Monday Gossip!

Today in gossip - More tributes to Shammi Kapoor; Ranveer Singh may do a South Indian masala remake; and trailer for another three hero film... Shakal Pe Mat Ja! (And a few other odds and ends...)


* BBC Love Bollywood says good-bye to Shammi Kapoor - if you have time, listen back on the iPlayer.

* Shammi Kapoor's last on-screen appearance will be in Rockstar.

* Photos from the cremation ceremony.

* In one of those generic interviews for Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, Katrina Kaif says there are no camps in Bollywood.

"There is a problem, there is a misconception that the media has (that there is a camp system). We all have different equations. Friendly, not so friendly, but everyone respects everyone's individuality. There are really no camps or something like that," Katrina told IANS in an interview.

Ah... if only it were so. Then we might get that Vivek-Abhishek two hero flick produced by Yash Raj and directed by Rohit Shetty that we've all been after.

* Pooja Gupta is out of a Sanjay Dutt film...

The team, which consists of Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon, Mohanlal, Anupam Kher and Kabir Bedi, apparently requested her to reconsider, but Gupta was adamant. According to director Sojan Joseph, "Puja struggled in her scenes. But she left suddenly." According to one of the film's principal actors, Gupta quit because she did not want to star against a newcomer like Ruslaan Mumtaz.

There has to be more to this story because the Pooja Gupta I saw in F.A.L.T.U. seemed competent enough for anything a Sanjay Dutt starrer would throw at her. I wonder if a) she was being pressurized to do something she didn't want to or b) she realized that being in a Sanjay Dutt starrer these days is something only washed up starlets like Ameesha Patel do. (Sorry, Raveena, but you know what I mean...)

* This Washington Post article is total bullshit...

The characters in Katohora’s film engage in extramarital sex, smoke marijuana and drink copious amounts of red wine and Scotch whiskey — a stark contrast to traditional Bollywood films that frown upon the slightest displays of on-screen affection.

Maybe that was true 10 years ago but things have changed, brother... Can't they get somebody who KNOWS about Bollywood to write about it?! Sigh.

* Be still my heart... Ranveer Singh plus South Indian remake is something I want to see.



It looks like three heroes is the way to go these days... this film looks fun! Trailer for Shakal Pe Mat Ja.

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.
