Koffee with Karan coming soon!!

10 06 2010

Ace Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar has confirmed that he is coming back to the small screen with the third season of his popular celebrity chat show “Koffee With Karan”.

“I am indeed doing season three of ‘Koffee With Karan’. Hopefully, with new lovers, new enemies and new questions. I am doing it and I am very excited. It will be on air in August or September,” Karan told.

“Koffee With Karan” was first aired in 2004, followed by the second season in 2007. The show saw Karan in some candid conversations with celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Rani Mukerji, Kareena Kapoor, Hrithik Roshan and Priyanka Chopra – most of whom are his friends.

The filmmaker, who is looking forward to the release of his home production “I Hate Luv Storys” July 2, was in the capital Wednesday to host Chivas Studio Spotlight as the brand ambassador of Chivas Regal.

Kareena moves everyone into tears!

Don’t conclude anything wrong with the title. Kareena Kapoorhas not done anything wrong that has brought tears to one’s eye, instead her flawless performance while shooting for Karan Johar’s ‘Stepmom’ has moved Karan Johar’s production team into tears. Kareena Kapoor has enacted a tough scene not only in one take but flawlessly. It was a tough scene and no one expected her to give the right shot at a single take.

Kareena’s stupendous performance has earned her standing ovation and filmmaker Karan Johar was very much impressed with her acting. Says a close source, “It was a difficult scene, but when the tape began to roll Kareena surprised everyone by flawlessly delivering it in one ‘take’. Everyone’s eyes were moist.”

Kareena has done extensive research for her role. The film also stars Kajol and Arjun Rampal.

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!


Don’t call Karan gay!

Filmmaker Karan Johar, otherwise known for his jovial and friendly nature, has hit back at people making comments on his personal life on microblogging site Twitter.

“While most tweets are objective, frank and warm… the ones that are constantly making tactless statements about my personal life are upsetting,” Karan wrote.

“Critical appraisal and analysis is more than welcome…but insinuations and comments about my life, choices and orientation are NOT…,” he added.

Actress Sonam Kapoor tweeted in favour of Karan, suggesting he should block such people.

“Block them on your twitter account, they are haters who are just jealous,” she wrote.

Right now he is busy completing his untitled film with Kajol, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Rampal. The movie  is an adaptation of Chris Columbus’ 1998 movie “Stepmom”.

Karan is also expected to start shooting for the “Dostana” sequel with Abhishek Bachchan and John Abraham this summer.
