It’s his home production and he’s going all out to start the promotions for Happy New Year. Shah Rukh Khan says this film is dedicated to losers. Before you get up in arms and wonder what he’s on about, this is what he had to say:
"The film is not about one actor, it is an ensemble film. It is about hope, belief and goodness. It is dedicated to losers. This film is about biggest heist. It's about six losers and one mission," SRK said.
It’s a three-minute trailer and gives a sneak peek into the forthcoming masala film, with a patriotic song, Indiawale, thrown in for good measure.
The ensemble cast that supports SRK in the film includes Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonu Sood, Boman Irani and Vivaan Shah, as well as Jackie Shroff, who plays the bad guy.
Touted as Bollywood's big Diwali release this year, the film promises to make the festive season 'happier' for fans of Hindi movies and Shah Rukh Khan, who will be seen on the big screen after a gap of more than a year.
SO WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS OUTFIT?
Paparazzi and media have decided they find this particular dress of Bipasha Basu’s very tacky and were insisting she fire her stylist and get another one. The rant went on and on saying that Bips just seems to be seen wearing short and tight dresses these days and all she’s interested in doing is showing off her fabulous body.
Yes, please. Roll your eyes. She’s a woman with a great body and she knows it. Pray, tell why shouldn’t she wear what she wants to? This particular number was designed by Kushali Kumar. What do you say? Aye or Nay?
BOLLYWOOD GETS PATRIOTIC
Last week, India celebrated its 68th Independence Day and Bollywood got all patriotic as they shared their favourite patriotic songs.
Sushant Singh Rajput: "I love what A R Rahman Saab's 'Ma Tujhe Salaam' and 'Lukka Chuppi' does to my soul. Every time I hear these numbers I am reminded of how Indian I am. While watching Rakeysh Mehra'sRang De Basanti and Ashutosh Gowariker's Lagaan, I feel the same surge of patriotism. I also feel very inspired by Tom Cruise in Top Gun."
Ayushmann Khurrana: "'Vande Mataram' by A R Rahman and Lataji is my favourite, followed by 'Mera Rang De Basanti Chola' which inspires me no matter who sings it. The most inspiring movie I've seen is Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Rang De Basanti. It's contemporary relevant and non-jingoistic."
Mohit Chauhan: "When it comes to patriotic songs nothing inspires me more than the national anthem 'Jana Gana Mana'. It never fails to stir something urgently nationalistic within me...And the most inspiring film I've seen would have to be Chetan Anand's Haqeeqat."
Tapsee Pannu: "The title track from Shimit Amin's Chak De always inspired me. The film too does more of the same to me."
Armaan Jain: "There's nothing more inspiring than our national anthem. No matter when or where it plays it brings tears to my eyes. I love A R Rahman's 'Maa Tujhe Salaam'. I love Faiz Ahmed Faiz' sher on nationalism 'Pehli Si Mohabbat' and Rabindranath Tagore's 'Where the mind is without fear'.
Mohit Marwah: "My favourite patriotic song is 'Vande Mataram' by A R Rahman. The most inspiring week for me at the movies was during the year 2001 when I saw Lagaan and Gadar back-to-back on the same Friday in Delhi. The two films made me proud to be an Indian. I drove straight to India Gate with my friends after the movies."
Ali Fazal: "A.R. Rahman's version of 'Saare Jahan Se Achcha' never fails to move me. And Lagaan is a film that inspired me immensely. It's about the victory of the underdog. A truly Indian saga."
Sunidhi Chauhan: "'Ae Mere Pyare Watan' is my favourite patriotic song."
Mohit Raina: "'Mere Desh Ki Dhari Sona Oogle' from Manoj Kumar's Upkar is one song that fills my heart with the pride of patriotism. And the film that has inspired me the most is Richard Attenborough's Gandhi."
