Anil's connection with Akshaye and Saif

With a lean season at Bollywood currently, one of the few films which is making people sit up and take notice is RACE. Its high adrenalin actions sequences are boasting of an international appeal while an unusual combination of multi star cast is intriguing too.

One such combination is that of veteran Anil Kapoor with Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna. While Saif and Akshaye had a great camaraderie demonstrated in DIL CHAHTA HAI, Anil Kapoor has acted with Saif and Akshaye only once earlier.

Remember TAAL? This was the first film which brought Anil and Akshaye together. The scenes they shared were powerful and quite important to the narrative of the film as they both wooed none other than Aishwarya Rai. Incidentally, the two were also the lead protagonists in two stories of episodic SALAAM-E-ISHQ and were paired opposite Juhi Chawla and Ayesha Takia respectively.

Later Akshaye was seen in Anil's home production GANDHI MY FATHER and is currently also involved in his second production SHORTKUT - THE CON IS ON!

With Saif, Anil has been involved for a very brief period. The film was BIWI NO. 1 where the two shared a solitary scene together. A Salman Khan - Karisma Kapoor film, BIWI NO. 1 had Anil in a cameo with Saif in a guest appearance. Now after RACE, Saif would be seen along with Anil Kapoor once more in TASHAN. Yet again, this Yash Raj film is an action entertainer and would showcase both the actors in a different light.

An Abbas Mustan film, RACE is an out and out action entertainer with Saif and Akshaye playing half-brothers while Anil plays a detective. Directed by Abbas Mustan, the film has been shot internationally with Dubai and Durban being prominent locations for shoot. Also starring Bipasha Basu, Katrina Kaif and Sameera Reddy, the film has music by Pritam.

A TIPS production, RACE has action by Allan Amin, Bollywood's numero uno action director, who has choreographed some breathtaking stunts for the film. RACE is looking at a March release.

Sushmitha Sen Jacked Up By The Moral Police


Former Miss Universe and Bollywood diva Sushmita Sen has landed herself in trouble. Her forthrightness and frank attitude has landed her in a bush of thorns.

Ooops now you must be wondering why and what must have happened that the lady divine is in such a trouble.

Well, its because the lady expressed out her view on “Pre-marital” in a TV interview stating “No Indian has chastity or virginity any more”. These comments over pre-marital sex didn’t go down well with the legal authorities and moral police, who felt that such comments could affect the morality of India.

But then sush was only giving her opinion, and the Indian constitution states that every individual has the liberty to express his/her views.

Her comments have upset moral authorities so much that Madras High Court has issued a notice against her.

The petition sought to prosecute the actress under IPC Sections 292, 292B, 293 and 294 ( all pertaining to obscenity in print, words and songs), 499 and 500 ( which relate to defamation), besides Sections 3, 4 of the Indecent Representation of Women (Prohibition) Act and 2, 3 and 6 of the Young Persons Harmful Publication Act.

Well, people don’t you think everybody has the right to express their views and this is not the first time that film stars have been attacked in Tamil Nadu by the moral police. Last year actors Khushboo, Shilpa Shetty and Reema Sen had been dragged to court.

Everybody has a right to do what they want to do, unless it drastically harms someone.

The moral authorities should be looking into more serious issues and concerns which affect the development of the country rather than pestering people like this.

Excitement About Jodha Akbar


“Jodha Akbar” a UTV venture, is the most awaited film of the year. which is based on a romance between the 16th century Muslim Mughal emperor Akbar, played by Hrithik Roshan, and a Hindu princess, Jodha Bai, played by Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai.

Directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, the movie will also be dubbed in Tamil and Telugu languages.

Former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan states that all the actors in the movie ‘Jodha Akbar’ had worked very hard and had done the film with ‘full passion’.

What if Jodha Akbar failed like Asoka?????

To this question Ash stated “At certain times certain films do well…certain films do not do that well. It’s a very tricky thing.”

On the other hand bollywood movie star Hrithik Roshan says he deliberately choose this movie , as acting out the difficult role of the Mongol emperor in the new historical romance “Jodha Akbar” gave him an opportunity to excel as an actor.

“It is only when it seems to threaten the value of my job would I be consciously giving it my best,” he said.

Well, let’s wait and watch how this movie fares at the box office.

Saif Tatto’s Kareena’s Name On His Arm


Saif is out proclaiming his love for Kareena. The man is so madly in love that he has no qualms about this issue. We hear that Saif has got Kareena’s name tattooed in Devnagri on his arm at Hakim’s Alim in Bandra.

The man really took some pain searching and browsing through different calligraphic styles so as to finalize the shape of the tattoo.

Finally, after much resolution he walked into Hakim’s Alim in Bandra and sat for a two-three hour session to get Kareena’s name tattooed in Devnagari- an ancient Indian language.

The tattoo was reportedly done in indelible ink. And this is not the end the couple have cleverly planned their schedules and left for Greece on Friday, January 4, so as to spend time together alone there before other crew members of Tashan- their new film together, catch up with them for a shooting schedule there.

Amritha Visits A Striptease Bar


Amrita Rao who is known for her decent and naïve like attitude surprised everybody by visiting a striptease bar.

Though underage the lady got in by paying an extra 10 dollars. Accompanied by two of her friends she ventured out on the streets

And after witnessing the scenes within, Amrita promised herself that this was the first and last time she would be visiting a striptease bar.

She literally for the first time saw women stripping from top to bottom. If that wasn’t enough the women also went on to perform nude pole dances.

The most embarrassing thing about the whole scene was the fact that she and her friend were the only girls in the room.

Well, poor thing!!!!

Salman And Sanjay Bajaynge Band


Blockbuster duo Salaman and Sanjay will be seen working in a film after a long time. The best part of it all is that the film will be produced by Sanju baba himself.

And Sanjay Dutt himself insisted that Salman be the first choice for the film.

Salman on the other hand has always maintained that Dutt was his ‘best friend’ in the industry. “Naturally, when he called Salman, Salman could not refuse the film,” says one source.

Looks like there is lot of bonding going on between the duo.
Let’s see if this bonding is put across well in the film.

Akshay Kumar is now titled as the “ One Man Industry”

Akshay Kumar is now titled as the “ One Man Industry”. He is compared to Rajnikanth – Superstar of the South Indian Films. Reason being every film of his has turned out to be a major hit.

“Bhool Bhulaiya” – his latest movie was as successful as Rajnikanth’s Chandramukhi. Also, “Welcome” his comic flick will turn out to be a blockbuster very soon.

He is nothing but a Hit Machine shooting out hit movies consecutively. There is no need for him to compete with any of the Khans post the rocking success of “Bhool Bhulaiya”.

The actor presently charges a whooping amount of 22 crores per film. To top it up all, his latest film with Venus has his fees touching a staggering 41 crores, hence making him the highest paid actor in the industry today.

Akshay has indeed come a long way and it’s good to see his hard work being recognized.

Rakhi Sawant And Her Publicity Stunts


Rakhi Sawant is one actress who always has one way or the other to stay in news. Getting emotional, or exposing too much or blabbering some rubbish………these are some tactics she uses to stay in news.

Everything she does seems so artificial and superficial that you do not know whether to laugh or to cry when she opens her mouth.

Sources reveal that the lady has decided to go unemotional in the New Year. She has decided to sober down in 2008

Well this statement has certainly brought the lady in limelight.

Also, she is in news for lodging a complaint against Star News, accusing them to be cheating the audiences, due to their alleged fake voting pattern.

The channel however, has not taken this allegation seriously.

“From now, Rakhi won’t cry, but will have people cry,” she roars.

Watch out guys!!!!!!
