‘And once again a word of kindness to the electronic media for their non interference and dignified distance… thank you!!

‘A word of appreciation too, to the print media for highlighting a few salient points… our joy in welcoming the girl child… and emphasising the commendable desire of Aishwarya in having a normal delivery without any epidural or pain killers. The often coined phrase ‘too posh to push’ was put to rest in her case… she was determined to do it the way she felt was correct!’ he added.

Take a look at one of the morphed pictures doing round on the internet……

Ranveer Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha at ‘Lootera’ launch

Ranveer Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha are set to star together in their next project ‘Lootera’ to be made under the direction of Vikramaditya Motwane.  The film will be shot in West Bengal and the hilly regions around that area. The musical notes have been given by Amit Trivedi (Dev D fame).

This will be Ranveer’s first project outside the Yash Raj Films banner, with whom Ranveer has done Band Baaja Baraat, and the upcoming Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl.

Sonakshi Sinha is all set to start the shoot of ‘Dabangg 2’ in March 2012 where she will be playing Rajjo again, opposite Salman Khan. The actress reveals that the story moves forward in the sequel to her hit debut.

“I don’t think I can divulge too much about a film that’s yet to go on floors. Arbaaz (director, producer and script writer) may not like it. We have to try and keep as much as we can under wraps till the film’s release, next Christmas,” says Sonakshi, adding, “Since I was shown pregnant in the last few frames of the film, I’m quite sure I’ll be playing mommy to Chulbul Jr. Actually, I wouldn’t mind if he also sports a moustache like his handsome father!”

Meanwhile, Sonakshi Sinha displayed her lighter side by posting this cute fun pic on Twitter, with the caption: “Mickey Mouse’s birthday today! Wishing him, Mini style

Sunny Leone arrives in Mumbai to make a Big Boss entry

This is a well known fact that the entry of Pamela Anderson in the previous season of Big Boss had shot up its TRP ratings. Following the same pattern, the makers of Big Boss have signed up celebrated porn star Sunny Leone, whose real name is Karen Malhotra, to make an entry in the house.

Even before Leone makes it into the house, Twitter is abuzz with status updates which prove that the makers have taken just the right decision. Here are some of them:

“Sunny Leone, come and make Bigg Boss 5 exciting. I am sick of these hyterical women and twerps pretending to be men.(sic)”

“Now expect Shiv Sena to greet Sunny Leone at the airport or breaking the studio/set of ColorsTV/Bigg Boss 5(sic)”

“Just found out they brought ‘Sunny Leone’ to Bigg Boss. Guess what my new favourite show is!(sic)”

“Girls will leave the industry claiming that they found God. Well, the fact is, God has always been with them the entire time ~ Sunny Leone(sic)”

Sunny Leone has already arrived in Mumbai to be a part of Big Boss. Check out Sunny as she steps in Mumbai….

The music launch of ‘Ghost’

After coming out clean from the much defamatory rape allegation, actor Shiney Ahuja is trying to revive his career with forthcoming horror flick ‘Ghost’ which has Sayali Bhagat as his co-star. The makers of the flick have launched the music of the same and the event was graced by Sanjay Dutt himself.

On the occasion, Sanjay Dutt told the reporters,“I came to launch the music of Ghost because of Bharat Bhai as I can’t say no to him.”

Sanjay also wished Shiney Ahuja good luck and said: “May his film work; and his personal problems vanish soon.”

it may be recalled here that Sayali Bhagat had accused Shiney Ahuja of sexual harassment during the shoot of the film. However, with the warmth the two shared at the event, it can be said that the two have made up.

Veena Malik performs her own stunts in her 3D horror flick

Her romance with Ashmit Patel in the last season of Big Boss kick started Pakistani actress Veena Malik’s career in Bollywood. At present, she has a 3D horror flick in her kitty for which she is currently shooting in a jungle in southern India.

Talking about the flick, Veena said: ‘It’s a 3D horror film with Telugu filmmaker Hemant Madhukar, and it’s really hard to shoot.’

‘For one, we are shooting in the wilderness. There are no luxury hotels, no daily comforts. Then it’s a 3D film, not like the other 3D films in Hindi where the 2D format is converted into 3D. We are shooting in 3D which means every shot takes hours sometimes. It’s really time consuming because I am playing both the ‘thriller’ and ‘horror’ element of the film,’ she added.

Veena detailed that she has done all the stunts in the film on her own. ‘(There’s) lots of wirework and flips and somersaults and bruises and cuts. I am roughing it out here in the jungles and enjoying every bit of it!’ she revealed.

For those who are still unaware, the actress will appear in the reality show ‘Swayamvar’ as the next star after Rakhi Sawant, Rahul Mahajan and Ratan Rajput.

Mahek Chahal finds a new admirer

Since the time Mahek Chahal appeared on the smaller screen as a ‘Big Boss 5’ inmate, she has been garnering a lot of attention with her sultry figure and also because of her ugly fights with other housemates. However, this time she caught the attention of Bollywood hunk John Abraham who came into the bigg boss house to promote his upcoming film’Force’.

After coming out of the house when the hosts Salman Khan & Sanjay Dutt asked him as to who was his favourite amongst the girls in the house, John replied with a shy smile that it was Mahek Chahal.

It may be mentioned here that this Norway-based model and actress Mahek Chahal is known for being close to Salman Khan. She has bagged her films Wanted and Main Aur Mrs Khanna as well as her entry in Bigg Boss with the Salman’s recommendations.

Owing to her continuous spats with her housemates, she has been nominated for three times but she is confident of her popularity and was reported saying, “Harr hafte (nominate) karo, aur (main) harr hafte chapaat doongi tum logon ke mooh par… jin logon ne nominate kiya hai. Har hafte aise hi, jab main rahoongi, unka hi chehra neeche hoga.”

‘RA.One’ fails to beat ‘Bodyguard’, ’3 Idiots’ at BoxOffice

Bollywood News:  It has managed to set a few records at the ticket window, but post the initial draw, the collections of ‘RA.One’ are falling dramatically. So will Shah Rukh Khan‘s ‘’ match the collections of Salman’s ‘Bodyguard’ or Aamir’s ’3 idiots’? We did some number crunching to get you the real picture.

While Shah Rukh Khan‘s magnum opus ‘Ra One’ will end up making a profit in the long run, it now looks like the King Khan will not be beating the records set by Aamir Khan’s ’3 Idiots’ or Salman Khan’s ‘Bodyguard’.

It has been stressed that ‘Ra.One’ did set it’s share of records at the box office – which include a 5 day net collection of 96 crore and a single day collection of 23 and a half crore but these figures include collections from the Tamil and Telugu versions of the film.

Thanks to SRK‘s promotioinal efforts ‘Ra.One’ got off to a flying start once it opened on Diwali – however it does seem that negative reviews and word of mouth has dented the film’s collections after the weekend.

After a high of 17crore on Sunday, Ra.One’s net collections nose-dived to 6.5 crore on Monday and settled at 4crore on Wednesday.

RA.One collections dive

Sunday: 17cr

Monday: 6.5cr

Wednesday: 4cr

Rakesh Sharma, Operating Head, Cinemax speaks about dipping collections and if screens are reduced in cinemas. “In terms of gross worldwide collections – Aamir Khan’s ’3 Idiots’ leads the pack with a total of 375 crore followed by Salman Khan’s Bodyguard at 253 crore. Ra.One’s collections stand at 192 crore as of now and it looks rather impossible that it will be able to beat the other two even in the long run.”

Bollywood Blockbusters

3 Idiots: 375cr

Bodyguard: 253cr

RA.One: 192cr

While positive word of mouth kept ’3 Idiots’ going at the box-office ‘Ra.One’ seems to be losing steam post it’s first week.

Komal Nahata, Film Trade Analyst speaks on how much the film is expected to collect worldwide and its comaprision of 3 idiots collection.

“At over 150 crore ‘Ra.One”s cost has also dented it’s profitability since both ’3 Idiots’ and ‘Bodyguard’ were made at half the price of SRK’s magnum opus. Shah Rukh will now be looking forward to ‘Don 2' to make magic at the box office.”

No coverage of Aishwarya’s baby

Bollywood Gossip: Govt issues guidelines barring TV channels from reporting about Bollywood Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan‘s impending delivery.

The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (I&B) has sent some guidelines barring the channels from reporting about Aishwarya Rai’s impending delivery.

Apparently inspired by a tweet by Amitabh Bachchan, the Broadcast Editor’s association has set some strict guidelines for television channels.

Apart from other guidelines, it says that the channels cannot place their OB vans outside the hospital or any other location and no MMS or photography of the child can be shown unless the Bachchan family voluntarily parts with it.

So those of you expecting to get a minute-by-minute coverage of the arrival of the child are in for a disappointment.

Karan Johar lately tweeted, “Katrina Kaif is doing a full on item song in Agneepath….its a total swinging number called Chikni Chameli….we shoot it in a week!!” Katrina Kaif is definitely a great choice for the item number. The much awaited Agneepath will grab more eyeballs with the item song.

Item numbers have become the hottest trend in Bollywood. Even the best crop of Bollywood actresses doesn’t mind doing item numbers now. From Aishwarya Rai‘s Kajra Re, Malaika Arora‘s Munni to Mallika Sherawat‘s Mayya Mayya and Jalebi Babi, all these songs became extremely popular with the masses. Katrina‘s Sheila Ki Jawani was the only good thing about Tees Maar Khan, which sank without a trace. Preity Zinta, Shilpa Shetty and Bipasha Basu have also done item numbers in past.

I wanted Esha to do something other than acting – Hema Malini

 Working in Bollywood is a demanding job, says Hema Malini adding that this is the reason why she was not very keen on her daughter Esha Deol joining filmdom as an actress.

“It is difficult to survive in the industry. You have to go through so much in this career. You have to be successful, but if your movies don’t work you are sad and then there comes a burden to do much better. You have to keep working harder and harder, emotionally it disturbs a lot,” said Hema.

“In other professions, it is not noticeable. Here you are immediately in the eyes of people that’s why I was not very keen. I wanted her to do something else, something like interior designing, or be a dancer, but she wanted to act and everyone should be given an opportunity. She is indeed a very fine actress,” she added.

Hema re-launched Esha with her directorial venture “Tell Me O Kkhuda” but the film could not put a lasting impression on the audiences.

Rockstar – Movie Review

 Film: “Rockstar”
Cast: Ranbir Kapoor, Nargis Fakri and Moufid Aziz
Director: Imtiaz Ali
Rating: 25star

Here is a film made on the life of a rockstar whose tryst with destiny does not touch your heart.

In a grey dull European city, we aren’t sure if the frizzy haired, Indo-Persian dressed Rockstar (Ranbir Kapoor) is detained or mugged while he fight backs his detractors to reach the venue to deliver an electrifying performance.

In fact, Imtiaz Ali’s “Rockstar” is a love story of Janardhan Jakhar (Ranbir Kapoor) and Heer (Nargis Fakhri). Janardhan is a naïve Haryanvi college going buffoon. He is rustic with no confidence in his own talent, but cherishes the dream of becoming a rockstar. With a hairdo and clothes that resemble the fashion of the early 1970s, Janardhan, or JJ as he calls himself, is constantly trying to ape rockstar Jim Morrison and is constantly seeking a formula to become one.

His confidants, college mates and college canteen owner Kattara Bhai tell him that to be a rockstar one needs to experience life altering love, heartbreak and self discovery. And his mind ticks till he spots Heer (Nargis Fakhri).

Heer is the diva of the college, poised and polished very lady like. Their union seems unfeasible. After a few scenes, we learn that she is to be married off within 20 days and wants to experience all that is forbidden.

The duo makes a list and experience life without emotions for each other. In due course, JJ is christened Jordan, which seems to be an apt name for a rockstar.

As the mystery unfolds over layers of flashbacks, it takes the story to a designated plateau and halts.

At stages, you feel you are watching a documentary, full of montages of memories lined up over good music. Be it Sufi music or the shehnai-guitar jugalbandi, A.R. Rahman’s music touches your heart.

Performances are superb. Nargis is a sure threat to Katrina Kaif. Shammi Kapoor sharing screen space with Ranbir touches a raw nerve. Over all, Ranbir carries away accolades for his histronics.

Coming from a director who has given wonderful hits like “Jab We Met” and “Love Aaj Kal”, “Rockstar” is a disappointment. It’s evident that there is something amiss with the characterisation of this love story.

During the entire transition it is not revealed how Jordan becomes a symbol of rage nor does it reveal the ‘junoon’ of Nargis’ character.

With some beautiful wide angle shots, the film captures scenic Kashmir, Prague and Delhi in a way that has not been seen in the recent past. The editing too is crisp but the last half hour is agonisingly similar to Shahid Kapoor’s “Mausam”. It just goes on and on.

The dialogues are refreshingly rustic and funny. An extra star in the rating for Ranbir’s performance.

Secret behind Ranveer Singh’s six pack

 After the Khans and Ajay Devgn, Ranveer Singh of “Band Baaja Baaraat” famehas toned himself with six-pack abs for his next release “Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl”.

The 26-year-old actor went on a strict 48-hour diet regime and stayed hungry for nearly two days to get the perfect look, according to a source from production company, Yash Raj Films.

In “Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl”, Ranveer will once again be seen with his “Band Baaja Baaraat” co-star Anushka Sharma. Directed by Maneesh Sharma, the film will release Dec 9.

Earlier, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan flaunted six-pack abs in “Om Shanti Om”, “Bodyguard” and “Ghajini” respectively.

This is happiest phase of my life – Sunil Shetty

 Sunil Shetty says he’s signing films and receiving adulation from fans even after two decades in the industry and can’t ask for anything more.

“The love, the affection I get in the industry is something that I am very, very happy about. I can’t afford to complain. I never planned to do cinema and I am still here. Still signing films, still doing a lot of work. I still say no to films. What more can I ask for?” Sunil told IANS.

If he is content with his professional life, he is equally happy in his personal life.

“I am always happy. I have got two beautiful children, a happy family. When I am not working, I like to spend time with the family. I am an outdoor guy and I love playing sport,” he added.

Vancouver bids to host IIFA in 2013

 Vancouver in Canada is in the running to host in 2013 the Bollywood extravaganza — the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Weekend and Awards.

Christy Clark, the premier of British Columbia, has invited Wizcraft International Entertainment-owned property IIFA to hold its 14th edition in Vancouver. The 12th edition took place in Toronto this year.

“If you could put what happened in Toronto in Vancouver, it will be great. Vancouver has a vast Indian population and one of the youngest Indian populations in Canada. It is a place where IIFA will feel at home,” Clark said in a statement.

Clark met members from the Hindi film fraternity including IIFA Advisory Board members; Ramesh Sippy, president of the Film and Television Producers Guild; actor superstar Anil Kapoor and others in Mumbai Sunday.

She tried her best to sell Vancouver as a perfect destination for IIFA – an annual three-day celebration of Indian Cinema with a film festival, briefings, a worldwide film premiere, a global business forum, an IIFA Foundation charity event and the IIFA Awards night.

“We put up a great show for the Winter Olympics 2010 and we will put up a great show for IIFA. If we can bring IIFA to Vancouver, there are so many things we can communicate through this wonderful medium, the business of doing business.

“I promise you, we know we have to do a lot work to bring IIFA to Vancouver. It is the heart of creativity in Canada and it is also the gateway to North America in more ways than one. People will say, ‘Man, those Winter Olympics were good but IIFA was better!’” she added.

Clark also invited industry stalwarts, actors, directors and producers, among others to come to British Columbia to shoot Indian movies.

Andre Timmins, the IIFA director, said: “We are in the process of finalising the destination for IIFA 2012 and 2013. The remarkable success over the years and especially after its North American premiere in Toronto earlier this year, IIFA has sparked global interest and we have received several bids from countries vying to host the Weekend and Awards.

“We understand this as a sign of the growing importance of India in the world economy and how the Indian film industry has become an international phenomenon and we hope to further this endeavour,” he added.

Wax statue biggest honour – Kareena Kapoor, Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor, who has been immortalised in wax at Madame Tussaud’s, says it is an honour to be in the league of Indian luminaries like Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan and Sachin Tendulkar.

“I think being waxed at Madame Tussaud’s is one of the biggest honours I have ever received. In my whole career, I think to be given this particular honour is very rare,” said Kareena.

The 31-year-old, who made her debut with “Refugee” in 2000, gives credit to her fans.

“It is obviously because of you guys and all my fans who have made it possible and made my dream come true,” she said.

Kareena’s wax statue, which cost 150,000 pounds, was unveiled at the musuem in Blackpool Oct 27, a day after the release of her latest film “RA.One”.

“I never really thought that I would be waxed or that my statue would stand besides that of famous personalities in museum. Whether it is Mr. Bachchan, or Shah Rukh or Sachin Tendulkar…. really never thought I would be standing next to them. But thank you guys for making my dream possible,” she said.

Currently, the actress has her kitty full with projects like “Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu”, “Agent Vinod”, Reema Kagti’s untitled project and Madhur Bhandarkar’s “Heroine”. – IANS

Big B dismisses reports on Ash's delivery

While reports were doing rounds on social networking sites that B-town actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has given birth to a baby boy on Friday, her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan dismissed the news on Saturday.

"Getting congratulatory messages on Aishwarya delivering a boy!!! Guess they know more than even she does!! False and incorrect news," Big B tweeted.
Speculations were high that Ash would give birth to her child on the unique date in the calendar that showed 11.11.11.

On Friday, the social networking sites flooded with special messages that the B-town beauty has given birth to a baby boy.

However, their predictions were all dismissed by the Bachchans.

The frenzy over the first child of Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan is so high that bookies have already placed bets on the gender of the baby, media reports said.
