Soha Ali Khan will teach "What Not To Wear"!

Soha Ali Khan, Aki Narula

Soha Ali Khan, Aki Narula
Actress Soha Ali Khan finds all kinds of reality shows on the small screen very interesting and tells it is particularly entertaining to watch people be themselves in front of the camera.
"I've seen a lot of reality shows and even if any show is a low quality show, there is something very addictive about watching someone being themselves on screen and you end up watching it for sometime. So, there is a human interest in it (reality shows)," Soha said.
The 33-year-old has turned host for TLC's fashion-based show "What Not To Wear" in which she will share the platform with stylist Aki Narula. Her first stint on TV was as the anchor of Star Plus' "Godrej Khelo Jeeto Jiyo" in 2010.
"What Not To Wear" is a global format, already popular in the US and Britain.
It will be a 13-part series which will focus at changing the wardrobe of 13 women across the country, telling them the do's and don'ts of their personal fashion statement.
Asked about her personal style statement, Soha told, "I think its beyond definition. It's been quite fluid. I wear what I feel like wearing but in the recent past it is more changed and I have made a recent effort and thought about what I want to wear in a particular function."
Soha, who was here for the show's launch Thursday, tells she has to especially take care of her dresses as she is a celebrity.
"Now I am in the limelight and people take pictures of what I wear and analyse it in great detail. So you (I) don't have much option, but to become fashion conscious. Even though by nature I am not fashion conscious, I had to become one," she further added.
Sister of actor Saif Ali Khan and daughter of veteran actress Sharmila Tagore, Soha tells she would never dare to give her brother styling tips or defy her mother's advice.
"I would never do that (tell Saif what not to wear). He already comes with so many ideas and he is really glued into style and specific details about collars and buttons.
"And I have no choice but to take tips from her (Sharmila Tagore). I go through her choice and pick and choose what is digestible to me. Things that I don't agree with, I just don't do it," she told.
"What Not To Wear" goes on air Sep 3.
On the movie front, Soha will soon be seen in "Sahib Biwi And Gangster 2" and "Chaar Phutiya Chokhre".

Film Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi Review

"Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi";
Star cast: Boman Irani, Farah Khan; Directed by: Bela Bhansali Sehgal;

In the latest Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi, Boman Irani and Farah Khan absolutely make a sweet filmi jodi.
Directed by veteran editor Bela Bhansali Sehgal, the movie is your usual filmy love story, which is predictable from the very beginning. But what sets it apart from the rest of the stories is the film’s lead pair and some light-hearted moments which have been beautifully captured.
The story is of a 45 year old Parsi ‘boy’, Farhad (Boman Irani), who is single and very keen to mingle. Farhad lives with his ‘very loving’ mother (Daisy Irani) and grandmother (actress Shammi, after ages!). Society and family pressure make Farhad visit several prospective brides’ homes only to be rejected from every family because of his profession. The honest and shy Farhad works as a salesman at a lingerie shop in Mumbai. One fine day, Shirin (Farah Khan) enters his shop and his life changes for ever. Farhad falls in love with the confident, bindaas, quirky 40-year-old Shirin, and it is true love for the two. But Farhad, who is a mumma’s boy, has to first convince his mother, who considers Shirin as her arch rival.
While seeing Bela Sehgal's sweet tender tale of Shrin and Farhad - past the age of wedding, determined to find love and companionship in each other's boring company, one immediately thought of Basu Chatterjee's "Khatta Meetha" and Vijaya Mehta's "Pestonjee". It was a movie about a widow and a widower from the Parsi community overcoming their children's opposition for an autumnal wedding.
Mehta's "Pestonjee" was extraordinarily accurate in portraying the benign quirks of the Parsi community. So is Sehgal. Though not a Parsi herself, she plunges into the centre of the dwindling community's eccentricities without trying to give the characters any kind of a novel existence beyond what they are stereotypically known for.
The love story of Shirin (Farah Khan) and Farhad (Boman Irani) holds no surprises. They meet, they smirk, they walk hand-in-hand, and he mistakes her invitation for coffee in her home for suggestion for sex. While she makes him coffee, he waits for her undressed. And you know the rest.
The portrayal of Farhad's mother (Daisy Irani) and grandmother (Shammi) reveals the film's writer Sanjay Leela Bhansali's penchant for loud extroverted singing, dancing, chortling ageing woman characters, e.g Helen in Bhansali's "Khamoshi: The Musical" and Kirron Kher in "Devdas".
The movie makes terrific use of silent moments that are becoming progressively rare in our cinema. Farah Khan is especially reserved, a mysterious smile hovering in her eyes constantly as though she knows that life, and life in the movies, is a secret joke. In her scenes with her comatose screen-dad, Farah's eyes melt with affection. She handles the emotional moments better than the comic.
Boman seems to be reined-in. It's like a new singer, say Shailendra Singh when he had to sing duets with Lata Mangeshkar in Raj Kapoor's "Bobby". She had to hold back. Boman does that quite well to let his debutante co-star get comfortable with the camera.
Sehgal has cast true-blue Parsi actors in all the roles, big and small. In fact, I could hardly spot any non-Parsi in the cast!
The comic vein tends to get unwieldy at times, as if the attempt to be funny has taken a toll on the characters' sense of self-identity. We get a Parsi wacko (Kurush Deboo) who runs amok with a traditional gun threatening to kill anybody who comes in his way. He doesn't make much sense in the scheme of the plot. But then, what makes sense in life other than the senselessness that we see all around us?
Sehgal doesn't try to make sense of the chaos. She flows with the chaos seeking laughter in the eccentricity. Hence when an old Parsi gentleman constantly writes love notes to Indira Gandhi, you know he has lost it. And you smile, because eccentricity is a pre-condition in a rom-com about two over-the-hill Parsis, one of whom sells lingerie and meets the woman of his dreams when she comes to buy a brassiere.
Luckily, the film goes beyond innerwear and seeks a place in one's heart. The director emerges with some truly cheering moments between Boman and Farah.
The debutante director has carved an appealing relationship between the unlikely pair. The romance is embroidered with charming little incidents that add beautifully to the pacy perky spoof of Parsi proceedings. And if Boman is boldly in character as a 45-year old who surprises himself by finding love, Farah is no less confident.
More notably, it is an inspiring to see a simple, nice romantic-comedy without any slapstick which is so common in today’s time. The film makes you smile and laugh with each of its characters and their crazy, confusing ways.
On the whole, it is worthy to watch once.

Kareena Kapoor graces the Stardust – September 2012

Katrina hopes for 100 crore films hat-trick with YRF?

It is obvious that Katrina Kaif’s lucky charm has rubbed upon Yash Raj Films as well. Yash Raj’s biggest grosser till date have been Dhoom 2 and Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi, astonishingly Yash Raj have never had a film which has crossed the 100 crore mark. But now with ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ on it’s way to become the highest grosser, there’s no looking back for YRF.
“Really, I didn’t even know that Yash Raj didn’t have a 100 crore film in their kitty. As I said, things like these may matter to those who have put in their money but for me what is most heartening is that Ek Tha Tiger is doing so well till date,” told Katrina.
Their next two movies, the Untitled Yash Raj flick and Dhoom3 starring Sharukh and Aamir respectively, certainly looks like those movies will also cross the 100 crore mark making it a hat-trick for Katrina as she is a part of both the movies.
Now that Ek Tha Tiger has turned out to be yet another huge success for her, it is also continuing a winning streak that Katrina has maintained over the years. One wonders whether she ever gets astonished any more when her films score well commercially.
She answered sincerely, “See, the nerves are always there. The tension doesn’t go away anywhere. At the end of the day every film has a different story to tell and takes its own journey. You never know where a film of yours would be eventually headed for. It is not like a building architecture where based on a blue print you know in advance how it would look like. There are so many personal tastes involved that no formula can guarantee you a success.”

Ranveer fumes over telling Ek Tha Tiger is boring on fake twitter by his name!

It was just reported yesterday that Ranveer Singh Trashed ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ telling it’s a boring movie. Well, it now seems that Ranveer did not post anything about the Salman Khan starrer, but it was an impostor who did the work and left Ranveer fuming.
A representative of Ranveer told, “The information on a tweet being attributed to Ranveer Singh in some sections of the media about his comments on Ek Tha Tiger is completely incorrect and baseless. The tweet being referred to is of an impersonator and not of Ranveer. While Ranveer is on twitter and his twitter handle is @RanveerOfficial, he has never tweeted till date. His intention of being on twitter is to be able to interact with his friends and read what they are tweeting.”
It’s a good thing the truth is out. If not, the comment would have absolutely angered Salman Bhai.

One Dirty Picture and a Heroine can’t change the tide in male dominated industry: Kareena Kapoor

Kareena Kapoor is back promoting her movie ‘Heroine’ after a long vacation with beau Saif Ali Khan first in London and then Paris.
Being the main attraction of the movie, Kareena tells that critical acclamation is far more important than bollywood success. But takes a firm stance that that the heroine is far from being the hero of a movie.
She told, “It’s a male dominated industry. One Dirty Picture and a Heroine can’t change the tide. It’s not the actor alone but even the director needs to change his mindset.”
When asked about her wedding, Kareena laughed and replied with a lot of sarcasm.
“It’s a Rajya Sabha debate. Everything I do, becomes a national issue, I could well be married you know. How would that make a difference? I could have been married three years ago and still done a Heroine. But yes you will know when I do,” Kareena told.
It was also reported that Kareena and Ranbir will be seen together soon sharing screen space, Kareena confirmed the news confirming, “Yes it’s in the pipeline.”
Heroine will release on her 32nd birthday, and giving her close competition will be her cousin, Ranbir whose film ‘Barfi’ will release a week earlier.

Heroine is very close to my heart: Kareena Kapoor

Did you know the movie Heroine was firstly offered to Kareena Kapoor, even before Aishwarya Rai had signed it? Well, the same movie passed on from Kareena to Aishwarya and then back to Kareena, hence making it very close to the actress’s heart. Well, it’s a destiny!
Kareena told, “Being a part of ‘Heroine’ was my destiny. The first time I couldn’t do it because I didn’t have dates and second time I was happy that the film came back to me. I had no second thoughts about it and agreed to do it.” I had a wonderful experience working on this film and it is very close to my heart. Ever since I watched ‘Chandni Bar’, I wanted to work with Madhur (Bhandarkar).”
Also featuring Arjun Rampal and Randeep Hooda, Heroine is slated for a September 21 release.

Anushka Sharma is a wildlife channel employee… Oh!

SRK and Anushka

SRK and Anushka
Even the minutest tidbit about Yash Chopra’s untitled is bound to bring excitement among the audience, the newest being the name and trailer of the film to be revealed on Yash Chopra’s birthday, 27 September.
We also have some news about Anushka Sharma’s character in the movie… The actress reportedly plays a free-spirited, bubbly, chatter box, who works for a wildlife channel… Oh! So now we know why that bike and all…
Anushka is an outstanding actress, no doubt about that. However, we would like to see her get out off her comfort zone and do something different, rather than the same old chirpy roles. Though it is too early to comment anything about the film or her role, we only hope there is some transition in her character.
In the meantime, we are all eagerly waiting for 27 September.

Nargis Fakhri wants her talk show based on the lines of Oprah Winfrey!

Aamir Khan who made his debut on television with his talk show Satyamev Jayate, which received an excellent response from all over the place, seems to have inspired Nargis Fakhri, because now she too wants start her own talk show.
Nargis confirmed the news telling, “I want to help people and be of some service through my talk show.”
She added, “I want to have a talk show based on the lines of Oprah Winfrey.”
Now, we can’t help but wonder if this idea is the result of being inspired by Aamir Khan’s show or because poor Nargis doesn’t have any film projects on her hand as of now.

Sohail Khan comes forward for Salman and David Dhawan patch-up!

Sohail Khan, Salman Khan, David Dhawan
Salman Khan and comedy director David Dhawan, who have worked together previously in Partner, haven’t been on talking terms as a result of a fallout between the two during the release of the movie.
Now that David is making the sequel pf Partner, and needs Salman Khan to act in the film, he wants to end the fight and let bygones be bygones. And it was also reported that the director will approach Salman’s younger brother Sohail and ask him to convince Salman to work in the movie and to forget the past. A source told, “Work on the sequel has already begun but as Salman has refused to work with Dhawan, the latter will take Sohail’s help to broker peace between the two.”
Partner was a desi remake of the English movie Hitch; it was a great success at the box office.

Aamir flies down to Brazil for meeting with fans during old film Fanaa release!

There is a at last some good news for Kunal Kohli! The memories of his last release Teri Meri Kahani which was a failure at the box office can finally be forgotten as his 2006 hit release Fanaa starring Aamir Khan and Kajol will see a commercial release in Brazil, 6 years after its release in India.
Kunal who is quite shocked with the amazing response he’s getting from an unpredicted corner of the world told, “It is news to me and honestly quite fascinating as well. It is quite humbling to see a film of mine travelling internationally and that too after six years. More than anything else, this is a good piece of news for Indian cinema. I hope the film makes an impact there and opens further doors for the industry.”
What is surprising the fact that the film is neither seeing a festival release nor is it participating as a part of any delegation? It’s getting a mainstream commercial release in cities like Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Bahia, Santa Catarina, Rio Grande do Sul, Pernambuco and Maranhao Federal District.
Aamir who is presently in Chicago shooting for Dhoom3 with Katrina Kaif was shocked when he heard the news. He might also fly down to Brazil to give his fans a surprise visit!

Anushka Sharma avoids Ranveer Singh now!

Anushka Sharma, Ranveer Singh

Bollywood sexy lass Anushka Sharma looks best on screen with her ‘good friend’ Ranveer Singh, but these days Anushka is rejecting any movie which has Ranveer in the lead, In fact she isn’t even considering movies with Ranveer in them. And why is she doing so? A source tells, “Since a lot is written about their personal friendship, Anushka wants to maintain a distance from Ranveer professionally to shun further speculation.”

That’s not it, from what we’ve heard Anushka hasn’t turned down one movie, but three movies will Ranveer in the lead. Whichever project Ranveer proposes Anushka rejects. And the Lootera actor doesn’t like the way his pal is behaving, leading to a lot of arguments between the two actors.

All this makes us wonder why Anushka should avoid working with Ranveer if they are just ‘good friends’! Why worry about wagging tongues and mysterious smoke? ‘Coz according to them there’s no fire between them, remember?

A source revealed a leading daily, “Parineeti had donned a rather taut coral dress which seemed to be too snug for her frame. But as soon as she realized (which was within 10 minutes of her dazzling entry), that her dress had developed a runaway tear near the zip, she did what any sensible girl would have done – run for cover before it got any worse.”

However, this is not the first time that the actress faced a wardrobe malfunction. Previously too, she wore a see through dress exposing her inners.

Well, Parineeti, you sincerely need to get rid of some kilos.

If Heroine goes to Dubai; Gets a Rate Card in reward: Kareena Kapoor

The Ministry of Events Dubai, has invited Kareena Kapoor to plug her movie Heroine on September 3, thus putting all rumors to rest about Kareena’s “Dubai dialogue” hurting the locals out there.

In the first trailer of Heroine, irked with the audiences, Kareena says the media,

“You people should be writing scripts. If a heroine buys a car, it’s given to her by a businessman, if she goes to LA, she’s getting plastic surgery done and, God forbid, if she goes to Dubai, you people make her a rate card.”

Contrary to reports, Kareena’s UAE fans are more than glad to have her promote the movie in their city.

Her schedule goes this way… At 8pm, Kareena will meet and greet her fans at the Lamcy Plaza. She will travel on a Dhow, where she will interact with international media.

I am emotionally drained, exhausted: Bipasha Basu

Bipasha Basu

Bipasha confesses that ‘Raaz3' has been the most challenging role she has ever taken up. She feels she has given her best shot and doubts if she can ever deliver a performance like this again.

She told, “For me, in my filmography of work, this is the most challenging role I have done and I don’t think I can get better than this.”

“Everyday was a struggle, I was emotionally drained, exhausted. I wanted to finish it soon because it was really disturbing me,” Bipasha added.

The movies concept is based on black magic and it’s going to hit theaters on the 7th of September.

She further talks about how Relaxed Emraan Hashmi was while every one else was under a lot of pressure because of different reasons.

“Everyone was very lost on the sets. Vikram (Bhatt) was under a lot of pressure because he had to make a film better that ‘Raaz’. I had taken the challenge of playing Shanaya, which is the darkest character that any Hindi actress has ever played on screen.”

“So everyone was a little lost… Esha (Gupta) was just saying that she was troubled because she doesn’t even know what she wants to do in life. But amongst all us troubled people there was Emraan Hashmi who was sitting relaxed and the moment they said the shot is ready, he’ll get up,” told the charming Bipasha.

The 33 year old also loves the way Emraan goes about with his job.

“You will think that he is not involved but then when he comes and you say ‘Action’, he just pounces on the roll! He is that kind of a fiery actor,” she added.

Sanjay Dutt replaces Arjun Rampal for Sher Khan Role in Zanjeer remake!

Sanjay Dutt, Arjun Rampal

Sanjay Dutt is all set to play Pran’s role of Sher Khan in Apoorva Lakhia’s Zanjeer remake. He will be replacing Arjun Rampal.

Having opted out of the project, Arjun Rampal to a popular magazine, “Yes unfortunately I am opting out of Zanjeer. The dates were clashing with Nikhil Advani’s film. It was getting too cut-to-cut for me. The only window I had this year for Zanjeer was in July. But that got pushed ahead. Now it would be unfair of me to ask them to wait until next year for my dates. Sher Khan is an iconic character. Any actor would be happy to play him.”

Now that the role has been bagged by Sanjay Dutt, the actor has undergone a total physical makeover. He has shed 15 kgs of weight, facial skin looks tightened, undereye bags vanished, and he looks much younger.

A source reveals, “This Zanjeer needs two well-built guys. The confrontation between Vijay and Sher Khan in the original Zanjeer was aggressive and violent but the brawn quotient was missing. Pran saab was clearly not expected to fight bare-backed and Bachchan Saab never took off his shirt. This time Ramcharan Teja and his on-screen Sher Khan slug it out bare-torsoed. That’s why Arjun Rampal with his lithe build was selected. Sanjay Dutt has lost so much weight now. He can very comfortably carry off the hand-to-hand shirtless combat with Ram Charan. It would be the highpoint of the movie.”

Zanjeer’s remake has Ram Charan and Priyanka Chopra in the lead roles. The movie is made in Hindi and Telugu concurrently.

Karishma wants Kareena’s wedding without delay!

Karishma Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor

If Kareena’s fans can’t wait for Kareena to get married, her sister Karishma is enthusiastically waiting too, and just can’t control her excitement of looking at Kareena tying the Knot with Saif.

When asked about Kareena and Saif’s marriage dates, Karishma told, “I feel you should ask this to Kareena. She will get busy with the promotions of ‘Heroine’ soon, so you all can catch hold of her.”

She added, “All I can say is, of course, I am excited and it will be wonderful. Even I can’t wait for Kareena’s wedding any more.”

Being one of the most successful actress in the 90's, Karishma has given several super hits like ‘Coolie No.1', ‘Raja Hindustani’, ‘Dil To Paagal Hai’ and ‘Hero No.1' just to name a few. She took a long break in the industry and made an appearance after a few years in Mahesh Bhatt’s ‘Dangerou Ishq’ which didn’t fare well at the box office.
When asked about her next movie, she told, “Now I am reading scripts and I am going to take a little bit of break. Hopefully, next year I will do a movie but it all depends… I never really plan anything…”

I sincerely apologize for my tweet on SRK’s film Ra.One, says Shirish Kunder

Sanjay Dutt, Shahrukh Khan, Shirish Kunder

Editor-turned-director, Shirish Kunder posted an apology to Shahrukh Khan, for having taken a potshot at actor Shah Rukh Khan’s mega-budget movie, RA.One, last year. Just to remember, Shirish had posted, “I just heard a 150 Cr firework fizzle”.

Reading this post, filmmaker Farah Khan, wife of Shirish Kunder was quoted as telling, “I’m proud of my husband. It takes a big heart to apologize.”

Early January this year, both Kunder and SRK got into a dirty fight at actor Sanjay Dutt’s party.

Hollywood actor Van Damme floors by Aishwarya Rai’s looks and acting!

Hollywood actor Van Damme and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Van Damme, also known as ‘Muscles from Brussels’, is keen on working with Bollywood beauty Aishwarya Rai.

The Expendables 2 star wishes to make a Bollywood movie, with him as hero and Ashwarya as his heroin. The actor was floored by Ashwarya’s looks and acting in Devdas.

In a fresh interview with a popular magazine, when asked whom he would like to pair up with in Bollywood, he said, “It has to be Aishwarya (Rai). She is absolutely gorgeous.”

Well, it looks like Van Damme’s wish might not come true anytime soon as Aishwarya is busy with her little kid, Aaradhya and has taken a break from film.

Bipasha Basu experiences that actor’s live a very sad life!

Bipasha Basu has been in the film industry since a very long time, and she experiences that actor’s live a very sad life. She even mentions that after a point superstar fade away and are only remembered again once they are dead.

“An actor’s life is very sad. The biggest of superstars in our country fade away after some time and are remembered only when they die. But what to do? It is very vulnerable, very sad, but that is the way it is. Nothing is permanent in their life,” Bipasha told.

She added, “Once you achieve success, you just want to work, you don’t want to be forgotten. It is an emotion that every actor worldwide, male or female, goes through.”

Bipasha’s upcoming movie Raaz3 is a sequel to the hit film Raaz: The mystery continues. The movie also stars Emraan Hashmi and Esha Gupta.

She feels that people want to know all about an actor’s life and that’s the reason why movies like ‘The dirty Picture’, ‘Heroine’ and ‘Raaz3 are made.

“It is an interesting profession to make a film on – either the actor’s life or an actress’. In today’s time everybody wants to be an actor. It is a fascinating profession and people want to know about behind the scenes. And that is the reason there have been so many movies made on the same topic,” told the 33 year old who plays the role of an actress whose career is on the downfall in Raaz3.

So are these films based one hundred percent on reality? She tell us, “These are all fictional and little drawn from reality. Such films are basically different types of storytelling of different directors, which make for very interesting stories.”

She also mentions, people and media shouldn’t forget the fact that actors are human too, and need some private space.

“Poeple are always interested to know what you are doing in your personal space. It makes great news for people to discuss over a meal. But they forget we are also humans, who have a personal life, struggles and we too go through good and bad times.”

“It is quite harsh at times to expect an actor to be okay with whatever is written about him. Actors and not super humans, they are normal people,” told the actress, who has also worked in Tamil, Telugu and Bengali language films.

Bipasha’s future projects include English movie ‘Singularity and Suparn Verma’s ‘Aatma’.

Salman’s recent box office success has been overwhelming! And ever since ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ smashed box office records, producers are waiting in queue to sign a movie with him.

If reports are true, Ramesh Taurani has offered Salman A whopping sum of 100 crores to work in his movie. If the deal goes through, Salman will be the highest paid actor in bollywood.

A source told, “Since Ek Tha Tiger has opened to whopping numbers, a lot of filmmakers have been approaching Salman for movies. However, Taurani, who has worked with Salman before, is very keen to make a film with the actor.”

Salman’s last 3 movies have done business of over 150 crores, no wonder Taurani is willing to shell out such a huge amount of money to sign the actor.

Taurani confirmed the news of signing Salman but denied the figure. He was quoted saying that Salman has signed a film with him, which will go on floors in 2013.

Well, Salman is having great times as of now.
