Priyanka Chopra is Flying High

Sanjay Gadhvi, the director of superhits Dhoom and Dhoom 2 along with the thriller Kidnap and love story Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai is coming to us with another movie. This new movie, called 7 Days in Paris, will star the young and talented Imran Khan. He was also in Jaane Tu...Ya Jaane Na, Kidnap, and in an upcoming movie, Luck. Sanjay Gadhvi had signed Katrina Kaif for the lead female role, but due to some differences about the script and such, Katrina left the movie.

Director Sanjay Gadhvi then approached Priyanka Chopra for the role. Now Priyanka received almost all popular choice awards for best actress, so she has started getting an ego thing. She has raised prices dramatically now. When approached for this movie, PC demanded Rs. 5 crore. This blew Gadhvi's mind and PC was then thrown out of 7 Days in Paris. PC apparently felt that she would be doing a favor starring opposite Imran Khan because he is new to the industry. Now Gadhvi will be approaching Asin and Genelia D'Seuza for the role.

Okay so personally I'm surprised that Priyanka has airs already and is no longer stable on earth. I thought she would not let it get to her, but she did. It's all due to Fashion though. In no other movie has she been applauded for her acting, and now all of a sudden she thinks she is all that. I just hope she comes back smoothly and on her own soon before she gets too high, because as we all know, gravity pulls down and no matter how high you go, you will have to come back to earth.

Shiney Ahuja Rape Case

Shiney Ahuja has officially been proven to have raped the 20 year old maid at his house and the DNA reports will be used as evidence. What a disappointment, shame, and disgrace it is that people commit these types of violent crimes just because they can. Celebrities should especially come together to speak out against such crimes because they have the media and public support and are role models to hundreds of thousands, and potentially millions, of fans worldwide.

Bollywood Reactions to MJ

As we all know, Michael Jackson was truly talented and was an icon worldwide for his legendary music and dance forms. He tragically passed away on June 25, 2009. Bollywood has now spoken. Here are some of the responses.

Choreographer Farah Khan: "I officially had no training in dance and whatever I learnt was by watching Michael Jackson's videos, especially `Thriller` over and over again. I consider him as my 'guru'. He was the real reason why I wanted to become a choreographer."

Actor Sanjay Dutt: "I have never seen an artist with so much talent. He was a great performer and a super entertainer."

Director Anurag Basu: "An era ends with his death."
Singer Shankar Mahadevan: Michael Jackson was "an institution of modern music who produced 'Heal the world.'"

Singer Sukhwinder Singh: "Michael's grip on the music was too wide to be restricted to one genre."

Singer Sunidhi Chauhan recalls his song, "I just can't stop loving you."

Palash Sen: "...the only singer in history who everyone knows across the globe."

Bollywood Visits America

Just a heads up. Next week, SRK will be going to Hotel Fairmount on a day (unknown as of now) and will mingle with his fans. The hotel is in San Francisco, California, USA. It will cost $250 for a photograph with him and even more to sit at that same table. If you are interested, call Hotel Fairmount for more information.

Also, if you are in the US and are interested in dance, visit creations-dance.com. Terence Lewis is a reputed choreographer in India and will be performing a workshop in Edison, New Jersey, USA on July 18-19. Check out the website for more information.

New York

Powered by: Chakpak.com New York 



Yes, I saw the movie, and yes, I loved it. I think the movie was very well made. The actors were definitely well chosen. In fact it seemed that the characters were somehow based around the actors to fit their persona perfectly. John played the popular college jock, and c'mon...John's physique and facial attitude totally fit that. Katrina was the cute and fun girl in college who hung with the guys, and she played the role beautifully. We don't know much about Neil Nitin Mukesh as of now since this is his first major role that people are actually going to notice him in. His previous movies were both thrillers and the genre seems to suit him very well. He has proven himself as a very good actor and has once again played wonderfully the serious role he was given. Now Katrina's role didn't have a lot of depth, but it did have a couple different sides, going from spunky college girl to loving, hopeful, and protective wife. Normally her acting is not so much acting but more charm. In this movie though she seemed to have a really nice handle on her character and presented Maya with grace and talent. John Abraham's role was probably the most versatile. This part has a spoiler, so if you don't want to spoil this, skip the yellow part. John goes from hunky college champ to someone who leads a double life- one of a cute and lovable family man and one of a cold and vindictive terrorist Neil did pretty well also with the double agent. And someone who hasn't been mentioned yet...Irfan Khan. What should I say about him? He is super talented. He does comedy, drama, and FBI/cop so skillfully and is probably an underdog in the industry.

Okay moving on to the story. If you don't want a spoiler, don't read the yellow. So the beginning of the story is mostly flashbacks to the college days, and it is a very typical bollywood college setting. Most of the scenes have been done before as other reviews have pointed out. The X-Factor was definitely there and all three of the leads had a screen presence. The love triangle was apparent without them saying anything and it was quite predictable. Then the story takes a twist and we come back to the present, which is 7 years post 9/11. We see John and Katrina's family and it is just adorable. The acting was done well, the scenery was beautiful, and the shots were appealing. We saw a lot of sights. But then we see the dark side of John Abraham. He is indeed a terrorist, created by the FBI's torturing treatment. This was a major shock to me because I just didn't see the terrorist in John. John, however, did an excellent job showing us that he was a terrorist and his expressions were awesome. The story was quite convincing for me. Many reviews have said no...not very believable and quite an overdone idea. I disagree. I think the story was played out wonderfully and the change in the characters was acted brilliantly. John and Katrina have not really been known for their acting, but they definitely changed some minds, including mine.

The movie was extremely gripping. I did not leave my chair at all and was just completely into the movie. The second half was expecially interesting with that one major shock it gives. I just wanted to know what would happen, even though I kind of already knew but didn't want to believe it. So I think it is definitely worth the watch and I loved the movie. Now my opinions are generally contrary to the common belief...I'm not into the stupid pointless masala unless there is something else in the movie. But this movie has some masala, an interesting story, and lovely music (without the superfluous random songs with dancing in exotic locations). Definitely worth your while.

Male Actors Slideshow

Hope you enjoy the male actors slideshow below. More slideshows will surely follow!

Khan News

Imran Khan is first on our list here. He has made his place in our hearts through his roles in Jaane Tu...Ya Jaane Na and Kidnap, and is now coming in Luck with Sanjay Dutt (again) and Mithun Chakraborthy. Totally psyched for this movie! The director asked Imran Khan to go on Salman Khan's show Dus Ka Dum, but IK refused because he doesn't believe that reality shows help promote a movie. I don't fully agree here, but...then again...who asked me?

Next on our list is Sallu Bhai himself. As we all know, him and SRK had a fight at Katrina's birthday bash and have been fighting since. Salman is now apparently dropping hints that he wants to befriend SRK again. He is inviting SRK's friends to Dus Ka Dum and trying to get close to SRK. He has even admitted that he would not mine working with SRK in a movie. I'd say this is a good thing because it shows that Sallu's ego is still normal and not "superstar" size. Some Bollywood news anchors have said that Sallu has to now directly take a step in the direction of friendship, but I say that SRK should do a little bit too. He thinks too highly of himself and needs to land his feet back on earth.

The third Khan for this update is Sarfaraz Khan. Know who I'm talking about? Well he's Kader Khan's son who played Aslam in Tere Naam. He is coming in three movies in the near future. One is
Wanted, by Prabhu Deva. The second is Kisaan by Puneet Sira, which also stars Sohail and Arbaaz Khan, Jacky Shroff, and Diya Mirza. Sarfaraz will be playing the villain Kaku in this movie. The third movie, which I have also mentioned earlier, is Satish Kaushik's Milenge Milenge, in which Sarfaraz plays Shahid Kapoor's best friend.

Okay so that's the Khan update for now. This info was found at bollywoodsamachar.com

Recently Released Trailers

Two new movies released their trailers recently.

The first is
Dil Bole Hadippa starring Shahid Kapoor and Rani Mukherjee. The link for the trailer is at the bottom of this paragraph. It's a comedy and I can kind of see a blend of a lot of movies in this. Rani's character sort of reminds of her character in Bunty Aur Babli and the broken English is like that from Saawariya. Then Shahid's role of starting a team seems to be a blend of SRK from Chak De! India and the soccer (football) team in Goal. Then the whole girl turning into a sardarji is the whole Amanda Beins from She's the Man blended with Ritesh Deshmukh from Apna Sapna Money Money. Anyways, overall the movie seems really funny and I'm definitely looking forward to Shahid in those Punjabi dance numbers. Plus, who doesn't love cricket? Check out the trailer!

The other movie is
Perfect Mismatch, starring Anubhav Anand (debut) and Nandana Sen, along with...get ready...Anupam Kher AND Boman Irani...together again!! These two men are extremely talented in my opinion and are perfect for clashing comedy roles. This is an Indo-American production, like Roadside Romeo, The Other End of the Line, and Slumdog Milionaire. It seems to be really funny until the very end of the trailer, at which point it seems to turn the movie into a drama, which in some cases is great, but in this case...I am kind of hesitant about that part. The movie is a must watch though with the comic Anupam Kher and Boman Irani together again after Khosla Ka Ghosla. Check out the trailer!

Shiney Ahuja


So Shiney Ahuja was accused of rape. His fans refuse to believe that the allegations are correct, though. Fair enough because the case hasn't been presented in court yet, and no proof has been disclosed. At the time of the arrest, Shiney Ahuja claimed he was drunk and so the police took a sample of his blood for testing. The reports aren't in yet, but Shiney's wife said that he doesn't drink or smoke. So was Shiney lying? Or does his wife just not know? Was the girl who claimed he raped her just doing this for the publicity? Who knows?

Hrithik Roshan and the Paparazzi!

Hrithik Roshan is one of the best paid actors in Bollywood. He's been making news a lot lately. First with the awards...he won quite a few best actor awards, in case you were unaware. He won best actor at Filmfare, IIFA, and Star Screen, and several other awards in other categories for Jodhaa Akbar.
Then came his alleged affair with Barbara Mori, his co-star in the upcoming movie Kites. Turns out this whole affair was a rumor!!! A total publicity stunt! I don't know about you, but I would have watched the movie regardless of the stunt...in fact knowing that this stunt was pulled I am kind of upset that the entire team would cook this up. So how do we know this is a rumor? Well, before the IIFA awards, Hrithik kissed his wife before going on stage, and a drunk friend blurted out that kissing Sussane would hurt their plan of cooking up an affair to promote the movie. Okay, moving on from this now. If you want to check out Kites, go to http://www.kites-thefilm.com/. That's the official website for it and it's got the synopsis and all there.

Hrithik was offered a role in the remake of Agneepath that Karan Johar is planning on making. Do you remember the disaster that was the remake of Don? Well Hrithik does. He turned down the offer to work in Agneepath because he didn't want to remake a movie that originally had Amitabh Bachchan. So now our Karan is left without a Vijay for the remake...and who better to fill the spot than little Junior? That's right! Abhishekh Bachchan will be living the dream playing the character that his father originally played in Baby B's favorite movie.

Fun fact: Hrithik paid the third highest income tax (after Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan), an amount of Rs. 8 crore, last year.

Okay that's the end of my Hrithik update. Stay tuned for more updates on more actors and movies, and please comment and subscribe.

Upcoming Movies

Soo I'm about to talk about Kaminey, New York, Kambakht Ishq, 3 Idiots, Love Aaj Kal, and Munna Bhai Chale Amerika...in no particular order

1. Kamineystarring Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra- I am eager to see their pair because both are very good looking and even more popular. Shahid Kapoor's memorable pairs have been opposite Amrita Rao, Kareena Kapoor, and Ayesha Takia...and personally I think Priyanka and Shahid make an adorable couple. I'm totally psyched to see them sizzle on screen. Now speaking of Shahid Kapoor and Ayesha Takia...whatever happened to Paathshaala? It just kind of disappeared with the whole war and all. I was really looking forward to that as well because their pair is one of the best I've seen...they both have that childish yet mature look and ambience. Anyways back to Kaminey. Unfortunately the trailer made the look really weird and dull...and the names Charlie and Guddu don't suit Shahid. Sweety doesn't really suit Priyanka either but we'll be seeing both of them in completely different roles. I'm excited to see how this one turns out. The last movie Vishal Bharadwaj directed was Omkara and he hasn't really had many outstanding movies...let's hope for the best.

2. New Yorkstarring Neil Nitin Mukesh, John Abraham, and Katrina Kaif- Neil Nitin Mukesh has managed to stay under the radar. Johnny Gaddaar is a movie that not very many people even know about...let alone have seen. Same with Aa Dekhen Zara. Aa Dekhen Zara came out during the war and not many theaters took it. It did poorly with sales, but Neil Nitin Mukesh still has a promising career. He has acted extremely well and I really like his selection of movies...all 3 of his movies mentioned here are thrillers/action movies. I have great hopes for him. I am soo excited to see him with John and Katrina. Both of them have matured in acting since they entered the film industry and the three make a cute set of friends. Other movies have tried to capture the post 9-11 atmosphere in America and have failed miserably. Hopefully this won't be one of those.

3. Kambakht Ishqstarring Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor- This one seems like a nice...or maybe not so nice... comedy. I am sort of nervous about the chemistry and all...apparently Akshay treats Kareena like a kid sister and in the movie he makes out with her...awkward!!! Soo the story is basically a war of the sexes...who's better...man or woman? Akshay is a male shovenist basically and he is the stuntman of the year. Kareena is the supermodel of the year and completely defies what Akshay thinks a woman is good for....or that's what it seemed like to me from the trailer. I am looking forward to the special appearences by people like Sylvester Stallone because he is a complete legend when it comes to Hollywood. Overall though, I am expecting a hilarious comedy with some fun and masti. Another one I'm waiting for.

4. 3 Idiotsstarring Aamir Khan, R. Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Kareena Kapoor, and Boman Irani- I am sooo excited for this movie. Aamir Khan always gives me something to look forward to and somehing to trule appreciate. The rest of the cast is pretty good too. I don't like Madhavan that much, but he's okay. Sharman Joshi is adorable and hilarious, and Boman Irani is just amazing. Kareena Kapoor had really grown as an actor over the years and lately has been acting pretty well. I think it's safe to say that Jab We Met was really a turning point for her in terms of acting and she has done better since that. It is writted, produced, and directed by the makers of the Munna Bhai soon-to-be trilogy, so I am expected tons of laughs. Now I'm about to say something that may disappoint thousands of people out there, but I think Shah Rukh Khan is the most overrated actor in the industry and he really does not deserve the popularity and fame he has. That's my opinion though, and many have already tried and failed to change it. Why am I talking about SRK rather than the movie now? Well SRK was originally cast for 3 Idiots and he turned it down. I am soo thankful for that. Anyways, this movie hasn't really been publicized much and as far as I know the trailer isn't out, so I can't say much more for it. All I really know right now is that this is supposed to be another Aamir Khan Christmas release.

5. Love Aaj Kalstarring Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone- Saif Ali Khan has become one of my favorite actors lately. He has been doing some really different roles very well and has shown his maturity and versitality as an actor. Deepika has completely failed to impress me though. She is not really that pretty...there are many much prettier actresses in Bollywood. Her acting hasn't been amazing in the slightest and the way she talks is very unappealing. She needs to redeem herself with Love Aaj Kal because it is a role that she can relate to, which is a modern woman (for the most part in the trailer). This movie seems really funny but there was a lot of almost kissing in the trailer and I don't know how that will go over with the Indian public. Saif Ali Khan looks quite young in the trailer, as opposed to at the Filmfares earlier this year, and both seem to make a nice couple. I am not really sure how this movie will turn out, but I will defiintely watch it. It's coming out this July...as of now at least.

6. Munna Bhai Chale Amerikastarring Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi- I have waited for I think over a year now for this movie to come out. The date has yet to be finalized. The movie was rumored to be discontinued and then rumored again to be recontinued so I have no idea where it stands now. This movie would complete the trilogy of Munna Bhai. When Munna Bhai MBBS came out, people had few hopes initially but came out with a WOW feeling. Lage Raho Munna Bhai was also amazing with a message and most people agreed that this defied all laws of movie series in that the second outdid the first. The trailer for Munna Bhai Chale Amerika was hilarious and got my hopes up for another movie packed with both tears and laughs. I just hope the movie still releases...and I will be sitting in the theater for the first day first show.

So those are the main movies I am looking forward to. And the honorable mention goes to...drum roll please... Milenge Milenge! Word is that Kareena has agreed to finish shooting this movie with Shahid and this movie may release. I have no idea what the movie is about, but hey...it's Kareena and Shahid, and after Jab We Met, who can deny that this pair is going to rock again?

Okay well that's it for now. Please leave your views on this post...or anything Bollywod really...here. Thanks for reading!!!

Kal Kissne Dekha

Powered by: Chakpak.com Kal Kisne Dekha 



So I just saw Kal Kissne Dekha a few days ago. Both Jackky and Vaishali acted pretty well considering this is just their first movie. Jackky was adorable and Vaishali was...well...a spoiled brat, so both lived up to their. Although many people came out disappointed that this was the first movie after the producer-theater war was over, but it was definitely worth the watch. There was romance, mild comedy, and some drama in the first half and then it transformed into sort of a thriller in the second half. Although none of the individual genres were explored too deeply, the movie definitely had a good balance. The supporting cast was AWESOME though....Rishi Kapoor, Ritesh Deshmukh, Rahul Dev, Archana Puran Singh, Satish Shah, and others. If you are debating whether or not to watch it, I'd say go for it!!

Heyy

Hello to all Hindi movie lovers out there. Bollywood is the largest film industry in the world and has a huge fan following. People from all over the world watch these movies and drool over the actors and actresses, whether they understand Hindi or not. I am a die hard fan of Bollywood and could not live without Hindi movies, so I thought I'd share my love with many others like me here. I hope you enjoy my posts and comment with your thoughts. Enjoy!!
