Ajay Devgan's superbike seized by Revenue Intelligence for evasion of duty

Ajay Devgan Ajay Devgan has been in the news of late thanks to his upcoming films Rajneeti and newly announced All The Best. However, this time he isn't making the headlines for any of his films. Instead it is the actor's imported bike that has drawn not just ours but also the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence's attention towards the star.

In a massive sweep to check the duty evasion that is rampant on imported superbikes, the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence cracked down on the owners of such bikes who have evaded the payment of duty by importing the bikes as parts. This evasion is blatantly visible as the bikes in question are clearly visible on the streets, but the reports fail to show any mention about them.

Devgan's bike isn't the only set of wheels connected to the world of glitz. Also under the scanner is the bike of filmmaker Sanjay Gupta, though the filmmaker says that his papers were clear and that his mobike hadn't been seized. As for Devgan, reportedly, he has offered to pay the amount that is due.

Sonam Kapoor heading for an image makeover

Sonam Kapoor has had two releases uptil now and the girl has appeared as the coy girl-next-door in both her flicks. Now, it is time for an image makeover for this newcomer. But since no film maker has approached the Kapoor girl with a glam role, Sonam has turned to her Papa dear Anil Kapoor to get her wish fulfilled.

So now we have Anil Kapoor to produce a movie titled ‘Ayesha’ based on the the famous novel “Emma” written by Jane Austen. Sonam, of course, will be playing the lead role of Emma (Ayesha here) who is rich, easy going and flamboyant. Abhay Deol has been reportedly roped in for the project and a new actor named Arunodoy Singh is to play another male lead role.

While Abhay will be seen as a man who clandestinely loves and cares for the heroine, Arunodoy will give life to a role of a playful young man for whom the leading lady has a soft corner. V.J Cyrus Sahukar will be come across as a man who wishes to marry Ayesha. The task of editing the novel has been trusted upon Devika Bhagat, the writer of ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’.

Though both her previous films bombed at the box office, Sonam Kapoor has stolen everyone’s heart with her beauty and freshness. Lets see how much appreciation she gets in a glamorous role.

Fiery actress Gul Panag loves meaningful cinema and would love to do some meaningful commercial with Aamir Khan.

She says, “I’ll certainly do a commercial with Aamir – even if it’s for something like condoms! And on the subject of condoms, people ought to learn to talk about condoms openly.The Censor Board needs to operate in a more rational manner.”

She adds. “On one hand, we have population control initiatives, and on the other, the Censor Board chops a scene in Hello for a dialogue that has the word ‘condom’ in it. Isn’t that illogical?”

Post Slumdog... Freida Pinto is India's ultimate cover girl

Just months ago she was a virtual nobody, but with the eight Oscar sweep by her debut film "Slumdog Millionaire", Indian model-turned-actress Freida Pinto is now hot property for magazine covers.

Being the obvious new darling of Hollywood, Freida has also become a much in-demand magazine cover girl back home for obvious reasons, reports dailymail.co.uk.

The actress will dominate the newsstands across India in March, with men's magazine Maxim opting to put her face and knock-out body on its cover, as will women's magazines Cosmopolitan and Vogue.

Basking in her new found success, the 24-year-old, who has described her meteoric rise to fame as a "dream", also appears on the cover of industry bible Entertainment Weekly alongside her co-star from the underdog drama Dev Patel.

Posing for the covers didn't come hard for the actress as she started out her career posing in advertisements for products like Wrigley's Chewing Gum.

"I used to anchor a travel show in India, which is clearly not acting, and I had done a little bit of modelling. Both of those things helped me with the camera," she said.

Freida, however, always had acting at the back of her mind as a career.

"I always wanted to act in films, but in India it's very difficult to become an actress if you haven't got a godfather - someone with influence, always a man, in the industry to help get you into auditions.

"But I didn't need a godfather for 'Slumdog...' I just went along, did the audition with Dev and then Danny picked me," she explained.

Despite the success of her first film and her passion for acting, she is not sure of her career in the profession.

"I have no idea whether acting is a future for me, but I would like to do more film work. The reaction to 'Slumdog...' has been beyond my wildest expectations."

In what will be only her second film, Freida is now lined up to star in Woody Allen's next alongside Hollywood stars Josh Brolin, Naomi Watts and Anthony Hopkins.

Filming will start in London this summer.
