As the D day is approaching, audience and media getting anxious. There were websites and part of media who went ahead and published the reviews of JTHJ when even the print was not out of the lab. We checked with studio and our sources about authenticity of reviews which appeared in one of the leading film rating website. But all were just plain rumors.

We checked with studio and our sources about authenticity of reviews which appeared in one of the leading film rating website. But all were just plain rumors.

With the idiots at the helm of affair of the ‘C’ grade looking khiladi 786 trying to make it look like the biggest franchise of bollywood (ya with most of them flops and just 2 clean hits its sure got to be the biggest franchise!) what is amusing is the white lie that is the khiladi series itself. actually there is no such thing as the khiladi series or franchise.
how does a film become a sequel of another. by having a common character, an extended story or at least (as akshay’s dumb fans wud agree wholeheartedly) at least by having a common hero (thats the only basis they think that makes up the khiladi series.) apart from that all khiladi films have nothing in common.
but the fact is that even the hero in all khiladi films is not common. khel khiladi ka had dharmendra and dhruv, khatron ke khiladi had dharmendra, sanjay dutt and chunke pandey the hero of the 1st khiladi was e billimoria in 1945, the lead in second khiladi was ashok kumar in 1950, and the 1968 khiladi had fearless nadia as the main lead. shatranj ke khiladi 1977 starred the great sanjeev kumar and saeed jaffery. come to think of it even small time comedian mohan choti of ysteryears played the hero in ‘ek khiladi baawan pattey’.
akshay kumar starred in khiladi (1992) and some more disparate films with the word khiladi thrown in without any common story line or character with just two of them hits (sabse bada khiladi and khiladiyon ka khiladi) and rest all flops. but so did fardeen khan (ek khiladi ek haseena) and some dubbed films like khiladi no 1 and ek anari do khiladi.

There is always a sense of heightened expectation ahead of an India-Australia series. The seven-match One-Day International (ODI) series in 2009 was no different. The first four matches lived up to expectations of a keenly-contested series, with Australia going on to win at Vadodara and Mohali, and India getting the better of their opponents at Nagpur and Delhi. The stage was perfect when the teams arrived at Hyderabad for the fifth match of the series.
Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi Stadium was never a happy-hunting ground for the home team. In fact, India had earlier faced Australia at the same venue a couple of years ago in 2007, with the visitors clinching an impressive 47-run victory. Nevertheless, the Indians looked far more formidable than their opponents this time around, at least on paper. There was every chance India would break the jinx.
Sachin Tendulkar was just nine short of 17,000 ODI runs. That and the 2-2 scoreline between two quality teams ensured that there was a huge demand for tickets.
Australians post a mammoth total Continue reading
Shahrukh, who allegedly slapped director Shirish Kunder during a party and was involved in a brawl with the policemen at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai during an IPL match, said during an interview at ThinkFest conclave that concluded in Goa yesterday, “I am not going through midlife crisis. I am going through Delhi phases.” Shahrukh also confessed that he went to jail once for threatening a journalist.
The actor also remembered how during his initial days in Mumbai when he was shooting for Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na, he landed in trouble for threatening a journalist over an article that linked him to an actress. “I went to the house of that journalist and threatened him,” Shahrukh said, adding that “next day this act of mine landed me in jail. I was allowed to make only one phone call from the police station. Instead of making a call to my wife or my lawyer, I called the same journalist and threatened him again.” He termed his act as “foolishness.”
Shahrukh ruled out that he was going through a midlife crisis and termed some instances of his arrogance as being a typical “Delhi boy.” “I am a Delhi boy…”
“Shahrukh also said that till some time back, his daughter used to think that he was Aamir Khan. “Four years back, my daughter used to think that I am Aamir Khan and for my son I am always a hero,” the superstar said. On the occasion, Shahrukh read out some excerpts from his autobiography, to which he is giving final touches. It sketches his life from childhood to stardom. Continue reading
Melody queen Lata Mangeshkar had an affair with Bhupen Hazarika. His estranged wife Priyamvada Patel Hazarika told a local TV channel ahead of the Assamese balladeer’s first death anniversary on November 5.
“Lata started a big affair with him,” the octogenarian Priyamvada told DY365 in an interview aired on Saturday prime time.
Hinting that Lata was one of the reasons why she left the balladeer, Priyamvada said Bhupen and Lata shared one of the three bedrooms in their Tollygunje apartment whenever she came to Kolkata.
On one occasion, music director duo Kalyanji-Anandji told her in Gujarati that it was futile to stay up late expecting Bhupen to return to her bedroom.
“Lata was crazy after him, and he told me Priyam in India if a musician wants to come up, his songs have to be sung by Lata Mangeshkar. I asked why should you be in the room with her the whole night, he said ketiyaba koribo laage (sometimes you have to do it),” the Ottawa-based Priyamvada said. Continue reading
He is one of India’s biggest superstars but Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan says it is lonely at the top and he is constantly fighting with the “feeling of emptiness.” “There is something wrong in me. I sense it. I feel it but I don’t know what it is,” Shah Rukh said during the ThinkFest conclave, an annual event, in Goa.
“I have a beautiful family. I have a few friends with whom I spend lot of time. I don’t want to die like my father. I don’t want to be unknown. I would like to be just successful. Believe me it is lonely at the top.”
Shah Rukh, who turned 47 recently, is in the process of giving final touches to his autobiography. “Somehow there is this feeling of emptiness. I have this restlessness, strangeness, which I fill up with my acting.”
The actor, who lost his father at the age of 15, recalled how his family was always short of money in his childhood. “Once, my father took me to show a cinema in Delhi. He did not have enough money. We sat near Kamati auditorium and he told me that it is wonderful to see the vehicles passing. When I want to take my son out for a movie I should be able to show him the movie and not the cars,” Shah Rukh said. Continue reading
