Aamir Khan facing problems in buying ancestral home in Banaras

Aamir Khan recently on his birthday had announced on how he wants to purchase his mother Zeenat Hussain's childhood home in Banaras. This is one of the wishes that the actor wants to accomplish for his mother. 

Sharing details on this our sources revealed, Aamir has already started the process of purchasing his ancestral house, Khwaja Manzil and has spotted the house in the city, although it doesn't seem to be an easy task as Aamir is facing several roadblocks and it feels increasingly impossible for the actor to purchase the house.

Reason being, currently the house is in some legal dispute. Also the current owners of the house haven't been cooperating which is making the task look very difficult. The house at present is being owned by 3 owners out of which 2 of them are not showing any sings of cooperation with the actors family and lawyers. 

Aamir's family and the lawyers have been regularly paying visits to the area to sort out the matter mutually and have had several meetings with the 2 members however the other owners are not in agreement due to which the entire process looks halted. 

Aamir who has seen the house has expressed his desires on buying it as it has several of his mothers childhood memories engraved at this house. The actor has also previously mentioned on how he would request the local residents to help him buy the house. 

It looks like, it isn't going to be an easy journey for Aamir to fulfill this wish of his for his mother.

Sushant & Dhoni have something in common! Find Out!

Sushant Singh Rajput, who will be seen essaying the role of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, recently met the Indian Captain, before heading out of the country. In one such discussion, they discovered a common interest - and that is, for bikes.

Both Captain Cool and Sushant, who have a huge fondness for bikes, said to have discussed how much they both struggled to buy their first bike. As everyone by now know that Dhoni was earlier a ticket collector at Kharagpur station and so it was not easy to invest in a bike, as much as he wanted to. After a lot of struggle, Dhoni bought his first bike.

On the other hand, Sushant who has also struggled to reach where he is today, invested in a second hand Honda CBR that he bought while in college with the money that he earned by giving tuitions. Current scenario is that Dhoni has the best bikes parked under his house and Sushant also has his new BMW K1300r which he loves more than his swanky car.

Confirming this Sushant added, "Yes, Dhoni is also extremely passionate about bikes, just like me. When two bike lovers start discussing bikes, be sure that it will be a long conversation which we have had many. In my college days, I started taking tuitions to be able to afford a second hand bike which I was very proud of. Even though i am very attached to my new bike, the first one will always remain very special."

Both have worked their way up and nothing came on platter for them. They struggled their way to reach where they are. Interesting and inspiring journeys we must say!

A. It's like starting out at the Everest base camp and then finally reaching the summit.

Q. How was it working with Shah Rukh Khan? Share your experience.

A. It was a FANtastic opportunity. Met him for the 1st time on the 3rd of Dec, 2014 at exactly 7.15pm for the police station scene. Need I say more. Was, Am and Will Always remain a FAN.

Q. On working for the movie 'Fan'.

A. Working on FAN was like going to University and getting my Ph.D. Maneesh was a friend who walked every step with me and Adi Chopra made sure that every need and even want was taken care of.

Q. Difference between working for small screen and big screen.

A. I obviously cannot reveal anything about RUSTOM yet, including my part. But knowing it is from the house of Neeraj Pandey, you can expect something extraordinary and brilliant. But one thing I can say for sure. We all can soon easily expect a name to shine bright. That of Tinu Suresh Desai, our director.

Q. On working with Akshay Kumar?

A. Please allow me to give this answer in Hindi. Arrey bhai, The Ultimate Khiladi se saath khel khelne ka maukamila, aur kya chahiye.

Q. Which one do you prefer - working in commercial movie or content-oriented film?

A. Actually I want to eat the cake and have it too (winks).

Q. About your dream role.

A. Any role that will let me play good, bad, and ugly all together.

Q. One actress you would love to share the screen space with??

A. Please help me here. Should I go in alphabetical order or in order of seniority ? But first I'll have to figure out if there are any actresses at all who I wouldn't want to work with.

Sushant Singh Rajput went to all extremes to get himself into the character of his next film where he essays the role of Indian Captain cool, MS Dhoni. This name is extremely popular in almost every household and so Sushant felt it was important to do good amount of home work before playing the character.

The actor also ditched the five star hotels and rather stayed with them at the railway quarters for all those days to get a deeper insight into their lifestyle and also played cricket on the same ground.

Dhoni's ex colleagues even told Sushant lots of stories of Dhoni which helped him play the part. In fact, they are yet in touch with Sushant. Shared Sushant, "Apart from undergoing hard core preparation to play cricket like Dhoni, there was a different kind of effort that went into understanding his life before he became India's Captain Cool! Three of his room mates have been of phenomenal help to me. They let me come in their work space in the trains, let me stay in the same railway quarter and also told me a lot of stories about Dhoni which helped me make my performance more nuanced. I was extremely fascinated."

Sushant Singh Rajput's portrayal of MS Dhoni in the teaser was immensely appreciated and shows the amount of dedication he put in to get into the character.

Hrithik Roshan makes grandfather emotional! And HOW?

Sources close to the actor share that he is very close to his maternal grandfather, J Om Prakash.

Hrithik knew that his nana (as the actor calls him) is very fond of this particular Mercedes. So he decided to surprise him by getting him outside his house with the car waiting for him.

Hrithik's nana was pleasantly surprised on seeing the car and instantly gave him a big hug. He was very moved by this sweet gesture of his grandson, who he is very proud of. He got teary eyed on realising how much Hrithik cares about him to fulfill his wish. And that too without any specific reason. It wasn't any special occasion to give the gift.

Looks like his nana took him for the first drive in his favourite car. It is proven that Hrithik can make you weak not just with his Greek God looks but also with gestures like these.

Hrithik is currently having 'Mohenjo Daro' and 'Kaabil' on hand....
