Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Pamavat has been through a sea of controversy before it finally locked in for release on January 25, 2018. Padmavat finally got cleared by the censor board for at the end of 2017 with 26 cuts, a change in title and a U/A certificate.One other demand of the censor board was that the filmmakers hide Deepika Padukone's waist in the song Ghoomar. Now over dozens of portrayals of Rajput women in movies this requirement seemed a bit odd but Sanjay Leela Bhansali finally showed passionately he wants to film to make it to the theatres despite all threats and controversies. The filmmaker has actually managed to hide Deepika's waistline in the song Ghoomar!Now many of us thought we would never really get to see the song after all, but here's the edited song where Deepika's waist has been hidden even to the inch of detail.The film that was all set to take on PadMan at the box office will also now release solo after Bhansali put in a request with Akshay and made a joint statement that PadMan will now release on 9th February and after all troubles, Padmavat will finally make it to the theatres solo this Republic Day.

Remember how we used to book tickets to our most awaited films back in time and the films used to be a saga of at least 3 hours and show times ran like 3 to 6 or 6 to 9?Well films have now really become shorter and movie timing in multiplexes follow no odd rules. But while some Bollywood movies have long stories to tell like Gangs of Wasseypur that ran for over 5 hours, there are some films in Bollywood that told the story in as short as 40 minutes. Now, call it crisp editing or just small stories, these are the shortest mainstream films by run time.

Bollywood’s cup runneth over with songs about mindless boozing and partying, but here’s another to add to the list anyway. Chote Chote Peg, the third new song from Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety, harps on the same cord once again: wearing lehengas, reusing an old hit and drinking like there is no tomorrow.The song, from Luv Ranjan’s upcoming film, feature leads Kartik Aaryan, Nushrat Bharucha and Sunny Singh dancing to Yo Yo Honey Singh’s rap and Neha Kakkar and Navraj Hans’ voices. It samples Navraj’s father, Hans Raj Hans’ hit song from 2000 film Bichhoo, Tote Tote Ho Gaya.Chote Chote Peg begins with Nushrat vogueing, fully clothed, in a bathtub, singing about being a ‘bad girl’ who likes whisky. Of course, the boys think it is their responsibility to keep her away from the booze or at least convince her to make smaller pegs.The three then dance together and quite expertly for someone who has downed ‘half a dozen’ bottles of alcohol. In a separate scene we see Nushrat and Karthik get cosy and kinky, spilling good alcohol on each other’s bodies. It’s weird because she is supposed to be his friend’s fiance in the film.The film is about Karthik warning his friend, played by Sunny, against falling in love with Nushrat because she seems too good to be true. It releases on February 9.

It’s virtually impossible for a regular Bollywood movie to come as far as the fourth or fifth week at ticket counters and we’re talking about the tenth. The blockbusters with maximum box office impact over the last two decades have had a fairly long theatrical run in order to make good money. Of course the screen count back then was much lower and distributors had no choice but to hold off until the movie was minting money.And today when you look at it, it took Tiger Zinda Hai less than twenty days to make 300 crores. So talking about the movies that not only had the honor of making it until the tenth week but also making good money, we thought of listing out the best performing ones.Here are ten Bollywood hits with highest tenth week box office collections:Rank 10 – Dil To Pagal Hai – 1997Box Office – 1.21 CroresRank 9 – Hum Saath Saath Hain – 1999Box Office – 1.33 CroresRank 8 – Raja Hindustani – 1996Box Office – 1.48 CroresRank 7 – Mohabbatein – 2000Box Office – 1.60 CroresRank 6 – Border – 1997Box Office – 1.62 CroresRank 5 – Kuch Kuch Hota Hai – 1998Box Office – 1.65 CroresRank 4 – Hum Aapke Hain Koun – 1994Box Office – 1.77 CroresRank 3 – Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge – 1995Box Office – 2.42 CroresRank 2 – Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai – 2000Box Office – 2.79 CroresRank 1 – Gadar: Ek Prem Katha – 2001Box Office – 2.86 Crores
