Bollywood Gossip - I don't mind playing a lesbian says Priyanka
Wednesday, November 19, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : Bollywood Actress Priyanka Chopra seems to be getting bolder by the day. Whether it be her look in her last films, or the characters and the kind of films she is opting for, she seems to be eyeing the numero uno crown. And no, no dumb glam-doll kind of roles for her, she has made that pretty clear through her no-nonsense interviews in the recent past. She made a point on gay rights too when she told us in a recent chat that they have equal rights to live a dignified life. And now, the actress gives out yet another statement - that she has no qualms playing a lesbian character if offered. After all, according to Piggy Chops sexual preference is a matter of personal choice. "Why not, I would definitely play a lesbian role, provided the film has a good script and the role demands so," says Chopra when asked if she'd accept such a role now that both her last films – 'Fashion' and 'Dostana' - have a gay factor in them.

We have seen men playing gay characters many a time in Bollywood films but women doing the role of a lesbian have been rare. Perhaps the only film that most of us would recollect (or not) is the Eesha Koppikhar- Amrita Arora starrer 'Girlfriend' that ended up in controversies for some bold scenes and also bombed badly at the box-office.

But with Priyanka Chopra willing to play a lesbian character, the million dollar question is, who among the top actresses will play a lesbian partner to her? Certainly not Kareena Kapoor, given their not-so-great rapport and Priyanka may not want to pair up with Katrina Kaif for her non-existing acting skills! That leaves us with Kangana Ranaut, but rumours have it that the two did not get along so well on the sets of 'Fashion'. So we asked Priyanka herself who would be her preferred choice, and she shot back, "How can I decide, that's up to the filmmakers." Well, we leave it up to the filmmakers too. Any names, guys?

Bollywood News - Dostana's special screening for gays
Bollywood News : Harish Iyer is glad he saw Dostana not surprising as the film helped Harish open up about his sexuality to his 13-year-old sister.

Click here for Dostana Photo Gallery"I took my sister for the film and at the end of the film I told her that I was gay. For a moment there was complete silence and then she asked me are you gay like Abhishek or John?," said Harish Iyer, Event Manager.

Unlike many others who saw this laugh riot, Dostana left Shobha Joshi feeling emotional. She identified completely with Kirron Kher's character in the film who plays Abhishek Bachchan's mother.

Shobha's gay son has found his partner in the United States. "I was very happy when my son found his life partner. In fact I am very attached to him now. I feel like my family is complete now," said Shobha Joshi, housewife.

With constant feedback of how many people have been touched by the film director Tarun Mansukhani feels overwhelmed.

"It's so overwhelming when you hear so many stories. I'm so happy that I went ahead with this script," said Tarun Mansukhani, Director.

Harish Iyer, Shobha Joshi are not just the two lives that have been touched by the film. As Dostana continues to bring in the crowds, the filmmakers hope it encourages more acceptance and openness with a little laughter along the way.

Bollywood News - Celina turns Stripper!
Wednesday, November 12, 2008
Bollywood News : Bollywood Actress Celina Jaitley's acting skills have always been debatable. In short, in most of her films she's played the dumb bimbo.

All the films where she's been the only leading lady (like 'Janasheen' and 'Khel') have flopped miserably.

Multi -starrers like 'No Entry' and the recent 'Golmaal Returns' have done well but there have also been really terrible ones (with an ensemble cast) of the 'Tom Dick and Harry', 'Shaka Laka Boom Boom', 'Money Hai to Honey Hai' kinds. These horrible fares have only strengthened the belief that she can't act!

So the lady is busy cashing in on her USP-dropping clothes.

The ex Miss India is doing a bold act in the upcoming 'Showman'. Bollywood Actress Celina Jaitley maintains that she loves playing glamorous roles.

The film by Reel Life Productions which is extensively shot in the UK also stars Govinda and Rimi Sen. This looks like one of those mindless films with loads of senseless dhamaal.

She apparently plays a night club stripper in the movie.

She has reportedly been bragging about her role, "I am playing this girl born to an English man and Indian woman. She unfortunately comes from a very poor family background in London. She has grown up to be a stripper in a night club and a con artist. Basically her main aim is to own a night club."

She maintains that it's very different from her pole dancing act in 'Janasheen'.

She says, "There I was a cop who pretends to be a pole dancer. Everyone comes to know at the end of the movie that I am an undercover cop. And here I am again pretending to be a stripper but not one actually. I am just trying to get all the hot girls to work for my club."

Only if this dame had learnt from her mistakes and invested her earnings in an acting course, she could have at least made things a little easier for poor viewer.

Bollywood Gossip - Priyanka is sexy girl next door
Bollywood Gossip : Tarun Mansukhani is mighty pleased with the kind of response he is getting for the bodies that Bollywood Actors John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra have acquired for Bollywood Movie DOSTANA. Accolodes have been coming in from all quarters as both John and Priyanka ignite the heat in their pursuit for acquiring best bodies in the town.

"While John has worked hard on his physique and made sure that heads (belonging to both women and men) turn around him wherever he goes, I am not surprised since he seems to have been born with a six pack abs.

What amazes me though is the strange body that Priyanka Chopra has", says Tarun Mansukhani, debutant director who is beginning his innings with this Karan Johar production.

How exactly?

"Well, she eats so much and doesn't even work out much. Still, she manages to hold her figure. I guess it's her metabolism that allows her to be this way. With DOSTANA, she could well be termed as a sexy girl next door", smiles Tarun.

Abhishek seems to be just the same though as in all his films, isn't it?

"In fact Abhi too has gone through some transformation as he was still working on DRONA when DOSTANA began. He was in fact the fittest since even when John would be tired, he would push him to get back on his feet and face the camera", reveals Tarun.

But he doesn't seem to be flaunting his body the way John is in the film. Why is that case?

Defends Tarun, "See the film and you would know for yourself. The kind of body type that he is carrying is something like is required for the character. It is truly in conjunction with the film. In any case, Abhi is a completely changed person for DOSTANA and is looking really fantastic." - Joginder Tuteja

Bollywood News - Abhi, John Sizzle Together
Bollywood News : Bollywood Actors Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham's jodi may soon give the Bipasha Basu and John jodi competition. Watching the promos, one can feel the chemistry that's brewing between these two guys.

In fact, in Tarun Mansukhani's Dostana, there is a sequence where Kiron Kher's character dreams that the two are a gay couple. There is even a song to go along with that Maa Da Laadla. In fact, Kiron's character even supposedly imagine them getting married to each other, with John as the groom and Abhishek as the bride. But jokes apart, the two actors share a terrific rapport on screen and it is just a reflection of the comfort level that they share personally. Obviously, the shooting schedule in Miami, gave them enough time to bond with each other. Also, stylistically speaking, they seem to complement each other Abhi with his laid back style and Bollywood Actor John with his pumped up look. So quite the perfect couple one would say. Incidentally, the song, Maa da Laadla has a remixed version as well which will appear in the end.

Bollywood Gossip - Raima Sen has bad taste on men
Monday, November 10, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : Maxim, the hottest magazine in town, proudly displays its latest prized catch in the form of the coolest Sen of Bollywood- Raima, the elder sister of Riya Sen and the proud daughter of the ever-so-beautiful Moon Moon Sen! This issue is indeed a not-to-be-missed issue this season, for the three HOT reasons: Raima, Raima and Raima!

Guys (esp. men) out there, need to wait to be on her wish-list (or even for that matter guest-list), because, Bollywood Actress Raima, in her own words, confesses that she has a pretty bad taste in men.

No wonder then, Maxim guys were generous enough to offer her a lifetime subscription of the mag, post which, a happy Raima said that 'It might help me understand men better'.

Guys at the subscription department please take this as a Top Priority request and get her subscription activated ASAP, not for her sake, but for OUR'S! How selfish can men be, right Raima?

The man who has really made an impact on this Bong-shell's life is none other than the ex-Bond Pierce Brosnan, as Bollywood Actress Raima finds him pretty charming and good-looking! What a wonderful connection this, the Bong-Bond pair!

Even a slight talk about her ex-man Kunal Kapoor, she immediately shuts any further 'probing' by saying 'We do talk occasionally, but it's just that his friend circle is different from mine. And if you want to beat him up, please be my guest". Wooh! Brutal!

All said and done, one must thank God for having blessed us with one of His most celestial angels in the form of Raima Sen! And Maxim of course, for letting us know her better!

Bollywood News - Shahrukh Celebrates his 43rd Birthday
Tuesday, November 4, 2008
Bollywood News : Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan today celebrated his 43rd birthday along with his family and close friends at his suburban bungalow 'Mannat.'

Shahrukh Khan celebrates 43rd Birthday (click here for more photos)

The actor is presently busy with the post production of his home production 'Billo Barber', which is to be released next year, Aditya Chopra's 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' to be released next month and preparation of the second season of the Indian Premiere League (IPL).

The actor has not had a single release since last Diwali. His films 'Om Shanti Om' and 'Chak De India' were huge box office sucesses and had swept all film awards.

His foray into IPL as the owner of Kolkata Knight Riders team did not have a dream run in the T-20 league while his television show 'Kya Aap Panchvi Pass Se Tez Hai' also faired poorly.

The actor, however, took these failures in a positive stride and said that each failure energises him to achieve greater success.

During his absence from the silver screen his 'King' status was virtually challenged by actor Akshay Kumar whose 'Singh is Kinng' got a bigger opening than 'Om Shanti Om'.

Shah Rukh Khan's spat with Salman Khan at Katrina Kaif's birthday bash also hit the headlines recently.

Salman spoke extensively about the fight ruling out patch up. Khan has however said that if Salman was not his friend he was not his enemy either.

Bollywood News - Happy Birthday Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Saturday, November 1, 2008
Bollywood News :


Bollywood Queen Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, considered by many trade analysts as the most bankable female actor in Bollywood, celebrates her 35th Birthday today.

Ash is not in the Hall of Fame for being the bahu of India’s most celebrated superstar. Nor for being wife to one of Bollywood’s most ambitious superstar aspirants. The Bachchan canopy just adds to the allure of this ethereal beauty, who has won for herself the tag of being India’s first international superstar.

Bollywood News - Tusshar Turns Stylist for Makeover Guru Aalim
Monday, October 27, 2008
Bollywood News : Tusshar Kapoor, who plays the character of a mute hair dresser in his upcoming film 'Golmaal Returns' directed by Rohit Shetty and produced by Shree Ashtavinayak Cine Vision Ltd. was recently seen in Hakim's Aalim styling celebrity hair stylist Aalim's hair in role reversal of sorts!!!
Aalim took over Tusshar's hair giving it a funky and stylized look after which Tusshar then took over and went snipping Aalim's hair for which Aalim willingly obliged! Tusshar even handed out a few tips on the techniques used by hair dressers!
Tusshar had prepared for the role by observing Aalim at work. He noticed the way Aalim held the scissors and the cape and set about doing everything.
Says Aalim, "There is a lot of character and style in a hair dresser which Tusshar has successfully incorporated into his character. A successful hair dresser has a sense of humour and personality which Tusshar has essayed very well. Im glad there is someone who is finally playing a hair dresser's role in Bollywood. It's Bollywood's answer to Zohan!!!"
Tusshar who happily snipped away Aalim's hair, admired the way how poised and chilled out Aalim was with his customers and tried to bring out the very same in his role. Always fascinated by the way Aalim constantly changes his own style, Tusshar incorporated the same in the film too for which he sports a different look in the song, and he keeps changing his hair style every couple of scenes.
Says Tusshar, "Im practically playing Aalim in the film. I've copied his style, his look and even have a tattoo of a bird on my arm like Aalim!!! I think Aalim is a great hair stylist and he's a great human being also, and of course he's the best for the stars! "

Bollywood Gossip - Item Girl Rakhi Sawant proposes Salman Khan
Wednesday, September 10, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : Bollywood item girl Rakhi Sawant had macho Bollywood star Salman Khan completely stumped when she unexpectedly popped the question - “Marry me!" - during the grand finale of 'Dus Ka Dum'.
Rakhi Sawant proposes to Salman in 'Dus Ka Dum'!
Rakhi also produced a ring after asking Salman to marry her, according to a press statement.

During the finale of the 'Nach Baliye 3', last year, when Salman was the chief guest, Rakhi had walked away from the sets in a huff.

Rakhi had lost to Sanjeeda Sheikh and Aamir Ali in the show and stormed off the stage with her beau Abhishek Awasthi in tow. Even though Salman followed her to pacify her, she snubbed him and drove off in her car.

Salman was apparently miffed with her after that. But considering that she was invited to his show, Salman seems to have forgiven the controversy queen.

Bollywood Gossip - Good girl Diya Mirza has gone Bad
Tuesday, September 9, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : Known for her Ms Goody Two-Shoes Image Diya Mirza is currently enjoying being bad in Hyderabad.

In Suparn Verma's Acid Factory she plays a girl locked up in a factory with four men with apparently no way out. She's being made to do the most impossible stunts. But Diya doesn't mind. Bollywood Actress Diya Mirza is the only woman in the entire script. "What I enjoy is being one of the boys. I'm doing everything that the boys are being made to do. And that includes all the stunts.

After playing dainty utterly feminine roles I'm enjoying being put on a harness dangling from ropes, jumping from heights, kicking and punching. In spite of my dainty image I've always been a tomboy. "

What Diya enjoys even more is being mean. "My character is bad through and through. No apologies. No justification. She just enjoys being bad.

I like bringing that dark side of me out on screen because there's way I can tap into it in real life. I like the surprise element in my role in Acid Factory. I remember seeing a film with Julia Roberts where she was a schoolteacher by day and quite naughty in the night."

Diya just finished shooting with the Big B in Shoojit Sircar's Shoebite. "Though we were co-stars in Shootout At Lokhandwala we didn't have any scenes together.

In Shoebite most of my vital scenes are with Mr Bachchan. And believe me it was like going to acting school. He taught me one thing I'll never forget.

'To be a good actor you've to be a good listener.' I'm going to follow that mantra, " says the quietly attentive Diya who admits she's an introvert.

"It was hard for me to come out and play the aggressive bad girl in Acid Factory or be part of the goofy comedy in Kunal Vijaykar's Fruit & Nut. I'm basically quiet and shy. I like to read and write."

Diya admits there's no man in her life. "Oh, the amount of men I'm linked with! Where's the time? Sometimes when I see my my friends with their soul mates I do wish I had someone to cuddle. But then I quickly move on to something else."

Bollywood Gossip - Sagarika replaces Esha Deol in Raftaar
Saturday, August 30, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : Among the whole bunch of girls who acted in Chak De India alongside SRK, probably the one who managed to draw maximum eyeballs was Sagarika Ghatge. Sagarika, who played the gutsy character of Preeti Sabarwal, also emerged as the highest goal-scorer in the film.

Now it seems Sagarika has managed to strike a goal in her real life too. The actress has been signed by Percept Picture Company for their film Raftaar (working title). The film is directed by noted ad film maker Shamin Desai. Sagarika will be paired opposite serial-kisser Emraan Hashmi in the film. What is interesting is the fact that the role which Sagarika has been signed for was to be originally played by Esha Deol.

Sarita Patil, Head of feature films at Percept Picture Company, said “Yes we have signed Sagarika for Raftaar. She has replaced Esha Deol as we couldn’t agree on the price. After things didn’t work out with Esha, we had a couple of options in mind and our director Shamin had seen Sagarika’s work in Chak De India and felt she would fit the part. Sagarika’s is a full-fledged lead role opposite Emraan Hashmi.”

The film also stars Neha Dhupia and Aditya Panscholi in prominent roles. Shooting for the film is currently underway in Kuala Lumpur and the film is expected to release sometime early next year (2009).

Bollywood Gossips - Neha Dhupia happy to shun sex symbol tag
Bollywood Gossip : Beauty queen Neha Dhupia was tagged a 'sex symbol' after the portrayal of a prostitute in Julie, but she feels the image is now fading.

"I'm happy with the kind of films I am getting, and, yes, the 'sex symbol' tag that I had got after Julie is fading," Neha, who turns 28 this Wednesday, said.

Recently she was seen doing a variety of roles - she played a homely Gujarati girl in Chup Chup Ke and an ad executive in Delhii Heights. She was also seen in critically acclaimed Mithya and hit gangster movie Shootout At Lokhandwala.

Recently Neha showed her action skills with a few stunts in Akshay Kumar-starrer Singh Is Kinng. Though she managed the action scenes in the film, Neha says she will never take part in a show like Khatron Ke Khiladi.

Neha said: "I wouldn't have done Khatron Ke Khiladi even if I was offered it because it won't challenge me creatively. There is nothing creative about it. It would force me to do stunts and stuff; so I would not do it. "

The actress was in the capital to attend the Blenders Pride Magical Nights Party Tour 2008.

"I am comfortable doing about four films a year. Unless I get burnt out and totally exhausted, I think I will continue doing so," she said.

Asked about her birthday plans, Neha said that she has "no party plans; only work for the day".

"I will be happy if in the morning I get a birthday wish call from my production people instead of a work call. But no party plans yet."

As for her future projects, the young actress, who won the Miss India crown in 2002, is looking forward to a line-up of films including Maharathi, Raat Gayi Baat Gayi, I Am 24, Paying Guest, one Percept Picture Company-produced film with Emraan Hashmi and a yet-to-be-titled film with Priyadarshan.

Bollywood Gossip - Bigg Boss kick-starts with big celebs
Thursday, August 21, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : The second season of TV reality show Bigg Boss will have controversy galore. With politicians Rahul Mahajan and Sanjay Nirupam, notorious British reality TV star Jade Goody and gangster Abu Salem's companion Monica Bedi among many others, the show will make for exciting viewing over the next three months.

Shilpa Shetty

Fourteen contestants including television actors Ketki Dave and Rakhi Vijayan, item girl Sambhavna Seth, actors Payal Rohatgi and Monica Bedi, non-celebrity Elina apart from Jade Goody are part of the female inmates of the Bigg Boss house.

Among the men are model-actor Zulfi Syed, music reality show winner Debojit Saha, MTV Roadies 5.0 winner Ashutosh Kaushik, TV actress Shweta Tiwari's estranged husband Raja Chaudhry, Congress member Sanjay Nirupam, Rahul Mahajan - son of late Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Pramod Mahajan and famous comedian Ehsaan Qureshi.

While all of them will be closeted in a specially designed house for three months under 24-hour surveillance, with no access to telephones or television, Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, who had won the international format of the show Celebrity Big Brother in 2007, will be hosting the show.

Shilpa had emerged winner despite racist remarks in Celebrity Big Brother by Goody, who has now come to India to "change people's perception" about her.

Also, Payal Rohatgi's reported closeness with Rahul Mahajan was also earlier this month, an alleged reason for his break-up with his wife Shweta.

Shilpa herself will appear only in the elimination episodes each Friday, communicating with the contestants through a TV screen. Each week, one contestant will be voted out.

Bollywood News - Amitabh Bachchan thanks Abhinav Bindra
Wednesday, August 13, 2008
Bollywood News : Amitabh Bachchhan, who was in Chicago recently for his Unforgettable World Tour, couldn't help but feel elated after hearing the news of Abhinav Bindra winning a gold at the ongoing Olympics in Beijing.

Bachchan got a tremendous response for his perfromance in Chicago but he says nothing surpasses the happiness of hearing about India's proud moment.

Bachchan expresses his glee on his blog. He writes, " As I stepped out of the venue, media from India informs me about our Gold at the Olympics. The rousing reception at the show was incredible but nothing will be able to top the glory that Abhinav Bindra has brought to the heart of every Indian."

Rejoiced by the news, Bachchan thanks Bindra and adds, " We are so proud of you and so delighted to have made every Indian walk a little taller ! Thank you Abhinav, and more glory and success to you."

Well, right now every proud Indian will happily join Big B in congratulating Bindra, after all as Bachchan quotes a friend, "After almost a century and 2 billion births, an Indian wins his first individual gold at the Olympics".

Bollywood Movies - Bachna Ae Haseeno
Tuesday, August 12, 2008

Bollywood Gossip - Ranbir chooses Bipasha over Deepika
Bollywood Gossip : If you thought love makes a man blind, think again. Neither his fondness for Deepika Padukone nor her place atop Maxim magazine's Hot 100 list can convince Ranbir Kapoor that she is Bollywood's most explosive bombshell. That singular honour, he feels, belongs to Bipasha Basu.

"I think Bipasha is the sexiest actress in the film industry and for me she will remain the sexiest for another 50 years to come. After working with her in Bachna Ae Haseeno, I realise why she's often described as Bollywood's ultimate sex symbol. I can't think of any other girl who deserves the title more than her," he says.

Ranbir is not deterred by the thought of offending his two Bachna Ae Haseeno co-stars Deepika and Minissha Lamba. Though the dashing young actor insists he enjoyed working with all three leading ladies and stole their hearts, he has no intention of reconsidering his choice. "Even when I compare the three of them, Bipasha is still the sexiest," he says.

According to Ranbir: "Bachna Ae Haseeno is an excellent film and I enjoyed the company of all three girls. We were comfortable working with each other and I hope that the film will really do well at the box office."

Although his debut film failed to set the cash registers ringing, Ranbir hopes for better luck this time. "I remember my nervousness when Saawariya was released. I have the same feeling once again. I guess it happens with most actors. And since I am a newcomer in the industry, I feel even more pressure at the time of a film's release," he admits.

Bollywood Gossip - Fans hooked to Singh is Kinng
Sunday, August 10, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : It's Akshay Kumar's biggest release this year making it to the big screen and one reason is because its running at a record number of screens with shows begining as early as 7am in the morning.

What do most people normally do early in the morning? It is generally have their morning tea or read newspaper but this wasn't the case this Friday.

This Friday there was a 7am screening of Singh is Kinng. It's the first time that a film's show has been screened so early in the morning.

There were 85 people who had come to catch Akshay Kumar's Singh is Kinng, first day first show. It was the first of 28 screenings at a Mumbai multiplex. Other multiplexes are screening it as many as 40 times a day.

That means, on an average, there's a screening every 45 mins.

This is first time ever that a Hindi film's carpet bombing theatres in such a big way to maximise first weekend earnings. Often the decider between a hit and flop.

Last year with four successive hits Akshay Kumar laughed his way to the bank. With this release Bollywood's current king seems set to continue his reign

"There are groups of 500-600 people who have completely booked the theatre for the weekend the response is amazing," said Rakesh Sharma, Manager, Cinemax Sion.

And people seem to be just loving Akki Happy Singh. "It was great. Akshay is very funny, Katrina is beautiful."

Well, as far as the box office fate of the film goes, one will have to wait and watch this space.

Bollywood Gossip : Sikh priests to examine Singh is Kinng
Monday, August 4, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : The Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) Monday formed a three-member committee to screen Akshay Kumar starrer Singh is Kinng to see if there Sikhs have been portrayed negatively in the film.

We have formed a three-member committee of experts that will see the movie and based on their feedback further action will be taken, DSGMC president Paramjit Singh Sarna told agencies. The film is slated for release next Friday.

The DSGMC had sought a ban on the movie last Friday for allegedly ridiculing the Sikh community and wrote a letter to Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit asking her to ban the film in the national capital, despite the announcement by the Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC), the apex religious body of the Sikhs, that it was up to the audiences to decide if they wanted to watch the film.

The DSGMC committee has two granthis (priests) Harnam Singh and Surinder Singh and Khalsa college professor Harmeet Singh, an expert on Sikh history.

Various Sikh organisations have voiced their concerns over the film, which is slated for release next Friday.

Sarna said: "The film's promos showed a Sikh character wearing a turban, while sporting a French cut. This is not a positive Sikh image. The screening should not be allowed until its makers make changes in the portrayal of Sikh character."

Friday, August 1, 2008
Bollywood Gossips : Bollywood Actress Neha Dhupia has successfully managed to place herself in the league of hot actors this year! Her Ponds ad with Saif Ali Khan and Priyanka Chopra has been appreciated and so was her bikini shoot for a magazine! Neha Dhupia was also the only Indian actress who Pierce Brosnan had chosen to be a Bond Girl, had he been the casting director of 007, when he was in India!

2008 seems lucky for Neha as she is all set to star opposite Akshay Kumar along with Katrina Kaif in Singh is Kinng. “I play a gangster-girl in the film and the role is very interesting”, said Neha. After Singh is Kinng, Neha will be seen in a thriller called Maharathi, where she will be seen with ace actors like Paresh Rawal, Naseeruddin Shah and Om Puri.

But its not just serious roles that she will be seen doing! She will also be seen in Mukta Arts’ light hearted comedy Paying Guest, where she will be seen working with theatre actor Paritosh Painter. Raat Gayi Baat Gayi will be another fun film which the actor is looking forward to as it has Vinay Pathak and Ranvir Shorey in it to give her company.

“I am really looking forward to all my films and am sure people will like them”, said Neha.

With Neha boldly trying out all different genres we wish her all the best...

Tuesday, July 29, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : If Bollywood Actor Akshay Kumar has a slew of recent hits to boast of then touted as a lucky charm she is the golden girl of Bollywood. An actress who has had countless oppurtunities to celebrate for many more reasons than just her birthday.

Katrina Kaif

"I feel blessed, I've done so many things in life, I have so many wonderful experiences. I am really happy," says Katrina Kaif.

Katrina has got all this year, series of hits, best of brands to endorse and now believe it or not she will now step into the shoes of Aishwarya Rai taking over as brand ambassador for a jewellery brand Ash used to endorse.

And it is not only the stones that the two women have in common, let us not forget that it was the Ash effect that caused the dust up at Katrina's much talked about birthday bash the actress though remains unfazed by the talk surrounding it.

"The best attitude is to live and let live, try and see the light of these things. One shouldn't give much importance to all thse things. This phase will pass," she says.

Now she is eagerly awaiting a new release or two and this time again she and Akshay aim to prove that their Singh will be King .

She's got the brands, a solid track record at box office and a fanbase growing daily all we can say is with the stones or without this ones determined to dazzle.

Bollywood Gossip - Vidya Balan sets off for a Vacation
Sunday, July 27, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : After the release of her latest film, Kismat Konnection, actress Vidya Balan is believed to be taking it easy. The actress is believed to be on a vacation for the next couple of months.viydya

But this is not a planned vacation. In fact, it is a vacation which has been forced on the actress. The actress's next two films, Chenab Gandhi and Pa, do not begin their shooting schedules till another two months. She also has a Vishal Bharadwaj film, which too will begin shooting around September. Besides these few assignments, Vidya hasn't signed any other project. So, till the shoot begins, she has no other option but to sit at home and chill. But she is believed to be putting her vacation to good use. Besides making burkha clad trips to cinema theatres to watch her won film, she is also sitting at home and reading scripts. The actress who is now nine films old in the industry, admits that she was quite nervous before the release of Kismat Konnection. It is for the first time that she rung up people asking them about how they liked the film. Maybe this anxiety has something to do with a certain Shahid Kapur. Incidentally, the director of the film, Aziz Mirza is least bothered by reports on the film, good or bad. He is currently chilling at his farmhouse.

"Jaane Tu..." rakes in Rs.150 mn first week!
Saturday, July 19, 2008
Bollywood News Mumbai, July 18 (IANS) : Romantic flick "Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na" has broken the dry spell at the box-office, grossing nearly Rs.150 million in the first week of its release.

This revenue figure could be because of the high-ticket prices in the multiplexes but it is nonetheless a windfall for a movie starring mostly newcomers.

A joint venture of Aamir Khan Productions and PVR Cinema, the film is Aamir's nephew Imran's debut vehicle.

Even for Genelia D'Souza, who earlier appeared in three Hindi movies, "Jaane Tu..." is her first Bollywood hit in a leading role.

The movie's whopping success has firmly consolidated her position in the industry, shadowing her rising career down South.

Incidentally, the box-office dominance of "Jaane Tu..." has created worries for producers whose movies are due for release.

Last week, producer Jagdish Sharma's "Good Luck" and director Mani Shankar's "Mukhbiir" could not be released in many of the multiplexes as the management suddenly increased the additional screens available there for "Jaane Tu..." keeping public demand for the movie

Bollywood Gossip : Actress-cum-yoga guru Shilpa Shetty is now learning to play the violin for her role in Sunny Deol's The Man

"I have to play the violin in The Man and to make it look real, I am taking lessons. Trust me, it is very difficult to play the violin. I am having a tough time. My instructor tells me that it is the most difficult instrument to play and he is quite right," said Shilpa in a press statement.

Bollywood Gossip - Akshay Kumar jumps off Bangkok’s tallest building
Friday, June 27, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : Could there ever be a better host for the Indian version of 'Fear Factor' than Akshay Kumar, the Bollywood synonym for daredevilry?
Akki flew to Bangkok, the city that taught him a few lessons in Oriental Cuisine, to show Thailand what he had learnt in Bollywood. He jumped off the tallest skyscraper of the city, and skated all the way down through thin air!
This Khiladi stunt was caught on camera and will be part of the promotional film on the Indian version of ‘Fear Factor’, to be aired on COLORS TV, premiering in July 2008. Shot on the lines of a Bollywood movie trailer, the promo flick gives a foretaste of what is to hit the small screen as ‘Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi’.

Says Akshay: “With something as crazy and exciting like ‘Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi’ you have got to start at Bangkok. I truly enjoyed being on skate board, straddled between two of the tallest buildings in Thailand - just to give a preview of the show to my viewers. It sounds easy on paper, just take a look for yourself and enjoy the ride with me. You don’t have to be a daredevil to enjoy this show - it’s packed with me of course, but also with love, friendships, deadly stunts and a lot of fun.”
Rameet Arora, Marketing Head, COLORS, says, “This film for ‘Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi’ represents drama that will be unmistakably different. Setting the tone for a ‘never seen before’ campaign, you can look forward to a unique synergy between Bollywood and television. And that too, with India’s favourite action hero & television entertainment. It’s an un-missable start.”

‘Fear Factor - Khatron Ke Khiladi’ takes the game show to the highest level of physical and mental challenge, making it more gritty and edgy than ever before. Another attraction of ‘FEAR FACTOR - Khatron ke Khiladi’ is going to be the 13 Bollywood beauties, who’ll compete with each other, to be the last-lass-standing: Yaana Gupta, Aditi Govtrikar, Pooja Bedi, Sonali Kulkarni, Anita Hasnandani, Meghna Naidu, Tapur Chatterjee, Tupur Chatterjee, Nethra Raghuraman, Anjana Sukhani, Dipannita Sharma, Vidya Malvade and Urvashi Sharma. The show will be shot entirely in South Africa, over a period of one month and is being produced by Endemol India, one of India’s finest production houses.

Bollywood Gossip - Amisha in a sizzling number for Thoda...
Friday, June 6, 2008
Amisha Patel is going all glam for her next release Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic. "You are going to see a much more of me" says the actress who plays a character called Mallaika in the film.

"My character is extremely entertaining, but she is very different from me. I'm educated and I've never been a giggly girl," says Amisha Patel.

"Even her body language and mannerisms are very different. It was difficult as I had to learn how to act like an airhead bimbo," she adds.

Amisha also has a sizzling number with Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan in the film.

"A lot is happening in the song as it's the turning point in the film. It's the first film in the history of Indian cinema that has a song that has lip sync under water," she says.

Amisha Patel is certainly having a ball being one of the Yash Raj women.

"Yash Raj has always presented its women so well, right from the time of Yashji's films," she says.

That is true with everyone going ga-ga over Kareena Kapoor's look in the Bollywood Movie Tashan, however the film didn't go down well at the box-office, hope that is not the case with Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic.

Bollywood Gossip - Katrina skirts another controversy
Friday, May 30, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : Katrina Kaif has just returned from Egypt after shooting a song with her favourite co-star, Akshay Kumar, for the keenly awaited Singh Is Kinng.

And while Katrina is delighted with the way the song has shaped up, she is even more charmed by Egypt and its culture.

"It's among the most beautiful countries I have visited - the pyramids, the temples and the landscape are absolutely exotic. I even enjoyed the barbecue dinner on a boat on the Nile. We shot in a number of places and I've come back with fond memories of my trip."

Ask her about the song she shot, Jee Karda, she smiles, "Wait and watch. It should be on air later this month. We shot at 4am every day to capture the light and it was scorching. To keep cool we would stay in shades and sip fruit juice or mint tea."

But her recent tour to the African land almost got into trouble when local police reportedly arrived at the scene and objected to Katrina’s outfit that exposed her bare legs while she was shooting against the backdrop of the great pyramids along with Akki.

Egypt is predominantly a Muslim nation and revealing outfits are not accepted in public places.

According to reports director Anees Bazmee, who was determined to shoot at the pyramids, managed to get the matter resolved with the help of others. And another skirt controversy was successfully skirted.

Bollywood Gossip - When Abhishek talked about sex
Bollywood Gossip : Abhishek Bachchan has an amzing sense of humour.

On the sets of Sarkar Raj, when Ramu told little B to speak to villagers convincingly about any subject, while the actual dialogue would be dubbed later in the recording studio, he chose to talk about sex.

As soon as the director called ‘action’, Abhi began to give some sex education to the villagers. He spoke about the process of reproduction, the safety measures and also different positions of making out.

All was well until the villagers, who were instructed to look serious, started laughing aloud when they finally understood what Abhishek was telling them. They all tried hard not to laugh.

Ramu, who was at a distance, didn't know what was going on and why everybody was suddenly laughing when they were not supposed to. He immediately called 'Cut' and walked up to them.

That’s when Ramu realized that Abhishek is in his jocular mood again.

Bollywood Gossip - Meri aunty ke hoth gulabi hain
Bollywood Gossip : Log kahte hain ki meri aunty ke gaal chamakdaar hain...Lekin main kahta hoon ki meri aunty ki muskaan mazedaar hai...

Log kahte hain, ki meri aunty badi cool hain.. Lekin main kahta hoon, ki meri aunty toh gulaab ka phool hain...

Inki baaten itni meethi jaisa sandesh hai...Yeh dil se hain bholi...lekin dimag se Paanchvi Paas se tez hain"

Amazed at Shah Rukh's poetry, she begins the game of answering questions from the first to the fifth grade. How far does she go in winning the prize money of Rs 5 crores?

It's time for another contestant and once again, it's a lady from Kolkatta. Thirty-three-year-old Rumana Saif is an administration executive. As she takes the challenge to face the simple yet tricky questions from first to fifth grade, Shah Rukh comments that the buzz is around 'Kareena Saif', but Rumana Saif is something which he had never heard before.

Shah Rukh is at his humorous best and makes Rumana feel really special and flirts with her. Rumana, an ardent fan of Shah Rukh, can't believe that she is standing so close to her dream man. She bends forward to touch him to believe if its indeed reality or a dream.

Rumana reveals her story of having been through an unsuccessful marriage and her hardships being a single parent.

Rumana wishes to buy her son all the luxuries in life with the prize money she earns. The episode gets emotional as she completely breaks down as she narrates her life's story in front of Shah Rukh.

But its minutes before Shah Rukh entertains her and makes her forget her pain as she takes the test. He plays the chirpy track 'Pretty Woman' which lights up Rumana's face with joy!

Bollywood Gossip - Show skin, create row & get famous says Tanushree
Wednesday, May 14, 2008
Bollywood Gossips : Miss India 2004, Tanushree Dutta, surely made a rollicking start in Bollywood with films like Chocolate and Aasique Banaya Apne.

The dusky girl made it clear with her first film itself that she is going to give tough competitions to Bolly-gals like Mallika Sherawat, Riya Sen, Malaika Arora Khan who are known for their bindaas exposure.

The model-turned actress has surely made a name for herself in the short career of hers.

But the charming girl doesn’t look satisfied with her career growth and hopes to act in better films in the future. “I want to work with big banners and settle down properly in Bollywood by doing some good films,” nags Tanushree.

Now, it’s really an insult that someone is a part of Bollywood and is not honoured with any controversy. Recently, the young actress was all over the news after she blamed senior actor Nana Patekar of getting too close to her comfort while shooting for an item number in Horn Ok Pleassss.

But as it always happens in Bollywood, the truth behind the incident never got clarified and was been dumped after few days.

Tanushree calls herself a lazy girl, especially when she isn’t shooting. When at home, she pampers herself with a prolonged bath, treats herself to a 7 course meal, enjoys a siesta and wakes up only to have dinner or to hit the multiplexes.

The glam-doll would next be seen in Warner bros. Saas Bahu Aur Sensex. Whatever be the future of the film, Tanushree’s fan would at least be happy seeing few more skin shows of this gorgeous babe.

Hope, she doesn’t move lazy in showing her skin also, as it may lead her to lose few fans!

Bollywood Gossip - Ash Admirer
Bollywood Gossip : At the unveiling party of Ram Gopal Varma's new film Sarkar Raj, the director showered his film's leading lady Aishwarya Rai Bachchan ( who was in Miami with hubby Abhishek Bachchan celebrating their first wedding anniversary) with compliments galore.

He announced:"When we firs approached Aishwarya Rai, I wasn't conscious of the fact that she is a good actor because her beauty overwhelms her brilliant performances. So I had a certain arrogance in me, I thought I would make her perform. But I was surprised."

Ramu further recalled:"There is a particular shot in Sarkar Raj where Amitji is explaining something to her. Due to some complex camera movements, we had to shoot nine takes. What is amaising is that in all the nine takes, she looked as if she was listening to Amitabh for the first time. Only a director can recognise this as an amazing quality in an actor. I became a big fan of her acting after that."

Bollywood Gossip - Vijay Mallya rescues Katrina Kaif
Wednesday, May 7, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : Britain-born Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif, who is the face of Vijay Mallya's Indian Premier League (IPL) Bangalore Royal Challengers cricket team, missed her flight to Bangalore but the business tycoon's jet came to her rescue.

"I was shooting in Goa and had to catch a flight to Bangalore for the IPL match on Saturday. But I missed my flight. Fortunately, Vijay Mallya had me flown in his jet or I wouldn't have been able to make it," Katrina said.

"That's one of the advantages of being the brand ambassador for Mallya's team. You know they'll make sure you'd reach where you are required to, in spite of maddening schedules," added the actress.

Katrina Kaif is Cricket Fan !!!! That adds one more bollywood actress being a cricket fan ;-)

"Everyone in London is crazy about the game. So I kind of grew up with the game. Here in India too it's a passion. So when Mallya asked me to be their brand ambassador, I agreed. I've known him for years and can't say no to him. We shot the music video with Sanjay Gupta and it was great fun," she said.

She loves watching the IPL games and cheering for her team.

"The only thing I hate is to have fans approaching me, not because I don't like to connect with fans. In fact, I love it. But while watching a match, I don't want to be disturbed. People tend to get in the way when the matches are on," explained Katrina.

The lovely lass from London, who gave four hits last year, including Namastey London and Welcome, is now learning to connect with the public.

"Whether it's the IPL matches or my songs or dances for movies, I think I've really started having fun only now after Race. I've never enjoyed my dancing so much. Yeah, I think I'm finally unwinding both on screen and on stage. I recently started enjoying dancing on stage. I realised that at the Zee awards. Earlier, I had neither the songs nor the confidence. Now I guess I've a bit of both," Katrina said.

Bollywood Gossips - Aamir Khan gives nephew moral support
Tuesday, May 6, 2008
Bollywood News : Imran Khan has been feeling pangs of nervousness before his first promo of Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na, which hits the marquee on this Sunday. He called Aamir Khan to share his nervousness, during the conversation Aamir Khan realized that his nephew was nervous and asked him to take the next flight to Hyderabad on Tuesday.

Aamir Khan Photo Gallery

Aamir Khan is going through the most grueling schedule of Ghajini in Hyderabad. Even with a 14-hour day shift, he took time out to spend most of his time with his nephew Imran Khan between the shots. People, who know Aamir, would know how unusual this is, as when he is shooting he likes to be completely involved in his shooting and not meet lot of people. In fact, director AR Murgadoss was also seen talking and chatting with Imran Khan.

During the conversation, Imran admitted to Aamir that he was worried and a bit nervous about his first photo shoot. So promptly, he called Avi (Avinash Gowarikar) to Hyderabad to have the photo shoot done in Hyderabad next day, where he could be around to give moral support.

Source close to Aamir Khan says, "It was reminiscent of Aamir Khan's launch himself, during the days of QSQT…he would be going through nervous phases and both Naseer Sahib and Mansoor Khan would sit with him and talk to him. Aamir has been through the earlier days of first promo going on air and knows how it feels."

Bollywood Gossip - "I'm not playing Mujibur Rahman" says Amitabh Bachchan
Monday, May 5, 2008
Amitabh Bachchan [ Click here for more pictures ]

Exclusive Bollywood Gossip
: A report in a section of the press stating that Bollywood Actor Amitabh Bachchan would be playing the role of Bangladesh's founding father Sheikh Mujibur Rahman has the mega-star completely stumped, puzzled, and amused.

"I've no idea what all this is about. Lots of media persons have been calling since yesterday. I can't say where and how this report originated from. But it is not true," said the Big B from London on Saturday morning just before he boarded his flight back to Mumbai. Not only does the report state with absolute authority that the Big B plays Mujbir Rahman, it also quotes the film's producer as saying that the rest of the Bachchan clan, Abhishek and Aishwarya, will also feature in this bio-pic.

Continues the Big B, "I've no clue about this. There's nothing to it. At least not as far as I'm concerned. I'm hearing all this talk about this film for the first time." This isn't the first time that producers have made premature or unfounded announcements about the Big B's presence in a project. But it would have been interesting to watch him play a historical character. In all these years of superstardom, the Big B has never played a biographic figure. The closest he came to it was in Ram Gopal Varma's Sarkar where his role had shades of Bal Thackeray.

Bollywood Gossip - Multiplex say "NO" Tashan
Bollywood Photo Gallery > Tashan
Sizzling Kareena Kapoor in Tashan


Bollywood Gossips : Yash Raj Films' much-awaited action thriller Tashan has opened in a select few cinema halls.

Multiplexes are waging a battle on who gets the most the distributor or the producer.

PVR Cinemas and Inox in Mumbai are not screening the film. In Delhi too mulitplexes like Adlabs and PVR have said a straight no.

"We had asked Inox, Fame and Adlabs multiplexes to give 60 per cent of the revenue collected in the first week. Tashan is a film that will easily earn enough revenues for the multiplexes and us. I don't think the increase in revenue percentage is too high," said Sanjeev Kohli, CEO of Yash Raj Films.

Amitabh Vardhan, CEO, PVR Cinemas, said: "As of now we don't have the film. As far as the revenue sharing is concerned, I would not like to comment on that."

Arijit Dutta, a Kolkata-based exhibitor-distributor, is more forthright.

"I don't understand why we have to pay higher revenue when the business in Kolkata is 10 times less than other metros. This year revenue has been hiked by 12 percent here, whereas Mumbai and Delhi multiplexes were asked to pay only two per cent more," said Dutta.

Till Friday morning none of the parties had reached any agreement and the film has opened in only single screen theatres. Apart from them, the Waves and Spice multiplexes are having shows of the film.

The Krishna Acharya directed film starring Kareena, Saif, Akshay and Anil Kapoor is an edge of the seat thriller.

Bollywood Gossip - Kareena's dream finally come true
Tuesday, April 22, 2008

Kareena Kapoor

Bollywood Gossip : It’s finally happening. Bollywood has put together the dream team of Kareena Kapoor and Aamir Khan for Raj Kumar Hirani’s film Idiots. Kareena, who has signed on three big projects lately, including Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kambakht Ishq with Akshay Kumar and Renzel d’Silva’s untitled film with beau Saif Ali Khan, is thrilled to be working with Aamir. “It’s a dream,” she exclaimed, “we recently came close to working on two films together, Vishal Bhardwaj’s Mr Mehta And Mrs Singh and Mani Ratnam’s Lajjo, but it’s finally happening now.”

She is also looking forward to doing another film with Saif after Omkara and Tashan. “Renzil’s film has a stunning script. And I’m doing something in it I’ve never done before,” she said, declining to elaborate. But she added, “It’s important to keep our personal and professional lives apart. Saif and I need to concentrate on our individual careers. There’s no marriage for me for the next five years.”

As for Tashan, she’s worked really hard on the film and is hoping her hard work pays, because “it wouldn’t hurt to have another hit after Jab We Met”. Right now, she is at peace with herself. She’s looking fab and feeling great. “People are saying I want to be like Victoria Beckham. I think the talk started when Saif got himself tattooed with my name. David Beckham had done the same for Victoria. But I’m proud of my sculpted body. Why should I want to be like anyone else? I look no different from the way I looked earlier. I guess I’m just happy in life, and that shows,” said Kareena.

Thats Right!!

She is young, fun, stylish, successful and has a mind of her own.” A lot of effort went into perfecting Bipasha’s look for the photo shoot, but at the end of it, the actress was thrilled with the results.

“Grazias means ‘grace’. So, I’m trying to be as graceful as possible,” Bipasha smiles while saying. “But when you have a good team of people — the stylist, photographer, make-up artist, etc. — they definitely make you look interesting.” Check out Bips’ striking new look at the photo shoot.

Bollywood Gossip - Abhi-Ash to celebrate wedding anniversary in Miami
Monday, April 14, 2008
Bollywood News : Bollywood Actors Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be in Miami for their first wedding anniversary next week. Not that they planned so. 'It just happened,' says Amitabh Bachchan.

'Abhishek is shooting in Miami for 'Dostana' on their marriage anniversary. And Aishwarya is going to be with him,' said Amitabh Bachchan.

'We'll get them by a new technology called skyscape to speak from Miami to mediapersons in Mumbai at the launch of Sarkar Raj - which happens to be on the same evening as their wedding anniversary,' he said.

'Sarkar Raj' director Ram Gopal Verma says it was just a coincidence that the unveiling of his film will take place the same day.

'I didn't even remember it was Abhishek and Aishwarya's wedding anniversary on April 20. We decided to do the First Look party of Sarkar Raj on this day because it was six weeks before the release,' said Ram Gopal Verma

'It's just a coincidence. I don't keep track of anyone's birthdays and anniversaries, not even mine.'

Ramu is excited about something else too. 'This is the first time the actors of an Indian film will be connected to the media via satellite. We're doing it through a technology known as skyscape. I think it's very exciting to reach out by modern technology in this way. Aishwarya and Abhishek will be live from Miami in Mumbai.'

However, Big B will be present at the Mumbai event.

Tell Ramu that the Sarkar Raj event will be eclipsed by the excitement over its lead pair's wedding anniversary, and he shrugs.

'It doesn't matter. We cannot separate Abhishek and Aishwarya's life from Sarkar Raj. Very soon after the First-Look event we'll have the music release. T-Series is releasing the music soundtrack.'

Bollywood Gossip - Dostana sizzles with Shilpa and John's presence
Bollywood Gossips : Well, first it was Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty, who is believed to have done a really sizzling hot number in Dharma Productions' Dostana being directed by Tarun Mansukhani. And now it's Bollywood actor John Abraham's turn.

No, John is not doing an item number. But he will be flaunting his six packs in Dostana. This is something which will cheer the hearts of his female fans. Apparently the actor will go bare chested for a sequence in the film.

Of course, this is not the first time that he has done so. Even in films like Jism and the more recent No Smoking, the brawny actor was seen bare chested. It seems that producer Karan Johar is not leaving anything to chance in his home production. He has left no stone unturned to ensure that the film grabs attention.

Besides boasting of a cast consisting of Bollywood a John, Priyanka Chopra and Abhishek Bachchan, he went ahead and roped in Shilpa Shetty for an item number. And that's not all. He is also believed to have roped in actor Bobby Deol to do a special number. He sure does believe in the more the merrier.

Bollywood Gossip - New talent for Aamir's Delhi Belly
Swedish director Robert Nylund, who was roped in to direct Aamir Khan's next production Delhi Belly, is no more at the helm of affairs.

The actor has hired ad filmmaker Abinay Deo, who directed Hrithik Roshan's Cinthol commercial, to wield the megaphone for the film, which will probably be made in English.

"Robert Nylund has been replaced by Abinay, who is well known character actors Ramesh and Seema Deo's younger son (the elder one Ajinkya Deo is a recognised Marathi and Hindi actor) and the film was originally going to be in Hindi. It's now in English," a source close to the project said.

This is a big bright bustling break for the young ad maker who has directed Shah Rukh Khan, Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone for a high-budget Pepsi ad.

"In an instant replay of what happened between Aamir and Amole Gupte during Taare Zameen Par, Aamir couldn't see eye to eye with the Swedish director. After Delhi Belly was without a director, Aamir was very impressed by Abhinay's ads. When they met, he found Abhinay to be bright and full of ideas," the source added.

Apparently, Abhinay has been asked to direct Delhi Belly on the lines of Guy Ritchie's heist caper Snatch.

"It would be a very naughty and sexy comedy unlike anything one would expect from Aamir. And yes, he's likely to play a part in it," the source said.

Bollywood Gossip - Now this is Two much Aishwarya!!!
Sunday, April 13, 2008
Bollywood Gossips : Just when we thought Shankar's Robot was all set to go on floors came a bad news that Bollywood Actress Aishwarya Rai might eventually pull out of the ambitious project given the director's plans to shoot the film over a period of two years.

That apparently is not acceptable to Ash who cannot afford to give so much of time to a project.

There are also news doing rounds about Deepika Padukone's inclusion into this sci-fi Rajni starrer.

Shankar and Rajnikant are very fond of Ash, who made her acting debut in Shankar’s film ‘Jeans’. Since then, the director has approached Ash for every single film he has made except ‘Boys’, but every time Ash has turned him down for one reason or another.

It remains to be seen if she has turned him down again for ‘Robot’.


Aishwarya Rai Bachchan


We hear, the actress has already asked Rohan Sippy to start his film Happy Birthday which stars John Abraham besides her due to delays in Robot.

However some insiders maintain that Robot is getting delayed due to security reasons and not Aishwarya refusal.

The major hurdle in rolling the project, which will be shot at different locales in India and overseas, is that the areas have to be scanned from the security point of view. Both Rajnikanth and Ash come under a high protection security network.

Post wedding, Ash’s security has beenoverhauled. All her shoot locales are now thoroughly scanned by the producers and rest of the crew.

Reportedly, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was promised Rs 4 crore for Robot which is slated to be a bilingual venture - both in Hindi and Tamil.

Bollywood Gossip - My conscience is clear says Rakesh Roshan
Hrithik Roshan

Bollywood Gossips : Krazzy 4 producer Rakesh Roshan says that his conscience is clear on the allegation of plagiarism levelled by jingle composer Ram Sampath on a song from the movie. He said he has paid Rs 20 million to Sampath to include the song in the film that released Friday.

Roshan says that it was only towards the end of March that he learnt that the tune for which he was dragged to court belongs to Sampath and not Sony-Ericsson.

"We took a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from Sony-Ericsson and they gave me a letter of consent. I went about this the right way.

"My conscience is clear. Towards the end of March I was told the tune belongs to Ram Sampath and not Sony-Ericsson. Not in my wildest dreams could I doubt the company's intentions," Roshan told IANS.

He said. "I was misinformed. I was in a crisis situation and had no choice but to pay up the Rs 2 crores (Rs.20 million) that was asked of me."

"I'd like to ask Ram Sampath one thing. If his tune was the same as the one in Krazzy 4 wouldn't it have been an equally big hit when it was played as part of the cell phone ad campaign? That too had Hrithik dancing in it... Yes, the main hook line is the same," he added.

"And if Ram Sampath sensed an irregularity why did he wait until my film's release was around the corner? He could have come to me when the film's music released at the end of February and made his claim. Why wait for the last minute when the film was about to be released?

"I suspect they were preparing their case for very long. On Monday, I was suddenly faced with this crisis. What could I do but pay up?"

Rakesh clears his brother composer Rajesh Roshan's name. "Let me state my brother Rajesh Roshan had no hand in this. I told Rajesh to use that portion of the song. He asked me to take a NOC, which I did."

"We don't have to stoop as low as to cheat anyone. If the prints of the film hadn't been sent off, I could've cut the song. But I cannot betray my distributors and audiences. I've a massive responsibility towards them. I could do nothing but go for a settlement. I had to pay Rs.2 crores (Rs.20 million)."

"What to do? I'm not angry or upset. It just hurts me that I was subjected to this for no fault of mine. One thing is for sure. The doors have opened now to anyone who wants make a claim over anyone's work. Fortunately Krazzy 4 has opened very well," said Roshan.

Bollywood Gossip - Catch Shilpa Shetty in Bikini
Tuesday, April 8, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : After hitting the headlines for the US based reality show Big Brother and Gere’s packs of kisses on her cheeks on AIDS campaign infront of the news media, the long-legged Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty is again in news for her bikini shot. Thats's Right!!

Shilpa Shetty

Shilpa has spent 15 years in Bollywood but unfortunately she had few good films to her credit. When Karan Johar approached her for Dostana, she readily accepted the offer and even agreed to wear bikini for an item song.

Karan Johar first approached Priyanka Chopra and asked her to tone her body to look perfect in bikini; however she declined to shoot a song in a two-piece. Later, he laid down on Shilpa. It’s a dream come true for her to work in Karan’s film. She will groove in an item number opposite John and Abhishek in bikini to be shot in America's famous Miami Beach. The item number is going to be too hot that would not only shake UP, Bihar but the entire world :)

Bollywood Movie "Dostana" is expected to be a remake of 80s classic which starred Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha and Zeenat Aman in the lead role. The new Dostana will star Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra. Karan had approached Aishwarya to play the leading lady opposite Abhishek and John but the plot did not sound thrilling to Ash [Aishwarya Rai] and she turned it down.

Bollywood Gossip - I'm not wearing any Bikini says Bebo
Monday, April 7, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : Though Kareena Kapoor is looking scorching hot in Tashan, you won't able to catch her her in bikini as reported earlier by many tabloids.

Says a souce from Yash Raj, "No doubt Kareena will look hot in shorts too. The running promos have already proved that Kareena in her new make over is looking stunning."

In her recent interview, Kareena too remarked on her bikini scene that she is not wearing any sexy attire in 'Tashan' and it is just a rumor. Though she agreed that her role is extremely glamorous as it was a requirement of her character.

She also added that her look will be a new trend for onscreen glam divas. So was that hyped scene another Yashraj promotional strategy?

It seems so as Tashan is cashing big time on Kareena’s bikini scene which may or may not be there in the film.
