Is that Kangna?

Kangna Ranaut stands alone among her contemporaries as the only girl who doesn’t need to drastically change her body type or make-up to look different.

There is just something intrinsically in her features that changes all the time. According to her it is because all her features are small and no one part of her face dominates the others.

Be that as it may in this still from No Problem she looks almost unrecognisable from the girl we are used to seeing.

Tell her that and she replies that even her mother tells her that she is constantly changing. “This will continue to happen for the next few years.

She promises, “till my features finally settle down to what they will be for the rest of my life.” She recounts how.

When attending red carpet functions, she often passes the bank of photographers who realise who she is only because of her publicist accompanying her.

Ken takes no chances with Jiah

It seems that Jiah Khan’s ghost has come back to haunt director Ken Ghosh and the crew of Chance Pe Dance.

After the bitter experience that Jiah Khan went through when she was unceremoniously dumped from Chance Pe Dance, she is now visible in the film.

Jiah shot for around 20 days for the film before she was replaced by Genelia D’souza.  Our source said, “Yesterday afternoon, there was a trial for the cast and crew of the film in Bandra.

While watching the rough cut, they noticed that Jiah Khan was spotted in the background in one of the songs.

Ken Ghosh panicked and asked the operator to rewind the shot and his worst fear came true.  He was disappointed as he could not edit the shot as it was part of the song.

The technical error can’t be reshot as they can’t make the set and get the same dancers back for the song.

In fact, all the portions that Jiah had shot for were chopped or Genelia was replaced digitally.  nNow the entire team is trying to work out how Jiah can be removed from the song.

The technical crew is working overtime trying to either pixilate the portion where Jiah is visible or erase her from the frame. In either case, it will be a creative liberty.”

Ken Ghosh has decided that discretion is the better part of valour. He said, “I don’t know where you have heard this news and I do not wish to comment on this.”

John Abraham with Hollywood hotties

One of the best looking hunks of Bollywood is now set to team up with a Hollywood hottie.

John Abraham will pair with a Hollywood actress in director Shirish Kunder’s much-touted ‘Alien Sahib’.

If reports are to be believed, Kunder is hoping to rope in either Scarlett Johansson or Anne Hathaway for the film which will be made for global audiences.

The director plans to use the fusion 3D camera technique for the flick and will be signing a lot of technicians from the west for it.

But the big surprise is indeed the presence of a Hollywood actress.  “The female protagonist is. A foreign national so we decided to cast a Hollywood actress for it,” Kunder is quoted as saying in a media report.

Though Shirish refuses to divulge any name, he’s flying to Los Angeles to meet the agents of a couple of Hollywood actresses. With the meeting of talents from two the biggest filmmaking industries in the world, the possibility of a Hollywood actress working in a Bollywood movie is much more today than it was a few years ago.

Just earlier this year, we saw Akshay Kumar romancing Denise Richards and rubbing shoulders with Sylvester Stallone in Kambakkht Ishq. John already has the advantage of having had international exposure through Deepa Mehta’s film Water which was nominated for the Oscars two years back.

Aamir Khan spins some magic, overwhelms Kareena

Aamir Khan recently gifted a Rs. 25, 000 handloom saree to Kareena Kapoor made by handloom workers of Chanderi village in Madhya Pradesh. Kareena was overwhelmed by the present.  Kareena was asked to fly down to Madhya Pradesh for two days.She had to travel for 14 hours to reach Chanderi. All this while, she didn’t know where they were going and all she knew was that they had to meet Aamir. So when she received the black and gold traditional saree, like the ones the weavers used to make for the nawabs, she was overjoyed.

According to Kareena, Aamir Khan wanted her to have the saree because she is a style icon and she should promote the work of these handloom industries. The ancestors of the workers used to work for royal families.

Kareena and Aamir went to the workers’ homes, interacted with them and saw that they live in miserable conditions and make only about Rs. 50 while the designers borrow their work and sell it for Rs. 30-40, 000. Aamir has invited some of the workers to the premiere of 3 Idiots.

Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor are an item?

It’s truly an Ajab ghazab prem kahani. The latest whirlwind of gossip in B-Town says Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor are in love but they’ve been concealing it from everyone. The reason, say the rumour mills, is that the duo could not make their relationship public earlier because Ranbir was dating Deepika Padukone and Katrina was with Salman Khan.However, now that Ranbir has split from Deepika and Katrina is alleged to be single, the two are taking their ‘friendship’ to the romantic level and have started exchanging SMSes and gifts. Rumour has it that Ranbir has already gifted a diamond-studded heart-shaped pendant to Katrina and she fondly wears it everyday.

On top of it, Ranbir keeps calling Kat now and then to inquire about her health. She’s been under the weather lately because of her low hemoglobin levels. A tabloid even goes on to allege that Katrina has visited Ranbir’s house and met his parents.

One thing that makes these assertions doubtful is that Katrina and Ranbir haven’t been spotted together after they finished promoting Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. And there’s a clique in the industry which believes Katrina will never turn her back on Salman. So, are Katrina and Ranbir an item? We’ll figure out soon. Keep watching this space.

It broke my heart – Priyanka Chopra

What’s Your Raashee? might have earned Priyanka Chopra a name in the Guinness Book of World Records for.

The 12 roles she played but not without a heartbreak. Now, she admitted that the failure of the film broke her heart.

Priyanka was hurt by the performance of What’s Your Raashee? at the box office because she had put in lots of efforts and hard work in doing her 12 roles.

She said that it would have been more painful had she not received appreciation for her performance. It maybe recalled.

That Priyanka got lots of accolades for her role in the hit film Kaminey starring Shahid Kapoor and directed by Vishal Bhardwaj.

But her next film What’s Your Raashee? directed by Ashutosh Gowariker with Harman Baweja as the hero, failed terribly at the box office in spite of the hype it enjoyed.

All is not well with Katrina Kaif

It seems the sexy lady Katrina Kaif has taken up too much work and pressure of late, as this is clearly reflecting on her health now.

It is heard that Katrina is not keeping well and it is because of that she is postponing or cancelling all her scheduled assignments. Knowing that Kat is a stickler for keeping her appointments this has indeed come as a shocker.

The speculations on her health or rather ill health were confirmed by her absence at the clean-up drive event where she was appointed as the chief guest.

But didn’t show up. Our reliable source informed, “Katrina Kaif is not keeping well and the details of her illness cannot be divulged”.

Earlier, it was Amitabh Bachchan whose workaholic nature took a toll on his health and now Karina Kaif seems to be following in his footsteps. Recently, Katrina completed her film “Rajneeti’, which is a political drama. In the film, she is pairing with chocolate boy Ranbir Kapoor.

Aamir Khan 3 IDIOTS weaves magic at Pranpur, goes Dada ke desh!!

Aamir Khan, the perfectionist super star of bollywood who is on a promotional spree for his upcoming flick ‘3 Idiots’, appeared.

At a small village of Pranpur in Chanderi district of Madhya Pradesh and  created magic by weaving a sari with Kareena Kapoor.

The gutsy Khan was there not only to promote his upcoming Rajkumari Hirani’s magnum opus ‘3 Idiots’, but also to highlight the plight of handloom weavers engaged in this fine art of making saris.

Sources say that as part of his encouragement to weavers, Aamir Khan not only bought a number of saris from them, but has already approached some of the best designers of the country to help these weavers in marketing their exquisitely made saris.

The sari that Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor weaved at Pranpur (it has names of both superstars) will be sent for auction through an NGO and the proceeds will go towards helping the development of Pranpur village. Besides Aamir and Kareena, Sharman Joshi, R Madhavan and Mona Singh also play pivotal roles in upcoming ‘3 Idiots’.

Aamir Khan had roped in co-star Kareena Kapoor at Pranpur as he wanted her to become the unofficial ambassador of saris woven by the handloom workers of the village. Kareena, who plays the love interest of Aamir Khan in ‘3 Idiots’, not only agreed to increase the use of handloom saris in her daily routine but was also thrilled at the opportunity.

However, Aamir Khan had already decided to increase the excitement of Kareena Kapoor by gifting her a beautiful handloom sari of worth Rs 25,000, woven by these workers. These types of black and gold saris (gifted to Kareena) were used to be made by these weavers during the days of Nawabs, who were the original patrons of these artistes. Aamir Khan even decided to gift one of these saris to his wife Kiran Rao.

Later, Kareena Kapoor revealed next clue for Aamir Khan’s fans which was that ‘Aamir Khan would be moving to Dada Ke Desh’. Now, it is for the fans to guess the real meaning of ‘Dada Ke Desh’ and proceed to that place if they want to meet the superstar.

It may be recalled that Aamir Khan has been playing this hide and seek game with his fans as part of ‘Alternative Reality Game’. The main purpose of the game is to promote his upcoming flick ‘3 Idiots’ in a unique way and create a strong buzz (as he had done with his earlier flick ‘Ghajini’ and its special hair cut) in favor of the film.

The film is slated for a worldwide release on December 25. The film has Aamir Khan playing half his age and studying in one of the prestigious I I Ts of the country. Sharman Joshi and R Madhavan play his classmates in the film. The film is directed by Rajkumar Hirani of ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ fame and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra.

Is Shahid avoiding Amrita?

Amrita Rao and Shahid Kapoor have worked together in Ishq Vishk, Vivaah and Waah! Life ho Toh Aisi and they have done a few commercials.

They have also been friends since their first film. If rumours are to be believed, Kareena Kapoor wasn’t too happy with.

The closeness between Shahid and Amrita as the two were linked during the making of Vivaah.

Both Amrita Rao and Shahid Kapoor are on Twitter. Genelia D’souza, Priyanka Chopra, Priyanka’s cousin Parineeti, Atul Kasbekar, Tarun Mansukhani, Siddharth Malhotra and Ken Ghosh are among. The fifteen people that Shahid is following on Twitter. He is not following his former co-star and ‘friend’ Amrita Rao.

A source tells us, ‘Amrita has tweeted quite a few times on Shahid’s page but he hasn’t responded. He is following Priyanka and Genelia but not her, even though she is his first co-star. Amrita is following him and has written on his wall many times.

She feels Shahid is ignoring her and that hasn’t gone down very well with her. She has always said only good things about SK and likewise, he has always praised her and said that he would love to work with her again.’

‘It’s pretty childish of Amrita to feel bad if Shahid isn’t replying to her tweets. Why doesn’t she just call him and check with him. Shahid is quite a private person. He is on Twitter only to promote his movie and interact with his fans. Sometimes, he tweets his friends for fun but the page is mainly for the promotion of Chance Pe Dance. He prefers talking to his friends on the phone and meeting them to catching up with them in the virtual world,’ concluded our source.
