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.

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.”

Abhi touched by Genelia!!

7 12 2009

Genelia’s shooting in Chennai for a South Indian film.

However, that didn’t stop Gen from watching the film. On her day off yesterday, she caught the film in a theatre in Chennai.

She absolutely loved the film and also congratulated AB Jr on the film on a social networking site on being part of such a brilliant film.

She also told him how much she liked both him and Vidya Balan. And, of course Auro. When Abhishek heard that she went to the theatre he was truly touched.

He told her had he known earlier how keen she was to see his film, he’d have organised a special screening for her and her family in Chennai.

My Word: So sweet 🙂





Ash: Pregnant! Who me???

2 12 2009

“I think it was triggered off by that ad with Abhishek and me,” she said. The ad has the couple saying, “Ek khush khabri hai…” Ash added, “That’s where the talk must have started. But there’s no truth to it.”

So, that puts paid to the buzz about her walking out on Abhinay Deo’s Crooked, in which she teams up again with Abhishek, and also stories of her aim being to complete Vipul Shah’s Action Replayy, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Guzaarish, Mani’s Raavan and Rajnikant’s The Robot as early as possible.

Said a friend, “Ash does not get time for herself. She is trying to balance various projects, some of which have overshot the deadline, while playing her domestic roles properly. It’s a very tough balancing act, she needs a break.”

Understandably, the actress is now dropping out of projects that haven’t started. The buzz is she might not play Mumtaz Mahal to Ben Kingsley’s in Taj Mahal, a project that she had said yes to while shooting The Last Legion with Sir Ben.
