Ranbir in Abhinav Kashyap’s next

With an array of releases and with some of very promising projects in his kitty, Ranbir Kapoor is definitely one of the most promising actors in our industry at present. So, it did not come as a surprise when Abhinav Kashyap (Dabangg fame) chose him as the central character for his next project. This will be Abhinav’s second directorial venture which will be based in Mumbai and Ranbir will be seen as a street smart tapori with a pure tapori accent. Abhinav Kashyap himself will co-produce this film with Viacom 18.

With this project in his hand, Ranbir gets the honor of being the only actor in Bollywood to be under the hands of both Kashyap brothers. He is working with elder brother Anurag Kashyap’s period film Bombay Velvet.
Currently, Ranbir is busy with his role of a deaf and mute character in Anurag Basu’s Barfee and a romantic role in Ayaan Mukherjee’s Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani.

Check Out The New trailer of ‘Housefull 2’

When the director of the film is Sajid Khan, you know where the film is heading to at the BO. After giving the superhit Housefull, he has made a comedy of confusion, Housefull 2, with dirty dozen. The dozen looks interesting because it has the likes of Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Ritesh Deshmukh, Rishi Kapoor, and Mithun Chakraborty.

The approximately three-minute-long new trailer starts with Rishi Kapoor, who is announcing to the world that he wants a millionaire for his daughter Heena (Asin), but in the very next scene, Randhir Kapoor also professes the same for his daughter played by Jacqueline Fernandez. Meet the two fathers-in-law in search of wealthy sons-in-law. Till then things are quite clear in the trailer, but then starts the Jolly-confusion expressed brilliantly by Johnny Lever in the video.

The high point of the trailer comes when a dazed Ritesh Deshmukh tries to explain the pairing of four Jollys with four brides -- Asin, Jacqueline Fernandez, Shazahn Padamsee and Zarine Khan -- while the other three keep scratching their heads. The audience gets the gist of going-to-happen misunderstandings in the film when Shreyas Talpade says itne saare mandap, itne sare Jolly… aur itne sare baap.

Sajid Khan and producer Sajid Nadiadwala once again promise a laugh riot with Housefull 2. Expect laughter galore and funtertainment this April 6 when the movie hits the theatres. As for now, watch the new trailer of Housefull 2

Salman confirmed for 'No Entry Main Entry'

Filmmaker Anees Bazmee, who is trying to finish the script of No Entry sequel, says he wants to start the shooting of the film as soon as possible.

The sequel is titled No Entry Main Entry.

"I will take one more month to finish the script. Once I finish scripting, we will start shooting as soon as possible. I can't wait to shoot the film. It's going to be a laugh riot," Bazmee told IANS.

"The film has a huge star cast, so we want to lock the dates of the stars before we go on floors," he added saying male leads have been finalised, but he has yet to decide on actresses.

"Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor and Fardeen Khan have been finalised. For the actresses, I will have a meeting with Boney Kapoor and then we will decide. We might repeat some of our previous actresses, but nothing is finalised," he added.

"No Entry" was released in 2005 featuring Salman Khan, Anil, Fardeen, Esha Deol, Lara Dutta and Bipasha Basu and it was a big hit.

Emraan-Esha sizzle in Jannat 2 poster...

The smooch king is slowly turning into an actor of substance. Emraan Hashmi and Eesha Gupta exude an excellent screen chemistry in the latest poster of Jannat 2. The sequel to 2008 hit Jannat is about changing face of gun trade.

Mahesh Bhatt explains that while researching the subject,they learnt from the Delhi police that nawabs and kings had employed skilled artisans to make arms for them to wage frequent wars, but the British banned them, wanting exclusive control over arms and ammunition in India. Centuries later, with sales of arms escalating, the next generation was tapped for their skills and made part of the flourishing illegal trade.

“Jannat 2 will open a can of worms, much like its predecessor did in 2008,” promises Emraan in a recent interview with HT.

“Four years ago, a story about match-fixing may have seemed like pure fiction, but today, after a string of headline-grabbing front page reports, there’s a sense of déjà vu. What you see and read in 2011-2012, was all said in our film four years ago. That’s exactly how it’s going to be with Jannat 2 as well,” he says.

“As part of the research, I even got to fire a gun,” says Emraan who since he was a child, has been hooked to action movies. “I used to fire toy guns earlier. Firing the real thing was a high, but I also realised how much power it puts into your hands. It is used by the police to protect, but if it gets into the wrong hands, it can destroy too. It brings out the dark side in some people and can become a fatal obsession.”

While in the first part, Emraan romanced Sonal Chauhan, in the sequel he is pairing up with Eesha Gupta. The film also stars Randeep Hooda.

Cricketer Yusuf Pathan engaged to Mumbai girl Afreen !

The most eligible bachelor of the Indian cricket team, Yusuf Pathan has confirmed that he got engaged to Afreen a few days ago.

Yusuf did not play for Baroda in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy Twenty20 Tournament on Sunday against Mumbai. Fans at the ground in Mumbai were surprised not to seen Yusuf playing on that day. However, it was later revealed that he had gone to Baroda for his engagement ceremony.

On Tuesday, Yusuf and Irfan Pathan both played for Baroada as they defeated Harbhajan Singh-led Punjab by eight runs to lift the Trophy.

A Baroda team member confirmed that Pathan left Mumbai on Friday for his engagement at Nadiad which is 55 kilometers from Vadodara.

"Pathan left Mumbai on Friday as his engagement was at Nadiad, 55 kilometres from Vadodara," a team source said on Sunday.

"I can confirm that I got engaged some time back. But as far as playing the semi-final against Delhi is concerned, I will be there before the match starts. I will land in Mumbai tomorrow morning and will go to the ground immediately," Yusuf told MiD DAY from Baroda.

He further stated that the ceremony was just a family get-together that happened on Saturday.

Afreen from Mumbai, who got engaged to Yusuf Pathan on Saturday is practising physiotheraphy at Vadodara. Since both the families were keen to finish the engagement formalities at the earliest, in order to finalise the engagement for younger brother Irfan.

"It won't be a surprise if both Yusuf and Irfan get married on the same day," the source said.

Exclusive: Sallu plays it safe with Ash at Tendulkar's party

Sachin Tendulkar scored his 100th century on March 16, in the fourth match of the Asia Cup against Bangladesh in Mirpur; but at a party thrown by the Ambanis to celebrate that ton of tons on Monday – a different kind of game was played out.

And the leading player at this glittering do, hosted by Nita and Mukesh Ambani at their Altamont Road residence Antilla in Mumbai, was none other than Bollywood’s big scorer Salman Khan.

The party, as is known, was the Ambanis’s gesture dedicated to the Master Blaster and their Mumbai Indians IPL skipper, in honour of his achievement. And invited to it, were the A-list of Page 3 types, including the city’s who’s-who, Bollywood stars, cricketers, and captains of industry.

Bollywood, it must be mentioned – led by Amitabh Bachchan himself, was among the first cricket aficionados and Tendulkar fans to tweet congratulatory messages, when the master batsman scored his 100th ton. So its presence at the Ambani party was natural.

What was not natural, however, was the attendance of Salman at this party. The last time the Ambanis hosted a similar bash for Tendulkar in 2009 at their Cuffe Parade residence Seawind, and Salman was conspicuous by his absence. That party was anchored by Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan and also had an impressive Bollywood line-up.

And not only did Salman show up this time, but he played the perfect gentleman by keeping a respectable distance from Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who had come with husband Abhishek. According to a source, "Salman was at his sober best, he was dressed in formal attire, and with great dignity walked into greet and meet hall and took a corner seat." He was joined by his Dabangg co-star Sonakshi Sinha, her father Shatrughan, and old friend Raj Thackeray; while Aishwarya and Abhishek sat at the opposite end with Hrithik and Susanne Roshan and Ekta Kapoor.

"When Salman was asked to share a few thoughts about the man of the evening, he took the mike and spoke extempore, keeping the audience in splits with his ready wit and charm. And, though she sat just a few feet away from him on the podium, Salman studiously refrained from looking in Ash’s direction,” added the source. Abhishek was seen applauding Chulbul Pandey's heartfelt speech.

Even after the ceremony, when vegetarian delicacies and wine were being served at the roof top food court on Antilla, Salman successfully kept aloof from the crowd until Aamir Khan accompanied by Tendulkar and the Ambani couple joined him for a short animated discussion. Harbhajan Singh with Geeta Basra, Sushmita Sen and Virender Sehwag were others, who kept the Dabangg Khan busy, with Virat Kohli taking muscle building tips from Sallu bhai.

Another highlight of the evening was the scene of Priyanka Chopra, the Master of Ceremonies for this grand occasion, who is known to be close to Shah Rukh Khan, giving Salman a hug before the actor graciously departed from the venue stating he had an early shoot for Dabangg 2.
Our hundred dollar question: was there any tension in the air because of these subtle theatrics? Our source said, “You bet… as much as when Sachin Tendulkar was on 99 and waiting to score his 100th hundred at Mirpur that day!”

Ranbir and Deepika Romance in Manali !

They were real lovers once upon a time, they are back together once again, but this time on reel. Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone are getting all cosy and romantic, on screen in Manali. They are shooting for director Ayaan Mukherjee’s film Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. Actors Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin are also with them.

If sources are to be believed, the ex lovers are pretty cordial and are bonding well, without any awkwardness between them.

One thing that we have to appreciate about Ranbir and Deepika is that despite their relationship issues, they did not let their personal life affect their professional life.

Avatar 2 still in pre-production stage: Filmmakers

Mumbai: Denying the rumours regarding the delay in epic science fiction 'Avatar 2', Oscar-winning producer Jon Landau said that since the release date of this film has not been decided yet then the question of its delay doesn't arise.

In India to oversee the 3D release of 'Titanic', Jon said, "'Avatar 2' has not been delayed. We never set a date for it to delay it. We are in very early stages of pre-production and we want to put all the pieces together before we formally announce a date."

Jon is James Cameron's partner in producing both Titanic and Avatar. And like the first, the next two sequels of 'Avatar' will also push the technological frontiers of film-making and viewing. Both the films will be shot on an increased frame rate giving the audience a perceptible difference in quality of images. Though Hollywood experimented with a faster frame rate in the 1970s, the technology could not gain traction.

"Things like higher frame rate have existed in the industry before, but using them meant converting all film projectors. Digital projectors however have no such issues and can run at a higher frame rate without changing anything," he said.

As a strong proponent of 3D, Jon added, "A film ultimately is about the story. But how you present the story and how you manage engagement from the audience is enhanced by the use of technology. 3D activates more of your mind and the brain has to work more to process the imagery you see leading to greater audience engagement."

Many feel that despite large admission numbers, India is still a small market for Hollywood movies in terms of revenue. Jon however does not think so. "I think India is an emerging market and will grow steadily. My coming here signifies that as an industry we acknowledge that. Secondly, I bring a message for the industry in the country asking them to use technology the right way. For example, a theatre may go for a cheaper 1.3K projector, but I'd ask them to go for the 2K ones because it has better quality and gives you a competitive edge and thus profits in the long run," Jon said.

He is enthusiastic about 'Titanic 3D' that has been restored at a cost of $18 million. "We are treating and promoting it as a new film," he said, before adding, "We want to share the movie with a generation of moviegoers who have never seen it on the big screen and, for those who have seen it, 3D will enhance the dramatic story leading them to be more engaged with the characters in the movie than ever before."

Jon is the son of film producer parents who made some landmark films in the 1960s and 1970s like 'Long Day's Journey Into Night' and Sidney Lumet's 'The Pawnbroker'. Ironically, it was not easy convincing them to allow him to join the 'family business'. "Knowing how hard producing films was, they wanted me to become a teacher or do computer science."

How then did he become a producer? "Like all kids, I rebelled," he said with a laugh.

Having seen the film business up close, he is in a perfect position to comment on what's changed in the business. "A lot has changed and we now have newer technologies to tell stories. Movie marketing has also changed drastically."

Yet, before signing off he reiterates, "Despite all these, a movie is still about the script and the story. And that is something that won't change forever."

Priyanka to play Jaya's role in Zanjeer remake?

If all goes well, Priyanka Chopra will be the leading lady in the modern remake of the 1973 movie Zanjeer.

The original film is directed and produced by Prakash Mehra. Amitabh Bachchan played the lead actor, as a a no-nonsense cop who takes on an underworld don. Jaya Bachchan was the leading lady of the original and she was the cop’s love interest and played a street performer.

The new version will have Prakash Mehra’s son Amit, collaborating with with Reliance Entertainment for the remake. The film’s cast and crew are yet to be finalised, though PC has already been approached to enter Jaya Bachchan’s shoes.

The remake will have Priyanka Chopra play a feisty NRI cafe owner.

Amitabh Bachchan’s role will be take over by South star Ram Charan Teja. Buzz also has it that Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan will be a part of the film, essaying pivotal roles.

The film’s shoot will begin in April. Apoorva Lakhia will direct the remake of Zanjeer.

Sallu-Jackie Chan in an action packed film?

Reports have it that Salman Khan is all set to do a film with Jackie Chan. Talks are in progress.

South filmmaker Aascar Ravichandran, is planning a full on action paked film with the duo. He revealed that he plans to come out with a sequel to the Jackie Chan superhit, ‘Armour of God’.

The most interesting part of the filmmaker’s plan is, including Salman Khan in the film, alongside Jackie Chan. Ravichandran is also likely to add a young south superstar to the star cast and most probably, it will be Surya.

We hear that the film will be made on a huge budget of Rs. 400 crore. If true, it would be the most expensive film to be produced in India ever.

Ravichandran confirmed the news that he is currently in talks with Salman Khan for the project.

Kareena shoud not marry Saif but Shahid, says Rakhi Sawant

Rakhi Sawant is one person in the industry who doesn’t care about the world. She speaks her mind without thinking twice.
The latest news about this drama queen is that she is busy giving marriage tips to Kareena Kapoor. At the Radio Mirchi Awards 2012, Rakhi said: “I love Kareena and I am really happy that Kareena will get readymade kids. No, Kareena! You deserve a better husband! You deserve Shahid Khan.” She was then corrected by the reporters that he is Shahid Kapoor.
Rakhi said: “Khan, Kapoor, they’re the same na… I am saying it from the very first day that Shahid Kapoor is the best! He is a bachelor and she (Kareena) is a spinster! You know, I like Saif, but his kids are so old!”
Rakhi Sawant was upset with Bebo. “I didn’t like the fact that Kareena said that she doesn’t like the tag of an item girl; then why did she do an item number.
“She’s my favourite actress, I love her! But why doesn’t she like being called an item girl? Even Aishwarya Rai, who is the best actress ever in Bollywood, has done item numbers, even Kareena is doing them, so she (Kareena) should understand.”
What does Kareena have to say now!!

Vidya, Priyanka, For Bhandarkar's Political Thriller On UP, Bihar

Bollywood director Madhur Bhandarkar is planning a political thriller set against Bihar and Uttar Pradesh and has reportedly zeroed down on Vidya Balan and Priyanka Chopra for the lead role, reports Mumbai Mirror.

The report quoted a close friend of Bhandarkar as saying: "Vidya would suit the role of the mature politician to the T. And after working with Priyanka, Bhandarkar has developed a very good professional rapport with her as well. So let's see which girl wins the race."

"The character is that of a very vulnerable woman from North India, who, in a span of five years, grows into a  bold and conniving woman to survive in the cut-throat political world.

"She will be clad in sarees for most part of the film. "Political films are Madhur's forte. His 2003 Satta based in Mumbai, received critical acclaim," said the friend.

Explaining why Bhandarkar is not going ahead with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's offer, the friend said, "Madhur does not believe in remakes. He did consider Bhansali's offer, which came about 15 days ago, but decided against it. So Ramana is ruled out."

Bhandarkar's friend also revealed, "Madhur is talking to UTV Motion Pictures and Eros International for this one. Both the corporate houses have shown a lot of interest in the project."

"The political thriller will roll in December 2012. "Right now, Bhandarkar is very busy with Heroine which hits the theatres on  September 14."

Amrita Puri: My character in ‘Blood Money’ is based on Emraan Hashmi’s wife

She played the role of Sonam Kapoor’s friend in Aisha and bagged the lead role in director Vishal Mahadkar’s directorial debut

Though she is busy with promoting her first film as leading lady, she spoke about her days in advertising, her passion for acting, her initial struggle and how doing a role in the Sonam Kapoor-Abhay Deol-starrer changed her life for good

From copywriting to acting…what a journey!

I must say that the journey has been very exciting. After doing my PG in mass communication I joined an advertising agency where I worked as a copywriter. I gradually realised that because of my job I wasn’t able to spare enough time for my primary passion: acting. There came a point when I said to myself, we live just once, why not take a leap of faith and give acting a shot!

I did go through a lean patch when I was going with my portfolio to various production houses, then one day I got the opportunity of doing a character role in Aisha. I was just about to give up and go back to advertising, but thanks to that movie, my life changed for good.

The role in Blood Money is also because of my role in Aisha. Emraan Hashmi’s wife (Parveen) had noticed my work in Aisha and it was she who recommended my name to the Blood Money director (Vishal Mahadkar), via Emraan. I was called for an audition and Vishal was so impressed that he took me on board right away!

Tell us a little about your role in Blood Money.

I play the role of Aarzoo, who is a nursery school teacher and is married to Kunal Khemu. The character is based on Parveen Hashmi (who is also a nursery school teacher in real life) and in the film you see the transition of my character from a middle class wife to that of a super-rich one. The love between me and Kunal is very pure and the success of the film’s music testifies that we have been able to establish that in a good way. The sudden lifestyle change does make me first happy and then a little suspicious about the changing scheme of things. At the moment this is all I can say, but do watch the movie to find out how things unfold.

Your co-star in the film, Mia Uyeda has some steamy scenes. Would you be comfortable doing these?

We were cast in our respective roles because of a reason. I wouldn’t be comfortable doing such scenes. (Pauses) Actually, I haven’t thought about that. During the shoot of the film I and Mia did become good friends. It also helped that she was the only other girl on the sets.

What is your approach to the role you play?

It totally depends on the characters that I play. For my role in Aisha, I had to do a lot of research because I didn’t know the space that it existed in. For Blood Money I didn’t have to do much, as the role is that of a contemporary girl. I did spend some time with Parveen Hashmi, on whom the role is modeled, and I also spent a day at a nursery school just to soak in the ambience. Mahesh Bhatt sa’ab also chipped in with some tips, so it wasn’t very difficult.

Vishal Mahadkar is a first time director; did you have any apprehensions?

Absolutely not! Vishal was very clear about what exactly he wanted from each one of us. I saw his passion for making this film when he first narrated it to me. It is very important to have a good working relationship with the director and thanks to that, I am happy with the way the film has turned out.

Your first film as a leading lady is releasing in a few days; are you nervous?

Actually I have been too busy with the promotional activities, going from city to city to feel nervous. Maybe in a few days the nervousness and the excitement will sink in.

Saif plans 3D 'Agent Vinod' sequel...

Actor-producer Saif Ali Khan, who is eagerly awaiting audience reactions to "Agent Vinod", says he might plan a sequel to the spy thriller, and that too in 3D.

"I don't understand 3D and don't enjoy it, but my son does. So, maybe for the larger portion of audiences, one should consider it for sequel," Saif told reporters.

"I didn't consider going for it this time. There was some talk earlier though. If it becomes a big action movie, then it is a good idea to shoot it in 3D," he added.

"Agent Vinod" is directed by Sriram Raghavan, and also features Saif's real life lady love Kareena Kapoor.

Saif says if at all a sequel takes shape, the character of Vinod will be staple.

"It will be the same Vinod with another cast for the sequels if at all it comes. It is too early to discuss right now," the 41-year-old said.

"Agent Vinod" hit screens Friday.


Movie Review: Agent Vinod

Saif Ali Khan and director Sriram Raghavan come together after their cult hit Ek Haseena Thi to create a Hollywood style spy thriller. Khan plays the highly trained and skilled RAW agent Vinod. And much like the Bourne, Mission Impossible and Bond franchises, Raghavan follows the formula of a spy thriller, traversing continents at lightening speed, cutting scenes with a breathlessness and slapping on a pulsating background score.

When his partner Rajan (Ravi Kishan) is killed in Russia while on the tail of a money launderer-racketeer called Abu Nazer (Ram Kapoor), Vinod is given the mission to pick up where Rajan left off. He must find out what the numbers ‘242’ signify and what major plot is involving Kazaan (Prem Chopra), a dangerous go-between in Morocco. It is while in Morocco, the reluctant house guest of Kazaan, that Vinod meets the lovely Dr Ruby (Kareena Kapoor, looking gorgeous). Intrigued by her he finds out her true identity and becomes her self-appointed protector as the pair team up and travel to Latvia, Pakistan and Delhi chasing a nuclear device in order to get to it before it explodes. Along the way Vinod will find himself double-crossed and compelled to think fast and feel less.

Agent Vinod, derived from so many Hollywood movies, is more about the packaging than the content. The narrative skips along without enough milestones or guidance for the audience; it doesn’t even manage to carry you along for the ride during the frenetically shot and cut action scenes.

Saif Ali Khan looks smart, oozes nonchalant charm and plays the poker-faced spy with constructed whimsy. He punches out some witty lines without skipping a beat. Raghavan is clever not to let a potential romantic track derail an already convoluted plot that needlessly involves so many players and countries. The makers have left it open enough to make a part two. Hopefully then the focus will be more on the story and less on the styling and Raghavan will show some more of the skill as he did in Johnny Gaddar and in some scenes in Agent Vinod, like the action scene cut to the ballad ‘Raabta’. If you contain expectations and have not seen too many international spy films, then Agent Vinod is worth a watch.

Pooja Bedi and Sky caught getting intimate!

Pooja Bedi and Sky reportedly threw caution to the winds and indulged in public display of affection while celebrating Holi recently.

We hear that at the Holi bash hosted by the yesteryear villain Ranjeet last week, Pooja Bedi and Sky (Akashdeep Sehgal) were seen getting intimate by the side of a pool. The two were reportedly spotted kissing and cared not a hoot for the onlookers.

Pooja Bedi even tweeted a picture of her celebrating with Sky.

The two became close during their stint in Bigg Boss 5, where Sky was in almost everyone’s bad books, save for Pooja Bedi who remained a unwavering supporter of him. After the show got over, the two remained in touch and were seen together at the launch of Dabboo Ratnani’s calendar. Since then there have been many occasions when the duo has been spotted together, though neither Pooja Bedi nor Akashdeep has confirmed their romance.

Pooja Bedi has been married once and divorced. She has had a string of relationships but none of them worked out. Whether her relationship with Sky will meet a different fate remains to be seen.

Ranveer Singh suffers back injury

Bollywood’s brush with injuries continues! The youthful actor Ranveer Singh has injured his back badly while shooting for his upcoming film Lootera, which also stars Sonakshi Sinha.

Reports suggest that Ranveer Singh got injured on Saturday itself, and, mistakenly taking it as a minor injury, he continued shooting for his movie! However, on Tuesday, the pain in his back became intolerable and Ranveer had no other option but to discontinue the shoot!

He was then taken to a doctor in Pathan Court, where after a MRI scan it was revealed that he has suffered an injury in his lower back and has been advised complete bed rest for the next two weeks and has also been kept under medical observation!

The 26-year-old actor is still in Dalhousie and it is not known as to when he would be fit again to resume the shooting of his film! About the film, Lootera is being directed and co-produced by Vikramaditya Motwane, and stars Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead roles!

We hope for Ranveer’s speedy recovery.

Shahid and Nargis are Bollywood’s new love birds...

Rumour has it that Cupid’s blue-eyed boy Shahid Kapoor and the Rockstar girl Nargis Fakhri are the new love birds in Bollywood.

It’s no secret that Nargis Fakhri was a special guest at the four-day long wild birthday celebration Shahid Kapoor had at Morjim beach in Goa last month. She was reportedly seen frolicking around the pool in swimsuits. However, Shahid and Nargis took caution not to be seen together, and that’s what got the tongues wagging.

Now, rumour has it that Shahid Kapoor and Nargis Fakhri are indeed an item. What started off as a friendship between the two has now turned into a fledgling romance and both are learnt to be giving it time to ripen.

According to reports, Shahid and Nargis have been spending a lot of quality time with each other lately. The attraction between the two that started in Goa has now only grown after their return to Mumbai.

Yet, it remains to be seen how long this relationship lasts. Shahid Kapoor is known to move on from women pretty fast. He’s rumoured to have had a fling with Vidya Balan in the Kismat Konnection days, followed by a romance with Priyanka Chopra that ended last year. Since then he’s been linked with Bipasha Basu and Anushka Sharma, but his link-up with Nargis Fakhri sounds most credible yet.

Nargis, on the other hand, has been linked up with her Rockstar co-star Ranbir Kapoor and later on with model Shyan Munshi.

Looks like this time Shahid has met his match in Nargis!

Bebo may become Begum of Pataudi by 2012 end...

Finally, Kareena Kapoor has opened up about the subject of her marriage with boyfriend Saif Ali Khan. She has confirmed that she plans to settle down by the end of this year.

The confirmation came from Kareena Kapoor herself at the India Today Conclave 2012 in New Delhi. When asked when she plans to get married with Saif Ali Khan, Kareena did not evade the question and gave a frank reply: “Hopefully, by the end of this year.”

Kareena added that she is in no rush to get married and there are still some Bollywood commitments to fulfil.

“I am working on Heroine and I need to finish the film first. But we're not going to announce the date yet. I don't understand why the entire nation is in a hurry to make me the Begum of Pataudi. There's no rush. Obviously people have to be patient,” Kareena Kapoor said.

Since the start of 2012, there have been rumours about Kareena and Saif planning to wed by March end after the release of their film Agent Vinod. In fact, there have lately been rumours that Kareena Kapoor is already pregnant -- after she was spotted with a baby bump -- but it turned out that the bump was for her role in Heroine.

Kareena, 31, is presently in the prime of her career. She has worked with every male superstar in Bollywood. Last year she was seen in films with both Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan. This year, she’s looking forward to her film Talaash with Aamir Khan.

Saif, 41, is married once and divorced. He has two children from his previous marriage with actress Amrita Singh. Saif and Kareena began dating while shooting for their film Tashan (in 2007) which didn’t do well at box office. Lately, Kareena has been spotted at all the important family functions of Saif Ali Khan. She was there when Saif was made the 10th Nawab of Pataudi.

Sonam Kapoor into technology!!

Actress Sonam Kapoor feels that she cannot do away with technology being part of generation next.

The 26-year-old actress was here at the FICCI frames event here today to light the lamp at the inaugural session.

“There are lot of benefits of such forums... like one gets to know about trends in the film industry, piracy, content, media, technology and various other things. I think being part of today’s generation I can’t do away with technology.. be it anything,” Sonam told reporters here.

“I am happy and excited. This is the second time I have been asked to speak at this forum but I could not do it due to some reasons.It (FICCI-Frames) is an auspicious occasion and a great one the for film industry,” Sonam said.

The ‘Aisha’ star is likely to feature in her sister-producer, Rhea Kapoor’s upcoming film, ‘Herogiri’.

“My sister is going to make a film based on a book titled ‘Herogiri’. We have patented the book and this is for the first time that something of this sort has happened. With this there would be no discussion or issue about the title, or stealing of content or creative idea,” she said.

Amy, Prateik get each other’s names inked

Even though Amy Jackson claims she’s still looking for her Prince Charming, the Ek Tha Deewana actress has gone ahead and gotten beau Prateik’s name tatooed on her arm and vice versa.

The couple, who have been dodging the dating question for a while, seem to have finally sealed their relationship. Sources say they had a conversation about getting tattoos and what they would say, but wanted to surprise each other. So while Amy got hers done on holiday back home in England, Prateik got his done in Mumbai when she was away. Amy’s tat reads, ” Mera Pyaar Mera Prateik”, while Prateik’s reads, “Mera Pyaar Meri Amy”.

Rakhi Sawant Visits Parliament

Rakhi Sawant visits Parliament.

Irrespective of what she does, Rakhi Sawant is never out of news. She once again hit headlines as she visited the Parliament on the opening day of the budget session.

Rakhi Sawant caught the attention of everyone as she walked into the parliament because whereas you can expect her to do something as extraordinary as contesting the elections and campaigning for various candidates because it brings her some publicity, you do not expect her to attend the proceedings of the two houses, on a day when the President is to address the two houses and the political situation of the country is also tense.

So, what was Rakhi Sawant doing in Parliament on such a vital day of the budget session? When asked Rakhi Sawant said, “No one invited me here. I just came to meet the MPs. I wanted to see how our Parliament and our leaders work.”

Rakhi Sawant added, “I’ve come to convey the message to Soniaji on behalf of all the people and especially women that there should be something for women in the budget and it should be fair to everyone,”

Rakhi Sawant has also been a big admirer of Rahul Gandhi.

Though Rakhi Sawant is not associated with politics in anyway, her decision to visit the Parliament is not very surprising. After all, it is often alleged that Rakhi Sawant is known for shouting at everyone including her producers just the way our MPs shout inside the house. Rakhi Sawant might have felt at home watching the MPs work.

Catch the latest romantic song from ‘Agent Vinod’..

Here is the latest romantic number from Agent Vinod, titled “Raabta”. Well, if you are wondering what “Raabta” means, It’s an Urdu word meaning to relate or connect.
The song begins with Saif telling Kareena, “Tumahri aankhen kisi ka katl kar sakti hain..par tum kisi ka katl nahi kar sakti..You don’t have the eyes of a killer.” What a chemistry, seriously. It literally scorches the screen.
Kareena in the song looks so very simple yet beautiful, while Saif is a born charmer. Lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya, music by Pritam and sung by Arijit Singh, the song has already become a big hit among music lovers.
Listen to the song and let us know what you think.

Shahrukh and Salman in the race to play Lord Krishna?

Akshay Kumar is in search of Lord Krishna for his home production ‘Oh My God’. The actor himself was all set to play the role of Lord Krishna. However, things didn’t work as planned. He is now looking for someone who can replace him.
Now, buzz has it that the rival Khans Salman and SRK are top contenders. Says a source, “Since Akshay will be busy with other film commitments, he and Ashvini Yardi (the director) plan to approach either SRK or Salman for the role, depending on who is available.”
The film was planned more than two years ago. It is an adaptation of Paresh Rawal’s Hindi play Krishna vs Kanhaiya.
Adds the source, “Till Akshay was playing the role, they were sure what they wanted. But now since that has changed the director is more than willing to change the script to suit the star.
Both Salman and SRK will bring in a very different kind of personality towards the role and it only makes sense to write the dialogues accordingly.”
The director of the film, Ashwini has worked with both the Khans and is very confident of bringing at least one of them on board.
The source says, “Ashvini has been friends with both Salman and SRK and therefore there is every possibility that they might come on board.”
However, we wonder if either of the Khans will have the time to essay the role.

Sonam Kapoor’s love for food!!

Bollywood fashionista Sonam Kapoor, is a big time foodie. She simply can’t resist food. Her life revolves around it.
“My whole life revolves around food. While having breakfast I think what I should have for lunch while having lunch I think what I should eat for dinner,” Sonam told. The actress unveiled “Wassup! Andheri”, a three-day art and entertainment festival in the Andheri suburb.
This glamorous Punjabi kudi loves to feed people. She said: “I am a Punjabi and the whole point is I love feeding people and I love getting fed.”
Sonam before joing films, weighed 80 Kgs. She had to shed oodles of it before she starred in Sanjay Leela Bhansli’s “Saawariyan”.
It is heard that her dietitian has a tough time tackling Sonam.
“My dietician has been working on me for quite some time and she has been unsuccessful,” the 26-year-old said.

Sallu-Kat look magical together!

After a long gap of four years, we will see Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif share screen space opposite each other in their upcoming flick, Ek Tha Tiger, directed by Kabir Khan.

The director is very impressed with the chemistry the duo share in the film. He says, Kats and Salman, together look magical on screen.

“Salman Khan and Katrina are wonderful together, they are magical. Once you see them on screen, yhanou will know how magical there chemistry is,” Kabir Khan said.

Khan added, “We have shot 90 percent of the film. Rest 10 percent will be shot soon. I can’t reveal where we will be shooting our last schedule though. The film is almost ready for the August Eid release.”

Well, will ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ have an item number, now that item songs play an important rle in film, Kabir said: “There might be. I can’t talk too much about it at the moment.”

Nargis Fakhri signs her second film

If reports are to be believed, Rockstar heroine, Nargis Fakhri will be seen in Nikhil Advani next. Well, the actress will be cast opposite the handsome Arjun rampal.
Nargis was in Goa with Shahid Kapoor, to celebrate his birthday. If rumors are to be believed, Shahid is said to be dating the Rockstar lady.
Reports also have it that Fakhri will be playing the lead role opposite Shahid Kapoor in the movie that will be scripted by Abbas Tyrewala and produced by Tips.

‘Kolaveri Di’ sensation Dhanush to romance Sonam Kapoor!

Dhanush the ‘Kolaveri Di’ sensation is all set to romance Sonam kapoor in his upcoming flick Raanjhana.
Sonam and Dhanush will make a fresh on screen pair. Sonam’s spokesperson also confirms it to a daily, “She has been offered this film opposite Dhanush.” However, Sonam is not very sure about doing the film as she is all committed to two Bollywood films. She will have to adjust her dates in order to accommodate the third one.
Directed by the Tanu weds Manu fame, Aanand L Rai, Raanjhana is a love story, set against the backdrop of Banaras. The film will revolve around Delhi, Punjab, Chennai, etc.
Why Dhanush??
Well, a very simple and ordinary looking character was needed for the role and Dhanush fits the bill perfectly. The actor is now learning Hindi for the film. He says that the language is not that big a problem as much as the culture is.
Well, lets wait and see if Sonams gives a nod to the film.

Salman invites Ranbir for lunch

The cold vibes that Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor have shared ever since the former was involved with the latter’s ex flame Katrina Kaif is a common knowledge to the fans. So it was a bit surprising to see the two hunks bonding over food at Mehboob Studios.

By coincidence, Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor were shooting their respective films at Mehboob studios when they bumped into each other. However, no cold shoulder was turned and no glowering glances cast or exchanged. What rather transpired had the onlookers transfixed.

Ranbir and Salman met up cordially, exchanged the greetings and Sallu invited Ranbir over for lunch at the studio itself. Then the two bonded over food, though away from the prying eyes of the onlookers. What they talked about is a matter of speculation and juicy fodder for rumour mills.

Salman and Ranbir were on very good terms until the news of Ranbir’s growing closeness to Katrina Kaif emerged during the release of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and the making of Raajneeti. However, the spat never spilled out in the open and kept simmering beneath the surface. Ranbir Kapoor even did an item song for the Salman Khan-produced film Chillar Party, but the song did not feature in the film and was used only for promotional purpose. Buzz is that Salman got the song axed from the film.

Whatever their history, it’s good to see Salman Khan and Ranbir Kapoor bonding at last.

New stills: Kat and Shahrukh’s sweet romance in Yash Chopra’s film



The king of romance Shahrukh Khan is all set to romance Bollywood’s most beautiful woman, Katrina Kaif in Yash Chopra’s untitled flick, which also has Anushka Sharma, playing a pivotal role. Yashji is back to direction after seven long years.

The pictures from the sets of the film is enough to guess the amount of romance in the film. The fact that it’s a

Yash Chopra film, and SRK, the romantic king playing the lead, says it all.

Yash ji proudly says, “Everyone knows that when I make a movie, Shahrukh will be involved with it. He is like family to YRF and I have always regarded him as one of my own.”

Yash ji also has an important thing to say about the film, “This is a film which is classic in its look but contemporary in its language. A film which I’m making on one simple faith… the love that my audiences have given to me over the years. They have tolerated my indulgences for the past 50 years, 

I’m sure they will indulge me one more time.”

The movie is scheduled for a Diwali 2012 release.

‘London, Paris, New York’ makes superb business overseas!

Not in India but overseas, debutant director Anu Menon’s London, Paris, New York, seems to have won many hearts. The film stars Ali Zafar and Aditi Rao Hydari in the lead.

Middle East saw a collection of $112,000, while theaters in the US collected $53,535, on its opening weekend. Beating films like Band Baaja Baarat (25,000 pounds), Tanu Weds Manu (28,000 pounds) and Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na (30,000 pounds), London, Paris, New York collected approximately 32,538 pounds.

“‘London Paris New York’ is a small budget film that was targeted at a niche audience. We are happy that the film is being so well revived, especially by audiences it was made for – having kept the budget under control, we’ve managed to deliver on that front and we couldn’t be more excited,” said Vijay Singh,

CEO Fox Studios India, in a statement.

Bebo’s baby bump!

Madhur Bhandarkar tweeted, “On the sets of #Heroine, #Kareena with her very efficient team.”

But soon he squashed all speculations and posted another tweet: “Guys lets not speculate. Its for REEL & not real!!! Its for a scene in my film #Heroine. Its FAKE!!!”

Kareena named Mahi Arora in the film essays a very edgy, contemporary and hard-hitting role.

Heroine is set to release on September 14.

Singer Sunidhi Chauhan to tie the knot…

Reports have it that singer Sunidhi Chauhan is all set to enter matrimonial bliss with budding music director Hitesh Sonik. Well, Hitesh is the guy who composed music for films like ‘My Friend Pinto’, ‘Pyaar ka Punchnama’,and ‘Stanley ka Dabba’.

Sunidhi confirmed the news, “Yes it is true and we will be getting married very soon but we are yet to fix a date. Hitesh has been a music arranger first and is now a music director.”

The singer has had a failed marriage previously. She and Hitesh have been dating each other from the past one and a half years. Buzz has it that the couple are planning to tie the knot sometime next month, in Mumbai.

A source revealed, “Sunidhi has always been very protective about her personal life. Although she was earlier married to Bobby Khan, brother of choreographer and director Ahmed Khan, she has never spoken about it in the media.


Sunidhi has slowly but surely climbed the popularity charts as one of the top singers of the country. She met Hitesh professionally a couple of years back, and the two have been dating since over a year. It was only last month they finalised they would be getting married.”

Salman Is A Friend But I Never Used Him As A Ladder For Success, Says Kangana Ranaut

Bollywood Diva Kangana Ranaut doesn’t deny her friendship with Salman Khan but makes it clear that she has never used him for achieving success in Bollywood.

“Salman is a good friend but I never looked at him as a ladder for my success in tinsel town. He has seen me succeding on my own and he respects it”, Said Kangana.

The outspoken nature of Kangana has landed her in controversies many a times. She spoilt her relationship with Hritik Roshan during ‘Kites’ and she rubbed Ajay Devgan wrong way as well.

“I do not have a film background, neither have I any godfather in this industry.  I have given hit films without working with any of the Khans. Even then, I would love to work with the Khan brigade”, added Kangana.

Kangana’s upcoming films include ‘krrish2’, ‘shootout at wadala’ and the sequel of ‘Once upon a time in Mumbai’.

Veena Malik to star opposite Ashmit Patel in ‘Supermodel’

Veena Malik has just signed a contract for a Bollywood film, in which she will be paired opposite Indian actor and rumoured ex-flame Ashmit Patel.

 The 25-year-old insisted that the film titled ‘Supermodel’ would showcase the sizzling chemistry between her and Patel.

“This is where people will get to see the rocking chemistry between Ashmit Patel and myself, long after the ‘Bigg Boss’ episode,” the Express Tribune quoted Malik as saying.

“It will be shot in Australia and the Fiji Island and since I love travelling, it will be super fun,” she added.

Reportedly, Malik also has plans to be part of a few Indian fashion shows as well.

John Abraham in an LTTE Film `Jaffna`




Just when one thought John Abraham has left behind his experimental phase of ‘No Smoking’ and ‘Kabul Express’, the actor has agreed to work in ‘Jaffna’, a political thriller about LTTE`s activities in Sri Lanka.







The film will be directed by Shoojit Sircar, who has just wrapped up the shooting of ‘Vicky Donor’, which is his breezy satire on sperm donation, featuring veejay Ayushmaan in the lead. And John has co-produced the film.

"John is a politically aware actor. He reads the newspaper every morning, knows what`s going on in the world. He is clued in to the dynamics of the separatist strife in Sri Lanka. The minute I told him about my film `Jaffna`, he was on board," said Sircar.

John will produce "Jaffna" as well.

Not willing to divulge too many details at the moment, Sircar says it`s a political thriller set in the troubled violence-ridden city of Jaffna.

John would be in and out of Sri Lanka in the coming months to get a hang of the political situation in the pretty little country.

"I am no stranger to themes of separatism and extremist violence. My first film `Yahaan` was about Kashmiri separatism. And now `Jaffna` would be carrying the theme of extremism to another extreme," said Sircar.

Mani Ratnam`s Tamil film ‘Kannathil Muttumital’ with R. Madhavan in the lead is one of the notable films on the LTTE.

"But that was a love story set against the LTTE backdrop. My film is a political thriller," asserts Sircar.

Though not willing to divulge too many details on John`s character, the director hinted that the actor would require a great deal of preparation for his part.

"John believes in `Jaffna`, as much as he believes in `Vicky Donor`. That`s why he stepped in to produce both the projects. He saw the full film `Vicky Donor` and was completely kicked by it. He thinks Ayushmaan is a star in the making. I can`t deny Ayushmaan has given an absolutely natural performance and even composed a track, a love ballad, for `Vicky Donor`," said the director.

"We shot the film in Delhi, my hometown and Ayushmaan`s. I know scores of films are shot in the capital. But I`d like to think I`ve captured Delhi like no one before," he added.

John would be going all-out to generate awareness about sperm donation in the weeks preceding the release of ‘Vicky Donor’. He will also be shooting a promotional video with Shoojit Sircar.

"It`s not an item song, as reported in a section of the film. Please! `Vickey Donor` is a humorous take on sperm donation. Where would an item song fit in? John is doing a promotional video on why sperm donation is not something to be giggled about behind closed doors," said Sircar, whose "Johnny Mastana" didn`t find favours.

Big B to start shooting for KBC 6

After his prolonged stay at the hospital because of his two abdominal surgeries, it wasn’t expected that the superstar Amitabh Bachchan will so soon think of resuming work. But with his undeterred zest, Big B is raring to return to action. He will soon start shooting for the promos of the new season of his superhit TV show Kaun Banega Crorepati.

Yes, it’s happening! Amitabh Bachchan will host the sixth season of the television show Kaun Banega Crorepati that will go on air in mid 2012. But he will shoot for the promos first. Quizmaster and producer of KBC, Siddharth Basu has confirmed the news and told a daily, “Yes, Mr Bachchan will host the forthcoming season of KBC. I intend working with him on this show even for the seventh season.”

KBC is synonymous with Amitabh Bachchan; the actor signed a two-year contract with KBC in 2011. As a source says, people wondered whether he would be able to take up the assignment of hosting a daily television show after the two hernia surgeries. But now, Big B has confirmed with the broadcasters that he is game for the show which earned him so much fame and respect.

The veteran actor returned to his home from hospital on Feb 23. He was admitted to the Seven Hills Hospital on Feb 11 and had to undergo two abdominal surgeries, following which he complained of acute pain and was kept under observation. Now, Amitabh Bachchan is doing fine but is advised rest.

Bollywood divas queue up for Mandakini's role in OUATIM-2

After the success of 'The Dirty Picture', Bollywood leading actresses are keen to associate themselves with filmmaker Milan Lutharia as these ladies are fighting to play the character inspired by yesteryear's actress Mandakini in 'Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai 2'.

As per the reports, the B-Town divas are keen to play Dawood's girl in the movie as many of them have claimed to play the female lead. Earlier, actress Kareena Kapoor has said that she will do the waterfall scene like the one Mandakini did in her grandfather's (Raj Kapoor) movie 'Ram Teri Ganga Maili'.

But later she stepped out and then there were rumours that Deepika Padukone will replace her. Now according to the latest updates, Kangana Ranaut, who played Haji-Mustan's on-screen girlfriend in the prequel, may once again be seen in 'Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai 2'.

Putting full-stop to these rumours, director of the movie Milan Lutharia has denied that he has approached the above mentioned actresses. He said that he is flattered that such talented ladies are claiming to be the part of OUATIM-2.

Milan further said that currently he is writing a script and after completing it he will start his hunt for the leading lady. Milan also clarified that Kangana is not a part of the film.
