Salman doesn’t like Katrina wear small skirt

>> Friday, August 28, 2009


You may wonder what has gone wrong with Salman Khan when he said that he doesn’t watch his girlfriend Katrina Kaif’s films. In fact, his feedback would be invaluable but he has his own reason for shying away from her films. The reason is – he doesn’t like to see her wearing sexy and small skirt. Salman admitted that he doesn’t watch Katrina’s film. But why? He said that he once watched her film and she was wearing a small skirt, which he didn’t quite like.

Meanwhile, he is aware that he has to let it go sometimes. He is left with no option but to keep away from such films. He added that he could make out the genre of her film from the promos and stay away if necessary.The reports that Salman was guiding Katrina was right as he admitted that he did help her initially. However, he said that he doesn’t interfere in her work anymore, as she’s grown up and has good scene of choice.

Salman said that Katrina used to ask him to check out a couple of her scenes due her problem with dubbing but he has stopped it now, as he doesn’t want to be labelled as an aggressive boyfriend who barges into his girlfriend’s sets.

Salman to take on SRK in the field

Salman, SRK

After taking on Shahrukh Khan on the screen and off it Bollywood hunk Salman Khan is also set to take his arch rival on the cricket field. Salman has shown interest in owning a team in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The actor apparently met Lalit Modi the chairman and commissioner of the IPL to discuss the possibility of buying one of the two new teams which will be added to the tournament from the 2011 season.

Salman has been toying with the idea of owing a team ever since he saw fellow celebrities Preity Zinta, Juhi Chawla and Shilpa Shetty apart from SRK being associated with India’s cricketing extravaganza. Although the names of the cities haven’t been finalised by the IPL body, cities like Ahmedabad, Nagpur and Vishakhaptanam are being discussed. Apart from Salman Khan, Ajay Devgan and Sanjay Dutt are also reportedly interested in owning IPL teams.

But is not going to be easy for Salman to own a team as some of India’s leading corporates will take part in the auction will take place in January 2010. Markets analysts believe each of the two teams could sell for as much as Rs. 1000 Crores. It remains to be seen if Salman alone goes for a team or ties up with other Bollywood celebrities to own a team. The Bollywood war though will be fought on a different battle ground.


Kareena is always special to me: Abhishek Bachchan

Abhishek Bachchan

We all have heard so many rumours that things between the Kapoors and Bachchans soured after the Karisma and Abhishek wedding was called off. Kareena and Abhishek too fell apart following this regrettable split.The duo made Bollywood debut together in “Refugee”. Abhishek Bachchan has a special place for Kareena Kapoor in his heart as she was his first co-actress.

Abhishek Bacchan says, “Bebo has always said that she was my first heroine and she will always be special for me. She is not only a very sweet girl but also one of the finest actresses. We started our journey together. So she is always special to me.” On asking whether he would like to work with Kareena Kapoor again in future he says, “Of course, I will. People keep saying that I refuse to work with her. The fact is that nothing worthwhile has come up.”

Sources revealed that, Abhishek Bachchan may act opposite Kareena Kapoor in Randhir Kapoor’s upcoming movie.


Bipasha Basu’s cheque didn’t come on time

Bipasha Basu

Shahrukh Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, Katrina Kaif, Gulshan and Grover performed at the South Asian Carnival on August 15. Bipasha was to be part of the package but she stayed back in London as her cheque didn’t arrive. This was a part of a two-day, extravagant fun fair in Chicago to celebrate India’s Independence Day for people to see their favorite stars and get their autographs and pictures too. Bipasha, who reached Mumbai a couple of days back and is currently shooting in Kadaikudi for Priyadarshan’s film opposite Ajay Devgan, says, “Yes, I didn’t go for the Independence Day Carnival in Chicago. The money didn’t come on time so instead of going to US, I stayed back in London to spend time with John (Abraham) and shooting for Harpers Bazaar.” The actress is very clear about the stance she had to take vis-a-vis her trip to Chicago.

Katrina, Saif, Kareena were holidaying there but I had to take a nine-hour flight to Chicago. I didn’t want to fly without any confirmation. They were willing to pay me part of my entire remuneration. The organisers (Cineyug’s Morani brothers) told me to take a chance and fly down from London (where Bipasha was) to Chicago. They said they would try to see what they could do depending on the crowd turnout but I flatly refused.I couldn’t afford to take a chance and fly all the way down without getting my full amount.” So she stayed back in London “chilling with John and shopping for bath and kitchen accessories at Heels, John Lewis and Selfridges for my new home in Khar.” Morani says, “Frankly, the overseas business is handled by Karim and Aly and I really don’t have knowledge of this.” Despite repeated text messages and calls Karim and Aly remained unavailable for comment.

For Priyadarshan’s film which is based on honour killings, Bipasha dons “a simple, deglam, realistic and very traditional Bengali look though I play a Bihari girl. “I am clad in simple cotton sarees, with bindi, hair in a bun. I play a housewife and am growing my hair for the role. It’s quite a defined one and I am very excited to be playing it,” says the Bengali actress, who has Rituparno Ghosh’s Shab Charitro Kalponik, Sanjay Gupta’s Pankh and Ajay Devgan’s All The Best coming up as her next releases.


Priyanka Chopra not allowed to wear jeans

Priyanka Chopra

Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who made a style statement with her hot pants and halter tops in “Dostana”, wasn’t allowed to wear a pair of jeans at home.The 27-year-old actress, who was brought up in Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh, faced these restrictions at home after returning from the US, where she had gone to do her high school.

“I wasn’t allowed to wear short skirts and then my jeans were also confiscated. And my mother got 12 salwar kameez sets made for me so that I wore only those because when I used to go to school, guys used to follow me,” Priyanka revealed on Farah Khan’s chat show “Tere Mere Beach Mein”.

But that phase is over for Priyanka who is counted among the most glamorous actresses in Bollywood today.


Rishi Kapoor to contend for Elections?

Rishi Kapoor

Next Gen Films and Kaleidoscope Entertainment announced today the release of Chintuji, a humorous take on actors becoming politicians. Starring veteran actor Rishi Kapoor who plays himself (Chintu Kapoor), the hilarious satire is scheduled to release on 4thSeptember. After being highly appreciated in the super hit Love Aaj Kal, Rishi Kapoor is all set to captivate audiences with his character driven role in Chintuji where he plays himself Rishi ‘Chintu’ Kapoor. Set in a small but beautiful village called ‘Hadbahedi’, Chintuji casts Rishi Kapoor in an intriguing role, which has been very special to the actor.

The film has been produced by Bobby Bedi and written & directed by Ranjit Kapoor of cult comedy ‘Jane Bhi Do Yaaron’ fame of which he wrote the dialogues. In this hilarious satire on actors becoming politicians, the film takes the fun route with Rishi Kapoor playing a ‘reel life brat’ portraying all his ‘real life’ idiosyncrasies. Speaking of his role in Chintuji, Rishi Kapoor says, “I’m thrilled with this role as this is the first time I have portrayed a character this close to my real personality. I had a ball playing this role and it occupies a very special place in my heart. Despite being an uproarious comedy, the film still manages to remain meaningful and beautifully brings out the satire and emotions.

It’s a superb blend of fiction and reality. In the words of one of my Father, Shri Raj Kapoor’s favourite songs – it is “Aadhi Haqeeqat, Aadha fasana”. The film stars Rishi Kapoor as lead protagonist along with Priyanshu Chatterjee, Kulraj Randhawa, Grusha Kapoor and Sourabh Shukla with a special performance by Sophie Choudhary.


Salman-Shahid patch up!


They say it’s never too late and our two actors might have just realised that. After a bitter fallout during the Rockstars concert in 2006, Salman Khan and Shahid Kapoor had been avoiding each other like the plague. It so happened that Salman was not getting his steps right and Shahid offered to help him out. Apparently Salman didn’t like this young actor’s interference and asked him to leave him alone.

Salman even opted out of Satish Kaushik’s long awaited film, Shahid-starrer Milenge Milenge, wherein he was supposed to do a cameo. But guess what we hear now? Shahid has agreed to be part of Salman Khan’s popular show 10 Ka Dum where he will be promoting his forthcoming film Dil Bole Hadippa with co-star Rani Mukerji.

Seems like Shahid is indeed basking in the glory of his successful career and has forgotten the episode whole heartedly. Salman too has been gracious enough to invite them on his show.


Is London Dreams a copy?

London Dreams

Milos Forman directed Amadeus revolves Austrian musicians Salieri and Mozart. Salieri is immensely jealous of Mozart’s talent. He thinks his own music is pure and Mozart’s compositions are outlandish. He tries to thwart Mozart’s musical attempts and even gets his hands on Mozart’s original work through his wife and passes it off as his own. In the end, his envy gets the better of him and he murders Mozart. London Dreams, shot extensively in London, Paris and Punjab is the story of two childhood friends, played by Ajay and Salman who want to be rock stars. So they grow up and fulfill their dreams and both of them fall in love with Asin, the dancer of their band which is called London Dreams.

It is about the rivalry between them and also about who finally gets the girl. If London Dreams is a contemporary adaptation of Amadeus then, Ajay Devgan will play Salieri whose music is pure, Salman will play the outlandish Mozart and Asin will play Salman’s love interest. Shaka Laka Boom Boom starring Bobby Deol, Upen Patel, Celina Jaitley and Kangna Ranaut, was an awfully made take on Amadeus. When contacted, Vipul Shah said, “London Dreams is not similar to any film. It is an original piece of work. Why does everybody have to doubt an Indian filmmaker?

Just because it is about two guys who are in the world of music, so it becomes like some other film?” Let’s just wait for his dreams to unfold. London Dreams releases on October 30, 2009.

Bipasha skips Salman’s show for John

Bipasha, John

The latest buzz doing the round is that Bong bombshell Bipasha Basu skips Salman Khan’s reality show ‘Dus Ka Dum’ due to Sallu’s on-going rivalry with beau John Abraham. John and Salman were not on talking terms for a long period and on looking at their differences, Bipasha Basu decided not to appear on Salman’s show as she does not want to get into any controversy.Her co-stars Ajay Devgan and Fardeen Khan are likely to appear but the sexy lady turned down.

Shahid Kapoor’s big Risk

Shahid Kapur

With movie theatres in Mumbai remaining shut on Sunday, Shahid Kapoor’s plan to mingle with his fans had gone for a toss. However, the actor has made it up as he has hit the ticket counters when they reopened post the swine flu panic in the city. Speaking about the rave reviews of the film, he says, “The reaction from the audience has been amazing and I want to interact with them. People have given me great reviews and I feel very lucky and happy that my hard work has been noticed,” he says. But wasn’t he apprehensive to sign this pulp genre film which has a very quirky plot? Such films either dazzle audiences or get completely rejected.

It was a gamble definitely as such films either shock people or they reject it but I’m happy that the risk has paid off well. I really had to get out of my comfort zone and break my boy-next-door image. The difference in my look is also great. I’m really happy that Vishal trusted me with the film,” he says. On the industry front, Saif Ali Khan in an interview had said he wants to patch up with Shahid. He also went back on his comment that he was offered Kaminey before Shahid. Is Shahid looking to bury the hatchet too? I never started anything with him. I learnt that he had commented to a paper that he was offered the film first and now he has clarified that he wasn’t. I really appreciate that he clarified. It really takes a lot to clarify oneself after saying something different,” he ends.

Saif’s comment on Kaminey ‘I don’t want to sound false, but now I realise that in the past I might have made an irresponsible comment of having been offered a role in Kaminey. But the fact is that I was not. Vishal (Bhardwaj) had just mentioned the film to me.’

Akshay Kumar gets Deepika some rest!


After the attack of malaria in London Deepika Padukone has had no time to slow down let alone take a break. In fact she was determined to continue working through her delicate post-illness phase specially since she flew down to Delhi for the release of Love Aaj Kal and therefore lost more precious shooting days. But then Deepika hadn’t really bargained for a unit as large-hearted as Sajid Nadiadwala’s. In spite of the lost dates the producer, director and the leading man Akshay Kumar got together to give Deepika some time off this week.

Says a source, “Since the cast involves many other permutations and combinations between Akshay and the rest of the cast they decided to let Deepika rest it out for a week and do scenes with the rest of the cast.” Deepika promptly called her family over to relax and feel at home in the city where she’s constantly shooting. First Love Aaj Kal now Housefull “My Dad, Mum and sister were here for a few days. I got to spend some much-needed time with them.I hardly get to visit them in India. They visit me in Mumbai more than I visit them in Bangalore. And they visit me when I’m abroad. They came to Bangkok during Chandni Chowk To China.

Now they were here in London.I don’t want them to come to boring places. They should’ve fun when they visit me.”


SRK US detention shows cold war with Big B continues

>> Thursday, August 20, 2009


Shah Rukh Khan, who returned to India after being detained by the US officials at the Newark airport for over two hours for security check- up, has slammed Amar Singh (read Bachchan camp, Singh is a close family friend of Bachchans) for saying that it was all meant to promote his upcoming flick ‘My Name Is Khan’. King Khan went on to thrash Amar Singh, the politically powerful friend of Amitabh Bachchan, by saying that such mean things could have come only from a mean mind, and he(SRK) was certainly above all such petty things. Shah Rukh Khan’s reasoning was simple that he was too big a bollywood icon to need such cheap publicity, and in any case being held at any airport was never a matter of pride for any individual.

Earlier, Amar Singh, who is being taken care of by Amitabh Bachchan in Singapore after his kidney transplantation, had said that Shah Rukh was making detention an issue to promote his latest flick ‘My Name Is Khan’.The industry observers see the whole development of Shah Rukh Khan slamming Amar Singh as a clear proof of ongoing cold war between Amitabh Bachchan and King Khan. The industry insiders feel that Amar Singh could not have made such a statement without the consent and knowledge of Amitabh Bachchan, who is staying with him in Singapore. In fact, while slamming Shah Rukh Khan for making the whole thing miserable, Amar Singh had even quoted the instance of Amitabh Bachchan that how he submitted to the scrutiny of US officials without any complaints or grouse.

Amar Singh had also thrashed Shah Rukh Khan for considering himself above the law of a country.Shah Rukh Khan’s retaliation to Amar Singh’s comments is likely to create further tension between Bachchans and King Khan camp, and all the efforts of reconciliation being made by the likes of Karan Johar would come to naught.Earlier, at Karan Johar’s birthday bash, Shah Rukh Khan-Gauri and Abhishek-Aishwarya were seen conversing animatedly, and it was conjectured that there had been a visible thaw in the cold war between Bachchans and Shah Rukh Khan. But after the latest incident, the cold war seems to be very much on and getting hot under the collar too.In the mean time, Shah Rukh Khan has been invited by Hollywood star and current Californian governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to have dinner with him at his residence.

This invitation came to Shah Rukh Khan after the incident made headlines in the world media, but he chose to return to India. It is not clear if Shah Rukh Khan is willing to travel back to the US so soon to attend the dinner after being humiliated in such a manner. However, the date of dinner has been extended now to September 20, so that Shah Rukh Khan can make up his mind in this regard. It may be recalled that after the humiliating US detention, Shah Rukh Khan had said that he would like to limit his travel to the US, and would prefer going to other countries for shooting of his films etc.


Hrithik Roshan offers help to paraplegics

Hrithik, Ash

Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan was so moved after meeting people affected with paraplegia while researching for his role in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Guzaarish” that he has decided to help them in whatever way he can. Hrithik is playing a paraplegic in “Guzaarish” and met patients to be able to get under the skin of his character. While meetings the patients helped him understand his character better, it also left a deep impact on his mind.

Hrithik is taking his role very seriously and has been reading a lot on paraplegia and watching videos to understand and study their mannerisms and behaviour. In fact, he even visited several people affected by the disease to get a first hand account of their experiences,” said a source close to the actor.The intensive study and frequent interactions with people suffering from the disorder have moved Hrithik to a great extent.

He came across some young, talented people who were left incapacitated due to paraplegia and he immediately decided to do his bit to help them,” added the source. Aishwarya Rai is playing female lead in the film.


No more USA for Shahrukh Khan?

Shahrukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan was frisked at the Newark airport and we have been hearing about it ever since. The media has spoken about it. SRK’s friends and ex-friends have spoken about it. Cricketers have given their opinion. And even the Governor of California, Mr Arnold Schwarzenegger has invited Khan for dinner at Washington DC. So I was really not surprised when I heard this one.

Apparently, producer Viveck Vaswani has taken the entire episode to heart and cancelled the premiere of his SRK starrer film Dulha Mil Gaya in the US.What however shocked me was when I heard about the new destination chosen by Vaswani for the King Khan. A little birdie tells me, the producer has now decided to hold the premiere of his film in Trinidad. The film is set for a November 13 release.But then there’s a reason behind choosing that particular destination.

In the film, Shah Rukh Khan plays the role of a businessman based out of… TRINIDAD!He has been paired with his Main Hoon Na co-star Sushmita Sen in the film.The film is about the SRK-Sush and another couple played by Fardeen Khan and Tara Sharma. It has been directed by Mudassar Aziz.


Deepika Padukone witnessed a shootout in London


Deepika Padukone was in the middle of a shootout in London recently. The actress is presently shooting for Sajid Khan’s Housefull there. During a shopping spree with a friend on the New Bond Street, the OSO girl was witness to chaos in a cops and murder drama.A source reveals, “Deepika was walking with her friend and they entered a store. All they heard the sounds of ambulances and police cars zipping past the store.

The actress and her companion were wondering whether to stay put, or step out of the store when the owner of the shop alerted them about the shootout in the parallel lane. “The store owner advised the girls to sneak out the back exit, as it would be safer. There was too much commotion in the area but they managed to jump into a cab and reach the hotel.

On her way back, she saw the area where the shootout took place and realised how close she was to the scene of crime. The London police had sealed off the narrow alley where the shoot out took place and there was some blood on the streets.


Katrina Kaif is a liar!


Read it to believe it. Bollywood present sensational Katrina Kaif is actually Katrina Turquotte. This astounding revelation has been made by actor Jackie Shroff’s wife Ayesha Shroff who claimed to have introduced Katrina Kaif to Bollywood. Revealing the sensational news, Ayesha said, “Katrina had an English surname, which was not easy to pronounce. She is not Katrina Kaif originally. She is Katrina Turquotte. We wanted to give her a surname which would be accepted by the Indian audience.

First we thought of naming her Katrina Kazi, but then we thought Kazi would have a religious overtone. So we thought of Kaif . Ayesha claimed that Kat’s passport at that time named Katrina Turquotte. What made Katrina to keep her title hidden is not yet known but when Ayesha was asked whether Katrina and she are still in touch, Ayesha replied, “Not really. We met at a party once and just greeted each other.

Now, from Ayesha’s statement two conclusions can be drawn, first she is the actually Katrina’s real mentor and not Salman Khan and secondly, Katrina is not Kaif but Turquotte.


Arnold asks Shahrukh Khan out


California Governor and Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger has invited King Khan Shah Rukh for a dinner date. This comes right after the humiliation Shah Rukh went through at the Newark Airport. The actor was held back as airport authorities were suspicious of his surname. Khan went through secondary interrogation and the entire racial discrimination episode caused a flurry in India. Shah Rukh only yesterday reached Indian shores and was bombarded by the press on the entire situation being a publicity stunt for his upcoming film.

Political Honcho Amar Singh also termed it as a publicity stunt for My Name is Khan which is based on the same lines. While Shah Rukh rubbished the allegations, he was appalled by the type of attention the situation had got. ‘Its not as big as some are making it seem, while I was disappointed with whatever transpired at the airport, its no publicity stunt at all,’ he confirmed with local press. At the time being there is no news whether or not Shah Rukh has accepted Arnie’s invitation and for now it seems that the dinner date has been postponed to September 20th.

Shah Rukh should kiss and make up and maybe even ask Arnie to make a special appearance in My Name is Khan, make him dance to his tunes, what say! That would be payback alright!


Asin gets marriage proposal


South Indian actress Asin Thottumkal, who has entered Bollywood through Aamir Khan’s Ghajini, gets marriage proposals from her admirers and fans too often that she is immune to them. But she just couldn’t ignore the proposal she got from one of her admirers, and she is very secretive about it.Asin can’t forget a marriage proposal from her fan from Chennai, who sent her a solitaire along with an emotional letter.

She said that it is a very personal issue involving her fan and so she wouldn’t speak about it.Well, here is a lucky guy who knows how to steal Asin’s heart.Who knows if they end up in marriage. You never know!


What makes Shahid-Priyanka a hot pair?


The lead pair of Kaminey are like cats in the cradle. There is something special about the duo that connects to the audience naturally. The chemistry they share is incredible – looks like real. We are talking about the hot and happening pair Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra. No wonder Kaminey has made a great opening.

Shahid and Priyanka get along like a house on fire. They know how to keep their film in the news and managed to keep their real and reel love story in suspense till its release.As the audience watches the film, this question keep popping up – are they or aren’t they in love in real life? Curiosity turns into thrill.

They have denied dating each other though they have been spotted together at hot spots many a time. But they can’t deny the fact that they look great together on screen. They look great together off screen too. This has made them a hot pair, perhaps the hottest pair in Bollywood today


King Khan gives a fitting reply to Amar Singh


Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh’s had criticised Shahrukh Khan’s reaction to his detention in US claiming SRK had blown it out of proportion. He said that Shahrukh was doing this to promote his upcoming movie My Name Is Khan. He added that it former President Abdul Kalam hadn’t complained about the treatment meted out him in India why was Shahrukh making a big issue out of it. When quizzed about Singh’s comments during a press conference, King Khan sarcastically said that he thought Amar Singh was unwell and taking treatment in Singapore.

Adding more to his sarcasm SRK asked if Singh was back in Mumbai and in a physical condition to make such statements. He stressed on the fact that SRK and My Name Is Khan need no cheap publicity. He added that he wished Singh recovers soon with a healthy body and a strong mind Shahrukh and Amar Singh’s tu tu mein mein goes a long way back. Shahrukh had made fun of him during an award function some years back which hadn’t gone down well too well with the UP strongman.

Amar Singh’s closeness with the Bachchan family means Shahrukh always has to be in his firing line. Well a politician even in a hospital doesn’t refrain himself from making controversial statements.


Mallika Sherawat, the un-suitable woman?

Mallika Sherawat

Mallika Sherawat has time and again flaunted her assets. So, understandably one time she wanted to be totally covered up, she faced a huge hurdle. If designer Pria Kataria Puri is to be believed, the actor made a request out of the blue to her to create a demure, smart brown suit for her, giving the strangest of reasons. Pria says, “On August 7, I had participated in a charity event organised by Jagriti wherein I had put together a fashion show. We had quite a few celebrities in attendance and Lisa Ray wore an outfit of mine for this charity event.” Mallika Sherawat too, was supposed to wear one of her outfits for the event.

Mallika asked meto email her my designs in orange and off-white. But a couple of days later she asked me to design her a brown western suit!” Pria says.”She sent me a picture of herself with a a woman lawyer –saying that she wants to wear the kind of suit the lady was wearing, as she would be playing a lawyer in one of her forthcoming films and she wanted to prepare for the role” Pria says in disbelief. Pria refused to meet Mallika’s demands as the outfit “Didn’t fit in my line of work”. This seemed to have irked Mallika. Not surprisingly then, the actor made a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance at the said event. “She came in, spoke for a few minutes and made a dash for the exit,”says Pria.

However, Mallika’s spokesperson has a different story to tell, “Mallika was to speak on behalf of the charity devoted to victims of domestic abuse. She thought it most appropriate to wear an outfit that fit the occasion and did not detract from the message. When it was understood that designer Pria did not and could not make anything for Mallika that complemented the serious issue, Mallika purchased a professional suit from Christian Dior. In any case, Mallika will continue to devote her time and efforts for good causes like Jagriti and she thinks Pria is a talented designer whose clothes she looks forward to wearing in the future.”

Good thing that Mallika kept her commitment, in spite of the differences!

>> Wednesday, August 19, 2009

shahid kapoor

Disappointed Amitabh threatens to stop blogging


He is 66 years old but no actor in Bollywood blogs as regularly as him. He keeps connected to his fans and well wishers ever since his blog was launched. But he has threatened to stop blogging if readers continue to post harsh comments. Yes, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan is visibly disappointed with some comments.

A few hospital visits with my friend for routine checks and balances, a stop over at the chemist store en route, to get some tie ups for the back, the gym and the pedometer racing away to near 8,500 steps, to the room to respond to comments and a heavy heart to witness a few familia extendum, using the platform of this medium to get personal and ugly with each other,” wrote Amitabh on his blog.

And each hashed comment that I came across as I scrolled down to the last, that indulged in a slang match, felt like a stab in my precarious rib cage. So here are the options. Either you stop or I stop,” he added. Well, readers should stop posting harsh comments and let the superstar pour his experience and wisdom to his fans. His fans need him as much as he needs them!


Aamir Khan to become India’s Prime Minister

Aamir Khan

Bollywood’s patriotic Hero Manoj Kumar is back in action. Tinsel town’s very own ‘Bharat’ who patronised the flavour of patriotism and unity through his movies Shaheed, Purab Aur Paschim and Upkaar is all set to make a movie on India’s third Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri. Manoj is known to have the script ready and finalising the cast.

Manoj had plans to cast Amitabh Bachchan who had acted in his Roti Kapda Aur Makan in the lead role but due to his prior commitments has dropped the idea. If sources close to the legendary actor are to be believed he has zeroed in on perfectionist actor Aamir Khan. The movie will portray the life of Shastri, a key figure in Indian independence moment and one of India’s most dynamic Prime Ministers.

It may be recalled that after the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965, Lal Bahadur Shastri asked Manoj to create a film based on the popular slogan ‘Jai Jawan Jai Kissan’. The result was Kumar’s magnum opus directorial debut Upkaar in 1967 where he played both a soldier and a farmer. The film was also noted for the famous song ‘Mere Desh Ki Dharti’.


Abhishek not curving Aishwarya on his arm

Abhishek, Aishwarya

There have been widespread media reports in the last few days about Abhishek Bachchan being the next in line to tattoo his super star actress wife Aishwarya Bachchan’s name on his forearm. It was also reported that Abhishek, who is presently shooting down South for his Mani Ratnam film Raavan, has taken an appointment with the same tattoo artist who did the tattoo for Hrithik Roshan of wife Suzanne.

Reports attributed to “sources close to Abhishek’ further claimed that he wanted to surprise Aishwarya with the tattoo. But we have managed to get official confirmation from Abhishek Bachchan’s spokesperson that these reports floating around are nothing but plain rumours. We were further told that Abhishek is presently shooting for Raavan near Ooty and has not taken any appointment from any tattoo artist and has no such plans either.

The tattoo trend of imbibing one’s partner’s name on one’s most visible part of the body – the forearm had begun with Saif Ali Khan getting the ‘Kareena’ tattoo done. Akshay Kumar too has been sporting his son’s Aarav’s name on his back.


Kangana Ranaut goes light-hearted

Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut is known for playing heavy duty roles in films like Gangster and Fashion, but the actress has now signed on her second light-hearted movie Tanu Weds Manu.The fun film, directed by Aanand L. Rai of Strangers fame, has Kangana paired with R. Madhavan. It was after much deliberation that Kangana was finalised for the role. The character that Kangana would be playing in Tanu Weds Manu is such that it is of paramount importance to get the casting right,” said Rai. Kangana, who has played a traumatised women in most of her films, was signed on for her first comic role by Anil Kapoor for his production No Problem, a comedy directed by Anees Bazmee.Before venturing into comedy, Kangana did a series of serious films.While she was haunted by ghosts in Raaz – The Mystery Continues, Fashion had her playing a supermodel who fell to drugs and abuse.

Life In A… Metro showed her in a turbulent affair with a much married boss (Kay Kay Menon), Woh Lamhe had her play a schizophrenic while in Gangster she played an alcoholic moll to a gangster (Shiney Ahuja).Director Rai, however, is confident that she will pull off the role in Tanu Weds Manu.”Yes, I have studied her filmography quite closely and I know for sure that Tanu Weds Manu would finally showcase Kangana in a different light. There is a definite humour to the film which thankfully is poles apart from life vs death roles that Kangana has played in the past,” he said.Explaining the reason behind finalising Kangana, Rai said: “When I was narrating the film to her, she came across as someone who was very passionate and energetic when it came to films. Moreover, what worked for me was the fact that she was taking a personal view on the subject. Now that’s the kind of girl I wanted for the film since I wanted her to add something of her own to the character as well.

But before Kangana, Rai had approached Konkona Sen Sharma but she couldn’t accept the offer due to date problems.”There were genuine date issues due to which Konkona couldn’t come on board. We are looking at shooting the film in the months of September, October and November but she is unavailable then. However, I’m happy about Kangana now being signed for the film since she and Madhavan coming together would be really special for the film.Rai had earlier made Strangers, a thriller that had Jimmy Sheirgill and Kay Kay Menon.”After working on Strangers, it is nice to be working on a light-hearted entertainer with a sensitive love story at its heart. The film has an interesting soul while going well with the commercial aspects of things. I would be travelling across my locations through the next few days and begin shooting in September,” he said.The filmmaker said his movie would be shot in places like Lucknow, Kanpur, Faridkot, Patiala and New Delhi.

I don’t need special treatment: Shahrukh Khan

Shahrukh Khan

Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, who returned to India today after his rather rocky visit to America, said he was asked strange questions by the US authorities. SRK, who has recently finished shooting in the US for his film My Name is Khan, was detained and questioned for almost two hours at Newark Airport part of what the US calls “racial profiling” to weed out terror suspects.

The actor further said, “I don’t think I need to be treated specially. I respect the fact that rules need to be followed, I don’t think it was a big deal but I felt they were asking embarrassing and irrelevant questions. On a lighter note the actor, who is known for his witty remarks said he is not in favour of tit for tat policy, but if that happens then he should be allowed to “frisk Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox” on their visit to India. In India there has been outrage at the harassment of a man widely considered an international icon.


Celina Jaitley snubs Sambhavana in public!

Celina Jaitley

Everyone knows what a staunch supporter Celina Jaitley is of gay rights. So it wasn’t a surprise that the face of gay movement in Mumbai showed up at the Gay Pride Parade last Sunday. As it seemed, Celina Jaitley was not the only celebrity at the parade. Bhojpuri actress and Bigg Boss 2 star Sambhavana Seth also made her presence felt at the event. However all did not go well for Sambhavana who was walking with a bunch of friends and apparently felt the mob crowding around her. Mid-Day reports a girl then approached Celina Jaitley, who was in the midst of a private security cordon to accommodate Sambhavana Seth too. And Celina refused.

“I am shocked and appalled by Celina’s behaviour. I did not attend the parade to get publicity or hog the limelight. I was there to support my friends and didn’t even bother getting security for myself. I expected Celina to show some respect towards me as woman, if not as a colleague. She denied me entry into her area not once, but thrice,” Sambhavana Seth was quoted by the paper as having said. The Bhojpuri star also claims that after Bigg Boss 2, Celina had once walked up to her and told her how entertaining she was. Interestingly Celina claims to have never known Sambhavana Seth. “I don’t know how she looks like and I didn’t even know she was there so how could I ignore her security.

Also there were enough policemen around to take care of those marching so she could have approached them for help. There was no way any woman could get mobbed or manhandled since it was a gay parade,” she said. Defending her decision to hire security personnel, Celina Jaitley said that she had done so because she had been receiving threats. “If she (Sambhavana) was really concerned about security, she should’ve arranged it for herself,” Celina Jaitley told the paper.

Aishwarya not having swine flu: Amitabh


One has to pay a huge price for name and fame. Being in the public eyes, celebrities have to watch their every step and spell the right word for the media always tries to create gossip and controversy out of them. The Bachchan family is the latest victim. Amitabh Bachchan’s comment on his blog that his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Bachchan (wife of Abhishek Bachchan) was down with flu was blown out of proportion by the media. Many leading media houses reported that Aishwarya was having swine flu.Now, Amitabh has hit back saying that the media reports were rubbish.

That little mention of Aishwarya’s indisposition has created a media hurricane. Headlines screaming she has swine flu have appeared along with other national news. The paucity of sensationalist material has created a herd mentality towards interpreting that gentle whiff of air into a storm of immense proportions. Getting the news out first has precedence over research and authentication. No, she does not have swine flu. She has improved and is much better and ready to resume work by tomorrow or the day after. I would have kept her home for another week,” wrote Amitabh on his blog.

Now, Amitabh has announced clear and loud that Aishwarya is not having swine flu!


Salman again takes a dig at Shahrukh

>> Tuesday, August 18, 2009


Bollywood biggest Cold War needs just small sparks for new flares. Both Shahrukh and Salman miss no chance of taking a dig at each other. Just when the entire Bollywood stayed shocked to Shahrukh Khan’s detention at the Newark International Airport Salman said there was no big deal about it. Salman said that it was a normal security procedure and he had faced it several times in his life. He added that the security measure was actually a very Good thing.

Salman also said that if the detention was considered necessary by US Customs and Border Protection anybody flying to the United States must cooperate with their authorities. Trying to prove his point Salman stressed on the fact that there had been no major attacks since 9/11 because of the stringent security measures adopted in US.

Comeon Salman there are better occasions to take a dig as the question here is not Shahrukh along but all Indians flying to US.


Govt to raise Shahrukh’s detention issue with US

Such incidents involving Indians due to their religion or nationality should not happen. We will not accept it,” said Praful Patel. Khan was detained for about two hours on Saturday morning at the airport in New Jersey, USA, where he had arrived to attend a South Asian related event.

Khan was released after Congress MP Rajiv Shukla spoke to the authorities in the US and the Indian consulate. He was detained after his name flashed on a computer and was asked several questions about the purpose of his visit.

Aishwarya has swine flu?

Aishwarya Rai

Big B who has been spending his time nursing good friend Amar Singh blogged, ‘Jaya left this evening for Mumbai after having spent more than a month by the side of Amar Singh ji during his ailment. I stay back till he is sound enough to travel back. Abhishek is back today from Mani Ratnam’s Ravana shoot in Ooty, now Udhagamandalam its original name.’

The actor however spoke on a serious note saying, ‘Aishwarya has taken ill and is down with chest infection and flu like symptoms. Had a high fever yesterday but is settling down today. Its worrying to be so far away from children and not be there to look after them. Yes, they are mature and married and responsible, but children will always remain children !’

Bollywood stars angry over Khan incident


Bollywood stars have spoken out to express their support for Shah Rukh Khan after he was detained by US authorities because his surname was on a list of common terrorist names.The actor had flown to the US to celebrate Indian Independence Day alongside other Bollywood names such as Katrina Kaif and Kareena Kapoor. Director Karan Johar, who is helming Khan’s forthcoming feature My Name Is Khan, said that he was shocked.What I feel that what happened today [Saturday] is very unfortunate and we need to know why did that happen to him, because I think there is no reason that he had to go through all that.

When asked about the similiarities between the security incident and the premise of his new film, Johar added: “Sometimes it is just bizarre and strange. No one can think that real and reel life can sometime go this parallel. Priyanka Chopra tweeted from her Twitter account: “Shocking, disturbing and downright disgraceful.

Salman’s bro insults Vivek in public

>> Sunday, August 16, 2009


Here’s how Sohail Khan decided to stand up for big brother Salman by publically making fun of Vivek Oberoi at a party on Tuesday evening.Vivek Oberoi must’ve never in his wildest dreams imagined that he would be called a waiter at a party. It’s he who always calls Ganpat for the daaru, right? Well, this time the tables were turned during Ramesh Taurani’s silver anniversary, which had its share of drama with Vivek being the butt of the joke. Salman Khan’s younger brother Sohail Khan didn’t miss the opportunity to cock a snook at Salman’s sworn enemy Vivek Oberoi. It was bhai chaara at its best when Sohail decided to stand up for his bade bhaiya. When Sohail walked in, Vivek was busy sipping a drink. Sohail proceeded further into the hall where the party was gaining momentum. A few seconds later, Sohail saw Vivek standing quietly in one corner. On spotting Vivek, Sohail couldn’t help but remember the enmity between Vivek and Salman and he decided to get cheeky.

An eyewitness says, “Suddenly Sohail called out ‘Oye, Vivek!’. On hearing his name, Vivek looked towards Sohail. Immediately, Sohail looked at a waiter carrying a tray of drinks and again said, ‘Oye, Vivek, zaraa idhar aana’. Vivek’s face fell when he realised that Sohail had humiliated him. The shocked actor simply put his head down and walked a few paces away from where Sohail was standing. Did Vivek want to confront Sohail? And did he control his anger as Salman was shortly expected to make an appearance at the do? We may never know, but one thing is for sure, poor Vivek is still paying for that much publicised press conference he had called in April 2003 complaining that Salman harassed and threatened him over the phone for his relationship with Aishwarya Rai, with whom Salman was romantically involved earlier.

A friend of Sohail (name withheld on request) present at the party confirmed the incident. He laughed and said, “Uske baad Vivek ka chehra dekhne laayak tha.


Shahrukh Khan’s connection with Megan Fox


Now we didn’t know that SRK’s ‘Fox’ connection was so strong. Well, we aren’t talking about the much-publicised multi-crore deal with a foreign studio to distribute My Name Is Khan; we’re talking about the sexy Ms Fox from Hollywood. Apparently Shah Rukh Khan is a huge fan of Megan Fox (tell us which man isn’t), and recently at a press conference to announce the mega tie-up (with the studio and not the hottie Fox, silly) SRK in his usual tongue-in-cheek humour said that the only reason he was tying up with the studio is because they shared a common name with his hot-favourite — Megan Fox.

And he was hoping that they honour the tie-up with an introduction with the actress. That was SRK at his humorous best. Though it won’t be too long before the King Khan will be seen hobnobbing with the Angies-Brads and Toms-Kats of Hollywood. Wotsay?


Preity Zinta’s sports show debut

Preity Zinta

Dimpled beauty Preity Zinta is believed to be making her small screen debut by hosting a sports show.The show, which will be produced by Siddharth Basu’s Synergy Adlabs, will give the actress a career boost. Preity takes a keen interest in sports and is the co-owner of the team Kings XI Punjab. Preity’s show will even feature players of IPL fame ‘King’s Eleven’ team and will telecast on the weekends.The bubbly actress had earlier been approached to judge reality show India’s Got Talent but she refused due to other work commitments.

The small screen is fast becoming a popular alternative for mainstream actors.The trend was started with Amitabh Bachchan hosting India’s version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. Sonali Bendre hosted Kya Masti Kya Dhoom, Salman Khan hosts Dus Ka Dum, whilst Karisma Kapoor is a judge on Nach Baliye.


Mallika’s Sherawat Inglourious moment

Mallika Sherawat

Mallika Sherawat managed an invite to the high profile LA premiere of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, but she had an unusual way of showing gratitude for it. Like all red carpets, this too was an event where what a celeb is wearing is of utmost signifcance, and therefore it is unfortunate that Mallika decided to appear in a strange creation of sheer, and velvet and show a lot of skin.The fashion circle is abuzz with comment on this faux pas. Designer Gaurav Gupta said, “You can’t expect anything spophisticated out of Mallika. I thought the velvet shorts were tasteless…as was the gown.

On the other hand, as always, there are some words of support for Mallika’s boldness. Designer Nikhil Mehra said, “I salute the fact that she manages to always grab more attention even if it by her style choices. It seems the outrage has reached Mallika already and she is regretting her couture choice. Her latest post on Twitter reads, “Big day 2morro! LA City Hall. History will b made:) You’ll b happy 2 know I’m wearing a suit! Dolce n Gabbana, of course.

As chirpy as this tweet sounds, it belies her regret over the decision she announced a few days ago, when she wrote, “Ques of the day: What shud I wear 2 the Tarantino premiere 2nite? Wud sssomething ssscandalous B appropriate?”


Asin’s loyal secret


Here’s a side to Asin that only her family members know. A source said, ‘Asin is actively associated with various NGOs in Kerala and Chennai. She secretly visits these NGOs whenever she finds the time. She loves being actively involved with all the charity work that they do.

Asin personally looks into the disabled and the needy. But Asin does not like to talk about all this. These things are not to be spoken. She has been doing this for years now and has been a regular visitor to the various institutions in Chennai and Kerala. Being philanthropic is Asin’s second nature and she puts her heart and soul in it.”


Football connects Salman and Ranbir

Salman, Ranbir

Salman Khan has definitely found a new friend in Ranbir Kapoor. The hunks got along well, while shooting for their films Veer and Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year, respectively at Mehboob Studios, apparently they didn’t just have a casual chat over lunch. Sources have it that Salman invited Ranbir to join him for a football match this Independence Day while they were chatting at Mehboob Studio.

Ranbir, who is a huge football fan, is obviously very excited.The actor who plans to spend the day playing football with his friends has also asked younger brothers, Arbaaz and Sohail to invite their friends.Expected to join the Khans are Ranbir, Dino Morea, Ashish Chaudhary, Vatsal Seth and music directors Sajid-Wajid. Many more people are expected to join the list.

The venue of the match is still unknown but according to sources, it will be held at one of the Bandra grounds.
