Sanjay Gupta to have a week-long Diwali celebration.

The SAW director is all set to celebrate the festivals of lights! Director Sanjay Gupta is gearing up for the week long Diwali celebrations. He will be taking off with his family and friends to his Khandala farm to celebrate the festival of lights.

Says Gupta “I always celebrate Diali at my Khandala farm house with my family and friends. Diwali to me is not about just the night, it’s all the days before and after. So its a week long celebration.”

The director’s next Mumbai Saga will be a trilogy of films dealing with major stories that shaped the future of Bombay and have remained unseen on screen. Extensive research is being done on each of them. These are also highly controversial and daring, maybe that’s why they were never attempted before.


Kautilya’s Lungi dance with Big B

It was dream come true for ‘Google boy’ Kautilya as he matched steps with Amitabh Bachchan and grooved to ‘Lungi dance’ on Sony Entertainment Television’s show Kaun Banega Crorepati.

Kautilya will be seen putting his vast knowledge to test in the upcoming Children’s day special episode of KBC. The five year old will put his grey cells to test as AB asks him questions related to various fields. Though he wasn’t playing for money, Kautilya left AB and the audience stunned with his remarkable intelligence. He later expressed his desire to dance with the legendary host. AB obliged and the duo moved to the beats of the popular song ‘Lungi dance’.

Now that’s a very multi-talented kid!

Groove to ‘Lungi dance’ with Kautilya and Amitabh Bachchan this Friday, November 8th, 8:30pm only on Sony Entertainment Television
