Single awareness day can sometimes leave you sitting at home, wishing, wanting and waiting for lovers of the past. Why must we think of the lads and lassies who broke our hearts every February 14, why not dream about the people who will never let us down, celebrities! Think about it they are the perfect solution to this problem of Valentines Day. When you miss them you can just turn on a movie, they will always be there for you, and you can conveniently forget they are married, taken, or prefer the same sex.Â Remember your first love? Mine was Aamir Khan, who was yours? When I landed in Mumbai many years ago my uncle asked me what I wanted to do my first day, are you hungry? Jet lagging? Icecream chaiye beti?Â I said no to all of these after all I was a first grader on a mission. I hadÂ a date with Aamir Khan he just didn’t know it yet….

Talking to the lovely Sonam Kapoor about love, life, and of course Delhi-6!
1)Â Â Â Tell me a little about Delhi-6 from your eyes.

Check out the new compilation of the best of the best by non other than the talented Mr. A.R. Rahman. Everything you could have possibly asked for musically for the past few years can be found here. The album is complete with songs from Swades, Jodhaa Akbar, Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na, Delhi-6 and much more!
Out of everyone in the industry I must say this musical genius deserves not only world recognition but universal! Can you imagine Dil Se without Chaiya Chaiya? Or what about Taal without Taal Se Taal? I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve described a movie saying “Eh, it was ok, but I LOVED the songs”
I want John Abraham on my birthday, actually I want him for Christmas, breakfast and dinner! Bipasha can have him for lunch I suppose =) Well this year I did get to talk to him on my birthday which made turning 26 a lot cooler considering that I can already vote, buy a drink, and rent a car. Maybe 26 is the new 16. Whatever it is, if it lands you an interview with this hottie, I’ll take two!
Ringâ€¦Ringâ€¦. Continue reading
The boys of B-wood not only have big muscles, big pay checks, and big fan following, they have even bigger hearts! As we are in the midst of award season I think it’s time to give a shout out to some of the boys that are changing the face of India with their generosity, compassion, and warmth.
We can probably all guess who my personal favorite is. Role model to millions John Abraham has been known to open his heart to many different causes. A few that are particularly close to his heart are PETA, Make a Wish, and his own foundation known as Johns Brigade India’s very own chapter of Habitat for Humanity. Something that really touched me was I found out he spent his birthday last year at the Happy Home and School for the Blind in Worli. The 200 kids presented him with a birthday card written in Braille and sang happy birthday to him. As his birthday gift he gave each and everyone a pair of specially designed Fast Track sunglasses for the visually impaired. This past summer he was even given an award for being Eco-Warrior by the Vice President of India for the number of sociological and ecological he puts his time and efforts into. Continue reading
Delhi 6 one of the most awaited films of the year is set to release February 20, 2009. Starring the lovely Sonam Kapoor who in my opinion is one of the most under rated actresses in Bollywood today. I can’t wait to see Sonam star opposite Abhishek Bachchan in this romantic film about a boy named Roshan, born in America who finds himself in India due to an ill grandmother. Â During his time in India he finds pretty Sonam who steals his heart and that begins their very own pyar ki kahani setting place in the most romantic place in the world, the motherland.
The New Year usually brings in the need for a new body and who is better known for ending 2008 with his new look than Bollywoods own hunk John Abraham! In the name of journalism I decided to take a training session with Los Angeles based Hollywood and Bollywood fitness trainer Mike Ryan, the man responsible for Johns bangin’ body in those yellow trunks of Dostana. Talking about John while working out, now thatâ€™s inspiration…..
