Aamir Khan on his eight-pack abs


Aamir Khan is looking stunning these days, while other Khans are sporting six-pack abs, Aamir has gone two pack ahead with his physique.

Aamir reveals the secret behind his ripped Ghajini look. Read below to know more:Talking about his physique Aamir says, “I needed this kind of physique because the kind of action you see me doing, you will believe I am capable of only because of my body.”“It took three hours of workout every day. I began on March 15, 2007, one day after my birthday, and it went on till April 21, 2008, I learnt a lot about fitness in this period. And how far I can push myself.”“All credit goes to my physical trainer Satyajit Chaurasia and diet by Dr. Vinod Durandhar. The workout was a cycle of three days…”“Mondays I did chest and back, Tuesdays I worked on the arms, and Wednesdays I exercised my shoulders and legs. Then I would repeat the cycle. This included cardio every day of between half-hour to an hour.”“I did abs to work the core muscles and get the six-pack, say 1,000 crunches. On days when I felt good, I would push myself more. There was no time to think… because I’d be screaming in pain!”“I was particular about getting eight hours of sleep. No matter what time I went to bed, I’d get eight hours, then get up and start training.”It was tough, because I was into post production for Taare Zameen Par at the time. And I’d finish my workouts, shower, crash out for a while to regain strength, then go to work.”“It was a balanced diet, one-third fat, one-third carbs, one-third protein, but normal food, rotis, rice, sabzis, chicken, 16 egg whites, fruit, and four litres of water. All cooked in three teaspoons of oil.”“No, not olive oil. There was no sugar, no potatoes, no bananas, no red meat, no egg yolks and no fried stuff. The diet changed every month.”“In the last week and before I went on the sets of Ghajini, I cut down salt. And the last three days, I took myself to the brink of dehydration by having just one glass of water a day. This cut that last bit of fat. And the body looked lean and ripped.”

So guys now you know how to get that lean mean Aamir Khan’s look from Ghajini.

Aamir Khan is leaving no stone unturned to turn Ghajini into a mega block buster and now he will be walking the ramp to promote his Ghajini style.

Van Heusen has been associated with Ghajini for designing Aamir’s clothes in the first part of the movie and they asked Aamir to walk the ramp for them for which he instantly agreed.A source says, “Aamir will be wearing this brand in the first half of the movie where he has a corporate, modern and fashion-conscious look. The brand just approached him with a formal letter asking him to walk the ramp. Aamir readily accepted, simply stating in reply, ‘It’s a good idea’. Aamir agreed to walk the ramp without monetary expectations.”

Well looks like the ramp will soon be set on fire by the perfectionist Khan.

Abhishek Bachchan And Aishwarya Rai Separated!


Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai had been totally cut off over the last few days thanks to Mani Ratnam’s shooting venue in the jungles of Kerala that rendered the couple totally inaccessible to the world.

Jaya Bachchan fell ill last week and this left the leading couple of Mani Ratnam’s film with no choice but to take a day off from shooting. When Abhishek left with Rakeysh Mehra to Dubai he was absolutely out of contact with dear wife Aishwarya and not only family every one in the industry could not access the couple who seem separated from the rest of the world.

Says Abhishek, “This wouldn’t have been possible if we weren’t for the fact that we wrapped up shooting at one location and we were moving to another location. So that gave me manoeuvring power.

It’s not so much the distance but the inaccessibility. Out there in the jungles me and Aishwarya were totally cut off from Mumbai and the rest of the world. That really had us worried about the family.”

Directors Sanjay Bansali and Vipul Shah got extremely frustrated because they wanted to lock Aishwarya’s dates before she commits to someone else.

“I’ve been trying to contact Aishwarya for weeks. She’s totally unreachable. I’m willing to fly down wherever she is. Now if she’s moving to Ooty she’d be more accessible,” says a desperate Vipul Shah.

SRK plays an autistic in My Name is Khan


SRK is not resting on the laurels that his current flick Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi has brought for him, instead he is back to work as he is all set to start filming for Karan Johar’s My Name is Khan from tomorrow and SRK will be seen suffering from autism in the movie.

SRK plays Rizvan Khan who suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome which makes interaction and behavior strange and difficult.SRK has to say bye bye to lean look as he needs to put on weight for his role, SRK says, “The role requires me to have a fuller look. I am reading, watching documentaries, meeting people who are affected by autism and doctors who deal with it. It’s very unnerving and I salute parents who bring up children with any disorders.”

Rizwan Khan is suspected to be terrorist because of two reasons in the movie - one he is a Muslim and the other his strange behavior due to autism.

Well looks like we would get to see another splendid performance from SRK after Chak De.

Hitting at Terror - Top 10 Bollywood Movies that say it All

They say, “Movies are the mirrors of society” and with Indian society so torn with the issue of terrorism, it is but natural that the subject of terrorism find its’ way into the themes and plots of Bollywood movies. Terrorism emerged as a subject with prominence in the Hindi films with Subhash Ghai’s ‘Karma’ which was able to contextualize the issue of terrorism in and around Kashmir with a candor.

Then came the movies which delved into the psychology of terrorists with the likes of Santosh Sivan’s ‘The Terrorist’ and yet again, the silver screen showed the joint operations of army and police to combat terrorism in films like ‘Zameen’ and ‘Tango Charlie’.

Now, our new bunch of directors view terrorism with a different scale focusing on how the individual and the civil society adjusts and walks on with the life after being stopped at by bomb blast or attacks with films like ‘Mumbai Meri Jaan’, Wednesday’ and the likes.

Films reach wider rather than other forms of arts and this is one reason behind the appeal of such movies. With the absence of political or diplomatic angles in these films but having human angle to counter such incidents in a more civilized way certainly help across the societies who face and suffer frequently.

To pick up certain movies which best deal with the sensitive issue of terrorism is a Herculean task, yet there are some movies which can be regarded as the masterpieces in Bollywood movies dealing with terrorism. Some of them are:


terror movie sarfarosh

The movie revolves around Assistant Chief of Police, Ajay Singh Rathod (Aamir Khan) and his struggle against organized terrorism from across border. Ajay comes from an upright, middle-class family whose lives have been traumatized by a terrorist attack. Ajay battles against a band of hidden criminals smuggling arms into the country from Pakistan, via the Rajasthani border assisted by his devoted Muslim including Inspector Salim (Mukesh Rishi) and lover Seema (Sonali Bendre).

The movie has great characterizations and performances. Aamir Khan is far beyond competent. The film is a 100 percent as an absolute entertainer, crime drama and attack on terrorism.


terror movie roja

Roja explores the Kashmir problem and portrays it from the common man’s point of view. Directed by Mani Ratnam, it went on to win the National Award for best film on national integration. Roja stars Arvind Swamy and Madhubala in the lead roles. It also marked the successful debut of A.R.Rehman in Bollywood.

The film shows how a cryptologist Rishi (Arvind Swamy) gets abducted by militants in Kashmir who ask for the release of Kashmir militant, Wasim Khan, in return. What follows is a heart renting struggle of a wife, the helplessness of the system and finally, the transformation of the terrorist packed with some excellent performances.


terror movie bombay

Yet another brilliant one from director Mani Ratnam, ‘Bombay’ is set amidst the savage communal strife that ravaged parts of India in the early 1990s following the demolition of the disputed Muslim shrine Babri Masjid by Hindu extremists.

The movie revolves around the love story of a Hindu youth Shekhar (Arvind Swamy) and a Muslim girl Sheila Banu (Manisha Koirala) from Malampur village who are caught in a senseless communal bloodshed but emerge united and safe.

The movie is an expert handling of an extremely sensitive subject giving it a wide commercial appeal loaded with superb on-screen performances and an evergreen music from maestro A.R. Rehman.

Dil Se

Amar (Shahrukh Khan) is on a terrorist interview assignment for All-India Radio somewhere in a northern territory, where he keeps bumping into Meghna (Manisha Koirala), and is charmed by the mystery around her. Then comes his engagement to the frank and outspoken Preity (Preity Zinta) and the fact that Meghna is a terrorist.

What makes the film a gem is superb performances from Shahrukh Khan and more so, the brilliant performance from Manisha as a brainwashed terrorist who seems torn between love and her so-called mission, her humane side and her terrorist cause. Added to this, is the direction from Mani Ratnam and excellent scores from A.R.Rehman.


terror movie maachis

The film deals with the tale of wronged Punjabi youth who takes to arms to avenge the injustices heaped onto him by the corrupt political set up.

The movie is different in the sense that it looks inside the emotions, the joys and the insecurity and grievances of the terrorists. They are shown as a mixture of opposites - compassionate and caring at one time, insensitive and brutal at the other. The film is set against the backdrop of the Bluestar Operation and the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Newcomers like Chandrachur Singh, Raj Zutshi, Jasjit Shergill, Ravi Gosain star along with veterans like Om Puri, Kanwaljeet, Kulbushan Karbanda besides Tabu who provides the female interest.


terror movie Fiza

FIZA is the story of a young girl (Karisma Kapoor) in search of her brother (Hrithik Roshan) who disappeared during the communal riots of 1992-93 in Mumbai.

After making every effort to trace him, Fiza sets out in the first half of the film to determine whether Amaan is dead or alive. Using various methods — be it through the media, politicians or the law enforcement agencies — Fiza embarks on her mission that brings her into contact with various characters and situations. The second half of the film takes a turn and focuses on Amaan’s difficulty in coping with re-integration back into his old world.

Mission Kashmir

terror movie mission kashmir

The story of the film is about Altaaf (Hrithik Roshan), an orphan of war who has been adopted by a policeman, Inayat Khan (Sanjay Dutt), and his wife, Neelima (Sonali Kulkarni). The day Altaaf discovers that Inayat Khan was the one who killed his parents, a terrorist is born within him. Ten years later, he re-appears for a highly secret mission code, named ‘Mission Kashmir’, a closely guarded plan that will change the map of the subcontinent forever. He fights for Hilal Kohistani, but he is also obsessed with his own private mission: he wants to, he must kill Inayat Khan. In Srinagar, Altaaf meets his childhood sweetheart, Sufi (Preity Zinta), in whom he rediscovers love and hope.

The Hero

Director Anil Sharma’s film is based on the Indo-Pak tensions and terrorism, and has Sunny Deol playing an army intelligence officer Arun Khanna, who is deputed by the Indian Secret Service Agency RAW at the Kashmir. His aim is to get information regarding terrorist activities across the border. He sends Reshma (Preity Zinta) across the border to Pakistan as a maidservant in Colonel Hidayatulla’s (Deep Dhillon) house. How her identity is exposed, how she escapes, how the major finds out the ISI head in Canada are all roped in with gritty action sequences and chilling pyrotechnics.

A Wednesday

terror movie a wednesday

One of those rare variety films, ‘A Wednesday’ deals with terrorism is an all new and different perspective from the eyes of a common man. The film stars as a basic edge-of-the-seat action-thriller, where an anonymous individual (Naseeruddin Shah) makes a call to the Commissioner of Police Rathod (Anupam Kher) and warns him of six bombs being planted in the city of Mumbai. In return, he asks for the emancipation of four hardcore anti-national terrorists. The film takes turn when he kills these four terrorists. Blessed with performances from Naseeruddin Shan & Anupam Kher, the film reminds of the prohibited path that the common man has to opt for to revolt against the system.

Black Friday

Anurag Kashyap’s Black Friday is a hard-hitting movie that revisits the 1993 serial bomb blasts in Mumbai in which more than three hundred people died and many were injured. Probing into the reasons behind this attack, it goes into the lives of key players like Tiger Memon (played by Pawan Malhotra ), his henchman Badshah Khan (Aditya Srivastava) and ACP Rakesh Maria ( Kay Kay Menon ), who investigated the case. Alongside the bomb blasts, the film also documents the journey of an angry, revenge seeking Muslim youth, Badshah Khan, from Delhi to Rajasthan and still further.

When Nobody Recognized Shahrukh Khan


Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is rocking at the box office and Shahrukh Khan’s simple middle class avatar is getting all the rave reviews. And getting into the character of Surinder Sahni was the most memorable time SRK had while shooting for RNBDJ“The first character is Surinder Sahni and we wanted him to look like a middle class guy, having a fixed routine - perhaps to the extent of being boring. We also wanted to give him a little bit of amusing quality without making him a caricature and to get all that, I think a physical appearance was important. Especially, for the movement of the story, the look was very important. One day, I put a moustache and got some hairpiece done and showed it to Adi and he said, ‘This is the guy he should look like.’ It’s not how weird or funny I look, but the simplicity of the character will permeate through the screen.I think the most memorable part was the first seven-eight days when I changed my look for Surinder Sahni. When I used to walk on the sets, nobody would recognise me.I got a taste of things that will come 30 years later in my life when I will no longer be a star and nobody will recognise me. I think that is the most memorable moment but I hope it never happens to me ever again because not to be recognised after 20 years of such high recognition is something I wasn’t ready for.”

Shahrukh says he identifies more with Surinder than with Raj and Rahul that he has been playing over the last 15 years.“I am basically very ordinary in the way I think, in the way I do things. I come from an educated lower middle class background and I have never lost touch with that. Suri is what I really am. And my challenge as an actor is genuinely to make Surinder Sahni the new romantic icon.I want everybody not to love Raj anymore and say ‘We want to be Suri’. The romantic iconic status crown now shifts from Raj and Rahul to Surinder Sahni because he’s got a good heart.”

We hope so too!

Apart from being a beautiful actress who made a strong impact with her debut movie 1920, Adah Sharma has many more talents, she is an excellent painter(of walls), a dancer and a composer too.The actress who picks up the brush whenever she is free says, “I love painting and I paint everywhere in my house. I’ve done the doors, walls, cups and the candle stand too. Yes, I also tried painting the ceiling once, but couldn’t manage to do it!”She also plays piano and is a pro at it as she has been practicing for five years, “I have been playing the piano for five years because I love playing it. I haven’t given any exams because I don’t want to take it up professionally. I’m also a kathak graduate and have been pursuing it for a while now.”

Well this beauty surely has many hidden talents.
