Abhishek Bachchan's Double Whammy In 2013 Quietly, Abhishek Bachchan has slithered forward to a place under the sun. Rohit Shetty's Bol Bachchan got the underrated actor a renewed boxoffice endorsement. After saying no to a slew of almost-accepted offers Abhishek has finally given his nod to two major projects this year. The first of these is Farah Khan's Happy New Year which Abhishek starts shooting in in the first quarter of the year. Abhishek would be sharing the marquee in Farah's film with Shah Rukh Khan. The two were supposed to come together in Farah Khan's directorial debut Main Hoon Na. Abhishek was supposed to play the role that eventually went to Zayed Khan. Now in Happy New Year SRK and Junior AB are being cast in parallel parts. Farah would be Abhishek's second woman director after Revathi in Phir Milenge, not counting the cameo as himself in Zoya Akhtar's Luck By Chance and Farah Khan's Om Shanti Om. In the second-half of 2013 Abhishek goes into Oh My God director Umesh Shukla's film. A solo ...

Top-5 directors of 2012 Joginder Tuteja, Sujoy Ghosh [Kahaani] The kind of plot that 'Kahaani' boasted of, the elements and people involved and the usage of technology forming a good part of the narrative, Sujoy Ghosh could have easily found himself in a zone a la Sanjay Gupta or an Abbas-Mustan, what with their highly urbanised stylish and over the top story telling taking prominence over the actual plot. However he came up with a style of his own which means he merged reality with an engaging narrative in such a manner that as an audience you felt like standing next to the character and feeling her emotions instead of just being passively entertained as a viewer. Umesh Shukla [OMG - Oh My God] 'OMG - Oh My God' was a fantastic film. Even though it boasted of a complicated subject where everything from God, religion, faith and worship was challenged, Umesh Shukla never lost his way through the film's narrative. After all, a film like this was always walking a tight rope, what with more chances of a viewe ...
OH MY GOD-2, The makers of OMG!! Oh My God, one of 2012′s most successful medium budget films, are ready with a sequel! The first film was based on a Hindi play, while the sequel will have a completely new storyline. “It will be a different story altogether. It will be a story that will talk about religion and other issues. It will be a spicy film but an eye-opener. However this will be a fresh film and not a continuation from ‘Oh My God’.. We have zeroed on a script but we still have to work on that. We will finalise the things in next three to four days.” says Umesh Shukla, the director of Oh My God. Akshay Kumar will be leading it again...

Umesh Shukla-Oh My God. Biggest hit of all the non-conventional commercial films this year.
Production Producer Akshay Kumar announced the film in 2012. When the promos of the movie were released at first, people heard actor Salman Khan's voice and assumed that he was playing a role in the movie or maybe he was the narrator. Later, the director Umesh Shukla went on to clarify that Salman's voice was only being used in the promos of the movie. The director was quoted telling IANS, "He (Salman) will not be narrating in the film. He has that voice. My film is a light-hearted comedy and we need someone who can do justice to the visuals." [11] Later, it was confirmed that Kumar's close friend Paresh Rawal who appeared in the original play Kishen vs Kanhaiya was playing the lead role with Akshay himself playing the role of Krishna in the movie.[1] Shahrukh Khan was also expected to play a supporting role in the film but later opted out of the project, and the role was taken over by Mithun Chakraborty. The filming was reported to have begun in January 2012. Also, director Prabhu Deva, who earlier direc ...

Court seeks reply on plea against 'Oh My God' movie:. A Delhi's court has sought Delhi Police's response on a plea by a man who alleged that the recently-released movie " Oh My God" has hurt religious sentiments of Hindus. Metropolitan Magistrate Mayuri Singh took cognisance of the complaint and directed police officials of Nand Nagri in North East Delhi area to place their reply on November 27. "Status report be called from the police station concerned for November 27," the court said. Complainant Rajender Singh Raja, national general secretary of a social organisation Shivsena Hindustan, filed a complaint against the film's actors Paresh Rawal, Mithun Chakraborty, its director Umesh Shukla and the Central Board of Film Certification. He alleged that the film has several dialogues and scenes which are objectionable and hurt the sentiments of Hindus. The dialogues have been spoken against the gods and goddesses of Hindu religion, the petition said. "This act is illegal and irresponsible and has hurt the f ...
Akshay-Paresh movie OMG Oh My God, directed by Umesh Shukla, has done good collection at the Indian Box Office in first week. Seven days business.
saw 'Oh My God'. And, as expected, it is a fantabulous film. Being based on a play-adapted-to-a-script has given the film a great story & screenplay and brisk pace. While the play itself is good, converting it to the screen well is critical and it has been beautifully done by Umesh Shukla & the original playwright - Bhavesh Mandalia. One barely realises how time flies in the movie. Music & background score is latent but effective (well done Himesbhai - yes music is by Himesh Reshammiya - surprise surprise!!!). The superstar of this movie are the dialogues, which are really tight with pinpoint accuracy. They have also been delivered outstandingly, largely by Paresh Rawal. His performance is, needless to say, awesome, re-reminding me of what an outstanding actor he is - definitely one of the best of our times. Akshay Kumar is good, again proving that if well directed, he can deliver. Lubna Salim looks really fresh & acts well. Mahesh Manjrekar, Mithun Chakraborthy & Govind Namdeo support well. Lastly, extra ...
Umesh Shukla's film, 'OMG — Oh My God!' is a well-intentioned film but the execution could have been better. Shukla very competently succeeds in conveying the message that God has been reduced to mere symbolism in the modern world. Inspired by a Gujarati play, the plot is simple. Kanji Bhai (Paresh Rawal) is an atheist who owns an antique shop, he manages to cash in on the gullibility of blind believers to make a few extra bucks on the sale of their favourite deities. All is good till one day; the Gods decide to destroy only Kanji's antique shop after an earthquake. Even his insurance claim is rejected because of the "act of God" clause, which basically means since there was no theft, fire or fraud, there is no coverage for a victim of a quake or tsunami. When Kanji Bhai's livelihood is at stake, he decides to sue God and claim compensation either from the various Godmen (who evidently run a lucrative business) or the insurance agency. Umesh Shukla tries to avoid Bollywood clichés by completely avoidin ...

Seventh Annual Hindu Mandir Executives Conference (HMEC) - 2012 Over 350 adult and youth delegates representing over 102 Mandirs (Temples) and Hindu organizations, from across the world, attended the seventh annual Hindu Mandir Executives’ Conference (HMEC), from August 17 through 18, 2012 in San Jose, CA.

The program consisting of over 25 sessions and 100 speakers & moderators was meticulously compo ...
He's not just the 100 crore crowd puller. Where most stars would die before making a guest appearance save for an odd film of a best friend, Salman Khan's list of cameos - more than 14 - could make a separate career of their own. And not for nothing is he known as bhai, as most of his guest appearances have been favours or gestures of friendship. With a heart that's bigger than his biceps, this Khan has done guest appearances in films you wouldn't even have heard of, and has five more lined up for the coming months. Read on to know where all Sallu bhai has spread the bhaichaara... Most actors in Bollywood would probably cringe at the thought of getting a cameo role - the word reeks of a hero out of work. But Salman Khan, who is nothing if not a good friend, doesn't shy away from doing them in the name of dosti! Right now, bhai has five cameos stacked up. He's doing one for Ajay Devgn's Son Of Sardar, he's lending his voice for Umesh Shukla's Oh My God, he's doing one in Preity Zinta's Iskhq In Paris, and ...
