This is the first time in Bollywood that an actor is promoting other actor’s movie and that’s also when he has no connections with it. Everybody knows that Aamir Khan and Salman Khan have been good friends for a while now. But it is needless to say that Salman’s generosity and love for Aamir is truly special.

The story goes that Salman was so impressed by Aamir’s performance in Ghajini that he decided to gift him two special paintings made by none other than himself. The paintings were unveiled by the leading lady and Aamir’s co-star in Ghajini, Asin. The actress unveiled the Aamir Khan’s Ghajini look by Salman at the INOX at Nariman point in South Mumbai on 24th December.

The painting was special for her not only because she is the leading lady in the film but also because it was made by Salman, with whom she may soon be paired with in her next flick ‘London Dreams’.

Asin said that she was highly impressed by the creative talent of the star, who can paint so well’.

Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi: Review

Let’s start the talk of Aditya Chopra’s ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ with its end. Don’t get anxious, I am not revealing the climax of the film. The story about, is after the climax. The film ends, but the pictures immerging on the screen after the movie, increases it’s TRP. Hundreds of audience in the theatre, stand up from their seats and enjoy it. So don’t miss to catch the full interest of the pictures running and the commentary by Surendra Sahni in Shahrukh’s voice.
Well, before the film’s release Shahrukh Khan had said in many interviews that the film will remind the audience about Rishikesh Mukherjee. King Khan was true to some extent. Amid films with hogwash comedy, vulgar script, forced exposure of heroines, without reason kiss scenes, Aditya Chopra has served a very good and decent film. But it would take time for him to match the level of the legend Rishikesh Mukherjee. In comparison, the simplicity of films characters does not reach to the height of expectations and even at some places the film’s story doesn’t go very well. Beside this we can predict that the film is going to be a big hit on ticket window.
A speck of film’s story is inspired by Golmaal. In that Amol Palekar changes his identity to save his job and here Shahrukh Khan change himself to get his wife’s love. The most interesting thing is that, the director of films like Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge and Mohabbatein has started this movie with Shahrukh Anushka’s marriage. After a compelled marriage a realist man working as a govt employee in a company named Punjab Power changes his individuality to get his wife’s love. In the whole story the girl finds herself hanging between her new love and her husband but at last she gets her fate, ‘her rab’.
There are three key characters in the movie. Shahrukh as Surendra Sahni, Anushka as Tani and Vinay Pathak as Boby, imitating the character of hair-stylist Javed Habib. Though they are interesting in their roles but sometimes Sahrukh seems to be overacting a bit. Vinay Pathak has also overacted somewhere but still his comedy is thoroughly enjoyable and newcomer Anushka gets a really well etched character to perform and it despite being her first film, she comes across an absolute natural. Through her debut Anushka will taste the success of hit but to show her beautiful the team has done a lot of hard work. Salim-Sulaiman has given a wonderful music. Haule-haule and dance pe chance is already in the chartbuster but the big thing is that the director who has always seen music as the soul of a movie has not tried to put so many songs in the movie. However, what needs to be remembered is that Aditya Chopra has been one of the pioneers when it comes to song picturisation.The film is shot around the streets of Amritsar.
After Dilwale and Mohabbatein, this film is surely going to be the directorial hetric for Aditya Chopra and Aditya camp has celebrated their hatric with the picturiastion of the number featuring Kajol, Rani, Bipasha, priety zinta and Lara with Shahrukh. Well, to compete with ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’ there is no other film on Box-office this week. You can probably go and watch this film once.

Raja Chaudhary In Trouble Again

It seems that the onscreen rivalry among ‘Bigg Boss’ season finalists is still continuing off-screen. The controversial finalist Raja Chaudhary has developed a strange knack for getting into trouble. First he jailed for misbehaving with girls at a party, after that molestation charges against him was launched by a tarot card reader and now he is accused of allegedly trashing Zulfi’s boutique ‘Flo’ in Oshiwara and misbehaving with women at his club in Sahara Star.

Speaking about the incident Zulfi says, “He came to my boutique at Oshiwara at 3.45 pm on Monday, when I was not there. In my absence he misbehaved with my staff, abused them and went away with some clothes without paying a penny. I was left with no option but to take necessary action.

But Raja is denying of the matter and is saying that he is innocent and Zulfi is exaggerating the issue. Through ‘Bigg Boss’ Raja had earned some public support but it seems that he has lost it now.

Whatever, but it is sure that he is still in aggressive Bigg Boss mood.

Priyanka's 12 Roles

Priyanka Chopra is all set to present what no other Indian actress has ever presented on big screen. She is about to play twelve different characters in one film. This Bollywood bala has managed to score the opportunity to play multiple characters in her next flick ‘What’s Your Rashee?’. The movie will be based on Astrology. Priyanka’s co-star in ‘Love Story 2050’ Harman Baweja will star opposite to her.

‘What’s Your Raashee?’ is inspired from novel Kimball Ravenswood in which the author creates a wide display of characters and sets up some devilishly comical plots through the novel. The director Ashutosh Gowarikar who has mostly helmed realistic films is trying his hand at comedy for the first time.

This is what something different Piggy Chops!

Ashutosh Wins 'Bigg Boss', Gets 1 Crore

‘Bigg Boss 2’ winner Ashutosh Kaushik has presented a true story of ‘rags to reaches’. After an eventful stay of 94 days in Bigg Boss house, Ashutosh Kaushik emerged the winner. He belongs to a small town of Saharanpur, in U.P where his only source of income until six months back was a tiny dhaba. Life took a u-turn for him when he won the fifth season of MTV’s reality show ‘Roadies’. Ashutosh survived three evictions while he was in Bigg Boss house. He was often accused of using foul language inside the house and criticized for his unhealthy living habits. Though he shared a good relationship with almost every member in the house but his closeness with former ‘Miss India’ Diana Hayden became the topic of gossip inside the house and caused much flap in the media.

Ashutosh was one of the three finalists on the show after Rahul Mahajan took voluntary exit. He walked away with Rs 1 crore in cash on Saturday night. Raja Chaudhary became the first runner-up and model-actor Zulfi Syed was declared the second runner-up.

Rahul Mahajan won the ‘Bade dilwala’ in the house award and General Motors presented him a car.
Thanks to the ‘Big Boss’ who has made life a lot easier for this small towner.
