Madhu Mantena, the producer of ‘Ghajini’ was in dire need of a companion when he broke up with his nine year long mate Nandana Sen. The reason for the split is being cited as Nandana’s plans to move to and settle in New York and the producer’s wish to have a family and settle down here.
Nevertheless, the producer has again found his love, this time in Mugdha Godse. Apparently, Mugdha too was single after her breakup with boyfriend Mithun Purandare. The two got introduced at a party, exchanged numbers and have now headed towards a romantic relationship.
Meanwhile, Mugdha has found her new love not only in Madhu Mantena, but also in colours on her canvas. Yes, the girl is trying her hand at painting and says, “I have been painting for almost a year now. Painting is a good way to take my thoughts and creativity forward. Acting and dancing are the arts we are always involved in, but painting is something new I am trying my hand at.”
Sridevi is making her comeback in Bollywood with ‘English Vinglish’ and the actress was spotted at the launch of the first look and two and a half minute theatrical trailer of the movie ‘English Vinglish’ in the presence of her husband Boney Kapoor, daughters Janhavi and Khushi, film’s producer R. Balki, and director Gauri Shinde.

‘English Vinglish’, which is produced by Hope Productions and distributed by Eros, will be released in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu versions immediately after its world premiere at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in its prestigious gala section. The festival runs through 6 -16th September, 2012. The film also stars French actor Mehdi Nebbou, Adil Hussain, and Priya Anand.

Aamir Khan is known for his nack in perfection and flawless planning. So, it came as a surprise when gossip columns went abuzz with rumors that Aamir’s ambitious project ‘Talaash’ will not hit the screens as per the scheduled date owing to the delay caused because of differences in the creative team.
However, Aamir himself put an end to all rumors saying that everything is moving perfectly well and the film will release on the scheduled date of November 30th.
“I would like to clarify that ‘Talaash’ is releasing as planned on Nov 30th,” Aamir told IANS and added: “Over the last few weeks I have noticed that there have been some attempts to spread rumours about the film. Clearly someone is not very happy with the way it is progressing, and I can assure that that someone is not anyone from our team. Reema, Farhan, Ritesh, and I are very happy with the way Talaash has turned out.”
The movie has been written and directed by Reema Kagti and stars Rani Mukherjee and Kareena Kapoor opposite Aamir Khan.
Madhuri Dixit took some time off from Bollywood to focus on her marriage and upbringing of her kids. Now, the actress is back to India and is currently focussing on her role as a judge for Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5. Nevertheless, Madhuri has other plans too.

With this, Madhuri becomes yet another actress to turn producer after Ameesha Patel, Dia Mirza, Lara Dutta and Preity Zinta.
That Pooja Bhatt’s forthcoming ‘Jism 2’ will surpass all its previous contenders in its hotness quotient is no more a point to doubt, but it did not go down well with Pooja Bhatt when the censor board gave an A-certificate to the song which was to be aired on television for the promos of the film.
Pooja tweeted, “First music promo for #Jism2 has been given an ‘A’ certificate. And this was what one could call a truly watered down version.” Pooja pointed out sarcastically at the growing boldness on the television and said, “One sees all sorts of double entendre, etc dished out to us under the guise of ‘family entertainers’ while any iota of sensuality aimed at the thinking, passionate, adult Indian seems to make most uncomfortable.”
Pooja has decided not to tone down her trailer song and will release it on the internet instead. She said, “Absolutely REFUSE to pare my scheduled trailer down to pander to an over cautious Censor board. Will release promo on the internet instead. Since we’re going the internet way, you’ll see an uncensored version!”

Excited about the promo launch, Karisma said, “I don’t know the fate of the movie. We have worked really hard. Making a 3D film is not exactly easy. The promos have come out really exciting.”
The movie also stars Rajneesh Duggal, who plays Karisma’s husband; Jimmy Shergill as a cop and Arya Babbar.

Landing up in Mumbai sometime back, Madhuri Dixit Nene had made her intentions clear to make her comeback in Bollywood but she has not yet signed any dotted line. The reason lies in the fact that Mads is demanding as much as Rs. 5 crore for a film. Given the fact that Kareena charges between Rs. 6 and 7 crore, Katrina charges Rs. 4 to 5 crore, Priyanka Chopra charges between Rs. 3 and 4 crore per film and even Vidya Balan despite giving two major hits recently charges between 3 and 4 crore per film, this amount seems to be a bit too high for a senior actor.
Added to this is the fact that her last film Aaja Nach Le was a disaster at the box office. So were her films before that – Yeh Raaste Hain Pyaar Ke, Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam and Lajja. Her last hit was Devdas in 2002 and before that it was Dil To Pagal Hai in 1997. Moreover, Madhuri wants to do only women oriented films.
All these reasons add up to provide a reason for Madhuri’s wait to sign up a film. Though all film makers are all too eager to work with her, her high fee are acting as a barrier.
Actress Deepika Padukone chose to walk away from ‘Race 2’ after being offered a Hollywood project despite the fact that she had already shot for a week for the film. The makers of the film have decided not to take this lying down and as such, producer Ramesh Taurani has filed a case against her with Cine & TV Artistes Association (CINTAA) and Association of Motion Pictures & TV Programme Producer of India (AMPTPP).
Ramesh Taurani says, “I have been a part of the Hindi cinema industry for 25 years. I have made several blockbusters. But I have never faced a situation like this before. Our directors and the other actors are extremely annoyed with her.”
If Deepika fails to respond to the complaint, then the case will pass onto the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE). If still not addressed, then she would have to face a Non-Cooperation Directive (NCD).
Senior producer Pahlaj Nihalani explains, “If Taurani has filed a complaint against Deepika, she will have to honour the dates which she had allotted to him. If she has given the same dates to any other producer, she cannot shoot for the other project.”
Pooja Bhatt has let out the first poster of her ‘Jism 2’ and given by the looks of the poster, the cinegoers are left with no doubts about what to expect from the film. However, though the people in the industry are linking the two events of the eviction of the film’s leading lady Sunny Leone from ‘Big Boss’ and the release of the poster, Pooja Bhatt is still shying away from revealing the identity of the girl in the poster.
But smart Bhatt girl, Pooja is definitely against letting out the secret. “I ain’t letting my secret out.” And as far as the poster goes, Pooja says that since there was so much speculation, they decided to put a little teaser in place. Another surprise in film is that it would cast two male actors.
Rani Mukherjee and Aditya Chopra have been in news for their alleged romantic linkup for quite sometime now. However, the couple always preferred to keep their relationship wrapped and shied away from being clicked together.
Well, with 2012 stepping in, there have been changes in the scheme of things, or so it seems.Rani Mukherjee had her new year celebrations while on a holiday in the US/London, with the Chopra family which included Aditya, his parents Yash and Pamela Chopra as well as brother Uday.
She was spotted at Mumbai airport with Aditya Chopra and his folks after celebrating the New Year abroad and this time, the two did not shy away from the camera. So, do we hear the wedding bells ringing soon?
Well, ‘Dabangg’ may have been a grand success on the box office, but Salman and Arbaaz Khan are in no mood to repeat the crew of the original for the sequel. After director Abhinav Kashyap walked out of ‘Dabangg 2’, they had decided that barring Abhinav, they would repeat the entire cast and crew. However, the technicians were the next to leave the team. Now, the film which goes on floors in March 2012 will have a entirely new set of crew with the original lead actors.
Arbaaz Khan confirmed this fact and was quoted saying, “Why are people presuming that I’d have to depend on creative resources from the first Dabangg to make Dabangg 2? I’ve been born into a film family. I grew up hearing scripts and people talking cinema. I know enough about cinema to turn director confidently. It’s true we don’t have the original crew on board. We’ve hired a first-rate group of fresh technicians for Dabangg 2.”
“We know what we’re doing. It’s Dileep Shukla who has written the sequel. But it is my vision and ideas that have been put into the screenplay. I know exactly how I want to shoot the film. The novelty of seeing Salman playing Chulbul Pandey with a moustache has worn off. We’ll be going beyond,” said Arbaaz.
