Somehow, fantasies that belong to Tim Burton genre (Edward Scissorhands, Big Fish) have always appealed to me. I enjoy films that are set in fantasy locations and have real people in it as they have a different kind of excitement to it and have a huge scope of imagination. And having spent most of my childhood with Aladin, playing video games of Aladin, solving jigsaw puzzles, watching his cartoon series, etc., made me very much interested in watching the film. I always have loved Aladin.
Set in the contemporary period, the film has characters borrowed from the original story. Our lead character, who is named Aladin by his family members, is teased by school and college mates and is made to rub lamps like the Aladin in the original story does to call the Djinn. Meanwhile we have the Ringmaster, played by Sanjay Dutt, who is trying to hunt the magic lamp by which he can make Djinn his slave and ask him to fulfil his three wishes. Predictably, the lamp falls into the hands of Aladin, gifted to him by Jasmine (Jaqueline Fernandez) on his birthday. Jasmine obviously is the love interest of Aladin, as in the original story.
Because B H A I was getting so restless for Ranbir news, I thought he should get a special dedication in addition to the usual one

Abhishek did his first day for â€˜PAAâ€™ today. Had another star visitor on set, Ranbir Kapoor. He later sent me a sweet and affectionate sms, which was most endearing. Talking about my look in the film. He has shaped up so well in his career so far and with such ease and rapidity. Cannot imagine he was assisting Sanjay Leela Bhansali as an AD on â€˜Blackâ€™. His tutoring and training on Ayesha the little girl that played Raniâ€™s younger portion, paid such dividends for the little artist. He and Sonam Kapoor were assistants on the set together. And now look at them. Big stars in their own right. Feels so wonderful to watch how this generation grows and accomplishes itself.

NG..eye on the Buzz…
At 10 am in the morningÂ at Treasure Island, a mall at M.G.Road Indore, people already started gathering. AtÂ 2 pm it wasÂ 5000 plus people inside the mall. The simple reason that the Bachchans are gonnaÂ arrive at 7.30 pm for giving away the prizes to theÂ PVR Sarkar Raj contest winners.Â The news came in that only Big B has managed toÂ arrive coz Aishwarya has measels and Abhishek is busy with Dostana.
At 7 pmÂ TI was full with 25,000 people. This is the attendance record it setÂ on 26th Jan when the mall actuallyÂ opened coz its the first mall of Madhya Pradesh. At 8 pm when Big B actuallyÂ arrived it took him 15 mins to travel 100 meter distance amongstÂ a huge huge gathering.
One cannot deny the fact that no matter its Khans, Roshans or Jr. Bachchan or anyone. ShehenshahÂ creates a frenzyÂ like no oneÂ does. He is surely over boxoffice status.Â Despite all this why is it that Bachchans are wasting time on Sarkar Raj and promoting it :-s…or this is a prep for theÂ upcoming Drona.
The show at 8 pm and 6:15 were around 70% and others were damp squib. In IndoreÂ as i can see the film has collapsed in week 2 itself. There’s a saying in Indore, if you dont see much parking space available in VELOCITY, MP’s first multiplex, it reflects the film being massive, SR had a great first day but Saturday that parking lot wasÂ empty.
