Akshay Kumar: Sonakshi Sinha is the perfect heroine


Akshay Kumar had roped in Sonakshi Sinha for ROWDY RATHORE when she had just started off her career after DABANGG. If she was ‘rewarded’ soon enough with a song-n-dance number ‘Govinda’ in OMG! OH MY GOD, there is a leading role with a lot of meat in her characterisation with ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAI DOBAARA, which is all set to arrive.

While he is the ‘villain’ of the piece and she is the ‘heroine’, it is apparent that Akshay’s pairing with Sonakshi is as unconventional as it gets with talks of ‘pyaar mein jeena marna’ involved. One wonders how have been the dramatic confrontations between the two of them in the film.

“As for our collaboration in this film, sparks definitely flew as well as bullets,” smiles Akshay, “Sonakshi in this case is the perfect heroine that two men of such different statures could quite easily and unconditionally fall in love with.”

CHECK OUT: Sonakshi Sinha’s wardrobe malfunction averted thanks to Akshay Kumar

He continues, “From the beginning I knew that we needed a woman that could make heads of both men turn. What Sonakshi has achieved in this film is fantastic for her as an actress. She is not a little girl anymore; she is a ‘heroine’ of this industry who is respected for every shot that she gives.”

With such special words of encouragement coming from Akshay, who has given an opportunity to many a leading lady in his career spanning over two decades, guess it would only make Sonakshi strive for further perfection in years to come.

Why Chennai Express Will Be A Big FLOP


Chennai Express is releasing on EID along with OUTIMA (AKSHAY KUMAR). Chennai Express is directed by Rohit Shetty and has SRK in it.

Let us analyze why Chennai Express will not be able to collect high Box office numbers:

Story: SRK and Depika bump into each other on a train station. Couple of scenes later, they fall in love but there are some confusions (Like every Rohit Shetty film). Also there are some goons who are after them for some reason.

These kinds of story only works at single screens. So it is obvious that Chennai Express will open good at Single Screen but average at multiplexes.

1st Day Expected = 14-15 Crore

Okay, it is 95% sure that Chennai Express will receive mixed to negative reviews (like with almost all Rohit Shetty films). So expect a drop in multiplex from the second day onwards.

OUTIMA has Akshay Kumar in it, who is known as KING OF MASSES, along with Salman Khan. It is obvious that OUTIMA will also open well at both Single Screens and Multiplex because it’s for both the classes and masses. This will also affect the collections of CE.

Chennai Express 2nd day Collection = 12-13.5 core

However, Chennai Express will be Not Be able to cross 100 crore Due To Big Opponent Akshay Kumar In The Form Of Don In OUATIM.

Chennai Express Lifetime Collection = Below 100 cr.Distributors Will Loose Money and The Budget Would Be Nearly 70cr.

So It Will Be Most Probably Declared Below Average But For Many It Would Be Big Flop.

Indothaitrade.com: When did you first decide that you want to be a model?

Komal: For me it was never decided or plan to be a model. While i was working in an export company, a photographer friend messaged me saying she need to update her folio with different types of faces. And after that it was never turning back for me. Those pictures were spotted by few other professional photographers and eventually few pictures taken by different photographers were published in some catalouges and websites promoting their work such as advertising for Makeup artist, new product etc…

imageRakesh Roshan, who is presently focussing all his energy on his upcoming film, Krrish 3, is already planning ahead. After the release of the superhero flick — which sees son Hrithik Roshan reprise his lead role — he’s toying with the idea of a sequel to Khoon Bhari Maang (KBM, 1988)

The woman-centric film, with Rekha in the lead, remains one of Rakesh’s big hits. He confirms, “Yes, there is a chance that after Krrish 3, I’ll make a sequel of KBM or something along the same line.”

Rakesh admits that it’s taken him some time to gather the confidence to revisit the genre after a long gap. “It came to my mind a while ago, but then I felt that maybe it’s a bit old and people have even come out with similar films after it. Now, I am contemplating making it,” he says.

KBM stars Rekha as a wealthy widow who is nearly killed by her lover; she then sets out to exact revenge. The film also has Kabir Bedi, Sonu Walia, Shatrughan Sinha and Kader Khan in pivotal roles.

It was one of Rakesh’s experimental films, which turned out to be a big success, critically and commercially. It was his second film as a director after Khudgarz (1987).

Veteran Hindi filmmaker Yash Chopra passed away at a hospital in Mumbai

Veteran Hindi filmmaker and ‘King of Romance’ Yash Chopra passed away at a hospital in Mumbai on Sunday.

Chopra, who celebrated his 80th birthday on September 27, had been admitted to the Lilavati hospital in Mumbai last week on account of dengue infection, hospital sources said.

Chopra, known for landmark Bollywood films such as Trishul, Deewar, Silsila, Chandni and Dil To Pagal Hai, during his career spanning over five decades, had said on his birthday last month that his upcoming film Jab Tak Hai Jaan would he his last movie as a director. The film is set to hit theatres on November 13.

Lilavati hospital spokesperson said Chopra was in the ICU for the past few days.

Chopra, 80, is survived by wife and two sons, filmmaker Aditya Chopra and actor-producer Uday Chopra.

Yash Raj Chopra was born in Lahore, now in Pakistan, on September 27, 1932. He began his career as an assistant director to his elder brother B.R. Chopra and directed his own first film Dhool Ka Phool in 1959.

The Chopra brothers made several more movies together during the late 50s and 60s.

Chopra’s first commercial as well as critical success was Waqt (1965), a multi-starrer family drama.

In 1973, Chopra founded his own production company Yash Raj Films.

Though he started out in late 50s, Chopra always had his finger on the pulse of the audience and continued to deliver blockbusters in every following decade.

His repertoire includes iconic Angry Young Man films like Trishul and Deewar, both featuring Amitabh Bachchan in central roles, but in the later years Chopra was more and more associated with the ‘romance’ genre.

Reacting to the news, filmmaker Subhash Ghai said, “Yashji was the guru of industry. He was always full of energy. He will be remembered forever.”

Director-producer Mahesh Bhatt said the “news is heart breaking.”

The “baap’ of boxoffice is back with a bang! The teasers of Salman Khan’s Ek Tha Tiger is already creating waves on internet. The film is produced by Aditya Chopra and directed by Kabir Khan. This spy thriller has sexy lass Katrina Kaif as the leading lady. Within hours the teaser took the internet by wave and now Salman’s new look (with a light beard) is the latest talk of town.It has broken all previous opening day records for a video ever viewed on youtube.

Ek Tha Tiger - Teaser Trailer - Salman Khan - Releasing Eid 2012

In just two days the teaser had recorded more that 1 million views on Youtube. Earlier Dhanush’s soup song ‘Kolaveri Di’ created such impact across the nation and received more than 3.5 million hits in one week. Now it looks like Salman Khan is all set to surpass it. So far, the teaser has 1,148,934 views, 6,998 likes and 7,632 comments.

So the battle is very well on and lets see.

Porn star Sunny Leone is surely earning lots of accolades for her sweet nature and beauty. The Indo-Canadian Punjabi babe is ruling the hearts and is being showered with compliments like ‘Damn cute’, ‘innocent’.

Akashdeep Saigal appears to be most smitten and had reportedly asked Sunny to find a prospective match for him. He asked Leone whether there is anyone in her family, who is so sweet and innocent like her. He also added that Sunny is so well-behaved that people around her eventually start behaving like her.

Even Pooja Bedi feels she is the next Katrina Kaif and may get many Bollywood offers. Housemates seem to be getting along really well with Sunny Leone and have termed her as ‘Miss Namkeen’.

After an extended Eid weekend, the collections for SRK’s RA.One have dropped drastically.

“Last Monday onwards, the numbers of the SRK-starrer have been falling like a landslide. This weekend saw it collect Rs 7 odd crore, but it’s not good enough to put the film into big league,”

trade expert Amod Mehra told IBNLive.com.

A distributor based in Central India told the website, “In Central India, Bodyguard collected Rs 4.30 crore in nine days, while RA.One garnered only Rs 3 crore. So how will it recover the cost for the distributor?”
Trade analyst Komal Nahta concurs with Mehra. He writes in koimoi.com: “Now that it is established that RA.One cannot touch the business of Bodyguard in India and that it will fetch more revenues than the Salman Khan starrer in the overseas circuit, the question being asked is: Is RA.One a hit or a flop? The answer is, it is neither a hit nor a flop. On an investment of Rs 135 crore of Eros International, the corporate house will stand to make a profit of Rs 25-30 crore which means a return of 20% on investment.”

Nahta told IBNLive.com: “Though the children liked it, elders didn’t.”

While Shah Rukh Khan and Eros will make money, RA.One is not a hit as some distributors lost money. Their grievances will have to be compensated,” he said, pointing out that Eros will have to make adjustments with their forthcoming Rockstar (November 11) and Desi Boyz (November 25).

Movie expert Taran Adarsh however says the movie is a success but not a big grosser. He says, “Well, the money spent on the film has been recovered thanks to the revenue generated from theatrical and non-theatrical avenues, which makes RA.One a success. But those expecting the film to be the next big grosser after 3 Idiots are sure to be disappointed. It’s not close to Bodyguard [Rs 150 cr + nett] or Dabangg [Rs 145 cr nett]. Now let’s see if the Hindi version of RA.One manages to touch/cross Ready [Rs 123 cr nett].”


Salman Khan with Sanjay Dutt who are the hosts of Bigg Boss 5

Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt, who have been behind bars, shudder at even the possibility of participating in a show that would lock them up.

Many celebrities may have been keen to be part of a reality show hosted by Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt. But the star hosts themselves wouldn’t want to be locked in the house, no matter how much money is offered to them. Says Sanjay about staying in a place with 24/7 camera surveillance, “The contestants are getting paid. But even if any one pays me R 50-100 crore, I won’t be part of it. Aur main toh bina paise ke andar gaya tha (And I landed inside without any monetary transaction).”

In the same vein, Salman pointed out, “Hum dono toh aise hi andar gaye hain. So the question of us going in the house for any money doesn’t arise.”

Jokes apart
Even though the friendly hosts of the reality show are joking about getting inside a locked house, with cameras following you night and day, one can imagine their predicament. More so because both of them have spent considerable time behind bars — Sanjay for illegal possession of arms in connection with 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts case and Salman for the black buck hunting case near Bhawad in Rajasthan in 1998.

“I pray to God that the case gets over soon and I am set free,” Dutt has been often heard saying Khan’s cases are also on in the courts of Rajasthan.
