Sorry Bhai - Movie Preview

Siddharth Mathur, a shy young scientist, travels to Mauritius for his elder brother Harsh's wedding. Accompanying him is his Ma, a reluctant traveller since she is angry at Harsh for deciding to get married without consulting them. Also travelling is Siddharth's cheery father, whose sole entertainment is pulling Ma's leg.

Harsh, pre-occupied with work, can spend little time with his family and it is left to his fiancée Aaliyah to show them around Mauritius before the wedding.

However, Ma's anger at Harsh ensures that she takes an instant dislike for Aaliyah, and it is Aaliyah and Siddharth who end up spending loads of time together. This, added to the fact that Aaliyah feels neglected by the career-obsessed Harsh, leads to them being irresistibly drawn to each other.

A horrified Siddharth battles this attraction desperately, but Aaliyah has fallen madly in love and pursues him with single-minded determination.

When Siddharth’s defences start crumbling and Ma starts getting suspicious, all hell breaks loose in the Mathur family…The movie is a fun romantic comedy with lots of moments that will make you cry and smile at the same time.

My husband is with me. What else I could have asked for: Aishwarya Rai

One of the world's most beautiful ladies has had all kinds of birthdays over the years. All good ones, some exceptionally memorable.

But the one tomorrow as she brings in her birthday, takes the birthday cake.

Aishwarya is lost somewhere in the thick jungles on the outskirts of Kochi shooting for Mani Ratnam's new film. So no parents and no adopted parents (the Bachchans) this birthday.

But wait. She is with her husband Abhishek Bachchan.

"And so here I am on my birthday with the love of her life, " Aishwarya laughed with girlish pleasure hours before her birthday. "In a way I couldn't have asked for more. It's a beautiful green paradise here. We started shooting just a day ago. And we already feel those vibes of an extraordinary happening. And my husband is with me.

So is my most favourite who directed us in in one of our best films together (Guru) and who incidentally also happens to be my first director. And we're working on the most beautiful film that we could ever hope for. What better birthday could I as for?"

Any regrets about not being with the family for her special day?

"It was just not possible. Mani Sir has been absolutely patient, waiting for me and Abhishek while we attended to Pa (Amitabh Bachchan). We started shooting yesterday only.

Any further delay would be totally unacceptable to both me and Abhishek. Both of us have been brought up to believe that work is worship….but when it comes to a family crisis, nothing else matters."

Falling silent for a few seconds as Abhishek walks in toask his wife if she's doing an interview before moving out, the epitome of gentle grace, Aishwarya suddenly giggles pleasurably. "But you know what? I've heard some whispers around here that we're getting Sunday off…a day after my birthday. But not a problem. We'll all celebrate properly a day later. No issues."

The past few months have been exctremely trying for Aishwarya. First her father's illness then her father-in-law's sudden hospitalization. But she continued to fulfil all her professional obligations.

She sighs, "You know the best thing is, through all these trying times all my professional associates and colleagues have been a source of strength and courage. There was never this feeling of, 'You better do it'. It was always a sense of, 'Are you sure you can do it?'.

I've derived great strength and sustenance from family friends and colleagues. And I want to take this opportunity to thank them from the bottom of my heart. Their love and prayers have kept me going through the last few months"

So what's the one gift that she wants this birthday?

"Ha, " laughs lovely diva, "You know me. I don't ask for anything. I already have everything that I could possibly want without asking for. And like I said I'm with the love of my life in the wilderness.

Sadly no one will be able to get through to me where I'm shooting. But all the sms, prayers and love will be with me when I return to civilization in the evening tomorrow. Yeah I miss my family on my birthday. But then I can't have it all, can I?"

Golmaal Returns faces copyright violation charge

The comedy film "Golmaal Returns" is a copy of the 1973 production "Aaj Ki Taza Khabar", a complainant told a film producers' forum Tuesday.

Shakuntala Bhatia lodged a complaint with the Indian Motion Picture Producers' Association (IMPPA) that "Golmaal Returns", which was released Oct 29, was a direct copy of her husband, producer Rajendra Bhatia's "Aaj Ki Taza Khabar", starring Kiran Kumar, Radha Saluja and Asrani.

She said she came to know of the similarities of the stories between the two movies only after she read reviews of "Golmaal Returns" in a Bollywood trade magazine Monday. She substantiated her claim, saying the reviewers had also noted as much in their magazines.

Bhatia claimed a compensation of Rs.50 million from "Golmaal Returns" producer Shree Asthavinayak Cine Vision as Kiron Production, headed by her, was in the process of re-making "Aaj Ki Taza Khabar".

"Golmaal Returns", starring Ajay Devgan, Kareena Kapoor, Tushar Kapoor, Shreyas Talpade, Arshad Warsi, Celina Jaitley and Amrita Arora and directed by Rohit Shetty, has already raked in Rs.450 million from domestic box-office with additional $10 million from the overseas market, according to Indian Films, which owns the movie's rights.

The movie's story has been credited to Yunus Sajawal and it has been advertised as a sequel to Rohit Shetty's 2006 production, "Golmaal."

I never questioned my absence from the poster

With the runaway success of Golmaal Returns the world over, several actors from the film have expressed their disappointment at being left out of the film's publicity or being shortchanged in terms of their role. We suppose everyone wants to be on the bandwagon of a super-hit film!

When quizzed, Celina Jaitly (who is in Auckland for the premiere of her maiden English feature, Love Has No Language) remarked, "I never questioned the film's poster designs or why I was absent in some of them.

It is the prerogative of the producer and distributor on how the film should be promoted. I demonstrated my support to the product by being there for all the interviews and appearances.

In fact, Tusshar, Shreyas and I were like these three musketeers who went all around town selling the film, and happily so. I'm pleased with the results, and as an actor, I'm gratified that Rohit (Shetty) has done justice to my role and character."

When asked about why some of the other actors were disappointed, she quipped, "The film has worked in a big way and has been drawing appreciation from all quarters.

The director (Rohit Shetty), producer (Shree Ashta Vinayak Cinevision) and distributor (Indian Films - Studio 18) have obviously done their jobs right!"

Upen's busy mingling with the girls only!

What's got into Upen Patel? Since all his movies are flopping and he's getting overshadowed in every other film (from '36 China Town' to 'Shaka Laka Boom Boom' to 'Namaste London' to ' Money hai to Honey Hai'), he's busy doing other things in life.

The angry young man celebrated Diwali with his mum in South Africa recently. He was reportedly busy enjoying and dancing with the girls there.

And that's not all. The single guy is very much ready to mingle too. After Amrita Arora, Shamita Singha and the Brazilian supermodel, he's putting his flirty ways to good use by looking for a new girl.

The buzz is that he chose to omit his male friends from the dinner he hosted at his home over the weekend.

His female model pals like Pia Trivedi and Mughda Ghodse were there. After dinner, they headed to the launch of Jean Claude in Bandra.

When his male pals asked him why they were ignored, he simply told them that it hadn't been planned!

Well, the guy wanted to do his thing, that's why he lied. As simple as that!

I would have loved to kiss Tanushree

Wannabe Saahil Khan tried his best to film a smooching scene with Tanushree Datta.

It was meant to be in 'Rama-the Saviour', a superhero film which he's producing and acting in. But Tanushree just refused to cooperate.

Apparently Mr. All Brawn- No Brains is a sad man today. His so called desire to kiss the Bengali beauty didn't materialize.

He has reportedly says, "I''m not that lucky. I would have loved to kiss Tanushree."

Maybe he thought that by incorporating intimacy and action he can do something about his non happening career. After all, he's been struggling since 'Style' in 2001!

If that's what he thought, he's totally wrong. There are intelligent viewers around that are capable of giving him and his film a good thrashing!

I didn't ask for any explanation fom Bebo: Saif

Imtiaz Ali who has just directed Saif's untitled home production has offered Saif Ali Khan a chance to make his dream come true.He may soon have his own Rock On kind of musical film to play the lead.

Divulges Saif excitedly, "It's a film called Rock Star. I don't know if I'm equipped to handle it. Rock music is about a lot of attitude. More than just playing with an attitude, it's way of thinking. I need to be more true to the music. It's easy to call any star a rock star. But I think it's more than your lifestyle. It's about being able to live your life the way you want."

Saif wants to work on the attitude and the guitar before doing Rock Star.

On Friday night Saif played the guitar for the charity concert for Bihar flood relief. He played the strings so hard his fingers were bleeding profusely afterwards.

"It has never happened before. My fingers are seriously cut. This is a sign of how seriously I played the guitar. And if I was a seasoned player that wouldn't happen.

So I want to pursue this seriously. As for my performance on Friday night I think of the two AC/DC songs 'Livewire' and 'A Whole Lot Of Rosie' I think I performed one really well the other not so well. But finally it was fine."

Saif now intends to pursue guitar playing on a war scale.He owns two guitars and he intends to carry them with him to all his outdoor shootings to play during free hours.

"I own two beautiful guitars …Fender Stratocaster(which Mark Knopfler and Eric Clapton own) and a Gibson Lespaul which was gifted to me recently by the company's branch in India. I think I'll start using that. I want my guitar practice to go on side by side with the shooting. I will travel with my guitars."

About the charity concert on Friday night Saif says, "It went really well. I'd rate my performance 7 out of 10. But I was floored by how well the Pentagram lead guitarist Randolph played, also Tushar who's done so much music for Yashraj Films…he played so well! In comparison I'm still learning to play the guitar. "

Saif is honest in his self-assessment. "I seriously need to get out of the amateur player's zone. I love rock music. It's very liberating. It's the same feeling as when we all went dancing as a teenager. The guitar helps me let off steam.

I want to play with a group of friends, jamming and enjoying myself without any care in the world. On Friday night I spoke to the other rock musicians. We've decided to play at some some smaller centres, colleges, etc."

Finally no regrets about Kareena not being at the Friday night concert. "Work comes first. We both have to work, yaar. She doesn't even have to explain. Even my children weren't there on Friday. They're in Delhi. There was a huge turnout."

Shah Rukh loves pretty young hotties

As SRK gets older (43 to be precise) his heroines seem to be getting younger with each movie.

He had great chemistry with the newcomers of 'Chak De! India' followed by the sizzling and dazzling act with 20 something Deepika Padukone in 'Om Shanti Om'. Now he's all set to romance another youngster Anushka Sharma in Yash Raj's 'Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi'.

So it's not Kajol, Preity, Rani anymore but actresses much younger to him!

The ultimate romantic hero of candy floss romances is romancing young chick with lots of grace.

The man himself has reportedly stated, "You bring any actress of today, all of them are younger than me! What can I do about it? I am so lucky to be surrounded by beautiful, young ladies all the time."

Talking more about the magical chemistry he adds, "Instead of these young ladies taking a cue from me about their performance, I have started acting and reacting in response to them, as a result I have started performing better and it shows as an improved onscreen chemistry."

Well, the King Khan's career secrets are unique, just like him. Bet there'll be many more such surprises in store in the days to come!

Prachi Desai already in a controversy

One hit young. And Prachi Desai is already in a controversy. First she's said to have miffed her mentor Ekta Kapoor by refusing to do her film.

Now it's the Bhatts whom Prachi politely turned down, opting out of their much talked-about Jashan. First Sonal Chauhan. Now the suddenly-a-star Prachi Desai getting tremendous notice for her role as Farhan Akhtar's dutiful and beautiful wife in Rock On, has also opted out of the Bhatts' Jashan.

Apparently Abbas-Mustan who are working with Prachi on her second film Life Partner(with Tusshar Kapoor) have the actress contractually bound to ensure theirs is is her second release.

Disarming in her honesty Prachi doesn't beat around the bush regarding the embarrassing cul de sac. "It's true I'm out of Jashan. I really wanted to work with the Bhatts who have done such wonderful work with Kangana and other girls.

I said yes thinking the dates that were with Abbas-Mustan could be adjusted. Unfortunately it didn't work out. Fortunately the Bhatts aren't upset with me. We'll work together again very soon."

As for the supposed differences with her godmother Ekta Kapoor Prachi is cool, "Ekta, her mom Shobha Aunty and I are too close for people to try and spoil our relationship. We don't only share an actress-producer bonding.

I'm like a daughter in their family. And Shobha Aunty is as concerned about my film career. She advised me to wait until the release of Rock On before signing any new films. I'll always be relying on Ekta and Shobha Aunty to guide me through my film career."

Prachi doesn't flinch from admitting she declined a film offer from Balajee. " They had spoken to me about a film. But we hadn't signed a contract or anything. Like I said Shobha Aunty and Ekta have told me to do what is best for my career.

When I left their serial Kkasam Se it was a heart-wrenching decision for me. I had become a part of the Balajee family and I was moving into an area where I had no experience at all. Luckily Ekta encouraged me to do Rock On although the role was that of a wife and mother-to-be and I had to play a woman older than I am.

But then in Kkasam Se I played a wife and a bahu. So I guess those years of experience came in handy when I finally did my first film."

After Rajeev Khandelwal in Aamir, Prachi is the second Balaja breakaway actor to make it big in films.

"What Kkasam Se did for me in 2 ½ years, Rock On has done in 2 ½ hours. People used to say they wanted a bahu like Bani. Now they're saying they want a wife life Sakshi in Rock On.

And to think Farhan and Ritesh Sidwani's company used to get hatemail when they signed me on for their film. People were so upset because they felt a film career was taking me away from television."

Prachi is now done with television. "Going into films was a big risk. I was playing a character I knew little about. I was moving from one medium to another and also to an audience from a different age group. But I had age on my side. Even if I had failed there was enough time to make corrections. I'm so glad Rock On worked."

She credits the reality show Jhalak Dikhla Ja with creating a bridge between tv and cinema. "The reality show allowed me to be more myself. After being the weepy Bahu and playing a woman between 30 and 40 for so long I had fun dancing. I think Jhalak… got me Rock On."

Today Prachi has made her parents proud. "When as child I'd say I wanted to be an actress they didn't take me seriously. At last the people around me are taking me seriously."

As we had informed, so it happened. The much awaited song promo of Aditya Chopra's Shah Rukh Khan starrer, RAB NE BANA DI JODI, made a high profile appearance on Sunday, across all leading channels, to coincide with the superstar's birthday. And what a song and what a promo!

The teaser kickstarts with SRK in his common man look taking a bath under a tap, followed by his self cooked bread and butter breakfast, and not to mention that he even washes the plates! All the while, the superb harmonium rhythm accompanies the proceedings and finally the superlative number, 'Haule Haule' unfolds. The Sukhwinder–SRK magic is palpable once again. This is one number that we promise; even Shah Rukh Khan's adversaries will fall in love with! The simple melody is absolutely bewitching and the song takes the listeners in its grips, 'haule haule' (slowly). Yes, that's the beauty of the number. Initially, it does strike as just another sweet love song but slowly and surely it captures the heart! Jaideep Sahni as the lyricist strikes an instant cord with his simple but meaningful lyrics– 'Haule haule se hawa lagti hai, Haule haule se dawa lagti hai, Haule haule se dua lagti hai, Haule haule chanda badhta hai, Haule haule ghoonghat uthta hai, Haule haule se nasha chadhta hai!'

The debutant Anushka Sharma looking pretty in her usual simple 'salwar–suit', makes a brief appearance on a rickshaw. And she is there as the mesmerizing song ends which shows her applying colour ('gulal') to the bespectacled and moustached Shah Rukh Khan.

As the saying goes, well begun is half done! The RNBDJ song promo has received unanimous praise from all sections of the trade as well as the general paying public. So, with such a beautiful number first up we await even more eagerly for the launch of its much anticipated music album on 6th/7th November.
