Playing for the bigger cause
It wasn’t All Stars Football Club (ASFC) team’s day when they faced Emirates United for a friendly match in Dubai recently. Led by Abhishek Bachchan with Ranbir Kapoor as his deputy, the Bollywood team played well, but to no avail. Despite a tough fight, the actors lost 0-3. “Impressed by the actor’s skills,” ASFC founder Bunty Walia promised they “will be planning more such events.” The team has been playing matches to raise funds for charitable causes. While the pandemic brought things to a halt, Abhishek said that they will continue making efforts to raise funds for the underprivileged.
Case closed for Sanya
Sanya Malhotra has completed filming Kathal. She plays a policewoman who takes up the bizarre case of a politician’s missing jackfruits to prove herself. The actor reached Gwalior, a few days before shooting commenced, to interact with the locals and get the dialect and pronunciation right. Juggling Kathal and south director Atlee’s next with Shah Rukh Khan, she didn’t get even a day’s break in two months.

Sharmila enthused, “I am happy to be in the familiar and well-loved ambience of a film set. I agreed almost immediately to be a part of Team Gulmohar after the moving narration of this heart-warming, beautifully written, layered and absorbing family drama.”
A crowded X’mas ahead
Christmas 2022 just got crowded. While Vikas Bahl’s Ganapath Part 1 with Tiger Shroff and Sriram Raghavan’s Merry Christmas with Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi were vying for box-office supremacy, Rohit Shetty has announced that his next, Cirkus, will open in cinemas the same day.
Starring Ranveer Singh and Varun Sharma in double roles, the comedy of errors also features Jacqueline Fernandez and Pooja Hegde. Since Merry Christmas has a festive connect, it remains to be seen which movie will bow out of the three-way clash.
