Sonakshi Sinha too fat to endorse a brand

Sonakshi Sinha chose to walk out of lucrative endorsement deal rather shedding her weight. She chose her curvaceous figure than a good endorsement deal. When the brand head asked Sona to lose some extra flab to fit into the shoes of a perfect model, she refused. The brand is a famous clothing line and Hrithik Roshan is another brand ambassador. When the endorsers asked Sonakshi to lose some weight, she reportedly refused.
"She has been the face of the brand for some time along with Hrithik Roshan. However for the latest ad campaign, the makers needed someone slimmer. So they asked Sona to work on losing a few inches," a source told.
The ‘Dabangg’ star has opted out of the campaign. "She is no more the brand ambassador. So, I can tell you for sure that she is not doing the new campaign. Her contract with the brand had expired and we have decided not to renew it. Hrithik is the other brand ambassador with Sonakshi. We don't know whether he is still on board or not," her spokesperson Bunty Sajdeh told the tabloid.
Deepika Padukone who has a well toned body is likely to replace Sonakshi Sinha.
However, the brand head refused to divulge any details about their ambassador until they reach to a final decision.

Aishwarya and Salman comes together again

On Wednesday, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and her ex-flame Salman Khan was at the same place at the same time but by God’s grace, they did not cross path. Both Ash and Sallu were at the Mehboob Studios in Bandra for their individual commitments but fortunately they did not bump into each other.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was at the Mehboob studio for the shooting of a hair product she endorses while Salman Khan was there interacting with media for his upcoming film, ‘Dabangg 2’.
Says an onlooker, “Aishwarya arrived at Mehboob Studios around 12.30 pm and proceeded to stage No 3 for the shoot. Salman arrived by 4 pm and was at stage No 1. While Aishwarya left the venue at 7 pm, Salman was there till late night.”
Adds the source, “As the security folk were strict, no one could take Aishwarya’s entry and exit snapshots. Even though a lot of media folk were present for the Salman event, Ash made a quiet exit.”
When any lover ends their relationship and they happen to meet at various events then situation obviously turns odd. Neither of them wants to cross each other’s path. They always try to avoid one another but situation compel them to bump into each other.
The same thing happened with Aishwarya and Salman. They were once lovers and they broke-up dramatically. But situation brings them together again and again. Today their paths are different. Both Ash and Sallu have moved on in life. Aishwarya married to Abhishek and blessed with a baby girl who turned one recently and Salman went much ahead in his career. He is the box-office king and registered in his name one after another blockbuster.
Both are happy and content in their life.

A star studded premiere of 'Talaash'

Talaash” is the latest offering from the trio of Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji. The film has been directed by Reema Kagti of “Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd” fame. She has also co-written last year’s blockbuster “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” (2011) along with Zoya Akhtar.
This film has been produced by Farhan Akhtar and Riteish Sidhwani of Excel Entertainment and Aamir Khan of Aamir Khan Productions. The film had been garnering interest since the project went on floors.
Aamir Khan plays the role of a cop who is trying to untie a mystery. Kareena plays a prostitute who adds to the complications of the plot. Rani plays his wife and reflects the other aspect of the story and Aamir’s life.
The movie lies in the genre of a suspense thriller. This genre has developed into a hit formula lately. The content we hope is taut and closely bound that will then surely make this film work. Because this is Aamir Khan’s film and we can hope this from the content.
The star cast also is a rare combination and a formidable one and therefore we are sure the film is going to be successful. After the entire promotional spree which was a low-key affair the date finally arrived for its first screening.
Recently the film’s premiere was held at Mumbai where Aamir and Rani were present without Kareena Kapoor who was later spotted at the Mumbai airport along with them. Rani looked spectacular in a white and golden anarkali at the premiere. The director of the film Reema Kagti was also present.
The opening of this film was a star-studded affair. Among contemporaries there was Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma and Kangana Ranaut who attended the screening. There was one of the ‘3 idiots’ too who made it to the premiere. Sharman Joshi turned up with his wife Prerna. His father-in-law Prem Chopra was also present.
“Ek Tha Tiger” director Kabir Khan was seen with his wife Mini Mathur. The entire Akhtar family, starting from Javed Akhtar, Shabana Azmi, Zoya, Farhan and Adhuna were at the event. The film’s co-producer Riteish Sidhwani also made it to the premiere. Farhan sported his “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” hairstyle at the screening.
Aamir Khan’s family with his wife Kiran Rao, mother Zeenat Hussain and his children from his first wife Reena, son Junaid and daughter Ira were also present at the event.
Rajkumar Hirani, Kareena’s father Randhir Kapoor, Ashuosh Gowarikar with wife Sunita , Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu, Anil Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor were the other celebrities of the film fraternity who came at the premiere to lend their support to the film.

Watch Trailer: Farhan Akhtar in “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag”

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra shot to fame with “Rang De Basanti”. His next had been “Delhi 6” which did not do well at the box-office. His latest offering is going to be “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” which is a biopic on Milkha Singh.
Milkha Singh is an Indian athlete who lost his parents during the partition of India. The story revolves around him and his life. Farhan was first seen sporting a look for this film that was similar to that of Milkha.  He garnered a lot of attention from everybody and got thumbs up from the media.
The trailer of the film is out and it is of 2-minute duration. The trailer makes the storyline palpable, a true story based on the athlete Milkha Singh. Glimpses of the movie in the trailer shows Farhan Akhtar’s brilliance as an actor. It definitely promises to be his best till now.
Sonam Kapoor also stars in the film. She plays the love-interest of Milkha. The real-life Milkha is known to have been sold this story for nothing, but one rupee. The remuneration from this film is going to be used for athletes who are in dire need of money.
There is an interesting anecdote which later resulted in the title of the film. Milkha Singh’s father’s last words to him had been “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag”. He had said this when riots had already struck due to the partition. Milkha lost his family in these riots during 1947. The story upholds his life, his spirit, his grit and his perseverance to the audiences.
The shoot of this film is complete. Farhan Akhtar has been quite emotionally connected to this film. His role has been challenging but he has done full justice to it.
On wrapping up the shoot for this film, Farhan took to his Twitter account to tweet about his frame of mind. He tweeted “As the shoot on Bhaag Milkha Bhaag crosses the finish line, enveloped by a sense of loss. The unit - our temporary commune - is broken up. Best wishes to all”.
The film will be releasing on the 12th of July, next year. A.R Rahman had been approached to do the film’s music. But due to his busy schedule, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy had been selected. The film has been produced by the director himself in partnership with Viacom 18.
The film lies in the sports genre that has not quite found ground with the Indian audience but there has been exceptions in the past, and what can be made out from the trailers, is that this film will definitely hit the nail.

Akon to perform with SRK at a wedding

Akon has a great fan-base here in India. However, apart from the urban crowd nobody really knew he existed. What did the trick for him was the song “Chammak Challo” from “Ra.One”, the song was massy and made him reach out to a larger section of listeners who had no interest or taste in his kind of songs.
The song “Chammak Challo” became a huge hit with everybody enjoying its tunes. The collaboration between the duo Vishal-Shekhar and Akon thus was successful. Also, it was Shah Rukh Khan who had got him on board for the project and rest is history.
What can also be inferred from the collaboration is that Akon too has been able to develop a certain bond with SRK and vice-versa that is reflected in the new gossip that has cropped up. It is known that SRK and many others from the industry dance at extravagant weddings of the family members of business tycoons and in the process mints money.
Akon after “Chammak Challo” is a new entrant in that list. This wedding season he is one of the most sought after. It has been reported that he has been flooded with offers to perform at these high-profile marriages. However, when he had to make a choice between performing at a wedding and showing his loyalty towards SRK he chose the latter.
Akon had already been zeroed in for a performance at the United Kingdom based business tycoon Puru Sethia’s marriage that would be held in Udaipur. Priyanka Chopra too was supposed to perform there.
However when SRK was informed about this, he called Akon up and asked him if he could turn down the Udaipur offer and perform with him at a marriage ceremony held for the couple Karan Soorma and Soniya Shenoy in Goa.
Akon readily agreed to this offer for the man who introduced him to Bollywood. He gave back the advance that he had taken for performing in Udaipur and took a flight for Goa instead. There he will join SRK and perform along with Mika.
The person who has been left out in this hullaballoo is Priyanka Chopra. She is a close associate of SRK and we wonder how she is going to react to such a situation where she has been left out. There had already been enough written about SRK and Priyanka before to affect their friendship and now this.

“Talaash”- a big release of 2012

Talaash” marks the return of Aamir Khan on the silver screen. Last he was seen in his wife’s directorial debut “Dhobi Ghaat” in the year 2010. However, the role was a cameo and thus it can be safely said that “3 Idiots” (2009) had been his last full-fledged film. In this film Aamir Khan plays the role of a cop who is trying to unravel a mystery.
The film apart from Aamir, stars Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji. The two actresses are stars in their own right. Rani has been to the pinnacle of her success and thus has a great fan following. She is talented and can get into the skin of her characters very well. Rani plays Aamir Khan’s wife in the film. She portrays a distressed and somber look, this being stated purely on the basis of what is shown in the trailers. Kareena Kapoor plays a prostitute who adds to the mystery of the plot and also entangles herself with Aamir.
Kareena, on the other hand, is enjoying all the attention that she is getting from the film industry. She is one of the top actresses of today’s time and rightly so. There has been a tremendous change in the way she would act in her initial films and now. She will be seen onscreen post her wedding in “Talaash” for the first time, though the shooting was over long back. Therefore, that itself will arouse a certain kind of interest in the audience.
When it is an Aamir Khan film, there is a certain amount of expectation from the content of the film. This film lies in the genre of suspense thriller and thus it is expected that the story must be intense and greatly put together to keep the tension building. Nothing much has been revealed about the storyline of the film, apart from the characters each of the stars play and at all the promotional events the cast have been able to remain tight- lipped. This has already created a curiosity in the audience.
Reema Kagti, the director, too is talented. She has directed “Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd.” before.  The film had an unusual storyline and she directed it well. She also co-wrote “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” along with Zoya Akhtar and thus it definitely reflects her talent.
The film is being produced by Aamir Khan’s Aamir Khan Productions and Riteish Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment. Such big names backing this film clearly prove the film has a scope of being a blockbuster.

Friends, family keeps railing Manisha in hospital

One of the noted Bollywood actress Manisha Koirala recently diagnosed with cancer and she is undergoing treatment at Jaslok hospital in Mumbai. No sooner the news of Manish’s health spread out, Manisha’s old Bollywood friend rallied around ail Manisha.
Doctors refuse to divulge the details of her illness except that she is being treated by onco-surgeon Dr Suresh Advani. "Manisha is responding well to the treatment and she has been referred for a few tests today. Unless we review the results, the exact nature of her illness cannot be known. And commenting about it till then will be mere speculation," said Krishnakant Dasyam, head of marketing and spokesperson for Jaslok hospital.

Dasyam said that Manisha requested to keep the details of her illness under wrap. "So, even if the test results arrive, we will have to seek her permission before we can communicate the nature of her ailment to the public," Dasyam added.
Her health scare brought her family to her side. "Her brother was at the hospital all day. One of her family members will stay with her all night. She is weak but she is okay. She had four visitors today in her suite, all of them were her immediate family members," said a hospital source.

Manisha's friends are optimistic that Manisha will win the battle and emerged victorious. "Woh manage kar legi biru," said one of her oldest pals, Jackie Shroff. "She is not a quitter. She has battled so much more in her life that a mere illness won't be able to defeat her." Ram Gopal Varma, one of Manisha's closest colleagues, spoke to TOI twice, just to enquire about her. "I have not been able to communicate with her... I've been getting these text messages about her health that got me very worried," said RGV.

Manisha’s neighbor and her close friend Gulshan Grover said, "She is a strong girl and I hope she will be able to win this battle just as she had won the others," he said.
 We wish the actress a speedy recovery!

Salman hates people calling him ‘Bhai’

Fans call him bhai or Salman Bhai in love and out of respect but Salman Khan hates people address him as Bhai because the superstar feels that only his brothers Arbaaz and Sohail Khan have the right to call him bhai. In a candid conversation, Salman said that he dislikes people calling him Bhai.
“All sorts of idiots call me that. Even rank strangers. Not everyone has the right to call me bhai. (Gets animated, mimics a kid) Kids call me, `aye Salman how you doing...Mr Khan... oye Salman Khan’, I love it. But when some people call me bhai I think they are faking it. I hate it when some people call me Sallu. But when they call me that out of love, it shows. It`s the tone that matters. Only Arbaaz and Sohail should call me bhai. Besides, my parents have given me a name, it`s a superb name -Salman Khan and I prefer people calling me Salman. I think this `Sallu` was started by Jackie (Shroff). Now he calls me Salley!”
Dabangg 2’ will hit the theatre of December 21st and Salman said that he is under immense pressure as the film had to match up with the original blockbuster ‘Dabangg’. From Abhinav Kashyap, Arbaaz Khan has taken the responsibility to make the film masaladar.
Giving credit to brother Araaz, Salman said, “When Abhinav came to us, it was a very dry art kind of film. The kind of films they (the brothers) make. In fact now, his brother (Anurag) has changed his style. He has now got that masala touch. There were no songs earlier in Dabangg, and we had to change that. We kept improvising. The film achieved a certain form because of Arbaaz. But Abhinav contributed as well.

Abhinav realised that if you want to make a saleable film, you need a commercial touch, you need songs. That`s when Arbaaz came into the picture. But then Abhinav decided to opt out of the sequel.”
‘Dabangg 2’ has not yet released and ‘Dabangg 3’ is on the card, “Of course, we have already thought about it. We will go back to his past, the making of Chulbul Pandey,” said Khan.

First Look: Chitrangada Singh seduces Arjun Rampal in ‘Inkaar’

The first look of Sudhir Mishra’s film, ‘Inkaar’ was released and the poster shows Chitrangada Singh seduces Arjun Rampal. The film is about a sexual harassment at the workplace.
Chitrangada looks sensuous, she sans clothes and hiding her secret assets behind Arjun Rampal while Arjun looks like a menacing boss.
It was initially reported that director Sudhir Mishra wrote three scripts for the film to bring out the actual happenings.
An insider close to the project says, “Everyone brainstormed over this situation and after a lengthy discussion they decided to do this in order to avoid any unpleasant situations later. One particular dialogue, which was debated, involves Chitrangda saying: “Yes, my boss has taught me everything. However, that doesn’t mean that I will spread my legs every time he walks into the room’.”
“Since the film has a bold and controversial subject and talks about sexual harassment in the office, there are a few dialogues that might raise eyebrows. The makers do not want to take any chances,” adds the insider.
Chitrangda and Arjun Rampal have teamed up for the first time in Inkaar. When contacted, the film’s spokesperson confirmed the news, saying: “Inkaar is a bold statement on gender relationships within an office environment. Hence, we have quite a few lines that are explicit and hard-hitting. We plan to make them go viral on the Internet to create excitement.”
Inkaar is slated to release on January 18, 2013.

But now, with flooded film offers, he is finding difficult to manage his schedule. “Every month, he works on the show for 15 days, and then he dedicates 15 days for his films.

Isha Sharvani dances on the ramp for IRFW

Isha Sharvani was a threat to everybody on the sets of “Jhalak Dikhla Jaa” season 5, because of her dancing skills. She had a very nimble and agile framework that made her very deft at what she did on the dance floors.
However, things took a turn and she got an elbow injury while rehearsing that made her quit the show. But recently she was seen in public at the opening day of India Resort Fashion Week (IRFW), season 2. She seemed fitter and she danced with designer clothes on.
The show is a fashion extravaganza that started on Wednesday. Isha looked ethereal in a red swimsuit that was paired with a stretched chiffon jacket. She was part of James Ferriera’s show.
When she was asked about her elbow dislocation and her recovery, she said “I was under intense rehabilitation for a long time because of that dislocated elbow, I`m still not fully recovered, and there are things I could do that I can`t seem to do so easily now….There was a time when I got the doctors worried. But I`m fine now, and performing again. I`m in a place I always wanted to be. And no, I don`t regret leaving ‘Jhalak’ when I was going strong.”
Talking about making it to the ramp she revealed “I was nervous. I could hear models telling me to keep hands straight. Finally I did it.”
The actress was also the showstopper for James’ show. She wore a black colored halter neck gown that was paired with a red stole.
James Ferriera displayed an assortment of resort wear that had a mix of sarongs, swimsuits, and kaftans. Talking about Isha he said that she is one who is “low on tantrum”.
He further elaborated saying, “Isha is a sweetheart, I wanted her to walk for me at the last edition as well but things didn`t work well. She is one of the most unassuming stars currently. She adapts herself in every situation and never complains.”
His line of collection is mainly made of satin and viscose and is also reasonably priced. The colours that have been used are mostly bright hues such as blue, pink, red and orange.
He added talking about his collection, “I went all the way to Sri Lanka to make the swimsuits with a company which is the largest swimwear manufacturer; I am in a collaboration with them, and it`s the first time they are working with an Indian designer.”

A source from the sets revealed, “A sequence has been shot in the song where Kareena dons Salman bhai’s Dabangg frames. Farah (filmmaker-choreographer Farah Khan) wanted some element in the song that was massy, yet uber cool and so we decided to give Kareena the shades contrasting her lucknowi dhoti-kurta look and she has rocked the look completely. She was more than happy to imitate the style of one of her favorite co-stars.”
Kareena has been sporting a sizzling look for the song of this film. She is all set to scorch the screens with “Fevicol se” that will be setting a benchmark for the item numbers that are yet to come.

Soha finds a good friend in her bhabhi Kareena

Kareena Kapoor was always making news with her relationship with Saif Ali Khan. From its inception, after dumping a certain Shahid Kapur, to their five-year long courtship and to their marriage, the relationship they shared has been written about in the media.
Recently the couple tied the knot on the 16th of October. The celebrations continued for five-days and were split between Mumbai and Delhi. Only very close associates from the film industry had made it to the guest list other than close family and friends. The reception at Delhi saw some VVIPs attending it.
After the wedding the media left no stone unturned, to get to know about the personal equations each of the family member shares with each other. Soha Ali Khan was recently under the radar to understand her take on her sister-in law Kareena Kapoor. The reason being the two were reported to have been bonding a lot in the weeks of the wedding preparation and after that.
A source close to both of them revealed “Soha has always been fond of Kareena and the two share a great relationship. After the wedding, Soha was very excited about Kareena becoming a part of their family. She was a close confidante to Kareena throughout the wedding ceremony. After the wedding, when the family took off to Delhi for the reception and then to Pataudi, Soha was by her side."
When Soha was quizzed on her relationship with Kareena she reiterated the same thoughts, “She is very sweet. I have actually spent a lot of time with her in the last two weeks. It's great fun.”
Even when only the marriage plans had been announced last year, Soha revealed her affinity for Kareena. She had said talking about her that she is “already part of the family.”
She also threw some light on the Saif-Kareena relationship saying, “All of us are very fond of Kareena. Besides being fully supportive, she is a very caring and nice person. Both bhai (brother) and Kareena are very good together. She makes him happy and completes him in so many ways. They make a very good couple. Their relationship has become very strong. Both Kareena and bhai have grown a lot as a couple.”
That reveals some attachment on the part of Soha and Kareena. Such bonding is rarely seen between two public figures but it seems that Kareena has been managing her relationships with Saif’s family pretty well.

Priyanka Chopra to learn boxing from Mary Kom

Priyanka Chopra’s next offering, after “Barfi”, is going to be a biopic on Olympic medal winner Mary Kom.
Earlier on, it was a choice between Priyanka and Deepika who were both vying for the same role. Only on the basis of her physical appearance and stature that is closer to Mary Kom’s, she got selected for the role.
Mary Kom recently won the bronze medal at the Olympics 2012, and is also a five-time women’s boxing champion. The film on her is being directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. He is known to be a tough taskmaster and Priyanka therefore will have no other way than to learn the art of boxing and to teach her this, the real-life Mary Kom will come handy.
She will grill herself for four months to get a hang of the school of boxing. The time-span is very short but Priyanka is said to be assured that after all the lessons, she will be able to punch and box like a professional.
As the film requires method-acting she will have to give in even more time to this film. She will fly off to Manipur to stay with the boxer’s family. There she intends to understand more about Mary and her life, her struggles and her role as that of a mother as well. She is sure to come across certain anecdotes that will help her get into the skin of her character.
A source revealed, “She needs to understand how Mary has struggled to perfect her sport even though she had to play mother to twins and take care of her husband. There are a lot of things about Mary’s family that nobody knows. For instance, Mary’s father became aware of his daughter’s affinity to boxing only after he read about her achievements in the newspaper. By spending time with the family, Priyanka will get to know about such stories.”
To take the interest circling the film a notch higher it is being hummed that the real-life Mary Kom will have a special appearance in the movie wherein she will act as the opponent to Priyanka’s character- the onscreen Mary Kom.
Generally, any sport film does not find any takers in their audience. However, “Lagaan” was an exception and even found entry at the Oscar in the year 2002. “Chak De India” too was commercially successful. We certainly hope that Priyanka finds the same kind of success with her film.

Sonakshi has proved again and again that curves can also be sexy. Salman is very close to Sonakshi's father Shatrughan Sinha.
Sallu and Sona looked relaxed as they came to see the highly success film, ‘Life Of Pi’ with their groups. Salman was as usual dressed in ‘Being Human’ t-shirt and Sonakshi wore leggings, a peach top. She wore glasses. ‘The Dabangg’ star posed happily for the shutterbugs while Sonakshi looked bit hesitant.

Aamir is confident about 'Talaash' hitting the bull’s eye

The audiences have high-expectations from “Talaash”, purely on the basis of the star cast- Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor, and Rani Mukerji. Also because it is an Aamir Khan film, the content of the film is also being considered one-of a kind.
Aamir Khan normally has always released his films during Christmas. However, this film will be breaking all those rules and will be releasing on a Friday which is a work-day. The film is going to be a huge release as he was last seen in “Dhobi Ghaat” (2009) which was his wife’s directorial debut.
All his last films- “Taare Zameen Par”, “Ghajini” and “3 Idiots”- had been huge hits and they had all released during Christmas.
“Talaash” will be releasing in 2400 screens all across India.” Talaash” had been in the news for a long time since its inception. It was supposed to be released earlier this year but got delayed as certain portions were re-shot. As the days are nearing for its release the excitement and buzz surrounding it too is increasing.
A spokesperson stated, “’Talaash’ is the most anticipated film of the season. Trade is very excited as it is very strong for non-holiday Friday.” This film has been made with a budget of 40 crores. This amount has already been recovered from it satellite sales only, making it the highest ever to have been recovered from the satellite sales.
However, the publicity of this film has been very low-key compared to the other films that have been released during this time. The cast made a few appearances to promote their film. Aamir also appeared on television in CID.
However, his marketing skills have always been innovative and extensive but this time around things are different. When the director of the film Reema Kagti had been approached for her word on this she said “We are sandwiched between Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son Of Sardaar on one Friday and Khiladi 786 on the next Friday. All these three are big extravagantly-hyped films. We had two choices - either we made ourselves heard louder than these biggies, which was impossible; or we spoke in a much quieter tone than our competition. We've chosen the latter option.”
Thus the promotional strategy has been deliberately made so but this seems to have been working in its favour. “Talaash” is releasing on the 30th of November and is surely going to lay a heavy mark in Indian cinema. Talaash - Wallpapers

Vidya remains traditional on her wedding day as well

Vidya Balan is doing really well in her career. With films like “Paa”, “The Dirty Picture”, “No One Killed Jessica” and “Kahaani” she has cemented her positions as one of the most sought-after actresses of this industry.
However, in the recent times she has been making news not for her professional growth but for her personal life. It has been reported that very soon she will be tying the knot with her beau Siddharth Roy Kapur who is the head –honcho of UTV productions.
The actress has always been very traditional and will stick to her mind-set even for her D-day. The two will be getting married on the 14th of December. The ceremony will be a traditional one and will be attended by her family and her close friends.
This ceremony will not be planned at any five-star place, but will take place at the luxurious Cuffe Parade apartment which is at Jolly Maker Towers. The place belongs to her beau’s parents.
The wedding date has not been zeroed in to randomly but is well-thought out. This news has been unveiled by one of the actress’s closest friends. She said, “Vidya’s sister Priya also got married on December 14. The close-knit family considers this date to be extremely auspicious. From next year, this date will bring twice the happiness for the Balan family. Priya especially is on cloud nine.”
When queried about why Siddharth’s house at Bandra where he lives currently, was not considered as the venue, as it will be more convenient for their guests, the friend said, “The Jolly Maker apartment is much bigger. Besides the Bandra apartment is a rented one. And Siddharth is not sure if he wants to continue with it.”
The trousseau is being designed by the actress’s favourite designer Sabyasachi. She will be wearing a traditional South Indian saree with Sabyasachi touches on it on her special day.
After marriage, the couple will be living in their apartment at Juhu which is worth 14 crores. This apartment had been bought by Siddharth last year as a gift for Vidya. She has already given her touches to this house as she had been spending on accessories for the house since sometime.
The actress is currently busy shooting for “Ghanchakkar” opposite Emraan Hashmi. She will head for her break in a few days’ time.

Last year, Siddharth has purchased a sea facing bungalow worth Rs 14 crore for Vidya and after marriage the duo will move together to their dream house.

A friend of the family has explained “The Jolly Maker apartment is much bigger. Besides the Bandra apartment is a rented one. And Siddharth is not sure if he wants to continue with it.”

Gauri invited to Arjun’s B'day party, Shahrukh not

Another friendship in Bollywood has gone kaput and this time it is the two thick pals of Bollywood, Shahrukh Khan and Arjun Rampal drifted apart. Shahrukh who helped Arjun to firm his foot in Bollywood and Arjun who always stood by his best friend is no longer friends today. They are not even in talking terms. SRK is no longer a part of any celebration of Arjun. Arjun Rampl is celebrating his 40th birthday at Marrackesh and unfortunately the superstar is not in the guests list of Mehr Jessia. But the story of Gauri Khan is totally different. Gauri remains to be a thick friend of Gauri and she is heading to Marrackesh three days before the grand celebration.
"And not because SRK has other commitments and cannot be at Marrackesh. This is the alibi that's being set forward for SRK's absence at Arjun's party on 29th. But the truth is, Shah Rukh is no more on talking terms with Arjun. Their wives continue to be thick pals. In fact Gauri Khan is on top of Mehr Jessia's guest list for her husband's birthday party," says our source.
In fact, Gauri made clear to Mehr that her husband is not coming to the bash. The differences between the two actors has scattered their friends circle. Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan will not make to the party due to their closeness to Shahrukh. But Hrithik and Suzanne Roshan who is also friends of the Khan will be attending the party.
Whatever equation the husband shared, the girl camp comprises of beauties like Gauri Khan, Susanne Roshan, Mehr Jessia, Chunky Pandey's wife Bhavna and Sanjay Kapoor's wife Maheep continue to be thick friends.
The birthday boy Arjun who will have a working birthday in Kutch for Nikhil Advani’s D-day said about the guest list, "I know Mehr is planning this surprise party for me at Marrackesh which I am not supposed to know about. Who all are coming, I've no clue. I know my wife and daughters will be there."
About turning 40 Arjun said, "Is it really meant to be special? That's what people said when I turned 30. But I guess at 40 you begin to make good use of the experiences that you've gathered over the years. Earlier you are just running around trying to find your bearings."

Shahrukh finally expresses his feelings for Priyanka

Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra’s more than just friend approach has invited trouble to Shahrukh Khan and Gauri’s paradise. Following their closeness, Shahrukh Khan has not only lost his married life happiness but also lost few friends who stood by his side in thick and thin. Though the duo has stopped communicating in public, Shahrukh did not compress his feelings for Piggy Chops and finally spoke his heart out.
Talking to CNN-IBN, SRK said, “(I) Feel extremely sorry, for she (Priyanka) wasn’t shown the respect I show her, or other women. Priyanka Chopra is one of the closest friends that I have, she is very close to my heart, and always will be.”

Shahrukh Khan and Priyanka Chopra’s alleged love story occupied enough space at one point of time. Though media cooked and baked many love stories of the duo, SRK and Priyanka never spoke about their relationship in public.
When the report of their love affair became public, Priyanka had to face the irk of Gauri Khan and friends of SRK’s camp. She and Karan Johar even involved into a big brawl but one day Karan recognized his mistake and begged pardon from Priyanka. It was also heard that Gauri gave ultimatum to her husband that in future he should never work with Priyanka.
It is almost a year but Priyanka and Shahrukh still feared that if they share pleasantries in public then it might give birth to a new story.
It is said that Shahrukh and Priyanka came closer during the shooting of ‘Don’. They are said to very fond of each other but none of them cleared their relationship.

SRK repeats the famous DDLJ scene for “Chennai Express”

With Jab Tak Hai Jaan done with eyes are pinned on what is next for the actor, Shah Rukh Khan. His next film is going to be “Chennai Express” that is being directed by Rohit Shetty. The female lead opposite him is Deepika Padukone.
The film is being shot in Goa like every other film of Rohit Shetty. His ‘Golmaal’ series, ‘Singham’, ‘All the Best’ and ‘Bol Bachchan’ have all been shot in Goa and thus this film is nothing different.
Deepika Padukone has many films to her credit since her debut in 2007. She has played various characters and has dressed very fashionably for each of her films and has sported numerous looks as well. This film will see her in a different look all together. She resembles a typical South Indian girl from the village and looks quite convincing playing the part.
The train journey forms a pivotal part of the film. It works as the backdrop that takes the story forward and thus the title of the film has been kept as “Chennai Express”.
Recently a picture form the sets of the film were released on the net. The picture shows SRK standing near the door of the train while Deepika is in the platform moving towards him. This scene is reminiscent of the scene of the climax when Kajol is seen running in the platform to board the train with SRK trying to lend her a hand. This scene thus looks like an attempt to recreate the magic of the SRK-Kajol jodi.
However, a notable difference is in the fact that Deepika is only walking slowly and is not in a hurry to board the train.
The train sequence is being shot in Goa on the Vasco Railway Station. One of the platforms has been cordoned off for the shoot of this film. SRK has been busy shooting there since Saturday. A train has also been hired only for the shoot. The platform has been made to look like the Kalyan station of Mumbai.
A month back a scene had been shot at CST Railway Station for this film.       
A unit member from the sets, was quizzed about the resemblance of this film’s train sequence with that of DDLJ. He said “There is a resemblance, yes. But it’s not an attempt to recreate the scene. This happens to be an important part of the sequence of events.”

Anita Advani’s charges summons Dimple and family to court

On the wake of the yesteryear superstar Rajesh Khanna’s death, certain unsavory gossip about him became rife. It was concerning a certain Anita Advani who claimed that he had been Kaka’s live-in partner. This has spelled trouble for the actor’s family.
Anita Advani filed a case against his family asking for maintenance as she had been his live-in partner. This Thursday a metropolitan court asked his family members to appear before the court in connection to this case.
Anita Advani also complained of domestic violence carried out on her by Rajesh Khanna’s family members. Magistrate S S Deshpande on hearing the case recommended both the sides to settle this matter affably. He also spoke of referring this case to a mediator.
The time thus has been extended to the 4th of December. Dimple Kapadia, her two daughters Twinkle and Rinki and her son-in-law, actor Akshay Kumar have been summoned to the court on that day to hear about their view on settling the matter.
The magistrate has also made it known that if both the parties do not agree for a settlement he will hear the case and give his judgment within a month.
In the petition, Anita has accused Rajesh Khanna’s family of throwing her out of the bungalow named “Aashirwad”, where she lived. Thus she has filed the case under the Domestic Violence Act. She has thus asked for protection under the act, and has asked for access inside the bungalow which is situated in Bandra.
She has claimed to have been living in that house since 2003 until now. Following Rajesh Khanna’s death in July, she had been evicted out of the bungalow by his family. This has thus attracted domestic violence charges.
Anita Advani has also challenged the will that is known to have been executed by the actor himself before his death. But according to her, he has not left behind any sort of a will and has indicated that it has been forged by the actor’s family. She has suspected his family to have gained the impression of his thumb for the will when he was not capable of understanding anything due to his ill-health.
She has asked for financial relief as maintenance from Rajesh Khanna’s estate. She has appealed that she lived with Kaka in a “shared household”. The term has been defined by law as under the section of Domestic Violence “as a place where a man and woman live as husband and wife” and hence entitling herself to the maintenance charges.

Karan doesn't take me in his films, Akshay

Akshay Kumar is looking forward to the release of his next installment of ‘Khiladi’, ‘Khiladi 786’. ‘Khiladi’ is a tag that is totally attached to Akshay. Twenty years gone and still people remember him as Khiladi Kumar but Akki is satisfied with the reorganization, when he was asked about the Khiladi title, he said, “Ya, why not? Khiladi is my identity, what's the harm in being remembered for it? With all due respect, it's the eighth film in the franchise and that itself speaks for the popularity of the title. Here I must share with you that 20 years ago, when Abbas-Mustan suggested the title Khiladi to producer Ratan Jain, he was not in favour of it. Those days, titles were long-winded and Ratan felt that a short title won't work. But Abbas and Mustan were stubborn.

(1992) worked and, after that, people started having single word titles like Baazigar (1993), etc. Ironically, Ratan, who didn't fancy the word khiladi, went on to produce the next Khiladi film called Main Khiladi Tu Anari(1994). And, as they say, from then on, there has been no looking back”.
In the long tenure of his filmy career, Akshay Kumar has worked with several noted filmmakers but he did not till date got the opportunity to work with filmmaker Karan Johar. When Akshay was asked about not casting in Karan’s film, he replied, Karan doesn't take me in his films. He probably thinks I'm not good enough.
Akshay is in a happy space today. recently, he and Twinkle are blessed with a baby girl whom he named Nitara and he feels his family is complete now and said that his daughter brought luck for him. The birth of my daughter Nitara has made me happy and it has made my world complete. I have always believed that girls are 'Lady Luck' personified. When I married Twinkle, I got all the luck from her. My mother and my sister have given me luck. I am not their benefactor; they benefit me. My daughter has also brought me tremendous luck. OMG Oh My God! was a runaway hit and I owe it to my little one, Akki said.

Rajesh Khanna’s live-in partner Anita drags Dimple, Akshay to court

Yesteryear superstar Rajesh Khanna’s muse Anita Advanislapped a case on his family after his death. She filed case against all the members of Khanna’s family, Dimple Kapadia, his two daughters Twinkle and Rinki and his son-in-laws Akshay Kumar and Saran. She reportedly charged Rajesh Khanna of physically assaulting her when she was only 13. In her complaint, she said that Rajesh Khanna grabbed and kissed her when she was in her teens. She added that she kept silent then as he was a superstar and she was awe of him.
Anita Advani also accused the Khanna family of domestic violence. She filed case against all of them for evicting her from his bungalow on Carter Road in Bandra on November 8.
Following the allegation, on November 9, Magistrate S S Deshpande had ordered Khanna’s wife Dimple Kapadia, son-in-law and actor Akshay Kumar and daughters Twinkle Kumar and Rinke Khanna Saran to file their speak on or before November 27. Under Section 19 of the Act, Advani refrained, “dispossessing or in any other manner disturbing the possession of the aggrieved person from the shared household whether or not the respondent has a legal or equitable interest in the shared household”.
Advani said, “I have proof for all that I have claimed. I am looking forward for the court hearing.”
Anita Advani claimed that she took care of Rajesh Khanna during his last days when no one from his family was by his side. She claimed stake of Rajesh Khanna’s 150 crore property and she demanded maintenance of Rs 10 lakh per months.
She even claimed that when Rajesh Khanna was in the hospital, Dimple and Twinkle came and in her presence forced Khanna to sign on some legal documents. She said that she had the proof of the incident on her mobile phone. She added that she had a scuffle with Dimple as she asked her to delete the photos and videos from her mobile phones.

Deepika Padukone gets hurt on the set of ‘Ram Leela’

Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone injured on the set of ‘Ram Leela’. She suffered cuts and bruises while performing high-adrenaline steps for a dance number. Her legs rubbed through the rough surfaces. Despite severely hurt, the actress did not stop. After little medication, she continued the shoot. Dippy was shooting with her co-star Ranveer Singh.
“Several shots required close contact between both the leads. And the actress was left with severe swelling and red gashes since Ranveer sported many heavy accessories and piercings in the film. Some sequences required Ranveer to hit Deepika’s midriff several times — not to mention, swing her around and bang into it as part of the choreography! To add to the pain, the actress was also left with several cuts on her feet by the end of the shoot,” says a source close to Bhansali.
“She surprised all the crewmembers because she refused to act like a diva,” sums up the source.
Ranveer Singh developed six packs abs for the film. The film is based on Shakespheare ‘Romeo and Juliet’. At first Kareena Kapoor was signed for her wedding but later she was removed as Bhansali did not want to cast a married woman.

Photo: Shahrukh-Deepika shoot for 'Chennai Express'

Shah Rukh Khan was in the news recently for his much-hyped film “Jab Tak Hai Jaan” which has been declared a huge hit already. The film starred Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in the pivotal roles.
However, what gives a glimpse of the energy of Shah Rukh is the news that rather than celebrating the success of his film he has got back to work for his upcoming film “Chennai Express” that stars Deepika Padukone. The film is being directed by Rohit Shetty.
The film is being shot in Goa where Rohit Shetty had previously shot all his films. The “Golmaal series”, “Singham” and “Bol Bachchan” has been shot in this locale and therefore in the case of “Chennai Express” there is no difference.
Deepika has an interesting look in this film unlike the other films in which she has been seen. She portrays the typical look of a South Indian village girl. A source added, “She is sporting a half saree and two long plaits. SRK on the other hand has a very casual wardrobe in the film.”
The film has a train sequence that has been touted as the most important part of the film and it binds the story together.  A scene from the sets of the films have been published which shows the train sequence being shot. It seems like a repeat of the climax, from the film, “Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge”.  The only difference this time around is Deepika Padukone and not Kajol. Also Deepika seems to be walking past slowly rather than running to board the train.
Also DDLJ’s train sequence was shot in EURAIL, whereas the train sequence of this film will be shot using the Indian Railways that forms the setting of this film. This sequence definitely seems like a try to recreate the magic that the pair of SRK and Kajol had done earlier.
A source from the units of this film revealed, “Shah Rukh Khan has been shooting at the Vasco junction since Saturday….Platform number 2 has been cordoned off and the shoot is taking place there. A train has also been hired. This is Deepika's first outdoor shoot for the film.” He also added talking about the sequence, “There is a resemblance, yes. But it's not an attempt to recreate the scene. This happens to be an important part of the sequence of events.”
This film is slated for a release next year.

Satyamev Jayate: Aamir strongly reacts to Abdul Hakim's death

Aamir Khan stepped into television with the reality show- “Satyamev Jayate”- to bring about a change in the society. It upheld topics that people turn their backs towards. Topics like “domestic violence”, “untouchability”, “female feticide” and “child sexual abuse” were openly spoken about. It also offered help lines to complain against any issue like this.
On one of the episodes, a participant had openly spoken about the Khap panchayat and its bad side. This led to him being killed recently on the 22nd of November, in his village in Bulandshahar, in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
The victim’s name was Abdul Hakim who had shown the courage of speaking against the panchayat. He was shot dead by five persons publicly. He was on his way to a clinic to get medicines for his wife who was nine months pregnant. He was shot in the public place and he succumbed to the bullet wounds.
Actor Aamir Khan was contacted when the incident happened. He reacted strongly to this sudden development. He appealed to the police to provide his wife Mehawish and their daughter security. Mehawish also revealed that she and her daughter too were threatened to be killed by some of the villagers. Aamir Khan is at the moment in Jaipur and he was quoted as saying to the media, “I was told that Abdul`s village is in the Meerut region and I wanted to go there but can`t go right now due to my pre-scheduled programs.”
He condemned the murder saying, “I have raised the issue at every possible forum and will continue my efforts to bring justice and relief to the aggrieved family.”

Reema Kagti expresses her desire to team up with Aamir again

Talaash” is in the news heavily, more so because the film is gearing for a release on the 30th of November, 2012. The film stars Aamir Khan, Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor in pivotal roles.
Reema Kagti who previously debuted as a director with “Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd.”, is the director of this film. She is also the co-writer of “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” along with Zoya Akhtar. The film is a joint venture by Aamir Khan of Aamir Khan Productions and Riteish Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar of Excel Entertainment.
When Reema was asked about her equation with Aamir Khan and if she would want to work with him again she expressed her willingness quite like this, “I would cut off my arms to work with him again. Both of us are very obsessive about what we do. So we got along like a house on fire.”
The film belongs to the genre of suspense thriller. It is a genre that is excelling and garnering the attention of the masses at the moment. What is interesting is that the entire cast and crew of the film have been tight-lipped regarding the storyline of this film.
At the first promotional outing when Reema revealed a little bit about the film she was stopped immediately by Aamir and the other two producers. Thus it is evident that they want to keep the suspense building among the audiences regarding the plot of this film. When she was quizzed about this, she said "If I tell you the plot then the three producers would have me shot dead. Since it has an element of surprise, it is best that you go and watch it rather than hear the story from me.”
Zoya Akhtar too has co-written this film. Speaking about their future collaborations Reema Kagti said “Currently Zoya and I are developing two scripts. It's too premature to talk about them. We are trying to do some kind of memorable film making.”
Reema Kagti also made it known that she is looking for new talent. When queried she said, “I would definitely like to scout for new talent in the city. I am a movie buff and I watch Bengali films too.” She also expressed that she would want to work with Amitabh Bachchan. She was quoted as saying, “When I was a kid I used to see all 'masala' commercial Hindi films. I loved Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, I was in fact obsessed. I wanted to be like him. As a kid I used to imitate him, I used to have middle parting hair, try and speak dialogues from his films

Priyanka to act in the biopic on Mary Kom

Priyanka Chopra gave a powerful performance in “Barfi”. She dominated almost all the frames and made her own mark opposite the other talented actor Ranbir Kapoor in the film.
After that there had been talks about what film she will be seen in next. Recent speculations suggest that she has been approached by ace director Sanjay Leela Bhansali to star in a woman-centric film. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has previously directed film like “Devdas”, “Hum Dil de Chuke Sanam” and “Black”. The films that came later-“Saawariya” and “Guzaarish”- all bombed at the box-office. Therefore he is in need of a desperate hit to keep his foothold in the industry.
Sources are now claiming that she has been selected by the filmmaker to star in the film on Olympic bronze medal winner Mary Kom. It has been reported that Priyanka will start preparing for the role from the month of January, next year. The project is slated to start filming from early 2013.
A source closely associated to this project said, “Priyanka was in talks with the production house for quite a while now. We were trying to work out her dates and finally things are settled. She is on board to play lead. We intend to begin our workshop with Priyanka and Mary soon.”
As part of her preparation Priyanka will not only learn the sport from Mary Kom within a short span of time (four months) but also live with Mary’s family in Manipur to know and understand more about her.
Also what is being speculated is that if there will be any male lead actor cast for the film as it revolves around Mary Kom.
In the past too, Sanjay Leela Bhansali had been in talks with Priyanka Chopra for another project that was based on Gujarati Romeo-Juliet. Sources have added, “But that didn't work out. PC was keen to do this film and Bhansali thinks she will be perfect for Mary's role. They met a couple of times to discuss the script and she finally signed the dotted lines."
The director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Priyanka Chopra were tried to contact but they remained unreachable to validate the news. Priyanka has previously been part of women-centric films like “Fashion”, “Whats your Rashee?” and “ Saat Khoon Maaf”. Deepika Padukone earlier had been considered for this role, but later Priyanka chopra was finalised. It is her stature that matches with Mary Kom’s and therefore the offer went to her .

Karisma's husband Sunjay slams divorce report

Ever since Karisma Kapoor married to Delhi based businessman Sunjay Kapur, their marriage has been under scanner for their troubled marriage. Karisma’s nine years of marriage has been said to be troublesome and full of problems due to Sunjay. He was not totally loyal to his wife after marriage. He maintained an extra marital affair with Delhi socialite Priya Sachdev (ex-wife of NRI businessman Vikram Chatwal). Even after the birth of their first child Samaira, he did not come to the right path. Following the disturbance, Karisma left Delhi, Sunjay’s house and has been leaving with his mother Babita for seven years. Many a times, alleged divorce report of Karisma and Sunjay came up but there was no confirmation from either side. This time also the duo hit the headlines for their divorce but Sunjay totally denied.
Slamming reports of divorce that have been doing the rounds, Sunjay said, “Why don`t you ask Karisma what really happened then? She is a celebrity. If she is not saying anything, it is because this is none of anyone`s business.”

Kapur’s spokesperson cleared the air about their divorce and said, “Mr Kapoor wants Karisma back in Delhi. It is not easy for him to go on living alone. It`s been seven years."

In many occasion, Sanjay has been spotted hanging out with Priya Sachdev (ex-wife of NRI businessman Vikram Chatwal) and that in turn had raised some eyebrows. However, denying the affair, Kapur’s spokesperson said, “She is just a good friend he hangs out with.”

Sunjay was reportedly not invited to sis-in-law Kareena Kapoor’s wedding as he insisted to bring his girlfriend Priya to the wedding.
Karisma has two children from Sunjay, Samaira and Kiaan.
