-All eyes are set on ‘I Hate Luv Storys’ which sees Imran Khan returning to (a comfortable) romcom genre after ‘Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai’. The release holds a great significance for him since his contemporary Ranbir Kapoor has just delivered a blockbuster in the form of ‘Raajneeti’.
-Karan Johar has finalised the title of his Kajol, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal starrer remake of ‘Stepmom’. The film would be called ‘We Are Family’.
-Kangna is going the comic way. She has been signed by Indra Kumar for the sequel to ‘Dhamaal. In the film, she would be paired opposite Riteish Deshmukh.
-With the theatrical promo of ‘Aisha’ out and songs from ‘Kajraare’ blazing from all entertainment channels, it would be interesting to see the box office battle between Abhay/Sonam and Himesh Reshammiya on 6th August.
-Minissha Lamba has confirmed signing the sequel to ‘Bheja Fry’. This would make it two in a row for her with director Sagar Bellary since she is currently also shooting for another film of his – ‘Hum Tum Aur Shabana’ where she plays the central role of Shabana.
-While a serious (Lamhaa) film and a spoof (Tere Bin Laden) on terrorism are already planned for a 16th July release, another film on the issue of Naxalites (Red Alert – The War Within) has been finalised for release a week earlier (9th July). Too much terror to handle in a single month!
