I’m not seeing Deepika:Ranbir Kapoor

12 06 2010

Ranbir Kapoor squashes the Deepika–Katrina rumours and still believes in the old-fashioned concept of love. Filmfare gets the real picture

All the A-list directors want to work with you. Does that give you a kick?
I believe that you have to be the right person at the right time in the movies. I guess today these filmmakers are writing subjects for younger heroes. They’ve worked with all the superstars who are in a particular age bracket. Now they probably want to explore ideas or want to tell stories which need younger actors. Today of course, you have Shahid Kapoor, Imran Khan, Harman Baweja and Prateik. They have quite a choice. I just feel that I’m the right guy at the right time. I’m humbled that such good filmmakers want to work with me, that slowly I am ticking off from my list the names of filmmakers I aspired to work with. It only makes me greedy to want to do better and bigger stuff in the future.

 Coming to your personal life, talk is that Deepika Padukone and you are back together.
No. Deepika and I shared a lovely relationship. Everyone knows we’re not in a relationship anymore. There’s no negativity between us. Deepika, I’ve always maintained, is one of the most amazing girls I’ve met. She’s a good person, a great talent, she works hard and she comes from a good family. And the respect I have for her, she has for me. We have common friends, sometimes when we go out we bump into each other. If she does good work in a movie, I’ll call her up and tell her, she calls me for her movie trials, I do the same. It’s a relationship I’ve made for life. If I’m not in a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship with her, we’re definitely friends. And I’d like to maintain that all my life.

 Even after the two of you broke up, you’ve kept in touch, right?
Of course. You have to be mature and deal with these things as sensitively as possible. In the end, she’ll always get more flak than the guy. That’s the unfairness of this society.  So you need to be sensitive. And when things are fine, when the troubled waters under the bridge have calmed down, you can start a friendship with your ex. It’s possible.

 You’re being linked to Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra these days…
I’ve always been open whenever anyone has asked me whether I’m in a relationship. And now when I say I’m not in a relationship you should respect that. Katrina and I have done two films (Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani and Raajneeti) together. Our first film together was a big hit, so people regard us as this hit onscreen couple. But if tomorrow we have a flop, people will not cast us together. It’s as simple.

 People are whispering about Priyanka chopra and you too.
Priyanka and I have just completed  Anjaana Anjaani. She’s a great actress, we all know that. She is a very good person and we really gelled. When I work in a movie, I don’t say I won’t be friendly with my co-star because I don’t want to deal with stories of linkups. I want a happy atmosphere on the sets. I want the atmosphere to be such that we just sit and talk about the movie we’re doing or about life. Just because you’re friendly with someone you’re spending a hundred days on the sets with, doesn’t mean you’re having a physical or an emotional relationship with that person. They are just two colleagues who are hanging together, discussing life and discussing movies.

 Have you ever cheated in a relationship?
No, never. And I don’t think I ever will. That’s something I’ll never do. It also depends on what kind of a relationship you are in. Sometimes two people don’t end a relationship because they are in a comfort zone. They just go on. Then someone comes along and it’s alleged that that person is the reason for their breaking up. But that third person only got noticed because things between the two of them were not working. If they were then they would not notice anyone else. No third person can break a relationship. If a relationship is working nothing can break it

Celeb Diary from Filmfare!

4 06 2010

Filmfare brings to you the imagined day-to-day confessions of your favourite female celebrities. Read On. With my little comments below each actresses statement!!

Kareena KapoorKareena Kapoor

Dear Diary,
I love myself. I just saw the teaser of Milenge Milenge and I feel the timing is pathetic. You think the makers of this film are playing a nasty prank on me? Anyway, I’m looking quite hot in the promos, so I should care less.
While interviewing me an anchor asked if I was secretly married to Saifu. I wanted to slap her, but I was live on national Television, so I just gave her my fake laughter and ignored the question.
Karan put up my picture on his Twitter account and titled it as ‘My favourite girl!’ Isn’t that awesome? I’m so cool! I love myself.
Going out for dinner with Saifu. Will be back and give you updates. Tata! I Love Myself.

My Comments (AlishaKhan) Um..okay..Kareena a little vicious today,why? Um & what’s with the whole ” timing is pathetic” of milenge milenge..well Bebo..as much as I love you..WAKE UP..your the reason of the delay!!

 Katrina KaifKatrina Kaif

Dear Diary,
Aap Kaisaa ho? Erm. Did I get that right?  Sorry if I didn’t. I’m so frustrated. Even my tutors have given up on me. My co-actors make fun of my diction on the sets. The other day I was rehearsing a scene and I don’t know what I exactly said but everyone around me was secretly laughing. 
Dubbing is easy though. I usually read the dialogues from the script and the sound guy matches it with the shot. Directors should find a way like that. Don’t you think?

My Comment: Katrina we love you!!! And even if you can’t speak fluent hindi, you’re trying and that’s all that matters + you’re beautiful and are a great actress!! 🙂

 Bipasha BasuBipasha Basu

Dear Diary,
Sorry I did not write in for the last 3 days. Actually, last week I attended a friend’s birthday bash and hogged chocolate cake and chips there. I had a lot of aerated drinks too (they were short of sugar free tablets).  Result: I put on 2 Kgs in one night. You know how obsessed I am with keeping fit. Thus, for the last 3 days I was working out in the gym. My weight machine says I’ve lost 4 Kgs and now I’m feeling better than ever. John’s happy too. Not that he really cares. But I do!

My Comment: Love the part where Bips says ” John’s happy too. Not that he really cares”..they’re both such a cute couple. And congrats on loosing the weight Bips 🙂

Aishwarya RaiAishwarya Rai

Dear Diary,
Just attended the Raavan promotional event. I was camouflaged by Ram and Raavan. I have to admit, my face was green. For all the cruelties my character goes through in the movie, it should’ve been named Sita.
I am bored of my Barbie-like demeanor, but Mani sir has promised that perception will change. He says people will love the proud Barbie in Raavan. Should I be happy with that?

My Comment: Um.. you should and shouldn’t..actually I have to see the movie to give an honest opinion..so No comment!

Priyanka ChopraPriyanka Chopra

Dear Diary,
I’m tired of people calling me Piggy Chops. Even at events when people invite me on stage they introduce me as Piggy Chops. Dude! Get a Life. I have a name.
Everyone wants to know when I will get into a steady relationship. Even I want to know that!
It’s mindless to link me with my co-actors because I’ve always been caught up between these bromances in movies that it’s highly unlikely. And the link-up story with me and Harman. I guess that’s possible only in 2050!

My comment: I don’t like the tittle “Piggy Chops” on Priyanka either but I love calling her “Pranks” but I agree with Priyanka, we should respect her name she has a REAL one you know. And on the Harman thing about maybe in 2050, kinda harsh but i wish it was sooner, because they’re so cute! 🙂

 Rani MukherjeeRani Mukherjee

Dear Diary,
I don’t know where my career graph is heading. Actually, I’m not even sure if I have a career graph anymore!
Directors have started taking my performance in Black way too seriously. Now-a-days they approach me with Braille scripts and before I can explain, they start enacting me from the movie and ask for “Waa- ahh- ttt- err.”
Also, I’m desperately looking for a voice makeover. I’m trying various concoctions and capsules to smoothen out my hoarse voice. Do you know if there is anything such as a voice cosmetic surgery? 

My Comment: Rani we love your voice..it makes you, you!!

Sonam KapoorSonam Kapoor

Dear Diary,
I’m so excited about my next movie, I Hate Love Stories. Let me tell you a funny story. Recently, we were shooting in New Zealand and I fell into cow dung. The crew had quite a laugh at my expense.
The other day I was invited to a radio station to promote my film. And for some reason, they had got pigeons into the studio. I don’t exactly know what they were thinking.

My comment: Can’t wait for the movie either!!! I hate luv storys will surely rock the theatres and become a huge hit. Sona-Imu pairing is cute even though I like Sona with Biru more. Love ya Sona 🙂 ❤

Preity ZintaPreity Zinta

Dear Diary,
IPL ended on a bad note. And I’m tired of flashing my plastic smile on television saying “there’s always a next time”. I’m so disappointed in my boys you know. If next year they continue their dismal form, I would probably land up on the field and play instead.
Today a woman took me by surprise when she jumped on me with her camera and that too in a public toilet. I love my fans but this kind of behaviour is quite unacceptable. Ting! 

My comment: I agree with Preity, I hate people with cameras shooting pictures randomly..kinda annoying!!

AsinAsin

Dear Diary,
I always knew people would link me with my co-actors. That’s normal. But the media has started spreading rumors about me and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. That’s ridiculous. I think I was better off in the south. Well, not really. I’m happy working in Hindi films but I’m tired of these link-ups. Now I refuse to talk about relationships and DHONI in any of my interviews. I’m so homely. Why don’t people get it?

My Comment: Leave Asin alone media!! She’s a Southern girl with values just like the rest of the actresses so give Dhoni another girl!

KajolKajol

Dear Diary,
8:00 – Breakfast for Kids and Ajay
2:00 – Lunch for Kids and Ajay
4:00 – Tea and snacks for Kids and Ajay
8:00 – Dinner for Kids and Ajay
10:00 – Lullaby for kids and Ajay. Oops, only the kids

My Comment: Kajol’s entery the cutest..Ajay and her are happily married and that’s nice!





Lara Dutta gets Don 2!!

25 05 2010

Lara Dutta is the latest star to join Farhan Akhtar’s Don 2. The actress has been cast alongside Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Arjun Rampal — all three who have been retained from its prequel Don.

And though producer Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan are tight-lipped about her role, a source revealed that the actress is touted to play a femme fatale in this slick-flick. However, whether Lara will be seen vying for SRK’s attention alongside Priyanka remains to be seen. A source said, “Lara’s not replacing Eesha (Koppikhar). She’s a completely new addition to the cast with an entirely new part written for her. But yes, the role will require Lara to learn some form of martial arts and she is very kicked about doing an action role.”

For Lara, it may just be a dream come true, as she had not too long ago revealed her wish of doing a hard-core action-oriented role. Incidentally, with Lara and Priyanka on board, the film teams two former Miss Indias (Universe and World, respectively) who had made their debut together in the 2003 Akshay Kumar starrer Andaz.

Priyanka Chopra on marriage and men!

16 05 2010

Mumbai: First, she seemed like going around with Hurman Baweja, then came the ever-charming Shahid Kapoor and then there was a rumored liaison with the dashing international star Gerard Butler but truth about Piggy Chops’ love-life has remained under wraps. However, when it comes to the concept of marriage, Bollywood glam queen Priyanka Chopra gets idealistic and strongly believes that marriage is for keeps.

// //
 

She might have been linked with a lot of men, but never has she spilled beans over her marriage plans, or even shared with her fans what kind of relationship she would like to be in. Looking at her lifestyle, some might get an impression that she is rather cold about relationships. However, this otherwise feral actress recently cleared her views about marriage saying that in her heart she is a one-man woman and is waiting for that one guy who will sweep her off her feet!

While talking to a news daily, she let her guard down and said, “I strongly believe in the institution of marriage and hold immense respect for it. I am not at all in favour of polygamy.”

Coincidentally, polygamy is the theme of her next movie ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’ where she gets to play the wife of seven men, whom she murders one by one.

Priyanka parties hard!

12 05 2010

Priyanka Chopra who is currently in Coorg shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj’s Saat Khoon Maaf got a day off on Monday, along with the rest of the cast and crew, as co-star Naseeruddin Shah was unwell. The unit decided to make the most of it by throwing an impromptu party.

A source reveals, “The whole gang partied by the pool side. Priyanka was happy as she has been shooting non-stop for the film. Usha Uthup who’s part of the cast sang old hits and entertained everyone.” Everyone ended up in the pool by the end of the day.

Priyanka’s body basics!

8 05 2010

Priyanka Chopra’s fitness regime has gone for a toss just before she begins shooting for Khatron Ke Khiladi that was previously hosted by the daredevil Akshay Kumar. The actor has shown that she likes to be a perfectionist in her work and thus has pressed the panic button because she doesn’t want to be underprepared when she does the deadly stunts that the reality show on Colors is known to belt out. By being not up to the mark on fitness would mean that Priyanka might also be running the risk of getting injured while doing the strenuous stunts as her body has not been adequately built to take the pressure and stress.

“Due to the hectic travel schedule that Priyanka has been having for the past four months having travelled to US for her movie Anjaana Anjaani, then Malaysia and now Coorg for the shooting of Saat Khoon Maaf; she hasn’t really got enough time to work on her fitness. She was in Mumbai too for three days but there was so much happening and she needed to do so much that she had no time to hit the gym. She needs to build her body and stamina to cope up with the back-breaking stunts that the show will have this time around. The stunts are getting harder and tougher every year. With her body not being in the level that can easily cope up with these action sequences, she runs a great risk,” says an insider very close to the developments.
“Priyanka understands this and has thus given a deep thought on how to work on her fitness even when she is travelling. She immediately reached a solution to her problem as she has now flown her trainer Nadir from Mumbai to her outdoor shoot in Coorg where she will be camped for nearly two months. Priyanka now religiously makes it a point to work out on her fitness for a minimum one hour right after her shooting ends for the day. She is now shaping up very well to take on the show. Priyanka has done action before like in Don and Drona and thus her body is quite trained to handle action. She now just has to take her body back to that level,” reveals an eyewitness from Coorg.
