Bombay Velvet to release on November 28

A thrilled cast and crew of Bombay Velvet celebrated the wrap up of their shoot after they completed it recently. Being the magnum opus of Anurag Kashyap, the cast was excited about the fact that they could finish the schedule on time as per Anurag's vision. Hence, the film which was to release during Christmas Week has now been preponed to November 28.


In the times, where movies are constantly getting postponed for various reasons, this film has been running completely on schedule. Vijay Singh, CEO of Fox Star Studios, stated that this special film required an equally special release and hence will be hitting the silver screens in the Thanksgiving weekend. Based on the backdrop of the 70s, Bombay's charm of that era was re-created in Sri Lanka where the crew was stationed for a long period of time.


Directed by Anurag Kashyap, Bombay Velvet stars Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Raveena Tandon, Karan Johar and Naseeruddin Shah among others.

IIFA gets sued for 7 million

IIFA 2014 seems to be caught in yet another controversy. The award ceremony to be held in the U.S. recently had to undergo a change in schedule since April 24 was declared as the voting day for citizens residing in Mumbai. However, now the organizers of IIFA, Wizcraft have been sued for $ 7 million by Florida based travel agent Akarsh Kolaprath. A lawsuit has been filed against them for breach of trust.


As per the deal, Kolaprath signed with Viraf Sarkari and Andre Timmins of Wizcraft three years ago, he was supposedly helping out the company in organizing the finances and making arrangements for the award ceremony to be held in U.S. which included accommodation for celebrities. However, amidst this time span, Kolaprath claims to have spent $ 2,65,000 on fulfilling travel requirements and consultation for the ceremony. However, leaving Kolaprath, Wizcraft has apparently now opted for making their own booking without giving a valid reason to Akarsh due to which his agency 7M tours has suffered heavy losses. Akarsh revealed that his company had reported a loss of more than $ 4 Million on hotel cancellation due to the change in dates that happened due to the ongoing elections. He has also demanded the 3 percent of the revenue that Wizcraft was to share when it earns $ 17.5 million through the function. Also, his yet another claim includes the revenues to be paid to him that were earned in excess of $ 17.5 million.


However, Sabas Joseph, director of Wizcraft maintained that the claims of Kolaprath are false and that they will respond to this matter appropriately before the court.

I was never offered Raees – Nawazuddin

The endless will-he-won't-he speculation on Nawazuddin Siddiqui's presence in Rahul Dholakia's Raees can finally be put to permanent rest with the harried actor rubbishing the reports.


Says the exasperated actor, "I am at a loss to understand where these reports came from! I was never offered Raees. So the question of accepting or not accepting the film doesn't arise. Someone in the media decided that I was part of the film. Then they decided I wasn't going to be part of it. All this drama is very distracting and embarrassing."


Nawaz says he shares a terrific rapport with the Raees producer Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani. "I did Talaash with them. And I was very happy with the outcome. I share a great relationship with them. I'd love to work with them again. In fact Excel (Farhan and Sidhwani's production company) did offer me another film which I couldn't do because of date problems. But Raees never came to me."


The role in Raees apparently requires the actor to put on 20 kilos. "Even if I ate chocolates, sweets and pizzas round-the-clock my metabolism won't allow me to put on that kind weight. So there is no question of doing the role."


Nawaz now gears up to plunge into Sajid Nadiadwala's Kick. "I've a fabulous role in the film. Plus, I've some really exciting scenes with Salman Khan. Kick is my most commercial project to date. It's the kind of action film I used to watch and enjoy as a child. I never knew I'd actually be a part of one of those."
