And read an interesting take on the link between Australian racism and homophobia.
Indian men appear to be quite secure in their sexuality. Bollywood films feature men dancing, singing, etc. Does this pose a threat to the Australian concept of masculinity?
Firstly, Bollywood is unreal. It is very far from documentary cinema, the whole genre is escapist. Some male film stars in Bollywood films may appear to be quite secure in their sexuality. I don’t know if Indian men who are not film stars dance and sing with quite as much hip-thrusting confidence. Indian masculinity to me seems to come in many different hues, some of which may challenge Australian concepts of masculinity, some of which may actually mimic it.
* SHAHRUKH KHAN KISSES A GUY! Oh, wait - the article is just talking about this lip lock with John Barrowman.
* Karan Johar awakened a sleeping giant in Rishi Kapoor - who is going on the warpath. Don't expect to see Ranbir in any more Dharma productions any time soon...
* And she may not have the clout of Rishi Kapoor but Minissha Lamba isn't too pleased with Imran Khan's comments about her on Koffee With Karan.
* Maybe Minissha can take some comfort in the fact that Imran Khan took a profit sharing agreement in lieu of pay for Break Ke Baad. Somehow, I don't think he's going to get paid all that much...
* Preity Zinta is the only man in Bollywood.
You put your film career on stake for the IPL. Any regrets?
Life is all about your own choice. And my parents have taught me to regret for things that you have done and not for those that you have not done just for playing safe. If people think that I am comfortable doing films does not mean I think the same. I would live my life the way I want. I entered this industry without any famous surname or any recognition in the industry. I came from Shimla and got recognised as one of the top heroines without any compromise. It was just my hard work that paid off. What I wished is what I got. Then I stepped into another field, which was completely my choice.
* Akshaye Khanna's character in Tees Maar Khan is based on Shahrukh.
* Anurag Basu's Barfi is going to star Ileana D'Cruz opposite Ranbir Kapoor.
* Is Anurag Kashyap's new film a remake of Subramaniapuram.
* Deepika Padukone is doing her own item song in Dum Maro Dum.
