Yes you heard it right! Alia is Shahid’s fan

Posted on 23 July 2014 by admin

Alia Bhatt, who has con­firmed she has signed Vi­kas Bahl’s “Shaandar” for a role with Shahid Kapoor, says she’s a fan of the actor, whom she first fell in love with when she was all of 11.

“I’m a huge Shahid Ka­poor fan. I must have been 11 years old when I went to see Shahid in ‘Ishq Vishk’ at Gaiety-Galaxy (in Mumbai). I’ve been a fan since then. He is a fabulous actor and from what I hear, a very sup­portive co-star,” Alia said.

Shahid is a generation removed from most of the co-stars Alia has worked with so far.

Gently, she corrects that by saying: “You forget I’ve done ‘Highway’ with Ran­deep Hooda. But yes, that apart, I’ve so far worked with actors my own age. So there was a natural comfort level with them.

“But it’s not like Shahid is any different from Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor or Sidharth Malhotra. He is a very chilled-out guy. He has been around for so many years. I am sure he’s a thor­ough professional. And I am really looking forward to working with him.”

The actress, who was recently seen in “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania”, ad­mits there is plenty on the plate. But she isn’t allowed to speak about them all as yet. She is, however, excited about “Shaandar”.

“I’m very excited. I loved his (Vikas Bahl’s) ‘Queen’. And I am really looking forward to what he does in the film with me,” said the “Highway” actress.

“Shaandar” is to be shot in an undisclosed part of England later this year. Bahl’s last film, the much-lauded “Queen” had been shot in Paris, one of Alia’s favourite cities where she got a chance to holiday re­cently.

“I am very excited about this film. It’s something I haven’t done so far. I want to work with every major ac­tor,” she said.

ACTRESS Jacque­line Fernandez, who is busy pro­moting her much-awaited film “Kick” has praised her co-star Salman Khan’s former ladylove Katrina Kaif for working hard to be where she’s today.

“For five years I have been here (in Hindi film­dom) and I have only been working hard,” said the Sri Lankan beauty.

The actress is open to do special dance numbers in films.

Ileana D’Cruz hopes ‘Happy Ending’ will be a hit

Posted on 23 July 2014 by admin

After the success of her last film ‘Main Tera Hero’, actress Ileana D’Cruz hopes that her next venture opposite Saif Ali Khan and Govinda titled ‘Happy Ending’ is appreciated by the au­dience.

The romantic comedy has been directed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK. The film also features Ranvir Shorey, Kalki Koechlin and will see Preity Zin­ta and, Kareena Kapoor Khan in cameo roles. “The shooting of ‘Happy Ending’ is almost over. It is a great film. I had a great time shooting it. I hope that the film does as good as we expect it to do,” Ileana said.

The 25-year-old actress walked the ramp at the India Couture week last night for designer Sulakshana Monga, who showcased a collection inspired by the bygone times of the British Empire and the Maharajas.

Ileana was dressed in a neon-pink saree teamed with silver-toned blouse and she said that she was apprehensive to don such bright colours on the ramp and needed a lot of persuasion from the designer to do so.

“This neon pink is not my co­lour. I was a little nervous about this outfit but Sulakshana con­vinced me and I finally agreed. I think it turned out pretty well considering the loud cheers that welcomed me on the ramp,” the ‘Barfi’ actress said.

The collection, titled ‘Rede­fining Opulence’, boasted of flo­ral prints on semi textured fabrics, all based in rich shades of silver, gold, ruby, pink and sapphire.

Salman Khan asks: Why so much negativity about Nargis?

Posted on 23 July 2014 by admin

Salman Khan, known for promoting new breed of actors, has given Nargis Fakhiri a song opportunity in his “Kick” and feels that mindset about “pretty and outstand­ing dancer” is baseless.

“Nargis has done a song in the film, which is outstandingly great. I really like her, her energy is great, and I think she will be ben­efited a lot with the song,” said Salman.

“I don’t know why there was so much negativity about Nargis earlier. I think she is a very pretty girl, an outstanding dancer and a lovely person to work with. She has got a great sense of humour,” he added.

The directorial debut of Sajid Nadiadwala, “Kick” is set for July 25 release and the superstar will be seen ro­mancing Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez in the action drama.

Drawing a comparison between Nargis and his on-screen leading lady Jacque­line, Salman pointed out the similarities in them.

“Both are very spontane­ous and chilled out… they are like the girls-next-door. Jacqueline has got this film only because of her hard work and everyone deserves a second chance. Jacqueline was the best choice. We are grateful that she did the film.”

`Ek Villain` hits a jackpot, Shraddha relieved

Posted on 18 July 2014 by admin

 “Ek Villain” success soared up and crossed Rs.100 crore mark at the box office and brought a sigh of relief to the film’s leading lady Shraddha Kapoor.

Released June 27, “EK Villain”, which came out of producer Ekta Kapoor’s stable, crossed Rs.100 crore mark at the box office. If people liked Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha as the lead pair, they equally appreciated Riteish Deshmukh in his villainous avatar.

“As an actress, it’s extremely relieving to receive positive response from the audience,” Shraddha, whose last film “Aashiqui 2” was a blockbuster too, told IANS. “The film has done really well at the box office, which gives you a lot of confidence to do more films. I have been celebrating the success of the film from day one when it opened well at the box office. I am feeling extremely relieved,” she added.

Interestingly, director Mohit Suri helmed both `EK Villain` and `Aashiqui 2`. “I am fortunate enough to have got an opportunity to work with Mohit. Mohit is a dear friend and he is a gem of a person. It’s always a pleasure to work with him because he has a clarity on whatever he is doing,” said the actress.

The film ‘Roy’ may get delayed again as lead actor Ranbir Kapoor has apparently given his bulk dates to another project.

The second schedule of Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Roy is slated to start around August 10. But it may be pointed out that the actor has just started shooting for Imtiaz Ali’s up-coming film, Tamasha, opposite Deepika Padukone. Earlier on, the second and the final schedules of Roy were to be shot in South Africa, but director Vikramjit Singh chose to shoot in Malaysia instead, as he thought that the locales there were better suited the script.

According to sources, Ranbir has already given bulk dates to Imtiaz and they will finish Tamasha’s first schedule in a little over a month’s time; this, in turn, may clash with his dates for Roy.

Bhushan Kumar of T-Series, that’s producing Roy, says, `We are starting the film’s next schedule from August 10 and Ranbir will join us from August 25, so there’s no clash.`

However, sources says that Ranbir is required to shoot for at least 40-45 days as part of Roy’s second and final schedules. The makers are looking at an early next year release, which is why they apparently want to finish shooting by September and start post production soon after.

Another source confirms the story. `Ranbir will be back in India in a month, but he will get busy with another project (Jagga Jasoos) and will thus not be able to shoot for Roy before the first week of September,` says the source.

This is not the first time that shooting for Roy has been delayed. Earlier, both Ranbir Kapoor and Jacqueline Fernandez have had date problems, thus postponing the film’s schedule.

Is Richa Afraid of Sunny? Refused third film opposite her

Posted on 18 July 2014 by admin

After declining Ragini MMS 2” and “Tina and Lolo”, Richa Chadha has now turned down “Mastizaade”. Interestingly, all movies feature Indo-Canadian adult film star and Bollywood actress Sunny Leone, but Richa says “it’s a mere co-incidence”.

“Mastizaade” is a sex comedy by Milap Zaveri.

“My team and I felt that I shouldn’t be a part of a sex comedy at this point in time. I have all the respect for Sunny and the fact that this is the third project I have had to decline with Sunny in the star cast is just a mere co-incidence,”

Richa told IANS. Richa, who has earned critical acclaim by starring in unique roles in movies like “Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye” and “Gangs Of Wasseypur”, is now gearing up for the release of five of her films.

It’s not that she desired to stick to her serious image alone. It recently emerged that the actress wishes to be part of Hindi movies’ song and dance routines too.

Whoa! Sunny’s ‘Pink lips’ attracts 1 million YouTube views

Posted on 09 July 2014 by admin

BOLLYWOOD ‘Baby Doll’ Sunny Leone- starrer song “Pink lips” is turning out to be a chartbuster, and her fluid moves in the number have already managed to attract over one million views for the video on YouTube.

The song’s video was uploaded on the online platform July 2. It features Sunny grooving to the beats of the song, composed by Meet Brothers and choreographed by Uma-Gaiti.

The choreographers were under pressure to deliver something bigger and better than “Baby doll”, and made sure Sunny gave her best shot to the new song, which is a promotional track for the movie “Hate story 2”. But they’re excited with the response.

“It’s been an absolute pleasure to put ‘Pink lips’ together. We choreographed ‘Baby doll’ with Sunny, so with ‘Pink lips’, the process got easier. We had a better tuning this time. ‘Pink lips’ was a huge challenge as it was being pitted against ‘Baby doll’,” the duo said in a statement.

“Hate Story 2” will release July 18.

Posted on 09 July 2014 by admin

Actress Nargis Fakhri suffers injuries while rehearsing for her special song in Kick. Despite of injuries, she continued the rehearsals. Nargis has just completed shooting her special song with Salman Khan for Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kick. The song, already making waves before its release, has been composed by Yo Yo Honey Singh especially for Bhai and Sajid.

Prior to her shoot, Nargis underwent rigorous sessions of rehearsals with choreographer Ahmed Khan and his team. Her dancing abilities and her dedication earned her waah-waahs from the troupe and Ahmed, but also resulted in injuries due to the intensity and strenuousness of the rehearsals.

An insider source shares, `Nargis is believed to have suffered a ruptured knee ligament and a torn hamstring during one of the rehearsals. The production team immediately called for a doctor on-site. She rested briefly, before continuing rehearsals. As it turns out, these kind of injuries don’t heal quickly. To make sure her injury didn’t affect her dancing for the shoot, she visited her physiotherapist everyday post rehearsals and worked towards healing. Ahmed’s troupe was extremely glad to see her commitment to not just the craft but also to hardwork.

Salman becomes singer for ‘Kick’

Posted on 09 July 2014 by admin

During a recent interaction, Salman Khan, who was in a jovial mood, spoke about singing all songs for his upcoming film, Kick. It turns out that the actor is contemplating the idea of doing so and including them in the film’s music album.

The actor said, `I am going to sing a slow romantic number. And it’s just not one song that I have sung, it’s two to three songs and I may sing more. This slow number is not easy to sing, but I will try it anyway. If I get this song right, then I can sing many more songs for other films as well.”

He added that given the fact that a Bollywood film has five to six songs on average, `One should sing at least one song.` He also pointed out that he has picked up this talent from his father. `I paint because my mother does and I have got this voice from my father. Wajid (of the music director duo, Sajid-Wajid) was a big help to me when I sang the songs; he’d sing one line and then I would repeat it. In any case, I sit in for the music sittings of all my films,` he said, adding that Meet Brothers and Sajid-Wajid have worked on the song, Hangover.

The actor counts old Hindi songs such as Door kaheen jab din dhal jaye, Ramayya vastavaiyya and Yamla pagla deewana, among his favourites. `I like them along with retro and western music, including rap that I cannot understand a word of, ` he said.
