Bollywood Gossip - The Perfectionist
Saturday, October 25, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : Director Samir Karnik and much sought after Cinematographer Binod Pradhan have come together to work in Heroes. A particular scene with Salman Khan required him to sit on top of an army truck with the sun setting behind the mountains as a backdrop. In such a situation good lighting is integral if not crucial and since it was a top angle shot the crane had to be maneuvered in order to accommodate the actors and the scenic location.

Heroes

The scene was set but unfortunately the sun had made other plans and promptly went behind the mountains and the moment was lost. And not being a man to compromise Binod Pradhan refused to take the shot. Samir Karnik rues “By the time the crane was moved and Binod ji was ready the light had gone. Binod ji said its too late to take the shot, I still tried to push him to take the shot but there was no light. I was a little upset that we could not do the shot as it would have been perfect take. But alas nature had other plans”

Bollywood Gossip - Salman Khan bowls over Priety Zinta
Tuesday, October 14, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : Turban is in. Turban is king! This seems to be the trend this season in Bollywood. After Akshay 'King' Kumar made it look uber-cool, every actor is apparently vying to wear it as it were the new crown!

No wonder then, Salman Khan has hopped on to the pagdi bandwagon as well, and his co-star Preity Zinta just can't stop raving about his Sikh look in their forthcoming release Heroes.

"We have worked together earlier, but I had never complimented him before. But Salman's Sikh look swept me off my feet," said Preity. "This is the first time that my male co-star's looks made me go completely in awe of him. Salman plays a Punjabi in the film and every time I saw him in his get-up, I'd go - 'Wow! You look so good, Salman!" added the actress.

In the past, Salman Khan and Preity Zinta have worked together in films like Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega, Chori Chori Chupke Chupke and Jaan-e-mann but most of them bombed at the box office.

Besides Salman, Saif is also donning the turban look in his yet to be titled home production directed by Imtiaz Ali. The film pairs Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone for the first time.

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 - Katrina laughs off marriage plans
Tuesday, August 26, 2008
Bollywood Gossip : "I will marry next year," that's what the bad boy of Bollywood has been telling eveyone who keep asking him questions about his impending marriage with Katrina Kaif.

“I am so bored with this question which I have been asked so many times,” he says. “Every year I say ‘Next Year’ and this goes on.’”

However this year he sounds serious with his plans. Talking to a leading tabloid Sallu again replied, "I’m settling down in 2009 and would like to become a father immediately. "

According to sources, Salman has also popped 'the question' from several quarters: from the media to guests on his show 10 Ka Dum. Akshay made it a point to ask Sallu when he was planning to marry Kat, when he appeared on Khan's show with the actress.

But Katrina who has tasted success at the box-office recently is not as ecstatic.

She laughs off any talks of marriage. The actress says, "I think Salman said whatever he wanted to say. Let people make of it whatever they want. I have never commented on the personal side in the media. I don't wish to start right now."

Bollywood Gossip - Has Katrina Kaif dumped Salman?
Wednesday, March 26, 2008
Bollywood Gossips - Bollywood Actress Katrina Kaif finally seems to be getting away from Salman's shadow. The year 2007 was indeed special for Katrina as she is the only actress to achieve four back-to-back successes in the year in Namastey London, Apne, Partner and Welcome.

Today she has become the highest paid item girl in the industry paid a whopping 1.5 crore to shimmy in Shree Ashtavinayak’s next film Blue.

The film stars Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar and Lara Dutta in lead roles.

We hear, when the production house asked her to do an item number, Kaif initially refused, as she doesn’t want the label of an item girl.

But when the makers agreed to pay her a 1.5 crore fee and offered a few more scenes, the actress accepted.

However, Balaji people were not that lucky. When they approached Katrina to do an item number for their next, C Company, the actress flatly turned it down. Money, of course, was the bone of contention. Balaji was not willing to shell out that kind of money.

But being an item with a fat pay cheque is not what she all wants, she wants to share space with someone like Hrithik.

“I don’t know if I would get an opportunity to work with him so early in my career, but he is one actor I would love to work with, no questions asked," she tells.

"The way he put his heart and soul into the character of Akbar left me speechless. I'm looking forward to working with Hrithik sometime soon.”

Of course, she is also in for an image makeover, so it is bye bye girl next doot and hello sexy siren phase for Katrina.

But this change is not just confined to her professional life. She is also delibrately distancing herself from Salman.

So when someone from media asked her Salman Khan and his ongoing flings with Brazilian supermodel Bruna Abdalah and Mahek Chahal Kat just pounced on the poor guy saying," You know, you guys need to learn that when someone is standing before you, you have to treat that person with respect."

"It's a ridiculous question, ridiculous. You guys need to learn to draw the line," she added before walking away in a huff.

Bollywood Gossips-Salman's too expensive
Wednesday, February 6, 2008
A buzz was doing the round that Salman Khan had charged producer Vivek Galani a whooping sum of Rs 35 crore for Veer! Well, to give you a background, Veer is director Anil Sharma's (of Apne fame) next venture and will be written by none other than Sallu boy himself.

Now considering he is acting as well as writing, the sum isn't unthinkable. And the same bee that buzzed about Salman's amount buzzed noisily that Anil himself has charged Rs 7 crore. This would mean that the producers would be spending 42 crore on just Salman and Sharma!

But on asking, Sharma gets defensive, "Not at all. Our scripting has just been finished. Salman and I have worked day and night in getting it perfect. But it's way too early to discuss the final figures yet," he said. Yet, it's tough to believe that. Salman being Salman would not write an entire script without

having the figures known, if not cleared. We probed more. "See Salman has become very attached to the story and is personally involved in everything about the film. He would not possibly charge such a massive amount. He can't be so impractical," he retorted.

Anil gushed further saying, " The way he has visualised the story is brilliant. His seniority and experience shines through. I am very confident that the film will do well!" Well, we wish so too. Amen.

Salman close to Ash at Tussauds
Sunday, January 13, 2008


Former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's former boyfriend Salman Khan who will soon be a waxwork at Madame Tussaud's, London, is just metres away from her.

According to Madame Tussaud officials, Salman's figure will be placed in the New Bollywood area.

This is the area where three other Bollywood superstars Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai and Shah Rukh Khan's wax statue are already there.

Salman will not be part of the interactive section of the museum like Brad Pitt. Salman has been authorised by the jail authorities to travel to London to unveil his wax statue on January 14.

Khan is a four-letter word that spells box-office magic
Monday, January 7, 2008
Khan is a four-letter word that spells box-office magic.

When Mangal Pandey was released in 2005, Aamir Khan was asked how long his luck would work at the box office. "At least for another 20 years," he had replied.

It looks like the actor's prophecy was spot on. And that seems to hold true for the other two Khans as well.

The year 2007 was dominated by Shah Rukh, Salman and Aamir, who delivered the biggest hits of the year. The only other actor who came close to them was Akshay Kumar with hits like Namastey London, Heyy Babyy, Bhool Bhulaiya and Welcome.

One actor who could have taken on the Khan might -- Hrithik Roshan -- did not have any release.

Aamir Khan in a still from Taare Zameen ParSo it was the Khans' playground with Shah Rukh leading the pack. The stupendous success of Om Shanti Om and Chak De! India only helped solidify his King Khan status. Salman's Partner and Aamir's directorial debut Taare Zameen Par were the other big hits from the Khan fraternity.

So exactly how does the Khan magic work?

According to Spice Marketing Communication Agency trade analyst Prabhat Chaudhary, "All these Khans are pre-liberalisation period heroes and have established a certain fan following. Their audiences and fan base have grown up with them so to watch their films is like an event for Indian families.

"There is a generation of loyalty in Indian families for the Khans and that has remained the same," he adds. "This generation just refuses to let them go. That loyalty base has not shifted to any other hero in the last so many years and that is the reason for the Khans' rule."

And so year after year, for the last 20 years, one of the Khans has always managed to deliver some of the biggest hits at the box office. If Aamir started the hit trend with the success of Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Salman continued the run with Maine Pyaar Kiya, followed by Shah Rukh's Baazigar and Darr.

Salman Khan in a still from PartnerSalman then followed up with the smash hit Hum Aapke Hai Kaun. Not to be outdone, Shah Rukh delivered the all time hit, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge.

And the Khan gold rush did not stop there. Up next was Aamir's Raja Hindustani followed by Sarfarosh and then the Oscar-nominated Lagaan.

Dogged by controversies galore, Salman's popularity never dipped. His film Tere Naam created a record of sorts at the box office by getting the biggest opening in 2003.

So does having a Khan surname guarantee success in Bollywood? "It is not like that," says trade analyst Vinod Mirani. "They have done good work and all three -- Aamir, Salman and Shah Rukh -- have gained from it.

"There were other Khans too in between -- Zayed, Fardeen and even Arbaaz -- but none of them clicked in a big way," he continues. "The only other Khan that clicked off late was Saif Ali Khan after Hum Tum became a big hit."

About Saif's success, Mirani says, "It is a question of sustainability in the industry. One has to sustain for long and there is a great chance that one or the other film will click for sure."

Mirani points out that Amitabh "Bachchan too had 12 flops in a row before he delivered a hit in Zanjeer. He didn't give up and tried till he succeeded. Once you succeed then a couple of flops are pardonable in the industry because you have already created a loyal fan base."

So is it just sheer doggedness that guarantees success?

According to another trade analyst, Taran Adarsh, "One has to admit the fact that all three -- Aamir, Shah Rukh and Salman -- have worked hard to become successful. They have always chosen the best scripts for their films and so also (have had)luck, which everyone needs in life."

Shah Rukh Khan in a still from Om Shanti OmSo will the same hold true for the others?

On condition of anonymity, a trade analyst points out, "Sparks were shown by Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapur and even Neil Mukesh. They are good but they still have a long way to go. Till then, the Khans will rule.

"Indian families," he continues, "keep some money aside from their monthly budget to watch a Khan film and that is going on for the last 15 years. That is a worrisome trend because the film industry has not produced any new big stars."

Till it does, we have the Khans.

Ask what works for him at the box office, Salman Khan told rediff.com an interview, "It is my ability to pick up the right scripts. I am a writer's son (Salim Khan of Salim-Javed fame) and I know which film will work and that is the reason my films work.

"I can pinpoint the script that will catch the fancy of the audience and will never let it go," he added. "I put a great deal of attention on it, and therefore my films work.

"I feel everything is destiny," he continued. "If something good is written in your fate it will happen and that is what has happened to me. If I was not an actor, I would have been a painter probably."

Salman Khan to unveil statue at Tussauds
Friday, January 4, 2008
Bollywood actor Salman Khan, who has been sentenced to five years in jail for poaching, has been given permission by the Jodhpur High Court to travel to London for the unveiling of his statue at Madam Tussauds Wax Museum, his lawyer said.

Dipesh Mehta, the actor's lawyer, confirmed that he would fly to London January 14.

"He will unveil the statue the same day and return the next day," Mehta said.

Salman's wax statue will join the statues of other Bollywood stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai.

The actor, currently out on bail, was found guilty of poaching a chinkara, an endangered species of deer, near Jodhpur in September 1998 while filming for the movie Hum Saath Saath Hain.

A lower court convicted Salman for the offence on February 17, 2007.

The Bishnoi community of Rajasthan, traditional custodians of the natural environment, had taken up the matter against Salman.

Why did Aamir Khan refuse to be part of OSO ? Aamir is not in the song. Farah Khan had approached him but he was too busy shooting his film Ghajini and wasn’t able to be a part of her film. She wish that she could bring Aamir, Shah Rukh and Salman dancing together in her film.

Wednesday, October 24, 2007
Bollywood actor Salman Khan will be appearing before the principal bench of the Rajasthan High Court in Jodhpur on Wednesday in connection with the 1998 Chinkara poaching case lodged against him.
