Ali Fazal's unforgettable memory with Aamir Khan
Perfectionist Aamir Khan can indeed inspire anyone! So how can newbie Ali Fazal be not influenced by him?
When asked about his unforgettable memory of life, actor Ali Fazal, who recently visited glamsham's office, candidly shared, "I always remember solving rubik's cube with Aamir Khan on the sets of 3 IDIOTS, that's my unforgettable memory. We were both timing each other (smiles)."Ali added further, "He is bloody genius. Aamir is my inspiration for this hunger of knowledge and this is from that time onwards I changed completely. I never used to read books. In fact, I used to do nothing. I was not a reader. But thanks to him I picked up from there. He is always doing something in between the shots. He used to either play rubik's cube or read anything but stay engaged anyhow. In fact, he was so fast in solving it, where I took 2 and a half minutes, he just did it in 55 seconds. He is mad completely!"
So, ask Ali if acting became his passion after meeting Aamir and he says, "As actors we love to learn and that's our job."
Meanwhile, Ali is looking forward to his film FAST AND FURIOUS 7, which is set to hit the screens in April worldwide.
Jay Bhanushali: I am the 'Paheli' Sunny Leone is 'Leela'
Jay Bhanushali, who is currently gearing up for his upcoming Bollywood film EK PAHELI LEELA, at an interview spoke about the film, his character and on working with his co-star Sunny Leone.
When asked Jay to throw some light on his character from the film he said, "If I put in in simple words, going by the title, it says EK PAHELI LEELA, so 'EK PAHELI' is me and 'LEELA' is Sunny. I am playing a very naughty and fun-loving character in the film. How a person who is always happy in his life falls in some problem because of his past life and how he comes out of it is the whole story about."
He further elaborated, "I play a musician cum singer in the film, so luckily I have got the best songs in the film also. 'Tere Bin' is rocking right now and people are loving that song, I am really happy with that. We got a great response from the promo also. So overall, it's a very happy happy thing."
When ask him what made him sign this film he said, "I can't tell you what it was as this film is like a question. You need to watch the film to solve the mystery, but this role is something which I haven't done in my life whether its television or films, so that is the biggest thing. I think, the script is the biggest hero in this film. It is very well written."
Ask him about his experience on working with Sunny and he says, "It was great working with her. She is a very hardworking plus very dedicated towards her work. Even though her Hindi is not good, she use to always be prepared with her lines when she came on the sets. It wasn't like she took too many takes, so that is one good quality of her, she is always ready to learn."
EK PAHELI LEELA also stars Rajniesh Duggal, Mohit Ahlawat, Jas Arora, Rahul Dev and others. Directed by Bobby Khan, produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Ahmed Khan and Shaira Khan, the film is set to release on 10th April, 2015.

Bollywood Box-Office Report Of The Week
This week will see the release of the Shadab Mirza directed BARKHAA and Karan Raj Kanwar's YAHAAN SABKI LAGI HAI. Both the mentioned films don't carry much hype and trade predicts that the audience will prefer to watch the older releases.
Last week saw a three cornered box-office battle between Shemaroo Entertainment's HUNTERRR, Ab Infosoft Creation DOZAKH-IN SEARCH OF HEAVEN and Jap Films' DILLIWAALI ZAALIM GIRLFRIEND. The opening round was comprehensively won by HUNTERRR which netted around 5.50 crore while DILLIWAALI ZALIM GIRLFRIEND lagged far behind with around 2 crore, both during the opening weekend. The third release DOZAKH-IN SEARCH OF HEAVEN was out rightly rejected. From the three releases, it is just HUNTERRR that has some chances of breaking even, but for that a half decent second week is a must.
Moving on, after a creditable opening weekend (13.50 crore), Anushka Sharma's debut production venture, NH10, maintained very well during the weekdays as well, and has done quite well in the first week collecting 2.75 crore from Bombay (collections from other cinemas unreceived), 50.55 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 15.25 lakhs from Surat, 15 lakhs from Baroda (collections from 3 cinemas unreceived), 9.15 lakhs from Rajkot, 85 lakhs from Pune, 9.15 lakhs from Nasik, 6.50 lakhs from Goa, 3 lakhs from Belgaum, 2.75 crore from Delhi city, 40 lakhs from Noida, 27.75 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 13 lakhs from Kanpur, 25.20 lakhs from Lucknow, 6 lakhs from Allahabad, 60 lakhs from Gurgaon, 10.50 lakhs from Faridabad, 4.55 lakhs from Panipat, 20 lakhs from Chandigarh, 7.65 lakhs from Jalandhar, 6.50 lakhs from Amritsar, 10 lakhs from Ludhiana, 2 lakhs from Bhatinda, 65 lakhs from Calcutta, 5.55 lakhs from Siliguri, 2.15 lakhs from Patna, 3.50 lakhs from Dhanbad, 3 lakhs from Ranchi, 6.50 lakhs from Bhubaneshwar, 2.55 lakhs from Guwahati, 20 lakhs from Nagpur, 9.50 lakhs from Jabalpur, 15 lakhs from Raipur, 35 lakhs from Indore, 6 lakhs from Gwalior (collections from 4 cinemas unreceived), 15 lakhs from Bhopal (collections from 4 cinemas unreceived), 50 lakhs from Jaipur (collections from 3 cinemas unreceived), 2 lakhs from Jodhpur (collections from 3 cinemas unreceived), 4 lakhs from Ajmer, 4 lakhs from Kota, 7 lakhs from Udaipur, 75 lakhs from Hyderabad, 7 lakhs from Aurangabad, 90 lakhs from Bangalore, 4.50 lakhs from Mangalore, 2.25 lakhs from Mysore, 2.50 lakhs from Vijayawada, 6.15 lakhs from Visakhapatnam, 2.50 lakhs from Madras and 5 lakhs from Kochi. Netting nearly 21 crore during the opening week, and seeing a very steady second weekend, the moderately budgeted NH10 is already an above average fare. The film has also grossed around $1m from the overseas.
Meanwhile Yash Raj Films' very reasonably costing (15 crore all inclusive) venture, DUM LAGA KE HAISHA, saw another very steady week as it collected 1 crore from Bombay (collections from other cinemas unreceived), 20 lakhs from Ahmedabad, 3.55 lakhs from Surat, 2.55 lakhs from Baroda (collections from 4 cinemas unreceived), 1.75 lakhs from Rajkot, 20 lakhs from Pune, 1.55 lakhs from Nasik, 2 lakhs from Goa, 85 lakhs from Delhi city, 15lakhs from Noida, 10 lakhs from Ghaziabad, 4.50 lakhs from Kanpur, 10 lakhs from Lucknow, 2.50 lakhs from Allahabad, 20 lakhs from Gurgaon, 3 lakhs from Faridabad, 10 lakhs from Chandigarh, 1.50 lakhs from Jalandhar, 1.50 lakhs from Amritsar, 2.50 lakhs from Ludhiana, 25 lakhs from Calcutta, 1.75 lakhs from Siliguri, 1.55 lakhs from Dhanbad, 1.50 lakhs from Ranchi, 2.50 lakhs from Bhubaneshwar, 5 lakhs from Nagpur, 2.50 lakhs from Jabalpur, 5 lakhs from Raipur, 10 lakhs from Indore, 3 lakhs from Gwalior, 5 lakhs from Bhopal, 15 lakhs from Jaipur (collections from 3 cinemas unreceived), 1.50 lakhs from Kota, 2.50 lakhs from Udaipur, 15 lakhs from Hyderabad, 1.50 lakhs from Aurangabad and 20 lakhs from Bangalore. Adding another 5.50 crore DUM LAGA KE HAISHA has netted 26 crore in three weeks from India and is a clean hit. DLKH already has a good satellite price (8 crore) in its kitty and is still to release in the overseas.
Concluding with the Sriram Raghavan directed Nawazuddin, Varun, Huma and Yami starrer, BADLAPUR, the film added another 1.25 crore and has thus netted 52 crore in four weeks from India and is a semi-hit. BADLAPUR has also done well in the overseas grossing nearly $2.1m.
Shahid Kapoor: I'm not engaged yet, but what you have been reading is kind of true
For all the girls who might be hoping for Shahid Kapoor's marriage rumours to be untrue, there is disappointing news for you all. The heartthrob has confirmed that the news about his marriage which has been doing the rounds is kind of true and marriage is on cards sometimes towards the end of the year.
At an award show Shahid said, "I'm not engaged yet but what you have been reading is kind of true. Marriage in on the cards sometimes towards the end of the year. I thought it was important for me to acknowledge it in front of the media, so I am doing that. Other than that, I am just a normal guy and she is a normal girl and we should treat it like something normal and regular. That's how I look at it. It's my personal space, so I won't get into the details of that, but I am very happy and I am happy to announce it right now."
His marriage rumours were doing the rounds for almost a week and according to reports, the Delhi girl Mira Rajput is a third-year English (Hons) student at LSR and did her schooling from Vasant Valley School. Apparently, Shahid met Mira through the religious group, Radha Soami Satsang Beas.
Now that Shahid has himself confirmed this news, there is going to be no more speculation about his marriage. We here congratulate the couple and wish them all the happiness!
