Many of our B-town beauties would hit the panic button if they didn’t have atleast one movie in hand, and even sign up for mediocre projects in desperation (no faults of theirs, blame it on the rat-race). But this Khan man has a strange way of planning his career. Well, call him an idiot if you please, we think he’d love that too. After enjoying one of the biggest successes of Indian cinema, Aamir has pulled the brakes on his career. Currently he is only focussed on his wife’s directorial debut, Dhobhi Ghat, and his next production Peepli Live. Soon after that all his attention will be on nephew, Imran’s Delhi Belly. So dearies, chances are that we won’t be seeing AK in a full-fledged role till 2012. Hmmm… suddenly ‘all izz not well’ with your fans, AK. C’mon, you can’t do this to them, yaar.
So while most filmmakers are still looking for ways to approach their actors on the issue, Nadiadwala has taken stringent steps to assure that no member of the cast or the crew will leak any kind of details about his project ‘Anjaana Anjaani’ on any networking site.
The producer took the strict decision after he saw a constant inflow of pictures and information being put up on the said site. And with his both lead actors Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor being active users of the site, Sajid had little choice but to impose his will.
Confirming the news, Sajid told a daily, “I actually took the decision to forbid my cast and crew from putting any information on websites after an incident that happened with Sajid Khan, my director of ‘Housefull’. We were doing a photo-session with the film’s stars. We weren’t even finished and Sajid Khan had already put one of the pictures on the site. I was horrified. That’s when I decided it was time to make the confidentiality clause a legal issue in all my contracts.”
Regretting the lack of privacy among stars, Sajid further added, “I remember when my father produced JP Dutta’s Ghulami, we’d stand outside Dharmendra’s van for hours waiting for him to emerge so we could see what he wore, how he styled his hair, what watch he had on, etc. Today the stars volunteer all this information on the social networks even before the director takes his first shot. I think all of us need to make confidentiality compulsory for every film."
Well, looks like Piggy Chops will have all work and no play on this one!
As soon as Big B expressed his willingness to become a brand ambassador to promote Kerala tourism last month, a letter to this effect was written to him, Balakrishnan added. "Yesterday (Wednesday) I got his letter stating that he is willing to become the brandambassador and for that he is prepared to start a dialogue. I have asked the tourism director to have a discussion to this effect," said Balakrishnan.
Big B was in the state for a few functions last month. It was then, during an interview to a TV channel, that the actor said he would gladly accept the offer to become Keralatourism’s brand ambassador.
" I tried to get in touch with him, but I was told he was out of station. The government is willing to go ahead with him and the final decision to this effect will be made after knowing all the conditions he puts forward," said (IANS)
That’s exactly what happened on the sets of Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Paathshaala’, where a shoot for a 1 minute clip involving small kids and some puppies turned into a picnic of sorts for the cast and crew!
The scene involved a child actor who is playing with some puppies in the school premises, while Shahid and the other kids look on. The crew assembled a few puppies, played with them for a while to get them familiar and even fed them well to get their attention. However, just as everything was ready and the Director all set to take the shot, the puppies would fall asleep, leaving the team in a lurch. After a while, Shahid and the kids would again feed the dogs, play with them to get them into action, and just when they’d be ready for the shot, the puppies would run away, scattering in all directions!
This repeated a couple times, and it finally took a whole long day to get the desired shot. Meanwhile, Shahid and the kids had a field day, playing all the while with the cute puppies.
Talking about the incident, Director Milind Ukey said, “It was a really funny situation we faced that day. We’d never imagined that such a small thing would require so much struggle! But in the end, everyone, especially the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it was all worth it”
Presented by Eros International and Produced by Paperdoll Entertainment, Paathshaala hits theatres on 16th April.
Boney says his wife spends 4-5 hours a day painting. “It is generally in the evening. After she has finished with household duties and is done with our daughters’ homework, Sri locks herself away to paint,” adds Boney. “After me and the kids, painting is her main passion. Now her paintings have reached a level of professionalism where they can fetch a handsome price.” Where does this new passion leave Sridevi’s plans to return to acting? Boney replies, “Sri has been acting since the age of four. She is the only child artiste to have reached the number one position in Hindi films. She will return to acting only when something special comes her way.”
He was told to return to Mumbai. But the actor decided not to and within 48 hours was back shooting, because if he had left, around 500 artists including Salman would be stuck doing nothing on the set. Sonu meanwhile is surviving on painkillers and with padding inside his nose. The pain he can cope with, what is worrying him more is whether the swelling will show on screen. Actually he need not worry… the computer today is like part of the cast and crew and can perform just as well!
Investing in properties seems to be Salman Khan’s latest passion. The Veer star has recently bought a spacious office at Mumbai’s plush Linking road in Khar. The actor will conduct all professional meetings in his new office and operate from there from now on. Apparently Sallu even has plans to venture into the real estate development business soon.
“Salman wants to pursue diverse interests. And getting into the construction and real estate business is on his agenda. In fact, he has already zeroed in on a site in Borivali, a suburb in Mumbai. Along with his partners, the actor plans to construct a residential complex there. Sohail, Arbaaz and Atul Agnihotri are all a part of this venture,” said a source.
Not too long ago, Salman Khan invested in a plush duplex apartment on Carter Road in Bandra. The interiors of the apartment are being done up now.
The film is a dark comedy and will be shot entirely in Florida, USA. It will have other Hollywood actors and actresses too. The film will speak about underworld, politics, crime, stealing and has a tagline, “Betrayal is a contact sport…”
It will go on floor soon and expected to release on February 2011.
