SRK gears up for daring in ‘Don 2′

Director Farhan Akhtar and producer Ritesh Sidhwani have no two thoughts that their sequel ‘Don 2’ will be a grand and extraordinary flick in terms of action, locales and grandeur. The film will be shot in Dublin where no Indian film has been shot till date. Though there is no double role for SRK this time, he will be performing daring and breathtaking stunts this time. But for this, his shoulder surgery could pose a problem. So, SRK has given his dates in 2009 for Karan Johar’s ‘My Name Is Khan’ which does not require much physical stamina. He has decided to start the shoot for ‘Don 2’ in May 2010 in Ireland and Berlin. Contrary to the rumors Priyanka Chopra is very much there in the sequel.

Producer Ritesh Sidhwani confirms this saying, “We’re very much going ahead with the original cast Shah Rukh, Priyanka, Boman Irani, Arjun Rampal and Om Puri. Only those who died in the original won’t return, obviously.”

He adds, “We’re shooting Don 2 in Dublin. No Indian film has been shot there. We want to make sure that the sequel goes ahead of the first film. While the first part was a remake the sequel is an original script and would be much tougher to film for Shah Rukh and Farhan.”


A quiet and secret wedding for Antara Mali

If you were wondering why Ramgopal Verma’s sensational search Antara Mali went into oblivion, you have now an answer to it. The actress was busy in her romance with Che Kurien, the editor of GQ magazine, which has finally culminated in a closely kept secret marriage.

The couple had kept their relationship under so many wraps that not even a single gossip column got a sniff of what was going on between the two. Even the marriage which took place on Friday evening was a hush-hush affair without any flashes or media persons.

Che who has been associated with organizations like Reuters, Time Out Mumbai and The Indian Express, prior to him joining GQ has reportedly flown off with his gorgeous lady love to an undisclosed destination for honeymoon.

Though any attention or interference is obviously unwanted by the couple, still our best wishes will always be with them.


Celina Jaitley upset with her co-star’s publicity stunts

Celina Jaitley has always been known as a bold, outspoken and daring Bollywood actress who does not hesitate to stand up against anything wrong. So, when her co-star Abhimanyu Singh decided to bag in some publicity at her cost, it was quite expected that the actress flew into a rage and decided to retort back.

Abhimanyu is a newcomer who is acting opposite Celina in a thriller directed by Jagmohan Mundhra and has been giving his excuses and take on his alleged linkup with the actress. He went ahead to give an interview about how upset he was to read about his link-up with Celina.

Celina, on the other hand, feels that the question and topic of this linkup is nothing but the brainchild of Abhimanyu himself who is doing this to get some cheap publicity. An angry Celina said, “”What link-up is he talking about? Who linked him with me except himself? This is the first time I’ve heard about this so-called link-up.”

She adds, “This is a perennial problem. You are nice to a co-star and he decides to repay your kindness by planting cheap stories. Recently, it happened to me when a co-star, who’s a dear friend, whom I don’t want to name, gave out a story about how he ‘manhandled’ me on the sets. I didn’t react because all said and done, he’s a dear friend and a name in his own right. But Abhimanyu is a talented actor and I was just being nice to him as a co-star.”

Celina can barely control her anger and expresses her disappointment saying, “Next time I’ll think twice before being nice to a co-star. But it’s sad to see actors, established or not-so-established using their co-star’s name for publicity. They take advantage of my single status and friendly nature. But do they realize how such sleazy whispers could jeopardize my prospects of finding love?”

She also sent an SMS to Abhimanyu Singh which read, “Abhimanyu, u better stop talking about this so called link up. In the first place there’s no link up, so stop going to the media and crying about things which don’t exist.”


Vijender Singh croons for Mallika Sherawat in ‘Dus Ka Dum’

After winning the bronze medal for India at Beijing Olympics, boxer Vijender Singh was very much in news for Bipasha Basu expressing her desire to go for a date with the hunk and later when Vijender shook a leg with the dusky Bong beauty at ‘Nach Baliye’.

Now, this time the boxer has turned to exercising his vocal chords for yet another sexy actress on a reality TV show. The lucky damsel is none other than Mallika Sherawat and Vijender crooned for her at Salman Khan’s ‘Dus Ka Dum’ show which was shot last month.

Recalls Vijender, “She is from my state Haryana, so I sang a local folk song for her when Salman asked me and she couldn’t stop laughing at that. It was fun to interact with her.”

Vijender also said that he was surprised by Salman’s knowledge of Indian boxing.

I was amazed that Salman knew so much about boxing and our boxers. He was very nice and we cracked a lot of jokes. Contrary to his media image, he came across as a good person,” the impressed boxer said.

Meanwhile, we wonder that after Bipasha and Mallika, who would be the next lucky lady and what would the next gesture from the boxer!!


Amrita Rao takes a ‘Shortkut’ to success

‘Shortkut’ may be termed as the re-incarnation for Amrita Rao into a glamorous and sizzling avatar from a petite, girl-next-door image. The gossip columns and journals are abuzz with the sensuality she oozes in the promos of the film. Amrita, by far had kept away from skin-show but finally she has realized that if she aspires of success in the glamour world, she has to take the ‘Shortcut’ of being bold and sexy. And her realization does show in the sizzling hot promos of the film.

The film is a light-hearted comedy dealing with the ups and downs in the life of two con artists, Shekhar (played by Akshaye Khanna) who is a struggling director and Chandu (played by Arshad Warsi) who despite lacking in talents manages to make it big in the tinsel town after she steals Shekhar’s prized script.

Amrita Rao plays the role of Mansi, Shekhar’s love interest who later becomes his wife and what follows is confusion, clash of egos and humorous sequences when Shekhar gets to direct Chandu, the superstar.
