Vivek Oberoi is awaiting the release of his next flick ‘Rakta Charitra’ with RGV and is busy with its promotions these days, but the actor has already another project ready for him.
If the sources are to be believed, Oberoi has been approached by the producers for hosting ‘Big Boss 4’ after the offer was turned down by Big B and SRK. Earlier Vivek had also been approached for the new season of ‘Swayamvar’ after Rakhi Sawant and Rahul Mahajan.
However, the news could be just rumors as sources close to him say with confidence that Vivek has no such plans in mind. A source close to him said, “What? Vivek is hosting ‘Big Boss’? Now that’s some news because Vivek is definitely not doing the show. Yes, there have been some murmurs around him hosting the show but none of that is true.”
“It can be stated with confidence that Vivek is not even remotely contemplating getting into television. He has things to look forward to in the world of movies. There is Rakta Charitra getting ready for release. Also, there is a film happening with Mani Ratnam. He would like to totally concentrate on that rather than getting his attention diverted to other mediums,” he added.
There is no denying the fact that Katrina Kaif’s beauty is so bewitching and magical that she leaves everyone speechless no matter what part of world she is in. Recently, the pretty actress was in Spain for the shoot of Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Zindagi Mile Na Dobara’. The movie has quite a few sequences being shot there.
When the lady was filming for the shoot of a bullfight there in Pampelona, the matadors present could not resist her charm. They refused to leave until she met with them. Two of them even proposed to Kats, who obliged them with a gala dinner with her.
Katrina Kaif has also done belly dance for a number in Farah Khan’s next project titled “Tees Mar Khan.” In a statement released to the media, Farah Khan, said that the actress were not only good to work with, but also came as a big surprise.
Well!! Bold and sexy Mallika Sherawat has gone a step bolder for the promotion of her forthcoming flick ‘Hissss’ directed by Hollywood’s Jennifer Lynch, and co-starring Irrfan Khan and Divya Dutta.
The voluptuous babe has posted her topless photo on the popular social networking site covering her assets with bare hands and flowing tresses. She gives out a sultry look with kohl painted eyes and arms covered in scaly snake design.
The pic is accompanied with tweets from Sherawat like, “…my “topless pic shud giv eternal life…” and “is this too much?”
After Sherlyn Chopra and Mallika Sherawat, ‘Twitter’ seems to be the final destination for our desi babes shedding their inhibitions…..
Rahul Mahajan is known for his fickle-mindedness and flirtatious ways which was all too public in ‘Big Boss 2’ where he two-timed with Payal Rohatgi and Monica Bedi. Now, his just a few months old marriage is bearing the brunt as Mahajan has gone back to chasing his ex-flame Payal Rohatgi with incessant messages at odd hours.
It may be mentioned here that Rahul’s relationship with Payal was marred with his open flirt with Monica Bedi in the house of Big Boss, so much so that Payal even vacated the apartment Rahul had once gifted her.
Where Rahul seems to be longing for a second chance, Payal is utterly furious at his attitude and has openly come out with her anger.
Confirming the news, Payal said, “What Rahul is doing by calling and sending me messages is very irritating. I am done with him. I don’t live in the past.” Payal also revealed that Rahul had previously offered to pay her Rs 1 crore just to be one of the contestants of his nation wide ‘Swayamvar’.
“The most difficult period was when I was housed in Bigg Boss 2. I realised his true colours there,” said Payal adding that she has no feelings left for Rahul now.
“Please! He is a married man and I am not in touch with him. We used to be friends but that was a long time ago. He also offered to pay me Rs 1 crore to be a part of it. You see, he wanted a friend around. But I was used enough in ‘Bigg Boss 2’ to know better,” she said.
With more and more film makers opting for foreign locales, the scenic beauty of our desi hill stations seems deprived of glittering film stars these days. Manali, which once had been the fav destination for romantic numbers had last seen Bollywood stars only with Vipul Shah’s Akki-Ash starrer ‘Action Replay’.
The hill station has sprung to life once again with the crew of the Jagmohan Mundhra directed NAUGHTY @ FORTY pepping up Manali as they reached here on Sunday with the pretty and young Yuvika Chaudhari. The crew will shoot at various locations including the famous scenic spots of Manali and it’s surroundings, like Solang Valley, snow laden Marhi, the dangerous Rohtang Pass, the incredible Rahla fall, heritage village Nagger along with the extremely picturesque Kothi and Gulaba valley.
With as long as twenty days’ shooting schedule, the locals and tourists of Manali will sure get a taste of filmdom up, close and personal.
Kunal Khemu and Soha Ali Khan’s love affair had always been an open secret. Thoguh the couple never denied their linkup, they never officially admitted it. However, recently the duo felt that there was no point in denying a known fact anymore and so, the two came out candid on their relationship when they were spotted together during the Delhi Couture Week.
Explaining why they chose to open up their affair now, Khemu said that they were not hiding their relationship earlier on either. “It just didn’t make sense to talk about it until we were sure of our feelings. When people were speculating about our relationship we were just hanging out together. We did two films together but we weren’t in a relationship then.”
“Now we’re sure of one another. We’re both private persons. Relationships are complicated. They need space to grow. In any case, I am not the kind to wear my heart on my sleeve,” he added.
Kunal admits to have met Soha’s family twice. He says, “I was in Delhi, so I met them. I’m a big fan of both Sharmila Tagoreji and Pataudi Saab. They represent the pinnacle of the two religions of our country: cinema and cricket.” Not to be left out, Soha has also met Kunal’s parents. “She comes home for dinner sometimes. I told them about Soha. And they left it at that.”
However, he stresses on the fact that marriage is not on their cards right now. “I am not saying no to marriage. But I don’t know about the future. I don’t plan beyond the next two days. I didn’t plan my career. At the moment, I’ve signed no new films.
It’s very important for an actor to be associated with films that will get completed and released. Recently, recession had put a lot of actors out of work. It’s better to be honest about our work.
Both Soha and I need to focus on our careers. I got to do Zakhm when I was a child. I don’t know if I’d ever get a role like that again.”
Soha, too, candidly admitted her relationship and said, “I am seeing a wonderful actor called Kunal Khemu. And he is lovely. It’s not a secret, but it’s not something that I am going around announcing either. You know, we both are young and both are in films, both are exploring films, and we enjoy spending time together. I feel life is incomplete without having someone to share it with. Your happiness is doubled and your sadness, halved, when you share it with someone. It really helps in both situations – happy and sad.”
Wonder if brother Saif Ali Khan going gaga over his relationship with Bebo gave some boost and kick to Soha to get candid about her affair too!!!

The promos of Dabangg are doing rounds on the smaller screen and must say they are creating stirs. Set in Uttar Pradesh, Dabangg is the story of a corrupt police officer Chulbul Pandey, played by Salman Khan. Making debut with the film is Sonakshi Sinha, the daughter of veteran actor and politician Sharughan Sinha. It was Salman who convinced her parents to let her act in Bollywood. The movie has been produced by Salman Khan’s younger brother Arbaaz Khan and directed by Anurag Kashyap’s younger brother Abhinav Kashyap.
Have a look at the comments on the trailor of ‘Dabangg’:
Imran Khan tweeted, ‘Just saw the Dabangg trailer! It looks like SUCH a fun movie. @BeingSalmanKhan is in top form, kicking ass, cracking jokes and dancing.’
Salman’s co star of many films, Preity Zinta added, ‘Dabangg promo rocks! Just saw it and Really liked it!’
Karan Johar tweeted in his praise to Salman’s co-star and newcomer Sonakshi Sinha, ‘You are looking lovely and have rendered that one line superbly in DABANGG!! Welcome to the movies girl!!!’
Here is what Sonakshi tweeted regarding the feedbacks she is getting on her performance, ‘Spoke to 1 of my fav actresses – the awesome Rani Mukherji last nite. said she loved the Dabangg trailer and me in it! on top of the world!’
Hope ‘Dabangg’ repeats the success story of ‘Wanted’ for Sallu Bhai….
Now the 4th season of the popular show, ‘Big Boss’, is facing a host crisis. Since the channel has a policy of not repeating its hosts, they did not approach Big B on the first hand and by the time they realized that getting a good replacement is getting difficult, it was too late because Big B had already committed himself to hosting season 4 of ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’.
Then the channel approached SRK for the role but unfortunately SRK did not have dates as he is already booked for Farhan Akhtar’s ‘Don 2’ with Priyanka Chopra. ‘Colors’ even offered him a larger remuneration than Big B but to no avail.
With no options left, the channel is now trying to get Akshay Kumar to play host on ‘Bigg Boss 4’. And if the Khiladi Kumar turns down the offer too, the viewers will have to do with some non-film celebrity as host.
Talking about Neil Nitin Mukesh, the young star does not seem to be very comfortable with smooch scenes in his film. Be it his first director Sriram Raghavan, who could not convince Neil to kiss Rimi Sen, or his second film, Tera Kya Hoga Johnny, director Sudhir Mishra where Neil was asked to kiss Shahana Goswami and then again his director for ‘Jail’ where the actor refused to lock lips with Mugdha Godse even during a passionate love making scene- all his directors failed to convince Neil to do the act.
However, Pradeep Sarkar, the director of ‘Lafangey Parindey’, made his point clear to Neil that he had to smooch Deepika Padukone for the film as per the demand of the script. Well, so Neil would now be seen smooching Deepika in ‘LP’, and how, we have the little birdie informing us that the lip-lock surely is pretty long and intense. A source from the set said it was a long, torrid smooch comparable in intensity and duration to any sensational smooch scene so far. And guess what! Neil was nervous!
Remember Antara Mali? Yes, the sensuous RGV girl who could not make it big in Bollywood despite her dare-bare act in ‘Naach’ and ‘Mr Ya Miss’ and then went into oblivion post marriage bidding adieu to the tinsel town….
She is back now and with a difference. This time she is not in for a bikini act for a completely deglamourised look in Amol Palekar’s next ‘And Once Again’ where she plays a Buddhist monk. The film is being produced by Sangrila Kreations and also stars Rajat Kapoor and Rituparna Sengupta among others. . The film has been shot in the picturesque locales of Sikkim.
Antara has gone bold yet again for this role but not in the skin show. She has shaved her hair and gone bald for it. The movie deals with the intricacies of man-woman relationship and subtly talks about repercussions of violence on human life and its lingering shadow on all of us with its startling shades.
Well, what RGV’s skimpy clothes could not do for Antara Mali, hope Amol’s hairless avatar does it for her!!!
