‘Bharat’ emerges Salman’s biggest opener

Superstar Salman Khan’s latest film “Bharat” minted over Rs 42 crore on the first day of its release on Eid. The actor on Thursday took to social media to thank his fans for giving “me my career’s biggest opening ever”.

He tweeted: “Big thank you to all for giving me my career’s biggest opening ever.”

“What made me the happiest and proudest is when during a scene in my film, national anthem is recited and every one stood up as a mark of respect. There could be no bigger respect for our country than this… Jai Hind,” Salman added.

According to trade analyst Taran Adarsh, “Bharat”, which also stars actress Katrina Kaif, is Salman’s biggest Eid opener.

“‘Bharat’ storms the box office. Proves yet again Salman Khan is the biggest crowd puller. ‘Bharat’ opens much bigger than Salman and Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Tiger Zinda Hai (Rs 34.10 crore) and ‘Sultan’ (Rs 36.54 crore). ‘Bharat’ – Wednesday (Rs 42.30 crore) India business,” Taran tweeted.

“Bharat”, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, is an official remake of the Korean film “An Ode To My Father”. The Bollywood film depicts the history of India through the life of an ordinary man.

After receiving a positive response from the audience, Zafar said in a statement: “It is humbling to be showered this kind of love by audiences. I have tried to present Salman Khan in a totally new light and as a totally new hero with ‘Bharat’.

“I’m ecstatic that audiences have liked our attempt to make ‘Bharat’ a thoroughly entertaining joyride that also has its soul in the right place.”

The film also features Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff, Tabu, Satish Kaushik and Disha Patani.

Hrithik Roshan shares a new still from ‘Super 30’ ahead of its trailer

After sharing a captivating poster recently, Hrithik Roshan starrer ‘Super 30’ will be releasing its trailer today and the audience surely had been waiting for this moment with the trail of glimpses that the makers of the film had previously shared. The trailer is being touted to be the most awaited trailer of the season, with the audience awaiting its release ever since the first announcement of the film.

To raise the excitement amongst the audience Hrithik Roshan took to his social media handle and shared a still from the film. Sharing the same Hrithik Roshan writes, “Kya banna chahte ho? Rikki ya Bholu? Super 30 ke vidhyalay mein shaamil hone ke liye taiyaar ho? Milte hain ek baje. #Super30Trailer out today”

The first look of the film itself had created an immense buzz amongst the audience with Hrithik’s de-glam look winning appreciation from all across. With the shift of release, Super 30 has built an enormous curiosity base in the country where the trailer is being widely awaited.

On his recent visit to China for the release of his movie ‘Kaabil’, Hrithik expressed, “Super 30 is something that talks about the power and the value of education and teachers.

The teachers form the top of the societal chain in both these worlds.”

Marriage? Not anytime soon: Tamannah

Tamannah’s recent horror comedy Devi 2, a sequel to her earlier hit Devi, received mixed responses, but the actress says that she is keen to be part of Devi 3.

“I had to apply dull makeup to look my part of a village girl in both the parts. To make me look a little dusky was a cumbersome process. It took 2.5 hours for this tanned makeup. And you know, after this film, every director wants my skin tone to be changed. Even in Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy, I have a different body colour. I think it all started with Baahubali,” says Tamannah.

Ask her about the highly seductive song in Devi 2 and shae has a ready answer — “The character Devi is very naïve and hails from rural Tamil Nadu. She is suspicious of her husband Krisha having an affair outside. She is very confused as how to seduce her husband. She thinks that short clothes would do the trick and breaks into a dance. It is the character which does it and not me (laughs).” And she is quick to add, “Playing naïve is very tricky. If you overdo it, it becomes banal. Director Vijay was so particular to be subtle and organic. I think I was able to pull it off”

Unlike the earlier franchises where a ghost possesses her, Tammu says she wants to essay an exorcist in part 3. “Yes, I am ready for Devi 3, but I want to play an exorcist so that I can hunt all the spirits and expel them. It will be fun.”

On real life spooky experiences she says, “No, I have not come across any supernatural incidents in reality and I am not scared of ghosts. But all said and done more than spirits, human beings are dangerous. Some of them are creepy. I am really petrified about them.”

The actress also says she is ready to do a ‘single song’ like she did in KGF in Tamil, if anyone offers in Tamil. Quiz her about her marriage and she responds — “Not anytime soon! I have lots more to learn and achieve. I don’t know driving and even for that matter swimming. I want to learn swimming.”
