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”

Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray is in a critical condition and megastar Amitabh Bachchan and his family went to meet the ailing leader at his house Matoshree this Wednesday night. However, both Amitabh and Abhishek faced injuries as they struggled through the maddening crowd to make their way into the house.
“Balasaheb Thackeray: a fighter all his life, fights his life! Prayers needed now! Yes both Abhishek and me were injured with cuts, but are fine and back home… the doctors at Matoshree attended on us,” Amitabh tweeted.
Amitabh recalled the time when he was recovering in hospital after his near fatal accident on the sets of 1983 film “Coolie”, and Thackeray had come to see him.
“When I was flown in to Mumbai from Bangalore in semi-conscious state after ‘Coolie’ accident, it was his ambulance that took me to Breach Candy Hospital,” Amitabh said.
“When I fought for my life after ‘Coolie’ accident, he came to visit me in hospital, with a cartoon he had drawn – Yamraj defeated! Yamraj – God of Death, defeated by me… wish I was as proficient a cartoonist as he, I would wish to draw that for him,” added Big B.
The 70-year-old says Thackeray has always treated him like family.
“When Jaya and I married, he (Bal Thackeray) called us to his house… and the rituals that were conducted was of the ‘bahu’ coming home! From that day on he always treated us as family,” he said.
“When the Bofors Scandal accusations on us were at its peak, he called me home and asked ‘tell me the truth, are you involved?’ When I said ‘No!’, he said ‘Then do not worry about anything. I am with you. You are an actor, go do what you are best at’,” he added.
The entire Bollywood clan turned up at ‘Jalsa’ on Nov. 13, 2012, as Aishwarya, Abhishek along with Jaya and Amitabh Bachchan threw a grand party to celebrate Aaradhya’s first Diwali.
On his Facebook page, Amitabh Bachchan wrote:
“Great Diwali with relatives and close friends … quieter and sound controlled, which worked magically ..played the ‘shugun’, gave bonuses to staff, firing up the firecrackers, intelligently ..
And then to receive guests, play the shagun ka cards and listen in to new and comforting music …”
Playing perfect hosts were Aishwarya Rai looking pretty in a deep pink anarkali with gold embroidery and Abhishek attired in a white and green striped silk kurta. Big B looked handsome as ever in a stunning red silk kurta with silver work.
Attending the party were Shahrukh Khan, Farhan Akhtar, R Balki, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Bipasha Basu, Tusshar Kapoor, Karan Johar and the stunning Deepika Pudukone, among other celebrities. Also spotted at the Diwali bash were Sonam Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Farhan Akhtar, Kirron Kher, Prachi Desai, Dino Morea, Manoj Bajpai, Arjun Kapoor, Asin, Arjun Rampal, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Sunil Shetty, Gauri Khan, Twinkle Khanna, Tabu, Raveena Tandon, Manish Malhotra, Kunal Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Tusshar Kapoor and several others.
Since the next day was Children’s Day, mommy Aishwarya and dad Abhishek celebrated the day by donating to the unprivileged children.
Amitabh Bachchan shared on Facebook, “The joy of receiving is nothing compared to the joy of giving .On Deepawali to acknowledge the work of those that work for you, through bonus and gift is true value of the festival.
Abhishek and Aishwarya give presence to ‘Magic Bus’ today an organization that looks and assists into the lives of under privileged children, mostly from slum areas. They donate in the name of Aaradhya to look after 4 children, their needs and vocation and education.
Jaya and I contribute towards other such institutions which work towards such causes .. adopting children and assuring them the basics of life …”
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan wrote in his blog: “I am now in a drunken stupor, unable to keep my senses and my eyes open … I am having to write and respond to those that shower love … I almost dropped over my laptop just now, as my slumber induced brain went dead for a while … this is not good at all …But attending to ShahRukh and Akshay and Deepika and Priety and a host of friends and guests for the celebration of divali, at times saps one of every inch of what the system demands ..nothing that seemed to be incoherent and rude, but just the whole timing of the matter ..”
The raw, funny, fearless and go-getter Chulbul Pandey returns with the release of the first poster of ‘Dabangg 2’. The poster shows Salman Khan in the same look of Chulbul Pandey with his signature glasses firing a gun. 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.

For those who have come in late, ADF has complained to the CCI against YRF alleging malpractice in connection with the release of the former’s Jab Tak Hai Jaan (JTHJ), with the latter’s Son Of Sardaar (SOS) on Diwali, Nov 13. It was alleged that YRF was using its dominant position to ask exhibitors to dedicate more screens to JTHJ instead of SOS. Ajay Devgn Films has now approached the Competition Appellate Tribunal.

The recent Blenders Pride Fashion Tour has been all glamour and glitter with various Bollywood stars walking the ramp to showcase the creations of ace designers. We caught a click of Kangana Ranaut, Sonakshi Sinha and Rana Daggubati scorching the ramp in style and poise.
Rana Daggubati was the show stopper for designer Asmita Marwah. He looked super hot in his semi formal attire with a sleeveless flimsy top and cool dhoti pants accessorized with a pair of sepia tinted sunglasses and gladiator sandals.
Kangana Ranaut looked no less than an angel in a white Gavin Miguel outfit. Designer duo Falguni and Shane Peacock opted for a whacky concept for Sonakshi Sinha with a whole black swan style outfit with a hint of feathery mess below the thighs.
Ameesha Patel is back and how!! She is working hard on her body and her recent photo shoots portray her at her sexiest best. She has a lot of action going on in the professional front. She has just completed a photo shoot for both her films Race 2 and Shortcut Romeo opposite Neil Nitin Mukesh. Apart from her ‘Superhit Bhaiyyaji’ opposite Sunny Deol, the girl will also start the shooting of her new film Singh Sahab The Great with Sunny Deol which she recently announced. She plays the main lead opposite Sunny and the film also stars Johnny Lever, Prakash Raj, and Amrita Rao in a small but important role. Besides she is also working on her own project ‘Desi Magic’. Dhoom and Dhoom 2 director Sanjay Gadhvi, who’s been a close friend of Ameesha Patel is helping the actress and her business partner Kuunal Goomer with the dialogues and screenplay of their upcoming film.
Meanwhile, Ameesha’ new photo shoot for Glamstar sunglasses in a red hot bikini is out. Ameesha looks drop dead gorgeous in her bikini look. Here is Ameesha in a red swimsuit for Glamstar sunglasses…..
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.
There is no denying the fact that in her short career span, Anushka Sharma has carved her niche in this tinsel town with her confident and promising performance in films like ‘Band Baaja Baraat’ and ‘Ladies v/s Ricky Behl’ (Not to forget her successful debut with superhit ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’). Now, the girl takes a leap further by showing that she can shed all her inhibitions (and clothes) if the role demands.
Anushka plays a bold and whacky character in her forthcoming flick ‘Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola’ and going by the first trailers of the film, the babe promises to send sparks with her hot display of skin and emotions. In the trailer she is seen emerging from the water wearing a flimsy see-through top. In addition, there is also a passionate smooching scene with Imran Khan, who plays a Haryanvi guy in the film. There are titillating dialogues like — kya utar ke nahaya karun…kaccha ya baniyan?. The first poster of the film also shows Anushka in a naughty pose with a tattoo on her lower back which says dekho magar pyaar se.
Talking about Anushka Sharma’s character in the film, director Vishal Bhardwaj says that all his female characters are always very strong. “I see women as stronger than men in real life as well,” he says.
The strength of the character still awaits to be proven, but going by the first trailer the strong bolts Anushka sends with her bold and sensuous avatar is to create ripples, for sure!!
Will they or will they not?? Putting an end to all the speculations, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor finally tied the knots at Saif’s Bandra home on 16th October in the presence of a marriage registrar and close relatives. For her D-day Kareena, 32, wore a green punjabi suit, while 42-year-old Saif chose to dress up in a grey kurta-pyjama. From the bride’s side, Kareena’s mother Babita and father Randhir Kapoor signed as witnesses while Sharmila Tagore signed as a witness from the groom’s side. Also present was Kareena Kapoor’s sister Karisma Kapoor with her son.
Marriage registrar Surekha Ramesh is quoted as saying: “It was a registered marriage with three witnesses: Kareena’s father Randhir Kapoor, her mother Babita and Saif’s mother Sharmila Tagore.”
The entire industry sent their best wishes to the newly wed. Even, Kareena’s ex-boyfriend Shahid Kapoor congratulated the couple saying, “Marriage is a big decision and it’s a big occasion. I wish them a very happy married life. I hope they are happy together. I hope Kareena keeps working as she is one of the finest actresses we have.”
