A major film release…a major film’s trailer release…a few high-profile Diwali bashes…the Diwali week pretty much kept Bollywood from being dull and boring!

While Salman Khan had his second release of the year this week, his good friend Shah Rukh Khan released the trailer of his much awaited and solo film of the year. Then there were Diwali parties and Bajirao Mastani also squeezed in to get its share of attention. Let’s look at the top 5 news-makers of the week!

Bajirao Mastani and Dilwale posters clash…again!
This Sunday, the makers of Bajirao Mastani released Priyanka Chopra’s Kashibai poster (drool!) and Deepika Padukone’s Mastani poster (OMG!) within a few hours. Since Priyanka wasn’t in the country, as she was shooting in Canada, Kashibai poster was released online but the Mastani poster was launched in a grand way. However, with a few minutes of the unveiling of the Mastani look, the makers of Dilwale released the first look of their lead cast – Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon – in a single poster, without any sort of intimidation. This, kids, is what we call us stealing someone’s attention!

PRDP Dubsmash vs Dilwale Dubsmash
Unlike the previous section, this was one rivalry that made everyone go Awwww! Salman Khan and his PRDP costars, including Sonam Kapoor, Neil Nithin Mukesh, Swara Bhaskar and Deepak Dobriyal, did a Dubsmash of Shah Rukh Khan’s DDLJ track. After that, the Dilwale team, including SRK, Kajol, Varun Dhawan, Kriti Sanon and Rohit Shetty, reciprocated the deed by doing a Dubsmash of PRDP’s title track. Seeing the growing camaraderie between SRK and Salman Khan, we can almost imagine Rakhee Gulzar popping up and say , ‘Mere Karan Arjun aa gaye!’


Dilwale trailer launched
The much anticipated Dilwale trailer was finally launched in a grand way by Shah Rukh Khan and his team, and as expected, it was a typical Rohit Shetty film with romance, comedy, action, high production values and more cars being blown. The only thing that now makes it unique is the SRK-Kajol pairing in the film, that comes of as the USP of the film.



The Diwali bash and the great reunion
The Bachchans held a big Diwali bash at their house, with Amitabh, Jaya Bachchan, Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan playing the perfect hosts. Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra, Preity Zinta, Vikas Bahl, Jacqueline Fernandez, Raveena Tandon, Ranveer Singh, Sonakshi Sinha, Anil Kapoor, Dimple Kapadia etc. being the part of the guest roster. Then there was Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor’s party, where Salman Khan almost bumped into Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor!

Prem Ratan Dhan Payo gets a HUGE release



This Diwali week as purely reserved for Salman Khan’s goody-goody act in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. The film is directed by Sooraj Barjatya and also stars Sonam Kapoor, Anupam Kher, Swara Bhaskar, Deepak Dobriyal, Armaan Kohli and Neil Nitin Mukesh.
