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.
