Where the party at ?! [25 Dec 2006|06:53am]
New York, If all goes well, thousands of people in San Jose, California, will ring in the New Year dancing to hot and sizzling Bollywood numbers.

Both the San Jose convention centre and the Santa Clara convention centre are hosting Bollywood and bhangra-themed parties for New Year's Eve.

Local DJs and promoters say that the demand for Indian music has exploded; and Bollywood is the height of hip.

"Since Bollywood is so famous now, everyone wants to put Bollywood in their parties," says DJ Salim. "They understand that OK, if they're going to play that music, the party is going to be good," according to Metro Active, a weekly newspaper.

Bollywood-themed parties have become a solid business model for local clubs. The monthly Bollywood Nights party at the Avalon, a local discothèque in San Jose attracts anywhere between 600 and 1,000 people, depending on the guest DJ.

DJ Jivan, who runs a professional DJ service based in Milpitas, says that in the last few years there's been a massive increase in the popularity of South Asian music.

DJ Reika one of the most well known emissaries of bhangra in the US is all set to fire up the New Year's party at the Santa Clara convention centre. Organisers are also throwing in a fashion show to add some extra glamour to the party.

Well done Kangana !!!! we were glad to have you with us in KL :) [16 Dec 2006|05:25pm]
Mumbai, Dec 14 (IANS) Actress Kangana Ranaut is so impressed by Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan that she wants to get married to somebody as cultured and as nice.

She met Hrithik at the recent Global Indian Film Awards (GIFA) in Kuala Lumpur where she was honoured with the best female debutante for her role in "Gangster - A Love Story".

"In a world filled with dishonourable intentions Hrithik is such a thorough gentleman. He knows how to make a lady feel special. He spoke to me as if I was the best actress in the world," Kangana told IANS.

"I think his wife is very lucky. Where can I find a husband like that?" sighs Kangana, who has no one that special in her life.

What about rumours of her and Upen Patel? "Are we talking about someone special in my life?" she retorts tongue-in-cheek.

It was touch-and-go for actress Kangana at her first awards function in Kuala Lumpur. Kangana went through unexpected trauma last week. A routine delay at the GIFA awards made the actress miss the flight for Dubai where she was supposed to attend the Dubai Film Festival the next day.

"I don't know if it was a routine delay. I've no experience with awards ceremonies. GIFA was my first ever awards. And I was damn excited to get the trophy from Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra.

"However, the function, which was supposed to start at 7 p.m. finally, started at 11 p.m. I rushed out soon after I got my award. But it was too late. I had missed my flight to Dubai for the festival there."

Fortunately, she was able to find a place in a later flight.

"And I reached Dubai just in time for the red carpet at the film festival."

Kangana shudders at the thought of the losses she'd have suffered if she had failed to reach Dubai.

"It was an endorsed event and heavy compensations were involved. But no complaints! I loved the idea of getting my first award. This was actually my second award in two days. But I couldn't be in Singapore for my best-actress award at the Asian Awards For 1st Films."

Is it true the producers Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt didn't arrange for her travel to Singapore in time?

"I wouldn't like to comment on that. The Bhatts have been more than fair to me. In fact, I made it a point to thank them at GIFA."

Yay for GIFA ! [16 Dec 2006|05:22pm]
Mumbai, "Kaante" and "Zinda" director Sanjay Gupta has returned from the Global Indian Film Awards (GIFA) in Kuala Lumpur raving about Suniel Shetty's management skills.

Suniel's Popcorn Entertainment was given the charge to look after the celebrity guests in Kuala Lumpur and Gupta says it did a superb job.

"We really got to see how much goodwill Suniel commands. GIFA is in its second year and IIFA (International Indian Film Academy awards) in its seventh year. But the hospitality was equal in both places.

"I guess the fact that Suneil comes from the restaurant business makes him an expert in hospitality. I saw this man standing in the hotel lobby till six in the morning receiving guests. I kept asking him if he had slept for even six hours in the six days of the event," Gupta told IANS.

"Suniel was personally there to take care of not just the stars but also their assistants, man-Fridays and drivers. I've never seen so many smiling faces at any awards ceremony. There were 103 BMWS on service 24 hours for the guests.

"In Mumbai I only know three stars, Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Ekta Kapoor, who drive 740 BMW. Here in Kuala Lumpur every Tom Dick and Hari bhai was given one to drive."

In spite of all the arrangements there were many who complained; Gupta is shocked by the cribbers.

"Those who drive Fiats were given Mercedes. And still they're bitching. The show, food, room service - it wasn't just us VVIPs in fancy suites. Even ordinary guests were given suites. Suniel's whole Popcorn Entertainment team looked after every need of every guest."

Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmed Badawi and the royal couple also attended the gala night.

"We had a football match and a fashion show for charity. At the fashion show, stars did major auctioneering. Salman was supposed to auction one of his 'Baabul' outfits. I suggested he auction the jacket he was wearing. He took off his jacket and brought in the big numbers.

"The next day at the deputy prime minister's house - Shah Rukh Khan, John Abraham, Bipasha Basu - everyone sang for orphaned kids. Huge amounts of money were collected for charity."

Gupta screened "Zaahir", one of his short stories from the collection entitled "Dus Kahaniyan". "Zaahir" features Manoj Bajpai and Diya Mirza.

"It evoked tremendous response."

preity ! [13 Dec 2006|10:32pm]

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned! Looks like Preity Zinta won't be flashing her famous dimples anytime soon as the woman is mighty pissed with the media (by that we mean channels like AajTak ) and has accused certain sections of the press for intruding in her personal life.

On the recent Ness Wadi Controversy where he was accused of beating up some laborers outside Zinta's house, this is what the gal had to say:

"You have said that at 12 O'clock there has been maar-peet (a fight)."

"Tell me, which place in India do you have workers working in a building at 12 O'clock at night? You all put any kind of news in print in circulation and then the onus falls on us to clarify. On what basis are you putting a news item?”

"If you want to talk about me, then say I'm the most beautiful woman and I have the most amazing films. Why are you bringing in my boyfriend and me and creating this mess?" she asked.

She challenged the press to find out the woman who was allegedly injured by Ness in a brawl. "You find me the woman who was reportedly injured. I say on national television that I will pay Rs 1 crore to any lady who has been injured. And that is hard-earned money for me," she said.

whoa .. calm down woman !

Poignant letter. [13 Dec 2006|10:30pm]
The Poignant Letter Which Sanjay Dutt Wrote To Bollywood!

Here is the poignant letter which Sanjau Dutt wrote to the Indian Film Industry for all their support:

"This is the only place I know… the movie industry. I was born into it and I've grown up in it. For me this film industry has always been the family I've known and been nurtured by. I was raised here. I've always been the son for many and a brother to many more. And I will never forget the fact that my fraternity has always supported me. Even after my life support system, my father, passed away, leaving me shattered, the industry never let me feel that my sisters and I were orphaned. In fact, dad's untimely demise again showed my sisters and me that we could always count on the film fraternity for their love and support.

Which is why, it moves me, but doesn't surprise me, when I hear they they've decided to sign a petition letter in my support. It brought tears to my eyes and emotionally moved my sisters and me, especially since none of the Dutt family members were told of this. We were kept totally in the dark about this campaign. My sisters and I have been taken aback at this magnanimous gesture. I'm sure dad would have been moved as much. I'm sure he's up there, smiling and looking out for me — like he's always done.

For me, the knowledge that members of my film family are there to support me and pray for me is motivation and blessing enough. I humbly thank everyone and request them to withdraw their signature campaign on the 12th of December 2006. The rest is in God's great hands. Like I have always said, and I repeat again, I have full faith in our Indian judiciary; the law will take it's own course.… Pray for me …"

Yours Sincerely,
Sanjay Dutt

<3 Happy Valentines Day <3 [11 Feb 2006|08:29pm]

[ mood | I've been studying , How do yo ]

Its that time of the year again when most are in their "mushy" best .. Valentines Day is coming soon ... I was recently at this pre-valentines bash , and obviously bollywood-desi music has some of the perfect lovey-dovey numbers for every situation . As most people say , its a three stage periodic cycle .
Stage 1 . The Woo-ing part
Stage 2 . The (so-called) "we're-in-Love" part
Stage 3 . Heartbreak .

And bollywood has the perfect songs for every situation right from references on how-to-woo-your-woman to what-do-you-sing-when-you're-heartbroken ....
 And now that it's Valentines Day time , I thought I'd put up a few ...

Salman-Ash feud takes new turn [05 Feb 2006|12:54am]

Wasn’t it Salman Khan who kept hovering around Aishwarya Rai even though she had given up the relationship long ago? Wasn’t he the one who kept following her on her film shoots? It was on the set of Rohan Sippy’s Kuch Na Kaho that in a fit of rage he rammed his vehicle into her Honda City.

Kaal - *&^%$ ke Baal! [31 Jan 2006|08:25am]

[ mood | blah ]

Okay, I'm not all that great at reviewing movies and I don't usually comment on the technical shit about movies which everyone else seems to be so aware of. I just get tired of pretentious people who come on TV and say 'the movie is technically very good'. What the fuck?! Either the movie is good or it sucks. Since the last entry in this community was about Kaal, so, this is my review at it. Kaal falls into a category which takes the word 'sucks' to an entirely new level. Lower.

The cynic that I am, I've been accused of 'not liking' movies because I'm prejudiced either against the actors or the theme/plot of the movie. Okay, so, in all fairness, I ditched my prejudices and watched 'Kaal' objectively.

Didn't work. The movie still sucked. Here's why, first, the main actors:

a) Vivek Oberoi: He's the synonym for pussy-fart. Perfect. He's better off giving press conferences and supposedly dating Aishwarya Rai, who, by the way, is the synonym for overpaid bimbette. Did I spell that right? Does it matter?

Oberoi tries to pull this tough guy image off and fails, well, miserably would be an understatement. And his punch-line throughout the movie is 'Cut the Crap'. I wish I could punch the fuck-face and ask him to cut the crap.

b) Lara Dutta: She's got a nice butt. Yum. And she screams her head off at the slightest of opportunities. Ear-plugs, please? Acting? What's that?

c) John Abraham: Acting lessons required. He's dazed and confused throughout the movie. He's the National Geographic dude who goes there to investigate the existence of man-eaters in 'Orbit Park'. Wha..?

d) Esha Deol: First off, what the fuck is wrong with her mouth? It looks like someone punched her jaw and she forgot to get it fixed. She looks like Dharmendra, for crying out loud! Oh wait...

Secondly, she can't act. Period.

e) Ajay Devgan: Being a bad-ass dude doesn't always require you to have a constipated look throughout the movie, Mr. Devgan. Agreed, you're the 'ghost' in the movie and are incapable of emotions and shit, but hey, remember Casper?

f) The plot: What plot? Tigers, bats, creepy spiders, darkness and five bad actors. You get the picture, don't you?

g) The title: Complete bullshit. Doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

Kaal sucks. And using Shahrukh Khan in an 'item number'... The song sucks, Shahrukh's dancing is awful and Malaika is just there to make horny faces at Shahrukh. More butt show. I'm still not happy.

So, that's my second film review. Will this stop people from watching the movie? Time will tell and tell it will.
