Mallika Sherawat And Hollywood Star Sharon Ston Working Togather

Mallika Sherawat, who has made US her home with her living there and working in Hollywood films, has been seen rubbing her shoulders with the Who's Who of Beverly Hills. However, the person she has recently bonded heavily with is definitely little more special as she is none other than the Basic Instinct star, Sharon Stone. The two were spotted attending a charity event and rooting for the international children's rights organisation Operation Smile that provides life-changing surgery solutions to children globally.

An eyewitness reveals that the two bonded like a house on fire from the moment they got introduced. "Sharon had heard about Mallika and from the time they arrived at the function, the two were inseparable. They sat together and right till the moment the event started, kept chatting about the work they are doing respectively for films and philanthropy. Post the event too they bonded again," says the source.

But what's also interesting about this development is that sources reveal that Sharon, who is also a film producer, might have discussed the proposition of casting Mallika in one of her films. Gossip is that the film might also have Sharon playing a meaty role.

"They were definitely talking about being friends from then on and planning how they should catch up soon. Sharon is always looking for new scripts to cast talents from across the world. Looks like Mallika has managed to charm Sharon as they have definitely had a talk on working together. The hottest girl in the West pairing up with the oomphy actress from the East will be a good combination to see," says the informer.

Rajinikanth done popping with Aishwarya Rai

Age is just a number! When it comes to dedication towards work, Rajnikanth who is sixty can even try to learn a new dance form. For Endhiran, the superstar did the funk style dance called ‘popping’ with Aishwarya Rai.

Aishwarya Rai Dance With Rajinikanth Her New Movie

What is popping? It is a kind of street dance which is based on the technique of quickly contracting and relaxing muscles to cause a jerk in the dancer’s body. Sounds tough, doesn’t it! But Ash and Rajini were game for it. Yes, apart from Rajini, choreographer Remo D'Souza taught the dance to Ash as well. Like Rajini, the actress too is trying out popping for the first time. But they were quick to grasp the steps and the end result amazed all.

“Yes, this is the first time that you would see Rajini and Ash attempt popping. The energy and finesse that they bring on to this dance sequence is something to eagerly look forward to. It was a delight choreographing this song,” Remo is quoted as saying. As Remo enjoyed working on the song, we hope the audience too would love to see it on silver screen.

Katrina Kaif Twist Over Romantic

Generally guys are averse to Rakhi as they fear of girls tying Rakhis to their wrists. Likewise no guy likes the charming diva of Bollywood, Katrina Kaif to tie Rakhi to his wrist. Yet Katrina found a God-brother of her own and tied the Raksha Bandhan. He is none other than producer Sajid Nadiadwala. He is well known as the friend of Salman Khan. This emotional episode occured during the shooting of the film 'Tees Maar Khan' directed by Farah Khan. Even Farah followed Katrina and tied Rakhi to Sajid who found no chance to escape.

Deepika Padukone Ex BoyFriend Nihar Pandya In A Film

Deepika Padukone Ex BoyFriend Nihar Pandya In A FilmHimesh Reshammiya's estranged friend, Prashant Chadha, is directing Rome The Real Dope On Romeo starring Deepika Padukone's ex-boyfriend, Nihar Pandya. The interesting bit about the flick is that certain scenes have been inspired from Nihar's real-life break-up.

Says a source connected to the film, "The hero's first scene starts with a monologue in front of the mirror where he talks about worshipping his girlfriend for four years and then, being dumped unceremoniously in favour of a more successful man. He then starts his search for a famous lover, Romeo."

Prashant says, "The film is about the journey of a rich young man who gets dumped by his girlfriend. He then starts his journey from Rome through Italy in search of Romeo who is a successful lover, while he couldn't be. I will be casting a known actress from B-Town and a foreign actress."

Prashant admits that Rome has been inspired from Nihar's real life. "Nihar's first scene depicts his state after he is jilted. Though people have tagged Nihar as a Casanova, it's not true.

Rome will show the truth of what happened. My ideal cast for Nihar's character's ex-girlfriend in Rome would be Deepika herself, though I am yet to approach her. Nihar knows what the story and screenplay are and he's comfortable playing a large portion of his real life on screen."Prashant is also directing an untitled film with Sachin Joshi and Candice Boucher.

Vidya Balan Working With Pradeep Sarkar

Vidya Balan Working With Pradeep SarkarFive years after Parineeta, Vidya Balan and her mentor, Pradeep Sarkar, recently got back together to shoot a hair oil ad. The actress admits she was really nervous and insisted on a rehearsal before the first take. “It’s been a long time since I worked with Dada and I was wondering if the connect we had shared was still as strong, if I could understand what he wanted as easily as before, without words being spoken,” she points out.

To her relief, nothing had changed. “It was like cycling, a skill you don’t forget once you’ve learnt it,” she laughs. “And with Natti (cinematographer N Nataraja Subramaniam) behind the camera, it was almost like we were back to the Parineeta days.”The modern-day Lolita would love to do a film with Dada next. Sarkar himself is keen. Says Sarkar, “Vidya has grown as an actress since her debut in 2005. She was ‘bindaas’ (uninhibited) in Ishqiya and awesome in Paa. In fact, Paa should have been called Maa. Whatever she does, Vidya does with pure intensity and is a true Indian beauty. You can’t take the Indianess out of her.”

Script not ready
It is learnt that he wants to make a costume drama with her. Balan doesn’t think he’s ready with a script yet, but would like to do a film revolving around relationships with him. “May be a love story, but I couldn’t say if it would be another period film or a historical,” she says.

Has she seen Sarkar’s recently released Lafangey Parindey? “Dada didn’t want me to see it till he asked me to. I wasn’t called for the screening, I’m still waiting,” she smiles.

As she waits for Sarkar’s call, Balan has signed a thriller to be shot in Kolkata by another Bengali, Sujoy Ghosh. “It’s an exciting script and we’ll be filming in Kolkata for a month-and-a-half during Durga puja. I’m told the city dons new clothes to welcome Maa and I can’t wait to see it. May be I could go ‘pandal’ hopping and visit Kalighat. That’s a must, even during the crazy festive season,” she insists.

Casting for the film is still on. It would have some Bengali actors with Balan probably as the only big Bollywood name. The star draw, huh? “I’d prefer the script rather than the star to be the crowd-puller,” she retorts.

Salman Khan Up Comming & Mega Budget Movie DABANGG

Heard this?? Salman Khan’s upcoming mega-budget flick ‘Dabangg’ is so hot in the circuit that the owners of some single screen theatres have been refusing even Karan Johar’s upcoming ‘We Are Family’, starring Kajol- Kareena, a two week run at their theatres.

Salman Khan Up Comming & Mega Budget Movie DABANGG

As Salman Khan-Sonakshi Sinha starrer ‘Dabangg’ is set for an Eid release on September 10, the theatre owners’ two week commitment to Karan Johar would affect Salman’s film, as ‘We are Family’ is releasing on September 3.

For instance, Manoj Desai of Maratha Mandir says, ‘I can not take ‘We are family’ for just two shows. If Karan is confident about the film, he should not be asking for the commitment of two weeks. He should let the film speak for itself and let the single screen owners then decide.’

Some theatres like Premiere in Dadar are not prepared to release Karan Johar’s flick ‘We Are Family’ at all as they feel that it would affect the chances of making money with ‘Dabangg’, which is very hot among the audiences.

Even Chandan cinema in Juhu is yet to sign a deal with Karan Johar’s ‘We are Family’, while the deal with Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg’ has already been signed and sealed. However, UTV officials refuse the argument and say that they had already locked some theatres and even listing was out in newspapers etc.

It may be recalled that earlier Karan Johar’s ‘We Are Family’ starring Kareena Kapoor, Kajol and Arjun Rampal was set to release on Eid, September 10. But due to Salman Khan’s starrer ‘Dabangg’ coming on that date, it had been advanced by one week to September. However, even then two week commitment is creating problems for K Jo’s flick.

The buzz doing the rounds in the industry is that Salman Khan’s films have always been hot due to star appeal and only Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir or Akshay Kumar could have given him competition at the box office. But K Jo’s film does not have any major male stars and female stars were never able to carry the film on their shoulders at the box office.

Even otherwise, Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg’ looks entertaining and hot from the outset, while Kareena Kapoor-Kajol starrer ‘We Are Family’ seems to be mainly aimed at multiplex going family audiences.

Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg’ has already become very hot through macho Khan’s name ‘Chulbul Pandey’ and his unusual dance steps in the promos. The presence of Sonakshi Sinha, the svelte, suave, sexy cute thing is only adding to the value of the film.

Finally, Malaika Arora Khan‘s hot number ‘Munni Badnam hui’ is also creating ripples among fans and movie lovers. By the going trend and craze, Salman Khan’s ‘Dabangg’ is set for a huge initial response at the box office during Eid.

Kangna Ranaut: Have An Affair

Kangna Ranaut: Have An AffairBollywood stars are often the targeted by the stalkers and this time the target was Once Upon A Time girl Kangna Ranaut. She became the target in Leena Mogre’s gym, which is her regular work out place. The story goes back to six months ago when a guy named Akash started writing obsessive love letters to Kangna. Akash Bhardwaj was one of the clients of Leena Mogre. Elaborating on this, a friend of Kangna was quoted saying that most of the letters were couriered to her. She said that the contents of the letter clearly indicated that he loved Kangna madly but the contents took a shocking turn in last few letters.

The friend of Kangna also said that the last few letters indicated that Akash was a psychopath as he had presumed that he was already having a relationship with her. She quoted some words of the letter, which read, ‘Kangna, mera haq hai tum par, you are made for me’.

The real face of the stalker came out after a few days. Kangna inquired about Akash to one of the trainers at the gym on Monday, who said that Akash was present there at that moment. The trainer then asked Akash why he was harassing Kangna. On this Akash said that it is his private matter with Kangna and the trainer should not get involved in this. Hearing this, Kangna was shocked and she started arguing with Akash. But he started speaking all rubbish, making Leena Mogre irritated enough to call up the cops.

In fact, he was not giving up till the last moment. Akash was then arrested by the police and put behind the bars. Confirming the news, Leena Mogre said that they have taken legal action against Akash and he is under police security now. She added that the guy always wanted her to introduce him with film directors but she does not want any more trouble in her gym. However, Kangna must be feeling relieved now after all these ugly sequences!

Vidya Balan In Up Comming Movie Milte Hain

Vidya Balan In Up Comming Movie Milte HainFilmmaker Sanjay Gupta is pretty pleased with himself. Not only has he got Vidya Balan on board for his film titled Milte Hain, he has also signed Vishal Bhardwaj to compose the music for it. “Vishal agreed to do the film immediately after reading the script. It’s been a while since Vishal composed music for an outside project, the last being U Me Aur Hum and Haal-E Dil. So it is like a coup for me,” said Gupta, adding that Gulzar is writing the lyrics.

The film, which will be directed by Meghna Gulzar, is an adaptation of Barry Creiton’s play Double Act. It is about a couple that meets 15 months after getting divorced and the drama that follows. “It is a highly successful Australian play that has staged shows all over the US and the UK for the last five years. In fact, there has also been an Indian version, Anything But Love, in which Samir Soni and Mandira Bedi play the lead roles. It is Samir who took me to see the play, and that’s when I saw the potential to adapt it for the big screen. I have already purchased the rights,” Gupta disclosed. The film will take off early next year and will be shot in England. After this film wraps up, Gupta will start work on the remake of the Spanish hit Ladron Que Roba Ladron which is presently in the scripting stage.

Neha Dhupia Celebrate Her 30th Birthday

Neha Dhupia Celetrate Her 30th Birthday

This scene in her debut movie, 'Qayamat', instantly propelled her to sex symbol status. What followed was an array of films that only required her to strut her sex appeal on-screen. With movies such as 'Mithya' and 'Ek Chalis Ki Last Local', Neha proved that she was an actress of substance. Today, her acting resume features a good mix of commercial cinema and made-for-multiplex movies.

Vidya Balan Refused In Malayalam Movie

Vidya Balan Refused In Malayalam MovieVidya Balan's plans of performing a complex Mohiniyattam dance for Santosh Sivan's Malayalam film Urumi have been postponed due to her shoulder condition. The actress says she can't dance until she is fully recovered otherwise she may have a life-long shoulder problem. "This has happened all because of my own stubbornness," said Vidya whose gym trainer had warned her against rigorous exercises.

"But I didn't listen to him. Now I can't dance until I am fully recovered. I still haven't forgotten the impact of my classical number in Bhool Bhulaiyaa. The one in Santosh's film would be far more sensuous and intricate."Vidya has a chronic shoulder condition which got aggravated after she insisted on going to the gym before it had healed completely. She has now had a relapse, leading to this excruciating pain.

"Now I've to wait out, I've no option. Otherwise I'll have a life-long shoulder problem. I can't wait to start rehearsing for Santosh Sivan's dance number.

Though Vidya is a trained classical dancer, a Mohiniyattam guru has been specially hired by Sivan to teach her nuances of the dance form before she performs it for filming. Vidya's training was to start this week. Her spirit and her feet are willing -- but the body is too weak to take the vigorous dancing. "I was in so much pain I couldn't do any of the normal things, let alone dance," she said.

Speaking on the much talked-about item song, she said: "It's more talked-about than actually performed. I was supposed to start preparing for it this week.

Unfortunately I've been down with a painful shoulder condition for some time. And completely forbidden from doing anything strenuous."Vidya describes it as a fusion dance. "Since I was born in Kerala my family is so looking forward to my foray into Malayalam films. I thought a song is a very good place to start. Moreover, I totally admire Santosh Sivan's work... who doesn't?"

Kareena Kapoor: Three Different Style Pics

When a leading actress and her competitor sniped at Kareena Kapoor by calling her an actress with too many expressions on a television show a few years back, she was perhaps right. Kareena indeed lets on a variety of interesting expressions that change in a matter of seconds.

Kareena Kapoor: Three Different Style Pics

We caught the actress promoting her coming film We Are Family with co-star Arjun Rampal at different events recently. What stood out were the mood shifts of the actress as she interacted with the media and even showed her dance moves. No wonder, she’s one of the best in tinsel town.

Katrina Kaif: Hot And Cry Babe

Katrina Kaif: Hot And Cry BabeKatrina Kaif, the hot gal in B town, is surely known as the cool kat, not only for her chique looks, but also for her very controlled emotions and calculated public utterances. But, it seems that emotional turmoil’s have the capability of squashing even the most die hard celebrities into a bundle of nerves! At least that’s what happened to our cool Kat recently, at a press conference. Reportedly, Kat was repeatedly asked by many media reps about her relationship status with the macho hunk Salman.

When Kat, the normally smiling gal, refused to say much, one of them asked her about her side of the story as Salman Khan had announced publicly that he had broken off with Katrina Kaif! Katrina Kaif, who was a little shaken, said that since Salman had said that they had broken off, even she was single right now. After which, she went to her room and sobbed away to no ones business!

As news about a very upset Kat got around, a friend and close associate of hers clarified that Katrina was just upset that Salman had not kept his word about their break-up being kept a secret. The buzz is that Katrina and Salman had parted like friends, and Kat had made Salman promise that this would be kept a secret.

However, Salman had not kept his word; he simply had broken Katrina’s heart! This was too much for the soft hearted Katrina to handle, and she broke down, her tears just wouldn’t stop flowing down! Now, who would’ve thought that Katrina Kaif would turn from a hot babe to a cry Baby so soon? Well, atleast we now know that Kat is real and has true emotions too!

Incidentally, even Sonam Kapoor was said to be under consideration for a similar project with Ben Stiller. But she hasn’t signed on the dotted line yet. Now, it remains to be seen if Ash will wrest the part from her. If you recall, Ash was also in talks with Michael Douglas for a Hollywood project to be shot in India. However, owing to Douglas’s dwindling health and his diagnosis of throat cancer, that project looks as good as shelved.

Katrina Kaif Start On Barbie Doll All Over The World

Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif has enough international appeal to charm the viewers and now the ‘Desi Barbie’ inspired by the actress will just be an added factor to it as the doll is now ready to get a worldwide launch. Till now, the Katrina Kaif doll was enclosed at a Barbie museum in the US. Now, the makers have decided to market the doll all over the world from this December.

These dolls would be given the exact look of the actress and will be offered in a box carrying her description.

However, the dolls will not now have a worldwide launch by this year-end.

The source informed that the selection of clothes and accessories for the doll is being done by Katrina personally.

Deepika Padukone To Erased Ranbir Kapoor Tattoo

Deepika Padukone To Erased Ranbir Kapoor TattooDeepika is about to delete the beautifully inked tattoo on her neck as she wants to get rid of every reminiscent of her love relationship with Ranbir Kapoor. Earlier she used to walk with proud at every event wearing his name embedded on her neck even after their split. But now when she is dating Sidhartha Mallaya, she wants to be loyal in her relationship. So it has got hard for her now to move with any trace of dead relationship. Moreover, Sidhartha does not like Deepika wearing the same tattoo.

Deepika was asked several times about this tattoo in various interviews during promotional events of “Lafangey Parindey” but she avoids such questions. In one such interview when she was asked about her love for Ranbir embossed in the form of tattoo on her neck then she very smartly said that he can just appreciate the tattoo inked on her skin but could ask its whereabouts.

Deepika even shot for “Lafangey Parindey”, “Khele Hum Jee Jaan se” and walked the ramp at IIJW with same tattoo. She never showed her eagerness to remove it. But now when the discussion on her tattoo has been given enormous hype she has decided to wash it away from her skin. It is said that she is going to take laser treatment for removing the tattoo. Deepika is one such actress who never went for any kind of surgery to shape up her face unlike other actresses. That is why she turned down the idea of undergoing plastic surgery for this. But ultimately she wants to clear her skin.

Deepika is really fond of inking tattoos on her skin. She got this much talked RK tattoo embossed on her skin when her love was in air and its peak. She admits that she was committed and devoted to her relationship but straying habits of Ranbir brings their relationship to a bitter end. She feels good that her inner self has saved herself from being broken. And now she is delighted to be in happy space with her new love interest Sidhartha Mallya. So she thought it best to remove the sign of her last love affair to put a full stop on every gossip cropping up every now and then.

Kareena Kapoor: No More Weight Flaking

Kareena Kapoor No More Weight FlakingKareena Kapoor laughed out reports claiming her filmmaker friend Karan Johar has asked her to shed weight for his movie, saying she is happy with the little that she has gained recently. "I read the report on the flight today (Tuesday). It is completely false. I am not going to lose any weight. I have gained a little recently and I am very happy with it," Kareena told reporters here at a press conference of her film We Are Family.

"I am amazed Karan has told the whole world about it but has not discussed anything with me," she said sarcastically. Releasing Sep 3, the film stars Kajol, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal. The actress, who claims the film is her 40th project, says the film has helped her in strengthening her bond with co-star Kajol.

"I have always admired Kajol as an actress. We have worked together earlier in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham but we had very few scenes together. "But in this film, we got a chance to share a lot of time and you will find us together in almost every frame. We have become very close friends now," Kareena said.

Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek And Amitabh Bachchan PhotoShoot In Mumbai

Aishwarya Rai rested the eye at the second showing of Vipul and Shefali Shah's play 'Bus Itna Sa Khwab' on August 22 late night at Rangsharda theatre, Bandra in Mumbai. She accompanied husband Abhishek Bachchan and pa-in-law Amitabh Bachchan to the event, dressed in a white button front loose fit shirt with folded sleeves and black slim pants. She kept cozy carrying a black and gray scarf.

Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek And Amitabh Bachchan PhotoShoot In Mumbai

She wore white peeptoe pumps with a black bow top and carried a black clutch. Her hot pink nails were a rare sighting on her. Abhishek looked cute in a white shirt with a pink floral print detail on the front, light blue jeans, brown pointy leather shoes and a brown striped scarf to keep him warm. Amitabh Bachchan was his stately self in a blue pin stripe suit and white dress shirt.

The trio sat in the front row, next to Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna. The Bachchans joined the rest of the audience for a standing ovation to a brilliant performance by Shefali Shah and the rest of the cast. After getting such a grand reception to her performance, an emotional Shefali got a special hug from Big B. "Incredible play 'bas itna saa khwab' and Shefali Shah, Vipul's wife, my wife in film 'Waqt', is just unbelievable..choked with emotion!" Amitabh tweeted after the show.

Talking about her role in the play, a socio-psychological thriller about the purpose of life and how reality is replaced by illusions, Shefali said, "I am playing Shalini's character which has got so many layers to it. She's the most relatable woman and yet she can surprise you. My challenge is to portray her in a way that everyone can identify with her."

Kangna Ranaut In Golden Dress: Sexy

Fashion comes naturally to Kangna Ranaut. In fact, the 23-year old looks like a seasoned fashionista whenever she steps out. Chalk it up to her slender figure or delicate bone structure, Ms Ranaut sure knows how to strut her stuff. This year alone, Kangna was snapped in very chic and unusual outfits at various events. And we're not talking films here.

Kangna Ranaut In Golden Dress: Sexy

Incidentally, her only film so far this year, Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai, saw her in retro garb, something which must surely have got her kicked about the role. We think it must have something to do with this 1970s inspired gold dress that she wore to the film's success party last month. Though a little too retro for our taste, this diva can still work her magic with her attitude.

Kareena And Saif Will they ever tie the knot?

Kareena And Saif Will they ever tie the knot?Aamir Khan may have lent Kareena a much-needed mega success in 3 Idiots, but Saif Ali Khan’s career graph seems to have come to a pause. Not that, he desperately needs a hit but his films, of late, have been mediocre in content and average in box office (take Kurbaan, for instance). However, much is said and written about Saifeena- the love birds.

So, will Kareena tie the knot with Saif? Firstly, Kareena is a career-oriented woman and, currently, her Bollywood wagon wheel is running at a tremendous pace. So, it’s not plausible that she walks the aisle with Saif who is ageing rapidly (with balding scalp and dwindling career).

Secondly, Saif already has proved why he isn’t a one-woman guy. His divorce from Amrita Singh came as a shocker to the industry when he hooked up with an Italian Rosa. He eventually dumped her when he bumped into Kareena on the sets of Tashan. So, it’s unlikely that he would settle down soon with Kareena.

Having said that, it must be mentioned that Saif did etch her tattoo on his arm, an act out of sheer love for his queen. Still, the age gap is huge and the day Kareena falls for a younger man will mark the end of this fairy tale romance. Katrina-Salman affair is a case in point. Nevertheless, stranger things have happened in this tinsel world……

Priyanka Chopra Chilling Role In Her Next Movie

Priyanka Chopra Chilling Role In Her Next MovieShe's hardly the dost-host in Rio de Janeiro where the stunts for Khatron Ke Khiladi (Fear Factor) are being shot.According to news filtering out of the beaches of Copacabana where the first batch of stunts were shot last week with the 13 contestants, hostess Priyanka Chopra was not kidding when she had said she would make the contestants hate her with her instructions. According to at least 2 contestants who spoke from the location, Priyanka has transformed into quite a whip-wielding dictator in the sizzling climes of Brazil. She makes the contestants work relentlessly and hardly provides them with a moment of breather to replenish their energy.

Says one of the exhausted contestants, "She carries not a whip, but a whistle which is as good as whip. The whistle is with her throughout from 7.30 am in the morning till late evening when we pack up. And she uses the whistle to intimidate us like no other woman in our lives has ever intimidated us." In fact the contestants are so fed up of the whistle that they plan to steal it and throw it in the ocean.

But Priyanka is relentless in her adherence to the regime. Says a source from Rio, "Priyanka is determined to prove she can orchestrate the contestant's stunts as effectively as Akshay Kumar in the first two seasons of Fear Factor. She is up at dawn and ready to play hard ball with the contestants by 7.30 am every morning. The stunts start by 8.30 am but not before a very close and careful briefing by the stunt director to make sure no one breaks any bones on location."

Throughout these stunts, Priyanka is as detached dispassionate and ruthlessly professional as a doctor performing an intricate surgery. She does not fraternize with any of the contestants, not even Dino Morea whom she knows well. Says the source, "The only time she loosens up is towards the evening when she seems more relaxed. Otherwise she is so professional, it's scary."Priyanka says she's doing her job exactly the way she is supposed to. "We are not here for a picnic. It's a tough regimen," she says.

Vidya Balan To Perform Mandira’s Role

Sanjay Gupta has decided not to multi-task anymore. Early 2011, the filmmaker will flag of Meghna Gulzar’s next directorial venture, Milte Hain, based on Barry Creiton’s play, Double Act. And only after it wraps up will he start filming his remake of the Spanish movie, Ladron Que Roba Ladron.

Vidya Balan To Perform Mandira’s Role

Interestingly, theater director Vikranth Pawar’s Anything But Love, featuring Mandira Bedi and Samir Soni, that played in Mumbai for a few years, is also an adaptation of the same play. “We’ve purchased the rights and finalized Vidya Balan for it. Gulzar saab is writing the lyrics and Vishal Bhardwaj is composing the music,” says Gupta, adding that they’re still in talks for the male lead.

Milte Hain will be shot in London. “The skyline of London is changing rapidly so why look for another place?” Gupta counters, admitting that since the days are shorter in winter and the natural light not suitable for shooting, they’ll wait till February for more favourable weather.By then, Gupta’s writers, Darab Farouqi and Sanam, will have finished scripting the Hindi version of the Spanish film with veteran Robin Bhatt. Buzz is that Sunny and Bobby Deol have been confirmed. “Sunny and Bobby are good friends, but I will be able to figure out the cast only after script is locked,” says Gupta. Gupta is also planning a family with his wife Anu. “That is a top priority,” he asserted, when quizzed on his three home productions for next year.

Farah Khan's Son Wants Kissing To Katrina Kaif

Farah Khan's son Czar may be all of two years old but the tot already knows what he wants. What he wants, he gets and Junior loves kissing his mom's leading lady Katrina Kaif on the lips.

Farah Khan's Son Wants Kissing To Katrina Kaif

Talking about the kid's fascination with Kat, a source says, "Farah often brings her kids (Czar, Anya and Diva) to the set of her film Tees Maar Khan. Czar is a total brat. Farah often kisses him on his lips and he annoyingly wipes it off most of the time.

However, one day on the set, he was playing with Kat and she offered her cheek to let him plant a kiss. But instead of kissing her on the cheek, he kissed her on the lips. Now, Czar usually wipes off his moms affectionate kisses but he didn't do the same after plating a wet one on Kat."

Recalling the incident, Farah adds that it didn't just happen once, but twice! "The next day at rehearsals, he actually gestured to her with his hands and called her. And again planted a kiss on her lips! Till now, only I was allowed to kiss him on the mouth, but now he's taken to Kat. We think something is going on between them!"

Where is Katrina Kaif ???

The Bollywood actress is featured in a viral video directed by Farah Khan, with the airline’s crew as back-up dancers Katrina Kaif grooving to yet another Bollywood number is hardly newsworthy.

Video Is Katrina Kaif the face of Etihad?

But it certainly grabs your attention when a viral video featuring the actress also sees Etihad Airways’ cabin crew shaking a hip with her. And it could also mean the actress will be one of the stars walking the red carpet at the upcoming Abu Dhabi Film Festival.

The 1.29-minute clip on, which has internet chatrooms and social media mongers abuzz, sees the popular actress in the Abu Dhabi-based airline’s first class or business lounge, breaking into a flash mob dance sequence.

As passengers and Etihad crew members match her step for step. When contacted by Emirates24|7 in regards to the authenticity of the YouTube-originated video, an Etihad spokesperson said: “We are not actually commenting at this stage.”

The airline also declined to confirm whether Kaif has been signed on as its latest brand ambassador or if the video is merely part of its online marketing strategy. However, sources close to Etihad have revealed that the 26-year-old actress will in fact be the latest face for the airline in a hush-hush campaign that should be revealed in its entirety five days from today.

The source also revealed that the director of choreography is none other than Bollywood’s ace film and dance director, Farah Khan, who shot the sequence in Abu Dhabi after a personal request from Kaif itself. The actress is currently shooting for Khan’s latest production, “Tees Maar Khan”.

The news was confirmed on, which quotes Khan as saying: “Yes I directed Katrina for the airlines. She’s not playing an airhostess but we will be shooting it at their airport lounge in Abu Dhabi.” Kaif apparently flew down to the capital for just one day from Spain where she was shooting for Zoya Akhtar’s “Zindagi Na Milenge Dobara”.

Asian connection While Etihad continues to be mum on Kaif’s association with the local carrier, this is not the first time the airline has signed on popular Asian artistes as brand ambassadors. Earlier this year, Etihad inked a deal with the internationally acclaimed pop-rock band from Pakistan, Strings, as its new face.

Peter Baumgartner, Etihad Airways’ Chief Commercial Officer, said at the time: “I am personally looking forward to witnessing how the Etihad brand name reaches across the world through the music of Strings. Pakistan is one of Etihad’s key markets and we are pleased to help promote and work with Strings as leading celebrities from this region.”

The airline said it was working on a series of exciting new initiatives during 2010, across the world with Strings to promote music and culture in Pakistan and around the world. It is uncertain if Strings has scored the music to Kaif’s viral video, but some fans are already speculating his capital connection could also result in the actress making an appearance at this year’s Abu Dhabi Film Festival, which runs from October 14 until 23.

Aishwarya Rai Hot On Endhiran Movie

Aishwarya Rai may, superficially, appear coy and demure but did you know that deep inside her devilish mind lay dormant a prankster bidding its time to come to the fore. Aishwarya Rai is a big fan of Rajnikant and their film.

Aishwarya Rai naughty Endhiran set

Endhiran or Robot shall hit theatres this September. And since Ash is a great admirer of Rajni Sir’s trademark cigarette tossing style, she (during one scene) deliberately kept making mistakes so that the scene be re-shot and she be able to watch his style again and again.

Aishwarya Rai Hot On Endhiran Movie

“Rajnikant’s trademark style of tossing the cigarette, is loved by Ash. She could ask him once or twice at max to enact this scene for her, but she wanted to see it repeatedly. Thus she purposely kept making mistakes while shooting her scene; Rajnikant ended up enacting his patented stunt six times.”

Aishwarya Rai Hot On Endhiran Movie

It was only after the shoot got over that Ash divulged this secret to Rajni Sir who, naturally, was all grins and laughter. Even the director of the film was left stunningly amused and cites, “We only realised while shooting that Ash was such a big fan of Rajni Sir.”All is well that ends well…..What do you folks have to think of Aishwarya’s mischievous avatar?

Vidya’s cameo

Vidya Balan as most are well aware is the front line heroine of Bollywood. Last week the news regarding her was her usual repetitive denial to act in Tamil films. However, this Kerala born actress seems to be concerned to be featured her in Mollywood films. This might sound a little strange, but it is completely real.

Vidya’s cameo

She already has announced to be a part of ‘Mathilukalkkappuram’. The flick Mathilukalkkappuram features Mammootty among others. This talented actress has also given an optimistic nod to show up in a cameo role in the new movie ‘Urumi’. The movie is about the plot to assassinate Vaso Da Gama.

The heroine of this Santhosh Sivan movie is the cute and bubbly Genelia D’Sousa, Vidya Balan has reportedly agreed to be in one song sequence, which will be pictured completely on her. The movie stars Prithviraj in the lead, role, the movie explores a few mythological characters namely Vasco Da Gama and others.

Sankar Ramakrishnan has been responsible in creating the script of the film. The flick is likely to be on floors in about two months. Vidya’s declaration to be a part of this movie might just raise eyebrows in the Mollywood industry, whom she has repeatedly ignored.

Salman Khan Broken up with Katrina KaifSalman Khan Broken up with Katrina Kaif

Salman Khan Broken up with Katrina KaifSalman khan now admitted publicly that he spitted with Katrina Kaif.

He got a little philosophical when asked about the reason of his break-up from Katrina.

He did not specify reason. Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are broken and its making buzz with the talks of their split, Salman has thrown a bombshell by admitting that he and Katrina have indeed parted ways.

“I have broken up with Katrina. We were friends then for everybody, we are friends now,” Salman said in an interview to Headlines Today. “Koi cheez tootati hain toh isliye kyonki ya toh different ways chali gayi hain, ya ek shakhs ki growth nahin hui, ya ek ne kuch aur path chun liya hai, ya sensibility samajh mein nahi aati, ya thinking galat ho gayi hain.

(A relationship breaks when it strays off in different directions, or when one of the two has stopped growing, or when the other person has chosen a different path, or when the thinking has got distorted).” “It’s just two people not getting along, something that obviously doesn’t end peacefully. But if you can manage to stay friends, there is nothing like it,” he added They are continuing to remain friends.

Genelia D’souza in the remake of Khakha KhakhaFinally it has been clarified that, Genelia will be playing the lead role for Vipul Shah's Hindi remake of Tamil super hit Khakha Khakha.

She has replaced Asin in opposite to John Abraham for this film. There has been a huge question mark over Asin's replacement. Even Sonam Kapoor or Diana Petty were expected to be in for Asin in this movie.

But finally it was Genelia who will play the lead female character of the Tamil remake. The shooting of this film will be start in this month itself.

One of Genelia's friends has clarified that Genelia had already worked with John in Hook Ya Crook but the film was cancelled after 90% of shooting due to some reason.

As the film is an action movie, Genelia is going to play a critical role. The Bollywood remake is having an important part for the female lead in this movie.

Earlier John has denied to get paired with Asin and then Vipul Shah was looking forward to take Sonam for the film.

Then model Diana Petty was taken in to consideration but finally Genelia has been signed for this role.

Belly Dance Gives Stomach Pain To Katrina Kaif

Belly Dance Gives Stomach Pain To Katrina KaifStomach this. Katrina Kaif has developed abdominal pains after a lesson in belly dancing.

Her stomach muscles cramped while shooting for Farah Khan’s forthcoming film Tees Maar Khan.

While rehearsing for the hot number Sheela Ki Jawaani yesterday, Katrina developed a catch in her stomach muscle.

The incident happened in the early hours of the afternoon. Wonder what she had for lunch? Says an eyewitness.

The moment it happened, Katrina shrieked out loud. Farah ran towards her.” At first, Farah couldn’t understand what went wrong with Katrina.

Apparently, the actress couldn’t even speak for a while because she was in a lot of pain.

But when she gestured towards her stomach, Farah understood what had happened.

Katrina’s sudden discomfort was a bit surprising to many, considering it was the seventh day of rehearsal.

But eyewitness added, “It’s a very difficult dance form. You have to see it to believe it.”

When contacted, Katrina denied the story. Putting up a brave front, she said, “I am fine. I am training very well,” but some amount of discomfort did surface when she added, “I have pain in my knees and nowhere else.” However, Farah Khan, who is choreographing the song, confirmed and said, “We packed-up the rehearsal today as Katrina was in a lot of discomfort. I hope that she will be fine in the next one or two days.

For tomorrow (as in today), I have given her an official holiday. As it is, she had been rehearsing this song for the last six days at a stretch.” The actual shoot of Sheela Ki Jawaani starts on August 21. After Tees Maar Khan hits the theatres, Katrina will be at par with Shakira. She has never looked this hot.” That’s a belly sweet compliment, Farah!

Lovers Kareena And Saif turn Biz Partners

Lovers Kareena And Saif turn Biz PartnersSaif Ali Khan has just wrapped up the first schedule of his second production, Agent Vinod, and buzz is that this could be his last co-production with partner Dinesh Vijan.

“It’s a development, not a split,” Khan clarifies, insisting that Vijan and he will continue making films related stories together under the Illuminati Films banner.

“I’m going to make more than one movie at a time, so I will be launching another production house and Kareena (Kapoor) will be on the board of directors. It’s important for my growth as an actor-producer.”

Saif KareenaKunal Kohli’s Hum Tum (2004) had fetched Khan a National Award for Best Actor. However, their second film together, the Indianised Mary Poppins, Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic (2008), did not create any magic at the box-office.

But Khan will team up with Kohli again for a third movie that the latter describes as “a story about love in unexpected places that will redefine the ‘metrosexual’ look.”Love in Spain.

He will also get together with Siddharth Anand (Salaam Namaste, 2005) in a film the director says, is a “one-of-its-kind romantic comedy set in Spain, perfectly suited to Saif’s age and image”. Quiz the actor, who’s just turned 40, on these two projects, and he reminds you that he flagged off the most successful phase in his career, and the trend of multiplex movies, with these two filmmakers. “And from their scripts.

It seems like they’ve both evolved as writer-directors. It would be misleading to call the films deep. They are designed as entertaining love stories, with catchy music, eye-catching locations, comic interactions, a crisis that drives a couple apart and a beautiful end that brings them together,” says Khan. “It’s the kind of cinema our Indian audience enjoys and it has a certain relevance in today’s world,” he adds.

Vishal’s next He’s also in talks with Vishal Bhardwaj, after the critically acclaimed Omkara, for two movies. “Vishal has so many ideas, from a love triangle with a nightmarish scenario to a rustic action-thriller,” informs Khan. “Let’s see what comes out.”

He admits that he could be co-producing at least one of these three movies but it’s unlikely that his working partner, Kareena Kapoor, would feature in any of them. “It would be exciting for the audience and me to work with other female stars,” he reasons.

“I’ve never enforced my will on my producers and eventually it will be the director’s call, but it would be nice to pair up with Deepika (Padukone) again after Love Aaj Kal. And since I’ve never worked with Priyanka (Chopra) and Katrina (Kaif), we could be fresh ‘jodis’ too.”

Neeru, the Katrina of Punjab!

Canadian girl Neeru Bajwa is striking to look at in person. She’s got a sassy attitude and is a smart-dresser. And the reason why she's being discussed right now is because she is considered the Katrina Kaif of Punjab. Neeru’s last two Punjabi films includes the highest grosser of all time Mel Karade Rabba with Jimmy Shergill that catapulted her to the highest paid actress up North.

Hot Neeru, the Katrina of Punjab!

However, in Mumbai, her career nose-dived after Kumar Taurani’s Prince caved in. Neeru, a Taurani protege, says till recently she didn’t have too many Bollywood contacts. So her career in Hindi had ground to a virtual halt. At a chance meeting, the girl mentioned that now she is better networked in Bollywood; and is hoping that she’ll now make strides here in Mumbai just like she has done in Punjab.

Aishwarya Rai vs. Katrina Kaif - Battle Of Beauties

Salman Khan was a lucky chap since he got to romance (on reel as well as in real) two of the most in-demand beauties of the B-town. Katrina Kaif was his muse till recently (now they have severed ties) and Aishwarya Rai was his past. And, now both the ladies have their own demoniacal battle to wage.

Aishwarya Rai vs_ Katrina Kaif - Battle Of Beauties

Summer 2010 was touted to be a fierce war between Kat and Ash since they both were gearing up to sear the screen with their blistering presence. Now that we have witnessed that explosion, the results have been pronounced and verdict passed.

And the younger damsel has gone one up over the older contestant. 25 year old Katrina was the talk of the town as she rattled the box office with her Rajneeti. Linguistic barrier failed to unnerve her and she dished out a mediocre yet fair performance in a film whose content-driven script and power-packed stars delighted the critics and the spectators alike.

However, the same can’t be said about former Miss World and 36-plus Aishwarya Rai who hit rock bottom with Raavan, a promising flick that failed to deliver. Despite a lavish canvas and a crafty director at its helm, a poorly scribbled screenplay confirmed a box office disaster as critics beheaded this ten-headed monster.

Nevertheless, Ash vs. Kat battle is far from over as Ash is ready with her next armoury in the form of Endhiran or Robot that invades the theatres come September. You can check out the review (once it releases) right here. Till then, you may drop in your thoughts.

Katrina Kaif Wear A Mermaid Lehenga At IIJS 2010

Katrina Kaif made us want to leer in a mermaid style Neeta Lulla Lehenga and Nakshatra diamonds on Day one of the India International Jewelry Week (IIJW) 2010 on Sunday, August 15.

Katrina Kaif Wear A Mermaid Lehenga At IIJS 2010

Her Lehenga was tied low enough for us to be embarrassed to see how low it was tied. She seems to have shed some weight because the curves she revealed were sumptuous. Even as she tormented us, Katrina looked a bit tormented herself, at times.

Perhaps her hectic schedule, is weighing her down? Or, maybe she just wasn't happy with where the lehenga was tied? The 26-year-old paired the multi hued peach and orange lehenga with a jeweled mini choli that had beaded string straps and mock sleeves with elaborate jeweled cuffs.

The Nakshatra brand ambassador displayed the Nakshatra bridal collection wearing a diamond choker and a bib necklace that was based on the traditional seven-stone floral cluster design by the brand. She wore matching drop earrings.

Katrina wore heavy layers of foundation, pearl pink blush, peach lipstick, glittery eye-shadow and thick eyeliner only on lids. Her long hair was styled with a low side parting and vertical waves. She unveiled a new bangle collection - The Divine Circles - at the show. Speaking about her association with the Nakshatra brand, Katrina said.

"First and foremost Nakshatra is a very iconic brand because it's not just a jewelry brand, it symbolizes the Indian woman." She said it feels great to be the face of the brand as "it makes you feel that you have that special place in people's hearts." Katrina is on a break from the filming of Zoya Akhtar's Zindagi Na Milegi Dubara in Spain.

Beauty Queen Lara Dutta wants To Reinvent Herself Constantly

From a beauty queen to a promising star in showbiz, Lara Dutta has come up a long way and she owes her success in films to the 'mantra' of reinventing constantly. The 32-year-old beauty, who is in seventh year of her professional career has essayed a variety of roles and is positive about playing a long innings.

Beauty Queen Lara Dutta wants To Reinvent Herself Constantly

"It's as simple as that; I don't want to just sit down and say that I have been a model in the past and a Miss Universe with some good Bollywood hits behind me so I should just sit back and bask in that glory. Sorry, there is no point in doing that. I have been enjoying a certain standing right throughout my career and I am not going to let anyone down", said Lara who was last seen in comic-caper Housefull.

Lara says that she is one of the few leading ladies who have managed to carry off the skimpiest of outfits without even bordering upon vulgarity. "Thankfully I can never come across as someone who is cheap. I want my audience to react positively to me and thankfully, so far the reactions have been heart-warming enough to make me feel good that I am doing things right", she said.

"For me, reinvention is the name of the game. It has always been the case. For my role in 'Blue', I had to be fit and be in perfect shape since the role required good deal of underwater sequences. Now that's not something that you normally see a girl to be doing. Then again in Housefull, I had to be totally glam even though I played the role of a wife.

All these films have helped a great deal for me personally," Lara added. However, despite all the accolades coming her way, Lara has very few roles in her kitty for the coming year. "Well, all I can say is that you make the best of the choices that come your way. When I look back, it has been a good innings so far.

Whether it is the films that you mention or even Billu which came last year, they all have been very special to me in my career. Lara will next be seen in filmmaker Sudhir Mishra's Aur Devdas and Farhan Akhtar's Don 2 - The Chase Continues.

"Perhaps a few films may not have done well but as an actor they took me forward. These films gave me a chance to be seen in performance oriented roles," she said. "I would rather work in a film where I add value. I am not going anywhere in a hurry. Moreover, with the kind of appreciation that I have received, I am sure that good roles will of course come," Lara added.

Sonakshi Sinha learns painting from Salman

Bollywood actor Salman Khan has not only been a mentor but also a guru to Sonakshi Sinha, daughter of actor Shatrughan Sinha. Besides giving her a big break in Dabangg, Salman has taught the young actress another form of art – painting."

Sonakshi Sinha learns painting from Salman

I was good at sketching (that’s part of my fashion designer training) but Salman taught me how to raise that art to a new level by introducing me to painting. Painting has a calming effect on me. For now I stick to forms and faces,” the Times of India quoted Sonakshi as saying.

The beautiful said that she took up acting by accident but has fallen in love with it. “I never thought about getting into films though I did have an interest in modelling. Actually, Arbaaz and Salman saw me walk the ramp and approached me for their film. Now I’m hooked to films. I enjoy acting.” Now, she is taking extra care in choosing films.

“I know who I am going to be paired with next, but I can’t talk about it now. And if ever I am going to sign a film it should at least be as good as or better than Dabangg.” She added. Well, she is very lucky to have an actor like Salman to launch her. She has every possibility to become famous like Katrina Kaif, as they share the same mentor in Salman!

One girl pulled my hand and bit my finger hard! But today's aunty shocked me more!” she had twitted. Well, Bipasha should be more careful about her female fans than her male fans in the days to come!

Kat gets labelled unprofessional

Kat gets labelled unprofessionalKatrina Kaif has been given a lot of titles: Salman Khan’s girlfriend (or former, as is the case now), the most beautiful actress in Bollywood and others but the latest one is ‘unprofessional’. And it’s none other than the famous director duo Abbas-Mustan who have bestowed her with this title.

The director duo were left baffled after she walked out of their remake of Italian Job without having the decency to inform either of them.

Once upon a time, Katrina was their absolute favourite and vice versa. No one can forget what Race did for Kat’s career. And that’s the reason why Kat was an obvious choice for their remake of Italian Job.

But poor fellas didn’t realise that it doesn’t take time for Kat to change sides. One Yash Raj movie was enough for Katrina to drop them like hot potatoes. She is doing an YRF film with Imran Khan.

Abbas Burmawala has openly vented out on how unprofessional Katrina has become. When quizzed whether she left the movie because Priyanka Chopra was also considered for the movie, Abbas clarifies that this is far from reality. He asserts that Priyanka was never considered for the film.

It was only Katrina who was going to play the role of the leading lady. He added that she was also keen on working with Abhishek Bachchan. And when they had asked her whether she was okay with being cast opposite AB, she had given them a green signal. He also says that she has left them in a fix as the shooting starts in November.

But to their good fortune they have found a new replacement - Sonam Kapoor. She has apparently replaced Kat and will star opposite Abhishek Bachchan, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Bobby Deol. “Considering Sonam’s growing popularity in the industry she was the obvious choice for the film”, says an insider. This will be Sonam’s second film with Abhishek Bachchan after Delhi-6.

My character not influenced by Rani, Kajol: Deepika

My character not influenced by Rani, Kajol: DeepikaDeepika Padukone is playing a blind girl in 'Lafangey Parindey' and it instantly reminds one of Rani Mukherji's performance in 'Black'(2005) and Kajol's in 'Fanaa'(2006), but the actress maintains that she didn't let either of them influence her character.

"I have seen Rani in 'Black' and Kajol in 'Fanaa', but I didn't see them before my own performance because I didn't want to be influence by anyone else's performance.

I wanted my own take on what suits my character," Deepika told reporters at a press meet. "I have spend a lot of time with blind people and that helped me a lot," she added.

For the press meet, the set of Tilak Wadi, a fictitious place in Mumbai shown in 'Lafangey Parindey', was made in the studio and Neil Nitin Mukesh, Deepika along with a few other actors did a small act to give a feel of the film.

Singer Shail Hada, Suraj Jagan and Shilpa Rao sang songs from the film and it was complemented with dance performance. "I doubt if ever I have promoted any of my film like this. Another thing is I for the first time I interacted with my audience and fans at such an extent," said Neil.

Lara Dutta’s secret is out

Lara Dutta’s secret is outFor some odd reason, Lara Dutta’s being very secretive about her fitness video. The actress continues to deny that she is working on one.

Even her publicist swore that there is nothing happening on that front. However inside details are that the actress has finished working on the video. It has been shot on a set at Mehboob Studio. It has been produced by her boyfriend Mahesh Bhupathi’s firm Globosport.

He has closely worked with Lara on the ideation and design for the DVD. The video begins with a half-hour cardio session and then gives the viewer the option of choosing either the beginners’ or advanced levels.

While Bipasha’s video featured her friend and fitness expert Deanne Pandey, Lara’s expert is Zarine Watson, who runs a gym called Watson Fitness centre in Bandra where Karan Johar, Arjun Rampal and other celebs work out.

Bunty Walia’s girlfriend (also Dutta’s gym buddy) Debi Dutta is part of this video and has demonstrated the beginners’ workout regimen. Lara has demonstrated the exercises in the advanced level.

The advanced version with Lara has tougher exercises a combination of core strengthening and cardiovascular exercises. . Emphasis has been laid on maintaining a correct posture and form.

The DVD will be out this year. There are also workouts for pregnant women and for those with physical ailments such as back and knee problems. There is a special segment on diet. A consultant will talk about the benefits of eating the right food and maintaining a rigorous diet.
