Bollywood has very few actors, who can claim to be good friends. Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn can be counted as one of them. Dutt has proved it many times and again Sanju has come to help Devgn. Sanjay has reportedly changed the release date of his next movie Knockout only to avoid clash with Ajay Devgn’s next release Aakrosh.

Bollywood’s Munnabhai Sanjay Dutt has recently celebrated his 51st birthday. The actor could not spend the day with his family as he was away from home in South Africa. But his beloved wife Manyata managed to make it special for her husband by gifting him a Black Bentley.
The very popular Munnabhai series is going to be back on the big screen, if a certain buzz is to be believed. The Munnabhai series has so far released Munnabhai MBBS and Lage Raho Munnabhai.
The director Rajkumar Hirani says, everywhere he goes, he is flooded with questions regarding the next edition of the Munnabhai. He is often asked about the official date of the release of the third Munnabhai.
Knock Out director Mani Shankar was not willing to comply with Irrfan’s insistent requests that he be allowed to do his own share of action to look at par with the film’s leonine action hero Sanjay Dutt.
In fact, Irrfan wanted to go further. He wanted to kill the villain in the climax of Knock Out. The thought exasperated and amused Sanjay Dutt and the director Mani Shankar since Irrfan’s character didn’t fit the role of the avenging macho man.
Believe it or not but a couple of upcoming actors along with Jimmy Shergill, have crushed Sanjay Dutt’s Lamhaa at the box office. Along with star studded Lamhaa, three small films – Tere Bin Laden, Udaan and Mel Karade Rabba (in Punjabi) clashed with each other at the box office. However, the unthinkable happened with each of the three films succeeding at the box office (in varied degree, of course) with an exception of Lamhaa that got totally whitewashed.
Lamhaa: Definitely deserves a watch
Rating: 3.5 out of 5*
Starring: Sanjay Dutt, Bipasha Basu, Kunal Kapoor and Anupam Kher
Director: Rahul Dholakia
While the burning issue of Kashmir has been handled before on the Indian screen rarely any effort has been such well researched, carrying such depth and effectively narrated with technical finesse as Rahul Dholakia (Parzania) directed Lamhaa. Taking you straight into ‘the world’s most dangerous place’, Dholakia offers a very disturbing piece that brings out many emotions out of you.
Director Rahul Dholakia’s latest movie Lamhaa starring Bipasha Basu, Sanjay Dutt, and Kunal Kapoor, has been banned the Middle East. The film is releasing in India tomorrow on July 16.
Lamhaa deals with the controversial Kashmir issue, which has been much politicized in these years. The content of the film has been the reason behind the ban as the subject is believed to be a controversial and objectionable one.
There have been numerous films in the past which has tackled this ‘sensitive’ issue, but only a few filmmakers have handled it ‘maturely’ but still … there is no ‘solution. Will this week’s release Lamhaa take a step further and also simultaneously appeal to the audiences? Our in-house expert and renowned astro numerologist Bhavikk Sangghvi predicts for us, as usual.
“Though Karisma Kapoor Was Willing To Act In Lamhaa, She Did Not Want To Come To The Valley Because She Was Scared”- Rahul Dholakia
Rahul Dholakia tells Jyothi Venkatesh that he decided to cast Sanjay because he needed a mature actor, not a Ranbir Kapoor type, to play the role of a middle-aged Military Intelligence Officer. What triggered the idea of making a film like Lamhaa?
