Salman Khan‘s Jai Ho, which released yesterday, is all set to have a good weekend at the box office. According to trade analysts, the film has had around an 80% – 100% opening in certain sectors, and should go higher on Republic Day (Sunday). Reviews remain mixed for the most part, but one thing is certain: the film will make money. Whether it’ll break records is yet to be seen.

The Filmfare awards were held last night, and the who’s who of Bollywood was out to accept awards, perform, or just enjoy the show. Stay tuned for more coverage on that front – we’ve got lots of pictures and the winners’ list coming to you very soon.

Unfortunately for Shah Rukh Khan, although he went back to the Happy New Year sets after being injured while shooting, his troubles are not over just yet. That same day, the actor returned to the hospital for further tests, and was told that he would require bed rest for the next three weeks. According to reports, that means the shooting for Happy New Year will get pushed back. Major portions of the film have already been shot; however, a few sequences need to be wrapped up. Those will have to wait until SRK’s injury has healed.

Yesterday, YRF’s Aditya Chopra announced that he would now launch and support new producers under his own banner, starting with their existing talent pool. The first is Maneesh Sharma (who has previously directed Band Baaja Baaraat, Ladies vs Ricky Bahl and Shuddh Desi Romance). Maneesh will be producing the Sharad Katariya-directed Dum Laga Ke Haisha, which will star Ayushmann Khurrana. The film will go on floors early next month, and is expected to release in 2015.

Meanwhile, there are two books being launched in the industry currently! Tisca Chopra is releasing her book Acting Smart: Your Ticket to Showbiz, which Imtiaz Ali will be launching at an event tomorrow. At the same time, there’s another book by 9 year old Kashvee R Barjatya, titled Lost in the Woods, which will be unveiled by some glamorous stars like Karisma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon and – of course – the Barjatya clan, including Sooraj Barjatya.

Lots more coming up today, so keep your eyes out!
