Saturday Gossip!

Today in gossip - I don't care about fabricated link-ups (you know who I'm talking about) and I don't care about the carbon copy reviews of Ek Main aur Ekk Tu!
Sad news first.

* Struggling actress Ruby Singh has committed suicide.

* After watching Yaadein, I have trouble taking anything Subhash Ghai says seriously. And I feel much more sorry for the students of Whistling Woods who may have their studies interrupted than Ghai's thwarted ambitions.

* Don 2 team is caught unprepared by the non-Indian media in Berlin.

Though they refused to accept that the film was a deliberate attempt to get away from the Bollywood mould to gain international acceptability, and insisted that it was developed 'organically', there were no takers to this argument. Even the German co-producer of the film Mathias Schwerbrock did not seem to agree with them and spoke about the film being a fusion of Hollywood and Bollywood elements.

I would love to see the footage of this!

(ETA: Accurate review of Don 2 from the Berlinale.

With only one bone fide dance number, however, Don - The King Is Back is a puzzler for non-Indian audiences - its laconic pacing fails to punch through a 140-minute running time and some of dated Bond-style sets may sit awkwardly with viewers fed on Mission: Impossible (from which it liberally borrows).

* Race 2 producer Ramesh Taurani filed a complaint against Deepika Padukone for walking out of the film.

* John Abraham is learning Marathi for Shootout at Wadala.

* Ala Modalaindi to be remade in Hindi?



New trailer for Jodi Breakers!!



Trailer for Maalai Pozhudhin Mayakathiley, which is either going to be brilliant or extremely dull.

Have I missed something about Jodi Breakers? I'm actually looking forward to it, but it does sound like a remake of L'arnacoeur, a Romain Duris vehicle. Does the fact that I've not read anything about this mean that those who follow BW and write about it have conceded defeat, and accepted that fast turnaround knockoffs are the way things are?

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.
