|Ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif, Ranbir Kapoor|
Katrina Kaif has been confirmed to play the lead role in Raajneeti 2. The actress is told to be the hero in the movie. Ranbir Kapoor, who was a part of Raajneeti, will not be seen in the movie this time.
A super hit 2010, Prakash Jha movie, the filmmaker tells, “It is very challenging to take the Raajneeti story forward. Most of the main characters are dead. Two-thirds of the characters will be completely new. Katrina (Kaif) will have an essential role.”
However, the Ranbir-Katrina chemistry will be missing in the second part. The movie is said to take a complete spin on the Mahabharat this time.
Reason why Ranbir is not a part of the sequel is because he doesn’t want to be sidelined by his so-called ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif.
Riteish Deshmukh, who has an outstanding timing for comedy and who has been seen in comedy films mostly, now says that he need to move on to the next level and that’s crime thrillers.
The actor will soon be seen in the sequel to Masti, opposite the original cast Vivek Oberoi and Aftab Shivdasani and will soon go on the floors. He says, it’s high time he stops doing sequels and concentrate on dramas and thrillers.
“My next film will be ‘Masti 2′. I will start shooting in the first week of August,” Riteish Deshmukh told.
“It is myself, Aftab and Vivek in the film. It’s my fourth film with Indra Kumar I feel like I am married to him,” Riteish, told.
“It is myself, Aftab and Vivek in the film. It’s my fourth film with Indra Kumar I feel like I am married to him,” Riteish, told.
“This is my third sequel and then the fourth one will come, then I will stop doing sequels because all the comedies that I am doing are sequels – Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum (a sequel to ‘Kyaa Kool Hai Hum’) and ‘Masti 2′. I have not done a new comedy.”
“In fact, in my case, it has been the other way round. ‘Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya’ happened and it was a rom com where Genelia (D’Souza) is more aggressive character. Thankfully, it worked.”
“Obviously these series of films that I am doing are sequels, they are brands and they are bound to be comedy. After these films things have changed because people’s perception has changed so now I am looking forward to do one drama and one crime thriller.”
Riteish’s next film is “Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum”.

Amitabh Bachchan was super awed by Gangs of Wasseypur which released last Friday. Ever since the actor watched the movie, his blog has been flooding with its reviews and strongly recommends the film to each and everyone.
On Friday, the film ran houseful in most parts.
“Quite undoubtedly the moment of the day has been the film ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ (GOW), which I have had the great privilege to see. Indian Cinema at its best, honest, stark and as painfully real as possible. For one that has been born and lived a major portion of his life in almost similar environment, or at least exposed to it to some degree, I found so much that I could well relate to. And that has led to the authenticity…,” Big B posted on his blog.
“Anurag Kashyap has not done any fancy shot taking and allowed the visuals to flow as they would, were one to be living those circumstances in real time,” he posted.
The movie has stellar performances by Manoj Bajpayee, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Richa Chadha and Piyush Mishra.
Praising Manoj Bajpayee, the 69-year-old posted, “Manoj Bajpayee in particular, and of all the artists right down to the smallest in capacity and presence, has been beautifully done. No one looked or performed out of place. They just did enough and that was effective enough.”
“Importantly though, the film GOW touched and expanded on a topic that apart from the blood and gore and the violence educated us on a social issue which most of us may never have heard of. The disparities yes, on more social and moral levels, but also on a factor that concerns religion and the evil that exists within most of the polity even now about it. In all a glorious film and one that I would recommend strongly,” he wrote.
