Ayushmann Khurrana starrer Bala faces copyright violation charges from the makers of Sunny Singh's Ujda Chaman

Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Bala's trailer was dropped on the internet on October 10th and impressed everyone. Ayushmann left us in splits as he portrayed a bald protagonist and stunned us with his comic timing. However, the trailer didn't seem to please the makers of Sunny Singh starrer Ujda Chaman as producer Abhishek Pathak filed a copyright violation against the Ayushmann starrer. The makers of Sunny Singh pitched it as the first film with a bald protagonist and released the trailer on October 1st announcing the release of the film on 8th November. The makers of Bala then preponed its release to a week before it's original release date shifting it from 14th November to 7th November which angered the latter and they went on to file three charges against Bala.

Ayushmann's Bala bears a great resemblance to Sunny Singh's Ujda Chaman. Both the films draw their inspiration from Kannada film Ordu Motteya Kathe whose official remake rights are secured with the makers of Ujda Chaman. Looks like Ayushmann Khurrana's film is in trouble.

 Check out the trailers of both the films:

Kajol, Rani Mukherjee & Karan Johar have a Kuch Kuch Hota Hai reunion at the Dussehra celebration

Kuch Kuch Hota Hai trio Rani Mukherjee, Kajol, and Karan Johar send us on a nostalgia trip as they have a small reunion at the Dussehra celebrations. The occasion brought together Bollywood's most loved trio director Karan Johar, Rani Mukherjee and Kajol 23 years after the release of their film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and the pictures are too good to be true. The two lovely actresses donned their traditional best and celebrated all the nine days of Navratri with great zeal and enthusiasm, showing love for Durga Maa, while Karan joined the festivity on the auspicious day of Dussehra. 

All three of them are seen painted in the colours of festivity with red gulaal on their forehead and cheeks and we can't stop gushing over the sight. One of the pictures shows Karan and Rani look at each other with joy as Karan holds her face in his palm and the two seem to have a big laugh. Rani is also seen bonding with Kajol as she smiles at her with happiness and love in her eyes. Karan, Kajol, and Rani pose for several group pictures too as we see them enjoying some quality time with friends and family.

Housefull 4 song Shaitan Ka Saala: Akshay Kumar aka Rajkumar Bala’s moves will leave you in splits

Akshay Kumar turns into the new age Ravana as he shakes his leg on Tony Montana's iconic track Bala in Housefull 4 song Shaitan Ka Saala. The fourth installment of the Housefull series sees Akshay don an unusual avatar and spill some madness and humour as he dances wildly to 'Bala' dedicated to his character in the film as he plays the part of Rajkumar Bala as one out of the two characters played by him in the film.

Akshay dressed in a traditional attire with bald head giving atypical expressions and it gives a glimpse of the madness that is to follow in the film releasing on October 26, giving you a big laughter session on this Diwali. Heard the song yet? Catch a glimpse here:
