Preity Zinta blasts plastic surgery buzz


Controversy has to be her middle name. Or maybe it’s just that she likes to stay in the news all the time.Whatever the case, Preity Zinta is back in the public eye, and this time, it is because of allegations of plastic surgery.
The actress, who never shies away from speaking out her mind, was left enraged after rumours that her famous dimple was ‘created’ after plastic surgery.
We ask her for her take on the buzz and she retorts: “That is probably the silliest thing I have ever heard! No! My dimple is real.” There’s no messing with this lady’s dimples, for sure.

And Kangana Ranaut falls down


Kangana Ranaut is going to be out of action for at least week, after having sustained a minor fracture following a bike accident. The actress was shooting in Punjab for her movie ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ when it happened. She was shooting a scene where she’s riding a bike, and she also happened to be wearing ghungroos on her feet.
The actress lost her balance, and when the bike spun out of control, she hurt herself. What added to the injuries were the ghungroos on her feet, which pierced her skin an led to bleeding on her feet.
Following the accident, Kangana has been advised bed rest for a week.
We hope the actress takes it easy and gets well soon. And that she’s more careful when riding bikes, while wearing traditional Indian accessories like the ghungroo!

Bipasha Basu learns Bhojpuri for film


Only a few days back, Katrina Kaif  got her fans frenzied as she spoke Bhojpuri in Bihar during a promotional event for her upcoming flick ‘Raajneeti’. And now, Bollywood bombshell Bipasha Basu is all set to give ‘Bihar Ki Beti’ Katrina a tough competition! Bips, who has pulled off several bold roles with élan in some of her blockbuster movies in the past, has taken up something completely different this time round.
The actress has been roped in for Priyadarshan’s next venture, whereby she would be seen in an absolutely de-glamourised role. Not just that, Bollywood’s Bengali beauty Bips is reportedly learning hardcore Bhojpuri these days, as she would be playing an ordinary Bihari woman in the same. Reports reveal that Bips will be seen wearing cotton sarees and mouthing Bhojpuri dialogues in the upcoming flick, for which she’s been attending special tuitions for quite sometime now.
It’s been revealed that the film is based on the real-life honour killings that take place in Bihar, and Bipasha is ditching make-up and is learning to take on an accent to portray a simple Bihari woman in the same.
Well, we would just say – All The Best Bipasha!

Hrithik Roshan is a nervous wreck. He just released the music of his forthcoming film ‘Kites’ and is waiting for feedback on it.He has incidentally sung a song in the film and that is what makes him so anxious.“It’s finally time to face the music!

Please give me your feedback only once you have heard the CD!” he says. His fans are already pouring in with praises though across the net.

Asin in trouble


Asin came to Bollywood with a bang with Ghajini and later everything was brought to dust when London Dreams flopped. She was being touted as the next big Sridevi who could take over Bollywood. But as the Vipul Shah film flopped poorly, she doesn’t have takers. And mind you the film was riding on the shoulders of Salman Khan and Ajay Devgan.
Asin who had by that time started showing a lot of irritability and attitude at commercial shoots as well as when it came to taking script narrations has been pulled back by a few yards now.Asin is wondering what her next step should be. Should she wait for some more better offers to come her way or should she pack her bags up and go back home.
Last heard, she had some B grade offers which she doesn’t even want to come close to and is not even acknowledging that she met the people concerned for the said B grade films.

Contradictory to earlier reports, Akshay Kumar becomes the top tax-payer in Bollywood, yet again. Akki has pipped to the post stars like Aamir Khan and Shahrukh Khan to top the list.

akshay-kumar04

And now we understand why Akki was chosen to feature in the ad by the Income-Tax Department to promote compliance with taxes. Surprisingly, the star had no big hits last year, and all his mega-budget films Chandni Chowk to China, Kambakkht Ishq and Blue bombed at the box office. Then too, he paid an advance tax of Rs 9 crore in March 2010, reveals a daily. Now, his total advance tax payment in the current financial year is of Rs 18 crore. Last year, he paid a sum of Rs 31 crore as taxes.

 

However, according to some media reports, it was Shahrukh as the top tax-payer but he reportedly comes in the third position. Aamir ranks second with the advance payment of Rs 12 crore.

 

Among others top tax-payers are Abhishek Bachhcan, Aishwarya Rai, Amitabh Bachchan, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor who joins the league this year with an advance tax payment of Rs 2.1 crore.

Priyanka Chopra comes between Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif

Now here’s a piece of news that is bound to end all speculation of an awaited love affair between Ranbir and Katrina on the sets of ‘Khamoshi’.

priyanka chopra

The gorgeous stars, who are often linked with each other, will have little chance to get up-close and personal on the sets of their forthcoming movie.

As the dainty Priyanka Chopra will be on location too. And no, Miss Piggy Chops is not playing any spy role but will be present on the sets as a part of the movie.

 

Reports suggest that the much talked about Anurag Basu flick ‘Khamoshi’ will not only have Ranbir and Katrina but also Priyanka in the lead role.

 

Thereby, leaving little or no chance for any romantic alliance between the dishy Kapoor scion and his latest fixation Kat. Confirming the news a source said, “Anurag Basu is currently trying to finalise.

 

The dates as Priyanka is also committed to Don 2 with Farhan Akhtar and Shah Rukh Khan”.So even though the duo will have no chance to get personal.

 

On this one, sources state that Katrina is giving Imtiaz Ali’s offer opposite Ranbir a second thought. The stunner had initially refused Imtiaz for Basu’s film but considering that Imtiaz is known to give his actresses a centre role in his films, Kat might just hop on the opportunity.

Kajol little worried about the dance steps in Stepmom!

She may be pregnant but that hasn’t deterred Kajol from working as hard as she does. While shooting for a song for Siddharth Malhotra’s remake of Stepmom, Kajol had to do some energetic dance steps. She had to be able to do as fine a job as Elvis Presley did in Jailhouse Rock, seeing as that was the song she was shooting for. The filmmakers have bought the rights of the song.

kajol Stepmom

Buzz up!Kajol was a little worried about the dance steps affecting her health. She wasn’t too sure about the steps when choreographers Bosco and Ceaser showed them to her during rehearsals. She asked them to tone the steps down considerably.

 

The steps were changed as per her request but as the shoot went on, she started to enjoy it and as it is one of her favourite songs, she danced along with the rhythm of the song. Finally, she ended up doing something similar to what the choreographers had earlier planned.

 

The film team was naturally concerned and was very alert throughout. In one portion, she was supposed to dance on a piano. Though Kajol wasn’t worried about it, the unit was very protective. The director even suggested that the sequence could be done away with but Kajol had no qualms doing it.

 

In the film, Kajol plays Arjun Rampal’s ex-wife while Kareena plays his girlfriend. Both Arjun and Kareena were part of the song too.

 

According to the director, all of the actors have just put in their best into the song and they enjoyed shooting for it. He hopes that the fun they had while shooting is reflected when audiences see the song.

Aishwarya Rai, Katrina Kaif or Kareena Kapoor - Whom would you zip your lip with?Bollywood boasts of many beautiful actresses who have set the male pulse racing with an electrical speed whenever they do.


A raunchy scene with their oh-so-lucky male co-stars. But, if you get an opportunity, then whom would you zip your lip with:

1. Katrina Kaif- Katrina has won some coveted awards in the honour of her luscious lips.That are said to be Bollywood’s Best Lips of the current times. Even her commercial.That highlights her wet lips yearning for a drop of a soft drink makes us almost tear into our TV screens.

2. Kareena Kapoor- She has smooched in many films and has toppled Mallika Sherawat (who is having a quiet time hissing about somewhere) from the throne of Miss Kiss. Her extremely penetrative kisses with Hrithik, Shahid, Saif and even Aamir have made her the queen of sealing lips. All you need to do to ensure a lip deal with her is to get yourself.

3. Aishwarya Rai- No Bollywood list is complete without her. Though, she is touching 37, still her lips are as inviting as they were 16 years back when she was crowned Miss World. And my crystal ball says that all of you male guys, at some point of time, must have fancied yourself sharing a lip-to-lip with the Goddess of Beauty.

Abhishek Bachchan dances with the girls!

It was the historic city of Udaipur that Abhishek Bachchan visited this week for National Bingo Night. Not only did he enter the stage to the popular Delhi 6 song Genda Phool, he also made a point to greet the studio audience and his viewers with a very chaste Rajasthani greeting, ‘Kesariya Baalam, padharo mharo des!’

The first contestant on this week’s show is a tourist driver Rakesh Sharma, who’ll be playing for the grand prize of a Maruti SX4. Abhishek decides to add a little more excitement to his game by giving Rakesh three bonus balls worth a lakh each. Well, it was a little surprising when Rakesh actually went on to win two of those three lucky balls!

 

The next contestant manages to surprise Abhishek with a unique present. Jitendra Verma decided to surprise him by bringing some of his female friends on the stage, who were dressed in traditional Rajasthani outfits and performed a little folk dance number for AB Jr and the audience! Abhishek joins in the pretty girls trying to pick up a step or two.

Priyanka Chopra avoiding hollywood offer!

The likes of Mallika Sherawat or Freida Pinto would jump at the prospect of a Hollywood offer, but our desi girl seems to have no time for it. Priyanka Chopra recently declined to star in the film ‘Dawn Of War’, which has now Freida instead of her.

Priyanka-Chopra73

And the reason for her refusal is that she has given dates for a Bollywood film, namely Vishal Bharadwaj’s ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’ and has already started shooting for the most challenging role of her life. In fact, she started preparing for it during the Anjaana Anjaani shooting schedule in the US.

 

As a source tells a daily, Tarsem Singh, the director of ‘Dawn Of War’, wanted Piggy Chops for his film but as her date-dairy was choc-a-block, she chose, for obvious reasons, Vishal’s film. And, since Tarsem was in a hurry to finalize the cast, he signed Freida opposite the actor Henry Cavill for his war-epic.

Priyanka is now in Kashmir, shooting for ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’.

Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori got wet together!

Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori reportedly got wet together in the rain for a sequence for director Anurag Basu’s film Kites while shooting on Las Vegas.

It goes without saying that shooting a rain sequence in any bustling American city isn’t easy. Rakesh Roshan, producer of the film, had to get required permissions and block the road for a few hours and call in the tankers to create artificial rain. On top of it, the rain sequence, we hear, was shot in the morning to capture the soothing blue light of the rising sun.

 

Since light changes in the morning in a matter of minutes, everyone was on their toes during the shoot. The onus was on Hrithik and Barbara to give a perfect take. And boy, we hear, the two sizzled together in the rain.

 

Set for release in May this year, ‘Kites’ also stars Kangana Ranaut. But it’s the chemistry between Hrithik and Barbara that’s on everyone’s tongue.

Just Say No: The 10 Worst-Sounding New TV Pilots

We love TV network pilot season because it's filled with such potential. So many shows in their infancy, casting announcements flying around, the anticipation of something new from our favorite showrunners... But while many of the announced pilots already have us praying for full-season pick-ups, there are plenty of others that we hate based on what little we know about them. Here are the potential shows that we hope don'tmake it to the fall lineup.

Speaking of overcrowded genres, this series — starring Dana Delany and Jeri Ryan — is about a neurosurgeon/medical examiner who butts heads with her bosses. Because, you know, there aren't approximately 12 million surgeons, CSIs, and MEs on TV already.

8. "Who Gets the Parents?" (ABC)
The plot of this one pains us. It's a sitcom about grown adults having a hard time adjusting to their parents' divorce. We don't care that it stars Adam Arkin and Jane Kaczmarek, it just sounds awkwardly stupid.

7. "Cutthroat" (ABC)
So take a dash of "Alias" and a heaping helping of "Weeds" and stir them in a pot and you get this mess of a show. Mia Maestro is starring as a single mother running a drug cartel out of her suburban Beverly Hills house. Please, ABC, don't pick up this show.

6. "This Little Piggy" (NBC)
Warning: Vanessa Minnillo is trying to act. Worse, she's trying to be funny in a contrived-sounding sitcom about siblings who move into the house they inherited from their parents. Did we mention the show has Vanessa Minnillo in it?

5. "Untitled Wyoming Project" (CW)
This new offering from "Gilmore Girls" guru Amy Sherman-Palladino is about a guy who moves to a ranch in Wyoming to take care of his three little sisters. Since we watched every single episode of "Gilmore," we should be optimistic, right? No. Because we also saw "The Return of Jezebel James."

4. "Defenders" (CBS)
Jerry O'Connell and Jim Belushi star as "fiery Las Vegas defense attorneys." Doesn't sound so bad... until you realize that it isn't a sitcom. Not sure we want to see (or would buy) either of these guys as hard-hitting lawyers.

3. "S--t My Dad Says" (CBS)
This one seems problematic from the get-go, given that it's based on a Twitter account, has a title that will likely need to be changed and sounds pretty formulaic. Even casting William Shatner doesn't convince us that this show should live long and prosper.

2. "Hawaii Five-O" (CBS)
The show's cast is a geek smorgasbord that includes Daniel Dae Kim ("Lost), Alex O'Loughlin ("Moonlight"), Grace Park ("Battlestar Galactica"), and James Marsters ("Buffy"). Yet we really dread hearing O'Moonlight say "Book 'em, Danno" to Scott Caan. Especially after Alex's last DOA series.

1. "Wright vs. Wrong" (ABC)
This does that annoying cutesy thing where the title makes a bad pun out of a character's name, and that's enough to make us hate it sight unseen. Debra Messing stars as a Republican pundit named Evelyn Wright (get it? get it?) whose personal life is put under the microscope because of her public image. It all just sounds like a cringeworthy show from the '80s.

Taylor Lautner, Miley Cyrus win blimp trophies, avoid slime at Kids' Choice Awards

LOS ANGELES - Team Jacob was triumphant at the Kids' Choice Awards.

"Twilight" star Taylor Lautner picked up two orange, blimp-shaped trophies at Saturday's 23rd annual shenanigan-packed Nickelodeon spectacle inside UCLA's Pauley Pavilion. Lautner snared the favourite actor honour for his "New Moon" role as hunky werewolf Jacob Black as well as the inaugural cutest couple award with his "Twilight" co-star Kristin Stewart.

Katy Perry gets slimed at Nickelodeon's 23rd Annual Kids' Choice Awards on Saturday, March 27, 2010, in Los Angeles.

"I have to admit I have always dreamt of winning one of these orange blimps," said Lautner.

The fan-favourite ceremony's host, "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" actor-comedian Kevin James, kicked off the show by performing a hip-hop dance routine as Adam Sandler serenaded him from above while dressed as an angel and fountains of green slime spontaneously gushed on the first few rows of the audience. James said more than 115 million votes were received this year.

Katy Perry, wearing a bright blue wig and skintight flowery dress, was blasted with slime when presenting the favourite movie actress trophy to Miley Cyrus. The gooey "I Kissed a Girl" singer chased the "Hannah Montana" actress around the stage, but co-presenter Jonah Hill grabbed Perry before she could embrace the 17-year-old singer-actress with a slimy hug.

"I can't see anything," complained Perry. "Why does it taste like boogers?"

Other favourites included "Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel" for movie, "Up" for animated movie, Jim Carrey for voice from an animated movie for "A Christmas Carol," "Mario Kart" for video game, "iCarly" for TV show, "American Idol" for reality show, "SpongeBob SquarePants" for cartoon, Dylan Sprouse for TV actor and Selena Gomez for TV actress.

"I'm the luckiest girl in the whole world," said Gomez.

In the music categories, the winners were Black Eyed Peas for music group, Jay-Z for male singer and Taylor Swift for female singer and song for "You Belong With Me." Favourites in the sports categories were two-time Olympic gold medallist volleyball player Misty May Treanor for female athlete and 20-year-old skateboarder Ryan Sheckler for male athlete.

"This goes right in the trophy case," Sheckler said holding up his blimp.

First lady Michelle Obama won the ceremony's "Big Help" award for her "Let's Move" campaign to cut down on childhood obesity. The honour is part of Nick's own "Millions on the Move" campaign. Over the next few months, the network will feature public service announcements to encourage kids to stay active and promote activities that help the environment.
