Well, this is another one to the long list of cat fights between actresses, only that the reason this time is a hot pink dress which caught the fancy of two gorgeous actresses, Deepika Padukone and Chitrangada Singh who are working together in ‘Desi Boyz’. Apparently designer Ayesha Dasgupta had created a hot pink outfit for the film and both Deepika and Chitrangada wanted it for themselves.
Confirms Ayesha, “It was quite a complement for me actually. We made some outfits for the film. I had no idea both the girls would like the dress so much that it would become such a huge issue.”
Eventually director Rohit Dhawan had to intervene and request the actresses to stop fighting over the issue. However, who finally got to wear the outfit, is yet to be revealed!!
SRK has once again managed to do something which only he can do. Yes, he is bringing together arch rivals Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra on stage to perform with him at an Eid event in Dubai. Together would be music maestros Hariharan and Shankar Mahadevan. This five day long event in Dubai will have everything for entertainment right from adventure sports, shopping to leisure activities.
Priyanka Chopra and Kareena Kapoor are known for their ugly spats and catfights. In fact, the two actresses never share formal greetings with each other at award functions or other events. However, they have agreed to come together this time as both of them are awaiting the release of their mega projects- Kareena Kapoor in Ra.One and Priyanka Chopra in Don 2.
Further, when it comes to King Khan, not many can dare to refuse him!!
Kalki Koechlin was last seen in ‘Shaitan’ and she received mixed reviews for her performance in the film. Now, she has her eyes set on much awaited ‘Zindagi Mile Na Dobara’. Recently, gossip columns have been abuzz with the news of Kalki having complex with her co-star Katrina Kaif and that she doesn’t get along well with her.
However, Kalki has strongly denied such rumors and says, “There have been a lot of people picking on us that me and Kat are fighting. I think it is really sad because not one person has come and asked me what I think, they have just kind of assumed. There are no issues.”
Kalki has been actively participating in the promotional campaign of the film and was seen at the PVR Cinemas in Ambience mall, Gurgaon, along with Hrithik Roshan, Abhay Deol, Farhan Akhtar, Katrina Kaif, director Zoya Akhtar and Farhan’s production partner Ritesh Sidhwani.
Kalki’s next project is once again with her Dev D co-star Abhay Deol and she claims that the movie is a different one. “I don’t want to be labelled or trapped, my job is to change and adapt to everything that comes. And it’s exciting that I am doing something different,” she said.
Since the time the title track of Rohan Sippy’s Dum Maro Dum picturized on Deepika Padukone came into conception, it has constantly generated controversies. First it was Dev Anand who accused the makers of not having contacted him about the rights of the song from his 1970s blockbuster Hare Rama Hare Krishna. Then, the Goan Government accused the song of portraying Goa as a place associated with drugs and mafia.
Now, the latest accusation comes from the leading lady of the movie, Bipasha Basu, who is apparently annoyed because the makers of the film have chosen Deepika grooving to the song for the first look of the film instead of Bips. Reports also have it that when Bipasha learnt about the poster she was not very happy and called Rohan Sippy who explained his promotional strategy to her.
Rohan Sippy explained, “Deepika is doing a title song of the film. On the teaser poster you can hardly recognise Deepika. It’s brand Dum Maaro Dum and Bipasha is the female lead of the film. But I guess that’s what happens with guest numbers and with iconic songs.”
when asked. Bipasha denied any controversy of any sort and said, “I was the first one to tweet about the first look of DMD because I loved it and am super excited about our film. Deepika is a super dancer and has done total justice to our song. There are no controversies here.”
Meanwhile you check out the stills from the song……….
This is not the first time that the Bollywood celebrities top the list of those who have tax payments due and nonetheless, it shocks us no less. Bollywood actors have larger than life images and their fans adore and look up to them.
Among the celebs who feature in the list of Stamp Duty Evasion list are cricketer Sachin Tendulkar and Bollywood actors like Kareena Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Fardeen Khan and Suneil Shetty feature in the Stamp Duty evasion list. These celebrities are most sought after names in the advertisement world and have signed mega endorsement deals between the period of 2006 – 2009. Under article 5(H)(A) of the Bombay Stamp Act 1958, duty needs to be paid on signing any endorsement contract, this duty can either be paid by the company itself or the celebrity that is endorsing the product.
For the year 2008, Bipasha Basu had Rs. 37,500 due as the stamp duty. Her penalty due was Rs. 48,750 which makes her total outstanding (as of 2008) dues as Rs. 86,250. For the same year, Kareena Kapoor had her stamp duty due at Rs.1,85,000. Her penalty due was Rs.1,31,450 which made her total outstanding (as of 2008) dues to Rs. 3,16,450. It is high time that Bollywood stars realize their social and legal responsibilities.
This year’s most hot and sexy item numbers ‘Munni Badnaam Hui’ from Dabangg and Sheila Ki Jawani’ from Tees Maar Khan rock the chart busters. Their magic seems to be spread all over the place.
However, according to few sources, Sheila has been giving tough competition to Munni. People are up to even comparing them!
“I can’t comment as I haven’t seen the song but just heard it. Apart from both being choreographed by Farah, both are completely different songs in terms of look and music. There are no similarities otherwise. Farah has done a fantastic job on both songs. I love her work and I am a big fan of hers but Munni will always remain my favourite as it’s our (Arbaaz and Malaika) song and part of Dabangg! It’s our film and I love the song to death! Nothing is better than our film and song…. My loyalties go without saying (sic). It’s not just any song but the best and the audience liked it.” Said Malika
“Firstly, I feel there is no need for comparisons. Such things shouldn’t be taken seriously or dissected but laughed about. Also I would like to make one correction here. I am the lead actress in the film and have done four out of the five songs in the film while Malaika did Munni as an item song and a guest appearance. I’ve heard Munni and it’s fantastic. There’s no point comparing both the songs as Munni was choreographed on a set resembling a basti (slum) and was shot outdoors. It had a different rustic feel to it while Sheila is shot indoors and has a Chicago feel to it.” says Katrina
The battle heats up further as on New Year’s Eve this year, Sheila and Munni are all set to clash at different branches of the same hotel. While Malaika Arora Khan will be performing to Munni Badnaam Hui at the Sahara hotel in Amby Valley Katrina Kaif is all set to perform at the same hotel in Juhu.
Time and again, Bollywood stars have faced uncomfortable situations and have raised objections when some persistent fans have tried to click their shots despite their protests. This time this unpleasant situation was faced by Anushka Sharma and Ranveer Singh, the lead cast of ‘Band Baja Baraaat’ when they were in Kingfisher Mumbai-Delhi flight.
Two co-passengers, an IPS officer and another a former Maharashtra cadre IAS officer, clicked some photographs of Anushka in spite of her objections and this led to a heated argument ending up in a scuffle when they reached to terminal. After landing in Delhi, the two passengers were given separate vehicles when they requested the same to the Kingfisher staff to go to the terminal. Ranveer barged into the vehicle and entered into a fight at the airside and Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officials had to intervene.
When the issue could not be settled, both the parties were brought to Palam Police station. “Anushka didn’t come to the police station and a representative from Kingfisher airline along with Ranveer came to Palam Police station. The other two were also ready to file a counter complaint. Later, both the parties resolved the matter,” said a police officer.
Shweta Tiwari and Dolly Bindra are known not to be in good terms with each other when the latter had an ugly fight with Shweta’s ex-husband Raja Chaudhary at a party where Raja allegedly hit her. So, it was not a welcome fact for Shweta when Bindra entered the ‘Big Boss’ house recently.
To add to her woes, Dolly encroached on her territory of the kitchen and has been trying to run things her way there. Dolly is known for her culinary skills and since she has impressed the housemates with this skill of hers, she seems to be a strong rival for Shweta as the captain of the house. Shweta has expressed her desire to quit from the kitchen team. Things heated up when both got into argument on whether or not men should be involved in kitchen work. The fight took an ugly turn with both hurling accusations on each other.
The viewers are awaiting much more masala as the housemates decide to boycott Dolly for use of insulting language and Dolly bent on getting her old dues cleared with Tiwari.
The tension between Bollywood hottie Neetu Chandra and Paksiatni comedian and actress Veena Malik came to the forefront when Veena allegedly charged Neetu for having intimate direct links with her ex-boyfriend and Pakistani bowler Mohammad Asif as well as with the ‘spot-fixing’ scandal in cricket.
Now, there are chances that the two actresses could come face to face to exchange verbal blows as Neetu Chandra has been approached for the fourth season of ‘Big Boss’. Neetu is said to have been offered an astronomical amount to appear on the show and Veena’s name is already among the list of contestants for the show.
When asked about her appearance in ‘Bigg Boss’, Neetu’s publicist Dale Bhagwagar said, “I have also been hearing the buzz, but am yet to confirm with Neetu. I haven’t spoken to her, as I’m aware that she is in rehearsals today and her phone would be on silent mode. I’m not sure if Neetu would agree to be in ‘Bigg Boss’ even if the monies are huge.”
Dale also feels that Neetu does not need to waste her time and energy on people like Veena to clear off baseless allegations on her regarding the cricket scandal. He said, “Veena Malik is a good comedian. She is a good actress. But I doubt if Neetu Chandra needs a reality show to defend herself. If I know her well, she’d rather keep her grace, poise and dignity intact, than spend her time and energies on Veena Malik’s baseless allegations.”
Whether the allegations are true or not, it is unconfirmed but what is for sue is that if Neetu joins in the Big Boss house, the tension and cat fights between the two ladies are sure to spice up the show
Sonam Kapoor’s ‘Aisha’ may have added another link to her list of flops but the girl definitely is on the like list of most of the film makers. She is already going to wrap up Anees Bazmee’s Thank You, which is being shot in Canada. And now, she has agreed to be part of Abbas Mustan’s version of the Hollywood film The Italian Job opposite Abhishek Bachchan, her co-star in ‘Delhi 6’.
The role was earlier meant to be played by Katrina Kaif but the actress ditched the makers due to date problems. It was here that stylish Sonam Kapoor stepped in. With the kind of fan following Sonam Kapoor has managed to make and also with Neil Nitin Mukesh and Bobby Deol starring as well, the movie is surely going to make some stirs.
It is not long back when Priyanka Chopra claimed on a talk show that she was good friends with Katrina Kaif . So, when it came out that Katrina Kaif walked out of Anurag Basu’s next as soon as Priyanka Chopra was also chosen to be a part of the cast, it definitely raised quite a few brows. This film had Ranbir and Katrina in the lead roles. Later, Priyanka Chopra was also added to the cast and it was then when Katrina backed out.
However, the reason is definitely not the cat-fight or any sort of rivalry between the two actresses. Sources say that Katrina is interested only in those films which have her as the solo heroine. “I am not saying I won’t do films with other leading ladies, but for now, I’m happy in the space I am. Why should I unnecessarily rock the boat? And yes, I am finally about to lock the deal to produce my film. It’s a fabulous role and I’ve been angling for the remake rights for quite some time. I’d like to get down to it as soon as possible,” said Katrina.
Also, Katrina has finally got the rights to produce the remake of a French film and she needs time to work on this personal and close to her heart project. In the film, she will be playing a “scheming gold-digger.” Besides, she is also working on Farah Khan’s Tees Marr Khan and has Zoya Akhtar’s next and Dostana 2 lined up in a row.
Too much going on the professional life of this pretty lady at present!!
Neetu Chandra had replaced Raima Sen for the hot and sultry role in the forthcoming ‘Rann’. Once again, Chandra has snatched a role from Bong beauty Raima Sen, this time in Jag Mundhra’s forthcoming thriller ‘Apartment’. The movie will see Neetu playing a simple girl for a change and also stars ex-miss universe Tanushree Dutta, Anupam Kher and Rohit Roy.
The story of the movie goes as:
Preeti Sengupta (Tanushree Dutta) is an airhostess living in with her boyfriend Karan Malhotra (Rohit Roy). They share a nice 2BHK apartment in the northern suburbs of Mumbai and are befriended by their elderly neighbor Madhusudan Tanha (Anupam Kher), a struggling poet and lyricist.
When Preeti suspects Karan’s fidelity and throws him out of her apartment, she advertises for a tenant to share her apartment. Enter Neha Bhardwaj (Neetu Chandra), a modest small-town girl asking for accommodation. The two girls soon become close until things begin to go disastrously wrong – slowly and steadily and Neha and Preeti are torn apart by suspicion, deceit and betrayal.
Will the movie revive Neetu Chandra’s sinking career and make Raima Sen regret the loss, only time will tell……
