A lot has happened in this week. Where on one side we had 2018’s biggest release Sanju setting off on a record breaking spree, the other side was equally heartbreaking with the news of Sonali Bendre being diagnosed with cancer. The actress is said to be in her fourth stage. So without wasting a minute, let’s take you down the week gone by, one news at a time…
Rs 202 crore within a week – now that’s how massively Sanju is winning over the box office. The Ranbir Kapoor starrer is getting immense praises from critics and audience alike. People are loving Ranbir’s par excellence act as Sanjay Dutt. Say for that matter, even Vicky Kaushal is getting phenomenal response for his performance as Kamli. If this is the kind of appreciation that is going to continue coming Sanju’s way then there is no stopping for it to cross the Rs 300 crore mark in the next week. Anyway there is no big release coming up in the next few days. ALSO READ: Will Sanju’s phenomenal success help Sanjay Dutt’s upcoming films at the box office? Expert speaks
The most heartbreaking news came with Sonali Bendre being diagnosed with cancer. The actress, who is currently undergoing treatment in New York, issued a statement saying, “Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with a high grade cancer that has metastised, which we frankly did not see coming. A niggling pain led to some tests, which led to this unexpected diagnosis. My family and close friends have rallied around me, providing the best support system that anyone can ask for. I am very blessed and thankful for each of them.” We hope she survives this life-threatening battle and comes back victorious. Check out her full post below:
Sometimes, when you least expect it, life throws you a curveball. I have recently been diagnosed with a high grade cancer that has metastised, which we frankly did not see coming. A niggling pain led to some tests, which led to this unexpected diagnosis. My family and close friends have rallied around me, providing the best support system that anyone can ask for. I am very blessed and thankful for each of them. There is no better way to tackle this, than to take swift and immediate action. And so, as advised by my doctors, I am currently undergoing a course of treatment in New York. We remain optimistic and I am determined to fight every step of the way. What has helped has been the immense outpouring of love and support I’ve received over the past few days, for which I am very grateful. I’m taking this battle head on, knowing I have the strength of my family and friends behind me.

A new week called for a fresh batch of pictures of who else than the hottest couple in town – Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas. The two went cycling and shopping on the streets of NYC the other day and boy, their snaps are always such a delight. Twinning in white and letting the world know how happy they are in each other’s company, PC and Nick seem to be enjoying every bit of this new phase of life. You can check out the picture below
But just in case you didn’t know, right after this cycling day, Priyanka flew down to Mumbai for the shoot of her comeback film Bharat with Salman Khan.So don’t be surprised if you don’t get to see pictures of Priyanka and Nick together in the next few days because the two are currently miles apart…
Fanney Khan trailer looks like one super crowd puller. Anil Kapoor plays a taxi driver who moonlights as his small dingy housing society’s best singer. His daughter pines to be a popular singer and the only two things coming her way are – society’s outlook towards overweight folks and lack of any funding because she is from a middle-class background. But unlike Secret Superstar, her father would go to extreme lengths to ensure that she lives her dream. The trailer wraps up the emotional premise very well in the two and a half minutes footage. To fulfill his daughter’s dream, Anil kidnaps Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, playing a popular singer, in hopes of extorting money. But anyone hoping to see the chemistry we saw in Humaara Dil Aapke Paas Hai, will be disappointed as the two actors share no romantic connection in this one. You can watch the Fanney Khan trailer below:
And finally, the week got it’s climax with the first song from Gold, Naino Ne Baandhi and it’s pretty impressive. We get to see a beautiful chemistry between Akshay Kumar and debutante Mouni Roy. Fans of the TV actress who have been waiting for years to see her on the big screen have nothing to complain here. The song gives her enough screen time to shine. The number has been composed by Arko and crooned by Yasser Desai, who does a great job at bringing a smooth vibe to the romantic track. You can watch the song below:
That was all from this week. Stay tuned to BollywoodLife for more updates.
