In a pairing that may well be considered out of the ordinary, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Ayushmann Khurrana are set to share the screen in Meghna Gulzar's next. The buzz is that the film will be titled Daayra, and will be a crime thriller based on the Hyderabad rape case. A trade source confirmed the news. Gulzar had previously brought Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal together in Raazi, a film that gained as much appreciation for its narrative as it did for the casting. Kapoor was previously seen in Crew, and will feature in Singham Again. Khurrana was seen in the 2023 offering, Dream Girl 2.

Up for a fight

Anil Kapoor has begun preparing for his upcoming project, Subedaar. The actor took to social media yesterday to share a picture revealing his prep work for the film. "Abhi toh haath utha hi kahaan hai. Yeh toh bas taiyyari hai," he wrote. Veteran actor Anupam Kher took to the comments section to wish him well. Subedaar is directed by Suresh Triveni and is set to stream on Prime Video. Meanwhile, Bigg Boss OTT season 3, which is set to drop on OTT on June 21, marks Kapoor's first stint as a host.

It's out

The music video for Bhairava Anthem from Nag Ashwin's upcoming Telugu sci-fi entertainer Kalki 2898 AD is out. It features Telugu superstar Prabhas as he shakes a leg with Punjabi actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh. The music video takes place on a rustic set filled with futuristic vehicles and gadgets. We see shots of Prabhas - in his character's get-up - as he pulls off action sequences. Dosanjh even teases fans with his now-popular catchphrase, "Punjabi aa gaye oye," which he made famous at his debut Coachella performance last year.

All is well at home

Rubbishing rumours of a rift between Shatrughan Sinha and his daughter, actor Sonakshi Sinha, Pahlaj Nihalani said all is well within the family. Suggesting that Sinha senior was unlikely to object to his daughter's choice when picking a life partner, Nihalani recalled that the veteran actor had also, eventually, married a woman of his choice. Rumours of a rift emerged when Shatrughan was asked about Sonakshi's upcoming nuptials with Zaheer Iqbal. Shatrughan had then said that he knew only as much as the media did, and would wish his daughter well, when she chose to share the news with him. Trolls then criticised him for his apparent indifference.

Calling animal lovers

Days after a food blogger shared a picture of her meal and claimed she was "proud to be a vegetarian", Swara Bhasker criticised the creator. "I'm proud to be a vegetarian. My plate is free from tears, cruelty, and guilt," wrote the blogger, prompting a response from the actor. "Honestly, I don't understand this smug self-righteousness of vegetarians. Your entire diet is made up of denying the calf its mother's milk, forcibly impregnating cows, then separating them from their babies, and stealing their milk. You eat root vegetables. That kills the whole plant! Please relax with the virtue signalling just because it's Bakr Eid!"

Extending wishes

Priyanka Chopra Jonas extended warm greetings on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha. Taking to Instagram stories, Chopra, who has 91.3 million followers, wrote, "Wishing that your sacrifices are appreciated and your prayers are answered by the Almighty. Have a blessed Eid-ul-Adha!" Chopra will next be seen in Heads of State, an action-comedy film directed by Ilya Naishuller, also starring Idris Elba and John Cena.

Do you see it?

It may never have been obvious, but we see it now! Taapsee Pannu recently revealed that she was "brought into" the Bollywood film industry due to her resemblance to Preity Zinta. Pannu, who appeared on cricketer Shikhar Dhawan's talk show, Dhawan Karenge, shared, "I was first brought into Bollywood because I share a resemblance with Preity Zinta. She has good energy, and you know it well. Preity ma'am is lively, and seems intelligent. I felt like I had to live up to her reputation. So, I always put in an effort to be like her." Dhawan is the captain of the IPL team owned by Zinta.
