Sunday Gossip Post!

I had to go and leave a comment on Andrew O'Hehir's Trishna review. It had just been bugging the crap out of me that he was swanning around saying that the film was a "rebuke" to Bollywood when clearly he has never seen a Bollywood film. EVERY theme in Trishna has been done and done better by Bollywood directors.

Besides, what kind of film that is going to say ANYthing about Bollywood and has a touristy view of Rajasthan doesn't get Ila Arun to perform?! It's like neither Michael Winterbottom nor Andrew O'Hehir has seen Lamhe... oh, wait. I'll bet you a billion dollars they haven't.


* Rajesh Khanna is back in hospital. Our thoughts are with you, sir!

* India Today dug around and pulled out a list that says: Hey, whatever happened to them? (Be prepared to have your heartstrings tugged...)

* Shruti Hasaan not finalized for Prabhu Deva's film.

* I kind of want to tell Prateik to give it up already but even Saif took like 13 years to come into his own so I guess we're stuck with him until people decide to stop casting him.

Asked what he has learnt in five years in Bollywood, [Prateik] said, "Hard work is the only way to success. You have to be tough, stay tough."

His philosophy remains simple: "Keep working. Don't expect anything. Do things close to the heart and work hard with passion and dedication. Be honest to your work and do quality stuff."

And... your Daily Show style moment of zen.

Oh Uday. YOu need to figure out how to style your hair so your plugs aren't soooo obvious. Also, is Nargis able to close her mouth?

I'm kind of hoping they get married and he takes her out to LA... ;P

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.
