The most discussed recent lovebird has been spotted together with loving moms on the birthday of Ranbir Kapoor. Being a celebrity has its perks. Whether it’s the fame, the love you receive from around the world or the ability to travel around the world, a celebrity’s life is luxurious. Case in point, Alia Bhatt’s fabulous dress. Neetu Kapoor shared an adorable snap of Ranbir, Alia and the moms on Instagram on the occasion of the Rockstar’s birthday. In the photo, we spotted Alia in a pretty navy blue dress. We began looking around for it, and Alia’s association with Gucci is chic and extremely stylish.
We spotted Alia in a Jersey V-neck dress with Web that has vibrant red mid-waist a bold red bow belt. Sans make-up, Alia looked fresher than a daisy with silver ear loops and side-parted hair. Alia’s simple yet pretty dress demands a place in our wardrobes. Check it out.
We obviously began looking around for this dress to get our hands on it and the cost of the dress will definitely burn a hole in our pockets. This Gucci number costs $1,800 which will roughly cost you around Rs 1, 30, 653. While we take a moment to process that, over the last few months Gucci has gone on to become a fashion staple for most of our B-Town celebs. We’ve earlier spotted Karan Johar, Kareena Kapoor, Navya Naveli Nanda, have made the Gucci logo tee look glamorous and stylish.
Ranbir Kapoor’s transformation into Sanjay Dutt wasn’t an easy task. While we all are busy blowing whistles for Ranbir Kapoor’s apt portrayal of Sanjay Dutt in Sanju, little do we know what really went behind it. A year-long effort to get his looks right and the transformation of a lean looking Ranbir into someone as muscular as Dutt, it was easier said than done.
Rajkumar Hirani felt it was essential for his admirers and Ranbir’s fans to witness their journey from nothing to everything. The number of looks he rejected to the time when they finally got it right, the entire process was extremely tedious, time-consuming but not demotivating. His entire team was adamant to get it right and they continued striving hard till the expected results were finally achieved.
The video that starts with Hirani narrating his curiosity to figure out who can be Sanjay Dutt slowly explores the vital chapters of the making of Sanju. The way Ranbir had to work hard on his body to the time when he had to use prosthetics, the team’s journey can be described in only one word – commendable.
It’s always easy to bash a movie and hate an actor’s performance without realising the pain and efforts that were taken for it. The making of Sanju video just does that. It makes you aware of how difficult filmmaking really is and what efforts are really taken to achieve even the slightest detail of it.
The makers had to show many different lives of a single character spread across many years. It was a challenge Hirani took and we are so glad he succeeded at it.
Ranbir Kapoor’s relationship with women he dated (Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Mahira Khan) have made as much headlines as his special bond with mom Neetu Kapoor. The actor has confessed he’s a mumma’s boy. Ranbir who is fresh out of Sanju’s success is ecstatic and ready to compete with Ranveer Singh and Varun Dhawan. With his first film, Sanju becoming such a huge box office success the actor is looking forward to a long successful stint ahead.
But let’s move away from the man of the moment to his mommy. Neetu Kapoor had doled out a rather candid interview to Firstpost in 2011. The yesteryear actress made some revelations in this chat that we bet fans cannot miss. Here’s what Neetu Singh has to say about Ranbir Kapoor and his relationships
#Mommy knows the best
When the actress was asked what about her son she’d like to change, Neetu Kapoor said:
“He is too soft. He can’t hurt anybody. It’s the same with his relationships, he does not know how to say no, and gets into the deep end! I see it happening and can do nothing about it.
The first time he felt involved, I knew the girl was not right for him. But when I told him, he rebelled. So I learnt to tackle it another way. I told him don’t get serious so soon, the more you see the more you know and learn, so meet many girls, and go out with them , but don’t commit yet. But I have learnt to not be an irritant. I say it once and move away. It works.”
#This is what mom thinks of her Casanova sonAccording to Ranbir’s mother the actor has never approached a girl first, which means everyone RK Jr has dated from Deepika Padukone to Alia Bhatt, were the ones to make the first move and woo the actor into saying a yes. Neetu Kapoor said:
“I think he is charming, but he is very shy. I don’t see him approaching a girl. It’s they who make the first move, and he is too soft to say no, and gets involved. But he does confide in me, sometimes asks my advice. And I speak to him like a friend, and even try to get him out of an involvement if that is the best option.”
When Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor broke up, it was reported that the actress had caught RK red handed cheating. Buzz also suggested that Deepika did not manage to impress Ranbir’s mom Neetu and hence the relationship did not work out. Even during Katrina Kaif and Ranbir’s break-up rumour was that Neetu Kapoor did not approve of Katrina. Apparently, she was not happy when her son moved out with the actress from their family home. Ranbir and Katrina were in a live-in relationship, but soon after the split RK too left their house.

The Ranbir Kapoor starrer not only has fans and critics raving, it is also tracking humongous box office numbers. Based on the life-story of Bollywood’s most controversial actor Sanjay Dutt, this Rajkumar Hirani film is expected to hit the Rs 100 crore mark in its first weekend.
The Rajkumar Hirani directed Sanjay Dutt biopic starring Sanju hit theatres on Friday and in addition to getting raving reviews from fans and critics alike, the film is also tracking mammoth box-office numbers. According to trade analysts, Sanju could end up making more than Rs 100 crore on it’s opening weekend. The film has already been tracking box-office numbers of Rs 30 crore on its opening day, although official numbers are yet to be declared.
The Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanju made Rs 34.75 crore on its opening day at the box-office. Now, trade experts are predicting that much the like Salman Khan starrer Race 3, the Rajkumar Hirani directed Sanju too will hit the Rs 100 crore mark for its opening weekend box-office collections.
Bollywood actor Arshad Warsi believes that Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt, Paresh Rawal as Sunil Dutt and Vicky Kaushal as Sanju’s friend were outstanding. He calls it a flawless film with the best talents of the industry. Ever since its release Sanju has been getting raving reviews, not only from fans but also from critics.
If you haven't seen #Sanju yet, you are making a big mistake. Fun, friendship, laughter, tears & a story I am glad is told. A flawless film with the best talent our film industry has. Ranbir, Vicky & Paresh have nailed it & how. @RajkumarHirani is a magician 🙏🏼
The much-awaited Ranbir Kapoor starrer Race 3 hit theatres on Friday and received a massive occupancy of 60-65 per cent for the morning shows of the film. Afternoon occupancy numbers picked up even more leading to 75-80 per cent and night shows turned out to be the best for this Rajumar Hirani directed Sanjay Dutt biopic which were at 75-80 percent strong.
Sanju, the much-anticipated biopic on controversial Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt, arrived in the cinemas today. The film, directed by Rajkumar Hirani, is being seen as an extremely crucial film for its lead star Ranbir Kapoor in relation to his standing at the box-office. Ranbir, in the last five years, hasn’t delivered a full-blown hit. The actor’s last proper hit was Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013) that earned over Rs 188 crore at the box-office, also his biggest hit ever. Will Sanju turn out to be a game-changer for Ranbir Kapoor?
“Not just this film but the journey from this point onwards will be a game-changer for Ranbir Kapoor. The kind of choices that he has made after this film, whether its Shamshera or Brahmastra, we are looking at a brand new Ranbir Kapoor who is thinking mainstream commercial cinema,” said film trade analyst Akshaye Rathi, conviction in his voice.
“Over the last 10 years, Ranbir was, kind of, proving to the world that he is a great actor. I don’t think he needs to do that. He has proven that he is a phenomenal actor, one of the best in this country as of today. Now it’s time for him to prove his stardom not acting chops,” Akshaye said further.
Akshaye asserted that Ranbir, given the choices he has made after Sanju, will go on to become one of the biggest stars of this country.
“And I think with the kind of mainstream commercial films he is beginning to choose now, he is going to show the world what a star he is. Going by his choices, I bet he is going to be among the biggest stars this country has ever seen,” he signed off saying.
Sanjay Dutt’s biopic Sanju releases tomorrow. The movie features Ranbir Kapoor essaying the role of the controversial movie star. Well, there was a secret that makers had kept under wraps over the months – Sanjay makes a special appearance in his biopic. But the cat is out of the bag now. The first still of Sanjay’s cameo in Sanju is out and we have it for you!
Though the cat has come out of the bag not too before the release of the film. But we are sure you’d love to be the first one to see the picture of Sanjay in Sanju. The actor is seen in the same frame as on-screen Sanju, Ranbir. Both are twinning in black suits and looking dapper. The picture looks like it belongs to some special song from the film. Maybe in the post-credits sequence.
Well, director Rajkumar Hirani was also in a dilemma as to whether include Sanjay in the movie or not. Though Deccan Chronicle has reported that makers eventually went ahead with the idea. “It felt like an intrusion in the creative process. The minute you introduce the real character in a biopic, you provide visual proof of how far your creativity is from reality. But the makers realised that the audience would be expecting the real Sanjay Dutt to show up at least once. Besides, Ranbir was okay with it,” a source was quoted by the news daily.
Sanju also stars Paresh Rawal, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Karishma Tanna, Vicky Kaushal, Jim Sarbh amongst others.
Swara Bhasker and controversies go hand in hand. Every second day there is a news about one or other controversy of the Nil Battey Sannata star. Earlier this month, her film Veere Di Wedding released and turned out to be a big success at the box office and Swara’s performance in the film was highly acclaimed. While the makers and other lead stars were basking in the success of the film, Swara once again faced the ire of social media trolls for her masturbation scene in the film.For days, trolls on social media were only talking about this one sequence rather than the whole film. There were several heated exchanges among the fans and trolls, Swara too reacted to it, so did her mother.
And now the star of upcoming Sanjay Dutt biopic, Sanju, Ranbir Kapoor too has reacted to the now iconic (?) scene featuring Swara. In a recent interview, Ranbir was asked about his reaction to Swara Bhasker being trolled for her masturbation scene in Veere Di Wedding.
Interestingly, Ranbir was caught off guard as he admitted he wasn’t aware that there is such scene in the film, which is kinda hard to believe unless he was living under a rock.Anyway, here’s what a surprised Ranbir Kapoor told Bollywood Hungama.
She’s done a masturbation scene? Oh wow, I should see the film. I don’t have a take on trolls. I have no take on it. But I really want to see the film now.
Well, Swara Bhasker’s masturbation scene has piqued Ranbir Kapoor’s interest in Veere Di Wedding
