Indian Nightmare!

October 23, 2009

salman asin

The film London Dreams stars Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn and Asin, although looking at the Salman Khan – Asin combination one would want to term it nightmare.

salman

Asin is pretty in her own right, and there is no doubt that Salman is every bit the rock star that he is called. But to bring these two people together seems like a big mistake.

Vipul Amrutlal Shah, the Director, who has also Directed Namastey London and Produced Singh is Kinng must have has his own reasons. We’ll have to watch the film on 30th October 2009 to know if he got his reasons right.

Picture Perfect!

Finally an on-screen couple that makes sense. I for one was tired of seeing Katrina Kaif with older men like Akshay Kumar, Govinda and Salman Khan. About time she was paired with someone her age, don’t you think?

At least Ranbir Kapoor had a better mix, as he was paired with older and younger women almost equally. Amongst the older lot there has been Bipasha Basu and Konkona Sen Sharma, while the younger clan has Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor.

Katrina has always been made to look a little older than she is, so she doesn’t look way younger than her partner on screen. But since Ranbir and Katrina are round about the same age, in Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani she is looking her age, as is Ranbir. What a relief!

If you’ve seen the trailers you’ll agree with me when I say they look so awesomely adorable together. I can see hints of chemistry there, whether it will work when we watch the film is what I’m waiting to know.

Missing chemistry

Kareena Kapoor and Salman Khan. What kind of a couple is that? For one, he looks way too old. True, he’s about as old as Shah Rukh or Aamir, but somehow, in the recent past he has been looking weird and not-so-smart-and-sexy. To top it all, Kareena has been looking wow. So how is this pair going to work for the audience in Main aur Mrs Khanna?

kareena-kapoor

If you’ve seen the trailers of the film, you’ll see that Kareena looks as gorgeous as ever. Kambakkht Ishq may have flopped, but she looked super hot. Courtesy her sexy figure and some fabulous clothes and accessories by Shabina Khan and Aki Narula.

Perhaps an effort has been made to give Kareena a more mature look in Main aur Mrs Khanna, so she doesn’t look like Salman’s daughter. But the fact remains that he still looks a whole lot older. She respects him a great deal (in real life), but that doesn’t mean they look good together. There is zero chemistry there!

Time to call it quits for Salman? Or maybe he should stick to playing the ever-irritating host on Dus ka Dum.

Sushmita Sen’s Men On Reel

July 8, 2009

Sushmita Sen‘s chemistry with Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan was out there for all to see in movies like Biwi No 1, Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya and Main Hoon Na. She will be back together with SRK in Dulha Mil Gaya.

But the same cannot be said about her onscreen pairing with her ex boyfriend Randeep Hooda in Karma Aur Holi.

Zindaggi Rocks with Shiney Ahuja also didn’t carry the same magic.

She will be seen with Govinda again in Do Knot Disturb.

Katrina-Neil-John

June 16, 2009

Katrina Kaif, Neil Nitin Mukesh and John Abraham are starring in New York (2009). And this is what happens when three good lookers get together, single or otherwise.

175-2

Even as Salman Khan was rumoured to be involved with Claudia Ciesla and Asin, the rumour mills played match maker and linked Katrina Kaif and John Abraham. Bipasha Basu scoffed at these rumours and John Abraham thought it was ridiculous. Salman Khan is yet to beat him up so maybe they were just rumours.

But Neil Nitin Mukesh was not so lucky. He answered a call from Katrina’s cell and murmurred “Hi Sweetheart” only to find Salman Khan on the other side who was clearly not happy.

New York movie is set to release soon and will see the three actors onscreen for the first time. New York songs are already being said to be worth a listen.

Hasta La Vista Baby!

This has been one ending that people have been anticipating since it began. And looks like it now has the official stamp declaring it’s all over.

The KatrinaSalman love story did not have a fairy tale ending but did have it’s moments and made a good story. It had love. It had some maar-peet too. It also had the other woman to spice things up.

Salman-KatrinaKaif

Following his nasty break up with Aishwarya Rai, it didn’t take long for Salman to find Katrina who had made her debut in the disastrous Boom. The much younger actress and Salman Khan became all the rage overnight even as the guessing game of how long she would last kicked in.

Boom

Katrina is said to enjoy a good chemistry with Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani co-star Ranbir Kapoor. Though Salman Khan helped her land roles, she became  a success in the arms of Akshay Kumar. And she was miffed with Sallu for picking a fight with Shah Rukh Khan at her birthday party, thanks to which it is rumoured that she lost out on some roles.

Salman on the other hand was first linked with Zarine, who looked like Katrina and then with his London Dreams co-star Asin for whom he bought a pup. He is also vocal about his appreciation for the German model (not a nude model as reported in the media) Claudia Ciesla. And with Kat turning down his proposal to focus on her career, Sallu doesn’t seem willing to wait forever.

No Lovin in Bollywood

May 26, 2009

Cupid seems to have resigned from Bollywood as the past week has been a quiet one.  After an overdose of couples doing it and those who stopped doing it and then again those who did it with someone else, the dust has settled.

Preity Zinta confirmed that she is single but will not get involved with cricketers, married men and actors. So you can strike off Shekhar Kapoor and Yuvvraj Singh as possiblities.

Gerard Butler is apparently going all out to woo Priyanka Chopra who seems to have nothing going on with Shahid Kapoor who now has Vidya Balan as a neighbour.

And Katrina Kaif who has not read the book How To Say No is said run to the loo every time Salman Khan pops the question.

Akshay-Katrina

May 20, 2009

Akshay Kumar gave Katrina Kaif something Salman Khan couldn’t – the big O at the box office.

Not only do they look great together, they both became each other’s lucky charms.

Katrina, with her new found success tried Yuvvraj with Salman Khan but that didn’t do anything for her.

On the other hand, Akshay, who was creating a buzz about how he had dethroned Shah Rukh Khan, fell flat on his face with Chandni Chowk to China with Deepika Padukone. Nagesh Kukunoor‘s 8×10 Tasveer with Ayesha Takia also garnered average reviews.

If Blue in which both actors come together petrforms well, they may want to stick together.

Deepika-Ranbir

April 20, 2009

Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani has Katrina Kaif and Ranbir Kapoor acting opposite each other. But love seems to have bloomed off the camera as well, if the rags are to be believed.

ranbir-kapoor-and-katrina-kaif

Several rumours have been making rounds of the Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan break up. First, Salman Khan was linked with a Katrina look alike Zarine and then with his London Dreams co-star Asin.

Adding a twist to this already convoluted tale, Ranbir’s sister said in an interview that Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor were never a couple after Deepika and Ranbir have publicly acknowledged that they are seeing each other for many months now!

Is this the end of one relationship and the start of a new one?

Will Ranbir dare to mess with Salman Khan?

Should Deepika make a graceful exit?

Whom will Katrina choose?

Was Asin telling the truth when she said she has never had a boyfriend?

Stay tuned………

V for….

April 15, 2009

Amidst rumours of break ups, there is news of one new couple on the block. A very unlikely one at that. Vivek Oberoi has risen out of the ASHes to pair up with Vidya Balan.

Vivek Oberoi was involved with a model, I think, whose name I can’t care to remember. Then he landed the Miss World Aishwarya Rai, on the rebound after breaking up with Salman Khan. Oberoi wandered around with a love sick look while Rai barely acknowledged her relationship with him.

And then Ash tied the knot with Abhishek Bachchan leaving Oberoi, an angry and broken man. And now he has Vidya!

Vidya Balan on the other hand is a woman who is linked with any and every actor she works with. Bipasha Basu must be thrilled with this piece of  news. Atleast now her man John Abraham is safe from the clutches of  Balan and she can breathe easy. Until Priyanka Chopra entered the picture, Vidya Balan was linked with Shahid Kapoor.

Whether it is a publicity generator or something more remains a question.
