Amitabh Bachchan Protests against Attacks on Indian Students in Australia

Bollywood super star Amitabh Bachchan has refused to take an honorary doctorate degree from Brisbane University, Australia as a protest against attacks on Indian students in Australia. Amitabh Bachchan said that it was impossible for him to accept the degree under the current situation. A series of attacks on Indian students in Australia sparked a huge criticism in India. It was reported that the attack on Indian students were racially encouraged, though Australian police denied the claim.


Well, I think, Amitabh Bachchan has done the right thing by refusing the degree when Indian students are becoming the victim of racism in Australia. Australian government should take necessary steps to keep the situation under control. Otherwise, the diplomatic relationship between two countries could be deteriorated.

Big Budget Bollywood Movies Not Coming in June?

You might already know about the current conflict between bollywood producers and multiplex owners over revenue sharing. The industry has suffered a lot over the last couple of months due to the dispute between the two parties. A number of big budget films were slated for released before June 2000, but considering the current condition, it is pretty much certain that no big movie would hit the screen before July.


There are only two movies: Paying Guests and Kal Kissne Dekha- for which promotion is currently going on. However, even these two movies are less likely to get released at the end of June because there is no indication of the dispute being resolved. Some other big movies which were expected to hit the screen in the first half of the year are: Kaminey, New York, Love Aaj Kal, Jashnn, Kambakkth Ishq and Life Partner and Shortkut – The Con Is On.

Mallika Sherawat in Salman Khan’s game show 10 Ka Dum

Mallika Sherawat is never a top actress but because she is considered to be a hot and sex symbol in Bollywood, she is always in the media headline. I do not like her and I am not big fan of her. However, many people in India are crazy for her and they think that she has very attractive physical appearance. Anyway, she is going to be seen in Salman Khan’s game show 10 Ka Dum on May 24, 2009. In that episode, celebrity will take prize and she will get some good money. There are some rumors that Mallika Sherawat has asked for five million Rupees for appearing in the show. Now, we have to see if she can get this amount of money.

Claudia Ciesla thinks Salman Khan is talented

It seems to me that now Claudia Ciesla is trying to follow the footstep of Katrina Kaif. She has already made good relation Salman Khan and has even praised Salman that he is a very talented actor. Naturally Salman Khan will be very happy to hear this kind of praising remarks because the reality is that for the last few years he is not in good form. His movies are not earning good money or critical appreciation. Claudia is also trying to make a good relationship with Abhishekh Bachchan and it is clear that she has targeted the Bollywood film industry.

What I don’t understand is that even if Salman Khan or Abhishekh Bachchan helps her how she can find success in India. She does not look like Indian at all. In fact, she looks like a pure European and she is from Germany of Polish origin. So, it seems that she will need to make good relation with some more other actors beside Salman Khan.

Aishwarya Rai not acting Right about Sonam Kapoor

Aishwarya Rai may be the most beautiful actress in Bollywood today. Her fans are too much eager to promote that she is the most beautiful woman on earth but there is no general acceptance in other countries. It does not discourage her fans and there is no doubt that she is really very beautiful. Aishwarya Rai is a gorgeious and pretty woman and good actress too. However, it seems that she does not have good heart. The thing she has done with Soonam Kapor has caused some unhappiness among Bollywood fans. I was reading some of the media coverages about it. What has happened is that Loreal company recently contracted Sonam Kapoor as for modeling. So, Sonam Kapoor is going to be their new face in modeling to promote their products in India. Until now, it was Aishwarya Rai whose advertisements were seen all the time and she is still endorcing the brand.

In happiness, Sonam Kapoor made a remark that caused too much annoyed feeling in the mind of Aishwarya Rai. Sonam said that she is the new beauty for the young people in India whereas Aishwariya is the symbol of beauty for middle aged or older generation. I think that this is somewhat true because Aishwarya Rai is now more than thirty-five years old and she is gradually becoming old. On the other hand, Sonam Kapoor is among a new bunch of actresses who are going to dominate the industry in the coming year. Aishwarya Rai did not take this remark very lightly and she got very unhappy. There are some reports that she threatened Loreal company in India that if Sonam Kapoor is also invited in France then she would not keep good relationship with the company. Naturally Loreal India became afraid because Aishwarya Rai is their number one face for the Indian TV viewers for many years. It should be ……….. that Sonam Kapoor would walk in red karpet in Cannes film festival but then ask her not to go there. Sonam Kapoor did not say anything about this matter but her manager was very upset and she opened her mouth to the media. Then Loreal India also stated something and it clearly showed that they were somewhat forced to stop Sonam Kapoor for not going to Paris.

In Paris, Sonam Kapoor’s father Anil Kapor was expected to go with her and introduce her to the media. But because Aishwarya Rai became very unhappy and angry this did not happen. I can not understand the problem of Aishwarya because she has got almost everything. She won the title of miss world and then she acted in many Bollywood movies. She also get married in the Bachchan family with Abhishekh Bachchan. So, she should be much higher than Sonam Kapoor in any compaison. In fact, there is no comparison between these two girls and even there is no comparison in their age. So, it is very difficult for me to understand the mentality of Aishwarya Rai about this problem. I think that she should open her mind a bit more and this can help her. In fact, this probem between these two actresses created a lot of sympathy for Sonam Kapoor and created some annoyed feeling about Aishwarya Rai.

Hrithik Roshan is Barbara Mori’s favorite interpreter

In his upcoming movie, Kites, Hrithik Roshan may have played the role of hero but he also played the role of interpreter. Hrithik Roshan’s co-star Barbara Mori, a Mexican actress and model, do not under stand English very well. Anurag Basu directed the movie. Interestingly, when Anurag explained any scene to Barbara Mori she would not understand anything. Barbara then requested Anurag to explain the scene again but this time there is no difference. Finally, Hrithik Roshan goes to the rescue. Though Hrithik Roshan also spoke with her in English but she understood it very well. The main problem is Anurag Basu speaks at a quicker pace which Barbara could not pick up as she does not speak English very well.

Kites, like typical Bollywood movies do not have any song and dance sequence. The movie tells the story of love and betrayal. Though language was a major barrier for Barbara, she worked very seriously for the movie. Hrithik Roshan spoke highly of his co-star.

Claudia Ciesla: new girl friend of Salman Khan

Salman Khan is now more than 40 years old but he is in his mind desperately wants to become teenager again. In fact, for the last at least one decade, he is acting like a teenager boy who is trying to find new girl friends. For the last two years, it seems that he was going to settle down with Katrina Kaif. Yes, it is true that there were some rumors about some other girls but now it is clear that Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are not going to get married. In fact, now in the media, Katrina Kaif is no longer associated with Salman Khan that much. In stead, it is a new model from Germany and her name is Claudia Ciesla. Claudia Ciesla is not that of a big model even in Germany and that is why, she is thinking of trying her luck in Bollywood. The same thing happened to Katrina Kaif. Katrina Kaif was from England and even she had British accent.

Katrina Kaif had to suffer a lot of problem when she came to Bollywood because of her British accent. It was difficult for people to accept her as a Bollywood actress. Then she met Salman Khan and became his girl friend. Salman Khan tried his best to promote her even acted with her in a movie. As a result, Katrina Kaif got a very big break and became famous. Now, Claudia Ciesla is doing the same thing. She has already met Salman Khan and Salman Khan is most probably interested about her. So, let us see if she can make the break. Katrina Kaif had one advantage because she was Indian but Claudia Ciesla is form Germany and of Polish decent. Her father is Polish wile her mother is German.

If we look at the past history of Claudia Ciesla then we will see that she is mainly famous in Germany for showing her body and she does not have any good thing about her duty. In face in Germany, I could not find that she has taken acted in any movie or got any award or even as a model. The only thing she could become perhaps was that she became first in Germany super girl 2006. However, there is nothing that you can be proud about her. She started modeling from the age of 15 and she has posed for different kind of pictures. Now, it seems that she is working in the movie in Bollywood.

The funny thing is that until Salman Khan became interested about her, hardly anyone outside of Germany knew about Claudia Ciesla. There has been some fake pictures of her in internet and it became very popular in India but it was fake not real. So, the way I started, I like to say that Salman Khan is a stupid actor and it is time he should leave Bollywood get married and settle in life. He is now 41 years old and after few years he will become 50. He is no longer teenage man or not even young man. He is already a middle aged man and he should learn from other actors like Shah Rukh Khan how to maintain a decent family’s life style even after acting in Bollywood.

Freida Pinto calendar pictures causing her a lot of embarrassment

Do you remember Freida Pinto? She is the beautiful and sexy actress of ‘Slumdog millionaire’. Now, it seems that she has become very famous not because of her acting but because of some calendar photos that were taken for a calendar product in 2006. That calendar, there were some very hot and spicy photos of the actress. However, at that time she was not that much famous and she did not bother. Now, what does happen is that many people have become curious and have started to pose them in different internet websites. As a result it has made Freida Pinto very unhappy. Of course, I understand her feeling and that is why, I am not putting her pictures in this entry. In fact, I am against putting any kind of bad pictures of any actress. However, the reality is that many people are fan of these kinds of things and many bloggers feel that they can get a lot of traffic by posting this kind of pictures.

My personal feeling as a blogger is that Freida Pinto is a good actress and whatever she did in her past it is her own business. She should have some privacy and other blogs and websites owners should respect her privacy. The only thing I want to request you is that if you are a blogger then think about it that if someone put pictures of your past life in internet tomorrow how would you feel. So, if you see these kind of pictures in any website or blog please do not link them because those website and blogs will become more powerful and will attract more people. I just wish that there is some kind of law in internet about private matters of people.

Aishwarya Rai vs Sonam Kapoor: New beauty vs fading beauty

It seems that Aishwarya Rai has become some annoyed with Sonam Kapoor. Recently, she became the band ambassador of L'Oreal which is a cosmetic company. You have seen in the past that there has been some advertisement featuring Aishwarya Rai of anty-wrinkle anti-aging cosmetic product of L’Oreal. So, now it is interesting to see that the company has taken Sonam Kapoor.

Ok, when it is something that       must happened because Aishwarya Rai is now nearly thirty-six and whether you like or not she is not the actress of this generation. On the other hand, Sonam Kapoor is only twenty-one or twenty-two years old and she is very young and she has the charm of youth that Aishwarya Rai does not have. It is perhaps the good time for Aishwarya Rai to become a mother and take off from the glamour industry for few years.

Famous actors, singers, dance choreographers, actresses all are appearing as judges or competitors in various reality shows in different Indian channels. Recently, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Preity Zinta were approached by producers of reality show “India’s got talent.” However, both of them backed out due to lack of time. Now, the producers are looking out for other celebrities.

 

India’s got talent” is the Indian version of the American reality show, “America’s got talent.” This show is a bit exceptional because it explores all types of talents including singing, dancing, acting and others.

 

Preity Zinta could not give time because she is now busy with the Indian Premier League. Preity Zinta is the co-owner of Kings XI Punjab. Initially, Preity Zinta was signed up by the producers for Rs.50 million. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s calendar is filled up.

Aishwarya Rai has not lost her charm yet

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is married and she is 35 years old still she is not out of Bollywood. No doubt that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is not “The Big Heroin” of Bollywood but she is still going. Her contemporaries like Sushmita Sen, Preity Zinta, Shilpa Shetty, Kajol are not full time actors. Preity Zinta and Shilpa Shetty turned business women with their IPL team. Kajol is still continuing her work but she is not doing too many movies. Sushmita Sen is now moving towards direction. Still, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is continuing her modeling and acting career. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has some good movies such Maniratnam’s Raavan, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next movie with Hrithik Roshan, Action Replay with Akshay Kumar and one with Rajiv Menon. Still now, Hollywood movie actor Will Smith is interested to work with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.  

 

It is true that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is not in the top position. Now, there are new faces in Bollywood like Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Genelia D’Souza and Deepika Padukone. Katrina Kaif is getting the highest number of endorsements. Previously, Aishwarya Rai used to endorse, Lux, Coca-cola, Nakshatra. Still, Aishwarya Rai has successful and long standing international endorsements. Aishwarya Rai endorsed Swiss luxury watch Longines, international soap Lux and haircare brand L’Oreal for almost a decade. For these brands, she has been working since 2003.  

Aishwarya Rai: The highest paid actress in the Indian cinema

After marriage, Aishwarya Rai is not seen in many movies but that does not mean that the actress is not working. Currently, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is working with Rajinikanth in Robot aka Endhiran. Rajinikanth is the superstar of South Indian cinema and one of the highest paid actors of the Indian cinema. Interestingly, Robot is one of the most expensive movies ever made in India. The production cost of the movie is a whopping Rs. 1200 million. For playing the female lead in the movie, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was paid Rs.60 million. This also makes her the highest paid actress in the Indian cinema.

 

Robot is directed by famous South Indian movie director, S. Shankar. Shankar can be referred as the Karan Johar of the South Indian cinema. In Bollywood cinema, Karan Johar is known for making movies with lavishly built sets and heavyweight Bollywood stars. Shankar also follows the same strategy. All his movies have great star casts and shot in exclusive locations all over the world. Shankar has worked with both Rajinikanth and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. So he has a very good idea about them.
