Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known to pay attention to the minutest details when it comes to carving the look and feel of the characters in his film. Who can forget the immaticulate details with which he portrayed the perfect Gujarati settings in his super hit ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’. Aishwarya Rai was a perfect ten on ten as a Gujarati girl in the film with her looks, clothes and not to forget her perfect ‘Garba’ moves in ‘Dholi Taro’.
The director is currently busy with his next project ‘Ram Leela’ for which he will once again use a Gujarati setting. The film is a modern Romeo Juliet with Ranveer Kapoor in the male lead. For the female lead, Deepika Padukone has been roped in place of Kareena Kapoor.
It is known that Sanjay has asked Deepika to take tips from Ash’s dance moves in ‘Dholi Taro’. As such, Deepika will learn Garba for the film. Deepika is gearing up to play the role of a perfect rural Gujarati girl in the film.
Sanjay even shopped with the designer Anju Modi for the clothes for Deepika’s character and her costumes were sourced from remote areas like Bhoj, Mundra and Mandvi in the Gujarat’s Kutch district. Ranveer Singh has put on a six-pack look for the film.
Malaika Arora Khan had made Zandu Balm famous with her superhit item song ‘Munni Badnaam’ in ‘Dabangg’. Now, Kareena Kapoor steps in with ‘Fevicol’ in her item number for ‘Dabangg 2’.
The first look for Kareena Kapoor’s much hyped item number in this Salman Khan sequel is out and it shows Kareena Kapoor clad in a black choli and a shimmery blue lungi. Her hair is kept open and she wears a gajra on her wrist. However, the first look lacks novelty as it bears striking resemblance to her look in ‘Halkat Jawani’ and ‘Chammak Challo’.
Kareena’s costume has been designed by Manish Malhotra who is said to have drawn inspiration from elder sister Karisma Kapoor’s attire in her famous track ‘Sarkaiye Lo Khatiya’ from the film Raja Babu. Karisma Kapoor even visited the film’s sets when Kareena Kapoor was shooting for the song.
The song ‘Fevicol Se’ also features Salman Khan, the leading man of Dabangg 2. The movie will release on December 21 and the video of Kareena Kapoor’s item song will release soon.
Arshad Warsi is playing the role of Mahender Fauji in ‘Zilla Ghaziabad’ while Imraan Khan is playing the role of Matru in ‘Matru ki Bijli ka Mandola’. Co-incidentally, both the actors are sporting a beard and a striking similar look in both the films which are set for release on the same date. Producer of Zilla Ghaziabad, Vinod Bachchan says, “When I saw the first look of Matru ki Bijli ka Mandola, I was really amazed by Imraan’s look. This is really very surprising that both of them are seen in a same look for the film, we wanted to keep it exclusive for Arshad.”
Zilla Ghaziabad made under the direction of Anand Kumar has been under production for six years. Apart from Arshad Warsi, the film features Vivek Oberoi, Sanjay Dutt, Minissha Lamba and Rajpal Yadav in lead roles. The movie is based on a gang war between two rival groups of Satbir Gurjar (played by Vivek Oberoi) and Mahender Fauji, played by Arshad Warsi (a series of real life incidents) which happened in Ghaziabad.
Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola is a comedy film written and directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. Apart from Imran Khan, the film stars Anushka Sharma and Pankaj Kapur in the lead roles. Set in the rustic surroundings of a village in Haryana, the movie relates the story of Harry Mandola (Pankaj Kapur), a wealthy industrialist who loves his drink, his daughter Bijlee (Anushka Sharma) and the unusual bond they both share with Harry’s man friday, Matru (Imran Khan). Much to her father’s delight, Bijlee is all set to marry Baadal (Arya Babbar), the son of a powerful politician Chaudhari Devi (Shabana Azmi). This alliance which is far from just being a simple union of two young people becomes the seed for a story that brings twists and turns in the lives of Matru, Bijlee and Mandola.
Though both the films are of completely different genres, their same release date and strikingly similar look of Imran and Arshad brings them under comparison.
Asin has been a part of many Rs 100 crore club films, including ‘Ghazini’, ‘Ready’, ‘Housefull 2′ and ‘Bol Bachchan’. However, despite quite a few hits, she is yet to get a firm foothold in the industry.
Recently, the actress was in Santorini in Greece recently for a holiday with her family. She was at a tourist spot without makeup and an international fashion photographer, not recognizing her and still finding her face extremely photogenic and European-looking, requested her to pose for him. Asin was delightfully surprised to receive compliments for her looks and she did pose for him without revealing her real identity and that too without charging anything.
Asin had started her film career with Malayalam film ‘Narendran Makan Jayakanthan Vaka’ in 2001. She will be seen next with Akshay Kumar in ‘Khiladi 786’. The fans appreciated her chemistry with Akshay Kumar in ‘Housefull 2′. The fans of Akshay Kumar and Asin are waiting for December 7, 2012, when ‘Khiladi 786′ will hit the screens.
Aamir Khan’s shower scene in ‘Ghajini’ was a crucial one for the story and the success of the film. Moving on similar lines, the actor has a shower scene in his forthcoming ‘Talaash’ which will play a pivotal part in the flick. The scene takes Inspector Shekhawat (played by Aamir Khan) to the root of the problem that he fights against. The scene was a one-take shot taken in a flat that belongs to hairstylist Avan Contractor’s mother.
Aamir Khan who is very choosy about his films says that he chose to do this film because he was drawn to the script which is both thrilling and emotional.
“For me, it was the script. When I was listening to the script, I was very stressed and tense as I could not predict what is going to happen (in the story). So I found the story very exciting,” said Aamir.
“It’s not only a drama and suspense, but also a very emotional story. We all love someone or the other, who is close to us – our parents, our children, husband or wife, or lover. We are always scared of losing them,” he added.
Directed by Reema Kagti, Talaash also stars Rani Mukherji and Kareena Kapoor. It hits the screens on November 30.
Deepika Padukone is using her private space on Twitter to promote Race 2 and to launch fist look of cast of the movie. With 2.5 million twitter followers, Deepika is using her digital popularity to launch the first look of all the actors featuring in the film including her own poster.
Apart from her first look, Deepika also unveiled the first look of Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham and Jacqueline. The look of all the actors assures that the movie is going to be pretty high on the glam quotient.
Jacqueline looks quite stylish and spunky in her new haircut in Race 2 which bears close resemblance to Angelina Jolie’s chic hair cut in the movie Salt. Till now Jacqueline has not been seen in fringes in any of her films. This Sri Lankan beauty will be seen sporting leather jeggings, and sleeveless to bra tops in the film.
Giving Jacqueline and Deepika close competition is Ameesha Patel on the first look poster. The girl has worked pretty hard on her body and looks superbly glamorous with knotted top and sexy sunglasses.
The film will have the girls doing hi-octane stunts in the film. As for Deepika Padukone, who is being claimed as the ‘Indian Bond Girl’ after the film, director Abbas states, ”Deepika will easily be one of the hottest action babes in Bollywood”
Produced by Tips, the action thriller RACE 2, starring Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor and Ameesha Patel is scheduled to release 25th January, 2013.
The raw, funny, fearless and go-getter Chulbul Pandey returns with the release of the first poster of ‘Dabangg 2’.

The first teaser of the film will be released by director and Salman’s brother Arbaaz Khan on November 9, Friday, on Bigg Boss 6. On the following day, November 10, Saturday, the full-length trailer would be released on the show.

Whether the film meets the expectations of the fans is a matter of wait and watch as the film is slated for a December 21 release, just a few days before Salman’s birthday.

Sunny Leone’s Bollywood debut ‘Jism 2’ may have turned out to be a disaster at the box office, but the pornstar-turned-actress is here to stay for sure. Not only is she doing the sequel to ‘Ragini MMS’, but Leone has also reportedly signed a three-film deal with Alumbra Entertainment (known for their recent release ‘Bhoot Returns’) for a whopping Rs 5 crore. The company is also producing “Ab Tak Chhappan 2“, “Warning” and another film based on the 26/11 attacks.
The production company, which is headed by Parag Sanghavi, will start the shoot of their first film in the second quarter of 2013 and the remaining will be shot later.
“Sunny will do her third, fourth and fifth film after ‘Jism 2′ and ‘Ragini MMS 2′ with us. We will share details at the opportune moment,” said a spokesperson for Alumbra Entertainment.
After her daredevil stunts in her last release ‘Tezz’, Sameera Reddy turns into a sizzling item girl for Prakash Jha’s political thriller ‘Chakravyuh’. The song titled ‘Kunda Khol’ has been composed by Sandesh Shandilya, sung by singer Sunidhi Chauhan, and the lyrics are by Ashish Sahu.
The song has been shot extensively in Bhopal at Rizwanbagh area of Koh-e-fiza of the old city. “The song is shot in the midst of a naxalite camp. And considering the realism in his films, Prakashji said the makeup has to be dusky to ensure the look of a local girl. I was surprised that he wanted the dusky look, because most of the time, we are expected to be on the fairer side. It’s voluptuousness and dusky skin that make us, Indian women, sexy. It’s a welcome change that this trend of wholesome women has come back and the audience seem to be loving it,” says Sameera.
“Unlike other songs, which have extras dressed up as locals, here they were actually locals. The atmosphere was so realistic that it helped me push myself. Nothing had prepared me for that amount of energy, it really tested my stamina,” she adds.
Prakash Jha is all praises for Sameera and feels that she was just the right choice for the song. “Sameera has that look and she’s such a good dancer. When I told Ganesh about her, he agreed immediately. And she’s done it fabulously. I’m very happy with the song, it’s fantastic,” he says.
The ‘Dhoom’ franchise have always presented their ladies in racy and super glamorous avatar. Be it Esha Deol in ‘Dhoom’ or Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Bipasha Basu in ‘Dhoom 2’, these hit flicks left the cine goers asking for more with all of them looking super hot in their roles.
With ‘Dhoom 3’ in the making, the makers did not want to settle in for less. So, in came the Autralian import, Tabrett Bethell, who is a popular and well known Australian TV actress. She is best known for portraying the character Cara in the television series Legend of the Seeker. In her earlier days Bethell has worked as a fashion model since she was 16. Tabrett Bethell was also a cheerleader for the National Rugby League (NRL).
This hottie will be seen romancing Aamir Khan in ‘Dhoom 3’. The movie has Aamir play the villain with Katrina Kaif, too, displaying greyer shades in her character.
Welcoming Bethell, Uday Chopra tweeted:
“Please welcome the lovely @TabrettBethell who joins the cast of Dhoom 3 today.”
Jiah Khan, who made a sensational debut in Bollywood with ‘Nishabd’, has been going through a lull phase of her career. However, recently, there was quite a buzz about the actress signing a three-film deal and been finalized for a lead in an erotic period drama, titled ‘Maharani’.
The sources claimed that the film is set in the 17th century and is based on secret diaries handed over to director Madhureeta Anand by the award winning author and historian, William Dalrymple. Reports also added that a veteran actress will be cast in a negative role in the film.
However, Jiah aka Nafisa Khan, rubbished the claims with her tweet which read:
“So apparently im in a film called maharani some erotic thriller..umm news to me! Don’t knw anything abt it lol! Where do they get this from?”
