Akshay Kumar’s Italian Suit Worth 5 Lakhs


Aishwarya Rai made news when she picked up shades worth 10 Lakh rupees, Asin picked up shoes worth 2 lakhs and now Akshay Kumar has raised a lot of eyebrows when he decided to wear an Italian designer suit worth Rs. 5 lakh for his forthcoming film Kambakht Ishq.

The movie produced by Sajid Nadiadwala has been already declared one of the biggest budget films. It stars Hollywood biggies like Sylvester Stallone, Brandon Routh Brandon Routh, and Carmen Electra along with apne desi Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor.A source from the film’s crew reported, “Akshay was shooting for his introductory scene in the film. Shabina had sent nearly a dozen suits, each priced at approximately Rs 1.5 lakh. But Akshay didn’t like any suit. There was chaos with everybody wondering how to resolve the problem since Akshay was supposed to shoot for the particular scene in a few hours.”That’s when Akshay and Sabir decided to go shopping. “The scene also has Kareena Kapoor. Kambakkht Ishq also stars a few prominent Hollywood actors. Akshay obviously wanted to look suave so he chose a suit, which was much more expensive than what Sajid had imagined. But Sajid is a magnanimous producer. He and Akshay are quite close. In fact, they went to the same school (Don Bosco, Matunga) where Akshay was one year junior to Sajid,” said our source.A source close to Sajid, confirmed the story and said, “Yes. This did happen. Akshay didn’t wear any of the suits sent by Shabina. But that’s okay. Such things do happen during film shoots. Akshay chose a superb black suit with a hint of blue. It’s a unique piece.”

All good things come for a price… and Akshay Kumar is getting pricey as he gets good.

Katrina finds working with new directors risky


Katrina Kaif from start of her career has worked with established directors like David Dhawan, Anees Bazmee and Subhash Ghai amongst many others. However the beautiful actress doesn’t want to risk her hit career by working with new directors.She says, “The first thing that I see before choosing a film is definitely the director. If a new person comes to me with a script and says ‘let’s go for it’, I should be really willing to take risks to agree but I guess that will also happen sometime. Working with new directors is risky.”Katrina also stresses on the right man behind the camera, “If a director who can’t pull off a good script comes up to me with a fantastic script and I love it, it is still a meaningless and futile exercise to go ahead with the film. For me, who directs the film is of utmost importance,” says Katrina.Well all new Bollywood directors who were keen to cast Katrina must be sobbing on reading this news.

She was in great pain but realised that it was unintentional, so she didn’t complain.”

Ranbir, Katrina has a beautiful nose unlike yours. Be careful boy!

Salman says Shun Terrorism Follow Quran


Salman Khan broke his silence over the 26/11 attacks on Mumbai and spoke for the first time about Islam and terrorism. He said Islam doesn’t teach terrorism and Muslims should rather follow Quran than extremists. In a television interview he said,“Islam mein toh yeh hai hi nahin… ya toh aap in terrorists ki baat suniye ya phir jo Rasool Allah  (Prophet Mohammed) ne jo baatein sikhayi hain hadeeson mein aur jo Quran mein likha hai usey follow karein”

Criticizing the government like all the Bollywood actors have done in the past two weeks, he said -“Jab buses aur trainon mein blast ho te thay everyone was going on with their normal regular life… ab jo yeh period hai unko aisa lag raha hai ke hum kahin par bhi safe nahin hain… ab government unki baatein sunegi - the powerful people who do not feel safe anymore… they will now take a stand… aur yeh achi baat hai… lekin yeh agar baat pehle ho jaati toh yeh naubath hi nahin aati.”

Salman also disapproved of the blame game India and Pakistan are playing after the attacks. He believes -“Itna terrorism Pakistan mein khud ho raha hai… Benazir Bhutto maari gayi, Parvez Musharraf par kitne saare attacks hue hain… Marriott blast kardiya gaya… so this is not in control of even Pakistan. Main wahan ke newspapers toh pardhta nahin lekin agar wahan pe aisi koi ghatna hoti hai toh kya woh log bolte hain ke hindustaniyon ne kiya”

Talking about the Ram Gopal Varma’s controversial visit to Taj, Salman says,“Picture ka set dekhne ke liye agar gaye hain toh woh toh bohot hi gadbad hai. Lekin agar woh saath mein thay aur he was concerned ke yeh kya hogaya I cant imagine this, then its fine.”

It has been a subdued Eid for Bollywood this year following the terror attacks on Mumbai last month. All the Muslim actors and actresses in Bollywood wore black bands in protest. They kept their Eid a low key affairs and abstained from lavish celebration and parties.

Salman Khan who hosts a big bash for his family and friends every Bakreid emersed himself in the shooting of his film Veer. Shahrukh and Aamir wore black bands as well but kept themselves busy with the promotion of their forthcoming films Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Ghajini.

Irrfan Khan joined the black band group and urged that Muslims should come together against terrorism. While veteran Naseeruddin Shah plainly wondered “Why are Indian Muslims perpetually required to prove their patriotism?”

Amongst the other actors who wore black bands were Farhan Akhtar, Shabana Azmi, Dia Mirza, Zayed Khan, Soha Ali Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Katrina Kaif. Other celebrities like Javed Akhtar, Sajid Nadiadwala, Abbas Tyrewala, Farah Khan, Sajid Khan etc also joined in.

Adnan Sami Gets Death Threats Post 26/11


Adnan Sami, a British-Pakistani singer and composer is facing the aftermaths of the 26/11 attacks on Mumbai. He has been receiving death threats from anonymous callers on Wednesday.“The calls started coming immediately after that horrific Wednesday. The command was simple, ‘Leave Mumbai immediately or be killed’,” says a harrowed Adnan.

Adnan didn’t know who was making these calls. He had already received a lot of flak from fellow Indian musicians who dislike the coming of Pakistani singers in India (read: Aadesh Shrivastava and Abhijeet). When the calls repeated“Adnan then decided that this time, the threat was more serious than before. For the first time, he became seriously worried for himself and his wife Sabah,” says his friend.Apparently Adnan contacted Sonia Gandhi for help but with elections overhead, she probably didn’t want any controversies hampering Congress’ chances. So she did not provide him any security. Poor Adnan had to get in touch with a private agency for security.His friend confirms, “He now moves around with four bodyguards and four armed men provided by an agency named 911. This security posse accompanies him everywhere. They stay in his house and go to concerts and other social occasions with him. Adnan is seriously scared for his life. He has told very close friends the name of the organisation that should be held responsible if something untoward were to happen to him.”Well, if the threats are to be taken seriously, then Pakistani artistes in Bollywood should surely be careful.

SRK wants to make people smile


Shah Rukh Khan wants to return back smile to the faces of all Mumbaites by doing something that he is best at - Entertaining.SRK says, “Maybe it’s not the best time, but I am leaving everything in Allah’s hands, I have been fortunate not to lose a loved one, but that doesn’t make me hurt less. We have realised the vulnerability of life. Terror is a reality and we need to realistically challenge it.”SRK wants to make a difference in the lives of people, “As an actor my job is to make people smile, to offer them a few hours of solace from all these happenings,” says SRK.SRK then adds, . “It’s sad that change had to emerge this way. But at least it has. Hopefully, this will be considered as a sacrifice for a better tomorrow. We have always seen that big changes are at the cost of lives laid down. It’s a very sad fact of life. I wish it didn’t happen like this. I wish innocent lives were not lost like this.”“We need to be secure with our language. Every religion is a language, a communication with yourself and with God. If my religion is good that doesn’t mean I will make fun of a different religion. We must understand this. Terrorism has it’s own religion. It’s a language which only terrorists understand. They do not belong to any religion.”“To change things around, we need to change ourselves. We should first become law abiding citizens. It should be mandatory for every party to include a security system in their agenda. Which must function independently. We cannot do away with the voting system. So let’s give one secular party of our choice the chance to rule. Let it rule for five years and be accountable to us. Then let’s see. Coalitions and alliances are half-baked ideas. They are always insecure that the majority will go away.” Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is all set to release on 12th December. Are you excited about RNBDJ.
