Directing Salman is no less than a dream come true: Remo D’Souza
Ever since choreographer Remo D’Souza donned the director’s hat, he has been on a roll. With movies such as FALTU (2011), ABCD (2013), ABCD 2 (2015) and A Flying Jatt (2016), he has successfully carved a niche for himself in the industry. The latest buzz is that Remo is teaming up with actor Salman Khan for his next dance film.
“Though we are yet to make an official announcement, I think Salman (sir) has already mentioned it somewhere in the media. I’m happy to do a film with him at such an early stage in my directorial career,” says Remo without divulging more details.
Remo who is a “huge fan” of Salman, and has worked with him on several songs, says collaborating with him for a film is going to be a different experience altogether. “My chemistry with Salman goes long back and we have a great equation. Doing a film with him is no less than a dream,” he says.
About Salman’s peculiar dancing style, Remo says, “People think that Salman does his own style of dancing, which he doesn’t do most of the time.”
Also, Salman will reportedly play a father to a 13-year-old daughter. “I don’t see any harm in him playing a father on screen. It’s amazing how Aamir (Khan) also played such a role and got into that mode,” says Remo, adding, “ Initially, the audience didn’t like actors playing elderly roles. But the perception is changing now. The audience is now accepting that an actor can play a solo lead, an action hero and a father as well.”
Karan Johar's loose talk on Kajol ruined their relationship, is playing dirty says source close to Ajay Devgn and Kajol
Karan Johar is playing dirty, says source close to Ajay Devgn and Kajol
Excerpts of director Karan Johar’s book on his friendship gone sour has created a lot buzz and sources close to actors Ajay Devgn and his wife have countered it with shocking news.
The war of words between filmmaker Karan Johar and actor Ajay Devgn has gone to the next level, as excerpts from the former’s book about Devgn’s wife Kajol hit headlines on Thursday. In the excerpts of The Unsuitable Boy, Johar has written about his equation with once good friend Kajol, going sour.
“I don’t have a relationship with Kajol anymore. We’ve had a fallout. Something happened that disturbed me deeply which I will not talk about because it’s something that I like to protect and I feel it would not be fair to her or to me. After two and a half decades, Kajol and I don’t talk at all. We just acknowledge each other, say ‘hello’ and walk past,” read the excerpts.
He goes on to write, “Prior to the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, a lot happened. Things were said, crazy accusations were made against me, that I had bribed someone to sabotage the image of her husband’s film. I wouldn’t like to give a piece of myself to her at all because she’s killed every bit of emotion I had for her for twenty five years. I don’t think she deserves me. I feel nothing for her anymore. I don’t even want to speak about her husband because it’s inconsequential to my life now. He doesn’t matter to me, he never did. I still don’t want to say anything about her husband because I want to respect the history she and I shared.”
Sources close to Ajay Devgn and Kajol have revealed that it was Karan Johar’s loose talk about Kajol which ruined their relationship with the filmmaker.
While both Devgn and Kajol have refrained from commenting, a source close to Devgn hit back. “Karan is doing this just to sell his book. The whole industry knows that Karan bitches about people behind their back. Even Shah Rukh Khan was upset with Karan because of his comments against Priyanka Chopra. Two years ago at a party, Karan indulged in really loose talk about Kajol in front of an A-list actor. That actor, in turn, told Ajay Devgn about it. Ajay even asked that actor why, despite being Karan’s friend, is he telling him about it. The actor said that if Karan could badmouth Kajol in front of him, he could also gossip about him someday. Ajay was obviously furious - any man would be if his wife was talked about in such light. So he called Karan and abused him on the phone. He told Karan that ‘you can say what you wish about my film but don’t talk about my wife and family.’”
The source, choosing to remain anonymous, adds, “This issue is two years old. Much before the clash between Karan’s film (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil) and Ajay’s film (Shivaay) happened. The fact that it is being discussed now, and so is Karan’s sexual orientation, is clearly to remain in news to sell his book. He can do whatever he wishes, but he can’t make a villain out of Ajay Devgn in that process. This is just playing dirty.”
Our request to Karan Johar for a comment remained unanswered.

“He said the mastery of your body is so impressive from a third person’s point of view because of the way you turn and the way you stand impacts more than the words and the lines and I explained that comes from being a bouncer.”
“And standing on the front door with a look on my face that says ‘Don’t even think about it’,” he added.
