After a lull of three months owing to the second wave of coronavirus, Bollywood is slowly getting back on its feet as the shooting of several big films has resumed. Farhan Akhtar-starrer Toofaan is all set for release this week.

While Shah Rukh Khan has restarted the shoot of his upcoming YRF actioner Pathan with Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are reportedly gearing up to shoot Tiger 3 in the second half of July. Aamir Khan has already resumed the shoot of Laal Singh Chaddha in Ladakh. Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan too has gone on floors.

In perhaps the biggest film announcement of the year so far, Karan Johar revealed last week that he would be returning to direction with a love story titled Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, starring Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles. The film will also star Jaya Bachchan, Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi.

Ranveer Singh is not only making news on the film front, but he is also set to make a grand entry on the small screen with Colors quiz show, The Big Picture. Priyanka Chopra, meanwhile, is busy with big-ticket projects such as Citadel and Matrix.

Rhea Chakraborty posted a picture of herself on Monday. In the picture, she posed with a cap that had “Never Give Up” written over it.

Mouni Roy on Tuesday posted pictures with Mandira Bedi with a caption that read, “My baby strongest.” The photos came a few days after Mandira’s husband and filmmaker Raj Kaushal passed away.

Anubhav Sinha shared an exciting story behind the making of “Koi Fariyaad” for his film Tum Bin. The director said that Faaiz Anwar, who wrote the lyrics, had a tough time in convincing him. “Ghazal was to play a very integral part in telling the story. Faaiz Anwar was essentially a shayar and not a lyricist, but when I told him to write a ghazal for Tum Bin, the whole idea was I’d approve one sher (couplet) and then he would write the song around that. He would tell me a sher every now and then, and I kept refusing. Finally, I was at some shoot and he called me, and recited the lines “Ek lamhe mein simat aaya hai sadiyon ka safar. Zindagi tez bahut tez chali ho jaise.” I jumped at it and said this is it! He started laughing and asked me if I was aware that it was the 82nd sher, which means I had already rejected 81 shers,” Sinha revealed.

Manoj Bajpayee on Tuesday celebrated 20 years of his film Aks. “Can never forget the experience of preparing for the character and the moments shooting for it,” he wrote in a tweet.

Priyanka Chopra on Tuesday wished Siddharth Chopra a very happy birthday with a throwback picture. The photo features a young Priyanka having fun at the beach with Siddharth.

Suniel Shetty cleared some facts on Monday evening that there was just one Covid-19 positive case reported in his building. Suniel’s statement came after reports that his building has been sealed after Delta variant cases were detected. The actor also informed that his family is safe.

Kangana Ranaut shared an update on Thalaivi. The actor made it clear that the makers have not finalised a release date yet for the J Jayalalithaa biopic. 

Shah Rukh Khan-starrer romantic drama Devdas completed 19 years on July 12. The actor remembered the film by sharing a few stills, also featuring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Madhuri Dixit and Jackie Shroff.
