Good morning! Did you ever have one of those days where it just seems like the whole world is against you? I don't know why the stars have aligned against sweet, innocent me but let's go to the gossip, although there isn't much happening today!
* Although, reading between the lines of this article is pretty hilarious. The premise is that Mani Ratnam ignored the Chennai media in favor of flashier news outlets up north and has now come crawling back since Raavanan has done so much better than Raavan but the tone, my friends! I can only assume that the author of the article must have been personally denied an interview during the first round of promotions and is now exceedingly bitter about it.
* Vikram is not looking to move to Bollywood but will do a good script in any language.
* And the film editor of Raavan defends himself against Amitabh Bachchan's comments.
* I don't know what is the most chilling part of this news news tidbit, the fact that Madhur Bhandakar is making a comedy or the fact that it is going to star Emraan Hashmi. Has either of them ever shown any sense of humor or comedic timing before? Ever?
* Imran Khan doesn't want to jinx himself about I Hate Luv Storys.
* Sanjay Leela Bhansali has not yet signed Bebo for a film.
* Kunal Kapoor talks Lamhaa:
A film that brings to attention the political turmoil in Kashmir, Lamhaa has the 35-year-old play a young politician with a history of violence. After having walked that path, his character Aatif realises that peace is the solution to the Valley’s problems. “Aatif is far removed from what I am. He comes across as normal in routine life, but carries within him a mad passion for politics,” he says as he waves back to a child on the beach who has recognised him.
* Recent losses from Kites and Raavan have companies rethinking the way films are bought and distributed.
Big Pictures is not alone in the world of film hustlers who have been hurt in the stumble. The prices it paid for the two films were pegged on the excesses of a previous era. “The prices spoken about were those prevailing then,” says Mr Lamba. “Both these films were acquired at a time when the environment was different, when studios were expecting growth,” says Manish Thukral, CEO, Indian Film Company, who is confident about the acquisition model because it works internationally for studios.
Enjoy the making of I Hate Luv Storys title song video!!!
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.
