John Abraham changed course from an actor to a singer on Wednesday, May 28, when he performed live in Bandstand, Bandra, in the Western suburb of Mumbai. The actor sang the song, Ab Hai Ujala, from his latest film, Aashayein, as the crowds cheered and girls were absolutely delighted.
“It was simply crazy. I think we underestimated John’s pull and his pursuit of excellence. I thought he’d come on stage croon a few lines, shake his hips in tight trousers, blow kisses and melt into the night. No way,” told Elahi Hiptoolah, executive producer of Aashayein.
John left the audiences spellbound after his performance, also, the director Nagesh Kukunoor joined him when audience compelled John to sing once more. â€œWe hadn’t planned a big music launch and we certainly had no clue there was another music launch the same evening. We just wanted to do something different. So we thought of making all the singers including John perform their tracks from Aashayein live on stage. We never thought there would be such a massive turn-out, or that John would take his first live performance so seriouslyâ€ she added.
Actor Aftab Shivdasani whose new movie â€˜De Taaliâ€™ is set for a release seems to have worked very hard for it.

Faffy was so full of enthu that he worked for 72 hours continuously and showed no signs of tiredness even in 73rd hour.
Hats off to Aftab!!

Farah Khan, who is savoring the joys of being a mother, has decided to take a break from film-making this year. Farah, married to editor turned director, Shirish Kunder, gave birth to triplets in February. In her 40s, Mother of two daughters, Diva and Anya and a son Czar, she had to wait for very long to get into this role.
â€œDoing a film takes too much time. A whole year is needed to put it together.â€says Farah.
For time being, she is enjoying her role as a judge on TV show â€˜Jo jeeta wahi sikanderâ€™ and will return to movies after a year.
Just when we thought it was going going gone, Kareena has bounced back with a size one figure. Kareena who is currently shooting with Salman Khan in Australia has finally started binging on food. The hectic shooting schedules keep her busy while, lessening her workout time. Fashion designer Manish Malhotra who has signed up Kareena as the show stopper for his collection was heard saying â€œnow that she is a size one, I have to work doubly hard to get the clothes to fit perfectlyâ€.
The upcoming IIFA, to be held at Bangkok from June 6-8 will see Kareena shaking a leg on some hit numbers and walking the ramp for Manish. The designer who has done makeovers of many Bollywood stars will present a bridal collection at IIFA 2008. He discloses â€œ, I am looking forward to the international Indian platform that will allow me to showcase my art. I will be using 15 female models and 5 male models. But right now, I am concentrating on Kareena.â€
While Kareena will fly to Bangkok only a few hours before the show, anxious Manish is trying hard, contemplating with designs that will best accentuate Beboâ€™s new figure!!
Soha Ali Khan has discovered a new passion it seems. She is hell bent on taking the crown of the â€˜Cover Queenâ€™ from Bollywoodâ€™s new found diva Kareena Kapoor. Barely had we come out of the shock with Soha shedding her inhibitions (and clothes) for Maxim, that we have yet another cover story from Soha in the fashion magazine â€˜Elleâ€™. Attired in a feminine pink robe, Soha leaves no temptation unexplored with those sensuous eyes of her. Check out Soha in a femme fatale mode with Elle.
She shot to fame with her launch in the hit flick â€˜Aap Ka Suroorâ€™ opposite Himesh Reshammiya. However, she had already tasted success as a child artist. Just a teenager not touching the eighteen year old category, Hansika Motwani has dreams flying high.
The sexy teenager has bought herself a brand spanking new car, even though she is not legally allowed to drive yet. So, now she is the proud owner of a Honda Civic (we envy) but will have to wait to get behind that tempting wheel. Till then, her driver will escort her around. Not bad again!

Besides this, Vashu has things going at other scenes too. He is launching his son Jackie in â€˜Kal Kisne Dekhaâ€™, which is directed by Vivek Sharma. He has also signed Abhishek for a yet untitled film to be directed by Apoorva Lakhia. Well, we have things on a move for Bhagnani, it seems!
Blogging which seems to be the latest trend in Bollywood is affecting one and all. After Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan its Salman Khan who is writing blogs for Sony. Indeed, it is a publicity gimmick of his new game show on TV â€œDus ka Dumâ€™â€™.
Salman who is busy shooting in Australia for Prem Soniâ€™s directorial film â€˜Main Aur Mrs Khanna, despite being busy, managed to write the blog from there.
Vikas Kapoor his manager says â€œSalman Bhai is used to working in tight schedules. He has started blogging for Sony as they requested him to write. He has just started blogging and the response is excellent. This is for the first time that he is interacting through his blog and seems he is enjoying too.â€
Salman who is always associated with some or the other controversy is writing his heart out in his blogs. This is for the first time he is talking to public in detail. â€œAll my decisions are based on my instinct and some people think that I am too moody and cynical. But believe me I have been guided by my instincts, and my heart, all my life! I do not depend too much on intelligence, analysis and calculations…â€ says Salman.
He feels that the show Dus ka Dum is his tribute to public who has been watching his films since 19 years and has shown him love and respect â€œthis is not merely a show, but my Shukrana… …â€, Salman admitted.
After Om Shanti Omâ€™s petite actress Deepika Padukone, it is the Anushka Sharma, who will be seen as King Khanâ€™s costar in “Rab ne bana di Jodi“. Like Deepika, she also hails from Bangalore.Â She is quite luck to have support of Aditya Chopra and SRK like as Deepika who was backed up well by SRK and Farah to get an initial break in tinsel town.
The actress from Bangalore is a model and made several appearances in many TV commercials. Pursuing graduation in economics from Bangalore, she was showstopper in Wendell Roderickâ€™s show at Lakme Fashion week this year.Â â€œIt was her beautiful expressive eyes which made me select her as my showstopperâ€ said Roderick.
Even Yash Copra has lots of applauds for her, according to him, she fits perfect for the role, “We were looking first and foremost for someone who could truly embody the spirit of small town Punjab and we know we have found her in Anushka and while she has no previous acting experience, we have seen that unique spark in her that makes us confident that she will be a standout even opposite Shah Rukh,”
“Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi” that is scheduled for shooting from May 16 will hit theatres worldwide on Dec 12. While discussing about the film Shah Rukh said, â€œThe first day of shooting is what gave me goose bumps like nothing else and to make films with Yash Raj, that too when Adi is directing, is an experience that is more than 100% excitingâ€.
So , lets keep our fingers crossed for another Yash Raj venture!!
The aspirations of the Australian Star Tania Zaettaâ€™s to make headway in Bollywood received severe blow after the publication of alleged news in Indiaâ€™s two largest circulated dailies about her involvement in sex scandal with Australian soldiers in Afghanistan.
The news has also gained prominent focus on the face page of entertainment websites as well.Â The story featured on the HindustanTimes.com under title, “Who dares loses. Starlet Tania romped with troops in war zone.”
On the news published in the newspapers Zattea expressed apprehension that this could tarnish her career in Bollywood that she make after working hard for previous 10 years.Â She has been quite active in character roles and Bunty aur Babli and Salaam Namaste were big hits in India. In an interview, she told that her desire was to work beyond the image of an â€œitem girlâ€. But there is still doubt, how Hollywood would treat this incident.
