My Backless shot, not vulgar: Kareena Kapoor

12 11 2009

“This shot of me in a backless posture and Saif with a wound on his chest tell so much about the film’s theme,” Kareena told IANS. “There is love, passion and violence – all combined in here and what better way than to show it through a single still? You too would agree that there is nothing sleazy or vulgar about it. Knowing the sensibilities of Karan Johar (producer) and Rensil D’Silva (director), that’s the least one could have expected,” she added.

Kareena said that after Geet in “Jab We Met”, her character of Avantika in “Kurbaan” will make people sit up and take notice. “The girl’s role has a lot of edge in ‘Kurbaan’, something which starts becoming more and more visible as the film unfolds. In any case the film is not one of those cliched love stories. Every character has quite a few layers to it and Avantika, the character I play, is no exception. She is quite pivotal to ‘Kurbaan’,” she said.

Kareena plays a professor in “Kurbaan” who gets married to her colleague, played by Saif Ali Khan.

They move to New York after marriage, but as a series of events unfold she finds herself into a vortex of danger and intrigue. She further realises that she is a pawn in a huge game and no one could be trusted. “What made this role special is the fact that I play this young beautiful professor who is quite normal. She reacts to terrorism for the first time and life is never the same again for her,” she said.
“Actually if you ask me, then technically ‘Kurbaan’ is the story of this girl. She is the light of the screen. I am sure people will cry with Avantika…so strong is her characterisation,” the actress said. After “Jab We Met”, Kareena was seen in “Main Aurr Mrs Khanna”, “Kambakkth Ishq”, “Tashan” and “Golmaal Returns”. And except “Golmaal Returns”, none of the films did well at the box office.

Kareena is delighted about the prospects of audiences seeing her in a different light after the film and says it is not a frothy romance drama. “‘Kurbaan’ has a deep-rooted love story to it, but it is not a frothy romantic film that we are time and again exposed to. The love story is much deeper here. There is a definite meaning, purpose and reason to it. Also, the film is quite powerful in its own way since it’s the voice of moderate Islam,” she said. The film, which also stars Vivek Oberoi, Om Puri, Kirron Kher and Dia Mirza, is releasing Nov 20.

Kareena gets Imtiaz to direct her again!!

17 04 2009

Kareena Kapoor was very upset that Imtiaz Ali hadn’t choosen her for his next ‘Love Aaj aur Kal” starring Saif Ali Khan and now Deepika Padukone. Kareena wanted to work with beau Saif ALi Khan. I thought that would be cool to see after all she worked with Shahid Kapoor who was then her boyfriend in ‘Jab We Met’ it would be interesting to see Kareena with Saif in a movie under the same director. It would be Kareena-Shahid verse Kareena-Saif !! But Imtiaz will put her in a ad for some snack, at least Kareena’s happy!! 

Kareena Kapoor has finally got her way… about working with one of her favourite directors Imtiaz Ali. Bebo worked with Ali in Jab We Met but was not chosen for beau Saif’s home production Love Aaj Aur Kal directed by the JWM director. However, Kareena will now be shooting with her favourite director for a snack ad.

Says a source close to Kareena, “She has been dying to work with Imtiaz again as she feels he brings out the best in her and feels he makes her look very beautiful. JWM will always be Special to Kareena and she was upset when Imtiaz chose Deepika Padukone for Saif’s film.

So this time when the snack company asked her to shoot another ad for the brand, the actress insisted that Imtiaz direct her; they agreed.” The ad will be shot in Punjab. Says the source, “The concept is much like the story of Jab We Met. Bebo will be wearing ethnic salwar-suits and running through the sarson ka khets.Imtiaz and she will shoot the ad today and come back tonight.”

An excited Kareena told us, “Yes I did ask for Imtiaz to direct me in the ad. Imtiaz and I are Special together. Jab We Met was magical. It’s a film I will always cherish as one of my best ones. I can’t wait to see Love Aaj Aur Kal on the big screen. The ad I am shooting for is funny, witty and cool something that is Imtiaz’s forte. He’s one of the best directors in the country today.”

Exclusive: Kaminey Trailer First Look!! Shahid and Priyanka

24 02 2009

Even though I might not like Shahid and Priyanka put together because they both might be single!! Shahid belongs to AMRITA RAO!!!. Well anyway I love Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra and I was excited to see their movie “Kaminey” but then I saw this trailer…WOW!! No clue what the hell is going on ( sorry for foul language) it’s jumbled up and it’s hillarious!! Anyway it still looks interesting. Priyanka’s funny when she say’s “toh  kya maine  rape ki tumhara??” 🙂 But I really don’t like Shahid’s look compared to what he looked like in Vivah or even Jab We Met…but he’s still cute to me!! 🙂

Here’s the video:

Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif breaking up because of Shahid??

22 02 2009

Not again!!! How many times will people attempt to break up Salman and Katrina…and this time blaming it on my Shahid!!! Seriously another gossip just so they can get people to read there newspapers/magazines. People just plain out know that Salman and Katrina really love eachother. Anyway they think it’s because of Shahid Kapoor doing a movie with Katrina Kaif…and the whole feud between Salman-Shahid at the Rockstars performance a few years ago. Well Shahid and Salman are over it so why doesn’t the media get over it??? Anyway here’s the article:

According to the buzz, cracks are appearing in yet another Bolly relationship. All”s not well between with the Salman-Katrina jodi. Fights between the couple are increasing. Most of their jhagdas are over Katrina’s career decisions.

Salman has many enemies in the industry,and he doesn”t want his girl to act with them. Until now, Kat played the obedient girlfriend but recently she signed a film with Shahid Kapoor. When Khan heard that she”d signed a film with Kapoor, he was furious. Sallu and Shahid have not been on talking terms since the Rockstar shows last year.

Sallu didn”t know!

Says a source, “Katrina signed Raj Santoshi”s untitled film with Shahid, despite knowing there were problems between Shahid and her beau, who is not in the mood to forgive or forget this over-stepping.

Sallu feels Kat owes her career to him, and even if she didn”t, as her boyfriend and a senior actor, he thinks she should discuss her projects with him. Of late, Kaif has started making her own decisions without consulting Salman.

Some time back, she was in Sydney shooting for Singh Is Kinng and it was only when Salman called her, that he learned she was shooting with Akshay Kumar for Vipul Shah”s film. He was shocked! He even didn”t know about her film with Ranbir Kapoor with Yash Raj, till he read about it in the papers.”

Naturally, Salman doesn”t want Katrina to go ahead with the Shahid film. Says an insider, “He has made his displeasure clear. But Salman will never forbid Katrina to work with anyone.

He gives people space but he”s very hurt that she would choose to sign a film with a known enemy. Katrina should have respected his feelings. Even Salman”s friends and family don”t sign people Salman doesn”t like to work in their films.”

After the whole thing blew out of proportion, Katrina is believed to have back-tracked from her commitment. When quizzed about it, Katrina who is currently shooting in Australia for Singh Is Kinng denies that she”s having second thoughts about the film, “That”s ridiculous! We are all waiting to work out dates with Shahid.”

Time to change

However Director Raj Kumar Santoshi denies that Shahid”s dates are a problem, “Shahid is a very professional, helpful and cooperative boy. His dates have never been a problem.

“However he admits that the film will not go on to the floors for sometime now. “When I saw Jab We Met I realised that some part of it is similar to mine and was clashing with mine so I decided to change the script.”

Originally, it was a love story, but now it can be anything a love story, a political satire or comedy. Shahid liked the original character tremendously.


I am no serial dater: Shahid Kapoor Interview!!

17 02 2009

As all of you know I love Shahid Kapoor and by reading this Interview of his I fell in love with him even more!! Plus I try to always find some way of puting Shahid and Amrita Rao in one sentence so I have a chance again!!HE’S SINGLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOW AMRITA RAO CAN DATE HIM!!! Anyway here’s the interview:


February 17, 2009, (Sawf News) – Shahid Kapoor fears press projections of him as a serial dater will make it hard for him to hookup with a girl again.

“The way I am being projected as a serial dater, I am sure that I’m not going to get a girlfriend anytime soon,” he lamented speaking to DNA.

But doesn’t he already have a girlfriend? How about the congratulatory text that he sent to Sania after she won the mixed doubles title at the Australian open?

“Isn’t that a normal thing? The whole world congratulated her…” retorts Shahid.

We didn’t, because we don’t have her number, and we doubt many besides Shahid have it!

With three back to back hits – Vivah, Jab We Met and Kismat Konnection – and hunky good looks Shahid has a huge fan base, but few friends in the industry.

“I have a handful of friends left and all of them are from outside the film industry. I am happy this way,” says Shahid, who is currently shooting for Anurag Singh’s Next in Jaipur with Rani Mukerji. The film additionally features Rakhi Sawant and Sherlyn Chopra.

Shahid feels tabloid interest in his personal life is intrusive but he has no intention of wielding the pen himself, even though his grandfather, Anwar Azeem, was a noted journalist.

Imtiaz Ali’s, Saif-Deepika starrer finally named “Love Aaj Kal”!

3 02 2009

I was hoping that Kareena Kapoor would get this role just to see if it would as good as Kareena-Shahid movie ‘Jab We Met’ but then again Imtiaz didn’t want that whole drama so he choose Deepika. Why? Don’t ask me as Imtiaz Ali!! Anyway as far as the Saif-Deepika pairing go I really don’t see it happening! But then agian I haven’t examined them closely together. Saif-Deepika starrer is going to be called ‘Love Aaj Kal’ and that’s confirmed! Wow, ‘Love Aaj Kal’ doesn’t that seem like the same Hindi-English mix as ‘Jab We Met’ ? I guess Imtiaz is going to give us a ‘Jab We Met’, well i can tell you one thing making a duplicate won’t work Imtiaz! Here’s the rest of the story:

Imtiaz Ali’s much awaited Saif Ali Khan- Deepika Padukone starrer finally seems to have found a suitable title. The film is called Love Aaj Kal. The title Love Aaj Kal has a mix of both Hindi and English words just like it was with Imtiaz’s last release Jab We Met.

Bollywood Hungama spoke to Dinesh Vijan, producer of the film and Saif’s business partner, who confirmed the same, “Yes our film is called Love Aaj Kal. It is 95% complete and should be out some time mid-year”

Dinesh also confirmed that besides Saif and Deepika, the film also stars Rishi Kapoor, Vir Das and two other newcomers. He however denied that rumors doing the rounds about Neetu Singh Kapoor starring in the film.
