Shocking: Sleazy Sridevi titled film to receive restraining order

Entertainment
How far can a filmmaker go in pursuit of the audiences’ attention without seeming intrusive? Sridevi Bungalow is the title given to a film directed by some unknown chap named Prashanth Mambully. It was announced a few months ago with Priya Prakash Varrier and immediately invited the wrath of Sridevi fans. The teaser showed Priya Varrier lying inert in a bath-tub, a distasteful reference to the real Sridevi’s tragic end. The utterly reprehensible attempt to cash in on the legendary iconic Diva’s name and reputation must be condemned by all her fans and admirers and must be discouraged by film industry which hero-worships the late actress. Instead we have out-of-work actors like Arbaaz Khan pitching in with their two-bit. The latest to join the cast of this corny anti-homage is a certain f

25 years after Hum…Aapke Hain Koun created history, Salman Khan and Sooraj Barjatya are all set to come together again, hopefully to create history again. Their last outing together Prem Ratan Dhan Payo was a 3-hour syrupy homage to the angelic Ideal Hero Salman Khan. But Salman now wants Sooraj to come up with an out-of-the-box idea. Says a source close to the Barjatyas, “Soorajji and Salmanji are in touch constantly. Salman has done four blockbusters with Soorajji where he has played Prem, the ideal son and brother. It’s time to move on for both, do something unexpected.” Not that Salman will suddenly swerve into doing a negative role. He won’t play anyone who is an unworthy example to his fans.
