What makes Kareena a true Diva?

She already has Bollywood in awe of her looks and attitude and now Kareena is all set to take the west by storm with her forthcoming flick ‘Kambakkht Ishq’.

It is believed that Bebo will be seen playing her real stylish self in this super stylish flick. The only difference between the real and reel Kareena is that she will be seen playing a Hollywood diva. Kareena’s character will be high on fashion as she plays a supermodel.

Reportedly, her makeup and hair has been done by Hollywood make up artists and hairstylists. Since she has a super glam look in the film, designer Akki Narula has designed her attires. Aki Narula had earlier designed her super hot, super trendy look for Tashan. Those who have seen the rushes of ‘Kambakkht Ishq’ feel Bebo looks simply superb.

Is Hollywood taking note of our Bebo?

What makes Kareena a true Diva? Comment below.

Her beautiful looks
Her sexy figure
Her attitude
Her fashion sense

Kat wants young co-stars!

Sorry dudes ... we don’t’ mean to offend ya, and we know you guys are ruling the roost, but the lovely Katrina Kaif wants to work with 20 somethings, too. When we asked her how she felt about finally getting a chance to work with stars of her age (John and Ranbir), she replied, “At the start of my career I’ve worked with the best and the biggest of stars like Akshay and Salman.

My best friend is Boney Kapoor’s son Arjun, we hangout with David Dhawan’s son, and we’re all friendly with Ranbir too. I have the best of all worlds. I’m excited about Rajkumar Santoshi’s film with Ranbir; as I am about Priyan’s De Dhana Dhan with Akshay.” It’s exciting alright. We heard that RK ended up hurting her while doing an action sequence. Now we know why Akshay is her favourite co-star. Though we have to admit ... Ranbir is the cutest lover-boy on-screen. And we guess off-screen, too (how would you know?). Well, Ms. Padukone could tell you more if you want. Not that she’s dying to!

'Unbutton' act at LIFW may land Akshay in trouble

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar may land himself in the soup as city police have started inquiry into his alleged obscene "unbutton" act during the Lakme Fashion Week here.

We are conducting an inquiry into Akshay Kumar's alleged obscene acts during Lakme Fashion Week held here recently after we received a complaint from a person called Anil Nair, a police officer said.

The complainant raised objections on Akshay's unbutton act in public, the officer said.

On Monday, mid-way between his ramp walk, Akshay Kumar walked towards his wife Twinkle Khanna, who was seated in the front row and allegedly asked her to unbutton his jeans during the fashion show.

Asked if a police case is likely to be registered against Akshay and the organisers, the officer said, if the inquiry finds them guilty of obscene act, they will register a case against the actor and the organisers.

Ajay Devgan back with Kajol on Birthday

Ajay Devgan celebrates his 40th birth anniversary today, April 2, 2009. From shooting for his home production All The Best ’ at Lonavala, he will be coming back to Mumbai to spend some quality time with his family. There are no big party plans as Ajay simply wants to chill with wife Kajol, daughter Nysa and close family members.

Here’s wishing the actor a very happy birthday as we go on to list some of the major achievements in his professional and personal life.

Ajay Devgan’s real name in Vishal Devgan. Interestingly his character was named Vishal in several films including Bhoot, Deewane and Kanoon .

For his very first film Phool Aur Kaante, he won the Filmfare Best Male Debut Award. Much against his unconventional looks, he made his mark with a powerful performance and kick-started his career with action.

He won his first National Award in Mahesh Bhatt’s last directorial venture Zakhm. Ajay Devgan won acclaim for his stirring performance in the film, much against his initial action-star image.

After dating actress Kajol for around five years, the duo got married on February 24, 1999. Kajol subtly expressed her love for Ajay Devgan in a public event when she received the Best Actress Award for Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge . She dedicated the award to an anonymous person shooting in Darjeeling. Later it was known that Ajay Devgan was shooting in Darjeeling.

Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam was one of his finer performances where he played a husband who helps her wife find her first love. With the film, Ajay Devgan also entered into distribution business.

Ajay Devgan won his second National Award for The Legend of Bhagat Singh , a biography on the legendary freedom fighter of India. By now he was already established as an actor of high caliber.

His latest achievements include U Me aur Hum , a film that he has written-directed and acted with wife Kajol. His sensitive direction and heart-rendering performance established him credentials as a promising filmmaker as well.

Katrina: I'm a hopeless romantic

At times she’s a phataka, at other times, she’s a pure ‘Barbie’ babe (no barbs intended here). And at times (when the flashbulbs are off, and the media is at safe distance) she’s her sweet, simple, giggly self. The twenty-something, ‘kool Katz’ supposedly takes her work far too seriously, Something she says herself; so, in one casual moment, we couldn’t resist asking her what her trigger of release was? What actually pressed her buttons? Bursting into an energetic smile (we wonder where she gets so much of that from; Sallu, maybe?) she replied, “Playtime! Yaay! Not having makeup on. That thrills me. I started modeling when I was 14-years-old. So I do miss having time for myself. I miss having pani-puri on the streets, and doing such things by myself. Also, I’m a huge movie fan. Especially of grand, sweeping, romantic classics like Casablanca and Gone With The Wind. I can watch those movies over and over again. I guess I’m just a hopeless romantic. I am a Cancerian, na?” Well, well! How one wishes life was one romantic fantasy. We’re sure Katz agrees? Gottit Sallu? Now take a cue from this Barbie...

Arbaaz’s new female interest?

And while big bro Salman has been all over the place for his quotes, escapades and autorickshaw rides, bhaiya Arboo (cute name, haan, Malaika?) has been working hard like a silent warhorse too. And the results are now there for all to see. Believe it or not, besides the couple of good movies he’s signed, he has also launched his own production house (which will hopefully see a big launch with bro Sallu and Katz in his first venture) and now he’s gotta brand new lovely lady in his life as well. Hold your horses Malaika, we only meant leading lady. Apparently Arbaaz has been going all out to promote a hottie model from Bangalore, Madhuri Bhattacharya, who co-stars with him in two movies, Prem Ka Game and Bachelor Party. Arbaaz who plays an outrageous flirt in the movie (a married one that too), gets to romance the newbie on-screen, but off-screen this happily married man is damn clear about one thing, “For me portraying infidelity is only for the screen. Never in real life” says Arbaaz. Wah ustaad....we like this andaaz. He could well be missing his bachelor days (now is there one married man who doesn’t?) but with a super-sexy gharwali like Malaika, who would care about a baharwali. Right, Arboo?

Shah Rukh Khan: I terminate my rivals

Mr Bionic Man is at it again. With even more ‘titanium’ (and various metallic parts) inside his body, Shah Rukh Khan actually laughed aloud when we called him ‘Terminator’. “Yes. I’m a Terminator. I terminate my rivals. I terminate obstacles and I’m now even more ‘bionic’ than before” he told us. And all the ‘metal’ is probably putting more steel in his spine too, when it comes to dealing with ‘shouldering’ all his roles and responsibilities. In fact, he’s hit the floor running - from walking the ramp, to shooting for Karan’s film, to planning his cricket strategies to shooting videos ... Phew! Now isn’t that too much bojh on his brand new shoulder? Well, it’s only because his recently operated shoulder is still in the healing process. Otherwise our King Khan can stalwartly carry the cross of Bollywood on his big, broad shoulders, hai na? And while his whirlwind activity is on, we heard that Gauri and buddy Karan Johar have been tut-tutting and are becoming overly protective about that still ‘sore’ part of him. He’s shooting for My Name Is Khan, and Karan’s been overtly careful to shoot only some easy portions with SRK, no heavy-duty stuff for him for sometime. Hmnnnn. Does this also mean that he won’t be jumping on some cricketer and wrapping himself around him...a la Shoaib Akhtar last year? Hmnnn and double hmnnnn!

'Cheers...' celebrates Dharmendra's 50 years in B'wood

After "Apne", Sunny Deol is once again teaming up with dad Dharmendra and younger brother Bobby for "Cheers - Celebrate Life". The actor-filmmaker says the film is a celebration of his father's 50 years in Bollywood.

"Dad (Dharmendra), Bobby and I are doing a great film with Sangeeth Sivan called 'Cheers - Celebrate life'. Actually, we are trying to celebrate my dad's 50 years in the industry with the film," said Sunny.

"We are going to start shooting next month onwards now that dad is fine after the knee surgery (last year). Hopefully, we will release it this year itself under our banner Vijeta Films so as to keep fresh the essence of his 50 years," he said.

Besides "Cheers", Sunny is also busy wielding the megaphone for his second directorial venture "The Man" in which he stars with Shilpa Shetty.

"'The Man' is the key thing that I'm working on as of now and it's going to be a good film ... that I can promise the audience. I directed a film called 'Dillagi' earlier and it didn't do well business-wise, but people loved it. Obviously now with my next film that I'm directing, people are going to check if I still have got it (in me) or not," he said.

Considering his diminishing on-screen presence, is the action star now shifting gears to don the director's hat?

"I don't know. I can't say anything right now because things change so rapidly. You never know what is going to happen tomorrow. All I know is that there are lots of things to do," said Sunny, who was last seen in "Heroes" in 2008.

He may not be sure of his future directorial ventures, but he is confident that he wants to produce "good cinema" under his banner.

Apart from his Bollywood career, Sunny, a "fitness freak", has also associated himself with a health club chain - Club Fitline. He was in the capital recently to launch its first centre.

Sunny has been away from the limelight but feels that brother Bobby and cousin Abhay have been making their screen presence felt.

"Abhay is doing very well in his career. Unfortunately his earlier films didn't bring him that popularity, but people who saw him were always fond of him because he did great work from 'Socha Na Tha' (2005) itself.

"Bobby's career is doing pretty well too. It's just his bad luck. He is a great actor and a very goodlooking boy with a great personality. It's just sometimes things don't fall right. Otherwise he has done good cinema," the actor said.

Sunny has no plans to launch his sons in the near future and says he is happy giving his sons Karan, 18 and Rajvir, 14, a chance to "pick their own space".

"They are still young. I want them to study as of now and have their own space. I'll let them grow up to be wanting to be something and then whatever they decide to take, I'll definitely be with them," he said.

Apart from "Cheers" and "The Man", Sunny's other projects include "Right Ya Wrong" and Bhushan Kumar's next project with Kangana Ranaut.
