Rani Mukherjee wants Dictaphone for ‘Aiyya’ promotion!

Rani Mukherjee usually prefers to stay away fro the media but now she doesn’t have any choice now but to do rounds of television shows and give interviews for her forthcoming movie ‘Aiyya’.
And since everybody knows about her relationship with Aditya Chopra, the media tried asking her a few questions on the status of her relationship with Aditya. But Rani feels there is no need to talk about their relationship and any question about Aditya Chopra is not exactly cool with her.
The actress also insists that all her interviews be taped. So channel bytes are okay but print media folk need to carry a Dictaphone to ensure that no words are added here and there.

Barfi! touches 100 crore feet!

Barfi!, starring Ranbir Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D’Cruz, is now a member of the 100 crore club. This would be fantastic news for the team of Barfi! as Barfi! has also been announced as India’s official entry to the Oscars.
The movie has grossed Rs 100 crore in just 10 days since its release on September 14.
Taran Adarsh posted: “#Barfi has grossed 100 cr *worldwide* in 10 days.”
Barfi! joins this year’s big box office hits Ek Tha Tiger, Bol Bachchan and Rowdy Rathore, all of which have collected Rs 100 crore and over. The movie is still expected to collect a lot more.

Ek Tha Tiger finally gets 200 cr club status!

As anticipated and projected the Yash Raj Film’s last release, which was directed by Kabir Khan, EK Tha Tiger has at last touched the 200 crore mark.
Netting nearly 2 crore in its latest outing, the Salman Khan-Katrina Kaif starrer crossed the 200 crore mark in five weeks, just from India.
EK THA TIGER is also Salman Khan’s biggest overseas grosser with £1,414,600 from UK, Aus$622,200 from Australia and $2,650,000 from the US.
EK Tha Tiger is only the second movie to cross the 200 crore mark after the Amir Khan’s 3 Idiots. However, it looks really tough for ETT to cross the Rajkumar Hirani directed starrer as it’s run has almost come to an end.

Aishwarya Rai takes job of spreading awareness about protecting children from HIV infection!

Former Miss World, actress and now a mother, Aishwarya Rai adds another feather to her cap. She has been appointed as the new international goodwill ambassador for UNAIDS. She has now taken up the job of spreading awareness globally, on protecting children from HIV infection and increasing access to antiretroviral treatment. This is something which has always been very close to her heart.
Seemingly, Ashwarya had been approached by the United Nations for the same cause way back in 2002. But, at that time she couldn’t make a commitment as she was busy with her movie career.
Aishwarya told, “In India you commit to films years ahead, so I could never find that time in the diary to be able to commit to actual work being done, it would have been a great announcement, but I have never been the one about announcements, so I had kept it on hold and then earlier this year we happened to meet when they had actually come down to India and I had expressed that I was interested in real work being done.”
At a press conference, Michel Sidibe, the UNAIDS Executive Director welcomed Aishwarya Rai to the UNAIDS family.
“Mrs. Rai Bachchan is respected and admired by millions of people around the world,” Sidibe told. “I am convinced that through her global outreach, Mrs. Rai Bachchan can help UNAIDS reach its goal of eliminating new HIV infections among children by 2015.”
Aishwarya in turn told, “I am honoured to accept this appointment.”
She further added, “Spreading awareness on health issues, especially related to women and children, has always been a priority for me.”
“And now, as a new mother, I can personally relate to this — the joys and concerns of every mother and the hopes that we have for our children.”

“I strongly believe that every baby should be born free from HIV. And I wish that every woman living with HIV stays healthy and has access to treatment. I promise that with UNAIDS, I will do my utmost to make this happen,” she further added.

Amitabh Bachchan in tears due to Sridevi!

Amitabh Bachchan, Sridevi
The beauty of the 90s, Sridevi, is back on track with her upcoming movie ‘English Vinglish’, hitting theaters on October 5. The diva essays the role of an unconfident housewife, who enrolls in an English language class in order to impress her husband and family.
Well, do you know, Amitabh Bachchan has a cameo in the movie? Previously too, Big B and Sridevi have worked together in movies like Aakhree Raasta, Inquilab and Khuda Gawah.
The story line of ‘English Vinglish’ and Sridevi’s flawless performance moved Amitabh Bachchan so much that he was left in tears.
“A viewing of ‘English Vinglish’ directed by Gauri Shinde, wife of R Balki tonight, leaves me with collective lumps in the throat and a surge of flushed eyes near the tear ducts.
“And it is not all the emotion of a particular moment that puts one in such state. It is the uncontrollable effect of appreciation that prevents one from expressing any at all…,” Bachchan, 69, wrote on his blog.
The movie portrays the simplicity and ordinariness of life, and this is what impressed the veteran actor.
“In our simplicity lies the true story of a lifetime. Massive explosions and devastating action sequences make you wonder in high adrenalin awe. But equally, the ordinariness of everyday life, strikes many strings that work together in sympathetic chords. It is complex and most difficult to be weathered in by simplistic endeavour,” he wrote.
Mentioning that the Indian cinema is moving forward on a very positive note, Big B told, “The revelation of immense creative talent in this 100 years of Indian Cinema, surprises me with each passing day. The verve and vigour and enthusiasm of the myriad hopefuls in this elaborate and exceedingly competitive profession, is to be seen and experienced.”
“What wonderful times we live in. How compelling it has become to view each new and fresh concept with wonder and awe, and how frustrating to not be today among the calibre of those that are designing the rules of the game!!” posted the 69-year-old superstar.
Amitabh Bachchan is presently hosting the TV show Kaun Banega Crorepati 6.

The two conditions that he places are, says his film contract, “Shahrukh Khan’s film contract reportedly made two things clear: One, the actor will not lock lips with his heroine on screen; two, he will not ride a horse. The second condition came into being after SRK experienced severe back pain a few years ago.”

Salman Khan, Shera
A star like Salman Khan visibly cannot go unobserved in public. It is heard that the actor is now forced to doubled his security so as to ensure he doesn’t get mobbed by fans. The star’s fame is increasing by the day.
Salman’s bodyguard Shera, who has been with his for the past 15 years, tells a popular magazine, “Earlier, Bhai had six bouncers around him. Now, he has twelve.”
Salman is the only star in Bollywood to have such a large security team.
This crucial step had to be taken when on Eid last month; a huge crowd gathered in front of Salman’s Galaxy apartement and went out of control. In order to disperse the mod, cops were called in, and we hear, there was lathi charge too.
The actor always makes it a point to avoid public appearances when there is not enough security. He fears women, kids and old people getting hurt. Dabangg 2 shooting in Kanpur and Lucknow was called off freshly, for the same reason.
