This Post is Particularly for jealous Hater of Srk and all others interested in the topic .Games and movies two different mediums for us which provide us loads of entertainment and all those amazing feels and moments .
Don’t know if i am repeating the lines from my previous post pardon me
Karan Johar, for example, recently received a special invitation from the British Tourist Authority to attend the event. He has apparently halted filming for his next film ‘Student of the Year’ to attend the games in London.
Another star who will be attending is Anil Kapoor. Kapoor was invited by Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle. Boyle is the director of the Olympics opening ceremony, and Anil will be his personal guest!
We’ve also heard unconfirmed rumblings of Deepika Padukone and Abhishek Bachchan attending the Games. Deepika, who’s always said that her first love is sports, will probably check out the Badminton matches. Wonder what the other stars fancy?!?

Rajjo sat in between Harry and Aayat in a line and followed Harry’s eyes that turned back to behold Aayat.Aayat smiled back.Rajjo looked back at Aayat and could see the happiness on her face.She looked back at Harry whose eyes were fixed for moments on Aayat. The circle was complete but she was out of the desired line of sight.The disappointment on face on her face was evident and the awkwardness soon set in and the last traces of expression was of a volcano being prepared deep inside her soul that had been bruised by that line of sight between Harry and Aayat.The “Green Eyed Monster” had gripped Rajjo and she was captured by the sense of loss that seemed all the more impending,thanks to that one evidence provided by the warmth in Harry and Aayat’s eyes!!
Rajjo describes the greatest and most addictive emotion of jealousy in her entire portrayal. She is a very prominent spoke of the wheel of ” Mausam”. She acts as the perfect “outsider” to that developing “perfect” world of Harry and Aayat. She portrayed the “without” in the “within” of a world that she detested developing. Note the scene where later in the movie she agrees to help Aayat to find Harry and also allows Aayat to use her telephone and we feel that since Rajjo is married,she has long forgotten the jealousy that she once harboured…but the scene where she burns the letter from Aayat to Harry in the fire makes a very emphatic statement–The Romans and Women never forget.They might forgive but they never forget. One cannot miss the way her hands crush the paper and thus signify the “remembrance” of the loss that meant a life to her.Rajjo clinched her hands,the paper got crushed and then burnt in fire.I personally have not seen a much better description of jealousy in recent times or even in the past few years with such strong metaphorical grammar.
Let me start with a disclaimer since Iâ€™ve been getting hassled by people with too much time on their hands who seem to think that just because I loved Tees Maar Khan that I must somehow be associated with Shirish Kunder, Farah Khan, and/or Akshay Kumar in some way. I am not. I do not get paid to write nor do I get any other sort of compensation. I do this on my own time because I love films and I find that my point of view isnâ€™t really represented in a lot of the film writing out there.
You can read my review of the film http://filmigirl.blogspot.com/2010/12/tees-maar-khan.html
ETA: Please read the commenting disclaimer. Disagreeing with me is fine but nasty comments will be deleted.
The intention is to make you laugh of course, which it manages at exactly 2-and-a-half places. Donâ€™t ask which, because those moments donâ€™t really stay with you.

Read this wonderfully written and on-the-dot article… so sharing it with you guys.
So maybe I’m going to get lynched for saying this, have my patriotism, maybe even my sense of fun, questioned. But–seriously, honestly, without fear of peer pressure–do you really think Malaika Arora Khan in Munni badnam hui is sexy? The paper informs me it’s so every day, but I can’t see it — and heaven knows, I’ve tried. Ditto Bipasha Basu in Beedi from Omkara.
Indian fans eagerly await the kick-off Dileep Premachandran
FEVER EVERYWHERE:In football-crazy Kerala it’s a common sight to find fans supporting their favourites.
Domestic football in India may only be a sideshow but the World Cup has gripped the subcontinent. An auto-rickshaw driver in Kerala’s Malappuram district has painted his vehicle in Argentina’s sky-blue-and-white. Over the next month, his fellow Albiceleste fans will be given free rides around town.
Every four years, while the monsoon rain beats down like a scene from â€˜One Hundred Years of Solitude’, this football-crazy part of the world becomes almost an extension of South America. It’s impossible to go more than a mile or two without seeing either an Argentinian or Brazilian flag.
Messi, Tevez, Robinho and Kak are frozen for posterity on hoardings and you can even drink special fruit juices in the colours of your team.
That very annoying problem has now been fixed!
As a student at IIM Ahmedabad, Chetan Bhagat founded a magazine, Tomato Ketchup. Even at IIM-A, not the most literary of places, Tomato… was reportedly considered lowbrow and died a premature death. Bhagatâ€™s subsequent literary forays have seen more popular success but continue to be considered lowbrow.
But Bhagat need not fret. The novel genre itself was considered lowbrow and commercial during its early days. As Daniel Defoe, often considered the first novelist, said, â€œWriting itself has become a very considerable branch of the English commerce. The booksellers are the master manufacturers, or employers. The several authors, copiers, sub-writers and other operators with Pen and Ink are the workmen employed by the said manufacturer.â€ Ian Watt, author of the classic The Rise of the Novel, says Defoeâ€™s style was considered to be â€˜easy, copious and unpremeditatedâ€™ in contrast to the â€˜verbal grace, complication of structure…â€™ of the prevalent literary culture.
Watt argues that while the early novels may not have been masterfully crafted, they were revolutionary in their movement away from Classical Idealism towards a greater empathy for individual imperfection. They also understood the needs of the rapidly rising, newly literate, industrial revolution-created bourgeoisie. These two seminal course changes, in structure and audience, by the early novelists laid much of the foundation for the development of modern literature.
Indian writing in English, from Bankim Chandra to Arundhati Roy, has not had the same middle-class trajectory of the West and has been accused of being elite. While it has successfully answered W.B. Yeatsâ€™s admonishment that â€œno man can think or write with music and vigour except in his mother tongueâ€, it has not quite successfully countered U.R. Ananthamurthyâ€™s allegation of â€œwriting for exportâ€.
First and foremost I would like to thank Abhishek Bhandekar [Abzee] and Sandhya Iyer [Sandy] for being great hosts and welcoming this guest to Bombay and Pune. Sandy will not mind, but I must give huge thanks to Abzee. The guy just spoiled me. For 6 days, taking time out of his busy schedule, he showed me a lot of Bombay and most of the journey on the back of his motorbike. A little scared at first, the motorbike journeys made the experience that much unforgettable.
Anyway, thanks to both Abzee/Sandy and with their help, this is what I covered on my journey through Bombay and Pune.
Day1 – My haircut (at Aura Spa in JB Nagar, Andheri)
Italian cafe for some lunch (this was in Juhu, the place is Alfredo’s)
Bike around Juhu area – spotting the star houses (we passed the Bachchan residences Pratiksha and Jalsa, and also passed by Siddharth Anand’s place)
Juhu Beach (what we did this evening was go to Juhu beach and walk along the shore…saw Feroze Khan and Hema Malini’s bungalows along the beach…I also had my first gola experience at the beach)
Evening spent watching Equus play at Pritvi Theatre (Prithvi Theatre is of great significance to the theatre scene in Mumbai…it was started by Prithviraj Kapoor and is now being run by Sanjana Kapoor, daughter of Shashi Kapoor…we saw Shashi Kapoor sitting at the cafeteria outside and also saw Makrand Deshpande turn up for the play)
Train journey to South Bombay using Western Line (We went to CST (formerly VT, and still rightly called that by almost everybody) and used the Harbour Line train which goes over port stations like Cotton Yard, Reay Road, etc. We walked from VT to Kyani, passing the Victorian structures of the Mumbai Municipal Office and St. Xavier’s College)
Breakfast/lunch @ Kyani Iranian Restaurant (Kyani restaurant is situated right opposite the iconic Metro theatre which of course has now been turned into a multiplex by Anil Ambani’s Big Cinemas…thankfully, they haven’t touched the outer exterior or changed the name)
Walks through Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Oval Maiden, High Court area. Walk through fashion street (The walk beginning Kyani is when we entered South Mumbai, VT is a part of the Central & Harbour Line…we walked alongside the Fashion Street, then the High Court, Rajabai Clock Tower and the University of Mumbai…we circled around the Oval Maidan and passed the Eros cinema to reach Churchgate station, which is the last station on the Western Line)
Train journey back up Western Line – Wankhede stadium in background (The journey back was on the Western Line…it is on this evening, after we came back to the hotel that we left for Raymond’s in Andheri (West))
Dinner @ restaurant/hotel (The restaurant was Tunga Paradise in MIDC, Andheri)
Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge? is the story of Puneet (Ajay Devgn) and Munmun (Konkona Sen), a happily married couple living in Mumbai whose lives take an interesting turn when a distant relative, Chachaji (Paresh Rawal) turns up …
A 20-year-old medical student, whose identity was not immediately known, was found dead in her flat at Chaitanya Nagar in the upmarket Powai area of north-west Mumbai, police said, adding that prelimanary investigations suggest it could be a suicide even though no note was found at the spot.
The girl, a first year medical student of DY Patil College in Navi Mumbai, had reportedly failed in two subjects in her recent term examinations, police added.
A BOOK, A FILM AND THE TRUTH
The 3 Idiots story credit issue has been making some noise now. The news is coming out in bits and pieces, and I think it is important I clarify a few things. Yes, clearly, the makers of the film have been unfair and thousands of my readers have been saying so. I am aware of this, and this is not an issue that has â€˜just come upâ€™. Iâ€™ve been grappling with it for two years, but kept silent about it.
Former Pakistan captain Rameez Raja has described Indian opener Virender Sehwag as the most destructive and entertaining batsman in modern cricket.
Lavishing praise on the right-hander, who is in scintillating form right now, Rameez said Sehwag is the only batsman …
NEW DELHI â€” Protesters took to the streets Friday, setting public buses on fire and clashing with police, in anger over India’s decision to carve a new state out of the southern region of Andhra Pradesh.
The conflict highlighted the tensions that underlie the vast array of ethnic and linguistic groups bound together in the massive Indian nation.
The country has allayed some of that friction by giving substantial power to its 28 states and creating new states to empower still more ethnic minorities.
I was lucky enough to catch Made In Pakistan, a Pakistani documentary, at the recently concluded Mumbai Film Festival. About four Pakistani youths from different walks of life who all hope for a better Pakistan and work at it in their own little ways, the documentary dispels certain notions that we may have about Pakistan in the process. Form-fitting jeans are just as much a need for the Pakistani youth as it is for teenagers in any other country of the world! The following is my interview with the makers of the feature who were present at the venue.
Theirs is the only Pakistani film among the some 200 films being screened at MAMIâ€™s 11th Mumbai Film Festival. Theirs is the first ever documentary to have had a mainstream theatrical release in Pakistan. And their feature just picked up the Audience Award at the recently concluded South Asian Film Festival in New York, USA. And yet, walking into the Business Lounge, the entry-restricted â€˜businessâ€™ area of the festival, one can sense theyâ€™d rather feel more comfortable out in the open, among the other film-lovers. Theyâ€™re still unassuming film-lovers themselves, you see. Theyâ€™re aware of the commerce of the business, but the commerce hasnâ€™t gripped them yet, hasnâ€™t corrupted them.Â â€œOh, we were donning multiple hatsâ€, says producer Adil Sher. â€œI served as Production Manager as well and Nasir was his own Assistant Directorâ€¦and sometimes also the Boom Operator! But we were passionate, so it all fell in place.â€
(CNN) — The U.S Army has granted a member of a religious minority permission to keep his turban, beard and uncut hair while he serves in the military, the Pentagon and a group representing him said.
Capt. Kamaljit Singh Kalsi, a doctor, is a Sikh, a faith that calls on its adherents not to shave or cut their hair.
Kalsi filed a request in the spring for an accommodation to follow the principles of his religion. This month the Army granted his request, the Sikh Coalition told CNN. The Pentagon public affairs office later confirmed that Kalsi would be allowed to keep his turban, beard and uncut hair.
There are many things in everyone’s life which people can’t understand, doesn’t make sense, I have boat load of them as well, like say,why we fight on NG. Please tell me why we do so? We don’t fight on the most favorite fighting topic of the world, religion, since we are mature enough to rise above other’s religious and political beliefs, but then dare say anything against Ranbir, Hrithik, Shahrukh, Aamir, Akshay, there will be no turning back….
Obama winning Nobel, again something like that. I would have been fired had my achievement at my job would have been as close to Mr. Obama, but he got Nobel. Forget about Guntanamo, AganIraqPakifukstan, even Rush Limbaugh is allowed to say whatever he wants to, he still has shows.
You know what else I can’t understand, dry cleaning, how the fuck can you clean something without using any form of liquid? Even my mum used to use her spit on her dupatta to wipe off ice creams and mud from my face. Don’t lie, your mum used to do the same, I know, its something with desi mothers, they think their spit is cleaner than ice creams. Only dry cleaning I know is when you drop something on yourself while eating, and scrape it with your nail, heck, if you realize no one is looking, you will spit on that stain and then scrape it from your nail, hence I can’t understand dry cleaning, spl while paying more for it.
I have totally given up on women, not just women, but even the stuff they use. Ex, dishwashers, Energy star dishwasher, 1000 bucks, whisper quite, EQ washsystem (since I don’t have enough IQ thats why EQ dishwasher). Easy-Latch Door w/ Fully Visible Controls, but before washing the fuckin dishes you have to rinse them…… makes any sense? Sure doesn’t to me. Honey, wash the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher Â Why you spent 1000 bucks on this piece of crap then? Your father already got this one for you after feeding some 500 people on that fateful night, out of which I still don’t know who 495 were.
NEW YORK â€” One of America’s wealthiest men was among six hedge fund managers and corporate executives arrested Friday in a hedge fund insider trading case that prosecutors say generated more than $25 million in illegal profits and should be a wake-up call for Wall Street.
Raj Rajaratnam, a partner in Galleon Management and a portfolio manager for Galleon Group, a hedge fund with up to $7 billion in assets under management, was accused of conspiring with others to trade based on insider information about several publicly traded companies, including Google Inc.
U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara told a news conference it was the largest hedge fund case ever prosecuted and marked the first use of court-authorized wiretaps to capture conversations by suspects in an insider trading case.
He said the case should cause financial professionals considering insider trades in the future to wonder whether law enforcement is listening.
“Greed is not good,” Bharara said. “This case should be a wake-up call for Wall Street.”
