Madhur Bhandarkar is all set to perform ‘Operation Salvage’ on Shruti Haasan’s career. In what is quite clearly a manoeuvre to give the mighty Kamal Haasan’s daughter a commercial boost that Soham Shah’s Luck could not. Madhur Bhandarkar has signed her to play a key role in his first comedy Dil To Bachcha Hai Ji.
One of the most awaited films by the youth across the country today is Karan Johar’s, I Hate Luv Storys. The film is generating a big buzz not only amongst the generation X but also among the trade circles, thanks to its hit music and youthful charm. To top it all it is a Dharma Productions film too. Our trade sources inform us that UTV, which holds the film’s worldwide distribution rights and is the co-producer of the film, has an offer of Rs. 65 million for the distribution rights of Mumbai circuit alone!
Imran Khan is just three films old in Bollywood. Out of these three, only Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na was a box office hit while Kidnap and Luck failed to click at the box office. Even though both the movies got poor reviews from critics, Imran’s performance in Kidnap was appreciated and he also managed to bag the award for the Best Villain at IIFA last year.
Imran is currently awaiting the release of his latest film I Hate Love Story. The movie is scheduled for a release in early July this year. This film, which pairs Imran Khan and Sonam Kapoor, has been directed by debutant director Punit Malhotra.
Kamal Hassan’s daughter may not have made much of a mark in Bollywood with her debut in Luck, but she does not seem to have lost heart. This time, she is back in a new avatar– that of a music director. The perky Ms Hassan has rented an apartment in Mumbai, and has plans to form a new musical band here. In addition, she has been discussing prospective projects with leading music directors, sources say.
Shruti Haasan, who entered B-Town with the film ‘Luck’ where she starred opposite chocolate boy Imran Khan, is a musician first. Shruti Hassan as many people must know is the daughter of superstar Kamal Hassan and beautiful actress Sarika.
Action…Drama and loads of ‘rona dhona’ in bolly-flicks is something Indian cinema is renowned for. Touching the chords with right emotional components has been prevalent since a long time. Dreadful death of a positive character due to cancer and tuberculosis would give a filmmaker masala and make audience drown the theater with their woeful tears. Indian cinema has come a long way, and so has the trend of diseases.
Shruti Haasan, the daughter of actor Kamal Haasan who was last seen in the slick flick ‘Luck’ opposite Imran Khan, has shown off her multi-tasking skills time and again.
