Shahrukh Khan wants to steer clear of controversies and this was quite evident when he met director Roshan Abbas and music director Pritam Chakraborty for his next production ‘Always Kabhi Kabhi’. Actually reports suggest that this ‘Baadshah’ Khan had a problem with a phrase ‘Undie the condie’ which is used in one of the songs of the film. Shahrukh told Abbas about his displeasure with the lyrics of such kind. For him, the song sounded bit sleazy and he detested it this way.
Abbas when learnt about it, he tried to convince Khan abou the lyrics and said that it was just an abbreviation for youth conversation ‘understand the condition’. But he needed to be further convinced and so Abbas presented some research papers also for the same.
“Shahrukh was of the opinion that we should not use words like ‘undie’ that sounded like ‘kundi’ that translates to bum in south. I told him that it is actually a phrase which is used by people in north India. They use the phrase ‘undie the condi of the situ’ which means ‘understand the condition of the situation’. I also pointed out that this was, in fact, a popular phrase in schools in the North India,” says Abbas.
So did the Khan star accepted the phrase and used in his song? No ji actually Abbas failed to convince Shahrukh and now this phrase is not been used in the song.
Abbas further added, “Since the film is about youngsters and targets that age group, we have used that phrase.”
But his explanations failed to convince Shahrukh Khan finally and now lyrics would be re-written.
She might be gorgeous, she might be classy, she may be everything but she knows that in B town nothing but acting skills work for long term success. She has essayed glamorous roles in her films like “Love Aaj Kal”, “Housefull” and “Break Ke Baad”. But the diva is clear about a misconception of the industry. For her even glamorous roles require acting skills.
Recently she interacted with media and said, “It’s a misconception that glamorous roles don’t involve the actor to act. This is not true because in the West you have Julia Roberts doing really glamorous roles and you still notice her performance and notice how great she looks.”
The 25-year-old actress will next be seen in Prakash Jha’s film “Aarakshan”, which is based on caste-based reservations. In addition to this she is also in news for her teaming up with her co-star of ‘Love Aaj Kal’, Saif Ali Khan. Yes, this filmi Jodi with a great sense of comic timing is going to be soon re-launched in another film. ‘Chote Nawab’ (read Saif Ali Khan) had proved long back that only with one liners and his cheeky smile, he could perfectly compliment any female lead opposite him.
Deepika Padukone is reportedly doing some steamy scenes in her next rom-com with Saif which will display the couple’s chemistry on screen. In Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Love Aaj Kal’ they shared a hot lip lock, this time the audience is definitely expecting something more sizzling.
This next movie of Deepika is of Homi Adajania’s (Being Cyrus fame) and the script is to be written by Imtiaz Ali. It is to be produced by Dinesh Vijan, Saif’s ex- business partner and it is to be shot in exotic locales of London, Spain and Delhi.
Sources from the film say, “They both are to have great roles with shades of some very amazing characters in them.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali might not be a media savvy person, but one thing he knows pretty well is how to trick media to avoid any kind of controversies. Recently he displayed this skill and avoided to get into any controversy. Everybody is aware of the tiff between Sanjay and Salman post ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ and later, so when he was confronted with a Salman question recently, he didn’t go into that matter.
An eye witness, at the press conference reports, "Sanjay Leela Bhansali seems to be adept at handling tough scribes. Something similar happened at the press meet of his new TV show X-FACTOR. During the press meet, when Bhansali was asked about his equation with Salman Khan post their last controversy, the filmmaker refused to touch that topic. Going by his reaction, it seems Bhansali has declared Salman a taboo topic henceforth."
It is not only ‘Dil De Chuke Sanam’ that was bone of contention between the two. After the release of Bhansali’s film ‘Guzaarish’, the spat grew by leaps and bounds when Salman made a derogatory remark about the film that not even single dog has come to see the movie. Sanjay was too upset by this remark of ‘Dabangg’ Salman. The comment left Sanjay embittered and the two decided to never to patch up in near future. But now when Sanjay is asked to say something about ‘Veer’, he avoids the topic and doesn’t make any comment; seems like Salman has become a taboo topic for Sanjay.
Sanjay’s new reality show, X Factor, has gone on air on 29th May.
Men will be men and this Imran Khan has proved once again. While most men like size zero women, Imran detests the idea of drooling over skinny women. Among the group of young stars, Imran is the one who loves curvaceous gals. This Khan who is enjoying immense popularity for the ‘Delhi Belly’ euphoria has opened up for the first time though about the women whom he admires.
"Most of the women don't know how to flatter their bodies. Choosing the right fit is a must when wearing jeans. I am not a great admirer of size-zero figures. I like curves on a woman as it really flatters her body,” says this Delhi Belly sensation.
Imran, who has recently started his own clothing chain line, is trying hard these days to spread across the message and his notion about fashion as he takes. So what’s Imran take on fashion and being fashionable? Telling about his idea of fashion he illustrates, "This new line has my personal touch. It's me in every way, is casual and comfortable. I feel that fashion should speak about your personality."
Imran is now entering into a side business of fashion, may be that is why he has given his idea of a beautiful women. Otherwise earlier he was known for his restricted media interaction and He hasn’t been linked up in the industry due to his nature. Guess, is this Avantika’s magic that has changed Imran? Well, whatever it is, we like Imran in a candid way…what say guys?
Amitabh Bachchan or fondly called Big B is known for his versatility in Bollywood. This time the mega superstar of the millennium has set a new record for himself by singing title track of his forthcoming film BBUDDAH HOGA TERA BAAP in 'Acapella' style - a first ever in India!
For those who are unaware of Acapella music, we would like to tell that Apacella music is a solo or a group singing sans any instruments. Interestingly enough reports suggests that music directors Vishal and Shekhar were thinking of something unique for the superstar and they zeroed on the idea of using an acapella style of music for him to create a magical memorable number for the Bbuddah. Much to their surprise Mr. Bachchan agreed to their idea happily when the duo approached him for the same.
Confirming the news, Shekahr of the Vishal – Shekhar duo elaborates, "We wanted to try something new with this song. We did the basic setup and then Mr. Bachchan replaced every track with his voice. He recreated the sounds of approximately 10 to 12 instruments, from drum to bass to the snare to the chorus. In a nut shell, he did everything required to make a song!"
A close source from the film also reveals, "Given Mr. Bachchan's multi-talented persona, it is no surprise that he took this challenge up very sportingly and was very excited about doing something new. He gave his best and the result is for everyone to see. Every sound you hear in the title track is created by Mr. Bachchan himself! This is the first time that the 'Acapella' style of singing has been used in Indian cinema and we owe it to Mr. Bachchan for introducing us to something so unique!"
Your fans are eagerly waiting to hear you singing soon sir…

Story: ‘Kuch Love Jaisa’ is a movie about a bored housewife, Shefali who plays Madhu Saxena. She is married to Sumeet and is leading a typical housewife’s life.

Madhu proposes to Raghav to let her accompany him on his secret mission to which he agrees after much speculation. The rest of the movie is woven around the incidents that they both encounter and present a roller coaster ride of fun and thrill to the audience.
Movie Review: Vipul and Barnali have succeeded in presenting simple lined story in a fabulous way. Initially the housewife Shefali is typically a lone housewife who is bored of the mundane routine and the second half presents her in a new makeover avatar. Rahul has done a brilliant job. His acting skills are unquestionable. Sumeet and Neetu have lived up to their roles. It is a good movie that can provide some respite from the traditional ghar sansaar types of movies.
Story Treatment: Barnali has done an excellent job. The story is fresh and is well prersneted and narrated. The sequences also are linked and well connected. Overall effect of a comedy movie is thus reflected with surely a message to the viewers.
Why to see: Shefali’s makeover and a mind blowing performance eof Rahul Bose (as usual) makes it worth watching.
