Bollywood’s leading man Ajay Devgn is set to reprise his iconic role as the charismatic and fearless Inspector Bajirao Singham in this Summer’s big-screen action offering Singham Returns, which releases worldwide on Indian Independence Day, 15th August 2014 through Reliance Entertainment.

Audiences will be treated to a feast of fist-fights, fanciful footwork and fantastic stunts, as Ajay resumes the role he first made world-famous in 2011, this time also adding a producer credit to his impressive cache of career highs together with Reliance Entertainment.

Singham Returns pays homage to the original blockbuster film Singham, which redefined the action genre in Indian cinema with its stellar narrative of good versus evil, sensational stunt sequences and perfectly choreographed action. Singham Returns imbibes the core themes of India’s freedom, encapsulating such values as heroism, daring feats, determination and perseverance, as the ever-brave Inspector Bajirao Singham takes on the establishment to rid his city of corruption and deceit in the upper echelons of society.

The second instalment of the Singham brand once again reunites action film supremo Rohit Shetty (Golmaal series, Chennai Express) with award-winning actor and producer Ajay Devgn (Golmaal, Singham, Omkara) in what promises to be the must-see family ‘masala entertainer’ of the summer. Joining the successful pairing of Ajay Devgn and director Rohit Shetty is leading lady and fellow Golmaal 2 and Golmaal 3 co-star Kareena Kapoor Khan (3 Idiots). Other notable performances come from internationally-renowned actor Anupam Kher (Bend It Like Beckham, Silver Linings Playbook) and Amol Gupte (Taare Zameen Par).

Complementing the all-star line-up is a well-written script by acclaimed writing duo Sajid-Farhad, who penned the original script for Singham as well as writing other hit films, such as Housefull 2 and Bol Bachchan. The rousing musical score is expertly put together by Ankit Tiwari, perfectly nuancing every finite detail of this gripping and intense film.

Sonam Kapoor to show Rekha the new trailer of ‘Khoobsurat’

Actress Sonam Kapoor, who has stepped into Rekha’s shoes for the ‘Khubsoorat’ remake, says she is not even a patch on the senior actress who is still remembered for effortlessly playing the chirpy and carefree girl in the original.

In the remake, Sonam will be seen romancing Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Afzal Khan when it releases on September 19.

“I don’t think I can do justice to anything Rekha has done,” said Sonam and added that for her it was more important to be part of a film that has some meaning and message.

Directed by Shashanka Ghosh, the new ‘Khoobsurat’ has been produced by Sonam’s dad Anil Kapoor and sister Rhea under their banner Anil Kapoor’s Film Company Pvt. Ltd.

“These days very few films means something, have great values and at the same time they are lots of fun. Hrishikesh Mukherjee was one of the last few directors who made films like ‘Guddi’, ‘Mili’ and ‘Khubsoorat’ that actually had the vibes which appealed to everybody, had a message and was happy and fun film.”

“Those kind of films Rajkumar Hirani is making these days and ‘Khoobsurat’ is one of the other one, which I am part of,” said the 29-year-old.

Good cinema doesn’t have to be dark or depressing.

“I don’t think good film is something that is dark or dying one, I think it can be light also. We are going through too much in India and cinema has always been my happy space and this is my ode to Hrishikesh Mukherjee,” said the actress.

Have you shown the trailer to Rekha?

“Rekha is very close to my family. She had even seen ‘Aisha’ and we had kept a separate trailer launch for her. For this film too, we are going to show her the trailer.”

‘Kick’ Postponed? Salman starrer loses screens to Riteish Deshmukh’s ‘Lai Bhaari’?

If sources are to be believed than the makers of Salman Khan starrer ‘Kick’ are considering to postponed the movie. Reason being that most of the cinema halls in Mumbai are running houseful owing to Riteish Deshmukh’s recent release ‘Lai Bhaari’ – which has been garnering rave reviews. Following which talks are that ‘Kick’ might not release on Eid and apparently will push its releasing date.

As per media sources, when Kick’s filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala met with Ameya Khopkar, co-producer of ‘Lai Bhaari’ and chief of MNS Film Wing to discuss the matter, the latter alleged to have refused to make space for ‘Kick’. Instead Khopkar is keen to run the Marathi film for few more days since its making good business; however they will make an exception by giving a show or two at the theatres where the film is doing okay.

Now Sajid is in fix – given the fact, he has penned the story for ‘Lai Bhaari’ and also Salman features in the movie in a cameo. But ‘Kick’ being Sajid’s directorial debut, the filmmaker finds himself in a tricky situation when he faces such a stiff competition from the Riteish starrer. While grapevines have it that the release of ‘Kick’ might get postponed, Sajid is yet to make a finalise decision. On the other hand, some cinema hall sources claim that there is no such change of plans and they will be running ‘Kick’ side by side with ‘Lai Bhaari’.
