Nag, Trivikram's Helping Hand to Premam September 29, 2016 14:56

Apparently, Nagarjuna is willing his son Naga Chaitanya to score a commercial hit. Apart from lending voice over, Nagarjuna has also essayed a cameo in Premam directed by Chandoo Mondeti. As revealed by Nag, he will appear in climax episode of the film.Another interesting update about the film is star writer-cum-director Trivikram Srinivas has penned dialogues for Nagarjuna's voice over in Premam. Radha Krishna, one of the producers of the film is very close to Trivikram with whom he made three movies such as Julayi, S/O Satyamurthy and A Aa, might have convinced the director to lend his helping hand for the film.And Trivikram also shares good rapport with Nagarjuna, as the former penned dialogues for few of the latter's films including Manmadhudu, might be other reason for the director accepting to take part in the film. Surely, Trivikram's dialogues for Nag's portions will have great impact on Premam.Chaitu's uncle Venkatesh has also essayed a cameo and the role is said to be uproarious. Shruti Haasan, Anupama Parameswaran and Madonna Sebastian are female leads opposite Naga Chaitanya.Meanwhile, Premam is done with all formalities including censor and the movie is slated to grace theaters on October 7th.

Captured terrorists hailing from PoK or Pakistan have confessed to their training in Pakistan or in a Pakistan-controlled region,” Singh said.PM Modi  informed President Pranab Mukherjee, Vice President, and former Prime Minister Manhmohan Singh before conducting surgical strikes. Sources have told TIMES NOW that 8 surgical strikes were carried out by Indian Army, massive terrorist casualties reported.Pakistan, in a statement issued, has said: "At least two Army men were killed as Indian and Pakistani troops exchanged fire over the Line of Control in “Azad Jammu and Kashmir”.

PM Modi Hold Meeting with All Top Ministers September 29, 2016 12:31

Prime Minister Narendra Modi this morning called an urgent meeting of the country's top ministers. The meeting was held to review security after Pakistan violated the ceasefire along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir, days after an army camp in Uri was attacked, leaving 18 soldiers dead.The Cabinet Committee on Security which includes the Defence, Home and Foreign Ministers is to be followed by a briefing that includes representatives of the Defense Ministry.  Sources said "a significant announcement related to the Line of Control is likely, possibly explaining India's response to cross-border firing by Pakistani troops. PM Modi postponed another meeting to next week that was to look at possibly downgrading Pakistan's status as a trading partner."Today's security meeting was attended also by National Security Adviser Ajit Doval. The Defence Ministry's inclusion in the press briefing that is expected soon is both unusual and significant as so far, the government has indicated that its campaign against Pakistan will largely be centred around diplomatically isolating it.  In line with that strategy, the Prime Minister said he will not travel in November to Pakistan to attend the regional SAARC summit.  Three other countries of the 8-member SAARC have joined India's boycott.

Shraddha Kapoor & Arjun Kapoor Recreate 'DDLJ' Iconic Scene September 29, 2016 10:51

Everyone loves Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. The  movie was a blockbuster film starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol. It was released two decades ago and was also the directorial debut of YRF scion Aditya Chopra. Breaking all kinds of records when it was released, including being the longest running film ever, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge still holds a special place in everyone’s hearts. And when you ask people their fave scene from the film, many might say that last scene where Kajol runs to catch Shah Rukh Khan’s hand while he is on a moving train as their fave (never mind the theories that he should have pulled the chain and made the train stop). A few films that came later have tried to recreate that scene, including Shah Rukh Khan’s own Chennai Express. Now Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor will also recreate the same scene for their upcoming film 'Half Girlfriend', but with a twist. It will be the boy i.e. Arjun Kapoor who will be running with the train, while Shraddha Kapoor is on it. However, she is not extending her hand towards him.Arjun Kapoor had posted the still on his Twitter timeline with the caption, “Our very own DDLJ moment !!! @ShraddhaKapoor @mohit11481 @chetan_bhagat #halfgirlfriend #shootlife #mumbailocal”BY M.

Sonakshi Sinha will also be seen showcasing her new-found talent of kicking some butt in the film.This year has been quite ‘serious’ for John Abraham as the actor has done series of action-packed films where he portrayed characters who were always stern and never smiled. Whether it was the special appearance in Wazir or his recent release Dishoom, the actor has mostly shared the screen space with guns but not heroines. And now, the action hero is back again with the sequel of 2011 hit, Force. While the sequel retains John as the lead, this time it is Sonakshi Sinha who will be showcasing her new-found talent of kicking some butt in the film.John took to his official Instagram account to release the first look of his upcoming Force 2 and he promised that this time, his character of ACP Yashwardhan is even tougher and more intense. He shared the poster and wrote alongside, “He’s Tough. He’s Intense & he’s back in action with Twice the Force! Presenting ACP Yashwardhan for @Force2thefilm.”The poster shows the ‘Dishoom’ star in a very rugged look with infuriated eyes. Written on the poster are ‘The R.A.W Truth’ and ‘A dead soldier is a martyr…a dead spy is a traitor,’ which hints to something very exciting and electrifying coming up. Though the film is a sequel to the original version, starring Genelia Deshmukh, it has not been confirmed if the story will continue from where it left five years ago or if it will be a new beginning for John’s character named ACP Yashvardhan.
