Enjoy the official trailer of film ‘Kai Po Che’!

Here’s the very first trailer of Rock On director Abhishek Kapoor’s latest movie, Kai Po Che, an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s book The 3 Mistakes of My Life.

The movie features three friends, TV actors Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh and Rajkumar Yadav as Ishan, Omi and Govind. The music, by Amit Trivedi, adds a lot of drama to the movie.

The first trailer opens with the three friends having a fun conversation inside a car on a highway. The film headlines Amrita Puri as the female lead.

Director Abhishek Kapoor says Kai Po Che was a complex film for him to make.

“It is a difficult film to make and it took me more than two-and-a-half, three years to put this story together,” he told at the wrap-up party.

The tale is about the journey of three friends, as they discover cricket, religion and business in their respective fields. Set against the backdrop of religious politics, the story underlines the three mistakes made by Govind. The film as well as the book is set in Gujarat, so the title Kai Po Che.

The movie is slated to release on February 22, 2013 and looks very promising.

“I am very nervous because this puts a lot of pressure on you, stylish debutante and stuff like that,” told the actor.

Shilpa Shetty gives a special welcome to her fan Mahi Hussain!

Shilpa Shetty couldn’t have been more kind and loving. When her fan Mahi Hussain from meerut was given the option to live in Shilpa’s shoes for a day, the girl was more than happy, but little did she know about the surprise Shilpa had for her in store.

Shilpa welcomed the 18-year-old to her house here, and chatted with her in her lounge as part of UTV Stars’ show “Live My Life 2.

Maahi had a huge collection of Shilpa’s photos and she was overjoyed the meet the actress. Drinking hot water, to working out in the gym, Maahi was doing everything Shipa does on a regular day to day basis.
She even met Shilpa’s close friends, designer Nandita Mahtani and business associate, Kiran Bawa.

I am not interested in the 100 crore club: Sonakshi Sinha

Sonakshi Sinha is having a dream run in Bollywood. Since she entered the industry, she has worked with the biggest stars and in a year has already been a part of three 100 crore movies, Dabangg, Rowdy Rathore and Son Of Sardar. While some actresses strive hard to choose the right movies and be a part of this club, Sonakshi has pulled it off quite easily. Now, the actress is all set to be part of another film that without doubt will join the 100 crore club. Yes, she will be seen opposite Salman Khan once again in Dabangg 2. 

However, Sonakshi tells she isn’t interested in the 100 crore club.

So ask Sonakshi if she has a strategy in place of selecting only 100 crore ventures and she excitedly tells, “I don’t think it that way. At least for me as an actor when somebody comes with a narration I don’t look at from 100 crore point. Whether a particular film will rake in 100 crores. Nobody, in fact, thinks that way. If I like the narration, if I can relate and feel emotionally attached I go for the film. If I am excited about a particular film I go ahead signing it.”

That’s not it, the young actress is said to be a lucky charm for Salman, Akshay and Ajay as she has delivered 3 big hits with them.

When Sonakshi was asked about this, she got slightly ticked off. She told, “This tag keeps changing from person to person. It is being given to me today. Yesterday it was with someone else. Tomorrow it will be held on some other person. So, I don’t take it seriously or get carried away with it. On the contrary, I feel lucky that I could be part of such wonderful films and got the opportunity to work with such good stars.”
It’s been two years since the time she made her debut in the industry. Ask her if she sees any changes in herself as an actor and what all things she learnt being here and she tells, “I think with every film you get to learn something new. Every time you get to work with different set of people so there’s constant learning. You keep growing with each film and every interaction. And, for me, I think I have that thing that I can learn very quick from people.”

Dabangg 2 is all set to hit screens this Friday. The movie is directed by Arbaaz Khan and stars Salman and Sonakshi in the lead roles. 

I can guarantee for Race 2: John Abraham

John Abraham is looking forward to his releases in 2013. The actor tells that it will be the biggest year for him in his career. First of all, he stars in Race 2 which is the sequel to Race and promises a lot of action and thrills, mainly because Abbas-Mustan has called the shots. The actor tells that the movie is unpredictable and audience who liked Race will definitely love its sequel.

John Abraham told, “Yes, Race 2 is a quintessential whodunit thriller by Abbas-Mustan. Audience that enjoyed RACE will love RACE 2 as well, that’s something that I can guarantee.”

While Race 2 is starting the year for him, he has his most ambitious film till date, Shootout At Wadala, creating some fantastic pre-release buzz as well.

John told, “This is being planned as a film which is bigger and better than the best. Sanjay (Gupta), Ekta (Kapoor) and I are on a wicket where we understand what Shootout At Wadala is going to do for us. We need to up the quotient now. I am again looking at an action zone here and what I can promise is that over and above the drama and thrills, you would see some real action unfolding on screen.”

While Race 2 releases on 26th January next year, Shootout At Wadala is all set to hit the screens on 1st May 2013.

The chirpy Alia Bhatt’s romances with Randeep Hooda on ‘Highway’!

Alia Bhatt has had a dream start. The actress received superb reviews for her act in SOTY and now according to reports; the actress will be seen opposite Randeep Hooda in Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Highway’. Imitiaz Ali, who has directed some of the finest romantic movies in recent times like Jab We Met and Rockstar, is all set to direct the newcomer Alia and Randeep who was last seen in Jism 2.

It is being said that the movie is a love story of two extremely opposite people. It will be exciting to watch the young and chirpy Alia romancing Randeep Hooda.

A month back news were rife that Imitiaz was very keen on casting Ranbir and Deepika for a movie, but due to Ranbir’s busy schedule, who’s is currently shooting for two back-to-back movies, Abhinav Singh Kashyap’s BESHARAM and Anurag Kashyap’s BOMBAY VELVET, Imitiaz decided to move ahead and start his other project HIGHWAY.

The movie will be produced by Imtiaz Ali and Sajid Nadiadwala.

Imtiaz is famously known for the magic he can create between a new lead pair. Do you think he can recreate the magic with Randeep and Alia?

‘Mr. India 2’ sequel with Anil Kapoor and Sridevi without old villain ‘Mogambo’!

We had reported previously that a sequel to ‘Mr. India’, titled ‘Mr. India 2 is being planned. Now, filmmaker Boney Kapoor has confirmed the news, clarifying that the movie will be a sequel and not a remake of the 1987 hit Mr. India. He also verifies that Anil Kapoor and Sridevi will be a part of the movie. However, there will be no ‘Mogambo’, but a new villain in the movie.

“Obviously, there won’t be a Mogambo unless we are remaking the same movie. As of now, we don’t have plans of remaking the same film. We are working on a sequel. If there is a sequel, Mogambo won’t be there, there would be a new villain,” Kapoor told.

Buzz had it that Salman Khan was being considered for the villain’s role. However, Boney Kapoor brushes off the rumors.

Kapoor told, “If I had my way, I would plan every film with Salman Khan. But this is not in my hands; it will be according to the script.”

Sridevi and Anil Kapoor were the lead stars in the original film too.

“Well, of course she (Sridevi) will be a part of ‘Mr. India 2 for sure. We are yet to finalize a script. Along with Anil, she will be part of it,” Boney Kapoor told.

“My journey with her began with ‘Mr. India’, so obviously the journey has to continue and how can it continue without her, especially when it’s ‘Mr. India’?” he added.

Presently Kapoor is focusing on No Entry Mein Entry.

“But before I get down to ‘Mr. India’, we have just finished the script for ‘No Entry Mein Entry’.” 

Rapists should be hanged till death: Salman Khan

The news of a Delhi girl being raped and now, who is battling for her life in a city hospital, came as a shock to the Bollywood megastar Salman Khan. Sharing his views on the kind of punishment these rapists deserve, Salman told, the culprits should be hanged till death.

“In my view, there should be a death sentence for all rapists. Such things have no role in our life. I feel disgusted after hearing such things. For me, this is a third grade crime. I also believe that there should be a norm that if a rapist goes to jail, he should be beaten till death,” told the 46-year-old.

The brutal incident took place in the capital city on Sunday night, when the victim and her male friend boarded a bus to their way back home.

Salman further added, “The first thought which comes to the mind is – such people should be killed – but there are too many things which we have to follow. It is a shame that such a thing has happened, how can somebody commit such a heinous crime.”

The actor is very upset about the recent incident and said; people should not tolerate such crime anymore.
“I think Indian society needs to be ‘dabangg’ (bold) in their approach. I recently read a news where a girl was being molested and people standing nearby were making videos on their phones. This is not the real India and I don’t think if such incidents can ever happen in front of my eyes,” he added. 

Deepika Padukone’s tussle with Anushka!

At the Big Star Entertainment Awards 2012, Deepika Padukone, while interacting with the media, cleared airs about her rumored fight with Anushka Sharma, besides talking about her forthcoming movie with Ranbir Kapoor, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani.

Deepika Padukone’s character in Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani is very real and close to her real self.
“Actually ‘Yeh Jawani…’ is very similar to me in person like Veronica was not. I think Veronica, as a character, as a person is very different from how I am personally but ‘Yeh Jawani…’ is very similar to how I am,” the 27-year-old told.

Directed by Ayan Mukerji, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani also stars Kalki Koechlin.

Talking about her tussle with actress Anushka Sharma, Deepika told, “There is no truth to this and I always wish her well.”

It seems that, rumors were that both Deepika and Anushka have been fighting for the lead role opposite Salman Khan in Kick.

In the meantime, Anushka Sharma recently took a potshot at Deepika Padukone. She told, “There is no comparison between Deepika and me. Nothing links us. We do different kind of films. In fact she has done more films. I’ve been choosy. I have not picked up just about any role that came my way.”

Giving a word to her peers, Anushka further added, “Stop throwing garbage at me since I don’t throw garbage at you.” 

Kangana Ranaut goes sans make-up for ‘Queen’!

Kangana Ranaut is all set to go de-glam for her forthcoming movie, ‘Queen’. Here is the first look and Kangana looks very sweet and innocent.

The movie requires her to be natural and so, Kangana has been asked to use minimal make-up for the movie. Queen is directed by Vikas Bahl of Chillar Party fame.

It is heard that the director hasn’t even hired a make-up artist for the slightest of make up touch ups.
A source updates, “Kangana, who is known to portray overtly sexy and glamorous looks, has been transformed completely for this movie. Her styling and make-up is minimalist. Vikas insisted that Kangana, who looks very pretty and vulnerable without make-up, should go natural.”

But, for some parts where she will require applying make-up, Kangana will help herself.

The movie essays Kangana Ranaut as a simpleton who decides to go solo on her honeymoon after her wedding falls through. If sources are to be believed, Kangana’s past experiences have been integrated into the script.

“The character is quirky whimsical emotional and volatile like Kangana. The line between the real Kangana and her character is so flimsy that Kangana many times ended up borrowing from her experiences to play the role,” a source told.

Kangana Ranaut’s small-town look in the early part of the movie is inspired by Jaya Bachchan in Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Guddi and Rani Mukherjee in Bunty Aur Babli. 

Shahrukh Khan & Katrina Kaif are the best reel life couple!

Shahrukh Khan and Katrina Kaif bagged the Best Romantic On-Screen Couple award at the Big Star Entertainment Awards in Mumbai. King Khan was admired for his chemistry with sexy diva Katrina Kaif.
In spite of winning a plethora of trophies in his two-decade career, bagging an award still excites Shahrukh Khan.

King Khan took to twitter and tweeted, “Got two awards, must admit, as many I get, the excitement is the same. Am so happy, want to work even harder. Awards to me are like candy to a kid.”

At the Big Star Entertainment Awards, SRK won not one but two awards, Entertainer Of The Year and Best Romantic On-Screen Couple along with co-star Katrina Kaif, both for his latest film Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
“‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ will always be a special movie for me. I will always be thankful to Yash-ji. I get really excited with awards. No matter how many I have got, they have the same affect on me, like they did when I was new in the industry. I almost become like a kid in the candy store,” told Shah Rukh.

“This was the first time I worked with her and see what happened! Katrina is a very hardworking girl and it was a pleasure working with her. And as far as romance is concern, I am the best one here,” jibed Shah Rukh. 

Sonam Kapoor clothes on auction, this Christmas!

This Christmas, Sonam Kapoor is all set to auction her designer clothes online for charity. Known for her uber cool fashion sense, Sonam made this statement on Saturday.

The actress has seemingly collaborated with friend and stylist Pernia Qureshi’s online fashion boutique, Pernia’s Pop-Up Shop. The proceeds from the auction will go towards Smile Foundation, an NGO which works to support poor children.

“Pernia and I wanted to do something for children this season. So we thought it would be great if I give like 50 pieces from my wardrobe and the proceeds go to Smile Foundation,” Sonam said journalists.

Sonam’s main motive behind this auction is to provide education to poor children.

“Pernia wanted to associate this with charity and I wanted to do something for education. This will go towards Smile Foundation to educate kids,”she told.

Previously too, Sonam has been involved in charitable acts. However, this is the first time she is doing something like this.

“Pernia and me really believe in this. It is a great idea for people to go and check it out. We are waiting for the traffic for all the social networking sites to come there,” she told.
Shahrukh Khan & Katrina Kaif are the best reel life couple

Is cold war on between Aishwarya Rai and mom-in-law Jaya Bachchan?

The Bachchan family is not only a brand but also well known for being successful on both their professional and personal fronts.

The Bachchan family members – Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan, his vastly talented wife (probably the most talented member of the family) Jaya, their son Abhishek and his more popular and successful wife Aishwarya Rai – are generally seen together as a happy family in the public.

There has been no sound of conflict since Aishwarya Rai became Aishwarya Bachchan.

But the rosy days seem to have ended and there is supposedly trouble brewing in the Bachchan camp and it involves the women of the house! Not so surprising, eh?

According to our source, daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai has managed to rub her mother-in-law Jaya Bachchan the wrong way by gushing over the growth witnessed by the state of Guajarat in the past years under Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s government. Now you may wonder why that should bother Jaya Bachchan?

For the novices here, Jaya is a member of a political party in India, Samajwadi Party (SP) and Modi happens to be a member of a rival party – BJP. Gujarat lately went to polls and the two parties are fighting against each other.

It’s clear that if a political leader’s close family member is seen lauding the achievements of an opponent leader in public and endorsing his achievements, it will be an embarrassment for the leader – Jaya, in this case.

But, the other matter we do consider is that Amitabh Bachchan is a brand ambassador for the state of Gujarat.

The rumours were fuelled even further when the whole Bachchan household seemed to be present during a recent celebrity book launch – except Jaya herself.

Aishwarya looked stunning in a black anarkali dress and wowed all those gathered at the launch of the book – ‘My Father, Our Fraternity’ by Indian classical Sarod musician, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan.

Betrayal is a part and parcel of life: Jacqueline Fernandez!

For many “Betrayal Is Survival”, the tag line of Jacqueline Fernandez’s Race 2, may seem a lot related to the Hindi film industry – reflecting the cut-throat competition and survival mantra. But, the Sri Lankan beauty tells hard work and honesty can do wonders.

“It is a very competitive industry. They say that if you want to survive here, you have to be cut-throat. But I don’t see a need for that. Sometimes I feel that hard work works. If you want to sleep well at night it is better if you just be an honest person,” Jacqueline told in an interview. Personally, she feels it is better to forgive and forget than brood and hold a grudge.

She further added, “I think betrayal is a part and parcel of life and I think we all have experienced it. But I am someone who doesn’t believe in holding grudges. I am someone who forgives and forgets. I think it is important.”

Born to a Sri Lankan father and Malaysian mother, Jacqueline was raised in Bahrain, and at the age of 14 was hosting a fitness show. She moved to Australia for her college studies, and then returned to Sri Lanka, where she took up a reporting job.

The year 2006 turned to be a game-changer for her as she entered the Miss Sri Lanka beauty pageant, and won the crown. That set the stage for the Miss Universe contest at Los Angeles for her. She didn’t make it to the finals, but her visibility drew and she made her entry into Bollywood.

Though her debut movie Aladin opposite Riteish Deshmukh failed to click at the box office, the movie landed her roles in Housefull 2, Murder 2 and now Race 2.

“It is a little bit difficult when you have come from outside. I feel that the industry embraces people who are from the industry faster and with wider arms. But once you have proved yourself, it is easier for them to accept you,” indicating that creating a place for herself was not easy.

“I remember when Aladin didn’t do well, I felt a little bit shunned, because it is so difficult to get a second chance especially if you are not from the group. You put in twice the effort and start again,” tells Jacqueline.
The actress seems to be wary of making friends in the industry even though she has spent quite some time here.

“I think at the end of the day, these are all people you have to work with. Sometimes it is difficult because you don’t want to cross that line between professionalism and friendship. Getting along with co-stars is important, but when it comes to having real friends I don’t go looking for them in the film industry,” she told.
With two successful movies Murder 2 and Housefull 2 in her kitty, Jacqueline views the achievement as a huge responsibility.

“It (success) just gives you more responsibility. I guess it makes you work harder. It doesn’t change you as a person; it changes the surrounding and scenario and gives a lot more responsibility,” she told.

Directed by the duo Abbas-Mustan, Race 2 also stars Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone and Ameesha Patel. The film is slated for release on January 25th 2013.

I wish Katrina lives up to the expectations for ‘Dhoom’ tag: Esha Deol

Actress Esha Deol who starred in the first part of the Dhoom series has wished Katrina luck for her role in the forthcoming Dhoom 3 film.

Esha told, “I am sad that I am not a part of the whole franchise. But I wish Katrina lives up to the expectations that come with the ‘Dhoom‘ tag. I am sure she will because she is a brilliant actress.”
Katrina will be the new entrant into the Dhoom franchise along with megastar Aamir Khan. The film is slated to release in 2013.

The film, in which she was seen in a super stylish avatar, showed her dancing mettle with the film’s title track, Dhoom macha le which went on to become the biggest hit of the year. Even though Dhoom gave Esha a new lease of life, the actress couldn’t deliver much as an actress since then.

Asked about her plans to return to the silver screen, Esha, who was last seen in mother Hema Malini’s “Tell Me O Kkhuda”, told, “If any decent and respectful offer comes up then I will be a part of it. Acting is my first love and I am really looking forward to it.”

Esha Deol wedded businessman Bharat Takhtani in a traditional ceremony earlier this year. Lately, she headed to Tirupati with her husband. “We had gone to seek blessings from Balaji. I believe in him. We had also attended my cousin’s wedding there,” she told speaking about the holy place.

The actress tells life has not changed much after marriage and she has only become more responsible. “Life has become more responsible after marriage. I am happy to tie the knot with the person whom I loved. Love is the main key in a relationship, all other things are materialistic,” she told.

Dhoom 3 also stars Anil Kapoor, Ameesha Patel and Abhishek Bachchan.

Priyanka Chopra’s ‘different one’ avatar in 2013!

Priyanka Chopra never fails to impress with her choice of roles. The actress who is known for working on diverse roles tells that her forthcoming film on boxing champion, Mary Kom, will be a different movie next year.

“I do at least one film which is challenging for me every year. Mary Kom is that film for next year. If you meet her in person, you will see she is so sweet….can’t imagine her to be a boxer,” Priyanka Chopra told.
The actress is training hard to fit into the shoes of the Olympic medalist and hopes she can play the role well. “There is a lot of training going on for it. I hope I can pull it off,” she told.

The actress who has done non-conventional roles that many of her counterparts may think twice about tells “I have done films for so long and my fans have always supported me. It is easy for me to do conventional movies, but then I want to try something different.”

No wonder we get to see Priyanka playing roles like the ones in 7 Khoon Maaf, Fashion and the latest Barfi.
Next year will be a treat for her fans as she will be appearing in four different movies – A remake of Zanjeer, the film on Mary Kom, Gunday and Krissh 3.

With her debut single, ‘In My City’ getting mostly positive reviews from fans, Priyanka admits that her strong Bollywood career has supported this success.

Film Gunday’s First look has revealed!

The first look of the much expected Ranveer Singh – Arjun Kapoor starrer, Gunday is finally out.

The film’s poster shows the two lead actors dressed as two small time thieves looking across the Howrah Bridge towards the sunrise. The ambitious project, set in Kolkata (then Calcutta), is a period movie, that dwells on the mafia issue faced by the city in the 70s. The story is about how Bikram and Bala, two inseparable friends become the biggest and the most influential mafia men. With a tagline – ‘Humaare Tevar Alag Hain’, the teaser promises something new. Priyanka Chopra and Irrfan Khan are also part of this much expected movie.

Directed by Ali Abbas Zaffar, whose earlier directorial venture, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan was successful, and being produced by Aditya Chopra the movie is set to be one of the biggest releases in the coming year.
The movie which is scheduled for a late 2013 release started its first shooting schedule in Mumbai this week.

In the meantime, Arjun Kapoor who is riding high on his successful debut, Ishaqzadee, which released previously this year, revealed that Gunday was one of his most thrilling projects in hand. His other projects include Aurangazeb and 2 States.

Film Kai Po Che trailer to hit the screens with Dabangg2!

The trailer of Abhishek Kapoor’s Kai Po Che! is scheduled to be released with Salman Khan’s Dabangg 2, which hits the screens on December 21st.

Shikha Kapur, executive director, marketing, Studios, Disney UTV, confirmed the news and told, “Yes, it is true that Kai Po Che trailer is being attached with Dabangg 2.”

The film is based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel “The 3 Mistakes of My Life”. Set in Gujarat, the film is about three friends and features Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh and Rajkumar Yadav playing their roles.

The title has been derived from a common Gujarati phrase used during Uttarayan. It has been entirely shot in the heartland of Gujarat.

According to a spokesperson from the film’s production banner, UTV, the film’s trailer was given a U/A certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification and went through with zero cuts.

In the meantime, the makers of Kai Po Che! have decided to begin the promotional activity of the film by organizing a gala kite-flying event in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Since the movie is based and shot in the city too, this will be a perfect way to promote the film.

The release of the movie is slated on 22nd February 2013.

Film Inkaar Theatrical Trailer!

The first theatrical trailer of director Sudhir Mishra’s movie, titled Inkaar is out. The movie is based on sexual harassment at the work place and stars the very sot and sizzling Bollywood jodi, Arjun Rampal and Chitrangada Singh.

It is a very bold film, with loads of bold scenes.

A source tells, “Played as a courtroom drama, the content of INKAAR is bold and controversial. The theatrical trailer of the film has gone through four revisions as the team feels that the content is too steamy. They want the revisions to be honest so that the film doesn’t look cheap.” The source further adds, ”This is an intelligent film and therefore the team wants the target audience to be communicated correctly.”

Inkaar faced issues with its promos and teasers. Hence the makers decided to cut a few dialogues from the main trailer and release them online instead.

Arjun Rampal had to do a lot of homework for his character in the movie. It is head that the actor was forced to flirt with his co-star Chitrangada Singh, so that he was better prepared for the role.
An insider reveals, “Sudhir asked Arjun to spontaneously flirt with her to develop a comfort level.”

“The two were made to hang out and drive around town when they were not shooting. Arjun was even directed to take Chitrangada out on a few dates in Mumbai, and then later Bangkok, where the crew also shot for some time,” further adds the source.

The Viacom 18 movie is set to hit theatres on January 18 next year.

Big B puzzled over late Pandit Ravi Shankar’s phone call!

Just a week before the music maestro, Pandit Ravi Shankar’s death, Amitabh Bachchan received the first ever and of course the last phone call from him. Big B was left bewildered after the call.

Mentioning the happening on his blog, He posted, “A strange feeling crawls within me. Just last week his wife Sukanyaji had sent a message to me on my mobile, while I transited from Marrakech, Morocco to Florence in Italy. It was the first time ever that I had received a message from her.”

“She had requested a time when she could call back as Ravi Shankarji had wanted to talk to me. He was keeping unwell she had said and was to undergo a surgery on Thursday.

“Due to the time difference, I was unable to connect with her immediately and it was only the next day when I called back that she spoke most endearingly and put me on to the great maestro! I was speaking to Pandit Ravi Shankar for the very first time ever on the phone,” he tweeted.

The 70-year-actor tells, there was a lot of warmth in Ravi Shankar’s voice, while he spoke to Amitabh Bachchan. The late music maestro also appreciated Big B’s work.

“We knew each other, there were strong and long family relationships, a few casual meetings, but nothing more. Why was he wanting to speak to me now? I was puzzled. But he came on the line, spoke with great warmth, on seeing me on the television often, of my films and my fans in the house, informed me that he was going in for a surgery – I had wished him well and after the phone call was over, sat for long, wondering how what had transpired had actually happened,” he added.

Amitabh Bachchan added, “An entire life, an era, a most incredible period in the history of classical music in India has come to an end”.

Pandit Ravi Shankar, aged 92, passed away on Tuesday in the US.

2012 has been a rocking year for the sexy and versatile Priyanka Chopra.

The actress also won applauds for her newly released international single — ‘In my city’. Freshly, Priyanka was crowned the ‘Worlds Sexiest Asian Woman’.

Now, the most recent we hear is that the actress has been nominated for the World Music Awards (WMA) 2013. Yet another feather added to her cap.

The ceremony is an international award show for world music artistes, which is held in Los Angeles, and is the first music awards of the year.

The glamorous role also requires acting: Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone is amongst the few multitalented actresses in the industry. The actress has done glamorous as well as non-glamorous roles and she tells that it saddens her when people think that glamorous roles don’t require hard work or much of an effort.
Deepika Padukone told in an interview, “I think the role is more important. It is a misconception that a glamorous role doesn’t require acting talent. It’s a bit strange, because I think at the end of the day, any kind of film — whether it is glamorous or ‘de-glam’ (non-glamorous) – requires acting. Acting is acting.”

“For example, people think I gave a brilliant performance as Veronica in ‘Cocktail’, but it was also a glamorous role. For me, it is about the role and the film, not glamour,” she further added.

The stunning actress made her debut opposite SRK in 2007 in Om Shanti Om, after which there has been no looking back for her.

For Deepika Padukone, it is important that not only her role is appreciated but the film also does well at the box office.

She told, “When you set out to do a film, one hopes that your performance is appreciated and the film also goes on to do well. Fortunately with me, in ‘Cocktail’, I got both. The film did well and the performance was appreciated. I hope this happens in all my films.”

Asked if she fears being over-exposed, Deepika told, “I think as long as you are doing good work, that is the most important thing. I don’t think that it can result in over-exposure of any form. Also I am someone who has always believed in quality versus quantity.”

The former model also endorses several brands and has just been made the face of a new range of Garnier products alongside actress Priyanka Chopra.

“Today I could have easily been doing 15-20 brands at a time, but I chose not to do that. I chose to endorse the best in the market,” she further added.

With so many commitments, and endorsements does she get time for herself?

“It’s about the kind of lifestyle you lead. I can say that I have been the busiest in my career because I am juggling three films at a time. But I think I know how to conserve my energy, I know where to conserve it and spend it. I think things like my diet, workout, exercise, the water I drink and products I use add to me looking and feeling better,” she told.

Chitrangada Singh’s intense role of sexually harassed woman!

Chitrangada Singh was last seen in Desi Boyz, but the long wait for the actress is finally over. The hot actress is at last looking to an exciting 2013. Her forthcoming movie Inkaar will showcase intense side of hers where she would be locking horns with Arjun Rampal.

“Yes, this has turned out to be a really intense film for her since it deals with sexual harassment at workplace,” says a close associate of the actress, “If Chitrangada Singh’s characterisation itself is quite tough to begin with, what makes it further challenging is the fact that Sudhir Mishra doesn’t settle for anything less than excellent. It is anyways so tough to be working with him since he is quite a taskmaster. Add to that a subject like this and you know he would be driving you really hard. Of course when you see the end results, they turn out to be immensely satisfying.”

While earlier there were rumors around the film being titled POWER PLAY, the final title is INKAAR and it promises to bring sexual harassment out of the closet and that too in a mainstream movie.

A source told, “The film features Arjun Rampal as a corporate bigwig who mentors a newbie (Chitrangada), only to sexually harass her. Thoroughly disgusted by this behavior, she takes matters to the higher authorities and charges him in the case of harassment.”

However, looking at the poster we think that Chitrangada too is having some fun with Rampal. We’ll have to wait and watch as to what happens when the movie releases on 18th January.

Madhuri Dixit told, “Being number one or number two never bothered me. I did not believe in all that. I had this in mind that whenever I go on the sets, I have to give my best. Whenever I gave a good shot that was a special moment for me.”

“I never got into the politics of the industry. I was always kept away from it and enjoyed being part of it,” further added Madhuri.

Madhuri Dixit became a name to reckon with after her performance in super hits like “Tezaab”, “Ram Lakhan”, “Tridev”, “Dil”, “Saajan”, “Khalnayak”, “Hum Aapke Hain Koun”, “Dil To Pagal Hai” and “Devdas”.

With some many good movies and commendable performances to her credit, the 45-year-old still looks the same and has always been very down to earth.

MAshuri told, “My family, their values and education have kept me grounded. I am not a frog in the well. There is a life outside the industry and I have always been very curious about it. I love meeting people and talking to them. For me it is not about ‘I, me and myself’.”

Now she will be seen back on the screen in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Dedh Ishqiya and Anubhav Sinha’s Gulab Gang.

Talking about the kind of movies being made these days, Madhuri told, “Some years back there was a demarcation of art films and commercial cinema but now it is not like that. Now the lines are quite blurred. Realistic films are made now and there are no over the top characters. Also the audiences have matured.”

According to sources, the actual reason behind the dinner treat is that, Deepika is grateful to Imtiaz for suggesting her role of the sexy Veronica over the meek Meera. Veronica’s role seemed more challenging and won her accolades from critics and fans.

Deepika tells, “I knew that the film would be liked, but didn’t think that my character would be loved so much. I owe it to Imtiaz, as it was he who coaxed me to choose Veronica when I had the choice of both the characters. Had it not been for Imtiaz I would have chosen to play Meera.”

Deepy’s bikini act in the film also won her extra brownie points.

And now, as an act of gratitude, Deepika has decided to take the filmmaker out to dinner.

A source says, “They share a special bond, ever since they worked together on Love Aaj Kal. Deepika always looks for career advice from him and has great respect for him. Now Deepika is really keen to take him for dinner, but both of them are very busy with their respective projects at present. So the wait is on for both.”

I wish there are many more such opportunities for such causes.”
