Wednesday Gossip!

Happy JUNE! You know what this means... NEW MOVIES! FINALLY! We've got Ready on Friday that is set to kick off six months of glorious, glorious Bollywood.

Today in gossip - a new song promo for Double Dhamaal, tons of film announcements, new trailers for Ra.1 and Mahesh Babu's Dookudu, and Akon's leaked song, and assorted other nonsense!



* The Mumbai Mirror finds a nice photo of
Raj Kiran, who had been thought dead by his friends in Mumbai but was found in a mental hospital in Atlanta.

* Saif Ali Khan will be
at IIFA!

* Arshad Warsi announces
another film... Zila Ghaziabad, about the mafia.

* Salman Khan was fined for
smoking.

* I'm actually looking forward to Dia Mirza and Zayed Khan
starring together in a film. Zayed always tries so hard, bless his heart!

*
Double Dhamaal will feature a Jaya Bachchan in Sholay spoof.

* Ranbir's item song
will not be in the promos for Chillar Party.

* Rajkumar Hirani and
Munnabhai 3! Will it finally happen?

* Ajay Devgn's
Singham faces problems with unpaid wages.

FWICE chairperson Mr. Prem Singh Thakur said, "It was a huge amount that was over due. A total payment of over Rs. 45,50,000 had not been made to the workers working on the film. We had to intervene and stop the shooting on the film's sets."

When contacted, a Reliance BIG Pictures official told us off the record, "Yes the shoot was stopped but the reason was a payment misunderstanding. There is nothing due now. We have done the needful.


* Akshay Kumar and Prabhudeva's
Rowdy Rathore is a remake of Ravi Teja's Vikramarkudu.

* What's up with
all the drug films?

However, trade analyst Vinod Mirani feels that formula is the main dictator. “Film-makers just follow trends. Nobody out there is bothered to give out some message to the audience. I think the audience is too intelligent to ape what’s being shown in films. Directors have a set formula within filmmaking. In a romantic film they have the rich v/s poor angle, while in others they use the element of a villain, who is either a corrupt politician or a drug dealer. Moreover, most of these drug-based films don’t even go into the core dynamics of the source of drugs or the kind of money involved in the racket,” he says.

* Siddharth Anand may have made a mega-flop with
Anjaana Anjaani but somebody else trusted him with a budget - he'll be making an action film with Shahid Kapoor.

* Vishal Bhardwaj may be the Shakespeare guy but Tigermanshu Dhulia is thinking of remaking
Hamlet.

* Anurag Kashyap is making a film for
Kalki!

* A song from
Ra.1 was leaked online... Shahrukh is sad about it.

"That was the earlier version of the song. It's very unfortunate. I am very depressed by that, more depressed than any other news that I have heard. That was the trial version. The original version is with us and I have told everyone to take a little more care," said Shah Rukh, who plays superhero G.One in the film.

OKAY! NEW SONG PROMO for
Double Dhamaal!



Aw... Kangs is so pretty! And I believe she's wearing my glasses...
DD is going to be fun!



New
Ra.1 trailer, which is exceedingly underwhelming. I'm so afraid this film is going to be a massive disappointment...

Something that does look awesome?
DOOKUDU starring Mahesh Babu!

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.
