Happy Birthday Emraan Hashmi

It calls for a gaiety celebration for actor Emraan Hashmi who turns 36 today. The dashing hunk of Bollywood is the heartthrob of many, and we are sure that each one of his fans is digging the internet for news around his birthday.

With a stream of successful movies and a set of action-packed performances, Hashmi is one of those few actors who has proved his worth with time and has emerged as a go-to actor for challenging roles. We know him for many remarkable roles, but the one as Nikhil Abhyankar in the recently released ‘Ungli’ was commendable. His role is that of a cop who thinks like a criminal, and this is where lies the catch! He joins the Ungli gang, a group of four friends, to expose corrupt officials in their run to cleanse the system.

Beyond doubt, the audience could relate to his acting, and hence, appreciated his performance a lot.

Dharma Productions wishes the actor a fantastic birthday. May luck favor him in all his future endeavors!

Relationships beyond Love

One of the blessings we cherish in life, is about having those relationships that add meaning to our lives. Those relationships that go beyond the conventional definition of love.

We treat people as friends. Sometimes it is beyond just friendship when we fall in love with them, and then there is a special kind of relationship that is more than friends and less than a sizzling love chemistry. It takes years to build such relationships that thrive on mutual support and understanding, and after a certain point emerge as life support systems. They are there for you, no matter what and when. Isn’t that comforting to know?

One such classic example is the relationship between Rahul (Imran Khan) and Riana (Kareena Kapoor) from ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’. Rahul and Riana meet at a psychologist’s office and their story kicks off from the clinic taking a pause at their drunk-wedding at Las Vegas moving on to something more substantial. What follows is the tu-tu main-main found in the nascent stages of what you can call a lifetime relation between the two.

Having annulled the marriage, Rahul and Riana decide to move on with their lives but it is not as easy for Rahul as he is already falling in love with Riana. He is heartbroken to know she doesn’t feel the same way for him, but both nonetheless, decide to remain friends for a lifetime. Now, that is what is called a relationship beyond love. A promise made from the heart, to belong with each other forever.

So here’s to all such relationships that make life worthwhile. Do you have such a friend?

Colours of Dharma – Friendship

Friends are like rainbows, always there to cheer you up after a storm. Dharma Productions has witnessed quite a few rainbows sparkle along with all the thunder and rain waterworks. Here are 5 types of friendships our Dharma characters shared on screen...

1. The “I love you so much I’d do anything for you...” buddy
The camaraderie Kunal and Sameer shared in the film Dostana is testament to the kind of bromance only these two are capable of!

2. The Wingman
Aman sharing lessons in love with Rohit is simply the nicest thing anyone would do for a friend. They grew so close, that even Kanta ben began to doubt if they were... err... more than friends! When was the last time you were a wingman for your buddy?

3. The Masti wale buddies
We all agree that college is no fun without your besties. And who better to know this than Poo herself? We see her marching around with her little entourage and having a ball of a time in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham... Honestly, can you imagine sitting through boring lectures without your gang around to do some masti with?

4. The One in a Million friend!
Rahul and Riana in Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, share a special kind of friendship. A friendship that is too precious to let go no matter what the odds. On the plus side, you can always get a free haircut when you have a super stylist friend like Riana! 

5. The BFF for life!
We all have had our share of cheating at games when we were kids, no? And most of us may have surely learnt a thing or two from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. Rahul and Anjali ushered in a new era of friendship when they played a game of Basketball in their own quirky style. By that we mean, Rahul cheating at the game and Anjali yelling “Rahul is a cheater!”

If there’s one thing we can take away from Dharma films, it’s got to be the fact that friends are awesome! They are always around to support you, love you and cheer you up when you’re down. If you know a friend that fits the description of any of the above, do share the joy and tag them in the comments section! Here’s to friendship, cheers!

Happy Birthday Alia Bhatt

It is time to blow the birthday candles as the darling Alia Bhatt celebrates her birthday today. The bubbly, cute and versatile actress has become a fan favorite with her spirited performances.

In her very first film, SOTY, which turned out to be a blockbuster, she showed promise of becoming a star. In her next Dharma film, “2 States” she established herself as an actor of great dramatic caliber. In her third film, “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya” she showed a comic side which wowed audiences everywhere.

But, before all the stardom came the hard work and perseverance. It is this “zest” as Karan Johar likes to put it, that saw her bagging the lead role for SOTY. Manish Malhotra who was the costume designer for the movie also hails Alia for being stylish and found it great to dress her up. So much so, that in his own words they “just went on and on with the clothes…”.

With the hits piling up one by one, we can only hope that she keeps entertaining us for a long time. But, till we see her again on the silver screen, here’s a collection of songs from Alia’s movies -  and a video of the adorable fashionista for the fans to enjoy.

Once again, Dharma Productions wishes her a very happy birthday and much happiness in life.

Showing this Friday – Kal Ho Naa Ho

Blissful times are back. The week’s, finally, come to an end. Planning for the weekend is what occupies your mind most. A beach night may probably be top on your mind or just a long drive to kill the stress. In any case, you deserve a much relaxed evening and well, we may have an awesome plan for you.

While most of us like to spend Fridays grooving to blasting music, few of us like to spend it in the quiet of our houses in front of the TV watching our favorite stars perform to our heart’s content.

One such movie is Kal Ho Naa Ho. The ultimate entertainer perfect for a relaxed evening. It’s the cute sweet story of Aman (SRK), Naina (Preity Zinta) and Rohit (Saif Ali Khan). How they grow into their characters, discover love, and the zeal to live life, is the essence of the love-drama.

The movie is emotionally brilliant, packed with light and sweet moments that will leave you asking for more. And well, what’s a story without a moving love-triangle! The remake of the old classic favorite ‘Anand’ is every reason why you would want to spend your Friday watching Kal Ho Naa Ho with your loved one.

If you haven’t already watched it, grab a tub of popcorn, a wad of tissues and enjoy the movie snuggling closer to your partner.

Happy Birthday Nimrat Kaur

A very happy birthday to the young and charming Nimrat Kaur who turns 32 today. Known for her brilliant performance in Dharma Productions’ ‘Lunchbox’, Nimrat has slowly made it to stardom with her uncanny acting skills and a pleasing personality.

Having acted in a plethora of short films and TV advertisements, the actor believes ‘When there is so much to be thankful for, what’s there to complain about’?

The Delhi girl is everything a smart and talented actor should be, which is the reason why, she has both Indian and an equally impressive international fan following.

Dharma Productions wishes her luck and success in her future endeavors.

Happy Birthday Shankar Mahadevan!

It’s the birthday of none other than the music maestro – Shankar Mahadevan whose voice bewitches our hearts and music captures our souls. He provided music a whole new paradigm with his sensational singing and music composing.

Shankar is the front man of the trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. Together they have composed music for a string of successful Dharma movies such as Kal Ho Naa Ho, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, and My Name is Khan. Recently, the trio won the Filmfare award – Best Music Director for 2 States.

Dharma Productions wishes Shankar a melodious birthday and a successful year ahead.

Happy Birthday Shraddha Kapoor

The smiling beauty of Bollywood celebrates her 26th birthday today.

Young, cool and petite, Shraddha charmed millions of hearts as Basanti in Ungli.
Glamorous and glitzy, Shraddha in her never seen before avatar, sparkled with her moves and her body language. Every time you watch the song, she ups the oomph looking extremely 'bisphotak'! Brownie points for her killer attitude and her spunky thumkas.

We also remember her role as Vasudha in the rom-com ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’, where contrary to her glam avatar now, her role was of a extremely simple and naive girl. Nevertheless, we love her in all her roles!

Dharma Productions wishes her a birthday blast and lots of luck for her upcoming movies.

Colors of Dharma

It’s the time to spread love and celebrate togetherness. It’s time for Holi.

Holi may not be the most glamorous occasion unlike other Indian festivals but there is immense fun in the celebration of Holi. Playing with coloured powders and splashing coloured water on loved ones, the festival is celebrated by everyone irrespective of religion and creed. It is the festival of colours and resembles life in many ways.

Life is a blend of myriad emotions just like Holi is a blend of various colors. These emotions paint our lives, relationships, our moods, etc. Dharma Productions has always demonstrated this through their movies. Dharma movies have oodles of emotions packed in each scene, each character, each song, etc.

This month, we celebrate the theme ‘Colors of Dharma’ and reminisce the many emotions that have been so well captured in Dharma movies. Whether it is the family bonding in movies such as Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham or We Are Family, or the undying love-romance in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kal Ho Naa Ho, or 2 States or the revengeful Agneepath or the idealistic Ungli, Dharma movies are known to be quite colorful.

Each week we celebrate various emotions. Do participate and share your favorite colors, favorite emotions and the favorite Dharma songs and scenes while you paint your life colorful with Holi.
