Asha Bhosle's daughter in ICU

Legendary singer Asha Bhosle's daughter Varsha was early Tuesday admitted to hospital here after she took an overdose of medicine.

Varsha, 51, was rushed to the Jaslok Hospital at 4.30 a.m. by a family member.

"It is not a suicide attempt. She took an overdose of some medicine. She is now in the ICU," a senior police officer told IANS.

Varsha, a journalist, is a divorcee.

J.D. Sonawala, the doctor who is attending to her, refused to comment on the matter.

My name was never Roshan: Shiney Ahuja

Bollywood actor Shiney Ahuja of 'Gangster' fame has denied that his name was ever Roshan Ahuja and that he changed it to Shiney for his foray into filmdom.

'I don't know where that has come from now. Roshan is not my name. My parents named me Shiney and that has been my name all my life,' Shiney said while he was in conversation with a radio jockey of 94.3 MY FM.

Shiney was in the capital to promote his film 'Hijack', which has failed to woo audiences in the first week after its release.

Talking about his role in the movie, Shiney said: 'I play the character of Vikram Madan, a maintenance chief of Chandigarh airport, a man who has a hero in him and who never gives in.'

The film, also starring Esha Deol, tackles the subject of hijacking.

Shiney began his Bollywood career in 2003 with 'Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi' and continued doing serious roles in films like 'Gangster', 'Woh Lamhe' and 'Khoya Khoya Chand'.

But the actor says he is not choosy about the genre of films that he has done in his five-year-old career.

'I don't really have any specific genre. My genre is a film's script. If I like the script and if it excites me, then I do it. It's that simple,' Shiney said.

'I've never said that I do only intelligent films. I do those films that I believe in and if I like its script. If the movie has a soul, it can be intelligent or unintelligent, I would still go ahead with it,' he added.

It is apparently the script alone that drives Shiney to zero in on his films. He said: 'Good scripts are my success mantra. If you like the movie, if it interests you, if it moves you when you read it, chances are you will perform well in it and that is what makes it a success.'

Its A Hat Trick For Bollywood

A good Hindi film release is a common thing in India now. Every Friday bollywood releases lots of film, but it's surely surprising for bollywood lovers this time, three films with good content released in continuous three week. It's a hat-trick for bollywood. Two Friday before PHOONK, then ROCK ON and last week A WEDNESDAY.Phoonk

All three films are different from each other; PHOONK speaks about the Black Magic, this time RGV proves that how genius he is. Direction, camera, cast, background score- entire team work is fantastic and the subject of the film itself is a star.

Rock ON!!ROCK ON is an encouragement for all dreamy people, ROCK ON a film that makes you understand the true meaning of friendship. It's not only a music or band based film, every body faces lots of complications in there relations, ROCK ON captures it beautifully. You can relate yourself with the emotions, characters, moods, the egos and these are the features that attract people to the theaters. Music of the film is also great, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy's music is totally sync with the mood of the film. Screenplay, cinematography, cast all are remarkable. The best part is excellent performances and the superb execution of the subject. ROCK ON is a great experience.

A Wednesday
Last Friday A WEDNESDAY released, a film based on terrorism, although main platform of the film talks about the power of an ordinary man. A WEDNESDAY is one of the finest films of 2008. From the script to execution every part of the film is commendable and when two genius talents of our film industry sharing the screen space, it only increases the interest. It's not an entertaining film at all so may be it will not work on box office but A WEDNESDAY is film at its best.

Three great films in three weeks, it proves that bollywood is doing great. 2008 is one of the most highpoint times for bollywood. We can say bollywood on right track, nice scripts, cast, technicians, creatives are now in our industry.
