Tiger Shroff was spotted shooting for Sajid Nadiadwala’s “Baaghi” at Mumbai’s Mehboob Studio. Producer Sajid Nadiadwala hired 50 security guards to protect the look of Shroff in the film by not allowing any paparazzi on the sets of the film. However, we have a query: if Shroff’s look is so well-‘guarded,’ what about the video he is set to do for T-Series?
Nandana Sen on Innsbruck International Film Festival Jury
Earlier this year, Nandana Sen represented India on the jury of the Pune Film Festival. Sen is now in Austria, serving on the World Feature Film Jury of the Innsbruck International Film Festival, the largest festival in the region. Election to film juries is not new to Sen, who has previously served on prestigious juries, such as the Roma Fiction Fest and Abu Dhabi International Film Festival. Coincidentally, the only Indian film to be selected by Innsbruck is Ketan Mehta’s recently released “Rang Rasiya,” which stars Sen. We wonder how Sen became a jury member when her film is being shown!
Sen, meanwhile, is also a passionate child-rights activist who has often served on an entirely different kind of jury aimed at justice for children — the Official Jury at Public Hearings, held by the National Commission for the Protection of Child Rights.

Unique Initiative for ‘Ship of Theseus’
Actor Sohum Shah, who won acclaim for his role as a young stockbroker in the film “Ship of Theseus,” is excited about a new initiative for the movie.

Farhan Akhtar Picks Up Gun for First Time in ‘Wazir’
For the first time, Farhan Akhtar plays the role of an ATS cop in Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s “Wazir.” And for the first time, he will be seen holding a gun, despite having written, directed and co-produced action films like “Lakshya” and the “Don” franchise.
The actor had to be trained to hold the gun and needed to get the body language right. His look has also created a stir, and even Chopra was stunned to realize that he was holding a gun for the first time.
“He’s so good it doesn’t look that way at all!” said Chopra.
‘Housefull 3’-IPL Tie-Up
The release date of the film was announced almost six months ago, so “Housefull 3” will be coming soon after the IPL cricket season in 2016. Producer Sajid Nadiadwala is planning a huge tie-up with the IPL final of 2016 for his film, and the team will be extensively promoting it there.
Although a lot of films are being promoted at the IPL, this is the first time ever a film has tied up with the IPL a year in advance. Part of the reason for this is that “Housefull 2” was a bumper hit despite its release during the 2012 IPL.
“Housefull 3” stars Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh and Abhishek Bachchan. It was released Jun. 3.
