I would definitely be happy to work with Abhi:Kareena

8 05 2010

They made their debut together in J P Dutta’s Refugee. And, somewhere deep down, Kareena Kapoor has always wanted to make another film with Abhishek Bachchan.

Personal circumstances willed it otherwise. In the last decade, many things have changed. From a newbie, Bebo has become the No 1 heroine in the trade. She is in a position today to call the shots. And yet somewhere within her, is has an unfulfilled desire.
Says a source close to the actress, “Bebo has won several awards for Best Actress. She has to her credit a couple of Bollywood’s biggest hits Jab We Met and 3 Idiots. But, just like she craves to do exceptional work, she also has this long standing desire to team up with Abhishek.”

The actress admits that according to her, Abhishek is one of the most talented heroes in showbiz. “If a producer was to cast Abhishek and me together, I would definitely be happy,” she says. And though she will not discuss this subject at length, there are people in the trade who feel Kareena and Abhishek will make a winning screen pair and the film-maker who casts them (if ever) would have managed a coup. An insider says, “On her part, Kareena carries no baggage as far as Abhishek is concerned. Should there ever be a proposal to cast them together, she’ll be only too happy to sign the film.”

No kisses for Katrina ..Not even a Dostana?

30 03 2010

That’s the dilemma Karan Johar, Tarun Mansukhani and Manish Malhotra are facing as they plan Katrina Kaif’s look for Dostana 2.

Whatever the producer, director and stylist respectively come up with, they realise has been done before with Priyanka Chopra in Dostana… right from beachwear to sarees. Dostana 2 moves completely away from Miami and shifts to London. That’s another issue. London has been done to death by Bollywood. Practically every second film from Vivek Agnihotri’s Goal to Abbas Tyrewala’s 1-800-Love has been shot there. There is not a spot in London that Indian moviegoers aren’t familiar with.

The third issue facing Dostana 2 is Katrina’s no-exposure, no-kissing clause. Since the film won’t go anywhere near beaches, the actress needn’t fear exposure. As for kissing, the kiss is again between Abhishek and John!


Katrina will definitely be in Dostana 2:Tarun

2 03 2010

Being in demand and in competition for the No. 1 slot in Bollywood, comes with its own headaches and, well, a fair share of heartaches. Katrina Kaif’s stock is at an all-time high.

After nine hits, she’s come to be considered a lucky mascot and now all the big  filmmakers want to sign her on in 2010. But… this demand is causing Kat more stress than delight, say trade sources.

Tarun Mansukhani wants her for Dostana-2 with Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham, Imtiaz Ali was considering her for Rockstar opposite Ranbir Kapoor, Ritesh Sidhwani has approached her for Zoya Akhtar’s film opposite Hrithik Roshan and, Kat has already been signed for Farah Khan’s Tees Maar Khan opposite Akshay Kumar.

These filmmakers want to start shooting in April-May-June. Naturally, the actress can’t spread herself thin despite her wanting to be in each of these projects. And right now, Kat must be joining her hands in prayer and hoping that some divine intervention will sort out her dates diary.

Tarun says, “Kat will definitely be in Dostana-2, come what may.” While Ritesh says, “We’re working towards getting Kat in our film for sure.” But Imtiaz is reportedly looking at a new Kashmiri girl opposite Ranbir.

Unwell Ash visits grandma-in-law.

17 02 2010

For Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai, her relationships seem to score over everything – so much so that even though she was unwell, she travelled to Bhopal to celebrate the 80th birthday of her husband Abhishek Bachchan’s maternal grandmother.

According to a source close to Aishwarya, this was a commitment the couple had made to Abhishek’s ‘nani’ (maternal grandmother) a while ago. And despite the high fever and sore throat that she has been suffering from since a few days, Aishwarya made sure she was there to fulfil her promise.

“Aishwarya is much much better, but still not 100 percent (fine). But she’s my nani’s favourite so she made the trip too. Should be back to fighting fit… in a day or two,” Abhishek posted on social networking site Twitter.

The actor says his grandmother’s expression on seeing both of them was “priceless”.

“Made a surprise trip to Bhopal last night (Monday). Was my nani’s 80th birthday! Her expression was priceless. All her grandchildren flew in from all over. My sister, our cousins all meeting after so long. Now everyone partaking in an old Indian habit, all sitting together… Eating, drinking and catching up!

“My nani, of course, is back to being the matriarch! Making sure all her  children are well fed and taken care of and doing what grandmoms do… feeding,” he added

Abhishek & Deepika in Ashutosh’s next!

7 02 2010

The actresses felt that the role wasn’t anything spectacular. However, Deepika Padukone jumped at the offer. And, she even adds that the experience of working with the Jodhaa Akbar  filmmaker on his next is a very exhilarating one.

Ashutosh, of course, is not deterred by small hiccups that have come in the way of one of his most ambitious projects.

His Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey is being shot on a very lavish scale on the virgin locales of Sawantwadi, two hours from Goa at a century-old spectacular palace. Art Director Nitin Desai has changed the existing edifice beyond recognition, and it actually seems like a heritage structure from the 1930s.

The film, based on Manini Chatterjee’s Do and Die: The Chittagong Uprising, is an engrossing account of the years between 1930-34, when a revolutionary group headed by Surya Sen ( Abhishek Bachchan) and 64 others led an armed uprising for Indian Independence.“It was around the time when Mahatma Gandhi asked everyone to steer clear of violence and yet, there was this one group who planned their coup to rattle the British. They were willing to give their lives for a cause, for their country,’’ says Ashu. The filmmaker is so inspired by the book that he has poured his every sensibility into turning the script to a quick-paced narrative, which touches on a chapter in history that needs to be told. “And it is a very contemporary take, something today’s evolved audience can relate to,” he says.

Ideally, Ashu’s film should have been shot in Bangladesh, but knowing how difficult that may be for a mammoth unit like his, the filmmaker did a recce, and found that the flora and fauna of Sawant-wadi could match what he had in mind for KHJJS.

As for the casting, Ashutosh feels every film has its own destiny. “Hrithik Roshan was meant to do Swades.  Shahrukh Khan did it… and Swades is still one of the most-talked about films in SRK’s career. Abhishek and Deepika are best suited for this project. What more could I ask for? Ultimately things work out for the best.”
