By Subhash K. Jha, February 13, 2015 - 09:48 hrs IST
Salman Khan has a found himself a new role as a script writer for the sequel to his 2013 blockbuster Kick.
Salman will be writing the story and screenplay of the Kick sequel.
Entitled Devil, the story idea for the sequel came from Salman.
Says a source close to producer-director Sajid Nadiadwala, "Sajid had no idea at all when he'd make Devil. He had decided he would not even think about the sequel until he found a kickass subject."
It was a casual conversation between Salman and Sajid when Salman got an idea which Sajid grabbed.
"It was just a one-liner that Salman threw at Sajid. That was it. Sajid not only grabbed the idea he also asked Salman to write the screenplay," says the source.
This is not the first time that Salman would be involved with the scripting of one of his starrers. He had written the story for Chandramukhi co-starring Sridevi in which Salman played the lead and also produced.
Devil is expected to go on the floors at the end of 2016. It won't star Randeep Hooda or Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
Kareena Kapoor Khan and Arjun Kapoor in R Balki’s next
R Balki has always been innovative, be it in his castings or his stories, be it in Cheeni Kum, Paa or in Shamitabh.
We have learnt that Balki is ready with his next film, a love story for which he has cast the gorgeous Kareena Kapoor Khan with the dark and handsome Arjun Kapoor. His love story is yet untitled but is set in North India and we hear that Balki will start shooting it in July this year for release in 2016. Balki, will await to know more about your unconventional love story.
Its amazing what an influential family can do for a person in the movie industry - If Arjun wasnt a Kapoor, he wouldnt even be cast as the sidekick of a sidekick in a big movie.
The guy regularly gets showed up by his co-actors performance wise - Parineeti and Gauhar owned him in Ishaqzaade. He got overshadowed by Alia, Amrita Singh and Ronit Roy in 2 States. Gunday was unbearable, but Ranveer atleast had some screen presence.

Oh No! Hrithik Roshan opts out of 'Aashiqui 3' Speculations were rifle in the tinsel town that Bollywood's heartthrob Hrithik Roshan is all set to tug your heartstrings with the musical 'Aashiqui 3' which is rumoured to be helmed by 'Tevar' director Amit Sharma.
Though Duggu never officially confirmed that he is doing the film, the latest scoop we hear that he has opted out of it. As per a Filmfare report, apparently, Hrithik was excited about the project and also interacted with the makers of the film for the same. However, after a few days, he changed his mind and informed the producers he wouldn't be able to do the film. Buzz is that he feared it wasn't the right choice at this stage of his career.
Meanwhile Hrithik will be next seen in Ashutosh Gowariker's 'Mohenjo Daro', Sanjay Gupta's 'Kaabil' and Kabir Khan's untitled film.
Script of Ranbir Kapoor- Alia Bhatt's superhero film locked! 25-Dec-2015 |
Script of Ranbir Kapoor- Alia Bhatt's superhero film locked! Ayan Mukherji and Ranbir Kapoor have given us memorable films like 'Wake Up Sid!' and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' in the past. And now the director-actor duo are all set to team up for a superhero flick.
Recently Ayan Mukherji revealed that he has finished penning the script for the film. He was quoted as saying to IANS, "People are talking about this film from very long time. I have completed the script of this film. Finally, Karan Johar (the film's producer) has approved the script. So, hopefully in early 2016, I'll be able to talk more about the movie."
Buzz is that the film which has been tentatively titled 'Dragon' has Ranbir playing a superhero with fire being his super power. Earlier a leading daily had quoted a source as saying, "The film is based on mythology but set in today’s times. It will be a three-part series (Hollywood style) and the story from the first part will be taken ahead to the next film. Now keeping Ranbir’s superpowers in mind, the makers have come up with a suitable title for the film.”
Aamir Khan to play Kishore Kumar in Anurag Basu’s Next?
There are no two opinions about the versatility of actor and superstar Aamir Khan. The star has done a variety of roles in his illustrious career and done them with utmost perfection.
But now, there is news that the actor will be playing the role of a person considered to be even more versatile than Aamir. Yes, we are talking about none other than the legendary singer and actor Kishore Kumar.
If reports are to be believed then Anurag Basu was set to direct the biopic since quite some time and wanted Ranbir Kapoor to be a part of it. Though Ranbir had initially agreed to do the film, he decided to part ways and concentrate only on one biopic that is in which he plays Sanjay Dutt.
So, Aamir had an informal chat with Ranbir to inquire if the project could be started again and if he could take up the mantle from him. Reports further say that Aamir is currently busy with Dangal and once it’s done the actor may take up the Kishore Kumar project.
Will Aamir play the role of Kishore Kumar? Let’s wait and watch.
Ranbir would be perfect for the role! The kind of physical flexibility and expression required by this role are extremely critical. I just feel Ranbir fits perfectly ( I prefer he plays this role than Sanjay Dutt). Aamir will make a big joke of himself if he does!
Sanjay Dutt biopic: Ranbir Kapoor to romance Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut in the film?
Ranbir Kapoor to romance Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut in Sanjay Dutt biopic?Varinder Chawla Rajkumar Hirani's biopic on Sanjay Dutt is gathering steam and the news of Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut being roped in has triggered some buzz.
According to a Spotboye report, the "Bajirao Mastani" actress liked the script but she will read it at length once she's back from her New Year's break.
Kangana was in news a few months ago after she was reportedly spotted visiting and leaving Hirani's house with a bound script. She will reportedly play Manyata in the film, added the web portal. Ranbir Kapoor has been confirmed to play Dutt and he is already thinking of physical transformations he'd have to make once he gets into the character.
"I still don't know how much I will have to pile on. When me and Raju sir sit down for discussion, maybe we will talk about it and I would know exactly how much weight I have to gain," DNA quoted him as saying.
What's interesting to note is Dutt's much-talked-about affair with Madhuri Dixit will not be the high point of the biopic. The makers are looking at focusing on the senior actor's other relationships -- one with his sister, wife Manyata and ex-wife Richa Sharma.
Talking at length about what one could expect from the biopic, Hirani said Dutt will not be glorified adding that it's a very emotional story. "I was skeptical initially as underworld part is not one of my favourite worlds. When Abhijat (Joshi) and I sat with Sanjay for 25 days and discovered that we want to say this story because it was a human story," he told The Indian Express.
In other news, Deepika's role in the film will reportedly be a mix of Sharma and Tina Ambani. Kareena Kapoor Khan will be seen in the shoes of the star's sister and Amitabh Bachchan may play the father, Sunil Dutt. As there has been no official announcement yet, this can, at best, be considered a speculation.
But, if there were any truth in what the industry insiders have been claiming, it will be fun to see ex-lovers Deepika and Ranbir light up the big screen once again.
^^ This will be the weirdest biopic - I dont understand why its being made
Totally agreed. It's not an uninteresting life, but is any of it really a story that the audience wants to see? I know I couldn't care less. Although, it could be very interesting to see how Hirani does when he moves away from familiar terrain.
This is to bad what's going wrong kaabil vs raees than krrish 4 vs ALR movie srk lose the clash between BM and Dilwale know Every one tak on him all his movies will face clash even imtiaz movie also look for clash let's see how srk face this.....

I think its stupid of both SRK and Hrithik to eat into each others business at a time when they are not doing great business to start with... Roshans have more to lose... Financially SRK is much stronger.
