Alia Bhatt's Dream Comes True With RRR, Shraddha is Replaced by Parineeti in Sania Nehwal Biopic
In today's wrap, read our review of Ritesh Batra's Photograph, composer Amit Trivedi's take on the trend of remakes in Bollywood, and more.

It's been a great year for actress Alia Bhatt, who turned 26 today. She won critical acclaim with Raazi and Gully Boy, and will soon be seen in the ambitious multi-starrer projects like Kalank and Brahmastra. The cherry on her birthday cake came in the form of SS Rajamouli's magnum opus RRR, which will mark the Tamil debut of Alia. The actress is over the moon to be part of this big-budgeted project.

It's definitely celebration time for the actress, who cut three cakes and rang in her birthday with friends Anushka and Akanksha Ranjan and Masaba Gupta and parents Soni Razdan and Mahesh Bhatt, among few others, last night.

Ritesh Batra's Photograph, which has already been a talking point at prestigious international festivals at Sundance and Berlin, released in India today. Starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Sanya Malhotra, it's a story of the most unlikely people finding respite from their loneliness in someone unexpected.

Here are the top entertainment news of the day.

After undergoing a gruelling training in badminton for months, actress Shraddha Kapoor has reportedly opted out of Saina Nehwal biopic over scheduling conflicts. A report in DNA claims that Shraddha, who is currently busy shooting Street Dancer 3D in London along with Varun Dhawan, has been replaced by Parineeti Chopra.

At the preview of Photograph, there were diametrically opposite opinions on the film. Ritesh Batra, the director and the writer of this film – has spun genteel stories where the most unlikely people find respite from their loneliness in someone unexpected. Photograph, a film about Rafi (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) a street photographer, one of the many migrants who come to the city from Uttar Pradesh in search of a livelihood and Miloni (Sanya Malhotra), a Gujarati girl, is one such. In a particularly clever stroke, Batra infuses his story with subtle humour created by Rafi’s friends and his dadi.
