Abhishek Bachchan, Himesh Reshammiya and Mallika Sherwat in RGV's Rann?

In journalism, there has always been a tension of getting it first. But what matters is getting it right. It's been ten days since we first brought to you the breaking news of the starcast in RGV's Rann, and just as RGV always plans to release one film every month, we have decided to bring to you one news every week from his latest offering. RGV already has a mega line up of stars for this film which includes Amitabh Bachchan, Paresh Rawal, Riteish Deshmukh, Mohnish Behl, Manisha Koirala, Rajat Kapoor, Sudeep, Gul Panag, Raima Sen and Rajpal Yadav. Now, some of the media buffs have already started speculating that Rann has got another actor in the long line-up of the film. Don't be surprised! Be cautious! Coz it's none other than Himesh Reshammiya. Yes, a little birdie tells us that Himesh had gone to meet RGV at his Oshiwara office after hearing that Rann is his next biggie in the making. So what does RGV tell him? Well, again the grapevine hears that the director par excellence told him 'No'. But on the flip side RGV was very impressed with Himesh's enthusiasm and so is now trying to work things out if there is any role for the actor which can be sketched out in his film.

We also hear the gossip mills talking about Rann's hidden treasure. It comes in the form of Mallika Sherawat. However, what role she has got to play in the film is something which only RGV will be able to tell us. In the meantime, another Bollywood biggie is also said to have been roped in for this mammoth project. Like father, like son, Abhishek Bachchan. For all you Sarkar and Sarkar Raj fans, you need not worry now. Both the Bachchans are back but only time will tell whether they both share the limelight again in what is said to be Ram Gopal Varma's biggest directorial film - Rann.

Abhishek-Aishwarya say No to LG's offer

For those who think our stars can do anything for big bucks, here's an eye-opener. Abhishek Bachchan said 'No' to LG's offer to be their brand ambassador for their entire range of products across-the-board for an eye-popping price.

Reason? He didn't want to be even remotely unfaithful to another cell-phone manufacturing company. A source close to the Bachchans says, "LG was very keen to have Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan to endorse their entire range of products across-the-line. It was an extremely tempting and lucrative offer. But LG's range of products also included cell-phones. And Abhishek is already endorsing Motorola cellphones. So, he had to decline LG's offer. But he has received a letter from the company saying they would love to have him and his wife as their brand ambassadors any time they wish."

The Abhishek-Aishwarya pair won't be seen in any advertisement at the moment. Their next screen outing will be Mani Ratnam's film that goes on the floors as soon as Abhishek returns from Miami after filming Karan Johar-Tarun Mansukhani's Dostana with Priyanka Chopra and John Abraham.

At the moment he's working 20 hours a day to wrap up Rakeysh Mehra's Delhi 6, which completed a 2-month schedule in Jaipur and is now being shot in Mumbai.

‘99′ to hit the screens in May

Despite the fact that her mother Sharmila Tagore was once the reigning queen of silver screen, actress Soha Ali Khan could never make it big in this tinsel town. Now, the pretty lady is looking forward to her romantic comedy ‘99’ which will hit the screens in May.

Soha says that her character in the film has a “wild streak”. “I play the character of a girl called Pooja, who is a lobby manager of a hotel floor. She is stylish, confident and vivacious and has a wild streak,” said Soha.

“In the film, two conmen played by Kunal Khemu and Cyrus Broacha enter the character’s life and since she wants some excitement in her life, she happily joins them. She is a fun character at heart,” she added.

‘99’ is the story of two different men in two different cities, who are bound by a common feeling of always being stuck at 99. They never seem to make it to a ‘century’ - figuratively speaking. When they come out to make it big, what follows is an unpredictable and hilarious ride through two cities with extremely likeable and very grounded characters, unbelievable circumstances, real twists of fate, small-time crooks, big-time conspiracies, fateful car crashes, ups of friendship, downs of love and an exciting climax.

Besides, Soha, Kunal and Cyrus, the film also has Mahesh Manjrekar and Simone Singh. The producer of the film, Aditya Shastri informs, “We are launching two more films later. One is Click and Marry to be directed by Anu Menon and the third is Charles and I to be directed by Prawaal Raman.”

One interesting fact about the film is its poster where one can see only partial faces which is probably the first time for a Bollywood movie.

Freida Pinto and Dev Patel spotted kissing?

“Slumdog Millionaire” star Freida Pinto appeared in the chart of world’s sexiest women for the first time in the British men’s lifestyle magazine FHM. Last month, Pinto was also voted among the top five Hollywood sexiest women by men’s magazine Details.

The latest addition to the linkup of Freida with ‘The Slumdog Millionaire’ co-star, Dev Patel, is that the couple was spotted kissing each other during a dinner date in Israel. Dev had reportedly flown to Israel to meet his lady love on the sets of her new movie ‘Miral’.

Since the time they appeared in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, Freida and Dev have sparked rumours of linkup. Even Anil Kapoor confirmed that something was going on between the two. He had said, “”When I meet them I feel there is something happening. (I think) this is the beginning of something exciting happening. They definitely make a great pair. Both of them look very good together.”

However, both the actors have always denied anything between them. On one hand the 24-year-old actress insisted “We’re not dating,” and on the other the 18-year-old Patel added, “No, we’re not seeing each other.”

Now, we have something to ask here. People don’t kiss each other on a dinner date if there is nothing going one, dear Freida and Dev, or do they??

Celina Jaitley faces hate mails for support of gay community

Just recently, Celina Jaitley had expressed her support for the gay community at the re-launch of the magazine for the gay community ‘Bombay Dost’. She had also participated in the Gay Parade in Mumbai and called for the abolition of the laws that treat homosexuality as a crime.

But seems, Celina’s support for homosexuality did not go down well with the people, for the lady has been flooded with various hate mails and messages after the launch party. Some even questioned Celina’s sexuality and wrote that she too is a homosexual.

But strong as she is, Celina is unperturbed by all this. Celina vehemently conferred that this is a human right deserved by every person. During the launch itself she had stated: “It saddens me that people have so much hatred towards sexual minorities and people who show them support. It’s also unfortunate that people have not stopped their hatred against the gay community but have only learnt to mask it.”

Saif likes his lady love even in bikinis

There were rumors in the past that Chhote Nawab didn’t like her lady love Kareena Kapoor giving a skin show in her flicks and had insisted that Kareena chose Indian outfits at various public appearances, but now it has come out that just a two-piece outfit can’t cause cracks in Saifeena’s love story.

In fact, Saif did not like interfering in Kareena’s professional decisions either. It was only that Kareena loved to wear sarees at public functions and awards because it was her personal choice.

Moreover, another source in a media report goes on to allege that Saif was quite supportive of Kareena when she donned the swimwear while shooting for ‘Kambakkht Ishq’ in Los Angeles. In fact, whenever Kareena would glam up and appear on the sets, Saif (who flew to LA for a few days during the shoot) would whistle and tease her.

Neha Dhupia paired opposite Vinay Pathak

She made her debut as a sexy bombshell, but has lately shifted gears and is opting for meaningful cinema with colder-to-life characters. Now, she has paired opposite Vinay Pathak (a favorite in off-beat cinema) for the role of a back row dancer in her forthcoming film ‘Pappu Can’t Dance Saala’.

Neha did a thorough research on back dancers before embarking on the role. She met and interacted with them on a close level because she wanted to know the kind of lifestyle they had. She also opted for a red colored hair because she noticed that all those back dancers that she had met had that color. She also observed that most back row dancers had a habit of chewing gums while waiting for the shot on the sets. So, she adopted that style for her character too.

With so much of effort going in, we hope that the character comes to life and Neha comes back into limelight with a superhit.

Salman Khan to bring awareness for hit-n-run cases

The memories of the scandal and stir created when Salman Khan ran over some poor people sleeping on the street with his rash driving is still afresh in everyone’s mind. Now, the same Salman who had been involved in a serious hit-n-run case is doing a public awareness ad where he asks people not to ignore the victims of hit and run cases.

The ad talks about how people just ignore those who are in distress on roads when hit by someone. It shows a man hit by a vehicle who is left to die.

The ad has been directed by Nikhil Saini who says, Yes, Salman has done a 90-second ad with us. After the story unfolds, Salman comes to give a public service message. He is wearing ‘Being human’ shirt and he says, “Apni zimmidari se mat bhagiye. Responsible aur zimmedar logo ki zaroorat hai is desh ko.” The ad also has Vipin Sharma, (Darsheel Safary’s father in Tare Zameen Par) and Shailendra Gaur, in it. We are quite hopeful of driving home the point.”

Hrithik Roshan caught on camera using abusive words

He has just been barely out of his last controversy, and now actor Hrithik Roshan is apparently stuck with another one. He has been caught mouthing tabooed words in a video clip apparently taped by choreographer Flexy Stu. Flexy is choreographing Hrithik in his forthcoming ‘Kites’. The clip shows co-star Kangana Ranaut practising her dance steps with a female assistant of Flexy. Moments later, Hrithik walks in and joins the dance rehearsals. At the video’s end, Flexy pans the camera and introduces Hrithik. In response, the star points towards Flexy and says: “This is the baddest m****r f****r in the world.”

Although the words are not meant to be abusive but in fact introduce Flexy as a tough task master, but sadly it doesn’t go down well with many of us. The two-minute clip has become a hit in the internet world and also offended some of the fans who want the video to be edited or completely removed.

Hrishita Bhatt & Sonali Kulkarni are all praises for Nasser Khan

This is the first time in the history of Bollywood that a blind man is not only playing a normal hero in his debuting film, but is also doing all the dances and stunts in the film himself. Talking about Nasser Khan, a businessman from Kanpur, the man is debuting with the film called “Shadow” where other actors in lead roles are Milind Soman, Sonali Kulkarni and Hrishitta Bhatt.

The song has 180 dancers and 400 junior artists and has been choreographed by Ganesh Acharya with a budget of 3 crore.

Ganesh Acharya was all praises for Nasser Khan and said, “When I met Nasser Khan I was shocked that how a blind man can act or dance .When I completed the song today I am again shocked as how this man has completed the song with 100 percent performance.”

This is what Sonali Kulkarni had to say about him. “The only man I have seen with extraordinary vision. A person who has amazing enthusiasm and risky trust. A man who is never tired to learn new things. A madly ambitious person who has given me the strength to believe that even sky can not be a limit if you dream to fly. My best co star so far.”

Hrishita Bhatt said, “He has not only inspired me but the whole world will be inspired after the release of this film. The way he works nobody can say that he is blind. He is so efficient that no shot has been retaken due to his mistake. A dream person to work with.”

As for us, we can just say, “Keep going, Nasser!”

Rrevealed: Ranbir Kapoor`s new bearded look

Ranbir Kapoor was trying hard to hide his new look from the public and media glare but well it finally got revealed on election day on Thursday April 30th in Mumbai.

It was reported that Ranbir was growing a beard for Yash Raj Films’ Shimit Amin (Chak De India and Ab Tak Chappan) directed Rocket Singh since he is playing the role of a Sikh character. He didn’t intended to expose his new look to everyone so soon and kill the curiosity surrounding his ‘hatke’ venture.

Apparently, according to media reports Ranbir even backed off from performing at an International film awards function as that would mean his look would be seen across the globe.

But well when poor Ranbir went on to exercise his right of voting to a Pali Hill polling station, the present media literally had him making a quick exit since he didn't want to be caught on camera for a long time.

His efforts ended in vain as the present electronic media just didn't allow him an easy escape and thus he got caught on camera But he kept walking hastily as the TV journalists were asking him questions.

But must say, he does look really cute with the beard.

The remarkable chemistry between Neil & Preity for Morellato

There couldn’t have been a better pairing exuding impeccable chemistry! Yes, we are talking about the hot hunk Neil Nitin Mukesh and our very own bubbly and chirpy Preity Zinta who have been roped to endorse the Italian brand of watches, Morellato.

Insiders have it that the makers themselves came down to India to rope in this sensational actor for the reason that ‘Neil has got the looks of an international star, and, with his stubble on, he looks rugged.’ It is also said that the brand was particularly looking for the tough look, and that’s exactly the reason they did not settle with any chocolate boy Bollywood star, as they wanted to maintain brand image in an international market also.

Not to mention here that the two are looking so good together that we definitely can see filmmakers queuing outside their house to cast two of them together in some films in future.

I am game for bikinis and skin show: Anjana Sukhani

Anjana Sukhani says she is game for bikinis if her role really demands it. Though she has adopted a glamorous persona in films like "Golmaal Returns" and "Salaam-E-Ishq", the actress is yet to join the bikini brigade.

"It's not in my wish list either. However, there comes a point in your career where you get a film that requires you to shed your inhibitions. Of course, the role that I play has to be of utmost importance - if it is justified for the character to wear a bikini, then I won't fret about it, " Anjana told.

Skin show has taken a different dimension in the last few months with actresses like Kareena Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra, Minissha Lamba and Amisha Patel getting into the swim wear for their roles. Also with dozens of film and fashion magazines hitting the stands, actresses are making a bee line to be seen on the cover.

"I'm very sure about the fact that posing seductively for the camera doesn't really pay. It can't help you grab work. What eventually matters is how talented you are and whether you can deliver goods on the screen, " said the actress who had grabbed attention in the Cadbury ad with superstar Amitabh Bachchan.

But being in the glamour world where beauty sells, isn't that a dicey statement to make?

"Of course, looking pretty is a valuable thing, but then talent matters as well", said Anjana. "At the end of the day, it is about coming up with a balancing act. Being 'just pretty' or 'just talented' doesn't help because one of them working just in isolation can't take you anywhere. You have to have a good mix of both."

"My dad has always said that you should do things that reflect the goal that you want to ultimately meet. If a small step taken by me helps me get closer to that goal, I won't mind doing that as long as I don't cross any limits, " she added.

In that case, how does she look back at her first few steps when she had just started her career with films like "Humdum" (2005) and "Sun Zarra" (2006)?

"I continue to be emotionally attached to these films because those earlier steps reaffirmed that I existed and paved the way for me to appear in bigger and better films.

I didn't come from a filmy family; nor did I have any supermodel experience that could help me get work. Those were testing times and everything that I decided to do, I had to do it on my own without any godfather supporting me."

With "Jashn", "Tum Milo toh Sahi" and "Allah Ke Banday" in the pipeline, life is certainly looking up for Anjana.

"Certainly. I am glad that these are turning out to be good times. I stand by all my decisions in the past and, regardless of whether they have succeeded or failed, I have no regrets, " she said.

What's Neetu Chandra doing in Apartment with Tanushree

Two months back, Neetu Chandra was at pains to explain to all and sundry that her 13B wasn't a horror film but instead a supernatural thriller. Now she is forced to take the same route of denial even as the shoot of her latest film Apartment is making brisk progress.

"I don't know why some out there are hell bent on placing me in a horror film. I have nothing against the horror genre and who knows, I may work in one as well in near future.

But just like 13B wasn't a horror film, as everyone saw it for themselves, even Apartment doesn't have any inclusion of horror element. Guess people have started associating horror with every film that is set within the confines of four walls in a skyscraper apartment."

She insists that while 13B still had supernatural element attached to it, if not the horror, Apartment is a plain and simple dramatic thriller.

"Jag sir (as Jagmohan Mundhra, the film's director, is popularly called) is really shaping up Apartment quite beautifully. It is an edge of the seat thriller and I am enjoying every day of the shooting.

This is one of those films where I feel like coming in every day the moment I wake up. In fact I get depressed when there is an off day since I am myself so inclined to see which scene is going to be shot next."

Interestingly, Apartment is the same film which was earlier titled Roommates and was supposed to star Gul Panag and Raima Sen along with Pakistani actor Mikaal Zulfiqar of Mundhra's own Shoot On Sight fame.

However, the cast as well as the film's title went through a complete change and Apartment stars Rohit Roy and Anupam Kher along with Neetu Chandra and Tanushree Dutta.

Though Neetu is not willing to talk much about her character in the film, she hints on being prodded further, "Apartment tells the story of this girl (played by me) who comes from a small town to this big city. She sees quite a lot of changes around her which start reflecting in her personality.

Soon, she becomes quite possessive about things and obsession takes over. Now what is she so obsessed about is something for which you would have to wait. It is too early to talk about it."

In the film, Neetu's character is shown to be sharing an apartment with Tanushree Dutta. Now whom does she get obsessed with? Is it the apartment, Tanushree, someone else or herself? Well, time should tell!

I’m tired of being the sweet girl now I am going hot: Amrita Rao

Shocking as it may sound, Amrita Rao who has been in two of the most successful films of the decade –Farah Khan’s Main Hoon Na and Sooraj Barjatya’s Vivah and whose success rate and iconic status is certainly higher than most of her contemporaries, was not asked to part of Karan Johar-Tarun Mansukhani’s Vote Aapke Haath Mein Hai campaign.

When asked about this surprising omission Amrita laughs away the query. “You’ll have to ask them why I wasn’t part of it.”

Amrita, it would seem, has antagonized the Johar-Chopra’s by refusing to do Bachna Ae Haseenon. She a was offered the role that Minissha Lamba finally did.

Says Amrita, “I won’t say I’m tired of playing the sweet girl nextdoor who looks at life each day with wide-eyed wonder. But I do crave for a change of image. In my next release Short Cut I play a very glamorous girl.

For the first time I’m being dressed up by Manish Malhotra. That does say something about the characters I’ve played so far. So yes I declined Bachna Ae Haeseenon. I couldn’t relate to the character.”

No one says no to a Yash Chopra presentation. Amrita’s behaviour was secretly described as “high-handed” and “reckless”.

And now she was refused a place among Bollywood’s 30-minus icons in Karan Johar’s voting-awareness film although everyone from Kareena Kapoor to Ritesh Deshmukh featured in it.

Not that Amrita was brooding over being left out. On Thursday Amrita Rao voted for the first time. So excited was she by the prospect of casting her vote that she reached the polling booth even before the gates had opened.

“At 7 am I was the first voter at the booth in the municipal school in Mahim.I feel so proud of being able to vote for the first time. I keep looking at the black mark on my finger proudly. For years I envied that tell-tale mark on my parents’ finger.”

Amrita’s chosen candidate had to fulfil three prerequisites. “He had to be well-educated, young though not inexperienced, and without a criminal background.”

Interestingly she says she attained a voting consciousness from a electorally-galvanizing website jaagore.com.

Fardeen has taken Feroz Khan`s death very badly

A few days after Feroz Khan’s death the Khan family seems to be outwardly calm but his two children - son Fardeen and daughter Laila - haven't come to terms with his death.

"It's a tough time for the family. The two children have taken his death very badly. Laila is inconsolable. But Fardeen is distraught. The family is worried for him. Fardeen keeps breaking down every half an hour. It's a heart-wrenching sight," a source close to the family told.

Now the Khans have arranged a massive prayer meeting at the Marriott in Mumbai on 3 May.

“They’ve chosen a hotel and not a place of worship because of the large crowds that are expected to gather to pay the last respects to FK, ” says a source close to the family. “But it’s a tough time for the family.

The two children have taken FK’s death very badly. Laila is inconsolable. But Fardeen is distraught. The family is worried for him. Fardeen keeps breaking down every half an hour.It’s a heart-rewnching sight.”

Very few Bollywoodians (only Sanjay Gupta, Celina Jaitly, Kishen Kumar and Sajid Khan) could make it to Bangalore for the funeral, although it’s just a 50-minute flight.

At the funeral on Monday there were some surprises. FK’s long-estranged wife Sundari showed up.

“Feroz and Sundari had not spoken to each other for twenty-five years. She not only stayed for the funeral she also stayed the night for the wake where the entire Khan family and close friends spoke their heart out about the man they loved.”

The family is currently in a state of shocked mourning. But Sanjay Gupta who was planning to do the Qurbani remake for FK with Fardeen Khan, is now planning to commission a biography on FK.

Gupta says it’s yet early-days to talk about the biography. “But I wouldn’t like it to be a routine biography. I want to style it on the lines of Hunter Thompson’s Gonzo.

I want to re-construct the great man’s life through the people he knew through various stages in his life from childhood to adolescence to adulthood to his later years. There are two things one can never forget. The first time one has sex and the first time one meets Mr Feroz Khan. He was awesome.”

Gupta own homage to FK is in his next film Acid Rock where Fardeen Khan has been projected exactly like his father. “We never intended it. But when we saw the rushes we were stunned by how much like his father Fardeen walks talks and acts in Acid Rock. It’s uncanny.”

Sanjay Gupta wanted very badly to show Acid Rock to Feroz Khan. “In fact we were planning to fly the print to him. It never happened. We instead sent him the posters. They occupied a pride of place in his den in Bagalore.”

‘I’d love to look like Hepburn:Kangna

The otherwise fashionably-forward Kangna Ranaut will soon be seen taking a step back in time.

She plays a character loosely based on 1970s don Haji Mastan’s girlfriend and yesteryear actress Sona in Once Upon A Time In Mumbai. And the sexy actress is leaving no stone unturned to make sure that she’s bang on where her look is concerned.

To get into the skin of the character, Kangna has been studying yesteryear actresses in both Bollywood and Hollywood. Not only that, she is said to be working on her look that’ll be inspired by these actresses.

From Audrey Hepburn to Asha Parekh and from Sophia Loren to Sadhana, I’m trying to get the hang of their style. The character I play is glamorous and strongly influenced by western fashion, so I want a look that’s western but which also suits someone who’s very much here,” reveals Kangna who is cast opposite Ajay Devgan in this film.

Is there one particular look she really likes? “Audrey Hepburn’s! She was a classy dresser back then. I’d love to look like her,” says Kangna. To get this look, apart from long-eyelashes and heavy eyemake-up — quite characteristic of the era — she is planning to stock up on a lot of high-waisted, narrow trousers and scarves. “Also bell-bottoms were big during the 70s, so I am studying the entire timeline of style,” Kangna says. “I want a look of that era which doesn’t look comical today!”

Impressed though she is by the styles back then, Kangna is happy being a today’s girl. “The styles are more practical and fun in our times,” she says. “High bouffants, bell bottoms are things I can’t imagine today without being laughed at.” Would she like any trend revived? “The shirts. The kinds worn back then were very feminine, practical, yet elegant. I’d love to bring them back,” she smiles.

Kat wins over Sonam Kapoor for Dibakar Bannerjee’s film

Katrina Kaif’s think Brit accent gave her leverage over Sonam Kapoor recently.

Ever since Oye Lucky Lucky Oye worked well in the box office, Sonam and daddy dearest, Anil Kapoor were hoping she would bag the role of the leading lady in his film. He was invited home and shown show reels but much to Sonam’s dismay, the director wasn’t looking for the quintessential Indian beauty.

The film will have Imran Khan and Abhay Deol along with Katrina Kaif. Sonam did catch his attention but with his film requiring a firangi in the film, it was only understandable that Kat was approached for the role.

We hope the next project has Sonam in the flick.

SRK turns to prayer to save KKR

The going is not good for the Kolkata Knight Riders at the IPL and so team owner Shah Rukh Khan has taking to penning down his problems- virtually though. Yes, the superstar, who once famously said that he doesn’t like to blog because he’d rather connect with his fans through the media, is now typing out his worries for the world to see. He’s also using the blog as means to encourage his team to pick themselves up off the floor.

Here’s his latest post titled Keep the Faith:

You must have heard a thousand times that the way to victory does not lie in how hard you can hit; but how hard you can take the hit. And I am not telling you anything new. Every teacher says that to his student, every coach says that to his team and I am sure John has said this to you guys enough times already, just as a father says that to his son.

When they all say this, in their hearts they also wish and hope that their team does not get hit; it doesn’t have to learn to win that way. A father feels, let my son win without ever getting hit; but you still say this to them because you know this world is a hard place. Games are a hard battlefield…your opponent wants to win as much as you do…so there is always going to be a chance that you will get hit. The best of us get hit…Mohammad Ali got hit…Carl Lewis got hit…John Buchanan must have been hit…Sourav Ganguly here has been hit several times.

So lets start from the fact that yes we have been hit already. So this is a good thing. A very good thing! We have been hit and hit hard, so the difficult part is over now. We all should accept that, we do lie at this point very nearly on the floor. So now comes the part, which is more important. The part that we need to show everyone around us, that we can take a hit; we can fall down; but we also know how to scrape ourselves from the floor and continue to fight. We still can take a few hits more and still fight back. Lots of people are saying lots of things about us, but none of them are right. The only right thing is that the owners have faith in this team, the coach has faith in this team; as a matter of fact the team has faith in this team. So there is no problem here at all. Just go out and play to have a great time…enjoy yourselves because pressure only builds more pressure. There is no need to prove anything amongst us. We all trust we are a great bunch of people and cricketers.

One lakh people out there have only one prayer in their hearts, god give our kids strength and a bit of luck to beat the shit out of their opponents. God will listen and deliver today, but just to make sure run faster, hit harder and go out destroy the opponent.

Lets play this like our first game ever as if we have to prove it to the world that we are good and can hit, then lets play this game like the last game of our lives, because we need to prove it to ourselves…that we can take being hit and get up from the floor.

I say a prayer my father taught me; whatever your faith, lets get together and say it… “Nasrun minal lahe wah fatahun kareeb” …

Ad boy Aditya shares space with Kareena

With a face most will recognise, Delhi Boy Aditya Singh Rajput (appropriately nicknamed Addy) has worked in a 100 plus ads and is still raring to go. All of 22, he has worked with Bollywood bigwigs like Shahrukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Ajay Devgan. And there’s going to be another name added to that impressive list.

The face of Close-Up, Amul Kool Café, BSNL and Nokia Ngage, Aditya will now be seen with Kareena Kapoor in a Vivel Soap Ad, for which Kareena is brand ambassador.

When asked about his experience, he says, “Well, we shot separately but the shot’s will come together in the commercial.” Ad Agency Law and Kenneth handle the creative duties for other ITC brands such as Essenza Di Wills, Fiama Di Wills and Vivel soap with the size of the business being estimated to be Rs 30 crore.

Aditya is over the moon and can’t believe the exciting journey he’s having. He says, “I did a lot of theatre and modeling in Delhi, but it was only when I got to Mumbai did my luck shine. Doing the commercial with Hrithik was a dream come true and I couldn’t have asked for a better beginning.”

He’s also acted in several telly serials and was also seen in Anupam Kher’s Maine Gandhi Ko Nahi Maara and Ajay Devgan’s U, Me Aur Hum. “I am a very simple guy and I have always believed in the fact that it is very important to stay grounded. My friends are not from the industry and they remind me of my roots and where I come from. I have seen the type of attitude people get just after a couple of ads and that is something I despise,” adds Aditya.

The actor is now getting geared up for his upcoming film, Mehul Kumar’s Krantiveer 2. When asked about his role, he says “I play the second lead with Mehulji’s daughter, who is also debuting in the movie. It has a very young cast and I’m very happy with my role.” The movie has already completed 50% of its shooting and is slated to release this August.

And after taking over the ad world, we can’t wait to see Addy make his mark in Bollywood.

"No one from the Industry turned up for Feroz Khan's funeral" - Celina Jaitly

On Monday evening Celina Jaitly was very upset, and not just because her mentor and guide and friend Feroz Khan had passed away.

At the funeral in Bangalore, Celina was horrified to see the poor turn-out from the film industry. "There was just me, Sajid Khan, Sanjay Gupta and Kishen Kumar. No one else came from Mumbai except the entire family of Feroz Khan .Among the top stars there was only Hrithik...But he's family to the Khans."

Celina can't hold back her tears. "I was shooting in Delhi when I heard of Feroz's death. I couldn't get a direct flight, so I flew into Bangalore from Mumbai. I had to. I couldn't hold myself back. Feroz Khan was not just the man who gave me my first break. He was my dear friend. I am close to both his children Fardeen and Laila. As for Feroz, what can I say? I could discuss anything from Oscar Wilde to the latest Bollywood film with him. He inspired, amused and amazed me with his knowledge and enthusiasm."

The last time Celina met Feroz was three weeks ago. "I met him at the Breach Candy hospital. He got into his Versace track suit to meet me. That was the man, stylish even when he was in acute pain. He had needles sticking out of his body but he was wearing Versace. He said to me, 'Celina Baby (that's what he called me) Look at what these f***ers have done to me."

She bursts into tears. "I'll miss him so much. I've lost a dear friend, a father-figure. Years ago he had made Zeenat Aman a bikini girl in Qurbani. He made me the same in Janasheen. I'm very proud to be a Feroz Khan heroine."

Bollywood Stars who gave Voting Day a miss

Hema Malini Thursday (30th April) saw quite a few Bollywood bigwigs take out time from their busy schedule to cast their vote for the Elections. The ballot centres in Bandra, Juhu and Andheri areas of Mumbai saw stars such as Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, the Bachchan parivaar, Hrithik Roshan, Ranbir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, John Abraham, Vidya Balan, Farhan Akhtar etc. troop in to cast their vote. However, there were quite a few B-town celebs, who in spite of being pretty active in asking people to vote decided to give the V-Day (Voting Day) a miss themselves. We brings you a list of a few Bollywood stars 'Jo Bolte Kuch Hai Aur Karte Kuch Hain'

Kareena Kapoor

Kareena was part of the special video created by Karan Johar and Tarun Mansukhani encouraging citizens to go and vote. However, when the V-day came, Bebo was nowhere in the picture. Apparently, Kareena is shooting for Karan Johar's production along with Saif Ali Khan and Vivek Oberoi in the US of A and hence couldn't make it. Well, that certainly doesn't count as an excuse cos if Aamir and Shah Rukh could fly down from US and South Africa respectively for casting their Vote, Kareena surely could have. This is one Tashan of Bebo which failed to impress us one bit.

Shahid Kapoor Shahid Kapoor

Kareena's once-upon-a- time 'good friend' Shahid Kapoor also didn't make it to cast his Vote and this despite him being in town. We really don't know the reason why but considering Shahid's 'good friend' Priyanka Chopra was also missing, we cant help but wonder if they were upto something Chup Chup Ke.

Priyanka Chopra Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra was full of emotions encouraging people to go and vote in the special video created by Karan Johar and Tarun Mansukhani. However, when the V-Day came, the actress was conspicuous by her absence. PC…we all are keen to know more on What's your Reason rather than What's Your Raashee?

Salman Khan Salman Khan

Sallu was here, there and everywhere during the pre-election campaigning; hence it was indeed extremely surprising that the actor after encouraging people to go and Vote decided to give V-day a miss himself. The actor apparently was busy shooting in London for his film Veer at a time when he was most 'Wanted' in Mumbai to cast his vote.

Imran Khan Imran Khan

It was Imran Khan who came up with the idea of making a special video asking people to vote. Imran along with Karan Johar and Tarun Mansukhani gathered some of B-town's biggest stars for this initiative but when it was his time to Vote, Imran himself couldn't get his finger inked. The Reason: Imran was not eligible as he is an American citizen. Poor Imran indeed couldn't practice what he preached so hard.

Preity Zinta & Shilpa Shetty

Shilpa Shetty, Preity Zinta Bollywood beauties Preity Zinta and Shilpa Shetty also didn't make it to cast their vote. They were busy cheering their respective teams 'Kings XI Punjab' and 'Rajasthan Royals' at the on-going IPL matches in South Africa. Looks like they didn't realize that the opportunity to vote comes only once in 5 years unlike the IPL which is an annual event

Asin, Deepika Padukone Deepika Padukone and Asin

The South Indian babes Deepika Padukone and Asin couldn't vote in Mumbai as Deepika is originally from Bangalore while Asin is from Kerala. Hope these two beauties at least have voted in their respective home town.

Akshay Kumar Akshay Kumar

Akki was among the other B-town celebs who gave Voting a miss. The star was busy shooting for Priyadarshan's film De Dhana Dhan in Singapore. Akki when you can travel from Chandni Chowk to China in 3 hours you surely could have come down from Singapore to Mumbai and exercised your right to vote as a responsible citizen.

Kajol, Ajay Devgan Ajay Devgan and Kajol

Probably the biggest shocker comes in the form of Ajay Devgan and Kajol who were busy holidaying in Goa and didn't find it necessary to come down and cast their vote. Ajay what's the point in doing a film on Rajniti when you can't even come and vote for the leaders in whose hands lies the future of our country?

Amitabh Bachchan on the completion of one year of his new passion - Blogging

Blogging seems to have become a leading interest in your life. When and how did you develop an interest in it?
It is not a leading interest, but I can safely say that blogging seeks my involvement every day. I had heard of the concept, but had no idea what it was and what it entailed. I heard of Aamir having one and during a discussion with BigAdda who were designing my website, I enquired after it. They happily put the whole concept together within days, trained me on some essentials for its operation and I made a soft beginning. It has been most enlightening since.

Did it occur to you that you may not have the time to pursue blogging seriously?
No. That didn't bother me. What worried me was my absence from it, once having started it 'seriously'. To me it is a wonderful medium to be able to connect with my fans and well -wishers.

What is it about blogging that you like the best?
The ability to convey individually and personally my feelings to the reader, secure in the thought that it shall reach them without any corruption.

You are an extremely private person. And yet you seem happy sharing your day-to-day activities with your bloggers' community. How and why did that happen?
I think this is a completely erroneous notion in the minds of those that form opinions on me. What may I ask, leads one to believe that I am an 'extremely private person'? Every day of my life for the last 40 years I have been going in front of the camera and exposing, or at least trying to expose, every possible emotion or attitude that I possess. Actors are indeed as transparent as they can possibly be when in front of the lens. You come to know how they speak, how they laugh, how they cry, how they dance and run and emote and.... What more would you want to know about them to declassify them from privacy? I lead a normal life, just as any other. If the media is not aware of it, or has failed to discover it, which in today's very intrusive environment I find difficult to believe, then the onus is on them. Just because media is unable to gather much about you publicly, does not mean that you are private.

How close do you feel to these faceless friends who visit you regularly on the blog?
'Faceless' is a harsh term. I refer to them as my 'extended family'. They confide in me. They show affection and concern. They get upset at times and reprimand me. They share their dreams and ambitions with me. They seek answers and opinions from me. They show respect to me as an elder. They abuse me and most importantly, they miss me when I am not there on time. Are not all these wonderfully domesticated attributes? And now very soon my server BigAdda is developing software where my readers will be able to put up their photograph on the blog against their name. So they shall no longer be 'faceless'. Also as we go along, due to the massive patronage in numbers from the readers, many more exciting features are being developed to bring them closer to me. We already have the MoBlog feature functioning, which enables me to write onto the blog through my mobile. And soon I shall have the facility to be able to record on blog with my voice, or dictate a message to them and then finally for them, in time, to be able to communicate their response to me via the mobile. The numbers are quite phenomenal - 25,000 number of visits per day, and over 100,000 page views per day. Multiply and do some mathematics on this from April 2008, every day and the figure is quite amazing. So this shall become eventually a huge exercise in communication management!! My extended family extends further!!

Amitabh Bachchan Are there any special friends /fans on the blog?
To me they are all special. Each one of them. Unique and sincere in whatever they express.

You've certainly enriched their lives by your presence. How have your blogging buddies enriched your life?
Brilliant question!! And one that I am so happy to answer. They enrich my life by their honesty and frankness. By pulling me out of my closet at times and showing me a mirror. By critically analysing events and moments. By educating me on my faults. By acclaiming creativity, not just mine but wherever they see it; a director, a film, an artist a colleague they admire and appreciate, or do not. A moment in time which requires attention and comment. Just such a vast library of information and expression. Some possess absolutely astonishing ideas and vocabulary, distinct and classified. Others bring forth their personal problems and expect nothing more than a patient ear. It's like being in a closed room with each one of them. I follow them and at times correct myself through what they suggest. I also disagree with them and explain why. A most enriching exercise all of it. Whether or not I enrich them is really for them to answer.

How much time do you devote to blogging? Is it now a mandatory part of your daily life?
I blog whenever I get the time. It could be during the day at work, or late at night just before dropping off to sleep. Sometimes, I convey rapidly, most of the time not. But I do convey everyday. As I write to you I am on DAY 271. Not a single day missed since when I started, in April 2008. And may I have the strength to continue in this fashion.

How different is your interaction with them as compared with what you share with regular person-to-person fans?
The same... No different.

Your command over the language is being oohed and aahed about. Has blogging polished up your writing skills?
I have no writing skills. I write what comes to my heart when the computer is ready to digitize my thoughts. The 'oohing' and 'aahing' is more perhaps, I am certain, because of my inadequacy in the craft.

Do you feel liberated of the need to put your thoughts and voice across on the media?
Yes I do. Liberated to give my expression as opposed to that which is perceived. Liberated to contradict a mischievous and evil accusation. Liberated to be able to inform in the correctness of things. Liberated to spread the literary genius of my Father; a due that poets and writers never ever achieve in their lifetime. Liberated from the fear of that sensationalised 'cut and paste' headline the following morning, the following week or following month. Liberated to share a private moment with those that understand and show sympathy. Liberated to have a voice without ulterior benefit. Liberated to feel the warmth and love from those that express, instantly. Liberated to construct a passage into my heart and head. Liberated to be able to challenge. Liberated to accept defeat and to seek the strength to overcome it. Liberated to criticize criticism and to acknowledge acclaim. And finally, liberated to stand up to 'wretched' puerile kindergarten rhymed opinion makers and be able to exercise the constitutional right of every living Indian ; the freedom of my expression.

Finally, has blogging freed you of the inhibitions regarding your privacy? Are you now more inclined to write an autobiography?
I am incapable of writing an autobiography!

Kangana Ranaut doing nude scene for a Telugu Flim

Kangana Ranaut is currently in Hyderabad shooting for her first Telugu movie directed by Puri Jagannath.

A source reveals, "Kangana's role requires her to do a nude scene and she has agreed to do it.

No body double will be used for the same. She has been paid a whopping amount for the role."

The actress was seen in a semi-nude scene in Raaz-The Mystery Continues but this scene is way bolder the never-seen-before type.

Akshay declines to be waxed!

Madame Tussauds is planning to have a huge Indian pavilion at their London centre.

The representatives of the wax museum had come to India to launch cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s wax figure. At the same time they had set up a meeting with actor Akshay Kumar.

“Yes they had set up a meeting with Akshay and told him that they wanted to make his wax figure next because he has an international fan following. But he declined! Akshay does not want tobe waxed because he does not think it is of that great importance. He recently got Padma Shri and that is the kind of award that matters to him more than being waxed,” says a source close to Akki. When we called Akshay, he declined to comment on this topic.

Priyanka-Deepika best buddies

She’s the coolest one in town! Deepika Padukone who extended an olive branch to beau Ranbir Kapoor’s co-stars Bipasha Basu and Sonam Kapoor is easily one of the most affable girls in Bollywood.

Deepika who truly believes that heroines can be friends, no matter what, has found a true friend in Priyanka Chopra. A source informs that Deepika was completely exhausted on April 30, having done an extensive photo-shoot for close to 10 hours, with looks spanning five decades; but Ranbir Kapoor and she still made it to Priyanka Chopra’s party for Hollywood hottie Gerard Butler.

Says a source from the building, “Most of the Bollywood biggies like Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan, Karan Johar, Shahid Kapoor, Arjun Rampal and Mehr Jessia, Imran Khan and girlfriend Avantika Malik, Sussanne Khan and Madhur Bhandarkar were present.

Priyanka, we hear, played the perfect hostess to one of the most talked about parties in B-town. When we asked PC about Deepika, she was all praise for her. “She is a great girl. I have known her well even before Om Shanti Om released. “I truly like her,” said Priyanka.

In fact, two months ago, when Ranbir and Deepika hosted a dinner for friends, Priyanka was one of the first to arrive.

Akshay’s back on the blogosphere

Akshay Kumar has updated his Facebook page after a while now. The star’s excuse has been that he was extremely busy shooting for his Khatron Ke Khiladi's Season 2. On the blog, the superstar mentions his busy schedule, the desperate measures he took to make sure he could watch the IPL and most surprisingly, he gives a shout out to his ex-girlfriend Shilpa Shetty. Here’s what he wrote:

“Hello my friends,
Firstly I’d like to apologise for the long gap, I’ve recently been in South Africa shooting for the second season of Khatron Ke Khiladi Fear Factor in Cape Town, as well as trying to juggle my time with dubbing for Kambakht Ishq, supporting my Delhi Dare Devils at the IPL, taking my entire family on Safari whilst preparing myself for some insane stunts for my show. Thank god I’m much better at juggling 5 extreme events than I’ll ever be at juggling 5 balls…”

IPL Fever
“Speaking of balls I’m now in Singapore filming for De Dhana Dhan… But the second I landed what was the most important thing to me - My IPL! So I called up my producer and said I don’t care where I stay, even if it’s in the back of a kitchen, I need to watch my IPL. Bad news, my hotel didn’t have the channel; so what else can I do but personally find the hotel manager and fold my hands in humble request and plead and plead for what ever it takes to please get that channel.”

Dear Shilpa?…is Twinkle reading?
“Can you imagine by the next day I was sitting in my room watching KKR vs PKXI, happy is not enough to describe how I was feeling… And wow what a season it’s been, seriously I wish the best for all the teams, you have me on the edge of my seat, and I’d like to send my best regards to Shah Rukh Khan’s Knight Riders, they’ve put up a good fight so don’t worry boys you will always be loved. And Preity Z, she has a tremendous fighting spirit which I must say I adore, she makes us all proud. And dear Shilpa, what a come back after the first match, Shane Warne and Yusuf Pathan have carried her team well, keep smiling Shilpa…”

The superstar also encouraged all sportspersons
“While we’re on the subject of sports, as much as I love my cricket, my family has many sporting talents in them, my little girl Simar loves basketball, and she’s won matches for her school already. But seeing like most sports in India (unlike cricket) it doesn’t have that much funding or backing. So I did some research that I’d like you all to check out. Look up the “Harlem Globetrotters” they are an American basketball league that have taken everyone by storm, they are incredible at basketball but there’s a twist, they go around performing the funniest comedian tricks in the arena which just leaves you with your mouth open in awe, seriously! Please check it out, coz I feel that not being a world champion at a sport doesn’t mean you can’t hold a place in peoples hearts with that sport, those guys are champions but it ain’t always about winning, it’s the taking part… So as I sign off, remember you don’t have to be the Best to be Great, you just have to want to get up and take part in something.”

And he mentions Shilpa again…
“For a simple example look where it’s got Shilpa, I remember when she didn’t know the difference between a wicket and a stump, now she owns half a team. And my daughter Simar may not be in the NBA yet, (she’s only 9) but she tries and strives to be.
So people Be a Sport, wake up and try a Sport.
With much love and support
Your Akshay…”

Careful Akshay, this sudden fondness for the ex could get you into some deep trouble with the missus.

Dulha Mil Gaya to release in July

Mudassar Aziz’s long awaited debut film Dulha Mil Gaya will hopefully release this year. The movie, produced by Vivek Vaswani and starring Shah Rukh Khan, Sushmita Sen, Fardeen Khan, Tara Sharma and Johnny Lever, was postponed due to Shah Rukh’s lack of dates.

Dulha Mil Gaya marks the return of SRK and Sushmita as an onscreen couple since Farah Khan’s Main Hoon Na released in 2004. But new director remains tightlipped about the project, saying, “It’s not the right time to talk about anything. When that time comes, we will announce everything.”

Co-producer Anuj Saxena, however, is more confident, saying, “Dulha Mil Gaya, which has been delayed, is finally ready to release. If everything goes well, we will release it this July.” The film is also being co-produced by Adlabs and Insight Productions.

Dulha Mil Gaya revolves around four main characters: Shah Rukh Khan as Raj Oberoi, Sushmita Sen as Lisa DD, Fardeen Khan as Shashank and Tara Sharma as Jessica DD. It movie has been shot extensively in Trinidad and Tobago and Shah Rukh Khan plays the role of a Trinidadian businessman.

Director Mudassar has written the dialogues for the film Zindagi Rock before venturing into direction. He is also said to be helping Sushmita Sen with her historical film based on Rani Laxmibai.
