Vidya Balan creates havoc at Khar railway station

Vidya Balan looks for missing husband at railway station

It seems mere music launches and interviews won’t suffice a film’s promotion. Now-a-days film marketing has evolved to such an extent that reel characters come to life in the real world to create a buzz about their film.

As per sources, Vidya made an appearance in her pregnant look from the filmKAHAANI at one of the railway stations in Mumbai. And like in the film, where Vidya goes searching for her husband at every nook and corner, she probed the people present at the site about her husband as a part of the promotional campaign.

As Vidya Balan arrived the crowd went berserk watching their favourite actress. She then went ahead to the platform and even boarded a local train.

Vidya previously stepped out in a pregnant look at the trailer launch of the film. While unveiling the trailer, Vidya said it in style, ”I am six months pregnant and I have come all over from London to search my missing husband. Will you help me out in finding my husband? But that has to be really quick as my delivery is on 9th March 2012 (hinting about the release date of the film).”

Looks like after tantalizing the audience with her THE DIRTY PICTURE, Vidya is all set to enchant with a new KAHAANI!

Did Saif force Kareena to do a Mujra?


In today’s time when hot item numbers are in great demand and add sparkle to films, Saif Ali Khan is treading a different route with his upcoming film AGENT VINOD. Saif is reiterating the magic of ‘Mujra’ in this film, which seemed to have vanished from Hindi cinema. Saif’s beloved and co-star Kareena Kapoor will be seen doing her first Mujra song in the Sriram Raghavan directed film.

When we probed the actor-cum-producer about the idea behind having ‘Mujra’, Saif unequivocally said, ”We haven’t seen a classic Mujra happening on-screen for a long time. We had enough discussions over it – like should we do an item? Should we get another big star and do a hot number? As most Hindi films have hot songs. Hot in terms of outfits and the presentation of the camera. And finally we thought we would go slightly different and make it interesting in terms of expressions and music.”

Not just Saif even his business partner at Illuminati Films, Dinesh Vijyan wanted to have a Mujra than a raunchy item number in the film.

Saif divulges, ”Even Dinesh was also pushing for Mujra rather than a raunchy kind of nightclub song.”

He further asserts, ”In AGENT VINOD raunchy night club song is there in the background and that’s happening most of the time. We needed to make our item little more different.”

AGENT VINOD commences his mission on 23rd March 2012.

Veena Malik’s Channo deleted for Anna Hazare!

Buzz is that controversial babe Veena Malik‘s item song Channo from the upcoming film GALI GALI CHOR HAI has been deleted. But wait before you to jump to any conclusion.

It so happened that the makers of the film recently organised a special screening for social activist Anna Hazare at Ralegan Siddhi. Probably, keeping Anna in mind the makers decided to tentatively edit the item song for the special screening.

The song has Veena as the face of a political party. And during the election time Veena’s character has to perform to gather votes for the party.

Directed by Rumy Jaffry, the Akshaye KhannaMugdha Godse and Shriya Saranstarrer releases on February 3, 2012.

AGNEEPATH collections crash on second day


Even while the AGNEEPATH team was celebrating its Republic Day box office performance, which was marginally better than BODYGUARD‘s first day, and apparently exulting over it, the second day (Friday) collections had registered a dramatic and abnormal drop of approximately 50% to 60% across the board. It’s not that BODYGUARD’s collections had not taken a beating after the bumper Eid day, but they had dropped by a mere 15%. AGNEEPATH producer Karan Johar must have been aware of this development while he was talking to the press on Friday evening. The media persons who were in the know of things chose to keep mum, and preferred not to play a spoilsport. Was it a deliberate move by the producer to stem the tide of impending disaster by keeping the positive buzz going in the media?

This is a bolt from the blue for everyone, including the trade pundits. The exhibitors who have paid exorbitant MGs will be a worried lot now. Everything hinges on the box office scenario on Saturday and Sunday. The collections should have as dramatic a rise as the fall on Friday. It will be disastrous for the film otherwise, signifying its wholesale rejection by the audience and a strong undercurrent of negative word of mouth, enough to seal the film’s box office fate. There were stray reports that over-dramatised violent scenes were found repulsive by family audiences.

Even if the distributors break even in the final analysis, which is certain since there are no important releases next week, it will be extremely disappointing news for the film trade that had pinned big hopes on the star-studded extravaganza and theChikni Chameli… item number to pull in the crowds and revive the sagging industry morale after the abject debacle of Abbas-Mustan’s PLAYERS in the beginning of the year.

Nikhil Dwivedi has donned a new Avatar

For his next under production film “Tamanchey” he has almost doubled up as an Executive Producer, helping out the first time Producer Suryaveer Singh.

Since the director of the film is also a first timer, Nikhil has been personally involved in assembling a worthy Technical Crew and
especialists for the film. So much so that many corporate honchos are now taking note and talking of how “Tamanchey” is being shot with precise planning and looking like an A-List film despite a modest budget.

“Tamanchey” also boasts of a visual director from Hollywood. A visua director is a principal technician in Hollywood Films but it ll
perhaps be the first time that such a technician has been appointed for a Hindi Feature film.

In addition to the Camera Crew which is from Hollywood as well, the film has a ‘Song Director’ who is leaving no stone un-turned to make the songs look visually appealing.

Sources say in “Tamanchey”, which is an intense Love-Story set against the backdrop of crime, Nikhil Dwivedi (who after the success of ‘Shor in the City’ is suddenly back in the solo lead bracket), plays a character loosely inspired from the Underworld Don Abu Salem, though the producer vehemently denies any such inspiration or association.

ANUPAM KHER’S BOOK CREATES A SALES RECORD IN INDIA

350 copies of Anupam Kher’s ‘The Best Thing About You Is You’ were sent to Jaipur for the Lit Festival. Reports say that the bookshop at the festival grounds sold the entire lot and book orders had to be placed in large numbers. ‘The Best Thing About You Is You’, thus becomes the highest selling title at the Jaipur Literature Festival. A recently conducted AC Neilsen survey reports that the book in its first week was on number 250. In the second week it was number 34 and now in the third week, it is number 18. Success of the book has been talked about on Facebook, Twitter as well as by Penguin Publication. Next week onwards, contests and other schemes for readers and book buyers will be part of the promotion for the book.

‘The Best Thing About You Is You’ has examples from the actor’s own life and experiences. He subtly motivates and inspires you by providing a handy guide to discovering your real self and finding peace of mind and contentment in today’s chaotic times. He feels that the best way to counter the negativity that exists in the world these days, where people are gripped by fear, insecurity, stress, frustration and unhappiness is by acquiring a positive outlook. Citing his own example, he reveals how a humble background need not be an obstacle to attaining the dizzying heights of success, but simultaneously, sounds a warning about the importance of gracefully handling such success. He shares the vital ingredients in his recipe for success as well as no-nonsense methods to get the most out of your life. This volume contains the author’s views on a wide variety of topics such as the anger syndrome, the phenomenon of change, thought control, dealing with relationships, conquering stress, getting rid of fears, coming to terms with failure, realizing the power within oneself, coping with loss and death and much more. Here’s a book you will find yourself turning to for soothing, insightful guidance and practical advice no matter what situation you’re in. You’ll come to realize that the best thing about you is YOU!


I LOVE MY TIRANGA

Tiranga- the identity of every Indian, the tri color Flag which flies high in the sky and raises the honor of every Indian. This year Mr. Khalid Qureshi senior ticket checker in western Railways Mumbai, starts his 80 days run to get Tiranga displayed in every home and educational and religious institutes which will start from 26thJanuary 2012 @ 8:30am from Gateway of India Mumbai to India Gate of New Delhi. He will run for almost 1,900 KM, Mumbai to New Delhi carrying Tiranga, to encourage, inspire and enthuse every Indian to love Tiranga, and proudly display it every day.

 

Khalid Qureshi as a visionary took the initiative of I LOVE MY TIRANGA once while he was sitting at his home and was checking his medals and achievements boldly kept in the frame with honor. He realized that everything was at his home except for “The Tiranga”.

 

Two years ago, Khalid, conceived a bold vision, to popularize a cause very dear to his heart ‐ The Tiranga. He said, “Why is it that our flag is unfurled only when we win at cricket, or on national day, or during anti-corruption rallies. We Indians should be proud to display Tiranga every day and not just wait for an occasion!”

 

Khalid feels it is highly unfortunate that any Indian will love to adorn his house with all the luxuries of the world, but a simple thought of displaying Tiranga, which is the representation of patriotism, love and respect for the country, will never cross his mind. “How many Indian home can boast of having a Tiranga displayed with pride and honor?” questioned Khalid. His humble motive is to trigger the thought on the minds of every Indian that Indian Flag should be hoisted in every house.

 

Tiranga the national flag of India stands for Indian Culture, Charm, Truth and simplicity of our country’s power, unity and energy.

 

Mr. Qureshi also stated that, “Keeping Tiranga at home will build in character of every Indian.” His initiative ‘I Love My Tiranga’ has been started with a mission to have a ‘Tiranga in Every Indian Home’.

 

Khalid participated in Marathons organized at Goa on 11thDecember and Ahmedabad on 25thDecember, 2012 running with Indian flag in hand. He was invited as Guest Runner at Run Powai Run on 8thJanuary, 2012. He also participated in the Half Marathon at Mumbai Marathon, 2012.

Kailash Kher inspired by his childhood

Sonu-Nigam,-Kabeer-Kher,-Kailsh-Kher

Singer Kailash Kher recently released his new album “Rangeele”. This album which is recorded by his music company “Kailasa” has one conversational song called “Hudkaan mann biti” which is co-sung by Kailash’s 2 year old son Kabir. About this song Kailash says “I remember, when I was 5 years of age, while playing with my friends we had a rule that the person who would lose the game  had to carry the winner on a piggy back and go from one place to another saying “Hudkann mann biti”. So while I was writing the songs for my album “Rangeele” I was reminded of my childhood days and  I thought why not share these memories with my son. And this is how the song “Hudkann mann biti” was born.

Kolaveri Dhanush signed on for a Bollywood film

B-town’s latest news is that Tanu Weds Manu director Aanand L Rai has signed Tamil actor Dhanush for his upcoming filmRaanjhnaa. The director has been quoted saying that, “For the past six months, I’ve been looking for a simple boy to play the lead inRaanjhnaa. My requirement was a man who could look vulnerable on screen. When I saw Dhanush in the Tamil film Aadukalam (for which he won the National award), I liked him immediately. He looks very ordinary and honest, and that was the demand of the character.”

Apparently Dhanush is not well versed with Hindi, but this won’t pose as a barrier for him working in Bollywood! The actor/singer is keen to explore this part of the industry and learn the local language and culture.

When quizzed about the movie, the director adds, “The film is an intense love story. Just like my film Tanu Weds Manu, the film and its characters will take you to Delhi, Punjab, Chennai, etc.”

 

Dhanush too is very excited about the project. News is that the director had approached him for the movie before Kolaberi Di happened. “It’s a big deal to get a launch like this at the beginning of my career here. Aanand’s script is different from regular cinema; it’s one of those ‘made to make a difference’ kind of films”, quips the actor.

 

The actor who recently visited Banaras with director Anand Rai was amazed with the culture and the traditions in a different part of the country. Buzz is that he is even planning to hire a coach to learn Hindi. He is convinced that by the time the shoot gets over, he will be able to communicate fluently in the local language.

Ajay Devgn spotted at Mumbai Gurudwara with entire family

B-town’s superstar Ajay Devgn was spotted visiting a famous Mumbai Gurudwara with his entire family and cousins recently!

One of the little known facts about the actor is that he actually is a true blue Punjabi and that he regularly prays at the Gurudwara with his whole family! The actor was seen at the famous Gurudwara at Four Bungalows, Andheri west, along with his parents Mrs Veena Devgn and Mr Veeru Devgn, wife Kajol, children Nysa and Yug and cousins Vikrant and Dharmendra.

Well, now that’s a sweet slice of life revealed of the superstar!

SNEAK PEEK REVIEW – AGNEEPATH – RATING 3.5 / 5

BY ARYEMAN RAJ

Remakes are in, but seem to be disastrous like the recent Don2. Karan Johar seems to have steered clear with repeating mistakes made by his contemporaries in tinsel town. Agneepath with superstar Hrithik Roshan is not an iota from the original. That’s what sets apart Dharma Productions and KJo’s over-fertile mind and ingenuous brainwave from making it an enjoyable film.

Giving out the storyline before the film has released would be not right on my part. Highlights of the film are the restrained (when required) and intense (moments of sheer delight) acting of Hrithik. He knows that he would be compared to Big B’s persona of play Vijay Dinanath Chauhan. Although the yesteryear superstar got loads of flak for his innovative voice modulation, the audiences never accepted him…this is what Hrithik fortunately didn’t venture into.

The scene stealers are Sunju baba and especially Rishi Kapoor who has given a mind-blowing performance. Priyanka Chopra is just a prop and of course Chikni Chameli Katrina although a highlight has already been blasted all over the channels. So the novelty of the item number doesn’t really seem eagerly awaited on-screen. Commendable performance to be worth mentioned is the sweet little young girl who charms you with her flawless performance.

A must watch for all those Hrithik Roshan fans. Sunju baba seems to have matured and it definitely proves that you need an able director and a strong ghost director like KJo to clinch the soul from this frivolous actor. Music isn’t much worth talking about. The action sequences are worth a dekho. KJo’s shines again with his vengeance to prove to Sanjay Leela Bhansali that he is no bubble-gum hit machine.

Watch it and you will surely vouch what a disaster Don2 is compared to this remake. At least it has a soul and a sensible storyline to boot.

Trapped between 2 un’Saif’ Khans, is Kareena Kapoor loving the adulation?

Kareena Kapoor is caught between Aamir Khan and Imran Khan. And loving it too.

When she is busy with post production of Talaash and when with Aamir he keeps asking her about Imran and teasing her that she only wants to work with Imran.

When she is promoting Karan Johar Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu Imran constantly keeps teasing about Mammu and how she gives him all attention.

SInce the mama bhanja are so busy with their respective films and hardly get the time to meet each other these days.. When she is shooting with Imran.. Imran always asks her about Aamir and when she is with Aamir, he only asks her about Imran

Not that Kareena minds it because she is ver good friends with both Imran and Aamir. And loves attention from both Khans.

Kareena Kapoor’s quote

Kareena Kapoor. Its an absolute pleasure working with Aamir Khan and the young Imran Khan. Both are really very adorable as co stars.

Imran Khan’s quote

Imran Khan. Oh that’s an easy banter… I love to tease Kareena that she has no time for me and giving all attention to Aamir and his film.

She is paired with actor Pawan Shankar, who is playing the character of Pradeep Singh, Mona’s husband.

Mona is a beautiful woman who loves her family but her primary priority is her three kids. Her life revolves around her children and her husband Pradeep, who knows that Mona’s love for him will never fade away. Both have reached a comfortable zone and the nature of their love is an all-encompassing, understanding and a forgiving one, where the need to rekindle fiery romance is not as important as PTA meetings and the next family holiday.

SUNNY LEONE’S series is an “Apprentice”-like show

 

Adult film star Sunny Leone wants her run on the new reality show “My Bare Lady 2: Open for Business” to improve the image of folks in her line of work.

“My main goal, since I came into this industry,” divulged Leone, “is I wanted to change one person’s view at a time.”

She gets a chance to do that on “My Bare Lady 2,” which was aired on the Fox Reality Channel.

The series is an “Apprentice”-like show where four adult film actresses – Leone, Brooke HavenCasey Parker and Veronica Rayne – live together and get business guidance from executive coach Mike Mataraza. Together, they’ll rely on what they learn from Mataraza to try to run a business outside of the bedroom. In the first episode, for instance, they try to boost income at a car wash.

The business world is nothing new to Leone.

“I treat my career, my image, as a business already,” she said.

Fact is, it was her business acumen that got Leone, the 2003 Penthouse Pet of the Year, on the show in the first place. When she auditioned last winter, she thought she was trying out for a dating series. But soon the questions turned to dollars and cents and she was cast on “My Bare Lady 2.”

“Sunny is very, very smart,” said Bob Boden, senior vice president of programming and production at the Fox Reality Channel. “When she came into our interview, we knew right away she was right for the show.”

EXPOSED – PEELING THE MASK OFF THE PORN ACTOR CALLED SUNNY LEONE

Many are unaware that Sunny Leone was also was a reporter for MTV and she appeared for the first time like that in 2005 at the MTV Awards on MTV India. Sunny also had a small appearance in the famous movie “The girl next door”. She was invited at many TV shows and she was there like a guest. It was a very interesting experience for her she enjoyed a lot that period of time from her life. Because she had and still has a beautiful and healthy body she was selected to appear in some fitness commercials and she accepted.

She was invited by many important people at many important shows and events and she was very happy because of that because she wanted to be someone not just because of her career like porn actress.

Although Sunny has confessed that in the near future she wants to be a married woman and to make children and to have a normal and happy family, her relationships have never materialized. Her parents never agreed what she was doing but they hoped one day she will renounce at her career and will be a normal person.

She is a beautiful woman and she deserves a normal life with husband and children and not a career like porn actress. It is not too late and she can stop here her career and start a new life, but this thing depends only of her. Beneath the cute, bubbly smile, there is obviously loads of pain within her. She shies away when probed on why she continues being a porn actor despite having made her share of money in the bargain. Secretive, mystical and not willing to let the cat out of the bag, Sunny Leone surely has some business deals lined up even when she plans to get married.

EXPOSED – SUNNY LEONE’S RELATIONSHIPS WITH MEN WHO MATTER.

Leone was engaged to Matt Erikson, a vice-president of marketing at Playboy Enterprises, but they broke up in 2008 (4 years ago), and is currently dating her business partner Daniel Webber. She definitely knows which side of her bread is buttered…while she holds the pot of honey…………which brings in the money
