Thank you Riteish for ‘Thank God Bappa’, a strong message conveyed in an entertaining way

Days before Ganpati comes knocking on our doors, Riteish Deshmukh and his team has come up with a super awesome video titled “Thank God Bappa”. The video features the actor with guess who, Ganpati Bappa himself. 

Riteish posted the video on microblogging website Twitter and posted: Proudly presenting #ThankGodBappa @geneliad @starpravah @mfc

Produced by Genelia Deshmukh, the video has been directed by Kapil Sawant. The video features Riteish mouthing the words in Marathi. 

In the video, he says Bappa visits us every year and though we humans cheat on him every time, yet he smiles us at so cutely. Thank god Bappa is not like us, had he been like us he would said “nothing happens in 21 modaks these days” or if someone living in Andheri visits Ganpati of Lalbaug, Bappa will say “This falls under Andheri jurisdiction, please contact the Bappa in Andheri”. But instead he blesses everyone equally. 

Imagine Bappa giving us blessings in packages, like Ganpati & Shankar blessing combo in just Rs. 20000, or avail discount on group offerings. But he is not like us and doesn’t trade his blessings. 

A day after the immersion the sight is awful – the feet to which once people bowed at is lying somewhere, the hand which once blessed people is in another corner, the Bappa who once brought everyone together is now lying here and there in pieces. But he still visits us again with his cute smile. 

The message he wants to convey is that had Bappa been like us he would have stopped visiting us with the kind of treatment we give him after visarjan (immersion). But he still visits us every year with his cute smile. Bappa is not like us, all he wants is our happiness and thus he keeps visiting us. 

Thank god Bappa is not like us.

Arijit Singh’s rendition of ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ will touch your soul

After releasing the posters and first teaser of his much-awaited movie “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”, filmmaker Karan Johar also released the title track of the film on his Twitter handle today. 

He tweeted: The audio of the title track 

The song has been crooned by Arijit Singh, and who doesn’t love him. The man’s voice goes deep inside your heart, and touches ones soul. The music has been composed by Pritam with lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya. 

The song is a complete package – soothing music, heart-touching lyrics and the soulful voice of Arijit Singh. It is neither a complete love song, nor a heartbreak song, but it sure has the magic to make you want to hear it over and over again. 

It is picturised on the leading man of the movie Ranbir Kapoor. The teaser that released today starts with Ranbir singing the song. In fact the song is playing throughout the teaser. 

“Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” also features Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Fawad Khan. It will hit the screens during Diwali. 

Celebs go gaga over ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ teaser

After revealing three posters of his most ambitious project “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”, filmmaker Karan Johar released the first teaser of the movie on Twitter today. He took to the microblogging website and posted: One sided love…deep friendship and heartbreak….#AeDilHaiMushkil #ADHMTeaser. 

The teaser has become the talk-of-the-town with celebrities going gaga over it. While some can’t get the title track out of their head, some are in praise of the filmmaker. Here’s what they tweeted:

Ranbir Kapoor is back baby, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ teaser out

Karan Johar has made it really mushkil for me to write about the first teaser of his forthcoming movie “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’. How can I put something in words when it has directly touched my heart. But I’ll still try. 

The filmmaker posted the teaser on Twitter and wrote: One sided love…deep friendship and heartbreak….#AeDilHaiMushkil #ADHMTeaser

First thing first, I am a big Arijit Singh fan and to start the teaser with his song means you are already a winner for me. Plus the lyrics is so deep “Tu safar mera, tu hi meri manzil, tere bina guzara, ae dil hai mushkil.”

And then there is the intense looking Ranbir Kapoor. This is the first time after “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” that I was awestruck by him. The rockstar Ranbir is definitely back, the one we have all been waiting for. Those mesmerising eyes keep you hooked and you will just want to stare at them. 

The movie also features – Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anushka Sharma and Fawad Khan. It has everything that a KJo movie has picturesque views, high fashion clothes and the two most glamorous actresses of today’s time. 

The one and a half minute teaser shows Ranbir with both Aishwarya and Anushka. While he seems more mature and serious with Aishwarya, with Anushka it looks like a joy-ride. It also gives us a glimpse of Fawad. 

Not much is revealed from the teaser, but it seems this movie is a roller-coaster ride of the matters of heart, something which Karan masters at.

“Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” will hit the screens during Diwali. 

Gene ‘Willy Wonka’ Wilder dies at 83

Gene Wilder, the man who took us on a tour to the chocolate factory, died at the age of 83. The actor breathed his last at his home in Stamford, Connecticut. 

He died of complications from Alzheimer’s disease with which he was suffering for the last three years. His nephew Jordan Walker-Pearlman said in a statement that the comedian kept his illness private because he did not want to disappoint young children who would smile or call out to him “there’s Willy Wonka” by exposing them to the problems of an adult. 

His best work includes “Bonnie & Clyde (1967), “The Producers” (1967), “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” (1971), “Blazing Saddles” (1974) and “Young Frankenstein” (1974).

And this one is hawwt… ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ third poster out

It seems the makers of forthcoming movie “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” are being too generous today. After releasing two new posters of the movie, they now end the night with the third and last look. 

Karan Johar posted the poster on Twitter and wrote: love passion and intense friendship engulfed in our emotional journey @AeDilHaiMushkil #ADHMTeaserTomorrow at 10am

This poster features the three lead stars – Ranbir Kapoor, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Anushka Sharma. While Ranbir and Aishwarya are engaged in a passionate moment, Anushka looks stunning. There are two more things I noticed in the poster – “Love” written backwards and Ranbir holding a mic and singing. 

“Love” written backwards might mean the meaning of the word is lost as he gets involved with two women. It seems Ranbir will don the character of a rockstar once again and that’s why he is holding the mic. So he makes his way to a woman’s heart with this talent. Well, to know more we will have to wait for the teaser which releases tomorrow. 

“Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” is scheduled for a Diwali release and it also features Fawad Khan in a special role.
