Entertainment: Salman, Aishwarya’s films to clash on Eid 2018
Presented by Tips Industries Ltd, Race 3 is produced by Ramesh S. Taurani. It also features Saqib Saleem, Bobby Deol and Daisy Shah
Superstar Salman Khan’s Race 3 and actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s upcoming film Fanney Khan will clash at the box office on Eid-ul-Fitr.
Race 3 director Remo D'Souza shared the film’s clapboard on Thursday night and captioned it: The biggest race of my life begins. Race 3 begins.
Given that both films are much talked about, it is likely to be quite a clash.
Salman on Friday shared a photograph of the entire Race 3 team on the micro-blogging website, and drew attention towards “how hot, cool, sweet, charming and sexy” Ramesh Taurani looks.
Presented by Tips Industries Ltd, Race 3 is produced by Ramesh S. Taurani. It also features Saqib Saleem, Bobby Deol and Daisy Shah.
On the other hand, Fanney Khan, a musical comedy film, is being directed by Atul Manjrekar. The film is being jointly produced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, KriArj Entertainment and T-Series.
It is the official remake of the Oscar-nominated 2000 Dutch film Everybody's Famous!.
Super 30 to go into production from December
Super 30, a film on Anand Kumar -- a mathematics genius from a modest family in Bihar -- will go into production from December, to release in time on November 23 next year.
Backed by Reliance Entertainment and Phantom Films and directed by Vikas Bahl, Super 30 will star Hrithik Roshan in the lead role.
Shibasish Sarkar, Chief Operation Officer, Reliance Entertainment, said in a statement: “Super 30 is a great human story about struggle and inspiration that we want to portray on the big screen. The film will go in production from December and we are sure the audience will appreciate this incredible film when it releases next year.”
Kumar is known for his Super 30 programme to help students crack IIT entrance tests.
Kumar is confident it will be a “heartfelt film” and that he has “full faith” in Hrithik's capabilities.
SC refuses plea to ban release of Padmavati
The Supreme Court on Friday refused a plea seeking to ban the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's controversial Padmavati epic drama featuring Deepika Padukone as a Rajput queen.
The court said it could not intervene since the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) was yet to decide about its certification.
The film, which also stars Shahid Kapoor as Rawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as invader Alauddin Khilji, is set for release on December 1.
The movie has been a subject of many controversies. Some Hindu groups and political parties, including the Congress and the BJP, claim that the film distorts history and wrongly portrays Padmavati, a contention Bhansali has rebuffed.
