Gulshan Devaiah – The surprise package in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram-leela”

All eyes are on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Goliyon Ki Raasleela: Ram-leela”, which hit the theatres today and as expected the movie has not disappointed both critics and the audience. The lead pair of Deepika-Ranveer is fabulous along with a great supporting cast but the surprise of the movie is the role by Gulshan Devaiah.

Gulshan, who essays the role of the antagonist Bhavani (Deepika’s cousin), has done a fantastic job in slowly unfolding his character from a young and angry saneda lieutenant who lurks in the background to a scheming, conniving villain who is in the thick of things.

The talented actor, who was earlier seen in ‘Shaitan’ and ‘Hate Story’ has grabbed this opportunity with both hands and poured himself into it and it seems like it’s paying off. The actor has a great year to look forward to, with Phantom Picture’s ‘Hunter’ and a two film deal with Pooja Bhatt.

======================================================================================

Deepika Padukone who has had an enormous success this year is all set for her forthcoming release Ram Leela.

The actress however made it a point to visit the temple Siddhivinayak before the release of her blockbuster films like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Chennai Express. Deepika as visits the temple for good luck and god’s blessing.

This time indeed for the release of Ram Leela, Deepika will follow the tradition again. Deepika has already started to win praises from her fans and the industry for her performance, her beauty and other elements that we caught on from the trailer.

With all the above positive responses that the actress is generating, Deepika will make a visit yet again this time.

YASH RAJ FILMS ONCE AGAIN TOTALLY VINDICATED

IN CASE FILED BY AJAY DEVGN FILMS

COMPETITION APPELLATE TRIBUNAL DISMISSES CASE

Friday, 15 November 2013: It is befitting that The Competition Tribunal dismissed the appeal filed by ADF against the order of the Competition Commission exactly a year since Jab Tak Hai Jaan released on 13th November 2012.

After the COMPETITION COMMISSION had dismissed the complaint filed by AJAY DEVGN FILMS (ADF) on the basis that they were of the opinion that there was no contravention of the Act in this case, the COMPETITION APPELLATE TRIBUNAL, in a order of 8th November 2012, also refused to pass any interim order against YASH RAJ FILMS (YRF) on the ground that the complainant had not put forward sufficient facts to establish that YRF had violated the Competition Act.

A completely misleading press release was put out by ADF alleging that an enquiry had been set up to look into ‘the anti-competitive activities of YRF’ since the Competition Appellate Tribunal had not found any merit in the contention of ADF because the Tribunal was of the view that ADF had totally failed to establish that the agreements entered into by YRF with the single screens cinemas would cause any appreciable adverse effect on competition. It was also noted by the Tribunal that YRF had announced the release of its film on 27th June 2011 with its announcement of the release of its film for Diwali 2012 and commenced booking of single screen theatres in June, July & Aug 2012. On the contra, ADF announced the release of its film only on 29th May 2012 and approached the single screen owners only in October 2012 by which time YRF had taken a lead. It was expressly noted that the number of screens contracted for JAB TAK HAI JAAN, being far less than that of EK THA TIGER, prima facie no case of adverse effect on competition, much less appreciable effect on competition, was made out.

Despite several media queries at that time, YRF had maintained a strict media silence while the matter was pending before the competent judicial authorities, deeming it inappropriate to comment on the matter while it was before the judicial authorities. YRF has never desired nor manipulated such unethical publicity as a film promotional device for itself.

It is unfortunate that our refusal to comment had led to aspersions being cast on YRF’s business practises, which have always been ethical and of the highest standards.

On 13th November 2013, after considering and dismissing individually all the points raised by the Appellant, AJAY DEVGN FILMS (ADF), the Honourable Chairman, Justice V. S. Sirpurkar and the other Honourable Members of the Coram, Shri Rahul Sarin & Mrs. Pravin Tripathi, concluded that “there is no merit in this appeal and this appeal must be dismissed”.

Let’s put to rest once and for all that YRF has, and will always, adopt the best business practices… and will continue to do so, jab tak hai jaan!

Regards,

yrf

Punit malhotra on his life

Punit who considers himself good- looking, silently dominating and hyper had started going to the gym to become an actor but today gym has become a part of his life. He would not refuse a role as an actor if a good one came his way in the future.
He comes from a filmi background considering Ram dayal sabarwal the producer who launched rekha is his nana, Suneel and Dharmesh darshan are his nana’s first cousins while Lali and David dhawan are his dads first cousins and his biggest influence has been his chachu Manish malhotra.
Manish asked him to assist Karan johar in kabhi kushi kabhi gham while he was 19 and had nothing to do after his college which continued as he also assisted on Kal ho na ho and Kabhi alvida na kehna. After his third film Karan who had already seen a director in him asked him if he wanted to direct. Karan agreed to invest his money if he had a good script and when punit approached him, he immediately agreed and I hate luv storys happened.
Talking about Manish malhotra, he is very protective about punit. He would want him to party and enjoy but not on the cost of his work suffering.
Punit finds himself very similar to Imran khan due to which they share a very good rapport. He finds Avantika to be a perfect match for Imran as what Imran lacks she makes up for him. He feels if he were a girl he would be safest with Imran.
Punit is very romantic at heart and is very attached to his mom. He hates god and hates the fact that people believe in god. He believes its better to help others rather than wasting time in praying.

Dhoom 3 created a huge buzz among the audiences post the launch of the trailer in the IMAX format, which is an added bonus.

The impact of the trailer has been so huge, that the news doing the rounds is that multiplexes have started pre booking tickets for the Aamir Khan starrer.

It is for the first time in the history of Indian cinema that multiplex chains started accepting pre bookings immediately after the launch of the trailer i.e. almost 2 months before the release of the film.

Usually, multiplexes start pre bookings one week prior to the release of the film.

The film is slated to release on December 20th and it is the most awaited film.

Another “first-time” news that was attached to Dhoom 3 before this, is that the film will be releasing in the IMAX format. Usually Hollywood films like Spiderman and Batman are released in this format.

What’s very interesting is that the multiplex was under pressure from the audiences. The demand was already so high that they had to start pre bookings.

When contacted the spokesperson of the film, they confirmed the news. “Yes, the impact of the trailer was big and there was a huge demand from the audiences, due to which pre-bookings began”.
