Wednesday Gossip!

Greetings, friends! Tonight I return to my Japanese lessons after a three week break and 心配しています。Ah, well...

(And I'm done going on about the GFF but just as an example of the throwing around of the word Bollywood that I'm tired of, check out
this description of Aahish Gupta's fashion show in London. What exactly about those clothes - other than the designers Indian heritage - says Bollywood?)

Now, time for gossip!



Salman Khan's Mountain Dew ad!

* Aamir, Rani, and Kareena have begun acting workshops for
Reema Kagti's new film.

* Speaking of Bebo, she's happy leaving the
size zero tag behind and instead talks about the different kinds of sexy she is going to portray:

The focus today is on performance-driven roles and her look will be differently sensual in the five films she is currently juggling. In RA.One, she’s Shah Rukh Khan’s sexy wife. “Very Punjabi,” she laughs. Agent Vinod’s mystery miss also doesn’t shed clothes. “Her sex appeal lies in her eyes,” says Kapoor. Bodyguard’s Divya is “innocently sexy” and Short Term Shaadi’s Tiara “crazily sexy”. As for the Aamir Khan thriller, she can’t talk about that at all.

(And rumor has it she is being tapped for the
Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai sequel!)

* Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is willing to
return to India if they'll have him.

* Lara Dutta refused to pose for pictures at her
wedding, angering the press. You'd expect somebody media savvy like Lara Dutta to be smarter than that...

* The
Trisha - Fashion remake rumors are back. Sometimes I wonder how much of this is just wishful thinking about films people really want to see...

*
Raavanan is continuing to get great reviews from the Western press - although confidential to the reviewer: It's not a Bollywood film.

*
Patiala House is holding strong at the box office - it beat 7 Khoon Maaf overseas. That must be good news for Nikhil Advani, who is staring his own production house.

* WHY? Deepika and Ranbir in Ayan Mukherjee's next. (WHY?)

*
Urumi is a film that has been flickering in and out of my attention but it appears to be shaping up well. (Check out images here!!

That Raavanan review seemed so condescending in places - did you know there's "song and dance" despite heavy subject material? Isn't that "farcical"?

ARGH.

@kaitlyn I know but small steps, right? ;P

It's a shame with all this interest in Raavanan or indeed Raavan, that it doesn't inspire some proper DVD release for this film(s). I'm not really up on the structure of DVD release schedules though - maybe not enough time has transpired...

Ugh, yeah that Raavanan review is not any better than those Glasgow folks.

Here's the Urumi trailer, btw.

What an educational ad that proved to be - I had no idea there were a total of 20 peaks in my own country that ae at least 10,000 feet. If I hadn't been so skeptical of what I assumed was advertising hyperbole, I'd never have googled it and learned something. Mountain Dew IS good for the brain!

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.
