Mawra Hocane’s Next Bollywood Project

A strong piece of news on Mawra Hocane’s next Bollywood project is circulating in the media on which the actress hasn’t confirmed anything yet. It is heard that despite her not-so-HIT Bollywood debut in Sanam Teri Kasam, the actress has received much appreciation by the Indian film industry, and has, in fact, been approached again for a project in which she will be paired opposite the very stylish Varun Dhawan.

This so-called next film of Mawra’s is a sequel to Salman Khan’s 1997 hit film Judwaa, in which Varun is playing the lead, according to an official announcement. We wonder why Mawra has yet to get official on this.

Sochna kya hai Mawra ji … jab aap Harshvardhan Rane ke saath kaam kar sakti hain to Varun to upgrade hi hua na ji?

Ali Zafar To Be Co-Star of King Khan & Alia Bhatt

Pakistani heartthrob Ali Zafar has signed his seventh Bollywood film, and has hit the jackpot this time sharing screen-space with King Khan, Mr. Shahrukh, and newest Hollywood sensation Alia Bhatt.

The film is apparently an Indian ad-film by director Gauri Shinde, and according to media reports, it carries a lot of male-power with Shahrukh, Ali and Kunal Kapoor all romancing Ms. Bhatt. As per the director, the film is “Not going to be a typical romance feature”.

We hope Mr. Khan proves lucky to Ali Zafar, which would be a slight boost to his already proven talent.
