Priyanka Chopra finalised for Tees Maar Khan?

Priyanka Chopra finalised for Tees Maar KhanFarah Khan has been on the lookout for the female lead of her new film “Tees Maar Khan”.
The idea was to sign a new girl, but in case one was not found, Farah was willing to take an established actress.
If reports are to be believed, Farah has now managed a casting coup of sorts. She has finalised Priyanka Chopra to play the lead opposite Akshay Kumar.
So, the once hot couple who gave many hits like “Andaaz”, “Aitraaz” and “Mujhse Sahaadi Karogi”, will once again scorch the screen in “Tees Maar Khan”.
Though many filmmakers have wanted to sign them, it is Farah who took the initiative to get the couple together.
Who had decided not to work with each other following reports of their romance several years ago.
Their link-up had upset Akki’s wife Twinkle and he’s said to have promised her never to work with Priyanka.
Recently, however, there were reports of Akshay and Priyanka breaking the ice and having a conversation while rehearsing for a stage performance.
Probably encouraged by this thaw in their cold war, Farah asked Akshay if he had any reservations about working with Priyanka, and he said that he would love to work with her.
However, Farah has not given any confirmation about this pairing and said that she will announce the female lead by mid-January.

Gauhar refused to make an entry with Anjana!Gauhar Khan has just entered Bollywood, but, apparently, after the acclaim she has received for Rocket Singh, she is already throwing her weight around.
Recently the actress was in Phuket to perform at a stage show with Anjana Sukhani.
Gauhar threw a fit as she wanted a solo entry. She refused to make an entry with Anjana.
A source at the event reveals, “Anjana and Gauhar were supposed to make an entry together for the opening.
But a few hours before the show, Gauhar spoke to the organisers and the choreographer and demanded that she make a solo entry.
Just a few minutes before the show, Anjana was informed about the change and so she made her entry after Gauhar’s act.”
Anjana claims ignorance, which can always be construed as bliss. She says, “I am not aware of this.
I did what I was told to do. The organisers wanted a joint entry and we were following the choreographer.” However, Gauhar says she had her reasons for putting her foot down. She says, “There were some last minute changes in the act and I wasn’t informed, which was quite unprofessional on their part. I kept my commitment and finished the show.”

To Bollywood hottie Lara Dutta who is already under media glare for her new relationship with tennis star Mahesh Bhupathi.

The rumour was that our Lara Dutta, who was reportedly dating New York Yankees baseballer Derek Jeter, had also caught the eye of the greatest golfer in the world.
A US newspaper, in a story on Tiger, had the champion golfer denying he was dating “Miss Universe Lara Dutta of India or trying to steal her from New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter.”

Spotted – Rakhi Sawant looking cute

Rakhi SawantIt was Christmas day and the markets at Lokhandwala, a hip suburb in Mumbai were in for some rest in the afternoon as most of the shoppers had finished shopping for the festival. But not our dear Rakhi Sawant who was spotted walking down the streets dressed in casual chic and an attitude to match.
A birdie who spotted her in a blunt haircut (or was it a wig?) says, “Rakhi was wearing decent western clothes and a Santa cap and surprisingly looked rather cute. Even her make up was perfect and she did not look her usual garish self. Without a care in the world she managed to garner curious glances from passer bys even without doing funny antics that she usually is famous for.”
And what did she shop for? “Well, she entered a shop which sells lifestyle products, clothes and all” concludes our source.
Well, let’s hope she’s shopped for more sensible stuff and keeps on the trend of looking presentable all the time! Keep it up, Rakhi…

3 idiots Movie Review - 3rd Review

3 idiots Movie ReviewFarhan (Madhavan) and Raju (Sharman), 10 years after they have finished their engineering from India’s most prestigious engineering college find a clue to finally find their lost friend from college. Rannchoddas Shamaldas Chanchad aka Rancho (Aamir) their ex-room mate in the college hostel had silently disappeared on the graduation day leaving behind no clue of where he had left for. Rancho was the life of the college and with his unique wit had back then even managed to rattle the strict head of the college, Viru Sahastrabuddhe (Boman) but at the same time managed to win the heart of his daughter Pia (Kareena). Before leaving, Rancho had brought a major change in almost every person’s life he had come closer to. Starting their journey from Delhi and going to Shimla, Manali and finally ending up in Ladakh, what surprise is in store for Farhan and Raju when they finally manage to meet Rancho forms the climax of the film.After two back to back landmark films of Hindi cinema Munnabhai MBBS and Lage Raho Munnabhai, expectations from Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 idiots had been very high. Added to that, was the combination of producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Hirani and Aamir Khan coming together for the first time. So if you wondering whether the film manages to live up to the expectations then yes it does. Aal is well in here! Along with his co-scriptwriter Abhijat Joshi, Hirani packs in many subtle messages through his narrative and successfully drives home the point that when it comes to planning for one’s future, one must follow his heart and do what our hearts tell us rather than what our parents expect us to do. There are plenty of sequences that stay in your heart long after the film is over. Be it the unexpected suicide of a pressurized student, Aamir’s entry scene, the dinner situation at Sharman’s house, Sharman’s job interview, Madhavan convincing his parents to allow him to chose his choice of work and of course the laughathon caused by interchanging of words Chamatkar to Balaatkar by Aamir of an unsuspecting student. However, the child delivery sequence in the pre climax has been unnecessarily over stretched.The film is a must watch for every Aamir fan. Just check the way he successfully carries out the role of a 22 year old despite being 44 years older.

Deepika Padukone's plan of funding underprivileged sportsmen dashed

Deepika Padukone's plan of funding underprivileged sportsmen dashedDeepika Padukone's plan of funding underprivileged and needy sportsmen has been dashed momentarily.
The actor had to put this philanthropic initiative on the backburner as she is overworked and has five back-to-back releases next year.
However, she promises that she would revive the project in 2011.A source says, "Deepika has been very busy of late. She has got a lot of work lined up next year too.
That wouldn't give her any time to concentrate on this project. So she has decided to pull the plug for the time being."
As this project is Deepika's brainchild, she is very protective about how it should begin.
The source adds, "She is not doing this to garner attention. She has a sporting person's soul in her and having seen the plight of needy sportsmen from close quarters, she thought of helping them out.
Deepika wants to sustain the project and fund it if possible throughout her lifetime. She has been silently scouting, observing and researching about good talents from across India for a long time."
Confirming the development, Deepika says, "Though the project is on the backburner now, the research work will be on as we are looking to start it from 2011. Next year is a very busy one for me. So I don't want to start this project just for the sake of doing it. I don't enter into things to come out of it easily and so I will take time to roll out this project. But when it starts, it won't stop."

Vidya's one of the boys

Vidya's one of the boysVidya Balan is glowing with the compliments pouring in for her superlative performance in R Balki’s Paa.
She may be a foot shorter than both her Bachchan co-stars, but when it came to the histrionics, she matched Amitabh and Abhishek perfectly.
Now she’s channelising her energies into Ketan Maroo’s Ishqiya where once again she is it pitted with two versatile talents Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi.
Talking about her sensuous role in this robust, earthy, love triangle, the diminutive actress says, “I play a village belle.
Yet I’m fully aware of my sexual charms and within the four walls of the bedroom, I’m unapologetic about using my guile and charm.
Vidya says quality work like Paa and now Ishqiya has made her realise that if she is patient, the right roles are bound to come her way. “Once again I have as many advantages as I had when I did Parineeta,’’ says the actress. “My filmmakers have realised that given an opportunity, I will not let them down.’’
The coming year is an important year for Vidya. She starts the year with Ishqiya and then moves onto Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Chenab Gandhi. “The decision to do fewer films is entirely mine,’’ says the actress who is now super-confident that when it comes to her career, she will not make one false move.
On the personal front, it is rumoured that almost all her heroes be it John Abraham (Salaam-e-Ishq), Shahid Kapoor (Kismat Konnection) and now Arshad Warsi (Ishqiya) are attracted to her. “Rubbish,’’ she flails her hands and says.
“In fact, I think none of my heroes even treat me like a lady. I’m treated like one of the boys. My heroes back-slap me and we share a few laughs and jokes. However, I don’t think any of them is attracted to me. If they were, I would have noticed.’’
Well, even as the rumour mills continue to buzz about Vidya past romances with John and Shahid, the actress herself has rubbed her slate clean... and is looking forward to her knight in shining armour putting in an appearance in 2010. What should one say — Halleluah!

Wincing In Pain Katrina Kaif Leaves For Family Vacation In London

The healing process after her surgery last week is yet not even half-complete. But Katrina Kaif, recovering quietly from surgery at her Mumbai home, stubbornly decided to go and join her family in London for the annual Christmas-New Year vacation, which she had promised herself for months now. Katrina flew out of Mumbai early Wednesday morning after getting a reluctant go-ahead from her doctors at Breach Candy hospital. Wincing in pain she said a few hours before departure, “The pain will remain for a while. But the process of healing is on. I got my doctor’s consent in Mumbai and I’ve another doctor in London who’s fully aware of my condition. The doctors said the pain would be the same in Mumbai or London. And as long as I’m very careful about not exerting myself I’ll be fine. So I’m off.”

Katrina had gone into a depression earlier during the week when she felt she wouldn’t be able to join her sisters and brother in London because of her medical condition. On Tuesday after visiting the doctors Katrina and her mother took a decision. Said Katrina, “I can’t exert myself, can’t dance around or be boisterous. But that’s okay. Because our family is in any case not the dancing type. I just want to be with my sister’s little boy take him to the toy stores in London and buy him everything he wants.”Katrina returns to Mumbai in the first week of January, hopefully fully healed. “Luckily I’ve a doctor in London who knows how to look after me. So basically I’m just moving into a happier state of mind by being close to the people I love. That would help me heal quicker. Wish me luck.”

In fact, this condition generally appears in women who are in their productive age group (meaning 20 years to 40 years of age).

Amrita Rao kicks Rani out of her home

Recently Amrita hired the services of a new maid, Rani who apparently was a crazy fan. Amrita already has two maids, a spot boy, a personal assistant and a driver at her ready disposal but hired the services of an additional maid for her mother who requires help frequently with the household work as the other employees are busy tending to Amrita's needs.

Amrita Rao kicks Rani out of her home

This maid apparently was an avid follower of hers from Rajasthan who had come via the reference of a neighboring building's resident. She used to intently watch each and every move of Amrita's whilst she was at home which caused a lot of unrest to Amrita as her mother's needs seemed to be sidelined. Infact once Amrita's family member caught her looking into Amrita's personal wardrobe and trying on few of her garments when no one was at home. At one instance Amrita who really loses her cool was seen getting angry but her heart melted when the maid began crying and stating how poor she was.
However things did not improve as the maid used to tag along everywhere with Amrita and started being haphazard in her daily chores and watched movies of Amrita's day in and day out. Since Amrita and her family prefer to stay away from controversies, they simply retired her from her services without any prior intimation to her and never spoke about the incident to anyone. Apparently no one has seen or heard of the maid ever since.
Amrita Rao's spokesperson, Jashoda Madhavji confirms the story and states, "Amrita was pretty wary to hire anyone new as she doesn't like to experiment with untested waters but being a family girl her mother's needs came first and hence she willingly agreed. At the same time she is one person who is quick to learn from her experiences and will be on the lookout for a new maid soon!"

Aishwarya Rai : Who is Aish's ardent fan ?

Aishwarya Rai : Who is Aish's ardent fan ?Well, what can one say when an astounding beauty like Aishwarya Rai is shooting right under one’s nose? Nothing except admire her for her beauty of course. That’s not what our chocolate boy hero of bollywood did when he had seen her several years ago shooting for his dad’s home production.
The film was Aa Ab Laut Chale, this was Rishi Kapoor’s film and it starred Aishwarya with Akshay Khanna among other artists.
It so happened that Ranbir Kapoor would go to see the shooting everyday and he really became an ardent fan of her. So, he started to make paintings of her during the shooting itself. He hid himself and painted to avoid embarrassment. But, Aishwarya knew about it and she also did not want to embarrass the teenager so she said nothing to him.
Now, it so happened that during the premier of Paa when Ranbir had gone to see it, Aishwarya suddenly remembered the incident and told Abhishek about it. According to reports Ranbir was so embarrassed that he immediately left the venue.
Now what can one say? The sweet gesture by this sweet actor has to be appreciated; it is really an honour for anyone to have such ardent fans isn’t it?

Shilpa Shetty enjoying her honeymoon

Shilpa Shetty has been walking on air ever since she tied the knot with the man of her dreams, Raj Kundra. After a rather extended honeymoon in the Bahamas, the newly weds have returned to London and now packing up again to leave for a cruise through the Mediterranean. This time, however, their families will be joining them.

The actress likens her honeymoon to a dream. “Back to reality, the last couple of weeks felt like a dream -- from the sunny Bahamas back in London for the last couple of days... There's no place like London when it comes to celebrating Christmas,” Shilpa wrote on her blog.


However, Shilpa and Raj won’t be in London on New Year’s Eve. The couple, along with their families, will ring in 2010 on a ship.


“Really excited about the Mediterranean cruise we are taking with the family, my first ever, making it even more special. I will be out at sea for the next two weeks... Will be bringing in New Year on the ship,” she added.


Guess Shilpa was right when she recently said that she’s going through the best phase of her life after marriage with Raj.

Rakhi Sawant ready for another ‘Swayamvar’

Rakhi Sawant is desperate and, given a chance, she can have another swayamvar. The lady recently revealed this to a daily.


rakhi-sawant sexy bollywood actress pictures

Love or marriage, the lady is hopeful to get her man of dreams after she dumped Elesh Parujanwala, whom she selected from her swayamvar. He is not the kind with whom she would love to spend her life. “Elesh was not honest. He was bankrupt and loved going to nightclubs. He told me all this after our engagement. I am not the type to accept it,” Rakhi is quoted as saying.


In fact, according to Rakhi, Elesh’s family never considered her as a bahu and they never bothered to call her during the days she was seeing Elesh, nor did they give her “shagun”.


In fact, she is happy with her decision to break up with Elesh. According to her, “Wahan pe saare kangle the (All of them were broke there).”


So after all this, Rakhi has made her mind. “If I get another chance I will have another swayamvar.” And this time it will be her family who will help her to take the ‘right decision’.
