Friday Gossip!!!!

Good morning, all! I hope all you Americans had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

De Dana Dan opens today and it has been getting good reviews - it looks like the team of Akshay, Suniel, Paresh Rawal, and Priyadarshan has worked its magic again!

Let's see what gossip is making the rounds today:

* Another interview with Katrina Kaif in which she doesn't really say anything and no follow up questions are asked.

With such good success coming your way, the throne of No. 1 doesn't seem too far away. So why do you or any other actor for that matter shy away from talking about reaching the top position?

Really, actors never get into the number game because it is of no use. See! The point is that if you say that you are there, what is left to achieve? Nothing! right? The best part is to just keep moving on and pick the best roles and filmmakers that come your way.

* And one with Akshay Kumar:

Meanwhile, you don't seem to be having too many friends in the industry though. It seems like they are waiting for a movie of yours to crash so that they can attack you. Any thoughts?

Let's be cognizant of the fact that no one is anybody's friend in this industry. It's impossible actually, and everyone knows it. People befriend people to get somewhere in life. This is not a dig, it's purely human nature. "I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine, now come over for dinner while I charm you and your wife" - this is how every industry works.

Of course, Akshay being Akshay, he manages to be hilarious and cute while not answering the questions.

* Ranbir Kapoor might be in Mani Ratnam's next film! The film is said to portray Muslims in a positive light, which will hopefully go some ways in counteracting the terrible stereotypes in films like Kurbaan.

* Debut director Umakanth Thumrugoti (formerly with Disney) lamented the lack of "family fare" in India. He offered his own film (7 Days in Slow Motion) about academic pressures on children as a counterbalance. I'm actually going to go out on a limb and call "B.S." on this one. I say that there are plenty of films in India that one can watch with the entire family - what India doesn't churn out are those dreadful "children's films" that nobody except hyperactive 8-year olds want to want. The whole family can enjoy something like Aladin or Dil Bole Haddipa without them being specifically "children's films." And speaking of - serious fare about the lives of children is usually meant for adults. Think of Slumdog Millionaire, which featured child actors for most of the movie - that was NOT a film meant for the entire family to watch.

* My imaginary boyfriend John Abraham is going to make a documentary on Tiger conservation.

I don't know how many of you are on twitter (myself = @filmigirl ) but Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) tipped us off to his new song promo for Chance Pe Dance!

I approve of the fact that Shahid's shirt doesn't button up :)

Note from Filmi Girl:

I love Bollywood - and all the ridiculous things that happen in Bollywood - but it doesn't mean that I can't occasionally make fun of various celebrities and films.

If you don't like my sense of humor, please just move on by - Trolls are not appreciated and nasty comments will be deleted.
