Tena Desae faints during shoot

While shooting on the high seas, a sick Tena Desae blacked out

Sometimes it is best to take the bull by its horns. Tena Desae did the same but flunked miserably. The actress who has seasickness was required to shoot in the middle of an ocean in Fiji. She did manage to give a few shots but ultimately passed out.

A source from the sets says, Tena and her co-star Rajeev Khandelwal had a sequence on a boat. Unfortunately the water was very choppy that day. And not a lot of people knew of Tena's discomfort. About 20 minutes into her scenes, Tena started throwing up. The crewmembers were far out into the sea. Finally, after much gagging and feeling giddy, she blacked out.
The unit took her back to the shore where she was given first aid, adds the source. Tena says, It was the first shot of the day and I was doing absolutely fine. But half an hour into the shoot, the seasickness hit me hard. I had to ignore all of that and carry on with my work.

Has Ranbir turned into a party animal?

After a night of revelry, Ranbir Kapoor turned up late at a cancer awareness event on Christmas morning bearing telltale signs

While most Bollywood stars try their very best to look picture perfect at every public outing, looks like Ranbir Kapoor can't care less. Or why else would he turn up at an event on Christmas day, to spend time with cancer-affected kids, looking like he had arrived straight from bed?

Our sources say that RK not only turned up looking sleep-deprived at the cancer hospital in town, he also seemed unkempt in his very modest track pants and ganji. He arrived much later than the scheduled time and industry insiders say that a high-profile bash the previous night could be blamed for Ranbir's sloppiness.

A source from the event says, Everyone including the kids who have been suffering from cancer waited with bated breath for the actor to arrive at 9.30 am. However, by the time Ranbir walked in it was already past 11 am. He was dressed in track pants, ganji and a jacket and looked totally out of place.

The actor, who is otherwise known to be quite jaunty, apparently hardly exchanged words with the media and the assembled kids. For Ranbir, the morning would have been a far cry from the previous night of revelry at industrialist Sunny and Anu Dewan's glitzy party in Bandra.

The source adds, Ranbir had come to the bash around 2.15 am and after some pretty serious partying he left at 5 am the following morning. Onlookers say RK seemed to be in very high spirits as he exited the event. Could he have forgotten about his next day's engagement altogether?
The actor not only kept the kids waiting at the event, other dignitaries like the Commissioner of Police of Mumbai, Satyapal Singh, and Commissioner of Police of Thane, K P Raghuvanshi also had to stay back for the latecomer. Ranbir's publicist however jumps to the actor's defence, stating, Ranbir was given the time of 10.30 am to attend the event and he was barely 30 minutes late, as he was stuck in the traffic.

Have Kareena and Priyanka called a truce?

With Kareena and Priyanka seemingly bonding with each other at Imran Khan's recent party, could their long-lived acrimony have come to an end?

Most Bollywood heroines over the ages have stayed true to the adage that two actresses of the same league can never be friends. However, looks like Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra could prove it as a thing of the past. If rumours are to be believed, the two ladies could well be on their way to call for truce. But questions is, ultimately will they or won't they?

Both PC and Bebo have often engaged in a war of words, whether be it in front of the media and even telly chat shows. They have been at loggerheads about not just their professional lives but also their personal lives. The two have apparently even shared boyfriends (read Shahid Kapoor).
However, a source present at Imran Khan's recent housewarming party, where both Kareena and Priyanka were invited, states that the two apparently shared a very warm conversation on the floor.

The source says, Everyone present in the room was surprised to see Kareena and Priyanka talking non-stop with each other. They were in each other's company for more than an hour and had even taken a corner of the house to themselves.

They kept on giggling and laughing throughout. Apparently, there was no other person who was part of their conversation. They just came face to face and started talking,` adds the source. What remains to be seen is if their newfound friendship will carry over to the next year as well. Let's wait and watch.
Past imperfect
Kareena and Priyanka have not exactly been the best of friends for a long time. A sneak-peek into their colourful history together...

2007: The two worked in Aitraaz together, post which they heaped praises on each other at every media interaction possible.

December 2007: Kareena took a dig at Priyanka by stating that she did not consider any of her contemporaries to be 'actresses' except Rani Mukerji. Priyanka issued a dignified response saying, "Bebo is a more senior and hopefully more mature actress than me. December 2010: Kareena, once again, ridiculed Priyanka on Koffee With Karan for her accent, prompting PC to comment on Bebo's then-beau, now hubby Saif Ali Khan's accent as well.
January 2011: There were some signs of a patch-up during an event for the Mumbai police. During her performance, Priyanka roped in Shah Rukh Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena on the stage to jive along with her.

September 2012: Even during the promotions of Kareena's Heroine, the two actresses made sarcastic comments about the fates of the other's films at the box office and award events.

Ayushmann doubles up as AD for Shoojit Sircar

Ayushmann Khurrana had to fly down to Kochi to work as Shoojit Sircar's AD for 10 days. Know why...

No one knows it better than John Abraham and Shoojit Sircar to hold a man to his words. So much so that more than a year after Ayushmann Khurrana offered to double up as an AD for them, the two called forth for his services on the sets of their upcoming film.

And it all started when Ayushmann landed late on the sets of their first film together, Vicky Donor. A source says, He was late for two consecutive days. Ayushmann also doubled up as the fourth AD on the sets, taking care of the props. He told Shoojit that if his career as an actor didn't work out, he could become his assistant.
While Shoojit and John were shooting in Kochi for their next film, they called Ayushmann as a joke and reminded him about his promise.

The source adds, Ayushmann took the next flight out to Kerala and became Shoojit's AD for the next 10 days. The actor says, It was a lot of fun and there was a lot to learn. No one was treating me as an AD. They were pampering me like they would look after an actor.

Speaking about Rekha, Indra Kumar said "The first person that came to my mind was Rekhaji. When I narrated the script to her, she agreed immediately. My film is about women empowerment and she has always projected that image.

She had no reservations about playing a grandmother because her role is a lot of fun. I'm hoping to learn a thing or two from her. It is great fun working with Sharman as well." The first schedule of the movie went on floors on December 12 and will be completed with a two-month schedule in Mumbai.

Imran follows the footsteps of uncle Aamir

Actor Imran Khan is following in the footsteps of his uncle Aamir Khan and pasting posters of his new film "Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola" on taxis. Imran recounts the similarity between his way and what Aamir once did.

"Twenty four years ago Aamir uncle pasted the posters of his film 'Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak'. I remember him telling the story that he and my mother were roaming around the by-lanes of Bandra and seeking the permission of rickshaw drivers to paste the posters of his film and telling them that he is the hero of the film," the 29-year-old said while promoting the film.

"Flash forward 24 years and I find myself doing the same thing. Actually in our city public transport is the most important thing whether it is rickshaw, taxis or buses, it has always been the lifeline of the city. I think it is the easiest way to communicate and reach out to the people," he added.
Directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, "Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola" also features Anushka Sharma, Pankaj Kapur and Shabana Azmi. It hits theatres Jan 11.

Why Ranbir want to Dance with Varun?

Actor Ranbir Kapoor, who did an item song in children's film "Chillar Party", would love to something like that again but this time he wants newbie Varun Dhawan to shake a leg with him.

"If it is for a good cause then of course, 100 percent. This time I would like to have Varun with me because he dances really well. He is a good soul and I think he will do it with all his heart," the 30-year-old said here Tuesday celebrating Christmas with kids suffering from cancer.

Asked about his plans for the new year, Ranbir, who is busy shooting for "Besharam", said, "I am shooting for the film."
Directed by Abhinav Kashyap, "Besharam" also features Indo-Australian actress Pallavi Sharda in the female lead.

Ranbir was last seen in "Barfi!" in the role of a deaf-mute boy.

Sherlyn lights a candle for Delhi rape victim

'16th December, 2012', a date that will live in infamy in Indian history as a 23-year old medical student was gang-raped, assaulted and thrown out of a moving bus. This horrendous incident has taken the country by storm, and International Celebrity and Actress Sherlyn Chopra extended her support to the victim by lighting a candle and saying a little prayer for her on Christmas.

I am deeply saddened by what happened to the victim in Delhi, I am hoping for a miraculous recovery for the brave young girl. I also wish that her family has the courage to sail through the tough times, expressed Sherlyn.

Sherlyn has decided not to celebrate Christmas this year, and the actress shared, I decided to wear black as a mark of protest against the absence of humanity and justice. I condemn the unlawful use of force and the way the non-violent protestors were manhandled at India Gate.

Sherlyn has created quite a movement by making her followers consciousabout the situation on social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.
Women safety should be on top priority according to Sherlyn and she has a few suggestions, Security should be tightened for public transport services and the government should be in a proactive rather than reactive mode.

Sherlyn continues to pray for the girl along with rest of the nation and is hoping that an incident like this is dealt with severity.

Next Eid, Salman will be an Army officer

Though Salman Khan is tied up with his forthcoming film, it is a work in progress for his next project that is slated to release in August 2013 around Eid time

Directed by Sohail Khan, the film is a remake of A R Murugadoss's 2006 Telugu film Stalin starring Chiranjeevi and Trisha. The film rolls in January and Sallu will reprise Chiranjeevi's role of an army officer.
Buzz is that Sallu and his family will usher in the New Year in Dubai. The Khan-daan for the past two years have been celebrating the turn of the year in the desert emirate.

Guess they have lots to celebrate after Dabangg 2's box office collections.

A woman is free to choose her attire: Deepika

Deepika Padukone is perturbed by the recent attacks on women. She feels a woman can dress the way she wants

Women are constantly blamed for the way they dress. It is high time that we do something about stopping such crimes. The rules and the laws should become a lot more strict and action needs to be taken and faster.

Revamp women's rights: Priyanka

Sharing the nation's outrage over the gang-rape case in Delhi, actress Priyanka Chopra favoured a re-look into women's rights in the country while rejecting criticism that Bollywood only pays lip service to such causes

'What happened is a heinous crime. I call for stringent punishment for the accused, but I also want the protests to be peaceful. The youth has come together for the first time. I want a re-look at women's rights in this country,' she said.

'We live in a male-dominated society, but the attitude towards girls should change. They should be valued as much as boys,' Priyanka added. The 30-year-old actress said that it is not fair to take aim at film personalities for championing causes in spirit only.

She feels Bollywood stars are equally committed to the causes even though they are not often present in the heart of things. 'Why is Bollywood targeted always for not being there? We have our work commitments due to which we might not be at the venue of protests, but that doesn't mean we are not committed to the issue.

We have also been debating about it. 'I don't understand why Bollywood is questioned just because it is famous,' said Priyanka, who was in the Capital today to launch UNICEF's dare to care campaign alongwith cricketer Irfan Pathan. Pathan, who was representing IPL team Delhi Daredevils at the event, said, 'My sympathy goes to the victim and I hope and pray she overcomes this battle.

This incident is an inhuman act and a real shame. It's gruesome and I would like to see that such incidents never happen again, ever.' Talking about the demand for capital punishment for the accused, he added, 'Strict punishment should be meted out to them. The government should ensure that swift justice is meted out to the culprits.'
The UNICEF campaign launch coincided with the nationwide rage against the incident that has rocked the Capital. 'It is a coincidence that this campaign is being launched at this time. The dare to care campaign is for adolescent girls who drop out of schools and do not complete their education,' said Priyanka. 

Catch, A spanking new Brand SRK!

Shah Rukh Khan seems to be setting his house in order for 2013

It appears that Shah Rukh Khan is keen to rebuild Brand SRK in the New Year. The turn of the year seems to be heralding a spanking new image for King Khan. The star apparently wants to let bygones be bygones and usher 2013 on a new footing.

There were indications that the scenario was changing for quite a while. And now the picture is getting clearer.

New Publicist
For starters, SRK has acquired a new publicist who has been filling our in-boxes with updates about the star from his trip to the Marrakech film festival to his reaping accolades at a recent film awards show. There are snapshots along with a brief of what he has been up to. This definitely came as a surprise but it looks like there is a need to streamline and provide info about him.

Moving Camps
B-Town has this penchant to work in camps. But SRK broke the rules when he agreed to work with Katrina Kaif, the ex-girlfriend of his nemesis Salman Khan. His decision to act in director Rohit Shetty's film a name synonymous with Ajay Devgn another bete noire of SRK, too proves that professionally his brand wants to work with the big names in the industry.

Moving On
Karan Johar, of late, has been bonding with the other Khan big time. With whispers about SRK and his best buddy KJo's bonding not exactly being the way it was, King Khan seems to be forging new bonds.
The year that was 2012 began on a sticky situation when he had an alleged altercation with director Shirish Kunder at Sanjay Dutt's bash for Agneepath in January-end. In May came his infamous squabble with the security officials at the Wankhede Stadium. Then there was also buzz about his extra close bonding with Priyanka Chopra. 

Five best things that happened to Anushka in 2012

The year is coming to an end and actress Anushka Sharma, known as a spontaneous and natural performer in Bollywood, talks about the five best things that made 2012 a year to remember.

Listing them down, she told: "Buying a new house, signing Raju Hirani's film ('Peekay'), 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' release, signing more brands and changing my manager have been the highlights of the year."

Currently, the actress, who is four years old in filmdom and has hits like "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi", "Band Baaja Baaraat" and "Ladies Vs Ricky Behl" in her kitty, is eagerly waiting for her next release "Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola", in which she has teamed up with Imran Khan and seasoned actor Pankaj Kapur.
"Matru Ki..." is releasing Jan 11 and the 24-year-old is lucky to have teamed up with Vishal Bhardwaj for the film after working with big names like Yash Chopra and Aditya Chopra.

Human rights trouble for Dabangg 2

William Nicholas Gomes from Centre for Applied Human Rights in University of York (UK) has appealed to the makers of Dabangg 2 to remove the sequence where Salman Khan's character Chulbul Pandey glorifies the practice of torture by police forces. This will raise wider public support in favour of torture and ill treatment in the custody, he said which was published by Hindustan Times.

For those who are unaware of William Nicholas Gomes, He is a Human Rights Ambassador and a Bangladeshi Journalist who was accused of Woman Trafficking. According to a weekly Tabloid 'Blitz Weekly' published last year, While William Gomes was working in CARITAS, He tried to steal information from the computers in that organization, and he was sacked from CARITAS being caught red-handed while stealing information.
The article also says, According to Bangladeshi intelligence, William Gomes is a low graded publicity hunter as well as a Marxist with anti US and anti Israel commitment.

Producer Arbaaz Khan remained unavailable for comment at the time of going to press, Maybe we can guess the reasons.

Anurag says, Don't worry be Barfi!

Even with his latest movie "Barfi!" out of the Oscar race, Anurag Basu is not disappointed. He feels better films have made it to the top nine.

"It's okay. I am not disappointed. All the other films are so good, so I have no complains," Basu said on the sidelines of an event at the Tata Memorial Hospital here Tuesday.

"Barfi!" was India's official entry for the best foreign language film category at the 85th Academy Awards this year.

The film, featuring Ranbir Kapoor as a deaf and mute boy and Priyanka Chopra as an autistic girl, is no longer in the run for the award.
Of the 71 films that qualified for the Oscars from across the world, nine have been shortlisted. These will further compete to make it to the final five.

The nine films are "Amour" (Austria), "War Witch" (Canada), "No" (Chile), "A Royal Affair" (Denmark), "The Intouchables" (France), "The Deep" (Iceland), "Kon-Tiki" (Norway), "Beyond the Hills" (Romania) and "Sister" (Switzerland).

The final list will be announced Jan 10.

Shahid visited Sholay shooting location

Actor Shahid Kapoor did not miss out on the chance to visit Ramgarh in Karnataka, where cult film "Sholay" was shot.

The 31-year-old was in Mysore to shoot his upcoming project "Phata Poster Nikla Hero" when he got to know that the famous shooting location is nearby.

The actor took time off after the shooting and visited the spot. He managed to wrap up the trip in eight hours time.

Directed by Rajkumar Santoshi, "Phata Poster Nikla Hero" also stars Ileana D'Cruz.

Daler to follow son's footsteps

Singer Daler Mehndi, who is launching his son Gurdeep in Bollywood with "Meri Shadi Karao", says even he harbours the dream of becoming an actor, but adds that it is a costly affair.

"I also want to become an actor but for that I need a big producer, big director," the 45-year-old said here in an interview.

He said that it won't be feasible for him to "sing four songs in my own film free of cost, give money to the producer for the (poster of the film) and go here and there to promote my film. I can't do this".

"But yes, if I am capable and if the producer or the director will come with a good story and a message, then I would definitely do it," he added.

Daler also recalls a time when he rejected a film.

"Quite long back I rejected (director) Rahul Rawail saab's 'Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi' opposite Kajol as I didn't find the story appealing. But now if something interesting comes, I will definitely do it," Daler said.

Anurag Basu in tears amid cancer patients

Filmmaker Anurag Basu, a cancer survivor, Tuesday broke down here at an event organised for children battling the disease.

"This (Tata Memorial) hospital is like a temple to me. I get choked when I come here and talk," he said.

Basu, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2004, was treated at the hospital. The "Barfi!" director went through everything with a smile, said a doctor.

"This is like my second life and I will make meaningful films now," Basu said.

Katrina most ideal wife for Salman

Actress Katrina Kaif has topped the list of perfect matches for Bollywood's famous bachelor, and her former beau, Salman Khan, according to a survey by a matrimonial site.

The survey covered 21,000 respondents, and 69.84 percent believed that Katrina, 28, would make an ideal wife for Salman, 47.
Another interesting survey around the "Dabangg" star reveals that 62 percent of Indian men don't want the actor to get married at all while 60.37 percent women want him to settle down as soon as possible.

In the survey, several fans from the south would like to see Salman's "Dabangg" co-star Sonakshi Sinha as his off-screen life partner too while north Indians won't mind seeing southern actress Asin as his better half in real life.
"Most individuals associate themselves with a celebrity at some point in their life. Through the poll, we wanted to understand how an icon's lifestyle influences people's views and choices during partner search," said Gourav Rakshit, chief operating officer of the match making portal.

Bipasha Basu says that she's in no hurry to find a boyfriend and settle down Her love life continues to remain under constant media speculation but Bipasha Basu manages to stay unruffled. Following her breakup with John Abraham last year, after nearly a decade of being together, there's been one link-up or the other involving her.

Bipasha, who recently released her second fitness video, Break Free, states she has nothing against the rumour mill. `The media loves me! They want me to settle down with a good guy, but my kind of guy is a little tough to find. I'm not saying that there aren't nice guys around.

Just that I need someone who would be glad to stand back and be proud of me as a person and the job that I do, says Bips.
So does he have to be fit and lean like she is? Not really! He just has to be confident of himself and if he happens to look like Brad Pitt, well and good. Even if he's not a fitness freak like me, I'll make sure he becomes one after a while, quips the 33 year-old. On pointing out the fact that Kareena Kapoor (32) and Vidya Balan (34) tied the knot this year, Bipasha claims to have no such ambition for next year. 

I'm glad that both of them found their soul mates. I haven't found mine yet and I'm in no hurry either. I'm living the kind of life I always wanted to - independent and fulfilling,` smiles the actress who will soon start dubbing for her upcoming supernatural film Aatma.
