Abhishek offered a reality show

>> Friday, July 3, 2009


If reports are true, Abhishek Bachchan will be the latest actor to join the bandwagon of stars who have appeared on or hosted various reality shows. Although nothing much has been said about it, it is speculated that Abhishek will be hosting a reality show, which will be a spinoff of a popular American show.

This is not the first time that Abhi has been offered such a show. Earlier too, he was offered to play the host of a game show where the contestants could win a lot of money. But Abhishek had refused, as there were many other such shows.

He even did not want to be part of any song and dance show and wanted to do something different.
However, he seems to be interested in the present one as the concept is new and it has not been done on Indian television as yet!

Mallika Sherawat

The bold and beautiful, Murder actress Mallika Sherawat is all geared up to sizzle the screen on fire with her latest Hollywood release Hisss with Irrfan Khan. It is heard that Irrfan Khan had clearly said a ‘No No’ to perform certain scenes but the audacious babe Mallika Sherawat didn’t seem to have any problem performing any role for the movie.

However, now it seems like Mallika Sherawat is in the mood of being a little pricey and has chosen to say a ‘No’ to the international music composer Yanni. Mallika Sherawat was suppose to participate in music composer Yanni’s concert in L.A, she said she would participate in the concert only if Yanni composes a song dedicated to her.

Now that’s like a demanding hottie!


First complaint filed against Kareena Kapoor

Kareena Kapoor

Well, yes you read it right! But before you start thinking that after Shiney, it’s Kareena Kapoor’s turn to visit the jail, let us tell you that late producer Jhamu Sughand’s family has filed a complained against Bebo in the IMPPA (Indian Motion Pictures Producers’ Association) and not in the police. According to Sughand family, producer Jhamu Sughand had paid Kareena a signing amount of Rs 10 lakh in the year 2000 for a film, which she’s been refusing to refund, even though she never started shooting for the film.

A source who works with Kareena said, “Well, yes that’s true. A complaint was filed against Kareena day before in the IMPPA by P J Sughandh Production Pvt Ltd. She’s been a little worried since then. After all, 10 lakh is not a small amount. In fact Bebo also received a letter from IMPPA yesterday about the complaint for her comments. But she’s not in town currently, only once she gets back the matter can be solved. Moreover, Kareena is quite a frank person, if she’d really taken Rs 10 lakh from the producer, I’m sure she wouldn’t mind returning it. I wouldn’t want to comment any further on this.”

Now isn’t this funny? We mean Bebo must be earning a fortune and Rs 10 lakh must be nothing for her. Ohh…but how can we forget? Its recession time guys and Rs 10 lakh means a lot to everyone, especially at this point of time. God alone knows whether Bebo had actually taken Rs 10 lakh or not. But if that’s true, very bad bebo! We suggest you refund the amount before Sughand family files a complaint against you in the police and you land up in jail. Because in jail things could really get ugly for a pretty girl like you.


Celina Jaitley’s Gay love gets her emotional

The Delhi high court judgment of making homosexuality legal on July 2 must have as sigh of relief for many homosexuals out there. However, post judgment one person who could withhold herself for expressing her emotions was tinsel town diva Celina Jaitley.

“With great pride and tears I would like to congratulate the entire LGBT community. Homosexuality is now legal in India. Our long battle is won and with pride can the gay walk with their heads held high,” says Celina.

Under Section 377, a law from the British Raj era says homosexuality and unnatural sex is a criminal act. Decriminalizing homosexuality has come as an amendment of this law. Thus, this judgement has become a benchmark in the history of law.

And yes, let me clarify something else. Celina herself doesnt belong to that group!


Imran Khan to display martial arts in ‘Luck’

Kamal Hassan’s daughter Shruti Hassan is making a grand debut with Soham Shah’s ‘Luck’ where she has been paired against Imran Khan. The film also stars Sanjay Dutt, Mithun Chakraborty, Ravi Kissen and Danny Denzongpa in the main villain’s role.

Imran had shown some action packed sequences in ‘Kidnap’ post his romantic role in ‘Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na’, but ‘Luck’ would be an out and out action movie for Imran where he will be seen displaying martial arts.

Imran has just finished his long shooting schedule for the film in Cape Town and the producer had already arranged for his martial arts training sessions long before the shooting schedule. However, Imran had been busy with the promotion of his films and could not go through a proper training. Nevertheless, there was already a special trainer for him on his arrival at Cape Town and Imran left no stones unturned in going through rigorous training in order to get perfection in his action steps. He also worked out a lot on his physique for his role in this particular film. Your browser may not support display of this image.


Ajay Devgan’s generous gift to Bipasha Basu

How far could a producer go in taking care of the wishes of the leading lady of his film? Well, he could at least gift a new mobile phone. This is exactly what producer Ajay Devgan has done for Bipasha Basu who has just finished shooting for Ajay Devgan’s comedy ‘All The Best’ in Goa this week.

Bipasha had worked really hard with most sincere efforts for Ajay’s film. She not only worked late at night and early in the mornings, she also kept the phone switched off during the shooting thus cutting off from everyone including beau John Abraham who has hurt his legs. Bipasha also agreed to do an additional role in ‘All The Best’ without extra charges. When Ajay came to know that Bips wanted a Blackberry phone, he thought it would be just the right move to show his appreciation for her dedication.

Says the actress, “Yeah, Ajay knew I wanted it. In fact it was he who got me interested in. It is actually a gift in appreciation for working long hours and changing at lightning speed between shots when we had loads of work to finish. Ajay is a fabulous producer and co-star.”

Bipasha is all ga-ga for her new phone and says, “I love it! I’m going totally crazy with it. Though I’ve no numbers on it and am trying to figure it out, I just can’t get enough of it.”


Katrina:I don’t need to show leg to win notices


Katrina is riding high after the success of her flick New York and is quite happy with her performance.

She says, “At least they can’t say my latest film is doing well because Katrina Kaif wore a short skirt. I don’t need to show leg to win notices.’’

Katrina doesn’t like when she is called a lucky mascot, she says,“Saying I’m just lucky kind of annihilates all the hard work that I have put into my films.It also derides the capability of my directors. A script makes a film work, a lot of hard work goes into getting the right script, and to just attribute a film’s success to my good-luck is not right.’’

Folks what do you think? Is New York Katrina’s best performance till date?

Celebs feel happy and gay


Bollywood celebrities are happy that finally Article 377 has been nullified and homosexuality is legalized in India. Check out their reactions

John Abraham:I think it’s a step in the positive direction and I am personally quite happy that the high court has finally given equal rights to everyone — whether he is a homosexual or a heterosexual. I think in a democratic country like India, where right to equality is a constitutional right, it was very important to give homosexuals their due. The government was also very empathetic to the fact that they should be treated equally.

Aamir Khan: I welcome the decision of the Delhi high court in nullifying Article 377. I very much support the right of every individual to live the way that he or she chooses. As a society we should move towards being inclusive and respectful of our differences

Suneet Verma(Fashion Designer):I came out in the open about my sexuality from a young age. I never feared that I’d be ridiculed. How could I say otherwise, when my homosexuality was in my DNA. I meet young people who are similar, on the crossroads of deciding what their sexuality is — I find them easily disturbed, depressed and sad. If they’re not strong, they become alcoholics. They’re scared to face reality

Celina Jaitely:‘I have been receiving threats from radical and cultural groups. But I was simply standing for the fundamental right of a human being, so what if he or she is a homosexual.There are many people in the film industry who are from the sexual minority and they will now be able to come out in the open.Some of the people who have touched my lives were homosexuals. I owe a lot to them.

So folks are you happy with homosexuality being legalized in India?


Imran Khan: Shruti aint my sister


Imran Khan is all set to romance his childhood friend and debutant Shruti Hassan in upcoming flick Luck and both insists they are just good friends.

When Shruti was quizzed whether she took Imran as her brother, she said, “Let’s not get into the brother sister relationships. We have been friends for the last so many years that I have lost count. We are romancing each other in the film so just keep to that. One can’t romance a brother, in fact the thought itself is repugnant.”

Imran also reacted in the same way saying, “Don’t use the word sister, it sounds horrible. We are more of friends. One can’t romance a sister. It’s sounds very repulsive.”

Well Imran’s girl Avantika might not be happy with this statement


Saif to work on his dancing


Saif Ali Khan has finally admitted that he is really bad in dancing department and needs to work on his dancing alot more.

He says, “I guess I was in denial. But after seeing how well Kareena dances and how clumsily I managed some steps for Love Aaj Kal, I made up my mind that I needed to learn the Bollywood dancing.Right after the release of Love Aaj Kal, I’m going to be taking a full course.”

Saif praises Kareena’s dancing skills and says, “She’s very good at dancing. And it’s about time I pulled up my socks. I had to do 75 retakes for one step. I am just fed up of saying I’m a bad dancer and I need to do something about it now. Race 2 will have a couple of really groovy item songs. It is a weakness in my repertoire. “

Saifoo, Bebo also was a bad dancer few years back but ace dancer Shahid Kapoor helped her with Bollywood dancing and now you also need some good female dancer by your side – I recommend Saroj Khan
