Why has Kangana become the sudden favourite of admakers?

Posted on 04 November 2015 by admin

So far, largely shunned by the brands, Kangana Ranaut has suddenly become a darling of the admakers.

She has been seen back-to-back in TV commercials selling almost everything under the sun, right from spectacles to jewellery.

And the star is charging a whopper.

I hear, Kangs, too, is amazed about how she made it to the ad world’s go-to-list? As they say, nothing sells like success!

What does Hema expects from daughter Esha?

Posted on 04 November 2015 by admin

Veteran actress Hema Malini says her birthday wish for daughter Esha Deol is that she start a family soon.

Esha, who turns 34 today, got married to businessman Bharat Takhtani in 2012.

“My only wish for Esha is, you have to have a baby soon. As a mother, that’s my wish,” Hema told PTI. The “Dream Girl” star said the birthday will have a special celebration but will be a low key affair.

“We will have a special celebration party for her. It won’t be a public party, just limited to family members.

It’ll be a nice private celebration,” the actress added.

Esha made her Bollywood debut opposite Aftab Shivdasani in “Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe” in 2002 and rose to popularity with the action-drama “Dhoom”.

The “Just Married” actress made a comeback of sorts with “Tell Me O Kkhuda” which was directed by Hema.

Incidentally, Hema’s debut film as a director was “Dil Aashna Hai” in 1992 which starred superstar Shah

Rukh Khan, who also celebrates his 50th birthday today.

Has Kat’s sister Isabelle given up on her Bollywood dreams?

Posted on 29 October 2015 by admin

For quite some time, there has buzz about Katrina Kaif’s sister Isabelle venturing into Bollywood.

The young girl, however, seems to have made no headway yet. In September 2014, Salman Khan had flown to Toronto for the screening of her film, ‘Dr Cabbie’.

Touted as Sallu’s first international production, the Canadian venture had Kunal Nayyar (Raj Koothrappali from ‘The Big Bang Theory’) as her co-star. Dr Cabbie did the festival rounds and was released on DVDs.

For a while, Isabelle was even seen with Kat at film events, but now she’s gone MIA.

Looks like someone has given up on her Bollywood dreams.

Lara Dutta: Bollywood opening up to married actresses

Posted on 29 October 2015 by admin

Actress Lara Dutta feels Bollywood filmmakers are now scripting a variety of roles for married heroines including those who have become mothers.

Lara, 37, married Mahesh Bhupathi and has a threeyear-old daughter, Saira.

“Today there is so much work for actresses who are married or have become mothers. Filmmakers have role for everyone today. There are no stereotypical roles,” Lara told PTI.

She would be seen next in Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Fitoor’ that stars Katrina Kaif and Aditya Roy Kapoor.

The former Miss Universe shares a good equation with the director and hence, she agreed to be part of the film.

“Gattu (Abhishek) is a good friend. My role is not in the book. Its a special role.

Most of my scenes are with Aditya and its great working with younger generation.

Lara, who made a comeback of sorts to films with actor friend Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Singh is Bliing’, is elated with the response. “I am glad the film is getting overwhelming response,” she added.

Besides, Lara will also be seen in Ekta Kapoor’s home production film ‘Azhar’, a biopic based on former Indian cricket player Mohammed Azharuddin.

“I am playing a lawyer in the film and it is too early to talk about my role… my film,” she said.

Kajol in ‘comfort zone’ with ‘Dilwale’

Posted on 29 October 2015 by admin

One of Bollywood’s most loved actresses, Kajol, who will be back on the big screen with “Dilwale”, says she was in a “comfort zone” working with Shah Rukh Khan and director Rohit Shetty, and that she chose the film for its “unpredictable” element.

Asked about what made her say ‘yes’ to the film, considering that she is often quite “choosy” when it comes to selecting her movies, Kajol said: “I wanted to do something which is unpredictable…and this film is definitely not predictable. I wanted to do something that I have not done before and I really liked the role and character in this film.”

The fact that it has Shah Rukh as a co-actor and Rohit Shetty as a director made it her “comfort zone”, she said. “I think that matters a lot. I think that made a difference.”

Kajol spoke during an exclusive media interaction with select scribes at the Ramoji Film City, where the last leg of Rohit Shetty’s directorial is being shot.

Bollywood buffs are looking forward to the film, given Kajol and Shah Rukh’s roaring onscreen chemistry, a proof of which lies in films from “Baazigar” to “Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge” to “My Name Is Khan”. Together, they have made people believe in the magic of love.

The actress says working with Shah Rukh, who is also one of her closest friends in the industry, is not only a joy, but also a learning process.

Kajol was asked to describe how she and SRK have changed as individuals from the time they worked together in 1993 released film “Baazigar” till now.

A lot, she said. “I think I have changed for better and we have become better people and better actors today. As far as Shah Rukh is concerned, he is such a technically superior actor. He is one of the best actors we have today.

“Every time I work with him, I learn more and more from him. I learn more from watching him, working with him – whether it is technically or emotionally. Working with him is pleasure, joy and a learning process,” added Kajol, who promises to steal the thunder once again with her onscreen chemistry with the actor in “Dil-wale”.

The team’s cast and crew was present here for a meet-and-greet with select media persons, who were given a chance to witness the shooting of the film at Ramoji Film City.

They also gave a sneak peek into what’s in store in “Dilwale”, which is produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, via a 20-minute video footage, which suggested that there will be dollops of romance, comedy and action in the upcoming entertainer. Also featuring Varun Dhawan and Kriti Sanon, “Dilwale” is set to release on December 18.

Posted on 29 October 2015 by admin

Actress Soha Ali Khan is super excited about her husband, actor Kunal Kemmu’s upcoming film “Guddu Ki

Gun” and hopes the film proves to be a box office success and “changes things for him”.

“Everyone knows and admits that he (Kunal Kemmu) is a great actor. But box office success is important for everybody. And I hope that this is the one that changes things for him,” the actress said here in an interview.

Kunal made his acting debut as a child artiste in the 1990s, but his first film as a lead was “Kalyug” in 2005. In a decade-long career, Kunal only has multi-starrer films like “Traffic Signal”, “Golmaal 3″ and “Go Goa Gone”.

“Guddu Ki Gun” is an adult comedy where Kunal plays a Bihari salesman Guddu, who is a playboy and his manhood is, strangely, gold.

Soha calls it a “family film”.

“I’m excited for the film as you know the concept of this film is so unique. I hope it delivers. People want to see the film… believe it or not but it is a family film,” she added.

Directed by Shantanu Ray Chhibber and Sheershak Anand , “Guddu Ki Gun ” also stars debutante Payel Sarkar. The film is set to release October 30.
