Actor Shah Rukh Khan will kiss Kareena Kapoor in Ra One…
Actor Shah Rukh Khan who has been a decent man on screen and off screen all this while, will now go bold for his superhero flick Ra One. There’s news that Shah Rukh will do everything and anything necessary to make his movie a rage.
We hear that SRK will kiss on celluloid this time round. And it’s the gorgeous Kareena Kapoor he’ll lock lips with. The actors kiss each other in a song. It’s nothing explicit, but something that can be termed as ‘simple and sweet’ we are told.
It can be remembered that Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor, too, indulged in a romantic lip-to-lip in 3 Idiots. “I’ve kissed on screen before, it’s no big deal,” says the Kapoor lass, who always looks forward to working with the Khans. “All four of them – Aamir, Salman, Shah Rukh, Saif – are so amazing that I always look forward to doing movies with them.”
The couple seems to be following a certain set of rules of conduct when they are not with each other
BOMBAY TIMES (May 4, 2011) Deepika Padukone and Sidhartha Mallya are getting serious. It is learnt that she has warned him to stay away from other girls, following reports of him partying with Sophie Choudry at a IPL party.
The insiders inform us saying, “They are no longer casually dating. The recent developments have made us believe so. Their conduct when they are not with each other has changed dramatically in the last one-and-a-half months. Remember Sid was spotted with Sophie Choudry at a party when Dips was shooting in Bhopal? After that incident, Sid hasn’t been spotted with any other girl. and it is by design, not accident. ”
The source adds, “Also, Dips hasn’t been bonding with any other guy. The duo are not cutting off from their friends of the opposite sex, just being careful that nothing mars what they share.”
Our insider also informs that Sid’s partying ways are also under check. He has been keeping to himself even at the parties that he is hosting. “Sid has been partying all alone. He has thrown at least five parties during the IPL and since Dips has been busy shooting and travelling, he has spent the hours alone bonding with his close set of friends. Mallya’s parties are all about flamboyance and glamour in the form of best dressed and best looking people but Sid has been behaving. Their last party on Saturday night, saw More >
The actor turns down Mallika Sherawat’s suggestion to kiss him in Inder Kumar’s Double Dhamaal
Vickey Lalwani (MUMBAI MIRROR; April 16, 2011)
Just when you thought Mallika Sherawat could not surprise you anymore, she goes and outdoes her own standards of spontaneity. Recently, she managed to bewilder Sanjay Dutt with her proposition to kiss him in Inder Kumar’s Double Dhamaal.Sanjay went red in face when Mallika (left) suggested to shoot a steamy scene with him
On the sets in Mumbai, before departing to Macau for their next shoot, Sherawat suggested a steamy scene between the two, leaving Sanjubaba red in the face.
A source tells us, “Sanjay was flabbergasted by Mallika’s statement.”
The source goes on to reveal what transpired after the rather embarrassing request, saying “Sanjay is a mere actor in Double Dhamaal. How could he alter the script? Besides, he didn’t want to kiss Mallika.”
When asked how Dutt let down Sherawat’s offer, the source said, “After regaining his composure, Sanjay told her ‘No way’.”
We wonder how Sherawat is taking the lip-lock let down! Both, Sherawat and Dutt remained unavailable for comment.
Salman Khan has finally agreed to kiss on screen for the first time in his 22-year-old career
Priyanka Srivastava | Mail Today – Friday 8 April 2011 10:04 AM IST
Salman Khan has finally agreed to kiss on screen for the first time in his 22-year-old career. The superstar, who has resolutely avoided locking lips to maintain a family image so far, will be seen smooching co-star Asin in Anees Bazmee’s upcoming film, Ready. “It is not yet decided if it will be a long, passionate kiss or a short peck, but director Bazmee has managed to convince Salman that the scene is important to the script. Salman had initially refused to give the shot and it took some talking on Bazmee’s part to convince him,” said a source in the unit of the film. Salman has all along maintained that he is “not too comfortable kissing on screen”. Despite giving several blockbusters such as Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Hum Aapke Hain Kaun, Maine Pyar Kiya and Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya as a romantic hero, he has largely refrained from kissing on screen. Naturally, when Bazmee threw up the idea, the superstar was reluctant.
Salman apart, the kissing scene is also bound to arouse interest because of Asin. An established superstar in Tamil cinema, Asin has all along maintained a traditional image as an actress down South, as also in Ghajini and London Dreams, the two Bollywood films she has done so far. Lately More >

Director Rahul Sud, who’s heading the Indian team that worked on Heartbeat, says that the video is a morphing job.
Says Sud, “The Enrique portions of the video were shot in LA. The original video had Enrique and Nicole Scherzinger. We replaced Nicole with Sunidhi. It’s all part of VFX now and you’ll be surprised. If anyone can pinpoint portions where Sunidhi has not shot with Enrique once the video releases, I will change my name. It’s a very difficult job to replace somebody.”
He adds, “This is the first time such a thing is being done anywhere. I feel Sunidhi looks even better than Nicole in the video. There is one portion where Sunidhi is almost about to kiss Enrique. Getting that right is a huge experiment for us. I have spoken to Enrique, and he wanted to know how this would be done. The video will soon be completed and sent to him. Once we get his nod, we will be releasing it.”
Now Rakhi Sawant claims she refused a film with Russell Crowe as the script demanded sex scenes!
Garima Sharma (BOMBAY TIMES; March 17, 2011) Rakhi Sawant has given the world another shocker — the bombshell claims to have refused a film with Gladiator heartthrob Russell Crowe. she says she was uncomfortable at the thought of making love to a Hollywood star on screen! Have problems believing it? So do we. Meanwhile Rakhi is tom-tomming, “Mujhe do offers aaye thay, but just because of my broken English, and the bed scenes and smooch scenes invloved, I refused them.” The item girl continues, “They wanted me to do sex scenes. Gladiator ke hero Russell Crowe ke saath movie thi. They wanted me to wear a two-piece, but I was not comfortable with it. I am even okay doing a pole dance, but not smooching scenes.” But she’s totally okay playing the role of a sex teacher in a film, called Qasam Se Qasam Se, is she not? Rakhi replies, “It’s a big message that I am giving to the kids. It is also important to tell them about safety. That is my message through the movie. It’s a ‘22 crore ki picture – bahut badi movie hai.” Well, only for education, not for titillation, eh, Rakhi? Noble intentions, we must say!

The year 2010-11 could be well termed as a Renaissance year for the Hindi film industry. While big budget films such as Raavan, Kites, Action Replayy, Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey and Guzaarish failed to set the Box Office on fire, smaller films such as Udaan, Peepli [LIVE], Tere Bin Laden, LSD, Phas Gaye Re Obama & Dhobi Ghat etc. with relatively lesser known stars and debutant directors (in most cases) won both critical acclaim and commercial success.
Most of these films were made at a limited budget and focussed more on their content rather than big stars and exotic locations. An interesting part is the fact that even the marketing strategy used to promote these films was quite different and subtle targeting a niche audience.
As a unique case study we take a look at 3 such off-beat films namely Dhobi Ghat, Love, Sex Aur Dhokha (LSD) and Udaan to try and understand how an innovative marketing strategy helped in the film finding its target audience.
Any Aamir Khan Productions’ film always generates tremendous hype and curiosity given the actor’s penchant for quality cinema. If needed, Aamir could have cashed in on this very hype by promoting wifey’s directorial debut Dhobi Ghat as a film for all. However, Aamir didn’t want his loyal audience to feel cheated and adopted a marketing strategy which not many would adopt.
Perhaps, the most poignant insight came from an industry insider who notes that the More >
Sonakshi Sinha lays down terms and conditions for Race 2 (PS: Her contract stipulates ‘no kissing, no explicit lovemaking and no bikini’)
Meena Iyer (BOMBAY TIMES; March 12, 2011)
The one-film old Sonakshi Sinha has already walked her way into prestigious projects like Joker and Prabhu Devaa’s next with Akshay Kumar, an untitled film with Kamal Haasan, Race-2 with Saif Ali Khan, Dabangg-2 and Kick with Salman Khan.
Salman’s protégé does come with her share of will-dos and won’t-dos. Being the daughter of BJP Minister and yesteryear superstar Shatrughan Sinha comes with its share of advantages; and responsibilities.
A trade source says, “She is already getting paid a bomb. We hear that her remuneration for Race-2 is almost a crore and she is getting paid twice that amount for the Kamal Haasan film.’’ What’s more, according to trade circles, Sonakshi has a stringent contract. “It stipulates ‘no kissing, no explicit lovemaking and no bikini’,’’ says our source.
Because of her lineage, the Dabangg girl is allowed to dictate terms to filmmakers. Though the born-with-a-chip-on-her-square-shoulders actress refuses to divulge anything, a source from the crew of Race-2 reveals that she has made it clear to director-duo Abbas-Mustan that she is okay with doing something as hot as Katrina, but she will not do the kind of bold scenes that Bipasha did in Race.

Her steamy kiss with Gulshan Grover in the DVD of her debut film that was deleted, will now appear in the new one
Prithwish Ganguly (BOMBAY TIMES; March 9, 2011)
Katrina Kaif ’s hot liplock with Gulshan Grover in Boom (2003) is all set to return to haunt her. The actress had managed to get the screen smooch deleted from the first DVD by putting pressure through Salman Khan, who she was dating then. No one says no to Khan. But now that he’s out of her life, the kiss is making a comeback. The question that begs to be asked is why the makers want to release a fresh DVD when it’s not exactly a hot selling item. Says an industry source, ‘It is clear that the makers of Boom want to cash in on Katrina’s success. She is a top actress now and naturally there will be curiosity about a steamy scene she did, when she was a newcomer.” It’s just another way to make a quick buck at her expense.
Gulshan confirms, “It is true. The new lot will have the controversial scene, which was omitted earlier. Many years have passed since we did Boom and even I had forgotten that such a scene existed in it. But we are all set to refresh the past. The scene certainly will have its share of reactions.”
Meanwhile, the actress is clueless about this new development. However, a source from the production says, “They don’t need to inform her or get her permission for the same. She had signed a contract knowing fully well what she was doing and had got paid for it.” More >

There is tremendous anticipation about the Love Aaj Kal pair coming together again in Prakash Jha’s Aarakshan. Distributors clamouring to buy Jha’s post-Raajneeti multi-starrer are looking to see what crackling chemistry Jha creates between the pair that had set the screen on fire in Imtiaz Ali’s film.
If waiting to see Saif and Deepika in lingering lip-locks and passionate liaisons the distributors are in for a disappointment. The relationship between Deepika and Saif unfolds and develops on a college campus where the Big B playing Deepika’s father is the principal.
Says Jha, “There’s no room for any physical intimacy between Saif and Deepika. Though that’s what is expected of them I’m not forcing any love scenes into the script. And if that is a problem for the distributors and the audience, so be it. I can’t shuffle around the cards in my screenplay just to get the audience tantalized.”
A similar scenario had unfolded when after the grand success of Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani distributors expected a feast of fireworks between Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif in Raajneeti. But Jha had desisted all attempts to arm twist him into making his lead pair sizzle for the camera.
Protests Jha, “Aarakshan is not that kind of a film. The film is set on a college campus. We’re shooting in a college named Oriental in Bhopal. But we’ve changed it to Shakunatala Thakral College. The entire atmosphere and ambience are More >
