Two MORE actors have jumped on the "ripped-six-pack-yeaaah" (read in jock voice) bandwagon. Mr. Riteish Deshmukh (for Housefull) and Emraan Hashmi (for Once Upon A Time in Mumbai).

I'll admit, Riteish's 'new look' makes me go "damn" but... I still cringe looking at Emraan Hashmi.

Happy Birthday, Legend!

I don't think I'll be celebrating every single celebrity's birthday on here, but when you're a legend, it's a must. So...

Happy 87th Birthday to Yusuf "Dilip Kumar" Khan!

Mr. Kumar has been associated with some of the greatest films in India Cinema. He holds the most award for "Filmfare Best Actor"(eight) and was honored the Dadasaheb Phalke Award so it's safe to say he's the REAL King Khan though his nickname "Tragedy King" is fitting. It's so awesome to have an actor from the Golden Era alive today. When Mughal-E-Azam was re-released in color, he was the only existing cast memeber. Imagine!

Just wanted to wish the big guy, that's all :)

Internat'l Appearance

Yippie Ay Oh Kye Ay! Priyanka Chopra is currently in South Africa gearing up to be one of the ten judges for the Miss World contest. HOLLER! Okay, so I guess it shouldn't be that surprising or exciting seeing how she is an alumni of the competition.

Priyanka Chopra won the Miss World competition in the year 2000 at the tender age of 18, apparently one of the youngest winners. Here's a video of her crowning moment:

I held my breath when they announced the winner as if I didn't already know results.


India has held the Miss World title five times.


Reita Faria Miss World 1966

Aishwarya Rai Miss World 1994

Diana Hayden Miss World 1997

Yukta Mookhey Miss world 1999

Priyanka Chopra Miss World 2000

Seriously, how cool must it be to say "Yeah, I was Miss World 2000." Nobody will get to have that cool of a year in the next 990 years.

Promos, Trailers and Friends

Stills of KARTHIK CALLING KARTHIK (KCK) have finally slipped out! Quick sidenote: does the title 'Karthik Calling Karthik' remind you of "Kramer VS Kramer"? Me too. Anyway check the stills out!

I really like the close-up shot. Something very chilling in the way Deepika's looking at the camera.

Next fillum. I'm so so so ashamed, I didn't know about this film earlier. I came across it while doing some Vidya Balan stalking. It's titled ISHQIYA, slated to release January 29th, directed by Abhishek Chaubhey (writer for Omkara), produced by Shemaroo Ent. & Vishal Bhardwaj and stars Naseerudding Shah, Arshad Warsi and Vidya Balan. I accidentally read a plot of the story, but I think it may have revealed too much so I'll spare you the info. Watch the trailer and enjoy! Um... since the film IS associated with Vishal Bhardwaj don't be surprised by the vulgar language. Just warnin' ya!

at 0:46 I'm reminded of 'City of God', you? This looks like it could work... for a select crowd. Omkara, obviously, had a lot of the same flavor as this movie but it also had a lot of big names that brought in a crowd who, otherwise, wouldn't enjoy such films. Just a guess, anyway. It will probably receive a lot of critical acclaim. What do you think?

So, I randomly caught this on TV the other day and remember reading about it a while ago. It completely slipped my mind to post it here until I saw it on TV. The film is titled RAAT GAYI BAAT GAYI (RGBG), starring Neha Dhupia, Vinay Pathak & Rajat Kapoor, directed by Saurabh Shukla, and produced by Rangita Pritish Nandy & Rajat Kapoor. It's slated to release on New Years Eve... hm ironic (once you watch the trailer, you'll understand). Anyway, Vinay and Rajat are both fine actors and I've always said that I'm probably the only Neha Dhupia fan out there (alllright, so from the looks of it, I'm a lot of celebs' fans. I guess it's why I love the movie industry!). It has already won a lot of acclaim at many film festivals, which doesn't surprise me. So check out this lovely trailer:

Yes, yes, yes I realize it seems heavily inspired by The Hangover and most people are probably under that impression which is why Director Saurabh had a statement ready to deny it. He says,
"It's untrue; both these films are nothing alike. Let me clarify that I started Raat Gayi Baat Gayi much before The Hangover was made. I thought of Raat Gayi Baat Gayi when I attended a certain house party a while back. I was feeling terribly bored and kept staring at people aimlessly. The next morning, I narrated the episode to Rajat, who suggested that I write a story revolving around a party. That's how the story of Raat Gayi Baat Gayi took shape."

Since I want to believe it, I'm going to. It is a pretty simple storyline.

Next up. I've held back from showing you every single Rocket Singh promo there's been, cause there are a lot. But this one I had to... it has Gauhar Khan (the chick at 0:13). :)

Not sure why I'm still dropping promos of the films seeing as how it just released today. An insider of Filmfare who just got done watching the film and I mean JUST got done (technology, how I love thee) says,
"Rocket Singh, definitely one of the best movies this year!. Ranbir as a sardar is awesome, so is supporting cast"
I'm also reading from others that...
"[it] orbits sales world charmingly. Adorable, drama-free, super-witty, superbly paced-story & dialogues. Plot flows smoothly."
"Jerry Maguiresque sincerity rooted in Indian middle class values and the degenerate crprt culture of the last decade"

Woohoo! Hope all this is true.

That's all for now, folks!

Am I Nuts? Sisters From Another Mister

So about a year or two ago, I went on a wild wild rampage searching for the movie 'Rang.' I don't know why. It wasn't a hit, but I HAD TO WATCH IT... mostly because I'm a Divya Bharti fan (I don't know if it's because she's forever young, or what but I love her). Anywhere it was NOWHERE to be found on the internet, which is just really bizarre because every movie and their mom is on the internet. Anyway, now when it comes on TV I feel it is only my duty to watch or DVR it. It's only come on twice... a couple of days ago being the second time. Anywaaay, I was watching it today and I cannot get over how similar Anushka Sharma and Divya Bharati look. I said it right when I saw the promos for Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and I'll say it again. They should have used Anushka in Om Shanti Om because I'm convinced the story of the film was inspired by Divya's death.

Anyway, I pulled together a picture of the two sisters from another mister and I want your opinion. Am I nuts?? Holler at a sister.
