The vivacious, free spirited Sonam Kapoor plays a physiotherapist who turns the life of Sambhalpur's royal family upside down in Khoobsurat. But as bright and cheerful her personality is, she is surely a very famous physiotherapist and guess who she works with before treating Fawad's royal family in the film... the Kolkata Knight Riders.
Yes, Shah Rukh Khan's Kolkata Knight Riders has a strong connection with the film and if you are wondering what it is, then let us tell you that Sonam Kapoor plays the official physiotherapist of the Kolkata Knight Riders team. In fact, in the opening sequence, we get to see Sonam treating a player from the team for back problem during an IPL match.
Well that's not where the surprise ends. Apart from Aditi Rao Hydari's cameo, we will once again see Cyrus Sahukar doing a special appearance in this Rhea Kapoor film. Previously, the VJ turned actor played a prominent role in the Sonam Kapoor starrer Aisha. In this film, he plays the role of Fawad Khan's childhood friend.
Directed by Shashank Gosh, Khoobsurat also stars Kirron Kher, Ratna Pathak, Aamir Raza Hussain among others and is slated to release on September 19. The film is the official remake of the 80s classic by the same name that starred Rekha and Rakesh Roshan in the lead.
Recently engaged Soha Ali Khan is busy with Chaarfutiya Chhokare and now, she has signed yet another film. The film in question is yet to be titled and stars Rahul Bose and veteran actor Vinod Khanna.
This film is said to be a road film but is not solely adventurous. Set in the backdrop of romance, it will also tap into the spiritual side of human personality. Though she did not elaborate on the plot or divulge any details about the character of Vinod Khanna, Soha Ali Khan mentioned that the legendary star will be playing a very unusual character. On the other hand, Soha Ali Khan will be seen playing the role of a free spirited college student who is already married.
This untitled project will also mark the Bollywood debut of filmmaker Varun Malhotra who has previously worked with ad filmmaker Ram Madhvani. The film will be shot amidst the valleys of Dharmshala and Hrishikesh. It is slated to go on floors in October and the cast will wrap up the schedule by December.
Apart from Chaarfutiya Chhokare, Soha Ali Khan will also be seen in 31st October, a political thriller based on Sikh riots.

Right after the success of Kick, Jacqueline Fernandez resumed the shoot of the Ranbir Kapoor starrer Roy and now we hear that Remo D'Souza will soon be signing the actress for his next. Tiger Shroff, son of Jackie Shroff who made his debut with Heropanti, will be starring as the male lead.
There were many names being tossed around for the leading lady but recently Remo D'Souza stated that they will soon be working out the formalities with Jacqueline Fernandez. Remo even expressed that he always wanted to work with Jacqueline and is thrilled about the opportunity. Currently, the cast and crew of Roy is stationed at Malaysia to complete the shoot schedule of the film and Jacqueline who plays a double role in this film too is busy shooting for the same. Hence, Remo has decided to wait for the actress till she returns.
Not only that, Tiger Shroff is presently training for Sabbir Khan's next film after his debut and has been learning advanced level of martial arts. Tiger, known for his high octane stunts, also has plans to pay a tribute to the Hong Kong based action film star Bruce Lee. Tiger did something similar for his dance idol Michael Jackson recently. However, for Bruce Lee, the actor will appear with his action teacher Deepak Das.
The untitled project directed by Remo D'Souza will be produced by Ekta Kapoor.
Super Nani being Rekha's comeback film is all set to release this Diwali. However, the actress has a lot in mind when it comes to this film. Not only will she portray the role of a grandmother like her stint in Krrish but we will see a drastic transformation of this conventional nani moving beyond the confines of quintessential Indian grandmothers.
And Amitabh Bachchan too is a part of the plot. Not quite literally though! Apparently the plot of Super Nani will see Sharman Joshi, who plays Rekha's grandson, transforming the image of his otherwise traditional nani into a modern grandmother in order to give a new meaning to her life. Inspiring her to do something big in her life, Sharman encourages her to break away from unnecessary norms and his Super Nani soon turns into a commercial model.
Hence, when she gets an offer from her friend played by Anupam Kher for starring in an ad commercial, she is asked to ape the mannerisms of legendary superstar Amitabh Bachchan which the actress obliges to do. Talking about it, director Indra Kumar even stated that this commercial which apparently is shot for a prestigious brand in the film is very hilarious.
Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha haven't been seen sharing screen space since the 80s post the Yash Chopra directorial Silsila. Though there were speculations about them acting together in the Anees Bazmee directorial Welcome Back, the deal did not get through.
Super Nani which was initially slated to release in May was later postponed to October 24 and will now be clashing with superstar Shah Rukh Khan starrer Happy New Year. Starring Shweta Kumar, Super Nani is produced by Indra Kumar along with Ashok Thakeria. The trailer of the film is slated to release along with Sonam Kapoor, Fawad Khan starrer Khoobsurat, which incidentally is a remake of a Rekha classic.
After ruling Bollywood for almost a decade, Kajol decided to take break from films owing to motherhood. And now the actress is all set to make her comeback on the big screen with her husband Ajay Devgn's upcoming production. Despite being busy with her future ventures and family commitments, the actress never skips being a part of social causes.
And now, working towards yet another social cause for the UN, Kajol has decided to join the micro blogging site Twitter. Her family which includes her husband Ajay Devgn and her sister Tanisha have been a part of the Twitter family for long. However, caught amidst her personal commitments, Kajol stayed away from social networking platforms until recently.
In fact, as soon as Kajol joined Twitter she did not forget to mention the fact that this was strictly for a social cause. Her tweets read, "Hi guys!!! Joining Twitter for a few weeks, all for a good cause :)" What followed after that was a series of links which spoke about her association with UN and good work that the actress has been doing for the development of the society.
Reacting on his wife joining Twitter and also elaborating on the cause that Kajol is working for, Ajay Devgn too took to the microblogging site, stating, "Very Proud to see @KajolAtUN advocating Handwashing at the UN and supporting the #HelpAChildReach5 Movement.
Though only for weeks, Kajol's fans will surely be more than happy to interact with the actress.
After having done socially relevant and light hearted roles in films like Jolly LLB and Mr Joe B. Carvalho, it now seems that Arshad Warsi is all set to try his hand with really serious roles. Maybe that explains the reason as to why he has signed a film named Babloo, which is a story about a UP gangster Babloo Shrivastava.
This film, which is being directed Manish Vatsalya, is expected to go on the floor by the end of this year. Speaking about the film, Manish Vatsalya said that they will be shooting at real locations in India and abroad.
Arshad Warsi seems to be on a roll with this being his fourth film in the pipeline. The actor, who will be soon seen in The Legend Of Michael Mishra and Guddu Rangeela along with Aditi Rao Hydari, has even signed Welcome To Karachi which was launched with much fanfare recently.
After Arnold Schwarzenegger's flash-visit to Chennai on Monday, on Tuesday the city was abuzz with reports of the amazing Kamal Haasan being hospitalized. All sorts of wild rumours about his health were being spread.
Speaking exclusively from Apollo Hospital in Chennai, Kamalji says, "I am here because of food poisoning and dehydration, nothing more serious than that."
The stomach infection happened while shooting. Says Kamalji, "We were shooting in the interiors of Kerala where there were no proper restaurants. We ate at road side dhabas, probably drank infected water. One of those makeshift food places did not agree with me. So here I am."
As the news spread about Kamalji's hospitalization, crowds of anxious fans began swarming the hospital premise.
On a lighter note the actor says, "I know a lot of people would like to make a drama out of this. Sorry to disappoint them. I am fine. It's just a simple case of food poisoning. No cause for alarm."
After the disastrous Humshakals, it seems that Saif Ali Khan has now started to play safe as far as his films and onscreen characters are concerned. The film which he has reportedly signed now is called Mr. Chaalu, wherein he plays a manipulative womanizer. While the film is being produced by Excel Entertainment, it is being directed by Reema Kagti.
If the reports are to be believed, then, Saif's character in the film is penciled on the lines of what he had earlier played in films like Kal Ho Na Ho, Dil Chahta Hai, and Salaam Namaste. His character is that of a smoothoperator, who, with the help of his impeccable charms, weaves his way into a woman's heart with the promise of marrying her, only to dupe her later. But the entry of the fiery and smarter-than-him Kangna Ranaut in his life changes it forever.
The film is supposed to be shot in Mumbai and Goa and is expected to go on the floors on January 15 next year and should be ready for release by mid-next year.
Currently, Saif Ali Khan is busy wrapping up his other commitments that include Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D K's Happy Ending starring Ileana D'Cruz and Kalki Koechlin and Kabir Khan's Phantom, an action thriller alongside Katrina Kaif.
On the other hand, Kangna Ranaut too has her hands full with Sai Kabir's Divine Lovers opposite Irrfan Khan, Anand L.Rai's Tanu Weds Manu sequel and Nikhil Advani's urban love story Katti Batti with Imran Khan.
