Two successful decades in fashion is a great achievement for any designer and Payal Singhal has not only carved a niche for herself in the country but also got a loyal following around the globe. Her celebratory collection called “Gypsies and Bohemia” at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2019 chalked out her DNA and inspirations perfectly. Selecting her showstoppers carefully to match the theme of the show, there was glamorous, bohemia with a gypsy touch when Payal brought Bollywood’s favourite couple, Shibani Dandekar (who is Payal’s favourite muse) and her beau the very handsome Farhan Akhtar. The pair looked ultra-stylish in coordinated ecru creations.

Farhan Akhtar takes on Hrithik Roshan yet again

Entertainment
Muscling in with a big-budgeted blockbuster at the last minute is now becoming a norm. Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidwani did it once earlier to Hrithik Roshan when in January 2017; they released their Shah Rukh Khan starrer Raees alongside Roshan’s Kaabil although the Roshans had announced their film from long before. Sidhwani and Farhan are doing it again. They are all set to release the Hindi version of Telugu cinema’s most expensive film to date Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy on the same day as Hrithik’s big action starrer War for Yash Raj films. A source close to War says Ritesh and Farhan’s move is unethical. “Aditya Chopra and Yash Raj Film had announced War for 2nd October, months ago. Suddenly Excel (Farhan and Ritesh’s company) comes up with this dubbed Hindi film. It just upsets everyt

Uri – The Surgical Strike owes its debt to Farhan Akhtar and here’s why

Entertainment
Farhan Akhtar inadvertently proved a source of inspiration for Aditya Dhar’s Uri. Recounting the sequence of events Aditya says, “I was doing research on what makes Indian army soldiers volunteer to be part of the Special Tasks Force. You must understand that the training for the special tasks force involves the kind of hardships that take a soldier beyond the breaking point. So I asked the soldiers what makes them volunteer for this. Some said, they did it because they come from a family of army men. Others said they did it because their father thought they would never be able to do anything in life.” One Special Task Force volunteer surprised Aditya Dhar by saying he was inspired by a film. “That young soldier—and I still remember his face—said he was inspired by Farhan Akhtar’s film L

Just last month we had reported that Paresh Rawal had been roped in to feature in the Farhan Akhtar starrer Toofan. Now, we hear that Mrunal Thakur, who will soon be seen in the John Abraham starrer Batla House, has also been signed on for the film. If that wasn’t all, we also hear that Mrunal has also bagged a role in Umesh Shukla’s next. Commenting on the same a source close to the film says, “Yes, after Paresh Rawal, Mrunal has been cast for Toofan. While Rawal will be seen playing Farhan Akhtar’s coach in the film, it is still unclear what role Mrunal will be seen in. However, given the fact that the film is sports drama revolving around Farhan’s character, it is safe to say that Mrunal Thakur’s role will be connected to his.” Further talking about the second venture for which Mrunal
