Barbara wants to work with SRK!

25 05 2010
After romancing Bollywood heartthrob Hrithik Roshan onscreen, Mexican beauty Barbara Mori is now eying to work with superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

The 32-year-old actress has been praised for her sizzling chemistry with Hrithik in Anurag Basu directed ‘Kites’.

But before she can foray into Bollywood, the model-turned actress needs to brush up her linguistic skills and learn Hindi.

Barbara, who was here with Hrithik and producer Rakesh Roshan for the promotion of their film, sought help from the father-son duo to translate questions thrown at her by the audience.

When asked if she has signed any new projects the actress replied in negative but added, “I want to work with Shah Rukh Khan.”

Barbara and Hrithik were all praise for each other forming a mutual admiration society. The 36-year-old actor said that he has learnt alot from his Mexican co-star.

The onscreen couple seemed unfazed toward the lukewarm response of the critic and audience to their film.

While the actress, who has has worked in Mexican TV soaps and films like ‘Inspiracion’ and ‘La Mujer De Mi Hermano’, said ‘Kites’ was the best movie of her career.
Hrithik said that the 140-crore film is his labour of love straight from the heart which has garnered good reviews outside India.

“To each his own. I don’t really trust them (critics). When I debuted in Bollywood they referred me as god and then after two years they said I am finished. So I would rather follow my heart and do what I like than try to please the critics,” Hrithik said.

The film’s international version ‘Kites – The Remix’ has been edited by Hollywood director Brett Ratner of ‘Rush Hour’ and ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ fame, which will hit the theaters on May 28.

Jab Imtiaz met Hrithik Roshan!

16 05 2010

Every producer aims for a cast and director that will deliver a blockbuster.

While there are no guarantees in this industry, producer Sajid Nadiadwala has managed to get two very bankable talents together. He has signed Imtiaz Ali and Hrithik Roshan for his next film, a combination that many producers have been trying to broker for the last couple of years. The film is scheduled to go on the floors early next year.

Our source said, “Sajid Nadiadwala is the biggest producer in Bollywood today. After Housefull, he will be making the Hindi remake of South superhit Kick starring Salman Khan. His mega venture with Hrithik and Imtiaz follows Kick. Incidentally, Sajid had signed Imtiaz immediately after Jab We Met and they have been planning the film for four years. Now, Hrithik has given the go ahead and the film will be the most expensive Bollywood production. The budget will be over Rs 100 crore as it’s a genre that has never been attempted before. It is a drama-based film and has its emotional moments. It will start as soon as Imtiaz is done with his film Rockstar with Ranbir and in all likelihood, the film will go on the floors in January-February next year.”

Even the parties involved are very optimistic about the outcome. The source added, “Imtiaz wanted to work with Hrithik immediately after Jab We Met. However, he went on to make Love Aaj Kal and now finally he is making the film with him.”

When contacted, Hrithik Roshan confirmed the news.

On the other hand, Sajid Nadiadwala said, “It is true that I am making the film with Imtiaz Ali but I can’t comment on the casting as of now.”

I’m taking SRK, Hrithik’s legacy forward: Ranbir

19 03 2010

Actor Ranbir Kapoor, who has replaced superstar Shah Rukh Khan as the brand ambassador of Pepsi and actor Hrithik Roshan in ITC’s John Players, feels obliged to get the opportunity to take forward their legacy.

“As far as replacement is concerned, Shah Rukh Khan is a legend and his contribution to Pepsi was immense. I am taking forward his legacy. As far as John Players is concerned, Hrithik Roshan is a style icon for whom I have immense respect. I believe that I am fortunate enough to get a chance to take his legacy forward,” Ranbir told reporters after the logo launch of John Players at ITC Hotel here today.

Ranbir maintains that comfort should be the primary criteria while choosing clothes. “It’s not about wearing expensive or brands. It’s something that makes you feel comfortable. There are no strict rules. It’s about what you want to wear and how you carry it,” said Ranbir. Ranbir admits that he is not brand conscious at all. “I am not brand conscious at all. I don’t understand fashion. God has been very kind to me that I could sign up with this brand and I hope my knowledge on fashion increases,” said Ranbir.

As most actors do, Ranbir would try to endorse this brand in his  films as well. “I hope so. I will try so that the producers take the help of John Players. The costume designers take clothes from John Players. All I can do is try,” said Ranbir.

Katrina and Hrithik sizzle on Harper Bazaar!

Kareena:Marriage,Shahid,Hrithik,Priyanka..and more!

23 02 2010

Ever so often, there are rumours of you and Saif having had a secret nikaah at Pataudi. Your comment?
We have been together for two-and-half years now. We are very happy. Marriage will happen, but it hasn’t happened. At some point, we are going to settle down but we don’t know when. And catch me doing anything secretly! Anything about my life has been so much in the open. Why would I break my record and go have a hush-hush wedding? I am the last unmarried Kapoor girl in the family and I want a grand wedding… I want to be a beautiful bride but right now, I am too busy being a bride on the big screen.

Saif once told me that he is ready to get married but that it wouldn’t be fair to you because like it or not, an actress’ stock gets affected.
That’s why I love him so much more.

So where does that leave a Bachchan, a Kapoor and a Roshan?
I would love to work with Hrithik. I think he is one of the finest actors in the country but surprisingly, no one is offering us films together, can you believe that. I am sure we will work together at some point.

Do you ever see Shahid and you coming together?
I am professional, and I am sure Shahid is as well. And I don’t see why we shouldn’t work together, if there is a good script, and if we both have good roles.

What’s happening to Milenge Milenge, an old commitment?
It’s like a seven-year-old film. I just want it to release for Satishji (Kaushik) and Boneyji’s (Kapoor) sake, so they can get out of the stress. (shrugs) But it is an old film.

If asked to name an actress you consider your closest rival, you’d pick…
The truth is, I think everyone is running a race. I am not. I know where I am. I am competing with myself. And if that wasn’t the case, I don’t think I would have films like 3 Idiots, Kurbaan, Omkara, Chameli, or Jab We Met. Also, the problem is, my closest rival keeps changing. Every year, a new name is touted. I don’t want to name anyone, but I think in the last few years, I have been compared to five different names.

So let me name them… Bipasha, Katrina, Priyanka, Deepika, and Sonam…
(Laughs) I am not naming anyone… let me just say that all these comparisons have never bothered me.

I take advice from SRK:Farhan

23 02 2010


There are all these rumours linking you to your Karthik calling Karthik co-star Deepika Padukone which the two of you protest at every opportunity. Are you not overdoing it?
Honestly speaking, I can only speak for myself. Initially I didn’t protest, I thought it would blow over naturally. But then it began to get awkward and in very bad taste and that is when I started protesting. Then one thing led to another and now again I am tired of protesting. I also feel that now that we are pretty much coming to the end of the promotion of Karthik Calling Karthik and you will see us spending a lot of time with other people as opposed to each other, it will blow over.

Do such rumours affect you a lot?
It’s important for me because it affects my family. It’s weird for me to answer to my nine-year-old daughter who sees something on TV or reads a headline in a newspaper. Children tend to stress about these things a lot more than we understand. When I wasn’t addressing the issue she couldn’t understand why I was denying something to her but not telling the rest of the world. So to me it was important to come out and talk about it.

My daughter couldn’t understand why I was denying something to her but not telling the rest of the world

You work with actors as a director and compete with them as an actor. How do you differentiate between the two?
The people that I have worked with are the ones that I am good friends with and I do spend a lot of time with. One is obviously Hrithik and the other is Shah Rukh. Hrithik and I have known each other for really really long. We have been friends from way before I decided I wanted to be in films (he kind of always knew he wanted to be in films). So my friendship with him is beyond actor-director, whatever.

With Shah Rukh, I really started hanging out with him post Dil Chahta Hai. I feel a certain kinship with him. We have similar joys in terms of technology, we jam on many things. And many a times he has been someone I have turned to for advice. He is someone I have almost started feeling over time, again without sounding cheesy, like an elder brother. I know for a fact, not that he has told me so, that he is someone I can really count on, if the need arises. Even if we choose in the future to not work together, we will still hang out, we will still be friends.

For me, Don’s character hinges on his cunning and smartness and the fact that he is playing all the characters in the film and at the same time, he also plays the audience
