Amrita Arora dumps cricketer Usman Afzal?

Sunday 6 July 2008
Amrita Arora is in the news, for the same reason her friend Kareena Kapoor was.. She dumped her ex boyfriend, the young British pakistan cricketer Usman Afzal for someone new. Its not known who the new love is for Amrita but isn't she following her friends footsteps?

Kareena dumped the lovable Shahid Kapur for playboy Saif Ali Khan, and she began to rise to a higher level as a heroine with big banner films under her grip.

It is also said that distance played a very big role to the break-up and they decided to part ways mutually. Amrita loved Afzal alot but couldn't hold on despite efforts from the actress. So now the actress is concentrating on her films Golmaal Returns and Kambakh Ishq, which are big releases too!

Is it a trend, break up and films start pouring on or maybe someones behind the new films.. time will tell.

Sanjay Dutt- tearful reunion with Trishala in the bahamas

Friday 4 July 2008
Sanjay Dutt reunion with his daughter Trishala took place while he was shooting for his film 'Blue', in the Bahamas. Manayata, his wife of just four months wasn't present with her husband.

"You remind me of my youth. I love you beta," Sanjay told his daughter, when she rushed into his arms in the Bahamas.. Oh that's pretty emotional, that father and daughter are pretty close even living miles away from each other.

Father and daughter spent ample time with each other, both showing love and affection with Sanjay taking great interest in Trishalas Collage life and the projects shes working on.

Trishalas also showing interest in joining films! With support from her aunt Enna, wonder what papa will have to say about his daughters new desire. She has also shot her portfolio, but dads consent is also important.

Trishala is a second year student at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, and shes the daughter of sanjays first wife Richa Sharma, who passed away on December 10, 1996 due to cancer. Since then Trishala has been living with her grandparents and mothers sister, Enna in Bay side, Queens, New York

"He seems to be happy and if he is happy, then I'm happy for him. If he found what he needs in her (Manyata), then that's great," said Trishala soon after spending some time with her dad. Pretty sweet of her to support her dad:)

Pooja Bedi- surrounded by 70 snakes

That is true that our bold and bubbly Pooja Bedi daughter of kabir bedi, was surrounded by snakes, but for a television reality show, yet again. I am waiting for the show to be put on air as this time its going to be our bollywood celebs doing the stunts in reality. We get to see them without make up and all they starry tantrums turned into fear! ha ha.. The host on the show is none other than our fearless tiger, Akshay Kumar..

The show is inspired by AXN's fear factor and is titled Khatron Ka Khiladi. This is India's fear factor where the game will be taken to the highest level of physical and mental challenge.

Here is what Pooja had to say about participating in the show..

"I enjoyed doing the stunts," Pooja Bedi tells us. "I had to do stunts, which I had never seen in my life before. We [the contestants] are all different personalities -- some are mothers, some are young and there is even a television bahu. All of us have worked hard and have been support system to each other during the show."

"I hate snakes. And I was surrounded by 70 snakes. I was almost dead! I screamed at the top of my voice, became hysterical and cried on television, which I have never done before. There were a few contestants, who loved the snakes and were even petting them.

"A lot of stunts were unexpected, and gave us a shock," she says. "But it was a thrilling experience before every stunt. We would always try to figure out by Akshay's costumes what the stunt would be. If he is wearing black, then we would guess it is something to do with scorpions."

Her take on Akshay shooting with the beautiful girls without make up: "He would be horrified seeing 13 actors without make-up!" she laughed. "Everyday we would put nice make-up. But with one stunt in the water, and all our make-up vanished.

"We were very scared but Akshay was encouraging," she continued. "Everyone has seen the actor in Akshay, now they will get to see the real him. He is the ultimate action guru when it comes to performing these death-defying stunts. He was fun, motivating and a great learning experience to work with."

"I want the next season of Fear Factor to be in 3D format because the audience should experience the fear that we go through when the stunt is done from a height," she adds.

Other contestants on show will be Aditi Govitrikar, Yaana Gupta, Sonali Kulkrani, Pooja Bedi, Anita Hassannandani, Tapur Chatterjee, Tupur Chatterjee, Meghna Naidu, Anjana Sukhani, Diptannita Sharma, Nethra Raghuraman, Vidaya Malvade and Urvashi Sharma.

Amy Winehouses wax figure to be unveiled by Madame Tassauds

Wednesday 2 July 2008

Yes, this time it is Ami Winehouse and her trademark beehive to be immortalised in wax, at Madame Tussuad's this month.

The singer had insisted she have her beehive on even as a wax figure, so was it, and not only the towering beehive but also her visible tattoos were engraved on to the wax figure.

The wax figure has been considered worthy of protection by the staff of London, as they fear some prankster might try to topple the beehive tower from the figure.

20 sculptors worked for months on the wax figure which weights 100,000 pounds.

Bapasha's Basu Taj Mahal being reconstructed


First it was Rani who had done up her house according to her dreams, now its Bipasha Basu who is reconstructing her home, but can you imagine travelling the world in search of wood and colors to suit her space! Our celebs could travel for just anything, even for a new flame;)

Bipasha's reply to why would she want to break up a beautiful home rather than buy a land and build up in accordance to her- No no!" she says. "I love the space that I live in and wouldn't want to leave it for anything in the world. I agree there's nothing wrong with my home as it is. But when it was being constructed, I couldn't give it the time and attention I should have." "I missed the specifications that I had in mind, but never got around to implementing. I need to modify my space to suit my energy,"

But when the lady is gifting the new home to herself, thats no big deal. She also deserves the break shes going to take after completion of her films.

"I know it's going to be tough to get down to doing something so drastic in my life. But I'm forever adventurous. And I've set a deadline - Jan 7 - my birthday for all the construction guys, designers and decorators to finish and move out of my 'Taj Mahal'. I've to set a deadline, otherwise it could go on forever."

That's almost 7 months to go! And i wonder if we would ever get the honor to visit Bipasha's 'Taj Mahal' ;)

The clash of Aishwarya and Abhishek

Saturday 28 June 2008
What is it that has come to our ears? Abhi-Ash's heated argument at the IIFA Awards ceremony in Bangkok! The couple who seem very much in love and happily married, were heard screaming at the top of their voices after storming out of the stage into their hotel room.

The trouble started when Aishwarya was being over expressive at the award function in company of actor Kunal Kapoor. Abhi who did not appreciate that requested her to keep low but she still continued grabbing attention. Abhi then took her to the hotel lobby and tried to put his point across to her. The actress however blasted at him over. Didn't i always comment on her over-artificial expressions??

Abhishek couldn't bare Ash's blasts on him and asked his personal security to escort his wife back to their hotel room! isn't that what we hear of all filmy couples? the first step to boredom-Ash? or maybe the first step to craving freedom-Abhi?

Whatever it is, we all want to wish the couple a happily married life forever!

Jennifer Lopez sued for £5 mn, her dogs bite caused the problem!


Jennifer Lopez has fallen into some bad soup. The actress/singer has been sued for $5mn for a mishap her dog caused a flight attendant, two years back. The reason as claimed by Lisa Wilson a flight attendant that she was attacked by the dog, got bitten badly on her leg and suffered back injuries, following a surgery and loss of work.

Lisa Wilson who worked for the airline company Net Jets back then, has filed a case against Jennifer in a Brooklyn Court on Thursday. Wilson’s lawsuit reportedly argues that Lopez is 'absolutely liable for all injuries' and 'should have known the dog had vicious propensities'. Though Wilson tried to settle things out of court, but was ignored by the pops tar so now the actress has to pay for the dogs attack and her ignorance!

Gautami is all set for a break post Kynkii..

Wednesday 25 June 2008
After playing Tulsi in Kynkii... for exactly one year, Gautami is all set to take a ‘much needed’ break. The actor is going on a long holiday with her family: husband Ram Kapoor and daughter Sia.

Says Gautami, “After working in a daily soap for a long time, I really needed a break. Daily soaps are damn tiring. Now that the show is over, we have decided to go on a holiday which will span almost two weeks. We are going to London first, and then we will spend the rest of the time in Spain.”

Gautami says she has no complaints with her term ending in Kyunkii… She says that, she is, in fact, very happy, that her entry and exit have been one of the talking points in the TV industry.

Interestingly, Gautami started shooting for the soap on June 5 last year, and this year, her term ended on the same day. “It is quite ironical that my start and end date is on the same day. I feel this is a funny coincidence,” she quips. Gautami rues the fact that she had to decline a lot of offers while she was working for Kyunkii....

“When I was working, a lot of people approached me and a few of them were really interesting. But, I could not take any of them because I was already tied up with Kyunkii.... Now, I have done with Kyunkii... and am free, not many interesting offers are coming my way,” she says.

Gautami has also refused Ekta Kapoor’s magnum opus Mahabharata. Gautami and Ram’s daughter Sia is just two years old and she does not want to get herself engrossed in too much work. In fact, when she got the offer to play Tulsi, she made it clear to Balaji Telefilms that she wouldn’t be able to give it more than seven hours per day.

“Balaji has been extremely kind to me and I only shot for a limited time frame every day besides getting offs on Friday and Saturday every week. I turned down Mahabharata without even asking what the character was all about. If I would have taken that up, I would have to shoot more than 12 hours each day. Mythologicals are all about costumes and special dialogues; so almost three hours would be spent on just the preparations,” Gautami says.

As her two-year-old Sia is growing up, Gautami wants to spend more time with her. “Ram is shooting for more than 12 hours each day; so it is impossible for him to be by her side all the time. So, I want to be with her, as it is extremely important to be with a kid when she is growing up,” she ends.

Hansika Motwani to play a role opposite Govinda


Hansika, the one time tiny tot has sprung up soo soon! Soon we are going to watch her in a comedy opposite Govinda who is on his 40's, while Hansika is just 17. Acting with stars more than half her age, doesnt affect her in any way.

"I am not Hansika when I am playing a role. It is the character I am playing, so the age of my co-star does not matter to me at all," Hansika says.

Koi... Mil Gaya, Escape from Taliban, Jaago and Aabra Ka Daabra were some of the few films Hansika started her career with as a little girl, but at 16, she debuted as a full-fledged actress in the film Aap Kaa Surroor opposite composer-turned-singer-turned-actor Himesh Reshammiya.

"As an actor you have to play a character when you are asked to. Even if it is a 70-year-old character you have to perform it."

Now Hansika will be seen with the 40-plus Govinda in the forthcoming comedy Money Hai To Honey Hai. She doesn't mind the age gap and says getting an opportunity to work with a senior actor like him was a privilege.

"I consider myself very lucky to have worked with Govinda. I have learnt so much from him and it will definitely be useful to me in future. I think it is a big opportunity for any actor to work with him."

Hansika is playing the role of a television actor in the comedy.

"I play the character of Ashima Kapoor who is a television actor and wants to make it big in the film industry. The film is about the journey of the actress into the film industry."

She has also acted in serials like Des Mein Nikla Hoga Chand, Hum Do Hain Na and Tum Bin.

Hansika gives credit to her family for shaping her career. "I idolise my mother and attribute my success to her. Without my mother and my family's support, I would not have reached this place."

Saifs temptations over Kareena

The lack of communication is likely to affect any relation that's stands in the mid of a rock(not exactly at the tip).. That's exactly where Saifeena's is standing.. Kareena and saif? as the two love birds are distanced away from each other due to work. I say in the mid because, as we all know about mom Babita's disapproval of their relationship and saif's sticky nature.. he's the one who accompanies her to every event he's not even invited to! Hope kareena's enjoying all the stickiness or else... you never know??

Despite all the obstacles they seem to be passing through, these two are leaving no stone unturned to keep their relationship intact. While Kareena was performing for Shahrukh Khan's show 'Temptations Reloaded'. Saif was in London, shooting for 'Thoda Pyar Thoda Magic' when he happened to miss Kareena and flew all the way to Amsterdam to be with his lady love..

Tyra Banks dedicates award to Oprah Winfrey

Monday 23 June 2008
Tyra Banks, model turned TV talk show host has dedicated her Daytime Emmy
Award to talk show "Queen" Oprah Winfrey hailing the TV powerhouse
as her "inspiration. "

Tyra bagged the award for outstanding talking Show in the Informative category and when she was presented with her award, Banks was full of praise for the veteran presenter Oprah Winfrey

She says, "I want to thank Oprah Winfrey for her inspiration. She is
the queen. She will always be the queen."

When Dolly Parton was toasted at the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors in December 2006, much of the press surrounding the event focused not only on Dolly, but on Jessica Simpson, who flubbed a performance, then left the stage in tears.

Jessica had been divorced from Nick Lachey for less than six months at the time, and on reflection, she really wasn’t ready to perform in public.

"I completely tortured ‘9 to 5,’" Jessica told the national radio show GAC Nights: Live From Nashville. "I messed the lyrics up, and my boyfriend broke up with me that day. I couldn’t even focus on stage, and I was in front of the president and everybody. Afterwards, my chin started quivering. I just started crying...and then I walked offstage, and I said, 'I will absolutely never sing again, ever in my life.' It made me afraid to go on stage. After going through a divorce, I was always used to my ex-husband standing side stage when I was done. I only performed twice during that [time], and every time I broke down onstage crying. I was dealing with a lot of pain and trying to heal, and it was such a process."

Obviously Jessica changed her mind about never singing again. She’s working on her first country album, and who was among the first to offer encouragement? Well, that would be Dolly.

"Afterwards, " Jessica noted, "Dolly was like, ‘Don’t you let that get you down. I want to hear you keep singing.’ I was just like, ‘I’m so sorry.’ And she’s like, ‘I don’t even want you to apologize. Let’s take a picture, and we’ll end up working together someday.’ And then she wrote me a letter, ‘cause all the media and the press were really, really hard on me, and I knew that was going to happen. And she even went as far as to say, ‘I will always love you.’ I just cried and cried reading the letter that she sent me, but it was so encouraging. "

That makes it quite appropriate that Dolly has a song slated for Jessica’s first country album. It’s titled "Do You Know," and Dolly will be singing on the song, as well.

James McAvoy reveals, he hates hot scenes

Sunday 22 June 2008
Actor James McAvoy, who has acted with the likes of Angelina Jolie and Keira Knightley, hates filming sex scenes.

Thesun.co.uk reports that he shares nothing more than a kiss in his latest movie 'Wanted' with Jolie.

Britney Spears 27, fears she will die before she's 28!


Britney fears she wont live for her 28Th birthday! according to Ian Halperin an author who penned down about Britney's life, with the hopes of the book to be aired on Dec '08'.The troubled star will turn 28Th on coming December.

Britney is also supposed be to suffering with drug abuse, bipolar problems and suicidal tendencies had revealed to Halperin personally that she fears she will die at 27. Ian studied the singer as an undercover paparazzo and that was when he got a chance to mingle in her inner circle.

"She told me she feared she'd die at age 27 (her current age), just like other music stars, like Janis Joplin and Kurt Cobain," Contactmusic quoted Halperin as saying

He also said: "I saw a lot. I partied with her and was able to really monitor what type of stuff she was using. It's very concerning. But the book is mainly about her handlers, how sleazy and destructive they are towards her. The people around her are like vultures"

Karan Johar is the latest celebrity blogger

Saturday 21 June 2008
colleagues Amtiabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan, ace filmmaker Karan Johar has also started blogging, but says he is doing it to put his thoughts into writing rather than vocalising them all the time.

'I've always been a closet writer. I've been offered newspaper columns that I almost did, but never got down to,' Karan told IANS.

'I feel a blog would be a good way to express my thoughts on cinema. Things that don't routinely get space in the traditional media outlets these days,' added the director who is all set to direct his next 'My Name is Khan' with Shah Rukh Khan.

Karan promises to be regular.

'But not compulsive. I don't see myself blogging from my sets when I start shooting 'Khan...' or when I'm abroad for my various events.'

Once a week on the blog is all you'll get of Karan.

'I've a staff to take care of the blog. And I certainly won't be peering anxiously into it every day. And the blog isn't to discuss my daily routine or my sexuality, although both may crop up when the need arises. But I'm not turning blogger to blabber about my life. God knows, I do enough of that on a daily basis.'

So is it lucrative?

'You mean am I getting paid to write the blog? Who's going to pay me to hear me talk on the net when there's so much of the Karan Johar wisdom being spewed in every possible place? No, I'm doing the blog for free.'

But if you think Karan's relationship with the media is going to change, then think again.

'My relationship with the media is an uneasy but permanent marriage. We may quarrel in the morning over breakfast. But we are friends at the end of the day. And everything goes back to normal the next morning.'

Wednesday 18 June 2008

The reality TV show big boss that got us all so excited at the cat fights between Rakhi Sawant and Kashmeera Shah, is about to light up our Sony TV screens once again.

According to rumours, the producers, Endemol India, have sold the format to Viacom Entertainment and Communications. The format in the new season will be different because this time, there will be celebrities as well as common folk living in the house.

So Warsi is offered 5 crores to host the show once again! wow.. Arshads going to make lots of money this year.

Eva Longoria ready to be mom?


Eva's reportedly pregnant.. what are all these young women up to? seems motherhood is turning more fashionable these days. No body wants to wait till they're in their 30's or 40's.. the 20 something mothers are in vogue!

Eva is not pregnant,” her stylist Robert Verdi told PEOPLE during a viewing party for his new show, She’s Got the Look.

And Verdi insists he has first-hand knowledge. “I’m not her gynecologist, but I am her stylist,” he explained. “I see her naked. I see her boobs! That’s the first place it would show, and it’s not showing!”

As for the Ferragamo photos, Verdi – who was with Longoria during the shopping expedition – said the shots are simply misleading. “Eva was holding a handbag that she bought in the crook of her arm,” he said. “The manager came over and said to her, ‘I love that bag.’ But in the photos, it looks like the woman is gesturing to her midsection. It’s too funny.”

Of course, this is not the first time pregnancy rumors have swirled around the 33-year-old star. Earlier this year, she denied similar reports – saying she just gained weight during the writers’ strike. “I’ve been cooking and eating, cooking and eating,” she said at the time. “I keep telling everyone that I’ve gained 10 pounds just being on strike.”

So now you know the fingers pointed to the lovely bag in Eva's hand, not her tummy!

Dasavatharam-review

Dasavatharam, which was under production for almost two years, has finally hit the marquee and in style. Kamal and the marvel of technology rule this venture of Aascar Films directed by K S Ravikumar who has packaged Kamal's dream with aplomb.

It would be an uphill task in understanding Dasavatharam if one does not pay adequate attention to the opening stadium scene where Kamal as scientist Govinda Ramasamy, renders an acceptance speech for all the praise he receives. The ensuing 12th century sequences will not fall into place if one does not concentrate on this scene.

Kamal as Rangarajan Nambi, in a gravity-defying movement, flies from the bottom of the statue and thrashes the baddies who are involved in removing the Lord Ranganathar idol. Napoleon plays Kulothunga Chozhan who is an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva. He agrees to pardon Kamal if he just chants Om Nama Shivayah but the latter meets his watery grave by saying Om Namo Narayanaya along with the idol.

Sharpness of dialogues exchanged between Kamal's family and Napoleon in this scene is commendable and a testimony to the clashes between Saivism and Vaishnavism that persisted in those earlier times. Napoleon, albeit in a small role, dazzles in his performance as the Saivite King. His arrogant countenance and 'mightier than thou' body language reiterate the experience of this veteran star in filmdom.

Cut to the present time again: Govinda Ramasamy (Kamal) is a scientist working in America, researching the components of biological warfare which are potent enough to wipe out the human race. The story that follows shows Kamal in a race to save mankind from the hands of his superior who purloins this dangerous chemical. His struggle begins in America and ends in Chennai on the 26th of December 2004 - during the Tsunami.

Out of the ten Kamals, the first one who walks away with plaudits is Indian RAW agent Balram Naidu who is presented with little make up. His Telugu dialogues are enjoyable and remind us of the SPB of Guna. Next is Boovaraghan with his Nellai Tamil. His body language is exemplary. The Japanese kung fu exponent comes third in this avatar race with limited dialogues and moderate make-up. The remaining Kamals fail to make an impression.

The theatre broke into raptures when the American Kamal asks the Japanese Kamal if he remembers Hiroshima to which the Japanese Kamal counters with, 'Do you remember Pearl Harbor?' Dialogue writing in the movie needs to be singled out.

The filmmakers ought to have done a better job of the poorly conceived Mallika Sherawat song sequence. The lady has disappointed her fans. Asin has done her job as best as she could, given her hysterical character. M. S. Bhaskar tries to make us laugh.

Cinematographer Ravi Varman has worked in sync with the story line and his camera movements are commendable. He has used artificial lighting well, especially with the lengthy shots where more than two Kamals appear on screen. Himesh shines in the Kallai mattum kandal and Mukunda numbers, while Devi Sri Prasad has done a good job with re-recording.

The usual filmi gimmicks such as grandma-Kamal walking on the shoulders of people, and Bush-Kamal trying to act hip could have been avoided.

In short, with unexpected twists and turns missing in the film, Dasavatharam is a make-up magic show that disappoints as drama and satisfies as a technical showpiece. Atheist Kamal seems to be indirectly affirming the existence of God here.
Friday 13 June 2008
Come Friday and the fight of the releases take place. Films like Sikander kher's 'Summer 2007', Kamal Kamal Hassan's 'Dashavataram' and M Night Shyamalan's 'The happening' all set to release today. There is also Priyadarshan's laugh riot 'Mere Baap Pehle Aap' added to the Three.

Which movie works in whose favour, we'll watch that later but according to me.. i think Kamals movie will cause much hype as the movie is heard to have kamal in 10 different roles, and he's always a genius in his work. Shyam's movie always has uS at the edge of our seatS, so this movie could over shadow Kamals movie but not necessary. We just have to wait and watch!

Jessica Alba adorns herself in a sari

Sunday 8 June 2008

Rakhi admits: what should or shoulnt be in sexiness kit

Rakhi Sawant’s sexiness kit would be devoid of a bra. Confused? Well, that’s our desi item bomb’s reply to Hollywood actress Carmen Electra’s concept of a sexiness kit.

Electra recently said that the best way to snare a man is to keep a ‘sexiness kit’ with you at all times. “Keep a sexiness kit in the car or in a drawer at work with the essentials in it — perfume, lip gloss, and a pair of heels because they’ll help you showcase your legs better.

Knowing you look hot also boosts your all-around confidence,” said the Baywatch babe.

Sawant completely agrees with Electra and says, “If I am wearing an evening gown, I’ll make sure I am not wearing a bra. I hate wearing it,” says the item girl who admits that she would, however, “wear a panty”.

“My lips are very pouty, my eyes are very sexy and my face is very glamorous.” She would besides keeping a bra at bay like to accentuate her assets with a nude lip gloss, mascara and eyebrow powder to make the eyebrows thicker and darker. The item girl also feels that a woman should always smell good. “Ladki main khusboo na ho, to mazaa nahi aayega.”

And her seduction tool is a D&G perfume.

The X-factor
While Sawant’s kit is loaded or rather unloaded with some ‘essentials’, actress Soha Ali Khan doesn’t need to lug around with one.

“My sexiness kit is always with me because it’s in my personality,” says the actress.

For Khan, sexiness primarily lies in one’s personality and then comes any other tangible item. “At the most, kajal comes handy. It helps sex up your look as they says eyes are the windows to your soul.”

Echoes actress and anchor Pooja Bedi, “Sexiness is inherent. You can beautify yourself with cosmetic surgeries, but that X-factor cannot be achieved with the help of tangible products.” Bedi’s votes go for a well groomed, clean and a happy person.

Model Sonalika Sahay moves beyond the kajal, lip gloss routine and calls for a kit that is rather huge. “A bright, flashy car would do the trick. Men are suckers for cars. They go for details like the wheels and the colour,” says Sahay and adds a red sedan works wonders.

“Besides the car, a watch is very feminine. Perhaps a Dior watch should be a must have in your kit,” she says.

Anjelina Jolie in Vanity fair

Friday 6 June 2008


Angelina Jolie shares her innermost feelings about life, love, marriage, and her career with writer Rich Cohen. The full story will be available on VF.com on Monday, but in the meantime here is an exclusive preview of her frank remarks about birth, babies, nannies, and more.

Angelina Jolie on being pregnant:“I love it. It makes me feel like a woman. It makes me feel that all the things about my body are suddenly there for a reason. It makes you feel round and supple, and to have a little life inside you is amazing. Also, I’m fortunate. I think some women have a different experience depend-ing on their partner. I think that affects it. I happen to be with somebody who finds pregnancy very sexy. So that makes me feel very sexy.”

Angelina Jolie on her international family:“When I was growing up I wanted to adopt, because I was aware there were kids that didn’t have parents. It’s not a humanitarian thing, because I don’t see it as a sacrifice. It’s a gift. We’re all lucky to have each other. I look at Shiloh—because, obviously, physically, she is the one that looks like Brad and I when we were little—and say, ‘If these were our brothers and sisters, how much would we have known by the time we were six that it took into our 30s and 40s to figure out?’ I suppose I’m giving them the childhood I always wished I had.”

Angelina Jolie on Shiloh’s birth:“We were in this little hospital in Africa when Shi was born. I don’t think there was anybody else in the hospital. It was just a little cottage, the three of us. It ended up being the greatest thing…. I had a C-section and I found it fascinating. I didn’t find it a sacrifice and I didn’t find it a painful experience. I found it a fascinating miracle of what a body can do.”

Angelina Jolie on nannies:“We don’t ever have anybody spend the night. We may have to adjust that when the next one comes. But we do have ladies that work with us, and they’re also from different cultures and back-grounds. One lady’s a Vietnamese teacher—wonderful. One is of Congolese descent from Bel-gium. Another is from the States and is really creative and does art programs.”

Angelina Jolie on artists as parents:“Artists raise their kids differently,” she said. “We communicate to the point where we probably annoy our children. We have art around the house, we have books, we go to plays, we talk. Our focus is art and painting and dress-up and singing. It’s what we love. So I think you can see how artists in some way raise other artists.”

Tom cruise and Katic Holmes spend $100,000 for the birthday party of suri, their girl!

Thursday 24 April 2008
That's called spending without a second thought.. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes spend $100,000 on their two year old daughter suri's birthday party, and that isn't so unnatural. But then just 24 people attended!

"Suri adores butterflies. It was immediate family and their closest friends only. There were no celebrities invited to the daytime bash," said the source.

They decided on butterflies as the party theme and most of the house was filled with fresh flowers that costed them than more than $17,000. cakes costed them $5,000 and cupcakes, another $230. $45,000 or more was spent on the catering bill for the two parties.

So here's where our question, what cost them the $$$? has been answered.. But most important is that suri enjoyed herself and why wouldn't she? shes a lucky girl:)

Dhoni has many fans from bollywood itself!

Indian One-Day cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's performance on the pitch and his good looks have earned him a huge female fan following, among them a bevy of Bollywood actresses. Here's what they say:

Bipasha Basu: Dhoni is great at his job and he is a good ambassador of our country. He is well groomed and I find him soft-spoken and charming. And I don't think he uses his popularity for the wrong reasons.

Esha Deol: Yup, I'd say Dhoni is terrific and he conducts himself with plenty of dignity. Right now I think he's at his best - physically fit and raring to go. I'd say he is the best sportsman in our country today.

Nandana Sen: Dhoni has great focus, speaks his mind freely. Although he is super-talented, he talks like a very regular guy. I find normalcy in superstars very attractive.

Raima Sen: Cricketers have always been more popular than stars. I feel Dhoni's main charm lies in the fact that he has become the captain of the Indian cricket team at such a young age. And then he brought the (Twenty20) Cup home. That did the trick. Success is the greatest aphrodisiac. It sure has added sex appeal to Dhoni's personality. And let's not forget his hip hairstyle. Wow!

Kangana Ranaut: I think Dhoni is hot enough to give any of our studs from Bollywod a run for their money. And since Dhoni can run faster than any of them, he has an extra edge. Of course, I find him hot. Which normal hot-blooded girl wouldn't?

Minissha Lamba: In any industry, whether it is cinema or cricket, we need to focus on people's achievements rather than wonder how far their sex appeal goes. Success is sexy. And everyone has the right to look his best. But physical beauty shouldn't be allowed to eclipse the value of his real personality or the fact that he has put the country on the international sports map.

Mona Singh: I find Dhoni super hot. He not only looks good but plays well too. And he is a superb captain.

Divya Dutta: Oh, I find Dhoni very hot, specially his passion for living on the edge, not playing safe or getting tense while taking crucial decisions. He is so full of energy. And he is a fabulous cricketer. Of course, the bare chest is the icing on the cake.

Gul Panag: Dhoni? Ha! He's a heady mix of good looks, success and power.

Amrita Arora: Yes, he's hot, but only as a player, please. His good personality teamed with being an excellent player makes him a force to reckon with.

Perizaad Zorabian: The fact that Dhoni comes from a small town and has beaten all odds to make it big makes him very sexy. He comes across as determined, calm, confident and no-nonsense. He takes pride in who he is. These qualities make him stand apart in a world of self-promoting wannabes.

Saif has fake or unreal love for kareena?

Sunday 30 March 2008


Saif had expressed his love for Kareena in various ways she seemed quite impressed of, like the huge tattoo on his arm (just like what David Beckham did for Victoria), spelled 'Kareena'. But recent news stated that his tattoo is unreal and he gets it dyed weekly to maintain its color. Oh my god that's going to hurt Kareena, saif!

Recently the duo were seen being argumentative on the proposal of marriage from saif, as kareena is in no mood to tie the knot especially at the peak of her blooming career. And her mom and dad aren't going to agree either.. Now things could get worse with the fake love tattoo news being spread all over town

Now you get to decide, the Tattoo rumour or saifs love is true or untrue;)

Twinkle Bajpai to be sacked

You wont be getting to see Twinkle Bajpai acting in Laxmi of Ghar Ki Lakshmi… Betiyan anymore! Now that's news:) According to me, as Twinkle plays the main character in the serial, obviously the script demands her the most and whether zee accepts it or not, the show is popular because of Twinkle and not Laxmi(her character)!

Sanghamitra Panigrahi, creative head of the show, says, “Twinkle has been behaving in a very unprofessional manner. She would not give enough time to the show and the shoot was held up. She had a take-it-or-leave-it attitude and her equation with the rest of the co-stars was getting affected. The quality of the show was suffering. Also, we have suffered financial losses. We had no option but to scout for a replacement. We are scared to experiment with her any longer. Our show is the top priority for us and it is not dependent only on one person.”

Twinkle has lashed back at the Zee serial team, saying, “I have been blamed d for not giving enough time to the show and walking out of the sets, but it is untrue. Apart from 14 hours on my scheduled days, I give 8 hours extra on my non-blocked days. In the past six month I have taken only five days off, I’ve not been able to go to Lucknow, (my hometown) for Holi. I have not been able to appear for my BA final exams. This is a thankless job. I’m neglecting my health and I keep falling sick and hospitalised because of the stress. In spite of me putting in extra hours they blame me for all the delay. I can’t take it anymore. It’s ok if I’m replaced by someone else.”

Gunjan Walia is the new laxmi.

Aishwarya Rai cold-shoulders Sweta Menon, a former friend of hers


Aishwarya Rai recently cold-shouldered actress Shweta Menon at the launch of Sikander Khers debut film 'Summer 2007'. It seemed that Ash wasn't that keen on returning the friendly gesture by hugging Sweta back, when they recently met at the party.A 'Hi' was all she said to her.

On being roommates for the whole one month rehearsal period during the miss India pageant, and they also shared a great friendship after the pageant, this unacceptable behaviour of Ash obviously disheartened Sweta and she left the party in disappointment.

The communication gap widened with Ash being busy with her new found career in films and glamor world, while Sweta also short to fame acting in bollywood films and down south. But it was Ash that climbed the ladder to all heights of success, so now whose the proud one? we can all see. It isn't always what we think someone to be, times change and people change too, Sweta!! Ash is or isn't an exception?

Has Saif proposed to kareena?

A source close to the couple informs that Saif Ali Khan popped the question to girlfriend Kareena Kapoor.

We''re told that after his performance at the rock do, Saifu called up Bebo, who is still in the land of Alexander shooting for Tashan. And after he had finished narrating his experience with the band, Saifu asked Bebo the shaadi ka sawaal.

But knowing Bebo, she must have told him to take it easy.. and give their relationship some more time.. before taking the vows.

Smart gal... Given that she's the prime contender for all the Best Actress Awards this year for her feisty performance in Jab We Met.. and has some good films to follow up, why should she settle down in ghar-grihasti, na?

Interview with oscar winner director , claude lelouch

One of France’s most popular directors, Claude Lelouch, who won two Oscars for Un Home Et Une Femme (A Man And A Woman), was in India for the French Film Festival. His most recent film, Crossed Tracks, which was screened at the festival, was another enormously popular thriller. Though he could not speak a word of English he put across his ideas perfectly through a translator…
What is the most important aspect in a French thriller, say like your film Crossed Tracks?
The story! I for one am terribly inspired by real-life situations for all my films including thrillers. My film Crossed Tracks was inspired from a real-life situation and is about two women, one a femme fatale and the other a romantic and how they change a man’s life drastically.
What is the difference between French cinema and Indian cinema?
I see a huge difference between the two! Indian films are made for the masses, so they are dramatic and loud. French cinema on the other hand is made for the elite and is what could be called intelligent cinema. The general public here may not appreciate it.

Is there a possibility of merging the two?
Definitely! I would take one Indian actor and one French star. It would be interesting to see how we can mix the exuberance of Indian actors with the sobriety of French artistes. I would shoot half the film in India and half in France. The French like Hollywood musicals so I would add some dance and music from Indian films. I would decide on the casting after working on the script. But I think Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is very beautiful and magnificent!

When we say French we think of fashion and style. What comes to your mind when someone says India?
Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru and Indira Gandhi! In fact Gandhi is like the Eiffel Tower of India!

You have got two Oscars for your film A Man And A Woman. How can the Oscars change the life of a filmmaker?
It can give a filmmaker total liberty. When I got the Oscar, I felt like a slave who has been liberated. I had complete freedom to experiment with various subjects and it reassured me completely as a filmmaker!



What are you currently working on?
It’s called Ces Annees La, a romantic musical.

Anjelina and Brad could make millions out of their baby pictures

If Celebity Christina Anguilera demanded 1.5 million for pics of her newborn son Max, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's 6 million new twins, Max and Emme can Anjelina demand much more?

People paid Christina Aguilera a reported 1.5 million dollars National Enquirer Executive Editor Barry Levine said that the whole process had become a big business nowadays, with magazines going the extra mile to make sure the paparazzi don't obtain the photos.

"It's become big business now. It's outrageous, they've gotten very sophisticated. The rights are bought up now even before the celeb enters the hospital. They hire extra security so it's impossible to obtain a photo illegally," the New York Post quoted him, as saying.

Added American Media Editorial Director Bonnie Fuller: "If J.Lo really did get $6 million, then I think Angelina can now command 8 million USD. I can't think at this point who could command more money than Brangelina."
