Kamal Haasan might have never fathomed that his Vishwaroopam will earn so much brickbats even before the movie could get a proper release. First his ambitious move to release the film on DTH before the theatrical release made the theater owners see red and now, a section of Muslim radicals have objected to the film’s release. In all this chaos, Aamir Khan seemed to be the one who has come out in support of Kamal Haasan.
Talking to the press at Ahmednagar, a place in Maharashtra, Aamir said that he doesn’t see a reason to put a ban on Vishwaroopam when the Censor board has found nothing uncomplimentary in the film. The Board has passed the movie, so the ban should get lifted too. Vishwaroopam was supposed to release along with Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola but got postponed to January 25.
A few Muslim groups have had sought a ban on the movie’s screening as they think it shows the community in bad light which might hurt religious sentiments. Tamil Nadu government had stalled the release of the movie on January 23.
Well, we hope this impasse on Vishwaroopam ends sooner than later so that Haasan can breathe a sigh of relief. Many people are waiting to see the magnum opus unfurl. Reports suggest the movie’s release in Kerala has seen tremendous response. It will be wrong to deprive the Hindi audience from enjoying this Haasan presentation.

Asin made a name for herself down south by being part of some hit movies. But she never got a chance to pair up with the legendary Rajinikanth. This is one grouse she harbours. But Asin won’t jump at any opportunity to star opposite him. She wants a good script for that. She clears that she wishes to work with Rajini… If she comes across a good project, she will certainly act opposite him. It seems her wish might soon get fulfilled. Rumours suggest that Asin is in consideration to be the female lead opposite the legendary superstar in Kochadaiyaan. Presently, Asin is busy with Housefull 2 and she is pretty excited about it too. Well, Asin, we hope you get to work with Rajnikanth next year.
Post Ready, Asin will be back on the silver screen with Housefull 2. She seemed very happy with the way she has been portrayed on screen. Speaking to reporters, she talked about her look, bikini and strangely, Sonam Kapoor.
Let’s deal with one at a time. Taking her look first, Asin is very pleased with the way she looks on screen in the film. She is also getting compliments for it. She has worked on her appearance and so, Housefull 2 is an important film for her.
Moving on to her thoughts on wearing a bikini in the film, Asin points out that the film is a family entertainer and so the makers didn’t see the need to ask her to flaunt a two-piece. Anyway, the original had the girls in bikini and so, in the sequel, she went against it. But what if she is asked to flaunt one in her upcoming films? Asin added that she doesn’t think about it so much. She isn’t clear what she will do if the script demands it. She feels she might mull over it and take a decision when need arises.
When asked why she thinks, she managed to stay on in both South Indian film industry and Bollywood cohesively, Asin says that it is may be because she is a hassle-free person. No one can unnerve her very easily and that’s what she thinks made things simple for her. This has also helped her stay friends with Sonam Kapoor. They gel well because they are likeminded. They don’t mince words and are very honest with their opinions. Hence, she now feels that two actresses can definitely be friends as it depends on the nature of the people involved.
Well, it is great to know that you have an ‘honest’ friend in the industry Asin. But always remember too much of frankness can turn ugly sometimes as truth always hurts.

Simi Selects India’s Most Desirable may not have managed to be as successful as the yesteryear actress’s Rendezvous With Simi Garewal, but it did reveal a few secrets. While Deepika Padukone talked about her man Siddharth Mallya, Ranveer Singh talked about his love for Anushka Sharma. In a recent episode, even Priyanka admitted that she would love to lock lips with Deepika Padukone!
We know it sounds scandalous, but it’s not us who are telling this. Priyanka herself said it. When Simi asked her whom she would kiss if required in Dostana’s sequel, she quite easily responded saying Deepika. We won’t be surprised if Deepika is cringing on her seat reading this. We did too! Guess publicity ke liye kuch bhi karega, right PC?
Now that we are talking about Priyanka’s presence in Simi’s show, let us tell you one more thing about the episode. There is a section in the show, wherein tarot card reader Munisha Khatwani predicts stars’ future by reading out their cards. When Priyanka’s cards were dealt with, Khatwani prophesized that Priyanka will get deeply involved with an actor who is powerful and well established. He will be like a prince. Well…we hope it’s not Shahrukh Khan as he is both well established and powerful and ‘deeply involved’ doesn’t necessarily mean in love. Never mind!
We hope you find that ‘prince’ soon lest you are left with no option but to get ‘deeply involved, with actresses or married men!
So Diwali is over and so is the big tussle between Son Of Sardar and Jab Tak Hai Jaan. The space is free for Aamir Khan to flaunt his spectacular marketing tactics for his movie Talaash and here it is. According to sources, Aamir will meet investigative journalists and crime reporters across the country to get an idea of how tough their job is.
A source from the unit of the movie revealed that the marketing team was brainstorming ideas when Aamir came up with this plan. While promoting the movie, he wants to know more about these investigative journalists and their body of work. He wants to know how they deal with various circumstances that emerge due to their risky job. Since he too will be seen investigating a case in the movie, he intends to know how it is done by such journalists in reality.
Another source who knows Aamir closely explained that the actor hasn’t suddenly developed the interest to meet these people but always intended to have an interaction with them. He feels that these reporters do a laudable job in fierce situations. During the multi city promotion tour of Talaash which will take the unit to Pune, Lucknow, New Delhi and Mumbai among others, Aamir will meet these reporters. However, according to a source, Aamir doesn’t want any of them to know about his visit. He wants it sudden and spontaneous so that he gets an equally natural reaction from them.
Kareena Kapoor’s Fevicol association with Dabangg 2 is known to all. Recently, we saw a few images of her much-in-the-news item song and although the look seemed inspired, we can tell we are all set to get yet another dhamekar item number. No wonder Bebo is excited about it.
Kareena told reporters that she had a great time filming it. The pelvic thrusts that she did for the song were new to her though. She praised Farah Khan, the choreographer, for canning the song so fantastically. She is now excited to see how people react to it as it is an entertaining number. Her outfit was designed by Manish Malhotra which looked like a mix of Katrina’s Chikni Chameli and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s Kajra re.
When asked if Karisma Kapur had any contribution to the song as she had come down to the sets, Kareena cleared that she was just there to meet everyone from Salman to Arbaaz to Malaika. She wasn’t there to face the camera.
Dabangg 2 is Salman Khan’s next bonanza in the offing which has already made a great noise thanks to its quirky trailer. It will also kickstart Arbaaz Khan’s directorial innings in Bollywood. The film stars Sonakshi Sinha and Prakash Raj too and is slated to release on December 21. We hear the film has one more item song which will apparently see the Malaika Arora Khan flaunting her moves.
A Rohit Shetty movie means high on action flicks which may or may not have any logic behind the stunts. So when he decided to work with Shahrukh Khan in The Chennai Express, we were waiting to hear something on the same lines and we are happy to tell you that this movie will have the distinct Shetty touch too. Shahrukh will be seen going full throttle with action in this film.
Reports suggest Shahrukh will display stunts that people have never seen him doing ever in a movie. He is filming it in Wai, Maharashtra. A unit member of the film disclosed that Rohit’s presentations are popular for amazing stunts. Even if it is a comedy movie like the Golmaal series or a serious cop tale like Singham, action has always been the highlight. The action has always been something that whetted people’s appetite. Hence, it was obvious; he will be doing the same with The Chennai Express too. Shahrukh will do such stunts for the first time in his career.
The source continued that among the 15 days of shoot in Wai, a week has been dedicated to just filming of the action sequences. This won’t be sophisticated weaponry displaying sequences but scenes where Shahrukh will fight many villains together. Naturally, there will be a hint of action seen in South Indian movies.
Guess you can expect Shahrukh doing action sequences similar to what Ajay Devgn is known for.
