Everything that is old is new again in today’s Bollywood and Shah Rukh Khan‘s 1992 musical romance ‘Deewana‘ is no different.  The original version starred SRK as a man who falls in love with a widow and overcomes many obstacles to win her hand.  Rishi Kapoor played the widow’s murdered husband and the late Divya Bharti played the widow.

Guddu Dhanoa, who produced the original, announced his plans to remake the classic but insists it will share only the name and romantic subject matter with the original.  He elaborated by saying “We are making a romantic film but it is a completely different story. We are using the title ‘Deewana‘ but something would be added to the title. It is like how Bhatts are making films like ‘Murder‘ and ‘Jannat‘. I am also doing something similar.”

Although the script is ready, no word on castings yet as Dhanoa said “We are in talks with actors but nothing is finalized yet.

It’s also unknown whether SRK himself will be involved in the project, but audiences can next see the star with Deepika Padukone in ‘Chennai Express‘ coming out August 8th.

For those feeling nostalgic, here is the song ‘Aisi Deewangi‘ with SRK and Divya Bharti:

We’re hoping the wardrobe, hair, and everything else stay true to the original as it’s 90’s-tastic(!), but it’s not likely.

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani: Cracks U.S. Top 10 and Breaks Box Office Records in India!

Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ did great business worldwide and cracked the U.S. top ten at #9 this weekend with $1.3 million at the U.S. Box Office. The Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer also did great business in India where it made 19.45 Crore ( roughly $3.5 million in U.S. dollars…) in it’s first weekend with audiences no doubt flocking to screens to see the onscreen chemistry between the two former paragons.

This is the highest showing for a Bollywood film in the U.S. since last year’s ‘Jab Tak Hai‘ cracked the U.S. top ten by debuting at #8 in November 2012.  That movie was the swan song for legendary Bollywood director Yash Chopra, the so-called “King of Romance.”

Getting back to ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani‘, the film barely missed breaking Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg 2‘ record of 21.1 Crore (or $3.73 million dollars) but is this year’s box office champ so far in India.  The impressive showing of the film in America once again underscored the ever increasing appetite of American audiences for Bollywood fare in the U.S. Indian films in the U.S. often crack the top 20 in their debuts, but an Indian film cracking the top ten is a rarity that seems to be becoming more and more commonplace.

Hooray for Bollywood indeed!

Bollywood can’t help but rip-off Hollywood

As much as we love Bollywood, one must admit they do rip off of Hollywood quite a bit. Check out this video of movie posters below, and let me know what you think. Is it lack of creativity? Or is intentionally done to emulate Hollywood?

Veena Malik in video scandal

Controversy queen Veena Malik may have found a way to get everyone’s attention– again.  She’s now involved in a video scandal, according to sources. Given the woman in the steamy video has a striking resemblance to the naughty siren, this could very well be Veena just being Veena. Also, the guy in the recently released video is identified as Rajan Verma, her co-star in their upcoming film.  So could this be a cheap attempt to gain publicity for their movie? Is this infact Veena Malik or some woman trying to stir up trouble for the actress? I’ll let you decide…check out the clip.
