Abhishek Bachchan in Oh My God helmer’s next

Abhishek Bachchan Abhishek Bachchan in Oh My God helmers nextAfter the riveting success of the satirical ‘Oh My God!’, Umesh Shukla will direct his next with Abhishek Bachchan in lead. The project that is expected to go on floors later this year, will be bannered by T-Series under Bhushan Kumar and Varun Bajaj.
Making their first collaboration even more special, producer Bhushan Kumar gifted the script to the star on the occasion of his birthday.
Stated Bhushan Kumar, “We are happy to announce Abhishek Bachchan as the lead of our ambitious next directed by Umesh Shukla and what better day than his birthday to make the announcement. They’ve both had a good year, Abhishek with Bol Bachchan and Umesh with OMG!. My co-producers and I agreed that Abhishek fits the role. We didn’t even think of anyone else.”
While Abhishek has been confirmed as lead in the film that delves into the equation between a man and his son, details of the rest of the starcast are being kept under tight wraps.
Added producer Varun Bajaj, “After “Oh! My God’ we wanted to do a social comedy with Umeshji. This film is based on a father and son relationship. The film is funny as well as emotional. It gives out a message in the end.”
The untitled film will go on floors later this year.

Cameron invites Aamir to 10 Downing Street

cameron aamir khan Cameron invites Aamir to 10 Downing StreetThe British Prime Minister David Cameron who was in India on a short visit interacted with Aamir Khan at an educational institution in New Delhi.Naturally the two got acquainted. And, one hears that later the same evening, David Cameron invited Aamir to 10 Downing Street, the official residence of the British Prime Minister, when the actor is in London, the next time.
Aamir has accepted the invitation and he and his wife Kiran Rao Khan are expected to visit the PM’s home later this year.When Cameron visited a college in Delhi on Tuesday for a discussion with students, Aamir was the surprise drop-in, as the Indian ambassador for Unicef.
Their arrival in the college was announced by deafening cheers, and Cameron and Aamir walked in surrounded by security, and sat directly between the students — no boring speeches — and got talking to the girls next to them. It was quite a warming sight, two biggies sitting on the benches, talking animatedly like they’d known them for years.
After a few Q&As, they’d move on ahead to another group. Except that, nobody, not even the students, apart from those sitting next to them, could hear what they were discussing! There were no mics used.
The discussion was mostly about the inequality between boys and girls. But why would Cameron, and Aamir, want to limit their audience, is what we’re still puzzling over. When Obama addresses students anywhere, he rolls up his sleeves and is ready for a duel – which everyone can hear.

“Sonakshi was my first and last choice for the song. I had decided that if she doesn’t say yes, I’ll drop the song,” he said at the launch of the song held here Friday evening.
Sonakshi has donned two looks in the song. The first one has been inspired from Parveen Babi’s look in ‘Shaan’ and the second one is similar to Sridevi from ‘Chaalbaaz’.
The first outfit has been taken from what Parveen Babi wore in ‘Shaan’, but we have changed it a bit. The next one is from Sridevi’s look in her film ‘Chaalbaaz’,” Sonakshi said.Sonakshi was recently also seen in the song ‘Go Go Govinda’ from the film, ‘Oh My God’. Asked if the actress was planning to become a queen of item songs, she said that the song had to be special for her to be a part of it.

“I just reached the sets. I did not do any kind of preparation. I have seen these songs before. People say I have the old world charm and I used that,” she said.Directed by Sajid Khan, ‘Himmatwala’ stars Ajay Devgn and Tamannaah and is all set to release on March 29.

Kim Kardashian’s Tight Peplum Pants Are A Questionable Choice

KIM KARDASHIAN TIGHT PANTS 570 Kim Kardashians Tight Peplum Pants Are A Questionable ChoiceFor those keeping tabs on Kim Kardashian’s baby bump (we know you’re out there), you’re in luck: Kim returned to her form-fitting ways today in a tight black top.
For those of you who are big fashion fans, on the other hand, you’re a lot less lucky: Kim’s pants were what we would call “questionable.” The reality star, who’s around four months pregnant, chose a pair of snakeskin skinny pants with a peplum-like ruffle at the waist for a day out in Los Angeles.
Besides looking rather uncomfortable (isn’t the point of being pregnant being able to wear elastic waistbands all the time?), the pants seemed rather unflattering. When you’ve got a growing midsection, Kim, highlighting it with a major ruffle might not be the best style choice.
But as Kim explained recently, all her tight clothes are strategic. “I think because I have big boobs it could make me look heavier if I don’t, like, show off my waist or something, so I just have kind of learned to dress one way only,” she told Du Jour magazine.KIM KARDASHIAN TIGHT PANTS 571 Kim Kardashians Tight Peplum Pants Are A Questionable Choice

Vijay says ‘My fans are my Thalaivargal’

vijay1 Vijay says My fans are my ThalaivargalIn an exclusive interview Ilayathalapay Vijay reveals that he has a hundred to celebrate, thanks to Thuppakki.
Looks like the `Elite 100-crore club’, which was the bastion of Bollywood until now, is soon going to be a thing of the past!
The trend of boxoffice collections crossing `100 crore started as early as Aamir’s Ghajini, and later, films like Dabangg, 3 Idiots, Rowdy Rathore and Ready followed. Now with Ilayathalapathy Vijay’s film Thuppakki, which touched the 100-day mark last Wednesday, joining the `Elite 100 crore club’, a new trend has commenced in K’town. Apparently, Vijay becomes the second massappeal hero after Superstar Rajinikanth who has registered his name in the 100crore club. Vijay, the hot hunk of K’town, who is shooting in Mumbai for his upcoming film, Thalaivaa, speaks to us in an exclusive about his new achievement and future films.

ACHIEVING ` 100 CRORE MARK:

It’s heartwarming. I should thank the whole team. Perhaps it was possible because of a change in release pattern and size, the multiplex boom, youth thronging to theatres, huge marketing efforts that have contributed to this new trend.

THE SUPERSTAR THRONE AND `NUMERO UNO’ FACTOR:

I don’t really understand much about numbers, but my distributors kept updating me about the collections at the box office which they said crossed the mark in three weeks itself. Having taken this giant leap, thanks to my fans and A.R. Murugadoss, I will strive for greater heights.

RESPONSIBILITIES RISE:

Post Thuppakki’s huge success, people’s expectations are also massive. It gives me a sense of responsibility to achieve more in the future.

ON THALAIVAA:

`My fans are my thalaivargal’ (says with all modesty) . Well, as misconstrued by many, the film has nothing to do with politics. Neither do I lead any group in it! When you watch the film, you will know the title is justified.
Even as I was in the final leg of Thuppakki, I listened to the script of Vijay’s Thalaivaa. It’s a new genre for both of us. The way he takes his films are very dif ferent and interesting.
Nirav Shah is the biggest plus to the movie. He creates a new mood for each and every scene.
He is simply awesome! The movie is shaping up extremely well. ON

OPTING FOR A DEBUTANT DIRECTOR FOR JILLA:

If you look at my career, you will know that debutant directors had a major part to play in my successes. Rarely, I was fortunate enough to get movies from big filmmakers like Fazil sir, Shankar sir and Murugadoss. It is ultimately the script that really warrants a director. Nesan who directs Jilla also falls under this category .

Bipasha Basu Starrer ‘Shaukeen’ Remake Is Ready To Go On Floors

bipasa basu hot image Bipasha Basu Starrer Shaukeen Remake Is Ready To Go On FloorsA few months ago, we reported that actress Bipasha Basu has given her nod to play the lead role in actor turned producer Rohit Roy’s upcoming project, a remake of 1982’s classic film ‘Shaukeen’, which she confirmed saying “It’s turned out to be really fun and contemporary.”
Certainly, Bipasha is enacting the role played by Rati Agnihotri in the original film. However, it took long for the makers to finalize the actors to play the roles of three aged men.
But finally, they have zeroed upon actors Danny Denzogpa, Boman Irani and Rishi Kapoor to reprise the characters essayed by A K Hangal, Utpal Dutt and Ashok Kumar respectively in the original film.
‘Shaukeen’ is now ready to go on floors. Confirming the reports, Rohit said, “I was busy with the film for the last six months and finally the script is ready. We start shooting as soon as the actors give us the dates.”
Meanwhile, Bipasha is right now occupied with films like ‘Aatma’ and ‘Creature’. While ‘Aatma’ is releasing next month, she will start working on ‘Creature’ after its release. So, ‘Shaukeen’ remake will start rolling only after Bipasha is done with the Vikram Bhatt film.

Rakhi Sawant’s ghost avatar: spooky or disgusting?

Rakhi Sawant ghost avatar1 Rakhi Sawants ghost avatar: spooky or disgusting?Rakhi Sawant is all set to scare the fellow participants on Life OK’s popular show Welcome- Baazi Mehmaan Nawazi Ki. The controversial babe has painted her mouth white and donned a fair wig. The dramebaaz Rakhi looks quite scary in the white drape, even the overtly done up eyes look scary. Rakhi paints her pout red and the blood stains on her face and neck makes the sizzling Sawant terrifying and terrible to look at.
It is amply clear from these pictures that Rakhi is enjoying her new role – that of a ghost, and we are sure that she will succeed in scaring people away from the show. But we have a question for BollywoodLifers.
Tell us what is scarier – Rakhi Sawant in her repulsive ghost avatar or you think she can get even deadlier once she takes her make make-up off. I think people can stand the ghost, but tolerating the real Rakhi Sawant is quite a task. Even the show’s popular face Ram Kapoor will agree with us on this. Right Ram?Rakhi Sawant ghost avatar Rakhi Sawants ghost avatar: spooky or disgusting?
