Veteran film-maker K C Bokadia, whose ''Bold'' releases later this month, said making films with newcomers is the most challenging job.
''Bold'' stars newcomers Tanvi Verma, Dev Gill and Samir Kochar and will hit the silver screen on September 23.
Talking to press, Mr Bokadia, who has made films like ''Teri Meherbaniya'', ''Pyar Jhukta Nahin'', and ''Aaj Ka Arjun'', agreed the title ''Bold'' was misleading about its content.
Bollywood's hot diva Sophie Chaudhary has just donned a new role, that of a director. No, the sultry actress has not turned a film director. In fact she has been appointed as a Director of 'Friendly Food Factory' known for their chain of hotels. Friendly Food Factory just launched 'Open Affair' their first restaurant in Mumbai recently. Besides Sophie, video directors Colossus and Ashok Chawla are a part of this venture too. And to mark her foray in the food industry, Sophie will soon throw a big bash for it. Despite of busy schedules Sophie thinks she can balance her activities well between being a director of a company and an actress. 'It's all about time management and I just know how to go about it,' she smiles.
Kristanna Loken insists she’s still bisexual
The actress wed actor Noah Danby, 34, but says that doesn't mean her feelings towards the female sex have changed, NOW reports.
‘I’m married to a man now,’ she says. ‘I think I was ready to be in a committed relationship and it could have been with a man or a woman.
'It just so happened to be a man, but it doesn’t make me not attracted to women.’
Bollywood actor Preity Zinta will be conferred with the Smita Patil Memorial Award 2008 for her "outstanding" contribution to the Hindi film industry.
"Priety's name has been announced for the award," said sources close to the actor. "The award will be presented sometime in September," the sources added.
The biennial award is given by an NGO Priyadarshini Academy engaged in socio-cultural and educational activities.
Priyadarshini Academy has been holding the biennial award function since its inception in 1984.
In the past, distinguished celebrities like Yash chopra, Karishma Kapoor, Urmila Matondkar, Aishwarya Rai, Madhuri Dixit have been bestowed with this ward. Kareena Kapoor was the recipient of the award in 2006.
HEROES cheerleader actress Hayden Panettiere has no super powers here.
Instead she has to fall back on her acting skills in a quirky rom-com about American Asian culture alienation.
Struggling actor Liam (Ken Leung) hops from one bed to the next, forging his most meaningful relationship with 16-year-old neighbour Adelaide (Hayden).
When his grandmother dies, he inherits her home in Shanghai and travels to China where he becomes infatuated with the sophisticated Micki (Kelly Hu), which leads him on a journey of self-discovery.
Once upon a time Nisha Kothari was more famous as Ram Gopal Varma's discovery, but now she's making inroads in Telugu Cinema. Her first Telugu flick to hit the screens was the Balakrishna starrer Okka Magadu, since then she's appeared in a string of spiced up glamour roles.
Now her new movie Hari Om starring new-comer Sekhar, along with Madhu Sharma, is in brisk progress. She has also replaced the actress Malavika in Samrajyam, being filmed in Tamil as Karthigai, due to Malavika's pregnancy.
Known as Amoha in Tamil Cinema, this spicy hot bombshell is called Nisha across the border in Telugu Cinema. Actually, she's was born Priyanka Kothari and says that she wants to be known by her original name.
But then it's a bit late for that now Amoha/Nisha. But 'A rose is a rose by any other name.'
NEW YORK — When Katherine Heigl opens her mouth, people listen. They don't always like what they hear.
If the media loves a celebrity lightning rod, then Heigl certainly delivers the goods. The Emmy-winning actress has taken heat for her blunt public comments and doesn't seem to give two winks.
According to her detractors, the Grey's Anatomy star's outre behavior includes: demanding a higher salary in contract negotiations with ABC; slamming the megahit comedy Knocked Up, in which she starred with Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd, as ”a little sexist“ in painting women as ”humorless and uptight“ and men as ”lovable, goofy“; and recently, refusing to seek an Emmy nomination because Grey's writers failed to deliver the goods for an awards-worthy performance.
At times, Heigl comes off like a reality-show contestant who says, ”I'm not here to make friends. I'm here to win.“ That attitude, as any avid viewer of shows from Survivor to The Bachelor would agree, wins few allies on the island (or in the mansion), but it sure makes for good TV.
But in a world of bland, media-trained celebs, is it such a bad thing to speak your mind?
After all, celebrities have spouted off for years, bashing presidents, fellow actors and directors. But Hollywood is like high school — only meaner — and hammering the popular kids might have consequences that take years to undo.
You must have witnessed the glitzy music launch of Singh is Kinng, hopefully though. The star studded evening was shaded with soothing yellow and undoubtedly enough; the presence of Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif made it little more blazing.
There were stars all around and among them standing was the lack luster Julie girl Neha Dhupia, somehow lost in rows of flops and the same way lost was the back of her outfit to insist on her sleeky bare-back beauty. Though the evening passed with thought like 'touch her, touch her not', the impact of the short backless stayed longer. And that lingering thought provoked even further imaginations.
Has the beau lost her faith on her face after flops and lacking in offers for films she has grown a conceptually misconception about relying on her back! Is it that Neha wants to try out the short-cut to fame? As some of the actresses do. If she is really thinking this way then we could remind Neha, "The shorter; the Better" surely goes the way; but not for everyone and it's surely the time to close the backdoor. We hope she understood our point!
The news is that English rose Kate Winslet is already being wooed by the world's top fashion designers, so strong is the buzz about her finally winning an Oscar at next year's ceremony. It's no major surprise -- if there's any justice in Hollywood, she will surely get a gold statuette.
The 33-year-old Titanic star has already received five Oscar nominations. And having walked away empty-handed the same number of times, there is a feeling that the next Oscar ceremony will definitely belong to Kate. She is expected to be nominated for both The Reader and Revolutionary Road, both of which are out in December.
Radiant Kate wore a pale green, one-shouldered Valentino gown, set off by Chopard yellow diamonds and an 18-karat gold Bulgari clutch bag when she last walked the red carpet at the Oscar ceremony. Sadly, she lost out in 2007 to Helen Mirren for her role in The Queen.
Yet earning her fifth Oscar nomination, for Little Children, at the age of 31, meant that Kate became the youngest actress ever to garner five nominations.
We're guessing Victoria Beckham had a good time at the posh party Allure magazine held in her honor at the Beverly Thompson Hotel last night. We can't say for sure because she never smiles. But her A-list pals obviously had a blast. Here are some photos:
After proving herself as an actor and an anchor on the small screen, Mandira Bedi is now all set to shake a leg for Star Plus's special Independence Day show.
"This will be the first time I will be dancing on the small screen and I'm pretty excited about it," Mandira said on the sidelines of an event organised by Timex watches.
"I'm not a good dancer but I'm giving it a shot. I'm hopeful that my fans will like my dancing act," she added.
Not many people know that Mandira has done an item number for Tamil movie Manmadhan in 2004. Her dancing skills were also seen in the 1995 blockbuster Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge in the song Mehndi laga ke rakhna where she matched steps with Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol.
So now what about doing an item number for Bollywood?
Mandira says she is open to the idea but is waiting for the right offer. "A peppy song and a good banner will make a perfect combination," Mandira said.
The actress, who was last seen on the big screen in Sanjay Gupta's Dus Kahaniyaan, is now all geared up for Pritish Nandy's Meerabai Not Out—a cricket-centric film in which India's test captain Anil Kumble plays a cameo.
The cricket crazy actress essays the lead role in the film. Her association with cricket started when she hosted Extraa Innings during the World Cup tournament in 2003 and 2007 and became known more for her noodle-strapped blouses.
Talking about her role, Mandira said: "In this movie, I eat, drink and sleep cricket. It is all about cricket fans and their love for sport heroes. And this is the first time [Anil] Kumble will appear on screen. It will be a treat to see him acting on the silver screen."
The actress, who made an everlasting impression with her with long-running soap Shanti on Doordarshan, is not interested in doing any more serials.
"Shanti was a dream debut for me. It was a long series but not a stretched soap drama that we have nowadays. It is so boring for me to be a part of these never ending dramas," said Mandira, who featured in a negative role in Ekta Kapoor's Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thhi.
Achint Kaur is now essaying the character.
Mandira is mostly anchoring reality shows now. Recently she finished hosting music show Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar and has now replaced Bhojpuri actor Ravi Kishen as the anchor of Zee TV's reality show Ek Se Badkar Ek.
Making Mallika Sherawat look hot is easy. But it was up to Sapna Bhavnani to give this actress many avatars in her new film, Ugly Aur Pagly, and make all of them sizzle.
The self-taught hairstylist and owner of Mad-o-Wot salon in Mumbai is no stranger to celebrities -- her clients range from movie stars like Bipasha Basu, Ashiwarya Rai Bachchan, John Abraham to cricketers like Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh. Sapna has also done bit roles in Pyaar Ke Side Effects as well as Ugly Aur Pagly.
Read on as she dishes the dirt on Mallika, and more, to Patcy N.
What was the experience in Ugly Aur Pagly like?
[Producer] Rongita Nandy wanted me to style Mallika's hair for Ugly Aur Pagly. She gave me a free hand. All she wanted was that Mallika should look young and hot, like a college girl.
