Didn’t have a clue that I was being auditioned for Anandi’s role: Toral

I didn't have a clue that I was being auditioned for the role of Anandi, " says actress Toral Rasputra on becoming the new Balika Vadhu

Are you nervous about playing Anandi, a character already made popular by Pratyusha Banerjee?
Yes, but I believe in myself. My co-actors share tips with me. The atmosphere on the sets is very positive.

How did your family react?
They are elated, especially my in-laws. My mother, an avid follower of the show, is also thrilled. When the producers asked me if I was willing to replace Pratyusha to play the new Anandi, I didn't give it a second thought.

What do you think about Pratyusha?
She is a fine actress and people have liked her. I hope to live up to the audience's expectations and carry her legacy forward.

How did you react when you were offered this role?
I didn't have a clue that I was being auditioned for Anandi's role. The process took almost 20 days and I was under the impression that it was for a new project. I was excited when they told me that I had been finalised to play Anandi. It's a turning point in my career.

What worked in your favour?
I can carry off the Indian look perfectly. I've donned the Rajasthani look in my previous show and the makers probably got a positive feedback from there.

Ever fear that the viewers might take time to adjust to a new face and affect TRPs?
The viewers will take some time, as they have loved Pratyusha as Anandi. But I am certain that they will accept me over time.

Watch Trailer: RGV’s bloody thriller ‘Satya 2’

With the release of Ram Gopal Varma’s ‘The Attacks Of 26/11’ on Friday, we get to see the trailer of RGV’s next release ‘Satya 2’ which is based on underworld politics. ‘Satya’ is a sequel to 1998 blockbuster ‘Satya’.
The trailer opens and ends with a voice-over. The voice-over says that Mumbai police has almost wiped away underworld goons like Dawood Ibrahim, Chota Rajan, Abu Salem, Chota Shakeel but the holi of blood and murder will always persist as long as people has love for money and people continue to hate those who have money, crime will remain alive as long as people has anger against the system, such underworld goons will take birth on the earth in different forms and shapes. By 2013, Mumbai police has almost made the underworld dons non existent but they will never able to diminish them totally. 
The trailer looks very promising and scintillating. ‘Satya 2 stars Telugu actor Sharwanand as a lead actor.
We can decide the faith of a film on watching a half a minute trailer but we hope the film does really well.
Watch the trailer below:-

Did we hear it right? Big B, SRK to be in Balki's next venture

Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh KhanBollywood stars Amitabh Bachchan and Shah Rukh Khan are set to be seen together once again, in R. Balki's next film.

The two stalwarts were last seen together in Ravi Chopra's 2008 production Bhootnath, where Big B starred in the lead role while SRK had a special appearance.

The last film where they featured in starring roles was Karan Johar's 2006 hit, Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. Big B and SRK have also shared screen space in Aditya Chopra's Mohabbatein, Yash Chopra's Veer-Zaara and Amol Palekar's Paheli.

The buzz doing the rounds is that Balki's new film will be co-produced by Big B's banner ABCL and SRK's production house, Red Chillies Entertainment. The two superstars will also reportedly be involved in the distribution of the film besides facing the camera for the project.

"The content of the film is a closely guarded secret but the two actors have agreed to work in the project because of its unique and interesting storyline," an industry source said, adding that Balki had been hunting for a script that would suit both Big B and SRK for a while now, and has finally found it.

While this is the first time that Shah Rukh will be associated with a Balki project, Big B has starred in both movies the filmmaker has directed so far. He was the hero of Balki's 2007 debut directorial feature Cheeni Kum, and then essayed a National Awardwinning performance in the 2009 hit, Paa.

Currently, Big B is shooting for Prakash Jha's Satyagraha in Bhopal.

SRK, meanwhile, is busy wrapping up Rohit Shetty's Chennai Express. Balki's previous projects have dealt with unusual subjects and have always had a surprise element for the audience. Cheeni Kum, for instance, was a mature romance that narrated the love story of an eccentric and aged chef played by Big B. In Paa, he cast the actor as a 13-year-old suffering from the rare illness, progeria.

Though Balki is tight-lipped about his next project with Big B and SRK, industry insiders believe it will once again deal with an unconventional story.

Fisherman's family accuses Salman Khan and bodyguards of harassment

A fisherman's family at suburban Bandra on Sunday demanded filing an FIR against actor Salman Khan and his bodyguards for allegedly threatening them to shift their boats and fishing nets which were blocking sea view from the star's cottages.
Three complaints were made at the Bandra police station on September 2011 and on May and December 2012, but instead of registering FIRs against the bodyguards and actor, police have registered only non-cognisable offences, the victim Lawrence Falcon (65) said.
Salman Khan had bought two cottages 'Belle View' and 'Benar' at Bandra's Chimbai area in 2011 and had barricades put up around them. The fisherman's family, who park their boats and put up fishing nets on the beach, alleged that Khan's bodyguards started harassing them soon after he bought the property. Maharashtra: Fisherman's family accuses Salman Khan and bodyguards of harassment
In a written complaint to Additional Police Commissioner Vishwas Nangre Patil's office on Sunday, Falcon and his family claimed that the bodyguards asked them not to park their four boats or keep fishing nets on the beach as that would block the sea view from the star's cottages.
Falcon also alleged that the plastic sheets used to cover their boats began disappearing. He claimed one of the family members was assaulted by Khan's bodyguards. Anil Joseph, chairperson of Perry Road Residents' Association, who is helping the family, told, "On Saturday, we met Nangre Patil and today we gave in writing, demanding an FIR against the actor, his father and bodyguards. A copy of the complaint was delivered at the office of Nangre Patil".
Sources said Nangre Patil's office had received the copy and the Additional CP has asked the family to meet him again on Tuesday. Nangre and Salman Khan were not available for comments.

Daniel Day-Lewis wants a break from acting

After his Oscar-winning turn as former US President Abraham Lincoln, actor Daniel Day-Lewis has said he is taking a break from films. The London-born actor, 55, wants a break because he fears he could never top his performance in 'Lincoln', reported Daily Star.
His role as the US President made him the first star in history to scoop three Best Actor awards.
"I don't have any projects lined up I haven't got anything planned for a length of time. I can't imagine what I would try to do after playing Lincoln," he said. Daniel Day-Lewis wants a break from acting
Day-Lewis finished filming the historical epic over a year ago but has refused to sign up for any future roles.
"I haven't even started contemplating what's next. But I know if I do think about doing another role it would seem really inconceivable," he added.

Aaradhya will decide her career, says Abhishek Bachchan

Actor Abhishek Bachchan says daughter Aaradhya will have the liberty to choose a career for herself and a parent's job is just to give "love, care and good education" to the child. Abhishek, married to actress Aishwarya Rai, has a daughter named Aaradhya. She turned one in November 2012.
He was in the capital Saturday to be the part of designer Ritu Beri’s annual kids' fashion show, organised to create awareness for autism and raise funds to support underprivileged children.
When asked about why Aaradhya was missing from the action on the ramp, Abhishek said: "I had lot of fun coming here. I am a film actor and these children (who walked the ramp) are much better than me. Talking about my daughter, I think it is completely her (Aaradhya) choice, let her decide her career as and when she wants too.”"Currently she is in Dubai and very small, but I am sure she will be happy to lend her support to such causes when she grows up,” he said.
The 37-year-old also said that a parent's responsibility is just too give a healthy upbringing to child, without forcing any ideas on him or her.
“As a parent it is not about material goods. The gifts a parent can give the children are love, care, education and understanding. These are the most important gifts any parent can give. As far as I am concerned, taking care of the child is never just a mother’s role. It’s all about sharing responsibilities," Abhishek told IANS.
Dressed in a black jacket and blue denims, he was seen having a fun time with small kids on the ramp. He also danced on the ramp to songs like “Bunty aur Babli”, "Kajra re", "Bol Bachchan" and "Desi girl".
Showing his generosity to the cause, Abhishek also signed a t-shirt that went on live auction during the event. With the price starting from Rs.50,000 it finally went to Member of Parliament Baijayant "Jay" Panda, who got the t-shirt, for Rs.5 lakh.

Snapshot: Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor show their holy side in 'Gunday'

Abbas Ali Zafar is currently in Kolkata with the star cast of his upcoming film 'Gunday'. Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra have donned a new avatar for Zafar's film. In the recent picture tweeted by director Ali Abbas Zafar, 'Gunday' Ranveer Singh and Arjun Kapoor are seen showing their holy side.

Priyanka Chopra beats item girls Katrina, Kareena

Priyanka Chopra is going great guns in her professional life. Apart from bagging best actress award for her stupendous performance in some of her recent movies over the years, she is all set to score sixer with her first item number which goes as 'Babli Badmaash Hai'. She has recently shot for the song 'Babli Badmaash hai' for Sanjay Gupta's ‘Shootout at Wadala’. Priyanka has been reportedly paid Rs 2.8 crores for her debut item number.
With this whopping amount, she has pushed behind item girls Malaika Arora (Munni), Katrina Kaif (Sheila) and ‘Fevicol Se' Kareena Kapoor. Now Babli Priyanka is on the high. She will be doing some sexy latkas and jhatkas in a song composed by Anu Malik and is said to be a retro song inspired from 70s club music.
Chief executive officer of Balaji Telefilms, Tanuj Garg, confirmed that Priyanka Chopra has been paid Rs 2.8 crores for the song and the amount paid to her is all worthy, as the song is going to be one of its kind.
The song will include some important aspect of the movie and hence the makers are ready to spend any amount for it. It will be more than an item song.
Priyanka took personal interest on the song. She listened to about 11 tracks and eight variations of the song before saying yes to the final one.
Now, Priyanka has shot for the song and she is quite happy about the number. The song has been choreographed by Ahmed Khan and she will be seen in desi avatar. She will promote the movie along with the lead actors before the film release on May 1.
‘Shootout at Wadala’ stars Sanjay Dutt, John Abraham, Kangana Ranaut, Anil Kapoor, Tusshar Kapoor, Sonu Sood. In the film, John plays underworld goon Manya Surve.

John Abraham: I have not been the greatest son to my mom

He has always been looked upon as one of Bollywood’s most well-mannered actors. But John Abraham, surprisingly, admits he hasn’t been “the greatest son” to his mother, Firoza Irani.
Answering a question (on whether he took inspiration from his mother for his upcoming film, I Me Aur Main), the actor said, “No, not my mom. I’ve not been the greatest son to my mom. We fight and argue all the time. But Zarinaji (Zarina Wahab, who plays his mother in the film) treated me like a son, so she was a superb mother.”
Ask John if he would call himself a good boy, and he says: “I would want to believe that I’m a good son, but I think I fall short. I feel because of this profession, you become a people pleaser. You’re always trying to create an impression everywhere you go. If I stop and be myself, I think that will make me a better person. When I start a family, I hope I have daughters because they are cute, sweet and sit so quietly. A boy would be running all over the place, banging the TV.... Girls are more shaant (quiet).”

Tell us something about your new film I, Me Aur Main.
It’s a must-watch for women. They will identify with the film because of the men in their life. It isn’t a rom-com; it’s a slice-of-life film. I wouldn’t be apologetic to say I made it for a niche audience. I was very clear about who the target audience is; if my studio or producers think otherwise, then they are sadly mistaken.
Is every man a bit like your character in the film?
I’m sure every man, including me, is probably vain and loves looking at the mirror. Men love talking about themselves and they measure their own worth by the amount of money they earn. In the process, they stop listening to their women. It’s always about their problems, like ‘You know what happened to me at work?’ And the women would say, ‘Even I exist. Why aren’t you listening to me?’ I’m not saying all men are bad, but men take more time in the bathroom these days — 90 per cent are like that.
How have women shaped your life?
You gather more experience with every relationship you have been in. Not necessarily with a girlfriend, but also the people you associate yourself with. In the film, there’s a scene where I try to kiss Prachi’s (Desai) character, and she says, just because I’m your friend doesn’t mean, I’m going to sleep with you... Most Indian men, culturally, cannot approach women because we are scared of rejection. So we sit in one corner and say, ‘Kya dikhti hai, yaar!'                                                                                                  
Your new film is starkly different from your last two — Force (2011) and Race 2.                                                         
It’s tough. You have placed yourself into the minds of the audience in a certain way. I spoke to distributors and exhibitors, who said, ‘Aap comedy karo, accha lagta hai (Do comedy films, you do it well). Do a Housefull 2 (2012) or Desi Boyz (2011). We love your action films as well.’ So this now is a complete departure. If I, Me Aur Main is not accepted by a big audience, I’m okay with that. The idea is to make a smart film. Someone asked me what a R100 crore film (Housefull 2 and Race 2) means to me. I said it means a lot. But doing a good film means more.
As a producer, you seem to favour content over stars.
If you don’t have stars, you believe in content. Others will think, get this star, get this actor. You know that’s happening on one end. But I’m trying to stick to the way we launched Ayushmann (Khurrana) and Yami (Gautam). We’re launching three more newcomers in a film called Banana; we are launching two others after that and producing another film with Ayushmann. The idea is to get new people in and have fun.
Vicky Donor (2012) picked up quite a few awards, but you were not around to collect them.
I didn’t deserve anything. I think Ayushmann, Juhi (Chaturvedi, writer) and Shoojit (Sircar, director) deserved it. I’m happy taking a back seat. Vicky Donor was one film. We need to make three-four such films and be consistent for people to say I’m good enough. As a producer, I want to marry commerce with content. That brings respectability. I’m not saying it as a disrespect to fun films; people loved Housefull. Just draw a balance.

What is your personal life like?
The way I lead my life is pretty similar to how you guys lead yours. I used to board the 8.57 am fast train from Andheri to Churchgate. So I never dissociate myself from people. I am still a media planner in my head. I still believe that my salary will be cut if I’m late. My salary used to be Rs. 13,800, and Rs. 500 would be cut if I was 15 minutes late. 
Given your love for bikes, why weren’t you at Goa’s biker fest?
I was supposed to be there, but I was not in town. Abroad, I go for the moto GPs, the bike races, because I get a chance to ride a motorcycle on the track and that’s the only place I can go at 305-310 kmph. Those babies go really fast!
Four-five years back, when people asked about your personal life, about Bipasha (Basu), you used to get guarded. Do you handle it better now?
Yes, I’m more settled now in my mind and in my life. I have also heard it so often that I have become desensitised to it. I am at a good space in my mind. I am happy.
Are you more open about your life now because Priya (Runchal) is not part of the industry?
I am slightly more open now. Time is the best healer and the past has gone by. I also think that, being a producer, now people take me more seriously. For example, till Housefull 2, I used to be standing in the mall throwing CDs to promote the film. Then I wondered why we are doing this. Have we gone mad? Standing in a mall and throwing CDs? With 15 people throwing CDs, it’s like a battle going on. With Vicky Donor, I said I don’t want to promote films like that. I will not follow the herd mentality.

Big B choked with emotions while holding tri-colour

Amitabh Bachchan
Amitabh Bachchan was choked with emotions while shooting a scene for Prakash Jha's Satyagraha. The scene required the actor to hold aloft the Indian flag and Big B was emotionally choked while enacting the scene. On his blog, Big B wrote, "What is it about National Flags and National Anthems, that brings that undeclared emotion within us? Why is it that when we hold our tricolor, sing our 'jan gan man ..', that we choke with emotion. What makes those hardened athletes that stand on the victory podium during the Olympic medal ceremony, drop a tear as their nations' flag climbs up on the flagstaff in a stadium filled to capacity. Why do I feel similar today at the shooting, even though it is the enactment of a scene for the film that I work on - 'Satyagraha' !A sense of pride, honor, possession, … a sense that what I hold belongs to us the citizens of my country - we Indians !! This flag … this tricolor … this emblem of our identity … is mine !"

The Attacks of 26/11 Day 2 (Saturday) Box Office Collections

The Attacks of 26/11 failed to show any increase in the box office numbers on its Day 2. The RGV film based on the real incidents of 26/11 Mumbai Attacks had made an opening day box office collection of 1.45 Crores. Come Saturday and the movie made another 1.70 Crores. Post its 2 Day run at the domestic box office The Attacks of 26/11 has managed to make just 3.15 Crores.

Despite 2 new releases this weekend, Kai Po Che seems to be the only movie doing some decent business at the box office. John Abraham’s I Me Aur Main has seen an equal fate as that of The Attacks of 26/11. It seems highly unlikely that any of the 2 new releases will see any growth on Sunday.

Kai Po Che (7 days) first week collection at Box Office

Kai Po Che 1st week collection at Box OfficeHindi movie Kai Po Che (KPC) starring newcomers like Sushant Singh Rajput and Raj Kumar Yadav in leads, has concluded the first week with a superb business at the Indian Box Office. The movie has topped the domestic collection chart, beating Zila Ghaziabad starring Sanjay Dutt, Vivek Oberoi and Arsad Warsi in leads.
Kai Po Che, which had massive promotions, opened to a superb response at the multiplexes across the country when compared to single screens. The Abhishek Kapoor directed-movie showed a huge growth on Saturday and Sunday. It collected approximately Rs 18.10 crores nett at the domestic Box Office in the first weekend. Its breakup is Rs 4.50 cr on Fri, Rs 6.25 cr on Sat and Rs 7.35 cr on Sun.
When everyone was thinking that its business would go down on weekdays, Kai Po Che maintained rock-steady collections. The movie registered very good amount of occupancy on Monday and its footfalls were almost equal to that of its opening day. On weekdays, it has collected Rs 11.4 crores, taking its first week total to Rs 29.50 crores nett. Its breakup is Rs 3.25 cr on Mon, Rs 2.95 cr on Tue, Rs 2.70 cr on Wed and Rs 2.50 cr on Thu.
However, two much-awaited movies like The Attacks of 26/11 and I, Me aur Main have released in theatres today and they are expected to slow down its business. But Taran Adarsh says that it will once again top the chart in the second weekend. The Bollywood trade analyst tweets, "Update: #KaiPoChe expected to dominate the domestic BO for the second consecutive weekend, as per early trends."

Jimi Hendrix's posthumous album to be released after 40 years

More than 40 years after Jimi Hendrix’s death, a new album of previously-unreleased material from the guitar virtuoso will be released on Tuesday.
The posthumous album follows the success of the rock guitar icon’s new single Somewhere, which went to number one in the US Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart last month
The material for the album has been plucked from a Hendrix musical vault that producers say has survived the test of time.
People, Hell And Angels is billed as a collection of 12 previously-unreleased studio performances by Hendrix, Sky News reported
But fans note that some of the music has emerged in other forms since his death in London at the age of 27 from an accidental drug overdose.
The album arrives with the simultaneous release of newly-struck mono vinyl editions of early Hendrix classics Are You Experienced and Axis: Bold As Love.
The tracks on People, Hell and Angels were planned as a follow-up to the influential guitar player’s 1968 chart-topping album Electric Ladyland.
Feeling constrained by the limitations of the Jimi Hendrix Experience trio (which included drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding), the guitarist had already started working with an eclectic group of musicians.
They included the Buffalo Springfield’s Stephen Stills, drummer Buddy Miles, saxophonist Lonnie Youngblood and bassist Billy Cox, with whom Hendrix had served in the US military.
The resulting sessions, culled from 1968 and 1969, form the basis of People, Hell And Angels which is co-produced by Janie Hendrix, original engineer and mixer Eddie Kramer and long-time Hendrix historian John McDermott.

A couple of days ago, Salman was first spotted at the Saif Belhasa Driving Institute in Dubai to shoot a scene. Soon enough, one of his fans used his Twitter account to confirm the same. “In fact, he also immediately uploaded an amateur video (which isn’t very clearly shot) of Salman’s presence and shoot at Belhasa.

Ramu isn't happy with the reviews of The Attacks of 26 /11

irector Ram Gopal Varma took to a micro-blogging to express his anger towards film critics

Ram Gopal Varma's recent film, The Attacks of 26/11, which is based on the horrific nights of 26/11/2008, has not received good reviews from the critics. While few rubbished the film as just another RGV film with lack of details, few have also rated it as only watchable. The film tells the tale of the night when ten armed terrorists attacked Mumbai and left the world shocked forever.

Though RGV had kept in mind minute details while filming it, he hasn't been getting good reviews about it. From what kind of shoes to the kind of rifles used int he film, he and the producers had kept a track of everything, but in vain. RGV took to twitter to express his anger. "Its amazing 2 c wht joy ppl get in running dwn a film,,, frm critics relishing 2 rip it 2 columnists hurrying 2 bury u all anyways (sic)." the director wrote. Though he seemed to be optimistic about such criticisms, Ramu further added, "Its difficult to say whether kasab got more pleasure in killing people or the people who are trying to kill 26/11 are getting more pleasure (sic)". The film has also received modest openings at theatres. Reports suggest only 10 per cent occupancy at Mumbai multiplexes and cancellation of shows at single screens.
