Celina Jaitley’s Birthday Wishlist


Celina Jaitley has tasted a little bite of the so-called success of Golmaal Returns but she still feels she is unlucky, especially in love. She celebrated her 27th birthday on 24th November without the ’someone special’ in her life.“So maybe for my birthday, god will grant me romance and love. About time I got lucky in love,” Celina told IANS.Nevertheless, something good came up with the absence of love in her life. She spent her birthday partying with destitute girls at Regina Spaces she threw a party at the NGO premises for them.“I threw a birthday party for my girls. Nothing makes me happier than seeing them smile. Wish my family was here.”Celina’s family too couldn’t make it to Mumbai for the occasion and her pet dog made sure she doesnt have a peaceful day before her birthday.“So for me it was not a very happy birthday. My parents left Mumbai and my dog didn’t take well to their absence. So she swallowed plastic. The entire day before my birthday the vet was trying to pull the plastic out of her throat. Not a very pleasant way to bring in my birthday.”She didnt have anyone to gift her anything so she gifted herself a brand new BMW.“I need that boost. I’ve been working hard and my ‘Golmaal Returns’ is a hit. So I need to indulge myself. I know a girl’s best friend are diamonds. But she needs a posh car to get to the jewellery store. So a BMW,” said Celina.Its not always bad to be alone on birthdays isn’t it… especially if you can afford a BMW.

Its going to be a mad mad rush in theaters for December. In the next two weeks there’ll be as many as 10 movies lined up for release. Of course the most desperately awaited films are Shahrukh Khan’s Rab ne Bana Di Jodi which is going to release on 12th and Aamir Khan’s Ghajini which is due release on 25th December.

There are two movies releasing tomorrow - Oye Lucky Lucky Oye directed by Khosla Ka Ghosla fame director Dibakar Banerjee featuring Abhay Deol and Neetu Chandra in lead roles. There is Onir’s Sorry Bhai releasing on the same day, the film has Chitrangada, Sanjay Suri and Sharman Joshi along with Boman Irani and Shabana Azmi.

Then next friday two important releases lined up - Naseeruddin Shah’s Maharathi and Khalballi - Fun Unlimited starring new comer Nikhil Dwivedi. I dont expect much out of Khalbali but Maharathi definitely seems like something not to miss.

Then the Friday after that we’ll see the release of movies like Dil Kabaddi starring Rahul Bose, Irrfan Khan, Konkona Sen, Soha Ali and Rahul Khanna. It seems like an interesting movie and my pick of the week would definitely be Dil Kabaddi and Vinay Pathak’s Oh My God  because all the other releases seem to be bland.There is Horn Ok Pleasss with Nana Patekar, Mandira Bedi’s Meerabai Not Out, Wafa starring Rajesh Khanna romancing a Pakistani bombshell.

And then there is of-course the most awaited film of the year - Ghajini on 25th December.

Perfectionist Aamir Shoots in South Africa


Aamir Khan is famous all over India as ‘The Perfectionist’ (we’ve also heard stories of his perfection annoying some filmmakers) but with the kind of performances he comes up with - its appropriate to call him Robert Di Niro of India.

For his forthcoming film Ghajini, he managed to convince the film makers to for a quick trip to South Africa to finish shooting for a pending song.A source tells us, “Aamir was shooting in South Africa a few months back for some important scenes and a duet number. But during the shooting of action scenes, Aamir encountered a leg injury and he had to rush back to India. The duet number which was to be shot on him and debutante Asin was left to be picturised. But then after Aamir got back in shape he expressed his wish to the makers that they should again go back to South Africa to shoot the pending duet. By then almost the entire shoot of the film was over. But since Aamir insisted the producers were left with no choice but take the crew to South Africa in a special chartered flight.”“Aamir is known for his secrecy concerning plots of his films and his character but this time he made a limit by even keeping the shooting location of the film a secret for the crew members right till they reached South Africa. Everything was kept hush hush and even after shooting the song the crew members were told not to disclose anything.” the source adds.“Ghajini’s director, AR Murugadoss was a bit hesitant initially as it would escalate the cost but Aamir convinced him that he wanted nothing but the best for the film and for that reason alone, the director had no choice but to relent.” concludes the source.Cant wait for this film… Its releasing on 25th December with 1500 prints world-wide. Way to Mr.Perfectionist!

Farhan Akhtar Gets A Hug From Robert Di Niro


It was dream come true for Farhan Akhtar when he got a hug from his favorite superstar Robert Di Niro. Di Niro has been Farhan’s childhood idol and he finally got a chance to meet him thanks to the launch of Atlantis Hotel in Dubai last week.“I can’t even begin to tell you what it meant to me. I mean, everyone who loves cinema loves De Niro, right? But with me it’s a little more,” Farhan told IANS.“When I heard he was going to be there at the Dubai event, I had to be there too. Yes, De Niro was my primary incentive for attending. I had hoped for a handshake with De Niro at the most. I got a hug. I don’t know whether he felt my respect for him. But to see him so up close and personal was an awesome experience.“De Niro turned out to be a thorough gentleman. Everyone there at the Dubai event wanted to meet him. What an ordeal it must have been for him to smile and talk to everyone. But he was so in control,” Farhan said.Since Farhan has just begun his innings as an actor, not many people know about him, especially folks outside India. But look who’s introduced Farhan to Di Niro - apna SRK.“Shah Rukh (Khan), who was with us, was sweet enough to tell De Niro quite a lot about my work. De Niro has given us his contact details where we’ll be sending him my films. I’m doing so right away. I’m completely impressed. I hadn’t gone there expecting him to give me a star treatment or anything. But he was wonderful. He spoke to us. That was more than I could ask for.”“We were constantly doing something or the other, attending one event after the next. There was no respite. You can hardly call it a holiday. Now I need a holiday to get over the experience and relive my golden moments with De Niro. To me it was amazing to have met someone who has been a complete inspiration for me. My love for movies was inspired by people like De Niro and Mr. (Amitabh) Bachchan. He was a wow factor right after I saw ‘Taxi Driver’, ‘Raging Bull’, etc.”You just cant stop raving can you!

Chitrangada is Sudhir Mishra’s Chandramukhi

It was Sudhir Mishra who introduced Chitrangada Singh in the tinsel town with ‘Hazaaro Khwaishein Aisi’ and the director openly expressed his displeasure when Chitrangada chose to make her comeback with ‘Sorry Bhai’. However, the director liked the film quite a lot and finally came to good terms with the lady.

Now, Sudhir has cast Chitrangada in the role of a courtesan in his period film that is strangely titled ‘The Nawab, The Nautch Girl and The John Company’. Chitrangada will play the nautch girl in the film which is set in era of the pre-Independence, British-ruled India. To be mentioned here that Sudhir has also replaced his regular Soha Ali Khan from his next ‘Aur Devdas’ and has roped in Chitrangada for the role of Chandramukhi. Mishra made certain changes to the film’s script and roped in Chitrangada for the part that was initially meant to be played by Soha Ali Khan.

So, apart from making a comeback to Bollywood, Chitrangada has also managed to make her comeback into someone’s heart too!


Beware of Marriage, Kareena Tells Amrita


Kareena Kapoor is giving her girlie pal some girlie gyan about marriage and boyfriends. Although Amrita is more experienced in this department but Kareena tells her not to rush into marriage with her latest boyfriend Shakeel Ladak.

According to Indian newspaper reports, the young lasso from the Kapoor clan is not happy that her best friend and Golmaal Returns co-star Amrita Arora is rushing into a marriage with new love Shakeel Ladak.According to sources, “Kareena thinks it’s too soon for Amrita to settle down. She feels that she should think before rushing into this big decision. Like all gal pals, Bebo and Amu discuss their boyfriends and relationships, which is why she was shocked when she heard that Amu hadn’t taken her into confidence before making such a big decision. Bebo told Amu that being such close friends they should get married
together at the same time.”The source further ads, “Bebo never hesitates in speaking her mind. She also feels that Amu’s career is now looking up, and it is a wrong decision for her to get hitched right now. Kareena wants Amu to give some more time to her relationship with Shakeel and not jump to conclusions leading to marriage.”Perhaps thats what Bebo is doing with Saif, not jumping on to conclusions that’ll lead to marriage.
