  • Pappu can fight saala

    Pappu can fight saala Harneet Singh Posted online: Thursday, July 31, 2008 at 1512 hrs IST Bollywood scribes are already terming the recent spat between superstars Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan as the ‘story of the year.’ For the uninitiated (though with 24X7 electronic media carpet-bombing, they’re a rarity), it all happened at Katrina Kaif’s birthday bash in a suburban Mumbai hotspot. Apparently banter between the two Khans turned ugly when professional comparisons regarding their television shows cropped up — the numbers of SRK’s Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hain have not met expectations, while Salman’s 10 Ka Dum has got a favourable response. Tabloids tell us that the heated discussion took a turn for the worse when SRK allegedly made an inappropriate

  • Depp to be next Batman villain?

    Would be a great choice IMO… Rediff Actor Johnny Depp [Images] is being tipped to be the next Batman villain, taking on the role of The Riddler.

Now, the National Enquirer reveals that bosses want Depp in the next instalment, as well as Philip Seymour Hoffman who they think will be perfect for the role of another of the Caped Crusader’s arch-foes, the Penguin, reports Contactmusic.

  • This Diwali will be Akshay’s – CCTC will enjoy solo release

    Link Those who have monitored Bollywood proceedings over the last few years will recall that the first major instance of a King Khan and Khiladi Kumar starrer releasing together was back in 2004. It was Yash Chopra’s VEER ZAARA against Subhash Ghai’s Abbas-Mustan directed, AITRAAZ. While VEER ZARA went on to become a super-hit, netting well over 40 crores from India, AITRAAZ managed an above average status with around 18-19 crores. The clash was repeated two years later, but this time around Shah Rukh Khan Khan’s DON trounced the Salman-Akshay starrer JAAN-E-MANN comprehensively. On both the mentioned occasions it was the festive Eid-Diwali phase. With the prospects of SRK’s BILLOO BARBER and Akshay Kumar’s CHANDNI CHOWK TO CHINA TOWN (CCTCT), releasing in close proximity, the

  • Katrina loved donning saris in Singh Is Kinng

    Link Katrina Kaif, Bollywood’s new style icon who is usually seen in western clothes, has shot an entire song in saris for Singh Is Kinng. The actress says she loved the experience. “Director Anees Bazmi was very clear that he wanted me to have an Indian look for the song. And what could have made me look more Indian than a sari? I thoroughly loved it. A sari makes a woman look so graceful and feminine,” Katrina said in a statement. “Also, in the song Akshay imagines us dancing in the mysterious locales of Egypt,” she added.

  • “I’m frightened…anything can happen to me” – Tanushree Dutta

    Link By Subhash K. Jha, July 31, 2008 – 11:50 IST Tanushree Dutta, in the news recently for her pow-wow with Nana Patekar is afraid to admit that she is…afraid! “I’m afraid that I’m afraid,” she says with a nervous laugh. “That’s why I’ve been talking against Nana Patekar and Rakhi Sawant long after she took over the item song from me with him. I feel upset and frightened….The MNS workers were put on the job to harass me after I dared to take on Nana for his behaviour.” I tell her it’s in bad taste to carry on her tirade against a senior artiste, no matter what the provocation. Tanushree agrees. “Maybe I should’ve stopped talking about it. But I did so only out of

  • GB reviews Tahalka

    As always a superb review by GreatBong. While many experts have analyzed the phallic symbolism inherent in the name “Dong” ( Dong is frequently shown running his fingers rapidly on the strings of a sitar with lusty expressions while semi-clad women dance about him), most film critics agree that the more important subtext here is definitely political. That is Dong is nothing but a surrogate for one-time Chinese supremo “Deng” Xaoping. Indeed their hypothesis is supported by the voice-over that says, in a passage that is both politically charged and subtly erotic: Yeh khoobsoorat wadi, yeh baraf se dhaake pahaar, sarhad hain us mulk ki jisse duniyawaale Hindustan ke naam se jaante hain. Aur inke us paar se shuru hoti hain un mulkon ki sahradein

  • Sarkar Raj – My Review

    Wow…I haven’t seen a bollywood movie since like 2 months. I was really lucky to catch this one. When Ramu first announced that he was going to do a sequel to Sarkar…I was ok with that. Then when he announced that Ash was going to be part of it…I was like ok why not someone else, why her, just cause shes Abhi’s wife and Amitabh’s bahu. When the trailers came out…I wasn’t too excited…since it just reminded me of Sarkar. I even read the premises and everything looked very dull and boring in my view. Well, I gave it a chance even though I lost hope in Ramu. It actually turned out to be slightly better than the first. That’s what I feel. Many might

  • Economic Times – Sarkar Raj is a Failure

    ET MUMBAI: After the failure of Sarkar Raj and Contract (we’re not even bringing up Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag), Ramu has devised a new way to promote his next film, Phoonk. This hardcore horror flick is set to release next month. And Ramu claims that Phoonk is the scariest of all his horror films. So much so that now Ramu and Azam Khan, his producer, have, rather immodestly, announced a prize money of Rs 5 lakh for anyone who can dare to see the film all alone in the theatre. Darna strictly mana hai. Azam Khan says, “We’re confident that the film is so scary that it will be extremely difficult to watch it all alone in a theatre. We will be running a

  • The Influentials: People who impact Mumbai

    They set the agenda: from policy to palate, business to cinema, and medicine to sports. They are the people who impact Mumbai. Into the third year of its running, DNA’s annual list of Influentials has become the touchstone of the city’s progress. Like last year, there are surprises this time too.

  • Business Talk With Taran Adarsh:’Mission’ misfires, ‘Honey’ loony

    A prominent distributor called to say that the business of the two new releases — MISSION ISTAANBUL and MONEY HAI TOH HONEY HAI — had hit rock-bottom due to bomb blasts and the scare + heavy rains lashing various parts of the country, including Mumbai [it has been pouring incessantly since last few days]. There’s no denying that film business takes a severe beating when natural and unnatural calamities strike. Entertainment is never the first priority under those circumstances. Actually, it’s the last thing on your mind. But MISSION ISTAANBUL and MONEY HAI TOH HONEY HAI would’ve lost the battle even otherwise. Let’s talk of MISSION ISTAANBUL first! The general feeling within the industry is that action films fetch a better start than love stories
