Fans are excitedly waiting to see this film. Both director and producer are hopeful about the success of this film. It will be interesting to see how much money it can earn. Can it break all the previous record as the highest earning film in its opening week?

Parmeet Sethi and the stars of Badmaash Company recently went to the Radio Mirchi studio to be part of the radio channel’s morning show Hi Delhi with RJs Anant and Sourabh. Here, they talked about the film openly. Their presence in the radio station came as the last promotional activities.

The cast also met the winners of the biggest badmaash contest by Mirchi. Stars made fun between each other. Shahid made a joke and said that director saw “badmaash ya kamina” in his face.

When the only female character of this film, Anushka, was asked of her experience with three male co-stars in the flick, she gave a diplomatic answer by saying that she started feeling like a boy herself. At this point, Shahid asked her, “How did she feel like a boy?

Other two male characters of this flick, Vir and Meiyang then and started fielding questions. Meiyang Chang, who got the fame as a former Indian Idol winner, was asked why he didn’t sing a song in his debut film. However, Parmeet Sethi gave the answer of this question. He said that people already know Meiyang Chang as a singer. Now, they can see him as an actor. He will prove his acting career what was unknown until now.

However, very few people will go to cinema theatres to watch this film as India will play their first game against Australia in the Super Eight round. All the attention will go to this match.

Lead actor of this film, Abhishek Bachchan, performed in the stage and his wife, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, was an anchor for the event.

The interesting thing is that no Bollywood singer has given his or her voice in the Hindi version of this film. Same thing happened to Tamil version where Bollywood singers like Asha Bhonsle, Sonu Nigam, and Shreya Ghoshal have given their voice. May be, director, Mani Ratnam, wanted something different.

Raavan will be released on 18th June 2010. Abhishek Bachchan has done a negative character in this film.

A list of Bollywood’s popular ex-couples

Bollywood stars catch media attention for their romantic relationships. Only few have successful relationship but most of them get split. In this entry, I will talk about the most famous Bollywood’s ex-couples.

The first couple that came to my mind was Shahid-Kareena. They are the most talked about ex-couples in Hindi film industry. It will be hard to find anyone who doesn’t know their affair. They were in serious relationship but got separated while shooting Jab We Met. It was their last movie together. Many of their fans were shocked and surprised. It is believed that Saif Ali Khan was responsible for their split as Kareena came closer to him during the shooting of Tashan. Now, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor are considered to be one of the hottest couples in Bollywood.

Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan were one of the most talked about couples in the history of Bollywood cinema. Their relationship had always been under the media scrutiny. A former beauty queen, Aishwarya Rai, and Salman Khan came closer while shooting Sanjay Lila Bhansali’s HD2CL but their relationship did not last long. Salman Khan’s abusive behavior forced Aishwarya Rai to leave him. Later, Aishwarya Rai got married to Abhishek Bachchan. On the other hand, Salman Khan is continuing his love relationship with Katrina Kaif.

The last couple in this article is Deepika and Ranbir. It has been not so long that they got separated. They came together while shooting Bachna Ae Hasino. They were very open about their relationship and talked to the media about it. Prior to the release of the movie, the couple created a big sensation. Unfortunately, the movie tanked at the box office. After the movie, their relationship also hit the rocks. Deepika blamed that Ranbir does not love her very much. She also said that Ranbir was in love with Katrina Kaif. However, it has not been cleared whether it was rumor or truth. On the other hand, Ranbir says that Deepika hardly gave him any space.

Let’s see who will join in this list.
