I can’t pick up Ranbir’s trophies:Rishi

2 03 2010

Rishi Kapoor, who was nominated in the Best Actor for a supporting role category at the recent Filmfare Awards for his lovable performance in Love Aaj Kal didn’t show up at the function.

He and wife Neetu stayed back in New Delhi despite knowing that their son Ranbir Kapoor, who was in the US, stood a good chance of picking up a trophy that night. A candid Rishi said, “My son is not a flash in the pan. He will keep getting awards through his career. However I can’t go to every awards function picking up his trophies. If I win, I’ll be there.” Point noted Chintu, but you should learn to be more sporting. After all, Ranbir is the future of  Bollywood.

Kareena to perform live w/beau Saif!

18 01 2010

So what if Kareena Kapoor was not a part of Saif Ali Khan’s home production Love Aaj Kal. The actress was a tad disappointed. But now she is all set to get back at Deepika Padukone by performing live on the songs of Love Aaj Kal along with beau Saif Ali Khan at an award function to be held on Sunday in Mumbai.

It may be recalled that director Imitaz Ali did not want Kareena for Love Aaj Kal because he felt that she was not the right choice for the role and he chose Deepika over Kareena. Though Saif and Kareena have done couple of films in past and are also seeing each other for quite a long time now, they have not performed live so far.

Now Kareena and Saif are all set to perform and that too on the hit numbers of his home-production Love Aaj Kal. Source close to the actors reveal, “The couple is super excited as they are going to perform live on stage together for the first time. What is more interesting is that they will be performing on the hit numbers of Love Aaj Kal.” Kareena finally grooves to the beats of Love Aaj Kal.

Kareena chooses Saif over IIFA!!

9 06 2009

Kareena Kapoor decided to go to with Saif on a tour instead of perform at the IIFA awards! She was supposed to do her famous belly-dance that she was learning for months! Rumors why she dropped out of IIFA :

1) She really loves Saif.

2) Shahid-Priyanka are performing. (Pressure can kill 🙂 )

3) Kambakkht Ishq is postponed till July 3rd, 2009 so she doesn’t want to do the track sequence!

Whatever the reason may be, Kareena has made her decision, but she not the only one who opted out!!

No wonder Kareena is giving a miss to a stage performance at IIFA to be with her Saifu in England for the ongoing T20 world cup.

Kareena’s business manager has confirmed the lady’s decision to opt out and said it’s because of contractual problems. The buzz is that Kareena wanted her performance to mark the starting or the end of the function. But the organizers had no such plan. The grand finale performance was already booked for the Bachchans, Amitabh, Abhishek and Aishwarya respectively.

Saif, on the other hand, has tied up with T20 to promote his maiden production venture Love Aaj Kal and he will be in England to do the publicity of his movie. And, unsurprisingly, Bebo decided to accompany him despite the fact that she was getting paid a whopping amount for IIFA performance. Not only was she learning belly dancing under Shiamak Davar , but had also finalized her dress for the performance. She was to dance to her song Marjani from ‘Billu’.

Saif too wanted to use the platform of IIFA to promote ‘Love Aaj Kal’ and had thought of an international press meet but later dropped the idea.

Saif and Kareena are not the only ones who have opted out of IIFA. Shahrukh Khan has been giving his royal snub to IIFA for the last many years. Farah Khan also won’t attend the awards night as she’s choreographing a song for SRK in the US. And now, even Akshay Kumar has decided to miss this year’s IIFA as he’s taking his son on a holiday.

The IIFA weekend will be held from June 11 to 13 in Macau
