Akki out of Mogul
It looks like Akshay Kumar and T-Series head Bhushan Kumar have decided to burn the bridges behind them. The two reportedly had a major fall-out over their upcoming “Mogul” which was announced last year. The movie is based on the life of Bhushan Kumar’s late father Gulshan Kumar and Akshay Kumar was chosen to play the role of the music baron.
Bhushan Kumar has now openly announced that Akshay Kumar is not a part of Mogul anymore adding that they are looking for a bigger star than the Khiladi Kumar. Reportedly, Akshay Kumar has also returned the signing amount.
“My father’s biopic is very close to me. That is the biggest announcement we have made in our lives and we will confirm an actor soon. He will be bigger than Akshay Kumar,” Bhushan Kumar was quoted as saying by Deccan Chronicle.
Bhushan Kumar is now reportedly looking to get Salman Khan on board to play Gulshan Kumar’s role in the biopic.
“Bhushan has asked Aamir to produce the film along with him and possibly get Salman to play the lead. Bhushan has built a great rapport with Salman over the past many years and they are waiting for the formalities to be completed. The poster of Mogul still has Akshay Kumar’s shadowed face embalmed on it.

Family Time With Kapil Sharma Is A Flop ?
After all the hullabaloo, Twitter fights and teasers, Kapil Sharma’s new show Family Time With Kapil Sharma was aired on March 25 on Sony TV. And everyone was excited to see Kapil Sharma making his comeback on-screen after a break, not to forget many had great expectations from the comedian, owing to his previous performances.
While his last show ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ went off the air after his fight with Chandan Prabhakar and Sunil Grover, he promised to be back. And when Sharma’s new game show cum comedy show was announced, the curiosity around the show increased manifold. Many were waiting to see him perform his magic on the small screen.
The first episode aired on Sunday, March 25. The first guest on his show was Raid actor Ajay Devgn. However, the audience found Kapil Sharma’s jokes to be ‘stale’ and ‘pathetic’.
Kiku Sharda once again was playing a female character and Chandan did his act just okay. The jokes were as usual targeted at the teammates and audience. Neha Pendse was co-hosting the show. And no guesses there — Kapil Sharma was flirting with her and it added the glam quotient.
His fans are in no mood for the same old jokes and want something new. Did you guys watch the show yesterday? Comment below.
“Hichki” movie reviews
Here’s what the critics are saying about Hichki, starring Rani Mukerji, Supriya Pilgaonkar, Sachin Pilgaonkar, Harsh Mayar, Shivkumar Subramaniam, Neeraj Kabi
“Hichki is marred by more hiccups than its wafer-thin storyline can handle. The screenplay suffers from a syndrome that Bollywood fans are familiar with – it is a condition characterized by an obsession with amplified sentimentality and the tendency to offer superficial commentary. Read the complete movie review here.”
“Hichki is not a story that evokes sympathy, but aims to create acceptance of the condition. It is a speech defect, not an intellectual one, Rani tells one of the teachers who says that he has never met a teacher who has Tourette’s”
“Naina Mathur (Rani Mukerji) suffers from a neurological condition called the Tourette Syndrome since childhood. We are told that it’s a speech defect that aggravates whenever she gets nervous. She makes unique sounds, more like mildly suppressed screams. Despite such a disorder being a disadvantage in teaching, she wants to leave a mark over the impressionable minds in the field of education because years ago a teacher had stood up for her. “
