Yuvraaj Spells Loss for Multiplexes

Yuvraaj after all the hype and hoopla especially around the real couple on screen turned out to be a disappointing film. Much hyped off-screen pair with their on-screen chemistry seemed dull and their performance seemed very thanda.


The film got a major thrashing from the film critics and upon that it fared below average at the box-officeIndustry trade sources tell us, “The film opened to 30-40% in all the major multiplexes on Friday but the collections actually dropped down further as Sunday came. Then on Monday it went lower to a poor 20-25%. Later, as the week progressed one saw just 30-40 people patronizing its show in most of the multiplexes. At some places even in big cities, the response dwindled so low that the multiplexes were left with no option but cancel some of Yuvvraaj’s shows.”“Salman’s last project, God Tussi Great Ho had met with almost a similar fate and it was necessary for him to deliver a hit in Yuvvraaj. But more than him it is the showman to be blamed for disappointing everybody, including Salman. It is learnt that some portions of the movie have been re-edited. But now its too late!” the source further adds.Poor Salman - We sincerely hope with Veer he delivers a hit otherwise there a lot of fresh faces who are ready to take over him. Perhaps a few tips on Aamir Khan would help

Sexual Orientation Gossip Bothers Karan Johar


Much has been said (and spoofed) about Karan Johar’s happy and ‘gay’ mannerisms. The fact that K.Jo is successful yet still single (no wife, no girlfriend) really gave people a chance to gossip about his sexual orientation.

The man has been subtly trying to get homosexuality a bit of social acceptance in a conservative country like India (read: Kantaben sequences in Kal Ho Naa Ho and now the entire movie Dostana) but obviously disguising it as light hearted humor and pun.

People have been assuming that Karan Johar is a gay and perhaps that is why he keeps getting the topic of homosexuality in his films. But K.Jo seems to be unfazed or rather irritated with the gossip, he says,“I don’t care about what people’s perceptions are. People have questioned me about my orientation often. I feel it’s nobody’s problem. There are two words, private and personal, which I haven’t put in this English language, but I know they mean something, that’s why they are attached to the word ‘life’, private life and personal life. It’s my prerogative to say “it’s not your problem; it’s none of your concern”.He’s added, “People don’t know any thing about me actually and I don’t want them to share whether I have a marriage hidden somewhere or I have a relationship that no one knows about or I don’t have anything and I am a monk in my head and I have taken an oath of celibacy.”Well Karan… obviously no one cares… we are just CURIOUS

Salman finds another Katrina duplicate


Looks like Salman Khan is on  Katrina’s duplicate spree, first Zarine and now he has found another Kat-look alike in Miss UK Lisa Lazarus and both Kat-look-a likes will be seen opposite Sallu in his upcoming movie Veer.

Lisa who is a model, is 5 feet and 10 inches tall and has a sexy figure of 32-26-36 measure. She protrays the role of an English woman who is rescued by gladiator Salman Khan on his way to a mission and eventually she falls in love with the hero.

However, producer Galani says that the casting was completely decided by him and not by Salman, he says, “Salman left the casting to us, he didn’t interfere.”

Well do you think Lisa looks like Katrina?

Don sequel canceled?


All SRK fans who were eagerly waiting for a sequel to Don are all set to be disappointed, as the lead actors of the movie don’t have time for the sequel.

Priyanka the lead actress of Don says,“I think the sequel is a little far now. I don’t think it will start soon. Everyone involved in the project is pretty busy now I think with other work.”A source reveals, “Farhan is busy with Luck By Chance in which he is acting and also with his next directorial film Voice From The Sky. So, as of now Don 2 is not starting.”“Shah Rukh too is very tied up now. He has to look after the promotions of his own production Billoo Barber, then he will do Karan Johar’s My Name is Khan and then move over to his another production Happy New Year which Farah Khan will direct. He is also busy with his animation film Ravan. He does not have time for Don 2 at the moment but yes as everyone knows Shah Rukh is ready to act in the sequel.”Well as Priyanka said, Don2 is really really far away, it might be ready in 2010 I guess.

Kareena transforms into Sarah Jessica

Kareena Kapoor.jpg

Kareena Kapoor got size hero into fashion with her dud movie Tashan and now Bebo is all set sport a new look for her next flick Kambakht Ishq, where she will be seen aping the style of Sex and The City actress Sarah Jessica Parker.Incidentally, Bebo was suggested the Parker’s look by elder sister Lolo, she reveals, “My looks in KI will be something audiences haven`t seen before. It`s completely different from ‘Tashan’, ‘Golmaal Returns’ and ‘Jab We Met’. I play a surgeon and a supermodel in ‘Kambakht Ishq’ and my styling has been done keeping my character in mind. I always discuss my roles with Lolo and when I asked her about ‘Kambakht Ishq’, she told me to get inspiration from Sarah Jessica`s Parker`s look in ‘Sex And The City’. Lolo loves watching the TV serial and Sarah`s cool, chic, glamorous and yet simple styles.”Bebo then adds, “It`s very important for an actor to keep changing his/her looks. It`s a challenge to keep experimenting with your looks according to your role as Aamir and Shah Rukh are doing. After my size-zero look in Tashan it`s a sexier, more real and natural look that I am going in for now for Kambakht Ishq and Rensil`s film”.

SRK starts filming Dulha Mil Gaya


Shah Rukh Khan has finally got some free time to shoot movie Dulha mil Gaya after almost 2 years of delaying it.A source reveals, “After such a long gap and date problems, the shoot finally resumed on Monday with Shah Rukh and the entire cast. SRK was busy with Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, and has now started shooting for DMG, which is directed by Sushmita Sen’s beau Mudassar Aziz.”

SRK is slated to shoot his guest role in 2-weeks after which he will be busy shooting for Karan Johar’s My Name is Khan.

Preity Zinta stays low


Preity Zinta insists that for film promotions she wants media to follow and write about her, but when it comes to some good cause she wants the media to stay away.

She says, “Film promotions, ad shoots, no problem. It’s about selling a film at that point.”However when she was in Delhi for a good cause, she wanted media to keep away, she says, “When you want to do something from your heart, the point of publicizing it becomes such a big deal and what you really want to do becomes second priority.”“And it started when I was doing the bravery awards campaign. I was standing on stage with all these brave people, I felt so small in front of them… and the photographers pushed them so that they could get my picture. Of course, I know that people need to know about these things, but not to the extent that it takes away from the spirit of what you’re trying to do. Not everything is about a photo-op!”Point taken pretty Preity.

Terrorized Amitabh Slept With A Gun


Amitabh Bachchan like all Mumbaikars has been glued to the TV watching the ghastly acts of terrorism unfold one by one and praying that this nightmare gets over as soon as possible. He was so terrorized that for the first time in his entire life he had to sleep with a loaded gun for safety.

He wrote on his blog,“As the events of the terrorist attack unfolded in front of me, I did something for the first time and one that I had hoped never ever to be in a situation to do. Before retiring for the night, I pulled out my licensed .32 revolver, loaded it and put it under my pillow, for a very disturbed sleep.”

All we can do is pray for the safety of all the people in and around Mumbai. Lets hope our police force and army manages to get rid of those nasty terrorists.

Ashish Chaudhry’s Sister A Hostage At Oberoi Hotel


The terror attacks have effected everyone in Mumbai, including our Bollywood stars. Although everyone is safe and sound but actor Ashish Chaudhary’s sister and her husband are held hostage by the terrorists at the Oberoi Trident Hotel of Mumbai.‘My sister Monica and her husband have been inside the hotel along with maybe 40 other hostages. They came here for dinner last night, but now they are not answering any calls,’ he told a news channel Thursday.‘My parents have been here since last night and when we last heard from them, they told us that they have seen two terrorists and have heard a lot of gun shots. I didn’t come at night fearing there will be panic, but since morning I have been standing here, waiting for them to be released,’ he added.

We sincerely hope all the 40 hostages get released safely and alive.

Dostana Rakes Gold At The Box Office


Dostana is enjoying phenomenal success while all the other releases with and after it have been down in dumps. It has collected a whooping Rs.500 million since its release and its still expected to go strong till Aditya Chopra’s film Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi hits the theatres.Trade analyst Vinod Mirani commented, “The success of ‘Dostana’ has come as reassurance to the industry that the entertainment sector will be able to brave the negative impact of the economic slowdown if the changing tastes of audiences are carefully catered to, an opportunity which Ghai’s ‘Yuvvraaj’ missed.”“Although, whether these two much-awaited films will be able to a ‘Dostana’ at the box-office is still a matter of conjecture, both have generated a lot of expectations in the industry because of their good advance reports,” Mirani said further.“Hope, both the movies come up to the expectations. Because, just as Yash Raj Films sorely needs a hit after a series of flops this year, so is the industry eager to end the year on a promising note in order to regain its confidence as all the big-budget films released during the year so far came crashing at the box-office before ‘Dostana’ arrived,” he added.

We hope so too!

Shahid gets whooping 7cr for new ad


Shahid Kapoor is in Vogue these days, not only for movies but for advertisements as well. The handsome hunk has been signed by VIP luggage for its promotional campaigns and he has already started filming the add in Goa.Shahid who last starred in ads for Clinic All Clear and Pepsi says, “Yes, I have signed on with VIP luggage. It’s true that it’s been a long time since I’ve done an ad. I take time before I sign an endorsement as I have to be completely convinced before signing one. It’s according to the brand fit. And for me, VIP luggage suits the bill very well. They are coming up with a very trendy line of luggage and I am very happy with the entire concept.”Apparently Shahid has been paid a whooping 7 crore for the advertisement.Well in these times of Global money crisis, Shahid surely is laughing all the way to bank.

Salman Needs A Hit Desperately!!


It is no doubt that Salman Khan was one of the most good looking men in India once upon a time (For some he still is). Today he is one of the most popular actors in Bollywood. He is practically a youth icon.
Salman turns 43 this December and one look at his career graph, particularly since last three years and we see that the man desperately needs a hit because after No Entry which was his last big hit, he hadn’t had a super hit film.

There was Kyunki, his next film after No Entry that bombed despite Salman’s good performance as  a mad man who had accidentally murdered his wife.

In 2006, there was Jaan-e-mann that did not do commercially well, whatever appreciation the film got was because of the fairly good music and Akshay Kumar’s wonderful performance as a nerd. Babul was a disaster, Salman was not enough a reason to draw crowds for a movie so pathetically dragging and boring.

2007, Salam-e-ishq flopped miserably but Partner managed to be a good entertainer and could be termed as an average hit. In 2008 Heroes was appreciated but wasnt a commercial success and ofcourse there is Yuvraaj which also flopped despite much hype.

Looking at his contemporaries, Aamir Khan is still going strong with his power-packed performances in his films like Rang De Basanti, Taare Zameen Par and now Ghajini which looks a lot promising. Shahrukh Khan is the most expensive star in Bollywood, and now he has also started experimenting with his roles (although half the credit of his success goes to the support from big banners ala friendship with Adi Chopra and Karan Johar), Akshay Kumar has truly proved himself the Kinng.

Amongst his age group, Sallu faces tough competition and its about time Salman brings in a little stability in his personal and professional life. We are waiting for him to deliver another Hum Aapke Hain Koun or a Tere Naam may be - We hope Veer brings him some smiles with box office success.

Perhaps a little sensible film selection would go a long way in helping him keep up with the competition.

Katrina Kaif proves her critics wrong


Five years in the Bollywood industry and Katrina Kaif has finally arrived as an actress after her wonderful performance in Yuvraaj.Katrina reveals how she overcame her weakness, her language to conquer Bollywood,she says, “When I started, people were not only writing me off for my strong British accent, there were many others who tried to prevent me from making it till here. They didn’t do so in an aggressive or excessive manner, but they used to say things like ‘I don’t know…’ and ‘I’m not sure…’ that would  suggest a not-so-positive approach towards me. But I proved myself ultimately.She explains, “I always try and push myself to exceed expectations. I use this ideology in a positive way.”Katrina also reveals how she always believed in herself and her destiny, she says, “The great thing about life is that you never know what can happen and there’s no limitation to it. Someone can tell you that you can never be this and never be that. It’s not true. Anyone can be what he wants to be and destiny plays a major part in it. God has of course been very kind to me.”“I believe that everyone should try and live their dreams, follow them and they might just come true someday,” Katrina said.

Aishwarya Rai on economic crisis


Aishwarya Rai on the recent event for the launch of Longines, talked about recession and how to get out of the global economic crisis.The beautiful actress said, “We all are citizens of this country and recession will touch everyone’s life. However, I cannot speak about the entire film industry. All I know is the word ‘management’ is of prime importance. It’s about managing and not questioning how do I manage things. Taking more than you can chew will only create chaos. Yes I am leading a hectic lifestyle for a while but I believe in taking only as much as you can effectively give. If I am internally happy it shows. I have never deliberately tried to show how happy I am.”Well no wonder she was crowned Miss World.:)

Zayed Khan surprises wife by kissing co-star


Zayed Khan apparently his his debut kiss ka kissa from his wifey and until she saw it at the premiere.

Zayed Khan kissed for the very first time for the camera for Yuvraaj and had a passionate smooching scene with Aimee Maghera.Zayed says, “Firstly I’ve never done intimate scenes like these on screen. I’m a family man with a wife and son. And to watch the scenes with my parents at the premiere gave me the shivers. What would they think? On top of it all it was our marriage anniversary. What a gift for my wife!”

Apparently Zayed was quite apprehensive about the intimate scene, but it was Ghai’s first time too, as he had never shot a kissing scene before, he was adamant that Zayed give it his best shot.Zayed adds, “My lips are sealed, and not just for the kissing-let me tell you very explicitly. But yes, some of the scenes did have me worried. This was my first screen kiss. And I do have a very laadla beta image among the audience. What would the mothers in the audience think? I wondered! I hadn’t even told my wife about the kissing in Yuvvraaj. I wanted to surprise her on the premiere night.”

I am sure most Bollywood wifes dont want such type of surprises.

Aamir Khan - Devil Inside


Aamir Khan turns devil in his next Konal Kohli’s flick. Aamir Khan who did Kunal’s Fanaa will be seen playing the role of a devil.A source reveals, “Kunal has got some money from Reliance for a 3 film deal. One of these films will be with Aamir Khan and is about the Devil who takes human form and falls in love. Aamir is eager to play the role of the devil and is already preparing for it.”

Well I wonder what preparation Aamir is doing for this role.. Growing his teeth?

Deepika Padukone: Female Akshay Kumar


Deepika Padukone from playing a regular belle on the big screen has transformed into an action queen for her upcoming flick Chandni Chowk to China also starring Akshay Kumar.

The leggy lass is all praises for herself for doing some death defying stunts in the movie.She says, “I’m sure I have gone through a lot of death defying action in the film. But I was prepared for it when I signed the film.”

Deepika also revealed that it was Khiladi man Akshay Kumar who taught her many of the stunts.She adds, “Akshay taught me lots of action. He said that action is like dancing so you have to be very graceful while doing it. I like to believe that main next female Akshay Kumkar hoon (I’m the nest female Akshay Kumar).”Well try to laugh like Akki, Deepika and we would definitely believe you, till then…you dont qualify.

Vivek seeks Salman’s forgiveness


Vivek Oberoi is desperate to seek Salman Khan’s forgiveness and is at it again by bombarding Salman with text messages.A source says, “Vivek tried every gimmick in the book to win Sallu over for four years since their spat. From sending him feelers through text messages to publicly apologising to the actor at an award show, Vivek has done it all. Though many believe they’re all publicity stunts, the actor has maintained he wants to express his regrets and move on in life.”The source adds, “The latest so-called stunt was when Vivek thought he could call Sallu for his sister’s wedding. Although the wedding was made out to be a very personal event, a select bunch from the industry was also invited. Extending an invitation to Sallu came as a big surprise. As soon as Vivek came to know Khan was in town he sent him a long emotional message telling him that it would mean a lot if he came for the wedding. Khan didn’t feel the need to even reply to his message. After a day passed, Vivek started to send Sallu a couple of messages and at one point, even tried to call him. Sallu ignored him but finally ended up sending Vivek a stinker of a message.”

Well do you think after all that Aishwarya Rai ruckus, should Salman forgive Vivek and move on?

Hrithik Roshan smooches Barbara Mori


Hrithik Roshan has dared and bared again after Dhoom2 in his upcoming flick Kites, he does death defying stunts and smooches his co-star Barbara Mori with utmost ease.

Apparently Hrithik Roshan in a stunt had to kiss his co-star Barabara Mori on cheek, but later it was turned into a smooch.Hrithik confirms saying , “We were both supposed to jump off from a rooftop at an impossible height. Before we did so director Anurag Basu suggested that I kiss Barbara since we were doing something death-defying and dangerous.I kissed her on her cheek to which she turned around to ask, ‘Given the same situation with your wife Susanne would you kiss her on the cheek?’ I was floored by her logic. The scene was reshot and I kissed her the way real-life couples would in the situation.”Then Hrithik adds, “Is kissing such a big deal? Hasn’t our cinema grown up? There are kissing scenes in Kites but nothing to make me squirm. I’d be more than happy watching those scenes with my wife, son and parents.”Hrithik also revealed the importance of the smooch in the movie, he says, “Kites is a love story about people in love. How do people in love express their feelings? Barbara made me realize how silly we look on screen while shying away from expressing love naturally.”

Well lets see if Hrithik manages to stir some controversy with this kiss like his previous kiss.

Adi Hosted a Special Screening of Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi

rab ne bana di jodi1.jpg

Aditya Chopra, who has been famous for keeping his ventures under wraps till the date of release has made an exception for his latest directorial venture Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi (starring Shahrukh Khan and newcomer Anushka Sharma).A source who attended the private screening of the movie revealed, “Adi held a special screening of RNBDJ on Sunday November 23rd evening at his Yash Raj studio preview theatre. It was attended by Shah Rukh Khan who came along with his wife Gauri and kids - Suhana and Aryan, Karan Johar, Yash Chopra and debutante Anushka Sharma. All of them seemed to enjoy the film. It is learnt that Adi was very anxious to know whether his latest venture at turned out well or not. His Yash Raj Films desperately needs after having gone through a string of flops in the past few months.”The source further adds, “Well Adi was a relieved man once the show was over as RNBDJ has SUPERHIT written all over. It is definately going to YRF’s savior just like last year’s SRK starrer Chak De India was! The movie is a complete family entertainerquite funny and has some really spectacular dance sequences. The highlight number being the one where the King Khan is shown imitating old actors like Rajesh Khanna and Shammi Kapoor, etc. The film is a simple sweet love story shot mainly in India. Anushka has made a good debut and she is a good dancer.”The music of the film is disappointing already, quite unlike the typical SRK starring blockbusters from Yash Raj, perhaps thats why we dont see the film generating much interest in the audiences. Lets see what fate holds for SRK and Yash Raj.

SRK goes chop, chop, chop


SRK has chopped of his long flowing silky hair for his upcoming K.Jo flick My Name Is Khan.

SRK’s new look has been given to him by hairstylist Dilshad and SRK will be trimming his hair further for the next part of the movie.A source says, “His hair cut was done in three stages. He is sporting the second stage look and will further chop his hair shorter in a few days.”SRK plays the role of Rizwan Khan, who is diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, which is a mild form of autism.

Aamir makes Jiah cry


While some Khans are fighting amongst themselves, some Khans are making each other cry, like Aamir Khan making Jiah Khan cry for all the right reason.

Jiah Khan who stars in Ghajini opposite Aamir Khan remembers the moment when she got selected for the movie, she was all nervous for the audition and eventually when she got selected she broke down into tears.She says, “When Aamir and Murugadoss told me I was in, I could not believe it! I was in tears! I broke down completely. I was overwhelmed! I was so happy that tears automatically welled up my eyes and began rolling down my cheeks.”

Jiah also reveals that she cherishes the moment when Aamir praised her in front of her mother.She says, “Aamir told my mother that if I was a part of Ghajini it was because of my own achievement and talent. It was the best compliment I have received that too from the best actor of the country–Aamir Khan. What more could I ask for.”

Jiah is awaiting the release of Ghajini.

Akshay plans to screen Jumbo for son


Akshay Kumar was bushy dubbing for the animated film Jumbo, where he lends his voice to the main character along with mama-in-law Dimple Kapadia who is also lending her voice to the flick.

Apparently while the mama-in-law and son-in-law were busy dubbing for the film, Akki’s son Aarav was keeping them company and when he got a peek at Jumbo he was quite excited and wanted Khiladi daddy to show him and his friends the movie.Akshay confirms, “Yes, Aarav can’t wait to see Jumbo on screen. He’s just too excited, and I’m trying to see what I can do about it.”

Well now that’s a jumbo wish by Aarav to his dad.

Arjun Rampal to have a lavish b’day bash for wife


Arjun Rampal is pretty busy these says, he is busy organising a very luxurious birthday bash for his wife Mehr, coming this weekend.However Arjun is not going to celebrate his b’day in a grand way, he says, “I will cut a cake, blow candles and make a wish! At night, I will have a quiet dinner with a few close friends. There is no grand bash, as we partied a lot in Dubai last week. But yes, for Mehr’s birthday, I will have a party for her. That’s my gift to her. I am working on it as it’s a very big year for her and we want to make it special.”Asked about the gift for his wife and Arjun says, “Yes, I have something special for her in mind but it’s too personal to talk about it.”We wish Arjun’s wife Mehr a very happy birthday.

Ayesha Takia’s weight upsets Salman Khan


Ayesha Takia has always been on the heavier side, the actress who managed to lose some weight some while ago brought it back again with much fuller force. However Salman Khan who is a fitness addict did not like Ayesha’s plump look in a song for their upcoming Boney Kapoor’s flick Wanted Dead or Alive.Salman had shot a song with Ayesha in Bangkok, but when he saw the song he did not like it and asked Boney to re shoot the whole song. Boney agreed and shot Ayesha in such a way that she looks slim.A source reveals, “Ayesha is a very pretty and talented girl. She reshot for the song without any nakhras. It is unlikely that she knew why she was made to reshoot the song which she had already shot for in Bangkok.”When Ayesha was also quizzed about the same on sms, she replied, “I don’t know about this. At the moment, we are shooting two new songs.”However Boney tells a different story, “Well, I did reshoot a song for Wanted… And yes, I had shot that song at a nightclub in Bangkok. But I didn’t reshoot it in Mumbai just because Salman asked me to. When I saw some shots of the Bangkok song I had second thoughts about it simply because I didn’t like the backdrop. That’s why I erected a new lavish set in Mumbai. It has worked out well this time.”Do you think its high time Ayesha got rid of her puppy fat?

Shahid Kapoor stops shooting


Shahid Kapoor packed his bags and stopped shooting for Kaminay as terrorists continued to terrorize the city with continues shooting.Director, Vishal Bharadwaj says, “We were shooting a traffic jam scene for Kaminey at Horniman Circle, which is a couple of minutes away from Chatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST).We crossed CST at 9.45 pm and headed for the circle. While the men were putting up the lights, we heard firing and explosions close by. We decided to cancel the shoot immediately around 10.30 pm and head home. Shahid left a little ahead of me.”

The whole Mumbai is down because of the terrorizing acts, lets hope it gets back to normal again.

SRK: Priyanka is the sexiest Indian actress


Well this is the biggest compliment any actress can ever receive and the lucky one here is Priyanka Chopra who is on cloud nine after SRK referred to her as the sexiest Indian actress.When asked about the compliment, Priyanka says, “I think it is a very nice compliment, coming from one of the greatest actors in the country. We had a blast working together in Don, and now, I’m doing a special appearance in his Billoo Barber. “Well hope both the sexy actors keep entertaining us forever.:)

Kareena doesn’t let Deepika act with Saif again


Kareena Kapoor lost out a role in Imtiaz Ali’s next flick opposite real life hero Saif Alik Khan to Deepika Paudkone, but this time she made sure that no such thing happens.

The actress has replaced Deepika Padukone in the flick Agen Vino where she is all set to romance Saif Ali Khan. However director Raghavan reveals that he never considered Deepika for the flick.Raghavan reveals, “I haven’t yet signed her but hope to do that soon. I can give more details only by December end.”The film is an Indian version of James Bond and will have two leading actresses, one Indian and other foreign.

Shahid Kapoor gets bronzed


Shahid Kapoor has taken cue from perfectionist Aamir Khan and has gone into hibernation for keeping his look for his upcoming flick Kaminay a secret.

Shahid has been given tough directions by director Vishal Bharadwaj about his look and keeping it a secret.

The director and actor spent hours and hours deciding their look and the outcome it seems is fantastic.

A source says, “It’s a rough and tough avatar. “Shahid has literally soaked himself in the sun for the bronze look, and has a new hairstyle, too.”

Well eager to see Shahid in this new avatar.

Katrina look alike confusing Salman Khan

Salman seems quite impressed by any girl resembling his girl friend and actress Katrina Kaif. Earlier it was model Zarine Khan who is to be in a movie with Salman Khan. Now a another girl not only as similar to Katrina in looks is also from UK, the same place Katrina also hailing from, the Miss UK Lisa Lazarus is instead the one who is acting opposite  Sallu in Veer as the second lead of the actor. So Lisa is ready to make a mark into the Bollywood.

First Look - Munnabhai Chale America


Check out the poster of Munnabhai Chale America. This movie will surely rock the box-office.

SRK, the original Munnabhai


Believe it or not, but SRK was Rajkumar Hirani’s original choice for the role of Munnabhai in Munnabhai MBBS, before it went to Sanjay Dutt.

Shahrukh apparently has contributed much to the story of Munnabhai when the script was in its initial stages. It seems many of the memorable scenes from the movie are because of SRK’s inputs to producer-director duo Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Raj Kumar Hirani.

Due to unknown reasons SRK couldn’t do the role of Munnabhai which eventually went to Sanjay Dutt. However during the credit’s of the film in the end, Raj Kuamr Hirani mentions and thanks SRK for his inputs in the script.

Well thanks SRK for leaving the role, ‘coz there is no Munnabhai without our Sanju Baba

Soha Ali Khan Scared of Driving Cars


Soha Ali Khan who proved that she is a brave girl by deciding to live on her own despite having her big brother in town has revealed that what scares her the most is driving cars.

In some films, where Soha was required to drive a car, she tactfully avoided it but she couldnt do that for Dil Kabaddi.Soha tells us, “I am a very bad driver. In fact I get really scared if I have to drive. I never shot driving scenes in my previous films, but then for this particular shot in Dil Kabaddi I had to drive at the marine drive 7 o clock in the morning. We had made my personal driver to sit at the back seat to instruct me while I was supposed to drive. He helped me but then I was very stressed out for the shoot.”Debutante director, Anil Senior Sharma adds, “Soha had told me she hates driving and is scared of doing that but we couldn’t avoid the scene. We had to coax her and convince her that she could do it well. I made her take eight to ten rounds just to increase her confidence before actually shooting for the scene. She did it easily but one can see the tension on her face. I must say she managed it well in the end.”I’m curious to see her expressions in that scene.

Katrina Kaif reveals how to win Salman


Katrina Kaif has always been supported by Salman Khan. The actress got a strong foothold in the industry thanks to the generous Khan.And now she reveals how she won him over, she says, “He (Salman) likes to act tough but it is so easy to win him over. Anyone who wants to get close to him only has to act defenceless, play the underdog and say, ‘I have no friends and no one loves me’. Bas, Salman will adopt that person.”I hope other young actresses are not reading this.

Yet another lip lock from Hrithik Roshan

Who can ever forget the sensuous lip lock between Aishwarya Rai and Hrithik Roshan in ‘Dhoom 2’? Now, the history is going to repeat itself with much more passion it seems.

Much is being said about Hrithik’s chemistry with hot actress Barbara Mori amidst the shooting of ‘Kites’. Now the bonding is getting better each day for this The Mexican bombshell has gotten so comfortable working with Hrithik, director Anurag Basu and producer Rakesh Roshan , that she has been giving suggestions to make certain scenes look better. As a result what was initially planned as just a peck on the cheek was modified into a full-blown smooch after actress Barbara Mori insisted.

The scene we are talking about has Hrithik and Barbara jumping from a great height. Before the deadly jump, Hrithik was supposed to kiss Barbara on her cheek. It was a crucial kiss, but Barbara felt a smooch would look better, considering the chemistry between the lead characters in the film.

After some deliberation, Barbara’s suggestion has been incorporated into the scene. And instead of a kiss, Hrithik smooched her before the two did the stunt. What say Papa Roshan?
