During the trailer launch of Gully Boy, Ranveer said now it’s his time and feels happy about his success.

At the launch event of Gully Boy’s trailer, Ranveer Singh was his usual energetic self and entertained everyone present with his rapping. Picking up a line from the rap song Apna time ayega, a journalist asked him if he believes his time has come, considering his films were hits in 2018, while the Khan’s weren’t. He smartly utilized the opportunity of declaring himself King at the Box Office, without actually saying it himself. All he did was to ask the journalist to repeat the question! He wanted the question to be heard again by everyone. While everyone was laughing at his smart move he later replied that, ‘I am happy that my films are getting success at the Box- Office but I do not like it if anyone else’s film doesn’t work. I want everyone from the industry to do well with their films.’

In 2018, Ranveer had two huge successes – Padmaavat at the beginning of the year and Simmba right at the end. Both these films earned phenomenal numbers and the characters he played were poles apart. Now after many years there is someone else apart from the Khans who the trade can depend on to set the cash registers ringing! Ranveer was also in the news constantly, especially after his dream wedding with Deepika Padukone.

In his upcoming film Gully Boy Ranveer is playing the role of a street rapper. The look of the film is interesting and it is likely that he will surprise audiences with his performance again. Alia Bhatt is paired opposite him in the film, and Zoya Akhtar has directed it. The film is slated to release on February 14, 2019.

The Screenwriters Association has been working hard to make the industry a fair place for the writers. Taking a step towards the cause, the association has decided to formulate a plan to ensure fair remuneration for film writers. Head of Excel Entertainment, Producer Ritesh Sidhwani is the first the come on board for the same.

According to the plan, the writers will be paid looking at the scale of production and that will make the remunerations even. As per the association this will not only pay the writers well, but will also ensure good scripts coming in. Ritesh Sidhwani who is  the first one to come on board questioned why writers are underestimated in the ecosystem. “I am not a writer, but I know it is a demanding job. We already have a system in place wherein writers over the last few years have had the option of entering into a profit sharing agreement with us. An individual can decide if he/she wants a higher base fee or a lower amount and coupled with 2% shares on the profit. Fukrey writers got around Rs 70 to 80 lakhs, and they had a profit-sharing agreement with us,” said Ritesh in a statement.

Not just the pay, but SWA also looks after ensuring that the writers get their due credits. For more updates and gossip, stay tuned to CineBlitz.

Sajid Nadiadwala’s film shoot runs into trouble as workers refuse to work – deets inside

Workers refused to construct a set for Sajid Nadiadwala’s production venture until they were given an assurance that all the permissions and protection was in place!

In what seems to be a direct outcome of last week’s attack on Fixerr‘s set, workers refused to work on the sets of a Sajid Nadiadwala film till they were given assurance about the permissions for the shoot as well as the protection made available for them. Yes, a set was supposed to be constructed in Mira Road over the weekend, but the workers refused to work till they were given written assurance. The producers were given a couple of days to get everything in place and it is now all in order. The workers were given all the assurances and have now started work on the sets. However, a shoot for a Sajid Nadiadwala film that was scheduled from June 25 – 27, may be delayed. The set will not be ready, so there might be a ripple effect!


But the good part is that work has resumed. As BN Tiwari, President of the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE), told us exclusively, “A set was being constructed in Mira Road. But workers refused to work without assurance. The producers were told to submit in writing an assurance, till then no work was carried out. They had been given two to three days for this. If there is no police permission and arrangements, then workers will not work. Only when the police says shoot here, there will be no issue, then it is fine. Now, the producers submitted all the documents and assurances and the work has begun again on the set.”

Gangeshwar Srivastav, Treasurer of FWICE and General Secretary of Film Studios Setting and Allied Mazdoor Union also shed some light. He told us exclusively, “There is no safety of our workers. So we told them, till the time police permission is not there and the production house doesn’t take responsibility of the safety of our workers, we won’t work. They agreed to it, they gave us everything we wanted in writing and the matter is now resolved. Police permission is also in place. A list of workers they’ve hired has also been submitted because sometimes they might say that this person was not working for us.”


We heard the film in question was Housefull 4. So we contacted Sajid Nadiadwala’s team to know if a set for Housefull 4 was being constructed in Mira Road? They denied it! But when asked if any other Sajid Nadiadwala film set is being constructed in that area, there was no response.

What do you think about this development? Will the Sajid Nadiadwala film shoot get delayed? Share with us your thoughts in the comments section below! Also stay tuned to CineBlitz as we get you all the exclusive news, updates and gossip right here.
