Ab toh Dangal hoga!

It’s a Dangal-wala Friday. The aam aadmi can finally watch the much-awaited Aamir Khan film, which has garnered rave reviews from critics.

When I went online to book my tickets, I noticed something among the list of Dangal shows: an “exclusive” screening for women.

“Exclusively for women”. You read that right. But what is the difference? I was curious. Here’s what I found when I clicked the link:


3. Earlier Banned By the CBFC, ‘Haraamkhor’ Now Gets Certified ‘UA’

In June this year, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) refused to give debutant director Shlok Sharma’s film Haraamkhor a censor certificate. This meant that the members which viewed the film found it unfit to be screened in India, they had effectively ‘banned’ it. However, after a rather long battle, the makers of this Nawazuddin Siddiqui-Shweta Tripathi-starrer have now got a ‘UA’ certificate and a release date for their film.

Haraamkhor revolves around an illicit relationship between a school teacher and his teenage student, which is what irked the sanskaari CBFC the first time. Speaking to The Quint, Shlok Sharma says, “The first time, the CBFC told us point blank that they would not certify the film, which came as a shock to us. But we knew we had made a responsible film and were ready to fight for our right to get it certified and released.”

Saif and Kareena are now back home with their newborn son Taimur and daddy dear has reportedly taken a whole month off work as paternity leave.

Saif was scheduled to shoot for the Hindi remake of Jon Favreau’s Hollywood flick Chef, the actor has apparently decided to stay home with his wife and child till mid-January.

Airlift director Raja Krishna Menon is helming the Hollywood remake and is planning the film’s shoot schedule keeping in mind Saif’s new commitment.

In our film, the chef travels all over India with his truck. The international schedule was planned recently. It will be a wrap by mid-February. In India we’ve already shot across Kerala and Goa, besides Delhi and Amritsar. I have just completed the recce in the US and Europe. By next week we’ll decide where we will go for the final shoot, it will be one of these two destinations. We are yet to shoot the climax and the destination plays an important part, that shoot will kick off by mid-January.

The cutest couple in town – Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma – have had a habit to be in the news for several years now, and it’s almost impossible for them to go on a secret holiday, although rumour has it, they have gone for such an holiday for new years.

And why not? They have had a terrific 2016 professionally and personally. It will be a fitting end to an extraordinary year for the superstars in their own right.

The Indian Test captain led his team to victory in all Test series this year and notched 1,762 runs across all formats, while Anushka was part of two blockbusters – Sultan and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
