Do you get bored bashing that many men day after day?
Actually, we don’t have to bash bozos every day. There’s romance also, alag-alag heroines aati hain saath mein (you work with different heroines). There’s lots of fun stuff to do; different kinds of characters that we get to play. In Desi Boyz, I’m playing a male escort. It’s a real life story of two boys in London who lost their bank jobs because of recession. And since they didn’t find work, they turned into male escorts. It’s not a boring job then. There are different kinds of films like Rowdy Rathore, Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai Again, that don’t let boredom set in.
* Sonakshi Sinha is tired of the reports of her sniping with other actresses...
* Amy Jackson will be dubbed in her debut Hindi film.
* Check out an interesting piece on Kaun Banega Crorepati.
The decade plus of KBC reflects another important trend of the 2000s, the rise of small-town India, points out social commentator and author Santosh Desai. “We’re looking at a generation of Indians who have embraced success before success has embraced them. The participants belonging to places we have not heard of display a strange readiness, as if they have rehearsed for this moment, rehearsed for success.” In a recent interview, Minister of Information and Broad casting Ambika Soni spoke of the increasing penetration of cable in rural areas, of a million DTH connections being taken every month, and of little DTH dishes in rural areas. Populism in TV is only likely to increase. Sushil Kumar, however, met his destiny without having ever owned a TV set.
* Deepika Padukone may be out of luck... it looks like Rana is being shelved.
* And Anurag Basu is researching for a film about a mathematician.
