Pooja Bedi in Telugu film Shakti as Egyptian princess

Pooja Bedi in Telugu film Shakti as Egyptian princessActress Pooja Bedi is upbeat about her comeback to Telugu cinema. Nearly two decades after featuring in Chittemma Mogudu alongside Mohan Babu, she will now be seen as an Egyptian princess in Junior NTR-starrer Shakti.

With a budget of Rs.45 crore, the film is being touted as the costliest movie in the Telugu film industry. 'I've just finished a Telugu film with Junior NTR. It's called Shakti. It is one of the biggest budget Telugu films, and I play an Egyptian princess with supernatural powers in it,' said Pooja. Without divulging too many details, the 40-year-old said the movie will be 'high on sci-fi and special effects'.

Shakti has actress Ileana D'Cruz in the lead, and features other Bollywood actors Jackie Shroff, Sonu Sood and Manjari Phadnis. Best remembered for her Marilyn Monroe skirt act in 'Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander', Pooja has been missing from the big screen for a long time. She is more active on small screen and participated in reality shows and even got to host her own chat show - 'Just Pooja'.

She participated in dance reality shows Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 1 and Nach Baliye 3. She tried daredevil in the first season of Fear Factor - Khatron Ke Khiladi. Recently she featured in Sony TV's Maa Exchange, a twisted Indian version of internationally popular show Wife Swap. Now she is keen on more reality shows and a comeback with her talk show.

'I am getting more offers for reality shows. Let's see what I decide. But I am very hopeful to return with my own talk show where I can be a relationship counsellor for the general people. I think I can handle it really well,' said Pooja.

Pooja, daughter of actor Kabir Bedi and late Odissi dancer Protima Bedi, is a single mother to daughter Aalia, 13 and a son Omar, 10. She divorced her husband Farhan Furniturewalla in 2002, after an eight-year long marriage, and admits it is tough being a single mom.

'My kids were very young when my husband and I took divorce. When I went to (comedian) Rajeev Nigam's house as part of Maa Exchange, I saw him bond with his son. At that point, I did miss the father-child bonding in my house and for a moment I felt that I need a husband now,' she said. Unfortunately, the feeling of settling down was short-lived for Pooja.

'It has been really tough being a single mother. You have to take care of the children - financially, emotionally, so you have to work hard and also spend time with them. It wasn't easy but I am proud of the way my children have shaped up - mature and well-mannered. Their scores are wonderful, the walls of their rooms are full of medals and certificates and they enjoy all sports. Most of all, they respect me and their elders. So I have no complains!' she said.

The event was the calendar launch of Gold’s Gym in Bandra, Mandira Bedi attended the event for a really short time and some observers claim that she was cautious about her movements!

The couple has not confirmed the news but sources reveal that Raj and Mandira are all set to become parents and since it is only the first trimester they have not spoken publicly about it.

Salman Khan act in Mr. India 2

Salman Khan act in Mr. India 2His rival Shahrukh Khan has done it in quite a few films- be it ‘Darr’, ‘Anjaam’, ‘Baazigar’ or ‘Duplicate’. SRK has convincingly played the villainous role in the above-mentioned films in his career. And now it appears that it is his arch adversary Salman Khan who is gearing up to get under the garbs of a dreaded villain.

There have been sufficient talks and reports about the making of Mr. India 2- the sequel to the hit film from the 80s. However, nothing has yet materialized as the film is still to go on floors. A miffed Anil Kapoor (who was the lead actor in Mr. India) has also vented his disappointment and his anger at brother Boney Kapoor for not giving the green signal to the sequel.But now it seems that things are silently falling into place and the film may pretty soon go on floors. Reports are once again doing the rounds that Salman has been finalized to play the negative character in the sequel (it was late actor Amrish Puri who had immortalized Mogambo in the original).

The lead actors would be played by Anil Kapoor and Sridevi. Salman’s Dabangg character had shades of grey in it. And it seems that his Dabangg success has injected confidence on the producers to cast him as the bad man. Let’s see how things turn out eventually…….

Amrita Rao's unusual brainstorms

Amrita Rao's unusual brainstormsSo, you thought the sweet Ms. Amrita Rao was an innocent, girl-next-door, huh? Well, what we're going to tell you now will make you rethink.

This gal has gone from sweet, to bold, to kinky. Yeah, believe it or not...she revealed it all. Recently, while talking to zoOm about her next film with the Barjatyas, she said that the film was kinky.

Of course, our jaw dropped with shock, and we asked Amrita what was so kinky about the film? She quickly explained, "It's a sweet, cute story." Hmnnn...we can't say the same thing about your faux pas, gal.

We think the Barjatyas - known for their traditional family dramas - are already getting a panic attack on reading this. And her co-star, the sweet Tusshar Kapoor, must be wondering if was a better idea to go mute for a role, than romance the lovely Ms.Rao on-screen.

Well, we know sex sells, but kinky...we're not so sure yet, gal. And we do like you looking cute, sexy and hmnn....don't worry, we aren't getting kinky ideas already. Lol!

Aishwarya Rai remains rehearsed with viral influenza

Aishwarya clarifies that though she was really unwell, she went to Singapore for the award night in advance and never threw any tantrums.

Aishwarya Rai remains rehearsed with viral influenza

Recently there were media reports claiming that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan threw tantrums at an award function in Singapore.

However the actress has refuted these reports and issued a clarification statement mentioning that though she was really unwell, she went to Singapore for the award night in advance and she never even mentioned a change or suggested otherwise than what was planned by the organizers, putting the award first and her personal comfort later. She went for her rehearsal late at night when all had finished with their respective rehearsals. At the rehearsal she insisted with the choreographer to send back the dance troupe as they had been rehearsing all day and used the services of two of the choreographer's assistants to do a run through and basically saw her whole act performed by them.

The next day her scheduled rehearsals timing was changed on the last moment, hence she did not get a slot to rehearse on stage and stayed back and practiced in her room with a dancer, so disrupting anyone's schedule was just out of question. She walked the red carpet because the organizers requested her presence on the red carpet as the international media was eagerly awaiting her. Further she went onto to perform her act.

Bunty Walia, MD of GS Entertainment that manages Aishwarya's stage shows says, "Inspite of being unwell with a viral flu Aishwarya did her rehearsals as scheduled in Singapore and fulfilled all her professional commitments". Shirin Morani, the one in touch with Aishwarya for her rehearsals, adds, "She gave no stress to us at all. She came to rehearsals on the time given to her by us and even though she wanted more time to rehearse she could not because of the others rehearsals that were going on. She was very cooperative and she went out of her way to understand and accommodate all requests".

Deepika have no date for Rajinikanth

Though overwhelmed with the offer of a film opposite the South superstar, the actress has no dates to give the film's producers as of now After making her debut with SRK and working with all the top actors in Bollywood, Deepika Padukone is headed to conquer the South. She has now been offered a film opposite none other than superstar Rajnikanth.

Deepika Padukone & Rajnikanth act together

Deepika had a meeting with the makers of this film last week and she loved the script. Deepika, who happens to be a huge fan of Rajnikanth's, finds herself in a big dilemma though: her date diaries are saturated.

She is now trying to figure out how to commit to this film. Apparently, the actress is extremely keen on working with him, despite her choc-a-bloc schedule. Source said, "Deepika has been offered the film and a meeting with its producers also went off well. The film has Rajnikanth in a double role. The makers felt that Deepika was perfect for the lead role and that she would fit the character very well.

Unfortunately, the producers of the film want to take it on floors this year and Deepika has her hands full with Aarakshan, Desi Boys and a new film with Saif Ali khan to be directed by Homi Adajania apart from a few other projects.

Now she is trying hard to adjust her dates so she doesn't miss out on a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with Rajnikanth." When contacted, Deepika Padukone said, "I am really honoured to be approached to act with Rajnikanth."

The actress's spokesperson however was quick to add, "We have been approached but it is too early to talk about it. We need to work on dates as many films are in combination with a lot of senior actors. It is not an easy decision. Of course we would like to be part of Rajnikanth's film. It is a huge honour."Of course, refusing Rajnikanth has its own consequences. Just kidding, Deepika!

People like Ranbir prove it. This year we have 25 stars walking the ramp for us. So our film industry's participation is growing." she added.

And Bollywood certainly enjoyed walking the ramp for a good cause. Neha Dhupia posted on her Twitter page, "Was a fun evening, walked the ramp for Shabana Azmi's charity, mijwan... Glad we could collectively and fashionably make a difference!"

"In Mijwan we run a school, a college, a computer center and sewing and chikankari centre. The work they do is so stunning that Anita Dongre has been giving them work. Now Manish Malhotra is also giving them work. The ramp show will create awareness of their fine craft.

"Someone said about the embroidery work of my girls in Mijwan, ‘So beautiful is their needlework that butterflies would be tempted to sit on them.' Because their work has to do with the garments and embroidery this fashion show makes a lot of sense."

Veena Malik: No to Bollywood B or C grade motion pictures

Veena Malik: No to Bollywood B or C grade motion picturesVeena Malik, Pakistani star has created quite an image for herself in India after participating in reality show, Big Boss 4. This even led to the extent of her being threatened by Pak fundamental groups for violating their country’s norms and bringing a bad name to the country.

However all her negative publicity seems to have fetched her in focus instead of damaging her popularity, so much so that now she has even started keeping quite high hopes with Bollywood and does not want any B or C grade movie offers coming to her! This sudden up-gradation might be a result of maintaining Ashmit Patel’s company, who himself seems to have disappeared from Bollywood’s face only showing himself on Big Boss 4.

Veena did not just stop here, she has even prepared a list of contestants whom she wants to refer for Pakistan’s version of Big Boss. A few among them are namely, Pervez Musharraf, Shiv Sena leader, Aishwarya Rai, Meera Nargis, Britney Spears, Jamsheed Dasti, Sheikh Rashid and Maulana Fazlur Rehman. Her choice of contestants has managed to take everyone by surprise.

And among her inmates in Big Boss 4 she also wants Dolly Bindra to be a part of the Pakistani version! But the question that is haunting everyone’s mind is, will Pakistan ever host such a show? In case it does, will Veena’s dream participation of people from every sphere come true ?

Salman Khan vs. John Abraham

Salman Khan vs. John AbrahamIt’s now Salman Khan vs. John Abraham. Salman Khan and John Abraham have never seen eye to eye. There is a cold war between both the Bollywood actors and the reason is John’s next coming Force’s posters. Poster of Force, a remake of the southern flick Kaakha Kaakha looks similar to Salman’s Wanted. John has the same look and attitude as Salman in the poster, and it seems there will now be more issues brewing between the two.

Hrithik & Priyanka’s Intimacy in ‘Agneepath’

Unprecedented sparks are going to fly between Priyanka Chopra and Hrithik Roshan in ‘Agneepath’ and its producer Karan Johar says the two have not got so intense with anyone before.

‘The new ‘Agneepath’ is first and foremost an intense love story. There was love between Priyanka and Hrithik in ‘Krissh’. But here we want an unparalleled intensity between them. You’ve never seen Priyanka and Hrithik get so intense with anyone before,’ said Karan Johar who is producing the film.

The camaraderie between Hrithik and Priyanka is so palpable that Karan Johar gets a sense of deja vu. As a child on his father Yash Johar’s sets of ‘Agneepath’ in 1990 Amitabh Bachchan and Madhavi shared the same vibes as Priyanka and Hrithik.

‘All I can tell you at the moment is that Priyanka is not playing a nurse like Madhavi in the original and she is not playing a prostitute either. Yes, we’ve built on the original relationship between Amit uncle and Madhaviji,’ he added.

Directed by Mukul. S. Anand, the original ‘Agneepath’ was produced by Karan’s late father Yash Johar and Amitabh had won the National Awards for his performance in it.

‘Hrithik and Priyanka don’t believe in half-measures. If they’ve to convey intense feelings and passion they will go the whole hog in ‘Agneepath’. If in ‘Krissh’ they romanced innocently keeping the kids in mind, their togetherness in ‘Agneepath’ will be for adults only.

Karan was just a teenager when his father had produced the original ‘Agneepath’. He still remembers the fantastic rapport between Mr. Bachchan and Madhavi. That relationship, Karan and his ‘Agneepath’ remake’s director Karan Malhotra felt, needed to be developed.

‘The Hrithik-Priyanka bonding in the new ‘Agneepath’ will build on the relationship that Karan had seen between Mr. Bachchan and Madhavi in the original ‘Agneepath’.

Aamir Khan's movie Dhobi Ghat review

Aamir Khan's movie reviews of 'Dhobi Ghat'With simultaneous premieres today in India and the U.S., “Mumbai Diaries” (“Dhobi Ghat”) is screening at the Balboa Theater in The City. Gary Meyer, owner of the Balboa and co-director of the Telluride Film Festival, made special efforts to secure the film — originally scheduled only in specialized theaters catering to Indian audiences — for his venue.

Meyer, the Toronto Film Festival and critics there all hailed “Mumbai Diaries,” with good reason. It is a fascinating portrait of four people, all contemporary and very different, in the massive Indian city, set against the background of a place emerging into modern times.

Director-actor Aamir Khan (“Lagaan”) produced and stars in “Mumbai Diaries,” and his wife, Kiran Rao, wrote and directed the film. Khan plays Arun, a gifted, difficult painter who has a one-night stand with a thoroughly Americanized banker, Shai, played by singer Monica Dogra. (Do you remember only recently when Indian films still forbade an innocent kiss? Times are changing.)

Prateik Babbar makes a deep impression as Munna, a young and handsome laundry boy (dhobi) who has a hopeless crush on Shai, who extends a class-defying and confusing friendship to him.

The fourth principal is Yasmin (Kriti Mahotra, attractive in an old-fashioned way, in contrast to Dogra’s modernity), who appears only on a video tape found by Arun when the painter moves into a new house.

The freshman director does an outstanding job maintaining a cohesive, compelling story even while the characters come and go in the tumultuous city. “Mumbai Diaries” is one of those rare films with believable characters viewers really care about.

The movie’s open-ended, ambiguous conclusion is exactly right in bridging the gap between the fiction in the dark theater and the bright light of real life outside.

Lara Dutta with her husband in Koffee With Karan

Lara Dutta with her husband join Koffee With KaranThere is something about Koffee and its aroma that entices the celeb guests to speak their heart out. Karan Johar, an expert in brewing that Koffee, had a candid tete-a-tete with Lara Dutta and her fiancĂ©, ace Tennis player Mahesh Bhupathi, for his show Koffee With Karan. This was the couple’s first appearance on a TV show.

So, what was the highlight of the episode? The chemistry between the couple and the revelation that a serious-looking guy like Mahesh can also crack jokes. The high point of the episode was when Mahesh tells Karan that he calls Lara a “serial killer” as the lady had done quite a few romantic scenes in her films. Lara was taken aback but was quick to rejoin that this title belongs exclusively to Emraan Hashmi.

The couple talked openly about their relationship and how they are completely smitten with each other. The couple also declared their splendid marriage plans on the show. They are going to have a Christian wedding.

Lara also revealed that when she first went to see Mahesh playing an international tennis match, she hoped to stay unnoticed in the crowd. But it turned out that Mahesh, despite being busy in the game, came to know of her presence.

Katrina Kaif: What makes her the most desirable lady?

Aishwarya Rai, Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Kareena Kapoor there is no dearth of beautiful belles in our very own tinsel villa. Yet it is actress Katrina Kaif who has topped the poll of most desirable lady of 2010. So, what exactly makes her the most desirable? Let’s check out:

Katrina Kaif: What makes her the most desirable lady?

Katrina has a very attractive figure. She is slim and trim with a very pallid complexion that always makes Indian men go weak on their knees. She is smoulderingly hot and has a vanilla skin that makes men dash to the theaters just to watch her. Perhaps that’s what explains why most of her films have been hit.

Plus, Katrina comes with the tag of being the foreign lass. Indian men have a great fascination for western beauties and Katrina’s upbringing was from the west. Katrina also possesses some great body features.

For instance, she has been earlier credited with having the most kissable lips. And even though she may not be as bustier as some of her other Bollywood contemporaries, she has always been in the news for her off screen romance with Salman and now with Ranbir. Her dazzling screen presence, shimmering tresses and body and her disarming smile makes her the most desirable and the one for whom most men lust for these days.

Priyanka Chopra's tenant cheated her

Priyanka Chopra's inhabitant busy for cheatingActress Priyanka Chopra may be reigning as one of the queens of Bollywood but her status could not deter her tenant, Rakesh Kapoor, from not just refusing to vacate her house but also allegedly resorting to forgery.

Confirming the complaint, additional commissioner of police Amitabh Gupta said, “A case has been registered at the Oshiwara police station and the anticipatory bail application of the accused is due to be heard on January 25 in the sessions court.”According to the Oshiwara police, as per the FIR registered with them, Kapoor has allegedly forged certain documents pertaining to the agreement made between him and Chopra for tenancy as well as sale of the flat.

Deputy commissioner of police KMM Prasanna said, “A case number 534/10 has been registered under sections 465 (punishment for forgery), 467 (forgery of valuable security, will etc), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating), 474 (intending to use forged documents as genuine) and 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property) of IPC on December 20, 2010.”

The police said that Kapoor has been staying at Chopra’s flat in a plush building — Oberoi Sky Gardens — in Andheri, jointly registered in her mother’s name.

Kapoor has been staying there for the last couple of years. On December 31, the agreement between Kapoor and the actor was due to expire and hence the latter sent him a notice to vacant the flat one month in advance as per the agreement.

“Just when Kapoor received the notice through the actor, he furnished some documents that stated that Priyanka is bound to extend the agreement with him at any cost. The documents also stated that in case if she intends to sell her flat in future, the first preference should be given to Kapoor and the offer could be extended to someone else only if he refuses to buy,” said an officer from the Oshiwara police station.

Following the incident, the actress’s father Dr Ashok Chopra, who holds the power of attorney on behalf of Priyanka, registered a complaint with the police. “It was found during the course of investigation that Kapoor had reportedly forged the signatures. Consequently, he was booked on charges of forgery and cheating,” the officer said. When contacted Dr Chopra, he refused to divulge any details. “The matter is sub-judice and it would not be right to make any comments at this stage,” he said.

Amitabh Bachchan no longer IIFA brand ambassador

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who has been the brand ambassador of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Awards since their inception in 2000, will no longer perform the role – and the concept itself has been dropped.

‘Due to unexplainable reasons, after announcing the event, Mr. Bachchan couldn’t participate in the IIFA Weekend in Sri Lanka last year. Following this, IIFA aborted the concept of a Brand Ambassador,’ Sabbas Joseph, director, Wizcraft entertainment that organizes the event, said in a statement.

‘Keeping in mind the huge respect that Wizcraft and IIFA have for Mr. Bachchan and the deep relationship that we’ve always shared, we are not having anyone replace Mr. Bachchan.

‘The Bachchan family has been an intrinsic part of IIFA every year, and in this regard we have already shared with them a proposal about their participation this year too. Mr Bachchan’s reason for non-participation is best known to him. IIFA and Mr.Bachchan are inseparable. We will continue to pursue his participation for this year too,’ Joseph said.

However, there could be more to this than meets the eye as Amitabh confirmed the parting of ways on his Twitter account but put the onus on the IIFA.

‘Not coming to Toronto IIFA…IIFA says my services are not required,’ he Tweeted.

Shahrukh Khan eyeing worldwide gathering with 'Don 2'?

Shahrukh Khan eyeing worldwide gathering with 'Don 2'?Shah Rukh Khan's two action-oriented super-slick movies -- " Ra.One" and " Don 2" -- will release globally within a week of one another in December. Apparently there are plans to put together an international version of Farhan Akhtar's ferocious and flamboyant flick so that SRK can come face to face with Tom Cruise's " Mission Impossible 4".

And to prove how global in execution "Don 2" is, here's the thing. A car chase sequence featuring Shah Rukh shot in Berlin last month was so steep and dangerous it damaged one of the expensive cameras that had been requisitioned to capture the heart-in-the-mouth stunt. Luckily no one was hurt.

"While in the first part, Don wanted to take over the crime syndicate in India, in 'Don 2' the Don wants to capture the entire European market. Shah Rukh's character is no longer an Indian crime lord wanted in 11 countries. He is portrayed as a European gangster, replete with all the trappings of an international kingpin," said a source.

The magnitude of the character's power and the external trappings of his prosperity have been captured in "Don 2" by deploying a budget that leaves behind all other Indian films on international crime.

To play the European kingpin, Farhan and Shah Rukh apparently studied the lives and lifestyles of various international crime lords.

"It was one thing for Shah Rukh to portray the Indian don wanted in 11 countries. In 'Don 2', his character wants to rule Europe. Shah Rukh's clothes, cars, girls, gadgets, body language and perfume had to convey a global aura," said a source.

"Don 2" is said to be assembled on an international scale. And there would probably be a full-scale international version of the film for an NRI global market with the songs eliminated and the drama reduced.

Veteran actor Om Puri, who reprises his role of the police inspector from the first part, admits everything in "Don 2" is up-scaled.

"I can't tell you the plot. But I will reveal one thing. In a lift together, just when my character tells Priyanka Chopra he is going to retire, the lift door opens and my character stands face to face with Don. That's when my dreams of leaving the police force ends and the chase begins."

Om says most of his scenes in "Don 2" are with Priyanka.

"Mine is not a lengthy role. But it's an important role. I wasn't part of the chase sequence that you mention. But yes, it was unlike anything seen in Hindi films. And yes, a camera did get damaged. But no one got hurt."

The actor is all praise for Farhan and his unit.

"Unlike other Bollywood locations on a foreign location, the stars and the crew were not put up in separate hotels. All of us including the technical crew and junior artistes stayed in the same hotel in Berlin, though the unit members, unlike the stars, had to share rooms. I've hardly ever worked with a more professional efficient and hospitable unit.

"Every detail in Berlin was looked into in advance and there were no last-minute glitches. The entire schedule of about a month went off smoothly," said Om Puri.
