Agneepath, a superhit!

Agneepath is a HIT! Though there was a slight fall in the collections of Friday, it picked up very well on Saturday and Sunday and is still going strong.
On 26th Jan, the film opened to a bombarding start, breaking all records of the first-day earning, collecting a whopping sum of Rs. 23 crore. Friday, 27th Jan, was a bit shaky as the movie collected jus Rs 12 crore. However, the amount raised to Rs 14.5 crore on Saturday and Rs 17.5 crore on Sunday.
The weekend saw a total collection of Rs. 67.5 crore.
The next big flick will be Ek Mein Aur Ek Tu, starring Kareena Kapoor and Imran Khan, releasing on the 10th of Feb.

The BIG fight between SRK and Shirish Kunder!

To celebrate the success of Agneepath, Sanjay Dutt threw a big bash on Sunday night. But the big bash soon turned into a nightmare when Shahrukh Khan allegedly slapped Shirish Kunder, the husband of Farah Khan.
If eyewitnesses are to be believed, while Shirish was already enjoying the party, gulping down a couple of drinks, SRK walked in pretty late. Seeing Shahrukh, Kunder started following him everywhere, passing stupid comments at the actor.
Naturally SRK got irritated and apparently pushed Kunder on a sofa, first trying to talk to him. But when Shirish continued to retort back. That’s when Shahrukh lost his cool and slapped him.
Shirish Kunder is reported to have said: “Shahrukh punched and jumped on me. And he had three bodyguards with him. I don’t know what got him. I was numb with shock so I couldn’t react. He kept screaming at me, ‘What do you think of yourself? I’ll see to it that you’re out of this industry’.”
Shirish Kunder’s wife, Farah Khan, who was SRK’s once upon a time good friend, said in a statement,
“Shahrukh has always told me that physical abuse is the worst way to sort out a problem, and that it means the person who’s hitting has either a personal or professional crisis going on. So it saddens me to see him doing the same.”
Buzz had it hat, Shirish Kunder also filed a police complaint against Shahrukh Khan. However, denying the reports Shirish said,
“Thanks for all your concern & wishes. We are very grateful. Contrary to rumours, we have no intention of filing a FIR or police complaint,” Shirish Kunder wrote on his Twitter page.
Shahrukh Khan, however, chose not to comment on this episode.

Priyanka too busy to enjoy success of ‘Agneepath’.

“Agneepath” has opened to an awesome response and ever since then the cast of the film can’t stop partying. However, the lead actress is too busy to enjoy the success of the film.
Well, Priyanka Chopra is very busy shooting for her unprecedented opening but actress Priyanka Chopra, who plays Kaali in the film, doesn’t have time to celebrate the success as she is busy shooting for her next film “Barfi!”.
Priyanka has given all her dates to “Barfi!” and is very busy shooting for it. Directed by Anurag Basu, the film also stars Ranbir Kapoor.
“She has been working round the clock. She hasn’t been able to enjoy even her success as she is shooting in two shifts. Even yesterday she had to request ‘Barfi!’ to let her leave early to attend press conference,” a spokesperson for Priyanka said.
Although Priyanka is happy with the response to “Agneepath”, she is upset about missing out on all the fun and celebrations.
“Priyanka is not able to go for any of the success celebrations or parties. She is very upset about it. However, she is happy that the film has done so well,” she said.

Did Aishwarya do a cover shoot?

Till last week, we heard that Aishwarya Rai has been rejecting several offers coming her way, because of her two-months-old baby. However, the latest is that the actress has posed for the cover page of the January edition of Elegant Living magazine, which is a US based publication.
On the cover, Ash is all decked up in a white suit and a hat. She looks quite slim and trim. So we wonder when did the shoot happen!
Buzz has it that the mag, having Ash on its cover, is just a publicity stunt so as to attract people to purchase their copies with the hope of getting a glimpse of recent images of Ash and her baby.
Currently, when the entire nation is curious to know what’s cooking in the Bachchan pariwaar, whats delaying the formal naming of the baby, etc etc, having Aishwarya on the maazne cover is the best way to get its copies sold, like hot cakes.
These marketing gimmick , i tell you.!

Kareena knows how Saif looks bare bodied!

When it comes to opening up about her relationship with Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor gets very excited and feels free, taking about it. For Bebo, the words possessiveness and insecurity is not in her dictionary.
In a casual chat with Karan Johar on the show ‘A date with Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’, Kareena was asked a few discomforting question by Johar.
When kareena was asked, “How do you feel when you see Saif in an intimate scene with another hot actress? Say in Race 2, Saif has a bare-body scene with a Deepika in bikini, what would be your first thought?”
Kareena replied: “I’d be like ‘Wow! How hot Saif looks’,” “I know how he looks bare bodied!”
Kareena further added, “I am quite secure in my relationship with Saif and though I don’t want to say too much too soon, I am quite content!”
Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor will soon be seen together in their upcoming flick, Agent Vinod . If reports are true, the couple may even enter matrimonial bliss, this year.

Salman Khan to set free 400 inmates

Salman Khan is truly a man with a heart of gold. Re[ports have it that, the actor has come to the rescue of about 400 inmates who continue to languish in jail, despite having completed their term.
It so happens that, when a convict is sentenced to imprisonment, he is asked to pay a certain amount in the form of fine, besides serving the jail term. Now, if the convict is unable to pay the fine, he will have to serve an additional term. Through ‘Being Human’, Salman’s charitable organization, convicts who are unable to pay the fine, will be set free, as the organization has offered to pay the amount.
It is heard that the actor has written to the jail authority about it and is waiting for its clearance from the higher authorities.
A total of Rs 40 lakh will be submitted by the foundation, to the jails across the state of Uttar Pradesh, setting 400 inmates free.

Do NOT call Sanjay Dutt ‘Kancha Cheena'

Sanjay Dutt’s powerful performance in his latest film ‘Agneepath’, has definitely won millions of hearts. His name in the film, ‘Kancha Cheena’, has now become a synonym to a villain. However, Sanju baba is not very fond of the name Kancha.
Recently, Hirthik Roshan threw a big bash for the success of his latest film, ‘Agneepath’. Sanjay Dutt was a also a part of it. At around 2:30 am, after partying really hard, when Sanju walked out of the party, he was approached by a number of photographers. Suddenly, one of them shouted out ‘Kancha’ to attract his attention and click him.
Unlike Vidya Balan, who enjoys being called ‘Silk’, off screen, Sanjay Dutt seemed furious and snapped at the photographer. The actor’s behavior shocked the cameramen around him.
We wonder what’s the reason behind this.

Its raining awards for Ranbir and Vidya

Vidya Balan and Ranbir Kapoor have once again picked the best actor trophies at the annual Filmfare awards ceremony, for ‘The Dirty Picture’ and ‘Roscstar’, respectively. “Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara” bagged the best film honor.

Saif all praises for Bebo’s stunts

As reported earlier, Kareena Kapoor will be seen doing various stunts in her upcoming flick ‘Agent Vinod’. And guess who’s very happy with her? Well, he’s none other than Saif Ali Khan. He is all praises for his girlfriend and insists that Kareena is very good in doing stunts in his film.
Kareena wasn’t very keen on doing action or any kind of stunts prior to the film going on floors. However, in due course of time as the film started progressing, Bebo went on with the flow.
“She (Kareena Kapoor) had said she does not like doing action but she is very good at it. She has got pretty intense expression when she does it. She was very very good while doing it,” Saif Ali Khan said.
In Delhi, while shooting for an action sequence, the actress did injure herself quite a few times. Not just her but her beau Saif, was bruised too.
“I thought it (doing action) would be fun but every inch of my body was bruised and coloured in some amazing purple, yellow blotches…I had not seen something like this ever. I have done everything myself which I am excited about,” said the 41-year-old star.
Directed by Sriram Raghavan, Agent Vinod is a spy thriller, set to hit theaters in June, this year.

Sonu Sood regrets not being a part of Dabangg 2!

Chhedi Singh a.k.a Sonu Sood, who was outstanding as a villian in Dabangg and also won several awards for the same, will not be a part of the films sequel.
Producer Arbaaz Khan has replaced Sonu with Prakesh Raj, instead.
The actor regrets not being a part of Dabangg 2. Says the actor, “It was a creative call of the director and the script needed someone else but I am still part of the family. I wish I could have been part of ‘Dabangg 2′, but the script demanded someone else.”
This however, hasn’t caused any sort of tension between him and Salman Khan.“Salman and I are still together. We are still very good friends. A film is a very small thing to rip us apart,” he added.
Takling about his upcoming film, Sonu adds, “My next film will be with Naseeruddin Shah. It is titled ‘Maximum’. I am playing a cop in the film. The film is based in Mumbai.”

Deepika and Sidharth call it quits?

The last time Deepika Padukone and her billionaire boyfriend Sidhartha Mallya made a public appearance together was err eh errrrr, well, we guess at Arpita Khan’s party… It’s been almost three months now that the couple are seen together.
Things started to get evident when, Deepy wasn’t spotted at Sid’s new year bash. Even Sidharth was by his ladylove at her birthday party earlier this month.
A source closed to the star, talking about their strained relationship says, “Since August 2010, they have made several appearances together. But if you recall, they have been strangely cold and aloof while talking about their relationship. But all of us wanted to believe that they were headed for something stronger when Sidhartha dined with Deepika’s family.”
If rumors are to be believed, the tension between the couple started when Deepika signed a film opposite Ranbir Kapoor. Also it is heard that Ranbir Kapoor has been sending his ex gifts as a mark of their new-found friendship.
According to a few common friends, Sidhartha has talked about this tension to few of his friends that “the relationship is not working and heading nowhere.”
Deepika However, refused to comment.

Agneepath – No Fire in This One-- REVIEW

Agneepath, Agneepath…! The lines from the famous poem written by the late Harivanshrai Bachchan, the father of the “Superstar of the Millennium”, Amitabh Bachchan. Agneepath – the first film to come out of Dharma Productions, the film that fetched Amitabh Bachchan his first and only National Award, the film, which over the years has achieved a cult status, thanks to the Superstar’s fabulous portrayal of “Vijay Dinanath Chavan”, aye!
It was Yash Johar who produced this film in 1990 with the creative Mukul S. Anand at the helm. 22 years later, it is his son Karan Johar who remakes this film with the debutante director Karan Malhotra. So, how good is this attempt? Let me remind you that the original Agneepath didn’t fetch many rewards but awards.
First things first, this film is not a scene-to-scene remake of the original. Not all the original characters are reatined, and director Karan Malhotra reworked on the original script to cater to the audiences of 2012. And to be honest, the script actually falls flat, and leaves the audience with an incomplete experience.
The Story
Agneepath is a revenge drama. Vijay Dinanath Chavan, son of Master Dinanath Chavan are a happy family (including his mother) residing in Mandva, a small island, a little distance away from Mumbai. Master Dinanath is a well respected person in the village, as he works for the welfare of its residents by producing salt. Enters Kancha Cheena, son of the Zameendar of Mandva, who not only has an evil look but also evil ideas. Kancha finds out that the soil of Mandva is fertile enough to grow cocaine. So, he lures the villagers to submit their lands on a lease basis to him for he would set up a salt factory, and the villagers would profit from the factory. Master Dinanath, tells the villagers to not submit their lands to Kancha, for they could permanently lose them. Kancha plots an evil plan to get rid of Master Dinanath and eventually kills him with the little Vijay watching him. Vijay and his mother leave Mandva and come to Mumbai, and all Vijay wants now is to avenge his father’s death. The rest of the story is how gets his revenge over Kancha.
Hrithik Roshan as Vijay Dinanath Chavan is good, though not great. The director failed to extract the intensity that the character demands. Although I hate to compare his performance with Amitabh’s in the original, I would have to say the emotions that Amitabh portrayed in his character are missing in the adaptation. But nevertheless, Hrithik gives a wholehearted performance.
Sanjay Dutt as Kancha Cheena looks frightening for sure. But, his performance is somehow incomplete. Although he utters a few funny lines in pure Hindi, his characterization is flawed. Though he is a perfect match to Hrithik, as far as their muscles go, performance wise, the audience are left wanting.
Rishi Kapoor as Rauf Lala, well he is the surprise package! We all adore Rishi Kapoor for his acting skills but, in this one he plays a perfect bad guy and he just excels in this role of the ‘kasai’, and we are just going to end up admiring his acting skills even more. If for anything, you would have to watch Agneepath just for his performance.
Priyanka Chopra, who plays Kali doesn’t have a substantial role but plays her part with ease. Zarina Wahab as Hrithik’s mother is OK. Arish Bhiwandiwala, the boy who played the little Vijay Dinanath Chavan is very good. Om Puri as commisioner Gaitonde is fabulous.
Music doesn’t have a big part to play in the film. Although the background score by Ajay-Atul suits the bill. Cinematography by Kiran Deohans and Ravi K.Chandran is very good. Editing could have been a bit crispier as the runtime of the film is a little long. Screenplay by Karan Malhotra and Ila Dutta Bedi could have been better. Nothing new in the action department by Abbas Ali Moghul. Dialogues by Piyush Mishra need a special mention. The production values are very good.
This Agneepath has a couple of good performances by Hrithik and Rishi Kapoor that will leave the audiences awestruck, but the film falls flat as far as the content is concerned. The high that the original hits with regards to its emotions are amiss in the adaptation. But this one is going to be a money spinner for sure, thanks to the extensive promotion and ‘Chikni Chameli’.
A one-time watch, and do not go wanting to watch Big B reincarnated.

We absolutely loved Kareena Kapoor’s look at the recent Apsara Awards. The actress opted for a Paule Ka gown, pairing it with strappy black heels. The red lip color completed her look. Bebo kept it clean and simply, yet looked like a million dollar.

Kareena’s wedding preparations

Though Kareena and Saif are tight lipped about their BIG day, it is heard that the wedding preparations are on in full swing.
If buzz is to be believed, Bebo has placed an order for a royal neck piece, costing about 40 Lakh. The necklace is said to extend from her neck to her waist. Made with 400 gm gold with expensive gems studded on it, such kind of necklaces are generally worn by the royals.
The jewelery will be designed by a Rajkot-based Jeweler, who is pretty famous for designing such royal jewelery.
Ritu Kumar is said to be designing Bebo’s wedding attaire. It is also heard that Saif plans to gift Bebo a big diamond rock as her wedding gift.

Agneepath a Big Hit at the Box Office…

Agneepath is doing super awesome at the box office. It opened to a mind blowing response, with 90 percent of the cinema houses, houseful.
The film having received positive reviews from almost all film critics, is sure to emerge as the first blockbuster of 2012, with a four day weekend being its plus point.
The film is said to have broken the highest first-day collection record of Salman Khan’s ‘Bodyguard’, crossing the 21 crore mark.

And it’s Ranbir and Vidya, once again!!

First Look: ‘Talaash’ digital poster

Presenting to you the first official digital poster of Aamir Khan’s forthcoming film, ‘Talaash’. Buzz suggests that the film is a love triangle between the three leads, i.e. Aamir, Rani and Kareena.
According to a source, “It’s after 10 years that Aamir has reunited with Farhan (filmmaker Farhan Akhtar) and Ritesh (producer Ritesh Sidhwani) after Dil Chahta Hai. Also Aamir has teamed up with two of his favorite actresses again with whom he’s had the biggest hits in the past — Kareena Kapoor (3 Idiots) and Rani Mukerji (Ghulam)”
Prior to the launch of this digital poster, a number of fake posters were doing rounds all over the web world. Informs the source, “Ever since the film has started, several websites have been putting up fake or self-created posters for circulation. Releasing this poster online now, would keep that in check as people can have a direct access to the originals.”
Talaash is a suspense thriller, having Aamir Khan essay the role of a cop. The film is being directed by Reema Kagti and is slated for a summer release.

First Look: Agent Vinod

And finally we present you the first trailer of one of the most awaited films of 2012, Agent Vinod. The film stars Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor in the lead. The first look surely looks promising.
What we could figure out from the trailer is that Saif falls prey to different situations and in every situation, the one and only thing that his captor seems interested in is, his identity. Kareena’s role in the trailer is not very clear. However, the actress is seen questioning Saif on his identity, too.
The film promises a lot of action and we hear that Bebo too will be seen doing a few stunts here and there.
Agent Vinod is a spy thriller shot in Mumbai, Morocco and Latvia. Directed by Sriram Raghavan and produced by Saif and his partner Dinesh Vijan, the film is slated to release on March 23, 2012.
Here is the trailer!!!

Bollywood on ‘Agneepath’… A must watch!

January 2012 hasn’t seen any interesting releases yet. However, now, all eyes are fixed on 26th Jan, i.e. tomorrow, as Agneepath, one of the most awaited flicks of the year, is set to hit theaters. Going by the posters, trailers and the music, the film starring Hrithik Roshan as Vijay Dinanath Chauhan and Sanjay Dutt as the villain Kancha Cheena, is surely going to have theaters packed
If trade analysts are to be gone by, Agneepath is said to open with a positive response. It is heard that pre bookings have already and the film promises to make big bucks. More than the lead star, Hrithik, the film looks like it belongs to the villian, Kancha Cheena aka Sanjay Dutt.
Last night, a special screening of Agneepath was held and celebs couldn’t stop raving about the film.
Taking social media as a medium to shower their praises, some of the celebs tweeted.
Arjun Rampal – “Just saw Agneepath superbly entertaining, Hrithik is fab as usual, Sanju is bloody scary, Rishi Kapoor is unreal, priyanka fab, director is a star.”
Tarun Manshukhani – “Agneepath simply put is the finest film to come from Dharma! Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Rishi Kapoor sir and Sanju Sir are all outstanding!! Karan Malhotra is one of the finest directors ever. Such a learning experience watching his film!!”
Dino Morea – “Just saw Agneepath, brilliant. Full on entertainer. Performances awesome. WoW. Fab job karan malhotra, for a 1st time director, top class.”
Farah Ali Khan – “An unbiased opinion. Agneepath moves you like u cannot even imagine. A total “MUST” watch. I have no words to describe Agneepath. Congratulations Karan, Hrithik, Sanjay Dutt, Priyanka Chopra, Rishi Kapoor and Karan Malhotra. Kudos. Moved beyond words. Cannot even begin to describe the feeling u leave the movie with. Agneepath Agneepath Agneepath. @iHrithik – If there is an actor who isn’t an actor on screen, it is only you & you. God bless u with everything because you deserve that and more. Feel blessed to have you as family. Love u. Lastly but not in the least Katrina in the Chikni Chameli song is faaab. My new year resolution is to get her abs.”
Bhavana Pandey – “Agneepath is a superb film with unreal performances by all the actors.. A must watch..”
Manisha D Ratnani – “Mindblowing Performances! More Power 2 Dharma, Karan Malhotra, Aporva, Hrithik, Karan, Priyanka, Sanjay Dutt, Rishi Kapoor. Agneepath Agneepath!”
Well, we wonder what the original Vijay Dinanath Chauhan aka Amitabh Bachchan has to say about the film.

Shahrukh Khan praises Katrina Kaif

Shahrukh Khan is one actor who is very active on screen as well as on field. The actor will soon be seen opposite Katrina Kaif in a yet to be titled film. In a recent interview, Shahrukh talks about his co-star Katrina Kaif. He also talks about his high expectations from his team Kolkata Knight Riders in the upcoming season of Indian Premier League!
Shahrukh Khan says that Katrina puts in all efforts in everything she does. She is a very hard working girl who gets into the skin of her character. He goes on to say that he shares a very professional relationship with the actress and that they are not the best of friends.
Talking about the new season of the IPL matches, SRK says he is super excited and thrilled about it. Shahrukh will not be present for the upcoming auctions. However, the actor said that no matter what, he is always available for his team and family.
SRK also hopes and prays that Kolkata Knight Riders performs well, this time.

On the sets of Aamir Khan’s reality show...

On Monday evening, a fire broke out on the sets of Aamir Khan’s upcoming TV show Vrundavan Studio, Madh Island.
Explaining the cause of the fire, an unit member said, “Someone from the technical department was doing a routine round of check in the night. While checking the lighting section there was a spark and then the fire spread onto the entire floor. In fact, the very same day, a team of around 20 members from Aamir’s office had visited the set during the day to take some creative calls.”
Reports have it that though no one was hurt, the entire set, designed for the show, burnt down to ashes.
Aamir Khan, the punctilious planner that he is, had reportedly put in place a team to avert such a mishap. It is heard that a team of four were specially trained to tackle such emergencies.
The unit member informed, “It was good that they were there considering the fire brigade took some time to reach. The fire caused a lot of damage to the estimated Rs 1 crore set.”
Confirming the news, Aamir said, “I am just very relieved that there were no injuries or casualties. Thank God.”
