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.

Kareena’s sister act!

19 05 2010

Kareena Kapoor, who has a choc-o-block diary, says she has still made a note of certain dates.

Like June 24 is her elder sister and her jaan Karisma Kapur’s 36th birthday, and Bebo has warned her secretary Zahid Khan well in advance that she has to be with Lolo on that day. “Can you imagine Zahid is just giving me one evening with Lolo,” says Bebo. “I have some crazy schedule where I’ll be at Hyderabad and then air-dashing to London. But I have told him that whatever the situation, I need to be with Karisma on her birthday.” Bebo is also doubly excited because this time they have a new member in the family. “Lolo’s son will also join the celebrations,” she coos

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’d rather be fully Indian: Deepika

16 05 2010

Now the story can be told. You know, don’t you, that the gorgeous Deepika Padukone shimmered down the red carpet at Cannes on Friday wearing a saree by designer Rohit Bal.

There’s a reason why she chose the Indian national costume for her first major international appearance. The actress told BT from the French Riviera, “When I started modelling, I promised myself that whenever I attend an international event, I’d wear a saree and not western clothes. I get enough opportunities at home to wear western clothes. When I’m seen at an international event I’d rather be fully Indian.”

She cleverly declined to comment on the fact that Cannes regular Aishwarya Rai Bachchan appeared on the red carpet in a gown. “I wouldn’t like to comment on others,” said Deepika, adding that she finds the saree very sensuous and “it felt good to be so Indian so far away from home”. However, the goss is that Cannes first-timer Deepika had made discreet inquiries about what Ash would be wearing before deciding her own look. No matter, the two lovely Indian actresses made spectators’ day at the film festival by proving that variety is indeed the spice and curry of life.

Her moment on the red carpet aside, Deepika apparently has not found Cannes exciting enough. She said she hardly met anyone at the film festival except German F1 superstar Michael Schumacher and caught just one film, the French Tournee, which she enjoyed. So, on Day 2, Deepika set off on her own to take in the sights and sounds of the scenic seaside town. “There’s so much to Cannes besides the festival,” she said. “The first time I came here was in 2002. Not for the festival but as a tourist. And I remember standing outside the venue and taking pictures. I had promised myself that next time… I’d be back as part of the film festival… and here I am.”
