Questions on Saif-Kareena are frustrating: Soha

Bollywood actress Soha Ali Khan doesn't mind media attention, but asking her questions related to her brother Saif Ali Khan and his girlfriend Kareena Kapoor definitely rubs her the wrong way.

"It's very frustrating when people ask me about them, but it doesn't annoy me any more. I very calmly and politely ask the media not to ask about them (Saif and Kareena)," Soha said.

"Not because I don't want to speak about my brother or Kareena, but because I don't speak for them in case the media is not able to reach them. I don't want to be their spokesperson. Also, these questions are often private and I'm not comfortable with that," she added.

Soha had to face the media glare earlier when her gun licence was cancelled in May. She was also in the news for posing in a sexy, skimpy outfit for lifestyle magazine Maxim.

All that is past and Soha is now relaxed, free of controversies and is enjoying every bit of entering a new decade in life. Having turned 30 on October 4, Soha says that she still feels like she's 16, though her responsibilities in life have increased.

"Honestly, in my heart and in my mind, I feel like I am 16, which is probably a bad thing. I need to grow up at some stage, but I am not ready to do it as yet.”

"I have responsibilities now, I manage a house, I'm financially independent and have bought a new house in Mumbai - these are great things. I do feel like an adult in many ways, but when it comes to the real things, I'm very selfish and very much in the youngest child syndrome," Soha said.

The actress, who made her debut with Dil Maange More in 2004, has featured in a variety of films but gained prominence with Rang De Basanti, Khoya Khoya Chand and more recently Mumbai Meri Jaan.

Soha was in the capital to shoot for forthcoming comedy 99 along with actor Kunal Khemu and comedian Cyrus Broacha. The actress has a long line-up of projects, signalling busy times ahead.

"I am doing a lot of comedies for the first time. There's 99, then there's Dil Kabaddi where I play Irrfan Khan's wife – it is an unusual pairing. There is Dhoondhte Rahe Jaoge with Kunal Khemu and then a Sudhir Mishra film Tera Kya Hoga Johnny – a slightly darker film where I play a small town model.

Talking about unusual pairings, Soha will also soon be seen opposite Emraan Hashmi.

"After 99, I'm doing one romantic film opposite Emraan Hashmi. That's by Vishesh Films and Kunal Deshmukh, who directed Jannat, will be making it. I also have an English horror film in hand," the actress said.

Now Shah Rukh Khan will make a superhero film

After Rakesh Roshan and Goldie Behl, it's Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's turn to make a superhero movie, which is titled "Ra.1".

The computer savvy Shah Rukh has come up with this unique title for the hi-tech sci-fi film, which Anubhav Sinha will be directing.
Though Sinha refused to comment on the project, a source said: "In fact, Shah Rukh is taking very keen interest in the scripting of 'Ra.1'. And the director Anubhav Sinha would like Shah Rukh to be credited as a screenwriter for the project, if and when his production house Red Chillies actually sets down to making this ambitious sci-fi thriller."

Currently, the actor is busy with the shooting of "Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi".

Hrithik Roshan's miraculous recovery after a bad fall in Vegas

Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan has hurt his knees once again, this time while doing a dangerous car stunt for home production 'Kites' in Las Vegas. Though doctors advised him eight weeks rest, the brawny actor was about and running just three days after the accident.

'I hurt myself while jumping from a car. It looked really bad. The doctor said my knee would require eight weeks of healing. He said I'd be limping on crutches for at least two weeks,' Hrithik told IANS.

A source said: 'All hell broke loose and there was panic. Hrithik was in considerable pain and unable to move. And since there was just a few days' shooting left director Anurag Basu wondered what to do.'

The accident would have put 'Kites' and Hrithik's career behind with damaging consequences. In fact, papa Rakesh Roshan was adamant that they'd rather wrap up and lose out on the schedule than risk Hrithik's knee further.

But three days after the injury Hrithik had a miraculous recovery. 'I don't know how it happened. On the third day after the accident I was running on my injured knee. So it's all fine,' said Hrithik. That's what the adamant dancing-star says. But the recurring problem with his knee refuses to go away. Hrithik's knee trouble began when he did some daring stunts in 'Krrish' and 'Dhoom 2'. Hrithik had torn the ligament in his right knee and continued working despite the tremendous pain. In fact, he completed the painstaking training, travelling and shooting required for 'Jodhaa-Akbar' with a bad knee. In December 2007, after wrapping up 'Jodhaa-Akbar', he went to Singapore for six weeks treatment.

Commenting upon his knee problem and the recent accident, the source said: 'It's a fact that Hrithik's knee is a cause for great concern for him and for his entire family. The doctors told him that he would never dance again.

'After his second son was born (May 1), Hrithik went for surgery to the US and spent nearly two months recovering. He was determined to let it heal properly because 'Kites' requires considerable athletic movement. Hrithik didn't take one wrong step until he left to shoot 'Kites' in the US.'

One hopes time would heal Hrithik completely, but it seems unlikely.

Rani Mukherjee Desperately Needs a Hit


Rani Mukherjee has not had a very good year in 2007 and 2008 has started on a bad note too. She had four back to back flops and now she desperately needs a hit in order to keep up her position in Bollywood.In 2007, all the movies she starred in - flopped - Ta Ra Rum Pum, Laaga Chunri Mein Daag, and Saawariya. This year Thoda Pyar Thoda Magic flopped miserably too.

And because of her flop record last year, she is running short of good offers this year. Her popularity has gone down and that is why Titan decided they need another model.

Sanjay Bansali offered her a cameo in his forthcoming flick Chenab Gandhi, but after her cameo in Sawariya flopped she is shying away from cameos.

We hope Rani’s sagging career graph sees a rise this year.

Jaya Bachchan wants to Slap Shahrukh!


While the Bachchans boys bonded well at the premiere of Drona, the ladies of the family maintained distance. Jaya Bachchan is obviously not pleased with Shahrukh and she made it very obvious at a press conference of a lifestyle magazine ‘People’.

She was asked to comment on the Salman-Shahrukh brawl which was a result of Shahrukh making a nasty comment about Aishwarya Rai. She said that that she would have slapped Shahrukh if he had made any infamous statement about her respective and down-to-earth bahu in her presence.

Jaya said she will ask Shahrukh if he really remarked badly about Ash and if his answer is positive, she will slap him.

In that case Shahrukh, you know what to say to avoid the slap… Jokes apart… wonder if she really meant that!
