Shawn Mims, who is also known as Mims, is an American hip hop singer. This American rapper of Jamaican descent is keen to work in Hindi film industry. He is waiting for an offer from Bollywood. He wants to explore Bollywood music that is influenced by Indian culture.

Shawn Mims has been in India for a tour. He entered into Bollywood with another famous singer, Snoop Dog. They performed a track in Akshay Kumar’s Singh Is King. Now, Mims is interested to do some Bollywood tracks himself. He is open in collaborations with Indian artists. However, he hasn’t heard much of Indian music apart from some Bollywood tracks. He hopes that Asian crowd would fall for the energy that has in his music.

Western actors have been attracted by the Indian culture. Few days ago, we saw Akon to come in India to make some music tracks for Shah Rukh Khan’s sci-fi film RA.One.

Suresh Oberoi gives advices to his son Vivek Oberoi

Every Bollywood star gets inspiration from someone. Bollywood actor, Vivek Oberoi, is not exceptional. He takes advice from his father, Suresh Oberoi. He told:

"My father often advises me and says that the day you stop feeling nervous during a shot, stop acting because that means you don't care about the consequences,"

It is a universal truth. Feeling nervous during a shot is a common matter. The only thing we can do is to overcome nervousness and work hard.

Suresh Oberoi is a former Bollywood actor. He is known as the father of Vivek Oberoi. He got National Film Award for Best Supporting actor in 1987. Before that, he was nominated for the same award in 1985. There is no argument that he is a best person for giving advice. I hope that Vivek Oberoi will learn something from his father and take his career higher in Hindi film industry.

Vivek Oberoi is not a famous actor in Hindi film industry. He has acted quite a few films so far. But he has a lot of fans in India and abroad. The 33-year-old actor is now excited about his upcoming action film Prince. It will be released on 9th April 2010. Perhaps it will be the next big hit movie in India.

Hrithik Roshan sings a song in Kites

Bollywood actor, Hrithik Roshan, will make his debut as a singer in his upcoming movie, Kites. In Kites, he sang a song. Hindi movie lovers are eagerly waiting for the music album release of Kites. The music album is expected to hit the market pretty soon. Kites will be released on May 21st 2010. Hrithik Roshan, the lead actor of this film, is feeling nervous about the song. He is scared thinking about whether it would be accepted by the Hindi movie lovers or not. In a quotation, he said that he is embarrassed and nervous. He expects comments from the listeners about the song. He also said that he decided to sing the song to avoid the lip sync.

However, Hrithik Roshan is not the only actor who sings a song for a film. May be this common trend in Bollywood was made by some veteran stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. Hrithik Roshan has just followed their foot steps.

Scottish has developed a new “Indian Plan” to attract Bollywood

Now-a-days, we can see that many Indian film makers chose Eastern Europe and Switzerland as a film location. If you are fan of Hindi movie then you can see that most of the films were shot in these two countries. However, I think that Scotland can be a next location for Bollywood. Film producers can select this country to make the film.

Scotland has plans afoot to promote itself a good filming location to Indian film production companies. To be promoted as a film location to Bollywood, Scottish government has developed a new 'India Plan'. This plan is designed to boost links between the two countries in education and science, tourism, trade, and investment and culture. That could see a rise in the number of Bollywood films shot in Scotland.

In the past, we could see that Scotland had been a popular location for Indian film production companies. It is used as the substitute for Kashmir and filming in Edinburgh. I hope that this plan will help both countries to develop their economy.

Scotland is the best place for filming. Its weather is suitable for film making. I hope that Indian government and film producers will take this plan with importance.

If “Love Sex Aur Dhokha’ and ‘Shaapit’ can make challenge against IPL 2010

Despite the third edition of Indian Premier League is getting all the excitement, the two new released movies ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’ and ‘Shaapit’ are perhaps going to make a good business in the box office. It is expected that these will make cheers to the Hindi movie lovers. No doubt, they will have to face a tough challenge to turn the audiences’ attraction from IPL. However, these two movies will create an opportunity for audiences to get some entertainment.

I think you already know that both ‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’ and ‘Shaapit’ have been released today on 19th March 2010. It is really difficult to predict how they will perform in the box office.

‘Love Sex Aur Dhokha’ is a low budget movie. The title of this film will obviously attract the audience in theatres. If you think that this movie is full of obscene scenes then you will be disappointed. This film will use “You are being watched” as a tagline. Its terrific title song and some eye catching promos will be the centre of main attraction. It is expected that this film will earn 50% revenue in the opening day.

‘Shaapit’ is expected to be another successful movie in the box office. If you are the fan of horror movie then you should watch it. In this movie you can see the mixture of both horror and romanticism. It is the third film in the trilogy of Vikram Bhatt’s horror films after ‘Raaz’ and ‘1920′. Let us see if audiences take this film positively.

However, sports based film “Lahore” is another movie that can hit the box office. Fans will be watching to see if Sanjay Puransingh Chauhan gets success as the director.

The day of Goundamani in Google Trends India

I was surprised to see that most people were searching about Goundamani today according to Google Trends India. At one stage, in the 20 hot search items, there was just topics related to this Tamil Actor.

Even now, I could find the following topics:

1. goundamani

2. goundamani dead

3. goundamani death

4. goundamani died

It is really interesting for me because I did not know about him. Well, he is a legend in Tamil Cinema.

I am not sure if he had died or not but there were rumors. Anyway, there are two entries that might of interest to you written by Mehdi Hassan in South Asia Blog:

Goundamani: The comedy king of Tamil cinema

Tamil comedy actor Goundamani dead: No confirmation yet

Will 'Lahore' Hindi movie be released in Pakistan?

The upcoming Hindi movie 'Lahore' is set to release world wide on 19th March 2010. But Pakistan censor board denied its release in this country. The only reason is that this country has suspected that the movie has portrayed Pakistan in a negative light. However, the producer of this film has said to the media that the film speaks about the peace between these two countries.

Certain scenes of this film had been objected by the Pakistan censor board. In one scene, it was shown that a Pakistani girl asked for forgiveness from an Indian character. However, the title ‘Lahore’ also made criticism in Pakistan. The court dismissed a petition to ban Indian films in Pakistan. May be, the clash between these two countries is not selecting the Pakistani players in the third edition of Indian Premier League.

Debutant director Sanjay Puran Chauhan’s 'Lahore' movie has already got many international awards including the best actor award for the newcomer Aanaahad at Tenerife International Film Festival in UK and Salento International Film Festival in Italy.

Sanjay Puran Chauhan is upset for this news. He said that this movie speaks about peace as the tagline 'Beyond borders, between Nations lies a battle to end all wars', implies.

Lahore is made based on kick boxing. Some parts of this film were shot in Lahore. I hope that it will be the next big hit movie in India.

Today on 14th March 2010 Bollywood megastar Aamir Khan has turned 45. It is obviously a special day for him. A lot of fans came with gift and bouquets to wish him on his birthday. Fans should expect that he will celebrate this day in a special way. However, this legend actor has confirmed that he will not celebrate his birthday this year because of the death of his father.

One day before his birthday, he spent time with talented filmmaker James Cameron and gave him company in a seminar title by “Future of cinema”. Cameron is keen to cast the actor in one of his films.

Despite standing at the mid-age, he is still looking like a teenage boy. He is ageless. I would like to wish him happy birthday. I hope that this histrionics and perfectionist will give us more hit films in future. Best of luck to Aamir Khan.

Isha Ambani: Famous for a Day

Isha Ambani is neither a Bollywood actress nor a TV actress. She is not exactly a very pretty girl either. Still, today, in India, people became more interested about her than any beautiful actress you can think of. Isha Ambani is a rich heiress and she is a billionaire thanks to her father.

When I saw her name in Google Trends my first reaction was that she must be a spoilt girl as she is very rich at a very young age.

After reading the entry of Mehdi about Isha Ambani in South Asia Blog, I got surprised that she has a very simple life style. She does not waste a lot of money after her dress. She is not like any of the spoilt girls from rich families. Instead, she is serious about her studies and she tries to learn about the family business.

I wish Isha Ambani all the success in her future life. She should try to become a role model for Indian girls. It is time that women like Isha Ambani becomes the role model instead of Bollywood actresses in India.

My Name Is Khan has become the highest grosser Bollywood movie in UK

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan starrer My Name Is Khan did not success in India but it has created a record in US and UK box office. This movie has grossed over 2.5 million pounds and also has become the biggest ever Bollywood film at the UK box office. Before that My Name Is Khan also wins the heart of US people and breaks all previous record in US box office.

MNIK has been directed by Karan Johar. It was his second hit movies in USA and UK. His another movie Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham also made record in both box office which was released in 2001. Both Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol acted in this movie in two important roles.

It shows that Hindi movie industry is progressing well in abroad. It has special impact to the foreign viewers. I hope that this success will go on not only for SRK but also for other actors too.

Akon will record a song for RA.One

If you are the fan of hip hop rap song then you should obviously know Senegalese-American star Akon. This 36-year-old rapper has huge fans around the world. However, he is now in India. He will record a song for the movie soundtrack of Anubhav Sinha’s RA.One. He confirmed his agreement to work in this film in the presence of both Shah Rukh Khan and Kareena Kapoor.

However, both lead stars greeted Akon in traditional Indian style. Kareena Kapoor gave him tika while Shah Rukh Khan showered him woth petals. Akon sang his hit song Beautiful and dedicated it to the Kapoor girl. He also sung a few lines in Hindi.

You should know that RA.One is a science fiction action film. This film will feature Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and actress Kareena Kapoor in lead roles. With this film Shah Rukh Khan will become super hero. I have doubt about his success as a super hero. However, we can wait to see how he performs as a super hero.

IPL will replace films in movie theatres

Because of the limited seating capacity, many cricket fans can not enjoy the match live on stadium. It should be a pathetic matter for cricket crazy people because watching live match on stadium is really exciting matter. However, if anyone misses the chance to hold a ticket for a crucial match in the third season of Indian Premier League then don’t lose your heart. You can enjoy the match live in a big screen with the nature of stadium. You may know that for the first time in India IPL matches will be screened live almost 800 theaters. Among them 65 theatres in Delhi and NCR will show the matches live. The price of the ticket will be between Rs. 100-300. No doubt, it is reasonable price and you are able to afford it. So, I think that you will enjoy the game live in a big theatre or multiplex cinema hall.

No doubt, it is a good news for sports lover but at the same time it is bad news for movie goers’ people. It is a bad time for movie makers. This time hardly anyone will go to watch any new movie. Let us come to see how producers and directors earn profit at that time.

  2. Raj Kapoor
  3. Amitabh Bachchan
  4. Rajesh Khanna
  5. Dharmendra

  7. Salman Khan
  8. Shahrukh Khan

9. Akshay Kumar

10. Ranbir Kapoor

Dilip Kumar is leading the list. Two Kapoor members have got place in this list. One is Raj Kapoor and other is Ranbir Kapoor. No doubt, the inclusion of latest Kapoor member in Bollywood, Ranbir Kapoor, will make you surprise. He is new face in Bollywood and he has acted a few movies. However, despite being a new face and acting in some hit movies, he is compared with some top Bollywood actors. My prediction is that he will be the future super star in Hindi film industry and he will replace Shahrukh Khan in the near future.

You may show argument for some reasons but I hope that you will admit one thing that these talented actors have great contribution in Indian Film Industry over the last six decades.

Mahesh Bhupathi and Lara Dutta were seen together at the 55th Filmfare Awards

There was a rumor about the relationship between Indian tennis ace Mahesh Bhupathi and Bollywood actress Lara Dutta. Even some media made hype about them reporting that they were seen passing some times and gossiping with each other. However, this rumor came out as a true when they were caught together at the 55th Filmfare Awards function. It was their first public appearance. They were the main attraction of this function. This pair dropped all their pretences and walked the red carpet together.

What it indicates is that Mahesh Bhupathi has been separated from his wife Shweta. On the other hand, Lara had broken up with Dino Morea. I will not be surprised if I see both of them acting together in a film. Recently, Mahesh Bhupathi has taken retirement from tennis. It is heard that he will act in a film. However, nothing has been revealed about it. The question is that how long they will continue this relationship.

Amitabh Bachchan and Raj Kumar Santoshi will work together in a film

It will be amazing to see both Bollywood Shehanshah Amitabh Bachchan and veteran filmmaker Raj Kumar Santoshi to work together for a film. I hope that this movie will get more attraction if we can see Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai in this same movie. They were seen acting together in ‘Khakee’. However, movie lovers can see them again in ‘The Outsider’. It is heard that Amitabh Bachchan will act in a lead role where Raj Kumar Santoshi will direct this film. Other actors have not been finalized yet. To sign in this film, Amitabh Bachchan has come back from exile and made exemplified. What was the reason? May be, he had not been offered any good roles.

I will not be surprised if I can hear any argument about him for this film. Some can say that Amitabh Bachchan has become aged and he is not suitable to act in a lead role. Director should find someone in the place of him. However, if your opinion is like that then I have to say to you that it is wrong. Amitabh Bachchan’s last three movies ‘Paa’, ‘Rann’ and ‘Teen Patti’ hit the box office. So, I think that he is the best option for the lead role. Let us see if this movie can become the next big hit in box office.

Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge: Movie review

Title: Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge

Director: Ashwani Dhir


Ajay Devgan...... Puneet

Konkona Sen Sharma...... Munmun

Paresh Rawal...... Lambodar Bajpai (a.k.a Chachaji)

Satish Kaushik

Akhilendra Mishra

Sanjay Mishra

Viju Khote

Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge would remind you of old day romantic comedy movies like Chupke Chupke, Golmaal, Chitchor or Khatta Meetha, but the movie is not so phenomenal. It tells about guests who overstay their welcome and create problems for people. This is very much true for couple both of whom is working and after coming home from a hectic schedule found out their peace and privacy is interrupted by an annoying guest. Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge tells the story of Puneet and Munmun who lives in Mumbai and both are quite successful in their profession. Their peaceful lives turn topsy-turvy when a distant uncle named Lambodar Bajpai a.k.a Chachaji comes to their house. At first they thought that Chachaji would stay for some days but he overstays his welcome and with he brings in lots of trouble. Puneet and Mumun become tired of Chachaji and devise plans to throw him out. The main problem of the movie is that the characters are not so strong and there are some problems in the story. For example, Puneet never asks Chachaji about his reasons for coming and how he is related. The movie has its funny moments but the director repeats them too much which at one point looks embarrassing. Overall, Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge is a decent comedy movie and you would enjoy it. So go and watch.

Ranjitha is now More Famous than Any Tamil Actress

Sometimes, fame may come for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. It seems that the same thing has happened to Ranjitha. I am not even sure that Ranjitha was the woman with Paramahamsa Nityananda or not. However, some people are already sure and that is why now they are crazy for searching about her. Paramahamsa Nityananda is supposed to be a holy man with more than 2 million followers in the world and many of his followers now think that he is the victim of a conspiracy. On the other hand, many people are angry with this so called holy man and there has been some news of attacks of a place belonging to Paramahamsa Nityananda. I am giving a video of this matter here from YouTube:

As for Ranjitha, she has suddenly become too much famous in the wrong way. Now, people are crazy to search about Ranjitha hot videos in Internet. Anyway, it seemded to me that she was not that much of a famous of an actress as I could not find her name at List of Tamil film actors in Wikipedia and I did not find any information on Ranjitha.
