Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor
Ever since Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt have announced her pregnancy, a lot has been written about the to-be parents. While we know that Alia is due next month, it is now being said that she is most likely to deliver between November 20 and 30. Sources claim that the date is likely to be around Alia’s sister Shaheen’s birthday—November 28. The mom to-be has reportedly pre-booked a suite at the HN Reliance Hospital, in South Mumbai, for the delivery. Incidentally, it’s
the same hospital where Ranbir’s father Rishi Kapoor was last admitted for cancer treatment before his demise on April 30, 2020.
The shoot of Shahid Kapoor and Kriti Sanon’s maiden collaboration kickstarted in Mumbai on Saturday, under the direction of Amit Joshi. Set against the backdrop of robotics, the first schedule of the film will also have Dimple Kapadia joining the cast. Like Kriti, this film reunites the veteran actor with producer Dinesh Vijan, who first collaborated for Being Cyrus (2005). Apart from Mumbai, the movie will be shot in Delhi and Europe extensively. The film will hit theatres some time next year.
Chargesheet filed by NCB
Legal trouble comes calling for the couple with a funny bone—Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa. Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has filed a 200-page chargesheet against the couple before the court in connection with their 2020 drug case. They were granted bail after being arrested in November 2020, for alleged possession of cannabis. Both Bharti and Haarsh had accepted consumption of Ganja, when NCB seized 86.5 grams of ganja from their home.

Rajini on a roll
Even though his last few releases haven’t set the box office ablaze, Rajinikanth continues to be chased by filmmakers. The superstar, who is currently working on his film Jailer, has signed two more films. This development sees him reunite with Lyca Productions, which previously backed his sci-fi hit, 2.0 (2018), the sequel of Enthiran (2010). While there’s no official word on the new projects, reportedly, one of the films will see the Thailavaa team up with Mani Ratnam, whose Ponniyin Selval: I with the same production house released last month. The production house will make an official announcement after a puja ceremony on November 5.

Talking AI and VFX now
While Om Raut is said to be reworking on the VFX of his upcoming film, Adipurush, talk in the trade is that the filmmaker is in talks with Ranveer Singh for his next. Apparently, the director has approached the Jayeshbhai Jordaar actor for an ambitious VFX-driven project. What makes it unique is that Om wants to use artificial intelligence (AI) technology to shoot the entire movie. Though Ranveer has reportedly liked the basic concept of the magnum opus, things will be finalised only after he greenlights the final script and then signs on the dotted line. His decision also depends on how Adipurush finally fares, given the flak the trailer received for its amateurish VFX.
