Neha Dhupia marries Angad Bedi, shares adorable pic on Twitter

Filmmaker Karan Johar took to Twitter and wished the couple.

New Delhi: After Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja’s star-studded wedding, the latest one to join the marriage bandwagon happens to be Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi. The actress announced her wedding on Twitter and shared adorable pictures addressing Angad as ‘best friend’.

She wrote: “Best decision of my life.. today, I married my best friend. Hello there, husband! @Imangadbedi.”

The dashing hubby tweeted back with an equally cutesy picture and caption.

Neha and Angad’s wedding news has come as a pleasant surprise to the fans. A few days back buzz about them being a couple was doing the rounds but the duo never really talked about it in public. They had a Sikh wedding and the Anand Karaj ceremony took place in a Gurudwara. The duo kept it a hush-hush affair and they succeeded in keeping it totally under the wraps.
Filmmaker Karan Johar took to Twitter and wished the couple. He wrote: ” My darling and most special friend @NehaDhupia who l love and adore dearly is married to the gentleman and talented @Imangadbedi !! Here’s wishing them decades of unconditional love!!!!”

One the work front, Angad was last seen in Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif starrer ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’. He played a pivotal part in the action drama. Meanwhile, Neha’s hit talk show ‘Vogue With BFFs’ was the talk of the town.
Looks like after Virushka, Sonam-Angad and now Neha-Angad, the list is going to have some more big names added this year.
The Bollywood stunner is currently seen hosting reality show ‘Roadies’ on MTV.

Tiger Zinda Hai Movie Review: Salman Khan Pulls Off Another Salman Khan-Genre Film

Director: Ali Abbas Zafar
Cast: Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Angad Bedi, Kumud Mishra, Sajjad Delafrooz and Paresh Rawal


Ali Abbas Zafar’s Tiger Zinda Hai is an out and out Salman Khan-film and tailor-made for his loyal fan base who wouldn’t miss the film for the world. But that also is the saddest part of the film in that we’ve reduced an actor to just being a ‘superstar’.

A sequel to 2012’s Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai picks up from where the first film left off. Somewhere in Austria, Tiger (Salman Khan) is now a married man living with wife Zoya (Katrina Kaif) and son Junior. Both stars reprise their roles as spy agents for RAW and ISI respectively and when 40 nurses (25 Indian and 15 Pakistani) are taken hostage in Iraq by religious extremist group ISIL, Chief Shenoy (Girish Karnad) hunts Tiger down and assigns him the job of rescuing Indian nurses. Upon a little convincing by Zoya, Tiger sets out on the mission and forms his special team, comprising of actors Angad Bedi, Paresh Pahuja and Kumud Mishra. Events unfold and Zoya and her team join in and the rescue mission is now a joint venture between RAW and ISI. How the teams unite and devise several strategies to free the nurses make up the basic plot of the film.


It’s a fact that Salman Khan’s loyal fan base doesn’t necessarily look at a film plot or its lack thereof but buy the ticket to see their hero pulling off some unbelievable stunts and delivering some whistle-worthy dialogues. And Zafar, who has previously helmed Sultan, co-starring Salman and Anushka, knows the audience quite well and serves them just what they’ll like- a savior in the face of Salman bhai. The entire film is an out and out Salman-film wherein he does all that he wishes to and all that was possible in the hands of filmmakers and yet remains unharmed. He does what he does the best and like his fans would say, Salman is in his element throughout. What his element is, however, remains a separate topic of debate.

The initial scenes wherein Salman and Katrina share the frame are warm and family-like. But Katrina, who opts for a rather straight face throughout the film, barring one or two scenes, only shines when she throws a punch or perhaps in the song Dil Diyan Galan wherein she looks gorgeous. That’s all. As an ISI agent set out on a mission, one’d have expected a lot more screen time for Zoya but alas.


The supporting cast, too, holds their own in whatever little screen time and dialogues they get alongside Salman. Iranian actor Sajjad Delafrooz, who plays ISC Commissioner Abu Usman, does a fine job but his fluency in both English and Hindi, turns out a little disturbing for the character. While Paresh Rawal as Firdaus is a delight and evokes chuckles every time he’s on screen.

Much that makes Tiger Zinda Hai a far from unbearable watch includes its technical finesse. The film, which isn’t bad per se, rides high on high-octane action sequences and there’s plenty of them. While some of which are amusing, some are too far-fetched. Right in the first half, Tiger battles a pack of wolves, rides a horse, jumps terraces and begins to take on ISIS alone until of course, Zoya joins. But having said that, the well-tuned combination of chase sequences and the background score make the action impactful. The technical finesse of camerawork, cinematography and the entire post-production rounds it up to a visual delight and makes it difficult for you to take eyes off the screen.

Over the years, Salman has established himself as a super-star who fans only expect a certain kind of entertainment from and Zafar has categorically cashed in on Salman’s heroic figure- both onscreen and offscreen- and in a way, reduced the real-life incident of 46 nurses taken hostage in Iraq to a hero-worship story with strong bits of patriotism and Indo-Pak ties thrown. As a spy thriller set in the world of espionage, cinegoers might have felt better with more thrills and less of Salman’s heroic presence but nevertheless, the film might give them the potboiler entertainment they’ve been searching for in the year that saw the likes of Shah Rukh Khan’s Jab Harry Met Sejal and Salman Khan’s Tubelight come crashing down at the box office.

Pink Movie Review


CAST: Amitabh Bachchan, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Andrea Tariang, Angad Bedi
DIRECTION: Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury
GENRE: Thriller
DURATION: 2 hours 16 minutes


STORY: Three Delhi girls – Minal (Taapsee), Falak (Kirti) and Andrea (Andrea) – are on the run after one of them escapes a molestation attempt by a pig-headed, powerful guy, Rajveer (Angad). Minal attacks Rajveer with a bottle injuring him grievously. This is just the beginning of their nightmare!

REVIEW: Pink is a powerful statement on the existing feudal mindset of a majority of India, where men and women are judged by a different yardstick. And if the man happens to be from a powerful family, then the fight for justice is even more skewed.

As it happens here, Minal, Falak and Andrea, three middle-class normal working girls, are just out for a regular night of fun. Post a rock concert they accept a dinner invitation from Rajveer and two others to a resort in Surajkund. Unfortunately the evening takes an ugly turn for them after a couple of drinks. Andrea finds herself being touched inappropriately by Dumpy (Raashul Tandon) and Rajveer forces himself onto Minal, despite her clearly saying ‘No’ to his advances. In self-defense she picks up a bottle and smashes it on his eye, leaving him bleeding. The girls return to their home hoping the night will just fade away. But their lives are turned into a living hell by the guys who malign and intimidate them in every way possible. The ultimate blow comes when Rajveer uses his powerful connections to file a wrong FIR against the girls labelling them prostitutes.

When the matter comes up in court with defense lawyer Deepak Sehgall (Amitabh), who has a bipolar disorder, representing the girls, the film takes a dramatic turn. The court-room sequence, which is inspired by Jonathan Kaplan’s The Accused (1988), where the accused Minal is asked scathing questions on her virginity and drinking habits lays bare the double standards of the society we live in. Pink questions the society’s mindset where we think girls with short hemlines and those who enjoy a drink with men are low on morals. It also tells you that whether a woman is a sex-worker, wife or slave, if she says ‘no’ to being touched, then no man has the right to force himself on her. Or outrage her modesty.

The performances are pitch-perfect with Bachchan leading the way. Creative producer, Shoojit Sircar, who directed (Vicky Donor, Madras Cafe, Piku) makes another valuable addition to his repetoire.

Ungli collections: Dismal first Friday at the Box Office


Ungli, which hit the theatres yesterday (November 28), has reportedly collected a not-so-impressive amount of money. The Box Office collections for the Emraan Hashmi-starrer is quite disappointing, at about Rs.3.6 crores, according to a website. Milap Milan Zaveri, who has penned the dialogues for Ungli, spoke to us, confirming the figures.

The film, which stars an ensemble cast, opened to largely mixed reviews from critics. Apart from Hashmi, Randeep Hooda, Sanjau Dutt, Angad Bedi, Neha Dhupia, Kangana Ranaut play pivotal roles in this Rensil D’Silva creation.The first Friday Box Office reports, though predict a somewhat gloomy run at the screens, the footfall is expected to increase during the weekend. The film deals with how a gang of commoners tackle the rampant issue of corruption on the streets of Mumbai.
