WOW! Katrina Kaif hires an agent in Hollywood?

Posted on 13 October 2017 by admin

It was considered that Indian actors can’t shine or make a mark in Hollywood. Naseeruddin Shah, Kabir Bedi, Mallika Sherawat, Anil Kapoor, Amrish Puri, Tabu, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Anupam Kher etc tried their luck in Hollywood but couldn’t become popular. On the other hand, Om Puri did get few roles while Irrfan Khan left a mark in some significant Hollywood flicks.

But it was Priyanka Chopra who changed the rules of the game. She began by launching her international singles and soon enough she bagged a TV show ‘Quantico’. The TV series has got three seasons till now and has made Priyanka a household name globally. She also had a key role in the Hollywood film Baywatch and is also working in two more films. On the other hand, Deepika Padukone also debuted in Hollywood with the action flick xXx: Return Of Xander Cage. The film flopped but Deepika was noticed on a worldwide level and her chemistry with Vin Diesel was much talked about.

Inspired by Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone’s success, it seems that now Katrina Kaif has also developed Hollywood ambitions. As per reports, she has recently hired an agent in USA who has been instructed to find the actress some big films in the West. Looking at the way Deepika and Priyanka are making waves, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Katrina wants some of that western cake for herself as well. Moreover, she also has an advantage as her looks are quite international and she can slip into a character of any nationality. Her accented English will also prove beneficial.

In an earlier interview, the actor had admitted that he was dating someone. “I am dating, yes. But we are not… As of now, there is still a long way to go,” he had said, adding that he still felt “single”.

Post break-up, Arbaaz and Malaika maintained a cordial relationship. They spotted at parties together, have fun together, spend time with their son jointly.

“Kareena and I have decided to send him to a boarding school” – Saif Ali Khan on son Taimur

Posted on 13 October 2017 by admin

Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s li’l baby Taimur Ali Khan is already quite a star and not just the paparazzi but all of us love this royal prince. He leaves us charmed with his flushed pink cheeks and gorgeous big blue eyes each time we catch a glimpse of him. His fan following is no less than his mama Bebo and daddy Saif Ali Khan. I mean like seriously those gazillion fan pages of him on social media are a proof of the same. It takes seconds for any of his pictures to go viral on the internet and he makes us go aww! Earlier, we’ve heard daddy Saif talking about the attention baby Taimur gets and has even shown his worry about it as he wants him to have a normal upbringing like his other children, Sara and Ibrahim.

Saif in his latest interview revealed that Bebo and he have decided to send Taimur away to a boarding school to keep him away from all the limelight and attention. Saif shared, “He has innocence in his eyes, there is nothing pretentious, but yes I am worried about him. Kareena and I have already discussed the stardom he already has around him and we have decided to send him to a nice boarding school in England. It will hopefully do the trick it has done for everybody in the family. Kareena is going to be a very good mother. She will not be impressed if he is spoilt.”

Looks like #Saifeena are deciding to give baby Taimur a more private and sheltered life. Whatever said and done we love Taimur.

Unhappy with costumes, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan cancels Fanney Khan’s shoot

Posted on 13 October 2017 by admin

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is considered to be the most beautiful women in the world and she ensures that she constantly lives up to that image. It’s rare to find her in the list of ‘worst dressed celebs’ or she making a faux pas in an event. Her airport looks are also spot on. Even in films, she looks her stunning best. In her last film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil she rocked the show and gave tough competition to lead actress Anushka Sharma despite having a supporting role.

Hence, a lot is expected from Aishwarya Rai Bachchan from her upcoming film Fanney Khan which recently went on floors. The actress has taken her role quite seriously and so much so that, she called off the shoot at the last minute! The reason: she was not happy with the costumes designed by ace designer Manish Malhotra.

Co-producer Prernaa Arora confirmed that the shoot has indeed been pushed ahead due to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s dissatisfaction. She added that costumes play a big role in Fanney Khan as she portrays the role of a diva. She is creatively involved and will not accept anything that is not upto the mark. The shoot therefore was postponed.

Reportedly, the shoot will now begin only post-Diwali. This is because Aishwarya Rai Bachchan wants to celebrate Karwa Chauth on Sunday October 8 and then bring in father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan’s 75th birthday with the whole family in Maldives on October 11. Manish Malhotra will use this time to rework the costumes and make them edgier and highly-stylised as per the requirements of the character.

Anil Kapoor, as per reports, has wrapped up most of his portions for Fanney Khan. The film also stars Rajkummar Rao who was supposed to shoot with Aishwarya. He, too, will have to wait until Diwali to share screen space with Aishwarya.

Fanney Khan marks the directorial debut of Atul Manjrekar and is the official remake of acclaimed Dutch film Everybody’s Famous. It is co-produced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.

Kangana Ranaut’s lawyer responds to Pancholis’ legal notice

Posted on 06 October 2017 by admin

After Aditya Pancholi and Zarina Wahab sent a legal notice to Kangana Ranaut for the alleged defamatory remarks made by her on a chat show, Kangana Ranaut’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui has responded to the notice.

Not divulging too many details, he confirmed that they have received the notice and responding to it. “The defamation notice received by the advocate representing Mr. Aditya Pancholi and Ms. Zarina Wahab has been duly replied to. My client who has been a victim of crime has largely spoken about her personal experiences, which were already reported on various media platforms since the year 2007. Besides the laws of the land do not give any added advantage to any male person to silence any (victim) woman under the threat of filing defamation proceedings against her,” he said.

For the uninitiated, Kangana Ranaut talked about her abusive relationship with Aditya Pancholi on a television show ‘Aap Ki Adaalat’ which didn’t go down well with Pancholis who took this legal action against Kangana Ranaut.

However, the entire controversy started in 2016 after Kangana Ranaut referred to Hrithik Roshan as ‘silly ex’.  After a series of legal notices and blame-games, the case did not reach a conclusion but many others like the Pancholis and the Sumans [Adhyayan and Shekhar] had made several statements about Kangana Ranaut and her past.

Posted on 30 September 2017 by admin

In January this year, Sanjay Leela Bhansali was attacked in Jaipur when he was shooting for his grand period film Padmavati.
