Bhaag Milkha will finally be released in Pakistan on August 23

The Pakistan Censor Board which initially banned the release of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s biopic, has now agreed to release the inspirational flick next month

Though the Farhan Akhtar starrer is minting good money at the Indian box office and overseas, the biopic was banned from being released in Pakistan after the trailer of the film showed the lead character refusing to move to Pakistan to participate in the race. The dialogue – ‘Mujhse nahin hoga, main Pakistan nahin jaunga’ was considered as the main reason for disallowing the film’s release.

After a lot of debate – ranging from whether a biopic on an Indian athlete would do well in Pakistan to lesser number of shows in the holy month of Ramadan – Geo Films has now decided to release BMB that has been doing well in India and across the globe. Rehmat Fazli, CEO of Geo Films believes that the audience in Pakistan has become mature and deserves to watch quality films on bigger screens instead of their homes.

“The film’s release was mostly halted due to the holy month of Ramadan where the number of shows in Pakistani cinemas is less than usual,” informs Rehmat Fazli. “But after Eid, the movie will be released all over the country and the cinema loving audience would get a chance to watch the movie on the large screen instead of on pirated print. They prefer a late release to a no-release and that’s why we are confident that the movie will do well,” adds Fazli.

Deepika Padukone to play Shahrukh Khan’s leading lady in Happy New Year

After a lot of speculation as to who will star opposite the Baadshah in his next home production, we are glad that we will get to see SRK and Deepika together on screen again soon. First it was Jennifer Winget Grover of Saraswatichandra fame and then it was Sushant Singh Rajput’s girlfriend Ankita Lokhande who were rumoured to play SRK’s leading lady, as Farah was looking for a fresh face.

Later, it was Katrina Kaif whom Shahrukh was rooting for, especially after their movie Jab Tak Hai Jaan did well.

Deepika has been finalised now. She debuted in SRK’s production Om Shanti Om that was directed by Farah. So she is Farah’s baby, so to speak.

Happy New Year is to go on floors in September 2014. The film also stars Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Vivaan Shah and reportedly Prithviraj who was last seen opposite Rani Mukerji in Aiyya and also in a supporting role in Aurangzeb.

Homemade food keeps Kareena Kapoor healthy

Bollywood actresses Kareena Kapoor says rather than surviving on salads and juices, she eats simple Indian food to stay fit and healthy.

"I eat only simple Indian home food sabzi, roti, dal, chawal, ghee. There are so many benefits of having ghee. My grandmother is 84 and she is still fit and looks beautiful," Kareena told reporters at an event.

"One should eat everything especially healthy and not junk food. I don't like the idea of starving. I would eat and burn it out in gym. The amount of intake is what matters," she said.

Kareena, who was size zero five years back, begins her day with a banana milk shake followed by a cup of coffee.

"I don't know where this term of size zero came from, people called it that way (size zero). I became thin for 'Tashan'. And that is because of Rujuta, I followed her instructions," she said.

The 32-year-old actor is a part of a nutrition documentary DVD film 'Indian Food Wisdom and The Art of Eating Right', by famous celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar.

Kareena reveals that she is a vegetarian. Her husband actor Saif Ali Khan, who is also part of this DVD, likes to eat meat but rarely.

"Nawabi food is rich in meat so I opt for dal or paneer while Saif eats mutton. I don't eat meat," she adds.

Kareena feels older female actors like Madhubala and others were beautiful because they ate simple food.
