28 year old beautiful Sunidhi Chauhan tied knots with childhood mate and music composer Hitesh Sonik in a low profile ceremony. Sunidhi was earlier married to choreographer Bobby Khan but the marriage broke after an year.
“She was a little more than a child when she won the Meri Awaz Suno music contest on television. That is when we became friends. Gradually, over the years as she grew into a fine singer, our friendship blossomed into love,” elaborated Hitesh on their love life.
However, the couple threw a lavish reception party at Taj Lands End in Mumbai and the guest list included Asha bhonsle, Udit Narayan with wife Deepa Narayan, Farah Khan with Vishal Dadlani, Ranvir Shorey, Konkona Sen Sharma, Shaan, Kavita Krishnamurthy and Alka Yagnik.
Sunidhi Chauhan wore a purple saree with heavy work on it while Hitesh opted for an achkan and black pants. Check out a few clicks from the event………….

India has taken Sunny Leone with open arms. The Canadian porn has not been signed for two projects, she has also bagged in her first endorsement deal with Chaze Mobiles and has also completed the shoot for the commercial in Bangkok a few days back.

That Mahesh Bhatt and Soni Razdan’s daughter Alia is making her debut with Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the Year’ is an old one. What few people know is the fact that Alia had first been offered a film by Abhinav Kashyap but Karan Johar’s flick first went on floors.
In this flick, Alia will, in all probability, be paired opposite Ranbir Kapoor. Alia may be quite young compared to Ranbir but her fresh and innocent looks match Ranbir’s persona just perfectly. Ranbir will be seen in an entirely new avatar in the film. His character is that of an uncouth youth from Bihar who turns a tapori in Mumbai.
Meanwhile Alia has already started the shoot for ‘Student of the Year’ in Singapore and if things work out fine, she could be seen alongside Ranbir Kapoor in her next.
The event for the announcement of the 13th IIFA Awards in Singapore was all glamour and glitter as Bollywood stars graced the event. The 13th IIFA Awards will be held for three days in Singapore from June 7 to 9 this year. Being the host for the IIFA the second time, Singapore will celebrate the event with the world premiere of a film, a musical show IIFA Rocks and celebs walking down the IIFA green carpet before the awards night.
Apart from Anil Kapoor, the Bollywood star who made her presence felt was bong beauty Bipasha Basu who looked ravishing as ever in an Anamika Khanna saree teamed with a bustier having intricate work. She accessorized her attire with Amrapali jewellery and a bejeweled handcuff.
Bipasha will perform at the IIFA Awards and said, “I missed out on 2004 Singapore IIFA, so I’m here to make up for it… I’m definitely not going to disappoint audiences and I’m going to give a fabulous performance for Singapore.”
Katrina Kaif took Bollywood by rage with her sizzling number ‘Sheila Ki Jawani’. So, when Zoya Akhtar started her documentary project on 100 years of Bollywood titled ‘Sheila Ki Jawaani’, it was but natural for her to rope in Katrina as Sheila for her film.
Since the documentary tells the story of a guy who is a huge fan of the item number and dreams of meeting Sheila in reality, Zoya chose this particular song from ‘Tees Maar Khan’ as she felt it was just perfect to describe the glamour of the industry and the craziness of the fans for films and stars. Also Katrina Kaif shares a wonderful rapport with Zoya Akhtar with whom she developed god bonding during ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’.
The film will be shot in Mumbai. The film will borrow some portions of the song from the original and Zoya may also shoot the song again if required.
Confirms Katrina, “Yes, I am part of the documentary.”
It was like a thrilling action sequence at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC) when Bollywood stars Anil Kapoor and Ajay Devgan raced in Lamborghinis on Formula 1 track to promote their upcoming flick ‘Tezz’.
Attired smartly in a blue checked shirt and wayfarer shaded, Ajay outdid Anil Kapoor and said, “This is the first time that someone from Bollywood has come up with the idea of promoting a movie on a racing track. It’s very exciting yet innovative.”
Anil Kapoor said, “The highest speed at which we drove today was 260 kmph. I’ve never done such an act before in my life.”
“It’s like an addiction! We drove four laps and still wanted to do more. This track is simply amazing and very smooth,” he added.
Tezz, releasing on April 27, also features Zayed Khan, Boman Irani, Sameera Reddy and Kangna Ranaut. Ajay Devgan, Sameera Reddy and Zayed Khan play illegal immigrants in Britain while Anil Kapoor plays a cop. The movie is directed by Priyadarshan.
“It’s a social drama, thriller and is about a chase between cops and criminals. This is the 84th film of my career. I’ve put all my experience in this movie. The movie also has a thin line of emotions, something similar to Deewaar and Sholay,” said Priyadarshan, who was also present at the track.
Kareena Kapoor is definitely going places. After becoming the endorsement queen, she has also bagged in a substantial role as queen Arundhati in the Hindi remake of 2009 Telugu blockbuster Arundhati. Being a strong role in a woman centric flick, many actresses were eyeing for it. The role of the devil who gets killed by the queen will be played by Sonu Sood.
Gemini Film Circuit has acquired the Hindi remake rights of the film.
Speaking about the role, Kareena Kapoor says, “I am excited to do this that had importance for the female character.” Arundhati is an action thriller with a few gory scenes as well. Anushka Shetty excelled in the character of Arundhati which got her Filmfare Best Actress Award of the year, and also won praises galore.
The Telugu version of the film was a grand success and gave new heights to its leading lady’s career. How much the Hindi version will do justice to it and whether Kareena Kapoor looks convincing enough in the role, is a question of Wait and Watch for us.
Oprah Winfrey shares a special bond with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who has appeared twice on her show. Rumors also have it that Oprah has shot an exclusive episode with the Bachchan Bahu for her show Next Chapter and Aishwarya could be seen along with her daughter in her show.
When Winfrey visited India this January she made it a point to visit Ash and her new born daughter who now has the name Aaradhya. Aishwarya too made Winfrey feel special as she gifted her a Tarun Tahiliani saree which she wore to the Parmeshwar Godrej party, hosted in honour of her. Aishwarya had also made an attendance to this party and this being her first public appearance the paparazzi tried hard to click her but failed to her fans’ disappointment.
Now, Oprah Winfrey has given her fans a glimpse of Aishwarya after her delivery as she posts an image of Aishwarya and herself on twitter, and she writes, “India was a real #NextChapter dream for me. Leaving home of Abishek & Ashwirya having just seen their gorgeous baby.”
The image shows Aishwarya being helped by Abhishek Bachchan and Oprah down the steps. Father-in-law Big B has been snapped walking behind. Check out that image of Aishwarya which our media failed to manage……..
Ever since Saif Ali Khan’s sixteen year old daughter Sara Khan appeared on the covers of ‘Hello!’ a few days back, offers have been flooding in to cast her in movies.
And we cannot blame the filmmakers too as Sara looked utterly pretty and gracious in Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla creation. The very proud Mother Amrita Singh confirms the reports and says, “Five eminent filmmakers called and said they wanted her to be a heroine in their next project.”
However, Amrita further added to say that Sara is quite young now and she has an academic bend. She could either go for a career in medical science or law. Sara’s current plan is to go to Yale and do further studies.
Check out the magazine cover which made Sara a sought after one in Bollywood…..
