Ranbir’s “old man” look is for his upcoming movie Barfi!

Basu tells he made some frantic calls, and was told that it was an ad. “I caught the complete ad later and was taken aback with what I saw. Ranbir’s getup in the TV ad is almost identical to that of his old-age look in Barfi!. I was disappointed.”
A source close to the movie added, “Anurag was very angry. He and his producer UTV had taken great pains to keep the look under wraps. But with the ad, the look is out and so is the big surprise.”
When asked if he has had a word with Ranbir about the issue, Anurag told, “Yes I have. But I have also shot several TV?commercials with Ranbir in the past and I know that he sticks to the brief that he is given, without asking any questions. I spoke to him a couple of days back and he simply smiled. When Ranbir smiles usko sab maf hai.”
Basu does not deny being disappointed. But he is in an exceptionally forgiving mood. “What can I say and what can I do? We had really taken a lot of pain to guard his look and keep it under wraps. But I guess it had to happen this way. So it’s fine now.”

Irrfan told, “Even I have been stopped many-a-times at airports at immigration.”

“Whenever you cross immigration, you give your passport and they would ask you the purpose of your visit. And then they would suddenly check something on their computer and their perception changes,” Irrfan said journalists, at the launch of the DVD of “Paan Singh Tomar”.
“They take away your phone and do not allow you to call anyone. They call the police and take you in and you can’t question them. This is system’s ignorance…Their system is not foolproof. When all verifications are properly done, then they leave you,” he further added.

Aamir’s show ‘Satyamev Jayate’ is for the people of India!

If you are wondering what is Aamir Khan’s show Satyamev Jayate all about, let us tell you, it’s something to do with the people of India. It is for the people of our country, by the people and belongs to the people of our nation, India. And that’s the reason Aamir’s show has been titled Satyamev Jayate.
Though the promo of the show is out, yet, the audiences are not very clear about the content and nature of the show. We hear that Aamir Khan Productions is most likely to be a chat show, involving people from different walks of the life. Aamir has been working on the concept for the last three years.

Apex court gives breathing space to Madhur Bhandarkar in rape case!

Director Madhur Bhandarkar

Victim Preeti Jain
The Supreme Court Monday stayed criminal proceedings against filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar in a rape charge leveled against him by actress Priti Jain.
While staying the proceedings, an apex court bench of Justice H.L. Dattu and Justice C. K. Prasad issued notice to the Maharashtra government and Jain on Bhandarkar's plea seeking that the case against him be abolished.
Bhandarkar had challenged the Bombay High Court order asking him to face trial in the alleged rape case.
In July 2004, Jain had lodged a complaint alleging that Bhandarkar had raped her several times between 1999 and 2004 under the pretext of marrying her and casting her as actress in his movies.
Even though the Mumbai police in its report had told that the allegations against Bhandarkar were 'maliciously false', the Mumbai metropolitan court in September last year did not accept it and held that there was substance in Jain's complaint, and issued process against Bhandarkar, directing him to face the trial.
The magistrate's court in November last year had granted anticipatory bail to the Bollywood filmmaker.
Bhandarkar had challenged the lower court's order before the high court which too had rejected his plea.
