Definitely, after a number of Oscar awards nomination for ‘SlumDog Millionaire’ it must have developed an interest for Hollywood stars to act in a movie produced in India and many have started working on projects. Among the stars, who are inline for shooting in Bollywood, the most noted one is ‘Basic Instinct” star Sharon Stone!
51 years old star has agreed to work in a movie titled, ‘Lost Love’ that would be directed by Tapan Saha. Her role is based on character of Maxine from Jhumpa Lahiri’s novel, “The Namesake”. She soon would be busy in shooting for movie in Mumbai and Kolkata to be produced either by Lighthouse or Lionsgate productions along with Sampurn Entertainment. For the shooting of the movie, Tapan Saha would also be co-coordinating with Hollywood script writers as well. Sharon’s character is about a daughter of a rich business family settled in Los Angeles and duped by her Indian boyfriend and her efforts to search for her love on her journey to India.
Such is her airs that not many men in Bollywood can say no when Sex kitten Mallika Sherawat asks for something. Even Big B couldn’t say no to her when she offered to go for jogging in slow motion on National Television.
But finally one man has emerged to have guts to refuse her. Apparently, it is Kay Kay Menon who turned down the role that Mallika offered him in her home production Hisss.
Mallika and Menon have already worked in Sanjay Chhel’s ‘Maan Gaye Moghal-E-Azam’ and in her promotional interviews for the film she openly praised his work. So, when she came upon the question of an actor for an important and intense role in her film, naturally Kay Kay’s name cropped in her mind. She then sent her team over to him with the script.
However, after few days Kay Kay called Mallika and refused the offer saying that the script was definitely interesting and that he was confident that she would make a good film but he cannot see himself in that part that she has offered him in the film.
With SRK adding years, he no longer seems to fit into the romantic Raj image of the Yash Raj camp. So, Yash Raj Films have very wisely decided to move on and have have wasted no time in zeroing on their new Raj – chocolate boy Shahid Kapoor. The Yash Raj camp sees Shahid as the classic romantic hero who has the potential to turn on the sexy or rugged vibe when required.
So, now we have Shahid Kapoor working on two Yash Raj projects in a row- One is Anurag Singh’s ‘Hadippa’ opposite Rani Mukherjee and the other is Parmeet Sethi’s untitled flick where he is paired opposite Anushka Sharma.
SRK gave us some most memorable movies as the Raj of the Yash Raj camp. How far Shahid Kapoor does justice to Raj, only time can tell.
On following Sunday, it would be second innings for the quiz show “10 Ka Dum” as this time there is more expectation from Salman Khan, who really made its first season a big hit. The quiz show once again is set for winning prize of Rs. 10 crore. The show suitable for a family viewing had one of the highest TRPs in Indian Television history. On the first episode of second season on coming Saturday it is Kareena and Karisma Kapoor who are participating in it.
“10 Ka Dum” is starting on, May 30th at 9PM only on Sony Entertainment Television. Below are a few pics from the same show.
Born and brought up in a middle-class Punjabi family in Delhi, model-turned-actress Urvashi Sharma has already acquired a bold and beautiful image for herself with numerous print and television advertisements, music videos like Mika’s ‘Something Something’ and also with sizzling roles in movies like ‘Naqaab’.
She likes taking risks and added to her gutsy reputation during the shooting of ‘Naqaab’ where she opted to do a stunt on a speed boat all by herself. When the cameras started rolling, she went off at breakneck speed and got her crew worried.
Once, again Urvashi has shown her guts by going to the skimpiest clothing in the latest issue of ‘Stardust’ magazine. With Urvashi in such hot pics, no wonder the temperatures are soaring higher each day!
The issue also has added temptations like Saif Ali Khan gracing the cover of the issue, making a claim – “Kareena And I Don’t Intend To stay Engaged Forever” and on the top there is a title which reads, “Shahrukh takes on Shoaib Akhtar’s Threats”.
It was our bad luck not to see Shilpa Shetty performing at IPL season 2 closing night where she was supposed to perform with Katrina Kaif and Akon.
Shilpa says, “I was just not prepared. It was an international platform, not some village nautanki. I had to be fully ready. And I just didn’t get time to rehearse. So I regretfully had to say no. But I’d rather not give anything less than my best when I’m representing my country.”
However Shilpa who is the co-owner of Rajasthan Royals says, “So what if my team wasn’t playing. I think I’m sporting enough to enjoy the game as just a part of the audience.”
Meanwhile, check out Shilpa sizzling on the latest edition of Vogue!

Changing her name did not help Priyanka Kothari aka Nisha Kothari much. She was last seen in a tantalizing item number with Fardeen Khan in ‘Darling’. Her delayed release ‘Go’ went unnoticed and without creating any stir.
Now, it seems she is all set to impress everyone with her forthcoming flick ‘Agyaat’ where she plays the solo female lead. She also has a sizzling dance number in the film titled ‘Kiss Mix’.
“Yes, that’s my song in Agyaat. Don’t you like the sound of ‘Kiss Mix’? I find it quite cute actually; it is just one of it’s own kinds,” says Priyanka.
When the shooting of AGYAAT had come to a standstill, only a few scenes involving Priyanka were waiting to be shot. The earlier plans were to have only song to be picturised but later ‘Kiss Mix’ was added as an after thought.
“This is one song which has excited me so much after a very long time. And before you call it as an item or a promotional number, let me clear this at the very onset that ‘Kiss Mix’ would be very much a part of the film”, says Priyanka.
He had played the character of a photographer in ‘Delhi 6’ and now he is also there in Sonam Kapoor’s upcoming lick ‘Ayesha’. Working in two films together have given Sonam Kapoor and VJ Cyrus Sahukar enough time to know and develop a soft corner for each other.
The Bollywood gossip columns are abuzz with the rumours that Sonam and Cyrus have been seeing each other since the past few months. The foundation of this friendship (read romance) was laid with their first film together ‘Delhi 6’. The two are extremely fond of each other and enjoy spending quality time together. They usually hang out together and were recently spotted together at a suburban restaurant.”
Few months ago, Cyrus had said, “Sonam beats me up randomly. I think she was my doctor in my last life. Whenever I’m a little low, she electrocutes me.”
However, Sonam has denied any kind of truth behinf these rumours, but don’t they truly say that there is no smoke without fire!!

Karisma, on the other hand, said, ‘On Indian television, we have a plethora of reality shows such as talent shows for dancing, singing, etc but ‘Hans Baliye’ gives a platform to real life couples to showcase their talent to a wider audience.
