Here are the top 5 newsmakers of the week.
Deepika Padukone steals the week!
Prakash Padukone’s beautiful daughter surely knows how to make the right kind of headlines. Vanity Fair ranked her number two in the promising newcomers in Hollywood. Her fee for the upcoming Padmavati was also leaked, which is a cool Rs. 12.62 crores, that is the highest among the actresses in Bollywood. Way to go, girl!
Half of Bollywood support Akshay Kumar’s Rustom
With a huge box office clash happening this week between Hrithik Roshan’s Mohenjo Daro and Akshay Kumar’s Rustom, it seems the many of their colleagues have chosen to side with the latter. Salman Khan, Ranveer Singh, Sonam Kapoor, Karan Johar, Sonakshi Sinha have posted videos on their social networking sites where they supported the period crime thriller. Ranveer Singh’s Chupa Rustom act was the best, though.
Is YRF cheating Salman Khan with regards to Sultan?
It’s strange for a film like Sultan to not have crossed Rs 300 crores till now, when it had such a clear field in July and also being the fastest to reach Rs 200 crores checkpoint. Rumours have surfaced that the production house, YRF, have underplayed the figures as they do not want to give too much of their profit share to Salman Khan (which is stupid, since he is the only reason why the film is earning so much). Another set of rumours that followed is that Salman Khan has refused to work with the production company after this. If this is true, who can blame him?
