Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Pulimurugan” remake: Hrithik Roshan refutes rumors of declining the film

Famous filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has a flair for larger than life cinema, clearly displayed by his blockbuster hits like Black, Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani, Padmaavat and more. Now it seems he has taken on the challenge of remaking Pulimurugan, the highest grossing Malayalam film of all time.

Originally directed by Vysakh and starring the action star Mohanlal, the film was released in 2016 and is till date the only Malayalam film to enter the coveted 100 crores club at the box office. It is a story based on a wild life hunter who is known for killing man-eating tigers. The actor received rave reviews from audiences and critics.

The rumors claim that the filmmaker had approached Hrithik Roshan for the role played by Mohanlal in the original but the actor turned him down. This came as quite a shock to the audiences as his previous collaboration with SLB, Guzaarish, garnered him plenty of critical acclaim.

Hrithik, who usually ignores such rumors, actually responded on Twitter saying, “False journalism. Or an honest mistake. Who will ever know. stay cool tho.” Does this mean he didn’t turn down the offer or that Sanjay Leela Bhansali never approached him in the first place?

Hrithik will be next seen in Super 30 and YRF’s next alongside Tiger Shroff. As for the Pulimurugan remake, it will be interesting to see who will step into the shoes of Mohanlal in the Hindi version.

Priyanka Chopra’s special return gift for her employees on her 36th birthday is…

The former Miss World and now an international star, Priyanka Chopra just turned 36. And while the fierce feminist has received lots of wishes and gifts, she, in return, has some amazing return gifts for her female employees. According to Dr. Madhu Chopra, Priyanka’s mother and business partner, PeeCee has introduced flexible working hours for mothers along with maternity leave benefits, monetary assistance for post-pregnancy care and a crèche arrangement in order to encourage a gender-neutral working environment.

Dr. Madhu told in an interview, “Since 80 percent of our female staff is married, we had to keep their interests in mind. The idea was simple — why should women’s life choices become professional hurdles? The policy of flexible timings for mothers was set in place by Priyanka but fine-tuned by senior members of our company.

“We give 12 weeks’ maternity leave and financial assistance for care,” added Dr. Madhu who also explained that Priyanka wanted to create an environment where women feel safe and loved.

The ‘Quantico’ star is a shining example of a ‘Shero’ in this largely male-dominating industry. She has always raised her voice for gender parity and ensured that her actions and decisions should also reflect her thoughts. According to sources, Priyanka will be the first actor to share a part of the profit from her upcoming film ‘The Sky is Pink’.

Well, for those wondering, the star also gives paternity leaves.
