Saturday Gossip!

Moving Weekend day one... just a quick gossip update for you!

* Top story today - Southern Stars are
boycotting IIFA. A lot of celebrities were going to miss it anyways, including Aish and Abhi.

* Read a
profile/interview with Prakhash Jha.

Looking back, one is tempted to pinpoint Gangajal, a film loosely inspired by the Bhagalpur blindings, as his turning point, but Jha has a different view. “You say the change began with Gangajal, but I think that it was Mrityudand that really set the ball rolling. It was with that film that I experimented a lot, took chances,” says Jha. “Gangajal was far more sure-footed. After that, Apaharan, a bigger step in that direction and now Rajneeti. All of these have been my attempts to make socially relevant films.”

* Katrina Kaif was spotted in
Ajmer praying for good luck for Rajneeti.

* Manisha Koirala has taken Southern actress
Hansika under her wing on the sets of the Tamil film Mappillai.

*
Khatron ke Khiladi 3 has run into trouble. I don't know how this show would work without Akshay in the role of host. Does Priyanka know anything about stunts? I guess she just has to read the script but still...

* The
New York Times profiles Bikram Singh.

Of the stars in North America who perform Bhangra fusion — an urban take on traditional Punjabi music — Mr. Singh is “absolutely the most famous,” said Rekha Malhotra, the producer of a popular Bhangra series at the Manhattan nightclub SOB’s.

As for Mr. Singh’s fans, they don’t fully know who he is, either: Nowhere on his official site is there any reference to, for example, the work he does through Volunteer Lawyer for a Day, a state-financed program that provides people in housing court with legal aid.


* This just in: Kalki Koechlin is
adorable.

IF you got to pick your dream ensemble for a film, it would be...

Vishal Bharadwaj, Irrfan Khan, it will have Tabu and Priyanka Chopra. (Lost for a bit thinking up some male actors, we remind Kalki that it’s a ‘dream ensemble’ so she could pick anyone from Bollywood or Hollywood.) Oh, then I will definitely pick Daniel Day Lewis (she excitedly adds.)

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.
