    Kalki Koechlin in Soni Razdans Love Affair 

    After her friend Gulshan Devaiah was roped in to play the role of naval officer K M Nanavati in Soni Razdan’s next directorial titled Love Affair, it is Kalki Koechlin will play the role of his wife Sylvia Nanavati.

    Sylvia, wife of Kawaz Manekshaw Nanavati, was born in England and later married the naval officer in her homeland. She had three children, two sons and a daughter. While Nanavati was always away trying to protect the nation, a lonely Sylvia fell in love with Prem Ahuja, a friend of her husband. However, Nanavati got hold of the secret and in a fit of rage killed Prem. Though producer of Love Affair, Pooja Bhatt has maintained that Soni’s film will only have its premise inspired by the popular Nanavati case, we hear that even the sketch of the roles played by Kalki and Gulshan will bear resemblance to the real life story.

    Earlier, we had even reported that Chandan Roy Sanyal too has been roped in for the film. He will be seen playing the role of lawyer Ram Jethmalani. Ram was the Special Public Prosecutor of this 1959 case. In fact, Pooja and Chandan even contacted the lawyer while they …read more

    Rape scene used for promoting film called Pocket Gangster 

    Today when filmmakers and more so the PR agencies are constantly looking out for that one eye catching fact about a film to promote it, there are few who can also go extremely outrageous in the process. However, taking to another level was the recent press release that was received as a part of a press plug-in from a PR to promote the film Pocket Gangsters. Shockingly, the headline for the release read, “Pocket Gangsters rape scene featuring Shivangi Mehra and Vijay Raaz goes viral on FB”.

    If that wasn’t enough to add more to the over active imagination, the PR agency went ahead and decided to attach a few more clips and links to the mail, which were titled as follows:

    ‘Hot Shivangi Mehra bathing scene from Pocket Gangsters’

    ‘Shivangi Mehra refuses to wear a bikini for Pocket Gangsters’

    ‘Vijay Raaz insists on 15 kissing scenes with Shivangi Mehra in Pocket Gangsters’

    ‘Bikini babe from the song Jaaniya promo of Pocket Gangsters’

    ‘Red Hot clip from the song Jaaniya promo of Pocket Gangsters’

    Furthermore the first paragraph of the release goes, “A clip of a rape scene from the film Pocket Gangsters featuring Shivangi Mehra and Vijay Raaz has gone viral on Facebook with …read more

    Shah Rukh Khans Fan to release in Eid 2015 

    While Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan have been on a constant lookout to capture the Eid releases for past couple of years, for 2015, it is going to be Shah Rukh Khan who will be seen on the silver screens. Though initially it was SRK starrer Raees that was slated to release during this auspicious occasion, now we hear that, it has now been decided that Yash Raj Films’ Fan will be releasing during the Eid weekend of 2015. In fact, a puja for the film was organized by the makers to kick off the shoot schedule of the film along with Shah Rukh Khan today.

    We also hear that Shah Rukh Khan therefore would now start shooting for Fan once he wraps up the promotional activities of Happy New Year. In fact, the actor would be working on Raees, which is produced by Excel Entertainment later, considering that now Fan is slated to release before.

    Fan is to be directed by Maneesh Sharma and written by Habib Faisal. The film is produced by Aditya Chopra. …read more

    Real to Reel

    Telling it straight 

    Krishnakumar Kunnath aka KK needs no introduction. The singer, who was initially heard in the Maachis number Chodh aaye hum (1996), has survived almost two decades in the industry. In fact, his range and popularity as a singer only seems to amplify with the years. Recently, his songs Tune maari entriyan from Gunday, Soniyo from Heartless and Piya aaye na from Aashiqui 2 made it to the chartbusters and became the pride of every music channel. That he has been unswerving in his renderings is envisaged from the fact that numbers like Tadap tadap ke (Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam), Awarapan banjarapan (Jism) and Alvida (Life In A… Metro) among many have assumed a timeless flavour thanks to his soulful resonance.
    Yet KK is not someone who will grab every opportunity that comes his way. “I have been selective from the beginning. If I sing just five-six songs a year, I feel it’s enough. I believe in doing good work. Recording a song everyday is not my cup of tea.” He’s a nonconformist and he knows it. “I like doing things my way. I can’t work under pressure. If someone asks me to record a song in an hour I refuse …read more

    I want to have kids without a wife 

    There is one unavoidable truth about Salman Khan. He possesses the kind of godly fame that only a few on the planet can enjoy. It is the kind of fame that pervades everything he attempts. Yet despite this incomprehensible degree of celebrity, he’s as unpretentious as they come. The actor somewhere personifies his charitable organisation, Being Human. Perhaps the key to Khan’s breezy navigation through the pitfalls of superstardom is some strong compartmentalisation and the fact that he doesn’t take himself too seriously. Sprawled on a chair in his mini tent at Mehboob Studio, he’s smiling from ear to ear as he says, “Best to chill out and take things as they come in life. I live by that.” That affable charm and casual demeanour sets the tone for our interview, as Salman insouciantly gives us a glimpse into his movie choices, persona and more. Read on…

    At this stage of your career, has your criteria of choosing a film changed?
    No, it’s still the first narration. It all depends on that. If I hear it and my reaction is, ‘Man, I need to do this. It’s awesome.’ I’ll do it. Anything less than that won’t do. If I have to …read more
