3Novices: Do Karan Wahi – Elnaaz Norouzi play Salman Khan – Katrina Kaif in Sacred Games?

Do Karan Wahi – Elnaaz Norouzi play Salman Khan – Katrina Kaif in Sacred Games?

While the new Netflix series Sacred Games is being talked about for many reasons not many have noticed that the spoilt brattish movie star Karan Malhotra (played by Karan Wahi) and his clever manipulative girlfriend star Zoya Mirza (Elnaz Norouzi) seem to be based on Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif.

Do Karan Wahi - Elnaaz Norouzi play Salman Khan - Katrina Kaif in Sacred Games

As played by Wahi, the bratty superstar Karan Malhotra is so possessive of his girlfriend that he doesn’t allow her to work with other heroes. In a sequence he boasts of how he has gotten her expelled from a film with ‘Ranbir’ and that she better busy herself doing a film with Karan that has just been offered to her.

The steely cold-war between Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor is well-known in the entertainment industry. At one point in the series, Zoya is seen with bruise marks on her face seeking sympathy from a senior cop (played by Neeraj Kabi). When the cop offers to help, Zoya says, “Nothing can be done. He once killed two people in a hit-and-run accident. Nothing happened.”

This plot point harks back to Salman’s infamous hit-and-run case. While no one from the film’s team was willing to shed light on this star and his girlfriend’s actual identity a close friend of Salman says, “I saw Sacred Games. There are definite Salman-Katrina parallels in the roles played by Karan Wahi and the firangi actress. But I think it’s just a random reference included to spice up the plot. Not a specific Salman replica.”

3Novices: NTR: Rakul Preet Singh to play Sridevi in this biopic?

NTR: Rakul Preet Singh to play Sridevi in this biopic?

After Vidya Balan, yet another actress from B-town is all set to make a rather interesting appearance in the NTR biopic. Rakul Preet Singh has apparently been approached to play the role of the late actress Sridevi in the film.

If the recent reports are to be believed, Rakul Preet Singh, in all possibility, may play the celebrated superstar Sridevi. It seems that NTR and Sridevi were one of the most popular onscreen pairs during that generation. The duo has acted together in as many as 14 films which include Bobbili Puli and Justice Chowdhary. These reports also claim that the actress may have got to give up on the project despite her keenness. It seems that Rakul, who was approached for the role recently, was initially really keen on saying a yes but she has a hectic schedule that may act as a spoilsport.

The reports state that all of this is still in the discussion stage and an official announcement will be made soon. Considering that Rakul already has NGK, Karti starrer Dev amongst other films, the actress is expected to be running on a packed schedule. On the Bollywood front, she will be seen alongside Ajay Devgn and Tabu in the next Luv Ranjan production, directed by Akiv Ali.

Coming to the film, NTR biopic is being planned on much grand scale. As for the casting, the film will feature Vidya Balan as Basavatarakam. The actress, who has rarely been a part of South projects, will be seen as NTR’s wife in the film which features NTR’s son Nandamuri Balakrishna as NTR. Besides them, Rana Daggubati is expected to essay the role of the then Andhra Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and Jisshu Sengupta as L V Prasad, the filmmaker who launched NTR.

NTR, that traces the life journey of this actor and politician, is directed by Krish and is expected to be one of the most awaited projects in Tollywood. In fact, the first poster of the film too received a great response.

3Novices: EXCLUSIVE! Jackie Shroff to play Salman Khan’s FATHER; Priyanka Chopra to play Salman’s wife in BHARAT!

EXCLUSIVE! Jackie Shroff to play Salman Khan’s FATHER; Priyanka Chopra to play Salman’s wife in BHARAT!

After eight years later, Jackie Shroff and Salman Khan will come together in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat. The last time both were seen together was in Veer: An Epic Love Story Of A Warrior (2010). However, unlike their last film, where they clashed with each other, in Bharat, Jackie will play Salman’s father and Priyanka Chopra who has been signed to play the female lead will play Salman’s wife. Like Salman, as they become older in the film, she too will sport five different looks in the movie with the help of prosthetics.

EXCLUSIVE! Jackie Shroff to play Salman Khan’s FATHER; Priyanka Chopra to play Salman’s wife in BHARAT!

Says a trade source, “The role of Salman’s father may not be a big one but it’s pivotal to the film and shapes Salman’s character and who he becomes later. It was Salman who wanted Jackie to play this powerful role. It starts in 1947 when the Partition takes place and thousands of families are separated and ends in 2000. The movie is the journey of a country and also a person, both of whom go by the name of Bharat. Ode To My Father begins with the Hungnam Evacuation in 1950 when many families got separated in Korea and the father tells his son Yoon  Deok-soo, ‘If I don’t come you are the head of the family that means whatever happens you put the family first. Now, that you are the head of the family, look after them well.’ Jackie plays Salman’s father and his words remain with the young boy (Salman) right till the end. They get separated during the Partition in Bharat but his father’s words and desire to reunite with him remains right till the end.”

While the film is an official adaptation of the South Korean drama film, Ode to My Father (2014), Bharat has been adapted to Indian audiences with certain changes. But the source adds, “Like Ode To My Father, which spans over many years, Bharat’s story will span over a period of 50 years and that’s why we will see Salman Khan sporting five different looks in the movie – as a young boy who witnesses the Partition to the current years when he is an old man. As the firstborn, Bharat becomes his family’s breadwinner from an early age, doing all manner of odd jobs to support the family. The film begins from a modern day elderly couple (Salman and Priyanka) reminiscing about their past and how they fell in love and got married. So we will get to see a very young Priyanka Chopra and Salman Khan and old ones too. There are flashbacks to various phases of time. Like Ode To My Father which depicted Korean history from the 1950s till the recent times, Bharat too will highlight various important events of Indian history.”

Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bharat began shoot on Sunday at Mumbai’s Filmistan Studios resembling a circus tent with Disha Patani and Salman Khan. The film will have Salman playing a stunt motorcyclist while Disha will be a trapeze artiste. Produced by Atul Agnihotri, Bharat will be filmed in Abu Dhabi, Spain, Malta, Punjab and Delhi.
