` 30-Cr Deal For Ranveer
After two back-to-back hits, Ranveer Singh has become one of Bollywood’s hottest cake. After his recovery from a bad attack of dengue, Ranveer has kept busy with shoots and promotions. He is currently racing through a pile of scripts in the hope of finding something interesting, before he left for Delhi on March 7 for a month-long second schedule of an upcoming film. It is learnt that Eros International has approached him with a two-film, Rs 30-crore deal. Ranveer was reportedly told that he could pick a set-up of his choice including the script, cast, director and even a calendar of dates. But, it seems the actor turned down the offer because he did not want to take up a project blindly.
One Million For Alia
Here’s another good news for Alia Bhatt, who is already basking in the glory of her last film Highway’s success.

The adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s novel by the same name has 1,144,065 views with over 10, 000 likes. This ratio of crossing one million views within a day is one of the highest figures for a Bollywood film’s trailer. This is the first time that Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor will be seen onscreen together. They will also be seen locking lips and turning up the temperature with steamy lovemaking scenes. Directed by Abhishek Varman, ‘2 States’ is slated to hit screens by April 18.
