaveri are back with their next film titled Marjaavaan. Helming this action-packed, high on drama, emotional love story, set against the backdrop of Mumbai city, are Riteish Deshmukh, Sidharth Malhotra and Tara Sutaria. 

A lot of excitement around this unique casting is because Riteish and Sidharth were last seen together in the blockbuster film Ek Villain (2013), which was co-written by Milap as well. Tara Sutaria, who will debut in SOTY 2, is the fresh new face and will play Sidharth’s love interest in this film.

T-Series CMD Bhushan Kumar had this to say “Extremely excited and proud to once again partner with Nikkhil and his team. We have together backed Milap’s earlier film and are confident of bringing this family entertainer for our audiences. Apart from an engaging story, the film will have wonderfully curated music to highlight the love story.”

Nikkhil Advani added “My company Emmay Entertainment has been developing this film with Milap since two years and we hope to exceed expectations with Marjaavaan. Be prepared for action, dialogue-baazi Milap style, with a moving tale of love and longing.”

Milap concluded “I am continuously grateful for all the support my film Satyameva Jayate received. So excited and grateful to team up again with T-Series and Emmay. This is a family production for me to have all  those associated with it, as part of it.”

The film goes on floors December 2018 and is slated for release on October 2nd, 2019.

R Madhavan, Ananth Mahadevan & Nambi Narayanan launch the teaser of 'Rocketry - The Nambi Effect'!

ROCKETRY – The Nambi Effect is scheduled to have a 
worldwide release in summer 2019.

Teaser of  "Rocketry"

31st October, 2018: For the first time in the history of Indian cinema, the audience is set to witness a story, as spectacular and spellbinding as it could be.

Tricolour Films in association with Varghese Moolan Pictures & Saffron Ganesha Entertainment presents ROCKETRY - The Nambi Effect, a movie based on the incredible story of Nambi Narayanan, the brilliant mind behind ISRO’s ambitious project of making India numero uno in the space satellite market.

R Madhavan – the charismatic Indian actor essays the part of Nambi Narayanan with a host of celebrated names in pivotal roles. The film is being directed by the Indian National Film Award winning director Ananth Narayan Mahadevan and R Madhavan himself.

The teaser of the movie was launched in four languages – Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and English recently in the presence of R Madhavan, Ananth Narayan Mahadevan and the man himself, Nambi Narayanan. 

To be shot over the next six months in India, Princeton, Scotland, France and Russia, ROCKETRY: The Nambi Effect will be a trilingual in English, Hindi and Tamil. The film is slated for a summer 2019 worldwide release.

R Madhavan says, “It’s a matter of such great excitement and honour for us to be able to tell Mr. Nambi Narayanan’s story to the world. We can’t wait to tell it and we can’t wait for you all to hear it.”

Adds Mr Nambi Narayanan, “It's one of the most memorable occasions of my life. I had spent 35 years in rocketry right from making a small rocket with the respected Abdul Kalam to the monstrous mangalyaans and chandrayaans. It took me a long time and several meetings to narrate my story to them, but I was impressed with their vision, conviction and enthusiasm with which they want to create the movie and as we kept talking tears started rolling through their eyes."

Says Ananth, “When we met the phenomena - Mr Nambi Narayanan, we realized the fact that why we fail to recognize brilliant minds like him who made their country proud through their work. It was an enlightening and educating experience for all of us to hear his incredible story. We almost ended up becoming half scientist. I hope that not just India but the International market should take a look at our film and admire it."

Tricolour Films in association with Varghese Moolan Pictures, Saffron Ganesha Entertainment are the joint producers.

ROCKETRY – The Nambi Effect is scheduled to have a worldwide release in summer 2019.

Kareena tells not to be cheap

Kareena tells not to be cheap & Sell Taimur!

Saif to Sid K : Kareena tells not to be cheap & Sell Taimur!

Taimur Ali Khan is our national obsession and his parents are quite aware of the same. With so many fan clubs in his name on social media, the little fellow is quite the craze. His parents are quite aware of the same. 

Recently, Ace TV / Radio Host and Youtube Sensation Siddharth Kannan did an interview with the team of Bazaar and requested Saif for a single picture with Taimur so that he could get a million followers on Instagram. The chote nawab said that every producer has half-jokingly asked him if they could use Taimur for promotions. He said, "Every producer I am working with has half-jokingly said, ‘Haha can we put him?’ With white in his hair (he sports salt and pepper hair in Baazaar). With Kaalakaandi, they wanted to put rubber bands. In Hunter, they want to put that Naga Sadhu wig on this poor guy." 

Check out the full interview below: 

The actor said that Kareena Kapoor is strictly against such notions and tells her husband not to be cheap. The actor said, “My wife says, ‘Don’t be so cheap. You can’t sell your son (Taimur)’. I am like, ‘Why not? Let’s sell him’. Seriously yaar, he is anyway there on the internet. I am just using this platform to say if anybody has any good nappy ads or anything... at a very reasonable price...it’s not reasonable, it’s quite expensive actually. And, I won’t give him the money also. I’ll give him some cash for his education, I am already giving it to him. And I’ll spend the rest..maybe even use the money for a holiday in Switzerland!”
