Twinkle shows up on the cover of the November issue of Harper's Bazaar

Twinkle shows up on the cover of the November issue of Harper's BazaarTwinkle appears on the cover of the November issue of Harper's Bazaar that focuses on the theme of 'fabulous at every age'. Akshay Kumar's wife reveals in the interview how her style statement has evolved over the years, how her work has influenced her fashion sense and how she is glad not to be a part of Bollywood.

On styling, Twinkle says Akki: "I take full credit for his style; what's nice is that he likes to experiment. He has more shoes than I do, and gets bored of wearing a black shirt with trousers. He likes me to oversee his wardrobe, especially for an event. If it's for a show, we discuss the look together. He also takes interest in the way I look. So does my son. My husband has comments on everything I wear.

When asked if she ever misses acting, the lady says, "I have not missed it for a single day. I hated every minute of it. I might have enjoyed my last two movies only because I knew I was quitting (in 2001). I have a job that I love and sometimes dream about. That never happened to me with acting. And I don't even think I was a good actress."

Priyanka Chopra is dazing: Sidhartha

At the launch of the Kingfisher calendar girls hunt 2011, Sid was asked who he thought has the perfect body in bollywood? While one hoped he would say Deepika, he surprised one and all.

Priyanka Chopra is dazing: Sidhartha

"I think all of them are very beautiful and have great looking bodies but I feel Priyanka is particularly stunning." Deepika took the news sportingly: "I think I am blessed with a great face and body but her (Priyanka's) mental state and strength makes her successful and how she carries herself." Deepika also said she was glad to be chosen as a Calendar Girl before the company began the selection process via a contest.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Kareena Kapoor are rivaling one another for the No. 1

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Kareena Kapoor are rivaling one another for the No. 1As per recent reports, Bollywood hotties Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Kareena Kapoor are competing with each other for the No. 1 spot. However, Ash rubbishes the reports as pure rumours. Interestingly, both the divas have their next biggies 'Action Replayy' and 'Golmaal 3' releasing on the same day.

Thus, questions about the competition for the No. 1 spot were inevitable. When posed with such a query recently, Ash laughed it off and replied, "Do you think so? I never worked like that. Never felt any competition or followed any."

She further explained that she never planned her career with an agenda to become No. 1 in Bollywood rather believed in giving her best to the films and characters in hand. "I never planned my films; I don't think we can do that," said Aishwarya and pointed out, "I made my debut with a regional film 'Iruvar' opposite Mohanlal. I worked with Shah Rukh for the first time as a sister in 'Josh'. I chose my path. I never thought or was concerned about competition. And if you ask me about being the highest paid actress in Bollywood, I think you get what you deserve." She concluded. We wish Ash all the best for her film and hope she doesn't cross the thin line between confidence and overconfidence.

Katrina Kaif Comes open concerning her Past and Present with Ex Salman Khan

Katrina Kaif Comes open concerning her Past and Present with Ex Salman KhanKatrina Kaif the sizzling bollywood actress has always been a perfect female figure for many. Scoring her in terms of her appeal, acting and looks Katrina is full on full.

With a huge fan following Katrina was always recognized as the lady love of actor Salman Khan but just recently the actress has come out in the open about her relationship status and also the intricate details of the couple’s relationship. Salman and Katrina have been together since the past seven years however recently the two made it public that they were no longer seeing each other.

Katrina never spoke of her break up initially as she was scared about the effect that this break up will have on her career however when she felt that her bollywood persona was altogether steady then the actress declared that Salman and she had taken up separate paths and are no longer Kat has still not clarified the details and causes behind the break up but is still very close to Salman’s family including his sister Alvira and his father Salim Khan.

Kat told media that her personal life was just too private to be shared on the media front however according to what can be seen, Katrina is still well connected to Salman’s family and it is for this reason that the break up was never quite evident as Kat would be seen hanging around with Sallu’s people.

Katrina has also revealed that her friendship with Salman will never end and this is the reason that the two always acknowledge each others presence at social gatherings or events. In any case the only deduction that can be made out of this is that Salman the eligible Bachelor is yet again single and so is the bollywood princess of hearts Katrina Kaif.

Abhishek Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Neil Nitin Mukesh for 'The Italian Job'

So, finally, director duo Abbas – Mustan’s remake of the cult heist film ‘The Italian Job’ is taking some shape. Abhishek Bachchan, Neil Nitin Mukesh and Katrina Kaif have been signed on for the lead roles in this film, titled ‘Players’, which is to be produced by Studio 18.

Abhishek Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Neil Nitin Mukesh: 'The Italian Job'

Earlier there was a lot of confusion with regard to the female lead as none of the top Bollywood actresses were willing to step into the film as the heroine has hardly anything substantial to do in the male centric film. But now we hear Katrina has given her nod. The rest of the cast is yet to be finalised. It is being said that the budget of the film is around Rs 40 crore, excluding prints and advertising. Meantime, the directors are also working on the sequel to ‘Race’ which is expected to release next year.

Asin prepared for love but not marriage

Asin prepared foe love but not marriageShuttling between the shooting schedules for Bodyguard with Tollywood actor Vikram, and Ready with Salman Khan, Asin “is greatful to having got a day off to celebrate her birthday with friends and family today”.

Now that the actor is 25 years old, does she have any plans to settle down? “If I meet a nice person, why not? I am open to love. When you live a public life, it’s difficult to find a date,” says the actor, before clarifying that she is not planning to get married anytime soon as she is concentrating on her career.

“But I am not shutting out a possibility of a romance,” she says. Though she doesn’t have a list of “must-haves” for her boyfriend to fit into, she does “value integrity and character a lot”. The actor, who started working in films at a very young age, never had the time to develop crushes onasin anyone. But now that she has a chance, will she be the one to make the first move in a budding romance? “Even if I like someone, I don’t think I would make the first move. I am not consciously anticipating or planning anything. I think the guy needs to make the first move.”Meanwhile, for her 25th birthday today, three of her childhood friends have flown in from Liverpool, Australia and New York. “I am pleasantly surprised that they came all the way,” says Asin. Last year her parents had surprised her by decorating the house, while Salman’s (Khan) younger sister came over with a few friends and brought her a cake at midnight.

Hrithik Roshan Kisses Katrina Kaif

Yess Folks!! You got that right. That isnt a Bollywood Gossip but a Bollywood News of the year. Bollywood’s reigning Diva Katrina Kaif is all set to make her onscreen smooch debut with none other than Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan.

Director Zoya Akhtar has a shot a two- minute steamy kissing scene, being touted as the longest lip lock in Bollywood so far, for her upcoming biggie Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara. Hrithik and Katrina are set to be casting opposite each other for the very first time in Zoya Akhtar’s film, though the two superstars have posed for the cover of Harper’s Bazaar magazine in the past.

But director Zoya is reluctant to reveal details on the kiss. “I don’t want to discuss details because we are still shooting the film. All I can say is that whatever we have shot is integral to the plot. Everything has been filmed beautifully and the actors look great together on screen,” she says.

Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara, Zoya’s second film after Luck By Chance, also stars her brother Farhan Akhtar along with Dev D duo Abhay Deol and Kalki Koechlin.

A large portion of the film has been shot in Spain where the unit drew the flak of animal activists when the three male actors shot a bull- running sequence.

According to reports, Katrina Kaif is also said to have done some daredevil bike stunts in the film.

Hrithik & Katrina set for one hell of a long kiss While this will be Katrina’s maiden on-screen kiss, Hrithik has mastered the smooching art.

He shared his first onscreen kiss with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the 2006 blockbuster Dhoom 2 and smooched Mexican beauty Barbara Mori in his dud home production Kites earlier this year.

If Hrithik and Aishwarya were quite uncomfortable while doing the kissing scene for Dhoom 2, Katrina‘s condition was no different when she was informed about the kissing scene by the director.

Says a source close to Katrina: “Initially, she was hesitant to doing the kissing scene with Hrithik. She wasn’t very enthusiastic about the idea. However, the director managed to convince her in the end.” Sources on the set of the film claim that despite her initial reluctance Katrina seemed quite comfortable kissing Hrithik when the scene was shot. The actress was very professional and co- operative all along, they add.

The kissing sequence happens at an important moment in the film where Hrithik Roshan‘s character looks into the eyes of the heroine and bids her goodbye without saying a word.

It is only then that the girl realises how much she loves him and runs up to him to seal her affection with a lip lock. So far, the longest kiss on- screen was shared by Aamir Khan and Karisma Kapoor in Raja Hindustani. It lasted for about a minute.

Whether Katrina manages to strike chemistry with Hrithik in Zoya’s film remains to be seen. One thing is sure, though – they will set a new record for Hindi films when it comes to puckering up.

Shahrukh has quite a following in Germany, to add to that his fans have descended on the town of Berlin, to catch a glimpse of their favourite star, prompting Shahrukh to joke, "You will have problems getting rid of all the Indians again.

Billed as an Indo-Germain production Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg is financially supporting Don 2, and Shahrukh hopes that Don 2 will begin a new love affair between Bollywood and Berlin, and encourage millions of Indians to visit the beautiful city.

In the movie, Shahrukh Khan’s character, the elusive don, will be wanted by the police of 132 countries, against the 11 countries in the first film. The sequel retains its original cast of Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani, and includes some new names like Lara Dutta, Sameera Reddy and Kunal Kapoor.

'Don 2' will have deadlier stunts and chases than 'Don', featuring famous Berlin landmarks, including the great Cathedral, and a car chase through the streets of Berlin around Checkpoint Charley. After filming a scene at a building near Berlin’s TV tower, Shahrukh had tweeted, "Just did an over 300 feet base jump for Don... because you all make me believe I can fly,"

Deepika Padukone to replace Priyanka Chopra

Director Siddharth Anand’s next flick Two States based on novelist Chetan Bhagat’s fiction was announced a few days ago.

It was also said that, actors Saif Ali Khan (playing a Punjabi Boy) and Priyanka Chopra (playing a South Indian girl) will play the lead characters of ‘Krissh’ and ‘Ananya’, respectively. But the recent buzz suggests that Deepika Padukone will probably replace Priyanka as the female lead.

Deepika Padukone to substitute Priyanka Chopra?

A source informed that producer Sajid Nadidwala and director Siddharth feel that Deepika Padukone is a better choice for the role of a South Indian girl than Priyanka. The makers of the film are not revealing anything on records. If the change happens, then we may get to see the Love Aaj Kal pair on-screen once again.

Vidya Balan to perform with Rajini

Vidya Balan to perform with RajiniBollywood babe Vidya Balan has openly expressed her fondness to work with super star Rajinikanth. She was reacting to some media reports claiming that she has been offered a role in Rajini’s new flick ‘Hara’. Vidya says she has still not been officially approached to play a role in ‘Hara’.

But she says she will immediately accept if an offer to work with Rajinikanth comes her way. If she is destined to work in Kollywood films nothing can be bigger than a Rajini film, Vidya feels.

After the news started travelling, Vidya says even her parents have become keen to see her along with the super star. ‘Hara’ is the new and improved version of ‘Sultan the Warrior’. The animation flick is now taken over by KS Ravikumar, who will transform it as a live-cum-animation film with all available materials.

Katrina Kaif: The Hair Scare

Bollywood Hot Actress Katrina Kaif: The Hair ScareKatrina Kaif, the Barbie doll of B town is rather in bad hair days these past few days! Well, this is not to say that she’s not getting her look right with a bad hair setting or hairstyle. Rather, it is something which is almost, quite a scary experience that the star went through recently, on the sets of a film that she’s been shooting for.

Reportedly, Katrina Kaif, who is in the northern part of India with the cast and crew of the Yash Raj banner ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’, which has Imran Khan and the Pop singer from Pakistan Ali Zafar (who couldn’t recognize her at a film bash recently, as he had never met her before) as her co stars in the film, really had a hair scare on the sets.It so happened, that while the cast and crew were getting down to work, suddenly there was an agitated Ali Zafar,who sprang up and tried to rescue Katrina Kaif’s hair from the clutches of the pedestal fan near which she was sitting.

Now, as the bright guy showed so much of a presence of mind, and managed to rescue Kat’s crowning glory from being reduced to a clump of hair, he was rewarded with a big hug from Kat!

Well, that reward was certainly well deserved, and the message for our stars? Well, if ever you do get the opportunity to rescue a star from distress, go ahead, you never know when that genuine hug might just come your way!

It's great to work with such big artistes from across the globe. Ludacris is going to make the music video one to watch out for. It's going to be rocking!"

Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra Cold War growing

Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra Cold War growingThe cold war between Bollywood beauties – Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra – is fast intensifying, with a makeup artist the reason for the latest outbreak of hostilities, according to a Pakistani daily.

‘The war between Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra is not a new thing. For a long time, reports of mutual dislike between both have been circulating. This time, another undeclared outbreak of war between the two is over their favourite makeup artist Pompy, who is the stylist for both,’ the Urdu daily Jang reported.

According to the paper, Priyanka wanted Pompy for her makeup in her film ‘Anjaana Anjaani’ but when she contacted him, she found out Kareena had taken the makeup artist with her to Sydney, and thus Priyanka was unable to avail of Pompy’s services for her film.

‘It is these things that keep on adding to the bitterness between the two and thus the gulf between the two first-rank actresses is increasing day by day,’ the report said. Kareena Kapoor, often informally referred to as Bebo, is an Indian film actress who appears in Bollywood films. Born into a film family where both her parents, Randhir Kapoor and Babita, and her elder sister Karisma were actors, Kapoor faced the media spotlight from a very young age. However, she did not make her acting debut until the 2000 film Refugee, which earned her the Filmfare Best Female Debut Award.

Her melodrama Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham became India’s highest grossing film in the overseas market in 2001 and is her biggest commercial success to date. After receiving negative reviews for a series of repetitive roles between 2002 and 2003, Kapoor accepted more demanding parts in order to avoid being typecast. Consequently, from 2004 to 2006 she was recognized by critics for displaying greater versatility. Her portrayal of a sex worker in Chameli (2004) proved to be the turning point in her career and garnered her the Filmfare Special Performance Award. She later received two Critics Awards for Best Actress at the Filmfare ceremony for her performances in the critically acclaimed Dev (2004) and Omkara (2006).

Vidya Balan will enjoy sunday

Instead of eat, pray, love, Vidya Balan is indulging in eat, pray and work. In Kolkata, shooting for Sujoy Ghosh’s next film for the next two months, she is having the time of her life. Vidya who started her film career with a Bengali film is happy to be back in Kolkata because this is the only city in India which treats her like a superstar. The Parineeta girl’s popularity in the city is mindboggling and she had throngs of followers dropping by on her sets and inviting her for their neighborhood Durga pooja celebrations. Obviously this kind of adulation is great for the ego and it keeps Vidya in a great mood at all times.

Vidya Balan enjoy sunday

An easy going Vidya was also thrilled to be in her favourite city during Durga Pooja and after pack-up made it a point to pandal-hop and visit every pooja she was invited to. You can never get too much of blessings, but Vidya needs to realise that she needs to go slow with her eating. The girl’s been gorging on Bengali khana and mishti. She better realise it’s all about size zero, not size 100 these days.

Shilpa Shetty desires fair, equalized catching on IPL fiasco

Shilpa Shetty desires fair, equalized catching on IPL fiascoActress turned businesswoman Shilpa Shetty , who's distressed after the termination of her IPL team Rajasthan Royals (RR), says she wants a fair and balanced hearing over the matter.

"It's been a very distressing time for us all at RR after all we've put in (passion n time)," Shilpa wrote on microblogging site Twitter Thursday. "All we ask is for a fair and balanced hearing on issues raised, given the adverse national and international impact on 'Brand IPL' in the interests of fans and teams."

"Most importantly a transparent process and enquiry..allegation is that our ownership has changed since 2008. Thats Untrue," she said.

"The only change to ownership was the introduction of my husband Raj Kundra, for which we had full BCCI permission and support at the time," she added.

The IPL governing council (GC) terminated the contracts of Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab for violating the franchise pact. While Shilpa and her London-based husband Raj Kundra own Rajasthan Royals, actress Preity Zinta has a stake in Kings XI Punjab.

Shilpa had said at the time that she was "too shocked to react" to the termination. "This is for all those who want my reaction 'Honestly too shocked to react, just disheartened... cause it's more than just a team for us! Still haven't received the termination, will react after. Need to know the basis of this decision.' In London now (sic)," Shilpa tweeted at the time.

Shahrukh Khan's Don 2 gets refund from the German Government

After the immensely successful remake of the blockbuster Don, Shahrukh Khan all set to star again in the sequel which is being shot in Berlin. The German government is to provide an astounding rebate of 3 million euros to the producers. Sources reveal that this is the first time that such a heavy concession is being offered to any film shot in the country.

The action sequences and stunts are already being filmed in the commercial districts of the city. The production schedule is to last for over two months in and around various locations in Berlin. The source also reveals that the German government has announced on their website that they will co-operate and support the filming of the movie. A local film promotion company named Medienboard has provided local support with 550,000 euros in the form of funds. This is the first time an India film has received such a big investment from a local media company.

Tourism in Berlin is expected to get a boost from Don 2; a source adds that after Shahrukh attended the Berlinale Film Festival last year for his film My Name Is Khan, the decision was made to shoot Don 2 in the German Capital. Producer Ritesh Sidhwani said that the filming of the movie would include the country's culture to a minimum point so that it would get a certain portion of subsidy on the budget spent in Germany. He however, refused to speculate on the rebate being offered.

Akshay Kumar is gearing up to take Aishwarya Rai on a romantic drive

Akshay Kumar is gearing up to take Aishwarya Rai on a romantic driveAkshay will be driving an Impala, and the two of them will be interacting with their fans and educating them on the art of wooing a girl while on a drive.

Akshay has been seen in a retro avatar over the last month to promote his upcoming flick Action Replayy and this drive is the latest marketing strategy for the film. The idea for the drive was conceived jointly by Akshay, Aishwarya and producer Vipul Shah as they felt that this would appeal to the audiences the most.

While speaking to the media, Vipul said “We felt that the charm of retro can’t be conveyed convincingly in mere words or visuals. It would make a bigger impact if we show it to the people.

Vipul has his eyes set on a bright red convertible Dodge Impala for the promotional event as it will add to the impact, “In our film, I also used an open convertible Dodge Impala in bright red. So we just might bring it back as its colour will add significantly to the overall impact of Akshay and Aishwarya’s drive,” added Vipul.

Vipul who has so far not spoken much about Aishwarya during the Action Replayy promotional events, said that he found Aishwarya to be simple and down to earth saying, "I think this entire 'Diva' thing attached to Ash is just a media perceived image."

Vipul said that even though Aishwarya Rai was considered to be the most beautiful woman,she remains untouched by all the success and glory, and is just as simple as she first started.

Vipul Shah's ‘Action Replayy’ is an unusual love story that unfolds backwards in time. Be ready to feel the magic of retro with this film which is based on a 1994 Gujarati play 'Action Replay', and is a time-travel comedy capturing Mumbai in the 1970s. Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai play a couple who are constantly fighting with each other but were able to rekindle love on their 33rd marriage anniversary.

Kareena Kapoor wearing golmaal t-shirts

Kareena Kapoor wearing golmaal t-shirtsNo designer gowns and dresses for Kareena Kapoor. The actress has been wearing her Golmaal 3 T-shirts with interesting dialogues from the film written on them for all the promotional events of the film.

Last week she was seen on Zee's Sa Re Ga Ma Pa and Star Plus's Chote Ustad wearing the tees from G3. In Golmaal 3 she plays a character called Dabboo, who according to Bebo is, "a bit of a tomboy and chavanni chhaap.

When we sat down to discuss the look of the character we felt that she should wear interesting tees. The idea to have the dialogues on the tees was Manish's (Malhotra).

The T-shirts with messages were created specially for her character, "Dabboo is a total film buff and watches all Hindi films. She spouts Hindi film dialogues at the drop of a hat.

So we had tees which had famous Hindi film dialogues like Kitne aadme the Kaalia, Main apni favorite hoon, Mind it rascal, Chal Dhanno, Jahanpanah tussi great ho! written on them.

Rohit and Manish were very clear that though Dabboo was a tomboy, the character should dress masculine. The tees are subtly feminine."

Bebo adds, "Many people have already approached my marketing agency and G3 producers Ashtavinayak for tie up to merchandise the tees at various outlets for purchase. We will be working out a strategy for the marketing and sale of the T-shirts after the release."

He has been offered the central role in two international projects by two of the most recognised Indian female directors abroad Mira Nair and Deepa Mehta, and he can pick only one. Not only do the dates for the two projects clash, so do the directors helming the two projects.

NRI queens both, Mehta and Nair have never been known to see eye to eye. While Mira Nair's The Namesake could be considered the breakthrough Indian film in the international market, her rival Deepa Mehta's Water is the desi film that has cracked the list of Oscar-nominated films in the foreign language film category.Both the directors are ready to embark on another competitive journey.

While Mira wants to cast Shaks in her wide-screen adaptation of Mohsin Hamid's The Reluctant Fundamentalist, Deepa wants to pair him against the Resident Evil hottie Milla Jovovich in her film entitled Beeba Boyz about a Punjabi gangster and his firangi moll.Says a source close to Deepa, "She feels Shahid's boyish charm and his inherent Punjabiyat is perfect for the part in Beeba Boyz. She has in fact sounded him out and he has shown interest."But the actor knows he can do only one of the two films. Which one will he pick? It is an either/or situation. Your call, Shahid.

Bipasha Basu and John Abraham to attend Durga puja togather

In her own words, actress Bipasha Basu took actor-beau John Abraham to her hometown in Kolkata seven years ago, when they were just a year-old in their relationship. The star couple are once again Kolkata- bound for some family time with Bipasha’s parents, sisters —Bidisha and Vijayeta, and her extended family for Durga puja. The actor this time is looking forward to it for more than one reason.

Bipasha Basu and John Abraham to attend Durga puja togather

“It’s my mother’s birthday on Nabami (October 16), and I’m planning to give her a surprise. I’m also dying to see my niece (Bidisha’s three-year-old daughter), who I’ve not seen for a long time. Yes, it is going to be one big family reunion,” says Bipasha. “Last time when I went with John it was pandemonium.

The only thing that she misses about not celebrating Durga puja in Mumbai is not being able to spend time with her friend and actor Rani Mukherjee at the Durga puja held by her family (organised by the North Bombay Sarbojonin Durga Puja Charitable Trust and supported by DNA).

“Attending the family puja organised by the Mukerji clan is a tradition that I’ve followed even when I was a model. It used to be the closest to my house. It’s around this time that I became friends with Rani and got close to the family. I have some fondest memories of the Durga puja there, after I moved to Mumbai. I am a regular there, and it has always kept me in touch with my roots,” she says.

Asin Thottumkal and salman Khan perform togather in new flick

Asin Thottumkal and salman Khan perform togather in new flickAsin Thottumkal acting with Salman Khan in movie ‘Ready‘. After making it big in Bollywood with the Hindi version of her Tamil film ‘Ghajini’, Asin is now on a remake spree. The young actress says such offers only help her reach out to a wider audience in different parts of the country.

‘If it’s an entertaining film and a great story then I think it should be made for a larger audience and not particularly restricted to a group…Remakes help in doing that – to get a wider audience and to get the film across to a larger number of people,’ Asin told IANS over telephone from Mumbai.

A superstar down south, Asin made her Bollywood debut opposite Aamir Khan in the hit psychological action thriller Ghajini’ (2008) – a remake of its 2005 Tamil namesake. She played the same role in both outings.

The 24-year-old is now working on ‘Ready’ with Salman Khan, and a Tamil movie ‘Kaavalan’, which are the remakes of a Telugu namesake and Malayalam movie ‘Bodyguard’ respectively. Apparently Salman will also star in a Hindi remake of ‘Kaavalan’ after ‘Ready’.

Will she star in the Hindi remake too?

‘I have not discussed that yet with anyone and I don’t think the casting has been decided,’ said Asin.

Aren’t there any problems of repeating yourself in a remake?

‘The director is there to help you in that and you know your character well. For you it’s a new script and a fresh project. You are not in any way repeating yourself. So you approach it in that way,’ she said.

Having worked in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi films, Asin is open to working in other languages as well.

‘Language is not a criterion. It depends on the project. If a project excites me… I’d readily take that up. I’m basically looking at projects that are not language-bound or from different boundaries,’ she said.

Sid has been cast by John Madden in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. He will begin shooting for his portions of the film from mid-November. When asked about how he bagged the role, the actor says, "It was a pretty straightforward route. I auditioned for the part and it worked at both ends." Elaborating on his role, Sid says, "My role may be small but it is an important one. I have scenes with a bunch of members from both, the Indian and the English cast." So, how does Sid see his growth as an actor in this industry? "When I did KKKK, I thought I was the luckiest guy on the planet.

And though the movie bombed, I still had conviction in myself and my talent. I did plays. I decided that these are rules that are only meant to be broken." Come to think of it, it's this very conviction that has already started paying off.

After stepping out of her comfort zone and performing a special song for Santosh Sivan's Malayalam venture Urumi, Vidya was offered an impromptu special guest appearance in the film that had the director impressed to no end.

A 5 page Malayalam dialogue was handed to Vidya just minutes before the scene and the star took up the challenge of learning her lines in the limited time frame only to vow everyone with her flawless delivery.

Says a source " Vidya's guest appearance was a spot decision and she was handed the dialogues just over 10 minutes before the scene -she skipped lunch and sat to learn the lines and stunned everyone with her flawless dialogue delivery. She was so good in fact that she moved everyone on the sets."

Santosh Sivan now wants to work on a full fledged film with Vidya Balan who in his opinion is one of the most intense actors he has come across. "Santoshji has often said that Vidya's eyes can convey a thousand words - and after having her as guest in Urumi he is kicked about doing his next film with her" adds the source.

Kareena Kapoor is an emotional and sort hearted actress

Kareena Kapoor is an emotional and sort hearted actressKareena Kapoor is surely an emotional and kind-hearted actress, which was proved recently, when she appeared on a music reality show to promote her upcoming movie Golmaal 3.Now, here, something happened that was totally unexpected for Kareena. Suddenly, the host announced that they have brought a very special person to the show, who has been very closely associated with Bebo's grandfather Raj Kapoor. He also said that the person has cradled Kareena when she was a little kid. But this renowned technician of yesteryear is now very lonely and in deep financial trouble.

Kareena was in tears on listening this news. In a few moments, a man seated on a wheel chair was taken to the stage while the live audience maintained a total silence. The host paid his homage to the man saying that industry people tend to forget the contribution made by the technicians to the world of cinema.

An overwhelmed Kareena walked up to the frail man with a cheque of Rs 8 lakhs. The old man accepted the cheque with shaky hands. A humbled Kareena, then, bent down to take his blessings. At this point of time, she was shocked to see that the old man rose up from the chair and took off his wig. When the person removed his makeup, it was found to be her co-star comedian Vrajesh Hirjee.

However, Kareena took it sportingly and said that thankfully she did not touch his feet. She broke into a laughter and tears turned into smiles!

“I think it’s a great compliment. I’d love to do a film like Amar Prem. I want to do a classic Hindi film heroine’s part. That is my true calling. I’m really looking forward to it.” Padukone and Sharmila Tagore have become close since Tagore played her mother in the film Break Ke Baad. The film has been directed by Danish Aslam and stars Imran Khan in the male lead. Padukone can’t keep the admiration out of her voice while speaking of the senior actor.

“We had our dimples in common and that broke the ice. She’s one of the most elegant ladies I’ve come across,” Padukone said. Padukone also refused to comment on reports she was dating Siddharth Mallya. “We all know how true such rumours are. I’m very uncomfortable talking about it. Let the press write and say what it has to. I’m not saying anything.”

Imran gets 16 slaps from Katrina to construct the scene perfect

Imran gets 16 slaps from Katrina to construct the scene perfectImran Khan seems to be following his mamu, Amir Khan’s steps in becoming a perfectionist, but what he didn't expect was that he might have to get slapped 16 times instead of just once and pay the price for being the “perfect” one.

In ‘ Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’ starring Imran Khan and opposite to him, Katrina Kaif, the actor had to take 16 slaps from Kaif during one of its shoots and what is more surprising is that the scene from the scrip required just one slap but it was Imran himself who insisted that Katrina should slap him more, infact 16 times.

When Katrina was asked about this strange request of Imran, she replied that she would have slapped just once and moved on but Imran insisted that it should be more realistic and called a boy to count the number of slaps and it had to 16 precisely not more not less. She didnt even know why he had to be slapped 16 times exactly.

Even though this request of Imran came as a surprise to Katrina, she is not very proud of slapping him so many times but she definitely is happy about the slaps being completely real and authentic. It is weird seeing Imran’s sheer interest in getting slapped so many times, would he have done the same had it been a kissing scene ?

After fulfilling their demand, Ajay asked the composers to do a stunt that he chose to demonstrate - he broke a bottle on Shetty's head and the latter started bleeding. When Ajay asked Sajid-Wajid to be ready for the same, they chickened out, said a source from the sets. But guess who was sporting enough? It was the show's new host, actor Manish Paul, who ended up getting the bottle cracked on his derriere. The episode will be telecast on Sunday.

She is also believed to have asked that the outfits she wears in the movie not be too revealing. Plus she doesn’t want any song steps choreographed on her to be vulgar.
