Varun Dhawan was to play Harshad Mehta for Paresh Rawal’s production, it finally became the web show Scam 1992 : Trending News in India Trending News in India

1990s superstar-scamster Harshad Mehta is now once again a household name, thanks to Hansal Mehta’s series. And to think Varun Dhawan was all set to play Harshad Mehta in a film to be produced by Paresh Rawal! Reliable sources say, Varun was all but locked in to play Harshad Mehta by Paresh. But the script for the bio-pic was stuck. They finally had to scrap the idea.

This is when Sameer Nair and Applause Entertainment stepped in and acquired the rights to make a web series on Harshad Mehta. An unknown Gujarati actor was roped in to play Harshad Mehta. Pratik Gandhi is now a household name.

Says Hansal Mehta, “I’m aware that Harshad Mehta’s story has had long journey to the screen. Hota hai. Every story has its own destiny. I had to face a lot of resistance while casting Pratik Gandhi. Many big names were suggested. But I wanted Pratik. Then I was advised to do some padding in the casting. But I refused to cast known faces even in supporting roles. I now feel one of the reasons why Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story worked so well was the relatively unknown faces on screen. They all looked like the characters they were playing.”

The show has received a remarkable response from audiences for its gripping performances from Pratik Gandhi and Shreya Dhanwanthary, stellar direction by Hansal Mehta and an exceptional script from Sumit Purohit, Saurav Dey, Vaibhav Vishal and Karan Vyas.

“Very much in the country,” says Arjun Rampal busting fake news of him leaving the country after NCB summons : Trending News in India Trending News in India

Over a week ago actor Arjun Rampal was summoned by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB ) for the second time. After he was issued a summon, he requested the agency to grant him a week’s time before he appears before the officers. While seeking for some extra time, the actor cited personal reasons.

Recently there were reports doing the rounds that suggested that Rampal had left the country after seeking for extra time. On Saturday, he took to his Twitter handle to clarify that he is very much in the country and is busy with his professional commitments. “Very much in the country, in fact just doing promotions for #nailpolish I guess some news channels have become travel agents.. lol #FakeNews,” he wrote.

Arjun Rampal was first summoned by the NCB in November after they conducted a raid at his place. Although a few drugs were recovered from his place, they had a proper prescription in place for the same and he was given a clean chit for them.

Rampal was questioned by the agency for seven hours on November 13. He was interrogated after his Australian friend Paul Bartel was arrested in a drug-related case. Reportedly, Bartel was in contact with Arjun Rampal’s partner Gabriella Demetriades brother Agisialos Demetriades. Meanwhile, Agisialos who was arrested in October was granted bail on Tuesday by a special narcotics court.

Scoop: Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone drop in on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi set to celebrate 5 years of Bajirao Mastani : Trending News in India Trending News in India

On the night of December 18, Sanjay Leela Bhansali had surprise visitors. Bollywood’s most adored couple Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone dropped unannounced to celebrate five years of Bajirao Mastani.


For those who came in late, Bajirao Mastani was a turning point for both Deepika and Ranveer. Their careers went to another level after this film. Hence, it was no surprise that they remembered their Bajirao Mastani director on the day when the blockbuster historical
celebrated five years since release.

Says an eyewitness, “Sanjay had no idea that they were going to show up. In fact, he was so busy shooting Gangubai Kathiawadi that when they did show up one set at Film City. He was completety taken aback. Sanjay met Ranveer and Deepika for the first time since the lockdown. They met warmly, though no hugs. Just smiles.”

A cake was brought on the set to celebrate the occasion. Ranveer ans Deepika were in their element. They spent a good hour on the set with their favourite director (with whom they have done three films) before waving a reluctant goodbye.
