Hotties to set the BLUE sea on fire!!

Get ready for a sizzling hot number underwater as Bollywood hotties Akshay, Katrina, Zayed, Lara gear up to set the sea on fire!!

Yes you have heard it right; the hot–bods are going under the sea to shoot for the first ever underwater song sequence in Bollywood for their upcoming film BLUE. Directed by Anthony D'Souza BLUE is touted as India's first underwater action–adventure film. First he made the stars of the movie do some stunts underwater. And now he has come up with the idea of shooting a song underwater which no one in the industry has tried it out.

Though in Kunal Kohli's THODA PYAAR THODA MAGIC he had shot a steamy number 'Lazy Lamhe' on Amisha Patel using underwater camera and yesteryears stars Jeetendra and Babita also shot for a similar song sequence in ANMOL MOTI, but that was apparently shot in a swimming pool. If the reports are to be believed than in case of BLUE it will be actually shot under sea which automatically become first of its sort.

Reportedly, Anthony got inspired to shoot underwater song sequence after watching an ad. When Anthony put across the idea in front of the entire team of BLUE they were thrilled by Anthony's extraordinary thought.

An Akshayless Eid!

For the past four years it has become a tradition of sorts for an Akshay Kumar starrer to release in an around the festive Eid period. The first film which started the trend was Subhash Ghai's Abbas–Mustan directed, Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor starrer, AITRAAZ (2004). Next year (2005) saw Priyadarshan's comic caper, the Akshay Kumar and John Abraham starrer GARAM MASALA release. And the very next year it was the turn of romcom, JAAN–E–MANN co–starring, Salman Khan hitting the screens around the festive season.

As if it was not enough, last year's Eid once again saw Priyadarshan return with his favourite hero, Akshay Kumar in the comedy–horror flick, BHOOL BHULAIYAA. Barring JAAN–E–MANN which suffered at the hands of Shah Rukh Khan's DON, all the remaining three above mentioned projects were box–office successes.

However this year, fans of Akshay Kumar will have to make do with his still running super–hit, SINGH IS KINNG, which (as per trade sources), is expected to carry into Eid with a reasonable number of prints. And for others there are as many as three interesting and different films releasing around Eid. The Sanjay Dutt–Imran Khan starrer, KIDNAP, releases on the 1st of October. Gandhi Jayanti (2nd October) will see Abhishek Bachchan's DRONA and Nandita Das's RAMCHAND PAKISTANI releasing world wide across screens.

Big B, SRK, Akki, who's bigger?

The newly emerged KINNG of Bollywood Akshay Kumar or Akki, as rightly called, is definitely riding high.

With back–to–back hits he has proved to be the star with the Midas touch with all of his films proving to be winners for the producers. This in turn soar his demand in the market and placed him among the top league of Bollywood. After conquering Box–office, Akki has also become King of the ad world. A couple of days back he was appointed as the new brand ambassador for Levi's jeans '501' brand.

And if all this was not enough than here is one more reason for Akki to be rightly called as the 'King' of tinsel town. As per the latest reports, Bollywood Superstar Akshay Kumar has been awarded the title of 'Brand Ambassador of the year'. This coveted title was honoured to him at the CNBC Awaaz consumer awards 2008 held in Mumbai recently.

Akki won this title leaving behind the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Hrithik Roshan in the race.

Till date Shah Rukh and Big B used to be touted as the most powerful and bankable brands. Infact Shah Rukh is the only star who has supposedly the maximum number of brand endorsements under his belt. But with Akshay's entry in the brand war this competition becomes fiercer from here on.

Do you think Akshay is the right choice to be called as the 'Brand Ambassador of the year'?

Or you think someone else deserves.

Hrithik's most sensuous film to date

While stories about all kinds of calamities, manmade and otherwise, are filtering in from the US regarding Anurag Basu's now-you-steamy-no-you-don't film Kites, father and son Rakesh and Hrithik Roshan are happily shooting the film to complete it in the first week of October.

Though the original Director of Photography Bobby Singh has opted out, the Roshans claim there was no illwill involved in the changeover.

Says Hrithik from Las Vegas, "It was an amicable split. Now Ayananka Bose is doing it."

Ayananka Bose who was a former assistant to the well-known cinematographer Ravi Chandran has shot Yashraj Films' Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom.

The change, says Hrithik, has made no difference to the project, " We shifted earlier this week to Las Vegas as per plan. We're now here in Vegas for a month. Then we shoot in LA for eight days. After that we're done."

Kangana Ranaut who plays a female lead in Kites has just joined the Roshans and her favourite director Anurag Basu in Vegas. After working with Kangana in Gangster and Metro Basu strongly recommended the actress to the Roshans who liked what they saw.

According the sources, the change of guard behind the camera makes no difference to the chemistry between Hrithik and Barbara.

"The two sizzle together. This is Hrithik's most sensuous film to date. The accent here is not only on his dancing(which Hrithik has to go easy on after his knee injury and recovery), but on his ability to generate sensuality which has so far remained largely under wraps, the chemistry with Aishwarya in Dhoom 2 notwithstanding. In Kites director Anurag Basu has shot another more sensuous side of Hrithik."

According to sources the scenes between Hrithik and Mori were so intimate and sensuous that papa Rakesh Roshan would gently be asked to leave the set.

The Roshans are not talking about the film's sensuous theme and scenes.

But Rakesh Roshan does inform that all is smooth-sailing with Kites. "We are on schedule. After finishing shooting in New Mexico on 12 September we've shifted to Las Vegas. From here we'll relocate for the last lap of the US shooting to Los Angeles on Oct 3. We're returning to Mumbai on 12 October, " the senior Roshan signs off.

Hari Puttar

Rating: *

Kiddie films, aimed at kids between 6 and 60, are slowly making inroads in Bollywood. Hari Puttar - A Comedy of Terrors is the newest entrant in this family.

Now let's set the record straight. Hari Puttar - A Comedy of Terrors is not remotely inspired by HARRY POTTER, but it actually borrows from HOME ALONE. Unfortunately, directors Rajesh Bajaj and Lucky Kohli make a complete mess of what could've been a great kiddie fare.

Seriously, what were the directors thinking when they okayed this apology of a script? The directors seem completely clueless about how smart today's kids are. And the kind of stuff they have an access to (television, cinema, games). They've witnessed far better stuff than what's dished out in this misadventure.

Hari Prasad (Zain Khan) or Hari Puttar, as he is fondly called, is a bright 10-year-old who has recently moved from India to U.K. with his parents.

His father, Prof. Dhoonda, is assigned to work on a secret project with the Defence Forces at a remote location in U.K. He has access to confidential information that is stored on a chip and safely kept at his house.

Within days of their arrival in London, Hari's aunt (Lilette Dubey) and uncle DK (Jackie Shroff) visit the Dhoonda residence with their own as well DK's boss' children. Suddenly, the house is filled with the effervescence of no less than ten kids.

At this point, everything goes for a spin for Hari Puttar. Not only is he thrown out of his room to accommodate the girls, he is also ragged and ridiculed by all the other kids for being too naïve. Hari Puttar suddenly feels unwanted, undermined and unappreciated.

The family takes off for a holiday, leaving Hari Puttar and Tuk Tuk (Swini Khara), his cousin, behind, who confront the two goons (Saurabh Shukla, Vijay Raaz) out to rob the chip.

Even if you're inspired by a hugely popular English film, the challenge lies in Indianising it well enough. But HARI PUTTAR - A COMEDY OF TERRORS is an amateurish attempt all the way.

Here, the goons exchange the choicest of expletives (beeped obviously). Here, the villain (Mr. Blue Contact Lenses with an Ajit hangover; zero expressions) and his cronies (Saurabh Shukla in a hideous wig and Vijay Raaz in outlandish outfits) are more of buffoons. Here, in a kiddie film, you get to watch a sexy Shamita Shetty gyrating to a promotional track.

The scripting is amateurish and hence, whatever unfolds on screen makes no impact whatsoever. Any redeeming aspect? The penultimate 15 odd minutes when the kids try their best to keep the villains at bay. Also, the animation is quite good.

Zain Khan does a decent job. Swini Khara, seen in CHEENI KUM, gets no scope. Sarika looks disinterested. Also, she looks ill at ease delivering Punjabi lines. Lilette Dubey is miscast. As for Jackie Shroff, the less said the better. It's also sad to see actors like Saurabh Shukla and Vijay Raaz being reduced to such roles. They ham!

On the whole, Hari Puttar - A Comedy of Terrors is a poor show all the way

Don't Believe Everything You Hear: Kareena

Bollywood actor Kareena Kapoor Monday dismissed reports that she had turned a producer.

"I have no intentions to turn a producer. The rumours are baseless. There is no truth to it, " the actor said in a statement here.

A source close to Kareena echoed this, adding: "Kareena is committed to several projects and is going to be neck deep in work for another two years. So where is the time to launch her own production house?"

Rumours were rife that Kareena was to launch her own production banner with the first film to be a romantic comedy directed by her close friend and director Lovely Singh of “Kyaa Love Story Hai” fame. Kareena was to play the lead.

It also raised speculation that her real life beau Saif Ali Khan would star opposite her in the film.

However, the source maintained: "Kareena hails from the RK family and with the prestigious RK banner with her, why would Kareena launch an independent production house?"

I can even look good in a bikini: Gul Panag

Former Miss India Gul Panag, mostly seen in de-glamorised acting roles, recently caught public attention by posing in a black lingerie for the cover page of Maxim, a magazine for men. Gul said she did it to show off the "glamorous and real side" of her personality.

"It was not for a change in my image. I am very happy to have the image that I have. I am associated with a certain type of work and I don't want to change that ever. But what is important is that people should understand that what they see on screen and what I am are two different persons, " Gul told.

Gul has received critical acclaim for playing offbeat roles in films like "Dor" and "Manorama Six Feet Under", in which she was seen mostly in Indian attire.

"In reality, I am not that kind of person as shown in most of my films. I am not a village girl clad in 'saris' and 'salwar-kameez' in real life. I am a regular modern girl who is glamorous in real life and that's what I wanted to show. In fact, nobody has ever seen me in 'saris' and 'salwar-kameez' in real life, " said Gul who debuted with Parth Arora's "Dhoop" in 2003.

"I can look good in a bikini or any other sexy outfit or equally convincing in a nightie. That's the job of an actor, " she added.

Commenting upon her roles, she said: "I believe that I'm extremely versatile as I can do power packed performances as well as look good as and when required. I don't want the people to be confused that the role that I have been playing in my films is what I am in real life. It's just the man who is playing the villain in films is not bad in real life."

What made you say yes to Maxim?

"Why not? It's the highest selling men's magazine in the world, " she said.

Asked about her future plans, she said: "It's not that I'll be doing more glamorous or power packed roles. It's about the offers. Glamour cannot be substance to a role. However, in most of my forthcoming films, I have glamorous roles.

"In 'Hello' I am glamorous. I have two more films - 'Straight' and 'Hello Darling' - in which too I have glamorous roles."

The actress said she is playing a modern, urban young woman in "Hello".

"My character is neither black nor white. It has a huge amount of grey in her. In the story, she is stuck in a conflict in choosing between love and practicality."

Based on novelist Chetan Bhagat's "One Night At The Call Centre" also stars Salman Khan, Katrina Kaif, Sohail Khan, Isha Koppikar, Sharman Joshi, Amrita Arora and Arbaaz Khan.

Gul said she liked the story and her role in particular. "I never sign a film unless and until I am convinced with the story. In this case, I knew the story beforehand because I had read the book earlier. It is an extremely interesting story and I hope people will like me in the role."

Gul said she enjoyed most working for "Manorama Six Feet Under".

"It is closest to my heart and I enjoyed working in it the most."

Among the newcomers, Gul finds Imran Khan as most dynamic and wants to work with him.

"I think Imran is extremely talented and the most promising among the newcomers. I came to meet Imran for a short while during an audition where we interacted and I found him a highly sensible and dynamic actor. If given a choice among the newcomers, I would definitely choose him, " she said.

Sophie has body that is absolutely sexy'

Ask prominent lensman which actress is a perfect combo of sex appeal and innocence and most opine that it's Sophie Chaudary.

Sophie has just an exclusive photoshoot with her favorite Photographer Ram Bherwani.

The photographer said, "Sophie is looking fittest and best ever. Filmmakers have yet to capture her the way I have, Sophie sets my camera on fire.

The same will happen to the cinema screens if filmmakers can catch her soul through their character and story. Sophie is one actress to watch out for."

I cannot stand good-looking men: Neha Dhupia

Your man will be from?
Definitely not from the (film) industry.

Very simple. I don’t have a liking for industry men much. Secondly, I would not like to discuss films after coming back home from work.

Would he be a metrosexual man?
No way! I detest metrosexual men right from my childhood.

Why so?
Because, I just cannot stand men who pedicure and manicure. I remember telling my father why do these men not leave pedicure and manicure to women.

Do you mean to say that men should leave their fingers and feet unclean?
No, not at all. I don’t mean them to remain dirty, but cleanliness not at the cost of being manly. They should not exhibit feminine qualities.

Would he be very good looking?
I cannot stand good-looking men.

He has to be someone who is robust and has a manly appearance.

A man with brain or brawn?
A man with brain would be my choice.

Would he need to be rich?
See, I prefer a man to excel in earning and leave the spending to me (laughs).

I'm single, Riteish is just my friend: Genelia D'Souza

Imran Khan's petite and perky costar Genelia D'Souza in Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na started her career with Mr Bachchan, no less.

"I did a Parker pen ad with him when I was still a kid. It seems I've been acting forever. Strangely acting was never an option. That ad was directed by Mansoor Khan. He kept me in mind for Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, and here I am."

She continues, "Actually this film was being produced by Jhamu Sugandh first. That's when I screen -tested for the role of Aditi. I met the director Abbas Tyrewalla and he almost finalized me.

But he needed bulk dates from me and I was busy down South. He wanted to shoot at stretch. I couldn't do. I got busy in the South. Then one day I got a call from Aamir Khan's office.

Abbas wanted a complete newcomer. But Aamir wanted a girl who suited the character. The next thing I knew, I was on board."

Genelia says she was never that keen on an acting career. "But when I saw how I was appreciated down South I fell in love with the industry.I've been lucky. I didn't plan anything. I've never contacted a single producer. So far it's been an awesome journey."

After Tamil and Telugu Genelia has just made her debut in Kannada film. "I'm sure I'll be able to dub in all the South Indian languages soon. I know I can do it. I just need to get the slangs and colloquialisms correct. Honestly I need to dub my own lines in the South to give complete performances."

In Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na Genelia plays a girl quite like herself. "Except for one detail. Aditi picks fights with every damn person. I'm not like that.

I'd rather talk it out than fight. I had to really let go to be fighting on screen all the time.

The workhops really help. Both Imran and I are close to the characters. But we also discovered new facets of ourselves while playing the characters."

Like Asin, Genelia is now dividing her time between Bollywood and the South. "I'm getting a lot of calls in Mumbai. I want to balance it out. But the priority would be Hindi films right now because I've worked really long in the South.

But my South Indian films are also very important. I get very satisfying roles in Tamil and Telugu. And I can't let them go. Let's just say I'll do one film down South for every two films I do here.

In any case they wrap up their films super-fast down South."

The rumours about Genelia D'Souza and her first co-star Riteish Deshmukh have the child-woman flummoxed.

"I'm very much single. Riteish is a friend. But that's it. I've no idea where these rumours come from. We're both very busy. When we occasionally meet up we're normal with one another, not the least selfconscious about what's written about us.

I'm very new to all this. I've done the two films with Riteish Tujko Meri Kasam and Masti….I started young, yes. In 2003 I had three releases in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, " the Mumbai girl informs me.

"I got busy with the South that 's the only reason why it took me so long to get noticed in Bollywood.

There's a buzz about Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na because it is Imran's debut film. I'm definitely looking at it as a high-potential film.

I also had fun doing Priyadarshan's Mere Baap Pehle Aap. I enjoy doing films in all languages and genres."

She also has It's My Life with Harman Baweja coming up.

"I've done the original in Telugu down South. Then I also did the remake in Tamil. Now I'm doing it in Hindi. The Tamil and Telugu versions were similar. But the Hindi version is very different. Today both the South and Hindi are high-potential industries for me. I'm still a newcomer in Bollywood."

It's stupid to talk about my Kiss with Sanjay Dutt: Vidya Malvade

From playing hockey in Chak De India to playing a mother in Kidnap. What a transition?
(Laughs) It was a real sweet thing what Mr. Sanjay Gadhavi did. He called me on my birthday to wish me and that is when I had just finished shooting Chak De.

He said, "Happy Birthday to you. There is a gift I'd like to give you if you'd like to take it. Why don't you come to the office and meet me. There is a film I am doing and it's the only love story in the film. Why don't you come down and read it with me. It's opposite Sanjay Dutt".

I said, "Ok. I'll come down and read my part". Gadhavi then adds, "It's a part of the mother". Initially I did question Sanjay Gadhavi whether my part was good or not but he assured me that it was a nice. I've known Gadhavi for a really long time.

I remember the first audition that I ever did in the industry was for his film Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai and we've been in touch ever since. It was obviously a pleasure working with him now in Kidnap.

Tell us about your rapport with your husband in the film Sanjay Dutt. I heard you guys don't get along well together.
Ha ha ha. Initially I was nervous. I've never met Sanjay Dutt before and he's like this 'deadly Dutt' a 'deadly giant'.

So rugged from the exterior but sweet and soft spoken from the inside. He made me really comfortable with everything. He told me to just chill around and do whatever I felt like doing on the sets. No need to get worried about anything.

Take us a bit into your flashback story.
There is some of my story in the flashback and also in the present. The flashback shows us as a couple and in the present, we are not a couple any more but due to some unfortunate circumstances we have to come together and how from hating each other we eventually come together. It's a small little flashback.

When I opened the papers this morning, I hear this story about your kissing scene with Sanjay Dutt. Why such a fuss Vidya?
I don't know. I can't understand what the controversy is all about. I can't really say anything. I haven't seen the film yet but the kissing scene is there.

It's a scene, which is really well shot, and you may miss it as it's just there for a split second. It's a miss kiss and it's barely there. It's stupid to talk about something like this. Secondly, it's about two people falling in love.

I mean, doesn't a kiss normally happen with two people who love each other so much or what? The Press needs to grow up a little bit and don't make like a big deal out of it. I keep telling Gadhavi that I'm dead sure that half the crowd is going to miss the scene anyway as it comes right after the intermission.

Did Sanjay Gadhavi call you after reading the news?
He was under the impression that I told the Press about the kissing scene. But I cleared the misunderstanding that it wasn't me. I don't think it's a big deal anyway.

But Kidnap isn't the only film which has kissing scenes. Gadhavi's Dhoom 2 also landed up in a big controversy.
Absolutely. As far as I can recall, there was a nice romantic scene in Siddharth Anand's Salaam Namaste and Bachna Ae Haseeno had Ranbir kissing all the beautiful ladies. So what's the big fuss really?

If your daughter in the film looks so sexy, I bet the mother will be worth a watch.
(Laughs) If you're talking about bikinis in Kidnap then 'No'. That's not happening. In terms of a glam mom, she is completely glamorous and sexy. My look is more from Chanel to Armani to Zara kind of a feel. So it's very rich.

I'm obviously playing a character much older than my age. So she can't be all over the place you know. She looks nice because she is a rich man's wife and a well kept woman of today. And I am not wearing a bikini (laughs).

Did you get a chance to share screen space with Imran Khan?
None at all with Imran and only one scene with Minissha.

Will you be seen throughout in the film or are there only bits and pieces of you?
Yes I am there throughout the film. Actually, I'm going to watch it in a day or two and then I'll be able to tell you better (laughs).

What are your expectations from Kidnap?
Very high. Right now I'm nervous. When Sanjay Gadhavi says that you have done a good job in the film means that he is happy with your performance. But I am very critical about myself that until I see it, I'll always find something wrong with me. I am restless right now too.

You've worked with SRK and now with Sanjay Dutt. Two of Hindi film's best actors around. Are you over the moon?
Of course. Sanjay Dutt has been an inspiration. SRK is so much of energy; so much of focus and just the aura around him is immaculate. You receive so much from him as an actor.

In terms of Sanjay Dutt, he was going through a very bad patch in time and there was a time when I didn't even know if the film would see the light of the day or not but Sanju baba never got any of his worries on the sets.

He was still the kind and a gentle person that he is. He would do his job and then go back home. I've never seen Sanjay Dutt scream or yell. He was very patient.

Do you think Kidnap should be dedicated to Sanjay Dutt?
I think the film belongs to him and every single person who has worked on the film. I don't think one person can make or break a film really. But a big part of Kidnap is Mr Sanjay Dutt. I respect him totally for what he has gone through and the way he has come out shining, Kidnap truly belongs to him if not dedicated.

Even though you haven't got a scene with Imran in Kidnap, how do you rate him after Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na and now Kidnap?
Imran Khan is a complete rockstar. You put him in anything and he'll do justice to his role. He is so much like his mamu Aamir Khan. He does a lot of homework, works on his look and body language. And he is so so good looking. I've seen girls going crazy about him.

Any clichéd message for your fans?

Imran hardly meets his girlfriend Avantika now

If there's a contest for the most chilled-out star-in-the-making in Bollywood Imran Khan would probably win hands- down.

Nothing fazes Imran. Not even a road accident.

On Thursday afternoon as he was being driven to the venue of his rehearsals for Abhinay Deo's Delhi Belly, a speeding vehicle bumped hard into his vehicle from behind damaging Imran's car's bumper and scratching the posh paint.

"There was some damage to the car, yes," admitted Imran. "This happened right in front of Tulip Star hotel. Vehicles came to a standstill and we came down from our cars. I was in a hurry to reach my rehearsals. So we exchanged addresses and I'll be taking up the matter with him later."

So did the guy who caused the accident recognize the newest star on the block?

"Nah, he was in too much a hurry and too flustered by what had happened," says the star in a hurry.

Nowadays Imran's schedules are so choc-a-bloc he hardly gets time to meet his girlfriend Avantika. Or read scripts.

"I'm now reduced to doing interviews on cars, in the shower anywhere thanks to the promotion of Kidnap. I'm also being offered ridiculous sums of money to just attend functions, parties and events.

I'm really surprised by the lengths people are willing to go to to get stars into their orbit. I'm offered unheard-of money to simply attend parties have a drink hang around and leave in ten minutes."

But Imran's selfcensorship is acutely developed. That is why he hasn't signed on to endorse any product as yet.

"I just can't identify with any product that I'm asked to endorse. It's not about not doing cigarette and alcohol ads. That of course goes without saying. I won't even endorse clothes or drinks that I don't use.

I recently had a big Delhi garment industry offering me an endorsement. But I don't wear their clothes! How can I ask other people to wear them? I'll endorse the products that I use."

Selfrighteous and embarrassingly honest Imran doesn't deny his rumoured remuneration per film: a whopping Rs 12 crores.

"Like I said the money is not the criteria. It's what I'm comfortable doing. And after Kidnap and Luck, it's only Aamir's Delhi Belly I've said yes to."

Imran desperately needs a holiday. In fact his new best-buddy and mentor Sanjay Dutt invited Imran for a vacation. Imran refused.

"Sanju Dutt has gone on a safari into the jungles of Tanzania and the Congo in Africa. He asked me to come along. But here I am battling publicity interviews, rehearsals and a damaged car. Tough luck."

Katrina is the hottest of all

This weekend on 'Sajid Superstars', Arjun Rampal and Dia Mirza are the guests for the evening. Read on to know what to expect from the show:

- First to arrive is Arjun Rampal who talks in length about his personal life. From the place of his birth to the college he studied in Delhi University to his initial days of struggle in the world of glamour, Arjun gives a detailed account.

- He shares an interesting incident about his courtship days with popular supermodel Meher Bhasin. Because he didn't have much money in hand during his earlier days, he and Meher couldn't afford to eat non-vegetarian food on a daily basis. So it used to be once a week for them!

- However, now with his financial status being up there, he frequents quite a few eateries with his wife and kids. No wonder, he gets a special gift from Sajid Khan that revolves around food. Check the special episode to know what does Arjun have in store for him!

- There is some shock in store for audiences as Arjun discloses the real status about rumors revolving around him being a bisexual.

Sajid probes him around the casting couch in the fashion industry and also nails him on the rumors which floated around his alleged affair with a popular male dress designer a few years back.

While Arjun does acknowledge that he didn't have disrespect for any individual regardless of his or her sexual orientation, he admits that his fans ranging from males, females to homosexuals. But how about his own orientation? Arjun tells it all!

- Last few months have been great for Arjun professionally with Don, Om Shanti Om and recently Rock On turning out to be huge box office winners.

Arjun confesses that Om Shanti Om is quite close to his heart since it changed his life. He appreciates Farah Khan for being the best director he has worked with since she could help him understand himself as an actor.

- No wonder, the best scene of his features from Om Shanti Om while the worst scene is from.....Any guesses?!?

- He openly reveals his admiration for Shah Rukh Khan and details how he has not just influenced his life but taught him a lot as a producer, actor and person.

- When asked whom did he find the hottest of all, Katrina featured on the top of the list for Arjun

- Arrival of Dia Mirza on the show makes things further interesting as she talks about what went wrong between Vashu Bhagnani (who launched her in Rehnna Hai Terre Dil Mein) and her. She was apparently the lead heroine in his Om Jai Jagdish as well but was later replaced by Tara Sharma.

- Dia Mirza gets sentimental talking about her love life. She says that her heart is pure when in love and she doesn't feel like hiding anything from anyone.

For her, it is the love that an individual carries for her which is more important that the riches he carries. No wonder, Sajid and Arjun were seen pulling her leg for this statement of hers!

- As many are aware, Lara Dutta, Priyanka Chopra and Dia Mirza were #1, 2 and 3 in the Miss India contest a few years back. This prompted Ranbir to ask Dia a cheeky question that whether three of them continue to be enemies till date!

- On being asked that who is the better actor between the three of them, Dia boldly said that it is her. She also declared that even the combined talent of Lara and Priyanka wasn't on par with the talent that she came with.

- Wait, there is more to come. On quizzed about the woman who was prettier - whether Ash or herself - Dia cheekily answered that she knew the answer but since Ash is senior, she would say that it's her

Shreyas to CLICK by the year end

Wise men say that 'talent run's in a man's blood and can't be taught', which is very true, especially in the case of our Marathi Manoos – Shreyas Talpade.

WELCOME TO SAJJANPUR has done great business at the box office, and trade is quite upbeat that it will be soon going to be followed by GOLMAAL RETURNS, but the biggest surprise that Shreya's audience will get is going to be towards the end of this year with the release of CLICK, a Sangeeth Sivan directorial venture, which is out 'n' out horror film.

On asking Sangeeth, how was it working with Shreyas, he said, ''Shreyas has done a brilliant job in the film and this is going to be the biggest surprise for the audiences. We have given him a new image and not something he has done before in any of his movies. He is more modern and hip in the film and it is a very unconventional role. Shreyas has definitely risen as an actor. He is par excellence.''

Hoping to see Shreyas light the screen soon and wish that the movie 'clicks' with the audiences' world over.

Amidst much speculations, talks were rife of the possibility of Sanjay Gadhvi's Sanjay Dutt–Imran Khan starrer, KIDNAP, carrying in its prints the trailer of Aamir Khan's GHAJINI. But that was never the case, even though both the above mentioned movies are Studio 18/Indian Films releases.

In fact KIDNAP carries with it the trailers of Rohit Shetty's Ajay Devgan, Kareena Kapoor and Arshad Warsi starrer, GOLMAAL RETURNS and a few other promos as well. So where does that leave Murugadoss's much awaited Aamir Khan, Asin, Jiah Khan and Mohit Ahlawat action extravaganza, GHAJINI?

Well, the first theatrical promo of the Christmas release, GHAJINI, is expected to be unleashed on the big screen on Diwali, included in the prints of GOLMAAL RETURNS, which will release worldwide on 29th October.

Sanjay, Akshay, Zayed, Lara, & Katrina to shoot Bollywood's first underwater song

At the moment Zayed Khan is the happiest and the unhappiest actor from Bollywood. He's on top of the world because he'll soon be shooting the first underwater song- sequence ever in Hindi cinema.

Excited as hell Zayed who has been stationed in Bangkok and Phuket for the past month says, "It's never been done before. On the concept level itself, it sounds too outrageous... The entire cast singing in the deep-sea. That's unique-man!" Hate to burst Zayed's bubble. But decades ago in Anmol Moti claiming to be India's first underwater film Jeetendra and Babita sang 'underwater', which was actually a swimming pool. So yes, Blue is the first Bollywood film that will have the entire cast of Sanjay Dutt, Akshay Kumar, Lara, Katrina and Zayed doing a song sequence in the deep sea. A baffling concept for sure.

Laughs Zayed, "Yes. But you've to see how we're going to do it. The director got the concept from an ad. We all jumped at it. It's not often that you get to do something so unique." But with the excitement comes the damper. Inclement weather in Bangkok is playing havoc with the Blue schedules. Says the anxious and depressed Zayed, "We knew it was going to rain in Bangkok and Phuket. But not like this! Apparently, this area has never had so much rain. Everyday we're losing precious time. Today again, we're stuck indoors while it pours outside. The producers are losing Rs. 25 lakhs per day. And moreover we can't extend the shooting because we-Sanju Sir, Akshay and I-can't give combined dates for a long time," said Zayed on Saturday.

A good excuse for the unit to bond? "Not really. I'd rather be back home with my wife Malli (Malaika) and son Zidaan. I miss them specially my son. I want to watch him grow, not be away for long periods from home, and miss this phase in my son's life." Zidaan can't travel with Papa all the time. "He came with my wife to the Bahamas when we were shooting there. But he can't keep traveling all over. He has to develop an immunity system. I do miss my son. But my wife emails me his pictures everyday."

I am into a serious committed relationship right now: Tulip Joshi

Your man should be...
What he is, nothing more, nothing less.

One must-have quality in him?
Honesty. I cannot tolerate lies and deceit.

His profession?
Does that really matter? Till the time he loves me, it is okay if he is into business, job or something else (laughs).Maybe I am saying all this because he is from outside the film industry and we are very happy together!

Brainy or brawny?
Definitely brainy because it’s only brain which makes one successful. Brawny people are mostly dumb.

His beauty for you would be?
Spiritual. I am heavily into spirituality and don’t believe in either inner or outer beauty.

His sense of humour?
It’s a must. This is what makes him unique. He rocks because of his amazing ability to make others laugh.

Importance of calls and SMSes in a relationship?
It’s an essential part in our lives now. In other words, it’s a must. How can a relationship survive without proper communication!

The next level of your relationship?
It’s secondary for me at the moment. I am into a serious committed relationship right now and so marriage and the next level, whatever that may mean, is not at all important for me.

His metrosexuality?
I don’t mind him being metrosexual. Unlike others, I would not say they (metrosexual men) are sissy.

The most romantic getaway with him?
It has to be Venice. It’s so beautiful!

If Kareena can wear a bikini why can't I: Minissha Lamba

There's a lot said about your white bikini outfit in the film. Why such a big issue?
I don't know. You know, I've not been a big film buff. But I think in the seventies, we did have makers and an India which was very progressive.

Then the 80's and the 90's were like the dark ages, which reflected in the cinemas as well. The quality of cinema went down. Now we have a very popular culture and the bikini is back in business. We wear equally sensuous Indian outfits as well.

But when you wear a bikini, the westernised form of the ultimate sexy minimalistic outfit, there is a lot of curiosity out in India because we feel that the Indian women are shedding their so called shackles which are representative of conformist clothing.

Then you have actresses like Aishwarya, who've gone completely gorgeous in Dhoom 2, you've got Esha Deol and Bipasha Basu who're seen clad in a bikini. The recent was Kareena Kapoor in Tashan. So there is nothing that stops me from doing the same.

Especially when you've got a vehicle that is going to present it well. When you have Sanjay Gadhvi coming to you and saying that I'm going to make you wear a bikini - you're not going to say no to it.

What if some other director comes to you and asks you to wear a bikini in his or her film?
You know what; the whole novelty of doing it is wearing it once. What's the point of wearing a bikini in my next film release after Kidnap?

We will come back to the bikini issue but tell us how did Sanjay Gadhvi manage to kidnap you for the film?
It was very simple actually. I was called for a general meeting at Shree Ashtavinayak's office, who are the producers of this film. I was then introduced to Sanjay Gadhvi. I didn't know that he was signed by the producers.

I had no idea about a film called Kidnap. I had no idea that the casting for such a film was happening there. Sanjay started talking and eventually it turned out to be a work meeting. We spoke about the film and he told me straight on that this is what I'm looking at doing.

You'll have to loose weight, you'll have to wear a bikini and you'll be dressed in ultra glam clothes. Are you up for it? That's what I like about his honesty. He put his cards on the table and said that this is it. I don't want trouble later on. I don't want you saying that this wasn't told to me. So if you're OK with it, we'll proceed.

I had just seen Dhoom 2 then and didn't we just love Aishwarya in it? Couldn't we not take our eyes off Hrithik Roshan? So how could I say 'No' to Sanjay Gadhvi? I was ready...ready for the change.

Did you ever try wearing a bikini at home and look yourself in the mirror and say - Wow?
Well, I do wear a bikini when I go swimming to the beach but not otherwise. I laze around in the sun and make sure I come back burnt to a crisp.

It's fun but for screen it's a whole new ball game. I did go back home and saw myself in the bikini. I was like - Oh my God! I need to do a lot of work. It was hard. Wearing a bikini is not easy. It is actually a very tension filled deadline because everyone is going to be looking at you.

Your mind is ready for it and your body is talking a completely different tune together. So you need to whip your body into shape and tell that this is what you are going to do.

What different has Sanjay got out of you besides a great sexy body in a bikini in Kidnap?
That's exactly what I thought. The idea of wearing a two-piece is great but I'm getting kidnapped and a kidnapper is going to put me in a dark corner. Then what's different about my role?

Then he gave me the script to read and it's not as if I was getting kidnapped and put in a corner and she periodically comes out and creates a tantrum. It's not that at all. She is a very integral part of the story.

She and the kidnapper form a very weird bond, which is different. So, Sonia isn't just a fancy prop in the film. She is someone who is giving a hard time to Imran because on the one side, he has the father and on the other side, he has this rich spoilt brat to take care of.

Kidnap at one point of time was going to be shelved after Sanjay Dutt's imprisonment. What was going through your mind?
We all were extremely worried. Ultimately, this is a film. At the end of the day we were worried that we knew Sanju baba was a part of the film before he got arrested. So you do think about the film being shelved or not.

Then you pause and think. Wait...this is a human being we are talking about. Projects take off and sometimes don't. It's a part of life and even the biggest of actors have got their films shelved for whatever reason.

But this was a human being we are talking of right here and that was more important. Suddenly Sanju baba's trials, which we all used to read about in the papers, became humanised to us because we were a part of it.

The tragedy hit us and we started to think that this can't be happening to us. Please don't do this to him. Sanju baba has seen enough. Kidnap, the film, was secondary for us at that time. Sanjay Gadhvi was very categorical that he had written this film only for Sanjay Dutt.

He said, 'I have waited for four years for his dates, which means that tomorrow whatever happens, there will be only Sanjay Dutt playing the role of Vikrant Raina and nobody else'.

I love to see you in pain Minissha. Don't get me wrong. I'm talking about that one second scene in the trailer where Imran grabs your neck. Was it painful?
It was a beautifully shot scene, I should say. Imran would be very scared and he would gently hold my neck. I said to Imran that I have to resist you.

So if I'm going to resist Imran, he will have to hold on to my neck and grab it as if he was going to break it. He was like - Are you sure? I said, 'Imran, just go for it'. If you're going to grab my neck thinking that you're not going to hurt me, I'm just going to break free and the scene would look weird.

Imran is such a non-violent person that for him to do this role was really tough because he had to beat up a woman, he had to be cruel, he had to be physically violent, etc. I had to beg him that it was OK if he hurt me.

If he grabs my neck and it hurts, I'd love it. After the scene, he apologised to me too.

Is it the right time then to tell all the leading ladies of Bollywood, 'Bachna Ae Haseeno'?
October 2 shall tell them.

He is playing a cursed fella who turns a blood sucking vampire all thanks to some curse given to him by a jilted lover. The curse is given to ensure that he never gets intimate with the gal he loves.

Because curse given to his character is such that if he gets intimate with any girl then he would end up killing her by sucking her neck blood."

Priyanka Chopra - Darr Ke Aage Jeet Hai

By now its common knowledge that the gorgeous Priyanka Chopra plays Abhishek Bachchan's bodyguard in the fantasy adventure Drona. Priyanka would be seen doing some deadly action sequences in this flick which opens across cinema halls on Oct 2.

While Priyanka didn't have any real problems doing the stunts all by herself, she got a little nervous when she came to know that she would have to ride a horse for one of the sequences in the film.

Strangely, no one on the sets of Drona knew that Priyanka is scared of riding a horse. Hence, the nervous look on her face on the day of the actual shoot came as a shock to all the crew members present.

Explaining this amusing incident, director Goldie Behl recalls, "Since the day we started shooting for Drona, Priyanka was very confident about all her action and fighting scenes.

She was very confident until we started shooting for this scene where she was supposed to ride a horse. She suddenly got very edgy with the idea of riding a horse; that was when we realized that Priyanka was actually scared of horses.

The horse sequence was very prominent for the scene, hence we couldn't think of not having it. After a creative discussion, Priyanka finally agreed and actually shot for the entire sequence.

Once the camera rolled, no one could make out that she was scared and I must say she shot like a pro."

Looks like after this incident Priyanka has surely emerged a much stronger and braver girl.

After Munna Bhai Sanjay Dutt comes as Sattarbhai

Sanjay Dutt plays his first real-life character named Sattarbhai in EMI. The character of the reluctant bully who has the thankless job of collecting loan money from bank debtors is based on a real-life EMI (easy monthly installments) collector.

Co-producer Ekta Kapoor confirms Dutt's real life antecedents. "Sanju Sir's character is modeled on a real-life agent.

In fact, the whole film's plot about all these debt collectors who have the thankless jobs of getting bank loans back from debtors was inspired by the real-life Sattarbhai." The real-life character's identity is being kept a secret for a very definite purpose.

Says Sunil Shetty, "We don't want the real Sattarbhai to come into the picture until Sanju Baba's fictional avatar is properly unveiled to the public."

Also, there's the question of copyrights. Would the real Sattarbhai suddenly stand up and claim money for his character being cannibalized? This isn't the first time this question has cropped up.

Recently when Preity Zinta played a real-life battered wife in Heaven On Earth, the woman who inspired the character suddenly came forward to demand what sounded like ransom money.

"She demanded an obscenely astronomical sum of money that really put Deepa Mehta off, " says a member of the Heaven On Earth team.

However, producers Ekta Kapoor and Sunil Shetty and Sanjay Dutt who plays Sattarbhai seem pretty sure the real character won't suddenly demand his pound of flesh. "He's more than happy to be a role model for a character that Sanju Baba is playing. We'll include him in the promotional events of EMI very soon, " says Sunil.

Sanjay Dutt met, interacted with and studied the real-life Sattarbhai very closely before playing the character. "This is my most seriously funny and socially-relevant character since Munnabhai.

And I'm happy to be doing something that doesn't require me to go into the underworld, " says Dutt.

As for the real Sattarbhai, he is free to share the thrill of the film…unless he suddenly decides to become a party-pooper desirous of a bigger share in the film's investments than he deserves.

Another copyright puzzle for EMI... The title is also the acronym for the world's oldest music label. "But we've registered our title. And EMI is accepted bank jargon, short for Easy Monthly Installments. If EMI is a music company then we're glad to be keeping such musical company, " jokes Sunil.

Aishwarya Rai is back in Vogue

After Bipasha Basu, Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Podukone and Preity Zinta, beauty queen-turned-Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan joins the host of celebrities to appear on the cover of the fashion and lifestyle magazine Vogue India.

Sporting an au naturale look without any accessories in a new slim avatar, Aishwarya was photographed by ace lens man Farrokh Chothia for the October issue of the magazine, dubbed as the Glamour issue.

The shoot was done in London, the last leg of the Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan's “Unforgettable” world tour that concluded recently.

“Doing the Vogue cover was a promise I made to Anaita (Shroff Adajania) right from the time she joined the Vogue. Anaita was having a baby and she wanted me to do it before she delivers, ” Aishwarya told the NDTV news channel from London.

She added: “I was to do this shoot last month but I fell ill before I left for the world tour. So, we crossed notes and managed to do it on time in London just after we finished almost the last show of the tour.”

Anaita Shroff Adajania is the fashion director for Vogue India and costume stylist for films like “Kal Ho Na Ho”, “Being Cyrus”, “Dhoom 2” and upcoming films like “Drona”, “Biloo Barber” and Imtiaz Ali's untitled project with Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone.

The actress' make-up was done by Denise Rabor with hairstylist Josh Wood who couldn't stop praising her beauty.

Incidentally, Aishwarya is presently in Peru, shooting for her Tamil film “Enthiren”, with southern superstar Rajnikanth.

Brand Golmaal only belongs to Vishal-Shekhar

"I happened to be associated with Golmaal Returns by chance. However, brand Golmaal will always belong to Vishal and Shekhar. They are the ones who got the initial set up in place and I am only taking it forward.

The title song created by them was fantabulous and I enjoyed rest of the soundtrack too. I believe I have been able to come up with a right follow up score in Golmaal Returns which doesn't let the original down, " says Pritam who has composed the music of this Rohit Shetty directed film.

The film also sees history being created in the world of contemporary Bollywood soundtrack. Never before in a mainstream commercial movie has a composer used a part of a fellow composer's tune from a different film and interspersed it in his own composition.

However, Pritam has just done this in the song 'Vacancy' for Golmaal Returns that liberally picks up the punch spots from Vishal-Shekhar composed title song of Golmaal.

Not just that, Vishal, Shekhar and singer Anushka Manchanda have been duly credited for this as well.

"Music of Golmaal Returns would just not have been 100% complete if the theme of Golmaal wasn't incorporated in it. You can't have a sequel with the USP of the original missing.

I spoke to Vishal and Shekhar and asked them if I could use their Golmaal for 'Vacancy'. They both were sweet enough to readily agree and the result is 'Vacancy', " informs Pritam who is now aiming at his fifth big success in a row in 2009 afterRace, Jannat, Kismat Konnection and Singh Is Kinng.

Vishal Dadlani (of Vishal-Shekhar duo) is glad that the song 'Vacancy' sees the revival of Golmaal, "Yes, I have been told that something like has happened for the first time.

Even we did something similar for our title track of 'Bachna Ae Haseeno' but that was for a composition by R.D. Burman which was created decades back. However, Golmaal is still fresh in the memory of music lovers."

Confirming the development around the merger of two songs, Vishal adds, "When Pritam approached us for that, there was no reason to say no. He is a friend and a great guy. It was super gracious on his part to come to us and seek permission. In fact, even before saying yes to Golmaal Returns as a project, he spoke to us as he believed that brand Golmaal belonged to us."

On a concluding note, Vishal says, "Ok, so we couldn't do Golmaal Returns for certain reasons but we are happy to see the sequel carrying the spirit of the original. It couldn't have been in better hands."

The music of Golmaal Returns releases today all over and boasts of four original songs with five remixes. In addition, bonus comes in the form of Vishal-Shekhar's songs from the original Golmaal, hence making it a complete package deal.

Aishwarya hurries to be with nervous Abhishek

Aishwarya Rai is currently wrapping her Robot film shoot in hurry to arrive back in India, just to be with her hubby, Abhishek Bachchan on October 1st for his film, Drona's premiere in Mumbai.

Confirming us the news, Aish's secretary Hari Singh said, "Aishwarya was in Peru till last week for a song shoot of Shankar's Endhiran (formerly called Robot) starring South super star Rajnikant.

Now presently she is shooting for the film in the rain forests of Brazil. She wants to be with Abhishek's side on his big day on October 1st. She is as excited as him to check him out in his first super hero avatar."

One can remember, Abhishek making a late entry for Aishwarya's Jodhaa Akbar premiere held on February 14th at the Imax Multiplex in Wadala, Mumbai.

Abhishek was shooting in Jaipur that time for Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's Dilli 6. He was to reach on time but a flight delay made him arrive at the venue at around 11:30 pm just when the film was about to finish.

But Aish won't be late and will attend the premiere along with Abhi. As Hari Singh has added, "Aishwarya will be reaching Mumbai a night before the premiere."

A source further added, "Before the grand premiere, a special show will be kept just for the Bachchans. Amitabh and Jaya early next week at a Mumbai preview theatre by director Goldie Behl.

Goldie is like family to the Bachchans and he wants to show them the film first before anyone else. Abhishek is a bundle of nerves and would most probably avoid being present at this special show."

Katrina Kaif se Bachna Ae Haseeno

Katrina is on a career high. Presently she is shooting in Philadelphia in the US for the Yashraj film with John Abraham and Neil Mukesh, directed by Kabir Khan.

Sources reveal that though 'Singh is King' is huge hit, instead of celebrating the success back home, she is shooting non stop for 18 hours at a stretch. Though she has been getting a deluge of complimentary call for the double hat trick in her career.

Industry folks compliment her on her dedication, hard work and professionalism. Success hasn't changed Katrina.

Industry sources also say that if Katrina would have been in Bachna Ae Haseeno, the film would have got a bigger opening, since she is considered as a lucky mascot in the trade circles. Incidentally Katrina was supposed to be in the film, but since the film would have got longer, the producer felt that it would not do justice to her.

Yashraj then signed her for the film with John and Neil Mukesh, directed by Kabir Khan, in a role which will have huge scope to perform. Infact keeping with her stature at the box office, she is touted as the highlight of the film.

With 6 hits in a row, and a promising 'Yuvraaj' later this year, Katrina is truly on a roll !!

Hari Puttar - A Comedy of Terrors Movie Review

What do you say of a film that's a first for a newly-launched production house which is a very, very bad remake of a successful Hollywood flick? Just one word. Terrible. What were the makers thinking when they went ahead with the shooting of this film? I mean just a smart title to cash in on the success of Harry Potter is not enough! There is absolutely no mind, matter, nor any sense. It's just plain boring. Y A W N!
What might be a consolation for the makers is that the new generation of kids who might not have seen the very famous HOME ALONE flick might just dig into this. But then, 'word of mouth' is a very powerful tool these days. Look at what positive reviews and 'word of mouth' publicity did to MUMBAI MERI JAAN, and A WEDNESDAY!

This is a classic case of intellectual bankruptcy.

Sorry Puttar. This is no way to make a children's film

Kareena steps into Angelina Jolie's shoes!

Kareena Kapoor has stepped into Angelina Jolie's shoes. No, no apni Kareena hasn't replaced the firangi Jolie in any Hollywood film but like Angelina who enjoys dubbing for animated characters; Kareena too completed dubbing for one recently.

A close friend of the actress revealed, ''Kareena just completed dubbing for an animation film ROADSIDE ROMEO, which is a Yashraj Film. Kareena had fun giving various sounds for her animated character in the film.''

The source adds, ''Before proceeding with the dubbing, Kareena heard the story and made sincere efforts to understand the character that she dubbed for. Kareena knew that it is her voice that will put across the emotions on screen. It was hard work but after watching the end result Kareena felt all the efforts were worth it. She even saw KUNG FU PANDA for which Angelina Jolie dubbed for. ''

It may be known that Kareena and Saif have been roped in to dub for the main characters in ROADSIDE ROMEO that marks the debut of Jugal Hansraj as a director.

Says Kareena, �It was fun dubbing for ROADSIDE ROMEO. It's the first time ever an actress has dubbed for an animation film and since it was a first of sorts, it was particularly challenging.''

Trust Kareena to always be a trendsetter.

3 IDIOTS stay in Shimla, Saif-Kareena return!

After completing her part of the shooting for the Shimla schedule of Rajkumar Hirani's 3 IDIOTS, Kareena Kapoor along with boyfriend Saif Ali Khan, bid adieu to the Himachal capital Shimla. It was a non–stop shooting spree before Bebo's departure and several important sequences were canned and almost 15 shots okayed, the most prominent one being Kareena's 'bidaai' ceremony, after her marriage to Sharman Joshi. A few outdoor shoots and indoor ones (in the Hotel Woodville Palace) were also canned. The hectic shooting schedule was because Kareena had to leave Shimla in order to go to US for the shooting of another film.

After the shooting was over, Bebo and Saif roamed around the Mall Road and the famous Ridge though they did not get out of their car. The next day (Thursday) Saif and Kareena left for Delhi, though the unit continues to remain in Shimla.

There is now news that Javed Jaffrey has also reached Shimla and has joined the unit of the Vidhu Vinod Chopra film. The whole scene has now shifted to the nearby famous tourist spot, Chail, where important sequences will be shot in and around the historical Chail Palace and its beautiful surroundings.

Why Vikrant Raina is close to Sanjay Dutt's heart!

Everyone knows how close Sanjay Dutt is to his daughter Trishala who is based out of the US. No surprise then that he found his role of a father in KIDNAP very close to his heart as he identified with his character of Vikrant Raina.

In KIDNAP, Sanjay Dutt's character is kept away from his daughter (played by Minissha Lamba) first by his wife (played by Vidya Malavade) and then by a kidnapper (played by Imran Khan).

When contacted, director Sanjay Gadhvi said, ''I think it was in 2002 or 2003 when Adi (Aditya Chopra) and my writer Shibani (Bathija) saw an episode of Farooq Sheikh's �Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai� on television. Sanju baba was the guest on that show. Shibani, my writer, was completely bowled over by baba's love for his daughter Trishala and could see the pain and angst in his eyes. She called me immediately to say that we had found our Vikrant Raina. I caught the episode later and couldn't agree more! Vikrant Raina was written for Sanjay Dutt!''

Gadhvi adds, ''During the shooting of KIDNAP, Sanjay was remind of his own daughter every time he'd look at Minissha. He'd keep asking me what he would do if his daughter ever got kidnapped in real life. In fact, the scene in KIDNAP where he is separated from his daughter is one of his favourites and the closest to him. It was so real–life for him that he actually broke down. His ties with Trishala have grown stronger over the years.''

Sanju had such a great time shooting for KIDNAP that he wants to play a father once again. He is keen to do a Hindi version of Steve Martin's comedy, FATHER OF THE BRIDE.

KIDNAP is an Indian Films – Studio 18 worldwide release, which is set to hit the screens on Wednesday 1st October, 2008.

Will FASHION be Madhur's first big success?

National award winner Madhur Bhandarkar may have impressed the critics as well as the jury with his hard–hitting films like CHANDNI BAR, PAGE 3 and TRAFFIC SIGNAL but there is no denying the fact that he has yet to taste big commercial success that will put him in the league of the Priyadarshans and the Anees Bazmees of Bollywood. His first big budgeted venture, AAN –MEN AT WORK with top actors like Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty, Shatrughan Sinha failed to make any impact at the ticket window. Even CORPORATE which starred frontline actress, Bipasha Basu tanked and his last film, TRAFFIC SIGNAL may have won him a National Award but it too sank without a trace.

This time around Bhandarkar is the joint producer (along with UTV Motion Pictures) and is pumping in a lot of money on his high budgeted (18–20 crore) Priyanka Chopra starrer, FASHION. So, should we expect a reversal in fortune for Madhur?

Well, as per a reputed trade expert, going by the excellent response to the promos as well as its music album, it seems like Madhur is on track to taste his first big commercial success.

In fact, from the trailor, the film looks like it is packed with all the masala, including emotions. Since no one has made a film on the fashion industry before this, it should also have the novelty factor going in its favour.

Who deserves maximum compliments - Abhishek or Imran?

Come 2nd October and Bollywood would witness yet another interesting clash between the two biggies Abhishek–Priyanka starrer DRONA and Sanjay–Imran starrer KIDNAP. A lot has been written and talked about both these films. Apart from the fact that both are set to hit the screens on same day, the one thing which is being widely raved about is the new look of either of the actors – Abishek Bachchan and Imran Khan.

A lot of time and money was spent behind the styling of each of these actors.

While Abhishek sports an unconventional organic look for his superhero act in DRONA than the cute kidnapper Imran dons a complete funky and trendy attire.

Abhishek's look in DRONA is inspired by the traditional Indian bridegroom and medieval warriors, contrary to what most western superheroes wear. Imran's styling has been given a western touch keeping current fashion in mind.

If Abhishek's vintage look with an earthy appeal absorbs one's attention than Imran's dashing new avatar with a tattoo on his neck, a muscular body with stubbled face sporting a Mohawk haircut is definitely mesmerizing.

Both the female charmers are looking absolutely stunning and hot.

Well drawing comparisons between the two is unfair, but still we would like to hear from you gals what you feel, who deserves the maximum compliments.

Aishwarya Rai Shoots A Song With Rajnikanth For Robot

The moment one mention of the word Robot, the first thing that comes to mind is that of gadgets and gizmos. But the South India based ace director Shankar has vowed to change it all, for he is making a film with the same name and stars none other than…hold your breath… South superstar Rajnikanth and Bollywood top actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan! Ok! you can breathe now.

Now it can be told. The star price war was has escalated to an all time high. With Aishwarya Rai carrying home a pay packet of Rs 4 Crores for her proposed stint as Rajnikanth’s leading lady in Robot, the lady has now become the highest paid actress of Indian cinema.

As for her astronomical fee for Robot a source close to the project says, “It is no surprise that Asihwarya is getting 4 crores. It is still chicken feed compared with what Rajnikanth gets paid. He takes home Rs 15 crores plus fifty percent of his movie’s profits. But still he can not make a movie commercially viable outside the Tamilian belt on his own. With Aishwarya in Robot it looks like an attractive non regional movie”.

For those who wake up to Bollywood know about the controversy dodging this flick. But for the innocent and ignorant ones, here it goes. The movie was initially to star Shahrukh nonetheless. But due to “creative differences” (unmentionable differences), he opted out of the movie. Not just that, Shahrukh reportedly also registered all the names that sounds even remotely like “Robots“. The news is that now Shankar has renamed the movie as Enthiram.

Exit Shahrukh and in comes Shivaji Rao Gaekwad better known as Rajnikanth, the man with a tag line of “There is nothing that Rajini-CANT“! Shankar, on his part is leaving no stone unturned as far as the shooting of the movie is concerned. Recently, he shot for a song with the stunning of Rajini-Ash at the UNESCO declared world famous heritage site Machu Pichhu. With this, Shankar takes the man responsible for shooting the first Indian movie here! Whoever said that ostriches are not desirable will surely eat their words out, after they have a look at Aishwarya who looks simply awesome with those ostrich feathers in the adjoining photo!

Not just that, news also has it that Shankar will be shooting for his movie in the most desirable dream locations like South America, Peru etc… One wonders will Shahrukh’s loss be Rajni’s gain? Well, is that a question to be asked. What do you say guys!
