Kajol and Shahruk Khan go for a leaner look

Karan Johar, Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol are in Los Angeles now shooting for their latest project ‘My Name Is Khan’. Now, Kajol plays an NRI woman in the film and her character requires her to look thin. So, Kajol is on a weight losing spree now so that she fits the bill and some super sexy dresses.

She has forgone her binging habit and has started with a special diet. Her instructor is taking care that Kajol includes lots of nuts, especially almonds in her diet. Apart from keeping a tab on the calorie intake, Kajol is sweating it out at the gym too to cut that extra flab.

Moreover, SRK also needs to look lean as he plays an NRI Muslim man here. Hope this superhit jodi of the silver screen with their leaner looks weaves the same magic as it had done in ‘DDLJ’, ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’ and so on.

The tinsel town gives a quiet welcome to 2009

This time New Year saw a quiet celebration from Bollywood stars as the recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai and the ongoing recessionary phase led to cancellation of events and tightened security everywhere. The Taj, Oberoi and Trident hotels opted out of hosting their annual New Year parties.

Amitabh Bachchan spent a low key evening at home with wife Jaya Bachchan. Abhishek and Ash were in Ooty in the state of Tamil Nadu busy shooting for their next. Preity Zinta is vacating overseas. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor went for a pre-planned holiday break after Saif was released from the hospital a few days ago. Ajay Devgan continued his annual celebrations at his farm house at Karjat on the outskirts of Mumbai.

Ameesha Patel and Raima Sen set the stage afire with their performances at the Country Club for New Year celebrations. Also, Sanjay Dutt hosted a party at home to welcome the oncoming year.

Raima Sen & Arbaaz Khan paired for PVR films

Releasing this February 6, ‘Mere Khwabon Mein Jo Aaye’ has an unusual pairing of Raima Sen and Arbaaz Khan. The movie based on extra marital drama has a female director Madhurita.

Talking about her first female director, Arbaaz says, ‘Actually, I already have a female director at home,’ jokes Arbaaz. ‘Malaika thinks she directs my entire life. But seriously, I was very impressed by Madhurita Anand’s mature script about love marriage and adultery. It’s got me and Raima Sen.’

Also starring in a pivotal role is Randeep Hooda, who plays as many as 18 different characters in the film.

Arbaaz also plays the lead with brother Sohail in the home production ‘Kissan’, which Puneet Sira is directing. ‘It’s a rural story and the problems caused by migration. Sohail and I play brothers, and that’s the best part of it… Malaika and I are together though only for an item song in ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’. I’m looking forward to doing a full-fledged film with her,’ says Arbaaz.

Sameera Reddy to remind us of Smita Patil

We last saw Sameera Reddy in ‘Taxi No. 9 2 11’ and then the dusky gorgeous lady seemed to disappear into oblivion. Now, she is all set to surprise us with her de-glam avatar as she plays a rustic Dalit woman in Nagesh Kukunoor`s “Yeh Hausla”, walking bare feet in the mud in ghagra-choli with peacocks accompanying her.

When compared with Smita Patil, Sameera says, “I never knew I could do these things. And this Smita Patil comparison is getting uncanny. It was Buddhadeb Dasgputa who first compared me with her.”

Working in this film has given Sameera a lift and says, “I feel I`m now born as an actor. When people see me in `Yeh Hausla`, I hope they see me and not just Smita Patil. While doing `Yeh Hausla`, I felt I was connecting with Smita`s spirit. Maybe it was the pure, unspoilt ambience and that whole spirit of `Chakra` and `Manthan` that Smita is associated with.”

“Nagesh has taught me so much. I`ve connected with emotions within myself that I never knew existed. I felt I`ve gone to acting school. Other actors came and went. But I was there for the full 47-day schedule. I`m in every frame of the film,” said Sameera praising her director.

Priyanka Chopra and two flop heroes

Priyanka Chopra is out on a spree to establish flop heroes, it seems coz she will be seen with two down market Bollywood hunks, Uday Chopra and Dino Morea, in Yashraj Films’ ‘Pyaar Impossible’.

It is well understood that the movie is most probably a move from the production house to re-launch Uday Chopra, the Chopra scion. Dino Morea will play Priyanka’s love interest.

‘Pyaar Impossible’ is said to be inspired from superhit Hollywood movie ‘Notting Hill’ which starred Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant in the lead. Here, the role of Hugh Grant, a humble bookshop owner, is going to be played by Uday Chopra. The movie is set to roll in February this year.
