If you are wondering why King Khan has never appeared in Yash Raj’s superhit ‘Dhoom’ franchise, here’s the buzz. It seems, Yash is saving the super villain (remember ‘Darr’?) for the last. With every episode of ‘Dhoom’, the producers have given the negative role to a bigger star. So, if ‘Dhoom 1’ had John Abraham, ‘Dhoom 2’ had Hrithik Roshan. They followed this up with Aamir Khan, who features in ‘Dhoom 3’ as a villain.
So would ‘Dhoom 4’ go to Shahrukh Khan? Apparently not, for he is the King and only the last of the ‘Dhoom’ series would befit his calibre as a villain. ‘Dhoom 5’ seems a more likely choice to feature him. But, would Shahrukh agree to be a part of the ‘Dhoom’ franchise? The little bird tells us, he will jump at the chance, not because he wants the film desperately, but because he wants to prove, he’s the best! Shahrukh has outshone others in negative roles and the public would certainly wait with bated breath to find him in his element as a super villain in the ‘Dhoom’ series. Is Salman Khan listening?
It seems King Khan and Katrina Kaif will be together soon on the big screen, not in one movie but two! Yash Chopra is casting the duo in a love story being produced under the Yash Raj Films banner. Katrina was Chopra’s first choice and she jumped at the chance, when offered the role. It is not the first time that Shahrukh and Katrina will be working together under the Yash Raj banner, they have done so before.
But, this is not the whole news. Another film, which is being made by Vijay Singh, the Paris-based Indian filmmaker, may also feature the two. Vijay is toying with the idea of making a period movie on the 18th century historical love story between an Awadh king and a British girl. And who better to play these roles, than the Badshah of Bollywood and the oh-so-propah British girl, Katrina Kaif? Vijay has already got Shahrukh interested in the project, but is yet to talk to Katrina for the role. According to Vijay, Shahrukh is ideal for playing the role of the Awadh king and Katrina would fit the role of the British girl to a ‘T’.
Actor Tusshar Kapoor is normally known for his humbleness but he started to fight in public with the director of his movie "Hum, Tum aur Shabana". The location was a mall in Mumbai and after the incident, everyone was shocked to know this part of his nature on the day.
In a mall located in Bhandup area of Mumbai, shooting was going on for the film when suddenly, people heard him shouting at the director Sagar Ballari. On this, Ballari started shouting back at him. This incident made the other actors, Minissha Lamba and Shreyas Talpade, very embarrassed.
When the two were asked about it, they admitted that there had indeed been differences between them. Tusshar said "It was bad. We were shooting for the film on Sunday when Sagar asked me to shoot one extra night. I was working sleeplessly for many days and that's why, I lost my temper. Now, I feel that he was only doing his work and wanted the best shot. I have asked for forgiveness and we are friends again."
On the other hand, when Ballari was contacted, he said "People know Tusshar as a non-violent, soft hearted person and didn't knew of his other side. I am happy that he kept his point well."
"We were shooting non stop for five days and were much sleepy and slow. Tusshar just couldn't take it any more." he said.
These things happen in the making of a film. It's normal.
A shot was to be taken of hers at a beach of Thailand which was stopped for a time because of Kangana Ranaut's refusal. After this, she came to Mumbai for the promotion of Tanu Weds Manu. Later, she apparently went back to the director, David and said that she is ready to wear bikini but she has got some points. She said that she will wear a two piece only if she is not shown wet in the shot. In this scene, the three actors of the movie, Sanjay Dutt, Ajay Devgn and Arjun Rampal are watching her. According to the original shot, she was to appear out from the water but due to her rule, she will now be shown on the beach directly. According to a close friend of her's, everything is alright between David and Kangana. David has got his bikini shot and Kangana's rules were also fulfilled.
By the way, Kangana recently celebrated her twenty fourth birthday with her special friends only which included Hritik Roshan, Sanjay and Manyata Dutt, Arjun Rampal etc.
Buzz is that Katrina and Salman will make a special appearance together in ‘Joker’, the Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha starrer, being directed by Shirish Kunder, Farah Khan’s husband. It is also speculated that the two would also do a special dance number. Well, it is only speculation, as nothing of the sort is happening, as of now.
The grist to the rumour mill was the fact that Katrina will make an appearance in ‘Joker’ for Shirish, since she had done the ‘Sheila’ item number for Farah Khan in her movie ‘Tees Maar Khan’. And since Farah Khan is known to be close to Salman, she will be able to persuade him to be a part of ‘Joker’ too. The public put two-and-two together and believed that both Katrina and Salman would shake a leg together in this film.
The last word in this episode is still not in, but in all probability Katrina may not groove with Salman. But, let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best!
Bollywood generally runs after whatever sells. And what is currently selling, my dearies, are item numbers. When ‘Munni’ was making waves with Malaika Arora, Katrina came from behind and swept the public off its feet with ‘Sheila’. Now the buzz is that Deepika’s sensuous ‘Dum Maro Dum’ number promises to upstage these two.
If these sexy sirens can do item numbers can Bipasha Basu and Mallika Sherawat be far behind? A source tells us that the Bhatts have approached Bipasha, the dusky bombshell, to do a sizzling number for ‘Murder 2’, sequel to their 2004 movie ‘Murder’. The lead actors in ‘Murder 2’ are Emraan Hashmi and Jacqueline Fernandez. Bipasha is there just to sizzle and draw in the viewers. Whether we will be able to see Bipasha setting the stage on fire cannot be predicted at this juncture, since she has not accepted the offer as yet, citing date problems.
Malika Sherawat has been signed by Reliance Entertainment and Maruti International for an item number in ‘Double Dhamaal’, directed by Inder Kumar. She gyrates to the beat of a steamy number called ‘Jalebi Bai’, composed by Anand Raj Anand. The song has been choreographed by Ganesh Acharya, a well known Bollywood dance master. It seems item numbers will keep the public entertained for a long time to come!
