IIFA Toronto Workshop To Be Hosted By Saif Ali Khan!
Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan is set to host IIFA Rocks, a music and fashion event on the second night of the Videocon d2h IIFA Weekend. A ‘Friend of IIFA’, Saif has performed on the IIFA stage in Dubai, Yorkshire and in Colombo. Having walked several IIFA Green Carpets, the nawab of style has always been dressed to kill, making him a perfect fit as anchor for the fashion event. The actor, also known for his love of music and unfailing charm, will dazzle as IIFA celebrates great music and high fashion at the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto before a 7,500 capacity crowd.
Yes, Salim Khan has bought the distribution rights of ‘Ready’ for the C.P.C.I. Rajasthan territories from the worldwide distributor, Ponty Chadha, for a formidable sum of Rs. 6.21 crore (Rs. 62.1 million). And, instead of buying the rights of his son’s film at a concessional rate, Salim Khan went ahead and told Ponty that he would pay him Rs. 5 lakh more than what Ponty would have made by selling the rights to someone else.
In fact, Salim Khan was so particular about the said payment that even before he paid the signing amount of Rs. 101 to Ponty, he made sure that the total sum of Rs. 6.21 crore was electronically transferred to Ponty Chadha’s bank account!
Ponty Chadha had bought the worldwide distribution rights of ‘Ready’ for Rs. 55 crore.
Ranbir Kapoor’s Rockstar and Imran Khan’s Mere Brother Ki Dulhan were going to release on 9th September together. Now Shahid Kapoor’s Mausam has also shifted from its original release date of July 22 and will now release on 9th September too.
Apparently, Pankaj Kapoor needs another month for Mausam’s post-production. Or maybe they just wanted to avoid the clash with Singham. Whatever the reason, this has to be the most idiotic decision taken by any film maker ever. All three films are romance-based and all three actors are heartthrobs. All of them will eat into each other’s business and how!
As he talks about his hits and misses, Akshay Kumar says he’s all set to get back to action movies, doing what he loves most – dishum, dishum
In the post-” Dabangg” months, every actor worth his six pack is turning to action. The sky-diving, the kicks, the punches and the dialogue-baazi are ruling the big screen. Akshay Kumar who’d turned his back on the action genre, now wants to reclaim his crown. And the timing couldn’t be better. The audiences are lapping up the dhishum dhishum. He talks about his faults, films and future plans. Read on…
You’re working with newer lot of filmmakers, like Prabhu Deva and Dibakar Banerjee. Getting out of your comfort zone?
You can say that. It is a deliberate decision to work with directors with a different sensibility. I realized that I was doing the same kind of films. That happens to an actor without realising. A certain kind of film works, and you think this is what the audience likes, or wants, and you keep following that pattern. Especially, when you get success in that genre. And then you settle into a comfort zone. I started enjoying doing comedy films. The same thing had happened when I was just doing action films. Now I want to get out of my comfort zone, and that is why I have signed up with directors I haven’t worked with before.
Until last year, you were said to be the highest paid actor. Are you making exceptions now?
I think every actor does that. When I began as an actor, I was very clear that I was in it for money and fame. Those were the driving factors. But that changes after you reach a certain level. For me, things changed after “Sangharsh”. I really loved the part, and I accepted it. It hasn’t been about money for a long time. It’s not about money anymore. Continue reading
Movies get promoted usually… But when it comes to a big-budgeted movie like ‘Ra.One’ one can expect the promotional campaigns to be as alluring as the big picture itself.
It’s reported that for his magnum opus venture ‘Ra.One’, Shah Rukh Khan has planned its promotion in a very big, elaborate way, such that the movie will leave a lifetime impression.
For promoting the film in unique way, King Khan has decided to start the longest fan mail, as an attempt to enter the prestigious Limca Book Of Records. As a part of this promotional activity, the star is said to release Ra.One’s promos across five cities in India – for which SRK will visit five cities every month and in turn he will span 25 cities in five months.

When Barcelona captain Carles Puyol passed on the captain’s arm band to defender Eric Abidal so that the latter could lift the Champions League trophy, it made for one of the most poignant moments on a sports field.
In March, Abidal had undergone surgery for a liver tumour and every football fan understood that Puyol’s gesture was as much about bonding as about humility.
In recent times, Indian sports lovers would also recall a similar instance when the captain let his teammate corner the limelight. After India’s 2011 World Cup victory, captain MS Dhoni preferred to take the back seat as the team went around the ground with Sachin Tendulkar – for whom it was perhaps the last Cup – on their shoulders.

The advance of Ready opened at single screens and results were fantastic. All over India, it was a unanimous verdict from single screen exhibitors.
The advance at single screens matched that of Dabangg and even bettered it at places. There is no doubt that the single screen opening on Friday is going to be humungous. It will be either best or second best ever. The results at multiplexes will tell if the right buzz and hype has been created for the film.
As Ready is Salman’s first release after Dabangg it will become compared to Dabangg even though Dabangg smashed all opening records by a distance.
Most in the trade seem to feel it will not have an opening weekend like Dabangg as the feeling is that promos are not as strong as Dabanng’s. But Salman is there and two hit songs, the Friday could come up to match Dabangg. If the film has good content then the Dabangg weekend is definitely under threat. Continue reading
How you doing??This is the first post i am writing.This is about the Music release of DB.
The Music of Delhi Belly is out and i got a chance to grab it’s cd today.
Well there are in all 10 songs in it, my personal fav. is i hate you (like i love you)
The songs in the album are quite unusual and it take 2 to 3 hearing to get it’s feel.
Lyrics of all the songs are simple and funny.i didn’t get that why in some songs they tried to mimic the old hindi song singing style for example:saigal blues. May be songs are sung according to the situations in the movie.
swetty tera pyar is fast and catchy…..but music reminds me of some other hindi song which i don’t recollect it now.
nakadwale disco and bose dk both of which are used in trailers are good and can be liked in first hearing. Continue reading
