Tuesday Gosssssip!

In gossip today - find out who was at the Punjabi Virsa Awards; who is overplaying the homophobe card; ponder the logic of casting PC in yet ANOTHER multi-role film; and read about some exciting new films! (Well, at least one exciting new film!)

And MORE!


* Sad news - Aparna Sen's father film critic Chidananda Dasgupta passed away in Kolkata.

* Bollywood stars are no longer
larger than life and neither is their fashion.

"Does Bollywood have a superstar? The answer is no, we don't have a starry-eyed image whom people would look up to. They are so approachable now. All the heroes and heroines you see are over-exposed; their visibility is way too much for people to absorb a particular trend. The point is there is no exclusivity any more," Kolkata-based designer Joy Mitra told IANS.

* The Punjabi government
gets serious about Punjabi stereotypes in films.

The language minister seized the occasion to take on Bollywood for its "wrong and non-serious depiction of punjabi characters". Sekhwan appealed the representatives of media entertainment Industry to be "very careful on this front as even inadvertent action attracts the public anger thereby posing a serious threat to the social fabric of any region".

*
Shaitan actually has two same-sex kisses. I don't how Shiv Pandit's describes his reaction, though...

“Out of nowhere, I was asked to kiss Neil. I did it and Bejoy called ‘Cut!’ It was over within seconds,” he adds, admitting that he instantly ran to the washroom to gargle and clean his mouth. “That took me a few minutes.”

Really? You gargled? Isn't that overkill a bit?

Kirti's discussion of
her kiss with Kalki seems much more honest - she simply says it made her uncomfortable... much as wearing a bikini onscreen did! Perfectly understandable reaction without being overly judgey. You know they always say that the people who are the loudest homophobes are the ones with something to hide...

* Some "source" has a hilarious grudge against
Shazahn Padamsee and claims she was being overly demanding of her staff.

* Mahie Gill talks about
her new role.

Did you ever consider that after essaying such a dark role, you might be perceived negatively, especially since Neeraj's parents have expressed their displeasure about the film?

I understand the concern of Neeraj's parents. However, the film does not depict their son badly. It was unfortunate that such a thing happened to him. With regard to the perception of people, I have no idea if I will be labeled negatively. If I find anything interesting, I take it. I don't know why I am being offered such characters, which are very difficult for me to essay, but at the end of the day it is just a film.


* Nana Patekar is making a
May-December romance film and guess who is playing the "December?"

* Prateik Babbar in
Romeo and Juliet? Yes, please! It will be directed by former SLB composer ismail Darbar.

* This is the kind of news that makes me want to say: Ai yooooooooo! Really? The world needs Priyanka Chopra to play
four different roles in a new film? What about the lack of success of WYR and 7KM made Kunal Kohli think this was a good idea? I'm SO TIRED of these gimmicky films! Give me some REAL EMOTION, BOLLYWOOD!

* And, also, the world really doesn't need
Sonu Nigam acting either. Really, we're good with hearing him sing.

Check out some photos from the PUNJABI VIRSA AWARDS!

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.
