T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar recently announced the title of his next venture with director Umesh Shukla as All is Well.
The slice-of-life film that went on floor earlier this year, initially had the title registered with Vidhu Vinod Chopra who was gracious enough to let go of the title because of the good rapport he shares with producer Bhushan Kumar. Talking about his equation with Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Bhushan Kumar said, " I told Vidhu ji that everyone says it would be impossible to get the title from you .But he was large-hearted enough to give me the title on the condition that I get him his favorite Delhi mitthai. The film is now officially titled All is Well".
All is Well stars Abhishek Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor and Asin in prominent roles.
After the success of Shuddh Desi Romance, Yash Raj Films will keep the trend of romance going in 2014 too with Kill Dill, Gunday and others. The film starring Ayushmann, Sonam, Rishi Kapoor has been titled Bewakoofian. It is based on a slice-of-life Delhi comedy where a strong and passionate love of two youngsters is opposed by a bureaucrat father.
YRF's yet another romantic film will see a fresh pair of Aditya Roy Kapur and Parineeti Chopra romancing on screen. This film has been titled Daawat - E - Ishq.
While both the films have been written by Habib Faisal, Bewakoofian is directed by Nupur Asthana and is set to release on March 14, 2014. The latter Daawat-E-Ishq will be directed by Habib and is set to release on May 9, 2014.
Sajid Nadiadwala's directorial debut Kick has recently doing rounds in the news circuit after Salman Khan was unable to complete the shoot in UK. Hence the schedule of shooting was shifted to India which will commence soon. Despite the fact that the action scenes are required to be shot at Connaught Place, Paharganj and Karol Bagh areas and other popular areas of Delhi, the actor will not visit the city.
An expensive set of a whopping Rs. 15 crores is supposed to be created in Karjat, near Mumbai, which will resemble these popular locations. Also, according to Sajid's statements, the autos, the buses and other local elements will be brought to the set to create an authentic ambience. After this, Salman will fly to London to shoot a major chunk which still remains unfinished because of the visa controversy.
Besides Salman, Kick stars Jacqueline and Randeep Hooda and is scheduled to release in Eid next year.
Arjun Kapoor who is currently gearing up for his soon to be released Aurangzeb will be shifting base to Gurgaon, Delhi. The reason behind this is that the makers of Arjun's film Aurangzeb that deals with the real estate business in Gurgaon, felt that this move would help emphasize and underline the setting of the film.
Following this, Arjun will live the life of a local from Gurgaon, with the usual watching films and clubbing while also engaging and interacting with local people. According to the producers, this is a unique way to promote upcoming film as it is based in Gurgaon. Usually films are set in cities and for first time this belongs to a suburban town.
In the past, we have seen Imran Khan shift to Delhi for a month to promote Delhi Belly, while Sonam Kapoor had shifted to Delhi for 4 months as she was shooting all her films back to back in Delhi.

Raj Kumar Hirani is taken aback with number of rumours floating about the film being delayed or him not working on PK anymore. And what's interesting is that, while all this are being spoken and written about, he is busy with the recce of locations in Delhi. Raj Kumar Hirani's second unit has already started shooting on schedule almost 15 days back.
The whole schedule was that second unit would shoot in October and November. And the actual principal shooting or photography with talent would start in mid January, as Raju wanted to capture the early winter of Delhi.
Says Raj Kumar Hirani, "I have been on location hunt in interiors of Rajasthan and Delhi. Songs are being recorded for PK. All my energies are focused on the film. Nothing has changed. I wanted to capture the winter of Delhi and that's when we start shooting. We are on schedule." He also added that "Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma join the shooting in mid January. We would be announcing a young dynamic actor in the second lead in a week's time."
In the last few months, there has been a lot of furore caused over depiction of smoking scenes in films. Now students from various schools of Delhi have written postcards / letters to Kareena Kapoor asking her to refrain from smoking on-screen. It's common knowledge that Kareena's latest release Heroine has the actress puffing away to glory in quite a few scenes.
The school students wrote to the actress as a part of HRIDAY's (Health Related Information Dissemination Amongst Youth) ongoing campaign against depiction of tobacco use in films. Actors are a role-model for young school and college going kids and hence showing actors light up a cigarette on screen doesn't set a good example.
HRIDAY had also written to Heroine director Madhur Bhandarkar urging him to abide by the notification and gave reference of movies who have already complied with it. While precious little can be done now considering Heroine has already released, it remains to be seen if Kareena takes this request of her young fans seriously and refrains from smoking on-screen in her forthcoming films.
