Oct 24, 2014 0

Ranveer Singh bald for upcoming flick Bajirao Mastani

The lad whose gyrating hips put most belly dancers to shame, Ranveer Singh, will be seen in a new avatar for his upcoming flick Bajirao Mastani. What is his new look you might ask? Well, it seems like Ranveer Singh is a true actor who is not afraid to take risks and give it his all when comes to his career.

He has gone bald to give an authentic portrayal of his character, an 18th century Maratha general and statesman Bajirao Peshwa. The movie also stars Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra in major roles alongside him and he seems to be all geared up to do his best to wow audiences with his latest venture. We have seen Shahid Kapoor take the bald route for his film, Haider, and now Ranveer Singh has gone down the same road.

His Kill Dil co-star, Parineeti Chopra, thinks he looks really hot with a shaved head and is promoting their new film with them nowadays. Ranveer Singh reveals that shaving his head was not a difficult decision but his role is very demanding in terms of physical training. He also had to learn Marathi and secluded himself in a hotel room for some days to understand his character better and prepare for this new challenge. We are hopeful to see a repeat of Deepika and Ranveer’s sizzling chemistry from Ramleela in this story of passionate lovers and cruel fate set in the Marathi culture.

He started off from humble beginnings in the TV serial, Fauji (1988), which was majorly popular because the audience was captivated by this amazing screen presence and superb acting skills. His parents’ demise saw him move to Mumbai to try his luck in Bollywood. His first film Deewana (1992) was a super hit for which he received the Fimfare Best Debut Actor Award. From then on his hard work and patience paid off with a constant series of successes for him. Even the critics praised his performance in Baazigar and Darr where he had a negative role. He skyrocketed to fame with the unforgettable Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (1995).

He had a few setbacks with films like Dil Se, Paheli and others but still people appreciated his unconventional roles in such films and it did nothing to harm his career.

Guess Who Amitabh Bachchan Interviewed in Dubai

Jun 27, 2014 0

In Dubai to promote his new movie Bhootnath Returns, Amitabh Bachchan was his usual suave and drily witty self. Asked what his advice to the youth was, Big B quipped, “I am beyond giving advice. I want the youth to give me advice.”

But pressed to answer for a young audience, he replied, “The usual advice…study hard, obey the law…. In the context of this movie, I’d say be conscious of social issues [facing us].”
A sombre Big B

Weirdly, soon after he answered this question, someone asked him the exact same question about advice. “I just answered,” Bachchan Senior responded. Indeed, he did!

As you know, Mr Bachchan reprises his role of a ghost in this movie (the sequel to Bhootnath). Most people fear ghosts, what does the superstar fear? “Right now, I fear this question!” he said. But then he got serious, explaining that as an artist he feared “not living up to people’s expectations.”

Boman Irani, who plays a politician in Bhootnath Returns, was asked what he thought of Bollywood movies these days. The talented actor said he appreciated the fact that there were “very different voices and stamps around. It’s an exciting time to be here.”

Jun 27, 2014 0

The seemingly reluctant star wife who seemed happiest when she was away from the limelight, has come into her own and how. After launching her store Design Cell and doing a collaborative villa project, Naira, with best friend Sussanne, Gauri is now working with interiors and design group First Ferry Group. She will be launching the Gauri Khan line of accessories and fittings and will also be involved in designing any projects the group will be involved in including restaurants, spas and any other architectural spaces. First Ferry Founder Prateek Chaudhry and Group CEO Heinz Klier, tell us that they chose Gauri because of her impeccable style and taste.

It may seem like she has suddenly launched her career but Gauri has been working on her interior design career for a while. “It’s not like I suddenly woke up and decided that I would do this because I had nothing better to do. I have been designing private homes and doing my own homes, which have been challenging and big projects in themselves.” After taking a slight pause, Gauri goes on to admit, “Frankly I also wanted to gauge whether I loved this enough to want to do this. It is important to me to love it enough to make it my career.”

It’s clear that Gauri is serious about tapping into her talent and creating a niche for herself. The conversation meanders to details of Mannat, including her most private spaces, AbRam, her home life and what she envisions for herself in the future.

EXCLUSIVE! Aishwarya Rai Bachchan & Katrina Kaif Dine Together at Zuma, Abu Dhabi

Jun 27, 2014 0

For a long time they were pitted against one another primarily because of the ‘ex’ factor. It was said that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was pretty cold towards Katrina Kaif and the reason was the Salman Khan connection. Salman had started dating Katrina after his break-up with Aishwarya which led people to believe that the two ladies didn’t exactly see eye to eye. What fuelled the rumours about the alleged rivalry were stories about how Ash ‘ignored’ Katrina on the sets of Dhoom:3 in Chicago when the former Miss World had gone to visit hubby Abhishek Bachchan who starred in the film.

However this bit of information may come as a surprise to all rumour-mongers. According to reliable sources, Aishwarya was dining with Katrina at celeb favourite Zuma in Abu Dhabi last week!

 

The ‘dining’ coup took place on Saturday, May 17, 2014 just before Ash flew to Cannes. Katrina of course had been stationed in Abu Dhabi for the shoot of her upcoming action thriller with Hrithik Roshan, Bang Bang.  The two lovely ladies apparently walked in at around 10pm, accompanied by a female friend. They stayed on for over two hours at the swish restaurant. Ash and Kat spent time together, chatting and having a conversation over some delicious Zuma classics such as Tuna Tataki, some sushi and miso black cod.

It is still not clear why Aishwarya had a stop-over at Abu Dhabi before she flew to the Cannes Film Festival. Was it because of her delayed trip to France? Ash was supposed to land in Cannes on May 16, 2014 but was held back because of the air traffic controller’s strike. But Katrina’s case is even more curious. Why and how she bonded with Ash over dinner is quite a mystery!
