I am not married to Aditya Chopra, Rani Mukherjee

The bong beauty Rani Mukherjee cleared the weather about her wedding to filmmaker Aditya Chopra. It is heard that the people at Yash Raj studio address her as bhabi and rumor also erupt that Rani Mukherjee is using Yash Raj studio for the promotion of her new release ‘Aiyya’. Rani is behaving as she is the owner of the YRF. It is also heard that the staff could not stand her tantrums at times.
Some insider informed that Rani Mukherjee has been secretly married to Aditya Chopra. But the actress denied the rumor in the following words, “I don’t know what people call me behind my back. People may b***h or praise me, but unless it’s to my face, I cannot comment on it. And on record, I say this: I am not married.”

Slamming all reports about her marriage, Rani said, “That is an irresponsible rumour. I am a girl from a respectable family that would take pride in their daughter’s marriage. They don’t need to lie. I have been brought up with lots of love and respect and such rumours affect my family.”

Expressing her thoughts about marriage, Rani said, “Marriage is a sacred thing. When I decide to get married, I’ll do it in a respectful manner and not in a covert way. Anything that is hidden or has a clandestine approach to it is an affair, not a marriage. You can’t hide a marriage. When I tie the knot, I’ll tell the world.”
It is not very long that Rani and Aditya are flaunting their relationship in public. The couple has been snapped couple of times at Mumbai airport together. Adi also gifted Rani a expensive car worth Rs crore. Very soon Aditya Chopra’s divorce case is going to settle and it is expected that both are planning to get hitched. Adi has divorced his childhood sweetheart Payal against the wish of his family.
Rani and Aditya very often spotted spending time together in a restaurant. When he was shooting in London for 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' Rani paid a visit to Adi in London.

Katrina to play Hrithik’s ladylove in a Hollywood remake

Bollywood hunk Hrithik Roshan will be seen romancing beautiful Katrina Kaif in the Hindi remake of Hollywood film, ‘Knight and Day’ starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz in the lead role. This Hollywood movie was directed by James Mangold down West and the film had received mixed response there.

Now, Fox Star Studios has decided to get the official rights to remake the film in Hindi. The Bollywood version will have altogether new twists and turns and very much different storyline than the Hollywood.

“We are making that film in Hindi. I can't talk much about the project as it is too early,” Vivek Krishnani, Fox Star Studios, Head of Distribution -- marketing and syndication, said.
Hrithik who is working on his home production ‘Krrish 3’ will step into the role of Tom Cruise and Katrina will play the role of Cameron Diaz. “We have signed Hrithik and Katrina for the Hindi remake of the film,” Krishnani said.

Hrithik and Katrina starred together in Zoya Akhar’s movie ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’ and the movie won huge accolades and awards. “The film will be directed by Siddharth Anand and will go on floors next year,” he said.

Siddharth Anand directed 'Anjaana Anjaani' released in 2010 starring Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor.
A source close to the project told the media, “The film is scheduled to go on floors early next year,” and Hrithik is set to start shooting for the film after he wraps up Krrish 3.

Dhoom 3 gets Australian actress on board

Dhoom 3 has a new cast member. The Australian actor Tabrett Bethell is the new attraction.
On Thursday night, Uday Chopra, tweeted, “Please welcome the lovely Tabrett Bethell who joins the cast of Dhoom 3 today.”
She will join the cast of Amir Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Uday Chopra in the action thriller flick. The foreign recruits in the cast include, Paul D. Morgan, Arthur-Angelo Sarinas, Kim DeJesus, Rocky Rector and Keira McCarthy.
The looks of the movie and the star cast is giving it a complete international feel. The technicians, stunt men are all foreigners. The film is being shot at Chicago, USA. The buzz is around the film is growing with each passing day. It’s going to be released next year on Diwali.
Speaking about Tabrett Bethell, she is a leading actress in Australia. She has worked in the television series Legend of the Seeker, essaying the character of Cara. Tabrett started her career as a model at the age of 16. In 2010 she was part of James Rabbitts's 2010 Australian thriller The Clinic. The Clinic was based on real life stories. In August 2010 she won Best Actress at the Manhattan Film Festival for her role in Anyone You Wan. In addition to that she was also the cheerleader for the Australian Rugby team. She was also associated with the Chadwick Model Agency.
While the latest news from Dhoom 3 is that it’s shooting has begun again. Last week it got stalled, because the necessary permission was not there. There was a weekend water and air show, due to which the film was not allowed to be shot. However Amir stepped in. Using his huge star power he convinced the mayor of Chicago, Mr. Rahm Emanuel. The team readily got the permission after that.
Rafiq Gangjee, of YRF said, “The shooting wasn’t stalled for four-five days. It was just a weekend when we could not shoot the action sequences because of an air and water show. The police did not give us permission to shoot on the roads that weekend. The shooting is going on very well post that.”
Meanwhile it is also being said that Dhoom 3 will be released in the superior IMAX format. Speaking on that Yash Chopra said, “IMAX has always symbolized high quality film entertainment and experience and this vision of the company works very well with the ethos of YRF, which has been synonymous with Indian film entertainment over the last four decade.”

Guess who wanted Deepika to miss Ranbir’s birthday bash?

Ranbir Kapoorcelebrated his 30th birthday on September 27th. However the birthday bash did have that extra spice that it required.
His ex-flames Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif were both present at the party. One wonders how they would have greeted each other, when they were face-to-face. Apparently the rumor going around is that, Katrina didn’t want Deepika to attend the party. Though Katrina continues to say to the media that she is ‘very much single’, her actions say otherwise.
A source revealed the secret, saying “There is nothing between Deepika and Ranbir currently. They are co-stars in Yeh Jaawani Hai Deewani and share a cordial relation. It is clear that Ranbir has moved on in life. However, Kat allegedly didn't fancy having Deepu at RK's party because she is still threatened by her presence.”
Deepika had been shooting the whole day with Ranbir for Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani ’. So it would have been quite obviously rude had she not been invited to the party. The source further said, “Just imagine how odd it would've looked if Katrina and Anushka were at the party. And Deepika, who was shooting with Ranbir all through the day, wasn't included. In fact, Deepika and Ranbir maintain that they are friends and Deepu's not being at the party would definitely send out the wrong signals.”
In fact the party was also arranged by Ayan Mukerji and Arti Shetty. Arti is the daughter of producer Manmohan Shetty and she is also said to be close to Ranbir.
Deepika had also attended Ranbir’s 29th birthday celebrations last year. Also she continues to have the tattoo RK, around her neck. The RK means Ranbir Kapoor. Seems she still has a soft corner for Ranbir in her heart. Which Katrina is quite aware of, and would be the reason she didn’t want Deepika to be near to Ranbir for too long.
The other people to attend the party were, Anuskha Sharma, who would be working with Ranbir in the movie Bombay Velvet. Arjun Kapoor was also present, so were Anurag Kashyap and his actress wife Kalki Koechlin .Karan Johar, whose Dharma productions is producing ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani’ was there. The Barfi! Team of UTV CEO Siddharth Roy Kapur, Anurag Basu and music director Pritam were also present. However, strange enough, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor, Ranbir’s parents were missing from the party scene.

OMG! Oh My God strikes a chord with the audience

OMG! Oh My God is really a cinematic pleasure. One wonders why, we don’t get stuff like these more often nowadays? Akshay too looks refreshing, after the over the top ‘Rowdy Rathore’ and megaflop ‘Joker’.
But the man who steals the show is Paresh Rawal. At 62, the veteran actor still packs a punch with his terrific acting. His comic timing is the most incredible in this movie.
The audience too is happy with the movie and has given it thumbs up. Akib from Lucknow said, “It is indeed refreshing. The best part of OMG is that it sticks to a proper storyline with powerful narrative without compromising on the Entertainment values. It is a film with a message but it’s definitely not preachy. Paresh Rawal is an actor with one of the finest comic timings in the country and addition of Akki only acts as icing on the cake. Akshay, in his sort of extended guest appearance, is pleasing and soothing to eyes. I would really look forward if he manages to bag full fledged roles with such characterization. Last word: - While OMG goes straight into your heart; it never asks you to leave your brains behind in compensation. Watch it with you full family.”
While Arvind from Dehradun says, “After a long time we have such a wonderful movie to watch”
India is a deeply religious country. Where we learn to fear God as soon as we are born. This sentiment has been misused by a lot of people. Politicians, fake sadhus, fake NGOs and organizers of religious customs have all taken advantage of our sentiments. OMG! Oh My God is daring enough, when it challenges this commercialization of the religious customs prevalent in our country.
OMG begins as a fanciful story. We see Kanji Lalji Mehta (Paresh Rawal), a wealthy businessman, who deals in selling idols of gods and goddess. However Kanjibhai is himself a disbeliever. For him money is his God. After a holy trip from Haridwar, things go wary. An earthquake takes place and Kanjibhai’s shop is destroyed. The insurance company refuses to give compensation as they say it’s an act of God.
In his anger Kanjibhai sues God. At the beginning it seems quite hilarious for a man suing God. But later when Kanji peruses his own case, saying that he used to make a good business only because of the blind faith in God. Kanji really makes the judge as well as the audience think. Is our faith in God really blind? However for Kanjibhai to see some sense, God (Akshay Kumar), himself comes down to earth.
For people who still have a balanced head this movie is worth the watch.

The top 10 leading ladies of Indian cinema

Bollywood has witnessed an influx of beautiful and charming female actors, right from its inception, who have contributed heavily in making it hugely popular. They have charted their own space in a largely male-dominated industry through their great personality both off-screen and on-screen. These actresses had the stardom and talent to give even the men a run for their money. Let us take a look at these iconic actresses who over these years have helped Bollywood evolve.
Madhuri Dixit-
The woman who is known as the ‘dancing queen’ of Bollywood is Madhuri Dixit. And it was not only because of her dance numbers and her inimitable expressions but for her acting talent that she made a mark in Bollywood. She has worked in the industry for about two and a half decades and has played varied characters. She has been an actor who had a blend of beauty, personality, unmatched dancing skills, acting talent and a box-office pull.
Madhubala made a mark in Bollywood in the days of black and white films. However, this did not stop her beauty from showing through. She also had fine acting skills that made the headlines. Mughal-e-Azam is still a film that people associate with Madhubala.
Sadly, she had a premature death. Her absence has made an irrevocable vacancy in Bollywood.
Nargis was the first woman to have appeared in the legendary film-maker Raj Kapoor’s films. She has been known for her performance in classics like ‘Barsaat’, ‘Shree 420’, and ‘Chori Chori’. In her times, she was also recognised abroad. The film that will forever be remembered by her admirers is ‘Mother India’ which released in 1957.
Sridevi was Madhuri’s contemporary and was the only one who had the talent to give her some tough competition. She was a versatile actor and this is evident in her choice of films like Chaalbaaz, Chandni, Mr. India, Sadma and so on.
Now she is making a comeback with the film “English Vinglish” which is one of the highly expected films of this year.
Smita Patil-
Late Smita Patil was a woman of substance. She did films that were unconventional. Her acting skills are unparalleled in the industry. She got into the skin of her characters effortlessly. In films like Arth, Mirch Masala and Bhumika she stood out for her acting ability.
Rekha is the epitome of beauty. Her strong personality shows through. She is self-made. She is known for her unmatched acting skills. She has been very private about her personal life and the media has learnt to respect that. She is this nation’s living legend and a force to reckon with.
Meena Kumari-
Meena Kumari mostly did tragedies and ironically this reflected her real life. Her personal life was tragic and she found solace in films which were an outlet to her inner emotions. She did a few light-hearted films as well to which she did full justice. It has been ages since her death but her memory will never fade from her audiences memories.
Waheeda Rehman-
She has never been portrayed as the glam doll in films. She did roles that had substance and this clearly reflects her ability to portray those characters with perfection.
Kajol is the daughter of yesteryear actress Tanuja. She mostly played non-glamorous characters in mainstream films. She is talented and a confident actress. She is married to actor Ajay Devgn but has still not bid adieu to films.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan-
Aishwarya is considered an embodiment of good looks but not at the cost of her acting abilities. She has done films like “Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam” and Devdas. She is also the first actress of her generation to put India on the global map. She thus has made Bollywood reach unknown territories.

Shweta Menon's delivery captured by director, cameramen

Former Miss India runner-up and topnotch actress of Malayalam cinema Shweta Menon gave birth to a baby girl on September 28th at 5:27 pm in Nanavati Nursing home in Mumbai.
Shweta’s husband director Srivatsan Menon captured Shweta’s four months of pregnancy, her delivery and will also capture her motherhood for an important part of Malayalam movie Kalimannu, directed by Blessy.
The team of Kalimannu were present at the labor room. The director and two cameramen captured her delivery. With the permission of the doctor, three camera was placed inside the labor room. Present indide the labor room was Shweta’s husband, director Blessy and the two cameramen.
Shweta was taken to the labor room around 4:45 pm and the delivery news came around 5: 27 pm. Blessy said, "The camera kept rolling for about 45 minutes, ending with a scene where Shwetha planted a gentle kiss on the newborn's forehead.

Kalimannu revolves the protagonist (Shweta Menon) with her baby, before and after it is born. The film has set a new standard of reality in the entertainment industry.

"I decided to do this because of the message the movie carries," Shweta said. "From conception to delivery, it has been a great experience. I was determined to give a natural birth", she added.
Cinematographer Ravi K Chandran said Shweta has always been a bold woman who took unusual and unpopular steps in her acting career. "She was proving that the delivery is just another natural event in the life cycle. At a time when using condoms was an unpopular practice, she acted in a condom advertisement. By appearing on the camera at her most private moment on Thursday, she was challenging the conventional practices in Indian cinema," said Chandran.

Blessy said his team was preparing for a week for the shoot in the labour room. "The shoot began when she was five months pregnant. In an age when pregnancy and motherhood is sometimes mechanical, the movie talks about a mother's relationship with her fetus," he said.
Bold step! Congrats Shweta for the newborn.

Kareena Kapoor planning motherhood!

Kareena Kapoor’s refusal to sign the no pregnancy clause on the papers of ‘Ram Leela’ gave rise to the rumor that Bebo is planning motherhood very soon after tying the knot with boyfriend and that’s the reason why she has not signed the no pregnancy clause. This is the second time Sanjay and Kareena had differences over ‘Ram Leela’. Sanjay Leela Bhansali after finalizing Bebo made up his mind to drop her due to her marital status. Sanjay does not want to cast a married actress in his film.

"The latest clause in the contracts of leading ladies (married, engaged or those in live-in relationships) specifies that the actress agree to not get pregnant during the time of the principal photography because filmmakers do not wish to sit on the set, minding the baby (pun intended) while their shooting is in progress. A reliable source tells us that Sanjay Leela Bhansali, like all practical filmmakers, reportedly wanted Kareena Kapoor to sign a contract with a clause that said she will not get pregnant during the making of Ram Leela," informs a source.
Initially, it was predicted that money was the reason of Bebo not being a part of the movie but later the truth came to forefront. "The bone of contention between Bebo and Bhansali wasn't the money; as is being speculated in the media. It is reportedly the pregnancy clause that Bebo refused to sign," a source told a daily.
Kareena’s loss is Deepika’s gain. Deepika Padukone has been signed for ‘Ram Leela’ opposite Ranveer Singh.
It seems Sanjay Leela Bhansali has learnt a good lesson from his contemporaries Madhur Bhandarkar. Madhur’s highly ambitious project ‘Heroine’ was about to shelve if Kareena did not come to his rescue. After signing Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, it is known that Ash was pregnant and following her pregnancy, she backed out of the project.

Veena Malik reveals intimate moment with ex Mohd Asif

Pakistani starlet who begun her new innings in India seems to be missing her ex beau Pakistani cricketer Mohd Asif. She remembers the days she spent with her ex-flame especially the foot massaging moments.
Recalling the days, Veena said, "Asif is the real man for me and I missed him a lot. He is out of all and the best moments which I spent with him that is a foot massage and I think he is better foot massager than a cricketer".

Veena Malik broke-up with Mohd Asif after his name surfaced in match fixing scandal. Veena Malik became popular in India after her Bigg Boss stinct. The show made her a well known name in Bollywood. She met with Ashmit Patel on the show and love blossomed between the two.
Even after the show ended, both remained in contact and maintained their relationship.
For posing naked for magazines cover shoot, fatwa was also issued against Veena Malik. Veena is currently doing a B-grade film ‘Supermodel’ opposite Ashmit Patel.

In 2012, Veena was ranked at No. 26 on FHM’s India "100 sexiest women list". Veena recently appeared in a lesbian video. She is filming ‘Dirty Picture’ in Kannada. She has a special appearance in Hindi film Mr.Money.

Big fight between Akshay and Salman next Eid

Akshay Kumar has got competition during Eid next year. It’s from big boss Salman Khan. Actually Akshay’s movie Once Upon A Time in Mumbai2 is supposed to be releasing during the Eid 2013.
However it has come to light now that Sohail Khan has acquired the rights of a South Indian movie. He is planning to cast Salman in that movie and would be releasing it during Eid next year. The reasons for an Eid release are obvious. Salman four back-to-back releases on Eid have been highly successful. It started with Wanted in 2009, followed by Dabangg (2010), Bodyguard (2011) and Ek Tha Tiger (2012).

A source said, “Salman has had an amazing track record with four back-to-back hits on Eid. The name of the South remake is being kept under wraps till a formal announcement is made.”
However it can be noted that Salman’s own family is very secular. They have Muslim, Hindu and Christian members in their large family, which stays together in Bandra, Mumbai. Speaking on that, Salim Khan the head of the family had once said, “You know I have never believed in any ritual. So on Eid, there is nothing special happening at home. Yes, my wife Salma gets some traditional items cooked; the children and the grandchildren come here and friends drop in.”
But for Salman it’s different. He says, “I'm an entertainer. And my fans want nothing more than for me to give them a good film each year on this day.” That’s certainly true.

The question is can Akshay who has his own fan following, survive the Salman onslaught? Once Upon a time In Mumbai was quite successful.  In the sequel Akshay is supposed to play the role of Dawood Ibrahim, which was played by Emraan Hashmi in the prequel. The other members in the casting are Imran Khan, Sonakshi Sinha and Sonali Bendre. The film is directed by Milan Lutria and the producer is Balaji Telefilms. It’s supposed to be Akshay’s one of the biggest movies. Akshay’s next movie Khiladi 786 release was scheduled to be on 7th December. But it seems now it is postponed for the time being.

May be Salman is also wary of this big clash. He hasn’t said anything on that yet as it is almost a year ahead from now. Well, the fans can hardly wait for the big two to clash on screen.

Anurag Basu defends plagiarism charges against Barfi!

Barfi! the official entry to the Oscar in foreign film category drew criticism for being plagiarism. The members of the Oscar committee are criticized for choosing Barfi to represent Indian movies at the Academy Awards this year. There are scenes in the movie where Ranbir Kapoor depicted Charlie Chaplin but Anurag Basu defends his film and pinning high hopes for the film's success.
Defending his film, director Anurag Basu said, “It baffles me why people are not appreciating the original plot, screenplay, characters and situations. The other films that are contenders for the Oscars are really good films. I am very privileged to be in that group. I paid homage to the films and filmmakers that I grew up watching”
Allegations about ‘Barfi!’ is that few portions are straightway lifted from Charlie Chaplin films and other films such as ‘The Notebook’ and ‘Amelie’, Basu is firm about his work, he said, “I don’t think they’re replicas, to begin with. Before the film released, I had said that I have taken inspiration from Chaplin. I never hid that fact. If Oscar winners like ‘The Artist’ (2011) can take inspiration, why can’t we?”

He further added, “Martin Scorcese and Quentin Tarantino have done the same. Does that make them thieves? Great moments of cinema that you`ve watched through the years, stay with you and come out in your work. It doesn`t mean you`re copying anyone. Thank God ‘The Artiste’ was not made by an Indian. If it had been, it would have never been nominated for the Oscar, let alone winning the award."
Meanwhile, Manju Borah, chairperson of Oscars committee, India, clarified, “Had we selected any other film, we would have got the same response. I’m not bothered. Watching 20 films back to back, then choosing the best, is a tough job. There’s no vested interest. We don’t care who the maker is or who the star is. It’s the product that matters. ‘Barfi!’, we genuinely believe, is worthy.”
She further added, “The maker didn’t conceal that from the audience. In the beginning, it says it’s inspired by Chaplin. Ranbir’s mannerism is Chaplinesque. But what you take away is purely ‘Barfi!’. We selected ‘Barfi!’ because of its treatment and freshness. It leaves you happy and hopeful. There’s no moment of sorrow. And every Oscar movie is about hope and happiness. In any case, every filmmaker is inspired by some cinema or some filmmaker.”

On being asked about the selection process, Borah said, “As per the Oscars committee rules, the 11-member jury have to comprise people associated with films, like a director, technicians etc. We all watch 20 Indian films in different languages. Barfi! didn’t get all 11 votes. But it was chosen by the majority. There were three films in the final round and to get the majority, we did a three-round dissection and selection.
“We had some brilliant films from the regional sections. But there can be only one winner”, she said.

Ameesha praises rival Kareena to the heavens

It’s very rare to see Heroines praise each other’s work but recently Ameesha Patel praised Kareena Kapoor to the heavens after watching Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Heroine’.  There was a time a when Bebo and Ameesha were not in good terms but let bygones be bygones and Ameesha feels that one should be happy with her present and not remember what happened in the past.
Ameesha has few projects in her bag and she is happy the way her future is taking shape. After watching ‘Heroine’, she feels that Kareena has really put her heart and soul to the film and performed exceptionally well.

Ameesha whose filmy career is not going great guns off late has bagged few promising roles and looking forward to it.
According to a source "Ameesha has taken upon one more project which she's very excited about."

But Ameesha maintains, "It's too early for me to comment on it as of now but yes, I'm very happy with the way things are moving ahead in my life and hopefully another announcement is in the pipeline pretty soon. Race 2 is all set for release in three months and hopefully Shortcut Romeo too will release around the same time." The source added: "Ameesha and Kuunal Goomer's home production Desi Magic will go on the floors on November 14 followed by a 30-day schedule in December in Dubai." Ameesha will have five releases between in 2013.
Though Madhur Bhandarkar’s ‘Heroine’ received mixed reviews from critics, Kareena Kapoor received huge applause for her performance. It is said to be the best performances of her filmy career.
‘Heroine’ is getting tough competition from Anurag Basu’s ‘Barfi!’ Both the movies are totally different. 'Barfi is about a simple life of a deaf and a dump played by Ranbir while 'Heroine' speaks about the journey of an actress, the ups and downs she goes though in her personal and professional life.

Next month as speculated, she is going to start a new innings of her life. She is going to get married to her boyfriend and actor Saif Ali Khan. The first film that will see the light of the day after her wedding will be Reema Kagti’s ‘Talaash’ starring Aamir Khan and Rani Mukherjee.

Yash Chopra says goodbye to direction

Veteran film maker Yash Chopra turned 80 on Thursday. It was indeed a moment to savor for the film industry and the entire country.

The director also received a special treat when he was interviewed by Shahrukh Khan in a small chit-chat. The conversation was around the life that Mr. Chopra has spent in Bollywood. The changing view of the industry through his eyes. How things have changed and also how Shahrukh’s career got a fillip under the YRF (Yash Raj Films) banner.

Yashji also declared that ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’, would be his last film as a director. He said, “Jab Tak Hai Jaan will be my last film as a director. I have got enough love in my 50 years of career. The industry has given me so much. Now I want to encourage and motivate young talent - be it actors, directors or other technicians. I feel accomplished today.”
Yash Chopra started his direction career with Dhool ka Phool in 1959. The movie was very successful. Later on he went on to direct movies which became epics. Like Deewar, which introduced the ‘angry young man’ Amitabh Bachchan. Chandni, Darr, Dil to Pagal hai, Veer Zaara. It’s an endless list of memorable movies.
Speaking on the immense love showered on him by the film fraternity and the films, he said, “This industry has given me so much. I am very much happy and satisfied with the film. This film has turned out better than my expectation. I don't want to do anything else. My wife has been complaining a lot. I want to make her happy and enjoy my life.”
Yashji also said that this film is the one in which he has put his soul. He also thanked his son Aditya Chopra for working as his assistant in this movie.
Yash Chopra wants this movie to be a dessert at the end of a sumptuous meal. He said, “Jis tarah aap khaane main apki sabsey man pasand dish sabsey last khaate ho waise hi Jab Tak Hai Jaan, I think, is that film which I want savor in last. I feel satisfied with Jab Tak Hai Jaan. It has given immense happiness."

He also thanked music director AR Rahman and Lyricist Gulzar. He said they are magicians. It’s Gulzar who actually gives words to his vision.

Ranbir Kapoor says, he is ready to get married

Barfi! Actor Ranbir Kapoor says he is ready to get married, if he finds the right person. Speaking to a Radio Jockey on Oye 104.8 FM, he said, “I always think that I will get true love in my life. I hope I can really find that person soon with whom I can live my whole life.”
So, are we to think that Katrina Kaif, Deepika Padukone and Nagris Fakiri are not the right person? In fact just a few days ago he had visited Katrina’s new house at night. Also Katrina dropped in his residence after Ranbir had a blast with Deepika at a party. All this was making it evident that Katrina and Ranbir were dating secretly.

But it seems it’s the non-committal attitude of Ranbir. However stars of the tinsel town don’t reveal everything to the public. When Bachchan junior married B-Town diva Aishwarya Rai, everyone was taken by surprise. Fans also prefer the singles, as their bachelor hood makes them more endearing to their female fans. Like Salman Khan.

Ranbir is also disappointed with the way people have linked him with many people. In the movie Barfi! , he had jokingly written ‘Mumma’s big boy’ on his palm with a pen. Imitating Priyanka Chopra’s tattoo, ‘Daddy lil girl’. Speaking on that he said, “Since I get linked every day, I might as well keep changing the name of the girls with a pen than a permanent tattoo.” Well he has to understand that it comes with the stardom. The more you become famous, the more you are talked about. As for the media they are always ready for some scandal.
Meanwhile he is also working with his ex-flame Deepika Padukone in ‘Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani ’. Speaking on that Deepika has said, that their past relationship have made them gel together better for the film.

Ranbir is looking at some other different projects too. He would be pairing up once again with Barfi! Director Anurag Basu for a biopic on legendary singer-actor Kishore Kumar.
Speaking on that Basu said, “Ranbir, UTV and I, all three of us are committed to make this film. Ranbir is busy; he is doing two films in between. After 'Barfi', Ranbir and I will come together again for this movie.”

Surely it would be the biggest challenge in Ranbir’s career. The madness, versatility, stupendous comic timing of Kishore Kumar, would be something really hard to depict on the screen. Hope Ranbir does justice to that role.

Ex-girlfriends Kat, Deepika at Ranbir’s birthday

Ranbir Kapoor doesn’t like celebrations as told by his mother Neetu Singh but the heartthrob of Bollywood who is basking in the joy of ‘Barfi!’ success was caught partying with his pals and exes last night in Mumbai.

Katrina Kaif who starred opposite Ranbir in ‘Rajneeti’ and ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahini’ looked fresh and beautiful in pink short outfit. It was not very long rumors of Ranbir and Katrina’s affair surfaced. Though reports suggest they were in a relationship, things were obscure, the couple maintained that they are thick friends only.

Happy Birthday, Ranbir!

Ranbir Kapoor is an actor who at the moment looks like the future of the Hindi Film Industry. This was to be as he belongs to the first family of actors in Bollywood. However one could not have claimed this after his debut film.
He entered this industry in the year 2007. His acting career has been till now of a span of five years but his share of films speaks volumes about what he is to be in the years to come. The 28th of September, 1982 marks his birthday. To know more about his life’s escapades and his career, read on.
Early life-
Ranbir was born to the famous couple Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh who in their times have been marvellous actors themselves. He is the grandson of legendary filmmaker and actor Raj Kapoor.
He completed his early education at Bombay Scottish School in Mumbai. Then he pursued method acting at New York’s The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute.
Before beginning his acting career, Ranbir appeared in two short films: Passion to Love (2002) and India 1964 (2004). Later he worked as an assistant director with Sanjay Leela Bhansali while the latter was working on Black (2005).
It was Sanjay Leela Bhansali who casted him for his film Saawariya opposite Sonam Kapoor who too was debuting with this film. The film released in 2007 and it tanked at the box-office. However, his acting skills did not go unnoticed in this film. His next was a light-hearted romantic comedy titled Bachchna Ae Haseena that released in 2008. He acted alongside three actresses Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone and Minissha Lamba. The film did fairly well.
Ranbir slowly steered towards acting-oriented films. His next was Ayan Mukerji’s Wake Up Sid (2009). His role was that of a spoilt and unambitious young lad. The film also starred well-known actor Konkona Sen Sharma. Ranbir exhibited his brilliance throughout in this film. The film won critical acclaim and was also successful commercially.
Another film that released the same year was Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. The film was an out and out comedy which Ranbir portrayed effortlessly and his comic-timing has been unparalleled since.
“Rocket Singh: Salesman of the year” was his next release that too garnered positive reviews from the critics. His performance in the film was appreciated by the audiences too. The three films of that year were starkly different and this helped him show his talent of adopting any kind of role.
In 2010 released Rajneeti which was a blockbuster. The film exhibited his evolvement and maturity as an actor and firmly paved the way for his success in the industry.
Imtiaz Ali directed Rockstar (2011) is the film that won him his first Best Actor award. At such a young age to have been able to beat the other established stars to win the “Best Actor” award illustrates clearly his ability to perform.
In 2012 released his film Barfi that has been directed by Anurag Basu. The film also starred Priyanka Chopra and newcomer Ileana D’Cruz. He played the character of a deaf and mute in the film. Barfi received overwhelming response from the critics and audiences alike. With a film like this Ranbir has clearly proved that he is here to stay.
His other upcoming film is Ayan Mukerji’s “Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani”. It is opposite Deepika Padukone and we can clearly claim that this film too will be remembered among Ranbir’s other incredible films.
Personal Life-
His personal life has always been the talk of the town. He dated Deepika Padukone for a brief period. After they split his name has been linked to every other actress. However, his films do all the talking for him.
Ranbir is one actor who has heavily contributed to the film industry with incredible acting in his choice of unusual films. On this day we hope that though he has achieved quite a lot already, he keeps proving that there is more to him.

Barfi! beats Heroine at the box-office

Ranbir Kapoorstarrer and Anurag Basu’s directed ‘Barfi!’ is giving Madhur Bhadarkar’s ‘Heroine’ a run for money. Audiences showing more interest on simple love story of a deaf and dump than the glitz and glamour ‘Herione’. Cine-goers are thronged to the theatre for ‘Barfi!’ which released a weak before ‘Heroine’.

‘Barfi!’ opening collection is much higher than ‘Heroine’ and the movie is very close to 100 crore club while ‘Heroine has garnered just Rs.32 crore. Made on a budget of Rs 20 crore, ‘Heroine’ recovered the cost but the movie could not shine at the box-office.
Both the films have been produced and distributed by Disney UTV.

"'Barfi' is performing exceedingly well across all international markets. The movie is resonating with audience and such sustenance across second weekend and weekdays is rare to see in recent times! Exhibitors all across have retained a good number of shows despite new releases," Amrita Pandey, executive director - syndication, international distribution, Studios, Disney UTV, said in a statement.
‘Barfi!’ official entry to the Oscar in Best Foreign Language Film worked in favor of the movie. The rush to the theatres to watch the film has not yet died down even after the release of big film, ‘Heroine’.
Gaurav Verma, director, India Theatrical Distribution, Studios, Disney UTV, says that it is like "icing on the cake".
"The second weekend saw more and more people coming in for the film and seeing the response we are in talks with exhibitors to add more screens for'Barfi!'" he added.
Not only in domestic market but Barfi performed tremendously well in the overseas also. Tuesday report tells that Barfi has earned $4.82 million, while "Heroine" collection is $1.75 million.
Pandey also added that no female-centric films in recent years have received a response as good as "Heroine".
She said "Heroine" had a "phenomenal opening in all major international markets"!
"This was a highly anticipated movie and our marketing push has helped pull in massive crowds to theatres," she added.

Karan Johar dying to work with Salman

Karan Johar might be the best buddies of Shahrukh Khan but that doesn’t stop the filmmaker from expressing his liking for Salman Khan. Salman Khan has been the undisputed star of Bollywood for four years. His movies are sure to score 100 crore and he has a huge fan following. Looking at his supreme aura, Karan Joar is smitten and he expressed his heartfelt desire to work with Salman.
Johar said, “I`m a huge Salman fan. I`m not just waiting; I`m dying to work with him. And he has huge fan following at my office. My writers and directors are a smitten bunch. They tell me, take your time signing him for a film, but please just call him to the office so we can interact, click pics and chat with him.”

Salman and Karan shared a great camaraderie and had a good chat on the show ‘Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa’. Salman worked with Karan long back in the blockbuster ‘Kuch Kuch Hota Hai’.

Ranbir has no plan to celebrate birthday, mom Neetu

It’s going to be a working birthday for heartthrob of Bollywood. Ranbir Kapoor. He will be working on his birthday tomorrow. He will shoot for Ayan Mukherjee’s romantic flick with Deepika Padukone
"Ranbir is working, he will be busy shooting and has no plans to celebrate as such. Maybe he will have a get together with his friends but we haven't discussed anything," says mom Neetu. "But Ranbir doesn't like birthdays. He finds celebrations extravagant affairs. He is a shy boy and when it comes to compliments, wishes... he doesn't know how to handle them. He is an introvert. Sometimes, I wonder why emotions like anger and happiness are missing in my son. Woh ek hi sur mein chalta hai. We have to keep pushing him," she laughs. 

Ranbir Kapoor recently received huge applause for his tremendous performance in ‘Barfi!’ where he played a deaf and the dump and adding icing to the cake is that the movie has made to the Oscar.

Does Katrina Kaif suffer from autophobia?

Autophobia is the fear of being alone or of one’s self. One wonders whether Katrina suffers from anything similar to that. A person close to Katrina has revealed that she prefers staying in hotel suite than in an apartment.

While speaking to a leading daily, that person said, “For Katrina it`s very lonely to stay in an apartment all alone. She goes through that experience in Mumbai where she has no one to share her home with. When shooting outside Mumbai, Katrina prefers the detached neutrality of a hotel. It`s far more convenient and practical.”

He has heard that success brings jealousy. The actress had a huge success with Ek Tha Tiger. Is that the reason why people are avoiding her? Or is it the fear of failure. The actress has vehemently denied that and had said, “I don't get scared. It's wrong if people say a hit is expected of me all the time. Of course, everyone fears failure, but for me there is no added pressure to succeed. It is up to the audience to accept or reject a film and I am happy my audience has supported me so far.”
She had admitted previously that she likes company. Before staring the shooting of New York, she had said, “Actors feel lost without all the attention. I am most comfortable in front of 300 people on a set. Otherwise, I am lost. It's too much quiet, too much alone.”

Also she had once said, “It gets very difficult at times. Doing a film takes up so much of your time because when you do a film you are absolutely into it. For three months that unit becomes your family and then once the film wraps up, that world ends. You are constantly on the move and that can get lonely at times but you have to understand that is how it functions and look forward.”
Apparently, even if she doesn’t admit, one feels she misses Salman Khan. Speaking on the different persons she has meet in her life, she said, “There have been different people at different times in life. My family has always been by my side, my management guys who have worked with me. You do make friends but sometimes that changes as well. Some people come into your lives and then they go away.”
We hope that she indeed finds her soul mate one day.

Shahrukh to celebrate Yash Chopra’s birthday in a grand way

Shahrukh Khan is planning to give a surprise party to Veteran filmmaker Yash Chopra. Yash Chopra turns 80 today.
Shahrukh has apparently asked Yashji to give two hours of his precious time. A source close to them revealed, “Yes, he asked two hours from Yashji.SRK is planning an event of sorts for Yashji, where people will get to see him and interact with Yashji. The actor will make the filmmaker recount his journey —on the screen and out of it. He also has plans to get the filmmaker to cut a cake. Shahrukh, who’s involved in the complete planning of the mini event for Yashji’s birthday, is very excited about doing something for his mentor.”
Yash Chopra and Shahrukh have a good relationship since a long time. It started with Darrand later on continued with everlasting hits like Dilwale Dulhaniya le JayengeDil to Pagal haiMohabbateinVeer Zaara and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi. The association is likely to be strengthened further with the movie Jab Tak Hain Jaan. The movie is thought to surpass all the collections of Yash Chopra’s movies till now.
Earlier it was said that all those actresses who had worked with him, may be a part of his birthday celebrations. A source close to YRF films had said, “Every actress, starting from Mala Sinha, Sadhna, Saira Banu, Parveen Babi, Waheeda Rehman, Rakhi Gulzar, and Rekha to Madhuri Dixit, Karishma Kapoor and Juhi Chawla, to the present lot is expected to make it to the event.”
But it seems to be completely different now. A source said, “Much has been written about Yash Chopra’s 80th birthday celebrations — from a grand party where all his heroines will come together for the event, to him going for a holiday with wife Pamela to London. But the truth is something else altogether. It’s a known fact that Shahrukh holds Yashji in very high regards and has known him for many years. And so, he has planned a special evening for him on his birthday.”
Some however think this is a publicity gimmick for their movie, which is going to be released in two months. It’s felt that if it’s a surprise party, then why is it being revealed to the media. However fans rubbished that and had said that only the party plans have been revealed but what will actually happen during the party have not been revealed.
Anyways, it’s time to greet a Happy Birthday to Yash Chopra and to wish him all the success for the forthcoming film.

Salman to participate in Delhi half-marathon

Big-heart Salman Khan would be making his present felt at the national capital on October 7th. The occasion is a half-marathon organized by Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP). The half marathon is part of the golden jubilee celebrations for the border police force. ITBP had approached Salam on August with the request of participating in this event.

With this event Sallu Bhai will also be joining the prestigious paramilitary organization. ITBP is indeed proud of this, as was reflected by the statement of Deepak Pandey, the public relations officer of ITBP. He said, “We had approached few other celebrities to become our brand ambassador. While we did get a positive response from all, there were certain limitations. Some had a time constraint, while some had an issue with running with the contestants. Salman was the only one who readily agreed, without any questions. In fact, he cancelled his shoots for that day and said that he will be available for as long as we want him.”

Salman is not only participating in the event, he has also made a small video. In which he has urged young people to come forward and participate in the event. Speaking on that Mr. Pandey said, “Salman flew down from Mumbai to shoot his appeal for the marathon, on his own expenses and even interacted with the ITBP officers and jawans. At the event, apart from participating in the run, Salman will also motivate the youth to join the security forces.”
Not to mention the 600 km that Salman would be travelling to participate in this event. Salman is currently shooting for Dabangg 2 in Satara, Maharashtra. He would be travelling from there to Mumbai by road. Satara is 300 kms from Mumbai. From Mumbai he will fly to Delhi on 6th October. After the event he will again fly back to Mumbai and then travel by road back to Satara to rejoin the shooting. Without taking a penny for all this trouble, Salman is in fact paying from his own pocket. One just needs to take a bow to this man. Magnanimous, enormous are words which are failing to describe him.

He is taking his Being Human motto forward with this event. Salman had earlier announced on Facebook that he intends to make open more Being Human stores. The intention is to reach out to the needy and underprivileged children. One wonders if any star recently has done so much selflessly.

Mohd Rafi’s son slams Lata Mangeshkar

A day after legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar remarked that she demanded a written apology from ace singer Mohammed Rafi has irked Rafi Saab’s family and they took a dig at Lataji saying that she has grown old and her memory faded as Rafi Saab never apologized to her in written.Highly miffed Rafi Saab's family threatened to take legal action against Lata Mangeshkar against her wrong allegation.

Lata Mangeshkar's statements in an interview about her having a tiff with Mohammad Rafi and demanding an apology letter from him did not go well with his son Shahid Rafi.
"This is utter nonsense. Lataji, with all due respect, is getting old, and I think is unable to recall things correctly. Reading her say all this has upset me, as it is totally false. I'm thinking of issuing a legal notice to her. Royalty was an issue - I am not denying ki aisi koi baat nahi hui thi. But when she says she demanded an apology letter, that's wrong. At that time, Lataji ki haisiyat thi, mere daddy ko naa bolne ki, ya kuch demand karne ki? She was losing her space to talented newcomers like Mubarak Begum and Geeta Dutt, and daddy was at the top. Also, my dad was illiterate; he never wrote anything.

Agar letter hai Lataji ke paas, let her prove it. Why raise this issue 32 years after he passed away? Why didn't she speak of the letter back then? Any letter written by such a legend should be preserved as a memento. So, agar daddy ne poora apology letter likha hai, toh kahaan hai woh? Sawaal hi nahi uthta. I can bet my life that there's no letter. If there is, let her show it as proof, kasam se, main chup ho jaunga. My father was a much, much greater person than her, and I'll not have any Tom Dick and Harrytalking about him like that," says an angry Shahid Rafi, Rafi's son.
Rafi's son-in-law Meraj Ahmed also threw light on the issue and said that there was a fight between the two but no apology letter was written.
The incident created differences between them and they did not sing for three years.

John Abraham narrowly escapes death

Shooting an action scene is not a catwalk. An action scene needs to be shot with perfection and utmost care otherwise consequence would be very dreadful. While shooting an action scene for Balaji ‘Shootout At Wadala’, Anil Kapoor who is playing cop in the movie fired very close to John Abraham. Anil’s bad aim has saved John’s life otherwise John would have not survived today.
On Monday night John Abraham who plays a gangster at Manya Surve escaped death while filming a gunfire scene on the sets of Sanjay Gupta's Shootout At Wadala at Haffkine Institute.
Anil Kapoor who is playing a cop was to shot a blank bullet (minus metallic lead) on John from a minimum distance of 15 feet. The shot burst into flames but hit John with 10 times more intensity than it supposed to be. Due to Anil’s bad aim, the bullet did not hit in middle of John’s neck and the bullet browsed on the left side of his neck. Hence, the actor narrowly escaped death.
The unit was shocked. "There was utter panic all around. Everybody realised what could have happened if Kapoor timed his shot well. Gupta screamed and demanded an explanation for the miscalculation of distance," a source informs.

When contacted, Kapoor confirmed the incident and added, "John was very fortunate and sporting." As for Abraham, he simply said, "It would have been all over for me on September 23. I still can't believe that I am alive."

A doctor was called on the sets to attend to Abraham, whose ears were "ringing for 24 hours" after the accident.

"My neck was burnt and the wound is still there on my collar bone. It hurts. But I am carrying out my day-to-day work pretending as if nothing has happened. I shall definitely take a long time to forget what happened at Haffkine Institute. If you ask me whose fault it is, I would only say that everything happened in the heat of the moment. Nobody expected the intensity and the velocity of those blank bullets. I think I should have checked Mr Kapoor's gun. I always check and double-check my guns if I am doing any firing scene. I am agnostic but I now feel that there is God up there," Abraham added.
The director was speechless. "I don't know what to say. When I think of it, it sends shivers down my spine," he told us.

Madhuri, Sridevi to set the stage of JDJ on fire

Evergreen actress Madhuri Dixit and Sridevi will come together for the first time on Television, in the dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5. The finale episode will be aired on September 30th, on Colors TV channel.
A source close to the show said, “Sridevi and Madhuri together are the doyens of dance in Bollywood and it can’t get bigger than them coming together. It will be great to see the actors on stage making the finale even grander. Earlier, Madhuri did dress up like Sridevi and recreate her hit song ‘Kaante Nahi Kat te’ for a promo, so it would be lovely if Sridevi reciprocates by dancing to Madhuri’s iconic Ek Do Teen number.”
It will indeed be a treat for the fans of both the actress. The two were bitter rivals in their heydays, vying for the same role and no. one status. Moreover their dance was the talk of the town. From Madhuri’s Ek Do Tin to Sridevi’s Mere Haathon Mai Nau Nau. However the two got married and settled down. With that the audiences missed their charm the most. Also they never acted in the same film. It seems with their Jugalbandi in JDJ5, that thirst will be quenched for some time .They would be seen in the same frame together, shaking legs to each other’s songs.
Madhuri is judge of the show along with Remo Fernandez and Karan Johar. Sridevi will be appearing for a guest appearance on grand finale. Karan Johar further upped the ante, by posting a teaser picture of theirs on twitter. He got an instant reaction from Dabangg girl Sonakshi Sinha, who tweeted, “@kjohar25 oh that's a classic shot!!”
Sridevi will also be making a comeback after 15 years, with Gauri Shinde’s English Vinglish. She would be promoting her film on the show. The film is about an Indian woman, who enrolls in an English teaching school, to learn English for her kids and husband. The promos of the movie were launched on august 23rd on Sridevi’s birthday. It was liked by all, with more than a lakh hits in a couple of days on YouTube.
Well, when these two screen goddesses come together on the same stage, the dance floor will surely be on fire. The audiences will be enthralled to watch their magical moves once again.
It is sure going to be a blast on September 30th. Don’t miss it.

Penelope Cruz wants to romance Shahrukh Khan

Penelope Cruz has a lot of admiration for the Indian film Industry and would love to work with SRK.
A leading Indian daily recently caught up with her. The discussion was on cinema and her work in India. When the actress was asked if she would like to do an Indian film, she said, “India is a culturally strong country and very traditional. Bollywood is now making its mark and people in Hollywood want to work with the Indian stars and in Bollywood too. I would love to work with Shahrukh Khan.”
Penelope is already involved in philanthropic work in India. Cruz had previously visited India to work with mother Teresa. She was very much moved by the condition of the leprosy patients at Mothers Teresa’s clinic. Later she had said, “To spend a week with Mother Teresa? I was more excited to do that than to get the greatest movie. When you are there, you feel more useful than at any time in your life.” 
Penelope started her career in comedy drama art house film, Jamón, jamón. She played the role of a young woman in that film who is expecting her first child. However, her mother-law-doesn’t approve of that and asked Javier Bardem’s character to seduce her. She appeared topless in that movie after which she became a huge sex symbol.
Javier incidentally is now Penelope’s husband. They started dating in 2007 and got married in 2010. She had her first child from him in 2011. They have named him Leonardo. Penelope thinks that her husband is the best person to work with .When asked who her favorite actor is and co-star, she said it was her husband, Javier.
In 2008 she had wowed us with her movie Vick Cristina Barcelona. She is said to have again paired up with director Woody Allen, in his next venture. About that she said, “Working with Woody was easier this time because I knew him, so I wasn't so nervous because of all the stories you hear about him. He is peculiar and unique and different, but it is really a blessing to spend time with him. He is one of the funniest people in the world. Every day he does something that surprises you and that you will remember forever.”
We hope the film is a success like the 2011 movie Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

Abu-Jani to design Big B's 70th birthday outfit

Amitabh Bachchan’s 70’s birthday celebration is going to be a grand one and Jaya Bachchan has been looking into every aspect of the celebration. Jaya is planning a big surprise for Big B and ace designer Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla who had a long standing association with the Bachchan family will be designing Amitabh Bachchan’s special outfit.

"It is a big surprise. I can't reveal everything right now. We are designing something special for Mr. Bachchan. You will get to know about everything as you get closer to the big day. Things will get clearer as we will get closer to the event," said Mr Khosla.

Abu-Jani’s association with the Bachchan family dates long back. In most of the occasion, the Bachchan family wore the outfits designer by the designer duo. Recently, at IIFA Aishwarya won huge accolades for her style and wardrobe amidst weighty controversy.
Amitabh Bachchan recently launched their book along with Hollywood star Judi Dench in London.

Khosla remained tight-lipped about the birthday bash, but said: "It will be Jaya Bachchan's event. We will only be helping her with all the preparations. Individually, we are not hosting any party for him."

Parineeti to host GIMA awards 2012

The bubbly actress, Parineeti Chopra will be hosting the Chevrolet Star Global Indian Music Academy Awards. The GIMA awards ceremony will be held on 1st October.
Parineeti is quite excited about it and said, “This is for the first time that I will be hosting an awards function. It is an honor to see several talented people from the music industry come together. I am extremely excited about this. I am looking forward to having a lovely experience at the award function.”
The spontaneous and enthusiastic attitude of the actress is something that mesmerizes everyone. Acknowledging this, she said, “After becoming an actress, I have never hosted any show, but during school days, I used to host. I am very spontaneous, so it might work well for me. Just reading the scripts might get boring at times, so I hope my spontaneity works on stage as well.”
Parineeti has done a triple honors degree in Business, Finance and Economics, from Manchester School in UK. However when she completed studies in 2009, she was unable to find a job due to recession there. Hence she landed in Mumbai .Parineeti started her career as a PR consultant in the marketing department, of Yash Raj Films.
The director of Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl, who also worked in YRF, took note of her and asked her to come to an audition. She was phenomenal in that. Though Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl was not so successful, she was much appreciated for her small role. Taran Adarsh had commented on that, “Parineeti Chopra springs a pleasant surprise. She has wonderful screen presence and acts freely. In fact, the viewers would take to her character instantly.”
Parineeti is however not looking as the Film industry as her only option. She claims her educational qualification is good enough for her to fall back on, if things don’t work out in Bollywood. Recently she said in an interview to a leading daily, “I hadn't grown up thinking that I have to be this big actress in Bollywood. Hence it isn't a do or die situation for me either. If I get success then well, great. If not, God forbid, then I do have my degree and educational qualifications to fall back upon. I will do that kind of work which I want to do.”
The audiences love her smile and acting so much. Hopefully she won’t have to leave the film industry.

Kareena refuses to sign pregnancy clause, lost 'Ram Leela'

It seems Sanjay Leela Bhansalihas learn a lesson from his contemporaries Madhur Bhandarkar. Madhur at first signed Aishwarya Rai Bachchan for ‘Heroine’ but when her pregnancy issue came into limelight; she was dropped from the film. The result was that his highly anticipated film ‘Heroine’ was about to shelved if Kareena didn't come to his rescue. Sanjay Leela Bhansali does not want the same thing to happen with his film, ‘Ram Leela’. Before the film go on board, he wants Bebo to sign the no pregnancy clause but Kareena refused.

Kareena and Saif’s marriage is speculated to take place on October 16th and to play safe Sanjay asked Kareena to sign the pregnancy clause but she denied. Filmmaking these days comes with lots of terms and conditions and an actors has to be accept all the condition to grab a project.
Talking to a leading daily, a source said, “The bone of contention between Bebo and Bhansali wasn`t the money; as is being speculated in the media. It is reportedly the pregnancy clause that Bebo refused to sign.”

Sanjay at first refused to cast Kareena due to her marital status and now when Kareena pushed back her marriage due to the film, the pregnancy issue cropped up.
